Totem comes down at museum Pole, which is more than 80 years old and posed a safety risk, has been moved temporarily to TFN BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

The totem pole in front of the Delta Museum in Ladner Village came down this week. On Thursday morning, a crew worked to secure the totem pole, which is more than 80 years old, before detaching the base and lifting it onto a flat bed truck. Tsawwassen First Nation interim CAO Tom McCarthy said the totem pole was then taken to the TFN Longhouse where it will be temporarily stored until a permanent resting place is chosen. McCarthy said the TFN is consulting with its elders and the Snuneymuxw First Nation, a Coast Salish group in Nanaimo, to determine what should happen to the aging totem pole. Snuneymuxw First Nation Chief Wilkes James carved the totem pole in 1931. It was carved from a large cedar tree felled in North Delta and presented to the Corporation of Delta in the summer of 1932. The five figures represent the journey of Tsaatsen, Tsawwassen’s first settler. James carved the pole as a memento of his wife’s Tsawwassen roots.

The totem pole that has stood in front of the Delta Museum building on Delta Street in Ladner Village since 1931 was removed yesterday morning. However, more than 80 years exposed to the elements took their toll and earlier this year the

municipality made the decision the totem pole had to come down due to safety concerns.

Fire at Roberts Bank coal port puts one berth out of commission until middle of next week BY

Black smoke coming from a small fire at Westshore Terminals Tuesday afternoon could be seen from several areas around South Delta.

Black smoke could be seen for several kilometers after a fire broke out at the Westshore Terminals coal port earlier this week. Vice-president and general manager Denis Horgan said the small fire started on a conveyor belt on a loader at one of the ter-

minal’s two berths just after 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Delta Fire Department crews responded and the fire was out about 30 minutes later, he said. No one was injured as a result of the fire and the cause is still under investigation. The berth will be out of commission until next Wednesday while it undergoes repairs, Horgan said.

It is the same berth that was damaged when a ship crashed into it late last year. On Dec. 7, the Panama-registered and Japanowned bulk carrier Cape Apricot crashed into a causeway, destroying about 100 metres of the structure. The berth was out of commission for several weeks while the area was cleaned up and the conveyor belt repaired.

Leery about bulk liquid at port Civic officials have concerns about oil or LNG being shipped through Roberts Bank despite port denials BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

Delta’s CAO and mayor remain convinced Roberts Bank is being eyed as a future export hub for crude oil and liquefied natural gas, despite the denials by Port Metro Vancouver. George Harvie went over a report Monday he prepared for Delta council summarizing his recent fact-finding trip to Norway with Mayor Lois Jackson to visit liquid bulk products handling and shipping facilities. They were part of a delegation that included port officials, petroleum companies, First Nations, local and provincial governments, environmental groups and others. Harvie and Jackson joined the tour with two issues of concern: the potential development of a bulk liquid handling facility at Roberts Bank, including the associated shipment of petroleum products by rail, and the potential development of LNG facilities along the Fraser River. “The port has stated that they do not have any plan for transporting liquid bulk products at Deltaport at this time. It always worries me when they say ‘at this time,’” Harvie said. He noted that when the federal government approved the Deltaport expansion in 1980, the approval was subject to sev-

The recent disaster in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, that saw much of the town destroyed following the derailment and explosion of a train carrying crude oil, is heightening concern over the possibility something similar could occur here if Roberts Bank becomes an oil export hub. eral conditions, one being that no bulk liquids would be shipped from Roberts Bank. That condition was written into the National Harbours Board regulations specific to Roberts Bank, however, the harbours board was disbanded in 1983, replaced with port authorities across the country. Harvie said regulatory authority for approving new facilities on port land

currently rests with Port Metro Vancouver, as is the case with the application by Surrey Fraser Docks to handle American thermal coal. Harvie also noted that the recent abolition of the Fraser River Estuary Management Program (FREMP) has resulted in Port Metro Vancouver being primarily responsible for environmental reviews for

projects involving in-stream and shore works. Council agreed to ask the provincial government to respond to concerns the port authority is singularly responsible for undertaking environmental reviews and approving development on port property, including bulk liquid facilities. In a letter to the federal ministers of transport and environment, Jackson noted

petroleum industry stakeholders expressed interest in the transportation of crude oil from Alberta by rail to Deltaport, and that the port authority wasn’t able to provide firm assurances it wouldn’t be interested in developing a bulk liquid facility. “Considering the dangers associated with the transportation of petroleum products by rail, which was

tragically evidenced by the recent catastrophe in LacMegantic, Quebec, we are seeking the government’s confirmation that it remains committed to the protection of our environment through the continued exclusion of bulk liquid commodities at Roberts Bank terminal,” she wrote. Delta council is also putting forward a motion at this year’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention calling on the province to initiate discussions with the federal government and municipalities regarding the reinstatement of an independent agency to coordinate environmental review processes for in-stream and shoreline work. An initiative is now underway by Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway to eventually deliver huge amounts of crude, dubbed the “pipeline on rails” plan. Deltaport just happens to have direct rail connections to Alberta. Meantime, Port Metro Vancouver is proposing to establish a “Centre of Excellence for Marine Transportation of Oil and LNG Commodities in British Columbia.” However, in an interview last month, Duncan Wilson, Port Metro Vancouver’s vice-president of corporate social responsibility, said a LNG or oil facility at Roberts Bank isn’t on the port authority’s radar.

Adult system better suited to deal with murderer Psychiatrists testify at sentencing hearing that required treatment not available in youth correctional system BY

TOM ZYTARUK

Optimist contributor

The young man who murdered North Delta teen Laura Szendrei should be dealt with in the adult penal system, two psychiatrists have testified. Dr. Paul Janke, a psychiatrist with the Youth Forensic Psychiatric Service for B.C., testified Wednesday that the young man requires “indefinite” supervision that’s “well beyond” what’s available in the youth system. Janke said that “on a very conservative basis,” the killer, now 20, should be closely supervised well into his late 40s or early 50s. “He would be far outside the range of youth that

we treat,” said Janke, an expert witness called by the Crown. “Supervision should be extended indefinitely.” Janke testified during the third day of a four-day hearing into whether the confessed murderer, whose identity remains shielded by the Youth Criminal Justice System, should be sentenced as a youth or an adult. The young man was just days shy of his 18th birthday when he attacked 15year-old Szendrei while she was walking along a path in Mackie Park forest in the 8200-block of 110th Street in North Delta. Szendrei died in hospital on Sept. 26, 2010, one day after the vicious broad daylight beating.

The court heard that he used zap straps to restrain Szendrei and had struck her three times over the head with a metal pipe as she struggled to escape. On Tuesday, the victim’s mother, Rachael Szendrei, clapped her FILE PHOTO hands when Laura Szendrei’s parents, Rachael and Mike, would like to see their daughter’s Dr. Kulwant killer receive a life sentence. Riar, an expert witness to the lesser charge of The young man was called by the defence, told second-degree murder last charged with first-degree the court the young man year. murder but pleaded guilty

requires treatment not available to him in the youth correctional system. The grieving mom appeared heartened by the psychiatrist’s testimony. “We’re trying to be positive,” she told reporters outside the courthouse Tuesday. She said she “truly” believes her daughter’s killer will get a life sentence. “Laura deserves this, please,” she said. On Monday the court also heard that the young man confessed to an undercover police officer that he sexually attacked three other women in Burns Bog, prior to Szendrei’s murder. The sentencing hearing was scheduled to wrap up late Thursday afternoon.

Dairy farm to turn waste into energy Seabreeze proposal includes an anaerobic digester that would produce biogas to be sold to FortisBC BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

A waste-to-energy facility using animal waste could soon be part of an East Ladner dairy farm operation. Delta council gave preliminary approval this week to an application by Seabreeze Farm Ltd. on 112th Street to build a biogas facility, which includes an anaerobic digester that would process on-farm agricultural material, such as manure, crop waste and silage, as well as off-farm non-agricultural feedstocks, including fats, oils and greases. The facility would produce renewable energy in the form of biogas that would be sold to FortisBC. The municipality sent the application last year to the Agricultural Land Commission, which gave its endorsement. Council subsequently gave the application first reading, sending it to an upcoming public hearing to give residents a chance to comment. A report to council notes odour control would be achieved by storing all non-agricultural material in odour-tight tanks. The material would be pumped directly from the storage tanks to the anaerobic

ognizes that anaerobic digestion is an emerging issue, which if “farmbased” can benefit agricultural businesses. However, neither the ALC nor provincial farm regulations currently permit biogas generators as an outright use on farms, therefore, consideration of such a proposal must be done as a non-farm use application. During council’s discussion on the application this week, Ian Paton, a longtime Ladner farmer, noted that an important provision is that 51 per cent of the waste for the new facility has to be produced PHOTO BY GORD GOBLE on the farm, which A proposal for a waste-to-energy facility at Seabreeze Farm on 112th Street in East Delta received preliminary approval from Delta council should alleviate and will now go to a public hearing. concerns the facility will be a hub for digester.

Open burning ban continues for all Delta parks With the hot, dry weather continuing this week, Delta’s fire danger rating is on the rise. On Tuesday, the Delta Fire Department increased the fire danger rating from moderate to high, while maintaining the open burning ban. The ban is in effect for all areas of the municipality and prohibits campfires and open cooking using briquettes and propane barbecues in all Delta parks until further notice. An outdoor burning ban was implemented last month. As of June 24, all burning permits in Delta were cancelled and all types of outdoor fires were banned. The fire pits at Deas

Island and Boundary Bay regional parks, which are under Metro Vancouver’s jurisdiction, are excluded from this ban. Under the ban, smoking is also prohibited in Delta parks. Delta staff will continue to patrol parks and beaches to ensure there are no unauthorized activities taking place. The fire department is urging the public to exercise caution and remain on designated park trails to reduce the risk of accidental fires. Residents are asked to report any fires directly through 911. Any unauthorized activity that poses a fire risk can be reported through the Delta Police Department’s

24-hour non-emergency line at 604-946-4411. By following a few simple rules, residents can enjoy the hot weather and help prevent fires: • Dispose of smoking materials properly, making sure they are completely extinguished. • Don’t leave barbecues unattended and ensure they are turned off properly after you have finished using them. • Explain the dangers of playing with and lighting fires to children. • Properly dispose of bottles and broken glass you find outdoors to avoid them magnifying the sun’s rays and starting a fire.

most common PROSTATE The cancer to affect CANCER Canadian men

Employees from Willowbrook Safeway celebrating results of the June campaign.

THANK YOU! YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised

$1,447,769 during the month of June for research in the fight against prostate cancer. Funds raised from the June, 2013 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the fight against prostate cancer.

Police can’t find trace of alleged intruder

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW It was a bold decision, and could certainly be construed as another instance where politicians ignored the wishes of those they’re elected to serve, but at the end of the day it was the correct one. It’s understandable that many residents of Marina Garden Estates weren’t pleased by what Delta council decided earlier this week, just as they’re not enamored with the developer’s plans for the final phase of their riverfront neighbourhood. Up to this point, the attractive Ladner subdivision has been primarily comprised of single-family homes with a smattering of high-end townhouses thrown in for good measure. The final phase is decidedly different, a far denser development that will see more units built on the 15 per cent of the site that’s still vacant than what has been constructed over the last quarter-century on the rest of the property. If this proposal was coming forward for the first time, I don’t believe it would stand much of a chance at garnering civic approval given how the area has developed over the last two decades. However, this is far from a new application, which meant it had to be treated differently at municipal hall. Although the current design is amended from the original, the density, which is the single-biggest bone of contention for the neighbours, was approved 20 years ago and still applies today. As much as what’s been built and what’s planned to be built share little in common, the bottom line is they were both approved back in the ‘90s by a previous edition of Delta council. As I’ve mentioned before, if they had built the subdivision in reverse — the higher density component first — we wouldn’t be having this discussion, but that wasn’t the case, which ultimately set the stage for the showdown. I have to say, I wasn’t sure which way this one would play out in council chambers given the throng of homeowners firmly against the project, but in the end, the already-approved density won the day. Captain’s Cove and Polygon have the right to build there, so the real discussion was about tweaking the plan to ensure it has the least impact on the surrounding homes, although I’m sure you’d get some neighbours who would say that’s simply not possible. With a hotel already dropped from the original plan, almost all condos removed from the revised version and building heights stepped back, it turned out to be a compromise the majority of civic politicians could live with. Now it’s up to neighbours to do the same.

Soil must be improved to turn Southlands into viable farm MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT What a fantastic stretch of weather we are enjoying! I have been making every second day trips to North Delta of late to maintain local school farms and I have watched the crops along Highway 10 grow from seedlings into healthy maturing fields. Corn, potatoes, cabbage, peas and an assortment of other goodies will be harvested in the coming weeks that will hopefully end up on your dinner table. Early in the morning, or late in the day, you may see those giant tap sprinklers spraying the crops with their massive watery plumes. You don’t see these on the Southlands because the farmer who is leasing some of the land to grow potatoes and corn on that property doesn’t have access to irrigation infrastructure. The centre of the property was under water just a few weeks ago and the little

run-off from the hills to the south have essentially halted, leaving the crops dry and probably needing some rain soon to avoid percentage failure. I keep hearing people say the Southlands is some of the “best farmland in the world” and that its soils are “prime.” Just last week a letter writer described the lands as “ideal for soil based organic farming.” This is simply not true. Where do people come up with these unduly broad generalizations? Farming is a difficult business. Farming requires deft skill in managing arable land to maximize production efficiencies so people can eat food and farmers can get paid to ensure we get to eat in the future. There have been several reports on soil classifications for the Southlands from Century, the Corporation of Delta and other private firms. The majority of the Southlands fall into Ag Canada soil classifications of 3 to 5. Here is a description of Class 4 soils from Agriculture Canada to give you a hint: “Soils in this class have severe limitations that restrict the range of crops or require special conservation practices, or both. The limitations seriously affect one or more of the following practices:

The Optimist encourages readers to write letters to the editor. Letters are accepted on any topic, although preference is given to those on local matters. 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

timing and ease of tillage, planting and harvesting, choice of crops, and methods of conservation. The soils are low to fair in productivity for a fair range of crops but may have high productivity for a specially adapted crop.” Yes, there is potential to make all of this land arable and bring the soils up the scale to 1 and 2 but that costs money. There is “potential” to do anything at all. A regular piece of farmland on the scale of the Southlands would cost about $300,000 to $400,000 to properly drain and irrigate. Delta has determined that, for a variety of reasons, the Southlands would cost $13 million or about 40 times the cost of a “regular” piece of farmland. The developer and the Corporation of Delta are discussing how to do this and Century Group has committed to funding about half of the $13 million required. Opponents to the Southlands community proposal use phrases like “you can’t pave over farmland” and “we need to feed ourselves.” A community built around agriculture is a sensible and prudent idea, so let’s do it. If we want soil based agriculture to happen on the Southlands, let’s fix the soil.

July 19, 2013 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

MLA should be happy to have missed photo opp

Editor: Re: Huntington upset over minister meeting, July 12. There is one cause for which most politicians can be counted on for a fight to the end. That cause is the photo opportunity. They will climb over each other like frenzied shoppers at a U.S. Black Friday sale to get in front of the camera at any event considered remotely favourable to their respective profiles. Now they’re even manufacturing photo ops to

celebrate projects that are only 80 per cent finished, and fighting over who gets invited to look transparently foolish at the announcement. Vicki Huntington should probably be happy she didn’t have to attend and participate in an unnecessary staged event that was of absolutely no benefit to the taxpayer. She cannot be happy, however, nor should her constituents, to learn that it takes just a few hours for a B.C. Liberal MLA to arrange a meeting with

the mayor of Delta while she must wait months to be graced with the same special honour. Whether Mayor Lois Jackson likes it or not, Huntington is the MLA for Delta South and our representative on provincial issues and initiatives. Most of those necessarily have municipal consideration. Publicly snubbing our MLA while mouthing patently disingenuous excuses does nothing to resolve issues. We deserve and expect better. Lew Edwardson

Garden suffering this summer as the buzz of bees can no longer be heard

Editor: I am afraid that Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring has become my Silent Summer. I believe most of your readers know there has been a disastrous die-off of bees worldwide, known as colony collapse. I thought this only applied to honey bees, but this summer I am finding dead bumble bees on my patio almost daily. I have a privet bush in the back yard that, in days gone by, I could hear before

I could see it. It was really quite amazing the number and variety of bees buzzing around its pungent flowers. Not this year. As well, some of the plants that have done well in my garden for years are suffering. My hawthorn bush has lost most of its leaves and my hydrangea flowers are all dead on the top of the bush. What is happening? I live across from a farm. Is it spraying something

new on its crops that is drifting into my garden? There does seem to be a new crop there this year next to Chilukthan Slough. Are new pesticides and herbicides now drifting into that “environmentally protected” habitat? I have lived here for over 20 years and I have never seen this problem in the past. I hope this is not the beginning of our Silent Future. Valerie Fuller

New highway will mix cars and trucks on more circuitous route to Massey Tunnel Editor: We’re being led down the garden path once again. It is beginning to look like we, the John Q. Public, have been snookered once again Remember those wonderful Liberal promises that said the South Fraser Perimeter Road was being constructed in order to take those large container truck/ trailers off our roads and make it safer for everyone?

Yet the plan now is to divert either all or most of the traffic northbound on Highway 17 to the new highway. The existing highway is going to be reduced to one lane going on “to Ladner” and this is to encourage all drivers to get onto the SFPR, merge with the trucks and take an extralong journey to merge onto Highway 99 and join all

northbound traffic from South Surrey/White Rock. What a treat! If our mayor and council sit back and accept this, they should never get another chance to serve. It is not too late to do something about this, but once the pavement gets torn up at Highway 17 and the B.C. Rail overpass it will be. H. Wallace

Little info on mall projects Good Samaritan stops to ensure

Editor: Just what is that growing mountain of fill? Is it proof of mega malls underway and on schedule for 2015 openings or is it TFN’s “Field of Dreams ... build it and they will come?” An advertisement seeking mall project investors reports that: “Leasing activity to-date for Tsawwassen Commons has secured a number of tenants, with Walmart, Canadian Tire and PetSmart among them.” Yet when asked about these tenants, the investment firm’s representative declined to

comment. TFN’s spokesperson also declined, saying he wasn’t aware a Walmart is coming to Tsawwassen. Tsawwassen Commons lease space has been advertised for a year or more by Form Retail Advisors. Their brochure for the project mentions no secured tenants and the project recently disappeared from their Form Property Search website. Site preparation is underway at the location of the other mall, but its status seems equally unclear. If the mall developer were paying for the

The Matador

work, wouldn’t they post a big sign for all to see and admire? Something like: “Coming Soon, Tsawwassen Mills by Ivanhoe Cambridge.” If TFN were paying for site preparation, wouldn’t that suggest there’s no signed lease? What TFN does with its money or land is none of Delta’s business, but considering the potential for negatively impacting us, wouldn’t it be neighbourly to at least keep us reliably informed? Ed Ries

elderly couple gets there safely

Editor: I wish to thank the lady, whose only name I know is Jane, who is on staff at the Delta View Habilitation Centre. My husband (who has Alzheimer’s) and myself in a disability walker found ourselves walking on the shoulder of southbound Highway 99 last Tuesday morning. We were looking to get to the north side of the highway as we had missed

getting off the bus at the Matthews Exchange. What a very scary situation we found ourselves in with all the vehicle traffic whizzing by at such a busy time. The trucks and buses going by with thunderous speed were especially frightening. A lady, who told me her name was Jane, stopped and trundled us into her car, put my walker in the trunk and then proceeded to deliver us safely to meet

the friends waiting for us. We are so thankful and overwhelmed that Jane had the thoughtfulness to stop and pick us up. I don’t seem to be able to find the phone or address of the Delta View Habilitation Centre, so hopefully she (and others) will read this letter and know how very grateful we both are that Jane stopped her car and rescued us. What a Good Samaritan. Marcia & Erwin Schell

Jackey Zellweger (second from left) accepted a cheque on behalf of the Delta Hospital Foundation from Rian Nunney (left), Ross Luchene and Ryan Speidel of Harris Nurseryland.

Harris sale benefits hospital Harris Nurseryland continued its support of Delta Hospital with a donation of over $1,600 last month. It’s the first time the Ladner gardening centre’s annual sale and hot dog barbecue has benefited the hospital. “We wanted to take our annual sale weekend and make it into something good for the hospital,” said Harris Nurseryland manager Ross Luchene. “It’s just a great way to give back in a way that everyone will benefit.” Jackey Zellweger, the

Delta Hospital Foundation’s corporate and event manager, was pleased Harris decided to put on an independent fundraising event to benefit the hospital. “Harris Nurseryland has always been a big supporter of the community, and we are thankful that they thought of us in this year’s annual sale.” Independent fundraising events are ones held by individuals, businesses, service clubs, schools and similar organizations on behalf of the Delta Hospital

Foundation. Over the last five years, these events have produced over $35,000 for the Hospital Greatest Needs Fund, which is dedicated to supporting the most vital equipment identified by the hospital’s medical staff. To learn more about hosting an independent fundraising event, contact Zellweger at 604-9409695 or jackey.zellweger@dhfoundation.ca. Foundation staff members are available to help with ideas, advice and promotional materials.

Guild mixes Oil and Water again 10th annual art competition begins next week at Tsaw. Longhouse Gallery BY

NOREEN M. FAIRWEATHER Optimist contributor

T

he South Delta Artists Guild has added a new colour to its palette for this year’s Oil and Water competition. A first-ever collaboration with the Federation of Canadian Artists has helped draw a record-breaking number of entries from 133 artists in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island. Oil and Water was the brainchild of respected and popular artist Faith LoveRobertson who answered the need for a juried art show during her presidency of the guild in 2004. The annual competition, open to any visual artist, has consistently presented outstanding art for public viewing and purchase, since every painting hung must be for sale. This year marks Oil and Water No. 10, and like its predecessors, will be shown by the South Delta Artists Guild in the Tsawwassen Longhouse Gallery of the Kiwanis Longhouse, which has been the home of the guild since 1999. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 25. The Federation of Canadian Artists, like the South Delta Artists Guild, is a not-forprofit society dedicated to raising artistic standards. It was founded in 1941 by Canadian artists, including famed Group of Seven leader Lawren Harris.

Artist puts on retrospective Ladner artist Michael Abraham will have a retrospective exhibit with over two decades of his work on display this summer at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam. The exhibit, Apologues, features bold, colourful and irreverent paintings and sculptures that hold a funhouse mirror up to society, politics and human behaviour. An apologue is a brief story that is similar to a fable or parable, but differs in that it uses rhetorical arguments and exaggeration to sway the viewer in a moral direction without explicitly stating its intention.

Like his title suggests, Abraham does not aim for realism, and instead uses abstraction to observe society and politics at play with a phenomenological and psychological slant, according to a press release from the gallery. Abraham, who was born in Montreal, has been featured in solo exhibitions in both Vancouver and Los Angeles, as well as in group exhibitions across North America. He is a highly successful commercial artist and his work is included in public and private collections across Canada and the United States.

Michael Abraham: Apologues runs in the Art Gallery at Evergreen from July 20 to Aug. 31.

distinct memberships. Oil and Water has been accepted as a qualifying exhibition for the Federation of Canadian Artists Signature Status application, which means work accepted can be counted towards the artist’s status application. Three Federation of Canadian Artists Senior Signature members have been appointed judges. They are Michael Abraham, Marney Rose Edge and Jennifer Harwood, all of whom count guild membership in their artistic experience. Preliminary judging is done by viewing the art digitally and anonymously. Final winners will be chosen from the accepted paintings hung in the gallery just before the exhibition opens. As a non-profit society, the South Delta Artists Guild is dependent on local donors for awards, and this year they have again responded generously. Among these, the Orlitzky family of Tsawwassen has donated $1,000 as a Best of Show prize, plus $500 towards costs. The opening reception, which will include the presentation of awards, is scheduled for Thursday, July 25, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The exhibition and sale of art will run through to Aug. 24, Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a late opening on Thursdays to 8 p.m. The Kiwanis Longhouse is adjacent to the South Delta Recreation Centre.

Green Room

A

quiet walk around the garden doesn’t have to be long or energetic, but done frequently with a thoughtful eye it can blend relaxation therapy with creative dreams and casual troubleshooting of problems that are just starting. Deadheading is one example. Picking off a few dead rose blooms every time you pass a rose bush encourages certain kinds such as

Bonica or Rosa chinensis to re-bloom yet it’s very little deadheading in any one walk. Some roses such as the Flower Carpet series are self-cleaning, which means the petals drop without help. Tidy gardeners may clean up the petals but in hot summer days fallen petals wither fast anyway. The heritage roses can be deadheaded but almost all won’t bloom again. The Gallica roses are especially interesting. If the blooms are picked and dried, some retain most of their colour and all of their scent. Weeding can be very casual in hot summers. Weeds without flower heads can be pulled and left in

place to wither. A couple of days and they will have dried to almost nothing. People who have left seed-heads to develop on plants they plan to propagate can do easy seed collecting by walking around with a bucket containing a few brown paper bags, pruners and a pencil to label what you’re collecting. It’s a good use for recycled bags. This works well for poppy seed, Nigella, Siberian irises, dill, parsley corn salad and arugula seed. Seed of lilies, allium, camas, hardy agapanthus, dianthus and many more can be collected simply by waiting until seed-heads

are dry on the stalk, cutting them and up-ending the seed-heads in a paper bag and shaking. Not all the seeds shake loose but if you have chosen a big sheaf of dry seed heads, you’ll get lots of seed anyway. If you don’t want accidental seedlings in your compost, the halfempty seed heads can go to the local green waste program. Not all seeds come through the lower temperatures of home composting, but some seeds do. That’s why seed-heads of weeds and lethally poisonous plants such as hellebores and aconitum should never be composted. When fall rains begin, scattering home-collected

Microwaving is said to work if a few herb stems are put inside a fold of wax paper, but quantities have to be small and fire can be a hazard. Checking for pests and diseases, removing or treating diseased or badly infested plants and snipping off suspicious leaves and twigs can combine puttering and heading off trouble before it really gets started. Often you see the problem and the remedy on the same plant — for instance, aphids and ladybugs. Sometimes watching and waiting turns out to be the right approach after all.

Are you looking for the ultimate "Lap Cat"? Look NO further! This is the girl for you!! Poppy was surrendered due to her owners no longer being able to handle their allergies (no fault of her own) They described Poppy as the most friendly, gentle and easy-going cat they have ever met. Poppy is great around ALL children and very gentle and tolerant of them. She enjoys going outside on nice summer days and lounging with her family on the patio. She was living with another cat, though she did not enjoy his company, she was tolerant of his presence. A home all to her own is what Poppy would love! OH, with lots of people to love or lots of love to give one person, either works for her!.

seed in places where you’d like more of the original plants is an easy puttering activity. Seed that is best scattered in spring should spend winter in a refrigerator or some other cool place. Snipping herbs for drying is another pleasant way of spending an early evening walk during hot summer days. Past generations of gardeners would hang herb bunches in kitchens where hazards included spiders and dust. Putting drying herbs within paper bags protects them but lacks that old-time ambience. Nowadays, people freeze herbs or oven-dry at a low temperature.

MEMBERSHIP AT BEACH GROVE GOLF CLUB

Meet Ian Murray Golf Course Superintendent Ian Murray has been a valued employee at Beach Grove Golf Club for over 30 years. We recently asked Ian a few questions about his work at the Club. What keeps you interested in working at Beach Grove Golf Club? I feel privileged to work and live in the community and to lead a team of very passionate, dedicated, and experienced people. For example our 6 most senior Employees have a collective tenure of over 160 years with our Club! That, in its self, is testament to the great working environment and diversity of the challenges that present every day; often far beyond the realm of horticulture and agronomy. The work is interesting and fast paced and we are permitted to operate with a reasonable degree of autonomy. Our gender neutral Club is very progressive and continues to evolve in many positive ways. We have a diverse Membership from Junior players all the way to Senior Ladies in their nineties that are still “swinging” at least three times a week for nine holes of golf. From a Superintendent’s perspective how would you describe the property? We are a parkland style course of just over 100 acres nestled within the Beach Grove Community. Our course layout affords the opportunity to come down in the evening and just play 9 holes and the predominantly Xat terrain is easily walked providing an element of exercise to an enjoyable round of golf. Our par 71 course plays to a maximum distance of 6,208 yards and par is often protected by fast, true, yet deceiving putting surfaces, strategically placed bunkers, numerous mature trees and 8 water hazards. The recent addition of forward tees accommodates beginners and also super-seniors that have lost some strength and distance and would still like the opportunity to reach the greens in regulation. What makes the Beach Grove Golf Club experience so great? Our focus is to provide a consistent and high level of conditioning to the golf course. In performing their various duties to meet our objectives the Staff remain vigilant, constantly looking-out for the well being of our Members and Guests and have been instrumental in providing aid whenever required. The courteous and friendly demeanor of our Staff in all departments helps build and cement relationships over time and our Members often feel and are treated like extended family. In short we hope everyone enjoys their experience at the Club and to always feel that they have received great value. All Employees at our Club work very hard every day to create this result!

Exploring Alaska’s primeval wilderness BY

MARGARET DEEFHOLTS Optimist contributor

A

ripping sound, followed by a crackle — and the crowd holds its breath. A thick chunk crumbles and falls off the crenellated wall of ice with a thunderous roar, raising a spume of gray and brown flecked spray. A moment later, another whip-crack reverberates on the afternoon air, and further along the glacier front a second sliver breaks free and disappears into a foam of churning green water. A collective “aaah” shudders along the ship’s rails. Like the other passengers paused before the Margerie Glacier in Alaska’s Glacier Bay, I am spellbound by what the Tlingit Indians call “white thunder.” I am also reduced to ant-like proportions before a mass of ice rising 250 feet above the surface of Tarr Inlet. Silhouetted against a cerulean sky, the glacier is a fantastical sculpture of castle turrets, spires,

battlements and ramparts. Stray fingers of sunlight find their way into fissures, transforming the ice into turquoise crystal caves. Further away, to the right of the Margerie, the Grand Pacific Glacier cascades down the mountainside like an unfurled bolt of white satin. Glacier Bay National Park encompasses a tracery of fjords winding through 3,280,000 acres of primordial Alaskan wilderness. Our ship travels past four of its 16 active tidewater glaciers: the Margerie, the Lamplugh, the Grand Pacific and the Reid glaciers. The water streaming by our aft deck is flecked with popcorn-like blobs of icebergs, but as we progress deeper into the fjord these become larger and take on a blue-fire translucence — blown-glass sculptures which, with a little imagination, become long-necked swans and leaping ballerinas. As we make our way along Tarr Inlet on this sundrenched May afternoon,

the public address system on the aft deck crackles to life: “Folks, take a look at the lower slopes of the mountain on the starboard side... you’ll see a couple of mountain goats.” A little later, the dorsal fin of an Orca causes a stir along the deck railings on the port side. In a split second of magnificence, the whale surfaces, breaches and disappears below the waters with a flourish of its tail flukes. Further along a shoreline, a bald eagle soars on the wind. Moose, wolves, wolverines, lynx, Sitka blacktailed deer, marten and mink all inhabit Glacier Bay’s pristine wilderness. Grizzlies, too, prowl through these forests, but for now they remain curled in hibernation, for the wind blowing hard across our ship’s deck still carries the bitter chill of winter on its breath. Looking out across the glinting waters, it is hard to believe that when Captain Vancouver arrived here in 1794 this arm of Glacier

Bay was locked in ice to a depth of 4,000 feet. In the space of 200 years — a mere nanosecond of time in terms of the earth’s evolution — some of these glaciers have retreated at the astonishing rate of 10 feet a day. Geologists have determined, however, that the advance and retreat of glaciers is cyclical and, global warming aside, it is conceivable this fjord we are now cruising through could, in the distant future, be an ice field once more. Later that evening, I stand on the aft deck and watch the setting sun turn the sky to copper. Chiffon trails of cloud wreathe the blushed snow-capped peaks. Other than the wash of water against our hull, the dusk brings with it a silence, accentuating the harsh beauty of these desolate towering mountains. Their sheer immensity evokes a sense of awe that borders on the mystical. Perhaps that’s why the Hoonah Indians centuries ago called it “The Abode of

Trainers, ranging from experts in natural horsemanship to jumping coaches, post notices inviting prospective clients to come for a visit. Boarding stables advertise stalls for rent, with prices dependant on their location and amenities; reduced rates are often available for owners who are able to do some of the daily chores themselves. As well, you’ll find contact information for support groups, including pony clubs for kids and the Vintage Riders club for seniors.

attached the sign to my car and began to drive, I became aware of my behaviour behind the wheel. “Road rage” while sporting a “church” sign isn’t a good way to proclaim the glory of God working in our lives! It’s a sobering reminder that in all things, we are to proclaim the love of God, to promote justice and peace for all God’s people. Our work is quite clear. Jesus tells the young man to go and take care of his neighbour, and then clearly states that our neighbour isn’t just the person who looks and sounds “like us.” Perhaps it’s time for the church to check our marketing strategy — and live out the love that we proclaim, both behind the wheel and walking on the path.

Have you discovered “online shopping” yet? I am amazed at the ways in which I am enticed to “buy, buy, and buy some more!” Not long ago, one of the marketing ploys was to give away free stuff — and the more you bought, the more free stuff you could have! I began to think that maybe there was a genetic glitch in my makeup because I found myself with lots more in my “cart” than I could ever imagine. That’s how I came to have a free magnetic sign for my car door. It said, in big bold letters, “All Saints Anglican Church,” and it was free! Well, sort of free. What I didn’t count on was to consider the price I would have to pay. For when I

DriveTıme Mazda puts twist on family sedan

In a competitive market, 2014 Mazda6 stands apart with hybrid-like fuel efficiency AX

C@UHC BG@N

Optimist contributor

The family sedan market is ultra competitive and it’s dominated by the “big league” automakers like

Toyota and Honda. Mazda never was a significant player, but when Ford sold its shares in the company a few years ago, Mazda was left with even fewer resources than before.

Because it doesn’t have the finances its larger competitors do, Mazda must use a more focused planning strategy. In the past, it focused on building cars that are sportier and more

fun to drive than the mainstream. While Mazda continues to provide a more thrilling driving experience, recently it’s decided to add one more important element to the

Lightweight construction means the Mazda6 gets great gas mileage.

car design: push the limits of lightweight construction and allow new, innovative engineering methods to achieve almost hybrid-like fuel consumption. Mazda calls its current philosophy SKYACTIV. SKYACTIV technologies debuted on the 2013 CX-5 CUV with positive reviews. The 2014 Mazda6 receives the full complement of the new design system and more. Design Forward thinking has allowed the new Mazda6 to share the same platform as the CX-5, which is already a great car. This chassis is light, yet very strong and will also serve as a base for the upcoming CX-9. The bodywork shows Mazda’s new Kodo design language. The unique grill and eye-shaped headlights are prominently displayed at the front. Distinctly sculpted shoulders complement the stretched hood and carry the theme rearward. The sloping roofline leads to a similarly sculpted rear end, highlighted by LED taillights. The interior design is not flashy, but it is well organized and easy on the eyes. It also offers more room than the previous model. Mazda offers generous standard features to keep the Mazda6 competitive in this fiercely contested market segment. Performance These days, the overriding theme throughout the automotive industry is fuel economy. Unfortunately, hybrid systems are expensive to design and manufacture. Even after that hefty initial investment, most hybrid cars are still sold at a loss by the automak-

ers (though Toyota likely has figured out a way to squeeze every possible penny out of its hybrids). Mazda could not take on that significant risk so it applied itself to improving conventional technologies. The SKYACTIV-G is a 2.5-litre, inline four-cylinder engine, running on regular gasoline and boasting a diesel-like 13:1 compression ratio. This results in 184-hp and 185 ft-lbs of torque, which compared to the old engine are improvements of eight and 11 per cent respectively. Speaking of diesel, Mazda has designed an engine to run on that too. However, it’s been so popular in Japan and Europe that we won’t see one here until later this year when production can catch up with the demand. Mazda approached its transmission redesign with the same mindset as the engine. Forsaking complicated, and therefore expensive dual-clutch transmissions, Mazda instead focused on making the best conventional transmissions available. The new manual is as great as the one admired in the MX-5 and the innovative automatic delivers excellent low-speed feel and quick shifts. Both are lightweight and combine well with the new engine to deliver segment topping gas-only fuel economy. The SKYACTIV thinking applied to the chassis means the suspension was calibrated to provide Mazda’s patented “zoom-zoom” driving dynamics, but not at the expense of comfort.

MAZDA6 from page 22 limited amount of body roll make the Mazda6 the most engaging car to drive in this class. Drive the Mazda6 back to back with the likes of Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, and you will quickly realize the driving enjoyment only belongs to the Mazda — though the new-for-2013 Honda Accord comes pretty close. Environment The theme of improving economy through simplification continues into the cabin. It is very driver-oriented with all important controls logically placed and highly visible. Most surfaces are soft to the touch and the attention to detail is evident. The front seats are supportive yet offer plenty of elbow room. Head and knee-room is also adequate, though not super generous in comparison to crossovers that also compete in this segment, which offer better interior packaging than sedans in general. The Mazda6 offers more rear legroom than most in this class. And despite the low roofline, rear headroom

is also sufficient for an average adult. While cargo space is actually less than the outgoing model, overall capacity is still quite good and the shape is usable and practical. The new exterior design makes access a little restricted, although the 60/40 folding rear seats do create a rather large passthrough. On the infotainment front, the Mazda6 doesn’t feature anything terribly innovative. A 5.8-inch colour touchscreen displays the audio, phone and navigation functions. This can be controlled through the optional Commander Switch, which operates much like BMW’s iDrive. Radar cruise control, blind spot monitoring and forward obstruction warning are notable new options. Features Ranging in price from $24,495 to $32,195, the Mazda6 is available in three trim levels: GX, GS, and GT. Standard equipment on the GX includes heated front seats, 5.8-inch colour touchscreen audio display,

Bluetooth, keyless entry, push-button ignition, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, dynamic stability control, and traction control system. Additional features, available as options or on higher trims, include leather trimmed upholstery, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, leather-like door trim, navigation system, SiriusXM satellite radio, Smart City brake support, forward obstruction warning, radar cruise control and a lane departure warning system. Fuel efficiency numbers for the six-speed manual transmission are 8.1L/100km city and 5.3L/100km highway. The six-speed automatic sees 7.6L/100km city and 5.1L/100km highway. Thumbs Up The SKYACTIV technology provides excellent fuel economy without having to pay the added premium for a hybrid. The styling also means you will stand out from the crowd. Thumbs Down While the Mazda6 is good, it’s hard to argue against the established leaders from Honda and Toyota who have longer histories

K.I.S.S.

The 2014 Mazda6 is driver oriented with logically placed controls, supportive seats and plenty of elbow room. and glowing reputations. The Bottom Line In a segment dominated by conservative mainstays, the Mazda6 offers a goodlooking, fun-to-drive alternative. Competitors Honda Accord The current base model Accord is available for $23,990 and boasts a classy interior that feels more upmarket. Its reputation

speaks for itself but the Mazda6 compares admirably. The Honda Accord is a great all-round family car with excellent reliability. Toyota Camry The Toyota Camry has always had excellent build quality and resale value. The newest generation adds more character to its looks. While the hybrid boasts exceptional fuel economy,

the Mazda6 has the Camry beat in base trim. Ford Fusion The Ford Fusion is a great looking car at a good price, starting at $22,499. It also features a wide range of models to choose from so you can find the car that best suits your needs. Like the Camry, the Mazda6 offers superior fuel economy compared to nonhybrid models.

Program helps newcomers to feel welcome in Delta Ask most Canadians what it means to be Canadian and they’ll have a tough time giving you an answer. Imagine how difficult it is for someone new to Delta to figure out how to become part of the community. That’s the challenge for a new initiative called the Welcoming Communities Program, managed by Progressive Intercultural Community Services in partnership with Deltassist and other Delta-based agencies. “For the past few months we have been talking with newcomers from all walks of life,” says program co-ordinator Margherita Zorzetto. “They see Delta as a caring and friendly place, but have had some real challenges fitting into a community and country that is still new for them.” The goal of the Welcoming Communities Program is to help Delta’s newcomers get to know their new home and feel like they are part of their community, and to provide feedback for employers and service providers to better

Picnic in park set for Sunday

The Delta Welcoming Communities Program is hosting a picnic this Sunday at Deas Island Regional Park. The event, which will run from 3 to 6 p.m., will include a treasure hunt, nature walk, free refreshments, a surprise activity and a chance to win prizes. To enquire about free transportation or to register, call 604-594-3455 or email gurpreet.kaur@ pics.bc.ca. understand what newcomers face when they arrive. One of the biggest challenges in becoming part of the community is the recognition of professional experience and qualifications. “One newcomer was close to tears as he told me about his first couple of years in Delta. He had a hard time finding work in his field and was frustrated he wasn’t able to contribute as much as he knew he could,” says Zorzetto.

Michael Dally moved his family from Scotland in 2006, and now resides in Tsawwassen. He says his biggest challenge was understanding how to be Canadian. “Canadians have a different way about them, and it took us a little while to figure out how to be part of the community,” says Dally. “It took some time, but we stuck with it. Once we became more comfortable, we’ve grown to love it here, especially in Delta. “The only real problem I’ve had is with my accent. The voice control in my car couldn’t understand me, so I had to take it back to the dealership.” Funded by the federal and provincial governments, the program is offered in many municipalities throughout the province. It includes events designed for recent immigrants and longterm residents to socialize and learn more about the community. Zorzetto also wants to hear from other newcomers. If you have a story to share, you can contact her at marghertia.zorzetto@pics.bc.ca.

ADVICE FROM THE PROS QUESTION:

QUESTION:

Does Western Coin & Stamp buy unwanted valuables from the public?

Would you like greater control of your Google “Local Search Results”?

ANSWER:

ANSWER: Searching Google often results in a bulleted list of website links with a related map displaying teardrops identifying the location of each business on the right. These listings are formatted to stand out from the Paid and Organic results. These are known as “Local Search Results”.

Yes, we are a trusted local business, in Richmond for 28 years, and are pleased to valuate your valuables and buy them from you.

Jim Richardson, owner Western Coin and Stamp

We have heard many sad stories from local people receiving very low valuation and offers to purhcase from touring buyers coming to town and setting up at hotels for a few days. They are being offered as low as 1/3 of the fair market value we would have paid for the same item. Please be careful. If you are looking to sell and to turn your unwanted valuables into cash please contact us.We like to give you a fair and honest deal as we value our reputation.

QUESTION: What are some tips for finding the right treadmill for my home? ANSWER: If you are considering buying a new treadmill, it is important to try out as many as you can prior to purchasing and to choose one that feels comfortable and is a good fit for you. You need to think about how often you are going to use it and how many other people will be using it on an ongoing basis. Also think about whether you will be using it mostly for walking or running, as some treadmills are more suited to a certain level of activity and have different types of pre-set and manual programming available. If you want your treadmill to last more than a couple of years, you will need to look at higher quality treadmills which may cost a little more, but are worth the investment over the long run. Inspect the build quality of the treadmill, and the materials used for the frame. Also examine what warranty the manufacturer provides - a higher quality residential treadmill will have at least a 5 year parts warranty. When you do purchase the treadmill, be sure to ask the salesperson how to adjust the walking belt periodically and for other maintenance tips. If you are in the market for a new treadmill or other piece of fitness equipment, like an elliptical, rower, or bike, or require any type of servicing on your existing fitness equipment, please give us a call.

QUESTION: What is the position of CHOA(Condominium Homeowner Association of BC) regarding the final date for a Strata to obtain a Strata Depreciation Report? Also Is it good enough to just have the Depreciation Report ordered by December 13th,2013 (with completed report in 2014?) ANSWER: NO, not according to CHOA. If your strata corporation des not pass a three quarters pass vote for an exemption bylow to opt out from the requirement, then you still will be required to have your depreciation report COMPLETED by December 13th,2013.

QUESTION: How do tankless water heaters work, and how long do they last? ANSWER: Tankless water heaters work on demand - they only heat water when necessary. When a hot water fixture is opened or hot water is required by an appliance, the water heater will sense the demand and heat water accordingly. Instead of wasting energy and money re-heating and storing water when it is not needed, tankless water heaters provide only as much hot water as needed. Tank type water heaters store and heat water at all times, thus incurring higher operating costs. They have a limited supply of hot water and will run out of hot water while tankless water heaters provide an unlimited supply of hot water - you will never run out. The size of a residential tankless water heater is about the size of a carry on suitcase and can be installed virtually anywhere inside your home. This will allow you to reclaim valuable space in your home. The Energy Commission estimates that a tank type water heater uses approximately 25% of all energy consumed by any household. Using a tankless water heater will allow a home to use up to 50% less energy for heating water, which can save hundreds of dollars per year. Tankless water heaters can last 20 or more years, which is 2-3 times longer than a traditional tank type heater. Apply now for your Fortis Rebate and save up to $500.00

Humphries is headed to KHL

Tsawwassen defenceman signs deal with HC Lev Praha organization in Czech Republic BY

MARK BOOTH

Local Tides

mbooth@delta-optimist.com

Another member of the 2006-07 South Delta Bantam A1 Storm hockey team has signed a professional contract, except this one has gone overseas. Defenceman Spencer Humphries left for the Czech Republic last week where he will be suiting up in the coming Kontinental Hockey League season for HC Lev Praha. Humphries becomes the fifth player from the storied Bantam Storm team to turn pro, joining Brendan Gallagher, Colton Jobke, Taylor Peters and Josh Nichols. All four of his former teammates are under contract with NHL clubs and Humphries hopes to one day follow suit with some European seasoning to help get him there. After a solid career in the Western Hockey League, including the past three seasons with the Calgary Hitmen, Humphries received a tryout offer from the Vancouver Canucks and was on the verge of agreeing to terms with hometown NHL team when HC Lev Praha came along with a contract offer. “All my focus was on getting ready for the Canucks (prospects camp) as that’s where I really thought I was going to be,” said Humphries from his

Spencer Humphries had a solid career in the WHL including three seasons with the Calgary Hitmen. Tsawwassen home. “It was an all right first offer from (HC Lev Praha) that at least made me think about it. But when they came back with quite a bigger deal (with guaranteed money), the decision was pretty easy to make. “I would have been playing in the (American Hockey League) or somewhere with the Canucks. This is just a different route playing at a higher level

that might have a backdoor to take me where I want to eventually be.” Once he signed his contact, Humphries scrambled to get up to speed on the KHL and what his lifestyle will be like in Prague. His main source for information was 30-year-old Regina native Nathan Oystrick, one of four Canadians on HC Lev Praha’s roster last season. “He had nothing but

good things to say about the experience,” continued Humphries. “I will be living on my own in a one-bedroom place and spending a lot of free time hanging out with the other Canadian guys.” Humphries spent a season in the B.C. Hockey League with Westside before jumping to the TriCity Americans. He was traded midway through the 2010-11 campaign to the

Hitmen where he became a mainstay on the blueline. This past season he posted 38 points in 70 games and added 10 more points in the post-season as Calgary reached the conference final before falling to Alberta rival Edmonton in seven games. “Those were three of the best years of my life in Calgary,” he added. “Just a great organization to play for and a city to live in.”

Storm cap season at provincials

Delta team faced tough competition

CHRYSLER•DODGE•JEEP

The South Delta Storm represented Delta at the recent U16C Girls Fastpitch Provincials in Chilliwack. The team earned a berth at the championship when it won the Delta Cup tournament in June, claiming top spot in District 15. The girls worked extremely hard in Chilliwack, but unfortunately the competition was very tough. In the round-robin, the Storm played four of the top eight teams (out of 17), including the eventual tournament winner Gibsons Crushers and third place Penticton Power. These final games represented a terrific challenge for the team and its appearance at the tournament

capped off a successful season. Coaches Craig Merritt and Dave Stevens would like to thank the team for their outstanding play and attitude all year as well as Matt Ives, Laurie Lynes, Chad Rana, Scott Wheatley and the rest of the fantastic parental support team. The Storm roster includes: Alli Stevens, Ashley Ives, Ashley Hughes, Chanel Orlitzky, Emma White, Jessie Lynes, Jessie Minkus, Mirren Robson-Smillie, Nichelle Partridge, Olivia Merritt and Taylor Rana. At the provincials, the team was joined by Kyra Wheatley, Chelsea Jones and Tricia Kilbrai.

It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Edith Parmiter on July 14, 2013 (five days before her 95th birthday). Edith was predeceased by her husband, Alfred Parmiter who sadly passed away in 2006. Edith and Alfred were married for 69 years. Coincidentally, Edith passed away on the day which would have been their 76th wedding anniversary. Edith celebrated her first birthday in Tsawwassen where her parents, Raymond and May Lowe lived. Alfred and Edith were the third generations of Parmiters to farm the land along 34 B St (formerly know as Parmiter Road). Edith and Alfred formed a strong union as they shared the farm work and their enjoyment of fishing hunting, RVing and going on Jeep Club outings. In the late 1980’s Alfred and Edith sold the farm house and moved to Tsawwassen in an area not far from where Edith grew up. Having lived on a farm all their lives they naturally had a large and productive vegetable garden. Shortly after Alfred passed away in 2006, Edith opted to sell the house in Tsawwassen and move to Augustine House (on Arthur Drive), which was only a short distance from the Parmiter home. Edith is survived by her niece Elizabeth (Don) Crowe and her nephews, Jim and Bob Maxwell, Robin and Philip Parmiter, as well as several great and great great nieces and nephews. The family has lost a loving aunt and the community has lost a link to the beginning of farming in Delta. At Edith’s request there will not be a memorial service. A family gathering to remember her will be held at a later date.
