Wednesday, July 17, 1996 A5 SurreyNorth Delta News Leader (MS Highway 10 signal gets green light The planned new traffic signal at Highway 10 and 168th Street in Cloverdale was removed Monday from the provincial government's spending freeze. Given an exemption for safety reasons, the project is now slated to go ahead in September, Surrey-Cloverdale Liberal MLA Bonnie McKinnon said Tuesday. "It's exciting that we're finally going to get it, because it's so badly needed," McKinnon said. The new traffic signal, along with plans for widening Highway 10 between 168th and 176th, was part of $4 million in highways projects announced for Surrey on April 29. But those and other local roads, school and extended-care construction projects were put on hold June 28 as part of the province's restraint-minded freeze on all new capital projects in B.C. While the traffic signal is now targeted for September, the highway-widening project remains on hold, as do improvements to the Fraser Highway at 152nd and 164th. Son acted strangely prior to his slaying Lisa Rutledge METROVALLEY Sandra Edwards is surprisingly calm when she speculates about circumstances surrounding the brutal murder of her 31-year-old son Blair Adams. The South Surrey woman is consumed with making memorial arrangements and talking with detectives here at home and in Knoxville, Tennessee where Adams was found beaten to death nearly a week ago. A memorial service is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Victory Memorial Park. Adams grew up in White Rock and graduated from Semiahmoo Secondary.

The single man's partly-clothed body was discovered near a construction site off Interstate 40, a short drive east of Knoxville, Tennessee. "There'd been a struggle and he'd been killed by a olow to the stomach," said Edwards. American investigators have indicated that preliminary autopsy reports showed no drugs or alcohol was in Adam's system. Edwards said her son abused drugs and alcohol in the past but faithfully attending Alcohols Anonymous meetings. "He was very proud, he hadn't had a drink in two years." According to family members, Adams was turning his life around. Things were finally starting to look up, said brother Terry Welland. Then suddenly Adams quit his job and began behaving strangely. He was anxious, not himself, said his mother. "It looks like he was running from something," she said. "He cleared out his safety deposit box and his bank account." She estimates he had about $6,000 Canadian, several valuable gold coins, and some German currency. He was found with about half his Canadian cash, his gold coins, some German funds and a small amount of American money. While still in B.C., Adams made at least five attempts to cross into the United States but was turned back. Customs inspectors were suspicious because he was nervous, was carrying a large amount of cash and had a record of drug crimes. Meanwhile, police in Knoxville are asking for the public's assistance in cracking the case. Their detectives can be reached at 1-423-215-2455. CABLE GUY mature Dally Mllnaaa at 1:10 and 3:10 $4 B.C.
