Keep land agricultural: survey Ipsos Reid results show more than 60% of residential respondents don’t want to see Southlands developed BY
The results of the Tsawwassen Area Plan survey are in and, in most cases, it’s clear what the community wants. A majority of residential respondents — more than 60 per cent — stated the Southlands should remain zoned for agricultural use, while 38 per cent support some limited development. Delta council received a report with the results at its meeting Monday night. “These results are very fresh,” said Kyle Braid, a representative from Ipsos Reid, the company hired to carry out the survey. Braid told council the last survey had been entered just hours before the 7 p.m. meeting. In early May, 16,360 copies — two to each household and one to each business — were mailed out. In total, 5,778 surveys were returned — 5,483 residential, 106 business and 189 were rejected for various reasons. “I would call that an excellent, excellent response rate,” Braid said. In calculating the results, Ipsos Reid separated the residential and business surveys, so while the majority of residential respondents stated they wanted to keep
An Ipsos Reid survey done for Delta found the majority of Tsawwassen residents would like to the the agricultural designation for the Southlands retained. the Southlands for agricultural use, the response from businesses on that question was reversed — 60.4 per cent said they would support some development while 36.8 per cent voted for no change.
The remaining four questions on the survey dealt with other issues the Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee is pondering, such as building heights, infill housing and higher density development.
Just over 60 per cent of residential respondents said the current four-storey building height limit should remain in place; over half were against the municipality relaxing the rules around sub-
dividing single-family lots; and more than 60 per cent of residential respondents were in favour of Delta allowing more townhouses, See SURVEY page 3
Delta matchmaker pleads guilty to mail fraud in U.S. JESSICA KERR
The Delta man arrested earlier this year in connection with suspected U.S. mail fraud pleaded guilty to the charges in a Seattle courtroom last week. Barrie Turner, 65, was charged with mail fraud in connection
with the operation of a series of fake “executive dating” websites. He was arrested in March trying to cross the border into Point Roberts after a U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigation into Executive Dating LLC, which ran Executive Catholic Dating and Executive Gay Dating among other matchmaking websites.
On Friday, he entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in Seattle. Authorities allege Turner accepted payments from customers — as much as $997 US for a six-month membership — through the mail while he did not provide legitimate matchmaking services. It is alleged he sent fake matches
to customers. The payments were sent to UPS stores in different states and then forwarded to a mailbox in Point Roberts. More than 100 people have filed consumer complaints about the websites and the postal inspection service said there are more than 1,000 known victims in

the case. It’s estimated that in the last five years, customers have mailed or wired payments totaling more than $1.2 million. Turner is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 24 in U.S. District Court in Seattle. He could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words I grew up in North Vancouver and have been playing football since my early teens. My size kind of dictated what position I play (offensive line) but I’ve learned to really love my role on the club and on the offence. As the centre I do get to touch the ball on every play, so it all starts with me. Growing up, I was very close to my father and he was a big inﬂuence on me during times I needed him most. Picking my college, dealing with adversity, being the best person and player I can be were a product of his guidance and it’s one of the reasons I love taking part in our club’s community programs. Among the programs I take part in, I would say Read, Write and Roar is among my favourites because I’ve seen ﬁrsthand what happens to a young person’s life when they grasp the ability to read. The beneﬁts of literacy last a lifetime and I take pride in knowing that I might be planting the seed for a future reader. Dean Valli in action on the ﬁeld. Photo courtesy BC Lions.

Ottho appointed to parole board After a successful 35-year practice in Ladner, lawyer begins new chapter with full-time appointment
office. Ottho worked on the inquiry along with fellow lawyers Percy Smith and Ron Pitters. He said at the time there were complaints of the use of excessive force by some officers and “other irregularities” at the department. There was a deterioration of the relationship between the youth of South Delta and the police department, he said. “When it was all over...
the chief had resigned and the deputy chief had resigned,” he said. Over his years of legal practice, Ottho has seen everything from medical malpractice suits to attempted murder cases. And throughout the years, Ottho has also been heavily involved in the community. He was a director with the Delta Chamber of Commerce for a number of years, sat as vice presi-
dent for a time and acted as general counsel for the organization; he was general counsel for the Delta Arts Society; he’s worked with the Delta Foundation and the Delta Hospital Foundation; he was appointed by Delta council to work with the municipality in an advisory capacity; and he is a past president of the Ladner Business Association. One of his pet causes,
however, has been the conservation of Burns Bog. In 1984, Ottho and Smith started the Don’t Dump on Delta committee to oppose the Greater Vancouver Regional District’s (which is now known as Metro Vancouver) plan to expand the Vancouver Landfill. The community rallied, as it often does in South Delta, and the committee started a petition that had thousands of signatures in just a few weeks. The plan was halted and Ottho’s work attracted the attention of the Ministry of the Environment. “I’m proud of my role in sparing 560 acres of bog land in that way,” he said. Ottho said he decided to make the change and apply for the parole board appointment because he wants to be a part of some upcoming changes to the system Ottawa is looking at. Ottho said he was feeling a little nostalgic and wistful as he wrapped things up at the Delta Law Office for the last time last Friday. He had taken a step back from his legal work over the last two years as he took on the part-time position with the parole board. In 2008, he sold the practice to Murray Lott but stayed on as an associate counsel. With the full-time, threeyear appointment, however, Ottho is precluded from other work.
new plan: retain the current policy and land use designation, as agricultural, for the Southlands; retain the current policy regarding a four-storey height limit for buildings in the town centre area; retain the existing policy for single-family subdivision; develop policies and land use designations for
permitting the development of higher density housing close to the town centre; and develop policies regarding building heights for new houses in Tsawwassen. The committee is currently working on a draft
plan to bring back to council for public consultation and approval. Council is asking it to report back with its recommendations by Aug. 30, but Coun. Bruce McDonald, who chairs the committee, said the report
should be ready before then. Council decided to do the mail survey after problems arose with an online survey. The survey cost $18,500 as well as an additional $6,592 in mailing costs.
Longtime Ladner lawyer Ulf Ottho closed the door on his legal practice last Friday only to open a new chapter in his life. Last week, federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced 13 appointments to the National Parole Board and Ottho was among those named to the Pacific Region. He wrapped things up at the Delta Law Office, where he’s been practicing for more than 30 years, and on Monday Ottho reported for his first day on the job as a full-time member of the National Parole Board at its Pacific Region office in Abbotsford. He was first appointed to the board as a part-time member in 2007. Ottho began his career in the same building on Delta Street in 1974 as an articling student under Herb Ivens. The practice — Ivens and Ivens — was run by Herb and his brother Boyd. Over his 35-year career in law, Ottho has seen it all. He has worked in various aspects of the field, including criminal, family, civil, wills and estates, and corporate. From 1984 to 1996, he acted as standing agent for the federal Crown and prosecuted many cases, from fisheries and income tax to

Ottho said some of the biggest cases he worked on involved prosecuting drug dealers. “I think the biggest one I had was nine tons,” he said, adding it was a large shipment of marijuana that had landed in Ladner. Over the years, Ottho has been involved in some highprofile cases. In 1978, the attorney general’s inquiry into the Delta police department was initiated in his

local MP’s office,” he told council. “It includes conducting political research, arranging meetings at various levels with politicians and bureaucrats, providing guidance and on-ground support.” McGill said the meetings have already produced some results on many of the issues Delta and Metro Vancouver took to Ottawa. In the case of Burns Bog, Environment Canada representatives have contacted Delta to review the ecological conservancy area and conservation covenant amendment process in regards to a Ramsar designation, which would provide long-term protection to the bog. McGill said meetings with representatives from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Transport Canada, and the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities helped raise the profile of the need for dredging in local channels. Jackson called the trip “a very worthwhile venture for us that I know will pay dividends over the next year.”

Delta’s mayor has already said the thousands paid to have meetings arranged in Ottawa was money well spent, and last week civic staff outlined what the municipality got for its money. Back in March, Delta council approved spending up to $22,000 on a consultant to set up one-onone meetings with federal officials. It hired Tactix Government Relations and Public Affairs Inc. (Tactix) to secure meetings with key government staff in several departments. The municipality partnered with Metro Vancouver and the two governments split the $27,000 cost — Delta paid $16,000 while Metro Vancouver made up the remaining $11,000. Mayor Lois Jackson and councillors Bruce McDonald and Scott Hamilton were joined in Ottawa by CAO George Harvie, police chief Jim Cessford, fire chief Dan Copeland and Sean McGill,
Delta’s director of human resources and corporate planning. The group had 21 meetings over four days, June 1 to 4, that covered a variety of issues — policing, dredging, Burns Bog, solid waste, fire and housing. “We undertook a very long, arduous week in Ottawa,” said Jackson. “It was a very, very... grueling week and, I believe, a fruitful one.” Two years ago, Delta and Alpha Aviation hired the same Ottawa-based firm to arrange meetings with federal officials, an expenditure that cost $12,000. McGill told council that making key contacts during the first round of meetings in 2008 helped the municipality garner funding for several projects. “Those meetings were extremely important to us,” he said. McGill also said the work done by Tactix is more than a municipality could expect from a local MP. “The scope of this arrangement is outside what can be expected from a

Legion secures funding to PUB NIGHT FUNDRAISER restore Ladner cenotaph The Ladner branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will receive up to $25,000 from the federal government for the restoration of the cenotaph in Memorial Park. Planned restoration work includes installing 25 feet of concrete around the cenotaph to create a platform that will improve accessibility to the cenotaph. The cenotaph commemorates the fallen in the First World War, Second World War and the Korean War. Minister of Veterans Affairs Jean-Pierre Blackburn and DeltaRichmond East MP John Cummins made the funding announcement Monday. “Cenotaphs provide a symbolic place where everyone can gather to remember those men and women — our friends and family members — who served our country,” said Blackburn. “This is why our govern-

Ignoring them won’t do the trick TED MURPHY
MURPHY’S LAW I’m not so sure Delta should be counting on birds of prey, or car tires, to address the rabbit situation at the Ladner Leisure Centre. There are, by municipal estimates, 200 rabbits in and around the civic precinct. These feral bunnies provide a cute and cuddly sideshow for those visiting the leisure centre and I suspect they even attract people to the area. At this point, civic officials are choosing to ignore the issue, hoping instead that Mother Nature will take care of it for them. You only have to look across the water at the University of Victoria to see what could happen here if the situation isn’t addressed soon. It’s believed abandoned house pets — sound familiar? — were left on campus to multiply over the years to the point university officials pegged the population at a whopping 1,600 last month. They, too, are looked upon as a bit of a campus attraction, but at those numbers they’re now creating health and safety concerns. The plentiful droppings are causing health issues, they’re destroying certain types of vegetation and the holes they dig pose a danger, particularly on playing fields, where at least one ankle has been broken. The issue has spun far enough out of control that UVic has had to employ a limited cull around playing fields, a move that has proven to be unpopular. Delta’s situation is far from that point, and any concerns tend to centre on the well being of the animals rather than the adverse effects, but given they are, well, rabbits, it won’t take long for the population to approach the total in Victoria, where university officials say they clean three to five rabbits off the roads every day. It stands to reason the longer Ladner’s bunnies are left to multiply, the greater the issues that will develop. I’m not sure whether those concerns will be for the bunnies themselves or with the problems they create, but I am certain it will be far more difficult dealing with 500 or 1,000 rabbits than it will be with the current 200. If Ladner’s bunnies aren’t causing any headaches for the municipality or those who frequent the leisure centre, and they’re not in any danger, which appears to be the case at the moment, then it’s easy to look the other way. How long this willful blindness can continue will, in large part, depend on how big this colony becomes. Given they’re rabbits, which have earned the reputation they have, Delta won’t be able to ignore this one for too much longer.
Towns taking step back in time to revitalize Main St. DEBBIE McBRIDE
COMMUNITY COMMENT Howdy folks from the wild west states of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. My husband, our friend Louis and I are riding the backroads on our iron horses and enjoying the company of our small town neighbours. I find myself coming here as a way of recharging my batteries and reminding myself why it’s important to protect our green spaces. Canada’s west wasn’t settled in the same way as the United States, so we have a golden opportunity to learn from their mistakes as well as what they’ve done right. We’re familiar with the shoot ‘em up stories from the gold rush and cowboy days, but how well do we know the stories of how town squares and a proper main street were put into use? In fact, most western towns were based on a pretty good model of
town planning. Government and social buildings were situated in the centre of town along with a central park and shopping area. Homes were within walking distance of these services. Liveries, blacksmithies and other industrial crafts were outside these areas for sanitary reasons but still walkable. The advent of the car, of course, changed everything and suddenly that model was thrown out the window in many cases — but not all. Strip malls and cookie cutter housing developments became the norm. Restoration and retention of old homes and buildings was considered old fashioned and outdated thinking. We became a throw away society and that included where we built and how. In many of the towns we went through it’s amazing to see the difference in how they fared depending on the development model they followed. Towns such as Boise, Idaho, have managed to prevent the ugliness and costliness of urban sprawl. With the recession taking a heavier toll in the U.S., it has taken a bigger bite out of business and one of the most interesting phenomenons taking place there is the rushing back to smallness. There

is a need to feel connected to your neighbour and those who you do business with. Strip malls are closing and main street is coming back to life. A great example is the little town of Buffalo, Wyoming, which was the setting for a famous shoot out in the book The Virginian. It had the classic main street with the general store, pharmacy, hotel, etc. A place with covered sidewalks, you could look in the storefront windows and then go inside if something caught your eye, or you could sit outside on a bench and just watch the world go by. During the 1960s it caught the strip-mine disease and suddenly businesses were everywhere but Main Street, which meant customers were more inclined to go to a mall than shop locally if they had to get in their car anyway. But businesses in Buffalo and other old west towns have had an epiphany and have started revitalizing Main Street. And now the old neighbourhoods around them are coming back to life. Young families are moving back to small towns from big cities to raise their families in safe, old fashioned places. Because, in truth, everything old is new again.

Era comes to end in East Delta tors as the quickest means of getting there. The first fire hall in East Delta came to be in 1958 in a converted chicken barn behind Doig’s store and Esso station at 96th Street and Highway 10 (where Tim Hortons is today). By the mid-1960s, Hall 4, as it stands today, was built on Highway 10. Many a young man in East Delta (including myself) joined up and was proud to serve his community as a volunteer fireman. Practice night right to the end was always Wednesday nights. I take my hat off to the many East Delta family names that served in a volunteer capacity since 1958 ... names such as
Embree, Huff, Cory, Davie, Weaver, Peterson, Lawrie, Kerr, Hendriksen, Kevlen, Thibaudier, Robertson, Terpsma, DeBoer and even a couple of Patons. Biggest thank you of all goes to Gordon Huff, who now at age 88, was the volunteer chief since the “chicken barn days” and taught many a young buck how to tie proper knots, how to drive a fire truck and work the pumps, and most of all, how to use common sense to deal with fires and horrific MVAs on the freeway and Highway 10. Also, many thanks to current volunteer chief Ken Davie, as well as Harold Thibaudier and Don Wiedenhammer, who hung
PUBLIC INFORMATION SESSIONS

Editor: A long-standing history of volunteer firemen in Delta came to an end earlier this month as Hall 4 in East Delta finally closed its doors. Growing up in East Delta in the 1960s, I recall nearly all firefighters in Delta were volunteers, with fire halls in Beach Grove, downtown Ladner, East Delta and North Delta. Almost all volunteer firemen at Hall 4 in East Delta were farmers, and many sacrifices were made to attend calls, as often times the fire siren would go off in the middle of milking, or during planting, harvesting or haying. They would drop everything and race to the fire hall, often on their trac-

Free Pool Water Analysis An immigrant’s reflections Editor: Yet another Canada Day is upon us and, after 143 years as a geopolitical entity in North America, the question of Canada’s identity and substance as a mature nation remains more than ever on the front burner of the Canadian experience. On a personal note, it was a few days before Canada’s 90th birthday in 1957, exactly 53 years ago, that this immigrant arrived through the gates of Shed 5 of the Port of Montreal to embark on his own Canadian experience and join all those who had come before him and with him, ready to embrace Canada as a new home and a new beginning. Intent on grasping the opportunities Canada offered to all those who were prepared to rely on themselves and their own efforts, those earlier newcomers regarded their

country that was built on the self-reliance and selfsacrifice of all those who had come before them. But now, some 50 years later, it is with a sense of sadness and resignation this immigrant of old watches wave after wave of new immigrants who appear to want and expect to be accorded all the rights and privileges earned by earlier arrivals, without the attendant responsibilities and commitments. In a country where a Canadian passport has been reduced to an instrument of personal convenience and requires the mere formality of only three years of residence to obtain and where dual citizenship provides a guarantee of keeping the home fires burning and remaining faithful to the mother country, patriotism has become a rare commodity on the part of presentday newcomers.

“landed immigrant” status as a privilege, not a right, on the way to earning their place in Canadian society and become full-fledged and productive Canadian citizens. Having bidden good-bye to their native countries to give themselves and their children a new life, and making learning Canada’s languages of either English or French a foremost priority as “New Canadians,” they brought with them a ready sense of loyalty and commitment to their adopted country, together with their skills, craftsmanship and personal desire to succeed. Nothing was handed to them. There were no free lunches, no welfare programs, no social safety nets, no ESL support, no excuses for failure ... only the opportunity to prove to themselves and to their new home they were personally capable of succeeding in a

all, we have an absurd heritage department responsible for promoting our elusive identity. I think it is dangerous when the government is the sole catalyst for national unity rather than the spontaneous actions of the people.

Linda Mallard, owner TWC
The TWC Studio is full of chatter as clients’ are gathering for their Pilates class. With only 4 people in a class, I have time to check in with each client. One client, waiting for a hip replacement, let’s me know that she’s particularly sore today in her hip and back. Another is tight in her back with some tension radiating down her thigh. The third client has been sitting at a computer all morning. His neck feels tight and it hurts to turn his head. And the fourth client says he’s feeling pretty good and wants to work hard today.

10 minutes into the class I walk quietly up to each client and ask how their pain level is: “I feel great. My hip feels really good. Back pain is gone.” “The tension in my back is gone. I totally forgot that my back hurt when I came in.” “No headache here. Awesome.”
Time to begin our class. Lying down on a Reformer machine we begin with some deep breaths. Client’s become aware of how their body feels. In preparation for movement, they find their comfortable posture, are reminded to release tension in their body that doesn’t serve them and then to gently activate their deeper core muscles.

I respond with “You are welcome. It has been my pleasure.” And I move onto the next round of classes or private sessions, knowing that within one hour of a client coming in our door, he or she will feel 100% better when they leave. Now that’s a rewarding day!
There are days when both myself and my team of instructors feel like healers. And in some respects, I guess we are. Twenty-five years in this business, we’ve taken many courses to learn how to assess movement, posture and prescribe exercises to help heal. Over the years we’ve developed an “intuition” of reading our client’s bodies and can select exercises that will help reduce pain, increase energy and improve function.

to encourage students to take ownership of their garden space and responsibility for the food they are growing,” says Peg Keenleyside, the project facilitator who brought the idea to the parent advisory council last year. Each student in the program begins with their own pot of either peas, beans, carrots, lettuce or tomatoes and gets to take their pot home with them after school is out in June to continue growing their vegetables through the summer. “The more personal the gardening experience is for a child, the more likely they are to maintain an interest in the outcome and retain the science lessons they have learned,” says Keenleyside, a South Park parent with two primaryage children.

Working with teachers to foster Ministry of Education learning objectives in the areas of life science and social studies, the project also takes students through concepts such as ecosystem definitions, plant biology, insect lifecycles and sustainable agricultural practices.

efforts.” The United Entertainers began in 1999, under the direction of Ross Laidley, as a way to raise money for local charities. During the past eight years, over $22,000 has been donated to many worthy causes. The United Entertainers are comprised of performers, some of whom have never been on stage, while others are professional, semi-professional or semiretired entertainers who just love to perform.
Over 100 students at Tsawwassen’s Ecole South Park Elementary spent the spring planting, tending and harvesting seed-raised organic vegetables in pots through the school’s Portable Garden Project. The project is a the result of a partnership between the parent advisory council, teachers and the school administration all working together to realize an outdoor classroom experience for students from kindergarten through Grade 4. “This project demonstrates the tremendous capacity we have in our schools to build parentschool partnerships that enhance student learning,” says Bob Thompson, South Park’s vice-principal and leader of the garden project committee.

I still don’t get it — the pajamas-in-public thing. It’s been going on for years, of course. I think it was, oh, seven or eight years ago when I first noticed that the pajamasin-public was a happening thing. I’d looked out the window and seen people walking down the street — mostly female, mostly teenaged — wearing what you’d normally wear to bed. “Hey!” I remember calling to my husband. “There are three girls walking down the street in pajamas!” My husband took a look. My husband raised his eyebrows. We told ourselves that it was probably Grade Nine Pajama Day. That was the answer, we said. The next day, however,

never see them wearing nightgowns. Or bathrobes. Or slippers. Why aren’t they wearing slippers?” My husband shrugged. He’d long since given up running to the window every time I hollered a pajama alert. “Slippers wouldn’t be good outside,” he pointed out. “They’re not built for sidewalks.” “True enough,” I said. “But why be selective about the sleep attire?” The husband shrugged. Again. Two more girls ambled down the street wearing you-know-what. “You know,” he said, “you should go out and ask them.” “I couldn’t do that!” I said. “It would make me look so old!” The husband looked at me. I knew what he was thinking. Sure, I’ll ask them one day soon, but I’ll have to look the part. Let’s just say I’ll head outside, but I won’t be wearing jeans.
we noticed them again. But this time, eight girls. All in flannel PJs. “Maybe it’s Grade Nine Pajama Week,” I said. “Or Pajama Month.” Turns out it wasn’t Grade Nine Pajama Week, or even Grade Nine Pajama Month. I began to see people — mostly female, mostly teenaged — wearing pajamas on the bus. At the bank. In the book store. In the supermarket. “Maybe they’re just too strapped for time in the morning to change,” I told my husband. “Or maybe they’re just too busy to wash their jeans. Poor kids today. They just face so many demands.” “Weird,” said my husband. “In my day, we wore jeans even when they were dirty.” Fast-forward seven or eight years, and still, they’re out there.

Gallagher adds Montreal to his busy travel plans Canadiens select Tsawwassen forward in 5th round after breakout campaign with the Vancouver Giants BY
Brendan Gallagher will be jetting back and forth across the country this summer and he doesn’t mind it one bit. Two weeks after learning he had been invited to the National Junior Team Junior Team Development Camp in St. John’s Newfoundland, the 18-year-old from Tsawwassen was selected in the fifth round of Saturday’s NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadians. That means the Vancouver Giants standout will be heading to Montreal on Friday to attend a three-day rookie camp. There should be another trip east for the Canadians main camp in September. Gallagher enjoyed a breakthrough sophomore season in the Western Hockey League, racking up 81 points, including a team-leading 41 goals. The feisty 5-foot-8 winger also ranked third with 111 penalty minutes and delivered in the playoffs with 21 points in 16 games this spring. Still, there was enough questions about his lack of size for the NHL Central Scouting Bureau to list him 174th among North American skaters in their final rankings. With European prospects also
factored in, it meant there would be no certainty Gallagher would be drafted despite Rogers Sportsnet ranking him number one among their sleeper picks. That’s why the former South Delta Storm Bantam standout and his family took a low key approach to the weekend proceedings. Gallagher watched the second day of draft coverage on the NHL Network with his mom and sister while his dad and brother were at a hockey tournament in Calgary. He had also promised to attend a birthday party of a young heart transplant survivor. “It’s a good thing I got drafted before round five because I wasn’t going to be home for the final two rounds,” he laughed. “I didn’t have a lot of expectations going into it but of course I’m very excited now and what lies ahead.” The Canadiens and the Phoenix Coyotes were the two teams to show the most interest in him. “The same scout who took me out for lunch was the first one to call and congratulate me,” said Gallagher. “From a (Giants) perspective, I wished things would have gone a little better but, for me, I would have to say it was a pretty successful year.”
South Delta Minor Hockey graduate and Vancouver Giants standout Brendan Gallagher was selected in the fifth round by the Montreal Canadians in last weekend’s NHL Entry Draft.
NHL draft turns Nicholls family into Maple Leafs fans MARK BOOTH
Josh Nicholls looked high and low on the family tree and couldn’t find one supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs. That all changed during a lifetime moment on Saturday. The storied NHL franchise selected the 18-year-old from Tsawwassen in the seventh round (182nd overall) of last Saturday’s Entry Draft. “We have some fans now,” laughed Nicholls who grew up in Canuck crazy household. “I really didn’t know what to expect (going into the draft) and kept an open mind about it. It was hard not getting caught up in the excitement once it got going (on Saturday) but it felt like it took forever before I heard my name.” Nicholls enjoyed a solid sophomore season with the Western Hockey League’s
Saskatoon Blades. The smooth-skating centre doubled his point production, finishing with 48 points, including 18 goals. He added five assists in 10 playoff games and saw his final NHL Central Scouting Bureau ranking jump from 128 to 93 among North American skaters. Nicholls had an extended interview with a Maple Leafs scout midway through last season but it was another team that showed the most interest leading up to last weekend. “I was interviewed by Calgary a couple of times,” said Nicholls who watched the draft unfold with the rest of his family on the NHL Network but was also was scrambling to the computer to keep up with the fast-moving selections. The Leafs would like to see Nicholls bulk up his 6-foot-2 frame to prepare for the next step of his career. “Josh is a very good skater and another guy who is underdeveloped physically,”

said Dave Morrison, the Leafs director of amateur scouting. “He has good offensive skills and is a two-way player who I think has top six or bottom six potential. “Josh still has some work to do but we believe he is the type of kid who will put in the time and effort in Saskatoon.” Nicholls has been working out at home, including on ice sessions with skating instructor Derek Popke. He is expected to attend a Leafs orientation camp then continue his preparation to make an even greater impact with the Blades next season. “I’m suddenly going to be one of the older guys they will be counting on even more,” he said. “Other than getting used to the cold winters, it’s been a great experience in Saskatoon. I have a great billet family and my all-round game has improved a lot. With (Head coach) Lorne Molleken, you have to come prepared to work at every practice.”

Islanders aim for 4th place after sweeping Island trip Just days after it appeared the Delta Islanders were looking ahead to 2011, they produced two of their biggest wins of the year to set up an interesting finish to the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League regular season. The Islanders parted ways with veterans Carlton Schuss, Robbie Campbell and Jamal Allen in separate transactions last week. Campbell was dealt to the Coquitlam Adanacs for rookie Cody Craven and a first round pick in the 2011 midget draft. Schuss and Allen are now members of the Calgary Raiders. The trade offered little in return to the Islanders but does establish a potential talent pipeline with their Alberta neighbour. Schuss also gets better exposure to the Calgary Roughnecks who selected him in last year’s NLL Draft. The Islanders were coming off disappointing losses to Coquitlam (20-9) and New West (6-4), leaving them a combined 0-8 against the teams top three teams. “It was just time,” said general manager and head coach Greg Rennie of the moves. “The record speaks for itself and we needed to make a change. “At practice, the first thing the guys wanted to know were we throwing in the towel on the season? This was not only about getting younger but also getting better in the long run. Cody gives us a right-hander that
we desperately need and we are ecstatic to be getting another first round pick.” The Islanders responded to the major shake-up with a 7-6 win in Nanaimo on Friday, then a come-frombehind 11-9 victory over the Victoria Shamrocks Saturday. The results leaves Delta with an 8-10 record heading into tonight’s home game against the Langley Knights at 8 p.m.. The locals also host Naniamo on Saturday (5 p.m.) and then close out the regular season at Burnaby on Sunday. They have an excellent chance to move up to fourth in the league standings which would likely set-up an opening round playoff series against Burnaby with home floor advantage. Craven’s first goal as an Islander, midway through the third period, proved to be the
game winner in Nanaimo. Nathan Clare and Ryan Keith each scored twice. On Saturday in the provincial capital, Logan Schuss’ hat trick goal tied the game at 9-9 and set the stage for Keith’s game winner 82 seconds later to pickup a rare two points from the Shamrocks. Schuss finished with six points, while Keith also recorded a hat trick. Mike Mallory added two goals and four assists. Berekoff scored once and set-up three others. Blake Duncan was terrific in net for the second straight game with 29 saves. Boxla bits ... Rennie remained busy on the trading front Monday, finalizing a deal with the PoCo Saints that will see three of their top scorers and an elite defender come to Delta for cash and four midget draft prospects.
