High hopes for a new high school Project agreement for new school expected in April BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Chipped paint, rotting wood and rats – sounds more like a neglected prison than a place parents want to send their children. For more than a decade, New Westminster families have waited to hear that the aging, worn-out New Westminster Secondary School will be replaced for the roughly 2,000 students at the city’s only public high school. The project has been derailed over the years for reasons ranging from political gridlock, poor soil conditions and an old cemetery on the site, which altered the usable portion of the land. Could 2014 be the year the district and the province finally reach a long-overdue project agreement to get the school built? Trustee Casey Cook thinks so. “We’re expecting we will have a project agreement in place in April,” Cook told The Record. “Those are our expectations.” The job of building two new schools in the city is on track, and the $23.2-million replacement elementary school for John Robson – Qayqayt (pronounced Kee-Kite) Elementary – is slated to open on schedule this fall. As well, the province and the district announced the builder for the new middle school (which will be built on the former Robson site) last fall. The middle school is scheduled to be built by 2015. The replacement high school – a project that has been in the works for approximately 14 years – is the final piece in the

Bright future: Families in the city have waited more than a decade for a new school. Trustee Casey Cook predicts there will be a project agreement between the New Westminster school district and the Ministry of Education by the spring. puzzle. “It’s unfortunate that it’s taken the time that it has, but I think we are moving towards resolution,” Cook said. In the meantime, the 60-plus-year-old school looks a little more haggard each year.

Despite the aging building, high school parent Stephen Bruyneel said the education going on inside is solid. “It’s really interesting. Until you have your kids go there, I think the perception is that it’s this thing that’s falling down and all of this kind of stuff. Once they get there,

my experience talking to my kids’ friends and stuff, is kids love the school. They love the teachers. They love the camaraderie,” he said. Still, he acknowledged that the school needs to be rebuilt. ◗Cook Page 3

Transportation plan update is top priority for 2014 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

It’s not much of a surprise what the City of New Westminster’s engineering department has planned for 2014. “There is probably three things at the top – transportation, transportation and transportation,”

said Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering. “The very high priorities are to complete our master transportation plan. That’s number one.” The city expects to wrap up its master transportation plan this spring. The plan was last updated in 1998. The new plan will address all types of transportation

springtime. So it’s pretty close to being completed.” Transportation issues have long ranked as the Number 1 concern of New Westminster residents. Lowrie also expects the city to make some headway on planning for a replacement Pattullo Bridge this year. The city has been working with TransLink and Surrey on

a “collaborative strategic review process” to find a long-term solution for the Pattullo Bridge. “That’s coming out for public consultation again in February,” he said. “It’s gone from 25 options down to six, and in this next round of consultation, one of the objectives is to narrow that down

Taking a bite out of obesity

City launches new wellness program for kids

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A new program in New Westminster aims to take a bite out of childhood obesity – and help kids become healthier, happier and fitter. The city’s parks, culture and recreation department is spreading the word about a new 10-week wellness program that supports children and their families on a journey to adopt a healthy lifestyle. MEND – short for Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It! – hopes to encourage lasting lifestyle changes by improving children’s physical activity levels, nutrition and selfesteem. “It’s an amazing opportunity, not only for the children but for the entire family,” said program manager Lisa Mandel. “It’s an opportunity, not only for families to come together and be active, but for families to get stronger. It’s building bonds between families.” Originating in the United Kingdom, the program has been offered in Canada for the past couple of years. “We are really excited about it,” Mandel said. “The program has been proven to work in a lot of other sites.” The New Westminster program marks the first time it’s been offered for five- to seven-yearolds in British Columbia.

Getting active: Kids who are overweight or at risk of obesity – and their families – are invited to take part in a new wellness program in New Westminster. From left, program manager Lisa Mandel and program staff Rick Bloudell and Tracy Degusseme-Matheson try out some of the equipment for the program. Elsewhere, MEND is also offered to kids aged seven to 13. Ten sessions will be held on Sunday afternoon, with the free program aiming to start at the end of January. According to Mandel, MEND was developed in the United Kingdom to address the rising rate of obesity in children. The criteria to register for the New Westminster program is that the child must be between five and seven years old, the children should be at-risk of or above a healthy weight, families must be able to

commit to attending for the full 10 weeks and at least one parent or caregiver must attend all sessions with the child. “We are not just focusing on kids who are overweight or are struggling with weight,” Mandel said, noting families with a history of weight issues are also able to participate. “We are more than willing to look at families with those characteristics. We don’t want to turn anybody away.” People can find various BMI calculators online and type in their child’s height,

weight, age and gender to determine if they’re in the 85th percentile or above, and are exceeding a healthy weight. The sessions include “power time,” a snack time that seeks to expose families to new and exciting new healthy foods. Using smell, taste and touch – and a bit of positive peer pressure – kids (and their parents) may try foods they would normally shun. “We do a healthy living activity session with everyone – parents, kids and siblings,” Mandel said. “It isn’t just sitting and lis-

tening. They participate.” Reading labels and incorporating activity into everyday life are among the topics to be tackled. Parents and kids split up for the last hour of the program. “The kids get to go off to the gym with our activity leader,” she said. “We call it active play. We do games with them.” The Superdudes will be part of the active play component of the program and serve as role models to the children involved in MEND.

Council debates how to handle laneway housing BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The city’s plan to explore laneway housing sparked a spirited debated in council chambers on Monday. Council considered a report in which staff outlined a proposed workplan for an accessory dwelling unit program. Staff would review the interest in and feasibility of potential amendments to the zoning bylaw that would allow residents to build coach houses and laneway homes in residential areas. The work plan proposed by staff would begin with compiling information about other municipalities’ experiences with this type of housing, consulting with the community and preparing draft zoning bylaw requirements and guidelines that would be available during consultation with neighbourhoods. That would be followed by a zoning bylaw amendment process, implementation and monitoring. The Queen’s Park and Queensborough neighbourhoods aren’t proposed to be included in the program and would be dealt with separately. The Queen’s Park area is undertaking a neighbourhood planning process with the city, and Queensborough is located in a floodplain and has few lanes allowing this type of housing to be built. Coun. Bill Harper believes all areas of the city should be dealt with at the same time. “We have to treat the entire city the same,” he said. “That is my view.” Harper would prefer that the issue of

laneway housing be dealt with as part of the update of the city’s official community plan, which is getting underway. Coun. Jonathan Cote stressed that the city needs to deal with the issue of laneway housing now – not in two years. While it’s going to be a “somewhat controversial” topic, he said it’s a discussion the city needs to have. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy views laneway housing as part of the city’s affordable housing strategy. He’s not sure that a “one-size-fits-all” policy is necessary, as it could be a neighbourhood planning issue. “The only regret I have is we haven’t been able to do it sooner,” he said. McEvoy noted there are community members who are “ready to go” if a policy is approved. Council defeated a motion to consider laneway housing as part of the official community plan update, with a majority of council preferring to deal with the issue sooner. Instead, council directed staff to report back on how laneway housing is handled in other cities and options for addressing the issue in New Westminster. “Detached accessory dwelling units add to the supply and variety of housing in single-family areas while maintaining their character and promoting more efficient use of the land,” stated a staff report. “This housing option has been well-received in other cities, including the City of Vancouver and North Vancouver.” Bev Grieve, the city’s director of development services, said staff would be working on an update to the official community plan over the next two years.

IN OUR OPINION

Dear Editor:

An incinerator fouls not only our airshed, with thousands of unknown toxins and a ton of greenhouse gases for every ton burned. It fouls our rivers, lakes, and groundwater. Toxic ash landfills foul the soil (25 per cent of our waste by weight, 10 per cent by volume, remains as toxic ash). Incineration fouls our health. Only the unknowable toxic synergies are “unpredictable”; the other impacts are a sure thing. The Fraser Valley Regional District is only one of many local governments opposing the incinerator: one-third of Metro Vancouver directors voted against it. Native nations, community organizations and hundreds of individuals in both regions opposed it. An incinerator would burn our kids’ resources, waste their fossil fuels, for 50 years. Long before 2070, the Earth’s 10 billion people will be desperate for resources. Products that are difficult to recycle will be

a folly of the past. Like the costly destruction systems Metro Vancouver is now building, which will be shut down – wasted. Will our grandchildren have to mine landfills, fish the Pacific gyre? Metro’s own waste plan (financial implications, page 32) points out that diverting resources from the waste stream has economic benefits. “There is considerable economic activity that takes place in the process of recycling the collected materials into new goods as an alternative to virgin feed stocks. Although difficult to estimate, the economy associated with the remanufacturing of recycled materials into new products exceeds the costs for collection, transportation and processing. Net expenditures associated with disposal more closely reflect the entire disposal economy since there is little economic activity that occurs following disposal.” So why choose incineration? Metro Vancouver’s plan states that we can’t recycle more than 80 per cent

unless distant markets remain stable; that they are looking for contingencies. Asian markets fail when the price of oil gets too high, as happened in 2008 when we had to pay to burn or bury our recycled materials. What contingency could there be besides local remanufacture? According to Metro Vancouver’s director of policy and planning for waste management in 2011, “The contingency is waste-to-energy.” (Global incinerator corporations have deep pockets, plenty of lobbyists.) This raises the question: what happens to the 80 per cent we’ll be recycling when markets fail? It pays Asian corporations to buy, ship and remanufacture our recovered resources and ship new products back. These are cheaper not only because of low wages and poor to no environmental protection. These industries avoid the cost of extracting and refining virgin resources. Instead of wasting billions of our tax dollars on massive systems for burning, on garbage transport and ash landfills, we need to use public money to develop diversion and remanufacturing capacity today: to build industries, business, jobs: local economic renewal, for public and private profit. Metro Vancouver taxpayers can own a paper recycling plant and other remanufacturing industries, the way we own the

incinerator. We can partner with private industry and municipalities as we do with the Cache Creek landfill. We can work with private recycling industries and publicly owned facilities, too, to meet everyone’s needs for resources, as we already do with the various waste management companies. Each municipality can build a bottle washing plant; facilities to convert textiles to rags and paper, construction waste to lumber, firewood and wood chips, demolition waste to product recovery and building deconstruction. Reuse and repair community centres for appliances, furniture, bikes, can include a free store to make items available to people who can’t afford even thrift stores, taking the social justice dimension of waste into account. Diversion options are virtually unlimited. Most such developments are profitable industries and businesses. Some cost the region (as does incineration) but are profitable in the long run because they conserve resources and share our wealthethical imperatives. All are better outcomes for our taxes than toxic ash and destruction of our life support ecosystems. This necessary reconfiguration of our industrial consumer society is happening all over the world. It can happen here. We can profit today by protecting our children’s future. Hildegard Bechler, New Westminster

Coal: Time for a discussion on future ◗ continued from page 6

There is another important concern that the members overlooked in their piece. The International Energy Agency, an organization that works to ensure reliable global energy supplies, has estimated that 80 percent of world thermal coal reserves must stay in the ground if we are to have a good chance of avoiding runaway climate change. The UN climate chief recently made the same point. We are certain that the remaining 20 per cent of the world’s thermal coal can be burned without having to build a new coal port on the Fraser River in Surrey. The need to reduce coal use isn’t going to go away because it is inconvenient and the coal lobby wants to ignore it.

Furthermore, when they argue that Metro Vancouver somehow deprives developing nations of their right to self-determination by rejecting the export of U.S. coal, the coal lobby confuses its own self-interest with the common good. Eventually, if we don’t take steps to reduce thermal coal use, climate change will impact the people employed in mining and transporting B.C.’s coal as surely as it will the 120,000 people employed in the Broadway corridor in Vancouver. Eventually, if we don’t take action, disasters like the one just endured by the residents of Tacloban in the Philippines will be commonplace. We need to stop talking past each other. We invite the unions to sit down with us for a frank discussion about what the

From our family to yours – we’re proud to be locally owned and operated for over 39 years (that’s 273 dog years!)

future looks like for B.C. in a world where we take the threat of climate change seriously. This discussion is long overdue, and we need to start it soon if we are going to work together to smoothly transition to a low-carbon future. Today, we call on the unions to join us in rejecting the proposal to build a port at Fraser Surrey Docks for the export of U.S. thermal coal. This plan may benefit a U.S. railway, U.S. coal companies and the port, but it doesn’t benefit British Columbians. It puts our communities and our future at risk. Paula Williams is the founder of Communities and Coal and a Surrey mother of two children. Kevin Washbrook is a director of Voters Taking Action on Climate Change and a Vancouver father of two.

School District No. 40 (New Westminster) Community Consultation Meetings for Programs of Choice Catchments New catchments for Programs of Choice will be established for the fall of 2015. This will mainly affect students entering Kindergarten in Montessori and Early French Immersion in the fall of 2015. For the school year 2014-2015 (this coming fall), the catchments for Montessori and French Immersion are the whole district, which is the same as currently. However, for the following year, 2015-2016, catchments will be determined so that students will have the best chance to attend the Program of Choice closest to their residence. Students already in a Program of Choice will NOT be affected. Students attending the regular program in their neighbourhood school are also NOT affected. Community consultations on the exact boundaries for these catchments will be held at the following meetings. Please help us spread the word so that interested parents of pre-school children will be able to attend and have input on these boundaries. We look forward to seeing you at the meetings! Program

MEND: Program gets kids moving ◗ continued from page 3

“They’re a group of six animated characters that help our MEND leaders to connect with the kids. They’re meant to act as role models for the kids throughout the entire program,” Mandel said. “Every session includes what we like to call a ‘moving story’ that features the Superdudes.” In the “moving story,” readers read out the story and get the kids involved by jumping, zooming and wiggling in order to act out what is going on, Mandel said. “In the story, the Superdudes encounter

some sort of problem on the journey to MEND World, and the kids help by problem solving ways to help the Superdudes out,” she said. The program is open to residents of New Westminster and beyond, as the only other Lower Mainland site offering the program for five- to seven-year-olds is Strathcona.

◗ HYACK FESTIVAL ASSOCIATION

Council miffed by meeting time New Westminster city council isn’t impressed that the Hyack Festival Association would schedule its annual general meeting on a night it knew council members were unable to attend. The association held its annual general meeting on Monday, Jan. 13 – the same night as a scheduled council meeting.

“That is unheard of,” said Coun. Chuck Puchmayr. The city will send communication to the new Hyack board informing them of the city’s concerns about the scheduling. Puchmayr said the city is Hyack’s largest partner and believes council members should

have been able to attend. Coun. Betty McIntosh said council members aren’t entitled to vote at Hyack’s annual general meeting, unless they have paid a membership fee, as council members are honorary members of the association. – Theresa McManus

to about two or three options. Then there would be further technical analysis done on that shortlist.” To date, the City of New Westminster hasn’t stated which of the options it would support. In addition to getting input from the public as part of this next round of consultation, the city also expects to express its preferences. “At the end of the day, TransLink has to make the final decision,” Lowrie said. “They have made it very express to us that they will do the utmost to reach a solution that is agreeable to both cities.” Lowrie is fairly confident a “preferred solution” will be determined this year. The third major item on the engineering department’s to-do list for 2014 is to address whistle cessation at railway crossings. “Train whistle cessation is on our list as a high priority,” Lowrie said. “We will be putting a lot of effort toward that. Certainly in the downtown we hope to be able to conclude that this year.” Lowrie anticipates the signals and improvements needed to put an end to rail whistles downtown will be completed this year. “We have two crossings in the downtown area. The first one is at Begbie Street; the other is at Fourth Street. Those two cross-

ings are pretty critical in the downtown area. That’s our first priority,” he said. “We are also looking at train whistle cessation in other neighbourhoods, the Queensborough neighbourhood, and I guess I would call it the Fraserview neighbourhood.” Lowrie said the city has to do a number of rail crossing improvements in order

to stop the whistle blowing. The city will also continue to deal with truck traffic in 2014. It’s become a hot topic of conversation in the community, particularly since tolls were implemented on the Port Mann Bridge, and the number of trucks counted on city streets, particularly Royal Avenue, climbed. “Truck traffic corridors is

obviously another issue that is perhaps a little bit separate but also influences two of those three – the master transportation plan and Pattullo Bridge,” Lowrie said. “We are looking at excluding several of the truck routes or introducing new prohibitions on several corridors, notably Royal Avenue, and Columbia Street is the other one and

east Eighth Avenue. Those are priority corridors we are looking at.”

Q:

What is the benefit of having a Winter facial?

A:

Color never needs a translation so try something unexpected in small doses.

Here are some basics to help you decide • Look in your wardrobe for colors you tend to buy for yourself, chances are that color is something you love. • Find inspiration in a piece of artwork, a fabric such as a cushion or pillow, bedding or upholstery Look in magazines and books for inspiring color combinations that are pleasing to you. Have a color consultation if you want some more ideas and choices. This can narrow down choices for you and put together a finished and polished color scheme that you will surely love. • Main walls, ceilings, floors are 60% , furniture is 30% and accent is 10% Color can be bold as an accent at 10% but could be overwhelming at 60% of the room. • Keep colors in the same palette in your dwelling for a uniformed look but vary the degrees of your color scheme for each room. • The Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid, which is a lovely purple shade that you can see in varying shades in our window display for January. From sophisticated elegance to a teenage funky room, this color will go the distance as it is said to be inspiring and magical. • How will you incorporate this fun color this year in your everyday life?

ASK A REALTOR Q. Should I appeal the lower A.

house assessment I just received if I plan to sell my home this year?

I have fielded several calls this past week from clients that wondered if they should fight their assessment to improve how the assessed value will look to a potential Buyer. My answer is always the Derrick Thornhill same. As Realtors, we give little attention to assessments. It’s just too broad of a brush Park Georgia Realty stroke to paint the full picture of your home’s true value. What matters are the comparable sales in the last 90 days in your direct neighbourhood. It doesn’t matter if your assessment says that your home is worth 700K or a million dollars. If a similar home on your block, in similar condition, on a similar lot sold for 800K…there’s your value! And that’s the statistic a Buyer will cling too when deciding what to offer on your home, not your Assessment Authority opinion. Do your potential Buyer a favour and don’t make a fuss. It will mean a slightly lower tax bill for them on the way in.

ASK A COUNSELLOR Q: Are you feeling worried or on edge, or can’t sleep because of your thoughts? You may have a type of anxiety. A: A large percentage of my counselling practice is working with clients that have anxiety. Anxiety comes in various forms such as panic attacks, the fear of heights or concerns about medical conditions or others judging us. Anxiety is often inherited since it seems to run in families. Children, adults and seniors can all have anxiety. Mary Longworth The way that I am able to help clients with anxiety is using a technique called cognitive-behavioural therapy. This kind of therapy involves talking with the person about their fears and helping that person change those worrisome thoughts into more soothing and peaceful ideas. The other part of the therapy is the behavioural part. This part can involve recommending exercise to reduce the stress that has built up in the body; it could also be learning relaxation techniques or avoiding coffee or cola and other stimulants that can increase the anxiety symptoms. Some client’s anxiety is very severe and may need a prescription from their physician for anxiety treatment. The amount of time that a client takes to manage and reduce their anxiety symptoms varies per person.

ASK A VETERINARIAN

Q: “I’ve been seeing lots of ads for river cruises lately - how long have they been around and how are they different from an ocean cruise?” A: Good question! River cruises have been around for almost 20 years

Q: Do I need to include a cover letter in my application? A: While some employers don’t specifically ask for a

cover letter, some of those same employers expect one. By never attaching a cover letter, you may be shooting yourself in the foot. Neely Hazell Therefore, 98% of the time we’d say yes, submit your resume with a cover letter. You may never know which employers really want to see one and which don’t, but at least you’ve covered all your bases. We have seen situations where hiring managers do not specifically state that they require a cover letter, and yet, when a resume is received without one, the resume is petulantly tossed aside. It is sad but true. On a side note, ensure you state why you want to work for said company; demonstrate your knowledge of their organization and how your values align, if possible. A great place to begin your research is on the company’s About Us page. A cover letter is also a great place to showcase your written communication skills-an-attribute highly valued by many. Using a general cover letter for each job is like fishing without a baited hook; you may snag something, but your chances of getting what you want improve greatly when your documentation is baited for a specific employer.

Despite the lack of sunshine, our skin receives no reprieve from the harsh UV rays over winter. This coupled with the drying effect of wind KATIE MARSHALL and the lack of humidity in the air can leave your skin irritated, scaly and sallow. A facial works to counteract these effects in three ways: by improving circulation, by providing deep cleansing, and by restoring moisture and hydration. A winter facial treatment which will not only leave you looking beautiful, but feeling great too. The reason we want to improve circulation to our face is to stimulate our skin’s own natural renewal, leaving a complexion which looks younger and feels smoother. This stimulation can take the form of exfoliants, masks or peels which removes the dead skin cells to reveal the new skin cells underneath. Exfoliation also allows for ingredients to absorb more deeply into your skin, maximising the benefits. Winter is also the perfect time to get into some fabulous peel treatments. From peels that you have done in your lunch hour through to treatment mask peels that are left on these all benefit different levels to give your skin deep exfoliation and stimulation that minimizes fine lines, pigmentation, blemishes and smooth out texture and can ultimately slow down the aging process.

but their popularity has really taken off over the past 3 or 4 years.

Most river cruises carry fewer than 200 passengers vs the typical mega ocean ships which take over 3,000 people. The result is the river cruise is a lot more intimate with personal attention from ship staff.

Marivic Cregan

Because they are smaller, the river cruises can dock right in the middle of most cities and you can literally stroll off the ship right into the historic heart of town.

The majority of river boats operate in the heart of Europe on such popular rivers as the Rhine, the Danube and the Seine to name a few. Others destinations include the Volga river in Russia, the Yangtze river in China and the Mekong River in Vietnam & Cambodia. The emphasis on river cruises is on culture & history with lots of on-board educational talks by local experts and shore excursions that emphasize this. The dining is intimate with many of the ships including wine & beer with lunch and dinner. There’s no question that a river cruise is a “splurge” with rates starting from about $2800 per person for a 7 night cruise but when you consider that covers your cruise, all your food, wine with lunch & dinner, all your shore excursions and all that with first class service, it is definitely worth it! We haven’t had a single person come back from a river cruise that has had a complaint - quite a compliment to the high level of service that every passenger receives!

Q: My dogs have started smelling recently. Is there anything I can do to make them smell better? A: Has your dog started smelling like….. A dog? It’s not uncommon for your puppy to smell a bit more during the cooler, wetter months. Try these tips to help make your dog (and your home) smell a little sweeter: 1. Bathe your dog. An unkempt coat can trap dirt and other unpleasant odours. If you are unable to give your dog a bath yourself, give our experienced groomers at our pet spa a call at 604 526 1048. There are now many other great alternatives, such as dry shampoo, foaming shampoo or wet wipes (that do not require any rinsing) that can help in a pinch. 2. Keep your dog as dry as possible. After being out in the vancouver rain, make sure to dry your dog thoroughly with a towel-paying special attention to places like the underbelly and other places where odour loves to hide- like between toes and under arms. 3. Wash your dog’s collar. Give your pet’s collar(s) a good cleaning in some detergent and hot water. Depending on the fabric, some collars can be thrown in the washing machine. Make sure the collar is completely dry before putting it back on. 4. Wash your dog’s bedding. There is no sense in having lovely smelling, clean doggies if they are snuggling in a dirty bed. Dirty dog beds and blankets are homes to bacteria-causing odours that will cling to your dog. This goes the same for any other areas your doggy loves to curl up on, such as couches, chairs and your bed. 5. Vacuum the floors. Dirty carpets frequented by your pets can be just as dirty as your pet’s bedding and be harbouring bacteria-causing odours. Please Note: Some odour is perfectly normal but if your dog’s odour worsens and persists, you may want to speak to your veterinarian. Skin problems, dental/teeth issues, infected ears and anal glands could be the culprit of your smelly pup and your veterinarian can help you address the root of the problem.

Poetry, art combine in new book

It’s a marriage of words and visual art, and it’s being brought to life in New Westminster. A book launch is being held Saturday, Feb. 1 for Ekphrasticism: Painted Words. It’s set for the Arts Council of New Westminster gallery in Centennial Lodge, Queen’s Park. The new work, released by Silver Bow Publishing, features paintings by Don Portelance and poetry by Candice James, New Westminster’s poet laureate. The 178-page book brings to life the concept of “ekphrasis” – in which one work of art describes another. It contains 82 full colour paintings by Portelance along with 82 poems by James, each inspired by one of the paintings. “Each full-colour, full-page painting is accompanied by a poem on the page beside it,” a press release says. “You will be whisked off into a world of art, colour, words, beauty and inspiration at the opening reception presentation. The marriage of painting and poetry encompassed in this book makes it a must-have for the discerning artistic and literary collectors’ libraries.” Books and paintings will be offered for sale at a discounted price at the book launch, and Portelance and James will be available for signing. Portelance will also talk about his paintings, while James will read some of her poetry. Portelance’s work will be on display at the gallery throughout February, with about 35 pieces from the book. The launch reception runs from 1 to 3 p.m. For more details, see. www.rclas.com or email silverbowpublishing@gmail.com. – Julie MacLellan

Lisa King/THE RECORD

Art at the library

Fibre art and clay models are among the finds you’ll discover at the New Westminster Public Library this month. The library is hosting two art shows on display until Jan. 31. On the ramp gallery, on the main level, is Louise Smith’s show Dropped Threads. A press release notes that the delicate fibre art depicting landscapes, fruit and flowers is created using hand stitching and free motion machine

embroidery on handpainted silk – a technique that results in a distinctive three-dimensional effect. Upstairs, you can check out Shavon Cheng’s show The Nature of Life. The release notes that the show represents her journey through nature, with watercolours, pastels, acrylics and unique models of clay and plasticine. “She believes that life is filled with colour and when you notice the small, hidden details, they will catch you by surprise and show you to an unexpect-

Palm Springs, Anyone?

by Samira Hodania

With Modernism Week just around the corner (February 13-23) and a particularly arctic Canadian winter underway, the desert seems just about perfect right now.

stay

Conveniently located in the heart of the uptown design district, Alcazar is all about the sleek and modern ABC’s (Alcazar, Birba and Cheekys). Appointed with local art, Alcazar is the youngest of the triangle, mastering comfort by spoiling their guests with imported Italian linens and townie bikes. Attracting a diverse crowd, Birba serves a creative menu with Italian wood fired pizzas and locally-sourced, hand-crafted cocktails. In the morning, refuel with the breakfast quesadilla and a freshly squeezed kale smoothie at Cheeky’s and you’ll be ready to hit the town. From $120/night, www.alcazarpalmsprings.com

do

Book the architectural tour with Palm Springs Modern Tours (make sure to see Robert) to experience some of the most posh and elite neighborhoods of Palm Springs. The driving tour takes you through the desert’s most notable architecture and gives you the inside scoop on who lived there during the Rat Pack era and which Hollywood stars are vacationing there during Coachella. 3 hour tour, $85/person, www.palmspringsmoderntours.com

hike

Turn your phone off for a morning and hike the Indian Canyons to experience some breathtaking views of the desert. We conquered the Andreas Canyon (don’t worry if you and your gym aren’t speaking, it’s just a 1-mile loop) where you’ll see more than 150 species of plants, some which were used for medicine and preparing food centuries ago. Trails can be hiked with a ranger or solo, www.indian-canyons.com Read our full Palm Springs itinerary at www.vitamindaily.com www.Visitpalmsprings.com

Shampoo Be Gone

Ski Bunny Facial

We’ve heard a lot about the “No poo” movement (people swamping shampoo for natural ingredients or daily shampooers giving it up for a few weeks to detox the hair) and have to admit we’re intrigued.

Skiing Peak-to-Peak is exhilarating, but the whipping wind, reflecting sun, and sub-zero temperatures can wreak havoc on your face.

by Sara Samson

Purely Perfect has recently come out with the ultimate “unshampoo” Cleansing Crème that could be a game changer. Used on wet hair, the crème takes the impurities out of your hair but leaves the good stuff like essential oils to make your hair shiny and keep colour vibrant. There’s also no need for conditioner because your hair’s natural conditioners are still intact. Rinse, and repeat (eventually).

Centennial Lodge in Queens Park 1st St. and 3rd Ave,. New West To register, call Columbia-Bowell 604-521-4881 Or email columbia-bowell@telus.net

Sponsored by Columbia-Bowell Funeral Home

Pre- and post-piste, make sure to slather your visage with Pure by Dr. Roebuck’s, an Australian dermatologist whose ski bunny daughters have taken up the brand. While we love all the products in the range (which we’ve been testing all fall), Pure is the winner when it comes to long-lasting skin protection that’s non-greasy and smells cleans and fresh. That’s right, now hide it on your ski boot.

Something to Cheer About

Cold-weather Kicks

“Go play” doesn’t quite do the trick when there’s a sugared-up posse gathered in the living room.

We’re stoked to start our running resolution… just as soon as we gear up.

by Maria Tallarico

Tuesday, January 28th 10:00 - 11:30 AM

by Sarah Bancroft

Get them out of the “I’m bored” mood (and into the play room!) with a Pom Pom Maker kit ($8). Great for a group activity (like, if you were having a party), cut the pieces out and let the kids go crazy wrapping yarn. No glue, no paint, nothing that can be used as a weapon - it’s a sweetly simple craft for everyone. Bonus: pom poms actually look adorable when finished and can be strewn about the house or hung on a string for decoration. Hear that? It’s the sound of peace and quiet. Order the Clover Pom Pom maker ($8) from Collage Collage, http://shop.collagecollage.ca

by Christine Laroche

First on the shopping list is a pair of kicks that can stand up to a Canadian winter, like Nike’s Air Pegasus+30 Shield ($139 at MEC). These beauties are water-repellent, highly reflective (will we ever see the sunshine again?) and lined in (comfy cozy) microfleece. And did we mention that they’re purple leopard with a neon accent? In case the running thing doesn’t get off the ground, we’ll just move to our plan B resolution: Adopt the athletic fashion trend. $139 at MEC stores nationwide, www.mec.ca

While in Canada, the students attended classes at New Westminster Secondary School (and kept up with their lessons from China so they weren’t behind when they got home), participated in cultural activities and enjoyed home life at billeted homes in the city. Coun. Lorrie Williams, who stays in touch with the girls who visited New Westminster, recently received an email from Jennifer, who is now interning as a doctor in China. “She is doing well. She

There is a good selection of internal and external applicants.” The planning department is currently fully staffed, and that may or may not be the case at the end of the month. “Depending on what happens with the planning manager, we may or may not have another position,” Grieve said.

Fifteen minutes of fun

BY LIZ HUNTER CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Family Literacy Day is celebrated across Canada on Monday, Jan. 27, and this year’s theme is “15 Minutes of Fun.” The intention of the theme is to remind families that they can learn together while doing something fun. Families can share books, songs and stories, play games together, explore nature, follow a new recipe, plan a trip or try a new craft – learning as they go. In celebration of this special day, the New Westminster Public Library and the Literacy New Westminster committee have organized a “15-minutes-of-fun” event at the library for the evening of Monday, Jan. 27. The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m., and families are invited to join us for as little or as much of the two hours as they wish. The event will consist of a number of stations that will be positioned throughout the library. When families arrive, they will each be given a 15-minutes-of-fun passport, and each time they visit one of

the stations, they will get their passport stamped. The more stations members of the family visit, the more chances they will have to win one of the three grand prize baskets, which will be loaded with games, books and other goodies for the whole family. Some stations will be better suited to older children while other stations will suit a younger audience, so there is something for everyone. Examples of the activities include: a recipe station where families will make something yummy; board games and video games; a mapping station; button-making; a book collage mash-up station; a reading nook and more. The library invites families to come and enjoy 15 minutes of fun, over and over and over again. Please register your family by coming to the children’s department of the library or by calling 604-527-4677. The New Westminster Public Library is at 716 Sixth Ave. You can also learn more about literacy at www.abclifeliteracy.ca or library programs at www.nwpl.ca.

Hyack grad moves up in CFL Scouting Bureau rankings Casey Chin and Matthias Goossen moved up the Canadian Football League winter rankings. The CFL Scouting Bureau listed Gooseen, a 6-4, 294-pound offensive lineman with the Simon Fraser University Clan, in fifth place, while Chin, an SFU linebacker moved up one spot in the rankings to 11th overall. Goossen, a 10-game starter for the Clan, made the biggest jump, creeping into the top-five from 15th at the end of last season. Chin led the NCAA Division II Great Northwest conference in tackles for a third straight season. The New Westminster Secondary grad broke his 2012 conference record with 119 stops last season. He also holds the Great Northwest record for most unassisted tackles with 68 in 2013. Both varsity Clan cocaptains were named first team all-conference players last season. Offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif of McGill is listed as the bureau’s No. 1 pick. Linemen Pierre Lavertu of Laval and Montreal’s David Foucault round out the top three.
