Effort to quake-proof DSS School district spending $200,000 on study of soil conditions at Ladner high school BY

The Delta school district wants a better idea of the danger lurking under the feet of students should a major earthquake hit. The Delta school board was recently advanced $200,000 from the province to conduct a detailed geotechnical study of the soil conditions under schools and the possible outcome should the so-called “big one” shake the region, an earthquake so powerful it occurs every few hundred years. The money will come from

there’s a lot of guesswork as to what could happen... and to take some of that guesswork out the Ministry (of Education) advanced us $200,0000 to do special studies that will then be applied to not just Delta Secondary, but to all the schools considered vulnerable,” he explained. The study will involve engineers from UBC’s civil engineering department as well as a geotechnical consultant and the Association of Professional Engineers. See QUAKE page 3

A Surrey man has been charged in the killing of 21-year-old Taylor Johnson, the Tsawwassen man found shot to death in a Langley home earlier this year. Jesse River Hill, 23, was charged Thursday with second degree murder, break and enter with intent, disguise with intent and discharging a firearm with intent. The killing was random and Johnson did not know the suspect, said Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for IHIT. “It was a senseless act that tragically took the life of Taylor,” she said. “This has changed everything in our lives,” said Wendy Johnson, Taylor’s step-mother. “It is an open wound that is very raw,” she added.

Rally planned at health unit

Residents concerned about pending service cuts at the South Delta Public Health Unit are planning a rally outside the building Sunday morning. Organizers are calling on all South Delta parents and caregivers who have benefited from the services provided by the health unit to bring their children and join the protest, which is set for 10:30 a.m. at the facility adjacent to municipal hall in Ladner’s civic precinct. According to organizers, the rally is intended to show everyone how the health unit and its nurses have helped to promote a healthy community and deliver preventative health care in South Delta.

Senior discharged into the night Fraser Health apologizes for treatment of 90-year-old BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

A 90-year-old Tsawwassen woman was cold, frightened and still bleeding when discharged from Delta Hospital in the middle of the night. Fraser Health has issued an apology over the treatment Vivian Fitzpatrick, who is legally blind, received at the hospital earlier this week, but her daughter, Paddy Monroe, doesn’t think that’s good enough. “They said it was because of a junior nurse. I don’t buy it. This is more to do with cuts to our health care by Fraser Health as much as anything,” Monroe told the Optimist. Suffering from high blood pressure, Fitzpatrick’s troubles began Monday evening when she was taken by ambulance to the hospital complaining of leg pain and a headache. She was in her pajamas at the time. After seeing a doctor initially, Monroe explained, some time later her mother was told by a nurse she was discharged, without seeing a doctor again. A 50-year resident of

Tsawwassen, Fitzpatrick was wheeled into the emergency waiting area some time after midnight and was told a cab would be called for her. “I didn’t know what to do. I was cold and shivering. A nurse saw that I was cold and gave me a sheet to put around my shoulder. I didn’t even have money for a cab and was all alone,” Fitzpatrick explained.

“We just don’t want it to happen to anybody else.” Paddy Monroe

The nurse also provided Fitzpatrick with a pair of socks, but she was still cold. Monroe said she is the emergency contact, but wasn’t told her mother was being put in the cab, shoeless in the rain, around 1:30 a.m. She said her mother’s caregiver was called to make sure they could pay for the cab when her mother was dropped off. Monroe said she never thought her mother would be released on her own in

QUAKE from page 1 Geyer noted liquefiable soils could cause a sinking effect, depending on the severity of a quake. “With the sinking effect with a school like Delta Secondary, which is founded on piles but the piles are not connected, we could actually have the piles shoot up through the floor and the building collapse on top of it,” he said. New multi-storey buildings in South Delta now require a raft foundation, a thick concrete slab (it can

be called a mat) reinforced with steel to cover an entire contact area. Its purpose is to distribute the pressure over a large area so the soil can bear the stress. That’s something that will be added to DSS, Geyer said. The construction challenge is being addressed in other projects in South Delta, including the Century Group’s sixstorey Northgate development at the former Southpointe Academy site in Tsawwassen.

the middle of the night, expecting to have at least been able to pick her up later in the morning. Adding to the stress, Fitzpatrick noticed the sheet was covered in blood when she made it home. She said she can’t understand why she was released, noting her bed would have stayed empty as the ER didn’t appear busy. “I don’t want to be critical of the staff at the hospital who are doing their best. The whole scenario that’s happened is Fraser Health’s problem. We know that the doctors and nurses are getting their directives from Fraser Health,” Monroe said. “It could have been worse and we’re just appreciative right now she is OK. We just don’t want it to happen to anybody else.” The health region would not discuss details of the case but provided a written statement by email: “This is a very unfortunate incident and Fraser Health has apologized to the family for any inconvenience and distress this may have caused. We can reassure the family and the public that we are taking this very seriously.”

Vivian Fitzpatrick (left) is shown with daughter Paddy Monroe. Fitzpatrick was sent home from Delta Hospital by cab in the middle of the night.

Century Group president Sean Hodgins explained engineers for the project expected a raft foundation would be needed, saying it’s standard practice for commercial-style buildings in the area. He said the soil is not soft but is of a low loadbearing capacity, so a wide footing is needed to ensure the weight of a building is distributed evenly. Noting soil liquefaction in places like South Delta and Richmond has been an accepted concept by engineers since the late 1950s, but only in the last couple

of decades have engineering and building practices advanced enough to adequately address the danger, professor Robert Sexsmith with UBC’s department of engineering told the Optimist there’s no doubt older multi-storey buildings are at risk. “In South Delta, they were not built anywhere near the current standard and they are a hazard. The only thing that might save many of the buildings is that a lot of them are probably one-, two-storey structures built with wood. They’re quite light and

much less likely to be badly affected by liquefaction,” Sexmith said. B.C.’s School Seismic Mitigation Program is an ongoing initiative to address higher risk school buildings. The province notes that with the 45 new projects, a total of 213 schools have either been completed, are under construction, are proceeding to construction or have been supported through the program. That leaves 102 highpriority schools still to be addressed. Geyer said there is no plan by the province to

SANDOR GYARMATI

replace older schools. “There’s money for growing districts when it comes to building new schools or doing additions, but the big problem is what if you’re a school district like ours, that has an average building school age of 40 years. We don’t see any signs of any money for replacing schools. So this (seismic upgrade) is pretty much the only mechanism now to make the buildings safer.” Building a new Delta Secondary, with all the latest earthquake standards, would cost about $80 million, Geyer said.

During a sentencing hearing last month, the young man apologized to Szendrei’s family. “I ruined the lives of so many people,” he said. “I robbed the community of its sense of safety. I’m truly, truly sorry.” Originally charged with first-degree murder, he pleaded guilty to seconddegree.

MILTON

Siamese Mix, Chocolate Brown with Blue eyes, Neutered Male Adult, (Approximately 5 years old)

Handsome Milton was surrendered to the shelter by his previous family with heavy hearts. They got Milton when he was just a kitten and raised him to be a sweet and affectionate cat. Once they decided to expand their family by adding children, Milton's temperament changed. Milton clearly longed for the days where it was just him and his people and was frightened and upset with the presence of the new family member. Milton is still quite shy and reserved here at the shelter but we believe with time and gentle handling he will learn to accept his new environment. Milton would love to go to a new home with someone who is experienced with shy cats and willing to help him go back to the old loving and cuddly man he used to be!

Red Nose in need of volunteers

One of the surest signs of the change of seasons is Operation Red Nose putting out the annual call for volunteers. Since 2002, the Delta Gymnastics Society has been the local host of the award-winning national program that strives to keep the roads safe during the holiday season while at the same time supporting amateur youth sport in the community. “On any given year, we need over 400 volunteers to provide nine nights of safe driving. This year, we estimate we need another 50

volunteers to keep up with the demand,” said Operation Red Nose co-ordinator Carlene Lewall. “We want to encourage our community to help us keep our roads and families safe by supporting this program. Invite your spouse, co-workers or friends to come one night and drive people to and from your community,” she said. “It is a fun and rewarding experience as you are actively helping to keep the roads safe during the busy holiday season; then you can go out and have fun and call Operation Red Nose - it

goes both ways.” Volunteers have to be 19 years and over and are needed to fill many positions. Areas include dispatch office, greeters, drivers and navigators. All volunteers are required to complete a criminal record check prior to participating in the program at no cost to the volunteer. All volunteers receive an orientation prior to their shift. This year Operation Red Nose, in partnership with ICBC, CTV, Richmond RCMP, Delta police and many local sponsors, will service the communities

of Delta and Richmond on Nov. 29, 30, Dec. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21 and 31 between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. All sponsorships and donations will be directed to the Delta Sports Development Centre, helping youth in the community. Last year, 409 volunteers helped provide 667 safe rides home, driving over 21,000 kilometres over the course of nine nights. “Volunteers are the basic ingredient for this excellent program to function,” said Lewall. “The added benefit is that through this service we benefit both the communities in which we live and we contribute toward amateur sports to benefit youth.” To get involved, call Delta Gymnastics at 604943-0460 or email orn@ operationrednosedelta.com.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW Efforts to save farmland are as plentiful as they are noble, but what about all the agricultural land that continues to sit fallow? It makes sense to ensure nothing gets built on a piece of land so it’s available for food production, but doesn’t the effort go for naught if that land lays dormant decade after decade? A recent Metro Vancouver survey found that 28 per cent of farmland in the southwest part of the region was identified as not being in agriculture production, even though it has the potential for farming. I guess the most important thing is that it remains untouched and can be put into production should the need arise, but at the prices being asked for farmland these days, you wonder when that day will arrive for most of these properties. I raise the issue because of the deals Delta brokered to consolidate farmland at the entrance to Tsawwassen. The municipality, which already owned one parcel, acquired another from the school district and then bought a third off the Century Group, which resulted in one contiguous, 78-acre property that will allow for the expansion of an organic farming operation. Civic officials should be commended for leading the way in getting this farmland into active production, but if it weren’t for government intervention, you wonder when, if ever, this site would have seen its next crop. Coun. Ian Paton told one of our reporters that he couldn’t remember when one of the parcels was ever farmed, which is saying something given the fact he’s been around these parts for a number of years. I know Delta has attempted to address the issue of fallow farmland and it has the ability to tax those properties at a higher rate, but unfortunately for farmland advocates, speculators just view the larger bill as the cost of doing business. The Metro Vancouver survey concluded the situation would not change “without some significant intervention.” In the case of the land at the entrance to Tsawwassen, Delta did intervene and will even eat the not-so-insignificant cost of cleaning up the property so it can be farmed. For the vast majority of other parcels, both here and throughout the region, the future isn’t nearly as bright. Delta council’s benevolence can only go so far, so turning these overgrown plots into active farms is a difficult proposition. I guess it’s better for farmland to be fallow than covered by houses, but until there’s something growing on it, the job isn’t done.

Delta residents getting snowed under by a pile of major issues IAN ROBERTSON

COMMUNITY COMMENT Hello! I’m back from a sixmonth sabbatical. It’s hard to believe I started contributing to this column back in 2005; time sure passes. My “off time” was spent working on the provincial election and then holidays in the Caribbean, Gulf Islands and Victoria as well as lots of work around our home in South Delta. During my break it’s been “snowing” in Delta. That’s right, we have been “snowed” by several matters, all coming straight at us. • Regionally, Joe Oliver, our federal minister of environment, proclaimed in May that pipeline companies henceforth would have to be able to access $1 billion for

liabilities in case of a spill. Perhaps that’s good news to B.C., but the greater risk is with tankers leaving Kitimat. There the liability is maxed out at $140 million. “So what,” you say? Well, the Exxon Valdez cleanup is $8 billion and counting and BP in the Gulf is $42 billion and counting. • If you live in Ladner, you have seen that a very effective campaign was mounted to get the ancient agreement for Marina Garden Estates freshly approved to increase the density of the remaining area. • If you live in Tsawwassen and commute, you know that a bit of a road obstacle has occurred as the South Fraser Perimeter Road is made ready to take you about three kilometres out of your way enroute to the George Massey Tunnel. • If you are wildlife lover, you may have heard and seen how the port, in an attempt to justify doubling its size, has removed what it calls log debris from the foreshore of Boundary Bay. As one expert observed: “Nonsense statements for log removal, even dead wrong statements about log removal... the

snowy owls have been so close to the dyke in recent years probably because of previous log removal further down the shore.” • If you live in Tsawwassen, you may be hearing that our neighbour to the south is about to erect massive radio towers 300 metres beyond U.S. Customs and the signal may affect various wireless devices. Our federal government thus far has “no comment.” The application to the U.S. FCC suggested no population between the border and Ladner. • Best of all, the tunnel is going to be replaced by a bridge — maybe. Details on what happens on either side to follow. In the run-up to the announcement, our premier did not consult with MLAs for Richmond or Delta. In response to why she didn’t, no answer was given. It’s too soon for details on tolls. What happens to the existing tunnel? Too soon for that too. Will Port Metro Vancouver pay the extra costs for bridge vs. second tunnel? No response. We’re being snowed upon in Delta!

October 4, 2013 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

New bridge caters to port, but drivers stuck with bill

Editor: Re: Bridge set to replace tube, Sept. 25 Does anyone else feel duped? Those community consultations were a complete sham that were set up to make us, the public, feel as if we had a say. I feel as if our government knew long ago exactly what it was going to do, which, as usual, was to cater to big business and leave us holding the bill.

If government really cared about improving “the movement of people and goods” then something should have been done long ago. I almost feel as if our government has chosen to ignore common sense and cost effective solutions to this problem because it wants the public to be so frustrated and fed up that we would welcome any plan.

Sky is falling over the Southlands Editor: Gosh, there are a lot of little chickens (oops, I meant Chicken Littles!) living in Tsawwassen, it seems. The sky is falling over the Southlands. Truck exhaust is gonna kill us, maybe even way up here in North Delta. Kids are gonna havta find a new place t’ play with their soccer balls, maybe even way up here in North Delta. There’ll be bulldozers, graders, backhoes and cranes on every street corner. And just imagine several thousand trucks idling on 56th Street every Saturday

morning. They might even go in and out of town, their brakes hissin’ all the way. But there’s a bright side. With all this activity there might even be some benefits. We can leave it to saner minds to envision what they might be when the sun continues to shine and the rain continues to fall, when the sky stays where it’s sposed t’ be and all of the wonderful ideas embodied in the proposal submitted by Century Group begin to be realized. And the developer might even turn a buck. Sinful, just plain sinful. Firth Bateman

For example, if it really wanted to relieve northbound congestion then it should have been working with the City of Richmond to utilize the visitor centre as an exit so tunnel traffic isn’t backed up because of cars lined up at the Steveston Highway exit. It angers me to listen to our elected officials blame “the tunnel” for the traffic when it isn’t the whole truth. Fine, it’s old and not

ideal, but when we are sitting in a line of cars it is not because of the tunnel itself, it is because of the inability of drivers to merge, the lights that approach the tunnel and other poorly planned infrastructure. I wish we could test my theories. Let’s just say we could. Here is what we could do for a few weeks: For northbound traffic during heavy congestion: • Reduce the speed limit

to 40 km/h or 50 km/h for educational purposes. • All cars must keep at least two car lengths from the car in front of them. • No drivers can change lanes until their lane ends. • At the top of a merge lane alternate, allowing one car to enter the “new” merged lane. • Close the exit at Steveston Highway (or use the visitors centre exit) I have no real facts to

back up my theory except for the 35 years I have spent navigating and observing this highway and tunnel, but I bet you our traffic problems would be greatly diminished. There are many smart, cost-effective things that could have been done years ago. Do not believe this bridge has anything to do with helping out regular people or small business. Krishna Sangara Hayle

How soon people forget about original plan Editor: I carefully watch the Southlands saga, which is over 40 years old now. I find that over a short period of time the people being affected seem to easily forget all the original reasons why and how the developer wanted to develop the Southlands. So, here’s a small refresher. The developer said the supposed increase in traffic on our only main road would not really increase because the development was being built close to the town core so people could walk, not drive. Yet in the

latest development proposal the housing is being shifted all the way to Boundary Bay, again with only one roadway, so people will have no choice but drive. The developer spent a great deal of money and time to try to show the land was not at all farmable and now he wants to give it to Delta so we, the people, can farm it. Who’s going to do that and how much is it going to cost us as Delta would have to administer everything? Doesn’t sound free to me. It seems like another complete reversal, which seems to be a repeat-

Southlands is compacted the way the developer needs it to be to build up the land, it will only force the water table back towards the Bay and the residents will more than likely suffer for the years to come, with probable lawsuits coming against the developer and the Corporation of Delta. Please don’t forget all the constant changes that are taking place to try to sway people to think this proposal is a good thing. As I said before, change is inevitable but not all change is for the good. Rod Maksym

ing process. To openly not care about changing the quality of life for the residents of Boundary Bay, by pushing the proposed development as far away from the town core as possible, I find completely alarming and disheartening. To date, the real issue of the water table, which is extremely high on this flood plain and which is acknowledged in the Sept. 20 issue of the Optimist, is being pushed to the side. The high salt water table causes the land not to be farmable. If, for any reason, the

Al Arbuthnot is pleased by the renovations that have taken place at The Landing Pub and Grill.

35 years for The Landing

The Landing Pub and Grill marks its 35th anniversary tomorrow with an all-day celebration. Along with food and drink specials there will be live music from dance party band March Hare and a bunch of giveaways and prizes. The band starts at 9 p.m. The pub has recently undergone major renovations, which aside from a little bit of painting, are all

complete. “It turned out really well. I’m really happy with it,” says owner Al Arbuthnot,

noting the aim was to give the pub more of a nautical theme. The entire outside of the building was redone, while inside there are a bunch of

new booths, new furniture, new flooring, a number of new TVs, a redone women’s washroom and new lighting. The work took about three months. “We’re all ready for football season and hockey season,” says Arbuthnot, who’s owned the establishment for 15 years. The Landing is located at 5449 Ladner Trunk Rd.

October 4, 2013 The Delta Optimist A13

Change is inevitable, and I’ll admit that when a company changes something that wasn’t broke, I can become slightly annoyed. I rely heavily on my phone’s calendar and it has served me well, so well in fact that I gave up my old paper calendar. Recently, like so many others, I updated my phone’s software. Most of the changes I welcomed, but the changes to the calendar I have not. I do not feel it is as efficient as it once was, and my question has been: Did they change it for change sake, because I do not see it is an improvement at all (granted, some might enjoy the changes)? Every day, life can seem to go

through so many different changes, and it can be trying at times to go through so much change. I am glad there are still some things that do not change. The sun rising in the east and setting in the west, for one, but another is the fact that God’s Word never changes. The Gospel remains the same. Scripture says I am a sinner; I do wrong things in my life. I know this, and I can never deny it, but the Gospel, tells me that God sent His Son Jesus Christ to offer me forgiveness for these sins. In a world of constant change, knowing the Gospel does not change gives me peace, comfort and hope.

Moms meet weekly at church for fellowship while kids get to play

The Well meets every Friday morning at Ladner Christian Reformed Church A local group is reaching out to other moms who’d like to come together weekly for fellowship and a safe place for their kids to play. The Well, which started as a group of moms meeting in their living rooms, gets together every Friday in the gym of Ladner Christian Reformed Church. “We want to offer a place for people in the community to come and spend some time together, and just enjoy one another’s company,” said Julie Vandermeer, a coordinator with the group. She notes it can be difficult and draining, and sometimes isolating, as a mom of young children, especially with a newborn in tow. The group hopes to be a community of Ladner

toddlers and preschoolers to play. The group meets every Friday from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. from October to June at Ladner Christian Reformed Church. There is no fee to join. After toys are cleaned up around 10:30 a.m. there will be group games or special activities followed by a few songs. The group is closed for Christmas, spring break and Good Friday.

Laramie first up for Sidekick Community theatre group starts new season with challenging play

The Sidekick Players Club is kicking off its 17th season next week with The Laramie Project, one of the most performed plays in America today. The Laramie Project delves into the horrific events that took place shortly after midnight on Oct. 7, 1998 in Laramie, Wyoming, which would become one of the most notorious anti-gay hate crimes in American history. “This has been a very emotional trip for us and has made all of us better people because of the experience,” said Carroll Lefebvre, who is directing The Laramie Project for Sidekick. “We hope the community will embrace the ‘erase hate’ message that this play sends to everyone.” The life and death of Matthew Shepard changed the way people talk about, and deal with, hate in America and around the world. Since his death, Shepard’s legacy has challenged and inspired millions of individuals to erase hate in all its forms. Although Shepard’s life was short, his story continues to have a great impact on young and old alike. His legacy lives on in thousands of people who actively fight to replace hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance. Shepard died on Oct. 12, 1998 at the age of 21 at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado with his family by his side. His memorial service was attended by friends and family from around the world and garnered immense media attention that brought Shepard’s story to the forefront of the fight against bigotry and hate.

The horrific events spawned an activist movement that, more than a decade later, would result in passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, a federal law against bias crimes directed at lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered people. Five weeks after Shepard was beaten and died, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theatre Project went to Laramie and, over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with people

“This has been a very emotional trip for us and has made all of us better people because of the experience.”

Carroll Lefebvre

of the town. From these interviews they wrote The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder. Lefebvre, who is assisted by Bernice Fehr, has assembled 22 actors from Tsawwassen, Ladner, North Delta, New Westminster, White Rock and Vancouver to portray more than 60 characters. She said the challenge for each actor is becoming several people and bringing them to life on stage. These people were and are residents of Laramie, Wyoming. There are no fictitious characters in the story. The interviews were so profound that Kaufman and the

Tectonic Theatre Company didn’t embellish them whatsoever, but just used them to form the story, which was also made into an HBO movie. Lefebvre admits it has been the most challenging play she’s ever encountered, but one that she has wanted to tackle for many years. “In this day and age, bullying is almost at epidemic proportions in our schools, the streets and in the workplace. This play deals with bullying in its extreme. If you leave the theatre without feeling something or vowing to do something about this injustice, then you just didn’t get it.” The company’s Oct. 12 performance is the 15th anniversary of Shepard’s death. The Laramie Project opens Thursday, Oct. 10 and runs until Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre, 1172-56th St. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors (60+). Seating is bistro style. Call 604288-2415 to reserve.

Cruising the Amazon cheaply BY

CHRIS MCBEATH

Optimist contributor

Chickens and bananas are also on board, so “cruise” might be a misnomer for this meander up an Amazon tributary in northern Peru, but for adventurers, it doesn’t get much better – or cheaper. Be warned: accommodation is intimately communal. Meals are whatever the tiny galley dishes up out of pots large enough for a stewed possum or two. And facilities include humidity-killer cold showers (remember, this is the steamy jungle) of murky river water. Still, if you’re armed with your own hammock, a bowl and a spoon (purchased from the market or on board), you’ll be set to experience one of the cheapest all-inclusive cruises around. Getting There Catching one of these vessels is a quest unto itself. The key is to get to Yurigamaus, a scruffy little

port town that scarcely hints to its former glory days of the rubber boom on Avenida Arica. To get there, however, you need to fly to Tarapoto, a necessary – and the only accessible – transfer point for moving on to Yurigamaus. Located in the Andean foothills in the heart of the northeastern Peruvian jungle, Tarapoto is not the most salubrious place so plan to arrive in daylight. A hoard of MotorKars will greet you at the airport, ready to rattle you across the dirt roads to a colectivo, a group of cabs that make the two-hour journey over the Cordillera Escalera Mountains to Yurigamaus with whomever they can cram into their vehicles. Once in Yurigamaus, catch a MotorKars to the muddy, rutted shore where numerous boats lie in various stages of (dis)repair and cargo loads. With a fleet of seven boats, Transportes Eduardo is your best bet for hospitality and overall water-worthiness. It’s a

more affluent travelers head for the upper deck (100 PEN/approx. US$40) where breezes and views are pretty much guaranteed. Arrive early and you have your pick of air space, but don’t get too smug because the boat doesn’t get underway until all three decks are pretty much crammed to capacity, which invariably means delayed departures. Chances are that you and your hammock will be reduced to a five-degree

swing before the loading’s done. Up Close and Personal Bumping buttocks with your neighbour makes for instant friendships, even if Spanish isn’t in your repertoire. And surprisingly, travelling in such close quarters means privacy is very much respected, and save for youngsters with a curiosity for all things foreign, your hammock space quickly becomes sacrosanct so catching up with a good book and snoozing through the afternoon is an easy bliss. All as the Amazonian jungle floats by. If you’ve purchased the all-inclusive package, three meals a day are part of the deal. Breakfast is usually a grey liquid with a floating oat or two, barely flavoured with a vanilla bean, and served with two large buttered buns. Even Oliver would be challenged to ask for more. Lunch and dinner, however, offer carbo-generous servings of rice, lima beans, potatoes, plantain and

either pieces of bony fish or scrawny chicken bought from thatched hut villages along the way. If you’re on a passage-only ticket, as most of the locals are, one yields to throngs of vendors who swarm aboard peddling everything from fresh fish to live turtles. A Timeless Adventure Watching the organized chaos of goods being loaded and unloaded is the real entertainment. The corralling of obstinate cattle and scatter-brained pigs. The stacking of endless sacks of rice and potatoes. Eggs piled as precariously high as the leaning Tower of Pisa. And stalk upon stalk of bananas, some delivered via pequepeques (small dugouts with outboard motors) that come alongside mid-river as both vessels drift in the current.

ElderCollege Delta marks its 10th anniversary this year. The organization offers a range of courses, without the pressure of exams, around South Delta for those over 50 during spring and fall semesters. “Just because you’re getting older, doesn’t mean you stop learning. You can learn something every day,” says Pat McCabe, who’s been involved with the organization for nine years, taking courses on Shakespeare as well as being part of the ElderCollege Delta Singers. In Tsawwassen, course locations tend to cluster around KinVillage Community Centre while ElderCollege has longstanding commitments from Cedar Park Church and Augustine House in Ladner. In the fall of 2003, with former Delta council member Ann Claggett as its first chairperson, ElderCollege Delta offered nine courses, notes past chair June Morin. “We had no idea what to expect and we were absolutely overwhelmed and gratified,” Morin says,

recalling the group’s first general registration. “From there it just kept growing.” There are about 25 courses on tap for the current fall semester as well as three field trips and a special public presentation in conjunction with Delta school district, says Paulette Tattersall, chairperson of ElderCollege Delta’s council. Students come from all walks of life, she says. Beth Sparks, who got involved with ElderCollege Delta last year, is recently retired and says she never

really left school, from kindergarten through to a PhD. “There’s not a thought in my mind of ever stopping learning new things,” she says. Tattersall explains that ElderCollege is a grassroots organization and “only one of two such colleges in B.C. that does not receive support from an institution of higher learning such as a college or university.” Most third-age learning colleges are supported by providing instructors and classroom space, whereas ElderCollege relies on the

HIT workouts: short and sweet p.j. wren

Well on Your Way Last March was the annual summit for the American College of Sports Medicine. These guys are the largest organization for sports medicine and exercise science. It’s this institution that helps to both advance and integrate science as it applies to physical fitness and sports medicine. In other words, when it speaks, we should listen. At the summit, one of the trending topics was high intensity training, otherwise known as HIT. Presented as confirmed and concise science was that high intensity training was far more superior than continuous steady-state exercise for physiological benefits. What the heck does that mean for you and I? It means that intense, yet shorter, workouts will elicit far greater returns to our aerobic and anaerobic fitness, our ability to burn calories both during and after

by? New Ba

New In Town? siness? New Bu If so... a warm welcome awaits you from your representative and the local merchants. Call...

Community Welcome Ladner Joadey - 604-940-0177 Tsawwassen Sandi - 604-940-9717 Baby Welcome Ladner & Tsawwassen Sandi - 604-940-9717

...we look forward to

meeting you soon.

the workout is completed and it achieves a far better fat burning result. High intensity training will also stimulate our muscle-building hormones like growth hormone and IGF-5, putting our bodies into the perfect state to build lean muscle mass. When incorporating a HIT workout into your regime, I recommend you first start on a treadmill with a heart rate monitor on. You need to understand and feel how hard you need to work, and a treadmill is

one of the easiest ways to control your environment. To train at a HIT intensity, the recommended training heart rate is 85 per cent of your maximum. This is not a heart rate that most people are used to, so it will be uncomfortable and challenging. On the flip side, you only need to be at that heart rate for a short duration. A HIT workout cycles between periods of intense exercise and periods of active recovery. These are called intervals and each intense interval

can be anywhere from 20 seconds to two minutes (maximum), with your active recovery time double whatever work time you choose. How long you choose to do a HIT is up to you and your current level of fitness. Beginners may want to start with four to 10 minutes, working themselves up to the maximum of 30 to 40 minutes. Don’t think that this is just for athletes, either. Anyone can perform a HIT workout, regardless of your current level of fitness.

What changes is how fast you go. A fit person may have to increase their treadmill speed to 10 mph (to achieve their 85 per cent target), while a new exerciser may only need to be at 3 mph with a four per cent hill to reach theirs. Wear a heart rate monitor and listen to your body. Once you get a feel for what intensity you need to be at, start adding this principle to other types of exercise. All of my group classes are HIT workouts using both body weight and

dumbbells. I am able to achieve great results for my people with this technique – and I train all ages and levels of fitness. Give a HIT workout a try and start seeing results once again with your exercise program. PJ Wren is the fitness half of the Go Fit Gals team, as well as a local personal trainer. Check out her HIT workouts on Delta TV, Channel 4, Monday to Friday at 7 a.m., 1 p.m. or 6 p.m. Or join her program www.fitnesswithpj.com.

New Homes Registry Keeps Homebuyers Informed This helpful, easy-to-use, online resource is available from the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) website at www.hpo.bc.ca. Savvy homebuyers are using it to make more informed purchasing decisions. The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it’s built without home warranty insurance. Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an ownerbuilt home can be legally offered for sale. Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. For free access to the New Homes Registry visit the Homebuyers section of the HPO website.

Sun Devils season off to soggy start Senior girls field hockey team should be among best in B.C. once weather starts to cooperate The way the high school field hockey season has started for the South Delta Sun Devils, they might want to do their training at the Winskill Aquatic Centre. The powerhouse senior girls program is a solid bet to be contending again at the provincial “AAA” championships come November. Longtime head coach Neil McLennan has a veteran roster to work with that includes eight seniors and six Grade 11s. “We have good overall speed and some very skilled players but we just have to learn to play together and learn what it will take to be successful as a team at the AAA level,” said McLennan. With just one league game under their belt, the Sun Devils headed to Duncan last weekend for Cowichan secondary’s annual John Ferreira Memorial Tournament. South Delta was part of the four team premier division that included No. 1 ranked “AA” Shawnigan Lake, the No. 2 ranked “AAA” host team and two other Island schools — Frances Kelsey and Isfeld. The Devils opened play by battling Shawnigan Lake to a scoreless draw in a driving rain storm. “We had many chances to score and had Shawingan hemmed in their own end for extended periods especially for the last 10 to 12 minutes of the game

Cailean Meredith and South Delta Sun Devils ran past the Elgin Park Orcas in Fraser Valley Senior Girls AAA Field Hockey League action on Tuesday at Winskill Park. when we were really putting on the pressure,” noted McLennan. “We generated good movement towards the goal but could not get the final touch.” The heavy rain continued and would eventually take its toll on the tournament. In South Delta’s next encounter against Frances Kelsey, standing water on

the field made it very difficult to dribble and pass the ball. By halftime, the game was called due to dangerous conditions and went into the books as a scoreless draw. The Sun Devils faced Cowichan Sunday morning with the rain still coming down. The locals got off to an encouraging start

and just failed to convert a couple of penalty corners in the opening minutes. The hosts then struck in the late stages of the opening half on their own penalty corner. The Devils pressed in the second half and enjoyed the territorial edge but lacked finish in what turned out to be a 1-0 loss. South Delta then domi-

nated Isfeld in a 4-0 win before closing out a busy weekend with an impressive 5-0 result in a rematch with Kelsey. Sunday night’s windstorm resulted in B.C. Ferries canceling all sailings. The team stayed an extra night and was up at 3 a.m. to take the first ferry back to Tsawwassen.

Ice Hawks continue where they left off in September with win over Wolf Pack The Delta Ice Hawks have begun a new month the same way they ended the previous one. Unbeaten. An unassisted goal from Tsawwassen’s Michael Olson in the final minute of the opening period proved to be the winner as the Ice Hawks

doubled the North Vancouver Wolf Pack 4-2 on Tuesday night at the Ladner Leisure Centre. The victory improved Delta’s record to 6-0-0-1, heading into tonight’s road tilt against the Abbotsford Pilots. The Hawks return home Tuesday to host the Port Moody Panthers at 7:30 p.m.

Captain Marc Letourneau provided some breathing room with a shorthanded tally in the early stages of the third period after Brent Chreptyk and Karsten Seidel had opened the scoring. Scott Lapp turned away 20 shots for the win as the Hawks outshot the visitors 32-22.

Greater Vancouver Canadians squandered a two goal third period lead in a 6-5 loss to the Cariboo Cougars in B.C. Major Midget Hockey League action last Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Prince George squad swept the weekend series.

EXCLUSIVE TO RICHMOND CHRYSLER

The Greater Vancouver Canadians came away with nothing more than a couple of painful lessons from their regular season home opener series against Cariboo Cougars last weekend. After seeing a third period rally come up short in a 4-3 loss Saturday to the Prince George squad, the Canadians squandered a late two goal lead 24 hours later in a 6-5 setback. The results leave the regional rep team with a 2-2 record in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. “That was a tough one to lose Saturday after battling back the way we did and then we turned around and handed them the game on Sunday,” said Canadians head coach Phil Alalouf. “We didn’t play 60 minutes of hockey in either game. The only bright spot is I rather be giving away points at the start of the season, where you are at least learning something from it, than at the end of year.” The Cougars looked to on their way to an easy win in the series opener thanks

to a pair of goals in the first and second periods. Ryan Wilkinson finally put the hosts on the board three minutes into the final stanza and Nathan McCarnan struck again just 10 seconds later. Dante Hannoun made it 4-3 with 8:53 remaining but the hosts would get no closer. The Canadians seemed poised to earn a weekend split when Hannoun’s goal with 11:41 remaining gave his team a 5-3 lead. However, the Cougars answered just 27 seconds later on a spectacular effort by Brogan O’Brien. Jesse Roach put his team on even terms less than two minutes later, then beat Sergio DelLinz for the game winner. The Canadians entered the weekend unbeaten. “The way things had been going I think many of these young kids thought they were all that and a ham sandwich,” added Alalouf. “You have to remember a lot of them come (from Bantam teams) that basically never lost. This was a real eye opener for them.”

Focus is on preventing kitchen fires

Fire officials are using Fire Prevention Week, which runs from Oct. 6 to 12 this year, to remind residents to prevent kitchen fires. During this year’s Fire Prevention Week, fire departments will be spreading the word about the dangers of kitchen fires, most of which result from unattended cooking, and teach residents how to prevent kitchen fires from starting in the first place. According to the latest National Fire Protection Association research, cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Two of every five home fires begin in the kitchen, more than any other place in the home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home firerelated injuries. Among the safety tips

that firefighters and safety advocates will be emphasizing: • Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling or boiling food. • If you must leave the room, even for a short time, turn off the stove. • When you are simmering, baking or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home and use a timer to remind you. • If you have young children, use the stove’s back burners whenever possible.

Keep children and pets away from the stove. • When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting sleeves. • Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper and plastic bags, towels and anything else that can burn, away from your stovetop.

Kitchen fires are often the most destructive

Kitchen fires due to cooking oil or grease igniting into flames cause the fastest-spreading and most destructive type of residential fire. When cooking with grease or oil, it is extremely important you plan ahead so you will know how to react fast to fire. Here are some tips: Deep Frying • The safest way to deep fry foods such as chicken or fries is to use a thermostatically-controlled electric skillet or a deep fat fryer. Pan Frying • Keep a pan lid or cookie sheet handy in case grease or oil catches fire. The lid or cookie sheet should be slid over the top of the pan to smother the

fire. • Never attempt to move a flaming pot or pan away from the stove. The movement can fan the flames and spread the fire. The pan will also likely be very hot, causing you to drop it. In either case, you are placing yourself at great risk. Your immediate action should be to smother the fire by sliding a lid or flat cookie sheet over the pan. Oven Cooking • Keep your oven clean. Grease and food splatters can ignite at high temperatures. • Ensure you wear oven mitts when removing cooking containers to avoid serious burns. • When you use your

broiler, place the rack five to eight centimetres (two to three inches) from the broiler element. Always place a drip pan beneath the broiler rack to catch the fat drippings. Never use aluminum foil for this purpose because the fat accumulated on the foil could catch fire or spill over. Microwave Cooking Microwave ovens are a marvelous time-saving tool, but there are three characteristics you should be cognizant of: • The heat is reflected by the metal interior. • Heat can pass through glass, plastic and other materials. • Heat is absorbed by the food.

Fire Safety Tips When cooking in the Kitchen:

• When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you. • If you have young children, use the stove’s back burners whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the stove. • Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can burn, away from your stovetop. • Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food. • Clean up food and grease from burners and stovetops • If you must leave the room, even for a short period of time, turn off the stove. • When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting sleeves.

Develop an escape plan to keep family safe

Statistics reveal that 78 per cent of deaths from fire occur in the home, with most of the fatalities taking place between 2 and 4 a.m. while occupants are asleep. That’s why it’s critical to develop an escape plan, because one needs to react quickly since with a fire: In addition to developing and practicing a fire escape plan, here are some steps to follow: • Install smoke alarms on every level. Keep smoke alarms clean and dust-free, checking them monthly. Replace batteries yearly and alarms every 10 years. • In order to be able to react quickly to fire, draw a floor plan of your home showing all possible exits from each room. • Where possible, plan two exits: a main route and an alternate route from each room. • Since the majority of fire deaths occur while you are sleeping, you should practice your plan at night as well, getting down on your hands and knees with

a flashlight while crawling to safety. Heavy smoke impairs breathing, which is why staying close to the floor increases chances of escape. • Make certain that everyone understands that if they hear the smoke alarm, or someone shouting “fire,” they should immediately evacuate the home. • Designate a meeting place outside your home in the event of a fire. • Small children unable to escape should be taught to open their windows and wave an article of clothing to attract attention. Instruct them to wait at the window until someone comes and to never hide from the fire. Discuss with a fire department official whether an escape ladder would be appropriate to install. • Sleep with doors closed. If children are frightened, parents can close doors after the children fall asleep and use a room monitor to hear them during the night. • If awakened by a smoke

alarm or a fire, instruct family members to feel the door for heat and check air at the bottom. If you don’t smell smoke and the air is cool, kneel and open the door slowly, turning your face away from the opening. If smoke is present or the door is hot, use another exit. • Purchase an A-B-C fire extinguisher, whose rating is based on the fuel: “A” originates from a wood or paper fire, “B” is caused by flammable liquids and “C” is an electrical fire. Learn how to use this fire extinguisher by remembering the acronym PASS: Pull the pin, Aim the extinguisher, Squeeze or press the handle and Sweep side-to-side at the base of the fire. • If you live in an apartment building, develop your escape plan taking into account fire escape procedures provided by building management. • Practice your escape plan. Regular practice is essential so every family member knows what to do.

E-Comm fire dispatchers offer reminders

For the majority of people, a kitchen is the most used room in the house, the place where everyone gathers to eat, catches up at the end of the day or entertains guests. It’s also where most house fires start. With Fire Prevention Week and Thanksgiving around the corner, EComm’s fire dispatch team is reminding home chefs to take proper cooking precautions to reduce kitchen hazards. “One of the most common 9-1-1 fire calls we receive are from people who have accidently left a boiling pot on the stove,” says Trish McMurray, EComm fire dispatcher. “The results can be devastating; please don’t ever leave a pot unattended on the stove or go out of the house while food is cooking in the oven.” Kitchen fires are the fastest-spreading and most destructive type of residential fire. From burning cakes to flaming turkeys and boiling water mishaps, the number one cause of residential fires originates in the kitchen.

E-Comm fire dispatchers regularly receive calls about fires that have started in the kitchen. E-Comm’s fire dispatchers receive all kinds of calls from people experiencing dangerous situations in the kitchen. Topping the list as the main culprit of kitchen fires are hot oil or grease fires and boiling water left on the stove for too long. Oven fires are also a

major concern along with microwaves, which can result in a fire when nonmicrowavable dishes are used or when someone accidently sets the timer on their microwave for one hour instead of just one minute. Another danger is when

people wear loose clothing while cooking that can become flammable if it touches a hot element. “Recently we had a call from a person who microwaved a beanbag (used for sore muscles) for two hours instead of two minutes, causing extensive smoke

damage,” says Jennifer Gjaltema, E-Comm fire dispatch manager. “Luckily no one was hurt, but this is a prime example of just how fast something so simple can go extremely wrong. Taking steps to prevent fires from starting in your kitchen can

be life-saving.” Whether it’s a boiling pot, faulty wire or hot surface, reducing risks in your kitchen can be simple — and it all starts with being mindful of surroundings. Remember to keep your appliances serviced and clean. Always set a timer and never leave anything on the burner unattended; if you have to leave for a few moments, make sure you turn off all appliances in use. When you cook, keep pot handles turned towards the back of the stove to avoid someone accidentally knocking them over. And make sure your family has access to a portable fire extinguisher before they begin cooking their next feast. E-Comm 9-1-1 provides dispatch for 18 fire departments in southwest B.C., including Delta, and answers nearly one million 9-1-1 calls each year for Metro Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast, Whistler, Pemberton and the southern Squamish-Lillooet Regional District.

Does your household have a fire safety checklist? Make sure your household is prepared – test your smoke alarms; have an evacuation plan in place and ensure all escape routes are clear of clutter and easily accessible.

Smoke greater danger than flames Hundreds of people die in residential fires in Canada every year. In many fires that have been extinguished in their early stages, people have been found dead of smoke inhalation without having suffered burns. It has been conservatively estimated that many of these lives could have been saved by the installation of

properly functioning smoke alarms. Although these devices are no substitute for carefully planned fire prevention measures, they are invaluable to providing an early warning when fire strikes. Smoke is the cause of the majority of fire-related deaths. Hot flames are low on the list of killers during a fire. A smouldering

fire may go undetected for hours, especially while people are asleep. In addition to deadly carbon monoxide, smoke carries poisons such as hydrogen cyanide and irritants such as formaldehyde and acetic acid. Added to this lethal potion are other toxic substances that come from the burning of synthetic materials.

Don’t let kids get burned by their curiosity

Every year in Canada, severe injuries and deaths occur as a result of burns and scalds. Sadly, many of these injuries affect children and could have easily been prevented. Usually, it’s children’s curiosity that gets them into trouble. They come across a lighter or matches, or they manage to get too close to a baseboard heater or a hot stove element. Burns from Hot Liquids • When bathing children, always turn cold water on first before the hot. Test the water temperature before allowing your child to get into the bathtub or shower. Consider adjusting your hot water heater to a maximum temperature of 49°C or 120°F. • Children should not play with a hot water tap. Teach them to turn the cold water on first. • Avoid carrying or holding children while you are drinking a hot beverage. Burns from Household Appliances • Turn pot handles towards the centre of the stove. • Keep cords for electrical appliances such as deep fryers, kettles, steam irons and toasters out of the reach of children.
