Haney Facebook group explodes The history of Maple Ridge is being pieced together through a “We call it Haney” page. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The United Nations Club at MRSS in 1965-66 was captured in this photo, but its contents remained a mystery until, through Facebook, the Maple Ridge Museum director received information about the individuals and their purpose for gathering.

“Remember when we were in Haney?” This is how every conversation with old friends of Kathy Katona McIntosh always ended up. Life was simple and “filled with candy” growing up in Haney where everything happened between Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road, and 222nd and 227th Streets, she said. “That was the core – everything happened there,” McIntosh said. “Everyone knew you.” McIntosh’s family was the Stewarts and they moved to Haney in 1944. She was the second youngest of eight children and lived in different houses around Haney. In the end, her reminiscing led to establishing the Facebook group, “We call it Haney.” After starting a Facebook group, McIntosh wanted to keep a “historic chat” going on the Internet forum.

Paintings recovered

Missing art returned to rightful owner An artist is donating some of her reclaimed watercolours to Maple Ridge’s Unique Boutique. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

In July 2000, Maple Ridge artist Kristin Krimmel consigned 64 paintings to the Anchor Rock Gallery in Halfmoon Bay on the Sunshine Coast. A few years later, when the gallery shut down, the owner didn’t tell her about the closure. Krimmel tried to get her art back, but the owner claimed he returned them to her via Canada Post. She never received them. Then, out of the blue, on June 27, Krimmel opened her email and got a surprise: a volunteer at a thrift store wanted to know if a bunch of paintings and drawings in a box – with her name on all of them – had any value. A sorter at Saint Mary’s Hospital Thrift

Shop in Sechelt was about to throw them all out when she noticed that all the pieces had the same signature, so she looked up Krimmel’s name on the Internet and contacted her. The box of 38 dirty, dusty, water-damaged pieces had been donated anonymously. “The Internet is a miracle,” Krimmel said. “I insisted that they come back. But, the manager of the thrift store said that they were irrevocably theirs, so I offered a donation to their charity” she said. After some negotiations, the thrift store and Krimmel came to an agreement and the art was sent via bus on July 6. “I was very pleased with the care the thrift store gave to them. They had all been dusted and were wrapped very carefully in new, white tissue paper,” Krimmel said. “These paintings are like old friends. I’m really happy to see them.” Krimmel intends to document the recovered pieces and then send one or two of the paintings back to Sechelt as a

thank you to the volunteer who took the time to contact her. A few others will be donated to the Unique Boutique on Lougheed Highway, which supports the Cythera Transition House Society. Krimmel is chair of the District of Maple Ridge’s public art steering committee, a member of the Fort Gallery in Fort Langley, and has recently been juried into the Fraser Valley Regional Biennale. She trained at UBC as a specialist in the teaching of fine arts, and later received a diplome regional in painting from the Ecole Regional des Beaux Arts de Reims in France. After seven years in France, she returned to B.C. to become an instructor with Emily Carr College of Art and Design, teaching drawing, colour and design. She has received an honourary medal from the City of Vichy, France for her work. Her art has been seen in exhibitions in France, Canada, and the U.S., and in several Steven Cannell television productions.

Port Haney was filled with the sound of blues and roots music on Monday evening as the 15th annual Music on the Wharf series kicked off. Marty Bernard and the Bloo Zebras played to a crowd of about 150 at the first concert of the year. The series is organized by the Maple Ridge Historical Society and there will be three more Monday evening concerts on the wharf this year. There is no seating provided at the concerts so music lovers should bring along a lawn chair. In case of rain, the concert will be cancelled. A decision will be made by 4:30 p.m. the day of the concert. Signs will be posted at the venue, and one can contact the museum at 604-463-5311 the day of the concert for details.

Four-legged officer honoured

Police dog killed in line of duty

An RCMP canine was struck twice on Lougheed, while chasing a suspect. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

RCMP are mourning the loss of Bear, a police service dog, who gave his life trying to apprehend a suspect in Maple Ridge. At about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday night, members of Ridge Meadows Mounties – along with the RCMP Lower Mainland’s police service dog Barry (known as Bear) and his handler – attended a possible home invasion in the 22000 block of Lougheed Highway. Bear had only been on the job for 10 months, where he was assigned to the North Fraser canine unit, which includes North Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Ridge Meadows detachments. As well, Bear would respond to calls on the south side of the Fraser River if there was a need. On Tuesday Bear and his handler were dispatched when three men apparently forced their way inside the downtown Haney home. But, when the suspects saw police, they ran.

Bear, a member of the RCMP dog service unit, was just a puppy when he began training to become a member of force two years ago. Police tried to apprehend the suspects, who fled on foot. Bear and his handler tracked one suspect out onto the highway, where under the dark of night the dog was struck

and killed by two cars that were travelling westbound, explained RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. Bear was not wearing any reflective gear and was not on a leash when he was hit, first by an SUV and then by a minivan. “We are all saddened with the tragic loss of one of our police service dogs. All of our dogs provide us with a key component in apprehending criminals,” Dunlop added. “They also assist us in recovering lost persons, finding key evidence, and calming violent people down. They all add so much to the public’s safety.” The handler was reportedly quite distraught, and Dunlop said he’s getting the support. Bear was born in March 2009 and has been on active duty since completing his training in 2010. “We have lost one of our own, and we owe this dedicated police dog our deepest respect and gratitude,” Dunlop said. “He gave it his all, and sacrificed his life trying to do his job for what is right.” • This story first appear online and much more information is available online at www.mrtimes.com

A teenager used quick thinking to douse a fire that started in the kitchen of his family’s home in the 12400 block of 231B Street on Monday night. The fire started when somebody placed some objects on top of the range and accidently turned an element. “A 14-year-old put the fire out with a garden hose,” said Maple Ridge fire chief Dane Spence. “That’s pretty good presence of mind on his part,” Spence added. The fire damaged the kitchen cupboards above the range. Three people in the home were taken to Ridge Meadows Hospital and treated for smoke inhalation, none of whom were the quick-acting teen.

Police were called at about 11:15 a.m. on July 11, to the park at 117th Avenue and Darby Street in Maple Ridge. Some playground equipment owned by the District was badly damaged when it was set on fire. According to Maple Ridge fire chief Dane Spence, a neighbour doused the fire with buckets of water, before fire-

fighters arrived. Police spoke with several neighbours. There were around four or five teenagers in the park a short time before the blaze was spotted. No one got a good look at any of the teens, and police have few leads to go on. Police are asking citizens to be watchful in and around parks, school grounds, and recreational facilities. Anyone who observed the damage being done, or who know of those responsible is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.

Internet users reminisce about the Haney of days gone by … continued from page A1

The group had about 35 members for less than a year reconnecting and reminiscing. But, about six weeks ago, it just exploded. It went from about 35 members to 670 within weeks. The group is largely made up of people who lived in Maple Ridge at some point and it spans five generations. Not only are old friends reconnecting, the group is turning into a treasure trove of information for local historians. Val Patenaude, the director of the Maple Ridge Museum was trying to find out why there was a group of students standing in front of Maple Ridge Secondary in the 1960s in a photo submitted to the museum. She knew it was the 1960s because of the fashion style, and she recognized the building. But Patenaude wanted to know “who are these people and why are they standing out in front of the school?” After posting the photo on the “We call it Haney” Facebook page, within half an hour she had her answer. It was the high school’s United Nations Club from 1965-66 and she had a list of the people in the picture. “For me, it’s the best focus group I’ve ever had,” Patenaude said. There are people in the group who graduated in the 1940s and there are current high school students – and people representing

every generation in between, she said. Patenaude described the sudden expansion of the group as a groundswell – it’s not something that can be planned or made to happen. It just went “viral,” she said. “I’m just absolutely thrilled to bits because it’s about history,” she added. “It’s interesting to see five different generations’ perspective on places like Davidson’s Pool and

hot rocks,” Patenaude said. The group uses “Haney” to refer to Maple Ridge, but Patenaude said that’s because it was the centre of town where people came by car, bike, or horse to take care of business or go to school. “Haney was downtown, Haney was town,” Patenaude said. “That’s where all the commercial development was.” The most common theme for everyone across the generations

is school memories, and what everyone wants to know is where they went to school and with whom, where they got into mischief, and where they ate, Patenaude said. The group allows people to get that kind of information as they remember their childhood. “It’s just a whole bunch of reminiscing of people and places and where have they gotten to now,” Patenaude said. For women, it’s been especially

helpful because many don’t use their former names, Patenaude said, so they can ask around on Facebook. The museum receives a lot of photos of what seems to be random people just standing around. If a group of young ladies are standing around with tiaras and sashes, one can guess why they are in the picture. But random pictures of groups of people are more of a mystery. One such photo piqued Patenaude’s interest, and when she posted it on the Facebook group, she got a reply that it was a group of students from Catholic schools in the region who were all receiving a scholarship. Communication on the Facebook group is two-way, and both the Haney natives and the museum are benefitting. “They are now providing me with pictures,” Patenaude said. “It’s going both ways as far as information. It’s been a fascinating experience to meet all these people.” Many are coming to the museum to meet her in person as well. Members of the group are all across Canada and overseas as well, but all lived in Maple Ridge for a substantial amount of time and went to school here. “Val’s doing an amazing job to keep people focused on the historical aspect,” McIntosh said. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Patenaude said of the Facebook group. “It’s not something anyone could deliberately create.”

Silver Valley

Park approved, after debate

Councillors voiced concerns about how park site issue was dealt with. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge council approved the establishment of a new park in Silver Valley, but only after some members objected to the process leading up to the decision. A park site was established in the Official Community Plan on 132nd Avenue between 236th and 237A Streets in Silver Valley, but the site was owned privately. The District of Maple Ridge negotiated for several years to buy the northern portion of a lot from its owner, but walked away when they didn’t get the price they wanted. The owner was asking for $850,000 for the parcel, which is just under an acre in size. In 2009, the District offered to pay $443,000 for the park portion of the lot (0.583 acres), the appraised value in 2009. The previous year, the owners had offered to sell the park portion for

$435,000, but District didn’t accept it as prices were on a downturn at that point. Since they couldn’t get the land for the price they wanted, the District asked council to change the Official Community Plan on the adjacent lot to designate it a park. This was approved by council on Tuesday evening but Councillors Michael Morden and Al Hogarth voted against it. Morden said the process of getting the park site was “messy and confusing.” Coun. Linda King pointed out that many of the expectations of Silver Valley residents haven’t been met, for example, there is no elementary or high schools. She added that “to delay this park is unconscionable,” and that approving the District-owned site for a park was “the most fiscally responsible” thing to do. District staff said the park will be built to standards set by the municipality, which won’t necessarily include the entire lot. Only 1.457 acres out of the almost three-acre parcel can be developed as a park as part of the lot is a conservation area. Guidelines in the Silver Valley plan suggest parks should be between a half and one and a half acres in size.

Yvonne Desabrais (right) and her daughter Natasha Desabrais-Tremblay are long-time Haney residents and want to see the area improved and made safer.

Port Haney

Locals want positive solutions A second District grant is meant to continue improving the historic centre of Maple Ridge. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The trains and the rumbling of traffic from the bypass is like white noise to Haney resident Yvonne Desabrais. But when she hears the screech of tires, an elongated horn blast, and a crunching sound, she reaches for her phone ready to call 911. A neighbourhood group trying to make the area safer and more connected recently formed a subcommittee to deal with parking, speeding, and traffic issues – it’s referred to as the PST subcommittee. The traffic headache is just one issue the Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative is trying to tackle. The group recently received a grant of $15,000 from the District of Maple Ridge to continue its efforts to make Haney a safe, connected place to live and work in. The group received a grant for $25,000 from the District last year to jump start their initiatives, and the money helps pay for a staff person working on their various initiatives. Desabrais is the co-chair of the group with Chris Iversen as the other co-chair. The neighbourhood has a lot of vulnerable people living in it, but Desabrais said she’s tired of the discrimination against these people. “We all have a place-setting at the table

of life,” she said. “It’s not about blaming,” she added. “It’s about moving forward together.” Desabrais moved to the neighbourhood 11 years ago with her son and daughter. Desabrais’ car has been broken into and items stolen from her yard. She also has to constantly deal with trespassers – even putting up with people rattling her door knob during the day. “It’s not an easy place to live in and you are vulnerable,” she said of the surroundings. But Desabrais believes that a positive attitude is contagious, and she wants to apply that to her neighbourhood. “It’s about positive [solutions] for me – we’re drowning in negative,” she said. The neighbourhood group formed almost a year ago, and Desabrais is happy with the progress, for example, improved lighting in the neighbourhood, a cleanup party in April, and the upcoming Port Haney Day. Also the support from the District has been “huge,” she said. Desabrais said she wants to see positive solutions to problems that plague the neighbourhood, namely, crime, drugs, and prostitution. The group is partnering with the District of Maple Ridge, RCMP, the business improvement association, and TransLink to improve Haney. On Sept. 18, the Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative is hosting Port Haney Day, an event they hope will take place every year. It will take place in the historic Haney House at 11612 224th St. from 1 to 4 p.m.

Our View

Little class in teachers’ opening bid The endless days of summer don’t seem so endless when there’s the looming spectre of possible job action in schools come fall. Members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation recently voted 90 per cent in favour of job action, should an agreement not be reached between their union and the employer, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. That’s a strong mandate, and given how contract negotiations have gone in the past, we can’t say we’re confident any agreement will be reached by then. Over the years, we’ve backed the teachers’ efforts many times: their calls for renewed education funding, for reinstating contract language around class size and composition, their concerns over closed schools, and lack of support for special needs students. But we can’t right now. To be clear, proposals made public recently – including such things as 10days paid bereavement leave when a friend or family member dies – won’t necessarily be included in the final contract for negotiation. And we understand that there’s a strategy for bargaining in which both sides tend to come out with more extreme positions than they really expect to end up in. Opening bids are supposed to seesaw down to a reasonable medium. But let’s be honest: the teachers’ union’s opening bid is bad optics. The public, even those who staunchly back calls for wage increases and improved classroom sizes and composition, will have a hard time swallowing some of these proposals. This is no critique of teachers, whose jobs are critical to the very fundamentals of an open and educated society. But we have to give a thumbs down to the union for undermining their own efforts by coming out with proposals that will do little but alienate the public.

Becker candidacy anticipated

Dear Editor, Ah! I figured something was up about two months ago when the full page ads for Becker’s law firm appeared. They were followed by disparaging remarks about his fellow councillors, and next will be his past practice of the free lunch for seniors. Love the “The Fifth Tuesday” of every month dedicated to making councillors “understand.” He intimates current councillors are like “huskies all running in different directions.” Not to worry, folks, he will bring independent thought under control by agreeing to disagree – collegially, of course, but somehow bringing everyone together to all vote the same way. That may work with a large number of new councillors, but give them some experience under their belt, and they won’t be sheep. The reason voters choose their candidates isn’t because they want them all to

be sheep led by the head shepherd. Hmm… sounds like Harper politics. A good section of society and views works best at the council table. I can’t remember when politicians last kissed babies, but that shows what respect the position holds in Mr. Becker’s mind. This is an elected position that requires some respect, not just being blown off as a simple task that can be done “blind-folded”… oops… “two days a week.” On top of that, he can “juggle” being mayor along with his 60 employees. WOW! It will probably be a touch more difficult being the mayor, keeping up with the agenda and playing on the Blackberry. I expect the mayor’s remuneration of $63,220 to drop in accordance with the twodays-a-week schedule, and the whopping payments from attending transit and GVRD meetings to be donated to charity.

HST

Wage earners given tax burden

Dear Editor, The real facts are that I am living on a small, fixed pension that puts me in the very bottom of the middleincome group, and the HST has taken 1/20th more of my income than I paid with GST and PST, or $2,000 extra that I would not have paid under the GST/PST. Forget all the spin and BS from the government hacks and the so-called experts. This tax hits different groups harder than others. Seniors or sick or handicapped people or anyone who for one reason or another cannot do all the labour jobs associated with owning and running a home will get hammered with a 140 per cent tax increase on labour. Families with children in school or sports have been hit hard. No matter how you spin it, the $2-billion tax shift shall be paid by wage earners. Wayne Clark, Maple Ridge

No neutrality in HST

Dear Editor, When the government introduced the HST, it assured British Columbians that the HST would be “revenue neutral.” Revenue neutrality mean that the amount of taxes you pay under the HST will

not be more than what you paid under the GST/PST, or it can mean that the taxes the government would take in from the HST-expanded tax base would be entirely offset by tax credits to business and low-income credits. Although the HST would be costing British Columbians well over a billion dollars in increased taxes, the claim would be that it was not going to bring in any new revenue to government. After a year of HST, it is clear that it is costing British Columbians more in taxes than the PST did. If the HST was revenue neutral, there would be no additional money to government, and no discussion of “where is the money going to come from” vis-a-vis the choice we have to make between the PST/GST or the HST. The real question, though, concerns tax policy and how we pay for the services we require. For more than 11 years, the B.C. government has reduced taxes to corporations significantly, while increasing user fees to citizens, in the form of higher MSP premiums, hydro rates, ferry fares, bridge tolls, etc. The HST is a flat out tax transfer from some businesses (especially large cor-

Taxes kill benefits

Federal appointment

Campbell’s appointment outrageous Dear Editor, As an expatriate Brit who has lived in British Columbia since emigrating from Britain in 1974, I am outraged at the appointment of Gordon Campbell as Canada’s High Commissioner to Britain. Gordon Campbell outright lied to the people of B.C. on several occasions, not to mention robbing certain members of the health-care profession by legislatively tearing up contracts. To appoint such a person to a position, which is crucially important to Canada’s international reputation, constitutes an act of treason against Canadians. If Stephen Harper is rewarding Mr.

porations) to consumers. The majority of my constituents know that the HST is costing them more. Michael Sather, MLA, Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows

Dear Editor, The BC Liberal government wants us to believe that the harmonized sales tax (HST) is good for us: creating jobs and reducing consumer prices. However, small business confidence has fallen, with some of the reasons being fuel and energy costs, as well as tax and regulation. So how can we expect lower prices, and that businesses will pass on their savings to us when they face so many costs due to government taxes and fees? Now Metro Vancouver mayors are proposing a two-cent-per-litre increase in gas prices to fund the building of the Evergreen Line. Businesses, not just drivers, will be impacted by this tax grab. It is very expensive to live in B.C., particularly Metro Vancouver. My Alberta relative enjoys pointing out that “B.C.” means BRING CASH! Linda Harrington, Maple Ridge [Note: Fuller versions of these letters are online at www.mrtimes.com.]

Campbell for ramming the HST down our throats, I respectfully suggest that the prime minister be immediately removed from office and charged with treason against Canadians, especially those who elected him to a majority government. What right does any civilized country have to dump its political thieves, robbers, and liars on their unsuspecting international neighbours or their expatriates’ countrymen?

zone alert issued Police hunt for Construction Road crews shouldn’t take their lives in their hands when they man from bridge punch in, WorkSafeBC says.

A suspicious guy was seen walking along the ledge on the Pitt River Bridge Monday night.

At about 6:40 p.m. Monday night, Mounties were alerted to a man walking the Pitt River Bridge. Ridge Meadows and Coquitlam RCMP both received a call about a man walking on the ledge of the bridge. Police showed up quickly, but were unable to find the man on the bridge or in the surrounding area. The bridge was even closed down for a short period, but the search failed to lead to anything conclusive, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Insp. David Fleugel. Members of both Ridge Meadows and Coquitlam Search and Rescue were also called out, and a larger search area – which included two boats – was made. The hunt turned up no sign of the man. The tipster described the man as Asian, wearing a black sleeveless T-shirt and black baseball David Fleugel hat. He appeared to be carrying Ridge Meadows RCMP inspector a bag. Fleugel reported the man was walking along the outside of the pedestrian walkway railing, on the westbound, or north side of the bridge. “It’s very concerning that someone may have done something to harm themself,” Fleugel said. “We have contacted all RCMP detachments and police agencies in the Lower Mainland for any missing persons reports, and we’ll check any of those to see if they meet the descriptors of this possible victim.” Anyone with information about this sighting is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.

WorkSafeBC is trying to guard the workers behind the orange plastic cones as summer road construction season hits full swing. The Work Zone Safety Alliance has recently launched a Cone Zone campaign, to encourage drivers to slow down, pay attention, and be respectful when near roadside workers. In the last 10 years, WorkSafeBC reports that 386 workers, typically working in cone zones, were struck by motor vehicles. Of those, 46 per cent were classified as serious injuries and 12 resulted in the death of the worker. One of those workers was Terry Mitchell of Pitt Meadows, a flagger who was killed in February 2008, when an elderly, unlicenced driver struck him on River Road in Fort Langley. Melle Pool, now 88, was given a suspended sentence, probation, and a driving ban this year for the fatal collision. Mitchell had been working for Valley Traffic Systems, directing traffic around a Langley Township road repair site. The 52-year-old left behind a large extended family. To spare workers like Mitchell and their families from pain and suffering, WorkSafeBC is asking for a slowdown. “Slow down. Pay attention in the

It’s as simple as that,” said Donna Wilson, WorkSafeBC vice-president of industry services and sustainability. “These workers are vulnerable and have the right to be safe.” “Roadside workers are extremely vulnerable. That’s why it’s so important that you take extra care in construction zones,” said Minister

of Transportation and Infrastructure Blair Lekstrom. “Whenever you approach someone working on or near our roads and highways, please slow down. We want all our workers to stay safe, so they can go home to their families at the end of the day.” A large segment of drivers say that they adjust driving behaviours when travelling through or past a cone zone, yet there have already been several incidents this season where traffic control workers have been seriously injured. But it’s not just traffic control workers or road construction crews that are at risk. Other workers, including municipal workers, landscapers, tow-truck drivers, road-maintenance workers, telecommunications and utility workers, and emergency and enforcement personnel, work in potentially high-risk environments in close proximity to traffic. “We know that speed is a factor in many motor vehicle incidents,” said David Dunne, BCAA Road Safety Foundation’s director of road safety programs. “Drivers that don’t reduce their speed when there are workers at the roadside are putting those workers at serious risk,” Dunne said. To avoid the frustration that often comes with the hold-ups in work zones, Dunne suggests drivers plan their routes to avoid known cone zones and allow extra travel time, drive at the posted speed limits, and leave plenty of space between their vehicle and the one in front of them.

Married Pitt woman crowned Carla Wayes has become the first ever Mrs. B.C.

U-GOT A DUCK? get a duck! ducks for $10 eaCH where to get a duck?

by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Carla Wayes won the first ever Mrs. B.C. title. The 37-year-old Pitt Meadows woman was crowned on July 3 at the annual charity event, which raised $21,205 for Cops For Cancer. Wayes said she is “unique because I am a rainbow, a citizen of the world.” “My ethnic background is mixed about five different ways. I’m Ukrainian, Polish, Cree, and British-East Indian, but I’m neither one nor the other – but a bit of all,” she said. Wayes, who is a recent graduate of a film and television writing course, entered the Miss B.C. competition wanting to give voice to her passion for green living. “I instill green living practices like recycling, reusing, reducing waste, growing my own food, buying locally, walking, and using public transportation. I would like the public to know how simple this can be,” she said. With her title, Wayes looks forward to being able to share her experiences with others. Each contestant received professional training in areas such as modelling, stage presence, manners and etiquette, selfesteem, interview skills, public speaking, self-defence, and assertiveness. Previously, the pageant faced controversy when it allowed a mother of two to enter the competition. Most pageants

Exhibit delves into environmental opinions From beauty all around us to the harm of consumption, a local gallery presents two perspectives. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

Artist promoter, Suzette Fram noted that Jack Prasad’s work, “reflects the beauty found in the world all around us,” while Maurice Bouchard’s work is, “trying to show the effects of consumption.” The work of both artists will be on display at the gallery for the month of July in a showing titled th Examining the Landscape. “I had heard that once whales could be seen in the [Burrard] inlet, all I have seen is big boats and floating gas stations... scum and oil residue. We have come to such discord with nature,” notes Bouchard in his manifesto regarding the creative Buy ANY 1 item at regular price,get 2nd of equal or lesser value source for his work. New Creations is at 22409 McIntosh Ave. and is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 11 a.m to 4 valid Saturday July 16th & Sunday July 17th ONLY One coupon per customer p.m. The gallery features a different artist each month.

Maurice Bouchard’s Cityscape detail (left), City and smoke (middle), and Landscape and clouds (above) shows how the artist feels about consumption and its role in our environment.

As you know, prevention is better than cure, so it helps to know what thieves are looking for and how to avoid common mistakes when leaving your home unattended.

BEAT THE HEAT Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Jane Baile, arborist for the District of Maple Ridge, stood with the District’s newly converted zero-emissions pickup truck.

Green pickup truck makes for quiet days A zero-emissions vehicle developed by District staff is used by arborist as part of everyday fleet. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Every morning, Jane Baile arrives at her job and unplugs her work truck. The operations supervisor and arborist at the District of Maple Ridge drives truck “Sustainability is a number 87, a holistic attitude and you 2008 white GMC Sonoma pickup have to be conscious of it truck, which has in our daily lives.” been rebuilt to Jane Baile operate fully on electric power. Baile clocks about 50 kilometres a day, at a cost of only $1.30 per day. As the District’s arborist, Baile needs a vehicle to get around to various landscaping meetings, hazardous tree assessments, inspection, and on-site meetings with her team, but she doesn’t require a larger or full-size truck. “I’m an environmentalist and I’m trying to educate the public about the merits of trees creating clean air and taking care of the heat sink,” Baile said about keeping a low environmental footprint. “I just need wheels to get around,” she said. “Sustainability is a holistic attitude and you have to be conscious of it in our daily lives.” The District intends to measure the usefulness of the electric truck by keeping track of the kilometres, voltage, and temperature. Baile is only the first to use the truck, but the District is looking into who drives the most, who clocks the most kilometres and who is the most cost effective person to use it. The new ‘Zero Emission Vehicle’ was built by George Veltin, with the assistance of his colleagues at the operations centre garage, using a $13,000 conversion kit. The old motor and transmission were removed and the bed now tips up. District spokesperson Fred Armstrong said the weight of the truck increased by about 50 pounds. The maintenance fees will lower, and the carbon footprint will be improved. “It’s quite brilliant,” said Armstrong. “They are a talented group of people (in the works yard) and were able to do the work themselves.” More conversions are not yet planned. First they will evaluate how this one does and do a needs assessment. Currently, the District has nine Toyota Prius and 14 Ford Escape hybrids in the fleet. “It does everything a regular car does, you just have to be patient,” Baile said. “It’s slow off the mark, but I can get it up to 60 or 80 when needed.”

Competition

Local guard defends gold medal One Maple Ridge resident will be competing for his second time at the World Police and Fire Games this summer. by Amy Judd ajudd@mrtimes.com

Vince Martin’s bicep muscles are about the size of an average person’s head. The 39-year-old federal correctional officer can bench press about 385 pounds, and deadlift about 606 pounds – and make it look easy while doing both. Martin is currently in training to compete at the 2011 World Police and Fire Games in New York, taking place from Aug. 26 to Sept. 5. He will be defending his gold medal from the 2009 games in Vancouver in the push-pull event, (bench press and deadlift), and also hoping to break more world records, as he did two years ago. “One of my co-workers said to me ‘do you understand you are the strongest law enforcement officer in the world?’,” said Martin, “And I thought about it, and said ‘yeah I guess I am’,” he laughed. The World Police and Fire Games takes place every two years, and is open to anyone working in law enforcement, including firefighters. It is the second largest multi-sport event in the world, behind the Summer Olympic Games. Martin trains five to six days a week at Champion Athletic Club in Maple Ridge. “This is my home gym,” he said, adding that when he is working in Abbotsford he sometimes train at Mamba MMA gym. Champion owner Steve Moghari has known Martin for almost two decades, and said he has “extreme potential” to go as far as he wants to go. “This man has been designed for a very powerful man,” said Moghari. “Vincent definitely has a great future.” “Champion creates champions,” added Martin. He is a little humble about his success and achievements, and said that without the support of his wife Heather and his friends and training partners, he wouldn’t be able to achieve any of this. “Definitely family and having that support is very important.” Martin also credits Clay and Abraham Gagnon, Mike Wilson,

Youth theatre group takes on classic Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance will be presented twice on Saturday at the ACT.

Cayla Lynn, Alexandria Shankland, Laura Dand, Rebecca King, Lexie St. Cyr, and Sofia Acciarresi will perform in Odean Theatre’s Pirates of Penzance at the ACT on July 16, 2011.

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Eleven days of rehearsal, 26 teens, three directors, and lots of creative energy will result in a production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance this Saturday at the ACT. Pirates and bobbies will be on stage with a raucus, farcical take on the classic operetta put on by Odeum Theatre, led by Maple Ridge’s Rayne Beveridge. While high schools have several months and often double the cast to work with, Odeum Theatre puts a full production together in 11 days – full days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except Sundays when they just do a half day. “I like to believe our performance is as put-together as other high school productions,” Beveridge said. Some teens come back year after year, and Beveridge said he’s impressed with the calibre of their performances. The teens arrive on the

first day with no prior knowledge about which parts they’ll be playing and not necessarily even familiar with the music. But within a week and half, they are ready to get up on the stage and perform before a live audience at Maple Ridge’s premier venue. Beveridge said he’s feeling confident about the group performing at the ACT on Saturday, despite the short rehearsal time. “I’m not even worried,” Beveridge said on Tuesday afternoon of the 12 to 17 year olds. “I know they’ll pull it together.” The group of 26 teens

has been practiding at Western Academy of Martial Arts but a major sponsor of the production is the Bergthorsen Academy of Musical Arts where Beveridge works as a voice instructor. The musical director is Clark Schaufele from Montreal and Cari Russell from Calgary is the theatare director. Beveridge is the artistic director of the production. This classic satirical comedy, revitalized with a few colourful contemporary touches, is full of timeless humour. Odeum Theatre has put on full productions in Maple Ridge for several

years running. More than half of the teens performing study voice privately, perform in the BAMA Glee Club, and in school productions. Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance is being performed Saturday, July 16, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the ACT. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and are available at the ACT Maple Ridge and the Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts.

From the City to the Valley

ELLIOTT - Morris Burton November 27, 1939 Paddockwood, Saskatchewan June 30, 2011 Maple Ridge, British Columbia. It is with great sadness that we announced the passing of our loving husband and father. Morris leaves behind his wife of 47 years Edith, his daughter Lenore (Bryan Deagle) and his grandchildren Braedyn and Rene´ Ann. Predeceased by his parents Effie and Burt Elliott and his eldest brother Olin Elliott. Morris loved the great outdoors and was never happier than when out camping, hunting or canoeing. Before he became a professional archer, Morris represented Canada at the 1971 World Archery Championships in York, England. Over the years he won many tournaments and trophies. After archery Morris became involved in traditional rifles. Summers he spent camping and shooting muzzle loaded long rifles at black powder rendezvous. His daughter Lenore joined him at many of these events. After retiring from the carpentry trades in 1996 he started his dream job and opened Kanaka Creek Canoes. Here he created beautiful hand crafted wood and canvas canoes. Morris was in high demand as a restorer and builder. Morris’ canoes have been shipped to Japan, Switzerland, the USA and across Canada; several have been used in movies, TV documentaries and print ads over the years. Edith and Lenore would like to express our sincere thanks to Dr. M. Milewski for his care and kindness over the years. Thank you also to, the first floor RNs, LPN’s and Care Staff at the Maple Ridge Seniors Village for all of their compassion, caring and thoughtfulness. A celebration of Morris’s life will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel, 224th Street, Maple Ridge, on July 23rd, 2011 at 2:00 pm. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers Edith and Lenore would appreciate a donation to the Parkinson’s Society of BC in Morris’ name. Deeply loved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, friend. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca

WARKE - David Alexander Oct 5th, 1955 - July 8th 2011 It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of David Warke.

David’s career as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer gave him the opportunity to travel and work around the world making numerous friends along the way. A celebration of David’s life will take place at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel 11765 224th street, Maple Ridge on Sunday July 17th at 1pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. Condolences can be sent to www.gardenhill.ca

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Last week of domesticity, sluggishness and security themes. Soon (Friday night onward) a surge of pleasure, creativity and romance will arrive! While you’re waiting, finish important tasks. Complete real estate deals, foundational garden and household chores (e.g., soil improvement, plumbing, laying a new cement walkway). If it applies, “write the end” to an association or relationship. Sunday’s for joy and friends. Retreat, rest and plan Monday/Tuesday. You might need to handle an administrative chore. Be charitable. Your energy and charisma surge Wednesday to Friday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Complete home-oriented and communication tasks, answer mail, etc. Start new communications projects only if they’re short ones. A slow-down approaches. Friends remain affectionate, gracious. Social delights, flirtations, entertainment and popularity buoy you Sunday night to Tuesday. Be cautious with money Tuesday; don’t let friends make you overspend. Retreat, rest Wednesday to Friday eve – you can accomplish in governmental areas, but watch legalities, ethics. Be cautious Wednesday— safety rules! Your energy, charisma and clout surge Friday night, Saturday – joy, luck abound! Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on money, earnings, collecting and paying, buying/ selling and sensual attractions. This is a go-ahead time, with no major obstacles – so take action! (But finish rather than start projects.) Sunday’s for thinking, culture, foreign movies, gentle love – but don’t start anything. You’re ambitious (or should be) Monday/Tuesday – success is available, but watch impatience or friction Tuesday early afternoon. (Just before and after this, a great career-money idea or opening could occur!) Your hopes rise Wednesday to Friday – flirtations, social delights arrive!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and clout continue high – but now to August 26, finish rather than start projects and relationships. Soon, an old friend and an old money situation will return, and your ambition will be sparked anew (in something old). But that’s August. Sunday’s easy but “empty.” Research, enjoy mystery. Sweet understanding, gentle love, culture, intellectual arenas and far travel fill Monday/Tuesday. (Temper is a liability Tuesday afternoon.) Be ambitious, chase career Wednesday to Friday. (Beware subtle opposition Wednesday night.) Saturday: party time! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Use this week and next to finish rather than start projects, ventures. They are two very successful weeks, so finish big, significant things, even projects you put aside weeks or months ago. Your legal, travel and love hopes remain high (though your greatest luck lies in career, ambition, this year). You can find aid in government, from civil servants or head office. Sunday’s intriguing but sign nothing. Mysteries, finances, sexual urges fill Monday/ Tuesday – successfully, except Tuesday afternoon. Wisdom, gentle love bless Wednesday to Friday. Be ambitious Saturday – luck’s there! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes, popularity remain high. A meaningful relationship could start Monday/Tuesday or Friday night into Saturday. The best for the long-term would be a link that forms Tuesday eve/night, or Saturday. Monday/Tuesday also feature opportunities and opposition – be diplomatic. Wednesday to Friday brings secrets, research, subconscious urges, intimacy, lifestyle changes, health diagnosis and large finances. Luck here is jumbled, some good, some bad – best Thursday noon onward. All week (excepting those relationships) focus on finishing rather than starting. Saturday, you win!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The accent remains on ambition, career, prestige relationships, dealing with authorities and higher-ups. This week is smooth and successful – but concentrate on finishing important projects, even those from the past (not older than a year) rather than starting big new ventures. Sunday’s pleasurable, romantic – but yields little. Tackle work or health concerns Monday/Tuesday. Wednesday to Friday brings opportunities, exciting relationships, new horizons, challenges and oppositions. Take care Wednesday p.m. – arguments have large import. Lucky money, intimacy Saturday – say yes! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A slow-down occupies the horizon, so finish or give another boost to important projects this week and next. Avoid big new starts. Both weeks are smooth, successful. Your present flow of goodwill, intellectual and cultural ease, will be replaced by a power-packed, ambitious month starting Friday night. (But the four weeks following will bring a career/business project from the past, or turn an ongoing one in mild circles, so don’t plan a brand new project for August.) Rest Sunday. Romance, creativity flow Monday/Tuesday: you’re a winner! Saturday, lucky opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Mysteries, health concerns, “big finances,” other people’s money, inheritances, lifestyle changes, diagnosis, sexual urges – these continue auspiciously. Finish or further big projects rather than starting new ones. All runs smoothly. (Well, don’t argue over loyalty Tuesday afternoon nor let money overrule love Wednesday night.) Monday/Tuesday highlight home, kids, security. Wednesday to Friday features romance, pleasure, beauty. Friday night begins four weeks of intellectual, travel, international, cultural, love and “idea-transmission” involvements – from the past.

July 17 - 23, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Finish or further ongoing projects, rather than start big new ones. A slow-down looms like clouds on the horizon. This week flows very smoothly, if you can sidestep a bit of friction Tuesday afternoon and avoid being heavy-handed Wednesday night. (Sure you can!) Relationships remain sweet, but Friday begins a month of “closed door” activity – confidential meetings, big finances, investments, sexual intimacy, health diagnoses and research. By next week, these spheres will grow affectionate, fortunate – IF you deal with past projects, bonds. Love could strike Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: All runs smoothly this week and next. But complete projects rather than start big new ones. (Small/short ones OK.) Your energy and charisma shine Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Let your bank overrule your heart Tuesday afternoon. Short trips, reports, communications fill Wednesday to Friday. Put a period on a sentence of work. Avoid gossip, sly people Wednesday night. Relax Saturday (in nature, or by looking at houses). A month of surprises, opportunities, fresh horizons, relationships and challenges begins late Friday; the best of these will be from the past. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance, pleasure, games and creativity, risk and adventure end late Friday, so enjoy them while you can. (Friday night brings a month of work and health concerns.) Finish or further important projects in any sphere – don’t start anything new, big, before Aug. 26. Rest deeply Sunday – nothing’s worth doing. Your energy and charisma soar Monday/Tuesday – grab love, other prizes! Don’t be impatient on the home front Tuesday afternoon. Chase money Wednesday to Friday, but be cautious Wednesday night, Thursday morn, when money hits obstacles. Saturday’s busy – errands, friends. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
