We Make the World’s Best Mattress Today, many people prefer a memory foam mattress for its pressure-relieving comfort, ability to conform and adapt to each person’s body, and outstanding motion isolation. Even so, traditional memory foam technology hasn’t changed much since it was invented more than 40 years ago. While it can provide great comfort to many, others find that memory foam mattresses can sleep too hot, sink in too deeply or make it hard to adjust sleep positions in the night. Isn’t it about time that someone reinvented memory foam?

LIMITED TIME OFFER

Introducing the new iComfort Sleep System by Serta, featuring our Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam - the world’s first memory foam infused with the support and cooling touch of Serta’s MicroSupport™ gel. This revolutionary new memory foam is designed to deliver superior pressure relief and more targeted support while sleeping cooler than ordinary memory foam. Plus, it is antimicrobial and dust mite resistant to help protect your mattress from potential allergens.

Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin praised The TIMES for bringing an innovative and exciting new technology to local residents, offering another layer to its stories.

Mayors psyched about Layar Local residents being given access to more community information is ‘great.’

Community leaders in both Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge are praising a new technology that enhances The TIMES, and makes it easier and more convenient for residents to access additional information – whether it be with a news story or an advertisement – from their smartphones and tablets. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters and Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin were among the first to congratulate The TIMES for introducing Layar into the pages of its paper, and in doing so making interaction between print and digital media possible.

“As the mayor of the City of Pitt Meadows, I realize the significance of both print and digital media, as well as the role they play in today’s society,” Walters said. “Written stories that concern Pitt Meadows can have more detail and background added, thereby enhancing the complete story and helping to fill in any gaps that may occur,” the City mayor added. She described it as “cutting edge” and said the City will use all the benefits offered through this augmented reality, including sharing links to their website, videos, photos, and other social media venues. “Increasing our ability to connect with our citizens is a good thing,” Walters said. Daykin shares her sentiment, describing the new dimension of The TIMES as a “great new

innovation” that brings the digital and print media together. “Back in the 90s, the District of Maple Ridge, along with a lot of other organizations hit the web,” he said. Fast forward almost two decades, and now thousands of people a month visit www.mapleridge.ca. Thanks to Layar links offered through The TIMES to such things as council meetings, event calendars, and parks and rec information, even more people can discover all that Maple Ridge has to offer. “Layar technologies ties right in with Maple Ridge’s focus on the technology industry and again it combines print technology with digital media and how people get their information,” Daykin said, also hailing it as a “great” way for businesses to reach out, too.

Augmented reality

Community excited by added connections A few different people in town describe how today’s new interactive TIMES newspaper can help them. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@mrtimes.com

Businesses and non-profits, sport clubs and staff at The TIMES are all excited about the introduction of augmented reality to the pages of today’s newspaper. Readers are the real winners in this equation, said TIMES editor Bob Groeneveld. The way photos can come alive on the page is almost Harry Potter magic, he said, describing how this community’s newspaper can now link readers almost flawlessly to pertinent websites, videos, and social media venues thanks to an app called Layar. Describing Layar as the “latest innovation in print advertising,” TIMES sales and creative manager Livia Mior explained

that the Layar program has been adopted by hundreds of European magazines. But The TIMES’ parent company is now the first newspaper chain in the world to embrace this technology. The possibilities to link customers and businesses are “almost limitless,” she said, and Greg Sheppard, a sales consultant with Haney Sewing and Sound, concurs. “This interactive technology is pretty exciting,” Sheppard said. He believes it will give his long-standing family business more creative control over their messaging, by allowing them to add multiple layers of content and information to their newspaper ads. On the entertainment front, Sharon Malone of the Emerald Pig Theatrical Society immediately saw a benefit to her group. Stories about her drama club can now be linked to YouTube trailers for their upcoming shows, the group’s website, or even to an online tickets buying option. Point your smartphone at this picture, continued on page A5… and watch the newspaper come alive.

doing. Tom Cameron, president of the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Agricultural Association, was quick to laud all that comes with this new and improved version of The TIMES. “…It’s now easier than making instant puddin’,” for non-profit organizations in town to get information out to a large contingent of locals who faithfully read The TIMES, he said. And that’s important, whether it’s a group hosting an event like the summer fair he’s currently organizing, or a charity that’s in need of funds or volunteers, Cameron said. “Without question, it will be very beneficial to any not-for-profit association or group…,” Cameron said, “You’ll have to check it out,” he added.

Andrew Ilaender, owner of the Ridge Meadows Flames junior hockey team, can’t wait to interact more with TIMES readers through this new augmented reality. For instance, he’s anxious to bring readers some of the game highlight on a regular basis, confident that once people see how talented these young athletes are, they’ll want to see the games in person Friday nights at Planet Ice. “You won’t be disappointed,” he said, noting that they now have a couple hundred people who faithfully attend each home game, and he’d like to at least double that number before the end of the season. Through The TIMES, and this new technology, the Flames would also like to start profiling players, and specifically the weekly recipients of the Hard Hat Collision Award. “Anything to have our people watching our junior hockey is a good thing,” Ilaender said. Recognizing that more and more people are now using smartphones and tablets – instead of standard phones and computers – to link to the rest of the world, he welcomes any extra tools available to

Where am “i”?

Interactive contest begins

In connection with today’s launch of The TIMES as a multi-dimensional print medium, here’s a fun and potentially rewarding way for readers to test out the cool new technology. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

For those who have passed by The TIMES office of late, the missing “i” from our sign might have been apparent. While the natural instinct would be to replace it, instead, publisher Spencer Levan has conceived of a fun contest to help The TIMES readers test their knowledge of the community, while also offering them exciting ways to experiment with this new and innovative, interactive newspaper. Levan is launching the “Where am ‘i’?” contest, and he’s asking readers to help locate the missing “i.” Okay, the “i” from our sign is not actually missing, although it’s no longer affixed to the building. So each week for the next year, our team will take pictures of that “i” in different locations around town – like this one above – and ask readers to Like

Watch for a new picture every Thursday. Facebook us your answer before 9 a.m. each Monday morning, and watch for the name of the weekly winner, as well as the answer, and next week’s picture. “Thanks in advance for taking part in our contest,” Levan said. “We hope this is just one fun and exciting way that we can help make our award-winning community newspaper an invaluable part of your life.”

Our View

Scan pages for future

You’ll have noticed something very different about today’s edition of The TIMES by now. Scan this The difference goes page with far beyond the fact that there appears to be two front pages. If you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone, the difference should be remarkable – you’ve been looking into the future… right through our pages. For those who are not yet equipped with smartphones, or who haven’t yet downloaded the free Layar app that allows you to see the augmented reality embedded in your community newspaper, let us offer a bit of explanation. The first “front page” offers a glimpse into some of the augmentations that Layar offers our advertisers and readers. Train your Layar-app-enhanced smartphone on the second front page, and watch the photo come alive before your eyes, as TIMES publisher Spencer Levan discusses exciting possibilities that augmented reality offers for those who dare to step into the future with us. Direct access through your smartphone turns our newspaper pages into an extension of the Internet. Call and email buttons offer instant interaction with our editor, our reporters, our advertisers, and community groups and services. Connect directly to social media, like Facebook and Twitter. Indeed, scan this page with your Layar app, and you’ll find some of those very possibilities jump out of the page to you. Nearly every page of today’s edition can be scanned for embedded information. However, if you intend to walk more slowly into the future, don’t worry. While we recommend that you take advantage of Layar’s augmented reality to gain a full experience of what we have to offer, The TIMES will continue to provide a solid accounting of community news, events, and activities, with or without enhanced reality. – B.G.

More than luck needed to beat meters

Dear Editor, I wish Cheryl all the luck in her fight to refuse a product that she rightly feels is a hazard to herself and her children’s health and is being installed on her property against her wishes.

The sad part of this whole despicable exercise is that, only months after installing thousands of Smart Meters did BC Hydro think to test those very meters, and the truth is that, even if she wins her gallant fight, it will

Emergency aid

Armed forces always ready

Dear Editor, When it comes to natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes and wildfires, Canadians can rely upon our hardworking men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces for help when it’s needed most. While our Conservative government will always stand up for the safety of Canadians and their families, what we will not do is force local municipalities to pay for emergency services in the event of a natural disaster. Despite media speculation, Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, has confirmed there has been no change in policy regarding cost recovery in these types of situations. Yet, in an effort to always take the management of public funds seriously, we will consider cost recovery from other federal departments only (such as Public Safety, for example), when they request that DND provide assistance to a province or municipality. These will be made on a case-by-case basis. Canadians can rest assured that the Canadian Armed Forces has always been and always will be ready and able to assist at all times. Randy Kamp, MP, Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission

Freedom of speech

T-shirts’ message questioned

Dear Editor, Prince Rupert teachers are wearing T-shirts bearing Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The first right and freedom, 2(a), is the freedom of religion. Teachers are not allowed to proselytize their religious beliefs in school, so why should their political ideology be indoctrinated to a young, captive audience? Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

be a classic case of “winning the battle and losing the war,” because according to studies done at Pitt Lake last summer, those meters emit non-ionizing radiation whose health effects are not really understood at this time, especially as pertains to children, and those waves travel at least 2.5 kilometres, and that is a minimum, as that was the last time I talked to the researchers and it was still registering on their equipment. For those for whom personal security is an issue, they were also testing new hi-tech meters capable of even more lines of code. What they would be used for, I can only guess, but if you are an activist or person of interest, you might want to check that you have the same Smart Meter as everyone else. Unfortunately if you win the right not to have a meter, it is sadly a hollow victory, as you personally will not have a Smart Meter at your home, but your home nonetheless will be at the centre of a minimum five-kilometre diameter circle of thousands of nonionizing radiation-emitting Smart Meters polluting your home with unwanted, possibly deadly radiation.

Hospital regular holds benefit

Backed by an all-star lineup of musicians, James Rogers will perform for a good cause on Feb. 8. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Metaphorically, James Rogers has little reason to sing the blues these days. But the Maple Ridge guitarist and vocalist does anyway, to the delight of his fans and, for one night only on Friday, Feb. 8 at Kingfishers Waterfront Bar & Grill, as a benefit for the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. The frontman of the James Buddy Rogers band, Rogers’ latest musical offering has taken flight. My Guitar’s My Only Friend, produced

BEAT SH THE RU GET KS!* C U B 0 1

and co-written by Tom Lavin from the Power Blues Band, has been syndicated on more than 500 radio stations worldwide. My Guitar was recently voted as the No. 2 blues album in Canada for 2012 through Blind Lemon Radio, and is getting high rotation radio play while hitting all the blues charts on a weekly basis. Rogers is playing in his hometown tomorrow night to benefit the hospital of which he has a special connection. Raised in Maple Ridge, Rogers has spent his fair share of time at Ridge Meadows Hospital (RMH), both as a somewhat accident-prone young lad and later as an expectant father. Two of his three daughters were born at the hospital and he has had many broken bones treated there.

Property Brothers grow TV presence

Twins who hail from Maple Ridge will be back in town in March.

by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

John Aldolph (top) honed his skills throughout his many years in the welding and blacksmith businesses. A blacksmithing student cooled off a piece that just came out of the forge. Karen Papp, (left) was proud of the hook she smithed. Jeff Chenatte (above, far right) was more than happy to step aside and let John Adolph run the forge.

Maple Ridge’s Drew and Jonathan Scott are starring in a brand-new property adventure show, as they help homeowners find their dream home, then upgrade and sell their existing home. Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers premiered last month on the W Network and is a spinoff of sorts from their original show Property Brothers. Drew is the real estate agent, while Jonathan is the contractor, both of them earning their respective licences in Alberta, where they headed after graduating from high school in Maple Ridge. In Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers, as soon as Drew finds the right home, the race is on to buy the dream house and sell their old house quickly before breaking their budget with two mortgages. Also coming soon for the identical twins is this summer’s Brother vs. Brother. In the six-part series, each brother will pick a team of home improvement experts to renovate a property, with the goal of raising the value more than the other team. A competitor who didn’t succeed at the challenge will be eliminated at the end of each episode. Drew and Jonathan are also giving fans an allaccess, unedited, behind-the-scenes look at their lives between filming with BroCam, a collection of one to two minute webisodes. The twins will be in town to film Brother vs. Brother in March, according to Danielle Sefton, publicist for Corus Eentertainment.

Master smith shows off skills

A well-known blacksmith attended a class at the museum. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Blacksmith Jeff Chenatte couldn’t believe his eyes when a legend walked through the doors at the Pitt Meadows Museum and Archives last Saturday. Chenatte was hosting a threehour introduction to blacksmithing class and was shocked to see John Adolph, who is a well-known retired

blacksmith instructor from University of the Fraser Valley. “Well, I read about this class in the newspaper and I told my wife that I had to come and check him out,” said Adolph about Chenatte. The Maple Ridge resident showed up at the class with his wife Pat, who happily watched her husband come alive with excitement while showing off his skills. In 1950, at the end of his apprenticeship, Adolph received some advice from his master that he still lives by to this day. “Steal with your eyes as much

as you can steal and nobody can take that away from you, but most importantly, share that knowledge with as many people as you can and you will be rewarded 1,000 times over,” he said. He still does a lot of consulting work even though he retired from Dillanger Construction 16 years ago. He worked there for 40 years. “I specialize in flame straightening or heat shrinking. In other words, call me the steel whisperer.” Chenatte was thrilled with the turnout, he said. He had eight people registered but 22 people show up.

Truly lovin’ Layar The Social Chicks by Vicki McLeod

The next big thing is here. Take a gander at this new app.

T

he Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows TIMES has taken the leap into Layar and a quick survey of my social media savvy peeps has generated big buzz about this new medium. Layar (www.layar.com) is an augmented reality (AR) platform that enables smartphone users (iPhone, Android, and tablets for now) to scan, print, copy, and link to an almost infinite number of online sources and resources. And it’s about to rock the print world. According to Layar, the Dutch founders of the platform, the simplest way to explain AR is as a way “of viewing digital information which has been superimposed – or augmented – onto a live view of the physical real world environment around you.” In this case, our local TIMES newspaper. Provided you’ve downloaded the app, you can view a short videoclip, visit my Facebook page, or website or email directly with your questions from this article. Or, it could be any other print publication – magazine, brochure, poster – or packaging, labels, or letterhead.

Fatal crash changes teen lives Following Tuesday’s vigil, the group has been asked to clean up the fence, where many mementos have been left.

A couple dozen teenagers let go of green balloons at a memorial site Tuesday. Sylver McLaren/TIMES

One year ago – on Feb. 5 – two teenagers were killed in a tragic accident on Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge. And on Tuesday, the one-year anniversary, a few dozen teens gathered at the crash site to release green balloons in memory of the friends they lost. The accident claimed the lives of Crystal Weaver – who would have turned 17 four days after the accident – as well as 17-year-old Dawson Spencer. “It has been a real tough year. [The balloon release] is supposed to be their closure,” said Cheryl McCarten, the mom of one of Dawson’s friends. In the past year a lot has changed, McCarten said. “Drinking and driving is a thing of the past. They all look out for one another if there is any drinking going on. Nobody gets behind the wheel of a car if they have been drinking,” she added. “Your kid might be the one making the right decisions. One thing that this group didn’t do very much

The Maple Ridge Library staff love books – that’s why they spend their days surrounded by them. And now it’s possible to find out what Maple Ridge librarians and other library staff are reading. A monthly staff picks list is published on the Fraser Valley Regional Library website listing what staff are reading and linking to a description of

the books and where to reserve them. “People are always intrigued – what do librarians really read,” said Jo-Ann Sleiman, community librarian at the Maple Ridge branch. The library, which has integrated a lot of technology into its offering – from eBooks to audio books – has changed its format for searches, going from a database catalogue to a system called BiblioCommons, which allows for social media lists. To find the Library Staff Picks, go to www.fvrl.bc.ca and from the drop down box at the top left, click on Lists and type in “Maple Ridge staff picks.”

Songs benefit heart and stroke

…continued from page A19 This year’s song choices are: I Just Called To Say I Love You – Stevie Wonder; Truly, Madly, Deeply – Savage Garden; Love me Do – The Beatles; and, Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars. In past, the “sing-agrams” have been just as satisfying for the vocalists as they have been for the people they’ve sung to. “It was a rewarding experience,” said Mary-Ellen Smith.

David Currie added, “My wife’s grandmother didn’t stop talking about it for a year.” The group will be making song deliveries on Sunday Feb 10 from noon to 6 p.m., and Thursday, Feb 14 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Proceeds go to the B.C. Heart & Stroke Foundation. For more information or to book a Valentine’s sing-a-gram, contact the Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts at 604-467-6613, or call Rayne Beveridge 604-716-3057, or email raynebeveridge@hotmail. com.

And make sure the room is tidy. It is much harder to set a mood in an area cluttered with everyday items. Now that the lights are dimmed and soft music fills the air, look into those candle-lit eyes and smile – not only because you created a romantic interlude successfully, but also for the fact no gratuity is required. Dear Chef Dez,

I want to make chocolatecovered strawberries for dessert for a Valentine’s dinner, but the last time I tried making them it was a disaster. Even though I took them out of the refrigerator ahead of time, the chocolate was still too hard, and it broke off the berries with the first bite and fell onto the plate. What am I doing wrong?

Chris D., Abbotsford Dear Chris, When melting your chocolate for dipping, melt some butter in with the chocolate. Room-temperature butter is much softer than room-temperature chocolate, and thus will create a more palatable bite, and will adhere to the berries. I normally add 50 per cent of the weight of chocolate being used with butter. For example, if you are melting four ounces of chocolate, then also melt in two ounces of butter.

Identity shifts in art show The gallery in The ACT has a new display starting this Saturday.

Shifting boundaries of the Canadian identity is the motif of a new show at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery. The show features work by artist duo Christian Nicolay and Ya-chu Kang and runs from Saturday, Feb. 9 to Saturday, March 9. The name of the exhib, Locate with Portable Walls, refers to the artists’ portrayal of those shifting boundaries that increasingly define identities, particularly in Canada where the properties of old and new, east and west, and male and female are no longer easily defined. When working in collaboration, the artists clearly share sensibilities and esthetic qualities but are in other ways opposites, adding a sly sense of humour that appears to be something of a hallmark in their collaborative adventures. Portable Walls opens Saturday with an opening reception at 2 p.m. and continues until March 9. The gallery is The ACT, is at 11944 Haney Pl.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, love and heartbreak will permeate The ACT as Emerald Pig Theatrical Society launches its 11th season with the one-woman musical Tell Me on a Sunday. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical opens tonight, and it is produced and directed by one of the society’s co-founders John Stuart – an optometrist by day, musical theatre buff by night – and it stars Langley resident Robyn Van Luven. Stuart discovered the musical already in the mid-1980s – “its music just gets to my heart,” he said – but it wasn’t until 2010 that he and Van Luven worked together and put it on in Vancouver. The main character, Emma, goes through an emotional roller coaster, having moved from England to New York looking for love and adventure. “It’s about love... discovering who you are and becoming who you are,” Stuart said of Tell Me on a Sunday. “All of us have gone through those emotions.” There are five versions of the musical, and when putting on the show, Stuart “pulled the best of all of those,” with some updates to bring it into the 1990s with cellphones and email. “It has the same emotional tone and feel of the Bernadette Peters’ version that was done in the 1980s,” Stuart said. While the costumes and look reflect the 1990s, Stuart was able to use current technology to enhance the music from just a

Cathy Ace’s mystery novel will be featured on Feb. 28 at One Book Whonnock.

Literature

Mystery rocks east Ridge A novel featured at a Whonnock event in late February is available at the library and Black Bond Books.

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Mystery writer Cathy Ace is getting excited about two literary events this spring: her book is featured at the second annual One Book Whonnock in late February, and in March she will launch her second novel in the Cait Morgan series. With a few weeks to go until the Feb. 28 One Book Whonnock event, Ace is hoping people who live, work, study, or worship in Whonnock, Ruskin, or Thornhill will still read her novel and sign up to take part in the literary event at Whonnock Lake Centre based on her novel The Corpse with the Silver Tongue. The event is endorsed by the three community associations: Whonnock, Ruskin, and Thornhill. The books are available at the Maple Ridge Library and for purchase from

Haney Place Mall’s Black Bond Books. The local Black Bond Books will give a discount of 10 per cent to those asking for the book for One Book Whonnock. The Corpse with the Golden Nose, the second book in Ace’s mystery series, which features the Welsh-Canadian heroine Cait Morgan, comes out in March. Ace draws on her own Welsh background in her heroine Cait Morgan, and while the author is ensconced in east Maple Ridge these days, she keeps up connections with her country of origin, the Principality of Wales. “Residents refer to it as a country,” Ace explained. Since she left Wales in the 1980s, there has been a resurgence of Welsh culture and language, and the Welsh diaspora – of which she’s a part – are coming back and celebrating everything Welsh. On Feb. 28 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Whonnock Lake Centre, One Book Whonnock will take place, including a discussion about the book with Ace and people who have read it. To RSVP, contact Jean Davidson at 604462-7341 or webmaster@whonnock.ca.

The friends and families of a local boys hockey team really want you to vote.

The 11- and 12-year-old boys were neck and neck with another team but every vote has counted. Stagg Chili will give the top five teams in the west and the top five teams in the east the chance to win up to $3,000.

Frustration felt playing against rivals

Last Friday’s game at Planet Ice offered up a preview of the opening round of the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs. And the Ridge Meadows Flames hope the result isn’t an indication of what’s to come once the postseason rolls around. The junior B Flames appear destined to meet the Aldergrove Kodiaks to kick off the playoffs, and the visiting Kodiaks put the bite on them Feb. 1 with a 6-2 win. “This was a frustrating game for us,” Flames coach Jamie Fiset said. “It wasn’t frustrating because we had no answer for them, it was frustrating because we know how to beat them. We just weren’t getting the bounces and we found ourselves in the penalty box at inopportune times.”

The Kodiaks went two-for-four with the man advantage while the Flames were held scoreless on three power-play opportunities. With four games remaining in their regular season, the secondplace Kodiaks (25-14-0-1) have an outside chance of catching the Harold Brittain Conference-leading Abbotsford Pilots (27-10-0-2). However, the Kodiaks would pretty much have to run the table the rest of the way, while the Pilots would have to lose three of their final five games of the campaign. The thirdplace Flames Jamie Fiset (14-19-2-5) are in purgatory. They won’t catch the Kodiaks and are way ahead of the fourth place Mission City Outlaws (7-301-2). So, if the season ended today, the Flames would meet the

Kodiaks and the Pilots would face the Outlaws to open the postseason, with the last-place Port Moody Panthers (6-32-0-2) on the outside looking in. Last Friday, the Kodiaks took a 1-0 lead after the first period, padding their advantage to 3-0 after 40 minutes, then moving ahead 4-0 at the 6:43 mark of the third frame. Fiset said the Flames had two glorious chances to score in the first and secView ond periods, website but couldn’t with capitalize. MacLean Hewitt scored the first two goals for the Kodiaks. Kenny Prato and Adam Callegari made it 4-0 for the visitors before Ridge Meadows’ Marco Ballarin ruined Aldergrove netminder Mark Menicucci’s shutout bid at the 7:56 mark of the third period. Forty-five seconds later,

MAPLE RIDGE

Aldergrove’s Samuel Ramsey scored to restore the Kodiaks’ fourgoal lead. Travis Oddy scored the Flames’ second goal of the night at the 12:14 mark. With eight seconds to go in the game, Hewitt completed his hat trick with a power-play goal. Counting their most recent win, the Kodiaks have dominated the season series with the Flames, winning all five meetings between the Fraser Valley rivals. But Fiset remains confident that the Flames will give the Kodiaks a good go of it with the likelihood of the teams meeting in the playoffs. “We know we’ll be fine once we get to the playoffs,” he said. “The last couple of years we always seem to meet them [the Kodiaks] in the playoffs and we feel this is our year. We feel this year we have just as good of a shot against them, even though we’ve struggled against them [this season]. They’re just another team to play.” The Flames and Kodiaks met last night at Aldergrove Arena. The game got underway after the TIMES went to press.

How to write a classified ad that works.

(Rolling Stones)

Writing an effective classified ad is easy when you use these time-tested principles.

So find it or sell it in our guaranteed classfied ads. No matter what you have to sell – a car, house, boat, furniture or collectible – guaranteed classified ads get the job done. Just list it and sell it for one low price.

• Use a keyword. Start your ad with the item for sale, service offered or the job title. • Be descriptive. Give customers a reason to respond. Advertisers have found that the more information you provide, the better the response. • Limit abbreviations. Use only standard abbreviations to avoid confusion and misinterpretations. • Include price. Always include price of the item for sale. • How to respond. Always include a phone number (with area code) and/or street and email address.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Social joys, optimism, entertainment, wish fulfillment and flirtations fill this week. But draw back from all this Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve. Love holds many future disappointments for couples that form/begin Sunday. Things you do to improve systems, meetings you attend, charitable, spiritual and governmental involvements, all somehow aid your standing with higher-ups Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma soar Tuesday night through Thursday. Start important projects, ask favours. (Start self-employment ventures before 1:30 p.m. PST Wednesday.) Chase money Friday onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on ambition, career, testing situations, reputation, prestige and status relations. Your hopes rise Sunday p.m. to Tuesday, but wait until Monday to form plans, start a relationship, flirt, or begin any project – this day features new beginnings and old successes. Retreat, lie low and rest Tuesday night through Thursday. Contemplate and plan. You might encounter a subtle but deep disagreement, or a significant “order” Wednesday. Your energy and charisma surge upward Friday/Saturday. If someone opposes you, a quiet talk might solve it. You have to admit, to gain. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of pondering and understanding, of feeling one with society, of travel and intellectual activities, and of gentle love. Not that these things end, but sooon another influence will enter, to bring a whole new set of priorities and goals. You get a hint of that new ambitious influence Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve – though this is just that, a hint – the ground is not solid enough yet to commit or start a new project, especially Sunday. Tuesday night through Thursday brings social joys, friends, wish fulfillment, flirtations. Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A mystery continues, but you’re close to solving it (and probably will, Monday). If you want to make a significant investment, this is your last chance for a few weeks – but do so AFTER Sunday – a day that holds little good for anybody. Don’t let a sexual attraction flower into an approach or relationship Sunday. Monday/Tuesday bring wisdom, a mellow mood, gentle love, perhaps travel, school or legal developments. Be ambitious Tuesday night through Thursday: you’ll impress higher-ups, but more importantly you can succeed with a financial effort. Joy, popularity come Friday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, co-operation and challenges, opposition and opportunities. Be diplomatic and eager to join others. Be cautious Sunday – the wrong relationships arise. Seize a financial opportunity, or a doorway to intimacy, early Monday morning. Tuesday night through Thursday brings understanding, love, far travel, educational programs, intellectual prowess, international contacts, possibly legal affairs. Chase opportunities in these areas – but sidestep opposition. Your ambitions, career get a boost Friday/Saturday – it might come from past family efforts. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s your last week of “overwork” for a while, Virgo. Soon, fresh, exciting horizons will ascend – new people, too. Sunday to Tuesday gives you a taste – but not a bite – of those future horizons – don’t act, though – wait. The best idea, pre-noon Monday, is to seek old openings, used items, or to connect with an old flame. Mysteries and valuable commitments arise Tuesday night through Thursday. Commitment can be to a lifestyle, a financial action, or to someone, with “intimacy attached.” Love, wisdom, education, far travel or legal matters come Friday/Saturday – all’s good!

February 10 - 16, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is your last strongly romantic week, Libra. A sweet affection will remain until month’s end, but the strength, the surge, will be over. If you’re single/seeking, act now – especially Tuesday night through Thursday, when your “mating prospects” are high. (You might confront the fear – and it’s correct – that mating will change your cosy home world. But is that such a bad thing? It certainly is a great excuse for stagnating.) Earlier, tackle routine chores – carefully Sunday, confidently Monday. Friday/Saturday bring depths, sex, financial commitment – or not. Embrace the new. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This is your last week of “domestic overload,” Scorpio. Soon, a period of pleasure and creativity will begin. Meanwhile, though Sunday to Tuesday do bring a wee streak of pleasure, romance and creativity, it is unsubstantial – enjoy the feelings, rather than trying to build anything on them. Tackle chores midweek – don’t be distracted by unreliable directions or information midday Wednesday. Exciting meetings, opportunities, fresh horizons confront you Friday/Saturday. One of these seems linked to your employment or a co-worker. Be mildly wary, but don’t reject a good person. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of waiting, talking and feeling restless, Sage. Soon, you’ll face significant trends in domestic and security, property and shelter areas. Sunday to Tuesday give hints of this upcoming phase, but they aren’t the sort of hints you should run with or build on. Just watch and think. DON’T start a new romance or any project Sunday. Speaking of romance, it comes barrelling in Tuesday night through Thursday – if not romance, then you will experience a streak of creativity, pleasure, beauty or “winning.” Tackle chores Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to deal with money, earnings, buying/selling, and possessions. Your $ luck remains high. If you ask for a pay raise Friday you might get a “no” – but that’s okay. You might meet someone interesting Sunday, but do not begin a friendship or more loving relationship. This link would “crush love.” If you want to get those errands done, start early Monday morn. Tuesday eve through Thursday bring domestic duties, security, home comforts. This is a splendid time to deal with leases, premises, business foundations – and family. Your romantic instincts awaken Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your effectiveness, charisma, energy and clout remain high. Your most charming self radiates, attracts admirers or lovers. Start significant projects, especially in money areas (early morning Monday) travel and communications (Wednesday eve to Thursday eve) and home or domestic zones (Friday/Saturday). One warning: make sure these projects can be completed, or can take one solid step forward, before the middle of next week. (A slow-down’s coming.) Your money affairs run swiftly – too swiftly, if you’re spending! Love, romance and children’s affairs go luckily forward, to June. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Although your energy and attractiveness rise Sunday to Tuesday, you still have a week of resting, thinking and planning before you move into solid forward gear. Soon, the world will be yours to play with – but not yet. Avoid any love-based commitment Sunday. A hidden flaw would wreck its future. Chase money Tuesday eve through Thursday. Buy items, especially high tech or tools, after 2 p.m. Wednesday, not before. A short trip, errand, visit, call or email leads to successful and happy “contact forming” Friday/Saturday. Property/ family issues, held back lately, will resolve soon. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808

30-Day/3000km Exchange Privledge. We do everything we can to ensure that the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle you purchase will perform like a new Mazda. But we realize that sometimes, for whatever reason, you may wish to change your vehicle after you’ve purchased it. That is fine. If you’re not 100% satisfied with your vehicle, you can exchange it within 30 days or 3,000 kilometres of purchase, whichever comes first. No hassles. No worry. No problem.

24-Hour Emergancy Roadside Assistance. Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are covered – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – with the complimentary 24-hour Emergancy Roadside Assistance Program. You’re automatically enrolled in the program for the duration of the Certified Limited Powertrain Warranty period.

7-year/140,000km Limited Powertrain Warranty. With our 7-year/140,000km Limited Powertrain Warranty, every Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is covered from the original new retail sales date with no deductible. That means you can drive worry free knowing that your Mazda dealer will repair or replace any covered part.

160-point Detailed Inspection. Each Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is required to undergo an uncompromising 160-point inspection inside and out.

2010 NISSAN XTERRA SE

90-day limited warranty. For even more peace of mind, we provide you with a limited 90-Day powertrain warranty. Visit us in-store for written details
