NewsBytes SENTENCING IN FLAGGER’S DEATH A B.C. Supreme Court judge in New Westminster has begun hearing arguments that will decide the fate of an 88-year-old Aldergrove man who ran down a flagman in Fort Langley on Feb. 25, 2008. In November of last year, Melle Pool pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death. The pickup truck he was driving westbound on River Road struck and killed 52-year-old Terrance Mitchell, a Pitt Meadows resident working for the Township of Langley. Mitchell was flagging at a road construction site. He left behind a wife and large extended family. Crown counsel Don Wilson says Pool, a retired dairy farmer from Abbotsford, should be sentenced to jail. While Pool has no criminal record, the court has been told that he continued to drive even though his driver’s licence expired in 2001 after doctors declared him unfit because of poor eyesight. Pool’s lawyer is arguing that his client should not be jailed because of his advanced age.

DRUG BUST CHARGES STAYED Charges have been stayed against two people who were arrested in October in a bust that police said had connections to the Duhre Group. Andre Remekie, 29, and Shauna Wilson, 23, were both charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking after police seized $25,000 cash and a small amount of packaged cocaine from an apartment in the 33500 block of Holland Avenue. Those charges were stayed Monday in Chilliwack Supreme Court. The bust was one of three conducted around the same time, resulting in the arrest of five people allegedly associated to the Duhre Group and the United Nations Gang.

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update speciÀc to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofÀce directly at 604-309-6068.

"I like to just keeping pushing the limits and help students get those 21st century skills," she enthused.

Reptile Guy Grow-op ‘break-in’ out of business Abbotsford Police received a call Tuesday afternoon from a man saying there was a breakin at a home in the 2900 block of Babich Street. Const. Ian MacDonald said

Shelter provider puts animals up for sale

by the time police arrived on the scene at about 12:15 p.m., nobody was in the home. The back door had been kicked in and a small grow-op – about a dozen plants – was found.

MacDonald said the initial call was made from a pay phone, and police have been unable to locate the person who placed the call. The matter is still under investigation.

Third investigation

Abbotsford News

The Reptile Guy is out of business. Mike Hopcraft has 100 different animals at his warehouse on Peardonville Road, including a 15-foot Burmese python, tortoises, a camen, an American alligator, spiders, scorpions and other creatures. Now he has listed many for sale, and is looking to find homes for the others. “I don’t have the funds to keep it going, unless some miracle funding comes through.” In March 2009, the provincial environment ministry unveiled new laws to monitor exotic species, and Hopcraft says they have seriously impaired his ability to earn income from his animals. Citing safety concerns, the ministry prohibits Hopcraft from being allowed to have people tour his facilities to see his animals. “You can’t look at my facility, you might get killed,” he said sarcastically. He is also not allowed to have volunteers help with the animals. “I’m fed up with all this sh...,” said Hopcraft.

Mike Hopcraft says government regulations have spelled the end to his reptile shelter in Abbotsford. “The government won. They’ve been trying to get me gone, and they did it.” Hopcraft, 28, has had a lifelong interest in reptiles. He originally wanted to open a pet store, or breed animals, but focused on caring for animals in bad situations. “I realized there’s more of a need for rescue than for a breeder,” he said. Last April, complying with the new regulations, he applied for prohibited species permits for the animals he has rescued and otherwise acquired over the years. He is allowed to keep them, but displaying and transporting them has been curtailed. In December he

was investigated by ministry of environment officials for transporting an American alligator without a permit. Under the Controlled Alien Species regulations, that could result in fines of up to $100,000 or a year in jail. Hopcraft said he had received verbal approval from officials. Showing the animals to an interested public was how he paid his bills. Without that income, he has fallen behind on rent, and his landlord is ready to evict. Hopcraft agrees there should be regulation regarding exotic pets, but said the government “went to the extreme on this.”

and special damages, wage loss, related costs and interest. The claim was filed in B.C. Supreme Court on Feb. 11. It is unrelated to the announcement that same day by the B.C. health ministry that two radiologists who were unqualified or inexperienced misinterpreted the results of CT scans performed at hospitals in Abbotsford and Powell River. The Abbotsford scans were performed between mid-August and mid-September 2010. The vacation relief radiologist in question performed 170 scans during that period, and the results of 10 of those were misinterpreted, according to the ministry.

One of those patients has since died, and the case is under investigation. On Monday, it was revealed that a third doctor, working out of Comox, was being investigated after “significant errors” were discovered in the interpretation of CT scans at St. Joseph’s General Hospital. For 30 years, that radiologist had his credentials to read CT scans. He has surrendered his hospital privileges while the investigation is underway. If you are involved in one of the 10 Abbotsford cases, The News would like to hear your story. Call the newsroom at 604-853-1144. Check abbynews.com for further updates.

Report prank calls A rash of prank calls about sprinkler systems appears to be isolated to North Vancouver and the metro Vancouver area. However, Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) and the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) are asking the public to report any calls they receive from a person purporting to be a fire marshall or a sprinkler repair technician, instructing them to set off their fire sprinkler systems. At least seven hotels and restaurants have suffered damages to their properties since the prank calls began Friday in Vancouver. Any such calls locally can be reported to the AFRS at 604-8533566 or the APD at 604-859-5225.

Mixed money messages If you’ve been wondering about some of the mixed messages coming out of city hall in recent months, you’re not alone. Money is tight, we’re told. Costs are going up. Big infrastructure projects loom. Taxes have to increase, or services and programs will be cut. Loud and clear: These are the realities of challenging financial times. Yet, how do taxpayers reconcile this refrain with decisions which create quite a different perception? With the exception of one councillor, Abbotsford’s elected representatives recently voted to increase the salaries of mayor and councillors by nine and seven per cent, respectively, along with extra health benefits. Those are generous raises, in an economic climate where many people haven’t seen a pay hike for years, or if they have, it’s likely been around one or two per cent. Equally perplexing was the revelation that a new water billing system

will cost $20,000 to send out invoices bi-monthly, instead of once a year. Annual additional cost: $100,000. Add to this flow from the civic cash tap the recent approval of a new policy that will see up to one per cent of new public project costs dedicated to public art. The first example of this initiative went up this week, in a traffic circle at the new McCallum Road overpass and interchange. The soaring piece of metal native artwork comes at a public price tag of $64,000. It will be one of several such investments in coming months and years, as the city proceeds with a new public library, fire hall and other major civic projects, with a lofty maximum of up to $300,000 for public art for each one. Coun. Simon Gibson acknowledges that the timing and optics of this policy are “problematic.” Yes, councillor, they most certainly are, and they’re not in isolation.

Rural voters maintain advantage Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views There aren’t too many benefits to living in B.C.’s vast hinterlands, compared to the southwest where three-quarters of B.C. residents reside. A few advantages of rural life spring to mind: it’s quieter, traffic jams are fewer and shorter, and real estate prices are more reasonable. Another advantage is little noticed, but significant just the same. Rural voters have more clout than their urban counterparts. There can be as many as three times the number of voters in a Metro Vancouver constituency as in one of the remote northern seats, but each gets one MLA. That advantage was reinforced during the 2008 electoral boundary redistribution, when the B.C. Liberal government decided not to eliminate rural seats – a move recommended by an independent commission to equalize representation in

the B.C. legislature. Instead, both the B.C. Liberals and the NDP supported adding six extra seats, in the Fraser Valley, Lower Mainland, Okanagan and Southern Vancouver Island. That narrowed the gap, but the other regions remain over-represented in Victoria. The B.C. Liberal Party has now moved to match this rural clout in its own leadership vote, set for Feb. 26. At a weekend convention, party delegates voted almost unanimously to get rid of the one-member-one-vote system that put Vancouverite Gordon Campbell into the leadership 17 years ago. The new weighted voting system ensures that constituencies with small memberships have the same influence in the leadership contest as those who have signed up thousands of new members in urban areas. A rural member’s vote might be up to 10 times as powerful as one in Surrey, where many new members have been signed up. As one delegate pointed out, this isn’t strictly a rural-urban thing. In NDP strongholds such as East Vancouver or Nanaimo, there are large populations but only a hardy little band of B.C. Liberal stalwarts maintaining membership in a

constituency the party has little chance of winning. There wasn’t much grumbling about this decision. Most B.C. Liberals agreed with the candidates that sticking with a one-member-one-vote system would mean only urban candidates have a chance of leading the party. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett was

The NDP now risks becoming the party of the urban poor, and that’s not a recipe for success. one of those advocating the change to weighted voting, before his noisy expulsion from the B.C. Liberal cabinet and caucus last fall. Still a faithful party member, Bennett urged delegates to adopt the new system, partly because it gives the party “a huge advantage” over the NDP. The NDP is selecting its next leader in

April, using the one-member-one-vote system for the first time. NDP leadership candidates have also signed up thousands of new members, most of them from urban constituencies. The NDP now risks becoming the party of the urban poor, and that’s not a recipe for success. Some rural voters will remember that Glen Clark made his first visit to Prince George only after he became premier. He spoke about how pleased he was to finally visit the north, apparently unaware that he had only reached the middle of the province, with the north still to come. Carole James worked hard for seven years as leader to make the NDP reach out beyond its traditional power base. She was rewarded in 2005 with seats regained in the North Coast, Kootenays and Cariboo as well as traditional areas of strength. It won’t be easy for an urbandominated NDP to retain these far-flung constituencies, much less add to their current seats and form a majority government. The B.C. Liberals have gone a long way to holding their rural-urban coalition together.

REDISCOVER YOUR LIFE...

Insult upon injury Re. Kevin Mills’ article on water and sewer rates. Tell me something, wondrous councilors, how can you justify such enormous unnecessary costs to the taxpayer? You are adding insult to injury by not only raising the rates so high, but spending $20,000 to get our bills every two months. At the rate you are going, young families will be struggling even harder than they are now. And what do you expect pensioners to do, sell their homes and live in cellars? You told us you needed more

money to get our water from another source. You tell us it will promote conservation and detect leaks. But Mayor George Peary let the cat out of the bag when he said, “it would help create cash flow.” More of our money for you to waste. It reminds me of something I read that said, “Soothing words of the foxes, spoken upon taking command of the chicken coop.” The chickens are getting wise to your methods, Let’s hope it is not too late. Gwen Woods

No money, don’t buy I read that the mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, has foregone raises for himself and city heads as an example for future union negotiations. He has also cut council’s office budgets by 40 per cent. It is unfortunate that our council does not have the

foresight to see what the consequences of their greediness will cause, because we know that the city unions will be the next to demand more money. Since the city is in such bad shape financially, why is the city wasting money on parks?

All the useless splurging, when we just closed a pool in Matsqui, which would get much more use than another park. A simple rule we live by in my household – if there is no money we don’t buy anything. Tom Lester

Straight from the heart Gene Murphy’s first solo record is one that is close to his heart, dedicated to the ones he loves. “I hope it makes people feel again,” says Murphy, who recorded All That We’ve Been Through at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver with producer Josh Bowman. Murphy began his musical career as a member of The Rockin Edsells, an act that opened for The Blasters, The Shakin’ Pyramids and the BopCats in the ’80s. The Edsells evolved into a more electrified roots rock band called The Last Wild Sons, who opened for big names like BachmanTurner Overdrive, the Ke n t u ck y Headhunters, Colin James and the Cowboy Junkies. Murphy’s most recent musical endeavour was a country gospel blues band called the Knitting Club, whose members Carol and Barry Keating lend their skills to ‘Roadtrip,’ a song on his latest solo CD. For Murphy, the solo venture was going back to his roots, where his lyrics and tales were backed only by acoustic guitar and the occasional harmonica. Hear Murphy play songs from his solo

Silver Ball fundraiser ‘best ever’

North Poplar commits to Kenyan sister school

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Hospice Society raised more than $60,000 through its annual gala on Saturday, Feb. 5, and the agency’s executive director said the event was a huge success. “It’s the best we ever had (because of) the energy in the room. People were so happy and everything was clicking,” said Debbie Lehmann. The Silver Ball, held at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre, not only raised funds for the Hospice Society, but also celebrated the organization’s 25th anniversary. About 325 people attended the silverthemed celebration. The event included entertainment by the Business in Black dancers, the Punjabi Cultural Bhangra Club of Abbotsford, The

Now or Never Crew break-dancing troupe, and singer Jane Perritt. A silent auction featured 150 items, including a guitar autographed by the Rolling Stones and an autographed Bruce Springsteen photo. The 10 items up for grabs in the live auction included a day with the mayor, a day with the police department, and a day with Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service. Lehmann said one of the most popular activities of the evening was a raffle for a $20,000 diamond and opal pendant donated

by Brian Lee of Lee’s Fine Jewellery. It was won by Cecilia Codoceo. Funds from the evening go towards the hospice society’s operating budget, rather than to its three-year, $7.5-million capital campaign in support of its Campus of Care facility adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. That project will feature an adult hospice in partnership with Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children with chronic disabilities.

Helping horse rescue The Circle F Horse Rescue Society wants to acknowledge the work of the Abbotsford Community Foundation. The foundation administers the Mary Victoria Wakefield Animal Welfare Fund, which was set up by Wakefield’s niece, Darcy Bowie. From this reserve, Circle F has been granted $1,300 toward veterinarian costs for 2011. Each year a number of the horses in the society’s care can have injuries or other health issues SUBMITTED PHOTO that bring substantial vet bills. The Darcy Bowie, a niece of Mary grant will help defray those costs. Wakefield, presents a check to Another grant of $1,079 was also Walter Paetkau, president of Circle awarded for the purchase of an F Horse Rescue. Ecowash n Vac. This water-based power vacuum will help to clean the horses’ coats, which can often be penetrated by irritating materials. Abbotsford is fortunate to have a foundation that addresses so many needs in the community, said Walter Paetkau, president of the society.

THE WINNING TEAM The Bantam Hawks won the Ultimate Youth Sports Team Contest sponsored by the Team 1040 Sports Radio and MarketPlace IGA. The team was selected for the volunteer community work performed in December for the Angel Tree. The team won $2,000 and plans to spend the majority of the funds on tournaments.

For the past five years Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts (ASIA) North Poplar elementary has been partnered with a primary school in Kenya, East Africa. It is one of 32 schools that surround the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, which is a 90,000-acre not-for-profit wildlife sanctuary near the foothills of Mount Kenya. Project Kenya Sister Schools and the conservancy work together to connect Canadian and Kenyan schools. Once North Poplar was selected by the Conservancy Trust to partner with Uaso Nyiro Primary School, the process of relationship building and fundraising was begun. The school sold Christmas cards with the artwork of Kenyan students, as well as ornaments, necklaces and keychains made by Maasai mothers. The school has hosted popcorn sales, movie days, coin drives, spelling bees, bottle drives, raffles and most recently students sent friend-o-grams which included heart soapstones or leather bracelets made by Kenyan artisans. On March 31, at the ASIA North Poplar African Art Gala hosted at The Reach Gallery and Museum from 7 to 9 p.m., a silent auction will be held with all proceeds going to support the education on Kenyan children. Students of North Poplar and Uaso Nyiro communicate through letters, art work and disposable cameras. In July, four teachers from North Poplar will be travelling to the sister schools to visit the classrooms and work with the students and teachers. In May, all students in the school will be performing the musical, The Lion King, after a year-long integrated study of Africa.

UFVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gaukel a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;special playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Local rivals to clash in playoffs Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Next week, the stakes go up in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball rivalry between Columbia Bible College and the University of the Fraser Valley. The two Abbotsford programs clash in the first round of the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association (BCCAA) provincial championships, which run Feb. 24-26 at UBCOkanagan in Kelowna. The CBC Bearcats, seeded third in B.C. and ranked No. 9 nationally, had a shot at a first-round bye, but they dropped an epic five-set match (20-25, 29-27, 18-25, 29-27, 17-15) on the road against the Douglas Royals in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season finale. That loss sets up a playoff date between the Bearcats (9-5) and the sixth-seeded Cascades (5-9). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a fun rivalry,â&#x20AC;? CBC head coach Rocky Olfert noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be in for a really tough match, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better come ready to play. They always seem to play well in the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? On the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side, the fourth-place Cascades (8-6) open the playoffs against the Camosun Chargers (6-8), while the sixth-seeded Bearcats (3-11) take on the Capilano Blues (10-4). Future Shop â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Correction Notice Please note that the Samsung R540 laptop (10162495) advertised on pg 7 of the Feb 11 Future Shop flyer should have 512MB of integrated graphics, NOT 512MB of dedicated graphics, as previously advertised. As well, please be advised that the Gateway DX4850-43C (10160491) and FX6850-47C (10160705) PCs, advertised on page 8 of the same flyer, will no longer be available for purchase due to manufacturing issues.

COLUMBIA BEARCATS BCCAA BASKETBALL PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

UFV Athletics

Fifth-year UFV forward Alyssa Gaukel, pictured above in action against SFU, plays her final home games this weekend.

Alyssa Gaukel, in both a literal and figurative way, has helped lay the foundation for the University of the Fraser Valley womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball program. Gaukel was head coach Al Tuchschererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first recruit when the Cascades jumped from the collegiate ranks to Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) five years ago. No other UFV hoopster â&#x20AC;&#x201C; male or female â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been around for the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire CIS tenure. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also technically accurate to refer to the Envision Athletic Centre, UFVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home gym, as The House That Alyssa Built. In 2007, Gaukel worked with her dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebar company for the summer, and the company won a bid

to work on the gymâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special player in our program,â&#x20AC;? Tuchscherer said of Gaukel, who plays her final home games as a Cascade this weekend, as UFV hosts the Brandon Bobcats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a big reason why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had so much success this year.â&#x20AC;? Gaukelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-year run with the Cascades has been a bit of a roller-coaster. When she joined the program out of Chilliwack Secondary for the 2006-07 season, she was the lone freshman on a very experienced team that would make two consecutive Canada West playoff appearances. After two years of deferring to her elders, Gaukel Continued on A23

Cascades host Bobcats this weekend suddenly found herself cast in the role of veteran after heavy graduation losses. Her transition into the leadership role, both on and off the court, has peaked this season, as she helped the Cascades clinch a playoff spot after a two-year absence. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth in team scoring (8.5 points per game) and third in rebounding average (4.1). With her final home games looming, Gaukel said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of mixed emotions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit of sadness, a little bit of excitement,â&#x20AC;? she said, alluding to the fact that there are still playoff games to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went by super-fast. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a five-year journey.â&#x20AC;? A big part of Gaukelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy at UFV pertains to her work ethic. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent countless hours

in the gym honing her shot, and her .330 percentage from three-point range is good for 14th in Canada West this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always talk about her at our camps,â&#x20AC;? Tuchscherer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tell kids

that if you want to be a good shooter, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be like Alyssa.â&#x20AC;? Q The Cascades basketball teams host Brandon on Friday (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and Saturday (women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.). The UFV women

(10-12) have already secured a playoff berth, and are looking to clinch the No. 7 seed. The Cascades men (8-14) are chasing the Calgary Dinos and Manitoba Bisons for the final Canada West playoff spot.

Three Little Words We Love You! We Love You! Love you always Mom, and Family TRY A bcclassified.com CLASSIFIED AD.

ON BEHALF OF MY WIFE Shirley Johnston and myself, we want to thank all our friends, relatives, organizations, neighbours for all the nice get well cards and lovely flowers, phone calls, visits, they were all much appreciated. Shirley fell on some ice on Jan 5th, 2011 & broke both of her arms just below the shoulders. Special thanks to Doug Pearson (at the scene), Dr. Henderson, Dr. Pomeroy, Dr. Korelsen, staff at Mission Memorial Hospital, both E.R. & second floor. No one could wish for more or better care, you were all No.1 in our eyes, keep up the good work “Mission”. It’s been 6 weeks now and healing is progressing. It has been a challenge? You can imagine, not having the use of hands and arms. Also, thanks to the home care ladies and a very special thank you to our daughter and husband (Pam & Geo) for being there, always ready to help, you have done so much for us. Love you Shirley, “yes” you are broken, getting older, but o goody, I am going to keep you. By the way, Happy 80th birthday tomorrow, Feb 18th.

Take a stroll around Mill Lake. With pleasant walking paths and a picnic area, it’s something you can enjoy year-round.

[3]

Catch an Abbotsford Heat game. You can’t beat professional hockey in your own city and there’s no rush-hour traffic to contend with.

[4]

Family Arts at The Reach Gallery Museum. Free on Sundays from 1- 3 p.m. on Feb. 27, Mar. 27, Apr. 17, May 15, June 19. A fun way to spend some family time creating masterpieces. Pre-registration is required. Call 604-864-8087.

Wearing many hats Chelsea HAEBER Contributor

Pastor Mitch Borrows starts his summer days off with a little stroll, leaving his Abbotsford home around 8 a.m. and arriving at work about five minutes later. Borrows, an employee of Abbotsford Christian Assembly since 1995, has been the senior pastor for the past six years. His daily agenda constantly changes, and is not the regular nine to five. It’s more like a 24/7 job, he said, explaining that he is always on call. Borrows’ workday begins on his laptop, with a few hours spent each morning checking and sending emails. The large desk in his office is lined with books and framed photos of wife Bonnie and three children – Sarah, 21, Amy, 19 and Jordan,16. Being a pastor is a busy job and muti-tasking seems to be an understatement – Borrows preaches, teaches, prays, studies, and councils. It’s like being the CEO of a multi-faceted organization and pulls your emotions in 50 directions, he said. Borrows lists the top three responsibilities of being a pastor as leading the organization, counseling and care, and preaching to the congregation. On Sunday, he speaks to the people at his church, delivering a speech that takes more than eight hours to prepare. To many, the thought of public speaking is dreaded, yet it’s something with which he has become comfortable. However, like everyone else, he still gets butterflies on the rare occasion.

wildthings Although the change of seasons is still a month away, spring style is already ripe for the taking. It’s time to leave behind the dark neutrals and classic textures of fall and winter, and reach for the fresher colours and more vibrant patterns of the new season ahead. Shades like lavender, coral, honeysuckle pink, and tangerine take centre stage, while neutrals such as crisp white, camel and navy serve as the backdrop. Patterns range from geometrics and abstracts to florals and animal prints.

LIGHT, FRESH AND LIVELY: That’s what spring style 2011 is all about!

HAPPY LIFE... send her to the Wild Orange spa

Twice-a-day regimen recommended There’s no time like the beginning of a new year to pledge personal improvements, so how about a real commitment now to revitalizing your skin? Periodic updating of complexion care is always advised, say der matologists – and customizing it now is even better. The non-stop increase in environmental assaults like pollution, allergens, wind, and harsh sunlight, combined with the constant challenges of the aging process, can all impact the skin’s ability to renew itself. Daily attention is needed to keep it vibrant. The exfoliation of dead and dull skin cells every day is as important as proper cleansing and moisturizing, experts say. Regardless of skin type, a gentle buffing will quickly reveal a more youthful glow. The key is to deter mine just the right strength of exfoliation for you. The right one will enhance skin function and prep it to receive

hydration. Twice-daily buffing will soon result in a clearer, smoother, and more translucent complexion. A twice-daily routine of customized cleansing and exfoliating is the best way to achieve the healthiest looking skin. This process will remove dirt, oil and residue; clear away the last traces of soap or cleanser; unclog pores and minimize their appearance; strengthen the skin to make it more resistant to environmental impurities; and prepare it for the benefits of a moisturizer. To help maintain skin’s moisture equilibrium, new products on the market use buf fering agents like hyaluronic acid, glycerin and trehalose. In addition, a g raduated level of salicylic acid, (a dermatolo gist staple) will promote cell tur nover and remove dead skin. When designing your own re gimen, find products that are customiz ed for your skin type: oily, combination oily, dry combination, and very dry to dry.

When you hit your ‘beauty stride,’ it all clicks Listen to that inner voice that exudes confidence and pride I realize that not everyone enjoys running. I can’t say that I hate it, but I definitely don’t love it either. I personally enjoy forms of exercise that don’t feel like it at the time, such as group dancing classes or organized sports. Regardless of my general dislike for running, I find myself drawing on a phrase from the running world in this particular tidbit on beauty and makeup. It’s about hitting your stride and finding that maximum level of confidence in your own beauty. I’m sure that a lot of the runners out there can attest to the fact that they don’t ease into a comfortable pace as soon as their feet hit the pavement. There’s a certain speed at which you begin, an internal gauge of your breathing pattern, and other physical signs that allow you to determine whether you are comfortable with the pace at which you propel your body forward.

Hopefully sooner than later, your body Chrissy settles into an easy and natural pace that feels familiar – when there is still effort, but not overwhelming struggle. When you’ve reached this point, you could say that you’ve “hit your stride.” A lot of women may still be attempting to hit their own beauty stride by finding that one trick or makeup technique that they know no matter what happens, they can fall back on and feel confident about as they face the rest of their day. It’s about knowing that you can apply red lipstick in the dark and walk into the light with a perfect pout. It’s about mastering a smoky eye and making it happen in two minutes or less. It’s about applying a gorgeous high-

Lambert Beyond Beauty

you thought to yourself, “I know what I’m doing. I feel comfortable. I’m beautiful. I have got this figured out and not only can I keep up the pace, but I have all the tools to look good while doing it.” It’s a good place that I hope every woman will get to in her life. When we stop fighting against our natural tendencies and start listening to the inner voice that tells us we are beautiful because of the unique qualities we’re made of, we take on the world with a greater confidence and a natural radiance that spills out. Hitting your beauty stride can happen at any age, so get ready to high five yourself when the effort you make is small, but the rewards in confidence are big.

I don’t think that I personally hit my beauty stride until a few years ago. One of my biggest struggles had to do with my naturally curly hair and how to style it. The bottom line of this short story is that I stopped struggling and just let it be, in its natural form. Today, not only do I feel more confident and like myself most with curly hair, I lose less sleep because I’m not waking up early to try to work against it by straightening the curls. Perhaps you’ve already hit your beauty stride and you don’t even know it. It was that simple moment where

Spring looks influenced by the ‘60s and ‘70s ‘Green’ styles and sportswear designs also popular Spring is all about updating and reinventing great garments that work well – from old favourites to wardrobe classics. For women, it’s either short or long. Maxi-dresses and skirts in fluid materials are feminine and easy to wear both for day and evening. Shorter looks are ’60s-inspired with sharp cuts and colours. Think bright tomato-red shorts and a matching silk shirt with gilt buttons. Accessories play a key role, too. Team stacks of bangles in graphic red, black and white with a pair of red ballerina flats. The season’s trends make perfect wardrobe essentials, and pieces that play with fabric and form will quickly become part of your everyday look. For men, the utility style based on khaki green grows even stronger, especially when it’s a khaki blazer or uniform jacket. It’s all about function, comfort and simplicity, and wearing everyday

Styling is key, like combining khaki with black and adding some leather accessories.

Fine Fare & Wine to Pair with Kathleen Rake

Where do you go if you want to learn about wine? My advice? Go to as many wine festivals as you can because that’s where wineries and wine agents are concentrated in one space. The Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival (Mar. 28–Apr.3) is the ideal opportunity to taste wine, talk to winemakers and take in seminars. This year’s Playhouse Wine Fest regional theme is Spain and the global focus is fortified wine, but you’ll find all sorts of other wines, including a good representation of B.C.’s best. Having dinner with a winemaker and winery general manager is another way to learn. Rob Summers (winemaker) and Mark Sheridan (general manager) of Hester Creek Estate Winery recently hosted us for dinner at Il Giardino in Vancouver. First they poured the 2009 Pinot Blanc ($15.99/13.8% ABV), which was a perfect complement to my crab and avocado salad. Next up was the 2008 Reserve Merlot ($25.99/14.2% ABV) that was far more complex than I expected and had the structure and flavour to stand up to my herb-crusted rack of lamb. Afterward, they shared details about three new blended wines

they’ll be introducing at the Playhouse Wine Fest: The Judge, Character Red and Character White. Join a wine club and go to its tastings. Once a month, I attend the Thursday Night Swirl at the Ramada Plaza in Abbotsford. Each Swirl, hosted by Whatcom Wine & Spirits, is themed to a particular aspect of wine. March 17, for

instance, is the night you can learn to make sense of the terms on the oftenconfusing labels of European wines. Of course, tasting a wine from each of the countries will enhance the learning. For more wine-soaked musings, visit Kathleen Rake at her blog, www. BetweenTheVines.ca

Ivory Coast is one of five up-and-coming Abbotsford bands that will play in the Battle of the Bands contest on Friday.

Kerrie-Ann SCHOENIT Abbotsford News

Five local bands will face off on Friday in the second annual Battle of the Bands contest. Organized by Youth Church Abbotsford and Alderking Productions, the competition features Ivory Coast, A New Divide, Mech City Busk, The Birch Taxis, and Poppy and the Pistols. “It’s a safe place for youth to come hang out and provides an opportunity and space for local youth bands to play and be showcased amongst their peers,” said event organizer Jon Wiebe. “It’s really something that will appeal to everyone.” Each band has 15 minutes to perform before judges, who will tabulate their scores and crown the winner. The judging break will feature a drime (drama and mime) performance by Power to Change, set to contemporary music. The winner is invited back on stage for a

15-minute encore and receives a recording session at The Sound Suite in Abbotsford. The runner-up is awarded a band photo shoot with Kat Scheer Photography. Ivory Coast is an alternative-indie quintet composed of Scott Currie, Rhys Burnell, Dave Dueckman, Steve Dahl and Kristof Schlagintweit. The students from Yale Secondary and MEI formed the band in 2009 and have already released two EPs and performed at several venues across the Fraser Valley, including the Abbey Arts Centre and Maple Ridge Arts Centre and Theatre. A New Divide emerged on the music scene early last year, playing alternative-punk-pop. Four months later, the budding musicians found themselves featured on CTV News Canada, and performing on the same stage as music legends like ZZ Top and The Tragically Hip. Tyler Born, Matt Appenheimer, Ryan Krahn and Braedon Thiesen

just finished recording their debut five-track EP with Steve Klassen at The Sound Suite. The Birch Taxis are a rock-pop-indie band that’s been playing shows and writing music for about a year and a half. Aaron Dawson, Eleano Krahn, Matt Janzen and Scott Currie recently released their debut EP titled The Fire Alarm. Mech City Busk is a garage rock band featuring Alex Macdonald on guitar, Alex Vevers on drums, and Zachary Keely and Kier Junos on guitar. Poppy and the Pistols is a blues-punk-rock trio featuring brothers George, Josh and Levi Penner. Doors to the Ag-Rec Building open at noon, with an indoor skatepark and Xbox 360 gaming zone. Parents must sign a waiver for all teen skaters. The Battle of the Bands competition kicks off at 7 p.m. The Ag-Rec Building is located at 34270 Haida Drive.
