Potty for poinsettias Frosty the Snowman may have met a sad fate in a greenhouse filled with Christmas poinsettias, but the city’s greenhouse is a happy place to be at this time of year. City staff has been carefully tending to hundreds of poinsettias that will soon be providing a festive feel to city facilities. “The poinsettias are gorgeous,” said Claude LeDoux, the city’s manager of horticulture services. “We buy cuttings. We grow them into a full size plant.” In the coming days, about 700 poinsettias will be shipped to locations around the city, including Century House. “There is red, pink and white. We use them for our displays throughout the city,” LeDoux said. “It is refreshing to see them.” The poinsettias aren’t the only plants currently found in the city’s greenhouses in Queen’s Park, as staff are already hard at work getting plants ready for next spring’s hanging baskets and gardens. – By Theresa McManus, staff reporter

Festive feeling: Miodrag Petkovic, a grower at the Queen’s Park greenhouse, stands among the poinsettias the city has been tending. In the coming days, about 700 poinsettias will be shipped to locations around New Westminster to lend seasonal colour to city facilities. The plants have been grown from cuttings.
Grant process too onerous for city groups BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A program that’s supposed to help local organizations proved to be a big headache. New Westminster city council has expressed concern about the new requirements for organizations seeking 2014 grants from the city. The city currently offers amateur sports, childcare, environmental, city partnership, arts and cultural, community and heritage grants. Coun. Betty McIntosh said some grant applicants were “distressed” with this
year’s process, as some grants required 15 pages of paperwork to be competed. She noted that many organizations rely on volunteers, who don’t have the capacity to sit and spend a weekend completing a grant application. “We discouraged people this year from even applying. That is not our intent,” she said. “We need to simplify our procedures.” One of the grant applicants said the time required to properly complete a 15page document for a possible $1,000 was hard to justify. Gary Holowatiuk, the city’s director of

finance and information technology, said staff understand there are concerns with this year’s grant application forms and will be addressing those concerns in time for the 2015 grant process. “This has to be simplified,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “We have had many, many calls from people who could not understand it.” Coun. Bill Harper wants the city to take steps to ensure the complex requirements of this year’s grant process didn’t deter any previous applicants from applying. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy said the requirements created an impediment to small

organizations that rely on small grants. He said the goal of the grant program is to help organizations, not put up obstacles. “I have a very serious problem with what happened here,” he said. Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation, said the expanded applications caused a lot of discussion and debate in the community. “There were mixed reviews,” he said. Despite the concerns, Gibson noted that the city received more applications than in prior years. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr said there’s a

Capturing the good old days
ow long has it been since we’ve seen a garter snake, writer Evelyn Sangster Benson asks in her recently published book on days past in New Westminster. In a story called Encroaching Urbanization – about how the development of the city has diminished once-plentiful bushlands and wildlife in the city – Benson recalls an amusing story about the slippery species. “These harmless snakes were so plentiful in the 1940s that Buddy Greenall from Fifth Street collected a whole bagful of the slithery creatures and let them loose NIKI HOPE in the hallway at Spencer school one warm spring day,” Benson writes. “You never heard such screaming.” Benson’s book, A Century in a Small Town: One Family’s Stories, chronicles her pioneer brood’s story of life in the Royal City from 1895 to 1993. At the centre of the work – a collection of tales that were shared orally through the generations – is the city that Benson has called home her entire life. “I’m 80 years old, so I’ve lived a long time,” Benson laughs, explaining why she finally wrote down the stories she’s told for years. “I grew up in a family that talked. You know, some people don’t talk. We talked a lot.” Benson worked as a substitute teacher at New Westminster Secondary School for 27 years, and she often had classes where the

teacher had neglected to leave anything for her to do with the students. “So I would often talk to the kids. They’re teenagers, and you’ve got to keep them busy for 45 minutes, so I’d just start talking, and I’d say to them, ‘Well, how do you like going to a school that’s right on top of a graveyard?’ Well, the eyes opened up … and I got their attention,” she recalls, chuckling. The old cemetery is covered in the book under the piece titled Little Devils in the Graveyard. Benson writes about how her father, Lewie Sangster (who grew up to be mayor of the city) and her uncle George Sangster, used to tell young Evelyn about the “Chinese cemetery.” “Kids in those days made their own fun, and most parents were blissfully unaware of what their children were up to. When word went out on the kids’ grapevine that a Chinese funeral was imminent, young boys from all over town headed to Chinatown at the foot of Royal Avenue to enjoy the spectacle and follow the procession,” she writes. There would be a colourful funeral procession with musicians leading the way up the hill “amid exploding strings of firecrackers intended to frighten away evil spirits.” “Once the burial ceremony was over, the mounded grave was heaped with cherished possessions of the deceased and a ‘feast’ to appease the spirits – bowls of rice and vegetables, and sometimes even a small roasted pig,” Benson writes, adding that her dad and his friends would hide out at a safe distance

until the mourners departed and then gather at the graveside to devour the feast, hence the “little devils” title. “I’m sure my grandfather, Alexander Sangster, a deacon at the Baptist Church, would have taken a dim view of such disrespect for the dead and marched the boys to the woodshed, if he had known,” she writes. There are countless accounts of life through the years of the Sangster/Appleton/Benson clans. One funny anecdote is the story of a time when young Lewie, his brothers and pals bumped into infamous train robber Billy Miner in 1907. The boys were skinny-dipping in a creek near the old penitentiary ravine. Two men came climbing down the hill from the penitentiary, Benson says. The boys realized it was Billy Miner because every kid in town had seen him arrive by train in the city. “They all went down to the train station to see the great Billy Miner in handcuffs, you know. And he said to the boys, ‘Now boys, you haven’t seen me, have you? And they said, ‘No, sir,’ (she mimics their nervous tone) and off he went with (Albert) McCluskey,” Benson tells The Record. “And a little while later the gong started going at the penitentiary, and the boys said, ‘Oh my God, it’s a jail break,’ and they knew right away. And they got into their clothes and they ran like heck and went home so that nobody would question them.” Benson, whose husband, Don Benson,

THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER DID RUN SMOO
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Operation Red Nose officially kicks off this weekend, and organizers are reminding people to plan for a safe ride home this holiday season. “We … allow people to have a really good time at Christmas so they can relax and not worry about driving and let us take care of it. We add to the Christmas cheer,” said Chris Wilson of KidSport and organizer of Operation Red Nose in Burnaby, New Westminster and the Tri-Cities. On Dec. 13, officers and volunteers from the New Westminster Police Department will be out on the roads picking up people for Operation Red Nose, and on Dec. 14 Burnaby RCMP will take over. Having organizations like police departments is one way of getting the community involved, Wilson said. “There’s lots of opportunities for organizations and companies or different groups to participate,” he added. Often volunteer drivers and navigators are regular folks from the community simply looking to lend a hand during the holiday season. While the New Westminster and Burnaby operation is still looking for volunteers, Wilson said they often get a variety of applicants, from students to senior citizens. “They’re from all walks of life really,” he added. Volunteers are organized into groups
of three and sent out to pick people up when volunteers back at the base alert get a call. Volunteer drivers are required to use their own vehicle and must complete a police background check (the fee is waived by police departments when applying for Operation Red Nose). Operation Red Nose has been providing people safe rides home in British Columbia for nearly two decades, and on Nov. 29 the 2013 campaign gets underway for the second year in New Westminster and Burnaby. Last year the local operation, which includes Coquitlam, gave 864 safe rides to residents. “Not all those people were super intoxicated, but I really, honestly believe, in those 864 rides we gave, we prevented collisions, (and) we might have saved a few lives,” Wilson said. Had too much to drink? Feeling sleepy? People living in New Westminster can call 778-866-6673 or 1-877-604-NOSE for rides between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. and three Operation Red Nose volunteers will come pick you up. Two volunteers, a navigator and a driver, will drive you home in your own vehicle as a third follows in an escort vehicle to pick the volunteers up. While all the rides are free thanks to volunteer drivers, Operation Red Nose collects donations, which are donated to local nonprofit youth organizations such as KidSport New Westminster. Interested in becoming a volunteer driver? Pick up an application form at the New Westminster police station at 555 Columbia St. or visit operationnezrouge.com/en/ region/new-westminster for more.

IN MY OPINION
Re: Mayor’s million-dollar condo for sale, The Record online, Nov. 20. Ms. Hope’s piece highlights the features of Mayor Wayne Wright’s “stunning,”“opulent” $1,099,000 condo but did not reveal a dirty little secret. The evidence suggests that Mayor Wright’s condo, like approximately 20 per cent of others in the Tiffany Shores community, have been expanded without the extra habitable area being factored into unit entitlement figures used in calculating monthly strata fees assessed to all owners. For instance, Ms. Hope writes that the mayor’s suite is 2,100 square feet in area, yet the official unit entitlement is 147 square metres, or 1,582 square feet (rounded). Using these figures, strata fees for the Mayor’s suite are being assessed on about 75 per cent of the actual

habitable area. The result of these irregularities: The almost 80 per cent of owners without expanded suites are highly subsidizing strata management/maintenance costs for the enlarged suites, like the one Ms. Hope wrote belongs to Mayor Wright. Is the mayor responsible for the irregularities and inequity issue? No. Should the mayor have known about the issue? Probably, yes. The information is available to all owners. Does the mayor and/or other owners of the suite benefit financially from the irregularities and resulting inequities? The evidence suggests, yes. Planning for a Supreme Court lawsuit is currently underway should the irregularities and inequities for all suites at Tiffany Shores not be voluntarily corrected in the near future. The outcome could serve as precedent for other condo owners.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No trust in risk assessment Dear Editor:
No harm from coal facility? It’s no wonder our residents are skeptical. Fraser Surrey Docks surely knew who they were hiring to run this environmental risk assessment. Record readers should be informed that SNC-Lavalin is worldrenowned as one of the most corrupt companies on the planet. A September Financial Post headline reads: “Canada now dominates World Bank corruption list, thanks to SNC-Lavalin.” Anyone can Google the details. This is not a company to be trusted with our health and well-being. In the comic books, this is the type of organization Batman or Superman would be fighting against. Looks like we are going to have to go back to using common sense. Obviously coal transport does put us and our environment at risk. But, what’s even more risky
is trusting the kind of people who say, “No risks here” all the way to the bank. I hope everyone will join me in calling Fraser Surrey Docks to make our outrage known. Or, we can, as The Record article states, comment on the assessment by email: FSD-EIA@portmetrovancouver.com.

How about rebuilding or expanding the Queensborough Bridge to reﬂect the growth in Queensborough of residential, retail and commercial development. Include a decent pedestrian walkway on each side of the bridge as well. Even better … look at revamping the rail crossing, by adding a walkway on either side of the rail bridge, fenced in to prevent access to the rail. Could have been lots of money for this project had they council not decided to go ahead with the white elephant ofﬁce tower at 8th and Columbia after UPG pulled out. But hey, it’s not their money after all. What do they care?

is New Westminster’s poet laureate emeritus, calls the stories “snapshots into real life over a period of 100 years.” The book will appeal to local residents who want to know about the city’s rich history, those who generally love to marvel and/ or reminisce about days past and to those who love a funny tale. For Benson, the tradition of oral storytelling through the generations is precious, and it’s something she fears is being lost.
“Our families are so fractured nowadays. So many families, they are lucky if they’ve got two parents and most either don’t have any grandparents or their grandparents are living in Miami or Fort Saint John or something, and they don’t get to see them. They don’t get to hear the old stories, you see.” Hear Benson tell her stories at her book launch on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. at New Westminster Public Library or buy the book at Renaissance Books, 43 Sixth St.

◗ CITY HALL IN BRIEF
Highrise proposed for downtown Industrial expansion
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A 26-storey highrise with commercial space and rental units is being proposed in the downtown. GBL Architects has applied for a rezoning and special development permit for a mixed-used commercial and residential project at the corner of Sixth and Carnarvon streets. The building would include commercial at grade on Sixth Street, 282 rental units and ground-oriented units along Carnarvon and Victoria streets. The project is now going through the review process. Once reviewed by the advisory planning commission and the city’s design panel, staff will report back to council.
Banners for ’Bellies
Spiffy new banners will adorn Queen’s ParkArena in time for the New Westminster Salmonbellies’ 125th anniversary season. The New Westminster Senior Salmonbellies Lacrosse Club will be celebrating its 125th year in 2014 and wants to leave a legacy for the city and lacrosse fans by replacing the aging, mismatched Mann Cup banners now hanging from the rafters in Queens’ Park Arena. The team is hoping to replace 24 banners that honour teams and decades from the Salmonbellies’ storied history. “I think it’s a really good project, one the city can really support,” said Coun. Bill Harper. Council approved $3,500 for the banners, which will be installed by arena staff in the spring – in time for the anniversary.
An industrial building in the Braid industrial area is being adapted and expanded to provide additional storage. Council has approved a development permit for 455 Brunette Ave., where an existing building will get a 306-squaremetre (3,300-square-foot) addition for use as a mini-storage warehouse. Canadian Mini-Warehouse Properties, which owns the lot to the north of this site, purchased this site with the hope of converting it to a mini-storage building and incorporating it into its existing business.
Bylaws get a revamp New Westminster is aiming to modernize its waterworks regulations so they’re easier to understand. The city’s bylaw was drafted in 1942 and has been amended many times through the years, said a staff report. “The current bylaw is considered outdated and needs to be consolidated and reformatted in order to provide better clarity and consistency with other bylaws and legislation,” stated the report. “The proposed bylaw will update terminology and language, enhance clarity and modernize the city’s regulatory and administrative provisions of the water distribution system.” A staff report noted that New Westminster’s water distribution system includes about 205 kilometres of water mains, 2,100 valves, 9,000 service connections, 712 fire hydrants, 14 pressure-reducing valves and 1,100 water meters. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Top dancers go for gold
New exhibit at Plaskett
A gala at Massey Theatre tonight will help send Canada’s best young dancers to Europe. The Gala for Gold fundraiser is tonight (Friday, Nov. 29) at 7 p.m., and it includes dance performances along with silent and live auctions. Team Canada dancers are off to the International Dance Organization’s world championships in December. In their ranks will be six dancers from Douglas Ballet Academy. Erin Carpentier and Jaydene Searle are off to the world tap championships, Dec. 1 to 8 in Germany. Caroline Kiddie, Emily Wismer, Jenny Lian and Morgan Bringeland-Powell are heading to Poland for the ballet, jazz and modern worlds Dec. 7 to 15. The Team Canada dancers were choFor a video, sen after a rigorous audition process that scan brought together the best dancers from with across the country. A press release notes Layar that Canadian dancers are known to be some of the best in the world, with several world titles to the country’s credit. This year’s team is headed by choreographer’s Danielle Gardner, of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, and Joshua Beamish of Move: The Company. “They have high hopes of making it to the podium and making Canada proud,” the release says. But getting the dancers to Europe isn’t easy. “Dance is not recognized in Canada as a sporting event, even though many of these dancers train up to seven days per week, they are as flexible as any gymnast, as graceful as figure skaters and as dedicated as any Olympic athlete,” the release notes. That means the dancers must cover their own costs, which amount to about $4,000 per dancer. They’ve been fundraising since the summer to raise the money. Gala For Gold tickets are $21.95. Buy through www. masseytheatre.com or call 604-521-5050. For more on the local dancers’ journey to the ballet, jazz and modern worlds, check out their website at www. fourdancersonedream.com.

Straight will be on hand at the gallery this Sunday, Dec. 1 starting at 1 p.m. Apress release notes that Straight is a First Nations artist whose work as a commercial artist reflects his view of the natural world in a unique way. “Influenced by his heritage and upbringing, his paintings merge the real and the imagined by using digital and illustrative elements,” the release notes. Straight was raised on the Prairies and now lives in Surrey. The Plaskett Gallery is at Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave. It’s open Tuesdays to Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m., as well as during all Massey Theatre performances.

Winter Harp marks 20 years Concert with men’s choir Sunday at Massey Theatre It all began simply enough in the late 1980s, when Lori Pappajohn and Alan Woodland started annual Christmas concerts featuring harp and readings at the New Westminster Public Library. Now, Winter Harp is one of Western Canada’s most beloved holiday traditions, and it’s celebrating its 20th anniversary this season. The acclaimed ensemble is offering a concert this Sunday, Dec. 1 at the Massey Theatre with the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir. “New Westminster really gave us our start,” said Pappajohn, the ensemble’s director and a Royal City resident, in a press
release. She recalled the days of working with Woodland – who was the city’s chief librarian at the time – to put on their concerts in the library. “We had no budget when we started, but we could use the library’s For a community room for free, video, so that helped,” she rememscan bered. “And I also perwith formed at Irving House for Layar its Christmas celebrations.” Each year the audience grew, and the two renamed their show Winter Harp and moved it to Vancouver. Out of that grew the Winter Harp ensemble, which combines harps and percussion with rare medieval instruments, flutes, poetry and song. In 2006, it first teamed up with the ◗Winter Harp Page 12

Choirs in concert
Elektra, Amabilis, musica intima offer local shows BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER email@example.com
Nothing says Christmas like the sound of voices raised in song. Fans of choral music have plenty of offerings in New Westminster this holiday season. Both Elektra Women’s Choir and musica intima are visiting town once again to perform their Christmas concerts, and New Westminster’s own Amabilis Singers also have a holiday concert on offer. ◗ Elektra kicks it off on Saturday, Nov. 30 with Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra. The concert, which is at 2 p.m. at Queens Avenue United Church, features Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols. The choir will be joined by Vancouver harpist Heidi Krutzen. “Our audience always comes away from Chez Nous having heard some Christmas melodies that bring back memories, but also having had some surprises,” said the choir’s artistic director, Morna Edmundson, in a press release. Edmundson and accompanist Stephen Smith are also welcoming the Little Flower Academy Chamber Choir, under the direction of Marizza Mislang, for the
concert. Tickets for Chez Nous: Christmas with Elektra are $28 regular, $22 for seniors and $15 for students with valid ID. Buy online at www.ticketstonight.ca. For more information, see www.elektra.ca, call 604-739-1255 or email info@ elektra.ca. ◗ On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Amabilis Singers are offering up A Christmas Wish. The concert is taking place at New Westminster Christian Reformed Church at 8255 13th Ave. (between First and Newcombe streets) in Burnaby. It starts at 2 p.m. “Come, be moved by the luscious writing of Dan Forrest, the majesty of Mendelssohn’s Heilig, Heilig, the stirring purity of Caracciola’s There is No Rose and the tenderness of Rutter’s Christmas Lullaby,” says a notice from the choir. The concert will also include favourite carols and sing-alongs. Tickets are $20, or free for children under 12. They’re available from all choir members, at the door, or by calling 604-433-6538. ◗ On Saturday evening, Dec. 14, musica intima performs its holiday concert at Knox Presbyterian Church in Sapperton, starting at 7:30 p.m. The concert, light for the Child, includes works by Benjamin Britten, Kristopher Fulton, Michael Conway Baker and John Burge. “I love performing here,”
says Melanie Adams, who runs a voice studio in New Westminster and is currently the ensemble’s longestserving member. “Knox Presbyterian Church is close and intimate, and a beautiful building to sing in. People who find it more difficult to get into Vancouver have a chance to hear music by one of the country’s best ensembles.” Tickets are $35 regular, $30 for seniors or $10 for students, with group rates available.

As soon as you enter an animal shelter, the tempta!on to adopt will be very great. That’s why it’s so important to consider — before any adorable faces #nd their way into your heart — whether bringing an animal into your life is right for you!
Pets as Christmas gifts: not a good idea Movies and TV have given people the idea that puppies and ki&ens make heartwarming holiday gi"s for kids, spouses and other signi#cant others. But the reality is more o"en heart-wrenching for most of these living, breathing “gi"s”, not to men!on the families who end up giving up the pets once they grow and require more !me, a&en!on, training and expenses than the families can give. Pets should never be an impulse purchase. Many people do not have the !me, energy or money to care for a dog over the long term. A new owner may enjoy the animal for a few weeks, but then resent the gi" once the novelty wears o%. Also, FOSTERS NEEDED: Are you an experienced ‘cat person’, looking for a challenge? Several cats (those marked with * a#er their names) have been at the shelter for a number of years. Either because they are very "mid or have other issues, these cats are overlooked by poten"al adopters. If you feel you are equipped to handle a ‘special needs’ ki%y, we’d love to hear from you. They will require a lot of pa"ence, however, we are con$dent that with enough love even these li%le ones can become func"oning and happy members of society.
discourage parents from giving pups and ki&ens to their children as gi"s. Children get bored with gi"s, and it’s heartbreaking when families grow !red of the growing dog. Pups between the ages of 7 to 14 months o"en wind up at shelters or at the vet for euthanasia, because the owners did not train them, resul!ng in “behavior problems.” Even worse, some owners dump unwanted pets on the road or in the woods, where they cannot survive on their own. Sta!s!cs indicate most puppies and ki&ens never reach their second birthdays. Instead, give books on pet selec!on, training, care, health and diet, and individual breeds. Videos and subscrip!ons to pet magazines and newsle&ers are also good choices. Read the en!re ar!cle at www.rchs.bc.ca
Harra is a big and beau!ful diva who couldn’t cope with the shelter environment so she quit ea!ng and nearly died. In a foster home she was coaxed back to health but she has retained her diva personality and #nicky ea!ng habits. She is friendly when she feels like it, but don’t bother trying to make a lap cat out of this one! She’d prefer to be a one and only cat, and no dogs or children need apply!

firstname.lastname@example.org Francine* is very sweet, !mid cat. She was rescued from an industrial yard and has made great progress overcoming some of her fears since she came to us. Francine has been at the shelter a long !me and may take quite a while to adjust to a new home. But with enough love and pa!ence, she may be able to adjust. Best for a quiet home.

Felix has languished for nearly three years in our shelter, wai!ng for that special human. This senior cat has so much to o%er the right person – he’s very con#dent socially and loving once he gets to know you. All he asks for is a peaceful indoor home. He’s learned to tolerate the company of young cats, but he would be ‘purrrfectly’ content to be the centre of the universe for his human family.

Laina* came to RCHS as a three year-old — pregnant, homeless and very fearful. She has had a quiet loving foster home where she was allowed to be the gentle introvert that she is. She enjoys being with other cats and and spending !me outdoors during the day provided the catdoor is near. She needs a quiet home with adults – no children or dogs for this sensi!ve, shy feline princess.
Cash* was trapped as an older ki&en and named a"er Johnny Cash for his sleek black hair, but public performances aren’t this introvert’s forte. This shyguy would be lost without the company of at least one other cat but he’s not the sort who could adapt to a busy household or small children. One on one, he can be very loving, so if you are a so" spoken, gentle person with a lot of pa!ence, he might just be the perfect #t.

Des!ny* is eager to have her own home, preferably as an only cat, so her deeply loving and a%ec!onate side can thrive. It is not the “des!ny” of this beau!ful young gal to live with other cats in a shelter. While being very a%ec!onate Des!ny is moody and independent. Shelter life is stressful for a sensi!ve cat like her and we believe that whoever gives her a chance will be rewarded many !mes over.
Tia* came to us in October 2006 along with her son, Li&le Beau. They were adopted together from Petcetera but it turns out it wasn’t a good home for Tia because she seems to have been very stressed there. Tia needs a peaceful home with adults or older kids and no dogs.

Salmonbellies help to spread Christmas cheer AROUND TOWN
he New Westminster Minor Lacrosse Association is hoping to spread some holiday joy this Christmas. All Salmonbellies players, parents, coaches, fans and friends are invited to attend the second annual Christmas food drive that’s being held on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Queen’s Park Arena. People are invited to bring donations of nonperishable items for the food bank – and an appetite. Mr. Mikes restaurant will be grilling up some fresh Mikeburgers for a $5 donation, with 100 per cent of donations gong to support those in need.
At the Anvil
Anvil Centre won’t open until next spring, but two of the city’s newest employees are hard at work trying to make it a success.
Vali Marling began her job as the centre’s general manager in September, while Heidi Hughes assumed her role as manager of conference sales and marketing in May. The duo will oversee the operation, marketing and promotion of Anvil Centre, which is currently under construction and set to open on Columbia Street in 2014. Marling, whose most recent position was director of operations at Tradex in Abbotsford, will be in charge of overseeing the overall operations of the centre’s primary business functions, as well as other ancillary services such as catering and audiovisual. Hughes’ years of experience in ales and marketing includes work for major international hotel chains such as Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott, where she was responsible for selling meeting and convention facilities. “The unique vision behind the design of Anvil Centre is what makes this facility so special,” Hughes said. “My job is to market Anvil Centre as the whole package – not just somewhere to have an event, but a place to create and
have unique experiences.” Greg Magirescu, the city’s manager of arts and cultural development, and Rob McCullough, manager of the New Westminster
Museum and Archives, round out the Anvil Centre management team.
The number of entries
taking part in this year’s Santa Claus Parade grows with each passing day. Because of internal troubles with the Hyack Festival Association, the
City of New Westminster opted to organize this year’s parade. The parade is taking place on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 11 a.m.

Projecting the past into the future ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
very once in a while, something happens that tells you there has been a change, that something you have been doing for a long time is being replaced by a new way of doing things. Part of what we do regularly is give talks and presentations, frequently augmented by projected images. We’ve had a digital projector for a while, but for about 50 years our
slide shows were all with a Kodak Carousel projector, and thousands of slides in our collection of historical images remain to be scanned. Change is part of our field of researching and presenting history, and that fact was brought forcefully to our attention when Kodak discontinued the Carousel projector in 2004. It is mind-boggling to think back to the thousands of times that we have carried a set of slides, often with other equipment, to show to a group. There will be people reading this column who can remember seeing a lantern slide machine that could project an image

onto a screen. Early lantern slide projectors, in the 18th, 19th and into the 20th centuries, used an oil lamp for illumination. Stories are often told of this type of machine sending a black oily smoke up to the room’s ceiling, of it giving the room a definite odour and being a very messy item to clean well enough for a reasonably bright image. A number of people with whom we have discussed lantern slides have memories of church events when Bible stories and hymn words were shown on a white wall. A couple of people also remembered such a projector being used in a theatre as part of a vaudeville

performance. The New Westminster Museum and Archives have some excellent examples of such machines as well as a nice collection of slides. Many of the oil-type projectors were adapted with the arrival of electricity and continued to serve for many years, but eventually their time, like that of many projectors still around today, simply ended, when a new innovation took over. While we don’t have an oil burning lantern slide machine in our own collection, we do have one old electric model that projected one slide at a time or showed film strips. Another very simple pro-

jector we have, used a normal light bulb and a crude lens to show images on a wall where they could be traced. If you remember Christmases from the 1950s or ’60s, you just might have one of these “Magic Lanterns.” Things do change and this small glimpse at projector history, simply recognizes the soon-to-occur passing of an “old friend.” The new world of projection has us carefully planning which programs to scan for digital use, what images to reproduce for future use, and what current things to photograph. Our history is a record of change, and once more we move to something new.

◗ IN THE LIBRARY
Library marks World AIDS Day BY NAOMI EISENSTAT CONTRIBUTOR firstname.lastname@example.org
ec. 1 is World AIDS Day, a day to raise awareness of the disease of AIDS, which is spread by the HIV virus. Despite recent progress in antiretroviral medications, the fight for the eradication of AIDS is not finished. More than 35.3 million people are living with HIV, 71,300 of whom live in Canada. Information about AIDS and HIV is freely available on the websites for World AIDS Day, the World Health Organization, and the Canadian AIDS society, but New Westminster Public Library can also recommend books concerned with the AIDS pandemic. There are excellent teaching tools in the children’s department. Come
Sit by Me is a picture book published in 1989, in response to HIV-positive kids who were unfairly expelled from school or ostracized from their communities. It shows kids it is OK to hug or to play with kids with HIV. Quicksand, by an anonymous author, was published 20 years later and is intended for older kids. It clarifies many complicated questions surrounding HIV/AIDS with an engaging and calming style. Patrick’s Wish is a true story written by Karen Mitchell with Rebecca Upjohn and narrated from the point of view of Patrick’s little sister, Lyanne. The book is filled with photographs that vividly captures Patrick’s zealous energy for life. The library also has Printz Honor recipient Allan Stratton’s internationally bestselling Chanda’s Secrets. This title
about a 16-year-old girl who dreams of scholarship and cares for her family (many of whom are infected with HIV) has been listed on numerous book-of-the-year award lists. Important titles are also available in the adult collection. Stephen Lewis, the Canadian former UN envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, published Race Against Time, available as either a hardcover and an ebook. A hard-hitting fictionalized account is Push by Sapphire (the inspiration for the movie Precious), which features an HIV-positive heroine. Let us join the world on Dec. 1 by challenging misconceptions about AIDS and working to eradicate the pandemic for good. The New Westminster Public Library is at 716 Sixth Ave. Find out more at www.nwpl.ca.

Runners place top 10 at ﬁrst NCAA national BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
Simon Fraser University finished among the top 10 teams in the country at its first-ever NCAA Division II national cross-country championships. Clan senior Lindsey Butterworth, who placed fourth at the earlier West Region championships, finished in 12th place, the highest placing of all regional qualifiers. Butterworth ran the six-kilometre circuit in a personal-best time of 21:23.7 to lead the Clan team to seventh place in the overall aggregate at the championships held in Spokane, Washington on Saturday.

“At the beginning of the season the goal was a top-10 finish, so we’re very happy with how things turned out,” said SFU head coach Britt Townsend in a Clan press release. “We didn’t have Kansas (Mackenzie), who had to drop out with a stress fracture, and that was tough. She tried to compete and wanted to help the team, but she was in agony over the first two kilometres. Unfortunately that probably cost us 60 or 70 points that would have put us in the top four.” Fellow Clan senior Kirstin Allen was second in team scoring, placing 37th in a time of 21:47.8.

Saturday will be an unfamiliar stage for the Simon Fraser University women’s rugby team. The first-place SFU club side take on the Mudhens from Seattle in the first division Anna Schnell Cup championship at John Oliver Park on Saturday. SFU last tasted victory in a championship final three seasons ago, when the Clan fashioned a 6-0 record en route to a Tier 2 title. Since earning promotion to the premiership, SFU has steadily improved its product to the point of qualifying for the playoffs last year before being eliminated in the semifinals. “The season has been very successful for us,” said SFU team captain Christina Burnham in a B.C. Rugby press release. “It’s not just that we have gone undefeated this half, but we have made great strides as a team in several areas of our game. We have a very committed group of girls that push each other to improve their skills, fitness and work ethic each week.” SFU leads the league in both offence and defence, piling up almost 400 points in just seven games, while allowing less than nine per outing. The Clan showed its prowess with an earlier 71-17 victory over the Mudhens in league play. Since then the Seattle club has rattled off five consecutive wins, including a 77-10 win over defending champion Bayside in the semifinals last weekend. A key player to watch on the Mudhens is Ashley Kiniecik, who has scored 12 tries in just four games this season. “We know their forward pack is strong in set pieces and at contact points, and we expect them to challenge us tight during open play,” Burnham said. “They also have a lot of pace outside that we’ll need to pressure and shut down early.” SFU boasts B.C. senior ◗Rugby Page 27

The Clan also holds the record for 24 consecutive wins or ties, set from 2011 to 2012. In Sunday’s quarter-final win, Alexander Kleefeldt’s counter broke the old record of 73 goals in a season. The Clan currently leads the nation in scoring offence in Div. II, averaging 3.41 goals per game. But SFU’s stout defence and goalkeeping cannot be overlooked, having just allowed 17 goals to date this season. “We’re an excellent attacking team, and (goalie) Brandon Watson is fantastic, and our team defence has set the stage for us to be successful,” added Koch. “But honestly, we’re not even thinking about (the final). We’re just focussing on the next game. It sounds like a cliché, but you got to win a semifinal first.”
