Two people were in hospital at press time Wednesday, following a collision between a police cruiser and a Ford Mustang. The incident happened just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday night, on Hwy. 7 near Bodnar Road in Agassiz. The Abbotsford Police Department, which was called in on Wednesday to investigate the incident, said it was a Chilliwack RCMP member involved. The Mustang was driven by a 20-year-old male, with a 19-year-old male passenger. The pair was airlifted to a hospital and the driver was in critical condition on Wednesday morning. The passenger was in serious condition. The RCMP member was treated in hospital and has since been released. The accident resulted in a closure of the highway, so collision reconstructionists could assess the scene. The highway remained closed until about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. "Our objective is to complete a thorough and comprehensive investigation which includes all available facts and evidence," APD Const. Ian MacDonald said.

You've got to know when to hold them, and know when to fold them. And after 40 years of local Lions bingo nights, it's finally time to fold. Last night, players were given a letter explaining the reasoning behind ending the long-running event. They were also told it would be the last night bingo would be operating. It won't come as much of a surprise to many, Lion Mel Jorgensen said.

"Twice we've had to cancel bingo in the last few months," he said, due to a dramatic drop in attendance. It takes at least 20 people to run a proper bingo night, and more still to earn a profit. In its heyday, the AgassizHarrison Lions Club bingo would attract 350 to 400 people. One night, a major fundraising effort drew in 750 people. Lately, the number has hovered anywhere from 13 to 24. And some nights, they were losing money.

And that's just not enough to keep the doors open, Jorgensen said. Lion Zenon Sabat has been volunteering at Thursday bingo for the past 30 years, and has seen the decline in attendance firsthand. "It used to be, at one point when the crowds were big, a million dollar business," he said. All the money that was generated from bingo has gone toward Lions projects, including local scholarships for students. With bingo no longer

making revenue, that meant the volunteer time that Lions like Jorgensen and Sabat were putting in, weren't translating into dollars for the community. Recently, it was taking about six or seven people a night to run the bingo. In the past, it took at least 10. Jorgensen told the Observer Tuesday that "it's going to be a sad day on Thursday," for those who use the weekly bingo night as their social CONTINUED ON 3

Kent inmate dead in cell Jessica Peters THE OBSERVER

An inmate at Kent has been found dead in his cell. Darryl Cole, 44, was found at about 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning. He was near the beginning of a sentence of 13 years and six months for manslaughter, minus four-anda-half years for time already served. Foul play is not suspected in Cole’s death, according to a news release from Kent Institution. An investigation is underway. Cole and another man, Joshua Steve Holl, both plead guilty to manslaughter following charges in the 2007 beating death of Michael Gerald Larson, in Surrey.

outing. "But we need to use our time on things that benefit our club's goals," he said. "It's going to disappoint people but what can we do?" The drop in attendance is a result of the provincial government going in "direct competition" with local bingos, Jorgensen said, a feeling that was echoed in the letter to participants. "Unfortunately, the government has promoted and encouraged mega bingo halls which have attracted our customers away from us," the letter stated. "A number of casinos have emerged in the surrounding areas as well, and these factors have combined

to make it very difficult for a small bingo operation such as ours to survive." Sabat said he's run into past bingo players, and asking them where they've been usually gets the same answer – bigger casinos. "We see people and they say they go out to the casinos now," he said. "They jump on the bus and play the penny machines, make a day of it." It's not the complete end of bingo dollars in the area, though. The Agassiz-Harrison Lions club will continue to participate in the televised bingo that runs on Shaw Cable, along with the Dogwood Monarchs and the Hope Lions Club. Tickets for that are sold at

Black Press reported in February, after sentencing, that the pair were among four people who were planning to rob a marijuana grow operation that Larson was taking care of. When they first broke into the home, Larson tried to run and was sprayed with pepper spray by Holl. Then Cole beat Larson with a bat until he was unconscious and he was tied up while the thieves stole what they wanted and left. Testimony at the trial indicated Larson may have survived had he received immediate medical attention. Holl is currently serving an eight year sentence, also minus four-and-a-half years for time served. -with files from Surrey Leader news@ahobserver.com

Funding for farmers announced Help on the way after soggy weather ruins crops Christine Lyon BLACK PRESS

Farmers who watched last season’s fall crops rot in soggy fields after record-setting rains are getting some long-awaited financial relief. The federal and provincial agricultural ministers were in Ladner Tuesday morning to announce funding meant to help B.C. farmers recover from the damage caused by extreme weather in 2010 and into the spring of 2011. Dozens of local growers and politicians gathered at Burr Farms in east Ladner for a press conference in which federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and B.C. Minister of Agriculture Don McRae announced up to $5 million for two new AgriRecovery initiatives to help vegetable, cattle and bison producers struck by disaster. The Feed Assistance and Pasture Restoration Initiative will help livestock producers affected

by drought, flooding and wildfires in Bella Coola, Cariboo-Chilcotin and the Central Interior regions, including $14 per acre to reseed pasture land and $1 per cow for each day the animal was required to be off those pastures. The Excess Moisture Initiative includes $175 per acre for potato and vegetable producers in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island to assist with the costs of restoring water-damaged crop land. “This includes a payment for the disposal of products spoiled in storage and the cleaning and disinfecting of equipment and storage bins,” Ritz said. He said the two levels of government are working together “to ensure these producers get the help they need to keep their land productive and help bolster their bottom line. “We want to ensure that our B.C. producers can get their businesses back on track for 2011 and beyond.”

McRae noted that vegetable growers in the Fraser Valley and parts of Vancouver Island dealt with “severe and excess moisture problems that left many crops sitting in fields, immersed underwater and unavailable for harvest.

“Something is better than nothing.” Peter Guichon “We, not just in British Columbia, but across Canada want to see B.C. food at our farmer’s markets and our local grocery stores, on our dinner tables and at our restaurants.” Jack Bates is president of the Canadian Horticultural Council and runs Tecarte Farms, a 450-acre potato, blueberry and dairy operation in South Delta.

“Having lived through the devastation in the potato and vegetable industry last season, I appreciate the efforts put forward by all producers, our associations, and both levels of government which led to today’s announcement of assistance,” he said. Though met with applause, the $175-per-acre funding announcement left some local growers wanting. “It was short of our expectations,” said Peter Guichon, who runs South Delta’s Felix Farms, the largest grower of potatoes in the province. He had hoped for $300 or $400 per acre. “But having said that, something is better than nothing,” he added. Last season Guichon said he left some 9,000 tons of potatoes in the ground. He calculates he could receive $70,000 for his 400 acres of affected land. Bill Zylmans, who runs the 500acre W&A Farms in East Richmond, is a member of the working

group that negotiated funding with the government. “It took a long time, it was a tough road for us to haul,” he said. Farmers had originally hoped for $1,200 per acre to represent losses, he said, but after closer examination and negotiations, that number was brought way down. “It’s not a lot of money, but it is a token of understanding and every little bit helps. As farmers, we’re in deep problems with finding funding anyway.” Zylmans estimates he lost $500,000 last season, largely due to unharvested seed potatoes, and is thankful he also grows strawberries and other summer vegetables to hedge his losses. “The hit was a lot harder for some of these Delta guys who really had everything in potatoes or everything in beans,” he said. He is scheduled to attend follow up meetings to decide how the money will be divided.

Investigation continues into plane crash Robert Freeman BLACK PRESS

The Cessna carrying two young men on a training flight in mountainous terrain crashed on its way home in a remote area west of the north end of Harrison Lake, an investigator says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were planning a round-robin trip and this was pretty much their last leg of it,â&#x20AC;? Bill Yearwood, an investigator with the Transportation Safety Board, told Black Press following

a helicopter trip to the crash site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The impact was not survivable,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tragic event and two young men lost their lives.â&#x20AC;? Pilot Brett Loftus, 25, from Langley, died in the crash July 5 along with student Joel Nortman, 23, from Vancouver. They had left Boundary Bay airport earlier that day for a lesson in flying in mountainous terrain. Yearwood said the area is full of optical illusions and wind currents that

challenge the navigation skills of experienced pilots. Yearwood could not determine the cause of the crash from the onsite inspection of the wreckage, but he believes it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;operational in nature,â&#x20AC;? meaning it had to do with the performance of the aircraft in mountainous terrain. There is no voice or data recorder on small planes like the Cessna, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so our information has to be gathered from very basic investi-

gator techniques.â&#x20AC;? But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take days, maybe weeks to get the wreckage down from the crash site at 2,950 feet above sea level, on a hillside about 200 feet below the crest of a ridge in the valley between two mountains. At this stage, Year-

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Do you support a needle exchange program in Agassiz? To answer, go to the Home page of our website: www.ahobserver.com

July 5 isn’t likely to leave a lasting mark on history. However, the end of Canada’s mission in Afghanistan is a historic moment for our nation. The book is closed on our decade-long involvement and it will take at least as much time before we’ll truly understand what our soldiers were able to achieve. In 2007, Master-Cpl. Colin Bason of Abbotsford was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Other local soldiers, many who served with the Abbotsford Airfield Engineers, were part of the effort there. The question now is what’s next for Canada’s military? After spending so much time and resources in Afghanistan the culture of our forces has been indelibly shaped by this experience. Some of the attention is now focused on Libya and its ongoing civil war. But this does not appear to be the kind of endless conflict that was Afghanistan. And then there are plans for a ramped-up military presence in the Arctic. This will also take tremendous resources but will be an entirely different kind of mission. The war in Afghanistan cost Canadians more than $11 billion, a number that could double as we deal with the legacy of returning veterans. Despite our departure the work continues, including by a contingent of Canadians tasked with training Afghans to take charge of their own security. Elsewhere in the world we can only guess where the next trouble spot will be. We might not make a big deal come next July 5, but Canadians can take pride in the work done by our military personnel over the last decade and feel confident that whatever comes next, they’ll make a difference on the world stage. – Black Press

LAST WEEK WE ASKED:

Is the new Drive BC webcam in Agassiz in a sensible location? Here’s how you responded: Yes 11% No 88%

Working away as the sun shines GUEST COLUMN Chris Bryan Here’s the scenario: summer finally has arrived. There’s glorious sun, long evenings, and the world seems to have gone on vacation. Parks are packed with people, morning, noon, and into those long evenings I was talking about. The beaches are probably just as packed with sun soakers, fun seekers. The world is resplendent with carefree, fill-your-boots fun. The dilemma: You’re not having it; you’re at work. The patsy, the chump, the sucker. That’s not me being mean, that’s just how you feel. And I’m here too, aren’t I? Foolish for not having become a teacher. A “consultant.” A drug dealer.

Maybe your holidays aren’t booked until the end of August. Or worse, October. Used them up already? Don’t get any? Yikes! I feel your pain. You can weep in your Corn Flakes. Rail against the gods. But it will do little to get you some desperately needed Vitamin D, sporting shorts, tanks and flip-flops. So what is a person to do? One approach was summed up well in a great old Kids in the Hall skit in which a savvy construction foreman introduces his work-weary labourer to the on-the-job slip-ups that can book you some R&R with the Goddess of Compensation. “I thought I recognized that look,” says the foreman to his grumpy employee. “What look?” “The look of a guy who’s daydreaming of a disabling but a noncrippling injury.” And later, the foreman elaborates: “There is a way for a guy to get what’s coming to him. It’s called

“During weeks like this, some people suddenly develop carpal tunnel after 20 years at the keyboard” keyboard, just for July-August, or they catch a rash of summer colds, and use up their sick time. Meantime, for those responsible folks out there – and yes, boss, that’s me, I swear – there’s got to be a better way. How to inject a little fun, while still getting the (bloody) job done? Here are a few suggestions I

gleaned from colleagues, online and up there in my noggin while I was staring out the window, yearning to be on the other side of the fishbowl: • Get outside. On your lunch break, walk with a colleague, meet a friend for lunch, find a park and read a book in the sunshine. Got a meeting? Have it in the park. Bring a box of ice cream sandwiches. To break up the summer, set up a work picnic or softball game. • Buy iced cappuccinos for the afternoon break. • Sometimes your attire can influence your state of mind. Why not wear flip-flops and shorts to work? Crazy Hawaiian shirts. Put a little zinc on your nose. Silly, but better than a nervous breakdown. A colleague of mine suggests women try sparkly shoes and perfume that smells like the beach (cocoa butter?). Sometimes it just comes down to making the after-work stuff more “summery” and breaking out of the

usual September to June routine. Some ideas: • Have a picnic dinner after work, at the beach, the park, your deck or in the yard. • Treat the weeknights like weekends. Go for drinks. See a movie. Hook up with friends. Go to an outdoor pool, lounge on the deck. In the end, sadly, there’s no perfect way to alleviate the rather-behaving-fun-in-the-sun-instead-ofnosing-the-grindstone affliction. Work, after all, is called thus for a reason. So perhaps we should start a petition based upon the suggestion of Sheila Keenan, who on Twitter posited that because colder places in Canada get snow days, we should have something similar here. “Vancouver should get two or three sun days this summer. On really gorgeous days, everyone gets the day off.” I’m with you, Sheila. Chris Bryan is editor of the Burnaby NewsLeader.

OBSERVER mailbag Guarding angels also known as the Nightingales

Letters appearing on this page represent the opinions of the letter writers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Agassiz-Harrison Observer or its employees.

Everything in the health care profession is changing, except the needs for funds to meet today’s demands and be ready for tomorrow’s needs. Today’s health care institutions face unprecedented changes. These changes involve new concepts in medical care and treatment, increasing specialization in services and equipment, development of service training programs, population growth and the changing sociological patterns. Our health care staff in the Fraser Valley are wonderful, and are keeping up with all

the new concepts in the areas of medical care and treatment. On May 27, 2011, I was admitted to the Chilliwack Hospital located in Chilliwack, B.C. and immediately began treatment without delay. May stay was 13 day in the hospital. It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to recognize the outstanding performance of all the staff at this hospital. Yes, yes, we do have guarding angels living and working in the Fraser Valley. I was moved the NU#4 which is the sur-

gical ward. I just wanted to take the time to say what a wonderful job all the staff did with me and the other patients in that ward. The staff on the surgical ward do fundraising on their time off, away from work. They called themselves the Nightingales. At their own cost, they posed and printed a cute calendar with all profits going to Relay for Life. Also, a care aide named Kulvinder and her husband had a great idea; they wrote a cookbook on Indian cooking and again all profits go to the Relay for Life.

Those health care staff are really guarding angels. The whole team was great their treatment, concern for my health and welfare as well as my comfort. A special thanks goes to Beverly, Tina, Theresa, Christian, the care staff and the nice daytime cleaning lady. I will be a very good advertiser for all the health care staff. Thank you all, Loretta Preston Agassiz

HST vote: Beware of simple solutions Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. If British Columbians vote to extinguish the HST it will increase the provincial debt by an additional two billion dollars, $1.6 billion we will owe back to Ottawa, $.4 billion to reinstate the PST and GST, plus cost of getting a new building to house and rehire the 300 staff that was let go. This process will take at least two years.

As the provincial government cannot just print more money, they will have choices — raise taxes to cover deficit, run a large deficit and pay interest on debt, cut or not expand government services (health care, hospitals, education and teachers) or leave a mess for the next government. Public sector workers will be looking at a diminished budget in the coming years and even more cut backs and than now.

Get Connected.

I look for the government to increase taxes (carbon tax, income tax, gas tax) to cover the cost of debt and cost of programs already in place. The government will not be defeated by the HST referendum vote. The only people hurt will be ourselves, as tax payers. S. Gordon Sciotti

Agri-Food Centre opens doors to the public Celebrating 125 years of advancing agricultural science Are you curious about food and agriculture? Do berries bowl you over? If so, circle July 23 on your calendar. Agriculture and AgriFood Canada’s Pacific Agri-Food Centre (PARC) in Agassiz is celebrating an important anniversary that day. This year marks 125 years since the first five research farms, including PARC-Agassiz, were created under what was then called the Department of Agriculture. The public is invited to attend this free event between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and explore the links between science and farming through

interactive tours, exhibits and activities. Find out how PARC-

vironmentally-sustainable and abundant food for Canadians. “Over the last 125 years, Canadian agriculture has changed dramatically and so have our research activities,” says Dr. Sankaran KrishnaRaj, PARC-Agassiz’s Research Manager. “The Centre is a unique mix of modern state-of-the-art research facilities interspersed in 310 hectares of history.” Research at the Centre covers a wide range of areas, including crop

production systems, berry breeding, integrated pest management, poultry genetic resources, animal welfare, and soil, water and air quality. The open house will feature interactive exhibits, research displays, a tractor tour of the research plots, and much more. You’ll see how we are using high tech equipment to study animal behaviour and improve the health and welfare of dairy cattle. You’ll meet our research technicians, farmhands, biologists, and scientists. You can tempt your tastebuds with fresh berries. earn about the growth and development of poultry and learn about tiny critters, fungi and bacteria and the roles they play in agriculture. Visitors can also browse historical displays or stroll around the Centre’s arboretum, which was first established in the 1890s. Representatives from several industry groups will also be on site to share information about the

Fraser Valley’s key agriculture sectors, as well as goodies. “We’re very proud of the work we do at the Centre,” says Dr. KrishnaRaj. “It’s important to bring more agricultural awareness to the public, so we’re very pleased to host this special day and showcase what we’re doing for Canadians.” There will be two cake cutting ceremonies

during the day, first at 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. Historical notes: • On June 2, 1886, the first five research farms were created under the Department of Agriculture when the Experimental Farm Station Act received Royal Assent. • All five research farms still exist today – 125 years later – and are

located in Agassiz (British Columbia), Indian Head (Saskatchewan), Brandon (Manitoba), Ottawa (Ontario) and Nappan (Nova Scotia). • Some of the original farms have expanded to become full research centres, and new centres, farms and stations have opened across the country to support the diverse growing regions in Canada.

Riders saddle up for literacy The 2011 Ride for Literacy is planning to raise money for a present problem — local literacy rates. “Initially, we thought that it would be nice to do a ride across B.C. to raise money for communities throughout

B.C. – but seeing as this was our first year we thought we should scale it back and focus on an overnight ride in the Fraser Cascade area,” says Maureen Kehler, the literacy outreach coordinator for the Fraser Cascade area. “But, we are laying the foundation for 2012 Ride across BC.” The 2011 Ride for Literacy will take riders on a two-day overnight trip into the backcountry in support of literacy. All funds raised go towards the Fraser Cascade Literacy Centre

and the Back Country Horsemen of BC, the co-sponsor of the ride. “We have had wonderful support from local sponsors, feed stores and tack shops for this ride. There are still a few spots left if there are any riders in the community who would like to participate.” All riders are welcome but they have to be registered with Horse Council of BC and be experienced working with and around horses. The ride will take riders along the historic Dewdney Trail and

Charities hope review reforms gambling grants A review of how the province shares its gambling profits with community groups must restore slashed grants to former levels and curtail Victoria’s ability to interfere in the future, charity advocates say. The Community Gaming Grant Review, announced Monday by Premier Christy Clark, is to deliver a top-tobottom assessment of the system and determine options to “create certainty and sustainability” for affected non-profit groups and charities. It will be headed by former Kwantlen Polytechnic University president Skip Triplett. Many groups were outraged in 2009 when the province cut grants to community groups from $156 million to $120 million a year. That was raised to $135 million this spring after Clark took office. Susan Marsden, president of the B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming, characterized

the raid two years ago as an attack on non-profits, particularly those in arts and culture. “They decided they were going to cut out arts and culture entirely, cut environmental groups entirely, cut other groups by 50 per cent and give 100 per cent to their favourite charities,” she said. Rich Coleman, the former minister in charge of gaming, had defended the cuts as necessary to shore up B.C.’s budget amid a deepening global recession and said the reallocations were geared to protect youth groups at the expense of organizations serving adults. Marsden accused Coleman of putting his personal anti-arts stamp on the decision and said she hopes the review ensures nothing similar can happen again. “We need to get government at arm’s length from this,” she said. “In the short term, we need to get all of the charities funded again to the levels they were

Hungry heron

in 2008. In the long term, we need to look at stability, at legislation that enshrines the funding formula.”

Marsden praised Clark for delivering on her pledge of a review and said the terms of reference are accept-

Harrison Happenings Two weeks ago I happened to watch Shaw reporter, Tiffany Gurden, asking people if they knew how old Canada is and who our first Prime Miister was. Few did, but I am happy to report that I would have known, mainly because I was around when we celebrated our 100th birthday in l967. However, whether we know these dates and names or not, we all feel like celebrating when it comes to Canada Day, and rightly so. Who would not like to live here and be part of it? For myself, this Canada Day started the day before with an invitation to dinner at our newest seniors’ care centre — Cheam Village. It was a great beginning! The

Want to spend a day at the lake, meeting a fun group of people? Consider helping out with 7th annual DragonFest regatta, coming to Harrison Hot Springs on July 23. The event will see 62 teams and more than 1,500 paddlers in Harrison for the day. It’s hosted by the Fraser Valley Dragonboat Club and Waters Edge Sport Performance. Teams will be coming in from around the Pacific Northwest. Racing begins at 8 a.m., with final races finishing up at about 5 p.m. There’s live music throughout the day, as well. Volunteers are needed the night before the regatta, to help set up fencing. Volunteers on regatta day will help with boat launching, checking wristbands and running race results. If you are interested in helping, contact volunteer coordinator Angela at angelafarrell@gmx.com or 604-819-4539. They are looking for vendors at the regatta as well.

Harrison has a history of mayors with great voices including Don Ramsey, a professional pianist and singer, who tragically passed away far too early. I would not be surprised if our current mayor, Ken Becotte, has a great voice, too. I have to find out because our choir is in desperate need of male voices and, besides, we cannot break the tradition! Harrison Hot Springs, of course, is one of the hot spots in B.C. when it comes to Canada Day celebrations.

birthday cakes being served, would already be hard to beat. But, on it goes with children’s games on the beach organized by Mario and Julie Macciotti and a small group of volunteers who have done this for many years! Then there was entertainer, Todd Richards and the Treble Hook Band, dancing in the plaza and a joyous street parade. The day was finished off with the Yacht Club’s lighted boats Sail Past and the great finale, the fireworks. To participate in all these events seems to be almost impossible, but I bet some do!. And, besides, it is great to have so much to choose from; there surely is something for everybody. But to organize a Canada Day like this is very tough and we all should congratulate the organizers. They were acknowledged by the Village in the July 7 Observer. We agree that they did a great job!

Read, learn, play at library Technology has created a new kind of tag Tag â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your it! I am not talking about the game you played as a kid, though. If you FacebookŠ you may know about tags, but I think there may be many like me who, until recently, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get tags. There are a lot of things I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get, though. One is why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s July and the mosquitoes are getting the best of summer. Another thing I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get, is change. The last is a big topic, but it has hit me recently as our library system has changed its catalogue. The look, the way to use it, the features once you get â&#x20AC;&#x153;inside itâ&#x20AC;?. Those of you who use it to find books, order online will have noticed this, and your reaction was what? Exactly - why change something that worked fine. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;whyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter anymore, time marches on, technology determines the courser of some events, and so, as with any change, it now is, what it is. What we need to do is to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so great about the change. Following is my confession. I made the change. I used the old catalogue for awhile, which you can always do. They call it the classic version. Classic, another word for old. Then, because

it is my job, I to the library. started to dabNow, this list ble in the new is called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;New version.

These are labelling something on the things that are new a website.

In your FVRL catalogue, you can add a tag to a book so that it ends up on a list that is lumps these books together for a specific reason. In libraryland we like exactness, so the whole idea is, for a tag to be useful, to voice that thought in your head, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;What were some of those books I saw in the Agassiz Library on the counter for the Adult Summer Reading Club?â&#x20AC;? Tax your mind no longer, all you have to do is Tag in the catalogue search instead of Title or Author, type â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Agassiz Library Adult Summer Reading Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and your mental question is answered! You would get a list of books available to members of the public that are doing the adult summer reading club in our area. You could then go to your library and take one or two out. Get it? Anyone can tag books, but you have to be logged into your account, and your library is tagging some great lists. The Adult Summer Reading Club is only one. Ask about other tags we are setting up. Do you have a suggested tag? Tell us, we may be able to work that out too. So, I sit here before

Community T ECHOES FROM THE PAST

Farmer hit by low-flying plane Aircraft burst into flames as it plowed into field 50 Years Ago, 1961 • Long-time resident, Les McPherson suffered a smashed leg when a low-flying plane which was spraying mosquitoes crashed on his farm, hitting him. Mrs. McPherson and their son Leonard were also taken to hospital but were later released. The plane received extreme damage and burst into flames as it plowed on through the field to the fence. The pilot was thrown hundreds of feet. Bob McPherson cut off the pilot’s parachute which was burning his back, but the man

did not survive. Although a number of station wagons were among the many cars rushing to the scene, police waited until trained personnel arrived to move Mr. McPherson. • In Harrison Hot Springs electricity was interrupted for two and a half days in the aftermath of the spray plane accident. The plane struck the 360,000 volt transmission line near Hot Springs Road, causing it to crash. • The long-awaited plaque was finally placed on the cairn at Port

Douglas, marking the overland route to the interior of BC and the gold fields. Four speedboats left Harrison Hot Springs with the Honourable Earle Westwood, Minister of Recreation, and about 75 people from Agassiz, Harrison, Chilliwack and Haney. A caravan of cars from Pemberton joined them. The President of the Pemberton Chamber of Commerce said he looked forward to the day they could travel by road to Vancouver via the west side of Harrison Lake.

you can still join. Set an example, be a reader, grownups! Get your kids going on it, as it is a fact that reading over summer makes school days easier for your youngsters in September. Plus, you are never bored when you are a reader. Or join just because you want to ‘Read for luck’ and hopefully win a prize yourself. Your library is also proud to be a participant in the Storytime in the Park program, which is the most wonderful free family event going in our towns. Every Wednesday you can have a story read to you, take that book home for your family, enjoy a little lunch, see some entertainment and meet other families. It doesn’t get much better. For July it is in Pio-

neer Park, Agassiz, and in August, it is in Spirit Square in Harrison Hot Springs. What other fun stuff is the library into? Recreation on Tour! All summer at neighbourhood parks, the District of Kent offers outdoor games, crafts and fun and .... your library will be there with a few stories and books for you to take home. Most of all, come visit your library, where the air-conditioning is always on and over 1 million books await you. There is always someone to help you, to say ‘hi’ and exchange what our latest good reads are or talk about home remedies for mosquito repellents. Enjoy your days and see you in the stacks. – Terrill Scott is supervisor of the Agassiz Library
