Weekend a busy one for Ladner

Night market, car & quilt show, barn raising scheduled


Looking for something to do in Ladner this weekend? The Heart of Ladner Night Market, a fun event for the whole family, returns for its third year. Set for Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m., the street market in the heart of Ladner Village is back due to the strong outpouring of community support, according to organizer Michael Rudd. Proceeds will once again support the work of the Delta Hospice Society. Vendors at this year’s Ladner Night Market will include Sunflower Cards, Bella Photography, Hair Candy Accessories, Urban Rack, Blink Kinds, Open Space Yoga, Maison Cote Spices, Emma Lea Farms and more. Billie’s Barbershop will be doing brush cuts for $5, with money raised going to Delta Hospice. There will also be Art in the Village featuring local artists presented by the Upstart Crow. In addition to the over 25 vendors participating in the evening, there will also be face painting, a bouncy castle, Buggy Babies and Yoga, and a clown. On Sunday, the ever-popular Quilt Walk and Classic Car Show returns for its ninth installment. Hosted by the Ladner Business Association and The Quilted Bear, the event typically attracts in the area of 10,000 people to see the hundreds of classic cars and colourful quilts.


The Western Dachshund Club held its 20th annual Picnic and Wiener Walk at Winskill Park in Tsawwassen last Sunday. The event featured games and other activities for wiener dogs and their owners. For more photos see page 20 and


This year’s Quilt Walk and Classic Car Show takes place Sunday in Ladner Village. Organizers are expecting about 400 classic cars for this year’s show. The festivities also include entertainment, food and refreshments, quilting demonstrations, as well as vendors selling car-related merchandise, including diecast collectable cars, shirts and aprons. The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. To keep that vintage theme going this weekend, Delta is hosting an oldfashioned barn raising. On Sunday afternoon, Harris Barn will be reassembled at its new home at Hawthorne Grove Park, also known as the Kirkland House site, on Ladner’s Arthur Drive. Earlier this year, civic politicians voted to enter into an agreement with the

property owner to acquire and relocate the Harris Barn, which was formerly located in the 5500-block of 64th Street. The barn is being refurbished and will be used as a community gathering space and stand as a tribute to the area’s agricultural heritage. A Vancouver Island company has been working to restore the barn and re-establish the framework to ensure it meets current standards. The re-assembly process will begin Sunday with the barn raising. More than 100 volunteers will be needed to help raise the barn. Volunteer registration runs from 1 to 2 p.m. The festivities, which will include food, entertainment and children’s activities, will run from 2 to 6 p.m.

Century opens Southlands display home

Developer opens display while the rezoning application for the property is under consideration BY


The public will get a chance to see first-hand a form of housing the Century Group is proposing to build at the Southlands property. Located at the Tsawwassen Town Centre shopping mall, a recently completed cottage-style house, designed by Cotter Architects, will be open for tours starting this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Smallworks Studios, a Vancouver-based company specializing in smaller homes, built the structure. The company has been active in recent years with the construction of laneway homes in Vancouver. One of several house designs proposed for the Southlands, the cottage structure on display at the mall is approximately 1,200 square-feet. It would be the largest house available in terms of square footage at the development. The house on display has a master bedroom and bathroom on the main floor, while a second bathroom is on the second level. Also on the second floor is loft space that can be used for a second bedroom, office or studio. The downstairs has a large common area with a high vaulted ceiling. The housing type is mainly geared toward young families, seniors looking to downsize and homeowners whose children have grown up and moved away, explained David Laulainen, spokesperson for the Century Group. He noted there’s been a lot of interest from locals, especially young adults, in having this form of housing that’s not available in Delta. “We’re getting a lot of interest from younger people, between 25-to-35years-old, who grew up in Tsawwassen and want to stay here but they literally have no place to go. They

can’t afford any of these Beach Grove or Boundary Bay houses, and they don’t necessarily want to live in an apartment,” he said. Having one outdoor parking stall, the house would occupy a small lot, but would surround an outdoor common courtyard area with other homes. A variety of functions are possible for the common areas including gardens featuring plants native to the community. “The lot sizes will be smaller but the living spaces will be bigger,” Laulainen said Earlier this year, Century Group submitted a rezoning application for the first phase of a much larger development planned for the 500-plus acre Southlands property. The first phase would see 14 hectares (35 acres) developed with 450 residential units in various forms and densities, including cottage-

style and other smaller single-family houses. At 345, condos would make up the majority of the first phase. The next phase of development would see mostly single-family houses built. Once fully developed, the Southlands would have 950 new homes. The development also involves the transfer of 80 percent of the property to Delta, working out to approximately 173.7 hectares (429 acres). Up to two-thirds of that donated land would be used for farming, while housing would be built on the remaining 20 per cent of the Southlands. According to the Century Group, the centerpiece for the development concept is a village centre linked with walking and cycling paths that connect to active small-scale farms, a vibrant village centre and the larger community. The company notes it’s the first project of

The Century Group held a couple of public information meetings several weeks ago, Delta was planning to

host an information meeting on the application on Sept. 6. However, Mayor Lois Jackson said council this week agreed not to have the meeting on that date because they are still waiting for the applicant to

provide more information and answer a series of questions. A new date hasn’t been set for the meeting. For more information, check the Southlands section of the municipality’s website at

Two dead after Boundary Bay-bound plane crashes in Okanagan Two people are dead and two others are in hospital with serious injuries after a small plane bound for Boundary Bay Airport crashed in the Okanagan earlier this week. The twin-engined Piper PA-30 went down near Peachland Monday afternoon. Bill Yearwood, a spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board, said investigators determined late Tuesday evening

that the plane had plenty of fuel when it crashed. Investigators removed the wreckage from the area Wednesday to get a better look at the underside of the plane. He added that investigators also know that the plane was traveling away from a clearing — there has been some speculation that the pilot was attempting to land the plane when it crashed. “The aircraft was travelling away from

the clearing when it struck the tree,” Yearwood said. Dallas Smith, 30, of Vancouver was found dead at the scene. His girlfriend, Lauren Sewell, 24, initially survived the crash but later succumbed to her injuries. As of early Thursday afternoon, the two remaining survivors remained in critical condition in hospitals in Kamloops and Vancouver.

Investigators have not yet been able to interview the survivors because they are not doing well, Yearwood said. Yearwood said the safety board investigation will try to determine why the pilot flew further north than the intended route, which was from Penticton directly west to Princeton and then on to Boundary Bay Airport in East Ladner. - with files from the Vancouver Sun

Camp helps family heal after losing several loved ones Fall retreat offers grief counseling and connects families with others going through similar experiences



Camp Kerry’s Heather Mohan (left) with Ladner’s Naadia Clayton and her kids Ali and Josh along with their dog Nicky. Josh says Camp Kerry is “healing in a way” while Ali says “it’s great to meet people who you can stay in contact with and talk about whatever’s going on.” was to also create some intensive retreats for a smaller group of families, Mohan explains. The Claytons were able to go on one of those last month, spending eight days in Maui. “It was a wonderful experience. I can’t express to you what a great time we had. It was phenomenal,”

said Clayton. Two other families with similaraged kids also attended, she said, noting activities included surfing, snorkeling, hiking, outrigger canoeing and counseling. Families don’t pay to take part in Camp Kerry, which has all of its programs supported by dona-

tions. “We’ve met so many wonderful people. They’re part of this big community of, I guess you would say, a community of hope and healing,” Mohan said. “That’s kind of how l look at it.” For more on Camp Kerry visit

A Ladner mom is looking to get the word out about Camp Kerry. Naadia Clayton and her kids, Ali and Josh, have lost a string of loved ones in what has understatedly been a tough few years. Clayton’s husband Dan died suddenly in 2008, her mom died of cancer in 2009, her sister-in-law died in 2011 and her brother Phil died earlier this year. The Camp Kerry Society, a charity with an office based in Burnaby, which specializes in bereavement support and care for young families, has been a big help, said Clayton. This will be the fifth year the Claytons have gone on a Camp Kerry retreat. “It’s been really, really great for us,” she said, adding the family has met lots of great people through the program, which she found out about through the Delta Hospice Society. It will be held at Zajac Ranch in Mission over four days in September. Grief counseling is available, families can connect with others going through a similar experience and take part in various camp activities. Besides the fall retreat, the

Camp Kerry Society offers year-round family grief support groups, special events for families connected through the Camp Kerry community and education workshops. Camp Kerry founder and executive director Dr. Heather Mohan got the initiative started after a young family she was working with as a bereavement co-ordinator at Lions Gate Hospital left money for Mohan’s bereavement program. “I felt it would be something really special,” she said. Mohan, who now works at the Delta Hospice Society, said she felt it could give people a lot of benefit in a short period of time outside a traditional therapy setting and that during her time as camp counselor as a teenager she always saw the power of what it was like for people to get away and have a bonding experience. She said it’s especially important for young families to be able to connect to other young families that are grieving, but also raising kids on their own all of a sudden. “Only those people understand each other’s experience,” she said, adding that grief is a long-term process. While the number of families attending the regular camp has grown (from 11 in 2007 to likely 25 this year), part of the vision

Traffic was heavily backed up last month after a truck crash on Highway 17. Council this week asked staff to look into ways to get traffic moving quicker following such incidents.



Council wants to know how things can be improved as far as getting traffic moving quicker following collisions involving trucks in South Delta. On July 23, it took four hours for police and road crews to clear the southbound lane of Highway 17 after a trailer being towed by a dump truck suffered a blown tire and overturned. The incident occurred near municipal hall at about 11 a.m., south of the intersection with Highway 10. The southbound lanes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reopen until about 3 p.m. Two other vehicles were involved in the crash but nobody was seriously hurt. Rocks and soil from the truck spilled across the highway and a concrete barrier was pushed aside. Delta police responded but then stood down when the RCMP, which has jurisdiction of Highway 17, arrived. Local police and

engineering department personnel were on hand to offer assistance if needed, however, the resulting traffic chaos due to another truck collision left commuters once again frustrated. Complaints flooded municipal hall including concerns from a letter writer asking what is the emergency plan if something happens on the highway. Chief administrative officer George Harvie noted engineering staff couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get anywhere near the scene with messaging boards to notify motorists. Civic politicians Monday agreed to have operational staff investigate the protocol and procedures and have a report written on the issue. The issue was also referred to the police board. This spring, a three-day truck inspection blitz in Delta saw more than 16,000 trucks assessed. Of that, 692 were given further inspection and 268 (39 per cent) of those were deemed to be out of service.

handle any additional influx from the TFN. The First Nation has been looking for a solution to solve its sewage issues. A small sewage-treatment plant currently services the TFN, however, that system does not have the capacity to meet the increase in demand expected to result from the community’s development plans. The TFN is planning for massive growth over the next few years, including two major shopping centres, thousands of homes as well as developing land for industrial purposes. A hotel complex is also a possibility. Earlier this year, the provincial government cleared the way for the TFN to join the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District (GVS&DD). Delta had agreed to sign a temporary five-year agreement with the TFN to allow access to Delta’s sewer pipes, but only on a limited basis. That agreement was turned down by the GVS&DD. In April, TFN Chief Kim Baird wrote to Greg Moore, chair of the GVS&DD, to inquire about a Delta owned sewer main that runs from south of the Annacis Island treatment plant to a boundary with TFN lands.

The staff report included memo from Omni Engineering Inc., the firm hired to assess the sewer capacity for the system serving Tsawwassen, Ladner and Tilbury. The report concluded that any additional flows outside of what is outlined in the Official Community Plan would require system modifications to increase forcemain and pumping capacity. Civic politicians approved a motion to have the report sent to Metro Vancouver and the TFN, as well as various provincial and federal ministers and Delta’s MPs and MLAs. “It’s now in the hands of Metro Vancouver, where it should be,” said Mayor Lois Jackson.

She noted that the pipeline recently received an extension alongside Highway 17 and had significant upgrades and investment by Delta, while the TFN continues to explore long-term infrastructure servicing. “TFN understands that Delta has prepared a capacity assessment of this line and is prepared to engage in further discussions in respect of providing sewer servicing to the TFN,” she wrote. “TFN is proposing that, to enable the provision of sewer servicing to TFN, GVS&DD take ownership of that infrastructure from the Corporation of Delta. TFN is prepared to compensate Delta for this transfer on behalf of GVS&DD... It is our understanding that GVS&DD staff have indicated that the transfer of ownership of the pipe would be an acceptable long-term servicing solution.” The plan, however, does not work for Delta. “The analysis clearly indicates that there is no reserve capacity available for Tsawwassen First Nation’s long-term sewage needs,” chief administrative officer George Harvie told council at the meeting in July.

The current animal shelter on 80th Street was built in 1972.

New animal shelter is on time & on budget so far Project expected to be completed by end of the year BY


Construction of Delta’s new animal shelter is under way and so far the project is on time and on budget. The $4 million undertaking, which was approved earlier this year and is being built at the southwest corner of Tilbury and Hopcott roads, is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year and operational by early 2013. The underground plumbing and electrical work, as well as detailed foundation excavation and pre-fabrica-

tion of foundation forms, were completed in June. The first foundation pour was completed in early July and structural steel installation began later in the month. The current shelter on 80th Street was built in 1972 and was originally designed to only accommodate dogs. Cats now make up more than 50 per cent of the shelter’s population and are housed in three trailers on the lot. The current shelter has been deemed outdated, too small and poorly located.

It is also next to the South Fraser Perimeter Road, not an ideal location for animals. The new 12,000-squarefoot facility is located near walking trails and will also include covered dog runs. The building is to meet a minimum LEED silver standard and includes solar hot water heating and high efficiency heat pumps. Additional care and expense will be taken to ensure air circulation from cat areas is separated from the rest of the facility to mitigate the threat of airborne illnesses.

The Club recently welcomed Claire and Marco Goco to the Club. We asked Marco about their decision to make Beach Grove their home for golf and social fun! Why Golf? I was introduced to golf at the age of 12 and have loved the game ever since. Golf has been an integrated part of my career and family life. I play golf with my clients, friends and family throughout the year. After a busy week, the golf course is a great place to unwind. On the golf course, you create lifelong friendships and great memories as you navigate a challenging golf course. After a round of golf, a nice cold drink and great conversation is the icing on top of a great experience with other golfers. Golf is more than a sport! The values of integrity and courtesy are part of the game and I carry this to my life. It is also a great avenue to lifelong friendships. Golf will be part of my family for many generations. Why Now? Claire and I visited several private clubs and decided that Beach Grove Golf Club was the best overall choice for us. There is exceptional value for a membership today and the people are very welcoming. Why Beach Grove? One of the most important aspects of a membership is the people. What differentiates Beach Grove Club compared to other private clubs are its members and staff. The members and staff are genuinely friendly, courteous, and professional. The club facilities are exceptional and the condition of the golf course is fantastic. Beach Grove Golf Club is more than just a golf membership. It is a place to spend time with your family, make new friends, and enjoy dining on one of the best patios in South Delta.

Tsaw. Lions big supporters of KinVillage Local service club has also helped SDSS, sports groups and lends a hand for special community events BY


Optimist contributor

Providing service to the community is the overall goal of the Tsawwassen Lions Club and this is illustrated by the club’s support for KinVillage. “It is incredible what they have done for us,” said John Lusted, director of recreation for KinVillage. Included in the projects and donations to KinVillage are two high definition TVs for the care home, a patio

“We are always looking for ways in which we can help the community and we are happy to take on big projects.”

set so residents of the care home can enjoy a visit with friends and family outside and a large canopy to shade residents from the weather, sun or rain, when they are enjoying being outdoors. “The canopy was a large project,” said Lusted, adding the canopy had to be lifted over the top of the building for installation. Brad Gaze, treasurer of the Tsawwassen Lions, said there are about 38 members of the club that pitch in to do whatever needs to be done to ensure community

projects are successful. He related the story of planting flowers at the front of KinVillage: “I recruited some workers, telling them it was just a bit of digging and planting. But I hadn’t realized the ground had not been worked and it was like cement. Not an easy job for us old guys.” However, Gaze emphasized they had a lot of fun with the job and that the most important thing about community service is enjoying what you do. Volunteering is a “social thing,” he said, and it is a good way to meet people. In addition to helping KinVillage, the club also takes on many other projects such as providing funds and practical support to South Delta Secondary in building an apiary, working with sports groups and special community events. “We do a lots of food events, such as hot dogs on Canada Day, and we rely on the donations at these events to support our projects,” said Gaze. “The people of Tsawwassen are extremely generous and the club is thankful for their contributions.” Another successful ongoing fundraiser is the Sunday car lot sale. “We are always looking for ways in which we can help the community and we are happy to take on big projects,” said Gaze.

MURPHY’S LAW I’m a believer in the slower-traffickeep-right rule of the road, but there are instances around here where, let’s just say, my adherence to it can waver. We ran a letter a few weeks back that complained about slow drivers using the left lane on southbound Highway 17 because they’re eventually going to make the turn into Tsawwassen. I certainly agree that slower moving vehicles shouldn’t get in the left lane as soon as they’re south of Ladner Trunk, but I’m willing to cut them — and me — a bit of slack given the circumstances. There have been many occasions when I’ve been in the left lane on Highway 17 southbound, going at a pretty good clip, when I’ve had someone come up behind me who’s obviously moving a heck of a lot faster. If I’m still north of the rail overpass, it’s a no-brainer to pull out of the way and then get back into the left lane in time to make the turn. When I’m south of the rail overpass, that courteous gesture is not quite so automatic. I’m faced with a more difficult decision, because if I move into the right lane, it might be difficult, depending on traffic flow and distance from the 56th Street intersection, to get back in the left lane. A similar situation exists on that stretch of Highway 17 northbound between Ladner Trunk and the Highway 99 interchange. If I’m headed to River Road, I don’t want to be in the right lane, but if I get in the left lane I could well have a speed demon riding my bumper. I get the whole slower-traffic-keepright concept, and I think out on the open road where a faster moving vehicle is going to demonstrably benefit from others moving to the side, it should always be followed. There’s no doubt it’s frustrating to be caught behind a slowpoke when there is a stretch of empty asphalt ahead of him. But in certain cases around here, where a traffic light or our ever-present congestion can bring faster drivers to a halt in what can literally be a matter of seconds, and where the courteous driver can end up headed in the wrong direction, moving to the right shouldn’t be an absolute. Frankly, I’m not going to get stuck in the right lane and end up going around the loop to the tunnel, when I don’t want to go there, just so someone can get to his destination six seconds faster. It’s incumbent on drivers to do the courteous thing and move out of the way of those going faster, but there are certain situations where it would be nice if such courtesies were reciprocated.

Memories of summer time fun brought on by season’s end MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT With a couple of weeks until the kids go back to school, I plague myself with unanswered questions. Did we do enough? Should we have rented that cabin? Should we have taken that road trip? I find that summer is particularly fleeting and I always feel as though I have missed something. This is unneeded anxiety that makes me long for the carefree aspects of summer time youth. With 50 cents in your pocket and a good bike, a summer’s day could turn in to an eternity of its own. A week in to the holidays some of my friends would express a desire for school to start again. A hardy gaunch pull and purple herbie would set them straight for the rest of the summer. There was never boredom in those exploratory nine to 14 years. Days spent savouring popsicles in between epic Frisbee and tennis sessions easily tamed a summer’s day.

A little “pool hopping” always cooled the gang down by sunset. Does anyone remember ‘peashooters’? What a great and missed summer activity this was! Pick up a bag of peas and a peashooter (big straw) from your corner store for 35 cents and you were in business. We would fashion ourselves as Pygmy warriors in the deepest and darkest Amazon forests of our own neighbourhood. Silently stalking our prey (friends) and unloading the direct ultra accurate kill shot to the temple or releasing the machine gun barrage mouthful at any cranium within a 10-foot range. I miss being able to shoot peas out of my mouth rather than eating them. Do you think if we had corner stores they would bring this inventory back? Doubtful. Mothers Against Peashooters, MAPS, would be formed in a second, especially here in Tsawwassen. As we got older, the neighbourhood gang ventured farther a field. Usually we would spend time at Galiano or Hornby islands when careful calendar analysis would show that there were no parents within hundreds of miles. These were the best of times and interests beyond peashooters began. These interests wore two pieces and the sandy and semi savvy

choreographed beach volleyball matches would occasionally yield first memories of youthful progression however awkward. Unfortunately, these times were also fraught with expectations. Expectations from our parents for the most part. “Michael ... you are 16-years-old and need to find work!” I guess a paper route wasn’t really work per se, and I heard what my mom was saying. In that fateful summer of 1976 a family friend had heard that they were imminently hiring for the PNE. At Hornby, I received the bad news that me and three of my best beach buddies had been hired after submitting hastily crafted applications. I had to leave early to go to work. I felt like I had been drafted! I still laugh with my friends about this now. I was a train conductor and even got to yell ‘ALL ABOARD’. I drove by John who was slaving at Bob’s Lunch flipping burgers. My buddy Chris was up to his armpits in tacos at some stand and my future wife was slinging Tom Thumb mini-doughnuts. I drove by them several times a day and recalled that this was the best summer ever. Whatever you did or didn’t do in your summer, just appreciate that you were there regardless.

ply do they want to destroy to achieve this agenda? The majority of South Deltans have chosen this location because of its previous appeal, and not because they wanted their house values to drop, their quality of life diminished and their voices unheard. It’s not Delta’s fault that Vancouver has taxed most industry right out of town, but now they want Delta to bear the consequences.

Why does Vancouver need to send all of its container business to Delta? Could it be they see more value in using their current container storage land for other purposes? If so, we should take a lesson from that, and not just embrace, without question, the foolish route we’re on. The resulting loss of farmland, and the overcrowding and gridlock in this area, are apparently not

considered in the agenda of our governments, which only see the dollar signs at the end of every major decision. I’m disappointed your paper has chosen to represent such an unbalanced viewpoint that only considers the financial bottom line. I though you were our community newspaper, and not just another rag for the corporations. Maurice Bourassa

Running our Race Crowds are beginning to gather, excitement ringing in their cheers and laughter — the Olympians are coming home! I’d love to join the throng of people to let these young athletes know that I am proud of their achievements and their living out of the Olympic Spirit. That is, to play games with an attitude of mutual understanding in a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play. I was particularly moved by the athletes choosing of one of their own, Christine Sinclair, as the bearer of the Canadian flag as our contingent fairly danced into the stadium for the closing of the games. It was abundantly clear that each of the young athletes from around the world knew their purpose — to play well, their

aim — to play fair, and also to stand and declare their pride in their family and country of origin. Tattoos, pins and flags were in abundance — and I’m certain that new friends were made with each passing day, so that upon entering the stadium for the final “show,” the athletes were not just following the swirling Canadian flag, they were following in the footsteps of Olympians from centuries past. How I wish that I could say the same for spirit and aims of every Christian throughout time. But sometimes we lose sight of the “cross” that is our banner, we even lose sight of the one who leads us in a spirit of truth and justice — Jesus the Christ.

Jump Up and Kissme racing in Longacres Mile Local businessmen Wayne Oliver and Gord Christoff, along with partners Jim Galbraith and the Basran brothers, are off to Emerald Downs in Auburn, Washington this Sunday to watch their star horse Jump Up and Kissme race in the 77th running of the $200,000 Longacres Mile. This is the most prestigious thoroughbred horse race in the Northwest. With big money on the line it always lures talented horses from dif-

ferent jurisdictions and many have come from as far away as Southern California. Jump Up and Kissme was a closing third in his last race on B.C. Cup day and the connections are hopeful that the early pace is extremely hot which would give their late running star a fighting chance. Either way it is an honour and a rare privilege to be in a race of this caliber so if you are rac-

ing nut or simply a casual fan, try to get out to Hastings or any off-track location and watch the Longacres Mile from Emerald Downs this Sunday (Aug. 19) and cheer on the local hope. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Updated app available for Metro parks People equipped with an iPhone or iPad can now more easily navigate their way around parks in Metro Vancouver with the newest release of iParks Navigator. One of the most exciting changes is the re-structuring of iParks Navigator to include municipal park data. Metro Vancouver collaborated with the City of Richmond in the development of this latest version which includes regional parks, regional greenways, the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, and parks managed by the City of Richmond. The latest release of Metro Vancouver’s smart phone application, iParks Navigator, is now available for download from iTunes. Enhancements with this latest release include faster synchronization and more efficient handling of data. One of its more popular features is a mapping function drawing features such as trails and facilities from a database, which enables users to accurately locate their position or navigate along a trail in real time. It uses location services of the iPhone and map data to provide directions to a park — whether you walk, cycle, drive or take transit. Other features include video profiles of parks, photo galleries and a search function for finding a park according to type of facility or by activity. There is also a calendar of events, park advisories and safety information. iParks Navigator is available only for iPhone and iPad. As part of a special time-limited promotion, it can be downloaded free of charge directly from the iTunes App Store. Visit iTunes and search for “Metro Vancouver.” For more details visit and search for “iParks Navigator.”

Port Metro Vancouver:

bringing goods to you in a good way.

We are working hard to be a good neighbour. As Canada’s largest port, we handle $75 billion worth of cargo, from consumer goods to coal, grain and forest products. But our business is not just to deliver goods, its to do it in a good way. Port Metro Vancouver is recognized globally as a beautiful and clean port. We are a neighbour to 16 Lower Mainland communities, one treaty First Nation and several First Nations. We work hard so future generations will enjoy the benefits of trade, improved quality of life, and a healthy and vibrant ecosystem.

Here are a few of the many environmental initiatives we are proud of:

Reducing port-related emissions Cruise ships can now shut off their engines while docked at Canada Place and plug in to shore power. Learn more about this and other emissions reduction efforts at environment

Limiting the impact of truck traffic We’ve introduced strict environmental requirements for container trucks arriving at the Port. These include mandatory idling limits and the phasing out of older trucks.

Preserving habitat We’ve preserved osprey nests, built man-made reefs for marine species and homes for other “permanent residents” around the communities surrounding the Port. For example, in Delta, Port Metro Vancouver and Tsawwassen First Nation have collaborated on a barn owl conservation initiative, providing nest boxes to our night-flying neighbours.

WE’RE COMMUNITY MINDED We identify areas of importance and concern for our neighbours, and work to build strong relationships to share the benefits of trade. Here are some examples of how we’re working hard to be a good neighbour: Involving stakeholders – we believe those affected by a decision have a right to be involved in the decision-making process, that’s why we provide opportunities for input into port development. Giving back – one per cent of our net income supports education, environmental programs and events to enrich our community. Supporting youth – we help high school students, from schools like Delta Secondary,


build on key educational and professional skills through our Leadership Program. Creating connections – we’re passionate about sharing what we know about the Port, that’s why we provide free presentations in our Discovery Centre at Canada Place and participate at 40 community events in the Lower Mainland each year. To learn more about the Port, visit or follow us on Twitter @PortMetroVan.

We are a proud partner of Canada’s Pacific Gateway: A fast, reliable and integrated network of seaports, airports, railways and roadways connecting Canada and the North American market to Asia and the world.

We actively monitor and measure our social, economic and environmental performance. To read our annual reports, including our second sustainability report, visit accountability We manage port operations, security incidents and emergency responses through our 24/7 Operations Centre located at Canada Place. Oil has been safely shipped through Burrard Inlet for 100 years. 1 out of every 12 workers in the Lower Mainland earns a living because of a port-related business. That includes more than 3,500 jobs in Delta alone.

WIN A BOAT TOUR! Email or tweet @PortMetroVan with the answer to the following question, and be entered into a draw to win a harbour tour of Burrard Inlet.

Name one of our many environmental initiatives. Contest closes Friday, August 24, 2012.

New business offers nature programs this weekend Experienced naturalist Krystal Brennan to lead initial Nurturing Nature outings at Ladner Harbour Park

A new business in Delta will be offering nature programs for everyone from preschoolers to adults throughout the year. The first such programs will be the weekend of Aug. 18 and 19 at Ladner Harbour Park. Experienced naturalist

Krystal Brennan will be leading engaging programs that will allow Delta residents to discover the signs animals leave behind in our local trails. Children can explore our natural world through exciting activities and crafts — they can talk

to the birds and even play a game with a slug. Adults will be amazed at the secret world that nature can reveal through tracks, paths, bird songs and many more wild clues in right here in Delta. Birdhouses and mason

bee boxes will also be available for purchase at these walks to turn backyards into wildlife habitats. Nurturing Nature hopes to increase local residents’ knowledge about our natural world to encourage environmental appreciation and

stewardship. These hour-long programs are $7 per person and parents coming with children are free. Fifteen per cent of all proceeds from these programs will be donated to Free the Children, a

Canadian non-profit organization that aims to end child labour. Call 778-999-4175, visit or email for more information about these programs and to register.

The Cruise Cats, featuring Gail and Doug Hawksworth (left) and members of the Jitterbug Junkies (top), will take the audience on a toetapping stroll down memory lane at KinVillage Aug. 25.

Cruise Cats bringing the swing dancers. “This show comes from the heart, we truly wanted to create something that would bring back good memories of the ‘50s era through costumes, recognizable songs and dance style of the ‘50s,” she explains. “The audience is always enthusiastic and we get comments such as, “you make me feel young again.” The pair now incorporates music from the 1940s and ‘50s, which appeals to all ages, she says. The musicians will be accompanied by six dancers who will provide a “high energy” demonstration of the various styles of jitterbug, including the lindy hop, jive

and swing dance. The dancers are members of the group Jitterbug Junkies, which specializes in performing authentic swing dances. “They are fully costumed to fit the era and the audience is often surprised by the energetic, fast-paced dancing. But they are always encouraged to join in and enjoy doing that,” she says. The Hawksworths have been performing as a duo in Metro Vancouver’s pub and private club circuits since getting married in 1989. Gail, originally from England, had extensive private voice training during the mid 1980s while Doug is a versatile guitarist, accord-

ing to the duo’s website bio. He studied various styles of guitar including classical, flamenco, R&B, and rock and played with different notable bands through the Sam Feldman Agency during the ‘80s. Doors will open to the Cruise Cats Sock Hop at 6 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. followed by dancing from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are available at KinVillage Community Centre, which is located at 5430-10th Ave., Tsawwassen or by calling the centre at 604-943-0225. Tickets cost $32 for members and $35 for non-members.

This show comes from the heart, we truly wanted to create something that would bring back good memories... Gail Hawksworth


swinging evening of entertainment is planned for Aug. 25 at KinVillage when the Cruise Cats will take you back to the “toe tapping” music of the 1950s and ‘60s. “There is a greater interest in swing today with many young people embracing the music and dance,” says Gail Hawksworth, who with her husband Doug will be providing the music. The Hawksworths, known by their professional name as Cheek to Cheek, have been working together as musicians for more than 20 years. Gail wanted to put together a show that would include live

A luxurious side to ‘roughing it’ BY


Optimist contributor

We both love the great outdoors but when it comes to doing the ‘camp thing’ my husband and I don’t quite jive. Although he’d be content to cuddle in a mummy bag of eiderdown, my spine goes into spasm after sleeping on a mattress of earthy rough stuff. I’m also not crazy about canvas homesteads or baked beans. Thanks to these luxurious rural retreats, we can leave those tent pegs behind. While blending the rustic and refined, these B.C. properties offer plenty of outdoor adventures and pampering at the same time. Albreda Lodge Mountain mania, helistyle. It’s like a Warren Miller scene when visiting powder hounds are whisked away to this posh lodge in the Monashee Range. The property, created by heli-guru Mike Wiegel, offers everything from steep and deep

to après ski seductions. De-stress at the fullfledged spa, re-fuel on chefprepared cuisine then heli away to snow riddled peaks. You’ll surely catch big air and get a good run for your money! Echo Valley Ranch and Spa Calling all luxury-loving cowboys (and girls)! If you want a rustic dude ranch, then steer your stallion in a different direction. If you’re fancying five star accommodations, cuisine, and spa specialties with a unique east/west blend, then giddy-up to this getaway. After riding the range, hiking to neighboring peaks and reeling in a fresh daily catch, bowlegged city slickers will discover true bliss at the Baan Thai Spa. Elisi Spa and Wilderness Resort — Safari or spa? Try both, and more, at this hedonistic fly-in that’s enshrouded by the northern Rockies. Check out moose, elk, and wolverine while on a photo shoot safari; catch an exhilarating wave on riverboat ride; hike, bike


For renewal, head to The Hills. The Hills Health Ranch is located in the Cariboo.

or ride horseback to florafilled meadows. When the day is done, the mountain magic makes its way into eight guest rooms, a hightech gym, and an ahhh ... some spaaa! King Pacific Lodge One heavenly houseboat! From May to September, this floating wonder comes alive when anchored next to uninhabited Princess Royal


Island. Although remotely sandwiched between the Great Bear Rainforest and sapphire Pacific, this retreat boasts all the bells and whistles of a boutique hotel. Seventeen deckedout rooms lure adventuring anglers and romantics. Soaker tubs, steam room and soothing massage are perks at the end of each day — along with a starry sky.

Nimmo Bay Resort Finding Nimmo is like discovering paradise. This secluded fly-in hideaway near Port McNeill, B.C. caters to every breakaway whim. As well as dishing out lots of hospitality the Murray family know how to tailor make any adventure. Whether it’s heli-fishing, heli-rafting, heli-trekking, or heli-day trips to check out wildlife, waterfalls or whales, when combined with their cozy abodes and finger-licking cuisine, you’ll have one heli of a good time. Sonora Resort Hardly roughing it. This fisherperson’s paradise reels in wilderness seekers to its isolated locale on the Inside Passage. Guests can cruise the Pacific blue, where arching orcas and trophysize salmon hang out. Others may take flight to check out grazing grizzlies, virgin ski slopes and heaven-bound hikes. And when these eco hounds return to their luxurious home base, they’ll magically transform

into culinary experts and spa denizens. The Hills Health Ranch For renewal, head to The Hills. This holistic haven provides a kickstart towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. Shed a few pounds, build a little muscle. Amidst their 20,000 acres of Cariboo ranchland there are daily fitness programs, 18 spa treatment rooms, three lounges and professional guides for hiking, riding, canoeing and biking. With a team that includes kinesiologists, personal trainers, and body therapists, how can you go wrong? Ahhh ... roughing it with a little luxury. It sure beats waking up in a clammy mummy bag with four stiff limbs. Yes, this is my kind of camping!

Very professional,” he said. “I would highly recommend these two for any occasion and any setting.” Food will be prepared in the Earthwise earth oven, by chef Derek Bothwell of Chill Winston in Gastown. Chill Winston partners with Earthwise Society on a unique field to table program for the chefs and culinary staff. Every week a team from Chill Winston visits the Earthwise Farm to learn about growing food and to help with the harvest of fresh organic vegetables and fruits, to be incorporated in their menu. Proceeds from Music in the Garden will go to support Earthwise Society’s education programs in organic agriculture and ecological gardening, which include curriculum-

We have had a busy and exciting few months at the Foundation and a lot has been accomplished! I would like to share a few of the highlights with you. We “kicked off ” the Cardiac Care Fund this past June and already we have raised $248,000. The hospital’s Master Concept Plan was approved and we are now awaiting final direction from Fraser Health for the business plan. New ceiling lifts have been purchased for the ER and now almost every bed in the department has been equipped with this important technology.

The community’s continued and generous support has enabled these projects to become a reality and so much more! Our sold-out 13th Annual Delta Health Golf Classic took place on June 14th. This incredibly successful golf tournament, presented by the Delta Fire Fighter Charitable Society, raised over $164,000 for the new Cardiac Care Fund. This summer we said goodbye to our long-serving executive director, Teresa Cooper. After 7 years with our organization, she leaves an impressive legacy as she helped this hospital grow and develop. On behalf of the whole board of directors I would like to sincerely thank her for her dedication to this community and her investment in Delta Hospital. At the same time, we are very excited to welcome Veronica Carroll as our incoming executive director. Her 25 years working with non-profits have been marked by outstanding performance. We are thrilled to have her on board to lead Delta Hospital and the Foundation in preparing for the future needs of this community and our donors. On behalf of the Foundation, I would like to thank all our supporters and donors for their generous help with all our programs each year.

Late summer brings bright fall flowers As summer annuals start to wither and die, fall flowering perennials are ready to burst

Green Room


n late summer when annuals are lanky, tired and dried out, a whole contingent of fall-flowering perennials are opening fresh buds for a display of colour that continues from August to frost. Some enjoy shade. For instance, the hardy fuchsia is perfect for planting under a north-facing window. There, the humming birds it attracts give hours of entertainment as they suck nectar from its single, fairly small but very numerous purple and pink flowers. For reliable root hardiness, it is important to grow the basic species, Fuchsia magellanica. This dies to the ground in most winters but always re-sprouts in spring. Clumps are tolerant of most soils, slowly increase and can be divided in spring when frost season’s over. This fuchsia has many hybrids some of which are said to be hardy. These may be root-hardy on south slopes and in coastal gardens, but need a very mild winter to do well in the Fraser Valley. The golden-leaf form has been root-hardy in my zone 7 garden. Another long flowering, iron-hardy perennial is the Japanese anemone (Anemone japonica). Most grow close to three feet (one metre) tall and produce cup-shaped single flowers with a prominent yellow or green centre. The white and green-eyed hybrid ‘Honorine Jobert,’ is especially lovely and so are the pale pinks. Japanese anemone also has blazingly pink flower types and also double-flow-

ered ones. Transplant roots establish easily. Meanwhile mother re-shoots in the original spot no matter how hard you try to relocate her. Her progeny are equally stubborn. Then there’s Verbena bonariensis, which begins flowering in early August and continues almost till frost. The airy purple flower heads are at the end of rigid, spreading stems which rise to about two feet (60 centimetres). It’s a sun-loving South American immigrant and roots don’t always survive the winter. Since it seeds with great abandon, this isn’t a problem in relaxed gardens. Meticulous gardeners may decide it’s a weed. But this plant is a delightful companion plant since it rises above most of its neighbours without blocking light. Other sun-lovers include the late-flowering perennial daisies. Some of the prettiest are the Fall Asters, which produce bright pink, purple and white daisy flowers in such profusion they can cover the plant. Like all the daisy types, bees love them. Many dwarf varieties no more than 12 inches (30 centimetres) are available. These need dividing about once a year. When the middle of the clump begins thinning out, it’s time to take the plant up and replant sections of the vigorous outer ring. Other good-looking daisy types include the Gloriosa daisies (Rudbeckia hirta) species and hybrids and Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldsturm.’ Both are bright yellow daisies with black or brown central cones. They love sun and tend to spread and seed around. People who love spring crocuses would also

Fun Beyond the Green

The 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open at The Vancouver Golf Club will be a chance for spectators to do more than just watch a world class golf event.

When the CN Canadian Women’s Open comes to The Vancouver Golf Club this August 20-26, it will involve more than just golf. Sure, internamonal superstars from the LPGA Tour will gather in Coquitlam, B.C. to show oe their skills and treat spectators to world class golf, but beyond the swinging clubs and farlying golf balls, there is even more fun to be found onsite during the tournament. With free admission for juniors age 17 and under and mckets priced as low as $25 for adults, the CN Canadian Women’s Open is a fun and aeordable family oumng that appeals to all ages. Beyond watching the world’s best golfers compete, it is a chance to introduce children to the game of a lifemme, all while enjoying the picturesque surroundings at one of the country’s knest golf courses. Onsite acmvimes like the Junior Golf Skills Challenge cater to all skill levels by allowing juniors and adults to test their

chipping, driving, and pugng skills in pursuit of prizes and the thrill of seeing their name on the Leaderboard. In addimon, junior golfers can ajend the free LPGA Superstar Clinic on Tuesday, August 21 hosted by some of the world’s best female golfers. “We’re bringing world-class golf to the Coquitlam community and when spectators arrive onsite, there will be something for everyone,” said Sean Van Kesteren, Tournament Director of the CN Canadian Women’s Open. “With more than 1,200 volunteers and onsite acmvimes for adults and juniors of all ages, this is a big event coming to Coquitlam and I’m sure the response from the community will be fantasmc.” Beyond the event fanfare and fun, there is an important charitable element to the CN Canadian Women’s Open. Since 2006, the CN Miracle Match program has raised $6.5 million in host communimes of the CN Canadian Women’s Open. This year, a pormon of

any regular-priced mcket will go toward the charity, and spectators will have an opportunity buy a CN Miracle Match lanyard on site to gain exclusive access to spectator grandstand on the 18th green. Funds raised will go towards a charity near and dear the hearts of the cimzens of Brimsh Columbia: the BC Children’s Hospital. “Community-minded partners like CN and Golf Canada play an important role in keeping BC Children’s Hospital at the forefront of pediatric medicine,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundamon. “Funds raised though the CN MiracleMatchprogram will help us ensure we conmnue to provide the best health care possible for our children today and in the future.” The Vancouver area has experienced its fair share of impressive spormng events, between the 2010 Olympics and the stars of the PGA Tour compemng in the RBC Canadian Open at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club last year. This mme, it’s the LPGA Tour players taking their talents to Canada’s west coast, and despite their fame and success on the course, these golkng stars are

approachable and fan-friendly. Be sure to take along that autograph book! Pracmce rounds and Pro-Am events will take place Monday through Wednesday with four tournament rounds set for Thursday through Sunday. If you can’t make it out to the event onsite, rounds 1 and 2 will be broadcast on TSN with weekend coverage of Rounds 3 and 4 on CBC (check your local lismng for broadcast mmes). With so many opmons throughout the

week, The CN Canadian Women’s Open is a chance for golfers and non-golfers alike to enjoy a wonderful day at the historicVancouverGolfClub,experience golf greatness, and support an important cause...all while having a good mme. Be sure to check out the CN Canadian Women’s Open acmon live at The Vancouver Golf Club from August 20-26.

Lots of hardware for breakthrough season

Delta Junior “A” Islanders win league MVP, top defensive player and coach-of-the-year awards after advancing to finals BY


The Delta Islanders best season in franchise history was reflected on Monday when the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League announced its annual individual awards. The Islanders walked away with plenty of hardware, highlighted by three major winners. Departing third-year veterans Mike Mallory and Cody Hawkins were named Most Valuable Player and Best Defensive Player respectively, while Shaun Springett and his staff were named Coach of the Year. Mallory finished third in league scoring with 74 points in 17 games, including 35 goals. He also finished just behind teammate Logan Schuss in playoff scoring with 51 points in just 10 games. The Maple Ridge native, who was the team’s top pick in the one-time league midget draft five years ago, was also named the league’s Top Graduating Player. Hawkins provided outstanding defensive play and leadership as the Islanders captain this season. The standout athlete spent much of his career playing alongside his good friend Sean O’Neil. The pair were also standout football players, first for the South Delta Rams, then at the high school level for the Seaquam Seahawks. “Cody was a great captain and a terrific kid,” said Springett. “We’re definitely going to miss him and the other graduating players that played a big part in what we accomplished this year.” Mallory and Hawkins were also named to the league’s first all-star team. The Islanders saw their memorable campaign end last week with a five game loss to the Coquitlam

Adanacs in their first-ever appearance in the league finals. The next step for the franchise is to become a perennial contender and not just a one year wonder. Springett is confident that will happen. He will have an impressive core of returning players to work with including Eli McLaughlin who was just edged out for the league’s top rookie award. Others such as Mike Henry, Tyler Nett and Sam Clare will pick up the scoring slack being left behind by Mallory and Schuss, while Cody Nass is expected to skip his final year of intermediate in Richmond and join Delta on a full-time basis next season. He led the intermediate “A” league in scoring this past season and had 25 points in 10 games as a call-up. In the back end, Dan McDermott, Taylor Northway, Ben Snider and Mike Donaldson will be among the key returning players. Goaltender Will Schwan had an impressive rookie season and amazingly still has four more years of junior eligibility. The local product will also be fully recovered from a concussion that limited his play in the post-season. “It was so important we reached the finals with all those first year players we have,” said Springett. “Now the only thing they know is getting that far so that is where the expectations will be. “I know a lot of people think we overachieved but where we ended up is exactly where I thought we would be. A year and a half go, we had a mojo against New Westminster that we had to overcome and then it was Coquitlam but I think we showed in the finals we got over that too. I’m very proud of what the boys have




The unsung work of Delta Islanders captain Cody Hawkins earned him the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League’s top defensive award and a first team all-star selection. accomplished and I think we have opened the eyes of the lacrosse community. This is where kids want to play. “When we came onboard, we revamped a lot of things that I think raised a lot of eyebrows at

first, but once the players started to see the results, they bought into it. We’re definitely excited about next season.” Three who won’t be back in 2013 are goaltender Pete Dubenski and offensive players Mitch Parker

and Ryan Watson. The three were acquired near the league trading deadline under the agreement they will return to their former teams. Dubenski and Parker will be headed back to Nanaimo and Watson to Burnaby.

Tsawwassen’s Pelling to continue hoop career at Trinity Western “Jon comes from a successful program and his future looks bright,” said TWU head coach Scott Allen said. “Jon is an explosive athlete with a great offensive touch.” This past season with White Rock, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard averaged 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game. For his efforts, was he named a Surrey High

Tides at Tsawwassen Pacific Standard Time. Height in feet

School All-Star. Off the court, Pelling also participated in WRCA Guatemala Grade 11 missions trip in 2011. “It has long been my goal in basketball to play at a high level and eventually at the CIS level,” said Pelling, who plans to study business. “I’m excited and pleased to have

the chance to now do that and I look forward to contributing to the Spartans for years to come.” The Spartans are coming off a 2011-12 campaign in which they finished the regular season with a 10-8 record and qualified for the Canada West playoffs by clinching the wild card position.

The Ladner Stingrays will be well-represented at this weekend’s B.C. Summer Swimming Championships in Nanaimo after a strong showing at the Fraser South Regional Meet. Thanks to excellent work by the Stingrays coaching staff, the club will be sending 22 swimmers to Vancouver Island. The Regionals, held at Watermania in Richmond, featured plenty of outstanding performances with several races featuring Ladner swimmers touching the wall in first and second place. Here is a rundown of the top results: Division One Ryan McCarthy (1st 100 free, 100 IM; 2nd 50 free).

August 17, 2012 The Delta Optimist A43 Delta ’97A Heat girls fastpitch team enjoyed plenty of success in its first year playing at the U16 level, includng a fifth place finish at last month’s provincial championships. The girls also managed a bronze medal finish in the Gold Division at the Canadian Open tournament.

’97A Heat show plenty of promise with 5th place finish at provincials

The Delta ‘97A Heat girls fastpitch team concluded an impressive season with a fifth place finish at the recent U16A Provincial Championships. As a first-year team at this age level, the Heat showed they were more than capable of competing with older opponents throughout the season and the provincials were no exception. Delta went 4-0 in round-robin play and earned the number one seed for the playoff round in the 14-team event. After a nail biting loss to the Abbotsford Outlaws, the girls rebounded with a 10-0 win over the Surrey Storm with pitcher Kendra Ho tossing a perfect game. Vanessa Patrignani called a great game behind the plate and right fielder Addison Leigh made some important outs to prevent the Storm from gaining any momentum. The hitting department was led by Tia Lore who went 3-for-3 It what proved to be the team’s final game, the Heat and the White Rock ’96 Renegades engaged in a slugfest with the rivals combining for 20 runs and 24 hits. With her team down early, Sierra Sherritt provided a spark with a two RBI triple but Delta was unable to make a comeback. Earlier, the locals finished third in the 18-team Showcase Gold Division at

the Canadian Open Women’s Fastpitch International Championships. The route to the bronze medal finish saw the girls compile a 9-2 record with wins against teams from Alberta, BC, Ontario, Oregon and California. Their only two losses came at the hands of the tournament champions — Victoria ’96 Devils. With two key pitchers — Montana Monk and Taylor Woodward — sidelined with injuries, the Heat headed into the playoff round with just nine available players. Still, the girls pressed on with terrific pitching from Jesse Goddard and Ho. Combined with some excellent infield defense from Lauren Watson at second base and Danielle Martyniuk at first, Delta surrendered an average of less than two runs per game. Strong batting from Laura Baldry, Jordan Britten-Yung and Shelby Cumiskey resulted in averaging six runs per outing. Pick-up Maria Palmegiana added to the team’s success, and bat girl Melody Pilchak was a great help. Under coaches Steve Couper, Bill Sherritt, Kenneth Ho and Darryl Leigh, the Heat finished the season with a 51-21-2 record that also included a third place finish at a 45-team tournament in Las Vegas and third in Richmond.

WAND - Reginald (Reg) 1924 - 2012

Reg passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at age 88. Reg will be sadly missed and always remembered by his loving family, including his wife of 66 years, Bernice, his children, Rox (Treana), Dianne (Phil) and Ken, his grandchildren Deneen (Curtis), Marlise (Ed), Gordon, Darryl (Christine), Michael (Briana) and David (Krista), his great grand-children, Sharaya, Autumn, Ashton, Nathan, Caiden, Brennen and Summer. He is also survived by his brothers, Ralph (Diane) and Sid (Jean) and sister, Pearl (Paul), as well as many nieces and nephews and friends. Reg was in the Air Force for his early working years, and later, Hospital Administration until he retired. He loved camping, music, Hawaiian Vacations, Hawaiian Dancing with Bernice and spending time with family and friends. Reg was a loving and honest man, always quick with a joke. It was a gift to his family and friends to have known him. His family would like to thank the staff at Delta Hospital for taking such good care of Reg (Dad) during his final days. We are very grateful to them. A Celebration of Life Tea will be held on Aug. 26, 2012 @ 3:00pm, at KinVillage, 5430 10th Ave, Delta (Tsawwassen) for family and friends. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Delta Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice.

PETERSON - Dean Thomas

The world is poorer today, for it has lost a gentle soul. Dean Thomas Peterson left his world of suffering and began his next journey on August 8, 2012. He was 64 years old when he died of cancer. He was born October 20, 1947, to Wendell Peterson and Jean 'Tommy'Thomson Peterson in Lewiston, Idaho. He graduated from Lewiston High School, and attended the University of Idaho. Dean was affiliated with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He served his country in the United States Army as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. It was a war fought by the young, and Dean often commented “they called me ‘the old man,’ and I was 23.” During that conflict, he served extensively as flight leader – “Yellow One” – and was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, among many other decorations and honors. When he returned home, he moved to Canada, and continued his career as a helicopter pilot, eventually co-founding the Ladner-based Union Helicopters. Union specialized in fire-fighting and helicopter logging. Dean also flew archeological missions in the far north, where his expertise in “how things look from the air” led to discoveries of ancient native campsites. In his semi-retirement, Dean worked with Winning Trophies, of Ladner. Dean was closely affiliated with Ladner Branch #61 of the Royal Canadian Legion, where he forged many lasting friendships. His constant companion was Sultana, a remarkably intelligent and wonderfully trained dog. As Dean explained it, Sultana presented him with a conundrum: “the problem is really three-fold: she’s smarter than I am, she’s faster than I am, and she knows it.” Dean is survived by his siblings Phil (Pam) Peterson, Doug (Judy) Peterson, Wendy (Bill) Armstrong, and Darlene Storey; his nieces and nephews; his many cohorts at the Legion; and his close friend, Vicki Huntington. Dean’s life will be fondly remembered during a gathering at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #61 in Ladner, on Saturday, August 25th, at 1 p.m.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The last few days of August’s “syrupy” romantic phase could be its most significant (late Sunday night to midnight Tuesday). Significant because the chips are down: a recent attraction either steps up to a realistic commitment, or flounders/ends on a sober delay/refusal. Failure is no worse than success here. Wednesday begins a month of chores, employment or health concerns, machinery, and duties toward dependents. It begins well, with clever ideas, affectionate co-workers, and financial potential – early uncertainty will turn to Saturday’s inspiration. Good friend, Friday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The last few days of August’s “syrupy” romantic phase could be its most significant (late Sunday night to midnight Tuesday). Significant because the chips are down: a recent attraction either steps up to a realistic commitment,t or flounders/ends on a sober delay/refusal. Failure is no worse than success here. Wednesday begins a month of chores, employment or health concerns, machinery, and duties toward dependents. It begins well, with clever ideas, affectionate co-workers, and financial potential – early uncertainty will turn to Saturday’s inspiration. Good friend, Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A lot of talk, travel, visiting, paperwork, writing and reading ends midweek, as a month of quieter, down-home focus begins. Until late September, indulge a sluggish feeling, seek nutrition, garden, befriend Mother Nature, and nurture others, especially kids. This is a good time to build foundations in business and personal zones – and to acquire a home or business premise. Romance lures and frustrates (because you blow hot and cold) Monday/Tuesday: if you succeed, it’s “destiny.” Tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday – you’ll succeed. Paradox: both lethargy and (lucky) work lie ahead.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of short trips, communications, paperwork, siblings and casual friends begins Wednesday. (Earlier, a foundational, child-oriented, home-bound two days grounds or roots you, giving a “platform” – or simply the physical rejuvenation – from which to launch those emails, trips, and casual meetings.) The friendly, active weeks ahead will be unusually pleasurable, creative, even romantic – your courage and determination will march at a two-year high in these areas. If single, you’ll shed shyness – and might seek love with someone prestigious. Many hints of this late week! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Talk, write, travel, visit, empty your job jar of paperwork, details and errands Monday/Tuesday. This will clear the decks for a month of increased earnings, of buying and selling, to start Wednesday. You might take a brief respite Wednesday/Thursday to rest and rejuvenate, or you might swab the floors and clean house, but as you do, your thoughts and imagination can sense that a new world is opening in money areas (and in sensual, sexual zones) – for 15 years. Worry about this turns to inspiration by Saturday. Home’s fractious to Oct. 6. Romance, pleasure brighten late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money early week. Weeks of solitude and weariness end Wednesday, and a month of high energy, charisma, effectiveness, accomplishment and power begins. It might start with some worry about your direction, your place in the world, and relationships – but by Saturday a swell of inspiration, a new idea, begins to bring certainty – a new kind of certainty based not on logic and analysis (your favourite methods) but on inspiration, intuition, beauty and nuance. For success and peace of mind over the next 14 years, accept this process – flowing inspiration over “stable logic.”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of popularity and entertainment ends with a final satisfying note Monday/Tuesday. You feel solid, capable and “in place.” A month of reduced energy and increased quietude begins Wednesday – though it begins while your energy is high, so you can coast for awhile, at least until next week. Still, begin to be sensible about your diet, sleep patterns and health needs. Be spiritual, charitable. Chase money Wednesday/ Thursday. Travel, communications, errands and casual acquaintances fill late week. A possibly brilliant idea combines work, money and someone – a co-worker? Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’ve worked hard (we hope) over the last four weeks. Now (Monday/ Tuesday) slump into deep rest; let projects run themselves – but do attend a closed door, planning or management meeting (or therapy session) Monday p.m. – it could have a lucky outcome. Your energy and charisma rise strongly Wednesday/Thursday – just as a month of popularity, social delight, flirtation, entertainment, optimism and wish fulfillment begins. A romantic, creative urge strikes almost immediately – by Friday/Saturday you could either fulfill a romantic fantasy, or have trouble deciding between two! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A month of woolgathering, learning, travel and cultural involvements ends. You attended at least one ritual (wedding, funeral, bat mitzvah, etc.). Monday/Tuesday bring happiness, popularity, perhaps light romance. (A mate prospect might show between 7:50 and 8:30 p.m. PDT.) Wednesday, though, says the fun is over: a month of ambition, pressure, tests, prestige relations and status concerns begins. Just the prospect might weigh you down mid-week: be willing to nap, rest.Your energy and effectiveness surge back Friday/Saturday – start important things! Inspiration’s “true.”

Build Results

August 19 - 25, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sunday’s mellow but not important in practical ways. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday – you could grab a last-minute opportunity. (But not Monday morning: be cautious.) Wednesday/Thursday bring popularity, social joys, a light, fresh, optimistic feeling – in the six weeks ahead, one dream/wish/goal will end, but another, probably involving a child or real estate, will bubble up. Midweek also begins a month of travel, learning, understanding, gentle love and cultural involvements. You could make an intriguing, “dreamy” friend very soon. Rest, contemplate and plan late week. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Relationships move from open, exciting, unexpected, even challenging, to private, intimate, binding and consequential. The turning point is Wednesday, when a surge of ambition might arrive. Earlier, a “dark” Sunday yields to the gentle understanding of Monday/Tuesday.These latter days, you might have one last unexpected meeting, or have to decide between a relationship, or not. Chase your ambitions Wednesday – all’s good, but Thursday into Oct. 6, higher-ups can be testy, impatient: step softly. Late week brings friends, hopes, and deep nudges toward investment or sex. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Four weeks of work and drudgery end, yielding,Wednesday, to a month of fresh opportunities, challenge and co-operation, exciting relationships, public dealings, and possible relocation. Avoid quarrels and conflicts – they could turn to litigation. This danger lasts to early October. Daywise, Sunday’s a non-event. Mysteries, investments and sexual urges fill Monday/Tuesday, but not in the best way. Gentle love and understanding flow your way Wednesday/Thursday. You could meet someone exciting these days, as well as Friday/Saturday – love, insight, and good money ideas abound. • Reading: 604-560-1269
