Retired mailman recalls stories, friendships BY GRAEME WOOD Special to the News

Retired letter carrier Ken Brodie forged many relationships delivering mail in his 20 years strolling through Richmond neighbourhoods. But it’s stories of friendships like his that will soon draw to a close all across the country after Canada Post announced last week that it will eliminate door-to-door mail service to single-detached homes within the next five years. Those with the current door-to-door service will soon have to access their mail at a nearby community mailbox. Parcels will also be placed in locked boxes or stored at a local mail office. Brodie believes the changes will affect many daily relationships between residents and carriers, especially amongst the elderly. “Canada Post has to make changes, I suppose, and they’re out there to make money like everyone else. “Delivering mail was just a more personal thing and a lot of people looked forward to getting the mail.…The important thing for me is with elderly people. A lot of them feel lonely and to me the letter carrier was a big part of their daily life,” said Brodie. The 71-year-old worked at Canada Post for 35 years. He worked in Richmond from 1979 to 1999 and forged many friendships along the way. “Most of the time the carrier would just talk to the residents. Sometimes we would just sit there and talk, not only about post office stuff or the weather but about how their lives

It was amazing how much they would tell you and what’s going on,” he said. One of the best friendships he made was with Rina Miller, now 85, who used to live at the end of No. 4 Road near Finn Slough. “I don’t like it. We’re losing something socially. We used to know everybody, especial-

ly the mailman,” said Miller of the upcoming postal changes. Miller actually had a community mailbox, but she and her husband met Brodie when he dropped off parcels that wouldn’t fit in the box. Technically, Brodie was supposed to take see New houses page 4

Sarah Banno submitted the above photo with the comment, “It will be a very sad day when we no longer get to greet our postal carrier on the street. ”

In general, Canadians are not in favour of service changes at Canada Post that would see home delivery phased out in urban areas. A new Angus Reid Global public opinion poll indicates 58 per cent of Canadians surveyed do not support the changes, while 38 per cent favour the end of door-to-door service in urban areas. Unsurprisingly, those who still receive door-to-door mail delivery are most opposed to an end to this service (73 per

cent), followed by apartment and condominium dwellers who pick up mail from their lobby (62 per cent). However, a clear majority of surFor veyed Canadians full report who already pick up mail from a community mailbox in their neighbourhood support the changes (59 per cent). A more focused look at the data shows Canadians generally fall into three main categories: those who believe Canada Post provides an essential service (48 per cent

of the sample), those who are cautiously concerned about the changes (35 per cent of the sample) and those who are unaffected and unconcerned about the changes (17 per cent of the sample). The segments were discovered by examining patterns of how people answered the survey questions, using a statistical technique called cluster analysis. When scrutinized along past voting lines, support for the changes appears highest among respondents who voted see Divided page 4

But it saved them a trip to pick it up,” he said. As time passed Brodie and his wife became friends with the Millers and the four would frequently meet for tea. Today, they still enjoy

talking about Finn Slough and the nearby fishermen who came and went over the years, as well as the packages of honeycomb and wool sweaters Miller received from family back in Scotland. “I could smell the honey and knew what she was getting,” Brodie laughed. The long-time Richmond resident loves

animals and to this day, in non-stereotypical fashion for a letter carrier, takes care of dogs in his spare time for people who go out of town or work long hours. But what letter carrier doesn’t have a few good dog stories. Brodie recalls being bitten by a dog just three times in his career. One of those times was when he

walked up next to a baby stroller on a porch, which Brodie says may have set the dog off. There was also the German Shepherd, a retired police dog, that constantly barked at him over the years only for Brodie to realize it was the clanging of his keys that put the dog into a frenzy. Dogs aside, Brodie also recalls constantly being scratched by cats when he would put his hands through the door slots. Then there were the hornets. “To get next door at one house I would go through this hedge as a short cut. Well, one day there was a hornet’s nest and oh gosh,” chuckled Brodie.

Another challenge that letter carriers will no longer face is trekking through snow from house to house. “We had some really bad winters. Especially if you got into an older neighbourhood where homes had a dozen stairs or so. And if they were newly painted stairs, oh boy, you would be on your head. Yes, there is that rain, sleet and snow saying, but the post office had a fine line. If it was a safety hazard you were allowed to bring mail back,” said Brodie. There are about 25,000

single-detached houses in Richmond. Some newer subdivisions, such as Terra Nova, already have community mailboxes. In an email to the

“Delivering mail was just a more personal thing...” — Ken Brodie

Divided: Along political lines taste about as good as the glue on the back of a stamp,” said Shachi Kurl, vice-president of Angus Reid Global. “But the level of distaste depends on which party they have stuck with politically in the past. These changes appear to give Prime Minister Stephen Harper less trouble with his base.” Sachi Kurl The full report can be viewed at www.angusreidglobal.com.

News Richmondites mull over liquor laws BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Grant Bryan doesn’t like disappointing customers with young families showing up at O’Hare’s Gastropub in Steveston. And according to a provincial government announcement this week he may not have to in the future as Premier Christy Clark pledged her government’s support to allow children to accompany their parents into bars and legions. “Every week we turn away people with children. Every week,” Bryan said. “I’m from the U.K. I’ve grown up going to the pub for Sunday lunch. It was what you did as a family. And in the U.K., the pub is a cornerstone of the community. And neighbourhood pubs are exactly that in Richmond. They are the cornerstone, in my opinion.” The policy change is part of a second raft of recommendations contained in the government’s Liquor Policy Review conducted by Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap. In addition to permitting families in bars, Clark announced her government’s support for a happy hour that would set a minimum price for drinks over a certain time period. “These changes are about updating antiquated licensing rules to reflect what British Columbians actually want, while continuing to protect public safety,” Clark said in a press release. “Families should be able to dine together in their neighbourhood pub. Consumers should be free to order whatever they want in a restaurant. These are exactly the kind of common-sense changes to B.C.’s liquor laws we promised to make — and

we’re keeping that promise.” The idea of allowing families to access pubs has not seemed to be a topic of concern for those clients of Richmond Family Place, said the organization’s executive director, Kim Winchell. “If anything, they have expressed confusion over some (pubs) when they go for breakfast or something, and it’s a pub offering the breakfast and they don’t allow the children in,” she said. Back at O’Hare’s, the issue over family access, while welcomed, does have its limits. “Do I want kids in the pub at midnight? No,” Bryan said. “I think with controlled times, it can add a lot of value to the whole (pub) experience. “As a neighbourhood pub, it’s about being inclusive and kids are part of the community,” Bryan added. “For us, if done well, it’s really good news. We have lots of young families in the area that would love to come to the pub.” Also looking forward to having families come into her pub is Genesse Langdon, manager of the Buck and Ear in Steveston. During the tourist-heavy summer months, Langdon said she regularly turns away three to four families a day. Most of them are from outside the country where their liquor laws are more liberal, Langdon said. Reaction to the coming changes has been mixed among the pub’s regulars. Langdon said some of her patrons, mainly those in the older age bracket, say that pubs are not the place for children to be. For full story go to www.richmond-news.com

Report won’t stop fighting

E

xpect the debate, the argument, the anger, and the acrimony — especially the acrimony — that resulted in the National Energy Board’s (NEB) report on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal to continue well into the new year (and probably a few new years beyond that). Those who put economy over the environment applaud any NEB recommendations that lean towards approval of a project that has the potential to inject billions of dollars into Canada’s (and principally Alberta’s) economy. They exult in the potential for job creation and the diversification of a substantial part of Canada’s energy export capacity beyond the United States and directly into Asia. They are not swayed by public outrage or pronouncements by environmentalists, local governments, and First Nations that any progress on the pipeline, no matter what the NEB says, will be blocked. Those who put environment above economy wanted recommendations that support their concerns about pouring millions of gallons of liquefied bitumen through pipes spanning pristine rivers in remote valleys, into mega-tankers that will subsequently have to navigate some of the most difficult waters off B.C.’s generally treacherous coast. They aren’t swayed by the near certainty that the federal government will step in and overrule a “negative” NEB report. Somewhere in between lie the vast majority — people who welcome the economic activity, as long as the NEB assures us the oil can flow with minimal risk to our best natural assets.

CHOICE WORDS

Happy holidays from trustees The Editor, The public education system in B.C. is blessed with exceptionally dedicated staff — in every school and district office in our vast province. We share the honour of work that has great purpose — helping our students and youth. Inspiring our collective work is the hope of building a strong, equitable public education system where our students thrive and realize their dreams. The magic of the holiday season inspires reflection and renews hope. As we look back on the many accomplishments in public education in 2013, I hope that everyone feels tremendously proud of our investment in children and our province’s future. I hope we remain inspired to continue to make students a priority; they deserve the best that we can provide them. As president of the BC School Trustees Association, I am very grateful. I am grateful for exceptional staff — from classroom teachers to support staff to district leaders. I am grateful that publicly-elected trustees in this province give each community a voice in local education decision-making. Public education belongs to all of us. Happy holiday wishes to you. Teresa Rezansoff President BC School Trustees Association

Predictions and fallacies of the year As the year draws to a close, it’s time to take stock of things I’ve put in this column for the last 52 weeks. Things like predictions and forecasts — you know, activities that can make me look like a genius or fool! It can be challenging to go out on a limb fairly regularly in such a public way, and open myself to humiliation and contempt, or deepseated admiration (this, trust me, rarely occurs). In any event, let’s look back at some of my track record: Wrong: the NDP would win the spring provincial election. Might as well get this major gaffe out of the way right at the start. I should have stuck to my original take on the election result, made shortly after both parties’ leadership contests. At a business conference, I held up a newspaper photo of a beaming Christy Clark and one of an uncomfortable looking Adrian Dix, and boldly predicted the smiling, confident Clark would wipe the floor with Dix. Then those darn polls started to appear..... Right: the Green Party would elect an MLA during the election. Well, at least I got something right about that contest. Andrew Weaver won, as I expected, in Oak Bay-Gordon Head. Driving around that riding a week before election day I noted how I had never seen more campaign signs for a single candidate on peoples’ lawns. Boulevards are public spac-

es, but private lawns? Those are earned, dedicated votes. Wrong: the so-called “ethnic memo” scandal would hurt the B.C. Liberals in the election. The scheme that saw tax dollars mixed up with doing blatant partisan work for the B.C. Liberal Party mattered not a whit with voters. That suggests voters may hold the cynical view that all political parties are guilty of such things and end up not giving any party an advantage on the issue (this may mean the Senate expense scandal seemingly dogging the Harper government may not be a major factor that determines the outcome of the next federal election). In any event, the B.C. Liberals ended up doing much better than the NDP when it came to winning support of the ethnic community vote in the election. Right: B.C. Hydro rates would increase significantly. Anyone with basic knowledge of the energy issue could see the inevitability of this. But with an election hovering over the politicians for a lengthy time, none of them (from either major party) wanted to admit that or even talk about such a thing. But the day of reckoning has come, and rates

are indeed going up. Wrong: it was going to be impossible for the provincial government to balance its budget, as tabled back in February. I may be a tad premature here, as the final numbers won’t be known for a few months yet. But it appears that half-way through the year, Finance Minister Mike de Jong may indeed balance the books, albeit on the proverbial razor’s edge. He’s been able to hold the line on spending, and there may be enough of a built-in cushion (called the “forecast allowance”) to offset any significant decline in revenue. Right: the smart-meter protest was a lot of noise about nothing. It turns out that 99 per cent of B.C. Hydro customers have taken the smart meters, while the rest — a mixture, it seems, of the tinfoil-hat crowd and chem-trail chasers — have opted to pay more than $400 to keep the old analog meters. Bill Vander Zalm is one of their champions, but he failed to find anywhere near the success he had fighting the HST. And now a new year is about to begin and more issues will emerge that I’ll try to navigate, likely with mixed success. As always, it will be a busy year and I look forward trying to read the tea leaves, hopefully with much success. At least there is no provincial election on the horizon! Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Letters

Chamber has been clear on Enbridge stance The Editor, Re: “Chamber of Commerce finds its voice,” Column, Dec. 18. The following two quotes from Keith Baldrey’s editorial cry out for a rebuttal. The first one: “After fumbling the ball during the HST debacle and remaining virtually silent during the Enbridge pipeline debate, the B.C. business community is showing signs it intends to be more organized and vocal when it comes to other controversial economic developments.” When John Winter of the BC Chamber of Commerce is not silent about the purported benefits of the proposed

Enbridge Northern Gateway pipelines project, he sounds like he is reciting from the Enbridge script (or “playbook” as Keith put it) they use during public consultation meetings and in their advertisements. Here are a couple excerpts of what Winter has said when stating support for Northern Gateway, taken from the BC Chamber website: “With the potential to generate thousands of construction jobs and a $270 billion increase to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product over 30 years...” and “B.C. alone seeks to benefit from about 3,000 jobs during construction and about 560 long-term

jobs.” Here is what Enbridge Northern Gateway says: Their Fort St. James Caledonia Courier May and September 2012 newspaper advertisements, which I am certain were published broadly throughout B.C., read: “the Northern Gateway Project will increase Canada’s Gross Domestic Product by at least $270 billion over 30 years.” Janet Holder, vicepresident Western Access for Enbridge Northern Gateway stated in a July 2013 meeting with the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce, “the $6.6 billion project would create

3,000 construction jobs and another 560 permanent, high-paying jobs once the pipeline is up and running,” and that information was restated in their October 2013 advertising pamphlet delivered to homes throughout B.C. The second quote from Baldrey: “Lately, Enbridge has done a better job of articulating its position and a couple of recent polls indicate opposition to the project has diminished considerably.” Enbridge Northern Gateway is, in my opinion, not doing a better job, they are doing the same job of keeping the truth from the chamber and the public.

As an intervener in the Joint Review Panel hearings, I questioned Enbridge Northern Gateway witnesses about their employment and economic benefits. In their sworn testimony, they described them as presumptions, assumptions, said the model they used had inaccuracies in it. They said they tweaked the model to get the benefit numbers they wanted; and it was those numbers they have provided to the public and the chamber. During questioning in March of this year, I asked Holder why they weren’t telling the public what their witnesses told the

The Editor, Canada’s concept of a mosaic makes Christmas even more meaningful. As home to more than 200 diverse ethnic communities, Canada is a great model of intercultural harmony, inclusiveness and pluralism. As a reflection of this country’s ethnic/cultural diversity, major festivals of various ethnic communities are now celebrated with a great deal of enthusiasm. Christmas has a very special meaning especially to children regardless of their heritage. As soon as the Christmas tree is up, children start asking as to when Santa Claus will arrive. They wait for today with a great deal of anticipation. One can hardly wait to see the looks on their faces as the children begin to open their presents. Not only the Christmas tree but also everything else associated with Christmas is a matter of great fascination for them. It wasn’t long ago that Christmas time used to be a very exciting time in our public schools. As a matter of fact, these used to be some of the highlights of the year. As Canada has become more and more multicultural, celebrations like Christmas have taken on a different meaning. Sometimes we get too hung up on political correctness. Rather than wishing each other Merry Christmas, we are expected to wish each other Happy Holidays. There is nothing wrong in wishing each other Happy Holidays

Joint Review Panel and interveners, she said, “We have no reason to have to explain to anybody.” So I ask, would Winter of the BC Chamber be in support of the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipelines project and would the public response to the polls show a different result if Enbridge Northern Gateway were to “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” to everyone?

Community MEMORIES

How we celebrated our first Canadian Christmas Today, 57 years later, I can’t even begin to imagine how my parents must have struggled to make our first Christmas in Canada as familiar and reassuring as possible. My mother and I had arrived in October 1956, my father a few months earlier. We were renting a house on Douglas Crescent, in Burkeville. That Christmas Eve we installed a lovely fir tree in a corner of the living room. The tree wasn’t tall but became as wide as a crinoline once the branches relaxed. My mother and I hung it with tinsel, colourful ornaments and sugary chocolate sweets, which were irresistible. It was lit with real candles, following the custom in Germany, where, however, the houses are built of brick or stone. In retrospect we have to thank our lucky stars that nothing ever caught fire. An important part of Christmas is the food, and

Sabine Eiche IN OTHER WORDS

our family had several traditional dishes, most of them dating back at least to the turn of the 20th century, when my father’s parents still lived in Riga (they fled to Germany during the Russian Civil War). We eat our celebratory meal Christmas Eve. Preparing this fare would have posed a real challenge to my mother in 1956. Vancouver’s German stores (for food and all else) were concentrated along Fraser Street and Robson Street, and the way to get there by public transport from Sea Island was neither fast nor particularly direct. Just gathering the ingredients must have taken my

mother a whole day, if not longer. Three main dishes comprise our Christmas meal — Speckkuchen (actually pirogies), Heringssalat and potato salad. To make Speckkuchen, my mother cut yeast dough into rounds, onto which she spooned some speck-onion mix. The rounds were folded into a semicircle, edges pinched together, tops brushed with egg yolk and then baked in her Good Cheer oven. Heringssalat is labour intensive. Beets, herrings (matjes are best), hardboiled eggs, pickles and apples are all finely chopped — the smaller the pieces the better the flavour. For calculating the amounts of the ingredients my mother used the rule of three — three cans sliced beets, three eggs, three large pickles, three large apples. The quantity of herring depends on what’s available.

After the Heringssalat has sat in the fridge for 24 hours it’s dressed with homemade mayonnaise. My mother’s potato salad was exceptional. She never wrote down the recipe and I’ve never been able to replicate it, though I remember it, too, was made with homemade mayonnaise.

After dinner we’d open the parcels sent from Germany and unwrap presents. For Christmas 1956 my parents gave me a type of boy’s meccano kit — something my father liked to play with as well. I’m certain that in those early years, presents for me meant sacrifices for

them, because money was scarce. But it wasn’t money thrown out the window. A few of my childhood presents survive to this day, and I treasure them, together with the memories. Sabine Eiche is a writer and art historian (http:// members.shaw.ca/seiche/).

amounts of property they will cover; $2,500 to $5,000 is usual and even less for property out of the house and these are subject to a deductible. Even if your business is a hobby or getting started these limits are often too low to cover the limit of contents that accumulate. For liability, of course it depends on the type of business but most home policies restrict this coverage to certain list they will insure. All this being said; there are a select few home policies that are well designed and cover certain classes businesses with low property and liability limits. If the home owners policy is not adequate, it is possible to amend the homeowner’s policy or a separate commercial policy would need to be purchased.

For example, osteoporosis can affect the fitting surfaces by creating a faster rate of change to your underlying bone structures. Numerous other factors may also play into these scenarios.

What recommendations do you have?

Losing weight is a difficult process, especially after the holidays. I think the most important concept to understand is that tha losing weight, just like any other initiative to improve your health, is an interactive process.You cannot rely solely on taking a supplemen or a weight loss pill, to help you lose weight. Instead, one must combine dedication, the right advice, the right people, and supplement, the right products to help you start the weight loss process.

Are biweekly and semi monthly payments the same?

No… they are different and one can save you thousands! While the amount of the payments might be the same, a semi monthly payment frequency will be taken 2x a month (usually the 15th and the 30th) and really does not have anat interest savings to your mortgage. A bi-weekly payment is paid every 2 weeks and in the case of a 25 year amortization paying every 2 weeks san take up to 4 years off you mortgage. Many smart home owners will match their biweekly payments with their payroll dates ensuring that the funds are there come mortgage payment time!

Professional Dog Walker

Q:

Why does my dog bark / lunge at other dogs when I walk him on a leash? How do I stop him?

Fireplace & Heating Expert

A: Dogs who bark on leash may not have not been socialized enough and can be nervous around other dogs as they do not feel that they can protect themselves or

Bella

their owner while on a leash.They also may be frustrated at being confined to a leash.To help alleviate a dog's worries about not being able to protect itself and/or its owner while being walked,YOU be the pack leader and have confidence! Practice showing your dog that you are a capable pack leader by always remaining calm but assertive when walking your dog on leash. If you are anxious then your dog may sense this and may not feel that you can protect yourself or him/her. Practice remaining calm, being positive and be sure to calmly but assertively correct him. Dogs do need to run and be free sometimes. Hiring a dog walker for some off leash group walks would give your precious pooch the freedom socialization she needs and deserves.

Q:

What information do I need to bring you in order to change my old wood burning masonry chimney over to a gas insert?

A: It is really very simple, the most important information we require is the opening dimensions of the masonry chimney. So the height and the width of the opening at the front and the overall depth. From that we can determine which inserts will work and which ones will not.We also need to know where the gas meter is in relation to the chimney and if there is electrical accessible beside the chimney. Beyond that if there is anything you are unsure of take a picture and bring it in to show us.When you come in we will be more than happy to run through all the options available to you as well as the installation process. Most of these units we have on display to show you and some we even have burning. Derek Egerton

A lot of today’s vehicles are coming with a plastic headlamp lens that will suffer the effects of road dirt and uv rays. The result is a very poor beam and reduced intensity. A lot of people make the mistake of just trying to put in a higher intensity bulb and are sadly disappointed when the $70 or so that they spent shows minimal if any improvement. There are headlight lens restoration kits available that will do a very adequate job if you take care of it before the damage is too severe. Otherwise bite the bullet and replace the headlamp assembly or in some cases just the lens. And please take the time to visit your repair facility and get them adjusted. We all hate to have that other car coming down the road with their lights burning directly into our retinas! It is a quick, usually easy and low cost operation that will keep you going safely down the road. Take the time to keep yourself and others around you safe.

production for many that it has become a season of high stress and high expectations. The results are overworking, over thinking, and lack of sleep. TCM and Acupuncture are helpful. There are many changes we can do to help ourselves. The original aims for peace, friendship, compassion, and generosity can be served by connecting with family, friends and sharing in the exchange mindfully. Eat to taste, not fill; and keep alcohol to a minimum. Above all, be grateful for your family, friends and community.

Q: How do I control mold in my home? A: You cannot mold-proof your home entirely, but you can make it mold-resistant.

First step, find and eliminate the moisture source. This could be a roof or plumbing leak, or anywhere moisture has seeped in and/or accumulated. Next, monitor the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, closets, garage and attic. Clean surface mold (small areas) with a fungicide or a solution of vinegar, dish soap & water... never bleach.

Mold prevention tips: • Check & quickly fix all fixture, faucet, toilets, drain, sinks & appliance leaks. • Repair exterior foundation cracks, remove soil beds & keep vegetation away from the siding. • Maintain bathrooms by caulking around tub/shower areas. Seal grout lines. • Always use properly vented bathroom & kitchen fans to remove indoor moisture. • Remove window condensation, especially during winter. • Maintain the roof annually including all flashings, gutters, chimneys & skylights. • Maintain all exterior and interior drains; prevent any pooling along the foundation wall. • Monitor and the keep crawlspace floor sealed, remove or cover exterior vents. • Store organic material in plastic bins rather than cardboard boxes.

Q:

Interior Designers

I plan on remodelling our kitchen and bathroom in the new year and was wondering if I should be engaging the services of an architect or an interior designer first?

A:

Rachael Smith, D.I.A.D.

For more information, call me and I’ll help you out...

Experienced and certified interior designers are well versed in building codes and requirements such as electrical, plumbing, heating and venting. Our role in your project is to create and maintain the visual integrity of the space and to ensure function is always maximized.

Q: Will all-season tires work in winter weather? A: By design, All-Season tires are a compromise intended to provide acceptable traits under a wide variety of conditions. However, that compromised goal prevents them from being a master of any one of them. The All-Season tire tread designs and compounds that are engineered to provide extended mileages and durability under the summer’s sun are less effective in winter’s freezing temperatures, and through snow and on ice. Specific winter tires deliver much better snow and ice performance than All-Season tires because their tread designs and tread compounds are engineered to master those conditions, while summer tires are engineered to deliver better handling in the rain and on dry roads. Why not have the best tires for each of the conditions you’ll encounter?

Q: A:

Q: My kids have been asking me about Santa’s reindeer. As Notaries were scriveners and scribes dating back to ancient times,

what do you know about them?

There are many options available for retirement income. Because life expectancies have been improving, many people are understandably worried about the risk of outliving their retirement incomes. Life Annuities are one answer to that risk because they guarantee a retirement income for as long as you live – even past the age of 100. If you’re married, you can also set up a survivorship income for your spouse in event of your death. If you both die, you can also guarantee that your annuity pays out a minimum number of years to your heirs. To counteract inflation, you can elect to have your payments increase each year by a defined percentage. Because annuity rates can vary quite a bit, we always make sure to request a full survey of options from all available carriers.

Hans Podzun

Should I buy a Life Annuity for my retirement income?

WELL..... REMEMBER THIS AT CHRISTMAS TIME.... According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually mid-November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer all of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, are female. We should have known...... only reindeer, women would be able to drag a large man, in a heavy red suit, around the world in one night - from store to store.... I mean house to house, and not get lost. Merry Christmas!

Q:

I have already moved, but my former house is vacant and not selling. What can I do ?

Q:

Dentist

How come I keep getting cavities even though I brush and floss my teeth?

A:

A:

Cavities in the teeth, also known as dental caries, are classified as bacterial infections of the teeth. There are several factors necessary for dental cavities to grow; presence of specific bacteria, acidic environment, and host susceptibility. Once you have the cavity bug (believe it or not, some people never get it), brushing and flossing alone may not prevent cavities from growing. Strategies to make the tooth structure stronger with exposure to fluoride and remineralizing toothpastes are effective. Additionally effective are rinses that make the pH of the saliva more basic so that the acid loving cavity bacteria are minimized. The strength and structure of teeth is generally the same for everyone. However, each person has a uniquely different oral environment in their mouth. This “saliva environment” and its bacterial inhabitants is what can protect us or harm us from cavities. If you were to place a healthy tooth in a cup of water compared to a solution of soda pop, the tooth would erode in the soda pop. The same situation is in the mouth, with the saliva acting as the liquid in a cup.

That can be a very costly predicament, as usually paying two mortgages at once. The best course of action is to hire a professional Stager ASAP to create a visually enticing space to showcase all the features of the home. A vacant house is cold looking and not inviting to prospect buyers. Let the Stager make it easy for people to ‘see themselves’ in your former house and as they know how to create an emotional connection to spotlight your property above the others.

am breastfeeding and would like to know when Q: II can introduce a bottle? A: We recommend waiting for about 2 weeks and when you have no pain or damage from nursing.

You Only Have a Few Seconds....

When you introduce a bottle, the baby’s tongue has to sit in a different position to stop the flow of milk. Most babies will take any type of bottle and we recommend a basic low flow nipple as the best start. Remember, if you are only using breast milk in the bottle you can wash the bottle with hot soapy water.If you are using formula, the bottle is only good for one hour once you start feeding and you cannot re-use the formula afterwards. All bottles using formula must be sterilized after every feed for the first 6 months. For more questions about breastfeeding and bottle feeding please email me at info@motherme.ca

Our sales & design teams can develop an attention-getting campaign for you.

High flying Griffins take over No. 1 ranking

Palmer basketball team comes roaring out of gate to start the season including a pair of big wins on the Island BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Paul Eberhardt is getting more than he bargained for in his duo coaching role and he doesn’t mind one bit. His Langara Falcons are currently ranked number two in the country among collegiate men’s basketball teams and feature a several standouts from Richmond. Now, his surprising RC Palmer Griffins have taken over the No.1 spot in the B.C. rankings for 2A high school programs after a highly successful weekend on Vancouver Island that produced upsets over the top two ranked teams. The thing is Eberhardt didn’t expect to be guiding the upstart Griffins this season. After an outstanding run that has produced seven consecutive city titles and a B.C. 3A title in 2011, the colourful coach was going to ease back his work load. When his potential replacement fell through shortly before the start of the season, Eberhardt stepped up one more time and convinced one of his former star players to help him out when his Langara duties result in the occasional conflict. Edward Fan had been coaching younger teams at McRoberts the past couple of seasons. “I really was planning to take the year off and even Paul Eberhardt had a guy lined up until he said he couldn’t do it,” explained Eberhardt following his team’s 88-71 win over the Steveston-London Sharks last Wednesday to improve to 3-0 in city play. “I got hold of Eddy and twisted his arm a little bit to come here. It’s a real good thing he came onboard. “Next year I’m definitely taking a break. I already have Rob (Brown) signed to come up with his junior team. It’s pretty safe to say it’s going to happen but (laughing) you never know with me.” If the Griffins keep up this roll, not only will they be heading to the Langley Events Centre for the provincials in March, they will be among the favourites to win it. Not bad, for a senior group that was one of the worst teams in the Richmond League at the Grade 8 level five years ago and has made

RC Palmer Griffins Antonio Jhuty scored 40 points in his team’s 88-71 win over the Steveston-London Sharks last week. steady improvement since thanks to long hours in the gym. Palmer toppled No. 1 ranked St Michaels University 81-76 last Saturday in Victoria, then outlasted No. 2 Lambrick Park 93-86 24 hours. The Griffins don’t even have a post option in their starting five but what they do have is a gifted scorer in provincial U17 team player Antonio Jhuty and a dynamic point guard in Gurjit Pooni who has also worn B.C. colours before. Thrown in another solid scoring option in Harmon Mann and there are more than enough consistent offensive weapons. “Going to the Island is always tough and I wanted to see where we are at right now,” said Eberhardt. “I’m a little surprised to

be honest with you. The guys played great though and really elevated their game. We got some real key performances and it was the best we have played all year. “I just didn’t think we would be a No. 1 ranked team with the (lack of) size we have but our role players are really making up for it. The SMU coach told me he was impressed how our guys understand their roles and know what their jobs are.” Jhuty quietly enjoyed a 40 performance against Steveston-London despite sitting a significant stretch of the third quarter. Eberhardt suggesting he is one of best pure scorers he has ever coached as the school is quite a statement given he has worked with the likes of Akeem Pierre, Vijay Dhillon and

Jamie Madewan. “He is an offensive machine. He just has a knack for it,” he said. “Now we’re working hard to clean up his fundamentals and making him a more complete player.” Even with the Griffins’ early season success, an eighth consecutive city championship is hardly a formality. The Richmond league is deeper than ever with McMath (3A) and MacNeill (2A) also showing up in the provincial rankings. McRoberts, Richmond High, Hugh Boyd and McNair are also very much in the thick of it. “It’s the most competitive the league has ever been,” Eberhardt added. “There’s six or seven teams that can win this. It’s pretty wide open.”
