Bylaws

Vacant lots, land speculators vex council

The District of Maple Ridge is tackling a series of downtown issues from several fronts. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Unsecured buildings and vacant properties in Maple Ridge are concerning council, prompting bylaws and further investigation into encouraging development and discourage land speculation. At a recent council meeting, Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said he was “disappointed” development wouldn’t be taking place at the former Northumberland Court for the

foreseeable future. The former townhouse complex, notorious as a magnet for criminal activity, was shut down and demolished, and a new townhouse complex plan was given first reading by council two years ago. But, nothing has been heard from the developer since August 2011, so District staff recommended the file be closed. In the meantime, Maple Ridge council is tackling vacant buildings with increased fees for inspections. But Councillor Cheryl Ashlie also wants to see if there is anything more that can be done to discourage absentee landowners. She put forward a notice of motion at last week’s council meeting asking staff to review “all available strategies” or to

Fraser Street, Ashlie pointed out that the District still has “a hole in an area that needs to be revitalized.” The vacant and abandoned building bylaw that council dealt with this week at their committee meeting would require property owners of vacant buildings to ensure they are secured so no one can get in. If an inspector finds a building isn’t secure, the owner can be required to put up window barriers, install fencing, and post a security guard. Re-inspection fees can be imposed if the building is later found later to still be unsecured, and those fees could rise incrementally up to $2,400. The vacant/abandoned building bylaw will come to Maple Ridge council on Nov. 27.

Planning started in October and donations are already being accepted for the annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive. Macdonald Realty’s Jewel Yourchek and Royal LePage realtor Tyra Sauriol are heading up this year’s local drive, running Nov. 26 to Dec. 3.

Charity drive

Realtors blanket against cold Reaching out to those in need, Jewel Yourchek walked into a Maple Ridge seniors home asking if any of the elderly residents needed blankets. The local realtor was greeted by a surprising and resounding “no.” But what proved more shocking was that the coorganizer of the Realtors Care Blanket Drive left that same seniors facility with a car full of blankets that she would in turn give to people living on the street or facing financial hardship. Knocking on doors, reaching out to existing contacts in the community, and encouraging the involvement of other realtors in town have proved effective methods for Yourchek and Tyra Sauriol to solicit donations of all types of winter woolies for those in need. “In Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, we collect hundreds of large bags of donations, all of which stay in our community and are given to people who need them,” said Yourchek, a realtor with Macdonald

Realty. Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver is holding its annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive from Nov. 26 to Dec. 3, and this duo is heading up the local efforts trying to collect new or gently used blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothing, coats and jackets, as well as new socks, underwear, and toiletries to help the community’s most vulnerable weather the cold, wet winter. Last year, more than 300 large bags of donations were collected. The duo hopes to top 400 during this year’s drive. Locally, those donations will be distributed through the Salvation Army Caring Place and Alouette Home Start’s community outreach workers. ReMax Results, ReMax LifeStyles, Macdonald, Coldwell Banker, and Royal LePage Brookside realty offices are set up to accept donations locally, or people can find out more at www.blanketdrive.ca.

LAWYERS PERSONAL INJURY

Christmas classics and a series of special country music celebs will be weaved into Jason McCoy’s show. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

Canadian country music star Jason McCoy rolls into town later this week for an intimate show at The ACT. The 42-year-old Ontario-born recording artist is bringing with him a handful of crew members who are accompanying him on what he describes as an exciting and unique cross-country, one-man concert tour. But it’s who he’s going to connect with in Maple Ridge that has McCoy most psyched. The award-winning singer and songwriter has collaborated with Maple Ridge’s own Natasha Zimbaro in past, and is looking forward to reconnecting with his young friend when he gets to town this Saturday. After kicking off his Christmas-themed tour, The Perfect Gift, on Vancouver Island earlier this week, McCoy left behind Campbell River and Nanaimo for what he calls a home-away-from-home in Maple Ridge. “It’s a second home – in B.C.,” McCoy told The TIMES, in part because he’s performed so many Lower Mainland shows during his 25-year career as an entertainer, and because he worked so closely with the up-and-comer from Maple Ridge – who he’s convinced is on the verge of stardom. He managed and produced Zimbaro for the better part of three years. But when the local teen reconsidered her singing career, and opted to pursue pop instead of country music, the two parted ways. While they’re still friends, and talk or email frequently, it’s been more than a year and a half since they’ve seen each other. “I’m looking forward to hearing some new music from her,” McCoy said, so charged about seeing the 19-year-old Silver Valley resident that he extended a personal invitation to her family a few weeks back. Zimbaro isn’t the only special guest that McCoy has invited to join him at the Maple Ridge concert. He has a few “guys from Vegas” coming to check out the technological aspects of his “unique new concert” that will also see McCoy joined by a few of his Juno-award winning celebrity friends. The Perfect Gift concert is Saturday, Nov. 24, 8 p.m. at The ACT in Maple Ridge. Tickets are $38.50/adults, $35.50/seniors, and $15/students at www.theactmapleridge. org or at 604-476-2787.

Our View

Black day when money leaves Black Friday… Cyber Monday… cross-border shopping… everybody’s looking for the special deals that will make all those post-Christmas credit card statements just a bit easier to open. Everyone is looking for a way to get more while spending less. There’s little thought towards a longterm view – at least not much longer than the arrival of those Christmas bills in January. But the fact is, in the end, you always get what you pay for. Take your money across the border into the United States, for instance, and you may save a few bucks on a gallon of gas, some milk, dry goods, and a fresh pair of shoes. But at the same time, you’re paying for economic benefits that will be enjoyed by another country – benefits that don’t come back home to you. You may be escaping paying local, provincial, and even federal taxes… but the services that those taxes pay for will have to be paid in some other way… or cut altogether. It’s simple economics. Take your money out of Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows, and you’re paying for improvements for another community, someone else’s streets, someone else’s schools and parks, someone else’s civic services. Money spent inside the community circulates within the community, shedding benefits as it moves around. It’s been estimated that, on average, each dollar spent locally gets spent another five times before it leaves the community, supporting the local tax base, supporting local businesses, supporting locally employed residents, and ultimately supporting the entire community. Money is like economic blood. Constrict its circulation, and the economy stagnates. Remove it from the body – your community – and… need we say more? – B.G.

Taxation

Little hope in municipal audit

Dear Editor, The issue of continuous property tax increases throughout the Lower Mainland may soon be taken to task. The B.C. government has appointed a municipal auditor general. Ms. Ruta, a chartered accountant, will begin work in January 2013, aided by the BC Chamber of Commerce. The idea of having a spending watchdog overseeing municipal spending is not new. In fact, started with newspaper articles in 2006 and 2009. The base premise of the stories was comparing spending growth with population growth. Maple Ridge was not among the worst, but still a long way from the best. Maple Ridge had a population growth of 32.9 per cent and a spending growth of 53.6 per cent in the years 2000 to 2006. In 2009, the population growth was 31.1 per cent, while the spending had increased to 66.1 per cent in Maple Ridge. Our council is currently working on plans for the year 2040. This makes no sense,

given our immediate need for local jobs and tax revenue, as we have the lowest tax ratio in the Lower Mainland: eight per cent commercial and 92 per cent residential. A demographic glimpse into our region’s future shows the Lower Mainland will have a population increase of 1.192 million by 2040, giving our little community a projected population increase to 158,000. Observations over the past decades show us Maple Ridge is incapable of positive progressive growth. People continue to come. We continue to build housing, but have very few local jobs and very poor shopping. During last year’s election, every councilor elected vowed to make it a priority. To date, one year later, nothing has happened. I don’t hold much hope for the municipal auditor general. She will make some waves which newspapers will get into the stories, but in the end, nothing will change for the better –unless taxpayers vote for change in the next election. Jim Bulpit, Maple Ridge

Federal politics

Pension changers deserve credit

Dear Editor, The omnibus bill has come under criticism, but one aspect is welcome. The Conservatives are

responsible for the change to the gold-plated pensions for MPs. The Canadian Taxpayer Federation has called the move “the most

Provincial politics

Call RCMP in on dirty tricks

Dear Editor, I’m wondering where the RCMP are in this [Toxicity killing our democracy, Nov. 20 Opinion, TIMES]? Is it not illegal to use taxpayers’ money to conduct a BC Liberal Party operation? Using publicly financed computers and on our time? If it’s not, it should be. There is no excuse for this. This government has been in power for 12 years. Heads should roll. People should be fired. Charges should be laid. Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

significant reform to MP pensions we’ve seen in our 22-year history.” The age to collect is 65, up from 55 (it should be like ours, 67). Their annual contributions will rise from the current $11,000 to $39,000. Prime Minister Stephen Harper cut his own pension, giving up a minister allowance, retroactive to when he first took office. Has any other prime minister or political party even talked about making these changes, never mind implementing them? Give credit where credit is due. Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

CEED centre

Mayor’s memory deficit puzzling

Dear Editor, I do wonder what Mayor Ernie Daykin meant when he said he hasn’t had any complaints “in general” about the CEED centre [Haney man upset by neighbour, Nov. 15, TIMES]. Here is the email I sent to

him, the rest of council, and senior staff on July 9, 2012: “At 7:30 a.m. there was another fight on city-owned property at 117th and 223rd. This on top of the shouting match at 3:30 a.m. In the last month I’ve logged and photographed individuals

Foreign investment

Kamp’s ignorance showing

Dear Editor, Is Randy Kamp really that ignorant of what is going on [FIPA gives businesses confidence, Nov. 15 Letters, TIMES]? Has he missed the clearly written language contained in FIPA? He continually spouts the “Party Line.” This is a 31-year deal! This type of contract demands open and honest government. Open equals public consultation. Honest does not equal the Conservative party line. What protection? If the Chinese even feel they’ve been wronged, they can sue. China is the elephant here, and we are the ant under the elephant’s foot, we are already dead. Thanks for MP Kamp’s

service. Now would he please retire? Let someone else try to restore some semblance of sanity to our federal level of government. Chris Iversen, Maple Ridge [Note: Find more letters on this topic online at www. mrtimes.com.]

living and fighting at this city-owned property daily. On top of this, I have eight years of notes around the problems this one lot has caused. Why all of you allow, and have allowed this to go for the last eight years is disgusting. Useless signs mean nothing if this city-owned property is not secured. None of you will act, so I have no choice but to act. I do wonder where city hall’s omnipresent concern for liability has gone to, in regard to this property that is owned by the city.” I wonder, “in general,” what other correspondence the mayor is having trouble remembering. Tyler Ducharme, Maple Ridge

Bullying

Letter-writer gone off topic

Dear Editor, I read Arylene Moberg’s letter [Anti-bullying comment surprising, Nov. 13 Letters, TIMES] with shock, because my letter [Bullies murdering girl’s memories, Nov. 1 Letters, TIMES] was about Amanda Todd, not about me. I suppose I should not have been shocked, because opinion letters are just that, opinions (even if they are off topic).

The Salvation Army Caring Place Giving Hope Today

KETTLE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Welcoming our new Pastors – Josh and Jenn Ivany “We believe in the journey of people’s lives – the whole journey.” Josh and Jenn Ivany are busy people. They have three children under the age of 4 and are the new pastors at The Salvation Army’s church in Maple Ridge - The Caring Place. Both of the Ivanys come from a long line of Salvation Army officers – Josh from Canada and Jenn from the United States. They met at The Salvation Army’s War College in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. Jenn was there for two years, and Josh for one. It was during this time that they both claim that they “started walking out their faith”. Walking out in faith is the Ivanys’ foundation for their ministry here in Maple Ridge. Walking handin-hand with those who they serve and taking every step one day, one month or one year at a time. Jenn and Josh have a passion for building relationships and loving people. It is this that they bring to The Caring Place, where the Church accepts everyone, from all walks of life. They feel they offer love and hope, and that the simple act of getting to know people’s names makes a big difference to the individual. Each person that they serve at The Caring Place church is an individual with their own story to tell, and listening to that story helps to restore dignity in to people’s lives. The Salvation Army Caring Place Church has been in Maple Ridge since the early 1990s – it is made up of a core group of people who come to the Church for a variety of reasons – be it a personal history with The Salvation Army from war years, or a family history of being helped by The Salvation Army. Josh and Jenn strive to offer a Church that is contemporary in its worship that includes music and a lot of joy! Often their two sons, Liam and Aiden, can be seen dancing through the aisles to the music of the worship band, led by their father. The Ivanys consider the Church a free and safe place – a place where those in attendance can be themselves and “share what’s in your heart – sometimes it’s messy, but it’s real”. The Ivany’s have three kids at home – Aiden - who’s 3, Liam - who’s 2 and Sadie - who’s 3 months. Being new officers to The Salvation Army as well as to Maple Ridge, the Ivanys say that the existing Church community has been supportive and faithful to The Salvation Army. “I am continually amazed at their acceptance and love,” says Jenn. Since coming to The Caring Place, the Ivanys have been getting to know the people from the Church and meeting with other pastors in the community. If you are interested in meeting the Ivanys and seeing what The Caring Place Church has to offer, you are encouraged to come to Jam & Bread on Wednesdays at 1:30pm, where you can enjoy music, spirituality and food. If breakfast is more your speed, Josh hosts a Seniors Breakfast on Wednesday mornings at 9:00am at the Home Restaurant on Lougheed Highway. Or you can come and join us for Sunday worship at 11:00am on Sunday mornings. Also on Sundays, your children can join the Ivany children at Sunday School for snacks, worship and fun!

T

hrifty Foods annual Food For Families food drive began recently with a goal to provide fresh food to 16 food banks including the Friends In Need Food Bank. The program provides customers with the option of adding a $5, $10, or $20 Food For Families gift voucher to their grocery order, funds that are then transformed into fresh groceries for those in need in the community. In 2011, the Food For Families fundraiser provided $206,000 to local food banks and has provided more than $800,000 since the program began.

Gail Springer made sure the Mayor of Pitt Meadows Deb Walters received her poppy, launching the campaign that raised more than $62,000.

Poppy campaign

Vets benefit from generosity

Scouts and cadets joined legion members in collecting donations for local veterans.

Raising more than $62,000, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents have exceeded last year’s donations to the poppy campaign. Hundreds of hours of poppy tagging took place in the two communities between Oct. 27 and Nov. 11, with Royal Canadian Legion Branch 88 members doing the lion’s share of the work. But there were also sea cadets, army cadets, and air cadets who collected donations, said Royal Canadian Legion Branch

88 president Jim MacDonald. In addition, for the first time the St. John Ambulance cadets put in 22 hours, as did the 1st Laity View Scout troop. Every year, businesses also have trays for poppy donations, and this year 124 businesses participated. For the first year, people were out collecting donations on the two Sundays before Nov. 11, as well as at the Maple Ridge cenotaph and near the legion an hour ahead of Monday’s Remembrance Day parade and services. “We truly do live in a fantastic community,” MacDonald said of the generosity. Earlier this week, the total money counted was $62,089 with a few more dollars trickling in.

Handmade arts

Guild of weavers offers seasonal gifts

The 32nd annual show by local fibre artists takes place this Sunday in Whonnock. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

L

ast week, a group of women well versed in fibre arts spent the morning carefully examining a few thousand pieces of handiwork. As the Whonnock Weavers and Spinners prepared for their 32nd annual fall open house and sale, the guild members were making sure no flaws would be included in the items that will be on sale on Nov. 25 at Whonnock Lake Centre. Because they’re putting their name, Whonnock Weavers, on the items, they need to ensure they are good quality, said guild member Dale Friend. There will be handwoven blankets, scarves, shawls, towels, and rugs, as well as felted pieces like bags, hats, cat toys, Christmas ornaments, mittens, and slippers. For people who like to create their own fibre arts, there will be skeins of handspun yarn. None of the guild members make a living with their art, Friend said. It’s more for fun that they continue to spin, weave, knit, and create objects, some practical, some whimsical, some just decorative, with fibre.

“You probably start selling because you don’t have any more room,” Friend said. But some pieces are too precious to sell – at least right away. “There’s a couple pieces personally that aren’t for sale until I make something similar so I can bear to part with it,” Friend said. “I think we all have things we can’t bear to part with.” The annual show attracts between 300 and 400 visitors, and the guild members sell up to three-quarters of their pieces. Guest artists who don’t use fibre in their art also take part, and this year there will be woodwork, glass art, and pottery for sale. Guild members will also demonstrate how they make their fibre arts, for example, spinning, carding, felting, and basket weaving. There will be holiday refreshments including a large selection of teas, coffee, and home baked treats, as well as door prizes. There is no admission to open house and sale that takes place on Nov. 25 at Whonnock Lake Centre, 27871 113th Ave. from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A family love of ornaments and the holidays led Linda Carter and her family to share a table at last weekend’s craft fair at Harry Hooge Elementary. Meanwhile, 12-year-old painter Cassandra Joyce (below) has been creating cat art since August, based on her own cat, Wilbur. She had her creations at the same craft fair.

Family law

New collaborative approach makes for healthier families by Adrienne Dale

Adrienne Dale is a senior lawyer with Becker & Company Lawyers, who practised law in South Africa. Send questions to: info@beckerlawyers.ca

I

n one of my recent articles [Trends continuing to grow in family dispute resolution, Oct. 25, TIMES], we looked at the various Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options for family law matters. With the new Family Law Act (FLA) coming into effect in early 2013 and placing a new emphasis on out of court settlements, family law lawyers are now required to shift into a different gear for handling these matters. In this final article in a three-part series, let’s explore the benefits of the collaborative law approach. This model depends on good-faith negotiations, the sharing of confidential information, and a commitment by lawyers and law firms to withdraw should negotiations fail. It is a very effective means to dealing with family disputes. Both parties should select lawyers who practise collaborative law, or insist that both lawyers agree to make every effort to reach a fair-negotiated settlement. Working together, these lawyers will assess the parties’ legal and emotional needs and work cooperatively to find a fair settlement for their clients. The process is multi-disciplinary, thereby allowing for the inclusion of other professionals such as child/educational psychologists, family counsellors, divorce counsellors, life coaches, and other relevant advisers. This team guides the parties, and any children involved, through the separation and divorce process. The goal is to promote and support healthy, productive, well-functioning post-divorce families through immediate life changes and provide a workable platform for the future. Success requires a commitment by all parties, clients and lawyers, to reach a fair resolution outside of the

Cat discount offered

BC SPCA shelters, including Maple Ridge, are offering feline adoptions at half price. For a limited time, the SPCA shelter in Maple Ridge is offering reduced fees in an attempt to boost cat adoptions. Typically, by this time of year, there are no kittens in the local shelter. But local shelter manager Mark Vosper described it as a late season, noting there are about 30 kittens, on top of the typical 30 to 35 cats, at the shelter or in foster care this month. Consequently, the BC SPCA is holding a special adoption promotion for cats and kittens from Nov. 26 to Dec. 9, offering 50 per cent off all feline adoption fees. Vosper is optimistic the SPCA can find loving homes for many of these local felines.

into common-law relationships, are strongly advised to record their current and future intentions in a co-habitation agreement. Similarly, parties may enter into marriage agreements prior to their weddings. These agreements can address future intentions for pensions, RRSPs, spousal support, and payment of child support for stepchildren in the event of the breakup of the relationship. It may also identify “excluded property.” The act requires parties entering into such agreements to make a full, frank and honest disclosure and to agree on issues that are in the best interests of any children. If these criteria are met, the courts will uphold your agreement and will strictly bind the parties and will only set aside agreements if the terms prove to be “significantly unfair.” Avoid family conflict and consider preparing a carefully drafted agreement, including a clause that allows the parties to use ADR in the event of a dispute. - This is the final part of a three-part series by Adrienne Dale.

SLEEP Stem Cell SNORING?APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. 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 #23 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 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.

Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are #63 even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage. Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator:!Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB ! All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening.

court system. If a resolution cannot be achieved, then both parties must seek alternative counsel to represent them. Instead of exchanging adversarial court pleadings, lawyers will correspond with each other in a collegial and cooperative manner, which often includes a four-way, round-table meeting. Each party can discuss issues privately with their lawyers in another room before returning to the table to resume negotiations. Another important aspect of the new act has far reaching implications for property division and debt allocations for all couples. It brings common-law relationships squarely in line with those of married couples. In British Columbia, same-sex marriages are treated in the same way as heterosexual marriages. It will now be presumed that property owned by the parties is “family property” to be shared equally. Similarly, any debt that has been incurred for a family purpose will be shared equally.

Archery

Local marksman talks turkey shoot Turkey shoot

A Maple Ridge resident who is passionate about archery is promoting his club’s annual turkey shoot this Sunday. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Franco Longo received a bow as a Christmas gift from his wife Linda and their two sons back in 1999. “It came with a couple of arrows, so I figured he’d open it, get really happy, shoot it once or twice, and that would be the end of it,” Linda recalled. Little did Linda know at the time, the hobby turned into a passion for her husband. “It snowballed,” she said. Longo currently owns a handful of bows and is a member in good standing with the B.C. Archery Association, and the B.C. Wildlife Federation. He has turned his sloped backyard into an archery range, where he practises his accuracy on an array of 3D targets. He sits on the executive of the Maple Ridge Archery Club and holds the position of 3D director with the club. He is also a “pro staff shooter” for a Canadian archery company called APA Innovations in Biggar, Sask. Longo regularly attend 3D shoots held by local archery clubs in the Lower Mainland. These shoots vary from flat field 3D’s, to 3D’s on more rugged ter-

During these competitions, Longo consistently places in the top three in his category, and he competes at the provincial and national level. From 2003 to 2006 Longo took on the role of publicity chair for the B.C. Archery Association – at the time he was responsible for fundraising and obtaining sponsorship for the BCAA Junior Olympian Program (JOP). Archery is a natural fit for the 52-year-old Longo, who has hunted since he was nine years old. “My uncle was a hunter, and my dad hunted when he first came to Vancouver,” Longo said. He now hunts with a rifle as

well as a bow, and in August 2006 completed the International Bowhunter Education Program. “I have received three bowhunter pins through the British Columbia Archery Association, one for a blacktail deer, two wild boar, and one for an elk,” Longo said. The challenge drew him into archery. “I enjoy it because I’m a hunter,” Longo said, noting that he completed a course on how to ethically kill an animal with a crossbow. “It’s easier to kill an animal with a rifle than it is with a bow. With a bow you have to get up real close.”

This Sunday (Nov. 25) the Maple Ridge Archery Club is hosting a turkey shoot inside the Beef Barn at the Maple Ridge Fairgrounds. It’s the club’s largest fundraiser, with all money raised going towards its JOP. All shooters are welcome, with their own equipment, however, no binoculars or rangefinders are allowed. There will be a concession stand, 50/50 draw, many door prizes, and turkeys to be given away. Start time is 9 a.m. The final scorecard is issued at 1 p.m. Cost to take part is $7. An extra mulligan is $1. “It’s a fun shoot,” Longo said. “Plus there’s probably $1,000 worth of door prizes that we are giving out as well.” While the turkey shoot has been around since the 1980s, the Maple Ridge Archery Club started operations around 1955 and currently has 60 members. The late Marj Saunders was among the early club members and competed for Canada in the Munich Olympics in 1972. The turkey shoot has been canceled twice, both due to snow and freezing weather. No such risk this year, with the event being held indoors. For anyone interested, the Maple Ridge Archery Club holds “try it” nights, and provides equipment.

Basketball

Ramblers, past and present, put skills on display by Katie Macleod

Special to The TIMES

Music from the 1980s filled the Ken Dockendorf Gymnasium at Maple Ridge Secondary this Saturday, as the Ramblers basketball program celebrated its history by hosting alumni from the 1980s through to last year’s graduates of 2012. This year’s tournament was extra special, as the event is now named after Rambler legend Dean Adams, who passed away three years ago this past weeeknd. Dean Adams was a member of the 1989 team that played in the BC final, and one of the best teams legendary coach Ken Dockendorf

has coached. Alumni welcomed back Adams’ former teammates from 1989, Rob Forsyth and Bryan Kinney, who joined the “Ol’ Cats” team of alumni from the 1980s and 1990s. Chris Schriek and Dean Barbour from the 1986 B.C. champions played alongside Dan Glavind from 1983 and Ryan Sedore from 1992. Jeff O’Brien, Dave Sambol, and Rob Swift from last year’s tournament champions returned, and were joined by brothers Scott and Dan Lyster. These grads supplemented their roster with future grads of 2016 Maaz Amir, Daniel Fakaro, and Brandon Williams, and they went undefeated.

The group personified exactly what this tournament is about: the past connecting with the future, playing together, and learning from each other. Rambler single-game scoring record holder Clayton Heuring returned to play with his fellow grads of 2003-2004, Brian Smith and Lloyd Greene. Although their high school playing days ended almost 10 years ago, these guys can still play, and put on a post clinic for the current Ramblers who were in the gym scorekeeping and soaking it all in. BChan Eun and Brandon Stephenson joined this group, who provided many moments of laughter and inspiration.

The Rambler grads of 2008 are regulars in Doc’s Gym, and MRSS was thrilled to have Chris Barber, Jamal Caines-Walker, Clayton Gamble, Sean Houlihan, Sam Oliver, and Aiden Pare playing again this year. The ’08s were joined by Rambler 2012 grad Max Neumann, who took the weekend off from his new team at the University of Alberta to return for the weekend. The latest graduates from 2009-2012, who remain actively involved with the program, coaching and playing with current Ramblers’ teams, were finalists in this year’s tournament. • More online at www.mrtimes, click on “Sports”

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead feature work, though some “heart memory” of an attraction remains to relieve any drudgery. (It’s might be more than relief: a relationship could blossom into romantic intensity.) Recent delays end Monday, so you can move forward, start new projects and relationships, and give promises, especially in the zones of work, machinery, health and dependents. Your optimism, popularity and happiness rise Sunday to Tuesday. Retreat, rest midweek. Your energy and charisma move upward Friday (challenges) and Saturday (success!). Be wary of an ambitious partnership early week. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A month of increased romance, (good) risk, lucky speculation, creativity and self-expression, pleasure and beauty has just begun. Threaded through all this pleasure will be various chores (legal, intellectual, writing chores?) and domestic demands. Don’t neglect these, as they might, oddly enough, prove supportive to your romantic, creative (etc.) interests. Avoid new starts through Tuesday afternoon. This day needs care with machinery, work, exertion. Happiness strikes midweek! Social joys, romance, popularity arrive; wishes come true. Retreat, rest and plan, Friday/ Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weekly accent lies on home, kids, real estate, security, sales territory, retirement, nutrition, garden/farm, basement, landscape, and your foundations in career and love. Recent delays end Monday, though indecision lingers for a week or two. By Wednesday you can start mildly significant projects in career or more significant ones in home areas, real estate, etc. Your career project might be in real estate (etc.) or you might end one job/career, to make room for a new one. If you are in a romance, the weeks ahead intensify it – and your courage. The physical side grows hot.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Many barriers, disruptions and sudden new conditions have assaulted you over the last several years. The weeks ahead bring a gentle, wise view of these “assaults of fortune.” You’ll understand, you’ll see society and its ways and your place in it. You’ll see your journey thus far, and the potential forward directions. By late December you’ll be mentally and spiritually refreshed, ready to charge the ramparts of ambition once again. Meanwhile, love, travel, learning and culture fill your days. Monday ends sexual, financial delays. Protect reputation Tuesday. Home succeeds Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Recent delays end Monday – you can confidently make new plans and/or start new projects. The weeks ahead emphasize depths, mysteries, intimacy, “treasures,” commitment and consequence. You might march into a more significant bonding with someone you met in late October (or someone who returned to your life in November) – this can involve love or business, friends or “your audience.” Pursue money these weeks (Wednesday important) – you face a very lucky potential here. Your energy and charisma soar early week – start something! Trips, communications hard Friday, easy Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Recent delays end Monday afternoon, so step forward, start projects, or make relationship overtures (in love and business). The weeks ahead feature many meetings, new people, fresh horizons and new opportunities. You might relocate, sign or negotiate a contract (most likely, a work/service agreement) or meet a new attractive person who challenges, unsettles you, but could be your “right partner.” Rest, lie low Sunday to Tuesday eve. A financial, health or sexual matter reaches a hopeful (but lucky?) climax Tuesday. Your energy, charisma climb midweek. Good money moves Saturday.

Nov. 25 - Dec. 1, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be gentle on the home front, reduce temper and impatience, until late December. A young child might be colicky. This interval will strain a weak love, marriage or business alliance. It can also bring a real estate oriented ���partnership.” Monday ends November’s delays, but DON’T invest nor make a commitment before Tuesday night. Love, wisdom, travel, higher learning and culture draw you midweek – act Wednesday. Friday frustrates career initiatives; Saturday helps you succeed (in career, status, dealings with authorities). The weeks ahead emphasize travel, communications, friends. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Recent delays end Monday – but wait until Tuesday night, Wednesday to initiate any important action. Midweek favours investments, financial rearrangements, research, lifestyle changes and physical intimacy. Friday/ Saturday bring a broad, gentle outlook, possible love, certainly mellowness, wisdom. You’ll meet barriers and opposite opinions Friday, sweet congress and success Saturday. This week and the next few present you with money opportunities – seek new clients and/or a pay raise, buy/sell items, and chase a sensual person. December features more talk than action at workplace. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness will ride a year-high wave, until late December. Recent hold-backs dissolve. (Still, start nothing new – especially at work – before Tuesday night.) Early week brings health, work concerns. Chase relationships, make your claim, seize opportunities, advance toward a fresh new horizon – all Wednesday. You might start something which will have a big ending. Be diplomatic, as the lucky “other person” might be argumentative, cheeky. Take care with investments, health, secrets and sexual urges Friday – these matters succeed Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Retreat during the weeks ahead. Rest, study, plan, rejuvenate your health, dress and eat sensibly. Be charitable, spiritual. Approach civil servants, institutions and corporate head offices – they favour you to late December. Your management and executive skills will be obvious. Sunday/Monday are romantic, but don’t start a new relationship. A major development might occur in home or real estate Sunday to Tuesday: reject cruelty. Tackle chores midweek – new or difficult ones Wednesday, routine ones Thursday. Exciting relationships irk you Friday, please you Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Recent delays end Monday – but start nothing before Tuesday night. Be restful Sunday through Tuesday daytime: be at home, sleep, eat well, do domestic chores – in general, prepare yourself for imminent action. Which arrives Wednesday, as major romance, friendship, a creative surge or an adventurous or speculative streak propels you to reward. Tackle chores safely (and drive safely) Friday/Saturday. Save your harder chores for Saturday – don’t even start them Friday. The weeks ahead feature social delights, optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance – avoid belligerent people. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Recent delays end Monday, Pisces, but don’t start anything new before Tuesday night. The weeks ahead feature ambition, career, prestige relations – make a mark in the world! Now to late December, money wishes will come true. You might deal with an assertive friend (if you’re female, with a testosterone-laden male). Sunday/Monday bring errands, casual friends and communications. You can lay an excellent “floor” under your projects Wednesday, or make great strides in home, garden, with kids. What’s started this day will grow. Passion’s frustrated Friday, rewarded Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
