King has eyes on mayor’s seat

Rookie councillor announces candidacy to make it two challengers for top civic job BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

First-term councillor Heather King announced Wednesday she will make a run for the mayor’s chair in November’s civic election. “I firmly believe we need a municipal government that listens to, and engages, its citizens,” she said. “I want to hear what the residents have to say about the issues of the day and the impact on their neighbourhoods. “City hall needs to serve with the highest level of integrity and transparency. As mayor, I will ensure that there will be candid, open debate to arrive at the best decision possible because I believe in good, fair and honourable governance.” Despite running for Delta council for the first time in 2008, King topped the polls with more than 13,800 votes. She previously served as a school board trustee for six years. King and husband Dean are longtime Delta residents and have three sons.

“I have consistently demonstrated that I work well with anyone and everyone to achieve consensus and success for Delta residents,” she said. “Delta is currently in sound financial shape. I will continue to ensure that Delta taxes stay low and municipal debt is reduced while our infrastructure is maintained.” King said she would welcome the opportunity to continue to serve the residents of Delta as mayor. “My current role as councillor has enabled me to serve Delta in a wide variety of ways,” she said. “As mayor, I would welcome the opportunity to do more for Delta and ensure that we provide the highest quality of services possible for you and your family.” King is the second candidate to declare for the mayoral race.

Teachers vote in favour of job action for September JESSICA KERR

As the school year wound down this week, teachers announced possible job action for September. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) announced Wednesday that teachers across the province voted overwhelmingly in favour of

taking job action. Ninety per cent of teachers who voted in a province-wide strike vote, held June 24, 27 and 28, indicated support for job action. About 70 per cent of teachers, 28,128, cast a vote. At issue are improvements to salaries and benefits, as well as government funding.

“Government would have the public believe that education funding is adequate, but it is simply not so,” said Paul Steer, president of the Delta Teachers’ Association. “Ten years of intentional constraint and forced cutbacks have squeezed the system and made it very difficult to meet students’ learning needs. It’s time

for government to re-dedicate resources to the public system.” Failing any progress in contract negotiations over the summer, teachers are poised to commenced “teach-only” job action on Tuesday, Sept. 6, the first day of the next school year. The “teach-only” campaign will see teachers continue teaching

duties in the classroom, as well as coaching and other extra-curricular activities, but halt any administrative duties. “This initial job action is designed to put pressure on the employer and the government, but to maintain regular classroom

Local churches help provide refuge

Middle Eastern family arrives in the Lower Mainland after two years in refugee camp outside Damascus BY

A group of local churches is sponsoring a refugee family from the Middle East. The family arrived last week at Vancouver International Airport. “When I realized the plane had touched down, after all those weeks and months of work and collection and stuff going on ... I just couldn’t help bursting into tears,” said Darlene Reppenhagen from Benediction Lutheran Church in Tsawwassen. “They were so happy to be here,” she added. She said the Tayyem family had been living in a

instruction for students and ongoing communication with parents,” Steer said. “Our aim is to demonstrate our commitment to students and their learning through a ‘teach-only’ campaign, and to bring pressure to bear upon government to bargain in good faith toward a negotiated agreement.”

BCTF president Susan Lambert said the strong “yes” vote shows teachers are united and are prepared to take action to achieve their goals of improved teaching and learning conditions, fair improvements to salary and benefits, and restoration of local bargaining rights.

son is already in Canada after being sponsored by a different group. Local churches sponsoring the family include Benediction Lutheran,

All Saints Anglican, Tsawwassen United and Sacred Heart. Peter Rose from Sacred Heart noted the sponsorship is part of a federal gov-

“Facing a concerted campaign by the government and the employer to turn back the clock on teachers’ rights and reverse hard-won provisions on due process, we have no choice but to take a stand for ourselves, our students and our profession,” Lambert said. “The employer is offering nothing and at the same time demanding we make many significant conces-

sion. That’s not collective bargaining. It’s just bullying.” Delta school district superintendent Dianne Turner said Wednesday that keeping teachers in the classroom is key. “We really have outstanding teachers,” Turner said. “All of this is hopefully leading towards a better working environment for teachers.”

KING from page 1 in 2008, announced her second bid for the top job last month. Engelland is running with One Delta, a new civic organization. “I’m running because I firmly believe we need a new direction at city hall,” she said. “I care deeply about Delta, its people, its

ernment program and the churches are responsible for looking after the family for a year. Fundraising will be ongoing, said Reppenhagen. They’ve found an apartment, which overlooks a park, in Burnaby for the Tayyems to live. Reppenhagen said Ferial Tayyem, the mom, got a sneak peak of the apartment. “She burst into tears, and said never in her whole life did she think she could live in such a beautiful place,” said Reppenhagen, who also wanted to thank Dyno-Mite Moving for moving donated furniture from Tsawwassen to Burnaby for the family.

Impaired crashes spike over long weekends Alexa’s Team continues to spread the message and honour police officers who keep the roads safe

Long weekends over the summer usually see a spike in the consumption of alcohol and drugs paired with driving. The result is often a serious injury or death caused by an impaired driver. “Normally, we would have seen a spike in impaired driving over the

May long weekend, but that wasn’t the case,” said Allan Lamb, president and COO of the BCAA Road Safety Foundation. “Police reported only two drivingrelated deaths that weekend and we hope to see a zero death rate over the July 1st long weekend.” In B.C., approximately two people are killed and 60 more injured per week at the hands of impaired drivers. Transport Canada statistics show impaired drivers cost the B.C. economy $1.6 billion per year, primarily through health, police and court costs. Recently, the BCAA Road Safety Foundation along with Laurel Middelaer, the mother of Alexa Middelaer, visited the four regions of the province to honour police officers that have been diligently removing impaired drivers from the roads of their communities. Over the past three years 425 officers have become members of Alexa’s Team and have taken over 19,000 impaired drivers off the roads — 8,616 alone in 2010. Four-year-old Alexa Middelaer was killed by an impaired driver in East Ladner in the spring of 2008. “While it is good news that more and more impaired drivers are being charged and penalized, the numbers are still outrageous,” said Lamb. “Impaired driving is still at epidemic proportions and drivers, family members,

friends and the community need to be earnest in their efforts to prevent impaired driving incidents.” Summer weekends see an increase in impaired driving, especially in those drivers coming from private functions such as barbecues and golf tournaments. Lamb encourages families, friends and hosts to be responsible in how they serve alcohol and to provide non-alcoholic options or transportation alternatives for those guests that have become impaired. “The key to reducing serious injuries is attitudes and behaviours. Taking that one moment to have a word with yourself could prevent injury and save your life,” said Dr. Ian Pike, spokesperson for The Community Against Preventable Injuries. Last year the provincial government introduced immediate roadside penalties to save lives, curb repeat offenders and give police more enforcement tools.

The National Household Survey is underway in Delta with approximately one in three households being asked to participate. The information collected is vital to communities for planning services, such as child care, schooling, family services, housing, roads and public transportation, and skills training for employment. Households can fill in the questionnaire online by using their secure access code or they can complete a paper questionnaire. Yellow packages, containing a questionnaire, information on how to complete the survey and the secure access code, have been delivered to each

selected household. The survey includes questions on citizenship and immigration, ethnic origin, Aboriginal identity, language of work, education, labour market activity, child care and support payments, income and housing as well as a question asking for consent to release the personal information collected to Library and Archives Canada after 92 years. Statistics Canada strongly encourages selected households to complete the survey so communities will have the information they need to make decisions. Respondents who need more information can call the Help Line at 1-877-3082777.

On June 20, the South Delta Secondary football team received a request from the Tsawwassen Rotary Club. The club was looking for a few strong young men to assist members to roll out sod at the Diefenbaker Park waterpark on the coming weekend. That evening a request was sent out to the players and the next day 13 Sun Devils confirmed they would be there to help. On Saturday, June 25, 16 players arrived at 8 a.m. and worked throughout the day, contributing more than 80 hours of time. They were expected to complete the project by 4 p.m., however they were finished laying all the sod by 2:30 p.m. Rotarians were very pleased with the players’ effort in helping work on the new waterpark, scheduled to have a grand opening on Thursday, Aug. 4. “They were really awesome,” said Vickie Sangster,

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW I’m thinking of filing a complaint against the Vancouver police. Even though I’m technically not a taxpayer in the jurisdiction, I think the force has been abusing the public purse for years by overstaffing for the many large-scale events the city hosts. Think Winter Olympics, Celebration of Light and, if you will, every Canucks playoff game leading up to that fateful night of June 15. In the aftermath of last month’s Stanley Cup riot, much has been made about the inadequacies of the police response, with particular attention being paid to the yet-to-be-disclosed number of officers that were on the street that night. I won’t argue with the contention that having more cops in the downtown core might have allowed authorities to get a handle on the free-for-all quicker, but as John Furlong told The Vancouver Sun last week, “no number of police officers can manage a crowd of 100,000.” The vilification of police in some corners got me wondering: If we can complain there aren’t enough officers when things go sideways, can’t we also grumble there are too many when all goes smoothly (or at least when the event doesn’t morph into a full-scale riot with more fires to put out than a Gordon Campbell government)? When an event goes well and Vancouver doesn’t suffer a black eye internationally, couldn’t it be argued we have too many cops on the street? Clearly they aren’t needed in such numbers if the celebrations are peaceful and generally law-abiding (as they were throughout the Canucks’ playoff run), so in these instances the boys (and girls) in blue are an unnecessary strain on the public purse, don’t you think? Yes, I realize it’s an absurd assertion, and I acknowledge that policing is as much about keeping the peace as it is apprehending the bad guys after the fact, but I make it to highlight the no-win situation police often find themselves in. A trouble-free event equals staffing overkill, yet on the other hand utter mayhem translates into inadequate preparedness. Mind you, even if the police department deploys as many officers as it can muster, it still might not be sufficient if there are enough yahoos bent on destroying the place. And that, unfortunately, was exactly the case following a disappointing Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. I’m not suggesting police actions in dealing with the rioters are beyond reproach, but they must be viewed in the context of a most extraordinary situation.

Rookie councillor shows she’s deserving of more than ‘pity’ NATHALIE HEIBERGHARRISON

COMMUNITY COMMENT Three years ago, on the night of the municipal election in Delta, municipal hall was a busy place to be. Husbands, wives, rivals and allies all crowded into the main atrium to watch the results stream in on television screens, and there may have even been refreshments, too, although I can’t quite remember. It was all very exciting. To this day, there is one thing from that night that stands out for me more than anything else: Heather King. It was the first time the Tsawwassen resident had ever ran for Delta council and when she won she couldn’t hold back tears. She had wanted the spot, had fought for the spot and, finally, had secured it. She garnered 13,821 votes,

which was more than any other councillor and, in fact, more than Mayor Lois Jackson. (Jackson got 11,104 votes that year, beating Krista Engelland, who got 8,156.) I remember asking her: why? Why did a first-time candidate blow the rest of them out of the water? She joked that she had earned the “pity vote” by going door to door in the rain, armed with an umbrella, to introduce herself and plead her case. I don’t think it was just the wet weather that won her a seat, though. Since then, the former school board trustee has proven to be a capable, hard-working and openminded councillor — three adjectives that, I would argue, can’t be used to describe all of our politicians in Delta. It’s not impossible to avoid being controversial as a member of council as King has done, but she has done so by keeping an open mind. When others are dead set in their ways, she listens. On top of that, she’s accessible. She has a website, a Twitter account and a phone number. If you have a question, she’ll answer it. On her website there’s a sec-

tion titled “Beliefs and Leadership Style” that I think sums it up nicely. “Authority is not power. Authority is great responsibility to be knowledgeable of the issues and understand the people who will be impacted by your decisions,” she writes. “You don’t achieve this in a vacuum. This can only be done by meeting with individuals in the community. My door is always open. I will buy the coffee.” I’m not trying to argue that King is the best candidate to vote for in the municipal election Nov. 19 — it’s too early to tell, anyway — but she is very worthy of being on that ballot. She will be running against Engelland, who has served five terms as a councillor in Delta, and both of them are promising to bring transparency and accountability back to municipal hall. Jackson, who has held her post for the past 12 years, hasn’t announced if she is running again. Other hats will be thrown into the ring over the summer, too, which all but guarantees King will be that small fish in the big pond, but I don’t doubt her opponents will be hoping for clear skies.

July 1, 2011 The Delta Optimist A7 Letters to the Editor

We’re better off at 10%: MLA

Editor: Re: MLA’s position on HST shows she’s no different than governing Liberals, letter to the editor, June 29 It is telling that the NDP’s Nic Slater and the Liberals’ Mike Schneider have both written deliberate misrepresentations of my actions on the HST. Is there election talk in the air? I supported the government motion to lower the HST to 10 per cent if the

public decides to keep the tax in the upcoming referendum. I was comfortable doing this because the people make the final decision. If the public chooses the HST, I felt we were better served by a 10 per cent tax. Contrary to what both Slater and Schneider might pretend to think, my vote was not a “clear” endorsement of the tax. It was a recognition the government was bribing us with a

reduced tax — and far be it from me to say no to any reduction in our taxes. How Slater can conclude I am helping the government “impose” the HST on British Columbians is beyond me. Spinning the truth for partisan ends is precisely what I deplore and is why I chose to offer the people of Delta South an independent alternative. Vicki Huntington Delta South MLA

Accounting requested on new traffic signal Editor: Re: Full traffic signal to be installed at 1st and 56th, June 24 According to the article, a full traffic signal — at a cost of $150,000 — is to be installed at the intersec-

tion of 56th Street and 1st Avenue. I wonder how much of that quoted “estimated cost” is made up by equipment and how much by labour; and, how much for bureaucratic input. While I do not disagree

with the need, I do wonder about the cost to Delta’s taxpayers. Perhaps, the cost is justified; however, a breakdown of the $150,000 cost would be appreciated. Bob Orrick

A8 The Delta Optimist July 1, 2011


July 1, 2011 The Delta Optimist A9

Editor: Kevin Falcon’s recent tirade about MLA Vicki Huntington’s clearly stated article about the HST propaganda was nasty and slanted, but it is Mike Schneider’s column I find most offensive. He is rude to those of us that support our MLA’s principled stand against the use of public funds for an ad campaign to essentially brainwash us into accepting higher taxes. Christy Clark’s B.C. Liberals have been producing propaganda. I do “listen to the radio every once and a while” and “watch news on TV” and “read the paper.” The half-page ad (our money) on page 6 of

the Optimist’s June 24 edition is a perfect example of the type of propaganda that is being sold to you by the B.C. Liberals with your own money. If you see the B.C. logo, you paid for it. Even the uninformed can surely see the B.C. Liberals’ blatant pushing of higher taxes in the form of the HST. The HST applies to items and services that were previously exempt with our initial system. If the new system means fewer taxes in government coffers, why would the government be so desperate to have our vote? Do you think Falcon and his cronies are advertising so they have less money to

play with after the referendum? No, the B.C. Liberals want more tax revenue to continue to build the South Fraser Perimeter Road. Thank you, Vicki Huntington, for truly representing Delta’s interests in Victoria. Where were the Liberals when we protested enormous power lines over our schools? Inform yourself about Falcon’s part in the environmental disaster we call the SFPR/Gateway. If you read the B.C. Liberal propaganda and take it as non-partisan, you might as well just drink the Kool-Aid. I agree with Schneider on one point: place a thoughtful vote. Jennifer Thoss

Tough loss to swallow in Game 7 of Stanley Cup finals but it’s time to get on with our lives Editor: What happened to sportsmanship in sport? The Canucks lost to the better team. They reached the finals and one side had to lose. They were beaten by an exceptional

goalie. Yes, it was a bitter pill to swallow, but life has its bitter pills. I still say, “Go Canucks, we love you.” Now let’s get on with life. Ann Baranszky

Sweet sweet Skor was surrendered to the shelter because her previous owners added a baby to their family and kept finding Little Miss Skor sleeping in the baby crib. They were concerned about this behaviour and so decided to surrender her. Skor has been around other cats, dogs, children and everything in between and has been tolerant and friendly with most. She is a little timid and unsure of her new surroundings and doesn't seem to handle stress very well; though we believe that it will not take her long to go back to her old ways!

Programs and services include developmental assessments, preschools, therapies, autism intervention programs, youth social programs, and family support and education. Reach recently launched a $4 million capital campaign to build a community-based child development centre in the heart of Ladner. The new centre will be bigger and more accessible than the current Reach centre in East Ladner, enabling more children, youth and families to

benefit from programs and services. “As a past president of the Rotary Club of Ladner, I am aware of Reach Society’s incredible community contributions and I know of no other project that will impact the community more than this one,” says Irene Forcier, chair of the Reach Foundation. The Rotary Club of Ladner has been in existence since 1957. This donation is through the Avenue of Community Service, where Rotarians give back to the places they

live in. “Supporting youth initiatives has become Rotary’s new Avenue of Service,” says club president Guillermo Bustos, “but it is especially important to support children and youth with special needs. We hope that other clubs and community organizations will join in this effort.” For more information about the Rotary Club of Ladner, contact incoming president Linda Ottho at 604-240-1733. For more about Reach, call 604-9466622 or visit www.reachdevelopment.org.

Reach Child and Youth Development Society was presented with a $20,000 cheque from the Rotary Club of Ladner last week in support of its work with children with special needs and their families. “We are grateful for this donation,” says Reach executive director Renie D’Aquila. “The Rotary Club of Ladner has provided a range of support to Reach Society over the years. Recently the Ladner Rotarians have physically helped with painting our sheds and buildings and participating in our preschool program. “Recognizing that 15 per cent of the population has special needs and that the incidence rates are increasing, we simply cannot meet the ever growing demand. Today’s generous donation from the Rotary Club of Ladner will enable more children and youth with special needs to receive the help they need.” Reach has been serving the community of Delta since 1959, supporting the development of children throughout all stages of

Hunters

Vancouver for the annual Summer Classic Hunter, Jumper Show. The schedule is a busy one, with every weekend booked until September. It seems that people who love horses, love to watch them perform their best. Horse shows are not only an amazing venue for performance horses. They offer riders and their families an opportunity to meet, build friendships and exchange knowledge and experiences. For some young riders, being part of a horse show can be life changing; more than one horse-crazy teen has announced to her parents that she wants to build a career around horses! Numerous parents have told us that involving their children in horses, and in showing, is the best thing they’ve ever done. So, if you see our new trailer on the road this summer, come in for a visit. We’ll be happy to show you what the excitement is all about. 03207000

Summer is the season for horse shows, and Greenhawk is taking to the road with a spiffy, new mobile store! Our 24-foot show trailer is stocked with all the equipment a show rider needs, from shampoos and fly sprays to saddle pads and horse treats. It’s a store-on-wheels with the added advantage of being able to be re-stocked throughout the day from the Greenhawk stores in Langley and Vancouver. Painted shiny black, the trailer is decorated with same dramatic horse head image featured on Greenhawk’s current catalogue. The trailer made its debut at Thunderbird Show Park in June for the BC Open Hunter, Jumper show and stayed to welcome dressage riders at The Touch of Class. On the hooves of that event came the first of three summer shows at Milner Show Park in Langley. From July 13 to 17, Greenhawk Mobile will be parked at Southlands Riding Club in

Jesus is Perfect Theology

Jesus is perfect theology! What do we believe? Who do we use as our example? Do we only believe in the things that seem logical? This has been one of the most challenging issues in the history of the church. It is a normal desire to want logical explanations for the events, successes and failures that take place in our lives. We want to be able to give others a “step-by-step” plan on how they can also achieve success and avoid failure in the future. We want the assurance that we have done everything possible to make sure that we are not to blame for the results that we are experiencing. We will justify these experiences by saying, “it must have been God’s will”. The challenge we face today is being able to truly identify the will of God in our lives. JESUS IS PERFECT THEOLOGY! JESUS IS THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD! It is only by looking at His life and example that

we can determine what the will of the Father is. When Jesus was in the midst of a storm, He spoke peace over the waves and wind and calmed the storm. When He came across the sick, He healed them. Jesus released those who were bound by demons and judged the religious who thought they were justified by what they were doing. He loved the poor in spirit when they knew that they didn’t deserve any favor. Jesus never caused anyone to die of sickness because He felt He needed to teach His disciples something. He never allowed anyone to be possessed by a demon or sickness so that they would “grow” through their suffering. Jesus said, “I have come to give life and life more abundantly”. The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy - Not the Father! We have shifted these two roles in our minds by saying that God is the one who is allowing disaster, death and destruction so

that we can “learn something through it”. When someone receives healing or is blessed financially, we say that it won’t last or we judge the person who prayed over them. Groups and opinions are formed to appose anything that is different from our traditions and comfort zone and that is challenging us to step out in faith. Jesus was probably one of the most uncomfortable people to ever be around, especially if you were caught in religion and not walking in relationship with Him. Jesus is our perfect theology! He is the one we should model our lives after and build our faith on. People ask, “What about Job and the Apostle Paul?” My question to them is, “What about them?” They are not the ones we are building our relationship and faith on. Jesus is! He was and is the perfect model of a Son that understood that his Father is the ultimate definition of GOOD.

On Canada Day, we have much to celebrate. We are fortunate to live in peace and freedom in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Come out and enjoy the Canada Day events being held in our communities. in our communities.

Slow down I hang out a lot with older people. There is a circle of older elders that I see regularly. They are a source of great blessing and wisdom for me. I find the more time I spend with old people, the better I see how fast the world is moving around me. It is clear that sometimes the pace of life is just plain crazy, and even dangerous. Rose and I were discussing how impatience was likely a factor in another elder we know being struck and knocked down by a car while in the crosswalk at 56th Street and 12th Avenue in Tsawwassen. She was hospitalized with a broken shoulder, was in a state of shock, and has had her confidence badly shaken. She is sight-impaired and so

I hope to see you there.

didn’t see who hit her. Rose says, “Slow down,” to me and to all of us. I repeat that sage advice to myself often: “Rose says slow down.” It helps me remember that in order to notice the other, and care for them, I need to slow down. In order to care for myself, I need to slow down. Psalm 23 is an alluring invitation to do the same: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.” As we take Rose’s advice (stop and smell the roses?) we will find rest and restoration for ourselves and, rather than hurting each other, we will notice and care.

Free summer concerts Series put on by Delta Parks and Rec has many July dates BY

DAVE WILLIS

L

ive music fans won’t have to travel far this summer to hear some tunes for free. Delta’s Concerts in the Park series is underway and there are a number of shows scheduled for July. One of those shows (July 5 at Diefenbaker Park) will feature local artist Matthew Presidente. The art-rock pianist/ singer/songwriter from Tsawwassen has been involved with the concert series since 2003 and says he looks forward to taking part in the event. “At these outdoor family-friendly events I try to maintain my high-energy performance style while putting on a show that has a little something for everyone,” Presidente says in an e-mail to the Optimist. For the July 5 show Presidente (on the piano) will be performing acoustically with Hazen Rice (on the guitar), a longtime friend and musical accomplice. “Playing with Hazen is marvelous — him and I share a deep passion for music and together we are able to riff off each other

and jam out very intuitively.” Presidente, who has independently recorded and released four full-length albums, notes he’ll be doing material from his newest album, This City’s Colors, some older songs of his as well as some covers of classics. Musically inspired by artists like Elton John, The Beatles, Cat Stevens and Leonard Cohen, Presidente debuted in 2001 and has showcased original material at venues around the Lower Mainland, including the Dufferin Hotel, the Railway Club and the Media Club. The Centennials will also get to perform in their hometown of Tsawwassen during the concert series. The indie rock band has a show scheduled for July 7 at Diefenbaker Park. Graeme Carswell, who plays percussion, says concert-goers can expect “a really chill, summer vibe” at the show. “I think we’re going to stick to originals, we don’t have any covers planned yet. We might throw in a couple that people recognize,” he says. The Centennials is made up of three other South Delta Secondary students

who are heading into Grade 12 — Sam Merritt and Parker Woods on vocals and guitar and Taylor Reynolds on bass and harmonica. Carswell is the most recent member of the band

and says he is enjoying his time with the group. “It’s been great. Playing percussion kind of adds a different feel to our music,” he says. “We love to play and we

have a lot of fun doing it.” Concerts in the Park shows are cancelled in inclement weather. Those who attend are advised to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs. Concerts are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. with the exception of a Delta Concert Band show that is set for a 7:30 p.m. start.

Cappadocia: A Turkish jewel Treasures include ancient sites, artistic marvels, scenery BY

MARGARET DEEFHOLTS Optimist contributor

The music is haunting: a solo flute plays a piercingly sweet melody supported by a soft steady drumbeat. An expectant hush falls on our audience as five men file into the circular arena and bow, with arms crossed against their chests, to a “master” standing at one end. They then take their places in a circle. Clad in long flowing white gowns, brown caps on their heads, they begin to twirl, slowly at first and then gaining speed, their skirts fanning out, arms outstretched, eyes closed and heads angled to one side. They are the whirling dervishes of Turkey. “Semâ,” as this ceremony is known, dates back to the life of a 13th century Sufi mystic named Rumi, who held the belief that all existence is circular, from the protons and electrons

revolving in an atom, to the orbit of celestial bodies in the firmament. The wheel of creation is the core of all being, and the act of whirling awakens a sense of divine one-ness with God. The music grows softer, and the dervishes as they spin anti-clockwise seem to be in a spiritual trance, one outstretched palm held upwards to receive heaven’s beneficence, the other one turned downwards to transmit blessings to the earth. The notes die away, the men open their eyes and come to a halt; they bow once more and then file out to their cells for a period of meditation. The ceremony is a fitting introduction to the area of Turkey we are about to explore. Cappadocia in the central Anatolia region is Turkey’s jewel casket. It is a treasure trove of ancient sites, artistic marvels and extraordinary scenery. As our tour group’s bus rounds a corner late one

A view of the fantastic landscape of Goreme.

evening, there is a collective intake of breath. It’s as though a curtain has suddenly been drawn to reveal an eerie landscape of white-caped limestone peaks standing fold upon fold like an army of pale ghosts looming against the gathering dusk. The next day, at a lookout near the town of Goreme, the scene is a children’s fairytale book come alive.

An enchanted land of twisted rock turrets, mysterious caves, fairy chimneys and gigantic magical mushrooms; a place where rocky outcrops transform themselves into imaginary stone wizards with tall hats, gaping mouths and hollow eyes. Then, a little further away, at Uchisar an immense cream-coloured limestone cliff pocked with

cave holes comes into view, prompting one of our group to exclaim: “Looks like a hunk of Swiss cheese!” Cappadocia has secrets that pierce the veils of time. In Kaymakli I step warily into a narrow aperture that fans out into a labyrinth of underground passages. The air smells dank and our voices bounce off the walls. This was once the hideout of as many as 5,000 early Christians forced underground by Roman persecution. The settlement had eight storeys (only four have been excavated so far) and apart from private living quarters, the complex also had a granary, water cisterns and animal barns. The community worshipped in a small chapel, celebrated festive occasions with wine from their cellar, and prepared meals in their kitchen. A ventilation chute provided fresh air even to a depth of four storeys. I stand in silence for a sec-

ond or two imagining how the walls around me had once echoed with the voices of people who’d loved, laughed, cried, married, raised their families — and endured a mole like existence rather than forsake their Faith. Amazing! I step out with relief into the bright sunshine. The open-air museum at Goreme showcases medieval cave-churches painted by Christian monks between 1000 and 1200 AD. The vivid Byzantine-era frescos are deserving of a better camera than mine, but no lens can capture the passion that went into the creation of these works of art that even after 10 centuries still have the power to transfix.

Upcycling author comes to Ladner

#37 - Camilo Forward

n an era of social consciousness, sustainable living has become the latest designer trend. The concept has caught on with ecological artisans, or upcyclers, who create iconic pieces from waste stream materials. These objects articulate a poignant message of today’s consumerism while inspiring creative methods to tread a little lighter on our planet. Upcycling blurs the line between art and craft with recycle-based designs. “Where most people only see waste, upcyclers see opportunity,” says Linda Bodo, the author of The Art of Upcycle. “Common day-to-day cast-offs are skillfully persuaded into a new function while still maintaining their previous character. Taking stewardship of our planet is a serious responsibility, but it can be done with a sense of humour.” Bodo says upcycling is a fulfilling, creative step towards polishing your eco-halo: easy on the earth, easy on the pocketbook and easy to accomplish.

Get out of that exercise rut

Spice up your regular routine with these new moves p.j. wren

Well on Your Way

H

ave you ever been in an exercise rut? You know the feeling, where you go to the gym and do the same set of exercises, week in and week out. While it is commendable that you are maintaining a regular exercise routine, you should be wary of giving of your body the same dose of physical conditioning each and every workout. While there are no researchbased standardized guidelines to follow with regards to how often we should change up our workout routines, I recommend changing some variable in your workout at least once every two weeks. This change could be simple, like increasing the weight being lifted or changing the speed/ tempo of the exercise or changing how many reps you do or

Then return to center and repeat to the right. Return to center, lower your legs, and do a sit-up (picture 1b), keeping your arms straight above you.

so that you are now on the sides of the feet and the arm on the ground is under the shoulder and the other arm is straight up above the shoulder forming a “T” (picture 2).

4. Instead of a seated row: Do a renegade row • Grab a pair of 10- to 15pound dumbbells and get into a plank position with your hands on the weights and your feet hip width apart. • Lift you right arm up and raise the dumbbell until your elbow passes your torso, pressing the left dumbbell into the floor for balance and keeping the hips quiet (picture 4). • Lower your arm and perform the same with your right. This is one rep. P.J. Wren is a local personal trainer and writer in the Delta area who can be reached at www. fitnesswithpj.com.

2. Instead of a push-up: Do a T push-up • Start off with a standard pushup, feet hip width apart and the hands either directly under your shoulders or slightly wider. • As your body rises out of the push-up, rotate your entire body

3. Instead of squat: Do a single-leg Bulgarian lunge • Stand with a bench about three feet behind you (for added intensity you can hold a pair of dumbbells). Place one foot on the bench so the top of the foot faces the floor. • Keeping your torso upright, lower your body until the thigh of the front leg is parallel to the floor, then press yourself back up to the starting position.

The Sidekick Players Club opens its 15th season with Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men this fall at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre. Director Carroll Allan will be holding auditions for this classic play on Monday, July 11 and Tuesday, July 12, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Sidekick Rehearsal Hall in the arts centre, 1172-56th St. Callbacks (if necessary) will be Wednesday, July 13. The drama depicts a jury forced to reconsider its nearly unanimous decision by the single dissenter who sows a seed of reasonable doubt. The story begins after closing arguments have been presented in a homicide case, as the judge is giving his instructions to the jury.

As in most American criminal cases, the 12 men must unanimously decide on a verdict of guilty or not guilty. (In the justice systems of nearly all American states, failure to reach a unanimous verdict, a socalled hung jury, results in a mistrial.) The case at hand pertains to whether a young man murdered his own father. The jury is further instructed that a guilty verdict will be accompanied by a mandatory death sentence. These 12 then move to the jury room, where they begin to become acquainted with the personalities of their peers. Throughout their deliberation, not a single juror calls another by his name because the names are unknown by the jurors. Several of the jurors have different reasons for

discriminating against the witness: his race, his background and the troubled relationship between one juror and his own son. Auditions will be on a first-come, first-served basis with a cold read from the script. Requirements are 13 men from 21 to 70s. One must have a European accent. This is a non-equity production and all successful actors must become members of the Sidekick Players Club. Production dates are Thursday to Saturday, Oct. 20 to Nov. 5. Production staff is also required and new members are always welcome. Contact carroll. Lefebvre@hotmail.com if you are interested in joining Delta’s longest-running, award-winning theatre company.

Team Canada camp shortens Olsen’s summer Saskatoon Blades sophomore forward looking to crack roster of U18 team for upcoming tournament in Europe BY

MARK BOOTH

mbooth@delta-optimist.com

Ryan Olsen’s summer holidays are being cut short and the Tsawwassen teen doesn’t mind one bit. The 17-year-old member of the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades will be getting a head start on his return to the prairies after being among 42 players invited to the National Men’s Summer U18 Selection Camp, slated for July 30-Aug. 2 in Calgary. Olsen is attempting to crack the Canadian roster for the 2011 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament, scheduled for Aug. 8-13 in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound centre earned the opportunity with his play for Team Pacific at the World U17 Challenge back in December, as well as with the Blades over the final half of the season. “It was something I was thinking about for sure,” said the South Delta Minor Hockey alumni. “I know there is going to be a lot of depth at the camp and I am hoping I can show them that I can bring some energy and the ability to grind it out.” Olsen has had little time to catch his breath since returning home and finishing off his Grade 11 year at South Delta secondary school. He had already launched a demanding strength and conditioning program with Ian Gallagher and now is back on the ice for skill sessions with Yogi Svejkovsky. Olsen suggests he is a more complete player after having served a different role last season for the first time in his hockey

career. Having seen nothing but top end ice time and regular duty on the first unit power play right through major midget, he was used mostly as a fourth line centre for the Blades as he made the adjustment to the major junior level. He finished with 14 points, including seven goals, in 63 regular season games. Saskatoon advanced to the second round of the playoffs before being bounced by eventual WHL champion Kootenay Ice. “I certainly didn’t get the kind of playing time I’m used to but it was still a good experience,” he said. “I did move up to the second line when there was an injury and the coaching staff was great.” Olsen has much greater expectations for the season ahead which ultimately could be his draft year. “My goal is to definitely be on one of the top two lines and be one of their go-to-guys,” added. “Next year is big year for me and that’s what I’m working hard towards.” And it all starts in a few weeks in Calgary. Icing... Also having to get jump on his summer training is Tsawwassen’s Brendan Gallagher who has been invited to the National Junior Team Development Camp for the second straight year. The Vancouver Giants sniper will be among 46 prospects in Edmonton — Aug. 3-7. The 19-year-old Montreal Canadiens draft pick is coming off a career best season, including 44 goals. Last year, Gallagher advanced to the final selection camp in December before being released.

The Ladner Cubs played their best baseball of the season when it mattered the most to win the Midget AA League championship. The Cubs were part of an 18-team regional league that featured entries from Sechelt to White Rock. They enjoyed a solid regular season to earn the fourth seed heading into the playoffs. They scraped together a couple of wins to earn a semi-final date with the most experienced and talent-loaded team in the league — the Cloverdale Hitmen. After falling behind early, the Cubs settled down and played solid. In the fourth, the bats came alive with hits from Luke Smith, Adam Enns, Benny Laird, Charles Duhamel, Nathan Mah and Reece Griffing — resulting in six runs. Ladner was able to nurse a two-run lead the rest of the way despite Cloverdale having its opportunities. Catcher Mitch Marentette ended a bases load threat in the sixth when he picked off a runner at third base. In the seventh, with runners on

Ladner second and third, a sharply hit fly ball to centre field was snagged by Connor Smith with his bare hand to end the game. A textbook catch it was certainly not, but as a player quipped “the guys from Youtube” should have been here to film that.” The victory secured a trip to the Sunshine Coast to face Sechelt at Ryan Dempster — named after the hometown Major League star pitcher with the Chicago Cubs. On this day the Cubs affiliation seemed to be stronger with Ladner than with the host team. With the exception of the first when Enns threw out a runner at home from center field to end the inning, the pitching of Marentette and

Cubs Luke Smith allowed Sechelt minimal scoring opportunities. A gutsy two strike bunt by Zach Hughes and alert base running by Tim Main and Enns provided the only two runs of the game and allowed the Cubs to claim victory. For third year players Eric Neville, Marentette, Luke Smith, Nathan Mah, Adam Enns and Matt Baker it was a perfect conclusion to their final spring season as members of the Ladner Minor Baseball. The Cubs roster also features: Zach Hughes, Brendan Mah, Tim Main, Arjun Bains and Alex Duhamel. The coaches are Doug Griffing and Jeff Enns.

When the sun comes out you’ll have the ultimate spot to enjoy it. The upper deck is over 800 sq ft and faces south, or perhaps you’d rather enjoy the quiet oasis of the private back deck off the kitchen. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and over 2000 sq ft make this a comfortable home to live in. The family room on the main level has a 3 piece bathroom and could easily be a master bedroom or perhaps a great guest room. This is a bright, very clean well cared for home on a large lot. The furnace was new at the end of 2009 and the main bathroom on the upper level has been beautifully renovated. There is a wood burning fireplace in the formal living room and a gas fireplace in the family room. With ample storage space, a shed in the backyard and a workbench in the garage, you’re all set to take on any project. 6 parking spots will give you room to park an RV for all those visiting relatives. Pop by on Sunday for more information or call for an appointment, it’s a pleasure to show this lovely home.

Cancer June 21-July 22: It’s a jumbled week, careening between great luck and unexpected rebuffs. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are at a yearly high, so you can easily handle all this. Your career or ambitions demand behind-scenes agreements or research (or government liaisons) all month. Midweek (especially Wednesday) you could find just the right data or “note” to bring about co-operation from another. But forget about co-operation Thursday/Friday. Your career, VIPs and parents act unpredictably now to 2019, favouring you Monday, impeding you Thursday. Ah, well. Romance Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and recuperate. Contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, deal with government agencies. All these bring peace, affection and good fortune. Your hopes rise all July about a legal, educational, international, cultural/ social or love matter. Good, but be “mild” in this – if you push it or depend on it too heavily, you could weave a subtle trap for yourself (or simply face disappointment) especially around July 22. Despite your weariness, social matters arise, and you find a new talkativeness, humour – good! Be cheerful but cautious in dealing with a boss Tuesday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes rise, as fun, flirtations, entertainment, popularity and social delights flow around you! You’ll meet (now and for 15 years) fascinating, alluring, elusive and puzzling people. You can let this drive you to distraction, or you can fall in love – “perfect partners” are here! But don’t fall for an alcoholic, drug addict, hopeless dreamer, con artist, porn star or anyone with OCD. These types are easy to spot. (And a con artist will find you invulnerable if you’re – paradoxically – unselfish.) All July, don’t get steamed about, pushy in, nor invest in, your career.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on home, family, real estate, security, garden, nutrition – and ending stale situations. This whole area flows sweetly, even luckily, most of July. One of the situations you end might be a relationship that you once felt defined your life. Despite all this “down home” and “ending” stuff, the weeks ahead are unexpectedly romantic – but the romance is casual, friendly rather than explosive. (The eleven months ahead bring easy sensual links.) Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Relationships bloom with significance Wednesday night to Friday: one ends, one starts? Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on communications, errands, paperwork, reports, news, details, casual acquaintances, siblings and “everyday busyness.” Money flows swiftly to you and away from you all month – be smart, bank it; avoid spending or you could end up poorer. A major (wrong) temptation to spend could occur around July 20-24 – careful! For 14 months (Aug. 30, 2012) investing, paying down debt, dealing with “net worth” is a lot luckier than spending – think “us,” not “me.” Home-related discussions fill July – they’re a road to future pleasure! Downplay differences Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The main accent’s on money, possessions, sensual attraction, memory, rote learning and surface appearances. These flow quite luckily all July (especially Monday morning) but run into some surprises and barriers Thursday/ Friday – avoid shopping these two days. Especially avoid high-tech stuff, don’t finalize investments, and DON’T push for sensual/sexual intimacy. You feel more active, restless, curious, communicative this month – a short trip (or two) could take you to friends, to optimism and hope – go! Romance appeals but isn’t easy Wednesday night to Friday. Step cautiously.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be ambitious. Your career and prestige relations are blessed with graciousness and good luck all July. This week is packed with planetary aspects both good and obstructive; most of these operate in communications, daily events, and other “light” zones. In a broad way, Sunday/ Monday are easy, Thursday/Friday are difficult (a career choice) and the rest are mixed. Take care with legal, international and educational matters: these grow intense all month, and are double-edged. You could find great agreement, or trip on angry hassles. A light touch works best. Popularity grows! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The emphasis lies on discovery of reasons, of the “why” – and on international travel, love, cultural rituals, society’s raison d’etre, education, publishing, law, abstract thought. It’s a gentle, peaceful time – though this week has so many jumbled and surprising events that the peace might only be within you. I mentioned love – that’s a big theme for the fifteen years ahead. One of your favourite signs, Cancer, is in true love territory, also – and might approach you Saturday. Popularity, hope fill Tuesday/Wednesday. Lie low Thursday/Friday. You shine with charisma Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Mysteries arise all week, but in most instances these are light or social mysteries, such as a phone number w/o a memory, gossip, a “why’d he do that?” A more significant wonder – or choice – might arise Friday/ Saturday, about money, an investment, inheritance, or a spiritual, health or government situation. If you’re not sure what action to take these two days, just stand back and observe: plans will form soon. Earlier, Sunday/Monday are gentle, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday. Hope arrives, Thursday. All July, relationships intensify: love’s good, fighting’s hard.

(You can pick up your Jiaw now.) When you can’t bank on the banks.

July 3 - 9, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on relationships, relocation, opportunities, opposition, contracts, negotiations, and dealing with the public. This week is jumbled; misunderstandings can arise. Still, others treat you with affection and grace. Be sure to return the favour Friday, when you might be a little self-involved or stubborn. Ferret out secrets Sunday/Monday – you’ll like what you learn. Wisdom, understanding, gentle love visit midweek. Avoid arguments Tuesday morning. Be ambitious Thursday, but realize unpredictable elements at home might undermine career ”timing.” Hopes soar Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week – but practise safety. Your romantic courage grows all July. This might spur you to approach someone Sunday/Monday or Wednesday night to Friday. Go, have fun, but accept that experience is its own reward. Success could come, initially, in the pursuit of intimacy (or investments) Monday-Wednesday, but make sure all ethical or legal factors are in place. Ultimately, you might decide this week was better spent on work! A deep insight, secret, ally – or help from an agency – can bring splendid luck on real estate or family fronts. Be ambitious Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance fills this week, and some stunning moments can a) bring a locking of eyes that amazes you, or b) a certainty that true love exists or c) both. But true love’s course doesn’t run smoothly this week, so be prepared to jump between intrigue/elation and frustration. By Friday, you’ll experience a deep, subtle knowledge that love is either dawning, or is, in this case, part of the past’s trash pile. All July, beware your temper, especially at home. A friend’s words could point to wish fulfillment midweek! Saturday’s gentle, wise. Don’t move into a new home before Aug. 3. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
