A&W’s weekly car show

Collectors share labours of love

Cruisin’ the Dub brings together owners and enthusiasts of classic cars and hot rods.

A&W Cruisin’ for a Cause

A

rt Schilder parked his “pride and joy” alongside other prized possessions near the Maple Ridge A&W late one Thursday afternoon. The proud owner of a 1935 Dodge Brothers truck, Schilder had plenty of company at Cruisin’ the Dub, a weekly show and shine that takes place Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. throughout the summer at the A&W, located at 228th Street and Lougheed Highway. The weekly Cruisin’ started in June and wraps up Sept. 8. With upcoming dates on Aug. 25 and Sept. 1 and 8, the event attracts cars and trucks to the local A&W’s parking lot and to the lot a few feet north of the restaurant. For Schilder, a Maple Ridge resident, his vintage vehicle isn’t just his truck – it’s the end result of his labour of love. Just one example of the passion Schilder has for his truck: it took him the better part of six years to tap, by hand, the dents out of its fenders. Schilder estimates that it took him about a decade to restore the truck. “It’s not perfect in some people’s eyes. but I got it as scrap,” he said. “It was headed for the heap and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll take it’.” By a quarter to six on this particular Thursday, almost every spot was filled by vintage cars, trucks, and hot rods of a variety of makes, years, and models. Johnathan Sagris, who helped the drivers find spots to park their vehicles, said the “car hop” is about reliving a bygone era, even though Sagris is, himself, a whipper snapper by car-buff standards. “It’s not perfect in some “It gives the public a chance to see the people’s eyes, but I got older cars,” Sagris it as scrap. It was headed said. “Grandparents can bring their grandfor the heap, and I said, children out to these ‘Yeah, I’ll take it’.” events so they can get Art Schilder a feel what life was like back then.”

Thursday, Aug. 25, noon to 10 p.m. 22805 Lougheed Hwy. Maple Ridge

An all-day car show, complete with vehicles of all eras, live music, and more. This event raises money for the MS Society of Canada, with $1 from the sale of every Teen Burger going to the cause and donations accepted on site. People can also text MS to 45678 to donate $5 towards ending Multiple Sclerosis.

Mom worried by care transition

Children with disabilities face challenges when they turn 19 and move into a new type of care.

The SPCA is hosting an open house at their new Albion facilities Saturday, 12 to 4 p.m.

Heather Mason’s daughter turned 19 last week. For most kids that’s a rite of passage – becoming an adult with all the freedom it brings with it. But for Mason’s daughter, Christina Bartel, turning 19 means moving from a group home where she’s had 10 years of stability under the Ministry of Child and Family Development to a facility run by Community Living BC (CLBC) that takes care of adults with disabilities. That move has Mason worried her daughter won’t get the care she needs. Mason is fearful that the new facility won’t provide adequate care for her daughter, who is both blind and deaf and has severe developmental delays. The staff at the facility she’s at now, run by Arcus Community Resources, know Christina and her medical needs, Mason said. But, Mom added, because of her severe disabilities her daughter’s medical needs probably won’t change even as she gets older. “Why should she have to move because she’s changing age?” Mason said. Christina is only four feet tall and weighs 55 pounds, and cognitively is the equivalent of a two-year-old. Her mother was told two years ago to start preparing to move her daughter into an adult facility. She met with a CLBC facilitator and thought a plan was in place to get her daughter into a home run by the same company, Arcus, which is familiar with Christina’s needs. But in June, Mason was informed that the plans had changed. Under the impression that families have choice when it comes to the care of their children, the mandated change of plans was abrupt and frightening for Mason. Christina needs constant care and the staff at her current home know her and her medical needs, Mom said. Mason pointed out that even though her daughter is officially becoming an adult, her medical and physical needs are not changing at all. For Mason, it’s about money. Under the care of CLBC, there will only be nursing care four days a week during the daytime. Mason said she’s worried her daughter will get sick at 10 p.m. when there are no nurses on site and they won’t know how to deal with her fragile health. “You’re taking money over a person’s life,” Mason said. The family was first told that Christina would have to move on her 19th birthday,

but last week that was postponed for about four to six weeks, her mother said. The Ministry of Children and Family Development supports children and youth with special needs up to 19 years of age. When they turn 19, they move under the care of CLBC. Community Living provides services and support to adults 19 and older with developmental disabilities and their families. According to a CLBC spokesperson, they start to help with the transition from ministry care to their care a few years before they turn 19 and even as early as 15. Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather said he’s heard of similar cases over the years where the transition to adult care has been difficult. “The bottom line is it’s been extremely stressful for [the families],” Sather said.

He doesn’t think there’s enough money in the budget to give adults with disabilities the amount of care they need. “Even if it’s costly, we can’t neglect them,” Sather said. According to a CLBC spokesperson, in some cases, where “highly specialized” resources are needed, options might be limited. Funding and the support someone receives from CLBC depends on their disabilityrelated needs, their support preferences, and such things as urgent health and safety needs, according to CLBC. Because of her daughter’s fragile health, Mason’s biggest fear is she will die in a facility that isn’t familiar with her specific needs. “People who don’t know her can’t tell when she gets sick,” Mason said, pleading for help.

Out of more than 400 entries, 11-year-old Erika Bernard of Maple Ridge was one of 10 shortlisted to competed at the PNE Star Showdown semifinals last Sunday. She didn’t make the final cut.

PNE

Contest over for dancer Maple Ridge dancer Erika Bernard didn’t win the PNE Star Showdown, but she had a great time anyway. “She did a very good job. The competition was dominated by vocalists and was won by a hip-hop dance group,” said Erika’s mom Jennifer Hill-Bernard. “She was thrilled to be there and all the kids were very supportive of one another. It was really quite cool,” Mom added. Erika, 11, competed in the kids division semi-finals on Sunday. “Erika is already planning her entry for

next year,” said Hill-Bernard. All three winners in her category hail from Surrey. First place hip hopsters, CNC Dance, (Katie Adina, Angelica Emnacen-Boyd, Gabriel Galedo, Dominique Mailoux, Vanessa Pankhurst, and Joshua Zaporteza,) recently travelled to Los Vegas to compete at the USA and World Hip-Hop Dance Championships. Second place went to Benjamin Dunnill and third place to Nhemy-JJR Cepeda. Other semi-finalists in Erika’s division who didn’t place in the top three were Beamer Wigley, Jillian Haima, Larasati Maranda, Mariah Gauthier, Teresa Dickinson, and VIA, (Harrison Ivaz, Ben Renert, and Arthur Phillips.) The annual fair, an end-of-summer tradition for 100 years, features more than 700 shows, exhibits, and attractions. The PNE runs daily through Sept. 5.

Our View

Understanding missed at UN We live in a country that celebrates its differences. We (most of us, anyway) are proud that Canada is home to people of virtually every ethnic, racial, religious… or whatever… that the world’s humanity has to offer. We revel in the differences, and the advantages that those differences bring to the life-long cultural experience that is Canada. We can find within our borders – often within a short drive of our homes – cuisine from around the globe. We enjoy celebrations that share the joy of the cultural differences that make Canada unique in the world. We can experience first-hand the attributes that make ethnic, racial, and religious groups other than our own special – we can learn from them, and often, we adopt some of them as our own. Canada is a model for that concept. It’s remarkably ironic, then that Canada is being taken to task by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Adding to the irony is that it’s one of the very tools we use to fight discrimination that has us in hot water. The phrase “visible minorities,” one often used in this country – to help promote and/or protect the rights of minority groups that can be visibly identified within the general population –is apparently politically incorrect. Indeed, our multicultural society has pitfalls, and demands of us individual and collective responsibilities. One of Rotary International’s mottos is “Peace Through Understanding” – the idea that, the citizens themselves strive for understanding, countries are less likely to take up arms when there are misunderstandings. Basically, understanding promotes friendship, and we don’t usually shoot at our friends. We must try hard to understand our friends at the United Nations. – B.G.

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to respond to Joe Sawchuck’s letter about teachers [Teachers earn more than most already, Aug. 18, TIMES]. It is not the first time that I read, or have to listen to people tell me that teachers work less and earn more. I have been a teacher for more than 25 years, and boy would I like to earn the somewhere in between $63,869 to $71,831. People, like Joe, often like to tell me how many days I supposedly work, and how many days I supposedly have off. To this, I ask: When you don’t have a dentist

appointment, is your dentist “off” or is s/he still working? When your car isn’t at the mechanics, is s/he not working? Then what makes you think that teachers only work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Mondays to Fridays, with the summers off? When your child was born, was the doctor/midwife delivering one baby at time, or 30, each with their own complications? When you are at the drive-thru at your local hamburger joint, how many customers is the cashier listening to? One? Two?

Court system

Justice too slow Dear Editor,

Our criminal justice system is sick and sickening. And pretty much disgustingly ineffectual, too. The legislation is such that the district attorneys [public prosecutors in B.C.] have far too many hoops they have to jump through which allows criminals to escape being held accountable. No effort is spared to make sure there is little accountability. There are too many deplorable rulings, which do not make much sense. Two of which I can remember in recent years. One was the ruling where those two young men clubbed two South Asians to death in Bear Creek Park. That kind of ‘sentence’ says loud and clear that the South Asians just do not count. Sickening, I call it. Then there is the idiotic ruling for the animal who chopped another young man’s spinal cord turning him into an instant quadriplegic. This creep should be doing about 15 years minimum. Because it takes so very long to reach the courts, often the charges are tossed or stayed. When tossed out because it becomes a case of justice delayed is justice denied. This does not happen occasionally; it is quite common and is not even much noticed any more because of this. One of the things making this stupidity happen so frequently is because there are not enough judges to move things along, so the court system is badly clogged up. Then, too, possible witnesses are often loath to put the lives of their families or themselves on the line. No surprise there! As well, by the time it does go to court, if it does in fact get there, possible witnesses may have died or moved away. Worse still, so many trials that used to take perhaps a very few weeks can now be dragged on for months, even a year is not unknown. As is usual, the taxpayer is often stuck with the legal bills for an accused because he hasn’t a pot or a window to toss it out of. I believe that our police are pretty much competent hard-working sorts. When they’ve worked so hard to move a case right along, the idiotic legislation so often does not permit an effective or logical conclusion. It is a wonder indeed that the police just don’t lose interest, that they don’t think, what is the use, it’ll just get tossed out any way. That they do not apparently think like that is a credit to these selfless people, who work so hard only to be undermined by the legislation giving the career criminals a pass to go to collect in effect, $200. Doing some radical amendments to the legislation will likely never happen, for those in the criminal defence business (as in lawyers), would never allow this to be amended. The gravy train is wonderful for them. There now, does not that pretty much say it all in regards to why making amendments to the criminal code is not too likely to happen, eh? I am not in favour of having a slam-bang, thank you, ma’am, but what we have is insane.

Robert W. Stirling, Maple Ridge

How about dealing with the needs of 30 or more customers all vying for attention at the exact same time? Just because your child is not in school, doesn’t mean the teacher is not working. Teachers I know are at school at 7:30 a.m., and after a full day, often without a break (since recess and lunch are spent on getting things ready or extra-curricular), and after meetings with parents and other staff, coaching, marking, cleaning, and preparing for the next day, teachers I know don’t get home until 5 p.m. Often they have to take care of their own families with homework, extra-curricular activities, meals, and bed-time routines. Only then, can they turn to the bucket filled with marking and checking. Thirty students, eight subjects a day, at even about two minutes per book equals 480 minutes of work. That’s about eight extra hours of work on top of a regular 9-to-3 day. Teachers I know are already in their classrooms, getting ready for the new school year. Teachers I know have spent their “vacation” poring over a new and exciting reading program to implement. Teachers I know have already spent their own money to supplement curriculum with decorations for the classroom, manipulatives for the math program, and cute little name tags. Sure, some money is given back, but don’t kid yourself. Mr. Sawchuck – you do the math. Teachers don’t get paid overtime, or time and a half. In fact, the longer hours they work, the less they get paid per hour. Teaching the students is easy. Educating people who think the teaching profession is easy… now that’s tough. You think teachers deserve any less, try spending just five minutes in an average classroom. Just try. On the first day of school this year, thank your child’s teacher. Wish him/her well. Above all, appreciate your child’s teacher. It’s not as easy as it looks. We just smile and make it look that way. Have a great school year everyone! Joanne Figueiredo, Maple Ridge (a proud teacher)

ZsaZsa Stiasny is hunting for a new home for her current herd of 16 horses with the Healing Horses Sanctuary.

Hunting for new horse home

A local woman is desperate to find a new place for her herd of healing and rescue horses by the end of August. by Ronda Payne

editorial@mrtimes.com

For horses that help people, to be shut out of their home is a rude awakening. ZsaZsa Stiasny, owner of the Pitt Meadows’ Healing Horses Sanctuary, was given 30 days notice to move her business and 16 horses off the five acres they currently occupy. They need to find a new home in Pitt Meadows or lower Maple Ridge by Aug. 30. “It’s [Pitt Meadows or west Maple Ridge location] convenient and central to people coming to us,” Stiasny said. “I also do trail riding to fund the other horses.” Each horse that works as a trail horse and/or healing horse funds a rescue horse

that would otherwise be destroyed [Pitt farmer believes horse energy can aid humans, July 19, TIMES]. A dispute occurred between Stiasny and the main lease holder of the land. The land owner has yet to step in and resolve the issue. “The person I share the ranch with and I had a disagreement over a client issue,” she noted. “Although the client is doing tremendous.” As a result of the dispute, and because she is subletting, Stiasny was told to leave – and at the same time, the horses were denied access to the fields and arena they were accustomed to using. “We would normally be running workshops once a week, so we haven’t really been able to put any time and energy into healing work because of the disruption,” Stiasny said. She has transportation to move horses to a new location, but needs help finding a new home for the herd immediately. She can be reached at 604-376-0203.

Bonson nearly done

A community centre being built in Pitt Meadows boasts the most current green initiatives. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

They broke ground 15 months ago and are about to wrap up the entire project – possibly under budget. Don Cramb, a recreation manager for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Parks and Leisure Services, is brimming with excitement as the official opening on Sept. 17 nears. “I’ve really enjoyed this project because it is one of our first green projects,” said Cramb. “Pitt Meadows council had great foresight in pursuing a green building. This is a great example of sustainable building practices,” he added. The centre is 12,000 square feet and has many energy saving features like photovoltic panels on the roof to produce electricity, solar panels to preheat water, air-to-air heat pump, reflective roofing, heat-recovery system that reuses all warm air exhausted by the building, energyefficient windows, and occupancy sensors

for all the lights. One exciting green initiative is the recycled wood that was used to build some of the features in the centre. The wood comes from a barn built at the turn of the century, which was donated by Bill Park. Park’s grandfather was one of the original mayors of Pitt Meadows. The centuy-old wood was used to build the front reception area, the stairwell, boardroom table, and more. The centre will be a social gathering place and can accommodate various user groups like parks and recreation programs, dance programs, art classes, health and wellness activities, and private functions. “It’s definitely something we can be proud of. It shows good leadership in green initiatives,” said Pitt Meadows councillor Deb Walters. “I think its booking up pretty quickly. I see this being on the same scale as Whonnack Hall, people are booking at Whonnack Hall years in advance and I think you will see the same thing happening here,” Walters added. The entire project was budgeted at $5million. “We are right on target, and hoping to be slightly under budget at the end,” said Cramb.

Pitt Meadows blueberry farmers estimate the local harvest began two or three weeks later than usual this year due to the late spring. With summer’s return in August, so came the blueberries, and depending upon the variety, harvesting could run to mid-September according to Fauji, plant manager at Purewal Blueberry Farms. Berry volume and size vary this year depending upon the variety, with overall average outcomes. “It’s [the volume of berries] about average,” said Ting Wu of Formosa Nursery, growers of organic blueberries. With harvest running at full capacity now, Fauji is happy with the workers helping to pick the crops. “Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, we have all kinds of people working,” he said. Many local growers, like Formosa, offer blueberries at the “farm-gate” or from a stand on the property,

Refilling the cracks

A road crew is spending several days this month working on Golden Ears Bridge. They are installing new sound-deadening materials into the bridge expansion joints, which currently emit a noise particularly annoying to some residents on the north end of the bridge. After what TransLink said was a fair bit of consultation with residents, and some lab testing at the University of B.C., TransLink settled on a material that will reduce by about six decibels the noise created by vehicles going over these joints. Work should be complete within two to three weeks, depending on weather.

Therapeutic riding

Equine centre pleads for helpers The North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association is preparing for its fall horseback riding program, and putting out a desperate plea for volunteers. “We need volunteers to come forward to help groom and tack our horses, and to lead or side walk with our riders during their lesson, said coordinator Gay Conn. Horse experience is great but not

required. Anyone who enjoys the outdoors, working with wonderful people of all abilities, and loves animals, will fit in well, Conn said. NFTRA is hosting a volunteer orientation session in early September, with the fall session set to begin Sept. 19. To register, or for more information, call 604-462-7786.

Kathy Walcott (above) travelled to Peru recently, and participated in a group tour that took her to the sacred Machu Picchu. It’s a pre-Columbian 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres above sea level. It’s believed the Inca started building this estate in AD 1400, and was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911. Meanwhile, the Berard family (right) of Maple Ridge recently made a trek to B.C.’s famous gold rush town, Barkerville, where Alexa, 15, Miranda, 12, and Danica, eight, posed with a copy of their hometown newspaper.

At ValleyFair Dental Clinic we stake our reputation for excellence in family and general dentistry on the following principles: Service Orientation. The ValleyFair team are first and foremost concerned with ensuring our patients have a comfortable, friendly and relaxed experience with us.

A local pub is giving proceeds of its first ever car show to the food bank. by Sylver McLaren

Rims and chrome sparkled in the sun as temperatures hit 29 degrees Celsius Saturday at the Golden Ears Pub’s inaugural fundraiser car show in Pitt Meadows. More than 30 souped up cars and trucks were registered to compete in five categories, with all proceeds going to the local food bank. “I gave the first few cars free registration to get the word out. Although $205 for the food bank seems low, I’m happy with the turn out because registration was by donation,” said Adam van Baarsen, Golden Ears Pub’s bartender and car show organizer. “Donations ranged from $5 to $20. Some people did not donate, which was a let down, but any money is still a success for me. We had free pops and juices and anyone who donated at least $10 received

a burger and fries on the house,” said van Baarsen. “I was thinking about doing a children’s charity but I haven’t seen anything about the food bank lately and everyone agreed that was the best way to go,” he added. Custom plaques were awarded for the following: best custom: Dean Khunkhun from Extreme Autobody, with a detailed 1968 Camero; best stock ride: Charlie Wadge, with his 1963 Corvette; patron’s choice: Ferrel White, with the oldest car on the lot, a 1928 Ford; best summer ride: a classic topless white Sunbeam Tiger; and best pro-street performance: Parry Wendt, with his 1967 GTX. Wendt was integral for helping van Baarsen set up the event. “Parry did a lot to help me set up for this event, including driving me to a local car show in his hot rod as a meet and greet to the car show community. On the way he did not hesitate to show me just how well his ride performed by throwing me back to the seat in a matter of seconds on the way, said van Baarsen. James Adamick entertained.

The treatment is immunoglobulin transfusions once or twice a week, prednisone (steroids), and sometimes a cordocentesis can be done to check the baby’s platelet level. Cordocentesis is a procedure in which a sample of the fetal blood is removed from the umbilical cord. Shelley underwent these procedures and had 17 blood transfusions during her second pregnancy with Payten-Raye, who was born premature but healthy. “They call her the $1-million baby because the transfusions are so expensive.”

He’s going into Grade 3 at Whonnock Elementary and Shelley said this is the time that learning disabilities might emerge. “He is a thriving eight-year-old boy but had many specialists appointments and has had some difficulties caused by the stroke,” Shelley said. In 2005 Shelly and her husband Will had another child. This time, their daughter PaytenRaye, who also had N.A.I.T., was born with less risk because Shelley was able to undergo the necessary

They are happy and healthy siblings who are just like regular kids, the only difference is that they were born with a rare blood disorder for which treatment was available. The condition Colton and PaytenRaye Marfleet had is called Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopnia (N.A.I.T.). Now the duo are part of a global awareness campaign to educate people about N.A.I.T. and about implementing prenatal or anti-natal prevention during pregnancy. The program is on naitbabies. org. Two bears, one named Nait and one named Naitalie, are making their way around the world visiting the families of those who have been effected by N.A.I.T. The Marfleets will keep this bear, Naitalie, for about a week before sending it on to the next family. The organization hopes to bring awareness to their cause. “We hope that one day doctors can construct a vaccine so that no other baby or family has to suffer,” said mom, Shelley Marfleet. When Colton was born in 2003, the disorder caused him to have a stroke in utero. N.A.I.T. is in the mother’s blood. Shelley’s blood platelets attacked the unborn baby’s platelets.

MICRODERMABRASION FACIAL

Troy Landreville/TIMES

Willow Manor resident Justina Doerksen celebrated her 100th year with friends and family on Aug. 19.

Widow reflects on changes A Maple Ridge senior became a centenarian on Aug. 19. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Justina Doerksen was born in Herbert, Sask. on Aug. 19, 1911. The Maple Ridge senior’s birth pre-dated two world wars, commercial flight, rock ‘n’ roll, electricity in most North American homes, and the rise and fall of communism. Closer to home, the District of Maple Ridge, incorporated on Sept. 12, 1874, was just 37 years young. Doerksen, the last surviving sibling of a family that included six brothers and two sisters, celebrated her 100th year at her home in the Willow Manor seniors community this past weekend. “I was the seventh [sibling],” Doerksen said. “Maybe that’s why I’m still here.” Approximately 80 people attended her birthday party, which included a cake, speeches from her family as well as herself, and a gift of photos from staff members at Willow Manor.

A homemaker, Doerksen, and her husband Henry – who passed away in 1989 – had four sons: Henry, now 79, Dick, now 76, John, now 73, and George, who was killed by a bear in 1981. “He was at Liard [River] Hot Springs camping and a grizzly bear came,” Doerksen recalled. After moving to B.C., the couple made their home in Pitt Meadows, where they lived for 52 years. As time marched along, the world changed around Doerksen and her family, and in recent times she has been reticent to embrace the technical age we now live in. For example, she’s never used a computer because, she said, it “doesn’t mean nothing to me. I don’t understand it. And maybe it’s because I don’t want to understand it.” “Things have changed too much,” she offered. “I think we have gone too worldly. My niece wrote a book about my father and she said he tried to keep us from getting too worldly.” Growing up in Saskatchewan, Doerksen said life was much simpler in the early part of the 20th century, than it is today.

Saucy secret to success

T

he recipe at right contains ingredients high in fat. But t his classic sauce does make a wonderfully rich treat to top your favourite seafood or chicken. Beurre Blanc, also known as white butter sauce, is a brilliant combination of flavours and richness The original version is difficult for the average home cook to prepare, but my adjustment in ingredients eases preparation. In an original classic recipe of Beurre Blanc the goal is to melt the butter slowly, one piece at a time, while whisking to incorporate air into the butter as it melts. If the pan is too hot, or the butter not cold enough, or the whisking is inefficient, the butter will become a greasy mess. My secret ingredient is whipping cream. Adding two or three

Beurre Blanc

tablespoons to the reduction of shallots, white wine, and white wine by Chef Dez vinegar will Visit Chef Dez at www.chefdez.com. act as a Send questions to dez@chefdez.com stabilizer to help you whip air into the butter. The whipping cream helps to give the butter substance and an increased ability to absorb air without separating. I have never seen anyone fail, with the addition of this secret ingredient. Shallots are important in this recipe because onions would be too overpowering. Shallots, although more expensive, offer a sweeter, milder taste, and are a classic ingredient for a proper Beurre Blanc sauce.

2 shallots, minced ¼ (one quarter) cup white wine 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 2-3 tbsp whipping cream ½ (one half) cup cold butter, in small cubes Salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste 1. Add shallots, wine, and vinegar to a medium size pan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce the liquid in the pan to one tablespoon. 2. Stir in the whipping cream. 3. Reduce the heat to very low and start whisking the mixture while adding the cold butter pieces one at a time. Make sure the butter is melting slowly so you can whisk it into a sauce consistency – if it melts too quickly it will just be a greasy mess. If it is melting too quickly, remove the pan from the heat for a minute or two and whisk it constantly before returning it to the low heat to continue whisking in the remaining butter. The addition of the cream in the previous step will act as a stabilizer to help you to whip air into the butter to become a sauce. 4. When all the butter has been incorporated, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Makes approximately 3/4 cup.

Centenarian marks the end of an era

…continued from page A23

She married Henry in 1929, just before “the hard times of the 1930s,” she said. “We started out as a young couple, quite well to do,” she said. “We had built our castles in the sky and they all came tumbling down.” Within seven years, crops dried up, and the couple suffered through extremely lean times. “We were farmers,” Doerksen said. “What is a farmer to do when you have no crops? When you have no wheat, you have no money.” By 1936, she and Henry had lost everything. “We had two children by then but nothing else,” she said. Henry went to school to become an electrical inspector, and worked in that vocation for the next three decades. He died two months shy of the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary. “It was a good marriage,” Doerksen said. Looking forward, she said she has lived a long life but “would just as soon go anytime.” She explains: “It seems like I’ve

Libraries

Summer reading club wrapping up

As vacation time draws to a close, the Maple Ridge Library still has a number of activities on the books. by Christine McPhee

Special to the TIMES

A

s the month of August winds down, summer is coming to a close. And so is the summer reading club at the Maple Ridge Library. This year, more than 1,500 kids, from preschoolers to teens, read their way through their summer holidays, collecting stickers and prizes, participating in games, quizzes, and draws, as well as enjoying all kinds of reading-related entertainment, from storytimes to puppet shows, and music to crafts. But did you know the Summer Reading Club (SRC) doesn’t

just happen in Maple Ridge? Kids from all 24 Fraser Valley Regional Library branches – from Tsawwassen to Yale – joined with others from all across B.C. to participate. And if you didn’t happen to join us this summer, don’t worry, SRC will be back again next year. To celebrate all the amazing reading accomplishments of our SRC members, Maple Ridge Library is hosting two wrap-up parties in August.

SRC Finale

On Tuesday, Aug. 30, there’s going to be a party at the Memorial Peace Park bandstand starting at 11 a.m. All members of the Read to Me and Summer Reading Club are invited to join us for this celebration in the park. Medals will be handed out to all kids who have finished their reading records. They can enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with facepainters, bal-

loons, crafts, and hot dogs. They can even bring a book of their own for the book swap with other SRC members. Kids who didn’t quite get enough reading done by the medal ceremony can continue reading, collecting stickers, and working to earn their medals until the end of September. There are other late summer events you don’t want to miss. • Storytime at the Haney Farmers’ Market – Join us most Saturdays at the Haney Farmers’ Market in Memorial Peace Park. Look for the Fraser Valley Regional Library tent. Stories at 10 and 11 a.m. • Special doggie-themed storytime – On Saturday, Aug 27, at the Haney Farmers’ Market hosts Doggie Days – join us at the market for stories and songs about our four-legged friends. • Reading is Delicious Design your own Bookmark Contest – Design a bookmark that celebrates books, reading, and librar-

Remember your vacation. Not the medical bills. The days are getting shorter, grey skies and dreary weather are looming. If you’re planning an extended fall or winter trip south in search of sunny blue skies, you are probably also planning your travel insurance. If you’re like many snowbirds, you may even have an annual policy to cover you throughout the year. However, if you are heading away for a longer period of time, here are a few travel insurance factors to consider before driving or jetting off:

T ^cbb j]X[ \]bclj l]Vg[ j]X f][ ongoing treatment and follow-up visits while you’re away? Typically, emergency medical insurance is for just that – emergencies. It is not the same as provincial health care, which covers regular doctor visits. Most benefits end once the medical emergency is over and will not cover you for ongoing consultation and treatment. Unknowingly continuing with follow-up doctor visits could result in a costly medical bill for which you would be responsible.

If so, are you covered if they act up while you’re outside of B.C.? Some companies offer optional coverage for pre-existing conditions, but it’s important to understand how this coverage works. Familiarize yourself with all of the related definitions and exclusions.

It’s important to note that Health Insurance BC may only cover 10% of medical expenses incurred outside of the province. Considering the high cost of health care outside of Canada, especially in the US, it’s crucial to ensure you have adequate insurance. You can purchase out-of-province emergency medical coverage through private insurers to protect yourself from the financial burden an accident or illness could cause. Before you go, remember to research and purchase the appropriate policy for you and your trip. BCAA can provide you with expert advice and travel insurance coverage to suit your individual needs, so you can be sure to remember your next vacation, not the medical bills.

Lori Allan worked for nearly two weeks to complete a mural on the batting cage at the Albion Sports Complex. All four sides have different scenes depicting sports or nature.

Albion

Artists’ mural spruces up batting cage An art teacher from Maple Ridge and a number of helpers painted sports and nature themes on the batting cage at a local ball park.

by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

It took 12 days and 12 artists to paint a mural on the batting cage at the Albion Sports Complex. It was finished Thursday, Aug. 18. The Ridge Meadows Minor Softball Association contracted local artist Lori Allan to design and paint a sports- and nature-themed mural. “It took about 12 days and about

250 man hours to finish,” said Allan, who recruited 11 of her artclass students and a couple ball players to help. “If it was me alone it would have taken four months,” she added. The four walls add up to about 2,000 square feet. The long front wall shows various sports scenes, the south wall shows a number of different sports balls and the back and north end are painted with trees and lakes. Although Allan has been painting murals for about a dozen years, this is her first one outdoors. The corrugated cladding was her biggest challenge. She was concerned about the distortion and she went online but only found

two examples for reference. on it for a number of weeks until “I was surprised to see that gencompletion. This means that each erally it isn’t done.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Past delays are over – go forth, start new projects, contact new people. The main emphasis now and over the weeks ahead lies on socializing, casual friends, siblings, short trips, errands, details, paperwork and communications – if you start a new venture in these Sunday eve or Monday you could succeed splendidly as time goes by. You’re more than usually attractive to the opposite sex, but you might also be a little overbearing, so use a light touch. Slow down, be restful, care for family midweek. Avoid temper. Romance, creativity, risks and kids reward you Thursday eve, Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Past delays are over. Chase money, new clients, a pay raise, buy and sell items, now to late September. (Avoid legal hassles to midlate September.) Your memory and your sensual attractiveness strengthen. Deal with surfaces, not depths – the latter can confuse you a bit until February 2012 – at that point you’ll begin a decade and a half in which depths will be your element. Your intuition will soar (then, not now). Your career luck is great, so seek elevation in both position and income, especially Sunday/Monday (and Friday: out on your own?). Watch what you say/write mid-week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma, courage and clout are high, especially Sunday/ Monday. Start important projects, tackle jobs that formerly intimidated you. Seek attention, ask favours. Be careful with money and purchasing mid-week – safest time for shopping is Wednesday night. Contacts, friends and siblings are a source of luck Thursday noon through Friday – so are communications, paperwork and travel. Friday (and Saturday eve) bless a realty purchase or investment. In personal terms, Friday offers deep bonding. Make a sexual, financial or lifestyle wish come true in September!

High Payments? Penalty? No Equity? Facing Bankruptcy or Pre Foreclosure?

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Knuckle down to your work. Past delays and indecision are over. It’s time to look to the future. But to get there, you have to plough through three (more) weeks of chores. You’re in a lucky money year, so your work efforts should yield substantial rewards. This is also a good time to purchase machinery, a car, computer, etc., especially this Sunday eve through Monday. Relationships – enemies as well as friends – confront you Tuesday to Thursday morning. There’s no easy path here. Apologize if needed (to fight harder is useless). Sex, finances meet luck Thursday/Friday! Taurus April 20-May 20: You’re lucky this year – keep this in mind over the next few weeks, when your romantic, creative, “sporting” and emotional luck rises strongly. Be willing to expand, to take a big chance. You face a big change in your life, one of the two most fortunate changes in a 13-year period. You could meet a love that changes your life. If already attached, you could take a chance on an investment, could greet news of pregnancy, or if older, you might find the perfect pleasurable, creative retirement lifestyle. You’re a winner now, especially Sunday/ Monday and Friday! Gemini May 21-June 20: You’re not lucky “on the outside” this year. Seek quietude, rest, contemplation, solitude – NOT independence. Government agencies, charities, spiritual groups (and individuals) institutions and “head offices” will treat you well. My paradoxical advice: seek others constantly. Most of those you approach will gently refuse, yet, oddly, you’ll feel satisfied, serene and good about the experience. This “approaching” is a healing process, pulling you out of past alienation, anger.A good opportunity confronts you in real estate, family dynamics (Sunday/Monday, and later).

August 28 - September 3, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Take a restful approach. Bosses need diplomacy. The weeks ahead feature (and reward) solitude, quietude, contemplation, planning, recuperation and therapy, research, charity, spirituality, and administrative duties – including dealings with government and institutions. A “new day” might begin with one or two of these Sunday/ Monday. Good luck is almost certain in all these zones, leading to improvements in finances, lifestyle, and health. You might uncover a valuable secret. Your energy improves somewhat midweek. Money, purchases and “sensual sex” are lucky Friday, not Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Happiness and hope visit you to late September, especially this Sunday/Monday. So do popularity, social delights, entertainment, group affairs (e.g., clubs, conventions) and, possibly, light romance. The social and romantic elements are significant, as you are in a year (to June, 2012) of great benefit through relationships, deals, contracts, etc. So a light romance could lead to marriage, a social contact to a lucrative business partnership, etc. Be open, eager – mingle! Careful mid-week: secrets, gossip and governments don’t like you. Friday, you grasp the world and succeed! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead feature career, ambitions, status and reputation, dealings with VIPs, parents and bosses. Higher-ups favour you until mid-September, so push ahead, present ideas, projects and proposals, especially Sunday eve into Monday afternoon. The delays and indecisions of August have dissolved. Your hopes and social happiness rise Tuesday/Wednesday, but events and circumstances interfere, so wait until Wednesday night, Thursday morning to find agreement, love. You tire Thursday noon to Saturday noon, but Friday’s very lucky for work, career, dealings with head office.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recent delays and indecision are over, so proceed confidently. The weeks ahead feature gentle love, far travel, higher education, intellect, publishing, wisdom, law, culture and religion. All these will be blessed by graciousness, an unexpected luck, and affection between “the parties.” Sunday/Monday strike this “love and travel” keynote, and might plant the first seeds of a good project. Be ambitious but careful mid-week. You’re in charge in a deep way, but a partner or “open enemy” isn’t ready to concede! Popularity and happiness visit you late week – a wish comes true. Aquarius Jan.20-Feb.18: Your relations with others continue, but the accent changes from excitement to productivity – lovers make babies, agreements are funded, discoveries lead to investments. These, and the whole zone of secrets, research, finances, sexual desire, health, lifestyle choices, changes and commitments, are unusually fortunate. The delays and mistakes of August are ended, so proceed confidently. One of the absolute best financial moves you could take now would be to buy a home or other real estate – it’s one of the best months in 156 (13 years) to do so. Luckiest days: Monday, Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The delays of August are over, so march forward. The weeks ahead fill with lucky, exciting meetings, new horizons, relocation themes, opportunities, dealings with the public – even fame! Sunday and Monday are seminal. They might start a relationship, opening or venture that develops later. Be diplomatic, eager to join. Communicate with a loved one, with partners, associates – the result could be a wedding, a contract or other boost. Be careful Tuesday/Wednesday: finances meet unlucky obstacles. Wisdom, legal affairs, far travel, education and love meet luck Thursday/Friday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
