Nature’s arteries celebrated at Alouette, Kanaka

Rivers Day, a provincial, national, and global event, will take place at two river locations in Maple Ridge with activities for people of all ages. by Maria Rantanen

The chum and pink salmon are faring well, but the Alouette River Management Society still needs to help the coho and chinook to keep their populations robust. This Sunday is the day to celebrate both the Alouette River and its integral role in the Maple Ridge as well as Kanaka Creek and its watershed. Rivers Day will take place for the 18th time from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Allco Park, put on by ARMS, and at the same time at Kanaka Creek Regional Park, organized by the Kanaka Educational and Environmental Partnership Society – KEEPS. Rivers day celebration began in the province in 1980, and Maple Ridge hopped on board in 1994 with an event at Allco Park. Across the province, 75,000 people are expected to take part in a variety of Rivers Day celebrations. Locally, usually a thousand people show up to celebrate Alouette River at the ARMS facility and hatchery in north Maple Ridge, according to Amanda Crowston, executive director of ARMS. “It fits in very well with our mandate of connecting our community with our river,” Crowston said. The Alouette River holds many values for Maple Ridge residents, Crowston said, but it also has environmental values as local wildlife, bears, raccoons, and otters, get their food from the rivers. Crowston said ARMS hopes people will enjoy Allco Park and the hatchery during the event, and learn to appreciate the river and learn what the hatchery does. Since the hatchery opened in 1979, they’ve reared and released 35,000,000 salmon.

Dave Rempel will bring his waterfowl to the ARMS Rivers Day celebration on Sunday.

Maple Ridge man charged with murder by Kim Bolan

Postmedia Network Inc.

A Maple Ridge man is the third person to be charged in a high-profile double slaying in Mission that left one victim clinging to life for three days before eventually succumbing to her wounds. Bruce Main, 64, of Maple Ridge was arrested Saturday and charged with murdering Lisa Cheryl Dudley, 37, and her boyfriend, Guthrie Jolan McKay, 33, on Sept. 18, 2008. Last May, Jack Woodruff, 52,

was charged with first-degree murder, and in June, Justin Andrew MacKinnon, 25, was added to the indictment. Police have not said how the three are linked. The targeted hit is believed to have been related to the drug trade. “While the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been successful in securing charges for the three individuals, the investigation remains ongoing. In order to protect the integrity of this investigation, IHIT will not be providing

further details at this time,” Sgt. Jennifer Pound said Tuesday. Main has no criminal record, according to the online court database. He has been remanded in custody until today (Thursday, Sept. 22) to consult a lawyer. He owns a house in Maple Ridge and is a millwright by profession. The Dudley-MacKay murders have been the subject of internal investigations after an RCMP officer failed to follow up on the initial 911 call made by a neighbour of

the couple after he heard gunshots. As a result, Dudley lay wounded and clinging to life for three days before a neighbour found the couple inside their home in the 31000 block of Greenwood Drive. Dudley later died. The officer who responded, Const. Mike White, was later reprimanded and lost a day’s pay. He arrived near the couple’s home after the initial call, circled around and left without getting out of his car or speaking to the 911 caller directly.

Lisa Cheryl Dudley (above) and Guthrie Jolan McKay were murdered in 2008.

Recent shake-ups raise awareness The Sept. 9 earthquake and ensuing aftershock has local officials talking about what to do if disaster strikes. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Mother Earth burped twice recently, and the thought of a major tremor hitting Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows might have some residents shaking in their boots. Another earthquake struck off the coast of Vancouver Island last Thursday (Sept. 15), the second to hit the region that week. The U.S. Geological Survey noted that the 4.1 magnitude quake struck about 25 kilometres off Nootka Sound in Northwestern Vancouver Island, roughly in the same area as a 6.3 earthquake that struck Sept. 9. The latest shake-up was likely an aftershock related to last week’s more powerful earthquake, according to Natural Resources Canada. In the first quake, no damage or injuries were reported. Generally speaking, the number of aftershocks and the magnitude of the largest one increase with the size of the main shock, explained SFU earth scientist and earthquake expert John Clague. “For example, aftershocks are far more common after earthquakes of magnitude 7 than earthquakes of magnitude 6.4,” Clague noted last Thursday. “However, it comes as no surprise that [the Sept. 9] earthquake produced aftershocks. The aftershocks may continue for awhile, but probably not for long. There is a low probability that last week’s earthquake could trigger another large earthquake.” Even so, local residents should always be at the ready, says District of Maple Ridge Emergency Social Services director Barbara Morgan. The first line of defence is drop, cover, and hold on, she stressed. Resist the temptation to run outside, because sidewalks outside of potentially crumbling buildings are one of the most

Ceri Marlo, manager of legislative services with the District of Maple Ridge, and Maple Ridge’s Emergency Social Services director Barbara Morgan, with some of the information and supplies vital in case of an emergency. Bottom inset – Basic necessities needed in the event of an emergency include water, rope, and blankets. dangerous places to stand when the ground shakes. Instead, drop to the floor, under a solid structure, Morgan said. The second strategy is to arm yourself with knowledge about what to do when disaster strikes, and equip yourself with all items necessary for survival for at least 72 hours. “Assess your situation, evacuate where it’s safe to do so, and then get hold of a radio that you are supposed to have in your emergency kit and start listening [about] where to go,” Morgan said. Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Emergency Social Services team have identified more than 70 facilities as possible reception centres. In a disaster, consideration for a facility is given as to being in the safe zone and the safety of the building.

At that point, Morgan explained, an announcement would be made on the radio as to where the public can go if they are in need of assistance such as food, clothing, and shelter. Morgan related, “We don’t release information ahead of time on these sites because they need to identified as a safe location first.” Approximately 55 per cent of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents work outside the community, which is divided from points south, west, and east by three bridges. If the earth shakes, those bridges will be closed to traffic until they can be inspected by an engineer. This is why being prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of three days is so vital. To learn more about what to do in case of an emergency, visit www.mapleridge.ca or www.pittmeadows.bc.ca, and click on visitors/emergency services/municipal emergency program. Any organization that would like to have a presentation on emergency preparedness can contact Morgan at 604-467-7301 or email bmorgan@mapleridge.ca.

Being prepared

In an emergency, you will need some basic supplies. A basic emergency kit consists of: • at least two litres of water per person, per day; include small bottles that can be carried easily in case of an evacuation order; • food that won’t spoil, such as canned food, energy bars, and dried foods (replace food and water once a year); • a manual can opener; • a crank or battery-operated radio (and extra batteries); • extra keys to your car and house; • a copy of your emergency plan and contact information; • if applicable, other items such as prescription medication, infant formula, equipment for people with disabilities, or food, water, and medication for your pets or service animal. Additional items include candles and matches, a change of clothing and footwear for each household member, sleeping bags and warm blankets, toiletries, hand sanitizers, utensils, garbage bags, toilet paper, household chlorine bleach, basic tools, a whistle, and duct tape.

The District has emergency preparedness guides available at its facility, 11995 Haney Place, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Rivers feed wildlife ...continued from page A1

The hatchery is run by BC Corrections. After the BC Hydro dam was built, there no longer was pink and chinook salmon in the Alouette River. Both have been restored. Chinook salmon eggs are brought in from the Chilliwack River and are raised into fry at the hatchery. The restoration of chum salmon has been so successful that they are no longer raised at the hatchery. Pink salmon is stable and is also continuing on its own without help from the hatchery. The coho salmon population is still in trouble, Crowston said, because of loss of wetlands, tributaries, and ponds, and ARMS is still trying to boost its population. The ARMS Rivers Day celebration is a free family event with live music, a barbecue, bouncy castle, children’s fishing pond, environmental displays, and children’s activities. Kids will be allowed to fish for trout at the event, thanks to the B.C. Federation of Drift Fishers. This year, Maple RidgePitt Meadows school board Trustee Dave Rempel will bring birds from his Whonnock bird sanctuary to the event. He will have

a variety of geese and ducks, Australian swans, and sandhill cranes. The birds that he has nurtured for years in his east Maple Ridge property fit well with the theme of Rivers Day. While his focus is birds, “there’s so much beauty and grace in nature,” he said, and he wants to share his birds with the larger public. The birds will be housed in cages built by BC Corrections with lumber donated by Haney Builders, Rempel said. The Allco Fish Hatchery is at 24959 Alouette Rd. in Maple Ridge. The KEEPS event is held at Kanaka Creek Regional Park. To reach this site, travel to the intersection of the east end of Haney Bypass and Lougheed Highway 7, then head east to River Road. The parking area is immediately east of the railway crossing. Activities at this free event include canoe tours of lower Kanaka Creek, and volunteers will be on hand to explain the flora, fauna, and history of this area and how the public can become involved with its preservation. The event is co-hosted by KEEPS, Metro Vancouver Parks, and Bell-Irving Hatchery. Both events run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The building next door, the Flagship building, was also built by Tekton on a lot that had been empty since records were kept in Maple Ridge, Bissky pointed out. Bissky’s brother Wayne, a local architect, is doing the design work on the building. There will be 40-plus residential units in the building.

VENUE: PITT MEADOWS FAMILY REC CENTRE 12027 Harris Road, Pitt Meadows COST:

The construction of a six-storey residential and commercial building began recently. The commercial part on the ground floor will have room for a restaurant and six other commercial units – about 9,000 square feet of retail space. The six-storey building being planned at Lougheed and 223rd will be called Urban Green II – the first Urban Green apartment building is on 228th Street and was built by the same group of investors, Bissky pointed out. 09010495

Huge steel plates reaching high into the sky are ready to be pounded in on an empty lot at Lougheed Highway and 223rd Street. A six-storey apartment building is planned for the lot with commercial space on the ground level wrapping around three sides of the building. So far, permits to do earthwork and stabilization of the lot have been issues, and Paul Bissky, the building superintendent with the project management company Tekton, said it should be 14 to 16 months before the entire building is completed. “The city is cooperating,” Bissky said. “They’ve offered this servicing permit before the weather turned.” The town core incentive program most likely had a lot to do with attracting investors to Maple Ridge to build on this lot that has been empty for decades, Bissky said, and savings will most likely be in development cost charges and property taxes. Currently, the steel forms – each weighing as much as four cars – are being put in to stabilize the property. The final building permit has not been issued yet, but permits came through to do the work to stabilize the sides of the excavation, includ-

Our View

Job threats threatened jobs Sometimes democracy doesn’t seem to work quite as well as the threat of democracy. The community was justifiably incensed when it learned that 29 jobs were in jeopardy as a result of a $270,000 budget cut – 29 jobs held by people with developmental disabilities. Those are folks who can’t just turn around and pick up another job somewhere else. Let’s forget about the vast compassionate side of this issue for just a moment. Helping them out makes plain good business sense. Their jobs at the Ridge Meadows recycling depot are necessary and vital to the greener future we all want – and they are jobs that many people wouldn’t take. And these are folks who, without a helping hand, would constitute an increasing drain on the province’s financial resources. Instead of paying for them to sit in a care home or in some other provincially subsidized accommodation, giving them jobs circulates some of our tax dollars back into the economy. And the employment status gives them a sense of self-worth that they deserve as much as any other working person in British Columbia. These are all pertinent points that seemed to have escaped the desk jockeys who mark their time at Community Living BC – a Crown corporation that should be staffed by people who understand the concept of community at least as well as the Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge residents whose outrage undoubtedly helped spur the politicians to action – if only to save their own jobs. The funding is restored. The jobs are maintained. Self-respect has been preserved. Not a bad day for the threat of democracy. – B.G.

Good education Exodus like Ten a balancing act Commandments Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

One Mom’s Suggested Curriculum, a column by Maria Rantanen in the Sept. 13 TIMES was a great read. Ms. Rantanen, offers 10 items that could be included if and when there is educational reform. I found myself mentally ticking off a good portion of the “suggested curriculum” items listed. In my travels through our schools I see many of the items already happening in our progressive district. Two major questions come to mind after reading this piece: Are we preparing our children for success in the future out in the fast-paced, competitive, ever-changing world? Are we giving our kids a well-rounded kit bag of life skills? From what I observe in my trustee role and as a parent of three school-aged kids, I would say we are definitely on the right track. Our environmental school program offers kids a whole new way of learning that will give them lifelong skills. High-school age students have the opportunity in Grade 10 to create a resume and take part in mock job interviews with local professionals – I could have used that life-skill practice in Grade 10. I am continually impressed by our high school career centres and course options that are available. I have visited schools that use school stores to help students learn hands on finances and others that hold pioneer days where they are exposed to life skills from a simpler time. There is so much more happening in our schools –but you get the idea. The challenge these days is to keep kids engaged while making the learning relevant to their lives – if we fail in that – we lose them to an electronic device that will fill that need in an instant. It’s all about balance – solid basic life skills on one side of the teeter totter and technology on the other. Trustee Susan Carr, School District 42

Not since Charlton Heston and The Ten Commandments, have I witnessed such a mass exodus of biblical proportions to Wal-Mart in Port Coquitlam. All it would take is Dave Alexander to raise his staff one morning at Bruce’s Market and Maple Ridge would be a deserted ghost town. Maple Ridge council and staff need to get with the program before it’s too late – or maybe it’s already too late. Take for instance Chilliwack, a town of equal population, which has a commercial tax base of 88 per cent, or even Pitt Meadows, which has a commercial base of 13 per cent – almost double that of Maple Ridge. As a result, we live in Maple Ridge but leave to work, shop, or dine out. We need to zone for more commercial development to provide much needed local employment and income for a broader tax base and relief for our beleaguered taxpayers.

Uncouth Campbell Dear Editor,

After all the fuss around Gordon Campbell and his appointment to the Order of B.C. – with the outcry from the public and the bending of the nomination rules on his behalf by the advisory committee – the man doesn’t even have the common courtesy to accept it in person. What rudeness. A final one-fingered salute to the taxpayers of B.C. What a great role model.

Provincial politics

Missing Gord – Wilson that is Can you believe the chaotic state of politics in B.C.? First you have the NDP that occupies centre left, which is as it should be, then you have the Conservatives on the right which is also as it should be, then you have the BC Liberals on the right of right, which is about as far from the real Liberals historical place in the political spectrum as you can get. Maple Ridge, for example, has Liberal MLA Marc Dalton, who was far too Conservative for even the Conservative party. Now, Christy Clark wants to replace him with a federal Conservative Terry Becker, which undoubtedly would be a small step in the right direction – at least. How can you believe anything the BC ‘Lieberals’ say when even their brand is a lie. The BC ‘Lieberals’ should, for the sake of everybody in the middle of the political spectrum, at least change their name to something more in line with their true nature (pick one), then maybe a legitimate centrist party could emerge for those of us who are literally out in the cold.

T he provincial Liberal brand is ruined as far as a centre, centre-right political vehicle and will be for at least the next few decades, something is desperately needed to fill that political vacuum, and give B.C. voters a clear, honest choice for which party they mark their “X” on. Looking back it was a sad day for the Liberal brand, and centrists like myself, when Gordon Campbell deposed Gordon Wilson as the Liberal leader.

Wayne Clark, Maple Ridge

Stave Falls death

We represent accident victims in BC & Alberta, NOT Insurance Companies - FREE initial consultation

Accused on trial in China

Ang Li was charged with killing his girlfriend and dumping her body east of Maple Ridge.

Almost nine years after student Amanda Zhao was found dead in Stave Lake, her former boyfriend, Ang Li, has gone on trial in Beijing. The trial isn’t open to the public or the media, but Zhao’s and Li’s parents are present, along with a representative from the Canadian Embassy. Zhao, 21, was found stuffed in a suitcase near Stave Lake in October 2002. Li, who had been living with Zhao in Burnaby, fled to China before he could be charged in Canada. All evidence has been handed over to the Chinese, who will prosecute the case in Beijing.

Amanda Zhao, seen with her former boyfriend Ang Li, was found dead near Stave Lake in 2002. Chinese authorities will not say what the charges are or how long the trial is expected to last. Li’s parents told the court Tuesday that they were quite concerned how their son had been treated in the past couple of years, as he waited for his trial. Zhao’s parents felt there was very little remorse

LAWYERS PERSONAL INJURY

from Li and his parents in regards to what they believe occurred. The trial continued Wednesday, but it isn’t known when a verdict can be expected. Seven months after he returned to China, B.C. prosecutors charged Li, who had been an engineering student at Simon Fraser University, with seconddegree murder. Zhao was strangled, according to evidence at the 2004 trial of Li’s cousin Han Zhang, who was charged with being an accessory after the fact. He was found not guilty. Canada has no extradition treaty with China, which considers the murder case within its jurisdiction because both the victim and prime suspect were Chinese citizens.

Pitt chopper pilot dies in crash

By Matthew Claxton

48 50 years years All personal injuries... however caused

A pilot who crashed near Hope was a “jack of all trades” who had worked in Langley and Pitt Meadows.

Over

work in the search area when the pilot noticed the crash scene. “We would like to thank the communities for their support through phoning in with search tips and for their respect for the family’s wishes for privacy during this difficult time,” said searchmaster Capt. David Burneau of the 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron, 19 Wing Comox. Phillipson’s company, Sky FX, did a bit of everything, Miller remembered. “Primarily he was a charter guy,” he said. However, Phillipson also flew pipeline inspections, flew both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and was working to open a flight school. He hadn’t yet got his certification when he crashed, Miller said. This was not Phillipson’s first crash. Several years ago, he crashed in an airplane while travelling to the Okanagan.

The exhibition West Coast Colours, featuring work by the Whonnock Weavers and Spinners Guild, is currently on display at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, inside The ACT, until Oct. 1. Weaving, knitting, crocheting, hand-spun yarns, felting, and basketry is on display. Handmade shawls, scarves, and other items by guild members will be on sale during the show.

Police blotter

Drug seizure at hotel on Lougheed

Police seized crack cocaine, crystal meth, heroin, and cash in Maple Ridge Tuesday. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Busted! Police are recommending charges of possession of controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking against a 30-year-old Maple Ridge man. Plain-clothed police gained grounds to search a room at a hotel in the 21600 block of Lougheed Highway on Tuesday, Sept. 20. They executed the warrant at about 3:30 p.m, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Dale Somerville. Mounties seized a significant amount of crack cocaine, heroin, and crystal methamphetamine from both the suspect and the hotel room, along with a large amount of money, which police feel is proceeds from the sale and distribution of illegal drugs, Somerville said. The suspect has been

Ridge Meadows RCMP showed off a large quantity of illegal drugs and cash seized on Tuesday. released from police custody, and will have to appear in court in February of 2012.

Two cars taken

Police are investigating reports of two vehicles being stolen sometime between 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18 and 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19. The first vehicle reported is a blue 2009 Lexus RX350 SUV, which was taken from a home on

201st Street in Maple Ridge. The SUV had only a rear licence plate – 606 WGH – on it at the time of the theft. The second vehicle is a red 1993 Honda Civic, which was stolen from 225th Street in Maple Ridge. This car had British Columbia licence plate 122 GTP on it at the time of the theft. According to Somerville, neither vehicle has been recovered yet.

Anyone with any information in regards to any of these, or other, crimes is asked to contact Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604463-6251. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can call CrimeStopper at 1800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at www.bccrimestoppers.com. Crime Stoppers pays a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Twenty-nine riders, 900 km, nine days, one goal By Shivani Malli “Life is like riding. We can work as individuals or together. Life is easier when we work together towards a common goal,” says Bob Lee, a BC Ambulance Services paramedic and third time rider of the Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast team. For Lee and the rest of his team, the common goal that is at the forefront of their vision as they ride throughout the various communities on Tour, is to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research and support programs. Lee points out, “When you’re on Tour, it’s more than just cycling.

It’s about meeting kids, families and communities who are affected by cancer and hearing their heartwarming stories. And if I inspire others along the way to donate, then I will have truly reached the finish line of Tour.” “Our team is a community in itself. Together, we’ll reach the top of the hill, smiling and laughing. Some riders are even huffing and puffing away, but that’s OK, because we’ll all make it. To me, this is like childhood cancer survivors, where they’ve made it over the bumps and the big hill with the help, generosity and support of others,”says Lee. Lee leaves us with a nice twist to

an old proverb, “It takes a community to raise a child. For childhood cancer to be beaten it will take a community to raise the funds.” The Cops for Cancer team needs support from local communities to help the Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon Division raise money for pediatric cancer and support programs like the acclaimed Camp Goodtimes.

Animal welfare

Whiskers gala set for weekend

A Pitt Meadows golf club is the setting for a rescue shelter’s annual fundraiser this weekend.

FOR PROVIDING HOPE AND SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE WITH NEUROMUSCULAR DISORDERS.

by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

The fifth annual Wishes 4 Whiskers Gala hopes it makes as much money as it did last year, and more. The Senior Animals in Need Today Society (SAINTS) fundraiser is on Sept. 24 at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club. “Last year we raised $28,000 – for an animal rescue that’s really good,” said Sheila Kullar, SAINTS volunteer and funraising chair. Kullar said more than 45 per cent of the $28,000 was made from table sponsorships at the gala and from animal sponsorships. “We are a Missionbased rescue, but we take animals from all over the Lower Mainland, including the Maple Ridge SPCA,” said Kullar. “So far we have sold 120 tickets for the gala,” she added. The guests can expect to have a scrumptious buffet dinner followed by a presentation on SAINTS rescue

DEAL COMING SOON!

Whonnock Lake Day made its comeback and according to organizer Yukiko Tanaka, “it was smooth.” The Whonnock Community Association hosted the all-day event Sept. 18, after a two-year break. “A few hundred people came I think, but we were not counting,” said Tanaka. Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club put on the breakfast, followed by a community morning church service hosted by Cornerstone Church and by the time those were finished the weather had cleared up, according Tanaka. “Outside was miserable at first, but by the time the breakfast and service let out it was dry,” said Tanaka. The pony club hosted lunch and the corn on the cob and beef dip sold out quickly.

These three documents deal with three different legal situations. Having them will save you and your family a great deal of cost and stress.

What is a will?

A will is a document in which you explain what you want done with the assets that you own solely in your own name when you die. These assets typically consist of real estate, money, investments, and personal or household belongings that you own. A will doesn’t deal with certain assets. A will generally doesn’t cover assets that you jointly own with another person, for example, a joint bank account or a house owned in joint tenancy. Also, a will may not apply to assets like life insurance or RRSPs, where you’ve already designated a beneficiary. In a will, you name a person or company to be the “executor.” The executor gathers up the estate, pays your debts, and divides what remains of your estate among the “beneficiaries” – the people named in your will to receive a share of your estate. If you like, you can appoint more than one executor, who can act together as co-executors. You should also appoint an alternate executor, if the first executor isn’t able to act. If you have minor children, appoint a guardian in your will. The guardian will to look after your children if they’re younger than 19 when you die. This will avoid confusion in your extended family as to who should care for your children if both you and the other parent die before they become adults. The guardian will also receive funds from your executor for the benefit of your child.

Finding homework help in the stacks, online by Jo-Ann Sleiman

Special to The TIMES

Your local library has more to offer in the way of homework help than you might think. In addition to the usual encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, math review workbooks, classic novels, plays, and non-fiction on just about every topic, the library gives access to a whole world of homeworkfriendly resources and services online, all available in-library or from your home computer. The following are just a few examples: • Common novel study titles and classics like The Outsiders, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, as well as all of Shakespeare’s plays, are available as eBooks or eAudiobooks from BC’s Library to Go, Ebsco eAudiobooks, and TumbleReadables. For authoritative, in-depth analysis of the same titles, Gale Virtual Reference Library’s Novels for Students includes author biographies, plot summaries, and evaluation of characters, themes, style, historical

context and more. BC’s Library to Go offers similar but more concise literary criticism in Cliff’s Notes. Another useful component of Gale Virtual Reference is its World Religions Reference Library, a thorough, objective resource covering the history, traditions, and world views of

dominant and also less prominent religions and their sects and offshoots. Entries are accompanied by maps, paintings, and photographs and can be downloaded in MP3 audio format or translated into 12 different languages. In addition to an impressive collection of specialized encyclo-

pedia articles, bilingual dictionaries, quotations, and illustrations, Oxford Reference Online offers a range of timelines illustrating everything from ancient Greece and early America to art, architecture, sporting heroes, science, technology, and medicine. It also includes hundreds of country, province, state, and city

maps, as well as an assortment of dictionaries covering diverse topics like archeology, zoology, world history, saints, law, the Internet, animal behaviour, genetics, place names, Celtic mythology, and the weather. The same World Book Encyclopedia you can find on the library shelves is available online with a number of enhancements, including a student research skills section that outlines how to plan and conduct research, evaluate sources, compile, and organize data and present information in a clear and concise way. Other resources boasting similarly broad coverage for a full range of grade levels include Funk & Wagnall’s New World Encyclopedia, Kids Search, Searchasaurus, and also magazine and journal article databases like Primary Search, Middle Search Plus, and Academic Search Premier. Many of these provide lexile ratings, which are indicators of age/grade suitability.

Sports Morrison unshaken The irony of recent rumblings near the Queen Charlotte Islands was not lost on Brendan Morrison. The 4.6 magnitude earthquake that struck Aug. 18 was felt in Tofino, where the Pitt Meadows native maintains a home. “I talked to my neighbours and they felt it, but there was no damage,” the former Canuck recalled Tuesday. “We’re all good.” As for Morrison, there was more damage to his battered body last NHL season when the Calgary Flames centre suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear March 2 in Chicago. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Athletes In Kind

Kids running, raising money for others Two girls from Pitt Meadows were given the Jan Saunders Memorial award. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Elise Muller is running. She’s running for children battling cancer, she’s running for excercise, and she’s running for fun. As part of the club Athletes In Kind, Elise and a bunch of kids in the Pitt Meadows Elementary Kilometre Club came up with some different ideas to earn money for the running club, which donates to families with children battling cancer. Elise decided to make home-made soaps. On her ninth birthday she received a soap-making kit, which sparked the idea. Her soap-making fundraiser has earned more than $100 so far, and she’s not stopping there. “We were going to come up with a different idea this year but the soaps are so popular,” said mom Lorie Muller, who is founder of AIK. Elise’s idea and hard work won her a very special award this year– the Jan Saunders Memorial award, which she shared with running-mate Gracie

Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Elise Muller showed off her handmade soaps at Verde Flowers in Osprey Village, which she is using to raise money for kids with cancer. Meanwhile, Gracie Lorenson and Muller (inset) with their shared Jan Saunders Memorial award. Lorenson. “The award is for outstanding kids. We want kids to be inspired and to inspire others,” said Lorie. But what makes this award even more special is that Jan Saunders was Elise’s grandmother. “I was really excited as soon as I heard my name. I was thinking, what the...?” Elise said. “Jan Saunders had cancer and was an amazing woman who died in 1993,” said Lorie. In 2003, Lorie competed

in the Ironman Canada competion. During the 14 hours she was running, she started planning. “I had a lot of time to think about how I could make [running and competing] more meaningful,” said Lorie. “My mom was the inspiration behind AIK.” Lorie said that she and her husband were unsure about awarding their daughter with the award, but they know that Elise deserved it. “She did this all on her

own,” Lorie said. Two Osprey Village shops are on board to support AIK as well. “Anahi and Dylan English [Stomping Grounds owners] and Joanne Lethbridge [Verde Flowers owner] are very supportive of Athletes in Kind and of promoting healthy lives,” said Lorie. AIK’s primary purpose is to raise money. However, in order to do this it also encourages children to get

involved with its running groups. AIK has three running clubs, two of which are aimed at children – the Km (Kilometre) Club and the Race Team. The Km Club has been a primary program of AIK since the organization started in 2005. It provides a running program for kids in elementary school. The students receive positive encouragement for running, giving, and learning what it means to be healthy, active, and care for other. The kids are encouraged to give a small donation, about a loonie or two each week, of their own earned money, which helps them understand charity and what it means to be part of something normally only adults do, and to adopt the program as their own. The Race Team has grown from the Km Club and is for kids in Grades 6 and 7. These team members learn the important skills of mentoring, team building, and giving of themselves in a positive healthy lifestyle. Contact Lorie at lorie@ athletesinkind.com.

Knights battled to a five win, two loss last weekend

Football action for local boys was on last weekend. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

On Saturday, the Knights atom gold team forfeited its game to Chilliwack as it did not have enough players. The players that

did show up displayed great spirit and a friendly scrimmage was played using some of the Chillwack players and the kids had a great time. The atom blue Knights suffered their first loss of the season in Mission. Spirits were high, and the boys played hard throughout the game, but they were outsized, and unable to slow the

attacking Niner defence. Knights quarterback, Cody Hogarth, full-back Riley Celino, and tight-end Riley Rooney saw some positive yards, but the Mission team quickly adapted keeping the Knights out of the end zone. Linebackers Dallas Pattenden and Ciaran Davies, and cornerback Nicho Zolliker made a num-

HERBACH - Laura Katherine April 13, 1925 - August 30, 2011 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Laura passed away peacefully, in Ridge Meadows Hospital, with family at her side, after a difficult and painful two month battle with numerous illnesses and health problems. She fought hard to stay with us, but in the end her body was too weak to keep fighting. Laura was a hard worker her whole life and always put all her effort in everything she did. She loved to knit and crochet and made many beautiful things for family and friends through the years, till arthritis prevented her from continuing. In her later years she loved to be in her garden, tending her beautiful flowers, or in her kitchen, baking up treats for everyone. She treasured time spent with family and her very dear friends, Margaret and Arnie Stewart. Laura was predeceased by her grandson, Ryan and her husband, Pius. She will be greatly missed by her children Barbara (Mark), Rob (Betsy), James and Doreen (Mark), her grandchildren, Michael, Jeremy, Melanie, Seamus, Laura and Aidan as well as many extended family members and friends. Laura touched the lives of many in her 86 years on earth, and her passing has left a void in our family that no one else will ever be able to fill. You’ll be in our thoughts and hearts forever, Mom.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on relationships, through late October. You’ll feel romantic, brave, adventurous – this helps you meet exciting new contacts, love prospects, and business or monetary opportunities. But it can also propel you to quarrel, make unwanted advances, or be a little too rough with a loved one or children. (All this to Nov. 10.) So use a light touch – your “vibrancy” will come through. You could meet true love. Tackle routine chores Sunday/Monday. Relationships intensify Tuesday-Thursday: one bond breaks, another forms. Wisdom, love, travel Friday night onward! Taurus April 20-May 20: Sunday/Monday gives you one last taste of pleasure, poetry and romance, as you enter a month of hard work. (You’re a slow starter but a great worker, accomplisher.) Tuesday/ Wednesday bring a real taste of that work. Knuckle down; ignore the temptation to daydream. Your nights might hold strange, deep, muffled dreams, about alienation or relationship difficulties. (If you work the graveyard shift, these might be actual relationship or work – computer? – problems. Proceed cautiously.) The world offers new meetings, new horizons Thursday/Friday. Saturday holds mysteries – research! Gemini May 21-June 20: The past few weeks brought endings, perhaps one big (and believe it or not, lucky) one. These endings somehow will lead to better horizons in love, mating, general opportunity, relocation and dealings with the public. Though Saturday contains a hint of these, they won’t arrive “full bodied” until June 2012 through July 2013. Meanwhile, you’ll still receive a “boost” from these endings – relief, freedom of spirit, etc. Spend the next eight months healing,getting square with governments (e.g., taxes) being charitable, and seeking spirit. A hint of those new horizons appears Saturday.

You’ll get along well with others, domestic situation, children, property, garden, your especially a spouse or business associates. You could soul, stomach … and give you a mild hibernating meet a potent lover in a group setting (anything from experience. Some relationships, projects and double dating to a political convention). The more situations will end, others begin: prune the stale, you mingle socially, the more chance you’ll meet nurture potential. Your money heats up through early someone intriguing. Normally anyone you meet in November – avoid impulsive spending. More will the next six weeks (or did, last week) would make come in, but much more can go out, unless you’re a splendid partner. But this year promotes deeply careful. Sunday/Monday are abrupt, unpredictable: sexual, not necessarily faithful, bonds.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on your career over the month ahead. Not everything will be easy here, as Sunday to Wednesday show. Sunday/ Monday provoke abrupt, unpredictable events in your career zone, while Tuesday/Wednesday lead to calmer waters. (But you sense, correctly, that there is a big need for change beneath those calming surfaces.) By October 2012, all this career pressure will end, but until then, don’t quit your job unless you have a better one “in hand.” Your mood lightens, and a wee wish could come true, Thursday/Friday. A flirtation could surprise you. Retreat, rest Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Relationships intensify until early November – whether it’s love or hate, you’ll do plenty of talking, writing. The stakes might be your lifestyle, assets, sexual “health” – as November to July 2012 will show. For a few weeks ahead, your “opinion” remains mellow, wise and understanding. Love could blossom. Legal, intellectual, far travel, cultural and educational themes envelope you. Happiness is possible! But tread carefully in legal waters midweek: don’t hide anything. Career important Thursday/Friday. Popularity, social joys, light romance visit you Friday night, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Relationships hold some surprises Sunday/Monday, especially in money and sexual areas. It’s not the best time to seek cooperation. The month ahead focuses on big finances, secrets, lifestyle, health diagnoses, sexual urgings and intimacy, research, changes, commitments and consequences. These themes are very apparent Monday night to Wednesday eve – proceed carefully, as some hidden barriers exist (again mostly barriers to co-operation) but so do some sweet successes. Gentle love and understanding flow over you Thursday/Friday. Be ambitious, mix with power people Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
