Volunteers

Giving continues past ninety Women help out with community events and fundraising well into their retirement years. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Isobel Forgues is 91 and Anna Fogg is 94, but they are still giving their time in their communities. On Wednesday morning, Fogg was busy making perogies with the ladies auxiliary at the Maple Ridge branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, raising money for a variety of charities that the group supports. Meanwhile, Forgues was recovering from a four-hour shift on Canada Day at Spirit Square in Pitt Meadows where she is often in charge of cutting up and serving the cake. For 35 years, Fogg has volunteered with the legion’s women’s auxiliary, joining shortly after her husband, a Second World War veteran and legion member, passed away.

In March, the group started making perogies for charity, and Rose Schrul, president of the auxiliary, estimated they’ve sold about 250 dozen of them so far. On Wednesday, there were eight ladies assembling them in the basement of the legion, and Fogg was helping fill them with potato and cheddar cheese filling. Fogg comes to the legion regularly and used to help with the meat draws until her hearing started getting worse. But she continues to help out the ladies auxiliary wherever she can. “It gives me something to keep me occupied...” she said. Fogg said it’s important for seniors to stay involved in the community, and she plans to keep volunteering “as long as I can keep moving... otherwise you get so isolated,” she said. “I think it’s important to keep moving as long as you can,” she added. Fogg grew up in Alberta, but moved to Maple Ridge in 1942, where she brought up her four children. The regular cake-cutter at the Pitt

Meadows Canada Day celebrations, Forgues spent hours at Spirit Square on Monday, making sure attendees received their Canada Day birthday cake despite the scorching heat. “I like to get out – I love the people,” Forgues said about why she gives her time to community events. Forgues has lived in Pitt Meadows for about 25 years, and at 91 she likes to help at several community events. Forgues volunteered for 12 years with the tourism office in Pitt Meadows, answering the phones, talking with visitors, giving them directions, and pointing them to local attractions. The Pitt Meadows Library also benefited from her volunteerism, Forgues said. She also helped out at Pitt Meadows Elementary when her grandson attended. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 88 ladies auxiliary are selling their perogies for $6 per dozen with proceeds going to a variety of charities. To buy perogies from the ladies auxiliary, call Rose Schrul at 604-466-5608.

A chlorine gas leak at Maple Ridge’s leisure centre forced the evacuation of about 300 people on Tuesday, although the actual leak was “contained in the storage room,” reported assistant fire chief Howard Exner. “When we arrived on scene,” said Exner, “they [leisure centre staff] had the evacuation almost complete.” He noted that the staff at the centre had revamped their evacuation routine after an incident last summer. The fire department suggested the leisure centre staff spend their time getting people out, rather than going to inspect where and why the alarm is going off. When the fire department arrived, it found the chlorine level “quite high,” put on Level A chemical protective clothing, and set up a decontamination area, said Exner. Firefighters turned the building back over to staff at the leisure centre two hours after receiving the initial alarm at 5:40 p.m. WorkSafe BC had written compliance orders as a result of previous two leaks in November 2011, requiring work to be done to ensure the safety of people using the facilities. Those orders have been complied with, said Fred Armstrong, District of Maple Ridge communications manager. “It’s an inconvenience for the customer,” he said. “We take every precaution. A couple of classes were cancelled, but bottom line is you can’t compromise on safety.”

Adstock

A favourite event with a younger, alt-music crowd is Adstock, which takes place this Sunday at Memorial Peace Park from 1 to 8 p.m. Its tagline is “No booze, drugs, or jerks.” When Adam Rayburn turned 18, he held a party at home with live bands – his father insisted

he give it a name and write invitations so that the party at their rural Pitt Meadows home wouldn’t be crashed. Rayburn thought up the name Adstock, combining his first name with Woodstock. After a few years of celebrating his birthday in the same way, Rayburn thought it would be fun to open up the event to the public, and nine years later, Adstock has become an annual Maple Ridge event. As in years past, Rayburn has lined up a mix of more established bands with the youngest, most local bands he can find. There are a few vendors at Adstock, but generally there isn’t much economic return for them. “The very young and alternative youth tend not to have a lot of money,” Rayburn said. The headliner at Adstock will be Ninjaspy, a band that played every year at the festival until last year, and Rayburn thinks the crowd will be happy that they’re returning this year. Also lined up for Sunday’s performance are Abriosis, The Easy Brothers, The Bone Daddies, Damn the Eyes, Within the Hours, Guts and Glory, and Mountain Man.

Maple Ridge council

Mayor calls for mediator A rookie councillor maintains that the council environment is “toxic.” by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge Councillor Corisa Bell said she was “astonished” by a letter sent to The TIMES, written by the mayor of Maple Ridge, to clarify recent tensions. Ernie Daykin sent Corisa Bell the letter last week, Maple Ridge Councillor stating that he wasn’t pursuing a request by Bell to suspend the District’s chief administrative officer, saying “there are no grounds for a suspension.” He added that Jim Rule is the “consummate professional whose 30 years of experience are a valuable asset for our community and our council.” In his letter – directed to the editor – Daykin said council “encourages respectful and vigorous debate and discussion.” He added that he allows the “greatest latitude” in debates, and then when the discussion is over, a vote is taken and they move to the next item. [Much of the mayor’s letter, edited for length, appears in today’s Letters forum.] But Bell said she feels comments made in council are “more personal” and directed toward her. “We’re in a professional work environment and I’m just doing my job,” Bell said. She feels the process about her complaint has been “appalling,” but support

from the public has been positive, Bell said. “They don’t want me to stop doing what I’m doing,” she said, adding that she won’t. But Daykin told The TIMES that, around the council table, there is some “stress and tension,” and councillors take strong positions. “When someone disagrees with me, I don’t think that they don’t respect me or don’t like me – we have a different opinion,” he said. Daykin is hoping Bell’s complaint about the District’s CAO can be resolved with a third-party mediator. He would like to see a “positive working relationship” restored. Daykin added he believes all of council wants to get on with Ernie Daykin the work of the municipality, and he’d like Maple Ridge Mayor to find a “respectful” process to let them do that. But Bell said she thinks Daykin is glossing over the tensions at council. “It’s not fine at council... it’s a toxic environment,” Bell said. In what Daykin calls an “unrelated” matter that took place a week after Bell’s complaint about the District’s CAO, a video recording of a committee of the whole meeting was pulled of the District’s website on advice from legal counsel. That issue was discussed in a closed council meeting on Tuesday morning, but Bell said she left the meeting because she thought it should be dealt with in the open.

Our View

CounterAttack saves lives The summer CounterAttack got underway this weekend. Ridge Meadows RCMP have already thwarted six potentially deadly drivers in this season’s offensive launched against offensive drivers. That’s significant, not only for the lucky people who weren’t killed by drunk and other dangerous drivers, but in a historical context – ICBC reports that traffic crashes claim an average of three lives Scan this in B.C. every Canada page with Day, kicking off what has become the worst season of the year for drinking and driving fatalities and injuries. CounterAttack is aimed especially at drivers who persist in drinking before taking their place behind the wheel of a vehicle – but police aren’t picky, they’ll do their best to clear the roads of any drivers who put their own and others’ lives in jeopardy with their offensive driving habits. Along with alcohol, distractions and impatience result in death and injury all over the province’s roads. Plan ahead for your summer trips. Don’t leave matters to the last minute. For instance, if there’s a ferry in your schedule, be aware of the ferry schedule – give yourself plenty of time to get there, so you don’t feel pressured into excessive speed or risky behaviour on the roads. Leave your cellphone in your pocket. Although hands-free devices are legal, studies show that they increase the risk of being involved in an accident to the same level as hand-held devices – so pull over to take the call (or let it wait… how important is your life, or the lives of those sharing your vehicle or the road?). And save the booze for after you get where you’re going. – B.G.

Meadowridge students recently released 500 salmon into a creek that they had been cleaning up since December. This was the first time salmon were released by Meadowridge School and it is part of an effort to clean up and rehabilitate Latimer Creek, which runs through a recently acquired property next to the school. “Latimer Creek is a class A watercourse which provides habitat for a variety of fish species including rainbow and cutthroat trout and coho and chum salmon,” said Lyn Tyler, the private school’s director of development. The students and staff

have been rehabilitating the creek in partnership with the Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) and other community groups since December. They have received grants from the Vancity Community Fund and RBC Blue Water Project, and help from Eco-system Restoration Associates. The rehabilitation efforts include removing invasive plants, for example, morning glory and blackberries, and planting native plants like vine maple, salmonberry, skunk cabbage, rhododendrons, sword ferns, as well as native trees. “The restoration is going well, but we are constantly working on ways to stop the Himalayan blackberry from reclaiming the Meadowridge junior kindergarten area,” Tyler said. student Tessa Rebele, assisted There is also come debby ARMS volunteer Cliff Olsen, ris in the creek that needs released a salmon into Latimer to be removed, Tyler Creek, behind Meadowridge School. added.

itt Meadows business people can now take advantage of a new directory to feature their businesses. A new business directory is currently populated with basic information for Pitt Meadows businesses with active licences. Pitt Meadows Economic Development Corporation (PMEDC – online at http://www.thinkpittmeadows.ca/) recently sent a mail-out to business owners to let them know how to access the easy-to-use directory, and how to optimize their listings, including how to connect with them through their social media profiles. We’re pleased to have this directory in place, as it serves multiple purposes. Not only does it assist local businesses with their marketing initiatives, it also assists entrepreneurs and investors who are looking for a community to locate their business, and to find out what types of businesses are already located in Pitt Meadows. We encourage our local businesses to optimize their listings, or to connect with our office if they didn’t receive the mailed information and require assistance accessing the directory. We’re actively promoting the directory through our social media channels, so optimize your listing today.

The doghouse goes gold. BC SPCA’s Community Animal Centre in Maple Ridge has become Canada’s first gold-level LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited animal shelter. This ground-breaking project, created in partnership with the District of Maple Ridge, provides a model for other sustainable shelters across the country. “It’s a major accomplishment for the BC SPCA and something we’re very proud of,” said Bob Busch, general manager of operations for the BC SPCA. “We want to be a leader in incorporating environmentally friendly, sustainable building practices in our facilities.” Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the internationally recognized LEED rating system promotes sustainability by recognizing perform-

ance in the areas of site development, green building design, water and energy efficiency, materials selection, and improved indoor environmental quality. As well as incorporating modern animal welfare designs such as shared “apartments” for dogs to increase socialization and a sophisticated ventilation system to reduce the spread of airborne disease, the 6,500-square-foot Maple Ridge facility features a range of green components. They include movement-triggered room light sensors, programmable thermostats to reduce heating costs, rooftop rainwater collection for recycling, a light reflective roof membrane, and heat recovery built into the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system. Dark light technology has even been put in place in the parking lot to prevent its lights from shining at night on nearby residential areas. “I think that every business has a responsibility to be a good corporate citizen, and non-profits should help lead the way in using recycled building materials and being cognizant of their effect on the environment,” said Busch. “We’re trying to ensure that our environmental footprint is as small as possible.”

Developing Ideas

Survey

The PMEDC is reaching out to the community through a business survey (http://www. thinkpittmeadows.ca/cgi/page. cgi/Business_Survey.html). Results from the survey will provide the PMEDC staff with a good snapshot about operating a business in Pitt Meadows, any challenges businesses may be facing, and the types of services and programs the local business community would like to gain access to. Although the PMEDC has a successful business visitation program in place, where staff meet business owners oneon-one, this short survey will allow staff to increase their

reach to business owners and to help identify those who are requiring further assistance. To access the survey, please visit http://www.thinkpittmeadows.ca. There’s an option to enter to win a $75 gift certificate to a Pitt Meadows business of your choice available for those who complete the survey.

Invest North Fraser

Invest North Fraser (http:// www.investnorthfraser. com/), an economic initiative of Maple Ridge, Mission, and Pitt Meadows, is spearheading a project to increase the wholesale distribution of True North Fraser (http://www. thinkpittmeadows.ca/True_ North_Fraser.html) agricultural food products in the Metro Vancouver region. We are undertaking a prefeasibility assessment to determine the level of interest and potential behind increasing the value of the regional agriculture and food economy. We anticipate this work will lead to new ways for connecting local growers with local buyers, supporting and investing in the local agricultural community, and providing a factual basis for determining the functions and operating structure of an AgriFood Distribution Hub in Pitt Meadows. If you’re a local grower or producer, we encourage you to complete the short survey. And on the other side, if you’re a potential buyer for local product, please contact Malinda MacKinnon at 604460-6720 for further information. – Kate Zanon is the CEO of Pitt Meadows Economic Development and the Director of Business and Corporate Services for the City of Pitt Meadows.

ervice Canada was one of five winners in the Show Your Colours for Canada Day contest put on by the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association. Cheryll Heroux, the government agent at the Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services office said the staff did all of the decorations in red and white maple leaves and

Canadian flags. “They have lots of creativity. They like to get into the spirit of things,” she said. On Friday the judging committee selected the winners. La Belle Chateau Consignment on 224th Street and Bibles For Mission tied for using red and white products to decorate their stores’ windows. Seamless Alterations won for the best mural or painting. And Kitchen on the Ridge tied with Service BC for their Canadianthemed windows. Out of 21 entries the BIA chose five winners, instead of three. “Overall it was quite a good show of spirit,” said the BIA’s Lynn Good.

New online tool used A new online self-help tool is being offered by Consumer

Protection BC and will offer consumers a modern and alternative way to resolve disputes with businesses. It is called Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). Businesses that participate in ODR show their commitment to their customers and dedication to customer service. During the ODR process, custemers and businesses work together to reach a mutually agreed-upon resolution. In specific situations, Consumer Protection BC, acting as a neutral third party, can be used to lend assistance and mediation. ODR can be complementary to other complaint-handling processes that businesses may already have in place. For more information about the ODR program, go to: www. resolveyourdispute.ca

Outside space

Safety first in deck-building

A

nyone who owns a home, a townhouse or condominium will, eventually, want to create an outdoor space for eating, entertaining, and just plain living. We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, and though we do endure our fair share of rain, there are many weeks and months when we can live and enjoy time outside. Whether you’re able to have a stone patio, one with pavers or rock, an area with gravel, mulch, gardens, and possibly even a water feature, most of us are going to want a deck area where we can set up a table and some chairs, our barbecue, and even some planters. Decks are on virtually thousands of minds at this time of year, and yet many of us don’t know enough about how to build them, and with what material. Here are a few tips and ideas that may help: 1. Every deck needs to be durable and safe, first of all. Before we put anything on top, we need to build the supporting structure that will keep it all safe, strong, and level. Whether you’re building a deck with boards and spaces, called a “weeping deck,” or one with plywood and vinyl, a “solid surface” deck, the framing has to be right. Although the building code allows for somewhat wide spacing of joists, I always recommend at least 16 inches on centre, a maximum span of eight feet, and the use of 2x8s or 2x10s over a triple beam supported by 6x6 posts. Naturally a ground level deck requires less support, but I still feel the joist spacing should be 16 inches on centre, or even 12 inches on centre. The extra cost to build it stronger is minimal, potentially only 10 to 20 per cent of the total expense. The larger the deck, the more framing extras are needed, as well, like cross blocking, double joists in key places, and additional posts. 2. The choice of decking is important before you start framing, but most materials will require the same framing, except some of the newer, manmade products, such as Trex and EON decking. Deck boards that are not wood, and not a full inch and a half thick, will require additional joists, with a minimum spacing of 12 inches on centre. Treated decking, often called five-

quarter decking, which is only an inch and a quarter thick, should really be placed on 12-inch centres as well. Cedar decking, a beautiful product visually for decks, is not a strong material structurally, and will also need extra support. 3. As far as practicality of different types of decking, like the durability and how it will wear, you have to ask yourself some key questions. How will the deck be used? How often and by how many people? Will it be subjected to animals, children, furniture, barbecues, weather, sun, and pressure washing? The softer woods, like cedar and even hemlock, will not wear as well as the harder ones, like fir. The manmade products will also vary in toughness and durability, often reflected by how expensive they are, but also by the way they’re made. I am not a big fan of the “composite” decking, the deck boards that are made with a mix of wood pulp and plastic or resin, simply because they can still mould and deteriorate in areas that are shaded and consistently wet. The manmade products I like are made with virgin vinyl only, or at least coated with a tough, weather resistant surface, like EON and the higher-end Trex product line. 4. The design, placement, and even the slope of your deck are important, not just for the way it looks, but also for the way it works and lasts. Weeping decks should never collect water on the boards or be sloped the wrong way. I always try to “picture frame” decks with boards so that the ends are less exposed to the elements, and it usually looks nicer, too. 5. Solid surface decking used to include vinyl and fiberglass, even the roll-on type of material you could apply yourself, but today’s building code does not support most of those products any longer. Any second-floor or higher deck attached to your home that is not going to be a weeping, or board, deck, now falls under the roofing portion of the code. This means that any solid surface material applied to the plywood must be of roof membrane quality, such as 60 mil vinyl, torch-on roofing, or some other sort of heavy, waterproof, code-compliant material. As you can see, you have to do your homework

Fix It Up

and be educated about what you plan to do in and around your home. Your insurance agent and your insurance provider need to know when you build a deck, as well, especially any deck above ground level, because the liability risk for your home will be increased. If you build an unsafe deck, one that does not meet minimum building code requirements, then you’re putting yourself and your family and friends at risk. I’m not trying to scare you, just stating the facts.

Rage 99, one of 11 rep teams from the Ridge Meadows Minor Softball Association, played in the Acer’s Northwest Classic June 1 and 2 in Seattle. There were more than 130 local players participating, which accounted for a large percentage of the 400 players in attendance that weekend. The Rage 99 team posed after a game, to have their picture taken with a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES. In the meantime, Yennadon area resident Alison Pocock had her picture taken holding a copy of The TIMES next to her brother Grant, who was catching some sleep poolside during their visit to Disneyland in Anaheim, Calf., recently.

Women’s golf

B.C. title win at Pitt Meadows Golf Club Cassy Isagawa brought the Flumerfelt Cup across the border as the B.C. women’s amateur champion.

Cassy Isagawa will be bringing Flumerfelt Cup accolades across the border as the 2013 B.C. women’s amateur golf champion. The provincial tournament wrapped up Friday at the par 74, 6,200-yard Pitt Meadows Golf Club. Isagawa, originally from Wailuku, Hawaii but now a resident of Eugene, Oregon while attending the University of Oregon, matched her third-round course record six-under-par 68 in her final round to post a miracu-

lous 16-under-par 280 total (7074-68-68). After a rough start on the parfive 500-yard first hole, one in which she birdied two out of her three previous days, Isagawa exploded for five birdies and an eagle over her next 17 holes, solidifying the victory that would allow her to bring a gold medal across the border as proof of her dominance. Isagawa eagled the par-five 405-yard eighth hole for the second day in a row and ended up posting a four-round total of sixunder-par on that hole alone over the week. Her back-to-back record-setting 68s were exactly what she needed to catch and surpass the eventual runner-up Soo-Bin Kim of Port Coquitlam.

Newly crowned B.C. amateur women’s golf champion Cassy Isagawa held up the Flumerfelt Cup following her tournament win Friday at Pitt Meadows Golf Club. “Today I wanted to just wanted to have fun and play my best and make sure I didn’t bogey seven

again,” laughed Isagawa following Friday’s victory. “I just had fun out there and I am really glad I had an awesome group today.” Isagawa was playing with Kim, her college-golf friend, and Kelowna’s Megan Osland. Asked what winning the B.C. title meant to her as the only known international champion in its history, Isagawa was all smiles. “It means a lot, it really does. I am really hoping I can encourage Americans and people from everywhere else to come play this tournament because it really is a great tournament and I enjoyed it.” It wasn’t complete smooth sailing for Isagawa as Kim kept it very close throughout the day. At one point in her round she got it all the way to minus-12 before making an unfortunate double bogey on the final hole to post minus-10 overall (72-71-71-72286). This is Kim’s second runner-up in-a-row in the women’s amateur, as she lost to Richmond’s Christine Wong in last year’s competition at Christina Lake Golf Club. Finishing tied for third place were a pair of Team Canada national team members in Wong and Taylor Kim of Surrey. As a result of their fine play in this years’ Championship, Team BC members heading to the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship, July 2326, at the Club de Golf Beloeil in Beloeil, Que., are Wong, Taylor Kim, and Osland. Kind words were mentioned following the closure of the championship by the title holder Isagawa, none more thoughtful that her praise of Pitt Meadows Golf Club. “I really enjoyed this golf course. It is really beautiful as it is so I would love to play it when it was a nice day,” Isagawa said. “I am really glad I came up to play this tournament.” British Columbia Golf thanked the staff, management and board of directors of Pitt Meadows Golf Club for their gracious hospitality over the course of the championship. Representing Pitt Meadows Golf Club, Maple Ridge’s Keanna Mason finished tied for 25th with Richmond’s Janet Zhang, both with plus-16 overall totals through four rounds of golf.

REICHELT - Ronald Ernest

Jan. 27, 1947 - June 29, 2013 It is with great sadness that we advised of the passing of our beloved husband, son, father and grandfather, Ronald Ernest Reichelt. Ron passed away unexpectedly on June 29, 2013. He is survived by the love of his life, Vaila, along with his mother, Shirley, his three children and their partners Jeremy and Tannis, Renee and Craig, Dustin and Courtney and grandchildren Reece, Gabriella, Connor, Rebecca, Jessica, Madison and Sadie. Ron was born in Victoria on January 27, 1947 and raised in Chilliwack where he met and fell in love with Vaila at the age of 14. Ron was a charter student at SFU, having been a recipient of an athletic scholarship to play on the school’s football team. Sports were a lifelong commitment for Ron as he was highly involved in the soccer and baseball organizations in Ridge Meadows, including coaching both his sons to wins in national baseball championships and continuing to be an avid lawn bowler and curler. Ron will be remembered as the man always willing to help anyone, as an extremely proud and amazing father and grandfather, a great friend, wonderful son and loving and devoted husband. A celebration of life will be held on Monday, July 8th at 2pm at Eighteen Pastures Golf Course at 29910 Matheson Ave, Mission. In lieu of flowers, the family requests support of Ron’s lifelong dedication to kids and sport through Jumpstart at jumpstart.canadiantire.ca.
