The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) is reviewing the circumstances surrounding the death of motorist Robert Minler, who fled from police in Abbotsford on March 6. Const. Ian MacDonald said the Abbotsford Police Department (APD), in consultation with the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC), requested the external investigation be conducted in order to ensure that all facts surrounding the case are verified. It’s hoped the review will ensure police transparency and public trust in the system, MacDonald said. He said there are two issues, in particular, that the APD wants to confirm fit with their version of the facts. One is that Abbotsford police did not pursue Minler after he fled from the scene.

The other is that Minler, 21, had not been in police custody when he sped away. If he had been, a coroner’s inquest would be required, as it is for all in-custody deaths. Minler was pulled over in a church parking lot at the corner of Gladwin and Maclure just after midnight on March 6 when Abbotsford Police received reports of a suspected impaired driver. Police have reported that Minler sped away from the scene before an officer approached his vehicle. They have also said they did not pursue him, as he headed south along Gladwin Road and east on George Ferguson Way. Minler then crashed into a light post, power pole and building just east of McCallum Road and died on scene. Once the VPD completes its investigation, a report will be forwarded to the OPCC, which can order further investigation if it does not agree with the findings.

Witnessed disaster Abbotsford teacher stranded in devastated Japan

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Michael Luzia of Abbotsford was teaching English on the small island of Izushima, on the northeast coast of Japan, when the earthquake struck last Thursday. It was the one day of the week that he worked with the 25 students there in a school situated on a high hill. If it had been any other day of the week, he likely would not have survived the 8.9-magnitude quake and the devastating tsunami that accompanied it; he would have been in his home base of Onagawa, which was flattened by the disaster. Onagawa is on the coast, about 50 km northwest of Sendai, the LUZIA city most devastated by the tsunami. Luzia’s girlfriend, Hui Wen Shi of China, was in Onagawa at the time, and fled to high ground with about 15 others when the tsunami converged on the fishing village of 10,000. She was the only one of the group to make it. When she could run no farther, she turned back to see the whole town washed away. She was rescued by helicopter and taken to an evacuation centre in Ishinomaki. Meanwhile, Luzia, the students and the other teachers waited for two days on Izushima to be rescued by helicopter and were taken to the same evacuation centre, where Luzia was reunited with Shi. From there, the couple were taken by a friend to Sendai to an apartment that escaped damage but where limited food was available and where there was no gas or drinkable water. Now, Luzia, 27, is trying to get back to the community of Bradner, but has been delayed because he has no passport. It was lost in the tsunami, along with his vehicle and everything else in his apartment. His mom, Susanne, said she was told by the Canadian embassy in Japan that the only place a new passport can be issued is in Tokyo, but trying

The fishing port of Izushima island in northern Japan was destroyed by the earthquake and tsunami. Michael Luzia of Abbotsford was teaching on the island at the time, but survived because he was on higher ground.

Local aid to Japanese The Fraser Valley Japanese Language School is raising funds toward the relief efforts in Japan. The organization will have a donation box available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day until April 1 at the Tim Hortons at University of the Fraser Valley, 33844 King Rd. in Abbotsford.

As well, the group will be on hand tomorrow (Friday) from noon to 4 p.m. at the campus’ University House, where they will sell Japanese curried rice for $2. For more information about the fundraising efforts or to volunteer, call Satomi at 604-853-3849.

She first heard from him via email after a frantic three days of trying to reach him. She has since spoken to him over the phone. “He’s doing really well because he’s focused on getting through it,” she said, adding that the reality of the situation will probably hit him harder once he’s back home. Luzia has been in Japan for the last 2 1/2 years. He had planned to move back to Abbotsford this summer and pursue his master’s degree in linguistics this fall.

NewsBytes SIGHTINGS Unconfirmed sightings of escaped murderer William Wade Bicknell have been reported in Alberta and B.C. Police say he may be driving a 2009 grey Chevrolet Impala with licence plate CXE 602. Bicknell, 42, was serving time for the 2001 murder of Maple Ridge’s Angela Steer, who lived in Abbotsford from 1978 to 1998. He escaped last Thursday while on a temporary absence from Drumheller Institution in Alberta, after taking a guard hostage and stealing firearms and ammunition. He is 6’ 6” and 402 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. He has several tattoos, including full sleeves on both arms. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at 780-992-6100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

LOCKING UP More than 25 anti-theft devices were handed out to Abbotsford drivers on Monday, the first day of the Operation Lock-Up program, according to Abbotsford Police Deputy Chief Rick Lucy. The program, in partnership with ICBC, will issue up to 300 steering-wheel locks to owners of Abbotsford’s top three most stolen vehicles – pre-2001 Honda Accords, Honda Civics and Jeep Cherokees. Owners of those cars can obtain a voucher for the free device at the Abbotsford Police Department at 2838 Justice Way or the Community Police Office at 34194 Marshall Rd.

PRO D More than 200 Abbotsford teaching assistants and youth care workers attended a fourday professional development event this week. Sessions were held at Abbotsford Middle School and the Abbotsford Arts Centre Addition from Monday to Thursday. Topics included: supporting ESL students in the classroom; understanding Fetal Alcohol Syndrome; and exercise programs for the physically disabled.

Homeless count volunteer Laureen Atkinson tries to make contact with the occupant of a tent under the MacClure Road bridge on Wednesday afternoon. Counters were told to “go away,” and even the lure of new socks and granola bars was not enough to gain cooperation from the tent’s occupant. The last regionwide count was in 2008, and it tallied an estimated 2,660 homeless people. The 2011 count started at 10 p.m. Tuesday, was to last 24 hours, and results tallied over coming weeks.

A former gravel pit on Lefeuvre Road could be transformed into 12 parcels of farmland, if approved by the ALC. Coun. Simon Gibson said the “manner in which it has been configured” could lead people to think estate properties would be developed. Coun. Dave Loewen agreed, and both suggested denying the motion outright. But Mayor George Peary was on the other side of the argument, telling councillors that something had to be done. “I am embarrassed by the moonscape out there on Lefeuvre Road,” said Peary. Both sides compromised and agreed to send it forward with no recommendations. “I think this is a fair way to deal with it,” said Gibson.

1 point = $3 NO CASH VALUE

After the meeting, Peary was still unhappy with the decision. “I’m disappointed that there wasn’t more support around the table. Maybe the Agricultural Land Commission will be less appalled by the idea,” said Peary. He said the city’s Agricultural Advisory Committee supported the boundary realignment, and the 12 smaller properties fit into the city’s plans. “Part of our agriculture strategy is to get young people into farming,” said Peary. Ten-acre farms are easier to purchase than 30 acres, he added.

An Abbotsford businessman wants to turn a former gravel pit into 12 small farms, but he will have to do so without the endorsement of city hall. The Agricultural Land Commission will decide the fate of the properties without help from Abbotsford Council. After a long debate, council voted to send a boundary realignment request to the ALC without recommendations. The dozen connected lots are located on Huntingdon Road (two parcels) and Lefeuvre Road (10 parcels) and vary in size from 0.40 hectares to 8.02 hectares. A former gravel pit that was never restored to functioning farmland, the properties have sat unused for years. They were purchased, between 2005 and 2006, by local farmer and businessman Jasbir Banwait. He wants to change the oddly shaped parcels into 12 more evenly sized lots, ranging from 4.05 to 4.3 hectares each. The plan also calls for 1,225,000 square metres of soil to be brought in to re-grade the site. However, some councillors were concerned the planned changes could create 12 estate properties, rather than functioning farms.

Rearranging chairs

Much has been made of Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet. It’s smaller. It has more women. It has new blood. But are things really different? Most of the ministers were part of the Gordon Campbell administration that pushed through controversial policies like the harmonized sales tax. Does a new premier and rearranging the chairs mean they are no longer accountable for past wrong-doings? Some of the new portfolios seem like a hodge-podge – odds and ends thrown together. What does labour and citizens services have to do with open government? Why is housing with energy and mines? How did the interests of municipalities and regional districts get lumped in with sports and culture? Questions should also arise about some of Clark’s appointments, and particularly Ida Chong as commu-

nity development minister. When Chong was responsible for municipalities and regional districts before, she launched a review of governance in the Okanagan. It created substantial divisions among communities and considerable resources were put towards the process. But at the end of the day, nothing happened. In the North Okanagan, many local politicians lost faith in Chong and Campbell ultimately shuffled her off to another department. Does Clark actually have faith in Chong’s abilities to do the job this time around, or is the appointment more related to the premier’s goal of having more women in cabinet? Time will tell how successful Clark will be as premier, but based on her cabinet, claims of putting a fresh look on government ring hollow. Vernon Morning Star

Going gaga over smart meters Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views This summer, BC Hydro starts installing 1.8 million smart meters to eventually upgrade every electricity customer in the province. This is controversial for several reasons. First, they’re doing it now because former premier Gordon Campbell decreed it must be done by the end of 2012. Second, the smart grid is one of several major BC Hydro projects the government exempted from having to undergo a cost-benefit review by the B.C. Utilities Commission. And, of course, there is the budgeted cost of $930 million, coming at a time when BC Hydro is projecting rate increases approaching 50 per cent over the next five years. When I spoke with BC Hydro smart meter project executive Fiona Taylor last week, she naturally had no comment on

the politics. Smart meters are inevitable, she said, since mechanical meters are obsolete and eventually won’t be made any more. Taylor insists the pending rate increases would be even higher without smart meters. BC Hydro estimates the wireless meters will not only pay for themselves, they will produce a net saving of $500 million over the next 20 years. Even some BC Hydro employees were surprised to hear that, with current technology, the utility has no way of knowing your power is out until you phone them. And when line crews come out to repair a local blackout, how do they determine if the repair is complete? They drive up and down the road to see if people have lights on. If you use a backup generator, they might miss you. Smart meters will have “last gasp, first breath” capability, storing enough energy to send a signal that reports the power has gone out, and another signal when it is restored. As it stands, a repair truck can be dispatched to a reported power failure, only to find that the customer’s main breaker has tripped. There is another concern, which is

that the brief signals emitted every few hours to send readings to a central hub are somehow a health hazard. BC Hydro has retained former Vancouver medical health officer Dr. John Blatherwick to respond to this. He notes that smart meter signals are the equivalent of a three-minute cell phone call once per day, at a much greater distance.

Hydro will spend $930 million to install 1.8 million smart meters for every electricity customer in B.C. These particular radio frequency signals are similar to those used for digital TV. Such signals are also emitted by the spark plugs of a car, by lightning strikes, in fact all visible light and even the infrared generated with your body heat. But there are people who insist they have a greater sensitivity, and there will probably be some generalized hysteria

and system-milking as we saw with the squabble over a power line through Tsawwassen. The NDP is nurturing this flame of discontent as it campaigns against smart meters. It’s popular among the young, and no less an authority than Lady Gaga is the poster girl to warn against wireless Internet in schools. NDP leadership candidate John Horgan is the party’s ranking power expert. He mainly argues that BC Hydro doesn’t need to spend all this money on smart meters right now. But he is careful not to question the tinfoil hat perspective, and risk alienating the ignorant and superstitious vote. This is a key constituency in parts of B.C.

If our council had a stellar track record as far as partnerships are concerned, I could perhaps rest easily. If, for example, taxpayers hadn’t been on the hook for $2.6 million to keep the AESC afloat last year. Or if almost $500,000 hadn’t been required to keep up our part of the bargain with the owners of our local hockey team. Those partnerships are small potatoes when compared to $500 million in upgrades we are told we need for water and sewer. When, in attempting to underscore real HST costs to the taxpayer, I tried to find out what it cost to heat our new hospital, I was told that information was not available to me. When others have tried to get to the bottom of the Heat contract, same answer. Once we enter a partnership to commodify water, we can give up on any hope for transparency. Per-Green Dalton

What that social activist really said Re: Time to enrich the poverty debate (B.C. Views, March 9). I am always astonished how the quote “The poor shall always be with us” is used by people who show very little understanding of theology or compassion for the poor. This particular quote was used by Jesus to remind his followers about their priorities. The complete quote is: “The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.” (Matthew 26:11) When taken in the context of his ministry, it is clear that what Jesus is pointing to is the fact that as long as there are needy people in this world, his followers must always walk with them and support them in their efforts to sit at the table of plenty. Faith-based social activists like myself would suggest that if the teachings of faith were lived out in the political and community structures that we create, poverty would not exist. But as Tom Fletcher said, for 2,000 years we have been struggling with how to open the hearts and minds of people who look at the world through the lens of scarcity and competition; who believe that the more stuff one has the more successful one must be; and whose love of personal comfort and convenience has cost the earth dearly. Poverty is not a simple thing that will be fixed by putting single mothers back to work. It is a complex prob-

lem that will need a range of complex solutions. I challenge you to en-

rich the poverty debate by taking the politics out of this issue and working harder to see

the real human beings behind the numbers. Susan Draper Victoria

No transparency in P3 deals

Since I occasionally sit in on committee meetings at City Hall, I am familiar with the rules – members of the public can listen, but unless they are part of a delegation they are not allowed to contribute to the meeting. The March 10 Water and Sewer Commission Meeting was even less accommodating. Originally billed as an “Open Meeting Agenda”, I found when I arrived that a vote had been taken to eliminate citizens even as audience. I was informed that a repeat of the meeting would be open to the public next Thursday. Interesting. Since the three “Ls” – law, labour and land – are the usual reasons for exclusion of the public, I checked out the agenda. Not a single “L” on the list. Made me wonder what was up. From the 30 seconds or so that I was in the meeting room, I know that Thursday morning’s “delegation” was a presentation on P3s in relation to the supply of Abbotsford’s water.

Nina Pham of W.J. Mouat won an iPod Touch for this impaired driving poster.

Teens get the message Local student wins ICBC poster contest An Abbotsford highschool student has been recognized for understanding the rules of the road. This week, ICBC announced the winners of its poster contest Your Ad Here. It saw students across B.C. in Grades 8 to 11 create ads on one of three topics: impaired driving, speeding or distracted driving. After weeks of voting, Nina Pham from W.J. Mouat Secondary won the fan favourite award and an iPod Touch for her impaired driving ad. “I learned that the penalties for drinking and driving are high

in British Columbia,” said Pham. “My message shows my peers what can happen when they drink and drive. Using facial expressions can help create a comical atmosphere which will catch their attention.” An honourable mention prize was awarded to Alexandra Hawse from Abbotsford Middle School. More than 150 teenagers entered the contest which was aimed at raising awareness about the power of choice. The ads can be seen online at http://apps. icbc.com/campaigns/ youradhere/winners. asp.

Some neighbours raised concerns, but the vote for the city’s 11th SRU was unanimous. “As mayor, I have received no (complaint) calls from neighbours of other SRUs,” said George Peary. Coun. John Smith said things have improved since the city began regulating recovery houses. “It was chaos ... there were boarding houses with all sorts of grief ... now we can deal with unauthorized houses.”

However, under the new agreement, no blasting, drilling or processing will be allowed after 5 p.m. or on Saturdays. “It’s a compromise,” said Jim Gordon, the city’s general manager of engineering and regional utilities, adding that it’s not what either the public or the companies want. Abbotsford Coun. John Smith wanted the decision deferred for six months, to see if new equipment being brought in by the gravel companies would be quieter for the neighbours. “Let’s see how the equipment works, see how it goes before extending the hours,” he suggested. But other councillors disagreed and approved the new hours. Gravel agreements are reviewed every year.

Breast cancer patients being treated at the BC Cancer Agency’s Abbotsford centre and in the eastern Fraser Valley now have access to a breast cancer care coordinator. The registered nurse has special knowledge about cancer and can help guide patients in making decisions about their care and treatment, as well as provide referrals to community support and resources. Newly diagnosed patients, those already receiving treatment, or those in follow-up care will benefit from the two-year pilot program launched this month. The BC Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Region are providing funding for the pilot. Referrals can be made directly by breast cancer patients in the catchment area (Abbotsford, Langley, Maple Ridge, Mission, Chilliwack, or Hope) or their family members, as well as family physicians and surgeons. To make a referral, call 604-851-4710, extension 645278.

B.C.’s minimum wage is going up from $8 an hour to $8.75 on May 1, with two more increases by next year. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement Wednesday after her first cabinet meeting. She called it a “long overdue first step” in a province where the minimum wage hasn’t changed in a decade and is the lowest in Canada. When fully implemented, the pay of a minimum wage worker will increase by about $4,000 a year. The general hourly minimum wage rate rises to $8.75 on May 1, to $9.50 on Nov. 1 and to $10.25 on May 1, 2012. The $6 an hour training wage is also being eliminated this May 1. A lower minimum will be set for restaurant and bar employees who serve alcohol: $8.50 an hour on May 1, $8.75 on Nov. 1 and $9

what’s it all about?

The art of hair

So You Think You Can Sing? Lip Sync Competition features videos of more than 25 local residents lip syncing their favourite tunes for a chance at a share of $2,000 in prizes. As of Thursday, March 17, their short videos will be posted online at abbynews.com.

Abbotsford salon specializes in beauty and spreading knowledge

In addition, each week for five weeks, the contestants will be featured in the print version of The News and online, answering quirky questions to reveal their personalities.

Supporting the arts in every form and inspiring creativity are just two goals of GossipShop Salon.

The competition is split into three categories: adult, secondary school and middle school.

The Abbotsford salon opened two weeks ago on the corner of George Ferguson Way and Gladwin. The business is supporting the So You Think You Can Sing? Lip Sync Competition to encourage the community to embrace its artistic side.

Owner Nichol Moore has a strong love for the arts, which she says overlaps into her work. “To me, hairstyling is a form

of art.” The salon focusses on hair and arming customers with useful knowledge about proper care and styling techniques. “The knowledge aspect is very important to us,” says Moore. “We want to teach our customers how to properly care for their hair and how to style it, because so many times when you get your hair done at a salon you’ll leave looking fabulous and then the next day you’re all thumbs when you try to recreate the look.”

The salon also strives to treat everyone as a valued guest, providing them with a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

When Moore decided she wanted to start the salon, she took into consideration her personal spa experiences and focused on the aspects that she thought other customers would want. One of those things is having exceptional stylists, which Moore says they are proud to

Stanley Cup coming to town Have photo taken with hockey’s Holy Grail, help Canuck Place Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Hockey’s Holy Grail is coming to Abbotsford. The Stanley Cup, along with the Hart Trophy, given out every year to the most valuable player in the NHL, will be on display at The Honda Way in the Fraser Valley Auto Mall on Saturday, March 19. From noon to 5 p.m., hockey fans can come out, and for a donation of $5, have their picture taken with the championship trophy. All proceeds will be donated to the new Abbotsford Canuck Place.

Dryers can be a hazard Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) is reminding residents to regularly clean and maintain their clothes dryer and vent system. Fire prevention officer Steve Oldroyd said AFRS responds every year to clothes dryer fires related to things such as clogged venting systems, air flow restrictions and the use of flexible plastic vent tubing. Oldroyd said as the dryer duct removes lint and moisture from clothes, not all of the lint is captured by the screen or makes it outdoors. This builds up on the sides of the vent system and even-

tually dries to a hard material, creating a restriction that leads to overheating. “A restricted venting system can make the clothes dryer work harder and reduce the appliance life span, causing mechanical failures that can result in a fire,” Oldroyd said. He said a clothes dryer should be maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions, or once a year at a minimum. For more information on fire safety, call 604-853-3566 or visit abbotsford.ca/fire.

Long said a photographer will be on hand to take pictures, which will be emailed to each person after the event. “We are expecting it to be really busy around here,” said Long.

Pilots fly to PIJHL final

Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Pilots are a resilient bunch. The local junior B hockey club capped a comeback from a 3-1 series deficit on Tuesday evening, beating the Port Moody Black Panthers 6-3 at MSA Arena. The victory punched the Pilots’ ticket to the Pacific International Junior Hockey League final, where they’ll face either the Richmond Sockeyes or the Delta Ice Hawks. Those two teams played Game 7 of their semifinal series

last night, but the result was unavailable at press time. “We’re a very resilient group,” Pilots defenceman Travis Grewal said. “We just keep our heads up and keep going.” On Tuesday, the Pilots built a 2-1 lead through two periods, but the Panthers surged ahead with a couple of quick goals in the third period. The Pilots, though, responded with four unanswered goals, with the game-winner coming on a seeing-eye point shot from Grewal Continued on A22

Devon Toews of the Abbotsford Pilots protects the puck against pressure from Taylor Young of the Port Moody Black Panthers.

The W.J. Mouat senior boys basketball team won its opener at AAA provincials on Wednesday, edging the Fleetwood Park Dragons 57-52 at the Langley Events Centre. It wasn't a vintage performance from the Fraser Valley champs, particularly in the rebounding department, as they allowed the smallish Surrey squad to collect 32 offensive caroms. But big games from Gurminder Kang and Sunny Johal powered the Hawks past the Dragons and into the Elite Eight. They play the winner of Wednesday evening's late game between Burnaby South and Oak Bay in the quarter-finals on Thursday (6:30 p.m., LEC). Continued on A22

Playoff push begins in earnest for Heat Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat are locked in a dogfight for a playoff berth, and Jim Playfair made sure the urgency of the situation was impressed on his players on Wednesday morning. About 40 minutes into practice

at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, the Heat head coach called an abrupt end to the proceedings. “I just felt the team was not where they should be in terms of practice habits,” Playfair explained. “I felt if we got off the ice today, we could reload and

place the emphasis and focus on the game Friday night.” Friday’s game, against the Hamilton Bulldogs (7:30 p.m., AESC), marks the unofficial start of the home stretch for the Heat. All 13 games to wrap up the regular season are against North Division foes.

Controlling their own destiny is a positive for the Heat (32-264-5, 73 points), as they need to climb the standings in a hurry. They’re sixth out of seven teams in the North, but they’re just seven points behind the first place Manitoba Moose in the jam-packed division.

Upping the degree of difficulty is the fact the Heat roster is being decimated by injuries and call-ups. Ales Kotalik was recalled by the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, and Cam Cunning’s knee injury is long-term. For more Heat coverage, visit abbynews.com

at the 8:33 mark. Christopher Vinette and Riley Lamb scored two goals apiece for Abbotsford, while Kevin Lourens added a single. “Even in the third period, when they had us down 3-2, I just knew these guys could battle back,” Pilots coach Jim Cowden said. “Every time they’re down, they’re not out. “It’s a good group. They work for each other, battle for each other.” Pilots general manager Jack Goeson, who has been involved with the team since 1988, said Tuesday’s victory represented the first time the Abbotsford team has come all the way back from the dreaded 3-1 series deficit.

"We knew it was going to be a little bit of a jittery start," Hawks coach Sean Beasley said. "We kind of worked out some kinks in the first half, and I thought we adjusted pretty well in the second." The Hawks clearly missed Jesse Coy in the early going against Fleetwood – the sharpshooting Grade 11 guard has been sick in bed the past three days, and Beasley elected not to use him until the fourth quarter. "It was tough playing without him, but I thought we'd rest him as much as we possibly could," the Hawks bench boss explained. Kang, the MVP of the Fraser Valley Tournament, blew up in the second half, racking up 20 of his game-high 25 points after the break. He also pulled down 11 rebounds, while senior centre Johal posted 17 points and 15 boards. Avi Grewal (17 points) and Harp Grewal (12 points) led the Dragons, who shot just 26 per cent (14-for-53) from the field.

Ethel was born in Vermillion, Alberta on April 11, 1923. She passed away in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm on March 12, 2011. Ethel was predeceased by her loving husband of 56 years, Walter in 2001 and their youngest son, George, in 2010. Ethel was very proud of serving her country during WWII. She was stationed overseas in France, Holland, Belgium and Germany. She joined the Royal Canadian Legion as an ex-service woman and recently received her 60 year membership pin. Over the years, she attended many functions and developed many long-lasting friendships. She always looked forward to and enjoyed the companionship of her many ex-service women friends. Mission was Ethel’s home for many years. She always loved the outdoors, working in her gardens, growing vegetables and lots of flowers. Ethel loved nature, animals, travelling, sewing, quilting and knitting. She was well known for her kind and caring ways; her door was always open to everyone. She had a great sense of humour and an award-winning smile. Ethel became the matriarch of the family, being the last surviving member of her generation. She will be sadly missed her children, Harv (Jolayne), Sharon (Pat), Kenneth (Tina-Marie) and Cheryl (Bill); 13 grandchildren and very proud of having 25 great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by her faithful dog, “Kash”. A graveside service will take place in the Hatzic Cemetery, at 2:00 pm Thurs., March 17. Online condolences can be sent through Ethel’s obituary at: www.bowersfuneralsevice.com

Diving into a different world

Embracing a new life Belarus immigrants rely on community resoureces

lex Taranenko appreciates the little things most of us take for granted. The ability to drink water from the tap, walk outside in mild temperatures and wake up to impressive mountain views. Taranenko left his home in Minsk, Belarus in October 2009, seeking a better life for his wife Natallia, son Ilya, and daughters Nadia and Veranika. From the moment they arrived in Abbotsford, the family noticed stark differences from Minsk, which has an estimated population of two million people.

He will receive his engineering certification next year. The family has faced several challenges since moving to Canada, but Taranenko says the journey has been worth it. “When we immigrated to Canada we felt as if it was our home. We weren’t homesick,” he explained. “It’s like a new step forward. You feel as a newborn and you need to just look to the future. If you look back, it will be very difficult.”

There’s thousands of little aspects that you have to look after. Commercial divers are skilled technicians and jacksof-all-trades.” One of the main aspects of his business is reservoir cleaning.

of gallons of treated drinking water. Divers wear fully encapsulated dry suits and helmets to prevent water contamination. “We’re protecting the environment from the diver,” said Korek. “We developed an underwater vacuum cleaner that does not create turbidity. The secret is to remove the sediment without disturbing it.” Other job duties include hull cleaning, ballast tank inspection and maintenance, underwater welding and cutting, and pipeline penetration. Divers typically work 12hour shifts on underwater rotations. Korek said regular equipment maintenance and training is one of the most important aspects of the job. Each project also requires a separate risk assessment, operations manual and final report. “You basically have to do more paperwork than the work itself sometimes,” said Korek.

We’re proud of our city! Here’s what some residents had to say about living in Abbotsford . . . “My City is Abbotsford because… my parents brought my family here knowing this was a place I would have a wholesome small-town childhood while experiencing a diverse community that would teach me love and acceptance and prepare me for the rest of the world. I was able to get an education that prepared me for a career to excel here and anywhere else I may go. Now that I am settled here with Abbotsford as my home, no matter where I am in Abbotsford, whether taking a walk in any of the beautiful Abbotsford parks and trails or sitting on a patio of one its great restaurants or looking out my window at work, in the distance I can see the beautiful mountains on a sunny day and see the unparalleled natural beauty of this city in the country.” Tejinder “My City is Abbotsford because… it has great sports programs for my children, who really excel with the great coaching staff and teachers. Abbotsford has everything you need, great pubs, great restaurants, a store in which you can buy everything from outdoor supplies to groceries, so nice to have one stop to get everything at reasonable pricing. It has the country roads only about 5-10 minutes from the city if you are just wanting to “get away” from it all for the day but not want to drive for hours! It has beautiful walking and hiking trails and a couple of them being right in the city itself. When you are walking on them you get the feel of the country, I’m a small town country girl at heart and have been living in Abbotsford for 11 years now, I love calling Abbotsford my home! Plus we have awesome movie nights every Tuesday, super cheap which is very important to us single mothers who want to do things with our kids that don’t cost a fortune and we enjoy as a family! All in all, Abbotsford is a great place to live and raise children!” Laurie

Here’s how to tolerate heels:

happy life... send her to the Wild Orange spa

Choose right height and take breaks Love your heels? Here’s how to be stylishly comfortable this spring: 1. The right heel. Ideally, the heel should be no more than two inches or your posture may suffer. Stilettos or indented heels provide little support. 2. Time off. High heels

should not be worn every day – they shorten the Achilles tendon and calf muscles. 3. Time out. Give your feet periodic breaks on the days when you do wear heels. 4. Shoe shopping. Shop late in the day – what may be comfortable in the morning

might be too tight at night when your feet are swollen. 5. More shoe smarts. Leather and nylon mesh allow for breathing and flexibility. Ensure the shoes support your arch, and avoid thin or tight straps, which can cause painful swelling.

Passion for Fashion Trethewey House (MSA Museum Society) presents Passion for Fashion on Wednesday, April 13.

my B8 Taking the ‘cheeky’ approach to makeup application >> Thursday, March 17, 2011

A little colour goes a long way when it comes to blush Everybody wants to look fresh and vibrant, whether you are a teenager or a radiant woman in her prime. Having bright cheeks and a warm skin tone gives the appearance of healthy skin and a look of youth. When you start your makeup and apply foundation, in liquid or powder formula, you are evening out the skin tone, reducing the appearance of blemishes and ultimately creating a blank canvas, void of colour. Once you have created this blank canvas, you need to go back and begin to add colour where it’s needed. Blush application is a never-ending topic of confusion for some and I hope to break it down in a simple and fun way. You need to first determine whether you want to create a fresh and natural glow to your cheeks or whether you want to create a more sculpted and defined shape. When you place your fingers on the side of your cheek, you can feel where the cheekbones are. Below the cheekbone is what some people refer to as the “hollow”

of the cheek. Above Chrissy the cheekbone is where you would want to apply a highlight colour. Before applying blush, you should be aware that you will have more control of how much blush colour you are applying if you pick up the blush on one side of your fluffy brush only, leaving the other side clean and available to blend as needed. First, tap off any excess blush, then apply a light touch to the cheeks, using the side of the brush with blush on it. Flip your brush over to the clean side and blend this color until you see no lines, dots or circles. The most common blush application is applying colour to the “apple,” or fullest part of the cheek. When you smile, this is the part that appears round and full. Beginning at least two fingers away from the side of your nose, apply a dot of

Lambert Beyond Beauty

blush to the cheek and blend it up along the cheekbone towards the hairline. If you want to contour your cheekbone, use a shade of blush that is a darker tone than what you used on the apple and apply this to the hollow of the cheek. Bronzer doubles as a great contour shade if you don’t have an alternate blush colour. As you look in the mirror, notice the bottom of your earlobes and draw an invisible line from the ears towards the middle of the face. Stop before you bring your brush too far towards the nose and sweep a line of blush up and towards the hairline, creating a “V” shape from the bottom of the ears to the hairline under the cheekbone. Now that you’ve added colour to the apples and contour to the hollows of the cheek, you can add a highlight. Using an

upward motion, sweep a highlight around the eye area in a “C” shape, which helps reflect the light in a flattering way and also draws the eye upwards, giving the face a more sleek appearance. The highlighting powder or cream you use should have a reflective quality to it and should be shimmery without having glitter. Look for soft and neutral champagne, golden or light pink colours. If you want to warm up your whole face with a bronzing powder, do so by lightly sweeping the bronzer at the top of your forehead, down the bridge of the nose, a smidge on the chin and a quick touch in the hollows of the cheeks. Keep in mind that you don’t need to apply blush to all three areas of the cheekbones at once, but you can if you want to create a more sculpted and defined look. This is one time that it’s okay to be “cheeky.” Chrissy Lambert is a freelance makeup artist and owner of Makeup Infusion. She can be reached at Chrissy@makeupinfusion.com

my

>> Thursday, March 17, 2011

Abbotsford has a great selection of beautiful gowns for grad at different price points, but lower cost alternatives are also available. Prom gown costs depend on a host of factors, but young women can expect their gowns to average between $100 and $500. Such a price tag might be too costly for some, but there are still ways to save. Rentals Young men rent their tuxedos, so there is no reason why a young woman attending the prom shouldn’t have the same luxury, especially for a garment that will only be worn once. A quick search online yields a number of services that offer formal gown rentals. A person also may want to visit bridal shops or formal gown stores in the area. Perhaps some of

them offer rentals on sample gowns. Gown Swap Every woman who has been a bridesmaid at one or more times in her life has a few gowns tucked away at the back of her closet. With a few minor alterations, chances are those gowns can be put to good use on prom night. Ladies can consult with friends and family members to see what type of bridesmaid gown stock is available, then pick and choose among the best options. Consignment Shops Consignment shops, which offer the sale of gently used items at a reduced cost, can be ideal places to scour deals on gowns and other formal wear. Many consignment shops specialize in designer duds, so it’s possible for a shopper to find some-

thing off the runway right on the rack. Discount Retailers Certain close-out stores get the overstock of big-name department stores and designers, or items that are one season behind. Considering prom gown styles don’t change drastically from year to year, shoppers might find a good deal on a dress at a discounted cost. It just

may require a little leg work browsing through the racks. Online Shopping It’s easy and less time-consuming to price shop online. Scouring different online retailers can yield an excellent price on gowns. Just keep in mind the cost of shipping and returns should the gown not fit just right. Sewing Find a family

member or friend who can make a gown from a pattern purchased from the fabric store. This allows a prom-goer to select the style, colour and fabric for a truly one-of-akind creation. With a little ingenuity, young ladies who are attending prom can find a gown for a discounted price and spend their funds on other essentials instead.

Fine Fare & Wine to Pair with Kathleen Rake

More daylight hours means we’re closer to patio season The best thing about daylight savings time, besides the longer days, is the certainty that patio days won’t be far behind. And that means we’re headed for some splendid B.C. whites and rosés. Hester Creek’s Trebbiano ($19.09/13.5% ABV), with its Áoral and stone-fruit aromas and palate-pleasing tropical and citrus Áavours, works as well with eggs Benedict at brunch as it does with take-out Asian fare or a pizza cooked on the grill. Township 7’s Rosé ($15.99/12.9% ABV) is best when well chilled. It’s packed with berry aromas and shows bright berries and

rhubarb on the palate. Considered off-dry, this wine is so easy to enjoy either by itself or served with a corned beef sandwich on rye, slathered with Dijon mustard and accompanied by a dill pickle. But, what about the reds? One of my newest favourite B.C. red wines is the 2007 Hester Creek Reserve Cabernet Franc ($26.00/13.8 % ABV). This wine has beautiful notes of berries, vanilla and tarragon on the nose. The aromas were mirrored as Áavours on the palate, along with hints of chocolate, pepper and liquorice. I had it for the Àrst time just the other night while in Penticton attending the two-day

Do-si-doing for heart The Grand Squares Square Dancing Club of Abbotsford do-si-do’d to raise money in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and Yukon on March 6. The Grand Squares Annual Heart Fund Dance finished the club’s year-long fundraising activities for the foundation with an afternoon comprised of dance, laughter and food. Over 90 square dancers from across the Lower Mainland enjoyed the event which featured dancing, door prizes, food and cash draws. By the end of the afternoon, the group raised $6,644. The Foundation’s Fraser Valley manager Gillian Yardley was on hand to accept the donation and thank the dancers in person. “The Grand Squares aim for the Heart Fund Dance is to spread the word that square dancing is a fun way to meet people and keep your heart healthy at the same time,” said Yardley. “The Heart Fund Dance is a tremendous example of what a community group can do to raise funds for vital heart and stroke research by combining friendship and fitness into one fun afternoon. We are extremely grateful to the Grand Squares for continuing to support us after 34 years.” In 1977, one of the club’s callers, Bill Crosby, survived a heart attack. The inaugural fundraising dance kicked off that year, and in honour of Crosby, the club decided to donate all the proceeds to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Every year since then, the event has continued to be a growing success, with new ways of fundraising in addition to the dancing, silent auction and bake sale. For information about square dancing clubs see www.region2.squaredance.bc.ca.

As Abbotsford firefighers prepared to leave the Stairclimb for Clean Air, they were asked if they would pose for a picture with a woman who completed the climb, in spite of undergoing therapy for her lung cancer. She was Cathie Clarkson, who was featured in a televised story that evening on Global News.

Firefighters climb for clean air

The Grand Squares raised $6,644 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation through their annual Heart Fund Dance.

On Feb. 27, four Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service firefighters climbed the 48-storey Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel in the 10th annual Stairclimb for Clean Air. The event is expected to raise $200,000 this year, in support of the Lung Association of B.C. The money raised through donations contributes to medical research, asthma education, clean air initiatives, and programs to help young people live tobacco free. This is the fourth year firefighters have participated in the stairclimb, trying to make a difference in the health and wellbeing of others in the province. Local firefighters participating were Andrew Mawdsley, Chris Brauer, Sean Eno and Adam Ratvay.

FOOD BANK DONATION

RECYCLING SUPPORT

SKI TO END MS

Collecting for the food bank has become a tradition at the Dasmesh Punjabi School to celebrate Friendship Day on Feb. 14 by giving to the community. The 580 students all took part, and pictured here is Mrs. Black’s Grade 3 class.

The Grade 3 class at Dormick Park Elementary is learning all about recycling, and recently hosted representatives of Cascades Recovery, who announced a $26,947 donation to the Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program.

The MS Society of Canada, Fraser Valley Chapter, partnered with Hemlock Resort to raise over $4,300 during the first Ski to End MS fundraiser on Feb. 20. The participants enjoyed a day in the snow and a ski party.
