A major housing proposal by the Tsawwassen First Nation could be just the tip of the iceberg in a huge residential transformation of the reserve. The TFN has been focusing on growing its industrial base since signing a treaty, but housing is another significant component looming on the horizon that could radically change the face of South Delta. The first move in that regard surfaced this month when a pair of band families began advertising

The TFN says its land use plan supports the development of “a complete community” by creating diverse neighbourhoods with a range of housing types. As far as the housing development that’s now planned within the enterprise zone, Howie Charter, managing director of Colliers International, told the Optimist the long-term lease provides a sense of certainty. “We’re planning on using the very same contractual models that are being used at Simon Fraser and at UBC, because there’s a very high degree of market acceptance for those models,” he said.

Hospital gets boost to ER staffing
Significant increase in patient load since 2006 had ER doctors calling on province to provide more funding BY
Delta Hospital’s emergency ward will get additional staffing in a new contract between emergency room doctors and the provincial government. Health Services Minister Kevin Falcon announced this week that 19 hospitals across the province will have increased physician shifts, including Delta Hospital, where the fulltime equivalent staff will go up from 7.3 to 9.15. The ministry and B.C.
Medical Association announced that over the next two years, the government would invest a total of $146 million for physician services in hospitals — $12 million more than the previous agreement. Periodically, the province and emergency physicians will review the changing demand in emergency rooms to ensure funding is allocated appropriately. The ministry and the emergency physicians agreed on how to distribute the new resources by using a rigorous model, the ministry stated.
Dr. Navdeep Grewal, spokesperson for the emergency physicians at Delta Hospital, said she’s pleased with the increase, noting they’ll be able to add one much needed shift. In an interview a few weeks ago, Grewal warned that patient demand at the ER has grown significantly since 2006. The hospital had not increased its staffing, she said, noting that
patient wait times were steadily increasing. Emergency room physicians across the province had gone public about what they said were serious staffing shortages, due in part to a stalemate in talks with the government. The three-year contract for ER physicians expired at the end of March, but Grewal said money was not
an issue for the doctors. She explained a joint committee of provincial officials, the B.C. Medical Association and ER doctors was created three years earlier to find a better formula for ER staffing at the 19 hospitals. The committee failed to reach a consensus and dissolved at the end of 2009. In an interview responding to the concerns raised a couple of months ago, Falcon told the Optimist the ministry and BCMA would jointly determine where additional resources
are needed most, just as what had been done in 2007 when there was an increase in full-time equivalent staff across the province by more than seven per cent, with Delta Hospital seeing an increase as well. He also noted, “In partnership with the Delta Hospital Foundation, we have also made significant capital investments to improve emergency department congestion at Delta Hospital, providing nearly $1.5 million to triple the floor space of the Delta ER.”

Kwantlen defends relationship with Century Group opposed to Southlands development concerned; university official calls deal part of modern academia BY
Opponents of Southlands development have called the relationship between Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the Century Group into question. Southlands the Facts said this week that information obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that in the spring of 2009, Century Group and Kwantlen signed a memorandum of understanding in which Century Group agreed to pay the university consulting services fees, and to provide additional endowment funding upon the approval of a development application for Southlands. Century Group has been marketing its development
proposal by using research performed by Kwantlen promoting agriculturalurbanism, however, neither party had disclosed the relationship and funding agreement, said the opponents. “The lack of disclosure is certainly disturbing,” stated Dana Maslovat, one of the organizers of Southlands the Facts, in a news release. “With any research, the organization has a responsibility to divulge their funding sources so that the public may form their own opinions of any potential bias in the conclusions. Rather than an independent research institution, this agreement basically turns KPU into a lobbyist for Century Group.” The Century Group is proposing to build 1,900 housing units of various
forms on the Southlands. Under the plan, 42 per cent (about 200 acres) of the land would be dedicated to urban agriculture and handed over to Delta. The proposal also includes a new Kwantlen campus that would focus on sustainable agricultural practices. Saying he’s upset some are trying to manufacture a controversy over his partnership with the university, Century Group president Sean Hodgins noted the memorandum has been made public since early this year when they created the ImagineSouthlands website. Hodgins also said he has spoken publicly on several occasions about Century’s commitment to a number of agricultural-related improvements to the land that will be dedicated to the
community. Chief among them, he noted, is the financial support to Kwantlen to create a “Centre of Urban Agriculture.” Responding to the questioning of his university’s motives, Jason Dyer, Kwantlen’s executive director of research and scholarship, told the Optimist that universities are evolving. They are more accountable to the public and funding agencies, needing to be seen to be doing something rather than just teaching, he said, noting what his university is doing is part of modern academia. “You name an institution, they do it. We’re engaged in what I call socially relevant research, which is where often research universities will be hired by government, both provincial and
federal, municipal and private organizations and companies to undertake research for them, usually around feasibility studies or policy statements.” Dyer said government funding is so small that universities must look elsewhere, but what’s more often the case is that others will seek to partner with post-secondary institutions. “Kwantlen is engaged with municipalities and companies all over our area. They come to us with a problem and we try to answer it. We call it sponsored research and it’s part of normal academia,” he said. As an institution, Dyer said, Kwantlen respects the academic integrity and freedoms of its researchers. One of many projects
Kwantlen is undertaking is a farm school in partnership with the City of Richmond. Dyer said it would teach people about urban agriculture, while the vision for the Southlands is to put that experience into practice. “The Century Group ultimately wants to put our expertise into practice and that was part of the feasibility study. Can this be done? We’d love to expand this to other municipalities,” he added. At a Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee meeting earlier this year, Kent Mullinix, a sustainable horticulture specialist with the university, made a presentation explaining how the Southlands would be an ideal site for what he termed “municipally enabled agriculture.”

Enough growth without developing Southlands
Opponents point to TFN reserve, golf course and infill BY
The major housing project planned for the Tsawwassen First Nation reserve is another argument against housing for the contentious Southlands property. That’s the view of Southlands the Facts spokesperson Dana Maslovat, commenting this week on a recent Delta Optimist story about a plan by a pair of TFN families to sell 123 acres that have the development potential for upwards of 1,100 singlefamily lots. “This is something that we have been talking for some time. It’s not that we’re opposed to growth, but there’s a lot of growth already planned and that needs to be taken into account,” said Maslovat. Southlands the Facts
has been lobbying to stop housing proposed for the Southlands. The owner of the property, the Century Group, has put forward a proposal that includes 1,900 units as well as a large portion of the site handed over to the municipality for urban agriculture. According to a design brief by the Century Group, the development, following concepts of new urbanism, would contain a variety of housing types ranging from cottages and granny flats to low-rise apartments and smaller family units. However, Maslovat noted that in addition to the hundreds of condos and townhomes under construction at the Tsawwassen Golf and Country Club, there’s also going to be a large amount of infill development taking place in the community. “They (Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee) talked
about some of the plans for infill, the potential for town centre infill to reach 31,000 people, which is a 10,000person increase,” he said. “What we’ve been talking about from the beginning is the suggestion from Century or anyone that Tsawwassen is going to wither up and die if we don’t get this development at the Southlands is that there’s lots of development going on and lots of potential people coming to Tsawwassen without having to put houses on farmland,” Maslovat said. Meanwhile, the Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee, which was to discuss the results of a municipal survey on several topics, including development on the Southlands, cancelled its meeting this week. Another meeting will be scheduled later this month.

Gambling addict is suing B.C. Lottery Corporation BY
A North Delta woman launched a lawsuit against the B.C. Lottery Corporation this week alleging the company’s self-exclusion program failed to help her curb her gambling addiction. Joyce May Ross filed a civil suit in B.C. Supreme Court Tuesday alleging negligence and breach of contract by BCLC and two Lower Mainland casinos for failing to stop her from entering the two facilities and gambling away more than $300,000. Ross has made headlines this week as the first person to ever sue the lottery corporation for not stopping her from gambling. The 54-year-old selfemployed businessperson started gambling around 1999 and by 2005 she was doing so on a daily basis, sometimes spending more than $1,000 a day. According to court documents filed this week, in June 2007, after suffering significant losses at both Fraser Downs and Cascades casinos, Ross,
feeling like she had lost any control over her gambling, went back to Fraser Downs to sign up for the BCLC Voluntary SelfExclusion program. The program allows people who feel they have a problem with gambling to sign up to exclude themselves from B.C. casinos. Participants in the program are photographed and sign a contract willingly barring themselves from gaming facilities for a period of six months to three years. Ross signed up thinking if she entered a casino in the future she would be escorted out by security. However, after a few weeks of staying away from gambling, she successfully entered and gambled at a Victoria casino. A few weeks after that, she has back gambling at Fraser Downs and Cascades. She claims that during the three years she was in the program, she lost about $331,000. Ross is seeking damages and restitution of the money she lost after joining the program.
Students get taste of policing
Graduates celebrate end of rigorous week-long summer academy BY
Twenty local students were standing a little taller and a little prouder this week as they completed the annual Delta Police Student Police Academy. On Tuesday, the 16 young men and four young women celebrated the end of a rigorous week, which included firearms and driver training, lessons in control tactics and operational scenarios, legal studies, drills and physical fitness. This summer marks the sixth year the department has hosted the academy. “This is an excellent program and allows young people a glimpse of what our officers experience in training and in their day-today duties,” said chief Jim Cessford upon inspecting the graduating class. “I am proud of the hard work that our officers put into not only this program but other youth initiatives,” said Cessford. “I also appreciate the effort of each student during this challenging week. I look forward to seeing some of them graduating from the

Route to finish line not direct TED MURPHY
MURPHY’S LAW It says something not too flattering about direct democracy rules in this province that the Fight HST folks are already planning their next move. You’d think that after collecting more than 700,000 signatures, equivalent to almost half the voters in the last provincial election, they’d be basking in the glow of having changed public policy when it comes to the wildly unpopular harmonized sales tax. Surely an outpouring of that magnitude would result in some meaningful modifications to the way in which government operates, but, sadly, that doesn’t appear it’s going be the case. With their efforts likely to result in little more than a failed bill in the legislature (at least from a procedural perspective), they will soon turn their attention to recall efforts against what they consider to be vulnerable Liberal MLAs. And, just like the citizen petition, they’ll find the sledding difficult because B.C.’s direct democracy legislation is simply set up for failure. When it comes to recall, compared to the citizen petition, the numbers are daunting: rather than three months to collect the signatures of 10 per cent of registered voters, recall gives organizers just two months to sign up a much more hefty 40 per cent of those on the voters list. Granted, this only needs to be accomplished in a single constituency, not the entire province like the anti-HST petition, but even so it’s such an uphill battle it’s never been accomplished before, although one MLA did resign when recallers got close. Delta South voters know just how difficult it is to recall an MLA, having lived through a near-successful one of former Liberal Val Roddick eight years ago. Even with widespread unrest over cuts to Delta Hospital services, it still wasn’t enough to unseat our elected representative as a couple thousand invalid signatures dropped the total collected just below the threshold necessary for victory. With Fight HST’s petition doomed for failure in Victoria at the hands of the ruling Liberals, its volunteer army will more than likely be mobilized early next year to embark on the treacherous road that is recall. It will be another attempt at making direct democracy work, an effort to get government to take notice of the electorate’s discontent by plucking some of its members from the benches of the legislature. Whether this dedicated bunch can make it happen remains to be seen. Legislation says it’s possible, but history hasn’t been so kind.
Sweatin’ the small stuff on behalf of Tsawwassenites IAN ROBERTSON
COMMUNITY COMMENT The Ipsos Reid survey report of the Tsawwassen Area Plan questions is in, and there are some who feel Delta council should have followed the chief administrative officer’s (CAO) report to the letter. I am not one of them. As I understand it, the CAO had a copy of the report only hours before it was presented to council. In a typical situation the CAO makes recommendations to council on matters coming before it. I assume that happened here. Some ask: “What needs more study?” “Why not simply implement according to the survey results?” One question dealt with residential building heights, which is of more significance to those in Beach Grove and in Boundary Bay than to the rest of us because they are confronted by larger/monster houses wedged between smaller cottages.
The Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee was drafting guidelines for heights in those communities. Councillors Bruce McDonald and Scott Hamilton were correct in suggesting the CAO’s recommendations be referred to the committee, and that the committee carefully consider them. Committee members will get finer details from the survey data as McDonald has already asked for a “drilling down” of data into some neighbourhoods. The town centre building height of four storeys is something I can support with a caveat. The current building owners attended a committee meeting last winter and indicated little interest in redeveloping with that height limit, thus consigning us to another decade or two of no change. We asked them about increased height, and until we got to eight to 10 storeys their eyes didn’t light up. My request for a land economist to tell us if four storeys are practical (it was in 1990) was left on the table. So, following the survey’s recommendation of a fourstorey maximum is to accept what we have for the foreseeable future. Increasing density in residential areas is a subject yet to be concluded by the committee. Our discussion draft suggests increasing the

density along major traffic routes within Tsawwassen in the form of row housing and, in some cases, apartments. The first and big question for many was the Southlands, where 62 per cent of residents in the survey said no to development. Where we go with this result remains to be seen; many more steps are needed to reach a conclusion and to incorporate a comprehensive policy. It will be a major part of the discussion when the area plan comes out this fall for public feedback and debate, and then a public hearing. Running in parallel, and with no coordination, is the Tsawwassen First Nation plan to build 1,100 housing units north of Highway 17 and west of 52nd Street (towards the ocean). This, along with the Tsawwassen Golf and Country Club redevelopment, may come close to being the number of units wanted by the Century Group for the Southlands. Those two developments will significantly increase our population from what we have today. Where do we go? Enjoy summer while some of us sweat over the detail. In the fall your council will be out asking for more opinions and you can express them at that time.

July 17, 2010 The Delta Optimist A09 Letters to the Editor
Public input lacking on Centennial improvements Editor: At its meeting on July 12, Delta council endorsed a Metro Vancouver plan whereby the public will not be consulted regarding the location of a proposed washroom/concession/ future restaurant building on municipally-owned land at Centennial Beach. Metro is planning to construct a combination washroom/concession with provision for a future res-
taurant — a single building trying to be all things to all users — in an area just north of the newly constructed play area. This location is a considerable distance from the current washroom location and main beach activity area and is adjacent to a sensitive habitat area. Further, it appears from Metro Vancouver’s Centennial Beach Site Concept Plan that this
single structure is designed to service the entire beach/ park area. The assertion that public will not be consulted regarding the building location is contained in the council report, Centennial Beach Concept Plan and Washroom/Concession Building Replacement Update, available on Delta’s website. Council endorsed Metro’s plan for relocation of the
existing washroom/concession building to this new site despite the fact Metro acknowledges the new location is contentious, and that even Delta council members (Scott Hamilton and Robert Campbell) argue is the wrong location. Council also instructed staff to “enter into discussion regarding modifying the lease to address Metro’s concerns with placing the washroom/concession
building on municipal land.” In addition to other provisions, Metro wants changes in its lease to “ensure that Metro Vancouver retains the ability to build a destination restaurant at a future date.” Thus it appears Delta council is prepared to enter into a binding lease agreement with Metro to permit future construction of a destination restaurant, a use
that is not currently permitted on public use zoned parkland. Once again, council appears to be following its own agenda without proper public consultation. In this case, it appears to be willing to allow Metro Vancouver planners to proceed with whatever they decide — without input from park users or Delta residents. Kent Warmington
New arrivals put pressure on to construct thousands of housing units data and projections. It reads in part: “The major factor driving population growth over this period [2007-2036] will be migration to British Columbia. International migration will account for 75.1 per cent of the population gain, followed by interprovincial migration at 24.6 per cent, and natural increase (births minus deaths) at about 0.2
per cent.” Births currently exceed deaths, but this is expected to reverse over the projected period. Interprovincial migration comes and goes from year to year, I assume depending on where the jobs are. The big increase, international migration, has been reasonably constant for years and is projected to remain so, as long as

Put your summer tires back on, get the paint protected and give the interior a good cleaning - as well as taking care of any and all summer maintenance which might be required. Here are some tips and points to ready your wheels for warmer weather and summertime road trips. Exterior: Wiper blades play an extremely important role in increasing visibility. Replace every six months or when cracked, cut, torn, streaking or chattering. Check the tires’ tread depth. Also check the tire inﬂation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, which could indicate the need John Alevras for a wheel alignment. Also look for any bulges and bald spots. Owner COUNTRY Check under the hood: TIRELAND Check all ﬂuids. There are several ﬂuids that require attention, including engine oil, power steering ﬂuid, brake and transmission ﬂuids, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. The antifreeze/ coolant should be refreshed every two years. Review your service manual and change any ﬂuids that might need to be replaced, or take your ride to your favourite shop to have the work done professionally. Don't take ﬂuids lightly - many a mechanic says that they’re the life-blood of your vehicle. If you neglect them, you shouldn’t expect your car to be healthy for the long term. Also make sure to change your air ﬁlter on time as well, as a plugged or dirty ﬁlter can cost you performance and mileage. Check hoses and belts: www.countrytireland.com A belt that fails can affect the www.tireland.ca electrical system, air conditioning and power steering, as well as the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps that appear to be in NEW TIRES & MAGS • COMPUTERIZED BALANCING marginal condition FULLY GUARANTEED • BUY/SELL/TRADE • BRAKES/SHOCKS/TUNE UPS may need to be replaced.

Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised over
during the month of June for research in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.
Funds raised from the June, 2010 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.

eral times and asks himself why he feels like he’s just been run over by a truck. So I wondered what he did to get out of the depths of despair. Fortunately he tells us. He says remembering the good old days only made him more depressed, but remembering God and putting his hope in Him (not in himself) was what finally turned the tide. The results weren’t instant (though we have been taught by our culture that everything should be!). What is described is a kind of mental and emotional wrestling match in which faith and unbelief try to pin each other to the mat. But God is faithful when we keep clinging to Him.

Do you ever get bogged down in life? Do you ever find yourself stuck in the mud of discouragement? I have, and in wondering how to get unstuck, I recently stumbled upon Psalms 42 and 43 where the ancient poet looked at himself in the mirror and asked, “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad?” We say that “misery loves company” and perhaps that is why I found some encouragement simply in reading those words. I think it was encouraging to know that my discouragement was normal — that all kinds of people in all times and places experience deep disappointment. “My tears have been my food day and night,” said the Psalmist. Indeed, he looks in the mirror sev-

Local libraries host many events BY
hether you want to escape the heat for a few hours or just engage your brain for a bit, South Delta’s libraries have a plethora of programs and events, as well as air conditioned places, to keep patrons occupied, entertained and cool this summer. Delta library manager Gillian McLeod said the library is a place where people of all ages can find something to do on any given day. “The range there is what I’m particularly impressed with,” she said, adding all programs and events offered at Delta’s libraries are free. While younger children are enjoying storytime, older ones and parents can browse the books, read a magazine or newspaper, or explore the World Wide Web. And there is a Summer Reading Club for readers of any age. McLeod said that the variety of programs and services available at Delta’s libraries means every member of the family can find something to do in the same place. Ongoing programs • Summer Reading Club Find out how much fun reading can be this summer. This year’s theme is Reading Rocks! There is a Summer Reading Club for everyone at Delta libraries.

A brush with celebrity in Carmel BY
had a colleague who lived in Carmelby-the-Sea, Calif., years ago when her husband was transferred there. She said the name with wistful breathlessness and rolled her eyes heavenward at the memory: “Carmel.” This sleepy village of just a few thousand (mostly millionaires), with its proximity to the ocean, Big Sur and Clint Eastwood’s personal B&B, meant I couldn’t pass it up on a recent trip to the state’s Bay area. My guidebook told me it was the Californian version of New York’s Hamptons. Well, then. My husband and I visited this spring to drive the dramatic oceanside Highway 1 just to the south of Carmel, known as Big Sur. Located about two hours south of San Francisco on the southern bend of the Monterey Peninsula, the tiny village has no street numbers, parking meters or streetlights, and no sidewalks outside of the “downtown” centered around Ocean Avenue. Residents must go to the central post office to retrieve their mail, and houses — many of them small hobbit-like cottages — are identified by either quaint names such as “Doll House” or “Sea Urchin,” or the more modern way, for example, “Lincoln Street, 4SE of 13th Avenue.” The village keeps itself quaint by forbid-

ding any chain stores or restaurants. But it allows high-end boutiques such as Louis Vuitton and Tiffany, to give you an idea of the residents. There also appear to be far too many jewelry stores and art galleries to support the population. Mainly, the streets were full of tourists, either day-trippers or people renting oceanside cottages. Luckily, Eastwood’s Mission Ranch had an official address, so we found it easily. But then, Eastwood was mayor of Carmelby-the-Sea from 1986 to 1988, so I suppose he can do whatever he wants. Eastwood acquired the ranch, complete with a herd of sheep and several cozy cot-

tages, in 1986 to save the property from condo development. We happened to arrive in Carmel the day after Eastwood’s 80th birthday. At dinner at the ranch’s wellknown restaurant, we overheard the table next to us discussing how servers brought out cake and sang happy birthday the night before, but Eastwood never showed up. He doesn’t live on the property, our waiter informed us, but has a home just down the street, and shows up on the ranch often. Then, while enjoying my fettuccini on the patio, The Man With No Name appeared. He breezed by the unfazed dining guests and walked the short distance to the sheep field. He then hopped a fence to herd
the sheep into their pens, tossing a bale of hay or two and chatting with the property manager. Then he came back to the restaurant, got in his minivan and left. Famous people! They’re just like us. Still slightly stunned from witnessing Eastwood’s sheep wrangling, we went inside to the lounge and sat at the bar, where a piano player performed a kind of high-class karaoke with people gathered around singing tunes. (The night gets a little hazy from here.) Now, to say a town where the average cottage is a cool $2 million and street numbers are not allowed produces some interesting characters is a bit of an understatement. Perhaps the fact we were the only ones under 31 made us stand out as tourists, but we had no trouble making friends. “These guys are fiercely competitive,” a regular to my right informed me, motioning towards the karaoke singer. Moments later, he challenged me to try his favourite scotch after noting my girlie glass of Glenfiddich on ice. (“Oh, you don’t take it neat?”) Of course, I met this challenge. Somewhere beyond 1 a.m., I noticed that some people in these parts clearly don’t have to get up for work on a Wednesday. My new friend said something vague about being in the construction industry. Hmm. The next morning, I cursed his name. But even if I wanted to thank him, I would never be able to; he doesn’t have a street address to look up.

Staying hydrated key in warmer weather body. Anything from decongestants to antidepressants can intensify dehydration and decrease your body’s ability to sense it. Even caffeine and alcohol can cause dehydration a lot faster. Join me as I lead a Stretch & Abs class by donation on Friday, July 23 at 5 p.m. at Diefenbaker Park. Proceeds raised will go to the Delta Hospital Foundation. Email me for more information at info@ fitnesswithpj.com. P.J.

taying hydrated through the summer is crucial, and I am not talking about Molson’s and margaritas. We lose a majority of our fluids through sweating and, if not properly replaced, we can experience symptoms ranging from fatigue to headaches, weakness to dry mouth and muscle cramps and nausea. These are not great symptoms to have when one is about to hit the track or the Fred Gingell stairs. Heat and dehydration can affect people in different ways. Children tend to gain heat faster, because they have a larger surface area in relation to body mass. Athletes and exercisers who spend hours competing and training in the sun often do not have adequate intake of fluid to make up for the loss of fluids caused by their activities. Outdoor workers, such as landscapers, construction crews, police officers, postal employees and others who spend most of their days in the heat, often have little time for bathroom breaks or for drinking fluids and, as a result, may not consume enough fluids during their workdays. Heat can affect elderly people in a more profound way, which is why it’s extremely important for senior citizens to practice a gradual acclimatization to heat that puts emphasis on hydration. The best time to consume fluids is before you are thirsty. Once thirsty, your body is already in a mild state of dehydration. When
The sea salt replaces all the minerals and sodium we lose by sweating. Do not fret about increasing your sodium count with sea salt. Unrefined sea salt does not react with the body the same way table salt does. In fact, I do all my cooking and baking with this product too. Other Hot Weather Tips: • While pouring water over your head might feel good, it does not have any affect on your core body temperature. Make sure you put plenty of water and other fluids into your body. • Always wear lightcoloured and loose-fitting clothing. • Keep drinks accessible when exercising. Store all fluids in easy-to-use containers that can be opened without disrupting your exercise. • Carry a hydration pack for convenience. • Wear a hat to protect your head and shield your eyes from the sun. • Ease into summer exercise. It takes the body around 14 days to acclimatize itself to the heat. Slowly add onto your intensity with each workout. • Exercise first thing in the morning. • Protect yourself with sunglasses and sunscreen. • Put your water bottle in the freezer overnight for an ice-cold treat while working out. • Know your meds. Many medications aggravate the effects of the heat on the

Well on Your Way
it comes to working out, most people are not aware that how much fluid they consume before their workout will reflect whether they have a great workout, a mediocre one or bonk halfway through. Adults need 17 to 20 ounces of fluid before beginning activity, as well as an additional seven to 10 ounces every 10 to 20 minutes during activity. And your fluid needs don’t stop when your activity is over. You should consume 24 ounces of fluid within the first two hours after outdoor activity. Children need four to eight ounces of fluid before beginning outdoor activities and five to nine ounces every 20 minutes while they are outside. Once kids return from outside play or activity, they also need to consume 24 ounces of fluids within the first two hours after they have stopped their activities. Not sure what an ounce is? One adult-size gulp of fluid equals one ounce of fluid, and one child-size gulp of fluid equals onehalf ounce of fluid. Another popular way to hydrate while exercising is to drink a sports drink or vitamin water. I am not a fan of either, due to the sugar and extra calorie count these provide. However, I do agree we need a beverage that replaces the electrolytes we lose through sweat and provides carbohydrate energy to the working muscles. I recommend a great product I found at Thrifty Foods called Sport Vega. These single-serving packets mix right in your water and add a bit of flavour as well as vitamins and electrolytes, and all at less than 60 calories a packet. I also get my clients to sprinkle a little bit of unrefined sea salt in their water.

“If you would understand your own age, read the works of fiction produced in it. People in disguise speak freely.” — Arthur Helps. After all the excitement of recent rambles, let’s get back to “plain living and high thinking,” to use a phrase I heard my mother use occasionally. Here’s a reference to a Tsawwassen developer in the form of a limerick by Ken Oakley: Here’s to Ron Toigo, a man of great skills, Wants to change the golf course down there in the hills, A new clubhouse and new greens, And new homes so it seems, Made plain and simple without many frills. All right, I know it’s not a perfect limerick, but it has a reasonable resemblance to that form of poetry. *** The introductory quo-
JULY SAVINGS! DON’T MISS OUT!!
for review from Harbour Publishing is Boat Camping Haida Gwaii by Neil Frazer, but I doubt it will be a part of my library and will end up on the Blue Serenity, the 45-foot powersailer of the Darlingtons at Duncan. The wild archipelago of Haida Gwaii, 150 islands off our west coast, is a slice of Canadian geography that’s hard to ignore. With information on ancient native settlements, hidden campsites and everything in between, this is the perfect guide for kayakers and small boat voyagers eager to explore the natural beauty of the area. This comprehensive guide has a wide range of maps and photographs offering field-tested paddling and boating routes to the islands’ attractions. Detailed information is given about Masset and Juskatla inlets, Haida Gwaii’s great inland sea. Descriptions are given of campsites and lots of information on bear safety, tides and currents (not the edible kind) and information about the history and culture of the Haida.
tation that opened this ramble has absolutely nothing to do with the subject of Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwest by Andy Lamb and Phil Edgell and published by a firm that has long been in the centre of a fishing area, namely Harbour Publishing of Madeira Park. Written by a marine biologist and illustrated by a prize-winning underwater photographer, this work identifies over 250 fish by species and common names. It’s illustrated with 250 labelled sketches and 550 colour photographs. The information provided for each fish gives detailed descriptions of habitat, distribution and behaviour. Sections present catching tips for anglers and commercial fishermen along with location hints for divers, beachcombers and pleasure boaters, and cooking ideas for seafood gourmets — everything that a fisherman, diver or naturalist needs to know. It’s a book that will be given a permanent position in my personal library. *** Another book received

SUMMER ESSENTIALS SALE
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. If you have been to a spa you have probably heard from your esthetician that exfoliation is very important to maintain beautiful skin. As we age our epidermal layers (outer layers) of our skin increase in thickness, causing the skin to look duller and prevent our natural moisturizing factors to rise to the surface to moisturize and protect the skin. The Dermis where blood vessels, collagen, elastin, oil glands and hair follicles are contained starts to lose density. These two factors lead us to believe that exfoliation removes the excess heavy burden of the dead cells to prevent lines from forming and also in the case of oily skin prevents the oil from blocking, causing blemishes, therefore concluding that exfoliation is good for all skin types.
There are so many options available to treat skin conditions in the spa from advanced age defying treatments to problematic acne skin, or simply to maintain healthy skin. We suggest that you find an esthetician you can trust to work with. Estheticians at Atlantis Day Spa are highly trained in skin care and have a number of professional and also pharmaceutical grade skin care products to help you choose your home care and achieve your best personal results. Receiving spa treatments will boost the results you can achieve, and using your personalized prescribed home care will maintain those results between your treatments.

Aveda strives to ensure their products will not only benefit customers through exceptional performance, but will positively impact the people and economies from which the product’s ingredients are sourced. This effort is supported by the beauty company’s development of a “green ingredients” policy. Aveda has been phasing out parabens from its existing product formulas; as well as, developing new formulas without parabens. This effort started in 2005 and manufacturing of the last products still formulated with parabens ended on September 30, 2009. Since 2000, Aveda has substantially increased purchases of organic raw herbal ingredients and organic essential oils from 20% - 25% of total tonnage to 89-90%. The exact percentage varies slightly from year to year due to product mix and availability of certified ingredients. Aveda products are not formulated with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

No easy path to nationals for Pioneers Third place finish means senior lacrosse team on collision course with two-time defending champs in semis BY
So much for the best team on paper in franchise history producing an easy path to next month’s national championships. The Ladner Pioneers (12-3-1) have plenty of work to do if they want to be representing B.C. at the President’s Cup in Burnaby after a disappointing third place finish in league play. The result means a bestof-three quarter-final series against the Valley Rebels. They should take care of their Abbotsford opponent in prompt fashion but then will have a quarter-final date with longtime rival Tri-Cities Bandits (13-2-1). The twotime defending West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association champions have swept the Pioneers out of the playoffs in each of the past two seasons. Ladner had opened the 2010 campaign with seven straight wins and an unbeaten regular season didn’t seem out of the question. Its roster was loaded with one time prominent WLA players and even NLL regulars. The Pioneers first hiccup was a 12-10 loss to the Bandits back on June 10. They rebounded with three straight wins but then dropped another pivotal game at home — 10-8 to
the eventual regular season champion Burnaby Burrards (14-1-1). Two nights later, they were stunned 11-6 by the Royal City Capitals and suddenly a first place finish was all but dead. The Pioneers still had an outside shot at earning an opening round bye for the playoffs but that ended when they could only manage a 6-6 tie with the Burrards on July 7. They finished with a losing record (1-2-1) against the two teams above them in the standings — a trend that must change over the next few weeks. “It’s time we get it all together and see what this team is made of,” said Ladner head coach Ross Frehlick. “Looking back, the loss to Royal City is what really hurt us. We took a ton of penalties, but that is still no excuse. We also simply have to score more goals against a team like Burnaby. They have a goalie who has played well and given us trouble.” Even with Kyle Goundrey, Trent Smalley and Sean Kelly among the top 10 in league scoring and local standout Gary Bining back in town for the playoffs, Frehlick didn’t sit still when finalizing his roster at the July 1 deadline. The team added former
Andrew Gee and the rest of the Ladner Pioneers begin their road to towards earning a President’s Cup berth this weekend. WLA rookie-of-the-year Kevin Olson and National Lacrosse League veteran Spencer Martin. Both were key members of the Burnaby Lakers dominance in the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League.
To make room for the additions, the Pioneers had to release three players including Tyler Lietz who had produced 25 points in 10 games. “Tyler is a good kid who I like a lot,” added Frehlick.
“He is young and athletic but unfortunately we had some difficult decisions to make.” Look for Ladner to also make a change in net for the first time in nearly two decades as Matt Morehouse
is expected to get the bulk of the work in the post-season over veteran Rob Cook. The opening round series against the Valley Rebels began last night in Ladner. Game two goes Sunday in Abbotsford.
Tsawwassen pro sixth at CPGA Senior Championship Earlier, Stubbs earned alternate status for the upcoming U.S. Senior Open at the Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, WA after shooting a 73 at a sectional qualifier in Salem, OR. He was just one shot back of the winning score. The 51-year-old teaching pro was also second at the PGA of B.C. Senior Championship in Chilliwack. Extra holes ... Former Beach Grove junior standout and now Victoria resident Bree Sharratt took home the B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur title
in Cobble Hill, topping the leaderboard at 13-over 229. After the completion of the final MidAmateur round, two-time B.C. Women’s Amateur champion Christina Proteau of Port Alberni was tied for first with Sharratt. However, the final Mid-Amateur grouping was each assessed a one stroke penalty for failing to make the pace of play guidelines. The penalty was appealed unsuccessfully and resulted in Sharratt emerging as the Mid-Amateur champion.

“I was really nervous the first two days – I haven’t played in a tournament in a year,” says Sharratt. “My dad was my caddie and he kept me calm and helped me line up my putts to go in the hole. Lots went in - especially today!” “I’ve always wanted to win the MidAmateur title – I’m pretty excited. This is great!” Sharratt, 32, enjoyed an impressive collegiate career at Colorado State University where she was a four-time Academic AllAmerican.

Cove Links professional Daryl Stubbs continued his impressive play this summer with a sixth place finish at last week’s Senior CPGA Championship in Milton, ON. The Tsawwassen resident finished at even par after firing rounds of 71-69-76 to earn $1,400. The top of the leaderboard featured a pair of B.C. players familiar to Canadian golf fans as Jim Rutledge cruised to a 10-shot victory with a 17 under total that included a course record 62 in the second round. Runner-up was longtime PGA Tour regular Dave Barr.

Invaders ready for provincials
The ’93 South Delta Invaders recently ran the ’99 Invaders through their paces as the two rep girls fastpitch team prepared for their respective provincial championships this weekend. The ’99 Invaders had an extremely successful season as they managed to knock off two older opponents in order to qualify for the provincials. It is the first time in recent history that a first-year Squirt Invader team has accomplished this. The ’93 Invaders will be competing in provincials for the sixth straight year, along with the ‘91 Invaders who had a strong season at the Midget “B” level. Congratulations to the ’96 Invader Pee Wee team which also earned a B.C. berth, while the ‘94 Invaders will be competing at the Bantam A provincials later this month in South Surrey.
The provincial bound 1993 and 1999 South Delta Invaders rep fastpitch teams hooked up for a practice last week.

The team travelled to the Okanagan city for the second year running for the annual Canada Day Tournament, July 3-4.

Both ties resulted in victories thanks to the penalty kick shootout format. This was enough for a spot in the final against a Calgary team that had beaten the Athletics handily (6-3) the day before. In the final, the girls battled through injuries and fatigue to secure an unlikely scoreless draw and send the match to

Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps them near.
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden and untimely passing of our dear daughter, wife, mother, sister, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and friend. Mary left this world as we know it in the early hours of July 13th, 2010. Mary will forever live in the memories of her mom, Veronica Kavanagh, her dearly beloved husband and soul mate Rob, and her two precious children, son Brandon (11), daughter Kiya (4) and a special young man who was like a son to her, Dillon Brodowich, brother Joe and sisters Marcy and Marie, Mother-in-law Ellen Humchitt, father-in-law Bob (Burma) Brodowich, a large extended family and numerous nieces and nephews. Mary is predeceased by her father Joseph Kavanagh (2008). A celebration of Mary’s life will be held on Sunday, July 18th from 2-4 pm at the Fisherman Hall 4481 Savoy St. Ladner B.C. A heart of gold stopped beating Hard working hands went to rest She lived her life for those she loved And those she loved will remember.
In Memoriam IN MEMORIAM
1927- July 15, 2010 Charlie passed away quietly at Delta Hospital of a stroke. We will always remember him for his good humour and love of life, his dedication to his daily yoga exercise and the sauna at Windskill in his later years. He was happiest traveling the world, visiting with his grandchildren and puttering in his English style garden in Tsawwassen. Born in London, a Cockney and proud of it, in a family of 8 siblings he immigrated to Canada in 1955, was a member of the Bricklayers’ Union for 51 years. Of course he said that he had one year off for coffee breaks. Charlie met and married a young widow, Belle Maynard Hogg, with three children. He would tell you that he survived the Great Depression, World War II, the London Blitz, Evacuation, cancer, asbestosis and 50 years of marriage. Belle, the children, family and friends will miss him very much. A memorial service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 8440 Williams Rd., Richmond, B.C. on Monday, July 19, at 11 am. Family and friends are invited to share in those happy moments that we’ve all enjoyed together. No flowers please.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A truly romantic month begins July 22. Two years of slow slogging in work end, but your relationships begin a two-year phase of sobriety and “slow movement.” Now to late 2012, if you take an antagonistic approach the best you’ll win is freedom; you’ll lose in most else. Until October 2012, these do not work: chasing love for ego reasons, seeking recognition, fame, trying to optimistically sell to new clients. These do work: loyalty (e.g., old clients, present spouses) romance with other generations, career partnerships, cooperation. Tuesday night: understanding brings joy! Taurus April 20-May 20: Remain ﬂexible, curious, restless and talkative until mid-week. You could obtain a last-minute agreement Sunday-Tuesday. Secrets, investments, intimacy, lifestyle choices are important and fortunate Tuesday eve/night. But be cautious with these Wednesday/Thursday. Thursday begins a month of home-related, security, family, property and similar themes (gardening, landscaping, nutrition, kid’s welfare, etc.) This week also begins 26 months of slowness in work, employment, machinery and health zones. Kids will be more work. Rewards come from hard work. Avoid lawsuits. You’ll be ﬁne! Gemini May 21-June 20: Thursday begins a fourweek period of heightened communications, travel, restlessness and casual friendships. You’ll generally love this time. Be curious, ask questions, go exploring, open newspapers. Now to October 2012, your loves and pleasures meet sobriety. Romance, hobbies, sports, risk-taking, creative projects and the pursuit of pleasure – all become harder, slower. But this area can succeed if you’re prepared to be responsible and loyal. Romance could ﬂower with an older or younger person. You’ll succeed in research, investments, sex and health. This week’s future plan is wrong.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase romance, pleasure, beauty and creative or sports success Sunday to Tuesday – you’ll ride a winning streak! Jobs begun Tuesday night will succeed. Thursday begins a productive four-week phase of earnings, spending, memory and other possessions. But this week also begins 26 months of increased responsibility in domestic arenas, with kids, property, security, nutrition and all foundational concerns. You’ll have to work harder at these, and you might decide to let go of some situations (or relationships) that are just too much work. This week’s “career partnership” idea won’t work. Wait.

604-630-3300 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: No ﬁreworks, but this week is a turning point. Now to October 2012, you will be more sober, practical, no-nonsense. You will be determined to put your life on a sound foundation, especially in real estate, family and similar areas. Yes, retirement’s coming! You’ll do this slowly and carefully. A major or basic change might be involved: e.g., relocation. Relationships need to be looked at. If you’ve been a party type, that ends for two years. Thursday starts a month of travel, talk, friends, errands. Be curious! DON’T start a relationship or negotiations this week; one might end.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22:You travel a lucky money streak (to Aug. 6) so take advantage, buy luxury items, ask for a pay raise, negotiate a deal, etc. DON’T overspend. Money can ﬂow through you like water, and you could end up poorer, despite taking more in! (If you’re into self-knowledge, look at the underlying reasons: Guilt? Lack of optimism?) Your weeks of weariness end Thursday, when a month of energy, charisma, effectiveness and clout begin! However, this isn’t a good week to start major projects. A romantic notion ends. The two years ahead slow communications, yet make this a fertile employment ﬁeld.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mellow yields to functional. Thursday ends weeks of fairly relaxed pondering, love, cultural pursuits, understanding and begins a month of ambition, prestige and career effort. Dress well, be prepared to meet bosses, higher-ups. But don’t start any work projects yet – wait until next week. This week ends two years of restricted socializing. Now to October 2012 you’ll meet fairly easy progress in many areas. However, dealings with government agencies, institutions and head ofﬁce might be burdensome – more red tape, more communication levels with which to deal: effort needed.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Every party must end, every high note yield to a quieter one. Have your fun (and travel, contact people) Sunday to Tuesday. Be domestic, rest up mid-week. (Real estate, kids’ savings plans are lucky Tuesday night.) Thursday begins a month of quietude, rest and retreat. However, a bunch of social inﬂuences will keep you interactive: your graciousness will continue; but your smouldering sexuality will yield to talkativeness. Still, get your rest. Contemplate, plan, do charitable things, deal with government agencies. DO NOT invest, change your life, or “start sex” this week.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lie low, work in the background Sunday to Tuesday. Think about your future, and how to get there. Your energy returns Tuesday eve to Thursday – but this is not a good week to start any project – or romance. Work on what’s already started, on research, ﬁnances, health, intimacy and safety. Thursday begins a month of mellow love and understanding, intellectual prowess, higher education, far travel, cultural involvements. Two years of hard career burdens end now; but two years of sober social activity begin, involving other generations or money (e.g., take the boss golﬁng).
July 18 - 24 Capricorn Dec.22-Jan.19: Relationships move from centre-stage to “under-stage” – they begin to operate secretly, subconsciously, or intimately. In business, you move from negotiation to actual funding. You bond more deeply, or break apart.This, for the month ahead. The present week brings another turning point: two years of philosophical outlook, of learning or studying situations, ends. A two-year career, ambition, prestige and status phase, the most important in 30 years, begins. Live up to it! Start nothing this week except a security or realty deal. Happiness, Sunday-Tuesday! Power, energy late week. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: At last, a month of weariness and drudgery ends – so do two years of ﬁnancial restrictions! The weeks ahead bring fresh horizons, competition, opportunities, ﬁghts and loves, negotiation and litigation. The rancour and intensity of last winter and spring has ﬂed, so if you’re in a ﬁght, it’s possible to work out a deal; if you don’t, August/September could bring a lawsuit, a long, dreary, unproﬁtable one. If you aren’t ﬁghting, the weeks ahead bring exciting meetings, intimate affections, sweet whispers. Careful with your speech this week: stray words return to bite. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The past two years have brought restrictions, even disappointment in relationships. If you’ve succeeded, found love or fine partners, healed bonds, it has only come through hard work. Now, this phase ends. The two years ahead (to October 2012) transfer this need for “hard work” to your sexual and financial spheres. You can truly achieve your dreams in these areas – if you work hard to that end. Nothing comes of nothing. The month ahead features work, heath and machines. Be wise Sunday-Tuesday, ambitious mid-week, social Friday/ Saturday. Don’t spend big, nor start a money project. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
