Former group home residents miss friends

SCHOOLS ❚ Musical Education

Bramble Cottage residents have moved on to other good homes, but some still miss their old living arrangements. by Samantha Shirley-Urano editorial@mrtimes.com

Webster’s Corners Grade 7 students Mason Hicks, Teigra Stuart, Madison Browne and Caleb Wiebe show their old instruments. The school recently received a $2,400 grant for musical instruments which will help students in their new band program. The music program will be for students in grades six and seven.

Bramble Cottage, an assisted living group home in Maple Ridge, was closed down recently, leaving the five people with developmental disabilities living there to find new homes. Loni Neville, a 29-year-old who lived at the house, is now living with a woman who befriended her years ago. The woman’s 12-year-old daughter and mother also live in the house. Loni’s mother, Gayle Morrissette, said that although Loni’s current caregiver is very kind and tries to help her, the situation can’t replace what she had at Bramble Cottage. “It’s not the quality or the quantity that she was used to at Bramble,” Morrissette said. “It’s just such a shame they closed that house down. It was such a wonderful place. Everybody there had jobs and they had lots of friends.” At Bramble Cottage Loni lived in the basement with her friend, Stephanie Kleckner, whom she knew before moving into the home. The staff at Bramble Cottage would make sure Loni and Stephanie had rides to appointments, grocery shopping or fun outings, but it’s more difficult to do those things now, Morrissette said. She added Loni is good at taking the bus, but she worries about her walking when it gets cold this winter. Loni has a degenerative bone disease in her feet and ankles, so it’s hard for her to get around. “She knows how to ride the bus, but when it gets cold, and it is hard for her to walk, I worry about her trudging around in the snow and ice,” Morrissette said. “If she falls down, she’s well over 200 pounds, it takes somebody pretty strong to get her back up on her feet.” Morrissette is grateful, however, for Loni’s caregiver welcoming her into her home. When the residents found out Bramble Cottage was closing, Morrissette said they only had 60 days to find new housing. The caregiver made accommodations for Loni, having rails installed on the bathtub so Loni could get in and out safely.

“She’s a great lady and she’s doing everything she can for Loni, but it’s just not the same as having two or three staff, and means to go to the hospital if she has to go,” Morrissette said. Morrissette said Bramble Cottage was the only group home in the area that was closed down. Other residents of the home moved to group homes where there was space available. Stephanie Kleckner was the only resident besides Loni who moved in with a family by herself. She is living in a basement suite with a caregiver, who looks after another person in her home who isn’t as self-sufficient as Stephanie. Carol Kleckner, Stephanie’s mother, said she is lonely without her friends at Bramble Cottage. “The caregiver has done a lot in regards to making Stephanie feel comfortable and the whole thing, but Stephanie is just very lonely,” Kleckner said. “She doesn’t have all those people around and the activities they had there.” Kleckner said Stephanie and the girls in the house would spend much of their time together. “The girls used to get together and they’d do their hair and their nails, but that doesn’t happen anymore,” she said. “None of those types of socialization happen at all. They don’t prohibit Stephanie from having guests over, but she relied so much on the people from in the house and it’s not always easy to have the people come over to Stephanie’s house now.” Kleckner said the closest Bramble Cottage resident lives about 30 blocks away from Stephanie in Maple Ridge. “We’re trying to adapt,” Kleckner said. “We’re trying to work towards getting things better. I’ve had a couple meetings with the caregiver and the staff from the Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living and they’re doing their best, but under the circumstances it’s not an ideal situation for Stephanie.” Kleckner and her husband are looking for alternatives for Stephanie. She said they might resort to moving her closer to their home in Chilliwack, where they can take care of her more themselves.

CONSTRUCTION ❚ Method in the Madness

Suspicious man in van Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a report of a man who told a young woman to get into his van last Wednesday. On Oct. 6, at approximately 6:30 p.m. an old, light green Volkswagen van pulled up beside a woman who was jogging on Harris Road in Pitt Meadows and instructed her to get into the van. The woman turned and jogged in the opposite direction, and saw the van stop beside an older man before driving off. The van was last seen heading south on Harris Road. The jogger was not injured and the man did not get out of the van. The van’s driver was described as having dark hair.

Ridge woman beaten at Stave Lake An 18-year-old Maple Ridge woman suffered head injuries and a concussion when she was assaulted by a stranger on Oct. 2 at Stave Lake in Mission. The woman was attacked by another female who was unknown to her at about 9 p.m. The suspect confronted the victim in a parking lot and punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground. The two women fought while up to 12 bystanders attempted to remove the suspect, said RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson. As the victim tried to walk away, her attacker struck her in the back of the head with a beer bottle. The suspect then drove away in what may be a black 2002 two-door Pontiac Sunfire with extensive damage to the left front wheel well. The victim suffered a concussion, injuries to her face and left shoulder and internal bleeding to her eye. The suspect is described as Caucasian female, 18 to 20 years old, about 5’10” and 185 lbs with twotone brown and blond hair. Call the Mission RCMP at 8267161 or Ridge Meadows RCMP at 463-6251, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 any time.

The end is in sight for construction on Lougheed Highway around 223 and 224 Street, said Frank Quinn, general manager of public works for Maple Ridge. “We should be substantially complete in about a week-and-a-half,” he said on Friday. He added the project, which includes widening sidewalks, constructing parking spots and installing flower beds and streetlights should look great when complete. Troy Landreville/TIMES

Schools

Webster’s Corners gets a musical boost by Samantha Shirley-Urano editorial@mrtimes.com

Webster’s Corners Elementary, a school that faced the possibility of closure last year, has been showing its resiliency and spirit this year through its students, parents, staff and new administration. The small school used to be annexed to Blue Mountain Elementary, but this year it became independent and Tanya Dailey, the past Riverside principal, was brought to Webster’s Corners. Dailey has been getting the parents and students involved since the beginning of the school year, with a pancake breakfast, social responsibility week and monthly slideshows to show the children what they have accomplished and the fun they’ve had. Webster’s Corners has also seen the addition of a music program this year, thanks to grants for musical instruments. On Monday, Oct. 4, Webster’s Corners received a $2,400 grant from the S’Cool Life Fund, a Canadian organization that funds D.R.E.A.M.S. – Drama, Recreation, ExtraCurricular, Arts, Music, or Sports needs at public elementary schools

I think that the kids are very appreciative.” Webster’s Corners’ enrolment was as low as about 120 in past years, but this year there are 153 students – up 18 from last year. The school also added a division two weeks into this school year, going from having seven to eight classes. “You never like to reshuffle after the second week of school, but it was an exciting reshuffle,” Dailey said. “The parents fought so hard to keep the school from closure. Now we’ve added another division, that’s like a celebration.” Dailey has been visiting all the classes to get the students’ input on what they think makes the best school, which factors into the school’s code of conduct. Dailey said she is working to have a cohesive, excited school spirit, and to have an effective place of learning. “I think they’re very eager and very keen,” she said. “You walk by the classrooms and they’re engaged. I think that Webster’s Corners has the opportunity to shine. There were sad thoughts of it closing, now let’s celebrate it not closing and the wonderful things that are happening.”

Lawsuit planned by dead girl’s mom Laura Coward’s death in custody has haunted her mother. by Jeremy Shepherd editorial@mrtimes.com

It’s been more than two years since her daughter died in police custody, but Sharleen Guilbault said she is planning a lawsuit against the RCMP over the lack of care she says her daughter received. On Feb. 4, 2008, three days after being arrested on outstanding warrants for breach of probation and assault, Laura Coward, 26, died in a cell in the Chilliwack Community Policing Office. According to RCMP Supt. Keith Robinson, the on-duty guard witnessed Coward vomiting 11 times between 1:36 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. No medical attention was sought. After being found unresponsive in her cell, Coward was pronounced dead at 9:18 a.m. that morning. Coward became an intravenous drug user after her father died, according to Guilbault, and was trying to stop using drugs and turn her life around at the time of her death. Guilbault said she is planning the lawsuit to ensure police officers and guards keep a stricter watch over prisoners. She said she would also sue over wages she claims to have lost while depression kept her from working. Guilbault used to be employed as a youth worker, but said she couldn’t continue after her daughter died. She said she’s now working as a cleaner at Ridge Meadows Hospital and makes approximately $30,000 less per year than she made as a youth worker. “There’s no money in the world that could replace my daughter,” she said. Guilbault said she maxed out her credit cards and needed to re-mortgage her house to pay her bills. She said the move cost her approximately $100,000 in home equity. A Coroner’s Inquest into Coward’s death took place in February 2009. The

inquest jury made several recommendations, including providing immediate medical assessments for suspected drug users when they’re locked in a cell. Guilbault maintains that the blame for Coward’s death was spread too evenly, and she feels that the real guilt resided with the officer in charge. “They’re trying to squirm their way out of it,” she said. Guilbault said she also wanted a public apology, on the grounds the police didn’t do their duty. “There’s flaws in their system and they need to fix it,” she said. “They say they’re doing all the recommendations. I hope that stays in place and they keep doing them.” As a result of Coward’s death, a number of changes were instituted to ensure prisoners are kept as safe

as possible, according to a letter written by Robinson in December 2009. The changes include more rigorous record-keeping, more thorough examinations of prisoners, and less clerical work for guards so they can focus solely on monitoring prisoners, as well as overlapping shifts so prisoners aren’t neglected during the busiest times of the day. All of those practices have since been instituted, according to Robinson. Responding to a complaint filed by the B.C. Civil Liberties Union, Robinson acknowledged RCMP procedures were not entirely followed and medical care should have been provided for Coward, even if she didn’t want it.

Coward was treated at Chilliwack General Hospital for a staph infection on Feb. 1, the evening she was arrested. The physician who examined her declared she was “fit to be incarcerated,” according to Robinson’s letter. There was no notation in the prisoner log to verify Coward was certified “fit for incarceration,” nor was the name of the physician recorded, according to Robinson. A failure to note the name of the examining physician is a violation of RCMP protocol. The physician also requested that Coward be returned on Feb. 3 for additional care and to have her bandage changed. Robinson stated there was no documentation to show Coward was taken to the hospital on Feb. 3. On Feb. 2, according to Robinson’s letter, Sgt. Ken Morris had a conversation with

Coward. She had vomited in her cell, the sergeant said, but she had asked him not to get her any medical assistance. According to the letter, he complied with her request. Due to the number of guards helping to transport prisoners, no one checked on Coward between 8:15 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the morning she died, Robinson maintained in his letter. A prisoner is supposed to be checked every 15 minutes, according to Robinson. Guard Gerry Burke, who was working an overnight shift between 11 p.m. Feb. 3 and 7 a.m. Feb. 4, said he spoke to Coward at least twice about her health. In both instances, he said, she told him she didn’t need medical attention. Those conversations are not documented in the prisoner log, according to Robinson’s letter. A pathologist could not determine the cause of Coward’s death.

Construction

Ridge road improvements 216 Street and 128 Avenue Intersection Improvements 216 Street and 128 Avenue in Maple Ridge is currently a four-way stop intersection. The project will improve the existing intersection with the installation of a traffic signal system and a dedicated right-turn lane, westbound from 216 St. The proposed improvements have been approved in the District’s 2010 Capital Budget and grant funding has been confirmed. An open house was held on April 20. Imperial Paving Ltd. commenced construction the third week of August and the work should be completed within eight weeks, weather permitting. Construction will be Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

240 Street Storm and Sidewalk Installation The District has planned storm sewer and sidewalk installation on 240 Street, north of Dewdney Trunk Road to Latimer Creek. The work includes ditch enclosure and installation of storm sewer, catch basins and construction of an asphalt sidewalk on the east side. An open house was held on June 24. The second and final open house is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 14, from 3 to 8 p.m. at Maple Ridge Municipal Hall (Lobby area at the Dewdney Trunk Road entrance) 11995 Haney Place, Maple Ridge. The detail drawings will be available for viewing.

The Pitt Meadows Arena renovation project is now underway with completion scheduled for spring 2011. Key components of the renovation include installing a new roof and building siding; upgrading and replacing mechanical, electrical, HVAC, ice plant and refrigeration systems; reconfiguring the entrance and

foyer; seismic upgrading and other minor improvements. During construction the arena will remain open and normal day-to-day operations will continue. Brief rink closures may be required at some point to facilitate the construction process. For more info visit pittmeadows.bc.ca.

Current prostitution laws upheld extra month

Federal prostitution laws that were struck down by an Ontario judge last week will be extended another month. When Justice Susan Himel handed down her decision Sept. 28, she also delayed her order from taking effect for 30 days. Now, the grace period is going to be extended an extra 30 days. Alan Young, the lawyer who argued the case for the winning side, said Friday in a taping of Global News’s Focus Ontario

program that he’s agreed to a Crown request for a longer grace period. “Simply because they look like they’re panicking and in disarray and I feel somewhat sorry for them and I imagine if you’ve had a bad law for 30 years, another 30 days isn’t going to make a huge difference,” Young told Global News. “After that, I put the gloves back on for the fight.” Postmedia News

❚ News Health care

Caregivers experience ‘severe stress’

Maple Ridge residents taking care of family members with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia are experiencing severe stress, new studies show. They are among the more than two million informal caregivers across Canada, a new national survey shows, who are struggling to cope with the impacts of caregiver stress, including depression. According to reports released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), difficulty with memory, understanding and decision-making cause the most severe hardships. Caregivers were three times more frustrated when the senior needing care had Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. The findings come from CIHI research with more than 130,000 seniors. The findings are no surprise, says Dorothy Leclair, a Maple Ridge support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. “Supporting a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia is a challenging responsibility that can feel overwhelming throughout the different stages of the disease,” she explains.

People who care for someone with dementia often talk about feeling guilty, even when others reassure them that they are doing the best they can, adds Christina Foo, also a support and education coordinator for Maple Ridge. “They believe that it is their responsibility to provide all the care, all the time.” One problem caregivers face is social isolation, due to the time they spend helping their loved ones at the expense of maintaining friendships. “An area of caregiving that is frequently overlooked is self-care for caregivers themselves,” Leclair says. “Although it may be difficult for a caregiver to prioritize his/her own needs, it is important to think about personal well-being, too, because it can positively impact the quality of life of both the caregiver and the person they are caring for.” Too much stress could leave family members unable to continue to provide care, which could lead to institutionalization - for the person with dementia and even for the caregiver, adds Foo. To help families coping with the impact of Alzheimer’s disease or

related dementia, the society runs support and information groups, one for family caregivers and the other for persons in the early stages of the disease. For information contact

Leclair, or Foo at 604-2980780 or 604-298-0782, or email dleclair@alzheimerbc. org or cfoo@alzheimerbc. org. For more resources on coping with caregiver stress, visit www.AlzheimerBC.org.

❚ Our View

Families too easily excluded by definition What makes a family? If you ask most Canadians, they picture a mother and a father with young kids. But if you look at how most Canadians live, that concept of family is at least a little exclusionary. A new poll conducted for Postmedia News and Global TV suggests that public perceptions of what makes up a family haven’t caught up with social changes that mean the two-parent, opposite-sex couple raising young kids is no longer the norm. In Canada, couples without children, for example, now outnumber those with children. But less than half of Canadians believe a married or common-law couple without kids should be included in the definition of a family. A similar number consider a samesex married couple and their kids to be a family. Meanwhile, almost one in five Canadian kids lives in a lone-parent household. And yet, just 55 per cent of Canadians polled said they believe a single mother and her children fit the definition of family. And further still, 54 per cent of poll respondents indicated that they consider a single father and his kids to be a family. Here’s something else new: for the first time, there are more unmarried than married people in Canada, and commonlaw families, especially those with kids, are the fastest-growing kind. But poll results show that only 66 per cent of Canadians view common-law couples and their kids as families. While social change can be rapid and it takes time to adjust, single-parent families, same-sex couples, and couples without kids are nothing new. So why do many Canadians persist in seeing such families as something less than the more traditionally accepted mother-and-father-with-children model? Maybe we can’t see past the ads on TV that depict that family as the “right” one. If so, that’s terribly sad, since that narrow view leaves out so many Canadian families.

❚ Mailbag

Schwarz & Co.

Welfare cliches are far from true Editor:

I was sent an e-mail the other day about how much better life was for people on welfare, it was called “JOE LEGAL vs. JOE ILLEGAL.” It has been a fallacy for many years that people on welfare bring in big bucks. I was so frustrated because people pass around e-mails that give a false impression of what life on welfare is like. We need to wake up, we need to be ashamed that we have the highest Child Poverty Rate in Canada. People on income assistance barely have enough to survive and most are requiring welfare through no fault of their own, as was the case with someone I know whose partner left her with their two-year-old son. She had no job, as she stayed at home to be with their child. As well, she had barriers to employment due to developmental disabilities. When she asked for assistance she was told she wouldn’t even be able to apply until she completed a two-week job search, and “it was too bad she had a small child at home, she would have to find someone to watch him while she looked for work.” Once she finished the job search she could apply, it was about a month long process. What was she

supposed to do until then – not their problem. I couldn’t believe we as a province, as a country would treat a single mom like that so I went down to the welfare office myself and was told exactly the same thing. I was also told that no one was allowed to help them out with shelter or food. If welfare happened to come by and saw that they had more groceries than they should, the worth would be “estimated” and the difference would be deducted off their cheque. If we helped with renting a place that cost more than the shelter allowance they would be taken off of income assistance. As a single parent with one child you receive $570 for shelter, and $375.58 for all other expenses – food, clothing, heat, electricity, transportation,phone. If you don’t believe me, feel free to look at the tables on the B.C. government website, www. eia.gov.bc.ca. And if you want to see how easy it is to live on this, take a look through your local paper, find a place to live for the amounts shown. Then try to feed, clothe, transport, heat, provide electricity for your family on the amounts given as well. You won’t be able to find anything. Just try it, put yourself, your kids in their shoes. You go tell the

children they don’t deserve a safe place to live, enough food, clothes, coats, and shoes. Two parents, two kids on welfare; $401.06 for all their expenses, and $570 for shelter. $971.06 to support a family of four. Just where do you think they are going to live for $570 a month? It’s even worse for people on disability. I mean even if you choose to continue to “blame” people on welfare, how about the ones that are disabled? They have jumped through all the hoops and had doctors sign page after page of special forms to “prove” they are disabled. They get a whopping $282.92 for all their expenses, $375 for shelter. Could we treat them any worse? It’s like kicking them when they are down. They are disabled, for goodness sakes, they have enough challenges already. Never mind trying to find a place to live for $375.

There are people in our churches, our schools, our community that cannot afford to put food on their table. I’m sure there are examples of how some people work the system and take advantage. There always is, but it’s not the norm. And the people, kids that are struggling to exist don’t deserve to get painted with the same brush. The whole purpose is to help people get back on their feet, not to feel like they are worthless. Most importantly, these children have the right to a healthy, safe, positive environment. A good reflection of society is how we treat our most vulnerable. How many times do we have to hear that we have the highest child poverty rate in Canada before we start giving a damn.

Nine years of caring at Katie’s Place

Katie’s Place has been taking in cats and kittens for nine years and is inviting the community to a birthday celebration on Oct. 17. Katie’s Place opened in 2001 when a few animal lovers looked after homeless cats in a barn. The first cat they looked after was named Katie. The current facility was completed in September 2008. Over the last nine years, volunteers have rescued approximately 3,000 animals and found homes for 2,000, including many that ended up at the shelter after being judged unfit for adoption. Katie’s Place has housed many cats that had been unapproachable due to aggression or fear, but which eventually became loving and trusting. Volunteer board member Tracey Bon said when a young cat named McAllister came to Katie’s Place they were told he had been aggressive and intimidating at his previous shelter. Bon said he just needed time to settle and a homelike environment to burn off restless energy. Volunteers come daily to clean, feed and tend to the animals’ health. A veterinarian examines each animal on its arrival, and conducts follow-ups as needed. Vets bills at Katie’s Place totalled $79,894 in 2009. Bon said care and love have done miracles with many “hopeless” cases. She said pets respond to love and the

❚ Community Pay it Forward

THSS student to sell her baked goods

A

Thomas Haney student is planning to sell cookies and treats on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Haney Place Mall to raise money for families dealing with medical emergencies. Miranda Tymoschuk has undergone nine surgeries but rather than bemoaning her fate, the Thomas Haney student is trying to make life better for patients at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster with each cookie she bakes and every pop bottle she collects. Over the past two years, Tymoschuk has helped raise more than $1,700 for Pay it Forward, a charity that tries to cushion the financial blow for families in the middle of a medical emergency by taking care of expenses like parking and meals. “They need help to

get their meals and for transportation costs,” she said. “Some people get flown in and all they have is the clothes on their back.” Tymoschuk has a condition called posteromedial bowing, which causes her left tibia to grow at a slower rate than her right tibia. Tymoschuk, who is in the ninth grade, said she was inspired to start helping people about two years ago. She was in the hospital for her fifth surgery and her mother was handling the ancillary costs that came with the eight-day stay. It was during that stay a social worker offered her mother some coupons to ease the costs. Tymoschuk said her goal is to raise at least $5,000 for Pay It Forward.

Paddling

Adaptive paddler ready to take on the world by Samantha Shirley-Urano editorial@mrtimes.com

Although he only started the sport this summer, local adaptive paddler James Telep has been making a splash on the national scene. Telep started kayaking in May with the Pitt Meadows Paddling Club, and has been seeing great success in the five months since, winning a silver medal in the 200-metre sprint at the nationals in Regina in August. Telep broke his back in a snowboarding accident at Hemlock 12 years ago, which left him a paraplegic. He worked at a kayak rental store and paddled before his accident, but he said it was an adjustment when he started kayaking recently. Racing kayaks are very unstable, so Telep has pontoons on the kayak to keep from going under. He also has a special seat that supports his back. “I have gotten such a love of the sport, because it has changed my life dramatically,” Telep said. “Back in May I had carpal tunnel in my hands. At the end of the day my hands hurt so bad that I just felt like I was completely immobilized. Being paralyzed and then my hands gone too, I could barely move. “Back in paddling, my carpal was gone after a

month of paddling. Now it’s gone completely, so for the health benefit alone, it’s so worthwhile for someone with any form of disability to get out there, because why be in the gym when you can be out on the water?” Telep said people with disabilities will benefit from kayaking. “I think kayaking is an amazing sport in that you’re in control of yourself and you’re the only one out there who can push yourself to the level you want to reach,” he said. “When you’re in the water you feel like you’re the same as everyone else, so that’s one thing I really like about it.” Two other men with disabilities who train at Pitt Meadows raced at nationals with Telep – Corey Stewart and Kevin Priebe. Stewart got a bronze medal in the 200 metre and Priebe placed fourth. Telep said because racing competitively for those with disabilities is such a young sport, it’s easier to progress and succeed quickly. “If there’s anyone who misses that competitive aspect of their life, this is the time to get in while it’s still young, because you move up levels exponentially,” he explained. He plans to go to Montreal next June for the Worlds

James Telep, a 32-year-old parapelegic from Maple Ridge, competes in the Bantam Men K1 2,000-metre race during the 2010 Pacific Cup at Whonnock Lake on Saturday. Telep, whose injuries stem from a snowboarding accident 11 years ago, uses a special kayak stabilized with two pontoons, allowing him to stay upright in the water. Mitch Thompson/TIMES qualifiers, then hopefully to the World Championships in Hungary in 2012. “I know all my competition out there and to be quite honest, if I train hard over this fall, and hard this spring I will beat these guys, guaranteed. So I think I have big potential for doing very well for B.C. and for Canada.” Telep, Stewart and Priebe will continue training over the winter with a dry-land

system for paddling. Telep even hopes to compete with able-bodied kayakers. “I have pontoons on my kayak, which add a lot of drag versus able-bodied people who don’t,” he said. “Next year over the spring I want to train to be able to go without those pontoons. It’s a lot tippier, but it gives me the ten seconds I need to be in the worlds level.” Rick Hammer, the commodore at the Pitt

Meadows Paddling Club, said along with their competitive programs, they have adaptive paddling programs for youth as well. “Aside from the guys that are competing, we had four of the five high schools that brought some of their special needs students out to paddle between three and six times,” Hammer said. “It’s a very important program.” Telep said he wouldn’t

be able to do the sport at all without the help of the coaches at the club. He often has access to two or three who can help him. “Without the coaches we couldn’t get in and out of the water by ourselves,” he said. “We couldn’t even get the kayak to the water by ourselves, so it’s just so important to have people like that and an organization like that out there to help us.”

Local Rider, 11, wins U17 cyclocross race

Local Ride Racing team’s women were on the podium at the B.C. Cup Cyclocross race across the Lower Mainland. Maple Ridge’s Maggie Coles-Lyster, 11, won the U17 B.C. Cup Cyclocross race a week ago and placed fourth in the women’s category. Jean Ann McKirdy, also from Maple Ridge, took two back-to-back wins in the elite women’s category. McKirdy gained a gap from the group at the start, and then steadily extended her lead throughout the race to finish more than a minute ahead of her next competitor. “Both races were a lot of fun,”

McKirdy said. “The race in New Brighton Park had a really challenging double sand pit that was sometimes rideable, but usually riders were forced to get off and run. This made the race really technical – which I love.” Coles-Lyster, although she is young, is a veteran racer and has won many of the U17 cyclocross races in the last two years. For Sunday’s race she chose to move up to the Citizen Women’s Category for the added challenge, and finished fourth. The two events are a part of the B.C. Cup Cyclocross Series, which is held in parks throughout the Greater Vancouver Area from September through to

November. These races were the second and third races of the six-event series. Brett Wakefield, also of Maple Ridge, vied for the win in the very competitive Category Four Event in both races. Wakefield, who is also a varsity runner with the Simon Fraser track team, put his great fitness and running skills to work to put himself in the front group. Wakefield placed second in both races. Local Ride Racing will be hosting round five of the B.C. Cup series here in Maple Ridge. The fourth annual Pumpkin Cross cyclocross race will be on Oct 24 at the Maple Ridge Equi-Sport Centre, located on Park Lane just off of 132 Ave. in Maple Ridge.

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!

2095

Lumber/Building Supplies

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
