Farm looks to turn manure into energy

Anaerobic digestion system proposed BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

An East Delta dairy farm wants to build a biogas plant to produce electricity. Seabreeze Farm has applied for a non-farm use to add an anaerobic digestion (AD) system that would be used to process on-farm agricultural material and some off-farm non-agricultural feedstock to produce renewable energy, known as biomethane. At a recent presentation to the civic agricultural advisory committee, Ethan Werner with CHFour Biogas Inc., an engineering and design firm specializing in biogas systems, explained how the AD system would work. The system involves microbes in animal manure consuming

the nutrients of other materials to grow and produce methane gas. The gas is then captured and either upgraded to natural gas quality or converted to electricity by a combustion engine. AD operations can obtain revenue from the sale of either natural gas or electricity to utility companies. Werner said Jerry Keulen, owner of the 112th Street dairy farm, visited Europe to research biogas facilities to determine if this was an option for him. Werner explained that once manure has gone through the AD system, pathogens are removed and the material has a reduced odour similar to compost and wet soil. Once purified, the gas is more than 97 per cent methane. See FARM page

Senior municipal staff joined Mayor Lois Jackson Tuesday afternoon for a groundbreaking ceremony on the $4.2 million Delta Community Animal Shelter project. To be completed by the end of this year, the 12,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Tilbury and Hopcott roads will replace the outdated, 40-year-old shelter on

80th Street. The new shelter will feature 18 dog pens including covered outdoor areas, two covered dog runs, five separate cat rooms as well as space for small animals, shelter staff and volunteers. To oversee the project, CAO George Harvie established the animal shelter steering committee, which is made up of senior staff. Humphrey Construction Ltd. was awarded the design-build contract.

Alexa’s Team bolsters its ranks 165 officers added this week as policing community recognized for efforts to get impaired drivers off the road BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Another crop of police officers became members of Alexa’s Team this week. Several RCMP officers from the Deas Island detachment in Delta were among the 165 from around the Lower Mainland honoured Tuesday as member’s of Alexa’s Team in recognition for their diligence in taking impaired drivers off the road. Alexa’s Team was formed in 2008 in memory of fouryear-old Alexa Middelaer, who was killed that year after an impaired driver hit the little girl and her aunt as they fed a horse on the side of an East Ladner road. “The story of Alexa has

inspired police officers to join Alexa’s Team,” said Allan Lamb, president of the BCAA Road Safety Foundation. “We are proud to be able to celebrate their diligence and commitment to enforcing impaired driving laws.” Every year, the police officers from around the province that take the most impaired drivers off the road are made part of Alexa’s Team. Since 2008, the team has grown from 26 to 355 RCMP and municipal police officers. To be nominated, a police officer must have removed at least 12 impaired drivers from the road. Laurel and Michael Middelaer, Alexa’s parents, have worked tirelessly to

They have worked with the BCAA Road Safety Foundation to recognize these officers through the Alexa’s Team initiative.

“These are the men and women who are fundamentally responsible for making our roads safe,” Laurel Middelaer said this week. “They have delivered on their promise in an exceptional and meaningful way and we are proud to be recognizing their excellence

today in honour of our daughter, Alexa.” Eight officers — constables Sean Jeffrey, Guillaume Fauchon, Kyle Winslow, Tyrone Wilton and Jeff Miller, corporals Mark Booth and Tariq Qureshi, and Sgt. Lorne Lecker — from Deas Island Traffic Services were named as members of Alexa’s Team. They removed a total of 487 impaired drivers from local roads last year. Qureshi and Lecker were named to the All-Star team for having taken at least 34 criminally impaired drivers off the road in 2011. “The 355 RCMP and municipal police department members of Alexa’s Team demonstrates a real commitment by the police

to remove impaired drivers from B.C.’s roads,” said Insp. Ted Emanuels, RCMP traffic services operations officer for the Lower Mainland. “Fatalities from impaired driving in RCMP jurisdictions dropped by 40 per cent in 2011, from 125 in 2010 to a historic low of 74. This significant decrease can be attributed in part to the efforts of these dedicated police officers.” Carol Berner was convicted of impaired driving in 2010 in the crash that killed Alexa Middelaer and seriously injured her aunt. She’s appealing her conviction and had her case heard in B.C. Court of Appeal last November. A decision on the appeal is still pending.

Delta police to investigate incident in Prince Rupert BY

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Delta police have been called into investigate after a teenage girl was injured while she was being arrested by Prince Rupert RCMP. “Delta police major crimes investigators are responding to Prince Rupert, B.C., at the request of the RCMP in relation to an investigation where a 15year-old female sustained injuries during an arrest,” Delta police spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan said Thursday. Feenan said the investigative team was scheduled

to arrive in Prince Rupert early yesterday morning and take over the investigation. On April 4, RCMP attended a home in Prince Rupert after a report that a 15-year-old girl wanted to harm herself. The attending officers confirmed the girl was upset and wanted to take her own life, so they apprehended her under the Mental Health Act. The girl was injured during the course of the arrest and was taken to hospital for medical attention where it was determined she suffered a broken arm.

Alice Farrar celebrated her 90th birthday with family and friends Wednesday at KinVillage in Tsawwassen.

FARM from page 1 His company’s website states: “Farm-based anaerobic digester systems provide a significant ‘competitive advantage’ compared to other farms.” The website also states, “The odour levels associated with a biogas systems are negligible. Only a very small release of odour occurs when the receiving tank is opened momentarily to accept off-farm material.” The committee endorsed the proposal, but was told the Agricultural Land Commission does not have a policy specific to AD

systems, so the application will be referred to as a nonfarm use. A rezoning application is currently also required, but it won’t be brought to a Delta public hearing until after the ALC considers the proposal. The application will first go to council next month. B.C. has just two on-farm AD systems, both located in the lower Fraser Valley. The Delta application comes as the Ministry of Agriculture looks at the future of farms building their own AD systems. The ministry, which

is gathering feedback, released a discussion paper late last year on how a bylaw standard could guide local governments. The report notes the demand for on-farm anaerobic digesters is expected to increase in the next five years, fueled by evolving climate change policies, consumer demand for renewable energy and the appetite of farmers to integrate new technologies into their businesses. The major areas of concern regarding on-farm AD systems include the volume of “non-agricultural” and “off-farm” feedstock that would be allowed in digesters. Examples of such

feedstock are manure from other farms and waste from feeding or processing agricultural products. The report found the risks of bringing such feedstock onto agricultural land are not well known. The social risks could include the perception that agricultural land is a dumping ground for municipal wastes, that feedstock and digestate could smell if they are not treated and stored appropriately, and traffic to and from farms could increase. Some of the environmental concerns include increased nutrient loading in the lower Fraser Valley and contamination from

A typical biogas plant built by CH-Four Biogas Inc. A Ministry of Agriculture discussion paper notes that non-agricultural waste yields higher amounts of biogas per tonne than farm waste. foreign objects or impurities. As far as approvals, the report suggests, “In an attempt to reduce the regulatory burden for on-farm AD and allow farmers to benefit from the opportuni-

ties that anaerobic digestion provides, the ALC is considering a policy that outlines a set of criteria that, if met, would allow an anaerobic digestion project to be a permitted in the ALR without application.”

Waste goes from landfill to landfill

Redevelopment of old Burnaby paper mill means garbage will be relocated to Delta BY

Delta will allow an estimated 200,000 tonnes of industrial waste to be dumped at the Vancouver Landfill. The material will be transferred from a Burnaby site that will be redeveloped. posal. The Norampac waste doesn’t smell and would generate lower strength leachate and less landfill gas, council was told. “The relocation of waste from the site in Burnaby to Vancouver (Landfill) 03233915

Delta will allow nonrecyclable industrial waste that’s been dumped at a Burnaby landfill to be moved to the Vancouver Landfill at Burns Bog. Delta council approved a staff recommendation to transfer material from a dump located at the Norampac Paper Mill property in south Burnaby. The Norampac landfill on Wiggins Street was a Ministry of Environment approved landfill that operated from the 1960s to 2007. It was primarily used for disposal of rejects from the recovery of recycled paper fibre from the mill. The waste included plastic packing tape, shrink wrap,

packing labels, aluminum foil and other non-fibre packing, as well as small chips of cardboard and other paper. The 26-hectare (65-acre) Burnaby site was recently sold to Oxford Properties, a large real estate and property development firm based in Ontario, which wants to redevelop it. A report to council notes it has been determined the most cost effective approach to addressing the old landfill, and to maximize future development potential, is to move the waste to another permitted landfill. The report notes it is estimated approximately 200,000 tonnes of waste, which is not deemed hazardous, will require dis-

has regional benefits of cleaning up an industrial property and moving waste to a facility with high levels of environmental controls and monitoring,” the report states. Additional truck traffic can be expected, although the truck drivers would be instructed to avoid using the George Massey Tunnel. The operational certificate for the Vancouver Landfill, which is owned and operated by the City of Vancouver, sets a limit of 750,000 tonnes per year. However, the additional quantity of waste would be

managed so that limit is not exceeded. Coun. Bruce McDonald, who chairs the Delta’s environment committee, said the proposal was examined and it was determined there would be little impact on the community. Coun. Jeannie Kanakos said she initially had concerns about Delta accepting additional industrial waste, but the material is within environmental safety limits. She also said a precedent isn’t being set. The report to council notes Delta would receive at least $500,000 in royalties.

Food waste collection is gaining momentum Another three municipalities in Metro Vancouver are launching curbside collection of food scraps. As of May 1, residents of single-family homes in the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver and the District of West Vancouver will be able to recycle their food waste. On April 16, Delta began the weekly collection of combined food waste and yard trimmings for single-family homes. By October, this waste reduction initiative will be in place in a total of 16 Metro Vancouver municipalities. “Food is a resource that we can recycle into highquality soil or use to generate energy,” said Metro board chair Greg Moore. “Curbside collection programs being introduced across the region will divert this valuable resource away from disposal. Let’s keep food out of the garbage.”

Entrepreneurial Spirit VOTED MEMBER OF THE MONTH For All Of Canada By Smart Tan

For almost 40 years, John Holmes has been an avid businessman. Back then, he worked for Shell Oil doing advertising and sales promotion. His career was on track, which meant future transfers to Winnipeg then possibly Toronto. But concern for the effects on his family made him decide to go another way. “At my age, I decided I didn’t want to end up there with my four kids. They were all into hockey and figure skating,” says Holmes. Instead, Holmes bought an automotive service station and started up several convenience stores. Once again, change was on the horizon – and it wasn’t working in his favour. The landlord for his auto shop discussed raising the rent to what Holmes considered an “intolerable level” so he decided to look at other options. At the time, his oldest son seemed to be doing well with a tanning salon, which inspired his youngest son to enter a partnership for his own salon. Holmes agreed to finance his son’s portion of the partnership, but things didn’t go as planned. The other partner backed out of the deal after Holmes already verbally negotiated with the salon’s current owner. While he was on holiday, his son decided to refocus his efforts in the nightclub business – the salon deal seemed to go bust. But, like a true entrepreneur, Holmes saw an opportunity to enter the tanning industry himself. Instead of walking away, he made the bold decision to venture into an industry he did not know for the sake of making good on his word with the owner. “I made a moral commitment to this lady by asking her to give me the first offer for the business, if she decided to sell. I didn’t feel right backing away from it,” says Holmes.

UPGRADING In 1998, Holmes took over Hawaiian Beach Tanning and immediately made it his mission to make it a success. Previously, the salon had six or seven rooms, but only three had beds. Holmes was eager to bring more equipment into the salon, which quickly paid off. “We got so busy that we had to do some remodelling,” says Holmes. “We were splitting rooms in half to make room for the vertical beds. We loved seeing people so happy.” It got to the point where the salon was experiencing enough traffic that an expansion was in order. When Holmes got word that space next door was available, he jumped on the opportunity to claim it. Not long after, the location was his. What people want always seems to be on the forefront of Holmes’s mind. So, as the salon became bigger, he didn’t rely on that alone to make the salon better. Taking note of the small things has helped the salon come a long way. “We try to upgrade the feeling people have about us,” says Holmes. “I thought, ‘how can I make it obvious that we care every time they walk in?’” After dwelling on his personal experiences with little luxuries, Holmes decided that the bathrooms could make a big statement about the salon. His salon attendants make sure to fold the toilet paper into a point and remove splash marks from the mirror throughout the day. Using quality toiletries and diffusing a clean scent have helped make this small space clean and inviting.

DOING IT FIRST Much like when Holmes owned his auto service station and convenience stores simultaneously, he felt that it was important to provide a wide range of services and diversify his revenue sources. Hawaiian Beach Tanning was the first salon in Canada to offer a mystic sunless spray booth and it has remained a successful part of the business ever since. He was heralded in his community for offering a UV free alternative to tanning.

wasn’t anything like it in the area, so I could create a niche for it.” Athletes and people going through physical therapy enjoyed the relaxation and relief they could get from the unit’s dry heat. Holmes made sure that the sauna room felt like a little oasis by painting a scene of cactuses and the Grand Canyon. At the end of their session, customers are given a water bottle with the Hawaiian Beach logo and information on it, a tactic that creates the potential for salon exposure as the clients take the bottle with them when they leave. But in May 2010, Holmes added body vibration to the growing list of services available – a move that would revolutionize the culture of his salon. “We put in the body vibration machines to appeal to another section of the population that wasn’t necessarily tanning,” says Holmes. “I put two in the front sales room so they are visible to everyone. “By the time I returned from holiday, my staff told me we needed to buy more.” Holmes had the idea to give clients a free trial on the machine. By placing them in the lobby he was able to use these trials as advertising to passers-by and clients waiting in the lobby. Very quickly, the service took off. After adding two more machines to the sales room, the vibe surrounding the service became very social as women chatted away while they vibrated into better health. Best of all, his “jiggle machine” clients were in a prime location to witness the results of his happy tanners. “A lot of the older people see young people come out of the rooms happy and tan, and they consider starting to tan again,” says Holmes. This tactic also helped create a buzz when Holmes added red light therapy to the menu a few months ago. The social atmosphere in the lobby was a huge advantage as the clients talked about their results. “It’s a big ticket item compared to our tanning beds,” says Holmes. “It’s time-consuming but when our customers are on the vibration machines, they see people come out and have conversations about losing their wrinkles.”

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER But, Holmes knows that nothing sells itself – he gives major credit to his staff. Their skill and knowledge is essential, but it’s their positive attitude that makes customers feel at home. “They have got to have fun,” says Holmes. “They laugh and joke with customers and enjoy coming back to work.” The Hawaiian Beach salon staff is well-trained, beginning with a regiment of Smart Tan training modules. “Smart Tan is absolutely essential in training people,” says Holmes. “It’s by far the best training they could possibly get in this industry. We fashion ourselves after Smart Tan.” In addition to any in-salon training employees receive, they also go to as many of the local seminars as possible, including symposiums by Carole Baggerly “the Breast Cancer Survivor.” “The staff was staggered by what Carole Baggerly had to say. Hers is a hard-hitting presentation – it’s not drumming the same message in a different way,” says Holmes. He even makes a point to take selected staff to Vegas and Nashville for conventions to better their knowledge of the industry. “You get exposure to dozens of brilliant operators,” says Holmes. “You learn so much just by rubbing shoulders.”

FULL EXPOSURE

“I like to be at the sharp end of things rather than a follower,” says Holmes.

Holmes is always looking for ways to bring attention to the salon. The most effective method Holmes has implemented is participating in community events. Whether it’s a local fundraiser for the Delta Museum, Little House Society, food bank, sports team or a business association meeting, Holmes always does his best to be there.

In 2006, Holmes added another first: an infrared sauna. “I saw a lot of potential when I put in the infrared sauna,” says Holmes. “There

“Be there, be seen, be seen often,” says Holmes. “That’s what we do.” In the summer, there is a village market where Hawaiian

Beach sets up a booth every year. They are even known for bringing out body vibration machines for people to try. In addition, Holmes has agreed to sponsor his local Tier 1 hockey team: The Vancouver Giants. The idea came to him after seeing his sons – who moved away to play hockey – treated like royalty. He decided to give the players tanning for free. Now the coach and his wife come in, and people know the Giants tan there. The sponsorship has successfully created brand awareness with a variety of people.

CRUCIAL RELATIONSHIPS Hawaiian Beach is also a great example of forging relationships with political and media figureheads as well as the Health Department. Holmes has dedicated time to communicating with influential people in his community for the benefit of the tanning industry. “I booked a half hour with our local member of the legislative assembly. She already knew me from the fundraisers and things I attend to help the Community,” says Holmes. But the short meeting blossomed into a deeper discussion: “Two hours later, we finished such a good talk that benefits our industry. She extended the meeting because she was so interested,” says Holmes. “She sees how we contribute to the community – they want people to do that!” The most successful advertising for Hawaiian Beach has been in two local newspapers. By placing ads with them regularly – including recent full-page ads to promote red light therapy – Holmes has developed a beneficial relationship with the local media and appreciates their interest. “I got a lovely write-up when the pharmaceutical companies were lobbying local government. One of the papers had a negative article from some dermatologists,” says Holmes. “So [the newspaper] called me and asked if I would like to have a rebuttal. They showed me what was going to be printed ahead of time to do a meaningful rebuttal.” The ability to reach the community with a different message about sunlight was a huge benefit that didn’t cost a dime, all because he was in regular contact with these people. “In the next issue they are going to do a write up on red light therapy. This is the kind of help and support we get when we work with these people,” says Holmes.

A FIT FUTURE Business is definitely picking up as Hawaiian Beach moves into busy season with the addition of red light. But Holmes isn’t content to rely on one thing to make his business successful – like any smart businessman, he makes it a priority to diversify. Building on the success of the vibration machines, Holmes has decided to replace one of the under-performing UV units with a small fitness room. To more appropriately reflect the tone of his developing business, Holmes has changed their slogan to “We are sunshine and fitness.” A larger vibration unity, elliptical, treadmill, spin cycle and more to give clients better options to feel and look better. While Holmes believes that adding a second location may become more of a priority down the road, his firm grasp on what makes a successful salon allows him to keep developing his original store even after many years in business.

Three-day truck blitz produces 39 per cent failure rate BY

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Last week’s three-day commercial vehicle inspection saw almost 40 per cent of the trucks inspected given an out of service rating. The Delta police department’s traffic section was joined by several other agencies April 17 to 19 for

the sixth annual blitz. Inspection teams were placed at seven locations around the community. Over the three days, more than 16,000 trucks were assessed. Of that, 692 were given further inspection and 268 (39 per cent) of those were deemed to be out of service. “The inspectors used their expertise to focus on

vehicles that were not likely to pass an inspection,” said department spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan. He said inspectors were looking at trucks’ mechanical components, including brakes, tires, lights, steering and load security, as well as driver qualifications. The inspectors also issued 513 tickets for various motor vehicle viola-

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW As the Southlands saga adds another chapter to its colourful history, two things are becoming abundantly clear. The first, which is hardly a revelation, is the notion there will never be a consensus when it comes to this controversial piece of land. And that brings us to the second point: After years of remaining silent on the issue, civic politicians are going to have to make one heck of a difficult decision. Once Century Group’s development plans make their way through municipal hall, and ultimately out into the community, they will end up back in Delta council’s lap in search of direction. After years of doing their best to ignore what was often referred to at public meetings as the elephant in the room, councillors will finally have to pass judgment. Granted, this initial decision will be preliminary in nature, and might even be something as benign as seeking more information, but at some point in the not so distant future an honest to goodness determination on Century’s plans must be rendered. Last spring’s Mayor’s Summit is being hailed in some circles for producing a compromise for the Southlands. Given the number of housing units has been cut in half and the amount of land deeded to Delta has increased to 80 per cent, many point to it as a form of common ground. It would definitely be advantageous for local politicians if the summit got everyone on the same page, but it didn’t. There are many that aren’t satisfied with its outcome, and might well never be content until every last acre of the Southlands is preserved as farmland in perpetuity. These two camps, which have waged battle over this line-in-the-sand piece of real estate for years, will undoubtedly do so again whenever civic officials open up the proceedings to the masses. Faced with this inevitable split, it will then be up to council members to reconcile the disparate opinions to come up with an answer they believe is in the best interests of the community. It’s not an easy task, but it’s why we pay them the big bucks! It’s hard to say how this one will turn out. Saying no — after careful consideration, of course — is the safer approach as it will leave Tsawwassen status quo, but given the effort at the summit to craft an acceptable vision, as well as the time and money that’s currently being expended to scrutinize it, would suggest there’s a certain level of support. I guess we’ll find out once local politicians are finally forced to make that difficult decision.

Time for both sides in dispute to come up with best offer IAN ROBERTSON

COMMUNITY COMMENT Provincial legislation is forcing the teachers back to work and requiring them to produce report cards. The teachers have continued to work while “striking” and are now withdrawing voluntary services from after school activities such as sports, drama and graduation dances. A mediator, appointed by the province, is attempting to bring the teachers and the Ministry of Education together to work out an acceptable contract. Given there were over 1,000 matters yet to be resolved after months of prior negotiations, I don’t hold out much hope here for a successful resolution. What happens if no deal is struck? Will the government impose a contact on teachers? Does it have the legal authority to do so? If it has that authority and does so, what will be the response when the provincial election is held months

later? Time to digress. Our B.C. labour legislation allows the parties (management and labour) to negotiate an agreement in good faith. If there’s no resolution, then either side may walk away (strike or lockout), and stay apart as long as they can afford to do so. Both sides may, if they agree, submit to non-binding mediation at any stage of negotiation to help them get to a resolution. In some cases (such as ambulance operators), legislation designates “essential workers” and they cannot strike or be locked out. Here, typically, legislation calls for compulsory arbitration where a neutral party listens and mandates a solution with which both must live. This is not being followed with the teachers’ dispute. First, the mediator has been appointed by only one side — the government. Second, the person is a mediator with no power to bind. Third, the mediator is bound by the government issuing an instruction on how much to pay. This is not neutral mediation. As well, special legislation has been used several times to deal with teachers’ negotiations for almost two decades.

The Optimist reserves the right to edit letters and the decision to publish is at the discretion of the editor or publisher. All letters must be signed, dated and include the writer’s phone number

If the mediation fails, as is very likely, the government will have to introduce back to work compulsory legislation to get the teachers back to work in the fall. We would then be continuing a two-decade long pattern of restricting the bargaining rights of a sector of society. I have avoided bringing into this article the many issues in dispute — pay rates, increased class size, special needs students, etc. They are all matters that need to be resolved at the table. Both sides have cogent arguments on each topic. On a macro level, we have limited financial resources with which to meet the expectations of provincial government and the teachers. I can offer only one thought: best offer arbitration (also called lastbest-offer arbitration). Here, each side, after the traditional arguments are debated and heard, retires to prepare their final and best offer to settle. The arbitrator considers both and then has to pick one or the other. No compromises. It’s rough, but a way to resolve an intractable dispute and get going back to work. It has been used in the U.S. to settle disputes in sports and in schools. It’s time to end the non-stop arguing. Our kids deserve better!

April 27, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Haven’t heard from MP on port’s threat to ALR Editor: As it becomes increasingly clear from the options to purchase ALR lands and the subsequent mobilization to prevent this action, the issue is largely a federal one. Our MLA has a petition and the NDP has a motion in the B.C. legislature calling on the federal government to abstain from using its powers to exempt ALR designations and ensure the integrity of the ALR. The B.C. Liberals are too

punch-drunk and preoccupied with liquidating provincial assets to take on the feds in order to preserve assets. A noticeable silence, however, has come from our own federal MP, KerryLynne Findlay. Given that in her short tenure she’s been outspoken in back to work legislation during the postal strike and has been supportive of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s massive crime bill, we know she’s not afraid to

speak out on controversial issues. It would be good to hear her voice added to those in the constituency that have already spoken out about the fate of the ALR. Or if it is not her intent to take a strong stance against port development that encroaches on agricultural land, then in due fairness to her constituents, she should let them know. Either way, silence is not a suitable response. Rendal Steerind

Glaring need for crossing with greater capacity

Editor: I’ve viewed the disc (available at the library) on the construction of the George Massey Tunnel and, despite its construction being an engineering feat of which those involved can be proud, I think the tunnel inadequate from its opening. Simply, there are too many feeds into the major highway that passes through it. I did not need

the horrendous tie-up, which took over an hour to drive at a crawl from the Bridgeport turnoff to the first exit leaving the tunnel, to show the need for a crossing of far greater capacity. As a pedestrian, cyclist and motorist, it’s also noted there is probably no bridge in the Lower Mainland that a pedestrian or cyclist may not freely cross. To traverse this tunnel two cyclists

only may carry their bikes on a bus with payment for two zones, or a few more may use the free hourly bike shuttle with its quite limited schedule. In a major disaster, this tunnel may well become a big part of it. It’s clearly a crucible for missed flights, missed appointments, road rage and subsequent accidents and incidents attributed to that condition. Philip Hebbard

10-year-old’s birthday wish is to put smile on face of less fortunate kids

Editor: For my 10th birthday this year, I donated money to kids all around the world. A couple of months before my birthday, my mom said, “Beatrice, what if instead of gifts from your friends, you ask for a donation to someone less fortunate than us?” I thought about it, and then I thought about school. At Sacred Heart School, we like to make donations to causes around the world. One of the causes we donate to is called

Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization where doctors perform surgeries to fix poor children’s cleft palates so the kids have a normal face. Everybody brought at least $10, and with all of the donations, we paid for one whole surgery. I am happy I did this. Instead of getting little presents that only last a few weeks, this big present will last forever. Operation Smile is a very important organization as some kids die from

having a cleft palate. They die because they can’t eat or drink properly. We can change the lives for the parents, the siblings, and all the relatives and friends of this child. If everybody did this, think of how many lives we would change. Remember, it doesn’t matter how old you are, how old you are turning, or even if a teacher is reading this and decides they want to start to do something about this, you can always help.

April 27, 2012 The Delta Optimist A11 Letters to the Editor

Don’t turn to court for all the answers

Editor: April 17 marked the 30th anniversary of the enactment of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Canadians have been a proudly free people long before that document was written and will continue to be so into perpetuity. I do worry about the erosion of the power of our elected officials and the concentration of authority in the hands of the judiciary. Far too often in the last three decades, it has been the Supreme Court of Canada that has addressed the most bitter social and legal controversies, be it abortion, euthanasia, homosexual marriage, prisoner voting, drug use, pornogra-

phy and, pretty soon, prostitution. The judiciary did not seek this new power, to be fair, rather, it enveloped them because successive federal and provincial governments of all parties were too cowardly to confront these divisive subjects because they feared a challenge under the charter. This is a dangerous trend that should not be supinely accepted by any citizen whatever their political affiliation. Abraham Lincoln warned in his inaugural address of 1861: “that if the policy of government... is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court... the people will have ceased to be their own rulers...” Steven Austin

Gateway already established

Editor: The Liberals and Port Metro Vancouver have steamrolled ahead removing hundreds of hectares of food-lands to establish the Gateway Project and the South Fraser Perimeter Road in order to expedite container traffic out to Port Kells and numerous other already established Metro Vancouver warehousing areas. Now Ron Emerson Real Estate and Lamington

Heights Investments want to pave over almost 600 more prime Delta foodlands acres “closer” to Deltaport. Why would we even remotely consider this when it will negate a substantial chunk of the billions spent on Gateway access to Port Kells, etc.? The idea of losing even one more hectare of foodlands is not only scary, it is insane. Lance Read

Record amount raised

Editor: Sincere thanks to the Delta Optimist for the photo and story on Lift Every Voice, an ecumenical vocal and instrumental (also featured a liturgical dancer!) concert at South Delta Baptist Church last Sunday. It was a huge success. This is the 10th year South Delta Ministerial (a group of priests, pastors and ministers) has sponsored Lift Every Voice. Thanks to the host church and to the 10 churches

— singers, accompanists, instrumentalists — in the Ladner/Tsawwassen area that all helped to bring their amazing musical talents to this special event. And thanks to the audience that donated over $2,500 for the Community Fund of Faith (an emergency fund). It’s the most ever donated. Patricia K.

Reach will benefit again from McHappy Day at McDonald’s

Proceeds from local outlets to go to child development society on May 2 Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald’s restaurants have once again named Reach Child and Youth Development Society as their charity of choice for McHappy Day proceeds. The 20th McHappy Day in the history of McDonald’s Canada will be held on Wednesday, May 2. On this day, one dollar from every Happy Meal, coffee, McMuffin and Big Mac sold goes to local children’s charities across the country. Reach Child and Youth Development Society has been in the community for over 50 years providing programs, services and resources to children and youth with special needs and their families. Programs include infant development, therapies, inclusive preschools, services for

teens with special needs and more. Reach is currently raising

$4 million to build a centre in the heart of Ladner that will make services easier to access, and help serve more children and youth with developmental disabilities. This is the sixth year the Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald’s are donating McHappy Day proceeds to Reach. Volunteers will be at McDonald’s greeting customers and offering information about Reach. There will also be face painting, balloon animals, music and more. Reach’s rentable wheelchair bikes will also be on display in both locations.

Lawlor Goldsmith Shoppe hosting pearl clinics A local jewelry store is bringing in some experts next weekend for its Know Your Pearls event. Ladner’s Lawlor Goldsmith Shoppe is hosting two Know Your Pearls clinics on both May 5 and 6, one in the morning and a second in the afternoon. During the 15- to 20minute sessions, pearl experts will discuss how pearls are made and how to

identify them, explaining the different qualities types. They will also provide pearl care instructions as well as answer any questions. “We encourage you to bring in your pearls for the gemologist to look at,” said owner Janet Holmes. “They will be able to tell you a lot about your personal pearls. They can even appraise your pearl pieces, or they can quote re-

stringing and even discuss re-designing.” The experts will also be bringing lots of pearls with them, including a large selection of finished pieces and loose pearl strands. They will have many different types of pearls — mother of pearl, freshwater, akoya and south sea. “You can choose a loose strand and a clasp and we will have the necklace or

bracelet made up for you in time for Mother’s Day,” Holmes said, adding the store will have gift sets available. Those attending can enter to win a yellow gold faceted amethyst pearl enhancer pendant, which will be drawn on Sunday, May 6. The Know Your Pearls sessions are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. both May 5 and 6.

The team from South Delta Secondary is this year’s B.C. Youth Poetry Slam champions after capturing the title at Hullabaloo 2012 last weekend. After six days of performances and close to 700 poetry fans attending the festival, South Delta Secondary rose to the challenge last Saturday at The Arts Club Theatre’s Granville Island Main Stage.

Stay focused “He shoots... he scores!” Even if you’re not a fan, you will have heard by now that our beloved Canucks have ended their run to the Stanley Cup. Many of us watched with pounding hearts the fifth game with the Kings and know that none of us could have worked any harder than those fellows who were on the ice that night. One of the key elements of a great hockey game is driving the puck to the net and staying focused on that one goal. This is the same for any sport, for any project, and also for our life. During these past several weeks we have been focused on the life and work of Jesus. We have followed him

as he journeyed to the cross, and we have celebrated as we have come to know of his rising to life again in resurrection. Throughout all of these Easter lessons comes the theme: stay focused. But you and I know it’s hard to stay focused when life’s demands are bearing down on us — waiting to trip us up or to take us out of play. We, like those early followers of Jesus, are bombarded with images and ideas that take our focus away from the work at hand. What is that work? What does the Lord require of us? “... to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God...” So let’s stay focused because you and I are still in the game.

Delta Hospice grief program goes beyond the first year

03297651

The Ladner Tennis Club has a long and proud history as a non-profit association in South Delta. Since 1976 the club has been active at Hawthorne Park with membership ranging between 60 and 100 players. “Today’s members are a nice mix of youth and adult aged players with a full range of skill levels.

Often when we are widowed, we think about looking for grief support in the early months after a loss. We might want to understand the vast range of reactions we are having, learn ways of supporting ourselves while grieving or meet other people also experiencing this significant change. Sometimes after a year or more, our questions and needs might change. While we are familiar with periodic waves of grief, we may start to have questions about what moving on means, and about how we can incorporate and make sense of this loss within the wider scope of our lives. This May the Delta Hospice Centre for Supportive Care is hosting Beyond the First Year, a sixweek series for widows and widowers who are looking for an opportunity to speak with other individuals experiencing similar grief. For more information about this series or other programs at Delta Hospice, call Margaret Fletcher at 604-948-0660.

April 27, 2012 The Delta Optimist A23 In the Community

Arts camp has impressive list of instructors Imagine That returns to Cedar Park Church for a third summer of theatre, visual arts, dance, cooking and more to share with friends and family. This is a great way to explore potential, gain confidence and have fun in a supportive environment. • Local animator Ken Priebe will be teaching Animated Filmmaking, where in just five sessions campers will create a short film using stop-motion animation. Participants will work as a group to write a story, create a storyboard, build clay puppet characters and sets, and shoot them frame-by-frame. • Art teacher Brenda Breuls will take campers on field trips to explore basic drawing and painting using nature as inspiration. • One of the most popular classes at Imagine That Summer Arts Camps is the Culinary Arts Workshop taught by instructor Marina Peckinpaugh. She will be teaching Kids can Cook, a hands-on session working with foods that will increase interest in cooking through creating something tasty for family and friends. • Janet Priebe will be teaching fun and creative

The Imagine That Summer Arts Camp is back for its third season. What began as an idea about four years ago has grown into an annual camp offering a quality arts program to kids, introducing and encouraging interest in the arts with an opportunity to be mentored by artists active in their fields. Director Brenda Breuls has compiled an outstanding roster of instructors for 2012: • Jim Martens is a retired drama teacher and has cultivated a life-long love of all things dramatic. He will be teaching a course titled Getting My Act Together where kids will enjoy learning about the acting process from basic drama to polished presentation techniques featuring games, skits, pantomime and theatre sports. • Tracy Neff from South Delta Secondary’s film acting academy will be teaching musical theatre.

Will & Power of Attorney Have you prepared your Will? The Society of Notaries Public of BC conducted a province-wide poll just over a year ago and found that, on average, only 51% of British Columbians aged 18+ have a current and legal Will.

When someone dies without a Will, it can create additional grief for family and friends. Without a Will, any one of the heirs may apply to the court to administer the estate. If the other heirs do not agree with this appointment— or if no one steps up—by law the office of the BC Public Guardian and Trustee must manage the estate and charge a fee for the work. Some people face years of financial expense and time to unravel a loved one’s finances. To those left behind to handle the paperwork, a Will is priceless. In my experience, most people are relieved after they make a Will and are surprised at how easy the process is.Will-planning and the related discussions among loved ones can open important channels of communication, bring people closer, and create more certainty and peace of mind for all. If you would like to discuss preparing a Will or refer a family member or friend, please contact my office or myself directly.

Comedian lands at ’Bay Randy Charach brings his mind reading hilarity to airport BY

DAVE WILLIS

C

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

omedian and mentalist Randy Charach is coming to Ladner next week for a performance at the Skyhawk Restaurant at Boundary Bay Airport. “It’s a comedy mind reading show. It’s similar to magic but everything I do is of a psychic theme — reading minds, predicting future events, that sort of thing. It’s all done in fun,” says Vancouver’s Charach, noting he doesn’t claim to actually be psychic. Charach is a veteran performer, having done more than 5,000 shows over the span of his career. He started performing magic at the age of five after being inspired by his uncle, a Las Vegas magician. He inherited all of his uncle’s magic props after he passed away when Charach was 12. Charach became a fulltime professional entertainer at 17. He started with children’s magic, moved into comedy magic and then motivational speaking gigs with magic to illustrate his points. He’s evolved into performing mentalism. “That is, in my opinion, a higher form of magic. It

involves utilizing the audience and their thoughts in the actual show.” It’s the “same sort of thing” performers like David Blaine and Criss Angel have made popular and goes back further to the Amazing Kreskin, he notes. Audience interaction is a big part of Charach’s show. “Everything I do involves at least one person from the audience, sometimes up to five at a time. I do different demonstrations, or routines or tricks — whatever you want to call it — with people,” he explains. “It’s a lot of fun and anybody who wants to be involved, can during the show. There’s lots of opportunities for anybody to come up and have some fun on stage.” Charach has performed across Canada and the United States, as well as in Australia, Asia, Mexico and Europe. Performing at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas marks a highlight for Charach, noting he’d always wanted to perform on the Las Vegas strip because of his uncle and a number of magician friends he’d made over the years who had also done shows there. “That was really a lot of fun.” He’s also appeared as a guest entertainer on

Princess Cruise Lines, on numerous TV shows and the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, which is described as a “showplace for some of the greatest magicians from around the globe.” Natalie Finkle, manager of Skyhawk Restaurant, notes in a press release the event is a chance for Deltans to be entertained close to home. “Skyhawk Restaurant has an open space concept and is perfect for events. I enjoy, like many other individuals, watching live shows and being entertained when I go out. I would like Skyhawk Restaurant to provide this for people in Delta without the hassle of driving downtown,” she says. Charach will perform on Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Skyhawk Restaurant, (102-7800 Alpha Way) at Boundary Bay Airport. Admission costs $5 at the door. For more on Charach visit his website at www. comedypsychic.com.

Sidekick postpones Affections Production will now kick off theatre group’s 16th season in September Sidekick Players Club president Carroll Lefebvre announced this week the local theatre group has had to postpone The Affections of May by Norm Foster, which was due to open May 10. Lefebvre said unfortunate and unforeseeable circumstances have forced Sidekick to delay production, but not cancel it. The Affections of May will now be staged in September Carroll at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre, opening Sidekick’s 16th season. Lefebvre says the season promises to be one of the best yet with five productions, four of which are Canadian. The Affections of May will run Sept. 13 to 29 and will be followed Foster’s Ethan Claymore, a holiday romantic comedy on stage Nov. 15 to Dec. 1. The first play of the new year will be If We are Women by Joanna Glass, an oasis of insight and honesty about three generations of women in a family that will deliver humour, compassion and hope to everyone who sees it.

Opening Night by Foster, which offers boisterous fun, will run April 11 to 27, while the only non-Canadian play, Faith County, An Evening of Culture, by Mark Landon Smith, rounds out the season. It runs from June 6 to 22. All performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday only at 8 p.m. at the Tsawwassen Arts Lefebvre Centre. Lefebvre says Sidekick would like to thank Corporation of Delta staff for their assistance and prompt response in making the move of The Affections of May possible as well as the Gary Goddard Agency in Toronto for granting permission to move the production to September. Subscriptions are now available for the five-play season at affordable prices. Those interested are asked to e-mail Lefebvre at carroll.lefebvre@hotmail.com before July 1.

runch Time! “I’ve booked our gulet and need to send a deposit right away. You’ve all given your okay and I am going ahead on that basis.” This red-tagged email from our trip organizer appears in my inbox on a wet November day. The time for planning over copious bottles of plonk is over. No more what-ifs. Too bad if Fred breaks his leg playing hockey or Jane gets laid off, or the old furnace blows just before the May departure date. All 18 of us are on the hook! A gulet began as a traditional Turkish, two-masted wooden schooner, an ideal design for fishing, sponging, cargo moving — even plundering the odd Greek Island way back when. Today, the word “gulet” conjures up images of lolling around on richly upholstered deck cushions, sipping bubbly under a relentless Mediterranean sun and piggingout on delectable meals, served up on white tablecloths by impeccable, unobtrusive staff. The only stress may come from choosing activities for the day. Perhaps a quiet bay for lunch? A swim? A nice snooze while the captain steams into a small village for a touch of carpet trading? Does that sound like an ad for Freedom 55 or the lottery? Smart Turkish boat builders from around Bodrum and Marmaris spotted cruising potential back in the early 1970s. With the promise of pristine islands, untrammeled beaches and secluded bays a mere pitcher’s toss away, tourists began looking for boats to charter. Before long, master craftsmen were beavering away with hammers, saws and chisels at beach-side shipyards to fill the demand. Monster vessels with shining wooden decks and luxurious en-suite, air-conditioned cabins started rolling from slipways into the sea — each requiring a year or more to construct. Today, we arrive in the small southwest-

ern Turkish port of Gocek in dribs and drabs. Some had chosen to add side trips along the way. To get nine couples to commit to a date for a dinner party is formidable enough, never mind a commitment for 10 days on a boat, seven months previously and thousands of kilometres away. Surely a non-starter? Unless you have a skilled, nononsense, organiser — as we do. Fast forward to May 24. Our gullet, Cemre 4, all 30 metres of her, sits at the dock gleaming in the sunshine. Her chef is wheeling the last of the supplies up the gangplank. Two boat boys are already fluffing up her cushions and polishing rails. Captain Hayati Arabali has just finished checking the cabins and greets us with a warm Turkish smile. Two major issues have already been settled. Firstly, a lottery for the choice of cabins. Secondly, following extensive wine and beer tastings at the local supermarket, we settle on the “poison” of choice. After all, cruising is thirsty work. To avoid total inertia, it was decided we would make two shore excursions each day and spend the evenings at anchor in a perfect bay. For 10 days we explore the Lycian tombs at Myra; join the pilgrims at the Church of St. Nicholas where the bones of “Santa Claus” have lain since his death in AD 343; sing lustily in the ancient ruins of the theatre in Kas; and buy enough carpets to open scads of stores back home. We eat scrumptious dinners in deserted bays and share empty white sand beaches with goats. We celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries and toast our persuasive leader, without whom this experience would surely never have happened! The cost for 10 days of living like millionaires? Around $100 per person per day. The verdict? “Where to next year?” Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate that offers professionally written travel articles to newspaper editors and publishers.

A little Mini that has big zip It might not be everyone7s cup of tea visually, but it7s sure fun to drive

BY

BRENDAN MCALEER Optimist contributor

This year, Mini celebrates 10 years of retro done right. BMW had quite the task to live up to when it resurrected the vaunted nameplate of a tiny car that was both transport for the masses and a rally champion. However, I think we can all safely say: job well done, tea and crumpets all around. But you can’t just keep churning out a single model and expect to run a car company. For instance, people who loved the original are going to want something bigger. Enter the station-wagonish Clubman and the smallbut-roomy Countryman crossover. But that’s not the only group to which you’ve got

less practical. Something with a little more style. Something you won’t see a dozen of every day. Well good news then. Mini has you covered. Design: Before we get carried away, it’s worth noting that style is a highly subjective thing. I may not be the most stylish person in the world, but my first thoughts upon seeing the Mini Coupé in the metal for the first time

ran something along the lines of, “My eyes! The goggles do nothing!” This is not a car for everyone. The choppeddown roofline is purported to resemble a backwards baseball hat, and we all know you can’t wear your baseball hat backward in a job interview. Unless you’re applying to be a baseball umpire. From some angles, the Mini Coupé works quite

well; some of the cutesy nature of the regular Cooper has been replaced by a bit more aggression. However, from other angles it looks like an elephant sat on it. One solution is to drive around everywhere with the retractable spoiler always fully raised (it automatically deploys at 80 km/h). Environment: If you’ve sat in one Mini, you’ve sat in them all. Some things I like, such as the aero-look switchgear to raise and lower the windows. Some things I don’t, like the cartoonish gauges that seem designed to let your passenger know how fast you’re going, but keep things a mystery to the driver. As a result of this focus on a retro-feel, many of the controls in the Mini Coupé can take much longer to get used to than would normally be the case. It is much more difficult to adjust the temperature without removing your eyes from the road than it would be in an equivalent BMW 1-series, for instance. My advice: set it and forget it.

MINI from page 30 And then there’s the other drawback of a sleeker look: The cabin of the Mini Coupé is as tight as the inside of a racing helmet, and will doubtless prove an impossibility for taller drivers. You also lose the back seats, and while the rear hatch opens wide, there’s not a great deal of space for luggage or larger objects. What’s more, the combination of incredibly stiff suspension and short wheelbase bring forth all kinds of creaks and rattles. The back parcel shelf wiggles about so much, your passengers will think you’re transporting a case of maracas. Visibility suffers too, with large rear blind spots and a pillbox forward view. Being first in line at the traffic lights will have you craning forward to see if the light’s gone green yet. Performance: But when the light does go green, look out! Luckily, the other major facet you’ll find in any Mini has been well preserved in the Coupé: it is more fun than a barrel of chocolate-flavoured monkeys. An entire raft of clichés apply where a Mini’s handling is concerned, but I’ve always felt the best way to describe how a Cooper takes to the corners is to liken it to driving around inside a Jack Russell terrier. It’s not really a go-kart, although there is an element of hummingbird-dartiness to the steering; instead, it scrabbles through a turn with puppy-dog enthusiasm and not a small amount of torque steer. The Cooper S Coupé, while chopped down from the regular Cooper S, is no lighter than its conventional-looking cousin, and the chassis is only slightly stiffer. On the other hand, the screwed-down roof lowers the centre of gravity somewhat, and the Coupé already has impressive underpinnings from the standard Cooper. Depress the sport button just forward of the gearshift, and unlock an overboost function that adds a further 15 lb./ft. of torque to bring the total to 192, a healthy figure for such a diminutive car. It also firms up the steering, sharpens the throttle and uncorks the exhaust. Really, why would you drive your Mini in any other mode? Whatever you think of the Mini Coupé’s looks, trust me, the drive will win you over. It’s just such a pitch-perfect car to drive,

especially with the sixspeed manual, and if the pop-pop-pop accompanying a perfectly rev-matched downshift doesn’t plaster an acre-wide grin across your face, consult your physician: you might be dead. Features: As you might expect, all this fun comes at a cost, and it’s not inconsiderable. The as-optioned price on my Cooper S tester had climbed solidly into the mid-30s: WRX territory, or as much as a fully-loaded Camry. Not very good value by the pound. The base Cooper S Coupé starts at $31,150, to which various options such as the $1,900 Sport Package (stiffer suspension and 17inch alloy wheels) can be added. I like to play a fun game on the Mini.ca configurator trying to see how much money can be spent customizing a car. A few clicks will option up a Cooper S Coupé to north of $45K. Still, features like Bluetooth are standard, and there’s nothing wrong with having a very nicely optioned small premium car: many expensive things are purchased by the gram. Also, probably only the Sport Package could be considered a must-have. Despite a driving experience that is at its best when flitting about with your right foot fully flexed, the Mini Coupé returned excellent fuel-economy, thanks to its light weight. Transport Canada’s usual over-optimistic figures are 7.7L/100kms in the city and 5.6L/hwy. Expect to see somewhere in the 910L/100km range if you’re primarily zipping around town. Green Light: Thrilling steering; fizzy exhaust note; willing turbocharged engine. Stop Sign: Poor visibility; limited practicality; strange instrumentation; odd appearance. The Checkered Flag: A fun-to-drive tyke that’s much more engaging than more powerful — and more expensive — machinery. Though if you want one that’s slightly more practical and easier to see out of, you’ll find the regular Cooper S works just fine. Competitors: Fiat 500 Abarth ($23,995) It’s not even in showrooms yet, and already the lineups are forming for the new, hot version of Fiat’s 500. Based on the Fiat Panda, the tiny 500 has

already done well, bringing a little Italian flair to the compact market. However, with a scant 100hp on tap, you wouldn’t exactly call the standard 500 quick. That’s where this new turbocharged model comes in. Boosted up to 140hp, the Abarth has the sting of a scorpion in its tail, and a sport-tuned suspension to match. What’s more, you’ll get your exclusivity, and keep your back seat too. BMW 128i ($36,000) If you want a small, sporty Coupé built by

0

BMW, why not buy a BMW? The 128i might be the low-end of the range for the blue-and-white roundel but it is, in many ways, closer to the spirit of classic BMWs than some of its much more costly brethren. There is something of the old 2002tii in the way the 128i nimbly flits through the corner, and then there’s the pureness that only a short-wheelbase rear-wheeldrive car can provide. Drawbacks? Not many, though the 128i might not be the last word in chic appearance.

Tough task for Jr. Sun Devils

With little options, boys rugby team had to compete in tier one of Surrey League Short but hardly sweet. That best describes the 2012 season for the South Delta Sun Devils junior boys rugby team which wrapped up yesterday with an exhibition match against Clayton Heights. With no Delta league to compete in and lower tier options unavailable due to some programs folding over the current teachers’ labour dispute, the Devils had little choice but to enter one of the toughest circuits in the province. South Delta was part of the tier one Surrey league that features such traditional powerhouses as Earl Marriott and Lord Tweedsmuir. Adding to the challenge was the Sun Devils fielding a team of Grade 9 and 10 players while their opponents were exclusively Grade 10. It hardly came as a surprise when the locals failed to win a game but they were at competitive in every outing, including one stretch where they played four times in eight days. “That was the encouraging thing, just the boys’ will to compete,” said South Delta co-coach Malcolm Johnston. “These teams were not only bigger than us but some had players that are national team candidates. They also have the luxury of having two or three tiers (of teams) at this age group where we are doing are best just to put one on the field. “Moving forward, the boys have gained a lot of experience The Devils’ roster features a core of players who are involved at the junior club level with Bayside or the Delta Brit Lions. Much of the coaching of the SDSS rugby program, which involves three teams — senior, junior and Grade 8, is done by outside coaching.

The South Delta Sun Devils junior boys rugby team’s 2012 schedule included an exhibition match against Vyner, a touring school from the United Kingdom.

Ladner baseball player Jackson Gooch is enjoying an outstanding season at Lamar Community College in Colorado. The Delta secondary graduate is one of the team’s top hitters with a .405 batting average that includes 11 home runs in 148 plate appearances. The centre fielder has started all 41 games. The 6-foot-4, 210 pound sophomore recently committed to a scholarship at the NCAA Division One level at McNeese State University for his final two years of college eligibility. He is also eligible for the Major League draft in June. Gooch is one of three Canadians on Lamar’s roster. The division one junior college program is making a strong push to qualify for the upcoming Junior College World Series. Gooch grew up through the Ladner Minor Baseball system before leaving to play in the B.C. Premier Baseball League where he was a one time teammate of current Toronto Blue Jays prospect Tom Robson. .

Ladner players help Junior Blue Jays get off to fast start to open league play Douglas College in New Westminster. Along with the Senior Blue Jays, the Junior Jays compete in the wood bat only Premier Baseball League (PBL) which is the highest level of ball in B.C. This year’s team is comprised of players from Richmond, Surrey, Cloverdale, Vancouver and Delta. The league consists of 12 teams from the Okanagan, Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland. Some notable PBL alumni include major leaguers Brett Lawrie, Jeff Francis and Justin Morneau. The boys are looking forward to a busy season which will include in excess of 75 games from April to August.

A contingent of players from Ladner has helped the North Delta Blue Jays Junior Premier baseball team get the 2012 season off to an impressive start. The Blue Jays took all four games in their season opening series last weekend against the visiting Okanagan A’s at Mackie Park. After a productive 2011 campaign playing Bantam AAA together, a core group of local boys were successful in making the team. Austin Ell, Mike Smith, Dayton Wilson, Malcolm Boehm, and Brock Morgan endured a series of tryouts last September that included Fall Ball, winter training at the Richmond Oval and strength/conditioning at

Brandy Leitz helps Thunder make history

Ladner ringette standout a key member of first B.C. team to win gold medal at the Canadian Championships Brandy Leitz helped the Lower Mainland Thunder make history. The Ladner ringette player had a key role in the expansion Thunder capturing gold at the Canadian Championships, held recently in Burnaby. Ranked seventh in the country coming into the nationals, the Thunder

knocked off the top four clubs in the country, including three from back east in a two-day span, to win the first-ever Canadian ringette title in any division for B.C. The Thunder handed Eastern conference regular season champion Montreal Mission just its third loss of the year, upsetting the highscoring Quebec club 7-2 in

the gold medal final. First team all-star forward Salla Kyhala, a former Finnish national team player, was the tournament MVP, scoring four goals in the final to lead the Lower Mainland team to its history-making win. “This is where I saw the team going,” said Kyhala, who had nine goals and two assists in her last three games. “Our defence

scored, other people scored — I saw us as a team that we could do this. I saw us going this way — we can do this.” The Thunder opened with a 2-3 start before turning their collective fortunes around with a 7-4 victory over Western champions Prairie Fire. Leitz finished that game with four points. She also came through with huge outing in a must-

win game against Eastern runner-up Cambridge Turbos, scoring four of her team’s goals in a 6-2 win. The two 4-3 teams then played a mini 10-minute tiebreaker to decide which team would advance against the 6-1 Ottawa Ice and a chance for a berth into the final. Kyhala kept the Thunder’s hopes alive with the only goal of the contest.

The Thunder were coming off an impressive expansion season in the National Ringette League, finishing second in the Western Conference. Leitz finished ninth in league scoring with 85 points, including 41 goals. The product of the Delta Ringette Association is currently studying human kinetics at the University of B.C..

June 19, 1927 - April 22, 2012

Harry passed away peacefully April 22, 2012 at Delta Hospital surrounded by his family. He received 17 bonus years after surviving two forms of cancer. Harry was born in Veregin, Saskatchewan in 1927 and grew up in Kamsack, Saskatchewan. He was predeceased by his wife Sheila and his sister Vera. He is survived by his sisters Polly and Irene and his brother Larry; his three sons Gordon (Angela), Raymond (Michele), Steven (Nancy); and his granddaughters Kayla, Melissa and Sarah and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the caring staff at Augustine House in Ladner who enabled him to live independently over the past three years. Thanks also to the tremendous staff at Delta Hospital for their compassionate care in his final days.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your popularity, optimism and luck rise nicely through May. There remains a silent, solitary or private attraction or situation to mull over – it could be an old friend, a lover whom you don’t want revealed to everyone, or simply a nice streak of “home sweet home.” This private zone needs careful handling through August – don’t yield to temptation, nor commit yourself irrevocably. Career or prestige discussions continue well. Shop Sunday a.m., not Monday. Travel, talk Tuesday/Wednesday. Be home, or hold a garden party, Thursday/Friday. This night triggers sweet attraction. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy and charisma soar briefly Sunday/Monday. Send a letter, missive, email Sunday a.m. to someone you love (even a favorite nephew, niece). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday (best) and Wednesday. Errands, trips, talk and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday (careful Thursday morn). Retreat to a comfy chair, kitchen or garden, Friday night, Saturday. A good, easy week, with perhaps one ethical or cultural dilemma at its end. But all week, be ambitious, propose to higher-ups, display your talents, especially Tuesday. Through mid-2013, your popularity will rise – better after August. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Mysteries, detective work, health diagnosis, sex, intimacy, investments, debt, lifestyle decisions – these weigh on you, as the need to act, to step boldly, is undeniable. This pressure lasts to early July. This week and the next two, you’re wise enough, and see the big picture enough, to make a good decision: where to live, to whom to be loyal, what major change to make in your life, etc. Read, listen to information: it contains valuable clues. Rest, remain in the background Sunday/Monday. Your energy, charisma shoot upward midweek – start something! Money, Thursday/Friday.

Clutter Taking Over?

Giant Spring Sale

5233 Brigantine Road

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Buy, sell, seek a pay raise or overtime and cultivate new clients. You might feel possessive about your loved one. Communications and travel, paperwork, errands and casual friendships flow well now to August – but if you experience a noticeable delay in any of these, walk away. Travel, Internet, coffee talks, etc. can spark an attraction that might grow into a partnership. But remain skeptical about people you meet in these ways until September. Sunday/Monday are romantic. Tackle chores midweek. Relationships – and intimacy – face you Thursday-Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charisma, courage, clout and effectiveness soar for the next three weeks, Taurus – start important ventures, see and be seen, ask favours, demonstrate your talents. Your earnings (your whole money picture) look great to August – so do your sensual involvements. But a trap might also exist in both areas until September: DON’T try to get something for nothing, don’t yield to temptations, and if you meet inexplicable delays (even small ones) get out, fast. Spend Sunday at home. Romance, creativity and “happy risk” draw you Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Say yes! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest; avoid the crowd. Your energy is low, though your charisma is unusually potent. You could attract someone who is too energetic, or demanding/needy for you – this applies right into Aug, 30, so be patient, love without bias, and know the cosmos will pick the right time. (If a love affair is dumped in your lap before September, at least give it a good try. But if you have to chase it, let that tiny spark of resentment guide you to walk away.) Avoid arguments at home. Sunday’s busy, happy. Settle into home or rest midweek. Thursday/ Friday spark romantic notions.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Like Virgo, you face mysteries, detective work, health diagnoses, intimacy, financial and lifestyle decisions. These zones are lucky, especially up to May 13, so dive in rather than play for safety. (But remain honest, ethical.) Sunday/ Monday feature wish fulfillment, social joys. Lie low, rest midweek. You can make a great investment Tuesday. Your energy and charisma rise Thursday/ Friday: act to establish your position in power play, intimate or financial situations. Chase money, buy/sell Friday night, Saturday. Legal or international waters hold joys and traps – be long-sighted! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships face you, carrying huge bags of potential: lucky money opportunities, beneficial relocation, negotiations, public dealings – especially as we approach May 13. You’ll need diplomacy, eagerness and desire to join. Where relationships veer into commitment, funding, intimacy – there you have good luck mingled with difficult karma, so step carefully. (Yes, it sounds contradictory.) Be ambitious Sunday (best) and Monday. Midweek, wishes come true, your popularity rises. But retreat, rest and contemplate Thursday/ Friday. Your energy, charisma surge Friday night, Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Work piles up – plunge into it. Protect your health, eat and dress sensibly. Relationships continue to sparkle – now to August, people treat you with grace and affection. If you want to approach someone but are afraid, approach now; even if you’re rejected, you’ll walk away smiling. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Sunday/Monday. Career, prestige and relations with authority arise midweek. Bosses are temperamental now to July, so be diplomatic, grin and bear it. You’ll be more creative in your career. Friends and sunshine bless you Thursday/Friday. Retreat Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance, creative surges, joys from children, beauty, pleasure, vacation, self-expression, speculation and rewarding risks – these fill your days. They might build to a lucky situation or love around mid-May, but it will have a big responsibility attached. Until July, stray idealistic or “principled” thoughts might urge you to end a romance – I wouldn’t. Much talk at home might prefigure a summer struggle: talk about the pressures and “accidents” you fear might loom. Mysteries arise Sunday. Sweet wisdom midweek. Ambition Thursday/ Friday. Friday night begins an exciting weekend. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead emphasize home, children, security, retirement, foundations, nature and nutrition. These build to a superb opportunity (peaking about May 13) – for example, you could buy real estate (and be forever glad you did) or start a family healing, create a child, etc.You’ll feel sluggish, so take frequent naps. Your investigative talents rise to the surface, now to July – so might your sexual desires, so be good, moral, especially Tuesday/ Wednesday. Sunday/Monday highlight relationships (maybe love, Sunday morn, noon). Seek wisdom, learning, travel afar, Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The main accent lies on travel, communications, errands, details, paperwork, and casual friends. These swell large, might provide you with a pathway to career or business success. (E.g., an idea or email you send the boss might wake him/her to your talents. Or you meet a VIP while running your errands.) Partners and others abandon their winter/spring indecision, and leap up to respond to you (especially midweek) – whether favourably or not, depends. Your home life is sweet, affectionate, until August.Tackle chores Sunday/Monday. Mysteries, finances, sexy urges arise late week. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
