Hospital charting course

Expansion plans in works as need for greater diagnostic imaging & lab services identified BY


The most challenging part awaits as expansion plans for Delta Hospital are beginning to take shape. “We have identified the renovation and expansion of both our diagnostic imaging and our lab services as our priorities,” said Annette Garm, the hospital’s site director, noting the next step is to

determine the funding model. “That’s why we are getting kind of excited. We’ll be able to come to some sort of funding agreement on how that can proceed as soon as possible.” Noting the availability of land isn’t going to be a problem, she said the Ministry of Health, through Fraser Health, the Delta Hospital Foundation and Delta Hospital Auxiliary are the three partners that will make the new

laboratory and medical imaging wing a reality. That first project is expected to cost millions. “We’re hoping to meet in the near future to discuss how we can forge a partnership to move this forward in the next two to four years,” Garm noted. According to the foundation, after the laboratory and medical imaging department expansion is complete, the medium term goals (five to 15 years) are to increase


medical beds and grow surgical daycare as well as mental health programs. One of the recommendations is the addition of a 25-bed psychiatric unit. Long-term opportunities (20 years and beyond) are to develop new health care facilities as well as to upgrade residential care facilities. See HOSPITAL page 3

The Ladner Legion will be honoured next week for its support of Variety — The Children’s Charity. The charity will be holding its 43rd annual Heart Awards Dinner on Tuesday, June 12 at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond. The Heart Awards Dinner honours long-serving members, volunteers and corporate supporters, celebrating their many achievements and exceptional service to Variety and the children of British Columbia. This year, the recipient of the Angel Award, which is presented to a person or group that has been a major benefactor to Variety and its work with children who have special needs, is the Ladner Legion. “It’s beyond exciting. This is huge. There’s a lot of service clubs and other organizations that have been donating for years to Variety. It’s very exciting,” said Jacky Hillairet, the local branch’s manager. The Ladner branch has been fundraising for Variety for over 20 years, donating over $50,000 in that time. The Ladies Auxiliary has also been fundraising for about 10 years and donated approximately $10,000. “We’re big supporters of children and, of course, seniors and veterans,” said Hillairet. She credited the branch’s members for making the donations possible. “We couldn’t do it without our members. It’s the members who come in and spend money at the Legion,” she explained. Variety is dedicated to raising funds and distributing grants throughout B.C. to inspire hope, enrich lives and build a better future for children who have special needs.

Budget bill protests hit Ladner Group rallies outside MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay’s office in opposition to sweeping federal government legislation BY


About two dozen people held a protest outside MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay’s Ladner constituency office last Saturday to raise awareness about the federal government’s omnibus budget bill. They were among thousands across the country protesting Bill C-38. Critics say the Conservative government is determined to push through the bill with the minimum of input from Parliament. The wide-sweeping bill makes changes to over 70 laws, ranging from Old Age Security to Employment Insurance to immigration. The bill also includes new crime legislation. Findlay, who spoke briefly to the protestors while in her vehicle, is parliamentary secretary for the minister of justice and attorney general. She has been involved in hearing submissions on that legislation, noting it’s to make streets, families and communities safer by taking a tougher stance on child sexual offenders, cracking down on drug trafficking and improving the overall efficiency of the judicial system. The omnibus bill would also significantly change the environmental review


Delta-Richmond East Conservative MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay talks to protestors outside her Ladner constituency office on Saturday. Thousands of Canadians across the nation protested against the wide-sweeping C-Bill 38. Among their concerns is new legislation they say guts environmental laws to facilitate economic development. process, something that prompted four former federal fisheries ministers to pen a letter critical of the regulatory changes. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and other ministers on the weekend spoke in favour of the legislation, but critics contend it’s simply geared to speed up

HOSPITAL from page 1 Last year, Fraser Health launched a planning initiative aimed at determining what services the Ladner facility should provide as well as what building additions might be needed. The Master Concept Plan is to provide direction over the next 20 years. The Delta Hospital Foundation shared the cost of the planning exercise, which was completed earlier this year. Fraser Health and the Ministry of Health have since signed off on the plan. “The Master Concept

Plan is defining the role of Delta Hospital within the network of acute and community services within Fraser Health. We were trying to prioritize those service enhancements and required capital investments,” said Garm. In an interview last fall, Dr. Robert Shaw, head of internal medicine, said Delta Hospital also needs additional acute care beds, but there’s only so much space available in the facility. However, there is enough land for potential expansion.

such developments as the Enbridge pipeline through northern B.C. It’s not clear what the environmental review changes will mean when it comes to the proposed Terminal 2 container port and related projects at Roberts Bank, but local resident Kevin Garvey, “I think if the site plan allows for us to have more room — mind you we’re doing all this with two exam rooms and very often we’re having two or three clinics at the same time we’d be able to invite more specialists to come here,” he said. Shaw pointed out Delta has a strong group of family physicians looking after their patients’ care. The Delta Hospital Foundation notes that in 2011, the hospital had 583 staff, 29,000 emergency visits, 42,000 diagnostic visits, 8,200 surgical cases, 7,000 ambulatory visits, 50 acute care beds and 30 spe-

who took part in Saturday’s Ladner protest, believes those projects will now be rammed through without proper oversight. Noting people from a broad range of concerns and interests took part in Saturday’s rally, Garvey told the Optimist it’s disappointing B.C. Conservative MPs

are not raising concerns. “We’ve got 21 MPs here that are Conservative and I think they could have an impact with all the water we’ve got here, the foreshore, the Fraser River, the ocean. All of these environmental laws are going to directly affect us in a very negative way,” he said.

Saying he voted Conservative in the last election, Garvey said there’s no doubt South Delta will be hard hit by gutted environmental protection laws. “I had the opportunity to ask her (Findlay) if she would vote against the bill and she said she wouldn’t, she’d be voting with the government. I tried to outline all the concerns we have in Delta, particularly with the fast tracking of the Environmental Protection Act and giving ministers the ability to fast track projects. “In Delta, I’m concerned about these rail projects and the second (port) terminal. I have no doubt those will come into play... this is where it starts. The feds make the laws that allow all this stuff to happen,” he said. Saying Prime Minister Stephen Harper is refusing to split up the budget bill, opponents believe if it passes unchanged, it will put a black mark on Canadian democracy. “We are looking for 13 ‘hero’ Conservative MPs who will work together to stop the budget, split it apart, and start over by inviting Canadians to help them craft laws that will work better for all of us,” said Jamie Biggar, executive director of, a national organization.

Tsaw. United celebrates HARRIS NURSERY milestone this weekend & FLORIST BY

50 Years Serving Delta • Two Locations to Serve You Better



A local church is celebrating its 50th anniversary this month. It was June 10, 1962 when ground was broken for Tsawwassen United Church. For many years before the construction, the United church congregation of Ladner and Tsawwassen worshipped at Ladner United Church. However, after the area began booming with the opening of the George Massey Tunnel, it was decided that the population warranted a second United church in Tsawwassen. A parcel of land on 53rd Street was purchased and construction of the building followed a few years later. The first United church services in Tsawwassen were held in April 1962 in Boundary Bay School. Fundraising, design and construction began and two years later, with the building nearing completion, the congregation decided to change the name of the church to Tsawwassen


Ground was broken 50 years ago this week for construction of Tsawwassen United Church. United (it had formerly been called South Delta United Church). With a quickly growing congregation, the church expanded with an addition in the early 1980s. Rev. Dan Kirkegaard, who has been with the church for a year and a half, said there are still a good number of members of the original congregation attending today. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the church has two events planned for this weekend. On Saturday, a catered dinner with entertainment will be held at the KinVillage Community Centre. Rebel Theatre will perform and there will be music from the 1960s, with

the opportunity for members of the audience to sing. Kirkegaard said a number of former ministers of the church would attend the dinner. Tickets cost $30 and can be purchased through the church office. On Sunday, the church will celebrate with a special service beginning at 10 a.m. Kirkegaard said there would be special music and guest musicians. A light luncheon will follow the service. Kirkegaard said the church is also looking at a permanent feature to recognize the anniversary. For more information, or to purchase tickets to the celebration dinner, call 604943-2911.

Ex-gymnast not letting arthritis slow her down

604 943 4661

Tsawwassen resident Kadi Nicholson was just 15 when a virus changed her life. The high level gymnast got really sick, but even once she recovered her body had changed. She started experiencing fatigue and severe joint pain. Nicholson, who is now 23, said the pain was “really random and cyclical” and after seeing a doctor she was referred to B.C. Children’s Hospital where she was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (also known as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis). At the time Nicholson was a high level gymnast, training 25 hours a week and aiming to compete at a national level. She had her eye on a gymnastics scholarship to a U.S. university. “Grade 11 and 12 was really hard but I worked through it,” she said. She made it to the Canadian National Championship but soon after had to make the difficult decision to give up gymnastics. “It was devastating,” she said. However, Nicholson decided to re-focus her life and turn what could have been a negative experience around. She took her love of sports and movement and starting pursuing a degree in kinesiology at Simon Fraser University. “I was always doing back flips on the floor but I

changed to doing back flips in my head,” she said. Nicholson graduated with her bachelor of science degree last year and is hoping to earn a masters in physiotherapy. For now, she’s working as a kinesiologist at a clinic in White Rock that deals with a lot of patients with arthritis. She volunteers at a camp for children living with arthritis and is participating in the third annual Walk to Fight Arthritis this weekend. The walk, which includes both one- and five-kilometre routes, aims to raise funds for research and awareness for one of the leading causes of disability in Canada. Nicholson said her arthritis is under control right now, but she still deals with pain, stiffness and fatigue on a daily basis. She said she gets pain in her fingers and back and often has morning stiffness, which can sometimes make getting going difficult. She has a message for others living with the disease: “If you have arthritis, you’re not alone,” she said, adding that while she has arthritis, “It doesn’t have me. I’m a better person for it.” The third annual Walk to Fight Arthritis takes places in communities across Canada on Sunday, June 10. The Lower Mainland walk will take place in the Olympic Village at 10 a.m. For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.walktofightarthritis. ca.

Car boot sales returning Come join us at our to Centennial Beach lot Ninth season gets underway this Saturday morning

The ninth season of one of Tsawwassen’s most popular summer events, the Car Boot Sales at Centennial Beach, is scheduled to begin this Saturday at 8:30 a.m. The sales, which take place in the parking lot, will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of every month through to September, weather permitting. They are run by the Cammidge House Committee. Combining the sales with the mid-June opening of the Centennial Beach food and leisure centre, and the recent improvements to the children’s playground, will make Boundary Bay Regional Park a favourite family venue in the months ahead. The new Centennial Beach facility will provide washrooms, change rooms and the food concession will offer an extensive patio area as well as some indoor seating.

Most of the items sold are often used and the car boot sale is the ideal way to recycle and earn a few dollars in the process. It’s also a great opportunity for apartment and condo dwellers to participate in a

garage-type sale. Participants only have to do a little spring cleaning, load up their vehicles and bring a table or tarpaulin to display their goods. Those looking to participate are asked to show up around 8 a.m. A member of the volunteer committee is always on hand to offer guidance. The only cost is $10 per allocated space.

MURPHY’S LAW Vicki Huntington has always been one to stick to her principles, so it’s not surprising to see that she’s out of step with her legislative colleagues when it comes to Family Day. The independent MLA was one of only three provincial politicians to vote against legislation last week when it came time to decide which Monday in February would become B.C.’s newest statutory holiday. It’s not that Huntington is against giving people another day off during that long, often dreary gap between New Year’s Day and Good Friday, it’s just that she believes it puts an undue burden on employers, particularly small business, at a time when they can least afford it. With a sluggish economy, a higher minimum wage and a costly switch back to the old PST/GST system among the many obstacles facing business these days, it’s hard to argue with the Delta South MLA’s contention that now isn’t the right time to be adding another financial burden to the mix. You would think the Liberals, who have introduced the B.C. Jobs Plan since Christy Clark took over as premier last year, would be on board with that type of reasoning, but I guess when you’re down in the polls and desperate to cull favour wherever you can find it, a new statutory holiday has a way of making sense. So with her vote against Family Day, does that mean Huntington can be found to the right of the Liberals, a place now being occupied by John Cummins’ upstart Conservative party? Was it just a coincidence that one of the other two MLAs to vote against last week’s legislation was none other than John van Dongen, the former Liberal cabinet minister who joined forces with the Conservatives earlier this year? There has been speculation in some corners that Huntington, who worked in Cummins’ constituency office for a spell and was endorsed by the former DeltaRichmond East MP in the last provincial election, could give up her independent ways and run under the Conservative banner next spring. The fact her father was a Tory MP adds further credence to such a possible affiliation, although she strikes me as a greener shade of blue than most of your typical Conservatives. It was, after all, just one vote, so perhaps it would be foolish to read too much into it. However, when it comes to fiscal policies, the former longtime municipal councillor would most likely be comfortable with what Cummins and Co. have to offer. Her stance on Family Day is proof of that.

Advice needed from experts; public given say at hearings ED RIES

COMMUNITY COMMENT I admit to an ingrained skepticism about committees, particularly Delta’s citizens’ advisory committees ... but not all of them. Delta says advisory committees are “established to assist (Delta) council and provide opportunities for public involvement in municipal matters.” Why? Don’t we pay Delta’s taxes in reasonable expectation that councillors and staff are capable of conducting our municipality’s business? Why must Delta provide “opportunities for public involvement?” Public hearings are mandated and intended for that exact purpose. If advisory committee members are qualified only by civic interest and a wish to offer “free” advice, then Delta is wasting money. Free advice can be very costly and has at times proven worthless as evidenced by its rejection in subsequent public hearings. The recent CUPE contract stipulates that Delta’s inside employees

work “seven (7) consecutive hours per day, eight-thirty (8:30) A.M. to four-thirty (4:30) P.M. with one (1) hour off for lunch Monday through Friday.” “Compensation for overtime worked ... shall be provided when an inside employee is required to work in excess of seven (7) hours in the regular work day.” Advisory committee meetings are typically at 7 p.m. on weekdays. For meetings starting then or Saturday staff must be paid additional hours at twice their hourly rate. Imagine what staff overtime cost us for two years of Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee meetings! Then add the time of hundreds of residents who attended their many public information meetings. It was a high price to pay for “public involvement in municipal matters;” matters that arguably ended in failure. The committee was unneeded, as evidenced by approval of the area plan that staff finally drafted without it. The efforts of well-intentioned volunteers resulted in waste and delay. Now seven committees with 53 well-meaning volunteers and 13 staff are assigned to review and comment on Century Group’s new OCP and zoning requests! Why? Couldn’t two or three staff members perform this review in a few

days or a week, and do so on regular time? Delta has 17 advisory committees. One is required by statute. Others are restricted to volunteers with professional qualifications staff lacks and needs. I applaud and thank them. But just think of the money we’d save if Delta cancelled the rest and assigned staff to do the work we pay them for! Councillors assigned to chair the committees could also avoid many needless evening and weekend meetings. Delta should rely on public hearings to learn community wishes. They are required and that is their sole purpose. If they need community input on matters more urgent or not subject to a hearing, they can learn it quickly, precisely and economically with well-designed polling. If they need expertise they lack, they can either retain a consultant or establish a committee of members with the needed expertise. With these few exceptions, councillors and staff, not volunteers, should perform the municipality’s work. It’s time to review Delta’s 17 advisory committees. Retain those that provide critically needed assistance. Thank and disbanded the remainder whose purpose is “public involvement.”

June 6, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

End of the road for funding

Editor: I get boundless pleasure each June reading the letter from Mayor Lois Jackson that is enclosed with my annual municipal tax bill. This year I learned the municipal tax increase of 2.9 per cent (versus the Vancouver metro area inflation rate of 1.9 per cent) was due to a 0.9 per cent increase for general services, and a special two per cent increase for a Neighbourhood Roads and Improvement Plan. Of course, maintaining and improving streets and sidewalks could not be considered a typical expense for a municipality;

thus the special tax category is required. A colour-coded summary of the plan was also enclosed with the tax bill. Interestingly, this summary contained no cost information. I did learn there are 15 projects scheduled for 2012, none of which are in Tsawwassen; 12 projects for 2013, four of which are in Tsawwassen; and 11 projects for 2014, none of which are in Tsawwassen. In total, four of the 38 projects are in Tsawwassen. That’s your reward for not voting for Jackson last November. Steve Graham

Mayor shows displeasure for Tsaw.

Editor: I notice from the letter enclosed along with the property tax notice that Mayor Lois Jackson is ignoring Tsawwassen with her road improvement plan, at least for the current year. She seems to continu-

ally find these little ways to show her displeasure for the people that refuse to vote for her ongoing dictatorship. Surely it’s time we broke away from Delta and started to manage our own affairs. Philip Webb

Council of Canadians willing to work with anyone that’s trying to preserve farmland Editor: Re: Farmland future on agenda, May 18 We at the Delta/ Richmond chapter of the Council of Canadians have spoken out with many others on the proposed industrialization of our farmland. In your article it stated that we “support” MLA

Vicki Huntington. We need to clarify that as a nonprofit, non-partisan organization, we cannot support a political party or a politician per se. We are willing to work with all who are in this fight to save our farmland. That would include politicians, individuals or groups,

regardless of affiliation, willing to take a stand and take actions to preserve our farmland. The Council of Canadians and others are organizing a march and rally to protect our farmland and stop port expansion. It’s set for Saturday June 16 at 1 p.m. at Magee Park,

Outstanding RCMP officers shouldn’t be on same page as Robinson

Editor: I would like to express my disappointment in the placing of the article titled Family going back in time next to the article titled Robinson’s sentencing postponed until July. Given both articles dealt

June 6, 2012 The Delta Optimist A11 Letters to the Editor

Caregiver has qualifications even if licence not required

Editor: Re: Help out there to make right childcare choice, May 30 I am amazed at almost everyone’s lack of knowledge as far as regulation for childcare workers goes. I am a registered, licence not required (LNR) family childcare provider. I care for two children in my home and have the same requirements as the licensed facilities, regulated by the government. I am registered with Childcare Options and have to have a criminal record search done on everyone in my home that is 12 years of age or older every five years. We also have pediatric first aid and CPR, which has to be renewed every three years. We are also required to get a doctor’s note to say we

are mentally and physically fit to care for children. We are required to complete the Early Beginnings course and must attend at least two workshops per year to maintain our registration. Like licensed facilities, we also have our policies and procedures in place. We have contracts and parent handbooks, just like the licensed facilities do. We are monitored as well with home visits to ensure the facility is a safe and clean environment. What most people don’t realize is the provider of a licence not required facility has the exact same requirements as that of licensed providers, just the home requirements aren’t as strict, but there is very little difference there as well. People are confused with

the differences between the stay at home moms and the licence not required as the “stay at home moms” are within their rights to run an unregulated childcare but I would think most parents, given the correct information, would prefer a facility that has a provider that has been educated in this field and has safety procedures in place. The benefits of being registered with Childcare Options resource and referral service is we are viewed as professionals and treated as such. Parents looking for quality childcare are given a list of both licensed and licence not required caregivers that best suits their needs. Sharon McLean Owner/operator Busy Bee Family Childcare

Money for barn but not for heritage house

Editor: Re: Big bucks for barn relocation, May 30 Let me get this straight:

any money to save Kittson House? Really? What’s wrong with this picture? Ted Laturnus

Treatment eases arthritis pain in dogs

Tsawwassen Animal Hospital offers stem cell therapy A local veterinary clinic recently added a cuttingedge treatment. Dr. Tina Gemeinhardt, owner of Tsawwassen Animal Hospital, is excited to be offering stem cell therapy to animals suffering from arthritis and joint issues. “I’m excited about trying to bring some relief to dogs that are living in pain,” she said. The therapy, which uses stem cells harvested from fat that is surgically removed from the dog, is, in most cases, able to offer relief from the pain and stiffness associated with

arthritis. Gemeinhardt said once it’s determined the therapy is the right course of treatment for an animal, body fat is surgically removed and sent to a lab in California where the stem cells are harvested. The harvested stem cells are then sent back to the vet clinic within 48 hours and injected into the joints in question. Gemeinhardt, who added the treatment to the clinic’s list of services earlier this year, said it’s not quite clear exactly how the stem cells

work. “Stem cells seem to inherently know what needs to be done in that area,” she said. The treatment is not a cure-all — the arthritis is still there but the symptoms are lessened — and it does not work instantly. The vet said most animals start to notice a difference in a month or so, and some might require follow up injections. She said about 85 per cent of animals receiving stem cell therapy have had a beneficial response, while 15 per cent saw no response. Beatrice, a seven-yearold chow chow, has seen remarkable results. Owner Rose McClelland said Beatrice had been having problems with arthritis in her hips for years and medication wasn’t working any more. “Beatrice had been on drugs for years and did not tolerate it well,” she said. McClelland said she and her husband lead an active lifestyle with Beatrice, but the canine was having an increasingly difficult time maintaining her usual level

beginning at dusk. On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall will host Night at the Museum, which will be preceded by a block party with a live stage, games and activities starting at 6:30 p.m. The movie will be shown in the mall parking lot close to the library. The BIA is partnering with the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen, the Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club and the TOOBs to provide the concession and popcorn. All proceeds from these sales will be directed to the Rivers Ends Rangers, the senior group of the Ladner/Tsawwassen Girl Guides that will be providing support during the movie nights. Local community groups and businesses will organize activities and demonstrations. To learn more about these events, go to www.


The evening will begin with a pre-movie festival at 6:30 p.m. with the movie starting at dusk. Congratulations to 22year-old Tsawwassen resident and Starbucks employee Erin Dybvig for winning the Pick the Flick contest. “I have seen this movie like 15 times and it is one of my all time favourite movies,” said Dybvig. “I will definitely invite my friends to join me that night; it will be a lot of fun.” She will get VIP seats for herself and 15 friends as well as a free round of popcorn. Saturday, Aug. 11 at Diefenbaker Park, presented by Vancity, will be a special evening as it is the Tsawwassen Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration. In honour of the royal theme, the movie shown that evening will be The Lion King. Events kick off at 5 p.m. with the movie


The Business Improvement Association (BIA) of Tsawwassen has now finalized the lineup for its fifth annual outdoor movie night series this summer. The Pick the Flick contest, which ran throughout May, asked the community to vote for the movie to be shown on Saturday, July 28 at Diefenbaker Park, presented by Randy’s Tirecraft and Tsawwassen Collision. From early on in the contest, there was a clear winner. Loved by teens and young adults since the mid1980s when it was first released, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is the story of a teenager (played brilliantly by Matthew Broderick) who becomes a legend in his own time thanks to his uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Ferris calls in sick, takes off with his shy best friend and girlfriend, “borrows” a Ferrari and embarks on an epic day through the streets of Chicago. He tries to escape the claws of his high school principal Rooney, who is determined to catch Bueller in the act of class cutting. “This movie will draw the interest of our teen to young adult crowd, which hardly ever gets to have an event catered to them in our community,” said BIA executive director Ana Arciniega. “So I am especially pleased that it was selected to open up our movie series this summer. I can’t wait to show it.”

Husband protecting turf from masked intruders BARBARA GUNN

LIVING MATTERS We are going to battle again — this time, in the front yard. The last time we went to battle — make that, the last time the husband went to battle, since he’s been battling more than I — was seven or eight years ago. The circumstances were the same. And so was the enemy. We were putting down sod in the back. The enemy thought this was amusing. The enemy, in fact, might have assumed we put down the sod entirely for his pleasure. The enemy primarily appeared when we weren’t there to watch over the sod: at night, when we were asleep. When we awoke, however, there was evidence he’d been there. It was clear the enemy, and probably a half dozen of his friends, had made a sport of the sod, and had picked up sections

and tossed them — Frisbeelike — all over the property. The husband, let’s just say, was driven to near hysteria. Recently, as I say, we felt it was time to address some issues in the front of the house. We called on the landscapers to put down some sod. The husband remembered the last time. “This is NOT going to happen again,” he informed me, his face becoming the slightest bit red. “There is NO WAY those blasted raccoons are going to destroy the front yard. NO WAY at all.” The husband did what any seasoned war vet would have done under the circumstances. He spent $118 on tent pegs, which he hammered into the sod. And then he went on patrol. He spent every available second of the day watching over the newly laid yard. And recalling the enemy best enjoyed nocturnal fun, he also woke up four or five or six times every night to patrol outside, scanning the yard with a flashlight, much like a prison warden

watching for inmates on the prowl. “Aren’t you exhausted?” I asked him on day five. “Of course I’m exhausted,” he said, sounding decidedly grumpy. “But SOMEONE has to do this!” Turns out someone also had to address the enemy when it appeared — as we knew it would — one day when we were giving the grass a sprinkle. The husband, who had anticipated the meeting and had armed himself with weapons, began to reach into his pockets and hurl pebbles at the enemy. The enemy blinked. I swear I saw it yawn. The raccoon stood his ground, looked at my husband and then turned and walked away — probably not because he’d been scared off, but because he wanted to find something to eat. The husband looked at me. “He’ll be back,” he said. “And I’ll be ready.” Of that, I have little doubt. The husband hates the enemy. But I think he secretly loves the war.

Students, parents, staff and alumni of Cliff Drive Elementary in Tsawwassen took part in a community fair last Friday to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary. The event included live music, games and an official cake cutting. Originally called Tsawwassen Elementary, the school opened in 1962 during a time of tremendous growth in Delta following the opening of the George Massey Tunnel three years earlier.

Open Stage at arts centre for Seniors Week in Delta A special Open Stage is planned for tomorrow evening at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre in recognition of Seniors Week in Delta. Pete Wilson, an eclectic performer, emcees the show, which has been taking place most months for the past nine years. Blues singer and player Ken Palmateer, Willie Nelson impersonator Pete Dobson and accordion/ piano player Vi Krall will all take part in the evening, which gets underway at 7:30 p.m.

A glimpse of Granny’s Back in Town (a show at the Firehall Centre for the Arts in North Delta on June 14) will be presented by Patti McGregor and John O’Sullivan. McGregor will be taking the show on the road to Alberta in July. O’Sullivan, an Irishman raised in London, England, will be doing a guest spot with some Celtic songs and stories. The show reflects McGregor’s quirky sense of humour. The evening has attracted

It’s been an amazing year for Alexander Gaio of the 828 Hurricane Air Cadet Squadron. He just received his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award for achievements in fitness, community service, computer skills and an adventurous journey.

On the Water Boating and Marine Feature

Are You and Your Boat Ready for the Season?

By John Gullick – Canadian Safe Boating Council

Every year thousands of boaters go out on the water without giving any thought to how prepared either they or their boats are for the season ahead. Personal preparation involves ensuring you have on-hand your Pleasure Craft Operator Card, up to date nautical charts, a pre-departure checklist and have obtained a reliable marine weather forecast. When it comes to vessel preparedness, one of the first things to ensure is that your boat and engine(s) are mechanically sound. Remember that, throughout most of Canada, boats have been in storage for a number of months over the winter and may not operate as efficiently as they did last season. Make sure that you follow the recommended maintenance schedule found in your boat’s owner’s manual.

The River House Marina, Restaurant & Pub would like to thank you for your support and patronage.

Please drop in by boat, we have guest parking!


The Canadian government also mandates that specific safety equipment be carried on board.This equipment can be of great benefit and can mean the difference between a great day out on the water and a potential disaster.


5825 - 60th Avenue, Delta, B.C. V4K 4E2 Phone: (604) 940-4496 Fax: (604) 946-7502 Cell: (604) 619-8408

Required items vary depending on boat length but the list below highlights the things that, at minimum, need be carried on board, in good working condition and within reach each time you go out: Compulsory Items required on a typical vessel 6 meters or less in length: • The vessels license or registration if powered by a motor of 7.5 kw (10 hp) or more • A Canadian approved flotation device (PFD) in good repair and of appropriate size for every person on board • Fire extinguisher (depending on type of engine, gas tank or cooking appliances on board) • Watertight flashlight or pyrotechnic distress signal requirements (flares) • Sound signaling device • Buoyant heaving line (minimum 15 meters in length) • Paddle or anchor with at least 15 meters of rode and/or chain • Re-boarding device

Music to fill Memorial this weekend Delta Music Makers host eighth annual Ladner Bandfest, which will feature 21 performances over two days

Now in its eighth year, the award-winning Ladner Bandfest will be bigger and better than ever. A record 20 adult community bands and one orchestra will perform on two stages in Memorial Park this Saturday and Sunday. All residents are invited to enjoy great music throughout the weekend at no cost. The Sidney Concert Band from Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Traveling Band are both making their inaugural appearance this year. Two bands from Washington state — the Orcas Island Community Band and the North Cascades Concert Band — will also perform. The host Delta Music Makers are on stage Saturday afternoon, while the other band from musicrich Delta, the Delta Concert Band, will have the honour of closing the festival on Sunday. The audience will also enjoy performances by bands from Vancouver, North Vancouver, Port Moody, West Vancouver, Langley, Surrey, Maple Ridge, Burnaby, Richmond and New Westminster. The organizing committee, comprising members of the Delta Music Makers


The Ladner Bandfest is earning a deserved reputation, including an award, accepted by chair Curt Jantzen (above), from the Delta Chamber of Commerce last year and several other bands, is proud of the success of this event. The members work all year to produce what has become the largest gathering of adult musicians in Western Canada, and their efforts were recognized last fall by the Delta Chamber of Commerce at its annual Hats off to Excellence gala. The award has solidified the festival’s place in Delta’s calendar of remarkable community events. “Bring your lawn chairs and your whole family to Memorial Park and enjoy a weekend of fabulous band music,” says festival chair and Ladner resident Curt Jantzen. “Large crowds tend to gather during the afternoon hours, but don’t miss the outstanding bands on the morning schedule both

days. “For musicians, the magic of this event lies in hearing all the other bands,” says Jantzen. “By definition, a community band performs in its own community, thus rarely hears other groups. The Ladner Bandfest allows this opportunity, while also providing a weekend of outstanding free entertainment for the public.” On Saturday afternoon, MLA Vicki Huntington will say a few words to the musicians and audience, and esteemed band leader Dal Richards will drop by to lend his support and to conduct one number by the Vancouver Traveling Band. On Sunday, Mayor Lois Jackson and Canadian music composer Robert

Buckley have each been invited to drop by to support the Ladner Bandfest and the work of all the community bands. Large tents will be set up for the audience to escape from the hot sun that’s possible in mid-June. Food services will be provided by the TOOBs, a service club that does many good things in the community, focusing mainly on youth and seniors. Various businesses and

groups assist in the success of the Ladner Bandfest. The list includes Delta Parks Recreation and Culture, Long and McQuade Music, Matterhorn Music, Prussin Music, the Delta Optimist, Bri-Tek Fire Protection, Budget Truck Rentals, Marketwire, Envision Financial, ReMax Realty, Dominion Macklem Mortgage, Thrifty Foods, Outdoor Broadcast Network, Cobs Bread, Save-On-Foods, Archetype

Printing, Delta Cable and others. “It is a year-long effort by the hard working organizing committee,” says Jantzen, “and each year the festival runs more smoothly and adds a few new features. This year, for example, we have a company who is setting up an instrument repair and maintenance shop on site.” For more information, visit http://ladnerbandfest. org.

110 students hit finish line in SDSS triathlon

Popular PE class event culminates two month training program as teens race through the streets of Tsawwassen BY


Forget about winning football or soccer provincial championships. Arguably the greatest athletic achievement at South Delta secondary school takes place each May and involves over 100 students. The 16th annual SDSS triathlon was held May 23 and was once again deemed a great success thanks to the efforts of staff, students and the entire community. Organized each year by longtime PE teacher Tamara Jobke, the triathlon is mandatory for every student in the school’s PE 11 and 12 classes. An in-depth two month training program prepares the participants for the trek through Tsawwassen and Boundary Bay that included a 200 metre swim at the Winskill Aquatic Centre, a 11 km bike ride and a 3.5 km run. This year’s event was highlighted by Erin MacDougall setting a new best-ever time in the girls division with a clocking of 39 minutes and 58 seconds. What’s most impressive, however, is seeing the versatility and athleticism of so many students to be able to complete the challenging course. Training included swimming lessons at Winskill, bike rides, regular block runs and even tackling the stairs at Fred Gingell Park. To pull off such an event, the school needs help from many including parents and the Delta Police with traffic control. Jobke had high praise for the work of the school’s liaison officer Cst. Mike Atkinson. “The community support is wonderful,” said Jobke. “Mike really stepped up for us.” Jobke also singled out donations from Safeway and McDonald’s, as well as assistance from Sandra Adamson and Kristi Schofield’s classes, along with students from the SDSS Hockey Academy. Here is a rundown of all the triathlon finishers: 1. Quinn Lattimer (36:08) 2. Brent McNeil (37:41) 3. Kevin Miller (38:02) 4. Dustin Triano (38:17) 5. Erin MacDougall (39:58) 6.

The B.C. basketball community is mourning the loss of a longtime coach who made a significant impact in the Delta school district. Duncan Anderson passed away on Sunday from complications of a stroke. He was 66. He is survived by his wife Judy and his extended family, including four children. Arrangements for a memorial service were still being finalized as of press time. Anderson’s long coaching tenure included an impressive stint at Delta secondary school where he guided the Pacers senior boys team to the provincial “AAA” tournament in 1993, ending a 14-year drought for the program. That squad was led by Navi Sekhon who went on to thrive at the collegiate and university levels and is considered one of the greatest players to come out of the Ladner school. He credits much of his success to Anderson who he had remained in contact with over the years. “This is just devastat-

Duncan Anderson (far right) coached the Delta Pacers to the provincial “AAA” tournament in 1993. ing to all of us,” said an emotional Sekhon now a Burnaby firefighter. “It’s a big loss for his family, all his friends and basketball in B.C. He gave 30 years of his life to making a difference for kids and made a great impact on so many.” “I had known him since Grade 7 when I went to one of his summer camps. The best thing about him was just his passion for the game. It was second to none. I just knew he was always going to be there for me.”

Anderson had retired from full-time teaching but was still working as a substitute in Surrey and was helping out with the basketball program at Seaquam secondary. His run at Delta secondary included coaching his oldest son John for four seasons as the two commuted to Ladner from their North Delta home. The Pacers’ Agrodome appearance in 1993 coincided with Anderson’s final season coaching the senior boys team.

“The only thing that he valued more than his passion for basketball was the love and devotion he had for his wife, Judy, and their family,” said friend and longtime DSS athletic director Jim Lawrence who retired last year. He was an outstanding teacher and a highly respected colleague to all of us.” Besides his volunteer duties coaching at the high school level, Anderson also was involved with Basketball B.C. as a provincial team coach.

Ladner Storm wins BMO Team of the Week award

The Ladner Storm U10 development girls soccer team has already scored a major victory off the field that could benefit the entire community. The girls were named BMO Team of the Week, a national recognition that automatically puts the locals as one of 15 finalists for a grand prize that includes a $125,000 donation by the BMO Financial Group towards field improvements. The Storm are one of seven teams from across

the country to be awarded so far. Eight more will be identified via an online application process. The 15 winners will then vie for the title of 2012 BMO Team of the Week champion, to be selected by the Canadian public. Online voting will begin on August 13. “Rain or shine, we play, and it’s an honour to know that our dedication has been recognized,” said Storm head coach Robb Semler. “In addition, the opportunity to win a prize

for upgrades to our field is fantastic not only for this team, but also for the community. “Our girls work so hard to excel at a sport they love, and at the same time, share their love of soccer by making the effort to mentor younger players; I couldn’t ask for a better group of girls to coach.” The BMO Team of the Week program is a celebration at the grassroots level, engaging a nation and inspiring communities by recognizing youth soccer

teams who demonstrate team pride, team spirit, community commitment and passion for the game. “Team Storm has an unshakeable spirit that translates into an incredible team bond,” said Jennifer Muench, District VicePresident, Vancouver. “I’m honoured to recognize the Ladner Storm, an inspiration to other youth soccer clubs and the first winner from British Columbia for the 2012 BMO Team of the Week program. Congratulations to these girls and the community which supports them.” The Storm’s impressive nomination was put

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.
