‘This man genuinely cares about his community and pours his entire retirement life into all of his projects.’ 4

WHITE ROCK — A possible strike by White Rock city workers has been put on hold following several meetings set up by the city last minute. Scheduled for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the meetings were set up after the union announced its intention to serve 72-hour strike notice last week after the essential services had been decided upon. Mike Guraliuk, president of the city workers’ union, said the city approached the union before they could serve their 72hour notice. “So everything is on hold, which could be a good thing,” he said. In February, the city’s union workers voted 94 per cent in favour of striking after being without an agreement since the end of 2011. Both sides have been negotiating for the past year, to no avail. If strike notice is served, many of the city’s services, included waste removal will be affected. The only services that would be deemed “essential” and unaffected are policing and fire services. Guraliuk added he hadn’t heard any concerns from residents yet, but the union was sending mass mailouts this week to inform residents about the potential job action and how it might affect them. “The last thing that we want to do is to disrupt lives and businesses. Taking job action is our last resort,” reads an excerpt from the letter. “We don’t want to disrupt services, but until we see concrete progress, we feel we have little choice,” said Guraliuk.

Truck crash snarls traffic in Cloverdale SURREY — Westbound traffic was snarled along Highway 10 in Cloverdale for about three hours Wednesday morning after a semitrailer hit a commercial van and flipped onto the road. Police said witnesses indicated the westbound semi ran a red light at 168th Street, on the highway, and crashed into a commercial van that was turning left. The semi hit a ditch, flipped over and blocked both westbound lanes. Nobody was seriously hurt. Police said the semi driver was not injured, but his passenger was taken to hospital for head and neck injuries that were considered to be minor. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the van’s driver was also taken to hospital, “as a precaution.” No charges have yet been laid. The crash happened at 6:45 a.m.

Surrey cop in court for concert incident SURREY — A Surrey RCMP officer is scheduled to appear in Vancouver provincial court next month, accused of assault in connection with an alleged incident involving security at a PNE concert last September. Const. Daniel Dallaire was off duty during the incident alleged to have occurred Sept. 15, 2013. He was charged with one count of assault following a Vancouver Police investigation. Const. Brian Montague, a VPD spokesman, declined to discuss the nature of the allegation, as it’s “now before the courts.” Dallaire will be back in court May 27. A press statement released by Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy notes that a Code of Conduct investigation is also underway and that Dallaire “remains on operational duties at this time.”

Surrey sex offender back in custody SURREY — A convicted sex offender at high risk to re-offend is in custody after being charged with breaching his conditions earlier this month. The man, 39-year-old James William Conway of Surrey, is charged with two counts of breach of recognizance following an incident on the SkyTrain on the evening of April 13. Conway is now being charged with breaching conditions, restricting him from contacting anyone under the age of 18.

SURREY — It’s a long way from a club in Surrey to the world robotics championships but having already gotten here once, Munraj Grewal wants to get even further this time. “Last year we didn’t do as well as we expected because we were rookies [but] this year I think we’ll do a lot better.” The tall 16-year-old pauses, suddenly shy. “I think we even have a chance at winning our division and hopefully the Worlds.” It’s an ambitious dream for a club that started out with four kids and one robot. “We bought one robotics kit and built a robot, went to a couple of competitions and it just grew from there,” says club organizer Travis Burroughs. Four short years ago, Burroughs, who teaches engineering, drafting and metalwork at Enver Creek Secondary, got the idea to start a robotics club after a few students expressed an interest. The team started out competing in local championships and after a couple of years at that level, they decided to aim higher. “If you win one of those [local] tournaments you get to go to the B.C. Season Qualifier and then if you get an award, you get to qualify for the [VEX Robotics High School World] Championships in Anaheim,” explains Grewal, a grade 11 student. But before the club even gets to that first tournament, there’s a lot of work to be done.

“The process starts with a design. We get out the sketchbooks and draw what we’re going to do, what the game is, what we need to overcome, any obstacles, anything that we might face,” explains Nick Tsimoshkin, 16, who’s in his third year in the club. Then, the students build prototypes and fine-tune the robots until they’re satisfied. “[It’s] a lot of trial and error,” admits Burroughs. “But this year, they’ve just been ahead of things and they’ve managed to keep the robot at a nice solid level all the way along.” It helps that the school and the PAC have been so supportive. “We’re the only school in Surrey that has its own court and playing field and that really helps the kids work on their ideas and build their projects. It’s all packed away but here…” he trails off, pointing at a few photos on the screen. “So the robots unfold and then they can pick up these big balls and these little ones and then they’ve got to drive over that bump and under here and then they’ve got to score goals.” As he talks, his voice grows more and more excited and it’s easy to see where the kids get their enthusiasm from. It’s this enthusiasm that’s inspired Grewal and Tsimoshkin to follow many of the club’s alumni who have gone on to engineering programs at BCIT, UBC and SFU. “I would like to (do) mechatronics, maybe avionics mechatronics, but I’m definitely going into an engineering field, that’s for

sure because that’s something I enjoy, something I really look forward to doing later in life,” says Tsimoshkin. If he does go in that direction, it’ll be a continuation of a lifelong dream. “I’ve been interested in robotics and building things [for a long time] but I never got a chance in elementary school or in early high school [to do that] so in grade nine I joined junior robotics.” The decision to join the club was an equally easy one for Grewal. “I’ve always been a hands on sort of person and I’ve always liked building things so when I saw that our school had it I just joined.” The excitement over the Robotics Club has even reached Tim Cross, the principal. He’s thrilled to have a club that makes kids who would never join a sports team feel like they’re a part of the school community. “They’re getting challenged like they were never challenged before, in an area that they’re really passionate about,” he says. Grinning, he adds that, “I anticipate the trip down to the world championships to be an annual event, not just every once in a while.” “The kids are doing an outstanding job representing Enver Creek, Mr. Burroughs and themselves and you couldn’t ask for anything better,” he says proudly. “Two world championships, two years in a row is a very successful club when you think that they’re competing [with teams from] all around the world.”

SURREY — Ron Meadley had never planned for a quiet retirement. “It just wasn’t practical nor was it the best for myself,” Meadley says. “I knew that it wouldn’t work.” After serving in various managerial positions for tobacco and furniture companies, Meadley looked at his retirement as an opportunity to become proactive and give back to the community. Over a decade-long career of environmental conservation of Surrey’s forests and waters, Meadley has acted as vice-president of the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club, vice-president of the Little Campbell Watershed Society and president of the Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society. On April 15, Meadley was named ‘Good Citizen of the Year’ by the City of Surrey at the Annual Volunteer Services Celebration. The spark to create an impact in his environment, he says, began when he tried to save an eroding island he was living on in Nova Scotia close to 40 years ago. Young Island, a glacial till island off Nova Scotia’s coast, was experiencing a loss of four to five inches of land per year as strong high tides would pull the gravel composition of the island away from its shores. Seeing this, he thought of a way to prevent further erosion. For five years, by hand, he would roll boulders 20 to 30 feet to the water’s edge to create a 1,000-foot long protective wall. He laughs at the memory, shaking his head and rubbing his hands on his

His face crinkles into a warm smile when he recalls all the children he’s led through the forests that edge his South Surrey home. He gestures towards the sun-dappled window of his living room that looks over Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest. “If you can bring the children through the forest and have them draw a leaf just the way it is,” he says. “You give them something tangible they can actually touch with their hands and you can see the sparkle that’s in their eyes.” Meadley has also worked with

various teachers across Surrey to bring fish breeding into schools. Fertilized eggs are provided to classrooms by the Semiahmoo hatchery. After development, the children bring the fish back to Semiahmoo where they can learn more about salmon before releasing the young fish back into the river. He describes the experience as something truly special. “Once you give a child a bucket with fish that they can release back into the wild, you realize you’re giving them an experience they’ve never had before,” said Meadley. Bi-annual community plantings have also revitalized Surrey’s forests and helped the society to connect with citizens of all ages who are interested in the environment. “We have small shovels just for little folk,” he describes fondly of the plantings, “and these kids are so small that they can still barely lift them. It’s truly something to see.” Through the society, Meadley says he has also built bonds with other retirees who, like him, didn’t see the end of the work week as the end of their productivity. “There are a lot of seniors who want to continue to help and literally grow with the community,” said Meadley. Jeff Harrison, Meadley’s neighbour, led the charge in nominating him as ‘Good Citizen of the Year’. For years, Harrison had heard about all the work that Meadley had been doing for the community and decided to do something about it. For three weeks, Harrison collected letters of recommendation from each of Meadley’s organizations before sending off the packet to the City of Surrey. “I’m just happy that the city made the selection that they did,” says Harrison of Meadley’s award, “This man genuinely cares about his community and pours his entire retirement life into all of his projects.

Surrey killer loses appeal of his murder conviction Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

VANCOUVER — Surrey convicted murderer Gary Donald Johnston will continue to serve his life sentence for the 1998 stabbing murder of Vic Fraser. B.C. Court of Appeal Justice Edward Chiasson dismissed Johnston’s appeal of his conviction, with Justices Daphne Smith and Harvey Groberman concurring. “This is the big one, I feel this is it,” said the victim’s sister, Jeanie Fraser, reacting to the appeal court’s decision. “He may appeal the sentencing, but good luck. It’s amazing what it takes to get these dirt bags off the road.” In November 2011 Johnston, now 54, was sentenced to the mandatory life sentence, and to serve 15 years in prison before he can apply for parole, after Justice Robert Crawford found him guilty of seconddegree murder in the stabbing of Fraser, 42, on March 10, 1998. A trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster heard in 2011 that Johnston stabbed Fraser, a New Westminster crane operator, nine times, breaking off knife blades in his neck before bludgeoning him with a flowerpot, booting him in the ribs and making off with his wallet. The court heard Fraser had interrupted Johnston while he was burglarizing the little yellow bungalow in Bridgeview that Jeanie Fraser owned. Fraser died of massive blood loss. After Fraser’s death, Johnston made his way to Regina where, eight-and-a-half

months later, he stabbed caretaker Wayne Griffith multiple times in the neck, wrapped his body in plastic and dumped it in a desolate field. Originally charged with second-degree Gary Johnston murder in that case, Johnston pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years, plus time served. He did seven. Undercover RCMP officers posing as an organized crime gang approached Johnston when he was on parole and roughly 60 scenarios were enacted in Ontario and Quebec, over six months, to win his trust. The 2011 trial heard that during their last scenario Johnston told the undercover cops that he’d stabbed Fraser about 30 times in the throat, and also offered to carry out killings for the bogus crime syndicate. He was arrested immediately after that. The killer’s life-long criminal record began at age 18 and since then he’s been convicted, sometimes on multiple occasions, of burglary, assault causing bodily harm and extortion, besides the Saskatchewan manslaughter conviction and his murder conviction in the Fraser case. While satisfied with the decision, Fraser noted nothing will bring her dead brother back. “It still isn’t going to change,” she said. “We have a lifetime sentence.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

DELTA — The culinary arts program at Delta Secondary will keep on cooking. The board of education on Tuesday agreed to pass an amended budget, one that leaves out a proposed elimination of the cafeteria teaching program at the Ladner high school, much to the delight of a group of former and current students in attendance at the meeting. Lori Pilling, the teacher chef in charge of the program, said she was elated. “I feel proud, so proud of our students and our community for voicing their opinions and being advocates in the process,” she said. Faced with a $3.2 million deficit and considering a number of measures, the board had proposed eliminating the DSS program due to low enrollment. The move prompted a large contingent of teachers, current and former students, as well as other supporters from the community, to show up at the board’s

budget consultation meeting last week to plead for the program’s survival. At that meeting, Pilling presented a petition with nearly 1,000 names. Trustee Donna Burke on Tuesday said the consultation process works, noting the board aims to engage the community in building and maintaining a school system that reflects local priorities, values and expectations. She said the community made it clear how it felt about the district’s culinary arts programs, and she agreed. Board Chair Laura Dixon said the district has been astute in keeping tight controls of its operations, resulting in the ability to continue many services as long as possible. “While we have faced difficult decisions in the past that have garnered much attention, it has always been our task to determine the educational benefits of our decisions,” she said. “We are some 3,000 students smaller than we once were, we face costs that increase faster than our funding, which makes it ever more difficult to stretch our dollars, so we have no choice but to face up to these difficult decisions.”

Man stabbed outside Dairy Queen Tom Zytaruk

SURREY — A Surrey man was stabbed during a fight outside a Dairy Queen in Fleetwood on Monday night. Police have yet to arrest a suspect in the 10:30 p.m. attack, in the 9100block of 152nd Street.

Police responded to a 911 call about a fight involving a group of people, but found nobody there on arrival. About 20 minutes later, Surrey firefighters were flagged down by a man who said his friend had been stabbed and was inside a recovery house about a block and a half away. Police said there was a blood trail

from Dairy Queen to the victim’s room, where the 38-year-old man was found suffering from numerous slash and stab wounds. He was taken to hospital in serious condition but is expected to recover, police said. Visit the Now online for the latest on this story.

SURREY — Former Surrey school district superintendent Mike McKay has taken a position at the province’s Ministry of Education as a strategic advisor. McKay retired from his district post in December after serving just under nine years at the helm. He was succeeded by thendeputy superintendent Jordan Tinney. At that time, McKay said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family but noted that he would also continue to promote education in the province. Following his retirement, McKay continued to serves as a trustee for Mike McKay the Cowichan Valley school district, which he will maintain alongside his new ministry role. In a letter announcing McKay’s new role, education minister Peter Fassbender and deputy minister Rob Wood said the former superintendent would play a valuable role within the ministry, “With his breadth of experience and relationships across the province, Mike is uniquely positioned to work with boards of education and district staff to strengthen shared governance structures, with particular attention to developing the governance approaches to help the K-12 sector pursue new opportunities for shared services. Mike’s knowledge and experience will also benefit all parts of the education system in British Columbia,” reads the letter. Also mentioned in the letter are the “fiscally challenging times” the ministry is facing and how efforts to reduce overhead must be redoubled. “This will be done in consultation with school districts and Mike is the ideal person to work with the ministry team.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

Laser therapy is not a surgical or invasive process. There is no cutting or burning with this type of laser. Instead, it gets absorbed by soft tissue and joints. This stimulates the healing process by increasing the production of ATP(adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the simple fuel that cells need to heal injuries and resolve inflammation. Laser therapy can also reduce scar tissue formation, increase lymphatic drainage and improve vascular circulation. All these things lead to faster and improved healing.

Surrey politics

Rasode’s positioned herself well ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

T

his weekend Surrey celebrates Earth Day with the annual Party For the Planet festivities in Whalley. The new Surrey City Hall will be the focus of the event, with main stage featuring assorted musical acts and guided tours of the new facility. Surrey residents and others in attendance will have a chance to view the new council chambers and will even be able to check out the mayor’s office. With a little luck, you will even have a chance to test the fit of the mayor’s chair – if you can wait long enough to get through the line of incumbent and former city politicians who aspire to fill that chair themselves. While current mayor Dianne Watts insists she will be running again in November’s civic elections, that promise is worth as much as most political commitments. The grass looks pretty green in the federal Conservative party stronghold riding of South Surrey-White Rock-

Cloverdale, where Watts would be a star candidate for beleaguered Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Tories. As the “will she or won’t she?” speculation about Watts’ intensions continues to swirl, the list of pretenders to her throne continues to grow. Last week, to the surprise of absolutely nobody, Surrey Councillor Barinder Rasode officially split from the Surrey First team that swept every seat on council in the 2011 civic elections. It’s quite a feat for Rasode – Surrey First describes themselves as a “coalition of independents,” but Rasode has resigned from the group so she can sit as – wait for it – an independent. Seems kind of redundant redundant, no? Her actions last week show that when opportunity knocks, Rasode will answer the door. She first took a swing at civic politics in 2005 with a failed council bid under the banner of the left-leaning Surrey Civic Coalition. She was back in 2008 where she rode the popular Surrey First electoral train into office as the first South Asian woman ever elected to Surrey council. Everything was still hunky-dory three

years later when Rasode and every other member of the Surrey First civic slate swept the council elections on the strength of Watts’ leadership and popularity. When she was first elected, Rasode promised to “not forget the little people,” before settling in to five solid years as Surrey First’s cheerleader in residence. Last year, all that harmony went out the window when Watts used her deciding vote to spike plans for a casino in South Surrey. Suddenly the cheerleader found her voice as Rasode spoke out against Watts and the actions of the Surrey First council. It seems the prodevelopment Surrey First agenda was a little too constraining for Rasode as she railed against her colleagues on such matters as transparency in Surrey First decision making, contracting out police services, crime and safety in the community, and how

money is spent at city hall. All great points, but for some reason these issues never bothered her for the first five years of her tenure until she had some sort of falling out with her colleagues. She tweeted about all of the sunshine and happiness in the wonderful world of Surrey until she had her epiphany and began speaking out against the group that helped her get elected in the first place. And by amazing coincidence, she found her conscience roughly one year before the next civic election. Rasode’s resignation from Surrey First last week was full of the expected “she said, she said” accusations between herself and Watts. Rasode accused the Surrey First councillors of making important decisions behind closed doors while Watts countered by pointing out Rasode supported every Surrey First budget

and never raised any of her concerns in council chambers, preferring to do her talking in the media. Yep, Rasode and Watts don’t like each other. Got it. What was interesting in Rasode’s resignation notice was her commitment to three key issues: 1) The city’s treatment of public safety and crime issues; 2) city spending; 3) Transparency in decision making and community consultation. By another incredible coincidence, these are the same talking points being bandied about by former Surrey mayor Doug McCallum, who emerged from self-imposed exile in the last month. Neither McCallum or Rasode will admit to making a run at the mayor’s chair in the upcoming November election, but by golly, that’s an awful lot of smoke we’re smelling without any apparent fire. The bottom line is

every decision made by a politician is based on two key goals: 1) Get elected; 2) Stay elected. By stepping down now, Rasode has positioned herself well to be seen in a sympathetic light as a martyr of Surrey First. She is also painting herself as the sole voice of dissent in the council chambers of City Hall. That should be enough to carry her to re-election as a councillor in November and make her a key player on any group hoping to form a new political party to take on Surrey First. Rasode claims to be against slate politics, but considering how much she has benefited from them in the past, it’s hard to see her turning down an opportunity to run with a group created to be a viable alternative to Surrey First.

We’re taxing, tolling our way into degradation The Editor, Re: “Chestbeating over bridge rings hollow,” the Now, April 17. I very much enjoyed Michael Booth’s column but would like to point out one fact he neglected to mention. The provincial government’s only reason for the sudden interest in replacing the Massey Tunnel is to allow the Fraser to be dredged out to allow mega ships to access Fraser Surrey docks – they could not care less about taxpaying commuters. As long as the highway ends at the already gridlocked Oak Street Bridge/Street, you cannot “cure” the commuter’s problem, merely relocate it. If there were no docks, there would be no new bridge and the Pattullo replacement would receive the priority it deserves. Politicians of all stripes are falling over themselves to turn the Lower Mainland into Long Beach North, a wretched, polluted blight that we used to pity, not try to emulate. With taxes and tolls, we locals will be paying for our own degradation. Nick Mayar, Delta

Province should own Pattullo’s problems The Editor, Re: “Chestbeating over bridge rings hollow,” the Now, April 17. Michael Booth’s column tweaked my interest and stirred me to offer my two bits. To Booth’s suggestion that the province reacquire ownership of the Pattullo, I offer the following thoughts. While politicians, both regional and provincial, agree in principle that the aging Pattullo Bridge needs replacing, nobody raised the issue of tolling within the context of the current provincial tolling policy. Before the new PMH1IP project was even off the drawing board, the Pattullo Bridge was designated as the toll-free alternative to the to-be-tolled Port Mann Bridge in accordance with a much hyped-up tolling policy. That policy essentially sold all of us uninformed and desperate south-of-Fraser drivers that it was perfectly “fair” to toll the new Port Mann because the Pattullo was free.

Easter greetings would have been nice

On hindsight, it was misleading on the part of of the province to designate a crossing that it does not even own as its “designated toll-free” crossing. I wonder if the situation were reversed, would the province reciprocate? I doubt it. Fast-forward to today. The current tollfree status of the Pattullo Bridge needs to be part of any discussion and decision to replace the aging structure. Barring a retraction /revision of the current tolling policy, a replacement Pattullo cannot be tolled. Furthermore, if the replacement Pattullo is tolled, another toll-free crossing would need to be built. Is it not arguable that the province assume the added costs of maintaining the present Patullo as a result of traffic which bypassed the tolled Port Mann – even if it does not re-acquire ownership? And, it should assume the capital cost of a new tollfree crossing-keeping in mind that a tolling policy exists? There is no doubt in my mind that the province should own the Pattullo Bridge along with its attendant problems.

The Editor, Respecting diversity and cultural uniqueness is healthy. Acknowledging Happy Easter, a spiritually significant time and nationally, situated with two stat holidays, would have been welcomed in your last paper. With connections down to the central Amazon, I recognize that how people celebrate personally significant times of the year – and how this surfaces in Canada – is unique. Large community events often make headlines over several smaller, culturally diverse expressions of special days. The grounded meaning special events have for diverse communities and families have commonalities. Healthy cultural respect promotes understanding of our connectedness in one global community and does not disregard one over another.

At Surrey Arts Centre

Take a chance on dance Organizer of International Dance Day event in Surrey says it’s time North Americans further embrace the artistry of movement Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

S

URREY — Nela Hallwas can’t imagine a better way to spend International Dance Day than bringing together Serbian, Scottish, classical Indian and modern dancers for a special celebration in her own community. The Crescent Beach resident just hopes others will also want to celebrate the occasion next Tuesday, April 29 during an event she’s helped plan at Surrey Arts Centre. “Dance around the world is so huge – but it’s not quite there in North America,” Hallwas said with a tinge of resignation. “Innately, it’s a natural response we have as humans to move, regardless of social status or anything. But there always seems to be a stigma attached to dance in North America, and I don’t know why – it’s pure and beautiful, and those who’ve seen us definitely don’t think it’s boring.” Hallwas is the artistic director of Diskordanse, a professional dance company she runs at her XBa DanceCo studio, a large, gothic “black box” space located on 152nd Street in South Surrey. This is where the contemporary dancers of Diskordanse are rehearsing Aria, the company’s latest production, for performances this spring, including a pair of late-May dates at Surrey Arts Centre. Meanwhile, students schooled at XBa (pronounced “EX-ba”) are preparing to take the stage at the Bear Creek Park venue’s studio theatre Tuesday as part of the multicultural International Dance Day event (call 604-5015566 for details). “We’re fusing different cultures and dance styles,” Hallwas explained, “so we have classical Indian, which is completely different from bhangra or Bollywood, and also Serbian folk dance and Scottish highland. The concept is three friends – a Serbian, Scot and Indian – meet up and are journeying through a street scene, with an outdoor café, and there are a whole lot of people running around, and they just randomly break into dance. It’s a blending of these styles. And the one style they have in common is contemporary dance – the style that fuses them, brings them all together.” In order to secure the arts centre space on International Dance Day, Hallwas negotiated a deal with organizers of the month-long Surrey Festival of Dance, which wraps April 29 (save for its No Borders group dance challenge May 10). “The (festival) board members were amazing, because they had both theatres at the arts centre booked for a solid month, and more,” Hallwas said. “They were gracious enough to tweak their

South Surrey-based Diskordanse dance company’s new Aria show will debut in Vancouver next month before shifting to Surrey Arts Centre for a pair of performances on May 30 and 31. schedule, which is an unbelievable gesture, so we could host the event on International Dance Day.” The concept for the showcase was sparked by Hallwas’ nomination and membership in the UNESCO-backed Conseil International de la Danse (International Dance Council) last spring. “It’s a huge step for me, for XBa, because now we’re internationally accredited, which is really cool,” said Hallwas, who immigrated to Canada in 1967 from her native Yugoslavia. Diskordanse’s Aria, meanwhile, will be performed at Scotiabank Dance Centre in Vancouver on May 2 and 3 before the show shifts to Surrey Arts Centre on May 30 and 31. “Dislokation (the company’s 2013 production) was a moment, and it was about triggering emotions and upsetting people who were watching, in different ways, and hopefully we achieved that,” Hallwas said. “With Aria, it’s a story, with a beginning, middle and end, but I’m hoping nobody will clue in when they are, so it’s a progression.” Despite what audiences might think, this Aria has little to do with opera, she noted. “It’s not opera-themed – aria is actually the

Italian word for air. But I’m hoping people will think it’s about opera, because that’s where the mind goes when we hear the word. The word brings out images of grandiose, epic things, over the top – and that’s exactly what I want people to think and expect when they come to see Aria, which involves the main characters of air, danger and fire. It’s not opera, but it’s as epic as one.” Also in the works is XBa’s annual dance film festival, which this year moves from a Vancouver theatre to the company’s Surrey studio. The judged showcase, on May 25, will feature nine dance-related films (see www.xba.ca for details). The event is yet another springtime activity planned by Hallwas. “You know,” she said, “last year, with Dislokation, we were vying for time and attention with the Canucks being in the playoffs – it just seemed everyone was busy watching hockey games, but now it’s different. Those games are not happening, so we’re kind of hoping people will try something else, because what we do is pretty cool, too. No, we don’t score goals, sorry, but we create some pretty cool moments.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

Q. A.

Can you help me lose that stubborn extra weight?

Some people have difficulty losing weight even with the help of weight loss plans. Others lose weight but can’t keep it off. We specialize in helping all of these individuals. Utilizing a comprehensive approach, we identify the underlying medical, dietary, and nutritional factors that interfere with weight loss. We create a complete dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle plan specific for you that leads to not only dramatic short term weight loss but long term maintenance without feeling deprived. If necessary, we incorporate more aggressive strategies involving nutritional protocols, vitamin injections or hormone therapy (HCG or thyroid support) to facilitate weight loss. Ultimately, your new diet and nutritional plan lead not only to weight loss but more energy and well being - and a new you.

Interactive art demo tonight at UrbanScreen SURREY — People are encouraged to bring a mobile device to UrbanScreen for an after-dark interactive art demo. Starting at 8:30 p.m., such a device can activate the Longing and Forgetting artwork characters to climb, leap and maneuver on the wall of Chuck Bailey rec centre, 13458 107A Ave. The artists who created the work – Matthew Gingold, Thecla Schiphorst and Philippe Pasquier – will be on hand for the demo. Longing and Forgetting runs as a generative video from Jan. 24 to May 11, and the interactive artwork, where mobile devices control the characters’ movement,

32nd ave & 156th st

will be demonstrated on April 24. This is a free public event; Pasquier will provide live music, and refreshments will be served. The artwork is an outcome of research that explores how movement can be used more expressively and intelligently within interactive technologies. Imagined by artists and built by the City of Surrey, UrbanScreen is billed as Canada’s largest non-commercial outdoor urban screen dedicated to presenting digital and interactive art, as a satellite venue of Surrey Art Gallery. Exhibitions begin 30 minutes after sunset, and end at midnight. More information about UrbanScreen is available at www.surreyurbanscreen.ca.

The arts

Choral concert at First United ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

H

ere we are, smack dab in the middle of Arts and Culture Week as declared by the Province of British Columbia. Coralee Oakes, minister of community, sport and cultural development, wants us to know that “arts and culture thrive today in British Columbia.” Gee, I knew that, but it is always a bonus for governments to acknowledge the importance of the arts in any community. This week, for all you sports fans who don’t have hockey playoff games to attend, try going to a live entertainment presentation, such as a concert or play. The home team always wins. Stephen Horning has a choral concert on Sunday, April 27 at 2 p.m you might want to sample. His Surrey Choral Arts Project Society will be present a sacred program of choral works at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo

Ave., White Rock. The Surrey Youth Chorus and Community Chorus will be performing the “Great Mass in C Minor” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Surrey Youth Chorus will also perform Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus.” The Surrey Children’s Choir will be singing “Cantique de Jean Racine,” by Gabriel Fauré, and “For the Beauty of the Earth,” by John Rutter. And Surrey Chamber Choir will sing Benjamin Britten’s “Missa Brevis.” The organ will be played by Miri Lee. Tickets are available at the door and/or by calling 604536-3112 – adults for $28, students and seniors, $20. This concert should be beautiful and inspirational. And some applause to Stephen Horning, as well, for 22 years of enthusiastic leadership. Sometimes it takes one person with a vision and dedication to make a difference. I do meet a lot of people like Horning who make a difference in our community, and often these people are involved with, or need, the arts community to promote their “cause.” So, just by chance, I stumbled across David Dalley, who

is enthusiastically putting a polish on our problem areas. One of his projects is The Friends of the Grove, a grassroots group of Newton neighbours seeking to transform The Grove (the wooded area behind Newton Recreation Centre) into “a vibrant, welcoming and creative space for all ages.” I love Newton – culturally mixed, economically diverse and, yes, there are challenges, for sure. I run a business in Newton. I like that it is near Newton Cultural Centre and Newton Recreation Centre. I don’t like the bad things that have happened there. So hurray, here is a group that wants to bring the community together to a create a safe space for all. The Friends of the Grove will host “The Gathering at the Grove” event on Saturday, May 3, starting at 10 a.m., and the Friends seek help from local artists. Anyone interested in performing at the event or displaying artwork (they are using the trees as display space) should contact David Dalley at davidanderin@ dalley.ca or 604-502-8661 for details. All activities are free, everyone can attend, and

I hope this gathering has a huge turnout. Friends of the Grove meet Saturdays at The Grove at 10 a.m. for informal planning sessions. Find “Friends of the Grove – Surrey BC” on Facebook.

Under its new regulations, the BC Government has set up an association led by big corporations to take over the local Blue Box recycling program throughout BC. If you look closely, you’ll see that of seven board members, six are executives of Toronto-based multi-national corporations, with the seventh weighing in from Montreal. How do you like that, British Columbia? This means, unlike the current program run locally by BC municipalities, this new program will be managed not by people whose first responsibility is our local environment, but rather, their Bay St. profits.

SURREY — Actor Mike Busswood draws parallels between himself and a character he plays in Surrey Little Theatre’s production of The Drawer Boy, on stage until May 17. “I think his directness, his enjoyment of life, his childlike qualities” are all similar, said Busswood, a 57-year-old retired Telus electrician who’s passion for theatre has consumed he and his wife for some 30 years. “I did musicals in high school in Vancouver, then 10 years later my wife Cathe got me involved in Arsenic and Old

JONKER NISSAN 19505 Langley By-Pass Surrey, BC Tel: (604) 534-7957 Lace in Abbotsford. Theatre then became our hobby,” he explained, noting their daughters Samantha and Kaitlyn have since become immersed in theatre, as well. Despite taking on roles – both on and off stage – in upwards of 60 plays through the years throughout the Lower Mainland since then, Busswood said this is his first show with Surrey Little Theatre. “I have known of SLT for many years and I’ve just never gotten around to doing a show there until now,” he said. Busswood, a Langley resident, plays one of the three characters in the production of Canadian playwright Michael Healey’s script.

The right way to fill space on walls of your home Niall Shannon

North Shore News Twitter @NorthShoreNews

The task of decorating a large blank wall can pose quite a challenge to many. Fortunately, there are lots of different ideas available to intrepid designers. “The biggest mistake a lot of people make is putting small art on a large wall,” says Teresa Cain. If you’ve got a big wall, don’t be afraid to go large, she added. Cain, principal designer at Interior Solutions Design Group in North Vancouver, suggests making the space more intimate and finding balance so that each item in the room complements each other. “I would say everything has to relate back to colour, balance, scale,” says Cain. “Things have to relate to each other.” She notes, however, that there are no hard and fast rules. One design strategy to consider is the number of items on the wall.

Instead of just one mirror, canvas, or photo, try placing multiple decorations with different shapes and sizes. Cain also suggests using a triptych, which is a picture that is split it into three sections. A large wall is a good place to add a collection or grouping, or put up a large-scale work of art. “You can be extremely dramatic,” she adds, noting that some larger pieces are available for well under $1,000. There are plenty of original oil paintings from $500 to $700, says Cain. The first thing to take into consideration is the size and shape of the wall. Is it tall and skinny or short and wide? Another important consideration is cost, but Cain says this shouldn’t stop those with a flair for design from creating something beautiful on a budget. “The cheapest and easiest thing to do is paint (the wall),” she says. A growing trend is personalizing art, such as the use of decals. There are a variety of

Many print shops also take orders for wall decals. “You take something and blow it up, make it into a sticker or make it into a canvas.

Healthy gardening habits start with the right tools Developing a love of gardening can be a great way to plant the seed for a healthier lifestyle. The many benefits of a green thumb include consistent exercise, reduced stress and better mental health. In fact, a recent study conducted in Sweden found regular gardening can cut the risk of a heart attack and stroke and prolong life by as much as 30 per cent among a 60-plus age group. For those with chronic health conditions, gardening can be an ideal low-impact exercise done at your own pace. But, before you pull on your work gloves, keep the following tips in mind:

WATCH THE WEATHER If you suffer from lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, watch the weather report and avoid working outside when pollen and pollutant levels are high – these can trigger a serious lung

attack. Watch for signs of a lung attack, like increased coughing, shortness of breath wheezing, or unusual changes in phlegm.

HEAD OUT OF THE HEAT

Avoid gardening during the peak hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., when the sun is at its strongest and humidity at its highest. If you must be out during that period, plan to work in the shade and drink plenty of fluids. Also, wear a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 that protects against both UVB and UVA rays.

With the popularity of ready-to-assemble furniture made of laminates or the many plastic storage items, these surfaces are prime targets for painting. However, without the right product, your project could turn out less than desirable. “Most consumers don’t realize that not all plastics are the same,” said Denise Patterson, Krylon product manager. “In fact, most spray paints on the market will not adhere to the most popular plastics found in furniture, toys and storage.” For metal surfaces – especially those that are exposed to outdoor elements – it is important to choose a product that provides rust protection. Choosing the best spray paint for wood is dependent on the finish, use and location of your surface. A general purpose spray paint, such as Krylon ColorMaster, is an ideal choice for wood.

Surface preparation is extremely important and the best predictor of how long your finish will last. The goal is to make your surface as smooth as possible to ensure the new paint adheres well. Remove any loose rust or paint by lightly sanding. Next, clean surfaces with soap and water or degreaser, if necessary. Rinse and let your surface dry completely. Your surface should now be clean, dull and dry.

High school

Renaissance teen juggles art, acting and lifting Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

Please forgive Michael Hungerschafer if it seems like he is living a double life. Such a description of the talented teen is remarkably unfair. The truth is, if anything he leads a triple, possibly even quadruple, life. “My friends think I live secret lives,” he said with a laugh. “I do so many different things that I have different friends from the different things I do. My weightlifting friends don’t know my art friends because those circles don’t overlap. The same thing with art and theatre — the two groups don’t mix at all.” Most teens have a packed schedule during their final year of high school, but Hungerschafer makes many of his classmates look like slackers. In addition to his schoolwork — some of which is part of the advanced International Baccalaureate program — the 18-year-old is one of the top high school weightlifters in the

province, an aspiring artist and an actor who dabbles in cooking when he has the chance. “It’s all about being well rounded,” he said. “Each of the activities is a means of release for me. They fulfill a different need for me and, well, I’m a needy person I guess. The weightlifting may seem strange compared to the other things I do, but for me, it fits what I want to do. “Compared to other sports, weightlifting is right for me because it’s the root of so many other sports. It’s the backbone of living a healthy life. It keeps me fit in every regard.” Hungerschafer has been weightlifting since he was in elementary school. He has dabbled in gymnastics and diving in the past, but weightlifting is his athletic passion. Last month in Nanaimo, Hungerschafer won the B.C. Junior Weightlifting Championship

for the 85-kilogram weight class. He lifted a personal best 128-kgs in the clean and jerk plus 105-kgs in the snatch to finish in first place. His gold medal performance is impressive enough until you consider he also acted as coach of the Semiahmoo Secondary team and helped the Totems capture the team championship. Semiahmoo coach Dieter Stamm, who was unable to attend the meet, said Hungerschafer’s coaching duties adversely affected his performance and his totals would have been even better if he were able to just focus on lifting. Stamm extended this analysis to include all of the other activities in Hungerschafer’s life that distract him from his weightlifting potential. “He’s technically one of the most

Michael Hungerschafer will put his paint brushes aside next month when he will be the favourite in the 85-kg weight class at the B.C. Highschool Weightlifting Championships. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

proficient lifters I’ve coached in years, but lately he hasn’t trained hard enough,” Stamm said. “Instead of seeing him six times a week, I’m lucky if he comes in three times in a week. That’s not enough because with his experience, at this point he should be snatching around 135-kgs and lifting 175 in the clean and jerk. He’s nowhere near that now. “He’s still young and he has huge potential. He’s 18 and with some hard work, I would have no qualms about taking him to the World Youth Championships. In two years he could go to the World Juniors and then who knows? There’s the Pan-Am Games, the Commonwealth Games, the World University Games and all kinds of neat stuff coming up.” Next up for Hungerschafer are the B.C. High School Championships on May 3 where he aims to eclipse the existing provincial records — 104-kgs in the snatch and 130kgs in the clean and jerk — for his weight class. That competition is still weeks away and Hungerschafer is busy with other activities in addition to weightlifting. Earlier this year he travelled to New York to audition as an actor for the prestigious Julliard School. “It was an experience,” is all he will say of the trip. “It was in New York and it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. I really enjoyed the overall experience, but I think my nerves got to be a little bit too much that day.” This month he was able to express himself in another manner when he participated in Semiahmoo’s art show for graduating I.B. students. Much as he does with acting and weightlifting, Hungerschafer uses art to express himself in a non-verbal way. see HUNGERSCHAFER › page 42

‹ from page 41 “I like that you can say a lot with art,” he said. “I feel that art is a way to express many things — political things or just strong messages that inform people in different ways. Art is very political.” Hungerschafer has spent the last three years building a portfolio of paintings. After graduation, he plans to take a year off from academic pursuits, working for a while before embarking on a six-month trip to Spain. Much like Stamm in the weightlifting room, Semiahmoo art teacher Morgan Brailean said Hungerschafer’s potential as an artist is largely untapped.

“His strength is mostly his concepts,” she said. “His technique has grown a lot, going from really, really tight to now where his brush strokes are looser and show much more movement.

We are alWays looking for Ways to save you money

Canada is a country where people and wild animals happily co-exist – except that is, for the times when some of us get behind the wheel of a car. Wildlife collisions are a real worry for Canadian drivers, particularly between April and June, when wildlife collisions are most frequent. The most costly result is injury or even death of both the animal and the driver. They’re more common than you’d think. A report from Transport Canada found that between four and eight large animal vehicle collisions take place every hour in our country. “Most people, especially those in regions with a mix of urban and rural areas, need to be more aware of potential animal collisions,” says insurance and claims expert, Mauro Convertini, from Aviva Canada. “It’s important that drivers know the risks and act responsibly behind the wheel to try to prevent these accidents.” Convertini offers these tips to reduce your chances of being involved in a wildlife collision while driving: ❚ Read the signs and watch the road: Those yellow signs with the prancing deer are erected to warn drivers to slow down and to be more aware, especially at night. ❚ Stay in control: Never swerve abruptly – hitting a tree or moving into oncoming traffic can result in significantly more harm than hitting the animal. Brake firmly if an animal is standing on, or crossing, the road. ❚ React: If you can’t avoid striking the large animal, be ready to duck inside your car. Big animals can come through your windshield and with a weight in excess of 100 kilograms it is likely to cause severe injuries. More information on road safety is available from your insurance broker or online at avivacanada.com.
