Hockey fever

Canucks mania grips community The community’s Canucks fans kick it into high gear.

A strange condition has taken hold in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – one that appears to be sweeping the province in a bizarre display of symptoms. It’s Canucks mania and it won’t be cured until the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Kaylyn Barr, from Maple Ridge, took her oldest son, Brayden to game one in round two against Nashville with a sign plus “Canucks Fever” appropriate clothing and tattoos. Another local family – the Cooks – have built their own Canucks shrine, adding a new feature with each playoff round. But what do the neighbours think? “They’re totally right into it,” said Doug Cook. “Everybody thought it was pretty great.” Then, there was Rick Greeley who donned a tutu, Canucks body paint, and little else after losing a bet to his friends and neighbours. His punishment? To entertain those at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and 224th Street on Monday, minutes before game three of the finals. Mandy Hooker, who recently married in Los Cabo Mexico, managed to include her beloved Canucks in the wedding with friends in jerseys and even a tiny

Canucks flag in her bouquet. Albion Elementary has a hairy Canucks bet going. Teacher Jim Graham has promised students he will shave off his beard in front of the whole school if the Canucks take the cup. More than $700 has been raised by the school so far for Canuck Place and given the way students are dressing in blue and green, this school has been hit hard by “the fever.”

But perhaps the most severe case of Canucks mania seen by The TIMES was at Harry Hooge Elementary Wednesday. Organized by the school’s PAC moms, teachers Kelly Pieterse and Michael Ross, and principal Kevin Bodman, the driveway and parking lot were transformed into “Canucks Chaos” for a Canucks game 4 party. Kicking off with a group chant of “Go Canucks Go,” the event

included facepainting, a 3-on-3 hockey tournament, concession, prizes, a shoot out, and raffles all leading up to the game on the big screen in the gym. “It’s just great fun,” said mom Lori Hamilton, who wore her favourite jersey for the event. She wasn’t alone. In a sea of

green and blue, it was hard to find anyone who wasn’t wearing Canucks colours and cheering for the Vancouver hockey team. One thing is evident: There’s no containing Canucks mania in this community.

Canucks fans

Junior team invited to play at Rogers Arena The 2001 Junior Flames hockey team skated on Vancouver Canucks’ ice Wednesday night. by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

Twenty boys, ages nine and 10, felt like celebrities this week after finding

out they were chosen to play during intermission of game four between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins on Wednesday night. The Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey organization was contacted by the Canucks. They were giving the 2011 Junior Flames AAA spring league a chance to play at Rogers Arena while fans were there watching the televised game on the big screen.

“They have sold out 14,000 seats,” said Gina Salar-Arefi, parent of player Daniel. “This is a very rare opportunity. All these little kids get to skate in front of 14,000 people… I think it’s extremely special,” she added, prior to the game. Playing against each other, members of the Junior Flames were set to play a mock game during both intermissions, and Salar-Arefi said they wanted to impress so they were down at Planet Ice

practising until about 10 p.m. Tuesday. “They are so excited,” she said. The team also has playoffs starting tonight, Thursday, but after skating on the home ice of Vancouver’s team, they will be ready for anything. “There are a lot of nervous but really excited little boys,” said Salar-Arefi. “They are very good hockey players,” she added. “This is a high competitive level of hockey.”

After a successful surgery, and lots of TLC at home, it was discovered Elmo, the Labrador-shepherd cross who was bitten by a dog back in March and had to have surgery to remove a leg, was suffering from an underlying condition. “He did well in the recovery and initially with the surgery,” said Dr. Michael Orser, at Alouette Animal Hospital. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “News”

Walking nine hours for water A few local high schools and elementary schools spent some serious time walking for a cause on Friday afternoon. by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

It’s something we take for granted. The ability to turn on the tap and drink the clean water not only keeps us healthy, but makes it easier to forget that millions of people around the world do not have access to the same commodity. Garibaldi’s Student Action Team, along with fellow students from the school, students from Harry Hooge Elementary, and others around the community, wanted to bring awareness to the plight of those people by taking part in The World Walks for Water. This is an annual event around the world, and the second time it has been held in Maple Ridge. “We don’t have everyone here yet,” organizer Samantha Stanley said Friday morning. “But there’s already so many more than last year.” The challenge is to spend hours walking around the track

A few participants in Friday’s water walk event put jugs of water on their heads. with full water jugs to try and experience what it is like to have to walk to a water source and back every day. The event at Garibaldi started at 8 a.m. and ended at 5 p.m. and teams had to keep the jugs continuously moving. “It’s to raise awareness,” said

Stanley, and explained that although this is normally a fundraising event as well, Garibaldi’s Student Action Team had just finished raising $10,000 for a school in Sierra Leone, so they limited their focus on the issue. It was a full school event however, as teachers let their students out of class to participate. The chef provided lunch, bands played, and interested students drifted over and jumped in. “Kids come out here and then they volunteer,” said Stanley. “They see us set up and want to know what it’s for.” Stanley is passionate about the issues of clean water, sanitation, and education, and will be going one step further this summer when she leaves on July 20 to help build a school in Kenya. The three-week project is through Free the Children. “Our school’s really been getting involved in it,” she said. “People have been helping out, it’s really cool.” She is over halfway to her fundraising goal of $6,200 to go on the trip but is still trying to raise more funds so she can help make a difference during her break.

The controversial issue of farm home plates will come up again agreed Pitt Meadows council on Tuesday night, but they stand behind their decision to vote down the measure two years back. For one local farmer however, he was conGwen O’Connell cerned about the Pitt Meadows councillor matter again when he saw comments by Mayor Don MacLean in a recent issue of the Western Producer newspaper. MacLean was speaking in the article as a representative of Metro Vancouver, which is asking the province to introduce bylaws to restrict the size and placement of homes on land in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). “The article speaks about 20,000-foot mansions,” said local farmer Don MacDonald. “There are none of those in Pitt Meadows.” Although MacDonald knows council is not in favour of farm home plates, which would impose restrictions on home size and placement, he appeared before council Tuesday to make sure they were aware of the article and his feelings about it. “I was taken aback when I heard about our mayor. That got me off my tractor.” “We will have a discussion about how large homes will be on properties,” agreed Councillor Gwen O’Connell. • More online: www.mrtimes.com

Man injured in assault A man was assaulted by a group outside the Haney Hotel on Sunday. by Amy Judd

ajudd@mrtimes.com

Ridge Meadows RCMP say it appears alcohol was a factor in an incident in Maple Ridge during the early morning hours of Sunday, June 5. Police received a call just before 2:30 a.m. to say there was a possible assault

taking place outside the Haney Hotel on Lougheed Highway near 222nd Street, and a man was down on the ground being kicked by a number of other men. Mounties will not release too many details as the incident is still in the early stages of an investigation, but said a man and a woman claimed there was an altercation between the woman and another man, and then the group turned on her male friend. Everyone involved has been identified but no charges were laid as of deadline.

A semi was towing a tank and the driver must have misjudged the distance between the top and the Telus wires because it hit some hanging over the CP Rail tracks on Tuesday, June 7, around 2:45 p.m. The truck had to stop on the CP Rail tracks, and all train traffic had to be stopped so that the cable could be freed from the tank.

A head shaving fundraiser at Osprey Village Saturday raised about $5,000. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@mrtimes.com

Energies in Osprey Village early Saturday night were electrifying. And it had little to do with the Canucks game being played out in downtown Vancouver, and much more to do with the fundraiser going on in the Pitt Meadows courtyard. A number of people in or connected with Osprey Village volunteered to shave their heads and raise money for Athletes In Kind (AIK) and the B.C. Childhood Cancer Parents Association. The fundraiser, part of Pitt Meadows Day, proved to be a “hair-razing” experience that generated an estimated $5,000, boasted an ecstatic Hody Lye. “The energy was great,” said the coordinator, who led by example and had her head shaved. Lye, who had been growing her hair for months in anticipation of the shaving, dyed it blonde a week ahead the event, then dyed it pink just before having it shaved to the skin. “I was surprised at how freeing it felt to have all my hair cut off,” Lye said, noting she’s anxious to host the event again next year, but isn’t too sure if she’ll be chopping off her locks again so soon. Never one to sport long hair, Lye laughed at the different reactions she received. She was amazed at how many guys offered to open doors for her when she dyed it blonde, how many women said ‘oh my god, I love it’ when she dyed it pink, and now how many people give

her reassuring smiles, refuse to make eye contact, or ask if she cut it off because of cancer now that she’s had a few days of living bald. Lye has no regrets, noting she sacrificed her hair for many reasons – the closest to her heart being her dad Fred, who died 25 years ago from a brain tumour. And she wasn’t alone in getting her hair cut last weekend. Lye was joined by her young friend sixyear-old Davis Balla, who jumped at the chance to help the cause months ahead and never waivered. He too found the headshaving liberating, his proud mother Shannon Balla (the TIMES advertising sales manager) calling it a little too freeing maybe given his naughty tendancies since the event. But lathered up with sunscreen each day, he’s excited to talk to anyone and everyone about his experience and tell him that he and his father D’Arcy, and grandfather Dave Mitchell are all bald. “I was surprised During the actual shaving event at how freeing Saturday night, it felt to have all another local resident my hair cut off.” stepped up unexpectedly to have her hair Hody Lye cut off. Hanna Vorlicek, who has shaved her head for charity in the past, offered at the last minute to lose her locks if she could raise $500 from the crowd. In less than an hour, she too was bald, and the coffers were $610 heavier. People can still donate by texting Hoy at 604-319-3909 or online at CanadaHelps. org, a secure website that accepts donations for non-profit events and organizations. All donations go directly to BCCCPA. To donate, follow the CanadaHelps.org button, to the BCCCPA donation page.

Our View

Effort needs added class At press time, the Vancouver Canucks were either on the verge of winning their first-ever Stanley Cup, or on the wrong end of a serious momentum swing. Either way, here’s hoping the Canucks and fellow finalist, the Boston Bruins, try to keep their emotions in check (as hard as that may be) and play with some form of etiquette – especially with record numbers of fans across North America watching them battle for “Lord Stanley’s Mug.” Here’s hoping fans won’t have to witness another chilling sight of a motionless player laying on the ice, his unblinking, open-eyed stare at the stadium lights a sure sign his brain had been whipped into scrambled eggs – the way Boston winger Nathan Horton looked after absorbing a hit that was way too late, way too high, from Canuck defenceman Aaron Rome (subsequently banned from competition for the rest of the series). Here’s hoping the term “finger food” will apply solely to game-time appetizers like chicken wings and jalapéno poppers, and not to opposing players’ digits. Here’s hoping the Boston players don’t stick their fingers into the mouths of their Vancouver adversaries in a classless effort to entice them to take a nibble. Here’s hoping the post-whistle calf jabs, face-washes, and chest-bumps that have plagued the series so far fall by the wayside. The same rules apply for the fans. Here’s hoping a potential Canucks’ series loss won’t result in a repeat of the riot of ’94, when a lunatic fringe swarmed Vancouver’s Robson Street and created general mayhem, embarrassing the city and the fans who truly support their home team and the sport. Here’s hoping an identical scenario doesn’t play out if the Canucks happen to hoist the Stanley Cup on Friday, or if necessary, this Monday, or if the series stretches out to seven games, next Wednesday. Here’s hoping the Canucks and Bruins get back to playing some good, old-fashioned hard-nosed hockey. And may the best team win. – T.L.

Sidewalks on Haney Bypass, from 227th Street and and beyond, are in rough shape.

Reaction

Safety an issue walking along the Haney Bypass Dear Editor,

Re: [Commuters fill Haney, June 2, TIMES] people are avoiding walking through the tunnel to the West Coast Express and running across the busy Haney Bypass instead. The problem with walking through the tunnel is that there are no real proper sidewalks along Haney Bypass providing access to the tunnel. I have been in contact with the District and also sent photos of the sidewalk between the tunnel and 228th Street (on Haney Bypass). Since construction began next to Don Cherry’s and rain started falling, it is almost impossible to walk on the sidewalk that’s there now. It is muddy, water clogged, cracked,

Voters’ guide loaded with… Has everyone received their voters guide regarding the HST referendum? Are they sending this out due to the fact that first of all there is a large majority of British Columbians that are strongly against it? Or could it be Ms. Clark and her Liberals are moving the date up so that everyone won’t be up in arms when the increase to the carbon tax is initiated? Apparently the vice-president and general manager of Endako Mines states that his company has saved $800,000 thanks to the HST. This is only due to the fact that business is no longer paying the hefty 12 per cent tax. Instead they are paying nine per cent, so yeah that’s a no-brainer. Isn’t that what Joe Blow used to pay with GST and PST? And as far as low-income folks and seniors, it’s good for them only in the sense that they too are paying higher taxes with the HST, so the stipend received in yet another question to be answered. Another no-brainer. It states that taxpayers would have to somehow absorb the cost of $35 million to hire 35 PST tax collectors in order to make the transition. How about a couple of you mucky-mucks taking a reduction in your pension after you leave office, and return to your cushy jobs as a lawyer or one of the other job titles where the first requirement is at one time lying to your parents saying that the dog ate your homework? This is just one of many political spins that the Liberal government is so well

and if you try to bypass the sidewalk, you end up almost on the road and getting hit by a car any ways. The sidewalk between 225 and 227 Streets in Haney is bearable only when it’s not raining, you also have to contend with sand and weeds. From 227th Street onwards on the Haney Bypass there is no sidewalk at all, but there are townhouses upon townhouses. Should the road infrastructure not be looked at together with development on the Bypass? When the sidewalks are fixed and the tunnel more safer, people will use it. I totally agree that it is a very dangerous road and hopefully something can be done soon.

HST an ill-conceived plot Dear Editor,

The HST was conceived in dark, secret rooms by dishonest politicians and greedy corporate masters. And it still reeks of lies, misinformation, and greedy vested interests. The citizens of B.C. are currently being subjected to a $5 million, 24/7 propaganda campaign, complete with the sky is falling threats, outright lies, and false costs. Most of us already know – if we are paying attention – that these are complete fabrications. If cutting taxes for the rich and big corporations worked, all Americans would be rich beyond their wildest dreams. Surely even the slowest person in the world has to see that this radical rightwing theory has just not worked. We are going in the wrong direction and it can only lead to total disaster for the people of Canada to continue down this tragic path. Every free-market economics theory I have ever seen tells us that the last thing you do in a recession is raise taxes on the consumers of that country.

To serve and fundraise Two members of the Ridge Meadows RCMP helped out at two Tim Hortons locations in Maple Ridge during the recent Camp Day. During the one-day event more than 3,700 Tim Hortons restaurants across North America donated all the money from coffee sales. Funds raised from the June 1 event were donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation – raising $9.9 million. This means more than 14,000 kids across the country will attend a Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation camp this year.

Long-term care home

Seniors offered fur therapy

Organizers of the annual Country Fest in Albion are taking a few barnyard animals in to Holyrood Manor on Sunday for a visit. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

Baby chicks, sheep, rabbits, a goat, a donkey, and even a calf are going to be stabled at Holyrood Manor this weekend. Organizers of the annual Maple RidgePitt Meadows Country Fest have offered to bring some barnyard animals in to visit the seniors at the 124-resident long-term care facility in Maple Ridge this Sunday. It renews for a lot of the seniors, who are no longer active in the community, a sense of being part of the community and it’s an “incredibly” fun time, said fair organizer Lorraine Bates. Being with the animals is therapeutic for all kinds of people, but for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s, animals add many positive benefits that help ease their symptoms, Bates elaborated. For instance, a patient with severe dementia who had difficulties with communicating greatly benefited from two border collies. By petting the animals, the patient’s eye contact with those around her improved. Seeing this reaction amazed the patient’s family and the researchers. “Interacting with animals brings the seniors into the present moment, by making them smile or laugh,” Bates added. “Patients respond to an animal’s comforting presence, and some will communicate more readily to animals than humans. For others, an animal can help break the ice and begin a topic for a conversation.”

Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Country Fest representative Brianna Arsenault, 10, will be on-hand at Holyrood Manor this Sunday with her baby chicks. In some cases, spending time with an animal can even help open windows of memory. “The feeling of the soft fur from petting an animal can be a powerful trigger that can remind seniors of their long-forgotten pets,” Bates said. “The calmness and gentleness of these farm animals will surely bring joy to the residents at Holyrood Manor.” The Country Fest visit is not open to the public, but locals can get their fix of barnyard animals during the two-day free Country Fest running July 23 and 24 at the Albion Fairgrounds.

Pitt Meadows resident Nikki McLaren barely has a spare moment outside of all her volunteer activities. by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

Nikki McLaren does so much volunteer work in Pitt Meadows that she was nominated by two different groups for the 2011 Lynn Papp Award – something that is very unusual. This community service award is to recognize hard-working youth in our community, and McLaren definitely fits the description. She was nominated by the Pitt Meadows Girl Guides and her teachers at Pitt Meadows Secondary School, but she is still surprised by the honour. “I was just really shocked that anybody paid attention to stuff I was doing,” she said about being told she won. “It was cool for others to recognize that I was doing things to help others though,” she added. McLaren certainly has an impressive list of activities. She has been a guider since she was five, and now helps out in Sparks and Brownies as a junior leader. She has also represented Pitt Meadows in three international guiding events in Washington DC, Mexico City, and China, and spent two weeks last year working in rural schools and orphanages in northern China with the Me to We foundation and Pitt Meadows Rangers. She said that experience changed her life and has spurred her on to do more work with the Free the Children Foundation, for which she also started a

club at her school. Aside from her guiding work, she volunteers at Shaughnessy Vet Hospital every week, with Burnaby Parks and Recreation as a summer camp counsellor, and at the Pitt Meadows Museum among other things. “If I’m bored I go up to the Pitt Meadows Museum and help out,” she laughed. “I just like being around people and helping people, and I feel like a loser if I’m not doing something,” she said. There’s no danger in that as McLaren said she is busy all the time. “Nikki is part of an older Pathfinders and Rangers group,” said Guide leader Janet Haworth-Lee, “and she has pride in all of the community service that we have.” “I see something in that youth when she’s working with little children,” Haworth-Lee added. She’s “proud to be a Girl Guide.” McLaren also recently received the Chief Commissioner Gold Award for her work and dedication to guides, which is the highest honour she can receive. “I do plan on staying in Girl Guides as a link member,” she said, so she is still involved while she looks for a job next year to make money to go to school. She then wants to take the vet tech course in Thompson River, and see where her accomplishments take her. “I think it’s in her personality to give,” said Haworth-Lee. “She’s not a materialistic girl at all.” McLaren knows she is a rarity among many teenagers, and said some are surprised she donates so much of her time. “They’re like ‘what are you doing?’,” she laughed. “But if [you ask] a guide leader, they’re like ‘yeah, guides are like that.’”

Dikes

Embrace what lies ahead, no hesitation

The dike is a metaphor. It stretches ahead the way life stretches ahead. But when you are on it, that’s where you are. You are on the dike to be on the dike, to receive its daily offerings: the eagle high in a dead tree, joined by another that drops from above by Alan Woodland and perches on a higher branch, complaining of some eagle matter in querulous tones; the two ospreys that wing and hover, preparing to fall on the flash of a fish they can see 500 feet below them in the slow flowing waters of the river. As you walk the dike, you walk your life. There is nowhere else you want to be. The sky reaches around you through its entire 360degrees. You can stop and turn in a circle, and although the colour and the cloud shapes may change as you make your way round, there are no joins, no patchwork, just the continuous curve above. The dike changes you. You arrive and have an immediate decision to make. Shall you go this way or that, east or west, toward the distant mountains or to where you know the sea is. The decision you make will be a serious one but the consequences of making it will not cause you to fight with your neighbours, or end your marriage, or bring your company into bankruptcy. It’s not that kind of serious. What will happen is that as you walk in the way you have chosen, you will know you might have chosen differently and your life might have played out differently. But you must not turn back, certainly not before you reach the first gate, where you will have another decision to make. Should you give in to your sense of going in the wrong direction, continue on to a further gate, or, if you have time, to the end of the dike access. When you eventually turn and walk back the other way – and if you are a true dike walker, you will not have looked over your shoulder – the world and your life will change again, sometimes dramatically. Now and then, we light-heartedly use the expression ‘it took my breath away’ but on the dike, to turn and drink in the vision of horses up to their bellies in buttercups before a backdrop of fields and rolling hills and multigreen trees climbing the mountain to the place where trees can’t go, where the naked granite and the snow begin, that is breathtaking. If you have walked or cycled the dikes for 50 years as I have, it is hard to imagine visitors arriving for the first time. It’s hard to imagine them approaching the ‘greenhouse’ gate, walking north with only the tips of the mountains visible, climbing the little rise from the road to the top of the dike and then… for the first time, the unforgettable landscape laid out before them. In this hurried world where change is constant, there are few places where you can find consistency and continuity, but on the dikes you can stop and look and see what you saw 10, 20, or 50 years before. The trees may be different trees or larger than they were. Some will have died and fallen and been replaced by others, but the reflection of the Golden Ears winks up at you through whichever trees there are now, just as it winked 50 years ago and all the years in between. And as you leave you wink back.

BCAA Member Member Day Day Members of Sparks (ages five and six) geared up for a turn on the rock wall. From left Mya Wock, Samantha Cassidy, and Braelyn Andrews.

Girl Guides

Fun day takes wild turn by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

Climbing an obstacle course through the trees, face painting, jumping on a bouncy maze, and making crafts, were just a few of the activities girls of all ages were able to enjoy on May 29. It was the annual Adventure Day Camp for the Alouette District Girl Guides, including Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders, and Rangers. About 150 girls took part, explained Vicki Magnison, Girl Guides PR Advisor for the Lougheed area, and every year the District tries to get all the girls together for an adventure day. “It’s to create friends and try out the different activities the girls may not get exposed to otherwise,” said Magnison.

When Maple Ridge resident George Klassen started travelling to Malawi a few years ago, he saw the middle-aged women carrying water for miles. He asked himself “what’s wrong with this picture?” And that’s when he decided he would help these women whose job it was to provide families with water – hence the birth of the Maple Ridgebased charity Project Wellness. Eighteen wells later, the villagers are “rejoice” The children of Kanzingeni village were grateful for the well that was built every time a well is drilled, by Project Wellness. he said, as for the first time for many of them, to Project Wellness. she had never been able to they have clean water This year, the wells were wash in the evening until close by. drilled in four villages now.

Azzaria Bramer will be heading back to Douglas College in September. They describe Bramer as a thoughtful and creative student who fostered a positive learning environment both at the college and on practicum. “She applied herself to her studies diligently and earned excellent grades,” said Doug Estergaard, cocoordinator of the Youth Justice Program. “She also applied herself to creating strong relationships with her peers and her instructors, and earned their respect and trust.” Bramer wasn’t even sure she wanted to follow this career path when she started at Douglas College two years ago. “To be honest, it found me,” she

said of the program, as she had originally applied to a different one. “Now I like it 10 times more,” she added of the youth justice path. “I knew I wanted to work with people and help people,” she said. Bramer now has some salient advice for new students entering her field of study. “Be open to learning and growing,” she said. “If you do this, you will learn so much and become a better person and worker in the field. You have to have faith in yourself,” she added. “This will enable you to get through anything that comes your way.”

Standing up in front of her professors and peers at Douglas College, saying her valedictorian speech, 20year-old Azzaria Bramer teared up and fought to control her emotions. “Just having the chance to tell my teachers how I felt about them, and my classmates,” she said made her want to cry. The Maple Ridge resident now has a diploma in youth justice, and has already been working for about a month at Directions Youth Services Centre in Vancouver. “I work after-hours crisis,” she said, “so I work there from 12 p.m. to 8 a.m.” The centre is designed for youth who are at risk, or streetentrenched, and gives them a place to find help and tools to get their lives back on track. “I like helping youth, seeing their progress,” said Bramer, as at night she sees many kids that she has seen multiple times before. Unfortunately it is not a full-time job, and Bramer hopes to get one for the summer before returning to school in September to work towards a child and youth degree. Her instructors are not surprised Bramer has gotten this far already.

Natural disasters. Peace-of-mind protection. With natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis devastating cities around the globe, it’s becoming more and more important that we understand the risks and take precautions. In B.C., its almost forest fire season - and we have seen firsthand the devastation these can cause to our belongings and homes. While it’s impossible to prevent a natural disaster, the guarantee of peace-of-mind protection should be expected from an insurance company. How will your insurance company respond if disaster strikes? There are some fundamental things your insurance company HOME should do:

Help to get you back on track. Depending on the extent of damage, you may need a team of tradespeople to help you restore your home. Though your insurance company may approve a certain amount of funds for restoration, you should still have the option to quote with a contractor of your choice. Or, if you prefer, your insurance company should provide the names of skilled professionals. The benefit of working with a local insurance company is that they will be able to give you qualified recommendations in your area.

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

INSURANCE

WITH Assist with the emergency. ZLATA STUMP In the event of a natural disaster, you should be able to contact your insurance company any time day or night. Once coverage is confirmed, they should assist by calling in professionals to help and arrange for items like humidifiers, or tarp for your roof, to help reduce further damage. Explain coverage details. Once an adjuster has spoken to you, or viewed your loss, your insurance company should explain to you what is and isn’t covered under the policy. They should also discuss repair or replacement of your contents to help you decide how to move forward with your claim. If a natural disaster renders your home uninhabitable and coverage allows, your insurance company should also provide options for alternate accommodations until it can be restored.

Call 310-2345 or click on bcaa.com

Keep you informed. You shouldn’t be kept guessing. From beginning to end, your insurance company should keep you updated on progress and possible delays so that you have the confidence of knowing when your home will return to normal.

There’s no way to predict when a natural disaster will occur, but if you understand the risks and take precautions, you can benefit from the peace-of-mind protection of your insurance company to alleviate the stress of a claim. Contact BCAA to learn more about BCAA Home Insurance and the kind of coverage and service you can expect should loss or damage occur to your home.

CONCUSSION AND POSTCONCUSSION SYNDROME

It was big news when NHL superstar Sidney Crosby – whose over-time goal scored hockey gold for Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics – recently suffered a concussion in a hockey game. Though prominent, he is just one of several high-profile sports figures to suffer serious consequences following a head injury – “mild traumatic brain injury” (MTBI) – that is often poorly understood. But one benefit from Crosby’s misfortune is that it has led to media and Internet discussion of the potential consequences of a concussion (sometimes called “post-concussion syndrome”), which has helped clear up some misconceptions. For instance, there need not be a physical injury or blow to the head – a concussion can be brought about by severe or abrupt jarring or shaking of the head, e.g., the head snapping or whipping back or sideways. Also, the victim need not black out or lose consciousness, and may initially feel and seem okay, even to firstresponders at the scene or in the emergency room. But the consequences of a concussion can be severe and sometimes long-lasting or even permanent. And the effects of several concussions are cumulative, so it’s critical to allow enough time for full recovery. One little known fact is that most cases of concussion or MTBI occur not in the sports arena but in motor vehicle accidents. The Courts in B.C. accept the best current medical views of concussion and postconcussion syndrome, if proved by credible evidence. But they are on guard against exaggerated or fake claims. And the defendant in a lawsuit (ICBC in car collision cases) will often try to show exaggeration or fakery. Take the 2010 B.C. Supreme Court case involving Mr. M, a 37-year old operations and fleet-manager of a trucking business. He was a passenger in a vehicle struck on the side where he sat. The other driver was fully at fault. The damage to both cars was relatively minor, but the impact caused Mr M. to be pushed into the corner (he was wearing his seatbelt) and his head

and neck to be pinched and angled in an awkward position. He felt sick and dizzy, the pain in his head was excruciating and his back and neck hurt, and he was taken to hospital. Before the accident, Mr. M had been energetic, great at multi-tasking and routinely put in long hours at work. He had an easy-going manner, was socially engaged and enjoyed an active outdoor-oriented lifestyle. All this changed dramatically in the years after the car accident. He suffered severe headaches, different from the sinus-type headaches he experienced before. He had problems with his vision, concentration, shortterm memory and balance. He could mostly only work for a few hours at a time, and often he would have to stop work and go to a quiet, dark room to rest. As to his personality, he became abrupt, short-tempered and aggressive. In short, the accident caused him serious and permanent injuries, in the form of MTBI, affecting his ability to work and most other aspects of his life. TheCourtdismissedasunhelpfulvideo-tapeevidence introduced by ICBC to suggest that Mr. M exaggerated his problems. It accepted medical evidence that he suffered from the consequences of the concussion endured in the car accident. This was not disproved simply because hospital emergency room staff noted no confusion or loss of consciousness. He was awarded $110,000 for pain and suffering and $650,000 for loss of future earning capacity.

Culture

by Amy Judd

ajudd@mrtimes.com

About $25,000 will be designated to a public art program, after Pitt Meadows council approved the bylaw Tuesday night. Christopher Friesen, a professor from the faculty of visual arts at UFV, gave a presentation to council in committee two weeks ago and spoke about the benefit of public art in a community. “It’s a work of art that is created by an artist specifically to be sighted in a public place,” said Friesen. “It’s a work of art for a public space.” He used examples of public art such as the decorative manhole covers in Seattle, and Cloud Gate by artist Anish Kapoor in Amy Judd/TIMES Chicago. The statue of the eagle in Sprit “It has the power to energize our public Square is an example of public art. spaces,” said Friesen. “It’s not just the artist, it’s the team behind the artist.” Now that the bylaw for the Public Art program and committee has been approved, a steering committee will be formed and citizens will be invited to apply for the opportunity to serve as volunteers on the committee. Friesen said a piece of public art does not just have to be a free-standing sculpture, it could be incorporated into the railing of a bridge, or the modification of a public building. “I absolutely think this is the best way a community can identify themselves,” said Councillor Gwen O’Connell. “I was thinking of the washrooms at Harris Road Park, we have to re-do those anyways.” “Public art can really make a location when it’s done properly,” said Friesen. “There’s a responsibility from the artist to understand issues in that community,” he added.

Questions & Answers

Fungal disease ugly but not harmful Dear Anne,

“This is the third year that we have had an azalea problem. It begins with swollen leaves on the new growth, progressing to white mold, and finally the leaves blacken and die. We have used a variety of fungicides and cut the azaleas back quite a bit. The problem is mostly limited to 40-year-old azaleas of the same variety, but the problem has now moved to some of the neighbouring azaleas. We are quite prepared to remove the diseased shrubs.”

Brian Cronkhite, via email

Y

our azalea problem sounds like leaf gall – a fungal disease that’s not uncommon in cold, wet weather. It’s actually harmless to the plant, though very ugly. It can be controlled organically by picking the affected leaves as soon as you see the infection. The picked leaves should be thrown in the garbage or burned, as composting them could spread the infection. The pruning would have helped more had the weather been drier. Fungicide tends to be an endless and time-consuming solution, since you will have to ensure very good coverage, under the leaves as well as over them. While the weather remains wet and cold, the spraying may need to be done every month or so.

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to amarrison@ shaw.ca

Garden Talk by Anne Marrison

Also, since our weather seems to be falling into a long-term pattern of very wet winters and springs, the problem may recur every year. Removing the azaleas would save a lot of work, and also remove a source of infection for the other azaleas. Dear Anne,

“What is the best time to prune my clematis Vyvyan Pennell? Should I prune it in spring or fall, cut it down drastically or only by a certain amount. Is it too late to prune it this spring?”

Valerie Ahwee, via email

V

yvyan Pennell flowers on last year’s wood in spring, and flowers again in late summer on new shoots. It is too late to prune, unless you don’t mind losing most or all of the blooms this year. By pruning now the new shoots may not mature quickly enough to produce

any flowers, although they’ll be well positioned to give you lots of bloom next spring. People often simplify pruning this type of clematis by cutting everything down to about 30 centimetres (12 inches) from the ground in late winter. The clematis will make masses of new shoots which will flower in late summer and early fall. But there is an alternative. In late winter next year, you could cut half the clematis shoots down to about 30 cm from the ground. Leave the remaining stems long enough to fit the support structure you have set aside for them, and cut each of the ends back to a healthy bud. The shoots that are cut down to 30 cm will make new growth that flowers later at the end of summer, and the older stems that are trimmed just enough to fit the trellis will flower in spring.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry.No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody #1 confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK. We supply EVIDENCE!

The rotary club is also involved in a duck race in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Haney, and are striving to raise $100,000 for local youth groups by selling 10,000 ducks that will participate in a race down the Alouette River on July 31.

Money for sports facilities and equipment is not often easy to come by, and the Ridge Meadows Minor Softball Association (RMMSA) is grateful a community group was able to help them out with some much needed funds. “I went to the Meadow Ridge Rotary Club,” said RMMSA vice-president Jeff Allen, “and I received a grant.” With that grant he was able to update the association’s batting cage so it can be used year-round and provide the team with a better level of training. There are currently 72 teams in the association, with 800 athletes ranging from T-ball to junior softball. “We also received a lot of donations over and above,” said Allen, and items such as the paint and metal cladding were donated. “It used to be just a chain-link building with a roof on top,” he added.

Roller finds kindred spirits on track

A Pitt Meadows resident is a member of the Smash Test Betties, part of the roller derby league in the Fraser Valley. by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

There have been some days when Martha Manning is so sore from practice that she can barely move the next day. Despite the fatigue, bumps, bruises, and scrapes, Manning is loving every moment of training to be a Reign Valley Vixen. “Even when I’m at a practice and I’m sitting against the wall with sweat dripping off me trying to catch my breath, I still love it,” she said smiling. Manning, a Pitt Meadows resident, is a member of the Smash Test Betties, a group that is considered the ‘fresh meat’ that will learn new skills and become proficient enough to take part in bouts and become a member of the Reign Valley Vixens. They are a roller derby league, based in Abbotsford, and established in 2009. Manning decided to join the organization six months ago after seeing something on TV about roller derby and googling the options available. “I just thought it looked really cool,” she said, even though she had not been into skating as a child. “I wanted to get more active and meet new people.” But she also got more than she bargained for. “The warmth there,” she said. “They accepted me for exactly who I was. They’re all a little off-beat like me,” she laughed.

Martha Manning decked out in her Smash Test Betties gear. “They’re really encouraging, really accepting. A really good support network,” Manning added, saying that even if there was a league closer to home she would still drive to Abbotsford as the people are so great. As a Smash Test Bettie, Manning goes to about

one practice a week, sometimes two, and is working on passing her skills tests. “First we do cardio,” for at least 45 minutes, and then the team learn how to stop properly, how to fall property, how to stop on the track around other players, and be able to do 25 laps of the flat track

in five minutes, Manning said. “Think of it as boot camp on wheels,” laughed Manning. Once they have mastered those then the Betties move on to more advanced skills, and passing those, they are then able to register to be a Vixen and pick

L6G- 86I 68:F G;:: F6H M6 &H3IK(3- 26 G;:: F6H3 968(F4

a cool derby name. “Once it’s registered, it’s yours,” said Manning. “Unfortunately the really great ones seem to be taken,” as only one roller girl on the International Roller Girls Master Roster can have the same name and none can be too similar. “It’s not the roller derby of the 70s,” Manning cautioned, when asked if some of her friends think she is crazy for being in this league. “When people think roller derby that’s what they’ve been exposed to,” she said. Not only are modern day roller girls not even allowed to swear, they also practice on a flat track, whereas traditional roller derby was played out on a banked track, which is raised on the sides. “It’s much easier to have a flat track,” said Manning. When she is not honing her skills on the track, Manning volunteers at the events and takes part in the many fundraisers held by the Vixens. “We also rely heavily on donations from the community for our fundraising,” she said. Practice is year-round, while the season runs April to August and new recruits are always welcome. Manning sees herself doing this for a long time. “It’s the women,” she said. “I love the exercise, I love the sport, but it’s the social network, the support, the acceptance.” “It’s like anything really,” she added. “If the people make you feel terrible, you’re not going to go back.” The next event is coming up on June 25 at the MSA Arena in Abbotsford.

Girls team earn distinction

The U10 girls Rockets soccer team is in the running to be BMO Team of the Week 2011 champions. by Amy Judd

ajudd@mrtimes.com

Coach Jamie Schwingenschloegl could not be prouder of his girls soccer team. The U10 girls Rockets from Pitt Meadows soccer club have just been named the eighth Bank of Montreal (BMO) Team of the Week winners, and now have a chance to be the national winner and win the grand prize including a $125,000 refurbishment of their field. “The amount of effort and commitment the girls have,” said Schwingenschloegl. “They are quite a success on the field as well as off.” The 11 member team has some members that have been playing together for about five years, and like to help out in the community as well as win their games. They participated in a food bank drive one evening instead of holding practice, and collected more than 700 items for the Friends In Need Food Bank. “They’re phenomenal kids,” said

The U10 girls Rockets need the public’s help to win the competition starting Aug. 1. their choosing, and Schwingenschloegl said if the Rockets win, they are going to donate to the Jumpstart program run by Canadian Tire. “They are excited to help other kids who perhaps aren’t as fortunate,” he said. The Rockets are the eighth of 15 youth soccer teams (ages seven to 12) across Canada that will be selected between April 1 and June 30 as weekly BMO Team of the Week winners. Starting August 1, the winners will then vie for the title of BMO Team of the Week 2011 Champion, to be selected by the public through online voting. To view the Rockets’ profile go to http://community.bmo.com/soccer/content/rockets-28 and voting starts at www. bmosoccer.com on Aug. 1.

Schwingenschloegl, who will be returning to coaching next season. “Every single week, whether it is raining, snowing or cold, each player is excited and eager to come to practice and play,” he added. “They are unhappy if I even think about cancelling a practice. They are not afraid to try new things and are always willing to learn from their mistakes.” “For the last three years, the Rockets have been successful both on and off the field,” said Henry Donkers, district vice-president, Vancouver suburban for BMO. “Not only do these girls know how to move the ball,” he said, “they are noted for their respect of other players and teams.” The final winner is designated $5,000 to donate to a charity of

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on paperwork, messaging, errands, travel, news and casual friends. It’s a busy but not important time. Sunday’s full of mysteries and subconscious urges (so is good for seeing within or seeking critical advice). But these – and sex, finances – can meet irritation Monday. Wisdom, a gentle outlook creep in late Monday to late Wednesday – you might spend too much on travel, culture, education or a legal matter, but these things also come to a satisfying climax. Be ambitious Thursday/Friday. You’re popular Saturday, but driving, high tech are erratic. Taurus April 20-May 20: Continue to chase money. Buy sources of knowledge and cooperate with teachers. Relationships flow well Sunday, but they might run into friction Monday a.m. Ignore a financial or sexual decision/idea Monday night – these meet success Tuesday/Wednesday (although you might overspend for an investment). Be careful with ethical or legal “assumptions” (or travel ideas) Thursday to suppertime – the practical reality is far different. These matters flow with superb luck, though, Thursday night to pre-dawn Saturday. Be ambitious – but drive carefully, and forgive computers – Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue high. You’ll be given almost anything you ask for – but you need to be aware that asking for a partner, marriage, relocation, litigation or a contract could lead to restriction or unexpected solitude. But these are not necessarily bad. Relative solitude will come anyway, over the year ahead, as a blessing, a healing. Do ask for advice. Take this general attitude for the whole 12 months ahead: that you will, to whatever degree you can, sacrifice your own time/energy to support another (or others). This will bring good results.

Next face superb luck in investments, lifestyle changes, sex/ week, you’re going to burst forth with a blaze of energy, intimacy, therapy/healing, and/or research. Use Sunday to so store it up now. Sunday’s romantic, but anyone who’s see what you already have, and what you accept as true attractive Monday morning is also a quarrelsome type – – these are not where your luck lies; these will remain fair warning! Tackle chores and health concerns Monday static. Monday morning, a partner’s or competitor’s to Wednesday.

June 12 - 18, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You face nine more days of drudgery work, so just keep on plugging. (As hinted earlier, perform only necessary work all year; don’t make machinery, chores, health or employment a primary focus.) Soon, fresh air, new opportunities & exciting relationships will enter. The last of these is especially significant, as the 12 months ahead bring splendid romantic openings! The same period creative and speculative luck. Optimistic risk is your friend, especially risk that, if it “wins,” will bring you more responsibility. Joy Sunday. Rest midweek, charge forth Thursday/Friday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: This is your last week of romance, creativity, pleasure and beauty for awhile – enjoy it while you can. Be ambitious Sunday. Higherups are still impatient, temperamental, so be diplomatic, especially Monday morning. Your popularity surges Tuesday/Wednesday! Flirtations, entertainment, optimism abound. A romance could swell to “mad love.” But retreat Thursday/Friday: meditate, contemplate, plan, deal with government agencies, and fulfill obligations. (All these will go better Thursday night and Friday, not before.) Your energy, charisma spring up Saturday – careful driving. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent continues on your domestic scene, on security, property, children, retirement, gardening, nature and nutrition. Luxuriate in laziness. Sunday/Monday are wise, gentle – contemplate the why’s, not the how’s. You might feel a tug-o-war between your ambitions and your home (or your tiredness) Tuesday/Wednesday. All’s well, whichever extreme you favour. Your hopes meet barriers Thursday daytime, but this night ad Friday could bring fulfillment, especially to home-related wishes. It’s a splendid time to decorate, landscape. Weariness returns Saturday – rest, plan. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
