One flattened and another on the clock Pieces of Delta’s heritage lost forever BY

The clock ran out for one heritage farm home Monday while the clock is ticking on another just down the road. This week a demolition crew tore down the Friesen residence at 6721 Ladner Trunk Rd. Late last year Delta council approved a demolition permit, but told the owner to first offer the home for sale for 30 days for $1 to anyone interested in buying and moving it. Located on a 17.8hectare (44-acre) property in the Agricultural Land Reserve, the home, believed to have been built sometime in the early 1920s, had turned into an eyesore. A staff report last year noted a heritage assessment completed 12 years earlier found the house in “general disrepair” and the condition had deteriorated significantly since then. Coun. Anne Peterson, a member of the Delta Heritage

Advisory Commission, at the time said it was a clear case of “demolition by neglect.” Incentives or some other means should be available for owners to repair and maintain heritage buildings, she said. Earlier this month, council voted to give temporary protection, requested by the heritage commission, for the Kittson residence at 9230 Ladner Trunk Rd. This summer the municipality received a demolition application for the farmhouse and barn on the property. Delta pioneer Robert Kittson built the barn in 1895 and the house in 1907. The house is listed as having a high heritage value and is on Delta’s heritage inventory, but not on a heritage registry that provides greater protection. The house is on a 40-acre ALR parcel. John van Dongen sold it to new owners who are planning to build greenhouses on the property. See HERITAGE page 3 PHOTOS BY

Delta rids itself of property that’s an environmental nightmare BY

Delta has rid itself of a costly headache by finally finding someone willing to take the contaminated Delta Shake and Shingle site off its hands. Delta council approved a transfer agreement this week with

Ocean Trailer to sell the former demolition landfill property for a dollar. “We are not responsible for mitigation and we don’t want to mitigate. We didn’t want that place in the first place,” an elated Mayor Lois Jackson told the Optimist this week. A large area of the old landfill

was acquired by Delta through a tax default following a major fire over a decade ago. Delta owns two of the three parcels that make up the site located adjacent to where the South Fraser Perimeter Road is being constructed. “The closure and re-development of the former Delta Shake and Shingle site is a challeng-

ing, long-term proposition that involves a considerable financial commitment as well as the assumption of various environmental risks and liabilities,” a report to council states. Delta has tried to sell the property before, including an offer for sale in 2002 that produced no results.

DSS students left without project

Carpentry class in need of work BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

The Grade 12 carpentry class at Delta Secondary is on the lookout for a project. Every year, the class takes on a project, usually a cabin or similar structure. Students work on the frame at the school throughout the year and then in the spring disassemble the structure and move it to its permanent location before reassembling and finishing the frame. Other trades are then brought in to install any plumbing and electrical elements, and add any finishing touches. Teacher Wayne McKinnon said he had a project all lined up for this year’s class but the owner had to back out at the last minute. He is now scrambling to find a new project for his students. Usually the class tackles an out-of-town, vacationtype property. For more information, call Wayne McKinnon at Delta Secondary at 604946-4194 or 604-617-7659.

The underground fire was fully extinguished at a cost of more than $4 million. The owner was eventually fined $75,000 in provincial court.

The extinguished material was placed back into the landfill in a fire-proof manner, but, according to the report, at its current state the landfilled areas have negative or, at best, negligible value. The closure costs for the entire site are estimated to be $7.5 million, not including the post-closure monitoring costs as well as the costs of discharging leachate. “You have to appreciate that on paper, the assessed value may be $7 million, but we are told it’s cost at least $7 million to bring it back,” said Jackson “It’s a huge undertaking, so we’re giving them (Ocean Trailer) a break on DCCs (development cost charges), we’re giving them a break for five years on taxation to be held at a certain level. This is an investment for Delta’s future, “ Jackson said. Ocean Trailer, a Coquitlam-based trailer and container business that has

an adjacent facility on River Road, will assume responsibility for the closure of the municipally-owned parcels. The company plans to use the site for open storage. Jackson said the company would also relocate to Delta and build a new head office. The Delta Shake and Shingle site was in the news a couple of years ago when the municipality pitched it as a potential home for a new Lower Mainland remand centre. The province announced the jail would be located in Surrey, prompting Delta to look at other options, including selling it to private interests. Meantime, Delta is asking the province to review its remediation regulations to encourage the private owner of the third parcel of the site to also take steps to clean up the property. All the demolition landfills on River Road are now closed.

Spotlight shines on pedestrian safety

After two collisions last week, including one fatal, Ladner residents share their experiences while on foot BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Concerns are being raised about road safety around Ladner in the wake of two pedestrian crashes last week, one that ended fatally. Emergency responders were called out to two collisions involving pedestrians last Tuesday morning. The crashes happened at virtually the same time at intersections about a kilometre apart. The first call came in at 8:32 a.m. after a 13-yearold girl was struck at the crosswalk at 55B Street and Ladner Trunk Road. Delta police spokesperson A/Sgt. Paul Eisenzimmer said the girl was transported to Children’s Hospital to be treated for head injuries. The second call came in just one minute later after a 53-year-old woman was hit as she crossed Ladner Trunk Road at Elliott Street. She was transported to Vancouver General Hospital with head injuries. Initially, reports indicated the woman was in stable condition but she later died

from her injuries. Both incidents are still under investigation. The crashes have prompted concerns in the community around pedestrian safety. Carrie Beisick still remembers the day she was hit in the crosswalk at Westminster Avenue and Linden Drive. It was April 2010 PHOTO BY JESSICA KERR: and she was out A bouquet of flowers and a note were left at the corner of Ladner Trunk Road and Elliott Street in memory of walking with the 53-year-old woman who died after being hit by a car while crossing the street last Tuesday morning. her 10-year-old daughter and the lights and traffic stopped in gery and doctors at B.C. the way.

Earlier this month, with the school year beginning Delta police issued a road safety reminder, including tips for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists. Delta police spokesperson Sgt. Sharlene Brooks emphasized that it is important for pedestrians to make eye contact with drivers and wait for vehicles to come to a stop before stepping off the curb. “Likewise, drivers must be attentive to the crosswalks and scan for pedestrians in the area,” she said. “Be a defensive driver. Anticipate the unexpected.”

Alpha Aviation president Lynda Hogarth told a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday she’d like to see Boundary Bay Airport become Western Canada’s industrial airport of choice.

The new 80th Street overpass will be a big help to business at the Boundary Bay Airport, says Delta Mayor Lois Jackson. “Once completed, the overpass will ensure unimpeded access to the airport and will be a boon to the development of the airport’s industrial land as well as local farmers and aircraft operators,” she said at a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon held at the airport Wednesday. The overpass, needed because of the increasing frequency and length of trains to and from Deltaport, will be finished on time and on budget prior to June 2012, she noted. Delta has also improved secondary access to the airport by repaving 72nd Street and installing a full traffic signal at the intersection of 72nd and Ladner Trunk Road, Jackson said. The mayor noted an advanced warning system will also be implemented on Ladner Trunk Road to divert drivers to 80th Street in the event of a train blocking 72nd Street.

Delta is also working on a master servicing plan for the airport, Jackson said, adding the focus of the plan is to ensure developable industrial lands at the airport are pre-serviced and ready for business. Delta council has approved approximately $2.9 million to undertake phase one of the plan, she said, noting the municipality will need to recoup that cost from future tenants. Alpha Aviation president Lynda Hogarth also spoke at the luncheon. Alpha leases and operates the municipally-owned airport. “We’re making great progress going forward,” she said. She said since Delta extended its lease to Alpha until 2099 earlier this year there’s been a lot more interest in the airport in terms of industrial development. Alpha has also recently entered a fuel agreement with Air BP and introduced a new card lock system, which allows fuel to be offered at lower prices. “We would like to become Western Canada’s industrial airport of choice,” Hogarth said.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW For all the hot air and newsprint expended on the Southlands over the last few years, precious little debate about the Century Group’s plans has actually taken place in an official setting. That’s something Sean Hodgins wants to rectify. The developer has hosted many meetings where his vision has been discussed in detail, but whenever the issue moves into the civic realm, whether that’s during area plan sessions or even the public hearing on returning the property to the Agricultural Land Reserve, the talk turns general. Hodgins’ proposal is often referred to as the elephant in the room because speakers are told not to broach the subject, instructed instead to confine their comments to the wider issue of land use. Not surprisingly, the Century president was looking for some assurances from civic politicians Monday night that the public would actually be given an opportunity to have its say on his latest proposal. It should be noted it was municipal officials that invited Hodgins to submit a revised proposal, so it would be unfair to characterize them as unwilling to entertain the idea of Southlands development. However, up until that point it looked like they were auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance by the way they deftly sidestepped the issue. Hodgins has spent a lot of time and money, much more than any developer I can recall, devising a project he, and many others, believe adds something to the community. He has consulted with the public countless times and in a variety of ways, attracting a sizable number of supporters along the way. To be fair, the plan still has its fair share of critics as well. Maybe people will buy the result, pleased with the housing variety and the 400 acres turned over to public ownership. Maybe they won’t, turned off by the idea of more congestion or the use of agriculturally zoned land for anything but farming. Whatever the case, it’s well past the time for public input. There are a lot of people with a lot to say, so there’s not much point carrying on in the shadows, pretending the Century plan doesn’t exist. I recognize that any public meeting or hearing convened by Delta will, to put it mildly, draw a crowd and is bound to get a little testy. It’s also guaranteed not to reach a consensus, so dipping your toes in that pool is fraught with problems. So while I understand the reluctance to wade into the water, the time has come to finally give the public its turn.

Survey the homefront prior to voicing quality of life worries MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT People like to talk about “quality of life.” I am still trying to understand what that means exactly. Under what terms of reference could one describe such a phrase? I suppose shelter, access to fresh food, stable governance and adequate social programs would be a few of the items on the checklist. We should, I think, take a moment to look at the “quality of life” of the children in our communities. In the instance of youngsters, maybe the quality of life is too good? Large screen TVs and Xboxes seem to be having a negative affect on our youth. So are some retail offerings. Maybe I haven’t been paying attention lately, but I recall seeing Halloween treats in store displays at the end of September or thereabouts. Halloween is big business and the good folks at Nestle and Cadbury know that we will buy

those cute little snacks and that many bags will be devoured well before the big night. This year, at least one large grocery chain has been offering the candy in prominent displays during the first week of classes. Only now, it is not called Halloween candy like in the olden days. In this newly improved and sugar coated September, the little chocolate bars are called “back to school fun treats.” Presumably we throw a few of these in our kids lunch box to ease our guilt of not being around to look after them or something. At harvest time, a real back to school fun treat used to be called a Macintosh apple or a peach or a nectarine. Good ol’ days fondly remembered by an old geezer? Perhaps, but the point is that if we took a couple of seconds to make a good purchasing decision things could get better for everyone. Our premier was in town again a couple of weeks ago to announce $8 million for playgrounds in British Columbia. Some skeptics here think the money is not well spent considering budgetary constraints and some have said the money should go to the bargaining table of the BCTF. As Clark noted in her address,

playgrounds provide an important opportunity for kids to be active and develop social skills. Playgrounds should be neighbourhood focal points, places to ride or walk to on school days, weekends and holidays. If you can believe it, there are 44 schools in our province that do not have a playground. It is hoped that playgrounds can lead a preemptive strike on diabetes, which, if you haven’t heard, is becoming an epidemic in British Columbia and most of the Western world. One person dies from the disease every seven seconds. Once obesity starts to creep in to the life a young person, type 2 diabetes usually appears later on in life. Canada has over two million cases of diabetes and that number is expected to almost double by 2020. “Back to school fun treats” are expensive. Diabetes costs the British Columbia health system about $1.3 billion annually. An $8 million investment for playgrounds is chump change for the long-term health of future generations. This government program should be appreciated as a smart investment in the quality of life for our children.

Union leaders are out of step with reality Editor: Another year passes, and the apparatchiks of Canada’s major labour unions are still mired in their myopic yearning for an obsolete era of entitlement. I have nothing against unions; my parents and my grandfather were members their whole working lives. I simply do not trust their intransigent leaders who claim to speak for the entire membership. Nor do I believe there is “solidarity” between

all workers. I would surmise that a lot of unemployed industrial workers are resentful towards the greater security enjoyed by public employees. Ken Georgetti, Barry O’Neill and Darryl Walker refuse to present any credible ideas to inoculate Canada against another possible recession in the U.S. They also evince a disdain for self-reliance; every citizen is ultimately responsible for his own financial security, not the state. Karl Marx said, “Political

power... is merely the organized power of one class for oppressing another.” Communism failed to abolish all economic strata as the commissars formed a new bourgeoisie, enjoying modern luxuries as their fellow proletarians starved. Do Georgetti, O’Neill and Walker realize the irony of their positions in the union? Perhaps they should return to their real professions before they become corrupted like those greedy corporate executives. Steven Austin

MLA’S REPORT Electricity forms the backbone of modern society, though it’s not something most of us think about until the power goes out or it’s time to pay the hydro bill. However, there have been some important developments within B.C.’s energy sector and I wanted to share my perspective. The B.C. government recently released a review of B.C. Hydro’s operations and capital spending plans. Conducted by senior civil servants, it followed Hydro’s request to increase rates by 30 per cent over three years. This increase interfered with the new “families first” agenda and it didn’t look good going into a possible election. The review found the excuse needed to reduce the increases from 30 to 16 per cent: B.C. Hydro was overstaffed, inefficient and overpaid. The government was happy. But the far more important findings were hidden in comments sprinkled throughout the review: recent changes to government policies were the

Victoria’s energy policy packs powerful impact

single biggest reason for the increased rates. The effects of this policy are clear. The review notes, “In Fiscal 2010, IPPs produced 16 per cent of total domestic electricity requirements; however IPP electricity costs represented 49 per cent of the overall domestic energy cost.” A bit of history helps. In 2002, the Campbell government’s first energy plan made several major policy changes. One important change made the private sector (independent power producers or IPPs) responsible for developing new electricity generation. B.C. Hydro was limited to upgrades at existing plants. In 2007, the government updated the plan. It called for B.C. to be self-sufficient in electricity generation by 2016. B.C. Hydro could no longer import electricity to cover shortfalls, even when advantageous to do so. It would have to build or acquire more generating capacity than actually needed during normal water level years. In 2010, the government passed the Clean

Energy Act. This legislation stripped away independent oversight of electricity planning decisions by the B.C. Utilities Commission. It placed the power within cabinet, and by extension the Premier’s Office. I felt this was an abuse of power. While a policy to generate revenues from electricity sales is laudable, I voted against it. In my response to the bill I said: “A radical policy shift is in the works, and the people of B.C. had better get ready to start paying for it. The policy shift represented by this act affects every individual in the province and defines an energy plan that changes the very nature of our public utility, that serves to privatize our common resources and that impacts the very essence of our physical environment. “Yes, it will likely make us self-sufficient, and yes, it will provide power for export, but at what cost? Is it a cost we should be paying?” These changes together mean B.C. Hydro is paying for entrepreneurial risk and must guarantee profits for

For That Special Someone

the private sector. These are assured through long-term contracts worth more than $50 billion. Not my kind of free enterprise. To ensure private sector profitability, Victoria is willing to bankrupt B.C. Hydro and drain ratepayers. It further admitted, “The policy of self-sufficiency... amounts to a significant planning constraint affecting B.C. Hydro’s ability to offer cost effective energy solutions. The financial burden of meeting this government direction will be passed on to current and future ratepayers, in the form of rate increases.” I can think of many better uses for hundreds of millions of dollars every year. I urge the government to remove the requirements for “self-sufficiency” by 2016, a date that B.C. Hydro cannot meet without huge cost and without significantly burdening the ratepayer. Encouraging independent power production is one thing, but jeopardizing the future of our most important public utility is not good government policy.

My “Aunt A” runs a B&B — not for profit, you understand — but for friends and family. Her little green “rancher” that sits across the road from the golden prairie wheat fields on the outskirts of Winnipeg hosts folk from around the world. This summer alone there were visitors from Italy, Switzerland, the B.C. coast and even a family of five from El Salvador. I am always truly amazed as I hear of people coming and going and always finding a safe and comfortable bed and yummy food at her “Foxgrove Avenue” home. But this year has been different — at least in some ways. My “Aunt A” has cancer and is, at 85 years of age, struggling with some heavy-

duty medical treatments. But her door is still open. This year, whether we want to, or not, we will have to find a new way of being guests in her house. She’s no longer able to go down into the basement to raid the freezer, nor can she fix the laundry because the “walker” won’t go there. So, while we grieve for her loss, and ours, we are also learning that we can share the responsibilities of being together. Since her heart is so generous and loving, we will be able to share her gift of hospitality and, as the Apostle Paul wrote: we will “be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer ... [and will always] practice hospitality.” (Romans 12:12-13)

In the last article, I started sharing about happiness and that God has paid for it. We established that happiness is not a state of being; rather, it is a state of mind. A person can be happy when everyone and everything around them is in complete turmoil. True happiness and contentment is not dependent upon our circumstances. Therefore, we asked the question, “How do we acquire happiness?” And, we established the first step towards being happy. We need to deal with what’s on the inside.

Most people today take a different approach and only deal with what’s on the outside. They focus on praying for no problems in their lives. However, the Bible says: “As long as we are in this world, we will have problems”. (John 16:33) If you never bump into the devil, it’s because you’re going in the same direction. When you turn around and start swimming upstream, you will always encounter resistance. You cannot always control what goes on outside, but you can totally control what goes on inside when faced with that resistance. Understanding this, you will be on your way to eliminating grief in your life. Secondly, one of the most liberating things in the world is to love someone else more than your self. When the one you love more is God, you will rejoice when He is glorified, even if that happens through your suffering. In the Bible, Paul said that all his suffering had furthered the kingdom of God. In Philippians 1:12-14 we find that Paul loved God and the furtherance of His kingdom more than he loved himself. What a great attitude! We would do well to adopt it. If you are all wrapped up in yourself, you make a very small package. And, therein lays the number one obstacle to contentment and happiness. Most people are addicted to self - like addicts are to drugs. They are never satisfied. This self-centered dissatisfaction is Satan’s greatest open door for temptation. He used self-interest to tempt Adam and Eve, even though they lived

in a perfect world without a single problem. “4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Gen. 3:4-5) The devil tempted Eve with being dissatisfied with what they already had. Even Jesus’ disciples weren’t satisfied with Him. “8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” (John 14:8) We can never truly satisfy self - We just have to deny it. We have to die to self and place God and others ahead of self. The third step is knowing that God loves us and understanding His love. God is a good God! He isn’t mad at us. He not only loves us, He likes us! He will never leave us nor forsake us, no matter how badly we mess up. His mercies are new every morning! Our sin does not affect His opinion of us, nor does it cause Him to withhold His blessing. Great is His faithfulness! These are very radical statements! Just think about the typical Christian teaching concerning God today. Usually, God is represented as stern and angry, ready to get us for. This is wrong, and it leads to wrong conclusions and attitudes toward God that hinder an intimate relationship with Him. So, why is the Lord represented so harshly? The answer can be found in the lack of understanding of the harmony between the Old and New Testament. In the Old Testament, the Lord vented His anger and judgment often, and in devastating ways. There was Noah’s flood; the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah; a death angel sent to kill all the firstborn of Egypt in one night; and on and on the list goes. There is no doubt our God is a holy God who hates sin and demands justice. However, in the New Testament, there is also the image of God that Jesus painted through His teachings and actions. He showed mercy to the worst of sinners, associated with harlots, loved the unlovely, and His ultimate action of dying

for our sins proved beyond any doubt that He came to save the world, not condemn it. How does this fit in with the Old Testament view of the harshness and severity of God? Is God schizophrenic? Does He sometimes love us and other times hate us? How can we have a healthy relationship with someone who changes His moods frequently? These questions present a dilemma that has kept many people at arm’s length from the Lord. The vast majority of people KNOW there is a God; they just don’t know how to relate to Him. They are confused because many times the only answer they get to these questions is “don’t ask questions –God is sovereign and who are you to question him.” A minister will say that it was the Lord, in His sovereignty, who killed a baby; and in the next breath, will ask if anyone wants to serve this GOOD GOD. We are told that God won’t answer the prayers of anyone in sin, and yet we are told that we all have sinned. Where does that leave us? Without a prayer! There is a simple answer to these questions, and a harmony between the wrath and mercy of God. God is not schizophrenic. There is one, true nature of God clearly represented in the Word, and that is LOVE! 1 John 4:8 says,“God is love.” He does not just love at times - Love is the nature of God! Jesus gave us the greatest representation of the true nature of God ever presented. God placed our sins on Jesus and punished Him in our place. God satisfied His own demands for justice, not by punishing us, but by punishing His Son in our place. This wasn’t a partial payment which required adding our holiness; it was a total payment that leaves us with nothing to do except believe and receive, or doubt and do without. In the next article, I will continue to expand on the Goodness of God. www.pneumachurch.com

The Lloyd Shea Trophy was returned to the Ladner Lawn Bowling Club after a hard won battle in Ladner last Saturday. Ladner club president Barbara Sutton (left) is shown being presented the trophy by Tsawwassen president Mary Hargreaves. The trophy is a local prestigious honour as it represents a long-standing friendly rivalry between the two bowling clubs. The trophy was donated in 1996 by a member who belonged to both clubs. Tsawwassen has won it twice and Ladner four times. It symbolizes the strong community spirit that is protected and nurtured by both clubs.

Tele-workshop to discuss Driving and Dementia

Healing from cancer 3/.-1 -14 021By Andrea Debruin On May 12, 2010 during an ultrasound check-up at Children’s Hospital, a technician found something abnormal in Sophie Rosenberger’s kidney. “We were really lucky that the Wilm’s tumor was detected early by accident”, says Chris Rosenberger — Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley Rider. “My wife Katie and I were told, ‘you need to go see oncology’, which was met by stunned silence, so the radiologist had to clarify that we knew what oncology was and unfortunately we both did.” Sophie went for surgery four days later… but that’s last year’s story. Today three-year-old Sophie is enrolled in pre-school and swimming lessons. Chris describes his daughter as a happy and healthy girl with a big head of thick curly hair. Chris, a Border Services Officer, is cycling 800 km between Tsawwassen and Boston Bar to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research. “My wife and I were at a point where we were looking for something we could do to try and fight back, we weren’t at the coping stage anymore, we were both kind of moving into the fight back stage and Cops for Cancer seemed like a really good fit.” The Rosenberger’s also benefitted from family week at Camp Goodtimes, a remarkable camp that provides support for families dealing with cancer. Sophie enjoyed the activities while

Caregivers to get valuable advice

Are you concerned about a family member’s driving abilities? For caregivers of a person with dementia, it’s a serious concern. Fortunately, Delta and South Surrey families can turn to the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. for assistance. The society is presenting a free tele-workshop, Driving and Dementia, on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. Family caregivers will explore some of the issues surrounding driving cessation, including how to identify when driving is no longer safe and how to approach discussions on the subject. The workshop also sugChris and Katie were able to attend group sessions that encouraged families to heal and talk about their experiences with cancer. Chris admits to feeling slightly apprehensive about the physical demands of the Tour — “but when you have something to focus on it makes it a lot easier. I have a very well defined reason for doing what I am doing — I get the reinforcer every time I go home and see my daughter.”

Ultimately, Chris rides to let Sophie and any child with cancer know that, “you are all normal kids, able to be happy and have fun.” He invites the community to cheer on the riders during Tour: September 22 – 30, 2011. Visit www.copsforcancerbc.ca to see how you can join the fight! Ad sponsored by

So far the 2011 event has raised more than $170,000, pushing the total during the event’s 27-year history to $5 million. The Van Tols raised over $2,000. Post-event fundraising continues until Oct. 3, and organizers expect the final tally to reach upwards of $200,000.

Keeping Terry’s vision alive Annual Terry Fox run slated for Sunday morning in Tsawwassen DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

T

he local Terry Fox Run lost one of its big supporters last year and she’ll be remembered before the fundraiser gets rolling on Sunday in Tsawwassen. Samantha Mattersdorfer, 19, who passed away last November, raised over $80,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation while fighting her own battle against cancer. There will be a connection and a focus on Mattersdorfer at Sunday’s event, says Rotary Club of Tsawwassen member and local run co-chair Gail McEwan. “Actually the reason I’m chairing it is because Samantha and I got to be really good friends a couple of years ago and I sort of journeyed with her the last bit of her life and I did promise her that I’d do this this year,” McEwan says. Mattersdorfer, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma bone cancer when she was 17, underwent a leg amputation and numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. By 18 she was diagnosed with terminal metastatic osteosarcoma and the cancer had

spread to both of her lungs. “There was only the option of using her time to raise awareness and funds for research and that is exactly what Samantha did for the rest of her time on earth,” says Samantha’s mom, Cathy Mattersdorfer, in an e-mail. Terry Fox quickly became a hero to Samantha, says Mattersdorfer, who’s expected to speak at the run on Sunday. “In one late night conversation with a friend, Samantha said that she hoped that when her time came Terry would be there to greet her. There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that on Nov. 9 he was there for her when her battle with cancer ended. Samantha and Terry didn’t just share the same cancer diagnosis. They shared the same drive and determination to do everything they could to find a cure for cancer.” The local Terry Fox Run, which has five-kilometre and 10-kilometre options, is being organized by the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen. It’s a non-competitive event with no entry fees and no minimum pledge amounts. McEwan notes organizers are putting a focus on

John’s, Newfoundland and ran for 143 days, covering over 5,000 kilometres, with an artificial limb. His leg was amputated because of cancer while he was a teenager. Fox had hoped to raise a dollar from each Canadian. He stopped outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The cancer had spread to his lungs and Fox died when he was just 22. The annual

Terry Fox Run was formed to commemorate the Marathon of Hope. The run is set to take place rain or shine on Sunday with the start and finish at Rotary Square at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with the run scheduled to start at 10 a.m. There will be entertainment on site, including a

Student art show A dozen of local artist Lea Price’s students will have work on display in Tsawwassen. The show, titled I to Eyes, runs until Sept. 25 at the Tsawwassen Longhouse Gallery. An opening event will be held on Sunday. Price says she’s proud of her students and that their work for the show turned out fabulously. “Everybody’s very, very different. Everybody’s beginning to get their own style, their own voice. Some of the paintings are very, very personal. Some are very whimsical. Some are landscapes or seascapes where somebody would just want to be.”

Tsawwassen’s Deb Porter is one of Price’s students. She has 15 pieces in the exhibit and they’re all oil paintings. She usually uses board as a canvas. “I start off with a thin wash, and then I wipe it away until I get my senses about me where I want things to go. I let that dry and then I usually paint over it,” she says. She has some local landscape paintings in the show, including a couple of Boundary Bay and Point Roberts. An opening event is set for Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Tsawwassen Longhouse Gallery (adjacent to the South Delta Recreation Centre). Artists will be in attendance and there will be refreshments.

Tulips can sometimes be protected by planting six to eight inches (15 to 20 cm) deep. But crocuses may need a layer of wire on top or planting inside a plastic recycled fruit bag. Daffodils and hyacinths have been developed from plants that make dense masses in temperate, welldrained, shady woodlands. Gardeners who plant them in a similar spot may find they enlarge into big clumps that flower every spring. Planting under tall shrubs or trees with early spring sun but summer shade is a good substitute. But in tougher conditions, it’s the dwarf daffodils and narcissus that return year after year. People who want larger daffodils and narcissus to return annually could try one of the naturalizing mixes. Hyacinths like a similar environment to daffodils

but can handle deeper shade. Many gardeners plant them in pots for late winter bloom indoors. The breeders are trying to move closer to a red hyacinth, but blues, whites, apricot and yellows are by far the most common. After blooming, if fertilized as the leaves begin dying back, they do very well planted outside in shady or semi-shady corners. In later years, their stems get longer and their blooms fewer as they begin revealing their bluebell heritage. The six-inch (15-cm) Iris reticulata is another lover of sun and good drainage. It’s a reliable returner. The deep-plum coloured George and the medium blue Harmony are especially good naturalizers. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

Make sure they make it to class safely. This school year, prepare your kids for the road with a BCAA Student Membership. They’ll be protected with the same Road Assist services as our Basic Membership like towing, changing flat tires, boosting batteries and opening locked doors.

Some bulbs are so popular that once-a-year gardeners consider nothing else when they plan a bright display for spring — and tulips, daffodils, crocus and hyacinths seldom fail to bloom that first year. That’s because embryo flowers are already snuggled deep inside the bulbs waiting for spring temperatures to awaken them. But whether they bloom in the second year depends on how they’ve been looked after and, most importantly, where they were planted. For instance, most tulips and crocuses are native to bright hillsides with freezing winters and bak-

ing summers. They need similar conditions if they are to become perennial. As a result, their planting place should have at least six hours of sun daily and excellent drainage. They need to be fertilized after bloom and then kept absolutely dry once the leaves have died down. Container gardeners can achieve this by having a tulip-crocus only container they move under cover for summer then bring out again when fall rains arrive. Variegated tulips, such as the white-edged leaf of New Design or Praestans Unicum, or the cream-green leaves of the yellow-flowered Garant, are especially precious since they give you spectacular display even before they bloom. Crocus corms need the same conditions as tulips and most also need protection from squirrels that dig and eat the bulbs.

Ladner United U11 Gold girls soccer team got its season off to a tremendous start by capturing the Selects Division at the annual Ladner FC Labour Day Tournament. United faced a tough test right out of the gate against the Surdel Elite Strikers — considered the top ranked team in the SDGA U11 Select League. Surdel would eventually squeak out a 10 win when it took advantage of a Ladner player falling to find the back of the net in the final five minutes. United got back on track with a 3-1 win over a Surrey select team. The girls moved onto the semi-finals where they defeated another Surdel team 1-0 to set-up a rematch of their opening game. This time, Ladner came out firing as a terrific run down the sideline by Hannah Hansen was concluded with her rifling home a well-placed shot. The Strikers changed their formation

Rest in peace Johnny!

Levagood, Laura Merle July 8, 1925 - Sept 3, 2011

It is with much sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Laura Merle Levagood, age 86, on September 3rd, 2011 at Delta Hospital, after a seven month struggle with cancer. Born July 8th, 1925 in Manitou, Manitoba. She was the youngest daughter of William and Laura Manning of Darlingford, Manitoba. Merle had two sisters, Alva and Ella, and three brothers Clayton, Wray and Delbert. All her family had predeceased her. Merle had a happy, small town childhood in Darlingford. She always had lots of friends, sang in the church choir, and enjoying skating at the local community centre. After graduation from high school, Merle moved to Calgary where she worked for McDonalds Consolidated. There she met and worked with Marion Levagood, soon to be her sister-in-law. Merle met Glenn Levagood in Calgary in 1946. They were married in Calgary on February 8th, 1947. Soon after, they moved to Camrose Alberta, where Glenn began his 50 year career with Sun Life. Moving with this new family was Mrs. Laura Manning Sr., who lived with the family for eleven years, until she passed away in 1958. Pamela Jean Levagood was born in Camrose, Alberta on February 16th, 1951. Cynthia Louise Levagood was born in Edmonton, Alberta on July 23rd, 1959. Merle had a zest for life! She loved to cook and entertain. Everyone was always welcome at the Levagood home. She played an active role in the community, volunteering at Ronald McDonald House and the Misericordia Hospital for decades. Merle loved curling at the Hillcrest Country Club, quilting with her quilting group, playing cards, knitting afghans and boy did she know her sports trivia. She and Glenn were avid Edmonton Eskimos and Edmonton Oilers fans, having season’s tickets for decades. After Glenn’s passing on September 2nd, 2001 in Edmonton, Merle moved to Tsawwassen, BC. in 2007 to be closer to her girls. There she lived at the Waterford Seniors Residence where she made many, dear friends, enjoyed playing bridge, attending happy hour, (especially when Elvis was entertaining!) and had many daily laughs. Merle is survived by Pam and Moray Keith of Tsawwassen, BC, and Cindy Levagood and David Dupont of Fairmont Hot Springs BC. Much joy in Merle’s life was attributed to her grandchildren, Greg Keith and Courtney Keith of Vancouver BC. Years of dance recitals’, hockey games, Nan’s baking and Nana’s love was special to them, and shall be greatly missed. Fairmont Hot Springs, Mountainside Villas played a big part in Merle and Glenn’s life. The family has enjoyed 30 summers there, with lots of friends, and many good times. A Celebration of her life will be held at Beach Grove Golf Course, 5946 - 12th Avenue, Tsawwassen, BC, on Wednesday, September 21st, 2011, from 1 to 3 pm. To make this joyous celebration even more fun, the family requests you bring photos of Merle for them to keep. Please explain on the back who is in the photo and the occasion. Write down a funny or memorable story and bring it with you. The girls are preparing a book in memory of her life and these photos and stories will all be included. Merle’s favourite colour was pink. You are asked to wear something pink on the 21st to celebrate her zest for a life well lived! In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to ICAN, Invermere Companion Animal Network, the Delta Hospital Foundation, or the charity of your choice.

As per Jeff and his brothers and sister, Norm, Murray & Lynne of New Zealand, Jeffs ashes will be sprinkled at Ladner’s Wellington Point Park on September 17th, 2011 at 2:00pm.

Edgar, Bernice June 7, 1923 - Sept 8, 2011 We sadly announce the passing of our mother, and grandmother, lovingly remembered by daughters Jane (Rick), Darcy (John), and Catherine (Robert), and her grandchildren Andrew, Sally, Madeline, Daniel, and Matthew. She was predeceased by her sister Rosemary and is survived by her brother Richard and his wife Jean. Bernice was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to parents Harry and Marie, and attended classes at the Winnipeg School of Art. She loved art, gardening, and humour. She met Gordon while working at Canada West Grain, and they married on September 15, 1945. Later, Bernice worked in the library in the chemical engineering department of Abitibi in Sault Ste Marie. Once their children arrived, Bernice kept house and home as they moved to Wawa, Ontario, then Taconite Harbour in Minnesota, and then to Sept-Iles, Quebec. Her greatest gifts to her children were her boundless curiosity and love for art and history. The family enjoyed many wonderful camping trips on the eastern seaboard, Cape Cod, and the lobster festival at Rockport, Maine, and went to many, many beaches. While in Quebec, Bernice taught art at Queen Elizabeth High School. In 1969, she and Gordon came to Vancouver where she enjoyed gardening in the temperate climate. Bernice and Gordon enjoyed sailing on the Samurai, Encore, and Kanaloa, from Vancouver to Desolation Sound. Together they were charter members of the Tsawwassen Yacht Club. Bernice was also a member of the South Delta Artists Guild, became an active member of the Canadian Federation of Artists in 1988, and belonged to Beta Sigma Phi. After Gordon's retirement in 1984, Bernice and Gordon enjoyed many travels to Scotland, Greece, Egypt, Italy, and Australia. Although her eyesight suffered with age, Bernice continued to be well informed, and interested in all things. Thank you so much to Classic Caregivers for their kindness and skill, especially Mindy, Susan, Carmen and Marla. A small gathering of family, friends, sorority sisters, and neighbours will be held next week. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A lot of work remains, but by Thursday night it will all be over – a little lingering bit, but mostly over – and a major month of relationships, new horizons, agreements, negotiations – and opposition – begins. Be careful Sunday – someone does not agree with you at all, whether they show it or not. (Or, someone does agree with you, even wants you as a partner, but his/her “home concerns” will kibosh it.) You’re busy. Six weeks of home-related anger/intensity ends; six weeks of romantic or creative urges begins. But settle into home midweek: heal, rest. Romance is real, later! Taurus April 20-May 20: It’s your last week of romance, adventure, creativity, life’s beauty, risk and speculation. Be careful Sunday: do nothing unethical or unwise, in love or anywhere. Don’t listen to someone who urges you on. This night also begins six weeks of potential domestic strife. Direct your energy into repairs, studies, research, government dealings, rather than squabble. (If you start these after supper Thursday, all will be well home-wise for the duration!) Otherwise, Sunday to dawn Tuesday is splendid for chasing money. Midweek’s for travel, communication, paperwork, reading, details. Gemini May 21-June 20: You’re still bound to home, children through Thursday. Use these days to garden, repair, contemplate and soak up nature.You’ll feel restless, as a six-week period of speedy travel, communications and casual friendships begins now. Your magnetism glows Sunday/Monday, but a love or pleasure notion needs caution. Buy/sell, chase money midweek. By Friday, you’ll be ready to charge into romance, beauty, creativity, pleasure, joys with kids, speculations and risk. You’ll have a hot hand at the poker table. A good but unpredictable friend might woo, flirt! But that’s Friday onward.

A37

Cancer June 21-July 22: The paperwork rush continues. Errands, trips and casual acquaintances keep you busy through Thursday.After this, you enter a month of relative rest, of comfy home, kids, gardening … the pace will slow. Be cautious Sunday/Monday: your energy and luck are low, and a subtle but deep disagreement, dislike or other problem exists. (Could simply be that your love of home, security, interferes with a relationship opening or other opportunity.) Your energy and charisma surge back noon Tuesday to Thursday: tackle small things. Chase money Friday/ Saturday. Buy hi-tech Thursday night. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Continue to chase money Sunday to Thursday. A new phase begins Friday, bringing a month of talk, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances – and a friendly romance, if you’re single. Your magnetism, determination and ethical, cultural awareness grow now through Nov. 10 – you might have to sand some rough edges off your personality. Your hopes and popularity rise nicely Sunday/Monday. Be cautious Sunday in using tools to decorate anything, and in what you say to coworkers. Your energy falls midweek, but soars back Thursday night onward – you could meet a sparkling friend or idea! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, effectiveness and luck remain high, so tackle important projects. Be ambitious Sunday to 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. This last morning could bring a great agreement – or solution to past disagreement – with your spouse or at the workplace. Beware money talk or a financial gamble Sunday. Your optimism, popularity rise midweek, but “reality barriers” remain: be patient. Thursday night begins a month of money, and it starts with a great work idea or opportunity, or a “financial friendship” – a good one! It will pay off for six weeks. Your work scene faces big changes.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: These are your last five days of lowered energy – your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness begin rising swiftly Friday onward (into late October). Even earlier (Sunday night) your popularity begins to rise, for a six-week flight! This popularity streak brings great new opportunities, including life-mate prospects to singles, and practical partnership prospects to married folk. You are in a year (until June 2012) of superb financial, investment, intimate and sexual luck. This blesses financial partnerships, but could offer temptation in love – be honest, open, moral. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Five days of fun, flirtation and popularity remain, but life is beginning to grow more serious. The six weeks ahead emphasize hard work in your career field (rather than, say, at home) (if you stay at home all the time, that IS your career). These weeks, higher-ups and authorities can be impatient, temperamental, so be diplomatic, good-natured. (Thursday to Saturday, your career luck soars!) Friday begins four weeks of quietude, contemplation, management and administrative dealings. Be charitable, kind. Sunday/Monday are sexy, but chase no one Sunday. Wisdom, love midweek. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Remain ambitious for five more days. Friday starts a month of popularity, flirtations, social joys, entertainment, group affairs (from parties to conventions to politics), optimism and wish fulfillment. Sunday also begins a six-week period of “blessed love.” You might formalize a partnership (e.g., wed or sign business papers) fall in love, travel to a foreign country, attend school, start a publishing enterprise, etc. One caution: avoid legal hassles. Relationships come front and centre Sunday/Monday, but someone new can be a “sex trap,” or harm your finances – say “no.”

Sept. 18 - 24, 2011

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A gentle, understanding mood continues to flow over you. But Friday brings a new injection of ambition that will have you striving upward ceaselessly for a few weeks. Even before Friday, you spend this week curling into deeper thoughts about money and how to increase it, about the structures underlying appearances and how to use them. (Great ideas here late week!) The six weeks ahead will increase your impetuousness in investing, and will heighten your sexual urges, so be careful (but not afraid!). Tackle chores Sunday (avoid struggles with a “gracious” higher-up) and Monday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Mystery begins to dissipate – you enter a month of understanding and wider vision Friday. Until then, deal with research, detective work, finances, health and intimate urges. Sunday/Monday are romantic, but a legal matter or a love wish will not benefit you Sunday – proceed cautiously. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday night to Saturday brings exciting meetings, good friends and launches a month of wisdom, gentle love, far travel, legal and intellectual affairs, religion and higher learning. Sunday starts six weeks of intense relations: friendship could become love – or enmity. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Relationships and opportunities continue – so does the need for diplomacy. Spend most of Sunday/Monday at home, or in nature. Relax, sleep, deal with children, garden. Sunday might bring a secret liaison into the open, or put a temptation in your path that would prevent one of your fondest wishes from coming true – proceed cautiously. Romance, beauty and pleasure call midweek. Thursday night to Saturday brings chores and mild health concerns/duties – a great money idea/ opportunity exists – chase employment. Friday begins a month of secrets, urges, finances, lifestyle changes. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
