Vicki Huntington accepted congratulations from a supporter after it was clear she had won Tuesday night. The mood was celebratory at the Sundance Inn as Huntington became the first independent to ever be re-elected to the B.C. legislature.

Huntington does it again Independent grateful that Delta South voters see there is a different way for riding to be represented

BY

An independent can effectively represent a riding and be a voice for its citizens, says re-elected MLA Vicki Huntington. On Tuesday, Delta South voters bucked the surprising trend, which saw the Liberals win another majority government in B.C., by re-electing the independent Huntington for a second term. Thankful for all the campaign support and vote of confidence by South Deltans, Huntington said in an interview with the Optimist following election day that voters saw there can be a different way of being represented. “We worked hard to keep this riding informed. We worked hard to be transparent and available. I guess people saw that there can be real independence that can bring some results that can be good for the riding, representing the people openly

and honestly and with commitment. “They know that I represent this riding. They know that I believe in this riding. They know I care about this riding and I’ll continue to keep working as hard as I can.” Although her political leanings are Conservative, Huntington has long been outspoken when it comes to issues she cares about, including protecting the environment and the preservation of farmland. The veteran politician’s candor and advocacy on those, as well as other issues impacting South Delta, have made her a polarizing figure to some, but appealing to many others. Even before entering the provincial stage, Huntington’s sincerity and desire to cut through the usual politician’s jargon was evident during her days on Delta council, where she spent 15 years. In 2009, the former civic councillor’s gamble to run

as an independent paid off when she became the first independent in 60 years to win a seat in the legislature. On Tuesday, she made B.C. election history by becoming the first independent ever to be re-elected. Huntington’s first vic-

Slater finished with 15 per cent. This election saw Huntington not only hold on to disenchanted Liberal voters but also make gains from previous elections. She also managed to retain most of the NDP sup-

She received 48 per cent of the vote compared to McDonald’s 37 per cent, while New Democrat Nic

port that had strategically backed her in 2009. The Greens and Conservatives didn’t run a candidate in Delta South out of respect to her. She’ll be the lone independent in the legislature because the other two incumbents — John van Dongen and Bob Simpson — failed to get re-elected. However, there will be

another face among the sea of Liberal and New Democrat MLAs in Andrew Weaver, the first Green to be elected. Huntington described the Liberal victory as completely unexpected. “The NDP must have done something that frightened voters away and, conversely, the Liberals had a message that started to resonate with the voters, and they started to go back to the Liberals in droves. “I’m not the only one who was surprised, I think the Liberals were too. It’s just one of those chaotic expressions in British Columbia that make us so different than anywhere else in the country.” She doesn’t believe voters stayed clear of the fledging provincial Conservatives fearing a right-wing split, noting that public infighting among their ranks did them much harm despite the best efforts of leader John Cummins, a personal friend.

As far as what’s on her plate for the next four years, Huntington said it would be the issues she expressed during her campaign, including the fight to preserve agricultural land, stopping Terminal 2 from destroying the important ecological balance in Delta, and an effort to help coordinate and consolidate services for seniors, such as upgrading HandyDART. “Of course, there’s the (George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project) crossing. The crossing is a promise the premier made to this community and I’m going to never let the government forget the crossing, so the government is going to keep hearing from me and the people to follow through on that promise,” she said. “I also look forward to continuing working with the government and having access to the ministers that I’ve always had to get the results the community needs.”

Liberal rally doesn’t reach Delta South

Veteran civic politician Bruce McDonald comes up 2,500 votes shy despite party retaining majority gov’t BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

The mood at Bruce McDonald’s campaign office could be described as cautiously optimistic as the polls closed Tuesday night, however, it soon became clear that while the Liberals were pulling off a surprise victory province-wide, the same could not be said for the Delta South candidate. The long-time civic politician trailed from the beginning and while he won in some individual polling stations, it was not enough to overtake incumbent independent Vicki Huntington, whose slim lead in the beginning grew as more stations reported. McDonald saw the writing on the wall, so to speak, and called Huntington to concede before 9 p.m. While it appeared early in the evening to concede defeat, McDonald said the results were not trending in his favour. “I can do the numbers,” he said as large group gath-

ered around a single TV at his Ladner campaign office to watch the results come in. “It’s disappointing,” he said, adding he knew coming in that he had a lot of ground to make up during the campaign. “We knew when we started that we were behind, even more than the party.” Going into election day, McDonald said he felt good about the campaign. “I thought we ran a good campaign,” he said, adding he is proud it stuck to the issues and never relied on personal attacks. He thanked his network of volunteers and supporters for their tireless efforts over the three months leading up to the election. “I’m so honoured to work with these people,” he said. McDonald said he has always maintained that no matter what happened on election night he will still be a public servant. As for the future, he said he will have some decisions

South Delta

to make in a year-and-a-half when his seventh term on Delta council is up. Just a few doors along 48th Avenue at NDP candidate Nic Slater’s campaign office, supporters gathered around a small TV to watch the results. The mood was light at 8 p.m. as the polls closed with the NDP still projected to form government. Slater said he felt “really positive” about his campaign. The former federal NDP candidate said he knocked on 5,000 doors throughout the campaign and heard from many local constituents that they were tired of the Liberal government. Slater said he liked the New Democrats’ positive campaign. “Being positive with people and not getting into attacking people’s personalities... it makes it so much easier on the doorstep,” he said. Calls to Slater after the election were not returned by Optimist deadline.

Delta can’t save all its heritage structures, but more perhaps can be done to save as many as possible. That’s what Mayor Lois Jackson had to say as the municipality begins the process of revising its Heritage Strategy. “We can’t buy our way out of it as a municipality. I think we can try some strategies, like with the Harris Barn, which was a very special case,” Jackson said. Delta’s Heritage Advisory Commission identified the need to update the strategy as a way to engage the community about the issue. Consultant Donald Luxton and Associates Inc. was retained to work with a steering committee and civic staff to complete the project. As far as potential actions, Jackson believes establishing a stand-alone heritage society might be one solution. It’s an idea she mentioned previously when there was news of yet

another old home poised to come down. “There’s some things we can do, but I think we can look at different methods used in other areas of the province where, in particular, some societies and foundations are set up that have an ability to go out and raise money privately,” Jackson explained. “It’s very difficult for municipalities to do that and heritage committees don’t normally get involved in that fundraising aspect.” Some of the strategies that have been implemented since the document was last updated in 1997 include a municipal heritage register and conservation districts. Delta also has heritage incentives in its redevelopment bylaws and is considering others as part of a proposed incentive package for Ladner waterfront redevelopment. Efforts to update the Heritage Strategy will look for more ideas as well as identify the gaps in the existing heritage management program and find

ways to increase public awareness of the community benefits of heritage. One prominent and recent example of Delta preserving a building identified as an important heritage structure is the relocation and renovation of the Harris Barn. The structure was moved last year to the Kirkland House site on Ladner’s Arthur Drive and will become a community amenity. The fate of other buildings are uncertain, such as the old Kittson House on Ladner Trunk Road, which is eyed for eventual demolition. The now-vacant house requires huge dollars to restore or move. The Heritage Advisory Commission recommended the Kittson House be moved to the proposed MK Delta Lands development in North Delta, where the proponent could incorporate it as a community amenity. Luxton told the heritage commission he would present a final draft of the revised strategy in September.

Mayor Lois Jackson Fundraising society suggested A public open house will be held in the lobby of municipal hall on Wednesday, May 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. to provide information and receive feedback on heritage issues. For more information on the Heritage Strategy or to provide input, including participating in an online survey, contact the community planning and development department at 604-946-3380 or e-mail heritage@delta.ca. An information booth will also be available at the Harris Barn grand opening event on Saturday, May 25.

Mom’s car is stolen after son leaves keys inside

The following are some of the calls of interest the Delta police responded to in the South Delta area between Friday, May 10 and Sunday, May 12: Tsawwassen • May 10, 9:07 p.m., 5100-block of 11A Avenue: Police attended a residence as a result of a noise complaint. The police assisted a resident in asking the guests to leave. An intoxicated guest’s mother was called to come over and collect her child. The resident was given a strong warning regarding noise bylaws and hosting parties. • May 11, 3:05 p.m., Winskill Park: Complainant reported three youths in the park smoking what was believed to be marijuana. Police attended and located the youths who admitted to smoking a small amount of marijuana. All youths were strongly warned that similar future behaviour would be met with possible criminal charges and sent on their way after doing a thorough cleaning of the surrounding area’s garbage. • May 11, 3:28 p.m., 8A Avenue and 55A Street:

Resident reported a young male throw what appeared to be a beer can into bushes. He was subsequently identified nearby while

accompanied by three other young men. The suspect was observed carrying a heavy backpack the officer believed to contain more alcohol. The suspect admitted the possession of more alcohol. The alcohol was seized and will be lodged in exhibits for destruction. Parents informed by the officer. • May 12, 3:40 a.m., 600-block of English Bluff Road: Complainant called police to advise that an unknown person had shone a flashlight at the basement window and also shaken a carport door setting off the intruder alarm. Police attended and set up containment. There was no sign of forced entry, no damage and no suspect located. Ladner • May 11, 12:36 p.m., 4800-block of Georgia Street: Complainant report-

ed her vehicle had been stolen. Her son had been in possession of the vehicle and left it unlocked with his keys, driver’s licence and other ID inside. A day later, an anonymous caller reported the stolen vehicle had been parked in front of his home in the 4500-block of 44A Street since Friday, May 10. Police attended the unlocked vehicle and found it had been rummaged through, sustaining damage of approximately $300. • May 11, 5:06 p.m., Delta Air Park: Delta Fire Department called police requesting attendance to assist with an air emergency. DFD stated that a plane had gone off a runway. Upon arrival, officers were advised their presence was not required as the incident was a light aircraft/glider that had gone onto grass during a takeoff. • May 12, 9:40 p.m., 4600-block of Clarence Taylor Crescent: Complainant reported his cellphone had been stolen from the men’s change room in the Ladner Leisure Centre while he left it unattended on a bench.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW It might have been expected, or even considered old hat, but Vicki Huntington’s victory in Delta South in Tuesday’s provincial election was nothing short of remarkable. Huntington has been a popular politician in these parts for the last two decades, so to see her victorious again doesn’t seem terribly extraordinary, but when we look back at this accomplishment years from now I have a feeling it will take on much greater significance. Getting elected as an independent is extremely difficult, evidenced by the fact it had been 60 years between Huntington’s 2009 win and the one prior to that. Getting re-elected as an independent? Well, there’s no precedent for that as her victory Tuesday was the first time in B.C. electoral history it’s happened. The reason for that is candidates — and I’m talking really good ones here — still need the support of a party to get elected in B.C. in the new millennium. Huntington was one of three high-profile independents in the last legislature, but the only one of the trio to survive. John van Dongen had won five elections as a Liberal, but that lengthy record of public service and name recognition weren’t enough as he finished 20 percentage points behind the new Liberal MLA for Abbotsford South. Bob Simpson also came out on the wrong end of things in Cariboo North, falling 500 votes shy of his Liberal challenger despite having served two terms in Victoria. While most candidates get a sizable amount of support at the ballot box based on their leader or party platform, Huntington, like all independents, is forced to get every vote on her own. That’s a mountain that’s simply too difficult to scale for most. So why is she successful where other independents fall short? She’s intelligent, hard working, well intentioned, genuine and, perhaps most important of all, willing to speak up on behalf of her constituents. She also runs in a riding that leans right but has an environmental conscience, which sounds a lot like our provincial representative. In the end, I think the key is that Huntington has the ability to be all things to all people. The Greens and the Conservatives, which are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, both decided not to run candidates in Delta South out of respect. Throw in the fact the Liberals and NDP courted her prior to the 2009 election and you’ve got the rarest of all politicians: one who appeals to just about everyone. That’s a history-making combination.

Economy resonates as NDP suffers Leafs-like collapse MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT Congratulations to all who ran for office, winners and losers, and to their families, campaign volunteers and supporters. The Fat Lady has sung. It is over. In one of the most stunning comebacks in Canadian political history, the B.C. Liberals secured a majority government on Tuesday night. Absolutely everyone got it wrong except the inner circle of the campaign team whose internal polling on “E Day” showed there was hope. Professors, pundits and pollsters all messed up. As Christy Clark said the day after, “the media gets these polls for free... you get what you pay for.” Most are scrambling to wipe the egg from their faces, but at the end of the day, the Clark team has to pat itself on the back for sticking to the messaging around jobs and a strong economy. Obviously, the idea of a continued strong economy has resonated with the majority of British Columbians. Early support for the John

Cummins-led Conservative Party that looked to take away from the Liberals ultimately disappeared after a series of gaffes proved too much to overcome. Cummins lost badly to Mary Polak and not one Conservative candidate was elected. As the Toronto Maple Leafs of B.C. politics, the NDP will have to do some collective soul searching over the coming weeks to understand how they could squander a nine-point lead on election day that ultimately turned in to a 14-point swing for the Liberals in the aftermath. Adrian Dix had an open goal but he missed the net. Will the current left of centre party ever get an opportunity like it had on Tuesday again? Not Likely. It would appear that nice guys do indeed finish last and the Dix campaign’s strategy of avoiding negative campaigning ultimately failed. The NDP flip-flop on the Kinder Morgan issue did not help either. People and politicians love to talk about balance between the environment and the economy. Clearly, the attempt by the NDP to collect green support by overly supporting the environment side on the Kinder Morgan issue failed. B.C. has always been a resourcebased province and simply dismissing resource development and trade opportunity is not a realistic

approach for establishing an effective economic strategy. Ignoring the importance and collective economic benefit to all British Columbians from the development and trade of natural resources is woefully naive. In our region, congrats to independent Vicki Huntington, who ran a slick campaign, and to Liberal Scott Hamilton in Delta North, who prevailed in a tough battle with Sylvia Bishop of the NDP. Huntington’s independent colleagues did not get re-elected so the independent movement has taken a step backward. Huntington has appeared to again garner NDP votes. It will be interesting to see how one independent will work toward dealing with our land use and infrastructure issues. It may be that our municipal government will have a stronger voice in Victoria over the next few years. Delta South Liberal candidate Bruce McDonald and fellow long-time civic councillor Hamilton have relationships with the majority Liberal government that can be leveraged for the good of our communities. This is a promising opportunity to develop a solid working relationship with decision makers. Would a higher voter turnout have made a difference? Tough to tell but in the words of Thomas Jefferson, “You get the government you deserve.”

Pleased by Huntington’s win but devastated by NDP loss

Editor: I was absolutely gobsmacked at the election results. I was elated because Vicki Huntington got reelected but devastated by the NDP loss. Yes, although pro-NDP, I voted for Huntington because she’s just so damn good and works so very hard at issues important to South Delta. In my case, the person wins over the party. What I would like to know is why only 52 per

cent came out to vote. That’s shameful. I’d also like to know “who” makes up the other 48 per cent. Not their names, but their demographic groups. Were they predominately young, old, ethnic, ESL? I wonder if there is a way to determine some of these statistics. As to why the NPD lost, I suspect their stand on questioning the pipeline hurt them, which is so ironic because we have to

start moving away from fossil fuels now. This resource is not sustainable, which means it is becoming scarcer and will run out. By 2050 these fuels will be so expensive only the very rich will be able to afford them. This does not bode well for our children and grandchildren. The NDP had it right even though it might have cost them the election. ML (Mary-Lynn) Burke

Voters in Delta South fail to figure out it’s unwise to elect a voice in the wilderness Editor: You have got to be kidding? Vicki Huntington again? Do residents of South Delta go through a time warp every time they enter or exit the tunnel? Has the past four years proved nothing? Yes, Huntington has done a lot of chirping and not missed a photo-op, but other than the residents of

South Delta, her cries in the wilderness have fallen on deaf ears no matter how she tries to spin it. No one was listening in Victoria. She has had, and will have for another four years, absolutely no effect on anything. No one in government is listening to her so good luck South Delta getting any perks or support. Please do not interpret this as an attack on her

personally but rather an attack on how ineffective an independent MLA is in B.C. One would think the voters in South Delta were a little smarter than that. Obviously not. So now that the election is over we can all go back to doing what we do best... dragging the Southlands debate on for another 10 years. D. Robertson

Taste the Summer, Thank the Bees BY PATRICIA FLEMING

Delta’s sunlight and cooling ocean breezes make it the world’s best place for greenhouse farming. “Safe, nutritious greenhouse vegetables grown sustainably in Vancouver’s backyard”

t’s May, and strawberry season is almost here again. Eating fresh fruit is not only good for us, it’s also one of life’s basic pleasures. What would we do if these seasonal treats were no longer available? Could this happen? The past year has been another hard year for bees and beekeepers. Across North America and throughout the world bee populations are in decline. Without pollinators such as bees, we would lose a third of the food in our diet. Local agricultural systems would be hard hit because without bees, crops such as strawberries, blueberries and cranberries cannot produce fruit. In addition, many plants that produce gourds, such as melons and squashes, are also dependent on bees, making bees a keystone species. How we choose to live on earth and interact with all of its inhabitants, both plants and animals, affects bee populations. Loss of habitat and widespread use of pesticides contribute to weakening the resiliency of bee populations. We go about our lives day to day without giving much thought to these busy and beneficial insects. Local farmers bring in colonies of honeybees to pollinate their fruit crops, but once the fruit is set, bees still need pollen and nectar for the rest of the growing season. Here is where all of us have a role to play. By planting plants that provide sources of food for bees throughout the growing season, we can all help to support healthy bee populations. Several years ago, Delta Chamber of Commerce, recognized the serious nature of this problem and the potential impact that threatened bee populations would have on local agricultural productivity. The Chamber partnered with Earthwise Society to create an awareness and action program

With the support of Environment Canada and the Vancouver Foundation, Earthwise Society has developed resources for homeowners, businesses and farmers to help them select appropriate plants that will provide the continuous sources of flowers needed by bees throughout the growing season. Plant lists can be viewed on line at www.feedthebees. org. Bee Garden Starter kits and other bee friendly plants are available for sale at the Earthwise Farm Store. The call to action to Feed the Bees has been taken up by individuals, businesses, and farmers throughout Delta and beyond, but we need more of you to plant.

Single-stream recycling is a more efficient program

Editor: We are students at High Hopes Preschool at Hawthorne Park in Ladner. All of us, as concerned citizens, are discussing Delta’s recycling program. April was a “Guerrilla Green” theme at High Hopes and one of our projects was a letter to the mayor and council asking if Delta could please implement a more efficient recycling program. We propose a new waste collection that supports single-stream recycling, which means Delta residents will not need to sort items anymore. We would be able to mix all our recyclables together in one large cart with wheels and a handle, provided by the municipality. The streamlined pro-

gram and new recycling cart would be helpful in many ways. It would encourage people to recycle more because it would make the job easy and simple. The cart would also help the elderly and physically challenged because it is easy to move with wheels and a handle. To offset the cost of this new program we propose that garbage pick-up changes to twice a month instead of every week. We also request recycling pick-up at our school. Presently, the teacher takes home all the recycling and it is picked up at her home. Carmen Halpenny, Courtney Ellis, Melissa Ellis and all students at High Hopes Preschool

Karen Harding played host to this year’s Gwen’s Growing & Giving plant sale.

Hard work pays off as G3 plant sale is successful again

Editor: The organizing committee of G3 — Gwen’s Growing & Giving, a sharing and caring fundraiser — would like to thank everyone that supported the successful 19th annual plant sale, held under blue skies earlier this month. The plant material was amazing and eager buyers lined up to snatch their finds. Again this year we had a wide array of plants, ranging from the common to the rare and unique, with over 1,900 plants and 250 varieties donated. Over $2,400 was earned with proceeds to OWL and a Delta student bursary, both very deserving of our efforts. Leftover plants are being held over for 2014, donated to a seniors centre or donated to the Delta Hospital thrift shop. For the sale, we received plant donations from Bowen Island to Maple Ridge, from home gardeners to local businesses. We offered a wonderful assortment of lettuces and other vegetables from seed, including potatoes, garlic, strawberries and herbs. It is a lot of work to organize this sale. There is a lot of planning and discussion on how to make it better, what works and what doesn’t, and how to fix it. We also discuss how we can still hold true to the philosophy of selling plants

at a very low price and at the same time increase our profits so we can present a larger cheque to the recipients. There is lots of work done behind the scenes. Thank you all for job well done; it is a pleasure to be a member of such a committed group of people. Many thanks to our local business donors as well. Throughout the year we are constantly on the lookout for the 3Ps — plants, pots and people. It is fun, but it can be physically demanding, and we are not getting any younger. It is very fulfilling come sale day to see all our hard work appreciated by our customers and our recipients. The G3 recipients are always so grateful — a small amount of money can go a long way towards their goals, be it feeding the hawks, nursing an owl or eagle back to health, or helping a student fulfill their dreams. To all of you who support G3 with such enthusiasm, thank you. For without each of you, the G3 fundraiser would not be a success each year. I hope you all take time to sit back and just enjoy your garden ... the colours, the fragrances, the sounds. Pam Mason 2013 Facilitator Gwen’s Growing & Giving

The event allowed people to safely shred sensitive documents while also raising money for library services.

Cedar Park welcomes lead pastor Lee Kosa

Cedar Park Church has welcomed new lead pastor Lee Kosa and his family to South Delta. Kosa has a bachelor’s degree in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. After working marketing, communications and design, Kosa and his wife Sage moved to Canada where he earned a master of divinity from Regent College in Vancouver. Following service as a pastor in Vancouver for several years, Kosa brings a unique blend of creativity, passion and authenticity to the role of lead pastor at Cedar Park. He incorporates his artistic background into his speaking by using a variety of techniques from running around the sanctuary, playing a Justin Bieber song or by referencing a Caravaggio painting to make the stories and messages of the Christian Scriptures come alive to people of all ages and backgrounds. When not working, Kosa enjoys spending time with his wife and their three kids, Lucas, Jude and Eden.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

A special installation service to welcome Lee Kosa to the church and community will be held June 2 at Cedar Park. His newest creative outlet is dabbling in the genre of spoken word poetry, which he sneaks into sermons whenever he gets the chance. Kosa is excited about journeying with the community of Cedar Park as they seek to bless their neighbourhood, encourage the discouraged, welcome the stranger, feed the hungry and inspire the bored as

they follow the radical life of Jesus together. All are welcome to join Cedar Park in a special installation service to welcome Kosa to the church and community on Sunday, June 2 at 3 p.m. at Cedar Park Church in Ladner. He can also be found in action during office hours and Sunday services. Visit cedarparkchurch. org for more information.

Paying it forward “Paying it forward” is a concept that has made some news in the last couple of years. What happens is someone will pay for your items, usually anonymously, and the hope is that you will “pay it forward” to someone else, although it is not necessary that you do. I have often heard of this urban legend, but I have never once seen it done, much less have it happen to me. Until today that is. I was at Starbucks, and after I ordered, I was told it was already taken care of. At first I thought it was the barista being nice, however, she let me know the young lady who was before me had paid for me. I was speechless, and those who know me, know that is a very rare

occurrence. As I took my beverage, my mind still in shock, it made me smile, because in this day and age with so many “gifts” they seem to have a catch, this gift did not. It also reminded me of the gift of forgiveness that was given to me by Jesus Christ, who died for my sins and three days later rose again. It was a gift that he gave, freely, He didn’t say if you do this then it is yours, He simply says, I do this for you. I am thankful for my barista who reminded me of this most wonderful gift.

Horsing Around in Delta It’s just around the corner again. What you may ask is that? Well, the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair of course! With the sun starting to shine on a more regular basis and the lawn mowers being pulled out weekly it must mean it’s almost time for the May Long Weekend and along with that comes a tradition that has been in these parts for as long as anyone can remember. Folks start talking about the Cloverdale Rodeo during the long months of winter and now it’s finally here – and this year is geared up to impress. The May Long Weekend this year runs from May 17th – 20th and the whole weekend will be jammed packed with events and entertainment on the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition Fairgrounds located in Cloverdale on the corner of Highway 15 (176th Street) and 60th Avenue. Getting there is easy from all parts of the Lower Mainland and beyond. In fact, check out the Rodeo website at www. cloverdalerodeo.com for complete directions for all modes of transportation - maybe even by horse or stage coach! This year marks the 125th Annual Country Fair in Cloverdale. Hard to believe that the Country Fair has been around for so long but it is because of what it means to folks in these parts why it’s still an annual event and why it’s more popular each and every year. Families and friends gather together and take the time to spend some of that quality time with each other that tends to be put aside throughout the rest of the year in our busy day-to-day lives. With so many different events and family-friendly entertainment planned there is definitely something for everyone. Of course, the center piece is BC’s Largest Travelling Midway with plenty of rides and games for the whole family – maybe even one or two that will make even the toughest rodeo cowboy have the hair on the back of his neck stand up! Also back for 2013 are the Extreme Sports Zone with the World Freestyle Skateboard Round Up, the Outdoor Entertainment Stage with free performances throughout each day and the interactive Kidz Zone featuring appearances Judi the Manners Lady plus a new Go-Kart zone for kids aged 10 -16. Toss in some 4-H animal displays and a Mechanical Bull and you have all the makings for a weekend to remember. Along with what is happening on the Fairgrounds there are a few other long standing traditions that are taking place as well in and around downtown Cloverdale. Who doesn’t like a parade? The Cloverdale Rodeo Parade is a favorite for kids of all ages and it will be winding its’ way through Cloverdale on Saturday May 18th from 10 a.m. until noon. In town there will also be a Pancake Breakfast from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Saturday and throughout both May 18th and 19th there will be shuttle / trolley rides to help you get around Cloverdale. The 36th Annual Bed Races and Kids Decorated Bike Parade will happen on Thursday May 16th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the 16th Annual Chili Cook Off will be on Friday May 17th from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. along with live entertainment. For more information an all these great events happening around the Cloverdale Rodeo please check out the Cloverdale BIA website at www.cloverdalebia.com

and they will all be competing for a total of $328,000 in prize money. The top twenty-two rodeo contestants in each event (as per the 2012 World Final Standings), 2012 Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo Champions & 2012 Canadian Pro Rodeo Champions are invited to participate at the Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo. Each ride for each contestant is so important as they try to line themselves up for the prize money in the Rodeo Finals which run on Monday the 20th at 3 p.m. For a complete rundown and listing of the Rodeo events and information check out the Cloverdale Rodeo website at www.cloverdalerodeo.com

Foundation grant allows Reach to expand services

SUBMITTED PHOTO

A $7,000 cheque to support counselling services was presented to Reach Child and Youth Development Society executive director Renie D’Aquila (left) by Delta Community Foundation grant director Denis Denischuk, endowment patron Sandra O’Keefe and chair Wayne Connorton on their recent visit to Reach Preschool.

The Delta Community Foundation, through the Robert and Sandra O’Keefe Endowment Fund, has donated $7,000 to the Reach Child and Youth Development Society Counselling program to help more children with special needs and their families get support. “This is the fifth year that the foundation has supported the Reach Counselling program and we are so very grateful,” said Reach executive director Renie D’Aquila. “As a result we are able help an additional 25 per cent more families than our core funding allows each year.” The Reach Counselling program provides services to children and youth with a developmental disability and counselling for families, individuals and couples in Delta who have a child with a developmental disability. Counselling may address a variety of issues ranging from marital stress to depression to social anxiety. Services for younger chil-

dren up to age of 12 offers play therapy, helping with childhood issues such as transitions, trauma, depression and anxiety. It also offers parent and child interaction guidance, which is used to enhance the relationship of the parent and child, help the parent be a supportive play partner with the child, and enhance the play therapy the child is receiving. “Research shows us that there are strong linkages between social emotional competency and academic performance and lifelong learning,” said D’Aquila. “Supporting these needs through counselling and therapy not only helps children’s development, it strengthens homes and helps to keep families together.” Reach provides programs and services for children with special needs from birth to age 19, as well as an inclusive preschool for children with typically developing needs and children who require extra supports.

The Rotary clubs of Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta recently honoured these 27 local youths at the annual Delta Rotary Youth Awards.

Compassion & Empathy

Inner Strength

In the Compassion and Empathy category, these individuals will have demonstrated these traits in the form of a single event, project, or series of actions over a period of time. It is their individual act of caring and kindness that relieves the suffering, brings happiness or promotes peace within their community.

The Inner Strength category shows youths that have achieved victory over adversity and have shown hope, courage and optimism by overcoming difficulty. They have demonstrated leadership or the ability to turn things around by making something good out of a bad situation, and may be related to personal health, addiction, individual loss, or injury.

T

he Delta Music Makers are celebrating their 30th anniversary with a free concert in Ladner next Saturday. “This is our 30th year. It’s amazing. We started as a night school course for beginners,” says founder and music director Curt Jantzen. Long-term members of the community concert band voted on what music to perform during the first half of the show at Genesis Theatre.

“The second half will be new music, looking ahead to the next 30 years,” says assistant director Margaret Behenna. The group is comprised of over 50 members, including 11 who have been with the band from the very beginning, from around the Lower Mainland. Jantzen notes there is always room for newcomers. Jay Drew, who plays trumpet, and Janet Drew, who plays the flute, joined the band last September. “We’re the token newcomers, Janet and I,” said Jay Drew. “The only regret

I have from joining Music Makers is we didn’t do it sooner. It’s been a tremendously friendly, energetic and fun group to be with.” Janet Drew added, “You can be dog tired at the end of the day and as soon as you get to band, you’re energized. The whole group is electric almost.” In addition to performing locally the group has gone on tours to Europe, the United States and other areas of Canada. “I think we’ve represented the band very well wherever we’ve been out,” says Brian Ellis, who joined

in 1994 and plays bass clarinet. One of the band’s early trips was performing at Disneyland in 1988. “That was a big moment for this group,” says Jantzen, noting the band had to get through an audition. Tuba player Jhandie Jantzen, Curt’s wife, says the Disneyland experience was one of the most exciting things the group has done over its existence. She also notes the Music Makers performed for Paralympian Rick Hansen during his Man in Motion

World Tour. Locally, the band has played regularly at Delta’s Concerts in the Park series, once and sometimes twice a year at Delta Hospital’s extended care unit and, more recently, a Remembrance Day concert at KinVillage. The Music Makers founded an event of its own with Ladner Bandfest. The annual gathering of adult community bands takes place on June 8 and 9 this year at Memorial Park. There will be 22 bands participating, from the U.S., Vancouver Island as well as

the Lower Mainland. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Ladner Bandfest and the Royal Canadian Navy’s Naden Band has been invited. The anniversary concert is set for Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at Genesis Theatre, 5005-45th Ave., Ladner. Admission is by donation. There will be an anniversary cake cutting at the intermission. Proceeds go towards things like the group’s annual scholarship for a Delta Secondary music student, new music and uniforms, notes Ellis.

Flamenco show is family affair Grandmother, daughter and granddaughter will be performing together You know something is very unique when a grandmother, her daughter and granddaughter are bound together by the same passion, one that allows them to express themselves and perform together on the same stage. This is the case of Lynn, Lora and Olivia, three Tsawwassen residents who are part of Flamenco Tablao, the annual Los Gitanos School of Spanish Dance performance, which will take place at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre on May 24, 25 and 26. “I am so proud that these three incredible women from the same family are able to dance with me and show their passion, femininity and fire within through their love of flamenco,” said Bev Mantovani, owner and teacher of Los Gitanos. It was a series of events that led the trio into the hands of Mantovani.

A few years ago Mantovani’s husband owned a small bistro in Tsawwassen, and on some occasions they would use the venue for an impromptu Flamenco Fiesta. Lynn happened to go to one and immediately phoned her daughter Lora. “I knew she would love this,” said Lynn with a smile. Lora, in turn, thought this would be something wonderful for her then 10-yearold daughter Olivia to join. “She had only danced for a bit but it seemed like it would be a unique opportunity for her to learn something as exotic as flamenco in Tsawwassen.” Olivia was swept away by the fun and colourful costumes, the intricate movements, the challenge of the performance and pretty soon, after Lora realized that adult women were dancing too, she thought

she would try it too. “My background was gymnastics. I participated for years and years at Delta Gymnastics, but this is not something I had done before,” said Lora, who found the dance empower-

ing and considered it as much art as science. After Olivia had danced for two years and Lora had danced for one, Lora thought that her mom Lynn should join too as women of all ages were participat-

ing in the program. “I’m a golfer and curler, I’ve never danced in my life,” said Lynn. “Bev is a teacher who performs miracles. It is through her patience, encouragement, example and unflinching love of this dance form that I have been able to do what I thought was not possible — I am dancing flamenco.” At Tablao Flamenco, students from all walks of life and backgrounds, ranging in ages from 13 to 75, will be showing off their inner fire in a performance that will feature live music, including Spanish guitar, percussion, flute and traditional song. “One of the things that I love most about flamenco is that when you dance, you can channel your life experiences into the movement. You can show your sadness, disappointments, happiness, dreams, anger, redemption and any other emotions,”

newspaper

explained Mantovani. “So each individual, even when dancing the exact same dance, will express it very differently. The dancers’ interpretations are very exciting to watch.” Lynn, Lora and Olivia are excited they will have one dance where all three will be on stage at the same time. “This is an amazing experience for us,” said Lora. “We can spend time together and share together the love of this dance. We enjoy dressing up with these colourful costumes and can’t wait to show what we have learned so far.” Tickets for the show are $25 and can be purchased by calling 604-948-8081 or email info@losgitanos. ca. Performances will take place at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre at 7 p.m. on May 24 and 25 and at 3 p.m. on May 26.

Don’t forget fibre p.j. wren

Well on Your Way Dietary fibre used to be something we thought only our grandparents needed to help them stay “regular.” Not true anymore, as we become aware that dietary fibre has many benefits for many different age groups. Dietary fibre is currently found in cereals, breads, fruit and vegetables. There are two types of fibre that we need to eat daily for a healthy diet. Insoluble fibres include cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin, which all make up the structural parts of plant cell walls. A major role of insoluble fibre is to add bulk to our feces and to prevent constipation and associated problems such as hemorrhoids. Good sources of this type of fibre include wheat bran, corn bran, rice, bran, the skins on fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, dried beans and wholegrain foods. Soluble fibre is the second category of fibre that we need to eat on a daily basis. This includes pectin, gums and mucilage, which are all found mainly in plant cells. One of its major roles is to lower blood cholesterol levels (and it may also help with constipation). When blood cholesterol levels are high, fatty streaks and plaques are deposited along the walls of the arteries. This can make them dangerously narrow and lead to an increased risk of heart disease. Good sources of soluble fibre include fruit, vegetables, oat bran, barley, seed husks, flaxseeds, psyllium, dried beans, lentils, peas, soy milk and soy products. The principle advantage of a diet high in fibre is the health of the digestive system. The digestive system is lined with muscles that massage the food along the digestive tract from the moment it enters our throats, until the eventual waste is passed out of the bowels. Since fibre is relatively indigestible, it adds bulk to our feces and the soluble fibre soaks up water within our bodies, which then helps plump up the feces and allows it to pass through the gut more easily.

Fibrous foods are also recommended to individuals who are overweight because of their “bulkiness” and tendency to fill us up quicker. In particular, soluble fibre is very important for people looking to lose weight. It forms a gel-like substance within the digestive tract and this substance slows down the emptying of the stomach and the transit time the food passes through the digestive system, thus extending the time a person feels satisfied or “full.” For people with diabetes, eating a diet high in fibre also slows glucose absorption from the small intestines into the blood. This reduces the possibility of a surge of insulin, the hormone produced by the pancreas to stabilize the blood glucose levels. What is the recommended daily dietary fibre? For adults 50 years and younger, the new limits have been set at 38 grams for men and 25 grams for women; for those over 50, 30 grams for men and 21 grams for women. Tips on adding fibre to your diet: • A good way to start the day is to have a high fibre breakfast. Aim for a breakfast that has at least seven grams of fibre, like a serving of steel cut oats with a chopped apple and walnuts. • Eat your fruit and vegetables instead of drinking them. Whole foods, with the skins eaten when you can, are higher in fibre than juice. If you do juice, however, then make sure your snacks are whole foods and that you add a salad to either your lunch or dinner (or both!). • Add lentils or cooked beans to your soups, casseroles or salads. • Add dried fruit, nuts or seeds to yogurt, salads or muffins. • Snack on mixed nuts. My personal favourite goto snack is an apple and a handful of almonds. • Instead of white rice or pasta as your side dish, serve quinoa, whole grain barley, bulgur or other ancient grains that are high in fibre. • Wash and cut up a large veggie tray and place it in your fridge for easy snacking throughout the week. If it’s accessible, you will eat it. • Add ground flax seed, or chia seed, to your protein shakes or smoothies.

• Make a large salad and keep in the fridge for easy side dishes throughout the week. • Snack on edamame. • Add sunflower seeds to your salad or sprinkle on top of an avocado for a high-fibre healthy snack. Just remember: • When you add fibre to your diet, be sure to add extra fluid as well. • Add fibre slowly to your diet slowly for fewer problems with gas and cramping. • Do not get caught up in the “added fibre” craze that food manufacturers have started putting on their labels (such as yogurt and other foods where fibre has been added and is not naturally occurring). The body does not process this type of fibre the same as it processes real food, such as fruit, vegetables and nuts.

sometimes sad, and occasionally funny glimpse into one man’s policing career. In a completely different category, local author and grandmother Darlene Foster has created a young Canadian character, Amanda Ross, who goes on adventures in a series of short books. Amanda in England: The Missing Novel finds her landing in London and meeting up with Leah, a friend from previous stories. Curiously, she also meets an odd young girl who ends up playing a central role in the mystery that ensues. This charming, accessible story is a great way for young people to read about travel, as Foster manages to weave many of southern England’s most popular tourist spots into the plot. This book brings back memories of a much earlier series of novels that most Canadian girls relished: the Nancy Drew books. The same colourful descriptions, fast pace, and quirky characters are included — and so is the totally unrealistic dependence on coincidence. Even young readers will quickly realize that the odds of running into the same few characters, day after day, among the millions of people in one of the world’s largest cities, is extremely low — and they won’t care. Delta is lucky to have storytellers such as Foster and Barker — and lucky too for the emerging selfpublishing industry that provides a platform for them.

police officer, while the other is a gentle, accessible mystery story aimed at a young readership. Life Before the Taser, recently self-published by Barker, presents his experience with the Vancouver Police Department over 25 years. It begins rather jarringly by describing in the first sentence Barker being fired from his previous job, and his casual interest in a newspaper advertisement for police officers. What unfolds is a series of vignettes as he is trained for police work, followed by a long career in various roles within the force. Barker does not hold back: he tells us about times he “screwed up,” about superiors who did not deal with him fairly and about good times he enjoyed with trusty colleagues. He provides a window on a world that most of us don’t know, and probably haven’t thought much about. A random motorcycle cop ticketing traffic violators takes on a new perspective as we read about his successes and frustrations in surviving the bureaucracy of the police force. I would have liked more background; for example, he mentions his marital status only briefly, and it would have been illuminating to learn how his dangerous, demanding work affected his personal life. There are also some technical writing issues that would have benefited from editing, but they do not detract from an honest,

Barb Fraser and Dennis Henderson will be adding another element to their sound next Friday when they perform at Ladner’s Genesis Theatre. Henderson will debut his banjo at the latest live@5005 concert. “We’re exploring our sound. We’ve been writing for many years so we’re developing a little bit of a catalogue of songs,” says Fraser. “We decided we wanted to mix up the flavour a little bit. It’s an amazing instrument. Dennis always amazes me, he just picks the darn thing up and

starts playing. He’s very talented.” Henderson says the instrument has a certain beauty in its sparseness. “That’s what I like about it.” The couple “met many years ago” while in a Vancouver band. They both sing and play guitar with a style that includes root, folk and also has a foot in popular music. “We’ve played in so many different kinds of bands together and separately, we kind of meld all those influences,” says Henderson. Fraser notes they’ll give a nod to a few of their influences with cover songs at

the upcoming show ranging from Alison Krauss, the Reverend Al Green and Bob Marley. They have studio time booked for early July. For updates visit fraser-henderson.com. Linda Kidder will be a special guest at the upcoming concert. Kidder has previously performed at Genesis as a part of the Cruisin’ with the Boomers show as well as with the band August. The concert is set for Friday, May 24, at 8 p.m. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $10 (cash only). More information can be found at genesistheatre.ca.

Huge mosque to open on River Road

Grand opening set for Saturday as long journey for Ahmadiyya Movement results in 33,000-square-foot facility AX

R @MCNQ F X@QL@SH

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

Thousands are expected to attend the grand opening Saturday of one of Canada’s biggest mosques in Delta. Dignitaries, including elected officials, will also be on hand for the opening ceremony of Baitur Rahman, or House of Gracious God, a grand mosque for the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. Located at 9750 River Rd., the mosque, which covers 33,000 square feet and has a 76-foot minaret, is to be a central point for prayers, meetings as well as social and religious interfaith gatherings. A gymnasium is also part of the complex. With an occupancy capacity of 1,100 people, the structure has a contemporary, modular design with clean, straight-edge lines aimed complementing the surrounding scenery. The new mosque is similar, but smaller in scale, to a stunning 48,000-squarefoot facility the Ahmadiyya opened in Calgary in 2008,

The Ahmadiyya Movement’s mosque on River Road is one of the biggest in Canada. Thousands are expected tomorrow for the grand opening celebrations, which are open to the public. Canada’s largest mosque complex. Delta council originally approved an application for the River Road mosque in 2005 and a groundbreaking was held several months later. A development variance permit was also issued but had lapsed as the building’s plans were revised. The application took a few years to wind its way through the approval process, but now there’s

jubilation as construction is complete. “It took a long time but now this dream is coming true. We are happy and right now what we see is a beautiful structure that Delta will enjoy,” said Rizwan Peerzada, president of the Surrey-East chapter of the Ahmadiyya Movement and communications director for the Vancouver region. “Right now, Delta doesn’t have any mosques or Sikh

temples. We will present our house of the worship, promoting peace and harmony from here,” he said. The local Ahmadiyya Movement chapter purchased the land in 1995 and had been using an old elementary school on the site as a place of worship. Noting the $8 million mosque was paid for entirely through donations from local members, Peerzada said the Ahmadiyya

Movement promotes peace and inter-faith dialogue. The faith has branches in more than 178 countries with a membership in the tens of millions. Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in the small village of Qadian, located in the Punjab, India, established the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam in 1889. The Ahmadiyya sect in Islam believe that Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was

a prophet, while most other Muslims claim Mohammed was the last messenger of God. The Ahmadiyya say Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad “divested Islam of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings.” They say he has united the family of religions under the single banner of the true Islam by safeguarding the teachings of other religious faiths. Ahmadiyya also note they’re the leading Islamic organization to categorically reject terrorism in any form. Also attending Saturday’s celebration will be Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the spiritual and administrative leader of the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at. He’s scheduled to take part in the ribbon cutting and plaque unveiling as well as talk to the media about his views on recent events around the world, including terrorism. The opening ceremony goes from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s open to the public.

We are very pleased to have provided the Design and Construction for The New Baitur Rahman Mosque in Delta, BC. Congratulation to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Community!

Forte rolls forward thanks to redesign Kia offering goes from conservative to sophisticated BY

MALCOLM GUNN

www.wheelbasemedia.com

Well, they can’t all be home runs, all the time, now can they? Despite being an all-new model for 2010, the Kia

Forte never really caught on in a big way. When you look at the numbers now, it really has nowhere to go but up; and with this redesign, that’s where this compact is headed. The new Forte that

launches this spring bears the unmistakable influence of design chief Peter Schreyer. For the past six years, the former Audi stylist has been largely responsible for the style of Kia’s fleet, as well as those built

by its Hyundai parent. With Schreyer’s assistance, Hyundai Elantra sales have more than doubled since the 2008 model year, while the Forte, which trails by a considerable margin, has experienced

The new Forte looks like a cross between the Rio and the Optima. The Forte is a bit longer than the outgoing model, but also has less base horsepower.

a more modest advance since arriving for 2010. The Forte’s platform is shared with the Elantra. It was pretty obvious, however, that to keep up, the Forte was going to have to undergo a dramatic metamorphosis. The Forte’s looks for 2014 have been dramatically changed from play-it-safe conservative to fashionably sophisticated. The car contains elements of the Elantra, particularly above the beltline with its sloping windshield, while the distinctive familial “tiger nose” provides an important point of differentiation. Overall length has increased by about 2.5 centimetres, while the distance between the front and rear wheels has been extended by five centimetres. That stretch pays off in added legroom for front and rear passengers, but a lower roofline means there’s a bit less total passenger volume than before. Also dialed back somewhat is the Forte’s power. The new base 1.8-litre engine (also shared with the Elantra) pumps out 148 horsepower and 131 poundfeet of torque, compared with 156 horsepower and 144 pound-feet for the previous base 2.0-litre. The now-optional 2.0litre four-cylinder (that surprisingly is not on the Elantra sedan’s menu) produces 173 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes with the 1.8, while a six-speed automatic is optional, but standard with the 2.0 along with Kia’s “Idle Stop & Go.” This piece of new fuel-saving tech shuts off the engine when the Forte is stopped in traffic, then

restarts it when the brake pedal is released. Spending time aboard the Forte will prove comforting for passengers and especially pleasing for the driver who faces a clearly legible, intuitively laid-out dashboard and control panel. He or she also has command over the level of steering effort with the Forte’s optional Flex Steer system. With it, the electric power steering can be adjusted to Comfort, Normal and Sport settings, with the latter offering the least amount of assist. Of the Forte’s two trim levels, the starting-point LX leans to the simpler side of the ledger with its smaller engine, 15-inch steel wheels, basic audio system and the lack of cruise control or a keyless-remoteentry button on the fob. Move up to the EX and it’s a different story. Along with adding the LX’s missing items, you can count on dual-zone climate control, a Microsoft-powered infotainment system, backup camera, glove-box cooler and 16-inch alloy wheels. Oh, and the optional 2.0litre four-cylinder is also an EX staple. But it’s the lengthy option list that can turn the EX into a junior-sized luxury sedan. A navigation system, power sunroof, heated front seats and steering wheel, 10-way power driver’s seat, 17-inch wheels and highintensity-discharge (HID) headlights are all available. The new Forte Sedan with its estimated $17,500 starting price will be joined by an equally new Forte5 wagon this fall. Both vehicles will elevate the brand in the eyes of compact-car shoppers and put yet another feather in Schreyer’s cap.

Babies graduate, but it’s parents better prepared An unusual graduation ceremony took place at Fraser Health’s South Delta Health Unit in Ladner late last month. A room full of babies, who had all just turned six months of age, “graduated” from the program. Six months from now, the same rite of passage will take place for the next crop of newborns. Baby and You is offered to new parents and their newborns. It teaches everything from how to safely put your child to sleep, to

feeding tips, to how to protect your baby from everyday household hazards. “The nurses at the unit really are the real-life baby whisperers,” says Raymond Reitsma, whose son Carter, born via surrogacy six months ago, just received his diploma. “The nurses at the South Delta Health Unit are extremely skilled professionals, and are a huge source of support and information for new parents.” In addition to having an opportunity to ask the nurs-

es questions, the unit also has expert guest speakers come in to cover a series of important topics. Some of the most valuable lectures included sessions on how to help prevent severe burns, baby dental care and infant CPR. A special bond also occurs with the new parents at the group. Most keep in touch via social media once their course is completed. Baby and You meets every Thursday afternoon at the South Delta Health Unit.

Kelowna pro cashes in at Beach Grove Course record opening round sends Samatha Richdale on her way to victory in CN Tour event A blazing first round set the table for Samantha Richdale to capture the season-opening event on the 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Tour at the Beach Grove Golf Club. Playing from the back tees, the 29-year-old from Kelowna posted eight birdies en route to a women’s course record 7-underpar 65 to open up a comfortable lead she never would relinquish. Richdale followed with a 1-over 73 Wednesday to finish four shots ahead of 15-year-old Ontario amateur standout Brooke Henderson. It was Richdale’s first CN Canadians Women’s Tour victory and earns her $10,000 and an exemption into the 2013 CN Women’s Canadian Open at Royal Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton, August 19-25. “This is pretty awesome, that was my main reason to come out and play at these CN Events was to get that exemption,” said Richdale. “I’m really excited to be able to go play in Edmonton because I used to live in St. Albert so it will be fun to go back there.” Her record opening round saw her sink a birdie putt on her final hole to post a 4-under 31 on the back nine. “I hit 14 greens and I putted really well,” she added. “I think I only had 26 putts but I hit some

baseball was Thompson’s passion. He was good enough to play at the collegiate level south of the border — first at Grace College in Indiana then at Ball State University. He put his teaching degree to use in the US before returning to B.C. to work in Merritt before landing closer to home at Delta secondary. His last taste of competitive volleyball was back in Grade 11 but that didn’t stop Thompson from getting involved in the DSS program and helping longtime and legendary coach Barb Salt. She was the architect behind the Pacers becoming a perennial powerhouse and her tireless efforts were recognized with a Delta Sports Hall

of Fame induction in 2008. Salt eventually retired and Thompson made sure the program’s momentum continued on. The 43year-old has been serving as head coach for the past five years. The Pacers were 10th at the provincials back in December. “I was there to basically fill a hole,” said Thompson, trying to downplay his role. “I had a really good mentorship working alongside Barb and have just tried to continue on what she started here.” Thompson also serves as the school’s athletic director and is spending his time on the soccer field sidelines these days watching his seven-year-old daughter play.

Delta Islanders Midget “A” lacrosse team continued its impressive start to the season by capturing bronze at last weekend’s Barn Burner Tournament in Ridge Meadows. The Islanders went 2-1 in preliminary play before squaring off against Burnaby in the third place game. The penalty-filled contest saw the opposition rack up 67 minutes as Delta pulled away for an 8-3 victory. Riley Taylor opened the scoring in the first period on a set-up from Trevor Snow. The pair then added goals in the middle

stanza with Brendan Ancrum drawing an assist. Delta then enjoyed a big third period with a pair of goals from Riley Phillips and singles from Brad Phillips, Kaden Janzen and Jared Beaton. Goaltender Kyle Geere was outstanding throughout and collected player of the game honours. The Islanders are also off to a solid start in league play with a 5-3 record to date. This weekend, they head to Minoru Arena for Richmond Lacrosse’s annual midget tournament.

COOPER, Audrey Theresa May 23, 1921 - Apr 24, 2013 Audrey passed peacefully on the afternoon of April 24, 2013 with her son Bill and her husband Jack at her side. Audrey was born in Winnipeg on May 23, 1921 where she lived for many years, most recently in the community of Rivercrest on the outskirts of Winnipeg, where she and Jack gained many lifelong friends. For the past 55 years, Audrey and Jack have lived in the idyllic community of Beach Grove in the Tsawwassen area of Delta, B.C. Audrey is also survived by her three grandchildren, Taylor, Bryce and Kate. Audrey was a founding member of the South Delta Baptist Church which she attended regularly until the last few years when her loss of eyesight and hearing made her attendance at Sunday Services too difficult. A memorial service will be held at the South Delta Baptist Church at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, 2013.

Delta Hospital nurses Lori and Alison for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, please donate to The Canadian Cancer Society.
