Rare funnel cloud sighted Weather phenomena unusual because ‘we’re cold and soggy’, UBC prof says
Mounties seek missing money destined for food bank by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Didn’t see Saturday afternoon’s funnel cloud swirling in the skies above Richmond? You’ll get a second chance thanks to some YouTube footage that was uploaded on Sunday. A local resident captured nearly a minute’s worth of videotaped footage of the cloud, which can be seen changing shape, contracting and then lengthening against a mixed bag of weather that saw sun, hail, and even snow in parts of the Lower Mainland. The footage is available at: http://tinyurl.com/ Richmondfunnelcloud. Philip Austin, associate professor at University of B.C.’s atmospheric science program, said funnel clouds are rare in the type of environmental conditions that we have in the Lower Mainland. You need a lot of energy to get a funnel cloud to form, Austin said, such as in Oklahoma, where there’s plenty of warm, humid air and massive thunderstorms. For the same reason we don’t have big thunderstorms, there’s just not a lot

of atmospheric energy in the Lower Mainland, he said. “Here, we’re cold and soggy.” Austin described a funnel cloud as an engine that turns rising air into spinning air. For one to form, there has to be a mix of air from different regions, with cold air that’s aloft and warm air down below, which makes for an unstable condition as the cold air wants to go down, and the warm air wants to rise, he explained. “Once they get going, they actually are able to maintain themselves.”
But Saturday’s funnel cloud didn’t last for long, an indication it had used up its energy, Austin said. “Here we don’t have enough surplus energy to create more than one of these things.” And for a funnel cloud to touch the ocean’s surface, or touch the ground, Austin said you’d need an atmosphere where there was surplus energy all the way to the ground. With such a large body of cold water off Steveston, which soaks up energy, conditions for a funnel cloud are unusual.
“Here we don’t have enough surplus energy to create more than one of these things.” - Philip Austin
The alleged disappearance of thousands of dollars collected from B.C. Lottery Corporation employees and earmarked for four impoverished local families as part of a Christmas charity drive in 2009 has Richmond Mounties investigating. According to a search warrant application obtained by The Richmond Review, local police have still not completed their investigation which was launched in October of 2010. No charges have yet been laid, according to the Richmond RCMP. The money’s disappearance occurred at the former Shellbridge Way head office of the lottery corporation, which has since relocated from Richmond to Vancouver. When four cheques were returned for insufficient funds, it was discovered that some $2,561.08 was not accounted for from the 2009 charity drive, which collected money through 50/50 ticket sales, coin drives, cash donations, basket sales, silent auctions and food and plant sales. Five employees were mainly responsible for the charity effort, which was a year-long endeavour. The investigation has focused in on one of those employees who had signing authority for the bank account where the raised money was kept. When efforts were made to obtain receipts for the charity drive, one of the employees remained evasive and claimed the receipts were lost as a result of a car accident. The goal of the fundraising effort was to raise money to buy gifts for four pre-selected impoverished families, with the remaining money going to the local food bank. After the missing funds were confirmed by an internal audit, the lottery corporation dispatched its own security investigator, Larry Nahorniak, to look into matters. He contacted the Richmond Food Bank’s manager, Judy Sun, who confirmed that the food bank hadn’t received any donations from the lottery corporation since December 2007. The staff’s fundraising efforts raised $6,463.55, with about $2,000 spent on gifts for the four families, leaving more than $4,000 to be donated to the food bank, the search warrant states.

Capstan Way development is back on the rails Developers show willingness to pay for new Canada Line station
Capstan Village proposals •Concord Pacific: 3 hectares (7.6 acres) along Patterson Road, between Sexsmith Road and Garden City Road; series of high-rise apartments; 1,164 market residential units, 61 affordable housing units; 20 artist residences/studios •Pinnacle International: 0.7 hectares (1.7 acres) at northwest corner of Sexsmith Road and Capstan Way; development to be anchored by a 14-storey high-rise; 187 market residential units, 13 affordable housing units
by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A largely-vacant City Centre neighbourhood long eyed for redevelopment is now the subject of two rezoning applications proposing to build nearly half the 3,250 homes expected in the area. Contingent on approval is the developers’ willingness to foot the entire bill for a $25-million Canada Line station at Capstan Way. And the major players— Concord Paciﬁc and Pinnacle International—appear set to ante up to realize a neighbourhood of high-rises from No. 3 Road to Garden City Road, and Capstan Way to Sea Island Way. Proposals have come and gone for the area, the last failing due to a disagreement between the developers and the city. But the latest plan, the fourth since the late ‘90s, appears genuine. Already, Concord Pacific has nearly ﬁnished a highend presentation centre at the corner of No. 3 Road and Capstan Way. Concord is proposing to build a series of high-rises—stretching as high as 15 storeys—to accommodate 1,245 condominiums over three hectares (7.6 acres). Of those, 61 would be lowend market rental housing and 20 would be low-end market rental studio units for artists. Pinnacle International is seeking approval for a smaller project—200 units

anchored by a 14-storey highrise—as its ﬁrst phase of a 1,700-home vision. Concord dubs its project Concord Gateway; Pinnacle has named its Pinnacle Centre. The city calls it Capstan Village—a high-density neighbourhood to be built on old single-family lots where pedestrians are king. Once the new Canada Line station is built, the city will drop its parking requirements to the lowest level, at one space per home. This, according to a city staff report, is to “encourage reduced car dependence as per village centres elsewhere along the Canada Line.”
But the station won’t be built immediately. Staff say most residents will be within a 10-minute walk to Aberdeen Station, but a “disconnected road network and lack of sidewalks and pedestrian amenities” may turn people off from the hike. So developers will be required to create interim parking plans. Developers of the area’s ﬁrst 3,250 residential units will pay a portion of the station’s cost to the city at the time building permits are issued. For their part, developers get a density bonus, which allows more homes than usual to be built on the land.
“Once we reach (that goal), we’ll have enough money. We hand it over to Translink and say go build your station, and any subsequent development doesn’t have to pay that fee,” said Ted Townsend, city spokesperson, noting the housing market will ultimately determine the station’s timeline. City council’s planning committee heard details of the two projects at a meeting Tuesday, and more reports are expected. According to city hall’s planning department, more than 2,000 new homes are already undergoing rezoning review in the area. Senior planner Suzanne Carter-Huffman described Pinnacle’s vision in a report Tuesday as “distinctive,” boasting “mid-rise streetwall form, varied building heights, pedestrian-oriented streetscapes and publicly accessible open space [that] will complement the establishment of Capstan Village as a high-amenity, transit-oriented, urban community.”
Treasurer who stole from youth soccer gets 2 years Debbie Judd to pay restitution by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The former chair and treasurer of the Richmond Youth Soccer Association has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing more than $200,000 from the association between 1998 and 2003. Richmond provincial court Judge Patrick Chen sentenced Debbie Judd to jail, and said the “scale and character of the breach of trust” was more serious than in cases where employees defraud their employers. After being sentenced, a sullen and shocked-looking Judd turned to look at her teenage son—who sat stone faced at the front of the gallery—for a couple of seconds before being escorted by a courtroom sheriff into custody. Judd’s lawyer, Leslie Mackoff sought a conditional sentence to be served in the community, and in his submissions noted case law in which similar thefts were handled with non-prison terms. But Chen made it clear early on in reading his decision Monday morning that Judd was getting a jail sentence. The victims of the theft were the volunteer organizers of the soccer association who were “more vulnerable,” Chen said. And what made this case more aggravating was the level of trust Judd had earned in the organization, as both an elected chair and treasurer. In arguing for a conditional sentence, Judd and her lawyer had proposed that she pay a quarter of her salary until retirement, to the association as compensation, which would amount to $156,000. It was noted that Judd had no previous criminal record, that many people wrote letters of support for her, and that she had a seven-year-old son who would also be impacted by a jail sentence. And although she initially “obfuscated” when approached, she entered a guilty plea early on in the proceedings, and she did express remorse, Judge Chen noted. But Judd’s lawyer said her actions have tarnished the family’s reputation in the sports community, and her children were the victim of aspersions on the soccer pitch. Judd’s husband’s professional soccer coaching career was derailed as well to the point he had to declare bankruptcy. “The sins of the parents were visited upon the children,” Mackoff said during an earlier sentencing hearing. But Chen said the sentencing principles of denunciation and deterrence were more serious than the other cases cited by Judd’s lawyer. In her role at the soccer association, Judd was responsible for collection and payments and wrote annual ﬁnancial statements for the association. Judd was able to secure co-signatures on blank cheques that she ﬁlled out with false information. Chen noted that “planning and manipulation” were involved in the deception, and that Judd stopped “only when she was found out.” He said “the entire sports community of Richmond was victimized,” and that her actions were “a serious breach of trust.” Chen ordered her to pay $204,070 in restitution.
Enter our Hockey Day in Canada contest
City hall hosts film crews Crews behind an American TV series transformed Richmond City Hall into a San Francisco police station last Thursday. Filming for Fairly Legal—an hour-long drama series in its second season on the USA Network—began early Friday and continued into the late evening, said city spokesperson Kim Decker. The series follows a woman who, frustrated with the legal system, quits her job as a lawyer to work as a mediator at the law ﬁrm started by her late father. On Friday, dozens of actors dressed as San Francisco cops roamed the galleria, which was ﬁt with American ﬂags. Filming also took place in city hall’s parking lot. The show stars Sarah Shahi, Michael Trucco, Virginia Williams and Baron Vaughn. Decker said producers also used Richmond to shoot scenes in November: on Steveston Harbour Authority land and at a private residence. Season 2 of Fairly Legal premieres March 16. —by Matthew Hoekstra

Tow truck driver loses leg after pinned by car on icy highway Rusty’s driver was recovering a car in the ditch by Highway 91 by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A veteran driver from Rusty’s Auto Towing was seriously injured Sunday morning after he’d just recovered a vehicle that had skidded on icy and snowy highway conditions into a ditch. According to Deas Island RCMP, police were called around 9:15 a.m. to a stretch of the East West connector just west of the Knight Street on-ramp to the westbound lanes of Highway 91. The driver was pinned between the car that lost control on the onramp, and the tow truck, according to one of his coworkers at Rusty’s Auto Towing. The 51-year-old victim, a single man from Surrey, was a “well experienced” tow truck driver who’d

been working for Rusty’s for about four years. One of the victim’s legs had to be amputated, and his other leg was also in bad shape, but doctors remained hopeful they might be able to save it. “We’re concentrating on getting him better,” said Gary Tonks, president of Rusty’s. Tonks said he learned of the accident around 10 a.m. Sunday, and rushed to the ofﬁce to support his staff who were “horriﬁed” by the accident. Tonks said his employee doesn’t have any local family. Asked what can be done to assist his employee, Tonks said: “I know we’re all thinking the same thing.” The victim was transported to Vancouver General Hospital by ambulance where he was sedated

and then scheduled for surgery on Sunday. The driver of the other vehicle— an older model Pontiac Sunﬁre— that struck the tow truck driver remained at the scene and was cooperative with police. Investigators believe icy road conditions were mainly to blame, and police are considering charges. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call the Deas Island RCMP at 604-946-2184 and ask for either Const. Tarmii Miskiw or Cpl. Peter Somerville. Police cautioned drivers that when it snows, they need to slow down and leave a lot of room between vehicles. As well, the law requires that when an emergency vehicle is at the side of the road, drivers are required to slow down and move over. Tonks noted that aside from having ﬂashing lights, his employee’s tow truck had a bright arrow board on its roof, making it much easier for passersby to see. Police are investigating whether the Sunﬁre’s tires were bald, Tonks said.

City Board Steveston’s No. 1 Road and Moncton Street intersection How the new pedestrian “scramble” crosswalk works The City has recently upgraded the No. 1 Road and Moncton intersection. The features of the new intersection will enhance road safety for all users. • Exclusive pedestrian-only crossing phase that stops all vehicle movements and allows pedestrians to cross the intersection, including diagonally (pedestrian scramble) • No vehicle right-turns on red lights • Raised intersection (pedestrian and roadway ground plane at same level) for improved accessibility • Special artistic pavement design and bollards (log posts) at intersection corners In addition, the City has upgraded other Steveston Village intersections and reduced the speed limit to 30 km/hour throughout Steveston Village. How to activate the scramble feature of the intersection The intersection has both traditional crosswalk buttons/signs and a new button/sign to activate the scramble feature: Press the button below the new “Press for Priority Crossing” sign. The “walk/don’t walk” indicators for pedestrians are located diagonally across from each intersection corner. A timer below these “walk/don’t walk” signs counts down the seconds remaining for pedestrian crossing (watch for a “flashing hand”). The same pedestrian crossing regulations apply as at other intersections.

Pedestrian signal indications consist of “Walking Person” and “Hand” symbols. Please remember that you can step off the sidewalk to start crossing to the other side only when the “Walking Person” light is on. When the “Flashing Hand” light appears: • If already in the crosswalk, complete your crossing to the other side at a normal pace; or • If not already in the crosswalk, do not start to cross the street – push the button and wait for the next walk light • If you step off the curb and begin crossing just as the “Hand” starts flashing, there is adequate time to finish crossing. If you start crossing after the “Hand” indication starts flashing, there may not be adequate time to cross safely. When the “Solid Hand” light is displayed do not enter the crosswalk. Wait for the next “Walking Person” light. For more information on traffic signals, visit www.richmond.ca > City Services > Transportation, Traffic & Parking > Traffic Signals.

City staff are backing a bid from Lulu Island Winery to add a restaurant to its farm-based business—provided it isn’t used as a banquet hall. If city council agrees, the winery must then seek approval from the Agricultural Land Commission. Built in 2009 at 16880 Westminster Hwy. in East Richmond, Lulu Island Winery already has the space capable of hosting a 3,542-square-foot restaurant and outdoor patio. That year, the winery drew the ire of the city’s agricultural advisory committee for hosting functions committee members said were beyond allowable uses in the Agricultural Land

Reserve. That prompted politicians to wonder whether it was built with adequate scrutiny. That’s why city staff are also suggesting the Agricultural Land Commission require registration of a legal agreement on title that prohibits the use of the winery as a banquet hall or “event hosting venue.” Staff are also suggesting council regulate the size of future wineries. A bylaw amendment presented Tuesday would limit future wineries to 10,764 square feet—including processing, storage and retail areas.
Existing wineries, such as the 22,260-square-foot Lulu Island Winery, would be grandfathered. “This allows the city and farming community to have a ﬁrm regulation to prevent large-scale industrial wineries that obtain all of their farm product from off-site and potentially outside of Richmond,” said Mark McMullen, senior co-ordinator of major projects for the city, in a report Tuesday. “Such wineries should be located on industrialzoned lands.” The size limit would also prevent wineries from

EDITORIAL: With justice ﬁnally served, time for soccer community to move on
hen Debbie Judd robbed local children of their enjoyment of soccer, it was a conscious, planned and deliberate act that warranted a punishment as serious as the impact it had on the sports community.
On Monday, justice was ﬁnally served up in the form of a two-year federal prison sentence and an order to pay $204,070 in restitution. Although the ordeal took nine years to reach a conclusion in the
criminal courts, another form of vigilante justice has been meted out continuously over the years. From having her children become the target of aspersions on the pitch, to having her husband’s professional soccer coaching career derailed, there was plenty of tragic collateral damage. Those in the soccer community were doubtless outraged, and rightly so. But anger and hate begets only more anger and hate. Some well-connected members of the soccer community evidently did their best to make sure every-
body in their social and professional circles knew about Judd’s actions, and that anger resulted in collateral damage to those who didn’t break the law. So ostracized have they been that an offer for Judd’s husband to coach soccer professionally in Europe was removed when that team’s ofﬁcials heard of her actions. But now that the courts have spoken, and justice has been delivered, the local soccer ofﬁcials need to move on. Much of the anger was misdi-
rected at the family. The sins of the mother and the wife should not have been visited upon the children and husband. This woman will serve her time behind bars and pay her dues to society. And when she returns to work, she’ll have a hefty $200,000-plus debt hovering over her. Hopefully this ends a dark chapter in local soccer history, and the Judd family can move on, the healing can start for all parties, and the bitterness and resentment quickly fades away.
Enbridge oil pipeline won’t happen
B.C. Views Tom Fletcher
fter following the opening phase of the National Energy Board’s hearings on the Northern Gateway oil pipeline proposal, I have a prediction. B.C. will never see this pipeline. And that’s probably the best outcome. The ﬁrst reason is the nearly unanimous opposition of informed Kitimat-area residents, led by Haisla Nation Chief Councillor Ellis Ross and skilled local volunteers who described the marine environment of the Kitimat estuary. There was speculation that Ross, who was just appointed to chair Premier Christy Clark’s new Aboriginal Business and Investment Council, might bend on the oil proposal. His testimony put that notion to rest. The Haisla, Haida, Gitga’at and other members of the Coastal First Nations group put their marker down on managed logging and eco-tourism years before this pipeline debate heated up. California do-gooders may have coined the term “Great Bear Rainforest,” but make no mistake, these tribes run the place. Moving inland, the
B.C.’s likeliest alternative for oilsands crude is the existing Trans Mountain pipeline, which has been pumping Alberta oil and reﬁned products to the West Coast at Burrard Inlet for nearly 60 years.
Northern Gateway pipeline route is a tangle of dozens of asserted traditional territories, some in the century-old Treaty 8 zone and others with no legal settlement. Our courts will require at least another generation of millionaire lawyers to untangle the territorial claims involved, no matter what the B.C., Canadian or Chinese governments may wish to do with this oil. The Haisla have embraced liqueﬁed natural gas ships, plants and pipelines, which may be all the industrial development the region can handle. Condensate can continue to be shipped into Kitimat by tankers and sent by railcar to Alberta to dilute bitumen. Which brings me to the alternatives to Northern Gateway. CP Rail just announced a major investment in its U.S. main line south of Saskatchewan, to transport crude oil from the Bakken Formation, an emerging
source of shale oil and gas under Saskatchewan, Alberta and North Dakota. CP shipments out of North Dakota went from 500 carloads in 2009 to more than 13,000 carloads in 2011. The new target is 70,000. B.C.’s likeliest alternative for oilsands crude is the existing Trans Mountain pipeline, which has been pumping Alberta oil and reﬁned products to the West Coast at Burrard Inlet for nearly 60 years. Port Moody’s Ioco reﬁnery is gone, but Chevron’s Burnaby plant remains, and some crude goes out by tanker or pipeline to reﬁneries south of B.C. The current owner of Trans Mountain, Kinder Morgan Canada, is naturally watching the Enbridge battle closely. A Kinder Morgan representative provided the following information about tanker trafﬁc from their Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby.
The Haisla, Haida, Gitga’at and other members of the Coastal First Nations group put their marker down on managed logging and eco-tourism years before this pipeline debate heated up.
In 2011 there were 32 tankers loaded at Westridge, down from 69 in 2010. Demand varies widely (there were no tankers in 2000) and current trafﬁc is similar to what went out of Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, there is not yet a major surge to Asia. For every 10 ships that load at Westridge, on average eight sail to California, one
to U.S. Gulf Coast reﬁneries, and only one to Asia. Current Port Metro Vancouver rules allow Aframax-class tankers (80,000 to 119,000 dead weight tons) to pass under the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges, but they can’t take on a full load. That would require dredging in Second Narrows, which would increase general shipping safety as well as capacity. Kinder Morgan has not yet formally applied to twin the Trans Mountain line. If it does expand its priceless right of way, the capacity would be greater than the Enbridge proposal. One way or another, that oil will move. The professional environmentalist gong show over Enbridge is still to come. More on that next week.

letters The rise of the affluent ghost town owners of these perpetually empty pseudo-mansions have no interest in contributing to the workings or welfare of the community. They are, however, responsible for creating an entirely new concept in community/town planning: the afﬂuent ghost town. The perception that low wages are the reason young families cannot afford to buy houses in Richmond is shallow and insulting. My son and his partner, both with extensive post-secondary educations, bring in healthy professional level wages and they cannot afford to buy a detached house in Richmond. The townhouse they could afford has become too small to contain a two-children family and the complex they live in is ﬁlled with young families that are struggling with the probability that they will have to move far aﬁeld and abandon their lives in Richmond if they are ever to have a detached house to call home. On our street, modest split level homes are being replaced by monsters that block out the sun, cause the cutting down of countless mature trees, and raise the taxes of the remaining home owners to

obscene levels. Older residents like us, who have lived and invested in our community for many years and do not want to sell out or move, are being literally bullied into making difﬁcult decisions by builders and contractors who are rabidly exploiting ineffective, preferential, and inadequately policed building codes and bylaws. And did I mention the large number of empty houses? Like most politically loaded terms, “affordable housing” is most deﬁnitely relative and ambiguous. The $1.5-million houses that are taking over our street are obviously affordable to a particular demographic, but when that demographic becomes the only one represented, then you end up without the diversity (cultural, economic, and architectural), that makes a community attractive, inclusive, vital, livable, and enriched. The British have a saying: “I’m allright Jack!” In its most polite interpretation in means “I have mine and to hell with the rest of you!” There is an unpleasant whiff of that sentiment in Mr. Godin’s comments. Ray Arnold Richmond
Editor: Re: “The real problem with housing affordability,” Letters, Jan. 11. Victor Godin’s response to your editorial about housing affordability in Richmond is selective and essentially superﬁcial in its analysis of situations in our community. For one thing it fails to account for the huge number of out-of-scale houses, perhaps 50 per cent or more of the newly-constructed ones, that sit empty, sometimes for years. These houses (they cannot be rightly called homes) are not owned by “newcomers” (a term which implies immigration, settlement, and assimilation), but by citizens in other countries looking to ﬁnd shelter for their wealth and make a proﬁt. These empty ediﬁces contribute to the devolution of neighbourhoods—lifeless, dark ediﬁces that contribute absolutely nothing to the vitality and life of the neighbourhood. They bring no children to play, no neighbours to interact with and get to know, no gardens or greenery to add beauty, and their property footprint is unnecessarily excessive and obnoxious. The

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and Itâ€™s Happening Right Here in Richmond! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER
ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now itâ€™s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.
Hereâ€™s How It Works: Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot â€“ it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If yourâ€™re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

Trojans win hoop thriller Hugh Boyd edges host Sharks at Bob Carkner Memorial Basketball Classic by Don Fennell Sports Editor
Don Fennell photo Tiernan Docherty earned MVP honours in leading the Hugh Boyd Trojans to the boys’ title Saturday at the Bob Carkner Memorial Basketball Classic, hosted by Steveston-London Sharks. More photos at richmondreview.com.
The Hugh Boyd Trojans obviously like playing at Steveston-London Secondary, and in particular in the Bob Carkner Memorial Basketball Classic. But while they’ve won the annual tournament three years in a row, Saturday’s 76-75 victory over the host Sharks in the boys’ ﬁnal was particularly satisfying as the Trojans overcame a 17-point halftime deﬁcit. Grade 12 guard Justin Giorno secured the win by nailing a jump shot from the top of the key just as time expired, sending a large Trojan faithful into jubilation. Hugh Boyd coach Bob Boisvert exempliﬁed the Trojan euphoria, leaping from his chair and pumping his ﬁst in celebration. Steveston-London coach Mike Stoneburgh and the Sharks faithful could only applaud the Trojans’ dog-
gedness. “All everyone kept saying was what a great game it was,” said Stoneburgh. “Bob said it was probably the greatest game he’s ever been involved in, and in my 11 years coaching I’d have to agree.” The tournament is named in memory of Bob Carkner, a educator and leader who
served as principal at both London, Steveston and Hugh Boyd secondaries. He passed away in 2009. Defeating the Trojans 5956 in league play Jan. 5, the Sharks seemed to be well on their way to a second straight win Saturday when the wheels fell off. Starting guard Kingston Chung fouled out in the third quar-
ter. While back-up Deion Adaza did a commendable job, he wasn’t able to calm down his teammates as Chung is able to. “With most of their team being football players, (Boyd) is a strong team physically and they took it to us,” said Stoneburgh.
“We tried to put out a bigger lineup to match that, but we kept forgetting to close out and make their shots difﬁcult so we had to go back to a smaller lineup. While we were better on offence, that hurt us defensively.” See Page 16

Mattu nets 45 points playing with a fractured nose •Even with most of its players participating in the Centennial Centaurs’ Top-10 tournament in Coquitlam (ﬁnishing second to Brookswood), Port Coquitlam’s Riverside Rapids were still able to win the Carkner Classic for the second year in a row. The No. 1-ranked AAA girls’ basketball team in the province, the Rapids used a lineup of bench players and juniors to outscore the Terry Fox Ravens 59-50 in Saturday’s championship game. Vanessa Gee, a Rapids’ junior, earned tournament MVP honours. Host Steveston-London
Sharks outscored a tough Burnaby South Rebels 64-58 to ﬁnish third after losing to Terry Fox. Hamaguchi expected a tough game against Burnaby South. “We got some key baskets, played smart down the stretch and got some good rebounds.” Mattu, the Sharks’ dynamic point guard, scored a game-high 45 points despite playing with a fracture nose suffered she injured against John Oliver.

Don Fennell photo Playing with her usual determination despite a fractured nose, Steveston-London guard Anmol Mattu scored 45 points against the Burnaby South Rebels Saturday.
From Page 15 While the loss was hard for the Sharks to accept, Stoneburgh said it was a good lesson. “We would have loved to win that game, but it was a reminder to us that no lead is a safe lead. I told the boys afterwards it’s why you have to play a full game.” While the Sharks held tournament MVP Tiernan Docherty to eight points in the ﬁnal, Connor Grams stepped up to pace Hugh Boyd with 35 points, which included seven threes. Carlos Prada had 28 points for Steveston-London.

Ravens silence Bulldogs twice to win MacNeill basketball tourney by Don Fennell Sports Editor A.R. MacNeill Ravens won their own 12-team high school junior boysâ€™ basketball tournament Saturday, outscoring Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs by 14 points in the ďŹ nal. MacNeill also won the ďŹ rst matchup between the teams Friday 47-40, and in the championship game took advantage of Churchill having to play three games in a row after advancing through the loserâ€™s bracket. MacNeill was led by tournament MVP Nathan Tomas, while teammates Chris Tsang and Matt Sim were
selected to the all-star team along with R.A. McMathâ€™s Thadeus Melaku and R.C. Palmerâ€™s Antonio Jhuty. MacNeill coach Steward Siy was naturally happy with the Ravensâ€™ success, but also the experience they gained from playing in a tournament that featured several good teams including the West Vancouver Highlanders, New Westminster Hyacks, Dr. Charles Best and Port Moody Blues. In Thursdayâ€™s opening-round action, Palmer beat North Delta Huskies before facing New Westminster Hyacks in the second round. Palmer overcame a big first-half

UNLEASH THE NEW YOU.
s the new year is getting underway, it’s somewhat fitting that shops are also beginning to get their spring collections in. The beginning of the year has always been an ideal time to start fresh and set new goals to improve your life. And there’s just something about the spring season that reminds us to blossom and reinvent our look. In keeping with the theme of resolutions, I’ve come up with a few suggestions for fashion and beauty goals to ensure you’ll be looking your best for 2012. If you’re going to spend, splurge on classic pieces and save on the trendier items. Apparel such as peacoats, beige trench coats, black pants and white button-ups are basics and never go out of style. Invest in high quality, timeless pieces that can handle frequent wear and are cut in a simple style that will flatter your figure for years to come. Also, this time of year is great for coat shopping, as most stores will be having sales in order to get rid of their winter stock to make room for spring arrivals. For trendier items you’ll only wear for one season, shop at less pricey stores. It’ll save more and help reduce buyer’s remorse — it’s never pleasant to realize you paid too much for that tribal print maxi dress only worn twice. Perfect the art of layering. Not only is it a
good way to make your look unique, layering is completely practical for our climate. You don’t want to overdo it and end up bulky or looking like you’ve included multiple styles into one outfit. The trick is to take into consideration colour, texture and proportion. Pair silks and satins with thicker fabrics like cottons or wools. Think about lengths: long, simpler tops underneath shorter, more elaborate pieces. One of my favourite go-to office looks is Experiment wearing a button-up with different underneath a cardigan textures and so the shirttail and cuffs layers like at peek out, layered with Marc Jacobs. a variety of necklaces.

A combination layering techniques will of layering and become effortless in Tangerine Tango no time. presented at Jean Experiment more Paul Gaultier. with colour this Photo from: thefashionspot.com year. Pastels are going to be hot next season — they’ve been spotted on most of the spring collection runways from Milan to New York — so now’s a good time to play around with different shades to see which complement you best. If muted colours aren’t your thing, incorporate some red-orange pieces into your closet. Pantone revealed that the colour of the year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, a vibrant shade that works for clothing and cosmetics. The colourblocking trend that was all the rage last year is continuing strong into this year too, so expect to see bold
contrasts of colour in one ensemble. Go outside your comfort zone. It’s easier to rely on old standbys, but make it a goal to frequently change up your usual outfits or makeup look. If the majority of your wardrobe is solid colours, add some prints. Are you usually a jeans and a t-shirt gal? Then switch out your denim for a skirt or dress. If you don’t think you can pull off a particular trend, test it out for a day — you just might be surprised when the compliments start rolling in. Add more accessories into your daily look. I know I’ve fallen victim to applying the same makeup every day, so my main resolution this year is to experiment with different eyeshadows. Fashion gives us the opportunity to express ourselves, so have fun with it this year and try new looks.

he Richmond Ice Centre Food Bank Drive’s week of fundraising was kicked off with a showing of Diary
Nearly 100 people from Seafair Minor Hockey Association, Richmond Minor Hockey Association, Richmond Ravens and Richmond Ringette came together to enjoy the movie and support the cause. The annual fundraising initiative was started by Seafair to collect donations for the Richmond Food Bank three years ago. “I thought it would
be good for the hockey players from Seafair to give back to the community,” said Ken Hamaguchi, Seafair’s executive director. “Our kids are very fortunate and this is a way for kids to give back,” he said. Around 100 teams are collecting food and cash donations this week to donate along with the money raised at the movie. “The little kids really, really go to town on this,” Hamaguchi said. The team that collects
the most from each association will win a pizza party donated by Boston Pizza at Ironwood. Volunteers will be at Richmond Ice Centre from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday collecting donations. “I’d love to see $6,000-$7,000 cash and the same amount of food,” Hamaguchi said.
