District of Kent councillor Ken Schwaerzle is the newest Corn King. Schwaerzle was crowned Saturday morning at the Agassiz Fall Fair, and joins a long line of local corn “royalty,” that includes Siegfried Bartel, Wade Whorly and (for the prior two years) Wiebe VanderWyk. The corn king (or queen) is decided on after rigorous scientific testing on corn and soil at local farms. For more coverage from this year’s fair, see page 8.

Corrections Canada has confirmed serial child killer Clifford Robert Olson is days away from dying of cancer. Known as the Beast of B.C., the 71-year-old Olson was transferred from a Quebec prison to a hospital in Laval earlier this week. CBC News reported his cancer has metastasized and he isn't expected to live more than a few days. Over several months from 1980-

81, Olson abducted, raped and murdered eight girls and three boys aged between nine and 18. Olson preyed on victims across the Lower Mainland and dumped bodies in remote areas from Chilliwack to Whistler. The first victim, 12-year-old Christine Weller, was abducted near her Surrey home while riding her bike in November of 1980. Her body was found on Christmas Day, strangled and stabbed. Three others were also picked

up in Surrey – 13-year-old Colleen Daignault, 16-year-old Sandra Lynn Wolfsteiner and nine-year-old Simon Partington. Daryn Johnsrude, 16, Judy Kozma, 14, and Raymond King Jr., 15, all vanished from New Westminster. Ada Anita Court, 13, and Sigrun Arnd, 18, were picked up in Coquitlam. Louise Chartand, 17, was picked up walking in Maple Ridge and Terry Lyn Carson, 15, was found strangled in Chilliwack.

During his murder spree Olson lived in an apartment in Surrey on King George Highway and then later at one in Coquitlam. Olson was arrested near Ucluelet in the summer of 1981 in a rented car with two female hitchhikers. The 1982 deal securing Olson's guilty plea – and sparing families of his victims the pain of a long trial – included a controversial $100,000 trust fund payment to his wife and infant son.

New nursing program sends off first grads For the past year and a half, several women have been studying nursing through a unique program at Seabird Island. They were the first students through an 18-month Practical Nursing program offered through a partnership between several organizations.

And on September 8, those 10 women celebrated their graduation, with a ceremony at Seabird Island’s gymnasium. The program was put on in partnership with Seabird Island Health, Fraser Health, Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, Vancouver Community College

and Sto:lo Aboriginal Skills & Employment Training. The graduates will be writing their licensing exam this month. Their education included 750 classroom hours, 16 weeks of practicum in long term and acute care facilities and 144 hours of preceptorship.

It's not often that you'll get a close-up look at counterfeit money, much less hold it and examine it. That will all change for those who take part in a CSI-style class led by the Agassiz RCMP. Sgt. Kevin Gibson, who took over just a few weeks ago at the detachment, believes the course will bring business owners, employees and other members of the public, the knowledge they need to combat fraud. He has invited in the Bank of Canada, who will be bringing in counterfeit Canadian and U.S. cash. The difference between

counterfeit and real money can be hard to distinguish without training, he says. Students of the CSI course will learn how to quickly identify any Canadian bill, by simply holding the banknote to a source of light. But it's not all about cash. The five night course will also include lessons in identifying illegal drugs and grow operations. One of the nights will even include a hands-on lesson in fingerprinting. Gibson says the students will hold a glass, take their own fingerprints, and then go about identifying themselves. The course is free to take, but

limited to 20 people and those who want to participate must pass security clearance. That shouldn't deter people from taking the course, he says. It's the same security clearance needed to do volunteer work at schools, and is easily done at the Agassiz RCMP detachment. Gibson is hoping the course will protect Agassiz and Harrison businesses from becoming victims of different types of fraud. The courses start on November 15 and will run Tuesdays and Thursdays for five sessions, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. To apply, phone Gibson at 604796-2211.

Olson denied parole in 2010 FROM 1

Olson led police to the undiscovered bodies of his victims. Outraged families felt Olson profited from his crimes. Prosecutors defended the arrangement as one that ensured he went to jail and did not run the real risk that he might be acquitted. Olson had been in and out of jail for decades of lesser offences before turning to sadistic sex crimes.

In recent years, fresh controversy surfaced when it was made public that Olson – along with other prisoners – was receiving in trust $1,170 a month in federal pension benefits while behind bars. The federal government vowed last year to strip federal inmates of old-age pensions while they're in jail. Benefits would resume on release if the change is enacted amid other justice system reforms. Olson's case also inspired

calls to eliminate the faint-hope clause that guaranteed him a parole hearing in 1997, after 15 years. He was denied – the parole board rated him a high risk to kill again – and Ottawa banned the clause's use by future serial killers. Olson was last denied parole in 2010 and said he would not re-apply. Families had dreaded having to fight his release every two years.

Streamkeepers focusing on Harrison beachfront Annual litter pickup needs volunteers Janne Perrin CONTRIBUTOR

It’s B.C. Rivers Day on Sunday, and this weekend, the Miami River Streamkeepers will once again host a Great Canadian Shoreline cleanup in Harrison Hot Springs. The public is invited to participate on Saturday, September 24. Last year, 47027 Canadians cleaned 98,071 kilos of litter from 2,235 kilometres of shoreline. The top five 2010 litter items were cigarette butts (227,830), food wrappers (83,660), plastic bags (55,880), caps and lids (55,443) and disposable cutlery and dishes (28,755). The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a national program. It is presented by Loblaw Companies Limited and is supported by The Home Depot Canada Foundation and Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project as national The Miami River Streamkeepers are hosting clean-up event in Harrison Hot Springs on Saturday.

There are strict rules governing the behaviour of prisoners at hearings, and Oughton broke one of them when he stood up and turned towards the small gallery where five of his victims were seated. It appeared that he was trying to make for the exit which would have brought him within feet of his victims. It took a prison guard, a parole officer and a Langley RCMP officer to subdue him. - with files from Robert Freeman, Chilliwack Progress

At the last minute, John Horace Oughton decided he didn't want a parole hearing. The man known as the "paper bag rapist" cancelled on Monday, Sept. 19, the day before he was scheduled to appear at the hearing. It isn't the first time he's had a last-minute change of mind. At one previous Oughton parole hearing, victims and their representatives made the trip to the Mountain Institution in Agassiz, only to discover the hearing would not proceed minutes before the start time. Oughton was declared a dan-

gerous offender in 1986, after he admitted to sexually assaulting more than 140 women and children during a 10-year rampage that included Burnaby, Langley and other Metro Vancouver communities. Under Canadian law, a person declared a dangerous offender is jailed with no release date but is entitled to a review of parole eligibility every two years. The 61-year-old former hot tub salesman was nicknamed the “paper bag rapist” for his habit of placing coverings over his face or the faces of his victims. Two of them were 11-year-olds from Langley. Oughton hasn’t participated in

Options for adult students Alt education free at Agassiz Centre for Education Jessica Peters

WIN

THE OBSERVER

There’s a lot of different reasons an adult would go back to school. But there are also many perceived obstacles that keep people from returning to the classroom. Agassiz Centre for Education’s administrator, Sandy Balascak, said that the most common question she hears from adults in the community is “how much is that course?” The answer is always the same, she said. Free. She’s hoping that message gets out to more adults in the community who may be tossing around the idea of getting their Grade 12, or even taking courses that could get them into post-secondary education. There are courses like science and math, English and even First Nations studies. “Every year, we encounter so many people who think they can not come to ACE or will have to pay large amounts for tuition,” she said. There are other concerns she hears, too, including: “I graduated so I can’t go back to a public school.” The Agassiz Centre for Education (ACE) is a ministry-funded public school, accepting both grads and non-grads. “While some institutions will charge for upgrading, ACE is a public school and provides Minis-

try funded courses, so there is no tuition,” Balascak said. “Adults can choose from a list of Adult Basic Education courses that include academics, computer studies, etc. As long as the residency requirements are met and the courses meet the Ministry standards, adults may qualify.” Another common concern is finding time to attend classes, while juggling family responsibilities and working. “We recognize that adults have busy lives and we can provide a flexible schedule,” Balascak said. “We can provide direct instruction for those who need or want it, but can also accommodate doing much of the work at home. We individualize programs and schedules to meet the needs of the student.”

There are even online options for certain programs, she added. Then there are those who feel they’ve gotten “too old” for education. But ACE has students everywhere from 19 to 55, with most adults finding it easier than they thought. And finally, there are people who studied outside of B.C., worried that their credits won’t transfer. Most often, they will, Balascak said. “You may be able to transfer some credits, and you can take the courses you need to make up the remainder of the credits,” she explained. For more information on how to register, phone 604-796-9496 or email Balascak at ace@sd78.bc.ca.

Bargain, but do it quietly

Opinion QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Will you vote in the upcoming civic electioin?

Teachers’ contract bargaining should not be a spectator sport with zealots cheering on their combatants like teens at an after-school fist fight. There are more adult ways to conduct negotiations than fear mongering, rabble rousing and putdowns. With school now underway, both sides in the B.C. public school teachers dispute should loudly pronounce their intentions to bargain in good faith and then duck under the cover of silence until there’s something worthwhile to report — like a settlement. The BC Teachers’ Federation and the BC Public School Employers’ Association have an opportunity to create a teachable moment for thousands of B.C. students by engaging in respectful negotiations. No doubt there are extreme challenges facing both sides in this dispute because the teachers are expected to live within the same “zero net” deal accepted by other public sector unions. With an arbitrator ruling that issues traditionally discussed at the provincial table should remain there, and class size and composition regulations left out of the discussion for now (the province has until next April to contemplate the implications of a Supreme Court ruling that struck down class size and composition regulations), both sides in the dispute have a very narrow range of concerns to deal with. One option is for both sides to bear down on a few key non-monetary items to obtain a short-term deal or stall for a year or more until the way is clear for a possible return to bargaining of class size and composition, wages and benefits. Complaints of unreasonable concessions or unrealistic demands are typical opening bargaining positions. With these volleys out of the way, it’s time for some serious bargaining. But, please, let’s do it quietly, and with the least disruption for students. – Black Press

Yes 37% No 62%

B.C. imports American-style politics B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated four-year terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level. Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty attacks on the NDP, launched an anti-John Cummins website. Absent a

policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.” I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001. This is almost as strange as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, that can really come back to bite you.

“Absent a policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems” Clark hired more political staff – Christy or Glen?

rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stickmen.) The U.S. tactic of going negative early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto. The website, canttrustcummins.ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gunwielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie. It was Reform BC that rose

Cummins defined himself as a Reform-Alliance-Conservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Good medical help on road to recovery Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! In the afternoon of Sunday Sept. 4, my husband, Gary who has always been strong, healthy and an avid walker, became severely disoriented after days of severe headaches and flu like symptoms. At 5:30 p.m., we called 911 and within 15 minutes two paramedics arrived from Hope. They transported us to Chilliwack General Hospital where the Emergency Room staff performed some tests including a CT Scan. The CT Scan revealed two large pools of blood which had accumulated in the brain cavity, likely the result of a fall suffered two months earlier. Realizing that Gary would require an evacuation of the subdural hematoma, they contacted a surgical team at the Royal Columbian hospital in New Westminster, who stood by, prepared to save Gary's life. Gary slipped into a coma as he was being rushed in for the surgery which took place immediately after his arrival at Royal Columbian.

An excellent surgical team led by Dr. Richard Chan were able to do the emergency repair work and by 3 a.m. Gary had been moved to the intensive care unit where he spent four hours before being moved to a semi-private room. He was released from the Royal Columbian on Sept. 13 and is well on his way to a full and complete recovery. He has begun going for short walks and is once more challenging the odd Sudoku puzzle. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to both paramedic teams for their quick and skilled response. All of the Chilliwack ER staff, Dr. Richard Chan and his top-notch surgical team, as well as the Royal Columbian ICU team and the excellent post-surgical nurses. Words are inadequate to express our gratitude to our awesome God for hearing and answering our prayers and putting Gary on the road to recovery. Thank you! Laura Friesen Harrison Mills

Liberals' rhetoric 'deceitful'

I am tired of reading articles by journalists who, like the BC Liberals, use the defeat of the HST as a means to confuse and scare British Columbians. Figures released by the BC Liberal Finance Ministry, and widely published in the press, suggest that the HST reversal means the province’s total debt is expected to reach $62.3 billion in the next three years. I don’t believe anything the Liberals say about the HST, and here is why: Before the May 2009 election, the BC Liberal government said it would not impose a harmonized sales tax. Upon implementation, former

Finance Minster Colin Hansen and ex-premier Gordon Campbell deflected criticism of the HST by claiming the tax would be "revenue neutral"; in other words, government revenue would not increase. Now, according to Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, government revenue from the HST is critical to the health of the BC economy. BC teachers are being told that the defeat of the HST means there is no extra money for the education system. We are simply asking for student learning conditions to be restored to previous levels: in 2002, the Liberals illegally stripped our contract of language that limited

the number of students, as well as the number of special needs students, in a class. We are also asking for a reasonable salary increase, with the expectation that our salary will be in line with the majority of our colleagues across the country. By hiding behind claims of an increased deficit, the BC Liberals are hoping to dupe the public. If we buy into the Liberal’s deceitful rhetoric, we allow them to undermine the funding of our social programs, all the time claiming to “put families first”. Lynne Marvell, President Fraser-Cascade Teachers’ Association

Whale tale sparks interest Your excellent "50 years ago" feature has revived my interest in Harrison Lake's whale visitors. I knew about the 1936

sightings but not the 1961 event. If anyone has more info or photos from 1961, I would be very grateful for them as

I'm really anxious to know if it was a grey whale or an Orca/ killer whale. John Allen

The September 10th weekend was a busy one in Hemlock Valley, starting off with the Hemlock Valley Fire Department’s “nontournament” golf tournament. Fire Chief Marty McKinney says the downturn in the economy seems to have affected the affordability of the annual Charity event as registration was down this year. The event was officially cancelled in August but those who had pre-registered asked for their tee-times to be held, as they wished to golf anyway. Through the kindness of the hearts of those who showed up to golf at the Sandpiper Course in Harrison Mills on Saturday Sept. 10, $400 was raised to help support the Deroche elementary school breakfast program. Sandpiper Golf Course kicked in free cart rentals and a food voucher for the Rivers Edge Restaurant in appreciation of the support of the players and their donations to the Deroche School Program. Some prizes were donated by Overtime Athletics, Southside Nissan

Hockey game benefits camp Fundraiser spurred on by death of Mission coach RCMP are hoping that a successful fundraising hockey game will become an annual event. On Saturday, Aug. 27, the Mission Icebreakers Junior Hockey Club faced off against the RCMP at the Mission Leisure Centre. The goal was to have a friendly game of hockey for a good cause, and in memory of Myron Berg. Berg was a fastball coach in Mission who died in December last year as a result of a car crash near Mission. Due to the success, the Icebreakers and the RCMP said they anticipate another game next year. The event was organized by Scott Kieler of the Mission Icebreakers, and James Klassen, Hope’s Staff Sergeant Suki Manj, Cst. Darren Rennie, and Cst. Matt Deschenes. RCMP members from Mission, Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope, Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Sec-

tion, Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, North Vancouver, an Auxilliary member from Hope, a member from the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Unit, and a spouse of a UFVRD member all participated. More than 350 people attended, and the proceeds raised from the game are going to Camp Luther in Mission, a summer camp for children.

The score of the game was not important, said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. And even though the Icebreakers may have had the upper hand advantage, it was a great community event. The Icebreakers really enjoyed themselves and the members who played against them had a lot of fun too. It was a clean and friendly game with no rough play, however the coach of

the Icebreakers, Wayne Stripp, told the RCMP team after the second period not to be afraid to give his players a little “push�. “A big thank you to all those who participated,� Hollingsworth said. “The RCMP players were very happy to dust off their skates and give up their time for such a worthwhile cause and have some fun too.� news@ahobserver.com

Community

Be prepared for election Community spirit Get to know the issues now, not November T ECHOES FROM THE PAST

There is no doubt, election time will soon be here. Just read the newspaper; voices are getting louder and rhetoric more aggressive. In the olden days, people debated in the marketplace, after church or in the neighborhoods — and it was not always peaceful. Nowadays, while debating is still being done in public places, it comes — through newspapers, radio, television and computer transmissions — into every household and to every person and it is more important than ever to stay cool. Likes or dislikes of the people who offer to serve inevitably play a part, though of course, they shouldn’t. To make intelligent decisions requires work. We have to educate ourselves and the sooner the better. Municipal elections are three-year terms, not enough time, perhaps, to achieve all one wants to achieve. Besides, there are usually projects that have

touched the hearts of the people. After many years of wishing and asking, the dream came true and it was in the nick of time. It was a dramatic decision with two councillors voting for it and two against it, so it was the mayor’s vote that sealed the deal. I almost forgot: a new bridge has been finished across the Meama River and residents, especially school children who live on the east side of Harrison Hot Springs have now a faster, safer way to the other side and the school. The Fred Hardy Bridge has been repaired and the tennis court in Spring Park resurfaced. And, I should mention our new logo and the new information signs at the corner of Lillooet and Hot Springs Road. Last, not least, two long-term bills have been paid off ten years ahead of time saving our community a lot of money in interest. Is there more? I will leave it up to you to find out.

AGASSIZ COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE

Local citizens took an active interest in clubs 50 Years Ago, 1961 • In the 1960’s local citizens took an active interest in running their community and participated in various clubs or organizations. And they took time for fun, too. The Fireside Group of the United Church gathered one evening in September for a hayride, as guests of the Women’s Auxiliary of the All Saints Anglican Church, followed by refreshments at the Anglican Church Hall. Muriel Farrant was the tractor driver. • Over 60 people attended the PTA meeting in the high school library. • An unemployed Chilliwack man decided to serve a month in jail rather than pay fines of $20 plus $15 for having no muffler, no flags and no flares on his truck. Explaining to the court and Magistrate A.M. Naismith that he was not working and the money was needed for his two

children, he insisted on serving the time, even though his wife had brought the money to the hearing. He spent one night in the Agassiz lock-up but next day his wife arrived to pay the fine with money from the truck’s owner. • Showing at the AGA Theatre in Agassiz was “Killers of Kilimanjaroâ€? starring Robert Taylor and Ann Aubrey. Price of admission was adults $.65, students $.50 and children $.25. In current news, the Agassiz Harrison Museum closes for the winter season Thanksgiving weekend. So if you want to find some unique gifts for Christmas, drop by the gift shop before then for a wide variety of local crafts at good prices. After October 8, there will still be someone working in the office during weekdays but appointments must be arranged in advance by phoning the museum at 604-796-3545.

Runners take on Cultus trails Solo or relay racing options available Last year, runners traveled from 17 cities, two provinces and one state to circumnavigate Cultus Lake on foot. This year, they’ll be back again for the Around The Lake Give’R Take 30 trail race, Saturday, Oct. 15. This is the ninth year for the exhilarating race that offers runners an escape from civi-

lization. One’s overall strength and mental toughness is put to the test. The 30-km course covers a combination of challenging single track trail, short stretches of pavement and sections of beautifully groomed park trails. There are three major hills on the course that add up to a gut wrenching total of 1,110m elevation gain

(3641 ft). The toughest of the hills is the last. It is not the longest, but the 440m (1,444ft) elevation climb near the end of the race tests your hard earned fitness to the limits. Four aid-stations are strategically placed around the race course. These stations support the no frills atmosphere of the race in that they allow

the runners to be free to run unburdened. All aid-stations are manned by very capable volunteers ready to give food, drink or aid to the runners. A few years ago the 16 km/14 km relay was added to the race. It has been very popular for those runners not interested in the longer solo 30 km and to those run-

ners in the development phase moving towards the longer trail runs. Race director Heather Hibberson said that the refinement for this year is in the area of timing. “Utilizing Champion Chip Timing provided by Race Headquarters will guarantee very accurate split times and finals times,” Hibberson says. Forty per cent of the entrants last year were from Chilliwack, with

The Fraser Valley Dragonboat Club will finish up its season soon, with an open paddle on Sunday in Harrison Lake. Paddlers from all of the club's teams will be mixed, in competitions ranging from a straight, 250 metre course to fun obstacles. The open paddle runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is the last time the club will have the boats in the water until the spring. The club's teams finished their season in strong positions at the Penticton Dragonboat Festival. The Crusanders finished in Comp B, placing them 9th overall out of 87 teams participating in Penticton. They posted the fastest club time in Penticton followed closely by fellow FVDBC teams, the Pi-

The FVDBC Mavericks team competed last weekend in San Francisco to end the 2011 season. All teams will be starting the hunt for new paddlers to add to their teams as well as the Fraser Valley Dragonboat Club in starting another new team.
