O

ne man is dead and three people injured after a small plane destined for Boundary Bay Airport crashed 30 kilometres west of Kelowna, near Brenda Mines on Monday (Aug. 13) afternoon. The PA 30 Piper Twin Comanche airplane was flying over Princeton when it veered off course and crashed into a wooded area. The B.C. Coroner's Office confirmed that 30-year-old Vancouver man, Jayson Dallas Wesley Smith, was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not released the identities of the other injured passengers, who were airlifted to Kelowna General Hospital and Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital. According to his Facebook page, Smith was a graduate of Semiahmoo Secondary school in South Surrey, attended BCIT and was an industrial mechanic. The Coroner's Office, Kelowna RCMP, firefighters, and search and rescue teams arrived on the scene of the crash, and it is believed the survivors are a man and two women. They are listed as being––– in seri-

Church gets $1.6m makeover Workers on the nearly 120-year-old building will restore the façade and create more space ADRIAN MACNAIR REPORTER

One of Ladner's oldest landmarks is now surrounded by scaffolding as it undergoes phase one of a $1.6 million renovation and restoration project. Rev. the Major Jim Short termed the beginning of the restoration project last Friday (Aug. 10) of Ladner United Church "auspicious." Two weeks before, Short baptized a newborn baby, and afterward took the water and threw it on the church. The water splashed back in Short's face. "So, both the building and I got a blessing," he said, laughing. Short said the church's building committee has been working on the logistics and fundraising for six

months, hiring Steve Knoblauch of RAM construction Inc. to handle the renovations. This is the second church Knoblauch is working on simultaneously in the village, restoring the old Ladner Baptist church at Delta St. and 47A Ave. "I love old buildings, that's my passion," said Knoblauch, who estimated the United Church project will take about seven months to complete. Short thanked the municipality for waiving building fees and development cost charges worth about $250,000 to assist in the project. The church also has a bell for the first time, donated by Al Hollinger, a member of the congregation and philanthropist who has donated to the local hospital. The bell is cast steel and was originally designed for a school or a farm in Ohio. It

eventually wound up in North Vancouver where it came into the hands of Hollinger. Mayor Lois Jackson and Coun. Ian Paton were on hand last Friday to ceremoniously begin scraping some of the faded paint off the building. Paton, who was baptized in Delta's eastern United Church, said the church has a special meaning in his heart and his mother still goes to that church's services. Ladner United Church opened in 1893 as St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, and served its congregation until 1925 when it unified with the Ladner Methodist Church. The church is asking for taxdeductible donations from the community to complete the project. Reach them at 604-946-6254 or office@ladnerunited.org.

Merciful voyage Former Ladner gymnast bound for West Africa on a charitable medical mission

editor@southdeltaleader.com

adner's Tabitha Goossen is looking forward to a cruise off the coast of West Africa at the end of the month. But don't be thinking of leisurely games of shuffleboard on the Lido Deck, or cocktails in a comfy lounge recliner by the pool. The reality will be assisting with some life-changing medical help for many residents making their way t o C o n a k r y, Philip Guinea, where Raphael Goossen's home for six months starting at the end of August will be the Africa Mercy. It's the world's largest charity hospital ship, a 152 metre long, re-fitted and re-purposed rail ferry— one of four vessels in the Mercy Ships fleet. As its website states, the international Christian charity that was established in 1978 uses its vessels, as well as land-based medical teams, to deliver free health care and developmental programs to the needy—with an emphasis on West Africa. It's a place Goossen, a 22-year-old former competitive gymnast with Delta Gymnastics, says she wanted to be after hearing about the experience from a friend who had recently served aboard one. Goossen, who graduated a year ago from UBC's human kinetics program, says she plans to use her knowledge as one the 450 volunteers aboard the Africa Mercy to make a difference. On the ship she will serve as a receptionist.

"Basically, I will be the first point of contact for pretty much everyone, whether they are patients or other crew members. I will also be qualified to do other medical-related stuff," she says. "They get surgeons, doctors and physios from all over the world to volunteer their time. They provide everything from basic medical care to surgeries for people in West Africa." She will get the opportunity to spend her off hours viewing some of those medical procedures done on the vessel, and is also hoping to use her knowledge with rehab work on patients. When Goossen graduated from UBC she decided to take time off to travel and visit Australia and New Zealand, then came back home to Ladner and signed up to serve aboard the Mercy Ships. "I made contact and they had a place for me," Goossen says. A few weeks ago she had to attend special safety training courses at the Mercy Ships headquarters in Texas. And with her departure date of Aug. 31 rapidly approaching she is busy raising funds to help pay for her stay aboard the Africa Mercy. "We have to pay our crew fees, which goes to maintaining the ship," she explains, adding her goal is to raise $8,000, part of which is to help support the organization, as well as pay for her stay. So far, family and friends have donated around $3,500. Following her stint on the Africa Mercy, Goossen plans to apply for medical school. Donations to her fundraising efforts can be made on her Mercy Ships web page at http://mercyships.donorpages.com/MERCYGIFTS/TabithaGoossen/.

Pub owner says Ladner market costs him money Parking problems the main issue, says Spiros Falcos ADRIAN MACNAIR REPORTER

The popular Ladner Village Market receives thousands of visitors to its streets each summer, but one local business owner says all that traffic is hurting his bottom line. Spiros Falcos, who owns Speeds Neighbourhood Pub, estimated he loses $1,000 on the Sundays the market is up and running because people park in front of his business but don’t come inside. Falcos said he believes other businesses in the area suffer the same ill effects. “The thing that gets me is they [Ladner Market] don’t pay a dollar for parking, they don’t pay a dollar for taxes, they don’t pay anything but they collect everything every time they have a market.” He said he’s annoyed that his monthly business and property taxes cost him $3,000 while the market doesn’t pay anything. That’s not strictly true. According to the business licensing department at the Corporation of Delta, the market pays a $50 fee for the six-day event, as well as a $28 fee for the road closure. A clerk said the fees are standard and applicable to any business or individual holding a similar event. Ladner Business Asso-

ciation (LBA) member Bill McKnight, who owns South Coast Casuals on 48th Ave., runs the market with his partner Marvin Fraser who owns Heritage House Interiors. He says he pays $17,000 a year on property taxes for his business, and that’s already too much. “All we’re trying to do is generate more [business] in the village,” he said, adding other business owners have told him it’s helping. Although McKnight wouldn’t disclose how much money the market brings in and how much he personally pockets, he said profits are marginal after expenses. “It was costing our business a fortune,” he said, adding providing washrooms costs $3,500, while advertising costs more than $20,000. Then there are entertainment and insurance expenses, as well as oversight of 150 vendors per market. Brad Herauf, owner of Boot & Sombrero restaurant, sings a different tune from Falcos. He says sales are up on market days, and although the parking is congested there’s some benefit from market goers who stop in for a bite. “I have to bump up staff on market days. And the business sticks around after the market’s over. I get busy that night as well.”

Experience the best part of summer with your family!

Speed's Pub owner Spiros Falcos says he's fed up with the negative effects the Ladner Village Market has on his Ladner village business. Parking for his regular customers on market Sundays is one of his main concerns. Adrian MacNair photo McKnight says he used to be the president of the Ladner Parking Corporation when the Ladner Business Association formed a company with the municipality for insurance purposes. Parking has always been an issue in Ladner for the 17 years he’s been involved. “We control the vendors’ parking. And that’s all I can control. I can’t tell the public where to park.” One suggestion has been to get parking meters, though McKnight says there’s a cost to businesses for that decision as well. “You can look at things as a hindrance or an opportunity.”

But Falcos said visitors currently ignore no parking and loading zone signs on market says, without consequences. Although several other business owners were contacted by the South Delta Leader, none took up Falcos’ cause. He said that’s because nobody wants to raise a stink. “But to me it stinks lousy.” Falcos said when the market began years ago it wasn’t so bad but the parking now is “out of hand.” The Ladner Village Market is scheduled for two more dates: Aug. 26, and Sept. 9. reporter@southdeltaleader.com

Many recipes can claim to have the message of love baked right into the mixture of ingredients. And the one Paula Lloyd has adopted certainly fits the bill. Her easy-to-follow directions for the Anzac (Australia New Zealand Army Corps.) biscuits certainly have a history of conveying that sentiment. Made from ingredients that will not spoil readily, the chewy combination of oats, coconut and Lyle's Golden Syrup, were the choice by many women sending care packages to their loved ones stationed overseas during the Second World War. "I got the recipe from my mother-inlaw whose husband was in the war," says Lloyd, who runs the SolutionCo location in Ladner Village that helps educate cellular phone owners on how to use their devices.

Packed away in a tin, Lloyd said the biscuits can stay fresh for up to three weeks. She has been making them for the past 31 years and is a favourite of her husband Bruce who is not a big fan of chocolate, but enjoys something sweet. "I'll tell you, if you want to cheer someone up, I can make these and give them to next door neighbours, and they're cheered up," Lloyd says. It's the buttery, sweet, but not-toosweet flavour with just the right amount of crunch that rounds out into a pleasing treat, Lloyd says. "I don't think they'll be slotted into the health food section, but if you have one or two, they're pretty satisfying," Lloyd says. —Philip Raphael

Anzac biscuits INGREDIENTS 1 cup rolled oats 1 cup plain flour 1 cup sugar DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Combine the butter, treacle or golden syrup and water in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat. When the butter has melted, stir in the soda and mix with the dry ingredients. Drop teaspoons of the mixture on a greased oven tray or tray lined with oven paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

SkyTrain too costly The ongoing SkyTrain versus light rail debate continues in the Lower Mainland which is curious because elsewhere modern LRT made SkyTrain obsolete over two decades ago. Has anyone at TransLink or the SkyTrain Lobby noticed that no one builds with SkyTrain anymore? Over 33 years being on the market, only seven have been built. Compare this with over 150 new light rail lines being built during the same period! It's not SkyTrain, rather its the

or have beards, but it is their right in this great country to do so if they wish. The state cannot start telling people how to dress and look. Most Canadian Sikhs integrate well and are good Canadian citizens. Just like there are orthodox/baptized Jewish, Muslim, or Christian people, there are some Sikhs that wear turbans and have beards. What good would it be if all Canadians looked and dressed the same and walked around looking

like a bunch of clones of each other. Diversity is an essential part of nature and a part of culture. We have seen what the Nazis tried to do with their Aryan nation ideals. They killed the Jews, gypsies, disabled, gays, and everyone else who did not fit in. The silent majority has to be constantly vigilant to ensure we do not repeat the mistakes of history.

notice that conversations happen differently when it’s just women in the room.” This got me wondering j u s t w h a t t h e s e “d i f f e re n t conversations” are about. And why the strong, self-confident women in attendance would be reluctant to have them in the presence of a (shudder) male. Hot flashes? Hair removal from troublesome areas? Sex tips? No, it doesn’t appear so from

the reports given us by the female reporters allowed entry. Historical concerns shared by male and female alike were expressed, and the same non-answers were obtained. So why would the Premier and the Delta Chamber of Commerce violate the B.C. Human Rights Code (sections 3(a) and 7) to set up this gabfest? I don’t get it.

family of driverless light-metros that have been made obsolete by LRT simply because you can operate LRT as light-metro, on a grade separated guideway like Seattle, yet retain the ability to operate as light-rail or a streetcar on the same route if need be. This inherent flexibility of modern light rail made the much more expensive SkyTrain fit for only small people mover type systems. SkyTrain is driverless and being so costs more to operate than LRT because instead of drivers, SkyTrain has attendants, over 250 of them at last count and with

more technical employees needed for smooth operation. Combined with SkyTrain's huge construction costs it makes it a very bad bargain for those who have bought into the proprietary mini-metro. Today, modern light rail has proven to carry more people, with faster, at a far cheaper cost than SkyTrain. Who buys with or even plans for SkyTrain today? It seems it is only the rubes in Victoria, Metro Vancouver and TransLink do.

EDITORIAL

We reap what we sow While we’re unlikely to see an end to the debate about climate change anytime soon, recently we saw firsthand how the human race is impacting Mother Nature. The Japanese research vessel Kaisei was in Richmond for the Richmond Maritime Festival in Steveston, and researchers onboard that vessel brought samples of the thousands of tonnes of plastic polluting the Pacific Ocean. Comprising plastic drink cups and laundry detergent containers to chunks of foam, plastic grocery bags and other man-made products, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches the size of the state of Texas, perhaps even twice as large. Some of the plastic remains recognizable, but others have been smashed to smithereens, turning into a floating toxic cloud of small particles that ocean life appears to be feeding upon. And that means it could be winding up in the food chain, and end up in a different form on your dining table. We are a consumer-based society, and there’s no changing that, but people need to become more responsible in how they dispense their waste. Much of the hundreds of millions of tonnes of plastics produced annually is somehow winding up in the ocean. And that mess desperately needs cleaning up. What’s more, the dangerous chemicals making up these plastics are leaching into the waters, a further invisible hazard. Also on the environmental front, Bing Thom Architects recently released a study about the impact rising sea levels will have on Vancouver. Should the seas rise five metres or more, more than $25 billion worth of Vancouver real estate could be impacted, in addition to the impact on roads, sewers and electrical facilities. City of Richmond staff are currently looking at the city’s own system of dike protection, with the cost of upgraded dikes in the city expected to reach $200 million or more, a cost to be borne over the next quarter century. In a nutshell, we reap what we sow. Think about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch the next time you fail to recycle anything plastic. You probably won’t pay the price, but your children and grandchildren surely will. —Richmond Review

Heritage on the rise

It is taking a community, and a host of timber experts, to raise the Harris Barn ADRIAN MACNAIR REPORTER

L

ifetime Delta farmer Jim Harris has been planting peas, beans and potatoes for more than 50 years, but the 73-year-old is excited to go to his first-ever barn-raising this Sunday (Aug. 19). "I've seen lots of pictures in the old days and how they did it," he says. "And that's why I want to be involved." Jim is planning on being on the pike pole team which will help raise sections of the 112-year-old Harris barn. If you're wondering if Jim's surname and the barn are a coincidence, they're not. The barn was originally built in 1900 by Gilchrist Land & Roberts on Tilbury Island's Hopcott Farm with the help of Norm Harris, Jim's uncle. It was moved in 1940 by Norm Harris and Fred Land to 5561-64th St. in Delta, where it sat until just recently when the Corporation of Delta purchased the historically significant building, had it disassembled timber by timber and moved to a spot near Kirkland House at Hawthorne Grove Park in Ladner where it will live a new life as a public building. Norm ran the farm until he died in April, 1964, the same year the new Hwy. 99 split the farm in

half. Jim took over the farming. "We had dairy cattle when we were young, as everybody did here," says Jim. "I was milking cows when I was 10-years-old." In the '60s they switched to peas and beans, but now the farm is run by Jim's children, Trevor andValerie, who grow mainly potatoes. They had still been using the barn for storing potatoes and machinery up until it was relocated. On Sunday, Jim will help put the pieces back together with 15 other members of the Harris family, as well as other community volunteers signing up for the public, barn-raising event. "Like I said to my kids, this is once-in-a-lifetime," he says. "You're never going to get another chance." Preserving history The Harris Barn is viewed as a remarkably well-preserved piece of agricultural history that the Corporation of Delta stepped in to save at a $600,000 price tag. When landowner Fujiko Kinjo applied in May for a demolition permit to make way for a new house, the Delta Heritage Commission came to council with a proposal to try and save it. The commission, a committee of council tasked with keeping an inventory of heritage assets, noted during a survey that the barn was

in good shape and should be preserved. Kinjo agreed to give up the barn if the municipality would relocate it and provided her with 80 sheets of plywood, water service to the new home, and waive building permit fees, a value estimated at less than $8,500. Ken Kuntz, Delta's director of Parks, Recreation and Culture, said the proposal went before council in May to award a contract of $362,200 to Vancouver Island-based Macdonald & Lawrence Timber Framing Ltd. with approved expenditures of $600,000 for the entire project, to be drawn from the Parks and Public Land reserves. Although reserves hadn't been set aside specifically for purchasing heritage property, Kuntz said, "Sometimes when the timing's right, you just have to take advantage of it." Kuntz further noted it would have been considerably more expensive to create a new building. Delta has also applied to Western Economic Diversification Canada for a further $250,000. The budget will pay for dismantling, relocation, rebuilding, and refurbishment with all modern building, seismic and fire standards. Assembly required The Harris Barn now sits in pieces adjacent to Kirkland House, ready to be erected Sunday. "We have this great partnership established

with Kirkland House (Foundation), where they take the love of labour and put it back into the community. Where they have difficulty is in raising money to buy paint and nails and hardware," said Kuntz, further explaining the municipality understands there is an initial investment, but it will be self-sustaining. The foundation will care for the barn's upkeep under a lifetime contract with the municipality, while rental agreements will generate income for that purpose. Kirkland House is a 1910 Edwardian farm house left derelict for nearly a decade in the late 80s and early 90s, and used mainly as a hangout for teenagers from Ladner and Tsawwassen. Just like the Harris Barn, the municipality bought the house in 2003 following a demolition permit from Genstar Development. Colin Campbell, president of the Kirkland House Foundation, said the foundation is delighted the barn will become a fixture there, adding they've talked about adding a barn since at least 1992. With the farm house, barn and granary, Campbell hopes local farmers will donate old-fashioned machinery to make a genuine rural museum for the region. Although Delta currently uses a 1912 Tudorstyle heritage building as a museum, Campbell

SUMMER TOURS are back!

The Harris Barn (as seen in its original state above) is composed of six major sections. Four sections will be erected prior to the Aug. 19 event, while the north and south ends will be on the ground ready for raising. Five teams will work on the barn-raising: the dead lift team will walk up to the frame and begin lifting it; then the pike pole team will use poles to take the handoff from the dead lift team once the frame is above their heads; then two teams on either side will use ropes and pulleys to hoist the frame up even further; a final team on scaffolding will receive the frame and fasten it in place. All parts of the barn will be backed up a crane so there's no danger of any pieces falling down during assembly. Photos submitted said the Harris Barn's spacious 8,000-square-feet will be able to house some items the museum can't, and bring back other items on loan to Fort Langley. "We would like the property to be a sort of memorial to the agricultural families who helped found this town," he said. Though the barn will look almost the same after the move, the manner in which it was transported may surprise people. "We don't move barns every day, and nor can you go to the Yellow Pages and say, 'hey, find me a barn-moving company,'" said Kuntz, laughing. Delta paid three different companies to give an assessment and cost estimate of moving the barn, but Macdonald & Lawrence was the preferred choice based on their specialization in timber frame and heritage work projects, including Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth's royal residence in the county of Berkshire just west of London. "When the credentials come with a letter from the Queen of England, it's hard to ignore," said Kuntz. Macdonald & Lawrence painstakingly analyzed every piece of wood and provided a comprehensive analysis of the structure prior to winning the bid, which Kuntz said really convinced the municipality they were the right company. One of the company's principal's, Steve Lawrence, said with old buildings it's difficult to have complete certainty about a project until work actually begins, which is why the more the structure is studied beforehand, the more realistic the price and proposal. Originally from the United Kingdom, Lawrence was involved in restoring one of the oldest parts of Windsor Castle following a fire in 1997. The castle's kitchen, which is much larger than the barn, was originally built in the early 1400s with a vaulted ceiling that included a timber frame ceiling. There was even a reception held for the contractors at the project's completion, giving Lawrence the opportunity to shake hands with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Historical significance Although heritage structures in Canada are consider-

Lawrence said the Harris Barn is a very important piece of heritage for Delta, which boasts some of the best agricultural land in B.C. BOOK NOW by calling Nor is he surprised the barn is so well preserved after all these years—the Heritage Advisory Commission rated the barn's condition at 98 out of a possible score of 100—citingWestern Canada for having the most durable timber on the planet. "If buildings are well-constructed and well-maintained, then they don't get wet. If the wood doesn't get www.westshore.com wet, it won't decay," he said, adding wood structures will last hundreds of years if kept dry and well-ventilated. Generally speaking, wood degradation begins with persistent moisture, which can bring fungus and woodWestshore_3x7_0817.indd 1 8/9/12 12:07:52 PM damaging insects. Once completed, the barn's new main floor will be equipped with washrooms, a kitchen, wheelchair lift, and artifact displays, while a second floor mezzanine level will allow up to 200 people to look down on the floor below. There will be skylights on the backside of the roof to add natural light without disturbing the heritage facade.

Quilt Walk and Car Show 2012

Oversized quilts find temporary home Open Space Yoga to showcase collection of impressive works at Chisholm Street location The annual Quilt Walk and Car Show in Ladner Village has plenty for the quilting enthusiast to admire. Numerous store windows display fine examples of the work. But those quilts which require a larger area to be show in all their glory have a special place. And this year, there is a new venue. The interior of Open Space Yoga has traditionally been home for this, but reconstruction work to the century old, historically significant building on Delta Street has meant that both the yoga studio and oversize quilt display be move temporarily. Michael Rudd, owner of Open Space Yoga says that he was fortunate to find room at Freeflight School of Dance (4942 Chisholm St.). "It's just two blocks away from our regular home and right across from Speed's Pub," Rudd says. "And we have a big space here to hand the oversized quilts." As well, some of the older, more fragile antique quilts that would not stand up well in the direct sunlight of a storefront window display will be shown at the temporary location. To help those who may find themselves searching for the bigger quilts at the traditional

Quilt Walk and Car Show 2012

EDITOR

If it's possible to "feel" the vibe of love for a car you'd swear it happens when you get a group of owners in one place to talk about their cherished rides. That was the case recently when the South D elta Leader met up with three local automobile enthusiasts who are regulars at the annual Ladner Quilt Walk and Car Show that gets underway right in the heart of the historic village on Sunday (Aug. 19) morning. While their cars may be of unique vintage, make and type, Steve Wilkins, Ray McGowan and Dave Falcon each cast a similar glow of pride. Much of Wilkins' chat about his 1933 Ford Tudor hotrod is based on the story about how he acquired the lowslung, green machine. " My w i f e ( D a w n ) bought it for me as a gift about eight years ago," he says, adding it wasn't

Most people who hear the story about the car ask if she's got any sisters," Wilkins jokes.

Quilt Walk and Car Show 2012

Oversized quilts find temporary home Open Space Yoga to showcase collection of impressive works at Chisholm Street location The annual Quilt Walk and Car Show in Ladner Village has plenty for the quilting enthusiast to admire. Numerous store windows display fine examples of the work. But those quilts which require a larger area to be show in all their glory have a special place. And this year, there is a new venue. The interior of Open Space Yoga has traditionally been home for this, but reconstruction work to the century old, historically significant building on Delta Street has meant that both the yoga studio and oversize quilt display be move temporarily. Michael Rudd, owner of Open Space Yoga says that he was fortunate to find room at Freeflight School of Dance (4942 Chisholm St.). "It's just two blocks away from our regular home and right across from Speed's Pub," Rudd says. "And we have a big space here to hand the oversized quilts." As well, some of the older, more fragile antique quilts that would not stand up well in the direct sunlight of a storefront window display will be shown at the temporary location. To help those who may find themselves searching for the bigger quilts at the traditional

Quilt Walk and Car Show 2012

EDITOR

If it's possible to "feel" the vibe of love for a car you'd swear it happens when you get a group of owners in one place to talk about their cherished rides. That was the case recently when the South D elta Leader met up with three local automobile enthusiasts who are regulars at the annual Ladner Quilt Walk and Car Show that gets underway right in the heart of the historic village on Sunday (Aug. 19) morning. While their cars may be of unique vintage, make and type, Steve Wilkins, Ray McGowan and Dave Falcon each cast a similar glow of pride. Much of Wilkins' chat about his 1933 Ford Tudor hotrod is based on the story about how he acquired the lowslung, green machine. " My w i f e ( D a w n ) bought it for me as a gift about eight years ago," he says, adding it wasn't

Most people who hear the story about the car ask if she's got any sisters," Wilkins jokes. Wilkins explains the brother of a childhood friend had the car in storage for several years and Dawn got to talking one day with the owner's wife and asked if he'd ever part with it.

Wh e n t h e an s we r came back with, "sure" the pair made a deal and Dawn one day presented her husband with the keys. "I didn't recognize what the keys were for and it turned out to be this car," Wilkins says, adding that since he was a young boy he's had a love for cars, and this was his favourite in the street rod category.

years after trading it for a 1935 Ford Cabriolet. "It (Ford) was a project car, and I restored this (Firebird) one," Falcon says modestly. Actually, Falcon not only brought the Firebird up to its current show car running condition, he even restored the interior and painted the body by himself in his own garage. "Nobody else has touched this car but me," he says. "It was in good condition, a California car, clean no rust, all original and just needed a rebuild, restoration and new chrome." The project was completed five years ago and one of it's crowning touches is the 8-Track tape deck in the centre console. "It's Jim Croce," Falcon says smiling, adding he enjoys weekend summer drives, mostly to local shows. McGowan says what he enjoys most is the classic lines of the deep, Chrysler green, 1967 Dodge Coronet 500 that he's owned for the past seven years. "I found it in Ladner," he says. "It had been sit-

This style of gas sand pan was very popular several years ago and there is a lot of interest in updating them but unfortunately the answer is “no”. You can clean the logs, refresh the sand, and add glowing embers but these appliances were designed to be operated with the sand base and pre-made logs by the manufacturer. Changing this configuration can create problems in the combustion of the gas and subsequent problems of overheated gas valves or poor drafting up the chimney. The intention of these sand pans was to have the convenience of an easy-to-light fire without the use of wood. They were never designed to be a heat source. Because the gas codes require the damper to be fixed open and should never be closed, having doors installed onto your fireplace opening will allow you to minimize any cold downdrafts that may occur. Please remember that these doors must be open to some extent to let the fire breathe from the room while exhausting up the chimney. Feel free to stop by The Richmond Firebox to see the newest version of the decorative gas log sets or, if you truly need heat, a wide selection of heat efficient gas inserts.

and expertise, to perform Strata Reserve Fund Studies or Depreciation Report Work?

A:

Although there are several groups of professionals who are capable of performing reserve fund studies/depreciation Reports and reserve fund study panning services, appraisers specifically share an interest in real property knowledge, building and improvement expertise whether it is construction, maintenance, management or valuation of the physical state of condominium corporations. Appraisers can identify value impacts of well kept and managed strata complexes as well as strata complexes that possess deferred maintenance issues. One of the very first groups providing Depreciation reports in the early 1970’s were insurance appraisers. Appraisers perform Depreciation Report analysis as an adjunct or addendum to insurance appraisals in some cases. In the Case of Campbell & Pound Appraisers, the firm always includes a savings to the client in the form of Insurance Appraisal Service and updates in conjunction with the Depreciation Report. Appraisers are uniquely qualified to perform Depreciation Reports as their education, training, and expertise involves not only investigation, analysis and replacement costing of building components and improvements, but also the financial analysis and projections of financial performance in real estate investment analysis. Appraisers are well versed in depreciation analysis of buildings and improvements, which is directly applicable to the life cycle analysis in Depreciation Report Studies.

Bluetree Homes and Wesgroup Properties announce The Brewery District

Brewing up ‘an exciting ... place to live’ Bluetree Homes and Wesgroup Properties are teaming up to bring the Brewery District to New Westminster. Located in historic Sapperton, directly connected to SkyTrain and beside the Royal Columbian Hospital, the Brewery District will offer something for everyone. “We believe that the Brewery District will be an exciting and vibrant place to live, and that it is an important part of the future of New Westminster,” says Bluetree President Ben Taddei. “We are pleased to become a part of this community and the vision set out by Wesgroup, with the development of its residential buildings.”

The first high-rise tower will have 130 suites, and will start sales this winter. “A strong and reputable builder, Bluetree Homes will bring exceptional value to this exciting next phase at the Brewery District, and we are excited to welcome them to this vibrant community,” says Gino Nonni, president of Wesgroup. Eventually the development will include approximately 750 homes, space for almost 100 new businesses and the new TransLink and Transit Police corporate headquarters, which are currently under construction.

European-style living

Leave the car behind at Morgan Crossing by Kerry Vital

When you live at South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing, loneliness is a thing of the past. With more than 60 shops and services right outside your front door, including Winners, Steve Nash Sports Club and Thrifty Foods, there is literally something for everyone, and you’ll rapidly run out of excuses for being a couch potato. Creating a community feel is the core of the entire concept, says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. Developed by Larco Investments, the company behind the Village at Park Royal, Morgan Crossing has the feel of a European-style village. One of the advantages in living in Morgan Crossing is its easy walkability and proximity to nearly everything you would need on a day-to-day basis. With shops, restaurants and fitness right outside your front door, it won’t take long to run your daily errands. “You can go in your pajamas and your slippers if you want!” laughs Woolley. Larco has been very successful in creating a village feel when you walk into Morgan Crossing, and Woolley says that there is a wide range of demographics buying homes, from 19-year-olds just starting out to seniors downsizing. “If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” Woolley says, adding that when you walk out your door, you’re almost guaranteed to meet someone that you know. The homes at Morgan Crossing are chic and modern, with generous patios and balconies, electric fireplaces and hardwood laminate floors throughout the main living areas. The kitchens feature European laminate cabinets, soft-close drawers (no more door slamming), granite and silestone countertops and an elegant glass or mosaic stainless-steel backsplash. The bathrooms are perfect for relaxing after a long day, with chic porcelain and ceramic tile flooring, granite and marble countertops and roomy tubs with hand-set ceramic tile surrounds. There are many different floorplans available, ranging from one to three bedrooms, some with dens. With the number of plans available, you will have no trouble finding the perfect home for you. Looking to be right in the middle of the action? Finding a home on the main street would work for you.

Perhaps a mountain view is your style? Morgan Crossing has several homes with that gorgeous scenery. “The biggest draw is the village,” Woolley says. “You’re not spending time going to the disparate pieces of your life ... it’s a more sustainable lifestyle. We don’t get too many people driving between stores.” One of the great things about living in Morgan Crossing is the variety of community events that are held frequently, including car shows, outdoor movie nights and festivals. The community is “so vibrant and interesting,” Woolley says. With the warmer weather on its way, he expects that the outdoor walkways will soon be bustling. Homes start at $234,900. For more information, visit morgancrossing.ca or call 604-582-1336.

If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies.

There are plenty of things to do in Morgan Crossing, from checking out the latest styles to grabbing groceries for a casual dinner party. The homes at Morgan Crossing, including The Summit House, top, are elegant and modern, with plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

OBITUARIES

PETERSON, Dean Thomas The world is poorer today, for it has lost a gentle soul. Dean Thomas Peterson left his world of suffering and began his next journey on August 8, 2012. He was 64 years old when he died of cancer. He was born October 20, 1947, to Wendell Peterson and Jean “Tommy” Thomson Peterson in Lewiston, Idaho. He graduated from Lewiston High School, and attended the University of Idaho. Dean was affiliated with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He served his country in the United States Army as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. It was a war fought by the young, and Dean often commented “they called me ‘the old man,’ and I was 23.” During that conflict, he served extensively as flight leader – “Yellow One” – and was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, among many other decorations and honors. When he returned home, he moved to Canada, and continued his career as a helicopter pilot, eventually cofounding the Ladner-based Union Helicopters. Union specialized in fire-fighting and helicopter logging. Dean also flew archeological missions in the far north, where his expertise in “how things look from the air” led to discoveries of ancient native campsites. In his semiretirement, Dean worked with Winning Trophies, of Ladner. Dean was closely affiliated with Ladner Branch #61 of the Royal Canadian Legion, where he forged many lasting friendships. His constant companion was Sultana, a remarkably intelligent and wonderfully trained dog. As Dean explained it, Sultana presented him with a conundrum: “the problem is really three-fold: she’s smarter than I am, she’s faster than I am, and she knows it.” Dean is survived by his siblings Phil (Pam) Peterson, Doug (Judy) Peterson, Wendy (Bill) Armstrong, and Darlene Storey; his nieces and nephews; his many cohorts at the Legion; and his close friend, Vicki Huntington. Dean’s life will be fondly remembered during a gathering at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #61 in Ladner, on Saturday, August 25th, at 1 p.m.
