‘Twas the night before Christmas UFO sighting prompts NORAD to intercept sleigh By Ursula Maxwell-Lewis Santa first crossed my radar during an emergency landing in Reykjavik, Iceland. No kidding. There he was, an overweight dude stuffed into a baggy red velour outfit vanishing around a humungous Icelandic snow hill at 1 a.m in a raging blizzard. “Look! It’s him!” I whispered to my mother. “Who?” “Santa! It’s him!” She’d missed him. But not me. Five-year-olds never miss stuff like that. It was a sign. Santa was following us from Scotland to Canada, What a relief. When your parents cart you around the globe in the

middle of winter you worry about details like Santa tracking your movements. Two days later, while temporarily camping out at our friends’ home north of Toronto, someone switched on the radio. “We interrupt this broadcast to advise listeners that NORAD is tracking an unidentified object. It’s coming our way from around Greenland,” the announcer reported. I got goose bumps. “That’s funny.” The announcer sounded mystified. A hopeful peek into the inky night beyond the snow drifting against the storm window yielded no clue at my end.

Santa arrives safely at the 2010 Parade of Lights. But one Dec. 24 it was touch and go, according to frightening radio reports.

“There’s something leaping up and down…and there’s a fat guy… in …. It looks like a sleigh! Don’t worry ladies and gentlemen. NORAD is scrambling aircrafts to intercept.” I was beginning to panic. It was Christmas Eve. What was the matter with these guys? What did ‘in-

tercept’ mean? It sure didn’t sound good. I’d seen Santa filing his flight plan, now some wise guys in this foreign country were going to take him out! Making a ‘phone call’ to the radio station, Mother explained that her daughter had seen Santa recently. That could be who it was.

Within the hour, the program was interrupted again. “NORAD has confirmed the strange object is a sleigh loaded with toys pulled by flying reindeer! A fat man in a red suit seems to be driving – and having a whale of a good time!” See SANTA / Page 3

What to have for dinner weighted heavily on my mother’s mind. For there seemed to be absolutely nothing.

By Mary Jane Shannon In the year 1877, my father and mother, an older brother and I, a babe in arms, came to live in what is now the Cloverdale District. In those days there was no name attached to the place, although not long afterward it was named Clover Valley

by my Uncle William Shannon. It was done in the fashion. On a spring day he was writing a letter to a friend in Ontario, and wishing to head his letter he looked out the door to see the clover growing so luxuriantly that he straightway wrote Clover Valley at the top of the page. Not until 1891 did the district bear the name of Cloverdale which was assigned to its railway station by the Great Northern Railway. This is the story of an

Christmas day was coming close and what to have for Christmas dinner weighted heavily on my mother’s mind. For there seemed to be absolutely nothing.

Santa arrived by helicopter back on Dec. 2, 1965, when he dropped by Riverside shopping Centre in North Surrey. The arrival was attended by large crowds of enthusiastic children.

ta’s telephone number were mistakenly put through to the CONAD Commanderin-Chief ’s operations “Hotline” instead. The late Harry Shoup of the U.S. Air Force had his staff check the radar for signs that Santa was making his way south from the North Pole, the site says. “Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.”

News in brief “His Christmas Eve trip may seem to take around 24 hours, but to Santa it may last days, weeks or even months in standard time.” The tradition of tracking Santa began in 1955, when children began calling CONAD, the predecessor to NORAD, hoping to speak with Santa Claus. A misprint in a department store ad resulted in a big mix-up. Children dialing San-

By the time you read this, Santa and his reindeer-powered sleigh will have already left the North Pole for a magical journey. But there’s still time to follow their path at NORAD’s Santa Tracker website (www. noradsanta.org) or on Google Maps or by using Google Earth. It’s possible to see minute-by-minute coverage of Santa’s location as he delivers gifts to the children of the world. It’s known from Santa Cam images that he uses a herd of flying reindeer for quick transportation, but detailed information remains elusive after all these years. “The fact that Santa Claus is more than 16

centuries old, yet does not appear to age, is our biggest clue that he does not work within time as we know it,” the Santa Tracker website says.

and the liquid thickened into a savoury gravy. Then all was put into a large round milk pan and covered with a pastry crust. This was the main dish. Now dessert must be thought of, so mother brought from the cellar some wild blackberries which she had picked and bottled the summer before. From these she made a number of pies. She also brought from the cellar some jars of

cranberry jelly made from the low bush cranberries which were so plentiful in the marshes and bogs in those days. On Christmas day our neighbours appeared. Some came miles over trails through the woods carrying guns for protection against the marauding cougar and the chance bear who had not settled yet to his winter long sleep. With cheery Christmas greetings and much jollity we gathered around the long table

that my father had contrived with a few planks for this special day. And very festive it looked too with a snow white cloth, a lovely centrepiece of Oregon grape leaves, some dishes of glistening cranberry jelly here and there, and the big steaming pie sitting before my proud father. Never was duck pie more appreciated as on that occasion, and many were the compliments my mother received from the guests who declared over and over

they had never eaten anything so good. The blackberry pie had its share of compliments too. Years afterwards when we had everything such as turkey, plum pudding, mince pie and all

the trimmings, those old friends still spoke glowingly of that wonderful duck pie. Mary J. Shannon Cedarhurst Hospital June 3, 1959

Something must be done about shamefully low voter turnouts. Giving 16-year-olds the vote might be a start Some critics are scoffing – loudly – at the suggestion to lower B.C.’s voting age to 16. Might I suggest that these folks haven’t talked with any live, actual 16-year-olds lately? As editor of the Cloverdale Reporter for the past year and a bit, it’s been my sincere privilege to have met and interviewed local teens. Some harbour dreams of becoming pop stars, others are already star athletes on school or regional teams. Plenty seem to be in a constant state of do-gooder-ism – incessantly fundraising on behalf of local, national and international aid projects. And, god love ‘em, some of these young whippersnappers actually get a kick out of reading, and connecting with, their local newspaper – whether it’s by email and text message, or via YouTube and Facebook accounts, to let us know what’s going on in their lives. (Just like their parents, and grandparents.) Kids today are smart, informed, compassionate, and demonstrate a healthy curiosity about the world, whether it’s the lack of universal access to free elementary education in Kenya or the fact that there are some doubleincome families right here in Cloverdale who don’t earn enough to make ends meet each month – forcing them to turn to the food bank or the Christmas Hamper Program. Sure, I’m generalizing here. Some Grade

10 students do need supervision to get their homework done and aren’t allowed to drive by themselves – yet. However, the same can be said of any number of people over the current voting age. I categorically reject the notion that people who are 16 are somehow easier to manipulate than the rest of us. Ever tried to guilt a teenager into cleaning her room or drag the vacuum cleaner around for a change? Do we really believe some teenage wastrel is going to summon the energy to shuffle over to the polling stations on election day just so she can spoil a ballot or cast an uninformed, manipulated vote for that super “cool” Mike de Jong guy? Not gonna happen. Some 16-year-olds will take the responsibility – their duty – to vote seriously, and will make sure to get out and exercise it on election day. As for the suggestion that Liberal leader hopefuls de Jong and George Abbott are somehow grasping for easy votes or are pandering to a fickle demographic in floating the idea of lowering the voting age, well, maybe. That doesn’t make it a bad idea. Something does need to be done about B.C.’s shamefully low voter turnouts.

We’re well past the point of feigning mild concern. In just eight years, B.C.’s voter turnout has plummeted from 72 per cent in 2001 to slightly over 50 per cent in May 2009. Drastic measures are needed. Fixed election dates that coincide with NHL playoff season aren’t the way to do it. My suggestions include offering incentives (the next voter in line wins a free car!) and on-line voting – an idea whose time has well and truly come, and if you can’t see the merits in that, well, you’re just kidding yourself. We also need to demonstrate that youth issues matter. Critics of lowering the voting age fret about changing the focus of elections from mature issues like the HST or infrastructure spending to supposedly youth-oriented issues like tuition fees and the minimum wage. Anyone who’s been faced with a layoff because their sawmill shut down, their newspaper was put out of business, or because their political party was decimated on election day would understand those issues have broad voter appeal. When you’re an out-of-work adult, school tuition is called “retraining” and minimum wage is called “paying the bills”.

Surrey Food Bank executive director Marilyn Herrmann. The red dots represent where food bank clients live. The map shows clients come from all over Surrey.

The geography of need Food bank clients come from all over Surrey Between 80 and 100 Cloverdale residents use the Surrey Food Bank even though it’s located in North Surrey, new research conducted by the food bank and the City of Surrey shows. The two partnered in October to get a better idea of where clients are coming from. The result is a map of Surrey with red dots representing where clients live. People from all over Surrey come to the Whalley warehouse. “Every red dot is where a Surrey Food Bank client lives,” executive director Marilyn Herrmann told Black Press. “The myth that people

who come to the food bank live in North Surrey just got blown out of the water.” The food bank serves clients from as far south as 40 Avenue as well as North Delta. It’s outgrown its current home, forcing the agency to contemplate a move to somewhere more suitable. The food bank serves 250-300 families a day, not including the two satellite depots that open on alternating Tuesdays. One is at Zion Lutheran Church in Cloverdale, and the other located at the Boys and Girls Club in North Delta. The Surrey Food Bank is in the middle of its

December fundraising drive. It needs to raise $45,000 to keep the shelves stocked through 2011. Whatever the season, clients don’t stop coming. “We’re not really seeing seasonal changes,” Hermann says. “People seem to need us all the time.” Donate food at local supermarkets, and for more information, call 604-581-5443 or visit. surreyfoodbank.org. –Black Press

A cure for all inflammation Inflammation is the basic pathology of all diseases. It brings on physiological changes like redness, heat, itchiness, exudation and pain, as well as structural changes like swelling, erosions, fibrosis and calcification. Inflammation can be a result of infection, injury, metabolic changes, and immune responses. Pain is a result of irritation of the nerve endings (sensors). This can result from acute damages as in a cut or bone fracture, or from irritation by inflammatory materials. Common causes of chronic pains include long standing injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia and inflammation of body organs. Hence, if we can eliminate inflammation, we can control pain. Inflammation is due to the release of a hormonelike substance called prostaglandin (PGE-1) and the process is sustained by an enzyme called CyclooxyL-phenylalanine is an amino acid that can improve genase 2 (COX-2). So if we can eliminate COX-2 mood and elevate pain threshold.
