Heather McPherson feels some relief that the community living crisis in B.C. is being acknowledged by politicians. Now the Abbotsford grandma, who raises her 20-year-old grandson with fetal alcohol syndrome, wants to see some action. McPherson is among the hundreds of families across the province who have been impacted by issues with Community Living BC (CLBC), which provides program funding for adults with developmental delays. Families have said services for their children are drastically reduced when they reach the age of 19 and fall under CLBC guidelines, rather than the Ministry of Children and Family Development. In McPherson’s case, her grandson, Brent, went from attending a day program five times a week to just twice. McPherson, 69, said the additional days Brent is now at home are stressful for the two of them. Brent enjoys the structure of a program where he can socialize with others, but at home he often wanders around, not knowing how to occupy his time. Continued on A5

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and Itâ€™s Happening Right Here in Abbotsford! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER
ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now itâ€™s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.
Hereâ€™s How It Works: Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot â€“ it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If yourâ€™re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

Carlton Leith still hears the nurse’s screams in his nightmares. On March 18, at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, those terrifying sounds jolted him into action. He followed them to the nurse’s station, where a nurse was unconscious on the floor, bleeding from her head, and a huge man was still raining punches down on her. Another nurse was trying to stop the out-of-control psychiatric patient. Unable to push the panic button, she screamed. The man’s arm cocked back for another blow, aimed at the nurse trying to control the patient, and Leith grabbed it. He quickly switched his grip to a chokehold, on the neck of a man close to twice the size of Leith’s 155 pounds. The stronger man grabbed Leith’s arm and pulled it away from his throat, but with the nurse also grabbing at the patient, Leith reapplied the hold. They held him for an impossibly long minute, until two hospital security members arrived, and then it was over.
Those moments were recounted at the Abbotsford Police Board meeting on Tuesday morning. Mayor George Peary, Leith’s former principal at Yale Secondary, presented the 36-year-old with a Police Board Commendation. The victim of the assault was seriously injured. She sustained a laceration to her head, a cerebral hematoma, cuts and severe facial swelling. She has not been able to return to work. Leith has been thanked by her, and the other nurse, which he appreciated. They said the situation could have been much worse if he didn’t intervene, and there may have even more grievous injuries. “I had no fear for myself, I had fear for them,” he recalls. “I don’t feel like a hero. I’m just a normal guy,” said Leith, a local entrepreneur, who founded Top Notch Food Services. “The other nurse is equally as much a hero.” Still, he said the Police Board Commendation helped to put the incident in perspective. Looking down at his framed award he said: “It means a heck of a lot.”
Carlton Leith holds the commendation he received for coming to the aid of a nurse being beaten by a patient.
Dual honours for Abby Pair of awards cite city for business and airport initiatives Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
Abbotsford will receive two major awards in the coming week. Today, the Vancouver Chapter of the National Associationof Industrialand Office Properties (NAIOP) will name Abbotsford the Most Business Friendly City in B.C. for 2011. On Oct. 27, the BC Aviation Council will present the Abbotsford International Airport with its William Templeton Trophy, awarded annually for outstanding initiative and achievement in the successful development of a community airport.

According to the council, Abbotsford “is an outstanding example of how multiple levels of government working with the airport’s board and staff can completely transform a regional airport in a stunning 15-month period.” The local airport has steadily grown into the largest secondary airport in Canada, with more than 460,000 passenger movements per year. The renovation project has positioned Abbotsford towards its goal of attracting new airline routes and accommodating over two million passengers per year by 2025.

Water redundancy needed Three Abby rioters Growth increases requirement for backup source
Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
The need for redundancy is one of several reasons put forth by the City of Abbotsford when discussing why the Stave Lake water project needs to move forward. On Monday, council heard a presentation on why redundancy has become an issue. “As demands on our water system grow, year by year, redundancy becomes more of a concern,” said Jim Gordon, the city’s general manager of engineering and regional utilities. Currently, the city’s water supply comes from Norrish Creek, the primary source, as well as Cannell Lake and 19 wells. In
the past, if something were to happen to the Norrish Creek line, the city could still provide water from the other sources. But city growth has increased the daily use of water. If Norrish Creek were to be compromised, as it was in 2003 when heavy rains caused the system to be temporarily shut down, a water shortage may result. “Our usage this month is about 70 MLD (million litres a day). We could get about 50 MLD from our wells,” explained Gordon. The Cannell Lake permit only allows nine MLD but Gordon said it could be increased for a short period to 20 MLD to “barely meet demands.”
However, if the problem occurred in other months, like May to August, when the average use rises to more than 80 MLD, taps could run dry, he said. “We would drain our reserves and lose fire protection. Residents in higher areas of town would have no water,” said Gordon. Those who did still have water, said Gordon, would have little pressure and likely face a boil order. “Every year, as our
usage grows, our redundancy shrinks.” The city wants to create a new water source and treatment centre at Stave Lake. The proposed project will cost an estimated $291 million and could be funded with up to $61 million in federal funds if it becomes a P3 (public-private partnership). A referendum has been scheduled for Nov. 19 to allow voters to approve or reject the proposal.

Monitoring the buzz Insomnia, anxiety, allergic reactions, palpitations and withdrawal – a list of symptoms from an illegal drug? No, it’s what adults have known for years are the downsides of drinking too much coffee and tea. Unfortunately, now the kids are emulating their parents by drinking energy drinks that typically have twice the caffeine of pop and just about as much as a cup of drip coffee. The kids think these drinks are cool, their logos are eye-catching and they are easy to get at corner stores and grocery outlets. A single can of Red Bull or Monster falls within Health Canada guidelines for caffeine consumption for older teens, but what happens if two or more are consumed in a day? Should the government have taken a tougher stance and prevented these drinks from being sold anywhere but pharmacies? The more adults try to regu-
late teen behaviour, the more challenges they face. And the fact that caffeine is mildly addictive is not lost on companies marketing their products to kids in new and innovative ways. The popularity of these beverages among teens looking for a light buzz is reminiscent of the older generations’ interest in cigarettes. For teens, water is boring, pop is oldschool and so is juice, although neither are great as they are full of sugar. But are we comfortable with kids picking up an energy drink at lunch or on the way home from school? At the very least, parents should be educating themselves as to what their children are ingesting. Health Canada’s suggested limits for daily caffeine intake are roughly 2.5 mg per kilogram of body weight. Parents can at least use the new content disclosure rules to ﬁnd out whether their kids’ drinks measure up. – Black Press

Treaty Commission’s 19th annual report last week, Chief Commissioner Sophie Pierre announced she has asked for a one-year extension to her term, to see the organization through its second decade. And if things don’t change, particularly in Ottawa, then “shut ’er down.” The commission is the independent “keeper of the process,” and the chief commissioner is appointed by agreement between the federal and provincial governments and B.C.’s First Nations Summit. Its job is to facilitate talks and dole out funds to aboriginal groups researching and negotiating treaties. As of this year, they have disbursed $500 million, $400 million of it loans that must be repaid out of treaty
settlements. “We are 19 years into the process, and we have, just on the First Nations side, a half a billion dollar investment, and when are we going to start seeing a return on that investment?” Pierre asked. It’s safe to assume that there has been at least that much spent by the federal and provincial governments as well. And after a burst of progress with the Tsawwassen and Maa-Nulth treaties, and a controversial deal with the Yale First Nation in the Fraser Canyon, costly inaction resumed. Sliammon First Nation negotiators ﬁnalized a treaty in 2009. Off it went to Ottawa, where it has languished ever since, waiting for a set of initials that would allow a ratiﬁcation vote by about 1,000 Sliammon people near Powell River. At stake is a settlement in which B.C. contributes 8,300 hectares of Crown land and Ottawa provides $37 million to compensate for a century of trespass and resource extraction from Sliammon territory. (You can object to all this and try to live in the past, as B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins does, but we now have stacks of high court decisions that
make aboriginal title real and inescapable, if not well deﬁned.) Other commissioners agreed with Pierre about Ottawa’s role, including the federal appointee, Jerry Lampert. “The Canadian system is such that they are constantly going back to Ottawa for mandates for their individual negotiators,” Lampert said. “This
After a burst of progress with the Tsawwassen and Maa-Nulth treaties... costly inaction resumed is bureaucratic, and it plays against the idea that we’re in a real negotiation.” With a majority government in Ottawa, and B.C. MP John Duncan as federal aboriginal affairs minister, there is hope of movement. And there is action on another front. Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq was in B.C. last week to sign an agreement to hand over authority
and funding for on-reserve health programs to a new aboriginal authority that will work with the provincial health system directly to administer reserve health programs. This will end a parallel health system run by Ottawa on reserves. A similar agreement was signed in 2006 for aboriginal schooling. Alas, ﬁve years later, there is still wrangling between the First Nations Education Steering Committee and Ottawa over funding. But I’m told there is progress there, with resolution possible by the end of this year. Sto:lo Tribal Chief Doug Kelly, chair of the First Nations Health Council, says its ﬁnancing terms are clear, and dealing Ottawa out of health care delivery will improve outcomes. B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong and Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak agree that these broader self-government transfers for health and education, along with forest and mining deals, will bring treaties closer. Pierre’s blunt warning must have been heard in Ottawa. It appears the Sliammon treaty has been located and will receive federal blessing this week. tﬂetcher@blackpress.ca

Support for water project can grow and prosper in this community, just as we have. One of the main opponents of the partnership project is the union sector. They have their own interests and agenda that I hope everyone can see through. They want to secure more high-paying jobs. The private sector should be used to benefit the city and this should be explored more and more as a way to fund
projects and keep the financial impact on taxpayers to a minimum. This is an important issue for our community. I hope everyone takes time to do research on this project and come to their own conclusions. However, I support this project and the benefits that it will bring to Abbotsford. Denise Friesen
Priorities are backwards
First, I would like to thank Abbotsford general manager Jay Teichrob for clarifying the debate for the proposed P3 water supply and treatment centre, which seems to be causing a lot of confusion lately. He states at the be-
Schools over meters
According to the latest news from the Vancouver School Board, there are over 40 schools that need upgrading in case of earthquakes. The cost is estimated to be $1 billion which, according to B.C Hydro, is the cost of installing smart meters on every home in B.C. It seems to me it would make more sense for the provincial government to upgrade the schools instead of installing a gadget on every home that could cause illness. Robert Riedlinger
ginning of the article that voters don’t seem to realize this issue is an “all or nothing” deal. He even says that people “are being left with the impression that there is another option.” At sometime during this interview he must have realized that “nothing” isn’t really an option – logic would dictate that there obviously has to be some op-
tion – and he then says that if the electorate says no to the proposal that the city would have to “limit new development,” and “use water rates to create a financial motivation to conserve.” Well, if limiting development and water conservation are in Teichrob’s opinion the default, and therefore the negative option, I would say that Abbotsford council
has got its priorities backwards. Secondly, doesn’t Stave Lake belong to the District of Mission? Having themselves voted “no” to this proposal, would it not be conceivable that the residents of Mission would also say “no” to another city attempting the same thing they voted down in the first place and on their land?

UFV volleyball, golf, rowing teams on life support
Last spring, University of the Fraser Valley volleyball coaches Greg Russell and Dennis Bokenfohr were called in for a meeting with athletic director Rick Nickelchok, where they were informed that their programs – along with men’s golf and rowing – were on the verge of being eliminated. What’s more, they discovered their programs had been on the chopping block for the previous two years as well, due to budgetary
limitations. “It was quite a shock to me,” said Russell, who coaches the Cascades men’s volleyball squad. “I had recruited a whole bunch of kids from the U18 team that I also coach, and lo and behold, there might not be a program . . . It’s the commitment I made to kids and parents that I was really concerned about.” Russell met with Karola Stinson, UFV’s vice president external who oversees the athletic department, and appealed for funds to keep the programs afloat. Last-minute funding was

secured to cover the 201112 season, but the teams’ future beyond that is up in the air. Stinson explained that the athletic department budget only covers UFV’s four Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) programs – men’s and women’s basketball and soccer. Money for the non-CIS teams has been scraped together from unallocated funds after the university’s budgeting process is complete.

“The fact we’ve always managed to find money in the past and save them for another year speaks to the fact that we value their contribution to university life,” Stinson said. “I’m hoping we can do it again, but I don’t know if we can. But if the worst should happen, it has nothing to do with the value or the contribution to the university. Hopefully, magically, we will be able to do it again.” Russell has pitched several ongoing funding mea-
sures, including a student fee for athletics. “These programs have been very successful,” noted Russell, who said it costs about $100,000 to run the two volleyball programs. UFV announced two weeks ago that Nickelchok had resigned his post as athletic director; Nickelchok and Stinson both declined comment on the circumstances of his departure. Chris Bertram, the coach of the Cascades men’s golf team, is serving as interim athletic director. The funding issues are a source of tension within

June left us suddenly on Monday, August 29, 2011, while at home. Born in Sarnia on June 13, 1951, June grew up in Ontario, completing a BA before moving to Vancouver in the late 1970’s. There she met and later wed Grant Dickin, who would remain her partner for life. June’s introduction to skydiving in 1979 led to a 12 year long passion for the sport, during which time she made over 1600 jumps, accumulated about 14 hours of freefall time, and contributed several years as an instructor. In more recent years, June’s artistic and creative side was expressed through her nature photography, with some of her photographs and collages appearing in shows throughout the Fraser Valley. June nurtured people and nature the same way – recognizing the unique and beautiful and lending just the right touch so they would thrive. June gently organized her world and the world of those who came to her in need. She began her helping career as an early childhood educator and went on to become a much loved and valued outreach support worker with the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley. June provided loving unconditional support to women in distress who had lived in violence, helping them ﬁnd hope and a belief in a future for themselves. June treasured the restorative value of the natural world, both directly, through many canoe, camping and kayaking trips, and through her interpretations in art. June was an avid reader with far-reaching interests and a book constantly on the go. She had a great appreciation for other cultures and views of the world, but her heart was ﬁrmly planted in her home and family, whom she adored. June was predeceased by her parents, Thomas and Grace Dickson, her sister Margaret and her nephew Ethan Sutcliffe. June will be deeply missed and forever loved by her husband of thirty years Grant Dickin, her brother Ian Dickson, nieces Tracey Brook and Tammy DeRush (Steve), great nieces and nephews Mitch, Ally, Sami, Jenna, and Ava, as well as her many dear friends and relatives throughout Canada and Scotland. June’s ﬁnal contribution to bringing renewal and a sense of hope to others was to be an organ donor. Cremation has taken place, and June’s wish to have her ashes scattered will be fulﬁlled at a later date. A Celebration of June’s Life will be held Saturday, November 05, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at the hall of the Matsqui Evangelical Lutheran Church at 5781 Riverside Dr. Abbotsford BC (in Matsqui Village). In lieu of ﬂowers, donations to honour June may be made to the Nature Conservancy B.C. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org

You can find love online Couple and therapist offer advice on how to be successful in online dating While the online dating world is so varied now that some sites match couples based on aura colours or by speciﬁc age groups, ﬁve years ago it took only the simplest of sites to pair one Abbotsford couple. Bobby-Jo and Wes Kowalski met via Plenty of Fish (POF) in November of 2006. The site, now ranked the 35th most popular such service in Canada, according to Alexa.com, allows members to search through hundreds of proﬁles. With their six-week-old daughter Samantha cooing in the background, Bobby-Jo comments on how their relationship was unique from the start. “There was that feeling you don’t have to pretend, and be yourself.” Both 28 at the time, the couple joined POF because other efforts to

in describing who she was. Shortly after, she and Wes started talking. But before meeting Mr. Right, Bobby-Jo was cautious in her online data. She did not post her name, address or home phone number on her proﬁle. Instead, she provided her cell number when she felt comfortable. Bobby-Jo had a date with a man who said he was single, but found out through a mutual acquaintance that he was actually married. Yet she remains positive about the experience and encourages others to try ﬁnding love online. “If someone is not having luck with what they are doing, why would you keep doing the same thing expecting a different result. Try something different,” Bobby-Jo said.

Learning music easy as 1-2-3-4 Local teacher states that everyone can play music Rhythm isnâ€™t something you are born with. Abbotsford music teacher Adam Schilt says itâ€™s taught, and heâ€™ll teach you â€“ if you can count to four. The musicianMelissa WELSH turned-teacher Abbotsford News works out of the Sound of Music store at 2631 West Railway St. Schilt, 27, customizes his teaching to each student, whether itâ€™s the guitar, ukulele or hand drums. Being given a shaker (a percussion instrument) at a friendâ€™s house party 10 years ago started a musical journey of learning. Largely self-taught, that now influences the way he teaches his students. â€œI show them the doors, they have to walk through them themselves. I overload them, say â€˜do as much as you can and whenever you have a problem, come back broken and I will fix you.â€™ â€œ The process teaches students to do the work, while preventing bad habits from forming. Currently, Schilt has 42 students on his roster with an expanding waiting list. While his youngest students are five years old, Schilt is confident that he could start teaching the djembe to kids three and up. Learning this instrument instills an early sense of rhythm, where the only requirement is that you are able to
count to four. â€œItâ€™s probably the best way for anyone to start playing music. Once youâ€™ve learned the rhythm on the hand drum, it is very easy to apply it to the guitar, or keyboard.â€? Schilt also teaches the ukelele in his 30-minute lessons. The ukulele is smaller in size and weight than a guitar, and uses softer nylon strings instead of steel, making it easier for kids to play. He creates a visible chart that details different levels, allowing students to see how they are progressing. Each level represents a new skill or accomplishment. After 10 levels, they can even reach superstar status by adding a special alias to their name, like Adam Guitar Hero. While this fun progress report may be more for the kids, Schilt also has students beyond the 30-year-old mark. Getting them engaged is the biggest thing, Schilt says. If that happens, then just half an hour a week can reap some amazing results. Two students in particular, have greatly impressed Schilt. Ten-year-old Carson Schaub has high-functioning autism. That condition can sometimes create a learning mental block, Schilt says, but music is different because it involves the whole brain. Carson has become a natural,

Playing music may have seemed impossible at one point for nine-yearold Asher, who lost most motor function in his right hand after suffering a stroke during child-birth. But now,
he drums advanced rhythms on the djembe, his right hand keeping tempo while his left hand taps a series of beats. â€œItâ€™s great to help them overcome their difficulties,â€? Schilt said. â€œThatâ€™s what Iâ€™m here to do. Iâ€™m just the facilitator to help them think around it.â€?

October is Healthy Workplace Month!
Get your Wellness Program Started Today In a healthy workplace the welfare of employees is a top priority! Employers of healthy workplaces know that healthy employees are more productive, have greater job satisfaction, take fewer sick days and are injured less. This is good for employees and good for a company’s bottom line! So why not give wellness a try in your workplace? Here’s some great advice to get you started. Getting Started: Wellness programs can begin from a number of different approaches. Some organizations choose to start with a few key initiatives such as lunchtime education sessions or arranging discounted memberships for staff at a local fitness center. Starting with a few initiatives is a great way to get the ball rolling and build interest. Other workplaces may also choose to start by conducting an employee survey to determine employee needs before taking on anything more ambitious. This survey can also be repeated later on to show successes and provide justification for expanding the program further. The long term goal should be to eventually develop a comprehensive workplace wellness program. Success Factors: Regardless of how you get your program started, there are a number of factors which lead to successful programs. Leadership and involvement from management: Build your business case and approach management for support and approval. A program that doesn’t fit with the company’s goals will be a tough sell, so streamline your ideas with your
company’s mission and vision and focus on the benefits to both the employer and the employee. Employee participation in planning: Engage employees to participate in a wellness committee to contribute to the planning and ongoing maintenance of the program. This will ensure that the program meets staff needs and allows employees to show leadership in the workplace. Program offerings that meet the needs of employees: Use employee surveys, get feedback at staff meetings, provide suggestion boxes or form a committee. Find any method to get ideas, feedback and support from employees. An approved budget to support the plan: Big or small ensure that the plan you develop will be supported by available funds. To allow your program to grow also allow your budget to grow. Remember that the cost of employee wellness is an investment in the success of your company! Continuous monitoring of the program: Organize regular meetings with your wellness committee and get regular feedback from your team to continually improve your program. With some thoughtful planning, management support and employee participation any company, regardless of size or budget, can develop a workplace wellness program. For more information to get your started visit www.healthyabbotsford.ca and click on “Get Involved” then “Workplaces” to find plenty of ideas, resources and tools.

layers VIKKI HOPES | STYLE EDITOR Making the transition from one season to another is easy when you follow one simple fashion step – layer! The key to avoid looking like the Michelin Tire Man is to choose classic tailored pieces that work well on their own and look fabulous together. Two thin layers can work better than one thick layer because the air trapped in between serves as thermal insulation. Limiting the number of layers – three is usually enough – is also important to avoid a shapeless look. If you choose to wear several layers on top, balance out the bottom half of your body with slim options such as skinny jeans, leggings or tapered pants.

Unreal lashes The question, “Are those real?” usually doesn’t relate to any area on a person’s face and is often considered an offensive question, but maybe you’ve been lucky enough to have someone ask you this question as a result of your stunning and lengthy eyelashes. Eyelashes vary from person to person, just like hair, body shape, eye color, and well, pretty much everything about us. There are long lashes, short lashes, thick lashes, thin lashes. White lashes, black lashes, brown lashes, red lashes. They vary in thickness, length and color, yet with some of the more recent advancements in beauty technology, we now have the opportunity to grow fuller lashes of our own, or have faux lashes skillfully glued to each of our own individual lashes. My point is that there’s no longer a need to feel “less than” in the lash department. Whether you already have ample lashes and want to create even more drama or whether you are struggling to add emphasis along your lash line, there is help (and hope). False eyelashes are generally the easiest way to appear like you have fuller, longer lashes. Many people are completely scared of them though and so it’s important to remember that not all false eyelashes are created equal. There are strip lashes, which are a full strip (or row) of lashes on one base that are usually glued from one corner to the other corner of the eye. They range from natural to dramatic in thickness and length and can always be trimmed to fit the natural width of your own eye. There are also individual eyelashes,
hair, a , skin s & nail a salon sa o
Custom Cuts Perms Make-up Styling Brow & Lash Tinting
Beyond Beauty which usually have three or four hairs each and a small, ball type base. These are great for adding emphasis where you want it, whether that is to the outside corner of your eyes or to fill in gaps across them. Both types of lashes can be applied using an eyelash glue (which is sometimes supplied when you purchase the lashes) or with a medical adhesive called Duo. Squeeze a small amount of the glue onto a wipe-able surface and either dip the base of the individual lashes into the glue or use the end of a brush or other device to apply a thin layer of glue to the base of the strip lashes. Allow the glue to dry a little and get tacky before applying to the eye (30-45 secs). Some people prefer to apply eyelashes before any other eye makeup like eyeliner or mascara, but I like to use mascara first to create a base to place the false eyelashes onto. If you are just practicing, it may be a good idea to apply lashes first so that if you do need to remove them and try, try again, you won’t wreck the makeup underneath. Who said long, luscious lashes were unattainable? Not I! Chrissy Lambert can be reached at Chrissy@makeupinfusion.com or www.makeupinfusion.com or follow @ MakeupInfusion on Twitter

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-
served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update speciÀc to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofÀce directly at 604-309-6068.
