Mackenzie “Mackie” Cameron is only nine, but unfortunately, he understands suffering. That experience has come through his buddy Jaden Palmer, whom he is eager to help. Last week, Mackie organized a loonie drive at his school, Sandy Hill elementary. He wore a Santa hat stuffed with paper so it stood straight up, making the kids smile. He told them Jaden’s story. In a letter sent to parents at Sandy Hill, here’s what he said: “I wanted to tell you a story about my friend Jaden. Jaden is10 years old. He was in my Tae Kwon Do class until the last six months. Jaden loves to play hockey with my dad and I in our driveway. He loves math, just like me. I have not been Continued on A4

able to see Jaden for a while because he has been in Children’s Hospital off and on since August. He has spent a lot of his life at Children’s Hospital. This year he has only been able to go to school for a couple of days. Jaden has cystic fibrosis. He can’t breathe like we can, his balance is not very good, and he coughs a lot. His lungs don’t work as well as ours do. Last summer Jaden’s heart stopped working but the doctors made it work again. The doctors have put him on a lot of new medicines. They have told his mum Kathleen that Jaden will have to go to the hospital every month for a stay of a week or more. Jaden has been running high fevers and it looks like another visit to Children’s is going to for Christmas. O E VIDLINE happen Jaden’s mum Kathleen ON ws.com abbyne is a single mum. Kathleen is funny, nice and loves kids. She helped us when our dad got cancer last Christmas. She spent time with us and talked to my mum every day. Now she is worried, scared, and sad. Jaden’s medicine costs so much that she has little money left for food, gas, or Christmas. I want to help her have Christmas with Jaden. I asked for donations for cancer research or cystic fibrosis research for my birthday. I have decided to donate this money to Jaden’s mum so she can get the things she needs and maybe have some Christmas presents for Jaden. I am asking for help. If you would like to help, anything would be appreciated. The fundraising began with Mackie’s birthday party in November. Among his presents, he got $55 that he was going to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, but instead he asked if he could give it to Jaden’s mom. It’s a bit surprising to hear that a boy in Grade 4 wants to part with birthday money, but the Camerons

Mackie (right) and Jaden have been friends since kindergarten, and attend Tae Kwon Do classes together. know the motivation. Mackie’s dad had a battle with cancer last year. It was Alan’s second bout with the disease, involving chemotherapy and a gruelling schedule of 35 radiation treatments. It was a bad time for Mackie. “He’s a compassionate kid, and he’s got a big heart. He really suffered a lot when I was ill,” says Alan. Friends and neighbours looked after the Cameron kids and brought over meals while Alan went for treatment, accompanied by his wife Melissa. “People were so supportive of us – the whole Sandy Hill community really came through for us,” Alan

notes. “It’s a really closely knit group of families.” The experience left its mark on Mackie. He was angry for a while, but worked through it with a counsellor. Now, with compassion replacing the bitterness, he wants to help others. For years, Alan was a goaltender in local adult hockey leagues, but these days he takes shots from Mackie and Jaden in the driveway. “They’re typical nine-year-olds. We knew Jaden had cystic fibrosis, and it was a serious disease, but he had been doing fairly well.” Hopefully, he’ll be well again soon. Jaden and his mother’s goal is to keep him healthy so he can be home for Christmas, rather than in hospital. He is just getting over a bout of pneumonia and a partially collapsed lung. His mom Kathleen Palmer is a web

designer who works from home so she can be with her son. It’s just the two of them, and she must deal with the cost of medications, travel and parking at Children’s, and other expenses. She wasn’t sure she wanted to be the recipient of charity, but Melissa and Alan didn’t give her much choice. “I was a little overwhelmed,” she says. “It’s not surprising, coming from this family, but it’s still overwhelming.” She considers Mackie’s efforts as particularly touching. “They teach us adults lessons.” Melissa says its repayment. “She (Kathleen) talked me through a year of cancer treatments with Alan, so I owe her, and now’s the time.” She understands people don’t want to be objects of sympathy, but there are times when they need support. “And there’s a day you will give back.” She and Alan are proud of Mackie. “I’m delighted with him, and my daughters too,” says Alan, noting that Bella and Sasha have joined in the fundraising campaign. “A lot of times, at this time of year, they think about ‘what can I get,’ but this has diverted their attention.” It’s the kind of thing that restores Alan’s faith in mankind. “People get very cynical about other people nowadays. But when it comes right down to it, when situations get bad, people help each other.” Jaden appreciates his friend’s work on his behalf. “Mackie is a one of a kind. He has a heart. He will do things for other people, not to get anything back, but just because he’s nice.” Anyone interested in donating to Mackie’s fundraising effort can contact the Cameron or Palmer families at macameron@shaw.ca and tiggerhappy@shaw.ca respectively.

Convicted of child porn offences Hundreds of images and video found on computers Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford man was convicted Friday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack of possessing, accessing and sharing child pornography. Martin Gregory Smith, 61, will be sentenced at a later date. Smith was charged in July 2008 after police executed a search warrant at the home he owned in Abbotsford with his wife. Authorities investigating Internet crimes against children had traced downloaded child pornography images and videos to a computer in the Smith home, and alerted the

Abbotsford Police Department (APD). The APD then seized two computers – a desktop and a laptop – which were later found to contain hundreds of pornographic images of children as young as four and five years old. In his ruling, Justice Neill Brown said an APD investigator reviewed almost 13,000 files of the 94,000 that had been extracted from the computers. Of those, almost 1,200 were found to meet the legal criteria for child porn, while about 1,400 were categorized as “childrelated� (depicting children in explicit clothing and/or posi-

tions). Another 900 were labelled as erotica (kids in attire such as bathing suits). In addition, almost 1,000 photos and videos were found to have been distributed over LimeWire, a software program in which people can share music, video and photo files with other users. About 30 per cent of those were considered child porn, while the rest were categorized as “child-related� and erotica. Brown said they contained file names such as “Toddler Rape ...,� “Natural Angels� and “Russian Tied-Up Virgin ....�

Brown said some of the images showed the “graphic sexual abuse� of children as young as four years old. Smith was also found to have searched and accessed child porn over the Internet, with an investigator estimating that 90 per cent of the computers’ search history under his account was related to the topic. During Smith’s trial, defence lawyer Ondine Snowdon had argued that although child pornography was found on computers in the Smith home, there was no direct evidence that he had knowingly acquired or shared the data, as both he and his wife

had access to the computers. The two had separate accounts, and no child pornography was found on his wife’s account. Brown said he found it “highly speculative and contrary to common sense� to suggest that Smith’s wife had accessed his account and downloaded child pornography, given the number of images that had been stored in the three-year period before his arrest. Brown said her only motive for doing so would be to frame him, and he found there was no evidence to support this theory. A date for sentencing will be set at the beginning of March.

Guilty of GST fraud: Falsely claimed

Two local men have been found guilty of fraud in relation to a scheme in which they falsely claimed $23 million in GST funds. Manjit Khangura of Abbotsford was convicted of three counts of fraud over $5,000, while Sikander Bath of Mission was found guilty of six counts last

week in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Each went to trial on 20 counts of fraud and two counts of laundering the proceeds of crime. They are scheduled to be sentenced in February.

Its mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. Some of the programs the Rotary Foundation supports include PolioPlus, Rotary Peace Fellowships, Ambassadorial Scholarships, Rotary Grants for University Teachers and Group Study Exchange around the world. Since 1985, the Rotary Foundation has provided leadership in a humanitarian project called PolioPlus now recognized worldwide as a model of public-private cooperation.

All-in airfare pricing Imagine going to a restaurant for a $5 steak dinner, but when you get there you discover being seated at a table will cost you $5, a surcharge of $7 for the plate and utensils and another $4 for the server to take your order. Add on the tip and HST and suddenly your cheap meal has become an expensive night out. That’s how Canada’s airlines have been allowed to operate. It’s marketing strategy; advertise only the base cost of the ticket, with the full price of that ticket, including all its various surcharges, fees and taxes revealed when the purchaser is about to commit. Consumer advocates have been complaining about it for years. In fact, the federal government did do something about it, adding the “allin-one” airfare advertising clause to the Canadian Transportation Act in June 2007. But lobbying by the airlines, which

claimed the new pricing policy would put them at a disadvantage to foreign airlines who could continue to advertise only their base fares on their own websites, has delayed its implementation for years. That’s about to change. European airlines have been required to advertise the complete cost of a ticket since 2008. In January, American airlines will also fall in line with all-in airfares. The competitive disadvantage argument no longer exists. So why will Canadian consumers have to wait another 12 months for a five-year-old law to finally be enforced? While it’s likely that only the most naive traveler believes they could actually travel to England for $99, requiring the airlines to be up front when advertising their fares will empower consumers when making the best choice for their travel spending. – Black Press

‘Homeland’ security isn’t just about people Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand As you look over your wish list, and wonder if you’ve been naughty or nice, remember this … it’s not just Santa who is checking it twice, as I learned from someone recently. Seems with all the “improving access to the U.S.” going on right now between Canada and the States, more and more information on Canadians and their backgrounds is being dredged up, and checked when you try to cross the border. Thus, next time you consider crossing what was once the longest ‘undefended border’ in the world, remember that Homeland Security has an incredible amount of information and is not so willing to overlook anything, no matter how long ago it occurred. If there was ever an event in your past that could be remotely ‘shady,’ you better dredge your memory because you could be asked about it, and find yourself

in a mess of grief if you neglect to respond with the ‘correct’ answer. Fortunately, so far as I can recall, I don’t believe I’ve done something that would cause me to be refused entry, but you never know until the guy in the booth tries to tap your memory bank, based on what is in his computer database. I can understand the American concern about personal security, based on the events of a decade or so ago. But then I also wonder about the ‘concern’ of America’s full domestic security, and its reliance on offshore oil when it could, and to a large extent already does, rely on Canadian oil. At the moment President Obama is teetering on the brink of cancelling the proposed Keystone pipeline from our oil sands to U.S. refinery facilities. While I recognize the environmental concerns, would it not be better in the long run to have your energy needs supplied by a “friendly” nation than from sources which have done nothing but cause the U.S. grief, such as Iran, Iraq and other oil-rich but not necessarily sympathetic nations? I know that even within Canada, there

is much said about the environmental impact of oil extraction from the tar sands . . . and from what I read not much of it is good. However, despite what we all believe is right for the environment, we and the Americans keep consuming oil-based products at a rate that is not

Virtually everythiing we use today is made with plastic, which means it was made with oil. sustainable without tapping into these sources. Perhaps instead of railing against tar sands, environmental groups – some of which interestingly enough are funded by organizations that derived their money from oil production – should direct their rightful anger at the manufacturers who turn oil into consumables. Just think this Christmas, as gifts are opened, about the mass of plastic pack-

aging, ink that colours wrapping paper, and the actual gifts themselves. Virtually everything we use today is made, in part or in whole, with plastic, which means it was made with oil. Gone are the days when televisions came in wooden cabinets; they’re now flat screens made primarily of an oilbased product, probably sitting on a stand that also has fossil fuel derivation. Think of all the food products you buy that aren’t wrapped in something, or the bags you carry them home in. Oil production obviously isn’t just about generating fuel for your car. It is about virtually everything we do and use. And the U.S., like Canada and every other modern nation, will require it in safe, secure abundance until there comes a time, unlikely as that ever may be, when some miracle product is discovered that can heat our homes, make the products we desire, and drive industry and commerce, while at the same time being ‘environmentally friendly.’ Only then will there be true ‘homeland security’ in North America.

letters Who will remind us what Christmas is about? I looked up ‘Christmas’ on Bing images, and the first two things I found were a Christmas tree, and a candy cane. Further down on the page were candles, poinsettias, pictures of Santa Claus, snowy landscapes, and more Christmas trees. The last image on the page was of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Each page after was full of ‘symbols’

of Christmas. There was only one, if any, pictures of Jesus, or the Nativity, per page. Charlie Brown’s theory is that Christmas is getting too commercial. In A Charlie Brown Christmas, Linus explained what Christmas is all about. Where is Linus now? Who will explain what Christmas is truly about?

What we do at Christmas time every year is buy more and more unneeded stuff. Each year newer models of what we already have comes out, each more expensive than the last one. Why do we buy it? Because it has more – a flashlight, the Internet, downloadable music and movies. We spend $50 to $100 on one thing that has what we already have, all rolled

into one. We buy all of this, unheeding of the message never said, not realizing what Christmas is all about, because no one is ever reminding us. So this season, please remember to remind your friends and family the real meaning of Christmas: Jesus. Geneva Ferguson, age 11

Hospital built too small I am writing about my recent experiences at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. It started on Nov. 23 when I went to emergency in extreme pain. It ended on Dec. 11, when I was released. My admittance was very quick and I was soon under the care of a physician. I was told by the wonderful doctor that I was going to be admitted to help get the pain under control. I was taken out of the exam room and told to sit in a recliner. This recliner’s footrest was broken and tilted to the right. I have a few chronic conditions that make sitting in awkward positions very uncomfortable. I was informed about an hour later that this was where I was going to have to stay, as there were no beds available. I explained my health status and they actually found a bed in oncology for me. I was there for the next day and a half. Two days later I was back in emergency, and was referred to a specialist in Chilliwack. I saw him the next day, and returned home early in the evening with more prescriptions. Two days later, I had to return to Chilliwack to be checked over. This was Dec. 2, in the morning. That afternoon I was back in emergency as I developed excruciating pain on the

way home. I was there overnight, laying on a stretcher but on meds to control the pain. On Dec. 4, I was back in emergency and given pain meds. The next day I was back in emergency and admitted to hospital once again. This time they found me a bed in the pediatrics department. What I am wondering about is how a brand spanking new hospital was built so small that it can’t serve the needs of the community? I know there are people in this hospital who spend their entire stay on a stretcher in a hallway or in a recliner in emergency. This is not the health care that citizens of B.C. should be subjected to. We are taxpaying citizens who support the nurses and doctors that are trained to take care of us. When is the government going to see fit to restore our once sought-after medical system? When is health care going to be more important than profit? Instead of cutting services to keep the budget balanced, why don’t the politicians tighten their belts and take a pay cut? I wish to thank the nurses and doctors that looked after me at ARHCC. They are the best. Elly Rhoades

Funding provides services for newcomers Newcomers to Abbotsford will receive enhanced immigrant settlement services – to help them adjust to their new lives and gain employment – through $896,341 in funding for the Abbotsford Community Services Society. This funding is part of a $20.3-million annual budget for the Settlement and Integration Program under WelcomeBC. The funding goes towards orientation classes and workshops on a wide variety of topics such as how to find a job, find a place to live, navigate the local transit system and learn banking basics. A press release from the provincial government noted B.C. continues to be one of Canada’s

most popular destinations for new immigrants, welcoming more than 40,000 newcomers each year. “I’m very pleased to see additional funding go towards welcoming newcomers to Abbotsford,” said Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen. “The services this money supports are vital to helping new immigrants integrate into our community.” By 2019, it’s expected that there will be over a million job openings in the province, and the provincial government anticipates skilled immigrants will play a vital role in filling many of those positions.

A Maple Ridge woman who left three horses to starve on a Mission farm has been banned from owning animals forever. Elissa Anne Uberall received the ban and a $2,600 fine earlier this month in Abbotsford provincial court after a judge found her guilty on one count of causing an animal to continue to be in distress. The horses were seized from the Cameron Avenue property by the Maple Ridge branch of the SPCA in May 2009 after a complaint about their condition from a concerned citizen. “They were emaciated simply due to the fact that they were provided with inadequate care and nutrition. They were being starved to death,” said Marcie Moriarty, B.C. SPCA’s general manager for cruelty investigations. The horses spent

Uberall failed to appear in court on Dec. 2 and a warrant has been issued for her arrest. She still faces another animal cruelty charge as well as criminal charges of uttering threats and

assault causing bodily harm for allegedly lashing out at SPCA officers when they returned to conduct a follow-up visit in September 2009. During that visit, SPCA officers found a dog who was so sick he had to be carried off the property on a stretcher. The dog was eventu-

ally euthanized. “She clearly demonstrated by her actions that she has no business owning animals and the court has recognized that,” said Moriarty. Uberall has a year to pay the $,2600 fine and can request a review of the lifetime ban on owning animals after three years.

Christmas trees come with safety considerations.

Planning for the holidays is a busy and joyful time. But all of the decorations, extra electrical cords and the parade of people going in and out of your home calls for more safety precautions to help you make this holiday season safe and happy for you and your family. T he Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association offers this checklist for home holiday safety: Q Ask a friend or

neighbour to watch your house and take in your newspaper and mail if you plan to spend the holidays away from home. Put lights throughout the house on timers to turn them on and off in your normal living pattern. Q If you display a live Christmas tree or live greenery, select the freshest possible. A moist tree is less likely to catch fire. Look for a trunk sticky with sap and for green needles that bend and are secure on the branches.

Our mission is to bring excellence in professional arts and heritage programming to our community.

Q When using a live Christmas tree, cut the base at a 45-degree angle. Place it in a container with water and always keep the water level above the cut. Q Place trees a safe distance from stoves, radiators, vents, fireplaces and any other heat source that may dry the tree. Inspect the tree for dryness daily. Q Inspect all holiday light wiring. Defective, worn or frayed electrical wiring should be thrown away. Also, be sure to use fixtures specifically designed for outdoor use if you decorate your house, trees or yard. Q Use no more than three light sets on any one extension cord. Also, don’t run electrical cords under rugs. Be sure all lights are turned off before you go to bed or leave the house. Q Place candles and other open flames away from decorations. Never leave bur ning candles unattended and always supervise children if burning candles are nearby. Q Keep a fire extinguisher near your Christmas tree. Make sure your family has an emergency escape plan. In case of fire, leave your home and call for help from a neighbor’s home. Q When buying artificial decorations, check for “flameproof ” or “fire retardant” qualities. Q Never burn wrapping paper in a fireplace or wood stove. Certain ink pigments react with heat and create airborne particulates that are dangerous to inhale. Also don’t bur n evergreens, they could flare out of control and send flames and smoke into your house. Q Cooking is a leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries. When you cook, be sure to wear clothes that fit close to the body so they won’t be ignited by hot burners. Do not leave items cooking on the stove and be sure that pot handles are turned in.

Barrowtown kids plant on Saar Creek

The intermediate students at Barrowtown elementary school partnered with the Abbotsford soil conservation group, the Fraser Valley watershed group and Kinder Morgan to plant trees on Saar Creek in Sumas Prairie. The students learned about the history of Saar Creek, the benefits of planting, how to plant and the use of beaver guards on the trees. The importance of supporting wildlife in agricultural areas was a focus, as was the restoration of creeks and waterways.

“I want our school to be a place where students have the opportunity to learn as part of a whole school approach to sustainability, and joint environmental projects are a great way of educating students,” said Barrowtown principal Cindy Romanowski. Barrowtown elementary school won first prize for most sustainable elementary school in the district last year, and is extending their projects this year to include a new greenhouse, a wet compost program, a recycling program, energy contests and 4-H gardening club.

Incessant ringing from a cell phone, a frustrated customer, and a dead man sets the opening scene in a cafe for the University of the Fraser Valley Theatre’s production of “Dead Man’s Cell Phone.” Written by Sarah Huhl, the play is a past Pulitzer Prize finalist.

Five Abbotsford Pilots players, each representing a local charity, raced against each other in a fun competition during the Abbotsford News $10,000 Charity Challenge at Sunday’s Abbotsford Heat game. Christopher Vinette, who represented the Salvation Army, won the race and earned the Sally Ann a $5,000 donation.

Charity Challenge Vinette wins for Sally Ann During the second intermission of Sunday’s game between the Abbotsford Heat and the Hamilton Bulldogs, five players from the Abbotsford Pilots junior B hockey club participated an on-ice contest to win money for charity. The Abbotsford News $10,000 Charity Challenge, sponsored by Save On Foods, had invited non-profit groups earlier in the fall to state what they would do with $10,000 for their organization. Five g roups advanced to Sunday’s finale – the Salvation Army, Canuck Place, Abbotsford Hospice Society, KidSport, and the Abbotsford Youth Commission. Each charity was represented by a Pilots player in an entertaining race, which involved players picking up and dropping off bags of groceries. Christopher Vinette won on behalf of the Salvation Army, securing $5,000 for the local group. Salvation Army public relations director Deb Lowell then had a chance to win a further $5,000 in a shoot-to-win contest, but her shot from the far blue line came up short.

then the weather had turned clear and cold. Dad and I waded through knee-deep snowdrifts to reach Percy’s small shack, where a thin wisp of smoke climbed straight up from the chimney. Following our knock on the door, Percy gruffly welcomed us in. We entered a one-room house that had known better days. The air had a mixed smell of a hardwood fire in the stove and what my young nose called body odor. Dad set the bag of groceries on a sticky, oilcloth-covered table near where Percy invited us to sit. Following a discreet inspection of the chair assigned to me, I carefully sat down, making certain that I did not touch that gross tablecloth. Percy and Dad made small talk, discussing the recent turn in the weather, whether there would be enough wood to last the winter, and some other topics. I wasn’t paying much attention because I was too busy inspecting this old man’s living quarters. After the topics had been well covered, Dad said, “Christmas is here again, Percy, and our family just wanted you to have a few groceries as our gift to you. You know, Percy, Christmas is important to us because of the birth of Christ.” This particular year something strange happened. I watched a single tear slide down the face of an old man and into a thick bushy beard. He quickly brushed it away with a dirty hand as he mumbled thanks. As we rose to leave, Percy touched my father’s arm and said, “Don, you are a bearer of hope.” That was to be our last December 24 with Percy because he died early the following year. That scene will stay with me forever, for in a moment in a time on a Dec. 24. I was taught a great lesson: God softens grizzled old hearts through kind acts of His people.

sums of cash. Q Once at the mall parents are reminded to keep an eye on their little ones and to never use stores, displays or video arcades as a baby sitter. Sadly, children are abducted every year, often in malls or department stores. Have a plan of action and ensure your children understand it in

the event they become separated from you. Suggest that they make their way to the nearest cashier to tell them they are lost and to stay there for assistance. Q Leaving your children unattended in shopping carts while you shop is not recommended, as this can lead to injuries from children falling out of

the carts. Strapping your child into the cart is a good idea, but please be aware that this may still be hazardous to your children as they may struggle to get out and tip the cart over in the process. Q In order to put a damper on pickpockets and thieves that may be wandering through the mall, follow these simple rules: Men should carry their wallets in their front pockets as opposed to their back pockets or jackets. Women should carry their purses close to their body but should not wrap their purse straps around themselves. Doing so could cause you to be dragged down to the ground in the event that your purse is snatched. Q Avoid using revolving doors as thieves with good timing can grab your parcels and get away by the time it takes you to emerge. Q Never leave your purchases unattended, even for a short period of time. Q Parking is almost always a problem when it comes to the holiday season. If possible, park under lighting close to entrances and exits. Q Under no circumstances should you leave your children unattended in your vehicle, even for a short period of time. Q Place your purchases in your trunk to avoid drawing attention to your vehicle. Know that if you place your purchases in the back seat you may return to your vehicle to find your windows smashed and all of your gifts stolen. If you use a GPS to assist you in getting from one place to another, a good idea is to remove it from plain view as well or take it with you while you shop. Q When your day of shopping is over and it’s time to head home, a good practice is to have your keys ready when you approach your vehicle. By doing so you avoid the clumsiness of trying to find your keys and juggling with your shopping bags which delays getting into your vehicle. If you feel uncomfortable about walking to your vehicle alone in the dark, consider asking a security guard to escort you.

Grieving Gough wins gold Two days after father's death, Abbotsford skeleton athlete wins first World Cup title Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Competing with a heavy heart, Abbotsford native Amy Gough slid to her first ever World Cup skeleton gold medal on Saturday in Winterberg, Germany. Two days prior to the race, Gough’s father Robert passed away at the age of 70 in Abbotsford. Gough considered heading home immediately, but after consulting with family, the 34-year-old Olympian elected to stay in Winterberg for the race. She pulled herself together and mustered the performance of her life, clocking a winning time of 1:00.16. Then Gough began the long journey home – she was set to land at the Abbotsford International Airport on Monday afternoon in advance of her father’s funeral, tentatively set for Wednesday. “It has been a rough week,” Gough acknowledged in a press release following her landmark win, “so this feels really good.” Gough already had a silver and three bronze medals on her World Cup resumé, but Saturday’s race marked the first time she’d climbed to the top step of the podium. The Abbotsford Senior grad represented Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, finishing seventh. Gough was joined on the Winterberg podium by two German athletes. Katharina Heinz finished in second spot at 1:00.24, while Marion Thees

slid to the bronze medal with a time of 1:00.26. Calgary’s Sarah Reid finished eighth at 1:00.87, while Mellisa Hollingsworth of Eckville, Alta. was 13th and did not qualify for the second run. “It has taken me a long time to get here, but my training went really well this summer and I’m the strongest that I have ever been,” Gough said. “Just because I’m older, I think this shows you can’t kick me out yet. “I feel really privileged to do what I really enjoy doing and I think that helped me today. This victory tells me I know I have what it takes to be a winner and I’m proud of that.” The race featured a new format, with two runs on Friday and the top 10 athletes coming back Saturday to do one run for the medals between the men’s and women’s bobsleigh races on Saturday in an effort to gain more exposure for the sport. But heavy snow forced the cancellation of one run Friday. Amy Gough’s victory coincidentally came one day after a historic golden luge run by fellow Canadian Alex Gough back home in Calgary. The Golden Gough sliding sport athletes are not related. “I had to tell the announcer that we weren’t sisters,” laughed Amy Gough. “That is awesome that Alex won. The Gough name is definitely out there this weekend.” -- with files from Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton

Bulldogs cool off red-hot Heat Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

file photo

Abbotsford’s Amy Gough, at the age of 34, notched her first career World Cup skeleton victory. The Vancouver Olympian won at Winterberg, Germany on Saturday.

The Abbotsford Heat established a new franchise-record winning streak on Friday, only to see it snapped in overtime on Sunday. Andreas Engqvist scored his second of the game at the 1:08 mark of OT, flicking a picture-perfect topcorner shot over the glove of Heat goalie Danny Taylor to lift the Bulldogs to a 3-2 victory at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on Sunday afternoon. The Heat had a few upbeat moments – most notably, Jordan Henry's first-period goal, which triggered an avalanche of teddy bears flying from the stands onto the ice. It was part of the Abbotsford club's annual teddy bear toss, with the stuffed animals being collected for distribution to needy children through the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau. But by and large, the hosts were less than satisfied with the performance – particularly in the third period, when the Bulldogs took over the game and out-shot the Heat by a 13-3 margin.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

On a busy tournament weekend on the local high school basketball scene, the Yale Lions girls hoopsters served notice they’ll be a force to be reckoned with, both now and in the future. The Yaleans swept to victory in both the senior and junior divisions at their annual Lions Classic tourney. Both gold medal victories came at the expense of the Maple Ridge Ramblers – the Lions prevailed 67-59 in the senior final, and the junior girls matched that performance with a 40-28 triumph in their title game. Hailey Kendall paced the senior Lions offensively with 18 points against the Ramblers, including a trio of three-pointers, while Jessica Collins (14 points) and Sarah Kurath (10 rebounds) also had big games. Head coach Euan Roberts said that his team’s defensive performance was the deciding factor in the victory, which was something of an upset – Maple Ridge is ranked No. 9 among B.C. AAA teams, while the Lions are currently unranked. “We just played really hard,” Roberts enthused. “We challenged Maple Ridge to make plays and hit shots over our hands. The girls were really moving their feet and talking on defence.” In the junior girls final, Taylor Lundrigan (11 points) and Jaylene Soegard (10 points) led the way for Yale. Q Heading into the Hawkball Invitational, the annual senior

boys tourney at W.J. Mouat Secondary, all signs were pointing to a high-profile clash between Pitt Meadows and the host Hawks in the final. Pitt was, after all, ranked No. 3 in the B.C. AAA rankings, while Mouat was No. 5. The unranked Maple Ridge Ramblers didn’t follow that script, though – they upset the Hawks 59-48 in the semifinals on Friday. The Hawks wrapped up the tourney with a 62-51 loss to South Kamloops in the bronze medal game. Ankle injuries to their starting post players played a role in the Hawks’ downfall – Tristan Etienne was sidelined for the entire tourney, while Daniel Pawliuk saw very limited min-

utes. But Mouat coach Rich Ralston refused to use the injuries as a crutch. “If we had played well, we still could have beaten Maple Ridge – the injuries were not the reason why we lost,” said Ralston, noting that his team shot 28 per cent from the field in the second half vs. the Ramblers, including 1-for-11 from three-point range. “They played harder than us, and they’re tougher than us.” The final featured a classic Fraser Valley match-up between two iconic coaches – Rich Goulet of Pitt Meadows and Ken Dockendorf of Maple Ridge. It was far from an offensive masterpiece, but Pitt

were lucky to get a point," Heat captain Quintin Laing said, offering a blunt but accurate analysis. The Heat (19-8-2-0, 40 points) had won their previous six games, including a 4-3 shootout victory on Friday over the Bulldogs. With the single point Sunday, they moved to within one point of first place overall in the AHL. The Oklahoma City Barons and Houston Aeros – both West Division rivals of the Heat – are at 41 points. The Heat stumbled out of the gate Sunday, as Engqvist sniped blocker side on Taylor on a power play at 2:12 of the first period. Just past the midway point of the frame, Heat left winger Dustin Sylvester dug the puck out along the boards and fed it back to Henry at the point. His shot through traffic found the back of the net, prompting the hail of teddy bears. It was Henry's first goal of the season, and it seemed appropriate that an impromptu party broke out to mark the occasion. The mobile blueliner has been a productive offensive player in seasons past, but he had just two assists in his first 27 games. "I joked with the guys yesterday and earlier today about scoring the teddy bear goal, so we had a couple laughs over it," said Henry. "It's been a struggle, for sure. I didn't think my first one was going to take this long to come. I'm trying to focus on other parts of my game right now, and not grip the stick to tight about the offence. I'm sure it'll

come." Just 28 seconds into the third period, Aaron Palushaj gave the Bulldogs a 2-1 edge, but the Heat equalized less than three minutes later on a two-man advantage. Laing, parked at the top of the crease, took a centering feed from Ben Walter and tapped the puck between the legs of Bulldogs goalie Nathan Lawson.

Heat keeper Taylor came up with a massive save with just under three minutes left in the third, as Palushaj was sprung on a breakaway after stepping out of the penalty box. Palushaj fired a shot labelled for the bottom corner, but Taylor kicked out the right pad. But in OT, Olivier Fortier made a slick feed to Engqvist, whose rising shot hit

the underside of the crossbar on its way in. Q The Heat wrap up their pre-Christmas schedule with a pair of road games against the Grand Rapids Griffins on Wednesday and the Chicago Wolves on Thursday. The game against the Wolves, the Vancouver Canucks' affiliate, will be broadcast live on Shaw TV (5 p.m. PST start).

Panthers rally past Pilots The Abbotsford Pilots fell victim to an epic rally on Saturday evening, as the Port Moody Black Panthers came roaring back from a threegoal deficit to steal a 5-4 victory. Playing on the road, the local junior B hockey club raced out to a 4-1 lead midway through the second period, courtesy of goals from Justin Dorey, Ryan Stewart, Terrence Limbert and Brad Parker. But the Panthers clawed all the way back, capped by Taylor Young’s goal with just 34 seconds left in the third period. The game summed up the Pilots' inconsistent season to this point – they've looked great at times, shaky at others. But it's worth noting that the Pilots are enduring a litany of injuries – forwards Riley Lamb, Kevin Lourens, Brandon Daase and Luke Venema, defenceman Brett Kolins, and goalie Riley Parker are among those sidelined. And at 16-8-2-0, they're just four points back of the Aldergrove Kodiaks for first place in the Harold Brittain Conference. Pilots head coach Jim Cowden said the injuries have been a blessing in disguise in some ways, as rookies like Brady Lawlor, Dakota Schipper, Kyle Star and Eric Roberts have played more prominent roles than they would have otherwise. "We've added a lot of secondary scoring that we didn't know we had," Cowden said. "We've just got to get healthy, and shoot for the playoffs." Q The Pilots are in action on Friday against the Kodiaks (7:30 p.m., MSA Arena).

Hawkball all-stars included Mouat sharpshooter Jesse Coy, Maple Ridge teammates Max Neumann and Jacob Durkovich, Pitt’s Trevor Severinski, and South Kam’s Spencer Jaroszuk. Q The Hansen Hurricanes senior boys finished fourth at their Roundball Classic tourney.

Elgin Park went on to win the tournament, edging North Surrey 75-70 in the final, while Hansen finished up with a loss to another Surrey squad, L.A. Matheson, in the bronze medal game. Hansen post player Arsh Gill was named a first team all-star. “He’s been our leading scorer in most games, and our hardest worker,� Hansen coach Sukhpaul Dhaliwal said of Gill.

Barry Wayne

DUBBERLEY

Barry Wayne Simmons passed away peacefully at his home on December 14th, 2011 in Agassiz. He was born in Winnipeg on June 16th, 1939, and moved to Vancouver at age four. He graduated from John Oliver High School and then worked with his father in construction. Soon after he pursued an education degree at UBC, accepting his first teaching position as the shop teacher at Agassiz Secondary. He later went onto become principal at Harrison and Kent Elementary Schools. He completed his Masters Degree in Curriculum Development, focussing on Mathematics. In total, Barry taught in the Kent School District for over 35 years. Barry was also an active member of the Agassiz volunteer fire department for over 20 years and a member of the Elks Lodge #311. He owned and flew a Cessna airplane during the 70’s, a boat and motor home during the 80’s, and finally settled on his fifth wheel trailer in the 90’s. Barry enjoyed reading, woodworking, golf, RVing and traveling the world. Barry and his wife Jane set foot on every continent except Antarctica enjoying excursions to The Great Wall of China, African Safaris and his favourite Australia. He spent many hours working in his shop creating toys for his grandchildren and works of art in wood, never wanting to repeat a project twice. He loved playing golf at the Harrison Hot Springs Course with his buddies, holes 2 and 7 especially. Barry also loved spending time traveling with the trailer. Together Barry and Jane took trips to the US, across Canada and just to get away. He could always be found sitting in his chair carving a found piece of driftwood, working on a word puzzle or reading another novel with his faithful Pug, Fancy by his side. He is survived by his wife Jane, children Karen (Dwayne), Blair (Anna) and Todd, grandchildren Paige and Riley and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Richard, his mother Edith and his sister Louise. A celebration of Barry’s life will be planned for Spring of 2012. A special thank you to loyal friends and to the many years of care by Dr. L.M. MacIntosh. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Red Cross. On line condolences to the family may be made to: www.wiebeandjeskejfh.com

Diane will be sorely missed but forever remembered as a very caring and loving wife, mother & grandmother. Diane displayed amazing determination and courage throughout her lengthy battle with cancer and although she wanted to stay with us, her body would not allow.

A Memorial Service was held at 1:00 pm on Monday, December 19, 2011 at the Heritage Alliance Church, in Abbotsford, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Helen was a dedicated Mother and for countless years committed her life and faith to the United Church. She was predeceased by her husband, Bill and outlived her 7 siblings. She is survived by her 3 children: Barbara Nicholls, Judith (Ron) Francis of Perth, Ontario and Robert (Cheryl) Timco of Vernon, BC. Also cherished by her best friend Violet Kenyon Dutka and beloved sister-in-law Ann Anthony. For the past 7 years Helen had a happy home at Sherwood Crescent Manor, in Abbotsford, BC, where a Memorial Service was held in her memory on Friday, December 16, 2011. Should friends desire, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband Jack this year on November 4. Dorothy was born in Saskatoon to Jessie and Arthur Woolley, and was raised in Vancouver and surrounding area. Before she was married, she taught briefly at Stave Lake Elementary. In the early years, she was active in the Chilliwack United Church in the Women’s group and as a CGIT leader. Family was very important to Dorothy. She was a good mother and adored her grandchildren. She enjoyed knitting, reading, gardening and baking; passing along many recipes to her family. After Jack’s retirement, they enjoyed their acreage on Sumas Mountain, being with family and friends and their many trips throughout Canada and the USA with Jackson Tours. They moved to Menno Terrace East in Abbotsford where they had been living for the past 2 years. A Memorial Gathering for both Jack and Dorothy is being planned for the spring.

We all feel so blessed to have been given such a loving person, that lived life with such liveliness and compassion. A special thank you to Dr. William Chan and staff for their wonderful care over the years, to sweet Claudia from the Nurse Next Door, the ladies from the Royal Purple in Aldergrove, Bev at Fraser Valley Health, and to Melinda and Carrie from MSA Hospital for the outstanding care you gave Mom in her final hours. As per Florence’s request there will be no service, please send donations in lieu of flowers to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Have a cup of tea, a smile for Mom, and sing one of Florence’s favourite hymns, Amazing Grace. This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
