Child was airlifted to hospital.

Toddler falls from window by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter A three-old-boy was airlifted to hospital Thursday afternoon after toppling out of a second-storey window in Maple Ridge. The toddler was playing in his house on Cottonwood Drive near 116th Avenue when he pushed through a screen around 2:15 p.m., falling on to the pavement below. His fall was broken by a plastic playhouse, said fire chief Peter Grootendorst. Grootendorst added the child had no serious visible wounds but was in obvious pain. An air ambulance was called in to transport him to hospital so he could be checked for internal injuries. The boy was conscious and holding a teddy bear when he was loaded onto the helicopter, which landed at Thomas Haney secondary. He is the second child to tumble through a screened window in Metro Vancouver in as many days and the fifth so far this summer. On Wednesday, a two-year-old boy fell from third-storey window of a townhouse in Surrey. In early June, a two-year-old New Westminster girl died of injuries sustained in a similar fall. “This is a reminder for all parents to be vigilant when children are playing near open windows,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. “Even though the opening had a window screen in place, this may not be enough to stop a small child from going through.”

It was followed by a second volley, a scattering of tiny pebbles, bound to get his attention. From the trees that crowded at the base of a rocky slope, he heard a purr, a bass, vibrating sound, he was sure didn’t come from a cougar or bear. “I’ve grown up in the bush and it’s definitely something different.” Stretching from the edge of Maple Ridge to the rugged reaches of Mount Blanshard, Golden Ears Provincial Park is 62,540 hectares of secondgrowth forest, home to beaver, deer, black bear, and mountain goat.

Another bear shot in Ridge Maple Ridge has highest number of complaints by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter The District of Maple Ridge and concerned residents are urging the public to keep their garbage bins and pet food indoors, especially at night, after an adolescent black bear was shot and killed by a conservation officer in a residential neighbourhood. The adult male died around 7 p.m. between houses in the 23000 block of Cliff Avenue, just off Lougheed Highway. The bear had been living in a backyard, and been feeding from garbage cans and fruit trees for weeks. “It sounded like about 10 shots were fired,” said Brian Northam, who lives nearby. The district has generated the most complaints about humanbears conflicts in B.C. this year, logging 641 calls since April. “That’s an awful lot of pressure on conservation officers,” said Murray Smith, a sergeant with the B.C. Conservation Service. Block watch captain Mary McCennan, who lives across Golden Ears elementary, is upset that despite numerous warnings to her neighbours, they still won’t put their garbage bins indoors. “Amazingly enough, people think they have bear-proof garbage bins. They aren’t making the connection between the garbage and the bear,” she said. Rosemary Bordeleau, who spotted the bear in her backyard earlier this week, would also like neighbours to bring their trash cans indoors. See Bear, p12

Is it out there? The hunters believe Mythical creature said to be caught on film in Golden Ears Provincial Park Sasquatch from Front But lurking in the red cedar and moss-covered Douglas fir is where a legend comes to life. Sasquatch – the gigantic hirsute beast that figures in First Nation mythology, the comical Kokanee beer mascot – has been barking at Jason, tossing pebbles at him, banging on trees. He hasn’t seen one. “But I believe they are real.” ••• ason’s dad Adrian Erickson is your stereotypical outdoorsman, tall and rugged with weathered skin. He grew up on a small farm in northern Alberta, hunting and trapping with his father at an young age to help supplement their meagre income. He saw his first sasquatch at age seven, shrugging off the encounter as something normal, just another beast in the forest, as nothing odd. By the age of 16, while still in high school, Erickson was guiding American moose hunters and after graduation expanded his guiding and outfitting business into reclamation work for the oil and gas industry. At 26, Erickson put down his gun and switched to a bow. He’s comfortable trekking into the wild, spending days camped far from civilization, alone, braving all kinds of weather. In 2001, not far from Jasper, Alta., a sasquatch, quite literally, crossed his path. He admits he initially dismissed it as a cow moose. But he couldn’t avoid the nagging, gnawing notion that the lumbering, hairy brown creature he had seen was no ungulate. He had to find out more. ••• ounded in 1995, the Big Foot Field Research Organization bills itself as “the only scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery.” It is a virtual community of scientists, journalists, volunteers and the curious who maintain a database of sightings and research. When Erickson googled “sasquatch” a decade ago, the BFRO was like an easily accessed encyclopedia. “I realized how much evidence there was out there,” says Erickson. He devoured the BFRO’s compilations of eye witness reports from across the continent, the Patterson footage and research done by retired B.C. journalist John Green. Soon, Erickson signed up as a researcher and began to interview people in the U.S. and Canada who claimed to have seen a sasquatch.

Potential DNA sample in Golden Ears Provincial Park could be key to unravelling mystery. But a parks worker dismisses story. These were people who were dismissed as kooks, ridiculed, folks who has lost their jobs after revealing they believed in a beast that shared the same plane as fairies and the Loch Ness monster. It made Erickson wonder: why is the sasquatch shunned by science? “If scientists put 10 per cent of the effort into proving this exists, rather than trying to prove it didn’t exist, this would have been recognized decades ago as a species,” says Erickson. By 2005, Erickson had talked to hundreds of witnesses who were relieved to speak about sasquatches to someone who took them seriously – who had seen them himself. Tired of the wayward stares and sneers, he started the Erickson Project that year, the first multisite field study of the sasquatch in Canada and the U.S. with the goal to have it recognized as a species. “It is to vindicate the thousands of people who have been ridiculed,” says Erickson, whose been juggling a quest for the sasquatch while he develops acreages in Osoyoos, with his two sons, Jason and Ryan. ••• he term “sasquatch” is an anglicized derivative of the word “Sésquac”, meaning “wild man” in Halkomelem, the language of Coast Salish aboriginals of the Fraser Valley and parts of Vancouver Island. Aboriginal tribes across North America have more than 60 different terms for the sasquatch. And “big foot” isn’t just a North American legend.

Erickson has a tuft of what could be sasquatch hair found in Maple Ridge. Yeti and Meh-Teh, the Abominable Snowman, is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, India and Tibet. The mapinguari or Inashi is a giant sloth-like creature that features in legends throughout the Amazon, while Yowies are the ape-men of the Australian Outback. Big foot researchers pledge to study the species in ways that will not harm them. It’s why Erickson won’t tranquilize the creatures. To kill them, he says, would be akin to murder. Erickson says he has seen the sasquatch with his own eyes. So armed with cameras, in 2005, the Erickson Project began its quest to document the sasquatch, capturing what is purported to be the only other footage of the creature since the 1967 PattersonGimlin film. Most scientists believe the Patterson film is a hoax with a man in an

ape suit, but some people, including Erickson, insist it’s a creature unknown to science. The creature in the Patterson film resembles the sasquatch he’s seen, says Erickson. They have welldefined muscular physiques, long arms and walk like runway models. Erickson and his Reel Productions team say they filmed the sasquatch in Maple Ridge and in U.S. locations. They didn’t just film one – but several. They caught them sleeping, peering through trees and via thermal images. In his film, you can hear the sasquatch make low guttural sounds, the kind that make your hair stand on edge. The creatures are in a variety of colours – grey, brown and an orangutan orange. The location in Golden Ears Provincial Park was ideal because it had been hiked for more than a decade by the man who reported the sightings to Erickson. The sasquatch were not afraid to interact with the man, growing more familiar with him as he returned to the area. Erickson filmed at the location for two years and collected hair samples from what he says is a grey, light-coloured sasquatch. “You whistle and they whistle back. They won’t interact with strangers,” he explains. Not all encounters are visual. The sasquatch like to chuck rocks at you. They are skittish. “We don’t know why they pick certain people to show themselves to,” says Erickson. See Sasquatch, p5

Car Care Maple Ridge couple banned from owning dogs with Cyril Barry

RENT IT FIRST So! You are going to buy a new vehicle to replace your current “old faithful” set of wheels. In my many years in the vehicle repair trade I have talked to many vehicle owners that made an impulse buy for a variety of reasons, only to end up with a vehicle that does not suit them or their driving style. When I decide to make a major purchase, I talk to people that know more about it than I do. For instance, I was in the market for a table saw so I spoke with as many carpenters as I could. I also sourced a repair shop that fixes table saws and sought out the oldest guy with the most experience. I asked him a bunch of questions, telling him what I wanted the saw for, then I shut up and listened to what he had to say. When it comes to a vehicle purchase, you are talking about some major dollars, much more than a table saw. So you want as much information as possible prior to making any purchase decisions. I don’t know about you, but I do not find the web to be any help for learning more about something I am interested in purchasing. I find that it does inform, but I end up with more questions than answers. There is no substitute for someone that is an expert in their chosen field. After all, who better to ask than the one who fixes them day in and day out? When you have made your decision, what better way to get to know a vehicle than to rent one? If you are planning on moving up from a car to a mini-van, truck or SUV – do you really want to spend all that money and then hope you will like it? Why take the chance? Rent one for a week and drive it for a couple of days in the direction of your next holiday, spend all day sitting in it with the kids and dog climbing all over it, inside and out. See how it holds up to you and your lifestyle, see if you like driving it and how it is on gas, or how it is to park. Make sure that there is enough power and the brakes work the way you are used to, the seats go far enough back or forward, the mirrors work for you. Check out the trunk or cargo space, look at it from a distance, see if you still like it. Finally get out the bucket and sponge and wash it before you return it: you learn more from washing a vehicle than just about anything else (other than driving it, of course). Remember to get a grip, check your tire pressures at least once a month or before any trip longer then your normal driving routine. If you have a tire pressure monitor system, don’t ignore it. Enjoy the summer weather!

Sasquatch: Is it out there, somewhere? Sasquatch from p3 Although Erickson captured sasquatch several times in clear, crisp images, he soon realized people would still dismiss his video as a hoax. “The more evidence we got, scientists started backing away further and we got really tired,� he says. “We realized DNA was the only thing.� He hired Dr. Leila Hadj-Chikh, a biologist, who has a PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology, from Princeton University, along with Dennis Pfohl who set out to collect blood, saliva, hair and skin samples. A resident of Colorado, Pfohl, is an avid outdoorsman who had some strange encounters while camping in the backcountry. Married with four children, he has spent the past six years hunting sasquatch with a

camera and baiting them with food for samples of their DNA. The Erickson Project picked sites in Maple Ridge, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama where they knew they could get close to the creatures. Pfohl says the reports from those locations were credible and the sasquatch were known to return to the areas, especially to snack on human food. Much like bears, it seems the sasquatch have a taste for garbage and sweet things. Pfohl spent six months of the year visiting the research sites, trying to perfect his techniques. He’s missed birthdays, many Christmases, his son’s graduation. “Cumulatively it takes thousands of hours to collect the DNA,� he says. “I have spent days in tree stands, on the ground, in

“How could they live all these years and we didn’t know they were there?â€? Dennis Pfohl, researcher tall weeds, with ticks, rain, snow, hell.â€? Pfohl’s baited the sasquatch with dog food but ďŹ nds cakes and candy – Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Susie Qs – are what they like best. He’d leave them at the site for two or three days and is conďŹ dent it was sasquatch that took the snacks rather than a raccoon or bear. He also ďŹ gured pancakes were an inexpensive and quickto-create bait. When he didn’t have time to cook pancakes, he’d drive to a local McDonalds and buy a stack. Sasquatch like them smothered in syr-

up. “I often think I’m leading to their early death by cardio vascular disease. Or the poor things will end up with tooth decay because of all the sweets,â€? he says with a laugh. Pfohl sees himself as someone on a mission to ďŹ nd answers. “A lot of scientists won’t risk their reputations or careers on this,â€? he says. “The discovery of a species – a bipedal hominid – that is the greatest discovery of modern day man. “How could they live all these years and we didn’t know they were there? “The fact is people do see them. Hunters talk about them all the time but no one acknowledges it. People think I’m nuts.â€? • Is sasquatch real? See next issue of The News for Part 2 of Is it out there?

ow much longer can we keep fooling ourselves that increasing the size of the debt monster won’t eventually result in it firmly attaching its canines to our posteriors? While Canada isn’t in the same quagmire of its southern neighbours, Canadians overall, excluding mortgages, carry an average personal debt of $26,000, spread across credit cards, lines of credit and personal loans. While many parents will bemoan the sense of entitlement from some of the younger generation, we’re not seeing much smarter decisions from adults. Yes, the cost of living has increased while wages are stagnant, but too many of us seem to believe that it’s fine to live well beyond our means. We work hard, we deserve nice things, regular vacations, and newer vehicles more frequently. And why save the cash when credit is so readily available? Play now, pay later. How much longer will it take to realize this type of thinking is going to lead us down a path on which we don’t want to tread? It appears the recent recession has done little to curb the rampant consumerism witnessed for the past number of years. Recent reports say that Canada’s gross domestic product is based 58 per cent on consumer spending. Comparatively, in the U.S., the figure is alarmingly higher at about 70 per cent. This is a house of cards that will collapse. – Black Press Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

Nice to see kids riding bicycles It was quite inspiring to read in last week’s article Hill Street blues: must keep barriers, (The News, July 29) about how residents on Hill Avenue are trying to convince the District of Maple Ridge not to remove the barriers on their street. The district feels it’s desirable to offer their street as an alternate route to cars to the 102nd Avenue and 240th Street arterials. Understandably, residents worry that traffic will increase on their quiet street once the barriers are Commentary gone. Jackie Chow Motorists may use their street as a ratrun, trying to avoid the traffic lights at the 102nd Avenue and 240th Street intersection. They organized a big street party and a petition to show how passionate they are about keeping their neighbourhood safe and quiet. Only two months ago, the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition did a Bike to School program – the first in Maple Ridge – at Albion elementary, right across 240th Street from Hill Avenue. This program was funded by the District of Maple Ridge. As part of the program, a Family Bike Festival was held. The kids learned about traffic rules, how to manoeuvre their bikes around pylons, how to properly use their helmets, and

Q

uestion of the week:

they decorated their bikes At the end of the afternoon, a group of about 60 kids biked through the neighbourhood. I was helping out on that day, and I thought it was the greatest sight, all those kids cruising down Hill Avenue. You could see how thrilled they were to be in control. Quite a different experience for a lot of kids from being strapped into a car seat when being driven to school every morning. I was hoping that this Bike to School program would be the start of an important road to independence and learning for many of these kids. Many kids these days don’t learn much about how to behave in traffic, since their parents drive them everywhere. Once they turn 16, if they manage to correctly answer some multiple-choice questions about the rules of the road, suddenly they’re allowed to be in control of a three-tonne vehicle … and all those years we tried to keep them safe by not allowing them to bike other than in our quiet cul-de-sac or on the sidewalk! I wonder how many drivers have asked the district to remove these barriers. I suspect none. I doubt too many residents – if any –on either side of the barriers want them gone, because everyone wants to live in a quiet neighbourhood. Neighbourhood streets shouldn’t be used for through-traffic if it can be avoided – only for local traffic. Leaving the barriers in place may encourage more parents to allow their kids to bike to school. As more development takes place in east Maple Ridge, sooner or

later there will be traffic lights at the Hill Avenue and 240th Street, which would make Hill an attractive alternative for drivers. And once the barriers are gone, it’ll be much harder, or perhaps impossible, to get them back. So I say: kudos to Hill Avenue residents for standing up for their kids and their neighbourhood!

THE NEWS/letters Thieves are about, lock your doors EDITOR, THE NEWS:

Today around 11 a.m., my house and my neighbour’s house got broken into by two guys. We live on 240th Street in the Cottonwood area in Maple Ridge. They took several goods, including laptop computers, a flatscreen TV, cameras, jewelery and more. They broke both the front and back door of my neighbour’s house in order to get inside and broke through the back door of my home to get in. They turned both houses upside down looking for valuables and then they ran away. The police arrived and took finger prints from the scene. They did a great job. When I asked them how often this happened in this area, he told me that yesterday the same thing happened in two houses close by. I would like to tell my story to other people to increase+ awareness of these type of incidents. Also, I would like to know what the police are doing to prevent these type of incidents.

chat@mapleridgenews.com Lucky to have West Coast Express at all From: Rod Smelser, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Politicians get earful from politicians (The News, Aug. 10). Some might be surprised that Translink has refused to do a serious study of the future potential of the West Coast Express service, preferring instead to squander a quarter million on a study of a laughable proposal for a gondola to SFU, which won’t be carrying anyone on windy days. But in reality, Translink’s resistance to examining the long run possibilities for the West Coast Express is quite predictable. We’re lucky we have the Express at all, since mayors and municipal bureaucrats in the more powerful and better connected cities have always violently opposed it, and oppose the construction of any similar service on the south side of the Fraser River, or along the Arbutus line, or to Squamish and Whistler, or for that matter along the E&N line on the Island. Real estate interests want light, not heavy rail, because that means more station stops and more land-development nodes.

No equity needed for last leader EDITOR, THE NEWS:

Your headline, Next NDP candidate won’t be a white man, (The News, Aug. 5) is not quite accurate. The next candidate for the NDP can be a white man – who is gay or bisexual or perhaps transgendered – a result of the adoption of the equity clause at the 2005 convention. Up to then, members of the LGBT community could choose to reveal their sexual orientation at any time, if at all, and many have done so. Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered constituency wishing to run today in selected constituencies must make a declaration before allowing their name to stand. Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows has been selected as one of those constituencies. I believe this is demeaning to all our members and could lead to doubts of whether such candidates are truly qualified and up to the task. I question the intent of those who promoted this and wonder where they intend to go with it. Social democracy was born out of a desire to elevate and broaden emancipation to all

people. I ’ v e been a member of the NDP both federally and provincially for years. T h i s p o l i c y James m a d e me very uneasy when first I heard of it. Like many others, I really hadn’t seen a problem in our party regarding sex, race, sexual orientation or any other consideration. In fact, it is of historical significance that our party and its predecessor, the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, had advanced that charter rights and equality provisions be made into law and discriminatory practices face legal sanctions. I have no idea how the party became convinced that such a strong directive became necessary. The members needed no such directive when they elected Carole James as leader – need I say a woman and part First Nation.

groups, and so many others, all look to the NDP to try to make things better. The party has had several native members enter politics and some have sat as MLAs. Others from other cultures, races and different ethnic groups have sought and won representation. I remember well, Rosemary Brown and Emery Barns, B.C.’s first black MLAs. I have to believe the equity principle is misguided. There are several gay and lesbian members sitting today but most everyone, like myself, see no issue here and frankly just don’t give it much thought. The NDP has always fostered a sense of inclusiveness that bars none from seeking a more active political contribution. They will get all the help party members can provide if they are sincere, believe in justice and fairness and are committed to promoting equality, a cleaner environment and preserving what is healthy and good in this beautiful province. RICARDO CORDONI MAPLE RIDGE

Candidate not motivated by NDP’s policy EDITOR, THE NEWS:

I’m pleased that the NDP’s controversial equity policy is being discussed, although there seems to be a great deal of misinformation out there about it. The policy was voted on by the NDP membership and passed. (It was not a behind closed doors executive decision as suggested by Mike Boileau.) The decision was far from unanimous. As the potential woman candidate in Maple RidgePitt Meadows, I would like to state that this policy had absolutely no bearing on my de-

cision to run. I would be happy to welcome other potential candidates into the race because I believe that contested nominations add a level of excitement and energy to the process and engage party members by giving them a choice in the matter. Rosenau I would have no problem running against a straight, white male, and I have done so in the past. Two unfortunate consequences of the equity poli-

And how proud we were of the two MLAs, J e n n y K w a n and Joy MacPhail when for four years they stood up to the Kwan Liberal sweep. Just read the Hansard of those days to get an idea how they courageously fought the sale of BC Rail, privatization and closure of health facilities, cuts to education, advocacy and legal aid, women’s centres and so many other services. Yes, the NDP’s history of inclusiveness and progressive policies over the years was a comfort for so many who otherwise would have felt alienated and without a voice.

cy is that people like me might be suspected of being second-string candidates and straight, white males who might have wanted to run will feel sidelined. Unintended results like these are precisely the reason why this policy should undergo regular review. Although I look forward to a time when the equity policy is seen by the majority of

NDP members as unnecessary, I understand that this is the policy we need to work with at this time. Critics of the equity policy might want to consider joining the NDP so that they can voice their concerns in a productive way – on the convention floor. Critics who belong to a different political party might want to have a hard look at just how many candidates and/or politicians they have in the categories named in the NDP equity policy.

Premier Christy Clark’s plan to fund nicotine patches and gum for smokers is set to take off on Sept. 30; however, a few Maple Ridge taxpayers believe the program will go up in smoke. In May, the provincial government announced it will provide 12 weeks’ supply of over-thecounter nicotine gum or patches, or prescription pills to help smokers quit. The program will cost taxpayers $15 to $25 million a year, depending on how many smokers sign up. Maple Ridge resident

Ashley Bhan/THE NEWS

Kelsey started smoking at age 13, and thinks the government should create a grassroots campaign to help students who are struggling to quit. Janis Banford would like to see the government focus on creating treatment centres for smokers instead of supplying them with drugs

she believes will only feed their habit. “It’s an individual’s decision to make. It’s not easy to quit,” Banford said.

“Smoking is a very different thing. It’s very addictive and worse than heroin, in the way of quitting. “I don’t think this program will work. There is a lot of help out there already for smokers who want to quit smoking. That money should be going towards better health care,” she said. “I don’t think she should be involved with this because smokers have to come to the conclusion of quitting naturally on their own.” Banford hopes in the future the premier will re-think certain plans before acting on anything. Fellow Maple Ridge resident Kelsey, agrees with Banford. She began smoking at 13 while in high school and thinks the government should create a grassroots campaign to help students who’re struggling to quit. “I’ve tried the patches and the gum and nothing has worked for me,” she said. “I think [ the premier] is going to find this program highly ineffective. It may be helpful for those who can’t afford to quit but it’s all a state of mind.” “Most smokers start young while in school. You have to be of age to get those tools that help you quit. Kids don’t have that help,” she added. “[The government] should start at the school levels.” The B.C. Ministry of Health estimates that Tobacco related illnesses cost $2.3 billion a year, $605 million of which is related to direct health-care costs. The health ministry estimates that more than 6,000 B.C. residents die from tobacco use each year.

STD carriers urged to use e-cards by Je f f Nage l Black Press Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Internet greeting card no one really wants to receive. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control is promoting a free, online service that helps break the news to former sex partners that you may have given them a sexually transmitted infection. Users of the inSPOT service can send anonymous e-cards via e-mail to up to six partners warning them that they should get tested. Recipients get a link on how and where to get testing. The site, inspot.org, also offers information on STIs. Dr. Mark Gilbert at the BCCDC said notiďŹ cations are critical to

combatting and preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can use inSPOT. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require visitors to login or register to use the service,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free, simple and easy to use.â&#x20AC;? Users select an e-card with one of several different messages, enter the partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s e-mail address and can also add a personal message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes there are strings attached,â&#x20AC;? reads one of the e-cards. Another says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what you brought to the party, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you left with. I left with an STI. You might have, too.â&#x20AC;? InSPOT stands for Internet NotiďŹ cation Service for Partners or Tricks.

Striking out on his own in the NCAA Maple Ridge’s Devon Stewart signs NCAA scholarship with Canisius College by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Maple Ridge’s Devon Stewart said goodbye to his minor baseball career in style last month as he and his teammates on the Langley Blaze were crowned B.C. Premier Baseball League champions. Stewart had a 0.00 ERA for the tournament, and pitched a complete game shut out in the semifinal against Victoria. “It was a nice send-off,” said the six-foot-two right-hander. Stewart is moving on from the PBL after signing a lucrative

NCAA Division I scholarship to play baseball for Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. As freshman with the Canisius Griffins, Stewart hopes crack the weekday starting rotation. “It will be tough as a freshman, but I’m hoping to get some starts,” he said. “As long as I’m making good pitches, I’ll be happy.” Stewart said he chose Canisius because it gave him the best opportunity to get in the line-up while earning a degree. “For me it was the best baseball program,” he said. “And they offered me the most money.” The Jesuit liberal arts university, founded in 1870, also has a strong academic tradition. Stewart says he plans to study biology or biochemistry in case the professional baseball career doesn’t pan out.

Staff reporter The Ridge Meadows Royals bantam AAA baseball team finished third at the 2011 provincials championships last weekend in Victoria, their best result in close to 10 years. The Royals narrowly missed out on the Championship final as they lost 7-6 to the Vancouver Mounties in the tournament semi-final, leaving the

“My first goal is to get drafted,” he said. “But if that doesn’t happen, I’d like to go to med school and be a doctor.” Stewart grew up playing for the Ridge Meadows Royals, and after aging out of bantam AAA, opted to stay close to home and play with the Ridge Meadows midget AAA team instead of joining the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League. That gave Stewart to play against older players, and get more starts on the mound “It was the right decision for me,” he said. “I still got to hit too, which was fun. I played shortstop when I wasn’t pitching.” Stewart also got a chance to win, something he has done consistently throughout his baseball career. Stewart and the midget AAA Royals won provincials, a West-

winning run on second base in the top of the seventh inning. The Royals fell 4-3 in their opener against the White Rock Riptide, before bouncing back against the Victoria Juniors 7-1. The second day of the tournament saw the Royals lock horns with the Cloverdale Spurs and in a tightlyplayed affair, dropped the 3-2 contest.

Malecek formed the backbone of the Blaze’s starting rotation. His fastball has been clocked as high as 91 miles per hour, but averages in the 87 to 89 range. Stewart has a four-seam and a two-seam fastball is repertoire, as well as a change-up and a slider. Despite keeping the runs against down, the Royals struggled to break through offensively. The Royals faced North Delta in their final round robin game, coming out with a 6-2 victory and advancing to the tournament playoffs. That set up the semi-final showdown with the Vancouver Mounties, the seventh meeting between the two

“I think I have pretty good movement,” he said. The many stunned batters he faced this season would have to agree. In 10 regular season games with the Blaze this year, Stewart had a 5-3 record and 1.34 ERA. The Blaze had the cards stacked against them going into the playoffs this season as they had 12 wins wiped off their record for playing ineligible players. That took them from first place down to sixth. “It was obviously upsetting,” Stewart said. “But we took it as motivation.” The Blaze shut out the Coquitlam Reds 6-0 in the PBL final to grab the championship, and Stewart had a provincial gold medal around his neck once again. sports@mapleridgenews.com teams this year. Royals started left-handed pitcher Kyle Ross on the mound who battled the Mounties for three innings, giving up four runs. The Royals put in Graham Bailey in relief, but couldn’t keep the last two runs from crossing the plate despite two strong innings pitched. See Royals, p39

ity come sometimes overlooked factors such as impaired balance, impaired vision, and decreased reaction time. When choosing an exercise program, one should think about including activities that will benefit balance. But for this reason care should be taken to do these kinds of activities in a well supervised, safe environment. Thirty minutes of weight-bearing exercise daily benefits not only your bones, but can improve heart health, muscle strength among many other health factors. Those 30 minutes don’t need to be done all at once; they can be done for 10 minutes, three times a day for instance. But throughout the day you should try to accumulate enough exercise to stimulate bone growth.

As it turns out, the literature supports evidence for both resistance and weight-bearing exercise about equally. At least at this point in time it is very difficult to differentiate the minute contributions of each to bone growth. Bone growth is very sensitive to varying patterns of force and movement. Exercisers may best benefit bone strengthening by varying all the different parameters of movement. Not only should you do a variety of activities that include weight-bearing exercise such as walking and running with resistance exercise using weights or tubing, you should do them as various speeds and intensities and in different environments.
