Courts

On Wednesday afternoon, a Supreme Court judge acquitted a woman accused of killing two youth. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A judge has determined that Andelina Hecimovic is not guilty of dangerous driving causing death in an accident that killed two Pitt Meadows residents. Beckie Dyer and Johnny De Oliveira both died in October 2010 when Hecimovic’s car flipped over and landed on their vehicle. Justice M. Groper handed down the ruling Wednesday in New Westminster Supreme Court. Hecimovic had been charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death, but was found not guilty on both counts. Dyer was 19 and De Oliveira, 21, on Oct. 19, 2010, when they died in the car accident coming home from a concert.

Police action

Gun call draws police back to ‘shooting’ house What started as a firearms report turned into an alleged robbery Tuesday evening.

Police officers surrounded a home at Rosewood Street and Dewdney Trunk Road late Tuesday afternoon, after reports of men carrying a handgun.

by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

Mounties interviewed four woman found inside a house with suspected guns in west Maple Ridge Tuesday evening. General duty officers, members of the RCMP canine unit, and the emergency response team were all deployed to a home on the southeast corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and Rosewood just before 6 p.m. on Sept. 17. Police received reports that two men

entered the home with a handgun, RCMP watch commander Cpl. Kim Bruce told The TIMES. So, guns drawn, Mounties surrounded the home – the site of a previous shooting back in November 2011. Less than an hour later, the incident was resolved, as police determined the women inside were safe and they were taken in for questioning, Bruce explained. There seems to be a discrepancies in the time, however, between when the men reportedly entered the local house with a possible gun and when police cleared the bungalow. There were no men in the house when police entered, Bruce confirmed. “Where did the guys go?” she questioned.

Hells Angels arrested The four Canadian Hells Angels accused of attempting to distribute 500 kilograms of cocaine in Spain are linked to the Haney and Mission chapters of the biker gang. Two full-patch members – Chad John Wilson of Haney and Jason Cyrus Arkinstall of Mission – were among the B.C. men arrested by Spain’s National Police. The other B.C. men facing charges in Spain are Scott Smitna and Michael Dryborough, associates of the Hells Angels in Mission and Haney. • More at www.mrtimes.com

The suction-cup prongs of the garbage picker holds fast to the soft mass wedged beneath two large rocks. With a pull, Cheryl Ashlie, councillor for Maple Ridge, reels in her strange catch – a sopping wet, ratty, wool scarf. After briefly admiring her find, it’s dropped onto a growing pile of refuse underneath the 232nd Street bridge beside Maple Ridge Park. Ashlie and the two other volunteers manning the graffiti-covered ledge continue searching the area for more refuse. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is well underway. Sponsored by the Vancouver Aquarium and the World Wildlife Fund, and put on by the Alouette River Management Society (ARMS), the event sees community volunteers come together across Canada to help clean up and protect local rivers, streams, and shorelines. For Maple Ridge residents, that meant a Saturday patrolling the various areas around Maple Ridge Park, which resides along the Alouette River. “It’s really important to keep our streams healthy,” said Nicole Driedger, volunteer and education co-ordinator with ARMS. “All of the trash that comes down the storms drains and into the river actually winds up in the ocean.” As well, cleanup of the river helps the local eco-system as well, as it allows salmon to return to their spawning grounds and introduce much needed nutrients into the surrounding soil. “We live in a temperate rain forest, and the Alouette River provides the highway to all the streams where the salmon spawn,” said Driedger. “Without the stream and without the salmon, we wouldn’t have the forest.” With an estimated turnout of 40 volunteers, and approximately 14 large bags of trash picked up, Driedger and her co-worker, executive director Greta Borick-

Volunteers covered seven kilometres of shoreline and picked up 56 pounds of garbage from along the Alouette River in Pitt Meadows on Saturday. Among the garbage were food wrappers, beverage cans, plastic bags, clothing, foam, plastic, and metal – some of the stranger items were mangoes and lemons, construction material, and half sunken boats, said Laurie Darcus, one of the 19 volunteers who were cleaning up the shoreline. Darcus was especially grossed out at finding 916 cigarette butts, which she pointed out are “very toxic” for small animals and birds. “Make sure they are extinguished and put them into the garbage can, please,” she said. The Pitt Meadows Paddling Club members were in canoes and kayaks on the water helping clean muddier areas. “I am so grateful to all the volunteers who came out and helped, some getting a little muddy just to keep our shorelines clean,” Darcus said. “It is not just esthetically important, but wildlife can really suffer from all this litter and debris, from getting tangled in it, to ingesting poison.”

The Golden Ears Transition Initiative (GETI) is a network of organizations promoting sustainability – and its founder Geri Pinel would like to see this same thing for youth in the community. Pinel is in the early stages of starting a youth action coalition which would work like GETI, providing a forum to share ideas and resources. “This is the world [youth] will be inheriting – they have to have some say in that,” Pinel said. Creating a forum for youth will give them “ a much louder voice in the community,” he added. “Youth in our community” is the theme of GETI Fest this year, scheduled to run at Memorial Peace Park on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with tents, displays, and the annual parade with people on all non-fossil-fuel modes of transportation taking part.

Members of the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service will be taking off their boots for a good cause this weekend. Firefighters will be collecting donations Saturday, Sept. 21 for the annual Fill the Boot campaign for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Proceeds from the event go towards helping those living with muscular dystrophy by providing them with the essential services they need to live healthy, active, and independent lives. Brad Perrie, assistant fire chief for the City, said the department has been involved in the boot drive for a number of years. “It’s been really great,” Perrie said. “We look forward to doing this every year.” In previous years, the department has raised between $6,000 and

Friends In Need

Ink donations help feed hungry Getting some body art done at Authentic Ink Tattoo helps fill the food bank cupboards.

Tattoo artist Tracey Nahachewsky, owner of Authentic Ink Tattoo, visited with client Jackie Dupont last week at the tattoo shop at 22353 Lougheed Hwy.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

A Haney tattoo artist is doing her part to make a positive mark on the community. From the charge for each tattoo, Tracey Nahachewsky, owner of Authentic Ink Tattoo, is donating $5 or $10 to the Friends In Need Food Bank, depending on the price of the body art. She is also accepting donations above and beyond those amounts from her customers. Nahachewsky’s goal is to raise at least $500 for the local food bank. “I would love to challenge or ask other local businesses to also contribute a little bit,” Nahachewsky said. “This is my way of giving back.” By the time she closed her shop’s doors for the day on Sept. 5, the first day of the fundraising drive, Nahachewsky had already collected $75 towards her goal.

Troy Landreville/TIMES

“I’d like to start it for the month, but if it does well, I’d like to progress it right through to December,” she said. “Basically it’s just helping out with the food bank. From what I know, they can always use help. I want to be one of those businesses that help out. You give what you get.” She has owned the shop for three years and welcomes a number of regulars ranging from RCMP officers, to doctors and nurses, many returning to augment their body art. “I have the RCMP who hang out here… everybody hangs out here. It’s turned into a clubhouse,” she said.

Nahachewsky has no prior connection to the Friends In Need Food Bank. She simply woke up one morning and said to herself, “Let’s do it. Let’s help somebody.” Initially, Nahachewsky had planned on accepting nonperishable food donations, in exchange for a certain percentage off the cost of each customer’s tattoo. “But the food bank can stretch five dollars farther than a can of soup,” she said. “So that’s how this all started.” Located at 22353 Lougheed Hwy., Authentic Ink Tattoo is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday

to Friday, and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Donations are being accepted during those business hours.

Our View

Lots of gas in jobs report The provincial government’s BC Jobs Plan 24-month progress report looks pretty rosy… or at least, its report on the report looks good. The actual report itself is loaded with rose-coloured baffle-gab that attempts to mask a grim reality – the province isn’t really doing particularly well in a continuing sluggish global economy that has almost nobody doing very well. Premier Christy Clark maintains she is “tremendously proud” of the Jobs Plan’s “progress” since it was instituted two years ago. Jobs, Tourism and Skills Scan Training Minister Shirley with Bond, who has most recently inherited responsibility for the Jobs Plan, optimistically adds that the report “shows that our plan is working.” The report is peppered with positive enthusiasm suggesting successes – but it is also salted with carefully chosen euphemisms that hide realistic phrases that bury the success under politicians’ questionable hopes and dreams. The province is “on the threshold” of success, and has “successfully aided in the progress” towards “prospective” agreements that could (if they get beyond the prospective stage) realize 29,000 jobs. In fact, the province’s private sector is down thousands of full-time jobs – in real numbers, not just short of goals – since the Job Plan was instituted in 2011. Naturally, Clark’s government continues to pin its hopes on liquified natural gas – but reading between the carefully worded lines suggests that the dream is many kilometres short of pipe. The dismal economy is a problem for everyone. We get that. It’s the dishonesty that rankles. We’ve appended the government press release online at www.mrtimes.com (click on Opinion) so you can judge for yourself how much of the report is just so much natural gas. – B.G.

Transportation

Trains important to local commerce

Dear Editor, I hope Mr. Donald G. Sutherland [Too many too heavy trains passing, Sept. 10 Letters, TIMES] will understand that the rail line on the north side of the Fraser through Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows is

the CPR Mainline, which it shares with the CNR as well as the West Coast Express. Trains go through to Port Moody and the terminals in North Vancouver, so they have run a lot of them in the evening and weekends so they don’t conflict

BC Hydro

Smart meter choices costly

Dear Editor, I got my letter from BC Hydro regarding my analog meter. Here are my choices: • Get the Smart Meter at no cost. • Get the Smart Meter with radio-off for a $100 setup fee and $20 monthly fee. • Keep my old one for $35 per month, effective Dec. 2. Isn’t this actually called “extortion”? What has happened to this province? Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

Energy

Harper on Enbridge’s side

Dear Editor, Stephen Harper: Paid by Canadians, working for Enbridge. How convenient it is for Harper to prorogue Parliament. Now he can send his henchmen to try and bribe the First Nations and bully the rest of B.C. into accepting the pipeline. Now that the BC Liberals have won and Premier Christy Clark has decided 30-plus days sitting in the legislature is enough this year, and she has received her orders from Harper, she will be right on board with the pipeline. Hopefully, the First Nations will refuse, and have this in court for years. John Munro, Maple Ridge

Syria

Decision belongs to Canada

Dear Editor, British MPs voted against the United Kingdom getting involved in Syria, in order to give United Nations weapons inspectors time to do their job. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has refused to reconvene Canada’s Parliament for a debate, instead saying he’ll support U.S. military action. I don’t think that’s the prime minister’s call. That belongs to the entire country. He should recall Parliament so that we can be heard. Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

Transportation

Slow down executive bonus

Dear Editor, Who, when, and how are the people running TransLink going to be reined in? They get very generous salaries – with bonuses, yet – so to cover all that, they crank up the fares on the riders. The riders have no way of fighting back. To add insult to injury, now transit riders have to pay twice. Robert W. Stirling, Maple Ridge

with the passenger trains, like West Coast Express, VIA Rail, and the Rocky Mountaineer that travel the route during the day. The 140 to 144 cars in the trains are for economic reasons, and some are heavier than others, due to the cargo they are carrying. Mr. Sutherland should realize that the items he buys from place like Canadian Tire, or the car parts he buys and the tires he buys plus some of the food he eats, come to him via train transportation. As he has lived in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area for 10 years, he must have seen what some of the trains were carrying. The speed of the trains is regulated. How fast they can travel on rails is not much more than he would travel on the highways that parallel the tracks, and if he doesn’t like the way the trains move, he should move to where there are no trains, and stop buying his food – and other items – that the trains bring in. Eric Phillips, Maple Ridge

Trains and shame

Dear Editor, Welcome to Pitt Meadows. I have lived here for 39 years and the trains have been here longer than that. Did Donald Sutherland [Too many too heavy trains passing, Sept. 10 Letters, TIMES] not know that there are trains in Pitt Meadows? Also, if there were only 16 per cent of Canadians who voted [Canadians ashamed, Sept. 10 Letters, TIMES], then where were the other 84 per cent? Are we that pathetic? Unfortunately, there is not anyone any better. There are no political persons on Earth who are not out to better themselves. So, yes, we are pathetic.

Gun report evolves into robbery case

…continued from page A1

Const. David Truong was among RCMP on site in west Maple Ridge Tuesday.

Officers blocked off part of Dewdney Trunk Road and Rosewood to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for a short time, until incident commander Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. C. Gosselin was able to give the all clear. “We’re confident there’s no risk to the public,” he said, after ordering some of the officers on scene to stand down. It was confirmed there was no

imminent danger, Bruce noted later. But the investigation is continuing. Thursday morning, local Mounties were reporting the incident involved an alleged robbery of cash, jewelry, and electronics. No arrests had been made Wednesday morning. This is the same address where a 29-year-old man was shot and subsequently airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries almost two years ago. Police alleged at the time it was

not a random incident, and that the shooting might have been linked to the drug trade. Ryan Verne Gilpin later turned himself into police and was charged with attempted murder with a firearm following the incident. It’s unclear at this point if that court case has been concluded, or if those involved in the 2011 incident had anything to do with Wednesday’s incident at the Maple Ridge home.

$ Barry, Matthew, Katherine, and Lindsay Charron from Maple Ridge recently visited Radiator Hot Springs in Carsland at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., having their pictures taken holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES, standing next to Cars star Lightning McQueen. In the meantime, Kisha (left) and Kacie Cherka travelled to Alberta this summer with their grandma and uncle. They visited the badlands or desert area of Alberta, checking out the thin spire of rock formations – some five- to 150-feet tall – left by wind and water erosion. The Maple Ridge kids also toured the nearby Royal Tyrell Museum (inset) in Drumheller, where there are 40 dinosaur skeletons (like the one behind them) as well as thousands of fossil speciemens. They, too, had their pictures taken holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES.

Port Coquitlam’s Fremont Blue neighbourhood celebrates first phase success SALTBOX ROWHOMES, NATURAL BEAUTY AND TONS OF AMENITIES

M

osaic Homes’ prestigious Fremont Blue offers easy access to shopping, amenities and great schools. Walk the 25km riverside Traboulay Trail, or wander the 13 acres of park reserve, and enjoy a bridgeless commute to Downtown Vancouver. Be inspired to live among the natural beauty of the Pitt River and green space that surrounds the Fremont community.

With the successful completion of Phase 1, Mosaic anticipates a strong demand for Phase 2 (a 75-home development) in the Fremont Riverfront District project – with just over 650 rowhomes and apartment residences in the community when the project is complete. The beauty of the natural surroundings, appealing architecture of the community and proximity to public transportation are sure to peak your interest. Plans for the Fremont Village - a collection of bigbox & popular retail stores - and reserved space for a business park nearby are obvious draws. The East Coast inspired ‘saltbox’ architecture is

a refreshing change to typical West Coast home design. Featuring pitched gable roofs, large windows, brick and shingle details and accents such as raised entry ways covered by metal canopies are a welcome sight. The homes feature a level of comfort and individuality to reflect the lifestyle of a progressive, fun, cultured young family. Coupled with your new home will be the Fremont Riverclub - a luxurious 12,500-square-foot recreational facility that includes both outdoor and indoor amenities. It will be within walking distance from every home - offering residents swimming,

According to weekly TIMES columnist Jeff Weltz, pan fish, – and in particular the Pumpkinseed variety – get a bad rap – especially among adults. “That’s unfortunate, because these fish are very palatable and can withstand the large retention quota rendered them,” Weltz says. “Aside from their table quality, these species offer reasonable sport on ultra light gear and hold their own as a willing dry fly fish.” • Catch his full column at: www.mrtimes.com, search on “Weltz”
