City remains ‘cool’ on getting back together By NATASHA JONES

Black Press Langley: One community, two governments. To the Langley Reunification Association, that means only one thing: taxpayers from both the Township and the City are unnecessarily paying twice for council members, staff and resources. For six months last year, the LRA set out to gauge interest in reunifying the two Langleys, which separated in 1955. They asked residents to sign a petition if they agreed to a request asking both councils to agree to an independent study that would explore the feasibility of reunification. The organizers were pleasantly surprised: 3,176 people who live in the City signed the petition, while 3,547 Township residents signed it. City council dismissed the petition before it had been completed, and decided to ignore it when it was formally presented in January. But on Feb. 9, only days after Township council expressed support for uniting the two jurisdictions, Langley Reunification Association president Rian Martin said that the City cannot ignore an issue that is gaining momentum in other areas of the Lower Mainland: there

$10,000 to grow food, skills Aldergrove Star

On Thursday, Feb. 9, representatives of VanCity presented St. Dunstan’s with a $10,000 grant that will expand the church’s “Garden-toTable” initiative. This unique church program enables community members to develop food and garden skills and enhance food security. Since April, St. Dunstan’s has been facilitating the weekly Garden-to-Table meal, at which community members garden, cook, and eat together. The VanCity grant enables this program to expand, offering several “Community Kitchen”

series of 20-week classes during which members learn food skills and cook a healthy meal together every week. In addition, the VanCity grant funds a garden facilitator who will teach gardening skills, coordinate volunteers in St. Dunstan’s Community Garden, and help people get started on their own gardening projects. Food grown in St. Dunstan’s Community Garden will go to community meals, those in need, and the Aldergrove Food Bank. Last April, St. Dunstan’s started the commuSEE: Page 3

are rumblings to make the City and District of North Vancouver one municipality, and merging the municipalities of Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody. The Township’s official position was given by Mayor Jack Froese on Feb. 6: “We respect that the City of Langley does not see the need to pursue a study on the issue at this time, therefore no action will be taken on our part.” Froese acknowledged that the Township is not opposed to a study. He stressed the need for the two Langleys to “continue working together in unity, to build on our relationship, and to share our strengths. By working with the City and other neighbouring municipalities, we can reduce redundancies, provide cost-effective services, and offer the best possible quality of life for all our residents.” He added: We are one community in spirit.” Martin was pleased with Froese’s words. “This is showing vision and courage in a very sensitive area between these two municipalities, and we are very pleased with the direction the Township has taken,” Martin said. The Langley Reunification Association’s board of directors is to meet in the next week or two to work on a strategy, he said.

Allied Windows in Aldergrove, a 65,000 square foot manufacturing facility with 175 employees, is being closed by Atis Group Inc., the Montreal-based window and door maker that bought it in 2007. The news was reported in a Montreal newspaper Feb. 8 and confirmed by an employee at the plant when Black Press phoned later the same day. “We just got the news,” the woman said, adding all queries could only be answered by the head office. A spokesman for Atis in Quebec did not immediately return phone calls from Black Press. The report that ran back east said Atis was closing the Allied plant “due to overcapacity.”

At the same time, Atis said it plans to spend $3 million to increase capacity at its Solarcan plant in Longueuil, at its Laflamme division in Quebec City and its Phoenix Glass unit in Vancouver. The Allied website said the firm “has been manufacturing and serving Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the Okanagan, and the Fraser Valley window and door market for more than 35 years.” It was purchased by Atis in 2007 and moved into its current facility in 2008. According to an online corporate profile that does not report exact financials, only a range of profits, Allied’s annual sales were somewhere between $10 and $25 million, with export sales somewhere between $1-$5 million.

New year brings major changes at the zoo Aldergrove Star

The Greater Vancouver Zoo has grand plans and new management with the appointments of managing director Thomas Jung and general manager Jody Henderson. Thomas Jung is an architectural/industrial design engineer with many years experience designing complex buildings, as well as extensive knowledge in the mechanical and manufacturing processes. Jung, who was born and educated in the United States, has worked abroad, is a former Marine, speaks several languages and has been living in Canada for the last nine years. He has a B.S. in mechanical engineering, masters in architectural engineering and is a professional engineer. His primary focus will be the future planning, development and growth of the Greater Vancouver Zoo. “My lifelong dream is building a natural history museum for everyone to enjoy and learn from. I always have had a love for all animals, so the zoo is a natural fit for me,” said Jung. Jody Henderson has spent

the majority of her career involved in the tourism industry and is very active in the volunteer community. She has travelled extensively, been exposed to a variety of cultures and languages, and her work experiences include working onboard cruise lines, hotel sales, corporate travel sales, fundraising, special events for a variety of non-profit organizations and most recently the 2010 Winter Olympics. Henderson was drawn to the zoo 10 years ago as a volunteer due to her passion for animals. After four years she was hired as the marketing & communications manager. Going forward with her promotion to the general manager, her primary focus will be on all public relations for the Greater Vancouver Zoo, such as continuing to build solid personal relationships in the local community, with the media, tourism associations and a variety of business organizations. “Everyone who works at the zoo is here because of their love of animals. Our personal desire is to inspire our guests

The Garden-to-Table weekly gathering does several things simultaneously. It offers food support, social support, and skills support, as well as enhancing food security and raising environmental awareness. In addition, it’s fun. If a person is hungry, they can come and get a delicious free meal — and often take some home with them. If a person wants to connect and contribute, they can find a positive outlet. Everyone is learning skills, such as gardening, composting, food preparation, food safety, as well as connecting with people from different backgrounds. “We believe that everyone has needs, and everyone has gifts to contribute. Garden-to-Table is a place where people can bring both their needs and their gifts, where we are ‘growing together,’”

said spokesperson Christina Ray. “Although Garden-to-Table emerges from our Christian understanding of what we are to be doing in the world, it is not a ‘religious’ program. We are open to people from every background. So far, we have hosted seniors, those with disabilities, and young people of all ages.” Garden-to-Table is supported by local merchants and organizations, including the Aldergrove Rotary Club, the Organic Farm Connection, Lotusland Vineyards, Milsean’s, Langley Environmental Partners (LEPS), Langley Costco, and the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster. Everyone is welcome to attend the weekly Garden-to-Table meal, every Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 3025 - 264 St., Aldergrove. In the spring, watch for the new Community Gardening programming and the Community Kitchen series. For more information, call St. Dunstan’s at 604-856-5393.

ity at the Greater Vancouver Zoo this year including going through their accreditation process, which entails a complete inspection by the Canadian Association of Zoo

& Aquariums (CAZA). The CAZA accreditation process is “a publicly recognized symbol signifying excellence in, and commitment to, collection management, veterinary care,

ethics, physical facilities, staffing, conservation, education, safety and security, finance, and supportive bodies.” In order to maintain the CAZA accreditation, zoos or aquariums must go through a rigorous inspection every five years and plenty of preparation needs to be carried out before the inspection is completed. The zoo is also currently in the process of building a new Animal Care Centre. The new building will house the zoo’s animal quarantine for new arrivals, a hospital for the treatment of sick and injured animals and minor surgery and commissary facilities for food preparation and nutrition. The new facility will incorporate advanced technology that will enable more on-site treatment of animals with speed and accuracy, which will reduce stress on the animals and staff alike. To learn more about the zoo visit: www.gvzoo.com or come visit in person. Since 1970 the zoo has been dedicated to conservation, preservation and protection of endangered species.

Police net snares 200 Black Press

A team of 11 officers from Langley RCMP’s traffic section and the Langley-based Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit set up a series of check-stops throughout Langley and Aldergrove on Friday, Feb. 10. Using plainclothes spotters and unmarked police cars, the officers’ net snared dozens of motorists who violated basic rules of the road. Police issued 200 tickets and 30 written warnings for a number of infractions, the majority of them for failing to wear a seat belt. Of the 200 motorists ticketed, 85 were not wearing their seat belts; 51 tickets were issued to motorists who were using their cellphones while driving. Police were shocked at the

number of violators they pulled over. “Shockingly, motorists continue to blatantly disobey a more than three decade old law that is proven to save lives and minimize injuries as a result of collisions,” said Cpl. Holly Marks who speaks for Langley RCMP. “It’s simple. Make it part of your routine each and every time you enter your vehicle: Keys in the ignition, start vehicle, seatbelt. Check your passengers. The vehicle must not move until everyone is buckled in. In year’s past, approximately one third of all fatalities were the result of seatbelt non-compliance.” Driving while distracted by cellphones contributes to 45 per cent of vehicle crashes in the Lower Mainland every year, said Marks.

Noting that most cellphone contracts include voicemail, Marks said that “this is a service you already pay for, so why not get your money’s worth. If you are driving, let it go to voicemail.” Ignoring the law could result in a serious collision, she said, adding that drivers caught breaking the law by using a cellphone or texting as they drive face a $167 fine. Drivers caught texting or emailing, even when they have stopped at a traffic light or stop sign, may receive three penalty points in addition to the fine. Marks said that the law allows drivers to use a Bluetooth device as long as it is voice activated or requires only one touch to initiate, accept or end a call. Learner drivers are not allowed to use this device, Marks added.

Gerry Hay Navy veteran passes away at 90 Gerry Hay, who grew up in this area and served in the navy in the Second World War, died on Dec. 25. He was 90. He grew up in Mount Lehman and Aldergrove, and attended Langley High School. Together with other students at high school, he joined the town “broomstick army,” a volunteer militia unit under command of First World War Major Archie Payne. He had an interest in stationary engineering and thought that joining the military would provide him with the ability to learn that trade. His parents objected, however, so he did not do so until after the war began. After training in Langley and North Vancouver, he was called up to join the navy. He was sent to Halifax in 1941 after completing basic training, and was initially a stoker aboard HMCS Saskatoon, one of Canada’s fleet of corvettes. Because of the work he did, he had little sense of the battle going on above him in the fierce and ongoing Battle of the Atlantic. He was below decks keeping the ship operating. “As a stoker, you didn’t know where you were,” he said. Historian Warren Sommer, who

wrote Hay’s story, concluded his Nov. 10 article in this way: “Known in his youth as “little Gerry Hay,” he seems anything but the stereotypical image of a warrior. But Gerry is precisely the sort of man on whom the Allied victory ultimately depended: quietly courageous, dutiful and determined; an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances. “It was men like Gerry who safeguarded the North Atlantic, preserved Britain’s freedom, enabled the Normandy invasion, and helped to secure the Allies’ final victory.” He remained in the navy until 1947, rising to the rank of stoker petty officer. After the war, Hay found employment as one of the original staff members at Langley Memorial Hospital, when it opened in 1948. He worked at the hospital in engineering and maintenance for 38 years, retiring in 1986. He was chief engineer from 1958 on. “He was very well thought of by staff and management, and was chief engineer for many years,” said Doris Riedweg, a longtime LMH colleague and author of the history The Hospital on The Hill. He is survived by his wife Reta. No service was held, at his request.

It’s inevitable that residents in Langley Township will pay higher property taxes this year, but they have an opportunity to influence the bottom line at two budget open houses. These will be held on Monday, Feb. 27 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., and on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Both open houses will be held

boost police and fire services, and an extra 0.5 per cent for road paving. The budget is contained in the five-year financial plan, which had originally contemplated a property tax increase of 3.95 per cent. If all segments are approved, taxes will rise by 3.20 per cent. By comparison, the owner of a single family dwelling in Langley City will face a tax increase of 2.77 per cent.

Certified coaches ‘inspire’ at BC Games Aldergrove Star

Coaches can sometimes be the unsung heroes of athletic success. The images we see in the media are of gold-medal-winning athletes standing on podiums with their coach nowhere to be seen. But almost without fail, athletes will credit their coach for their success ahead of anyone else. Coaches lead and inspire athletes from community programs to the Olympic and Paralympic podiums. At the BC Games, coach education and training is a priority with all coaches at the Games requiring certification from the National Coaching Certification Program. Coaches BC is the provincial organization responsible for coaching education programs and the ongoing support and development of coaches. “A coach’s preparation for the BC Games, or any other competitive environment, is just as important as an athlete’s preparation,” says Coaches BC Executive Director Gord May. “Every successful athlete has been trained by someone who has taken the time to learn about the technical aspects of their sport and how to prepare their athletes both mentally and physically. Excellence will come about when you have the right tools and use them the right way.” The Provincial Sport Organizations involved in the BC Winter and BC Summer Games have demonstrated that they are committed to coach development throughout the province. Many sports utilize the BC Games as a unique opportunity for coach mentorship and training. Karate BC developed a junior coach mentorship program as part of the BC Winter Games where youth coaches have the opportunity to work with a certified adult coach. Six coaches ranging in age from 15 to 18 years old will be part of the program at the 2012 BC Winter Games. “The BC Games is an ideal way of furthering (development of) our

Laura Watson (at right), Technical Director with Coaches BC and ringette coach, says the BC Games experience will be invaluable for apprentice coaches. young athletes into future coaches,” says Fernando Correia, the Duncanbased Provincial Advisor for Karate BC. “I am excited about our new program and I know that our junior coaches are looking forward to attending the BC Winter Games and having the opportunity to develop new skills under the tutelage of some of Karate BC’s best coaches.” Another successful mentorship program developed by the BC Games Society, Coaches BC and Promotion Plus, supports the education of female coaches. For Laura Watson, Technical Director with Coaches BC and ringette coach, this has been a terrific opportunity for both her and her apprentice coach. “As I started out in coaching I wish that I had had an opportunity to study from a seasoned coach. It would have provided me with the opportunity to see how an effective coach really operates,” she says. “The BC Games experience that we have for our apprentice coach is absolutely the best experience that we could ever offer someone.” The dedication and commitment of coaches around the province

strengthens the overall sport system and contributes to communities and social development. For many, coaching is a way of life. Gary Ricks, a Level 3 certified coach at Key City Gymnastics in Cranbrook, reflects on the impact of coaching on his life. “Coaching helps you take stock of where you are now in all aspects of your life and how that compares to where you would like to be,” he says. Over his 31-year coaching career, Ricks has been no stranger to the BC Winter Games having attended over 12 times. It will be a family affair this year at the BC Winter Games in Vernon as Ricks coaches the Kootenays Zone 1 team; his wife Michelle is the Provincial Advisor for Gymnastics and his niece Madysen will be a competing athlete. The BC Games is an important step in the life of a coach, just as it is for the life of an athlete. There will be 122 head coaches and 110 assistant coaches leading 1,148 athletes at the 2012 BC Winter Games, which run February 23-26 in Greater Vernon.

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark’s recent fanfare about developing a natural gas export industry in northern B.C. included a major change in electricity policy. Last year Clark’s government forced BC Hydro to trim its operations and keep its next two annual rate increases below four per cent. Part of the savings will come from redefining former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate strategy, which required BC Hydro to be selfsufficient in even low-water years, with no net electricity imports. The target is now self-sufficiency in average-water years, limiting expansion of independent power projects. It also means B.C. will import more gas-fired electricity in the coming years, and burn some of its own abundant gas to generate new power up north. North America finds itself floating on a sea of shale gas. Campbell’s plan entailed using B.C.’s big dams to stabilize and store power from new intermittent sources of hydro and wind, building the Site C dam on the Peace River and exporting clean energy at a premium in a carbon-priced North American market. Both the carbon market and the export market have evaporated. While B.C. was developing run-of-river to sell to California, the U.S. west coast built new capacity, much

Floating on a sea of gas

of it gas fired, after an electricity crisis that caused brownouts more than a decade ago. Today, Washington state producers are actually paying BC Hydro to take their excess power because they need to move it into the grid, and B.C. is the only place that can store it using dam capacity. NDP energy critic John Horgan is celebrating this change in BC Hydro policy. He says the government made a multi-billion-dollar miscalculation by assuming California’s electricity shortage would continue indefinitely, and surplus power would be profitable. He says independent power contracts are part of BC Hydro’s current financial problems, but political interference in planning is the bigger issue. Horgan would not endorse the Wilderness Committee’s call to cancel electricity purchase contracts BC Hydro has signed for more run-of-river developments. Additional projects are planned for the Upper Lillooet, Upper Toba and Harrison Rivers in southern B.C., and the Kokish River on northern Vancouver Island. Most are aboriginal partnerships. Energy Minister Rich Coleman told me no contracts will be cancelled, and he rejected my suggestion that BC Hydro could end up with too much power in the wrong places and at the wrong time

of year. BC Hydro can move power around as well as store it, and that ability will improve when the smart grid is completed. Independent power doesn’t end there. It shifts to northern B.C., where three liquefied natural gas projects will need output equivalent to two and a half Site C dams to operate. Coleman confirmed that at least one modern gas-fired power plant will be needed to develop LNG, which is expected to be in business before Site C could be built. That powerhouse will likely be built by the LNG developers, and used to back up new intermittent sources of offshore and land-based wind and any river or geothermal sites available along a new northwest power line. B.C. will likely have a second gas-fired power plant in the northeast corner, to supply the Horn River shale gas development and processing plant now underway. Coleman says that plant should be able to capture carbon dioxide and sequester it deep underground. Fort Nelson and points north will remain off the BC Hydro grid. Even with carbon capture in the northeast, Campbell’s greenhouse gas targets look to be the next part of his legacy to be abandoned.

Once upon a time, Langley Township and Langley City were one municipality. In fact, Langley is one of the oldest municipalities in the province. B.C. joined confederation in 1871 and the Township of Langley (including what is now the City of Langley) was incorporated only two years later in 1873. So what happened? Warren Sommer in his book Nothing Without Effort, A History of Langley, provides an excellent account of how the split came about. The story reads like your basic family feud between the country cousins and the city cousins. Grumbling between the two branches of the family over a lack of services in the growing community of Langley Prairie (now Langley City) started as early as 1922 and carried on into the ‘30s, but the war intervened, and family squabbles were put aside while the country mobilized to face a bigger threat. When that threat ended the squabbling resumed. Langley Prairie was still anxious to acquire urban amenities such as water, sewer and street lights, but the farmers of the Township were still stubbornly unwilling to help pay for them. To quote one of those farmers, “A bunch of those businessmen want streetlights, but want the farmers to pay for it.” By 1950 the two sides were deeply entrenched in their positions and patience was wearing thin. Acrimonious comments flew back and forth. Nonetheless it took another five years, a citizen’s petition, a special act of the Legislature, and intense lobbying on both sides, before the family was split in two. A referendum was held in 1955 and the City of Langley was born. There may have been some justification TALKIN’ ‘BOUT for that initial split. It may have provided OUR TOWN the City with the ability to address the issues of the day, but it didn’t come with- Hattie Hogeterp out a cost. There have been numerous instances where meeting the needs of the community as a whole have been complicated by having to deal with two separate municipal entities. One of the first problems involved delays in the building of Langley Hospital, and although the two communities have learned to work together, challenges continue to this day. Ironically, the last time I spoke with Doris Blair she commented on her husband Bill’s promise as Mayor of Langley Township, to ensure there would be a streetlight at every intersection. I’ve been checking this out as I drive around and I do believe he kept his promise. Along with the streetlights, many things have changed in Langley since 1955. Langley City is no longer the only urban centre and there are sewers, waterworks and streetlights throughout the Township of Langley. As is the case for most family feuds the original reasons for the fight have become irrelevant and forgotten, but the feud continues. Both communities, Langley Township and Langley City, are great places to live and the differences between the two are important mainly to the politically minded. I doubt most people notice the difference between living on the north or south side of 44th Ave, or in patronizing stores in the Township side or City side of Willowbrook Shopping Centre, and golfers at Newlands aren’t likely to notice when they cross from City greens to Township greens. Maybe it is time for the family to bury its differences and consider becoming one again. At the very least let’s have a look at what the advantages and disadvantages of re-unification might be. I expect there are advantages for both communities, but we don’t know. If we are to have a meaningful debate on this issue we need objective information. This sentiment is shared by almost 7,000 residents of the City and Township of Langley who signed a petition asking for an independent study to look at the advantages and disadvantages of re-unifying the family. The Township of Langley has voted to support such a study. The City has dismissed the request from over 3,000 of its citizens to do the same thing. Isn’t it time for the country cousins and the city cousins to start talking to each other about ending this particular family feud? If you are interested in this issue visit: www.onelangley.ca

Editor: The very first Langley-Aldergrove-Abbotsford Walk for Memories blew all expectations out of the water, and for this the volunteer organizers have so many good people to thank. The fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. was one of 24 Walks for Memories around the province on Sunday, Jan. 29. Pouring rain, gusting winds and a miserable chill in Aldergrove didn’t deter more than 200 people from turning out at the Athletic Park, where donations gradually rose to an amazing $42,000 and change. (The final total may be slightly higher.) This achievement — the fourthhighest total, behind only walks in Vancouver, Kamloops and Surrey/White Rock — shows what our caring community can do when inspired by a brave honoree,

Brenda Reddick, who at age 51 has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Brenda’s husband, Rick, is a Township assistant fire chief and firefighters rallied brilliantly to Brenda’s appeal. So also did some wonderful students and teachers from local schools, area businesses, families experiencing the ravages of dementia — and just “ordinary” individuals who heard about the fundraiser and wanted to help. Alzheimer’s and other dementia already affect more than 70,000 individuals and families in B.C. and, with baby-boomers entering their senior years, this toll, sadly, is likely to rise. As yet, there is no cure. However, thanks to the contributions of hundreds of caring Fraser Valley residents, there is now more money to support victims of dementia.

Thanks to the contributions of hundreds of caring Fraser Valley residents, there is now more money for research into dementia prevention and cure. Thanks to the contributions of hundreds of caring Fraser Valley residents, the dozens of students who volunteered so enthusiastically for this event may one day see a world without dementia. Thank you, Aldergrove, on behalf of the 2012 local Walk for Memories volunteer committee (Amery Ai, Colin Buckoke, Bruce Farquhar, Marilyn Fischer, Sue Hull, Karen Long, Thanh Ma, Susan O’Neill, Rose Puszka, Rob Ruggles, Christina Strong, Brian Zeiner), and other generous souls who gave their time and their energy to help create this event from scratch.

Thieves make off with precious memories Editor: On the afternoon of Jan. 25 our home in south Aldergrove was broken into by at least two people. Three doors were damaged and some items were stolen from the master bedroom, including two dark blue pillowcases which the thieves used to carry their loot. Along with some loose change the intruders made off with an antique leaf-shaped wooden dish which was divided to hold small items and a pair of Nikon digital binoculars, minus the box and lens covers. They also Editor: I am an owner of two dogs. To those of you who don’t pick up after

took a fair bit of jewellery, most of it not of high value but of sentimental value. These include several pairs of earrings, among which was a pair of small diamond earrings. Most of the earrings were on plastic mesh squares and contained within a cedar box about 6.5” square and 3” high. The lid of the box had a handmade embroidered top in sea foam green with tiny pearls. My cousin made that for me, making it special. Also stolen was a stainless steel “collar” necklace, along with several pendants that can be hung on it. Many of these pendants

So, should any lady out there have received a Valentine’s day gift that may resemble the items above, please know they are stolen and I will recognize them if I see you wearing them. I would like them returned, no questions asked. Perhaps they could be dropped off at the community policing station. Name withheld, Aldergrove plastic bags on sidewalks and trails, well, this make no sense at all. Debbie Sorenson, Aldergrove

Editor: Re: “Trolley bus testdrive a hit in Aldergrove” This gets the general idea in the air, although Vancouver Trolley Company has been running this product for years in the tourist industry. Also Hawaii and San Francisco run similar cars. They are an industry proven vehicle, and with the proper adaptation can be put on rails with dual bogies. Sometimes the dual system is acceptable where low rail speed and low traffic allows. That fits the Inturban line description between Langley (Freeway Bridge) and Abbotsford which has passed the plan in 2008 to serve its city. With the Liberals’ plan of public and private initiatives it fits both public and political wills. This will bring health costs down because there is no question that buses and streetcars have a unbeatable safety record. With a growing south Fraser Valley concourse, congestion will continue to run against the grain and train until we can connect that message with motorists. If this is the seed then lets grow a golf course, and improve the fairways and play the game not with golf carts, but with trains and trolleys.

Activities abound for Aldergrove’s seniors pasta! tuesday! Here we are into February -- where did January go? In any case, I want to wish all my faithful readers a great 2012 with nothing but good times for the next 11 months. I’ve had so many compliments and remarks about missing my column, and I do appreciate hearing from you. Aren’t we having the greatest weather? Never fear, we may yet get a few more dumps of snow and suffer a few more inconveniences before spring is really here. Things are going as usual at the OAP Hall: crib on Monday with as many as four tables, and 1 p.m. is starting time. Bridge is also played on

Friday evenings, and more players are welcome at both events. The art club meets on Wednesday afternoon, and Saturday afternoons are lively with old time music and a good crowd of dancers. On the fourth Sunday of each month we have our potluck dinner at 5 p.m., followed by a few games of card bingo. The food is great, the camaraderie is excellent. This month that date is Feb. 26; come with your dishes, cutlery and a goodie for the buffet table. Tuesday afternoons are for dancers and I’m sure they would welcome more couples.

Over at the Veterans and Seniors Club, our cook is providing excellent noon dinners with salads and entrees, desserts and tea or coffee, all for the meagre price of $6. After dinner we have crib on Tuesday, dominoes on Thursday, whist on Friday. Come along and enjoy the fare and games. I hope you didn’t forget your sweetie on Valentine’s day. You know how they say women’s chitchat is loud? Let me tell you, men are louder. My friend and I took in a hockey game on the big screen last week, but when the men moved in and started raving we had to leave and Maudie MacPherson watch the last period at home.

Canadian Collectors Roadshow

STAFF WRITER After very successful shows all over the Lower Mainland, The Roadshow is returning to Aldergrove. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewellery she was never going to wear anyways.

Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!” At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered

to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures.

an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior

Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their

original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them. A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

Aldergrove Kodiaks’ forward #27 Thomas Hardy scored twice against Mission Icebreakers’ keeper Scott Lapp but Lapp turned aside all other shots in a 3-2 win for Mission at Aldergrove Arena Feb. 8.

Kodiaks stalled but keep lead By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

A last minute push by the Mission Icebreakers has kept their playoff hopes alive, as the visitors pulled out a 3-2 win over the host Aldergrove Kodiaks, Feb. 8 at Aldergrove Arena. It was a good night for Kodiaks forward Thomas Hardy, who scored twice in the first period, to earn the game’s third star as well as a season total of 61 points for second place in league scoring. Assists came from Brandon Potomak and Colton Precourt at 21 seconds, and Precourt and Matthew Lloyd at 16:07. The Kodiaks outshot the Icebreakers 17-8 in the second period but it was scoreless, thanks to good work by Mission keeper Scott Lapp. It looked like it was going to be another win for the Kodiaks as keeper Ross Baadsvik held off an onslaught of shots, but Mission upped the pressure in the final seven minutes to blast three in for the win. Total game shots were 48-45 in favour of the Icebreakers. The Kodiaks still sit atop the Harold Brittain conference

with two more points than the Abbotsford Pilots, but Mission still has a long shot at overtaking the Ridge Meadows Flames for the fourth and final spot in the playoffs. With six games left in the regular season the Kodiaks are on track to beat their previous seasons for total points. Currently, the Kodiaks have 52 points after 38 games (2511-1-1), while the Pilots have 50 points after 38 games (24-12-2-0) and Port Moody Black Panthers have 25 points after 38 games ((1023-4-1). The Flames have 17 points after 37 games (8-28-1-0) and the Icebreakers are close behind at 15 points after 38 games (6-29-3-0). The Kodiaks faced the Tom Shaw conference and leagueleading Richmond Sockeyes (64 points after 38 games) Feb. 9 at Richmond Arena. The Kodiaks opened the scoring in the first period on a power play against the host Richmond Sockeyes and ended the second period with a shorthanded goal, but three power play goals for the Sockeyes in the third period sealed the 6-2 win for the Sockeyes. It was a chippy game but the Kodiaks only scored on one of eight power plays while the Sockeyes netted three for 13. The Sockeyes

also outshot the Kodiaks 42-27 that night, although the Kodiaks outshot the Sockeyes 14-10 in the third period. Kodiak Thomas Hardy scored on the power play at 2:24 in the first, assisted by Colton Precourt and Jordan Pughe, but the Sockeyes evened it up at 10:35. The Sockeyes netted two more in the second period, before Kodiak Stephen Ryan got the short-handed goal at 15:58, assisted by Ryan Procyshyn and Samuel Ramsay, to give the Sockeyes a 3-2 lead going into the third. The Kodiaks put in the effort in the third but three power play goals by the Sockeyes ended the game at 6-2. This week will be busy as the Kodiaks host the Flames on Feb. 15, travel to Abbotsford on Feb. 17 and to North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Feb. 18. The Wolf Pack comes to Aldergrove Arena on Feb. 20 for a make-up game, followed by another Kodiaks home game on Feb. 22 against the Panthers. The final regular season game for the Kodiaks is at Sungod Arena on Feb. 25 against the North Delta Devils.

Midgets to battle Whitehorse Black Press

Aldergrove’s Midget A1 hockey team has been invited to play an exhibition series in Whitehorse, Yukon. They leave Friday, Feb. 17 and return Sunday, Feb. 19. The Aldergrove Midget A1 Bruins, along with their coaches Scott and Kyle McCarthy and six chaperone parents are heading to Whitehorse, where have been invited to play a three-game exhibition series against the Cinderwood Midget Mustangs, Whitehorse’s AA Midget Rep team. The Whitehorse team has been very generous, donating $5,000 toward Aldergrove’s airfare, along with billeting the Bruins players with players’ families from the host team. The Mustangs have distributed 1,500 flyers in the community to get local fans out to the games. The Feb. 8 edition of the Yukon News reports that the vast majority of

the Cinderwood Mustangs will be playing on Yukon’s midget boys team in the Arctic Winter Games in Whitehorse next month. As part of the team’s preparation for the Games, the Mustangs will be hosting the Aldergrove Bruins. The team wants to see some local fans out. “It’s the Mustangs, but it’s a lot of the Arctic Games players, so it’s kind of a warm-up for the Arctic Games,” said a spokesman. “We want to get a lot of people in the stands to get used to playing in front of a bigger crowd. “It should be a real good series.” All three games will take place at Takhini Arena. More information can be found at mustangshockey.ca The Bruins have just come off a 6-3 win over Burnaby Midget A2 to advance to Round 3 of the Midget Tier 2 playoffs so they are hoping for a great series with Whitehorse.

Girls U11, U12 soccer tryouts in early March Aldergrove Star

Langley United Youth Soccer Association will be holding player evaluations in early March for girls born 2001 (U12) and 2002 (U11) who will compete in the soccer season starting in September. This evaluation is for the select Langley teams at these age groups. The U11 evaluations will be held on March 5 and 7 from 5:30

to 7 p.m. at Willoughby Turf while the U12 evaluations will be held on March 6 and 8 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., also at Willoughby. “Our U11 and U12 girls programs will mirror our highly respected boys program in terms of format and training programs that follow the CSA’s Long Term Player Development guidelines,” said Langley United president Betty Boucas.

“Girls will be placed into player pools with the opportunity to advance depending on performance, commitment and attendance. This format has been very well received by our boys and parents and we expect the girls will enjoy the challenge of developing their skills under our professional paid coaches,” adds Boucas. Once the season starts, play-

ers will train three times per week with a game on the weekend. All players interested are requested to complete the online registration at www.luysa.com and do need to attend both sessions for their age group. No registration fee is required.
