Among firms interested in building an incineration plant for Metro Vancouver is Covanta Energy, which has proposed a location in Gold River on Vancouver Island. The Covanta facility above is in Italy.

Last year, Abbotsford’s Clayton Ingle rappelled down the side of a 20-storey building in Vancouver and raised $2,850 for Easter Seals. In September, the vice-president of the Abbotsford Lions Club is hoping to top the $3,000 mark as he makes his fourth consecutive appearance at The Drop Zone. The charity event takes place each year in cities across Canada. Story on A7.

Metro Vancouver politicians soon face critical choices on how they pursue waste-toenergy incineration, now that the province has approved the region’s solid waste plan. A key issue – to be tackled this fall – is whether any new incinerator should be publicly owned and operated or outsourced to a private partner. A Metro-built facility would mean taxpayers pay directly for it – a price tag that could easily top $500 million – but the region would be able to sell the energy generated, offsetting much of the ongoing costs and maybe even turn a small profit. If a private partner instead finances, builds and runs the plant, Metro would avoid up-front costs and the risks of ownership but sign a longterm garbage-supply contract. The region would pay per-tonne garbage disposal fees, which would cover not just the construction and operating costs but also the partner’s profit margin and its potentially higher borrowing costs. Directors will likely debate whether Metro should keep the energy revenue for itself, how much that power might be worth in the future and whether Metro could scale down incineration if residents recycle and compost more than expected. “The business model is one thing we have to determine out of

and emerging wasteto-energy technology,” Moore said. Some directors warn those alternatives won’t stand a chance if the bidding is wide open to a mass-burn incinerator, which they expect to wield a big cost advantage. Vancouver councillors, who tried a year ago to ban mass-burn combustion from the waste plan, are expected to mount a similar push again. Moore said the board might opt to carve out part of the 500,000 tonnes of waste per year for proponents of alternative technologies, who wouldn’t have to bid against a conventional incinerator. That may lead to another choice – whether to go with a single plant or multiple ones. Metro is also expected to hire a third-party independent expert for advice in the coming decisions. A final decision on what will be built and where could be 18 months away, Metro officials say. While the politicians decide the framework for what might be built, Metro will also start consulting the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) to address concerns that toxic emissions will worsen air quality in the already polluted airshed. Environment Minister Terry Lake ordered the consultations and establishment of a joint working group of the two regions, directing Metro to take steps Continued on A7

‘Heightened awareness’ No specific risk here Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Police Department’s gang suppression unit (GSU) is at a “heightened awareness” about criminal activity in the community following the Kelowna shooting that killed Jonathan Bacon, 30, and injured four others. Sgt. Casey Vinet said the potential for retaliation is of concern in Abbotsford, and across the province, although there is no reason to believe this community is specifically at risk. “Having said that, we are well aware that violence can occur anywhere, anytime,” he said. Vinet said the APD has been communicating with partner agencies, including the Lower Mainland’s Integrated Gang Task Force, on current gang activity and the movement of criminals. None of the victims of Sunday’s shooting outside the Delta Grand Hotel currently resides in Abbotsford, but Bacon grew up in the community and lived here until moving to Port Moody in 2009. Police have not revealed where he had been living just prior to his death, but have said

Investigators are seeking information on this silver/green Ford, which is believed to have been used by the Kelowna shooters. it was not in Abbotsford. Also with Bacon in the targeted Porsche Cayenne were Larry Amero of the White Rock Hells Angels, and Independent Soldier James Riach, according to media reports. Amero is recovering in hospital, while Riach fled the scene. Two unidentified women were also injured. Vinet said he could not reveal specifics about the current gang situation in Abbotsford, only that the same groups identified in the past continue to be active. Higher profile drug arrests by the GSU in the last year have mainly consisted of members of the Duhre Group and the UN

Gang. Although police have not determined, or will not say, which group is responsible for Sunday’s shooting, there is speculation that either or both of those organizations could be behind the targeted Kelowna hit. Meanwhile, Darryl Plecas, a criminology expert at University of the Fraser Valley, predicts that retaliation will be not be as quick as most people believe, due to intense police scrutiny in the aftermath of the Kelowna shooting. He also believes that “this outrageous display of violence” does not signal a return to the

same level that occurred in the Lower Mainland in 2009, when gang shootings and murders were rampant. Since then, police have improved their ability to gather information and head off potential issues before they occur. In Abbotsford, for example, the 14-member GSU formed in spring 2010. By the end of the year, the unit had compiled a list of 183 gang members and associates active in the community, and staged 36 “disruptions��� of gang activities such as grow rips and abductions. Plecas said the Kelowna shooting is not a sign that police efforts are falling short. “They are making incredible inroads, but they’re still playing catch-up, if you will ... They don’t have enough resources to be on top of every gang that’s out there, but that will happen.” Police have said Bacon and his two brothers – Jamie, 26, and Jarrod, 28 – were associated with the Red Scorpion gang, which engaged in warfare on Lower Mainland streets with the rival UN Gang over control of the drug trade in 2008/09. OnTuesdayafternoon,Kelowna RCMP released a photo of the silver/green Ford Explorer that the shooter (or shooters) was Continued on A7

City commissions water survey Questions, results and cost to be revealed Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford residents are being asked for their opinions on the city’s water system and plans to create a new source at Stave Lake. A telephone survey, commissioned by the city, is being conducted by Acrobat Research Canada and was scheduled to be completed early this week. “We are doing some early polling to find out what residents are thinking at this moment,” said city manager Frank Pizzuto. While no details about the questions have been released, Pizzuto said the results, and the cost, will be made public at an upcoming council meeting. A list of the questions should also

regarding the public’s perception on the water issue, so they could address concerns leading up to the referendum. “There’s all sorts of misinformation out there.” Pizzuto said council did approve the overall mandate of a communication strategy around the new water source. However, “this specific initiative was not specifically approved by council.” Staff are looking to develop an “educational and awareness campaign to residents so they get good information to make an informed decision,” said Pizzuto. Several residents contacted by the pollsters have raised concerns about some of the questions, suggesting they may indicate a P3 bias.

GANGS AND GUNS STRATEGY B.C.’s two-year-old “gangs and guns” strategy is working, and the province will continue to do its share to maintain it, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond says. Bond issued a statement Tuesday after community leaders questioned whether federal funds for Kelowna’s 16-member anti-gang squad would continue beyond this fall. A similar unit was also set up in Prince George after a string of gang-related shootings in B.C., with a three-year commitment shared by the federal and provincial governments. “Over 200 organized crime and gang members and associates have been arrested and charged with more than 400 serious offences since we brought in the gangs and guns strategy in February 2009,” Bond said. Armed gang violence was being reported beyond Metro Vancouver by 2009. At that time, former premier Gordon Campbell announced the Kelowna and Prince George gang and weapon squads, along with $185 million to add 304 more cells to the overcrowded B.C. prison system. Later in 2009, B.C. moved to restrict the sale of body armour to law enforcement members and licensed security guards and private investigators.

FOR THE RECORD A story on the fatal shooting of Jonathan Bacon in Tuesday’s edition of the Abbotsford News incorrectly stated that his family home was still listed for sale. In fact, the home on Strathcona Court was sold in December 2010 to a family with no connections to the Bacons.

Rappelling for a reason Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Next month, Clayton Ingle plans to dangle from the top of a 20-storey building. While he admits to being an adventure seeker, there is another motive for the daring escapade. Ingle is the vice-president of the Abbotsford Lions Club and a major community supporter. On Sept. 13, he will take part in the annual Easter Seals Drop Zone in Vancouver. The Drop Zone is a fundraising event that has participants collect donations and then rappel down the side of a structure. The event takes place at the AXA building, located at 999 West Hastings in Vancouver. All funds raised go to Easter Seals and B.C. Lions Society for Children with Disabilities. Ingle first learned of the fundraiser on television and thought it was a good way to help out, and get an adrenaline rush.

Four targeted shootings locally this year

“I’m the kind of guy who, if someone says let’s do something crazy, I’ll just do it,” he said. His first experience with the fundraiser hooked him. This year marks the fourth time Ingle will rappel down a building. And, it was the Drop Zone challenge that got Ingle involved with the local Lions club. Now he’s looking for the community’s support. “I have lived in Abbotsford all my life and I am asking for anyone to donate any amount they want to this event so I can participate.” In order to qualify to rappel, each person must raise a minimum of $1,500. Ingle already has $1,160 in pledges, but is hoping to improve on his personal best of $2,850, raised last year. “I would be ecstatic if I was able to get a total of $3,000 or more.” The first time he attended the event, Ingle

suspected to be driving. Anyone who observed the vehicle during the weekend of Aug. 12-14 is asked to call the Kelowna detachment at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-5477 with details.

Violence down

Abbotsford was dubbed the “Murder capital of Canada” for the number of homicides that occurred in the city in 2008 and 2009, but police have

said an increased focus on tackling gang violence is responsible for reducing those numbers. There were six murders in Abbotsford in 2008 and 11 the following year, compared to four in 2010 and none so far this year. Also down are the number of shootings and violent assaults. The latest Stats Canada figures, released last month, showed that Abbotsford had recorded a 26 per cent drop in violent crime from 2009 to 2010.

said he had a slight “malfunction.” “I slipped and fell for what felt like 20 feet.” In reality, it was just a short distance before the safety equipment kicked in. “It’s really safe to do. They are very professional.” To donate to Ingle’s cause, visit thedropzone. ca Ingle also has a Facebook page at http:// www.facebook.com/?sk=pages#!/event. php?eid=142608609151078. The public is welcome to attend the event and watch all the participants rappel. About the cause: Easter Seals is committed to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities. Its fully accessible camps allow kids and youth to learn about themselves and the potential of their abilities.

Although there have been no homicides this year, there have been four targeted shootings: T Jan. 4, eight to 12 shots were fired at a home at 2504 Bradner Rd., narrowly missing a 25-year-old woman who had pulled into the driveway. T Feb. 20, 10 shots were fired at a home on Hope Road, where a family with no criminal background lived. A man who police believe was affiliated with the Duhre Group was the

intended target but lived in a different house on the same street. T March 11, there was a drive-by shooting in a home in the 32900 block of Gatefield Avenue which was occupied by two young children and four adults. T June 9, eight to 12 shots were fired at a home on Monteray Place which was owned by the parents of Shara Aram, who served a four-year manslaughter sentence for a 2003 shooting death.

Dispute could go to arbitration From A4

to address “reasonable” concerns of the FVRD. The two regions, at odds over the public health risks, have one year to agree on emission standards and environmental monitoring for any new incinerator. If they can’t agree, the dispute goes to arbitration. What counts as a “reasonable” objection? That’s unclear. But the pressure of arbitration and subsequent provincial approvals necessary for any plant could still allow Victoria to block inregion incineration, in response to the demands of Valley residents. Moore said he’s hopeful staff of both regional districts can look objectively at the issues. “Frankly, I’d like to try to take some of the politics out of it.” He said Metro is committed to using the best emissions control systems available.

8 Comment on any story online at abbynews.com or email newsroom@abbynews.com Published and printed by Black Press Limited 34375 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford.

A stance of ‘not here’ It appears a new waste-to-energy incineration facility will become a reality for Metro Vancouver. Metro has been pushing the idea forward for the past two years, despite strong opposition from the Fraser Valley Regional District and many Valley residents. At risk is the Fraser Valley’s unique and sensitive air shed, and the health of residents who will breathe whatever toxins a Lower Mainland incineration plant will pump into the air. The assurance of incineration proponents that technology can remove most of the pollutants is insufficient. Not enough is known about the dioxins and nano-particles created by burning trash. The provincial government has given its nod to the Metro plan, and while there are conditions attached to the environment minister’s approval, it means incineration will

almost undoubtedly be part of future waste management for this region. So is the fight over? No. Opposition should, and will, continue. However, the battle lines are changing. It appears opponents now have to focus on the location of an incineration plant, rather than blocking it entirely. As part of the consultation process, the FVRD will meet with Metro to discuss concerns, such as incineration emissions. In that regard, a proposed site in Gold River on Vancouver Island is clearly a better choice. That may sound like NIMBYism, but the geography and wind patterns of this area dictate that the emissions of an incineration facility located anywhere in the Lower Mainland will be trapped in the Valley. The stance has to be “not here.” And that position has to be unified, and strong, and loud.

Playing Monopoly with BC Hydro Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views It’s a basic strategy for the board game Monopoly. If you land on one of the utilities, buy it and reap the steady revenues. Real-world investors follow the same rule. BC Hydro’s debt may be enormous, but it’s one of the safest investments around. The crown jewel of B.C. utilities is such a money machine that it can allow extravagant practices and still deliver some of the cheapest, cleanest, most stable energy in North America. Some of those extravagances were described in a new report on BC Hydro by three senior bureaucrats. Headline items included a 41 per cent increase in staff in just four years, lavish management bonuses and union overtime pay, and a communications department almost as big as the B.C. government’s own. You won’t find this kind of luxury in

private companies that have to compete in today’s ruthless marketplace. And you won’t learn much about it from listening to B.C.’s political debate, dominated as usual by the NDP’s union-approved talking points. According to those, the only serious problem here is the intrusion of private power producers onto the turf of this government monopoly cash cow. BC Hydro is only now getting a taste of the business discipline that has been applied to other areas of the provincial government. A case in point is the utility’s 650 staff engineers, part of what the reviewers termed a “gold standard” corporate culture. Why does BC Hydro have six times as many engineers as the Transportation Ministry, which manages about the same amount of complex construction? According to Energy Minister Rich Coleman, the Transportation Ministry used to work the same way. Staff engineers would design a new bridge down to the specifications of the last bolt that holds the handrail. Then this design would be put out to tender, with the winning bidder micromanaged at every step. The remaining Transportation

Ministry engineers now speak wistfully of this bygone golden age. Today they are expected to set cost and performance specifications and let the private sector design and build the bridge to meet those targets. Innovations are thus encouraged, not

A brisk pruning – the report recommends reducing total staff from 6,000 to 4,800 – gives Premier Christy Clark what she asked for. An expected 32 per cent rate increase over three years will be limited to only 16 per cent. And it leaves BC Hydro’s huge capital works program more or less alone: re-

building old dams, preparing for Site C and expanding both the grid and generation capacity. The review team also leaves the smart meter program alone, finding more evidence it will pay off in savings. The reviewers found that BC Hydro’s overtime costs are higher than other electrical utilities, and 84 per cent of that is paid to unionized electricians. The top five overtime earners doubled their base salary with overtime pay between $113,000 and $130,000 last year alone. With a smart grid, at least they won’t be collecting so much overtime to drive around searching for downed wires. And I suppose it would be nice to have all overtime paid at double-time, and 17 to 20 “flex days” that can be taken off or traded for cash. But other public sector workers don’t get that. The government milks this cow too. It overcharges BC Hydro for water use, for one thing. What this overhaul may also lead to is an end to former premier Gordon Campbell’s aggressive climate strategy. That’s a complicated issue that I’ll tackle in a subsequent column. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

FABRICINVENTORYCLOSEOUT!

Teachers are also taxpayers I appreciated (letterwriter) Mr. Sawchuk’s economics lesson but he did not mention that teachers are also taxpayers. One of the “benefits” of having a higher income is that you are entitled to pay more in taxes. My husband has been teaching for over 20 years. I checked the before and after tax totals on a monthly paycheque and just shy of 40 per cent is deducted for taxes, etc. Teachers are paid over a 10-month period and

so the after-tax money is stretched over 12 months. Teachers also spend money on their classrooms and students to provide a more enriching and enjoyable environment. This money is not reimbursed or taxdeductible. I did check out the cost of renting a twobedroom apartment in communities comparable to Abbotsford (Cambridge, Ontario & Trois-Rivieres, Quebec) and they

are similar in cost. Vancouver/Toronto was a different story. One-bedrooms were usually $300-$500 cheaper in Toronto and two bedrooms were $500+ cheaper. A standard teaching workday is 7.5 hours. The school is open for 8 to 8.5 hours. Time is spent at home marking, prepping (even in the summer), and many teachers spend time coaching, chaperoning or working on things like the yearbook. The only two

school events (grad, etc.) my husband has missed in all of his years teaching were because I was giving birth! These hours, and the time away from their families, don’t seem to be taken into account by many who refer to short work days, weeks off, etc. Teachers are paid a yearly salary and not an hourly wage. If they were, the public might just wish they weren’t. Anita Thompson

Struggling with the airshow I strongly support those who serve our country overseas. I believe that we have every right to defend our country. However, I once again struggle with the Abbotsford International Airshow. I have watched those who run into

our streets of Abbotsford to see the mighty jets fly over. I think of the children in war zones across the world who run in the opposite direction when these weapons of mass destruction fly over. I think of the money that was spent on fuel alone. Each

gallon of jet fuel could have given hundreds of kids in Somalia food for a day. But then again, the technology is cool, we are in the west, we are Christian, and we are right? Bob Peters

Peary muzzling WTE opponents I read with interest this comment by Mayor George Peary in the article in last Thursday’s newspaper entitled, “WTE fight isn’t over.” Peary said that the ‘accusatory approach’ won’t help the FVRD achieve its goals, and could have a negative impact on the region’s economy.” And, “I do not advocate an approach which calls for protests and speaks negatively of our provincial politicians.” Mayor Peary is entitled to his opinion, but I see this as muzzling Patricia Ross and others who disagree with the waste-to-energy plan

proposed by Metro Vancouver. I am in favour of this plan to burn garbage. I do not think we should be constantly filling up a landfill in Cache Creek with our garbage. However, I also do not think Mayor Peary’s stance in this toward Patricia Ross and others who oppose it is correct, and I will not vote for him in the next election. Remember, it was strong opposition from leaders like Patricia Ross and Randy White that helped defeat the SE2 proposal a few years ago. Derrick Dick

Clothing evidence rejected Amrit Gill on trial for murder of Harvey Hans

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

A BC Supreme Court Justice has ruled that certain pieces of evidence are inadmissible in the trial of a man charged with the second-degree murder of Harvey Hans of Abbotsford. Justice William Grist issued his written ruling Thursday on the voir dire (trial within a trial) in the proceedings for Amrit Gill, 23. Gill was one of two men charged with the death of 18-year-old Hans, who was fatally stabbed in the neck on May 24, 2008 in front of his family’s home on Ridgeview Drive at about 2 a.m. Co-accused Shevy Brar, 24, previously pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter and was sentenced in June to five years in prison. Grist ruled that clothing of Gill’s seized by police several hours after the murder cannot be used as evidence in the trial nor can the DNA analysis of residue found on the items, as they were obtained through breaches of his charter rights. According to court documents, police seized the items after investigating a disturbance complaint at the Brar family home at 10 a.m. A neighbour reported that an angry man had come to the front door, yelling threats and accusing someone in the home of killing his brother. The man was gone by the time police arrived, but both Brar and Gill were in the residence, and were questioned separately by police, who were trying to determine why the altercation had taken place. Police at the scene had also been versed on Hans’ stabbing, and noticed what appeared to be two small spots of blood on Gill’s white track jacket as well as a small cut and a small amount of blood on his hand. They also noticed a blood-like stain on Brar’s hoodie and a cut on his eye. The officers contacted their superior and were told that Gill and Brar should be

Gill’s judge-only trial resumes Aug. 29 at B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack.

inbound sockeye to open a regular commercial fishery, sales agreements letting aboriginal bands also profit from the fishery are almost automatic. Without such a deal, the Sto:lo are supposed to fish only for food, social and ceremonial purposes and not sell any of their catch. But the bands wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to submit to the more rigorous monitoring and enforcement by DFO that come with authorized sales. Critics who have accused the Sto:lo of

being behind widespread illegal salmon sales in the past doubt its fishermen will honour the rules. B.C. Fishery Survival Coalition spokesman Phil Eidsvik pointed to the estimates of DFO investigators, entered in evidence at the Cohen Inquiry this spring, that more than 90 per cent of lower Fraser sockeye harvested under aboriginal food fisheries were being illegally sold. DFO officials at the inquiry also warned that budget cuts are likely to further limit

the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to bust illegal salmon sales and poaching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairly easy for the Sto:lo to walk away from a sales agreement because they know they can sell it illegally anyway,â&#x20AC;? Eidsvik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be easier to sell more fish without a sales agreement than it is with one.â&#x20AC;? Nor is he confident in DFOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to police aboriginal fishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the regulatory tools and support from their bosses to get control of this

fishery.â&#x20AC;? Eidsvik said he hopes the issue gets further airing before the Cohen commission, which examines aboriginal fishing again Aug. 19. Sto:lo representatives could not be reached for comment. An estimated 4.2 million sockeye salmon are currently believed to be returning to the Fraser. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relatively small run and the Sto:lo would likely have been allocated â&#x20AC;&#x153;very fewâ&#x20AC;? sockeye for sale had enough member bands signed

on, said Les Jantz, DFOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy area director for the B.C. Interior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are just going to be fishing for food, social and ceremonial purposes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there are situations where fish are sold that would be illegal from that fishery and enforcement would be engaged to deal with that situation.â&#x20AC;? A sales agreement is in effect with the Musqueam at the mouth of the Fraser and the Tsawwassen First Nation have a sockeye catch allocation under their treaty.

Tielmann lands UCLA scholarship Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

While attending a water polo camp at UCLA earlier this summer, Alexa Tielmann instantly fell in love with the campus. She never dreamed sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have an opportunity to spend four years there. But towards the end of the camp, Tielmann and her mother Leanne were taken on a tour of the Los Angeles university led by a current UCLA water polo player. The last stop was the office of Brandon Brooks, head coach of the Bruins womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. When Brooks offered her a

scholarship, Tielmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jaw nearly hit the floor. Tielmann, a 17-year-old who is headed into her Grade 12 year at Yale Secondary, has given the Bruins a verbal commitment, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sign her national letter of intent during the November signing period. She could hardly have found a better spot to develop her game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the powerhouse UCLA womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad won the NCAA championship seven times in the past 11 years.

excited.” Tielmann’s ascent should be less surprising to those who have tracked her progress through the national water polo system. Last summer, she represented Canada at U18 tournaments in the Netherlands and Hungary. This summer, she helped the Canadian U17 squad to a gold medal at the Youth Pan American Games in Puerto Rico. In the championship game, Tielmann’s squad spotted the U.S. a 3-0 lead before roaring back for an 8-7 victory. As a carded athlete, Tielmann travels to Montreal several times a year to participate in the Canadian Select League – a program where girls from all levels of the national team system are organized onto five teams and compete in a tournament. “It helps us get competition during the year, and get to know the older girls on the national team,” Tielmann explained. “I’ve really enjoyed it. “For now, I’m focusing on preparing for my four years of university. But in the future, I’m hoping to have the chance to play on higher levels with the national team.”

In loving memory of Dennis Dale Rabel 1943 -2011 After a short, but courageous battle with cancer, Dennis passed away peacefully at home on August 15, 2011. The family is comforted in the knowledge that Dennis is now residing with his Lord and Saviour in the mansion prepared for him. Dennis was born in Edmonton on April 23, 1943 and grew up in various locations in Western Canada, spending the last 47 years in Abbotsford.

CONSTANTINE Paul Joseph Passed away August 14, 2011 at the age of 84. He is survived by his wife Susie; sons Dale(Lorna) and Glen(Carrie); grandchildren Brian(Hope), Danae(Kevin), Nathan, Aaron, Jordan, Alicia, Tanya(Mike), Leiha, and Warren; great grandchildren Brianna, Conrad, Arianna, and Caleb. No service by request.

TEREPOCKI Michael George June 23 1927 ~ August 12 2011

Mike completed his lifes journey on August 12 2011. He passed away peacefully in his sleep after a short illness. Mike leaves behind his 8 children; Earl, Shawn (Colleen), Jim(Sharyn), Alan, Elaine, Linda, Geraldine, Doreen(Neil); 18 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Mike also leaves behind a brother Hank of Edmonton, and many nieces and nephews. Mike was predeceased by his loving wife Edna, his son Mickey, his daughter Janet, three grandchildren, eight brothers and one sister. No service by request. In lieu of flower donation can be made to Salvation Army center of Hope, Abbotsford B.C. Next time you’re watching a Yankees or a Blue-Jays game, think of Mike.

Dennis accepted the Lord as his personal saviour in his youth, at which time he was also baptized. In the last few years Dennis’ walk with God became closer and more meaningful to him. His love of southern gospel music was a great comfort to him as he battled his illness. Dennis married his sweetheart, Evie Mehrer on May 19, 1962. They were blessed with two sons, Maury (Neva) and their son, Greg and Randy (Doreen) and their daughters, Natascha, Cambria and Sezja Besides his immediate family, he is survived by three sisters, Marjorie, Wilma (Don) & Lynda (Gerry) and 4 brothers, Garry (Diane), Lyle (Grayce), Arvid (Esther) and Norman (Judy). He was predeceased by his parents, Edna and Will Rabel. Dennis was involved in numerous businesses, all of which he took great pride in. Since his retirement, mom and dad traveled extensively, including a trip across Canada, 48 states, including Alaska and Europe. Dad enjoyed playing games, enjoyed sports and most of all spending time with his family and friends. Although Dennis will be dearly missed, we know we will see him again when we all meet in heaven. A celebration of Dennis’ life will be held on Friday, August 19, 2011 at 10:30 am at Heritage Alliance Church, 3440 Mount Lehman Road, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to either the BC Cancer Society or BC Heart and Stroke Foundation

wedding anniversary on Aug 12.

Sadly, but inevitably, comes the time to announce the passing of our Mother, Ann Pemble, on August 11, 2011. The 6th daughter of Dutch pioneering parents, Ann was born Johanna Lucy Klein on April the 2nd, 1918, in Ponteix, Sask. Ann didn’t have the benefit of a father in her life as he died in the flu epidemic before she was one year old. Ann worked from the age of 16 in various households as a domestic, finally coming to Victoria and Vancouver where she worked 2 ½ years for the family of Fred Clement, the Dean of Faculty of Agriculture at UBC. “The Dean” gave her away when she married the man who stole her heart, Ernie Pemble. They raised 9 children and were blessed to have 54 years together before his passing in 1996. Ann was well known locally for her restaurants, The Legion Café, The Wildwood across from the old hospital and the Twin Motel Restaurant on the end of Marshall Rd. Left to mourn are her children Rosemarie Gosling (Rick Lundin) Children Cindy, Terry, Tracy & Lori and eight grandchildren John (Lori Wolters) Margaret Boersma (Louie) Children Alan, Brian, Debbie and Suzie and seven grandchildren Cecilia Barbondy (Ernie) Children Linda and Todd, Rick (Gloria Caplette) Children Ricky and Lance and two grandchildren Joe (Corrie Linker) Children Amy, Stephanie and David and three grandchildren Dennis (Karen) Children April, Lee and Dustin and two grandchildren Kathy Storey (Harvey) Children Becky, Tony and two grandchildren Larry (Rosanna Whyte) Children Savanna and Nick 22 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren, Ann was predeceased by 1 grandson, Tony Bosman, who remains in everyone’s hearts. At her side to the very last moment was her caring companion of 12 years, Donald Niles. Donald’s kind attention to her every need allowed Ann to live in her own home until the last few days of her life. We gratefully acknowledge the professional and gentle care given our mother by Dr. Newton and the nursing staff at Abbotsford Regional Hospital Notice of Memorial to follow in late September

Gilbert Kenneth May 8th,1933 - August 12,2011 Papa Ken, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grand father, uncle and friend. Passed away peacefully in his sleep at the Abbotsford Hospital, after 11 months of a hard fought recovery from neuro surgery and just 3 days prior to finally coming home. Ken’s family will greatly miss him and his special ways. “if it was easy he made it hard if it was hard he made it harder” LOL He will be missed mostly by his dedicated wife Connie, his 5 children David Wilkerson, Susan Hansen (Paddy), Gail Nelson (Mark), Greg Wilkerson (Brenda) and Connie-Chris Walker. His 8 grandchildren Amanda, Chad, Kristopher, Reed, Kendal, Brenda, Matthew and Holden. His 4 great grand-children Hannah, Brodie, Serenity and Keyena. A funeral service will be held at Woodlawn Mission Funeral Home, 7386 Horne St, on Monday August 22nd at 1:00pm. The family is at peace knowing that Dad is with his dogs Sally 1, Sally 2, Sarg, and Duffy. In lieu of flowers please donate to the SPCA.

KEEP THE SKY BLUE AND YOUR WALLET GREEN. The 2011 Sonata is the first Hybrid to feature lithium polymer batteries – the smallest, lightest and most advanced hybrid batteries in the world. It’s just one part of our investment in eco-friendly technologies called Blue Drive. With an impressive 206 net horsepower, proprietary 6-speed automatic transmission, panoramic sunroof, and LCD trip computer, the Sonata Hybrid feels more like driving a conventional automobile. After all, just because you care about the environment, doesn’t also mean you don’t care about a great driving experience.

Wedding season is in full bloom

Helping others through divorce Couple provides support for those in pain

T

wenty years ago, Dick Hiebert’s pastor asked him if he’d ever thought about suicide. ”No, never,” said Hiebert. ”But you bet your boots in the past couple of months I have.” Hiebert was going through a divorce – a painful one. So his pastor asked him to watch a divorce video. Hiebert declined. ”But I need you to evaluate the video and check if it’s savy or not,” said his pastor. It provided Hiebert with a task of value – a step critical in the healing process. Now, 17 years happily married to his wife Louise, the couple uses the video to teach a course called Divorce Care every Wednesday night at Central Heights

Church. Hiebert. ”We provide a safe Ashley WRAY Abbotsford News They’ve been teaching the place for people to know they program for 15 years. are needed and to know they Since then, they’ve taught 650 classes, are part of something.

And it’s because of that friendship Hiebert continues to voluntarily run the program. ”He gave me a reason to live. Someone picked me up out of the gutter and gave me a reason to hang on. ”Anyone can turn on a video and lead a discussion group. But it takes an honest and caring heart. You can’t teach that.

From Costa Rica to Hawaii Couple has been photographing weddings for 30 years Ashley WRAY Abbotsford News

For many years, a summer holiday was simply an illusion for Andrew and Arlene Simpson. The married couple with two kids worked every weekend – often taking up to five jobs between Friday and Sunday. The Simpsons are photographers that shoot everything from family portraits to corporate images. After 30 years, the couple decided to limit the number of weddings they shoot between May and October. “At this point in our life we get to work with people that we want to work with, and we want to have fun with,” said Andrew, adding that it also gives them more time to focus on the bride. Arlene and Andrew have been working together since 1980. Every year, they put money towards educating themselves to make sure they’re up to date on their photography skills and trends., “There’s always new things that are out there,” said Andrew. The changing trends have been vast since the couple started. They’ve ranged from balloons to bright colours, to magazine style photography to a more subdued, classic style. Besides trends, their locations have varied. They’ve shot weddings everywhere from Costa Rica to Hawaii to Toronto. They’ve also travelled to Norway, France and the Bahamas to speak about photography. Locally, they’ve witnesses traditional ceremonies and backyard services.

One wedding that stands out for Andrew was on July 7, 2001. They flew by helicopter to the top of Mount Hope. There were seven people in attendance. And at 7:07 p.m. they said their vows. “It was very unique.” Throughout their high pressure job, the couple admits that they’ve come across the odd bridezilla, and fanatical mother of the bride. But most of the time the people are great to work with, said Andrew. “A wedding where the couple is really connected – not just in love, but they have passion and romance, they have the chemistry – when a couple comes in and has that, then the photos are amazing.” For more information, visit www.photoart.ca.

After nearly 11 years with Mad Dog’s Sports / Bishop’s Outdoor Centre, it was time for me to make a change and pursue a new adventure. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. It is not very often in today’s world that people are finding work, not to mention a job that you look forward to every morning when you wake up. Leaving Mad Dog’s, and the family and friends that I made over the years, was not easy and I owe much of who I am today as a person/worker to them. I am excited to join the 360 Fabrication team. My official job title is Executive Sales Manager dealing with outside sales but I am also here to help anywhere I can. This is a shop that is full throttle six days a week and it’s only getting busier! There are no other full-service shops like 360 Fabrication

providing everything from upholstery, paint, car and marine audio, concept and muscle cars, hot rod builds, and our ICBC accredited quality collision center Carstar. I am thrilled that I was able to hook my wagon onto this shooting star and will work my hardest to provide professional customer service and quality of work that is second to none. At 360 Fabrication, we don’t just make your dreams come true....... we EXCEED them! JP Deschenes, Executive Sales Manager

VIKKI HOPES | STYLE EDITOR It seems like we hardly had summer, and w we’ll soon be facing the change of the season, bu but there’s a way to do it in style: layer up. T The transition from summer to fall brings d days that are sultry and summery, while ot others are crisp and cool. A fitted jacket in a classic animal print is a great top layer th that can be added or removed to suit the te temperature. If a bold print isn’t your thing, go for a cl classic neutral in khaki or grey, and make yo your first layer a bright fitted T, a crisp w white dress shirt or a plaid button-up – ta take your pick.

These tips can make the jeans fit There’s the right style for everyone The weather is cooling and it will soon be time to pack up shorts and summer tanks and replace them with jeans and sweaters. Women looking to update their denim wardrobes could be on the hunt for jeans that best fit their shapes. With the numerous styles and colours available today, it’s quite possible to find jeans that fit like a glove – and help you look your best. Here are some tips: • If you’re tall: Look for jeans brands that boast an inseam size, like the way men’s jeans are sold. Some manufacturers offer jeans in various lengths, such as short, average and tall. You may need a 33-inch inseam if you are around six feet tall. • If you’re plus-sized: Select jeans that streamline the legs and hips. Bootcut styles won’t taper at the bottom and will elongate the leg. Be sure to fit the largest

part of your body, which could mean going up a size. But you can have other parts of the jeans tailored for a perfect fit. If you’re petite: Although shorter gals may find jeans that are cut for petite frames, often it takes a little extra tailoring to make them the right length. There is even iron-on hemming tape that can make fast work of hems. Look for dark-washed colours, which can make the legs look longer. If you’re pear-shaped: Draw attention away from hips by wearing higher-waisted jeans that will immediately draw the eye upward. If you’re ample in back: Keep stitching minimal and avoid any extra embellishments on pockets as not to call attention to your derriere.

Lighten the look I recently had a discussion with a co-worker about a friend of hers who has aged herself in the most unfortunate way. She’s a 25-year-old who looks more than 10 years older as a result of makeup overload. Too much bronzer, frosty eyeshadow and crazy Betty Boop eyelashes are just a few of the “makeup offences” committed by this person. It seems unfortunate to me that such a beautiful girl could get lost in the layers of product on her face. One of my favourite makeover shows to watch on TV is when they take an over-the-top woman (young or not as young) and give her a make “under.” It’s fascinating to see how they can bring out the natural beauty in her without taking away from who she is as a person. While I believe that each person can, and should, express themselves through their clothing, hairstyle and makeup, it can still be done in a way that showcases the best of you. If you take a look in the mirror and think back over the last few months

or years, have your friends Chrissy ever asked you why you are wearing false eyelashes at 7:30 in the morning while camping in the middle of the forest (and you didn’t sleep with them on)? Or has anyone ever asked why the tan on your face is there year-round and never seems to match the rest of your body? If any of the answers to the questions above were yes, you might have a bit of a problem, but it is easily fixed. In a similar way that a woman who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup should gradually start to experiment with new colours or applications, the woman with over-the-top makeup should begin to minimize her current routine. Do you love using a darkbrown eyebrow pencil, but have light-blonde hair? Switch to a lighter shade of colour and use a powder with an angled brush instead. Can’t live without eight layers of mascara? Pare it down to two (just once)

Lambert Beyond Beauty but begin with an eyelash curler and you may be surprised at the definition, minus the butterfly effect. Love your electric-pink lip gloss? Why not tone it down just a shade or two and try a sheer, creamy lipstick instead? I fully understand the desire to conceal flaws, diminish discoloration and hide blemishes, but there is no benefit to applying makeup in a thick, unblended way. You can still get the coverage you need. If you start with the right foundation for your skin type and skin tone, you can buff and blend the product onto the skin using a foundation brush or sponge and create a beautiful canvas to interject colour onto afterwards.

Healthy eating is easy in Abbotsford Residents have access to locally grown strawberries, raspberries, cucumbers, onions, rhubarb and more

W

hen you’re lucky enough to live in Abbotsford, eating healthy should be easy. We’re fortunate to live in the heart of B.C.’s agricultural region where we have more farms per square kilometre than any other area of the province. That means we have access to an abundance of seasonal, locally grown produce, like strawberries, blueberries, lettuce, corn, potatoes, raspberries, cucumbers, rhubarb, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and broccoli, not to mention the endless selection of local meats and dairy. Some of the freshest local food is right here for the picking – literally. If you’re like me and you enjoy eating and cooking with fresh, flavourful food, chances are you’re going to buy local. In doing so, you’re making healthy, not to mention sustainable, food choices. Forget the“100 Mile Diet.” In Abbotsford we could easily live off a 40 kilometre diet (or 25 miles). With so many places to buy or even pick your own fresh food, how could locals not eat healthier? Some of my favourite Abbotsford WEBPHOTO farms are Wisbey Vegetables for their Blueberries are grown locally in Abbotsford, fresh farm produce; Lepp Farm Market as is lettuce, corn and potatoes. for their incredible butcher shop; Fraser

Duck Farms for their organic, grain-fed duck; Gelderman Farms for the best porkloin; Goat’s Pride Organic Dairy Farm for incredible goat cheese; in addition to a fine selection at Chilliwack Dairy and Green Hill Farms, just to name a few. I hope you will join me in delighting in

the endless culinary choices made possible by the finest fresh foods right here in your backyard. In Abbotsford, eating healthy tastes really good! Why not give it a try? Chef Jeff Massey Executive Chef at Restaurant 62 in Abbotsford

Haywire: Collaborative grape-to-wine labour of love with Kathleen Rake With Labour Day quickly approaching (Sept. 6), I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d share with you some B.C.-wine labours of love to help celebrate summertimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last long weekend. Get you hands on these wines, if you can. Haywire is a collaborative grape-towine venture brought to us by Christine

Coletta and Steve Lornie (proprietors). Michael Bartier (winemaker), Alberto Antonini (consulting winemaker) and David ScholeďŹ eld (wine advisor) round out the wine-industry expert team. At a recent event, I tasted the 2010 Switchback Vineyard Pinot Gris Clone 52 ($23/12.9% ABV) and 2010 Gamay

catered weddings â&#x20AC;˘ corporate functions â&#x20AC;˘ special events â&#x20AC;˘ summer barbeques

SUZUKI DOLLAR$ SAVINGS TIME IS ON!

Noir RosĂŠ ($21/13.7% ABV) from Haywireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst vintage, produced at Okanagan Crush Pad, a custom-crush, smalllot winemaking facility in Summerland, B.C. (For more information about Haywire and Okanagan Crush Pad, visit www. HaywireWinery.com and www. OkanaganCrushPad.com.) The Pinot Gris from Haywire shows lots of citrus, some tropical fruit, and a touch of sweet spice on the nose; on the palate, lemon and lime are the predominant ďŹ&#x201A;avours, with a little mango, more spice and a very delightful minerality that work together to shout, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another sip, please.â&#x20AC;? Serve this wine with grilled lemon-tarragon chicken, shellďŹ sh, a Mexicaninspired salad or Asian fare. The Haywire Gamay RosĂŠ greets you at the nose with aromas of cherries, raspberries

and tart cranberries. On the palate, cherries, sour cherry candy and a bit of pink grapefruit work with a subtle earthiness to bring a very lively ďŹ&#x201A;avour proďŹ le. Serve this wine with your Thanksgiving turkey and ham, bruschetta and ďŹ&#x201A;atbread or lobster. And yes, it will work well with pizza, too. Haywireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst Pinto Noir ($27/13% ABV) is due out mid-September, so it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready for Labour Day. But I will let you know what I think as soon as I get a chance to taste it.

Arts by the numbers More than 6,000 visitors to Kariton Gallery Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

It’s been a good year for the Abbotsford Arts Council. Executive Director Judy Whyte said the numbers are in and all signs point to another big year. During her annual report to city council,

Whyte said Kariton Art Gallery and Boutique showcased 136 artists and attracted 6,191 visitors. The gallery also generated 191 sales for local artists. “The numbers I have just presented were generated in 870 square feet of space,”

she said, adding this year the arts council hosted a number of programs outdoors, around the gallery, to meet the growing numbers. The Envision Coffee House Concert Series and concerts in the park continue to attract larger audi-

ences with more than 2,000 people attending the first 12 shows in the 24 concert series. “We are estimating to quadruple last year’s total attendees,” said Whyte. On Sept. 10, the arts council will celebrate its 40th anniversary with an all day event for both kids and adults. While her report was filled with success stories, Whyte said the arts are “struggling.” She asked council to continue it’s support of the arts and restore their funding to its previous level of $23,000 a year. This year, the arts council received $18,000. “The Abbotsford Arts council is a solid investment into the future of our wonderful city.”

The Abbotsford News

Judy Whyte, executive director of the Abbotsford Arts Council, said 6,191 people visited Kariton Galley last year. The council is continuing to grow its programs.

DANCERS COMPETE Abbotsford’s Inverglen Scottish Dancers performed at the Beltaine Festival in Spain last month. It marks the first time a Canadian dance troupe has been invited to the annual Celtic festival. During their visit, the local dancers had the opportunity to perform alongside groups from France, England, Scotland and Spain. The dancers performed traditional Scottish Highland and country dances, as well as dances choreographed by their teacher, Sandra Crosby. SUBMITTED PHOTOS
