at the Mic

Amateur or professional, people have a chance to experiment in front of a crowd at a North Delta theatre

Boaz Joseph, Reporter Surrey North Delta Leader Patti McGregor wasn't just the MC. The longtime member of the Delta arts community strapped on her acoustic guitar for a bluesy opening number at a recent Open Mic Night at the Firehall Centre for the Arts. The monthly Delta Arts Council event had an audience of about 40 people, a good start for a new season after a long summer break. There will be a "smashing line-up," she told the crowd. "We have a variety of poetry and a variety of singing styles, and we have a little surprise towards the end." The rules at an Open Mic Night are simple: Pay your $4, sit and watch, or sit

and wait to be called for your two performances, in any style. It's a backstage club for people to experiment in front of a crowd, where performers can be musicians, comedians, poets and improvisational artists—the mix varies from night to night. There is one restriction: "We don't want 40 verses for one song," McGregor said in mock admonishment. "That's not very fair." One evening's highlights were: • Marilyn Kruger, a North Delta resident for 25 years, played two bluegrass songs using a metal slide on her "new toy," a resonator guitar in her lap. It was her fourth performance at an Open Mic Night. "I live to sing," she said after the show, adding that she started playing guitar seven years ago "because I didn't

have anybody to accompany me." She told her audience: "I love that this opportunity has been given to us to come out and share some of our music." • Doris Lavoie, a senior Metis from Manitoba with a deep vibrato voice, played two bluesy acoustic songs. She has played across Canada, and can be found on a Youtube video from 2007. • North Delta Grade 12 student Jeremiah Ackermann, in his sixth visit, multi-tasked with an acoustic guitar, vocals and a bass drum and crash cymbal operated by foot pedal.

Air Canada charity lifts spirits of young children Philip Raphael, Editor South Delta Leader Dozens of flights take off and land at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) every day. But early on Oct. 18 a special Air Canada Boeing 767 not only lifted off the runway, it helped raise the spirits of its passengers—including a pair from Delta. It was the 19th annual Dreams Take Flight trip to Disneyland with 124 children who face physical, social and mental challenges. Ladner's Katrina Lane, 7, and Benjamin Lambert, 9, and others were whisked away to the Magic Kingdom for the day. For Lane's mom, Melissa Kluey, the chance for her daughter to take part was like a dream come true. "I was so excited for her. I didn't tell her she was chosen until about a week before the flight," Kluey said. "And when I did she was stunned. She kept saying, 'I get to go, I get to go.'" Lane, who is in Grade 2 at Port Guichon elementary school, was diagnosed with epilepsy 18 months ago. Her mom said she is a big fan of Rapunzel in the

Disney animated movie Tangled and is growing her brunette locks in hopes of performing some of the Rapunzel's magical stunts. But while that may be a bit of a stretch, the real magical events of the trip to California was to see, "other kids like her and that they can all have fun together and it doesn't matter," Kluey said. For Lambert, a Grade 5 student at Holly Elementary school who was diagnosed with Tourettes syndrome, the news he was picked for the flight came a couple of months ago. Mom, Martha Cheney, said her son, "had huge eyes and just couldn't believe it," when told. Cheney said she was impressed with the event's organization and attention to detail to ensure the day goes off with few, if any, hitches. "To send your child off without you (a parent) on a plane trip you have to feel pretty confident in the people you're sending them with," she said. "And I think it's wonderful they send such a wide range of kids." Along for the trip were 85 Vancouver-based escorts and

Society's grand opening in September. • Delta Arts Council regular and "arctic blonde" Leah Catherall and Bobby Dixon, Open Mic Night's sound man, played two piano instrumentals apiece. (Dixon performed both classical and Coldplay). • Russ Morgan, a self-described "old fogie" went a capella with two oldies-but-goodies. The second song, he said, was rehearsed in the shower. • Accompanied by her husband Brian on guitar, Linda McCrumb sang Autumn Leaves and Let It Be Me. • Sands Secondary grad Shayla Gibson, 18, fought her nerves to recite a poem she wrote in class, and then sang The Celtic

Thunder song A Place in the Choir in hybrid a capella/iPod form. • Ophelia Gabriel sang Ray Charles and Olivia Newton-John songs while playing a ukulele. • After singing Waltz Across Texas, Peter Scott taught the crowd how to mimic the sound of a bagpipe by plugging his nose and tapping his voice box with the side of one hand. The lesson was for his second song, about the 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot, also known as The Black Watch. McGregor said the Open Mic Night is "the best mix of an inter-generational audience that I've seen. It's not just us old fogies." She's also urged visitors to consider getting involved in

Indeed, the "little surprise" McGregor promised to finish the show was a quartet, accompanied by Brian McCrumb on guitar. "Whenever I get good harmonies, the hair at the back of my neck stands up," said McGregor.

This fall, Earthwise Society is celebrating John’s newest project, dubbed John’s Rockery. It's a creative reuse project incorporating found material to build a rock garden to showcase plants that are native to well-draining rocky outcrops such as those found along the

West Coast. The Earthwise Garden and Farm has a team of more than 50 dedicated volunteers whose energy, knowledge and commitment help keep our community green. If you have a green thumb, or would like to acquire one, Earthwise invites you to come for a visit on Nov. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. Join other volunteers for dessert and coffee, find out about volunteering at Earthwise and stay for a viewing and discussion of the film Food, Inc.

Delta good with funds How good is the Corporation of Delta with money? Good enough to recently receive an award for municipal excellence from the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties Vancouver (NAIOP) as the “Most Fiscally Responsible” municipality. NAIOP represents the Commercial Real Estate Development Association of Vancouver and is one of 50 Chapters throughout North America. Delta’s award is part of NAIOP’s annual “municipal report card,” in which 20 Lower Mainland municipalities were asked to complete a survey identifying the costs and steps associated with a hypothetical development proposal. NAIOP recognized Delta as “Most Fiscally Responsible” for keeping municipal cost increases in line with overall inflation over the 10-year time frame of the survey.

Quality time. Attentive care.

Black Press Delta resident Charles (Chuck) Ratzlaff is among the recipients of a prestigious research award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR). Ratzlaff, a PhD candidate in epidemiology in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Health Care and Epidemiology at UBC, is one of 95 individuals working in diverse fields of health research to be selected for funding in MSFHR’s 2010/11 research scholar and trainee competitions. Ratzlaff’s research will demonstrate how physical activity and one or more subtle deformities of the hip can cause cartilage damage and eventually osteoarthritis. His research will generate the new knowledge needed for major breakthroughs in the prevention, detection and treatment of hip osteoarthritis. Given an aging population

New dog park fences on the horizon Delta sets aside money to enclose four off-leash areas Christine Lyon, Reporter South Delta Leader Four off-leash dog parks in Delta could get fenced off next year. On Monday (Oct. 17), Delta council unanimously endorsed a recommendation from the Parks, Recreation & Culture Department that funds to fence offleash areas at Dennison Park, Ladner Harbour Park, Delview Park and Scott 72 Park Reserve be considered as part of the 2012 budget planning. “Providing a contained area for dogs to roam freely will alleviate many of the concerns expressed by area residents and current users of these spaces,” says a parks department staff report. About 627 metres of fencing would be required to enclose the four locations at cost of $72,105. There are 13 off-leash areas in Delta, all established by late fall 2010. Each area is equipped with waste receptacles and bags,

plus signage that includes a site map and park rules. Council previously deferred a decision to create fenced compounds at the four locations, allowing more time to judge the success of the sites. Since creating the off-leash areas, “there have been very few problems reported at any of the locations,” says the municipal staff report. “Issues that do arise are generally around the interaction between other users within the space, and or the fact that some users don’t pick up after their pet(s).” “There has been some expressed concern about the lack of containment within some of the areas and the fact these areas are positioned in close proximity to spaces that would otherwise not allow dogs.” The off-leash area at Dennison is adjacent to sport fields and close to the road. Some 190 metres of fencing would be required to keep dogs from

running freely onto the playing fields and streets. Ladner Harbour Park is adjaw cent to a picnic and children’s playground area, and environmentally sensitive lands around the Ladner Harbour Sewage Lagoon. And Delview Park is close to a playground and parking lot. “Several complaints have been received by users of this space that dogs are often roaming the adjacent sport fields and running into the parking lot and playground. Providing fencing at this location will help manage these concerns,” the staff report says. The Scott 72 Park off-leash area is a large, open, grassy space adjacent to the Scottsdale Mall parking lot. “Several complaints have been received from area residents that use the adjacent pathway to the mall that free running dogs pose a threat to them, as many are elderly. Providing fencing will alleviate this concern."

cally, socially and mentally challenged children, said Vancouver chapter president and Tsawwassen resident Melissa Hance. "We have a coordinator who works closely with all of the agencies selected," said Hance. "We always take 15 children from BC Children's Oncology department, five each from BC Epilepsy, BC Tourettes, Spina Bifida Association, the Touchstone Family Association, and Learning Disabilities. The remaining

children come from various low income elementary schools. All must fit the age criteria of six to 11-years-old and can not have the physical or financial means to go to Disneyland." To help speed up the departure and arrival, the flights bypass normal check-in at YVR and are greeted in Los Angeles by a choir singing "It's a Small World." Then it's on to buses and a day of rides at Disneyland, with a stop for lunch and visit with

Goofy, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Pluto. "The food is yummy and the highlight is always the Mickey rice crispy ears dipped in chocolate," Hance said. After eight hours in the park, it's back to the airport and the usually very quiet flight home. "All of the kiddies are exhausted and that's the sound of success for us," Hance said.
