The most commonly used hunting technique of this long-legged beauty is wading slowly through shallow water and quickly spearing fish or frogs with its long sharp bill.

Transitions

Fair helps youth find employment

People with disabilities can get help finding work at an event in Maple Ridge. mrtimes.com

by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Stephen Mitchell said getting a job at a manufacturing company last year was a “gift from God.” After struggling to work in various areas since leaving high school, Mitchell, a Maple Ridge resident, was hired to a part-time job at Wesgar in Port Coquitlam, with help from the Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living. Mitchell, who is 23 and has some developmental disabilities, has fit in well at his new workplace working in the manufacturing area. His supervisor, Chris Escuer, is impressed at how quickly Mitchell learns, and how precise his work is – and his personality is easy to work with. “He’s great – I love his attitude... he’s a hard worker,” Escuer said. A group of service agencies will put on an annual Transition Resource Fair on Tuesday evening at Thomas Haney Secondary to inform people with disabilities of employment and education opportunities that are available. Mitchell has been working at Wesgar since last June and he describes himself as “not always a people person,” so jobs like customer service don’t work well for him. After doing some general labour work, for example, drywall and yardwork, he received help from Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living to get the job at Wesgar.

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Chris Escuer (left), the afternoon shift supervisor, works closely with Stephen Mitchell. At the precision sheet metal manufacturing company, which has been in business since 1965, Mitchell works in the paint prep area. He first started masking, then hanging, and has recently been learning how to paint.

For Mitchell, getting the job at Wesgar was a “gift from God,” and he said he prayed to find a job. The help from the association for community living helped “get my foot in the door,” Mitchell said. Some youth get funding

through Community Living BC, and will then be referred to Ridge Meadows Association for Community Living where they will receive help finding work. At his job, some days are physically demanding, others are more relaxed, Mitchell said, and it’s a good place to work with lots of opportunities. “It’s a good working-man’s job,” Mitchell said. Mitchell works three days a week after starting at two days a week in June. Margaret Fair, the human resources manager, said the company is a “huge supporter” of hiring people with disabilities, and it’s one way the company can give back to the community. Fair approached the management at Wesgar saying that people with disabilities constitute an untapped labour pool, and that they have a record of being reliable and committed workers. Fair interviewed Mitchell and after getting the go-ahead from management, hired him and set him up with the afternoon supervisor in the paint prep area. She felt Escuer would be a good fit for Mitchell and would work well with him. “With Stephen, we found a hard-working, reliable, solid-performing employee,” Fair added. The Transition Resource Fair takes place at Thomas Haney Secondary, 23000 116th Ave., in the rotunda on April 9. There will be representation from post-secondary schools, the ministry of social development, Community Living BC, employment agencies, recreational services, and other agencies. For more information or transportation to the event, contact Dennis Lacroix at 604-626-1156.

Theft from community mailboxes spikes

Pitt Meadows mail was stolen 19 times in the first three months of 2013. by Jeff Lee

Special to The TIMES

British Columbia has the highest rate of mail theft from community mailboxes in the country, Canada Post acknowledged Tuesday, after new figures showed a spike in thefts in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

In the first three months of 2013 there have been at least 44 break-ins of community mailboxes in the two communities. Last year, there were just seven break-ins for the same period. Of the 44, 19 occurred in Pitt Meadows. Canada Post spokesman John Caines said the corporation is aware of the thefts and is working with RCMP to find the culprits. But he insists the scale of thefts is small and Canada Post has been retrofitting boxes in high-crime areas with high-tensile locks and

anti-pry bars. The vast majority of the more than 20,000 “superboxes” in the province have never been broken into, he said. Cpl. Bert Paquet of Surrey RCMP said police haven’t been able to connect the thefts to organized crime, established gangs – or even a pattern of identity theft. “At this point it seems to be more the desperation factor rather than organized criminal activity,” Paquet said.

he owner of the Home Restaurant is happy that the harmonized sales tax disappeared as of Monday, April 1. Barton McLaren (cool last name, but no relation) told me that when the HST was implemented on July 1, 2010, he noticed a change in their guests ordering patterns. Now he hopes to see a another change, for the better. “We saw a reduction in the number of non-meal items, like milkshakes, pies, and side orders,” he said. McLaren has been hit three times now and hopes that this return to the GST and PST will be the turning point. “For us, we came out of the recession with a decrease in sales, and then that was followed by the introduction of the HST,

Our View

Proposal appeal mostly political It’s rare that a political party can appeal to both Vancouver Islanders and residents of the Lower Mainland with a single policy proposal, but the BC Conservatives have tried it. The party has announced that, in the unlikely event that voters carry it from no seats to a majority, ferry and bridge users will get a tax break. It’s smart as strategy, but it won’t go anywhere. Islanders always Scan this gripe about the cost of page with BC Ferry fares and the billions of dollars lavished on residents of the Lower Mainland. Lower Mainlanders gripe about tolls on new bridges and the way Islanders gripe about everything. Conservative leader John Cummins promised to introduce a Bridge Tolls and Ferry Fares Tax Credit, modelled on the federal Public Transit Tax Credit. The federal plan gives tax credits to people who use public transit. Cummins would allow ferry riders and bridge users to save their receipts and get a credit on the B.C. part of their income tax of as much as $408. Cummins said the credit – costing the B.C. treasury $45 million per year – would not only give taxpayers a break, but also increase the use of bridges and ferries, helping their bottom lines. Premier Christy Clark immediately said the plan is unaffordable. Adrian Dix and his New Democrats quickly labelled the proposal unwieldy, noting that collecting and processing fare and toll receipts would add another layer of bureaucracy. It would be nice to see both the government and the putative government-in-waiting make more substantive counter-proposals. But the Conservative plan is the wrong way to go. Taxpayers already subsidize too much. We don’t need to add to the bill. – Glacier Media

Last supper sad night for volunteers

Dear Editor, The night was sad for me and for all the volunteers who have served the community supper at the CEED Centre for the past

21 months. As we cleaned up and turned out the lights for the last time, it was very difficult to walk away from the perfection we have experienced at this location

Albion

Boat launch plans too late

Dear Editor, A city the size of Maple Ridge currently does not have a large department store, until Target opens. This results in a further exodus to neighbouring areas. G. Cole [Optional potential, Mar. 21 Letters, TIMES] would like the former Albion ferry terminal to be converted to a boat launch, stating in his letter, “A city of Maple Ridges size should not be outdone by the likes of Mission and Pitt Meadows.” That ship has already sailed. Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

What you’re telling us on Facebook

This community was hit by brazen crime spree recently, including a purse-snatching and a robbery where staff were tied up. Readers weighed in. “And what pitiful excuse will she [pursesnatching suspect] have?” – Jill Dykes “OMG, this is scary.”

– Debra Olafson

“Shocking! 4 p.m. right beside Timmy’s. Hope this is not a trend in our community. I left Port Moody 10 years ago after having a sawed-off shotgun pointed at my chest in an armed robbery.” – Stephanie Hill “This is why we need a youth system that really encourages them to not want to go back to jail… too many young or firsttime offenders get a slap on the wrist… sorry kiddies, you do the crime, you do the time.” – Bill Manners

in the heart of Port Haney. Along with the sadness was a deep sense of gratitude for the welcome and graciousness extended by the CEED Centre and especially by Christian Cowley for opening the drop-in centre when the need was apparent. This is how we build community, recognizing all citizens as having equal value and deserving of dignity and respect, giving them a place where they feel safe and loved. It was so good. May this not be the last page in the book, but just a chapter with many more to come. Elaine Cormier, Maple Ridge

B.C. politics

Friends and family get best treatment

Dear Editor, A $6-million budget shortfall for School District 42. Privatized parking at B.C. hospitals. Doubling of MSP premiums. Bridge tolls. BC Ferry increases. IPPs – the “I” in “Independent” is the new liberal catch phrase for privatized power producers. Then you turn on the evening news and see a smiling Christy Clarke of the BC Liberals at the Bollywood love fest receiving an award. Some small statuette. You would think that, for $18 million of taxpayers’ money, she could have at least bought herself a plaque to hang on her wall. By the way, her parking business friends thank her for the PP (“privatized parking” contract at B.C. hospitals). Christy Clark and the BC Liberals: friends and family first. J.

Yours Truly

End makes the biggest difference

Dear Editor, Most of the time I like Tim Tyler and his humour. But when it comes to believing or not believing [OMG! Holy smoke superceded, Mar. 21 Yours Truly, TIMES], I have a bit trouble with him. Of course, he is totally in his right of his opinion. Over the 2,000 years that we Christians are follow-

ers of Jesus Christ there is much that we should be ashamed of. But I came to this country 39 years ago. Can I blame Tim for everything that happened before I came here? All the things that we Canadians should be ashamed of you can fill in yourself. I have high hopes for the new pope, and I am not

Odd Thoughts

More story to saint

Dear Editor, I enjoyed your column about Canadians celebrating St. Patrick’s Day [Can’t skate through green beer, Mar. 19 Odd Letters to Thoughts, TIMES]. I was born in Ireland. the Editor I was a little bit surprised that you did not mention why Patrick became a saint. He brought Christianity to Ireland in the 400s A.D. It is a national holiday, a religious holiday, so the day was spent like a Sunday. St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the Trinity, so I find it disrespectful for people to decorate with four-leaf clovers on St. Patrick’s Day. I understand most people don’t know the difference between them, and the reason for the shamrock. Did you know that, when St. Patrick was first captured and brought to Ireland as a shepherd, he was in the hills of Tara? That’s the name of the plantation in Gone With the Wind. Tara has always been a name held in high respect because of St. Patrick. He is buried in Downpatrick, County Down. Louise Severinski, Pitt Meadows

Roman Catholic. The R.C. Church is very old, and will and can not change as quickly as we would like, but if I am right, this pope opened the door for condoms by saying that, for the health of people and to stop the spread of AIDS and HIV, they should be used. I don’t think he can or will say to use them to control the world’s population, but give the man a break. What can you gain from entering a church, Tim asks. Well, that is the different for you and me. We all have to go through the same misery here on Earth, some more than others. What you make of it is your responsibility, not what the nuns or your parents or your neighbour tells you. And I know that, when I am no longer here on earth, I will be with my Lord. That is the BIG difference, dear. Geeske de Boer, Pitt Meadows

Girl Greatness Starts Here

Maple Ridge’s Lindsay Klassen is currently living in Auchterarder, Scotland. Her twin sister Melissa came for a visit, and the pair visited Urquhart Castle at Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands near Inverness, where they had their picture taken holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES. In the meantime, regular TIMES Travellers Terry and Sherryl Hansen recently returned from a holiday in Oahu. The Maple Ridge couple did some sightseeing in and around Waikiki, including swimming with the turtles, surfing, hiking up Diamond Head, kayaking, and eating at some “fabulous” restaurants. And again, they made sure to have their picture taken with The TIMES.

Investing in Maple Ridge

Candidates sought for downtown’s new task force Sandy Blue is Manager for Strategic Economic Development for Maple Ridge. Contact her at sblue@mapleridge.ca

Developing Ideas by Sandy Blue

T

he Vibrant Downtown Task Force includes business organizations, municipal departments, and local agencies all working together with a common purpose – to identify and implement ideas to further enhance vibrancy in our town centre. It is expected that the task force will be in place for about six months. If you’d like more

details or to find out how to get involved, please contact me. In the meantime, a number of the town centre projects are nearing completion – the Community Gaming Centre is on track for completion later this year; Target is well underway with the first phases of their project; 223 North is almost complete; and sales at Edge on Edge have been brisk – in fact, they are looking forward to the first of their new owners moving in sometime in late April. These projects are just a few of many that are transforming downtown Maple Ridge.

News on the homefront

M

aple Ridge is an ideal for home-based businesses (HBB) and we have a

long history of successful home businesses locating here. In fact, in the 1990s the Royal Bank acknowledged the community for this very fact, and since then home businesses have been contributing to the success of the local economy. As our HBB opportunity analysis project – aimed at helping us better understand the needs of home-based business – draws to a close, we want to thank the chamber of commerce, Downtown Maple Ridge BIA, local home-based business organizations, and individuals whose participation has been vital. Our consultant provided an overview of his findings at the March economic advisory commission meeting and will be pre-

senting to council April 22. If you’re one of our 1,500 HBB owner who have not yet completed our confidential online HBB Insights questionnaire, there is still time. Simply go to www. investmapleridge.ca to access the survey, and let us know how we can help HBB thrive. Survey closes April 15.

Ridge put in forefront

A

pril 4 (today), the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) invited Maple Ridge to provide an update to their members. This is an exceptional opportunity to profile the competitive advantages of Maple Ridge to investors from across Canada who will be in attendance at the

Red Robinson Show Theatre. No stranger to Maple Ridge, REIN named us 2010–2015 #5 Top Canadian Investment City; and in 2011 some 300-plus REIN members visited Maple Ridge to see the opportunities first-hand. And once again this year, the District of Maple Ridge will be participating in the Ridge Meadows Home Show the first weekend in May. Always a popular event, it draws tens of thousands of visitors. We look forward to seeing you there. And our brochure Connecting Business: Resources to Succeed is available online at www.investmapleridge.ca or you can pick up a copy at our office.

The 2012 Barry’s Roubaix champion Steph Roorda took a turn on gravel and grass at last year’s race.

Paul Craig photo

MAPLE RIDGE

A race on Saturday will act as a qualifier for the Canada Summer Games. Two premier road cycling events will speed through Pitt Meadows this weekend with the launch of the new Pitt Polder Time Trial on April 6 and the fourth annual Barry’s Roubaix Road Race on April 7. “The popularity of our Roubaix race over the years has allowed us to offer a new and challenging event on the Saturday,” said race organizer and owner of Local Ride Bike Store, Barry Lyster. “There is new and growing excitement around road racing right now and we expect to have record numbers out this weekend.” The Pitt Polder Time Trial will see riders race against the clock in a 12.5-kilometre

effort finishing at Pitt Lake. The route is mostly flat, but it promises to be tough with rough pavement and likely strong winds. The event is a new one on the calendar and will also act as a qualifier for the Canada Summer Games. Sunday’s race will entice some of the province’s top cyclists to hit the rural roads and scenic Pitt Meadows dike network for Barry’s Roubaix, a road race that pays homage to the historic European Spring Classic Paris-Roubaix held on the same day. Barry’s Roubaix simulates the famed French event’s bone-rattling sectors of cobblestones by including a large section of gravel dike in the course. For more information about these events and how to register, visit www.localride. ca/wp/2013/01/22/barrysroubaix-2013-info.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

How to write a classified ad that works. Writing an effective classified ad is easy when you use these time-tested principles. • 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.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Be thoughtful, understanding Sunday. Someone might propose linking up, for love, or a cultural or educational purpose. The general accent continues on your career, ambitions, prestige relations and reputation, especially Monday afternoon to Wednesday. Charge ahead, but be diplomatic Tuesday morning. As many as three “new beginnings” could be born in your career zone this week. You’ll celebrate Wednesday night to Friday – get out, enjoy social delights! Romance, marital prospects, and creative/speculative opportunities mildly slow now to September – be patient. Rest, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your intellectual side sizzles. Some of the more significant ideas of this decade can come to you now. It’s a great interval (to April 18) to sign up for higher learning, to contact publishers, lawyers and scholars, travellers and foreign-born people, to travel afar or fall in love. Mysteries, financial schemes and sexual urges fill Sunday. Monday to Wednesday highlights all those intellectual, legal, travel themes: several new projects could start. Be ambitious, approach bosses, make your bid for promotion, Thursday (AFTER 3 p.m. PDT) and Friday. Joy, popularity, romance Saturday! Virgo Aug.23-Sept.22: Sunday brings relationships, opportunities and exciting meetings. But the general accent this month is on mysteries, intimate bonding, financial dealings, health diagnoses and lifestyle changes. You’re dealing with your subconscious, with the “engine room” of your life – especially Monday to Wednesday, when as many as three new ventures might begin, in finance, sex, or any of those areas I listed. This period steers relationships and opportunities to crucial stages of commitment and consequence. Good luck trickles through all this. Wisdom, gentle love arise Thursday/Friday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue high. There are few problems this week: a career demand (or disagreement with authority) Tuesday morning, and perhaps a money refusal Thursday (which is your cue to build a different road, or a detour, to $). You remain restless, travel prone; you’ll talk too much in legal matters, perhaps. You continue to draw the attention of a receptive, yet slyly assertive “suitor.” Lie low, rest Sunday. Your energy and presence soar Monday p.m. to Wednesday – start important projects. Chase money late week. Travel, talk, siblings Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan, especially Monday noon to Wednesday. Avoid competitive situations, deal with government agencies or head office, be charitable (or seek charity – you’ll get it). This is a good time for meditation and spiritual pursuits. Your hopes and happiness rise nicely Sunday – a wee romantic wish comes true. Your energy and charisma rise mildly Thursday/Friday. Chase money Saturday. Early next week grace and charisma will begin to return, but it will be a “silent charm.” A legal or school affair will “backtrack” now to September – that’s okay. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wishes can come true, Gemini! (Especially wishes about friendship, light romance, entertainment and popularity – and especially Monday noon to Wednesday.) Be ambitious Sunday – you can take a solid step forward. Get out, call, visit others Monday to Wednesday. This night to Saturday dawn brings a mild breather – slow down, rest, retreat from the fray, protect your health and contemplate your future, make plans. Your energy and charisma soar Saturday – start important projects (Sunday, April 14 also – even better). See and be seen, ask favours, compete for a prize. Life’s good!

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle chores Sunday. Monday to Wednesday (and the whole week) bring relationships, opportunities and opposition. Be diplomatic, eager to join. More than one rewarding link might be forged now, whether in emotional or practical spheres. Careful Wednesday night to Friday – circumstances, people, feelings nudge you to commit to someone, whether in intimacy, sexually, or financially or in a promise to perform. Trouble is, this commitment is likely to be a deadend, or worse, a sucking trap. Saturday brings mellow wisdom, affection and far-away places. A love proposal might loom. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main emphasis lies on chores, employment, health and dependents. Boring but necessary. Romance relieves the drudgery Sunday – this could even lead to intimacy, quickly. But those chores return in a bunch Monday p.m. to Wednesday – and new tasks arise, even new employment. (So if you’re seeking, seek now.) Relationships, exciting meetings, opportunities and new horizons appear late Wednesday to Friday – trouble is, they’re all the wrong ones. Wait, be confident in your own path. If someone attacks you (now to February 2014) they’re really seeking to “capture” you. Walk away. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The main emphasis lies on romance, creativity, pleasure, beauty, selfexpression, speculation and charming kids, especially Monday to Wednesday, when a new project (or romance) might begin. This is a significant time, Sage. Perhaps someone has already caught your eye, has approached you, perhaps you’re dating. Whatever, you sense that this is rather momentous – and you’re right. But what to do? Stick, or run away? Do whatever your heart urges – and whatever opens a door to a new world. Until June, you’re blessed in relationships and opportunities. Act soon. Chores, late week.

April 7 - 13, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on home, family, nature, soul, stomach, nutrition, security, retirement – and on ending stale relationships/ projects, and nurturing fresh ones. Make these choices Monday p.m. to Wednesday. (If you need data, gather it Sunday, when everyone’s willing to talk.) April is a very significant time for establishing a solid base (from which to launch ambitious projects) and for pruning, seeding, nurturing – people, projects and plants. Romance lures Thursday/Friday, but be cautious and thoughtful: a subtle trap might lurk here: ditto creative and speculative ventures. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Life’s full of chatter, short trips, emails, reports and paperwork. Be friendly, listen and talk, but realize nothing’s ultra-serious. Still, you can make a telling comment, write a great letter/story, or purchase a great telephone, computer or system from 11 a.m. (PDT) Tuesday to 9 a.m. Wednesday. Chase money Sunday: a bit of a gamble could work. Casual friends, trips and errands Monday p.m. to Wednesday. Late week brings domestic themes – take care, be alert for subtle temptations/traps, in security, retirement, home, real estate and gardening. Romantic urges Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase money, Pisces – especially Monday p.m. to Wednesday, when several new income or spending projects could begin. You might put your income on a new, more solid level. Best sources: luxury items, government or institutions, or (next week) negotiation or partnerships. (Until late June, your could experience the end of one career, the start of another – good!) Your energy and charisma ring a high note Sunday – you could attract someone loving and true. Thursday/Friday bring errands, paperwork and casual friends – don’t believe promises or “expectations.” Home, Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
