Hands off our hospital, crowd says AMY STEELE firstname.lastname@example.org
ore than 100 people showed up to protest any potential plans to close pediatric beds or the obstetrics department at Ridge Meadows Hospital at a public meeting put on by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows NDP MLA Michael Sather Wednesday. There were plenty of passionate speeches by residents wanting to protect existing services and anger directed towards Fraser Health about the lack of public consultation. Fraser Health officials assured the crowd that no decisions have been made yet but many in the audience didn’t appear to believe Fraser Health. One woman yelled out at a Fraser Health representative not to “be condescending” and not to “insult the intelligence of every single person in this room.” Fraser Health conducted an expert review of pediatrics and obstetrics services across the region and the experts made numerous recommen-
dations about improving quality and efficiency. Some of the recommendations have caused concern amongst local doctors and citizens that existing obstetric and pediatric care at RMH could be affected. Fraser Health officials said hospital staff members throughout the region are currently being consulted and an action plan on the recommendations will likely be in place by September. At the beginning of the public meeting parents Erin Sparks and Mandeep Bhuller praised the care their sick children received at RMH. They emphasized how beneficial it was for the overall family to be able to receive local care for their children rather than having to travel out of the community. Dr. Kwadwo Asante, who worked as a pediatrician in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for 20 years and is now the medical director of the Asante Centre, which helps children with fetal alcohol syndrome, said this community has “good service” for women and children.
“It’s the right of children to have a people will be “scurrying around in place here. (The hospital) is not only traffic” to Abbostford, Surrey and for adults,” said Asante about the other hospitals south of the Fraser possibility of the pediatric beds in because there’s no services north of the Fraser. the hospital closing.

Eng said people would have to drive a minimum of 45 minutes to get to New Westminster or Abbotsford hospitals and then “once we do get to that hospital we’re going to have to wait the infamous emergency room wait.” “That’s not right. As a community Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows built this hospital and we want our mothers and children here in this community,” she said. Robin Bloch, who has an eightmonth-old son and is expecting another baby in November, said he didn’t see “anything logical” about shutting down departments “to create a better, healthier, safer service when all you’re really doing is breaking what isn’t really broken at all.” “I’m sure I can speak on behalf of everybody in this city. We’re proud of the hospital,” he said.

Two years later, School Yard thrives, Pitt kids parkless
With high school out for the summer, the School Yard was full of skateboarders and BMX riders early on Tuesday, practicing their gaps and ollies, their heel flips and kick flips. The School Yard skateboard and BMX bike park has been in heavy use since it opened two years ago on the grounds of Thomas Haney Secondary in Maple Ridge, and the City of Pitt Meadows has identified $450,000 to build a new one in 2011. The goal is to build the skatepark next year, as “there’s a demand and a need for that recreational facility,” said Bruce McLeod, manager of parks and open spaces with the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Parks and Leisure Services. There was a small skatepark in Pitt Meadows next to city hall but that was torn down a couple years ago to make way for underground parking in the civic centre area. While the money for the skatepark is in the city’s five-year plan for 2011, the expenditure will need to be confirmed by council this fall during its budget planning. According to McLeod, the skatepark could be located at Harris Road Park — currently parks and leisure is working on a master plan for the park. A few years ago, parks and leisure services consulted the community on where a skatepark could be located, but “we’re really limited in the urban areas of Pitt Meadows where we could include something of that size,” McLeod said. The $450,000 identified in the Pitt Meadows fiveyear financial plan for the skatepark should be enough to pay for its construction, McLeod said, although it will probably not be as big as the School Yard.

IN BRIEF New regs shrink size of campfires New regulations that shrink the size of legal campfires will come into effect July 1 to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires, Forests and Range Minister Pat Bell announced Thursday. “As we head into peak camping season, I want to remind people that more than 850 fires resulted from careless human behaviour in 2009. That number must come down,” said Bell. “We want people to enjoy the great outdoors, but not at the cost of public safety.” Under the new regulations, campfires cannot be larger than 0.5 metres in height and 0.5 metres in diameter, or approximately a foot-and-a-half by a foot-and-a-half. Previously, campfires were permitted to a maximum size of onemetre by one-metre. The new rules also require campers to build a fireguard around their fires by scraping down to the dirt and clearing away potentially flammable debris, such as twigs, leaves and needles. A shovel or at least eight litres of water must be stored nearby to extinguish the fire. Provincial staff will begin educating campers about the new regulations during the Canada Day long weekend, giving people an opportunity to learn about the changes. As summer progresses, failure to comply with the new rules will result in a $345 fine. An additional $345 fine will be levied for campfires lit during a ban. An advertising campaign has been launched to reinforce the province’s zero tolerance for people who start wildfires. A new website, www.firesafebc.ca, is also available that encapsulates all provincial information.

Search and Rescue members Jen Winiarski and Del Doornbosch respond to a training call to help subject Jordan Lomothe. He pretended to have a hurt ankle, while mother and SAR team member Karin Lavoie acted as an observer.
Rescue team searching for new members JENNIFER MARKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org “Search and rescue volunteers got the man and brought him back to the boat launch where he was reunited with his family.” “Search and rescue found a 48-year-old male hiker who had gotten lost in a wooded area. Volunteers brought him back to safety.” It is not uncommon to read a story in the newspaper about someone who was lost and find the words “search and rescue” somewhere. They are hard working, dedicated volunteers who stay the unsung heroes of Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. Sue Adair, who has been a member for more than 30 years, said that’s what attracted her to Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue. “What I really liked was their anonymity,” she said and described it as “uniquely different; a wonderful way to help the community and do something for the community where your name isn’t blasted
in the paper. There are less egos involved.” Adair also said SAR is like playing “elaborate hide and seek.” Their training night last Wednesday probably felt that way when they were up in Rock Ridge doing a staged rescue. The situation set up for the team was a 14-year-old boy named Jordan out in the woods with his mom when he broke his ankle. Dave Clarke, SAR team leader, said, “This is a real typical thing for us to do. Someone gets hurt on the trail, broken ankle, they can’t walk out, and are with a group that can’t carry them out. We’ve all been on many calls like this, broken leg, ankle or fracture.” On a typical call, the RCMP is contacted by a subject and they identify that SAR is needed, so the team gets paged. During their recent training they practiced mobilizing and planning in response to a call. Later in the training, Jordan went into shock, and needed oxygen. The team has various levels of first aid, but everyone

It was one of the searches that reminded me, this is really why we do what we do, we saved her life.” ◗ For more information, watch for the upcoming advertisement in the TIMES or visit the website at www. rmsar.bc.ca.

Pitt frustrated by chapel delays
Developer won’t build it unless an operater found. MARIA RANTANEN email@example.com
itt Meadows council will ask Mosaic Homes to brainstorm with them about what to build on the chapel site in Osprey Village despite expressing disappointment at the developer’s lack of desire to build the chapel without an operator in place. Chris Barbati from Mosaic Homes attended council in committee a month ago and stated his company wouldn’t build the chapel until they had an operator for it but they did want to build a chapel. At this week’s council in committee meeting, the mayor and several council members expressed their frustration with the lack of progress on the chapel project as well as the construction of a pub or restaurant. Mayor Don MacLean said both the pub/restaurant and chapel projects seem to be
“off the table.” “ I t h i n k w e’r e a t a n impasse,” MacLean said. “My recommendation is to sit on it for a month.” Mosaic had requested council change the official

they had also committed to building a chapel in conjunction with this phase of the development - the date for completion was pushed to December, 2011, but Barbati said Mosaic would pay a $25,000 penalty rather than build it and have it sit empty. Councillor John Becker said when he talks with friends who are developers and they complain about how slow it is to get projects through municipal governments, his response is “every time we cut you guys some slack, we get screwed.” “I just feel stupid now,” Becker said. “(The chapel) ain’t going anywhere now.” Coun. Tracy Miyashita asked council whether
New draft parks master plan called ‘black hole’ of funding
Lone Pitt councillor votes no on plan. The new master plan for parks and leisure services got an endorsement from all but one Pitt Meadows councillors this week. The final draft of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Master Plan developed by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Parks and Leisure Services was presented to Pitt Meadows council in committee on Tuesday with a sample implementation plan for adoption. Councillor John Becker was the sole councillor to vote against adopting it, saying it “represents a bit of a black hole in regards to funding.” “We’re a small community with a small tax base,” Becker later told The TIMES, adding that the city either has to control its spending or increase its commercial tax base significantly. “We need some criteria we need to put a box around this expansion program,” Becker said. This is the third master plan parks and leisure services has done, and general manager Mike Murray pointed out the population of the two communities has grown by 13,000 since the last plan was adopted in 2001. By the end of this 10-year-plan, the communities are expected to grow by 30,000.
The municipality should stick to its mandate, Becker said, which is services like roads, sewers and policing. “We have to watch where we’re spending our money,” he said. He said he is also philosophically opposed to subsidizing public facilities with tax money from private business that are offering the same services. Becker said council has to have a discussion on these issues. “We’re not North Korea for crying out loud,” he said.
His opposition is not a groundswell, Becker said, and he knows other councillors most likely don’t support his position. “It’s a fight well worth losing,” Becker said. “It’s a discussion I don’t mind being on the losing end of.” The next step in the process, said Dean Rear, Pitt Meadows director of finance, is to start planning the “financial piece” to decide how to fund an implementation plan. “It’s not an exercise that can be taken lightly,” he said.

there’s an appetite to build just a gazebo on the land rather than a chapel. Coun. DebWalters said she was “embarrassed” by the situation, but she added she also doesn’t think a chapel is the “end-all and be-all.” “Let’s move forward with this,” Walters said. “This has gone on long enough.” This was echoed by other councillors who said they didn’t necessar ily want a chapel and in the end council passed a motion to meet with Mosaic Homes and brainstorm about what could be build in conjunction with the rest of the development. MacLean said he also wanted to investigate a “Minoru situation” — the Minoru Chapel in Richmond is owned by the City of Richmond but is run by a separate organization. “Let’s not eliminate anything,” he said. Peter Edmonds, spokesperson for Mosaic Homes, said the developer has addressed all the issues raised by local residents about the development and is committed to building something that works. “It’s up to council what the next step is,” Edmonds said. “The ball’s in their court.”

No decisions made yet, says Fraser Health HOSPITAL, From Page 1
Dennis Streifel, former MLA for Mission-Kent, told the audience “I don’t believe what we’re being told tonight about decisions haven’t been made.” “Consolidation unfortunately means closures and the reason that I know this is because I’ve lived through this as the MLA with the Mission hospital,” he said. “Step by step and piece by piece... that hospital disappeared. The result is as was pointed out in this room what do we have out there? A shell.” Streifel described the situation as Fraser Health sending “some nice people out to take a beating and then somebody that would rather spend money on bridges and six-lane highways and Olympics says there’s no money to service our children and our health needs.” Several audience members expressed suspicion about financial savings being the driver for the review of obstetrics and pediatrics. Close to the end of the meeting a woman told Fraser Health officials, “What we’re telling you is our taxes pay for the hospital, this is our community. You will justify any move that you’re going to do.... Maple Ridge will not stand for you arbitrarily closing down any of our wards.” Erin Sparks said children and mothers need to have access to local health care. “Our community hospital is an absolute necessity. We need to stand up for it and we

ric beds Krystal didn’t directly answer the question. She said the four pediatric beds at Ridge Meadows Hospital are only used about 30 per cent of the time and there isn’t a large demand because many pediatric cases are dealt with on an out patient basis and don’t have to be hospitalized. She said there would be no plans to close beds in general, but she didn’t comment on whether pediatric beds would cease to exist at the hospital. Maple Ridge Mission MLA Marc Dalton attended the meeting but didn’t speak. He said he would be conveying what was said at the public meeting to Health Minister Kevin Falcon at a Thursday meeting. “I would not be supportive of removing or taking (obstetric or pediatric) services from our hospital,” said Dalton. He noted Ridge Meadows Hospital has seen an expansion of its emergency room department and psychiatric beds in recent years. “I believe that will continue,” he said. Meanwhile, Sather said after the meeting he has no doubt the review is about “cutting costs but they’re trying to spin it as better care.” “I think that they got a strong message from the meeting last night that if they try this it’s not going to go down easy,” he said. “I think the pediatrics ward is definitely threatened. The obstetric is not so clear because I don’t think they have the capacity to send 900 plus births to some other hospital.”

Maple Ridge isn’t accepting any liability in relation to the incident. “I could see if it was driver error. This is not driver error,” said Noble. Her tire was flattened and the manhole also caused damage to the rim. “I’m extremely angry about this,” she said. “I think it should be the district that pays for it because it’s their domain. That’s their manhole. That manhole cover was there because there’s a hazard, a hole, so a cover is put in place and it’s meant to stay in place.
We pay for taxes for these roads to be maintained properly.” Ron Riach, property and risk manager with the district, said “there’s no way that we can guarantee the roads are going to be 100 per cent perfect 100 per cent of the time.” “We can’t have somebody out watching every manhole cover 24/7. It’s not realistic so we try and take a reasonable approach. We do monthly drive by inspections of all the roads to see if there are any problems,” he said. “That’s the best we can do to try and pick
these things up before they happen. Beyond that we’re relying on people to call us up and let us know if there’s a problem and then we go deal with it. If something happens that we didn’t know about if it was a problem we didn’t know about unfortunately there’s not much we can do to help in this case.” Riach said he’s only aware of one other incident in the last 10 years relating to an unsecured manhole cover but that was related to vandalism. “It’s a very rare thing,” he said.
Maple Ridge small businesses now have a new online tool to search that will give them a personalized list of all permits and licences required by all three levels of government in order to start up a business. The provincial government heralds BizPal as a time-saver, allowing businesses to get information in 20 minutes that it used to take a day to find out.
“The Government of Canada is committed to cutting red tape for small business, because we know that small and medium sized businesses drive our local economy and provide local jobs,” said Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp. “This is a very efficient and convenient tool for anyone thinking about starting their own business,” said Maple
Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton. “Making sure your new business has all the correct licences and permits can be quite stressful. BizPaL is a time-saving tool that provides peace of mind as well.” Meanwhile, Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said as a former small business owner he “fully appreciate(s) the efficiency and savings that (the program) offers the business
community.” “With Maple Ridge primed and ready for new business investment, BizPaL streamlines our municipality’s business permitting and licencing process which will ultimately benefit the local economy and community as whole.” BizPaL can be found at w w w. m a p l e r i d g e. c a / E N / main/business/1698/starting_anewbusinesshtml#top.

Driver wants district to pay for manhole damage
Melody Noble was driving down Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge in early May and drove over an unsecured manhole cover, which damaged one of her back wheels on her SUV. She estimates it could cost around $1,000 to repair. However, she was angered to learn that ICBC won’t cover it and she’ll have to pay her deductible because ICBC considers it a collision. It also could affect her driving record and could cause her to pay more insurance in the future. As well, the Distr ict of

Find your inner arcologist
Sprawl is out. Urban is in. A graph showing the average lot size in the Lower Mainland would show lots shrinking year by year. Condos and townhouses are increasingly common, even in places like Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Langley and Abbotsford, once the refuges of lawnloving suburbanites. We’re doing this at least partly by necessity. Land, as some political philosophers have pointed out, is different from other commodities. They aren’t making any more of it. They certainly aren’t making any more around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, where between mountains, river, ocean, and the ALR, the only choice is how fast we will densify. A dozen streams of thought are coming together in the new urbanism that has many followers in the region. The 100-mile diet. Walkable communities. Bike lane networks. Light rail. Bridge tolls. Vertical farming. Radical levels of waste reduction. Road pricing. Complete communities. So why not call this what it is? Put all of this together and it comes close to an attempt to build an arcology. The arcology is an idea that’s more than 50 years old, but it’s
always been on the fringes. Architect Paolo Saleri invented both the word and the concept. The idea is simple: cities are dense, so they use less energy per person. It takes less asphalt and energy to pave the streets used by 1,000 people living in Vancouver’s West End than it does to pave roads for the same number of people spread out over several hundred acres in a rural area. It also paves over less potential farmland or natural area. So Soleri suggested ramping it up, making hyper-density and savings of energy the guiding principles for creating new cities. Many people have envisioned arcologies as buildings so large they qualify as cities. The ideal is to create a single urban core, maybe as small as a few city blocks, that includes living space, work space, recreational facilities, and possibly even food and energy production. A heavy emphasis on recycling water and conserving energy through smart architecture are also key features. The other important thing to remember is that an arcology isn’t meant to be a prison. Indeed, it’s
meant to offer a higher quality of life, with parkland and wilderness closer to the city than ever, because of the reduction of suburban sprawl. Want a walkable community? An arcology has no roads, just elevators and possibly an internal tram. So far, no one has built one of these mega-structures, although coming up with plans for them is a favourite project of architecture students. My question is, do we actually need to build an arcology from scratch, or should we simply lump together all those prodensity ideas, give them each a nudge, and let our arcologies grow up over time? With the right supports and the right economic conditions, it isn’t hard to envision a future in which most Lower Mainland residents live within walking distance of grocery stores, libraries, parks, movie theatres, offices, and workshops. If the price of driving is high enough — either through government pricing or through the rising cost of oil — giving up a car or two becomes an attractive option. An arcology shouldn’t be a multi-billion-dollar project forced on a city, but it could be a goal for many communities, or parts of communities, to pursue. The perfect city is a constantly moving target; we’ll never build our way to utopia. But we can build better if we have a utopian goal in mind.
The Braidwood Commission has been a splash of cold water on Canada’s reputation as a benevolent country known the world over for its justice and fairness. It was ice-water for the thousands of RCMP officers and other police in jurisdictions across the land, whom retired B.C. Appeal Court Justice Thomas Braidwood made special effort to mention for their integrity and commitment to the ideals that four RCMP officers failed to uphold when they ran into a confused Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport. Robert Dziekanski’s death changed perceptions dramatically. Perhaps it will also make lasting positive changes in the way justice is served in this country. Justice Braidwood noted that the Vancouver airport security service has already taken the matter seriously enough to have initiated changes aimed at avoiding similar incidents in the future. And the provincial government has committed to immediately begin work on all 19 recommendations in Braidwood’s report released late last week, including establishing (within 12 months) a citizens’ group to investigate serious criminal complaints against police, instead of letting police continue to investigate their own — something that has been requested from many years.
Grads, be responsible Spirits are high and jubilation at the “coming of age” that graduation represents creates a heady atmosphere that tends to weigh down on gas pedals and tends toward exuberant speeds. It’s also tempting to fortify those high spirits with alcohol. Statistics show that teens still represent a significant portion of alcohol-related problems on our roadways. While less than seven per cent of drivers are between 16 and 20 years of age, they were responsible for 15 per cent of all alcohol-related crashes in 2007, and the vast majority of those were 17 and 18 years old — prime graduating age. It probably will be no surprise to learn that June is the worst month of the year for alcohol-related crashes. The worst statistic of all is the one that shows an increase in alcohol-related traffic fatalities from 2006 to 2007, the most recent years for which full numbers are available. We don’t want to be a drag on graduation celebrations. Quite the contrary, we’d like to see every last grad make it through the month, through the summer, and deep into the rich and interesting future that should await them. That’s why we applaud any and all students who work towards dry grads and safe celebrations.

The board of education sent out a letter on May 20 asking for public feedback on the proposed reductions to the 2010/2011 budget. At that time the preliminary budget was not available, making it impossible to comment. On June 9 they released the budget and I asked some questions at the public board meeting, then followed up with an e-mail on June 10 asking for further clarification about certain budget reductions and reallocations. I waited 10 days for a response and then resent the e-mail. I received a response on June 21 answering my questions. The board chair Ken Clarkson also told me that when e-mails are “incessant” he need(s) to “weigh the benefit of the answer for one person versus the value of staff work for the common good.” They ask us for feedback and then don’t have the time to answer questions? Why ask? Here is my feedback based on the information provided to me.

let the principals and viceprincipals fulfill this role; no need to add another layer at the top. The Learning Resource Reduction of $100,000, with $40,000 being reallocated to a “School Growth Plan” concerns me. I feel a reduction of $60,000 to support student learning is not a wise move; student achievement must be a priority. Please e-mail trustees with your concerns. You can find some information on the website by going to the June 9 agenda package. You will find a summary of the major areas impacted; the actual preliminary budget does not provide these “details.” If you have any questions about the budget or the budget process, ask your trustees.

Hospital good Editor:
I recently had to go to Ridge Meadows Hosptial for a seven-day stay, a place where no one wants to spend time. We are always hearing about one thing or another not being good enough. Well, I am here to give a shout out to the hospital and its staff, starting with the ER nurses and doctors for the kindness and care given me. For that week, I was looked after by the third floor west nurses. They work 12-hour shifts, always by your bedside when needed. They greet you with a smile when their shift begins and when their shift is over they still greet you with that smile. To them it’s not a job, to them you are someone they care about.

Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Community Services Invites everyone to join us in a celebration of National Aboriginal Day
My husband and I belong to a small group of people under the covering of Prayer Canada from different Christian denominations who meet weekly in the council chambers of Maple Ridge to pray for our local council members. Just recently through circumstances, we found ourselves attending a council meeting for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised at how well and efficiently the meeting was run. The mayor and council often have hard choices to make with regard to the city and its plans both now and in the future and do not treat these decisions lightly. Much thought and discussion go into these decisions. There are often criticisms about their choices written in the local newspapers with regards to certain decisions that have to be made which cannot possibly please everyone, but all in all we have a hard-working council who really do seem to care about the needs of this town and want the best for it. Thank you, Mayor Daykin and council for all the hard work you do for the town of Maple Ridge. Jennifer Turner Maple Ridge

MLA Dalton not on ‘hit list’ JONATHAN FOWLIE CanWest News Service
Organizers of an anti-HST petition published Wednesday a hit list of 24 Liberal MLAs they plan to target for recall in November if the government hasn’t repealed the harmonized sales tax. But Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton was not on the list, according to the campaign’s website. Led by Boundary-Similkameen MLA John Slater, the list includes those Liberals who represent ridings where at least 25 per cent of people signed the anti-HST petition. Comprising half the 48-member Liberal caucus, the list includes 10 cabinet ministers and Speaker Bill Barisoff. “We haven’t yet decided which ones will be recalled
first or how many,” petition organizer Bill Vander Zalm said in a news release. “Our sense is that we will recall one or two at a time, so as not to bring down the government, but to pressure them to repeal the HST. We want these MLAs to pressure their government to listen to them, or risk losing them in a recall.” Vander Zalm didn’t include Premier Gordon Campbell on the hit list because of the possibility he won’t run in the next election. Finance Minister Colin Hansen was also left off; just 17 per cent of his VancouverQuilchena riding has signed the petition. Recall is a separate process from the petition, and allows voters to remove an MLA from his or her seat in the legisla-
ture. To succeed, a recall petition must be signed within a 60-day period by 40 per cent of people who were registered to vote in the riding in the last election. Under the law, a recall petition cannot be circulated until 18 months after any election, meaning the process cannot begin until November. Organizers of the HST petition said Wednesday they’ve collected 670,000 signatures so far, with at least 15 per cent from every riding -surpassing the 10-per-cent minimum requirement. They plan to submit the petition to Elections BC for verification on June 30. Elections BC has 42 days to count and validate the petition. If submitted on schedule, they’ll have until Aug. 11 to complete the count.

Youth Expo looks at job opportunities
he Ridge Meadows Service Canada Centre for Youth is hosting its second annual Youth Expo on June
29th at Thomas Haney Secondary. The Youth Expo features more than 10 employers
This will be the third consecutive year the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Agricultural Association is offering a free gate to Country Fest. Although the storm of the season swept through the fairgrounds on the Saturday night of last year’s fair, it still had an all-time-high attendance of 14,000. This year’s festival is July 24-25 and things are kicking with the arrival of the Home Arts and Gardening Books
entry form right there.” The theme of the 2010 Home Arts and Gardening Building is “Flower Power” to go with the Woodstock fair theme. Special pr izes will be awarded to exhibitors who create an item that best depicts this theme. Many other special gifts and prizes are also featured in each section. Not only does it give people a chance to boast about how beautiful your hydrangeas are, or how delicious your blueberry loaf is, but you can also win some pretty hefty prizes as well. “Do you have a talent with woodworking? Do your friends rave about your photography skills? Is your apple pie out of this world? Would you like some recognition for your special talent? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, you’ll be thrilled to know that the Country Fest prize books are up and ready. This year we have added many new categories.” ◗ For more details on the event, call 463-6922 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Another choice would be to go directly to the office and fill out the
and volunteer organizations with whom youth can network, and will promote youth employment by providing information on job search skills, a selection of print materials and other information about services offered by the SCCY and many other governmental programs. “ With our 2nd annual Youth Expo, we will help young people identify where
the jobs are and how they can best apply for them,” said Anushka Samarawickrama, Youth Services Officer. “This event is just one way to highlight the importance of getting that first job for some young people or finding career-related work experience for others.” Service Canada Centres for Youth link youth and employers.

Hill peaks with contest, new CD
Maple Ridge-raised singer-songwriter Jess Hill (pictured) is one of the finalists in the Peak Performance Project. Hill will be competing along with 19 other B.C.based artists for a grand prize of $100,500. Hi l l re c e n t l y f i n i s h e d recording her second fulllength album. “I was walking home from work and got a text message from a friend, congratulating me on making the Top 20,” she said. “It was a total surprise.” Hill has spent the last few months finalizing artwork and planning for the release of Orchard. “The Peak Performance Project is somewhat like
university for independent musicians,” Hill said. “They literally send us up the mountain for a weeklong Industry Boot Camp. This experience is extremely valuable at this stage of my career. I’m so excited about my new record and par-
ticipating in the Peak Project presents me with new opportunities for sharing it with the world.” Hill’s MySpace page features two tracks from her asyet unreleased album.. ◗ Visit www.mypsace.com/ jesshill or www.jesshill.ca.

Maple Ridge’s Cooper Morrow has been named the nation’s top Sea Cadet. He is pictured here from a review in February, when the RCSCC Invincible was named a new Sea Cadet Corps. Morrow received the National President’s Award from Capt. David Hood, president of B.C. Mainland Division of the Navy League. Chief Morrow has just finished Grade 12 in Pitt Meadows and this summer he will be one of the HMCS Quadra Chiefs. Next year he plans to join the Canadian Army and attend Athabaska University, where he will study psychology. He has already been studying Arabic languages for several years. A provincial competitive wrestler, he has also competed in track and field events and maintains a strict regimen of physical conditioning. Cooper has given extensive volunteer time in such community services as raising money for the battered women’s centre, youth leadership and feeding the homeless. He has also completed the youth volunteer firefighter program through the Pitt Meadows Fire Department.

Conserving Water In summer, demand for treated water almost doubles, but it’s also the time we receive the least amount of rain and have the least amount of water in storage. Help conserve water by purchasing a rain barrel and watering your garden or lawn wisely. Remember, seasonal sprinkling regulations are in effect from June 1 until September 30. Even-numbered addresses can water on Wednesday and Saturday between 4-9am and 7-10pm. Odd-numbered addresses can water on Thursday and Sunday during the same hours.

Following mother’s footsteps on the court
Maple Ridge Rambler Kolbie Orum will be packing her basketball bag and heading to destinations like Las Vegas and Toronto this summer. TROY LANDREVILLE firstname.lastname@example.org
olbie Orum has the genetic toolbox to be a dominant basketball player. Starting this summer, she hopes to use all of her athletic tools as she wears provincial colours. The 14-year-old Maple Ridge Secondary student, already 6’2” tall, is beginning to gain traction in her efforts to follow the lofty path forged by her mom Rene (Czerwinski) Croft. Croft starred with Port Coquitlam Secondary’s senior girls basketball team in the mid 1980s. After graduating from high school in 1986, Croft earned a full-ride scholarship with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). “My mom kind of introduced me

to basketball in Grade 7,” Orum said. “After that I started getting into more camps, and then I made teams, and I started liking it more and more.” Orum hopes to sculpt her own name in B.C. high school basketball circles. She was a force with MRSS’s junior girls team this past season, averaging 25 points and 15 rebounds per game before being pulled up to the senior squad. While she spent more time watching than playing as a senior Rambler, Orum skipped a few points in her hoops IQ, thanks to MRSS head coach Don Herman. “He [Herman] has moulded me into the player that I am,” Orum said. “I just started working with him this year and he’s been a really good coach. He helped me with everything. He wants me to be the best
that I can be.” To continue her progression, Orum said she needs to work on her perimeter game: “If I go to college, I’ll most likely be in a three-four position, so I need to work on my dribbling and my outside shooting more.” After leading her provincial regional team by scoring 25 points per game, and helping it defeat Brookswood in the final at the Langley Events Centre, Orum made the B.C. U15 girls provincial blue team. The lone player from Maple Ridge on the squad, she joins players from Langley, Surrey, Kamloops, Vancouver, Richmond, Prince George, Ladysmith, Port Coquitlam, and Kelowna. “It has helped me with my dribbling, my shooting, everything” Orum said, of her experience thus

Orum and Team B.C. will be busy this summer, playing in the WolfPack Tournament in Kamloops, Mid-Nite Madness in Seattle, Center Stage in Las Vegas, and, finally, the national championships in Toronto Aug. 2-7. Looking ahead to the summer, Orum said, “It’s going to be intense. It’s going to be hard and it’s going to be fun.” Playing for B.C. should prepare Orum for pressure-packed situations in the future. “I like pressure. If you don’t have pressure then there’s no point in playing,” she said. Looking a couple of years down the road (she is entering Grade 10 in the fall) Orum hopes to earn a scholarship with a college. “I don’t know which one yet,” she said.

Local Riders test the Metal
The Local Ride Racing Team from Maple Ridge has continued to tear it up on the B.C. competitive cycling circuit, but lately they’ve been riding in the dirt. This past Sunday saw eight team riders participate in the 15th annual Squamish Test of Metal – a 900-rider mass start 67-kilometre point-topoint race. Local Ride’s Sandra Walter of Coquitlam rode to the podium in the elite women’s category, placing an impressive second behind National Champion and World Cup leader Catharine Pendrel. “I had such a slow start, I never thought I would be able to turn it around and make the podium,” said Walter. “But at the halfway point, I was finally able to push hard on the long climb and picked off several women, and suddenly I was in fourth.” Luck also played a role in her success. She passed teammate Jean Ann McKirdy
of Maple Ridge on the side of the trail with her second flat tire of the day. McKirdy was able to fix the flat and rolled across the line in “lucky” 13th. She eventually placed 58th overall out of more than 900 starters. The fastest Local Ride finisher of the day was Steve Devantier of Pitt Meadows, who finished sixth in the men’s 30-34 category and 47th overall in a time of 3:04:05. Ryan Newsome of Port Moody trailed Devantier by less than a second to take 48th overall and fourth in the men’s 35-39 category. The two were gunning for the coveted sub-threehour time marker in the 67-kilometre race that covered terrain that varied from pavement and gravel roads to rough, technical singletrack trails with obstacles, such as roots, rocks, narrow bridges and drops. Local Ride Racing’s Paul Craig of Pitt Meadows completed his 15th Test of Metal.
Local Ride’s Sue Weston of Pitt Meadows, Jeanine Ball of Vancouver, and Alan Young of Port Moody also showed grit and determination to finish the popular mountain bike marathon that sold out on Jan. 1 in 24 minutes. Ball crashed early in the race and cut up her side, but she finished despite the injury. Local Ride Racers were also out in force at the B.C. Cup mountain bike race on Burnaby Mountain on June 13, with 11 competing and six of them making podium appearances. McKirdy won the elite women’s race, handily besting teammate Walter, who finished second, by five minutes. St e v e D e v a n t i e r a l s o pulled off a convincing victory in the senior men’s race. Chelsea Bilsbarrow of Victoria placed first in the senior women’s race, and Weston took second in the master 40+ women’s competition.
After a few trial runs this year, the full season on the Ridge Meadows Flames will be broadcast via the Internet if sponsorship comes through. The Ridge Meadows Flames, Play Full Screen and Lower Mainland Sports Net-
work have an agreement in principle to show 23 home video broadcasts with commentators Ryan Briggs and Brad Reminek. Dave McIlroy and Play Full Screen will produce the broadcasts over the Internet using software developed by McIlroy’s com-
pany for live streaming. Briggs and Adam Dunfee founded LMSN in 2009. Briggs has called games for the Vancouver Canadians, UBC Thunderbirds, Vancouver Trojans and Delta Ice Hawks and is the voice of B.C. high school football.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Aries March 21 - April 19: Be ambitious Sunday. Information is coming (or being suppressed) from places it usually doesn’t. Friendships and optimism perk you up Monday to Wednesday – this relieves the general sluggishness you’re steeped in. (It’s a good sluggishness; you’re in a month-long natural hibernation cycle, designed to heal some overstrained parts of your health/emotions.) Use these three days to view the future, and make subsequent decisions about who/what to nurture, and who/what to chuck in your life. Rest, retreat Thursday/Friday. Don’t butt your head against an invisible brick wall Saturday.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Start important projects, seek favours, make personal appearances. (E.g., if seeking a job, show at the door, or phone, rather than sending a resume.) Your communications skills are sharp and career-oriented right now. Your money picture remains good. You could purchase a small luxury item. This inﬂuence helps career, too – angle for a pay raise. Sunday’s for relationships. Life’s deeper side rises to the surface Monday to Wednesday: research, invest, commit to a lifestyle change, become intimate – all’s good. Gentle joy Thursday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: My superﬁcial advice is: be ambitious this week and the next few; it’s your time to strike. However, a “karmic hangover” affects this area through July 3. You might be wise to wait until Saturday onward to act. A different approach, situation, idea, project, might arrive July 3 onward, while those that draw you prior to this day might be subtle traps, involve suspect motives, or simply promise more than they will deliver. (Remember, through March 5, 2011 don’t push higher-ups, bosses, judges, etc.) Rely on your “inner antennae” more than my advice. Romantic vibes Monday to Wednesday!
Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent lies on communications,travel,siblings,casualacquaintances. You’re busy, but the stakes aren’t high, and you handle everything easily. One pretty important communication might exist early week – perhaps having a legal or love import. Sunday’s mellow, compassionate, good for gentle love, intellectual friends or foreign culture. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday – all’s good! Friends, ﬂirtations, optimism, happiness brighten Wednesday night to Thursday/Friday. But retreat Saturday – nothing good will come of certain associates, gossip, etc. Read an atlas!
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, plan your future. Be charitable, seek spiritual regeneration. Deal with governments, institutions, head ofﬁces, and “red tape.” Tackle a few chores Sunday. Early week might bring a few secrets, or an interesting nugget of information in a book, newspaper, etc. Relationships come front and centre Monday to Wednesday — be diplomatic, your position is not strong. Life’s secret ways open up Wednesday eve to Friday: investments, debt, sexual urges, research, dreams. Your hunches are accurate, results good. Don’t express your opinion Saturday, despite enthusiasm.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: An intellectual, legal, cultural, educational, publishing, far travel and gentle love trend ﬂoats into your life through the weeks ahead. Delay real action in any of these spheres until July 4 onward – subtle “wrong doorways” exist. Still, you’ll be happy, you’ll enjoy the mellow affection of this week! Sunday’s for talk, travel, news. You might learn something signiﬁcant early week – a tidbit in talk, or a way of looking – that changes your outlook, philosophy. Rest Monday-Wednesday. This last night to Friday bring romance, creative and pleasure urges – all ﬁne! Caution Saturday.
Gemini May 21-June 20: This week and the next few emphasize money, earnings, the price of things, possessions, memory, rote learning and, possibly, a sensual interlude. Early week, you might sense/know that these things are either tied to, or oppose, their deeper side (investments,family ﬁnances,inheritance, deeply consequential sex, etc.) For example, the amount you can invest is tied to earnings. In general (except Sunday) it’s better to focus on the light side, earnings, light sex, etc. Intellectual success, gentle love hover Monday-Wednesday. Be ambitious Thursday (very!) and Friday. Saturday’s hopeful.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You will enjoy this week and the next few – friends, popularity, optimism, entertainment, light romance and happiness buoy your days! Your sexual magnetism intensiﬁes through July. (Already has, since June 6.) Your determination grows to cause some signiﬁcant change in your life. This would be very natural – go ahead. Sunday’s romantic, creative – seek pleasure. Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday; you’ll accomplish them. Relationship excitement enters Wednesday night to Friday. Be diplomatic – but eager! Caution Saturday: an attraction, ﬁnancial situation, has problems.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This week and the next few, the accent lies on life changes, sexual urges, investments and debt, secrets, research, dreams. Your subconscious rises to the surface. Hunches are accurate. But don’t act on any of these in a major way before July 4 – especially be careful with ﬁnances and intimate commitments. Before then, a subtle trap exists which you might not “wake to” for months, years. Spend – carefully – Sunday. Friends, talk, errands Monday to Wednesday. Secrets, data, are everywhere! Home draws, and is a good place, Thursday/Friday. Romance needs caution Saturday.

June 27 - July 3 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Although relationships ﬁll the weeks ahead, and will generally be fruitful, productive and pleasing, be cautious about forming long-standing, consequential links. That applies to March 5, 2011, but especially this week. Early week, you might meet a talkative person, perhaps someone who could/would be a mate or an employee or coworker. You might be “signing on” for a situation that turns dull, draws you into wrong choices, or simply doesn’t fulﬁl its promise. All June/July, avoid a lawsuit, especially over property or children. Chase money Monday-Wednesday. Make friends Thursday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week, and to late July. (Well, maybe take a rest Sunday — and don’t tackle anything frenetically Saturday, July 3.) You’ll get a lot done, which will free you for the opportunities of August. Make sure you focus your efforts on the right tasks – tackle what’s outstanding, but don’t create new work projects. Your energy and effectiveness rises nicely Monday to Wednesday — wink at someone! Chase money or shop Thursday (better) and Friday. Friends don’t tell all Saturday. Your sexual magnetism is high all June/July – interesting “situations” arise. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week offers romance, pleasure, creative surges, passion about anything, charming kids, nature’s beauty – enjoy these, but don’t let them lead you into major lifeaffecting actions (especially this week, but generally to March, 2011). However, a subtle trap might lurk. E.g., romance could lead to a love affair that turns your life in the wrong direction. Sunday’s for fun, though it might turn profound if you meet a Virgo. Depths, mysteries, investments/debt, life changes Monday-Wednesday – dive in, all’s fine. Your energy, charisma soar Thursday/Friday – impress someone! firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
