Two men charged in connection with Pitt rave Victim has changed schools because of bullying but she says she’s getting “much stronger” than before. Amy Judd

The victimization of a 16-year-old girl who was allegedly sexually assaulted at a rave party last September has not ended. In a statement to the media on Thursday on her and her family’s behalf, Sgt. Peter Thiessen, spokesperson for the RCMP Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service, said “our daughter has been bullied and has had to leave school.” In the statement, the girl said “to

the people who did not support me, who called me names, who spread lies about me, thank you because you made me much stronger than I’ve ever been before.” Two men were charged on Wednesday in connection with the sexual assault. Both have been released with the promise to appear in court on Jan. 12. Dennis John Allen Warrington, 19, of Langley, has been charged with making and distributing child pornography. Thiessen said he was arrested at a home he frequents in Maple Ridge on Wednesday. Another man, Colton Ashton McMorris, 18, from Maple Ridge has been charged with sexual assault. He turned himself in to police along with his legal counsel, and was the man

previously arrested and then released. Charges have already been approved against a 16-year-old from Maple Ridge for the production and distribution of child pornography. Ridge Meadows RCMP do not anticipate making any further arrests on the case at this time, according to Thiessen. “Initially we did say and we still do feel that there was more than one suspect involved in this sexual assault,” he said. “The information that we received from witnesses, statements that we received, clearly indicated in our minds that that was the case, however bringing that before the courts is a whole other issue.” Thiessen said that at this point police do not have the evidence to support the allegations and statements in regards to further charges.

What is being referred to as a ‘code of silence’ still exists among many young people that attended the rave, according to police, and those people, most of them teenagers, are not cooperating with the investigation. “They know who they are, we have spoken to those individuals, they do have an opportunity to clear themselves if they choose to, they have not chosen to,” said Thiessen. Police also released details of a toxicology test taken from the girl about 20 hours after the alleged assault. “The test came back negative for any alcohol or for any drug at the time of the testing,” said Thiessen.

New park for District at Jackson’s Farm Compromise solution What’s OnLine violates the Official Community Plan.

Local agreement

Three representatives each from the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district and the Katzie First Nation will sign a Local Education Agreement today, Jan. 11, that formalizes the two groups’ intent to work together. “It’s a recommitment to work together toward success for Aboriginal students, specifically Katzie Aboriginal youth,” said Doug Hoey, principal of Aboriginal education for SD42. “It covers certain components of our responsibility to help the students and the Katzies’ responsibility to help the students.” • More online: www.mrtimes.com, see “News”

In 2010, Lower Jackson Farm became the property of the District of Maple Ridge in exchange for Upper Jackson Farm being developed. Jackson Farm was the centre of heated debate for several years as the owners wanted to develop the land. The owners agreed to dedicate Jackson Farm to the district for a park if they got approval for a 113-lot subdivision on the 8.9-hectare Upper Jackson Farm, which is in the Thornhill urban reserve. Council gave the land exchange third reading in September 2009 after a divisive public hearing, which was so packed participants spilled out into the hallway of council chambers. On March 26, Metro

Vancouver voted 66 to 49 in favour of allowing urban development in the Thornhill urban reserve on Upper Jackson Farm in exchange for the District getting Jackson Farm for a park. The development goes against Maple Ridge’s Official Community Plan, as development isn’t supposed to happen in Thornhill until its population reaches 100,000, an area plan is completed, and other triggers are in place. If the development had been further into Thornhill, Daykin said he would not have supported it. Beryl Eales, a longtime advocate for keeping the land undeveloped, called the property the only open pastoral landscape in Maple Ridge where people can gather. She said the land is home to rare plants and valuable wetlands and is popular with walkers and

When it snows, Eales said, the land transforms into a desirable tobogganing destination. “It is so important to get heritage designation,” Eales said. “This is not just another park; this is Jackon’s farm.” Final reading of the

in the end. “I’m sure that people will look back in 20 or 30 years and judge us kindly,” Daykin said. With the new park, the area will now have two good parks, Albion and Jackson Farm, he added. He said some “exciting planning” could take place when the park is in District ownership.

Family grateful for support

Be it resolved:

My ongoing resolution is to advocate for the transition of the historical Maple Ridge to the future Maple Ridge in a respectful, thoughtful, and well-balanced manner for those who live here now, as well as the 60,000 projected to arrive over the next 30 years. I will strive to encourage the creation of employment opportunities – real Michael Morden jobs which will provide real Maple Ridge councillor careers; to attract commerce Community: and industry to provide those Maple Ridge jobs and create a healthy, Number of thriving economy, as well Christmases survived: as seek the needed services, from all levels of govern50 ment, to support our citizens and businesses. Maple Ridge is going to grow without any doubt, and I promise to help guide that growth in a common sense and responsible manner. For me it’s not about politics, it’s about people and wanting to be a sound-minded pro-community leader working within our current political and bureaucratic structure to achieve the absolute best for what matters most to me – my family and my community.

Jackson Farm agreement is scheduled for Maple Ridge council’s Tuesday night meeting. If approved on Tuesday, the parkland will come into District ownership. There was “no shortage of passion” in the community over Jackson Farm, said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin, but he said this was a good decision

He stressed, however, that the test was done quite a significant time later, and that there are experts who are prepared to testify in a potential court case that will speak to her state of mind and her symptomology that she showed at the time of the alleged offense. Social media played a big role in this case and for the most part, the sharing and distribution of the photos taken at the rave have diminished, but Thiessen said that is not to say that the topic is still not being discussed. “There are some very inappropriate, disgusting, revolting things being said on social media,” he said. He explained that it can

taint people’s thoughts and memories of the incident. “That’s the downside of social media.” Speaking from a parent perspective, Thiessen said that any parent would be outraged about the online conversations regarding this young girl. “Could you stand for it for a minute?” he asked. “You would expect action by someone and that’s what we’re trying to do.” The victim’s family statement said “hopefully these charges will help to prevent any more attacks on [their daughter’s] character.” They are hoping justice will be served, and praised members of the community and the police for their “tremendous help and support.”

“Creating personalized smiles for over 27 years”

‘New Glenwood’ thriving Closing schools was emotional, but students and parents have adjusted. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Two schools closed in June 2010 because of low enrolment. Riverside and Mount Crescent elementary schools officially closed their doors to elementary students on June 30, but both will be used by the school district for other purposes and the students have been absorbed into other schools. Glenwood Elementary absorbed about 100 of the 140 students from Mount Crescent Elementary, which resulted in an unofficial amalgamation of the two schools. In addition, almost all the staff came over, including teachers, special education assistants and Krista Larson, a supervision aid and a parent of a child who moved over from Mount Crescent. She sees the new students mingling in the playground and integrating into groups. “As a parent, (the closure) was harder than for my child,” Larson said, adding that the children have “transitioned well.” The school closure meetings at both schools were emotional with parents arguing to keep their children’s schools open, but in the end, the board of educaiton made the decision to close both because of the numbers. Terri Stumpp, a parent who had a child at Mount Crescent, said she was a “basket case” in August, worried about how her son would integrate into his new school.

But as soon as he started, “he was fine – absolutely fine.” She thought this year would be a writeoff for her son, but it’s turning out to be a great year for him, because “it’s just more friends (for him).” “(The parents) were bitter they were closing our school,” Stumpp said. There was also a fear of the unknown, Stumpp said, but she sees the needs of students being met at their new school. “It’s come around and kids are mixing,” Stumpp said. Jovo Bikic moved from a vice-principal position at Maple Ridge Secondary School to the principalship of Glenwood Elementary this year. Closing Mount Crescent and working to build a new community has taken a lot of work from the staff, students, and parents, Bikic said, but he added the “if this whole scenario ever has to play out again, it would go much smoother.” Bikic said they were able to bring the best of both schools together, and the “new Glenwood” is turning into a true community school, a hidden gem in the city. PAC meetings attract up to 20 parents, Stumpp said, something unheard of at Mount Crescent. Riverside Elementary opened as the Riverside Centre housing international education, adult education and Ridge Meadows College. Topia, a Korean group, will stay at the school at least for the time being. At Mount Crescent, because it is next door to Maple Ridge Secondary, many of the rooms will be used for high school instruction, allowing for the removal of 21 of the 23 portables from MRSS.

Police target impaired drivers With an eye to making the roads safer during the holiday season, the Ridge Meadows RCMP held their annual Counterattack campaign, and Cpl. Dale Somerville of Ridge Meadows RCMP Traffic Services said they found that some drivers still continue to drink and drive. “One of our strategic enforcement goals is to reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes,” he said. “This will include enforcing all laws as they pertain to this, including impaired driving, and the immediate roadside prohibitions.” During the month-long campaign, police took nine drinking drivers off the roads, and issued immediate 90-day driving prohibitions, after these drivers provided breath samples that resulted in fail readings on the roadside screening devices. These drivers also had their vehicles impounded for 30 days. Nine more drivers had their driving privileges prohibited for three days after their breath samples produced warning levels. 152 drivers were charged for speeding, one of those was for excessive speeding, and 53 more people were charged for failing to wear their seatbelts. “Ridge Meadows RCMP will also continue to target aggressive drivers, and all persons who fail to wear their seatbelts in a correct manner,” said Cpl. Somerville.

Local residents pepper sprayed

Two men and a woman were pepper sprayed near the McDonald’s restaurant in the 22700 block of Lougheed Highway just after 8 p.m. on Monday Jan. 3. The restaurant’s manager called police and a member of the RCMP Lower Mainland District’s Police Dog Services attended. The officer was able to locate two suspects, without the aid of the dog, and through further investigation learned that a 29-yearold Maple Ridge man was responsible. He was arrested and then later released on a promise to appear in court on a later date.

Jon Scholten said that winning over three million dollars is not going to change him, he has everything already.

Pitt resident wins lottery

Santa Claus made local man Jon Scholten a multi-millionarie. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@mrtimes..com

Pitt Meadows’ own Jon Scholten arrived at the B.C. Lottery offices today to pick up a cheque for $3.2 million. It was quite a Christmas for the 72year-old man, who won the Christmas day 6/49 jackpot. “My daughter was hosting Christmas dinner this year and called to ask me if I could pick her up a cooking pan,” said Scholten as he received his cheque at BCLC’s Vancouver office. “Along the way I stopped for gas and that’s when I bought the ticket,” he said,

recounting that he purchased the lucky ticket at Petro Canada on Prairie Avenue in Port Coquitlam. But Scholten didn’t learn he was a winner until the next day. On Boxing Day, he checked the numbers and realized he’d matched all six – earning him $3,270,475.30. Instead of telling his family – which included a wife, six children, and seven grandchildren – of the big win, he slid the ticket under a rug and said nothing for three days. “I think I just needed some time to let it sink in,” he said. “It won’t change me. I already have everything I need. I have a good wife, a nice home, and a good life, so I will simply enjoy sharing this money with my family.”

Twenty-seven members of the outdoor club hiked from the boat launch parking lot to Scout Bay, about a two-hour trek, before the swim. Jan Clark, the vice-president of the club in charge of activities, said she was pleased with the turnout and that 27 people was a large number of people for a New Year’s Day hike.

Our View

New 2010 laws make roads safer

Speeding and cell phone restrictions were smart pieces of legislation. There are still a few out there who continue to disregard the law, their own safety, and their responsibility to others. But for the most part, the year-old law aimed at curbing the dangerous actions of compulsive talkers and texters among us has taken hold. It was a year ago this week that it became time to put down the cellphones and Blackberrys while driving – at least for those who weren’t intelligent enough to have already done so. The province started 2010 with a ban on the use of all hand-held cellphones and portable devices used for games or texting while driving. Hands-free technology is still allowed – although rational voices immediately began calling for an extension to the ban, to include them. Studies have shown, in fact, that hands-free devices are actually just as dangerous as hand-held phones and the like, because they pull our attention away from our driving – and that is the real culprit in statistics that show using a cellphone while behind the wheel of a car put you at equal risk of having an accident as driving while drunk. Speaking of which, the provincial government is to be applauded for two further measures it took in 2010 to help make roads a bit safer. Lowering the provincial impairment limit below the federal level – to .05 per cent blood-alcohol from .08 per cent – is an acknowledgment that the legal limit specified in the Criminal Code of Canada is not severe enough. You don’t have to be falling-down drunk to be a deadly hazard to fellow motorists. And for those who choose speed, instead of alcohol, as their weapon of choice, the province has made it more painful for drivers who get caught speeding by more than 40 km/h over the speed limit. All in all, that amounts to a pretty strong year in favour of road safety. Not every new law deserves hearty applause, but this suite of 2010 traffic laws are worth a hardy pat on the back. – B.G.

Malawi thankful for wells READERS’ CHOICE Dear editor,

One week in November 2010, three lucky communities located in the Ntcheu district in Malawi, woke up to find their long-time dreams fulfilled overnight. Their wishes to have clean and safe water were answered when Project Wellness suddenly moved in and provided one borehole (well) in each of the three villages. Based in Maple Ridge, Project Wellness is a non-profit organization helping Malawi. The organization has previously been associated with 14 water boreholes and has provided other materials including cash donations in the poor communities in the Ntcheu district since 2005. The communities in the Kantande and Mtema villages are overwhelmed with disbelief and joy that at last they have safe and clean water. As a result, the problems of waterborne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea and bilharzia are now a thing of the past. In addition, water is being used to grow more crops for food and for sale in the dry season, which is bringing additional money to the villagers. The entire communities in the Kantande and Mtema villages wish to convey their thanks to the Rotary Club, who have provided funds for the water wells. In addition to the boreholes, the communities in Ntcheu district highly appre-

ciate the material and cash donations which they have received from Project Wellness over the past five years. These items have included soccer balls, soccer team uniforms and clothes. Particularly significant is the assistance given to more than 400 orphaned children who have continued to receive food and real care. For this purpose, Project Wellness has constructed two specially designed buildings, or “feeding halls,” in which the orphaned children receive daily care, tuition and food. The feeding program has become a tremendous success and has brought much joy in the lives of the poor children. The assistance given to the poor people in Ntcheu district has made a real difference in the ordinary lives of numerous men, women, and children and continues to be greatly appreciated. However, the need for more material and financial aid is still on the rise. As we are writing this report, at least 10 vulnerable villages need water wells as a matter of urgency. Unless the water wells are donated, poor people’s health and lives are at great risk.

S.P. Kachipande, Former Malawi ambassador to the United States

Politics

Money needed Hall of for the poor, too shame Dear editor,

Canadians should be ashamed that a homeless person in Port Coquitlam died recently, let alone others across this national landscape. It is truly mindboggling that we have taxpayer money for sickening G20 summits or toilet bowl cost for the Olympics, illegal refugees, criminals like Clifford Olson and Russell Williams, military grossly overpriced jets and more. However, we do not have money for the homeless or poverty stricken Canadians or social programs. Why bother with the poor or the homeless: let us stereotype them with the same brush that they are losers, boozers, lazy or drug addicts with mental problems? Wrong! They are human beings within the cavity of this country who deserve help more than Africa, Haiti, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq or other freeloading whining nations dependent on our “freebies” for decades. It is apparent that our imbeciles in the government (current or past) are more interested in butt kissing the international community, than addressing the dire and growing

Resources

social dillemna here. We have enough money and resources to wipe out the drug cartel in South America or Mexico and other lands like Afghanistan but there lacks moral collectivity in prioritizing our resources. We’d rather fight illegal wars while our neighbours to the south steal the resources and while the body count rises. Our tax money needs to be spent on renewing fish stock resources, putting people back to work, helping the needy in our land before others abroad and, protecting our borders from criminal activity or human trafficking. Sadly put, like our police forces, you cannot trust elected officials once they squeeze through the cracks to relish their salaries, perks, and job benefits, instead of morally showing leadership and accountability. I recall a few years ago Toronto Metro police could not extricate a frozen body of a homeless person for several weeks and this is sickening. We need to fix our social problems first before babysitting other “wild and savage lands” torn by wars or criminal governments. Kerwin Maude, Pitt Meadows

energy record Dear editor:

‘Tis the season for year-end, top ten, best-of/worst-of lists. But there’s only one item on my Hall of Shame list for 2010 and that’s B.C.’s growing dependence on imported electricity. It’s mindboggling that we’re actually having to import electricity in a province as rich in untapped renewable energy resources as B.C. is. Talk about taking coal to Newcastle. And I mean that literally because much of the electricity we’re importing comes from coal. If people in this province can make one collective New Year’s resolution, I hope it will be for B.C. to become electricity self-sufficient in 2011, and an exporter of electricity rather than an importer.

New Year’s wishes

We all require some boundaries in our lives In the weeks before Christmas we were bombarded with articles telling us how to survive the excesses of the holidays by setting limits on what we would eat and drink. I won’t be surprised if similar limits appear in recommendations for making New Year’s resolutions. We all know what limits are, don’t we? And we can discover a lot about who we are by the limits we set for ourselves and others. In a way, our limit setting defines us: how we control our behaviour, our relationships, and our spending and buying will largely

vote we are made aware of city limits, local, provincial and federal electoral boundaries. We fight against restraints placed on services and activities that are important to us, especially health, sports, and education but, at the same time, we argue about the curbs we want governments to put on spending and on the taxes we are required to pay. We also come face to face with the limits nature places on us in height and fitness and intelligence. Some of us find ourselves with more restrictions than others as we struggle to

live so-called normal lives. Some limits or barriers are seen as challenges. The Olympic Games and most major athletic events are designed to attempt to break through them. One of the definitions of a limit is: The farthest edge or boundary, where something ends or must end. Skiers may know this, but the adventurous and fearless among them will test those edges and boundaries. In earlier times we were limited by how far we could walk or run and those limits often became the defining characteris-

Senior boys smash Seaquam The senior boys Pitt Meadows basketball team returned from Hawaii on Dec. 23 and had a short break for Christmas before facing Seaquam Secondary from North Delta on Dec. 28.

Two Maple Ridge graduates and sisters have faced each other in the pool for a water polo match only once before, but considering they both play competitive water polo for two American universities, they could meet again before the season is over. However, Kelsey and Allison Campbell do not let it faze them. “You’re aware of it, but you try not to let it affect you,” said Kelsey, 21. “While you’re in the game you’re focused on what’s going on,” added Allison, 19. The sisters are very close and although they may joke about whose team is better in the water, they are not serious. “We both want the other to do well,” said Kelsey. Both agreed that it was probably harder for their mom Robyn to watch them play each other. “She gets a bit stressed,” laughed Kelsey. They both competed with the Haney Neptunes and graduated from Maple Ridge Secondary

Kelsey is majoring in accounting and finance and already has a job offer in Boston with PricewaterhouseCoopers starting next September. Allison is majoring in kinesiology and is pre-med and wants to become a doctor. Both love the game of water polo for its team aspect. “It [also] appeals to a lot of

Kelsey has played for Indiana since 2006. Olympic medal in their future, they both want to continue to play water polo while exploring other aspects of their lives. As this is her last year in school, Kelsey wants to play in the NCAA Championships. When asked about balancing playing polo and studying, she said “It’s like having a full-time job on top of being a full-time student.” The sport has taught both girls excellent time-management skills, however, and that is something they can take out of the water and into their professional working careers.

The Caring Place Ministries

2010 was a significant year for The Salvation Army in Maple Ridge. The Caring Place saw an increase in the demand for services from a hot meal to a bed for the night; increases were seen in all aspects of our ministry. The demand for advocacy services has also increased and we continue to help connect people to the various services in the community to meet their needs. These people are those who live in the community and who are at risk of becoming homeless. Our Community Advocate, Connie McGonigal, works with families and singles who need help navigating the system. Often, the Salvation Army is the first place people turn when they need someone to help them.

Our Community Meal Program continues to serve over 300 people, including families, each month. People can come to have a meal any day of the week and they will find a caring and warm reception here by our staff and volunteers. Meals are served three times a day, seven days a week by our wonderful kitchen staff. The demand for this program continues to increase each year. This fall we saw some months when we served over 10,000 meals. This is a significant increase in demand for our services and it has been steadily climbing for several years. When you have no where to turn and have no place to call home, you can always turn to The Salvation Army. Here at The Caring Place our Emergency Shelter, funded by BC Housing, has been busy providing a warm pace to sleep for men, women and children for seven years now. Our Cold Wet Weather mat program has been providing a place to sleep during the winter for over 10 years now. We continue to respond to the growing need in our community for this service. Our advocates work hard to help people find their way back to stability making referrals for housing, addictions recovery and treatment programs and mental health assistance. We also are pleased at the success we see every day in our Genesis program. Many of our residents suffer from addictions and mental health issues. The Genesis program allows them to stay up to three years while they work to bring their lives into focus and continue to heal and recover. Many have found life again through our program and have gone on to live successful lives in the community. All of this is why we are so thankful to all of those people in our community who help to support us. Without your continued support we would not be able to offer these wonderful and necessary programs to our community. So, we thank you for everything you do for us each year. THANK YOU FOR HELPING OTHERS FIND LIFE AGAIN!

Thank you to all our Christmas Kettle Volunteers! You helped us raise $68,000! You are just awesome! You stood in the rain and cold saying Merry Christmas and God Bless You, you played guitar, you played tuba’s and trumpets and sang Christmas Carols – all TO HELP OTHERS! May God Bless you for all you have done for others.

YOU ARE TRULY A BLESSING! Thank You Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows!

We would like to thank the following groups and businesses for their continued support throughout the year and at Christmas time. We could not survive without their in kind gift support and financial contributions. There are many more that help in various ways, giving of their time and bringing in toiletries and small things on a regular basis and we appreciate all the different ways in which you light up the lives of those less fortunate. (We apologize if the name of your group or company should be here, there were so many who gave so generously!)

STRESS & ANXIETY Lower Seasonal Affective Disorder

By Dr. C. Hammoud, M.H., Ph.D.

! Recommended for its calming relief from chronic stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue, lack of motivation, inadequate feelings, compulsive disorders, eating disorders.!Helps to restore adrenal balance, mental well being. True evidence (Skeptics can call these people): ! For about 3 years I was stressed out. After starting #66 I’ m fine. I don’t get headaches anymore caused by stress. I’m more effective at work. I’m amazed. It changed my life around. Gerasimos Kallimikos, 25, Astoria, NY ! At times was completely non-functional. After taking 2 capsules within 1 hour “the fog had lifted”. I take some daily and had no relapse for 4 months. Maureen Lavallie, 67, Red Deer, AB ! No sedatives needed anymore. After taking #66 I felt a calm sense of being not #66 sedated as before but full of energy and able to cope balancing my many jobs, children, household and going to school. Highly recommended! Diane Lovato, 54, Norwalk, CA !I have tried other calming products. for 10 years. Bell #66 is the best. OwenA. Miller, 49, Rossiter, PA !Read the Bell website for many more testimonials and other important information.

Prevent COLDS & FLUS

The only cold medicine with a money-back guarantee. Four medical doctors that wrote in their book SHARK LIVER OIL that you can prevent colds and flus. Dr. Hubert wrote since his own high-school age children took shark liver oil they have no more colds. Dr. Haimes’s grandchildren have been taking shark liver oil for 6 months and he writes they have no more infection of any kind. Read on the Bell website: “I had 3-4 flus every winter. None #51 last 5 years.” “Amazing! All of us have no more colds.” “No more asthma, no puffer, no cold, no flus, changed my life”. In North America this is a by-product from the restaurant industry. No sharks are caught for their liver or their cartilage.

Bell products are available in 8,000 health food stores and pharmacies across Canada and USA. Store locations on the Bell website:

Store inquiries are welcome.

Blood Pressure

If it does not work for you we refund your money. On our website you will find over 50 testimonials with full names and towns from all over USA and Canada. Most of them have listed phone numbers and are happy to talk about the relief they had. No money was paid for testimonials.

#26

WRIST PAIN

Bell Carpal Tunnel Syndrome #30 gave quick relief within an hour. I was hand milking cows and began having weakness, numbness and pain shooting up my arms. Pain increased at night. My doctor suggested surgery as the only option. Not true! The pain and numbness are all gone after taking #30. I can do now whatever activity I want. Marjorie Wilson, 55, Dubuc, SK ! I’m a car mechanic. Holding tools was getting increasingly difficult because of wrist and tendon pain. After 2 weeks on #30 I’m fully productive #30 again. Cancelled scheduled surgery. William Marrero, 56, Miami, FL ! I was wearing wrist braces. A woman saw it and told me she had relief right away with #30. I got some same day. It worked for me as well. Thanks a million. Diane Frank, 49, North Battleford, SK ! I’m a nurse and work with my hands all day. I experienced increasing pain in my hands and fingers. Surgery was the only option I was told. My husband found #30 for me. I have no more pain or inflammation since. You have a life long customer. Nina Wallace, 52, Dacula, GA

ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some #1 examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Most importantly, ask questions and ask to handle the knives to ensure they offer a comfortable companionship with your unique hand. If a retail store is not informative about their products and will not allow you to handle them, then take your business to one that will.

I have always said that one of my favourite things about being a chef is that I get to play with knives. Although this may sound very adventurous in a James Bond fashion, knife skills and proper/safe cutting practices are a very serious subject in the kitchen. With some basic knowledge, you can start to overcome any cutting intimidation you may have. In this column, I will focus on the tools themselves — knives. This will be the first of three instalments on cutting. My next column will focus on cutting boards, and the third column will focus on cutting techniques. There are many choices when trying to decide which knives will adorn the collection of cutting tools in your kitchen. The marketplace is saturated with everything from mailorder deals to high-end specialties. First and foremost, I have to stress that one usually gets what one pays for. Before you reach for your credit card when you see the full collection of ginsu knives for only $19.99 on TV, think about it realistically. How well are these knives manufactured? Once the twenty dollars is divided between the TV air-time costs, the production of the commercial, and any middle-men that may be in between (such as marketers, etc.), how much is actually going toward the manufacturing of these knives? Remember, from this amount, a profit must be made as well. If you are looking to start a good quality knife collection, you should purchase knives that are made from high-carbon stainless steel. The high-carbon content in stainless steel is what ensures the steel is strong. This is very important for keeping a sharp edge. Any knife can be made from stainless steel, but unless it is has a high carbon content as well, it will lose its sharpness very quickly in comparison. Start with a standard “chef’s” knife. Other than for bread cutting, this is the most versatile knife one can have in the kitchen, and can be used for almost any application. It offers a rounded top

Obituaries

Sherry Lynn Marie THORKELSON (nee Gaudette)

30.06.1957 – 20.12.2010 The family of Sherry Thorkelson is saddened to announce her sudden and tragic death as a result of a car accident near Yale, BC on Highway 1 while en route to Prince Rupert to spend Christmas with family and friends. Sherry is survived by her much loved daughter Julie – the Light of her Life. She also leaves behind her parents, Edith and Lucien Gaudette (Prince Rupert BC); brother Darryl (Heather), nephews Travis and Douglas (Mission, BC); brother Rick (Nancy), and nephew Joshua (Maple Ridge, BC); sister Beverly (Flora), nephew Benjamin, niece Jillian (Tristan) and their son Jeremy, niece Kirstin (Josh) and their children Peter and Amy (all of Prince Rupert, BC), nephew and Godson Robert (Laura) and their son Nicholas (Houston, BC); sister Lisa (Gordie), niece Renee and her son Brodie (all of Courtenay, BC). Sherry is also survived by her dear sister-in-law Joy (Ken), nephews Cai and Wynn (Prince Rupert, BC) and by Julie’s dad, Derek (Pitt Meadow, BC). Also mourning her loss are numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins (especially her cousin Shelley) and many, many dear friends. Sherry loved life, loved people and was always happy and upbeat. Sherry was a collector of friends. She always made time for her friends and, as a result, they all felt special. She was extremely thoughtful and kind to all. Above all else, Sherry was a loving and utterly devoted mother. Julie was the centre of her universe. We know she will continue her vigilant watch over Julie from heaven. Sherry will be deeply mourned by her family and friends and sorely missed forever. Rest in peace, dear Sherry. A Celebration of Sherry’s Life will take place on January 15, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall, 12460 Harris Road, Pitt Meadows, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may go to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.

Just wanted to thank Team Diverse, and the outstanding installers working with Diverse Flooring. Right from start to finish we were impressed with the professional, courteous manner of everyone on your team. We were called each day to confirm the time the installers would arrive and were continually called to make sure we were happy and if there was anything you could do for us. The end results are fantastic; we love all our new flooring and would highly recommend Diverse Flooring! Enthusiastically
