City soon will have new rink Renos done by 2012 on longsuffering Pitt Meadows Arena by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The Pitt Meadows Arena is now a year into its $8.6-million renovation, and for hockey, lacrosse, and ringette players who have been playing in a construction zone for the past 12 months, the end is in sight. And despite the price tag, taxpayers will save about $4 million, says Mayor Don MacLean, who in 2009, said building a three-rink arena from scratch would cost $12 million. That number since has jumped to $21 million. The project is expected to be completed by early 2012, with much of the exterior work having been completed this summer, including the two-storey glass facade. However, Don Cramb, recreation manager for parks and leisure services, says much of the work being done is behind the scenes where the public may not notice it, with more

Two major components of the upgrade have been the replacement of the long-leaking roof and the shoring up of the wooden piles the arena sits upon to make the building safe in the event of an earthquake. “It’s a great asset for the community and its something [the city doesn’t] want to lose so they are investing quite a few dollars to keep this place up and running,” Cramb said. “If nothing was done with the building, we would be in big trouble ﬁve, six years from now.” See Arena, p8

Sasquatch: Is it out there? Myth or reality: DNA samples from Golden Ears Provincial Park being tested by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter
Hits 3.3 on Richter scale, centred in park
n a Texas lab, blood, saliva, hair and ﬂesh from what’s believe to sasquatch are being analyzed and sequenced for a genetic blueprint. For now though, what Dr. Melba Ketchum has learned about the animal is a secret. “As an ethical scientist” Dr. Ketchum won’t comment on any of sasquatch DNA testing or her ﬁndings until her research has been submitted to a journal and has passed a conﬁdential peer review by experts in the ﬁeld. Ketchum’s company DNA Diagnostic Inc. specializes in multispecies testing including human as well as animal DNA analysis for individuals, law enforcement, breed associations and state regulatory agencies. It usually runs tests for pet owners pining to ﬁnd out whether bones discovered in the woods behind their homes belong to beloved Fluffy or Fido who met their demise in the jaws of a coyote. Ketchum stresses the DNA testing is being done independently of the Erickson Project, the ﬁrst multi-site ﬁeld study of the sasquatch in Canada and the U.S. with the goal to have it recognized as a species. “The peer review is essential to protect the integrity of a study by independently verifying the scientiﬁc analysis and conclusions in order to minimize people claiming this research as another bigfoot hoax or fraud,” said Ketchum. She hopes to have the peer review complete and results ready for release by the end of the year. To prevent people with “some limited knowledge of the ongoing DNA testing from trying to make premature disclosures or claim unfounded credit,” everyone associated with the research is under a legally binding non-disclosure agreement that includes Adrian Erickson, the man who ﬁlmed what he believes are sasquatch in Maple Ridge and other research sites in the U.S. But getting a new species recognized isn’t an easy task. Since 2000, there have been many new species “described” but none “discovered” by science. Most of these were species initially thought to be the same, but which are now split into two groups. For example, a sloth thought to be a normal three-toed sloth was

found to be a separate species after DNA analysis, explains Arne Mooers, a professor of biology at Simon Fraser University. In terms of real discoverErickson ies, the most recent large mammal stumbled upon was the Pseudoryx nghetinhensis or Saola, a bovid (ox) found in Laos and Vietnam in 1992. Another large mammal – Balaenoptera omurai, a whale which range from 8 to 28 metres, was formally described in 2003. Mooers ﬁnds it hard to believe a bipedal primate has been in North America’s forests and mountains for centuries. It is too big, he says, pointing out that many of these sasquatch hideouts happen to be rather close to urban areas and suburban subdivisions – but have yet to cough up skulls or bones. North America would also be the last place he’d consider exploring for a new species of primate. “The only primate that lives outside the tropical region is us,” says Mooers. “There’s a macaque that lives in southern Japan but all other primates lives in equatorial or subequatorial regions.” But if someone drove out of the mountains with a dead sasquatch strapped to the hood of their car, it would change his mind. “Never say never,” he says. ••• ohn Bindernagel is one of the few biologists in the world
Sasquatch hunter Adrian Erickson points to a footprint in gravel. who readily admits the sasquatch is an extant or “real” animal. Based in Courtney on Vancouver Island, he is more concerned with addressing ecological questions such as how it over-winters in the colder regions of North America and its range. The best proof for Bindernagel are the tracks left behind by sasquatch, especially when those foot prints which have been cast in plaster. Other evidence lies in sightings. “I’ve just heard so many sincere, eyewitness accounts,” says Bindernagel, who has written two books on the subject. “These people do not want to tell me their reports. You almost have to drag it out of them.” Hoaxes are a big reason why scientists steer clear of sasquatch. Bindernagel believes referring to sasquatch as “Bigfoot” doesn’t help either. “We need to convince them to look at the evidence which is what they’ve been unwilling to do so far,” he said. “Many discoveries have taken
sometimes a century to be fully accepted. It’s exactly what we are dealing with here. It’s a de facto discovery – a discovery made in fact but simply not recognized by the larger scientiﬁc community.” ••• ales about sasquatch roaming Golden Ears Provincial Park and thwarting bear-proof bins to snack on garbage amuse Stu Burgess. As park manager, he’s responsible for the “front country” – an area one kilometre from the park’s main road that includes horse trails and campsites. He’s yet to catch sight of any ape-man or – for that matter – odd-looking, sevenfoot tall bears with the gait of super models. “I’ve been working up here for 17 years and in that time, I’ve seen two cougars,” he says with a laugh. The Erickson Project intends to release their documentary Sasquatch: The Quest in conjunction with the DNA test results.
A small earthquake rumbled under Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Thursday night swaying homes but causing no damage. The 3.3 magnitude tremor hit around 10 p.m. but missed by most people. Maple Ridge realtor Scott Leaf felt the quake while in bed. “I woke up my wife to say I felt the earthquake wave pass through the house here in Maple Ridge.” According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was centred in Golden Ears Provincial Park, 59 km northeast of Vancouver and happened at a depth of four km. It was lightly felt in Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam and Burnaby.
Man faces child porn charges A Maple Ridge man has been charged with possessing child pornography. Douglas James McNally, 67, was arrested June 27 after Ridge Meadows Mounties, the RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation Unit and Technological Crime Unit executed a search warrant at his home. The warrant allowed investigators to ﬁnd and seize a computer as evidence. Police have not said how many images were found on the computer. Charges of possessing and distributing child pornography were sworn against McNally on Thursday, Aug. 11 in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court. He is due back in court on Aug. 18.

Reformed U-Pass rolls out by Jeff Nage l Black Press TransLink and area universities are rolling out a tightened system to dispense and regulate student transit UPasses that were often lost in the mail or illegally resold. The change comes as 60,000 additional students join an expanded, revamped U-Pass program that gives them all unlimited transit for $30 per month, charged
with student fees. Each college or university is installing vending machines that will dispense the new U-Passes to students each month after they swipe their student cards. The monthly U-Passes replace the old system of mailing out passes that were good for an entire four-month term. TransLink estimated $15 million worth of U-Passes were being reported lost or stolen each year and replaced. Many of them later
found their way into the hands of other users. Spokesman Ken Hardie said mailing the passes was problematic because many students weren’t diligent about keeping their mailing address up to date. “Cards were being sent off and lost in the ether,” he said. Ofﬁcials hope doling out the passes just one month at a time via machine will solve that problem and make them harder to sell them as well.

Maple Ridge council: don’t even go there
ccording to District of Maple Ridge staff, the terrain makes it difﬁcult to develop in northern Albion, so one possible way would be for the district to the $4 million up front for the road and sewer costs and thus ease the way for developers in the 240th Street/112th Avenue area. Such an approach is followed in other cities, whereas Maple Ridge has stuck to the model of developers paying for infrastructure, the roads, sewers and sidewalks, etc., then giving the infrastructure to the district, which then takes over the costs of long-term maintenance. Maple Ridge should continue using this tried and true method and avoid risking taxpayer dollars just for the sake of spurring development. The report warns there is fractured land ownership in the area. That could make land assembly difﬁcult and preclude development in some parts, which could mean the district (read taxpayers) wouldn’t recoup all of its costs. Given the never-ending annual ﬁve-per cent increases in property taxes, the municipality can ill-afford to be tossing around millions for infrastructure in an area in which developers are reluctant to invest. In other words, if the marketplace sees no value investing in infrastructure, neither should the district. Instead, the municipality needs to focus on reinventing its ﬁnancial model to reduce its constant spending and taxing increases. It also needs ﬁnally to give accurate projections on the long-term costs of servicing suburban infrastructure so that the real costs of development can be integrated into planning. That truly would be innovative. – The News Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

Playing monopoly with B.C. Hydro VICTORIA – It’s a basic strategy for the board game Monopoly. If you land on one of the utilities, buy it and reap the steady revenues. Real-world investors follow the same rule. BC Hydro’s debt may be enormous, but it’s one of the B.C. Views safest investments Tom Fletcher around. The crown jewel of B.C. utilities is such a money machine that it can allow extravagant practices and still deliver some of the cheapest, cleanest, most stable energy in North America. Some of those extravagances were described in a new report on BC Hydro by three senior bureaucrats. Headline items included a 41-percent increase in staff in just four years, lavish management bonuses and union overtime pay, and a communications department almost as big as the B.C. government’s own. You won’t find this kind of luxury in private companies that have to compete in today’s ruthless marketplace. And you won’t learn much about it from listening to B.C.’s political debate, dominated as usual by the NDP’s union-approved talking points. According to those, the only serious problem here is the intrusion of private power producers on to the turf of this government monopoly cash cow. BC Hydro is only now getting a taste of the business discipline that has been applied to other areas of the provincial
government. A case in point is the utility’s 650 staff engineers, part of what the reviewers termed a “gold standard” corporate culture. Why does BC Hydro have six times as many engineers as the transportation ministry, which manages about the same amount of complex construction? According to Energy Minister Rich Coleman, the transportation ministry used to work the same way. Staff engineers would design a new bridge down to the speciﬁcations of the last bolt that holds the handrail. Then this design would be put out to tender, with the winning bidder micromanaged at every step. The remaining Transportation Ministry engineers now speak wistfully of this bygone golden age. Today, they are expected to set cost and performance speciﬁcations and let the private sector design and build the bridge to meet those targets. Innovations are thus encouraged, not prevented, and their former colleagues do just ﬁne in the private sector. A brisk pruning – the report recommends reducing total staff from 6,000 to 4,800 – gives Premier Christy Clark what she asked for – an expected 32-per-cent rate increase over three years will be limited to only 16 per cent. It also leaves BC Hydro’s huge capital works program more or less alone: rebuilding old dams, preparing for Site C and expanding both the grid and generation capacity. The review team also leaves the smart meter program alone, ﬁnding more evidence it will pay off in savings. The reviewers found that BC Hydro’s
overtime costs are higher than other electrical utilities, and 84 per cent of that is paid to unionized electricians. The top ﬁve overtime earners doubled their base salary with overtime pay between $113,000 and $130,000 last year alone. With a smart grid, at least they won’t be collecting so much overtime to drive around searching for downed wires.
“The crown jewel of B.C. utilities is such a money machine that it can allow extravagant practices and still deliver some of the cheapest, cleanest, most stable energy in North America.” And I suppose it would be nice to have all overtime paid at double-time, and 17 to 20 “ﬂex days” that can be taken off or traded for cash. But other public sector workers don’t get that. The government milks this cow too. It overcharges BC Hydro for water use, for one thing. What this overhaul may also lead to is an end to former premier Gordon Campbell’s aggressive climate strategy. That’s a complicated issue that I’ll tackle in a subsequent column.

Re: Next NDP candidate will not be a white man (The News, Aug. 5) In more than one letter to the editor (possible NDP candidate), Elizabeth Rosenau has despaired of the state of democracy in our country.

email@example.com Quit smoking strategy is naive From: 8canadiangrl8 , posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Smoker pans province’s patch plan (The News, Aug. 12). Christy Clark is being very naive with this policy. Most smokers attempt to quit many, many times before finally being successful. It takes a huge amount of will power and without that the gum and patches are useless. The gum and patches work out to be about the same amount of money as cigarettes. When people start buying them instead of cigarettes you know they’re start to get really serious about quitting. Handing them out for free to people who aren’t really, really ready to do the hard work involved in quitting is pretty misguided.
Logging threatened by sasquatch? From: Art MacKay , posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: Is it out there? (The News, Aug. 12). I hint at other motives for declaring the eastern Cougar extinct in my article. Some believe that if it is declared an endangered species that its habitat becomes protected by law. This would have disastrous consequences for the logging industry. Because the cougar and sasquatch both have huge home ranges, this covers a lot of territory. Better to keep everything in limbo?

The average citizen would have a great deal of difﬁculty obtaining information as to what their elected representatives are doing and why they might be doing it.

Its mandate would be to scrutinize every aspect of the duties of councillors and the mayor, and based on the information derived, determine an appropriate salary level. No govern-

It is hard not be cynical as to the question of municipal salaries. Taxes continue to rise, streets fall into disrepair, yet the mayor and council continue to increase their salaries. These are public servants after all and as such, they should be obliged to submit to public scrutiny.

New arena will be 30 per cent greener Arena from Front Cramb said the upgrades have effectively tripled the lifespan of the facility, which was built in 1992. Along with a new energy-efﬁcient insulated roof, the arena’s heating and ventilation system has also been replaced, while the arena’s exterior walls have been insulated and recladded with tough, weather resistant panels. The upgrades should make the building 30 per cent more energy efﬁcient, says general manager Ray

2011 Sonata Hybrid
KEEP THE SKY BLUE AND YOUR WALLET GREEN. The 2011 Sonata is the first Hybrid to feature lithium polymer batteries – the smallest, lightest and most advanced hybrid batteries in the world. It’s just one part of our investment in eco-friendly technologies called Blue Drive. With an impressive 206 net horsepower, proprietary 6-speed automatic transmission, panoramic sunroof, and LCD trip computer, the Sonata Hybrid feels more like driving a conventional automobile. After all, just because you care about the environment, doesn’t also mean you don’t care about a great driving experience.
have been relocated to bank of portables in front of the building, as the rotting plywood and drywall rooms inside the arena are replaced with brick. Boogaards expects the new change rooms to ready by October. The ﬁnal product will feature renovated change rooms, new bleachers, HD television screens, and a new concession and lounge with elevator access. Boogaards said the arena is still looking for a vendor to operate the arena’s concession stand and lounge, but noted a deal was close. The arena was built in 1992 under a partnership with CDI Enterprises, which built and temporarily ran the facility. After the company went into receivership in the late 1990s, the Ridge Meadows Arena Society took over the facility and its mortgage. In 2007, however, the city cancelled its lease agreement with the society and took over operation of the rink, hiring management ﬁrm

Nustadia to run the facility since April. The initial plan for the rink renovation was to see construction completed over a ﬁve-year span. However, the City of Pitt Meadows revised that timeline earlier this year to ensure all major aspects of the renovation were done by the end of the year. Poor weather this summer delayed the completion of the new roof. The cost of the renovations have jumped considerably since the project was ﬁrst proposed, from $5.3 million to $8.6 million, due to unforeseen repairs to the piles the arena sits on, as well as fasttracked timeline. But Cramb afﬁrmed the cost is still cheaper than it would be to be build a new arena. “[These renovations] will keep it running for the future and to make it safer for every one.”

Pitt Meadows will pay businesses to green up their acts Program designed to reduce their carbon footprints
“There’s a real opportunity for savings there.”
by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The City of Pitt Meadows and Metro Vancouver are paying local businesses up to $1,000 to take part in a program designed to help them reduce their carbon footprint. Called Climate Smart, the program helps businesses monitor their carbon footprint as well as educating them about environmentally-friendly business options, streamlining practices, and lowering energy consumption. In addition to helping the environment, there’s a financial incentive for going green as well. “A construction company in Whistler was able to divert much of their waste to a recycling program, saving them about $65,000 every year in tipping costs,” said Climate Smart spokesperson Lloyd Lee. “A retailer in the Valley managed to reduce their electricity bill by one-sixth just by shutting off all their lights for four hours a night.” Metro Vancouver is offering 200 $500 grants for businesses to take part in the program. The City of Pitt Meadows is also offering an additional $500 grant for five local businesses. The program costs between $1,250 and $2,000, depending on the size of the business, bringing the cost down to as little as $250 for local businesses who apply for the subsidy. More than 400 businesses across the province have already taken part in the program,
Lloyd Lee, spokesperson, Climate Smart
said Lee. “What were finding is that for every ton of carbon emissions a business can reduce, they can see a savings of about $450,” he said. The majority of savings come from reducing fuel and energy costs. “Agricultural companies can often have quite a heavy carbon footprint because of transportation costs, but that mean there’s a real opportunity for savings there,” Lee said. The program itself consists of three half-day training sessions with the business, as well as one year of access to computer software which helps calculate and monitor carbon emissions. Businesses also receive one-on-one personal coaching through a hotline number should they encounter issues down the road. Businesses that take part in the program are issued a Climate Smart seal, which can be used for marketing purposes. • For more information, visit www.climatesmartbusiness.com/metrovancouver. The next sessions take place at the Climate Smart office in Gastown on Sept. 13, Oct. 11 and Nov. 10.

Flooding Fraser R. created plagues
ur cool, damp summer has more of us than usual itching and scratching, due to mosquito bites. When we examine our history with these small pests, we have absolutely nothing to complain about. One of the primary characteristics of the Maple Ridge district is an abundance of water. In advance of human efforts at drainage, the mosquitoes were an annual and muchdreaded plague. One of our earliest – and certainly the funniest – references to this plague comes
account of his first encounter with William Nelson and the mosquito plague: “He told me to come in the house and have something to eat. I went in and entered a very large front room; the doors were all closed, and there was a huge smudge-burning in the room, for the mosquitoes were very bad. I did not know which was the worst,
from the memoirs of our first school teacher, James William Sinclair. He arrived in 1875 from Victoria and was all of 17 at the time. He had been directed by those who sent him to find William Nelson because Nelson, who was on the school board, could provide him with room and board. Here is Sinclair’s

Dike construction, DDT killed the pests Bugs from p14 â€œAfter supper, we all repaired to the front room. There were several other men there for they had just started to build the River Road. I there met Mr. John Hinch and a man by the name of Welch. In the evening, they began to talk about how bad the mosquitoes were. At this, the stranger who had just arrived joined in. He said, â€˜You gentlemen donâ€™t know what mosquitoes are. When I was on a ship on the PaciďŹ c Ocean, a swarm struck our ship and ate every bit of the canvas off the boat.â€™ â€œMr. Nelson was taking this all in, as well as your humble servant, for he spoke up and said â€˜Why those same mosquitoes struck our ship.â€™ â€œAt that, the stranger said, â€˜Impossible, how can you prove that?â€™ â€œNelson replied, â€˜I can prove the same mosquitoes struck our
ship, for when they came aboard they all had canvas overalls on. â€˜l thought if these pests were as bad as that I would stay in Maple Ridge and so I remained.â€™ After that incident, Sinclair would have two more weeks to prepare for school classes because it was closed because of the mosquitoes. This was a common and even annual occurrence. The water of the freshet would lie stagnant on the saturated land and breed mosquitoes by the millions. Not only were they an agonizing nuisance, they were a danger to livestock and even children, through loss of blood. Families huddled indoors, coughing and wheezing over smudge pots, to keep the pests at bay. When the Lilley family arrived in 1907, their ďŹ rst home had burn marks on the ďŹ‚oors from the smudge

more and more services onto municipalities, said MacLean, mentioning the greenhouse gas reduction requirements imposed. “There may some a time when it just gets to be too much.” But the minister responsible says an auditor won’t mean the province is going to start micro-managing municipalities. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong met with the executive of the Union of B.C. Municipalities in late July to discuss the plan. Chong said last week that B.C.’s municipal auditor won’t overrule local governments, but MacLean “performance audits” would highlight areas where communities can save money. The service will beneﬁt to the 160 local governments in B.C., especially the smaller ones, she said. “More than half of our municipalities have populations under 5,000,” Chong added. “They don’t have the capacity to do valuefor-money audits or performance audits.” Smaller communities also receive unconditional grants from the province, and a municipal auditor-general would check whether they are spent effectively. All municipalities get federal and provincial costsharing grants for major projects, and an auditor-general could compare a group of communities to see which ones are more efﬁcient. Chong said municipal tax rates wouldn’t be the ﬁrst priority, but a municipal auditor general may choose to compare rates and their effect on industrial development.

Auditor from Front Both Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have heard no details about the government’s plans but indicated reports on the auditor are being prepared for council when they return after the summer break. The B.C. government took similar steps to oversee school districts, imposing common payroll and personnel systems on boards of education and appointing “superintendents of achievement” to monitor district efforts to raise student performance. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin has no problem with the province reviewing the district’s books. Daykin “I’d just like equal access to theirs,” he said, with a laugh, but added that the people who complain about out-of-control tax increases should take a closer look at what’s actually on paper. This year, taxes went up by 5.6 per cent for the average homeowner in Maple Ridge. The district’s overall tax bill is also among the lowest in the Lower Mainland. “I think our budget process is very transparent. It is open,” Daykin added. “What I would like to have is not only a chat with the guy doing the [auditor] work but the politicians who are putting it into place.” Most home owners in Pitt Meadows saw a tax increase of around 5.95 per cent this year. Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean worries the provincial auditor will saddle already busy city staff with more work. Successive governments have downloaded

Container tax could raise $50 million TransLink from p17 TransLink spokesperson Erin McConnell said the proposed supplement will be revised to show the order of future transit upgrades if the extra sources don’t materialize. Some projects – like express bus routes on King George Boulevard and Hwy. 1 through Surrey and a LangleyWhite Rock route – would enhance southof-Fraser service, while more frequent SeaBus
runs would appeal to the North Shore. A lift in bus service, more road and cycling infrastructure and upgrades to transit stations are also promised. McConnell said the improvements would deliver an extra 20 million transit trips per year, equivalent to removing 70,000 cars a day from trafﬁc. Mayors, meanwhile, are divided on whether they can accept a plan that leaves a big contro-
versial funding source to be determined with a property tax hike as the fallback mechanism. “I don’t see how property taxes relate to transportation,” said Delta Mayor Lois Jackson. She also wants TransLink to reconsider a previously discarded idea – taxing shipping containers that pass through the port. “They take up a tremendous volume of road capacity and add to the burden of main-
taining roads and highways,” she said. A $20 charge per container would generate $50 million. Crilly said a move towards user-pay road fees or tolls is inevitable and would make the entire transportation system more efﬁcient. A ring of tolled bridges around the region could be a ﬁrst “easy step” toward road pricing, he said, although it would require the province to revise its policy.

As a parent of two rambunctious young boys, Lolita Savage is no stranger to the perils of keeping up with the clothing demand of kids. That can be expensive these days, though, and that’s what convinced her to open Little Savages Clothing Boutique, a consignment clothing store located at 12163 Harris Rd. in Pitt Meadows. “Children’s’ clothing costs so much, and seems like they only get to wear it once or twice before they grow out of it,” Savage said. “To me, it doesn’t make sense to pay full retail price for these items, and if I do, it would be nice to be able to get something back for them when my children are done wearing them. That’s where the idea for Little Savages Clothing Boutique came from.” Savage said she wants to combine the appeal of a regular clothing store with the lower prices she can offer thanks to consignment. “Why can’t consignment shopping be cool without the high prices?” she asked. “I mean, consignment shopping is great value, earth friendly, and terrific clothes. I wanted a place to shop that wasn’t high priced, that looked trendy, smelled great and felt good to be in. I wanted a place that we could be proud to tell our friends about.” The store only opened in July, but Savage said it’s been busy so far. “It’s been great,” she said. “There’s been a lot of response.” She tries to offer a wide selection of clothes, ranging from infants’ to kids’ to maternity outﬁts. “I have the stuff you need for growing babies and growing kids,” she said. “All the stuff you dig through to ﬁnd
at thrift stores, I have it, without all the digging. All the stuff you love at the mall, I have it, without the eye-popping price tags. All the unique things that you want but can’t ﬁnd anywhere else, I have it. There are unbelievable ﬁnds and deals everywhere here.” The focus is on selling high-quality products without the typically accompanying prices. “I do a lot of name brands, a lot of designer,” Savage said. Savage said one of the beneﬁts of running a consignment store is she can help people on both the buying and selling sides, providing cheap, quality clothes for buyers and allowing sellers to get some of the investment they’ve put into kids’ clothes back. “I am continually striving to provide local families with quality children’s clothing at great prices while also creating a source of ﬁnancial return on the cost of raising a family—all in a friendly and clean environment,” she said. She’s also got plans to help out local schools with their fundraising efforts this fall, donating a part of each sale to a school speciﬁed by the seller. “When someone brings clothing in, they can specify the school they want to donate to,” she said. “It will raise money for the school and leave money for them as well.” Savage said she wants the store to be an open environment where customers are comfortable. “I’d love to help you ﬁnd what you’re looking for. Drop by to check it out, chat awhile as your kids watch some movies,” she said. “Enjoy life and good shopping!” For more information, call 604-459-1022 or visit littlesavages.ca.

by Mic hel l e B ast contributor It all started with Rocky. who was my husband’s cat since childhood. He had quite the attitude (he liked to let everyone know after he visited the litter box, and used his thumbs to make ﬁsts to swipe at anyone who tried to move him). At one point my husband’s family had moved and Rocky was nowhere to be found. They let the new owners of the house know to be on the lookout for him and contact them if he came around, but they never did. It wasn’t until a year later, when my husband went back to the neighbourhood to visit a friend, that he saw Rocky sitting on the road with the usual scowl on his face. He had been on his own for a year, likely bullying unsuspecting elderly women into feeding him. My husband of course catnapped him and brought him home. My husband was absolutely heartbroken when it
Milton and Barnaby keep an eye on baby. came time to let Rocky go. It took me a long time to convince him that our house was too empty and that a new cat would cheer us up and provide us with some company. We took a visit out to the old barn known as Katie’s Place. We visited all the rooms but I was drawn to the Boy’s Pen, where the FIV and FeLuk cats were housed, knowing that these guys were harder to adopt out. We left that day, emptyhanded, with my husband needing a bit more convincing. He was worried about the cats’ uncertain life spans, but eventually agreed they deserved a
chance. Of course, in memory of Rocky, we had to get a tabby, and we selected a fellow named Milton. It didn’t take Milton long to adjust to his new home. He had a really mellow personality and liked to be around us. He seemed really happy, but we were worried about him being alone for most of the day. Later, we made another visit to Katie’s Place and picked out another FIV+ boy named Barnaby. Time went on, and eventually we once again added to our family. This time a human, not a cat.

Blue harvest The weather’s warmed up and blueberries have ripened along Rannie and Ladner roads in Pitt Meadows.
After hearing about so many pets who have been surrendered once a baby came along, we weren’t too sure how the boys would react. When we brought our little girl home from the hospital they immediately knew something was up. Their ears perked up whenever she cried and they wondered where the
noise was coming from that was disturbing their sleep. When I got up to feed her, Milton followed me into her room. Both of them soon learned that when she cried, I would have to feed her, which meant I would be sitting in one spot for an extended period of time, providing a good opportunity for plenty of pets. You could often ﬁnd me
and likes to headbutt her when she’s feeding (she still doesn’t seem to mind). He also lets her grab ﬁstfuls of fur in her uncoordinated way. Milton still doesn’t trust her enough for pets, but he enjoys being around when she’s feeding, and he always gets up whenever she cries, as though he’s genuinely concerned for her.

THE NEWS/arts&life Ridge piper at world championships Section coordinator: Monisha Martins 604-467-1122 ext. 217
Simon Fraser University has won the competition six times
(Centre) Maple Ridge piper Kevin McLean performs at the World Championship on Saturday in Glasgow, Scotland.
aple Ridge bag piper Kevin McLean and the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band placed second behind the Field Marshall Montgomery Pipe Band at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland over the weekend. The SFU band has won the competition a total of six times and has placed second nine times in the past. Last year, they placed third. This year’s competition included 230 bands, four from Canada, and involved over 8,000 musicians. The SFU Pipe Band’s chances looked promising this year as they have consistently placed in the top three in world competitions since the early 90s. “We gave our absolute best effort on both performances and feel very satisﬁed with the job we did,” Pipe Sgt. Jack Lee said, in a press release. “Field Marshall also played two excellent sets, and the judges thought they were better. We’ve moved up from our third place ﬁnish last year. And without a doubt we’ll be back to settle this next year.” The SFU band placed second in the March, Strathspey and Reel portion and fourth in the medley.
Kevin McLean warms up by the bus at the world championships on Saturday. McLean, a current SFU undergraduate student studying communications and history, began bagpiping in 2003 at the SFU summer camps. He worked his way up through the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band and is now a member of the SFU Pipe Band. The event, which drew some 50,000 spectators, took place for the most part under partly cloudy skies, despite a forecast of rain. The SFU band was fortunate to play both the MSR and the medley before a short spell of rain. Spectator Bill Brand from Cardenden, the same village lead drummer Reid Maxwell hails from, was among a large crowd gathered to watch the SFU band warm up before the medley. He quipped: “You just can’t beat them, SFU. They are the best.”
Breastfest raising cash for cancer research Fundraisers attracts large crowds due to its music festival vibe and family atmosphere by A s hley Bh a n contributor
ust like any other musician in the world, Tyler Kingston, of the Vancouver-based hardcore metal band Take the Earth Beneath Us, jumped at the opportunity to play in his hometown of Maple Ridge over the weekend and playing for a good cause turned out to be the icing on the cake. The group has been together for two and a half years but only began playing live shows two months ago, so naturally they were excited to play Breastfest; a local cancer awareness event held at Memorial Peace Park on Saturday.
“Cancer has touched everyone in some sort of way.” Tyler Kingston, Take The Earth Beneath Us
The 4th annual fundraiser was put on by the United Circle of Arts group and featured live music all day, a silent auction and information booths. In years past, the fundraiser was catered towards young adults but this year it was more family oriented with the addition of a kids zone. Roughly 800 people showed up throughout the day and although the event was free, $1,000 in donations was collected on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society. Kingston had supported the event for several years as an attendee.
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
Chad Williams, president of United Circle of Arts and organizer of Breastfest is already preparing for next year’s event. This year he received the chance to perform a 30 minute set with his band and jumped at the opportunity. “It was important to play this event. Cancer has touched everyone in some sort of way,” he said. “Me personally, my great grandmother died from cancer when I was really little.” “The reason why we jumped on board to play Breastfest was to help young people realize the issue of cancer,” Kingston added. President of the United Circle of Arts and event organizer, Chad Williams has known Kingston since high school and thought he’d be the perfect ﬁt for Breastfest. “Take the Earth Beneath Us is catching on pretty quickly and their fan base is growing quickly too,” Williams said. “When I checked out their Facebook page and I saw all their fans I knew they’d be great for the event. This event has always been based around music.” Williams said the goal of Breastfest, paid for by grants from the local rotary club and other organizations, is to unite the community and to educate people on the effects and consequences of cancer. The idea originated in 2008, after Williams’ good friend and United Circle of Arts board director Rory Speirs’ mom
Take The Earth Beneath Us jumped at the opportunity to perform at the cancer research fundraiser. was diagnosed with breast cancer and beat the disease. “We kind of thought we have to do something,” Williams said. “Just seeing how many people get affected by cancer made us feel like we should do something about it and so we thought throwing a music show would be a good idea.” Since it’s inception in 2008, the fundraiser has grown from a small musical gathering in the park to a fun family event for everyone to enjoy. “This year was a really big success for us in terms of making this a more family event,” he added. “The families really enjoyed themselves.” Williams hopes to split next year’s event into two parts. One part will focus on families, the other will focus on young adults. With Breastfest 2011 in the bag, Williams is looking forward to next year’s fundraiser and has already started contacting bands. He says getting a head start will help ease the pain of having to ﬁnd bands and sponsors last minute. “We have a lot of planning to do. We want to put a lot more time into it for next year and make it more successful.”

MAPLE RIDGE PITT MEADOWS
Students of CentreStage Dance School performed in Disneyland in July.
Youngsters dance their way to Disneyland by A shley Bh a n contributor A young group of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows dancers had the opportunity of a lifetime performing several dance numbers on stage at Disneyland in front of an international audience, last month. The dancers, who range in age from 10 to 16 are members of CentreStage Dance School in Maple Ridge, were accepted into Disneyâ€™s Performing Arts program last fall. They worked hard all year perfecting a beach party dance
number, which they performed along with other routines on July 13, 2011 at â€˜the happiest place on Earthâ€™. The program exposes young children and teenagers to the highest level of performance excellence required to work as a Disney performer. The children also get to experience a small taste of show business and attend workshops on teamwork, discipline and artistic growth held by actual Disney performers. CentreStage Dance instructor Courtny Thane said the experience was life changing for her dancers and she hopes they will
be invited again in the future. â€œTo be able to have all of these families together in â€˜the happiest place on Earthâ€™ made us realize how truly fortunate we were to be able to work with these fantastic dancers everyday,â€? she said. â€œWe are so proud of all our dancers as they are not only amazing performers but they are amazing role models for all our younger students.â€? According to Thane, CentreStage is special to the community because itâ€™s one place where anyone can feel a part of a family and feel safe, making it â€˜the happiest place in Maple Ridgeâ€™.

Children gather to sign a congratulatory banner honouring Maple Ridge’s own Cam Neely, who brought the Stanley Cup to the Cam Neely Arena on Friday to share with the local minor hockey community. Close to 500 people attended the event, lining up for hours to pose for photos with the local Hall-of-Famer and Boston Bruins president and the Stanley Cup. Robert Mangelsdorf/THE NEWS

Neely returns with Stanley Cup Hometown hero shares Cup with local minor hockey community by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Close to 500 minor hockey players and their parents filled the floor of the Cam Neely Arena on Friday morning to get a glimpse of the rink’s namesake as he brought the Stanley Cup back to Maple Ridge, the town he still considers home. “I came here in ‘76 and spent seven years here,” Neely said as he accompanied the NHL’s biggest prize. “A lot of my youth hockey and my development happened here. “I still call it home.”
If there were any sore feelings from Vancouver hockey fans after the Boston Bruins beat the Canucks in seven games in the Stanley Cup final, there was no evidence on Friday as Neely, now president of the Bruins organization, received a hero’s welcome. Neely’s Stanley Cup visit marked the third time since 2006 the most storied trophy in professional sports has included Maple Ridge on its victory tour. In 2006 and 2010, Maple Ridge’s Andrew Ladd brought the Cup home after winning it with the Carolina Hurricanes and Chicago Blackhawks, respectively. Neely said he’s always been touched by the appreciation his hometown has showed him. In February, Neely was in Maple Ridge for the unveil-
ing of a wooden carving that bears his likeness that now resides in the rink.
“I still call Maple Ridge home.” Cam Neely, Boston Bruins president “It’s very special,” he said looking over the crowd. “It’s quite an honour to have an arena named after you, and to see what they did with that piece of wood... it’s pretty special.” Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said Neely’s achievements off the ice raising money for cancer research after the disease took the lives of both his parents help make
him the perfect role model for local youngsters, as much as anything he accomplished in his 13 seasons in the NHL. “It’s a great day for Maple Ridge,” said Daykin “He was the first Maple Ridge kid to make it to the bigs... so it’s fitting this is in the arena that bears his name.” Members of the local minor hockey community were invited to private event and lined up to have their pictures taken with Neely and the Stanley Cup. As part of the Stanley Cup celebration, autographed memorabilia was auctioned off with the money raised going to fund local minor hockey. “He wanted this day to be for the kids,” said Daykin. “It really speaks to the fact that he’s a hometown hero.”
Salmonbellies bounce Burrards from WLA playoffs in Game 5 by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The Maple Ridge Burrards offence could only muster ﬁve goals as they lost to the New Westminster Salmonbellies on the road Thursday night, eliminating the Burrards from the
2011 Western Lacrosse Association playoffs, four games to one. Burrards goalie Drew Dickie made 31 saves, but was outdone at the other end of the box by ‘Bellies netminder Tyler Richards, who turned away 40 of 45 shots he faced as New West won 8-5. The Burrards took an early 3-0
lead in the ﬁrst period when the Salmonbellies scored in the dying seconds of the period to cut the lead to two. It was all New Westminster in the middle frame, as they scored four unanswered goals to pull ahead of the Burrards 5-3. The Burrards managed to tie the
game with a pair of goals in the latter half of the period, but again New West scored another late goal to take the momentum and a one-goal lead into the dressing room for the second intermission. The Salmonbellies shut out the Burrards in the third period while scoring a pair of goals to put the
game out of reach for Maple Ridge. Rookie forward Riley Loewen had a hat trick to lead the Burrards offence. Curtis Dickson had a goal and three assists, while Aaron Pascas had a goal and an assist. Joel Dalgarno picked up two assists, while Dickie had one. See Burrards, p34

Knights open season at Round Table tourney Staff Reporter The Meadowridge Knights community football program kicked off their 2011 season with their annual Knights of the Round Table tournament last weekend at the Albion Fairgrounds. In all, 26 teams from throughout the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan participated in the two day event.
The tournament began on Saturday with seven teams competing in the Atom Division. Cloverdale took ﬁrst place by winning all three of their games, while both the Meadowridge atom Blue and Gold teams played well. Six teams competed in the Junior Bantam Division, including two teams from Kelowna. The Meadowridge Knights ﬁnished ﬁrst, winning all three of their games while not allow-
ing a single point to be scored against them throughout the tournament. North Surrey won the Peewee Division with a record of three wins against only one loss. Royal City had the same overall record, but was edged out for top spot based on points scored against. The Meadowridge Gold and Blue teams both had strong performances. In the Bantam Division, North Surrey took the title by go-
ing undefeated. Their closest game was against the Meadowridge Knights. The game was scoreless until Surrey scored a touchdown in the dying minutes of the game. This exhibition tournament was the ﬁrst competitive action for most of the teams. The teams have two more weeks of practices and exhibition games before the regular season starts on Labour Day weekend. firstname.lastname@example.org

SHARMA Rajendra (Raj) Born in Ba, Fiji Islands, on December 10, 1935, passed away peacefully in Maple Ridge on August 4, 2011, surrounded by family. Raj was the fifth child of Pundit Prabhu Dayal and Ganga Jali. He married Manorma, his “angel”, on December 16, 1961 and emigrated to Canada on November 22, 1963. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from UBC and his Masters in Education and Counseling Psychology from UVIC, and was a well-liked teacher and counselor who worked in McBride, Powell River and Kelowna. He was actively involved in various volunteer organizations. Raj was well known for his sense of humour, social fearlessness, wisdom, integrity, and kind and compassionate nature. Raj is survived by his loving wife Manorma, his daughters Arti and Abha, his sons-in-law Shailendra and Christopher, his granddaughters Ashleen and Shaileen. The funeral service was held on Monday, August 8, 2011, at Garden Hill Funeral home, Maple Ridge.
