Haney Place Mall

Thrifty Foods becomes new anchor

The downtown shopping centre gets new entrances and facade as the mall prepares for a new tenant. by Maria Rantanen

The happy face on Thrifty Foods logo reflected how Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin was feeling Monday. He was “happy” indeed, when the announcement was finally confirmed that Thrifty’s is opening a store at Haney Place Mall in 2012, after improvements are made to the exterior of the mall. “Since Safeway left, there was

a void in that mall,” Daykin said. “It’s good news for downtown – it’s another welcome addition.” The agreement Thrifty’s made with Haney Place owners is that the mall itself will undergo “signficant upgrades” to the exterior, its entrances, and the parking area before the new grocery store opens. The former Esso station and car wash are also part of the property, and these will be integrated into the new shopping centre, said Chris Sherry, one of the owners of Narland Properties – which owns the mall. The new grocery store will be 35,000 square feet and will be located where the Haney Place Market & Antique Mall currently

exists – the former Safeway site. This will be Thrifty Foods’ “Bringing a retailer of this eighth location in the Lower calibre to Maple Ridge is a huge Mainland. win for the dowtown core,” said Ruth Paré, owner of the Sherry. antique mall, said she has been He added that paying rent the mall will take month month “Bringing a retailer for the to advantage of the last of this calibre to town core inceneight years, and tive program. said been she’s Maple Ridge is a The next phase heard rumours huge win for the is to start working about Thrifty’s with an architect coming to the downtown core.” through the design mall for many Chris Sherry process, Sherry of those years. explained.

The antique store is used by a lot of movie and television companies for props, and they’ve told her they don’t know where they’ll get their props, if she closes. Paré rents 24 booths in the antique mall and has one fulltime and one part-time employee. Target has bought the Zellers chain and Sherry said Narland is in discussions with that company about whether Target will replace Zellers or not – but he said he is optimistic. The District of Maple Ridge has recently bought 12 residential properties just east of the new Thrift location, which they hope will be developed into a high-density retail-housing mix.

Chair pushes local bargaining with union Negotiation at the local level would strengthen democracy, said school board chair.

by Maria Rantanen

The topic of bargaining parts of the local teachers’ contract will be under consideration by the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows board of education this week. Board chair Ken Clarkson is recommending the board support an expansion of local bargaining “in principle” to make sure local issues get addressed locally. But, he noted, wages and benefits would stay at the provincial level. The last three teacher contracts have been drawn up at the provincial level, but Clarkson said the

irony is that no one really knows if provincial bargaining works because each time a contract has had to be imposed. Clarkson said for him, when local people bargain for local issues, it strengthens communities and democracy. “The trouble with simplicity is just that and democracy is complex,” he said. Clarkson brought up the example of the local Bill 33 committee, something that exists only in School District 42 The committee, which deals with any class size and composition issues that arise throughout the school year, works because the board of education has allocated money for the committee and the right people are in place to continue that committee.

A pile of jerseys used by Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows minor hockey players will soon travel across the globe to be used in Canada’s archrival hockey country of Russia. School board trustee Dave Rempel left on Sunday for Russia to see how the Meadow Ridge Rotary Club can best help children in orphanages and young teenaged boys in reform school. Before he left, David Riddell, who is involved with the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association and is secretary of Meadow Ridge Rotary, told him the association had about 200 jerseys they planned to get rid of, and they were wondering if the club could donate them to aspiring hockey players in Russia. While the Rotary Club is donating money for things like a tractor, it’s also important to offer gym equipment and sports opportunities, Rempel said. “Those are all necessary for building up young men – in rehabilitating them,” he added. Hockey Canada used to have a program where old jerseys were sent to places like Russia and Chile. But the program was discontinued, meaning the old RMMHA jerseys were bound for the landfill. Rempel’s trip will take him from Vancouver to Beijing to Tashkent to Moscow to Novosibirsk to Valdivostok to Beijing and then back to Vancouver, and he estimates about 43 hours of travelling, not to mention 15 hours of waiting in Beijing at both ends of the trip – “life in the fast lane,” he said. “What you gotta do, when you gotta do it, you got no options,” he added.

Multi-family homes lacking

Colliers International claims Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are losing ground to areas like Abbotsford and Langley.

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have been given a red light by Colliers International warning potential multi-family investors that the market is sluggish. The Colliers report gives neighbourhoods a green, yellow or red light indicating whether there is room for more development. Four areas were coded goahead green, six were a cautious yellow and only one, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows got a red light. “Nearly eighteen months after the completion of the Golden Ears Bridge, demand for multi-family product remains sluggish with the exception of townhome product priced appropriately below the single family market,” Colliers wrote of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. “The development landscape in this area appears to be losing ground to areas to the southeast, in particular Abbotsford and Langley.” The report by Colliers on new multi-family sales was released last week. The report, done by Urban Analytics Inc. looked at multi-family residential development from West Vancouver to Aldergrove. The method of collecting information was done largely by personal visits to each project that was on the market. The report notes that there are 400 to 500 units planned for the north edge of Meadow Gardens Golf Course, 338 units at Cedar Downs in the centre of Pitt Meadows, and the final

It is often a thankless job, but dedicated members of the Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue (SAR) team logged more than 2,000 hours of volunteer time in 2010. Team manager Rick Laing gave a presentation to council last Tuesday night about the team’s efforts, and said they have just taken on seven new recruits who have are beginning their one-year probationary period. “We average about 30 calls per year,” Laing said, and these include missing people, missing boaters, and injured people. SAR can be called upon from the fire department, police, and ambulance service, and they can also be called out to help other search and rescue teams – if they need assistance in their area. The team also provided more than 120 hours of education last year, going into schools and teaching the public about how to be safe and take care of themselves, Laing said.

Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue team can be called out to search on land, on the water, or in the air. They have just recruited seven new team members, and recruit about every two years. “I guess education must be a part of this, because people still go off and get lost,” said Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean. “How do we educate people to not take those risks?” he asked. Laing answered. He believes people will continue to take risks, no matter what.

“With the growing population and the growing recreational pursuits. you’ll still see these types of events happening,” Laing said. “We do it because we enjoy helping out,” he said. “And we do get to play with some really cool toys,” Laing added, prompting laughter from council.

Local Big Brothers suspended Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows’ Big Brothers Big Sisters will cease operations next month. by Amy Judd

Due to economic hardship and government funding cuts, Big Brothers Big Sisters will no longer be able to operate in this community after March 14. Speaking about how their need has been greater than ever with the economic hard times, Shirley Wilson, executive director for BBBS in the Upper Fraser Valley said “the last ones who get hit, when their increased need goes up gets hit.”

Wilson claims a program has existed in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for about 40 years, and it’s a difficult decision to close the chapter. “We are very, very cognizant of the need to contact those folks impacted directly,” Wilson said. There are about 26 families in the region that will be affected by the decision. But, Wilson elaborated that for every match made, there will be at least three people affected, and most likely, many more. “We are very aware of the impact that this is going to have,” she said. Both BBBS Upper Fraser Valley and BBBS Abbotsford Mission Ridge Meadows have been working together since 2010 by creatively sharing resources and collaborating across boundaries to try and deal with the

increased economic uncertainty. The two boards have now chosen to align efforts and have undertaken a joint strategic plan, which involves closing the local chapter. “It is with regret that we cannot continue to provide mentoring services to the Ridge Meadows area,” said president Edwin Palsma. “What we have learned over the past year is that many agencies across the country are experiencing similar challenges and that really tough decisions have to be made.” “This has been a difficult decision,” said Wilson. “And we want to hear from the community.” Those with comments can contact her at or David Sheach, at david.

Waste management

Garbage no place for scraps Ridge suggested as composting site. by Maria Rantanen and Kelly Sinoski Postmedia Network, Inc.

By the end of next year, anyone in a house in Metro Vancouver will have their kitchen scraps banned from the trash. That means everything from apple cores to chicken bones, bread crusts, eggshells, coffee grounds, tea bags, paper towels and pizza boxes must be in your green bin instead of the garbage can. Kim Day, executive director of Ridge Meadows Recycling Society, said she’s actively trying to figure out how and where a drop-off facility for kitchen waste will be located. Currently, the only place to take kitchen

scraps is the Fraser Richmond Biocycle, two hours away. “If they’re going to ban (kitchen scraps), there have to be some options,” Day said. The first step is to get a transfer station in the east Fraser Valley area. But a longer term plan would be for a local composting facility and “Maple Ridge would be a handy location,” Day said. Port Coquitlam, which started its kitchen scraps program in 2007, has been followed by Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Port Moody, Richmond and Vancouver, which signed on last year. Once the plans are in place, most Metro Vancouver cities will reduce garbage collection to every two weeks and pick up the organics weekly.

On Feb. 23, 1995, Bill Wilson was filling his water bottle from the creek just south of the Lougheed Highway, about 800 metres east of the Ruskin bridge, when he found a partial skull with an attached vertebra. Sixteen years later, the woman, who is genetically linked to bones recovered at Robert Pickton’s farm in August 2002, still has no name. “We believe someone out there knows who Jane Doe is and can help solve this mystery”, said Project Evenhanded RCMP Sgt. Dan Almas.

Maple Ridge artist Kjaer Neletia has given up clay for clothing, and is hosting her first fashion event, to show off her new wares, at Monk McQueens restaurant in Vancouver on March 6, starting at noon. Jean Konda-Witte Postmedia Network Inc.


From canvas to fashion A Maple Ridge artist creates original couture clothing line. by Jean Konda-Witte Postmedia Network Inc.

Local artist and teacher, Kjaer Neletia Pedersen recently traded in her charcoal and paints for a sewing machine and has launched her own fashion design label. Kjaer, who lived in Abbotsford and Mission before moving to Maple Ridge to become an artist in residence, owned her own clay studio and sold her work to galleries and private collections around the world. About a year ago, she decided to change focus, bought a sewing machine and began creating K.O. (which stands for Kjaer Originals), or as she describes it, wearable art for every body. “Everything is one of a kind. I’m having so much fun creating them,” she said of her colourful garments designed to fit and

flatter every type of body. “I saw a need in fashion to take a different approach and I wanted to celebrate a woman’s form by playing with shapes and angles and the drape of the fabric so that any woman’s body can look even more beautiful,” Neletia said. Her clothing line flatters all women and is also the perfect solution to carefree dressing; it’s the ‘throw on and go’ approach. She comes by her fashion sense naturally. Her father was a master tailor trained in Denmark, and mother a seamstress. “I attribute my creative ability to watching my dad, being an artist, and I am also quite mathematical. I have never even thought of using a pattern… I allow the fabric to dictate the clothing designs so that colours and textures become form.” Kjaer sells her designs locally at UnCommon Thredz in downtown Mission and is now gearing up for her very first fashion show next month in Vancouver.

Our View

Spare thought for children Here’s a thought experiment we’d like to put before the provincial government: let’s imagine a world in which British Columbia continues to be “the best place on earth.” Let’s imagine a world in which every child in the province has a fighting chance to achieve his or her full potential, a chance to be the best he or she can possibly be, a chance to be a productive and positive influence on the social fabric. Let’s imagine a world in which provincial leaders understand the value of funding organizations that work to provide such opportunities to children at most risk of missing the mark. OK. That last one is a bit of a stretch for our thought experiment, especially in a community where just such an organization – Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Big Brothers Big Sisters, which has been effectively serving the community and its young people for four decades – is being forced to close for lack of funding. But before we continue our thought experiment, let’s take a moment to reflect that the funding that has been cut by the provincial government used to come from a pool of money that was created specifically to provide for organizations like BBBS – money raised through gambling and lotteries, and which was to go back into communities to help mitigate the dubious social qualities of such fundraising activities. It was supposed to be a sort of “giveand-take” source of funding. Now it’s just “take.” And the worst of it is that it’s not just communities that pay the price as those funds get steered into general tax revenues, it’s children who pay, and especially children at risk. Let’s continue our thought experiment now, shall we? Soon B.C. will have a new premier. And if he or she still can’t get it right, let’s imagine that the opposition will soon have a brand new leader, too. Surely, somewhere in that mix we can imagine a leader who can care of our children, the leaders of our future – indeed, our very future itself. – B.G.

What stores will come? Dear editor,

I am submitting this in response to yet another [Council made ‘right’ decision, Feb. 15, TIMES] article sent in by Leslie Sofarelli and members of Residents for Smart Shopping. First of all, Ms. Sofarelli et al have not been asked what type of shopping they prefer and what retail stores they spend


Many with quota don’t actually fish

Dear editor,

The recent story about halibut allocation [Halibut fishing season still on hold, Feb. 15, TIMES] was interesting but glossed over one important point: More than half of the 436 people who own commercial halibut quota don’t actually fish for a living. Instead, they lease out their quota to others each year and collect royalty cheques that rightfully belong to the people of Canada. Recreational anglers have no desire to take fish away from hardworking commercial fisher who support their families. But being handed a shortened season and reduced bag limits so that “slipper skippers” can continue to profit from a public fishery that they do not actually participate in is too much to take.

manmoney at when they make that painstaking trip to Coquitlam. Three examples would be good wouldn’t you say? Does everyone gas up their eight-cylinder vehicle when heading to Walmart at Lougheed Town Centre? After looking into their crystal ball, does it show them what retail businesses would be putting down stakes in Maple Ridge? Middle to higher-end stores like Le Chateau, Coast Mountain Sports, or Future Shop? Or would it be something on the other end of the spectrum like Walmart, Dollarama, or my personal favourite another Tim Hortons? I would like more local shopping as well, don’t get me wrong. But I don’t see many of those middle-end stores going for it. How much shopping do people need to do? A large amount of people enjoy being outdoors while seeing the many different species of life who use such areas for recreational and feeding purposes. And how many members of Residents for Smart Shopping frequent retail businesses such as Walmart and Army & Navy? Well, personally, I’m glad I have a four-cylinder car that has recently been tuned-up. This way I’ll be able to afford gas so that I can still head to Coquitlam when required.

Provincial politics

Gaming cuts devastating families Dear editor,

I am glad the BC Fiberals can be counted on to get their priorities right as usual, talk about morally challenged. Apparently the provincial gaming grant of $230,000 of last year to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters has been reduced to absolutely nothing this year. So Big Brothers and Big Sisters is no more in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and many other Fraser Valley municipalities. It seems a lot of families will be devastated by this funding cut. I am sure there are many good reasons for this cost trimming of essential servi-

ces for needy families and in particular children, after all the government can’t possibly give those poor casino owners $400 million to help them over the bumps and fund social programs as well, and hey many agencies across the country are facing similar cuts and really tough decisions have to be made, and the Fiberals obviously are just the guys to make the hard choices. Way to go Gordo and company, keep up the good work. Wayne Clark, Maple Ridge

Pitt Meadows

Golden Ears Bridge

Opponent needs to realize Tolls must small homes are the future be lowered

Dear editor,

In regards to the zoning vote on Hammond Road, are we putting labels on council members, or are we discussing the four to three vote? To the gentleman’s objection to the vote, I ask where was your opposition before the vote? The sign was on the property for months and that is when you should have expressed your feelings. An old expression pertains, the horse behind the cart theory.

Rear lanes don’t exist in Pitt Meadows, they take up space for housing. Small lots with homes are the future, thus entitling a family to their own land. This generation does not have time for big lots, check out the South Bonson area. In-fill is the future of our town core. Dear sir look to the future, we are now a city, with smaller city lots and still a great agricultural base.

Carole Kubb, Pitt Meadows

Dear editor,

The Golden Ears Bridge is not making enough money on tolls because people find the tolls too expensive. What good is a bridge if no one uses it? Why not decrease the tolls? More people will use the bridge. The increase in volume will ultimately increase the revenue. Low cost, higher volume should make everyone happy.

Pitt Meadows

Seniors centre moves forward

Westbrooke Congregate Housing and Pitt Meadows Seniors Centre have applied for a development permit. by Amy Judd

Councillor Deb Walters wanted to thank staff at the previous council in committee meeting for all their hard work associated with the building of a new seniors centre behind the Family Recreation Centre. “I know this has been a long process and they stuck with it,” said Walters. Council forwarded the authorization of a development permit to council, and that was given final approval at last week’s council meeting.

Harris Park update

will oversee construction on the Youth Action Park, and the driveway and parking area.

Second farm home denied

A McNeil Road blueberry farm wanted approval from council to forward its application to build an additional home on the land to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC). The family has lived on the farm since 1981, but the mother was no longer capable of running the farm herself and her son wanted to build a home on the land that would allow for him and his family, and enable him to work on the farm part-time. However, the land use bylaw allows for a house only for a full-time employee on properties such as this one that are larger than four hectares. While council was sympathetic, they decided not to forward the application to the ALC.

Pitt Meadows will see construction start on the new and improved Harris Road Park Deb Walters Council authorized a route after this year’s Pitt Meadow’s Pitt Meadows councillor network for trucks at last Day, and council adopted the week’s council meeting that plan at last week’s council would restrict traffic on McNeil Road, meeting. Hammond Road, Harris Road – from Bruce McLeod, manager of parks and Lougheed Highway to Airport Way – and open spaces with the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows parks and leisure services, gave the urban part of Ford Road. Trucks with a gross vehicle weight a presentation at council in committee more than 4,600 kg would be required to earlier in January, saying that after the last meeting, an opportunity was given to travel on the designated roads. “It is our intention in the early stages the public to view the plans and provide to make sure people are aware [of the feedback. changes],” said director of operations and As a result they received three email development services Kim Grout. They comments, and will now move forward will be doing this through forward planwith the park plan. ning and putting up signs. This year, parks and leisure services

About 30 volunteers, dancers, performers, wordsmiths and drummers will be coming together Friday, for a celebration of fire. Peter Tam, fresh off his success with the Spirit Wood festival, is producing the show Spirit Fire, which he said is reminiscent of Cirque du Soleil without the aerial acrobatics. “It’s a full production,” he said. It is a smaller cast than Spirit Wood, but Tam said it is just as spectacular, with fire dancers and twirlers, among other elements. “The whole atmosphere has a very powerful sound,” he said, “with drums and fire.” Although fire is exciting, Tam said the elements of dance and music add more drama, and should draw the audience in. “Some skills are involved,” he said,

Spirit Fire dancers, from the back, Sarah Purton, Dana Sorensen, Emily Craig and Genevieve Gardeauner. “but it contains a lot of dance elements.” The theme of the Spirit festivals is the fusion of different artistic elements to create something new. With a mix of different styles of music and dance, Tam said “each on its own is not as exciting as when you’re combining

it together.” “Heat is what we need in the middle of February,” he laughed. Other performers include Pamela Sunshine, who is set to put on an interactive kids show Friday afternoon. “She is really something else,” said organizer

Jetty Prins. Residents can also send in a poem before the festival, that has never been read or performed, and there will be readings and a contest held during the night. The event will go from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and is free to attend. It will be held at centre court in Haney Place Mall and in Memorial Peace Park. For more information, contact

local economy.With everything we have going for us and with the Golden Ears as our backdrop, the coming years will prove to be a tremendous boom. To aid in the development of our business community, our mandate at the Chamber of Commerce is to create an atmosphere where our member companies feel free to ask tough technical questions, learn from experienced mentors and grow their businesses through the services we offer. In order to accomplish this, we have put together a cadre of business experts from many different fields who may act as resources, educators or who will offer up their experience over a cup of coffee. No business owner is an expert in all fields, but together we can build our communities and companies into international powerhouses. We need only work together and benefit from the experience of others. We all live in the greatest place in the lower mainland and Canada.It is our responsibility to build these communities intelligently and responsibly. Knowing our organization’s mandate the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge Chamber of Commerce will continue to offer local business all the support they need to grow and prosper. Hence, through the shared expertise of members, through educational initiatives and through advocacy when needed, the Chamber of Commerce will always be here to help our member firms whenever and wherever they need it.

MARCH 10, 2011 Women’s AM is a non-porofit organization that provides the opportunity for women to meet on a professional and social basis. The group was founded in 1988 by Michelle Emmerson, Manager of the Chamber of Commerce at the time, and Lois Hourston, the Sales Manager of The News. Since then, Women’s AM has grown in the comunity and meetings and events are well attended.

The Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge Chamber of Commerce is an innovative organization which continues to, “Wow” chambers and municipalities around BC.We have come off a year where we won Chamber of theYear for 2009, we have created new events drawing people to town from all over and we have helped spread the word that Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are the best municipalities to start a business in the lower mainland.The next two years will be even better. Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge has been rated in the top 5 for best investment cities in Canada by the Real Estate Investment Network. The Chamber of Commerce does not take credit for this, as it is our proximity to Vancouver, our bountiful natural beauty, and all the new transportation infrastructure which make us the natural choice for any business looking to relocate. Our region’s balance of work and play is unparalleled anywhere else. Locals have access to multiple lakes for water sports; mountains for hiking, horseback riding and bike riding; as well as the largest concentration of golf courses in BC. Where else can you leave work and have this many choices for relaxation or adventure without leaving town. The board of directors for your local Chamber of Commerce has been working hard setting the stage to put Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge into the limelight. We want to show off the businesses we have locally while attracting new and innovative businesses from around the world. Our proximity to airports, train lines, ports along with easy access to highways and public transportation make us the logical choice for any business. Because we do not want to limit our potential, we have chosen to focus on businesses which cannot be easily sent over seas, businesses which are at the forefront of their industry and those who have the potential to grow, thus generating more jobs for our

Local climbs steps up for clean air Pitt Meadows resident Daisy Pavon will be taking on more than 700 steps this weekend to raise money for the BC Lung Association.

alive and continue to support a cause I know was important to him,” she said. This year Pavon is struggling with a few health concerns of her own, but she is determined to still take part. “My dedication will still be there,” she said. “I’m just not going to do it as strenuously.” “As long as I do my climb,” she added, “because to finish is good enough for me.” Climbers will have to make it to the top of the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel on Feb. 27, and the BC Lung Association expects about 500 people to take part this year. Last year climbers ranged in age from five to 84, with an average climb time of 10 minutes. Participants will be joined once again by the Global BC Morning News Team, including newscaster Steve Darling, traffic reporter Wesla Wong and senior meteorologist, Mark Madryga. All proceeds from the event go toward lung health and air quality-related educational programs, vital medical research, and patient support activities throughout B.C. For more information, visit, or contact the BC Lung Association events team by email at stairclimb@, or by phone at 604731-lung (5874).

Her dad passed away in 2003 from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and she dedicated her first climb to him. “I thought ‘I’m 50, I’ll never be able to do it’,” she said, but she completed the 48 flights in 14 minutes and 41 seconds. Now she is back and has been training since the end of January. She reached 739 steps last week, and will continue doing them each day until about three days before the climb. Pavon also saw this event as the perfect way to get, and stay,

Girls take frustrations to the mats

In a sport dominated by men, some female members of the MRSS wrestling team are showing their fighting strength. by Amy Judd

In a room with no windows, in what was once Mount Crescent Elementary, the MRSS wrestling team practise hard for their upcoming competitions. Coach Bill McCrae fires off instructions to the group, while teaching them new moves and how to safely take down their opponent. With the B.C. High School Wrestling Championships in Abbotsford later this week, the group has been racking up the wins, with many coming from the small number of girls on the team. Candice Owen, 16, Clarissa Morgan, 14, and Payten Smith, 14, all enjoy the intensity of the sport and see it as a way to take out their frustrations. “It requires mental strength and physical strength,” said Owen, who used to figure skate, but quit last year. Morgan, who also practises ballet, said her competitive side thrives on the thrill of the wrestling competitions. “I love to get gold,” she said. “But if I don’t, it’s OK.” Smith has been a strong contender in every meet so far this year, and as a Grade 9 student, she has many years of wrestling at the school ahead of her. “I really like the sound of the ref hitting the mat,” she said smiling, as that often means she has won the match. “It’s not just something anyone can do,” she said, and although the girls enjoy the same activities others their age do, there is no mistaking that they are tough. “By the second round, you’re just like, done,” said Owen. “It’s really a lot of mental stuff.” Smith, who attended a wrestling camp just before Christmas, said she learned a valuable lesson about competing. “You’ve got to keep trying. When you’re down to your last breath, you’ve got to keep trying.” The girls attribute their technique to McCrae, who has been coaching at the school for 21 years.

Candice Owen (left) and Payten Smith faced each other in a practice before heading to Abbotsford. “He pushes you so hard,” Morgan said, “and makes you so much better.” It is also important in this sport to maintain a certain weight to compete in a weight class. Owen and Morgan compete in

("#!0 %4&( 8*2$"&8 + 4: 6! ;,7 !''

the 57 kg class, while Smith is often in the 80 kg + class. The girls on the team stick together, especially at competitions when they say girls on other teams can be unfriendly. “I always look at the other girls

and judge myself,” said Owen. “I can never make friends.” Smith knows many in her weight class, but agreed with Owen, saying the boys tend to be supportive of those on other teams after a match, but it never seems that way for the girls. “They are so catty,” said Morgan. Even when members of the other team and the coaches try to intimidate them, the girls manage to keep a level head. “If they feel they have to intimidate you then it’s hard to be scared of them,” said Morgan. Smith has won gold medals at the Port Alberni Invitational, and the Upper Fraser Novice games, as well as three major tournaments at Simon Fraser University’s War on the Floor. Morgan also won gold at the Upper Fraser Novice games and the Miri Piri invite in Abbotsford, took silver in the Upper Fraser Valley championships, placed third in Port Alberni, and came sixth at War on the Floor. Owen has won gold at the Miri Piri invite, and the Upper Fraser Valley Championships.

Seniors fight to the finish The Maple Ridge Ramblers senior boys AAA team have struggled with only seven players this year. by Amy Judd

It’s been a season of ups and downs for the Ramblers senior boys, but coach Ken Dockendorf said they accomplished a big goal last Wednesday when they beat Rick Hansen Secondary to qualify for the league tournament and the Fraser Valley Championships. Unfortunately, they did not have the same success on Thursday against the Walnut Grove Gators. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it before in my 41 years of coaching,” said Dockendorf. The Ramblers lost to the Gators, 94-45, and he described it as one of the worse losses the team has ever had. “Right from the get go [the Gators] just didn’t miss,” he said. “That’s the most points we’ve given up

in a game in five years.” Last Friday, the boys played Abbotsford Collegiate and although Dockendorf said it was a good game, the team lost 59-52. They came back on Saturday, however, and played for seventh place, beating Robert Bateman 57-53. “We were down and came back,” said Dockendorf. With only seven players and many injuries, the team has struggled against the odds to come this far, and Dockendorf said it has been difficult to keep the team strong. “We’ve had a number of junior players,” he said, “but it’s not the same level as senior.” He said that with so many club sports and choices available to kids these days, it is hard to get some to commit to the time necessary to play with the senior boys team. “A lot of schools are suffering the same,” he said. This Friday the Ramblers will face Heritage Woods, which Dockendorf said are a real tough team. They have to win to move on.

Flames heading into playoffs The junior B hockey team face the Port Moody Black Panthers.

In what Flames’ fans hope will be an indication of what is to come in the first round of the playoffs, the local team beat the Port Moody Black Panthers 7-5 on home ice last Friday. Danny Brandys, and Christopher (CJ)

Legassic were both named stars of the game for contributing to the high number of goals scored. With just a few short days to rest, the team now face them again in the first round, which began Monday night. They will play at Planet Ice on Wednesday, starting at 8 p.m., and then again on home ice on Friday, starting at 7:30 p.m.
