Jonathan Field gently bonds with a young horse during a recent colt starting competition in Tennessee.

ROAD TO THE HORSE

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

Abbotsford horse expert Jonathan Field rode a colt through an obstacle course to the enthusiastic cheers of 6,000 fans in Tennessee last Sunday. He had transformed a wild horse into a trained companion in just

four hours over a weekend, through “natural horsemanship.” As he achieved the greatest moment of his life as a horseman, his mind turned back to one of his worst times. He was 19 years old in 1996 when his left hand was all but amputated

in an industrial accident. He was working for his father’s drilling business in the bush of the B.C. Interior, when a 500-pound piece of steel slammed down on his wrist. With his good hand, he held his mangled arm against his body, Continued on A5

obstacle course. Field was asked to represent Team Canada, with his partner Glenn Stewart of Fort St. John. They took on an American duo, and another from Australia. It started on March 9, with the three teams choosing their colts. For the competition, 10 wild quarterhorse colts were brought from the Four Sixes Ranch – a big, historic spread in Texas. The animals have had only brief human contact for veterinarian services, but have otherwise never been touched. “They’re really frisky. They’re three years old, strong – there’s a lot of horse there,” said Field. A horse under four years old is considered a colt.

while two co-workers loaded Field into a pickup and sped him to 100 Mile House. They arrived just minutes before blood loss would have taken his life. Ten hours of surgery re-attached the arm. That was followed by several more surgeries, and years of physiotherapy. Field regained the use of his arm, but not his desire to take over the family business. His mind was branded with traumatic images, like the pickup that seemed filled with his blood. He pondered what he really wanted to do with his life, and came back to his love of horses. He had grown up up with them in Bradner, leaving school at the age of 15 to become a working cowboy in Merritt. So, he pointed his boots back in that direction. These days he splits his time between Abbotsford and the 600acre James Creek Ranch in the Nicola Valley, which he owns with his father Larry. Field has become an expert horseman. He tours North America 180 days of the year, teaching people about natural horsemanship. It is a system of developing a relationship with a horse, rather than breaking it. He doesn’t dominate the animal, but forms a partnership, in which the horse wants to be with him. Field maintains it is a theory so old it has Robin Duncan Photography.ca become new again, and Jonathan Field rides his colt through an obstacle course during the Road to the Horse competition. over a four-day course he teaches it to dressage They each picked their animal – drawhim to be a good riding horse for life.” riders, jumpers, trail riders and other ing from a hat for who chose first.

Tricks of the trade

Given only a couple of two-hour sessions, how does one train an unridden horse – a process that can normally take weeks? There’s no Hollywood “horse whispering.” But it is that subtle.

Just like hockey fans in Montreal who know when to cheer a great play, they showed their appreciation. “They know how hard this is,” he said, to take a horse that is wild on a Friday and by Sunday “ride an obstacle course on that last day like they’ve been ridden for years.” Field’s horse turned out to be extremely sensitive, and he had to take it slow. It took him extra time to clear the obstacle course. He gave the nervous colt time to sniff things and get used to its surroundings. “I didn’t push him that hard. I wanted

yield. He gives him a moment to ruminate on that, and then controls the animal’s feet. He uses the reins and rope, moving the animal’s body and feet to show it how he wants it to move – all before getting in the saddle. Then he’s on and off the horse frequently, showing it how he wants it to step. It’s all about body language. “If you do what they do in the herd, they are one of the fastest learners in the animal kingdom.”

‘Unaware of surroundings’ Drivers commit infractions within sight of flashing police lights

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Speeding, tailgating, texting and yakking on cellphones are the top traffic infractions Abbotsford drivers complain about, and apparently for good reason. Earlier this week, the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) traffic and patrol section converged on the intersection of Mt. Lehman Road and Fraser Highway, as part of stepped up traffic law enforcement. A total of 44 tickets were issued for offences such as speeding, running red lights and using handheld devices. The blitz also resulted in two arrests – one for prohibited driving and another for a previous domestic assault. Sgt. Casey Vinet said a plainclothes officer stood at the intersection and radioed infractions to officers waiting ahead. He said it was surprising that a number of drivers were caught speeding, making illegal U-turns or using cellphones not far from the

intersection – where uniformed officers and patrol cars with flashing lights could be seen. “We’re finding that many of these drivers are not aware of their surroundings, and that’s a big concern,” Vinet said. He said drivers are continuing to use handheld devices, despite new laws that came into effect a year ago. The traffic unit issued 380 related tickets in 2011, and have already handed out 175 so far this year. Vinet said much of that is due to the traffic squad having increased its staffing this year, with the hiring of four additional officers. He said a common occurrence is motorists who hold their cellphone near their lap while they text during a stop. In one such case, a plainclothes officer walked up to the car window, and the driver was so busy texting that she didn’t notice anyone was there. Continued on A6

The realities of policing Junior academy exposes students to the job Tyler ORTON Contributor

About a dozen teenage boys are huddled in a firing range, their hands deep in their pockets on an exceptionally cool March afternoon. Const. Pete Quaglia of the Abbotsford Police Department addresses the Grade 11 and 12 students between the cracks of gunfire. This afternoon’s lesson at Junior Police Academy (JPA) is proper Taser use. The APD training officer recounts a story of an American cop who left a charged stun gun in his pocket after arresting a suspect. The boys chuckle when Quaglia tells them the arrestee thought the cop was having a heart attack after the improperly stored weapon zapped the officer. About 20 high school kids are spending seven of their spring break days learning as much as they can about being a cop. Just showing up is proof of the students’ dedication. JPA kicked off March 10, the day after school got out for spring break. By the time it wraps March 16, students will have spent 12 consecutive days in a learning environment, be it school or police academy. “It’s for high-flying kids,” JPA co-ordinator Const. John Davidson explains, adding it’s probably one of the only youth programs at the APD not focused on reaching out to teens in need of extra guidance.

After shortlisting the program’s applicants, Davidson assigned students like Brendan Forster to do ride-alongs with police officers in the weeks leading up to the academy. “The ride-along, that is truly an amazing thing. People don’t understand how much is going on in Abbotsford,” Forster says. The Grade 12 student spent about six hours in a cruiser with a police officer. He says he applied for JPA for the simple reason that his first career choice is working for the Abbotsford police. “The community’s helped me so much. I want to try to give something back,” Forster says. Upon graduating from Robert Bateman Secondary this June, he plans to study criminology at the University of the Fraser Valley before applying to either the APD, the RCMP or the Canadian Forces. “All I’ve ever really wanted to do is become a police officer and this is probably one of the best things you can take,” Forster says just a few hours after firing a pistol, a shotgun, a semi-automatic and an automatic rifle at the Abbotsford Fish & Game Club. But Davidson explains the academy isn’t just about learning to use weapons.

NewsBytes FLARE SCARE Abbotsford Police, Fire Rescue Service and ambulance crews were called to a report of a suspected pipe bomb at about 2 p.m. Tuesday in the 2300 block of McCallum Road. When they arrived, they found a backpack with several sticks of what appeared to be explosives. The explosive devices unit determined the items were parachute flares. It is not known how or why the items were placed there. Parachute flares provide a bright light and are used in distress situations, such as in search and rescue operations or to alert oncoming vessels of a boat’s position.

of mock scenarios where they respond to anything from a noise complaint to pulling over a driver. W.J. Mouat student Mitchell Flann says

these types of learning experiences have been invaluable, especially since the police use actors to make the situations as realistic as possible. “The first scenario

we did was actually a death notice where we had to go to someone’s door and tell them your family’s dead,” the Grade 12 student says, adding it still hit him hard when he informed

an actor his fictional wife passed away. “Ultimately, the scenarios are really cool,” Flann says. “It’s a good way of testing what we know of the law.” But even before get-

ting to do these activities, eligible Grade 11 and 12 students must go through a considerable vetting process. The teens must pass fitness tests, complete background checks, fill

out a sizeable amount of paperwork and go through an extensive interview. Davidson said this process alone can be a great learning experience even for those who

don’t make it all the way to the end. He notes many of the young participants hadn’t even sat down for a job interview prior to the JPA application. Flann says he was on the fence about a career as a cop before the academy, but after only a few days at JPA he realized policing was something he was truly excited to pursue. Davidson says the program is equally successful if students complete JPA and realize being a cop is not a career for them. “Really, it can either make or break their dream of becoming a cop,” he says. But for teens like Forster and Flann, JPA has only reaffirmed their desire to police.

Vinet said police are concerned about the inattentiveness of such drivers. “If you take your eyes off the road for even a second, it could change your life.” The blitzes this year include automatic licence plate recognition – the use of a specially equipped vehicle to detect stolen plates/ vehicles, prohibited drivers and uninsured vehicles. Last month, the APD presented its 2012 strategic plans and its goals for the year. Among them was to reduce traffic-related injuries by 25 per cent after recording 13 vehiclerelated deaths in 2010 and four in 2011. “The enforcement is about reducing injuries and death in our city. Too many people have been killed or seriously injured in what we believe are preventable collisions,” Vinet said. Traffic enforcement will continue throughout the year in areas which have been identified as high-crash zones. Among them are: 1. Lonzo Road and Sumas Way 2. Mt. Lehman on- and off-ramps for Hwy. 1 3.King Road and McCallum Road onand off-ramps 4. Marshall Road and Sumas Way 5. Clearbrook Road on- and off-ramps

Memories of Japan Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

It was difficult for Michael Luzia of Abbotsford to watch the TV news reports last Sunday, marking one year since the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. He had been there when it happened – and for months afterwards – and it was still so fresh in his mind. But it was important for him to acknowledge the anniversary. “It’s not easy to go through again, but it’s something I wanted to do,” he said, adding that his family helped him cope with the strong emotions that emerged. On March 11, 2011, Luzia was teaching English at a small school on the northeast island of Izushima – not far from Sendai, the city most devastated by the disaster – when the earthquake struck. The school and all its occupants, including 28 students, were spared from the devastation of the tsunami that followed, due to its location on a high hill. But they soon experienced the consequences of Mother Nature’s wrath. Many of the students lost parents and other relatives. Most lost their homes, including Luzia, who was living in a small apartment in Onagawa, about 50 km northwest of Sendai. His girlfriend, Hui Wen Shi of China, was in the apartment when the earthquake struck and barely

It took Luzia about two weeks to be able to return to his home in Abbotsford, and he did so with the intention of going back to Japan, after raising awareness and funds for the relief efforts. Luzia returned to Japan at the end of April and spent the next four months there, completing his teaching contract at three schools in Onagawa with students ages six to 15. He said it was difficult to go back to such devastation, with many families having moved to other areas because their towns had been decimated. Luzia was touched

by the strength of the people, who believe that it’s not proper to talk about their difficulties. “What I noticed most is that Japanese people don’t ask for help.” He was instructed not to discuss the tragedy with his students, but one young boy opened up to him after class one day, telling Luzia how he was having difficulty coping with the death of his grandmother. “I told him it was OK to talk about it,” Luzia said. While there, Luzia arranged for a group of school principals to meet and come up with a list of items they needed. He then ensured that money raised in Abbotsford

and three other B.C. communities – Steveston, Esquimalt and Nelson – went towards those things, including survival items such as lifejackets and canvas tents, as well as a range of school supplies. Luzia completed his teaching contract at the end of August, and has been back in Abbotsford ever since. Hui Wen Shi joined him when he was in Japan, and visited him in Canada for two months late last year. Luzia is now completing language studies at University of the Fraser Valley – he is adding Chinese and Korean to his repertoire – and hopes to join his girlfriend in China in the fall. He would like to return to teaching, although he’s not sure where. But Japan, and its people, will remain close to his heart. “They are the strongest people I’ve ever met,” he said.

QUESTION

Sex show poll

OF THE WEEK

Do you support the Kony 2012 campaign?

To all you people working so hard to ban the sex show, you are pathetic. If you don’t like it, that’s fine, don’t go ... we won’t miss you. If you focused your energy on something worthwhile rather than trying to control other people, that would be great. Sarah McGeorge

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

I do have to say that your comment is a bit shortsighted. Please check history and find out which societies deteriorated and became extinct and why. Primarily because of sexual exploitation, not when sex has been practised between a woman and a man in a marriage relationship. Just some food for thought. Werner Klotz

Do you feel this year’s municipal tax increase should have been lower than 1.66 per cent?

The show is behind closed doors, age restricted, and not mandatory to attend. Why is this an issue? Go, or don’t go. It’s that simple. Dee Glendon

281 RESPONDED:

YES: 71% NO: 29%

Beyond the Kony 2012 phenomenon Andrew

Holota

On Point By now you’ve heard of Kony 2012. If you haven’t, Google it. Why? Not so much because of what it’s about, although that’s compelling; but rather because what it actually is – a social mediabased campaign the likes of which the world has not previously seen. Kony 2012 is a video, created by an organization called Invisible Children. It focuses on Joseph Kony, the Ugandan head of a militia force known as the LRA – the Lord’s Resistance Army. Kony tops the International Criminal Court’s list of people indicted for some of the most heinous crimes against humanity. In the case of Kony and the LRA, it is the abduction of thousands of children to be used as child soldiers and sex slaves. Extreme acts of violence, including facial mutilation, are among the horrific deeds of this so-called rebel force, and its leaders.

Kony 2012 is a call for action to stop this man – via world and in particular American intervention in Uganda, where Kony used to be based. The elusive leader and his militia are now believed to be in the neighbouring Central African Republic. Recently, the U.S. sent 100 military “advisers” to Uganda to assist that country’s forces in getting Kony. So far, they’ve not been successful. Almost overnight, the Kony 2012 video went viral on YouTube and Facebook. To date, it has received 80 million views. It has captured the imagination and support of millions of people around the world. Kony 2012 is one of the most effective pieces of social media marketing ever created. It is visual, it is emotional, and it is simple. It focuses attention on the plight of Ugandan children – a motherhood issue if there ever was one. It clearly identifies the bad guy. And it provides an avenue of action – forward a link, “like” a site, and if you’re really motivated, make a donation to the organization, and get an “action kit” of stickers, posters, a T-shirt and a wristband, which has an identification number which when tapped into the

website, makes this campaign trackable and quantifiable. The initiative is fascinating, if not disturbing. It has tapped deep into the new generation, who live in a Facebook world. The vast majority of them never heard of Kony or the LRA before. They do now.

What will be the next campaign to harness the knee-jerk potential of social media? Most probably also never knew that the issue of child soldiers is, sadly enough, not new at all. Especially in the endless African conflicts, it is almost commonplace. As for the title of “the worst” of the world’s criminals, competition is fierce. Again, unfortunately, the African continent is chockablock with violent warlords responsible for the slaughter and starvation of hundreds of thousands of inno-

cents. But remove them all and the place would still be left with immense problems of drought, disease, inter-tribal rivalries and political/military interference by a host of foreign nations. And meanwhile, of course, around the planet there are countless other worldclass thugs, some of them even posturing as legitimate leaders. Yet, thanks to Kony 2012, we can put a name and face to one. As the video states, he is made famous in order to be known, so that he can be stopped. He is literally the Facebook “poster boy” for evil. That he deserves such a role is not in dispute. Ultimately, the end game of the Kony 2012 campaign may possibly see the man brought to his death. I’m not squeamish about such a thing. However, this is a highly selective and thinly scripted morality play, acted out on a world stage before a highly impressionable and often ill-informed audience. What will be the next campaign to harness the powerful knee-jerk potential of social media – and who’s to say it will be for good? That’s assuming we all agree on “good.”

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

letters Bacteria don’t respect new hospital buildings

The recent deaths of patients at Burnaby General Hospital (BGH) has raised questions about what is going on in hospitals, and how transparent they are with information on rates of bacterial outbreaks. Bacterial outbreaks are an alarming event, but steps can be taken to prevent them or minimize the spread. Recent media releases about higher-than-normal numbers of patients dying from Clostridium difficile have led to attacks on how Fraser Health is running its hospitals, and what needs to change. Health Minister Michael de Jong responded to the attacks by claiming that aging, out-dated hospital infrastructure, and bathroom shortages are to blame. Bacterial outbreaks are not choosy about the year, make and model of the infra-

structure they spread themselves around in. The most simple and routine precaution of all – hand washing with soap and water – is not being sufficiently practised in most hospitals. Internal audits of B.C. hospitals have shown that full compliance with proper hand washing is extremely low. For example, the Vancouver Island Health Authority Annual Report found proper hand hygiene compliance to be at a mere 12 per cent for the 20102011 fiscal year. Why isn’t this being done all the time? C. difficile is a type of bacteria that produces toxins, in the form of spores, when it spreads. Scientific studies have shown that soap and water kills these toxic spores and stops their spread, although alcohol-based hand rubs do not. It may be that we are seeing too many doctors and

nurses relying on the conveniently placed hand-sanitizer dispensers as a quick and easy wash. Secondly, the proper use and prescription of antibiotics plays a major role in bacterial spread and outbreak control. If over-used, or used improperly, antibiotics can cause more harm than good. In response to de Jong’s claim of aging infrastructure and bathroom shortage, it may be just that we need to apply proper cleaning techniques in these areas, just as we do with hand washing. Problematic bacteria will infect any surface and spread in any area that isn’t cleaned and sterilized properly. Amanda LaBoucane Master of Public Health student, SFU

letters Anniversary of a tragedy

I wanted to remind you and the people of B.C. of a terrible tragedy that occurred March 13, 2010. Laurel Nadine Wilson and her yet unborn daughter, Chloe, and Laurel’s father Ralph Jewel, died innocently standing on a street corner waiting to go for a birthday lunch in Abbotsford. A licensed B.C driver did not stop for a red light and caused a major accident which claimed three generations of a family. Chloe, the unborn child, lived for 20 minutes of her short life while Laurel’s father suffered for six months before he finally gave up a valiant fight and lost his life as well. The man responsible for all this mayhem was given a $2,000 fine and banned from driving. Far from the results and charges that the families expected from a man who had already broken the law numerous times, and proven he would and has driven without a valid driver’s licence in the past. This man now walks free in society, thanks

FLAG

to a doctor who without any thought to the public safety, thought this man should have a “get out of jail card” because of a disorder they conveniently discovered shortly after the accident. Laurel’s family was from U.S. and they laugh at our inadequate justice system. I am proudly Canadian, but I am embarrassed at our Crown counsel and what they call jus-

tice. I can’t change the world nor do I intend to. I will leave that to the lawyers. But since I have one less daughter-in-law to hug, one less grandchild to spoil and one less friend to share life with, I might as well use the time to remind the people of B.C. we have a justice system that works for the criminals, a province that will give a driv-

er’s licence to anyone, and if you do get into trouble, get the name of this guy’s doctor. I am sure they can find something wrong with you and guess what, with a little cash and the same Crown counsel, yes, you can get away with murder in B.C. In memory of Laurel Wilson, Chloe Wilson, Ralph Jewel. You will not be forgotten. Thomas T. Preckel

A pair of local karaoke lounge crooners took to the national airwaves last weekend with a song routine that’s propelling them to another shot at prime time television. Steve and Celeste Presby’s performance of Cher and Peter Cetera’s “After All” wowed the judges during the March 11 episode of Canada’s Got Talent and secured a spot for the Abbotsford couple in the next round of the reality show competition. Although he’s been hosting karaoke parties for over a decade, Steve says he never thought he and Celeste were guaranteed any success on TV. “I hoped that we’d do well,” Steve says, “but I wasn’t sure. I saw some of the acts they had and I thought it was really tough competition.” The Presbys only

‘Hey, let’s just go do it and have some fun,’” Steve says. The pair showed up at the Westin Bayshore hotel in downtown Vancouver for auditions and before they knew it they were thrust in front of the cameras. The show’s producers

are keeping him tightlipped about when the second round takes place, but Steve hopes more people will attend their local shows in the meantime. The Presbys are known for engaging their audiences when they emcee karaoke parties and even provide second and third harmonies. The pair made sure to incorporate their interactive tendencies into the television appearance when they managed to get a theatre full of strangers to sway their hands in the air during their performance. Although Steve likens his stylings to Meat Loaf, he insists his wife falls into the Patsy Cline mould. “She’s got that very deep, throaty kind of sound that the people just love,” he says. “She’s got quite a range and quite a voice.” The couple will join eight other acts from the first part of the Vancouver auditions in the next round of Canada’s Got Talent.


Kindergarten outdoors

Karen MURPHY CORR Contributor

Next fall the kindergarten students at St. James and St. Ann’s School (SJSA) will be adding rubber boots, rain pants and a hooded raincoat to their required uniform as the Catholic school becomes the first Abbotsford elementary school to launch outdoor kindergarten. “Children spend more and more time in front of the TV and playing video games; they have lost their connection with nature. We know from health research and statistics that children of this generation are less physically active and less fit,” explains Terri Sask, principal at the parochial school that celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. She is excited for SJSA to become the first school in Abbotsford and the first Catholic school in the province to pilot an outdoor education program as part of the daily curriculum. “Being in the outdoors helps children

We are blessed in Abbotsford with the perfect environment for this type of program.” Outdoor or “forest” schools started in Germany nearly 50 years ago, spreading throughout Europe in primary and preschool settings. Now these “rain or shine” schools can be found in Australia, the UK, the U.S. and New Zealand. In B.C., children are heading outside daily

to learn in a North Vancouver preschool and from kindergarten to Grade 5 in the Maple Ridge school district. The Sooke school district will be offering a nature kindergarten for the 2012/13 school year as well. Research indicates the children of outdoor schools do well later in their school studies, and benefit from the experience in a variety of ways. The children will

spend a minimum of two hours each school day in the fresh air, supervised by school personnel and parent volunteers. Every element of the kindergarten curriculum is going to be explored outside against the backdrop of the Fraser Valley mountains, say organizers, as the children roam the school grounds, nearby Fishtrap Creek and the Discovery Trail and further afield.

No need to play it Coy Guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aggression leads Mouat past Kitsilano at B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Colleen Jones already owns a record six Scotties Tournament of Hearts national womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling titles. This week, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chasing her first Canadian seniors championship in Abbotsford.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It put everything in a different perspective. Suddenly, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not worried about the little things. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mellowed me on the curling ice a little bit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not as intense. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m probably just as intense.â&#x20AC;? Though Jones is competing at the senior level this week, the 52-year-old still has big goals on the non-age-restricted womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scene. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reunited with MaryAnne Arsenault and Kim Kelly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; part of the rink that won five Scotties titles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and added lead Jennifer Baxter to form a team to make a run at qualifying to represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Arsenault will skip, while Jones will play either second or third.

It sounds odd on the surface, but W.J. Mouat Hawks guard Jesse Coy is most effective when his game is seasoned with just a dash of selfishness. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s according to Mouat coach Rich Ralston, and to clarify, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the kind of selfishness where a player jacks up shots until his arm gets sore as his teammates grow increasingly frustrated. Rather, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a healthy aggression, and a desire to assert oneself at pivotal junctures of the game. In the first half of the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opener at the B.C. AAA boys basketball championship against the Kitsilano Blue Demons on Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a hint of selfishness in Coyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach, healthy or otherwise. He was overly deferential, and the shots he did take were of a passive nature â&#x20AC;&#x201C; settling for mid-range jump shots rather than driving to the hoop. In the second half, it was a different story. Midway through the third quarter, the 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;3â&#x20AC;? senior took over, scoring 11 consecutive Mouat points to boost a slim 41-40 advantage as high as nine points. Early in the fourth quarter, he picked up his fourth personal foul and had to go to the bench. In the interim, the Blue Demons clawed their way back to within 56-54 with three min-

Jones ready to rock Curling icon eyes Canadian seniors title, also covets Olympic berth Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Colleen Jones has won nearly everything there is to win in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling several times over. In light of that, it might be understandable if this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian Seniors Curling Championships at Abbotsford Recreation Centre, being the 50-and-over age-restricted competition that it is, failed to truly whet the appetite of the Nova Scotian curling legend. But Jones, a six-time Scotties Tournament of Hearts winner and a two-time world champion, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t switch off her trademark intensity even if she wanted to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really want to win this,â&#x20AC;? she

said Thursday, after touching with bacterial meningitis. Jones contracted the disease down at Abbotsford International Airport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won a Canadian â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which can be fatal 15 to 20 per mixed, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won a Canadian cent of the time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just before womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. To add this, it would be Christmas 2010, and her life may have been saved by awesome.â&#x20AC;? doctors who were Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resumĂŠ, able to quickly dias it stands already, agnose her condiis amazing.

Fontaine’s goals power Aeros past Heat Sports in Brief A pair of first-period power play goals by Justin Fontaine paced the Houston Aeros past the Abbotsford Heat 4-1 on Tuesday evening. Jeff Taffe and Jon DiSalvatore chipped in with second-period tallies as the Aeros knocked off the Heat for just the second time in seven games this season. Pierre-Luc LetourneauLeblond accounted for the Heat’s lone goal with a shorthanded marker at 1:25 of the third period, and Abbotsford goalie Leland Irving took the loss after allowing four goals on 27 shots. The defeat left the Heat (32-25-3-3) outside the AHL’s Western Conference playoff picture for the first time this season. They’re currently in

Tristan was confident he could take care of him (oneon-one) and he did.” M a c k e n z i e Thompson carried Mouat for much of the first half, and finished with 14 points.

But Coy came off the pine to score six points in a row, including a three-pointer with 1:31 left that was the dagger in a 66-55 Hawks victory. “As soon as it left my hands, I knew it was going in,” Coy said with a smile, reflecting on the last of his three treys on the night. “It felt amazing, shooting 0-for-3 in the first half and then going off in the fourth.” Coy racked up 23 points, along with seven rebounds and three steals, en route to player of the game honours. “We need that from him,” Ralston said of Coy. “We want him to be even more aggressive – he’s still a little bit passive. He’s so good in transition.” Mouat also got a terrific defensive performance from Grade 10 centre Tristan Etienne. The 6’9” youngster, just over two months removed from open heart surgery to repair a hole in his heart, dominated his match-up with Kits star Luka Zaharijevic.

Norton climbs podium

submitted photo

Paige Norton of Abbotsford turned in a series of terrific performances at the Special Olympics Canada Games last week, winning three medals.

Abbotsford speed skater Paige Norton captured a trio of medals at the Special Olympics Canada Games last week. Norton won a medal of every colour at the Games, which were held in St. Albert, Alta. She took gold in the 777-metre race, clocking a time of 1:49.82 to finish atop the F2 division. She added a silver medal in the 1000m and a bronze in the 333m, along with a fifth-place finish in the 500m. An Abbotsford curling squad also turned in a solid result at the Games. The team, which features Percy Walker, Mike Palitti, Ashley Bowling, Jeff James and Dale Wright, finished fourth in their division.

Hawks soar at team pentathlon A four-girl track and field team from W.J. Mouat Secondary earned a $500 bursary for their school after finishing third at the Telus Gran Forza Team Pentathlon held Saturday at the Richmond Oval. Behind second-place fin-

ishes from Hailey Gibson in the 50 metres (6.91 seconds) and Alex Siemens in the 800 meters (2:21.20), Mouat scored 3,765 points. Other points for the Hawks came from Frankie Jackman in the shot put and Jory Smallenburg in the long jump. The Mouat team com-

bined to place seventh in the 4x200 meter relay. In other action, Chantel Desch of Yale Secondary smashed the record in the senior girls’ standing long jump. Desch leaped 2.52m to easily surpass the mark of 2.28m set last year by Hailey Stewart.

This week, Jones will skip a rink featuring third Nancy Delahunt, second Marsha Sobey and lead Sally Saunders. More than five weeks have elapsed since they won the Nova Scotia senior women’s title, and they’re raring get back in game action. “We’ve been joking around – ‘Just six more nights, just five more nights,’” Jones said. The seniors championships features 12 teams on both the women’s and men’s sides, and the women’s draw is particularly star-studded. Cathy King of Alberta is another former Scotties champ – she won the Canadian women’s title in 1998, and went on to win bronze at the Worlds. Also in the field are defending Canadian senior champ Heidi Hanlon, an 11-time Scotties par-

ticipant from New Brunswick, and Newfoundland/Labrador’s Cathy Cunningham, a veteran of 14 Scotties, including a runner-up finish to Jones in 2003. The B.C. rink features skip Penny Shantz and third Debbie Jones-Walker, who won gold medals at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary when curling was a demonstration sport. “The field is amazing,” Jones noted. “It’s different from the Scotties, where you know what your opponents are like. Here, you’re not as sure. Nobody’s traveling across Canada to play each other regularly.”

IN LOVING MEMORY of DORIS IRENE VISCO Who passed peacefully Sunday morning March 11, 2012. She will be greatly missed by all her family. As time passes our thoughts of you will never fade. You brought to our lives memories that will go on forever.

Part 1 Angelo Rea B.Th., M.T.S.

Area Manager DIGNITY FUNERAL HOMES

POPESCUL NEUFELD, Irma Susan July 21, 1931 March 13, 2012 Irma Susan Neufeld (nee Penner) passed away peacefully at the age of 80 following a brief illness. She was surrounded by her loving family until the end. Irma was the beloved wife of Rudy Neufeld (deceased 2007). She was predeceased by her father John in 1978, mother Agatha

in 2001, brother Arthur in 1988, and brother George in 2003. Irma grew up in Rosemary, Alberta and after marrying Rudy started her family life on the farm in Seven Persons, Alberta. They moved to Abbotsford in 1982. Irma will be deeply missed by her children and grandchildren: Stewart (and Cathy in Windsor, ON), Cameron (and Marianne and their children Adam (and wife Erin) and Jordan in Edmonton), Cynthia (and Karl and their children Luke & Aaron in Maple Ridge) and Garth (and Liz and their children Alec & Graeme in Abbotsford). She also leaves to mourn her passing, her sisters, Frieda in Kelowna, Alice in Edmonton, and Eva in Sechelt, BC. Irma was devoted to her family. She loved reading, swimming, gardening, playing bridge and scrabble, listening to classical music and jazz, and taking in a play. She also volunteered at the MCC in Abbotsford where she combined her love of books and her concern for others in need. Irma loved the beauty of nature and its power to inspire. She was the first to jump into a freezing cold lake and shout that we should join her. She also taught us that a proper picnic must include hot strong coffee served in the best china cups one has! Irma Neufeld lived her life graciously and died peacefully. We commit her spirit to the Lord.

Norma Kathleen Passed away March 13, 2012 at the age of 67 years. Norma is survived by her loving husband of 32 years, Donald; mother-in-law Vera; three sisters-in-law, Linda, Catherine and Rosemary; one brother-inlaw Gordon; special cousin and closest friend Donna (Hugh) Savage; special friend Barb (Clayton) Copping; many other dear family members and friends. A celebration of her life and golf tournament will be held later this summer. Donations in her memory to Pancreatic Cancer Research would be greatly appreciated. Online condolences to the family may be made to: www.wiebeandjeskefh.com Wiebe & Jeske 604.859.5885

SHIPMAKER Gloria Luella Gloria went home to be with our Lord at her home on March 12, 2012. She was much loved and will be sadly missed by family and friends but we can rest assured knowing that she is now safe in the arms of her Heavenly Father. A celebration of her life will be held at Bethel Church on Sat. March 17 at 1:00 pm. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers Gloria would wish that you please give a donation to Bethel Church Sunday School.

You hear the phrase “You get what you pay for”. Adding Value is receiving service beyond expectations. It is going above “normal” service. We live in a globally competitive world where businesses are competing with each other. The difference is usually in the level of service provided. People have expectations. We want service that is provided with dignity and respect. There is a sense of fulfillment and pride when we receive service above our own expectations.

Service in the original Greek language is diakonia which means to minister to serve. Doulos is the word translated slave or servant. When you look at the meaning of these two words, we have the picture of someone who is devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interests. That means putting other people first and making sure that their interests are above our own interest. Serving others gives businesses a competitive edge. Saint Paul said “Treat others better than yourself.”

Kharak Singh 1939 ~ 2012 It is with heartbreaking grief that we regrettably announce the passing of Kharak Singh Jagpal. Kharak was born in Singapore on July 1, 1939 and passed away in his home in Abbotsford, BC, on March 12 2012. Kharak will forever be remembered as an intelligent and caring person; especially by his four children, wife, mother, sister and four grandchildren. A funeral service will be held on Sunday March 18, 2012 at Woodlawn Funeral Home at 1:30 pm. Paht will follow at Abbotsford Khalsa Divane Gurdwara on South Fraser Way.

There’s a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; There’s a dawn in every darkness bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity, In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.
