Delta police take suspect into custody

Queens of the Valley!

After fleeing to Australia, Rick Glendinning back in court to face sex assualt charges

The former Tsawwassen resident who fled the country in the face of several sex-related charges has been remanded in custody until a court hearing next week. Jamieson Richard (Rick) Glendinning was taken into custody by Delta police investigators at Vancouver International Airport last Friday after he was deported from Australia. Glendinning appeared before the court last Friday afternoon and will remain in custody until a Nov. 20 hearing in Surrey provincial court. He is currently facing several charges, including indecent assault, gross indecency, sexual assault, failing to attend court and

breach of recognizance. On June 11, a warrant was issued for Glendinning’s arrest after he failed to attend court in Surrey. He was subsequently located in Sydney, Australia in October, where he was arrested and held in an immigration detention centre pending his return to Canada. Glendinning was escorted back to Vancouver by Australian authorities and was turned over to Delta police. He was immediately transported to Surrey provincial court where he was transferred into the custody of sheriffs for court processing. See SUSPECT page 3

Frustrated civic workers vote in favour of filing for mediation BY




Nicole McNamara (7) helped the South Delta Sun Devils make history Wednesday night by capturing their first ever Fraser Valley “AAAA” senior girls volleyball title with a win over Port Moody’s Heritage Woods Kodiaks. Next up for the province’s top ranked team is the B.C. championships in two weeks. For more details see Page 43.

The union representing civic workers voted Wednesday to file for mediation in its contract negotiations with Delta. Members of CUPE Local 454 gathered at the Delta Town & Country Inn for a special meeting in the wake of the latest round of collective bargaining talks. That session on Nov. 8 ended quickly with management walking away from the table, indicating it need-


ed to seek further direction from Delta council. “Our members met yesterday to discuss the state of bargaining and provide direction to their bargaining committee,” local president Darryl Robison said Thursday. “The members in attendance expressed frustration that there has been little progress made at the table and felt that mediation might be the solution to break the deadlock.” See UNION page 3

TFN election results contested Two appeals filed following September vote that saw Bryce Williams top Kim Baird in chief’s race BY


The recent Tsawwassen First Nation election is being contested. TFN chief administrative officer Doug Raines confirmed two appeals were filed regarding the Sept. 5 election, however, the identities of those who filed and the grounds for appeal are protected by confidentiality. He told the Optimist this week it also can’t be revealed who in the newly elected government is the target, other than the appeals are based on “technical issues” leading up to the election. Bryce Williams, a 23year-old carver, defeated longtime incumbent Kim Baird in the election for chief. The vote was 78 to 69 in favour of Williams, who was first elected to the TFN’s government in 2009 and had served on the executive council. The defeat of Baird, who was acclaimed in the last election and had been chief since 1999, was a surprise to many outside the TFN. Baird told the Vancouver Sun this week she personally didn’t file an appeal, but declined to comment further. September’s election also saw several newcomers selected to the 12-person legislature. Under the TFN Elections Act, any member can file an appeal within one month of the election, which was done last month. The elected legislators in question have to formally respond, which was also done.


An appeal could be filed on the grounds an offence was committed that might have affected the outcome of the election or a candidate was ineligible to be elected. The TFN Judicial Council, the First Nation’s equivalent to a supreme court, will deal with the matter. The TFN’s Elections Act

states the Judicial Council may dismiss the appeal, disqualify the chief or one or more legislators from office, as well as order a by-election for the office of chief or for some or all of the offices of legislator. Under the TFN’s Constitution Act, final orders of the Judicial Council will be enforced by the provincial or supreme

courts of B.C. as if they were orders of either of those courts. Some final orders of the Judicial Council may be appealed to the B.C. Supreme Court. Where there is no right of appeal to the B.C. Supreme Court, the order or decision of the Judicial Council is final. Raines said this will be the first-ever matter the

Judicial Council will deal with since it was formed a couple of years ago. The council can hear appeals by members and make rulings on a number of the TFN’s acts. It can also hear appeals by non-members, who aren’t eligible to vote in the election, living at the First Nation. However, the council can only hear appeals

Delta’s unionized workforce has been without a contract since the end of 2011. Delta is negotiating directly with its employees after leaving the Metro Vancouver Labour Relations Bureau. As far as wages and benefits, CUPE Local 454 has proposed a four-year deal with “minor benefit improvements.” The union is also seeking a wage

increase of around two per cent annually over the length of the contract, which Robison said is about the average being reached in other jurisdictions. The latest bargaining bulletin to CUPE Local 454 members states the union’s bargaining committee believes it is close to a settlement, but it needs some cooperation from the employer.

SUSPECT from page 1 Glendinning is facing charges from alleged incidents that took place several years ago. He was first arrested by Delta police and charged in September 2010 after three alleged victims, both males and females, came forward. At that time he was facing six charges.

from non-members under a certain number of provisions under only some of the acts. Only 140 of the 260 eligible voters (57 per cent) cast ballots in the last election. It was the second general election under the TFN’s self-governance structure since the signing of the historic treaty.

In November of that year, Glendinning was arrested again and had three more charges added after two more alleged victims contacted investigators. Glendinning, 63, had a decade-long affiliation with the Tsawwassen Amateur Baseball Association between 1985 and 1995.

VAPOR wants Delta to take a stand on jet fuel plan

Richmond already opposed to idea BY




Al Hollinger presents a cheque to Veronica Carroll, Delta Hospital Foundation executive director, and nursing education staff at the hospital on Tuesday.

Resident of Delta Hospital’s extended care unit makes another significant donation One resident was recognized this week for his most recent contribution to Delta Hospital. Al Hollinger, who is a resident of Mountain View Manor, had a desire to help the hospital with nursing

education. His donation of $100,000 led to the creation of the Al Hollinger — Joan Rumsey Nursing Education Fund. The money will be used to help support nursing education by providing resourc-

es and training equipment for the hospital’s nursing education programs. “I thank all the nursing staff, all the staff down to the cleaning staff take care of me so why shouldn’t I take care of them,”

Hollinger said. This isn’t the first time Hollinger has made a sizable donation to the hospital. He donated $300,000 for the Forest For Our Future, a peaceful area on the hospital grounds.

Delta communities. In addition to the road race, it includes two criteriums. It’s part of B.C. Superweek, Canada’s biggest cycling series.

Delta council is asking for more information about the proposal to bring jet fuel up the Fraser River before taking a stand on the issue. Last week, representatives from Vancouver Airport Pipeline Opposition for Richmond (VAPOR) made a presentation about the group’s concerns about the proposal and asked Delta council to get on board with the City of Richmond in opposing the project. Owned by a consortium of airlines that use Vancouver International Airport, the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation is proposing to ship jet fuel to a tank farm that would be built on the Richmond side of the south arm of the Fraser. An underground pipeline would then send the fuel to YVR. Earlier this year, a Port Metro Vancouver report deemed the proposal an acceptable risk and stated the biggest risk of a fuel spill would come from a tanker striking something or running aground. “It’s really important that Delta no longer be silent,” said VAPOR president Carol Day. The group asked council to pass a resolution oppos-

ing the project. “This proposal is terrible, we have to stop it,” Day said. The group is advocating for a pipeline to move the jet fuel to the airport, saying it is a safer option. Mayor Lois Jackson voiced concerns that a pipeline would come straight through the municipality. Last year, the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office accepted a formal application for an environmental assessment of the proposed Vancouver Airport Fuel Delivery Project. While so far Delta has remained silent on the issue, a Delta staff member is part of an EAO working group on the proposal, along with other municipal, provincial and federal government representatives. At last week’s meeting, civic politicians approved a motion to send letters to the provincial and federal governments stating Delta has some concerns about the project and is opposed to it until council has a fuller understanding of what it will mean for the area. “We have a really big interest in keeping the rivers safe,” said Coun. Bruce McDonald. “I’m very, very concerned about these ships coming over the Deas Island Tunnel,” added Jackson.

Opinions fly over ‘facts’ regarding Southlands

Interest group demands retraction, apology from Delta after municipal hall claims it’s misleading the public BY


The war of words continues over the Southlands. Responding to recent comments and a critical letter by the municipality, the advocacy group Southlands the Facts is demanding a retraction and a public apology. In a press release issued this week, the group stated, “In one of their most egregious and biased steps yet taken by Delta, Mayor Jackson and her administration have stooped to

muzzling the community, claiming that Southlands the Facts is misleading the public.” Delta council agreed last week to send a letter to the group, which is opposed to a development proposal for the controversial Tsawwassen property, telling it to stop saying the Corporation of Delta has the power to stop greenhouses from being built on the land. That statement appears on flyers handed out by the group as well as on its website.

Coun. Robert Campbell last week called the statement “absolutely untrue” and that when it comes to the fats, Southlands the Facts is “making them up.” Last month, the municipality got legal opinions on the matter. In a report to council, municipal solicitor Greg Vanstone said the opinions indicate there is a significant risk and that attempting to limit farm uses on agricultural land could be challenged in court or its impact avoided by the property owner. However, Southlands

the Facts spokesperson Dana Maslovat this week reiterated that Delta has the ability to enact such bylaws, but Delta’s current position is another example of how staff and council are attempting to bypass due process around land use decisions. The group is also upset over an accusation by council that Southlands the Facts distributed a flyer, which was actually sent out by another local group. The other group, the Save the Southlands Committee, distributed a flyer titled

“Urgent Deadline to Save the Southlands,” which included a copy of Delta’s comment sheet for the development application. Municipal officials noted residents might think Delta distributed the flyer and issued a statement stressing the flyer is not a Corporation of Delta publication. “It is clear that Delta council are so out-of-touch with the community that they are not even aware of the various groups opposed to the decisions they are making on behalf of the

citizens of Tsawwassen,” responded Maslovat. The Century Group proposes to build 950 homes, while donating 80 per cent of the Southlands to Delta. Public comment forms that were available at a recent open house at the South Delta Recreation Centre, hosted by Delta, are due back today. Things are bound to get even more heated as council is to decide Dec. 17 whether staff should prepare a bylaw for first and second reading on the development application.

More than mail through slot


TAKE NOTICE THAT The Corporation of Delta (“Delta”) intends to adopt the ‘Scott Road Revitalization Bylaw No. 7142’. This bylaw offers municipal property tax exemptions, reduced development cost charges and municipal fee exemptions for eligible projects located in the Scott Road Economic Investment Incentive Zone, as shown on Schedule “A” map. The revitalization bylaw is intended to encourage investment in commercial and high-density residential developments, to enhance the attractiveness of the Scott Road corridor and to encourage sustainable development. The tax exemption program is available for a maximum period of three years for the following eligible projects: • An apartment or mixed-use building construction of ten storeys or more. • New commercial building with a construction value of $10 million or more. • Commercial renovations or improvements with a construction value of $5 million or more. The amount of municipal property tax exemption for an eligible project is equal to the difference of the amount between the current year’s annual property tax for the parcel, for land and improvements, and the annual property tax payable in the calendar year prior to the start of construction for the parcel, for land and improvements.

MURPHY’S LAW Like is so often the case when you get into a war of words, the truth in the battle between Delta and a citizens’ group opposed to Southlands development lies somewhere in the middle. If you haven’t been paying attention, the Corporation of Delta and Southlands the Facts have been in a spat over comments the advocacy group has made in relation to Delta’s ability to control farming uses on the Southlands. Southlands the Facts has stated that Delta has the power to prevent greenhouses from being built on the controversial piece of Tsawwassen real estate, a contention those over at municipal hall say is simply not accurate. It’s a black-and-white statement, so it should be easy enough to determine who is telling the truth and who is stretching it. It should be, but in this case it’s not. It appears that Southlands the Facts is on firm ground in stating that Delta has the legal right to pass nuisance bylaws that would restrict intensive farming practices such as greenhouses. There’s nothing preventing civic politicians from approving such legislation, so in the strictest sense of the word, the group is correct. However, and this is where the disagreement originates, there’s a distinct difference between adopting a bylaw and it holding up to the inevitable court challenge. Delta has received legal opinions that suggest any efforts to restrict greenhouses on the Southlands could result in a lengthy and costly court battle, one that could conclude with a substantial damage award against the municipality. So while Delta has the ability to restrict greenhouses, it would be, in the words of one high-ranking bureaucrat, “bad policy and bad law.” There’s no doubt the perception the interest group’s statements have created in the wider community has annoyed those over at municipal hall, however it’s hard to argue they’re incorrect. Yes, there should probably be a qualifier, a little asterisk denoting that lawyers believe Delta’s powers might not withstand a legal challenge, but I think I’m pretty safe in saying it’s not the first time, nor will it be the last, that a political brochure presents just one side of an argument. Delta is well within its rights to put forward its position when it comes to civic control of greenhouses on the Southlands, which it has already done, but I’m not so sure picking a fight with constituents over the semantics of a political statement is doing municipal hall much good.

Interesting, even mysterious, history found at local airport DOUG HUSBAND

COMMUNITY COMMENT My personal ramblings usually reflect back to Delta’s early history. I like to think it keeps me grounded and I hope it’s a chance for others to appreciate the underpinnings of our present lifestyle. Having paused to remember our fallen on Armistice Day brings memories of a bit of World War history located on the southeast corner of Highway 10 and 72nd Street in East Ladner. In 1941 the federal government purchased approximately 1,500 acres of farmland, first utilized as a civilian flying school. The site was quickly converted into cement runways and taken over by the RCAF as an operational training unit. The airport was home to a fighter squadron and Lancaster bombers assigned to protect B.C.’s coastal waters from possible invasion. As a youngster, I have memories of regular civilian training with air raid sirens, searchlights crisscrossing the night sky and full blackouts of homes. The station trained upwards

of 6,000 men yearly until the end of the war. The site was then transferred to the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals involved in electronic warfare during the cold war. A high chain link fence protected this facility with full security at its gated entry. Now known as the Vancouver Wireless Station, it functioned as a “monitoring” station from 1948 until closure in 1971. At its epicentre was a three-storey concrete facility located in the middle of the virtually abandoned airfields surrounded by a large antenna field. Searchlights prowled the surrounding fields and army vehicles continually checked the perimeter fencing. The property had its mystery with its fenced and gated community and its uniformed personnel protecting its electronic surveillance operation. Over time the station evolved into a community of its own with married and singles quarters, with social facilities, an administration centre, engineering and transport sections, and sports fields. A place of worship for Protestants and Catholics was established. A kindergarten and an elementary school for three grades was opened in 1950 and enlarged to five grades by 1953. Mrs. Sawatsky opened the first kindergarten and

Stella Husband was appointed the station’s first teacher in 1950 and later principal of the two-room school. Donna Lusignan joined the teaching staff in 1953 and later married Claude Tyson, an army man at the station. They were two of many who integrated into the Ladner community. Others that come to mind include the Sawatskys, Spooners, Vaughan-Smiths, Phillips and Rogers, to name but a few. No offence intended to others as I’m limited in space. Some of the largest fan base of amateur sport involved competition between Ladner and wireless station fastball and hockey teams. One of the airport hangars was converted to Delta’s first indoor hockey rink in the late 1950s. The Boundary Bay Airport is now a flourishing reminder of its past. The once-gated community shows its age and neglect as personnel and buildings are long removed. The infrastructure of roads, trees and some foundations remains. Delta’s heritage committee has done a good job with maps and photos showing the original layout. In the interim, the site is home to dog walkers, bird watchers and those interested in a little piece of Delta’s history. And a good night to you, Walter.

November 16, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor


New citizen exercises right

Editor: This past week I became a new citizen of Canada, so this week I am exercising one of my new rights, which is to express my opinion without fear of retribution. While I have been a resident of Canada for over a decade (and lived in Delta for half of that), gaining citizenship feels symbolic of my commitment to my communities and making Canada my home. At my ceremony, the presiding judge and a local councillor emphasized the rights and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship. In addition to our right to express our opinion, we were reminded of our responsibility as citizens to “do our part” in our local communities. As part of this model of civic engagement, we were also told the role of local governments was to represent its citizens when they

“do their part.” Being a resident of Tsawwassen, I could not help but think about this model of government in relation to Delta council’s handling of public engagement with the Southlands. And, I could not help but be struck by its failure in this context. Many Delta citizens, including myself, have done their part by attending the multiple meetings and public hearings and by expressing their opinions on this issue. And the majority of the community has said “no” to development on the Southlands for varying reasons. Yet the issue remains on the table and our government continues to ask us again and again to express our desires despite the strong support for keeping the land designated as agricultural. My concern about my

local government is deepened by a story in this week’s Optimist in which Delta council attacked a community organization, Southlands the Facts, which has gone above and beyond doing its part for the community and which has challenged council on keeping its facts transparent and straight. So, despite my gratitude for being granted citizenship in a country that has become my new home, my experience of local government leaves me with a feeling of disappointment about the ideology of democratic government in Delta and causes me to question what my rights as a citizen really mean. I can only hope that with this last round of data collection in which folks have (once again) done their part, Delta council does its part by representing the majority opinion. Ellexis Boyle

Veterans touched by gesture from young girls Cards of thanks delivered prior to Remembrance Day parade in Ladner mean a great deal to recipients The following is from veteran Andy John Catton: Last Sunday morning an event took place that was something me and my fellow veterans will never forget. While some of us waited on the sidewalk outside the Ladner Legion to form up for our march to Memorial Park, a number of young gals, I think they were Brownies, handed out handmade cards with words of thanks. I was so moved as were my fellow veterans that I wrote a verse of thanks. These lines I write are an appropriately

special thanks From those of us of lessening ranks We are your veterans of a bygone age Some 70 years passed since we were fighting so far from home Be it in the air or land or above or under that salty foam We sadly gather fewer of us than in past years Soon none of us from this wartime period will be here alas But it was as we stood waiting in the cold To form up and parade down the road

An Invitation 12th Annual

Light of Remembrance Service

We were approached by the very youngest of folk They handed us veterans handmade paper cards With words inside that truly touch our hearts These token of thanks we shall all hold so dear Of us folk now in our fading bygone years Many a veteran had a teary eye in that it cannot be denied But these token lifted many a heavy sadden heart that day As our minds were filled with thoughts about those so far away Who now lie in ageless sleep? Be it in the ground or in the waters dark and deep Knowing that as we get fewer by the

years Of deeds it is being thought of by so young That filled our hearts truly with cheer No words can express truly the heartfelt thanks By us bygone veterans in our diminishing ranks What we and our pals did was not in vain so long ago In that if they too were here today like us they just like to say Thank you, thank you once again for your thoughts In your handmade card touch many a veteran’s heart So much so I shall keep and may even frame So to you from us all it thank YOU once again

For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

Christmas is a season of tradition when families gather to celebrate and reflect on memories… Especially during this season, the loved ones who have died fill our hearts and thoughts.

Please Join Us for an Evening of Music and Reflection. Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm Cedar Park Church, 5300 44th Avenue, Ladner Refreshments will be served following this Memorial.

Legalizing marijuana opens the Ladies Night Thursday, November 22nd door to host of social problems



Optimist contributor

As part of the U.S. election last week, two states — Washington and Colorado — on state-wide ballots voted in favour of the legalization of marijuana that would make recreational use of the drug legal (although it is only a matter of time before the U.S. federal government steps in). I have to shake my head at such shortsighted thinking on the part of these two states. This September a majority of mayors here in B.C. voted to “decriminalize marijuana and research the regulation and taxation of marijuana.” It might be helpful to look at the difference between decriminalization and legalization. Decriminalization means that possession of a small amount of marijuana would be removed from the scope of criminal courts, but selling it would still be prosecuted. Legalization would involve implementing a system that allows the use and sale of drugs to adults under a system of regulation, probably similar to the way alcohol is sold. In order for governments to receive tax revenue, it would need to be legalized and in Canada this decision falls to the federal government. I would agree that possession of a small amount of marijuana should not be a criminal offence, however these days most police forces do not enforce the law and prosecute for possession unless there is an intention to sell it. I am quite OK with decriminalization but not legalization and I’d like to explain why. I am someone who has worked in the field of alcohol and drug abuse for 38 years. I am a recovered addict myself and have been clean and sober for 40 years. Five of seven of my immediate family members became addicts (four found recovery while my sister died in her addiction), and

Jim Stimson ity, and the cost of regulating and overseeing the growing, manufacturing and selling of it? Certainly the revenue governments receive from cigarettes and alcohol does not even begin to offset the enormous financial burden both of these legal substances place on society. People who support legalization also claim the current system helps organized crime reap big profits. Delta police Chief Jim Cessford has it right when he says, “It is a real stretch to believe decriminalizing marijuana would have any impact on gang shootings or other gang violence.” Organized crime is already involved in the business of growing and selling medical marijuana. And who is to say criminals aren’t going to continue to sell it underground. After all, they can sell it much cheaper as they won’t be charging all kinds of taxes. People in Colorado and Washington see legalization as a quick way to raise desperately needed tax revenue to help solve a financial crisis. I predict it will only cause a crisis of another kind. By making this dangerous, addictive and potentially lethal drug more easily available for our youth we put their lives and others at risk. We need to stop and think about the longterm consequences of our actions. I, for one, could never support the legalization of marijuana.

Lest we forget This past weekend, in schools on Friday and on Sunday at cenotaphs, places of worship and legion halls, hundreds of thousands of people engaged in acts of remembrance. As the number of Second World War vets declines, and the number of vets from Afghanistan increases, we as a nation show a resolve to remember the sacrifice people have made and still make for freedom and peace. Even with this resolve, we still need memory aids; poppies and the legion volunteers selling them are foremost in my mind. To be remembered is to be honoured. That applies to birthdays and to the more mundane daily living. Some may feel God has forgotten about them. “Never!” the Prophet Isaiah relates, “Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no

love for a child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would never forget you! See, I have written your name on my hand...” (Isaiah 49:13-16) Just as the poppy worn on the lapel helps us to remember, it is as if God has written our name on God’s hand. How many times have I done that! Jesus is God’s primary reminder to us that God remembers. The empty tomb, or cenotaph, is another. Jesus calls us to remember by coming together to celebrate The Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion. He said, “Whenever you eat this bread or drink this cup, you do it in memory of me.” (See 1 Corinthians 11:24-26). This is our primary memory aid to remember Jesus, the prince of peace, the author of our salvation.

Photo club showcases Eclectic work Members’ images featured in exhibition at Tsawwassen Arts Centre BY


A wide mix of photographic prints can be found at the Delta Photo Club’s show at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre this month. The exhibition, titled Eclectic, runs until Nov. 30. “The range and types of photos here is really interesting,” says club member Karoline Cullen, noting there are about 50 prints in the show. The club has around 100 members and about 30 of them have work on display. There’s a wide range interests, ability levels and techniques that are showcased “so we figured that ‘Eclectic’ would be a good umbrella over the very, very many different subject matters and styles that are included,” she notes. There are local images as well as shots from places like Galiano Island, Cambodia, Singapore, China, Hawaii and Panama. She says the show was a good opportunity for some of the club’s newer members to actually get a print made, matted, titled and submitted. Club president Karen Pacheco says the initiative behind holding the exhibit “began as a result of us wanting to have a better connection with the community.” The club is quite active and meets regularly at KinVillage in Tsawwassen. The Tsawwassen Arts Centre is located at 1172-56th St. Call 604-943-9437 for gallery viewing times. For more on the Delta Photo Club, including a meeting schedule, visit www.deltaphotoclub. com.

Local author signs book this weekend BY


Local author Daniel Joseph will be signing his first book, Me, My Dreams and I, at Black Bond Books in Ladner on Sunday.

Author Daniel Joseph explores the world of dreams in his first book Me, My Dreams and I. Joseph, 31, who has a book-signing event scheduled for Sunday in Ladner, became interested in sleeping and dreams after taking some psychology classes in college. “I decided to then start documenting my dreams so that I could try to learn more from them and basically it became an 18-month dream journal that I kept,” says Joseph, a Delta Secondary grad who grew up in Ladner and recently moved back to the community. The dream journal is included in the book in conjunction with his research on dreams. He released the book last year. It

“illustrates the synchronicity between dreams and reality while elaborating on what dreams could truly mean and how every individual can recall more of their dreams and greatly learn from them,” according to a press release. He said he has plans down the road to write a motivational-style book. “I would say that everyone should write a book. Everyone has a voice. Everyone has something to say, has a perspective that can offer some insight in some topic or element of life they can give their two cents about.” Joseph’s book-signing for Me, My Dreams and I is set for Sunday, Nov 18 at 1 p.m. at Black Bond Books in Trenant Park Square. He said the book is also available at Albany Books in Tsawwassen and Chapters in Metrotown. For more on his book visit www.

South Deltans Steve Dotto (right) and Jenna Grubaugh, shown here with Bod De Ramideos, are two of the local actors starring in Metro Theatre’s production of Lend Me A Tenor in Vancouver.

Local actors hit Metro stage Several long-term residents of Delta are making a splash at Vancouver’s Metro Theatre in Ken Ludwig’s comedy Lend Me A Tenor. Kat Stewart, Steve Dotto, Jenna Grubaugh and Catherine Morrison all play prominent roles in the show, none more so than Morrison who directs the fast-paced farce. “Comedy is hard, harder than you think,” says Morrison, who recently moved to Ladner. “Casting is everything, and if you get it right, 80 per cent of your job as a director is done,” says Morrison, who began her directing career over two decades ago. Lend Me A Tenor is set in the 1930s in Cleveland, where the Cleveland Grand Opera Company is celebrating its 10th anniversary by bringing in the world’s greatest living tenor to sing the title role of Otello at a gala. Things head off the rails when the tenor’s temperamental wife shows up, gets jealous of the attention being shown her husband by the company manager’s (Dotto) daughter (Grubaugh), and throws her

husband into a tailspin. Stewart, who plays the sultry, oversexed soprano in the opera, throws oil on the fire by trying to sleep her way to the top. Classic farce ensues with mistaken identity, double and even triple entendres, doors opening and closing at a frantic pace, and the audience laughing until their sides hurt. Stewart has appeared in several Metro shows as well as Sidekick Players Club productions in Delta. Grubaugh is appearing in her first show at Metro, but has also worked with Sidekick. Dotto makes a rare return to the stage. Best known for his long-running TV show Dotto Tech, Dotto has also occasionally worked with Sidekick, but his history with the Metro Theatre goes back to the 1970s. Metro is celebrating its 50th anniversary with Lend Me A Tenor, which runs Thursday to Saturday until Dec. 1. There are also matinees on Sunday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 25.

The Delta Youth Orchestra’s 17th annual Classical Cabaret concert takes place Sunday. The event will be held in Richmond and will include the orchestra performing with Infinitus, a string trio. “The interesting thing about their music is it’s really out of the box. It’s really a synthesis of pop styles along with classical styles. They’re playing classical ideas with more jazz

and rock-based rhythms,” says DYO music director Stephen Robb. Infinitus is made up of John Littlejohn (violin), Anthony Cheung (viola) and Alex Cheung (cello). Littlejohn is also a faculty member at the Delta Community Music School. The group formed in 2008 and has been broadcast on OMNI/CityTV, CBC as well as National Public Radio, their website states. Sunday’s concert will also feature Franz Joseph

Haydn’s London Symphony No. 101 (the Clock). The event also includes a silent auction and is the DYO’s major fundraiser for the 2012-2013 season.

Christina was hanging around a families home for a few weeks, one day they went into their shed and found her in there with her babies. Miss Christina was brought in to the shelter with 5 female 6 week old kittens (which we are happy to say are all spoken for) Christina is a very sweet cat that enjoys looking out the window and gazing at the birds. We would love to find her a primarily indoor home (so she doesn't wander out to far and get lost) where she can be safe, happy and loved!

The three-week run of the Sidekick Players Club’s production of Ethan Claymore began last night at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre. Written by Norm Foster and directed for Sidekick by Carroll Lefebvre, Ethan Claymore is a struggling egg farmer and widower

that has given up on ever finding love and laughter again. With a lot of nudging from his needling neighbour Douglas, who’s determined to hitch him up again, and a surprise visit from his recently deceased brother, the used car salesman Martin, Ethan finds his


world brightens just in the nick of time. Returning to the Sidekick stage for Ethan Claymore are Todd-Elliot Gates as Ethan, Mark East as Martin, John Kevener as Douglas, Lisa Gach as Teresa, Jeremy Parks as Young Martin and, making his debut, Gabriel Wallace as Young Ethan.

The play will run from Nov. 15 to Dec. 1 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings only) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors (60+) and students (12 to 18). Seating is bistro-style and is limited. Call 604288-2415 to reserve a seat.

Interval training key to running faster Well on Your Way


ou’ve heard the joke about two hikers in the woods that encounter a bear. One turns around to start running away from it and his friend yells at him, “What are you doing? You can’t outrun a bear.” The runner turns around and replies, “I know I can’t run faster than the bear, I just have to run faster than you!” It’s a tale of speed, and the faster one always wins, or in this case doesn’t get eaten. So, what if you are a runner and are looking to get faster. What do you do? There is a lot of conflicting advice out there, so let me uncomplicate the issue for you. First off, to run faster you must, well, run faster. Do not log in the miles, just for the sake of getting a certain weekly mileage in. I call these junk miles,

and they won’t help you get faster. Instead, you need short bursts of quick speed, accompanied by periods of active rest, for a set number of reps. We call these intervals in the industry, and they are the tried and true method of improving any run time — from a 10-kilometre to a marathon. Kevin Ridley, owner of our local running store, the RunInn, says proper running form is just as important as weekly speed work. There is a correct way to run, which will help you become more efficient with your stride and cause a minimal amount damage to the body. Let’s face it, running produces the equivalent force of two to three times your body weight on your joints, and if done incorrectly, you will spend more time on your physio’s table than on the road performing your favourite sport. Your form, while running, is best evaluated at a track, and Ridley’s group coaches that every Thursday night at the South Delta Secondary track ( If you can’t make it out to one of his clinics, then

grab a friend and ask them to film you while running around your local track. When you view the footage, take a look from head to toe at the following: • The position of your head – You should be looking straight ahead, without jutting the chin forward. • Your shoulders – They should be relaxed and level. I see a lot of runners with shoulders hunched up to their ears, or even worse, rolled forward. • Your arms – Hands should be in unclenched fists with arms swinging naturally by your side, not across your body. • Your torso – You should be running tall. Think of your torso as a big sleeping bag and someone just zipped you up. • Your hips – They should be pointing straight ahead and kept quiet. One of the tricks I was taught (way back when I was taking my personal trainer’s course) is to think of your pelvis as a full water bucket, and then try not to spill any water out of the sides. • Your lower body – Your knees should lift slightly, not too high, with your feet landing directly under your hips and each foot landing

mile pace, you would run at an eight-minute mile pace for the interval, which would be two minutes per 400 metres. I have a workout I love to do on my treadmill to help me improve my 10-kilometre time. I warm up for 10 minutes with a light jog and then I increase my speed two miles-per-hour faster than what I normally run comfortably at on the treadmill (I run with ease at six mph, so my interval speed is eight mph). I run this for two minutes and then decrease my speed back to my easy pace (of

He runs for 400 metres (once around the track), followed by a 100- to 150metre walk/jog recovery. He does so six to eight times. He claims the goal of the workout should be to run the 400-metre repeat at about one minute faster than your regular running pace. For example, if you normally train at a nine-minute

Volunteers (from left) Gordon Lockhart, Diana Dickey and Deb Robson get ready for the upcoming Realtors Care Blanket Drive.

Realtors collecting blankets and more in annual drive

It’s time to do some “winter cleaning” of your closets to support the Realtors Care Blanket Drive. The 18th annual program will run from Nov. 26 to Dec. 3 across the Lower Mainland, including South Delta. The eight-day campaign collects enough gently used blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothing and jackets, in addition to new socks and underwear, to help protect about 20,000 vulnerable people in the region from the cold, wet winter. Of the 35 charities in the region that benefit from the blanket drive, the Richmond Salvation Army is amongst those that receive a signifi-

cant volume. For years, it has received enough donations to help provide warm clothing during the winter for an increasing number of clients. “Without the donations from the blanket drive, we would not be able to provide essential clothing and blankets to many families in our community,” said Maj. Mary Smith, pastor. “Unfortunately, the demand becomes greater each year, especially where children are concerned.” Donations stay within the communities in which they are donated, or if the volumes are too large, go to charities in greatest need in neighbouring communities. Since 1995, the blanket

drive has supported at least 185,000 people. New or gently used items accepted include blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothing (coats, jeans, pants and sweaters) as well as scarves, gloves, mitts and hats. New socks and underwear are also accepted. Drop-off locations in South Delta are as follows: • RE/MAX Progroup Realty - 100-5000 Bridge St., Ladner • RE/MAX Progroup Realty - 1559-56th St., Tsawwassen • Royal LePage Regency Realty - 1333-56th St., Tsawwassen • Sutton Group-Seafair Realty - 1625-56th St., Tsawwassen

Builders brighten season through Coats for Kids

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association has launched its 17th annual Coats for Kids campaign in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, a group whose outreach helps to provide a brighter Christmas for families in need. Thirty-eight member companies at 64 locations in 14 municipalities, including Delta, will serve as coat drop-off sites from Nov. 19

to Dec. 7. “Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,” said Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association chair Blake Hudema. “I am delighted so many

members of our association are participating in this annual initiative,” said Hudema. Drop-off locations for Coats for Kids in Delta are as follows: • Best Builders Ltd. — 1338-56 St., Tsawwassen, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Taymor Industries Ltd. — 1655 Derwent Way, Annacis Island, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Food for Families drive lets Thrifty Foods customers help South Delta Food Bank Thrifty Foods’ annual Food For Families food drive began this week in all its 29 stores, including its Tsawwassen location. “The program provides Thrifty Foods customers with the option of adding a $5, $10 or $20 Food For Families gift voucher to their grocery order, funds that are then transformed into fresh groceries for

those in need in our communities,” says Thrifty Foods general manager Jim Dores. “What impresses me so much is that our customers — who have families of their own to feed — come forward each year and reach out to provide complete strangers with access to nutritious and wholesome food during the holidays.”

In 2011, the Food For Families fundraiser provided $206,000 to local food banks and has provided over $800,000 since the program began. The annual fundraiser supports the South Delta Food Bank along with 15 other food banks in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and on Saltspring Island.

Get Ready for Winter Driving Brakes The brakes must be faultless and equalized so there is no pulling to one side, which may cause skidding.

Engine A diagnostic check-up of the engine can be a good pre-winter investment. If you’re for a tune-up, have it done before winter sets in. Faulty wiring, worn spark plugs, a sticking choke or emission control devices that need attention, can all lead to hard starting.

Cooling System If it hasn’t been done in a while, have your cooling system flushed out with a good chemical cleaner and put in fresh anti-freeze. Check containers, belts, hoses, the pressure caps and thermostat. Battery and Electrical System Cold weather is hard on batteries. If your battery is several years old, have it checked. Be sure connections are clean and light.

Fuel System Make sure there is plenty of gas in your tank at all times. A full tank minimizes condensation, which may cause gas line freezing. Add gasoline antifreeze occasionally.

Preparing your car during Winter Owner


Oil and Filter Dirty oil can give you trouble in the winter, so change the oil and filter. Check the other filters, including the fuel, air and transmission filters. Tires Snow tires increase traction in soft snow. Install them on all four wheels. All-season tires on all wheels with good treads are adequate in some regions. Check your tire pressure regularly - for every 5 C of temperature drop, tire pressure goes down by one pound. O

Your Automotive Repair Guide

We could also recommend the following car care is to help avoid any unpleasant surprises:

%$! #""

• Brakes should be inspected and if replacement is required the brake fluid should also be flushed at the same time. Brake fluid over time absorbs moisture which will degrade braking performance and in extreme situations also cause brake failure. As a rule of thumb change brake fluid every 2-3 years.

-"*# *#( 4(3*"23 2& *#", 1)%

• Windshield wipers should be replaced at this time annually to ensure clear visibility. Remember to place your ice scraper in your vehicle.

Lights should be checked and any burnt out bulbs replaced. The majority of our driving between November and March is during near dark conditions. If you notice your lights are not pointing 2-3 car lengths ahead of you or the beam appears to head off in another direction you should have the lights checked for alignment.


(;";30$ 0)+! 3;:0'3/

• Coolant should be checked to ensure that it contains at least a 50-50 mix of anti-freeze and water. The system should be flushed at regular intervals as specified in your owners manual.



Heaters, Defrosters and Wipers Have them checked to make sure they are operational. Install winter wiper blades and use cold weather washer fluid. Ensure your windshield can give you clear vision of the road and traffic around you.

Along with insuring that your tires are properly inflated, have adequate tread depth (70% or approximately 6/32") and are at least All Season M+S rated we recommend that four winter tires be installed. Although we do not have as severe winters as other places in Canada the one or two severe winter storms that do affect us each year cause havoc on our roads and having 4 winter tires ensures that you have the maximum traction available under any conditions.

New-look Escape is packed with features DAVID CHAO & BOB MCHUGH


The 2013 Ford Escape is a complete makeover that will impress even the most critical car enthusiasts. It is packed with features and drives significantly better than its predecessor, not to mention it is more fuel efficient too. A unibody platform shared with a European Ford called “Kuga” underpins the new Escape. All three engine choices have four cylinders; the V6 Escape is history. There’s also a host of technology upgrades to improve performance, safety, multi-media features and reduce its environmental impact. A 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine that offers more power plus 30 per cent better fuel economy replaces the 3.0-litre V6. Lighter and more compact, the turbocharged Ecoboost engine comes with direct fuel injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing. A smaller 1.6-litre Ecoboost engine comes in the mid trim range SE version of the Escape and the base S trim comes with a conventional, tried and true 2.5-litre, which is a holdover engine from the previous generation Escape. All engines are mated with a new six-speed automatic transmission with both sport and manual addition modes of operation. The new Escape also offers a uniquely different kind of hands-free technology. A kicking action by the key-fob holder, under the rear bumper, can open or close the power operated rear door. It’s a handy way to access the cargo area when you`re carrying something. The door opening is triggered by motion-sensing technology similar to that used in video games. Discarded plastic bottles are a major environmental pollution issue and Ford has found a way to use them in the manufacture of carpets inside the new Escape. This initiative alone is expected to recycle four million plastic bottles annually, according to Ford. In addition, all

the sound dampening and seat cushion materials are also made from recycled materials. Advanced tech features available include an active park assist system that can detect and then automatically steer the Escape into a parallel parking space. There’s also a blind spot vehicle detection system that comes with cross-traffic alert, which is a valuable aid when reversing blindly out of a parking stall. The last generation Escape was the most popular compact SUV sold in all of North America and a hybrid engine version was also available. Ford has not yet announced a hybrid successor, which is a little disappointing. Style: Quite a change from the straightforward two-box shape of the previous Escape. The new model is almost 10 per cent more aerodynamic and has an aggressive frontal appearance with shape angles, a steeply raked windshield and gaping lower grille openings. The Ecoboost engine versions also conceal an innovation behind the blacked-out lower grille. Sensor-controlled shutters regulate air entering the engine bay to improve its aero efficiency and achieve optimum fuel mileage. The new Escape’s body is lighter yet 40 per cent more rigid than its predecessor. Dual exhaust pipes are standard, the large rear door is a wrap-over design that allows a lower lift-in height, but the rear-end styling is an overly busy one to my eyes. Inside: A wrap-around cockpit greets the driver and the centre stack of the dash houses a new layout MyFordTouch. I’ve had issues with the sensitivity and function of MyFord Touch in the past, but this is arrangement is much better and looks somewhat similar to Nissan’s multi-media set-up. Rear seat legroom is pretty good and climate control in the rear is also standard in all but the base S model. Cargo space is also excellent with 97 litres

(34.3 cu ft) behind the 60/40 split rear seat. It folds completely flat at the pull of a lever by the seat cushion and increases cargo

space to 193 litres (68.1 cu ft). The rake of the rear seatback is also adjustable. See ESCAPE page 30

The 2013 Escape is more aerodynamic than previous models.

Secure: Escape now comes with seven (instead of six) air bags. There’s an additional knee air bag to protect and position the driver better. The side air bags on the front seats also have a unique feature that allows them to adapt to the size of a seat occupant. Drive: I drove an Escape with the 1.6-litre and another with the 2.0-litre engine. Most buyers will be completely satisfied with the smaller engine, unless they

pack a lot of heavy stuff or people around on a regular basis, or tow a trailer. That said, the difference in fuel economy is not huge. Transmission operation is busier with the smaller engine, but the overall noise level is impressively quiet. In fact, cabin quietness is akin to the low level of hush that you’ll only find in far more expensive vehicles. Both of my Escapes also came with the all-wheel-

Although it possesses some off-road capabilities, this vehicle is more at home on a paved road. It’s where the Escape’s Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control systems stand out. Basically these are active, more advanced and quicker acting forms of stability control and they even use the same module to monitor performance. The transmission’s manual mode is a thumb operated toggle switch on the side of the shift lever, instead of those sporty paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The toggle switch is surprisingly good and easy to operate, and better suits this type of vehicle. Apparently the all-wheeldrive system can analyze data 20 times faster than you can blink an eye and the transmission’s torque converter comes with a new and improved electromagnetic clutch. Sum-up: Dramatically different yet perfect for this point in time, the trimmer and more fuel efficient new Ford Escape is packed with advanced technologies and without doubt another winner.

Tsaw. Legion donation helps to purchase heart monitors The Delta Hospital Foundation recently received a $4,000 donation from the Tsawwassen Legion to help to purchase two Holter monitors. The specialized equipment will allow residents of Delta to be monitored for heart disease in their own community. The monitor diagnoses heart rhythm disturbances, specifically the cause of palpitations or dizziness. It is a small recording device that is connected to a patient’s chest by small metal disks. Worn over a 24-hour period, the information gathered is downloaded to a computer and analyzed to find out what is causing the arrhythmia. Legion president Bob Wilkinson and executive member Lloyd Adams were pleased to present Delta Hospital Foundation corporate and event manager Jackey Zellweger with the cheque.

In the last three years the Tsawwassen Legion has pledged $1,000 per month to the Delta Hospital Foundation and have contributed in excess of $50,000 to the cause. The Foundation raises funds to provide access to the best medical services close to home. Since 1988, it has raised over $25 million.

Family says thanks with walk-a-thon

Event to benefit Royal Columbian as a way to give back to hospital that cared for premature triplets BY


A Ladner family is organizing a walk-a-thon tomorrow to benefit the Royal Columbian Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. “The biggest thing is we’re just trying to give back,” said Ron Van Marrewyk. Ron and his wife Stephanie’s two-and-a-halfyear-old triplet daughters Shauna, Paige and Andy were born at 29 weeks gestation and weighed between two and three pounds each. “We found out at 22 weeks that Shauna was having problems with her umbilical cord. That was the start of our worries,” Ron said. “When we finally found out that she was having reversed flow in her umbilical cord that’s when we had to have the emergency C-section for all three.” The triplets were eventually transferred to Royal Columbian Hospital where they were discharged about

three months after being born. “We felt so blessed to be surrounded by amazing nurses and doctors, and even though we suffered through some very scary times, the love, care and medical treatment we received from RCH’s staff truly is unforgettable,” the family stated in an online event posting. The couple also has a five-year-old daughter Renee. The Christmas 5-km Walk-a-thon takes place at the Neilson Grove Elementary school field, 5500 Admiral Blvd. The walk starts at 10:30 a.m. while registration goes from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. There will be activities, like Christmas-inspired crafts and face painting, before and after the walk while refreshments will be available afterwards. For more information or to donate online visit www. and click on events to locate the walka-thon.

Valley title latest conquest for Devils South Delta shows why its ranked No. 1 in the province with dominant performance in Langley BY

Local Tides Pacific Standard Time. Height in feet


The South Delta Sun Devils weren’t kidding when they said this season is their best opportunity to win the school’s first-ever provincial senior girls volleyball championship. Since mapping out their expectations back in September, the Sun Devils have been methodically conducting their business with another milestone reached on Wednesday night at the Langley Events Centre. For the first time in school history, the Sun Devils are Fraser Valley “AAAA” champions after an impressive 3-1 (25-19, 25-18, 16-25, 25-21) win over the Heritage Woods Kodiaks. The result came two weeks after they took over the No. 1 spot in the provincial rankings with their win at the Red Surge Classic at Riverside secondary. The Valley triumph also means South Delta has won three tournaments in the last four weeks, dating back to its victory at Pacific Academy. The only thing left is the provincial “AAAA” championships, slated for two weeks from now in Port Coquitlam where the Sun Devils have clearly established themselves as the team to beat. Against the No. 3 Kodiaks, they got off to a terrific start and took a commanding two set lead before the Port Moody school was able to extend the match. The Sun Devils opened up a 16-12 lead in game four

Tournament two months earlier that saw Heritage Woods prevail in five games. “The first two games, we looked awesome,” said Devils coach Dan Burgess. “But we were pretty confident Heritage wasn’t going to just give it to us. We got a little bit of an edge from the first couple of games and made some hay when we could.” The challenge for Burgess and cocoach Sandra Nash was getting their girls to respond after the Kodiaks had swung momentum with an impressive game three performance. Nash says it was just a matter of getting re-energized after a long day in the classroom and on the volleyball court. South Delta played its semi-final game against Elgin Park, at 4 p.m. at another venue, and the gold medal

match didn’t start until nearly 9 p.m. “My sense was their bodies were just tired,” said Nash. “They had to decide they wanted it at that point. It was a matter of getting over that tiredness and convincing themselves they had it in them to do it.” The tournament all-star awards proved why the Sun Devils considered this year was their best chance to make some noise as Grade 12 setter Emma Robinson was named tournament MVP, while Grade 10 twins Nicole and Megan McNamara were selected as all-stars. The team also includes: Hunter McLean, Emma Glennon, Carly Johannson, Sheima Rezai, Megan McKenzie, Christine Howlett, Lauren Shirley, Samantha Loiselle, Courtney Bogress, Anika Klassen and junior call-up Cassidy Pearson.

Johnson & Stewart help UBC win CIS soccer title

For the second straight week a South Delta athlete has scored the winning goal to clinch a national championship for a UBC sports team. Just seven days after Sara McManus’ hat trick performance lead the Thunderbirds to a CIS field hockey title, Steve Johnson provided similar heroics on the soccer pitch. His goal in the eighth minute of the play was all the UBC men’s team would need for a 1-0 victory over the Cape Breton Capers. The fourth-year striker skillfully deflected the ball over Cape Breton goalkeeper Andrew Murphy after a free kick was taken by Marco Visintin from 35- Reynold yards out. The triumph in Quebec City marked the 12th Sam Davidson Memorial Trophy triumph for the Thunderbirds, eight more than any other program. UBC dominated throughout the tournament, outscoring their opponents 8-0 in total, including a 4-0 quarter-final victory over New Brunswick on Thursday and a 3-0 shutout of host Laval in

Friday’s semis. Johnson was named to the tournament all-star team and was joined by another South Delta secondary graduate — Reynold Stewart. He was prominent in a playmaking role against New Brunswick, registered three assists, including a goal from Johnson in the sixth minute of play. Stewart then added an insurance goal in the 81st minute against Laval on a set-up from Johnson. He also nearly found the back of the net in the final, forcing Murphy to make a terrific save on a header in the 19th Stewart minute. A week earlier UBC captured the Canada West championship, en route to an unbeaten season. “I’m really proud of my boys and the way they battled today and throughout this tournament. History was made today, as we were undefeated this season. It’s a real pleasure to work with this group,” said UBC coach Mike Mosher said.

Delta gymnast wins scholarship Delta Gymnast Sara Marlowe was among 75 recognized at Gymnastics B.C.’s annual award banquet. Marlowe was among four recipients of the organization’s $500 scholarship award, joining Rebecca Flynn, Joanna Wong and Emily Knuudgards.

Among other highlights of the evening, was a standing ovation for Brittany Rogers for her amazing comeback from injury. She won the 2012 Kate Richardson Outstanding Athlete of the Year Award and was honoured for her contributions to Canada’s history making Olympic gymnastics team.




UBC’s Steve Johnson battles for possession with a Cape Breton Capers opponent during the CIS men’s soccer national championship game last Sunday in Quebec City. The fourth-year forward from Tsawwassen scored in the eighth minute to give UBC a 1-0 victory.

He was well known for his humour, ability to tell great stories, creativity and making friends wherever he went. Special thanks to Dr Ed Lerner and Delta Palliative and Community Care staff.

Patrick T. Mathews

May 25th, 1923 – November 8th, 2012

To My Dad You were the first man I loved as a little girl and the measure of all others to come. Strong and tall in your air force uniform, you protected me and kept me safe. A pilot, a carpenter, a mechanic, a gardener, a fisherman…. you could fix anything, do anything! You cared for me and made me toys, a doll house, a dolly cradle, special water skiis for tiny feet, a chalkboard that I would draw princesses and castles on and write I love you Daddy! You held me when I was sick and taught me things all little girls should know, how to fish, dig in the dirt, hammer a nail and whistle, but most importantly have manners and act like a lady. You made me wonder at the beauty of nature, at what might be beyond the stars! As I grew you were always there when I needed you …cars breaking down, leaks, repairs, and I learned to cook experimenting my recipes on you. You took me flying and gave me wings when I needed to leave you. You held my babies ‘Our girls’ you called them and helped me through troubled times. Then you were no longer so tall and strong… and I cared for you through your troubled times. I tried to protect you and keep you safe. I cooked for you, made repairs and brought you flowers to cheer you up. I held you when you were sick and when you were ready …I watched god give you wings to go to your beloved Joyce knowing this is where you want to be. Thank you for the gift of time spent with you. Thank you for all the fond memories, your words of wisdom, moments of tears and laughter. Thank you for being my Dad! Give Mom a kiss from me. All my love, I miss you too! Laura Love also to Papa from Lara, Rielle, Sasha, Celia, Elsie, Marie and Bella. I wish to thank Laura and all the Nurses, all the Care Aides, and all the staff at KinVillage for the gift of helping us with all their kind care, they are true angels on earth!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: You change focus midweek, from curiosity to understanding, from secrets and research to “knowing.” Your philosophical, compassionate, “we are one” side lifts you to new heights of understanding, new gentle regions of insight. A love affair might lie on the near-term horizon. Travel, education, law or media are strongly favoured late week into late December – these pursuits might lead you to a new affair. Sunday/Monday are hopeful, friendly – you’re happy. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday eve onward. Start NOTHING new this week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Midweek’s the pivot: on Wednesday you slowly turn from surface relationships to deep, committed ones, or to a split. It’s an all-ornothing time. Luck occurs if you view “secondary results,” follow clues, and patch together events/ options. This applies especially in areas of intimacy, sexual desire, finances and partnership money, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle change. E.g., an investment might not be obvious, but if you look at what you already possess, or the industry that signs your paycheque, you find a good investment. Wishes come true midweek. Start NOTHING new. Gemini May 21-June 20: One last week of delay, potential mistakes and wrong directions or false starts. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. The focus of your days changes midweek, from a past month of work, boredom, and health concerns, to the weeks ahead, which hold new horizons, opportunities, exciting meetings and new faces, relocation potentials, negotiations, contracts, dealings with the public, and “fame.” Sunday/Monday are wise, loving, intellectual. Be ambitious, dutiful Tuesday/Wednesday – you are starting to sense your “new career.” Wish fulfillment, popularity, flirtations late week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of pleasure, beauty, charming children and romance comes to an end midweek (Tuesday to Thursday) – a gentle end, filled with understanding – and a deeper or higher love. Wednesday begins a month of work, duties, dependents’ care, health and nutrition factors. But DO NOT start any new projects/tasks, relationships or ventures before Nov. 26. Mysteries, clues, research – and financial or sexual consequences – arise Sunday/Monday. Be wary of making a commitment. Thursday night to Saturday piques your ambition and brings situations of status, prestige. Careful Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no new projects nor relationships before Nov. 26. A month of domestic, realty,security,retirement,foundational and nutritional concerns yields, Wednesday, to a month of romance, pleasure, beauty, expansion, self-expression, speculation and venturesome risk. Take those risks – you’ll be on a four-week winning streak. (But read the first sentence again.) Sunday/Monday brings relationships, co-operation or challenge (luckiest Sunday eve/night). Midweek cracks open the door to mystery – and golden answers. Wisdom, gentle love, far travel and education arrive late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A busy month ends Wednesday, and a slow, restorative, relaxing, domestic month begins. However, start nothing new before Nov. 26. This week might disrupt your investments or bank account (Thursday/Friday) – there is both an opportunity (before 7:30 p.m. Thursday) and a danger here (7:30 p.m. to Friday morning). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – success and frustrations mingle. Relationships face you Tuesday to Thursday – this interval is almost wholly good, even magical, but deception or miscalculation is possible where home, family or residence enters. Finances, sex late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of money matters and sensual attractions ends Wednesday. The new month will feature paperwork, reports, errands, media and mail projects, travel, casual friends and siblings. There are no huge stakes – so be busy but relaxed. An opportunity can arise to travel afar, be published, teach or attend higher learning, win a lawsuit, or fall in love, even wed. But listen. Libra: start NOTHING before Nov. 26. Until then, till the field of the past. Sunday/Monday are romantic, accent pleasure. Midweek brings chores. Relationships, new horizons intrigue late week – be careful. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy remains high, but the accent shifts now from your personal concerns to your money and possessions. In the weeks ahead, chase new clients, seek a pay raise, buy/sell, and pursue, if you dare, a sensual person. (Daring will be the least requirement early: this is a friendly, polite, easy link. The daring part is being sure enough about your future and your desires to commit to this easy, but perhaps mild, bond.) DON’T start anything new before Nov. 26. Early week is for home. Tuesday-Thursday is romantic, creative. Work, health late week – caution Friday morn. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Wednesday ends a month of weariness, health concerns, weighty chores and low charisma. The weeks ahead feature high energy, clout, magnetism and effectiveness. Call in markers, seek favours, start significant projects (NOT before the 26th). Launch yourself toward a person, partnership, faraway place, fame, public dealings, negotiations, contracts and agreements. Your luck and progress will come through another (others generally) so be charming, eager and opportunistic. If someone gives you an opening, seize it. Love, beauty Friday.

Nov. 18 - 24, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A celebratory air fades midweek, as a month of duty, management demands, health concerns and weariness, begins. In the weeks ahead, be charitable, seek a broader spirituality, and co-operate with government, institutions and large corporations. However, don’t start anything, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Details, paperwork, errands, trips, communications and casual meetings fill midweek. Spiritual, governmental matters worry, but social/love urges inspire you. Domestic concerns need caution Thursday late night, confidence Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pressures ease. A month of ambition and tests yields to a month (starting Wednesday) of friends, popularity, light romance (which can turn deeper) entertainment and optimism. Don’t start anything new (including relationships) before Nov. 26.Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (better after 2 p.m. Sunday) – get things done. Chase money, protect possessions midweek. You might be confused about a money matter: success lies in rethinking it from a career perspective (or a boss’s, parent’s). Talk, travel, driving fill Thursday eve to Saturday: take care Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A thoughtful month passes Wednesday, and a new one, of pressure and deadlines, ambition and career, reputation and authority, will begin. You’ll be tested, and your reactions noted. This week, hold to the status quo – start nothing before Nov. 26. (Your thinking’s too fuzzy – though loving – until then.) Rest, lie low and contemplate Sunday/ Monday. Your energy and charisma soar TuesdayThursday. Chase money Thursday eve and Friday after mid-morn – be careful in-between. From midweek into mid-December, travel, law, higher education and cultural venues favour you, bring joy.
