Santa Claus spreads Christmas cheer

The public can vote at the family recreation centre until Dec. 12 on the best decorated tree. by Maria Rantanen

Every year, A Pitt Meadows Christmas grows, said the City’s communications manager Lorna Jones, and this year there were more than 2,000 people in attendance at Friday evening’s event. “It has been steadily increasing since the first year,” Jones said of the event that is co-organized by the City and the Pitt Meadows Community Foundation. With a new sequoia tree on the hill of Spirit Square covered in Christmas lights, Pitt Meadows residents were able to take in entertainment, sip on hot chocolate, and have hotdogs courtesy of the Pitt Meadows Lions Club. But the evening’s highlight was when Santa Claus and his better half Mrs. Claus arrived in a lit carriage, and children were allowed to give last-minute gift ideas to the jolly old elf and have their pictures taken with the couple. “Santa was warmly welcomed in Pitt Meadows,” Jones said, despite a scare earlier in the day when the wind seemed to be picking up. In the family recreation centre, groups had decorated Christmas trees – the public is invited to vote on the best decorations until Dec. 12.

Finances

Budget pared down at request of Maple Ridge council

District departments were able to find savings to bring down proposed tax increases. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge’s manager of finance is confident a scaled-back budget will meet the District’s financial needs without compromising services. District staff was able to find savings within their budgets bringing the proposed tax increase down from more than five per cent to just

3.91 per cent. When the financial department presented its first budget numbers in the spring with an increase of 5.13 per cent (not including water, sewer, and recycling fees), the direction from council was to find more savings, said Paul Gill, manager of corporate and financial services with the District of Maple Ridge. There would be ways of cutting the budget more, Gill said, but they could end up with a “pay me now or pay me much more later” scenario. District staff recommended against deferring infrastructure renewal and maintenance, using up savings to cushion a tax increase, using

“unstable revenue sources,” for example, gaming grants, deferring capital projects, and amending financial plan assumptions. “All you do is defer the problem instead of dealing with it,” Gill said of using these methods to bring down municipal taxes short term. In order to scale back the proposed increase, certain budget areas were cut back. The parks and recreation increase was scaled down from a half a per cent to 0 .125 per cent. The infrastructure budget line item was also scaled back from a one per cent increase to a half per cent increase.

Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin and the District’s director of finance Paul Gill were poring over budget details at municipal hall on Friday.

Four-year-old Tia Sheaves wants to brush her little cheeks up against grandpa’s prickly beard and give the burly man a hug again. Instead, over the past few weeks, the Maple Ridge youngster has been helping her mother Stacey Rikkinen and other members of their family plaster missing posters around Maple Ridge and Langley, in hopes of finding her grandfather. But those hopes were dashed Monday, when Stacey received a phone call saying her father’s truck had been found torched in Aldergrove, with a dead body inside. While police are waiting for a coroner to confirm the identity of the body, family are fearing the worst. They fear the body might belong to Dan Rikkinen, who went missing a week after his 59th birthday. All the family can do now, Stacey’s husband Justin told The TIMES late Monday afternoon, is wait and hope it’s not him. Langley RCMP were unable to confirm the reports prior to press deadline.

Roxanne Hooper/TIMES

Maple Ridge’s Stacey Rikkinen and her four-year-old daughter Tia, have been putting up flyers in hopes of finding Tia’s missing grandpa (Stacey’s dad Dan Rikkinen), who went missing Nov. 23. But as of Monday, they fear he might be gone.

Rikkinen was apparently already working part-time there, driving truck, and in the days leading up to his disappearance he had been moving a lot of their belongings over to the Island. Describing him, she said her father is short and stocky, standing about 5 ft 6 in with sandy brown/grey hair and blue eyes. He has no medical issues. He is an avid smoker. He is a recovering alcoholic with more than 20 years of sobriety, she said, reaffirming police reports that alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in his disappearance. While comfortable being alone – since much of his life was spent as a long-haul truck driver – he is very friendly, his daughter elaborated. She can never remember seeing him angry, but described him as a bit of a shy man in crowds. If confronted, she’s confident he could hold his own, and doesn’t believe he was mugged outside the bank – which was the last place he was seen after withdrawing a bit of cash. “The hardest part for us is that we don’t have any answers… we just don’t know where he is, or what happened to him,” Stacey said before Monday’s call, noting that in addition to distributing missing flyers, some of his family had been visiting all the places he’s known to frequent, while others were blanketing the Internet – primarily Facebook – with information and requests for help to the public.

I highly recommend Shayne and all the staff at Laminate Warehouse. The price point, quality & their knowledge of the product is second to none. Being a bit of a DIY guy, I've installed a few different types of laminate flooring over the years and their QUICK LOCK system is so easy to install even my 6 year old was helping out! I've referred Laminate Warehouse to family members & clients and have only heard positive feedback. My Mom just had some carpet replaced and she was extremely happy with the service and quality...we would strongly recommend LAMINATE WAREHOUSE to anyone considering new flooring!...........

Ridge Meadows RCMP Const. Mitch Gordon (left) and Const. Dharm Prihar examined the intersection where a cyclist was struck and killed May 24. eastbound on Dewdney, near 232nd Street. The officer turned around with the intention of stopping the SUV. However, police reported that by the time the officer reached the SUV – about 10 blocks east – the vehicle had crashed and was on fire. Helping the woman free of the burning vehicle, the officer focused on dousing the fire, while another RCMP officer arriving on scene noticed a bike on the side of the road. Suspecting there might be more people involved, officers and a police dog began a search of the area.

Cyclist Jon Burstynski, 36, was discovered in a wooded area near the shoulder of the road. He did not survive. On Thursday, with confirmation of the charges finally being approved, Somerville said he couldn’t comment on specifics of the case because it is before the courts “except to say aggressive driving and alcohol involvement were contributing factors, according to our investigation.” Marchand made her first appearance in court on Wednesday, Dec. 5, and will return to court again on Feb. 13.

Six months after a fatal crash on Dewdney Trunk Road claimed the life of a cyclist, police announced that charges have finally been laid against a Maple Ridge woman. Christine Marchand, 52, has been charged with impaired driving causing death. The charges stem from an early morning crash in the 24300 block of Dewdney on May 24, said RCMP Sgt. Dale Somerville. “This has been a very complex investigation, where Ridge Meadows RCMP traffic services and serious crimes unit have worked together to prepare a report to Crown counsel,” he explained Thursday. Police reports at the time indicated that just before 3 a.m. that day, a Mountie spotted a white Kia Sportage speeding

Food bank gets five-ton donation

Whonnock Roofing made its annual donation to Friends In Need Food Bank on Friday. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Five thousand pounds of food were wheeled to the Friends In Need Food Bank on Friday from Save-OnFoods by the crew from Whonnock Roofing. The total food bill for the local roofing company’s annual Christmas shop was $5,208. This is the seventh year brothers

Clay and Bram Gagnon, co-owners of Whonnock Roofing, donned their Santa hats and shopped for food at Save-On-Foods on 227th for the Friends In Need Food Bank. They were joined by the brothers’ children, Belle, Ben, John, Joey, and Jordan, Silas, and baby Jonah. Seven years ago, the Gagnon brothers decided they wanted to do something to give back to the community, and the Friends In Need Food Bank seemed like a natural fit. “We know personally friends and family who’ve needed the services in the past,” Clay said.

For Bram, the fact there are children accessing the food bank services is “crazy.” The roofing company collects the money throughout the year and the morning of the big shop, the crew give up their morning to help collect the food. “They look forward to it every year,” Clay said. Whonnock Roofing has been in business since 1978.

‘Infrastructure deficit’ a looming issue ...continued from page A1

And the general increase, which staff first recommended being raised by three per cent was scaled down to 2.25 per cent. These decreases brought the proposed tax increase down from 5.13 per cent to 3.5 per cent. Added to this is an increase in regional services, water, recycling, and sewer, which will bring taxes up to 3.91 per cent. Gill said the staff has done everything in scaling back proposed increases to not compromise services. Maple Ridge is “lucky” because it is a relatively new community, Gill said, with most infrastructure having been built in the past few decades. But the District has an estimated $1.3 billion in assets, and $40 million should be spent a year on replacement, not the $7 million currently being spent per year on infrastructure replacement. A few years ago, District staff recommended that one per cent per year go towards infrastructure

Our View

Dumb, dumber, drunk drivers We’re done being polite. We’re tired of asking nicely. We are absolutely through cajoling, pleading, begging, and suggesting. Don’t drink and drive. Consider this a written slap for everyone who has ever climbed behind the wheel of a car with a blood alcohol level high enough to set off a Breathalyzer’s blinking lights. Most reading this already know everything that follows: take a cab, call Operation Red Nose, use a designated driver, sleep it off on your friend’s couch. Out of the thousands of people who went out last weekend and had a few beers, some wine, maybe eggnog with a kick, most were entirely responsible. But the same weekend, some people were hauled out of their cars by the RCMP and told they would not be allowed to get back in. Some of them will be spending three months without their driver’s licenses. This should not have come as a surprise. The holiday CounterAttack program has been going on year upon year in B.C. It ramps up around the holidays, but it never really goes away – you can be pulled over in July or December, at New Year’s, Easter, or Arbour Day. At this point, we can only imagine that some tiny fraction of you reading this – the same fraction who drink and drive – are just stupid. You can’t even accuse alcohol of making you stupid. Slip the phone number of Operation Red Nose – 1-877-604-NOSE – into your wallet before the festivities begin. Maybe add a cab company number. Or just get your friend to agree not to drink, and say you’ll do the same the next time you go out. If you can’t accomplish these simple tasks, we’re not going to feel even marginally sorry for you when you get carted off to court and watch your car get towed. We’ll just shake our heads at the never-ending stupidity of the drunk driver. – M.C.

Animal welfare

Better treatment deserved Dear Editor,

A billboard at the intersection of Shaughnessy and Lougheed Highway is the third such to go up in Canada, and no small feat for horse advocates in a collaborative effort to raise awareness about the plight of U.S. and Canadian horses that are being slaughtered in Canada. Around 80,000 horses per year meet this fate. There is a private members bill in Parliament that would prohibit the importation or exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption; however, Canadian people need to know the truth about horse slaughter to garner support for bill C322. Many people are unaware that horses are slaughtered in Canada, and others are under the false impression that horse slaughter is a necessary evil. Comments like, “How else are we going to deal with the horse overpopulation?” or, “The weak, old, and lame horses need somewhere to go,” or, “We eat cows, chickens,

and pigs, so what is the difference?” Such comments are made by people who do not have the correct information. In truth, horse slaughter is a predatory, extremely cruel, and inhumane business, and most of the horses going through the slaughter pipeline are healthy, young animals – cast-offs from irresponsible, unregulated over-breeding in the horse racing industry, from big pharmacy lining their pockets off the suffering of mares and foals, and from people who find themselves in financial difficulty but do not have the moral strength of character to do whatever they can to

Federal politics

Canada now put up for sale Dear Editor,

“When we say that Canada is open for business, we do not mean that Canada is for sale to foreign governments.” – Stephen Harper (Dec 7, 2012) On Friday, Dec 7, that’s exactly what Harper did. It was done with no parliamentary discussion on the merits or hazard it will have on Canada. When the Conservatives finally enact FIPA, we will be held hostage any time CNOOC feels Canada is doing something not in their best interest. Harper was dead against PetroCan being a national oil company, but allows China’s national oil company to have access. This is a country whose human rights is atrocious, but the Conservatives turn a blind eye. The Chairman of CNOOC described that company’s oil investments as “mobile national territory and a strategic weapon.” Our so-called representative Randy Kamp sits idly by like the rest of the trained-seal backbenchers, and says nothing. Welcome to the People’s Republic of Canada.

re-home their horses. Horses are not raised for meat in the U.S. and Canada, and most have lived their lives with humans. People who are connected with horses outside of a “business” arena view the animals as they would a beloved dog or other companion animal. Our government is slaughtering these horses by the thousands and selling the meat overseas – not to the hungry, but to the well-to-do, as a “delicacy.” The consumers are unaware of the toxic medicines that most of these horses have in their systems, which are banned in food-production animals – pretty ludicrous how our government is getting away with that one. The shocking and disturbing undercover videos and witness accounts and expert and veterinarian statements are solid proof that horse slaughter is extremely inhumane. If more Canadians really knew the horror of it, as the billboard states, they would unite in a cry to end it forever, and demand that the horse business be strictly regulated to ensure the lives they make their money on are rewarded justly with humanity and gratefulness. No other animal has had a greater influence on human civilization than the horse. It is time for some payback.

Sinterklaas tradition

Black Pete black mark on country

Monday

As a couple of African heritage and Canadian birth, with a history in Suriname and the Dutch culture and language, we do not support Zwarte Piet in the Sinterklaas tradition. It was a mid-19th century innovation and not integral to the original tradition. “People of colour” born in Canada and abroad, as well as “white” people of colonial origin find the blackface tradition offensive, precisely because it harkens back to a date when “white masters” were typically accompanied by “black” slaves who acted as servants: people brought from the colonies to serve masters in Holland; people who were treated horribly and inhumanely in the colonies,

We hope to see the day when Dutchspeaking people like us can celebrate our history and language without being seen to “give a wink” to those who would covertly denigrate our racial sensibilities. We would appreciate it, if otherwise well-respected businesses in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows would cease to include this racist figure in their celebrations this year.

Taxes not so low with fees added in

One man’s teaching aid leads revolution

Dear Editor,

The Christy Clark Liberals brag that we in B.C. have the lowest tax rate in Canada. They don’t mention that we are the only province in Canada that charges a medical services premium, and when you add that in, we no longer have the lowest taxes in Canada. Since 2001, the Liberals tax cuts have disproportionately benefited corporations and the wealthy. At the same time, we have had significant fee increases in MSP, hydro, ferry costs, and auto insurance, to name a few. All of these put an added strain on the budget of middle class and working families. Today we have a growing inequality between the highest and lowest wage earners. As a result of the tax cuts, we continue to have the highest child poverty rate in the country, home support and other services for seniors are being eroded, we have more people dependent on shelters and food banks to survive, and many young people cannot afford higher education to get better-paying jobs. And let’s not forget the HST deception. A recent poll by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives reinforced what most polls show: 67 per cent of those polled think major corporations do not pay their fair share of taxes, 78 per cent say people in the top 20 per cent of incomes pay too little, and most people would be willing to see their taxes increase for services to people. Sixty per cent agreed with the statement: “Taxes are the price we pay for the quality of life we have in Canada.” Oscar Wilde is reported to have said, “I enjoy paying taxes, they buy me civilization.” Maybe it’s time we had an adult conversation about taxes.

Just Saying by Gordy Robson

I

f Sal Khan has his way, we will never have to argue about class sizes again. When I went to high school, I was one of those students who “didn’t flourish” in the traditional lecture-driven format. There was one teacher, Bill Day, who had the ability to capture the class, and his lectures actually broke through and made learning a joy. As I have the attention span of a gnat, it is no wonder the traditional system and I did not get along. The class that Mr. Day taught had 70 kids in it. I have often wondered why we didn’t take the best teachers, the Bill Days of the world, and videotape them. Over the years, there have been attempts by different groups to reform our education system. Those efforts are usually met with strong resistance from the teachers union and other vested interest groups. Sal Khan is changing that. In 2004, Sal was trying to help his young cousin with her algebra. He was in Boston and she was in New Orleans, so he video-recorded chalkboard lessons and sent them to her

on YouTube. The most amazing thing happened. Strangers began to discover his instructional tapes and started asking for more. In 2009, the demand was so high, Sal quit his job, started producing chalkboard videos full-time, and founded the Khan Academy. Steve Jobs was one of his first admirers, and now Bill Gates has joined his supporters. Anyone in the world can join the Khan Academy and register for free on the Internet. There are more than 3,000 courses now available, covering science, math, economics, and a myriad of other subjects, from the Greek Debt to how the stock market works – all presented in 10-minute chalkboard talks, mostly by Khan himself. His unique style cuts through the fog, using a relaxed voiceover while writing on a screen as if it was a chalkboard. It is remarkably effective. The whole system is designed so that, once you register, you can follow a step-by-step lesson plan that is on demand. The learning exercises are selfpaced. To date, Sal Khan has delivered more than 200 million lessons to the world. Last year, more than 40 million students joined his online talks, and the number is still growing. Some teachers have welcomed the Khan Academy and use it as a teaching aid, which helps them overcome the broad range of student abilities in one classroom. Early on, Khan decided the academy should be a non-profit, and

resisted the temptation to go commercial, despite its success. In seven short years, he has taught more people math than anybody else ever has in the world – ever. And he is just warming up. Volunteers have been translating his chalk talks into 16 languages already, with plans to expand to 70 in the near future. The current library of more than 3,000 topics would take eight years to watch and the way it is set up, every one of those lessons is available to anyone in the world who has access to the web. There are volunteer opportunities – including mentorship roles – all integrated into the same system. So whether you are five or 50, there are courses for you. The Khan Academy will revolutionize the way we teach. Teachers in each country will decide how it is going to fit in with their education system, but the fact is, it is free and available to everyone. In Greece, the teachers haven’t been paid for three months and their pension plans have almost disappeared. Hopefully, B.C. teachers will see the future and treat this remarkable academy as a tool to assist in raising the bar of education. So go to www.khanacademy.org, sign up, take a course, become a tutor, and step into the future. – Gordy Robson is a former Maple RIdge mayor and a local businessman who was raised in this community.

A trip to a remote fishing lodge on the British Columbia coastline is the prize in the second annual Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation lottery. There are only 2,250 tickets available, and last year the tickets sold out two weeks in advance for a trip to Duncanby Lodge for two people. The prize, worth $8,400, includes return flights from Vancouver, accom-

modation, meals, snacks, and house beer and wine. The winning ticket will be drawn on April 3 at 6 p.m. at the Billy Miner Pub and Alehouse. The trip must be used between June 18 and July 16. Tickets are available at the Billy Miner Pub and Alehouse, Witch of Endor Liquor Store, the Office Liquor Store, and at the Outpost Liquor Store. Tickets are $10 each or three for $25. The prize package has been donated by the lodge (for more information, go to www.duncanbylodgemarina.com). Last year, the lottery brought in more than $17,000 for the foundation, and Maple Ridge resident Franz Prokop won the prize package.

Wildlife

Bears will avoid sleeping if fed

The Bear Aware program will take a winter break after being relaunched in Maple Ridge this year.

The Maple Ridge Bear Aware program coordinator is hoping locals won’t keep bears from hibernating this year by feeding them. Bears won’t go to sleep for the winter if there is food around, usually found in unsecured garbages, said Bear Aware community coordinator Rosie

Wijenberg. The Bear Aware program is on a winter break, but Wijenberg said some bears appear to be skipping their winter nap as food is still available in the area. Bears that get habituated to feeding off garbage will eventually turn into problem bears and will have to be put down, she said. In colder climates bears hibernate in response to seasonal food scarcity; however, not all bears will go into hibernation if food is readily available. “People should not assume that our local bears sleep through the

winter,” said Wijenberg. “In particular, local foodconditioned bears have no reason to sleep as some residents continue to supply them with an abundant food source all through the winter… garbage.” In some areas, for example, Albion, Kanaka Creek, and Whonnock, people have been feeding raccoons and deer, but this also attracts bears, Wijenberg said. In response, the conservation officer service can issue $230 fine under the Wildlife Act to residents who don’t get rid of

attractants, she added. Residents are encouraged to call the conservation office via the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277 to report human-bear conflict and wildlife sightings. For more information about Bear Aware, go to www.bearaware.bc.ca.

Include a cover page with your name, address, phone, email address and $5 for each poem submitted. Indicate your age category: Junior (under age 15) Senior (16+) Prizes for poems which best portray the theme. Sponsored by: Black Bond Books, Haney Place Mall. Entrants will receive a certificate, a book of all submitted poems and may be asked to read their creation at the Lantern Festival held the last Friday of February.

Old and new lead chamber Mobile licencing was this year’s highlight for a local business group. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The new board of directors for the Chamber of Commerce serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows has a mix of new and old members, with the current president Ken Holland continuing in his position for another year. The chamber held its annual general meeting last week, and the new board includes Holland, Warren Dale, Lorne Havisto, Terry Becker, and Laura Cherrille as continuing members. New members on the board of directors

are Kyle Patterson, who will be treasurer, Ray Boogaards, Anahi English, Avi Kay, Jonathan Willcocks, Alan Brown, and Farida Bhimji. Dale will be president-elect, taking over as president in 2014 when Holland finishes his term. Holland is pleased with the work the chamber has been doing, especially lobbying municipal governments to bring in a mobile business license. “I look forward to a new year... getting stuff done,” Holland said. The next big project Holland would like the chamber to tackle is bringing back the business vote, whereby anyone who has a business licence in Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows would be allowed to vote in municipal elections.

Haven bringing people together

No one has to be alone on Christmas Eve in Maple Ridge. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

F

or the 15th year, Christmas Haven is bringing people together to celebrate the warmth of the season. “The point is that you don’t have to be alone on Christmas Eve,” said Maple Ridge Councillor Corisa Bell of Christmas Haven. The event, always held Dec. 24, was designed to do exactly that: give people a place to go, celebrate, and feel connected to others on what could otherwise be a lonely night. Nearly 40 organizations and numerous volunteers made the event possible in 2011, and according to Bell, all of the volunteer roles are already filled for this year. “We have filled all the volunteer spots,” she said. “The community had been so amazing putting forth their time for this special evening.” At this time, the big need for Christmas Haven is cash donations and gifts for teens

TIMES files

While Santa is a popular guest at Christmas Haven, the point is to create a warm, welcoming space where anyone is welcome. or adults. Monetary gifts can be donated at either the Pitt Meadows or Maple Ridge recreation centres. And, a drop-off box for new, unwrapped gifts is set up at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre. Held at The ACT, Christmas Haven starts at 6 p.m. and includes a full turkey dinner, a gift from Santa, and is open to everyone, regardless of age, religious affiliation, or ethnicity. “We’ll have some different entertainment this year,” noted Bell, who listed a number of acts expected to keep toes tapping and faces smiling. The Maple Ridge Concert Band, Rory McRury, David Parent, and the Maple

Ridge Dance Circle will all be on stage throughout the evening. A new addition is the provision of transportation for seniors and those who would have challenges getting to the event, said Bell. “We’re pretty excited about it.” About 300 guests are expected for this year’s Christmas Eve event. For those thinking about attending, wondering about the transportation options, or wanting more information, the best resource is the Christmas Haven website at www.christmashaven.ca. “Everyone is welcome to come out,” Bell commented. “It’s a big celebration.”

Everything she makes, she usually does without the aid of a recipe. Despite her insanely busy schedule with this year’s hamper deadline loom-

RECIPE

Pie rekindles Christmas memories of spending time with loved ones

A

nne Gordon endeavours to keep some of her grandmother’s Kentucky traditions alive, including creating her award-winning chocolate meringue pie every Christmas. “My grandmother was known throughout southern Kentucky for her Sunday dinners,” explained The TIMES sales rep. “Family and friends would gather every Sunday after church, sit at her table and eat until they were stuffed. Although, I loved those Sunday dinners, my favourite memory from my childhood is Christmas at Granny Almas.” Her home was always overly decorated, extremely comfortable, and smelled of freshly baked pies, Gordon recalled. From homemade apple to pecan her Georgia Gordon is Anne’s six-year-old daughter Grandmother made – at least by her and her official taste tester, giving two thumbs up reckoning – the best pies ever. to her meringue pie. “She would bake several pies for the neighbourhood, her church, and everyone in between for Christmas.” There was always one pie in particular that everyone hoped to get for Christmas, and that was Granny Alma’s award-winning chocolate meringue pie. “Being her one and only taste tester, I had my fair share of slices and will never forget Granny Alma spending that time with me and teaching me how to make it,” Gordon said, now passing on taste testing to her six-year-old daughter Georgia. “Since [Granny’s] passing, I continue to make that chocolate meringue pie for special occasions, and although it’s not and never will be Granny Alma’s, it still takes me back to a time when Christmas was about just spending it with the people you love.” • Anne Gordon’s recipe for Chocolate meringue pie is on page B10…

Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir two minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir about 1 cup of the hot filling into the egg yolks. Return to saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Cook and stir two minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Pour hot filling into pie crust. For meringue, immediately beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until stiff and glossy. Spread evenly over hot filling, sealing meringue to pie crust. Bake at 350°F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. – Anne Gordon TIMES sales representative

Eat the meringues with the chocolate at the bottom. The hardened chocolate makes a kind of dish and you avoid getting meringue crumbs all over your clothes. It seems expensive to buy a whole box of cream of tartar for one pinch – but I have been using the same box since the late 1960s, mainly because I’ve never figured out what else I can use cream of tartar for. The quantity of icing sugar needs to be increased if the eggs are huge. Most fondue bowls

First I line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then I wipe the bowl I’ll use with a paper towel wetted with vinegar. It’s important to make sure no trace of fat is left on the bowl. Next I crack three eggs very carefully. If any speck of egg yolk gets into the whites, the meringues won’t thicken properly. I dump the egg whites in the bowl and add a pinch of cream of tartar. This stabilizes the egg whites. Then I beat the whites with an electric beater until they’re thick. At that point I add about a tablespoon of icing sugar

Melt enough chocolate chunks to brush over the meringues. Then sprinkle the chopped, grated, or ground pistachio nuts over the melted chocolate.

Ingredients: Parchment paper Tiny amount of vinegar 3 egg whites Pinch cream of tartar 1 cup icing sugar

My aim is to cook the meringues so they’re crisp all the way through, and I usually leave them in for two hours. People who like them soft in the middle or do tiny, teaspoon-size meringues won’t need to cook them as long. Topping 1 cup melted chocolate Pistachio nuts, chopped small or grated

and beat some more. Then, I add another tablespoon of sugar and beat for another minute. Keep this up until all the icing sugar is used. When the whipped egg whites stand in stiff peaks and a small spoonful dumped on the cookie sheet holds its shape, the mix is ready for the cookie sheet. I spoon out a tablespoon per time, and flatten the top of each. Some ovens are hotter than others. Mine is cooler than average. I set the temperature for 275ºF.

nne Marrison started making meringues when she kept chickens on a rural acreage and fed them mainly bran cooked with kitchen scraps from her big vegetable garden. “We let them roam the place in summer, fall, and winter, whenever the crops could handle chicken,” she said. “They ran fast enough to catch flies.” The family was poor, but had lots of eggs, and meringues made nice Christmas gifts for little money, she explained. “In those days, I always made meringues with a hand beater, and cooked them in an oil range, which also heated water for the bathroom. “One Christmas, we got a blow-back down the oil range chimney and a whole sheet of meringues that was out to cool turned black with soot,” Marrison recounted. “So did I.” “It was a tiny old house (650 square feet) built on tree trunks, and the back bedroom had been used to dry out mink skins.

He is a gentle, loving older guy.

SCOTLYN has been with us for a long time. She came to us from another shelter when she proved too shy to adopt out. She had been a stray before that. At our shelter, she huddled motionless in her bed for a long time and did not welcome attention. We’re pretty sure she’d been abused. It has taken 3 years but SCOTLYN has finally accepted humans and comes out for cuddles. She’s ready for a home of her own.

Salvation Army

Kettle donations drop Volunteers are needed for two-hour shifts to collect money for the Caring Place. by Maria Rantanen

Seniors help seniors

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Kettle donations are down by $9,000 so far this year compared to 2011. The Salvation Army’s Caring Place director Darrell Pilgrim is worried programs will have to be cut if they don’t get enough donations. “It’s the local programs... that the kettle money goes towards,” he said. While the shelter and cold, wet weather beds are funded by the government, the kettle donations keep local programs going. The money supports the daily meals they serve at noon at the Caring Place, which is accessed by 600 individuals per month, many of them seniors and families. Surveys have shown that 86 per cent of the people who come for a free lunch from Monday to Friday are from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, Pilgrim said. It also supports the school lunch program, Sonia’s Cradle that helps mothers of infants with formula and diapers and extras for their babies; it also helps to pay for 50 kids to go to camp in the summer. “It’s frustrating to think we might have to cut some of those services,” Pilgrim said. Last year, the Salvation Army kettles, which are manned by volunteers in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows brought in $90,000, and Pilgrim said they had set the same goal for this year. Volunteers are needed to ring the kettle bells for two-hour shifts in the community. “There’s still lots of ket-

The project was organized by the Seniors Helping Seniors group, with donations coming from Maple Ridge Secondary students, the Craft Ladies at the seniors centre, Save-On-Foods, and cards made by students at Eric Langton Elementary.

Librarian taking access message to the streets

People have many obstacles stopping them from going to the library, from literacy problems to fines.

Miller attends public events, like the clothing exchange, but she also visits places where there are people who might not normally use the library.

Fourthly, there’s a segment of the middle-class population who just buys books at retail stores and they think the library is for homeless people. Miller is trying to get the message out there that the library is much more than books – there are also audio books, DVDs, magazines, and CDs.

Smitty Miller, community development librarian, was at the Hive recently giving out free books and promoting public libraries.

They were picked up from school in the ladder truck, toured the City’s public works yard and City hall, then went for lunch at Boston Pizza. After lunch they returned to the fire hall for a tour of the apparatus, then sprayed some water and washed some trucks. Maple Ridge fire department’s Fire Chiefs for the Day were Abby Douglas from Albion Elementary and Brett Blower from James Cameron School. On Dec. 5 they had their picture taken right before they went to a meeting with Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. The four children’s names were drawn from entries submitted during fire prevention week.

A flash mob performed to a surprised crowd at a ringette game in Langley recently.

Flash mob rings in About 180 kids and parents from Lower Mainland Ringette teams, including players from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, performed a surprise flash mob during the National Ringette league’s game between Edmonton WAM! and Lower Mainland Ringette Thunder on Saturday. All the participants wore bright yellow T-shirts during the flash mob to Gangnam Style by PSY and Beyonce’s Put a Ring On It. “We came together in a united effort to showcase our love for the sport of ringette,” said Sharon Smit, a coach and referee in the Fraser Valley and the main organizer of Saturday’s event. “It was such a moving experience to see all these kids who normally play against each other come together in such a united and fun way.” “It was incredible, we were so surprised,” said national Lower Mainland Ringette League Thunder player Mel Thomas, who has played ringette for 21 years. “They showed so much energy and passion for the sport of ringette.” • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Marauders ready for new season

Two teams of local hoopsters had a successful weekend at a pair of tournaments. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Marauders Air Force coach Rich Goulet is expecting a successful season, even though the team didn’t make it to the finals of a tournament that they hosted on the weekend. Most of the Pitt Meadows Secondary senior basketball boys basketball team is new, Goulet explained. “We’ve got 12 guys that can come off the bench and play. Do we have a go-to guy? No, not yet,” he added. “The basketball team is competitive. We can give anyone a game. We hope to get even tougher as the season goes on,” he said. But Goulet said the team has already been plagued with illness and injury. “Being healthy is part of moving forward, particu-

larly to our 6’8” kid Jordan Rich, who had a groin injury and a concussion,” noted Goulet. There is one returning player from last season – guard Sebastien Marshall, who was awarded a scholarship from Telus. Telus gave each team that participated in the Telus Basketball Classic on the weekend a $1,000 scholarship. Marshall, 17, was selected from the Marauders because “he’s the most academic.” The Telus tournament featured teams from around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Marauders were bumped out of the tourney by Sardis by a mere six points. Kitsilano Secondary went on to beat White Rock Christian in the final. In other basketball news the junior Marauders Air Force team played in the Kwantlen Polytechnic University tournament on the weekend. “It was a good weekend for our juniors. They went triple overtime and came up short to Vancouver College 76-79,” said Goulet, who added that 15-yearold Graham Smith earned 30 points.

Sebastien Marshall is the sole returning player to Pitt Meadows’ senior team bench.
