District starts voting message Wants to increase turnout for Nov. 15 municipal election by Ph i l M e lnych uk staff reporter

Those who relied heavily on social media in the 2011 municipal election may have lost votes, according to the District of Maple Ridge’s manager of corporate communication. “They were counting on social media to be a bigger deal than it was,” Fred Armstrong said as Maple Ridge readies to roll out its campaign to increase voter turnout Nov. 15. Those who used a variety of means to get their message out in 2011 were the people who had the greatest success, he added. As well, changes in the way Facebook shares posts means fewer people are seeing those by other people – unless someone has paid along the way. Armstrong bases that on the district’s own experience.

Teachers are going to be docked pay for their job action, as a partial government lockout has been put into effect. If they go ahead with rotating strikes next week, as planned, they will lose 10 per cent of their pay. The B.C. government is locking

out teachers in response to their escalating job action, beginning Monday. A traditional lockout would prevent unionized employees from working. This one will restrict their work, and reduce their pay. However, a full lockout would come into effect at the end of classes for most schools, on June 27, if no deal is reached. The local teachers’ union representative says the government’s actions threaten summer school, the marking of provincial exams, after-school sports events and even graduation ceremonies. “It’s baffling,” said George Serra,

Educator honoured for inclusive education Laurie Meston was a unanimous choice winner

Camp provides child care during strike

by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

A

cting school district superintendent Laurie Meston is being honoured for her part in including children with special needs in the classroom. Meston has been recognized with a National Inclusive Education Award from the Canadian Association for Community Living and Inclusion B.C. Meston is the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District’s director of student support services, and the veteran school district administrator was asked to fill the void left by superintendent Jan Unwin’s departure earlier this year while the board undertakes a selection process to find her replacement. “It’s a surprise – I knew nothing about it,” Meston said of the award. “I feel very privileged and very honoured.” She was nominated by the Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living, and was the unanimous choice winner. Early in her career, Meston worked in institutions for the mentally handicapped in Kamloops and the Lower Mainland. “People were being warehoused, and not valued,” she said. When she became a teacher, it was natural for her to want to change a system that had similarly “warehoused” students with special needs. “That has been in my soul since I started teaching,” she said. At one time it was a controversial topic. There was an argument that students who couldn’t learn at the same pace as a mainstream class would be better off in a special needs classroom. Meston always felt that just watching everyday interactions between

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Laurie Meston is the acting superintendent and director of student support services for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district. other students, talking and moving through their daily life, is good for even students who don’t appear to be functioning at the same level. “Even if all you’re doing is being mentally stimulated, at least you have that,” she said. Meston recalled an occasion where a boy who was physically and mentally handicapped was watching other children outside, playing in the sand. She stopped the fun for a minute, and asked the students how they could include him. After she vetoed the idea of getting him out of his chair into the sand, the students soon had sand on his board, playing with him, with toy trucks driving up his arms. It was good for the boy, and it was good for his classmates.

“School is society. Society is all of us – it includes everyone.” That outlook has won her the formal appreciation of the Association for Community Living. Announcing the award, it honoured her for: • teaching demonstration lessons in classrooms, modeling adaptations and modifications of the curriculum, especially for students who challenge schools the most; • acting as a liaison between schools and homes when issues arose; • creating a district Inclusive education committee comprised of parents, educators, trustees, community members - one of the first in the province; • ensuring that all students participated in all school field trips, annual

education trips, school events; • creating an atmosphere where community services and school services work together to support all students in their learning. George Serra, president of the Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association, said Meston has long been an advocate for special needs students, ensuring they have adequate teachers assistants, protecting that area from cuts. “She has been a champion of supporting kids with special needs,” said Serra. “She’s the reason our district has good support for those kids.” She will receive the award at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo on June 12, as par of the Inclusion B.C. conference.

Teacher job action is going to leave working parents scrambling for child care. The parks and leisure services commission has a potential solution. In the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district, teachers will take their turn in province-wide rotating strikes on Tuesday. That day, there will be a full-day camp for kids running at the Greg Moore Youth Centre from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be games, crafts and swimming in the afternoon, in a format similar to what the commission offers on professional development days in schools. It is for children aged 5-12. The cost is $38 for the day, and students must register in advance. They can do so in person, over the phone at 604-465-2470 or online are recreg4u.ca. The camp bar code for registration purposes is 193153. Often The ACT will offer similar arts programs, but the facility is not available at this time. Jen Baillie of youth services said the camp can accommodate up to 40 kids, and another space may be found for more, if there is enough demand. Youth services offers before and after school care at six elementary schools through its Active Kids Club on regular school days, but those facilities will be closed during the job action. There is no end in sight to the acrimonious labour dispute between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the government. The province has moved off its demand for a 10-year agreement, asking for a six-year term. However the two sides remain far apart on the salaries and other issues.

Objective to measures we’re taking is a settlement: MLA Teachers from front

The latter is the prohibition Serra predicts will impact sports and grad ceremonies. He said teachers are angry about the government’s “goading” action. “Absolutely we are – and I’m sure it’s going to upset parents even more.” The government will dock teachers 10 per cent pay if they go to Stage 2 job action, which is planned next week. Stage 2 is rotating strikes,

with Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows schools scheduled to be closed on Tuesday. Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton said the government’s intent is not to impact grad ceremonies, field trips or sporting events. If teachers withdraw from these activities, it will be on the instructions of their union, he said. “We want a settlement as soon as possible. Parents deserve that, and students de-

serve that,” said Dalton. “We don’t want it to drag on. The objective to the measures we’re taking is to achieve a settlement.” He said the government is compromising at the bargaining table. He noted that the government campaigned in the last election on a 10year deal with teachers. It was a key bargaining position. Backing off that stance, to a proposed six-year deal, was “a big step back,” he said.

But the BCTF “brushed that aside.” Dalton said the union’s pay demands, which the government pegs at 21.5 per cent in total compensation increases over four years, are “out of the ball park.” Stacy MacLennan is a parent who has organized parent rallies at the Maple Ridge and Mission offices of Dalton. “I’m floored with the direction this has taken,” she said

on Thursday. “They are pitting parents against teachers.” The union is appealing the 10-per-cent pay cut to the Labour Relations Board, to see whether it is legal. The government position is “reduced pay for reduced work.” Serra noted that teachers are already not being paid for the days they are on strike. The government also said

all union members will be locked out effective June 27, if an agreement is not reached. Serra said yearround schools, such as Kanaka Creek elementary, could potentially be closed down as an unintended consequence of the lockout. “And this causes all sorts of anxiety about September,” noted Serra. The province’s 41,000 teachers have been without a contract since June 2013.

Maple Ridge firefighters battled a fire Wednesday morning at Valley Kiln and Pattern Ltd., in the industrial area of Lougheed Highway in east Maple Ridge. The fire started at 10 a.m. in a sawdust bunker in the planer portion of the plant – on 288th Street – that shapes wood into finished lumber. “The mill had a small fire in the planar portion of the mill that got sucked up into the dust collection system,” said fire chief Dane Spence. “This is a dust collection system that’s designed to suck up the dust and remove it. Some of the hot dust got sucked into the dust collection system.” John Black of Valley Kiln said that he’s been in the business since 1979, and though he hasn’t seen a bunker fire like this before, he is aware it is common in the industry. “It happens quite frequently, especially in K3 plants and stuff like that. All their hoppers would have sprinkler systems built inside,” he said. “We don’t at the present here, but we don’t have any water on site, it’s all well water out here.” The plant was running kilndried cypress wood that still con-

Unlike the dust explosion fire that claimed two lives and injured 20 others at Burns Lake in 2012, Spence made it clear that this fire is much more common and much less dangerous. To put out the flames, firefighters emptied the hopper and doused the flames as the sawdust fell out.

“When the hopper was dumped there was lots of flames,” Spence said. “But the tubing’s metal, the actual bunker itself is all metal, and it’s made to withstand a fire.” According to Spence, the hopper is 15 metres from the main plant. Nobody was hurt. Black said that no workers were evacuated and the plant was to be fully operational again by Thursday.

Grow a front yard garden contest Municipal garden contest underway by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Your front yard doesn’t have to be just for decoration, a place to impress your neighbours with your lawnmowing skill or weeding techniques. Your front yard can also be used to provide your next meal, when that space is used to grow fruits and vegetables. A few people have been trying to show that for the past four years in the District of Maple Ridge’s Front Yard Food Garden Contest. The contest is now in its fifth year, and if you enter, the odds are with you. Only three entries came in last year, said Diana Hall, planner with the District of Maple Ridge, so people entering one of three categories, depending on lot size, will have a good chance of winning one of the $25 gift certificates from the Haney Farmer’s Market. Hall said the goal is to encourage people to use their front yards to grow their own food and develop an appreciation of where our food comes from. But that doesn’t mean a veggie garden is an excuse to turn your front yard into a mess. “It has to have a good design to it,” Hall said. Entries will also be judged by quantity and variety of food grown, the gardening practices and health of plants. Hall said that making the front yard a place to grow vegetables makes everyone who passes by aware of local food production. It also helps build a sense of community by giving people something to talk about. She has her own front-

yard garden in Burnaby and grows tomatoes, beans and has a few apple trees. She’ll also try kale and may plant a few blueberry bushes, not only for the berries but because the shrubs, look nice. This year, the contest coincides with another effort to get more people growing. Thanks to the More Peas Please project, families with young children can get a free kickstart to growing a garden. Volunteers will visit families armed with seeds, soil and watering cans and help parents and the kids locate a space for a garden and get young plants growing. “Almost everyone I know had a garden growing up, but throwing in a few seeds as a kid and preparing the whole thing from scratch are two totally different things,” says Leanne Koehn, one of the project coordinators. “We’re starting with up to 25 families from Glenwood elementary and Hammond elementary,” said Richard Farrance, coordinator. “The intention is to make it easy for the family to start a garden and hopefully they will want to continue or expand it the following year.” If you’re in the Hammond or Glenwood elementary areas, e-mail Farrance at rjfarrance@ gmail.com. Anyone who gets a garden growing, can enter the children’s category of the Front Yard Food Garden Contest. Judging for the front yard contest takes place in late August based on quantity and variety of food produced, health of plants and garden practices. To enter, send in a “before” photo of your front yard by June 27 to dhall@ mapleridge.ca.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Use your brains The provincial government is playing hardball with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. While teachers might have some of their pay cut, it will be students who will be missing out. The teachers’ union announced Monday its plans to introduce rotating strikes across the province on this coming Tuesday, meaning no classes. That followed the rejection of an offer from the province to give teachers a 6.5 per cent increase over six years, plus a $1,200 signing bonus to all 41,000 of them. The province also threatened to cut teacher salaries by five per cent if they didn’t sign it by the end of the school year. Teachers have asked for a 21.5 per cent total increase over four years – a demand Maple RidgeMission MLA Marc Dalton calls “out of the ball park.” On Thursday, the Liberal government announced a partial lockout – a stop-work order, taking effect 45 minutes before and after school hours and during lunch and recess breaks, as well as a 10 per cent cut in teacher salaries. They won’t get paid for not working. The year-end lockout may disrupt issuing of report cards and marking of provincial exams for graduating students. Graduation ceremonies could also be cancelled. Some parents and students will be upset by all this, but it should never have gone so far. The Liberals and BCTF have been in a spat over class sizes and composition since the NDP’s epic collapse in the 2001 provincial election. The B.C. government is to appeal a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that ordered a return to 2002 classroom rules, although even the local school district has acknowledged that doing so would be enormously expensive. Rather than putting parents and students in the middle, again – using threats and withdrawing services at a critical time, getting hung up on configurations agreed to by a previous governing party before an election – why not bring in a mediator to help resolve what the two sides have been unable to do for 13 years. Let’s use our brains and agree to common-sense, affordable solutions and get back to educating the current generation. Spare us the drama. – The News

Don’t cut off your nose to spite face In AD 867, Vikings raided a Scottish monastery to find nuns who’d disfigured themselves to save their chastity. The raiders revolted – burned everything to the ground.

T

he proverb reminds us that trying to avoid Along the Fraser one problem can cre- Jack Emberly ate other, unforeseen ones. Cutting off your nose to spite your face may be standard practice for government in times of fiscal restraint. According to Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin, the Ministry of Transportation – responsible for truck stops - was ready to close the one on Lougheed Highway to side-step the problem of pee jugs thrown into the ditch here. A toilet and garbage cans would have to be cleaned at a cost to the ministry. Closing the stop would have made life harder on truckers, and only shifted dumping to other communities. Daykin averted that by ordering the ditch cleaned, a garbage can added, as well a $10,000 fine for littering. Maybe we’ll find fewer pee jugs on roads into town, too. “The Coquihalla is jammed packed with garbage, and the washrooms are not maintained,” says trucker Mike Young, who called me last week.

Q

uestion of the week:

“My piss jug gets recycled. It’s not the older guys who throw them out windows, but new ones. A lot are lazy and don’t care.” Lower Mainland cities don’t seem to care, either. “In Surrey, Langley, and Abbotsford,” says Young, “they don’t even have washrooms for truckers. This makes all truckers very agitated.” The pull-out in Abbotsford near Highway 1 and Lonzo Creek, a salmon stream, is often full of pee jugs. Doug Gosling, an Abbotsford stream keeper, says a ministry employee told him it, too, would be shut down because of this problem, which exists at all truck stops. When he suggested the ministry put a bin on site, he was told the cost of garbage removal is too great. The cost of not doing anything grows daily. “There’s a large pile of garbage MoT has to collect near the truck stop which now abuts new homeless camps,” says Gosling. Last summer, Abbotsford tried to rid itself of homeless people and their garbage by spreading chicken manure in highly visible camps. Has it worked? This new camp – hidden from public scrutiny – has no toilets. Last summer, Abbotsford CFIA inspector Avtar Singh told me chicken manure contains botulism, a serious disease, even if composted. What’s the effect of untreated feces on people, on water? Gosling was told that transportation ministry crews won’t enter the new camp alone because of a dangerous criminal

Do you think traffic circles are a good use of taxpayers’ money? Yes: 47% – No: 53%

element, “and sharps” (needles) strewn around. “The more I learn about this whole issue,” says Gosling, “the more I want to bring it to provincial authorities like Fraser Health.” Tasleem Juma of Fraser Health told me the agency hasn’t had complaints about pee jugs at the truck stop, but would work on the problem with provincial ministries, if asked. They haven’t so far. That’s because nobody acknowledged the camps until Gosling discovered them, and informed me. “My concern,” says Gosling, who has a waste water inspection business, “is keeping groundwater clean and free from contamination. The aquifer under Sumas Prairie is very shallow, so not much filtering goes on. When I told the MoT guy the stream was being used for irrigation of food crops and indirectly, for drinking water, he was concerned the water is at risk. I wouldn’t’ be surprised if someone isn’t using it for drinking water now.” Gosling will discuss this with Fraser Health. He’s spoken to a city worker, who suggested the pee issue could be addressed “during future truck parking applications.” But, if the ministry carries out its plan to close truck stops to avoid costs, it’s unlikely there’ll be new parking applications in any town. Instead, we’ll have more proof of what happens when government – boasting fiscal restraint -cuts its nose off to spite its face. Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

I am not a teacher, but a parent, and I’ve seen the problems cuts have made for the students at my child’s school.  They can’t handle any more. There is no more fat to trim. Our kids need a clean, safe, enriching environment in which to learn. But with constant funding cuts year after year, it is getting harder and harder to achieve.  For some kids, school is the only clean, safe, enriching environment they have. The government talks about an educated and technical work force needed to meet the needs of the LNG projects in the next eight to 12 years. Our kids today will be those workers.  Yet the government, in making deep cuts year after year, is abandoning our students and creating a lost generation. Think of education as a capital project, like roads. You borrow and invest money to get  the best possible results for years to come. It’s the same with providing a good education for a student, because it pays dividends in the end. I believe that we need to quit making education a political football and make it an apolitical enterprise. Its time for all parents, grandparents and citizens to tell the government: no more cuts. If you won’t stand up for your kids, who will stand up for them? John Morgan Maple Ridge

Editor, The News: Re: Seniors told, pay more or move (The News, May 16). I’ve been following the stories of many seniors and people with disabilities lately. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for them, the often overlooked members of the community, the people who often try to scratch out a living all of their lives, pay into the Canada Pension Plan, only to end up in destitution and ruin, wasting away in what are supposed to be their Golden Years. Government-legislated poverty seems to be the way this affluent country rewards them for all of their hard work over the years. We no longer live in closeknit families, in which the

younger generations take care of their aging relatives. Based on median income, the cost of living, and extreme inflation, it is no wonder we, as families, have not the money to take care of our elders. It is more than just a runaway lack of morality. This is a financial apocalypse. Even the middle class is quickly disintegrating.   I hear of seniors having to skip meals and go without basic necessities in order to make rent on time. Wages and pensions have not been increased with the ever-soaring cost of living. I remember a time when $20 could get a four or five good-sized bags of groceries. Now, you couldn’t even buy one bag of the basic staples

required for proper nutrition. Canada is well overdue for a pension reform. Also, I know a few people with children who are physically disabled or have a mental illness that prevents them from working. They are forced to live on a meager income of $900 a month. With the average rent being $750 a month, most times not including phone and Hydro, how are they supposed to survive? You could argue that there are food banks and local charities, but how can one simply say that they should have to rely on the charity of others, when even the hardworking stiffs who run our gas stations and prepare our food, not to mention pay ex-

than in the late afternoon? I know that the gas companies would like us to believe they are not simply gouging us, so there must be another reason. Any ideas?

It also seems strange that all the gas stations change their prices within 10 minutes of each other. I for one am tired of being gouged. Bring on the electric

orbitant taxes, could be in need of a bit of charity themselves? Where is the dignity in all of this? Many families with children, and seniors, struggle daily to put food on the table or to keep the lights on. Every person has a right to live with dignity and respect. Seniors and people with disabilities deserve an adequate income in order to pay for core housing need (which should be a third of income), proper diet and nutrition, and to be able to participate within their own community, because you can hardly step out of your door without something costing money these days.

Old forestry cabin to be torn down New dining hall to be built in its place by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

T

he last piece of the old forestry camp at Loon Lake Research and Education Centre will be torn down in a few days, completing a decadelong process of renewal at the UBC facility. The staff building was the last surviving building from Loon Lake forestry camp built in 1948, said facilities manager Karim Farahbakhchian. Loon Lake was initially established as a UBC faculty of forestry camp for students. Initially, there was only a dining room and six rustic wood cabins with no electricity or indoor power. Professors used to stay there during the courses held every spring in UBC’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest. “We still run our forestry camp in April every year. So it’s been going since 1948. We just had one leave two weeks ago,” Farahbakhchian said. In place of the old staff building will rise a $3.3-million, 6,500-sq.foot dining hall and kitchen. “Lots of our trees will be used for construction material for that building.” The UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest operates at the top of 232nd Street and includes a mill for processing the logs. The new dining centre will have a vaulted ceiling and lots of windows and have the same look as the old staff building that’s being torn down. Farahbakhchian pointed out the building comes down the same day as he celebrates his 20th year at the centre.

“This is pretty well the last big project. This is it.” In 2004, a new gymnasium was built, followed by construction of the Koerner Centre in 2005. After that, the Johnson Cabins were built in 2009, “complete with comfortable lounge areas, cozy fireplaces and … peaceful sleeping rooms,” says the website. Last year, Loon Lake had a natural gas supply installed into the centre, sparing the chore of hauling up propane tanks at a monthly cost of $11,000. The natural

gas bill now is about a quarter of that. The centre’s largest tenant is the B.C. Cancer Society’s which books the facility seven weeks every year for Camp Goodtimes to help sick kids. Farahbakhchian said the old dining hall will be converted to more sleeping quarters while the new dining centre will go on the site of the former staff building. Construction starts in two weeks with deadline to get the foundation done by the fall. “If we don’t get that

foundation in by September or October, then we’re too late.” The snow and rain will make it too difficult to continue construction. The new dining centre should be completed by next June. Over the course of a year, the Loon Lake Research and Education Centre hosts about 20,000 people through corporate and school retreats, wellness events, meetings and team-building exercises. “We don’t do weddings.”

the best method of making people aware that there is an election,” Armstrong said. But it’s a tough sell. People may be more interested in national issues over which they have no say, but it’s the local issues on which they can have direct input. “Municipal politics is probably the area of government that affects their lives the most,” said Armstrong. “A property zoning, a construction project in their neighbourhood, a new road widening, this can have a profound effect on your life and these are municipal elections.” Despite that, people still don’t show up to vote. Issues and personalities can determine sometimes increase voter turnout, whereas a large number of candidates can discourage that. It’s people’s right to run for office but, “I really wonder if some of them have any expectation of getting elected,” and are just running to advance their causes, Armstrong said. In Pitt Meadows, staff have $30,000, and increase of $7,000, to promote the upcoming civic election. According to the report “Getting the Ma-

jority to Vote,” by the Columbia Institute, 70 to 80 per cent of eligible voters in B.C. didn’t vote in the last civic election. Vancouver, with higher profile municipal politicians and wellfunded campaigns, did the best among B.C.’s bigger cities with 34.6 per cent turnout. S u r r e y ’s turnout was 25 per cent and several Armstrong other Metro Vancouver cities fared even worse, with mayors and councils elected on turnouts ranging from 21 to 25 per cent in Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam and on the North Shore. Pitt Meadows recorded 30 per cent turnout, compared to 20 in Maple Ridge. Report author Norman Gludovatz recommends preregistration of teens while they’re still in high school in an attempt to develop life-long voting habits among youth, whose turnout is worse than older age groups. Gludovatz notes local elections are complex, requiring voters to choose multiple candidates for mayor, city council and school

board, unlike federal and provincial elections, in which voters pick just one candidate. It’s simpler in many other parts of Canada, where ward systems mean people vote to fill only one council seat in their area, not multiple councillors for the whole city. A growing number of people are feeling disconnected, particularly in fast-growing populations where newcomers have little or no social network, Gludovatz said. Pitt council has suggested that residents be given voter cards to tell them where and how to vote and that more polling stations be opened. Staff give a report to council on the issue next week. Maybe voters will get stickers saying they voted, said chief election officer Kelly Kenney. Perhaps balloons could be stuck on to polling stations, she said. “We’ve traditionally, had quite a high turnout.” But it’s been dropping as well. In 1999, about 42 per cent of Pitt Meadows voters turned out. That dropped to 35 per cent in 2002 and 27 per cent in 2005 and to 23 per cent in 2008. The 2014 election also likely marks the move to four-year terms for councillors, up from three as well as stricter disclosure rules for campaigns. Legislation in March proposed that candidates have only 90 days instead of 120 days to file their campaign disclosure forms that identifies who contributed to their campaigns. Elections B.C. could also take over the enforcement of that rule instead of leaving it up to cities. Third parties who sponsor ads would also have to register and disclose their expenses, and each election sign would have sign to disclose who paid for it. For Armstrong, whose dad served as a U.N. peacekeeper in parts of the world where people couldn’t vote, voting is a duty. “It was pounded into me the responsibility of voting at all levels. It was something I was taught. It was a civic duty.”

his former smoker doesn’t have a story about how she stubbed out her last butt and kicked the habit through sheer force of will. Too many times to count, Adriana Anderson-Viskovich threw a package of cigarettes away, only to completely cave in by noon the next day and go buy a new pack. Too many nights the local health care worker went to bed at night hating the fact that she was a smoker, and couldn’t quit. She tried to quit when she got pregnant, but willpower alone wasn’t enough. Adriana relied on cigarettes. “I thought it was helping to relieve stress that I had in my life,” she said. “Now, I don’t think it helped at all.” It was the death of an aunt, by lung cancer, that finally gave her the impetus to quit.

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Adriana Viskovich quit smoking two years ago. “I saw her on her death bed,” Adriana recalls. She thought about the children and grandchildren her aunt was leaving behind, having not yet seen her 50th birthday, and how sad it was for them. She thought about her own son, and knew she had to quit for him. Willpower alone can rarely cut it for someone who had a pack-and-ahalf habit. “It was futile for me.” She tried the patch, but couldn’t make it stick. It helped her to quit for almost a month, but she eventually went back to smoking.

Finally, Adriana tried a smoking cessation drug, and somehow it was the right antidote. “It just made it more tolerable.” So her story is more one of perseverance, which is a kind of willpower. She breathes easier now. She put on a few pounds, but eventually that leveled off, and she feels healthy. She can tell her son Cole not to smoke, and not feel like a hypocrite. If cigarettes helped her relieve stress, she realizes now it was because of the little break they offer – a chance to step outside, escape a nerve-wracking situation, if only for five minutes. Like everyone, she does need strategies to cope with stress, and now she’s addicted to yoga. Looking back on it, from a distance of four years in August, does not make quitting seem any less of an ordeal. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Adriana used the B.C. Lung Association’s website quitnow.ca as an online resource and support. The association called upon members of its QuitNow Facebook community to share their personal stories

to inspire others, and Adriana’s is one that was highlighted. Another was Michelle Lylack, a Pitt Meadows resident. Before I quit, smoking was everything,” she wrote. “I got up and had a cigarette. Then I’d get in my car and have another. Then I’d have one during smoke breaks with friends. “To quit, I had to recreate my life. I started biking and running ... And now that I’ve been two years smoke-free, I’m excited for the future. I have a second chance at living a longer, healthier life.” The Lung Association is running a contest that challenges women to blow off one full week of smoking, from June 2-8, for a chance to win a $1,000 prize. Association spokesperson Katrina van Bylandt said the goal is to get women thinking about butting out, and introduce them to QuitNow. “We just want people to keep trying, and eventually they’ll get there,” said van Bylandt. That was Adriana’s experience, and her advice to other women. “Just quit,” she tells them. “It’s really worth it.”

‘What they gave up for freedom’ History society to pay respect, 70 years later by Jani s War re n contributor

H

is big brother was protective. Grant MacKimmie was four years younger and would often tease his elder sibling Allan, but he only returned kindness. In his letters home from England, where he was stationed during the Second World War, Allan would write to his mother, “be good to Grant.” Grant said he was “just getting to know him” when the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) came to their town of Beaver Lodge, AB, looking for recruits. Allan got permission from their father to sign up, but he was just shy of the required enlistment age of 17.6 years old. On July 19, 1943, Allan got his wish and was sent for basic training for a month in Edmonton. Another six months were spent near Montreal to become an air gunner and his high marks earned him the rank of sergeant. Less than a month afterward, he was on a two-week boat ride to England. There, he shot down explosive drones from the air above England and northern France. But on June 29, 1944 — 11 months after he joined the war effort — Allan and five other Canadians in his unit took off from Wellesborne, Warwickshire, on a navigational exercise when tragedy happened two hours later in the skies over the village of Roade, Northamptonshire. Ron Johnson of the Roade Local History Society said it was a “gloomy, thundery, dark foreboding late afternoon” when the Wellington bomber was struck by lightning, killing all six onboard. One society member recalls being a sevenyear-old girl when she and her brother saw the plane disintegrate and heard an explosion. “Her father, who had experienced bombs falling in the London blitz, thought it was a buzz bomb and the family dived beneath the table,” Johnson wrote. “However, when it became apparent that the village was not under enemy attack, father and son ran over to the field to see what they could do to help.” War records show Al-

Allan Hustead MacKimmie, an air gunner in the Second World War who was killed by lightning – along with five other Canadian officers – while aboard a plane. lan died of “multiple fractures and lacerations.” News of his death came via a CP telegraph on July 5, 1944, to Thomas and Gena MacKimmie, who by then were living in Edmonton. “I still remember walking into the room. Mom looked at me and I knew, from that point on, what was going on,” Grant said. “It’s such a short life.” A year later, the MacKimmie family, including 15-year-old Grant,

moved to Port Coquitlam, the place where the federal government recognizes as Allan MacKimmie’s hometown because of its ongoing correspondence with his parents. Grant, who lives in Maple Ridge now, said his mother was invited by the PoCo Legion to place a wreath at the cenotaph on Remembrance Day; each time, she wore her silver cross on her lapel, the medal bestowed to

mothers of fallen soldiers. Grant has the silver cross and another of Allan’s medal tucked away – as well as the CP telegraph and the wings badge taken from his uniform on the day he died. He is deeply proud of his brother’s heroism and “greatly honoured” that the Roade history society wants to pay respects, 70 years later, to Allan and sergeants John Sollie and William Clark, flying officers Robert Andrews and Paul Tokar, and pilot officer Charles Stephen. The society has written to Legions, newspapers and other groups in their listed hometowns of PoCo, Toronto, Montreal, Fenwick, Washgo and Bentley to look for family and friends. Johnson said it wants to know the personal stories of the six men who died above their village and are now interred – side by side – at Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey, England. In November, the society plans to install a memorial plaque with their names, either in the vicinity of the village war memorial or on the roadside near the area where the planed crashed. “These boys were so young and so far from home. We should remember what they gave up for our freedom,” Johnson said.

MRSS looking back at Century ‘74 class

Open House

LORNE AVENUE SIDEWALK INSTALLATION (MAPLE CRESCENT TO PRINCESS STREET)

I

n 1974, the year in Maple Ridge was named “Century 74” – celebrating the municipality’s 100th anniversary. The 1974 graduation class from Maple Ridge secondary is now planning a 40th reunion for June 20-22, and organizers are asking fellow grads to spread the word and encourage people to attend the festivities. Marie Nightingale has listed the events. On Friday, June 6, you may revisit Maple Ridge secondary for a tour, running, 5:30-6:30 p.m. People will recognize some places, but will see many changes and additions. Following the tour, there will be a social at Shooter’s Pub, starting at 7 p.m. The next day, Saturday, there will be golfing at Golden Eagle Golf Course, with tee times starting at at 10 a.m. That evening the major celebration will be a dinner at Meadow

We invite you to attend an Open House to view the conceptual designs for the sidewalk installation on Lorne Avenue from Maple Crescent to Princess Street. Your attendance is welcomed as we finalize our concepts and move forward into construction. The objective of this project is to improve pedestrian connectivity and safety along Lorne Avenue. The work includes construction of approximately 380m concrete sidewalk on the northwest side of Lorne Avenue and some minor drainage improvements. The Open House is scheduled for: Date: Monday, May 26, 2014 Time: 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm Location: Maple Ridge Municipal Hall Lobby area at the Dewdney Trunk Road entrance 11995 Haney Place, Maple Ridge Design boards will be on display and District staff will be available to answer your questions.

Gardens Golf Course for classmates, partners and teachers. Cocktails will begin at 5 p.m., with dinner served at 7 p.m. Following that there will be dancing to a live band from 9 p.m. on. To round out the reunion weekend, on Sunday, June 22, there will be a pot-luck picnic at 11:30 a.m. Every issue of the Maple Ridge Gazette newspaper during 1974 featured Century 74 celebrations for the whole community. Mayor Betty Dube and council members are pictured wearing 1874 style costumes. Editor Eric Dunning ran columns about historical events during our early years, and reprinted articles written by well-known pioneers. The local interest news items in the Gazette included a regular column written by MRSS student Marie Nightingale, titled Ridge Echoes. She reported on high school sports teams, special events like a free band concert by ‘Free Fare’, a group from Florida. Other news items were the choice of students to appear on the

competitive quiz program on CBC television ‘Reach for the Top’ and a bottle drive for the Glee Club. A field trip for the Grade 11 Forestry class to Hammond Mill rounded out the Jan. 14 column. Another news item in the Gazette will amaze school teachers and trustees alike. A pay raise of 10.3 per cent was reported for District No. 42 teachers. Real estate prices also seem impossible 40 years later. A three bedroom home on a 75-by-150 foot lot is advertised at $31,900. That year was also the beginning of a collection of artifacts intended for a museum to open in Maple Ridge. We will be celebrating the 40th anniversary for the beginning of the Maple Ridge Museum on Aug. 10 on the present museum grounds, the Haney Brick and Tile site. This will also be the 30th anniversary for the museum located in the Brickyard Manager’s house. Watch for more details closer to the big event. • Tickets for all the reunion events are $80; 604-462-8587.

Jaden Dyer, 14, wrote a letter to McDonald’s Canada to request recycling containers at its restaurants. aging recyclable, but they don’t have a place to recycle them, so that didn’t make sense to me. Why would you go through all that trouble and money if there’s no point to it,” Dyer said. “No fast food places really have that kind of thing.” Tired of seeing the discarded trash, Dyer wrote a letter to McDonald’s head office in Toronto. In it, she commends McDonald’s for taking some steps to be more eco-friendly, but notes that customers have no option to responsibly dispose of the restaurant’s eco-friendly packaging within the restaurant itself. “In most family homes, over 75 per cent of all their waste each week can be recycled, so imagine how much could be kept out of landfills each day in a busy restaurant,” Dyer wrote. “There would be an amazing difference in the world.” Dyer is the cousin of Becky Dyer, who was killed, along with her boyfriend, Johnny De Oliveira, in 2010, when a car flipped over a median on the Lougheed Highway and landed on top of their Suzuki Swift. Becky’s mother, Debbie Dyer, Jaden’s aunt, said that the two were an influence on each other growing up. “Jaden used to go and visit Becky where she used to work, and Becky always wore the shirt ‘green is the new black’,” she said. “They were so much alike, those two.” Jaden Dyer said she’s always had a passion for the environment. “I hate how much we throw out. You go around to parks and things and it’s all just garbage cans, and people even litter, they don’t take the time to put it in the garbage,” she said. While McDonald’s Canada said it has not yet received the letter, western Canada communications manager

John Gibson said that most restaurants across the country recycle as much waste as they can. “That could include everything from cardboard boxes to the used oil from the fryers, which is the case in our Maple Ridge restaurants,” he said. “We estimate that these two items alone represent 36 per cent of the in-restaurant waste by weight.” Gibson said that Ontario is the only province so far where customers are able to sort their waste by category, where sourceseparation policies are enforced. “The challenge is that when packaging is soiled by sauces or leftover food it becomes difficult to recycle,” he said. “Jaden has strong beliefs,” said Debbie Dyer. “And she researches so much, too. Becky’s favourite quote was, ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world,’ and I think that exemplifies Jaden, as well. And Jaden believes in that, too.” Jaden Dyer is in Grade 8, but has already joined a club called EcoAction, and participates in environmental action such as the school-funded We Day, an educational event that has helped raise $26 million for over 900 causes. Still, Dyer wishes there were more young people engaged in environmentalism. “I just love the environment, I love nature, I love going out and camping and stuff, and I just hate how no one really acknowledges that there needs to be a difference that needs to be made,” she said. “A lot of people don’t seem to care.” “It would only take one easy step,” Dyer wrote in her letter to McDonald’s. “ We must be the change that we wish to see in the world and together we can make a difference.”

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

Safety Tip: As high school seniors prepare for graduation, it’s important that parents make sure their teens are also planning for a side ride home after all of their festivities. Grads often treat themselves to limousine rides but make sure they have a plan if they’ll be going to any other celebrations.

Right bike, right price By Alexandra Straub

Y

ou’ve got your license and proper gear, now all you need is your motorcycle. A few things to consider before signing on the dotted line. • Budget: Establishing a budget is probably the most important thing to outline when it comes to your new ride. If you’re buying used, this is particularly important. You might be tempted to spend an extra couple of thousand on the bike of your dreams. But if the dream bike just happens to be a nightmare and costs you an unanticipated fortune on repairs, you might find yourself in a pickle. • New or used: New bikes have warranties, but a used bike that might not be too old could still have one. Buying used you could get a more upscale model for your

budget. • Private sale or from a dealership: Speaking from experience, buying through a private sale can be a good way to go, especially on a budget. I found my bike on Craigslist. But if you can’t pay cash up front, dealers generally have financing or payment plan options. Private sales don’t. Dealers also have most likely done a tune-up or some service in preparing the bike for the sale. Check the VIN through ICBC or a trusted database It might cost you a few extra dollars to run a bike’s VIN through a trusted database, but can save you multiple headaches in the end. It will show if the bike has been in any reported accidents and detail the damage. It’ll also show if there is money owing on the bike or if it was reported stolen. Keep in mind, if the bike is from out of the country, the record likely won’t show. When I went to buy my first bike, I had my heart set on a beautiful Yamaha R6. It looked brand new and perfect. The seller said it had

never been in any accidents and had all original parts. I left thinking that the next day I’d be riding this beauty home. However, I paid my $20 (at the time) and found out the bike had been in two accidents with damage costs of more than $3,000. If you’re buying through a dealership, they might even have the bike’s history on hand for you. It never hurts to double check. • Myth of displacements: Many new riders like to set a cap on the cc displacement they’re willing to get for their first bike. I had a reader write me asking what he should get. He’s 6’2”, 220 pounds and had long limbs. He didn’t want anything higher than a 250cc, though. I asked him why. He said he wanted something manageable for his first bike. With long arms and legs, a 250cc bike wasn’t going to fit him. Or vice versa. I told him to look at cruisers, like the Harley-Davidson Sportster, Honda Shadow, Suzuki Boulevard S40, Yamaha Bolt. They might have a higher displacement, but they’re

going to be easy to manage and work much better with his body. What did he buy? A used 2006 Honda Shadow 750cc. And he loves it. I recommend buying a bike that you are comfortable on, both physically and mentally. • Test rides: Private sellers won’t generally let you test ride, but ask. Dealers are more open to this, especially with newer models because they have demo fleets. • Mechanical Inspection: If you’re buying used, and you are this close to making the decision, before you go to the bank and give up your savings, spend an extra $100-$200 to get a motorcycle mechanic to look at your potential purchase. Private sellers will generally ride the bike down to a location of your choice and let the mechanic work their magic. The mechanic will then let you know what things might need to be worked on in the near or distant future. If the seller thinks it’s too much work, then it’s your call if you want to continue to work with them. I wouldn’t buy a bike without knowing what I’m getting into.

The stereo is a 546-watt ELS surround sound system with DVD/ AM/FM/SiriusXM/MP3/WMA tuner with your choice of 10 to 12 speakers including a subwoofer. The available DVD entertainment system features a 16.2-inch split screen display with HDMI compatibility; no more kids fighting over the remote. There is an available Collision Mitigation Braking system (CBMS), standard equipment on the Elite, which is constantly monitoring the road for you. If it detects you are approaching another vehicle too quickly it will warn you with a flashing “brake” sign on the instrument panel and if the accident is unavoidable it will tighten up the seat belts and apply the brakes for you to reduce the severity of the impact. Another safety feature is the blind spot information system. This warns when a vehicle is in your blind spot and flashes an amber light on the inside of each side mirror warning you. Dual stage, dual threshold front airbags, front side airbags, three-row side curtain airbags with roll over sensor, engine immobilizer theft deterrent system are some of the many safety features in this vehicle.

Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver’s airbag module. • 2011 – If the wiper blades become frozen to the windshield, and the wiper motor is switched ‘on,’ one of the wiper rods could bend or separate from the motor (due to insufficient stiffness of the rod). Dealers will replace the windshield wiper rod.

hen Honda launched its fourth generation Odyssey in 2011, it described the minivan as ‘the ultimate in family transportation.’ Odyssey has become an industry benchmark for minivan interior versatility features, fuel economy and agile driving dynamics. While the market for new minivans has been shrinking in recent years, it’s still sizable in Canada. A used Odyssey is a sought-after premium product that will probably cost a little more; historically it retains its value exceptionally well. Compared to its predecessor, the 2011 Odyssey offered improved fuel economy due in part to a more aerodynamic shape that’s wider and includes a lower roofline. Offering seating for up to seven (or eight) occupants, this Odyssey also came with a new “3-mode” second-row seat design and an easier to use fold-away 60/40 split 3rd-row seat. Even its third row seat provides ample head and legroom for adults and a surprisingly high degree of comfort. Its stylish “lightning-bolt” body belt line, that zig-zag just after the sliding door, also cleverly provides third row passengers a larger window. A bigger part of the fuel economy improvement story was the new 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 engine that came with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM). The VCM technology allows the engine to operate on just three or four of its six cylinders when power requirements are low, such as highway cruising. When linked with a sixspeed automatic transmission in the Touring edition of Odyssey it can achieve best-in-class city/highway fuel economy, rated at 10.9/7.1 L/100km (city/ highway). The same engine comes standard with a fivespeed automatic transmission in all other trim levels of Odyssey, which are LX, EX, EX-RES and EX-L. The Touring edition, which is considered the most luxurious Honda minivan ever, came with a 16.2inch ultra-wide screen rear entertainment system, a cool box for beverages, a multi-view rear-view camera with parking aid lines, a Blind Spot information system and auto-leveling HID headlights. Odyssey also comes with

The Honda Odyssey mini-van. an audio-based Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system and a chassis-based Active Control Engine Mount (ACM) system to cancel out noise and vibrations that can occur during the engines cylinder deactivation. Illumination of a green ‘ECO” light on the instrument panel is an indicator, although not necessarily, that Odyssey’s covert cylinder-deactivation is taking place. Other than minor exterior colour changes there were no changes to Odyssey for the 2012 model year. It got a back-up camera as standard equipment for 2013, but was otherwise unchanged. Designed, engineered and made in North America, the fourth-generation Honda Odyssey has a very good reliability record and achieved a “Top Safety Pick” rating based on its Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s crash testing results. King of the open road and a giant among minivans, the Honda Odyssey may be the pricey option, but it can also be a good vehicle investment.

Natural living at Bridlewood in Coquitlam By Kerry Vital

Located on the banks of West Smiling Creek and a tree-lined stream, Bridlewood by Polygon will have you feeling like you’re a part of nature. The peaceful location on Burke Mountain will make you enjoy staying close to home. Since opening for sale earlier this year, these homes have been so well-received that to keep up with demand, the second and final phase of homes at Bridlewood will be released for sale on Saturday May 24th.

The executive three- and four-bedroom townhomes are built in a Craftsman style, and feature warm cedar shingles, brick facades and gables. Every home has a generous deck or patio, as well as a private fenced yard. Inside, the warm wood laminate floors on the main level combine with large windows and overheight ceilings to make for a truly beautiful living space. The kitchens include stainlesssteel appliances, engineered stone countertops, and a family sized kitchen island.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

The ensuite bathroom is made for luxury, with a glass shower with rain shower head, engineered stone countertops and his-and-hers sinks. All homes feature a convenient powder room on the main level and double car garages (side-by-side and tandem). Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain is one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland. Bridlewood has hiking and biking trails on the doorstep as well as the shops and services at Meridian Corner and Meridian Crossing. Coquitlam Town Centre is just a short drive away, as well as transit via the new Evergreen Line. This is the final phase at Bridlewood and the last opportunity to own a home at this sought-after community. Homes at Bridlewood start at $429,900. For more information, visit polyhomes.com, call 604-4729018 or visit the presentation centre at 3470 Highland Drive, Coquitlam, open daily except Friday between 12 and 6 p.m.

The homes at McBride Station are inspired by Fort Langley’s history and heritage buildings, and include such gorgeous features as stainless-steel applainces, quartz countertops and large frameless glass showers in the ensuite.

A piece of history at McBride Station By Kerry Vital

Fort Langley can feel like a historic enclave in the middle of the otherwise-bustling Lower Mainland. Local builder Lanstone Homes is contributing to that feeling with McBride Station, an exclusive collection of townhomes that has found inspiration in the past. “This is your chance to own a piece of history,” says Michelle Taylor, director of marketing for Frontline Real Estate Services. “This is going to be one of the last

opportunities to own new product in Fort Langley.” McBride Station is located on land that was once owned by Charles Edward Hope, one of Fort Langley’s first pioneers. The 52 townhomes are inspired by four of Fort Langley’s heritage buildings: The Hope House, The Carriage House, The Station House and The Marr House. The original heritage Carriage House is located right beside McBride Station, and The Marr House and The Station House are close by. The homes range from approximately 1,150 to over 3,000 square feet, in five different master-on-main or traditional floorplans. “They feel like a single-family home,” Taylor says. “There’s nothing cookie-cutter about them.” The exteriors have tons of curb appeal, with twelve different colour schemes to choose

from, a double-car garage and a fully fenced backyard with a covered paver stone patio. Inside, engineered hardwood and nine-foot ceilings throughout the main floor welcome you home. Coffered living room ceilings and large windows contribute to the spacious feeling, and every home has a full in-ground basement. The kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances complemented by quartz countertops, a marble mosaic tile backsplash and designer cabinetry, as well as a designer lighting package with island pendants, undercabinet puck lighting, dining chandelier and recessed ceiling lighting. Relaxing bathrooms have tile floors (with a heated mosaic floor in the ensuite), quartzite countertops and polished chrome fixtures. The master ensuite also has a large shower with frameless glass and a separate soaker tub

in some homes. On-site, homeowners will have access to a large greenhouse and garden plots with a fire pit and playground, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation on the McBride Station Trail that connects to the Fort to Fort Trail. Shopping at several local boutiques is just moments away, as well as restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, golf courses, and several other heritage sites. The homes at McBride Station have been extremely popular already. “Ninety per cent of the first release sold out in seven days,” says Taylor. Lanstone will celebrate the grand opening of the show home on May 24, as well as the release of the final phase of homes. Preregistration for VIP access is recommended. Homes start at $594,900. For more information, visit www.mcbridestation.com, call 604-888-7172 or stop by the sales centre at 9235 McBride Street, Langley, open daily (except Fridays) between noon and 5 p.m.

Landscape you want, garden you get

I

By Mike Lascelle

have been helping people design, install and renovate their gardens for well over 30 years now – with landscapes ranging in scope from modest residences, townhouses, estate gardens and commercial rooftops.

If three decades of landscaping has taught me anything, it’s that many of the design mistakes people make are relatively common. So I thought that I would share a few of these with you today, in hopes that you can avoid them and achieve that perfect garden space sooner, rather than later. • How big does it get? I have seen a giant redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) planted in a foundation bed because this was the garden designer’s signature tree and there was nowhere else to put it. Needless to say, it had to be removed within just a few years (it grows to an average of 150’ tall) and it should never have been planted there in the first place. Had it been left, those vigorous tree roots would have quickly plugged the foundation drains and heaved the sidewalk. So, always purchase a plant that will mature to fill the space you have.

Everyone loves the English cottage look, but when I ask them if they are prepared to weed constantly and divide perennials, that enthusiasm seems to wane. • Pretty isn’t always practical. Everyone loves the English cottage look, but when I ask them if they are prepared to weed constantly and divide perennials, that enthusiasm seems to wane. The other problem with a primarily herbaceous border is its lack of winter appeal – which translates into four to five months

(From left) Pachysandra terminalis ‘Variegata’/variegated Japanese spurge; ‘Bosc’ pears; and Pieris japonica ‘Little Heath.’

of dead sticks and dirt. A better approach is a mixed border with a blend of perennials, broadleaf evergreens (such as Pieris ‘Little Heath’) and even a winter-flowering shrub such as witch hazel or hamamelis. • Fruits or vegetables? There are far too many permaculture websites out there extolling the virtues of growing vegetables below fruit trees. The truth of the matter is that it is very difficult to grow edibles of any kind under fruit trees due to shading or root competition for available nutrients and water. That said, many fruit trees can be espaliered or flat-trained against fences or garage walls a few feet away from raised vegetable beds so that they can both peaceably co-exist. • Do you really need it? When it comes to

hard landscape features such as decks, patios and gazebos, far too often they are installed without any thought as to how much they will be used. Case in point: I can recall a rather exclusive British Properties landscape where a beautiful custom-made gazebo (worth $25,000) was built overlooking a lake. In all the years that I took care of that garden, I never once saw it being used by the homeowners, but I did enjoy eating my lunch there. • Shade-loving grass is an oxymoron. While there are seed or turf blends (with more creeping red fescue) that tolerate partial shade, no lawn survives without sun, it just slowly morphs into moss. Your best option here is to convert that shaded lawn space using dwarf broadleaf

shrubs such as Christmas box (Sarcococca humilis) or evergreen groundcovers like Japanese spurge (Pachysandra terminalis).

• For those of you looking for a little more garden design inspiration, I will be giving a talk on “The art of gardening” at the ACT’s Tea Garden fundraiser on Sunday, June 1 at 1:30 p.m. Part of my presentation will include a rarely-seen image of 10-year-old me complete with 1970s checked shirt, a Beatle’s haircut and aerodynamic ears – that alone should be worth the price of admission. Mike Lascelle is a local nursery manager and gardening author (hebe_acer@hotmail.com).

Nobody in the race was within eight seconds of her. She covered her lap with hurdles faster than most of the girls who ran the straight 400m race – without any obstacles to jump over. Her time was good enough for third in the 400m sprint. “Put some things in my way – it’s all good,” she jokes.

THOMPSON MARIE ELIZABETH

In loving memory of Ronald Steele

JULY 21, 1930 - MAY 8, 2014 Marie was born in Cranbrook, BC, to Mary Christina and Lovell Steele Murdoch. She spent her early years in Canal Flats, Bull River and Yahk before moving to Cranbrook. She completed high school there and then went to Victoria for Normal School. Her first year of teaching was in Fort Steele; it was the last year that there was a teacher there. She then taught in Cranbrook for a few years before moving to the coast. In 1955 she married Gordon Thompson and they lived on Thornhill in Maple Ridge for over 40 years. When Marie went back to teaching in the 60s she was instrumental in creating the remedial reading program in the district. She worked as principal’s relief at the east end schools, and also taught at many other elementary schools over the years. She ended her career in 1988 at Eric Langton. She was well known in the Thornhill community and was part of the crew that built the original Thornhill Hall. We can remember her and Dad cutting and painting the letters that made up the “THORNHILL PARK” sign on 100th Ave. She will be remembered for her love of children - at any baby shower, you could hand the new baby to Marie, and the baby would settle happily into Marie’s arms. Marie is survived by 6 children, Mary Parrish (Pat Rowe), Christie (John) Munro, Susan (Fred) Latulippe, Linda Cardinal (Kenny Neufeld) Tracy (Tim) Niemier and Peter Thompson, 5 grandchildren, Nicole (Todd) Parker, Donna and Carly Marsh, Ian and Steve Munro, and 2 great grandchildren, John and Elliette Parker. She is also survived by her sister Bertie Askew (Cranbrook) and her brother Bill Murdoch (Vernon) and many nieces and nephews and their children. Predeceased by her exhusband Gordon Thompson, her father and mother, brothers Jack and Bob and sister Jean Murdoch, son-in-law Fred Latulippe and grandchildren Daniel and Rachel Munro. Please join us to celebrate her life on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 1:00 at the Thornhill Hall, 26007 – 98th Ave, Maple Ridge, BC. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Plan Canada or a charity of your choice.

OLAFSON, Neil Ronald January 13, 1958 May 10, 2014 With a heavy heart and immeasurable sadness our family announces the sudden passing of Neil. Brother, uncle, son, nephew and a friend to all who met him. He was a gentle soul with a huge heart and to say we loved him and will miss him hardly seems enough. May your spirit soar in freedom from the fears that gripped so tight. May you find the peace you searched for as you wandered, lost, in the night. May your tortured mind be clear and calm, and your tender heart be warm. May you have no need for strength now; may there ne’er be another storm. May the music of the angels, be the sweet sounds that you hear, as you’re rocked in Heaven’s cradle, may you ne’er shed another tear. I’ll wear your memory proudly, my only brother...my best friend.
