Temporary protection for house

Restoring heritage home would be costly BY

Delta council this week voted to give temporary protection to a high-profile heritage house that was possibly headed for demolition. At Monday night’s meeting, civic politicians approved a request from the Delta Heritage Advisory Commission to issue temporary heritage protection for the Kittson residence at 9230 Ladner Trunk Rd. Coun. Anne Peterson, who sits on the heritage commission, raised concerns about the overall state of heritage homes in Delta falling into disrepair and being demolished earlier this month after the Corporation received a demolition application for the farmhouse and barn. The barn was built in 1895 and the home in 1907 by farmer and Delta pioneer Robert Kittson. It is listed as having a high heritage value and is on Delta’s heritage inventory, but not on a heritage registry, which provides greater protection. The Kittson residence is on a 40-acre parcel and was recently sold by John van Dongen to a new owner, who is planning to build greenhouses on the property. The commission is not opposed to the demolition of the barn, but Peterson said losing the large heritage home is problematic and yet another case of “demolition by neglect.”
“This is a house that has some serious, serious problems,” said Coun. Ian Paton, noting that it would be costly for the owners to restore it. The commission was told the cost to restore the house is estimated between $400,000 and $500,000. The cost of moving it within a 10-mile radius was estimated to be $250,000, however, an assessment determined that, structurally, the house should not be moved.
“I, personally, am not holding out a lot of hope.”
Coun. Scott Hamilton
Council agreed Monday night to issue a 60-day heritage protection order for the home to give staff time to consult with the new owners, Bram and Jos Moerman, to see if other avenues for the house can be explored. Coun. Scott Hamilton stressed that the protection of the home is temporary and the building is at the mercy of the new owners — Delta does not have the money to step in and restore the home, he said, and such actions are not in the municipality’s purview. “I, personally, am not holding out a lot of hope,” he said. Correspondence from the new owners suggests a willingness to negotiate with Delta to save the house. In an e-mail received Monday, See HERITAGE page 3

A new 20-year master development plan is about to get underway at the Boundary Bay Airport. Alpha Aviation, which leases and operates the municipally-owned airport, from the Corporation of Delta, is looking to attract new tenants and bring in more investment. “The positive impact of this growth, on businesses not only located at the Airport, but throughout Delta and beyond, in the manufacturing, construction, transportation, retail and services sectors, can be tremendous,” said Alpha Aviation Inc. General Manager Greg Fong in a new release. According to Alpha Aviation, Boundary Bay is one of the top aviation training centres in Canada. It serves as a reliever to Vancouver International Airport (YVR). With recent capital investments and expansion Boundary Bay Airport now has the capacity to accommodate corporate business aircraft, smaller regional air carriers and serve as a major aviation industry centre. Delta Chamber of Commerce president Ian
“This plan promises to result in a major economic development opportunity for Delta and area.”
Alpha Aviation says Boundary Bay Airport is one of the top aviation training centres in the country. Tait recently said there will be new development opportunity and its spin-off benefits. “This plan promises to result in a major economic development opportunity for Delta and area,” Tait said in the chamber news release. “It will attract developers and ultimately businesses to the Boundary Bay Airport area, some
related to aviation sector and others looking for an excellent location in the heart of the Lower Mainland accessible to all modes of transportation.” Delta council recently agreed to award a $250,000 contract for a consultant to design new drainage water and sewer services at the airport. The goal is to plan new servicing infrastructure
that is expected to encourage industrial growth for the area. Engineering director Steven Lan told council the current servicing at the airport lands is outdated with much of the infrastructure located in the wrong places and not meeting standards. In June, council approved a zoning amendment to extend the light industrial and business park
use area at the airport in order to allow an auto parts warehouse and distribution operation to open. Two years earlier, council agreed with a request by Alpha Aviation, which leases and operates the municipal airport, to lease lands which don’t have direct access to the airport apron or runways to a wider range of users, including warehous-
port related purposes, Coun. Robert Campbell, who chairs the Boundary Bay Airport Advisory Committee, told the Optimist Alpha Aviation is “bleeding money” despite making a considerable investment to upgrade the airport. “I think what they’re doing is constantly revaluating their position and trying to get to a place where they can generate more revenues out of the airport,” he said. “There’s certainly quite a bit of developable airside land that needs to be kept for directly related to airside uses or airport uses, such as hangars.”
Case against SFPR could be heard next week Civil suit claims highway goes through number of burial sites that have spiritual and sacred significance BY
The battle to stop the construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road will continue in a Vancouver courtroom as early as next week. In May, Tsawwassen First Nation member Bertha Williams and William Burnstick, of the Cree Sioux First Nations, filed a civil suit in Vancouver Supreme Court against the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, the Minister of the Environment, and the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations claiming the road “go through a number
of burial sites that are of spiritual and sacred significance.” They claim the government was well aware the highway project would have an impact on archeological and burial sites but took no steps to modify or redesign the plans. The B.C. Supreme Court Hearing into the matter was set to begin Tuesday morning, however it was adjourned. Lawyer James Straith, who is representing Williams and Burnstick, said the case could be heard as early as next week. Williams and Burnstick claim construction of the road will cause irreparable harm to sacred burial

Beginning at the foot of the Alex Fraser Bridge and stretching roughly one kilometre eastward, it’s one of the most important archaeological sites in Western Canada.

601 bus to run more frequently
TransLink announces increase in service for route between 7 and 9 p.m. BY
Transit users traveling between South Delta and Richmond and Vancouver will soon have shorter wait times at the bus stop. TransLink announced Monday that as of Sept. 5 the 601 bus between South Delta and the Bridgeport Canada Line station in Richmond will run every 20 minutes between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Currently the bus runs every 30 minutes during that time. “As part of its Service Optimization Initiative, TransLink is re-aligning bus resources to meet changes in demand south of the Fraser River,” the company said in a news release. “... the increases will serve current demand and make transit more attractive for new users.” Many transit users in South Delta were unhappy
two years ago when TransLink eliminated direct service to Vancouver and re-routed the 601 to Richmond where riders heading to Vancouver now have to transfer onto the Canada Line. That wasn’t the only transit change announced this
“... the increases will serve current demand and make transit more attractive for new users.” week for the area. TransLink also announced that people working on Annacis Island will have more options during the afternoon/evening peak period with three more trips added to the 104 Annacis Island/22nd Street Station route. According to the transit
authority, demand on that route has seen a steady increase recently so three additional trips will leave 22nd Street Station to make the loop over the Queensborough Bridge and around Annacis Island via Port Royal between 6:43 p.m. and 7:35 p.m. Earlier this month, TransLink also announced increased Canada Line service from downtown Vancouver to Richmond and Vancouver International Airport. The Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation is currently deliberating a proposal to increase the funding available to TransLink to allow for more service hours. “In the meantime, the Service Optimization Initiative is re-allocating resources from under performing routes to routes and time of day that are under-served in order to
provide more service within the same ‘envelope’,” reads the statement from TransLink. Next month, a series of four public meetings are planned to give the public an opportunity to learn about the budget supplement, the projects it would fund and discuss it with TransLink’s CEO Ian Jarvis. The meetings will be held on: • Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Lonsdale Quay Hotel in North Vancouver from 6:30-8:30 p.m. • Thursday, Sept. 8 at the Holiday Inn Metrotown in Burnaby from 6:30-8:30 p.m. • Wednesday, Sept. 14 at the Guildford Recreation Centre in Surrey from 6:308:30 p.m. • Thursday, Sept. 15 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

HST gone by March 2013 53.4% of Delta South voters wanted to keep harmonized sales tax
The government has promised to drop the harmonized sales tax by March 31, 2013. Following Friday’s results of the province-wide mailin referendum on the controversial tax, the province announced when the old PST and GST will return with the exemptions that had existed prior to the HST. Elections BC last week announced the results of the referendum, which found a majority of voters chose to go back separate provincial and federal sales taxes. About 1.6 million voters — 52 per cent of registered B.C. voters — participated in the vote. 54.73 per cent in B.C. voted to scrap the HST with 45.27 per cent voting to keep it in place. In Delta South it was a different story with 46.46 per cent voting in favour of extinguishing the tax and 53.54 per cent voting to keep it. In Delta North, though, 58.44 per cent voted to scrap the tax and 41.56 per cent voted against. Introduced by the Liberal government following the 2009 provincial election and enacted in July of last year, the 12 per cent HST, which the government promised to lower, applied to many goods and services which were previously exempt from PST. Aimed at simplifying the tax structure, the HST did have supporters in South Delta including the Delta Farmers’ Institute. The HST also proved to
be a good deal for some including the Corporation of Delta. Last year, for example, council approved the purchase of a new fire truck, a purchase that had been held off until after the July 1, 2010 start date of the new tax, because the municipality got an HST rebate. Previously, the municipality wouldn’t receive a PST rebate for such purchases. Mayor Lois Jackson at the time said Delta got “a bigger bang for its buck.” Some of the items that are now subject to the 12 per cent HST that will become cheaper, as they will be exempt from the seven per cent PST, include new homes over $525,000. A year ago Delta council agreed to an application by businessman Ron Toigo to amend his Tsawwassen Springs housing development due the HST. Toigo had asked to split up many of the residential condo units into smaller units that would be less expensive and under the HST threshold. The return to the PST creates significant pressure on the government budget, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said. Premier Christy Clark, who last week met with businesses and community leaders in Delta, said the government has been working on a “Plan B” in the event the tax was rejected. Calling the referendum results historic, Fight HST leader and former premier Bill Vander Zalm said the people have sent a message that politicians must consult with the people on issues as

Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington hopes the government will act in an open and consultative manner now that the province must adjust to life without the harmonized sales tax. Nic Slater, recently acclaimed as the NDP

MURPHY’S LAW Development is one of those words that can turn this municipality on its ear, but there’s another one that might become even more contentious in the months and years to come: redevelopment. Building something on a vacant piece of land comes with an inherent set of problems, but in many ways they can pale to the concerns generated by the act of replacing old with new. Redevelopment is only beginning to emerge as a major issue in these parts, but given the finite amount of developable land, we’re going to see more and more instances where a neighbourhood feels its character and livability are coming under attack. The vast majority of Delta’s housing stock was built in the years immediately after the George Massey Tunnel opened and it’s predominantly single-family in nature. Up to this point, a lot of the redevelopment has been replacing an older single-family home on a big lot with a couple or three single-family homes on decidedly smaller lots. This hasn’t caused too much unrest because it’s generally kept the area’s character intact, but it also hasn’t done much to address the lack of housing variety. Single-family homes, whether they’re the older ones or the newer versions on the postage stamp lots, are out of the financial reach of most young home buyers, yet not exactly what empty nesters have in mind. Enterprising developers and municipal planners recognize the situation, but doing something about it often times means upsetting the status quo. Delta identified the Highlands neighbourhood, just north of the town centre, as a potential site for redevelopment into higher density housing during last year’s Tsawwassen Area Plan process, a notion that got civic politicians an earful at the subsequent public hearing and forced them to withdraw the idea. People, for the most part, like the neighbourhoods they live in, so when someone comes along and says we’re going to change the character of it because the community as a whole must evolve, it’s a hard line to swallow. The reaction is understandable, yet the issues of housing affordability and variety continue to persist. We can maintain the integrity of our single-family neighbourhoods, but it means the very real possibility of sending the young and old elsewhere to find appropriate housing. Redevelopment talk won’t go away, but it seems to me this discussion is no longer just limited to land use as it now clearly has a sociological component to it.
What was premier told about the wants of South Deltans? STEVE GRAHAM
COMMUNITY COMMENT As you saw in last Wednesday’s Optimist, Sylvia Bishop is running for council again this November thus forcing editor Ted Murphy to reach far into the back of the bench to obtain a substitute Community Commenter. I readily accepted since I consider the run-up to the triennial municipal election (although Lois would seem to prefer a quinquennial cycle) to be the best time to have a regular Optimist column since one can raise issues that can remain in front of mind at voting time. I want to remind readers of the records and policies of the current mayor and council where these have differed from the best interests of South Deltans. The Tsawwassen Area Plan springs to mind. However, for this week, I just
can’t pass up commenting on the front-page story in the August 24 Optimist headlined as “Premier in town for round-table.” In it Premier Christy Clark is quoted as saying: “I committed to opening up government when I got elected in March. So, I’ve been doing town halls all across the province and this is part of it.” One hardly knows where to start. Apparently Christy met with selected (by her) members of the Delta community at the meeting, “which was closed to the media and general public.” Her idea of “opening up the government” is to have “town hall” meetings which are closed to the media and the general public! Further, Christy “got elected in March.” True, she was elected by a slim majority in Point Grey, but should I infer from her self-serving comment that she has been elected as premier by the aforementioned excluded “general public?” No, no. You don’t have to be elected by the general public to be Premier of B.C. You just get appointed by the Lieutenant Governor who, in turn, is appointed by the Governor General who, in turn, is appointed by the Queen who, in turn, inherits her job.

You can’t just walk into the palace and see the Queen; likewise you can’t just walk into a town hall meeting in Delta and see Christy. If she ever calls a real election to get a real mandate, you also don’t have to vote for her. In fact you can’t. Fortunately you will be able to vote for Vicki Huntington, who was elected by South Deltans and who I have always found to be truthful and sincere. So what did the pre-selected participants at the exclusive town hall meeting tell Christy that South Deltans want? Did Christy leave the meeting under the impression that we want the hospital shut down or, failing that, its surgery capability to remain unrestored; that we want the landscape destroyed by a half-built freeway, and the existing roads overloaded by container trucks which ignore the traffic laws that her police don’t enforce; that we don’t want direct bus service to Vancouver; that we wanted a neighbourhood depopulated to accommodate a power line; and that we really enjoy the almost complete absence of provincial services in one of B.C.’s larger communities? I hope so. That’s democracy.

August 31, 2011 The Delta Optimist A7 Letters to the Editor
Keep OWL in mind when donating flight and I thought about all the dedication that goes into rehabilitating these magnificent birds. The volunteers and staff who work tirelessly towards this goal, maintain the site and all resident birds, and go into the community to educate and inform the public about our feathered friends. We had
some wonderful conversations with young volunteers who were enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their subjects. I understand that the municipality of Delta is very helpful in supporting this venture but the provincial government at this time does not. The OWL facility receives injured birds from
all over the province, indeed the country, and does all this on a very limited budget. I urge all residents of Delta to take a moment to go and see the work that goes on there and perhaps to think of OWL when looking to make a donation to a very good cause. E. Stewart

Disastrous decisions will have to be changed
Editor: Re: Metro faces challenge trying to find home for incinerator, Community Comment, Aug. 10 Thanks to Sylvia Bishop for the excellent column on Metro Vancouver’s waste management decision. I attended a consultation session run by Metro some months ago. Many studies with the usual graphs were presented by staff and
members of the audience were permitted to comment. There was little support in the audience for incineration as I remember it and I have heard it was similar to other consultation sessions in the region. A learned professor, whose name escapes me for now, pointed out to staff the studies they had presented showed categorically the safest method of waste
management is anaerobic digesting, in every way except one: start-up cost. Metro’s subsequent decision to proceed with plans for incineration plants shows how well it listened. Is revenue for Metro Vancouver more important than our health? Fraser Health Authority’s surface look at our region’s health statistics fails to speak out on the role of
diesel emissions on asthma and childhood lung development for one. How will a healthy food zone around a school compensate for the effects of a highway running past it? We will have to change these disastrous decisions of government by replacing the perpetrators with those who clearly have more common sense. Wilma Haig

August 31, 2011 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor
NIMBYism making Tsaw. stagnate feelings with endless letters and speeches about saving farmland, food security, harm to birds and economically unfeasible eco-tourism alternatives for the land. Mr. Maksym just said “not in my backyard” and for that he has earned my respect. That being said, I disagree with him in every other regard and, in fact, I am of the view that the rest of Delta, and in particular, Tsawwassen, ought to stand up and “defend its quality of life” against the “Bay.” It is exactly the NIMBYism displayed, albeit honestly, in his letter that has caused Tsawwassen to stagnate for such a
long time that schools (read: Boundary Beach Elementary), hospitals and libraries are at increased risk of closure, seniors are forced to leave the community to find acceptable forms of housing, young families are financially precluded from moving to Tsawwassen and businesses are closing in the town core. Unfortunately, this has gone on so long that we are now playing “catch-up” and the result is development of a magnitude which may not have been necessary had those who oppose everything not opposed moderate densification over the past 20 years. The gates of Tsawwassen
should not be closed to others, as some would prefer, and the community of Boundary Bay should not have the ability to control what does and does not happen on a private owner’s land. I therefore ask Delta council to give due consideration to the Southlands proposal, as amended, with a view to the interests of the community as a whole and, in so doing, to contrast it with the alternative: Mayor Jackson’s ALR Inclusion proposal (read: industrial agriculture proposal).

Editor: Re: Bay must defend its quality of life, letter to the editor, Aug. 19 I read with interest the Aug. 19 letter authored by Rod Maksym from Boundary Bay espousing, among other things, that his precious beach community will be destroyed if the Southlands proposal is allowed and that the “Bay must defend its quality of life.” Despite strongly disagreeing with him, I wish to applaud his honesty. He is one of the first Boundary Bay residents to come right out and admit he just doesn’t want anything in his back yard without the need to disguise his true
Plenty of green space next to new housing was on the drawing boards, too. And Centennial Tides. Fact is development on an existing subdivision’s periphery makes more sense than a random bifurcating of the Southlands’ 580 acres. Imagine Monterra in the middle of Boundary Bay Park rather than where it is, in other words. Has Ladner Village lost its charm despite being encircled by countless lane housing tracts and condos? No, by any other descriptor the lachrymose pleas of
Boundary Bay’s permanent cottagers smack of understandable but unsupportable NIMBYism. Fact is, taken together, the 400 park acres proposed for Southlands plus Boundary Bay Regional Park’s nearly 400 acres means the area will feature 800 acres of green space contiguous to 100 acres of new housing. Would that my financial returns on investment paid out at such a favourable ratio as 8:1. W. Baird Blackstone
Mayor and council thanked for voting against development in half. The residents that would be affected took up a good portion of the council chambers, with several of us speaking against the proposed rezoning. The mayor and council members listened to our concerns (and extended the meeting to do so) which resulted in a unanimous vote against the proposal.
Realizing each development is unique, I would like to thank her Worship the Mayor, Lois Jackson, and members of the council for listening to the residents that were to be affected by this development and voting against it. The mayor and council have my vote! Robert J. McLean

Editor: Re: Bay must defend its quality of life, letter to the editor, Aug. 19 The pain and anguish flowing from the Boundary Bay pen of Rod Maksym are palpable and visceral.

Letters to the Editor
Invite all constituents to meeting Editor: Re: Premier in town for round-table, Aug. 24 How nice that Premier Clark came to our riding to listen to South Delta issues, but I don’t really call a “private meeting ... closed to the general public” a valid town hall meeting. If she hopes to hear what constituents have to say then she should be inviting all constituents, not just a select few.

dispersing high levels of EMF over the heads of the students and staff who must attend this school. As quoted by Debbie McBride, “there is a growing tendency for governments to not only ignore the wishes of the people who are affected by their policies, but to disparage and marginalize those who try to fight back.” Part of my recent communication with Vaughn Palmer, political
reporter with the Vancouver Sun, revolved around the Liberals losing the seat in South Delta, partially due to the power line backlash. It is important that we, the people, do not forget how the Liberals treated all of us in the last election and for all of us to stay active and remain current with B.C. politics.

That being said, I am confident that the chosen designates of local issues were well spoken and conveyed the entire riding’s concerns regarding the serious issues that continue to plague Delta. I am also hopeful that at least one of these representatives was able to discuss the power line issue — first and foremost, the pole that still sits in the parking lot of the only high school in town,
Editor: Re: Premier in town for round-table, Aug. 24 The premier says her recent visit to South Delta is an example of openness in government. But I say a closed-door meeting with a privately selected group of people
does not a town hall meeting make. I am disappointed that a meeting closed to the press and public is all South Delta gets from a government supposedly committed to listening to people and doing things differently. The public deserves bet-
ter. I also regret that the government appears to have made up its mind on controversial issues so important to the people of this riding. Calling Delta “the face of Canada to Asia” makes for a nice slogan, but people here understand that it
really means paving over the best agricultural land in Canada for highways, container storage, and further expansion at Deltaport. Personally I prefer that Delta be known as the unique “jewel of the Fraser delta.” Vicki Huntington, MLA

The best-ever time, again
Nostalgic September school assignment revisited BARBARA GUNN
4817 F Delta Street • 604.946.1057 Right next to Ladner Village Hardware the big Yellow Building.
Time for Back to School!
I did the assignment every year — every single September. Within days of returning to the classroom — still sporting the summer tan, but wearing a brand-new skirt and saddle shoes — my teacher would ask me to pull a pencil from my desk. She’d distribute pieces of foolscap to me and my classmates, and ask us to be quiet and to put on our back-to-school faces. And then she’d tell us what to do. “Boys and girls,” she would say. “I want you to write me a story. One page, double-spaced. Your title will be: How I spent my summer holiday.” From year to year, my story was pretty much the same. Had a Kool-Aid stand, I’d say. Went on a ferry with my family.
Played kick the can. Ate watermelon. Taught the dog tricks. Had a fight with my best friend and didn’t speak to her for two whole hours, but made up and had a sleepover the very next day. Read two Nancy Drew books, I would write. Took swimming lessons. Saw a bear. Went to the PNE. Got some new shoes. Stayed up until 10:30. Had the best-ever time. And once, at age 10 or 11: tried a tomato for the very first time. I haven’t written the assignment, oh, for the better part of a lifetime. But I’d rather like to try it again. Ate watermelon, I would say of the summer almost past. Saw four bears. Bought new shoes. And a bird bath. And some red shoes and a blue bathing suite and the cutest little summer shift. Played bocce, and lost. Played badminton, and won. Grilled steaks and corn on the cob. Made salsa, and ate 42 too many tortilla chips. Tried an oyster for only
the second time — and liked it. Shelled peas, and ate them raw. Had no Kool-Aid, but drank plenty of dry white wine while sitting on patios in White Rock and Vancouver and Whistler. And in my own back yard. Cast an HST ballot. Had a visit with my best friend, but didn’t have a fight. Went swimming, thanks to the lessons I took when I was a kid. Bypassed the PNE, but took in a ball game in Seattle. Went to work without a coat, because that’s what you do in the summer. Potted tomatoes, and watched them turn from green to pink to red. Read some books and played some rummy and squinted in the sun. And yes, I would tell my teacher, if I happened to have one now, I had the best-ever time. I love the fall, don’t get me wrong. But there’s magic in home-grown tomatoes.

Ladner’s Laura Jordison is co-ordinating a cleanup at the South Arm Marshes Wildlife Management Area on Sept. 17.
Delta locales to be tidied as part of shoreline cleanup DAVE WILLIS
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is scheduled for Sept. 17 to 25 and there are a number of planned cleanup sites in Delta. Ladner’s Laura Jordison is co-ordinating a cleanup at the South Arm Marshes Wildlife Management Area on Sept. 17. “I actually suggested this site because of its unique
designation,” says Jordison, who notes she likes to go there for bird watching. She says she’s noticed over the last few years that the area is being used as a place to party. The meeting location for the cleanup is at the north end of Ferry Road. It starts at 11:30 a.m. Jordison says volunteers could expect to be cleaning up for approximately two hours. Jordison, who first
heard about the cleanup through volunteering at the Vancouver Aquarium, has been leading cleanups for a couple of years in different locations. If you’re interesting in signing up to help out at a local cleanup visit http:// shorelinecleanup.ca/en. Over 2,200 kilometres of shoreline was cleaned and 98,000 kilograms of garbage was removed last year through the national program.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery
After many very successful shows around the Lower Mainland, The Roadshow is now here here in in Tsawwassen, Langley, BC. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.
jewellery she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”
During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for
At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She ﬁnally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare.
Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can ﬁnally afford
Canadian Collectors Roadshow
to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.
Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a
variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them.
A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that speciﬁc toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!
See you at the Roadshow!

“ON THE ROAD AGAIN” PAYMENT PLAN
Teen to play for Canada at Pan Am Games Tsawwassen’s Sara McManus will be youngest member of senior women’s national field hockey team in Mexico BY
Moving into a dorm for your first-year of university is daunting enough for an 18-year-old. Sara McManus will make that major transition in her life as a member of the national women’s
field hockey team preparing for its biggest tournament in four years. The Tsawwassen teen was the youngest player named to the 16-member Canadian squad for the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, Oct. 14-30. At stake is not
only a gold medal but an automatic berth into the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. Last week’s roster announcement culminates a remarkable 24 months for the recent South Delta secondary graduate who was invited to her first senior national camp dur-
ing the early weeks of her Grade 11 year. McManus split her time between the national junior and senior programs before eventually turning all her attention to the latter and blossoming from a promising prospect to a roster player.
A busy month ahead for 18-year-old Sara McManus will include studying at UBC and training with the national women’s team in preparation for the upcoming Pan American Games.
“I was definitely a little bit timid at first and it showed in the way I was playing,” recalled McManus of her early days with the senior team when she was just 16. “Eventually I just got more comfortable and the pressure came off of me while my confidence grew. I really didn’t know what was going to happen (with the final roster) but with a couple of injuries it started to get a little more clearer. It’s very exciting.” Her status as full-time national team player was perhaps quicker than expected but was part of her long term goals when she reviewed her post-secondary options months earlier. As one of the top graduating high school players in the country, McManus had plenty of options on both sides of the border, including lucrative scholarship offers from NCAA schools. Instead, she choose to stay close to home at UBC where the national team happens to train on a regular basis. She even planned her first semester course load appropriately, taking only three classes this fall in anticipation of the Pan Am Games. She will increase her workload to five classes for her second semester. “If I had played for an American school they
would have never given me the time off to come back home to train with the national team and then go to the Games,” said McManus. “I have taken some courses that gives me some flexibility (to miss some classes). Everything has worked out.” McManus will be training with the national team five days a week, leading up to its departure for Mexico. Argentina is the pre-tournament favourite with Canada seeded fourth, after finishing fifth at the 2007 Games. Only three players return from that team. “It’s definitely going to be a difficult task but we are going there with high expectations expecting to win,” added McManus. Meanwhile, McManus’ longtime high school and junior national teammate Shannon Herold has wasted little time in making an impact at Stanford University in her freshman season. Herold cracked the starting line-up and drew an assist in the Cardinals 4-3 season-opening victory over Hofstra at the Husky Invitational at the University of Connecticut. She also earned a helper as the 20th ranked Cardinals fell 4-2 to No. 4 Connecticut on Monday.
Tsawwassen soccer players enjoy successful season in Super Y League Ford, West Coast Capitals (Victoria) and Thompson-Okanagan (Kelowna). Teams finishing in first or second place secure spots in the USL Super Y-League Championships which will be held this December in Tampa. Five Tsawwassen players have earned themselves a trip to Florida. Eric Swanson, of the U13 Coastal boys team, and four from Coastal’s U14 boys team — Brendan Waterman, Vikram Puri, Noah Chimich, and Sam Dyck. The U14s, led by TSC Academy coaches Michael

Perucho and Doug Dyck, finished at the top of the Y-League’s Northwest Division. Meanwhile, four girls with Tsawwassen connections have been plying their trade for various provincial teams this summer. Olivia Sheppard, who will be suiting up for the South Fraser U14 girls in the upcoming inaugural B.C. Premier League season, excelled with the U13 provincial team, while Tsawwassen product and Semiahmoo Metro standout Hannah Carrothers has had a run out with the U14 side.
Alessia Azermadhie and Emma Kallner, both of the Coastal “A” Cup U15 finalists Tsawwassen Thunder, have enjoyed success with the U15 squad, culminating with a gold medal at the recent Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops with a 3-1 over Manitoba in the final. Corner kicks.... Tsawwassen’s U16 Gold girls team is looking for a dedicated goalkeeper or another field player for the 2011-12 season. Anyone interested can contact Chris at 604-943-1081.

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must ﬁll each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can ﬁgure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle! Aug. 30
