NDP hopeful given ultimatum BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce has clarified its position with regard to an order that executive director Patti MacAhonic should resign if she wins the NDP nomination for the May provincial election. But MacAhonic will still likely have to quit her job. Just before she announced her intention to run for the NDP on Monday, the Chamber issued a press release that said MacAhonic would be asked to tender her resignation if she wins the nomination. A second Chamber release, issued

Chamber clarifies position on executive director’s job, but decision still gives MacAhonic little choice

Wednesday afternoon, attempted to clarify that position. “The Chamber will fully comply with all provisions of the British Columbia Election Act if leave is requested under s. 67 of that statute,” the release stated. “The Chamber is a non-sectarian and apolitical organization working on behalf of its members first and has no affiliation with any political party.” Section 67 states that employers are required to grant leave to employees running in elections.

School district mum on ministry response BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack school board is being tight-lipped about its response to a ministry of education request for B.C. school boards to find savings to pay for salary increases for support staff. In a Dec. 3 letter, Education Minister Don McRae asked all B.C. boards to find savings of 1.5 per cent in this year’s budget and another 1.5 per cent in next year’s. The letter stipulates that the savings must not negatively impact educational programs or transfer costs to the public. At its last board meeting of 2012, the Chilliwack board voted to add a special public meeting to its schedule Jan. 14 to discuss ways to address the minister’s request, which would cost about $300,000 in the first year. At an in camera meeting on Jan. 7, however, trustees voted to cancel that meeting and communicate with the minister of education in writing, according to superintendent Evelyn Novak. She said the board originally voted

to meet publicly to discuss the issue because it appeared to be a budget item but decided to deal with it in camera after deciding it was a collective bargaining issue. At the in camera meeting, the board directed staff to craft a response to the minister, Novak said, but she wouldn’t elaborate on whether the Chilliwack board had found the savings or decided to join other B.C. boards and the B.C. School Trustees’ Association, who have written letters opposing the minister’s request. “I will leave it to the board to respond to that,” Novak said. “I don’t know whether or not it’s going to be shared at the [Jan. 22] public meeting. All I can say is the board has responded via letter to the minister.” However, board chair Louise Piper, a City of Chilliwack CUPE employee, told the Times she had removed herself from the discussion because of a conflict of interest, and vice-chair Walt Krahn emailed the Times to say he would be unavailable to answer questions until Sunday because he is teaching in Prince George.

However, the law only applies once the writ has been dropped, which would be April 16 to May 14. “You don’t become a candidate until the election period,” Don Main of Elections BC explained. Given the amount of work candidates have to do in the lead-up to an election, MacAhonic asked the board for a longer leave. She told the Times Wednesday that she was given an ultimatum by Chamber board president Kevin Gemmell to resign by 1 p.m. that day or the Chamber would issue its release.

“I feel like I’m being pushed,” she said. MacAhonic called the decision a double standard since at least two directors did not step away from the Chamber while working on election campaigns in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection last April. Director Joe Bruno served as BC Liberal candidate Laurie Throness’s financial agent for the byelection, and director Jack van Dongen volunteered on BC Conservative candidate John Martin’s campaign. “I’m the only one that has been asked to resign,” MacAhonic said.

“I just thought it was a double standard.” The Chamber’s policy manual states: “Employees and Directors who wish to engage in work for a political candidate or run for public office must resign (or take an approved leave of absence) from the Chamber before doing so.” W h e n a s k e d by t h e Ti m e s Wednesday, Gemmell refused to comment on MacAhonic’s situation nor would he comment on the perception of a double standard regarding Bruno or van Dongen. The Chamber’s release did say the decision was purely related to See MACAHONIC, Page 3

MLA takes up the cause BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony has taken up the cause of two local women faced with financial hardship because of cancer. In an open letter sent Wednesday to federal Minister of Human Resources and Skills and Development Diane Finley, the provincial NDP MLA called on the federal government to improve employment insurance (EI) coverage to help people undergoing cancer treatment. “This is the reason the program exists,” wrote O’Mahony, “and it’s crucial that your government take action so that more Canadians are not left scrambling to cover basic expenses while they undergo lifesaving treatment.” O’Mahony’s letter was sparked by the story of local single mother and grandmother Bev MacGregor, whose plight was featured in a November Times article. MacGregor’s EI sickness benefits ran out just before her first round of chemotherapy for breast cancer in November; she then found out she didn’t qualify for federal Canadian Pension Plan disability benefits and MACAHONIC, from page 1 “internal operations and the need to maintain a certain level of staffing.” MacAhonic said she holds no grudge against the Chamber board and that she isn’t comfortable that the issue is the subject of news stories. But she did say the board of directors needs to adhere to its own policy or make a change. “Some have said if you were of a different political stripe this wouldn’t have happened [but] it’s really a non-issue. It is what it is,” she said. “They need to clean it up a bit and make sure they follow the policy for everybody otherwise it’s a double standard and it appears discriminatory, whether it is or isn’t.” In a parallel case, Quesnel Chamber of Commerce executive director Coralee Oakes is running for the BC Liberals in Cariboo North and has been granted a sabbatical-style leave starting soon and running until after the election.

Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony visits with Bev MacGregor, a local single mother and grandmother facing financial difficulties because of cancer.

Board should be consistent The Quesnel Chamber does not have a policy in place that orders staff and directors to step down when seeking political office. Still, Oakes told the Times she was surprised by the Chilliwack Chamber’s decision and that people should be encouraged to run for political office. “Politically, I don’t care what party you run for,” she said. “I think we should be encouraging people to step up and I think you find the type of people that Chambers attract are community-minded type of personalities that want to make a difference in their communities.” Oakes also wondered where the Chilliwack Chamber’s decision might leave them the day after the election. “If Patti is successful and the NDP get in, where does that leave the Chilliwack Chamber?” Oakes wondered.

this problem reaches well beyond a few isolated incidents,” O’Mahony wrote. Though O’Mahony’s letter makes no specific recommendations, MacGregor told the Times she appreciates the local MLA taking up her cause, including a personal visit from O’Mahony Wednesday. “I just really applaud her for picking up the ball,” MacGregor said. “I

faced losing her small townhouse during her recovery. O’Mahony’s letter points out that MacGregor is not alone, citing the case of another local woman who was forced to return to work three weeks after surgery against her doctor’s recommendations after her claim for EI sickness benefits was denied. “Other stories have also come to our attention, showing the depth of

haven’t had any luck anywhere else.” In early November MacGregor had brought her concerns to ChilliwackFraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl. Strahl had helped defeat a private members bill in February aimed at increasing EI sickness benefits from 15 to 50 weeks, but he wrote a letter supporting MacGregor’s application for CPP disability benefits and said he would pass her concerns about EI on to the federal minister. MacGregor said that hasn’t happened. Strahl told the Times in November that he had voted against expanding EI because a massive increase in federal benefits like EI or CPP wouldn’t be fiscally responsible. He added that provincial governments also need to take on some of the burden of helping people like MacGregor. MacGregor, for her part, would like to see more co-ordination between the federal and provincial governments when it comes to helping people in her position. “Maybe it can be a combined effort, both provincially and federally, that something come into place,” she said. “There should be some compassionate ways of collecting benefits.”

Vandals hit school again BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

group of pre-school soccer players scheduled to play at Promontory elementary school Saturday morning were thwarted by weekend vandals. Parents and kids were kept out of the school gym by police investigating a break-in at the front of the school. “They stole three fire extinguishers and broke a couple of inside windows,” School District No. 33 secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice told the Times, “The total cost was maybe $1,500 worth of damage. It’s not huge.” The nature of the thefts and damage has led district officials to conclude vandalism and not theft was the primary aim of the culprits. Promontory has a history of vandalism, including two deliberately set playground fires in 2011, and windows at the back of the school are protected by roll shutters—an anti-vandalism measure in place at several Chilliwack schools. But district officials have shied away from putting shutters up on school

fronts. “Quite frankly, it looks jail-y,” Carradice said. “So, in order to prevent that look, we haven’t been doing vandalism prevention of that type at the front.” Window-breaking and graffiti are the most common forms of vandalism in Chilliwack, she said, and for the most part the district’s “dark campus” policy has been effective in reducing incidents. “We turn our lights out outside. It’s kind of counterintuitive, but what the research says is that vandals of the type that vandalize schools are showing off for friends, so if the campus is dark so they can’t actually see or show off what they’re doing, they’re less inclined to spray-paint walls and do all that kind of stuff.” Carradice couldn’t say exactly how much vandalism costs the district every year because vandalism repairs are included in a general repair and maintenance account, but she said vandalism in School District No. 33 has “absolutely not” seen a dramatic increase in recent years.

A difficult loss to talk about

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

W

hen Karen Pickford left the Chilliwack Hospital after her first pregnancy almost 10 years ago, she walked out empty-handed. A couple days earlier, she had delivered twin baby boys just one week short of what doctors call 24-week viability. “My babies were born alive,” she said, “but they were too little to cry. They were too little to breathe.” She and her husband briefly held the tiny infants—one just over one pound and the other just under—before facing a myriad of unthinkable questions, like whether to name them and what to do with their little bodies. Pickford left the hospital a few days later still in shock. “I refused to go out in a wheelchair because I thought, ‘That’s for moms carrying babies, not for empty-handed moms.’” She had been handed a black-andwhite pamphlet about a support group out in New Westminster during her stay, but Pickford had never felt more totally alone. Today, 10 years later, she wants to stop that from happening to other women, so she and Chilliwack Hospice program director Lucy Fraser have developed a new Pregnancy and Infant Loss Group they plan to launch this month. Modelled after a similar program at the Abbotsford Hospice, the group will meet once a month, starting in Janu-

RCMP tight-lipped on body found in Fraser

A

“The coroner’s office is investigating in order to positively identify the body,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. She said that could take some time and more information, including about the identity of the victim, “will not be released until positive identification is made and next of kin notification has been completed.”

body was pulled from the Fraser River Monday morning, but the identity of the person is not yet known. A fishing guide operating his boat near the confluence of the Fraser and Harrison rivers spotted the floatiing body Monday. With the help of Kent Search and Rescue members, Mounties retrieved the body. Police are saying little yet.

Wacky weather goes to extremes BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

ast year Chilliwack residents experienced a 48 degree celsius (C) swing in temperature extremes, the wettest June since 1981 and the driest August and September on record. The weather story in 2012 in Chilliwack was one of extremes, but mostly on the high end. With 10 high temperature records and only one low one, the average mercury reading for the year was 0.36 C above normal, according to Environment Canada volunteer weather observer Roger Pannett. Those temperatures continued the general warming trend that started in 1986, Pannett said in his year-end weather report. “On 14 days hot maximum temperatures in excess of 30 C occurred, above the average seven days for the 11th consecutive year, a trend never previously observed,” Pannett wrote. A year ago, however, things were chilly and Chilliwack hit a low for the year of -14 C plus wind chill on Jan. 18. Pannett said 2012 featured the coldest and wettest June since 1981, adding to the highest precipitation numbers since 1997. Four 24-hour rainfall records were broken in 2012, including the 13.1 millimetres (mm) on July 23, statistically the day that is usually the driest of the year. After that summer dump of rain, Chilliwack had 80 straight days with minimal rainfall, making August and September the driest since local records were started in 1879. At 178 days, it rained almost every other day in 2012, up from the 30-year average of 161 days. There were also 32 days of snow, up from the 18-day average.

It was a wild year for weather in 2012 as Chilliwack saw just one low temperature record set but an amazing 10 high temperature marks recorded.

More fallout from tax cheat case

A

Chilliwack man’s “hare-brained” tax evasion scheme has left an Ottawa dentist and his wife in personal and professional ruin. Clarke and Mary Margaret Webster believed that taxes were unconstitutional and that the federal government created a parallel legal system based on the Hollywood movie The Matrix that allowed them to opt out from paying them. On Monday, those beliefs landed the couple on house arrest, facing a $342,407 tax bill that will likely cost them their home. Clarke Webster, a 63-year-old Ottawa dentist and grandfather, admitted to failing to declare income from his dental practice over a six-year period beginning in 2004, the same year he became a follower of Chilliwack-resident Russ Porisky, and his Paradigm tax evasion scheme. His wife failed to declare income from

her position as his office manager over a similar, five-year period. Both renounced their beliefs Monday in the “spurious” Paradigm scheme — declaring it preposterous, contemptuous of the rule of law and aimed solely at evading taxes — after pleading guilty to tax evasion. Porisky was the brains behind Paradigm Education Group, which taught followers that taxes are unconstitutional and that taxing a human being’s labour is a confiscation of property and, therefore, against the Canadian Bill of Rights. Through books, pamphlets, CDs, seminars and the Internet, the group taught that the federal government set up a parallel legal system in order to overcome the constitutional problems with taxation. Much like in the movie The Matrix, citizens “awaken” to the fact that this parallel taxation system was created and learn how to withdraw from it and declare no tax owing. Court heard the Websters paid more

than $31,200 to “educator” Lee Williams to learn how to succeed in the scheme. The money paid to Williams was roughly seven to 10 per cent of what they “saved” by not filing taxes. Williams then passed a percentage on to Porisky, who has already been sentenced to four years in prison. Porisky is appealing both his sentence and his conviction. Williams is currently serving a five-year prison sentence. His wife, Ottawa-area dentist Tanya Kovaluk, received 2½ years after herself evading nearly a million dollars in taxes while aiding Williams. The Websters were handed the minimum fine, equal to the amount of tax they refused to pay. Clarke Webster was fined $273, 811; Mary Margaret Webster received a $78,596 fine. Clarke Webster received a one-year conditional sentence and Mary Margaret received six months. Half will be spent under house arrest. The conditional sentences will be followed by 27 months’ probation.

Happy New Year, er, relatively

I

’d like to wish you a happy New Year, but I’m not sure it’s still appropriate. Of course, the “happy” part is appropriate. It’s always appropriate to wish happiness—except maybe depending on the words you use to express the sentiment and the context in which they are delivered. For instance, you might want to think twice about wishing happiness on anyone during a barroom brawl or any other situation in which you may be misconstrued as being insincere. But I digress. It’s the newness of the year that puts me in a questioning mood on this drizzly, dismal (might we call it “drizmal”?) morning. How long does the New Year stay new? At what point does the New Year simply become just a new year. Is there a pre-adult period? When does it reach middle age? And at precisely what point in our journey around the sun does the year officially grow old? As leap days in leap years are always inserted relatively early in the journey, will this ordinary year grow old more quickly than last year, a leap year? Or do both leap and regular years grow old at the same rate, with every fourth year—like some of us—just getting older than others at the end? Or do we measure the progres-

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest sion of age through each year the way that we do with people? Do some years grow old before their time? Do some seem to retain their youth, regardless of the length of the journey? Look around you, and you’ll see people who personify the crux of this curiosity. I have a 98year-old father (actually, closer to 98-and-a-half—and yes, it’s worth counting) who is younger than most people I know who are half his age. He has more trouble getting around than he used to. And he doesn’t hear—or see— as well as he did just few decades ago. But people who meet him are almost always impressed more by his youth than they are by his age. I’ve got to figure some years are like that. For instance, I felt that the past year was unusually old by the time it finally died and left us with its 2013 hatchling. And I don’t believe it had anything to do with that paltry extra day apportioned to the leap year —taking it slightly more than one quarter of one per cent past

a normal year’s life expectancy. That’s like a Canadian living 80.9 years instead of the national average of 80.7 years (an extra 72 days—not even two and a half months). Or it would be like someone in Swaziland living 39.7 years, instead of the average 39.6 (an extra 39 days). Women have a four-and-ahalf-year edge on us men here in Canada, with the average between the sexes giving us life expectancy about 20 per cent ahead of the world average (10th place overall). Meanwhile life expectancy for men in Swaziland is actually a half-year longer than for women, averaging them into second-tolast place (Mozambique’s outlook is even more dismal), and precisely 40 per cent below the world average. Perhaps it is the realization of such differences between most of the world and those of us lucky enough to live in the airy heights of Global One Per Cent society that makes a year like the past one grow old so quickly. Come to think of it, thoughts like these threaten to hasten the aging process for 2013, too. I’ve got to stopping thinking about it. Or maybe, we should consider doing something about it. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the Langley Advance.

n the midst of the hoopla surrounding the end of the National Hockey League lockout, let’s not forget the “little guys”—the major junior, Junior A, and Junior B leagues that continued to run throughout Canada and the U.S. while businessmen in tailored suits haggled in boardrooms over billions of dollars of revenue. Don’t overlook the fact that, in the months that followed the NHL officially locking out its players Sept. 15, affordable, entertaining junior hockey was being played at an arena near you. As the debacle dragged on, it was hard to feel any sympathy at all for either side, not the billionaire owners nor the millionaire players, whose average salary is a staggering $2.45 million per season. At the top of the totem pole sits Pittsburgh Penguin Sidney Crosby, whose average salary is $8.7 million per year—before endorsments. NHLers on the lowest end of the pay scale are paid more than most B.C.ers can dream of making in a year. The minimum players’ salary starts at $525,000. By the time the collective bargaining agreement reaches its 10th and final year, that number will be bumped up to $750,000. Considering the average Canadian adult’s annual wage is $46,000, the lowest paid NHLer currently makes about 10 times more. Yes, these athletes are the cream of the crop, the very top percentile of their profession, but let’s face facts—they chase a rubber disc around a sheet of ice for a living. Closer to home, the Chilliwack Chiefs Junior A hockey team is tied for first place in the B.C. Hockey League’s Mainland Division. The Chiefs have been ranked among the top 10 Junior A clubs in Canada this season. The Chiefs represent their community with pride. They deserve our support. Save your hard-earned cash.

Thief stole more than just a scooter

Free square dancing . . . to start off

I

f more square dancing was on your list of New Year’s resolutions, you’re in luck. The Chilliwack Rhythm Reelers Square and Round Dance Club hosts a series of beginner classes starting Jan. 14. The first session kicks off with a spaghetti dinner at 6 p.m., followed by one-and-ahalf hours of instruction starting at 7 p.m. The first three Mondaynight dances are always free to newcomers; after that, the cost is $6 per person per night ($3 for dancers 18 and younger). The Rhythm Reelers club, which is getting ready to celebrate its 58th year in Chillwack, hosts weekly square and round dances every Monday from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (except holidays) throughout the year at Atchelitz Hall on Lickman Road. Visitors are welcome any Monday to come out and watch square and round dancing in action and join in the fellowship and activity. Besides being a lot of fun, the friendly folk dance is a great way to get exercise, said Rhythm Reeler Rose-Ann Lewis in a press release. She estimates a two-hour evening of square dancing is equal to about a six-kilometre hike, and she cites studies by the American National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute that found dancing lowers the risk of heart disease risk, decreases blood pressure and helps with weight management. ◗ Anyone interested in joining the Rhythm Reelers for Monday’s spaghetti dinner and dance should call 604-8237323 or email marvandiris@ yahoo.ca or rythmreelers@ hotmail.com.

down Vedder so she can work a second shift of the day at her other job. I know she must be tired most days, but she never complains. A single woman in her late 20s, she works two jobs so she can get by. And after another long day of working two jobs, she found that

someone stole her only means of transportation. It saddens me that something this bad could happen to someone this good. I only hope that the scooter will be returned. I’m sure that there is some kindness out there. Jaymi Cunningham Chilliwack

Happy to live in Canada Editor: Many people are seeking permanent residence status in Canada through different immigration categories. Part of the immigration application requires people to provide evidence of all the problems that made them decide to come here. The Canadian government provides opportunities to immigrants to make positive changes in their lives. The immigration system, refugee system and network of organizations that help newcomers settle and integrate are among the best in the world. I’m happy to be in my new home that is Canada.

Editor: I am writing in hopes of tracking down my friend’s bright yellow scooter that was stolen from the Tim Hortons on Stevenson on the night of Jan. 7. This scooter belongs to a lovely woman named Hazel. I not only wish to have her scooter returned, but I also wish that everyone could have a friend like Hazel. I work with Hazel five days a week on the morning shift. She always comes into work smiling and her happy mood always rubs off on people. She is the kind of person who wouldn’t question giving you the shirt off her back. And she’s so darn nice, she would tell you how good you looked in it. After her shift with me, she rides (or rather used to ride) her yellow scooter

Faith Today

Put the focus on changing your heart BY SHAWN VANDOP Promontory Community Church

I

t’s been over a week and I’m just wondering how you’re doing? You know, with your New Year’s resolutions. Have you kept to your exercise regime? Have you been able to drop a few pounds? Has your family noticed that you’ve been able to keep your anger in check? Have you been able to stay on line with your new budget? Have you? Or have you already given up and retreated back into the same old frustrating patterns that you lived with last year? I read that 78 per cent of people

fail at fulfilling their New Year’s resolutions. This tells me that making a statement on the first day of the year with the intent of modifying something in your life is probably not the most effective approach in bringing about life change. Resolutions are often a recipe for failure because they place the focus on changing one’s behaviour rather than changing one’s heart. The Bible tells us to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life” (Proverbs 4:23). It’s true isn’t it? Your negative outward behaviour is often fuelled by inward unresolved issues in your heart. Jesus said it this way, “. . . from

the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying and slander” (Matthew 15:19). The point is this. You can make as many resolutions as you want but if you don’t deal with your heart, you’ll never change. But that doesn’t stop us from trying. That’s why we make resolutions, because we want to change something about us or around us. People often tell me how they want to change. They want to change their attitude. They want to change their spouse or their kids or their job. They want to stop being angry or bitter. They want three easy steps that’ll change their behaviour and make everything

fine. But I don’t have three easy steps or a motivational slogan that they can chant or a secret I can share. All I have to offer them is this question: “How’s your heart?” You see, most often the very heart of our issues is simply an issue of our heart. That’s why the Bible says that the “. . . heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9). If you don’t think that’s true push your cart to the front of the line next time you’re at Costco or cut someone off on purpose on your way to work tomorrow. You’ll not only see, but you’ll hear, just how wicked a heart can be.

He knows how capable we are at deceiving ourselves and that’s why he set out to change the hearts of those who would invite him to do so. God has been healing hearts since the beginning of time. So instead of being disappointed in your failed resolutions, why not just give God your heart this year. If you’re willing to make that choice he’ll change more than your behaviour—he’ll change your life.

Two-sport stars ready to shine at G.W.

Stacked Gr. 8 hoops team BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

I

t’s been just over a month since the end of G.W. Graham’s meteoric Grade 8 football season. In the program’s inaugural year, the brand new AA team defied all expectations and made it all the way to the AAA provincial championship final at BC Place before conceding the title by just two points. But football might not be the only provincial title this pack of unusually athletic Grade 8s vies for this year, according to Graham’s athletic director and boys basketball coach Jake Mouritzen. “Our Grade 8 basketball team should be one of the best in the province this year,” he said of his young squad (he also coaches the senior boys team). “We have a huge group of very talented Grade 8s—a lot of players and really skilled players.” The team was 4-0 as ofWednesday morning after dispatching each of their first three opponents by more than 30 points. Besides their raw talent, Mouritzen said this group is also the first to benefit from a deliberate choice on the part GWG’s athletic department to dovetail football and basketball, much like two-sport powerhouses

Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Rising G.W. Graham basketball stars Tyus DeVries and Gabe Mannes, recently back from Basketball BC’s Grade 8 Top 50 camp, hope to lead their undefeated Grade 8 Grizzlies to a top-three finish at the provincials this season. A solid handful have also been playW.J. Mouat, Mission and Vancouver same: quick feet, good hands, good ingcompetitivebasketballsinceGrade hand-eye co-ordination.” College have done. Twelve of the 15 players on Gra- 5 with club teamTrans Canada. “We really decided to focus heavily And two of these, Tyus DeVries on the two-sport male athlete, foot- ham’s Grade 8 basketball team startand Gabe Mannes, just got back ball and basketball, because basket- ed the year playing football. But that alone doesn’t account for from Basketball BC’s Grade 8 Top 50 ball really works well with football, especially high school football,” said this team’s potential, according to Camp. DeVries, for one, knows what he Mouritzen. “A lot of the skill set is the Mouritzen.

wants out of this season. “We’re hoping to make the provincials,” he told the Times. “Our goal is to medal.” “We knew these two were going to be special and they come with a huge group of peers,” Mouritzen said of DeVries and Mannes. “Gabe’s fast as lightning, dribbles the ball as good as any senior basketball player. He can already shoot consistently from the three point line, drives to the hoop, just a pure athlete, sees the floor well, pushes the ball.” And DeVries? “No one works harder,” Mouritzen said. “Tyus is in the gym every morning at 6 o’clock.” One final ingredient likely to push GWG’s Grade 8 squad along the road to success this year, and in the future, is the basketball culture that’s come into its own at Graham over the past couple of years. Mouritzen had a chance to soak some of that up just before the Christmas break at an early morning practice that saw senior boys, senior girls, Grade 8s and even a couple of returning GWG alumni all shooting in the gym at the same time. “We had Grade 8 boys shooting with current college players, shooting with our seniors, and I don’t think that’s happened at too many places, so it was a pretty special morning,” Mouritzen said. “Those Grade 8s get to see all the way to senior and, if they work hard enough, what they can be after that.”

Thanks Bruce, I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future. I’m so glad that Bruce was willing to fight for good customer value. Sincerely, Amy Gill

C1 Spartans win tourney

T

he Chilliwack peewee C1 Spartans claimed victory last weekend at a 20team Cloverdale hockey tournament. The young Spartans team (just five of 18 players are in their second year of peewee) won three of four games in the round robin before catching fire in the playoffs. After knocking off Cloverdale in the quarterfinals, the Spartans found themselves up against Seafair C1, to whom they had lost in the round-robin. But Chilliwack managed to

squeak past Seafair 3-2 thanks to a five-player shootout. In the final, Chilliwack beat Ridge Meadows C2 7-2. “It is always harder to win a large tournament and 20 teams is the largest I have ever seen,” head coach Jeff Holliday said. “I was proud of how all the kids played, especially beating Seafair in the semifinal after having lost to them.” - Staff

Comedian Roman Danylo will bring the Ultimate Comedy Show back to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Jan. 26.

New lineup set to tickle the funny bone

T

he Ultimate Comedy Show is back for another sidesplitting presentation at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. This show sold out last year, was a huge hit and is hosted once again by the hilarious Roman Danylo. “It’s more than a show,” Danylo says, with a straight face. “It’s a euphoric interactive entertainment experience. If this show isn’t the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen, then you watched it incorrectly.” This will be an evening packed with gut-busting improv, hysterical sketch comedy and entertaining standup routines. There is a little something for everyone as this crazy bunch of comedians tackle a wide range of topics and just plain have a blast up on stage. Danylo, living up to his award-

winning reputation with two Gemini nominations, a Leo award and appearances on Corner Gas, Comedy Now, Just for Laughs and Made in Canada, puts on a show that is sure to chase away those wintertime blues. Gathering up some of the best comedy acts in the world, Danylo brings with him the comedy of Titmouse, Urban Improv, comedy rock music by Mirage and stand-up comedian Paul Bae for this show. Titmouse is a Vancouver-based sketch comedy troupe that consists of members from Canadian Content, winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Sketch Group, the stars of the CBC sketch comedy series The 11th Hour, and the Comedy Network series Suckerpunch. Having performed sold out shows in San Francisco, Chicago and a month-long run in London,

most amazing thing you’ve ever seen, then you watched it incorrectly.” Roman Danylo England, Canada’s comedy dream team has returned home to the land of poutine and health care (much needed because of all the poutine). The majority of the writing is done by Ian Boothby, who is the writer for The Simpsons and Futurama comic books and has won numerous awards including the Shuster Award, Harvey Award, Eisner Award, Jesse Richardson Award for theatre and a Canadian Comedy Award. Get ready to rock, laugh and roll

with a pair of rock stars you’ll never forget, the world’s greatest improvised rock ‘n’ roll band Mirage. You’ll love their British banter, egos, raw sex appeal and cool poses. Band members David Milchard and Ken Lawson are seasoned comedy performers. Standup comedian Paul Bae, a veteran high school English teacher by day and one of the premier headlining comedians in Canada by night, will have you begging for mercy with his side-splitting standup routine. Bae has appeared in many festivals, including Montreal’s Just For Laughs and was also the host of the hit comedy news-panel show The CityNews List on CityTV. As well, Bae is a regular voice and contributor on the hit CBC Radio and the TV series The Debaters. Relying on the razor-sharp wit and lightning-fast reflexes of the

comedians and using audience suggestions to fuel scenes, the show concludes with all the acts participating in an epic Urban Improv jam. A cutting-edge style of improv called “The Harold,” fine-tuned by Urban Improv in Kitsilano over the past 13 years, and made famous in the clubs and theatres of New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, is performed as cast members reveal their unique style. Get ready to throw your suggestion out and buckle up for a fast paced, completely spontaneous finale as these guys let loose in an improv extravaganza. ◗ This show Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. will likely sell out. For tickets call the centre box office at 604-391-SHOW (7469) or visit in person Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are also available online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Stay ambitious. Several prestige trends culminate now, might lift you on their slender wings. To succeed, be diplomatic, show eager willingness, and tackle your duties. Your career – and life status, even life goals – are changing, mightily, this decade: get on the right side of this (ambition) not the wrong side (anger, resentment, rebellion). You might become a parent soon. Sunday’s happy but useless, so just enjoy. Retreat, rest, contemplate, plan, deal with management types Monday/Tuesday: promotion possible. You shine Wednesday to Friday: start projects, seek favours. Taurus April 20-May 20: This is your last week of a mellow, intellectual, understanding, loving mood. Nothing will upset your equilibrium, except possible friction at home. (Very likely if you’ve been fooling around.) You can reduce domestic strife all month by channelling this intensity into home repairs or other useful avenues. Sunday’s ambitious (or they call you “Sir/Madam” at the restaurant). Forego action. Happiness, entertainment, light romance, popularity – these visit Monday/Tuesday: someone’s interested. Retreat, rest and plan Wednesday to Friday. Your energy and charisma soar Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up deep, changeful things – investment programs, sexual affairs, lifestyle changes, health actions, research or detective ventures. These are reaching a peak this week, but they will also lose their “main steam” by Saturday. Sunday’s affectionate, alert, but stick to routine. Your career gets a mild boost Monday/Tuesday: cast your eye on higher-ups, discern what they want. An air of (again mild) celebration comes Wednesday to Friday: social delights, more friends, entertainment, light romance. Retreat Friday eve, Saturday: your energy fades, but a month of joy begins.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities and opposition. Opposition will be minimal, as others are inclined to appreciate you, to respond graciously. All month, your lustful, financial, and “detective” sides are strong. You can get ahead by combining ambition and your boss’s resources, especially Wednesday to Friday. You can also stir up a storm of sexual consequences anytime this month. (You might feel like such an adventure Sunday, but little will come of it.) A gentle, mellow, intellectual mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. The weekend’s happy, flirty, friend-filled. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: It’s your last week of drudgery. Just plod on – Saturday (Jan. 19) will bring a completely new trend of fresh horizons, new contacts and opportunities. Meanwhile, perform tasks so they won’t weigh down your future. Sunday brings relationship impulses, but not much result. Dig deep Monday/Tuesday: you can discover valuable information, secrets, money sources or investment ventures. A love relationship can reach deeply into intimacy. Wednesday to Friday brings a gentle, mellow mood, wisdom, love, acceptance of society’s ways. Be ambitious Saturday: meet people late day, eve. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Give romance one more try. If you’ve been batting zeros lately (last two years) it’s because you’ve just entered a huge, whole, new relationship trend, to last 15 years. Right now, you’re at the adjustment, or try-and-see-what-works stage. Instead of being discouraged, throw yourself into your work – February to June, you could take a giant step upward/forward! Then, mid 2013 to mid 2014, you enter the first real romantic year of this huge relationship phase. (If you just fell into a huge, gratifying romance, don’t listen to me.) Monday to Friday emphasize this message.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This week brings the last “home adjustment” for a while (until April or next December). You’ve made the essential change, the crucial choice – for now. Sunday’s creative, romantic, but leads nowhere. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday – a productive, mild luck aids you. Relationships jut up from the landscape Wednesday morning to Friday eve. Often, this brings choice or the adjustment mentioned above, but this time the change seems to lie deep; it slumbers (unless you live in Asia or Europe). Mysteries, sexual longings, financial coups and lifestyle changes “whisper” to you Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on communications, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances. You are finally receiving some “pro” or affectionate responses to your queries. Stay close to home or in nature Sunday – DON’T start renovations or home repairs, just relax. Romance, creativity, pleasure, self-expression and charming kids call you Monday/Tuesday. Most systems are “go” for these: in fact, it’s a two-day winning streak. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday. Be careful what you start Friday afternoon. This eve and Saturday bring relationships, opportunities – and potential opposition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of dancing around the money tree. Money isn’t your biggest trend this winter and spring (relationships and relocation are) – but July onward will see you either buying a big investment (e.g., a home) or landing a lucky money pot. You’re restless Sunday: travel for pleasure, not practical ends. Be home, relate to kids, garden, mother nature, Monday/ Tuesday. All’s well. Wednesday to Friday brings romantic excitement, though it’s really a sensual attraction. The same days favour creativity, pleasure, sports. Tackle chores Saturday. Travel, soon!

Jan. 13 - Jan. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and timing remain high. (In fact, your charisma steps up a notch.) Start communications or travel projects Monday/Tuesday. Start domestic, real estate, retirement or foundational projects – or end situations – Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Romance, creative surges, arts, sports, pleasure and luck visit you Friday evening to Saturday. (If a romance does begin now, how long it will last is uncertain.) Money flows to you all month – bank it; don’t spend (except on Jan. 22 for equipment, tools, telephony). Work delays will dissolve soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to maintain a low profile: rest, contemplate, plan, reconnect with spirit. Be charitable. Visit institutions, government offices. Attend management meetings. Your energy and pizzazz climb nicely Sunday, but it’s hard to take advantage, so relax. Chase money or make purchases Monday eve through Tuesday – all’s smooth, no lemons. Your chatty side emerges Wednesday to Friday: you feel a bit of wanderlust. Wednesday’s best for friendly or “daily business” meetings. Friday night and the weekend bring weariness, and the end of weariness – a month of personal power begins! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your hopes remain high. The last few weeks have invigorated you with optimism, friendship and romantic possibilities. This week is similar, but it’s the last in your run. Don’t delay fun. Sunday’s tiring and yields no net results, so relax, contemplate. Your energy and charm bounce back Monday/Tuesday.Chase money,buy/sell,and catalogue your possessions (even if this is a mere mental runthrough of what you own) Wednesday to Friday. Avoid big purchases Friday. Casual acquaintances appear Friday night, Saturday – paradoxically, right at the start of a quiet, solitude-prone month. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
