Tom Murray Tax-increase opponent

Taxation

Pitt man lobbies for zero Tom Murray doesn’t want taxes to rise. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Webster’s Corners students Nayla MacCorkindale, Harmony Kline, Cassidy McKay, Elijah Baher, and Jane Wetherill are asking all students throughout the district to wear jerseys on Friday and donate a toonie to support local kids who can’t afford to take part in sports.

Jersey challenge bolsters KidSport

Webster’s Corner Elementary students want to raise serious coin for children in sports. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

It’s not just because the NHL is back. But the timing is good for a Jersey Day fundraiser whereby Webster’s Corners Elementary is challenging students and staff at all schools in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, as well as the staff at the two municipal halls to wear a jersey – for any sport – and donate at least a toonie to the local chapter of KidSport.

Tanya Dailey, principal at the east Maple Ridge school, and the school’s culture club want to focus their fundraising efforts locally, and after helping the Friends In Need Food Bank and the Caring Place already this school year, they want to help low-income families get their kids taking part in sports. It is part of the school’s “pay it forward” philosophy. “I think it’s important to keep focused locally,” Dailey said. “Kids can relate [to issues] closer to home.” The culture club students take part in sports themselves, from cheer leading to basketball, and they want other kids to have the same opportunities.

PAY OFF HIGH INTEREST CREDIT CARD DEBT

“Some people don’t have enough money to do sports, and we want them to have a chance to do sports... when they really want to,” said Grade 5 student and culture club member Nayla MacCorkindale. Dailey and her students want to raise $5,000 this Friday. They have delivered donation cans to all six high schools and all elementary schools throughout the two communities. There is also a donation jar at Cooper’s Foods on Dewdney Trunk Road and 240th Street, and at Save-On-Foods at Valley Fair Mall. Students and staff are encouraged to donate at least a toonie, but larger amounts will also be accepted.

Cheques can be made out to KidSport or to Webster’s Corners Elementary. Next week, the school’s culture club will start its giant math lesson of counting the money. The District of Maple Ridge is encouraging its staff to take part in the jersey day fundraiser, and a jersey day bucket will be at the front desk at municipal hall. “We hear time and time again how much this program has impacted individuals and families,” said Fred Armstrong, communications manager for the District. For more information on the local chapter of KidSport, email the president Len Walters at lenndeb@telus.net.

Online, all the time...

The fur was flying at Pitt Meadows’ City hall after another exchange between council and a tax opponent at a council meeting Tuesday night. Tom Murray recently delivered a petition of 1,200 signatures from people who opposed a tax increase and wanted to know what a zero per cent tax increase would look like. But his request has yet to be answered. After months of pleading and petitioning, Murray said Tuesday he’s fed up. “There’s no doubt that I’m not everyone’s favourite person, but I feel I must continue my saga in order to honour my fellow residents here in Pitt Meadows,” Murray said at the council meeting.

Glazer Jason Halldorson of Accent Maple Ridge Glass fixed one of the smashed jewelry cases at Hammond Jewellery on Wednesday afternoon. Ridge jewelry store. “It was very upsetting to the staff,” he added. This is the first time since the Davey family bought Hammond Jewellery four years ago that they’ve been robbed. Ridge Meadows general duty and serious crimes officers are leading the investigation, with help from the integrated forensic identification team. Store staff and nearby witnesses are being interviewed. Officers are also reviewing surveillance footage, and looking for information about a light coloured SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer or

Expedition, that was in the vicinity at the time of the heist. RCMP confirmed the suspects escaped in a vehicle. Local Mounties are also communicating with other police agencies in the Lower Mainland, to see if this crime parallels others in the region recently. Fleugel described it as a “well thought-out” crime, and he’s hoping the public can help solve it. Anyone with information about this crime, the vehicle, or the suspects is asked to call the local RCMP at 604-463-6251, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477.

A local jeweller and his staff got the fright of their lives Tuesday, when three armed bandits wearing disguises robbed their store. Hammond Jewellery, at 20832 Lougheed Hwy., was the target of a smash and grab, according to manager Dean Davey. “They definitely knew what they were doing,” Davey told The TIMES. The bandits entered at about 3 p.m. on Jan. 15, ordering the five employees to the ground. There were no customers in the store at the time. Weapons were produced, but no one was injured in what RCMP Insp. Dave Fleugel described as a “brazen daytime robbery.” Five cases were smashed during the robbery, and a yet-undetermined quantity of jewelry was taken. “It felt like a long time, but it probably was over quickly,” Davey said about the length of time thieves were in the historic Maple

Golden Ears

Umbrellas offer shelter for shoppers Park plan drafted

Fuller Watson is one of the first sponsors of the BIA’s umbrella initiative. mrantanen@mrtimes.com

An open house provides a forum to comment on the future of a provincial park.

The head of the business improvement association wants to see a “sea of umbrellas” in rainy Haney. Bright orange umbrellas will be appearing in stores throughout the downtown Maple Ridge area, an initiative of the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association. The first 100 umbrellas have been made up with the names of the first six sponsors who helped pay for phase one of the program. And there are six other sponsors lined up for the next batch, said Ineke Boekhorst, executive director of the BIA. Boekhorst delivered umbrellas to Fuller Watson on Tuesday morning as the furniture and appliance store was one of the first companies to jump aboard. “Businesses really like it... it fits with rainy Haney,” Boekhorst said. Justin Fuller, who represents the third generation of the Fuller family at the store on 224th Street and Lougheed Highway, said he hopes the umbrellas

A 50-year-old plan is being revised to manage one of the most popular parks in the province – Golden Ears Provincial Park. The public is invited to an open house on Jan. 31 about a new plan being developed for the park. The plan has been developed to replace the original management plan that was written in 1963 and revised in 1976. The open house is meant to garner input on how the park will be managed in the future. The draft plan gives a vision for the park, identifies the features of the park, and talks about management issues. The open house is at the Maple Ridge Library, Fraser Room, on Jan. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. There is another open house on Jan. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at UBC Robson Square in Vancouver, Room C225. Information about the plan can be found at www.env. gov.bc.ca/bcparks/planning.

help keep shoppers dry and offer “good customer service.” He added he also hopes the program promotes downtown businesses as well. The courtesy umbrellas will be in businesses in the downtown

area for anyone to pick up and use and then deposit at another downtown business. The business association has hundreds of umbrellas stands, and Boekhorst is hoping they will be in businesses over the

next while, especially street-level businesses. For a list of business that have courtesy umbrellas, people can go to the downtown Maple Ridge BIA’s website at www. downtownmapleridge.ca.

Our View

Turn it about

Now is the time for the BC Liberals to steal some ideas that members of the Opposition like to raise before an election… and then conveniently forget after forming government themselves. Premier Christy Clark is in the perfect position to act on ideas that politicians prefer to study and discuss, but tend to slip from their memories after the votes are counted. After all, the BC Liberals can’t seriously be thinking that they’ll still be on the government side of the legislature when the election dust settles this May. They don’t have to worry about instituting important legislation that may be unpalatable to voters, because frankly, an overwhelming number of voters already find the BC Liberals unpalatable anyway. So they don’t have to worry whether they will be boxing themselves in by making rules now that they’ll regret having to follow later. In fact, they have a rare opportunity to do something that should have been done long ago – and the best part is that they could saddle the (probably) incoming NDP government with its own suggestion. The B.C. NDP says it wants provincial legislation prohibiting any government from using public money on advertising to pat itself on the back – clearly in response to the millions of tax dollars that the BC Liberal government is spending to promote its own programs and put a positive spin on some rather questionable labour and general economic statistics. We all know it’s mostly a political ploy on the part of the NDP – and a ploy that has teeth, because ordinary citizens are truly fed up with this waste of their tax money. But if the Clark government were to introduce and pass such legislation before May, the incoming NDP government would be forced to abide by the very restraint they are calling for now, instead of conveniently forgetting about it after they are in charge. No loss to the BC Liberals – and the real winners would be the taxpaying public. – B.G.

Suicide

Time offers fresh view on life

Dear Editor, Can you use this in your newspaper to help other young people who want to leave this earth before their time? I felt like taking my own life at one time (I was 30 years old) and almost did (drive the car off the road over a cliff), in Idaho! But, something held me back – my thought at the time was, “Wait, maybe tomorrow, and see how you feel.” I have had 52 years of life past that time, and have lived a wonderful life. There was so much more to come! For instance: I travelled to Hawaii twice, to Alaska on a cruise, and four times to Europe to discover it, and took a cruise to the Caribbean. I went on to meet other people, para-

chuted out of a plane (to see what that was like), worked in a super job for 31 years, joined the reserve army in my spare time (rank of MWO) and stayed for 21 years, etc. My life has been wonderful, and God has been with me all the time. I had the time to sit with my brother and talk, and hold his hand as he lay dying of cancer. We talked about our days together in our young life, what it was going to be like when we leave this earth, about his and my faith in God, etc. You can never begin to see how much more there is in life if you do not stay around to see it. So think before you leap. Florence Reid, Pitt Meadows

Limit needed on dangerous bridge

Dear Editor, I have been in contact with the mayor for approximately two years, as well as with the person in charge of road signs, regarding the speed limits over the Neaves Road bridge in Pitt

Just Saying

Robson erred on ownership

Dear Editor, Gordy Robson made some valid points about our B.C. ferry system [BC Ferries needs another Captain Terry, Dec. 24 Just Saying, TIMES], but he made a huge error in saying Black Ball Ferries was owned by the CPR. It was owned by the Peabody interests of Seattle, and registered as Black Ball Lines (Canada) Ltd. In 1958 the CPR fleet, under federal charter, was struck first and Premier W.A.C. Bennett’s government could not intervene. Black Ball was struck shortly after. But as a provincially chartered company, it was subject to B.C. legislation. Eventually, all its crews defied back-to-work orders, and the only connection on and off Vancouver Island for motorists was via Washington State Ferries running between Sidney and Anacortes. That isolation caused Bennett to create a governmentowned ferry service, with Captain Harry Terry’s help. Ron Armstrong, Victoria

bridge says slow to 30 km/ h, but 90 to 95 per cent of drivers fly across at speeds of 60 to 70 km/h, and at times even faster. I’ve been asking the mayor to have that yellow sign changed to a white sign, setting the maximum speed at 30 km/h. What could that cost, $50-$100? What’s someone’s life worth, maybe your friend, relative, or a mother pushing her baby across this road? One day, someone will die there. The mayor has asked me to write down the licence numbers of the speeding cars and trucks, and letters will be sent to them. First, that’s not my job. And second, I don’t have the time to get out a pen to write down the numbers, because of their speed. That bridge has a large crown on it, and it’s difficult to see the cars and trucks coming. Change the sign! Herbert Elson, Maple Ridge

Idle No More

Prejudice stands in way of fairness

Dear Editor, It seems the native population does not have a lot of fans. It is claimed Idle No More is not being realistic. After hundreds of years of accumulated injustices, any attempt to rectify the situation is bound to look a might convoluted. The popular myth says they are lazy parasites living off the hard work of all the rest of us upstanding citizens, and they want to steal my house.

Many Canadians just can’t fathom why – after hundreds of years of genocide, residential schools, racial discrimination, Herculean attempts by the Canadian government to wipe out their languages and culture and customs, stamp acts, potlatch laws, theft and destruction of their lands and children, and no serious attempts to live up to or sign treaties with the original stewards of this country – they can’t just be happy

with what we give them. We have taken away most of their land, and in doing so, their customs and way of life, and given them nothing but a bag of beads. The First Nations people are by far the poorest demographic in Canada, with the average reserve wage of less than $12,000 a year, and due to the two per cent cap on core services in place since 1996, it only gets worse every year. If this situation is to change, the First Nations will have to go outside of Canada for any justice, as the Canadian government and many Canadian people are racially prejudiced against the First Nations.

Dress sale helps ease budget strain of grad costs Grad dresses priced around $200 to $350 will be sold next weekend at the Greg Moore Youth Centre. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Graduating from high school has become an elaborate affair, and with it often comes a high cost. To relieve some of those costs, Thomas Haney Secondary has been collecting grad dresses – and one tuxedo so far – and they will be sold on consignment at the Greg Moore Youth Centre on Jan. 26 and 27. The dresses that have been brought in for the Twice in a Lifetime event range in colour, size, and style, said Yvonne Murray, a clerk at Thomas Haney Secondary who is helping organize the event. The dress owners paid a $25 fee to take part, and this money will go towards Putting on the Glitz, a program that helps pay for the expensive grad costs of low-income students referred through school counsellors and local agencies. But with tight budgets, graduation can be an expensive time for even the average family. Some people search on CraigsList or other places for

used grad dresses, Murray said, and this sale will offer another opportunity to find a dress. The dresses are typically priced between $200 and $350, and the price is set by the owner of the dress, Murray said. Finding an affordable dress is “just a relief,” said Murray, who herself had two daughters live the Grade 12 graduation experience. If anyone has a grad dress they would still like to sell on consignment at the Twice in a Lifetime event, they should call Murray at Thomas Haney Secondary, 604-463-2001. Dresses will be accepted until Wednesday, Jan. 23. The sale will take place on Saturday, Jan. 26 and Sunday, Jan. 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Greg Moore Youth Centre, in the multipurpose room. The dresses can only be purchased with cash, Murray said.

Students show they care Edith McDermott Grade 7 student Simi Deol, as well as Grade 6 students Mateo Carreras, Bryan Anca, and Evan Peter were some of the youngsters who knitted scarves during the Christmas season. The scarves are just a few of the items that were collected at the school for hamper families, Cythera Transition House, and the Caring Place. The school had a “giving tree” in the weeks leading up to Christmas in their foyer full of pyjamas and surrounded by the kinds of gifts, donated by the school’s students.

Theatre

Ridge orchestra accompanies nostalgic musical Bergthorson Academy of Music put on a familyfriendly classic at The ACT. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Since 1939, the movie version of The Wizard of Oz has been entertaining generations of families. So, largely for nostalgic reasons, a local production, put on by the Bergthorson Academy of Music and directed by one of its instructors, Rayne Beveridge, will stick close to its cinematic counterpart. “We’re trying to stay as true to the types of characters you saw in the movie,” Beveridge said about the musical theatre production set to open this Friday. The Wizard of Oz will be showing at The ACT this weekend, with the familiar characters of Dorothy and her ruby slippers, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow. They will be joined on stage by a cast of good and evil characters, witches and munchkins, and of course, the wizard who helps Dorothy get home to Kansas after her adventures in Oz. Beveridge dubbed the musical a “family-friendly show,” that will appeal to the multitude of people who have seen the movie starring Judy Garland. In addition to colourful costumes and a live orchestra, at least one parent has helped put together elaborate sets, despite a low budget. Marc Deroche built a 16-foothigh balloon and a house – six feet by six feet – that spins in the tornado. This is the third musical put on by Bergthorson that incorporates the recently formed Ridge Meadows Orchestra. The orchestra performed during productions of Iolanthe and Spamalot.

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Madison Deroche (left) portrays the cowardly lion, Ali Watson is in the main role of Dorothy, Laura Dand is wielding an axe as the tin man, and Faith Shulman is stuffed with straw as the scarecrow. Wyatt Plume (inset) is mayor of the munchkins, here played by Jordyn Flamma and Carmelina Bryant. The orchestra has expanded to percussion. 24 pieces, and in this production Beveridge also conducts the will include four violins, a viola, orchestra – at the same time four cellos, a French horn, oboe, as he’s studying conducting at clarinet, saxophone, flutes, and Kwantlen University. The orchestra has been in existence for more than a year and Beveridge said it is becoming a “more and more solid group.”

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

He hopes next year the orchestra will be ready to perform a full concert. The musical theatre performance of The Wizard of Oz is also a partnership with The ACT, which helps promote the performances and provides space for the performance. The Wizard of Oz will be on the main stage of The ACT on this Friday and Saturday. Performances are on Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 19 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The musical will be performed in concert Jonathan Reichert and the Ridge Meadows Orchestra. Tickets are $12 in advance, four for $40, or $15 at the door. Tickets can be bought by calling 604-4762787, by going to www. theactmapleridge.org, or by going to the box office at The ACT in person.

During a visit to the cooperative market in Panama, Ruskin resident Betsy Van Herwaarden (above) visited with a Kuna native during a tour of the country. She had a picture taken holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES. The longtime Maple Ridge resident – who has been profiled in the TIMES Travellers at least eight times through the years, is off soon for a month-long tour of India, promising to bring back more Traveller photographs. In the meantime, Maple Ridge’s Sherryl and Terry Hansen (left) recently had their picture taken in front of a number of colourful pinatas during a break from beach activities in Costa Azul, just south of San Jose Del Cabo on the Baja Penninsula in Mexico.

Two Maple Ridge couples, Barry and Katherine Charron and Bev and Brian Rioux, recently returned from a 10day Caribbean cruise. Sapphrine Beach on the island of St. Thomas is where they chose to pose for a photograph holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES. Likewise, Aye and Sony Sadana of Pitt Meadows (above) posed with The TIMES oustside Times Square in Hong Kong. They were vacationing in Hong Kong for a week before Christmas, and are heading to Thailand and the Philippines later this year, promising more pictures.

A second in the Troy Landreville/TIMES lives of total strangers, frozen by photography, is the inspiration behind artist Shari Pratt’s exhibit at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery. Using photos spanning the 1940s through to the ’60s, the 49-year-old Maple Ridge artist has created Lost In Time, a collection of acrylic and mixed-media art. A public reception was held Jan. 12, and there will be a free artist presentation this Saturday, Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. inside the gallery. Three years ago, Pratt strolled through an antique shop in New Westminster when she stumbled across an old portrait photo. The subject seemed to speak to her. Time passed and Pratt continued to gather portraits, most of them printed on two-inch by three-inch pieces of black and white photo paper. She accumulated them locally as well as abroad in far-off destinations such as Scotland and Paris. “It was almost like I knew these people,” Pratt said, regarding the subjects of the photos that she used to model her art around. “Like they were a growing family of mine.” Undisclosed This artistic endeavor instructor of Creative Kaos is not unfamiliar territory School of Art in Maple for Pratt – she often uses Ridge. people as her muse.

Credit union offers grads cash Send any local tidbits on business to: smclaren@mrtimes.com

Sylver Scoop by Sylver McLaren

A local credit union put a lot of cash on the table this week aimed at helping secondary and post-secondary students seeking further education – and I’m hopeful some of that coin will be left here with deserving scholars in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. But to qualify, you have to apply, and the deadline is looming. Envision Financial rolled out plans to distribute $33,000 in educational awards. Specifically, they’re giving out 14 awards of $2,000 each to students who demonstrate outstanding school and community involvement. Their deadline is Feb. 28, with criteria and applications available online at www. envisionfinancial.ca/education.

Cafe stomps into bistro biz

Stomping Grounds Coffee House in Pitt Meadows has made some changes. They have added a full kitchen to their cafe and can now host private parties with full menus, provide full service catering, and host bistro nights Thursdays to Saturdays. “This village is our community – it’s what inspired us to start Stomping Grounds Cafe,” said owner Anahi English. The reason they decided to add these

services to their cafe is because they want the community to have a place where they can go for “great food, great wine, and enjoy what Osprey Village has to offer.” English’s mother, Roxana, has joined their team and is resident chef. With more than 15 years experience in the kitchen, she is creating “simple, but delicious meals.” “We are putting in the effort to create a dining experience that is truly community and family inspired,” English said. Their menu can be found at www. stompinggroundscoffeehouse.com.

You & The Law BUS DRIVER RESPONSIBLE FOR PASSENGER’S FALL

Greta J, 52, was recently awarded $40,000 compensation for a severe knee injury she suffered while riding the bus in Victoria. As she stood to open a window, the bus suddenly pulled away from the bus stop, causing her to fall and her left leg to slam forward into the hard plastic seat in front of her. The judge noted that Ms. J cried out in pain when she struck her knee, and while other passengers asked if she was okay, the driver didn’t. “He looked back to see people around a woman acting as if they were concerned about her.” After pulling into the next bus stop to let several people off, he went to the back of the bus, passing by her to help a passenger in a wheelchair “but said nothing to Ms. J and went back to his seat and carried on with the route.” Then when Ms. J, who was the last passenger left on the bus, got off, “she made a remark about the driver’s lack of concern. She said the driver… explained that he did not see what happened [to her] and that he was busy with the ramp for the wheelchair.” “Ms. [J] tried to hop on one leg towards her home but soon realized she would not make it. A couple leaving a restaurant saw her and took her to the hospital.” The bus driver testified that he only braked slightly for a truck in front of him after he pulled away from the bus stop. But the court found his testimony “to indicate a callous attitude to a passenger in possible distress. The effect is to cast doubt on the safety of other aspects of his evidence.” The court preferred Ms. J’s evidence – “that the movement of the bus from the stop was abrupt and forceful, causing her to fall, notwithstanding she had braced herself while opening the window. There were no exigencies of

traffic or other like explanations for this manner of driving.” Bus drivers must use all due, proper and reasonable care and skill to avoid or prevent injury to their passengers. The care required is of a very high degree. In an earlier case, Jane W, 74, who was sitting in the side bench behind the driver reserved for the elderly and handicapped, got up to take her coat off when the bus came to a red light. When the light turned green, and the driver started the bus moving down the hill, she was still struggling to take off her coat. She lost her balance and fell over, and became quadriplegic. The court concluded that the driver was 75% responsible for the accident. B.C. Transit’s policy requires drivers to wait for elderly or disabled passengers to sit down before putting a bus in motion. The court said this was evidence that bus drivers recognize “there is a higher degree of care required to safeguard the elderly or the disabled” than with other passengers. But the court said Mrs. W was partially responsible too. She ought to have known that the bus would soon start to move after the light turned green, and therefore she should have tried to hold on to something while removing her coat. If you’ve been injured in a bus or other traffic accident, consult your lawyer for advice. This column has been written with the assistance of DANIEL C. RICHARDSON.

Westwood Motorcycle Racing Club

Street-bike racing runs in family At 48, Maple Ridge motorcycle racer Ken LaLonde continues to satisfy his need for speed. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

A scary incident in Washington State 30 years ago solidified Ken LaLonde’s belief that he belonged on the back of a motorcycle. The mishap didn’t strike any fear of riding in him. Quite the contrary, LaLonde said, he felt relatively calm seconds after it happened. LaLonde’s parents were avid riders, and as a result, he was raised around motorcycles. He started dirt-bike riding at 11. At 17, the youngest of three brothers accompanied his folks on a motorcycle trip to Arkansas. He and his siblings were invited to join their mom and dad on the journey, all expenses paid, so long as they bought their own bikes. A motivated LaLonde sold his car and used the money to buy his very first street motorcycle. “That was the start of my motorcycling, on the street,” LaLonde said. The sun was sinking under the mountains on the first day of the journey when LaLonde’s tires hit a patch of oil. He figured he was travelling about 80 mph. “I was riding a few hundred yards in front of my parents… and the back end of my motorcycle started slapping back-and-forth,” he recalled. Instinctively, LaLonde threw his feet down on the asphalt, knowing not to hit his brakes too hard. He slid off the road and into the gravel shoulder. “My mother was in tears,” LaLonde said. “She thought for sure she was going to watch her son die. But it didn’t even get my heart going. Instantly, I felt perfectly calm. Instead of, ‘Whoa, I’ll never ride a bike again!’ I thought, ‘You know what? I’ve got this.’” It didn’t take long before LaLonde’s affinity for pushing his bike to its limit got him into hot water. At 19, he lost his license after being issued one too many speeding tickets. That’s how he got into track racing. “I had that need for speed,

said, regarding the race course. Lalonde is one of the few remaining original members of the WMRC. He and 32-year-old teammate Bez Cajee, also a Maple Ridge resident, are the only two fully sponsored riders in Western Canada who don’t actually work in the motorcycle business. Two years shy of his 50th birthday, LaLonde continues to be a dominant force on the River’s Edge course. Aboard a Ducati 1198SP with a small caricature of his British Bulldog Buddy decorating its tail section for inspiration, LaLonde took the checkered flag in 10 of 12 races he was involved in at the Mission track. His other two other wins were part of the Western Canadian Championship, one weekend in Mission, the other at Edmonton’s Stratotech Park Raceway. He finished first in Open Supersport and second in Superbike after his clutch blew up in one of the races in Edmonton. LaLonde is the No. 1 plate holder for B.C. for the Superbike Class (SBK). He’s the first rider in Canada to win the SBK on a twincylinder motorcycle in more than 30 years.

Flames’ scorers singe struggling Panthers

Net drive Sebastien Marshall drove to the hoop against the Kitsilano Blue Demons during the 24th annual Terry Fox Legal Beagle Invitational. The topranked Blue Demons clawed to a 69-59 victory during the Triple A boys basketball tournament hosted by Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Secondary. On Thursday, the Pitt Meadows senior boys lost 88-65 to the White Rock Christian Warriors. In Saturday’s game-deciding seventh and eighth place, the Marauders trounced the Vancouver College Fighting Irish 80-51 in what Pitt Meadows coach Rich Goulet called the “best game of the year” for his team.

Nolan Wallinger scored twice to lead Ridge Meadows to a much-needed 7-4 win over Port Moody.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The month ahead features sex, intimacy, high finance (investments, debt, etc.) mysteries and research, health diagnosis, lifestyle changes, commitment and consequence. This area is super-charged now; testosterone is high; so is human attraction. You could be tempted to stray. Investing in (or researching in) your career can yield benefits. Sunday’s friendly, happy, but avoid practical goals. Retreat to rest, plan, and fulfill old obligations Monday/Tuesday: you might receive a “gift” for your charitable or spiritual efforts. Your energy and charisma soar Wednesday eve to Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead emphasize relationships, opportunity and opposition, negotiation, dealings with the public, relocation possibilities and fresh new horizons. You feel ambitious Sunday, but a nice rest will gain more. Your popularity rises Monday to Wednesday. Social delights, light romance, entertainment, optimism and wish fulfillment flow in. Someone you meet or woo could be a potential, viable life mate. Retreat Wednesday night to Friday: rest, contemplate, plan, be spiritual, charitable. Your energy, charisma and timing soar Saturday – approach someone to solve a problem. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday’s mellow, loving, but don’t start major projects – contemplate, or read. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday – great luck accompanies you. A month of work and health concerns has just begun (Jan. 19) and this dovetails splendidly with your career, prestige and status desires. Monday/Tuesday (not so much Wednesday) are one of the prime intervals in this trend – if you work eagerly, you gain. Approach higher-ups with a plan or proposal those two days. Friends, popularity and optimism visit you Thursday/Friday. Retreat for some “down time” Saturday. Contemplate love barriers.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead bring social joys, popularity, entertainment, light romance, group activities and wish fulfillment – in an even stronger dose than most Januaries/Februaries. Life seems worthwhile again! Though the pressure is off at work, bosses still favour you, so a moment of socializing with them (say Monday, Tuesday) can’t hurt. Sunday’s for shopping – early, before ten. Travel, paperwork, casual friends, errands and variety fill Monday/Tuesday – be curious. Head for home Wednesday eve to Friday: be sluggish, recuperate, nurture family. Romance crescendos Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: An ambitious month begins. Your energy and magnetism are tops Sunday, but there’s little worth doing. Charge after money and possessions Monday/Tuesday – a great two days for investments, wiping out debt and sensual gratification. Your career and social reputation face a lucky opening. Trips, errands, paperwork and casual friends/siblings fill Wednesday eve to Friday: good mixes with bad, so be on your toes. Legal and governmental zones might not go well, but your career faces even more opportunity, If you have an ambitious hunch, act on it without delay. Home, family Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead feature intellectual activities, far travel, love and weddings, cultural projects, higher learning, religion, philosophy, insurance and statistics. The small of these will proceed swiftly, but the big is sluggish, will grow Jan. 30 onward. Retreat and rest Sunday: DON’T handle sharp equipment. Your energy, magnetism, sense of timing and effectiveness soar Monday/Tuesday: start new projects, declare your love, see and be seen (and heard!). Chase money Wednesday eve to Friday noon: open doors and barriers mingle: buy cautiously. Errands and friends, Saturday.

Jan. 20 - Jan. 26, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of romance, creativity, of pleasure, charming children and speculative urges starts now. Indulge some of those speculative urges – you’re on a winning streak! There will be a bump, especially around Jan. 30 (next week) – one that might raise the problem of money or unequal socio-economic positions. And in general, if you want to turn love into living (i.e., co-habitation) or marriage, you face problems involving domesticity: where you live, or step-kids, etc. Still, you could hardly pick a better time this decade, to love and mate! Monday/Tuesday show how/why. Lucky! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Until late February, examine your relationships and projects – jettison the old, stale and unworkable, to make room for the new little green shoots that you now must nurture. Err on the side of gentleness in this, for you are temperamental all January in domestic and other situations – “dumping someone” roughly can create a long-term enemy. At home, kindness is key. In gardening, go light on fertilizer. Sunday’s intriguing but without result. Sexual urges, mysteries, high finance, investments, fill Monday-Wednesday – luckily so! Mellow thoughts late week. Be ambitious Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead fill with casual friends, siblings, errands, short trips, communications, details, reports and paperwork. It’s a very busy but not terribly important time. Send “love letters” over the two weeks ahead, both literally and metaphorically (e.g., the right glance or tone of voice is a “letter” also). Tackle routine chores Sunday – nothing big. Relationships excite and are splendidly lucky Monday/Tuesday – be eager to join, diplomatic, flexible: others hold the power. Deeper themes – sex, intimacy, financial commitments – need caution late week. Mellow joy Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The month ahead features money and possessions. You have already experienced heightened money flows since late December: now these become more serious, as your “net worth” is affected. So it’s very important to stop useless, nervous or frivolous outflows, and to invest, if you do, carefully.The best time to invest for machinery, tools, work is Monday/Tuesday – two great days to apply for employment or begin a project, also. The best time for other types of investment (or reducing debt) is January 27. Sunday’s beautiful but useless. Relationships demand care Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, effectiveness, timing and charisma reach a yearly high over the next few weeks. Start important projects, see and be seen, vie for romance (one of the bigger ones of your life seems likely to arrive, or has arrived, between June 2012 and June 2013). Ask favours, they’ll be granted. Sunday’s for rest, period. Romance, a creative surge, charming kids, speculative success, fill a splendidly lucky Monday/ Tuesday (and Wednesday, but with little result). Tackle chores Thursday/Friday – keep an eye on safety. Relationships contain a hidden barrier Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Withdraw mildly now to late February. This is your recuperation time of year: rest, protect your health, contemplate where you stand now and make plans for future action. Be charitable, spiritual – it will come back to you. You feel like visiting or communicating Sunday: little result. Charge into domestic, real estate, gardening, nutrition, children, security and retirement zones Monday/Tuesday – you’ll succeed, in major ways! Romantic notions, creative urges and pleasure drives swell Thursday/Friday, but you might be wise to let these remain notions only. Tackle chores Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
