KIDS’ ART

Online

www.mrtimes.com

From all of us, to all of you, Merry Christmas! Partnering with Grade 3 students from Edith McDermott Elementary, The TIMES is using art to send best wishes this holiday season. Donna Heikkila, the principal at Edith McDermott, was so proud of her students this week.

For weeks they have been filling up their “Giving Tree” in the foyer of their school with pyjamas, toys, clothing, and hand-knitted scarves. These will go to families in need, to Cythera Transition House – a need identified by the women’s shelter as some women and children need to flee in the night, Heikkila explained – and the Caring Place. Students in the knitting club also used their

needles to make some warm woollies for the less fortunate. Getting into the spirit of Christmas, Mrs. Julia Ashlee’s Grade 3 students at Edith McDermott submitted their colourful interpretation of Christmas to The TIMES for publication. It was hard to choose the one for this page as they were all beautiful – find the rest at www. mrtimes.com.

Love, acceptance, faith – this is what the new pastors at the Salvation Army’s Caring Place Ministries hope to bring to their congregation. Josh and Jen Ivany arrived in Maple Ridge in July, and they have spent their first half year building relationships with the congregation at the Caring Place. Many people forget that the Caring Place is also a church, Josh pointed out. With Darrell Pilgrim continuing as the director of the centre, the Ivanys take over the pastoral duties at the Salvation Army church. The Caring Place Ministries is known in the community for their shelter program, emergency shelter in the winter, and free daily hot meals. And while the social service aspect of their job is important, first and foremost, the Ivanys have been appointed as pastors of a church, the couple emphasized. At Christmas, the Caring Place reaches out to their clientele to help make Christmas a happier time. “This is a time of year that’s hard for people,” Josh said, adding that Christmas is always needs are. associated with family and for The Caring Place serves a those who have nothing, it can population that is largely marginleave them feeling alone and vul- alized, many of whom are lownerable. income and homeless citizens of This year the Caring Place held Maple Ridge. their annual Christmas dinner Often churches have been in earlier in December and a chilplaces where the poor weren’t dren’s Christmas party this past welcome, Josh said, and yet weekend, and the message the “these people need a place.” Ivanys want to get out to their The congregation is diverse at congregation is “we are their the Salvation Army facility, Josh family – they are added, with about loved and accepthalf staying at “This is a time of ed,” Josh said. the shelter, some year that’s hard for Based on homeless, and the Methodist others just lowpeople.” philosophy of income people.

Liam, two, and Aiden, three, shower love on their five-month-old sister Sadie. The Ivanys, including parents Josh and Jen are the new pastors at the Salvation Army’s Caring Place Ministries.

their own children are active participants. “Our kids are always in the front dancing and having fun,” Josh said of their Sunday morning services. They want to spread the word that the Caring Place is a safe place to come to and is family oriented. The services at the Caring Place are very interactive, Josh said, and congregation members have the opportunity to share. To prepare for a career ministering in the Salvation Army, the couple cut their teeth in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, taking part in the “War College,” a two-year training for hands-on street ministry – an urban mission. “For both of us, it was a lifechanging experience,” Josh said. They lived at the Empress Hotel among those people whom

they were reaching out to. It was a huge cultural shock for both of them as they lived day to day with people who were so unloved and marginalized. But the amazing generosity and sense of community among the population surprised the couple, and they learned a lot about humanity during the experience. “The people taught me so much,” Josh said. But many people who live on the streets have developed survival instincts, and know if someone is a good person or if they’re just going to rip them off, said Jen. Many of them have trust issues because of the lack of consistency in their lives, Josh said, adding that “we realize it takes time to gain that trust.” In order to do so, the couple said they are trying to be as transparent as possible and to love the people who frequent the Caring Place as best as they can. Josh is a fifth generation Salvation Army officer, and, for her part, Jen is continuing the tradition of her parents. The Ivanys brought along their two young boys to Maple Ridge, Aiden, three, and Liam, two, and two weeks after arriving, their daughter Sadie was born. They have been settling in during their first half year in Maple Ridge, and Jen said they like the town they have been assigned to. “We really like that it’s a city, but it’s the perfect size city where you can see the same person twice [in a day],” Jen said.

Our View

The power of Christmas

Today we are on the eve of perhaps the most widely celebrated religious holiday of the year. Christmas is a truly remarkable day. It’s a day set aside to honour the birth of a man whose thoughts and ideas are studied and followed – 2,000 years later – by more than two billion people around the world… a man who almost certainly wasn’t born on the actual day upon which his birth is celebrated each year… a man, in fact, whom some people (including many of whom celebrate Christmas) believe may never have existed! Such is the power of Christmas. No longer just a Christian feast day, Christmas and its underlying themes of “peace” and “goodwill” have transcended virtually all religious boundaries – including the boundaries between those who profess wide varieties of religious beliefs, and those with no religion at all. It’s a day of rejoicing. It’s a day that brings together families, friends, strangers… and even enemies. The power of Christmas has stopped wars – even world wars – in their tracks… if only for a few hours at a time. It also is a day with the power of sadness, especially for those who feel alone when there is so much happiness and joy evident everywhere around them. Those people need to know that they are not alone. Not at Christmas. And not at any time of year. Christmas has the power to heal hearts that have been trodden upon all the rest of the year. It has the power to make us all wistful for a day when this time of year is not the only time when people think about each other as much as – or even more than – they think about themselves. There is a spirit in all of us that is magnified by Christmas. As you celebrate this remarkable day tomorrow, keep a thought for all the other days of the year that could be as powerful. – B.G.

Holiday baking tips

Cold ingredients key in dough

N

othing compares to the aroma of baked Christmas goodies when you’re coming in from the cold winter weather. Our olfactory senses – sense of smell – contribute up to 80 per cent to our sense of taste, and thus is a very important part of our ability to recognize and enjoy flavour. The art of holiday baking is a regular activity in many households this time of the year, and some baking tips may be helpful. Flaky pie dough is a pastry that has a mixture of shortening and/or butter that is “cut in” so that there are small chunks still left in the finished product. Those little chunks aid in creating steam pockets within the crust, which help with the leavening process, and thus creating the flaky texture. It is best to keep pie pastry as cold as possible while mixing and rolling, to prevent melting the butter and shortening pieces prematurely. The best way to do it is to first focus on your ingredients. Make sure you are using ice water, instead of cold water, and frozen butter grated into the flour mix-

ture is ideal. The frozen butter particles then are already the required size from the grater, and will not suffer from the warm friction of too much mixing or cutting-in. Secondly, try not to touch the dough with your hands too much, as the warmth from them will melt the butter. It is best to form the dough by folding it over consistently with a chilled metal dough cutter. Once the dough is formed into a flat disk, wrap and place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. Remove, and proceed with rolling, ideally on a chilled marble surface. Cookies and quick breads are also very popular, and

they both rely on baking soda and/or baking powder to rise. Baking soda and baking powder are considered chemical leaveners. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, and it requires liquid and an acid to make a gaseous reaction. It is usually added to recipes that have a naturally occurring acid in the ingredients, such as buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, honey, molasses, and/or fruits. Baking powder, on the other hand, is a complete leavener, as it only requires liquid for it to react in the same manner. The baking powder reacts on its own because it contains a mixture of baking soda and a balanced amount of acid, along with starch to help prevent it from lumping. That is why you will see some recipes that call for baking powder and others with baking powder and/or baking soda. A good comparison of this would be a pancake recipe, compared to a buttermilk pancake recipe. Whatever desserts you choose to celebrate with, I wish you all the best of health and happiness this holiday season. • More at www.mrtimes.com

Jolly Ol’ St. Nicholas has spent about a month visiting with children at Haney Place Mall. Now, on Christmas Eve, he’s preparing to head back home just in time to make his annual round-the-world trip with his sleigh and reindeer. Fortunately, said photographer Linda Jones, Santa is now armed with all the information about local children, if they’ve been naughty or nice this year, and what it is they’re hoping he’ll deliver.

Early childhood education

Sharing is a learned behaviour Starting Early by Kathy Booth

E

very coin has two sides – ying and yang – dark and light – give and take. This time of year especially seems prone to struggles between the two sides. On one hand, people are filled with generosity and moved to share. Workers at local businesses and community organizations adopt families for the holiday season. Leaders at churches, synagogues, and mosques encourage their flocks to give generously and provide hope. Dancers and bar staff donate their time and tips to help those less fortunate. Basically everyone behaves like Scrooge after the conversion. The flip side to this thoughtfulness is the gimme gimme fostered by a constant barrage of commercials and bouncy jingles. Kids are bamboozled into thinking they need the latest whatsit. And adults run amok, convinced they must satisfy their child’s every whim. So, big people, I know I harp on this a lot, but it bears repeating: we are being watched! What we do and how we do it is a blueprint for children. Running amok isn’t the best way to teach children about sharing. And while the extra generosity may be laudable during December, it’s important to recognize that learning to share is a long-term goal when it comes to young children. Young children are quite innocently self-centred. Their natural inclination is to think the world is all about them. One word they learn to voice early is ‘mine!’ Learning to share is part of learning to get along with others, and since human beings are social creatures, getting along is important. Trying to force a toddler to share is like trying to herd cats.

It’s just not going to happen. But there are steps we can take to help children learn to share. We can use modeling, encouragement, and repetition – lots of repetition. It’s okay to talk about sharing with toddlers as soon as they are old enough to listen but, generally, children begin to grasp the concept of sharing at about three years. Snack and play time offer great opportunities for teaching sharing. Describe sharing as you interact with your child. “Let’s share this apple. Here’s a piece for you and here’s a piece for me.” “Let’s build a tower. Here’s a block for you, and now it’s my turn to add a block. We’re sharing the blocks.” Demonstrate sharing with other adults and be obvious. “Would you like some of my tea?” “Yes, I would. Thanks so much for sharing with me.” You might not win a Golden Globe for best actor in front of a young audience, but you will make an impression. Three year olds are famous for observing and imitating. Acknowledge positive behaviour when children share. “I like the way you gave your sister a turn with the teddy.” Young children are eager to please and a little encouragement goes a long way. Give children a chance to solve a problem on their own. If they continue to have difficulty sharing, try using a timer. Explain that when the timer rings, it will be someone else’s turn to play with the toy. Remember that young children may be especially attached to some of their toys. Encourage sharing but respect the boundaries. If other children will be visiting, let your child put away her special toy but also let her know you expect she will share the other toys. Most importantly, stay active in your child’s life and she may be more willing to share. Her security will come less from her possessions and more from being connected to you. Check out the Ridge Meadows Early Childhood Development Committee website (www.ridgemeadowsecd.ca) for information about programs for families with young children in our communities.

Earth Day

Call goes out for local artists

What’s the word “earth” without “art?” It’s just “eh.” Recognizing that art is an integral part of Earth Day, organizers of this year’s festivities in Maple Ridge are putting out a call for local artists. In preparation for the April 20 event, which will once again take place in the Memorial Peace Park and at The ACT, organizers are looking to pull together artist, artisans, and environmental groups known for taking action. Ahead of this year’s festivities, the organizers are holding an information meeting next month. All artists & arts groups are welcome to attend a Jan. 10 event, which will include appetizers courtesy of Big Feast Bistro. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Landrie Davies at landried@mract.org by Jan. 3.

Karina LeBlanc is training with other members of Canada’s women’s soccer team.

Maple Ridge Burrard Kevin Reid tangled with Langley Thunder’s Alex Turner during WLA action July 25 at the Langley Events Centre. The WLA is exploring ways to deal with the Canadian Lacrosse Association’s ruling to dole out harsher penalties to players who fight.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

The Western Lacrosse Association is planning its next course of action, as it contemplates a recent ruling by the Canadian Lacrosse Association to crack down on fighting. The WLA’s board of governors had a conference call on Dec. 13 to speak about the CLA’s changes in its rulebook that will see combatants given not only a major penalty but also a game misconduct if they engage in fisticuffs. How the ruling will affect the WLA and its teams – including the Maple Ridge Burrards – is yet to be determined. “There is no decision as of yet,” Burrards’ president Lance Andre said. “We are going to be conferencing quite a bit about it. We’re standing pat. We haven’t made any decision yet.” “The way it went is this,”

Coach picks players The selection process for a new women’s league is underway. Coach John Herdman will choose 16 Canadians to play in the new National Women’s Soccer League, an eight-team loop that kicks off in the spring in the U.S. Maple Ridge’s Karina LeBlanc would like to be one of the chosen. It has not been easy for women to eke out a living playing soccer, so one could forgive veterans such as LeBlanc, a goalkeeper, for feeling somewhat entitled to reap the benefits of any domestic pro league. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

explained WLA commissioner Casey Cook. “The board of directors has tasked the [WLA’s] commissioner and assistant commissioner to contact other affected parties in lacrosse such as Major Series Lacrosse, the junior leagues, the referees’ association and our insurers, and the wording of the

motion was, ‘To determine how Rule 45 can be more effectively implemented.’” Cook added, “What we are doing is, we are gathering information to see what our options are.” A task force was established in the spring 2012 to examine fighting in lacrosse. The task force

reported back to the CLA’s board of directors with recommendations in the fall, at the annual general meeting. As a result of the recommendations, the CLA Board of Directors has approved changes to Rule 45 in the Box Lacrosse Rule and Situation Handbook.
