Notice of Trans-Canada Highway Detour — Clearbrook Road Interchange

Westbound Detour – from Nov 15 up to Nov 24 Westbound traf¿c will exit at McCallum Road, travel along Marshall Road and rejoin the TCH at Clearbrook Road.

The goal of the City’s Snow and Ice Control Program is to maintain travel routes where there is snow and ice on roads and restore mobility for the traveling public. Our roads are classi¿ed: • ¿rst priority (high volume and strategic arterial and collector roads, and major access roads to hillside areas); • second priority (remaining arterial, hillside areas and collector routes); and • third priority (remaining roadways not identi¿ed as ¿rst and second priority).

Please direct inquiries to Tyler Bowie, Project Engineer, at 604-864-5514 or tbowie@abbotsford.ca.

MARSHALL RD.

There will be night-time closures of the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) at the Clearbrook Interchange between November 15 and up to November 26 to permit the demolition and removal of the old bridge over the highway. Traf¿c on the TCH will be detoured around the Clearbrook Road Interchange from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. according to the following tentative schedule:

Snow & Ice Control

Eastbound Detour – from as early as Nov 18 up to Nov 26

First priority roads are maintained until conditions are under control subject to worker/equipment availability and weather. Only then are resources redirected to second priority routes and subsequently third priority routes. The City of Abbotsford operates three anti-icing units (tanks containing sodium chloride solution) on four-lane roads and rural priority roads. The units are used to spray road surfaces before and during a storm. Anti-icing helps keep roads ice free and improves snow removal. The City does not remove snow and ice to bare pavement conditions. The public is encouraged to use caution, and wherever possible, park vehicles off the streets. Abandoned vehicles or vehicles obstructing roadways will be towed and towing costs will be the responsibility of the vehicle owners. Also, please do not plow snow from private properties onto the public roadways. For more information, please contact the Engineering Operations Division at 604.853.5485.

Eastbound traf¿c will exit at a temporary connection at Townline Road (2 km east of Mt. Lehman Road), travel along Marshall Road and enter the TCH at the Clearbrook Road on-ramp.

COUNCIL BRIEF

Remember to please slow down, watch for workers and follow the signs. More information on this project is available at www. ClearbrookInterchange.ca and the latest highway traf¿c conditions are at www.DriveBC.ca.

Police want six new officers

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford needs an additional six police officers to maintain the city’s drop in crime recorded this year, says the city’s deputy police chief in charge of administration. “The last thing we want to do ... is watch it (the crime rate) go back up again,” said Len Goerke. City council has approved in principle the hiring of six new officers and one civilian employee for the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) in its 2011 operating budget. This represents two per cent of the 3.5 per cent tax increase already projected for local residents, with approximately $42 million allotted for police operations. The tax increase is expected to hit 4.5 per cent after council considers a one per cent increase to its capital budget this Monday. The city is aiming to give final budget approval before Christmas. Goerke said the six officers are proposed in the following areas: one each in the traffic and major crime units, and four in the patrol division (one for each shift). He said the positions

Abbotsford Police maintain that they have taken a bite out of crime, and need six new police officers to avoid losing those gains. will fill gaps left in the last couple of years when officers were moved to areas identified as priorities by the APD. Goerke said one detective was moved from major crime to focus solely on serious domestic violence cases in order to provide better follow-up with victims and a higher conviction rate. Two detectives were dedicated to the issue of computer crime, including child pornography cases.

Thirteen officers were transferred to the gang suppression unit, which formed in April in response to the number of gang-related homicides and other violent crimes in Abbotsford. But while the city recorded drops in almost all crime categories from 2008 to 2009 and a 20 per cent reduction overall in criminal offences, there have been areas where improvement is needed, Goerke said. One of these is in the

traffic unit, which has recorded 13 vehicle-related fatalities so far this year. In all of 2009, there were six. He said hiring another officer for the traffic division will increase enforcement and reduce offences. “We believe, as an organization, that deterrents work. People will drive more safely if they are concerned that they will get a ticket.” Goerke said the four officers for the patrol division will increase the “discretionary” time that police have when they’re not responding to calls. “When they have that time to get out of the car and walk through a park or visit a bar or drive around an industrial area looking for suspicious cars, they’re more likely to prevent crime and detect it quickly and apprehend the people who are responsible.” The new positions are expected to be filled late in 2011 or early 2012, Goerke said. Also as part of the police budget, a civilian human resources clerk will be hired, and a new radio system – the digital E-Comm – will replace the current analog system. E-Comm is expected to be fully operational by July, Goerke said.

Taxpayers feel the Heat

NewsBytes

Team gets nearly half a million dollars to cover shortfall Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford’s new AHL hockey team will cost taxpayers $450,637 for the last season. Under a supply fee a g reement made public in March, the city guaranteed the Abbotsford Heat a break-even budget, up to a maximum amount of $5.7 million annually for 10 years. In its inaugural year, the Heat’s regular season revenue was $5,054,783. A playoff run into the second round ear ned the squad an additional $194,580 for a total revenue of $5,249,363, almost half a million dollars short. “Why are we paying that? Because we are building a business,” explained city manager Frank Pizzuto. According to a city report, the deficit is a result of lower than expected commercial sponsorship, and attendance short of what was predicted. “Those were the biggest factors,” confirmed Pizzuto. The $450,000 price tag

The Abbotsford Heat will receive more than $450,000 from taypayers for its inaugural 2009 season, as part of a break-even budget agreement with the City of Abbotsford. is considerably higher than the $275,000 figure projected in March. At that time, hopes were high that a long play-

off run would decrease the amount the city had to pay. However, that didn’t occur.

“Both commercial and attendance projections (for the remainder of the season) were too high. We also

thought attendance at playoff games would be higher,” Pizzuto acknowledged. Hosting a playoff series also adds to the costs, as well as generating revenue. Commercial income includes board advertising, on-ice and scoreboard ads, and other business sales. Pizzuto said many companies plan their advertising a year in advance so money may not have been available, considering the sudden appearance of the team. Little time was available between the announcement of the new team in April of 2009 and the start of its first season in September. Commercial sales have been higher so far this season, but attendance figures are down in the short term. The Heat are drawing an average of 2,839 fans per game through their first 10 home games this season. That’s 28th out of 30 teams in the AHL. Continued on A6

EXTREME WEATHER PLAN With cold weather in the forecast, the extreme weather plan goes into effect for Abbotsford’s homeless, creating an additional 110 shelter spaces. The province provides funding for the spaces, and volunteers work to ensure the safety of people who are living outdoors. There are 20 spaces in each of the Sevenoaks Alliance Church, Grace Church, Emmanuel Mennonite, the William Booth Shelter, and the Ag Rec Legacy Gallery, plus 10 spaces at the Cyrus Centre. Abbotsford has 20 year-round shelter beds.

SCHOOL GROUNDBREAKING A ground-breaking ceremony for the renovation and expansion of Abbotsford Collegiate takes place Monday afternoon. Work has been underway since the summer on parts of the property to prepare it for construction. The groundbreaking signifies the start of construction on the new school, neighbourhood learning centre and library. Those attending include MLA John van Dongen, Mayor George Peary and Cindy Schafer, chair of the Abbotsford board of education. The event is not open to the public.

ONE PER CENT CAPITAL TAX HIKE City staff are asking for a one per cent tax hike for the capital budget. Council will meet on Monday at 2 p.m. to debate the request and give it approval in principle. If council agrees, that will bring the total tax hike for 2011 to 4.5 per cent. Council previously gave approval in principle for a 3.5 per cent increase to the operating budget.

Bacon case proceeds to Supreme Court

B.C. Court of Appeal decision to be reviewed Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

WE’VE MOVED!

The Supreme Court of Canada has granted an oral hearing to consider overturning a B.C. Court of Appeal decision from March that ordered

a new trial on drug and weapons charges against Jonathan Bacon of Abbotsford and two others. Approval for the hearing was granted today (Thursday), but a date has not yet been set for the matter.

The “leave for appeal” application was filed to oppose the new trial for Bacon, Godwin Cheng and Rayleene Burton. At their first trial in June 2008 in Abbotsford provincial court, Judge Donald Gardner dismissed the charges. He ruled that police searches of the trio’s vehicles and a Winfield Drive home

Their next two games at the AESC are against the Manitoba Moose (Nov. 26-27), the Vancouver Canucks’ farm team. It’s expected those will be near-sellouts, bringing the attendance average up to about 3,600, and 23rd place in the league. However, that figure is still below last season’s mark as the team averaged 3,897 per game. Pizzuto looks at the 10-year deal and sees potential. “We are very confident that this will be successful.” While the agreement guarantees the team a break-even budget, it also includes revenuesharing with the city. If the team makes a profit, the first $200,000 goes to the city as a rental fee for the arena. Any profit after that is divided 60/40 between

a one-week period in August 2005 involving the transfer of packages between vehicles and the townhouse occupied by Bacon and Burton. Police also said they observed Bacon and Cheng transferring packages between vehicles and driving to a meeting point on Aug. 4. Among the items allegedly found in Cheng’s vehicle were

marijuana, meth and ecstasy pills, cocaine, $2,600 cash and cellphones. Shortly after, Burton was stopped in her vehicle and police seized $88,000, the court documents indicate. A subsequent search of the Winfield Drive townhouse turned up marijuana, cash, four firearms, a bulletproof vest and a police uniform.

Pizzuto said figures were submitted months ago, but ongoing discussions occurred. “There were some disagreements on what constituted revenues and what didn’t.” Now that the numbers are public, Pizzuto maintains the city has to move forward. A team was needed for the arena to have any chance of making a profit, he said. In its first full year of use, the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre ran an operating deficit of $2.6 million. A successful hockey team would help lower that cost. Pizzuto pointed out that the arena creates spin-off benefits, such as 300 full- and parttime jobs.

BISHOP MICHAEL INGHAM To be read and distributed in all Churches of the Diocese of New Westminster, November 21st, 2010 www.vancouver.anglican.ca www.holidayservices.ca

When our Diocesan Synod voted for the third time in 2002 to bless committed, faithful samesex relationships we made it clear that such permission was optional and not mandatory. No one has ever been required to act against their conscience in this matter. Our Diocese welcomes people of differing convictions. My desire has always been that we should respect one another and continue to serve the mission of God together. The matter brought before the Court was not about sexuality nor the truth of the Gospel. Rather, litigants sought to take possession of diocesan buildings and assets after they had removed themselves from the Anglican Church of Canada. The Court of Appeal refused this request, as did the B.C. Supreme Court in 2009. In doing so, both Courts have upheld the structures and governance of historic Anglicanism. Both have recognized that decisions in the Canadian Church have been

reached in accordance with our own procedures and customs, and that the civil courts should not be used to determine church doctrine. Churches are sacred places. They hold precious memories. The lives of our parents and children are celebrated and remembered here. They are spaces where our deep human longing is met by the eternal Gospel of Jesus Christ. No one should have to choose between their faith and their church. Today I am issuing a sincere appeal to members of those congregations whose leaders have drawn them into this action to remain in communion with Canadian Anglicans, and to stay in the churches where they worship. I will work with them in seeking new clergy to fill the positions of those who have left the Anglican Church of Canada. This will be a mutual and collaborative process, as all such appointments in the Diocese are. Let us all remember the first Christian principles – love of God and love of our neighbour. Our divided world needs a united church. I invite you all to join with me in the work of healing and reconciliation, mutual forgiveness and forbearance, so that we may move forward together in humility with God’s grace.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Business tax freeze

Was it worth $450,000 to have an AHL team in Abbotsford last season?

The idea that the chamber has put forward is similar in scope to what the city is already doing. They have created an economic opportunity to draw new business and development here. They have made it both easy and affordable to build and develop new properties. This creates employment for people that live here, allowing them to continue to pay for their homes. It is not a question of business versus everybody else. It’s a question of developing more business, and creating a bigger tax base to draw from.

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Do you approve of the city’s plan to move to bi-monthly water bills?

Doris Woodman-McMill I don’t think it’s about freezing one sector or another, I think it’s about raising taxes period. Services to much if not all parts of the entire tax base has increased but the services themselves have not improved or increased. If it’s playing catch-up, then do it in amounts that parallel the COLA. In many cases it may have decreased. If covering salary increases of city workers, then do the right thing and freeze that part of the budget.

YOU RESPONDED:

YES: 14% NO: 86%

Gritty optics for year one of new arena Andrew

Holota

On Point Nearly half a million dollars. That’s how much me and thee will be paying for the privilege of having the Heat call Abbotsford home. I never was keen on the concept of my tax dollars subsidizing a private hockey club, in a civic facility (for which we’re also paying dearly). I don’t like it any better now, and I suspect there are a good number of people out there who feel likewise. The Heat owners cut quite a deal to move the AHL team here. The city guarantees the club $5.7 million in annual revenue. If it falls short, taxpayers pick up the difference. At the end of the first year, the tab is $450,637. That’s about $175,000 more than what was projected back in March. And it took about five months longer than initially promised to get that figure out.

Apparently, city hall and the Heat were wrangling over the figures. Attendance was shy of initial projections, but according to owner Lane Sweeting, the Heat were in the ballpark to break even on budgeted ticket sales. Ultimately, the team’s corporate revenue – such as advertising income – was much lower than expected. So far this fall, attendance is below last year’s marks, but corporate sales are better. Be patient, say team and city managers. This is a work in progress – an exercise in business building. Indeed. And on the positive side, if you consider the Heat generated $5.3 million of its overall $5.7M budget in the first year, that’s a pretty decent start for any new major business, particularly considering the recent economic climate. By comparison, the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre didn’t fare nearly as well. Year one of the new facility had a few bright points like the Christian concert opener, Reba, and Alan Jackson. However, overall, the centre’s performance as a revenue generator was ane-

mic, resulting in a $2.6 million operating deficit – covered by taxpayers. Originally budgeted to have 80 nonhockey events annually, the AESC had a small fraction of that, with virtually none in the past four months. The economic meltdown last year

It’s gritty political optics for what you could alternately call an investment in the future – or a long-shot gamble. definitely hurt the entertainment business. Promoters across the continent cancelled tours, and/or downscaled schedules. No one could have seen that coming. It also didn’t help that the Olympics was in B.C., owning the world stage. However, it can’t be comfortable in the corporate offices of Global Spectrum, the company which is paid

$500,000 a year to run the arena for the City of Abbotsford. More than half of the Heat’s revenues – such as corporate sales – are also Global’s responsibility, and that’s the key factor in the Heat budget shortfall. There is a performance clause in the city’s contract with Global, and I suspect the city is ready to throw the switch next year if the numbers don’t get a whole lot better. As it sits, taxpayers are paying about $4 million per year in debt interest and amortization costs on the $85-million loan for Plan A facilities, dominated by the AESC. Then there’s $2-million-plus in arena red ink, and $450,000 in Heat subsidy. Add Global’s bill of half a million, and you have a public commitment of more than $7 million in year one of this mighty undertaking. It’s pretty gritty political optics for what you could alternately call an investment in the future – or a longshot gamble. Either way, the reality is that we can’t fold our cards and leave the table.

Bringing lawsuit against church not a moral issue

There has been a lot of indignant ignorance lately about a local church being sued after there occurred on its premises an accident that led to multiple and expensive injuries. The church is simply being sued in order to recover costs that it created for the public by its negligence. We taxpayers have to pay those medical costs. The key legal concept here is simple negligence. There is no suggestion of “moral turpitude” by the church. Negligence requires no turpitude at all. Likewise there is no suggestion of “illegal activity.” The relevant legislation is British Columbia’s Health Care Cost Recovery Act. It is Bill 22-2008, passed by our democratically elected pro-

vincial government. The HCCRA is valid law from our political masters. Every lawyer practising personal injury law knows it. St. Paul orders us to respect our masters. Our provincial government is our democratic masters. Some of the people griping about a church being sued likely voted Liberal. Jesus says, “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” Health care costs recovered from a church or anyone else certainly are Caesar’s. Other provinces have legislation like the HCCRA. So do the Americans. This law is the basis of the multimillion dollar lawsuits against cigarette companies for selling products that lead to illnesses for which the government must

Bus system needs improving Buses in Abbotsford don’t run as often as they should. Some of them run only every hour, and some just stop running at 6 p.m. Like the one to Huntingdon – it stops after 6 p.m. I get it – not enough people take it after a certain time, so why continue that bus route? Well, maybe because some people are at work during that time, and won’t be off until later. Why can’t we have more than one or two buses running back and forth on their routes? If we did, we would only have to wait 15-20 minutes as opposed to a half hour to an hour. Why do buses stop running at 9 or 10 p.m.? Why not midnight, or 1 a.m.? Some people work until those times, and they are screwed because the bus system we have is terrible. So, people are stuck walking, biking, taking taxis or whatever they have to do just to get home. Sundays, for some reason, bus runs stop extra early, just for the inconvenience of others. Why Sunday? Why does the day matter? I’ve heard many complaints about the Abbotsford transit, but I doubt many people actually get up and say something about it. Brandon Toews

rettes leads to health care costs, and so does having a defective floor in a church.

In less time than it takes a Christian to gripe, anyone can research the masses of

This holiday season Operation Red Nose returns to the Abbotsford and Mission communities for its 15th consecutive year. To commemorate this important moment and kick off the 2010 ORN season, we’re having a

PA R T Y F O R R U D Y - our loveable program mascot … and we want you to come! Come on out and show your support for Operation Red Nose and community safety. Bring your family and friends – there’ll be lots of cake, photo ops with Rudy, inspiring messages from community leaders and opportunities to meet the many wonderful volunteers who make Operation Red Nose happen year after year.

“This is where business wants to be.” That’s the message Mayor George Peary delivered to the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce membership Thursday afternoon. In a “year in review” style speech at the monthly luncheon, Peary t o u c h e d on topics including the Olympics, crime and city developPEARY ment. “It’s wonderful to have developers come into my office saying how impressed they are with our team,” he said. Citing success stories, he pointed to companies like Golden Valley Foods, which is expanding its egg grading facility, and Polygon Homes, which has begun the first phase of what will eventually be 500 townhome units in the Blueridge and Townline road areas. Building in Abbotsford

is ahead of last year’s pace and once the approximately $150-million High Street shopping centre project (on Mt. Lehman Road across from the Fraser Valley Auto Mall) is processed, Abbotsford could “double last year’s numbers.” “People want to invest their dollars here,” said Peary. Infrastructure i m p r ove m e n t s to both the Clearbrook and McCallum Interchanges and airport improvements will also help attract business interest. “We basically, folks, have a brand new airport and a new terminal built from the inside out,” said Peary. He also addressed the issue of crime, complimenting the police on an outstanding job. He pointed to Operation Lodestar – a program that raises awareness among parents and youth about the danger of gang life – as a step

forward for the community. “We have had fewer than half the number of murders this year than we did last. “I’m not proud to be the mayor of the murder capital of Canada,’ he said, calling the moniker unfair considering the improvements that have occurred. Overall, Peary said life in Abbotsford is good and the future bright. And he said he has the data to prove it. According to an Ipsos Reid poll conducted for the city earlier George Peary this year, 95 per cent of respondents said they enjoy the quality of life in Abbotsford. “We often hear from the other five per cent. “One person speaking makes more noise than 1,000 who are quiet,” said Peary, who may not agree with his critics, but said he respects their right to speak out.

We basically, folks, have a brand new airport and a new terminal built from the inside out

Dunach families soldier on, preparing for school closure Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Parents of Dunach Elementary received a letter this week from the Abbotsford school district, asking them to select their top three choices for schools they would like their children to attend next September. The letter follows the decision by the board of education on Monday night to permanently close the school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; located at the corner of Downes and Mt. Lehman roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on June 30, 2011. Angie Appenheimer, who has two sons attending Dunach, said parents and students are still reeling from the decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This closure represents a tremendous loss. We are all in the process of grieving,â&#x20AC;? she said. Appenheimer said, ideally, Dunach fami-

lies would like to remain together, but they do not know if that is a possibility. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parents Advisory Council (PAC) will discuss the issue in more detail at its meeting on Monday night. Kevin Godden, deputy superintendent for the school district, will

be in attendance to answer questions. Parents have been told that district staff will work with them over the next few months in making the transition to new schools. M e a n w h i l e , Appenheimer said the PAC meeting will also look at â&#x20AC;&#x153;plan-

Campbell vows to stay until February

bl

Expelling a dissident cabinet minister and reversing his last major tax policy move have not swayed Premier Gordon Campbell’s determination to stay in the top job until his successor is chosen. At its Wednesday meeting, the B.C. Liberal cabinet demoted Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett from energy minister to backbencher, reversed a 15 per cent personal income tax cut that was to begin Jan. 1, and scheduled a standpat throne speech and budget for Feb. 14 and 15. Bennett was fired from cabinet after publicly demanding that Campbell leave before the new B.C. Liberal leader is chosen on Feb. 26. In an interview, Campbell said this week’s turmoil over his departure hasn’t changed his view that appointing an interim leader is “not normal,” and having “three premiers in three months” isn’t the way to ensure a smooth transition. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said the decision to “suspend” the tax cut shows that it was an act of desperation by a party that has lost credibility over its surprise introduction of the harmonized sales tax.

Hunger Count: Food bank use climbs amid slow recovery Jeff NAGEL Black Press

More B.C. residents are turning to local food banks to help make ends meet. Nearly 95,000 people in the province used food banks in March, up five per cent from a year earlier, the national Hunger Count survey by Food Banks Canada shows. Many B.C. food banks this year reported having to take unusual steps to meet the growing demand – such as cutting their hamper size, contacting other food banks for help or making special public appeals for donations. “Very few have said they’ve turned people away, or closed early or not opened,” said Surrey Food Bank executive director Marilyn Herrmann,

who also is a director on Food Banks B.C. “We’re all trying very hard to keep those things from happening.” Also notable, she said, is an increase in the number of twoparent families coming for food, in contrast with the stereotype of a single parent struggling to feed the kids. The annual Hunger Count found 11 per cent of B.C. recipients are working and earning a paycheque but still need support. Forty-four per cent are on social assistance. Another 6.2 per cent of those assisted in B.C. were seniors and 19.5 per cent were aboriginal. Children make up 30 per cent of those who benefit. Herrmann said the slow economic recovery is being felt in

the Lower Mainland, but the impact is worst in Interior areas such as Revelstoke, Salmon Arm and 100 Mile House. “The rural food banks are being hit so, so hard,” she said. “Many industries and businesses are shutting down and many of their donors are now becoming clients of the food banks.” Even affluent areas are experiencing higher demand in part because of the higher cost of housing. Nationally, 867,000 people used food banks in March, a nine per cent increase from a year earlier. Food Banks Canada wants Ottawa to embark on a poverty prevention and reduction strategy and put more money into affordable housing, child care and the child tax benefit.

Local demand always rising The Abbotsford Community then they have bills, so the first Services Food Bank has been thing to go is food.” steadily increasing its service Also, he said the food bank levels since 2000. has added programs over the It is one of the province’s years – like the recent addition oldest, having been established of donated dental services – which have brought in in 1983, and is now the more clients. fourth largest in B.C. “We try to keep creatwith 7,000 clients per ing programs that meet month. the needs of people,” Director Dave Murray said Murray. started at the food bank Because of the steady in 2000, and at that time growth over a decade, it served 800 clients per Abbotsford has not month.

Christmas at the Clarke selling fast Mission’s 11th annual Christmas at the Clarke benefit concert is still almost a month away, scheduled for 7 p.m. on Dec. 15, but tickets are already selling fast. “In terms of great entertainment for the entire family, it just doesn’t get better than this,” says John Agnew, the benefit’s founder and producer. “It provides people with a great night of inexpensive entertainment and just as importantly, it raises money, over $120,000 in the past 10 shows, for two worthwhile community organizations: the Christmas Bureau and the shelters operated by the Women’s Resource Society.” Beginning at 7 p.m. the audience will be entertained by the Gospel Connection, Familia, The Valley Voices and by the Joy Vox Community Choir. Coming back this year to close the show is Rob Hess. One of the highlights of the evening is a silent auction. Businesses have donated hundreds of items for bidders. Tickets are $15, and are available in Mission at Rex Cox Men’s Wear, Murdoch’s Book Shoppe, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs and SaveOn-Foods. They are at the House Of James in Abbotsford. People are also asked to bring items for the food bank.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Saturday, November 20, 2010

After battling concussions, Nathan Lieuwen is finally fulfilling his potential Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

P UNTIL this fall, Nathan Lieuwen’s Western Hockey League career had been largely defined by misfortune. But after weathering three concussionmarred campaigns, the Abbotsford-born goalie is finally back to fitness. While that’s been a welcome turn of events for the Kootenay Ice keeper, it’s been bad news for WHL shooters. Lieuwen has been lights-out this season – his three shutouts are tied for the league lead, his 2.25 goals against average is third-best, and he owns a flashy 11-2-0-1 record. The success is especially sweet in light of the adversity Lieuwen’s walked through in his junior hockey career. Simply being able to hit the ice with his team is something the 19-year-old goalie isn’t about to take for granted. “Coming into the league when I was 16, I had big dreams, big plans, and things didn’t unfold the way I thought they would,” he acknowledged during a phone interview this week. “But I think it’s taught me a lot of patience, and to take hold of the opportunities I get.” Lieuwen’s pedigree as a hockey prospect is purely blue-chip. He was the first goalie picked in the 2006 WHL bantam draft (16th overall by Kootenay) after backstopping the Abbotsford Hawks to the first Western Canadian bantam AAA title in the history of the local minor hockey association. He’s also represented Canada internationally – in the summer of 2008, he was the goaltender of record as Team Canada won gold at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka under-18 World Championship in the Czech Republic. His teammates included such future NHLers as Taylor Hall (Edmonton Oilers), Evander Kane (Atlanta Thrashers) and Matt Duchene (Colorado Avalanche). But that tournament was merely a short reprieve between concussions for Lieuwen. His first one came in September of 2007, when he was the passenger in a single-vehicle rollover. Lieuwen was knocked out of the Kootenay lineup once again in January 2009, after a Calgary Hitmen forward ran him over and he hit

Abbotsford’s Nathan Lieuwen is establishing himself as one of the WHL’s top goaltenders. He leads the league with three shutouts this season. his head on the goalpost. He went from being the WHL’s top-rated draft-eligible goalie in November of 2008, to going undrafted due to health concerns just seven months later. The last concussion turned out to be a gift that kept on giving – the after-effects lasted into the 2009-10 season. But Lieuwen kept working hard all the way along. When he arrived in Cranbrook as a 16-year-old rookie, he was a beanpole at 6’5”, 160 pounds. These days, he’s in the 195 range, adding an element of strength to his trademark size and athleticism.

The last couple seasons in Kootenay, Lieuwen split time with veteran Todd Mathews. This season, he’s the unquestioned starter on one of the top teams in junior hockey – the Ice lead the WHL’s Central Division and are No. 8 in the Canadian Hockey League rankings. “I get to come to the rink knowing I’m going to play,” he said. “All I need to do is put together one solid year to get noticed. In the past I’ve been scouted and looked at a bit, so hopefully I’m still on the radar. If I can put in one good year, I’m sure there’ll be some

(pro) opportunities somewhere.” Speaking with Lieuwen, the excitement in his voice is evident. “It hasn’t been ideal, but I’m happy I was able to go through those three years that were really hard,” he said. “The growth I made going through something that difficult makes this year all that much better. And it makes me that much better of a person going forward.” Lieuwen is one of 12 Abbotsford natives currently playing in the WHL. For more on those players, visit abbynews.com.

Boys from the baseball academy at Yale Secondary turned heads at an elite prospects event in Arizona last month. The Arizona Fall Invitational, held in Peoria, Ariz., brought together 34 top teams from across the continent for a tournament that was heavily scouted by NCAA and Major League Baseball personnel. The Yale boys won just one of their three games, but both losses came by narrow 6-5 margins. Considering the calibre of the competition, the local crew came home quite pleased with the performance. “The kids exceeded expectations,” said Billy Wilms, program director for Yale’s sport academies. “There was some phenomenal talent at that tournament.” Yale’s pitchers, in particular, excelled south of the border. Matt Forsythe threw 111 pitches in a 2-1 victory in Yale’s opener, and Tyler Dobos racked up 10 strikeouts in the second game. “It was definitely a good experience for us,” said Yale’s Brand Molnar.

OBITUARIES LETKEMAN

LeCLAIR, Erika Margaret (Willms) 1941-2010 Erika Willms LeClair was born in Abbotsford, BC on 1 March 1941 to Henry and Irma Willms, the third child in a family of eight. She grew up on her parents’ dairy farm on Judson Lake, surrounded by a large and loving extended family. Together with her family Erika attended South Abbotsford MB Church, where as a teenager she was baptized and became a member. In 1960 Erika graduated from MEI. She studied Home Economics at UBC. Erika married Cecil LeClair, and they moved to Edmonton, where they had two children-a daughter and a son-who gave Erika much joy. In the early 1990s, Erika moved back to Abbotsford. She lived for several years in her grandparents’ former home on Huntingdon Road. Later she acquired a suite in the Garden Park Tower, where she lived until shortly before her death. Erika loved to cook and bake, and to share her creative gifts with family and friends. In recent years she happily instigated and hosted several family gatherings. On 5 November, after a two-year battle with cancer, Erika left her much-loved home, and moved into the hospice in Mission, BC. On Sunday, 14 November 2010, while surrounded by her children and other family members, Erika passed quietly into the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. Erika was predeceased by her parents, Irma Rempel Willms (2003) and Henry Willms (2007), and her husband, Cecil LeClair (2006). Erika leaves to mourn her two beloved children, daughter Erika (Darren) Janzen, son Cecil (Galena) LeClair, four grandchildren, five brothers: Walter (Anne), Rudy (Christine), John (Mandy), Victor (Dorothy), Rick (Amy) and two sisters: Selma (Alan) Turner and Marie Anne (Jake) Dick, together with many nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts and cousins. At Erika’s request, there will be no formal service. Family and close friends of Erika will share a memorial tea on Sunday, 21 November 2010. The Willms and LeClair families are grateful to the doctors, nurses and staff at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and the Christine Morrison Hospice for the friendly and attentive care that Erika received during her illness and her last days among us.

Helen passed into the presence of her Lord on November 16, 2010 at the age of 93 years. She was predeceased by her husband Abraham in 1988, son Norman in 2006, son-in-law Gordon Knight in 2009 and by 11 siblings. She is survived by her loving family; children Doreen (John) Bell, Trudy Knight, Alverna (Sam) Stobbe, Deloris (Jan) Kamp; daughterin-law Maureen Letkeman, 13 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, 2 sisters Hilda Todd and Esther Molitar; 2 brothers Ed Reimer and Walter Reimer. A memorial service will be held on Monday, November 22nd at 1:00 p.m. in Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Rd. Abbotsford. Woodlawn Funeral Home (604) 853-2643

Integrity and respect are our core values when making funeral arrangements. Funeral arrangements are very personal. People can choose from a simple funeral to a personalized funeral service. In the Indo-Canadian community it is important that tradition is followed within our culture. Planning a funeral ceremony takes dedication and effort to provide a seamless experience. Honouring a life is a privilege and we take great pride in providing that service to our families.

When arranging a funeral within our community the service needs to be co-ordinated with the family, Sikh Temple and Priest, funeral home and crematorium. Vital statistics information of the deceased will be required for the registration of death. The family physician provides the medical certificate of death which in turn helps us produce the death certificate. Planning a meaningful service is what we do. All cultural customs and traditions will be honoured. We will take care of all the details. When a family places their loved one in our care we will turn a difficult process into a seamless experience. Dignity Memorial provides value to their families. We will make sure that every funeral we arrange is a unique tribute to a unique life that was lived.

Entertainer brings music and stand-up

Musical comedian/satirist Todd Butler will bring his quick wit and impressive guitar skills to Tradex this month for the entertainment portion of the Business Excellence Awards. Butler is a self-described Weird Al Yankovic meets This Hour Has 22 Minutes hybrid who likes to riff on local and national politics as well as Canadian trivia in general. “I poke fun at people in the news, like Tiger Woods and Conrad Black, that kind of stuff,” he said. Butler’s latest number, which he’s currently working on from his home in Courtenay, B.C., is a ribbing of our recently resigned premier, called What if Gord Was One of Us? Despite the heavy slant toward political humour in his routine, Butler said it’s not a partisan view; everyone’s made fun of equally. It’s good, clean fun though. Doing corporate entertainment is one of Butler’s favourite kinds

of shows because he gets to be funny without lowering the bar for an inebriated club audience. “I found that I had enough material that was funny and clean, which is basically what they want,” he said. “With comedians, you never know what you’re getting, especially with stand-up, and the last thing 300 bankers and their wives or husbands want to hear is somebody swearing and doing off-colour jokes.” Being only one in a handful of professional comedians in the corporate circuit, Butler said he gets a lot of gigs, such as the B.C. Municipalities Convention two years ago, where he won over the crowd. In addition to his jokes, Butler appeals to most audiences with his impressive finger-picking and flat-picking numbers which he’s been perfecting as a professional guitarist and teacher for the past 40 years. He can even play Dueling Banjos behind his head.

Getting into the comedy side of performing wasn’t a big leap for the guy who has always seen the world from a skewed perspective. Starting in high school, he played in bands seven nights a week, and found that if he changed the words to well-known songs, he’d get a laugh… and occasionally threatened. “Bikers don’t like it too much when you mess with Born to Be Wild,” he said with a laugh. Some CBC radio listeners may remember Butler from his days as a host and performer in Madly Off In All Directions, but these days he’s back to his roots, doing his comedy for live audiences. “I try to pick songs that everybody knows… It tends to be more on the country and folk side, but I also parody AC/DC songs, and that kind of stuff. The whole show is little snippets that all kind of tie together. It’s very much like standup with a guitar.” To find out more about Todd Butler visit www.toddbutler.com.

Todd Butler will bring his unique brand of musical humour to Tradex for the Business Excellence Awards.

EXCELLENCE

‘One of the best nights I can remember’ It was Oscar night last year at this time for Toews Sewing and Pianos. The long-standing local company was among the winners at the 14th Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards, taking the Established Business of the Year award, sponsored by the Abbotsford News. The firm’s Calvin Toews called it “exciting” and likened the experience to a Hollywood triumph. “It’s like winning an Academy Award, that’s how cool it was over there,” Toews said of the 2009 event at Tracex. “It was one of the best nights I can remember.” He said the award has significantly enhanced the profile of the Toews business, a family operation with a staff of five, which was already something of an institution in the Fraser Valley. After setting up shop in Chilliwack in November 1949, the business moved to Abbotsford five years later and has now been in the

community for 56 years. Throughout its history, the Toews shop has offered sales and repair services for sewing machines and pianos. By continuing to specialize in the finer points of both fields, Toews said his shop is able to offer a degree of expertise sometimes lacking in an era of big-box retailers and disposable products – a quality he believes was key to winning last year’s award. “Focusing in on a thing and sticking with it, I think that’s what it’s all about,” Toews said. “There are about 8,800 parts in a piano, which is something not everyone knows about.” The trophy is on prominent display at the Toews shop at 2518A Clearbrook Road. While there’s no hard evidence how much the award may have improved business, Toews suspects it probably has. “I think it makes people feel more confident about (making a purchase),” he said.

Chocolatier ‘Silly Bonka’ nominated

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

Phil Bonk with a tray of his sweet wares from J-B’s Candy Shoppe.

Phil Bonk had a good life with a wife, three kids and a job as an accountant, but there was one thing he couldn’t have – candy. A diabetic his whole life, Bonk couldn’t have sugar, though he’s always had a sweet tooth. But then five years ago he got the idea to give up bean counting and learn every aspect of making gum drops and candy apples in his own business. “I’ve always loved candy because I couldn’t have it,” he said. “Part of the thing was to actually make a good candy that diabetics would like.” So naturally his three kids, ages nine, 12 and 14, were delighted when their dad opened J-B’s Candy Shoppe on Pauline Street. They got to drop in after school to see how business was going and test the product. Bonk learned how to make chocolate, including the sugar-free variety, and also caramel, fudge, and candy of all kinds. Though some of his sweets are imported, the candy man makes about 75 per cent of everything he sells. Jelly beans, taffy, suckers, truffles, caramel corn – you name it, you can find it at J-B’s Candy Shoppe. It’s no coincidence he’s become affectionately known by some of his loyal customers as ‘Silly Bonka,’ the talented chocolatier. Truffles are his favourite treat to make. The original recipe was from an expert chocolatier in Creston, which he then

tweaked to make his own. “I had to turn the temp up a little bit and cook them a little longer to get the same texture and consistency,” he said. “With chocolate, sometimes it’ll bloom and you just don’t know why. You could do the same thing at a different location or a different altitude and it’ll turn out differently. It’s a funny little temperate item.” Chocolate makes up the majority of sales, but about 20 per cent of customers come in for the ice cream. In terms of wholesale, caramel corn is his number one seller. Bonk’s personal favourite is the irresistible caramel pretzel twist, though he knows he shouldn’t sample them too often. It wasn’t all sweet times from the start, of course, but Bonk said this year J-B’s Candy Shoppe has “turned that corner.” Priding himself on being a truly local supplier, he uses as many locally sourced ingredients as possible, including apples to make candy apples from Willow View Farm and the Apple Barn, here in Abbotsford. In recognition of his success, Bonk’s venture has been nominated for Established Business of the Year (1-19 Employees) for the 2010 Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards. “I was quite surprised, and thankful, of course, that a little shop like ours would be nominated,” he said, before getting back to his latest batch of fudge.

EXCELLENCE

Campbell’s has a sweet business When Judy Campbell learned that Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm and Meadery had been nominated for an Abbotsford Business Excellence Award in the agri-business category, she was “surprised.” Upon reflection, Judy is just as surprised to be helping to run a business related to bees. “I’d been stung as a child, and I used to have a terrible fear of bees,” she admitted with a chuckle. As the story goes, Mike Campbell – Judy’s husband – had long desired to keep bees on their eight-acre property at 2595 Lefeuvre Road. Judy, for obvious reasons, was resistant. But in 1997, a friend from church had a hive in his backyard that he was trying to get rid of. Mike prevailed upon Judy to let him bring the hive home, on the condition that it be stationed at the very back of the property. The growth of that first hive into a thriving business occurred organically. Mike turned out to have a knack for beekeeping, and multiplied his hives. Soon, they were producing more honey than the Campbells could consume themselves or give away to friends, and the hobby became a business. As part of that transition, the Campbells took a basic beekeep-

“I still have respect for the bees, but it’s not a fear like I had.” When Mike retired in 2006, the Campbells took their enterprise to the next level, redeveloping their property to feature a farm store front, honey extraction centre and meadery.

Mead, or honey wine, is just one of an expansive list of bee-derived products the Campbells offer in addition to the honey. The farm store also carries such products as bee’s wax candles, pollen, healing bee hive products, lotions and creams, and raw beeswax. “In Europe and Asia, it’s not uncommon to have pharmaceuticals derived from the beehive,” Judy said. “But our Western culture doesn’t really know about the healing properties. It’s an eyeopening experience for people to come into our store and learn about that.” The Campbells strive to make their business community-oriented and environmentally friendly. Their event calendar is packed with a wide variety of activities, including school tours, junior beekeepers camps, art shows, craft workshops and wine tastings. On the environmental front, the Campbells planted shelter-belt trees to stop wind erosion; installed drip irrigation, which is more efficient than spray irrigation; and use geo-thermal heat. “We wanted to be environmentally friendly and give people a bit of a model of what can be done with a small acreage,” Mike explained.
