Video ushers in births Lambs will be at Country Fest. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Brianna Arsenault and Cole Fehr have been giving lots of TLC to four lambs born on Valentine’s Day at Brianna’s grandparents farm.

Hero pushed his way forward first, the strongest and most vocal, followed by Romeo, Loverboy, and Valerie: the four lambs were born on Valentine’s Day on Lorraine Bates’ Thornhill farm. Bates, who’s the general manager of Country Fest, the agricultural fair that takes place on the Albion Fairgrounds in July, was in the barn with her granddaughter Brianna who helped catch the lambs as they were born and named them as they were coming out.

Son tells how father duped his family Ridge Meadows Mounties allege Douglas Clark bilked his wife, sons, and friends. by Elaine O’Connor

The Province

The son of a man accused of bilking dozens of people out of close to $2 million sat across from his father in Port Coquitlam court Tuesday and testified that his father had also conned him out of $50,000. Chris Peter Clark, 37, told the court that his dad, Douglas

Archie Clark, had spent years spinning a web of lies that nearly bankrupted his family, telling his wife and two sons he was an undercover naval officer undergoing experimental cancer treatments he had to pay for in cash. “He was my father and at the time I loved him and trusted him. I wasn’t giving the money just to get the money back… I wanted him to live a long and healthy life,” his son told the court as his father, dressed in a red prison sweat suit, sat across the room. Douglas Clark, 64 now of Burnaby, is accused of scam-

ming 40 people, dating to the 1990s. Ridge Meadows RCMP’s serious crime investigators worked on this case for about threeand-a-half years, finally arresting Clark last June on what the Mounties described as a “very large” fraud investigation. Clark pleaded guilty to nine charges amounting to $420,000. He is now standing trial on four charges of fraud and impersonating an officer of the peace. Prosecutor Gordon Comer said he is seeking about four years of federal jail time.

The local teachers union was at the school district office before daybreak on Valentine’s Day morning delivering 400 heart-shaped messages to staff. When senior staff arrived, they were greeted by pink, red, and purple hearts all bearing a handwritten message from a teacher about improvements they’d like to see in their classrooms, strung up on the trees outside of the Brown Avenue offices There were three over-arching themes in the messages from teachers, said Susan Croll, first vice-president of the Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association. First, they want better and more support for students with special needs; secondly, teachers want respect from the provincial government and for their profession; and thirdly, they want a fairly negotiated collective agreement. Croll and MRTA president George Serra were out putting up the messages early Tuesday, and they want local education senior staff to relay how local teachers feel about the current stalled negotiations.

“I would really like [district staff] to send a message to George Abbott and Christy Clark... to direct BCPSEA to come back to the table and sit down and seriously negotiate,” Croll said. The BC Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers Association started negotiating almost a year ago, and teachers have been working without a contract since September. They are in phase one of job action, which includes refusing to meet with principals and write report cards. Serra said the impetus to put up the Valentine’s hearts was “to make sure the [school] district knows Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows teachers aren’t in any better position.” The provincial government recently appointed a fact finder from the Ministry of Labour to investigate what is happening in the labour dispute. Serra said he would have preferred someone neutral to investigate the situation, from example, a Labour Relations Board mediator. “We’ll participate – we have no choice,” Serra said. He is worried that because contract talks have been stalled for so long, the teachers will see a contract imposed on them. “Any legislation will set us

Imposing a contract on teachers will lead to a lot of “bitter-

ness and acrimony,” Croll said. The hearts were taken down by the early evening, but Serra said they might get delivered elsewhere later.

Let people refuse meters: Ridge council One of two motions on smart meters was approved by council. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge council voted Tuesday evening to ask BC Hydro to allow people to opt out of getting a smart meter installed on their home.

The good life

isn’t complicated. It’s as simple as letting your body move.

$

But a motion to ask for a moratorium on the installations of the meters was defeated with only Councillor Corisa Bell – who had put forward the motion – voting in favour. Several councillors said putting a moratorium on smart meters would mean they’d have to ask for a moratorium on other wireless devices, like the cellphones issued to District employees. Bell had put forward both

motions as she said many Maple Ridge residents have approached her about the issue. Bell cited research into wireless technology that cast in doubt the safety of the technology used by smart meters. This was countered by Coun. Michael Morden who cited several studies including a 10-yearlong Danish study, published in the British Medical Journal, of the use of cellphones – which emit much more electromagnet-

ic radiation than smart meters – showing no ill effects on users. Councillor Al Hogarth said, while he agreed that arguments for and against smart meters are “valid,” the purpose of installing the new meters is to make the system more efficient. “Disruptions have and do cost million if not billions in lost revenue, not to the power producers but to us as consumers,” Hogarth said.

Friends encouraged not to drive after drinking A grassroots movement is taking shape in Maple Ridge.

Story and photo by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

It was little more than a week ago when Connor Schuchard wrote on his Facebook page: “I think we should all start a new FADD. Friends Against Drunk Driving.” He was thinking aloud about a car crash that killed two of his friends – Maple Ridge’s Crystal Weaver and Dawson Spencer. The 18-year-old’s friends started taking note and commenting on his page, encouraging him to “go for it.” He wrote back: “I’m totally down. It needs to be done and I’m trying to trend it on Twitter. Need help.” Fast forward a week, and Connor has amassed a core group of eight to oversee Friends Against Drunk Driving, or FADD, and 2,500 people (and growing) who want to be involved with the grassroots movement. “I was a little shocked that my two friends died, and when I changed my status, it sparked this idea. I didn’t think it was going to blow up the way it has,” Connor explained during a visit to The TIMES with four of the eight people responsible for overseeing the group. Along with Connor, Andy McComb, Jake Cantin, and

Four of the eight FADD organizers Andy McComb, Connor Schuchard, Jake Cantin, and Gabby Kalnich, who are watching the group’s numbers rise daily. Gabby Kalnich have been fielding media calls, applying for naming rights, researching T-shirt prices, reading up on the rules and regulations of becoming a society, and all along grieving the loss of two of their friends. In the early morning hours of Feb. 5, a van being driven by 17-year-old Dawson Spencer, crossed the centre line on Dewdney Trunk Road and crashed into a car in which Crystal Weaver, 18, was a pas-

senger. Both died, and four other teenagers were injured. The two boys in the van with Dawson, Ben Buttignol and James Churton, had serious injuries, but have been released from hospital, said Connor, who added that both teens have encouraged him to “keep up the good work” with FADD. In the car with Crystal were two of her girlfriends, Andrea Sitter and Jessica Small. Andrea was released from hospital, but

Jessica, who was driving the car, remains hospitalized with two broken femurs. Andy McComb said Jessica is doing well, and getting better with each passing day. “She wants to go home,” he said. “Jessica was proud to be a designated driver.” Andy and Crystal went to Blue Mountain Elementary together and they all graduated together in 2011 from Garibaldi Secondary.

“That first week was hard because I saw Crystal on Saturday, but to be part of something positive helps with the healing,” said Andy. “It’s a slow process, but now that we have an official name, we can open a bank account, make a logo, and fundraise. We want to make it worldwide. I have even gotten a comment from South Africa,” explained Connor. “It’s not just teenagers’ comments. We have lots of adult support too,” said Jake, who mentioned that MADD has sent a few encouraging messages to the group as well. “Our message is a different approach than MADD as we are trying to send a message to kids that drinking and driving is uncool and trying to stop it before it happens by using peer pressure and social media,” said Andy. FADD organizers said they have a lot more work to do to reach their ultimate goal, which is to stop drinking and driving all together. In the meantime, they hope to make presentations to school councils to garner more support. The last post on FADD’s Facebook page before presstime reads: “Don’t forget there is a week and a bit left to send in your drawings for our new logo! Email faddbc@gmail.com and be a part of something!”

The grieving mom of a 16-year-old girl who died in a Maple Ridge home after a birthday party is dreading hearing details in court of her death. Julie Raymond’s daughter Shannon was found unresponsive, without a pulse, on July 26, 2008, in the home of Victoria Turley. Turley is charged with failure to provide the necessities of life in connection with Shannon’s death. “The worst is yet to come. I know that,” said Raymond, flanked by daughter Danielle, outside B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster earlier this week. “Shannon did not die peacefully,” Mom said. Inside the courtroom Tuesday, Turley sat quietly in the box as the court heard testimony piecing together the last hours of Shannon’s life. That night Shannon had been drinking at the home of her friend Nicole, who had organized a birthday party aboard a bus. Shannon took two ecstasy pills on the bus. Nicole’s mom, Veronica Geib, testified that Shannon was visibly inebriated when she got off the bus. “I thought she was drunk. She was swaying a bit,” Geib said, noting she dropped Shannon and three other friends at the

Sixteen-year-old Shannon Raymond died at a party July 26, 2008. A photo of Shannon and her sister Danielle graced the table at the Raymond home in 2009, when Daniel and her mother Julie looked through photo albums. Shannon had been sitting, talking, and drinking water earlier. She had been with Shannon in the room, she said, until she went out for a smoke break at around 4:20 a.m. She said she was told Shannon had been drinking and had taken ecstasy. Geib admitted she knew the teens were drinking at her house and on the bus and did nothing to discourage it. She also said she learned that Shannon took two ecstasy pills, but did not inform Turley or Shannon’s mom. “There was a blind-eye policy,” said defence lawyer David Milburn. The trial, which started Monday, is expected to take three weeks.

Rave suspect charged again

A man who will go to trial in September to face charges of producing and distributing child pornography, will be in court on Feb. 27 for ‘failing to abstain.’ by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

A suspect in the 2010 Pitt Meadows rave case was in court again this week, this time for breaching the conditions of his bail. Dennis John Allen Warrington, who is charged with distributing pornography in connection with an alleged rape at a rave at a Harris Road property during September 2010, appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Monday to face a new charge of breaching an undertaking or recognizance. He was arrested on this newest charge on Feb. 6, accused of failing to abstain from alcohol or drugs, and according to

court records his arraignment hearing for that charge has been set for Feb. 27. Warrington is also due in court that same day to face another failure to comply charge dating back to Nov. 12. Warrington was released on $2,500 cash bail on Feb. 8, according to the court registry. Warrington, identified by police as a Langley resident but who grew up in this community, was 19 when he was charged with producing and distributing child pornography in connection with the rave. On that charge, he is set to appear in court again on June 14, with his trial set to run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 5. Also charged in connection to the same alleged attack, is Colton Ashton McMorris, an 18-year-old from Maple Ridge. He’s charged with sexual assault and he is set to go to trial on Feb. 27. A third person, who is from Maple Ridge but cannot be named because he is a juvenile, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of making or publishing obscene matter. The teen was sentenced Friday, Feb. 10 to 12 months probation.

Turley residence. At Turley’s, Shannon seemed “very intoxicated” and was slurring her speech, said Shannon’s friend, Tristan RogersonDolley. At some point, Shannon went into a bedroom where she was heard “sounding like she was sick… to her stomach,” said Rogerson-Dolley, who at the time was in the living room with other teens. She did not see Shannon again, she told the court. At 6 a.m., Victoria Turley called 911. A paramedic testified he arrived to find Shannon lying unconscious on a futon in the basement.

Our View

Bullies need to be curbed again It’s not as if they ever went away, but bullies are back in the news. Again, we’re reminded that, for many kids, going to school is a fearful experience. Whether it’s incessant name-calling, teasing, and verbal torment or outright violence and theft, a huge number of children will experience bullying during their school years. Adults tend to forget the cruelty they and other children were capable of. Homophobic and sexual slurs, sudden punches and kicks, and harassment by social media are all possible for children who aren’t even out of middle school yet. The worst part of bullying isn’t one single attack or incident: it’s the pattern of repeated incidents, which wear down the chosen victim or victims, day after day. School can start to look a lot like prison to a child who’s been bullied repeatedly – sometimes for years. A recent Harris/Decima poll found that 50 per cent of Canadian adults felt they had been bullied as children or teenagers. Nearly a third believed it had a lasting or harmful effect, and a huge majority of adults believe we need to do something about it. Those who have been or are being bullied probably have a number of suggestions. Tying the bullies to anthills in the desert and leaving them there isn’t really legal, however. More practical are mentoring programs, and Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada, which sponsored the recent poll, hopes it can convince more Canadians to join, volunteer, and provide financial support. Making the bullied stronger seems to generally be a better avenue than trying to change bullies. There is no one solution for these children. Not every child can take self-defence courses, and there is no physical solution to ending taunts. For the worst torments, the old saw about telling a teacher probably isn’t enough. For kids being physically attacked, we recommend skipping straight to calling 911. – M.C.

Environment

Flats homes face destruction Dear Editor,

For a long time, on the Albion Flats, on agricultural land owned by SmartCentres, there has been a large billboard urging “More Shopping” on the site. The sign’s continued presence probably operates on the well-established advertising principle that constant repetition breeds acceptance. SmartCentres’ support for Residents for Smart Shopping helped elect almost a full slate of councillors. Now SmartCentre has been advised to re-apply to the Agricultural Land Commission to change the designation of the affected land to commercial, “to finally settle the issue,” and to do so soon, since the next provincial election may change governments. Applications for such a change have been forwarded and turned down for a decade, and it is most unlikely that there will be a change. It would be petty to gloat over looming failure of the application. We can change a negative to a positive. We can urge councillors and others to heed Maple Ridge council’s own 2010 citizens report. Maple Ridge has the unique opportunity to save and enhance what is probably the last such urban ecosystem in the Fraser Valley, and which we can use to showcase the values proclaimed in the citizens report. Unaware of the potential of the land, some have referred to the Flats as being empty, or useless. In fact, that area has more life forms within it than the number of all the people in North America. Anyone who has studied any aspect of the wide range of biological or environmental sciences will confirm that truth. The life forms range from the amoeba, microbes, fungi, and enzymes that decompose vegetative matter to increase soil fertility, to dozens of insect species from sowbugs, aphids, ladybugs, spiders,

and mosquitoes – an important food source for birds and fish – to damsel flies, earthworms, and dozens of insect types that fertilize nearly all flowers and berries; from bee varieties that pollinate all our fruits to more than 22 species of birds that include tiny seed- and insect-eaters, songbirds, ducks, raptors, herons, and even the rare woodland pigeon. The creeks and marshes are necessary spawning grounds for various fish species. I will not attempt to list the many types of indigenous animal, plant, and tree forms. Ecosystems like this form a complex, interdependent web of thousands of living forms whose beauty and complexity still amaze our best scientific minds. For example, the construction principles of a common spiderweb are still studied by experts. A large parking lot with big stores can destroy this jewel forever. A store can be moved and rebuilt, a delicate ecosystem’s destruction is permanent. There are many very knowledgeable individual writers, gardeners, biologists, environmentalists, and groups such as ARMS, KEEPS, the CEED Centre, and colleges and universities that would willingly contribute advice and efforts to enhance both the beauty and environmental value of the Albion Flats. Let’s also use the “environmental technologies” to which the municipal newsletter refers, to build an asset that can be used by all nature-lovers, schools, artists, tourists, and those who need physical, mental, or spiritual refreshment. That will help our claim to be among the most sustainable communities in the world. Let’s walk the walk. Charles Ellman, Maple Ridge

Waste disposal

Move puts end to garbage pickup Dear Editor,

“You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone,” certainly rings true when it comes to garbage pickup in Maple Ridge, compared to Mission. We recently made this

move for reasons other than not liking Mission. We are happy that we didn’t have to move far for what we needed. I was quite surprised by the garbage pickup situation. There is no municipal

Smart meters

Hydro harvesting customers Dear Editor,

A blitzkrieg is underway. But this time, instead of German Panzer tanks, it’s trucks loaded with smart meters. The gang who hijacked BC Hydro are in a panic to get them installed before you know what hit you. Your rates will double or more, your activities can be electronically monitored on an unprecedented scale, and your family just might get sick from an exponential increase in poorly understood microwave frequencies. The smart meter program cannot withstand the scrutiny of the light of day. Question everything, especially BC Hydro’s safety claims and its reliance on Health Canada’s bogus “weight of evidence” research. The program represents a potential risk to human, animal, and environmental health on a spectacular scale. It has not been proven safe. The big advantage that BC Hydro has is our trusting nature. Most of us still think we own BC Hydro and someone will fix this problem for us. We don’t, and they won’t. Wake up. BC Hydro currently owns us, and we’re about to be harvested.

Ron McNutt, Maple Ridge

pickup here. You hire one of six private companies, or take it to the dump yourself. There is a recycling society that provides numerous large bags to separate your recycling, but they don’t pick up glass or yard waste, or food waste. I admit to being one of those people who thought the food waste thing was unreasonable, but I came around by keeping it in the freezer till pickup day. Now, I miss it and the convenience we had in Mission. In the short time we have been here, I’ve noticed one yard where bags of garbage are just tossed into the backyard, and we have not been able to find an adopt-a-block program, but have noticed some messy streets. So, I hope people in Mission take pride in a top-notch system that is not only efficient, but also responsible to the environment. Hopefully, Maple Ridge will move to a more responsible system.

Crane counters sought

The dwindling sandhill crane population in the area has Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather concerned. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Following the environmental footprints of Alouette Field Naturalists founder Wilma Robinson in the 1970s, and then, in the ’90s, Ken Thomson, Michael Sather and others will have their binoculars out during the early morning hours of March 17. A former wildlife biologist, Sather who is now the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA, will lead a group of volunteers as they count sandhill cranes, large birds that reportedly numbered in the thousands in this area when the Katzie First Nation people were its lone inhabitants. Through the years, human habitation, along with intense farming on what was once feral fields ideal for bird habitat has dwindled that number down to approximately 15 in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area, Sather estimated. He started the count in 1999 and on Saturdays during the springtime, has led the group as they monitor the cranes. “It’s a fabulously beautiful bird, that’s why we do it,” Sather said. “I’m very concerned we are going to Ken Thomson photo lose them entirely.” Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather decribed For five consecutive Saturdays running March 17 to April 14, volunteers will be sandhill cranes as “beautiful and charismatic.” out between 6 and 8 a.m. to watch for the Losing animal species also threatens the birds. very biodiversity of the area. “People are situated in different spots,” “When we lose biodiversity, we lose a Sather said.

It wasn’t a fire at Golden Ears Cheeseworks that had a handful of firefighters hard at work in the kitchen on Valentine’s Day. It was Ladies’ Night! Four Vancouver city firefighters hosted a sold-out crowd at a chef-demonstration in Maple Ridge, where they were promoting the 25th anniversary of the Hall of Flame calendar. “We are also here promoting my lime sauce and showing how we cook in the fire hall,” said Henri Persaud, who has a line of bottled sauces that Cheeseworks carries. “It’s pretty much guerrilla-style cooking. The reason I say that, is that at any time the bell could hit and we wouldn’t be back for two hours,” added Persaud.

Police and fire news

Bylaw officers in Maple Ridge are working with the owner of a house that has had three fires since Christmas.

Three days after the first fire, a trailer parked on the property was burned, and was then found abandoned on Dec. 29 by a work crew on Neaves Road in Pitt Meadows. On Jan. 9, fire chief Dane Spence, provided Maple Ridge council with a verbal report on the events of the property, including by Sylver McLaren the fires, and the problems smclaren@mrtimes.com that resulted in the building being deemed uninhabitable A shed attached to the by District staff. back of a house at 21719 “There was a time when 117th Ave. was set ablaze people were coming and early Feb. 10, in what going from the house, so Maple Ridge fire chief at that time we informed Peter Grootendorst is callthe owner that it needed to ing a “suspicious” fire. be boarded up to prevent According to Grootendorst, this is the Peter Grootendorst unauthorized entry,” said Grootendorst. third fire to erupt at the Maple Ridge fire chief The bylaw enforcement same address since Dec. department is dealing with 23. the owner of the house, Jack Athwal, “The first fire was an accidental mattress fire and we do not believe it to have the building repaired and brought up to code, he explained. to be suspicious,” he said.

The man, who is well known to police for stealing, was recognized by an officer viewing the surveillance video, said Dunlop. The Mountie arrested the man two kilometres away from the store on Dewdney Trunk Road at about 10:15 p.m., 45 minutes after the theft took place. The suspect was taken into custody without incident, and the perfume was seized by police.

Senior rescued

A Ridge Meadows Mountie is being credited with coming to the aid of a senior in medical distress on Tuesday, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. At 11:35 a.m. on Feb. 14, she needed help after falling inside her home. RCMP Const. Tony Eeftink was the first responder on scene. No one answered the front door, so he looked around until he found a way in. Paramedics arrived a short time later, and the woman was taken to hospital for treatment. “The woman has a service she can contact that will arrange for emergency services if or when she requires it,” Dunlop said.

Dad told family he was top-secret naval officer …continued from page A1

Chris Clark testified that one night in 1990, when the Pitt Meadows family was running an office-supply business, his father told his family he had a second job as a top secret navy intelligence officer. He also told tales of a large, tax-free military retirement fund. The family business faltered and closed in 1998. With the business gone, Clark’s wife had to sell a farm she inherited. Then the elder Clark told the family he had colon cancer. Between 2005 and 2007, Chris Clark said, he was giving his father up to $600 a week, plus lump sums earned by selling his car, digging into his inheritance and falling behind on his own rent to give him cash for treatments. “I thought, ‘What’s more important, the vehicle I was driving or my dad’s life?’ So I sold my car… and gave all the money to my dad,” Chris recalled. Chris testified he even asked his own friends to help

and one took out an $80,000 loan. He testified his father said he would pay them back once his $1.8-million pension came in. “Something always came up that kept the money from being available,” he said. By 2007, Chris testified, he asked to see proof of the fund. When his father presented a doctored statement, the lies unravelled. His mother moved out and Chris cut off his father and made a police complaint. Outside court, Chris said he Chris Clark didn’t know if he could forgive his father, who he said may have a personality disorder, gambling problem, and love of the high life. “I feel like I was up there to do the right thing today and hopefully just stop him from hurting any more people,” he said. “It’s put a lot of financial and emotional strain on us.” The trial continues.

“I thought, ‘What’s more important, the vehicle I was driving or my dad’s life?’ So I sold my car… and gave all the money to my dad.”

Birthing adds to fair experience ...continued from page A1

It’s only February, but Bates is already thinking about how to improve Country Fest this year, and the lambs will be part of the plan. She hopes to have a large screen where people can watch the birth of the lambs and possibly other animals born this spring next to a pen with the young animals. “You just have to kick it up a notch,” Bates said of the fair’s offerings. The mandate of the fair is to educate people on agriculture, Bates said, and this will allow visitors – many of whom come from outside Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – to learn about what happens on a farm. “Being stagnant is a fool’s paradise,” she said. Last year’s backyard gardens display netted an award from the B.C. Association of Fairs and Exhibitions, and Bates hopes to expand on the program this year. In addition to the honey, composting, and backyard chicken exhibits, she’d like to add information about growing sprouts and mushrooms. She’s also hoping to have a master gardener at the fair to give advice to fairgoers on growing their own food. Bates lives on a seven and a half acre property in east Maple Ridge, and raises her own animals and grows a vegetable garden. While regular farming might not provide a good living, people who get into niche farming can make good money, she said. For Bates, farming allows her to stay healthy and know what’s she’s eating. “We just do it because want to know what’s going in our bodies,” Bates said. Bates had set up webcams to monitor her five ewes that were expecting. But as friends and family started hearing about it, they soon had more than expected followers and more than 500 views.

Call for moratorium rejected ...continued from page A3

Hogarth said with cellphones and other devices, people have personal choice to use them or not, but not smart meters. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie supported allowing people to choose whether to have a smart meter installed or not. “I believe that [BC] Hydro made a business decision and their business decision has impacted people’s civil rights to make a decision on what goes on in their home,” Ashlie said. “And I believe that they have a right to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to having that meter on their house.” But Ashlie said the motion asking for a moratorium on the installation of smart meters was “poorly thought out.” If council asked for a moratorium on the installation of smart meters, they would have to ask for a moratorium on other devices. “We would have to extend the moratorium... [on] anything that we feel could impact anyone who is under our jurisdic-

tion,” Ashlie said. She added that BC Hydro has been “evasive” about letting people know whether they can refuse a smart meter. Coun. Bob Masse said that he doesn’t think the meters are dangerous, but “I do fully respect the opinions of others who do think they’re dangerous,” he added. Mayor Ernie Daykin said passing a motion on a moratorium won’t make a difference. “I’m interesed in passing a resolution that I think will make a difference,” Daykin said. Council will send the letter to BC Hydro about allowing homeowners to refuse the installation of a smart meter this week, Daykin said. Next week, council will also draft up a letter to the premier asking for more public engagement especially with issue like the smart meters. Morden said it’s been predicted that by 2015 there will be 250 million smart meters around the world.

Several audience members who came to hear what Maple Ridge council had to say about smart meters on Tuesday evening had made up signs asking for a ban on smart meters.

eople who wanted to put in a garden bed or path last fall but ran out of time have a second chance now before the growing season really starts. Outlining the shape of the bed is usually the first concern. People generally use a garden hose for tracing shapes. But in cool temperatures rubber hoses are fairly stiff while vinyl hoses are fixated in whatever configuration they had in storage. That’s why a Chilliwack gardener recommends laying hoses out on the pavement in sunshine so that they warm up enough to make an exact shape. Meanwhile, a Vancouver gardener shapes the outline of a garden bed with his lawn mower. If he doesn’t like the result, he tries a different shape at the next mowing. When he finds the perfect outline, he’s ready to grab the spade and begin work. Some of the bestdrained beds are those with builders rubble in the base.

Moisture was also a problem in a Chilliwack garden. The gardener made a pond in the worst wet spot, then dug rock pits in

CONGRATS TO OUR READER! A few years ago my husband, Gord was heading home from work on Valentines Day and all of a sudden remembered what day it was. He headed into the drugstore to pick up a card and a gift so he wasn’t in the dog house. Found a card, To My Wonderful Wife, with a beautiful heart on the front. Feeling pretty good that he hadn’t forgotten headed home. When I opened the card I was a little surprised that inside it said Merry Christmas. Guess he should have actually opened the card before purchasing. We laugh about that every Valentines Day and Gord has never bought another greeting card without reading it.

Garden Talk

the other swampy places. He used the soil to raise his flower beds. A Mission gardener had a problem with runoff when he put in a gravel strip at the foot of a retaining wall. In heavy rain, the runoff became a flood that washed all the gravel downhill. He responded by concreting over the gravel strip. Then he bored small, deep holes about a foot (30 cm) apart all along the base of the wall. These holes intercepted the runoff water which sank into the soil underneath. Gulf Island gardeners can find themselves figuring out ways to grow plants on garden areas that are nothing but wall-to-wall rocks. A Saturna Island gardener had her husband put boards around a rocky part of her garden. She dumped kitchen waste there all winter and in spring topped it with an inch of soil. Then she grew asparagus there. Alpine plants are notoriously difficult to grow. That’s why a Vancouver gardener paid attention to detail when she made a scree bed. She dug out 12 inches (30 cm) of the original soil and added sharp-edged rocks. These she covered with the original soil mixed with sand following that she topped it with a pea gravel mulch.

few weeks ago, I went to the supermarket to pick up some fresh ginger root for a cooking class I was teaching. I only needed a couple of table-

spoons, so I broke off a small knob and proceeded to the cashier. She rang up my purchase and it came to a mere 17 cents. Usually I purchase ginger in much larger quantities, and along with my regular groceries, so I have never really thought about how little it actually costs. Immediately, I wondered why anyone would not use fresh ginger. The fibrous root of the plant is what we know as ginger is available in the produce section. This large knobby, lightskinned root is available is various sizes and shapes. When choosing ginger, make sure that it is firm, smooth, and free of blemishes and/or mould. Most people have powdered ginger in their selection of spices

and herbs, but fresh provides a much more pure flavour. The only application I find powdered ginger preferable in is creating a dry spice mix to use as a meat or seafood rub. Due to the pungency or “hotness” of fresh ginger, many people are selective about eating it and opt to use powdered forms for less intensity, or use no ginger at all. It is to these people however, that I suggest using fresh but in small quantities. One will notice that recipes will offer a fresher, more aromatic, ambience about them. A classic example of this is gingerbread. Many people, still to this day, will make gingerbread with powdered ginger. Using freshly grated ginger, however,

will bring your recipe to new heights by offering an abundance of character to the flavour of the cookies or cake form of this classic holiday treat. Just practise “moderation” if the thought of the pungent taste scares you. The easiest way to peel ginger is to simply scrape off the skin with the edge of a teaspoon, and then cut off the exposed root for further cutting as an ingredient. It is fibrous so it is almost always recommended to be chopped or grated, but it can be added in larger pieces to stirfries or other dishes if desired, as the cooking process will help to diminish its toughness. It can be stored in the whole form in the refrigerator for two to three weeks, or kept frozen for

many months. Ginger is used in many applications. Not only can it be purchased fresh and in powdered form, but also preserved, candied, pickled, and crystallized. It is also believed to have many medicinal properties and used to reduce fever, suppress appetite, stimulate digestion, and be effective for combating colds, coughs, and motion sickness. To make fresh ginger tea, boil one cup of water for few minutes with approximately one teaspoon of freshly chopped ginger and sweeten if desired. If you dislike the ginger particles floating in tea, then place the chopped ginger in a metal tea ball or empty disposable tea bag.

SLEEP APNEA?

Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not #23 having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. ! Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.

Heartburn Reflux High Blood Pressure?

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 95% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. ! Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC ! Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA ! Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antiacid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz #39 Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL ! Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON !Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different. Virginia Grant, 67, Markham, ON Skeptics may call anybody. All real people with honest statements.

Thunder strikes at U10 tourney A team of local girls, plus one boy, brought home the win from a ringette tournament. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

The thunder struck repeatedly in Kelowna last weekend as the Ridge Meadows/Poco Thunder boomed to victory at the 21st annual Sweetheart Ringette tournament. The U10 ringette team went undefeated in all four games. The tournament boasted 91 teams in 11 divisions from B.C. to Manitoba and is known as the “must attend event of the year” in the ringette circle. “But the Thunder did something that no other team did; they never lost a game,” said coach Tammy Gagnon. “They went four for four against the 12-team division and ended up as the only U10 team to do so, without a defeat,” coach Greg Chapman added. In their first game against the Fraser Valley Ring Stars, they

With three wins in a row, the Thunder went into the final game against the Kelowna Ring Robbers – also undefeated at this point – and laid it all on the line, elaborated coach Tammy Gagnon. Within the first three minutes of the game, the Thunder had scored four times before a time out was called by the other team. For the rest of the eighteen minute period, the Thunder weathered the Ring Robber storm to keep a 8-7 lead. In the second period, the Thunder policed them and fought back as Megan Bisset scored two beauties and Taylore Smith mugged the defence with a solid two-goal effort, said Gagnon. Goaltender Ashley Bakker, hijacked two breakaway chances and the Ring Robbers who unsuccessfully pulled their goalie with under two minutes to go as the Thunder took the 13-10 win.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: You enter a month of quietude. Be charitable; reconnect with your inner, spiritual core. Meditate, contemplate. Connect with old, faithful friends and relatives, visit shut-ins, volunteer at the hospital or food line. Deal with the government – do your tax return early, etc. This is a month to rejuvenate, to catch your breath for the very active months to follow. You’re going to be working overtime to June, then travelling and visiting much more than usual June into 2013, so rest deeply now. Your hopes rise Sunday/Monday. Retreat midweek. Your energy rises nicely Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your dreams could come true in the next few weeks. This dream – wish – is likely to involve social life or a chunk of money (an investment or debt or family assets) a change of lifestyle, a research finding, or a health matter. Don’t look for it too assiduously, as luck likes a free rein. (The best wishes are fleeting ones: jaw-clenched, super-concentration wishes rarely come true.) Your popularity rises, ditto your optimism, flirtatiousness and general joy! (Especially Tuesday to Thursday.) Be ambitious Sunday/Monday. Retreat to plan, rest and think Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead hold career opportunities and tests, deadlines, performance demands and events that can affect your reputation. You’ve had a rough 15 years, especially this past year. If you’ve lost, perhaps you regain now. If you’ve cheated, you lose now – or someone calls you on it. On the positive side, you have just entered (Feb. 3) a 15-year “true career” phase – whatever you do, going forward, will use your best talents, and raise you to your true height. Clues abound midweek, especially Tuesday. Early week’s mellow, loving. Joy and popularity Friday/ Saturday!

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of gentle, loving wisdom starts now. Themes of international travel, import-export, law, higher learning, religion, philosophy and culture – one or some – will arise, especially this Tuesday to Thursday. This is a good time to study new subjects, to expand your consciousness. Authorities, VIPs and higher-ups will favour you, even though you won’t work particularly hard. Messages have a double meaning, or grow more profound with a second glance. Mysteries, lust (for money or bodies) and health decisions arise Sunday/Monday – good stuff here! Be ambitious Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead emphasize mysteries, sexual urges, large finances, lifestyle changes, health matters that need to be diagnosed, commitments and consequences. What has been in the open (emotional attraction, funding negotiations, opportunities) now veers into the confidential and actual – sexual intimacy, commitment to funding, etc. This entire sector has just been reborn. For 15 years, your intuition will grow more accurate, your subconscious will rise to the surface. You’ll see deeply into events/people. Sunday/Monday highlight relationships; Tuesday-Thursday bring their depths. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationships come front and centre for the next few weeks. This area has changed deeply but almost imperceptibly in the last month.You have left a “co-operative partnership” love theme, to enter a “mystery/fascination” love theme. Light, surface-gliding emotions will fly away as the wind of attraction flows into your life. Remember one thing for 15 years: if you have an ulterior motive, relationships will deceive and disillusion you. If you have unselfish motives, you will see everyone with new clarity, and love will bless you. Clues arrive midweek, especially Tuesday morn.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead hold many chores, some drudgery, some boredom. Tackle health concerns, dress and eat sensibly, and get proper rest. Not all will be boring, as a sweet relationship continues to intrigue you, especially this week – Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. (But deep down you probably realize this person won’t make a good long-term mate – that person won’t show until June onward – and the best will show late September onwards. Still, this affair, if it blossoms, will please and delight you for awhile.) A new work project might begin midweek – all’s smooth! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Romance won’t be a stranger this week or the next few! (But you’d do best to strike before March, as a slowdown and indecision will come to intimate affairs that month.) Another influence promises that you will face major opportunities this year, in relocation, business, public dealings, money – and love. You could meet a life-mate now. (But there’s no rush – many chances occur in the next 15 years. Still, why bypass this splendid one? You can’t know beforehand which one will “stick.”) Pleasure, beauty, charming kids and creative and speculative success round out the month ahead. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Settle into home, family and nature during the weeks ahead. Nap often. Revise your diet. End unproductive projects, circumstances and relationships. Make way for the new, which is coming June onward, in big ways. Tuesday to Thursday shows you where your security and your “soul” lie. Earlier, Sunday/Monday bring messages, travel, calls, paperwork and casual friends. Your romantic, creative and risk-taking side rises to the surface Friday/Saturday – but this is not a time for expansion; rather, “pulling in” fits your mood. The whole week is smooth, easy. Complete new chores.

Feb. 19 - 25, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of travel, paperwork, details, errands, calls and visits starts now. You’ll be busy (especially this midweek) but nothing big’s at stake, so you can “relax in the doing.” You are becoming very intuitive about calling, writing, where information lies, who’s good to befriend now, who not. Respond to, follow, the small, invisible nudge you feel whenever the idea of contacting someone arises. This ability will grow – for 15 years. Until July, continue to be wary of legal hassles, cautious in international affairs. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Home, Friday on. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead emphasize money, income, possessions, purchases, rote learning, memory and sensual attractions. Seek more responsibilities, a pay raise, new clients, etc. In dealing with people and situations, you’ll gain more if you accept things at face value – digging deep would tend to waste time and prevent opportunities from reaching a final stage. Your charm and energy surge Sunday/Monday – start something, impress someone! All those money themes arise midweek. Trips, calls, casual friends and new information come Thursday night to Saturday – be curious Saturday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and sense of timing shoot to the roof, now to late March. Get out, see and be seen, ask favours, and start projects – but don’t start anything you can’t finish quickly (or at least put on a solid first step) as March brings a slowdown and indecision, especially in money zones. Retreat from the crowd Sunday/Monday. Think, and plan your next week or two. Put your plans in motion Tuesday/Wednesday, when you’re at the top of your effectiveness. Money and income affairs might surprise Thursday eve to Friday noon, then bless you into Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca

Just wanted to thank Team Diverse, and the outstanding installers working with Diverse Flooring. Right from start to finish we were impressed with the professional, courteous manner of everyone on your team. We were called each day to confirm the time the installers would arrive and were continually called to make sure we were happy and if there was anything you could do for us. The end results are fantastic; we love all our new flooring and would highly recommend Diverse Flooring!
