Pitt pumps a drain on funds One of the local pumps, which has a lifespan of 20 years, is about eight decades old. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Pitt Meadows council was shown pictures Tuesday of the flood damage caused in 2005 near the McKechnie Road pump station.

Tracy Miyashita Pitt Meadows councillor

Pitt Meadows pumps and culverts are aging faster than the City can replace them, and millions are needed to upgrade the antiquated drainage infrastructure. According to a report circulated at Tuesday afternoon’s council-in-committee meeting, the estimated replacement cost of the City’s drainage infrastructure ranges between $49.5 and $52.4 million. The report outlined the two biggest challenges. First is how to spread those costs over the long-term to make it more manageable. The other challenge is to build up reserves to reduce the need for borrowing and grants. In the meantime, City council was told

the aging infrastructure is driving up operating costs, significantly. The older the equipment, the more maintenance it requires, explained Kim Grout, the City’s operations director. “All of the pumps and major pump station electrical systems – in all of these catchments – are reaching the end of their useful life and need constant maintenance,” she said, noting that 20 years is the appropriate lifespan for a pump and 25 years is the lifespan for major electrical components. The oldest of the pump stations is in the Pitt Polder area. That one is between 72 and 82 years old. It’s estimated it will cost between $4.9 and $7.4 million dollars to replace. Grout warned that if the City defers this project in order to wait for a grant, then the City will need to immediately do $250,000 of maintenance to the pump station. Councillor Tracy Miyashita said spending $250,000 on the pump “sounds like a Band-Aid solution.”

Courts

Multiple cellphones lit up rave sex, witness says The porn distribution trial against a Maple Ridge man continues in January. by Jennifer Saltman

Special to The TIMES

When partygoers at a Pitt Meadows rave heard that two people were having sex in a field, a crowd quickly gathered and the cellphones and cameras came out. “There was everybody just taking pictures and videotaping it,” Paige Morgan, 19, testified Tuesday in B.C. Provincial Court in Port Coquitlam. Morgan was called as a witness at the trial of 21-year-old Dennis Warrington, who is charged with publishing and distributing child pornography. Warrington is accused of posting to his Facebook page photos others took of sexual acts that took place between a 16-year-old

girl and a young man at an outdoor rave in 2010. It is alleged that the acts, which did not include intercourse, were not consensual. He did not know the girl. Morgan went to the rave with friends at around 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 10, 2010. She was sober when she arrived, but she and her friends shared two bottles of vodka over the course of the evening as they socialized. She said she knew most of the people at the party from school and from other events. As Morgan and her friends stood outside a barn where a DJ was playing music, a male came up and told them that someone was “having sex with a guy pretty much in the bush.” They went over and joined the crowd of onlookers. So many people were taking pictures – including four older men who were close to the couple – that the flashes were “like lightning.”

TIMES files

A property on Harris Road in Pitt Meadows was the scene of a 2010 rave that has led to accusations of sexual assault and porn distribution. The latter case is now in the courts. “Everyone was getting pictures of it,” Morgan said. Morgan said she just took a brief look at what was happening: “I wasn’t looking the entire time. It was kind of disturbing.” Soon after she walked up, the sex acts ended, Morgan said. The girl got up, dressed and

walked away laughing and looking happy, according to Morgan’s police statement. Morgan said the couple were not trying to hide what they were doing and it was her impression the sex acts were consensual, based on watching and listening to the couple.

Morgan said she and her friends left the party a short time later and went to McDonald’s. At the restaurant she saw the girl from the party. She said the girl was upset because she had lost her cellphone, but otherwise “she seemed happy and like nothing was wrong.” A few days after the rave Morgan saw a photo of the girl – engaged in oral sex – on someone’s Facebook page. Morgan said photos were going around from a number of sources. One of Morgan’s friends, Brittany Plamondon, was with her at the party. Plamondon is a friend of the young woman who was photographed. She said she briefly saw what happened between the two as she left the party. Her attention was drawn to it because people were laughing. “It wasn’t something I wanted to watch,” she said. The trial continues in January.

Minister affirms recycling jobs program A Rotary luncheon featured a provincial minister and longtime community volunteer. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A program that employs 29 developmentally disabled people at the recycling depot will continue as long as the depot wants them. This was the message from Stephanie Cadieux, who was Minister of Social Development in charge of overseeing the agency that funded the program, before she was moved two months ago to the Minister of Children and Family Development portfolio. Cadieux said she has spoken with the current minister responsible for Community Living BC (CLBC), Moira Stilwell, and she

feels Stilwell is “committed” to keeping the program, as well. When CLBC let the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society know they were planning to cut the program because they wanted “real jobs” for the 29 developmentally disabled people, “they had lost sight of some of their core values,” Cadieux told the audience at a Meadow Ridge Rotary luncheon on Tuesday. In their effort to stretch dollars, the individuals working at Ridge Meadows Recycling Deport were affected negatively, Cadieux said, adding that the employees will have jobs there as long as the society wants them to be working there. Cadieux spoke at the Rotary luncheon to a full room, speaking about the provincial government’s jobs plan, and how it will help to provide for families, and how the government needs to ensure there are the best oppor-

tunities to have jobs.

Meals on Wheels serves food to 100 seniors from Pitt Meadows to the eastern reaches of Maple Ridge. To support the meal program, country singer Rob Hess is producing the annual Country Christmas Benefit Concert at The ACT – for the 10th year running. The annual concert raises much needed funding for the meal program, and last year’s total was close to $10,000. “It’s a critical part of funding Meals on Wheels,” said Joanne Leginus with Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Community Services. Twenty-two volunteers deliver the meals, and many are seniors themselves. “Many of our seniors live alone and look forward to the visit from the volunteer,” Leginus said. In addition to being a friendly visit, the meal delivery is also a safety check, and if a senior doesn’t answer their door, the volunteer gets in touch with emergency contacts to make sure he or she is alright. Some seniors receive meals daily, others a few times a week, and still others get extra frozen meals on Fridays to tide them over the weekend. The meals, which are made at the seniors centre, are as low-cost as possible, Leginus said, but they also take into consideration dietary needs. Tickets to the concert are $14 each. Before the concert and until 3 p.m., a silent auction will be held in the lobby as

Designated drivers

Volunteers offer drinkers and cars home safe

Starting Saturday, Nov. 30, the local Operation Red Nose team will be providing safe rides home every weekend through December. Story and photo by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

The weather isn’t the only thing that can be frightful this time of year. The idea of a drunk person operating a rolling 4,000pound piece of metal on local roads is even scarier. Volunteers with Operation Red Nose (ORN) and the people who take advantage of the designated driver service can help to alleviate that fear. ORN Ridge-Meadows offers safe ride homes for motorists who don’t feel fit to drive. Volunteers work in teams of three: a driver, escort, and navigator. Phone operators take details from a client and these are dispatched to available teams, said ORN manager Linda Palm, who noted that all calls received up to 3 a.m. will be processed to completion. Accompanied by navigators, drivers take clients and their vehicles home, with escort drivers following behind in their own cars. The ORN service will be available on the following days: Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, and 31. ORN Ridge-Meadows is a fundraiser for the host organization, PacificSport Fraser Valley, which coordinates the service not only in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, but also in Abbotsford and Mission. PacificSport provides initiatives to increase sport participation and also delivers programs and services for promising athletes and developing coaches. ORN Ridge-Meadows offers a fundraising opportunity to local sport teams and organizations, which provide volunteers for the road teams. Fifteen shifts over nine nights could equate into $500 in donations. To learn about how to volunteer or for more information, call 604-746-0601.

If the world starts getting a little wobbly, it’s definitely time to hand the car keys over to Rudy and the Operation Red Nose volunteers. Palm has been involved with the program for the past 12 years. She has volunteered in every capacity with ORN, and said feedback from party goers receiving a safe ride home is almost always overwhelmingly positive. “They talk about it all the way home in the vehicle and repeat the fact that they think it’s a wonderful service and such a good thing to do for the community,” Palm said.

“Without question, people think it’s a marvellous service. They want to get their car home, because they may need it the next morning.” Last year in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, ORN provided 430 safe rides, and a total of 1,209 since the start of the program in 2008. The target of this campaign is to provide 500 safe rides home for revelers. But to be among those who will receive the service this year, your vehicle must be suitable for driving in inclement weather. ORN’s team of volunteers will inspect the vehicle to make sure it’s safe for the road. “Our volunteers are trained to check each car, make sure the insurance is up-to-date, and check for damage [before driving it],” Palm said. “We have the phone operators inquire about the condition of the client’s vehicle’s tires,” she added. “If we know [clients’ vehicles] just have summer tires or old all-season tires, we suggest they get another ride home because we don’t want to put our volunteers in harm’s way.” ORN will operate, so long as the roads are reasonable and sanding trucks are out, and the escort driver’s vehicle is suitable for winter driving. As for the iconic Rudy the Reindeer, ORN’s unmistakable mascot, whenever he’s out and about at pubs and parties, he gets lots of attention, Palm said. ORN Ridge-Meadows offers a transfer service throughout the Lower Mainland, except for Vancouver. Two new communities, Burnaby and New Westminster, have been added to the transfer service this year. Anyone wanting to use the service locally, can call 604-515-NOSE (6673).

elcome again to week #5 of In The Zone Fitness’ 10 week fitness challenge. My name is Ania Glowacka and I am a BCRPA certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist at In The Zone Fitness in the heart of Pitt Meadows. Participating in the challenge is Ralph DeAdder, an advertising consultant for the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Times newspaper and very busy father of two who even with a very limited schedule, has decided to take his health into his own hands. With week five upon us, our sessions have now become an integrated part of Ralph’s routine, and he looks forward to each training session as oppose to finding them daunting. This week’s focus was to increase the weights Ralph was using with each exercise, not only to challenge him further, but to test his awareness and ability of proper form: an aspect needed to achieve maximum benefits and prevent injury. As anticipated, Ralph was not only able to increase the weights used and hold proper form, but he was also able correct his form if it deviated. With re-

gards to his cardio, Ralph continued to improve overall by catching his breath more efficiently which decreased his recovery time between sets. Though overall this week Ralph made improvements in his workouts, he did notice that he felt an overall fatigue. He attributed it to his children being sick leaving him to feel as though he was fighting it off as well. However, the fatigue did not cause him to cancel a session, or stop him from giving it his all. He was happy to say that he had noticed an overall energy increase throughout his every day routine since beginning the challenge. He was also happy to report that he had been tightening up his belt a few notches more throughout the past weeks, an aspect he found very motivational towards continuing to reach his goals. He was very much looking forward to next week’s weigh in and measurements knowing all his hard work would show. Please join us again next week for the next installment of Ralph’s progress through week 6!

Our View

Report casts light on future Many voters, who are taxpayers as well, but should remember they are citizens above all, are often worried about their next property tax bill, the potholes on their street, or the lack of buses – or further reduction of bus service – because that is what is causing them angst today. And local politicians hear about these concerns regularly and try to balance immediate needs within budgetary constraints, but they are also thinking about long-term growth and development – where we are going to be working, living, and playing in 30 years. The year 2042 is an abstract concept for many of us, but it appeared on the cover of a recent report that came to Maple Ridge council: Commercial & Industrial Strategy: 2012-2042. Apparently, there are going to be a lot more people in Maple Ridge in 2042, maybe even 30,000 more local jobs. The District’s job – and that of those bearing the title of “planners” – is to plan well for the future, to make sure there’s enough space to shop and enough space for facilities where people can be employed. The report that came to council, done by land economists G.P. Rollo & Associates, is the first step in this planning process. Next it will be parsed and studied. And then the public will be asked to comment. What do we want our community to look like in 2042? Where do we want growth? Where is the best place to have employment centres? What will enhance our quality of life? After the public comments on the commercial and industrial strategy, the politicians will be asked to make wise, informed decisions about the future growth of Maple Ridge. All citizens should let their voices be heard during this process – if not for us, then for our children and grandchildren who will be around in 2042.

MP Randy Kamp

FIPA explanation falls short

Dear Editor, Randy Kamp aimed to explain the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) with China in more detail [FIPA gives businesses confidence, Nov. 15 Letters, TIMES]. His comments did not adequately address Canadians’ concerns. Prime MInister Stephen Harper has signed a deal with China behind closed doors. His government has accused Enbridge dissenters of being enemies of Canada, slashed environmental protections, and flooded the media with pro-pipeline advertisements. But Canadians are catching on. FIPA is about the exploitation of Canada’s resources by foreign corporations. In his letter to The TIMES, Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission MP Kamp presented FIPA as a means of protecting Canadian investors in China. But is there a shred of credibility involved in locking Canada into a 31-year trade deal, which will ultimately give control of our resources to a foreign country whose human rights record is abysmal, with no interest in the well-being of Canada, its people, or the protection of the Canadian environment – a country currently involved in trade disputes with other coun-

tries. Although FIPA may include “language on transparency of dispute proceedings,” that is not a guarantee that rule of law and Canadian values are protected. No amount of “language on transparency of dispute settlement proceedings” or providing the public with open access to “dispute resolution” could have any effect in protecting Canadian interests once FIPA is ratified. How disingenuous of the Harper government to allow Canadians “open” access to information after the deal is finalized! The Harper government has not been “open” with the Canadian people about FIPA. There needs to be democratic parliamentary debate before the agreement. Afterwards, there will be nothing Canada can do to effectively protect its interests. MP Kamp did not explain why the Conservative government would deny parliamentary debate on this very important issue. Open democratic debate would help Canadians determine if these “deals” are indeed in Canada’s best interests.

Pitt Meadows airport

Lease rate increase mind-blowing

Dear Editor, I have just received information regarding Pacific Skydivers and their lease with Pitt Meadows Airport. Apparently, the Airport Society has decided to increase their lease for the area of grass used for skydivers to land to $53,058 plus property taxes of $9,456, to a total of $62,514 – a 2,500 per cent increase. It is mind-blowing. What

business could ever sustain that sort of rent increase? And this is just for their landing area. Aside from the rental amount, how in the world do they justify an increase in property taxes to almost $10,000? The entire airport’s property taxes last year were $142,000. Is that small area almost seven per cent of the airport property?

Court

Pornography laws misused

Dear Editor, Please help put an end to the betrayal of all sense of reason [‘Everyone was getting pictures’ of rave sex, witness says, Nov. 28, www.mrtimes.com]. Unquestionably, prosecuting someone who is only barely an adult for re-posting photos of third-party consensual acts taken in a public setting is not what the child pornography laws were intended to address. I hope the political or career motivations of those perpetrating the destruction of a young man’s life (to say nothing of the legal costs incurred) allow them to sleep at night. A far better use of system resources would be to slap the wrists of the RCMP and anyone crying “Wolf!” Or must truth and reason always lose out to hyperbole and distorted political correctness these days? Mark Schultz, Maple Ridge

If Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have any intention of attracting and growing businesses and tourism, why would they allow the Airport Society to proceed this way? Pacific Skydivers is an important part of the economy of the area. In business there for more than 20 years, its staff and owners have bought property and homes in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, to be close to work. It supports local businesses – fuel purchases, aircraft repairs, local pubs, and restaurants. It attracts tourism and potential residents to the area. People from all over Metro Vancouver come to do tandem jumps for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions: they get to see our community and what it has to offer from the land and the air. Why would we do anything to jeopardize that? The situation at the airport and the Airport Society needs some close scrutiny. Drew Allan, Maple Ridge

Maple Ridge

Social safety net extended too far

Dear Editor, “Build it and they will come.” Such is what I and many others have witnessed in the downtown core in recent years. The more shelters, transition houses, etc. we provide, the more people come. Maple Ridge’s downtown is being turned into a rural equivalent of the Downtown Eastside. Residents, seniors, and those who want to use the area deserve better. But first our council has to acknowledge there is a problem. Citizens are not writing to the papers, to the District, and attending council meetings because they have nothing better to do. People like Mr. Ducharme [Mayor’s memory deficit puzzling, Nov. 22 Letters, TIMES] are trying to make a point: our community is in trouble. We care about our community, and our

mayor and council need to take action. We need a review of the multitude of agencies providing social support. Are they all required? Are there adequate controls over who is using the system? Are there adequate controls within the agencies to ensure the tax funds are used properly? We cannot afford not to take action. The cost to taxpayers and society is already too high. To pretend it does not exist by demonizing citizens who are willing to stand up and be counted is unsatisfactory.

Christmas

Two actors, one story

A comical version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol takes place just before the Santa Claus Parade.

Ryan Gladstone is one of two actors who will stage A Christmas Carol at The ACT this Saturday.

Claus Parade in downtown Maple Ridge. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens was first published as a novella in 1843. The story tells of a mean-spirited, miserly old man, Ebenezer Scrooge’s ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visits of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. The play is put on by

Monster Theatre on Dec. 1 just before the Christmas festivities, and is recommended for ages five and up. A Christmas Carol is at The ACT on Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. Tickets start at $13, and a family four-pack is $45. Tickets are available in person at The ACT Ticket Centre, by calling 604-476-2787, or at www. theactmapleridge.org.

Opening night for a soldout show had to be saved, after all, but one actor quit the show. The result is a comical take on Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Not wanting to refund the tickets for a soldout opening night, the curmudgeonly producer declares that the show must go on. The lone remaining cast member, not wanting to disappoint the throngs of children with their moms and dads who have filled the theatre, agrees to help out. Together, they take to the stage and perform the entire play themselves. Monster Theatre’s production features more than 50 characters, puppets, songs, dance numbers, and flying ghosts, all performed by just two actors. The play, written by and featuring Ryan Gladstone and Maple Ridge’s Tara Travis takes place at The ACT just before the Santa

Charity

Food bank coffers fill up over holidays Parade watchers traditionally give food and donations to the food bank during the Santa Claus Parade.

PItt Meadows flooded in 2005.

Volunteers Vivian Anderson and John Gardner were bagging rice the food bank received from the “angel” Kevin MacNeil (centre). Food bank executive director Joanne Olson and volunteer Tasia Nikkolopoulos (inset) were checking out the hampers at the Friends In Need Food Bank warehouse.

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Christmas time is when people are feeling most generous – and this is the time of year when the Friends In Need Food Bank normally receives the most donations, enough, they hope, to tide them over till June. There are large fundraisers like the CP Holiday Train event, and the Firefighters for Families collection that brings in large amounts of food and cash. The Santa Claus Parade this weekend is one of the bigger events and parade watchers are asked to bring non-perishable food items and cash for the food bank. But there are smaller events by businesses and community groups, and collections at all schools in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows that also help to fill the warehouse of the Friends In Need facility on 226th Street. Donations of cans of food and packages of nonperishable items number in the thousands, and these are sorted into hampers that food bank clients receive monthly. But the cash donations help the food bank pay for their overhead, from rent to electricity to gas. And if they have to buy food, the food bank can

stretch the dollars they receive usually twofold. “We’re hoping to get enough food and funds to last us till June,” Olson said, adding that last year between December and January, they received $70,000 in donations. The firefighters will be out on Dec. 15 for their annual Firefighters for Families event, collecting food, toys, and cash donations at 12 locations. Olson said the firefighters’ contribution is huge. “They don’t get enough recognition for that,” Olson said. The food and half the cash from Firefighters for Families goes to the Friends In Need Food Bank, and the toys and half the cash goes to the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society. The CP Holiday Train is coming to Maple Ridge on Tuesday, Dec. 18. This is another fundraiser for Friends In Need and the community is

invited to bring food and cash to the event that takes place at the Port Haney West Coast Express Station. Other groups organize events during the Christmas season, benefitting the Friend In Need Food Bank, for example, the Fraser Seniors Village brings in several tons of food at their annual event, scheduled this year for Dec. 13. Coldwell Banker Realty collects food and cash on three nights going around with a float in select neighbourhoods. Thrifty’s Foods, which opened in Maple Ridge this summer, has a Food for Families program whereby customers can buy $5, $10, or $15 coupons for the food bank as they’re paying for their

groceries. Safeway also has $5 and $10 coupons to fill the food bank hampers. “Each store does their own thing,” Olson said, adding that “it’s another way to help out if you’re doing your grocery shop-

ping.” Friends In Need gives out 700 hampers of food every month, feeding about 3,000 people. In addition to the monthly hamper, extras, and bread and buns twice a month, food bank clients get a lot more extras including fresh produce. “They’re getting a lot more than they used to,” Olson said. This Christmas season, food bank clients will all receive a ham as well as seasonal food like stuffing, cranberries, and pumpkin pie mixes.

Pumps past their prime …continued from page A1

“We would rather not spend the $250,000,” added Grout. “[The pump] has been in there 82 years. It’s a modern-day miracle.” Three other pump stations (there are six in total in four separate Pitt Meadows drainage areas: Alouette, Fenton, Kennedy, and Pitt Polder) have surpassed their expected lifespan by eight years. These are located at the Kennedy, Baynes, and McKechnie road pump stations. Similarly, the Fenton pump station is 24 years old and had upgrades done 15 years ago. A pump station in the Alouette area is the newest. It’s only two years old. Further discussion on the drainage issue and infrastructure costs is expected at the council meeting on Dec. 4.

Credit union angels collecting for patients A single gift can go a long way in making Christmas bright for a child or senior in the hospital. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Christmas might not always be a joyful time, depending on the situation. For a child or senior who has to spend the season in the hospital, it can be downright disheartening. But people can make their Christmas “I think it’s great that we can merrier by taking a paper angel work with the community to hanging off the do this, and to give back to the tree or along the customer service community that we work in…” wickets at the Shanna Boss Ridge Meadows Envision Financial at Troy Landreville/TIMES 20133 Lougheed Hwy.

The local branch’s hours are Monday to Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call Ridge Meadows Envision at 604-539-5925. In addition to selecting an angel off each tree, starting this year, people also have the option of selecting a soup can ornament off the tree, and returning it with a non-perishable food item or cash donation. In Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, nonperishable food will be delivered to the Friends In Need Food Bank. Acceptable food items include canned tuna, salmon, chicken, or sardines, peanut butter (no added sugar), milk powder, fruit juice, brown rice and whole grain pastas, oatmeal (no added sugar), legumes, lentils, beans, canned vegetables, canned fruit, and oil – preferably olive and safflower. “The statistics really speak to the need for this program,” Envision Financial manager of corporate citizenship Susan Byrom said. “One in five children in B.C. live under the poverty line and this year alone, B.C. food banks served over 28,000 kids. That’s why we are so proud of our Angel Tree Program.” This year, Envision has created a video to share the message of the Angel Tree program which can be viewed at www. youtube.com/envisionfinancial. For every view, Envision will donate $1 to the Angel Tree program (up to $10,000) which will then be distributed to the program’s community partners.

Kids collect food and cash for needy Soccer teams hope the community is generous as they embark on their third annual food drive, taking place Dec. 4 in Pitt Meadows. Residents of Pitt Meadows are being encouraged to get food donations ready. Young soccer players will be at the door next Tuesday, doing their part to feed the community’s hungry. Four teams have joined forces for the third annual Pitt Meadows Food Bank Drive, taking place Dec. 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. The teams are meeting in Pitt Meadows at 5:45 p.m. before heading out to their respective areas to collect non-perishable food items throughout Pitt Meadows. After meeting directly behind the Friends In Need Food Bank’s depot in Pitt Meadows to sort and count the items, the teams will then walk the donations over to the depot. Alternatively, the teams are going to have representatives at the heritage hall at 12460 Harris Rd. from 6 to 8 p.m., so people can drop off their donations there. This is the parking lot at the skate park. The food drive has grown over the past couple of years. In 2010, members of the then girls U10 Pitt Meadows Rockets team

went door-to-door for two hours on a very wet and cold night, and collected more than 750 items of food and about $40 in cash. Last year, the team recruited another team and together, the U11 Girls Pride and U11 Boys Jr. Caps teams collected 1,976 items and more than $100. The food- and fundraiser is shaping up to be even bigger this year. A third team has joined up, so the teams involved are now the U12 Girls Pride, U11 Girls Destroyers, and U12 Jr. Caps. The goal is to collect more than 3,000 items of food and more than $200 in cash. All of these players are select-level players and many of them have contributed globally as well. Last year, during the pre-Olympic qualifying tournament in Vancouver, the Pride raised and donated $3,500 to the Haiti women’s national soccer team in an effort to help them with their stay. They were also nominated back in 2010 as one of the finalist in the national BMO Team of the Week contest where they were able to donate more than $650 to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program, hwich helps underprivileged youth play sports. To date, they will have collected and donated more than 5,500 items of food locally and donated more than $4,400 to various charities, all in a little under three years.

They are so excited to be participating in this again this year and the most amazing thing, is that every one of them understands the impact that they are making as a group. It is a very special group of young men and women that are leaders in this community already at such a young age, said U12 coach Jamie SchwingenSchloegl. On the field, all three teams are enjoying very strong starts to their soccer seasons. After the first eight weeks, the boys U12 Jr. Caps – headed by Chris Jarvie and Jeff Allen – sit atop the standings as an underage team. This group of superstars have been playing up a year in age for two years and have been one of the top teams, losing in the semifinals of cup play last year to the eventual champions. The girls U12 Select A Pride team – headed by Jamie Schwingenschloegl and Lance Kraus – were recently promoted to the top division and enjoyed one of their better starts in the past couple of years. Last year the team made it to the district cup final and look to be headed back again this year. The girls U11 Select A Destroyers team – headed by Dianna Nordquist and Carrie Ford – has been a dominant force all season. Sitting at or near the top since week 1, these girls are pegged to make a long run in the Cup this spring.

Christmas

Parade funds raised

This Saturday, Santa Claus will be in Memorial Peace Park for Maple Ridge’s free Christmas festival. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

One week before the Santa Claus parade, a ladies shopping event held at the seniors centre raised $900 for Christmas event in Maple Ridge. “We are beyond happy with the support and success from the public at the Ladies Shopping Fundraiser this past Saturday,” said Shawna Solomon, who organized the event. The fundraiser follows on the heels of the $1,000 raised at a concert in mid-

November. It costs about $10,000 to put on the Santa Claus Parade and Christmas in the Park, and these fundraisers help pay for the events. Last year, between 10,000 and 12,000 people came out to the free parade which runs along 224th Street. The festivities start at 4 p.m. in Memorial Peace Park with Santa posing for pictures in his yurt and the lighting of the peace tree at 6 p.m. The parade starts immediately after the tree lighting. Parade watchers are asked to bring non-perishable food items for the Friends In Need Food Bank as well as cash. The parade serves as one of the big fundraisers for the local food bank. The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society collects new, unwrapped toys in its tent in the park.

ena Harty recently turned her addiction for scrapbooking into a business. The long-time Whonnockian opened A Paper Notion a few weeks ago and will celebrate a grand opening this Saturday and Sunday. She told me that scrapbooking and card making started out as a pastime and then became an addiction. She started teaching a few classes and opened a little shop in her home out in Whonnock. “I decided it was time to jump it up a notch and bring it into town, nervously, and now we are here,” Harty said about her shop in the 22200 block of Dewdney Trunk Road, directly across the street from Liquidation World. “It doesn’t feel like work,” she said,

adding that it’s like having her own big craft room all the time, except that her daughter Erin Christensen, who works for Harty part-time, makes Mom pay for her supplies. Harty hopes A Paper Notion will experience a long run as there is no other scrapbooking- or paper-crafting-specific shop in Maple Ridge. Every Friday night A Paper Notion has something called “crops,” which is another way to say a bunch of crafters getting together to create scrapbooks and cards. Visit Facebook.com/apapernotion.

PHEW!

YOU SURVIVED THE FALL The taxi of mom & dad

Don Ross (top left) and Rita Pedersen (top right) of Hammond recently returned from a trip to Ecuador, where they met a child named Darwin Perugachi Torres (inset), who they’ve been sponsoring through World Vision. The 15-year-old boy lives with his parents in Maquipurashum, about 100 kilometres from the World Vision national office in Quito. They met Darwin, as well as his mother and father, self-employed farmers who in good years can raise barely enough food for their own family. The local Maple Ridge couple had their picture taken with Darwin, his mother, and a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES, during their South American excursion.

Questions & Answers

Horse chestnuts not a real sweet surprise Dear Anne,

“We have a very healthy 10-year-old wisteria which grows plenty of foliage but only produces two or three blooms each year. It faces west and is growing over an arbour. “We have tried fertilizing, extra watering, less watering, and hard pruning, all with the same result. How can we help the plant produce more flowers?”

Q

Theresa O’Connor, via email

uite a few gardeners have problems getting wisteria to bloom. I wonder if yours gets enough sun. Just because it’s facing west doesn’t mean it gets abundant sun. Are tall trees or tall buildings in the way, turning what should be full sun into partial sun? There’s often delay in getting a wisteria to flower, but six years is usually the longest you can expect, if your wisteria

was grown from cuttings. Seed-grown wisteria plants can wait even 10 to 12 years. I wonder if you bought the plant yourselves, or inherited it when you bought your home. What is under your control is fertilizer. High-nitrogen fertilizer is definitely to be avoided, because it encourages the vine to produce even more leaves, stems, and suckers than it would normally. It could be that your soil has become overly rich from the fertilization already done. Many gardeners prune wisteria, not only hard, but also very frequently. It’s not uncommon to find them pruning long, new whippy growth and suckers once a month in mild winters. Once the pergola or arbour is covered, they keep cutting the young growth back so the wisteria continues to fit into the space it’s been given.

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca

In late winter, the future flower buds will be the round, fat ones. The vegetative buds are thin and pointed. I think your chances of getting more flowers are good, since you already have a few.

Gardening by Anne Marrison

Dear Anne,

“My mother picked a whole lot of chestnuts off the front lawn this year in Kerrisdale, Vancouver. Are they, in fact, edible? I have been told that our variety that grows here is not.”

T

Danna de Groot, via email

wo different chestnut species grow here. One kind is edible, the other is poisonous. The toxic kind (the horse chestnut) is the one that is most frequently grown here, and it’s very likely the one your mother picked. The horse chestnut has very large leaves composed of five leaflets attached

by short stems to one sturdy, main stalk. The nuts tend to be rounded, and there is usually (though not invariably) one nut in each spiny case. Horse chestnuts are definitely unsafe. They have been known to cause nausea, diarrhea, loss of co-ordination, weakness, paralysis, and at times, even death. The edible kind is called the sweet chestnut. It has oval leaves with serrated sides. Each leaf is on its own stalk. The top of the nut is pointed, one side often flat while the other is rounded. Frequently two or more nuts share space in one spiny capsule.

On the Fly by Jeff Weltz

The Maple Ridge Archery Club’s annual Turkey Shoot was held in the Albion Fairgrounds beef barn and was packed to the rafters with high-tech 3D shooters. George Lyons, from Langley, (left) was one of the participants. Lyons shredded his arrow in a metal turkey target, but still earned a perfect score because the arrow stayed in.

A local 17-year-old slugger plays for the Langley Blaze and is being called the next Brett Lawrie. by Steve Ewen Special to The TIMES

The second most impressive thing about Tyler O’Neill as a ballplayer is the comparisons to Brett Lawrie. The top one is how O’Neill, yet another Langley Blaze prospect, seems to be handling them. “It’s leverage with scouts,” the Maple Ridge slugger said of the tag, which came initially from longtime Blaze manager Doug Mathieson and has been picked up by Baseball America, who also recently pegged O’Neill a top high school prospect for the 2013 major league draft. “They like to have comparisons. “Doug is getting my name

out there, and even more than I could have hoped for. I can’t say enough about what he’s done for me.” There are some logical links between Lawrie and O’Neill. Lawrie, 22, is one of the cornerstones of the Toronto Blue Jays’ future. He used to star under Mathieson with the Blaze. O’Neill, 17, resembles him physically; he’s a powerfully built, 6-foot, 205-pound right-handed hitter. O’Neill, too, shows athleticism, with eye-popping bat speed and a 6.75-second 60-yard dash time. Mathieson contends that O’Neill and Lawrie even have a similar gait. Lawrie, of course, has bolted his way through baseball’s minor league system, making the bigs after just over 300 games in the minors. That will take some doing to duplicate. That said, O’Neill, from a distance, does seem to have his head on straight. “I loved facing the competition

TRUTH IN ''EMPLOYMENT'' ADVERTISING Glacier Media Group makes every effort to ensure you are responding to a reputable and legitimate job opportunity. If you suspect that an ad to which you have responded is misleading, here are some hints to remember. Legitimate employers do not ask for money as part of the application process; do not send money; do not give any credit card information; or call a 900 number in order to respond to an employment ad. Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health themes fill the few weeks ahead. Eat and dress sensibly; avoid sudden temperature changes and driving with the window open. If a romance began last month, it remains vibrant. All relationships heat up through Dec. 25, so be diplomatic. You could form a career/ business partnership, at least for a while. Career opportunities abound, though they need a flexible, diplomatic approach. Your energy, charisma remain high Sunday.Chase money,buy/sell Monday/Tuesday. Travel, errands, communications fill midweek. Head home Friday/Saturday – strengthen family ties. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure fill the weeks ahead. Take a risk, express yourself – and your heart – to a lover, child or spouse (or world, if you’re creative). A love affair could start, perhaps with someone you met in a group setting a while ago. (This one might have difficulty reaching a wedding.) Work demands intensify – practice safety. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your charisma soars Monday/ Tuesday – impress someone! Chase money, buy/sell midweek. Errands, calls, visits, news, casual friends and paperwork fill Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your home, parent/ child relations, foundations, security, garden and nature, nutrition, stomach, soul, retirement – these are featured until late December. Be patient with career and other ambitious areas – a waiting, “gestation” period lasts all winter. Your social life continues to be interesting: friends amuse, but intensity and sexual attraction send their arrows also. Sunday’s happy, optimistic. Retreat, rest and contemplate Monday/Tuesday. Your energy surges midweek – start significant projects, especially in those “home” areas listed above. Chase money Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Wisdom and gentle love, compassion, social rituals, far travel, higher education, publishing and intellectual pursuits fill your days. (Or at least tap you on the shoulder, as you can “tune out” such good things by working too hard, being too angry, etc.) Spend Sunday at home or in nature, resting, supervising kids. This night through Tuesday bring romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure. These three days could mark a new relationship opportunity – so could Friday/Saturday. Tackle chores midweek. You’re ambitious, but don’t test higher-ups. Taurus April 20-May 20: Mysteries confront you. Solving them could open a profit – or someone’s heart. Investment opportunities abound – the best of these might involve 1) a partner, or 2) your own earnings picture. (E.g., invest in a machine to help you work; or in your education to get you on a higher earnings plateau.) Relationships with others remain active, talkative and affectionate. A “lust affair” might begin. Beware violating social, moral or legal boundaries now to Dec. 26. Avoid lawyers and lawsuits. Home calls you Monday/Tuesday. Romance or creative urges, midweek. Tackle chores Friday on. Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships – and opportunities – are front and centre. This is no time to retreat or stand in the background. Be forward, approach people, make friends or chase love prospects. Others will welcome you, be glad to see you – unless you demand, insist or attempt to take advantage. A prospect or opportunity from the past (perhaps one you pursued last summer, early fall – or one from 1999) hovers around you: it will be “ready to go” February onward. (Meantime, dream, plan.) Your yearning for friendship, blocked for some months, will produce results soon. Romance, sort of, late week.

When You Place Your Ad in the Classifieds!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is a busy but not important month. Chase money this week – buy/ sell, pursue new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra work, etc. Your home holds friction to late month. A relationship might break up. Take this in stride, remain diplomatic, gentle – toward children, too. A legal, educational or far travel project is on hold (until February) but many short excursions will soothe your wanderlust. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – a light romance might begin. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy, charisma soar on a bumpy Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Chase money for the next few weeks. Add to your possessions. Buy/sell, seek new clients, nudge the boss for a pay raise, find extra work, etc. A spouse, partner or “third party” (or investment) might be beneficially involved – especially if a deal or introduction initially began before last October. Sunday’s gentle, thoughtful. Be ambitious Monday (best) and Tuesday. Midweek raises your hopes, brings popularity and social joys, and might fulfill a wish (perhaps involving travel, communication, friendship – and your work place). Retreat Friday/Saturday: rest, contemplate. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and clout are at a yearly high – you can attract that person who attracts you. A Gemini “mirrors you.” Start significant projects, venture forth, ask favours, meet people, see and be seen. Sunday contains secrets, but it’s unlikely they’ll yield to investigation. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. Love could begin – so could a publishing venture, international journey, higher education or cultural event. Be ambitious mid-week, show higher-ups what you can do. Social delights, popularity, optimism and wish fulfillment Friday/ Saturday!

Legal/Public Notices

NOTICE TO CREDITORS AND OTHERS Notice is hereby given that all persons having claims against the Estate of Thomas Edward Murray also known as Tom Murray, Deceased, formerly of the City of Maple Ridge, Province of British Columbia, who died on the 26th day of February, 2012, are hereby required to send the particulars thereof to the undersigned Gerald Richard Brown, Executor, on or before January 30, 2012, after which date the Estate’s assets will be distributed, having regard only to the claims that have been received.

Dec. 2 - Dec. 8, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recuperate to late December – rest, retreat, follow spiritual or charitable paths, deal with government agencies, institutions and corporate administrations. You might be asked to join a committee – accept, gladly; it can improve your employment prospects. Invest in warehousing or assembly lines, or a vacation retreat. Protect health and reputation: eat, dress and act sensibly. Avoid sudden temperature changes. Monday (better) and Tuesday bring investment opportunities, lifestyle decisions and health concerns. Mellow wisdom midweek. Be carefully ambitious Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’re going to love December. Popularity, social delights, wish fulfillment, new horizons and hopes, new plans and new friends – these “visit” you until Dec, 21. Live for the future this month. This week, remain ambitious: a cohort or boss has important, beneficial information or status to bestow on you. Until the 25th, guard your reputation: DO NOT gossip nor speak with unsavoury people. Tackle routine chores Sunday. Exciting meetings – or love interludes – buoy your mood Monday/Tuesday and Friday/Saturday. In-between, you touch deep regions in sex, finances or health. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious this month – but realize your larger and longer-term fortune (through next June) lies in the opposite direction: home, real estate, retirement, “stopping,” security and humility. (E.g., you could quit a 60K job but make twice that on a piece of land.) You still feel enlightened, at peace, this week. Sunday’s for beauty, pleasure and passion: but (temporarily) there doesn’t seem to be anyone to lay that passion on. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings exciting meetings, new horizons. Sex and $ depths Friday/Saturday: be a detective. Avoid unsafe sex. timstephens@shaw.ca
