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!...........

A couple who renovated a four-storey historic home in Hammond will receive a heritage award for their efforts at today’s (Tuesday’s) council meeting. The house was built in 1927 by the second doctor in Maple Ridge, and the first one in Hammond, Dr. Laurence Broe. When Becky Robinson and Gary McNeal took possession of the house in 2008, it had a definite 1970s flavour to it, with colourful flowers painted on the kitchen walls and shag carpeting throughout the house. The previous owner – only the third owner of the house – had put his own eccentric stamp on the house. There were five pianos and a pipe organ in one room of the house when the couple came to view it. The attic had been turned into a religious shrine, and the windows were covered in anticipation of some cataclysmic event. The massive brick chimney was painted over and had to be sandblasted to return it to its original state. The fir floors were restored after the shag carpet was removed, and an ensuite bathroom was added upstairs. The couple added older elements to the house, including a clawfoot bathtub and period heaters. Needless to say, the religious shrine was removed. The house, which is on four floors, contained some surprises, including a secret passage between floors. Robinson and McNeal bought the house in August 2008 and it took them till December to fully renovate it, which included scraping off up to seven layers of wallpapers, refinishing the floors, and adding 5,000 linear feet of crown mouldings. Robinson said she was “very, very excited” when she heard she was getting the awards, “and really proud of myself.” Robinson and McNeal have renovated about 10 heritage homes over the years. The house is on the District of Maple

Becky Robinson spent countless hours restoring a home on Dartford Street back to its former glory. Ridge’s heritage inventory, and is a “very significant” building given the style of the home, said Lisa Zosiak, a planner with the District of Maple Ridge. “It was quite a prosperous house for that time,” she said, adding that the original

owner, Dr. Broe, was a significant person in Hammond. “[The house] tells a story of what was happening in Hammond in that time.” The stucco on the exterior of the home is a later addition, Zosiak explained, but otherwise the house is substantially intact.

Pillowcase bandit foiled in fast food heist

Two Ridge restaurants were robbed this weekend. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Two eateries were targeted by thieves this weekend – one thief was successful, the other was not.

The first heist was on Friday about 9 p.m. at the Subway restaurant in the 22800 block of Lougheed Highway where the bandit made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. The suspect was described as Caucasian, about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black ski mask, a black

sweater, and blue jeans. He may be in his 20s a perhaps fled in a white Honda Civic, said Dunlop. The second robbery attempt was foiled. Just after 9 p.m. on Saturday, police were called to the Domino’s Pizza in the 22500 block of Lougheed Highway. Domino’s staff refused to hand over any money – despite the thief brandishing an item that

Dunlop said could have been a weapon. The would-be thief left in a green minivan heading west. He was described as Caucasian, 5 ft. 10 in., with a thin build, a dark-coloured hoodie, blue jeans. He wore a green pillowcase over his head, which was recovered at the scene. Anyone with information about these crimes can call the local RCMP at 604-463-6251.

That campaign paid dividends inside the newspaper industry, earning The TIMES a ranking as 40 one of the top three in B.C. for community service by the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association. There were more than 2,000 entries in the provincial newspaper awards known as the Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards.

Youth get taste of para-military training Students get a week of strict academic and physical education at a police camp. by Maria Rantanen

Students interested in law enforcement can get a small taste of what it’s like to go through the 24-week RCMP training by attending the RCMP Youth Academy in mid March.

Our View

Satisfaction best choice Every business is a team effort. Naturally, teamwork between employees and management is essential in any successful business – at least, that’s the case if the goal is to maintain business success over an extended period. But to be truly successful – to truly develop a business’s potential consistently, with a view to a long and prosperous future – the customers have to be a part of the team roster. And those customers need to feel welcome in the team lineup, to feel that they are valued contributors to the business’s success. The business that Scan this operates on the basis page with that its consumers are in the store, or at the salon, or calling the tradesman just to buy a product or a service – just to spend money – isn’t properly developing its potential for success. A truly successful business develops a relationship with its customers. A truly successful business knows that the key to future success lies in the too-often-forgotten concept of “customer satisfaction,” a tenuous commodity that isn’t just about having the right widget stocked on your shelves, or cutting hair to the right length, or eventually getting around to fixing a leaky pipe in the basement. Customer satisfaction goes beyond “doing the job right” and includes making your customer feel good about the job that’s been done – so good that he or she will regale friends and acquaintances with your business’s pleasant and efficient service. So good, in fact, that he or she will automatically think of your business when filling out a TIMES Readers’ Choice ballot. Congratulations to all the businesses that have proven their ability to satisfy. – B.G.

Thank you for making Kay’s day extra special. It’s always nice to see staff in care facilities that take the time to make sure that the residents are truly thought of.

Federal politics

Announcement timing was petty

Dear Editor, Apparently, spring begins sometime in February in Vancouver, as stated by Conservative MP Wai Young, and on March 20 everywhere else in Canada. That was her answer to the early closure of the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station. She said it should not have been a surprise, even though no one was told about it. Of course, it wasn’t timed to happen the day the B.C. budget was coming down so no one would be watching. Right? This is more of the same from our petty and vindictive prime minister who consistently announces things while out of the country or late on Friday nights, to keep the fallout to a minimum. The Conservatives spend multi-millions on their pathetic TV

Provincial politics

Balance paramount

Dear Editor, I find it interesting that Mr. Adrian Dix and the NDP oppose balancing the budget, and even went as far as to say they might get around to balancing the budget in four or five years. So there is the deciding factor for me. A government in waiting that will continue to pile on debt for my kids to pay off, or one that will do whatever it can to reach a balanced budget to ensure my kids have less debt and help ensure a triple-A credit rating to reduce interest payments, which will help lower taxes as a result. As much as I was toying and tinkering with the NDP, I have decided to vote for responsible government. Sandra Robinson, Maple Ridge

Response

Cartoon in poor taste

Dear Editor, Although I enjoy The TIMES, I was very disappointed in the cartoon mocking the Pope [Feb. 19 Opinion, TIMES]. I do not practise the Catholic religion, but have great respect for such a great man who devoted his entire life for others. In ill health and well into his 80s, too feeble to carry the heavy load, he realized it was time to pass the responsibilities to someone else. I’m sure most of us will not see the humour in this cartoon Ernie Streifel, Maple Ridge For more letters to the editor visit... www.mrtimes.com – Click on Opinion.

In the summer of 2002, Lucy, a small quarter horse, was up for auction and on the verge of being slaughtered for meat. At her side was Hope, her young foal born with severely bent legs. The meat man made the first bid – $500 for both – but Julie Macmillan from J&M Acres (www.jmacresrescue.com) horse rescue in Maple Ridge outbid him and took the mom and crippled baby. A Maple Ridge family agreed to foster the two and keep Hope, and North Vancouver resident Kriss Pless planned to adopt Lucy. There was the possibility that Hope would have to be put down, but since she was not in pain, Macmillan approached various vets till she found one who would give Hope a chance. The operations would cost thousands, and there was no guarantee of success. Maple Ridge kindergarten kids heard about Hope’s plight in the local newspaper and started fundraising to help pay for the operations. “I had adopted Lucy, but I would go out there,” Pless said. “So the children would come and visit the horses, and feed them cookies.” More fundraising was done, and after several surgeries, Hope’s legs were set straight, and she is now able to run like any other horse. Meanwhile, Lucy had her own adjustments to make. Once Hope was weaned off her mother, Pless took Lucy in. As a breeding mare, she hadn’t really been handled by people before. “She was pretty wild when I brought her here,” said Pless. “She just didn’t really get the captive life, because she had been out in hundreds of acres, and then brought into the city. We had to do training and say what was acceptable and what wasn’t. Now, we go into parades, we chase some cows, we do all kinds of fun stuff. She adapted beautifully.” Pless takes Lucy, now 17 years old, to two North Vancouver schools twice a year to educate children about horses and horse slaughter and to fundraise for more

rescues. Lucy does English and western riding demos, and children line up to pet her afterwards. “(Lucy) dips her head down for each kid to touch her. She’s just really sweet,” Pless said. “She’s somebody’s throwaway, and look what she did for the kids.” Lucy seems to have a soft spot for children and is well natured when the association holds open-house events. “This little mare, you can do everything to. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She just loves all the attention you can give her. She doesn’t say yes or no to anybody. She just really likes people,” said Pless. “She packs everybody around. She’s so great that way. To think that she almost went in a can is crazy.” Hope still resides with the same family in Maple Ridge and now rides and jumps as a “perfectly healthy wonderful horse,” according to Pless. And after a decade apart, Lucy and Hope were recently reunited. Pless wasn’t sure if they recognized each other. “They had a little sniff at each other,” she said. Having a horse is a “real labour of love,” according to Pless. “This little mare is so special to me,” she said. “(Horses) are just so forgiving. Look at what they let us do to them. We ride on them and constantly train them. They’re just so sweet that way.”

More than 100 people took part, according to Darrell Pilgrim, director of The Caring Place. “It looks like we are going to bring in about $15,000,” Pilgrim said about the fundraising efforts. “We are extremely happy with that,” he added.

PINK SHIRT DAY Stand Up to February 27th BULLYING Education

Pink-clad students take stand against bullying

Cyber school students get extra lessons in online activities. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A

ctivities will take place throughout Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Wednesday to help kids understand the seriousness of bullying. In the meantime, the local board of education will look at a policy on Wednesday developed for the school district to make schools safe and caring. But for the students at Yennadon Elementary’s cyber school, learning about Internet safety and bullying is paramount because they are constantly connected to the Internet. The three taglines for the cyber classes, led by Jessica Wilson and Dale

all those tools.” The students recently wrote a fictional piece called How social media ruined my life, and Wilson was amazed at the students’ writing. It was a topic they could relate to personally because they are so connected online. “I was blown away by some of the writing,”

Wilson said. Antibullying activities have been happening throughout the school district for several years, and Wilson said she thinks “for our kids, it is making a difference” although she acknowledged there is still bullying going on among youth. A policy, which has been

developed through the past year, called “Safe, caring and healthy schools” will be before the Maple RidgePitt Meadows school board Wednesday for consideration. The policy states that to be safe, caring, and socially responsibly, schools must be free of bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, threat,

intimidation, violence, verbal, physical and sexual abuse, discrimination, theft, and vandalism. The policy continues that schools will not tolerate intoxication or banned substances, weapons and explosives, and intruders or trespassers. The policy suggests that the board recognizes students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, or questioning as facing “a unique set of challenges” within schools and communities including being targets for discriminatory behaviours.”

Anxiety can prove debilitating But what happens when the fears don’t subside? Young children may not have the ability to describe their feelings, or the skills to cope with them.

Junior B hockey

Loss puts Flames teetering on brink of elimination

Aldergrove has taken over the series with three straight victories. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

After opening the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs with a promising 4-3 double overtime win over the Aldergrove Kodiaks, the Ridge Meadows Flames are flickering. Their upset victory on Feb. 18 has been followed by three consecutive losses to the Kodiaks, who now lead the best-of-seven quarter-final series three games to one. Saturday at Planet Ice Maple Ridge, the Kodiaks built a 5-0 first-period lead, then scored the only three goals of the third frame in a lopsided 9-2 win over the Flames. Kodiaks assistant coach Rick Harkins said the Flames had been double-shifting their top two lines, and with back-to-back games, he knew that would take a toll against a well-conditioned Aldergrove club. “We came out strong in that game, got a couple [of goals] early and just built off that,” Harkins added. The Kodiaks’ powerplay made the Flames pay. Four of their five goals during the opening period came with the man advantage.

Overall, Aldergrove scored on five of 10 powerplay opportunities. “We’re keeping it in perspective,” Flames coach Jamie Fiset said. “When they get four goals all in the first period and all on the powerplay… we dug ourselves that kind of a hole that’s hard to recover from. It was one of those nights where we had no bounces and everything seemed to go wrong.” The Flames will look to stave off elimination Wednesday (Feb. 27) at Aldergrove Arena. Opening puck drop is 7:15 p.m. “I think we’ll be fine on Wednesday,” Fiset said. “When you look at the first three games, game one if you look at the shots on goal [totals], it’s misleading. Game two, we were happy with our performance. Game three – we should have won that game. We outshot them, we outplayed them, we hit posts, we had pucks laying in the crease, but we just couldn’t put it in the net. In game four, we took the first five penalties and it took us out of the game. It was hard to recover.” The most recent Kodiaks’ win was their most emphatic. Daniel Higgs with two, Spencer McHaffie, Ryan Veillet, and MacLean Hewitt staked Aldergrove to a 5-0 advantage after 20 minutes of play. The second period was the lone bright spot for the Flames, who outshot the visitors 12-6 and had

a 2-1 edge in goals with a pair of markers from Matthew Bissett. Roshen Jaswal scored for the Kodiaks during the middle frame. “They came back and took it to us in the second period and you could see our game changed a little bit,” Harkins said. “We talked to them in the room about it [between periods] and they got back into it in the third.” Aldergrove retook momentum in the final frame with the only three goals of the frame. Veillet, with his second of the night, Brandon Dolby, and

Jackson Waniek rounded out the game’s scoring. Scott McHaffie collected four assists for the Kodiaks, while his teammate Joshua Cronin had three helpers. Kodiaks 2, Flames 1 In a game dominated by defence, the visiting Kodiaks took a 2-0 lead into the third frame and held on for the victory Friday at Planet Ice. After being badly outshot the first two games, the Flames turned the tables, firing 26 shots on goal to the Kodiaks’ 16.

But the Kodiaks scored on two of their shots, off the sticks of Veillet in the first period and Kenny Prato in the middle frame. Adam Bartsch scored the Flames’ lone goal with 7:48 remaining, but that was as close as the visitors would come. Kodiaks 4, Flames 2 The Kodiaks were rewarded for the barrage of pucks they directed at Flames’ goaltender Wesley McLeod, as they evened the series at a game apiece last Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena. Aldergrove outshot Ridge Meadows 23-9 in the first period and managed to get three shots past McLeod to take a 3-0 into the first intermission. Scott McHaffie, Adam Callegari, and Prato scored for the home team during the opening 20 minutes of action. The Flames had a better second period and narrowed the margin to two goals after Travis Oddy scored to make it 3-1. It took all of 32 seconds after the puck was dropped to start the third period for the Kodiaks to restore their three-goal lead, as Veillet scored on a powerplay to give Aldergrove a 4-1 lead. The Flames’ Connor Redmond found the net with 9:35 remaining in regulation to round out the night’s scoring. Overall, the Kodiaks outshot the Flames 53-26. McHaffie was named first start of the game after scoring once and adding one assist.

The Triton Two Tower is a remarkable, award winning high performance loudspeaker with a built- in powered subwoofer. It is designed for the superb performance in both high quality two channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music system. Its sleek, elegantly curved and tapered design is important from both a styling and a performance perspective. It has a gorgeous piano black finish and its compelling cutting-edge silhouette speaks for itself. Additionally, the narrow front baffle contributes significantly to Triton’s exceptional 3D imaging capability which is especially important when used in 3D home theaters.

I was recommended Haney Automotive by a friend a while back and decided to try them out when the water pump blew on my car. They were professional, affordable, and fixed my car in no time. Above all, it was nice to see an independent family run business with a friendly atmosphere in this day and age of chain stores. A+ all around and I don’t think I’ll ever take a car anywhere else!!

GM Restaurant owners Joginder and Swarnjit Shah were humbled to again be picked as the best Indian restaurant in town through this year’s TIMES Readers’ Choice awards. They celebrated the good news with Susan Krautter (left) and her husband Ron Driedger (right), a Mission couple that regularly visits this 19-year-old restaurant at 207th Street and Lougheed Highway. It’s the customers and 27 staff who make the restaurant and catering business so successful, the Shahs explained.
