Much work underway, or planned, for South Delta’s main corridor BY
Big changes are happening along Highway 17. Construction has begun on a $12 million interchange that’s part of the $1 billion South Fraser Perimeter Road highway that will stretch all the way to Highway 1. The interchange will be built adjacent to the existing Highway 17 crossing of the B.C. Rail line and will connect Deltaport Way and Highway 17 traffic to the SFPR. “This project sets the stage for improving Metro Vancouver’s major road network,” said Transportation Minister Shirley Bond. “The interchange will connect to the new South Fraser Perimeter Road, which will reduce heavy truck traffic on community streets, improve the movement of people and goods and will create up to 7,000 jobs.” To be completed in August 2011, minimal traffic delays

There’s also going to be a new overpass at 28th Avenue. To be completed by the end of next
March, the work is being delivered by the SFPR project team on behalf of Port Metro Vancouver, according to the ministry. The $4.7 million contract involves construction of an “agricultural
structure” over the highway and associated embankments. Further down the road, work is continuing on Tsawwassen Springs, a redevelopment of the Tsawwassen Golf and Country
Club that includes 490 housing units and a lengthened course. The project is bordered by Highway 17 and 52nd Street, where the intersection will also undergo an upgrade. Across the road from Tsawwassen Springs, things could also change with construction of a major commercial centre on Tsawwassen First Nation property. The TFN Economic Development Corporation as been in talks with a firm regarding opportunities for the band’s commercial zone fronting the highway. At this point it’s not clear whether the site will have a mall, big box stores or some other form of retail. A TFN spokesperson said details on what’s being contemplated are not being released at this time, but there will likely be an update made public by late November.

Cemetery to expand BY
of vulnerable children was on the physical health and well-being scale, according to the study, which found vulnerability in that area over time has increased. Overall, the largest increase in overall vulnerability was in the Nordel neighbourhood. In B.C., about 30 per
cent of children were found to be vulnerable in an area, thus at risk of being developmentally behind. Delta’s results have remained fairly constant throughout the course of the study and slightly better than the provincial average. Kathy Guild, director of special programs for the Delta school district, said the district reviews the EDI data and bases the placement of StrongStart prekindergarten programs on those results. “That data really targets how our kids are doing before our kids come to school. It’s looking at how early childhood services in the community are responding to the needs of kids. So the intent is to have a look at and provide guidance
where in our community we need to focus more support for young children and their families,” explained Guild. The Delta district also has an early childhood development committee that works in partnership with many service providers to target young children in neighbourhoods considered potentially at risk. The study’s intent is to also show this country does little from a government policy perspective to assist the development of children under five compared to other nations, Guild added. The HELP study noted the B.C. government, as part of its overall strategic plan, has articulated the goal of reducing EDI vulnerability to 15 per cent by 2015.
Civic politicians have approved expansion plans for both the Boundary Bay and North Delta cemeteries. A report from Ken Kuntz, Delta’s director of parks, recreation and culture, outlined the need for an expansion at Boundary Bay Cemetery following a review earlier this year. The cemetery was last reviewed in 2003. At that time, it was estimated capacity would be reached in another 10 to 12 years. Between January 2005 and December 2009, 157 full burial lots and 251 cremation lots were sold. Currently, Boundary Bay has 155 full burial lots left and is expected to reach capacity in fourand-a-half years. There are 327 cremation lots available and capacity is expected to be reached in six years. “Once this cemetery reaches its sold out capacity, the sale of rights of interment will cease unless alternate services are provided,” Kuntz stated in the report. “With land being expensive, many cemeteries have turned to alternative means of creating capacity, the most common being niche walls (a series of vertical vaults in which cremated remains may be placed).” The expansion plan for Boundary Bay includes the addition of 70 full burial plots, 485 niches and 15 boulder scattering areas at an estimated cost of $400,000. The expansion would add two years to the burial lot capacity and another 10 years to the cremation lots. The expansion plan will be implemented in stages.
by the band for housing, which would include a new interchange. The housing component is envisioned for the future and isn’t being pursued for now, said Baird. Across the highway from that new housing development would be a future cultural centre. Developments planned by the TFN are part of a major economic transformation envisioned for the band’s 724 acres of treaty settlement land, which now have an assessed value of a quarter-billion dollars.
When the business and residential components are eventually developed, thousands will be coming and going from the reserve using the highway. Meanwhile, just up the road from the Tsawwassen Golf and Country Club redevelopment, nothing is on the horizon for the property once occupied by the Smith residence, located at the corner of 56th Street and Highway 17. The vacant property, which is in the Agricultural Land Reserve, was pur-
chased by the Century Group a couple of years ago. It’s the first thing that greets motorists as they get off the highway to enter Tsawwassen, but Century Group president Sean Hodgins told the Optimist there are no plans to do anything with the land at this time. He said he has doubts he would be allowed to build anything beneficial for the community there. Another property, the former Paterson Park racetrack, further up the highway in Ladner also
remains vacant. Located at the corner of Ladner Trunk Road, the large site could be another focal point for Delta, but the municipality has no plans for now to build anything on its half of the property. The eastern portion of the site is owned by Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Last year university president David Atkinson said it had conversations with Delta regarding the land and a committee was looking at various possibilities for its future.
The feedback has been all positive from special needs students at South Delta Secondary where Vancouver Giants Cain Franson (back left) Connor Redmond (back right) are peer tutoring for the school’s Evergreen program. Redmond graduated from the high school last year but came back to continue volunteering as a peer tutor, encouraging students to rise to their potential. Franson is a student at SDSS and chose peer tutoring as part of his curriculum. Student peer tutors encourage positive self esteem while helping others meet their personal challenges.
Students arrive ‘vulnerable’
Study finds 27 per cent of those in kindergarten behind in some form of development BY
About 27 per cent of children entering kindergarten in Delta are already behind in key areas and too many never catch up, according to an ongoing study. Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP), an inter-university research network headquartered at UBC, recently released the latest results of its study on the number of “vulnerable” children entering the school system in B.C. It measures five areas: physical health and wellbeing, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive development, and communication skills and general
knowledge. Kindergarten teachers use a checklist, known as an Early Development Instrument (EDI), on each child in their class after they’ve known them for several months. The study, taking place over several years and its measurements broken down into different waves, divides the Delta district into 12 neighbourhoods. It found 27.2 per cent of children were vulnerable in at least one area of development, a small increase from the 26.6 per cent recorded the prior wave. The study found that vulnerability is increasing in 53 of 59 school districts across the province. The Delta district has a high proportion of children

Adjacent to the band’s commercial node along Highway 17, in an area bordered by 52nd Street, is land designated as future tourism/hotel. It’s not clear what the band wants to eventually build there, but in an interview this summer Chief Kim Baird said it’s not looking at a casino.
In the late 1990s there had been talk of a casino and bingo complex, run by Lady Luck, on 15 acres of TFN land adjacent to Highway 17, but that never went ahead. A section along the highway on the other side of the TFN’s retail node has been designated for a future business park. Further down the highway, closer to the ferry terminal, is an area designated

MLA helps make case for dredging Vicki Huntington joins Ladner Sediment Group to push for removal of silt from river’s secondary channels BY
Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington and a local group continued the push last week to get funding to deal with the silt issue in the secondary channels of the Fraser River. Last Friday, Huntington and two members of the Ladner Sediment Group made a presentation to the province’s select standing committee on finance and government services. The Ladner Sediment Group (LSG) is made up of volunteers and residents who live on or near the Fraser River and who are committed to seeing the Ladner channels dredged to remove the layers of silt that have built up over the years. Huntington along with LSG president John Roscoe and member Jim McMillan presented their case to the committee in Abbotsford. “The president of the LSG gave an excellent presentation emphasizing the extent of the silting problem before the committee,” Huntington said this week.
Sediment build up over the last decade has made navigating the secondary channels of the Fraser River difficult. “It is quite obvious that the members of the committee, both government and opposition, are not familiar with the issue and have no idea of the damage that is being done to both private and industrial users of the river. The silting is forcing boats to run aground, floating homes to sit askew on the river bottom, public marinas to close docks and businesses to worry about their
future on the river.” The dredging of the Fraser used to be handled by the federal government, however, the secondary channels have not been cleared in over a decade and the build up is starting to cause problems. Sometimes, during low tides, there is only a few feet of water covering the bottom of the river and on many occasions over the
last few years boats trying to move in or out of Ladner Harbour, or any of the other local channels, have found themselves stuck in the silt for several hours until the water level rises. With the high silt levels, when the tide is low float homes risk going aground unevenly, which can cause damage to the structures and pose a safety risk to those inside.
“It was critical that I make the committee understand that the water lots are owned by the province, which surprised committee members,” Huntington said. “These water lots are a provincial asset and, as landlord, I strongly believe the province has a duty to protect their tenants.” The LSG has met with many government officials and politicians over the last
few years in an attempt to garner dredging money. Last fall, representatives from the group along with Delta Mayor Lois Jackson made a presentation to the House of Commons standing committee on finance. Port Metro Vancouver has committed money for the group to hire a consultant to carry out computer modeling of the Ladner channels. That will help it develop a plan for the secondary channels. Last fall the sediment group received $125,000 from Port Metro Vancouver to fund a study to look at the ongoing sediment build up in Deas Slough, Ladner Harbour, Ladner Reach, Sea Reach and Canoe Pass. The study is being undertaken by Hay & Company Consultants. A recently completed interim report confirmed that Ladner Reach is a net sediment deposition area and that activity in the region has accelerated the infill problem. Last month, Delta agreed to apply for funding through the B.C. Flood Protection Program.

The Southlands requires extensive improvements to make it viable for soilbased farming, according to Delta’s agricultural advisory committee. Delta council received a report this week from the committee, chaired by Mayor Lois Jackson, providing comments on the proposed Tsawwassen Area Plan. The draft plan, which is to go to a public hearing beginning Tuesday, contains recommendations in several areas, including agriculture. The most contentious issue has been the future of the Southlands, zoned agricultural but no longer in the Agricultural Land Reserve. The draft plan recommends maintaining the current agricultural designation for the 538-acre property, although the owner, the Century Group, could still apply for an amendment in the future. The agricultural advisory committee, according to the report, is supportive of the agricultural policies in the area plan, however, believes three key areas should be addressed: irrigation and water drainage, the rural/urban interface and transportation for farm vehicles.

More to area plan than just Southlands
The proposed Tsawwassen Area Plan deals with more than just the Southlands. Well over a year in the making, the plan contains a series of recommendations, some controversial while others have not drawn much attention. A public hearing to discuss the plan is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday at the South Delta Recreation Centre, starting at 7 p.m. both days. The plan sets a limit of four storeys for buildings in the town centre. There had been discussion about allowing an increase to at least six to make it viable for property owners to redevelop, however, the majority of respondents to a municipal mail-out survey indicated they were opposed to taller buildings. Higher buildings would be permitted “if sufficient community benefit is demonstrated as part of the proposed development.” The plan also has new
areas designated for townhomes, including the controversial power lines corridor. Several residents have written to the Optimist complaining townhomes shouldn’t be allowed in their established singlefamily neighbourhoods. Some of the other proposed changes include a new mixed use designation encompassing the 56th Street corridor, between Highway 17 and Winskill Park, to allow buildings to have ground-oriented commercial with residential above. As well, new apartment zones are proposed for areas immediately west and north of the town centre. To encourage densification, limited single-family in-fill areas would also be designated in areas adjacent to the town centre. The new plan calls for a policy that not only preserves agriculture, but allows new and innovative uses of previously unused areas for food production, including backyards, play-
ing fields and hydro rightsof-way. The plan also recommends Delta-owned land north of Tsawwassen, currently in the Agricultural Land Reserve but designated for public use, be redesignated as agriculture. During a presentation on the plan, community planning director Tom Leathem told Delta council the population of Tsawwassen, if the total build-out of the plan was achieved, would reach 30,774 in the next 10 years. That’s an increase of over 9,500 from the current population. However, Leathem noted a more conservative estimate would see a population increase of around 3,157 people during that time. The area plan hasn’t been updated since 1992. Coun. Bruce McDonald, who chaired the area plan committee, said Tsawwassen saw nowhere near the build-out called for in the current plan. Sandor Gyarmati

MURPHY’S LAW Everything in today’s world seems like it’s instant, which is a good thing — at least most of the time. Remember the old days when you got to a pedestrian-activated signal, pressed a button and then waited, for what seemed like forever, for the light to turn so you could cross the road? It could be a tedious process, particularly for a kid that measures life in days and weeks, not decades, but at least it was a safe way across. Today’s crosswalks, or at least the latest version of them, cut out that annoying wait time and let pedestrians stroll onto the roadway almost instantaneously. This is definitely beneficial for the impatient, but I can’t help but wonder whether such expediency will eventually catch up with us. Two crosswalks I encounter on a daily basis — adjacent to the old McKee House on Arthur Drive and between the two malls on Ladner Trunk Road — employ technology that as soon as the button is pushed, flashing lights go off, a signal for drivers to stop and pedestrians to cross. It all makes perfect sense, except that the instantaneous nature of this process allows precious little time for those behind the wheel to carry out their part of the bargain. I’m not trying to absolve drivers of blame when they blow through a crosswalk, a transgression that happens far too often, but I have noticed occasions where pedestrians hit the button and enter the roadway without ever breaking stride, leaving motorists no time to react. Yes, an aware driver should be able to spot them approaching the crosswalk and plan accordingly, but landscaping and pedestrian flow at the two locations I routinely encounter don’t always provide that necessary lead time. I’m not attempting to shift the onus to pedestrians either, but rather highlight the fact traffic engineers have created a situation that goes from black to white without any grey. Or perhaps more accurately, there’s no yellow between green and red. What troubles me about these new crosswalks is they don’t provide any transition time. The old-style signal saw the light turn yellow before going red and even the basic white paint on asphalt crosswalk forces pedestrians and drivers to make eye contact, but with these new ones someone can hit a button one moment and confidently stride onto the road the next. We don’t expect drivers to be able to stop instantly elsewhere on the road, yet for some reason we do here. It’s no secret that something bad can happen in an instant.
We must take radical action to address climate change NATHALIE HEIBERGHARRISON
COMMUNITY COMMENT The World Wildlife Federation just released its 2010 Living Planet report, which includes more than 100 exceptionally uplifting pages about how, at this rate of consumption, we would need about 1.5 planets to sustain our habits. By 2030 the federation estimates we’ll need two. I think it’s safe to say you could probably file this under “They needed a study to figure this crap out?” although it’s always nice to have impending doom drawn out in purple and green graphs alongside pictures of pandas. Canadians, as usual, were high up on the WWF’s carbon footprint list, coming seventh behind such environmentally friendly nations as the United Arab Emirates, Estonia and the United States. We couldn’t
get onto the UN Security Council, but we fit into this exclusive club quite easily. As Ian Robertson pointed out in his column here a couple weeks ago, Delta council recently set a goal of reducing greenhouse gases by 30 per cent by 2020. Then he pointed out that since our trajectory is currently going in the opposite direction, this won’t be too easy to achieve. I’m not going to be the one to draw a line between the potatoes rotting in Delta’s fields and our tendency to abuse the planet, because someone would surely write in saying that’s presumptuous, but things aren’t looking too good, are they? On one hand, it’s really, really great that Delta’s farmers are getting as much media and political attention as they are, but on the other hand, it’s because people are throwing around words like “disaster” and “out of business.” The B.C. Vegetable Marketing Commission estimates that over 2,900 acres of potatoes and 4,622 aces of vegetables have been lost so far, and MLA Vicki Huntington speculated it is the worst season for

farmers in 80 years. You can give the municipality kudos for buying hybrids, installing solar panels and running the Climate Smart program for local businesses — the steps Delta has taken definitely put some other municipalities to shame — but without a concrete yet outside-thebox plan, that 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gases won’t be reached. You can go ahead and blame the following suggestion on me being a young idealist who can’t afford a car and doesn’t have a mortgage, but Delta needs to do something radical. We can’t afford not to. Canadians care about the environment and aren’t naive about what is happening to it, but for a real reduction in emissions to happen we need gutsy leadership from our politicians. Recycling, lowering your thermostat, using energy efficient lights and hopping on the beloved 601 more often are good steps to take, but that’s kind of like trying to save money when you’re raking in a good salary — you might cut your spending here and there, but you’ll still be leading a good life.

Minister says gaming money is going to fund public priorities such as education, affordable housing and income assistance. The province has budgeted $120 million for gaming grants this year, $7.4 million more than last year. More than 6,000 non-profit and charitable groups will receive money, including the Burns Bog Conservation Society. It has received a total of $120,000 in gaming grants between September 2008 and August 2010. Some non-profit organizations, like the Burns
Bog Conservation Society, have a multi-year commitment for funding from the government, which are being honoured. Once these commitments expire, eligible organizations that meet the criteria can apply through the Community Gaming Grant program. This ensures all community groups have fair and equitable access to the entire pool of gaming grant funds. Rich Coleman Minister of Housing and Social Development
Garbage, not dogs, should be concern on beach Editor: Re: Trouble making sense of sign, letter to the editor, Oct. 16 I am surprised that after so many years of happy dog walking on the Fred
Gingell Park stairs going to Tsawwassen Beach, people are still concerned. There are dogs living on that beach, so the “no dogs” policy can’t apply. My concern is about
humans leaving trash, such as aluminum cans, paper, plastic, etc., along the side of the trail, which is a threat to our planet. That’s were the concern should be. Brigitte Reymond

Editor: Re: Gamble isn’t paying off, Oct. 20 To clarify points raised in the article about gaming grants, I would like to point out that 100 per cent of net gaming revenues to the province are spent on public priorities.

Over the past few days three significant events have been broadcast widely over various forms of media. Last week the incredible rescue of 33 miners and six rescue workers from a cavern over 600 metres below the surface in a mine in Chile; last weekend in Rome the Pope presided over the canonization of Brother André Bessette, friend to the poor and sick, and founder of Montreal’s St. Joseph’s Oratory, and now Saint André; finally this week the unspeakable depravity of a disgraced man who committed unspeakable crimes against women in Ontario. They showed the very best, and the very worst, of humanity. We can overcome the worst by focusing on the good being done by many. We have opportunity to participate

Stockings for Kids now in 15th year community to sponsor a stocking with a designated gender and age, fill it with appropriate new gifts and return the stocking to Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall for distribution by Deltassist Family and Community Services. An assortment of groups, businesses and individuals from the community respond to the need of kids less fortunate. Sponsoring a stocking is perhaps one of the truest gestures of giving as it is done anonymously, with each recipient having no way of thanking the donor. Stockings may be picked up on Adopt A
Stocking Day on Saturday, Nov. 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside the mall near Sublime Art Supplies. Participants will be asked to choose what age and gender they would like to fill a stocking for and then are requested to return the filled stocking by Friday, Nov. 26. Those wishing to participate, but unable to attend Adopt A Stocking Day are invited to call the mall’s promotions office (after Nov. 6) to make alternative pick up arrangements. Families wishing to register for Toy Depot assistance can call Deltassist at 604-946-9526. 10230872
It’s only mid-October, but the 15th annual Stockings For Kids program is already underway. Thanks to the cosponsorship of the Delta Optimist, the merchants of Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall, Century Group and the Tsawwassen community, 350 kids supported by Deltassist will benefit from this Christmas project once again. The program was launched in 1996 and with overwhelming community generosity, has steadily grown from 150 to the current 350 stockings. Stockings For Kids makes an appeal to the

Century-old tale of love gone tragically wrong EDGAR DUNNING
RAMBLING Cleaning out a filing cabinet recently I found a clipping from The Delta Times, the predecessor of The Optimist, dated August 1910. It read: “No trace has been found of Esther Johnson of Annacis Island who is supposed to have committed suicide by jumping into the Fraser River. The provincial police took the matter in hand but nothing was discovered although the river had been dragged in a number of places. It is thought that if the girl did commit suicide the strong current of the river would wash the body out to sea. “The cause of Miss Johnson’s disappearance sounds like a novel. She was 27 years of age and a very attractive Swedish girl. Ten years ago her lover, Peter Pearson, left Sweden to come to Canada and promised that when he had
made enough money he would send for her to come out and marry her. “He came to Annacis Island and took up a farm, becoming enamored with another girl he wrote to his former sweetheart and told her not to come to Canada. The girl had left Sweden and found on her arrival of the new affection. She accepted the situation in silence and arranged to meet her former lover on the dyke. After a few words she left Pearson and that was the last seen of her.” I wonder if there was a sequel to that event of a century ago? I have never seen another reference to it in any of our early newspapers. *** To lighten the mood, here’s an offering by our resident limerist, Ken Oakley: There was a young lady named Alice, Who wanted to live in a palace, But all she could afford, Was cheap room and board, With a couple of cousins in Dallas.
*** If the number of books waiting for review is an indication, Christmas must be just around the corner. Here’s a sample of what is offered: The Cube People by Christian McPherson, published by Nightwood Editions through Harbour Publishing, is an extraordinary tale about a common situation. Colin MacDonald finds himself in the suffocating atmosphere of the Ministry of Revenue Collection when all he wants to do is write science fiction horror novels. Between donning a pizza costume on behalf of the Refrigerator Committee, coping with mental health issues of his fellow workers and finding a human finger in a red high-heeled shoe, Colin finds time to take care of his family. While the writing is consistently hilarious, it is also candid about the absurdity of white-collar culture. Through his efforts to make a path for himself in writing he communicates his hope for redemption and the possibility of a happy ending.

Spooky fun for all BY
It’s back! Family Fright Fest is set to scare and entertain next week. The annual event, now in its third year, is set for Thursday, Oct. 28 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Last year, the Corporation of Delta teamed up with the Ladner Business Association to merge two local Halloween favourites, bringing the municipal event together with the LBA’s PumpkinFest. Family Fright Fest includes a host of spooky activities with something for every member of the family. South Delta Secondary Equinox Theatre students will transform the McKee Heritage House into Bates Motel. “The decor is inspired by Hitchcock, with every room guaranteed to send a chill down your spine,” said teacher Paige Hansen. Once through the “motel,” the Halloween festivities continue at the adjacent McKee Seniors’ Recreation Centre where seniors have created phantasmagorical trick or treat doors. Next door, the Wintemute Boys & Girls Club will have a Mad Scientist Lab with creepy games and activities. The event is appropriate for all ages, with good signage to allow “detours” of the scarier spectacles for the squeamish and very young. Ladner Pioneer Library staff will host a spooky story time from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. as well as crafts and a photo corner. Admission is free to all the activities. A meal package is available for $5 at the Kee Café. Family Fright Fest runs rain or shine. Ladner’s 47th Avenue will be closed to traffic between Arthur Drive and 51st Street from 4 to 8 p.m. to allow for street activities, which will include live music, face painting, popcorn, hay rides, crafts and more.
It’s not the only Halloween event in town. Here are some others: • Wellbrook Winery is getting a head start on Halloween this weekend with Spooktacular today from noon to 3:30 p.m., rain or shine. This is the second year for the event, which includes: a pumpkin carving/decorating contest, a costume contest, a pumpkin toss and pumpkin bowling. There will also be a craft area and snacks available. For more information visit, www.wellbrookwinery.com. • Robyn Balabanov is back with another edition of Halloween Horror Delta on Halloween night. The annual haunted house display will feature coffins, corpses, a witch’s house, animated windows, graveyards, fog machines, monsters and “a spinning wormhole vortex.” Balabanov will be giving out candy to trick-or-treaters wearing costumes while the display is open from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is free. Halloween Horror Delta is located at 5674 Grove Ave. in Ladner. For more information or directions visit www.horrordelta.com. • Pat McGregor already has her haunted house at 6007 Crescent Dr. in Ladner up and running. All the ghosts and ghouls were ready for visitors on Wednesday and the display will be up daily until Halloween. It runs until 10 p.m. everyday, unless it’s raining. McGregor said she’s added a few new elements to past haunted houses that have featured over 40 scary characters, including horror movie icons Freddy Kruger, Chucky and Jason Voorhees. • Royce Mattice of Tsawwassen will once again have his haunted display at the ready for Halloween. Mattice, who works in the film industry, has been putting the display on for the past four years and it’s been growing in popularity since the start, attracting more than 200 visitors last year.
This year he will also be collecting donations for the local food bank. Mattice’s display opens at 6:30 p.m. at 814 Underhill Dr. • Strange things happen when spooks and ghouls visit the Earthwise Garden. On Friday, Oct. 29 from 3 to 8 p.m., the Boundary Bay garden gets haunted as a hostess witch guides guests on a spooky, but family-friendly, tour. Visitors will then warm up with hot chocolate and a special treat from the cobb oven at the new Kitchen Garden. Scarecrows built by school classes will decorate the garden and visitors can vote for their favourite. If your class would like to make a scarecrow, contact Earthwise before Oct. 27. Also on display will be Earthwise Farm’s gigantic pumpkin, which might be the largest in Delta. If you think you have grown a larger pumpkin, the garden would like to be proven wrong. Drop by with your pumpkin, or bring a photo of you standing next to your pumpkin and its measurements.
The largest pumpkin will be recognized Oct. 29. Admission is $5 per person (children three and under are free) and includes hot beverage and a treat. The garden is at 6400-3rd Ave. For more information, call 604-946-9828 or e-mail info@earthwisesociety. bc.ca.
From a good scare to family friendly fun, there’s something for everyone at this year’s Family Fright Fest. Top: SDSS students willl once again turn McKee Heritage House into a haunted house. Below: For the younger crowd, or the faint of heart, there will be spooky storytime, crafts, games and other activities. The annual Halloween festival is joined by a host of other spooky events starting this weekend.

I don’t go to the gym very often (one of the benefits of having my own home gym) but when I do, I am always amazed at what I see. Some of these visions are amazing because they are great. For example, seeing a woman in her 70s walk on the treadmill alongside a 20-something is very cool. Some of these sights also make me smile and remind me the human spirit is a

powerful thing, like the man with his cane resting against the recumbent bike. He’s not letting anything like a bad knee get in the way of better health and fitness. But then some sights make me shake my head in wonder. Case in point, the treadmill runner who so carefully stretched his quadriceps, hamstrings and calves before embarking on his workout. While previous research from the 1970s suggested that stretching before a workout would help prepare the body for the work about to be done, more recent studies have dispelled this for what it is — old, outdated and just plain ol’ bad advice. This type of stretching, called static stretching, does not prepare the body for the upcoming workout. Instead, it actually increases your chances of injury and decreases your performance during that workout. A study published recently in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning evaluated runners who stretched before their run and runners who did a light jog for a warm up instead. Without stretching, the runners averaged six kilometers in a half hour, while the stretchers averaged 5.8 kilometers. The 3.4 per cent difference may seem small, but it could add up to a win or a loss in a competitive event. While the researcher’s acknowledge the participants used for this study were high-end athletes, they were quick to point out this finding would definitely have a trickle-down effect to us recreational exercisers too. Other research has also proven that stretching prior to sprinting and vertical jumping leads to a decrease in performance as well. The main reason static stretching is the wrong activity for a warm up is because it simply does not warm the body up. Stretches do not increase your core temperature, which is the whole reason behind warming up before your workout or activity. You need to promote blood flow to the areas about to be worked. What’s the answer to warming up, then? Dynamic stretching. Dynamic stretching combines the best of both worlds through various
movements done in a full range of motion. Another easy way to warm up is to simply do a light version of what you are about to do. Walk before you jog, jog before you run, spin the bike before pedaling hard, perform a light set of presses before you bench. Try this dynamic warmup before your next workout: • 12-15 squats and then add on a heel lift for another 12-15 repetitions. Feet shoulder width apart and squat down by pressing the bum rearward and making sure the knees track with the toes. Keep the knees behind the toes and come down until your thighs are parallel with the floor. To add the heel lift, once you have come out of the squat simply lift up off of your heels as high as you can, drop them back to the ground and perform another squat. • Alternating lunges — 10-15 each leg Start with feet hip width apart and step forward a really good stride. Lunge straight down, keeping the front knee in line with the ankle and the upper body tall. Arm circles, start small and work your way to big circles. 30 seconds in each direction. • 12-15 hip circles Circle one knee up, while balancing on the other leg, 12-15 times and then circle in the other direction. Really exaggerate your range of motion. • 12-15 leg swings Stand sideways holding on a wall. Put your weight in your left leg and swing you right leg back and forth and then across the body and out to the side. • 12-15 side bends Feet wider than you shoulders, hands behind your ears. Bring your right rib towards your right hip, pause and bring your torso back up to centre and to the other side. P.J.

Rushton’s era ends on high note for Dolphins
The 2010 Junior Pan Pacific Games in Kihei, Hawaii was a high-water mark for the Winskill Dolphins Swim Club. The Tsawwassen club sent two of B.C.’s three swimmers to this massive international competition. It was considered the crown jewel of Swim Canada’s 2009-2010 season, representing the country amidst a host of elite young swimmers from aquatic powerhouses such as the U.S.A, Brazil, and Japan. Both Noemie Thomas (14) and Evan Broderick (17) qualified for Junior Pan Pacs at the Nationals in August, earning spots on Team Canada for their 100 metre butterfly and 200 metre individual medley swims respectively. In their first international meet representing Canada, Thomas and Broderick showed class and determination on the world stage. Thomas rose to the challenge by setting new records and swimming onto the podium. She made two individual finals in 200m fly ‘A’ final and 100m Fly ‘B’ final. She set a new
national record in the 100 fly, making her the fifth fastest Canadian woman in that event. In the 100 fly, Thomas slashed over three seconds off the provincial record and has re-written the national record by 0.72 seconds in the last year. In addition, she set a new club record and lowered her existing provincial record in the 200 fly. She also helped Team Canada claim bronze in 4x100 medley relay, losing out to Australia and the U.S. Broderick (17) saw his share of final swims as well. He qualified for the ‘B’ final in 200 fly, 400 IM, and 200 breaststroke. Once again, he raised the bar in 200 breast, bettering his own club record from Nationals. Dolphins head coach Tom Rushton was also named to the Team Canada coaching staff. After qualifying at Nationals, Thomas, Broderick, and Rushton participated in a three-week staging camp — 14 days at UBC and seven days in Maui — with fellow Team Canada swimmers and coaches before departing for the meet at the end of
August. Rushton, who has been named to every coaching team available in Canadian Swimming’s development program, was jubilant about the performances of his swimmers. “The Nationals and Junior Pan Pacs marked many firsts for us at Winskill: first-time ‘A’ finalist(s) in an Olympic event; first-time Senior National medalist; firsttime Canadian Junior Team swimmer(s), male or female; first-time Canadian Junior Team coach selection; first-time international games finalist(s); first-time international medalist. “We achieved all our goals for the season, and we look forward to the next one!” This season, Rushton will be moving to UBC to lead their new Age-Group International program. He has spent four years at Winskill as head coach, one season as a volunteer coach, and 10 years as a swimmer. Under his guidance, Winskill swimmers have broken four Canadian records and over 700 club records.
After an impressive four year run as head coach of the Winskill Dolphins Swim Club in Tsawwassen, Tom Rushton is now working with the parent club at UBC, overseeing its Age Group International Program. Returning coach Ben Keast has taken over the head position.
First place Ice Hawks make coaching change
Junior “B” hockey club decides to go a different direction to lead veteran team for the balance of the season MARK BOOTH
The future is apparently now for the Delta Ice Hawks. In what has to be considered a stunning move, the Pacific International Junior Hockey League club dismissed first-year head coach Darryl Erickson and assistant Bob Atchison on Wednesday. All Erickson had done was get the Ice Hawks off to a seemingly impressive 9-3-2 start.
However, ownership and management looked beyond the team’s record when it decided to make the change after a 4-3 home ice loss to the Port Moody Black Panthers on Tuesday night. Erickson has been replaced by Dave McLellan who guided the Burnaby Express of the B.C. Hockey League last season. His longtime assistant Danny Cioffi has also been brought onboard, joining Jim Strang behind the bench.

“It was a very difficult decision and one we didn’t take lightly,” said Peter Zerbinos, the Ice Hawks director of hockey operations. “Darryl and Bob are very good teaching coaches but we didn’t expect to see so many players coming back from junior ‘A.’ We just didn’t think they were being challenged enough.” Erickson has been coaching hockey for over 20 years, including stints as an assistant at the junior and major midget levels.
This was his first time working as a head coach at junior “B” and the Hawks thought he would be a good fit given the number rookies they expected to dress this season. However, many of last year’s key players trickled back to the club, including leading scorer Kye Benjaminsen who returned home this week after beginning the season playing junior ‘A’ in Spruce Grove. Finalizing the Ice Hawks decision was the availability of
McLellan who was still pursuing junior ‘A’ opportunities when the Ice Hawks were searching for a coach over the summer. “Dave and Danny have been coaching junior ‘A’ for a number of years and we believe will take this team down the right path,” added Zerbinos. McLellan makes his debut tonight in Squamish against the Wolfpack. Delta also hosts the Richmond Sockeyes on Tuesday. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Tsawwassen golfer edged in tour playoff
Tsawwassen’s Austin Hughes turned in a strong showing on the final stop on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s B.C. One Day Fall Series. Played out in perfect golfing weather at University Golf Club in Vancouver last Saturday, Hughes was part of a three-way playoff to determine the overall champion. The 15-year-old, along with Langley’s Callum Robinson and Coquitlam’s Oscar Baek all shot great scores of one-under-par 71. Hughes would end up third after parring the playoff hole, while Robinson recorded a birdie and Baek an eagle to to win low overall
U13 Gold soccer
and the Boys 14-16 title. “I hit my drive on the playoff hole into the rough and I had a difficult left to right shot from 198 yards. I hit my second shot two feet from the pin and eagled for the win,” outlined Baek, who named his great ball striking and getting up and down in many difficult places as key to his victory. “I feel great about winning the last tournament here at University Golf Club.” A number of the juniors in the province are now looking forward to the MJT’s invitation-only Boston Pizza National Championship presented by Callaway at Wigwam Golf Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Nov. 20-21.
More hardware for Masters Ladner Masters Fastball Club capped a memorable 2010 season by being named Masters Team of the Year at Softball B.C.’s awards banquet last Saturday. The Masters captured both the provincial Over 40 and Over 50 championships. They also added the Over 40 Western Canadian title. Ladner wrapped up its competitive schedule at last month’s NAFA Western Masters Championships in Carson City, Nevada. The Over 45 team placed second and the Over 50 squad was third. Standout pitcher Rick Unrau was also named Softball B.C.’s Masters Player of the Year. The club thanks Royal Canadian Legion #61 for its continued support.

HAUGEN, LILLIAN (nee Wilson) June 7, 1917 - October 19, 2010. It is with deepest sorrow we announce the passing of our devoted and loving mother, grandmother and friend. Lil’s love remains with her son Doug Sr. (Angelita); grandchildren Charlene (Hans), Kim (Nick) and Doug Jr. (Mercedes); great-grandchildren Chris, Aliza, Derek, Michelle and Elise. Lilly adored her grandchildren and treasured every moment with them. She will be fondly remembered, deeply missed, forever admired and her legacy will remain in the hearts of all who knew her. Lil believed in the resurrection of life and that we will all be together again. The family is forever grateful to the staff of Delta View for the love and care she received as a resident of the Eagle Unit. An interment will be held at Boundary Bay Cemetery in Tsawwassen, 12:45 on Friday ,October 29, followed by a service at the Chapel in Delta View Life Enrichment. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Delta Community Animal Shelter or a charity of your choice.

FORRESTER, Clifton Roger
With deep sadness we announce the passing of Clifton Roger Forrester on Sunday, October 17, 2010. Clifton passed away peacefully at Mountain View E.C.U. Family members Michael, Alex, Connor and Evan were with him when he passed. Clifton was predeceased by his loving wife, Phyliss Forrester, daughters Peggy Forrester and Tricia Hunter and brother James Forrester. He is survived by sister Muriel Forrester, grandchildren Michael Mathias (Cory Gill), Laura Foster (Barry Fero), and Samuel Hunter, also son-in-law John Hunter (Sun Fei Anna), great-grandchildren Evan, Alex, Connor and great-great-grandson Logan. Clifton worked at the Biological Station in Nanaimo, BC for 30 years. He then went on to work at the International North Paciﬁc Fisheries Commission until he retired. He loved Japan and probably would have moved there if not for his family in Canada. He loved ﬁshing and socializing with friends and we will miss him greatly. There will be a Celebration of Clifton’s Life held on Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 2:00 pm at his home in Ladner, 4996 Mariner Place, Delta, BC.

HERBERT, Frederick George
Born – 5 Oct., 1923 ~ Died – 15 Oct., 2010 It is with great regret that we inform you of the death of Frederick Herbert who passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Friday, the 15th of October, 2010 at the Delta Place Senior Nursing Home in Ladner, BC. Fred was born in Gateshead, England on October 5, 1923 and immigrated to Canada much later, where he met his wife Irene who passed away some years ago. Fred was a Veteran of the Second World War, being a Navigator in a Mosquito squadron for some years, and has several medals and decorations commemorating the fact. Fred also served for many years with the RCMP, reaching the rank of Sergeant. During this time, one of his duties was that of personal driver to Pierre Elliott Trudeau, then Prime Minister of Canada. Fred was also a Legion member for some 55 years. With no immediate family members remaining, his closest people to him were Mhel, the staff at the Nursing Home and Trevor, who was his Power of Attorney and Executor. Also sadly missing Fred will be some very close friends in England; Hanna, Ann, Fay and Phoebe. Fred, who still loved his daily can of beer and the occasional rum, was unfortunately wheelchair bound after falling and breaking his right hip twice. He was in good spirits and had a great birthday celebration on the 5th of October, with cake and all the staff of the Nursing Home and friends at his table, and of course his favourite glass of birthday rum. Memorial Service to be held at Delta Funeral Home, 5329 Ladner Trunk Road, Ladner, BC on Thursday, 28 October, 2010 at 11:am. Following the service there will be a ‘get-together’ at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 61 in Ladner. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations to the Ladner United Church, 4960 48 Avenue, Delta, BC, V4K 4X6 would be appreciated. Delta Funeral Home 604-946-6040

Cancer June 21-July 22: The month ahead features romance, pleasure, speculation, creativity, beauty and charming kids. You’ll ride a winning streak! These enjoyable matters were sprinkled through September and October, but now they ﬂower more fully. A contentious, intense tone yields to a softer, affectionate “dalliance” atmosphere. An old ﬂame might appear, if he/she has not already done so in the last two weeks. Sunday’s for fun, social delights. Retreat to rest, plan Monday/Tuesday. Your energy, magnetism and effectiveness soar Wednesday p.m. to Friday – go out, NOT within! Money caution Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead revolve around home, kids, property, security, soul, nutrition and Mother Nature. The friction that sandpapered these areas in recent weeks will fade – for two years. Now to January, affection ﬁlls your home. You’ll be charmed and charming! It’s a splendid time to decorate, vacation, take the kids to the pumpkin patch, etc. If you’re single, a romantic streak begins to wind through your days. If married, the boudoir brightens. If parenting, be gentle – you might push sports, adventure, too hard. Be ambitious Sunday. Happiness, hopes, plans and popularity Monday/ Tuesday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Communications, paperwork, details, errands, short trips, siblings and casual acquaintances ﬁll the weeks ahead. Much of this continues September/October’s trends, but in bigger, luckier ways. The focus of communications changes from sex, ﬁnances, mutual property, big changes, power plays, secrets, to something lighter, more gracious: affection/sensuality, earnings instead of assets, compromise instead of power plays, etc. Less is at stake, and that buoys your heart!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mystery, of psychological, ﬁnancial and sexual depths awaits you. You might be “tied to” another’s ﬁnances, might invest, or take on a mortgage or other large debt. The end result will be a change in your lifestyle. This change might occur through other avenues also: health adjustments, sexual involvements (or pregnancy) etc. It’s a time of commitment and consequence. It’s also, to some degree, a time of karma – I hope you’ve been good! Research, intuition and subconscious promptings aid you. Chase money, shop early Sunday. Thursday to Saturday are sexy, romantic! Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead feature relationships – of all stripes, from marriage and business partnerships, to agreements, contracts, negotiations, dealings with the public, and the bevy of new relationships that relocation would entail. You are no longer (as in recent weeks) meeting friction and challenge from others. Now forward (to January) most dealings and links become unusually affectionate and gracious. Everyone wants to please – you included! It’s likely that a former bond, an “ex” or a former opportunity (relocation, business, public dealings, etc.) will loom large. Talk it up, Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The next few weeks bring drudgery, chores, health concerns, machinery repairs/purchases and increased dependents’ needs. All these detracted from the pleasures of the last few weeks. So now the cosmos balances: during this “drudgery month” your chores will tend to be light and enjoyable, co-workers will be affectionate (or at least nice), dependents reward you and your health will improve...unless you have a sugar-related problem – e.g., diabetes. (If so, be vigilant through January.) Relationships grow ﬁery yet hopeful. Love could arise from an argument (and vice versa).

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Chase money during the weeks ahead. Buy/sell, cultivate new clients, seek a pay raise, etc. Also focus on, and complete, major tasks or health ﬁxes. Putting them off would interfere with the lucky opportunities and relationship potentials of 2011. To late January, your work scene features intensity, longer hours and creativity – it’s one of the more interesting things in your life, until 2011.“Heavy” money issues enter Sunday (mortgage, investment, etc.) – be calm, even passive. Wisdom, gentle love early week. Ambitious wishes furthered Thursday/Friday, not before. A happy weekend! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Weariness ends – your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise – especially in money areas. For the next six weeks, increased money will come from work or health events, perhaps from overtime hours, sales. Though more money comes, strictly beware a simultaneous, unconscious need to overspend. You could purchase machinery or repairs – haggle, go slow, don’t “spend automatically.” A relationship puzzles you Sunday (perhaps because it’s going to end soon). Mysteries, hidden “treasure,” sexual lures ﬁll Monday/Tuesday. Sweet, gentle love Wednesday-Friday. Be ambitious Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Rest through late November. Contemplate, plan, be charitable and spiritual, connect with institutions, government agencies. All these proceed splendidly, but other, more hectic pursuits meet headwinds, mainly because your energy and charisma are low. People don’t want to follow your lead right now. This could be a problem, because you’re feeling more determined, assertive and impatient than usual. Dicey combination! Turn that drive into creative pursuits. Indulge yourself with a little pleasure to defuse your ferocity. Valuable secrets surface Wednesday-Friday – pounce Thursday p.m.!

Oct. 24 - Oct. 30 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of happiness stretches before you! Your popularity will rise. Social delights, optimism, bright future plans and group activities await. A light ﬂirtation could occur – it could be more than that if you meet in a group. Sunday accents romance.Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday morning. Relationships loom large Wednesday noon to Friday eve. There’s a disappointment or obstacle here Thursday morning, but otherwise these few days offer success in negotiations, agreements, love, partnerships, meeting or serving the public. Be open, other-oriented and eager! Mysteries, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead luckily feature ambition, career, prestige relationships and your reputation. Climb the ladder, boost your position in the world! Bosses, parents and higher-ups will (by Thursday onward) drop the impatience and temperament of the last two months.They will strongly favour you now into next January: you’ll be surprised at how graciously you and your proposals are received. Travel and socializing issue a siren song for six weeks – enjoy, but don’t be overly distracted. Romance, creative urges and pleasure call you Monday/Tuesday. Tackle work after Thursday morning, not before. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Understanding replaces mystery, light replaces dark, a philosophical attitude supplants lust.You grow more calm and compassionate. You see your future more clearly, making this and the next few weeks a splendid time to make life-affecting decisions. You might wed, or meet an important love, in the few months ahead. Travel, read, communicate Sunday. Be near home or in contact with family – or pursue security, property goals – Monday/Tuesday. Romance, a creative surge or speculative urge comes Wednesday to Friday – it’s a trap to Thursday morning, succeeds after. Chores Saturday! email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
