Subject: The reason I am voting Wayne Baldwin for White Rock Mayor
To: Vote ForChange <whiterockforchange@gmail.com>


Wayne Baldwin has the right attitude to be a great mayor for White Rock.

As a member of city council, I worked alongside Mr.Baldwin when he was the city manager.

There was a long list of things that we disagreed on. This could have been a barrier. It could have prevented us from being constructive in our service to citizens. However, he had an approach to problem-solving that I began to call the “Baldwin Road Map to Yes.”

Even when he thought an idea wouldn’t work, he wouldn’t judge or try to stop me from pursuing it. Instead, he would ask questions and share information on the issue. The challenges would be explained so that I knew what needed to be done to reach my goal. He wouldn’t say “no,” he would say, “yes, if.”

We would create a Road Map to Yes. With a map to guide me, I understood what potential problems had to be addressed. Sometimes I didn’t reach my goal – either because the concept was impractical or the challenges insurmountable – but for other initiatives, we were able to accomplish some very significant improvements for the residents of White Rock.

This is the kind of attitude I want in a mayor. Someone who is open-minded enough to listen to crazy ideas. Someone who doesn’t say no, but asks why and how. Someone who listens, fits what he hears into the big picture, and then translates it into action.

This fosters creativity and innovation. And that’s exactly what White Rock needs: fresh ideas, respect for diversity of perspectives, and a results driven can-do attitude. Baldwin will bring out the best in White Rock.

Exfoliating your Face-Weekly in White Rock at NaturalOasisDaySpa.com


Exfoliate Your Face - Weekly in White Rock at NaturalOasisDaySpa.com
To make sure your make-up goes on smoothly, and to keep the face pure and clean, it is imperative to exfoliate on a regular basis. .
Beauty experts recommend to exfoliate once or maybe twice a week,
Note: Exfoliating too often can damage the pH level of your skin and actually make your skin look dry and deteriorate.

Take care of your skin; ‘your largest organ of your body’.

Maintain pH level and keep moisturizing level when needed. Do not use harsh exfoliating products meant for the body... Seek to find and use a product specifically meant  for the face.

Use a wash cloth
Wet a wash cloth (which can add to the exfoliating effect) and put the exfoliating substance for a  face wash and exfoliating treatment, on it.
Now, rub lightly the prepared face-wash cloth in circular motions on your face. Work gently and be generous with time and space of surface to be exfoliated. Remember the ear lobes.and any ‘zones of your concern' and all over the face.
Rinse.
Rinsing your face thoroughly and letting the face dry is equally important to attain a good result.
When dry, add a lotion to your face and whatever elese is your choice.
Steaming
It is usually not necessary to steam more than twice weekly.. Heat up water in a kettle on the stove and remove before turning into a boil.
[Place a bowl nearby to use in the process, later].
You can place fresh herbs into the hot water thus creating a fresh scent from either Mint or Rosemary.

Your Face’ Steam Bath.
Take the bowl. Place the bowl on the table and fill it with the heated water.
Sit down at the table with your face over the bowl and a towel over your head. ‘Make a tent’ over your head and face.

Keep your face at a comfortable distance from the hot steaming water in the bowl; not so close you hurt from the heat, but not too far away so that no results are achieved.
The point being that the steam should and will open the pores of your skin.

Once the steam bath of the face is finished, gently use a mild soap and rinse your face with lukewarm water and a wash cloth. Dry and then you are ready for the next step.

The next step being the ‘facial mask’. For more information, do please feel free to contact the staff of Natural Oasis at any time. - By Appointment Only -  Tel. 604 541 2543

Wayne Baldwin Running for a seat on White Rock Council . Election 19th Nov. 2011.

'WHITE ROCK MATTERS'

Further Explanation to White Rock Salary Issues
My letter to the Peace Arch News editor was mentioned, but not printed as originally written. While I appreciate their willingness to broadcast the concerns I have over the salary issues mentioned, I want to explain some things a little bit more. Here we go ...

RE: EX-MANAGER KNOCKS WAGES

On Sept 13 the PAN printed an article, attached to this blog, based on a letter which I had submitted to the Editor on Sept 2. While the article somewhat captures the sense of the letter it does not truly represent my concerns. To a degree , it comes off as a "sour grapes" kind of rant which was not my intent.

My real concern is that this Council does not appear to know what it is doing and is making decisions without really understanding the ramifications of the decision. This salary discussion was just one example of that.

In the letter, I pointed out that the City Manager was hired in 2006, at an agreed upon rate of $140,000 annually which could be revised at the discretion of Council. For 2007 she received $149,988. In 2008 she received $153,912. For 2009 she jumped way up to $180,917 and jumped again for 2010 to $194,535 (of which some portion was cash in lieu of time off). This represents an increase of $54,535 in annual salary (39%) in just four years.

By way of comparison, the pay for the Surrey City Manager went from $250,334 in 2007, to $252,913 in 2008, and $265,962 in 2009. For some reason it actually dropped in 2010 to $263,085. So over 4 years there was an increase of about $15,600 annually or 6%.

Another , more relevant comparator, would be the City of Port Moody's City Manager. Port Moody is the closest to White Rock in population in Metro Vancouver. In 2007, their CM received $154,272 and in 2008 he got $158,208. By 2009 it had risen to $167,593. For some reason in 2010 he received only $161,807. Over the comparable 4 years (and using the maximum spread) he had an increase of only about $9000 or about 6%.

So, the question has to be asked why would Surrey's City Manager and Port Moody's City Manager receive wage increases of 6% while White Rock's City Manager goes up by nearly 40%? Moreover, why would we pay our City Manager $30,000 more annually than the somewhat larger City of Port Moody pays theirs?

Notwithstanding the City Manager's wages an even more astounding situation exists for the position of Director of Municipal Engineering and Operations.

In February, 2010, the City's Director of Operations left his job to take a job in Langley. Instead of hiring a new Engineer at about $125,000 per year, the City retained a Planner to fill the position on contract until July, 2012. The contract person is paid at the rate of $125/ hr. He doesn't get paid anything if for any reason he is absent. In 10 months in 2010 he was paid $182,883. Nearly $60,000 more than the previous engineer would have been paid for 12 months!

I do not know what he has been paid to date for 2011, but if he takes no vacation and is not sick, he can make about $250,000 - almost what the Surrey City Manager would take home. It could be much higher with overtime which is doled out at the discretion of the City Manager. This is roughly $125,000 more per year than the City would have paid a qualified employee.

So here's the point of the exercise:

If those two were paid in the range they should be, the City would have saved in the order of $150,000 in taxes in 2011. That is nearly 1% off your taxes !
The Engineering advice being given to City Council on infrastructure problems and policies is coming from a Planner not an Engineer. That is kind of like getting advice about how to fix your home's shorted out electrical circuit from a landscaper rather than an electrician.

So, as I said it came off sounding a bit like sour grapes or even a National Enquirer expose. In fact, it is all about knowing what you are doing and having a Council that is knowledgeable and spends the money we entrust them with wisely and with care.

Robert Genn, Artist, Author, Authority..."Can Painting Improve Your Health" ?....a letter to share.

I received this weeks' Letter from Robert Genn and wish to share it as is:

"Can painting improve your health?"


July 8, 2011

Dear Johan,

Yesterday, Donna MacDonald of Calgary, Alberta wrote, "Is there a possibility
that painting might improve your health? I've suffered from chronic migraines
for over 30 years and I've noticed an amazing phenomenon. On the days that I
paint I don't get a migraine! At first I thought it was a coincidence but after
close observation to the timing it's become evident that there's a correlation.
I started painting full time 5 years ago and it has literally changed my life!
Have you heard of this?"


Thanks, Donna.
Migraines are one of the most frequently reported maladies of
artists. So when you mentioned you don't have them when you're painting, it
was music to my ears. Migraines are still not fully understood by the medical
profession. There are several main types, and adult women are three times more
likely to have them as adult men. "Triggers" like stress, hunger, drink, diet
and bright or moving lights can set them off. Apparently, a neurotransmitter
called serotonin plays a role. Low serotonin levels in the brain may lead to
constriction of blood vessels. Serotonergic agonists like triptins, LSD or
psilocin can activate serotonin receptors to stop a migraine.

Many painters find painting to be a leveling sanctuary in an otherwise frantic
world. Perhaps it's because of the heightened involvement, challenge, and
attention to detail that painting requires. Fact is, many of us attest to
"feeling no pain" while painting. While the act of painting may not perk up
your depleted serotonin, it may release something I'm calling "muselocin." This
is the nice stuff you feel when you're finding your muse.

Yes, others have reported to me that it's important to anticipate a good day
rather than a bad one. The potentially afflicted artist needs to set up,
squeeze out, choose the right background music and, with a tall glass of cold
water, start to work. After a few minutes, mildly hypnotized by the job at
hand, the painter-patient becomes pleasantly "lost."

I can't attest to great gushes of good goo being released into the blood, but
artists tell me they feel like something magic is happening. The élan of
painterly process and ongoing accomplishment certainly eats time. It may just
head off pain as well. Back problems, anxiety and arthritis also respond to this
underutilized and inexpensive drug.

Best regards,

Robert

PS: "Making art is good for your health, especially if it is done in fun."

Esoterica: The motivation to work against all odds also arises when you bring
to your art a sense of service. By that I mean doing it for someone, or for
some noble cause. The art of giving neutralizes pain, both mental and physical.
