How to choose the Right Electrician if you have any of these 6 problems and you want them fixed today!

Unlike the plumbers I know, electricians rarely get emergency calls. Our equivalent of a flood in the basement is a fire in the attic . . . and you don’t call us for that. You call 911. So you’re probably not reading this because you’ve got an electrical emergency. Instead, you have an electrical problem like one of these... 1. “My good friend (or husband) tried to do it.” My apologies to the guys reading this, but it’s true. A big part of our business is finishing up the electrical projects you start... from outlets to ceiling fans. And that’s okay, although it would be easier and probably cheaper if you’d call us first. We have the tools, experience and know-how to do the job right, start to finish. Call us for proven professional electrical expertise.

2. “I need a ceiling fan or chandelier installed.” We install lighting fixtures, fans, outlets, dimmers and more. Our work is guaranteed to meet city codes, and we use only copper wiring (no aluminum). Want to know why we use only copper wiring? Call us.

3. “I have a breaker that doesn’t stay reset.” If your breaker keeps tripping, you don’t have the equivalent of a flooded basement, yet. But, you do have a potentially dangerous problem involving the electrical circuits in your home. Don’t ignore it. Call us!

4. “I’ve got an ugly internet or cable TV wiring stapled to my baseboards.” Let us do the job right. Snaking wire through walls is an art, a science, a skill... and our specialty. It’s also something few electricians, cable companies or internet providers like to do. But you’re in luck when you call us. We’re World Champions at snaking wire without knocking holes in your walls.

5. “Smells like something’s burning.” Overheated appliances and electrical circuits are a problem you don’t want to ignore. A call to us now could save you a call to 911 later.

We love getting this call. If you’ve got a switch that you’ve never been able to link to an outlet or circuit, call us to solve the mystery.

Emmanuel Mennonite Church pastor releases new book ‘Sacred Pauses’ about spiritual practices

The lead pastor at Emmanuel Mennonite Church in Abbotsford has written a new book about spiritual dis-

ciplines. Author April Yamasaki said “Sacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal

Renewal” describes spiritual practices that can refresh and delight people, and even include “having fun” or “making

music.” The book includes personal stories and scriptural allusions with references. Yamasaki said the

book is “for all those seeking rest and personal renewal, whether or not they are already familiar with spiritual prac-

tice, whether or not they think of themselves as spiritual, and whether or not they feel they are disciplined.”

Vikki HOPES

Improved students’ grades and school attendance. Flourishing confidence and social skills. What’s responsible? Horses. Youth worker Ruth Neveu, the aboriginal youth services worker at Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman Secondary, is the architect of the new Equestrian Program officially launched this week. The program, initially for aboriginal students, is a first for the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland. Eleven students from Grade 9 to 12 are currently enrolled in the independent-study course, and plans are underway to introduce a full equestrian curriculum this September. Neveu has been around horses her whole life – her dad taught the RCMP Musical Ride – and she wanted to share that experience with young people. About two years ago, she was helping out a barn in Abbotsford, and she thought it would be a great place to take some of the students from the school. She saw how the interaction with the animals helped to boost the kids’ confidence. Most of them had never been near horses before, and they developed interpersonal, teamwork and goal-setting skills as they learned how to care for and ride the animals. Neveu approached, among others, Perry Smith, district principal of aboriginal education, with the idea of creating a full semester program. Smith loved the idea. “We saw it as a great opportunity for aboriginal students to build healthy selfesteem … and build a sense of mastery – that they can be successful at something.” Some programming was offered last summer, and the program began in September. Students visit the barns twice a week, and they are matched with the horse of their selection.

They also have three classes a week at the school. Throughout the program, they learn such skills as horse and barn safety, grooming and saddling, lunging (exercising horses on

a long lead line) and riding. Instruction is provided by Neveu, along with three professional trainers at Cayley Wilson Performance Horses in south Abbotsford.
