Trains

Riding rails of all sizes

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

www.mrtimes.com

The Vancouver TraiNgang, which has five active members from the Maple Ridge area, has been setting up model train displays since 1986. Robert Berbeck’s love for trains, both large and very minute, is evident More by his email address: disPhotos patcher42@hotmail.com. Rewind back to Online Christmas 1964, and Berbeck’s wife stuck a Reading Railroad model caboose in his stocking. “I’ve been at it ever since,” Berbeck said, his fascination with trains dating back even further. His dad worked for CN Express and Berbeck used to ride the train’s engine up and down the rails in Ontario, and during his 27-year career with the navy, Berbeck grew very familiar with the national rail system.

Employment

Job program ending at recycling depot by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Darren Leenders, here with executive director Kim Day, works full-time at the recycling depot.

Almost half the people working at the local recycling depot may be moving on as Community Living BC ends a 20-year program at the facility. The program that supports people with developmental disabilities working at the Ridge Meadows Recycling Depot will no longer be funded by CLBC because, executive director Kim Day was told, the program is an old model. For more than 20 years, the recycling depot has had developmentally disabled people working at its River Road site. Day said the society has worked hard to ensure the people in the program have “a successful work experience” at the recycling depot, and many have gone on to other jobs after their experience there. “There’s many success stories,” Day said. The 29 people who are currently work-

ing there, some full-time, some part-time, some just a few hours a week, all according to their needs and abilities, are supervised by support staff. But Community Living BC’s director of regional operations with the Fraser region, Carla Thiesen, said CLBC is “repurposing” its dollars to ensure people with developmental disabilities get “real jobs for real pay.” Thiesen said the program at Ridge Meadows Recycling is not a real “employment program” rather a day program. But Day pointed out that all the workers who are in the program at the recycling depot are paid minimum wage for the hours they are working. The contract with the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society is coming to a “natural end” on Sept. 30, Thiesen said, and the agency plans to put into a place a transition plan for the individuals who are currently in their program. Funding from Community Living BC

has paid for the support workers, which amount to three and half full-time positions, and the wages of some of the developmentally disabled workers. These people are part of the recycling depot and their loss is “devastating,” Day said. The recycling society has been negotiating with Community Living B.C. for a month, Day said, but “they are not interested in working with us.” But, Day added, she is hopeful they can “turn this around.” “I don’t want to think about plan B because plan A is to fight,” Day said. Day spoke to Maple Ridge council at Monday morning’s workshop, and the society will make a formal presentation at tonight’s (Tuesday) council meeting. “I’ve seen it first hand – [the program] build self-confidence,” said Mayor Ernie Daykin. It also give people with developmental disabilities a “sense of fulfillment” and work-related skills, he added.

About 40 firefighters lined the street in front of Maple Ridge’s Fire Hall 1 to pay respect to emergency personnel and civilians who died 10 years ago in the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Of the 2,996 people killed that day, 24 were Canadian. The solemn ceremony included a bag piper, lowering the Canadian flag, and a moment of silence. Assistant fire chief Howard Exner said that the service extends further than those who died in New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. “Sept. 11 to the Canadian fire service is the time to reflect on all losses,” he said. “Nov. 11 originates from the great war and we remember all the others from all the other wars on Nov. 11. Likewise, Sept. 11 is the day we remember all members of the fire service who have passed away in the line of duty,” Exner explained. Michael Sather, MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, attended the ceremony. “I’m here to commemorate the tragedy of 9/11 and support our local firefighters who are part of the wider fraternity who protect each and everyone of us in our community every day,” Sather said.

Firefighters observed a moment of silence after lowering the Canadian flag at Maple Ridge’s main fire hall. Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather was among a handful who attended the tribute Sunday.

Local veterans to be honoured on 224th The legion will ask mayor and council tonight to dedicate a downtown street to the community’s veterans.

A man was found in Golden Ears Provincial Park on Sunday after being lost for a day, and a hiker northeast of Pitt Meadows was rescued by North Shore Rescue on the Labour Day weekend. The man in Golden Ears was located by helicopter at about 12:30 p.m. the next day. Over the Labour Day weekend, a call came in about a backpacker who was three days overdue and thought to be in the wooded, mountainous area northeast of Pitt Lake. North Shore rescuers located him the next morning, largely unhurt but delayed by an injured knee. • More at www.mrtimes.com

A portion of 224th Street is under consideration to become “Veterans Way.” There is already a sidewalk mosaic honouring veterans on that stretch of road.

A main street in Maple Ridge might become known as “Veterans Way” to honour those who have served this country. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 88 has asked Maple Ridge council to dedicate a portion of 224th Street – from Brown Avenue, where the Legion is located, to Selkirk Avenue – to veterans, and a decision is scheduled for tonight’s (Tuesday’s) council meeting. But at Monday’s workshop meeting, it received support from mayor and council. Mayor Ernie Daykin said it’s a “no brainer” for the District of Maple Ridge. “You look at what the legion has contributed to the city... they’re doing some great

stuff,” Daykin said. It will also honour local veterans, he added. If council endorses the plan tonight, markers will be placed along the street. The legion will foot the bill of $3,000 for the markers. The legal name of the street wouldn’t change, however. District staff recommended council endorse the rededication of the street, and further suggested that other community groups might be want to explore the same type of partnerships to “commemorate community assets and history.” The legion approached the District of Maple Ridge in February about the project, citing their ongoing relationship and the Legion’s desire to “add to the incredible momentum that [mayor and council] have created with the Downtown Enhancement Project.” Each year the Remembrance Day parade follows that strip of 224th Street. It attracts between 4,000 and 5,000 people, who come out to honour the community’s veterans.

A non-partisan group wants to raise the number of people voting – especially in local elections. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

They are politically active – but their goal is to be non-partisan. The Hummingbird Connection is a newly formed citizens advocacy group that wants to “encourage citizen participation in democratic government,” and they have launched their group just in time to get people out to vote in the November municipal election. “We know how much impact the municipal level of government has on our lives,” said Martin Dmitrieff, a high school teacher at Maple Ridge Secondary, who came to Maple Ridge municipal hall on Friday afternoon to launch the advocacy group. Kiersten Duncan, who just graduated from Samuel Robertson Technical School, is barely of voting age, but has been interested in politics since she was 11. The Hummingbird Connection is a “grassroots” organization, Duncan said. “It gives [people] a support network and a way to get involved,” she said. At high school, she felt out of place when it became obvious that she was well grounded in her knowledge of politics. But that didn’t stop her from helping to push young people to vote in the spring federal election. “The majority of my generation don’t care [about politics] because they think

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

A group of politically minded citizens want people to be less apathetic about issues. they can’t make a difference,” she added. However, the more information they get and the more they see how politics does affect their lives, the more they get involved, she added. The group has chosen purple as its colour since no political party uses it. They are excluding politicians from the group to avoid any potential or perceived conflict of interest. According to organizer Bernice Rolls, the name of the group “Hummingbird Connection” is based on an aboriginal tale of the small animal that didn’t flee the forest fire but stayed to put it out drop by drop, saying “I’m doing what I can.” Rolls pointed out that municipal government has the most direct effect on the lives of Maple Ridge residents. But only 29.05 per cent of the Maple Ridge population voted in the 2008 municipal election, something the group would like to see change for the better.

Police hunt

Old man propositions teen Maple Ridge Mounties are trying to identify a possible sexual deviant. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

A man in his 70s made a sexual overture to a Maple Ridge teenager, prompting police to issue an alert. A comment about sexual touching was made to the teen boy back on Friday, July 8. The elderly man approached the boy at about 8:30 p.m., while he was walking on 228th Street, near Dewdney Trunk Road. Mounties are now asking for help to identify this possible sexual deviant. Police said the teen kept his wits about him and walked away from the suspect, who did not try to touch him.

“We commend the victim in this case,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. “He certainly protected himself by just walking away, and not engaging the suspect in any conversation, or even making eye contact,” she added. “The victim has never seen this man before, and police would really like to identify the suspect, to find out his intentions,” Dunlop said. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his 70s, about 5 ft. 9 in., with a medium build, and a grey beard. He was wearing a green baseball hat, beige pants, and black shoes. Anyone with any information as to the identity of the suspect is asked to call police at 604-463-6251.

Fire burned through the roof and gutted this Alouette Road home in north Maple Ridge early Saturday morning.

Fire

Flames gut high-end home

by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

A luxury house in north Maple Ridge was destroyed by fire Saturday morning. Maple Ridge fire chief Dane Spence said the couple who live at the home at 12953 Alouette Road escaped in the nick of time. “The family awoke to the sounds and smells of the fire only had time to get out

with the clothes on their back. Everything is damaged by smoke and fire,” Spence said. The fire “very quickly got into the attic” in the middle of the night when the couple were sleeping, according to Spence. “There is nothing to suggest this is anything other than an accidental fire,” he explained. A security guard at the rancher-style brick home said the couple are traumatized by the fire and “in no shape to talk to anyone.”

Our View

Parks board clears the air We’re not entirely clear: is it a shortage of oxygen to the brain, or the poisonous chemicals that cigarettes exude that lead some smokers to a questionable understanding of reality? Metro Vancouver parks committee chair Gayle Martin was one of a few members who unsuccessfully voted against a motion to restrict smoking to designated areas within Metro parks. It’s not at all surprising that Martin is a smoker. In defence of her defence of unbridled smoking, she maintained, “… people are getting fed up with everything being legislated.” Actually, it’s more likely that people are finally getting fed up with smokers fouling their air. Recent surveys indicate that smoking is at an all-time low in Canada, with B.C. leading the way to what will certainly translate into a future with less cancer, emphysema, and other tobaccoinflicted diseases. Even more encouraging are numbers indicating that fewer youngsters are smoking. According to the most recent Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey, smoking among teens aged 15 to 17 fell to nine per cent in 2010 – the lowest rate ever in an age group considered the key target in the fight against smoking. Despite the parks committee chair’s smoky reasoning, the recommendation for extensive smoking restrictions in Metro parks was passed, and is expected to be put before the full Metro Vancouver board at its Sept. 23 meeting. If passed, the ban could take effect as of Jan. 1, 2012. It would be a promising start to a brand new year. – B.G.

Environmental issues

Smart meter unwanted I have written to BC Hydro on several occasions and told them that my home is off limits to smart meters. I am concerned about potential health issues linked to the technology these meters utilize, the possibility for privacy invasion, and the irresponsibility our government is displaying in claiming these meters are safe and will save money when, in fact, neither is true. While I understand the doubts some people have in regard to wireless technologies being potentially harmful, the World Health Organization has recognized them as being so and, whether our government is on board or not, we must not be the last to protect ourselves from the danger. To call these meters “green” is an

Federal politics

Put B.C. first Dear Editor,

I agree that Vancouver should not name a street after Jack Layton. He seemed to be a very nice person, but suggesting that a street or bikeway be named after him seems like just riding the emotional bandwagon that rolled across the country upon his untimely death. Let’s honour deserving British Columbians first.

affront to every environmentally conscious person out there. There are other issues attached to Smart Meters, not the least of which is that they are not going to be cost-effective. In fact, the pilot project for smart meters was discontinued in 38 counties in California alone, because it was found that they would be more expensive than initially projected. The maintenance and upgrading costs are supposed to be quite high – a cost that will be passed on to the consumer. Additionally, BC Hydro has admitted that this specific technology makes it possible for the individual’s movements to be monitored. Your most intimate personal life is under scrutiny when these little boxes are affixed to your homes. The fact that they constantly pulse radiation that can hurt your family’s health is just a sidebar. When I voiced these concerns to BC Hydro, I received a series of condescending letters suggesting I don’t “understand” the situation. I have educated myself about this kind of technology, and I don’t want it attached to my house. That is my fundamental right as a Canadian. I worked hard to get my home, and continue to do so to maintain it, and I should not be forced to allow a government agency to do whatever it wishes to it. None of us should. Catherine Schreiber, Maple Ridge

Suzanne Starrie, Maple Ridge

Order of BC

Campbell not deserving

Dear Editor,

I come from a time when people who received public recognition had earned it. They were volunteers who went over and above the call of duty. They were people who gave so much of their spare time to help those who were marginalized by society. Groups who would get together and build a firehall out in the rural areas because there was no money otherwise. Councillors and reeves who received no pay for their work servicing in the community. In short, these people were “unselfish.” We are constantly hearing from those who take our tax dollars: “If we want the best people for the job we must pay the top dollar.” Maybe that’s true. Maybe it’s not. However, we have been paying top dollar for all of our politicians and bureaucrats for decades, and yet we get things like the Maple Ridge downtown core “fiasco.” We have heard the BC Ferries boss, David Hahn, is being paid in excess of $1million per year and has accumulated two separate pensions. Likewise with Gordon Campbell. He has been paid handsomely for his service, (a job he fought for, it wasn’t forced upon him, against his will). He is now eligible for a B.C. pension, plus his pay cheque for being our “Man in England.” All his expenses have been paid while he was in office, (premier, leader of the opposition, and mayor of Vancouver). All, extremely coveted jobs. So, if he has been well compensated and generally held in high esteem, (due to the nature of the office of premier), why does he deserve the Order

of B.C.? He has done nothing out of the ordinary – nothing over and above that which was expected of him. Saved nary a life as a hero. He hasn’t even stopped on the side of the road to assist a stranded damsel in distress. (If he had, we would surely have heard all about it). He has suffered no terminal disease for which he would be entitled to mass sympathy. Everything Gordon Campbell has done has been for Gordon Campbell. I mean, he was expected to run the province for the money we have, and continue to pay him. I can only assume this is simply another case of one friend propping up the ego of another, (at the expense of those who have truly “earned” the honour), or as it is so well known in other terms “brown nosing.”

Gordo should decline honour

Dear Editor,

If Gordon Campbell were an honourable person, whether he deserves the Order of B.C. or not, he would say, “You know, this award is not all about me.” His speech would continue: “This award is about all these people and their accomplishments. “This controversy is overshadowing their pride in being nominated. Therefore, I will gratefully decline the nomination.” Anyone hear that happening? Pardon? No? Thought not. Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

Neighbourhoods

Port Haney Day reflects of area’s improvements Haney House and the Brickyard Park provide the venue for Port Haney Day. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

P

ort Haney will celebrate its heritage value this Sunday as a group of local residents continues to improve and revitalize the area. What used to be the central hub of Maple Ridge up to the 1970s became a derelict, rundown area of town as the outer areas developed with subdivisions and single-family homes. But the District of Maple Ridge and a group of citizens are trying to turn things around. The Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative, a group that’s come together to make positive changes to the rundown and sometimes crime-infested area, will host the first ever Port Haney Day on Sunday, Sept. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. The event takes place at Haney House, 11612 224th St. and the nearby Brickyard Park, and will feature historical displays, tours of Haney House and the neighbourhood, games for children, and door prizes. Port Haney Day is meant for anyone, but especially residents and former residents of Port Haney. The event, conceived as a “meet your neighbour” opportunity, has been organized by a volunteer committee of residents with the support of the Maple Ridge Museum, staff from Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows parks and leisure services, and local businesses – including the TIMES. The Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative was launched in spring 2010 by the District of Maple Ridge to engage Port Haney residents in a discussion about the area’s issues and changing character.

TIMES files

The Haney House will be the venue for Port Haney Day, a celebration of the historic neighbourhood. The house is full of artifacts from the past (right). In conjunction, the District has introduced incentives for builders and developers in the core and pushed to get rid of the “ghetto,” Northumberland Court, a crime-infested complex on Fraser Street. The Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative has held clean-up parties in the area and has launched a traffic committee to deal with parking problems and speeding cars. The initiative is chaired by two longtime residents, Yvonne Desabrais and Chris Iversen.

Its agenda is driven by residents who wish to improve their neighbourhood and foster an environment that is inclusive, holistic, and safe for all. The Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative received a grant of $15,000 this year from the District of Maple Ridge to continue its efforts to make Haney a safe,

connected place to live and work in. Last year, the group received a grant for $25,000 from the District to jump start the initiatives, and the money helps pay for a staff person working on their various initiatives. The group is partnering with the District of Maple Ridge, RCMP, business improvement association, and TransLink to improve Haney. 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. “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. Desabrais is happy with the progress over the year the group has been active in Haney, for example, there’s improved lighting in the neighbourhood, a cleanup party took place in April, and now Sunday’s Port Haney Day. Port Haney Day will take place in the historic Haney House at 11612 224th St. and Brickyard Park on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.

Dealing with a terminally ill friend or family member is no time for fun, but supporting those who need help most can be during the third annual Hoedown for Hospice. “It’s casual, people can wear their jeans, so it’s the opposite of a gala,” said Kristina Murray, fundraising and special events coordinator with the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society. Tickets for the Sept. 17 event are $45, just $40 for seniors, and include a gourmet burger buffet, dancing, live entertainment, silent auction, and raffle. All proceeds go to support the programs of the local hospice society. “It provides support in the areas of our palliative programs and grief and bereavement programs,” Murray noted. “Not only do we do one-on-one and group support, but we also have an extensive volunteer training program,” she said, noting it’s the people who are at the heart of this strongly volunteer-driven organization Entertainment for the evening includes the Golden Spike can-can dancers, a Mexican folklore dance group, and a special appearance by local singer Natasha Zimbaro. The country-style event begins Saturday, at 6 p.m. at the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities

ROSIE is beautiful young cat with the cheerful exuberance of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh and the lively confidence of a kitten. Rosie has lived with dogs and young children.

Someone had been feeding a hungry little cat who was clearly homeless, so they scooped her up and brought her to us. MAGDALENA had proven to be a friendly little thing.

Whoever takes Magdalena home will find themselves with a friendly little companion who has lots of personality.

Paws and Claws

Western Canada’s newest film festival goes wild Amateur movie makers are invited to submit their works.

A new film festival showcasing local wildlife-inspired short films and documentaries, The Paws and Claws Film Festival, will make its debut next month. The film festival, presented by the BC SPCA’s Wild Animal

Rehabilitation Centre runs Oct. 31 to Nov. 5 in Victoria. “We are really excited about the launch of this first ever annual film festival,” said Gina Bugslag, BC SPCA events coordinator for Vancouver Island. “The purpose of the festival is to promote awareness, knowledge and understanding of wildlife, habitat, people and nature,

through excellence in film, television, and other media. We are inviting all Western Canadian filmmakers, first time, amateur or pros of any age, to submit their take on the diversity of wildlife in this part of the world and the challenges they face. “We’re eagerly looking forward to reviewing the submissions and showcasing them at a special

soiree when the festival wraps up Nov. 5.” Films can be submitted on one of three themes: youth wildlife education, urban wildlife; wild settings. The entry fee is $10; films made in any style or genre from 2009 and on are eligible. The deadline is Oct. 15, and nominated films will be screened during the festival, with a screen-

Animal welfare

Racing pigeon off course A wayward bird flying from Keremeos to its home in Maple Ridge ended up in Nanaimo.

Opening October 1, 2011 Sunridge Gardens is a new seniors’ community located in Murrayville, in the Township of Langley. Developed by Century Group as part of Bria Communities, Sunridge Gardens is for people who want the freedom to be themselves, to live life independently and embrace each day as it comes.

by Danielle Bell

Postmedia Network Inc.

A wayward racing pigeon spent a week recouperating in Nanaimo, before coming back home to Maple Ridge. The 350-gram pigeon was supposed to fly from Keremeos to its home in Maple Ridge during a recent race. But instead, it veered dozens of kilometres off course and crossed the Strait of Georgia, where it was rescued weak, yet uninjured at a recycling station in Nanaimo on Aug. 21. Last month’s race was approximately 400 kilometres. But the bird overshot the mark and tacked on nearly 100 extra kilometres by flying to Vancouver Island, said veterinarian Ken Langelier of Island Veterinary Hospital. “This bird decided to have a holiday in Nanaimo. He’s lost the race,” Langelier joked while still caring for the pigeon. “We’ve been fattening it.”

Employment Opportunities at Sunridge Gardens

Postmedia Network Inc.

Veterinarian Ken Langelier holds a wayward Maple RIdge racing pigeon that was recovering after being found in Nanaimo. Veterinary staff used bracelets on the pigeon to track down its owner in Maple Ridge. One was a permanent identification bracelet and another, which has a chip, to record the time of the bird during the race. About a week later, the rescued bird is back home and safe. Terry Dekuyper of Island Veterinary Hospital was heading to the Lower Mainland to visit a friend and took the pigeon with her. Staff had hoped to organize some way for the pigeon to get to the Lower Mainland, so it would not have such a big journey

ahead. So Dekuyper carried the bird in a box, cut with holes, on the ferry. The bird was quiet during the ferry ride, she said. Shortly after arriving at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal, Dekuyper released the pigeon. “It made my weekend,” said Dekuyper. “It just flew off my hand.” The bird was let go at 12:30 p.m. and arrived safely at home in Maple Ride less than five hours later at 5:20 p.m. The owner followed up with vet staff to say the bird was in excellent condition.

Elaine Comeau will be on Dragons’ Den on Sept. 28 asking for help with her product EasyDaysies.

Business

Mom-preneur seeks help from Dragons

Maple Ridge teacher and mother of three needs some support for her successful business. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Elaine Comeau wants to get her business off her kitchen table. To help her do that, she’ll be on Dragons’ Den on Sept. 28 asking for help from the Dragons to help her better market EasyDaysies – a “visual routine” that helps organize the busy lives of families. Comeau said her story is like that of many “mom-preneurs” aspiring to make something from the spark of a brilliant idea. But with her business booming, Comeau said she needs some outside expertise and know-how to help her “take it to the next level.” “I know it can be so much bigger,” Comeau said. Comeau is the mother of three small children and an elementary school teacher. For the first eight years of her teaching career, she had parents constantly asking her to create a visual routine for them at home similar to the one she had made for the front of my classroom to help their kids at home. After making these visual routines for free for eight years, she started doing her

research and discovered that there was nothing like it out there. Not only is her product popular with families who need to set up routines for their kids, they’re also being sold to seniors with memory-loss issues to help them get through their day more independently. Comeau launched her first product two days after the birth of her third child in September 2008. She has been packaging products and sending of orders from her kitchen table often until after 3 a.m. and making business calls at 6 a.m. to the East Coast before the children wake up. It has been a huge learning curve for Comeau, being primarily a mother and a school teacher and now a manufacturer, accountant, sale rep, receivables, shipper, creative director, marketing director, and CEO – all at her kitchen table. Comeau said her orders are coming in faster than her kitchen table can keep up with – sales have quadrupled every quarter. “Ever since I launched my first product I have had many people tell me that I should go on Dragons’ Den,” she said. Although monetary help would give her business a boost, she said the advice she could receive from the successful businesspeople on Dragons’ Den is what she really needs. Comeau and her family will be on Dragons’ Den, which airs on CBC Television, on Sept. 28 at 8 p.m.

Jessica Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC !All statements made on the Bell website are sent by delighted users. All are real people. Most have listed phone numbers and can be called for advice. No money is paid to them. Their reward is the relief they are getting. All say #60 works within days not months, not years. It’s more effective than what they used before.

SIENNA FLOORING Formerly “PoCo Flooring & Tile”

TILE & FLOORING CASH & CARRY

Saving lives The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows branch of St. John Ambulance recently donated an automatic external defibrillator to Thomas Haney Secondary. Here the AED was presented to THSS principal Sean Nosek with the school district’s health and safety officer Judy Dueck (far left) on-hand as well.

HUGE SELECTION Sunday marred by crashes STARTING FROM $ Police

Emergency personnel were kept busy with three separate crashes Sunday afternoon in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. The first occurred at 5:15 p.m. on 203rd Street at Golden Ears Way. Three people had to be taken to hospital with injuries from the two-vehicle crash. As police and paramedics were dealing with the accident, a second crash occurred on Harris Road and 122nd Avenue in Pitt Meadows, which was reported only 10 minutes later. “We had to extricate one patient with the jaws of life, then she was driven to

Harris Road Park and airlifted to Royal Columbian,” said Pitt Meadows assistant fire chief Brad Perrie. “We were 15 minutes into the first, when we got the second call,” Perrie explained. Both Pitt Meadows accidents were redlight incidents, said Perrie. Five minutes later a third crash was reported at the Lougheed Highway on the entrance ramp to Golden Ears Way, where a truck towing a boat was involved with an SUV. •More online at www.mrtimes.com

THE TERRY FOX RUN Downtown Maple Ridge’s Business Improvement Association provided manpower to paint over graffiti tags on Dewdney Trunk Road.

FOR CANCER RESEARCH

Vandalism

‘Clean Team’ assists

A business improvement association covers graffiti with a bucket of paint, brushes, and a little elbow grease. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Tag! You’re it! Downtown Maple Ridge was hit hard by graffiti taggers during the last week before school, but it’s no lunch-hour game. “Over the past week we’ve had so many reported – like 50 or 60,” said Ineke Boekhorst, executive director of the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association. “There’s a lot of the same tags over and over again,” Boekhorst added. Boekhorst recommends that people report any graffiti or any information identifying graffiti vandals to the RCMP, or the

bylaw department of the District of Maple Ridge. “We have contacted lots of business owners and many are [painting over the graffiti] themselves,” she said. The annual cost of removing all the graffiti from properties is “enormous and many small businesses cannot afford to repeatedly contract a painter or get the graffiti removed.” It is a proven fact that graffiti removed within 24 hours usually doesn’t return. If graffiti stays for a longer period of time, other taggers will add their mark as well, Boekhorst explained. The DMRBIA will provide help to independent downtown Maple Ridge business and property owners, if possible, through their “Clean Team.” DMRBIA staff will cover graffiti, free of charge, if the business or property owner provides the paint. Contact the DMRBIA at 604-467-2420.

Survivor runs for cancer cure

Nine weeks after having a double mastectomy, a Pitt Meadows’-raised woman will be part of Run for the Cure. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

The days of thinking that breast cancer is an old ladies’ disease are over. Today, men and women of all ages are finding themselves diagnosed with the sometimes deadly ailment. Chrissie Abfalter is only 27 and had a double mastectomy less than two months ago. “I was so relieved when it was over and done with,” Abfalter said about her July 26 operation. Abfalter had found non-cancerous lumps previously and was following up with a semi-routine ultrasound when the doctor noticed something unusual in her breast tissue. She was sent for a mammogram and biopsy, and within a couple weeks the results came back. “I wasn’t scared. My doctor reassured me and said it is uncommon [to have breast cancer] being 27,” explained Abfalter. When she found out it was cancer, she was told it was detected early and to consider having a mastectomy. “The more I thought about it, the more I was OK with it because it was the most I could do to prevent it from coming back in the future,” she said. During the surgery she also had lymph nodes removed to check for signs of invasion. Right now Abfalter has tissue expanders and will face a second surgery to remove them and get implants. “I know five people around age 30 who were diagnosed with breast cancer,” said her older sister Melanie Harris.

Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Chrissie Abfalter (green top) is surrounded by her mom Judy Dickie, sister Melanie Harris, nephew Sawyer, and niece Scout in Maple Ridge on Sept. 7. Abfalter is only 27, was diagnosed with breast cancer, and underwent a double mastectomy in July. Her mother Judy Dickie said it is important that young people know that they are susceptible, too. “This experience is life changing. I know people say that, but it’s true, it puts things in perspective,” Dickie said. “She looks good, but she is not completely herself yet,” said Dickie, noting Abfalter tires easily. “She has been totally amazing throughout,” said Harris, who started the Rack Pack, a group of 23 friends and family who will take part in the CIBC Run for the Cure along with 170,000 other Canadians on Oct. 2.
