A word from our editor:

The Richmond Review • Page A3

The Richmond Review’s Guest Editor: Brittani Faulkes

Arts and culture—what does this mean to you? To me they embody the intense spirit of a community, something that provides and prompts an unstructured equality and solidarity. I take great pride in our community’s arts and culture. Richmond has so much to offer to its residents and visitors. We have a full spectrum of the arts—performing and visual, public art and civic venues, and for all ages. The arts unify us while providing enjoyment and enriching our lives. Having an opportunity to act as guest editor for this special edition on the arts and culture in Richmond has been a wonderful way to lend an affirming voice to our local attributes and encourage readers to embrace what our city has to offer. — Brittani Faulkes

Rob Newell photo Brittani Faulkes in her Steveston home art studio. Faulkes accepted the Review’s challenge to be guest editor for this edition.

Faulkes seeks ‘positive, affirming spin’ for the arts by Todd Coyne Contributor The Richmond Review chose this week’s guest editor—our first ever—for the same reason that she chose Richmond: To tap into the heart of the city’s thriving yet often underreported arts scene. After growing up in Nanaimo, travelling the world and eventually settling on Vancouver, painter Brittani Faulkes said she longed for the kind of tight-knit arts community she had experienced on her

travels but wasn’t finding in the fragmented Vancouver arts scene. Moving to Steveston in 1993, Faulkes said she finally found what she was looking for. “Demographically there’s a lot of artists living in the area, particularly painters and writers, just a very high density of them,” Faulkes said, calling Richmond’s arts scene an onion whose layers she still finds herself peeling back to reveal new treasures. “And you find yourself and you find each other and end

up becoming a communitas... and sort of a magnet for other artists.” Even with such a core artsoriented community, however, there have been some major bumps in the road for local artists, galleries and performers trying to gain wider acceptance among the public in Richmond, Faulkes said, citing some of the responses to public art during the 2010 Olympics as an example. It’s for that reason, Faulkes said, that she decided to apply for the Review’s guest

editor spot for our arts and culture issue. “With the Olympics and the public art, there had been a lot of misconceptions from people against certain art projects who were writing negative letters to the paper, and the focus shifted from the public art to inciting public anger,” she said. “There were a lot of naysayers who thought that maybe there was some political, cultural or financial reasons that something shouldn’t be on display.” Faulkes pointed to the Gao

Brothers’ controversial statue, Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head, as an example of one of the city’s most harshly criticized works. “I really wanted the chance to get into the paper and put a positive, affirming spin on the arts in Richmond,” she said. “People will read whatever they want to into any art and if their voice is loud enough, they can create a stir. But most people don’t even bother to investigate an artwork, particularly the artist’s

statement to see what it even represents.” Faulkes’ artistic roots are in drawing, photography and computer graphics. She works primarily with pastels, acrylics and oils in two styles: highly realistic acrylic inks using a technique of stippling and pointillism, and abstractions in pastels, acrylic paint and oil paint. Her work has been collected and exhibited throughout North America and Japan, and she has been published in numerous magazines and books.

seurs can also taste-test some of Lai’s more recent creations. The folks at Terra Nova Rural Park will also be showing people how to thresh wheat, plant garlic and harvest field crops during Culture Days. “It’s a bit of a gem in Richmond,” Lai said of the park during a media tour. “It’s a healing space...You just end up socializing and chatting and meeting new people, and that’s the best part about this in the community.” Terra Nova Rural Park is one of dozens of visual arts, performing arts and heritage spaces in Richmond that will be open to the public for Culture Days.

crews manipulate a computerized surround sound system to create special noise effects— like a helicopter flying from left to right across the stage. “Nowadays the sound designers are becoming more and more complex in the type of designs that they’re doing...We need to have the technology and the ability to keep up with them,” said Gateway’s head carpenter Bill Davey. “It’s a great room and it’s a lot of fun and once you learn what all those buttons and switches are it’s like the cockpit of an airplane,” he added. Costume designer Hannah Matiachuk will be onsite to talk about how costumes are built. And a masks workshop will give wannabe actors a chance to try out some character work. Outside the theatre, artist Tyler Hodgins will officially unveil his new public artwork—The Gateway—which has been erected on the plaza.

Museum artifacts on display From Page 4

History buffs may be interested to take a tour of the Richmond Museum’s artifact storage space. “We have over 15,000 artifacts in our collection and they range from costumes, garments and textiles to household items, agricultural equipment, industrial equipment,” said curator Rebecca Forrest. Wearing clean white gloves, Forrest holds up some of her more recent acquisitions—a dress from the 1950s, a woman’s wool coat from the Second World War and a pair of sparkly ladies’ shoe buckles from the Victorian era.

The Richmond Museum is unique because it “contemporary collects,” Forrest said. “We think that objects are just as important that are being developed in the 1990s, 1980s, all the way up to 2010,” she explained, holding up a brick-like cellphone from the early 90s. The museum is currently developing a 2010 Olympics collection, complete with brochures, pins, uniforms, O Zone memorabilia and gifts to mayor and council. In the back of the storage space is where the museum keeps large agricultural equipment,

vehicles and a plethora of household appliances, electronics, hand tools and always-popular vintage toys. Most of the 15,000 artifacts were donated. “We really look for items that represent the whole population instead of just typically what you might see at a pioneer-type museum,” said Forrest. People must register for tours of the storage space, at which point they will receive directions to its “secret” location. For more information about Culture Days in Richmond, visit culturedays.ca.

Forward thinker produces backwards art Jeanette Jarville works in a reverse glass painting technique in her B&B-based studio by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter

W

hen Jeanette Jarville starts a new painting, she first signs her name backwards in the corner, and then promptly paints over it. It’s not an exercise in modesty or mystery, but the logical first step for an artist who practises reverse oil painting on glass—a rare style the Richmond painter picked up 16 years ago. Jarville places a sheet of glass on her easel and paints the surface in front of her, knowing the finished work will be viewed from the other side. “All the highlights and things I want in the image I have to paint first, and then I layer back. So it’s a complete switchover from painting the other way,” she said. Once the work is mounted on cardboard and framed, it produces an effect that oil on canvas cannot.

“It makes the colours and the image much more intense, like it’s luminescent, like it glows,” she said. Reverse glass painting is a technique that demands confident brushstrokes. “The most challenging thing is I can’t make changes,” Jarville said. Once her paintbrush touches the glass, there’s no turning back. Many of her pieces are on display in the threeroom bed and breakfast she runs on Steveston Highway. Jarville’s work features images of abstract figures—products of her imagination. But she also paints landscapes, still lifes and florals. “I’ve never been able to pinpoint my work,” she said. “I really never come across anything that looks quite like it. I just call it stylized; it’s very bold and colourful.” The subject matter and colour tone is reminiscent of her favourite Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani. Some have compared her split-in-half faces to Pablo Picasso’s work, but

Jarville is hesitant to make that comparison. Always known as the class artist in grade school, Jarville has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She started private oil painting lessons at age 11 and eventually went on to earn a bachelor of fine arts degree from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She did her third year of art school in Berlin, where she experimented with public art. “All I did was temporary installations throughout the city, and photograph them, and then just leave them,” she said. Locally Jarville has four large landscape paintings on a column at the Lansdowne Canada Line station. She also painted two eagle statues for the BC Lions Society, one of which is permanently located outside the Easter Seal House in Vancouver. “I really enjoy watching the reactions people get and listening to the feedback i get,” she said of her public art.

In conjunction with Culture Days, which runs Sept. 24 to 26, Jarville has invited other local artists to show their work in her gallery at the Doorknocker B&B. The salon style art show will feature pieces from Nicole Carrie, Brittani Faulkes, Tiana Kaczor, Adrienne Moore, William Watt and Loraine Wellman. “I’m hoping it’s a great success because I would love to continue doing it,” Jarville said. “There is very little space in Richmond, if any, that actually does art openings and shows on a regular basis.” Jarville had financial success showing her work at one Steveston gallery—but it closed two years ago. “There are no commercial galleries

Arts cuts run deep

Better Grades Happier Kids Grade 1 - 12

Artisans’ Galleria closes doors, non-profit school cancels programs by Todd Coyne Contributor It’s no secret that recent cuts to arts funding in B.C. have left more and more arts programs across the province clamouring for fewer and fewer dollars. But for those not directly employed in the arts business, these cuts often sound like an abstraction without any concrete repercussions on people’s lives and communities. Here in Richmond, however, the withdrawal of provincial arts funding has left real holes in the city and its cultural services— holes that can be seen from the sidewalk. Perhaps the most high-profile of these recent losses was the Sept. 12 closure of Steveston’s non-profit Artisans’ Galleria, a 34-year-old linchpin in the Richmond visual arts scene. The 70-member gallery was forced to close when it found itself unable to afford the rent on its Moncton Street storefront after the B.C. government suddenly ceased providing grants from provincial gaming revenues for arts initiatives in September 2009. Margaret Stephens, treasurer and primary administrator for the Community Arts Council of Richmond, which operated the Artisans’ Galleria, said the volunteer organization scrambled around to find other government and private grant money but was told that demand for the grants had increased five-fold since the withdrawal of the province’s gaming money. Stephens said that the $7 million that the B.C. government last week announced would be put back into funding the arts through the B.C. Arts Council amounts to too little too late, offering arts organizations a fraction of the previous funding after many arts organizations had already made drastic cuts

to balance their budgets for the year. Stephens said she doesn’t know what will occupy the former Artisans’ Galleria space in Steveston Village, but she’s certain that it won’t be another gallery or artist studio. The province’s cuts have not only affected the smaller momand-pop art shops, but some of Richmond’s major cultural institutions as well. The Richmond Music School and the Richmond Art Gallery are just two of the city’s larger cultural bodies whose continued programming, in one form or another, has been put in jeopardy by the loss of the provincial gaming grants. “If you look at it, it’s something silly like one-twentieth of one per cent of the entire provincial

“They weren’t saving any money by cutting. It seems more punitive than logical.” - Lynn Beavis

budget that goes to the arts,” said RAG director Lynn Beavis. “So really they weren’t saving any money by cutting us and that’s the thing that’s really confounded the whole community is that it just doesn’t make any sense. It seems more punitive than logical.” Beavis said that while the gallery dodged substantial funding losses this year by entering into a three-year funding contract with the province three years ago, next year the RAG may have to get creative in soliciting fundraising from corporations and donors if it plans to maintain its current services and exhibits. The three-decades-old Rich-

mond Music School has not been so lucky this year, however. According to school principal Patricia Rolston, the school was banking on its anticipated $50,000 gaming commission grant when she was sent a letter last September, three months after the grant was supposed to arrive, informing her that there would be no such money from the government for the year, she said. As a result, the non-profit school has had to cancel programs such as its free choirs and renowned low-cost violin outreach program, as well as cancelling concerts, letting go of piano accompanists and charging students more for their regular courses and lessons in what Rolston called the worst funding year in the school’s history. “We went down last year approximately $37,000 in the hole and we used all our savings that we had accumulated over the last 30 years to break even,” Rolston said. “If we had known this was coming, we could have done something, but instead we had to fight for our life.” For its part, the City of Richmond has expressed solidarity with its struggling arts community, with council sending a letter in November to the provincial government asking for the arts funding to be restored. “They expressed their opposition to the cuts and asked that the funding be restored back to 2008-2009 levels,” said city spokesman Ted Townsend, adding that he didn’t believe that any response to the letter was ever received from Victoria. “The letter recognized that the arts community is important for a number of reasons including the economic spinoffs that the arts community does generate into the community and that the loss of funding was fairly severe for our local groups.”

opinion Public art defines city During the past two years in Richmond, our community has been presented with a myriad of new public artworks created for the Olympics and as a part of the Biennale Artworks project. Much ink has been spilled by editorials and letter writers decrying specific installations or describing their defacement. A big issue with many writers was the monetary cost to Richmond’s residents and why pieces some found offensive were permitted by our city officials. The city should be commended—not berated—for its commitment to arts and culture. What is public art? It is art located in public places such as parks, along traffic routes, and in front of or within buildings. It is accessible. It may be historical, linking a person or event to a place. It may be functional, such as a bus stop. It may be aesthetic, something to be enjoyed for itself. Public art may be commissioned for a specific place (such as Water Sky Garden by Janet Echelman at the Richmond Olympic Oval), it may be a community art project (such as the Cambie Community Gathering Place), and it may be temporary (such as one of the Biennale pieces, Wind Waves, at Garry Point). Public art celebrates the diversity and creative energy of its city. Look at the impact of public art in Richmond. When we are members of a community, we are in contact with and develop strong feelings for our environment and other people. Public art contributes an image of place and identity for a community. The “public” part of public art means that art is presented in a public space where people from different social, economic, physical, and cultural backgrounds can interact. Public art offers quality improvement for our urban environment. More specifically, public art offers us spatial quality. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic areas make public art accessible for all to enjoy. Public art personalizes public places. It draws the eye away from the chaos of urbanization—the visual pollution of signs, parking lots and traffic. Public art creates a mental memory for a place. It helps give a place a feeling and identity for its residents, and an impression for its visitors. The City of Richmond’s website offers a guide to the city’s public art. It lists the location, title, artists, and date of production of 50 public artworks located all over Richmond. Why not set out to visit a few or all of them? Public art defines Richmond. Take pride in being a member of a community which values its social spaces and residents with its public art program. Well done Richmond! —Brittani Faulkes, Guest Editor

am often asked what inspires my artwork. Where do my ideas come from? Why choose certain colour palettes? Sometimes my biggest source of inspiration comes from what I call the Open Theatre. For several evenings in August the skies were hazed over with smoke from interior B.C. forest fires. What is pollution to some is an aesthetic moment to others. The debris in the atmosphere was affecting the sun, and the recent sunsets had been spectacular. With the smoke acting like a camera filter, I grabbed my camera and headed out to take advantage of the photo-op. Word has gotten out though. There is an out jutting bit of land at the west side of Garry Point in

Steveston which my husband and I have nicknamed “The World is My Oyster Point.” When you stand there it feels like you are at the edge of the world. I headed out there to begin my first series of sky shots. I had the world to myself. The evening after that the parking lot was twice as full and spectators lined the path, “oo-ing” and “ah-ing” at nature’s show. On the third evening the parking lot was jammed and the hillock by the point was lined with spectators. Atmospheric science lessons and play-by-play commentaries were passed back and forth. Solo gazers, friends, lovers, families, various cultures and means of pedestrian mobility stood by and waited. Something about a spectacle of nature brings out the best in people. There was no elbowing for the best vantage point. There was a lot of good natured chatter. Nobody said anything about the cameras using flash photography when the subject was the sun. As the sun set and the dazzling colours of our Open Theatre danced across the skies and waters, people clapped and cheered. The final dous-

The final dousing of the light brought roars of approval and more applause. We all felt energized, and strangers walked back to the parking lot together, talking about generalities and feeling the need to share our luck. ing of the light brought roars of approval and more applause. We all felt energized, and strangers walked back to the parking lot together, talking about generalities and feeling the need to share our luck. No amount of money could pay to reproduce such an incredible event. I feel honoured to have participated in this Open Theatre, and now I am energized to try to translate my impressions onto canvas, in large abstract interpretations of the colour show. Best seat in the house. Brittani Faulkes is a Steveston artist and The Richmond Review’s guest editor for this edition.

More cash for all-day K Editor: Re: “Kindergarten kids ‘ready’ for full day,” Sept. 2. School board chair Linda McPhail did a good job of making everything sound good and ready to go. I especially liked: “We’ve spent about $50,000 on equipment so that all of our full-day kindergartens have the same start.” Wow. That’s $1,666 per classroom. $1,666 to buy size appropriate tables/desks, chairs and playground equipment, hardcover books, learning/teaching aids, carpets, pencils, paper, scissors, etc. Staff tasked with equipping these schools must be able to recreate the miracle of the loaves and fishes if she thinks that is enough to even remotely cover these costs. Then there are the costs to retrain teachers that are being tasked with teaching kindergarten when they have never handled this age group before. The equipping of schools and teachers is so obviously underfunded. Leslie Kajdan Richmond

Scrapping gun registry doesn’t make sense

Onni tower plan doesn’t make sense either

Editor: In the 1990s when I was mayor of Richmond I worked hard to encourage the federal government to bring in the long gun firearms registry. I remember myself and Philip Owen, who was the mayor of Vancouver at the time, holding a press conference and addressing open line radio programs in support of the project. We thought it was important that our police forces knew when attending a call at a residence what firearms were kept at the home. This is especially true when domestic violence is involved as evidence indicates that there is a greater frequency of long guns being used in such circumstances. The Conservative government of Stephen Harper will be supporting legislation in the Parliament of Canada next week to bring about the end of the registry. It does not make any sense. A lot of money was spent initially to set up the registry and it has been operating for years. Adults can still own long guns if they register them with the police and use them for hunting and target practice. The registry is a tool to help protect our citizens and police. Where does our Conservative Member of Parliament Alice Wong stand on the legislation? The vote is next week. Alice please explain to Richmond residents how you intend to vote on the bill to scrap the registry. Greg Halsey-Brandt City of Richmond Councillor

Editor: Re: “Well planned cities thrive on high-rises,” Letters, Sept. 11. I agree that high-rises are in many ways a practical solution to urban sprawl but the example of a rejected proposal from 1976 probably made sense at the time, as there may not have been the demand to justify it. Now I don’t claim to be a developer or a city planner but Steveston is not a place to start building 10and 12-storey high-rises no matter how great the demand is or how much money Onni is waving around. Think about it from a practical point of view. Steveston is a corner of an island; water to the south and west and only a two-lane road heading east (Moncton) and a two-lane road heading north (No. 1 Road). Yes No. 1 Road has four lanes but with all of the row-housing along that stretch, parking has basically made it two lanes. This is an area of town that simply does not have the infrastructure to facilitate a large-scale development like the Onni project. The businesses in Steveston are primarily tourist-based and don’t have the shopping choices necessary for the average city dweller thus requiring people to have to get into their cars. If the Onni plan goes ahead, Steveston will either have some serious traffic problems or it will have to develop more shopping centres without damaging the character of the village. Take your pick. Public transit is one option but when you look at the wealthy, upscale clientele that Onni is trying to attract, do you think the average resident will settle for parking their BMW in the garage and taking the bus? Neither do I. Ken Moffatt Richmond

We could all use a little berry education

Life Lessons Andrea Phillpotts

R

ecently I was hiking with my daughters on Hollyburn Mountain. It was a breathtaking day, sun breaking through the trees dappling the trail ahead of us. Summer was at its end and nature was in its full bounty. I delighted at the sight of bushes of blueberries on the side of the trails and stopped to pick some. “Stop!” my daughters yelled. “They’re prob-

ably poisonous!” Even after I assured them that they were perfectly safe and pointed out the other edibles in the forest, they were skeptical. They would not taste even one berry from the bush. Nature was dangerous for them. Berries were fatal. Growing up on the North Shore, I frequently plundered the forests for huckleberries, salmonberries, and the like. I could point out a licorice fern with its tasty root and regularly came home from school with a blackberry stained face. I remember my grandfather praising the taste of a fresh bunch of dandelion leaves and my grandmother picking leaves for tea. My Latvian grandma would have not only recognized berries

but herbs as well: what helped you with skin rashes, what eased an upset stomach. I envied her vast knowledge of mushrooms, a national pastime for many Europeans. For me it is a lost gift. I never tried picking mushrooms, too “dangerous.” And now here’s my own children repeating the same concerns for a handful of blueberries. Is my generation the last one that feels at home in the woods? Will my children’s children be too afraid to pick even the wild blackberries in Richmond? That’s why I take heart when I hear about locals like chef Ian Lai teaching people about the local edibles growing in the Terra Nova Rural Park and environmentalist Michael Wolfe pointing out wild cranberries in

SVT End of Summer Sale Featuring 2010 FORD MUSTANG SHELBY GT 500

the Garden City lands. This knowledge is precious and something that very well could be lost to our young people. And my own children? I’ve managed to get them to try the huckleberries near my parents’ house. They ate them gingerly but only after I’d ingested my own and failed to drop dead. We’ve been enjoying the wild blackberries near our house, the ones that haven’t

been sprayed with pesticides. When you think of it, as humans, our attitude to nature has to change if we’re going to make this planet livable for the long run. Go ahead. Eat those blackberries.

Deep commitment, big rewards The draws of Irish dance are aplenty, including the $2,000 dresses by Don Fennell Staff Reporter

A

group of moms sit patiently as only feet away their daughters tirelessly practise their steps.

Tap. tap. tap. “Arms tight,â€? instructor Courtney Rose encourages one of the youngsters. “Up. up.â€? The girls are members of the internationallyrecognized Nora Pickett Irish Dance Academy which offers classes to both females and males aged four to adult in Richmond and North Vancouver. One of its most famous alumni is supermodel Coco Rocha, who began dance lessons when she was eight years old and was torn to give it up for modelling. She still maintains regular contact with the club. The dancers are drawn to Irish dance for a variety of reasons and are often introduced by siblings or peers. The commitment is intense but the rewards plentiful. The students become proďŹ cient if not excel in dance, while also enjoying personal growth such as self-conďŹ dence and teamwork. For the small group of girls in the under-13 championship class, it’s 90 minutes into a twohour Monday practice at the Grand Ballroom in South Richmond—one of at least three such classes this week. Even though the day began with the ďŹ rst full classes of a new school year, the girls are still remarkably energetic.

Draw of the dance Earlier this year, Shannon Game, 11, competed at the 2010 world championships in Glasgow, Scotland. It was a fulďŹ lling experience she hopes to qualify for again. Game, who enjoys listening to all types of music (her iPod includes some Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert and a lot of dance) started taking Irish dance lessons when she was four years old. She would love one day to perform on the big stage as part of Riverdance or Lord of the Dance—productions that launched a world-wide interest in Celtic music in the 1990s. Her immediate goal, though, is to earn the opportunity to perform a third dance at the North American championships. Only half of the competitors gets the chance by placing in the top 50 per cent after two dances. “It makes you a little nervous to hear (the judges’) opinions,â€? Game says. “But people have different opinions so sometimes you place well from one judge and not as well from another.

Irish Dancers (from left) Caitlin Bradley-Tse, Jadyn McInnis-Thorpe, Macaela Bradley-Tse, Jessie Hebert and Shannon Game practise in Richmond Saturday.

The nicest thing any judge has said to me is that I’m a naturally-talented dancer.â€? Sisters Caitlin and Macaela Bradley-Tse are equally excited to be taking Irish dance lessons. They can’t wait to get to class knowing there’s a chance to learn a new step while hanging out with friends. “My favourite part of dancing is that you get to learn stuff—new steps and sometimes routines for shows,â€? Caitlin, 8, says. “And it’s fun being with my sister.â€? Unusually resolved for someone so young, Caitlin’s goal at the upcoming Western Canadian championships is to ďŹ nish ďŹ rst. She’d love to be able to go to the worlds like Macaela, who has qualiďŹ ed for the 2011 championships in Dublin, but the minimum age to be eligible is nine. Micaela, 10, started Irish dancing when she was ďŹ ve years old. “I used to go to a pre-school in Steveston and that’s where (the Nora Pickett Irish Dance Academy) used to rent space. Every day after school I’d watch the dancers. One day my mom said, ‘Micaela, do you want to start dancing? And I said yes.’â€? “Practicing can be really hard, like before a big competition because you have to work extra hard to place really well.â€? Macaela’s mom, Christine, remembers her daughter’s near-obsession with the dancers. “We would have to pass the doors to the dance studio on our way in or out of the pre-school, and she would lay on the oor to get a look at their feet. I had to endure a year-and-a-half of her begging to take Irish dancing, but she

wasn’t old enough. You had to be four at least, and she was only three. I listened to that another six months, from September to St. Patrick’s Day before we ďŹ nally went to one class. I asked if I should bring her back in six months and Nora said, ‘Are you kidding?’ Macaela was keen from the get-go.â€?

Birth of the academy Compared to most of today’s students who begin taking dance lessons at four or ďŹ ve years old, Academy founder Nora Pickett was a late starter. She was seven when she took up Irish dance, enrolled by her mom whose best friend was also signing up her daughter. Though a naturally-talented dancer, Pickett lacked motivation. One day her teacher, Violet Moore, told her bluntly: “If you don’t start working I’m going to give up on you.â€? “She had tried every other angle and that’s the one that worked,â€? Pickett says. Competitive, with an adventurous spirit, Pickett developed her passion for Irish dance. She began competing at open championships (the highest competitive level) at 12 and qualiďŹ ed for 10 world championships, earning numerous honours. She also spent a year studying in London, England at the prestigious Maguire-O’Shea Academy of Irish Dance and competed against the likes of Colin Dunne, Jean Butler and countless other Riverdance and Lord of the Dance cast members. Pickett retired from competing in 1993, hoping someone would ask her to teach. That request

“It’s stressful in competition,â€? Game’s mom, Connie, says. “Everybody wants the best for their daughter so as parents you’re always trying to ďŹ nd ways to make it a positive experience. But you also want to teach them about friendship and supporting your friends. Judging is very subjective so when you don’t win it’s nice to have your parents’ support and also your friend’s.â€? Irish dance may be a fun pastime, but it can come with a fairly hefty price tag. For example, the colourful competition dresses are hand made and one-of-a-kind and average $2,000 apiece. Depending on the dance, there are also soft and hard-soled shoes which need to be specially ordered at a cost of $100 a pair. But this is also where the parents unite. They’re all very involved in fundraising to help ensure no dancer is unable to pursue their dream. One of the more popular fundraisers involves the Eire Born dancers, one of ďŹ ve show troupes from the Nora Pickett Dance Academy. They began performing during the Tall Ships Festival in 2002 and have been performing shows regularly on the Steveston docks every summer since. The dancers also perform at various events throughout the year. Ultimately, Pickett says she would like to host a world championship. But she notes there has only been one ever held outside of Ireland. “I’d like to apply for the North American competition and host my own local competition though. Those are deďŹ nitely goals.â€?

came from Linda Shirley of the Arts Connection. “At the time my mom lived in Steveston and I thought it was a good combination,� she says. “Interest in Irish dance was becoming pretty big because of the success of Lord of the Dance and Linda had a wait list quite long (for dance lessons).� Pickett taught for seven years until at the turn of the millennium, in 2000, she felt like she needed to try to realize the dream of having her own Irish dance school. It was a move Shirley blessed. “There was a period for a few years where there weren’t a lot of beginners or mid-level dancers, but we had a huge number of championship dancers,� Pickett says. Appreciating the uniqueness of personalities and how kids are motivated, Pickett has been able to successfully build her dance academy. “It’s a tight community,� she says. As a teaching philosophy I have pretty big focus on family and friendships.�

“Yeah right, sure,” Northey thought. But little by little he began to recognize the actress’s voice. Alley had seen his animatronic puppet displays at Granville Island’s Kids Only Market and wanted to buy them. It was a deal. Northey sold her two of the coin-operated machines that had been enjoyed by thousands of children for years. “That kind of inspired me to start thinking more about collectors,” Northey said. He had learned how to polish metal from a dentist/silversmith who had gifted him a set of old dentist drills. “All I wanted to do at that point was make metal gleam,” he said. “It’s like wood when you polish it; it just really comes alive.” Northey’s first metal robot was published in a San Francisco-based art magazine, which caught the attention of the CEO of Nike. He wanted to buy the piece and commission more.

After Northey set up a website in the late ‘90s, his robot art business exploded and buyers sprang up around the world. His work attracts art lovers, but mostly he says: “It seems to be people that are really into comic book ephemera.” Each robot has a personality that dictates what it looks like. “It usually starts with a story or an idea. I’ll have a character in mind that I want to

create,” Northey said. “Little Bob” is a 12-inch tall copper, brass and aluminum gunslinging cowboy with a childlike expression. He is part of a nine-piece robot diorama, which Northey has also turned into an illustration. That drawing will be the final panel in a graphic novel his is creating with his wife Julie, a painter and children’s book author. Both the diorama and graphic novel will both be unveiled at a comicon in San Diego next summer. A self-professed comic fiend, Northey loves manga, anime, Herge’s Tin Tin and of course, Superman. He remembers the Saturday mornings of his childhood when his mother would kick him out of the house to clean. The young

Northey would go over to a friend’s house and spend 10 hours pouring over comic books. He’s actually taken a break from robots for the past year to focus on his graphic novel. “Comics really are where I’m coming from,” he said. Inspiration also comes in the form of family. Northey’s son Ono was an endless source of imagination and energy. “Kids are such a great source of inspiration because the way see the world is unique and having Ono really sort of allowed me to be a kid again and see life through his eyes,” Northey said. “We used to have some great brainstorming sessions when he was a kid and living at home,” Northey added. “I miss that sometimes.” Ono, now 30, shares the same passion as his father, though his forté is martial arts, not robot art. Part athlete, part artist, Ono operates Shinka Martial Arts Studio in Steveston. “The martial arts, as funny as it sounds, isn’t actually my art,” explained Ono. “The creation of martial artists is my art.”

seeds were again bundled up and shipped across another ocean. But this time, there were already a number of companies importing these ingredients from around the world. So, the dishes from East Africa

continued to be made, pretty much unaltered. While this may sound like a great thing, I sometimes wonder what would have happened if we couldn’t import cassava or coconut milk? Would we have curried

bok choi? Pakoras made from turnips and squash? Broad bean biryani? Globalization has meant that almost any ingredients can be shipped in from anywhere around the world. While it may have introduced new

spices and cuisines to Canada, it has also stagnated the evolution of our cuisine. And that’s really too bad. I think our community would embrace more styles of cooking if more local ingredi-

ents were injected into the dishes. I was really pleased to hear how well participants liked chef Ian Lai’s take on Healthy Asian Cooking during Asian Heritage month. He married local ingredients, like chard and kale, with Asian spices to make new and improved dishes. Culture is not static

and neither is food. Both continue to evolve and change, if we let them. So, while keeping traditions alive, let’s continue growing. Can’t wait to hear what kind of iconic Richmond dishes appear in the future. Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society.

I

was recently discussing my family history with a new acquaintance. Both of my parents’ families originally came from Gujarat State in India. I lived there for a year after university and it’s a very dry, droughtprone region. After a particularly severe drought in 1908, my paternal great-grandfather took advantage of an offer by the German government to immigrate to Tanzania. There, he settled in a small town called Iringa, about six hours inland from Dar es Salaam. I try to imagine how my great grandmother would have prepared for such an epic journey. I see her carefully packing a chest of spices and seeds from her home so that she could grow and make the foods she was accustomed to. I still have a solid brass mortar and pestle that would have been used to grind these spices, passed down to me from my grandmother. It would have been so heavy to lug with all the rest of the household goods but it was apparently important enough to make the journey across the Indian Ocean. In East Africa, many of the spices that were used in India grew well. In addition to the turmeric, cumin, and coriander that normally made up most Gujarati dishes, other ingredients made their way into the cuisine. Cloves, cinnamon and coriander that grew so well in Zanzibar were added. Coconut milk was plentiful and soon became an indispensable ingredient for many curries. Pigeon peas and corn flour were adopted into the now-iconic East African dish: barazi and mandazi. Deep fried cassava served with tamarind chutney became a common street food. The inter-mingling of African and Indian ingredients made for some wonderful dishes. When my family left Tanzania in the early ’70s, the spices and

The Chili Tank serves up lunch with history

The Chili Tank itself is a unique attraction, a circa 1943 military soup kitchen used by the Czechoslovakian army that Forster’s father found in Germany just last year and had shipped to his son. And Forster makes delicious chili to boot. Operating Chili Tank has become a hobby for the Vancouver resident, who first served up his chili at the University of B.C.’s Apple Festival last fall. His day job involves working as a chef for Edible Planet, a catering company that services the film industry. “The company I work for, they are very environmentally friendly. We try to do our part for the environment, and I feel the same,” says Forster. Chili Tank was chosen as one of the food vendors at the City of Richmond’s O Zone celebration site during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, stand-

ing out in a competitive application process because of Forster’s ecominded philosophy. This summer he’s served up chili at the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market (next one Sept. 25) and the Ladner Village Market. Forster shares his corn chowder recipe with Black Press.

Local corn chowder Ingredients 2 Tbsp. butter 7 slices of applewood smoked bacon 1 onion 1 carrot 1 celery stick 2 leeks

4 cups fresh corn 2 potatoes 2 cups milk 2 cups cream 2 cups chicken stock 1 teaspoon cumin 2 bay leaves parsley thyme salt and pepper (All the veggies can be bought locally)

Directions Brown the butter and bacon. Add diced onion, carrot and celery. Sweat until veggies are translucent. Add cumin.

Add liquids and bay leaves, and diced potatoes. Bring to a boil ,than add corn and simmer for 30 minutes. Season to taste. Gar-

nish with parsley and thyme. For a vegetarian version omit the bacon and substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock. — Black Press

skinny pant, then you’ll be happy to whip out your classic straight leg pant. Another classic piece on the runway was the wool coat in long, short, or double breasted versions. A fresh way to update these pieces for fall 2010 is how you put them into an outfit. One approach is to wear head-to-toe of one colour such as pairing a classic camel blazer with a caramel top and tan chinos. A different idea is to wear all neutrals with a kick of colour or a bold accessory, described below. Ready-toWear designer Chloé showed great examples of New Classic outfits in its fall 2010 collection.

stain-hiding colours such as olive green. Olive is a fresh colour for bottoms and matches with (almost!) everything as if it were black, grey, or tan, and they don’t have to have cargo pockets. See celebrities Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow for inspiration on how they style their olive pants. At the very least, an anorak jacket is perfect for rainy Richmond weather! Bold Accessories: Add a bold finishing touch to your office ensemble with leopard, lace, or red leather, but stay away from “those” kind of stores. Accessories are a less expensive and easier way to

salmon by way of different traditions which I don’t really know a whole lot about. What I do know however is that for the last several weeks I haven’t take my eyes off the river. About a week ago when my sister was visiting we launched a canoe after dinner to do a small paddle with the salmon on the other side of Shady Island. The September light faded quickly as darkness fell but we did see some before we returned to shore—two sisters in their canoe, with two dogs amongst a lot of sports fishermen in their tin boats—sharing fish stories. It was on that day that we got the idea we should follow the salmon home to their spawning grounds. Which translated into a spontaneous road trip to drive up the Fraser Canyon, the Thompson River, and head east to get to the Adams River, camping along the way and hoping to see as much

as possible with a few detours thrown in. I met up with my sister and her husband in their motor home near Spences Bridge. I was a day behind them as I drove up the canyon stopping in Yale and near Spuzzum to watch the salmon make their way north, past the nets of aboriginals who were fishing in the river’s deep pools. By this time I had started to read more about the Adams River sockeye run as I had forgotten a lot which I had probably learnt way back in high school. On average it takes the fish 18 days to complete their arduous journey from the sea and to survive many kinds of obstacles. On the rocks below the first campsite people had constructed stone sculptures similar to inukshuk shapes that I wanted to think were a way to honour the returning salmon. We could see fish jumping as we watched a black bear catch a salmon on the riverbank across

from us. The Thompson is an impressive corridor steeped in history with freight trains on both sides of the river that run constantly day and night. The next day we continued to follow the route of the salmon. We stopped at farm stands along the way to buy melons, eggplants, peppers and apples. And to talk to more fishermen on lone

beaches. Hours later, past Chase, we turned off the highway near the Adams River that attracts visitors worldwide. We found out we were early and the main return wouldn’t peak until early, mid-October but they were there! The early ones that is. One place to view them was in Scotch Creek where there is a bridge and trails on either side. The small river was jammed with pairs of the reddest fish with dark green heads. An old timer told us there were 400,000 sitting in North Shuswap Lake off the mouth of the Adams waiting to make a move. What we witnessed the next morning in the rain was quite powerful. I had seen films of these brilliant red fish spawning before in shallow streams—but to actually be there was something else. I wasn’t prepared to see so many dead ones! Piles of them stuck on top of rocks and under tree limbs. Later at the Roderick Haig-Brown Park I read more about the benefits of all the nutrients from the dead fish for the Shuswap lake system. My three-day jaunt to follow the sockeye was worth it. I stood on my porch back home and saw there were still lots of sockeye here at the mouth of the Fraser. I caught myself saying, “You still have a long way to go—and now I know where you’re going.” Mary Gazetas is a director of the Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project, instructor, artist and writer.

Just a Lil’Bit Reggae artist Elaine Shepherd wants to use music to make a difference by Don Fennell Staff Reporter

E

Elaine Lil’Bit Shepherd is stopping traffic with her singing and songwriting. But it’s the reggae artist’s voice that comes first.

laine Shepherd comes by her nickname, Lil’Bit, honestly.

She doesn’t mind though, because she’s also known as the “little girl with the big voice.” A 2005 graduate of Richmond High, Shepherd, 23, spends most of her time these days in Toronto. It’s the undisputed hub of the reggae scene in Canada and as such the place to be seen and heard. Though the music scene, like any other profession has its share of pettiness and jealousy, Shepherd has largely been warmly embraced by other reggae artists who support her efforts to launch a successful recording career. John Forbes, who along with Alex King founded Chalawa, a popular Canadian rock-reggae group in the mid-1970s, produced Shepherd’s recently-completed debut album Lady in The Streets. The lifeinspired album is due to be released before the end of 2010 and is rooted

in reggae with an infusion of soul, jazz and rhythm and blues. The title track is already receiving rave reviews and helped Shepherd earn the 2010 Reggae Music Achievement Award for promising new artist. Another track, “Jeapordize” is a duet with 2009 Juno winner Humble, while “Judge Not” is a song she composed for the World Consciousness Unification Project.

“First and foremost, I’m a singer no matter what. I’ll sing the phone book.” - Elaine Shepherd A veteran Jamaican radio personality is quoted on her MySpace page as saying: “There were times when I thought that sweet lovers’ rock like this was a thing of the past. After listening to this talented artist, I realized that there is still hope for music of such quality.” Born in Bahrain, singing is all Shepherd has ever wanted to do. She began performing as a small child and

continued to develop her musical talents after immigrating to Richmond with her family in 1997. In high school she learned to play the guitar and piano and began to extensively write songs. While studying jazz and contemporary voice in college, she began collaborating with other musicians that would eventually introduce her to hip-hop, R&B and reggae. “First and foremost, I’m a singer no matter what. I’ll sing the phone book,” says Shepherd. “But I like to consider myself a singer-songwriter who also plays the piano and guitar. I like to take all those skills and try to use to them to up my performance and grow as a performer. When I’m on stage it’s not acting necessarily, but you have to convey to the audience what you’re singing about. It goes hand in hand.” Shepherd is very close to her family, which has supported her unconditionally. That made the move to Toronto difficult but ultimately has helped grow her independence and emergence as a performing artist.

lieve in herself more. “I used to say, ‘If I make it...’ and Carrie would say, ‘No, when you make it,’” says Shepherd. “To have somebody believe in you that much is amazing. It’s taught me to keep my head up.” But Shepherd, whose first recognized success was as winner of the inaugural RichCity Idol contest (featuring Richmond secondary school students), also remains firmly grounded. She insists one thing she’ll never do is sell out. “If I’m not comfortable with it, it won’t happen,” she says. “I want to take my music as far as I can, but also to use my talent to do bigger things for the world. There are a lot of people who need help, a lot of poverty, and being a big animal lover I know there are animals that need rescuing. “I’d like to use music to get (that message out). Music is universal and by that alone you’re showing your support. But I also want to directly help the world to grow. For me it’s not about getting rich and famous and spending money on crap. There are a lot of things I want to do and get involved with and I’m hoping music will take me to a place where I have the financial ability to be able to do more.” As different as it may seem, in terms of financial or chart success, every artist has a similar objective—to have their music deliver a message, says Shepherd, whose musical influences range from the Eagles to Lady Gaga and Kenny Chesney to Bob Marley. Every artist she meets inspires her

in a some way. Shepherd admits being young has meant having to set herself apart as an artist, while earning the respect of her peers. “There are a lot of people who try to break you down in different ways,” she says. “You have to keep the flow, the only thing to stop you is yourself.” Shepherd, who has never been afraid to receive constructive criticism or been discouraged by rejection, credits her high school music teacher Tony Sheppard (who still teaches at Richmond High) with playing an instrumental role in her development as a musician and performer. “He really believed in my talent and gave me the spotlight a lot of times,” she says. “I was heavily involved in five music courses; whatever was available I took. As much as I liked school, none of my stud-

ies interested me more. Music gave me balance. I owe a lot to Tony for giving me that push.” Sheppard is proud of his former student. “She’s a shining star of this program,” he says. “She’s always had a strong voice, a distinctive tone quality that you could recognize instantly. And she had a natural gift for improvisation and an enthusiasm for singing. Plus, she was just a wonderful person who would help the younger kids.” Elaine Shepherd is anxious to share her latest sound with a hometown audience Sept. 25 at the Shark Club Bar & Grill in Vancouver (180 West Georgia St.). She’s a guest performer along with Mandy Woods and The Mountain Band of Steele. The show begins at 9 p.m. and tickets are available at ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.ca) or by phone at 604-280-4444.

First off, you are not alone. What you are experiencing is called presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs when the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible and makes focusing difficult. Additional help is required, through the use of glasses (or special contact lenses), to provide the focusing power needed to make reading easier. Surprisingly, if you have myopia (aka nearsightedness), the natural shape of your eye may provide this extra focusing power you need. This is why removing contacts (or glasses) seems to help. Thankfully many recent technological advances provide you with more options than ever before. The standard solution to your contact lens dilemma is simply to wear reading glasses over top of you contact lenses. However, many office employees do not embrace this option because their depth of focus is often too narrow and they dislike taking their glasses on and off to see. A much better solution is the IT lens, a special progressive lens designed for the computer or office worker. It has a much larger depth of field and enables looking at a computer without tilting your head up. People love this lens because their entire workstation is clear and there is no need to look over glasses to talk to co-workers. If there are visual demands that require sharp distance vision, you still can wear progressive lenses over top of your contact lenses. We offer progressive lenses designed with no prescription at the top with gradually increasing power as you look down. Unlike progressive lenses of the past, we are much better able to customize the lenses to give you wider computer and reading zones, while continuing to allow for popular and stylish narrow frames. If you are wearing contact lenses to free yourself of the need to wear frames, don’t fret, multifocal contact lenses may be just for you! There are several new brands of multifocal contact lenses that are healthier, more comfortable and provide better vision than ever before.

Having some sensitivity in your teeth is the most common complaint I hear from people. There are a number of things that cause this and contribute to the problem. The first is changes in the position of the gums around the teeth. When we hit our twenties, the teeth have normally finished erupting but the gums can continue to change by shrinking slightly. Normally the enamel of our teeth extends to just below the gums (ideally). Where the enamel stops the surface of the roots starts. If the gums shrink a tiny bit, exposing a little of the root surface, sensitivity can occur. This is because our root surfaces, unlike the hard enamel shell, can stimulate the nerve inside the tooth. That nerve is a stupid on e and only knows how to say ouch. It does not differentiate hot or cold or touch etc. It’s simply a pain receptor. Anything that stimulates that root surface such as temperature changes (especially cold), sweet things, acidic liquids like slurpies or carbonated beverages, will make you notice. If you are a clencher or bruxer (night time tooth gnasher) you will accelerate the change in gum recession which can make this worse. If you are more stressed, your entire nervous system can become more hypersensitive, including your teeth. Fortunately the toothpaste people have come up with solutions which help cover over these sensitive areas and reduce sensitivity. However, they must be used continuously. There are certain dental materials which we can essentially paint on the exposed root surfaces like a varnish to seal up these areas more reliably as well. However, overzealous scrubbing with a toothbrush can undo all this desensitizing unless you use your toothbrush correctly. If you are experiencing this common annoyance be sure you’re not making it worse with improper toothbrushing techniques and ask about desensitizing options.

Reducing taxes by restructuring debt Carrying debt is a way of life for most Canadians, whether it is a mortgage to buy a house, a car loan or a loan to invest in a business. But people often overlook a simple strategy to restructure their debt to create significant tax deductions. If you have non tax-deductible debt such as interest payments on your home mortgage or line of credit you can use the investment loan strategy to make your interest payments tax-deductible by following these steps: Step 1: Identify your current non-registered assets and any non-deductible interest payments on your debt(s). Ideally, the non-registered assets should not be required for income or spending for 10 years or more to reduce the risks associated with borrowing to invest as outlined in Step 3. Charlie Chan Step 2: Sell the appropriate amount of your non-registered investments to pay CFP, EPC off the non-deductible debt(s). If you are paying off a mortgage, you need to take into account any related fees or penalties. You must also Investment consider the tax implications of selling a non-registered account so as Advisor to minimize any capital gains that may have accrued. Step 3: Re-borrow the equivalent amount of the assets that were sold to pay off the debt, effectively replenishing the non-registered investments.

Q: What is the state of wireless security in Richmond these days? A:

Good and bad. Occasionally I’ll do a drive through Richmond with a Wi-Fi antenna sticking out of my sunroof doing what is called “war driving.” I can pick out and analyse all the Wi-Fi signals I see, plot them on a GPS map or export the raw data to a spreadsheet. Sometimes when waiting for the Canada Line I’ll do the same with a Wi-Fi utility on my IPhone. And kudos to Richmond residents! I’m finding that most homes are using safe methods of encryption and use Wi-Fi broadcast names that are not linked to the family name. The businesses around town, however, are often sadly lacking and even some camera security systems are wide open to prying eyes. Not a good sign. Safe is WPA2 encryption, not at all safe is no encryption or WEP encryption. And it’s generally not a good idea to identify your store or business name in the Wi-Fi broadcast name unless you are running a publicly accessible Wi-Fi hot spot. And an FYI for those of you using older firewalls regardless of the encryption issues. Firewall/router models older than a couple of years are often too slow for modern cable modem speeds. Switching in a more modern unit can double or triple your download, video and gaming speeds. Ditto for older wireless units attempting to handle HD video traffic - way too slow. If you’re a business with wireless, and you need help locking your systems down, please give us a call.

Q:

Q: Why do I need to be adjusted on a regular basis? A:

I’ve been training the last 3 months for a half marathon coming up in Toronto, and I’ve been getting this sharp achy pain in the inside of my lower left leg. A friend suggested I buy new runners and run on softer ground, but I am still experiencing the same pain. I really don’t want to miss out on this run. Is there anything I can do?

A:

The inside lower leg pain you are experiencing is caused by the overuse of the Tibialis Posterior muscle. This muscle supports the inside arch of the foot, and turns the sole of the foot inwards. An injury to this muscle is caused by the forceful contact of the heel on the ground. When the heel strikes the ground, the foot is bent downwards and the arch collapses which stretches the Tibialis Posterior. The powerful contraction of the overstretch can lead to soreness and eventually injury to the Tibialis Posterior muscle. Injury to the Tibialis Posterior can also be caused by a flat foot. Having flat feet causes the Tibialis Posterior, and the other muscles to become overstretched and inflamed. Orthotics prescribed by your doctor could help to decrease the pain by ensuring the arches of the foot remain intact. However, since the pain is only on your left leg, this problem could be attributed to a hip malalignment. If the hips are malaligned, this can cause one leg to become longer than the other. The body compensates for this difference by collapsing the arch on the longer leg in order to level off the leg length, thus resulting in an overstretch in the Tibialis Posterior muscle especially when running. At Evoluton Sport Therapy, our team of Athletic Therapists specialize in realigning hip levels to alleviate lower leg pain. We also do custom mould orthotics depending on your condition. Please book an appointment with a Certified Atheltic Therapist to decrease your pain and increase your mobility in the shortest time possible.

Patients frequently question the need to be adjusted on a regular basis. It seems logical to wonder, “If this body is so great, why does the spine seem to subluxate so easily?”. If you consider our twenty-first century lifestyles and things we do each day, we should wonder how our spine stays in place at all! Consider the daily time we spend standing, sitting and sleeping incorrectly. Everyone knows we are supposed to lift objects with our backs straight and our knees bent. Yet, how often do we fail to do this? Falls, accidents and injuries to the human body are absorbed to some degree by the spinal column putting excessive pressure on the nerve roots. Our bodies are so wonderfully constructed that they can adapt and compensate for most of the things we constantly do to abuse them. However, the stress and strains we continually subject ourselves to should convince each of us the importance of regular spinal examinations and adjustments.

So, my Pak Mail advice to you is ….remember: your home is not a warehouse!

A:

that true? How is silver doing?

Yes. This week gold hit a record price of USD $1,275.00 — the Canadian price being $1,305.00. This is actually a touch below the record Canadian price of $1335.00 reached earlier this month when our dollar was worth less. Silver has reached USD $20.75 or $21.40 CDN this week, breaking a 30 year high.

Constantin Stefirta

Just last year, we were selling 1 ounce of gold for $800.00 CDN and 1,000 ounce silver bars for $1,500.00 CDN. Now they are up 50% in 19 months or less.

Q: What should I know about water conservation showerheads? A:

A:

This is a VERY good question! There are several factors that you should consider when choosing to enroll your child at a dance studio: • Facility: Is the studio a clean, welcoming and creative space? Are the studio floors professionally sprung? • Instructors: Are the instructors friendly, supportive, creative, knowledgeable and experienced? • Studio Director: Does the Studio Director take an active role in your child’s dance training? Does she know who her students are and what progress they have made each year? • Office Staff: Are the office staff members friendly and helpful? • Atmosphere: What kind of feeling do you get when you walk in the door? What are the other parents at the studio like? Are the current dancers full of attitude or feelings of entitlement? • Referrals: Has a fellow parent recommended the studio to you? If you think about the values that are important to your family and apply those answers to the questions above, you may find that you make a match with a certain studio, and you may not! The best thing you can do is call the studios you are interested in or drop by to visit in person. Ask questions! You’ll find the right studio.

Imagine you are working out of your home storing products, promotional items, marketing materials or widgets in your basement or garage, or both. The business is growing. The orders are coming in. You are now packing on your kitchen table. Quite often you have to shuffle around almost the entire stock to dig out that particular item from the box in the corner of your basement underneath 6 other boxes. Then you have to rush out to buy the shipping supplies, because you ran out of packing tape or boxes of the right size. You don’t have time to make sales calls any longer. You have no privacy and can’t take time off. Your kids start to avoid you because they’re afraid you’ll ask them to help you with the packing again. You start avoiding your spouse, because you feel guilty about all the mess around the house.

Low-flow showerheads are very economical and efficient. They can reduce your water consumption without any noticeable difference when you take a shower. They are often classified as showerheads with a consumption rate of 0.5 to 2 gallons of water per minute. Older high-flow or unrestricted shower heads in systems with more typical 50psi water mains pressure can flow over 4 gallons per minute. A 5 minute shower would use 20 gallons of water with an older unrestricted shower head, although it could be more. The low-flow showerheads are ideal to have nowadays as we are trying our very best to tighten our belts but not all of them are the same. Some are better than others so give us a call to get some professional advice.

Look for an experienced clinic. Even with excellent equipment, it takes extensive training and experience on the part of the technician to deliver optimum results. A professional skin and hair assessment will give you realistic expectations. You should have a free test patch when you go in for your consultation and should wait at least 24 hours before your first treatment. Not all companies do this, but it is an important safety step. The technician can see how your skin and hair react on a small test area before launching into a full treatment. Look for staff who answer your questions knowledgeably. A comprehensive medical history must be taken to ensure that you are a good candidate. They need to be alerted of any conditions that make laser treatments unsafe. A prevalent contra-indicator is recent sun exposure. Some companies will treat tanned skin, but they risk burning the client; or to treat the area safely, they compromise on effectiveness. Web sites are a good resource. There are a number of qualified physician-directed clinics in the Lower Mainland. Be sure to find a skin care partner that you trust. It is an important decision and it is worth the effort.

I went for one laser hair removal session with a local company and I was disappointed in the results. They told me I was a good candidate, so should I try again?

Look for a true medical diode laser with optimal wavelength. This treats the widest range of hair and skin types safely and effectively. The Nd: YAG laser or IPL (intense pulse light) can take 50-100% more treatments for the same results for most skin types. Also, watch for spas and salons using non-medical equipment without sufficient power. You won’t get the best reduction and your results may be temporary.

Artist jumps into ‘man’s world’ by Todd Coyne

1983’s Flashdance, then think again. Koenig-Workman is, if nothing else, a Renaissance woman who’s proven her proficiency not only in dance and industrial art, but also writing, drawing, painting, theatre, music and photography. Most recently, however, she’s had welding on her mind—and body. “I’ve got a couple little burns so far, thankfully I haven’t had anything major. The main thing always is safety is No. 1 and in any industry like that it’s not something you just take lightly,” she said. But physical contact with the elements of her work—fire and metal—and with the elements of her Steveston environment— nature and industry—are the central and intertwined themes of her sculpture work, she said. “I want [people] to interact with the materials in a way and look on those materials and be curious about how a harder material can communicate something...not necessarily soft or gentle but can communicate some very powerful truths,” she said. One of those truths is what she

or Steveston artist Erika Koenig-Workman, jumping head-first into what she calls the “man’s world” of welding meant steeling herself against the macho attitudes of the industry’s status quo—quite literally. Melding her art, her faith and her physical form, Koenig-Workman’s current work-in-progress is a warrior-like sheet-metal breastplate that, for her, is meant to embody the intangibles of personal strength and spirit in a single piece of welded armour. Koenig-Workman, 48, credits her highly-accomplished ballet and dance background for her appreciation—and borderline obsession—with bringing together the physical satisfactions of hard labour like steelwork with the intellectual rewards of the arts. But should you be getting visions of Jennifer Beals’s welder-by-day, dancer-by-night character from

described as the obvious common ground between the mystical alchemy of joining, forming and manipulating metals and, of all things, motherhood. “Part of what mothers do is they bring things together; they’re bringing people together, they’re joining things together. And in welding, you’re joining things together. You’re assembling, you’re trying to make a good joint.” Raising three boys of her own, Koenig-Workman is not only outnumbered as the sole woman at her metalwork shop, Shamrock Welding, but at home too. She will soon have some respite, though, when she begins classes in January at the Piping Industry Apprenticeship Board, a pipe-fitting school offering women-only pipe and welding classes on Annacis Island. Ultimately, Koenig-Workman said she hopes to work as both a journeyman pipefitter and a public artist in her beloved Steveston, melding the often disparate gaps between labour for art, labour for love and labour for commerce; between artisan, mother and worker.

community End of sockeye sport fishing nears by Jeff Nagel Black Press This will be the last big weekend for sports anglers hoping to hook a sockeye salmon in the Fraser River. Recreational angling for sockeye on the lower Fraser ends Sunday Sept. 19, even though there are still millions more fish holding in Georgia Strait that are yet to begin swimming upstream. The estimates of how many sockeye are still in salt water range from six to 12 million, Fisheries and Oceans Canada area director Barry Rosenberger said Wednesday. “We expect them to start moving in at a faster pace,” he said.

Sockeye in past years sometimes make a sudden mass dash into the river after an extended wait offshore—something Rosenberger said could soon happen. The Pacific Salmon Commission on Tuesday maintained its overall run size estimate of 34.5 million sockeye returning to the Fraser. Most commercial fishing had already been halted to protect weaker stocks of coho salmon that are now migrating upriver. Rosenberger said the same logic applies to recreational fishermen. “We want them not to be catching too many coho,” he said, adding there will be no extension of the sport fishery. Trollers have continued to fish sockeye but that is expected to end soon. Seiners and gillnetters have already ended their season.

Canning tips shared at fair Darlene Tanaka remembers her mom sweating over the steaming pressure cooker or pulling racks of heated jars from the oven as she canned blackberries, blueberries, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes— whatever grew in the expansive garden behind their Richmond home. But her favourite was fish. Her father was a fisherman, and the family had access to a seemingly endless supply of salmon. Fortunately, canning techniques have evolved over the years; the fearsome pressure cookers have been replaced by simple stove-top boilers and jars with special lids to sterilize and lock out bacteria. But the flavours and freshness canning locks in are as good as ever, says Tanaka, who will be demonstrating some of her canning secrets at the Queensborough Fall Fair in New Westminster on Sept. 19. The simpler, more userfriendly methods have spurred a renewed interest in home canning, as has the increased attention people are paying to what they’re eating and where it comes from. “People are becoming more aware of the food they eat,” says Tanaka. “They want to know exactly what’s going into

their food.” A tried-and-true recipe, a little time, and a bit of organization are the keys to successful canning, says Tanaka. “People think it’s difficult because there are a number of steps involved, but it’s not if you have the right equipment and a system.” The effort, she assures, is more than worth it.

has indicated it’s unlikely government could issue rebates for HST paid if the merged 12 per cent tax is defeated in the Sept. 24, 2011 referendum. “I can understand that on a hamburger, but not on a new home,” Simpson said, adding the province could easily commit to rebate HST on new home purchases and avoid instability in the industry. Premier Gordon Campbell has pledged to repeal the HST if a simple majority vote against it, a lower bar than set out in the legislation governing initiative votes. If Victoria refuses to rebate HST paid on new homes, Simpson suggests it could instead provide some temporary relief up until the referendum by relaxing Property Transfer Tax rates. Simpson said the impact of the one-year wait for the referendum could be even more dramatic in the renovation business. “If people are thinking about adding a room or redoing their kitchen or bathroom, those decisions might be put on hold.” Legitimate contractors also fear the HST is driving more business to the cash-only underground economy.
