Fun Haus evicted

NewsBytes TEEN STABBED

Loud music blamed for damage at sex shop next door

A 16-year-old girl is recovering in hospital after suffering stab wounds to her chest early Sunday morning in Abbotsford. Police were called to a home in the 32500 block of Pandora Avenue at about 1:15 a.m. Const. Ian MacDonald said police, as of yesterday afternoon, were still trying to find the suspect, who knew the victim. The girl was first taken to Abbotsford Regional Hospital before being airlifted to a Vancouver hospital. She is in stable condition. The incident is still being investigated by the major crime unit, which did not provide details on the circumstances of the stabbing.

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford non-profit arts group has been evicted from its new location following complaints from an adjoining business. The Fun Haus Arts Society is now looking for a new spot to set up its coffee house and band venue after the owner of Love Essentials and Lingerie claimed she suffered damages to store products that fell off shelves. Store owner Denise Wheeler did not return calls from the Abbotsford News. Maitland (Mac) Cassias, president of the society, said Wheeler complained to the building’s owner that the damage was caused during renovations and while both live and recorded music were being played. The society’s rental agreement began Nov. 1, but organizers were permitted into the shop — located at 2388A McCallum Rd. – starting on Oct. 8 to do renovations, Cassias said. That included the removal of a wall that divided the small space. Volunteers also painted walls with designs such as zebra stripes and a Frankenstein mural against a lime-green backdrop. Cassias, 28, a social work student, said the goal was to provide an “inclusive, safe

Before this, the Fun Haus operated on an informal basis out of basements in homes. He said the McCallum Road site was one of two locations the organization considered. The realtor negotiating the rental on behalf of the owner, Doug Chow, was aware that live music would be played there, he maintained. Cassias said the damage caused to the

products at Love Essentials was due to a “structurally unsound” wall that the two shops share. Even leaning on the wall can cause the shelf on the other side to shake, he said.

Chow said the Love Essentials owner Continued on A6

New Clearbrook overpass opens Traffic began to flow across the new overpass at the Clearbrook Road interchange early Monday morning. A break in the wet weather allowed paving crews to complete the bridge deck surface last week. A temporary roundabout is in place until the new one can be completed and tied into the interchange. “It’s (the project) pretty much on schedule,” said Art Kastelein, manager of drainage and special projects for the city. He said traffic will remain single lane in each direction until work on the roundabout is complete. The proposed completion date for the new interchange is Jan. 6, weather permitting. Traffic also shifted over to

the new McCallum Road interchange early last week. The deadline to complete the three capital projects (Clearbrook and McCallum interchanges and renovations to the Abbotsford Airport) is March 31, 2011. “I guess the next big milestone will be when we demolish the old overpasses,” said Kastelein. The old Clearbrook overpass is scheduled for demolition the week of Nov. 15. For more details, visit the project websites at www. clearbrookinterchange.ca and www.mccalluminterchange.ca. The latest highway traffic conditions, as well as a web cam at the McCallum Road interchange, are available at www.DriveBC.ca.

REVIEW COMING Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman has asked ICBC to help educate the public about the new drinking-and-driving penalties. He has asked for the information to be provided in the annual Counterattack advertising program. Coleman said it has become an “urban legend” that people can’t have even one drink if they’re going to drive home. That’s having an impact on restaurant and pub business that was not intended, he added. He also said more education is needed on roadside penalties for those under .08. Cars do not have to be towed if they can be parked legally somewhere or if there is another person who can drive.

A fundraising walk/run held last month has surpassed its goal of collecting $60,000 for Cares Counselling and Restoration Services in Abbotsford. The organization raised $65,000, mainly from the “dollar to dollar challenge.” The challenge involved eight business people donating up to $31,000 by matching every dollar raised by the 139 registrants. The full amount was met, resulting in $62,000. The remaining $3,000 was collected from registration fees. The 5 km Dare to Care Fun Walk/Run and the 10 km Challenge were held on Oct. 23 at Rotary Stadium.

Gala support ‘overwhelming’ Kevin MILLS

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford showed its generosity again on Saturday night as the 12th annual Crystal Gala took place to raise funds for the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. “It was overwhelming. The support we received from people, overwhelming. I’m just speechless,” said Dorothy Dyck, co-chair of the annual gala, which was again sold out. Dyck has been involved in the event since it began a dozen years ago and she is constantly amazed at the support it receives. “After 12 years, you just don’t know what to expect. But, every year people come out and support us. We’ve even had requests for tickets for next year,’ she said. An official total won’t be available until

sometime next week but Dyck says people were generous in their donations and bids on auction items. “I really don’t know what the total is and I’m not even going to guess,” she said. The event has generated about $150,000 per year. This year, moneys raised will go towards the Crystal Breast Health Unit in the Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The theme of this year’s event was Saffron and the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre was decked out with black cloth to make it look like a tent. “We wanted guests to feel like they had been transported to an exotic, mystical land,” said Dyck. No theme has been chosen for the 13th annual event, but Dyck says they will begin planning it, after a two-week rest.

Looking for new location functions and performing and visual arts centres. Chow agreed to return the full $1,750 deposit to the group, provided they returned the walls to an off-white shade, which Cassias said they will do this week. He said they are now looking for another place, but is upset that they were forced out of the building without an opportunity to rectify the situation. “Music is not illegal. We have every right to exist,” he said.

was claiming $1,600 in damages, but the main reason he wanted the arts group gone was because they had played live music at the facility on the previous weekend. He said this is contrary to the zoning bylaw for that area.

“Lots! But not having to cook and having my best friend Snoopy live with me is at the top!”

The Abbotsford News received more than 20 emails on Friday from Fun Haus supporters upset about the eviction. Many of them referred to the lack of suitable and affordable venues for local bands. “I continue to find it amazing how hard it is for youth to have a place to go and listen and see amazing bands, arts, poetry and more in their community,” said Jon Aaron, a member of the band The Bone Daddies.

Local charities benefit from gleaner Lorene KEITCH Black Press

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The idiom certainly applies to Keith Campbell. This long-time Greendale resident spends several hours a day, two to three days a week slogging through muddy farm fields, collecting produce left behind by commercial pickers and machines. Then he donates it to area charitable organizations, including the Abbotsford Community Services Food Bank and the Abbotsford Salvation Army. Campbell keeps the operation simple, using only his scooter to get around, with a little trailer behind for the food. His record haul in the trailer was 200 pounds of potatoes. He had one other man who helped – “just us two old geezers,” Campbell explains – but is currently doing it on his own. Campbell is not a farmer by trade. His career was as a heavy duty mechanic in con-

struction and logging. He retired in 2001 and found himself puttering around his two-acre property in Greendale. This hobby allows him to do something productive with his time, something he clearly enjoys. He does not get into the philosophy behind giving, or the generosity of his deed. In fact, he is pretty humble about the whole thing. “It keeps me out of the mall,” Campbell says simply. He started collecting vegetables three years ago after he noticed how much waste there was in the harvested fields. He figured that he had time on his hands and a body able to work, so he took it upon himself to ask farmers if he could pick leftover produce from the fields to donate to the people who most need it. He collects broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, corn, potatoes, carrots and blueberries. “I picked at least 600 pounds of blueberries this year,” Campbell

Keith Campbell retrieves a spud left behind by commercial harvesters. He gleans what he can, and donates the fresh produce to charities.

estimates. Campbell rigged up his shop vacuum to work as a blueberry picker, sucking up all those tiny moist berries in a fraction of

the time it would take to pick by hand. He picks from 10 to 12 fields in an average season, which starts with blueberries in July and ends

in November with potatoes and brussels sprouts.

Regardless of the crop, there are always leftovers when the commercial picking is done. Farmers pick some crops by hand, such as cabbage and broccoli. “But they only do two to three pickings. There’s not enough volume to bring a crew out to pick again,” Campbell explains. Others crops are picked by machines. With it being so wet this year, Campbell says the machines have had an especially hard time picking up the potatoes. That means a lot of produce will go to rot in the soil. “Usually I’m just scrounging behind,” he says. “Normally I walk a lot of miles to find what I need.” He is currently in the middle of potato picking season – not the easiest of vegetables to glean. They are heavy, and dirty, and require a lot of lugging to get back to his little trailer. Yet

A7

Campbell figures he picked roughly 1,000 pounds of potatoes in the last week alone. He spends two or three hours picking, then takes the produce back to his Greendale home to wash before bringing it to the charitable organizations. Ian Pratt is the community ministries director at the Chilliwack Salvation Army. He says there are actually two or three different individuals who glean fields and donate the produce to the local church for their lunch program. “They’re a great help to the food bank and kitchen,” says Pratt. “We use the produce in the soup kitchen for nutritious meals and our free distribution counter – if we have excess, we hand out produce too.” Organizations like the Salvation Army depend on donations in various forms to help run their programs.

Comment on any story online at abbynews.com or email newsroom@abbynews.com Published and printed by Black Press Limited 34375 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford.

Right time for cut? More than a few eyebrows went up last week with the news that British Columbians will see their provincial income tax bills trimmed by 15% to make up for the harmonized sales tax. Can the B.C. government afford the tax break, or will we pay in other ways? After a diet of bad budget news and less-than-stellar economic predictions, it seems now isn’t the best time for a tax break. Health care is struggling, the education system is strained, and money is scarce for important transit improvements. Can these government institutions be sustained when the treasury will bleed by $568 million next year? It’s true that an extra $30 to $50 a month might help on the spending end for individuals whose household budgets are continuously being hit by higher costs. And the province says it can afford to give

some cash back because corporate balance sheets are recovering, resulting in $2.1 billion in additional government revenue over program spending over the next three years. But even if government coffers do fill up, is a quick refund for angry taxpayers the way to go? Perhaps enhanced investments in education, healthy care and transit might do more good. In education, for example, school districts are continuing to struggle to meet class size and composition regulations under Bill 33. In health care, hospitals struggle with waiting lists for elective surgery and have to fundraise constantly to keep up to date with technology. Cash back or re-investment? That’s a question that deserves more discussion. – Black Press

Politics prevail over ‘paradise’ Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand The devastation was mind-numbing – literally hundreds of thousands of acres laid waste recalling impressions of what a nuclear holocaust would create. The heat of the forest fires so great that even the organic matter was burned out of the soil, yet oddly there were small patches of long, dried grass still standing amidst a sea of blackness, like micro oases within a desecrated desert. What was once almost impenetrable forest has become open land, enabling us to see for hundreds of meters through blackened sticks. These were fires responsible last summer for the smoke that choked the air as far east as Manitoba and parts of Ontario. And where the flames licked, the devastation was stunning. Yet between the two fires that tore through the northern Cariboo where I like to play, and where my friend owns a large

ranch, the serenity and often spectacular beauty remained. In fact, on a chilly morning last week my buddy and I were awed at the sight of sunlight flashing through the frost on the grass, the tiny prisms sparkling more brightly and more colourful than any diamond. Iridescent blues, greens, yellows and reds turned the meadows and bushes into a brilliant Christmas-scape. A stunningly beautiful contrast to the catastrophic wasteland left by the nearby fires. So it was on Wednesday evening after dinner, enjoying a drink and recounting the marvels of nature that we heard my rancher friend’s big diesel truck rattle in from Quesnel. John came crashing through the door with the words “Have you heard the news?” My immediate reaction was … we are 80 miles from the nearest power pole or telephone line. Cell coverage is even more distant. Radios, at least the one in my pickup, emit only static. “Campbell has resigned!” Suddenly all thoughts of nature, the beauty and the blackness, were gone. As someone who, for all intents and purpose, lives and breathes the goings on of politics I was aghast . . . not that I

wasn’t expecting such an announcement but that it would happen while I was away in never-never land. The next morning, after a long night of what-ifs and who-ifs in regard to the future of government in British Columbia only two words came to mind – information deprivation.

Once in cell range, voicemails were recovered, calls were made, and I was on my way back to the future. I couldn’t be sitting in essentially the middle of nowhere while the rest of the world (at least those in reach of B.C. media) knew what was, or about to be, going on. Had the various races to replace Gordon Campbell already begun, when was he actually leaving, how would government work if he’s already stepped down? The questions were many and far ranging, and I had no way of knowing. It was

like a consuming fire, raging without anything to quench it. So, the cabin was cleaned out, the truck loaded, any moose to be found was left a lot more tomorrows, and we began the nine and a half hour drive to bundles of newspapers, saved in my absence, that would be ravenously consumed. Once in cell range, voicemails were recovered, calls were made, and I was on my way back to the future. A future that will soon see a new face leading government, and most likely also a new one leading the NDP, since Carole James’ greatest asset to longevity was Gordon Campbell. I wonder if it was just coincidence that yesterday The Vancouver Sun reported Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson’s polling numbers. Perhaps they are enough to convince him to jump back into provincial politics, only this time as leader of the Opposition rather than as non-descript bencher during his brief term in the legislature. Trust me, the coming months will create a markedly new direction for all aspects of provincial politics. For me it beats the “bleep” out of sitting in the backwoods, despite its calming and measured serenity.

But I personally know Maitland and Monica, and they are not drug dealers, nor are they “preying” on the youth of Abbotsford.

Choose guitars over gangs

I read with dismay your report on extending the AirCare program and the apparent justification for this expense to Lower Mainland drivers. I am a senior who drives maybe 2,500 kilometers annually and can’t afford a newer model car. Every year I need to report for inspection, and if failed for any reason I am faced with $100 per hour shop time plus parts, HST, etc. to repair. How about an exemption for us Abbotsford oldtimers? If the police see tailpipe emissions they could note the licence plate number and a notice to report could be mailed to the owner. Gives us a break, Patricia Ross, we all don’t enjoy an income like you have. Martyn Hough

Hospital fees will hurt In response to your view on charging people $29.40 per day while recuperating in the hospital, this is just our Liberal government taking more money from poor people who can’t afford it. It’s going to be hardest on seniors with fixed incomes. Does this government not have any feelings for the people that pay their salaries so they can afford good health care for themselves? This sneaky, greedy government has got to go. I have never felt so sick about a group of people who just don’t seem to care how they treat us taxpayers. Dennis Hagen

It both angers and frustrates me to see that the Fun Haus is seen as such a negative thing. Guitars over gangs! Music is the best way for youth to express them selves, to commit, and learn what responsibility really means. These bands that play there know what commitment is about. Drinking happens everywhere. If anything, the Fun Haus was created as a place to steer kids away from useless, harmful drug use. These kids in Abby use drugs as a way to keep themselves from boredom – the Fun Haus is an alternative. It allows Abby kids to play music, and cherish talent and hard work, instead of drugs and alcohol. It kept kids lively and looking forward to healthy fun. The posters are disgusting and completely inaccurate propaganda. Negin Izad

On the contrary, The Fun Haus provides a safe, loving place where everyone is treated with unity and respect. The Fun Haus never sold alcohol, or drugs in any form to anyone, of legal age or not. Any consumption of narcotics, legal or not, was at the person’s

letters Addiction not a disease Laws change habits In the discussion about Abbotsford’s serious drug problem and harm reduction policies, Mayor George Peary has raised a basic question: “Are drug users criminals or victims?” Implicit in this question is the more fundamental question: “Is drug addiction a disease?” “Drug addiction is a brain disease” says Dr. Nora Volkov. Some experts disagree. Addiction is a Choice is the title of an influential book by Dr. Jefferey A. Schaler. Abbotsford’s response to these basic questions will shape our taxation and treatment policies. For me the evidence is clear. Drug addiction is not a disease – it is a habit that produces disease.

Addiction begins with a decision to inject a drug and is then developed by additional injections or other consumption. It is thus an acquired habit. Whether usage of all lesser drugs should continue to be criminalized or whether such usage should be treated like society treats alcohol and tobacco consumption is a question in its own right. But let us, the taxpayers of Abbotsford, not be taken in by assertions about addiction itself being a disease, or drug addicts being primarily victims, an assertion which tends to release addicts from any responsibility for their bad decisions and their sorry plight.

Saying the the new drinking driving law is tough on pubs is the equivalent of saying the new cell phone laws where you cannot talk while driving are tough on the phone companies. I drink and drive, but not at the same time. People need to change their habits and designate drivers. It is a state of mind, it is habit. Same as the smoking laws that enraged pubs and restaurants. In time, people got used to it and adjusted their habits. Now people will think twice before driving impaired. In fact, they will think

twice before drinking at all. They can take turns being the designated driver. The judgment goes down with every drink. I have a few friends who would drink and drive on a regular basis, sometimes when they were really drunk. They have stopped altogether or it is much less than it was. So I applaud the laws. The pub owners can be more diligent about creating ride share programs, fight for more late night transit options, etc. Tony Brinks

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields.

How the poem came about A young friend and former student of Major John McCrae, Lieut. Alexis Helmer of Ottawa, had been killed by a shell burst on May 2, 1915. Lieutenant Helmer was buried later that day in the little cemetery outside McCrae’s dressing station. McCrae had performed the funeral ceremony in the absence of the chaplain. The next day, sitting on the back of an ambulance parked near the dressing station beside the Canal de l’Yser, just a few hundred yards north of Ypres, McCrae vented his anguish by composing a poem.

Proud to support the men and women of The Canadian Forces – every day!

In the nearby cemetery, McCrae could see the wild poppies that sprang up in the ditches in that part of Europe, and he spent twenty minutes of precious rest time scribbling fifteen lines of verse in a notebook. It was very nearly not published. Dissatisfied with it, McCrae tossed the poem away, but a fellow officer retrieved it and sent it to newspapers in England. The Spectator, in London, rejected it, but ‘Punch’ published it on December 8, 1915.

Jean only wanted to help when she got the call from her granddaughter, saying she was in trouble. The caller identified herself as “Anne� and said she had flown to Montreal on the spur of the moment with some friends to attend a wedding. Anne said the group had been drinking, but she was the most sober of all of them, so she volunteered to drive. A small accident occurred, and Anne was charged with impaired driving. She needed help to get out of jail. She even passed the phone to a man she said was a public defender, who identified himself as “John Church.� John told Jean that if she wired $4,000 to Montreal, Anne would be freed of all charges. It didn’t really sink in with Jean that she doesn’t have a granddaughter named Anne, although she does have a stepdaughter by that name. She withdrew the money from her account and wired it through Western Union. The next day, she phoned her stepdaughter Anne to see if she made it back home OK. That’s when Jean found out she had been scammed; Anne

had never been to Montreal nor had she been in jail. “I just can’t forgive myself for being so stupid,� Jean says.

I just knew Anne was in trouble, and I was there to help Scam victim trouble, and I was here to help.� Jean was saving the money in her account to buy hearing aids and to replace a tooth she had lost. A local business, Fraser Valley Hearing Services, found out about her plight, and has now offered to give her a hearing assessment and provide top-of-the-line hearing aids at no cost to Jean. Manager Mike Keller said staff were moved by her story because they have relatives

who have received similar calls, although they did not lose any money. He said the gesture fits in well with Fraser Valley Hearing Services’ community outreach program. Jean was thrilled to hear the good news. “That’s absolutely marvelous!� she said. Meanwhile, Abbotsford Police spokesman Ian MacDonald said the “grandparents scam� continues to flourish in Abbotsford. Jean was one of four seniors scammed of funds in July, and police received seven complaints in a recent two-week period. None of those people transferred any money. In a couple of cases, they tried to withdraw money from their accounts, but alert bank tellers were able to question them about the withdrawals and then advise them they were being scammed. In another case, an employee at a wire transfer service was able to halt a transaction that was connected to the scam. MacDonald said police believe the fraudsters obtain information about family members through social networking sites such as Facebook.

Have a Rice Day

Event fights hunger

An event that encourages people to substitute one of their meals with a bowl of rice will raise funds to help fight local and global hunger. Have a Rice Day takes place Saturday, Nov. 20 and involves the public purchasing a button pin for $5 to support Abbotsford’s Hunger Response International (HRI). Having a meal of only rice will help participants identify with people around the world who don’t have enough food to eat, says HRI director Lorri Sawatsky.

HRI funds initiatives such as the Rice Raiser campaign, which collects rice and other food items for local needs, as well as funds to help feed people around the world. The buttons are available on the website haveariceday.ca, the HRI office at 34368 Manfacturers Way, the FH Canada office at 31741 Peardonville Rd., Prospera Credit Union branches, and House of James. For more information, visit riceraiser.org or call 604-308-1391. Five more Have a Rice Day events are scheduled this year and in 2011. They take place Dec. 10, March 22, April 7, May 15 and Aug. 19.

UNIVERSITY LECTURE SERIES Join us for a free lecture series profiling UFV faculty and their research.

What does social justice mean to the university?

FCC Drive Away Hunger

Dr. Adrienne Chan, School of Social Work and Human Services Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 7 pm, B101, Abbotsford campus Dr. Chan’s broad research goal is to identify how social justice is conceptualized and implemented through policy and practice. Most universities in Canada appear to have articulated the basic ‘pillars’ of social justice but there are continuing problems with exclusionary and discriminatory practices on campus. Policies and practices that are consistent with social justice principles include those that facilitate access, equity, and the elimination of barriers to participation in education. These terms are often simple to say and difficult to exhibit in practice.

Thanks a million Canada (1.7 million, actually) Thanks to the generosity of our customers, partners and community volunteers, there are fewer empty plates this fall. Together we raised 1.7 million pounds of food for food banks across the country. Thanks to you, this year’s FCC Drive Away Hunger is another success.

SAVE THE DATE! The next lecture in our series is Understanding the timing and nature of climatically-driven landscape change in western Canada by reading the landscape’s solar birth certificate. Dr. Olav Lian will be speaking on Wednesday, Jan. 26 at 4 pm, Room B121 — UFV Abbotsford campus

ASIA students rehearse a dance to be performed during Remembrance Day at the school and at The Reach during the Arts and Peace Festival.

Students lend creativity to Arts and Peace Festival Annual event will feature exhibit at The Reach, beginning today Kerrie-Ann SCHOENIT Abbotsford News

Students from the Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts will be honouring fallen Canadian soldiers next week in an exhibit at The Reach Gallery Museum. It will feature a collection of artwork reflecting the themes of remembrance, service and peace. In addition to the visual display, students will stage a performance incorporating dance, music, drama and readings at the exhibit reception. “We do a lot of theme-based learning and we try to make things applicable to the real world,” said school principal John Fultz. “In that sense, this project fits beautifully into our theme for the year which is on service learning and social development. Giving to the greater community is something that our school wants to reflect.” The Reach exhibit is part of the annual Fraser Valley Arts and Peace Festival, which uses the medium of arts to promote non-violence and advocate alternatives to war. The theme this year is “To Remember is to Work For Peace.”

The festival also includes an art gallery at Columbia Bible College, documentary film night, story telling evenings, concerts, coffeehouses, and a Vesper service. “It’s a call to remember all who are impacted by war and violence. It doesn’t just impact our armed forces,” said Jon Nofziger, peace education coordinator for the Mennonite Central Committee. “We believe this will take the discussion out to a larger segment of the community and not just keep it in-house.” The festival is sponsored by the Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts, Columbia Bible College, Emmanuel Mennonite Church, Langley Mennonite Fellowship, The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford and the Mennonite Central Committee. For a complete schedule of events and information visit bc.mcc.org/artsand-peace-festival. The free exhibit at The Reach is open Nov. 9-10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Nov. 11 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A reception with student performances and storytelling by Weldon Nisly will take place from 7-9 p.m. on Nov. 10.

Cascades’ historic Canada West title is surreal, but not surprising Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

In the wake of the University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team’s stunning victory over UBC in the Canada West championship game in Edmonton on Sunday, all the elements of a classic Cinderella story were present and accounted for. Consider the following. Q In four previous Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) campaigns, the Cascades women hadn’t played – let alone won – a single playoff game. Q This season, they had just one Canada West all-star – secondteam defender Lyndsay Munro. Q The program had never earned a mention in the CIS top 10 rankings – not even this season, after finishing third in the conference with an 8-5-1 record. But float the Cascades-asCinderella notion to UFV head coach Rob Giesbrecht, and he politely but firmly shoots it down. “If others want to classify it as that, that’s great,” the first-year UFV bench boss said. “We set a goal we thought was attainable, and we got after it. “We believe when we’re playing our style, we’re very difficult to play against. Our girls wanted it bad, and in soccer, that’s sometimes the deciding factor.” The Cascades’ run to the title was thick with drama. In Saturday’s semifinal, UFV took down the two-time defending national champion Trinity Western Spartans 3-2 in game that went to penalty kicks. Danika Snook and Ellen Kuyer scored for the Cascades in regulation, with Danielle Schmidt setting up both goals. The penalty shootout went seven rounds – UFV’s Danielle de Bruin converted what turned out to be the

That win punched the Cascades’ ticket to the CIS national championship tournament – the first such berth for any UFV team. They made more history on Sunday, blanking UBC 2-0 behind second-half goals from Kuyer and Chelsea Steffen to clinch the school’s first Canada West crown. “It’s surreal right now, really,” said Munro, one of three fifthyear seniors along with Roxanne

Snook and Selina Miller who have been around since Day 1 of the Cascades’ CIS tenure. “I’d always been on those teams that got so close but couldn’t finish it off. But this year, it all came together. “It just makes every minute of it worth it, really. We were part of a building process, and it’s just amazing.” The Cascades went 5-0-1 against traditional Canada West powerhouses TWU and UBC this season, after going 0-10-6 over the previous four seasons combined.

“It’s an honour to lead this group,” Giesbrecht said. “When they’re playing like warriors, they’re tough to deal with.” The Cascades continue their improbable journey this week, as they fly to Charlottetown for CIS nationals at the University of Prince Edward Island. They open against the Quebec silver medallist Laval Rouge et Or on Thursday at 10 a.m. Pacific time. “We need to keep doing what we’re doing – putting our whole hearts out there,” said Cascades captain Megan Webster.

Schmidt, Canada bound for World Cup Sophie Schmidt of Abbotsford helped the Canadian national women’s soccer team book its ticket to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany next summer. Schmidt, 22, started at centre back in Canada’s 4-0 win over Costa Rica in the semifinals of the CONCACAF qualifying tournament in Cancun, Mexico on Friday. The victory put the Canadians into Monday’s final against host Mexico, but more imSCHMIDT portantly, it sealed Canada’s fifth consecutive World Cup berth. Friday’s game was scoreless at the half, but Canada erupted for three goals in a 13-minute span after the break and tacked on a fourth goal in added time. Josée Bélanger opened the scoring in the 62nd minute, and Jonelle Filigno and Christine Sinclair put the game out of reach shortly thereafter. An own goal by Mexico’s Daniela Cruz completed the scoring. Schmidt, who plays NCAA Div. 1 soccer for the University of Portland Pilots, already has a FIFA Women’s World Cup appearance on her resumé. She played in all three of Canada’s matches at the 2007 World Cup in China, and scored a goal.

Heat scorch Rampage

Be a deer. Volunteer.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat’s 4-1 victory over the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday was a triumph of style and substance. Coming off a dismal 5-1 defeat to the Rampage the previous evening, the Heat put on a dominant display before 2,652 appreciative patrons at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. The hosts deftly negotiated San Antonio’s forecheck, demonstrated offensive creativity, and generated enough scoring chances that the final score could easily have been more lopsided. The occasional bursts of flash and dazzle aside, Saturday’s victory was built on a bedrock of hard work. The Heat put on a kamikaze shot-blocking clinic, led by the likes of Carter Bancks, Greg Nemisz and Joe Piskula. They also dominated physically, with the blueline duo of Chris Breen and Josh Meyers setting the tone. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a team block as many shots as I did tonight,” Heat head coach Jim Playfair said afterward. “Maybe in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals against Tampa Bay (Playfair was an assistant coach with the Calgary Flames in 2004). “They took great pride in it, they expected it from one another, and they did a good job. A bunch of young kids, they were hungry to win.” After Friday’s odious outing, the Heat held a players-only meeting that featured a lot of personal challenges issued. Playfair also shook up his lineup in an effort to pump some life into the Heat. Rookie forwards Bryan Cameron and Mitch Wahl were healthy scratches. Inserted in their place were Andrew Carroll, recently recalled from the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL, and Giffen Nyren, a defenceman by trade who skated on the fourth forward line. Cam Cunning opened the scoring at 9:11 of the first period, and Nyren made it 2-0 less than two minutes later with the first goal of

Pope spoiled Leland Irving’s shutout bid at 9:15 of the third period, but Irving locked it down from that point. Nemisz wrapped up the scoring with an empty-netter with 1:18 remaining.

Blue technology is paving the way for a better planet

Sonata striving to be industry’s global eco-leader Hyundai Motor America is set to debut its 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged gasoline direct-injection (GDI) engine in the 2011 Sonata very shortly. With the addition of the allnew 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI engine, the new 2011 Sonata offers an unprecedented combination of segment-leading fuel efficiency and power – with a 33 mpg highway sepower. rating, and 274 horsepower. nata Remarkably, the Sonata 2.0T produces thesee industry-leading metrics on regular fuel…premium fuel is not required. The new Sonata is the first Hyundai vehicle to have bothh d GDI technology and a turbocharger. By the 4/7 end of Hyundai’s 24/7 version 2.0 product initiative (seven new models in the next 24 months), four nameplates will be available with GDI or the combination of GDI and a turbocharger. Turbocharging and GDI are part of “Hyundai Blue Drive,” the company’s environmental initiative to continue industry leadership in fuel efficiency and sustainability.

“The Sonata 2.0T is a great example of what our Blue Drive product strategy is doing for consumers,” said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. “Think about it – more horsepower than any of our V6 competitors, with better gas mileage than any competitive 4-cylinder model. We’re not fans of compromising at Hyundai, and tthe Sonata really demonst demonstrates this aspect of b our business approach.” The 2.0-liter tu turbocharged G four-cylinder GDI e engine in the 2011 S Sonata produces 2 horsepower 274 at 6,000 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque from 1750-4500 rpm reg with regular fuel. The Sonata 2.0T will deliver 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. Hyundai’s turbocharged engine features a twin-scroll turbocharger that when combined with the GDI system results in instantaneous power delivery. Twinscroll turbochargers have traditionally been used on more expensive high performance engines, but as with GDI, Hyundai has chosen once again to

apply this efficient technology in high volume to its most popular model. Hyundai’s commitment to making the Sonata 2.0T extremely fuel efficient continues with a sixspeed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC manual control. Hyundai’s all-new six-speed automatic A6LF2 transaxle is another way the company is meeting its goals of improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. Shifts are silky smooth with an option of manual control through the SHIFTRONIC feature. Drivers can access the SHIFTRONIC feature by moving the gear selector into a separate gate. Pushing the selector forward or pulling it rearward will shift the transmission up or down sequentially, adding to driver control. Turbocharged Sonatas will also feature steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. A clear LCD readout on the instrument panel shows the gear being used. For the customer, the new sixspeed delivers a performance edge. The gearbox has no dipstick because it is filled with automatic transmission fluid that is good for the life of the vehicle under normal usage conditions, thereby reducing maintenance costs.

The next stage in Hyundai’s efficiency drive is the North American introduction of the Direct Hybrid Blue Drive system. The Sonata Hybrid will debut in winter 2010 with a powertrain entirely developed in-house by Hyundai that includes several technical firsts. These innovations allow the Sonata to provide performance and efficiency improvements not available in other hybrids.
