Pilot remembers the home casualties of World War II Melissa WELSH Abbotsford News

Donald Stevenson is humble about his role in the Second World War. He shakes his head as he recalls the stories of other veterans, and sighs deeply. A pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Stevenson mentions how men had to escape burning aircraft, parachuting to supposed safety, only to be captured in enemy lands. He modestly states he didn’t do that. Stevenson, like thousands of other trained pilots, never went overseas. After receiving his certification in 1943, the Kingston, Ontario native was sent with two other men to a training station in Dauphin, Manitoba. There, he flew planes while students learned how to drop bombs, navigate, or become “wireless air gunners” in the back of his aircraft. Every six months Stevenson hoped that he would be sent to Europe. “It was sort of incumbent on us, that this was our duty, that we have to go help Britain defeat the Germans as they did in the First World War,” Stevenson said. “But we didn’t realize what getting overseas would lead to.” Nine thousand Royal Canadian Air Force personnel were killed during World War II.

Donald Stevenson of Abbotsford is the master of ceremonies at this year’s Remembrance Day ceremonies, taking place Nov. 11 at the cenotaph in Abbotsford. A pilot who trained air force personnel in Canada, Stevenson did not see overseas action in World War II, however, he still deeply felt its impact at home.

Parks, Recreation & Culture Commission Meeting

A Notice to Residents:

Remote Read Water Meters and Bi-monthly Billing Thank you for your patience in the last few weeks as the City has moved to a bi-monthly billing system for water and sewer utilities. Our community has taken a huge step into the forefront of water conservation with the introduction of bi-monthly water bills based on tiered water rates. Connecting increased water usage to higher rates and communicating usage through bi-monthly bills is key to ensuring the 20% conservation goal is met to meet our water needs over the next ďŹ ve years. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve received over the last few weeks.

Are these bills an increase to my taxes?

Can I get details on my usage?

No, the water and sewer use previously billed on your taxes is now billed bi-monthly. Your annual taxes will no longer have a water and sewer charge.

Yes, Engineering staff can be reached at 604-864-5511 and can review your hourly usage with you either in person or on the phone. Charts and graphs of usage are available.

Can I pay electronically?

Can you tell if I have a leak?

Utility bills can be paid via the internet or through the telephone banking service offered by your ďŹ nancial institution. Please update your system with the “ACCT NUMBERâ€? as shown on your bill and use the Abbotsford Taxes payee option. Your utility account number is different from your tax account number. The City also offers an auto debit program which will automatically deduct the amount of your bill from your bank account.

Staff can detect large leaks; however, intermittent leaks such as a defective toilet valve are sometimes difďŹ cult to detect. Please contact staff to review your usage if you have questions.

Can I review my data on line? Not yet, but we are hoping to introduce this service next year. Privacy protocols would be established so you could only view your own consumption.

A respectful silence

Melissa WELSH

Abbotsford News

On Thursday, Rick Hansen Secondary School was among numerous local schools holding ceremonies to mark Remembrance Day, and honour the victims of wars past and present. Eight hundred students stood up to welcome the four veterans who marched into the gymnasium. During the “Last Post,” everyone in attendance bowed their heads for the two minutes of silence. “I heard people sniffling,” said Grade 12 student Gagan Lidhran. “Having the veterans there, made a difference.” She wished the students heard more from them. The presentation included a speech by principal Julie Rousseau, a reading of the

“Last Poem,” and “In Flanders Fields.” A music video of George Canyon’s song “I Want You To Live,” depicted a story of two soldiers, only one returning home. At the end, one soldier says he is there so his kids don’t have to be. “That was really touching,” Lidhran said. Rousseau also showed a video she captured when meeting two veterans visiting the World Trade Centre Memorial. Both lost limbs from the war in Afghanistan. The crowd gasped when one of the men said he had six children. “In that moment you saw him as a daddy,” Rousseau said. “The video added a flavour of authenticity. I wanted my students to connect, put a face to a name.”

Nine hundred died during training in Canada. Some of those tragedies are still vivid for Stevenson. Sitting on the tarmac waiting to fly back to Dauphin from the MacDonald base, Stevenson and another man saw a plane crash. The aircraft streamed a heavy cloud of black smoke, taking a nosedive into the flatlands. Nearly 15 months later, he saw the surname Stevenson on the daily routine orders posted in the morning.

Thirty-two skin grafts covered his Stevenson face. On fire, his Fairey Battle bomber had gone down, and the burning fuel engulfed his body. Alan had been in the crash his namesake had witnessed just months ago. “Things happened on training stations. That could have been me,” he said. The incident conjures up other memories for Stevenson. During one landing, Stevenson could not get his wheels down. They jammed partway, enough for a safe landing. Looking under the plane later, Stevenson saw that bombs hanging under the aircraft had caused the jam. He would have cleared them over a lake, but he didn’t know they were there.

Another time, a landing in a muddy field flipped his aircraft, the tail coming over the nose of the plane. “But I wasn’t hurt. The Lord was looking out for me.” After two years in Dauphin, the war was over and Stevenson was sent home. A painful expression comes over his face when he thinks about the men who didn’t come back. Visiting his old high school in Kingston, Ontario, 20 years ago, Stevenson read the names of 60 men on bronze plaques hanging in the hallway. They died in the army, navy and air force. “I knew them all. It sort of gets to you. There is no glory in war.” This Remembrance Day will be Stevenson’s fourth year as master of ceremonies for the cenotaph service in Abbotsford. He will read the names of fallen military men. He will think of those who died for their country overseas. And he will think of those who died for their country at home. “I think of that sacrifice, that terrible loss and what contributions they could have made to this country.”

Cornell training aircraft from 24 EFTS line up at Abbotsford Airport in late 1943. Five hundred RCAF students were trained in Abbotsford in 1943-44. Sixty-six students from the bomber school (No. 5 OTU), died during training from 1944-1945. In 1943, two fatalities from Abbotsford’s other RCAF school, No. 24 Elementary Flying Training School (EFTS), involved two B.C. residents.

Spring break among issues put to board of education hopefuls Neil CORBETT

“Technology is huge, and having an unlimited budget for iPads or laptops for students in classrooms would be amazing.” It was the kind of question asked by naive Freddy Latham said the ideal schools would children, or people buying lottery tickets. be the hub of their neighbourhoods, open from “If you had all the money in the world, what dawn to dusk, providing arts and sports activithree things would you want in our schools?” ties, with multi-generational learning.

‘Need to be more open’ From A5

“When we hear from parents as a group, we pay attention,” she said, but added sometimes decisions are not as straightforward as they seem. John Sutherland noted he was one of two trustees who voted against the majority of trustees whom he felt “ignored parents” on the spring break issue. “I think that undermines confidence in the board,” Sutherland told the audience. “I’ll continue to do what I did, and that’s listen to you.” Preet Rai echoed that sentiment, saying if the board does surveys and solicits input, and receives an overwhelming majority position, “we should be listening to that majority.” “The community has put us in there, and we should be listening,” said Rai.

Cindy Schafer noted that the board allowed for a two-week break, but one that “piggybacked” onto the Easter holidays. She said the board heard from parents, but noted “the question is actually bigger than whether we like a two-week holiday or not.” Uultsje De Jong asserted that the provincial government should settle the spring break calendar issue. Asked about communicating with parents, Latham said the board could be more public in its business. “We need to be a little bit more open. In-camera (closed meeting) items need to be considered carefully.” Stan Petersen was asked whether he would support the Social Justice 12 course that was controversial in the Abbotsford

district. “I strongly support educating students on all issues,” he responded. Schafer and Thiessen were asked for their opinion on the increased distance limits for busing students, meaning more kids walk to school. Schafer noted staff has held two consultation meetings and will soon bring the issue back to the board table. Thiessen said busing will always be a cost, but when the board changed the limits, ridership decreased. “If we’re going to lose money either way, with the surplus that the board has, I would be in favour of going back to the old limits,” he said. Twelve of the 15 candidates attended the meeting, with Korky Neufeld, Graham MacDonnell and Arlene Ambrose absent.

Water won’t be sold to U.S.

Kevin MILLS

Abbotsford News

With the Stave Lake water project referendum just eight days away, the City of Abbotsford has released a letter from the provincial government regarding the sale of water to the U.S. The letter confirms the city’s stance that water cannot be exported out of the country. Dated Nov. 3, 2011, the letter is addressed to Tracy Kyle, the city’s director of water and solid waste. It reads: “The Water Protection Act (WPA) prohibits the removal of water in bulk from British Columbia. Under the provisions of the WPA, water may not cross the BC border in containers larger than 20 litres. Certain operations that were in place prior to enactment of the law were registered under the WPA and are allowed to continue. These are the only six active WPA registrations remaining. The window for obtaining a WPA registration closed on September 1, 1996. In response to the inquiries you have received, the City of Abbotsford is not permitted to remove bulk water from BC as it would be a violation of the Water Protection Act.”

FREE

It’s signed by Pieter Bekker, deputy comptroller of water rights, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “That’s what we’ve been saying all along,” said city manager Frank Pizzuto, noting the city has had many inquiries from residents regarding the possibility of selling excess water to the U.S. “We felt we should go to the provincial government and be clear. That’s the fact, that water cannot be exported out of Canada, whether it’s treated or untreated.” Critics of the P3 project have concerns about allowing a for-profit company treat public water, including water quality levels, rising costs, and the commodification of water. Water Watch Mission-Abbotsford spokesperson Diane Kalen-Sukra said while some people may have been concerned about exporting water, it wasn’t a major issue for her organization. “Water Watch has never made an issue of bulk water export, because we understand that that is provincially mandated.” She said the organization is concerned about the privatization of water services.

Are Remembrance Day ceremonies important to your family?

It is an eye opener to hear these folks talk about our town and the monies they will be needing for more (improvements). But what is a real eye opener, it to allow more investors to buy into our town under the disguise of our need for water that will cost us more in taxes as well as a private company and allowing them to do as they want without us even knowing.

Veteran ‘trying to forget the whole thing’ Boaz

Joseph

My View In his own private way, an old veteran just wants to be forgotten. While Canada remembers its war and peacekeeping veterans and the fallen on Remembrance Day, for Louis, the date bears no significance, other than his wedding anniversary. As of tomorrow (Friday), he’s spent 70 years with wife Stella. They’re both 91, quietly fading away in North Surrey. They don’t bother anyone, and they don’t want attention. For Louis, being called a Second World War veteran brings out a defiant rejection of any recognition the country could give him. The man has never worn any of his six medals, never gone back to the old battlefields and never attended a military reunion of any kind.

Louis – who more than 60 years ago spent weeks on rain-soaked Vancouver Island guarding against a feared Japanese invasion with an obsolete Ross Rifle and no ammunition, who waded into “water up to your neck” at 3 a.m. during the invasion of Sicily, and who repaired broken-down Churchill tanks with a welding torch near Arnhem, Holland – saw no heroism in the war. Just soldiers, tired, cold, hungry and in physical danger. “How many generals got killed?” he asks at his kitchen table, a cane at his side. Louis recalls the poor-quality “free” cigarettes given to troops, the supposedly sunk-in-the-Atlantic parcel shipments from home ending up in British hands, and how visiting dignitaries at the time gave no respect or thanks to the men on the front lines. Indeed, his wedding, which took place before he left the country, was on Nov. 11, 1941 during a short furlough in Winnipeg. He got married at 10 a.m., followed by two minutes of silence with his comrades an hour later.

It’s his neighbour, Terrie, who will delve into the cold, the hardships, the loss of friends Louis experienced during the war, relayed to her at one time or another in the eight years she’s known him. But Louis, private man that he is, does take the time to show a new visi-

For those who have never met Louis... remember him, if just for one day. tor a collection of 18 small black-andwhite photographs. His fingers point to images of ships in port, Italian roads, Allied tanks (good Shermans, bad Churchills), Canadian transport columns, his welding trucks and abandoned German tanks and submarines. It’s no history book, but a history

book isn’t alive. Louis is. He’s one of the thousands of Second World War veterans that are, even if reluctant, still able to tell their stories to those interested. The veterans who choose to stand (or sit) at attention at 11 a.m. tomorrow are free to express their pride for serving their country. But even those who don’t, the ones who remain in the shadows, deserve our respect too. All of the soldiers of the previous great war are gone now. Within two decades, virtually all of the men and women from the Second World War era that are here today will be gone too. There’s a sense of guilt about asking Louis what Nov. 11 means to him – as if it’s a cliché. His answer is pretty direct. “Nothing. I’m trying to forget the whole thing.” For those who have never met Louis though, remember him, if just for one day. Boaz Joseph is a reporter for the Surrey/North Delta Leader.

Yesterday, as I sat discussing the importance of this day to a student, she responded with “Yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah...whatever.” I was so shocked, horrified and livid with her careless answer. I am so angry with the young people of today. They seem to take for granted their precious iPads, Xbox 360s and 3DS’s that they either forget or just don’t care why they are afforded these freedoms. They seem to think that they were just awarded the ability to have a friend over to hang out or have mac and cheese for an after-school snack every day. Where did this freedom come from? Why are we allowing are children to think this way? Is it not our jobs as parents and educators to teach them about these mistakes so that we do

not have to see another world war? Soon the older generation of soldiers will be gone and this first-hand history will be lost forever. I was lucky enough that when I was young I was introduced by not only all four of my own grandparents, but also a grandparent of close family friends that were involved in the Second World War. In the family friend’s case, he jumped off a ship on D-Day at Dieppe and fought to give us these wonderful opportunities that we have. He was then captured and held as a POW or prisoner of war. He did this for us to be free. He sacrificed his freedom for us. He gave everything for us. So yes, “Yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah, whatever.” Well, I’ll say it: Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of our beautiful, gracious soldiers of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Thank you. A.

Broader perspective needed on water project People are wary of the P3 water project for three main reasons: They don’t like private operation of the system; they are unhappy that we are proceeding without Mission; and they feel that the conservation plan has been poorly executed. I think there is an even more important reason to vote no. As we see every day in the news of the world, we have to be much smarter in the use of our

water, our environment, and our finances. Wise growth, guided by a sustainable vision and plan for the future, is far superior to the present ‘business as usual – growth is good’ decision-making of city hall. At some time in the future we will need a new water source. But not with this plan, and not with the present leadership team.

Major Plan A deja vu A newspaper might not want to automatically adopt the popular stance but the deliberate ignoring of facts in your most recent editorial is perplexing. Yes, CUPE is involved in the fight to keep Stave Lake out of any private control. Public involvement, however, seems to show CUPE being only a small part of the P3 opposition. The Walkerton disaster is an example of private control gone very, very wrong; the private lab chose not to notify the health unit regarding contamination. Yes, Stave Lake may stay in public hands, but who owns the water once it enters, and is treated, in the plant? It’s not in the lake anymore and is now considered to be a different product. Water is privatized in Canada. It can be purchased in virtually any venue across the country. The private bottling companies do not create that water in a lab. The city is eagerly seeking to sell the treated Stave Lake water to other entities; a private

Kept in the dark over water options

bottler cannot be ruled out. But we can see this lack of foresight with that gold standard – our P3 hospital. The cost overruns are documented, and many people have reported a frightening lack of care there as a result of too few staff and/or too little space. How is that not part and parcel of the P3 picture? If the referendum fails, we will still have the same water flowing through the same taps as always. The difference will be a minor delay before (hopefully) a reasonable plan is produced for future development needs. This all depends on who sits as our mayor and council for the next three years. Major Plan A deja vu is only an incumbent re-election away. Those who opposed Plan A with logic repeatedly endured the Plan A faction’s tiring “naysayer” anthem. Whatever you want to label us now, the “no” bandwagon” is leading the parade. Laurie Hoekstra

There are several items that your voting decision should be based on. Of course the immediate issue is how the government has kept us in the dark on other options for a better water supply. Next would be how the mayor has put us further in debt with a 10-year deal with the Heat, and his arrogant response was that we can sue him if we are

so inclined. Council also voted themselves a pay raise, which I thought should only be a reward for a job well done. Plan A is still costing us when the arts and entertainment center should have been a private venture. Intimidation and arrogance is no way for public servants to treat the hand that feeds them.

On Nov. 19: YES Vote = Affordable Water NO Vote Vote No = Water Shortage by 2016 The Stave Lake Water Referendum gives citizens an opportunity to secure their water supply for generations to come. Here are 5 Important Facts that will help you make an informed decision: the answer for Abbotsford’s growing water needs. That includes low Áow toilets and shower heads, prohibiting lawn watering, and increased water restrictions and limits during peak usage time. Even with a 20% conservation of water usage, by 2016, Abbotsford will still need more water. Utilizing all conservation efforts will NOT solve Abbotsford’s water shortage.

1. There are NOT other, more affordable optionsy.

In 2010, Deloitte & Touche and AECOM released its 2010 Water Master Plan, a feasibility study that identiÀed 19 possible alternative combinations to supply Abbotsford’s water needs from 6 different sources. The Water Master Plan identiÀed Stave Lake as the most viable option from both environmental and Ànancial perspectives.

2. It will always be OUR water.

Even though a private company will be Ànancing $95 million of the $291 million project in the form of infrastructure and managing the facility, this will ALWAYS be Abbotsford’s project and water. The water will NEVER be exported and the water rates are NOT controlled by the private partner. The private partner would only be responsible for the building of the facility and managing the treatment and delivery of the water from Stave Lake to the Abbotsford water sys- and Abbotsford has access tem.

Vigilance launched New APD operation encourages public watchfulness Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

In an effort to bring more eyes and ears into the job of keeping the community safe, the Abbotsford Police launched Operation Vigilance on Wednesday morning. The APD has partnered with key businesses in the city to increase public safety by encouraging greater community involvement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Vigilance enables employees of businesses that commonly work on the roads, homes, parks, and in the schools and neighbourhoods of Abbotsford to share information and to report observations to police. These observations may range from locating missing persons through to reporting criminal activity,â&#x20AC;? said an APD press release. The APD hopes that through â&#x20AC;&#x153;alert watchfulnessâ&#x20AC;? and by paying â&#x20AC;&#x153;close attentionâ&#x20AC;? members of the community can contribute directly to the larger shared goal of a better and safer city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the largest scale Neighbourhood Watch that you can imagine,â&#x20AC;? explained APD spokesman Const. Ian MacDonald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underestimate the value of extra

eyes and ears when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about a missing child or elderly person.â&#x20AC;? He gathered with some of the business partners at the detachment on Wednesday to announce the new operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in being involved, and keeping an eye on the city...â&#x20AC;? said Liam Brennan of Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Towing. The company has 25 trucks on the road 24/7. Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is the contractor that works with the APD for its towing requirements, and they already advise the police of suspicious circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a good crew of guys. If they see someone in distress, they want to help them,â&#x20AC;? he said. Gerry Ennis of Re/Max was also there supporting Operation Vigilance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see this as a great extension of Realty Watch,â&#x20AC;? he said. Through that program, realtors have either directly spotted a missing person or provided police with information that results in a missing person being found on at least four occasions, said Ennis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Realty Watch is a great program.â&#x20AC;?

Red alert for cellphones

Abbotsford News Friday, November 11, 2011

Program needs more donations in order to continue Melissa WELSH Abbotsford News

The services of Operation Red Nose (OPN) have always been just a phone call away, but this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inventory of phones has organizers concerned. While Telus offers air-time to the project, the cellphones are sourced by organizers. Four dispatchers work out of the Community Policing Office in Abbotsford and place calls to road teams. Organizer Bruce Livingston said the phones must have a battery life of eight hours. Since they have often been discarded, refurbished or traded, that can sometimes be a problem. The availability of more cellphones expands the capacity of the Abbotsford/ Mission project and builds the inventory needed for coming years. Although Apex Communications loaned the project 30 brand-new blackberries this year,

organizers are still asking the public to drop off working Telus cellphones with chargers by Nov. 16

These centenary celebrations bring to the forefront the efforts of those first Sikh pioneers who helped to build our community. This month we are writing about two Sikh soldiers whose legacy will inspire future generations. Navneet SIDHU Contributor

It was only three years ago that the grave of Private Buckam Singh (18931919) was discovered at Kitchener, Ont. He was one of the nine Indo-Canadian Sikh soldiers who was enlisted in the Canadian army. David Gray, an Ottawa based filmmaker uncovered this forgotten piece of Canadian history while making a documentary on labourers from China and India

who worked in quarries near Victoria, from 1904-1920. Gray stumbled upon some military records and was surprised to find nine names with Singh as a last name who were enlisted in the Canadian Army. Gray later went on to make a documentary called SikhCanadian heroes of the First World War. (http://arcticgrayhound.ca/filmmaking.html). The documentary describes the experiences of the Sikh soldiers including their recruitment, battle experience and travels. Buckam Singh served with the 20th Canadian Infantry Battalion during WWI in the legendary battlefields of Flanders (Belgium) in 1916. He was shot twice during the war. The second time he was shot he received treatment at a hospital run by one of Canada’s most famous soldier poets - Doctor Lt. Colonel John McCrae. Though he recovered from his wound and returned back to England to continue his duty, he Continued on A17

developed tuberculosis and died at the young age of 25 in 1919 at the Kitchener military hospital in Ontario. His grave is the only known grave of a Sikh soldier in Canada. Due to the immigration rules during those times, Buckam Singh was never able to re-unite with his family to Canada. He died fighting for the universal right of freedom, even though his adopted country at the time did not afford him the same levels of freedom other white members of the community enjoyed. Lt. Col. Pritam Singh Jauhal, now 91 years old, is a man of principles, truly humble and still holds in this heart and spirit the pride that a true Sikh soldier possesses. Col. Jauhal has 13 medals, including the Africa Star with the Eighth Army clasp. There were five awarded by the British government, one by the International Commission for Supervision and Control in Vietnam and seven by the Indian Government. He served with the Eighth British Army under Field Marshal Montgomery in the Middle East Forces during World War II. He served his country for 39 years and put his life at risk. Still, in November 1993 he was denied permission to enter the Newton Legion Branch Lounge because he wore a turban. Brenda M. Montgomery, Web Mistress and member of the Legion, interviewed Col. Jauhal and wrote in an article: “Fellow veterans and, I am sad to say, Canadians, worked hard to keep a rule that one must not, no not ever, must be

forbidden to wear head gear of any kind in a Legion because, in part, one was symbolically in the company of the Queen and men’s head gear was doffed in the Sovereign’s presence out of respect. “Col. Jauhal wore his turban into battle, in the field, all the time. He wears it out of respect to his religious beliefs. He will die with it. And he will be buried with it. And so he would have died in battle as he fought. With his turban.” This incident compelled Col. Jauhal to take action against all those responsible and he took the issue to every door he could. He even wrote to the Queen, and the case received a lot of national and international attention. As a result, the Legion held an emergency meeting of its executive and amended the dress code, allowing Sikhs with turbans in all 1720 Legion branches across Canada. Racism is not an old and bygone story, it still prevails in today’s modern world. What we need to think about is how to rise to the challenge of our conscience and treat all humanity with respect. We are all so proud to be in a country where we live alongside great soldiers like Pritam Singh who have so much to share and teach us. This month, let us not only remember all the great soldiers who fought for us, laid down their lives and saved many, but also salute them because they did that regardless of their colour, race or religion.

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale Abbotsford - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free 1-800-478-1805 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn't cost you the sale of your home.

Abbotsford News

Welcome to our new “Beauty Boutique Shoppers

Building a case for why he feels Joel Friesen is primed for a monster season, University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball coach Barnaby Craddock casually asserts that the third-year swingman “isn’t high school Joel” anymore. Make no mistake, “high school Joel” was pretty impressive. In 2008, as a senior at Abbotsford’s Yale Secondary, Friesen led the Lions to the B.C. AAA title and earned MVP honours along the way. But whereas “high school Joel” was a single-minded scorer, “university Joel” can

influence a game in so many more ways. “He’s starting to play an all-around basketball game, after me yelling at him for three seasons,” Craddock explained with a chuckle. “As athletic as he is at 6’4”, he’s a real tough guard. He’s got the ability to shoot the three-pointer, contribute with defensive rebounding, and block shots from behind like LeBron James. He’s bringing a different element to our team. We definitely see some big things coming.” One could argue that Friesen made the leap to stardom last spring, when he averaged 22.3 points per game in an epic best-of-three playoff series with Trinity Western. The Cascades gave the heavily favoured Spartans a scare before falling in the third game to the eventual national silver medallists. But Craddock believes Friesen is capable of taking yet another step forward this season, and Friesen concurs. “I feel like I’ve come a long way,” Friesen said. “It’s weird to watch my own game tape from every year – seeing that I used to take that shot, or jump off one foot in that situation. I feel like my game is more under control, and I’ve focused more defensively.” The process of moulding Friesen into a multi-faceted impact player, as Craddock alluded to, involved some tough love. “It’s not easy to have such a successful high school season, and then have someone tell you you’ve got so much Continued on A30

Luyken’s game making gains Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

Aieisha Luyken is hoping that a whole bunch of small choices add up to a big breakthrough on the basketball court. Since the close of the 2010-11 season, the University of the Fraser Valley point guard has reoriented every facet of her life in order to maximize her potential as a player. Luyken is a fixture at UFV’s Envision Athletic Centre, whether pumping iron in the weight room or honing her shooting stroke in the gym. But that’s standard stuff for a university ballplayer – Luyken’s holistic approach took it a few steps further. This summer, the Mission Secondary grad got involved with the Junior Cascades club program, taking on the head coaching role with the U13 girls squad in order to understand the game from a different perspective. Her approach to building her leadership abilities was both studious and practical. Not generally a voracious reader, Luyken plowed through several books on

leadership from the office library of Cascades coach Al Tuchscherer. She also forced herself outside her comfort zone by greeting students she didn’t know as she walked around campus. Perhaps the biggest change was dietary. Luyken, a self-described “chocoholic,” set aside her favourite sweets in favour of salad, in an effort to get into the best shape of her life. Add it all up, and Luyken believes her third y e a r with the Cascades could be a special one. “I only get chocolate on Sundays now,” she said with a chuckle, reflecting on her revamped eating habits. “Working on my diet was probably the biggest thing. “I feel a lot quicker and stronger out on the court than I ever have.” Lukyen, who led UFV with 111 assists last season while averaging 9.2 points Continued on A30

The Calgary Flames recalled two members of the Heat this week – defenceman T.J. Brodie and centre Paul Byron. Brodie, who had a teambest +4 rating to go with three points in 12 games with Abbotsford this season, was summoned on Wednesday to fill in for Flames blueliner Anton Babchuk, who has a broken hand. Byron, who posted one goal and three assists in nine games with the Heat, was called up

local volleyballers were honoured by the B.C. college circuit. Columbia Bible College setter Jason Warkentin was named male athlete of the week, while UFV’s Krista Hogewoning won the female award. Warkentin, a second-team league all-star last season, has established himself as one of the premier players at his position in the league. He helped the No. 5-ranked Bearcats improve to 7-1 on the season with a pair of weekend wins over Camosun. Hogewoning, a rookie left side, led the Cascades to an upset win over the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, the Vancouver

Q A comeback effort for the Eugene Reimer Ravens fell short on Monday, as they dropped a 20-8 decision to Mission in Grade 8 football action. The Ravens trailed 20-0 at the half, but mounted a rally behind a touchdown from Taylor Cole and a conversioin from Akamjot Dhillon. That was as close as they would get, though. Reimer players of the game included Taylor Cole and Bobby Narang on offence, and Dhillon and Austin Fenwick on defence.

more work to do (as a university rookie),” Friesen said, reflecting on his maturation. “It’s good, though. It’s humbling. I’m just really glad I was coachable enough to listen. Seeing the improvements now, it’s a good feeling, for sure.” Friesen is hoping this is the year the Cascades break through and make a long playoff run. There’s plenty of reason for optimism – starting post players Jasper Moedt and Kyle Grewal are back after sitting out last year with knee injuries, and UFV (1-1) is ranked No. 8 in the nation after splitting a pair of road games at Thompson Rivers University last weekend. “By no means do we think we’re anything but a team with good chemistry with something to prove,” Craddock cautioned. “As long as Joel and the boys keep playing like that, we’ll be happy with however things finish.” The Cascades host their first regular season home games this weekend – Friday vs. the Manitoba Bisons (8 p.m.) and Saturday vs. the Winnipeg Wesmen (7 p.m.).

per game, also had the opportunity to travel to Boston over the summer to participate in Point Guard College, an invitation-only camp that featured athletes from several NCAA programs. Tuchscherer, who was in attendance as an observing coach, was pleased with how his pupil handled herself, and she was named one of eight “camp captains” – essentially an all-star team – at the close of the event. Watching the new and improved Luyken throughout the preseason, Tuchscherer believes she’s primed for a big things. “She’s asserting herself more,” he observed. “She’s such a powerful player – I don’t think she understands how difficult she is to guard sometimes. As she starts to understand that, she’ll really start to blossom.” The Cascades women earned a great deal of respect at the national level after making appearances at the Canada West Final Four and the CIS East Regional last season. They began the 2011-12 campaign ranked No. 9 in Canada, but stumbled on the road last weekend as they opened the regular season, losing twice to the Thompson Rivers WolfPack. Luyken said her team has put those disappointing defeats behind them as they prepare for their first home games this weekend against the Manitoba Bisons (Friday, 6 p.m.) and the Winnipeg Wesmen (Saturday, 5 p.m.).

KERR Jack Kerr, 92, died peacefully Friday, November 4, 2011 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital following a brief illness. He leaves his wife of 68 years, Dorothy (Woolley) Kerr; his youngest brother, Doug; his daughter, Mary Ann; three sons, Harold (Shirley), Brian, Gord (Lynda); seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his grandson Chris in 1989. Born and raised in Matsqui, the son of George and Blanche (McCallum) Kerr, he was a lifelong resident and pioneer of the Chilliwack/ Abbotsford areas. Jack helped out in the family Matsqui co-op store growing up, worked assembling planes during WWII and went to his own automotive dealership, Westgate Motors, in Chilliwack from the beginning of 1950 to the mid 70’s. Jack had a lifelong passion for cars and was truly car crazy. He also had a love for animals and later in life turned to raising Fraser Reds on their acreage on Sumas Mountain. No service by request, a Memorial gathering for the family is being planned for the spring. Tributes and condolences may be left at

OBITUARIES

Why did my child

die before me?

LaLiberte, Marjorie December 29 1939 October 30 2011 Mom, Grandma, G.G.,

. . . sometimes life is unfair

Our hearts are heavy from your passing but our memories of you continue to warm our hearts. We will miss making you laugh but always remember your smile. There are truly no words to describe the amount of love we have for you. We found comfort in sharing our thoughts and lives with you. We know you are happy and find peace in knowing that you are smiling at us from above. We love you forever and always and we will continue to honour your memory by continuing to be the people that you loved and were proud of. Missing you very much, With love from your ever loving family.

We battle our mortality. No one wants to hear that we are going to die. Acceptance begins the process of healing. Wikipedia says “Acceptance is a person’s agreement to experience a situation, to follow a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit.” Acceptance does not cure grief. The moment my father accepted his daughter’s death, I could see a change in him. Acceptance brings hope. It says that everything is going to be ok. It brings liberty, freedom, and acknowledgement of a horrible situation. Even though my father wanted my sister to live he needed to come to grips with her death. No one told

him in 1957 when Pat came to Canada that she was going to die in 2007. We are told that it is appointed for man to die once. Medical science has evolved and yet it has not produced a solution to death. If we do not follow the path of acceptance we will struggle through a lot of emotional baggage. Life is tough in itself. It is not easy. I work with families who have lost someone significant. They need to be cared for. People like me can help families come to a place of acceptance. As an individual I can relate to people who have suffered loss. There are no simple solutions. I have faith in eternity but that does not exempt me from pain and suffering.
