Mayor ready for trash ‘fight’ Metro to decide how and where to burn garbage

Kevin MILLS and Jeff NAGEL Black Press

If Metro Vancouver wants a fight over the proposal to burn trash, Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman is ready to engage. He is “furious” at the news that Metro wants to move forward by the end of March with a call for private partners to express inter-

est in a plan to build new in-region waste-to-energy plants. Last summer, Metro secured the province’s approval of its solid waste management plan, which included incinerating waste. But Banman said Metro was told by the province to “negotiate in good faith” with neighbouring communities in the Valley, including Abbotsford, which are concerned

about the environmental effects of burning garbage, particularly in terms of Valley air quality. “They’ve chosen just to do whatever they feel like, and if they want a fight on their hands, they’ve got one. Tell them to put their gloves on because they’re going to need them,” he said. Banman has met with other memContinued on A5

Banman: ‘This is bullying’ Regional district wants consultation on incineration plan From A1

bers of the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) who confirmed that no consultations have yet commenced. “They haven’t consulted with us … there’s a report going to the province (from the FVRD). The city will be sending a letter to the province. It’s appalling their actions. It’s not how you treat your neighbours ... we’re going to do absolutely everything we can to fight this. This is not consultation, this is bullying,” said Banman. The Abbotsford mayor is also upset with the provincial government for letting the process go this far. “The province needs to step up to the plate and basically back up what they said they would do.” He wants Victoria to push Metro to consult with the FVRD. He said both Mission Mayor Ted Adlem and Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz (who is also the chair of the FVRD) feel the same way. Gaetz said she is disappointed and surprised by Metro’s actions. “Minister Terry Lake said there needed to be consultation with FVRD before construction began and … I think RFP (request for proposals) is the first stage of construction,” said Gaetz. She believes there will be no opportunity to back up after the proposals have gone ahead. Gaetz added that the Fraser Valley remains unanimous in saying “this is not good for our fragile airshed.” Earlier this week, new Metro board chair Greg Moore predicted there will be intense interest from international companies that want to partner with the region to showcase the evolving technologies to convert garbage into energy.

Metro Vancouver presently trucks 500,000 tonnes of garbage to Cache Creek annually. “I think we’ll all be surprised by the number of companies that will put their names forward,” Moore said. The region already has one incinerator in south Burnaby that burns nearly 300,000 tonnes a year, but it wants additional wasteto-energy capacity to handle another 500,000 tonnes of garbage so it can stop trucking that amount east to the Cache Creek regional landfill. Moore hopes most of the key issues can be settled by the end of March, paving the way for a call for private partners to step forward. Rather than an open call for bids to handle all 500,000 tonnes, Moore expects Metro may

carve some out – perhaps 100,000 tonnes – that would be reserved for emerging technologies that claim to gassify or use other processes other than combustion to convert garbage with almost no emissions. Metro’s greenest-minded civic leaders have been pushing to give a leg up to those options, because a wide-open call would likely be won by proposals for conventional incineration, which is low-cost and established. “There’s a general understanding that the emerging technology isn’t scalable to the size we need yet,” Moore said. Moore also noted Metro may have need for more waste-to-energy capacity after the initial plants are built. The flow of garbage going to the Vancouver Landfill in Delta – now around 500,000 tonnes – is supposed to be gradually cut down to less than 100,000 tonnes a year by 2020 as waste reduction and recycling strategies improve. Also to be decided is whether Metro would own new plants – it owns the Burnaby incinerator but contracts out operation – or if they would be financed, built and owned by a private firm that would charge Metro a per tonne disposal fees. If the latter, Metro would have to commit to a long-term garbage supply contract. Nor is it clear yet exactly where the new incinerators might be built, although sites in New Westminster and on Tsawwassen First Nation land have been raised publicly in the past, and some Surrey politicians are keen to host a waste-to-energy plant in their city. An alternate location is a former pulp mill on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, where Covanta Energy wants to build an incinerator that could take Metro waste. That could be the ultimate choice to address Fraser Valley concerns, but it may be more costly for Metro because of the need to barge waste there.

NewsBytes CAR HIT BY TRAIN A 77-year-old Surrey man is fortunate to be alive after his car was struck by a train east of Mission early Thursday morning. The man’s car became stuck on the train tracks at the crossing near Hawkins Pickle Road and Bell Road just after 3 a.m. “The elderly male had the good sense to immediately get out of his vehicle when he saw the train approaching, preventing him from serious or fatal injuries,” said Mission RCMP Cpl. Sharon Siluch. The train hit the Dodge Caravan, sending it 400 metres down the tracks, destroying it on impact. The man told police that he had been driving and had been lost for four hours when he became disoriented. He turned onto what he thought was a side road when, in fact, it was train tracks. When he tried to turn his vehicle around, he became stuck.

ANOTHER CROSSWALK ACCIDENT Another accident at a crosswalk is a reminder that drivers and pedestrians need to be more cautious, says Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald. Two women, both 20, were struck by a Dodge Caliber on Tuesday at about 2:45 p.m. The vehicle was heading west on Simon Avenue and was making a left turn onto Trethewey Street, while the women had the right-of-way in the crosswalk, MacDonald said. Both women had minor injuries. A 12-year-old boy suffered serious lower body injuries when he was hit by a garbage truck on Jan. 4 while using a crosswalk at the corner of Bevan Avenue and Ware Street.

Slow growth predicted Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford can expect only limited growth in the coming year, according to Helmut Pastrick, chief economist for Central 1 Credit Union. With council beginning budget deliberations, Pastrick was brought in Monday night to give his expert opinion on what lies ahead for the city and province. He said Abbotsford’s 2011 employment numbers were down about 3.5 per cent. “2011 was not a good year ... employment fell in 2011, the unemployment rate went up to about nine per cent.� He noted the figures are from Statistics Canada and based on the Abbotsford/Mission census metropolitan area (CMA). Abbotsford accounts for about 80 per cent of the CMA. Goods producing services – agriculture, construction, manufacturing – saw a “bit of a down performance� in 2011. In the service industry, the larger sector

of the economy, there was also a decline. Population growth has also slowed in Abbotsford, to 1.4 per cent in 2010. “If I were to estimate the number for 2012 ... I’d probably put it down to 1.2 per cent. It’s a similar story in the rest of the province. “Job growth in B.C. hasn’t been very good this year, less than one per cent as a whole ... I put growth at somewhere around two per cent for B.C. So, a rather mediocre performance.� He said much of the job growth was in Metro Vancouver, rather than the Fraser Valley. He also predicted the Bank of Canada, which kept its target interest rate at one per cent during its last meeting in December, would “remain on the sideline� until the spring of 2013. “I do expect rates to increase in 2013 ... when we see better economic growth play out in the U.S. and over to Canada, then the Bank of Canada will begin

to make its first move towards a more normal level of interest rates.� Most economists do expect growth to pick up in the U.S. over the coming years, said Pastrick. “There is a lot of pent-up demand in the U.S. economy, particularly on the part of consumers.� On a world-wide scale, Pastrick expects a slow to moderate growth scenario. “The global economy, of course, is in a slow patch. We see many problems, particularly eminating out of Europe.� But there is potential for recovery in the future. “I would say Abbotsford’s long-term growth, in my view, is positive. If we look back at Abbotsford in the last two or three decades, growth has outpaced most municipalities in the Lower Mainland ... Certainly there is an ebb and flow to economic activity and we are currently in one of those ebb periods.�

‘There is no safe street drug’ From A5

Police Const. Ian MacDonald. Staff Sgt. Mike Bossley of Calgary Police Service’s drug unit said these deaths are a “prime example� of what can happen when people gamble with drugs. “You never know what is in your drug: yesterday it was MDMA, today’s it PMMA and tomorrow it could be something else. There is no safe street drug, and no safe dose of a street drug.� There have been three recent ecstasy-related

incidents involving Abbotsford people. Tyler Miller, 20, died Nov. 27 after taking ecstasy recreationally with friends. Cheryl McCormack, 17, passed away on Dec. 22 – three days after ingesting ecstasy at a sleepover with friends who were using the drug to aid in weight loss. And a 24-year-old woman is recovering in intensive care after taking several ecstasy pills on New Year’s Eve. Two women from Vancouver, both 22, have also died in recent weeks.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Cable water park

Should the city use $2.3 million in gas tax funding to pursue a $3.3M trail plan through Abbotsford?

As I have stated very clearly many times we are not against a cable park being erected somewhere in Abbotsford, what we are opposed to is this group and proposal if approved would put an end to our sport and the FVWSC club that has put 16 years of volunteer time into the sport of waterskiing and wakeboarding at Albert Dyck Park. Dave Miller

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

There is competition everywhere for nature’s resources. With all the H2O we have in the northwest you would think that a commercial enterprise would dig a new hole somewhere for their cable park. Why steal yours? Gino Romero

If you are under 30 years of age, have you ever tried the drug ecstasy?

To the planners of the park, I wish you luck in aquiring a site for cable, wherever it may be. To the skiers that are so desperately holding onto a dying sport, I also wish you good luck. Justin Lamoureux

YES: 25% NO: 75%

Worrying is a worrisome thing Andrew

Holota

On Point My resolution is not to worry as much in 2012. You see, worrying is something in which I invest a considerable amount of spare time. I’m not sure why. In the great big scheme of things, I don’t have all that much to worry about. Secure job (maybe), great family (no doubt), decent health (so far). No wars, no pestilence, no plagues of locusts. So then, why worry? Most of it is has to do with the job. When you do what I do for a living, there’s lots of stress. What will people think? Was it the right call? For that matter, what is “right?” What did I forget to check? That’s a biggie… When you’re worrying

about a lot of things, sometimes you forget what else you have to worry about. And that’s worrisome. Worrying takes up valuable time, though, and I’m all about time management. I have to be. Generally, I just don’t have the time to worry, unless I’m multi-tasking, and worrying is one of the tasks. So, I do the majority of my worrying between about 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Nothing else to do at that time except sleep. Hence, my worrying doesn’t get in the way of more important things. I wake up and start thinking, and if I think long enough, ultimately that leads to something to be anxious about. Mind you, losing sleep isn’t good, either. Makes me worry about my health. In fact, all this worrying is undoubtedly unhealthy. Now there’s something worthy of concern. Sometimes, when I run out of things to stress about, I make them up. For example, not long ago I spent the weekend worrying about a column I wrote. I was recounting recol-

lections from junior high, which ought to be rather benign. But I suddenly realized that what I had written about my junior high viceprincipal was actually the principal. And the principal I remembered was actually the vice-principal at

When you’re worrying about a lot of things, sometimes you forget what else you have to worry about. my secondary high school. So, that got me to worrying what else I hadn’t recalled correctly. I began to question whether my memory of teachers smoking in their staff room was actually accurate. I had this vivid mental image of standing there, in the doorway, talking to a teacher, and the room behind him was wafting in smoke.

However, with enough self-doubt, I almost had myself believing it was a false memory. I had somehow conjured it up in my mind over the decades. Maybe I was hallucinating from all the heavy drug use in my early years. But that didn’t make sense, since I didn’t have any heavy drug use. Or at least, I don’t remember any. Well, that really got me to worrying. What else have I forgotten? It’s pretty unsettling to start doubting all your life memories... But I didn’t get any calls telling me I was imagining things. So it must have been the way I remembered. And then it occurred to me that if I’m not careful, I could easily conclude that if no one tells me I’m wrong, I must be right. I know people who are like that. And even if you tell them they’re wrong, they’re still right. Sometimes, I’d like to be like that. It sure would make life a lot easier. Anyway, don’t worry about me. I’ll be alright. It’s you I’m worried about.

Best equipment for armed forces

In regard to an article that was written about three weeks ago, concerning the F35 stealth fighter. Like most new equipment, it has bugs in the system and can be worked out, like the Avro Arrow. But what I’d like to express is you never send men into harm’s way unless

they’ve got the best possible means of protecting themselves. The Liberals decimated our armed forces. What most people don’t realize that we just about lost World War II because this country’s armed forces were poorly equipped. If it hadn’t been

for the U.S., we would have lost. Only a fool wants a war, but in this troubled world, it’s only a matter of time when one is going to start. If my sons or grandsons or granddaughters are called up to do their duty, I want them to have the best possible equipment money can buy.

We’ve been caught twice with our pants down. You’d think we learned a lesson, but obviously we haven’t. I just hope the man who wrote that article hasn’t got family in the armed forces. Norm E. Martin

Taxes are above inflation rate and beyond what many can afford B.C. municipal elections are over, and Langley Township’s mayor got an automatic pay increase of 12.6 per cent and the councillors received a 19 per cent raise. This during a down economy and an unproven record of performance. If they make a financial mess of running the municipality, they still get their automatic pay increases, while cash-strapped residents get more tax increases. Public leaders should lead by example. If they get massive increases, should not

the public servants deserve similar increases? Where does this leave approximately 65 per cent of the population who bear the burden of increased taxes? The greedy executives and leaders in this world have brought on the universal troubled economy. The leaders in some of the European countries want their workers to take pay and benefit cuts to stabilize their economies. If this wealthy class would set the example and reduce their expectations and

over-abundance, the workers might also be willing to accept some reductions. Our taxes in Abbotsford in the past years have risen far above the inflation rate and beyond what many can afford, some of whom have had to accept reduced incomes. I hope and pray that our new mayor and council will be wise with their decisions and lead by example, and that it will not be necessary to have a taxpayers’ revolt. Art Hoock

Everyone must pay fair share Property assessments are starting to arrive and the anticipation of increased property taxes is gaining momentum. I think we can breathe a huge sign of relief knowing that as a community united in solidarity as never before in our history, we prevented a huge catastrophe by rejecting the proposed mega water project. Reasonable taxes are inevitable and we must now get on with resolving other critical issues in our community.

First and foremost we need to replace our antiquated police station in order to better accommodate those men and women who are dedicated to our well being. We also have to do something to plug the loophole that has been enabling multiple families to live in a single residence and thereby evade their tax responsibilities. Taxes can be bearable just as long as everyone is paying their fair share. John Skorupa

Students at Abbotsford Christian secondary load bags of shoes into a trailer. The Grade 8 service learning project accumulated 18,000 pairs from thrift stores and community donations, which are now on their way to Guatemala. All will be sold, some as recycling product and some as footwear, and the proceeds will be used to fund water purification projects. Organizer Kristin Schut, an educator at the school, said a surprising number of the shoes are ‘perfectly fine.’

ON THE FRASER

A man who was sentenced last year for using bear spray on staff at an Abbotsford grocery store has been convicted in another case. Brian Michael Pullin, 31, was found guilty last Friday in Abbotsford provincial court of possession of stolen property under $5,000, possessing a firearm without a licence, possessing a firearm contrary to order and breach of probation. He received a sentence of two years less a day in jail, one year probation, and a lifetime firearms ban. Pullin was pulled over by police in a stolen Honda Acura in the area of Clearbrook Road and Fir Avenue on Aug. 16, 2011. After he stopped the car, Pullin jumped out and ran off. A sawedoff shotgun was found in a backpack on the passenger seat. A police dog tracked Pullin to his hiding spot under a trailer.

Brian Pullin appears in surveillance video at the Real Canadian Superstore in June 2010, when police were looking for him. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said Pulliin is a prolific offender, with 47 convictions to his name. These include a 15-day jail sentence and two years’ probation after he pleaded guilty in May 2011 to assault with a weapon, fraud and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. A warrant was

issued for Pullin’s arrest in June 2010 after he tried to used a fraudulent gift card at the Real Canadian Superstore gas bar on Gladwin Road. Pullin was nabbed outside by store staff. As four employees were escorting him across the parking lot, he pulled out a can of bear spray and turned it on them before escaping.

He was arrested three weeks later at a home on Peardonville Road. Pullin’s numerous other prior convictions include weapons offences, obstructing a police officer, breach of probation, assault with a weapon, theft and drug possession. They occurred in Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam and Abbotsford.

McBarge back on table

A13

Floating restaurant greenlighted for public hearing Janua ry 24 at 7 pm th

Adrian MACNAIR Black Press

The Sturgeon’s on the Fraser project received new life Monday evening, as Mission district council fulfilled an election promise to bring “McBarge” to public hearing. The proposed $10-million floating restaurant and marina at the foot of Horne Street had been stalled under the previous council, as the planning department considered the application incomplete without acquiring adjacent land for parking, referred to as the uplands. Mayor Ted Adlem moved that the previous CD-21 zone for the foreshore area of McBarge be rescinded of first and second reading, so that the new incarnation, CD-23 zone, could pass first and second reading and proceed to public hearing, now slated for Jan. 30. Adlem said dur-

Kindergarten Information Night We are the only school in Mission to offer Kindergarten (1/2 or full time) DL Kindergarten Home School Kindergarten An artist’s illustration shows the ‘McBarge’ proposal in Mission, on the shore of the Fraser River. ing question period Monday evening that even if the foreshore zoning is approved, a second zoning application and public hearing would still be needed for the uplands. That would require the developer, Howard Meakin, to either acquire or come to an agreement with the present landowner for the 0.67 hectares at the former Meeker Cedar Mill site. The whole project had become a chicken-egg paradox, since Meakin was reportedly reluctant

to acquire the land without approval of the project, while the district would not approve the project without a land use plan for parking. During question period former councillor Mike Scudder, who presided over the first application for McBarge, asked whether staff in the planning department have since changed their opinion that the project was considered incomplete. But Chief Administrative Officer Glen

Feeling famous?

Robertson was quick to say it wouldn’t be fair to ask staff to provide an opinion. “One of the things we promised very loudly is that [McBarge] would go to public hearing,” said Adlem. Coun. Larry Nundal added that staff are paid to make recommendations, but ultimately decisions are made by the council. McBarge is currently moored east of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in Burrard Inlet.

The new head of the RCMP in B.C. is vowing to transform the culture of the force to ensure sexually harassed officers can safely blow the whistle on their tormenters and get help. A s s i s t a n t Commissioner Craig Callens took over as RCMP ‘E’ division commander last month amid a series of allegations of harassment by female officers that began late last year when former B.C. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Catherine Galliford went public with her own experience of being hounded by men in the force.

ment allegations has been timely enough or has been fulsome enough.” The RCMP’s E division is responsible for federal and provincial policing in B.C. and the Yukon and handles local policing except in cities with municipal forces, such as Abbotsford. It also plays a dominant role in integrated policing teams that work across jurisdictions. Callens is seeking advice from throughout the force to improve the reporting process so abused officers can be confident their complaints will be acted upon and they won’t face retribution. He said he’s interested not just in rooting out harassers, but also examining the response of those in the force, particularly immediate superiors, who have allowed it to

Gun and gang strategy

fester under their watch. “I will be equally interested in what kind of information the supervisor or the local leader or officer-in-charge of the detachment had and what he did about it.” Callens agreed the harassment disclosures have been the latest in a barrage of blows to the RCMP in this province – ranging from Robert Dziekanski’s Tasering death at Vancouver airport, to missteps in the investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton – that have pummelled the morale of officers. Despite that, he said public confidence in the force does not deserve to be eroded because an overwhelming majority of RCMP officers “do an exceptional job every day.” Callens also suggested Mounties don’t get enough credit, either for their greater transparency in recent years of disclosing incidents of officer misconduct, or for their support of external civilian oversight of police in those cases. “We embrace and look forward to external review and civilian oversight,” he said, adding he could not be more pleased that Richard Rosenthal has been named as B.C.’s first civilian police investigator. Rosenthal

is known for busting corrupt police in Los Angeles. Callens said the RCMP will intensify its push in 2012 to lead a province-wide gun and gang strategy involving all RCMP detachments and municipal forces. He said that will build upon the

We will be developing newer and more comprehensive strategies to deal with violent crime Callens creation of additional Combined Forces Special Enforcement Units – which coordinate antigang investigations – in Prince George and Kelowna. But he also argued B.C.’s anti-gang strategy of the last couple of years has been “very effective,” noting the number of gang-related murders fell from its peak of 35 in 2009 to 18 in 2010 and less than 10 last year. Long-term success against gang crime will depend more

on education and prevention, as well as rehabilitation of offenders, he said. Callens said the single biggest area of success in recent years for the Mounties has been their pursuit of intelligence-based crime reduction initiatives. “In almost all of our communities we have seen significant reductions in crime,” he said. Those gains come from using crime analysts to identify prolific offenders who officers can target, preferably for reform through other social services partners who can provide drug treatment and other support. Crime reduction strategies have gone from a pilot project tests in 2005 to “core business in every single detachment,” Callens said. “It remains a priority. We will be developing newer and even more comprehensive strategies to deal with violent crime and domestic violence in the years to come.” Callens, a third-generation Mountie with 26 years in the force, comes to the province’s top post after working in general duty, major crime and federal drug enforcement. He’s served in Prince George, Wells, Kamloops, Surrey and then at ‘E’ division headquarters in Vancouver.

A story of survival Gallery 7 Theatre is presenting Robinson Crusoe, a stage adaptation of Daniel Defoe’s classic adventure. Shipwrecked on a deserted island following a violent storm, explorer Robinson Crusoe experiences a crisis of faith and undergoes a spiritual and emotional transformation. His vision of the world shattered and his imperialist sense of entitlement dashed, Crusoe endures 26 years of complete isolation, surviving on the ship’s supplies and his own ingenuity. When he befriends a Caribe Indian, Crusoe discovers the power of friendship and experiences the value of acceptance in spite of differences. “We’re pulling out all the stops for this production,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7’s artistic director. “We’ve stretched our technical abilities to create a visually stunning theatre experience, a compelling emotional and spiritual journey that features real humanity and generous sprinklings of humour.” Directing Robinson Crusoe is Carissa Boynton, who directed last year’s production of Tuesdays with Morrie. Playing the title role is veteran actor Continued on A18

Mini bonspiel aids Campus of Care Curl for Care raises funds for community

v v 

The annual Curl for Care mini curling bonspiel, formerly known as Curl for Kids, will take place Sunday, Jan. 29, with partial proceeds going to the Dave Lede Campus of Care in Abbotsford. The event takes place at the Abbotsford Curling Club, 2555 McMillan Rd. Registration is $50 per person or $200 per four-person team and includes equipment, instructions, a buffet lunch and a chance to win prizes. All proceeds from the silent auction and door prizes go to the Campus of Care, currently under construction adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The project includes Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, the Abbotsford Hospice Society’s

adult hospice, and Matthew’s House, which offers respite care to children with severe disabilities. Preceding the mini bonspiel is a dance at the curling club on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 8 p.m. to midnight, featuring the classic rock band Topaz. Tickets are $20. This year’s bonspiel is held in memory of Scott Gmur, a resident of Abbotsford who lost his battle with melanoma on May 30, 2011.

Challenging weather still ahead Take steps to minimize damage to your gardens Thanks to La Nina, our winter so far has been milder and drier than usual. However, winter doesn’t end until March 20, so there could still be a real possibility of challenging weather ahead. We all have unhappy memories of the severe cold at the end of last February. The good news is we can take some steps to minimize the effects. The first suggestion I would like to make pertains to hardiness. Most of us know which hardiness zone we live in and should therefore be planting only those plants which will tolerate that zone. Certainly slight variations will exist, but as a rule of thumb, most of the plants zoned for your region will take the worst most winters have to offer. If you don’t know your zone, you can easily find out from a local nursery. Greater Vancouver is generally rated zone 7 and as you move east through the Valley, zone 6 is the norm. From experience, however, I know that no gardener worth her or his salt pays much attention to zones. Virtually all gardeners set out plants they know are not hardy in their region, but they insist that with a little extra protection these plants will survive. Unfortunately, that protection is not always applied until it’s too late. There are, however, some techniques that can add a few degrees of har-

Gardening diness to many plants. One thing I noticed after an early November cold spell three years ago was that plants growing in very well-drained sandy soil survived the cold with the least amount of damage. It seems that if a plant’s roots have had to work harder for moisture and food, the plant is tougher and stops growing earlier in the fall. As a consequence, its branches and buds become dormant earlier, preventing severe damage from the cold. These plants also tend to stay dormant longer and suffer far less root damage because with a lower moisture content, the soil is not moved about so much by the frost. Planting all your plants, particularly the softer ones, in well-drained sandy loam is a sure way to toughen them up. A further protection for more tender plants is a good mulching with fir or hemlock bark mulch or even with sawdust. Mulching makes an incredible difference both in summer and winter. It retains critical moisture necessary at both times of the year.

Immediately after a cold spell when the temperature is on the rise and the frost is coming out of the ground, it’s essential to get moisture back into our plants, especially for those planted under eaves. Soak the living daylights out of the foliage of broadleaved plants and thoroughly penetrate the root system with water. A good watering can really make quite a difference to the amount of damage to so many plants. Desiccation from cold, drying winter winds is another major problem. As if the severe wind on our more tender broadleaved plants, like aucubas, photinias, rhododendrons and azaleas is not bad enough, winter sunshine can burn their foliage. Not only is it important to create wind breaks around our softer plants, it’s also essential to keep winter sunshine off them in severe cold. We always winter our rhododendrons in a lath house that both shades them and acts as a wind break. One of the important things to do, particularly where plants are exposed to cold outflow winds, is to create a tripod of strong bamboo canes and wrap the plants with the new insulating cloth, ‘N-Sulate’, which can make an 8-10°C difference. It is also important to check bulbs and roots stored in garages and sheds to make sure they are insulated from severe cold and freezing.

Heat split first two games of road trip Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The first two games of a five-game road swing yielded ecstasy and agony for the Abbotsford Heat. The ecstasy came on Tuesday evening, as the Heat turned in one of their most dominant performances of the season in a 5-0 win over the San Antonio Rampage. Heat goalie Danny Taylor stopped all 26 shots he faced for his second shutout of the campaign, and five different Abbotsford players found the net. Heat captain Quintin Laing opened the scoring, finishing off a nice pass from Gaelan Patterson on a shorthanded two-on-one break just past the midway point of the first period. Late in the frame, Akim Aliu notched his third goal in five games as a member of the Heat, knocking home a loose puck on a goalmouth scramble. Krys Kolanos, with his teamleading 17th of the year, notched the lone goal of the second period on the power play, and Raitis Ivanans and Jon Rheault rounded out the scoring in the third. Wednesday’s date with the Texas Stars yielded the agony, as Colton Sceviour’s goal with 11.7 seconds left in the third period lifted the Stars to a 2-1 victory. With overtime looming, Sceviour and Scott Glennie broke in on a two-on-one, and Sceviour beat Heat goalie Joni Ortio for the game-winner. The game had been scoreless until late in the second period,

San Antonio Rampage photo

Heat winger Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond dropped the gloves with San Antonio’s Eric Selleck in Tuesday’s road win. when Taylor, the Heat’s starting keeper, had the puck fall out of his glove as he waited for a whistle. The Stars’ Stephen Schultz took advantage, knocking the puck into the net to give his team a 1-0 lead. After that miscue, Ortio started the third period for the Heat, as they worked to find an equalizer. Laing supplied it at the 10:55 mark, banking a shot from behind the Texas goal line in off the skate of goalie Andrew Raycroft. It was Laing’s sixth goal in his last eight games.

But in the waning seconds, Sceviour struck on the counterattack to stun the Heat. Terrific penalty killing was a constant for Abbotsford in both games – they snuffed all six Rampage power plays, and were perfect on seven man-disadvantage situations against the Stars. The 13for-13 streak enabled the Heat to overtake the Toronto Marlies for first place in the AHL’s penaltykill efficiency rankings – they’re operating at a 87.6 per cent clip this season.

The Heat (23-11-2-0, 49 points) came into Wednesday’s action with a chance to leapfrog the Oklahoma City Barons for first place in both the West Division and AHL overall standings, but failed to take advantage. They have another opportunity to make up some ground this weekend, as they visit OKC for a Saturday-Sunday set. The Heat’s next home games are Jan. 20-21, as they host the Charlotte Checkers at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

Prospects ranked by Central Scouting A trio of Abbotsford hockey prospects earned a mention in the NHL Central Scouting midterm rankings released on Wednesday. Devon Toews and Dalton Sward were both listed among the top North American skaters. Toews, a puck-moving defenceman ranked No. 181, h a s posted 18 points in 34 games w i t h the junior A TOEWS Sur rey Eagles this season. Sward, a gritty forward who plays for the WHL's Vancouver Giants, is ranked No. 188 after registering 19 points in 42 games. Mackenzie Skapski, a goalie with the Kootenay Ice, is rated 14th among North American netminders. He's posted a 6-3-1 record with a 3.10 goalsagainst average and a .889 save percentage, serving as the backup to fellow Abbotsford native Nathan Lieuwen. The 2012 NHL draft runs June 22-23 in Pittsburgh.

Abbotsford’s Ken Ikeda and the Canadian men’s gymnastics squad fell painfully short of qualifying a full team for the 2012 Summer Olympics. At the final qualification meet on Tuesday in London, England – host site for the 2012 Games – Italy edged Canada by a fraction of a point for the last berth in the 12-country Olympic field. The Canadians had required a topfour finish at the second-chance meet, which featured eight nations, but wound up fifth and will miss the Olympic team event for the first time since 2004. Canada will now be limited to just one individual competitor in the men’s gymnastics event. Canada’s six-member squad got off to a strong start but faltered on high bar and floor, two of its strongest events, and finished with 345.892 points. Great Britain

Abbotsford gymnast Ken Ikeda and the Canadian men’s gymnastics team fell just short of Olympic qualifying on Tuesday. (358.227 points), France (350.659), Spain (347.292) and Italy (346.334) rounded out the top four. “It’s extremely disappointing to come

so close to qualifying and then not make it,” Canadian program director Jeff Thomson stated in a press release. “But there were a number of sig-

nificant mistakes and those mistakes meant we didn’t make it.” At 29, Ikeda is the elder statesman on the Canadian squad. He’s a specialist on the pommel horse and parallel bars, and has been involved in two previous Olympics – he competed in Athens in 2004, and was an alternate in Beijing in ‘08. The Canadian team had come a long way since losing four members from the 2008 Olympic team to retirement, including veteran leader and 2004 individual gold medallist Kyle Shewfelt of Calgary. “I don’t believe there’s a single country in the world except the top three – China, Japan and the U.S. – that could lose four super gymnasts all at once as happened to our team after Beijing and still be this close to making it to the Olympics,” Thomson said.

Rotary in Abbotsford has accomplished many projects through these three clubs. Locally, they have built playgrounds, paid off the mortgage for Abbotsford Hospice, made contributions to the new Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre, the Salvation Army, the Food Bank, and Rotary Stadium to name a few. Globally, local Rotary clubs have shown strong support by sending wheelchairs to Mexico, sending portable living units to Haiti, sending books to schools in South Africa and to building schools in Afghanistan. So what is Rotary? It’s a diverse group of committed people from different backgrounds that have one common goal – to give back and make their local and global communities better. It’s all about “Service Above Self ”.

With the 2012 BC Winter Games set to start in Vernon next month, spirit is building in every community across British Columbia. The brainchild of Premier W.R. Bennett, the Games began in 1978 in Penticton. Since then, 38 communities across the province have hosted the Games, some of them more than once. More than 200,000 people have volunteered and more than 150,000 athletes have competed since it began. “One of the most important benefits of hosting a BC Games is how it brings a community together,” says Henry Pejril, president of the 2006 BC Summer Games in Kamloops. “There aren’t many opportunities like a Games that can capture the full cross-section of a community. The feeling of pride and accomplishment lasts in a host city for many years to come.” Many well-known athletes had their start at the BC Games, including Tour de France cyclist Ryder Hesjedal and 2010 Olympic women’s snowboarding cross gold medallist Maelle Ricker, who are among the

JOHNSTON HOGAN—Mary Theresa Died peacefully December 29, 2011. She was born in Toronto December 18, 1925. Her early years were spent living in Ontario, Vancouver, and Doreen, BC. She attended Ursuline College in Chatham, training as a Registered Nurse at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto and at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver. Her first RN position was in Williams Lake, BC. While there Mary Theresa purchased a stallion (Tony) that she would ride during her free time. When the time came to leave Williams Lake she freed Tony to run with the wild horses living in the region and for several years after an acquaintance reported seeing Tony running with his new herd. In 1951 Mary Theresa married James Hogan. In 1957 they quit their jobs and moved to Mexico to become artists, studying painting and photography at the Instituto Allende. In 1967 the family settled in Aldergrove, BC. Mary Theresa resumed her work as a RN at Riverview Psychiatric Hospital and managed the family’s 10-acre hobby farm. The farm was home to horses, cows, goats, geese, ducks, a donkey, cats, chickens and Maja Kennels (Beagles, Toy Poodles, and Keeshonds). Maja Kennels produced many CAN/US Champions. She truly loved being a nurse, a mother to four children, and a partner in life to her loving husband, James. She was predeceased by James, and sister Helen. She is survived by her brother John (Pat), her children Toireasa (Roger) Strong, James, Geralyn, and Eugene, her grandson Anton (Samantha), and her great-granddaughters Maretta and Shula.

“How do you know when you got it?” My dream is to add value to the lives of others. My action plan is in the oppor tunities that I have to serve others. I am committed to this purpose by dedicating my time and effor t to it. This four th question has us thinking about the result before it happens. Why wait when you can live your dream now. Nothing comes easy to us in life. Hard work brings us oppor tunities. I know that I am living my dream. I am passionate in in what I do. People tell me that they are encouraged through their experience with Dignity Memorial. They are encouraged through the things that we do for them. We create an experience

for our families. Grief is a horrible experience. In order to add value to our families and to the community we serve we need to be present for them. Death is an experience that we will all go through. It is something that has taught me to fulfill my dream. Do it like there is going to be no tomorrow.
