The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is offering haunted tours of the cannery Saturday and Sunday.

Thrills and chills this weekend Konstantin Dimopoulos photo illustration Artist Konstantin Dimopoulos coloured trees blue in Melbourne, Australia for a public art installation in 2006.

Green space could go blue New art installation eyed for Garden City Community Park by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter A Richmond park could get a case of the blues next spring with the addition of a new public artwork. The Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale is proposing to install a temporary piece by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos. Blue Trees would consist of 40 young trees coloured a brilliant ultramarine blue and arranged in a cluster at Garden City Community Park. The city would be responsible for acquiring the trees, each 10 to 12 feet tall, with their root balls in burlap sacks.

The report says it would be easier to apply the colourant to unplanted trees, as opposed to existing trees, which would require the use of a ladder. The “performanceâ€? phase of the project would take one to two weeks, scheduled for late April to coincide with Earth Day, which is celebrated worldwide April 22. Fiss’s report notes the United Nations declared 2011 the International Year of Forests to raise awareness about the beneďŹ ts of forests. The recommended site is within the Garden City Community Park, adjacent to the new Alberta Road greenway and arboretum.

Dimopoulos and volunteer assistants would then apply an “environmentally safe blue colourant� to the trunks and branches, according to a staff report by public art planner Eric Fiss. Richmond council’s parks committee endorsed the temporary exhibition Tuesday. An attachment to Fiss’s report says the ultramarine blue water-based colourant is biologically safe and has been used for more than 20 years on the turf at the Melbourne Cricket Ground without issue. The colourant uses two non-hazardous pigments, contains no vinyl acetate or acrylics, and the binder is cellulosic.

Health officials roll out flu shot campaign Aboriginals and the dangerously obese now qualify for free flu shot by Todd Coyne Contributor With another flu season fast approaching, Richmond health clinics and pharmacies are once again offering the public a preventative shot in the arm to their health. This year’s flu immunization campaign includes two new groups who qualify for a free flu shot—all aboriginal peoples and the dangerously obese. “During last year’s pandemic, morbidly obese people were found to be at higher risk of serious illness from influenza, so we want to protect them in future flu seasons,” said Dr. Patricia Daly, Vancouver Coastal Health’s chief medical health officer in a news release. “Aboriginal people living on and off reserve have a higher prevalence of the chronic conditions that can increase the risk of serious illness from the flu, which is why they are now included among the eligible groups,” she added. Other groups eligible for the free flu vaccines include seniors 65 and older, residents of nursing homes and chronic care facilities, infants between the age of six months and

23 months, pregnant women in their third trimester, and children and adults with chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, lung disease, asthma, alcoholism and HIV/AIDS. Caregivers who administer to these groups and first responders are also eligible for a free flu shot this year. Healthy children and adults not eligible for the free vaccine can purchase the shot from any of a number of local clinics, pharmacies and some physicians for about $10 to $15. Nearly a dozen locations across Richmond are already offering the flu shots, including several local Shoppers Drug Marts and Save on Foods grocery stores. According to Vancouver Coastal Health, flu season begins in midDecember and typically continues until April. Vancouver Coastal Health spokeswoman Trudi Beutel said Wednesday that demand for the vaccines has been slow this year compared to last, but noted that last winter’s H1N1 flu scare sent people to the clinics in droves. “In Richmond, we’ve had 990 clients immunized so far and the majority are over 65, so that’s the group we’re seeing the most of right now,” she

said. “We’re getting lots of calls into the clinics about the flu shot, about dates available and that sort of thing, but so far attendance at the clinics

seems to be lower at this point in the campaign.” VCH immunization clinics across the province will remain open through

November. For times and locations of the nearest flu-shot clinic, residents are asked to check immunizebc.ca or call HealthLinkBC by dialling 811.

City ready for fowl fight as snow geese arrive City teams with YVR in an effort to discourage migratory birds from feeding in parks, school fields by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter Tens of thousands of snow geese have returned to the West Dyke on their annual migration journey, and this year, the city is ready for them. Staff announced Tuesday they have teamed with the Vancouver International Airport in their fight against waterfowl, four months after council approved a $100,000 battle plan allowing staff to use air pistols, lasers and military-grade lights to scare the birds away from parks and schoolyards. Staff reviewed YVR’s wildlife management plan and will work with the airport to manage both snow geese and widgeon populations this year. Where YVR is implementing measures, they will contact the city. “This allows the city to be prepared and in place so that when the waterfowl arrive, they can be immediately relocated,” said Dee BowleyCowan, acting manager of parks programs, in a report. Federal regulations require YVR to monitor activity within an eight-kilometre radius of airport grounds. When it comes to wildlife, the airport consults a professional biologist and hires hazing technicians who use sirens, pyrotechnics, dogs and lights to scare off animals. Only when public safety is at risk do airport officials shoot wildlife—a method authorized by Environment Canada through a “scare or kill” permit. Bowley-Cowan told council 40,000 to 50,000

Branko Popazivanov photo Snow geese have begun to show up in Richmond, including on the Sturgeon Banks.

snow geese have so far arrived—about half the expected flock. Those numbers are similar to last year, despite a five-per-cent decrease in the young. In addition to bright lights, loud sounds and

dogs, the city has offered farmers in southwest Richmond cash to grow winter cover crops that attract feeding geese and keep them away from unwanted sites. The city has secured 12 hectares in Richmond

so far, in addition to more winter cover crops established in Delta. “Keeping them off the sport fields and community places in Richmond is ideally why,” said Bowley-Cowan. She said scare tactics are effective at training birds. “Eventually if you haze them enough from a certain space they will not go back,” she said. “You need to keep re-educating them; you need to keep reminding them that this isn’t a space that they can stay at.” Dave Semple, general manager of parks and recreation, said recent southeasterly winds have forced many birds to land, explaining why Mayor Malcolm Brodie noticed a huge flock of the geese in the park behind his house on Monday. “Our goal is to move the snow geese south,” Semple said. “Once they go up, you want to keep them going.” Staff are not recommending the city reintroduce hunting along the West Dyke. After YVR consultations, it was felt hunting in the foreshore would move the birds inland more quickly. Each fall, approximately 100,000 of the geese fly 4,000 kilometres to the Fraser River delta to escape their frigid winter home in Wrangel Island, Russia. By year’s end, the birds head farther south to the Skagit delta before returning here in the spring on their way home. In Richmond, the geese traditionally feed on intertidal marsh plants, but in recent years they’ve moved inland, feeding on farmers’ fields, parks, sports fields and even residential backyards, and leaving muddy, goose-poop land behind.

Paralympian Jim Armstrong pleads guilty to drug charges by Todd Coyne Contributor Paralympic gold medallist and retired Richmond dentist Jim Armstrong and his son Gregory could face up to three years in a U.S. prison after pleading guilty to selling counterfeit erectile dysfunction drugs. Armstrong, 59, was a skip on the Canadian Paralympic curling team, leading them to a gold medal at the Vancouver 2010 Paralympics. His trial was due to begin Monday, but Armstrong instead made a guilty plea Oct. 21. According to court records from the Western Washington U.S. District Attorney’s Office, on April 9, 2010, Customs and Border Protection agents in Los Angeles intercepted a package sent from Hyyuan, China containing 2,544 counterfeit Viagra pills and 260 counterfeit Cialis pills. The package was addressed to Carleen Armstrong, Jim’s late wife who passed away in Septem-

ber 2009, at a mailbox in Blaine, Wash. used by both Jim and Gregory Armstrong, 28, also of Richmond. According to the operators of the Mail Boxes International store, the Armstrongs received packages on a weekly basis from China and India—countries where counterfeit drugs are routinely manufactured. On April 15, the elder Armstrong was arrested outside the mailbox store after picking up the package and examining its contents in the store. As part of his plea, Armstrong admitted he distributed the drugs in Canada to people who did not have a prescription for them. According to a written statement given by Armstrong’s arresting officer, Jim Burkhardt of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Armstrong informed him at the time of his arrest that his son, Gregory, purchased the drugs and sold them at nightclubs in and around Vancouver.

Prosecutors in the case are recommending the elder Armstrong pay a $50,000 fine, perform community service and be sentenced to the time he has already served. As for Gregory Armstrong, prosecutors will recommend a sentence of one year plus a day in prison, according to a statement from the U. S. District Attorney’s office.

Campbell ‘streamlines’ resource ministries Premier Gordon Campbell has made structural changes to the provincial cabinet he says will help attract global investment to B.C.’s resource industries. Forests Minister Pat Bell has been given responsibility for mines, and former agriculture

minister Steve Thomson is heading a new Ministry of Natural Resource Operations. Campbell said the cabinet reorganization is to help develop the B.C. economy in the wake of the 2010 Olympics, and is not an effort to restore his party’s sagging pop-

ularity. NDP leader Carole James said the appointment of Chilliwack MLA John Les as “parliamentary secretary for HST information” is an insult to taxpayers who have rejected the new sales tax. The only promotion from the B.C. Liberal

back benches goes to Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux, who becomes minister of community, sport and cultural development. —Black Press

Blue pigment would fade over time, staff says

HST question out in November by Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. taxpayers will see the draft version of the referendum question on the harmonized sales tax as soon as the Chief Electoral Officer has written it, Attorney General Mike de Jong says. De Jong spoke to reporters Tuesday after meeting with the acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James. “He [James] is going to prepare a draft question that he is comfortable

with, and I expect to get that in two or three weeks,” de Jong said. “As soon as I do I’ll release it to the public, and then next spring when the house convenes, we’ll submit that to the assembly for MLAs to offer any feedback.” The initiative petition spearheaded by former premier Bill Vander Zalm calls for the HST to be “extinguished” and refunds paid to all taxpayers for any extra sales tax collected since the provincial sales tax was replaced on July 1.

The blue trees would remain in that temporary location for four to eight weeks, with the colourant fading over time. “Depending on how much precipitation we get next spring…it’ll gradually just wear off,” Fiss told council on Tuesday. Afterwards, the trees would be permanently planted either in the park or elsewhere in Richmond. The artist is flexible when it comes to the tree species, but had eyed some young oaks on a previous visit to a Richmond nursery. Coun. Ken Johnston asked what steps would be taken to deter vandalism. Fiss said two residential towers overlook the site and there is a playground nearby. “The trees themselves will be heavy,” Fiss added. “It would take a lot for somebody to come by with a truck and steal one.” Blue Trees would be the eighth Biennale artwork in Richmond, joining the ranks of Heads at Lansdowne Canada Line Station, Wind Waves at Garry Point and Water #10 on the Middle Arm greenway. The city would cover the $25,000 cost of acquiring, transporting, maintaining and eventually planting the trees. Dimopoulos would provide the $1,500 pigment, and the Biennale would pay for his transportation and accommodation. Fiss said Domopoulos has installed Blue Trees before without issue.

Community hall transforms into ‘Terror Hall’ From Page 1

All ďŹ reworks events are free for the whole family and disability accessible. •On now until Oct. 31 at the East Richmond Community Hall, an all-ages house of fears, phobias, darkness and dread known as “Terror Hallâ€? will be running from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. afterwards until Halloween.

From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. nightly, a less frightful “family hour� with fewer actors and fewer special effects will be observed. Admission is a $2 donation to B.C. Breast Cancer Awareness and visitors will get a free hotdog. If a visit to a haunted house is in the cards for your ideal Fright Night, then look no further.

•Dr. Lupin’s Mad Scientist Lab is back again this year at #74 - 12551 Cambie Rd., just across from the East Richmond Community Centre. All are welcome to a spooktacular visit with the doctor from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Halloween. •For a zombie-themed scare, lurch on over to 11731 No. 2 Rd. on Saturday or Sunday night between 5 p.m. and

11 p.m. for a truly unique yard display. But instead of brains to assuage the beasts, please bring a non-perishable food item for the Richmond Food Bank Society. Looking for some daytime Halloween fun this weekend? • On Saturday, the Richmond Nature Park is presenting “Creatures of Halloweenâ€? from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The park’s wildlife experts will

share the secrets of some of Halloween’s most mysterious animals like bats and owls. Stick around for some spooky creature tales afterwards. Visitors are required to pre-register for this all-ages event. $6 per person. • Join the ghosts of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery this Saturday and Sunday for tours of the historically haunted locale. $10 for adults, $7.50 for seniors, $5 for youths and free for children ďŹ ve and younger, the haunted tours

are at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., with an extra spooky tour not recommended for children at 5:30 p.m. For young children and the faint of heart, Sunday’s 1 p.m. tour will be a not-so-spooky kids tour. And, as always, Richmond RCMP and Richmond FireRescue are encouraging the public to be safe this Halloween, reminding residents that the possession and use of ďŹ reworks without a permit is illegal in Richmond.

opinion Students need planning refresher

U

BC’s Alma Mater Society deserves top grades for communication but an “incomplete,” at best, in land use planning and economics for suggesting that rapid transit to the university deserves the same priority as SkyTrain expansion in Surrey. The students get an A for publicizing their plea to get rapid transit service to the Point Grey campus before or at the same time as the province’s fastest growing municipality but older and wiser folks would caution them to be wary of what they wish for. Sure, it’s frustrating to watch an over-crowded bus pass you by when you’re late for physics class but, really, should students whose university career is short-lived get priority over property owners south of the Fraser who have been short-changed on transit for years? Most of these students weren’t even born when rapid transit was first proposed for the Tri-Cities and Surrey, and if these regions are to curb sprawl and develop sustainable, liveable cities, they need rapid transit—and sooner rather than later. Rapid transit to UBC, although certainly desirable, won’t pull nearly as many cars off roads as rapid transit to the Tri-Cities, Surrey and Langley. Transit is also crucial for the region’s economy—and the air shed. It will get people out of their cars and free up road space for goods-moving vehicles. The only thing rapid transit to UBC will do is give students and faculty a more convenient ride. No one is saying TransLink shouldn’t improve transit to UBC; what Metro Vancouver is saying is, wait your turn. Property owners and drivers are going to foot the bill, so let’s make sure transportation meets their needs. Students, we feel your pain. We stood in line in the rain with a knapsack full of books while a bus passed us by and we think you have the fortitude to wait a few more years for the gravy train. And when you’re living in the ’burbs with a mortgage and a minivan, you’ll be glad someone had the foresight—and the cash—to build rapid transit where it’s really needed. —Black Press (The Tri-City News)

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

T

he B.C. government is expecting recommendations any day now from its task force set up to examine local taxation of industry. Here’s a tax issue that could use some of the public attention that’s been lavished on the anti-HST circus. It has smouldered for years with mill closures and flared up recently with a forest industry tax revolt against selected (mostly coastal) municipalities. Rich Coleman set the tone during his tour as forests minister, when he said local governments are “dining out” on their industrial base, overtaxing mills while giving a free ride to the residential voters who keep them in

office. In some cases the mill is paying 20 times the tax rate of a homeowner, without regard to the local services actually consumed by each one. Finance Minister Colin Hansen got a verbal draft of the task force’s recommendations at the end of September. He didn’t wait for the written version, giving his response to the key recommendation to mayors and councillors at their convention in Whistler. Do not expect a proposed $25 million transition fund for those municipalities who let their industrial taxes get out of control. “The ratio between the residential tax rates and the industrial tax rates in some communities is a problem for job creation and job retention in those communities that I think local governments have to deal with,” Hansen told reporters at the convention. “We want to be a supporting partner, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re simply going to be writing big cheques.” Hansen mentioned Powell River, one of the mill towns where Catalyst Paper withheld $15 million in property

taxes and went to court to protest the rate. After municipalities’ right to set outrageous tax rates was upheld in court, Catalyst pleaded with Premier Gordon Campbell to provide some interim assistance to the communities. Paying their current costs means shutting the doors. Powell River got that message, and began negotiating what it will take to keep its mill from shutting down, being dismantled and scrapped or shipped to Asia. Nanaimo came to that stage with the Harmac pulp mill and it has reined in its industrial taxation for new owners. Employees there also learned the hard way about pricing yourself out of the marketplace, buying shares, taking pay cuts and cranking up productivity to restore their jobs. The grind continues for towns such as Port Alberni. Catalyst workers there have voted 98 per cent to reject a company bid to reopen their contract, which runs to 2012 and includes a three per cent wage increase set for next year. The union says the company wants concessions that

add up to 21 per cent. If the local taxpayers won’t pay more to keep the mill going, the workers will have to, under this owner or the one that picks up the pieces after bankruptcy. Is the B.C. government going to ride to the rescue of these communities, many of which are growing on the residential side as the baby boom retires? No. And it shouldn’t, either. Municipal leaders came away from their convention with a faint hope that cabinet will consider some kind of aid in the spring budget. But Hansen said that would send a poor message to communities with more reasonable tax rates. The province would be using their tax money to subsidize communities that have been gouging industry. It’s a low-profile version of the harmonized sales tax debate. Consumers, in this case consumers of roads and sewers, are being asked to pay their way.

Editor: Re: “Value of public art?â€? Editorial, Oct. 21. I disagree with the editor that the city’s purchase of Wind Waves at Garry Point is a no-brainer. It detracts from a perfectly lovely view of the ocean and the islands. There are already two aesthetically-pleasing and culturally signiďŹ cant pieces of art at Garry Point: the Fishermen’s Memorial and the Japanese garden. I personally would be happy to see Wind Waves wave “bye bye,â€? especially if it has a seven-ďŹ gure price tag. Teresa Rush Richmond

Misinterpreted ‘Miss Mao’ is a favourite Matthew Hoekstra ďŹ le photo Yvonne Domenge’s Olas de Viento (Wind Waves). Editor: Re: “Value of public art?â€? Editorial, Oct. 21. Wind Waves or even Water #10 are indeed no-brainer choices of the artworks here for the Biennale. However, the Miss Mao is by far my favourite and I would appreciate if it stayed. I don’t get to its corner all that often but when I do the positions of the segments of the piece are frequently changed since the previous viewing. It does add to the notion of an organization trying to meld a philosophy into their own objectives and how they might need to quickstep when a particular aspect of it moves in directions that don’t ďŹ t their ideas. The non-thought that it could be an approbation of Lenin’s ideas or Mao’s policies is quite silly but it did show that many people respond to situations without seeing the object in question or stopping to rev their brains—before putting their mouths in gear.

by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter Richmond’s historic Minoru Chapel is set to host its second opera performance of the season, this time featuring City Opera Vancouver.

The professional chamber opera company will perform inside the intimate venue Wednesday, Nov. 3, in a show that organizers say will appeal to both music fans and newcomers to the opera world. “It’s a program of well-known arias

and also some arias perhaps not so well known, but that opera lovers will recognize and be really eager to hear,” said producer Tom Durrie, who will host and narrate the show. The evening’s set includes pieces by “all of the big guns,” such as Puccini, Mozart and Verdi. Audiences will likely recognize arias from La Boheme, and will be introduced to lesser-known pieces by Mozart. The performance will also feature duets from world-famous operas Rigoletto, La Traviata and Don Giovanni. Durrie selected famous songs that would be “immediately appealing” to the public, as well as some relatively unknown yet “extraordinarily beautiful” numbers. “People will just end up with a song in their heart—they’ll love it so much,” he said of the show. Wednesday’s performance will be led by two award-winning young singers—and a real-life couple—who are both studying at the Vancouver Academy of Music. Soprano Mariana Valdés, from Mexico, and tenor Nicolas Rhind, from Toronto, will be accompanied by City Opera Vancouver vocal coach Greg Caisley on piano. Durrie worked with the two up-andcoming opera stars on Italian Day in Vancouver last spring and quickly learned of their powerful stage presence. “It was a miserable, rainy day and 200 people stood out in the rain to

It’s just amazing that people seem to be more and more eager to hear opera and to go to the opera,” he said. “Opera provides such a rich emotional and artistic experience because it’s got everything: it’s got the theatre, it has the wonderful singing, and the emotion and great music.” Durrie’s parents took him to see

on the wall, before the tables and chairs were placed, before the paint was dry, people were anxious for this fresh and fast Indian food. As a newly-married couple, TJ and Raman Kooner spent six months thinking up a business idea around food. The idea sprung from the fact that Indian dining tends to be more fine dining. No one was

that held my interest from start to ďŹ nish. Mickey Haller, a longtime defence attorney takes on the case of Jason Jessup, a guy who’s been imprisoned for 24 years for murdering a little girl. The case is being retried because of new DNA evidence. Except this time, Haller’s on the other side of the aisle, working as a special prosecutor. Included in his team are Los Angeles Police Department detective Harry Bosch, and Haller’s ex-wife Maggie McPherson (or McFierce as she’s called). They’re up against clever Clive Royce, Jessup’s defence attorney, who’s as slimy as they come. When he’s not busy giving interviews to the press and shining the spotlight on himself, he’s ďŹ guring out ways to embarrass the prosecution and get Jessup a notguilty verdict.

ment, Jessup is out on bail with no real restrictions on his movement. The fact that he meets with a known bad guy who deals in guns only makes the reader wonder what they were thinking letting this guy out in the ďŹ rst place. With 24-hour-a-day police surveillance on Jessup, Bosch learns that he’s spending his late nights in a few county parks around Los Angeles. Sparking concern that Jessup might be revisiting some old kills or possibly scoring some new ones, the heat is on to get this guy back in prison. The story contains some fascinating courtroom drama and lots of high suspense out-ofcourt action. But the ending, unfortunately, was a bit contrived for my taste. Connelly seems to have taken the easy way out with a convenient turn of events that neatly ties up all the loose ends. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t recommend the book though. It’s got a lot of energy and spark to it and readers will enjoy the back-and-forth courtroom antics. For Connelly fans and others, this one’s an eight out of 10.

A win for the members of the Richmond Chamber t the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s annual general meeting (AGM), held September 25 to 28, 2010 in the National Capital Region, the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, at the request of its members, submitted a resolution, entitled “Moving Beyond Blue Skies Into Truly Open Skies�. This resolution was presented in partnership with the Prince George Chamber of Commerce. Open skies is an international policy concept which calls for the liberalization of rules and regulations on international aviation industry most specifically commercial aviation - opening a free market for the airline industry. The resolution, urges the federal government to “move beyond the current Blue Skies policy and embrace a true open skies approach to air agreements� both in passenger and cargo (see attached “Moving Beyond Blue Skies Into Truly Open Skies� resolution). We are pleased to report that Open Skies is also of importance to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and its network of chambers of commerce and boards of trade across Canada.

A

Celebrate theSeason!

At the AGM, our resolution was approved by the Canadian Chamber’s chambers of commerce and boards of trade, representing 192,000 Canadian businesses. Our resolution is now a policy position of the Canadian Chamber and its members and will be pursued with the federal government over the coming months. Among the recommendations the Canadian Chamber is making to the federal government regarding air agreements is the appeal to allow the establishment of foreign owned but Canadian domiciled carriers (right of establishment), and to introduce greater transparency into the negotiating process by allowing airports equal status at the negotiating table with airlines and by ensuring that all agreements are open and transparent. “Jurisdictions around the world have shown that increasing competition and transparency lead to more job creation and better agreements,� said John Winter, President & CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce. “The business community has sent a clear message; the government’s approach needs to change.�

NND announces new program urse Next Door Richmond launched an at home Cognitive Care program for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The Cognitive Care Program from Nurse Next Door is a scientifically designed program of thinking & activity focused exercises. It has been specifically created for persons already experiencing memory loss, early to moderate Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and stroke. The Cognitive Care program is a structured series of interactive brain exercises and activities designed to treat developing Alzheimer’s symptoms. The system is paper based and workbooks are matched to the client’s history. For example, if they were a carpenter the program is geared more towards carpentry in order to stimulate memories. The benefit of the program is that it helps maintain or increase cognitive function which allows participants to remain living at home longer, where they can enjoy continued access to familiar surroundings, as well as very important social, community, and family resources. The Cognitive Care program includes an initial questionnaire for a baseline assessment of the patient’s current status. The Nurse Next Door Certified Cognitive Care Specialists then visit for a one hour session twice per week and re-assess cognitive function at three month intervals. Both the initial assessment and administration of the care are conducted in the privacy and comfort of the patient’s home. The best feedback received has been that most family members notice changes in daily living activities after only eight weeks! The program does not include any medications, nor will it interfere with any medication a client is currently receiving.

The Richmond Review • Page A23

sports Depth has ruggers rolling One heartening sight this season for longtime Richmond Rugby Club member Jon Malchy is the number of players standing on the sidelines ready to enter games if needed. It has allowed the Second Division team, he says, to be more flexible with playing time. “Secondly, the support from past players, juniors, fans, and our sponsors has made the playing experience enjoyable for all,” he says. It paid off again last Saturday as Richmond remained undefeated, rolling to its sixth win with a 39-10 B.C. Rugby Union victory over Langley. But it was Langley that enjoyed the good start, up 10-0 against an initially-stagnant Richmond offence. It wasn’t until breaks by centres Brandon Sims and Matt McIntyre that Richmond began to get untracked. See Page A25

Ast 5th in Major Midget scoring

Don Fennell photo The R.A. McMath Wildcats’ Black team is poised to pick up another Richmond secondary schools senior boys’ soccer title, going into this week’s league playoffs undefeated (8-0). The final is set for 3:30 p.m. at Richmond High.

With three Richmondites playing prominent roles, the Greater Vancouver Canadians hold down second place in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. Six weeks into the schedule, the Canadians are 9-3-0 and a single point back of the leading Vancouver Northwest Giants (9-0-1). The Canadians have outscored their opposition 56-32. Richmond’s Anthony Ast, the first pick of the Vancouver Giants in the 2010 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, leads the Canadians in scoring with six goals and 10 assists in 12 games. The point total is fifthbest in the league. Carter Popoff has six goals and five assists, while goalie Brodie Burdeny has played in six (half ) of the Canadians’ games. The Canadians are coming off 4-2 and 6-5 wins over the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs last weekend.

Regional success helps skaters ready for prime time by Don Fennell Sports Editor The B.C. Coast Regional Figure Skating Championships isn’t a qualifier for next month’s B.C./Yukon Sectional in Kelowna, but it’s a good preview. With several Connaught athletes figuring prominently at the 2011 regional last weekend in Mission, head coach Keegan Murphy is brimming with optimism as the provincials near. “Achieving a top-five or podium placement is very exciting for any skater as it is the most competitive regional event of the year. It’s a great measure of their progress,” Murphy said. “Outside of this region, Kelowna is home to a group of athletes who are very competitive as well.”

Connaught’s most remarkable performance last weekend may well have been by Mitchell Gordon, who won the Novice men’s event. He executed four flawless triple jumps in the long program, scoring 80 points in his free skate and 118 points overall. This separated him from the rest of the Novice skaters by 16 points. Mitchell’s score is also a national record for this year. “If he can maintain this level of performance at upcoming events, he will be a strong contender at the 2011 Canadian championships (in Victoria) in January,” Murphy said. Also earning competitive event championships were Claudia Makhanko-Tang in Pre-Juvenile Ladies and Evan Mak in Juvenile Men. In the lower categories, Richmond skaters grabbed five po-

dium positions, including three gold medals. Murphy said this shows the continued quality of the developmental stages within Connaught Skating Club’s unique training structure— grooming young skaters to thrive in competition and to perform with confidence. Gold medal winners included Alisa Katsuno, Basil Wang and Megan Kan. Medal count aside, various Connaught athletes also succeeded in achieving personal-best point totals in their respective events. Highlights included Eurwen Szeto (fourth in Pre-Novice Ladies), Kurtis Schrieber (third in Pre-Novice Men) and Lizabet Shein (seventh in Pre-Novice Ladies). In all, Connaught skaters reached the top of the podium in six different events and collected 12 medals. •Complete regional results at www.richmondreview.com

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s badminton team finished a close second to Douglas College at the inaugural B.C. Colleges tournament last weekend. And the Eagles can thank a pair of Richmond players for their contributions. Ashley Jang and mixed doubles partner Jensen Ly upset the nationally-ranked team of Stephanie Ko and Darren Hong in a three-set match from Douglas (7-21, 21-12, 21-19). Rookie Andrew Li was perhaps the biggest surprise on the second day of action. Li earned himself the “underdog title.” He was seeded 11th. After four singles matches, three going to three games, he wound up sixth overall and second in the B pool draw. OWN IT FOR ONLY

sports First Division team eying springtime promotion McIntyre would score Richmond’s first try, but injure his shoulder on the same play forcing him out of the game. •In First Division play, Richmond outscored Langley 33-22. The game was pivotal for both teams as Richmond needed a victory to guarantee a possible promotion to the B Division for the spring season. Langley needs a win to avoid relegation to the lower C tier. Langley gained the upper hand early and led 12-0 at one point. But Richmond battled back with Wayne Polutu, who it seems draws two or three tacklers every carry, able to take the ball over the line for Richmond’s first try. Marc Gaudreault and John Findlay followed suit as Richmond took a 20-12 lead into the second half. Langley only had the ball for eight or nine minutes into the second half, but were able to score a pair of tries to make things interesting. •Richmond’s U-17 squad was overpowered by a touring Welsh side

PET WEEK OF THE

Handsome Alabaster was very well-loved in his former home; unfortunately his guardian developed an allergy months after adopting him. He is independent, and would prefer to be your one and only cat companion! He likes to play, and enjoys having lots of visitors. He would be just fine with a busy household. Come and see this awesome snowy-white cat today!

> Harvest Lantern Festival at West Richmond Community Centre

West Richmond lights up the harvest season

Around Town Amanda Oye Emily Vera, Merry King Preschool co-ordinator, helped organize.

Lyle Povah led the drumming session during the festival.

R

ainy skies could not extinguish the flames in the children of West Richmond’s homemade lanterns or in their spirits.

Despite the weather, a crowd of around 300 made their way to West Richmond Community Centre’s 11th annual Harvest Lantern Festival with donations for the food bank last Thursday evening. “It went well,” said Emily Vera, who helped organize the event. “The weather of course was a challenge.” Less than half an hour before the outdoor event was supposed to begin rain prompted a mad

scramble to move everything undercover. The chaos was worth it as kids quickly filled up spots at the face painting station, and a long line formed in front of the balloon art table. A drumming session inside Hugh Boyd Secondary’s foyer, and a community dance in the school’s gym were also highlights. The night ended with a parade of lanterns around the community centre. The festival is about “celebrating the harvest … and recognizing how fortunate we are,” Vera said. The West Richmond Community Association Board supports and funds the event with help from the City of Richmond. Volunteers from R.C. Palmer Secondary also played a large role in making the festival possible.

Seth, Steve and Tali Grenzberg at the Harvest Lantern Festival.

Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Richmond Review. Reach her at amanda.oye@ telus.net.

Audrey, Caleb, Noah and Jason Jang.

Hiroko Turnbull and Lily Umeno collected donations for the food bank. Paul and Kiana Schaffer.

Out of School Care staff from the community centre made balloon art for the kids at the festival.

The Richmond Sockeyes look to use their game-in-hand on the Delta Ice Hawks Thursday to regain top spot in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s Tom Shaw Conference. The Sockeyes, which host the Ridge Meadows Flames (7:30 p.m. at Minoru Arena), are a point back of Delta after a 4-3 overtime loss to the Ice Hawks Tuesday in Ladner. But Richmond still has the fewest (two) outright losses of any team in the PIJHL. The Sockeyes drubbed

Campbell ‘streamlines’ resource ministries Premier Gordon Campbell has made structural changes to the provincial cabinet he says will help attract global investment to B.C.’s resource industries. Forests Minister Pat Bell has been given responsibility for mines, and former agriculture

minister Steve Thomson is heading a new Ministry of Natural Resource Operations. Campbell said the cabinet reorganization is to help develop the B.C. economy in the wake of the 2010 Olympics, and is not an effort to restore his party’s sagging pop-

ularity. NDP leader Carole James said the appointment of Chilliwack MLA John Les as “parliamentary secretary for HST information” is an insult to taxpayers who have rejected the new sales tax. The only promotion from the B.C. Liberal

back benches goes to Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux, who becomes minister of community, sport and cultural development. —Black Press

Blue pigment would fade over time, staff says

HST question out in November by Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. taxpayers will see the draft version of the referendum question on the harmonized sales tax as soon as the Chief Electoral Officer has written it, Attorney General Mike de Jong says. De Jong spoke to reporters Tuesday after meeting with the acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James. “He [James] is going to prepare a draft question that he is comfortable

with, and I expect to get that in two or three weeks,” de Jong said. “As soon as I do I’ll release it to the public, and then next spring when the house convenes, we’ll submit that to the assembly for MLAs to offer any feedback.” The initiative petition spearheaded by former premier Bill Vander Zalm calls for the HST to be “extinguished” and refunds paid to all taxpayers for any extra sales tax collected since the provincial sales tax was replaced on July 1.

The blue trees would remain in that temporary location for four to eight weeks, with the colourant fading over time. “Depending on how much precipitation we get next spring…it’ll gradually just wear off,” Fiss told council on Tuesday. Afterwards, the trees would be permanently planted either in the park or elsewhere in Richmond. The artist is flexible when it comes to the tree species, but had eyed some young oaks on a previous visit to a Richmond nursery. Coun. Ken Johnston asked what steps would be taken to deter vandalism. Fiss said two residential towers overlook the site and there is a playground nearby. “The trees themselves will be heavy,” Fiss added. “It would take a lot for somebody to come by with a truck and steal one.” Blue Trees would be the eighth Biennale artwork in Richmond, joining the ranks of Heads at Lansdowne Canada Line Station, Wind Waves at Garry Point and Water #10 on the Middle Arm greenway. The city would cover the $25,000 cost of acquiring, transporting, maintaining and eventually planting the trees. Dimopoulos would provide the $1,500 pigment, and the Biennale would pay for his transportation and accommodation. Fiss said Domopoulos has installed Blue Trees before without issue.

sports First Division team eying springtime promotion From Page A23

McIntyre would score Richmond’s first try, but injure his shoulder on the same play forcing him out of the game. •In First Division play, Richmond outscored Langley 33-22. The game was pivotal for both teams as Richmond needed a victory to guarantee a possible promotion to the B Division for the spring season. Langley needs a win to avoid relegation to the lower C tier. Langley gained the upper hand early and led 12-0 at one point. But Richmond battled back with Wayne Polutu, who it seems draws two or three tacklers every carry, able to take the ball over the line for Richmond’s first try. Marc Gaudreault and John Findlay followed suit as Richmond took a 20-12 lead into the second half. Langley only had the ball for eight or nine minutes into the second half, but were able to score a pair of tries to make things interesting. •Richmond’s U-17 squad was overpowered by a touring Welsh side

Saturday but was back at it Sunday, putting its 1-1 league record on the line against United Rugby Club and settling for a 10-10 draw, missing a convert as time expired

after a try by Alvin Chung from a metre out. Austin Matilda scored the other Richmond try. •Richmond’s mini-rugby program also attended its first jamboree on

Sunday with a team of Kindergarten and Grade 1 students. Coach Jamie Ovegaard said they seemed to enjoy their first introduction to competitive rugby.

And the Eagles can thank a pair of Richmond players for their contributions. Ashley Jang and mixed doubles partner Jensen Ly upset the nationally-ranked team of Stephanie Ko and Darren Hong in a three-set match from Douglas (7-21, 21-12, 21-19). Rookie Andrew Li was perhaps the biggest surprise on the second day of action. Li earned himself the â&#x20AC;&#x153;underdog title.â&#x20AC;? He was seeded 11th. After four singles matches, three going to three games, he wound up sixth overall and second in the B pool draw.

sports Depth has ruggers rolling One heartening sight this season for longtime Richmond Rugby Club member Jon Malchy is the number of players standing on the sidelines ready to enter games if needed. It has allowed the Second Division team, he says, to be more flexible with playing time. “Secondly, the support from past players, juniors, fans, and our sponsors has made the playing experience enjoyable for all,” he says. It paid off again last Saturday as Richmond remained undefeated, rolling to its sixth win with a 39-10 B.C. Rugby Union victory over Langley. But it was Langley that enjoyed the good start, up 10-0 against an initially-stagnant Richmond offence. It wasn’t until breaks by centres Brandon Sims and Matt McIntyre that Richmond began to get untracked. See Page A25

Ast 5th in Major Midget scoring

Don Fennell photo The R.A. McMath Wildcats’ Black team is poised to pick up another Richmond secondary schools senior boys’ soccer title, going into this week’s league playoffs undefeated (8-0). The final is set for 3:30 p.m. at Richmond High.

With three Richmondites playing prominent roles, the Greater Vancouver Canadians hold down second place in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. Six weeks into the schedule, the Canadians are 9-3-0 and a single point back of the leading Vancouver Northwest Giants (9-0-1). The Canadians have outscored their opposition 56-32. Richmond’s Anthony Ast, the first pick of the Vancouver Giants in the 2010 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, leads the Canadians in scoring with six goals and 10 assists in 12 games. The point total is fifthbest in the league. Carter Popoff has six goals and five assists, while goalie Brodie Burdeny has played in six (half ) of the Canadians’ games. The Canadians are coming off 4-2 and 6-5 wins over the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs last weekend.

Regional success helps skaters ready for prime time by Don Fennell Sports Editor The B.C. Coast Regional Figure Skating Championships isn’t a qualifier for next month’s B.C./Yukon Sectional in Kelowna, but it’s a good preview. With several Connaught athletes figuring prominently at the 2011 regional last weekend in Mission, head coach Keegan Murphy is brimming with optimism as the provincials near. “Achieving a top-five or podium placement is very exciting for any skater as it is the most competitive regional event of the year. It’s a great measure of their progress,” Murphy said. “Outside of this region, Kelowna is home to a group of athletes who are very competitive as well.”

Connaught’s most remarkable performance last weekend may well have been by Mitchell Gordon, who won the Novice men’s event. He executed four flawless triple jumps in the long program, scoring 80 points in his free skate and 118 points overall. This separated him from the rest of the Novice skaters by 16 points. Mitchell’s score is also a national record for this year. “If he can maintain this level of performance at upcoming events, he will be a strong contender at the 2011 Canadian championships (in Victoria) in January,” Murphy said. Also earning competitive event championships were Claudia Makhanko-Tang in Pre-Juvenile Ladies and Evan Mak in Juvenile Men. In the lower categories, Richmond skaters grabbed five po-

dium positions, including three gold medals. Murphy said this shows the continued quality of the developmental stages within Connaught Skating Club’s unique training structure— grooming young skaters to thrive in competition and to perform with confidence. Gold medal winners included Alisa Katsuno, Basil Wang and Megan Kan. Medal count aside, various Connaught athletes also succeeded in achieving personal-best point totals in their respective events. Highlights included Eurwen Szeto (fourth in Pre-Novice Ladies), Kurtis Schrieber (third in Pre-Novice Men) and Lizabet Shein (seventh in Pre-Novice Ladies). In all, Connaught skaters reached the top of the podium in six different events and collected 12 medals. •Complete regional results at www.richmondreview.com

s we begin the 2010/2011 season, our Silver Anniversary year, the Richmond Chorus and Orchestra is sounding better than ever. The musicians are looking forward to a wonderful year and are preparing some excellent concerts for our audience’s enjoyment. Like many arts organizations, we struggle to deal with cuts in government funding, as well as the slow economic recovery we are all experiencing. In spite of these difficulties, we have not raised our ticket prices this year. We continue, as a registered charity, to be fiscally responsible, and we conduct the business of our organization as economically as possible. Included in our mandate is an obligation to support other charitable organizations; e.g. our Haiti Relief fundraising concert last year, our upcoming “Richmond Sings” concert (Oct. 25, 2010) in aid of local children living in poverty, our practice of making free concert tickets available to those in need. Our annual budget runs between $80,000 and $90,000. Our operating funds comprise four main sources: • individual membership fees paid by each musician • proceeds from concerts • members’ fundraising efforts (raffles, silent auction, etc.) • donations, bequests, etc. We are fortunate to have an endowment fund (administered by the Richmond Community Foundation), thanks to a generous bequest by a former Chorus member, Roy Neville Wrigley. This fund

ALAN RAE

helps provide us with ongoing sustaining funding. However, even though that endowment is sizeable, we can access only the earnings from it, not the principle, and proceeds from the fund made up less than 20% of our 2009/2010 income. Those who have attended our concerts will have seen our dedication and experienced the joy of listening to good music. We invite all interested music-lovers to support us in our goal, in all or any of the following ways: • attend our concerts and bring a friend • send us a gift of $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can afford • contribute to the Roy Neville Wrigley fund of the Richmond Community Foundation Individually and collectively, the members of ROCA want to continue providing excellent musical entertainment and leadership for this community. The members, the Board of Directors, and the staff are all dedicated to this end. We are very excited about celebrating this 25th year, and look forward to contributing to the vibrant artistic life of this community for years to come. We invite you to join us in our Silver Celebration. Barbara Baker President

THE FUTURE

W

hen we look back on the past 20 years of the Richmond Community Foundation it is amazing what has been accomplished. The next 20 years will be even more amazing. Philanthropy is growing in Richmond and today’s citizens and businesses are making the strategic decision to invest their philanthropic dollars in a manner that will support the community today and in the future by establishing endowment funds with us. Our major objectives as a community foundation will continue to be twofold, one to help individuals and businesses in Richmond meet their philanthropic goals and second to address the existing and emerging charitable needs of the community of Richmond making Richmond the best place it can be to work, live and play by building permanent endowment funds and disbursing the invested capital for charitable purposes. As we move forward our current goal is to build the endowed capital to more than $6M within the next couple of years and as the future unfolds continue to build on that endowed asset base. Over these past 20 years our grant making has become more sophisticated. To be more strategic in funding community needs we are now moving into a community dialogue format unitizing “Vital Signs”, a needs assessment research tool by the Vancouver Foundation that includes Richmond. Generally Richmond is an affluent community but often not easily identifiable among us are the needs of the less fortunate. As we grow and mature as a community foundation the Richmond Community Foundation intends to increase distributable dollars through endowment building and prudent investment of that donated capital so that we are able to more significantly make a positive impact on addressing the charitable needs of our community and its people.

Congratulations to the Richmond Community Foundation on its 20th year! Proud supporters of the Richmond Community Foundation. 32 years in wealth management

REPORT FROM THE BOARD CHAIR

I

t is with genuine pleasure that I write this message to introduce the Richmond Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Community Report. From the early challenges of start-up, and through the growing years to the now firm establishment of the Foundation as a successful, well respected organization serving our community, we are celebrating twenty incredible years of helping to make Richmond a better place to live, work and play. As Chair of the Richmond Community Foundation, it is very gratifying to see the continued growth and contribution of the Foundation to our city. Richmond’s Foundation was started in 1990, as one of four in the Province at the time. Today there are 38 Mike Brow, Chair community foundations in BC and over 250 Canada-wide, showing the growing importance and recognition of these organizations to the well-being of communities across the nation. The Richmond Community Foundation’s story of success is one of collaboration and persistence involving many visionary and insightful people coming together around an important cause for our community. Indeed, many thank-you’s are due. On that note, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to extend a heart felt thank you to the City of Richmond, for their foresight and support in the early start-up days 20 years ago. There is no doubt that without their staff and support during the early years, the Foundation would not be where it is today. Also, I would like to say a special thank you to our ‘Founding Board’ and to Ralph May, the Founding Chair of the Foundation 20 years ago. These dedicated individuals were exceptional in their service to the Richmond Foundation, and in honour of the Foundation’s 20th Anniversary, we will be inducting them into our “Founders Circle.” The Richmond Community Foundation has grown its asset base of permanent endowment funds to over $3 million, exhibiting excellent momentum with a nine-fold increase in market value over the past five years, despite the difficult economic times. This momentum is indicative of the Foundation’s growing recognition, importance and respect in the Richmond community. While the Foundation funds continue to grow for the future needs of Richmond, equally important is how they have provided close to $700,000 in gratefully received funds over the years to many worthwhile charities in Richmond and a further $700,000 in scholarships to young students seeking to

further their education. Guided by a threefold purpose of stewardship, leadership and partnership, we stand proudly behind our mission: • To protect and grow the permanent funds through prudent investing • To offer and match grants for projects that will enhance the quality of life of all our citizens • To provide community leadership by identifying areas that need improvement, stimulating ideas and balancing priorities • To work with partners to act on opportunities and review performance • To establish and apply fair, equitable and transparent policies and procedures • To maintain ongoing communications with the community of Richmond Richmond Community Foundation is proud to be a major part of this unique and wonderful community, and looks forward to discussing future endowment funds with all individuals, families, corporations and organizations, to help them create a fund ‘that gives forever,’ and helps keep Richmond a great place to live, work and play. I hope you enjoy reading through our Community Report. For more information on how you can contribute to the Richmond Community Foundation, please visit our website at www.richmondfoundation.org. Sincerely, Mike Brow Board Chair

rom the inception of the RCF 20 years ago it was recognized that scholarship funds would form an integral part of the opportunities provided by endowment funds. This vision has been realized in many different ways and has provided students from all backgrounds support for their education. A relationship with the Richmond Board of Education has allowed for the selection of graduating students as they begin their post secondary education for up to 20% of the district provided scholarships. Scholarships have also been forwarded to students within the School District Trade Programs, courses close to the heart of some Fund Patrons.

success and sincere congratulations on their twenty years of service and achievement. Debbie Tablotney, Richmond School Trustee In recent years scholarship funds have been initiated to provide funding for others such as women returning to the work force, elite athletes or dental profession students. Scholarships from the Richmond Community Foundation continue to grow and expand. The support and generosity of donors allows recipients who, without help, may not otherwise have had a chance to pursue and realize their educational goals and achieve success in a wide variety of fields. The individuals and organizations who make these scholarship opportunities available truly make a difference in the life of the award recipients and our community. Linda McPhail, Richmond School Board Chair

reetings from the Board Chair of the Richmond Youth Foundation, Nadia Meherally. On behalf of the Richmond Youth Foundation (RYF) Executive Council and General Committee, I would like to congratulate the Richmond Community Foundation Board of Directors and volunteers for all the good they have contributed to improving our community over the past 20 years. With the support of local donors of the Richmond Community Foundation and through our own fundraising efforts, the RYF has been able to provide funding for community projects organized by or for Richmond youth. This year, with our simplified granting process, we hope to make it even easier for more young leaders to receive funding for their project ideas. Our website will be re-launched in mid-October and will feature an Ideas Bank where youth can share ideas with one another and connect with similar minded organizations. I look forward to another exciting year in launching more great youth initiatives. Nadia Meherally

SCHOLARSHIPS REALLY DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

T

he Richmond Community Foundation would like to thank Karin Sipko for her support of a number of very important programs, and scholarships through the Dr. Bud Sipko Memorial Endowment Fund. Mrs. Sipko set up this fund in her husband's name after his untimely death, and she is pleased to provide funding to a number of worthy causes. This fund was established as a Donor Directed Fund at the Richmond Community Foundation and allows Mrs. Sipko the flexibility to direct funds to various areas of the community of her choosing. Pictured below is a young Richmond man by the name of Matthew Choi, who is currently registered in the UBC DMD Program. Matthew recently traveled to Honduras where he, amongst other responsibilities as the sole dental student in their communities helped develop and implement oral health care lessons for mothers and children. “Bud would have enjoyed meeting this young man and would have enthusiastically supported his studies and volunteer efforts,” stated Karin Sipko. “Being able to provide him a scholarship from his fund is very gratifying.” In addition to this scholarship, Karin Sipko, through her late husband’s fund has also helped and supported the Schoolyard Society in Terra Nova Park, as well as the Richmond Food Bank with a couple of special grants to support the Food Bank Dental Matthew Choi Scholarship Winner Hygiene Program. On-site preventive dental services are offered at both Food Bank locations four times a year, and include oral screening, flouride varnish and dental counselling for children and their families. In addition, all children from families using the Food Bank, receive an oral health grab bag four times a year. As you can see, the flexibility of this very important Donor Directed Fund at the Community Foundation is something that anyone interested in establishing such a fund can have. We thank and congratulate Karin Sipko for her vision of wanting to support their community of Richmond, and to remember Dr. Bud Sipko and how much he cared about his community. If you would like more information on how you can set up a Donor Directed Permanent Endowment Fund at the Richmond Community Foundation, please contact our office at (604) 270-4483, or go to our website at www.richmondfoundation.org.

REPORT FROM THE BOARD CHAIR 1990

FINANCIAL REPORT – YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31 2009

t has been a great pleasure to be able to participate in the twenty year anniversary of the Richmond Community Foundation. The credit for the idea of a Richmond Community Foundation belongs to others. I, however, was given the opportunity to moderate a discussion of the concept at a community conference a year or so before the founding of the Richmond Community Foundation. I was also given the opportunity and the privilege Ralph May, to work with a very able Board Chair 1990 group of directors, staff of the Municipality of Richmond, and volunteers to put the concept into reality. We could never have succeeded without the support of the Mayor and Council in the early days. It is wonderful to see how successful others have been in carrying this idea forward and making the Richmond Community Foundation the success that it is today.

The Richmond Community Foundation had another very successful year in increasing the endowments and grants received in the year from the community by over $600,000. In 2009, the society was able to recover virtually all of the 2008 losses on its investments recording an overall increases of approximately 13% in the market values.

I

I have always felt that the Municipality, or now City of Richmond, had an excellent sense of community and an excellent group of volunteers. This has proved out in the success of the Richmond Community Foundation and I am confident the Richmond Community Foundation can be a catalyst in continuing the community feeling and the community spirit in Richmond.

COMMUNITY REPORT 2010 GRANTS ver the past 20 years the Richmond Community Foundation has awarded over $600,000.00 in community grants to support the people of Richmond for needs as simple as dancing shoes for children to wheelchair accessible buses for seniors. From the Discretionary Community Grants Endowment Fund last year the Richmond Women’s Resource Centre received funding to promote the Richmond Shares Project. A program which is a web based initiative that matches low income people in need with individuals that have quality used household items they no longer need, such as furniture. Last year and this year, funds were provided to the Richmond Youth Foundation from the Discretionary Community Grants Endowment Fund for granting to support Richmond youth related projects. See the Richmond Youth Foundation for details on what those funds supported. In 2010 the Grants Committee has been reviewing the grant making process including utilizing the community research published by the Vancouver Foundation in Vital Signs to identify priority needs in Richmond and streamlining the Community Grant application procedures.

COMMUNITY REPORT OCTOBER 28, 2010

YOUNG PEOPLE AND PHILANTHROPY – WHAT’S NEW?

T

f we believe young people have something to say about their community, philanthropy, committee work and charity, how do we listen? This belief drove the Richmond Community Foundation to approach the inaugural year of the Leadership Now initiative of Richmond Volunteer and Information Services. It was such a success that the Foundation also took part the following year. As a result of this involvement the foundation decided that, not only should we have young people as directors on the board, but there should be a place for youth to drive fund development and grant processes. Hence, in 2007, the Richmond Youth Foundation was formed. An organization that, while under the auspices of the Community Foundation, has grown and developed into a well respected and vibrant part of the philanthropic community in Richmond. The RYF has provided young people an opportunity to work together, take on

he Richmond Youth Foundation (RYF) has had an eventful year. In addition to supporting and volunteering at local community initiatives, the RYF presented an interactive workshop at the Richmond Student Leadership Conference: Building a Case, Building Support, and Building Relationships. In April, the RYF co-hosted the Zenith 2010 Global Citizenship Conference, a day-long conference for young individuals to learn about pressing global issues and how to take action locally. The event took place at the River Rock Conference Centre, and featured 8 workshop sessions, the Zenith Volunteerism Fair, and the Zenith in Action project plan competition. In May, the RYF hosted its second annual RYF Benefit Brunch at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel. The event attracted over 100 youth and adult leaders for a morning of inspiration, learning, and idea cultivation. Funds raised from the Benefit Brunch went towards the RYF endowment fund, which is held in perpetuity to fund future youth community initiatives.

This past year, the RYF Grants Committee also held a consultation meeting with representatives from various youth sector organizations and programs to identify areas of need and interest in Richmond. The results were combined with the RCF Grants Scanning meeting results, and gave increased insight into issues in Richmond today. Recently, the RYF granted $2000.00 to the Richmond Society of Community Living’s Youth Connections to assist with renovations for a youth playground. The RYF is also aiming to attract more input from youth in the community. The new Ideas Bank initiative on the RYF website encourages young individuals to anonymously suggest ways on how to improve the community. As well, to simplify the grant application procedure, grant applicants can now directly fill in and submit their project information on the RYF website. For more information about the Richmond Youth Foundation’s community involvement, granting initiatives, and upcoming events, visit www.ryfoundation.org.

leadership roles, pursue funding and disburse grants to community projects. Their commitment to these purposes and their enthusiasm for this work has impressed everyone who has met with them. The RCF can be truly proud of facilitating this initiative and grateful to Volunteer Richmond for the Leadership Now program that enables young people to be active in our community. We, along with our Richmond Youth Foundation members, look forward to the future!

R

emember, it’s never too early to think about supporting the annual Christmas Fund Program managed by Volunteer Richmond Information Services. This program, led by Community Chair, Greg Halsey-Brandt, raises necessary dollars for those financially challenged. As we approach this fall/winter time of year, it is a time of celebration. Through generous donations from individuals, corporations and social organizations, the Fund strives to meet the needs of over 2,500 individuals and 600 families each year. In addition to being able to pledge funds to this program, Volunteer Richmond also established a permanent endowment fund at the Richmond Community Foundation to ensure long-term sustainability of this program. This investment will pay back for years to come. However in order to continue to grow this fund, your support is most welcome. With this and other initiatives, we hope no one need go without a Christmas. Also, if you would like to show your support, please keep in mind the “Giving at Christmas” event in support of the Richmond Christmas Fund. This event takes place at the Green River Presentation Centre at the Richmond Oval on Thursday November 18, 2010 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For more information on this and the Christmas Fund, please contact Volunteer Richmond at 279-7020, or the Richmond Community Foundation at 270-4483.

At home, home on the range

‘Laughter is brightest where food is best,’ according to an Irish proverb. And in order to create good food, a quality kitchen range is needed. From convection ovens to induction cooking technology, from ceramic cook tops to warming drawers and secondary ovens, kitchen ranges have come a long way from their wood-andcoal ancestors. There’s something for every chef, aspiring gourmand or foodie in today’s advanced market. ›› p.5

Renew at home: renovate

Make a media room you’ll love TRICIA LESLIE

Renewing an old home is a major undertaking: from the design process to permit approval to completion, it is an involved process for homeowner and renovator. When that renovation can actually give the homeowner more space, the renewal becomes an upgrade. Such was the case at a West Side Vancouver single-family home – situated on a desirable corner lot in a fantastic neighbourhood – where the house itself was in need of a major overhaul of almost everything from the ground up. The homeowners called in RJR Construction management. “This house is on a small corner lot. If the client had decided to tear down and rebuild, they would only have been allowed to build a 1,600-square-foot home,” notes RJR owner Shawn Stewart. “By renovating instead of building new, we were able to (make) it a 3,300-sq.-ft. home by creative use of guidelines while staying with the rules. It made perfect sense to renovate.” Stewart says they met these clients on a recent tour of homes where one of his company’s completed projects

The sectional couch, its cushions freshly plumped, awaits its guests for the evening. The coffee table is laid out with an impressive array of snacks; beverages and related mixes are lined up at the wet bar. The massive flatscreen TV – the focal point of the entire room – is mounted on the wall, ready to display the hockey game, the fight, the movie, or the PVR’d TV program from the night before. Home entertainment centres, or media rooms, have become extremely popular additions inside local Metro Vancouver homes, especially in a high-tech world that offers the best in flatscreen TVs, video games, video-game players, BluRay systems, high-definition technology and more. These days, 3D TVs combine the latest and greatest that technology has to offer – and homeowners are paying attention.

was on display. The homeowners were interviewing a number of contractors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is what everyone should do, Stewart says â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they really liked what RJR had done on the house on tour. So RJR made a full presentation and discussed everything with the clients, from fixedprice contracts to cost-plus to the approach on the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the client doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an architect, which this client didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, they need to contract with a company that has a design, architectural and build capability, which we do,â&#x20AC;? says Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of our complete service we were able to satisfy their needs from design to build with a fixed price. We told the client this renovation was going to be in the range of $600,000 to achieve what they wanted.â&#x20AC;? Before a fixed price is agreed on, RJR does a thorough examination of the home, assesses what can be seen, then evaluates what changes need to take place and the cost of those changes, and then go from there. RJR has the architectural/design department involved in the initial process and works closely with the estimating department, so they are well versed in the costing. This allows them to assure their clients â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if the scope of the project isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed by the clients â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what the price will be. Sometimes, there are unpredictable costs, Stewart says, but RJR does its best to mitigate

Make it hot at home: ďŹ replaces TRICIA LESLIE Fire has always been hailed as one of the most important discoveries of humankind. It gave early humans much-needed warmth, and a way to cook or smoke their hard-earned food. These days, fire may not be as much a necessity as it was thousands of years ago, but many homeowners still like to have a fireplace, sometimes more than one, within their dwelling. And often â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially with the trend of indoor-outdoor living year-round on B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Coast â&#x20AC;&#x201C; homeowners like to have a fireplace outside, too. Current homeowners have a lot more choice and variety than their ancestors did when it comes to fire; now, there are gas, electric and wood-burning fireplaces available, and even portable, ethanol-fuelled fires that can be used indoors and out. At Fireplaces Unlimited, sales manager Dale Fouquette says homeowners often choose what kind of fireplace they want depending on the size of their home, and on the scope of their home renovations.

From gas to electric, from wood-burning to ethanol-fuelled, a wide array of fireplaces are available to homeowners in all kinds of sizes, shapes, materials and designs. Fireplaces Unlimited sales manager Dale Fouquette, above, says the choice often depends on the homeowner and what kind of home they have (i.e. condo as opposed to single-family), as well as what kind of look they want.

Find a range that’s right for your kitchen MAGGIE CALLOWAY Amateur home chefs are likely more common now than ever before, thanks to The Food Network and other related TV shows and series. And they like the best and latest in the kitchen, where the newest kitchen ranges have now become a ‘must have’ for many, says Coast Wholesale Appliances’ Michael Ramsey. “We have been finding over the past five years (that) once you go up from your basic range, clients want to add a convection oven,” Ramsey says. “The advantage with the fan assist in a convection range is it helps move the warm air around the food, so it cooks quicker at a lower temperature. It provides better results for baking and if you are cooking a roast, it seals in the flavour.” Gas has always been considered the best way to go for the cook top because the chef can control the temperature much better than electricity. Where natural gas is not available, the fairly new ceramic tops have the advantage of providing more flat working space and are easier to clean, but controlling the temperature can be harder because the element

has to cycle on and off to prevent the surface from overheating. “Induction cooking technology is very popular right now for cook tops,” says Ramsey. Heat is generated by the interaction between the cooking surface and the cookwear, he notes, explaining how induction works. “The thing with magnetic induction is it gives similar performance to gas. The great thing is, you put the pot on the range and it heats up right away, and when you remove the pot from heat, it cools

very quickly. This is also a good way to go if you don’t have access to natural gas,” Ramsey says. Many models include fantastic features, such as convection bake, broil, and roast, while cook tops provide remarkable control at ultra-high or ultra-low temperatures with burners that can deliver up to 18,000 BTUs of precision. Other desirable features are warmer drawers, a secondary oven (some warming drawers can double as second ovens), bread proofing, dehydration settings for drying out fruit, and pastry settings. Another great plus on some models is a temperature probe built into the range, a fantastic tool for the holiday turkeys. With more and more outdoor kitchens being built each year in Metro Vancouver, the related equipment and accoutrements are becoming more advanced, Ramsey

says. “Outdoor kitchen are becoming very popular. Some of the units contain a rice cooker, a 15-inch deep fryer, a wok or even a steam unit,” he says. Some companies offer the tappanyaki grill (tappanyaki is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron grill), Ramsey notes, and in some of the higher-end ranges, chefs can pre-program recipes. “If you have a recipe you are making on a regular basis, you can press a button and name that recipe,” he says. “You program in how long you want it to cook for and at what temperature and one-touch will set everything for you.” Whether amateur chef or professional, whether baker or entertainer, the kitchen ranges available today allow foodies of all levels to pursue their passion with a range they love.

A photo from Carolyn Herriot’s latest book shows a Thanksgiving harvest.

Fresh veggies at home – all year ’round MAGGIE CALLOWAY Carolyn Herriot is a homeowner who is also a passionate warrior ... about organic gardening that is. Many Metro Vancouver homeowners are avid green thumbs, so when it comes to this time of year, many are

likely thinking about how they can best ‘put their gardens to bed’ for the winter. But Herriot, who wrote A Year On The Garden Path – a 52-week Organic Gardening Guide and more recently, The Zero-Mile Diet: A Year-Round Guide to Growing Organic Food, asks, “Why on earth would you put your garden to sleep when you can grow loads of fantastic vegetables through the winter?” As the publisher can’t print Herriot’s tomes fast enough, it seems this new book has hit a nerve.

It may sound funny, but it’s a great way of building up layers of organic materials without the strain of digging and tilling. “In a recession we have a fantastic opportunity to take more control of our lives,” Herriot says. “Because people don’t have much money but more time, they can save lots of money by growing their own food, especially if they save seeds as well.” Herriot notes that even people who don’t have a lot of space can fill tubs with salad and herb plants, or

ers are blessed with the ability to be at least partly self-sufficient with year-round vegetables, and in an era where there is growing concern about where food comes from and reducing carbon footprints, more Metro Vancouverites are looking at growing their own fresh food. The City of Vancouver has gone one step further, and allows homeowners – with some restrictions – to have chickens in the backyard. Herriot, who grows literally tons of food, has a food garden measuring 50x50 feet. This is a larger space than an your average condo balcony, but there ways to grow a pretty amazing amount even in that small space, she says. Herriot’s new book takes gardeners step-by-step through every month of the year, with clear instructions on what they should be doing and when.

grow tomatoes in hanging baskets and beans and peas up trellises. “My aim with this book was to make it simple, make it easy, and make it doable. I wanted readers to look around and use recycled material, like I did,” she says.

Herriot envisions an eventual reality where neighbours – in fact, entire neighbourhoods – get together and grow food year-round. Homes with mostly shade gardens could grow lettuce, peas and other shade-loving plants, for example. Homes with sunny gardens could grow tomatoes, squash, etc. Surplus food could be canned and shared. Greenhouses, which can be expensive for one family, could be financed together and shared. Herriot leaves some sections of the food garden fallow during the winter to give the soil a break, and helps build it back up by adding a mulch of aged horse manure, compost, leaves and seaweed. The rest of the garden remains productive with arugula, beets, broccoli, winter cabbage, cauliflower, chard, winter mesclun mixes, and much more. With Herriot’s help – through her books – it can be easy to become a year-round gardener, no matter how much space is available.

“Purchasing a 3D TV doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll only watch 3D programming,” says Keith Laird, director of televisions for The Brick. “(3D TVs) are the best 2D TVs you can buy ... they will, without a doubt, become the mainstream TV.” That may not happen right away, Laird says, but notes that a lot of 3D programming is already available or on its way, such as footage from the successful 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver and Whistler and the more recent FIFA World Cup. It will also be an instant hit – if it’s not already – to gamers who love their xBox, PlayStation, Nintendo Wii and other video-game players. “The biggest part of 3D will be movies and gaming. 3D

games will become very prominent when you see pieces of a car go flying by your head,” Laird says. But whether 3D TVs or the still ultrapopular flatscreen televisions (plasma, LCD/LED), Laird says the thinner, flat screens remain highly sought-after. And the TV remains king in the media room, he adds. “How large (the TV is) usually depends on the size of the room ... the TV is always the focus,” he says. Being comfortable while watching the movie or game is also important. A sales manager at a local Brick says sofas are as trendy as ever with clients, but especially in sectionals – for media rooms – whether in leather, microfibre or other materials. Sectional sofas with built-in reclining seats are often purchased for home entertainment theatres and/or media rooms; some sectionals feature three or more reclining parts that can be joined together or pulled apart as separate seating. While projectors are still available – and soon, 3D projectors – the vast range of large, flatscreen TVs that are readily available attract many customers, he says. Other technologies, such as sophisticated home speaker and intercom systems, are advancing every day.

“3D games will become very prominent when you see pieces of a car go flying by your head.” Darryl Rosenfeldt, director of ConnectPro Services – the installers and experts available through Future Shop – says some

LICENSED BONDED & INSURED

3D TVs are starting to come with WiFi access (wireless Internet capability). People can already download movies from the Internet and watch them on TV through their computer, but soon, all media will likely be able to be screened on the home’s television, Rosenfeldt says, including iTunes, photos, games and more. And, he notes, people may not have to deal with multiple remotes much longer – a

new remote controller allows homeowners to “control everything” in the home entertainment theatre, from TV and DVDs to listening to music. No matter what each homeowner chooses when renovating the home to include a media room, one thing is certain: if it’s comfy, and if the TV is impressive enough, there will always be company for the hockey game, the movie or the UFC fight.

It pays to save with Terasen

on home heating bills by keeping home space heating programmed to 20 degrees for when the family is home, and for 17 degrees when out or asleep (www.terasengas.com or 1-800663-8400 for all offers without a website or different number listed) Q Caulking: if living with fixed, single-pane windows, caulk the interior side where the sash meets the frame as well as where the trim meets the wall; for exterior doors and windows that open, use weatherstripping where the two surfaces meet

Saving energy can be as easy as turning the lights out when leaving a room. While many Canadian homeowners took advantage of the federal Home Renovation Tax Credit to upgrade and renovate their homes to be more energy-efficient, the HRTC was a one-time measure applicable only for the 2009 tax year. But it can still pay to save. Terasen Gas offers several residential rebate programs that can help encourage Metro Vancouver homeowners to update their heating systems, updates that can help lower energy costs and still keep the entire homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior space and water properly heated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers are looking for information and products to help them use energy more efficiently, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Stout, Terasen vicepresident of energy solutions and external relations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So through our three-year, $80-million Energy Efficiency and Conservation initiative, we are providing them with the tools and resources to do just that.â&#x20AC;? Such programs include: Q Switch â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Shrink: get a $1,000 rebate if they switch from oil or propane to an Energy Star natural gas heating system (offer valid until Dec. 31, 2011) Q EnerChoice fireplace: receive a $150 rebate for purchasing an EnerChoice gas fireplace

Q Water: a five-minute shower with a lowflow showerhead uses as little as 45 litres of water; a standard uses as much as 135 litres thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference of 32,850 litres a year Q Insulation: save about two per cent on water heating bills by insulating all hot water pipes, especially where they run through unheated areas, such as basements or crawl spaces

Noah (left) and Caden Jimeno play a game of chess in the warmth given by a gas fireplace and also demonstrate how to save energy by turning water off when not in use. Terasen Gas offers several residential rebate programs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as switching to an EnerChoice gas fireplace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help homeowners save money and lessen energy costs. Danielle and JeďŹ&#x20AC; Jimeno photos

(offer valid until March 31, 2011) Q Water heater: get a $50 rebate for upgrading to an efficient residential storage tank water heater that meets B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new efficiency standards (offer ends Dec. 31, 2010) Q Energy Saving Kit: for qualifying households (ideal for people on a limited budget/ fixed income) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a free kit with easy-to-install devices for conserving heat, electricity and wa-

ter, from low-flow shower heads and weather stripping to compact fluorescent light bulbs (call 1-877-446-8855 for more information) Q For builders in the City of Vancouver, Terasen is contributing toward a total incentive $3,500 available along with SolarBC and the City for the first 50 homes built with solar hot water (www.solarbc.ca) Q General savings tips: save up to 15 per cent

Using such incentives helps both homeowners and Terasen get what they want â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a more energy-efficient home, energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will help customers eliminate more than 775,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, saving a total of 15.5 million gigajoules - enough natural gas to heat approximately 155,000 homes for one year,â&#x20AC;? says Stout. Terasen Gas is committed to the sustainable and environmentally sound use of gas, Stout notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we encourage all of our customers to use energy wisely to keep costs down and to benefit the environment,â&#x20AC;? he says. Not only will the Energy Efficiency and Conservation initiative help address B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate action goals for greenhouse gas emission reduction, but residential customers will also benefit from conservation education, initiatives for affordable housing and upgrade offers for high-efficiency appliances such as furnaces, fireplaces and water heaters, Stout says.

any extra spending. “In this case, there was an old oil tank we discovered when we came across a copper line buried in the soil,” Stewart says. “We were able to get that removed safely and this was an extra cost to the client.” The Vancouver house required a lot of structural upgrades in order to make the home sound, so it was structurally re-engineered and approved to earthquake standards. In order to meet the requirements of the city, RJR had to reinforce with sheer walls and structural beams, which were masked by finished materials. On the exterior, the porch was rebuilt and enhanced, raised fascia details were applied to gables, pre-painted Hardie board siding was added, and modern materials were used to complement the period appearance of the house with stone, natural wood trim and cladding. Inside a sprinkler system was installed throughout the home, along with radiant infloor heating, true divided fibreglass windows and a high-efficiency boiler. The creative use of space includes two separate units for a total of three baths, two kitchens, and nine bedrooms. The finishes in both units are superb, with extensive use of natural wood and re-milled existing doors; both units fit naturally into the style of the home. Both suites have open-plan living, with the living room, full-size dining room and kitchen flowing naturally from one to the other. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant with the striking millwork – from the fireplace to the crown mouldings, from the baseboards to the bookcases – adding a sophisticated touch. As with any job, there were a few bumps in

the road – a huge glacier boulder was found when the house was lifted, for example, and the property line was found to be two feet off, plus the fact that RJR had to work in an incredibly tiny space when the neighbour asked that a fence be installed between the two homes prior to the start of the renovation.

This is when a client will likely be thankful they have hired an experienced contractor. Brought back from the brink with a sensitive and stunning renovation, this Vancouver home is now a delight to the homeowners and to the neighbourhood, where it now fits in like it has always belonged.

Enhance the home with a new fireplace CONTINUED FROM P.4

“A lot of people who are doing full-out renovations just want a new look,” he says. “Some homes have two or more fireplaces – they can go anywhere. In bedrooms, in the basement, living rooms, family rooms, dens, patios and ensuites.” Fireplaces Unlimited is the largest company of its kind in Metro Vancouver, Fouquette notes, and often provide fireplaces for well-known local builders working on major residential projects, both single-family detached and multi-family. The company offers a massive variety of fireplaces in all shapes and sizes, indoor and out, as well as a choice of fuel (gas, electric, wood-burning and ethanol). Often, Fireplaces Unlimited will replace an old, wood-burning fireplace with a new gas or electric one, Fouquette says, and adds that while gas is always a popular option with homeoweners, electric fireplaces are in demand in multi-family developments. As for the look, fireplaces can be contemporary and chic or traditional and classic, square or rectangular or vertical or even circular (some outdoor firepits). Hearths and surrounds come in natural spa stone, limestone, granite, concrete, steel, travertine, glass, tile and crystal, among other options. Inside, instead of fake wood or stones among the flames, homeowners can choose to accentuate the blaze with everything from large, clear beads to small, sparkly black beads to crushed river rock. Some fireplaces even

feature beads or rock inside that turn different colours; homeowners can pre-set the colour scheme how they want it. Fouquette says that flush, or clean-face fireplaces are currently trendy with homeowners, likely because of their smooth, streamlined look. Another kind of fireplace offers homeowners indoor and outdoor choices with a twist: the fire is mobile. Ranging in size from table-top, glass-enclosed flames to mid-size to full-size fires, the fire burns without smoke or smell, and uses Fanola, an EcoLogo-approved liquid based on ethanol. These kinds of portable fires are popular with condo owners and also, at events such as wedding receptions or fundraisers, where the table-top fires can be moved inside to out, and vice versa, says Fouquette.

HEAT IT UP AT HOME

Fireplaces Unlimited offers several local products to comsumers as well, a factor that may sway those concerned with a sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyle. Ditto at Dynasty Fireplaces in Richmond, where the focus is soley on electric fireplaces. Electric fireplaces also come in all kinds of looks, shapes and sizes, from modern and sleek to old-fashioned and antique. While electric fireplaces generally don’t give as much heat as wood-burning or gas fireplaces, they can still heat a room quite fast, notes Dynasty Fireplaces store manager Helen Lu. And if homeowners want the look of the fire without the heat, they can turn the heat option off in order to enjoy the flickering flames. “(Homeowners) like the look, mostly, but they buy it to use for a real fireplace,” Lu says. “People who don’t have a lot of space like them a lot ... they like them for outdoor use too.”

Currently, clients are drawn to several different styles of wall unit products, which can easily be hung on a wall anywhere in the house. Slim and elegant, many wall unit styles look more like flatscreen TVs than fireplaces; others look similar to beautifully framed photos of fire. Old wood-burning stoves can also be turned into electric units, and customers still have a lot of choice among free-standing units, as well as large, full-size fireplaces with surrounds in limestone, travertine, granite, marble and more. From simple and unadorned to detailed and intricate, clients can choose exactly the fireplace they want to complement their home. Fireplaces have travelled the gamut over the centuries, evolving from an absolute necessity to a stylish home accessory, and today’s homeowners are taking advantage of the range of choices available.
