‘More talk needed on budget’ Coun. Corisa Bell not happy with increase or process by Ph i l M e lnych uk staff reporter

A postal worker delivers mail along 206th Street in Maple Ridge on Thursday.

Home mail delivery scrapped Canada Post will switch to all community mailboxes

by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

Canada Post will phase out home delivery of mail in urban areas over the next five years in a new bid to cut costs. The Crown corporation cites declining use of postal mail – a billion fewer pieces were delivered last year compared to 2006 – as households shift to online bill payments and other digital communication.

Most newer suburban neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland already have community mailboxes, but the remaining one third of Canadian households that still get mail at home will switch by 2018. Over the next five years, Canada Post will eliminate between 6,000 and 8,000 positions, but expects most will be shed by attrition, as nearly 15,000 workers are expected to retire or leave voluntarily during that span. “With its current labour costs, Canada Post has a much higher cost structure than its competitors in the private sector have,” Canada Post said in a press release. “This is simply not sustainable.”

The reduced workforce and other changes are expected to save a combined $700 to $900 million per year. A Conference Board of Canada report last spring found Canada Post would face losses of $1 billion a year by 2020 without major reform. Starting March 31, the price of stamps will also go up from 63 to 85 cents each if bought in booklets, or $1 for individual stamps. Canada Post was unable to provide a breakdown of how many households in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will be affected by the changes, nor does it have a timeline for implementation.

Older neighbourhoods south of the Abernethy Connecter in Maple Ridge still receive home delivery. Wednesday’s announcement came as a surprise to the postal workers’ union, which learned of the changes from media. Cindy McDonnell, a union representative for the Pacific region and who delivers mail in Pitt Meadows, received panicked phone calls from members as they heard the announcement. “This is the busiest time of the year and now everyone doesn’t know what’s going to happen with their jobs,” she said.

Council hasn’t done a good enough job trying to scrimp and save and spare taxpayers a 3.25-per-cent hike in taxes, says Coun. Corisa Bell. She voted against third reading of the 2014 financial plan Tuesday, saying people on fixed incomes can’t afford it. Council’s decision came after a day and a half of staff presentations and a one-hour public question session that evening on the plan that brings an average increase of 3.25 per cent for municipal purposes. After utility hikes are added in, the increase is 3.75 per cent, or another $100. Bell didn’t like hearing staff present the budget on Monday, then having to vote the same day on whether to forward it to its Tuesday meeting, where it received third reading. See Budget, p16

Foster, go-to guy for local seniors S tor y by Neil Corbett

B

ob Foster didn’t intend to become an awardwinning volunteer when he started going to the Maple Ridge Seniors Centre. He was just after a hot lunch.

Foster was at loose ends. He had retired from the Bank of Montreal, his children were grown up, and his wife had passed away. “I was scratching around for meals, and someone told me they served lunch at the seniors centre,” he recalls. He became a lunchtime regular at the facility on 224th Street, and it wasn’t long before the volunteers there put him to work. “At that time I was one of the younger seniors. I was being a parasite – going for lunch and nothing else,” said the self-effacing Foster. He started off with the phone committee, dialing up members in those pre-email times. Then it was providing rides for seniors who needed hospital visits, or a lift to some of the centre’s special events. A good organizer with good people skills, Foster soon found himself asked to help in many volunteer circles. Now he’s at it full-time. “It just snowballed. I actually enjoy it a great deal. When you start to volunteer, you do it as a matter of conscience. But as you get into it, you realize you’re pretty fortunate, and other people aren’t, and you want to make a difference.” For some 17 years he has been making weekly visits to shut-ins in the community. He visited one client for 15 years. Generally, he will have three of these clients at a time. “I met a RCMP officer, a minister, a Prairie farmer – a real mixed bag. And I never found one I didn’t like.” It is just an hour a week. He would worry, at first, about what to talk about, but it was never a problem. And the visits, a small effort for the volunteer, are much anticipated and appreciated. “I never realized until much later – seemingly it does make a big difference. In some situations, you’re the only one they talk to for a week. There are some lonely people about.” He’s made some good friends, near the end of their lives. “The sad part of this whole operation is that they do die, and you become very attached.” Foster is the chair of the leadership committee of the Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie Seniors Network, and has been since the group started in 2008. The Seniors Network is one of 10 seniors planning tables funded by the United Way of the Lower Mainland with the goal of improving the health and well being of seniors locally. Foster is also a member of the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society and Seniors Helping Seniors. The latter provides transportation, friendly visits and peer counselling to its members. For the past eight years, Foster has also been vice-president of the Community Living Foundation, the financial arm of the Community Living Association for people with devel-

Over the years, he has contributed his time to evaluating procedures and finances for Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows Community Services, Maple Ridge Community Living Society, the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society and The Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie, Seniors Network. Titles don’t do credit to the good work volunteers do. At this festive time of year, Foster is involved with the Seniors Helping Santa program. There are 150 seniors who regularly access the Friends in Need Food Bank, about 100 women and 50 men, and the RMSS is getting them each a Christmas sack. There is chocolate, knitted goods, playing cards and “various odds and sods.” Local grocery stores donate the ingredients, and students at Maple Ridge secondary baked 1,800 pieces of shortbread for the bags. Students from Eric Langton elementary created Christmas cards for them. “Some of the cards are quite touching – they [the kids] are empathizing with the people getting the cards,” said Foster. “This sack stuffing is pretty fun.” He helped start the intergenerational garden, and publish the Seniors Resource Guide. Through Community Services, he helped develop the Better at Home program to support seniors who choose to live in their own residences rather than a senior’s facility. The pro-

gram was piloted in Maple Ridge four years ago, and its template is now used in 80 B.C. communities. Recently Foster received a Senior Leadership Award from the Simon Fraser University Gerontology Research Centre. It has been given out each year since 2001, to recognize the contributions B.C. seniors make as volunteers. It is handed out each year at the SFU Gerontology Research Centre’s annual conference. “Bob is a true leader in the field of community development. His experience in business and banking proves invaluable in his volunteer roles. But it is his heart – worn most frequent-

ly on his sleeve – that sets him apart from his peers,” said Seniors Network coordinator Heather Treleaven. She said Foster is now closing in on his 80th birthday, but remains a key resource to local volunteers. “He’s the go-to guy for any seniors in the community who have programs and are looking for solutions. He’s a very sharp fellow.” The Seniors Network staff nominated Foster for the award. “He’s very quiet and very modest,” said Treleaven. “We wanted to make sure he’s recognized for all the things he does.” The Cheer Packages include a dozen shortbread cookies baked by the culinary arts students at Maple Ridge secondary. Each senior will also receive a Christmas card made by a student from Eric Langton elementary. The Craft Ladies at RMSS contributed hand knitted items like scarves, toques and mittens. Volunteers from the Mental Health Association also made an array of scarves. The Panorama Senior Ladies donated hundreds of dollars worth of small gifts and treats, while residents from local care homes Chartwell Willow Senior Living Residence, Greystone Manor, Sunwwood Senior Living Community, and the Wesbrooke Seniors Living Community have donated gift items and food. Maple Ridge Seniors Village provided gift bags. The Ridge Meadows Seniors Society also donated gifts and food.

Some local parents have been so committed to making sure their child gets enrolled in French Immersion, or some other choice school, they have stayed overnight at the school – in early January – to be first in line for kindergarten enrolment Those desperate days, hopefully, are gone. Next month, for the first time, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district is going to a new online kindergarten registration system, one that is locally developed and may be unique in the province. “As a parent who stood outside three times in the rain, I am happy to see this happening,” trustee Sarah Nelson said at Wednesday’s board meeting. Deputy superintendent Laurie Meston said she had fairness and convenience foremost in mind when planning the system. Programs will still be done on a first-come, first-served basis, but using a system where nobody will benefit by sleeping outside a school. “This is expected to be streamlined, efficient and effective,” said superintendent Jan Unwin. No other school districts in B.C. have such a system yet, to the board’s knowledge. Some call their processes online registration, but they amount to emailing the district information, with the paperwork to follow. Unwin said there may be an opportunity for the district to market the software and system, once it is developed and tested. “The hope is this will be a sale-able item,” she said. Meston has been asked why the district doesn’t allow in-person registration at the same time as online sign-ups are being taken. The answer is that the online registration

can be “determined down to the millisecond.” For parents trying to get their child into year-round school, the environmental school, French Immersion or other choice programs, it is important to know that the first-come, first-served system is working. “We’re really trying to make it as fair a process as possible.” Parents will be able to register to be part of a portal in advance, look at the registration form and print it out, so they will be ready with their information. The district will also provide help lines via phone and email. Elementary school libraries will have designated computers, and there will be computer sites at the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows public libraries set aside for kindergarten registration, in order to ensure all parents have access to a computer. The registration can be done from any online computer. Kindergarten registration priority will still be given to children to have a sibling at the school, then to students who live in the catchment area for a the desired school, and next to students who attend daycare in the catchment area for the school. Registration will be open to children who are five years old by Dec. 31. It will open for siblings on at noon of Jan. 15, for choice programs on Jan. 22 and for regular kindergarten on Feb. 4. Registrations will begin at noon, unlike 7:30 a.m. in the past, and close at midnight. Pamphlets about the new process have been printed, and have been distributed to parents. The link to the kindergarten registration process is located at www.sd42.ca/kindergarten-registration. Parents will be able to “test drive” the online registration form beginning Jan. 1, 2014. “This will hopefully be more user friendly,” said Meston

Murray remains chair of school board for 2014, budget trouble in forecast

Expect shortfall of $4.5 million

Mike Murray will return as school board chair for 2014, and lead a group that faces another tough budget year. In the last school board meeting for 2013 on Wednesday, Murray was acclaimed as chair of the School District 42 board of education. “I do, with great humility,” Murray said when asked if he accepted the nomination. “Because this is a super group.” Murray, who retired as District of Maple Ridge’s parks ad leisure services manager, is now in his third year as school board chair. Eleanor Palis was also acclaimed as vicechair. These positions are elected by a silent vote of trustees if more than one person is nominated. Murray offered a year

in review report, which addressed the board’s fiscal challenges. In 2013, the board wrestled with a budget shortfall of $5.66 million. It used a public survey, with 1,000 responses, as well as meetings with partner groups, to guide its priorities in setting the $130 million budget. There were rental rate increases, which saw community groups – including the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts and minor soccer – driven out of gymnasiums. There were also 35 positions reduced across the district, and the board depleted its financial reserves by $1.52 million. “We got it as right as we possibly could,” Murray told the board. For the 2014 budget session, the trustees will need to address “a potential anticipated shortfall of $4.5 million,” Murray revealed. “This is not going to be easy.” Among the highlights in the 2013 year in review:

That was an improvement from 17 per cent who were not meeting

expectations, and just two per cent were exceeding.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Tragic reminder The tragic deaths of two women in two separate house fires in as many weeks in Langley, again underscores the need to exercise extreme caution during the ongoing cold snap — and all winter long. Although no definite cause has been determined in either case, in the first fire, which happened in a four-plex on Old Yale Road on Nov. 28, appears to have been started by either a space heater or a power bar failure. In the second instance, firefighters said that while they don’t know whether the home had a working smoke detector, they did not hear an alarm going off in the house when they arrived. But in both cases, someone lost their life, and this holiday season is going to be a tremendously difficult one for the people they left behind. Of course, tragedy can never be completely avoided and we may never know whether these women’s deaths could have been prevented, but there are steps we can and should all take to minimize the risk of yet another fatality or serious injury. Whether it’s space heaters, fireplaces or candles, sources of heat are also potential sources of danger if they’re not handled with the level of care and respect they’re due. Fireplaces – whether gas or wood-burning — require regular, professional maintenance to ensure they are in proper and safe working order. Space heaters, meanwhile, should only be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never into a power bar. There should also be a minimum three feet of space between the heater and any combustible materials. Every home should, of course, have, at the very minimum at least one working smoke detector – ideally, one in every area of the house where people sleep – with fresh batteries installed each autumn. And burning candles – which many people love to place throughout their homes at Christmastime – should never be left unattended. This is simple advice and we hear it all the time, but in the wake of such tragedy, perhaps it bears repeating. – Black Press

The sacrifice of agricultural land O

ver the years, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge city councils have developed highly ambiguous attitudes towards the agricultural land reserve and related land use decisions. In less polite terms, council members and Sidewinder staff in their respecSandy Macdougall tive municipalities have usually acted in a thoroughly hypocritical manner when it comes to the preservation of farmland. Every industrial and commercial development and most residential subdivisions in both municipalities have taken place only through the loss of once highly productive farmland. There is also the matter of several golf courses, recreation facilities, CP Rail’s intermodal operation, Maple Ridge’s fairgrounds and playfields for kids, as well as the Pitt Meadows airport, all of which are situated on previously farmed properties. Pitt Meadows’ application to exempt an additional huge tract of land on the north side of the Lougheed Highway from the agricultural land reserve flies in the face of recent statements by its city council that it will stand up for the land reserve, a position that appears to apply only to agricultural lands in any jurisdiction other than Pitt Meadows. The Pitt Meadows airport and adjacent industrial development and the city’s

Q

uestion of the week:

works yard encompass more than a thousand acres of once highly productive farmland. But council still claims support for the land reserve. On the Maple Ridge side of the same coin, the Maple Meadows industrial area includes approximately 140 acres that were actively farmed until Maple Ridge purchased the site. More than 100 of those acres was rated Class 1 soil, the highest classification in the province. Council’s view of the site as highly desirable for industrial development and exclusion from the land reserve was hugely influenced by the fact that the municipality owned it all. The land was removed from the land reserve and was subsequently covered by 15 or 20 feet of river sand, but even then municipal council claimed support for the land reserve. When it comes to applications by private land owners, the municipal voice changes.  Down through the years, sanctimonious council members and at least one retired MLA have stood valiantly, if not hypocritically, for the preservation of farmlands, particularly that privately owned. In essence, what we have in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows is the sacrifice of thousands of acres of good farmland to satisfy political and bureaucratic schemes, few of which benefit private land owners. In Maple Ridge, there is further lunacy in schemes and plans to designate scattered and illogical sites for industrial development. Some of these sites are adjacent to existing residential development and other sites are isolated from any

Should highway speed limits in B.C. be increased? Yes: 56% – No: 44%

of the necessary transportation routes and facilities needed to make modern industrial development feasible and successful. At the same time, Maple Ridge has consistently supported its own application to exclude the municipal fairgrounds from the land reserve, while denying other more practical applications for privately owned land. The respective mayors of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows argue vehemently against amalgamation of their municipalities, but none of their arguments make sense. Staff reductions alone would save millions of taxpayers’ dollars, but even greater fiscal and social benefits would result from coordinated land use approaches in respect to industrial development and the future of the agricultural land reserve. Port Metro Vancouver has issued a report stating that there is a critical shortage of land suitable to service the growing needs of the port. If Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows coordinated a joint approach to servicing that need, every local taxpayer would benefit. But don’t hold your breath waiting for any announcements. Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge already share fire protection, police, recreation and regional functions, such as hospitals, parks, water and sanitary sewer. The major thing we don’t share is common sustainable land use goals as good neighbours. Sandy Macdougall is a retired journalist and former district councillor.

This week’s question: Should the District of Maple Ridge apply to officially become a city?

THE NEWS/letters ‘We still call it Haney’ Editor, The News: Re: Maple Ridge to be a city? (The News, Dec. 11) Thousands of locals still refer to areas within the District of Maple Ridge as Hammond Ruskin, Webster’s Corners, Whonnock and, of course, Haney. Why are some local politicians so eager to push aside our heritage in favour of expediency? It would be better to concentrate on holding the line on municipal taxes and reducing crime rather than worrying about a name change. However, if you are determined to push ahead with such a foolhardy endeavour, at least have the good sense to hold a referendum in order to gauge public opinion. Or, better still, think about the Facebook page, the website that has nearly 2,000 members. It’s named, “We call it Haney.” George Clarke Maple Ridge

online comments ‘Wonderful’ decorations Sandra Jones: Re: Old Fashioned Christmas in the downtown (mapleridgenews.com). Maple Ridge has the best Christmas decorations of any place I have seen. I love the nostalgic feel they give to the downtown area – very much like It’s a Wonderful Life.

Copper thieves Mark Waldron: Re: Who steals Christmas lights? (mapleridgenews.com). People looking to steal the copper from the wire probably stole your lights. This is the new world we live in.

Ready for SensibleBC, Part 2 Editor, The News: After 90 days, the results are in – the SensibleBC campaign for cannabis reform collected more than 200,000 signatures, two-thirds of the way to its goal of 10 per cent of voters. The campaign got almost eight per cent in the Maple Ridge-Mission riding and seven per cent in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. In comparison, the successful petitions in Washington State and Colorado got 3.6 per cent over 180 days, without the need to go riding by riding.   Nevertheless, anytime that many people sign a petition calling for change to our drug policy, politicians should pay attention. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservatives are lost to reason; they just want to throw more people in jail for doing something that shouldn’t be a crime. B.C. Premier Christy Clark, on the other hand, could really help the province’s bottom line by making some common sense changes as to how our police do their business. All we need is better leadership. There are a lot of jobs and economic activity at stake. Locally, SensibleBC had more than 75 canvassers and collected 5,400 signatures over the past three months. They knocked on doors, attended events, approached friends, family and

co-workers, and stood at a table on 228th Street, taking questions and signatures. We are proud of every one of them for stepping forward, and most have committed to the next fight, whenever that is. We have a solid foundation to build upon and next time we just have to bring friends. Funny thing is, most were new to any political process and will be a force in the future. We will certainly be encouraging them to stay involved. Along the way, we met lots of people who were grateful that we were fighting this fight for them. But we also met some very fearful and angry people. We were accused of being a bunch of drug addicts, pot heads and criminals who just want to get their children hooked on drugs. Of course, the reality was we are parents, grandparents and honest, lawabiding citizens who want to control, regulate and educate about cannabis so we can keep it away from those same children. Instead of lying to our children about cannabis, we should educate them so they will make responsible choices. Our fight was for adults being able to make decisions without unfocussed prejudice or unjust laws interfering. Prejudice produces a stigma that is

based on fear and ignorance. The most common fear that made the difference locally was from those who wanted to sign, but felt they couldn’t because their boss or the government would find out and use it against them. Prejudice doesn’t trump the incredible medicinal uses of cannabis or the lack of negative effects recreational use has on the individual or society. Sadly, the stigma that is produced through pot-prejudice has kept many people from accessing the medicinal uses. That is the real crime.

“We were accused of being a bunch of drug addicts, pot heads and criminals who just want to get their children hooked on drugs.” To quote Plato “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”. Lastly, thanks to those 5400 people who threw aside the veils of fear and ignorance and by signing embraced hope and knowledge and stepped into the light. Craig Speirs Maple Ridge

Bev Van De Keere wonders why she has to pay for going over the Golden Ears Bridge for medical trips, a fee she doesn’t have to pay if she takes the Port Mann Bridge because she has a disability.

Disabled drivers pay for Golden Ears, get free ride on Port Mann Province gives exemptions, but not TransLink by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter

It’s not easy when you’re getting on in years and you have to get to frequent appointments to maintain your health. It’s particularly not easy when you’re Bev Van De Keere and your health-care providers are in Langley and you have pay a toll to drive across the Golden Ears Bridge to see your doctors, while others with disabled passes cross the Port Mann Bridge for free. “Sometimes we go three times a week, sometimes it’s once, or maybe not at all. It just adds up,” said Bev’s son, Phil Van De Keere. “She’s going to her regular doctor, her cardiologist, her eye doctor, this doctor, that doctor.” Bev, 78, moved to Maple Ridge from Langley a few years before the Golden Ears Bridge opened in 2009 so she could A-LIST be closer to her son and so that he could take care of her. But that meant leaving their health network on the south side of 3 3 0011 av TTHHEE NNEE W the Fraser River.

highest monthly price paid in Golden Ears Bridge tolls was $133. If they were to take a 40-minute detour, however, and drive west across the Pitt River Bridge and along the Mary Hill Bypass to the new Port Mann, they’d cross for free. But his mom doesn’t know Surrey as well and most of her appointments are in east Langley. “I don’t like her in the traffic. I’d rather pay more money than have her get killed,” Phil explained. Sometimes he’ll drive through Abbotsford and Mission when he has to fill up for gas. According to Treo, which manages the Port Mann Bridge tolls for the provincial government, people with disabilities pay no tolls. Its website explains that exemptions from the $3 tolls are given to people with disabilities, as recognized by the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation. People with either a physician’s certificate or a Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefit also can get an exemption. Applications must be filled out and exemptions renewed yearly. But Phil got nowhere when he asked TransLink for the same thing on the Golden Ears Bridge. The crossing is built, financed and operated by the transportation authority. “I said, ‘Why isn’t TransLink doing that?’ They said, ‘We don’t do that.’ “It’s not a lot out of their pocket for seniors who are handicapped.” $

A court has tossed out an alibi offered by the mother of a murdered Maple Ridge woman, claiming she never travelled to India to threaten the family of a man her daughter secretly married. Malkit Kaur Sidhu’s daughter Jassi was killed in June 2000 in the Indian state of Punjab after she married rickshaw driver Sukhwinder ‘Mithu’ Sidhu against the wishes of her Canadian family. Sidhu, 62, and her brother, Singh Badesha, are fighting extradition to India, where they’ve been charged with conspiracy to commit murder. In a decision released Tuesday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Gregory Fitch dismissed an application by Sidhu to include evidence from her son Sarwan. Indian authorities allege after discovering her daughter’s marriage, Sidhu travelled to India in late 1999 or early 2000 and threatened Mithu’s mother and his friends. In an affidavit, however, Sarwan swore “he is sure” his mother never visited India during that period as he was living with her

trary body of evidence presented by [Indian authorities],” wrote Justice Fitch. “In short, the evidence … does not exclude the possibility that she entered India in 2000, but her passport was not stamped as it should have been.” The daughter of wealthy blueberry farmers, Jassi Sidhu met her husband Mithu on a family trip to India and carried on a clandestine long-distance romance with him until they were secretly married in 1999. While in India, the 25-year-old and her husband were attacked by a gang of men. Jassi’s body was found a day later in a ditch, her throat slit. Her husband survived the attack. Sidhu and Badesha are accused of orchestrating Jassi’s murder from the family home, located across from Jerry Sulina Park in Maple Ridge. Jassi’s husband, his mother Sukhdev Kaur, uncle Sukhdev Singh and friends Joginder Singh Bhindri and Surinder Singh Singla are set to travel to Canada to testify at the extradition hearing, which began in May. Snippets of their evidence were detailed in Fitch’s ruling. They include allegation that Jassi’s mother and uncle offered one friend five Lakh rupees (around $8,000) and volunteer to take him to Canada if he was willing to say that he was not a witness to Mithu’s wedding.

Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Professional Part 5: Cleaning Procedures

Contributed

(From left) Sylvia Mol, a nurse at Ridge Meadows Hospital, with George Ferguson of the Loyal Protestant Association, and Kristina Murray and Laura Cherrille of the hospital foundation.

Gain, loss for RMHF A long-standing supporter of Ridge Meadows Hospital passed away after his group made a $23,000 donation to help the maternity ward. George Ferguson of the Loyal Protestant Association died just hours after making the donation to help purchase infant warmers. “He has been such a long-standing supporter of the hospital and we were shocked to hear of his death,” said Laura Cherrille, executive director of the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. His group’s donation will help the hospital cope with the rising number of births in the community. “Upon birth, a newborn must undergo extensive examinations and tests. In order to provide the ideal environment for newborns and health care workers, we are equipping Ridge Meadows Hospital with state-of-the-art infant warmers,” Cherrille added. Each one costs more than $20,000. The donation from the Loyal Protestant Association will purchase one warmer help with that of another. “With this equipment, the newest members of our community are provided with optimal care and comfort as they enter the world.”

In our last article we discussed using a pre-spray followed by a rinse, run through the wand, to remove soapy cleaning solution residue from the carpet. However, simply running a rinse through the wand is NOT sufficient to remove all that sticky residue, nor does it provide the thorough flushing needed to extract all the dirt and grit embedded deep in your carpet. The only way to get out all that residue, soil, and grit is by thorough cleaning methods. Most carpet cleaning companies will overlap their cleaning strokes slightly (say, perhaps a 10 percent overlap) as they’re cleaning your carpets. Worse yet, some use a method where half your carpet is only getting one cleaning pass! Note: In the carpet cleaning business we refer to a “stroke” as either the forward (pushing) movement of the wand or the drawing (pulling) movement of the wand. It can, however, refer to a combination of a pushing AND a drawing motion, which is what we refer to below. A much more thorough method is to overlap strokes by as much as 50 percent. In this method, the carpet is rinsed going forward and when drawing back, and then on the next stroke the wand overlaps half of the previous stroke. It can be summed up simply in saying: EVERY SINGLE FIBRE OF YOUR CARPET GETS RINSED FOUR TIMES!!! With this method of cleaning, in effect, your carpet is getting rinsed twice as much as it would be by the companies who only overlap 10 percent, and up to four times more than the companies who use the one pass method. The 50 percent overlap means the cleaning process takes twice as long as the more common 10 percent overlap and three to four times longer than the single pass method. In this case, of course, the longer time it takes to clean your carpets is indicative of the thoroughness of the method. Just this past Monday we were in a home where two of us spent over five hours cleaning carpets and upholstery. The homeowner said the last company he had in his home had one technician completely finished in just 90 minutes! True story! When it comes time to spend your hardearned dollars on a carpet cleaning company, wouldn’t you prefer that they take the time to give your carpet a deep, thorough cleaning, rather than have the company in and out before you know it?

Pitt cracking down on ‘fill farming’

SHRED, SHARE STOKED 2013

Concerns over increase in ‘for-profit’ deposits of soil on farmland by Monisha M ar t ins staff reporter

SKAtEBOARD COMPETITION

Pitt Meadows is beefing up a bylaw to discourage fill farming in the city. The crackdown follows concerns voiced by the city’s agricultural advisory committee, which reports an increase in “for-profit” deposits of soil on farmland. Acting director of operations

December 15 6:00-9:30 PM Ages 13-18 years

Terry Fryer said city staff have also noticed an increase in applications. The city is now streamlining its rules to include the regulation of soil removal and deposit operations under a single bylaw. Under the draft bylaw, proposed operations involving more than 15 cubic metres of material will require a soil removal or fill deposit permit. Operations of 500 cubic metres or more will need council authorization and those within the agricultural land reserve must apply to the agricultural land commission for a nonfarm use application before the city will issue the permit.

Permit holders will also have to keep a daily log of the soil truck in and out, the companies involved and where the soil is coming from. In order to enforce the draft bylaw, staff recommends increasing the number of violations from one to twenty with fines ranging from $200 to $500. Fryer said the draft bylaw means tighter control of the operation. “It addresses the larger operations in particular,” he added, noting that dumping soil can have detrimental effects on the quality of farmland as well as drainage.

Harris Road, is currently designated as highway commercial and agriculture. Staff are now seeking to change its designation in the OCP, a document that guides long-term growth in the city, to mixed employment and highway commercial. The mixed employment area, totalling 30.3 hectares, will permit a range of use from light industrial business to hotels and conference centres. The city also plans to create a

buffer area between the Dorado residential subdivision to the east and potential development to the west. The OCP changes are set to go to a public hearing Jan. 21. Once that’s complete, the city will submit a formal request to Metro Vancouver to amend its regional growth strategy. In the meantime, staff will begin crafting a traffic calming plan for Old Dewdney Trunk Road and an interchange at Harris.

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Student staircases were ‘nice surprise’ by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

What to do with 12 sets of stairs? The Garibaldi secondary carpentry instructor had his Level 1 students build a flight of stairs as a learning exercise. “There are lots of skills kids learn in doing that, both hands-on skills and geometry,” said Christopher Yendall. The school has all the stairs it needs, however,

so this year a dozen flights needed to find homes. Yendall used to volunteer with the North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association, which provides rides for people with physical, emotional and developmental challenges. “It’s a great form of physical therapy for kids who are challenged in certain ways,” said Yendall. He knows that lifts are necessary to help

get some clients onto horseback, and sure enough, the organization wanted a set of his stairs, so a client could ascend up to the height of the horse and drop onto the saddle. They’re perfect, said Yendall. There’s a railing on one side of the stair cases for the clients to hold onto, and the other side is open to allow for assistance. “It’s almost like that’s what they were de-

signed for.” Emily Felgnar, the program coordinator for the riding association, said lifts generally cost money and involve government grant applications. The association has indoor lifts that can accommodate clients who are physically disabled, but the staircases will be used outdoors for the more able-bodied riders. “It was on our wish list,” said Felgnar. “It’s a nice surprise.”

A man was arrested in connection with an assault on a postal worker in Maple Ridge last week, but released without charges. Ridge Meadows RCMP confirmed they had “a person of interest” in custody, but are still gathering more evidence before investigators forward a report, seeking charges, to Crown. The 67-year-old was delivering mail to a community box outside a gated housing complex on 116th Avenue at 239th Street around 1 p.m. Dec. 5, when he was approached by two men. The suspects demanded mail and his keys. One of them then struck the postal worker in the head with a retractable baton.

After the assault and theft, the suspects fled off with a load of mail in a greyish green SUV. The postal worker has since been released from hospital and the union reports he will be off for the next two weeks as the attack happened just before he was due to take his vacation. “I can tell you the carriers in that office were pretty shaken up,” said Cindy McDonnell, a union representative for the Pacific region. The assault on the postal worker was the second in two days. On Dec. 4, another carrier was attacked by three dogs and had the window of his van smashed while delivering mail on 12th Street in New Westminster.

“People are nervous now,” McDonnell added. Police have increased patrols near community mail boxes and McDonnell said carriers have been told to be extra cautious. “If something feels wrong, don’t go there.” • Investigators are asking for anyone who has any information about the assault on the postal worker to call police:  604-4636251. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477, or leave a tip online at www. solvecrime.ca. CrimeStoppers will pay a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

munity meal program, which serves more than 10,000 meals a month. “We have a lot of catching up to do,” said Darrell Pilgrim, director of the Salvation Army Caring Place. “Our mail-out is also down – with just about 50 per cent of funds raised.” There are still about 1,000 volunteer hours to fill for the Kettle Campaign, with 13 locations in Maple Ridge

and Pitt Meadows. Volunteers can still sign up by phoning the kettle coordinator, Anne Burgess Clark, at 604-463-8296, ext. 106, or emailing bellringer@ caringplace.ca. Volunteers can also sign up online at www. caring place.ca/2013kettle-campaign. You can also text Hope1016 to 45678, and a $5 donation will be made to the Kettle Campaign.

still has the final say on whether to actually proceed with it. “None of these are etched in stone,” Daykin said. “In my view, there are lots of opportunity,” for input. Katherine Wagner, with Facebook group Council Watch, said the question session was more for information rather than an exercise in seeking public input. “I don’t recall them ever asking for input.” She also questions the timeline of council approving the budget a day after it was presented to council. “I would really like to have debate and discussion.” While councillors have had the financial plan for a few weeks, Wagner says it should have been available to the public for a longer period before it was passed. “I think there should be multiple opportunities for input.

Instead, Bell says council needs another working session, without senior staff present, to pore over the reams of information presented. Most people accept they have to pay taxes and don’t mind doing so, provided they’re getting value for money paid and that they can afford to pay more in taxes, she said on her website. “What I am hearing from the public across all economic spectrums is we can’t afford further tax increases,” Bell wrote. “The way our society is operating is that we have double-income families that are paying 42-percent of their annual income to taxes at one level or another.” Council in May told staff to reduce the increases to 3.3 per cent in 2014. Previously, the hike for next year had been set at 4.05 per cent. Staff in turn came back with a lower increase for

municipal purposes – only 3.25 per cent. Mayor Ernie Daykin said that final reading of the plan doesn’t happen until late January and that people still can speak on the budget before then. People can also speak about the budget throughout the year. “This is the work, in the last two or three days, is the culmination of eight to 10 meetings or updates.” Councillors have also had the budget document for the preceding three weeks, he noted. Council could have jammed that process into a week in November. “Nothing is unusual or different than in previous years,” Daykin said. Bell has earlier questioned building the new $6-million Fire Hall No. 4 in north Albion, saying the district can’t afford it. But the project has been delayed for several years and council

decided an awful lot of things in a short period of time.” People need time to absorb all the information, she added. “I would like to see more formal requests for input and people’s opinions.” She also agreed with Bell that budget discussions should be videotaped. “It should be recorded and available.” Finance general manager Paul Gill said the public can input any time of the year on budget items. “Council has seen this material several times over the past year. Council has had this material for a long period of time.” He pointed out all councillors approved the guidelines for lower taxes in the spring. “All the discussions in May were public,” Gill added. “We don’t have any secret discussions on the budget.”

‘Grinch comes to mind’ Post from front

“At this time of year, it seems like a ridiculous thing. Merry Christmas, but the Grinch keeps coming to mind.” One concern being raised is the security of community mailboxes, which are often broken into. “They are putting more mail out there in unsafe places,” said McDonnell, who also laments the loss of customer service. Just last week, McDonnell was delivering mail to a senior in Pitt Meadows and noticed his front door open. She called police, who later determined the senior had been evicted by his landlord. “Because we see these people all the time, we recognize these things,” said McDonnell. “We are the last point of contact for some people and now it’s going to be gone. SFU Gerontology professor Gloria Gutman also worries about anyone with disabilities and people suffering from dementia picking up mail from a community box. She says these people will be the victims of this cost-cutting measure. “Getting to a mailbox could be a real problem and there is no way a person with dementia could go get mail,” said Gutman. “They could get lost on the way.”

Christmas in small rural town Looki ng Bac k by Leslie Norman

W

hat would a child in Pitt Meadows, back in December 1913, have dreamed of for Christmas? One thing is certain, unlike their parents, they were not dreaming of becoming a newly incorporated municipality. Just like today, they wanted toys and sweets and time off school. In reality, in a small, farming community that was living through a world economic depression, most were probably getting a bit of clothing, some fresh fruit and candy and a small toy or book. But these children had access to catalogues from Woodward’s, Eaton’s and Sears Roebuck, and they could dream. The luckiest of children might hope to receive a “Magic Lantern.” Designed as early slide projectors, these devices used a small oil lamp or candle to project an image from a slide on to a wall, and for children the content was often cartoons or fairy tales, such as Cinderella. These slides were sold separately in boxes of up to 10 strips, which could be pulled slowing by the lantern’s light

source to show a story. But with a price of up to $7 per unit and $0.25 or more for a box of slides, this toy was not under the tree for most children. That year was also the time of the Children’s Annual, another popular Christmas gift. Published since the early 19th Century, these annuals displayed wonderful artwork on their front covers and their insides provided generations of children with advice, thrills, adventures, games and brain teasers. Considerably more reasonably priced item than the Magic Lantern, these books were more likely to end up under the tree on Christmas morning. Often, little girls would receive a working, toy-sized model of items their mother had at her disposal, such as sewing machines, stoves and wash tubs. Boys fared about the same with toy saws, hammers and mechanical tin toys. As always, children in Pitt Meadows for Christmas 1913 would receive clothing. Socks, mitts, underwear and sleepwear were common, but if a little girl was lucky, a muff and matching hat might be under the tree. Or that special doll, with a

rubber one costing less than $0.20, and a 20” walking doll going for more than $4. A carriage to transport it in was as much as $6. A lucky boy had a plethora to receive from, including working model steam engines, quality pop guns or a coaster wagon, depending on the budget of the parents. And what about that tree? The Christmas tree tradition had been in Canada since the 1840s and was likely established in this community. But in 1913, while Pitt Meadows had plenty of trees, it lacked electricity. Glass ornaments from Germany could be ordered from a catalogue and candles could be used to light trees. More likely, though, the tree was unlit and was decorated with simple homemade ornaments from paper and wood, with the addition of cookies, candy and items from nature. Merry Christmas from the staff and volunteers at the Pitt Meadows Museum, open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons through Dec. 22.

Back in 1913, children received toys and books. Pitt Meadows Museum

s we begin the holiday season in earnest, it is easy to be overwhelmed with all that needs to be done.  Over the years, the traditions and expectations have grown and the subsequent work for families have grown, as well. The elderly have a similar split view to the holidays. It is often a time when family gets together, and so it’s a time for the elderly to connect with children, grandchildren and friends.  That works well for those who are mobile

Winter Weather: Planning to arrive alive

‘‘

’’

Top ten winter road trip tips: 1. A full night’s sleep ahead of a long drive is important. 2. It’s also a good idea to let a friend know when you’re leaving and the time you expect to arrive. 3. Fill the windshield washer bottle with seasonal cleaner and carry an extra container in the trunk. 4. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses – glare from snow can be hard on the eyes. 5. Wear (warm) clothes that allow good movement to steer and operate the foot pedals. 6. Bring water plus non-perishable food supplies on longer trips. 7. An emergency (first aid) kit. 8. Check the weather forecast, road conditions and for road closures on your route before heading out on a long trip. 9. Good winter tires are mandatory on most high-elevation BC highway routes during the winter. 10. If you must drive in bad weather, it’s a good idea to refuel when the tank drops below half full. If the car breaks down or gets stuck in the snow, having engine heat until help arrives could be important. Useful winter driving web sites: drivebc.ca, icbc.com

The new Jeep Cherokee just won its category (best new SUV under $35,000).

A worthy new Jeep Cherokee By Zack Spencer

T

he Chrysler group is on a tear these days with month after month of consecutive growth and awards to back it up. Who would have thought a few short years ago that Chrysler, of the Detroit Three, would be in second place in Canada, just slightly behind Ford and well ahead of General Motors. This has been achieved by filling a few holes in their full-line offensive. For example, until a year ago, Chrysler didn’t have a compact car, now they do with the Dodge Dart. Most surprising is that the strong sales have established without a vehicle to compete in the fastest growing segment, the compact SUV. Now, with the introduction of this all-new Jeep Cherokee, Chrysler has something to take on establish players like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The new Cherokee has only been on sale for about a month, but sales for the Jeep brand are up more than 34 per cent over last year. In addition, the new Jeep Cherokee just won its category (best new SUV under $35,000) as adjudged by the Automobile Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC). Looks Some might not remember the old boxy Cherokee that was sold in the 1990s; it was a very simple design that appealed to diehard Jeep enthusiasts. This new Cherokee is trying to win over new buyers, not just the Jeep faithful. It might look a bit odd at first, but when you are in its presence, the design actually grows on you to a pint that it has a futuristic, very modern twist on an iconic nameplate. What you don’t see is the Italian Alfa Romeo platform that this Cherokee shares with the Dodge Dart. This provides a solid basis that produces a wonderful on-road experience and ruggedness for off-road duty. The base front-wheel drive model starts at $23,495 and is the lowest priced vehicle in the compact SUV class. The all-wheel drive model is also a value leader and starts at $25,695 Inside The Cherokee is covered in soft-touch materials, comfortable seats and a large touch screen in the centre of the dash for connectivity. The base screen is 8.4 inches

on the $29,995 Limited model. In addition, all models get a second 3.5-inch screen embedded in the instrument cluster that is fully programmable and provides custom readouts. The back seat isn’t huge, but the seats again are contoured nicely and provide good comfort. They also slide forward to elongate the cargo area if larger objects need to be carried. Drive Chrysler is showcasing brand new technology in this compact SUV, providing good fuel economy and value. All trim levels come standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission –the first vehicle on the planet to come with this many cogs. Having a chance to drive it with the base 184hp 2.4L 4-cylinder through the canyons outside of Malibu, Calf., I can report that the transmission is so smooth and refined that the driver forgets there is so much at work. The up side is the Cherokee is capable of 9.6.L/100km in the city and 6.4L on the highway. The 4-cylinder engine is a great choice for commuters and the handling is crisp and sure-footed, more like a sedan than an SUV. The optional V6 engine is the first application of the 3.2L V6 Pentastar engine. The bigger 3.6L is used across the Chrysler family, but this newly developed, smaller version is wonderful value as it is only $1,300 more to equip it on any Cherokee, from the least expensive FWD model to the most expensive AWD trim. For $1,300, you get 271hp and a lot more grunt for passing and highway runs Verdict The starting price is the best on the market, the technology is second to none, and the ride is smoother and quieter than the competition and the interior class above. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

The Cherokee is covered in softtouch materials.

Need to speed is not universal disabused me of that notion, an equal number agreed. Guenter Hoernig of Penticton asked: “What would you gain by, say, increasing the limits by 10 or 20 km/h? A half an hour earlier in Vancouver? Well, if you don’t have that extra 30 minutes, perhaps you should take the plane. “I don’t even understand why the public is consulted on this – as any results coming forth from them tend to be purely based on emotions. The safety of the highways should be left to traffic experts and scientists ... ” Janet McGarry warned: “NASCAR-inspired highways will only lead to more fatalities.” Currently, 100 km/h is the maximum on most freeways, while 110 km/h is posted on the Coquihalla Highway and parts of the Okanagan Connector. Variable speed limits are used throughout Europe and seem effective. The maximum limits are posted on overhead electronic signs, which change to reflect environmental conditions and congestion. It is a recognition that speed alone is not the major cause of road carnage, but excessive speed combined with over-driving the weather/road conditions does kill. The provincial government is currently reviewing posted limits. Jack Dubberly believes Victoria should hike them forthwith.

Variable speed limits are used throughout Europe and seem effective.

‘‘

’’

“If the roads are better engineered, cars are safer ... then why not increase the speeds to that average comfortable speed that everyone is traveling at when the police are not looking?” The more cynical of our readers, dismissed the current posted speed limits as being artificially low and designed not for safety reasons, but as a way of generating cash for the government through fines. Transportation Minister Todd Stone will give B.C. residents an opportunity to express their views directly in a series of eight regional public forums set to run between now and January 24, 2014. • For details of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review, go to http://en-

Mazda tops in Canada’s Top 12 for 2014 By Bob McHugh

M

azda bagged three of 12 “Best New” 2014 model year category awards, just announced by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. The triple award sweep (Mazda3, Mazda3 Sport and Mazda6) had to taste extra sweet as Mazda only had three entries in a field of more than 50 vehicle entries. This also positions Mazda with three (of the final eight) contenders for overall 2014 Canadian Car of the Year. The 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year Award was also narrowed down to four “Best New” category award winners: the stylish all-new Jeep Cherokee (SUV/CUV under $35K); great value Kia Sorrento (SUV/CUV $35K to $60K); luxurious Acura MDX (SUV/ CUV over $60K); and the tough-as-nails GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. AJAC award wins in both Best New Small Car categories (under $21K and over $21K) gives the Mazda3, in various forms, an impressive total of nine trophies in 10 years.

The Mazda6 is also a repeat winner, with previous category wins in 2009, 2005 and 2004, its introductory year. Both the new Mazda3 and Mazda6 are now SKYACTIV-equipped vehicles and offer outstanding fuel economy. This was also a good awards event for General Motors, the recipient of two AJAC trophies in very different vehicle categories. In addition to the Best New Pickup Award, the 2014 Corvette Stingray was also voted the Best New sports Performance Car.

‘‘

Mazda’s triple award sweep had to taste extra sweet as Mazda only had three entries in a field of over 50 vehicle entries.

’’

“This is a monumental step for the Chevrolet brand and the first all-new Corvette, since the first Corvette ... we couldn’t be prouder of it,” Rob Assimakopoulus, GM director of marketing, said during his acceptance

speech. The other double-award winning manufacturer was Kia. The Best New Family Car under $30,000 award went to the revamped Kia Soul. A new and softer rendition of its offbeat five-door wagon-like design, plus numerous other refinements helped the surprisingly practical Soul out-perform the competition. The new Kia Sorento notched an even more impressive victory, as it was achieved in a highly competitive light-luxury SUV/CUV category ahead of some renowned competitive products. The AJAC awards are based on a methodical secret ballot voting process that was completed by more than 80 journalist members following a five-day, handson driving event known as “TestFest,”which was held earlier this year in Niagara Falls, Ont. Same-day, back-to-back evaluations were performed on handling, performance and off-road courses (where applicable), and on public roads. The accounting firm KPMG tabulated the ballots and the results were kept

The Best New Family Car under $30,000 award went to the revamped Kia Soul. confidential until the public announcement. The full voting result and comparative data will be posted to the AJAC website (ajac.ca). Consumers are urged to use

the data as a resource buying guide when shopping for a new vehicle.  The twelve category winners now go on to compete for the top honour of being

either the 2014 Canadian Car of the Year or the 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. The overall winners will be declared on Thursday, February 13,

2014 at the beginning of media day at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Drives-U-Crazy Roof of snow Watched a guy labour for 20 minutes the other day scraping the ice from his windshield, side and rear windows. Then he jumped in his car and took off without paying any attention to the snow on the car roof. I figured that 10 minutes into his journey the snow would slide down onto his windshield, obscuring his vision and thus putting him at risk of collision with some other innocent road user.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

RenoMe! with FortisBC contest names grand prize winner By Kerry Vital

One Vancouver Island homeowner has a lot to celebrate this holiday season after winning the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo won the $10,000 prize for her outdoor space, which she can now put towards the renovation.

“I was leafing through the local paper one day and the ‘RenoMe! with FortisBC’ ad seemed to jump out at me off the page,” Tolsma says. “I couldn’t ignore it. I’m not usually a contest enterer, but I just had this weird feeling ‘you can win this contest’.” Over 7,000 votes were cast, and Tolsma is very excited.

“I’ve never won anything, really, so this kind of win is unbelievable!” she says. “I don’t think it will really sink in until I see my backyard at the end of the reno process.” Currently her backyard is only usable in the summer months, so Tolsma is hoping to be able to use her space year-round after the renovation. She and her daughter enjoy spending time outdoors, so the yard was the first place she thought of when she heard about the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. “We plan to do lots of outdoor living year-round!” she says. “I’m envisioning plenty of weenie roasts and toe warming on those chilly spring and fall evenings when we

would normally have to retreat indoors.” As part of the contest, Tolsma received a rendering of what her space could look like from Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. Gallop included a hot tub heated by natural gas and an outdoor natural gas fire pit in her design, as well as space for entertaining outside. The design also features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” Gallop says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” Gallop notes that many clients are now asking for natural gas

appliances in their homes; a trend that she believes will continue. “Natural gas brings warmth,” she says. “It obviously brings physical warmth but also a warm ambiance.” Among the things Tolsma will receive as part of her prize is a gift card from Coast Wholesale Appliances. One person who voted in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest will win a $500 gift card of their own. A natural gas barbecue is one of the most popular appliances for a backyard. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, as you’ll never have to deal with running out of propane or charcoal. It also allows you to cook with different temperatures at the same time and control the heat more easily. Tolsma also plans to install a fire pit powered by natural gas. “I can’t wait to have the fire pit installed,” she says. “I see it as the focal point of the outdoor living space that Sarah Gallop has designed. Our house is under 1,000 square feet, so extending the living space outside is going to be awesome.” “It’s kind of like camping in your own backyard,” says Gallop. “You get the informality of outdoor space with the convenience of natural gas.” And convenient it is. Natural gas is available at the push of a button, so you no longer need to wait for your fireplace or cooktop to heat up or worry about running out of propane for your outdoor barbecue. Tolsma is also planning to purchase a new patio set as well as some new greenery to accent what she already has. The second and third place finalists, Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack, will each receive $2,000 towards their own renovations, for their kitchen and living area respectively.

Getting rid of unwanted house guests By Robert Prince

Y

ou’ll probably be seeing plenty of guests in your home over the holidays, but there are some house guests nobody wants to have pop in this winter. Trouble is, these pesky visitors don’t wait for an invitation, they just show up. We’re talking rodents, of course, and just as you’re looking to stay all snuggly warm in your home as the temperature drops, rats and mice are looking for the same thing – under your roof. Brett Johnston, from Assured Environmental Solutions, says rodents are a problem all year long. But when the cold and rain come, and the leaves start dropping to expose their usual hiding places, they tend to head indoors just like humans. “They want to go where it’s warm and they can get in anywhere,” says this 22-year veteran of the pest wars. “A juvenile rat can get through a hold as small as half an inch, and a juvenile mouse can get through one as small as a quarter of an inch.” Which means the first step in any battle against a rodent invasion is to seal up your home, says Josh Lowe of Aggressive Pest Solutions. You do that by combing every inch of your home, looking for holes or cracks through which a rodent can penetrate the exterior of your home. Key places to examine are any places where pipes or wires enter the building, to ensure they were caulked correctly. Foam won’t necessarily stop them because they can chew through that, says Lowe. Galvanized wire mesh and steel wool are good ways to block such access points because they can’t be chewed. Check your soffits to ensure they are tight and sealed, and go up onto the roof to look for places where problems like siding not being properly sealed can occur. Roof rats and squirrels can easily get in through the roof, especially if you have open air vents that haven’t been screened properly, and a roof rat can jump as easily as a squirrel from a nearby tree. The difference, Johnston notes, is that the rats tend to do their jumping at night when you’re not watching. The next step in prevention, says Johnston, is to remove hiding places that are near the house.

Service technician with Aggressive Pest Control Ltd., Branden Markus sets up an exterior bait station to catch mice and rats.

Woodpiles stacked up next to your home and other clutter leaning against the building are prime hiding places because they’re warmer thanks to the heat given off by the house. Also, keep bird feeders far away from your home, Lowe adds. They’re basically buffets for hungry rodents of all kinds, not to mention bears. Oh, and if you’re storing seed in a shed, keep it sealed up in a plastic tub. If you end up with an infestation of rodents, the first step is to determine whether you have rats or mice. The first sign is usually droppings, and you can easily tell which you have by looking at the size. Rat droppings are typically the size of jellybeans, says Johnston, and mice droppings are the size of rice. How you tackle the wee beasties depends on

whether you have mice or rats, he offers. Due to their small size, poison is still considered a useful way to get rid of mice in the home, because even if they die in the walls you don’t get much in the way of a smell. Poison is rarely used on rats that have made it indoors because when one of them dies in a wall, you are guaranteed to notice, and there’s nothing you can do about it except wait for it to go away. Snap traps are the preferred method for killing rats, says Lowe, and they work well with mice, too. Just bait them with a very small amount of peanut butter and they should do the trick. “Don’t use too much peanut butter or the mice and rats will just nibble at the edges and never spring the trap,” he adds. There are other tools to use, such as glue traps,

but no matter which method you decide upon, safety is a primary concern as each method comes with potentially dangerous side-effects, especially when children and other animals are around. Always use the products as directed, Lowe warns. “We have a saying in the industry,” says Johnston. “’Sanitation is the best pest control.’ Keep your home and yard clean and you greatly reduce the chance of rodents.” Naturally, if you find the problem is something you can’t tackle on your own, both of these pest control experts are more than happy to suggest expert help is just a phone call away.

Dezura qualifies for provincials The Grant Dezura rink was among six teams to secure berths to the 2014 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship at regional qualifiers held over the weekend. Team Dezura, with fourth Kevin MacKenzie, second Jamie Smith, lead Kevin Recksiedler and alternate Jay Peachey, all have BC championship experience. The team finished first in the Kamloops Crown of Curling. Dezura is a former B.C. junior champion. The 2014 Men’s Curling Championship will take place at the Vancouver Curling Club from Feb. 5-9, 2014.

Marauders beat B.C.’s top team The provincial basketball rankings will need to be rewritten, after the Pitt Meadows Marauders upset the top-ranked W.J. Mouat Hawks of Abbotsford on Tuesday night. The Pitt defence gave nothing away, as they beat the number one team on the new quadruple A circuit by a score of 66-59. Pitt’s big man Graham Smith got the first triple double in two decades, as he put up 11 points, 11 assists and 20 rebounds. Generally Smith pumps in points, but on this Maple Ridge resident Alex Rowley has enjoyed a great season with the SFU Clan, who made it to the NCAA second division final four tournament. He was just named to the All West Regional Team. Contributed

occasion he was hitting the boards and dishing passes, to accomplish the rare and impressive statistical feat. Mark Ashamalla and Enzo Tadeo were on the receiving end of those passes, and they put up 12 points and 11 points respectively. Next game for the Marauders is the North Shore Tourney this weekend. They will not play another home game until they face St. Thomas Aquinas on Jan. 4. • The Pitt senior girls basketball team beatGarib-

aldi 55- 38 in league action. Sammy Walton led the team with 21 points. •The Marauders junior girls won an exhibition game against Southridge secondary 55-20. Shania Eyre, Chelayna Mathias and Tory Peterson all had double doubles. •The Grade 8 boys’ basketball team defeated Maple Ridge Christian 52-16 in their first league game of the season. Ryan Severinski led the way with 15 points, and Christian Marguze chipped in 10 points.

Rowley earns more soccer kudos with the SFU Clan The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has announced the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire All-West Region team and a Maple Ridge player was among three Simon Fraser University men’s soccer stars to earn spots, all on the first team. Alex Rowley of Maple Ridge and teammates Chris Bargholz (Fuessen, Germany) and Magnus Kristensen (Stavenger, Norway) made the squad. The trio led the Clan to the “Final Four” in the NCAA Championship tournament that saw Si-

mon Fraser bow out to the Carson Newman Eagles with a 3-2 loss in the semi-finals in Evans, GA last Thursday. SFU clinched their second straight NCAA West Region Championship and fourth consecutive Great Northwest Athletic Conference crown during the 2013 season. Rowley appeared in 22 games for the Clan in 2013, starting 20 of them and recording two goals and seven assists while earning a spot on the first team of conference allstars.

The Maple Ridge Ramblers opened Grade 8 girls’ basketball league play at Garibaldi secondary on Tuesday with a 65-2 win over the host Rebels. Kirsten Senchyna was a standout for the Rams with 16 points and seven steals. Taylor DeAdder added 12 points and six steals. “The team has had a great start to the season,” said Maple Ridge coach Don Herman. The Ramblers remain undefeated at 7-0, including 1-0 in league play. They were to host the Westview Wildcats on Thursday.

Some healthy holiday advice for eager eaters F

or most people, the coming few weeks is a time of celebration with family and friends that involves gathering at office parties, house parties and family get-togethers, Kinected and invariably Kerry Senchyna involves eating and drinking. It is also a time when it is easy to put on weight if one is not careful and sometimes let this looser behaviour roll on through into the new-year and snowball into a girth growth. The average person gains two or three pounds over the holidays, and that weight is rarely lost. But if you are prepared and go into this holiday season with a plan, you can completely enjoy yourself and not feel like you missed out on anything. Here is just a short list of tips and ideas to help manage your weight over the holidays. • Be aware of what the highcalorie foods are. In small, moderate amounts these foods won’t run up the calorie count too much, but if you’re not aware of the content of certain foods, things can get away on you in a hurry. Seasonal high-calorie foods include egg-nog, shortbread, cheese, gravy, alcohol, dips, nuts and of course desserts. Be judicious with these foods and have a little extra veggies and fruit. Beware of many food items deemed ‘low-fat’ (like eggnog and dips) as these are often not reduced much in overall calories and we tend to overeat these because we think we are getting a break in the calorie count. • Before arriving at a party, don’t skip a meal, so that you can indulge yourself with extra goodies. You are much more apt to go overboard if you feel famished.

Players Born in

Having a little extra water before arriving and drinking water throughout the party helps to curb your appetite. You could even try having a small amount of food an hour or two before going. Protein helps satiate you more than most foods. Lean meat such as chicken or fish is fairly low in calories, so you could try one or two ounces before-hand. We all want to be polite to the host of the party, but you don’t have to overindulge to do so. You don’t have to finish every scrap of food on your dinner-plate. Eat until you feel full and then push away the plate. Anything past that point is just going on your waistline. You could offer to take home any leftovers that way you are able to enjoy the delicious food, or something you hadn’t tried, for a few more days. • You don’t have to sample every piece of food on the buffet table, either. Try one or two of your favourites and admire the rest. And use a small plate size when eating any appetizers, or better yet use a napkin since you can probably only get one piece of food on it at a time. • Exercise is always important, so keep it up over the holidays. If you are not currently exercising why not start getting into an active lifestyle with some seasonal winter activities like ice skating or try something new like snowshoeing on one of the local mountains. You could even build-in an activity like skating or bowling into a holiday party event. If you do slip-up and go overboard, don’t beat yourself up. Use the experience to learn and improve for the next time around. The creeping waistline happens because of years of mistakes and opportunities unlearned. Most of all, enjoy the season and don’t deprive yourself, but be creative and don’t let convention and tradition limit your choices.

KOEMSTED, Pearl Elizabeth (nee Crowe) was born on January 26, 1930 and left us suddenly on December 9, 2013. Our beloved Pearl is survived by her partner, Al Swaine, sisters Marg Graham and Doe Crowe, and children Ted (Anne), Wendy (Al) Gillespie, Ken (Janice) and stepchildren Lynne Roming and Dave (Marie) Hoeft, 14 grandchildren and 12 greatgrandchildren. Pre-deceased by brother Bill Crowe (Penny) and grandson Paul. Pearl was a long time resident of Port Coquitlam where she owned Family Ceramics and will be remembered for teaching many classes at Wilson Centre. She moved to Chase where she spent 22 years being involved with countless clubs and groups. Pearl recently returned to Maple Ridge to be close to her family. A Celebration of her Life will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at Victoria Hall (”Dogpatch” 3435 Victoria Drive) in Port Coquitlam. Service at 2pm with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to your local Royal Canadian Legion Branch would honour her memory.

DALRYMPLE, Anne Grant (nee Brown) March 8, 1919 November 12, 2013 Our mother and grandmother passed away peacefully in Maple Ridge, BC, on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at the age of 94. Anne was the beloved wife of her late husband, Grant; devoted mother to her two sons. Bill and Bob (Alison), and grandmother to her treasured grandchildren Robert, Leslie, Billie, and Ryan, and her 6 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her loving sister Margaret, brother Jack, and many cherished nieces and nephews. Anne is predeceased by her siblings Harold, Eddie and Mary. Anne came to Canada from Scotland in 1919 with her family and settled in Portage Le Prairie, Manitoba. There, she served in the Canadian Armed Forces in the Canadian Women’s Army Corp from 1937 to 1943. After meeting her husband they moved to Glenn Drive in Port Coquitlam where they raised their family. Anne was a founding member of the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation and spent countless hours fundraising, volunteering in the gift shop and assisting on the Rehabilitation Ward. She was an avid curler with the Port Moody Curling Club and a proud member of the Ex-service Women of the CWAC. She later moved to Maple Ridge for her retirement years. We will remember Anne for her love of life, music and dancing, sewing, her witty sense of humour and her generous spirit. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her during her long life. Anne’s family would like to thank many wonderful caregivers on Ruskin Hill at Baillie House in Maple Ridge for their kindness, loving care & support. There will be no service at Anne’s request. Those wishing to do so may honour her memory with a donation to your favourite charity.
