Some people think a pantomime is a silent production – nothing could be farther from the truth as theatregoers will find out at next week’s Sleeping Beauty Christmas pantomine put on by SPECCtacular Productions. A traditional English Christmas pantomime, which goes back several centuries, includes a “clown-like” atmosphere with music, dancing, comedy, and humour, said producer Christine Olorenshaw. “It’s got a mixture of fun things for the kids... and for the adults,” she said.

Bedroom blaze

Help sought for mom and two kids

Fire officials credit a smoke detector with saving a Maple Ridge family on Tuesday evening. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

The public is being invited to help a single mother of two rebuild her life, after fire broke out in their Maple Ridge home Tuesday night. The blaze started in an upstairs bedroom in one of the 48 units in Richmond Court in Maple Ridge at about 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, said Maple

Ridge assistant fire chief Mark Smitton. The bedroom was gutted by the flames and the rest of the home was damaged by smoke and water. According to neighbours, the bedroom was fully engulfed by the time firefighters arrived. “The flames were shooting six or seven feet at least out of the window,” said neighbour Rodney Clough. Another neighbour, Tina Delorme, said Loreen Birchmore lives in the unit with her two children, James, 17, who has cerebral palsy, and Hayley, four. “Loreen was so devastated,” Clough said. “She was so upset

about losing her kids’ stuff and people will step up to help Christmas presents.” Birchmore deal with the loss “This is a perfect example of due to fire and water damage. how working smoke alarms can “She’s a single mom.

A Pitt Meadows Christmas

Songbook fosters festive family fun Friday night’s holiday event at Spirit Square is a family-oriented event. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

mrtimes.com

‘Tis the season to break out into song and belt out Christmas carols with friends, neighbours, and family. And that is what is expected this weekend at A Pitt Meadows Christmas. For the second year, The TIMES and the Pitt Meadows Community Foundation have joined forces to provide Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge residents with a festive holiday songbook. And that songbook, full of carols, will be handed out during A Pitt Meadows Christmas, which runs on Friday, Dec. 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Spirit Square. For the past four years the community foundation has been an integral part of the Pitt Meadows Christmas celebrations. The foundation co-hosts the annual family-oriented festival, which features children’s activities, contests, entertainment – and most moving for foundation president, Michael Hayes, the traditional singing of Christmas carols. “Each year, this family event continues to grow in activities, friendship, and spirit,”

Bears seen in Ridge There have been a couple bear sightings in Maple Ridge in the past few days. MLA Marc Dalton saw three bears lumber through his yard in Albion. The mother bear and two cubs are regular guests at the Daltons, but the MLA wondered whether they are supposed to be around this time of the year or hibernating. Rosie Wijenberg, the bear aware community coordinator for Maple Ridge, is warning residents not to feed bears as it might stop them from going into hibernation. • More at www.mrtimes.com

Zumba brings in toys TIMES sales representative Anne Gordon will hold a Zumbathon on Saturday to bring in toys for children at BC Children’s Hospital. “Bring in a toy and in return you get to dance, sweat, laugh, smile, and have tons of fun,” Gordon said. The Zumbathon will be held at Dancing for Dessert Ballroom at #3-20279 97th Ave., Langley. • More at www.mrtimes.com

said Hayes. And he knows people are anxious to once again get hold of the keepsake Christmas songbooks this year, which are given out in exchange for a donation to the foundation. Last year nearly $500 was raised through donations from the songbooks. Hayes said the books are a great way to get the word out about the foundation and its efforts to build a better community.

quality of life in Pitt Meadows. The foundation is managed entirely by volunteers. “We are well positioned to bring people and organizations together, convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities,” Hayes said. The motto is “building today for a better tomorrow.” To date, the Pitt Meadows Community Foundation has granted more than $100,000 in financial support for the community.

Hardeep Sidhu fears he will have to close his Ruskin gas station next spring.

Special to The TIMES

TransLink’s gas tax is proving too taxing for Hardeep Sidhu’s business. Sidhu is considering closing his Ruskin gas station and general store in Maple Ridge because customers are driving another few kilometres to stations in Mission, which is outside TransLink’s jurisdiction and doesn’t have the onerous tax. So while Sidhu was charging $1.28 per litre for regular gas Monday, three stations in Mission’s Silverdale area were charging $1.11 per litre. With a profit of three cents a litre and sales of only about 400 litres a day, Sidhu is making only about $12 a day on gas sales.

Wayne Leidenfrost photo

“I’m thinking if nothing is going to change, I’m going to close next spring,” he said. When Sidhu bought the business about eight years ago, the price difference between his station and the Mission outlets was only five to six cents a litre. He invested about $800,000 for new pumps and new tanks and could still compete. But no longer. Although he pays property taxes, Sidhu com-

plained he wasn’t getting any benefits because he has his own well and a septic system. “I should not be in Metro [Vancouver],” he said. “Then I’d be happy.” TransLink did not respond to a request for an interview on the subject, but Peter Fassbender, the vice-chairman of the Metro Vancouver Mayors Council on Transportation, can sympathize with Sidhu’s plight.

Fassbender is the mayor of Langley City and knows businesses in the neighbouring Langley Township suffer the same plight as Sidhu. Some gas stations in Aldergrove are literally across the street from competition in Abbotsford, which is outside TransLink boundaries and also escapes the gas tax. “I don’t have a solution,” said Fassbender, who doesn’t know of any way there could be an exemption for Sidhu or similarly afflicted businesses. Current legislation allows TransLink to expand east to Hope and north to Pemberton, something Fassbender supports. “I think the reality is, this is one region in terms of the future of transportation,” he said. But areas outside Metro Vancouver are not very enthusiastic about agreeing to higher taxation just to be under TransLink’s umbrella.

Fundraiser

Realtors hitch up sleigh to collect for food bank

Staff from Coldwell Banker hit the town on three nights to help feed the less fortunate. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A group of realtors will join Santa Claus on three nights next week to collect donations for the Friends In Need Food Bank. Over the past five years, staff at Coldwell Banker Tri-Tel Realty in Maple Ridge have collected more than four tons of food and $6,800-plus for the local food bank. The original idea came from realtor Terry Passley six years ago, and the staff all jumped on board. Passley’s father is a retired builder and he’s in charge of getting the float ready for the three nights. The float is built to look like a sleigh and Santa Claus rides in it while 10 to 15 realtors come out on each of the three nights and go from door to door collecting food and donations. Before going out, the realtors hand out

flyers to the houses in the three neighbourhoods they target so they are forewarned that the float is coming around. “Each year we go to the same three neighbourhoods and now they have begun to expect us,” said Vicki Cunningham, a realtor with the Ralph Telep team. Ralph and Bonnie Telep paid for making the float, and the trailer they use is donated. Passley drives his truck to pull Santa and his sleigh. “Even though we’ve had some cold and wet nights, none of us complain,” Cunningham said. “It’s something that has come to define our office and we use the three nights as a kickoff to our Christmas cheer.” The realtors will be collecting for the Friends In Need around Riverside Centre (formerly Riverside Elementary) on Monday, Dec. 10, around Alouette Elementary on Tuesday, Dec. 11, and in the neighbourhood around Harry Hooge Elementary on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Each night they’ll go from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information on the Friends In Need Food Bank, go to www.friendsneedfood.com.

Our View

Get real with local buying Such a deal! Or is it? Remember the old adage: “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” According to a survey commissioned by Microsoft Canada, 84 per cent of Canadians say they have not knowingly purchased a counterfeit product. But that survey also suggests that most of us don’t understand the risks of ending up with a counterfeit item. For instance, more than half of Canadians appear to be concerned about their online purchases inadvertently landing them a sack of bogus goods as they wade through their Christmas shopping lists this year. And only one in three consider the possibility of picking up a proverbial bill of goods among their in-store purchases. The range of counterfeits available is also mind-numbingly wide: from clothing to electronics, from medications to software. While more than three quarters of Canadians maintain that they would not knowingly buy counterfeit products, the apparent lack of ability among as many as four out of five of us to distinguish real from fake is likely send the best of intentions astray. If it matters to you that you are sliding the real McCoy into your shopping bag this Christmas buying season, there are a few tell-tale signs that can help keep you on track. If the price is unreal, then likely, so is the thing you’re buying. Look for flaws, often simple ones, like spelling errors on labels or on the packaging. But one of the best ways to ensure the great deal you’re getting isn’t going to saddle you with a piece of garbage is to develop a relationship with the people who sell the stuff. Shopping local – and paying attention to word-of-mouth recommendations – helps you… and the local economy. – B.G.

Traffic safety

Dear Editor, While on the way to work, my wife was involved in a serious vehicle accident in downtown Maple Ridge. A woman with a young child in the back ran through a red light and hit my wife’s car just behind the driver’s door. The severity of the hit was so intense that it spun my wife’s car around three times and she ended up in a parking lot across the intersection. Her car missed being wrapped around a light pole so close that there were paint chips from her car on the light pole. She fortunately was able to walk away, and while the child in the offending car seemed unhurt walking around, the woman was taken away in an ambulance and will hopefully be OK. An RCMP officer at the scene said my wife should buy a lottery ticket, as one thousandth of a second difference would have been devastating. What makes this whole scenario so frightening is that, according to witnesses at the scene, the offending driver was on a cellphone, and though there was another

car in the lane next to hers stopped at the red light, she went through it without any apparent attempt to slow down. This comes after another relative of mine a while ago, while stopped at a red light in Maple Ridge with her children, was rear ended by a person apparently on a cellphone who said they didn’t see her vehicle stopped at the light. I wish I could understand, but never will, why people are unable to drive from point A to B without having to be on a phone. What is so important to them that they would rather risk their lives, their children’s lives, and the lives of everyone else around them? It is apparent that the law and fines don’t deter them, as you see people all the time, blatantly using their phones while driving. We have the technology, and I sincerely hope that, if a person can be shown to be using a phone while involved in an accident, their insurance will be voided, and the authorities will come after them to recover all the costs of the accidents they cause. Doug Stanger, Maple Ridge

Pitt Meadows

Buy clown suits with tax increases

Dear Editor, Pitt Meadows is defiant in reducing taxes in the face of the ongoing public petition. We are riddled with a succession of weak administration and arrogance. With tax hikes, we could buy clown costumes for City hall. They operate like a tiny dictatorship rather than trim the fat to ethically lower taxes. We see RCMP cluster two or three cops for radar on Harris Road rather than allocate them in an efficient and effective way to lower poor 911 response times. Speed traps are good, but don’t waste three or more cops in a spot. Split them up to better serve the community. Where are their bosses, at Tim Horton’s? It is the same poor value in our City hall, with their spending ways and costly staff who look bored when you visit the hall. It’s a semi-retirement pad. It’s time to sublet jobs to save dollars. How much will we pay for a storage

grounds-keeper house off Bonson park? Real smart: it’s next to a hockey court where they use hard balls and pucks. And we’ll pay for the broken glass and house damage. Our mayor follows the path of her predecessor with a history of costly silliness: a joke cultural centre, new library, ice arena receivership, and more. Uniformed people in power think spending cash will bring revenue – wrong. Other areas are managed better and make efforts to stalemate taxes, but not here. Where’s the restaurant, pub, school, etc. promised by realtors, developers, and City hall seven years ago in the Osprey area? They lack credibility and wonder why most do not respect or trust them. It’s time to erode their union, dilute wages, cull waste. Sadly, City hall lacks judgment and listening skills to those who butter their bread. It’s no wonder politics generates the worst in people.

Yours Truly

Tyler’s humour right on the money

Dear Editor, What is it about Tim Tyler’s humour that people just don’t get? I rarely attend Remembrance Day services, because as he says, it’s something that parents instill in their children [Monday more than just a stat, Nov. 15 Yours Truly, TIMES]. My father was an RAF co-pilot during the Second World War, flying Lancaster bombers over Germany, but neither he nor our family ever attended a Remembrance Day service. I want to tell Walter Verwoerd [Pessimism perhaps poorly placed, Nov. 27 Letters, TIMES] that he goes to the U.S. far too much, if he is going every two weeks, and that’s the secret of why he is never bothered. Those of us who aren’t hopping across the line to help the U.S. with their economy aren’t so lucky. I don’t have a beard, but consider my experiences to be similar to Tim Tyler’s. I rarely go across the border, and if at all possible, pay whatever extra I need to pay to not go through an American airport. My experience with the U.S. Border services began in 1975. After going through U.S. customs at YVR three times on the way to the boarding lounge, silly me commented, “My goodness, another one,” and received

a, “Just be glad you don’t live in Russia.” On returning by car from San Francisco, we must have been mistaken for hippies (long straight hair), as we were taken aside and the car we were travelling was taken apart, looking for, I guess, drugs. Another favourite was taking the ferry to Alaska before cruise ships, and the captain announced they were leaving foreign waters and everybody cheered. On the way to Australia after 9/11, all Canadians were put in a lounge with our bags and searched, and after a five-hour delay, finally got underway. On the return from Australia a month later, only Canadian passengers were pulled out of the boarding lounge in L.A. and taken to a room where we found all our luggage on the floor. We each got our own officer who rummaged through our bags. After six hours, we were boarded after the U.S. passengers. We were patted down and wanded while watching Americans getting on the plane before us, including a Greek orthodox priest in a gown – who wasn’t even patted down. Yes, we consider the U.S. neighbours, but it doesn’t go both ways. Annette Code, Pitt Meadows

Photos help people smile

An event to give less-fortunate people portraits at no cost is turning into a big success. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Rev. Richard Bott and his fellow organizers are ready to host the second annual Help Portrait event at his church on Saturday, Dec. 8. “The building is ready to go and we are expecting even more people than last year,” said Bott. Recently, 20-plus volunteers gathered at Golden Ears United Church (formerly St. Andrew’s) to discuss the upcoming event. “The excitement level at the meeting was extremely high. We are really looking forward to meeting people and taking photos of everyone who participates,” the reverend added. Help Portrait is a worldwide event where photographers, makeup artists,

and graphic artists volunteer to do photo shoots for financially strapped people for free. Last year was such a success and Bott is hoping even more people attend this time round. About 85 portrait sittings were shot last year at two locations – one in Maple Ridge and the other in Pitt Meadows, but this year organizers plan to keep it all at one place. Bott said he wants people to know they can come individually or in groups. The event takes place at Golden Ears United Church (the sign still reads St. Andrews) on Dewdney Trunk Road at 222nd Street on Dec. 8, from 1 to 8 p.m., and does not require a reservation. Some of the items that are still required to make this event a success are photo paper, ink, frames, and manpower. For more information and to donate visit http: //helpportraitridgemeadows. com. Donations made at www.helpportrait.com can not be accessed by the Maple Ridge organizers.

Snow and Ice Removal Notice Commercial Premises The City of Pitt Meadows requires every owner or occupier of commercial premises to remove all ice and snow from any sidewalk bordering such commercial premises not later than 10:00 a.m. on the day following the snowfall, on every day that shops are permitted to be open by statue or municipal bylaw.

Residential Premises Owners or occupier of residential single and multi family property are required to remove snow and ice from sidewalks, stairs, ramps and foot paths bordering the property. 1) Snowplows have no place to push snow except to the curb or shoulder of the road and that includes any driveways in their path. The City realizes this causes some hardship and we ask for your understanding, as our main goal is to make the roads as safe as possible. 2) Whenever possible we ask homeowners to refrain from parking their vehicles on the street during a snow storm. For more information or to report a problem with an icy or blocked sidewalk, contact the Bylaw Enforcement Officer at 604-465-2445.

elcome again to week #6 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. Due to Ralph’s ever changing schedule, this week’s workout started a day later, and with the extra day off from training, Ralph was still happy to report that he had missed the workout and that his body craved for the next one. To continuously keep Ralph’s body challenged, this week we increased his cardio intervals on the elliptical from four to five. Though he did admit the extra interval to be challenging, he was pleased to see that he was not only able to complete it, but do so at the same speed and with the same effort as the others.

As our body’s become more conditioned with cardiovascular training and our hearts become stronger, the time needed to recover diminishes. This week Ralph was able to recover from a peak interval heart rate of 170 BPM to 119 BPM in 1 minute and 30 seconds, a time that took him 6 minutes the first week. It is a vast improvement and proof of all his hard work. This week was also Ralph’s one month weigh in. He came into the weigh in feeling confident and with the knowledge that all his hard work would pay off. Sure enough it had! Ralph was down another 5lbs bringing his total to a loss of 11lbs. Ralph’s measurements only added to the proof of his success: he had continued to lose inches all throughout, primarily in his midsection which was a main focus for him. Feeling elated, Ralph not only left the week with a sense of pride, but the satisfying realization that he would now have to revisit his initial goal of losing 15lbs. Great job Ralph! Please join us again next week for the next installment of Ralph’s progress through week 7!

Trees sales support arts Canadian Tire will be the venue of a fundraising event this Saturday. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Seventy-five Christmas trees are for sale this weekend with their proceeds going to the local food bank and school programming. Maple Ridge resident Cindy Boileau donated 75 trees to the Friends In Need Food Bank. The Ridge Meadows Education Foundation (RMEF) will provide the manpower to sell the trees on Saturday at Canadian Tire, and then the profits will be split between the foundation and Friends In Need Food Bank. Part of the proceeds that come to the education foundation will continue to support the music program at Whonnock Elementary.

The school music program has already received money from the Rotary Wine Fest and from the school district, but the money coming from the Christmas tree sale will give another boost to the initiative. “This is what RMEF does,” said school trustee Dave Rempel, who also sits on the foundation board. “It augments funding for the arts.” The RMEF was founded about six years ago and gives out grants, scholarships, and bursaries. Grants can be applied for by going to www.sd42.ca under the community tab, which includes information about RMEF. The Christmas trees are $25 a piece, but $5 coupons are being given out on Saturday during the Mark’s Work Wearhouse’s customer appreciation event. The Christmas trees will be sold Canadian Tire on 200th Street in Maple Ridge this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fundraiser

Africa beckons young volunteer

A bake sale this weekend will help THSS student go on a volunteer trip.

Thomas Haney student Miranda Tymoschuk is planning a fundraiser this weekend selling baked goods at Haney Place Mall with proceeds going towards her trip to Africa this spring. Tymoschuk, who just received a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal from MP Randy Kamp, has faced medical adversity for much of her young life. But she has also put efforts into fundraising for different organizations, and

made a volunteer trip to Kenya last spring. This coming March, she is going to volunteer in Ghana. “I hadn’t planned on going back so soon, but after hearing about this trip, it brought back so many wonderful memories and emotions as well as gave me a feeling of hope,” Tymoschuk said. “I have to go back. She needs to raise $4,700 in total for the trip, so she’s been busy baking in her spare time. The bake sale will be at the top of the ramp at Haney Place Mall this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Complimentary consultation Complimentary clean and polish Walk-ins and repairs welcomed Complete dentures and partial dentures Denture over implants* Standard or Precision dentures 5 year warranty on Precision dentures We accept all dental plans

*Procedures to be completed in conjunction with a dentist.

Sleeping Beauty awakens theatre with music, comedy it’s toe-tapping... everyone can join in and sing along.” The show is directed by Marshall, with dance choreography by Susan Mitchell of the Maple Ridge Dance Circle. The dancers are also from the dance school. Su Wolfe, as musical director, has chosen some modern upbeat musical numbers to set the pace of this classic fairy-tale adventure. The pantomime is enhanced with lavish sets and props by Susan Crape, and costumes by Julie Milroy. Actors are largely from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, with a few new faces like Princess Beauty played by Kaleigh Polderman. Sleeping Beauty is at The ACT from Tuesday, Dec. 11 to Saturday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 15, there’s a matinee at 1 p.m. and a show at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at The ACT in person or by calling 604-476-2787, or online at www.theactmapleridge.org.

...continued from page A1

A pantomime always includes a king, a queen, a prince, and a jester, and it is always a battle between good and evil. “In the end, good always wins,” Olorenshaw said. The queen – the Dame – is always a man dressed in drag and the prince is always a very good-looking woman with shapely legs also dressed in drag. Audience participation is encouraged in pantomimes, Olorenshaw said, and there is always a lot of audience interaction – kids are encouraged to cheer the good characters and boo the evil ones. While the production follows the traditional Sleeping Beauty storyline, it has been adapted by Ed Marshall. There is also a lot of ad libbing going on during the show, making each night unique. “It’s a different show every time you see it,” Olorenshaw said. “It’s exciting,

Writer fails at baking exchanges

Maple shortbread cookies

Kathy Booth, a goodintentioned Christmas baker, showed off her maple shortbread cookies.

K

athy Booth is a “good intentions” Christmas baker… with bad time management skills. “Every year, as Christmas approaches, I head to the market and lovingly purchase the finest ingredients with which to bake all sorts of traditional Christmas goodies – mince tarts, Turkish delight, Christmas fruit cake, ruiskis,” explained Booth. This kind of baking never happens, admitted the author of Early Start, a monthly early childhood education column in The TIMES. continued on page A26…

Ingredients: 1 cup butter 1 egg yolk ½ cup pure maple sugar 2 cups unbleached flour

Place oven racks in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cream softened butter. Stir in the maple sugar and egg yolk. Add flour, a little at a time, stirring until the mixture is too stiff to work with a spoon. Turn out onto a floured surface and gently knead, adding a little flour at a time, just until dough begins to crack at the edges. Gently flatten the dough and then roll it out to ¼ inch with a rolling pin. Cut into shapes and place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little maple sugar on top of each cookie. Bake 10 minutes or until delicately golden at edges. Some hints: The number of cookies depends on the size and shape of the cookie cutters. The cookies are more melt-in-the-mouth if the dough is handled lightly. Use coconut sugar instead of maple for a more exotic flavour. –Kathy Booth TIMES columnist

n my family, I am known as the “cheesecake queen.” I held a desserts and drinks housewarming once. I made 10 different kinds of cheesecakes. Yes, 10. That is not a typo. For another occasion, a family reunion at my parents, I made six different kinds (that was when I was crowned and given my title) and I have always considered cheesecake to be my go-to dessert. My secret is that for many of the cheesecakes I make, I have a standard base, to which I add a variety of things.

Biscuits and liqueur offer Italian flair to the season

O

ne of Chef Dez’s preferred holiday treats is Italian polenta buns. “These are not actually buns, per se, but more like biscuits, as they are essentially classified as a quick bread, not yeast raised,” The TIMES On Cooking columnist explained. “Polenta is basically cooked cornmeal, so these buns are designed to reflect a sweet version of polenta in a biscuit form. The addition of grappa soaked raisins are a wonderful addition in taste, but also add a complementing visual and texture aspect,” he said. He always has a small amount of grappa to sip when having them. “Grappa is an acquired taste that has more cynics than lovers, as I have even heard rumours of some cafes in Italy actually use grappa to clean their winChef Dez is a food columnist and culinary instructor dows,” said Chef Dez. in the Fraser Valley. Visit him at www.chefdez.com. “My honest advice to you is to try it, but be prepared to hate it. Rum can easily be substituted for the grappa if you prefer.”

Italian polenta buns with grappa Recipe created by Chef Dez – www. chefdez.com A favourite in Italy, these freshly baked sweet biscuits reminiscent of rich polenta. Grappa is an Italian liqueur made from fermenting grape remnants after pressing them for wine. (This recipe makes 8 biscuits.) Ingredients: 4 tbsp raisins 2 tbsp Italian grappa liqueur (plus more for sipping) 1 cup fine cornmeal 1 cup milk, heated to almost boiling 1 cup corn flour ²/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 tbsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 cup cold butter, cut in small pieces cold milk, optional icing sugar In a small bowl, soak the raisins in the grappa. Preheat the oven to 425ºF and prepare a large baking sheet with parchment

paper. In a separate bowl, stir the hot milk and the cornmeal together. It will get very thick as the cornmeal swells and absorbs the milk. In another bowl combine all of the other dry ingredients together: corn flour, sugar, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Work the cold butter pieces into this dry mixture with a pastry cutter until the butter pieces are about the size of peas. Do not work the butter in with your hands, as this will melt the butter. Stir the raisins and grappa mixture into the milk/cornmeal mixture. Then mix this with the dry ingredients and butter mixture until it is just combined – do not over mix. If it is too dry, add a little extra milk. It should resemble a thick muffin batter. Spoon 8 equal portions onto the prepared baking sheet and bake immediately for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove the biscuits from the pan and let cool slightly on a cooling rack. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with a small shot of grappa, coffee, or espresso. – Chef Dez, TIMES columnist

The recipe, originally gleaned from a decades old copy of A Guide to Good Cooking by Five Roses Flour, is so simple and quickly made, even she’s convinced she can get it baked in time for Christmas. Over the years, she has played with the ingredients. “It adapts well,” she said, noting that the original recipe calls for icing sugar and ¼ teaspoon of fresh ground nutmeg. She uses maple sugar instead for what she called a distinctly Canadian flavour. “These are also a great cookie to bake with kids,” Booth said. “Wishing you Merry Christmas and bon appetit!”

…continued from page A25 “The nuts and dried fruit, the mince, the extra butter, walnut paste, and whipping cream remain tucked in the fridge.” Needless to say, she fails miserably at participating in Christmas baking exchanges. “The ‘ooh, I really want to do some Christmas baking’ urge comes from fond memories of childhood, when my mom baked enough mince tarts, Turkish delight, and shortbread cookies for us six kids and anyone else who might stop by,” Booth recalled. “I don’t know how she did it all. At the time, the lowly shortbread cookie was on my long list of things not worth eating. In my childish opinion, there was nothing remotely interesting about them.”

A mom and dad from two Maple Ridge families both won golds at a karate contest. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

A dojo in Maple Ridge is home to a couple of medal-winning parents who started karate simply because they were tired of just watching their kids from the sidelines. A little over three years ago, Angela McPhaden signed up her son Garret for karate at Curran’s Karate. Then she sat and watched. When Garret graduated from tiger class to family class, Mom stopped making excuses like “I’m too old for this” and “I don’t have time,” and signed herself up.

“It’s a very big commitment. “The decision to compete in Minimum five years to black tournaments this year is one belt,” said McPhaden, explaining more goal that I had decided that she convinced herself that to set for myself. I knew that I if she was going to do this, she would always regret it if I didn’t was going to have at least give it a to stick with it to try,” explained “We have a saying at show her kids that McPhaden, who the dojo: fall down she’s not a quitter. has an advanced Fast-forward two blue belt (blue with seven times, get up and a half years. stripe.) eight.

kids. In karate, they come here to the dojo and can be peers with their kids,” explained Curran. Curran’s Karate student John Bartkowiak also won at provincials. He kicked his way to a men’s masters first-place win, the same category he won the year before. He also won silver at the 2011 Sato Cup Invitational. Bartkowiak, 42, started practising karate because his sons Cole, now 10, and Mitchell, seven, were already involved. “I’ve always taught my boys that it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, as long as you know you did your best. Karate takes this from theory into practice,” said Bartkowiak, a green belt. “We have a saying at the dojo: fall down seven times, get up eight. These are words you can live by.”

Cares!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your wise, mellow mood continues, as do a stream of opportunities in far travel, education, publishing, law, cultural venues and other profound zones. You might find these end up as smaller things, or that smaller things lead to or benefit the bigger. (E.g., far, foreign travel becomes lucky when you engage in short, local trips. Or a large publishing venture emerges from a series of smaller emails.) This week and next, you’ll be increasingly drawn into these areas (travel, education, etc.) – to your benefit. A love affair might arrive. Bosses, parents are temperamental: smile! Taurus April 20-May 20: Early week brings an exciting or inspiring meeting, perhaps the stirrings of passion. Your instincts are accurate here regarding communicating, friendship, light romance (so make a light, friendly phone call) – but you might be fooled (perhaps by yourself) regarding sex, intimacy and “possession.” These last themes (intimacy) become more pronounced Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – you will probably learn clearly where another stands. Your sexual and financial antennae are alert: a good investment or debt reduction opportunity awaits. Wisdom, gentle moods flow over you late week. Gemini May 21-June 20: Tackle chores Sunday p.m. to pre-dawn Tuesday. (Avoid working with or on the water, laundry appliances, etc.) The tone of this month is struck Tuesday afternoon to Thursday morning: relationships, opportunities, relocation themes, exciting meetings – and possible competition or opposition. (Defuse these with diplomacy and cheerful softness.) Thursday midday to midday Saturday brings secrets, financial and sexual urges, and health concerns – a bonanza awaits if you research, investigate. These days can deepen a bond with someone. You can make a great new friend this week. Talk!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health concerns remain important for two more weeks. Though early Sunday is sluggish, restful, the eve into Tuesday offers beauty, nature’s poetry, charming kids and romantic notions. Insight mixes with blind spots, so don’t take life-changing steps. Chores and health claim attention Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – charge in, almost everything succeeds. Thursday afternoon starts two days of exciting meetings, attractions, opportunities, fresh horizons – and possible enmity or challenge. (So practise diplomacy.) Long-range, believe in love – it’s coming (2013/14?). Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Charge after what/who you want. Take a chance; risks are likely to lead to bountiful rewards. Enroll kids in a great school. If you’re single and want someone, say so – to him/ her. Your creative talents are right there, waiting to be used. You’ll win at sports, games and cards. Don’t delay – only 12 days remain of this splendid, rewarding phase. True love might come from a group meeting, or from friends’ introduction. (So don’t avoid parties, gatherings.) These themes are especially strong midweek. Earlier (Sunday eve to early Tuesday) be restful, contemplate. Chores, Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Settle down, settle in all week, especially midweek. Your domestic situation is warm, vibrant, welcoming – and taking a few naps in the sunny window would be a good idea. It’s hibernation time – any extra rest you get now will redound to your benefit Dec. 21 onward, when adventure, creativity and romance approach (and demand extra energy). Sunday afternoon to midday Tuesday brings errands, trips, communications with fascinating (romantic?) overtones. You might speak with a mate prospect. Romantic and creative notions arise Thursday noon to Saturday – but don’t push. Rest.

Dec. 9 - Dec. 15, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Paperwork, calls, visits, casual friends, siblings and errands fill your days – especially midweek. Channel all anger or friction into the physical side of home: repairs, renos, landscaping, etc. In some extreme cases, the choice becomes: renos, etc., or the possible end of a relationship (if it formed since January 2011). Both can also occur: think deeply before acting. Chase money Sunday p.m., Monday. Home (and those potential repairs, etc., and domestic friction) is accented Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon. Paradoxically, new friendship and/or love might also blossom. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money – especially Tuesday eve to Wednesday midnight. A new earning (or spending) project brews these two days – it might be luckily connected to an investment or money partnership/association. (Unusual example: your spouse finds employment for you.) This is a good interval (Tuesday eve/night) to purchase land, food/shelter items, children’s items, electronics and high-tech, especially if they’re tools of your trade. A sensual relationship might blossom – but it would not suit marriage. Earlier, Sunday/Monday, your charisma, energy soar. Errands, calls, Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high – and surge even higher midweek. Start important things, make contact, see and be seen. If you’re single, someone’s attracted. Though you hold the short-term advantage, they hold the long-term one. You might have to make the first move (or genuflection). Remember, until next July you will benefit hugely from approaching others, being a team player, forging a link in love or business. Throw aside false pride: embrace good fortune. Rest, plan Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Chase money, Thursday eve onward. Buy on Friday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to retreat, rest and plan rather than charge into the hurly- burly world. Your energy is low, especially midweek. Hopes rise Sunday eve to Tuesday; you’re inspired in social zones, fooled in monetary ones. Midweek deepens your thoughts: be sure to fulfill governmental, institutional or head office requirements, paperwork. Your energy and charisma rise somewhat late Thursday to midday Saturday. A wish could come true (Friday) – but more probably, you will take a step toward fulfillment of a much larger wish or life goal, one that might take 1015 years to manifest: good! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Wishes can come true, especially midweek. Your social life continues to expand or buoy you. Life’s good! Be ambitious Sunday p.m. to Tuesday noon – don’t mix money and friendship. Popularity, light romance, entertainment, group functions arrive Tuesday to Thursday – welcome these. Envision your future, make plans. (Try this: after 5 p.m. PST, but before 9:30, write your deepest wish on a blank paper, fold it in half twice, then put it under your mattress. Leave it there until you forget about it.) Retreat, rest Thursday eve to Saturday noon – after this, your energy soars. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Charge after your ambitions, especially midweek, when a new project, career role,or status opportunity begins to form.Though Sunday morn is misty, mysterious, the afternoon into Tuesday bring wisdom and a mellow mood. A subtle difficulty might underlie peer relationships, but relations with higher-ups will improve over the few weeks ahead. The world looks bright, happy Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon – your popularity rises, light romance or other social joys arrive, and a minor wish (about money?) might come true. By Saturday eve, withdraw to rest and contemplate. timstephens@shaw.ca
