Girl’s life ‘ruined’

A teen’s life changed for the worse after a man posted photos of her on Facebook. by Jennifer Saltman

Troy Landreville/TIMES

Ian Nesbitt is getting a head start on a career in construction. Three-year-old Ian brought his tools along with him on Thursday, Jan. 31 as he visited a job site at the corner of 223rd Street and 117th Avenue in Haney. A structure is being built at the site where two homes were destroyed by fire in late August. Ian’s grandpa Russ Franklin is the contractor for the project.

Haney reborn as heart of Ridge Town core incentive could be modelled in other parts of Maple Ridge. by Maria Rantanen

Maple Ridge is lucky to have a downtown area, something that not all surrounding communities can brag about, according to the mayor. When looking at neighbouring municipalities, Maple Ridge Mayor wondered “where is downtown Coquitlam,” or Ask us How to

Over the years as the malls at 203rd and 207th streets developed, it dragged some of business away from the downtown, Daykin pointed out, as people looked for new shopping experiences, to the detriment of the downtown stores. The incentive program continues throughout 2013, and Daykin called it a “huge success,” adding that he thinks it could be used as a model for revitalizing the Albion industrial area or west Maple Ridge.

A 21-year-old Maple Ridge man read an apology letter to his victim during his sentencing hearing in Port Coquitlam provincial court last week. “I did not realize the power (social media) held until it was used irresponsibly... Just a few clicks and it changed your life and how the world viewed the person that you are,” Warrington said about posting photos to Facebook of her engaged in sex acts at a party in Pitt Meadows two years ago. He called his actions “thoughtless and supremely immature” and said he will always regret what he did. In the early morning hours of Sept. 11, 2010, a 16-year-old boy took eight photos and a video of two people engaged in sex acts at an outdoor rave in Pitt Meadows. The complainant said the sex acts were not consensual. “Your actions actually ruined my life,” the 18year-old woman told Warrington in court, sobbing. “Dennis, you destroyed the person that I used to be.” Warrington was initially charged with publishing and distributing child pornography. However, in December he pleaded guilty to distributing obscene matter. The judge is scheduled to deliver her sentencing decision March 4.

The store shelves were emptying out and the fixtures were being sold off last week as Zellers closed its doors after 30 years at Haney Place Mall. Sheila Rach, who has worked at the Zellers cash till for more than 21 years, said that over the decades she has built up relationships with both her colleagues and customers. “A lady came in and thanked me for my years of service,” Rach said on Friday while reminiscing about her years with the retailer. The store will now undergo major renovations to become a Target, set to open in November. Rach liked to meet with her regular customers, and gave special attention to kids and people with developmental delays. One mother commented to her recently that “you’ve always been good to my kids.” Rach worked as a full-time employee at the Haney location of Zellers, and she felt there was a good rapport among the staff, between all ages of employees.

him or her to everyone. “We’re all friendly – you don’t make [new employees] feel like an outcast,” she said.

Cheryl Cloutier, who just received her 25-year pin from Zellers’ parent company HBC, said a lot of retired and former employees still stay in touch. “It’s like a family... I can honestly say we all love each other,” Cloutier said. Maple Ridge resident Ken McCuaig took advantage of some last-minute deals at Zellers, buying cans of Chunky soup, which were on sale for 69 cents a can, normally $1.49. McCuaig said he would miss Zellers, where he’d get his prescriptions filled and buy cat litter and clothing. “They had a lot of good stuff,” he said. Shopper Michelle Leppington was at Zellers on Friday with her two young daughters, also looking for last-minute deals. “I should have come sooner,” she said about shopping just three days before the closing. Target will be renovating the interior and exterior of the existing building. Recently, the retailer was approved to add almost 26,000 square feet, which would bring the total space to more than 110,000 square feet.

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The doors were closing at Zellers at Haney Place Mall on Monday, Feb. 11 – but the demise of one institution in Maple Ridge bolstered the fortunes of another. The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society was able to cash in on deals at the store to help low-income families during the Christmas season, and after a massive shop Wednesday, volunteers walked away with about $6,000 in savings. They were able to buy 30 skateboards and

lots of larger items they don’t always buy like Connex building sets as well as a lot of educational toys for babies. “It was a huge, huge savings,” said the Christmas hamper society’s co-chair Lorraine Bates. Volunteers with the Christmas hamper society usually start their shopping right after Christmas, looking for deals and liquidation items throughout the year. “Typically, this is the shopping we do but we don’t do it in mass,” Bates said, explaining that she had to get special authorization from her financial institution to pay for such a large quantity of items. At the shopping spree, the volunteers had two skids piled up and shrink-wrapped, and a cage full of items for needy kids. “There’s going to be some pretty happy kids,” Bates said.

Volunteers from the Christmas hamper society did a big shop on Wednesday.

Thieves cut through wall About $2,000 was taken during a Pitt Meadows heist. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Thieves gained entry to the Golden Ears Jewellers at Meadowvale Shopping Centre and made off with some loot. Sometime between Tuesday, Feb. 5 and morning of Wednesday, Feb. 6, thieves gained entry through two vacant stores, then cut a hole in the wall between an empty store and the jeweller, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Corp. Alanna Dunlop.

“The thieves would’ve had to take considerable time and effort to break in to the adjoining businesses, and police are hoping someone heard or saw something,” Dunlop explained. The suspects managed to steal approximately $2,000 worth of various gold jewelry items, including pendants and rings, as well as workman’s tools from one of the empty stores. Police have few leads to follow up at this time, and are asking for anyone with information regarding this crime to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251, or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477, to remain anonymous.

Our View

Little thought for pennies Those who persist in pining for the penny need to put it all in perspective. It’s simply not worth the bother. The penny’s worth has diminished so dramatically over the years, it’s practically worthless by historic measures. If you (or more likely, your grandfather or great grandfather) had put a penny in a drawer in 1914 and you took it out today, it would now buy one 20th of what it would have bought had it been spent, instead being squirrelled away. (That’s of course, discounting the interest of collectors who would undoubtedly pay you a fair penny for that 1914 penny, especially if it’s in good condition and not too badly nicked or worn – a perfect penny of that date could net you nearly $100.) In other words, even that dime in your pocket today is worth about a half what a penny was worth at the start of the First World War. Email with Today’s dollar has the real-time value of a 1914 nickel. Indeed, the penny has become even less than worthless. For some time now, the Royal Canadian Mint has pointed out, it has been costing about 1.6 cents to mint a penny. That means every 50-cent roll of pennies has been costing taxpayers 30 cents more than they’re worth to put into circulation. So let’s no longer pine for the penny, shall we? It’s gotten long past its best-before date. In fact, perhaps it’s time to nix the nickel, too. Just move the decimal over one place, and the dime can be our new penny – still worth only half what a perfectly sensible and useful penny was only a handful of decades ago. The loonie consequently becomes the new dime, and the ten-spot could be minted as a new silver dollar (actually, more likely made of nickel or some other, cheaper composite metal). Our money would once again be worth every penny. – B.G.

Maple Ridge

Albion homes losing value

Dear Editor, People bought homes in Albion with the understanding that schools were available within walking distance. Albion Elementary is now over capacity, and children moving in, who will live within walking distance, will be bused to other schools. With no prospect of a new school in the near future, home prices are suffering, and it is now difficult to get proper market value for a home in the Albion area. The same is now happening in Silver Valley, where a site set aside for a school, promised in official legislation, is being given up and rezoned for residential housing. This rezoning will result in even more children being bused elsewhere. The only school in the immediate area is already at 108 per cent capacity. Maple Ridge council blames the school board, and the school board blames the province. We have elected government officials to represent us, and we need them to accept responsibility, be accountable, and act in our best interest. I urge council to delay the rezoning of the Silver Valley (potential school site) property until the school board has completed its study to determine the best site for a school in Silver Valley. I believe this is the best option for our entire community. Citizens can attend the council meeting at City Hall, 11995 Haney Place, at 7 p.m. tonight (Feb. 12). If this issue is important to you, please attend and speak up before it’s too late. Sean Orcutt, Maple Ridge

class size and composition [Check out the offer, Feb. 5 Just Saying, TIMES].” In fact, the government’s proposal specifically states that public school teachers and their employers will not be able to bargain class size and composition. The proposal suggests a parallel discussion take place outside of collective bargaining. Language about class size and composition, stripped from collective agreements across the province in 2002, have been found unconstitutional, but were replaced by identical language in Bill 22. Mr. Robson also incorrectly implies that teachers are not “sitting down and logically discussing problems.” Representatives of the BCTF and BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) had been engaged in discussions since December, successfully finalized a framework to guide the next round of collective bargaining the same week Premier Clark made her baffling announcement.

Legislative changes to protect navigation Dear Editor, I was unable to speak to the reporter on the day she contacted my office, and I’m afraid that, as a result, inaccurate information from my NDP colleague was contained in your article [Fisheries changes spawn community interest, Jan. 10, TIMES]. I feel that a very one-sided and misguided discussion was had on the changes made through Bills C-38 and C-45, which improved several pieces of legislation, including the Navigable Waters Protection Act and the Fisheries Act. Provincial and municipal leaders have

told the federal government for years that the Navigable Waters Protection Act – a law designed in 1882 to ensure that bridges would not block shipping – vastly oversteps its intended purpose. The government is fixing this outdated law to reflect its historic intent: to protect navigation.

Police happenings

Mounties search for Lougheed hit-and-run driver A road worker was injured when he was struck by a passing car. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

The worst nightmare came true for a road maintenance person who was hit by a passing car. The worker was struck by a speeding car in the 24100 block of Lougheed Highway and

received injuries to his back and leg, according Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt. Dale Somerville. “The potential for this incident to be worse was certainly there. The employee received injuries to his back and leg, but these are not life threatening,” he said. Police said that at about 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, the road maintenance crew spotted a speeding vehicle coming towards them. The workers ran towards the middle of the four-lane highway

to avoid the vehicle, but the car also altered its course towards the middle of the road. The car first struck a work truck before striking the worker and then it stopped for a moment. The car then sped off towards Mission. “The passenger side mirror was torn off when it came into contact with our victim, and police have that mirror. Through that we have identified this vehicle as a 2006 to 2012 Nissan Altima,” said Somerville.

CONGRATULATIONS JULIE

They did not get a licence plate number. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information in regards to this crime is asked to contact RCMP at 604-463-6251.

Story ends well

A call about two missing children resulted in a happy ending. A mother of two preschool-aged children called police around 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, to ask the police to help her find her kids who had wandered off.

“The two children had managed to open an exterior door of their home and walk away. The children were located a short distance away by the attending police officers soon after police had arrived,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Corp. Alanna Dunlop. The pair were not injured, and it was reported that they were happy to get a ride back home. “This case has a happy ending, including a relieved mother,” Dunlop said.

Flames snuffed out in Kodiaks’ den Ridge Meadows flickered against Aldergrove, but it appears as though the rivalry is starting to heat up. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

You would have had to recruit a few brave souls from search and rescue to pull the Ridge Meadows Flames out of the hole they dug themselves into last Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena.
