OH, CANADA DAY

The first-ever Abbotsford-Mission Times Great Canada Day Photo Contest was a huge success and the decisions were not easy, but here are your two grand prize winners. Kelly Kitsch submitted the photo on the left, of German exchange student Lisa, with her German flag-painted nails, showing how much she loves Canada by making a heart with two Canadian flags handed out at Mission’s Canada Day festivities at Fraser River Heritage Park. The photo on the right is a stunning capture of the fireworks at Heritage Park, taken by 10-year-old Brooklin Croutch. Congratulations to both winners, who will receive a pair of Cultus Lake Waterpark day passes for their entries. To see the judges’ Top 10 picks, visit our website at www.abbotsfordtimes.com.

bbotsford West MLA and Minister of Finance Mike de Jong said news of the Canada Day terrorist plot to plant bombs at the B.C. Legislature only highlights the resilience of democracy. RCMP announced Tuesday that a Surrey couple arrested in Abbotsford was subsequently charged after investigators recovered explosive devices from outside the legislature

Terror plot won’t diminish the resilience of democracy says Finance Minister Mike de Jong

in Victoria on Monday. The explosive devices were set in pressure cookers, similar to the type of bombs used in the Boston Marathon bombings. De Jong said the foiled domestic terrorist plot demonstrates both the effectiveness of national and provincial law enforcement to

prevent threats to the public and the strength of democratic institutions. Despite the announcement, business got underway at the legislature on Tuesday and continued on as usual, unaffected by fears or concerns about security, he noted. “Yesterday, my focus was entirely

on the budget debate that’s going on, and the question period process . . .,” said de Jong. “All [MLAs] were at their stations and working yesterday, and the people’s work continued unabated.” Premier Christy Clark said Tuesday the “heart of the democratic process” in the province was tar-

geted as were citizens celebrating Canada Day, but parliament stood strong and was back at work “undeterred and undaunted.” The plot would not succeed in damaging democratic institutions and that society and the public would not be “governed by fear and suspicion,” she said. Heightened security measures are unlikely to be put in place at the legislature as a result of the plot, said de Jong. See BOMBS, page A4

his is the summer of Ian Stuart. It h a s t o b e. He missed it last year. It was just over a year ago, on May 22, when Stuart was diagnosed with Stage III testicular cancer at 20 years of age. “At f i r s t I d e n i e d t h e seriousness of it,” said the Abbotsford resident who was studying criminal justice at the University of the Fraser Valley and training as a reservist for the Canadian Forces. “I didn’t think it would be an entire summer ordeal.” But it was. Within three weeks of the diagnosis, Stuart underwent surgery and three weeks later, on July 9, he began eight weeks of chemotherapy at the BC Cancer Agency’s Abbotsford Centre. Stuart says he’s one of

the lucky ones. Because his symptoms were obviously noticeable, he sought medical help almost immediately. By the time he was diagnosed, the testicular cancer had already spread to lymph nodes in his abdomen and his lungs, resulting in roughly 30 tumours. “I was in pretty decent shape before the diagnosis, so the effects of chemo weren’t as bad as what I’d heard,” he said. “I’d played a lot of sports. I was in good shape.” Stuart said he was inspired by cancer sur vivor and cyclist Lance Armstrong. “I could relate to it,” he said of Armstrong’s book. Although he wasn’t able to continue his job as a lifeguard with the City of Abbotsford pools last year, Stuart stayed active with low impact exercises like running and cycling throughout

his chemotherapy. The final treatment was Sept. 4, just in time for him to continue his studies at UFV. Now, at 21, Stuart just graduated from UFV and is back working as a lifeguard and teaching swimming at the pool for the summer. All the tumours in the lungs were wiped out by the chemo and the four tumours in his abdomen have decreased in size and been replaced with scar tissue, he said. To mark his victory over cancer and begin his long overdue summer, Stuart will be running in the 10-kilometre Underwear Affair in downtown Vancouver on Saturday. The fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation helps ra i s e a w a re n e s s o f t h e importance of early detection for cancers below the waist. Stuart considers himself

lucky because testicular cancer can be easily treated in most cases. “I was fortunate to have the cancer I did, because it’s so curable,” he said. “This is a way to give back to the foundation and bring other cancers up to that level of treatment.” As of June 27, he has raised $1,276 for the BC Cancer Foundation.

he contentious gun discharge bylaw took a turn on Tuesday, as District of Mission council voted in favour of forming an advisory committee to deal with issue. Council arrived at the decision based on the overwhelming public response to the bylaw, which would have seen a total ban on the discharge of firearms within the municipal boundary. Council gave the first three readings of the proposed bylaw at its May 21 session, and called for public input. Approximately 150 people packed council chambers for an emotional meeting on June 19, and 37 people spoke on the issue. As a result of the meeting, council resolved to form a committee, which is to include a wide spectrum of area citizens, to address the issue. “The average citizen, I believe, needs to be (part of the committee) as well,” said Mayor Ted Adlem.“I respect the people who came forward (to speak at the public input meeting), but they are not the only people that live in the district of Mission.” Gun enthusiasts have been allowed to partake in legal shooting activities – both of the hunting and non-hunting varieties – in the rural areas of the district since the introduction of the (existing) 1993 Discharge of Firearms Bylaw. The new bylaw was proposed largely due to safety concerns surrounding the activity in the area. “I do agree that we tried to take it (bylaw) too far, too fast, before we had the public meeting,” said Counc. Jeff Jewell. “I personally take this all as a learning experience and do plan for us to get better as we move forward. But, this (forming a committee) is, I think, a very positive choice.

– SUBMITTED, RCMP

Left, evidence seized in the failed Canada Day bomb plot in Victoria; above, the inside of one of the pressure cooker bombs.

No Abbotsford connection to crime, other than arrest BOMBS, from page A1 The fact that the public was never in danger was an “affirmation there are effective measures in place to deter those who seek to do harm to others,” he said. Suspects John Stewart Nuttall, 38 and Amanda Marie Korody, 29 are now charged with knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, possession of an explosive substance and conspiring to commit and indictable offence. Though the suspects were arrested locally, there is no Abbotsford connection to the plot and pair has no known ties to the community, said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen Tuesday. RCMP Assistant Commissioner James Malizia said investigators detected the threat early and disrupted it. Although the police believe the threat was real, “at no time was the security of the public at risk,” said Malizia at a press conference Tuesday. The investigation began in February when the Canadian Security Intelligence Service tipped the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team about a possible terror plot, leading to the four-month investigation dubbed Project Souvenir. Both Nuttall and Korody are Canadian born, but were inspired by al-Qaida ideology, said Malizia. The RCMP believes the suspects had planned to build and place explosive devices in Victoria for the purpose of causing death

on Canada Day. There is no indication of a link to the Boston bombings, according to the RCMP. RCMP Asst. Com. Wayne Rideout said the pair’s “self-radicalized behaviour was intended to create maximum impact and harm to Canadian citizens at the B.C. Legislature on a national holiday.” “They took steps to educate themselves and produced explosive devices designed to cause injury and death,” he said. The RCMP used a variety of techniques to “monitor and control” the accused throughout their conspiracy, though Rideout said he couldn’t provide specifics as the case is before the courts. “The suspects were committed to acts of violence and discussed a wide variety of targets and techniques. In order to ensure public safety, we employed a variety of complex investigative and covert techniques to control any opportunity the suspects had to commit harm,” Rideout said. Nuttall has a criminal record including a 2010 conviction for possessing weapon for dangerous purpose. He also has convictions for robbery, mischief and breaching probation conditions. Victoria lawyer Tom Morino said he has represented John Nuttall in the past, and was contacted by him on Monday evening. Morino said the two suspects were arrested on Monday after returning from Victoria.

Ledgeview lining up for profit this year

ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

T

he Ledgeview Golf Society is reportedly on par to make a profit this year after getting a grant from the city to get out the financial rough last spring. Phil Dodd, Ledgeview Society Board vice president, said the city’s public golf course is expecting to bring in a $75,000 operating profit at the end of 2013. “A lot of it is due to cost containment and a reduction in various expenses, and [good] weather in March did play a factor,” said Dodd on Wednesday. To s o m e c r i t i c i s m , Abbotsford council provided a one-time grant of $115,000 to the local golf course last May, after the non-profit group that has been operating the course for the city for more than three decades asked for help to guarantee the public facility’s survival. Council opted to forgive $65,000 in rent and provide $50,000 for course capital improvements. In September 2012, the society voted to maintain operation of the course and started making operational changes to be financially sustainable, said Dodd. The foremost objective was to cut $130,000 in operating

expenses from the budget, he said. The society reviewed all aspects of the golf course, including the food and beverage, pro shop and grounds and greens operations, said Dodd. The society let go of the general manager and asked a number of society members to take on various operational responsibilities on a volunteer basis. The society also contracted out the food operations, but kept control of the liquor licence. The course is also being aggressively marketed through social media and the society looked at the regional competition and set extremely competitive green fees and membership rates. “We did a full market analysis . . . and set our rates to as good or better than our competitors,” said Dodd. Year to date the course is up $60,000 from 2012, said Dodd. The profit expected at the fiscal year-end is a conservative estimate that takes into account the general downturn of the sport and potential bad weather, he said. Ultimately, Ledgeview’s three-year strategic plan is to become completely debt free, and then profitable, he added.

APD collects WMD during weapons amnesty campaign

ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

bbotsford Police Department was called out to deal with a weapon of mass destruction during the gun amnesty campaign last month. A resident called up police and asked officers to come by and retrieve a five-foot long missile located at the home. The APD, along with police departments across the province, were collecting unauthorized or unwanted guns or weapons in June to reduce the number of firearms within communities and to curb the danger of weapons finding their way into the criminal market. While all sorts of weapons are turned in during such campaigns, a missile is little out of the ordinary, said Const. Ian MacDonald. The military rocket was jet black with a red nose tip. “I’m not sure what type it is or how it was launched,” he said. “I don’t know if it is supposed to be shot from an airplane or what.” The resident came into possession of the military souvenir about a decade ago from a relative who was a former member of the military. “That family member acquired the missile while deployed overseas,” said MacDonald. “Although you have to wonder how he got that home.” Officers were called out to verify the object was indeed a missile, and to take custody of weapon, he said. The APD contacted the Canadian Forces, which sent personnel out to retrieve and transport the weapon safely. The missile isn’t the only military armament taken in by the APD. In 2011, a family turned over a rocket launcher and cache of guns to the APD. The family had also inherited the functional 1970s-era combat weapon after the death of a relative who collected firearms and military artifacts “The rocket launcher was a surprise but a missile is even bigger,” said MacDonald.

Discharge bylaw needs cleaning up

I

n the end, cooler heads prevailed at Tuesday’s District of Mission council meeting, and, particularly when guns are involved, cool heads are imperative. Council voted in favour of striking up an advisory committee to study the contentious proposed firearms discharge bylaw and the bylaw itself has been indefinitely shelved. Council members should be applauded on numerous levels. First and foremost, they listened to the constituents when the constituents spoke. That is an important aspect of responsible government. What those against the bylaw have to realize – and the majority do – is that council was not throwing together this bylaw simply to anger gun-toting civilians. Council had the safety of others in the forefront with this bylaw, and kudos for that. Bravo for taking a proactive stance, trying to put an end to the foolishness before someone takes a bullet to the head while fly-fishing on Sayers Lake. Far too often, it takes casualties for governments to amend laws, or build crosswalks or divide highways. It’s refreshing to hear of a level of government acting upon something without the pressure of a grieving widow, widower, mother or father spearheading

TERRY FARRELL

CommenTerry the movement. Sound like fear mongering? It’s reality. Unless things change up in the Mission “back 40” there will, one day, be a frontpage story about an innocent geo-cacher or hiker being hit by “friendly fire.” That said, council discovered – quite emphatically – that a total ban of discharging firearms within the municipal boundaries is not the answer. Now, for the solution. Start with the area itself. From all accounts, it is becoming quite the eyesore. Forestry workers pick up shell casings “by the thousands” every time they go up there. Old couches and appliances are brought out for target practice. Garbage is strewn about by weekend partiers who do not care about the place. Here’s a suggestion: Clean it up. Take some pride in your playground. No, you didn’t make the mess. We get that. But one very effective way to show council you want to keep the status quo is

by raising the bar, yourself. By showing council that you care about the area, and consider it an actual facility, rather than a hillbilly hangout, you achieve empowerment. As for the entire discharge issue, there are options. It’s a large area. Perhaps the shooting can be limited to a certain block, away from where the hikers, geocachers and anglers convene. Perhaps a seasonal ban could be scheduled: No shooting from the May long weekend to Labour Day. The major hunts are not happening then, and those are likely the busiest months out there for non-guntoting people. Maybe all it will take is for the RCMP to set up a few staggered CounterAttack-like campaigns, to deter the rabble-rousers who go up there with illegal arms and shoot up the cedar trees. Such options are exactly what the proposed advisory board will draw up. And of course, there’s still the option of an outright ban on discharging firearms. But if those using the area most take it upon themselves to clean up after not only themselves, but also all those who abuse the area, it will show decision-makers that you care; that you’re not part of the problem. You are part of the solution.

ith school behind us and the inevitable summer parties stretching ahead, it’s a good time to give parents a nudge about not providing their kids with access to alcohol. Every year, area hospitals treat hundreds of teenagers for health problems and accidents related to the effects of alcohol. The vast majority of those stats relate to alcohol poisoning. Young brains are not fully formed until approximately the age of 20 or 21. Recent research suggests that young binge drinkers – and binge drinking is the typical pattern – can permanently damage the part of the brain that moderates behaviour in social situations. In other words: lose control at a young age and you dramatically increase the odds of always being at risk of losing control. Knowing this, of course, our health authority and the police wish to limit societal damage. Dealing with it after the fact is expensive both in human and financial terms. Nevertheless, we have to wonder why the health authority claims 80 per cent of Lower Mainland teenagers get alcohol from adults. This sensationalism lacks context. “Adults” are not always parents. Surely older brothers, sisters and friends are the more likely source of bootlegged liquor. We have trouble believing that the vast majority of parents are buying fruity vodka drinks for their underaged kids every Friday night. And has anyone heard of fake ID? It’s an industry in high school. Frankly, booze is readily available to any teen who wants it. Modelling how to handle it is as important as who you hand it to.

‘Field of Dreams’ approach Editor, the Times:

Does Abbotsford have an industrial land development strategy? Recently, Abbotsford city council supported [the idea] of rezoning of 225 acres of farmland for industrial use. This is in addition to the nearly 600 acres of vacant industrial land currently available in the city. Is this decision based on an industrial land development strategy that identifies the competitive advantages Abbotsford offers different industrial sectors, or is this just a “Field of Dreams” approach – the more land we make available the more likely industry will come? The “provide land and they will come” approach has not worked well in the past. In the mid-1970s, land on the west side of Sumas Way was rezoned from farming to industrial. Industry did not come – today most is in big box retail. In the late 1990s, Abbotsford hoped a growing airport would attract aviationbased industries – no aviation industrial businesses came. In 2005, the City in The Country plan called for ‘employment lands’ for a growing population. Some 440 acres of farmland was conditionally rezoned from farming to industrial use. The industrial sector still did not come. The only industrial sector to show steady growth in the last decade is the agriculture industrial sector. The “Field of Dreams” approach does not seem to be working. Currently there is a higher percentage of available industrial land not being used for industrial purposes than there is farmland not being used for farming. It would be helpful to have an industrial land development strategy before eroding the production base of the one industrial sector – agriculture – that is strategically based here.

He’s free; she never will be Editor, the Times:

I was deeply disturbed to read about the release of “high-risk sex offender,” Raymond Lee Caisse, convicted of robbery, unlawful confinement and rape with a weapon. He served (22) years. Meanwhile, his victim is serving a life sentence. How can we call it “justice” when the victim is subject to more punishment than the offender? This poor woman has to live every day of the rest of her life with the horrific thing that happened to her. I sincerely hope she has

And the impact on the rest of your life, your fears, your relationships, etc. is profound. If the victim faces a lifetime of suffering, so should the offender. Why is he free when she is not? Sherilyn Klassen Abbotsford

Thanks again to local heroes Editor, the Times: I was pleased to read your Abbotsford Times article: Abbotsford men recognized for heroic actions in pit bull attacks. (June 27) The 80-year-old mentioned in the article was myself. I was washing my car in the driveway of my home when the dogs attacked. I didn’t see them until they began their attack and it was the quick action of Adam Pampalon that saved me from much more serious injury. I had tried to locate and thank him but was told that due to privacy issues, his name was not able to be given to myself. Without their quick action, I believe the Valley Royals Track Club may have been short a coach. I was shaken up by the attack but got off very lightly in comparison to the lady that was attacked. I rode with her to the hospital and she was definitely in bad shape. The story behind those dogs reason for being in the house that they escaped from is another story. But in any case, I would like to express my sincere thanks to both Adam and Byron Wiebe. Gerry Swan Abbotsford

Gov’t obliged to consult Bible Editor, the Times:

Again I feel compelled to respond to Kevin Francis’ drivel about his standing up for the ‘right thing’ including “coming to the defence of the LGBT” (June 27 Letter to the Editor). In issues where no moral principle is involved, the ‘right thing’ can be decided simply by a show of hands or public referendum. However, when a moral issue is involved, government is obliged to search the scriptures to see what God has to say. Why? Because Canada’s laws are founded

upon principles of right and wrong (Biblical principles) that recognize the supremacy of God. Parliament declares what’s legal and illegal; God declares what’s right and wrong – not Ken Francis or some misguided Supreme Court judge. For something to be legal it must also be moral, and this is what constitutes the ‘right thing’. Obviously gay rights and abortion don’t fit the criteria. Sins never do, so they can’t be the ‘right thing’. The Charter’s preamble, our national anthem, and the Queen’s Coronation Oath all oblige government to pass morally-correct laws, not those that are PC. Indeed, how can we expect God to keep our land glorious and free if we reject his moral principles in our laws and ‘human rights’? Miff Crommelin Mission

Exactly whom is Harper assisting? Editor, the Times:

How cynical! I think one must be absolutely cynical – or completely daft – to take as partners in helping the poor of the third world the Canadian large corporations and mining companies exploiting their resources. Yet it is again the approach taken by the Harper government by recently amalgamating CIDA under the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development. Whether cynical or daft, the Harper government is diverting Canadian development assistance for the poor to companies whose interests are opposite – in principle and practice – to the well-being of these poor people. There is lots of well-known evidence and testimony in this regard. Mr. Harper knows the role played by multi-nationals in the impoverishment of several third-world countries. He is thus making another dangerous right turn in favour of the very rich, whose first victims, in the truest sense, will be the poorest of the world. I hope pressures from the public, from opposition parties and from members of their own party will force Harper Conservatives to change their minds towards CIDA and to adopt a much more humane approach towards the poorest. Assistance to the poor is fragile and must go to the poor, not to large corporations. Bruno Marquis Gatineau QC

– TIMES FILE

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford finished fifth in the Web.com United Leasing Championship in Evansville, Ind. on Sunday, with a 9-under par 279.

bbotsford golfer Adam Hadwin just missed making it into a fiveplayer sudden-death playoff at the Web.com United Leasing Championship in Evansville, Ind. on Sunday. He finished the four-day tournament with a 9-under-par 279, just two strokes behind the eventual winner Ben Martin of the U.S. Martin and three others were all tied for the lead at 277 after regulation and met in sudden death on Monday. “To get any sort of finish in the Top 10 is great,” said Hadwin on the phone from Toronto on Tuesday. He admitted there was some disappointment in the way he finished. “Knowing how many opportunities I had to make birdie and didn’t, it was a little disappointing.” Hadwin shot 70-71-67-71, leaving him two behind the four leaders. The Midwest has been plagued by stormy weather for weeks, which also

impacted the championship, causing a four-hour rain delay on Sunday (thereby forcing the carry-over for the playoff). Hadwin had played six holes before the delay, and seemed to gain momentum once back on the course at the Victoria National Golf Club. “I had a great back nine on Sunday,” he said. “Even before this event I played pretty well this year. If I got something going, I was able to keep it going.” When he had a couple bad holes, he was able to get himself back on track, he said. Hadwin was non-committal as to whether he would be competing in the RBC Canadian Open July 25-28 at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ont. He did not enter in any qualifiers for the event, where in 2011 he finished tied for fourth at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver. The year before at the RBC event in Toronto, he finished as the top Canadian, tied for 37th. If he is not chosen to receive a sponsorship exemption to play in this year’s event, he will instead play in a Web. com tournament in Boise, Id. on the weekend of the Canadian Open.

Five birdies and an eagle offset by double bogeys

bbotsford golfer Kaleb Fisher is in the hunt at the BC Golf Junior Boys’ Championship at Revelstoke Golf Club. Fisher followed up Tuesday’s opening round 74 with a 72 on Wednesday, to sit at 2 over par (146) on the 6,537yard par-72 track. Fisher had a sporadic day on Wednesday, firing a round of even par, despite have two bogeys and two doublebogeys. He also had five birdies and an eagle. Fisher plays out of Mead Gardens Golf Club in Pitt Meadows. The cut for the Junior Boys’ Championship is the top 70 and ties and as of press time, Fisher was the only Abbotsford golfer under the cut line. He was tied for 18th. Seventeen-year-old Nick Guenther of Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Club sits at 154, 10-over par after two days. He fired a 76 on Tuesday and a 78 on Wednesday. Jordan Morford, also of Ledgeview, struggled on Day 2, shooting an 83 after an impressive opening round of 1-under-par 71. The 12stroke swing leaves him also sitting at 154 Cody Stewart, who plays out of Pagoda Ridge Golf Course in Langley, shot 81 on Tuesday and 79 on Wednesday for a two-day total of 160, 16 over par. Nathan Bahnman, who golfs out of Cultus Lake Golf Club, had an opening round of 9-over-par 81 on Tuesday. His round 2 score was not posted as of press time. Jared Dutoit of Kimberley held the clubhouse lead late Wednesday afternoon with a two-day total of 139.

Abbotsford’s Harv Bergen from Lifecycles Bike Shop avoids roots and stumps on the Bear Mountain course in Mission on June 23.

hile parts of Canada were still subjected to heavy flooding, local mountain bikers scrambled for high ground for the third race of the Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association’s grassroots Trailblazer series recently. Rains stopped just in time for the event, held on Bear Mountain in Mission on June 23. The races are classified as enduro and they differ from traditional downhill in that the course is longer, involves more pedaling and has more than one segment. And unlike cross-country, racers are only timed on the downhill section of the course. They can pedal or push their bike up the hill at a comfortable pace. Aja Philps of Chilliwack was the top female rider, completing the course in 24 minutes, 39 seconds. PJ Hunton of Maple Ridge put up the fastest time on the mountain, with a blazing time of 20 minutes 20 seconds. It was a great day for riders of all skill levels, from beginner to experienced, who came from around the Lower Mainland to share in the camaraderie, friendly atmosphere, and challenge some rough and rooty trails. There was something for everyone, with kid’s and beginner level races, rider development lessons and categories for recreational and elite riders.

How does God speak to me? T

he first doubt most people wrestle to the ground is their belief in a God they can’t see with their physical eyes. Whether it’s the evidence of creation, one’s inner moral compass, the hunger for eternity, or the desire to right our spiritual conscience, there seems to be plenty of reason to make that leap of faith. God does exist. It’s amazing how many people haven’t resolved this basic premise of defending the existence of God, and yet, still hold to a form of Christian faith. To that end I would call it a cultural and non-transferable faith. It’s a comfortable faith

JOHN THOUTENHOOFD

Faith that matters because its principles work and makes for a successfilled life. It’s tough to pass that kind of faith on to the next generation and there is ample statistical evidence to show that this group isn’t going to be as comfortable in not addressing this initial doubt of God’s existence. It makes for intense con-

versations between the two generations. To borrow a Biblical proverb, it’s like “iron sharpening iron.” You have the seasoned faith of a church-goer and the integrity of an unashamed inquirer forging out the truth, and in the end I am convinced they are both the better for it. God does exist. In my journey of tackling this question of God’s communication to me, I only have four options available. He could speak to me directly in my language; it could be a written communication; He could speak to me through feelings; and He could speak to me through my mind, which I would call

my inner conscience. Now I have a decision to make. Either God is trying to speak to me all the time, or He really isn’t around and has left me in silence. Choosing silence would leave me all alone ultimately, ascribing wonder to meaninglessness. In faith I have chosen to believe in a God who has revealed Himself in absolutely everything . . . and for some amazing reason desires to connect with me, one of His many creations. God speaks to me. ■ John Thoutenhoofd is a young adult life coach with Central Heights Church.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
