Steve Austin and Dolph Lundgren star A movie will be filmed in Abbotsford and nearby locations over the next three weeks. The Package began its first day of production at Dogwood Bowling and Billiards on Monday. It was scheduled to be in Fort Langley today, but will be returning to Abbotsford for other scenes, including some in Matsqui Village. The film will star Dolph Lundgren and Steve Austin, who were also co-stars in The Expendables in 2010. Lundgren is best known for Rocky IV and Universal Soldier. He was not in Abbotsford on Monday. Austin, who was the notorious “Stone Cold” Steve Austin of World Wrestling Entertainment, has made the jump to the action film genre. The tagline for The Package says “a courier for a local crime lord must deliver a mysterious package while being chased by a horde of unusual gangsters.” The entire film will be shot in B.C., directed by Jesse V. Johnson, and the second assistant director is Abbotsfordian Trevor McWhinney. Dogwood owner George Gasparro said the one day of filming included a massive fight scene inside his business. He had the opportunity to meet Austin, and said “he’s a pleasant dude.” More information can be found at Austin’s website brokenskullranch.com.

Lingerie football: City won’t interfere, says Banman Citizens can ‘vote with their wallets’ Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
The debate has begun on whether lingerie football is an appropriate form of entertainment in Abbotsford. It was announced Thursday that the Lingerie Football League (Canada) would put a new team in B.C. which will play out of the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC). While some argue it is a harmless form of sports entertainment, others have expressed concerns that women playing a contact sport, wearing sports bras and panties, is unacceptable in a city-owned facility.
“The entertainment and sports company is doing.

Opponent doubts protest caused sex show cancellation
Organizers of Taboo cite community concern, liquor licence Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
Gerda Peachey is being recognized as one of two reasons the fifth annual Taboo Naughty But Nice Sex Show has been cancelled. In a press release issued Friday, Canwest Production Inc. stated the lack of a roaming liquor licence – which would allow patrons to wander the show carrying their drinks rather than be herded into a specific area – is the primary reason. However, Canwest also stated the show has experienced a “push-back from an increasingly vocal group of Christian fundamentalists, led in large part by Abbotsford mayoral candidate Gerda Peachey.” The company said Peachey and her group are “accusing them of harming the family values of Fraser Valley residents” and creating an increase in crime. The Taboo show has been held at Tradex for the past four years and Canwest said it has been quite successful despite the controversy. Peter Kiddell, president of Canwest, said his company has a strong relationship with the Fraser Valley and hosts a variety of shows. “We have a responsibility to be a good community partner and when the community starts to speak out, we listen,” he said. “Based upon the restrictions placed upon us concerning our ability to serve liquor and the negative push-back we were getting concerning our show’s entertainment and educational offerings, we do not feel that we can meet the expectations of our guests or our exhibitors,” added Kiddell. He said he plans to work with the city, and with Peachey, to address concerns and see if

Gerda Peachey, who addressed council about the Taboo Sex Show last week, questions whether fundamentalist opposition was responsible for the event’s demise. the show could return in the future. Peachey heard about the cancellation when she received a phone call, and had a strong emotional reaction. “I got off the phone and I bawled, because it was so unexpected. I expected this to be a long, dreary and really, quite frankly, lonely

road because I didn’t see any support coming from the Christians at all,” she said. While Peachey is pleased to see the show leave Abbotsford, she is doubtful that her complaints were a major factor. She points to the liquor licence difficulties possibly limiting potential profit, and even the “saturation” of this market, considering the sex show also takes place in Vancouver. “Did they sort of put my name in there as a sort of ‘Hey, Abbotsford, we’re listening to you; we’re good corporate citizens’ ... It’s a good PR move, don’t you think? “Because I don’t really believe that I brought this about,” said Peachey. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said the cancellation was not a city issue. “Tradex did not cancel this show; the Taboo show did. I really don’t think the city needs to wade into this. “That’s a contract between Tradex and the Taboo show. In the meantime, I guess Gerda can claim a victory on that if she wishes, but I don’t know if that’s necessarily the reason,” said Banman. As for the liquor licence concerns, he said it doesn’t so much involve the city but rather the province. “If they want to change those rules they can apply to the province.” Dan Stefanson, executive director of Abbotsford Tourism, which runs Tradex for the city, said the news came as a shock. “We just received a brief message saying we want out, as per the term of our licence agreement, and we honoured that and terminated the contract.” The fifth annual show was scheduled to take place at Tradex at the end of March.
NewsBytes TROUBLE OVER REPLICA GUNS Police received calls on Sunday night that two men in camouflage clothing were running around an Abbotsford neighbourhood with guns. But when police arrived at the scene – in the area of Clearbrook Road and Balfour Drive – they discovered the culprits were actually two 14-year-old boys with airsoft guns (replica firearms that fire plastic pellets). Const. Ian MacDonald said the two didn’t realize they were creating a fuss. MacDonald said the boys started out in one of their backyards, but their adventure game brought them out in the open, alarming residents. He said police spoke to the boys and their parents to let them know it “maybe was not the best idea” to be wielding fake guns in public.
ROBBER IN JAIL WITHIN A DAY An Abbotsford man who robbed a bank last Tuesday afternoon pleaded guilty the following day and was sentenced to two years less a day in prison. Const. Ian MacDonald said Edward Mackenzie, 37, demanded cash from a teller at the CIBC on McCallum Road at about 2 p.m. He did not have any weapons. Police reviewed surveillance video and obtained a suspect description from witnesses. Mackenzie was found at a bus stop on Essendene Avenue and was wearing the same clothing as in the video. MacDonald said he was also carrying cash of the same denomination that had been handed over to him at the bank. He was charged with robbery, breach of his bail conditions, and breach of probation. MacDonald said Mackenzie has numerous previous convictions, including for assault, sexual assault, mischief, theft, causing a police pursuit and various breaches.

House arrest for drugs, guns Police responded to 911 call in 2007
Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News
An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to six months’ house arrest and a 10-year weapons ban after he was convicted of five drug and weapons offences. Jason Warrick Purchase, 38, was sentenced Thursday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. He was convicted last July of possession for the purpose of trafficking, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and two counts of improper storage of a firearm. Purchase and six other occupants of a home on Sumas
Mountain Road were arrested May 9, 2007 after police responded to a 911 call. The caller said her brother had contacted her and indicated he was being threatened by someone with a gun at the property. When police arrived at the scene, Purchase came out of the house first, and the other six exited after police issued a “call out.” According to court documents, a search of the residence then turned up boxes of ammunition, a handgun, 11 improperly stored rifles, and marijuana plants that were being grown and harvested. A police officer testified during Purchase’s judge-only
trial that the home had been in the midst of a marijuana harvest – called a “clipping party” – in which individuals are hired to separate the bud from the rest of the plant. The guns and ammunition were found in plain view in various places around the house. After his conviction, Purchase applied to have the charges stayed, saying he had not been tried in a reasonable amount of time. A second application requested that the proceedings be declared a mistrial because of “a denial of procedural fairness.” The judge ruled against both applications.

entertainment oriented than sports. “Let me tell you what I said to my colleagues: It isn’t good football.” He said the reason people go to watch lingerie football is not about the quality of the game. MacGregor has three daughters and the eldest was both a B.C. Lions and San Francisco 49ers cheerleader. He said he has some insight into the voyeuristic aspect of the sport. “I didn’t particularly care for the male ogling of that ... this is that amped up on steroids, as far as I’m concerned.” However, he said he believes it should be

allowed to take place in this community. “Would I go and see it? No ... But you know, thank God we live in a democratic society, most of the time, and people can choose.” He said the sport does fill stadiums in the U.S. and he puts it in the same vein of mixed martial arts fighting. “Some people like it.” Coun. Simon Gibson spoke out against the sport on Thursday. The new team will join Toronto and five other Canadian cities, yet to be named, to create the Canadian division of the Lingerie Football League. The season begins in August and the squad will play just two home games.

Abbotsford to examine zero per cent utility fee increase for 2012 Water, sewer and trash fees could remain unchanged Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
A zero per cent increase in utility rates will be examined by city council next week. Coun. John Smith recommended the move following a staff report presented on Monday which asked for a 10 per cent increase to sewer and water rates and a 2.3 per cent increase to solid waste (garbage/recycling) fees. “If you add this 10 per cent, which is the preliminary budget, to the 12.7 per cent last year, you have a 23 per cent increase over two years,” said Smith. He said it was too much to ask of taxpayers. Many councillors agreed and asked staff to prepare a new report for next Monday’s meeting. The original report suggested increases which would have seen the average single-family residence in Abbotsford pay a combined $875 a year for water, sewer and solid waste removal in 2012. SMITH That’s an increase of $65 compared to the 2011 average cost of $810. Much of the proposed 10 per cent increase was to help replenish the city’s water capital reserve fund to save for a future water source. A total of $9.3 million has been budgeted this year to go towards capital. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said saving for the future is important, but this year it might be “nice to give everybody a breather” until there is a future water source plan in place. “We can say enough is enough while we figure out what it is (a future water source). And, in the meantime,
Council wants to examine a zero per cent fee hike for utilities including water, sewer and solid waste. we’re going to cut you some slack and allow you to take a breather from the massive increases we’ve had in the last decade,” said Banman. The Abbotsford/Mission Water and Sewer Commission
has begun discussions regarding a new water source which could alter the five-year plan. The review could take months. As a result, the report has been delivered to both councils with the understanding that it could be revised further. In addition, Abbotsford is also examining its tiered water rate system, which could also affect future costs. Some of the utility capital projects to be completed this year include water main replacement. In 2012, $2.3 million will be spent to replace aging infrastructure. The city estimates it will need to spend $36 million on mains over the next 10 years. An additional $100,000 will be spent on a water treatment study for Cannell Lake. “There are new rules from Fraser Health and the Ministry of Health around treating the water from Cannell Lake ... I think it’s the chlorination that’s never totally happened so there’s some money that we’ve had to put aside so we can treat that water,” explained Pizzuto. The project cost estimate is $10 million by 2014. However, that may change, depending on any decisions made on a future water source. Smith said it is still possible to complete these projects without raising rates. “We may find we can cut some expenses, some of those administration expenses ... I’m talking about a whole bunch of stuff, anything that comes under the category of expenses. I want to see them take a magnifying glass to it ... I believe there are a lot of efficiencies to be had,” said Smith. Council has received the report and will hold a public information session on Feb. 15 from 7-9 p.m. at the Clearbrook Library.
First three months the worst for stolen cars Abbotsford Police release auto theft stats
Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News
If your car is going to be stolen in Abbotsford, it’s most likely to happen in the first three months of the year, according to statistics released last week by the police department. Const. Ian MacDonald said January, February and March have seen the highest rates of auto thefts over the last three years (2009 to 2011), but police don’t know why. “ “It’s a bit of a head scratchVIDLEIONE er,” er, he said. N O ws.com T The number of vehicles abbyne sto stolen in January averaged ov 82 over the last three years, while February and March averaged 61. MacDonald said these months account for 33 per cent of the vehicles stolen throughout the year. The three-year monthly average for the number of vehicles stolen through the rest of the year ranges from 36 to 55. MacDonald said the most commonly
stolen vehicles are those manufactured in the 1990s, before anti-theft devices were built in.
Honda Civics averaged 52 per year over the last three years, while Ford pickups were at 51 and Dodge pickups were at 48.
A graph depicting the types of vehicles stolen in Abbotsford shows Honda Civics and Ford and Dodge pick-up trucks as being among the most popular targets.
Completing the top-10 list of most-stolen cars are: Honda Accord (an average of 35 per year), Chevy pickups (23), GMC pickups (18), Jeep Cherokee (14), Dodge Caravan (13), Acura Integra (11) and Toyota Camry (nine). MacDonald said although police have reduced auto theft by 34 per cent since 2009, they are still concerned about the numbers. “We believe many thefts can be avoided and that collectively we can make it even tougher on auto thieves.” He said many people fail to lock their vehicles or do not remove their valuables, often keeping them in plain view. Last year, the Abbotsford Police Department offered free steering wheel locks to the drivers of the most-stolen vehicles. That program is still running, and drivers are welcome to visit the community policing office at 34194 Marshall Rd. for more information. As well, the APD partnered with Canadian Tire, which promotes the sale of anti-theft devices in its Abbotsford store.

Fraser Health penalized for long surgery waits REFUSE Incentive target missed for knee, cataract patients TAX!
Put your foot down! *Retail customers only. Some restrictions apply. See store for details.
TO PAY THE
Now until March 9, 2012
Fraser Health failed to meet provincially mandated targets to rein in surgery wait times in 2010-11 and as a result lost out on an extra $2.6 million in incentive funding that’s dangled by the government each year as a carrot to improve. “Although we increased surgery volumes about three per cent, we were unable to shorten the wait times as much as we needed to meet the target,” health authority spokesman David Plug said. The payments through the health ministry’s patient-focused funding branch rewards health authorities that meet targets to keep waits down and punishes them if they don’t – the money instead goes to reduce the province’s deficit. The rules require no more than 10 per cent of patients wait longer than 26 weeks for knee and hip surgery and 16 weeks for cataract surgery in order for each authority to qualify for activity-based funding in each of those categories. But 19 per cent of patients waited longer than 26 weeks for a knee replacement in the Fraser Health region in the 2010 fiscal year, so the authority lost out on nearly $1.8 million, Plug said. And the authority was docked another $834,000 because 39 per cent of cataract patients waited longer than 16 weeks. Statistics show 55 cataract patients in Fraser actually waited longer than a year for sur-
gery, so the authority also failed in clearing a separate bar that no patients wait more than 12 months. On hip replacements, 11 per cent of patients waited more than 26 weeks – just missing the target – but Plug said the ministry agreed that was close enough and credited the authority $1.6 million. He said the incentive system encourages the region to make its booking and surgery system more efficient, perform more procedures and reduce waits. Fraser tries not to double book the same patient or keep patients on wait lists whose conditions have changed and are no longer ready for surgery. “That helps us have a more accurate list and wait times can come closer to the target,” Plug said. The region also strives to make sure operating rooms have enough capacity to handle scheduled cases and to make sure hip and knee replacements have time reserved. Burnaby Hospital has emerged as a specialty centre for those surgeries, Plug said, and patients are now sometimes being sent there to avoid longer waits elsewhere. It’s not yet clear if the region will hit all three surgery targets this fiscal year, which ends at the end of March. “We’re within 50 or so people of making the hip target,” Plug said, adding Fraser is close to the targets on knee and cataract surgery as well. Fraser performed 2,400 hip replacements and 15,000 cataract surgeries last year.

A matter of choice
It seems Abbotsford just can’t escape controversy over the type of entertainment that comes to town. As opponents to the Taboo Sex Show were celebrating last week over the cancellation of the Abbotsford date, they were bemoaning the announcement of the arrival of the Lingerie Football League (LFL) here this summer. The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre will be home to a team of women who play football in helmets, padding, bras and panties. It’s not exactly the kind of entertainment that puts this city on the cultural map. It also raises an array of social questions involving the sexual exploitation of women, and the messaging to youth. Understandably, many people look with considerable dismay at this “sport,” and the society that tolerates it. However, they won’t be the ones attending the games. And those
who will go obviously won’t be sharing the concerns. Morality issues aside, it’s money that motivated the deal to bring this type of entertainment here. And ultimately, just as we suspect was the case with the Taboo show, rather than community opposition, it will be dollars that decide whether the LFL stays or moves on. The AESC has been running a deﬁcit in the millions since it opened in 2009. Global Spectrum is tasked with managing the facility – ostensibly at a proﬁt. Hence, it’s difﬁcult to turn away opportunities that will generate revenue, which the LFL will do, since the league is renting the facility. Meanwhile, Mayor Banman is declining to be the “morality police” for the community. We agree with that perspective. This is an issue on which we’ll vote with our own values – and wallets.
Why get your knickers in a knot over this? Mark
Rushton On the
Other Hand How often does Abbotsford have a sex show cancelled one day, and virtually the next an announcement that Lingerie Football will be calling our Entertainment and Sport Centre home? I would guess fans won’t care less who wins or loses ... it will be all about wardrobe malfunctions – and it appears from what I have seen in news photos of the players, scanty wardrobes at best. Granted, since this is apparently a full-contact ‘sport,’ the gals will be wearing helmets, shoulder and knee pads. The rest of the uniform, however, leaves little to the imagination. Thus I would suggest that the most popular seats when the girls play home games will be in the end zones, and whoever holds the con-
cession for binocular rentals will likely be rolling in dough. At traditional football games, the binocular boys usually concentrate on the cheerleaders, which brings up the question: If fully clad footballers have scantily clad cheerleaders, then what will the lingerie-attired players have in their cheering squad – business-suited men? It will be very interesting to see what kind of attraction (aside from the obvious to the testosteronefueled male) this sport will have in Abbotsford and on the Lower Mainland. Be quite an eye-opener if lingerie football outdraws the Heat hockey team in the number of paying fans. Then again, if bums on the field put bums in seats, the community’s costs to operate and maintain the facility will go down, and that is the bottom line in the operation of this and all other civic facilities. And that reason – money in the door – I suggest is why the Taboo Sex Show at Tradex was cancelled. The organizers blamed/credited the protests of Gerda Peachey
with their decision to cancel, but I think the reality was that they were denied a ‘walk-about’ liquor licence, which if granted would have increased their revenues. Additionally, it would not surprise me that the number of ‘exhibitors’
If bums on the field put bums in seats, the community’s costs to operate and maintain the facility will go down... at the show was insufficient, in today’s economy, to make the event financially viable. Thus it wouldn’t surprise me if Ms. Peachey’s cited objections were merely used as a convenient excuse to lay blame rather than admit it didn’t make economic sense to hold the event if revenues were based only on attendance rather than the much more lucrative onsite sales.
I am neither an advocate nor an opponent of the show. I believe in the old axiom of ‘live and let live,’ and if people want to attend such an event that is their choice. It was not harmful to adults, and while it may have irritated some sensibilities, it is no more annoying in my mind than UFC fighting or monster truck shows. For the record, I have never attended the Taboo show – at my age I’d only be window-shopping anyway, so why bother? As for lingerie football, it will only be as prurient as one wants to make it. A flick through almost any magazine, or department store catalogue for that matter, will display models wearing less attire. And, while the notion of barely clad football players may be titillating, I have to believe it is not a sport long-lived and certainly not something to get your moral knickers in a knot over.

letters Offensive entertainment Reading that the female-demeaning Lingerie Football League has been granted its own franchise here in Abbotsford was shocking indeed. One can only wonder as to who oversees such decisions in our city. Indeed, who in our fair city sets the morality standards when it comes to the economic side of things? Is there a clear line drawn anywhere? Or, heaven forbid, are Abbotsford citizens willing to ditch all morality standards when it comes to making a buck or two? We sure do not need such lowdown under-par garbage enter-
It’s not just hearing loss...
tainment to help us over the hump. Besides, a clean wholesome sport like the Heat hockey team is unable to fill the arena with spectators. What makes any of the organizers figure that their latest brain wave of inviting an entertainment venue that’s filled with obscene, distasteful, offensive and repugnant dress and behaviours will do any better when it comes to selling tickets and making monies? Surely, there’s got to be more respectable entertainment to get hold of.
Fatigue, Tension, Stress, Depression
Avoidance or withdrawal from social situations
No city hall moral police Beach volleyball/roller derby and now lingerie football – fully clothed on all the important body parts. We have a beautiful entertainment centre which the taxpayers of the city voted to build. We need to use it, fill it and make it work for us. You can choose to attend or stay home. As I am writing this, across my TV screen comes David Beckham modelling underwear. I can watch it or turn it off. I walk
through the malls and see store windows with lingerie. I can walk by or go in and shop. We are all responsible for our own choices. I did not vote in the Abbotsford city council to be the moral police. Having said that I cheer and applaud all girls and women who play sports, take charge of their own sexuality and stay happy and healthy. All this done despite what uniform they wear. Go, girls, go!

Abbotsford Council will hold a Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m. on February 20, 2012, in the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford, B.C., under the provisions of the Local Government Act to consider the following bylaws.

I will be praying for Jason Blumenfeld, the general manager of the AESC, the mayor and the council members, and for the women of Abbotsford.

sexual predators on the loose. Can you not see the irony of this? I am also offended that this paper would run a front page picture of this league. I appeal to the men of Abbotsford to protect and defend the women in your lives against exploitation in any shape or form. I appeal to the mayor and to the council to use your influence to stop this desperate economic effort to save tax dollars at the expense of women

The BC Cancer Agency has fired a staff member it says mishandled nearly 200 files and potentially delayed screening of people identified as genetically predisposed to cancer. The compromised cases involve 192 patients who used the Hereditary Cancer Program at the BC Cancer Agency sites in Surrey, Abbotsford and Vancouver between August and December of 2010. The program provides counselling and referrals for genetic testing for patients whose family histories suggest they may be predisposed to develop cancer. Because of incomplete documentation of the affected files, referring physicians may not have been properly notified of any findings. Dr. Barb McGillivray, the programâ€™s medical director, said patients were all properly evaluated and advised of findings by counsellors at the time they were assessed. â€œIn some cases, the next step â€“ sending a letter back to the referring physician and outlining our recommendation â€“ that did not occur,â€? she said. As a result, the agency is following up to make sure the patients and their relatives are informed. Anyone who was assessed by the program at the three sites in the second half of 2010 and has not yet been contacted is asked to call 604-

Assailant deported in assault case Sex-trade worker attacked
Chibesa was then located, and a subsequent search of his Abbotsford residence turned up small quantities of cocaine and marijuana. MacDonald said Chibesa had been in Canada on a visa, and spent one semester studying at a local post-secondary facility, although he wouldnâ€™t identify which one. He credited the victim for her courage in speaking out and said, although she was a sextrade worker, â€œit could have been anyoneâ€? who was attacked by Chibesa. â€œBy speaking out and working with police, she (the victim) not only ensured that Chibesa was held accountable for this incident, she prevented the possibility of any other victims in Canada,â€? MacDonald said. In addition to his time in Abbotsford, Chibesa also lived in Kamloops for a period. He received a speeding ticket there in 2007, and was charged with two counts of breaching his probation in September 2011 after he had been released from prison.
A man who was sentenced last year for the assault of an Abbotsford sex-trade worker has been deported back to his home country of Zimbabwe, Africa. Const. Ian MacDonald said Wilson Mulenga Chibesa, 24, exhausted all avenues of appeal and was deported on Jan. 30. He previously pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm and two counts of drug possession, and was sentenced on June 24, 2011 to jail and probation. The charges stemmed from an incident in the early morning hours of Sept. 25, 2010, when Chibesa and a 44-year-old woman met at an apartment in the 33500 block of South Fraser Way. He offered her money in exchange for sexual services. When she asked to be paid, Chibesa pushed her to the ground and stuck fingers down her throat to stop her from screaming. The victim was later treated in hospital and she reported the incident to police.

The enhancements arrive in time for Camaro’s 45th birthday, which will be celebrated with a special 45th Anniversary Special Edition package, offered on Camaro and Camaro SS. Continuing the tradition of Camaro anniversary models, the 45th Anniversary Special Edition carries all
the upgrades for 2012, with additional unique design elements, inside and out. The interior updates include a revised instrument panel appearance, with new instrument graphics and trim, as well as a new steering wheel design and a power lift feature for the front passenger seat.
The steering wheel features a fresh new look and ergonomic improvements intended to support performance driving. Also new is a Rear Vision Package, which adds a rearview camera system and an auto-dimming mirror to the existing rear park assist feature. The rearview camera system complements
the rear park assist by providing a video display of the area behind the car, with the video image appearing in the car’s inside rearview mirror. Also coming in early 2012 is the highperformance Camaro ZL1, the most technologically advanced car ever developed in its segment.

Heat looking for answers Loss to Barons is Abby’s eighth in 10 games Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
In the wake of his team’s 2-1 loss to the Oklahoma City Barons on Saturday evening, Abbotsford Heat head coach Troy Ward dipped into his stockpile of metaphors to find something appropriate for Valentine’s Day. “Confidence is a funny thing, and so is love,” mused Ward, whose team has lost eight of its last 10 games. “If you don’t have love, it’s tough to be in a relationship. And if you don’t have confidence, it’s tough to win hockey games. “I can tell you, this group right now, we’re really struggling with confidence.” The Heat did a lot of things right against the AHL’s top team on Saturday, only to have their good works rendered null and void by Yann Danis. The Barons goalie saw his lengthy shutout streak snapped in the third period on a tremendous individual effort by Heat centre Ben Walter, but he was otherwise spectacular. Danis stopped 24 of 25 shots, including a highlight-

“He gives us a chance to win every night, and I can’t say enough about him.” The Barons took a 1-0 lead on Linus Omark’s goal at 14:49 of the first period, and Danis, the AHL leader in goals-against average (1.94), kept the Heat at bay until
the final frame. With his team starving for a goal, Walter came through with gritty effort. Carrying the puck with speed into the Barons zone, he pushed OKC blueliner Colten Teubert backward, then flicked a top-corner shot over Danis’s glove. The goal snapped a shutout streak of 173:16 for Danis, which included a 4-0 win over the Heat on Thursday at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary. But just past the midway point of the final frame, Barons blueliner Kirill Tulupov hammered a slap shot from the right point that found its way through a maze of bodies in front of Heat goalie Henrik Karlsson. Tulupov’s first career AHL goal stood up as the game-winner. The Barons boosted their AHLbest record to 32-12-2-3, while Abbotsford fell to 26-20-3-0. The Heat’s recent tailspin has been induced by a wave of injuries and call-ups, and the team endured more subtractions on the weekend. Centres Roman Horak and Paul Byron were summoned by the Calgary Flames, and defenceman Brian Connelly was knocked out of Saturday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Q The Heat host the Houston Aeros in a Friday-Saturday set at the AESC (7 p.m. both nights).

Cascade hoopsters sweep Spartans Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
For the first time in their six-year CIS tenure, the University of the Fraser Valley men's basketball team will have home-court advantage for the first round of the playoffs. The Cascades, ranked No. 5 in the nation, locked up the right to host a Canada West quarter-final series by virtue of an 89-70 road win over the Trinity Western Spartans on Thursday evening at the Langley Events Centre. UFV held a slim 39-38 lead at halftime, but broke the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Spartans 32-13 in the frame. Sam Freeman led a balanced attack with 19 points, while Kyle Grewal (16 points), Joel Friesen (15), Mike James (11) and Jasper Moedt (10) also scored in double figures. UFV clinched second place in the Pacific Division with a 13-5 record. Q The Cascades women had already clinched home-court advantage to open the playoffs, but they still felt they had something to prove in their regular season finale against TWU. Two weeks ago, the Spartans upset the Cascades 79-51 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. UFV put forth a better effort on Thursday, pulling away down the stretch for a 74-65 win. Aieisha Luyken (19 points) paced the offence as the Cascades improved to 12-6. Q The UFV hoopsters now gear up to host a pair of best-of-three first round playoff series at the Envision Athletic Centre, Feb. 23-25. The men take on the Lethbridge Pronghorns, while the women face the Calgary Dinos.

Returning the lineup after a lengthy injury absence, Kevin Lourens ignited the Abbotsford Pilots on Saturday. Lourens, the Pilots' secondleading scorer last season, had been out since Nov. 20 due to an upper-body injury. He made his presence felt in a big way Saturday, racking up two goals and two assists in a 6-0 road win over the Port Moody Black Panthers. "It's good to have him back," Pilots coach Jim Cowden
resented a nice bounce-back effort from the Pilots, who had dropped a 2-1 decision to the North Delta Devils at home on Friday. The Pilots (25-24-2-0) are tied for first place in the Pacific International Hockey League's Harold Brittain Conference with the Aldergrove Kodiaks. Both teams have 52 points, but the Kodiaks have two games on hand. The Pilots have a golden opportunity to make up some ground on Friday, as they host Aldergrove (7:30 p.m., MSA Arena).

The Hurricanes, who won the B.C. high school team title in 2011, lapped the field at the Upper Fraser Valley zone championships at W.J. Mouat Secondary on Saturday. They racked up 99 points to easily outdistance the host Hawks, who finished second with 66 points. “It was a great tournament for us – the boys wrestled really well,” summarized Hansen head coach Sucha Mann. “We’re definitely in the race (for another B.C. title), but we’ve got a few obstacles.” Mann said a pair of Burnaby schools – perennial powerhouse Burnaby Central and St.
Thomas More – figure to provide the toughest competition at provincials, which run Feb. 23-25 in Penticton. But there isn’t a weak link in Mann’s roster of elite grapplers. Eight Hansen athletes qualified for provincials, and Mann believes all of them have a shot at the podium. Four Hurricanes won gold at the zone meet, including Jobanjit Phulka (78 kilograms), Harman Basra (51 kg), Justin Gill (66 kg) and Manveer Gill (84 kg).
DEPTH, TALENT IN ABBOTSFORD The local wrestling scene is as strong as ever – five finals on the boys side were all-Abbotsford clashes, illustrating a remarkable amount of depth.
Those matches included MEI’s Dave Sharma beating schoolmate Nav Dhillon at 45 kg; Mouat’s Amrit Benning topping Hansen’s Maneet Klair at 54 kg; Mouat’s Amrit Sund taking down Yale’s Matt Dignan at 57 kg; Justin Gill beating his Hansen teammate Baldeep Gill at 66 kg; and Manveer Gill of the Hurricanes beating MEI’s Rajin Gill at 84 kg. Other local gold medallists included Manny Gill, a threetime provincial champ from Abby Collegiate, winning at 74 kg, and Mouat’s Amrit Sund triumphing at 57 kg. Teji Kullar of Abby Traditional, the lone male grappler at 41 kg, won by default. On the girls’ side, two locals took gold – Pooja Batra of the Howe Bulldogs at 47 kg, and Monisha Bajwa of the Yale Lions at 75 kg.
Tanvir Brar of the Mouat Hawks picks up three points in a 74 kg match against Aman Kang of Queen Elizabeth of Surrey on Saturday.

Bearcat spikers upset No. 2-ranked Mariners Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
The Columbia Bible College men’s volleyball team scored a momentum-boosting upset win on Saturday, knocking off the
Vancouver Island University Mariners, the No. 2-ranked team in the nation. The Mariners had crushed the host Bearcats in three sets on Friday evening at
Columbia Place – an effort that head coach Rocky Olfert alternately referred to as “a collapse” and “a debacle.” But the CBC men – the defending
national champions – bounced back with an impressive four-set win the following afternoon. Will Quiring and Matt Kaminski led the charge with 13 and 12 kills, respectively,
and Danny Grant notched seven kills and six blocks as the No. 11-ranked Bearcats improved to 14-8. They’re third in the PacWest conference, while VIU (18-4) still
holds down first. Olfert said the win signaled growth in his team’s mental toughness. “After the game on Friday, the guys gathered themselves on
Free time just got sweeter.

their own for a bit of a gut-check time,” he said. “Then they came out on Saturday and responded really well. “We knew going in that it would be a good measuring stick for us, so the win is a good confidence-booster. But we’ve still got a ways to go yet.” Q The Bearcats women’s volleyballers also served notice they’ll be a team to be reckoned with down the stretch of the season. The Mariners came in ranked No. 1 in the nation, but CBC played them tough both nights – they pushed them to five sets on Friday, falling 15-12 in the final set, and won the first set Saturday before eventually falling in four. The fast-improving Bearcats (11-10) are in fourth place. Q Elsewhere in the PacWest, the University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball squad was pushed to the limit in a pair of weekend wins over the Camosun Chargers in Victoria. The fifth-place Chargers took the Cascades to five sets on both Saturday and Sunday, but the nation’s No. 4-ranked team escaped with the victory both nights to improve to 18-4. Q The UFV men’s volleyballers suffered a sweep at the hands of the Chargers, falling in four sets Saturday and in straight sets Sunday. The Cascades, at 7-15, are clinging to the sixth and final PacWest playoff berth. Q Abbotsford’s two college volleyball programs lock horns this week at Columbia Place, as the Bearcats host the Cascades on Thursday and Friday. The women play at 6 p.m. both nights, followed by the men at 7:45 p.m. Q In PacWest basketball action, the CBC squads dropped four games on the road. The Bearcats men (1-13) fell 109-80 to the previously winless Quest Kermodes in Squamish on Friday, and lost 82-72 to the Capilano Blues in North Vancouver on Saturday. The CBC women (0-15) lost 79-34 to Quest and 95-28 to Capilano. The Bearcats hoopsters wrap up the season on Saturday with road games against the Douglas Royals.

Todd was a loving, gentle, kind man who embraced every day of his life with passion and energy like no other.

Todd loved camping, dirt biking, anything outdoors. He shared these passions with his family and friends. Todd was an amazing father to his three girls, Macie, Chase and Rylee. His kind and gentle ways will be with them always. Todd’s life would seem too short to many, but for those who were touched by him, understand that the quality of his life far exceeded the quantity of the time in which he lived. Love you always and forever. A special Thank You to Pastor Art Birch, Dr. Brown, Dr. Mitchenson and Dr. Tan for their compassionate and loving care. Also a heartfelt thank you to all the nurses on the Palliative Care ward for their kindness to Todd and I.

HELEN WIEBE Helen was born on February 13, 1920 at Dalmeny, Saskatchewan, and died peacefully on February 9, 2012 in Abbotsford to be present with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whom she loved and served many years of her life. Her parents were George Willam and Margareta (Niebuhr) Wiebe.
She was the sixth child in the Wiebe family of eleven. Helen’s education in school was to grade eight. Her favourite subject was mathematics. She enjoyed outdoor sports, in summer it was softball and in the winter, ice skating. These sport activities helped her to relax after a day’s work. After ﬁnishing grade eight she had to stay at home to help her mother with household duties. This she did until her younger sisters ﬁnished their elementary education. Helen had one year of Bible School in Dalmeny before she left home. Helen’s ﬁrst jobs away from home were in Saskatoon for several years. She then moved to Vancouver, BC. There she again had several different jobs; the longest and most interesting was thirty-four years with the T-Eaton’s department store. Helen worked at the store until it closed. She then was ready for retirement. Helen had a good singing voice. For many years she sang in the choir at the First Baptist Church. In her later years she sang in the West Vancouver Senior’s Choir. She did this until her doctor informed her not to drive her car anymore. This affected her emotional outlook for the future. Her brother, George, felt she needed to be in an assisted living care home. He moved her to the Tabor Court in Abbotsford where she received very good care. After about four years there she required full care so she was moved to the Cottage Pavilion. Here she also received full care for the last year of her life. Helen was predeceased by her parents, two sisters, and ﬁve brothers. She is survived by her one sister, Margaret, in San Jose, California, two brothers, Walter (Rosa) in Vancouver, and George (Ruby) in Abbotsford. There also are two sisters-in-law, Dorothy in Vancouver and Elizabeth in Abbotsford plus many nieces and nephews in Canada and the United States. We express our thanks to the people that took good care of Helen in the Tabor Court and the Cottage Pavilion. Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 969 Burrard Street, downtown Vancouver.

SULPICO Anita Celestial Mrs. Anita Celestial Sulpico late of Abbotsford, BC passed away on February 10, 2012 at the age of 87 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. She is survived by her children, Noli (Nick) Buyco, Melende (Vicente) Paranpan, Noel (Teodora) Sulpico, Rodolfo (Agnes) Sulpico, Cristina (Romeo) Durana; grandchildren, Emily (Vaughn) Mangum, Stephanie (Christopher) Galloway, Jonathan, Rita, Sarah, Justin, Joshua, Joseph, Roel, Rex, Alysha, Matthew, Ian Nathelle; great grandchildren, Nicolas, Noah, Nathan, Olivia; and her only surviving sister, Carmen (Joaquin) Sianson. She was predeceased by her husband Maximo Barrido Sulpico in 2009. Being a mother of ﬁve, grandmother of fourteen, and great grandmother of four, Anita Celestial had to have limitless amounts of energy, and that she did. Anita was born in the Philippines and was a self taught bookkeeper with a knack for numbers and a seamstress. She arrived in Canada in 1983 and up until present, Anita’s feisty personality combined with her love for laughter kept her young at heart throughout the many years she tended to all of her grandchildren in Canada and the U.S. During her spare time, she went to mass, listened to music, gardened, sewed, read ﬁction and the news, and kept a good sense of humour. During her last days, the constant presence of her extended family and friends was a testament to her virtue. This sweet, sweet lady will be missed by all that have met her, but we are all rest assured that she has come full circle to the beginning; in Heaven walking joyfully and tending to her garden of loved ones below, hand in hand with her Maximo. Prayers will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 7:00 pm, at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Ave., Abbotsford, BC. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 10:00 am, at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church, with Father George Edattukarran ofﬁciating. Interment will follow at Valley View Cemetery. Tributes and condolences may be left at: www.hendersonsabbotsfordfunerals.com
