Bouncer faces assault charge A man was left with permanent disabilities after he was ejected from a Maple Ridge bar. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

A bouncer who ejected two men from a Maple Ridge’s bar on June 13, 2010, is in court this week facing an aggravated assault charge. Joseph Robert Calla’s trial in New Westminster Supreme Court is expected to last three weeks. Calla is accused of causing permanent mental and physical damage as a result of the injuries he inflicted when bouncing a patron and his friend from the bar at which he was working. The assault on Del Parent, father of two, occurred around 2 a.m. at the bar, which is in the 22300 block of Lougheed Highway. Parent was treated by paramedics at the scene. He walked away from the bar only to be found two days later, suffering from stroke-like symptoms. Del’s brother Andre Parent, said he got a call from his brother’s co-worker on the Tuesday after he was assaulted, because Del hadn’t shown up for work for two days. Andre found Del on the floor. He was taken to Ridge Meadows Hospital by ambulance and a CT scan revealed serious bleeding in his brain. He required immediate surgery at Royal Columbian Hospital to relieve the pressure. “He’s suffered severe mental and physical damage as a result of the injuries,” said Andre. “He will be handicapped for the rest of his life.” Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Diane Cougar and Jim MacDonald are making sure poppies will be sold throughout the community. Taggers will be at locations in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge from this Saturday until Nov. 10, the day before Remembrance Day.

Forty people, all under the age of 40, were feted on Tuesday afternoon, culminating with applause from Maple Ridge mayor and council for their efforts to recycle and protect the environment. The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows TIMES and the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society launched the campaign this summer to find 40 people who are making an effort to live sustainably, recycle, and work towards keeping the planet healthy. The Top 40 Under 40 Community Environmental Leaders included kids as young as five who recycle, cycle, and look after the planet in their own way, to young adults who are practising small-lot farming and permaculture, to business people whose enterprises help keep the environment healthy and clean. On Tuesday afternoon, the Top 40 Under 40 were invited on a tour of the recycling depot, where the society’s Daniel Mikolay, who does a lot of public education about recycling for the society, explained how items get recycled – from tin cans, milk cartons, and newspaper to old bicycles and paint. After the tour, the award winners were invited to meet Maple

Daniel Mikolay with the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society gave a tour of the depot on Tuesday afternoon. Ridge mayor and council, and Leanne Koehn with the recycling society gave a presentation at the council meeting on the campaign and why these people were chosen. Koehn also challenged her audience to take recycling seriously.

“Everybody has the potential to become an environmental leader,” she said. Koehn explained how the board of the recycling society is always trying to find new ways to recycle. The latest initiative is to recycle styrofoam, which can be

dropped off at the depot for a $2 charge. After Koehn’s presentation, Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin thanked The TIMES for its part in the campaign, calling the newspaper a “good corporate citizen.” (The Oct. 23 TIMES featured the 40 environmental leaders.)

Housing

Home supports residents

A $9-million transitional building on Brown Avenue was officially opened on Wednesday. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

It took about nine years from an initial idea to when the doors were opened and residents could move into second-stage housing in Maple Ridge. Alouette Heights at 222nd Street and Brown Avenue was officially opened on Wednesday afternoon with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The project was first conceived almost a decade ago when the community homelessness task force recognized a need for a place where people could go to get back on their feet and transition to stable,

permanent housing, according to Alouette Home Start Society’s past president Sheila McLaughlin. There was no place to go to in the community when people left emergency shelters like the Caring Place and Cythera Transition House. Alouette Heights is a place where people come to get support and retrain so they can get their lives back together, McLaughlin said. “They just want a place to call home,” she said. Alouette Heights was built with $8 million from the provincial government. The District of Maple Ridge donated the land, valued at about $1 million. Residents started moving into the 45 apartments this summer and will typically live there from six months to two years. There is round-the-clock support for the residents.

Ghost Ridge

Haunted house turns 10 Several community groups have stepped up to make a local Halloween attraction a success. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Ghost Ridge celebrates its 10th scary season this year with new props, actors, scenes, and scares. This year’s event is titled Phobiax: Face Your Fears. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Ghost Ridge is open for a family-friendly hour from 5 to 6 p.m., when admission is half price and the sets and actors are lowimpact for the younger and more squeamish visitors. “Most of our actors are high-school students who volunteer their time and energy as well, and many of them also assist with preparation, cleanup, and

maintenance during the event,” said Joan Granholm, one of the organizers. One of the aspects of Ghost Ridge that the organizers are proud of is that very little of their presentation consists of purchased or professionally manufactured effects. “We construct almost all of our props and sets ourselves. We can give you scares we absolutely guarantee you won’t find anywhere else,” Granholm added. This year’s participating groups are the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Canoe and Kayak Club, the Lady Bruins Senior Women’s Rugby Club, and Country Fest. All proceeds after expenses go directly to the involved groups… there are no paid staff, it is an entirely volunteer-run event. The 900-square foot haunted house located at the Albion Fairgrounds, just south of Planet Ice, runs Oct. 26 to 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is $8 per person.

Our View

Families need holiday help With Halloween around the corner and Remembrance Day coming soon, Christmas isn’t far off. And now is the time for those of us who can put a meal on the table to start thinking about how to help those families who are struggling financially to have a merry Christmas. The folks at the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society have been shopping for needy families for months – they are experts at finding bargains – and will start registering families on Nov. 18. The hamper society gets financial help from different sources – the Stripa-thon, the Empty Stocking Fund, and the local firefighters who will be collecting money around town for them on Dec. 15 – but many groups also step forward to give generously. And the society can always do with more financial help, as the need seems to be growing every year. Last year the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society helped 640 families – the most ever. The society has a Good Neighbour program through which anyone can sponsor a family, buying gifts for children and a food voucher to buy a turkey and all the trimmings. Often it is a business, a sports team, a school, or just a group of friends who decide to sponsor a family. Sponsors can indicate how big a family they can support – small, medium, or large – and they can specify whether they want younger kids, teens, just girls, or just boys. The hamper society recommends that groups spend $75 per child on gifts. Out of the 640 families that were sponsored, the Good Neighbour Program took care of about 100. For information on how to sponsor a hamper family, go to www.mrpmchristmashamper.org and click on the Good Neighbour Program icon.

Homeless

Federal policies push poverty

Dear Editor, There have been some complaints about the activities of the poor and dispossessed that the Caring Place ministers to in the downtown core recently [Shelter manager asks for acceptance, Oct. 11, TIMES]. But I also live in this area and have not experienced any of those things. It has, in fact, been very good in the area I live in, 224th Street and North Avenue, except for the occasional prostitute walking through. Realistically, with right-wing government’s like Stephen Harper’s funnelling more and more of our wealth to their rich friends, what do you expect? The poor and dispossessed will continue to grow under these types of governments. And, yes, they will be in your communities, and you will have to face this reality.

The Caring Place is not the problem, it’s your governments and their policies which fail to address the situation of poverty. During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt initiated a program to help people through those tough times. He didn’t cast them off and forget them. He showed them compassion and caring. Our governments must do the same to try and help these people out during these tough times, instead of just off-loading the problems onto the municipalities. What has happened to the compassion and caring in our society today? Folks, it is only going to get worse. Poverty is not disappearing any time soon, so we’d better start dealing with it in a compassionate way. John McKenzie, Maple Ridge

Odd Thoughts

Diatribe not up to date with pipes

Dear Editor, Your latest diatribe about Enbridge [Environment gets white-washed, Oct. 16 Odd Thoughts, TIMES] shows a remarkable lack of knowledge of current pipesline

regulations, construction methods, and line pipe specifications, let alone the federal government’s regulations and controls of the construction. The leak in the U.S. was

Federal politics

Agreement forces pipeline

Dear Editor, As hard as the many different groups in B.C. are working to stop Enbridge’s pipeline and expanded oil tanker plans for B.C., it will all be a moot point at the end of October this year when the Harper government ratifies the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPPA). A much as Christy Clark would like to position herself as our champion, attempting to pull her government out of the gutter in advance of next May’s election, the only way that she can show British Columbians that she is serious about this issue is to challenge the constitutionality of the agreement in court, asking that it not be ratified until the courts have reached a decision. Otherwise, Canada will be locked into a 31-year agreement, and any B.C. provincial government that objects or interferes with the profit margin or forecasted profit margin for any of the Chinese investors in B.C. oil and/or gas, will be risking being sued by any of these companies. The agreement also protects those companies from any demonstrations planned by citizens. Correct me if I’m wrong. I did not realize that the prime minister had the authority to sign multi-year agreements affecting provinces without at least consulting them first. Scary, scary stuff. The question is: Will Christy do what needs to be done, or will she continue to deliberately muddy the waters with her staged theatre? Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

in an older line, not up to today’s requirements. And the line did not leak tarry sand, as any trace of sand would eat through a pipeline long before it made the U.S. border. Facts. Just the facts, Mr. Groeneveld. Pipe specifications have increased exponentially. The metallurgy is constantly being upgraded to overcome any possibility of stress cracks or outright breaks. One comment that is very accurate: Enbridge will not build the line. They are a transmission company; the construction will be contracted out to worldclass pipeline contractors, Canadian or not. Enbridge will also contract experienced inspectors to monitor the work. I would suggest you obtain a pipeline map of British Columbia and review how many of these older lines have had a cataclysmic disaster, in particular, the larger and older lines If we continue to live and endorse the “what ifs,” we might as well stay at home and die. The future lies in progress. Terry Brenan, Aldergrove [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. mrtimes.com.]

Amanda obviously had a mental health issue, because that didn’t happen. She continued with the insensible and irresponsible actions into the discouraged world of drugs and alcohol. She made it worse for herself. Something is being missed. We can’t have these behaviours in our kids and ourselves. We are collectively only looking at half of the solution. Bullying doesn’t stop – it exists in the adult world, too, and our kids have to be prepared for that. Encouraging and teaching our kids to do and know better is as necessary as encouraging a stop to bullying. We also need to have a better awareness in schools of kids’ mental health needs. If Amanda was properly taken care of, a lot could have been prevented. If I cut my finger, I can have it stitched up for free, but if I require a therapist, it costs my money and my will.

Bullying

Dear Editor, I have a problem with the response and heightened level of shock emitted by the general public regarding the story and death of Amanda Todd. While there’s no reason for the public not to take notice, it appears that all of this support is being given without taking a look at the other side of this. The anti-bullying “advocates” on the many Facebook pages and others spreading what is “her message” are right in doing that, and saying that this isn’t over with her death. However, some of them are saying that Amanda Todd, for doing what she did, is a hero. They probably have little to no idea of what she did before the suicide. If I had kids, I wouldn’t want them to see her as a role model. I’ve had friends who were like Amanda, but they recognized clearly that those behaviours had to stop and change.

Haunted heritage hunted

2012

The Ghost of Hoffmann will be at the Pitt Meadows Museum this Sunday. by Jennifer Chernecki

Special to The TIMES

Looking for some spooky fun this Halloween weekend? What better place to find it than in Pitt Meadows’s oldest and most reputedly haunted building? The Pitt Meadows Museum invites you and your family to join us on Sunday, Oct. 28 between 2 and 7 p.m. for Museum After Dark. Take the Mad Museum Look and Find, in which you will search our hallowed halls for such classics as the Death Beetle, Ben Schlick’s Tongues on Sticks, and Free Range Organic Eyeballs. New additions to the hunt this year include the recently discovered Pitt Lake Merman, everyone’s favourite classic seasonal treat – deep charred rat – and the Ghost of Hoffmann. You can ask some assistance from representatives of West Coast Paranormal

Pitt Meadows After Dark Halloween evening offers ghoulish delights for the community. Investigators, who, fresh from their recent investigation of the museum, will be giving their findings and answering questions involving all things ectoplasmic. We invite you to bring a digital camera and take a quick lesson on how to capture orb images of your own in our galleries. In the kitchen, we will be brewing up some experimental cocoa, which we invite you to taste, perhaps while making a glowing eye lantern or creating a Shrink-It charm. All that is before travel-

ling across the street to the Hoffmann and Son garage to visit our haunted forge and watch the sparks fly. Dress to impress in your spookiest garb to collect your tricks and treats. Museum after Dark is open to ghouls and bats of all ages. Admission is by donation. For more information, contact the Pitt Meadows Museum at 604-465-4322 or email pittmeadowsmuseum@telus.net. Hope to scare you there: it’s gonna be a scream!

- Jennifer Chernicki is the museum at the Pitt Meadows Museum

Go Green

In the garbage, not the toilet

Flushing baby wipes, disposable mop cloths/pads and feminine hygiene products down the toilet can clog our sewer system and damage the environment. At the sewage pumping station in Pitt Meadows, pipes need to be manually unblocked 2-3 times every week to keep the system running.These items belong in the garbage, not the toilet. Better yet, use a non-disposable option when you can. More information: www.metrovancouver.org (search: residential sources)

PITT MEADOWS CITIZEN SATISFACTION SURVEY During the month of September, the City partnered with Ipsos Reid to conduct a random telephone survey of residents to get their feedback on the quality of life in Pitt Meadows, and perceptions of services, taxes, and communication. Generally, residents considered the “small-town feel” to be the best part of living in Pitt Meadows. Other mentions included accessibility and location, and the peaceful or quiet atmosphere of the community. A majority of those polled also indicated they felt the quality of life in Pitt Meadows was good or improving. However, transportation continues to be a dominant issue on the public agenda. The results of the survey were released at the Council meeting on October 16.To read the full report, visit the City’s website at pittmeadows.bc.ca.

Environment

Protestors oppose pipeline Paraphernalia, drugs seized

Locals voiced their concerns over a northern project to bring oil through British Columbia.

Police took more than 26 grams of crack and 65 grams of pot off the streets.

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Drumming and singing could be heard on Wednesday afternoon as local residents protested in front of MLA Marc Dalton’s office Wednesday against a proposed pipeline. About 70 people were out in the drizzling rain expressing their concern over Enbridge’s plans to build the Northern Gateway pipeline. This was one of about 50 such protests across the province, following Monday’s protest in front of the legislature in Victoria that attracted several thousand people including Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents. Verity Howarth was one of the organizers of Wednesday’s demonstration, and she said, while she’s more of social activist than an environmentalist, the pipeline issue has inspired her to get involved. Howarth grew up in Prince George where the Northern Gateway pipeline is planned to go through, and she works in Abbotsford next to a pipeline that Kinder Morgan wants to expand. “It’s right in my backyard on two fronts,” she said. Even kids know about conserving and alternative energy sources, Howarth said.

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

About 70 people lined the street in front of MLA Marc Dalton’s office on Wednesday afternoon to show their concern over Enbridge’s plans to build a pipeline in northern B.C. “I felt that I could not not get involved,” she said. Geri Pinel, from the Golden Ears Transition Initiative (GETI), said he was at the protest “because oil is not the answer... too much of our civilization is based on oil.” Pinel said all of modern civilization is based on fossil fuels, and society shouldn’t have “all its eggs in one basket.” Howarth was among the thousands who were in Victoria on Monday to protest against the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Howarth, who is with the Fraser Valley Pipeline Watch Group, said she is concerned about the possibility of tanker spills and toxic gases

from a bitumen spill. In the event of a tanker spill, Howarth said the Fraser River and the health of the salmon would be at risk. In addition, more focus should be put on finding alternative energy sources and not on tarsands, Howarth added. “Incentives/subsidies to create green-economy jobs could actually benefit business in Maple Ridge and create local jobs,” Howarth said. “With the current situation, we are sending more and more of our workers to the tarsands. I know of four families this year where the dad has started commuting to Northern Alberta to work.”

From the street corner to his vehicle to his home, things just kept getting worse and worse for a 29-yearold Maple Ridge man. Ridge Meadows RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit arrested the man after they found him dealing in illegal drugs. The arrest was made mid-afternoon on Thursday, Oct. 18, in the 20500 block of Lougheed Highway. When police officers subsequently searched the man and his vehicle, they turned up several packages of crack cocaine apparently meant for sale. The drugs were seized, and police continued with a search of the man’s home, where they found more individual packs of crack cocaine, a “substantial amount of money,” some marijuana, and other items considered to be associated with the drug trade. Ridge Meadows RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said, “The RCMP is always concerned about any substance that is on our streets that may harm citizens. In this case, we seized more than 26 grams of crack cocaine, 65 grams of marijuana, nearly $7,500 in cash, and 12 cellular phones from an active dealer.” She added, “This case is now before the courts.” The suspect was released on a promise to appear for court in January 2013.

Warrington trial no mistrial

A judge has ruled there will be no mistrial for Dennis Warrington. He’s accused of posting naked pictures of a 16-year-old girl who claims she was sexually assaulted at a rave in Pitt Meadows two years ago. Warrington, who now lives in Langley, was charged after three photos showing a man and a 16-year-old girl engaged in sexual activity were posted to his Facebook account the day after an outdoor rave in Pitt Meadows on Sept. 10, 2010.

Halloween

Students scare up food A Garibaldi Secondary social group wants to help locally this Halloween. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A group of students won’t be collecting treats on Halloween or doing any nasty tricks – instead they will be collecting food for the Friends In Need Food Bank. The Rebels for a Cause group at Garibaldi Secondary, about 25 students in total, will take part in the Free the Children’s Halloween campaign, renamed this year, “We Scare Halloween.” The students will drop off pamphlets at homes in various areas around town a week before Halloween to explain what the campaign is, and on Oct. 31, they hope to collect non-perishable food items from these homes.

The Garibaldi students want to help local people who are hungry, which is why they are collecting for Friends In Need Food Bank. “Usually when people think of people who are hungry, they think of overseas,” said Sara Stanley, one of the student organizers, who pointed out that one in six children in Canada live under the poverty line. Last year, Rebels for a Cause collected more than 1,000 cans of food for the food bank on Halloween. Rebels for a Cause have also worked on other social action projects. The group raised $10,000 to build a school in Sierra Leone in western Africa, which was then built through Free the Children. They are currently halfway to their $5,000 fundraising goal for a well also in Sierra Leone.

Animal welfare

Pets need protection from tricks and treats With Halloween around the corner, it’s a good time to think about animals and their safety. All those weird loud noises, as well as the little people trafficking in and out of the neighbourhood can be upsetting to pets and can even lead to harm. “Fireworks going off, a constantly ringing doorbell, and the presence of costumed strangers can all cause animals to panic, putting both pets and people in danger,” said Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager of community relations.

Halloween safety tips for pets:

When dogs and cats are frightened they are more likely to run away, jump out of open windows, or dart into traffic. Stressed pets can also behave out of character – even scratching or biting people, said Chortyk. It’s not only companion animals at risk. “Frightened farm animals have even been known to run into barbed-wire fences or other obstructions. With a little planning, guardians can take steps to keep their all their animals safe on Halloween,” said Chortyk.

Keep pets inside: Pets who are inside have fewer opportunities to confront trick-or-treaters. Some do well left in a separate room with the radio or television on to mask the sound of fireworks and trick-or-treaters. Be sure to leave plenty of toys in the room so that he doesn’t think he’s being isolated as a punishment. Identification: Make sure he or she is wearing identification. Dogs and cats may try to run away if they feel threatened. Clear, current identification is the best chance to have them returned home. Candy is for people: Candy can lead to health problems such as diabetes or obesity, and chocolate is especially dangerous because it contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs and cats. Keep treats well away from pets. Leave home without them: Some people think it would be fun to bring a pet trick-or-treating, but the pet may not share the same view. The strange sights and sounds of Halloween can cause a normally friendly dog to bite if it feels scared or threatened. Don’t costume your pet: Dressing a dog in a costume inhibits his ability to communicate, making him prone to display aggression himself or be subjected to aggressive behaviour from other dogs.

Art puts focus on soldiers’ courage

A Fort Gallery display reveals the emotional undercurrents of military men.

Vanessa had her friend Victoria over from her new school, Pacific Academy, and they thought it would be fun to bake a couple of pies together. “I made the crust and had the girls assisted me in measuring and stirring the pie filling,” said Tammy. “We baked two pies, ate one and set the other aside for entry the fol-

Emotions are often described as what runs under the surface of a person. What would this look like for a soldier? Maple Ridge artist Shari Pratt captures some of what may lie underneath in her art series, “Attention”. A 15-piece exhibit, “Attention” will be on display at the Fort Gallery in Fort Langley until Nov. 12. According to Pratt, the artwork depicts soldiers at attention while asking individuals to also pay attention to the emotions soldiers may have felt while courageously facing their fear and anger. Started in 2011, Pratt developed the series when the first piece “Airman Commences” was created for a separate show about loneliness. “It [Airman Commences] influenced me to create a series involving soldiers,” Pratt noted. The majority of the pieces in the show feature painted portraits above layers of other objects which are revealed and detached to show what exists under the surface. “Most pieces include some form of mixed media (some even have uniSubmitted forms embedded) and all The Airman Commences by Shari Pratt will be involve four to on display with 14 other pieces in the exhibit eight layers,” “Attention” at the Fort Gallery. commented Pratt. The consistent use of a 24x48-inch canvas emphasizes the concept of the men standing at attention. Pratt said she installs eight of the individual pieces in a row, similar to a military lineup, when they are displayed. Pratt has no war experience, nor any political message. She sees the series as focused on the profound courage individual soldiers have. Meet Pratt at an opening reception on Oct. 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Fort Gallery at 9048 Glover Road. Regular gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m., Wednesdays to Sundays, and there will be a special opening on Nov. 12 in honour of Remembrance Day.

lowing morning.” And the judging began. “We waited, they tasted – we kept our eye on the chef from Big Feast Bistro and the mayor who seemed to be having extra bites of our pie.” The judges removed the pies, one by one, to another table, leaving only the winning pie. “We won the red ribbon for best youth pie and the blue ribbon for Grand Master Pie Baker.”

Music

Singers preparing to hit high notes in Colorado

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Westcoast Harmony Chorus members are aspiring to make beautiful music in the Mile High City next week. The Lower Mainlandbased chorus is bringing 50 of its members to the Denver 2012 International Convention, Oct. 30 to Nov. 3, in Denver, Colo. The Westcoast entertainers, ranging in age from 20s to 80s, come from Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, and across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. One member travels from Kamloops for the group’s Wednesday night rehearsals. Westcoast qualified for the Denver competition in a Region 26 (B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan) competition in Calgary in May 2011. “We came first place overall,” recalled Maple Ridge resident Maureen Beechinor, who joined the chorus three years ago. “When you win in your region, you are qualified to go to international the following year.” In Calgary, the Westcoast women placed first for AA (mid-size, up to 60 members) chorus and took first place overall. Leading the chorus is director Anne Marteniuk who, at 25, is the youngest master director in the world of Sweet Adeline’s music. Martiniuk, according to Beechinor, is a master of her craft. “I never thought that, at my age, I would have a mentor who is half my age,” Beechinor said. Marteniuk is the Region 26 education coordinator, and is famous for her “Anne-isms” “She likes make-up words such as ‘Contrastic’ or ‘Artisticize,’” Beechinor said. “Despite her university education, Anne is absolutely sure these words are in the dictionary.” Looking ahead to Denver, the Westcoast singers elected to enter into the Harmony Classic competition, involving the top five mid-size choruses and top five small choruses in the world. The B.C.’ers entered the Harmony Classic portion because they are then able to do a 15-minute show

package, as opposed to a competition set which consists of just two songs. This marks Westcoast’s second Harmony Classic competition. In 2010 in Seattle, Westcoast finished second in the AA category. Langley’s Trudy Zonneveld is a Westcoast veteran of 31 years, and is among the singers heading to Denver. She never gets tired of singing with her Harmony “sisters.” “Every week there’s a challenge,” Zonneveld said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re there for one year or 31 years, there’s always new music, a new show, a new competition, there

“It’s not something you can go into thinking, ‘Oh, this is a Wednesday night thing, seven until 10.’” Brandie Pelto

are new members to be welcoming, so it’s just a wonderful challenge.” The spin-offs are plentiful, according to Zonneveld, who served as Westcoast’s membership chair for 14 years. “I also went into regional management and I was the marketing membership coordinator for western Canada,” Zonneveld added. “I did that for six years. I would have never dreamt of doing anything like that in my private life. By learning all these things, I had more courage to do things.” For Brandie Pelto, rejoining the chorus was like travelling back in time. She was a Westcoast member for nine years, from the mid 80s to the early 90s. It also reunited her with Beechinor. The two had previously worked together for a local community newspaper. “Brandie came to a ‘sneak peek’ performance – my first one, in May of 2010,” Beechinor recalled. “She saw me on stage, called me up, we reconnected, and she eventually decided that she should rejoin the chorus.” Pelto was “instantly hooked” after watching the 2010 show. “It’s so exciting and you learn so much vocally,” Pelto said. “You couldn’t get lessons like we get if you paid for them from a private tutor.” The chorus rehearses Wednesday nights at Surrey’s Parkland Fellowship Church, but members are encouraged

to do a fair amount of “homework” on their own. “You do a lot of stuff at home,” Pelto said. “Choreography, learning dance moves and stuff, so it’s not something you can go into thinking, ‘Oh, this is a Wednesday night thing, seven until 10.’” This marriage of presentation and singing separates choruses from choirs, the Westcoast members stressed. “There’s a ton of choreography,” Beechinor said. “We are meant to move,” Zonneveld said. “We’re engaged.” North Delta’s Marji Rohla will be entering her first competition in Denver and describes the Westcoast style as “groundbreaking.” “We’re doing more cutting-edge arrangements,” she said. “From within our chorus, we have an arranger who has arranged this incredible mash-up. They’re very current songs and it’s awesome. We do things that are outside the box.” Pitt Meadows’ Ellen Lewis is the other local resident heading to Denver with the chorus. The group flies to Colorado this Sunday, Oct. 28. Westcoast’s annual membership drive is in the new year, Jan. 9, 16, and 23, when potential new members are encouraged to attend the group’s rehearsals in Surrey.

Salmon spawn in movie series

Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt will be on the big screen in downtown Maple Ridge on Monday.

Patricia Maxwell (Kristin Scott Thomas) fastens on to the request as a “goodwill” story of Anglo-Arab cooperation to distract the voters from ongoing bad news out of Afghanistan, and pressures Fred into working with Harriet and the sheikh to implement the project. Fred gradually comes to believe in the sheikh’s quest. Estranged from his careerminded wife, Fred falls in love with Harriet, whose boyfriend Robert (Tom Mison) has just gone missing in action in the war. After Fred declares his love to Harriet, Robert returns alive, requiring her to choose between the two men. The fish are released and the project seems to be succeeding, but it is sabotaged by local militants who destroy the salmon runs. But when Fred sees some fish have survived, he regains his faith, and Harriet joins him to fulfill the sheikh’s vision. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen runs on

A British government expert in salmon fisheries, Fred Jones (Ewan McGregor) is asked for help to fulfill a wealthy Yemeni sheikh (Amr Waked) vision to introduce salmon fishing to the desert country of Yemen by the sheikh’s consultant Harriet Chetwode-Talbot (Emily Blunt). Fred rejects the idea as unfeasible; however, the Prime Minister’s press secretary,

Children gain self esteem with horses A therapeutic horseback riding association in Maple Ridge benefits people with varying forms of disabilities. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Seven-year-old Riley Griffith, who has autism, has “blossomed” since he first began horseback riding sessions at North Fraser Therapeutic Ridge Association. “We started last Spring. The first five weeks he was so full of anxiety. He has just blossomed since then,” said mom Selina Griffith. “He is already asking to ride without anyone holding onto his leg,” Selina added. “I can tell he’s developing core and focus. Now he is looking where he is supposed to be looking. He listens to what they say and follows directions,” she said. “From what I’ve seen so far, [NFTRA] is awesome. This is another means to therapy.” The association provides therapeutic riding programs for people with physical, emotional, and developmental challenges. “Some kids don’t even realize they are in therapy,” said Gay Conn, general manager of NFTRA. The programs have made an incredible difference to the quality of life of several hundred children and adults with varying degrees of

Young actor plans run for money A Maple Ridge boy is parlaying his success in acting into added awareness for a worthy cause. by Sylver McLaren

Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Local actor Tanner Saunders is planning a fundraiser run on Nov. 17 that will benefit Friends In Need Food Bank.

Tanner Saunders is an up and coming star of the big screen, and he hopes there will be many accolades and acting awards in his future. He also hopes he can provide some help to people who need a leg up, by hosting a charity event in support of the Friends in Need Food Bank. The 11-year-old Maple Ridge boy has been acting for a year and was cast as Trent in the first episode of Red Widow, which will air on ABC in January. “That was my first major audition, and I wasn’t the most confident,” Tanner recalled. But he landed the role, and subsequently “had a blast” filming on set at the University of British Columbia. He has also been cast in a TV Movie called A Moment In Time,

Ridge Meadows Junior B Flames beat first place Richmond Sockeyes on Friday night at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge. In the first period, Matthew Bissett scored a powerplay goal assisted by Bradley Wardner and Adam Bartsch. Two minutes later, Paul Piluso followed up with his own power-play goal, assisted by Michael Nolan and Travis Oddy. In the second period, the Flames put the puck past the Sockeyes goalkeeper twice. Bissett scored again, with Sean Pesut assisting, and Adam Bartsch scored with help from Pesut and Bissett. The Sockeyes scored their goals in the second and third periods. All three stars of the game were awarded to players from the Flames. First star went to Matthew Bissett, second star to Marco Ballarin, and third star went to Wesley McLeod. Ridge Meadows Flames sits in second place, with 10 points, in the Harold Brittain Conference. Next home game is against the North Delta Devils on Friday, Oct. 26.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your home life grows more affectionate for three weeks. Romance, love of children, beauty, art, crafts, pleasure, adventure, vacations, speculation, sports and winning fill the month ahead. Events will proceed slowly but grow deeply in this zone now to late 2015. Love’s very likely! Sunday puts pressure on you, from authorities, bosses or parents. Your hopes climb Monday/ Tuesday – popularity, social joys, light romance and entertainment bring a celebration atmosphere. Avoid illusion (and alcohol) around work, health. Retreat, contemplate Wednesday to Friday. You shine Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent rests on home, security, hibernation (deep naps) children, garden, nutrition, retirement plans and life’s basics, now to late November. This area is protected, beneficial, yet slow and a bit restrictive, for several years ahead. You might start working at home, or find your home causes work. (Both OK.) A gentle, affectionate mood buoys Sunday. But work, ambition, and dealing with higherups fill Monday/Tuesday. Be cautious here, especially of your own motives. Celebration, happy friends, light romance and optimism greet you Wednesday to Friday. New (quirky) love possible! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks ahead bring communications, errands, short trips and casual but “heavy” friends – and details, reports, paperwork.This whole area will be beneficial but slow until late 2015. A casual friend might become a lover, even a spouse. Sunday features depths, mysteries, sexual urges and financial desires: but nothing significant happens, so make it fun. (E.g., see a seductive film.) A wise, gentle mood steals over you Monday/Tuesday – but avoid illusion and “tempting goals.” Your ambitions, career and relations with higher-ups fill mid-late week. Drive carefully Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent remains on lifestyle changes, health diagnoses, research, investments, debt, resources owned in tandem with others, sexual desires, agent work, therapy, psychology, occultism, dreams and subconscious urges. You stand at the fulcrum of your life this week and the next two – from here, you can make changes that will turn your whole life. You attract attention Sunday, but with little result. Possessions, spending, earning, and sensual bonds draw you Monday/Tuesday. Caution best. Errands, trips, communications fill midweek. Family, Saturday. Be cautious all week. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis remains on relationships, negotiations, agreements, dealings with the public, relocation, potential fame and opportunities in general. This zone is mildly lucky (more correctly, mildly protective toward you) for many months to come. Now to 2014, the worst thing you can do is withdraw or become independent and self-centric (i.e., reject relationships). Remember this Monday/ Tuesday, when your energy surges, but “working in tandem” yields more rewards than independence. Rest, Sunday. Chase money, Wednesday onward: it’s the birth of profit! Practice work safety. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead emphasize work, health and dependents. Unchanging tasks bore you; you thrive on variety. However, there might be little workplace variety now to late 2015, so plod onward. (Most of 2013, 14 and 15 will not focus on work – just Novembers.) In general, this area is benevolent, protected to 2015 – and even beyond. You might find your work has a direct connection to investment, debt, or another’s resources; that research aids your progress; and that your actual work changes in a deep and meaningful way. You’re weary Monday/ Tuesday; you bounce back Wednesday-Friday.

Oct. 28 - Nov. 3, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You’ve been energetic and magnetic the past few weeks, and travel has brought you to a potential mate (if you’re single: potential business partner if you’re attached). But deep talks and affection have been missing. Now through midNovember you are likely to draw serious sensual attention and happy talks. Otherwise the month ahead emphasizes earnings and purchases – things will be slow but supportive here, to late 2015. You might buy property. Sunday’s exciting but yields little. Monday/ Tuesday: sex, finances. Wednesday to Friday brings love, compassion, travel, higher learning. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are high and strong – take advantage. Start projects, seek favours, propose methods, systems, see and be seen. You are feeling (perhaps very slightly) more sober, serious and cautious – this will last for three years. So start projects carefully, with planning and foresight. You’ll get done what needs doing. Despite your heightened charisma, love partnerships might elude you. This is a “warning” not to marry (nor form a business partnership) before February 2014 (hints Monday/Tuesday). Finances, sexual urges arise Wednesday-Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan for the next few weeks. Seek spiritual elevation, show charity (or apply for it if in need) and deal with government and large corporations. Despite weariness, you are facing a strong social, hopeful and communicative trend, and you’re still feeling romantic and feisty. Don’t wear yourself out. Sunday’s for pleasure. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday, but don’t expand your “chore role.” Relationships come front and centre Wednesday to Friday: this could bring a new partnership prospect, as well as some challenges. “Unquiet depths,” Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Social joys, popularity, optimism, light romance, entertainment and group events fill the weeks ahead. Rest Sunday. Deep romance, creativity, self-expression, adventure, beauty and pleasure (and gambler’s risks) attract you Monday/ Tuesday, but be careful, wary of your own motives. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday – and practice safety Thursday. Saturday brings relationships, but mostly in the form of challenge, snarkiness and hidden enmity. Be diplomatic, distant. Higher-ups favour you now to late November – success looms IF you avoid secrets, gossip and collusion. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead accent career, status and prestige relations. The pressure is on, higher-ups are watching, perhaps testing you – but you’ll pass. This entire ambition zone will evolve very slowly over the next three years, but it’s also buoyant, protects you, for the year and a half ahead. If seeking employment, approach government, large corporations and institutions. You legal, higher learning, cultural and far travel interests meet good luck now to late November. You’ve been socializing more than usual in October: this intensifies for three weeks, and could spark a love affair. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Now to late November, a gentle, compassionate mood slows through you. (Yes, slows – that’s a slow flow.) Higher learning, publishing, far travel, legal affairs, weddings and other cultural rituals prove satisfying, productive. These matters will move slowly for several years, but they will also be protected, beneficial. In them, you might find a doorway to your future (e.g., enter college) or a link to a great group. Your finances, investments grow nicely – or present a sweet opportunity – to late November. Bosses and parents, already testy, now get vocal – grin and bear it! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
