Dime comic books worth thousands

A Maple Ridge resident’s love of comics spans decades. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Years ago, Rick Bergstrom’s son and daughter were rummaging through the basement of the family home when they came across cardboard boxes filled with his old comic books. “My children came up and said, ‘Dad, you’d never guess what we found! Comics!’ That started it all over again,” Bergstrom recalled. The siblings’ discovery rekindled their dad’s zeal for Batman, Captain America, and their super-powered brethren, and these days, the Maple Ridge resident possesses comics from a cornucopia of genres and eras. “I had no idea how much they had escalated in prices,” Bergstrom said. Bergstrom, a real-life “Comic Guy” minus the ponytail and protruding belly of the nerdy Simpsons animated character, adds yet another new dimension to the Greater Vancouver Toy and Collectibles Show, taking place this Sunday at the Pitt Meadows Heritage Rec Hall, 12460 Harris Road. The Oct. 23 show spotlights diecast, action figures, dolls, trains, sports cards, and, of course, comic books, which

Show ‘family affair’ The Greater Vancouver Toy and Collectibles Show has been hosted by Rick Tippe and Rick Baker for the past eight-and-ahalf years. “It’s a lot of work to put the shows together, but they are also a lot of fun,” Tippe said. Children 12 and under get in free and receive a new Hot Wheels car, and everyone who attends has a chance to win

raffle prizes. Tippe called collecting a great social activity that gets the kids – and adults – away from their computers, cellphones, and other electronic devices for a bit. “Our show is a real family affair,” Tippe said, “not only with our attendees but all of us that work to put it on.” Sunday’s show starts at 9 a.m. at the hall in Pitt Meadows.

Road safety

Police, ICBC ask drivers to slow down Police see a lot of impatient commuters in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Fender benders in rush hour traffic are often caused by impatient commuters. This is the most common problem the traffic enforcement section of the Ridge Meadows RCMP deals with, according to Cpl. Dale Somerville, officer in charge of traffic enforcement. Since most residents leave Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for work every day, there are a lot of people in rush hour, impatient to get home. “People need to learn to share the road… this aggressive driving is causing crashes,” Somerville said. While many of the accidents in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are smaller crashes like fender benders, they still tax local police resources. ICBC launched an awareness campaign on Tuesday to warn drivers about wet roads this fall and winter at the Justice Institute’s driver training facility at the Pitt Meadows Airport. ICBC invited community members to test out a slippery track at the Pitt Meadows Airport on Tuesday morning. The weather was warm and sunny, so a truck sprayed the track to imitate slippery conditions. The drivers were asked to speed along the track and were given a last-second signal to yield so they could test the control of their car on a slippery road at a high speed. Road safety is three-fold,

Somerville pointed out. The city takes care of road engineering, the police take care of enforcement, and ICBC handles the education aspect of it. But the goal for all three is the same: to reduce road crashes. “There is nothing an officer dreads more than contacting a family to tell them about the death of a love one as a result of a crash,” said Superintendent Mike Diack, RCMP E-Division Traffic Services. Dewdney and Lougheed, Harris and Lougheed, and Kennedy and Lougheed continue to be the highest crash intersections in the community, Somerville said. But the Haney Bypass and Lougheed is becoming a worse problem. Complaints are also pouring in from residents about 132nd Avenue between 216th and 232nd streets, Shady Lane, Harris Road in front of Pitt Meadows Elementary, and Airport Way telling stories of commuters cutting through neighbourhoods, said Somerville. The message Jill Blacklock, who is ICBC road safety program

delivery manager, would like to convey to the driving public is that “when you slow down, you see more of the road.” “The difference in speed makes a difference in your ability to control the vehicle,” she added. Speed limits on roads are set for “ideal conditions,” she said, but in winter when it’s wet, dark, and icy, drivers need to adapt their driving. This includes planning ahead, leaving more time to get to one’s destination, and more space between cars. In September, Ridge Meadows RCMP handed out 80 tickets for drivers who were jumping the queue on the new dedicated bus lane at the east side of the Pitt River Bridge. “These are people who can’t wait their turn,” Somerville said. The fine for using the bus lane is $109. Somerville pointed out that road fatalities in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are down significantly this year. In 2010, there were nine road fatalities, and this year there have only been two so far.

ICBC organized a road safety event at the Pitt Meadows Airport to highlight the difficulty of controlling a vehicle in wet weather.

Vancouver-based Glacier Media Inc. is buying the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows TIMES from Postmedia Network Inc. On Tuesday, Postmedia announced a definitive agreement to sell daily newspapers the Victoria Times Colonist, Nanaimo Daily News, and Alberni Valley Times and its B.C. community newspaper properties – including the TIMES – to Glacier Media Inc. for $86.5 million. “We are pleased to announce a transaction that realizes the value of the community newspaper groups in Western Canada, along with the Times Colonist, a newspaper with a proud 153-year history,” said Paul Godfrey, Postmedia president and CEO. The acquisition was the result of an unsolicited offer for the Vancouver Island newspapers and Lower Mainland B.C. community newspaper properties. Included in the transaction are three daily newspapers and 20 weekly and biweekly community publications. In the Lower Mainland, that includes community newspapers from the North Shore News to the Chilliwack Times, including the Abbotsford-Mission Times, Coquitlam Now, and Langley Advance. The deal does not include Postmedia’s Vancouver daily newspapers, the Vancouver Sun and The Province. For the TIMES, it’s business as usual, said publisher Ryan McAdams: “We look forward to a bright future with Glacier Media; the TIMES will continue to deliver the best community news coverage and strive for exceptional customer service with all aspects of our business in the community.” The deal is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close on or about Nov. 30, 2011.

A teen with autism was visiting the Zajac Ranch for Fall Family Camp last weekend.

by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

David Stevenson is a man of few words, but he knows what he likes – and that’s the Zajac Ranch for Children. David, 16, has camped at Zajac Ranch more times than he can remember. “Lots of times, four summer camps, and I’ve lost track of how many family camps,” said the Grade 11 Pitt Meadows Secondary student. Each year, Zajac Ranch, which is near Stave Lake in Mission, hosts hundreds of children and young adults with serious and chronic illnesses and disabilities who might not otherwise have a chance to enjoy a summer camp experience. Some of the campers need dialysis, others have autism like David, and some have physical challenges that keep them at home while other kids are outside having fun. “I love it here,” said David’s mom Diane. “For David, I don’t think

he would have a good time at a regular camp. Here at Zajac he will have all his needs met,” explained Diane. The ranch gives young people with special needs a chance to make friends, to try new things, and above all, to have fun. “They are really good with the kids, they know

when to push, and when to back off,” Diane said. According to Zajac Ranch president Carmen Zajac, a summer camp experience is a rite of passage for all children. “Realizing they can do things, without mom or dad, is very empowering for our campers – and their parents too,” said Zajac. “Camp

gives all children the opportunity to play and have fun. It’s the chance to escape the stresses and strains of living with a medical condition.” David and his parents attended Fall Family Camp last weekend. Summer camps are for the kids, but the fall camp was for the whole family. The weekend camp was full of David’s favourite activities like archery, swimming, and arts and crafts. The Palomino is the cabin David likes to stay in the most “because it’s close to the dining hall,” David said. “The people who cook here do awesome meals,” said dad Bill. “David’s a picky eater but he doesn’t go hungry here,” he added. Steve is David’s favourite councillor here at Zajac Ranch. “He’s good at playing instruments, he can play almost anything. He led us in a cool campfire last night playing his guitar.” For more information visit www.zajacranch.com.

Death on West Coast tracks

Police are not releasing any further information about an incident on the CPR tracks in Maple Ridge.

Copper thieves strike at local schools

Two Maple Ridge schools were hit by copper thieves. In separate incidents, the roof drains were stolen causing water damage inside the schools, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. During the Thanksgiving long weekend, between Friday, Oct. 7 and Tuesday, Oct. 11 thieves climbed up onto the roof of Glenwood Elementary and stole copper drains from the roof. This caused a water leak, which is leading to thousands of dollars damage to the inside of the school, Dunlop said. Between Friday, Oct. 14, and Monday, Oct. 17, thieves again climbed to a roof, this time at Maple Ridge Secondary Annex, and stole the copper drain scuppers. This also resulted in water damage.

Due to the incident the fourth and fifth trains were held up just outside of the station for about 40 minutes, said TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie. “The incident took place at approximately 6:25 p.m. At 7:05 p.m. the passengers were allowed off train four and loaded onto buses to complete their trips,” explained Hardie. Train five was terminated at Maple Meadows Station and a Cpl. Alanna Dunlop bus bridge took passengers the rest of the way to Port Haney Ridge Meadows RCMP and Mission.

It’s the eighth year Ghost Ridge is running, and this year’s theme is about a writer going crazy. The fundraiser, with ghoulish Halloween-style horror, is set to open this Friday night. The four groups building and running Ghost Ridge will benefit from the profits. This year, they are the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Agricultural Association that runs Country Fest, the Society for Creative Anachronism, Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club, and Ridge Meadows Roller Derby. In addition, the 1st Yennadon Scout Group Ventures will be selling cotton candy from 5-9 p.m. at Ghost Ridge. All proceeds will go to fund their Scout activities and camps. To a large extent, Ghost Ridge is wheelchair accessible. Poison Pen: Writings of

Our View

Voter apathy not fair play Acclamations in local-level election campaigns can mean a lot of different things. For instance, when the two Pitt Meadows school board seats are filled by acclamation, it could mean that the community is so satisfied with the work that has been done at the board table that there is no desire to change the status quo. Or, when those acclamations are considered in tandem with the abysmally low voter turnout the community rallied to the polls last time out, it could just be a further reflection of the apathy that seems to be swallowing democracy, right across the country. Only 22.7 per cent of eligible Pitt Meadows voters bothered to cast ballots in the 2008 municipal elections. That’s barely more than one in five. Think about that – if you look at five houses across the street, the occupants of four of them didn’t make the effort to exercise their right to influence their future and the future of their children. If your neighbours looked across the street, would you be the one who cared – or one of the four who didn’t. Maple Ridge fared little better, with less than 30 per cent of eligible voters exercising a right that people in other parts of the world are risking imprisonment, injury, or death for. Today. People are risking being shot or beaten, just to make their voices heard. People in the Middle East and elsewhere consider the concept of democracy so dear that they are putting their very lives in harm’s way to accomplish it. Just as our forefathers did. Those people look to us – they see what we have – and they want it. And we respond with acclamations and depressingly low voter turnouts. Apathy is not fair to those who fight for what we have. And it’s not fair to those here who still care. – B.G.

Metal theft

Cameras could deter thieves Why not place surveillance cameras that will show the faces of those bringing in scrap metal? Names and addresses are or should be shown, too, of course. Could this perhaps help stop the thefts that are going down pretty much all the time? To just let things continue as it is, some buyers of scrap metal could be considered as being in a sort of partnership with thieves. Thieves can only operate as long as

there are fences willing to buy what comes in the door from their “partners.” Surveillance cameras may not stop this nonsense entirely, but could it help? I suppose thieves and their accomplice scrap dealers may well find a way around the bylaw and cameras trying to put a stop to this sorry state of affairs. A bylaw with some real teeth in it so that they won’t be able weasle their way out of the charge would be wonderful. Surely we have to try something.

Robert W. Stirling, Maple Ridge

Traffic design

Safe roads need to be part of plan Dear Editor,

As I read articles about the $2.5-million contract to smooth the asphalt on the Haney Bypass, I felt a familiar sinking feeling. What improvement will we get? A wider shoulder, ahem, “bike lane?” Maple Ridge is no longer a small town. Safe access for pedestrians and cyclists as well as vehicle users

must be a major consideration in Maple Ridge’s design practises and business plans. It should be a protocol in our strategic planning, a given in every five-year civic business plan, built in to the overall long-term goals for maintaining livability, sustainable growth, and reduction of the carbon footprint of the District of Maple

Economy

Wages earned by worth

Dear Editor,

Companies that cut costs by using cheaper wages overseas are able to offer products for cheaper prices. I like the idea of paying less for better and better products. If those earning minimum wage should be paid more money, it should mean those companies will then produce more products overseas. A company cannot pay more money because “it is the right thing,” and compete in a global world. To justify it by implying profits are too high or management should get less is simplistic. We have a worldwide surplus of unskilled labour competing with one another. The only way unskilled workers can justify increased wages is to increase their worth to the person paying them money. We have a shortage of skilled workers. Ambitious and skilled people earn more because they are worth more. While many people have made bad choices in early life or have limitations in their ability to increase their education or motivation, most people can make efforts to complain less and work at self-improvement. Dan Banov, Whonnock

Ridge. Along the Haney bypass corridor, the city planned densely populated communities that elegantly triangulate with the West Coast Express/Port Haney area, the downtown core, and Kanaka Creek Regional Park. Unfortunately, the Haney bypass acts as a barrier for pedestrians and cyclist. The numerous fatalities on this road, sadly, prove it. Residents of 132nd Avenue, Shady Lane, and River Road are all justifiably afraid to venture past their front doors because of increasing traffic pressures that have reached intolerable limits on their little local roads. Sadly, again, fatalities have proved that point. Whether it is $2.5 million or $25 million, it is time for holistic solutions to be incorporated into infrastructure, so the benefits will be relevant to the community. People need to to access their own neighbours and community without it being a suicidal attempt.

Drugs

Prohibition lessons never learned Dear Editor,

I couldn’t possibly agree more with Wayne Clark’s viewpoint on the “War on Drugs” [Obscene profits fuel drugs, Oct. 13 Letters, TIMES]. Border fences won’t work – in fact, that is a laughable concept. Busting renewable street drug dealers won’t work. They are simply and immediately replaced. Criminalizing sick people won’t work. They are addicts, and that is a medical, not a criminal issue. The current policy penalizes victims, including the street-level dealers who are trying to make a living. None of them have billions in their basements, and when we bust them, they are replaced. This multi-billion dollar industry doesn’t only serve the drug traders. I think it also serves the anti-drug industry. If the drug trade were to disappear tomorrow, how many lawyers, DEA officers, police, judges, advocacy groups,

customs officers, even sniffer dogs would be laid off? We are talking about folks who will buy a Lear jet for a million or more dollars, load it with drugs, and crash it after only one use, to hide their crime. Yet our answer is to seize a couple of hundred dollars worth of ancient Ford pickups at the Mexican border. It may be political PR, and looks good on the 11 o’clock news, but it does nothing to solve the problem. But I guess, as Wayne points out, we have learned nothing from prohibition and its dismal failures almost 100 years ago. We can’t legislate morality! Big Brother probably shouldn’t be in that business anyway.

Greg Wilmot, Pitt Meadows

Beveridge fields a lot of inquiries about his musical theatre programs, but often no follow-up, and he suspects that is because of the cost of the program. “I know that not every family has $120 a month to invest in a music program,” Beveridge said. The Arts Angels program is an access program that provides free performance tickets and subsidies for arts programs for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate. The fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Customers will pay $10 for any breakfast offered and a cup of coffee and the owners will give $5 from the breakfast to the Arts Angels program.

Bank serves Ridge for 100 years Jean Hampton called staff she worked with for 42 years “a big family.” by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Haney residents have been banking locally for 100 years. To ensure the Bank of Montreal ran smoothly for 42 of those years, Jean Hampton, of the pioneer farming Hampton family, assisted the bank manager. Hampton was at the BMO Haney branch on Friday to help them celebrate their 100th birthday, along with staff dressed in period costumes. Hampton said she had a lot of good

times working at the bank. Her title when she started – shortly after graduating from Maple Ridge High – was as a stenographer and by the time she retired in 1989 she was a word processor, as computers were quickly taking over the banking world. “It was like a big family,” Hampton said of the staff at the Bank of Montreal. She still gets together monthly with about 10 of her former co-workers. The first Haney branch of the Bank of Montreal opened on Oct. 16, 1911. The original building is now the Billy Miner Pub and Alehouse. After a fire ripped through the neighbourhood in 1932, a lot of businesses including the bank moved up the hill to Lougheed Highway, to the area that was becoming the central business hub of Maple Ridge.

DISMISSING A DISABLED EMPLOYEE

Can you replace an employee who becomes disabled and can’t return to work? Dismissing a disabled employee is a difficult issue. In general, any employee can be let go without cause if given reasonable notice of the termination or severance pay instead. But if the employee can no longer work because of a disability which appears to be permanent, then the employment contract may be said to be “frustrated,” and you may be able to dismiss the employee without giving notice or severance. Consider the case of Janice D. She had worked for 19 years at a desk job when she injured her right elbow in an unrelated fall. Off work for 20 months on disability, she was expected to be off for another seven months. Her boss decided to let her go and offered 12 months’ severance pay, topping up what she would have received in disability payments. Her long-term disability coverage ended two years after kicking in, and she sued her employer for wrongful dismissal, claiming 16 to 18 months’ pay in damages. The BC Supreme Court found that the 20-month absence put her disability into the “permanent” category (at the trial, five years after she was let go, no evidence was presented that she could work). Her absence was “one of sufficient duration… to make the further performance of the employee’s obligations under the contract of employment either impossible or radically different from those contemplated by the agreed terms of employment.” However, it’s rare for an employer to win a dismissal case on the basis of “frustration” due to an employee’s illness. Several cases suggest that if a disability benefits plan is offered at work, then the employment contract can’t be frustrated, because you’ve contemplated the potential disability of the employee. You must be reasonable when determining if an employee on medical leave is likely to return to work. A lumber mill was liable for 12 months’ pay in lieu of notice after hiring someone to replace the plaintiff,

who took 16 months off work to recover from a car accident. While the plaintiff’s disability was of a considerable duration, other employees had returned to work after a year off sick, and the employer should have asked the plaintiff if he intended to return to work before replacing him. You must also be careful that a termination doesn’t affect the employee’s entitlement to long-term disability benefits. Most disability plans won’t cover an employee who isn’t actively employed at the time of the claim for disability. Firing the employee before they start receiving long-term disability could make you liable for all the benefits the employee loses. Consider too BC’s Human Rights Code. Even if you give reasonable notice or pay in lieu, this won’t help if you’ve discriminated against the employee on the basis of a disability. You have a duty to “accommodate” a disabled employee, e.g., by allowing the employee time off for physiotherapy. But you can be excused if the level of accommodation needed would result in “undue hardship” to you or endanger the safety of others. The Supreme Court of Canada has said that work is a fundamental aspect of a person’s life, providing not only financial support but a sense of self-worth too. Employers should consult their lawyer if considering dismissing a disabled employee. And any employee who feels they have been wrongfully fired should see their lawyer too.

Time for pumpkins to rule

D

Pumpkin puree from scratch

on’t you just love the autumn harvest?

(not from a can)

The feeling of a crisp breeze in the air, the sound and sight of rustling leaves in a rainbow of colours, and a plentiful array of gourds, squash, and pumpkins available at the produce counter! Pumpkins are obviously one of the more popular harvests this time of the year. Walking through suburban neighbourhoods on Halloween night and gazing at all the eerily lit creations sitting in windows and on front porches can make one hungry – well, at least for me! I feel that pumpkin as a food is quite neglected in our everyday diets. So, in the spirit of Halloween, I have decided to share a couple of recipes with you, to make use of all the fresh pumpkins available right now.

Since pumpkins are very inexpensive, this is very economical.

You’ll need:

On Cooking

1 fresh whole pumpkin

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 2. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds and scrape out the stringy pulp. Place the cut sides down on a baking sheet and bake until the flesh is very tender, approximately one hour. 3. Let cool until safe enough to handle. Spoon the cooked flesh off the skin and into a food processor, in batches. Puree each batch until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. 4. Transfer the puree to a large fine wire mesh strainer set over a bowl, cover, and let drain in the refrigerator overnight. Discard the liquid, and use the drained puree in any fashion that you would with canned.

by Chef Dez

Pumpkin Wedge Dessert You’ll need:

1.2 kg of raw pumpkin ¼ cup brandy ¼ cup apple juice ¼ cup dark brown sugar ½ tsp ground cinnamon 1/8 tsp ground ginger 1/8 tsp ground cloves 1/8 tsp ground allspice

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg 1/8 tsp salt 1 - 250g package cream cheese, room temperature ½ cup dark corn syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract Zest of 2 lemons, finely grated or chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 2. Remove seeds and stringy pulp from the pumpkin. Cut the pumpkin into 8 to 12

equal chunks. Make cuts in the flesh of the pumpkin every half inch, without cutting the skin, and then every half inch, to make a “cross-hatch” design in the flesh. 3. Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and salt together. Spoon/spread this mixture evenly over the flesh of the pumpkin pieces. 4. Pour the brandy and apple juice in a covered oven-safe dish big enough to accommodate the pumpkin pieces in a single layer. Add the pumpkin pieces skin side down. Cover and bake for approximately 70 minutes until tender. 5. While the pumpkin is baking, beat the room temperature cream cheese until smooth and then add the corn syrup, vanilla and zest. Mix well and set aside. 6. Remove the baked pumpkin pieces and plate them individually. Pour the residual liquid from the baking dish into a small sauce pan and reduce by half to three quarters over high heat until syrupy. 7. Distribute an equal amount of the cream cheese mixture on each pumpkin piece. Drizzle with the liquid reduction and serve immediately.

IT’S BIG AND IT’S BACK. RECYCLE YOUR RIDE IS ALL ACROSS CANADA.

ONLY FOR A LIMITED TIME. ONLY AT YOUR FORD STORE.

At Ford we believe in the power of recycling. That’s why our Recycle Your Ride program is back across the entire country. Already over 50,000 Canadians have recycled their ride with Ford since 2009. That’s enough vehicles to circle the globe twice. And the program has also eliminated approximately 474,308 metric tonnes of smog-forming emissions, equal to 260,000 full garbage bags. And now, in an effort to recycle even more, the program has been expanded to include any 2005 model or older. So even more people can receive up to $3000* in incentives to use towards purchasing or leasing our smartest, safest and fuel-efficient Ford vehicles. Like the Focus, Fusion, and F-150. Even the award-winning Fiesta and Edge.

If it’s time to recycle your ride, just visit any Ford Store across the country. But hurry, because Recycle Your Ride is only back for a limited time. For more details visit ford.ca today.

Two Maple Ridge graduates play on the Clan team. Martin Duckhorn and Daniel Martin. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Football teams still going strong

The Knights football teams won five of the seven games they played over the weekend. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Peewee gold defeated the Abbotsford white Falcons 8-6 to extend their winning streak to six games. Abbotsford opened the scoring in the second quarter but were shut down for the remainder of the game by a tough Knights’ defence led by Jaydeep Sachar and Dryden Pollon. With under three minutes remaining in the game the Knights had the ball on their own 20-yard line trailing 6-0. Behind the strong blocking of Jacob Gordon, William Bartolo, and Timothy Janke the Knights drove the ball down the field and Cade Cote scored with 30 seconds left in the game to tie the score. Brayden Hamilton’s kick for the two extra points was the difference in the game. With the win the gold Knights have clinched a playoff spot and host the Mission 9ers on Saturday. The atom blue Knights extended their winning streak to three games, knocking off the Chilliwack Blue Giants 45-6. In a dominant defensive stand, Lucas Deane made two consecutive backfield tackles while relentless pressure from Dallas Pattenden and Dominick Hawke gave Jaxon Smart the chance to recover his first fumble of the year. Ethan Holland and William Ferguson anchored the offensive line which kept the Giant’s defence at bay and allowed quarterback, Cody Hogarth to complete his first touchdown pass of the season to Ciaran Davies. Tight-end Nicho Zolliker and full-back, Riley Celino

The defence was led by Tyson Phare, Evan Love, Brandon Goodbridge, and Tyson Caughy, who shut down the Chilliwack offence from scoring in the second half.

played well on defence but couldn’t stop the Giants running game. Tyler Spencer, Liam TeBoekhorst, and Brandon Hunt played a good offensive game but could only muster up one touchdown. The junior bantam team remained undefeated after beating North Langley 58-0. The team played a wellrounded game that saw scoring from all three parts; offence, defence, and special teams. Offensively Drake Kindred, Thomas Janke, Tessai Soudarak, and Haydon Barton played well. Defensively Trent Cooper returned from injury, while Mark Podshadly, Justin Fedorak, and Dexter Stewart all made an impact.

Special teams were really the highlight as the Knights were a perfect seven out of seven on point-after-touchdown attempts and returned a punt for a touchdown. The midget team lost 27-14 to Cloverdale. The Knights led 8-7 at half time as Spencer Hambley and Dylan Macdermid were effective in moving the ball against the Cloverdale defence. A couple of mental lapses, including a punt recovery by Cloverdale, cost the Knights the game. Linemen Brock Loewen, Wyatt Durocher, Tyler Cameron, and Travis McCrea put out an outstanding effort for the Knights. In other action, the bantam Knights beat Cloverdale 14-12.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mysteries, depths,secrets and hidden forces begins Sunday. Your subconscious will burst to the surface, to heighten both your intuition and your intimate desires. If you’re undisciplined, you could enter an extramarital affair. Don’t confuse love and lust. This month ahead holds a major change and/or opportunity for you, in lifestyle and finances. These will demand commitment; without it, success will dissolve. Tackle chores early Sunday. Crucial relationships fill the work week: be nimble, co-operative. Big success possible Friday. Love, law, learning Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A month of work and drudgeryends;amonthoffreshhorizons,opportunities, new sights and exciting relationships begins. You might relocate; if so, go big and far – and not before Nov. 10. Sunday’s romantic, creative. OK, I lied: some work and drudgery remains, Monday/Tuesday. Tackle it Tuesday for best results. Crucial relationships spark Wednesday/Thursday – all’s good, but temper or domestic tension could interfere Thursday eve to Friday dawn. After this, Friday is packed with success potentials in intimacy, investments, finances, health – Saturday, too, but milder. Gemini May 21-June 20: A month of work, drudgery, some boredom, and caring for dependents starts now (Sunday). Until Nov. 10, these duties can interfere with your wanderlust, or with your need to read, learn and talk. (The wanderlust, et al, is likely to win.) Be home, rest Sunday. Romance lures Monday/ Tuesday, but even Don Juan would have difficulty with this one: go slow. That work begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday – but successfully, other than a problem driving or communicating (especially late Thursday). New people, new horizons and opportunities excite you Friday/Saturday – chase them!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Sunday starts a month of pleasure, beauty, creativity, romance, self-expression and love for children. You’ll ride a winning streak – a bigger one than usual, as social delights, popularity and wish fulfilment are added to the brew. Major stuff could happen! A co-worker romance is highlighted. Sunday’s for communications, travel and casual acquaintances. Rest Monday/Tuesday, make sure your home/business are secure/grounded, and get your beauty sleep. Wednesday/Thursday spark that romance, pleasure, creativity, et al. Tackle chores – and social/romantic joys – Friday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead feature domestic concerns, real estate, security, business territory, and the foundations or “what you stand on” in any area. (E.g., your education is – usually – the foundation of your career.) You might decide to abandon stale, useless projects or relationships, and to “found” new ones. (This will lead to success, especially in ambitious areas.) Chase money Sunday. News, details, errands, travel and casual friends fill Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings th ose domestic, foundational concerns. Don’t be overbearing (applies to mid-November). Romance winks Friday/ Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday kicks off a month of communications, details, paperwork, travel and errands, news, casual acquaintances and siblings. This year these things (emails, calls, trips, news, etc.) can trigger, or entwine with, some major projects in the same zones, but on a “larger stage.” E.g., communication becomes publishing, details become profound ideas or higher learning, trips expand into international travel, casual friendship grows to love, etc. Wednesday to Friday brings clues – and opportunities. You might give up one life philosophy, and embrace another, this week to next June.

Oct. 23 - 29, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead raise the money stakes. As is usual for late October and November, you’re favoured to chase money, seek a pay raise, enhance your earnings, buy and sell items, and deal with possessions. But this year an added, deeper – and very lucky – level enters, so that possessions become investments, the search for added income could lead to a lucrative business, the attempt to gain new clients could produce a partnership, etc. One flaw: until Nov.10, a partner or someone you really like socially could interfere with, even fight this, causing you to make a hard choice. Tuesday to Saturday highlights all this. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your hopes, sociability and popularity rise Sunday – the very day that kicks off a month of increased energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness. Use this month to the fullest, start important projects, seek favours – seize the day. A slowdown will begin November 23, so don’t waste these intervening weeks. Use Monday/Tuesday to rest, plan, to finish up chores so they don’t interfere with the future. Then charge forth Wednesday to Saturday. Some days bosses will be critical; other days (Saturday) co-operative. Sense their mood, then act accordingly. Big opportunities await! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Slow down. Sunday starts a month of quietude, rest, sweet solitude and contemplation. Use these weeks to plan your future, to handle overdue tasks, to fulfill outstanding obligations, to interact with government and solve tax issues, to deal with charities, to be spiritual and reconnect with the living centre of this world. If you do some of these things, you’ll emerge refreshed and rejuvenated by late November. This influence begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday. A wish is denied Monday, but might come true, quietly, Tuesday. Your energy, luck rise Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sunday begins a month of happiness. popularity, social delights, flirtations, entertainment and wish fulfilment. You are undergoing the deepest change of your life, from 2008 to 2023. The month ahead brings you many clues about this change, its purpose and intended result. Biggest clue: the change will bring about a revolution and grand renewal in everything listed in the first sentence. These clues will be “lit up” by events, joy Wednesday/ Thursday; by “quiet knowing” Friday/Saturday. Until Nov. 10, avoid working secretly toward your goals: it undercuts this fine process. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Sunday brings a month of career and status ambitions, prestige relations, dealings with bosses, parents and authorities. You’ll be under pressure, but you’ll also have excellent opportunities to impress higher-ups, especially this Wednesday to Friday. You might be pulled between two extremes: ambition and security, even between ambition and the desire to quit. Truth is, the desire to quit is luckier than ambition this year (to June 2012). Trying to reconcile these opposites can make you quick-tempered until Nov. 10. Step softly – luck is high. Joy, hope, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The weeks ahead bring relief in the form of gentle understanding, a mellow mood, wisdom and a gentle, compassionate love. You might travel afar, deal with foreign-born people, attend college, publish, meet a “teacher,” or otherwise expand your views. Cultural rituals arise – e.g., weddings, bat mitzvahs. Some of you will decide to wed. These themes are highlighted Wednesday/ Thursday, and an event connected to them can come Friday – with an exhilarating “uplift!” (Be ambitious Friday/Saturday; this will cause the best to happen.) Earlier, embrace a challenging person Sunday. timstephens@shaw.ca
