    Twenty high school studentswere at BCIT last week, search-ing for clues after the discov-ery of two bloodied and lifelessdummies.The dummies were found ly-

    ing in the bathrooms of twoidentical dorm rooms, and themock crime-scene investigationwas the culmination of the tech-nical institutes popular summerCSI Academy.After three days of learning

    about forensic fields like finger-printing, anthropology, DNA,chemical-trace evidence, knot

    and video analysis, students inthe summer science camp weredivided into two teams and chal-lenged to unravel the mystery ofthe apparent dummy-icide.The idea is just to expose

    them to a whole bunch of dif-ferent types of forensics to see iftheres anything that theyre in-terested in, and then it can may-be inform their future careers ifthats something that they decidethey want to pursue, said camporganizer Steen Hartsen, whoteaches forensic DNA at BCITand manages the DNA lab oncampus.The weeklong, 20-seat camp

    was started in 2001 and is more

    popular than ever, with orga-nizers having to turn kids awayfrom this years camp.Usually theyre very, very

    keen students who are really in-terested in science,Hartsensaid of the typical CSI camper.Theyre usually very, very intothe whole forensic angle as well.

    Burnaby Mountain Grade 12student Bailey Bridge, whoseparents are both RCMPmem-

    bers, is one such student.I just thought it would be a

    good way to figure out what Iwas into, like the deeper parts ofthe subject, she said.Learning about knots from ex-

    pert JohnVanTassel, a pioneer offorensic knot-analysis, was espe-cially interesting, Bridge said, aswas finding out interesting factsabout bones like that humansdont have knee caps until aboutage four.Its all been quite interest-

    ing, she said.Students spent a day and a

    half at the mock crime scene lastweek and then shared their find-ings at a classroom session Fri-day.For more information, visit

    While lawns brown and water restric-tions tighten, Burnabys chafer beetlesare poised to thrive next spring.MetroVancouver moved to Stage 3

    water restrictionsTuesday morning,ramping up water conservation mea-sures, including a ban on all lawn sprin-kling with treated drinking water.The timing couldnt be worse for resi-

    dents looking to use nematodes to con-trol European chafer beetles.This is the time of year the nematodes

    should be applied to lawns, and the mi-croscopic groundworms require twoweeks of daily watering to effectively de-stroy beetle larvae.But Burnaby deputy director of en-

    gineering Dipak Dattani told theNOWthat, as of Monday, the city is not issuingany new permits.Local residents who ordered subsi-

    dized nematodes from the city in Juneand picked them up before MetroVan-couver increased water restrictions thisweek will be allowed to sprinkle theirlawns for two weeks if they were issuedexemption permits, but those exemp-tions will not be extended,Dattani said.The deputy director was optimis-

    tic the nematodes of those with permitswould be effective, however, especially ifshort periods of rain, like those onTues-day continued.They just need enough of the ground

    to be moist to be mobile, he said. Afterthat they will just search out the larvae.Dry weather prompted B.C. to de-

    clare a Level 4 drought last week, andMetroVancouver has moved to Stage 3water restrictions for the first time in 12years in order to head off potential watershortages in the future.We have implemented Stage 3 wa-

    ter use restrictions to help ensure thatwe have the necessary supply of wa-ter through the early fall for use in ourhomes and businesses, and for criticalcommunity needs such as fire suppres-sion,Metro chief administrative officerCarol Mason told the Vancouver Sun.For more information on activities re-

    stricted under Stage 3, visit www.metrovancouver.org.

    StreamsunderpressureWeather worrisome for Burnabys salmon-bearing streamsJenniferMoreaujmoreau@burnabynow.com

    Burnaby streamkeepersare keeping an eye on localwaterways, following un-usually hot and dry weath-er that could threaten localfish populations.With so much sun and so

    little rain, water and oxygenlevels in Burnabys mainsalmon bearing creeks aredropping.It doesnt look good,

    said Nick Kvenich, pres-ident of the Eagle CreekStreamkeepers. Wereworried that the low lev-els are going to result in fishdeaths.The salmon rearing pond

    the streamkeepers built issuffering from lack of fresh,cool oxygenated water flow-ing from the creek downvarious side channels.Thestreamkeepers have beenmonitoring the oxygen lev-els, which have dropped todangerously low levels, like-ly to low to support fish.The City of Burnaby

    loaned the streamkeepers awater truck to water plantsaround the pond,many ofwhich were planted by vol-unteers to provide shadeand keep the waters cool.The streamkeepers alsobrought in a pump to aer-

    ate and transfer water fromthe main creek to the pond,which helped bring the oxy-gen up to a level that wouldmarginally support fish.The pond is habitat for

    coho fry, which spend oneto two years in the localcreek before heading to theopen ocean.Meanwhile, in Stoney

    Creek, Burnabys most pro-lific salmon-bearing stream,waters levels are also drop-ping.There are places in

    the upper reaches, wherethere are a few pools thathave become isolated, said

    Alan James of the StoneyCreek Environment Com-mittee. There are fish inthose pools that are gettingstressed because the tem-perature is higher than itwould be if the creek wereactually flowing throughthem, and they are moresusceptible to predators,likes herons.The salmon in Stoney

    Creek are wild coho thathatched last spring, Jamessaid.If it continues and it

    dries up even further, then,yes, its going to be a seri-ous thing, James said. Ev-

    erybodys concerned aboutwhat the longterm ramifica-tions of this are. If this be-comes the new normal withclimate change, the fishare going to have to adaptsomehow.James said theres been

    talk about moving the fish,but that would be a hugeoperation.The volunteer group

    is considering plantingmore streamside trees, butit would be years beforetheyre big enough to pro-vide adequate shade.

    No arrests have beenmade and there are no sus-pects.That was the main mes-

    sage from the Integrat-ed Homicide InvestigationTeam concerning the fatalshooting of a 53-year-oldBurnaby man last week.At a press conference last

    Thursday, Sgt. StephanieAshton, spokesperson forthe homicide team, stressedthe fact that police were stillchasing down leads follow-ing the shooting and thatthere was no informationavailable about any suspector suspects.

    When asked if she had adescription or informationabout a suspect vehicle toshare, she was clear in herresponse: police do not havea suspect.Few other details were

    shared about the investiga-tion.

    Ashton did, however, saythere was no reason for thepublic to be concerned thata shooter was on the loosein Burnaby.We are treating this ho-

    micide investigation withthe seriousness it deserves,and the public can be as-sured all possible steps arebeing taken to address theirconcerns by conducting athorough and detailed in-vestigation,Ashton addedin a media statement.Investigators believe the

    incident was targeted butdont believe theyll haveany new information for afew days as the investigationcontinues.The shooting took place

    around noon on July 15 inthe 7900 block ofWickhamPlace, a cul-de-sac nearCanadaWay off BerkleyStreet.The victim, Burna-by resident Hanif Jessa, wasthe superintendent of nightstreet cleaning for the CityofVancouver.Anyone with information

    or anyone who may havebeen in the area ofWick-ham Place lastWednesdayis asked to contact the ho-micide team at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email-ing ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.Anyone wishing to re-main anonymous is askedto contact Crime Stoppersat 1-800-222-8477.

    The Burnaby Fire De-partment was on scene thispast Monday, as a damagedgas line caused a street evac-uation in North Burnaby.At around 9:30 a.m., a

    third-party contractor hit anatural gas line in the areaof Gilmore andYale.Fortis B.C. and the Burn-

    aby Fire Department, alongwith the RCMP, worked to-gether to cordon off Gilm-ore Street so that crewscould safely stem the flowof gas.The line was safely

    blowing clear, or into theair unobstructed, accordingto Fortis B.C. spokesperson

    Michael Allison.Other than being com-

    pletely contained, blowingclear is the best-case sce-nario for a gas leak, he said,as it allows for workers tomore easily identify the lo-cation of the rupture.Ladder and rescue com-

    panies were among the 19responders standing by incase of a fire, according toDeputy Fire Chief ChrisBowcock.Bowcock added that,

    while unlikely, the two-inchFortis gas line posed a riskof igniting. Bowcock andhis men were equipped withfire hoses and protectivegear in case of emergency,though he said the situationwas well in hand.

    PlanB leavesusspinningourwheelsWere finally getting a

    look at Plan B in the wakeof the failure of theTrans-Link funding plebiscite.The B, it seems, stands forboondoggle.The mayors of Surrey

    andVancouver are threat-ening theyll go their ownway and seek to build rap-id transit lines without

    the regional transporta-tion authority. Other may-ors in the region are nowso disgruntled, theres talkof disbanding the mayorscouncil the only smidgenof influence elected offi-cials (and by extension, therest of us) have withTrans-Link.And who can blame

    them?They did the im-possible and put togeth-er a (mostly) unanimousvision for needed tran-sit improvements only tohave the whole thing knee-capped by being put to adoomed-from-the-startplebiscite.The most frequent

    grievance aired during theexpensive, waste-of-timevote was that taxpayersarent satisfied withTrans-Links broken governance

    model.But lets not forget, the

    governance model is work-ing exactly as it was in-tended to when the Liber-als cooked it up in 2007.It takes decision-mak-

    ing powers away from ourlocal elected leaders andshifts accountability andblame off of the province,which appointsTrans-Links board members,controls its funding leversand, when a transporta-

    tion minister feels like it,imposes things anyway likenon-working fare gates.Thwarting accountabil-

    ity is a feature, not a bug,and the only change weveseen at the agency sincethe plebiscite is a revolvingdoor forTransLinks exec-utives.Meanwhile, the rest of

    us brave the increasinglyworse traffic and crowd-ed buses.Were right backwhere we started: spinningour wheels.

    B.C.surplusmeans littleEven though his budget

    last year went from project-ing a miserly looking tinysurplus to becoming almostembarrassingly awash inriches, dont expect FinanceMinister Mike de Jong tostart doling out new spend-ing any time soon.The books on last years

    budget have now beensigned off by the prov-inces auditor general, andthat surplus ballooned froma mere $184 million to amuch healthier $1.7 billion.How did this happen?First of all, the govern-

    ment was able to keepspending under controland stuck pretty close to itsbudget figures. Health-carecosts keep going up and up(to the tune of about a halfbillion dollars a year), butthey are not exceeding whatwas budgeted.On the revenue side, the

    provincial economy per-formed better than expectedlast year, and so tax revenueto the government was upconsiderably over what wasexpected -- to the tune of al-most a billion dollars.Contributions from three

    Crown corporations alsohelped out big time.Nota-bly, ICBC contributed morethan $400 million morethan forecast and the takefrom gambling and liquorwas $132 million higherthan originally thought.But for all that good

    news, dont expect it to con-tinue in the coming year.Right now, the country

    appears to be in a techni-cal recession, which isntdisastrous but indicates peo-

    ple are likely spending andearning less money.The dramatic slump in oil

    prices is the biggest reasonfor the countrys economicslowdown, and B.C. is moreprotected from the oil nose-dive than other provinceslike Alberta, Saskatchewanand Ontario. But being bet-ter protected does not meanbeing immune to any of thedownsides.Many analysts predict the

    countrys economic growthrate will rebound in the lat-ter half of the fiscal year butnot to the point of shower-ing provincial governmentsin cash windfalls.Now, de Jong has created

    enough elbow room in thisyears budget to afford anykind of minor slide in eco-nomic activity.The project-ed surplus, forecast allow-ance and contingency fundequals close to a billion dol-lars (although this yearsforest firefighting costs willlikely consume the entire$400-million contingencyfund).Of course, as we draw

    closer to the May 2017 pro-vincial election de Jong willno doubt loosen his grip slightly, and not all the way on the governments fi-nances.But that is still a ways off.

    In the meantime, dont ex-pect B.C.s super-cautiousFinance Minister to veerfrom a course he is strong-ly determined to follow, nomatter how rosy last yearsbooks now look.Keith Baldrey is chief politi-

    cal reporter for Global B.C.

    Dear Editor Sixty years ago itmade sense topipe crudeoil to supply nearbyoil refineries.WashingtonState hasproduceda comprehen-sive independent risk analysis about potentialshipping incidents in our shared, getting-busi-er Salish Seawaters.

    OurB.C. government has shied away fromcarryingout a similar independent risk analy-sis for B.C.waters.Why?

    It seems that theB.C. government doesntwant to know, thereby, in essence, givingKinderMorgan their tacit OK for this publicly,much-fearedpotential bitumen spill in ourbackyardor onour beaches.

    Politicians continue todither aboutB.C.spipelines. Someone, please, figure it out. Build

    one, jointly-operatedpipelinesystem fromAlberta,to amoreremoteshippingterminallocation thatoffers openoceanac-

    cess, to theworldmarket.Without threateningthebusy, environmentally sensitivewaters ofDouglas Channel, Burrard Inlet and theSalishSeaand still earn these vital export revenuesfor all Canadians.

    B.C. handles a significant portionof Cana-das resource exports, but B.C. alsomust lookafter oneof its primary industries, includingthose related toour environment andassoci-atedmultibilliondollar tourist businesses. B.C.must carefullymanagehow,whoandwhereanyonegets access to our landandwaters, forall Canadians andour visitors.Carl Shalansky,Burnaby

    Instead of handing overa cheque, why not give aworthwhile charity a piggy-bank?That was the idea behind

    Gateway Casinos initiative,helping LArche Founda-tion of GreaterVancouverimprove its headquarters,Shiloah.Its not uncommon for

    us to give an actual mone-tary donation, Jeff Lee, en-ergy manager for the casino,told theNOW. I wanted todo something a little bit dif-ferent.

    Lee decided to use his ex-pertise and connect withother organizations andbusinesses to help the Burn-aby foundation, which runsresidential homes and pro-grams for people with devel-opmental disabilities.We reached out to a

    large team. I asked them,When was the last time yougot a chance to take a stepback from your busy lifeand to help someone else?And most of them were like,You know what? Its beena really, really long time,he said.In total, 13 businesses

    and organizations got to-gether to provide lightingupgrades, install sensor con-trols, replace the hot water

    tank and refresh the land-scape at Shiloah in Burnaby.All the efficiency upgradesare expected to save thefoundation about $1,200per year, according to Lee.Its like a piggybank that

    just keeps on saving everyyear, he said. Imagine get-ting these electricians to do-nate their time and all theirlabour, and the lightingguys to donate all the prod-uct.We really didnt want tospend any money. I wantedeverything to be donated.The project was done

    with the help of the Burn-aby Board ofTrade, whichprovided Lee with a list oflocal non-profit organiza-tions, he said.We wanted to help peo-

    ple, and we could see theyneeded help there, he saidof LArche. The work thatthe staff do there is abso-lutely incredible.The project began last

    summer and took abouteight months to complete,he added.It took a lot of time, lots

    of conversations, lots of ex-tra time after work on ourpart, Lee said, adding hedlike to do similar projects inthe future but doesnt knowwhen itll be possible, time-wise.He hopes other business-

    es consider taking the ideaand running with it, though.Every day that the res-

    idents and staff are there,they can look around andsee the team that was here,he said. Every aspect ofwhat theyre doing there, ithas us in it.

    The project was well re-ceived by the foundation.We are grateful to be the

    recipients of Gateways gen-erosity. LArche is an inten-tional community of peoplewith and without devel-opmental disabilities whoshare life together in homesand day programs. It iswonderful when partnersin the larger community of-fer support in such practical

    ways,Denise Haskett, thefoundations executive di-rector and community lead-er, said in a press release.The lighting project hasalready made a big differ-ence in our building and thelandscaping has also helpedbrighten up our property.We are thankful to everyonewho has been part of thisproject.B.C.Hydro offered help

    through its Power SmartExpress Program,Ce-dar Rim Nursery suppliedplants, Commercial Light-ing supplied lights andparts, Emco supplied thehot water tank, ESCAu-tomaton installed the hotwater tank, Fortis B.C.helped through its efficientwater-heater program,GELighting supplied prod-ucts, LumaTech did an en-

    ergy lighting audit,MacsII Agencies supplied lightsand sensor, Sancor Land-scaping did the landscaperefresh, Steele Electric in-stalled lights and controls,andTrevor Mang took pho-tos of the group.Gateway Casinos and En-

    tertainment Ltd. was theproject lead and donated$1,000 to the foundationas well.

    16th year, returns to DeerLake Park in Burnaby start-ing Aug. 8, where everyonefrom blues fanatics to lay-persons can go to experi-ence the soulful blend ofmusic from new blood andindustry staples alike.Its grown over the past

    16 years, said Jared Bowles,the marketing coordina-tor for the Shadbolt Centre,People can come for a lowprice and enjoy themselvesall day.Situated in scenic Deer

    Lake Park, the festival playshost to a wide range of tal-ent including, but not lim-ited to, Lee Fields and theExpressions andThe Sheep-dogs of Saskatoon.North Carolinas Fields

    has been an industry vet-eran of 43 years, whileTheSheepdogs won RollingStones Choose the Cov-er competition, beating out15 other bands to win theirspot on the magazines cov-er in August of 2011, a featno other unsigned band hasmanaged to match.Among the many oth-

    er attractions the festivalhas to offer besides music isthe blues market.The festi-val sets aside space for localvendors to sell their hand-made goods to those takinga break from the festivitiesto find a meal at one of thevenues many food trucks,or simply exploring beauti-ful Deer Lake Park.Parking can be found at

    the nearby BCIT campus

    parking lot, with a free shut-tle in place to take concert-goers to and from the fes-tival.Ill be honest, it was a

    turning point, said Bowles,who admitted he only be-came a blues fan from hisexposure to blues fest.But Bowles also said that

    the event transcended thelimitations of just one genre.You dont have to be a

    blues fan; you can just be afan of music, he said.Gates for the festival will

    open at noon, with mu-sic kicking off at 1 p.m. Seewww.burnabybluesfestival.com for all the details.

    Imagine a space wherelocal residents from differ-ent cultures gather to dis-cuss interesting novels withintercultural themes.Theymake connections, sharetheir experiences, and findthey have more in commondespite their diverse back-grounds.Thats the vision Asmi-

    ta Lawrence and Fiona Ste-venson have for Burnabycome fall.The two friendsare starting Culture Chats,a new cross-cultural bookclub at theTommy Douglaslibrary branch.Our goal is to read

    world authors, and hopeful-ly we will have readers fromdiverse countries, Law-rence told theNOW.The group will read one

    book per month and meeton the fourthThursdayof every month, startingin September.The club isfree to join and the librarywill loan out copies of thebooks.Lawrence and Stevenson

    are working in conjunctionwith the library to comeup with a compelling read-ing list.Titles under consider-

    ation include The Eleganceof the Hedgehog by Frenchnovelist Muriel Barbery,The Accidental by Scot-tish author Ali Smith andA Complicated Kindness byCanadian author MiriamToews.Lawrence and Steven-

    son secured one of theVancouver Foundationssmall neighbourhood

    grants through the Burna-by Neighbourhood House.The foundations grant pro-gram is for projects thatbring neighbours closer to-gether, something Law-rence is hoping to do withthe new book club.

    We felt that this wouldbe a community project,to try to engage people inour respective neighbour-hoods, Lawrence said.The Burnaby Intercul-

    tural PlanningTable is alsoproviding some in-kindhelp with promotions, andthe library is providing staffand a venue to host the newclub.Without their support

    it would be very difficult tolaunch this project, Law-rence said. I think it givesa lot more confidence tothose that are looking tojoin the book club, that itwill have interesting booksand it will have the appro-priate support to make it awell-run book club.While the club doesnt

    start until September, Law-rence and Stevenson arestarting to register partici-pants.

    The group is limited to15 people.To join, emailculturechats2015@gmail.com.There will be a special

    event to launch CultureChats onThursday, Sept.17, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.at theTommy Douglas li-brary at 7311 Kingsway.The two have invited Da-

    vid Starr, author and princi-pal of Byrne Creek Second-ary, and poet Shauna Paull,to talk about the intercul-tural experience.The launch is open to the

    public, and theres no needto pre-register.

    A group hoping to savewhat remains of the old in-terurban railway line thatruns between Sapperton inNewWestminster and Cari-boo Road in Burnaby, isinviting people to its firstmeeting on July 23.The Old Interurban For-

    est Preservation Society wasfounded by Rod Drown, theNewWestminster residentwho uncovered the rail bedof the interurban line thatran from 1911 to 1953.Drowns vision is to pre-

    serve the trail and surround-ing forest and add a pavedbike route between the twocommunities, and the firststep is getting organized.Its a shorter and more

    direct route, and not assteep, he told theNOW ina previous interview. Themaximum elevation of theold interurban route is 56metres, while the maximumelevation of the presentroute, which goes up Cari-boo Road and over the topof the hill between Burna-by and NewWestminster, is119 metres.While the society awaits

    official designation fromthe province, Drown anda group of supporters arehosting an inaugural meet-ing to discuss the proposalthe group plans on present-ing to Burnaby city councillater this year.There will also be guest

    speakers, including repre-sentatives from the Burnabyand NewWestminster chap-ters of HUB, and HenryEwert, a historian who haswritten three books on theold interurban rail line.Any-one interested in preservingthe interurban trail and for-est is invited to attend. Cof-

    fee and cake will be served.The meeting is onThurs-day, July 23 at 7 p.m. at theCariboo Heights Hous-

    ing Co-op, 7251 CaribooRd. For more on the societyand its proposal, find themon Facebook by searching

    U.S.championathomeatGiroBurnaby NOW team rider Daniel Holloway won Burnaby 4Day at velodrome earlier this yearTomBerridgetberridge@burnabynow.com

    Daniel Holloway is mak-ing a strong case to becomeBurnabys favourite son.The 28-year-old U.S. na-

    tional road criterium cham-pion won the 2015 Giro diBurnaby in a final sprint tothe finish down HastingsStreet onThursday, postinghis second win at B.C. Su-perweek after beginning theweek with an earlier victoryat the UBCGrand Prix onTuesday.

    Its good to be back(in Burnaby), said Hollo-way, who shared a Burna-by 4Day omnium title rac-ing with teammate JacobDuehring for the BurnabyNOW team earlier this year.It takes a village, you cantdo this without communitysupport.Holloway, who was rac-

    ing with support fromAl-tovelo-SeaSucker teammateAido Illesic, overcame a de-termined challenge by theQuebec-based Silber ProRacing team, which had asmany as six riders attempt-ing to control the race in alead pack with three lapsto go on the 1.3-kilome-

    tre street circuit in BurnabyHeights.(Illesic) was phenom-

    enal, said Holloway afterthe race. Were a fighter-pi-lot team. It doesnt matter ifhe goes down, we go downfighting.The u-turn at the bottom

    of Hastings Street and thenthe uphill into a stiff head-wind all race long hurt anyopportunity for a break-away, said Holloway.It made the race strange.

    It takes a committed groupto do it, he added.Single and mini breaks

    formed throughout the 45-lap race but all attemptswere eventually gobbledup after a lap or two by thegreedy peleton.The Silber teammade

    its move with eight laps togo, but were unable to suc-cessfully hold back the packheading into the 200-metrestraight-away down Hast-ings Street.Gastown winner Ryan

    Roth took the final crowdprime for Silber with a sin-gle lap to go, but faded to51st place in the final sprint.Holloway won the 55-ki-

    lometre race in a time of1:18.52, edging runner-upKristofer Dahl of Calgary,Racing forTeam Smart-Stop, and last-years podiumfinisher Ken Hanson of theUnited Healthcare team atthe finish.I think (Silber) just went

    ahead too early.Theyrelearning, said Holloway.

    They were half a lap away.The win was Holloways

    21st victory of the season,tying the total number ofhis road race wins from lastseason.

    Earlier in Superweek,Holloway also placed ninthat the Gastown Grand Prix.He did not ride in the finalraces atWhite Rock in theweek-long series.

    In the mens Catego-ry 3 and 4 crits, Burna-bys Alan Zoller had a besteighth-place finish at theTour deWhite Rock on Fri-day. Zoller, cycling as an in-

    dependent, started the weekplacing 11th in theTour deDelta on July 11 and thenfinishing in 13th spot at theUBCGrand Prix.

    Its good tobeback (inBurnaby).

    Americantheprimerider inBurnabyHeightsShelley Olds owned the podium at B.C.Superweek, garnering four victories in eight stage racesTomBerridgetberridge@burnabynow.com

    Shelley Olds broughtsomething new to B.C. Su-perweek.The 2012 roadWorld

    Cup and two-time U.S. na-tional criterium champion,racing alone for Ale-Cipolli-ni, put together a dominat-ing week of racing, winningfour separate Superweekraces, including the Giro diBurnaby, while reaching thepodium at all eight stages ofCanadas largest pro cyclingseries.OnThursday, Olds, who

    was sixth at last years worldchampionships in Spain andseventh in the road race atthe London Summer Olym-pics, outraced the peleton tothe finish on the 1.3-kilome-

    tre Hastings Street coursein Burnaby to win the Giroin her second appearance atthe Burnaby Heights event.Its a really good atmo-

    sphere,Olds said after therace, the atmosphere, train-ing hard, the crowd, thewonderful spectators.Olds held off RedTruck

    Racings Denise RamsdenfromVancouver, who wonthe Gastown Grand Prixthe night before and theopening stage of theTour deDelta, taking first place inthe 30-lap race in a time of59.17 minutes.Olds opened Superweek

    with a third-place finish inthe opening crit in Del-ta and was the runner-upthe following night, beforewinning the 105.2-kilome-tre road race at theTour de

    Delta over four-time Cana-dian criterium championLeah Kirchmann ofWin-nipeg.Olds was also third in

    Gastown and second atUBC before taking the Giro

    and a majority of the primesin a dominating hour of rac-ing.The 34-year-old Califor-

    nia rider also won the lasttwo stages of Superweek inWhite Rock last weekend.

    Olds used Superweek asa tune up in preparationfor the womensTour deFrance.The big goal was the

    (UCI sanctioned)WhiteSpot road race.My posi-tioning in the rest of the rac-es was icing on the cake,said Olds. Im here to getthe best sprint training Ican.A 16-year-old Lower

    Mainland rider also racedwell with the pros.Maggie Coles-Lyster of

    Maple Ridge was not lost inthe womens internationalpro field.The Local Ride Racing

    teen placed 25th at the Girodi Burnaby after winningthe womens crowd primewith just one lap to go.Coles-Lyster also fin-

    ished just three seconds be-hind the lead pack at UBCand was 13th overall in Gas-town, before finishing ashigh as sixth at theTour deWhite Rock.Its awesome to race in

    my hometown, where I canget a feel for the next level,said Coles-Lyster after therace. The speed is so goodfor my development.There are so many big

    wheels out there, being ableto do this is a great experi-ence.Picking up half of the

    $1,200 crowd prime at theGiro was also a nice stipendfor one hour of racing.It shows me I can race at

    this level, she said. I wonthat same prime last year,so I felt I had to do it againthis year.

    Lakersalone inthirdBurnaby to the Island for important pair of gamesTomBerridgetberridge@burnabynow.com

    The Burnaby Lakersmade a strong move to-wards securing a spot in theWestern Lacrosse Associa-tion playoffs last week.The senior A Lakers won

    back-to-back matchups, in-cluding a comeback 10-8victory over the Adanacs inCoquitlam on Saturday, tomove into third place on theWLA leaderboard.First star Dane Stevens

    had arguably his best out-ing this season, scoringthree times, including a pairin Burnabys third-periodcomeback, to finish with agame-high eight points.Jason Jones, who gar-

    nered the game-winner withhis hat-trick marker mid-way through the final frame,was also named a game star,with a five-point night.Scott Jones chipped in

    with a six-point effort.The boys had a lot

    of time to refocus and itshowed tonight, said Ste-vens, who had points inBurnabys first five goals.Everyone was really fo-

    cused to get back into it.(The win) is huge.The victory kept Burn-

    aby ahead of Langley inthe overall standings anda game in hand over theThunder who hold the sea-son-series edge over theLakers. Coquitlam, whichalso lost 9-7 to NewWest-minster earlier in the week,remained two points back ofLangley with 12 points.Everyone is committed

    to how were trying to play,Stevens added.Burnaby came out in

    the opening period in Co-quitlam and showed a muchmore creative offence, tak-ing a 4-1 lead at one point.But the Adanacs, who

    have played the role of up-start in a number of gamesthis season, outscored thevisitors 5-2 in the middleperiod to lead by one goalheading into the final 20minutes.Robert Church start-

    ed the Lakers rally with ascreened shot from the rightside. Stevens then tied thecontest 8-8 with a sizzlerthat burned As goalie DanLewis to the inside post.

    Tye Belanger, who gotwhistled for a five-minutepenalty following an ille-gal equipment check late inthe game,made 31 saves forhis league-best seventh winof the season. Belanger cur-rently leads the league witha 7.26 goals against average.At home on Friday, Burn-

    aby sent the lowlyTimber-men back to Nanaimo withtheir third straight loss, fol-lowing a 10-3 win at the BillCopeland Sports Centre.Jamie Lincoln scored five

    times to earn the gamesfirst star. Belanger was alsoon his game, finishing with a.917 save percentage.We want to be moving

    the ball and be real crisp,added Stevens, catch guysout of position, keep ourfeet moving and hitting hardpicks.All that will come in

    handy when Burnaby trav-els to the Island next weekfor a two-game seriesagainstVictoria on Fridayand Nanaimo on Saturday.We have a big game

    coming up and were look-ing to bring this momentumto the Island, Stevens said.

    Golfers intop10atB.C.AmMichael Belle of Burnaby overcame an

    opening round 76 to finish tied for seventhplace at the 113th B.C. amateur golf cham-pionships in Oliver last week.Belle completed the four-day competition

    at the par-72 FairviewMountain coursewith a three-over 291 total tied with SimonFraser University freshman Chris Crisologo.Jared Dutoit of Kimberley ran away with

    the mens title with a 10-under-par 278, in-cluding a pair of four-under 68s to begin

    the tournament.AlanTolusso of Burnaby started the first

    two days of competition at one-over-par be-fore finishing in 40th place with a 302 total.Kevin Li was one shot back of his Burnabycounterpart.St.Thomas More grad KevinVigna

    opened with a two-under 70, but finished in31st place with an even 300 total.Lucas Gatto andAndrew Hennings of

    Burnaby failed to make the cut.
