The grassroots movement against global financial inequality and corporate greed has landed in Maple Ridge. Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protest that began in New York City a month ago, the Maple Ridge version is still in its nascent stage and has yet to pick a location or date for the occupation. The charge is being led by Daniel Epp, a 38-year-old father who doesn’t Occupy Vancouver protest. fit the mould of a professional protester. Epp spent 12 years working in the casino industry, climbing the rungs into management until he quit this past spring. He’s seen greed and corruption at its worst. It’s why the Occupy movement, with its focus on inclusion and equality that has spread to more than 80 countries, resonated with him. “I couldn’t sit back,” said Epp, who attended the first day of protest in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Saturday. “Without sounding like an idealist, our democratic system is a joke. It is appalling that 99 per cent of people can agree with something, yet all these corporations or politicians can stand in the way of it.” See Protest, p15

Vigil for two young souls alike S tor y by Monisha Mar tins

F

rom a laptop perched lop-sided on a camping chair, Beckie Dyer’s favourite songs stream into the parking lot of the Ramada Inn, mixing with the din of traffic.

Her mother Debbie is busy pinning delicate green and purple butterflies on jackets, as friends and family fill an area a few feet from where Beckie and her boyfriend Johnny De Oliveira were killed in Pitt Meadows a year ago Wednesday. Johnny’s mom Audrey carefully tends a memorial to the couple, It is filled with photographs, flowers, poems, Portuguese and German flags. The memorial is creeping higher and higher on the hydro pole. It’s been a difficult day for both mothers. “A year has gone by, but it just seems like yesterday,” says Debbie, as Audrey nods in agreement. She still hears stories about Johnny from his friends, still learning new things about her son. “Johnny was the same nature as Beckie, he was just quiet,” says Debbie, while Audrey lists off her son’s favourite activities – snowboarding, or “shredding pow”, off-roading and playing on his XBox. Beckie, 19, and Johnny, 21, died around midnight Oct. 19, 2010, when a Toyota Paseo heading east on Lougheed Highway skidded sideways over a concrete median near Harris Road. The Toyota flipped over and slammed into the roof of the Suzuki Swift that Beckie and Johnny were traveling in. Beckie and a friend had just been picked up by her boyfriend from a sold-out Justin Bieber concert in Vancouver. They were returning home to Pitt Meadows after dropping off Beckie’s friend in Maple Ridge. They were just two blocks away from the apartment they shared with her mom, Debbie. Beckie was a girl who’d run out to help a friend without delay, who volunteered countless hours for the Variety Club, the Network for Animals and Ridge Meadows Hospital, who’d take in strays like her kitten Willow. Johnny was the kind of guy who’d drop everything to help his beloved Beckie. He fixed her grandpa’s wheel chair, then went on to fix several others in the care home. Audrey and Debbie are now using their grief to influence change. To them, it’s a way to pay homage to their children – two souls whose clearly had touched many people.

Petition The Dyer and De Oliviera families want people to send letters into the federal and provincial government to demand better service from the justice system. You can also sign a petition calling for a Wrongful Death Act @ mapleridgenews.com.

Those people – their family and friends – a crowd totalling more than 50, huddled in the parking lot to remember them, some crying as purple and lime-green balloons drifted up into the sky. The mothers have joined others who have lost their children in lob-

bying for a Wrongful Death Act and mandatory minimum sentences for drivers involved in fatal crashes. Debbie has written to the B.C. premier, solicitor general, as well as federal ministers, pleading for change. “We also want to be able to help

others,” says Audrey. If Beckie thought something was wrong, she would fight to change it, added Debbie. Beckie’s aunt, Jackie Goolevitch, beams with pride when she looks at the crowd gathered to remember her niece.

“She did more in her short life to better this world than most adults,” she says. Andelina Kristina Hecimovic faces two counts of dangerous driving causing death in connection with the crash that killed Beckie and Johnny. Investigators allege Hecimovic, then 23, was driving aggressively when she crashed. She has pleaded not guilty and will be tried next year by judge and jury.

Car Care with Cyril Barry

AUTUMN IN AUTO LAND I don’t know about you but Autumn is my favourite time of year. It’s still warm during the day so you can get a lot’s of chores accomplished, but it's getting nippy late at nite and early morning. You’re past the heat of the summer but not quite into that infamous rainy season which seems to be so prominent around our parts. A period of adjustment both for us and the vehicles we drive. If we put a little effort in now, while the weather is still nice, the vehicles we all drive should make it thru the winter, all going well. The big thing with modern cars these days is the dominance of electronic computer controlled sub systems. Virtually everything is monitored and/or controlled by a module, relay or computer. The mechanical wearing parts and their necessary maintenance and repair hasn’t changed much in recent years, but the electronics of these vehicles never stops changing. To ensure your vehicle’s reliability doesn’t turn sour with the weather, you need to ensure your vehicle’s computer controlled electronics and related parts are ok, as well as the regular items you have checked out each fall. The need for this service hasn’t changed over the years, but the probability of a vehicle breakdown by ignoring it has increased dramatically! If you deal with an automotive full service repair facility who can diagnose and repair the entire car and you’re a happy customer, by all means get them to check it out for you. If not, I humbly suggest that you not entrust this type of service to just any shop with the words auto repair on their sign. Instead, take it to a full service, government certified, independent auto repair facility of your choice. The electronics of your vehicle is complicated and there’s a lot more going on under the hood these days. To successfully repair modern vehicles you need the right people. The auto tech with the most experience and training when it comes to the entire vehicle and its computer electronics are found at your nearest dealer or independent, government certified, full service auto repair shops. Wherever you decide to go, you need to make the call and set up an appointment as soon as possible. Old man winter is just around the next corner or two. So do not forget, or put it off any longer, as you do not want to get caught with vehicle troubles when the weather is poor. Remember to ask your service provider to check out your computer controlled systems. We can scan the computer for stored trouble codes and determine if you have all systems go. If not we can then pinpoint the trouble spot and advise you of the necessary steps to remedy the small problems before they multiply into big expensive problems. An ounce of prevention will save a pound of cure. You get the idea. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call.

Yes and no, says ICBC and the Justice Institute of B.C. While new vehicles, as of September, are all equipped with stability control computer-controlled systems that can control inputs on each wheel to minimize spin outs or skids, no technology can make up for stupid driving or recognize all road conditions.

Driving Centre at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport on Tuesday. Media climbed into a new Ford Escape, gunned it down a straight away to a series of traffic cones, then had to make sharp, evasive turns, according to last-minute signals. Piles of boxes that went flying, as in the TV show Canada’s Worst Driver, if the

vehicle couldn’t stay in the lane, added to some effects when media drivers screwed up. To make their point, the track was flooded, to simulate driving in the rain. Prosch said a difference of 10 kilometres an hour can make the difference between losing control and staying in control on a wet surface, if evasive moves are needed. It could be possible to make a sudden lane change at 60 kilometres an hour, but lose control at 70 km/h, on a wet road. And often, if drivers are able to avoid the

object, such as a cyclist or pedestrian darting out, the difficult part is moving back into the lane safely. “Posted speed limits are ideal for dry roads,” added Alex Lee, manager of road safety programs. Driving is more than just the road, said Lee. “It’s the road and the darkness. Just change the frame of mind is the important thing.” The Pacific Traffic Education Centre, part of the JI is locating to Pitt Meadows in November and just got a new track coat of asphalt laid down on its

training track. “Many drivers don’t realize that when they drive too fast for the road conditions, their risk of crashing increases significantly,” said Fiona Temple, ICBC’s road safety director. “The reality is that the posted speed limit is only for ideal or dry road conditions. You can help make our roads safer by slowing down – you’ll see more of the road and be better equipped to respond to the unexpected.”

Drive safe • When driving on wet roads, increase your following distance to four seconds. • Slow down. Remember, the faster you drive, the longer it takes to stop on wet roads. • Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working order and you have sufficient windshield wiper fluid. • Check that your tires are inflated at the correct pressure and appropriately rated for the weather conditions.

Great things come in small packages. The fire, caused by an electrical bypass, also damaged an adjacent house. Phil Melnychuk/ THE NEWS

Growop fire damages homes Dog trapped inside, rescued A marijuana grow operation caused a fire that damaged two homes in east Maple Ridge on Wednesday. Called in by neighbours around 3:50 p.m., the house on 101A Avenue in Albion was badly damaged by the fire. Fire trucks from two halls were called to battle the blaze.

Maple Ridge fire chief Dane Spence said the fire was caused by an electrical bypass. The flames raced up the wall into the attic and firefighters had to break through a door to rescue a dog trapped inside. The fire also damaged siding of an adjacent house. “It is a hazard to have one of these beside you,” Spence said of the growop.

Affordable. Invisible

A woman who lives nearby said it wasn’t easy for firefighters to get into the home. “They smashed the door and couldn’t get in. They smashed the window and there was plywood [behind the blinds]. Scary.” Ridge Meadows RCMP have now taken control of the property and continue to investigate the fire. The dog has been taken to the SPCA.

The ghetto is gone It was fitting that Mayor Ernie Daykin sat in the cab of the excavator and ceremoniously delivered the first blow to flatten the most notorious housing complex in the history of Maple Ridge. The rest of council joined neighbours on Fraser Street to watch what was a joyous occasion for south Haney. For almost a decade, Northumberland Court was a haven for crime – drugs, weapons, rape, prostitution. If someone robbed a cab driver, police found the suspect at Northumberland, which police raided several times, and found firearms. The fire and bylaws departments conducted numerous safety inspections there. Municipal council, staff and lawyers fought to have former majority owner Jack Athwal clean the place up, get control of the tenants, or knock the place down. It was the cumulative efforts of them all, combined with area residents that led to Wednesday’s partial demolition. The rest should come down next week. Credit also goes to Ghalib Rawji, the Vancouver developer who bought Northumberland last year and promises to forge ahead with plans to build new housing on the property, giving new blood to the neighbourhood and relief to those who have endured one disturbance after another. And don’t forget realtor Ron Antalek, who helped broker the deal. All the problems in the area have not been resolved, nor will they disappear in the time it takes to strike down a wall with the long arm of an excavator. But sometimes you have to tear things down to start anew, to right a wrong, so hope can he born. South Haney, known for years as the ghetto, now has that – hope. All those who had a part in making that happen deserve thanks. The ghetto is gone. – The News Tell us what you think @ mapleridgenews.com

It helps to know about kleptocracy T

o understand what Occupy Vancouver at the art gallery was about, you had to read the banners, and talk to the people beneath them. It also helps to know the word kleptocracy: “Government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain Along the Fraser Jack Emberly at the expense of the governed.” Most of the signs reflect this central idea – government ignoring the needs of people while deflecting criticism. The HST implementation, the RCMP’s on-going denial of misconduct, the DFO’s “unholy alliance” with fish farms are recent examples. Wall Street’s greed and government policies that enable corporations to amass wealth while failing to make life better for the “99” percent is the focus now. To see the diverse ways kleptocracy impacts ordinary folk, look at what they print on their banners. Like the sign held by a little kid sitting on his dad’s shoulders: “education is a right; not a privilege.” It used to be. But, under-funding of the educational system has changed that. The issue – as always, but never resolved – is class size and composition. George Abbott’s promise of a little more money to special education won’t do it. College students face financial hurdles,

Q

uestion of the week:

higher tuition fees, exorbitant textbook prices. In my day, a kid got a bursary just by trying hard at school. There was work in the main library to help make ends meet, summer jobs to pay for next year, opportunity for a career after graduation. Today, university grads lucky enough to find a job – especially in their chosen field – face inadequate pay and benefits. A sign held by a member of the B.C. Government Employees Union reads: “Working people should not have to live in poverty.” Yet, corporate CEOs suck up fat bonuses and lifetime pensions, MLAs steal a 30 percent pay hike. Maple Ridge councillors allot themselves a 15 per cent jump in pay, and claim they deserve it. But, the 99 per cent gets zero over three years. Gary Grigg, of Maple Ridge, in uniform, carries a sign protesting pension changes that will add financial hardship to veterans. I saw a sign that read: “Greed has no place in democracy. Another banner read: “We can’t feed the poor, but we can fund war.” Inequities between the needy and the wealthy and powerful weren’t missed by teachers in the crowd, or the Hospital Workers Union member I talked to. “I believe in the rights of the worker,” he said in the midst of folks dancing to a band playing a tune from the ’70s. Off to one side, a young woman displayed a sign that read: “Free hugs.” She was busy. Another sign: “When the power of love

Will you vote in this year’s civic elections? Yes: 95% – No: 5% (71 votes)

overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” Another said: “Things should stay the same, if we want to exhaust our resources ... and die.” This sentiment was echoed by Jim, an oncologist as he marched with his daughter. “I’m well off,” the doctor told me, “but I’m one of the 99 per cent. I’m with them.” “Have you ever taken part in a protest?” I asked. “Not since Vietnam. But this is important. There’s not reasonable opportunity for people anymore because of corporate greed. Society can’t sustain this situation any longer.” Another sign: “Don’t hate, meditate.” On a stretch of lawn facing the art gallery stairs, a circle of people of all ages meditate as mellow-looking police smile down on them. Why not? Earlier, someone at a microphone referred to them as “peace officers.” This crowd wasn’t looking to destroy property, but to advance social causes. I remember thinking, ‘My God, I haven’t even seen anyone smoking, even a cigarette. Remember when all you had to do was work hard, and do your job to earn a promotion or pay raise? It was part of the unwritten social contract. Alexis works in servicing and marketing. “There’s no possibility of advancement or greater earning power in my field,” she said. Someone nearby waved a sign that describes how many young people feel like Alexis does. See Emberly, p7

THE NEWS/letters chat@mapleridgenews.com Save 15 cents From: Hugh62, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Province moves to raise gas tax for TransLink (mapleridgenews.com). I think it is time that we seriously consider exiting the Greater Vancouver organization and look to cost-share with municipalities such as Mission and Abbotsford. Just think, with the stroke of a pen, we would save 15 cents a litre on gas. From: AlbionSunDog, posted on mapleridgenews.com. I haven’t yet been able to find an explanation for why Mayor Ernie Daykin voted in favour of the additional gas tax. He should have voted against it because it would have still passed, but he would have avoided looking like he was simply towing the line.

Make it relevant From: davemacdonald, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: B.C. Views: ‘Be a voter’ (mapleridgenews.com). I’ve just moved back to Maple Ridge after eight years in Vancouver and New Westminster. Overall, the average person here seems more disconnected from what’s happening on a civic government level, but there seems to be a lot of people excited about what the community is generally up to. I find that gap to be an interesting one. There’s a perception that Maple Ridge is a bit of a bedroom community and perhaps that’s part of it, but it’s really tough to gauge. I’d love to see a campaign that really puts what civic governments are responsible for front and centre – getting people to vote is one thing, but making it relevant is another.

Public domain From: 8canadiangrl8, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Mayor now has some competition (The News, Oct. 19). When you throw your hat in the ring you had better be ready for citizens with all sorts of assumptions. You have entered the public domain. People don’t run to be mayor because they`re into charity. Our job as citizens is to uncover the underlying motivation of the candidates and assess their integrity. A one-on-one meeting with a candidate who has a script or a series of talking points is not going to cut it.

‘No longer sustainable’ Emberly from p6 “Debt + B.A.+ minimum wage = indentured servitude.” A kleptomaniac is a person who steals for no logical reason. She can’t stop herself. Society has to ban her from shopping until she’s completed treatment. Kleptocrats are folks in government whose enable the boundless greed of the rich, and always find ways to rationalize the action, excuse a guilty conscience. They won’t cure themselves willingly, and we won’t flush them out at election time, or end corporate greed by flipping CEOs. The “movement” – not a protest – of the 99 per cent will work, though, if it lasts. It has to. As doctor Jim says: “We can’t sustain this situation any longer.” • On the Ridunkulist: On SkyTrain from New Westminster: “We apologize for delays,” announced the automatic voice. “Track repairs ahead.” The guy next to me knew the real reason. “I wouldn’t put it past TransLink to keep us from getting into Occupy Vancouver.” Kleptocracy breeds conspiracy theories. We were sardines in a can. Yet, at every stop more people squeezed in, nearly squished by closing doors. Finally, I said, loudly: “Car full, get the next one.” Had to. There were no TransLink people on duty, just us, and that soft, automated voice. Hello, Translink CEO. That’s dangerous, and you’re on my Ridunkulist.

Are our streets any safer now? EDITOR, THE NEWS:

Re: Woman attacked downtown (The News, Oct. 19). In reading Wednesday’s edition of The News, I was literally enraged by three articles. Sadly, I’m uncertain as to whether the RCMP are to blame or the judiciary. Fact is, heads should be rolling and citizens damned angry. A female employee of a downtown business goes out back of the location to throw trash into a dumpster and is assaulted, grabbed from behind, tackled to the ground (fortunately able to fend off the attacker, lest, goodness knows what the end result of that could’ve been). RCMP state the suspect escaped, however the story takes a sad path as it seems local businesses people were not informed of this assault by the police. I have no idea what lead to that reasoning, but to me any determination to do so was flawed. If you were a secretary downtown, a boss responsible for your staff, would you not want to know there’s a potential rapist lurking in your alley? Then two men were arrested after another assaulted, granted liquor

was involved in an apparent targeted attack. Another item states one man was found badly beaten (so badly he’s still in hospital with serious injuries) with suspects successfully tracked down and arrested. The story ends in a suspect charged, but who has since been released from custody. It would seem beating someone senseless and leaving them badly injured by the side of the road as you go home isn’t deemed a risk to the public considering you very well could bump into this guy tonight. Then two teens were stabbed in Maple Ridge. One victim was airlifted to hospital, but is expected to survive. The suspect ran away, gets tracked by a police dog and arrested. It is determined it was not a random attack. The suspect was charged, then released from custody with a promise to appear in court at a later date. I’ll spare you my angst, suffice to say, I cannot imagine a parent anywhere who can understand how someone can stab two people at a party, run from the police and be sent home

with the promise you’ll come back later. Big flipping deal about him going to court later, I bloody well hope so, but why on earth is he walking the same streets we are, as we speak. He just stabbed two people. I always try to be on the side of the RCMP when they get criticized, with the belief I wasn’t there. I’m not a police officer, who am I to judge such circumstances. If I call them, they come running and that’s what counts. Far be it for me to complain. But the judiciary, well that is a whole other thing – what people get away with floors me. I had my little run-in with the law in my teens, I was cut more slack than even I thought I deserved. Fact is, though, the whole experience was an eye-opener and life-changer, so I’m both grateful for it and understand the whole principle – it works also for many first offenders. Then, again, I shoplifted, I didn’t beat someone bloody or stab anyone. In closing, I get the point: in one attack you don’t want to cause undue excitement in announcing the woman being assaulted; in oth-

ers, because they were not random, or as they were targeted, the risk to the public is low, so opinion is, release them pending. My question is, whose best interests are being served in doing so? I sure do not feel it is mine and ours, and people should be as screaming angry, as I am, at the end result. Add onto all this, considering the RCMP’s image has taken a beating recently, here the RCMP are catching the people – a well deserved huge pat on the back definitely. But then the courts release these people (pending a court appearance at a later date). Just think, if they turned around and re-offended – how stupid in ineffectual the RCMP would look, keeping in mind they did a noble job apprehending the offenders. They must be as livid as we are when people get caught for serious stuff and merely walk away before the ink on the paperwork is barely dry. It’s enough to make your head spin, and is actually pretty scary. ROBERT ADAMS MAPLE RIDGE

Salmon mystery needs complete answer The battle of the scientists is over. More than 170 witnesses testified. Nearly 2,000 reports and documents were entered as evidence. Now, the Cohen Commission is preparing to decide Commentary why the Fraser Jeff Nagel River’s sockeye salmon have been in a dangerous downward spiral. Opponents of net-pen aquaculture have relentlessly spun the hearings as an open-shut case against salmon farms and stepped up campaigns to shut them down. It’s not quite that simple. Duelling researchers gave contradictory evidence on whether diseases or parasites from fish farms may be killing off wild sockeye. That doesn’t mean fish farms aren’t bad for salmon. The farms may, as critics claim, act as a breeding ground for pathogens, transmitting them to passing wild salmon at a critically vulnerable stage in their migration. Much of the evidence before the inquiry, however, points to multiple different culprits, from ocean predators to changing water temperatures. The commission has also looked at

everything from urban sewage and industrial pollution along the lower Fraser to the impacts of logging and mining upriver. A death-by-a-thousand-cuts verdict would admittedly be less satisfying than simply lynching one perceived bogeyman – one that we could definitely do something about. But B.C. needs the most complete answer to this fishy mystery it can get. It would be tragic if an eco-war succeeds in stamping out fish farms, only to see B.C.’s wild sockeye continue to decline because we weren’t vigilant enough in uncovering other threats and trying to address them. Inquiry head Judge Bruce Cohen will hear final submissions from all sides in November before preparing his final report, due by next June. As the inquiry moves into its final phase, it’s important to remember that the loss of B.C.’s wild sockeye stocks would have far-reaching repercussions beyond our dining choices. With the sockeye may go many of the orcas, bears, birds and even freshwater fish in parts of B.C. That’s because salmon are, in many ways, the lifeblood of our watersheds. They act like a pipeline, bringing ocean nutrients far upstream. Wildlife from tiny insects to the biggest predators feast on their spawnedout carcasses and even trees are fertilized. Research has proven how salmon

act as an extension of the forest’s root system, allowing the trees to draw nourishment not just from the immediate soil, but from the krill of the North Pacific. The loss of wild salmon, some people fear, may loosen habitatprotection laws, opening B.C. not just to more fish farms and hatcheries, but hydro dams, offshore oil drilling and more industrial pollution.

It would be tragic if an eco-war succeeds in stamping out fish farms, only to see B.C.’s wild sockeye continue to decline because we weren’t vigilant enough in uncovering other threats and trying to address them. For First Nations, whose heritage, culture, traditional diet and social customs are so deeply interwoven with the salmon, their loss is unfathomable. Even if Judge Cohen fails to come up with a single suspect, we need his best assessment of what’s gone wrong and how we can keep this marvel of nature for generations to come.

Northumberland from front Then the real operator took over and within minutes, one of the four remaining buildings at Northumberland Court on Fraser Street was a pile of shredded twoby-fours, roof trusses, stucco and bits of twisted metal. After years of bylaw enforcement, legal wrangling and politics, Northumberland – aka, the ghetto – is no more. The notorious Northumberland is mostly now a heap of rubble, soon to be carted to a dump. Another building was torn down Thursday. The final two will fall next week. Then the ground will be scraped clean and new buildings will rise in what used to be a big blight on downtown Maple Ridge. “To quote Mr. Rogers, it’s a wonderful day in the neighbourhood,” Daykin said.

In the developing world people struggle to get drinking water, sanitary sewers, schools and basic things like roads, fire protection and policing. We have all these things in our community. All of these services are provided by local government. While we think of these essential services as ‘rights’, fewer than one in four people are voters in their local elections in some BC communities. The health of our community, and our families, depends on these important services. Being a voter is the way we earn and exercise our ‘rights.’ Be a voter, it’s my prescription for a strong community and a strong ‘you.’

Madison Sherman, 3, looks for four-leafed-clovers in front of her home as Northumberland is torn down behind her Wednesday afternoon. watch the tearing down of the first building, while neighbours lined the streets to do the same. “It’s been a nightmare,” said Jim Osler, who lives nearby. “It’s been a longtime coming.” With the complex gone, it should be easier for other landlords to rent in the area, he added. “It dragged out. It dragged out. It dragged out,” added Ron Smith, who lives in the new condos across the street. “The whole neighbourhood will change now,” another bystander added. Watching from a distance, with her two tykes just outside her house at the south end of the complex was Cheryl Sherman. She has lived next door for a year, then one house away from the troubled complex for three years. Even before she moved to Maple Ridge, when she was in Prince George, she had read about the complex. It’s been a long time coming and most of the street will be celebrating, she said. While she’d lived nearby during the heyday when police, fire and bylaw officers were regular

visitors, her family had no real problems with the neighbours. Sherman, though, wonders how the complex deteriorated so badly and why residents continued to pay rent. Still, her family managed to co-exist with the drama next door. “We were pretty lucky actually,” she said, adding they didn’t have any problem with break-ins or crime. Councillors were in a jubilant mood at being able to see the end of the complex. “I don’t think you can understand the feeling,” said Coun. Cheryl Ashlie. She never thought it would take three years, all of the present council’s term, to see the demolition. It was important to follow the proper steps and work through the legal issues, added Coun. Judy Dueck. “We have no choice but to follow the law.” Coun. Craig Speirs said he considered the demolition one of the current council’s successes. Council wanted to be more aggressive in moving on it, but couldn’t.

Once redevelopment begins, “it will send a big signal to the rest of the downtown,” he added. Vancouver developer Ghalib Rawji says he’s continuing with his plans to redevelop the site. “It’s a pleasure to be a part of this,” said Rawji, who bought the condos from Jack Athwal and four other owners. “Looking forward to building now,” he said. Despite glooming world economics, he’s proceeding with plans to build 29 townhouses, apartments and some commercial space on the lot. “We’ve got a great product, great pricing. I’m not worried at all.” Plus, by the time it comes to market after March 2013, the Harmonized Sales Tax should be gone and the more real-estate friendly GST and PST system will be back in place. “That’s a five-per-cent discount right there,” he added. The machinery moved in after a protracted process that finally saw Maple Ridge council issue a demolition order in July after the buildings had been entered and wiring tampered with.

Pitt trustee candidates acclaimed by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The race for who will represent Pitt Meadows as school trustee on the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Board of Education ended before it began. Marcela Boggio formally withdrew as a candidate on Tuesday, leaving just incumbent Eleanor Palis and newcomer Sarah Nelson to vie for the two available trustee positions. As a result, both Palis and Nelson will be acclaimed as trustees, and their names will not be included on the Nov. 19 ballot. Chief elections officer Laurie Darcus said she couldn’t recall this happening in Pitt Meadows in recent history.

“It’s not common for a city this size,” she said. “In smaller, rural areas it’s quite a common occurrence, but not here.” Boggio said she dropped out of the race because she thought Palis and Nelson would be better equipped to serve the parents of Pitt Meadows. “I’ve been to a number of [school board] meetings and noticed a lack of positive energy from some of [the trustees],” she said. “I thought I could bring passion and dedication to the table. “I believe Sarah and Eleanor have that energy, and will be better prepared for the job.” Boggio, who immigrated to Canada from Peru with her husband and two children seven years ago, didn’t rule out

Candidates at The ACT If you find it difficult to decide who to vote for among the 28 people running for council, you might have a better idea after the Democracy Fair, Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Arts Centre Theatre in Maple Ridge. The free event involves candidates setting up tables in the lobby, where they can meet voters, display campaign literature

running for trustee in the future. Palis said while she is relieved that she doesn’t have to go through the stress of running an election campaign, she is disappointed she doesn’t get a chance to earn a clear mandate from Pitt Meadows voters. “Definitely, this takes the stress off, but I still want to feel like I’ve earned it,” she said. Palis said she hopes the lack of trustee candidates is an indication people are happy with the job the school board is doing. Nelson, a first-time candidate for school trustee, was thrilled to find out

and items for a silent auction. Proceeds from the auction will go to the candidates to help with campaign costs, and the $50 registration fee that each will have to pay. One of the candidates for council, Wendy Cook, came up with the idea, while her group, the Peace Twig Fundraising Association, is paying for the building rental. But to keep things impartial, Marie Brothers has taken over the organizing of the event.

she was being acclaimed to the board, and said she hopes to be an enthusiastic advocate for public education while on the board. Nelson has three children in the public school system, and has previously chaired the district’s gifted children association. “I’m not a politician, but [school board] feels like a place where I might be able to have a positive change,” she said. “I want to make sure teachers have the resources they need to do their jobs ... and if the traditional classroom setting doesn’t work for some children, develop alternatives.”

BE A VOTER Nov. 19th

Brothers just announced the event, which starts at 1 p.m. and goes until 6:30 p.m. and is not sure of the response from the politicians. In addition to the two contenders for mayor, 11 people are seeking five spots on Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board. Deadline for candidate registration is Oct. 23.

Greg Moore centre ‘a leading facility’ Youth centre marks 10th anniversary by Phi l M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Y

ou provide a place for a kid to relax, feel safe, enjoy some fun and comradeship – and the odds go way up for him or her to make the leap into adulthood. It’s the principle the Greg Moore Youth Centre has followed since opening Oct. 13, 2001. “Recreation is probably the most preventive tool in the world and it costs a lot less than prevention,” youth recreation manager Tony Cotroneo said Monday. The centre marked its 10th anniversary last Saturday with cake, tributes and award announcements. The adjoining Maple Ridge Leisure Centre also marked its 30th anniversary. While it’s already a decade old, Cotroneo says there still isn’t another youth centre exactly like it in the country. “I don’t know if there’s a big place like this for young people in Canada, anywhere,” he says. All of the youth dropin centres in the Lower Mainland, usually only classroom space with no place for physical activity, could fit into the Greg Moore Youth Centre, he adds. After 10 years in service, he wouldn’t make any changes to the $2-million building, which includes a social room, computer room and activity floor. Being able to close portions allows flexibility in its operation. “The building hasn’t changed. It’s still quite state of the art. There’s nothing I would change. I think about that all the time.” One reason the building works so well is because all potential users were consulted in the design, so it was built right from the start. The centre also remains connected to its namesake. The Greg Moore Foundation, formed by parents Ric and Donna Moore, in honour of the Maple Ridge race car driver killed in a racing accident Oct. 31, 1999, has donated $12,000 yearly to the centre for its summer employment programs. The foundation also gave $40,000 during construction to pay for the climbing wall.

Youth from p11 And for youth who stop in at the centre, it actually works the other way. “The peer pressure comes from the good stuff, not the bad stuff – and I have seen that from Day 1.” The centre operates the Keeping Kids in School program during the daytime, allowing students options to the regular classroom. Every night from 6 to 9:30 p.m., it’s drop-in time for teenagers, with plenty of youth workers around. There’s a misconception that the centre is only for youth at risk, but kids from all of walks of life drop by. Having said that, because of the hours it’s open, kids from across the spectrum show up – up to 100 a night – looking for a place to do homework or play some floor hockey or just hang out for a bit. “Our role is to do what we’re really good at, which is to build relationships and provide social and recreational opportunities.” This summer, the centre was awarded the B.C. Parks and Recreation Association facility excellence award for 2011. Cotroneo reviewed the philosophy of the centre, which is encourage kids to change from being a non-participant to being a participant, to become a volunteer, then a leader, with skills that eventually lead to employability. “Whether that takes six months or five years, we want to take people through that growth.”

Schools ban ‘pimp, ho’ costumes Students will be asked to change by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Schools across the district are taking a stand against inappropriate Halloween costumes that glamourize sexual exploitation and a criminal lifestyle. The Children of the Street Society, a nonproďŹ t organization dedicated to preventing the sexual exploitation of children, has launched a national campaign raising awareness about inappropriate Halloween costumes, something

the group feels glamorize a criminal lifestyle. “Dressing up as a ‘pimp’ or ‘ho’ glamorizes the sexual exploitation of children and youth, which is a form of abuse and modern day slavery,� states Diane Sowden, executive director of Children of the Streets. “Not only are we asking the community to be socially responsible by wearing Halloween costumes which do not glamorize the sexual exploitation of our children and youth, we’re also asking children, youth and adults to take the notion of social responsibility one step further by not wearing costumes which glamorize

the gang lifestyle.� Pitt Meadows secondary is one school that will be banning students from dressing up in such costumes. The school’s website states that students will be asked to go home and change if they wear inappropriate costumes that break the school’s dress code or glamorize the sex trade or a gang lifestyle. Schools across the district are similarly banning the typically suggestive costumes associated with Halloween. “We certainly don’t throw our code of conduct away because it is Halloween,� said Garibaldi secondary

principal Grant Frend. “If a student shows up with an inappropriate costume, they will have to leave it at the ofďŹ ce or go home and change.â€? Beth Todd, who operates Jazz-Ma-Tazz Dance and Costumes in Maple Ridge, says the stereotypical sexy Halloween costume is less popular this year than in previous Halloweens. “For women, the costumes are becoming less riskĂŠ,â€? she said. “I think people are tired of it.â€?

Halloween not as scary as it used to be by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Halloween can be a scary time for local schools as vandals invariably try to target them, breaking windows, setting ďŹ res and spraying grafďŹ ti. School board chair Ken Clarkson said the district will be stepping up security to prevent damage to district property this year. In addition to leaving exterior lights on at all schools, the district will also be doubling security guard patrols for the weekend prior to Halloween and through Monday night, the eve of Oct. 31. District staff will be on-call all day during that time. “The schools in cen-

tral Maple Ridge seem to be the worst hit,� said Clarkson. “We see a lot of broken glass. It costs the district a lot of money, so we want to put a stop to it.� Annually, vandalism costs the school district close to $500,000. The district has an anti-vandalism hotline set up to help district staff and police respond quickly if someone is spotted damaging school property. However, the hotline only works if residents use it and report suspicious activity at local schools. “We will respond 24-7,� said Clarkson. Garibaldi secondary principal Grant Frend said his school tries to take a proactive approach with students

to prevent vandalism. “Luckily, it hasn’t been that bad,â€? he said. “We do a lot of community-building events within the school, and I think that’s helping. The kids recognize that this is their school, and when they take ownership of it, they’re less likely to [commit acts of vandalism].â€? Maple Ridge Fire Chief Dane Spence said the 2004 bylaw banning the sale and possession of ďŹ reworks has led to a decrease in ďŹ re-related calls on Halloween. “Since family ďŹ reworks were taken out of the equation, there’s been a lot less spot ďŹ res and ďŹ reworksrelated calls,â€? he said. “It can be a busy night, but it’s markedly different than how it used

to be.â€? However, Spence warned that jack-olantern candles and sparklers can still pose a ďŹ re risk, and recommended trick-or-treaters wear reective gear to make sure they can be seen by passing motorists in the dark. Halloween won’t be completely without ďŹ reworks, as the Maple Ridge Lions Club are sponsoring a free public ďŹ reworks display on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.

Cleaning Water Mains The District of Maple Ridge Operations Department will be commencing the annual ushing/cleaning program starting at 210th Street working east to 228th Street between River Road and 132nd Avenue, for approximately twelve (12) weeks beginning October 3, 2011. This maintenance work will improve the water quality; however, during this cleaning process some residents could experience water pressure drops and milky or dirty water. You may take the following steps to correct the problem:

1. MILKY WATER: Open tap slightly to bleed air from the water lines. 2. DIRTY WATER: Turn an outside tap on until the water becomes clear. This temporary interruption in service will be as brief as possible. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.

IT’S BIG AND IT’S BACK. RECYCLE YOUR RIDE IS ALL ACROSS CANADA.

ONLY FOR A LIMITED TIME. ONLY AT YOUR FORD STORE.

Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program is a great incentive for consumers looking to save on their next vehicle while responsibly recycling their old one. Since the program was first offered in 2009, Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program has retired more than 50,000 old vehicles, equal to 10 times the height of Mt. Everest if stacked on top of each other. This has eliminated approximately 474,308 tonnes of smog-forming emissions—that’s enough to fill more than 260,000 garbage bags. And now, in an effort to recycle even more, the program has been expanded to include 2005-model-year-or-older vehicles. So even more people can receive between $500 and $3000* in incentives towards purchasing or leasing our smartest, safest, and fuel-efficient Ford vehicles. Like the Focus, Fusion, and F-150. Even the award-winning Fiesta and Edge.

Recycle your Ride and get up to

$

3,000 *

in additional incentives Receive up to $3,000* from Ford on qualifying vehicles of model year 2005 or older.

Our goal is to replace as many older vehicles still on the road today with more fuel-efficient, lower-emission Ford cars, CUVs, SUVs, and trucks. And you can help. If it’s time to recycle your ride, just visit any Ford Store across the country. But hurry, because Recycle Your Ride is only back for a limited time. For more details visit ford.ca today.

* Program in effect from October 1, 2011 to January 3, 2012 (the “Program Period”) To qualify, customer must turn in a 2005 model year or older vehicle that is in running condition (able to start and move and without missing parts) and has been properly registered/plated or insured for the last 3 months (the “Criteria”). Eligible customers will receive [$500]/[$1,000]/[$2,500]/[$3,000] towards the purchase or lease of a new 2011/2012 Ford [Fiesta (excluding S), Focus (excluding S)]/[Fusion (excluding SE), Taurus (excluding SE), Mustang (excluding Value Leader), Escape (excluding XLT I4 Manual), Transit Connect (excluding EV), Ranger (excluding Regular Cab 4x2 XL), Edge (excluding SE), Flex (excluding SE), Explorer (excluding base)]/[F-150 (excluding Regular Cab 4x2 XL), Expedition, E-Series]/[F250-550] – all Raptor, GT500, BOSS302, and Medium Truck models excluded (each an “Eligible Vehicle”).

‘If you don’t see anything wrong, then oppose us’ Protest from front Travelling to Vancouver every day or pitching a tent on the lawn of the art gallery just isn’t an option for Epp, so he decided to bring the protest home. People in the suburbs feel disconnected with what’s happening in Vancouver even though they share the same concerns, said Epp. “The only way this entire movement is going to have a voice is by more movements starting up.” Epp is working with

Occupy Fraser Valley, based in Chilliwack, which is holding its first general assembly on Oct. 26. Before an Occupy Maple Ridge protest begins, he wants to gather people who are interested, hold a town hall meeting and flush out where they can legally demonstrate. Although criticized for their lack of leadership and organization, the Occupy movement now has support from B.C. Federation of Labour and has even been

endorsed by Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, a former Goldman Sachs investment banker. Data shows a widening gap between the poor and the rich in Canada based on the spending patterns of recent years. In a report by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, between 1999 and 2007, annual spending by the poorest households rose $1,283, or 6.1 per cent, while spending by the richest growing gap

project rose $16,497, or 13 per cent. The poor had the smallest increase in dollar terms and the smallest percentage increase of any income group. The rich had the

largest increases. Epp tells critics of the Occupy movement to look around them. “If you honestly don’t see something wrong or believe democracy can’t be improved,

then, by all means, oppose this movement,” he added. “We don’t have to look at stats and figures. We can all see what is happening. If we want it to go in a different direction, we have to turn it around. It’s not going to happen casually.”

Local school board asks province to return to the bargaining table

B

by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The Maple RidgePitt Meadows Board of Education is asking the provincial government’s bargaining body to continue contract negotiations with the B.C. Teachers Federation, a move trustees hope will help bring about an end to job action by teachers locally. “Our board shares the responsibility to ensure education to our children is delivered in the most positive environment,� the letter to the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association states. “We encourage you to bargain to a successful conclusion that ensures no disruption to our children’s education.� The letter also requests a contract set-

tlement that is “supportive and beneficial to our public school system.� Board chair Ken Clarkson said trustees felt it was important for the school board to lend its voice to calls on the province not to legislate teachers back to work. “If teachers end up getting legislated back to work, it makes the working environment pretty toxic, and

Work-to rule slowly sucks the lifeblood out of the system, and when it’s all over, all that energy is a lot harder to get back. “It’s a passion-killer.�

Clarkson said continued job action can also cause dissension among teachers, and that can last long after they have gone back to work. “Some [teachers] may take exception to

teachers who continue to do extracurricular work,� he said. Since job action began at the start of the school year, district administrators and exempt staff have been filling in for teachers as playground supervisors during recess and lunch hour. While no report cards will be handed out if job action continues, Maple Ridge Teachers Association president George Serra said grades will still be available from teachers. “Teachers are still marking assignments, so parents can contact them directly to find out how their child is progressing,� he said. Serra added that all grades for graduation requirements will still be recorded, so students GPAs won’t be affected by the job action. “We don’t want to jeopardize anyone’s future,� he said.

Barbers of The Stag ‘like therapists’ Looking Back by Sandra Borger

Arthur Wells shines Bob Kilsby’s shoes while a customer looks on, circa 1960s. it becomes clear that Bob was well known and loved in Maple Ridge. Derrien Kilsby, Bob’s daughter-in-law, remembered how Bob “had a way of making everyone he spoke to feel important, and doubly so if you were sitting in his barber chair. He would remember your name, where you worked, your family, and every other detail you shared with him.” His daughter Patricia added that Bob and the other barbers “were like therapists – they were told things by their customers, and understood about secrecy and didn’t betray it.” One of the shop’s most intriguing characters was Arthur Wells. Arthur joined the team in 1963 and worked as the shoe-shiner for the next 28 years. However, most people remember

him for his skill with a camera rather than a cleaning cloth. A fixture at almost any event around town, Arthur visually recorded the people and places that made Maple Ridge special. No one knows what happened to these photographs, but one can imagine that they would shine a bright

light into the attic of unrecorded Maple Ridge history. If you know what happened to Arthur’s photographs, please contact Val Patenaude at the Maple Ridge Museum at 604-463-5311.

he Stag Barbershop has occupied a unique space in the municipality for the past 58 years. Under the watchful eye of moose and deer heads that lined the walls, friends could discuss everything from morality to politics, home life to sports, religion to gossip. The barbers, who acted as companions and counsellors, were just as unique as the shop. Al Clark, the original owner, worked at a logging camp in Harrison during his youth. One evening, he looked around the bunkhouse and saw a lack of grey hair; men didn’t grow old in this profession because it was so dangerous. Al explained: “You didn’t walk around the camp, you ran.” He began to think that perhaps a change in profession was due. When a fellow logger asked if there was anyone who could cut hair, Al thought, “Sure, I can do that.” Al’s friendly and easygoing demeanour were perfect for his new profession; he called everyone ‘son’ no matter the age of the patron, and was known to leave the shop now and again to enjoy a coffee with clients. “I never didn’t want to go to work,” Al recalled. “Every day was different.” Even after he retired, Al continued to be a fixture at the Stag, covering people’s holiday shifts for the next 10 years before truly retiring to Ladysmith. Born and raised in Hammond, Bob Kilsby worked alongside Al for 35 years. An accomplished boxer in his teenage years, Bob continued to be involved in sports throughout his life, playing baseball, hunting, fishing and participating in the local bowling scene. Bob ‘the Barber’ Kilsby came through with flying colors in the Maple Ridge Classic 10-pin league Friday night,” declared a March 1964 Gazette article. “He rolled a 595 triple for the top individual performance of the week.” Reading through entries on the “We Call it Haney” Facebook page,

Pressure grows on disability support by Tom Fletcher Black Press VICTORIA – A B.C. Liberal MLA has joined opposition calls for an overhaul of services to developmentally disabled people, as the provincial agency responsible struggles with a growing and aging case load. NDP MLAs called in the legislature this past week for an outside review of Community Living B.C., the agency responsible for developmentally disabled people once they are adults. B.C. Liberal MLA Randy Hawes rejected the NDP motion as “too simplistic,” but said his constituents need more help than they are getting. “There are people who have looked after their kids forever, and they’re aging out,” Hawes told reporters after an emotional debate in the legislature. “They’re 80 years old with 50- and 60-year-old children who need to have some service, and we never knew they existed.” The board of directors of Community Living B.C. fired CEO Rick Mowles the previous week after a series of controversies, including the announced closure

of a work program for developmentally disabled people at a recycling facility in Maple Ridge. CLBC has been phasing out some group homes as facilities and residents have aged, moving to home-share arrangements with contracted caregivers. During legislature debate, Hawes described one family whose developmentally disabled son grew to more than six feet tall and became violent as he reached his 20s. He was put in a home-share but that lasted only two weeks. “It was a fight, a real hard fight, to find a space for him,” Hawes said. “Definitely, he has to be in a group home.” Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux was appointed social development minister in September, replacing Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy in the ministry responsible for CLBC. Cadieux said she supports the CLBC board’s decision to make changes, and she does not agree with the NDP’s demand for an outside review of the agency’s operation. “That’s my job as minister, to dig in and see what’s going on,” Cadieux said. “I’m doing that.”

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Injuries are preventable at Halloween H

alloween is a fun time for children, but it can be an injury-prone holiday, too. Each year, B.C. Children’s Hospital, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority, and B.C. Ambulance Service (BCAS) attend to many preventable injuries involving cars and trick-ortreaters, burns from fireworks, falls, choking and cuts from pumpkin-carving. “Kids are excited at Halloween. There is lots of nervous energy and lots of activities happening, so parents and kids can be easily distracted,” says Dr. Shelina Babul, associate director and sports injury specialist, B.C. Injury and Research Prevention Unit at B.C. Children’s. “It only takes a few seconds for an injury to occur, but by thinking ahead, you can safeguard your kids and enjoy the day and evening.” Dr. Babul also recommends that parents encourage older kids to pay particular attention when crossing roads or driveways while trick-ortreating. “When kids are texting or listening to music,

they may not see or hear a motorist on the road, a car backing out of a driveway, or any other potential hazard.”

Safety Tips • Be seen – Parents and children should wear bright costumes or clothing made of flame-resistant material with reflective tape, or carry light sticks or a flashlight – it’s important that motorists can see you clearly. Make eye contact with motorists. Consider trick-or-treating in a group and staying together. Don’t forget to: stop, look left, right and left again – before crossing the street. Always cross the street at corners and crosswalks. If there isn’t a sidewalk, walk beside the road or street facing traffic. • Can you be seen clearly? – Face-painting is often a safer choice for trick-ortreaters than a mask, which can obscure vision. Stay on sidewalks and driveways and off of lawns and gardens. Go up one side of the street and

down the other rather than crossing the street between houses. Avoid alleys, parking lots, wooded areas and vacant lots. • Dress appropriately – To prevent falls, make sure your child’s costume fits well and it isn’t too long or has too much loose fabric. Dress for the weather, so your child and you are comfortable and warm. • Adult supervision – Young children should always have a responsible adult escorting them doorto-door on Halloween night. Skip past houses that don’t have their porch lights on, and avoid animals that are unfamiliar. • Pumpkin carving – Kids under six years of age should not use knives or other sharp instruments to carve pumpkins. Instead, they can be creative and draw a face on the pumpkin, or dress it up with colourful fall leaves or other safe materials. Parents should use a flashlight or a light stick to light a pumpkin rather than a candle.

Children are attracted to candles, but they don’t understand flames are hot and can cause serious harm. • Check treats thoroughly – Parents and children should make sure that all treats are checked by an adult before eating. Discard treats that aren’t in sealed packaging or look suspicious. When in doubt, throw it out. • Choking – Choking occurs most frequently among children under two years of age, but choking can happen at any age. Do not give children under five years of age popcorn, hard candy, nuts, or rubber balloons. When eating candy, parents should have children sit at a table since eating while playing, running, jumping, or talking can lead to a choking episode. Parents and caregivers should learn what to do in a choking emergency, including the choking rescue procedure (Heimlich manoeuvre), because the correct response can save a child’s

life. Information is available through HealthLink B.C. at http://www.healthlinkbc.ca/ kb/content/special/chkng. html#aa111963. • Firework safety – To be safest, plan family fun and activities that don’t include fireworks.

Children should never hold lit fireworks –a sparkler can burn as hot as 700 degrees C and will not go out even when doused in water.

Children should never hold lit fireworks –a sparkler can burn as hot as 700 degrees C and will not go out even when doused in water. Parents should check with their municipality or district as fireworks may be banned

or specific permits may be required. If you insist on using fireworks, only purchase them from a reliable source, and always read and follow the label directions. Thirty percent of injuries are caused by illegal or homemade fireworks. Keep water or appropriate fire extinguisher nearby when lighting fireworks. Parents and older children should watch the video “Just a firework, two buddies and a bomb” available through the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund website at www.burnfund.org/our_programs/burn_education/2BAAB.php. • Slow down for pedestrians – Motorists are advised to slow down and drive with extra caution this Halloween. Children are easily distracted and difficult to see in dark costumes, particularly if they run out between parked cars. • Role model – Be a good role model for your children: act safely and responsibly this Halloween.

HALLOWEEN Keeping dogs safe Halloween brings delicious treats and ghostly fun for humans, but many dogs experience fear at this time of year. Dogs become stressed due to fireworks and costumed children and may run away or become destructive thru digging, chewing or other negative behaviours. Tips to keep dogs safe:

• Increase your dog’s exercise and walk him earlier in the day before the kids are out trick-o-treating. • Pumpkin carving supplies, including felt tip pens, sharp plastic or metal knives and candles and kids’ costume pieces may be enticing to dogs and cause vomiting, diarrhea or cuts to the mouth if eaten or re-

sult in choking or intestinal blockages if your dog chews or ingests the solid objects. • Keep your dog away from the door during tricko-treating. • Make sure your dog wears an ID tag. • Leave your dog at home while accompanying tricko-treating children. • Close outside doors to reduce sound and close curtains or blinds to reduce any flashing light show. www.dogsafe.ca.

Embracing literacy H

alloween isn’t just about dressing up and eating candy – it also provides fun opportunities to learn. Embracing the literacy activities already happening in your life makes it so much easier to ensure your family is getting 15 minutes of learning experiences a day. ABC Life Literacy Canada reminds families to practice literacy skills at Halloween with some fun literacy tips, tricks and treats: • Tell ghost stories on Halloween night: make up your own stories or read a classic scary book together. • Organize Halloween candy in different ways: organize by shape, size, candy name, or even candy type, and then trade. This activity helps to reinforce basic math along with association and matching skills. • Bake a pumpkin pie: following recipes is a great way to improve both reading and math skills. Children can read the instructions out loud to help measure the ingredients when making a treat for the family.

Husband died, wife survived stabbing in 1976

Opiates stolen

Police continue to investigate the murder of Leslie Jackson 35 years after he was stabbed to death in his Maple Ridge home. On Oct. 17, 1976, Leslie and his wife Olive were returning to their house at 24931 – 121 Avenue when they encountered a man who had broken in. The thief was armed with a knife, and he stabbed both Leslie and Olive. Leslie, 56, died at the scene, and Olive was taken to hospital, where she made a full recovery. The man ed after attacking the couple and was never caught. Throughout the investigation, police have interviewed many people, but have never been able to identify the person responsible. Police think the thief got into a nearby vehicle that was driven by an accomplice. “On the 35th anniversary of this sad event, we’re still working diligently to learn the identity of the person responsible,â€? said Supt. Dave Walsh. “Mr. Jackson was a very innocent victim. We appeal to the public to give us a call if they have any information regarding this murder. Your tip may be the one that breaks the case, and brings some closure for Olive, who has had to relive this nightmare ever since that fateful night.â€?

Oxycontin and cash were stolen during a robbery at a Maple Ridge pharmacy on Monday. Just after 10 a.m., a man walked into a store on 224th Street and demanded medication and money. The pharmacist gave the man an undisclosed amount of the synthetic opioid as well as before he ed to an apartment in the 11700 block of 224th St. Police questioned two possible suspect but released them without charges. The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s with a slim build. He was wearing a black hat, a lime green hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up over his head, a hat and dark sunglasses.

Drain scuppers like the one above were stolen from two Maple Ridge schools.

Roof drains stolen

Car thief

Metal roof drains were stolen from two elementary schools in Maple Ridge in as many weeks. Over the Thanksgiving long weekend, between Friday, Oct. 7 and Tuesday, Oct. 11 thieves climbed up onto the roof of Glenwood Elementary School and stole the metal drains from the roof. This caused a water leak, which is led to thousands of dollars damage to the inside of the school. This past weekend, between Friday and Monday, thieves took the copper drain scuppers from Mount Crescent elementary,

A woman was arrested by RCMP in downtown Maple Ridge on Tuesday for allegedly driving a stolen car. Police spotted the blue Honda Accord which had been stolen from Coquitlam around 12:15 p.m. on Balabanian Circle. A short time later, a 21-year-old woman got into the car and drove it around the downtown core. Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the woman didn’t know she was been tailed by Air One, the RCMP’s helicopter. She was arrested after she parked the car on 228th Street near the Lougheed Highway.

Bulletproof list for autumn colour S

hopping is often a traumatic experience for most men, because no matter what they buy (on their own), it never seems to be quite right. I see evidence of this wherever I go – from frantic men in the grocery aisles, phoning home to make sure they Gardening purchase the ‘approved’ Mike Lascelle brands, to bewildered (and embarrassed) men in the feminine hygiene section of London Drugs, scanning the myriad of strange, hitherto unknown products (wings, no wings … ) with a blank expression on their face. They usually end up taking several different packages just to hedge their bets and save them some grief when they get home. Personally, I don’t think shopping should be this difficult, and since I sell plants, I thought I would make it easier for you to choose some seasonal shrubs and trees – such as those that your wife, mother or girlfriend have been pointing out to you (in other people’s gardens) for the past few weeks.

This is, in fact, a bulletproof list of plants guaranteed to provide you with spectacular autumn tones, regardless of how rotten the weather may be – trees and shrubs that you will point to in your future garden and proudly say, “I bought that.” So without further ado, here is your easy to find fall colour list. • Acer palmatum ‘Sango-kaku’ (syn. ‘Senkaki’) – An amazing cultivar of Japanese maple with deep coral-red new shoots and juvenile bark, that intensifies in winter. Coral Bark Maple needs near perfect drainage, so you are definitely going to have to avoid wet soils or consider creating a raised bed for it. The butter yellow autumn foliage also nicely compliments the brilliant stems. Grows 6m tall and about 4.5m wide. Hardy to Zone 6. • Euonymus alatus ‘Compactus’ – Burning Bush is aptly named as this seemingly mundane green-leaved shrub bursts into a vibrant rose-red with the onset of a few cool nights. This dramatic change often takes the neighbours by surprise and once the leaves drop, the winged stems (corky ridges) and reddish-orange berries continue the show. The dwarf form, ‘Compactus’, has better density but can still grow over 1.5m tall. Hardy to Zone 3. • Acer rubrum ‘Sun Valley’ – All of the

Red Maples, or x freemanii hybrids (Acer rubrum x Acer saccharinum) have excellent fall colour, with some common finds being ‘October Glory’, ‘Bowhall’ (columnar form) and ‘Scarlet Sentinel’. I was recently introduced to ‘Sun Valley’ by Stewart Jaques of Specimen Trees Wholesale Nurseries, who was kind enough to drive me out in the field to see it. It has probably the most brilliant orange-red or scarlet I have ever seen on an Acer rubrum, with the colouring quite consistent throughout the crown. This cross of ‘Red Sunset’ and ‘Autumn Flame’ is a male clone, so there are no messy seeds. It also tolerates our slightly moist, acidic soils and only grows 9-10.5m tall and 6-7.5m wide. Hardy to Zone 5. • Rhus typhina ‘Tiger Eyes’ (syn. ‘Bailtiger’) – This cultivar of Staghorn Sumac features finely-cut compound foliage (held on fuzzy pink stems) that emerges chartreuse, maturing to a brilliant gold in summer. Fall brings an explosion of scarlet, orange and yellow autumn tones often presented in layers, giving this plant an almost 3-D look. This drought tolerant (once established) multi-stemmed shrub is also not as invasive as its suckering counterparts, maturing at about 1.8m tall and wide. Hardy to Zone 4. • Acer palmatum ‘Osakazuki’ – One of the

The deep green summer foliage has seven highly tapered lobes and shifts to a spectacular fire engine red with the onset of cooler weather. ‘Osakazuki’ was a 1993 RHS Award of Garden Merit winner and is a little more vigorous than most Japanese maples, growing 6-7.5m tall and 4.5 to 6m wide. Hardy to Zone 6. A few other good choices to enquire about at your local garden centre would include Vitis vinifera ‘Purpurea’ (Purpleleaf Grape), Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple), Hamamelis ‘Jelena’ (Witch Hazel), Liquidambar styraciflua (Sweetgum) and Viburnum dentatum ‘Blue Muffin’, which actually has red autumn foliage.

Too much of a good thing, not so good T

he internet is, as it turns out, both a blessing and a curse to the children of elderly parents. While it provides a lot of information that medical personnel might not have the time to share, or at least make comprehensible, it also presents more information than the average non-medical person can take in without becoming nervous, or worse, an amateur diagnostician. When a label was ďŹ rst

attached to my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition (chronic myelogenous leukemia), my parents asked my sister and I to look it up on the internet. Although their doctor had given them a brief overview of the symptoms and treatment, it had been offered to them immediately after she told them what he had, and thus was not really heard through the emotions of the moment. Once the emotions had settled, they wanted more of an idea of what lay ahead. As we individually went into the topic, we found that most of the articles were signiďŹ cantly more complicated than my parents would be able to comprehend and, like all forms of leukemia, tended to have some reference to potential survival rates. At that point in time, it was not something they needed to hear. So rather than run an article from the internet, I did some research and cobbled together a short outline of the main facts I felt they needed to understand and sent it to them. As the condition has progressed, I have found

Be thankful for our blessings H

ow is your fall season panning out? Is it currently full of school, soccer, dance, hockey, meetings, work, homework, theatre, family, friends, shopping, festivities? Tired just talking about it? September and October always seem to be busy. We skip and dance through the summer (what there was of it) and then the structure of September happens and off we go. Somewhere in there, between Christmas shopping at Costco and Halloween, we have Thanksgiving, which just passed. We take the day to recognize things that we are grateful for and what we appreciate, and then off we go again. Do you remember what you said you were thankful for, or has it already disappeared in the midst of the chaos? On Thursday, Jan. 31, 1957, the Canadian Parliament declared: “A day of general Thanksgiving to the Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.” Thanking God for being blessed is rich in our heritage. Nowadays, most of us probably don’t think of bringing in a harvest, unless we consider shopping at Langley Market as harvesting.

But we can be thankful for the blessings we do have. Not just for material things, even though in Canada we are all rich compared Acts of Faith to other Wendy Townsend parts of the world, but be grateful for friends, family, health, even each breath we take. But some don’t give credit to God, maybe because of their own beliefs and doubts, or maybe because we all work so hard to make ends meet. We take the credit for our blessings. When Jesus spoke on the mountain, he talked about money and possessions. He said: “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life – whether you have enough food or drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food and your body more than clothing. Look at the birds, they don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns for your heavenly Father feeds them, And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are.” You are far more valuable to Him, whether you believe it or not. He believes it and He be-

lieves in you and wants to care for you. So if each day we can look for something to be grateful for and try to see how God has a hand in it, everyday would be a thanksgiving day. Jesus went on to say in that same passage: “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring it’s own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

Be a deer. Volunteer!

So if each day we can look for something to be grateful for and try to see how God has a hand in it, everyday would be a thanksgiving day.

Drivers, navigators, phone operators and dispatchers needed. Antlers optional.

So, take the time to reflect, even if just for a moment during the day as you pick the kids up from school, or on your drive home from work, or maybe when you plunk down at the end of the day. Lay down your worries for the days to come and look around for your blessing of the day. Trust me, it will bring a smile to your face.

Panozzo named Big Ten player of the week by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Maple Ridge secondary grad Steph Panozzo is making the most of her increased playing time in net as she received her first Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Week women’s soccer award on Monday. The University of Illinois junior goalkeeper stopped seven shots combined against the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers in NCAA Division I action last weekend to register the third and fourth straight 1-0 victories for the UI Illini. Panozzo is in her first season as Illinois’ starter Panozzo in goal, and has stepped up her play in net since Illinois began conference action, helping to account for the Orange and Blue’s second place standing in the Big Ten Conference entering the final two weeks of the season. Panozzo currently has the most in-conference shutouts among Big Ten goalies, with four, and has the second-lowest goals-against average during conference-only matches, with 0.71 tallies allowed per game. Panozzo was also selected the SoccerSavings.com/Chicagoland Soccer News Women’s College Player of the Week this week. In her first two seasons with the Illini, Panozzo saw limited game action, appearing in just six games. Panozzo has had a long history with the Canadian national development program, representing Canada at the 2008 CONCACAF U-20 Women’s Championship in Puebla, Mexico and the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Chile. She also played three seasons with the Vancouver Whitecaps W-League squad and led the North Shore Storm to provincial championship three times. Panozzo is majoring in business while at UI and was a member of the honour roll for five years while at at Maple Ridge Secondary. sports@mapleridgenews.com

Gonda wins gold at Pan-Ams Maple Ridge martial artist takes top spot in Guadalajara staff reporter Maple Ridge’s Ivett Gonda gave Team Canada a literal kick-start on Saturday’s opening day at the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Gonda grabbed the country its first gold medal at the Games after handling Lizbeth

Julissa Diez Canseco of Peru 13-6 in the women’s under-49 kg division of taekwondo, including out-pointing her 8-1 in a final round that featured a decisive roundhouse kick to the head. “I’ve always wanted to perform well and today it all just came together, so I’m quite happy that I was able to do that,” said Gonda. “But this is just one stepping stone towards London. I have to stay focused and go back to training and do what I did before.”

Gonda has two more qualifying events to compete in before she finds out if she will join Team Canada for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 25-year-old Gonda was born in Hungary and moved to Canada at age Gonda four. She has won several international competitions, including claiming bronze at the 2007 Pan Ams in Brazil, and is a

two-time Olympian who placed fifth in Athens in 2004. In the semifinals, Gonda posted an 8-3 victory over Deiranne Estephany Morales of the U.S. after having whipped Carolena Carstens of Panama 11-4 in the quarterfinals. Gonda received a bye in the first round of the competition after her opponent could not make weight.

SRT knocks off archrivals Carney

MEN’S NIGHT

Meers scores 4 goals in win over soccer heavyweights by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Graeme Meers had a four-goal performance Tuesday afternoon, leading the Samuel Robertson Titans senior boys’ soccer team to a 4-1 win over the topranked Archbishop Carney Stars on the road. The two teams met in the first week of the season last month, with Carney coming away the victor in a 3-0 decision on the Titan’s pitch. Meers was not in the line-up for that game. However, his presence was hard to ignore on Tuesday. Titans head coach John Sneddon said it’s the kind of performance

he’s come to expect from the talented young forward. “He’s just an incredible scorer,” he said. “Ever since he was eight years old, he’s had this gift for scoring.” Meers is the son of former Vancouver 86er Arnie Meers, and will be headed to Scotland this summer for trials with development programs there, including Glasgow Celtics, Sneddon said. “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, that’s for sure,” he said. Meers scored two goals on Carney in the opening 15 minutes of the match before Carney scored off a free kick to draw within one at the half. The second half was all Titans, as Meers scored another pair of goals to put the game out of reach. However, it wasn’t all positive news on

the pitch for Titans on Tuesday as Meers was forced to leave the game after injuring his ankle with 15 minutes to play. With the Fraser Valley finals looming, Sneddon is hoping his star striker will be able to return in time for the playoffs. As big of an impact as Meers had on the game, Sneddon said it he wouldn’t have been effective were it not for the hard work of the team’s defence and midfielders. “He wouldn’t have got the ball if it wasn’t for the hard work of our defenders,” said Sneddon. “We out-tackled them and out-hustled them. It was a real team effort.”

The game plan from the get-go was to smother Carney’s potent offence. “We tried to bottle them up,” Sneddon said. “They were still dangerous at midfield, but they didn’t have a lot of chances.” There was certainly no love no love lost between these two teams on the pitch as Carney has earned a reputation as the bully of the AA North Zone after running up scores into double digits this season against some of the weaker teams. While their strategy hasn’t earned them many friends in the division, it has all but guaranteed them first place in the standings. While the Titans and Stars will likely finish the regular season with identical 7-1 records, barring any significant upsets, Carney gets the ties breaker on goal differential. “They are a very talented team, and they don’t give any mercy,” said Sneddon. Sneddon has instead opted to spread playing time around to his bench players once his team has secured big leads over their opposition. It may have cost the Titans top spot in league play, but it’s a strategy he hopes will pay off in the playoffs, when his secondary players may be called upon in the event of injury. “Once you’re up four, five goals, the games over,” said Sneddon. “For us, we felt it was more important to get all of our players in the game.” The SRT Titans were scheduled to play the Pitt Meadows Marauders (2-2-1) Thursday night and close out the regular season on the road against Garibaldi secondary (0-6) on Tuesday, Oct. 25. The SRT Titans are Curtis Ogilvie, Konner McLeod, Simon Boserup, Jesse Erhardson, Martin Macik, Conner Henry, Brett Almond, Brendan Jones, Cole Lamont, Jacob Mattson, Matt Funk, Erik Lutsch, Alberto Garcia, Kyle Lloyd, Trevor White, Cole Almond, Graeme Meers, Elcio Do Amaral, Paolo Dait, Paul Bock, Emerson Kot, and Corey Pederson.

In addition, even if a person didn’t lose very much weight, or even stayed the same weight, there are enormous health benefits to eating well and exercising. In fact, there have been numerous studies done over the past five years that have shown that just being more active, moderately exercising on a regular basis drastically reduces health risks for heart disease and cancer. For instance, a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that being inactive is a bigger risk factor for heart disease than obesity. Inactivity and obesity are both

know of a woman who has recently taken very direct and serious action to lose weight. Her experience to date is one that turns out to be very common. She has been organized and sensible, but is only about six weeks into this journey and is already running into some difficulty. She has changed her diet (using an excellent dietary plan) and has begun to exercise regularly for the first time in about 20 years. And even though she is a great deal over her ideal weight, she has lost about 10 pounds since she started her program. Despite this encouraging start, however, she feels discouraged and has talked about giving up because it feels like the rate of weight loss is too slow. Maybe she has just seen too many quick weight loss TV programs or read too many grocery store tabloid covers. This is such a common story with so many people, and all the more unfortunate because this person has taken all the correct steps, and what’s more, she is making progress. First of all, it is generally accepted that a reasonable, safe, healthy rate of weight loss is no more than two pounds per week. Well, she’s right on target. She has lost more than a pound per week to date. It sounds kind of slow, but it isn’t. Even one pound a week translates to 52 pounds a year. People always say how time flies, how a year passes by so quickly, so give it a little time. And like any worthwhile endeavour, it takes time, patience, and work. It’s like doing a school project or a big renovation job – you just start chipping away. Only with fitness, it’s more like a snowball rolling down a hill – it starts off slowly, but once it gains some momentum, things become easier. As your muscles become stronger, you are able to exercise longer or with higher intensity, which burns more calories, which in turn reduces your weight, which in turn allows you to exercise more.
