Multiple murder call was ‘hoax’ By DAN FERGUSON Black Press

The phone call came in around 11:30 Monday morning,from a male caller who claimed he’d killed several people and was holding several more hostage in a house in the 27100-block of 16 Avenue in Aldergrove. Langley RCMP cordoned off the area. Members of the Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team (ERT) moved in with police dog services. Paramedics were on standby. At first, no one responded to a police loud hailer.

Then a woman stepped outside around 12:38 p.m. and was arrested. There were no bodies or hostages inside the house, she told police, only her two teenage children. The call was a hoax. When the teens followed their mother outside, they were arrested for public mischief. Police are now investigating the possibility the family computer was hacked by the actual person who made the prank call. At the request of the family, HARRY HUNT PHOTO the computer has been seized Police moved in to surround an Aldergrove house Monday, July for examination by the RCMP 25, after a caller claimed he killed several people. It was a hoax that Tech Crimes Unit. may have been the result of computer hacking.

Mother Nature smiled on Aldergrove Fair Days with a glorious weekend of sun and the community turned out in record numbers to take in the family-oriented activities. A final count has not been done but fair president Robin McIntosh estimates the attendance was in the range of 7,500 over the three days. “It was a ‘record everything’ this year,” said fair spokesperson Karen Long. “We had so many comments from happy people that it felt like a community, safe, like a real fair should.” The fair started out Friday evening with a car show, and kicked off with a downtown parade Saturday morning, before the activities and special events took over at the fair grounds in the park next to the high school. The events included the 99th annual Aldergrove Agricultural Association fair competitions, held inside the Kinsmen Community Centre. Entries for these competition classes were up from previous years and organizers are already planning the fair’s centennial next year. The Aldergrove Agricultural Association’s Centennial trophy for top farmer was awarded to Alf and Sandee Krause of Krause Berry Farm this year.

Pair of U.S. seniors face gun smuggling charges By DAN FERGUSON Black Press

Two Americans are facing 15 weapons-related charges after they were caught at the Aldergrove border crossing on July 11 with five loaded handguns and a loaded shotgun. The Canada Border Services Agency (BCSA) said the travelers, 70-yearold Hugh Wayne Barr and 64-year-old Danny Ray Cross, were on their way to Alaska when inspectors discovered the cache of guns. The guns included an Old-West style six-shot revolver and a two-shot Derringer.

Barr and Cross were released July 13 after a Surrey Provincial Court judge ordered them each to post $50,000 bail. The charges against them including multiple counts of smuggling goods into Canada, unauthorized possession of a firearm and possessing a prohibited or restricted firearm and ammunition. Their next court appearance is set for Aug. 29. Visitors to Canada may temporarily import non-restricted firearms like hunting rifles and shotguns if they complete a Non-Resident Firearm Declaration, and have a valid purpose such as hunting.

The Langleys ‘by the numbers’ on the web Black Press

If you ever wondered whether Langley Township or Langley City gets more provincial government money, or which local judges have the biggest paycheques or anything else to do with where your provincial tax dollars are spent, there is now a website you can visit that may have the answers you seek. Last Tuesday, the provincial government launched DataBC. Anyone with a web browser and a spreadsheet program can now access information that, in some cases, used to require a formal Freedom Of Information (FOI) request to get. Now, instead of filling out an FOI form, visitors to http://www.data.gov. bc.ca/ can download reams of information, including material of interest to Langley residents. Like one spreadsheet file for B.C. government financial transfers that appears to show the smaller City collected more from the province than the larger Township did — just over $7 million for the city compared to just under $2 million for the Township. The difference is a $6.8 million grant to the City from the ministry of housing and social development. The biggest single local beneficiary of provincial government largesse is the

Langley School District, which received $149 million from the provincial ministry of education. Langley Christian School Society had to get by with $3.6 million. The Kwantlen First Nation of Fort Langley got a relatively modest $107,000 from the province compared to the $229,000 the Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services Society collected. The numbers also show that James Jardine, a judge in the Surrey courthouse (which also deals with Langley cases), is one of the best paid in the province, collecting just over $260,000 for the most recent fiscal year. Only three other judges in other B.C. provincial courts — and the provincial auditor general — were paid more in the category of “employees not appointed under the Public Service Act.” Premier Christy Clark said B.C. is the first Canadian province to launch an open data website. In a written statement published Tuesday, Clark said the DataBC site puts about 2,500 formerly separate “data sets” in one location. In March of this year, the Township of Langley added its own open document catalogue to the redesigned civic website.

Deadline nears for HST vote By TOM FLETCHER Black Press

VICTORIA – Elections BC is keeping its call centre open until midnight Friday, the deadline for B.C. residents to register and request a voting package for the harmonized sales tax referendum. The call centre at 1-800-6618683 has been operating from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to handle requests from people who didn’t receive their personalized voting package in the mail. That was extended to 10 p.m. Thursday and midnight Friday in an effort to handle the volume of requests. Elections BC has been kept busy with requests from people who weren’t registered as B.C. voters, have moved or otherwise had

incorrect information on the voters’ list, or lost their packages after delivery. A few of the three million voting packages mailed in recent weeks have had errors in printing or missing elements. All voters who contact the call centre up to the deadline will be registered, even if they are kept waiting on hold until after midnight, Elections BC spokesman Don Main says. Phone registration takes three to five minutes per caller. NDP MLA Maurine Karagianis sent a letter to Elections BC Thursday asking for faster response from the phone service. She said MLAs around the province are hearing from constituents that they can’t get through.

Karagianis also urged acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James to stop disqualifying ballot envelopes where voters have mixed up the numbers in their date of birth. To be eligible, each ballot must be received in an envelope that bears the signature and date of birth of the voter. After a labour dispute at Canada Post delayed distribution, Elections BC extended its deadline for receiving completed ballots until Aug. 5 at 4:30 p.m. Mail delivery takes between three and seven days, with longer delivery times for northern and remote locations. Ballots can also be dropped off at Service BC offices around the province.

Township looks into fraud hot-line By NATASHA JONES Black Press

Township officials are to quiz their counterparts in Ottawa about the Ontario city’s new fraud and waste hotline. Ottawa recently implemented the hotline on the advice of its auditors and, Township Councillor Kim Richter said, the line has been well received by residents and taxpayers. The Township is pursuing the potential for setting up its own hotline after Richter’s motion was endorsed by council on July 11.

Staff will explore the cost and who will manage the hotline. Ottawa’s fraud and waste hotline is intended to be used by Ottawa City Hall employees and the public but not elected officials and their staff, the Ottawa police or those who work at the city’s public libraries. Operated independently by a third party, the hotline’s information is collected by an independent company and passed on to the city’s auditors who review each case and investigate when warranted.

Claims of fraud or waste are laid anonymously by phone or email, and are kept confidential. Among the activities classified as fraud or waste are forgery and misappropriate of funds, misuse of city property, equipment, materials, records or time, and fraudulent claims of reimbursement of expenses. Others include misuse of cityowned hardware and software, unauthorized use of city property, and inappropriate manipulation or destruction of data. A report is expected in the autumn.

‘Smart meter’ fears spark complaints By NATASHA JONES Black Press

The modernization of B.C. Hydro’s metering system is intended to be safer, more reliable and cost effective than the current system, and reduce electricity theft. But Hydro’s smart meter technology may also be hazardous to health, polluting homes and the outdoors with environmental poison, a resident told Township council on Monday. Hydro anticipates that its conversation from manual meter reading to the new technology will be completed by 2012. Smart meters record consumption of electric energy in intervals of an hour or less and communicate that data remotely back to the utility for monitoring and billing purposes. The problem, Una St. Clair told council, is that the meters radiate microwave frequency day and night. Unlike cell phones, which expose only the head to non-ion-

izing radio-frequency radiation, smart meters expose the whole body to what the World Health Organization in May classified “as possibly carcinogenic to humans.” “This is changing across Europe,” St. Clair said, pointing to a Council of Europe resolution that calls for a reduction in human exposure to electromagnetic fields and microwave radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices. The resolution calls on the 47 member governments to impose a ban on mobile phones, DECT cordless phones, WiFi or wLAN systems in classrooms and schools. Councillor Jordan Bateman circulated a fact sheet from the provincial Ministry of Mines and Energy which endorses Smart meters and claims that WHO “has concluded that there is no evidence exposure to low level electromagnetic fields is harmful to human health.” “Have you spoken to Hydro?” Bateman asked St. Clair. “Consistently,” St. Clair replied,

adding that the company has told her that she if she wants her smart meter attached to a part of her property other than her house, she can expect to pay between $6,000 and $12,000. She said that the symptoms of distress in the body are sometimes exhibited before those of cancer appear. “I believe this is a human right, a democratic right (for people) to choose their own poisons in their homes,” she said to applause from the approximately 100 people in the gallery. She asked council to ask the provincial and federal ministers of health to place a moratorium on the installation of smart meters until an independent assessment is carried out and wired alternative solutions are provided at no cost to consumers. A majority of council agreed to her request. Bateman and Councillors Grant Ward and Mel Kositsky did not support writing the letter.

Harry Hunt is this year’s winner of the Hilda Reddick Award for his service as a volunteer to the community of Aldergrove. Harry and Betty Hunt settled in Aldergrove in the early ‘70s and initially operated a hog farm on their acreage in south Aldergrove. Here they raised their two children, Laura and Bob, and began their service to their children’s schools, sports teams and other youth activities. Harry had played both rugby and hockey in his youth and over the years he has coached and assisted various minor sports teams. Over the years he served as President of the Aldergrove Agricultural Association and was one of the early winners of the Centennial Award presented by the association for the top farmer of the area. Harry continues to be very passionate about finding Centennial Award recipients in the community and has always been involved in the

Aldergrove Agricultural Association’s Photography Exhibits at the Fair. When the hog industry collapsed in B.C., Harry and Betty sold off their livestock and Harry became a custodian for Langley School District, starting in Langley Secondary before retiring five years ago after many years as custodian at Aldergrove Secondary. Harry pursued his photography hobby before retirement, providing freelance photos for The Aldergrove Star and for the general public, which he continues to do in his retirement. Harry is always willing to go to events in town to take pictures of local people as well as to preserve our agricultural history by photographs of historic buildings before they are gone forever. At the Fair Days awards ceremony Rick Harkins from the Aldergrove Kodiaks thanked Harry on behalf of the junior B hockey club and all the sports teams in Aldergrove for his enthusiastic support over the past 40 years.

VICTORIA – The B.C. government has released its audited public accounts for what Bill Vander Zalm enthusiasts strain to depict as Year One of the Harmonized Sales Tax Apocalypse. So let’s survey this allegedly bleak landscape of shuttered hair salons and seniors hoarding pet food, waiting for Belgian bureaucrats to come calling for more. Retail sales increased 5.3 per cent in 2010. Growth has softened so far this year, but there’s no evidence it’s due to the HST. (Retail sales are mostly goods, which are mostly unaffected.) B.C.’s economy grew by four per cent, third in Canada behind those new northern tigers Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. We beat Alberta as well as have-not Ontario. The provincial deficit dropped by nearly a billion dollars, even though spending on government services continued its relentless rise with another billion-dollar increase. That’s four per cent spending growth, the same as the growth rate of the economy. But as usual, two thirds of it is health-care spending, growing closer to twice that fast. Hair salons? My barber voted No to Vander Zalm. His accounting is simpler, his price is still reasonable and customers aren’t generally prepared to start cutting their own hair. Restaurant association

head Ian Tostenson predicted thousands of restaurants would close because of HST, and then mused about running for premier. Fortunately, we were spared from both of these scenarios. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon put out some spin about how tight-fisted spending control brought the deficit down from the 10-figure range. Prudence, he called it. Prune juice is more like it. It was economic growth that paid the bills, with mills and mines opening and consumers spending. Former premier Bill Bennett’s observation still applies: B.C. is a small, open resource economy in a volatile world market. Commodity markets have strengthened to the point where even the rising Canadian dollar is being overcome. Expansion to Asia is proceeding, assisted by a longterm federal-provincial strategy that the NDP opposed. A skilled labour shortage already exists in the B.C. northeast and is forecast to spread across the province. The government’s latest labour market survey estimates that B.C. will be in a labour shortage by 2016, and there will be one million job openings by 2020. One third of these will come from economic growth, two thirds from retiring baby boomers. Unlike next year’s HST revenues, this prediction is relatively easy to make with precision.

Job growth does depend, however, on a competitive tax environment, with competition from Ontario and elsewhere. The public accounts also confirm what we found out last fall, that HST revenues have run ahead of expectations. HST haters like to claim the tax was promised to be revenue neutral. That finance ministry estimate was only for the first year, and it proved pessimistic. As with gasoline prices, external forces drown out B.C. tax adjustments in the short term. Currently it looks as if going back to the old provincial sales tax will cost the treasury about $600 million in revenue in each of the next few years. HST rate cuts are made up by economic growth. Or we can return to a 60-year-old retail sales tax developed for a post-war, preservice economy, and continue a B.C. political debate that revolves around 30-year-old socialist ideology. The deficit will immediately jump back up to the 10-digit range. So if your HST referendum envelope is still in the bottom of your recycling bin, you might consider fishing it out and casting a No vote. They have to be delivered to Elections BC by Aug. 5.

Memories of the highly successful Township of Langley 2010 BC Summer Games will live on in the community thanks to three financial legacies that will enhance sports and arts opportunities for years to come. Members of the BC Summer Games Legacy Committee appeared before Township Council on July 25 – the one-year anniversary of the Games – to announce that profits from event will be distributed between three organizations and projects. The Township of Langley 2010 BC Summer Games Legacy Committee was made up of Mayor Rick Green, Summer Games President Michael Jackstien, Vice-President Jamey Paterson, and Administrator Gordon Zacher, who were asked to distribute the surplus Games funds to benefit the community and serve as a lasting reminder of the event. “Thanks to community and business support and the dedication of many volunteers, the Township hosted one of the most successful Games ever. Now, one year later, we are seeing the substantial effort that went into this four-day event turned into a legacy that will benefit the community for years to come,” Jackstien said. “It is our privilege to conduct this final piece of Games business.” The Committee announced that KidsSport Langley will receive a $10,000 grant, Langley Arts Council will get $20,000, and $52,871 will be put towards construction of a new Willoughby Community Park (South) Field House. In July of 2010, thousands of athletes, officials, and visitors converged in the Township for the Games. The massive event was a huge success thanks to the efforts of volunteers and organizations and the financial and in-kind contributions made by local businesses. The Games came in under budget, and the net income is being shared throughout the community. KidsSport Langley, which was launched in the fall of 2010, breaks down barriers that prevent children from participating in sports by providing grants to local children between the ages of six and 18, allowing them to play in a sport season of their choice. The Summer Games legacy will help 50 children access sports opportunities by providing each of them with a $200 grant. The Langley Arts Council will leverage its $20,000 portion of the Legacy contribution into further funds through a unique art project that will extend throughout the entire community. “Horsing Around Langley” will see artists design and paint lifesized fibreglass horse statues that will be put on display throughout Langley. Smaller colt statues will be assigned to young artists in schools and youth groups. “Horsing Around Langley,” which was designed to enhance the community’s agricultural heritage, is expected to raise a significant amount of money when the statues are auctioned off, and the funds generated will be used to further arts and culture opportunities in Langley. More information will be forthcoming from the Langley Arts Council regarding this project. Another project benefitting from the BC Summer Games Legacy is the proposed field house that has been approved for Willoughby Community Park. The building will be constructed in partnership with Langley United Youth Soccer Association and other community partners. The facility will feature a concession, change rooms, washrooms, storage, and office space. The legacy funds will be put towards construction of the 2010 BC Summer Games Legacy Room, which will provide community meeting space for years to come. “It is truly appropriate that profits from the Games will help develop this facility in Willoughby Community Park, as it served as a hub for several of the Summer Games sports activities,” said Township of Langley Director of Recreation, Culture, and Parks David Leavers. Sand volleyball, field lacrosse, field hockey, mountain biking, and rugby competitions were all played in the park, which is adjacent to the new Langley Events Centre. The Township of Langley 2010 BC Summer Games also made numerous donations that were given to organizations throughout the community at the conclusion of the event. More than $11,500 worth of kitchen smallwares were purchased for use during the Games, then donated to Campbell Valley House, Christian Life Assembly, Friends of Langley Vineyard, Gateway of Hope, Langley Community Services, Langley Senior’s Resource Centre, Southgate Church, Wagner Hills Farm, and Ishtar Transition Housing Society. A new industrial dishwasher that was purchased for $7,970 for the Games remained at Langley Secondary School, and close to $20,770 worth of sports equipment was given to local sport organizations. More than 32,000 meals were prepared during the massive event, and to ensure no leftovers went to waste, unconsumed food was donated daily to both the Gateway of Hope and the Langley Food Bank, an estimated value of $20,000.

Pay attention, Township! Editor: Re: “Priorities don’t include Aldergrove,” Star Letters, July 21 I agree and also find that Aldergrove has not been a priority for years. I realize that Aldergrove Lake pool is run by Metro Vancouver but in my opinon that is no excuse for the lack of repairs to Aldergrove. I have been a resident of Aldergrove for 30 years and have watched it go down hill. What are our tax-paying dollars going towards? The taxes keep going up and we are getting less. Aldergrove pool is in need of replacement and they just keep patching it. Why is it that they can find the money to improve Langley but not Aldergrove? Have

you looked at our town, I mean really looked? It is an embarrassment; the weeds are out of control around the trees on the sidewalks, along the curb edges and the maridians. Fallen leaves and flowers from the trees are still scattered along the sidewalks and curbs. Why is this not cleaned up? We have a crack in our sidewalk in front of our house that could be a tripping hazzard but it won’t be repaired. The reason given is that the budget for sidewalk repair in Aldergrove has been pulled. Why? Don’t we pay enough taxes? Our taxes keep going up every year so what is the problem? I have put three calls in to a council member to discuss all of this and more but I have never got-

ten a call back. I am not surprised though. I am being ignored just like our town is being ignored. It is time for changes here, it is time to clean up this town and give us a pool and recreation centre like the one they were going to build. The excuse we got was it was too much money. Well, maybe we should be looking at where our money is going. Maybe we should be looking at how much our council members and Mayor are being paid. I think that a budget cut there is required. We need something in our town for families to do. We need the Township to clean up this town and make this town something we can once again be proud of. Chris Miller, Aldergrove

Going postal over lack of good service

Editor: I have a post office box in the Aldergrove postal station. I rented this box because the mail boxes on the street were constantly being broken into. I was expecting an envelope containing legal documents on July 4, 2011. The envelope had a tracking number and according to the Canada Post web site the envelope was ‘sucessfully delivered’ to the Aldergrove postal station on July 4. When I went to collect it from my mail box it wasn’t there and nobody knew where it was. I never did get this envelope. I had to have a duplicate legal document printed I think military veterans and serving and then signed again by a soldiers would especially take offence lawyer. as I do to a public statement like this Next, I contacted Canada and all that it implies.

Political retaliation claims ridiculous Editor: Re: “Anti-Green rally fizzles,” July 21, Aldergrove Star Are you kidding me! At this well organized rally Joe Zaccaria is quoted as saying “a lot of calls were received from people who told us that they support us but would not attend because they felt there would be retaliation from the few vocal supporters out there who think Rick Green can do no wrong” and “they are con-

cerned that mayor Green and a handful of his supporters would expose them to ridicule.” Please communicate to Mr.Zaccaria that these comments of his already expose him and the other six members of his group to substantial ridicule! More importantly his statement regarding intimidation has very dark implications that absolutely don’t apply in a free democracy like Canada.

Gathering

HARRY HUNT PHOTOS

Clockwise from top left: the Antique Tractor Pull event, Smith & Jones were among the musicians to take the main stage, Richard Frost and his golden oldie Chevy convertible were among the entries at the second annual Aldergrove Fair Days Show & Shine on Friday evening at the high school parking lot, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender performs his duties as judge of the Aldergrove Fair Days Chili Cookoff, and youngsters picked a premier spot in the shade to watch the Aldergrove Fair Parade.

Thank you . . . to the many hundreds of volunteers who were fundamental in bringing this event to the level of excellence we achieved. On behalf of the 35th Elders Gathering we would like to express our gratefulness to our Elders who attended all our planning meetings throughout the year with their knowledge and support. Our Core Planning Group, Coordinators and Volunteers, provided input and tireless commitment to the planning process, which lead to the success of the 35th Annual Elders Gathering. Their respectful participation was a success and welcomed over 5000 participants. The 35th Elders Gathering could not have taken place without our sponsors. We have built long lasting partnerships that will benefit the elders, their communities and all British Columbians for many years to come. Supporting Sponsor:

PINK SALMON

SALE

CKNW radio began broadcasting in 1944 from New Westminster, BC and it didn’t take long for the station to take hold in the community. That December station staff had the idea to purchase radios as Christmas gifts for the children living in the local orphanage, Loyal Protestant Home. Listeners wanted to help and soon donations began flooding the station. Thanks to their generous support, each winter CKNW was able to purchase gifts for the orphaned children. The CKNW Orphans’ Fund grew from these grassroots beginnings. The Loyal Protestant Home eventually closed its doors; but the CKNW Orphans’ Fund has continued giving children facing severe challenges a better chance. We See the Need The CKNW Orphans’ Fund receives funding applications for families with children in need and from children’s organizations who provide beneficial programs and services.

‘Greenfields’ preferred

Adult Toys & Lotions

By NATASHA JONES Black Press

Garrett James photo

Councillor Gayle Martin, chair of Metro Vancouver’s parks committee, along with Patricia Ross, FVRD board chair, Mission Mayor James Atebe, Township Mayor Rick Green, MP Mark Warawa, MLA Marc Dalton, MLA Randy Hawes, and Jim Bishop were at Derby Reach Regional Park Saturday for official opening of Derby Reach trail extension to 208 Street.

New Fraser trail celebrated Black Press

A new trail is now open at Derby Reach Regional Park that offers stunning views of mountains, farms and the Fraser River. “This is an opportunity for the public to explore lands that were set aside for the park,” said Gayle Martin, Metro Vancouver Parks Committee Chair. “This new 2.8 kilometre trail is part of a larger project to establish a new route for the Trans Canada trail from historic Fort Langley to the Golden Ears Bridge, a project we have undertaken in partnership with the Township of Langley and Trails BC as our demonstration project for the Experience the Fraser initiative.” Experience the Fraser is a partnership between the Province of British Columbia, Metro Vancouver, and the Fraser Valley Regional District to create a natural and cultural heritage corridor from Hope to the Salish Sea. The Township of Langley’s Fort-toFort Trail forms the first leg of the route

to the site of the original Fort Langley in Derby Reach Regional Park. Existing park trails take hikers and cyclists from there to the start of the new trail at Edgewater Bar. Interpretive displays offer an element of discovery along the new route to 208 Street, depicting various Experience the Fraser themes including recreation, agriculture, First Nations, fishing, environment and transportation. A rustic riverside picnic area along the trail at Muench Bar offers a gorgeous rest stop for hikers, cyclists, paddlers and boaters. A small ramp provides access from the river at high water; and at other times helps fishers and other recreationists to enjoy the beach. At this time, the Trans Canada Trail follows municipal roadway from the park at 208 Street until it joins the Golden Ears Bridge and other regional trails. Once this last trail segment is in place, the Experience the Fraser Demonstration Project will be complete.

Today’s Big Deal!

There are residential developments in Langley which attract attention for all the right reasons, and others that are featureless. The ones that stand out in a positive way are those with elements that respect the environment, offer sufficient green space and play areas for children, have ease of access for emergency vehicles, and conceal garbage bins appropriately. Then there are others which simply don’t fit the bill. As Langley’s greenfield development grows, it’s imperative that the Township learn from those that demonstrate excellence, and not repeat those which fail to excel, Councillor Kim Richter said. The rest of council disagreed, refusing to second her motion for a bus tour that would allow council, planning staff and developers to look at developments. ‘Greenfield’ is a term used to describe building on land, such as farms and forests, that has not been built on previously. ‘Brownfield’ refers to re-development, such as False Creek. After Richter’s notice of motion came up at council’s July 11 meeting was not seconded, she decided to arrange a tour anyway, calling it a field trip. It will take place on Tuesday, July 26. Accompanied by planning department head Ramin Seifi and administrator Mark Bakken, Richter said she wants the trip to see what makes some housing “outstanding” and what it is about others that raises concerns about sustainability, livability and serviceability.

Digging illegal ditches in Aldergrove results in fine By DAN FERGUSON Black Press

Two men who illegally dug up Howes Creek near 16 Avenue and 264 Street in Aldergrove have been fined $1,100 for violating the Fisheries Act. Shaminder Mallhi pleaded guilty to two counts of “harmful alteration of fish habitat� for excavating the creek to improve water flow through his property and was fined $1,000 for the Oct. 25, 2008 digging. Mallhi’s friend, Agyapal Grewal, was fined $100 after he was convicted of one count of excavating the creek. At Grewal’s Surrey Provincial Court trial in April, his lawyer

Nine youth from South Surrey, Cloverdale and Aldergrove will be leaving July 22 for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Rinkaby, Sweden. For two weeks, Zachary Dallas, Quinten Dreise, David Thompson, Liam Ross, Jules Ross, Parker Simpson, Liam Herring, Jessica McInnis and Derek Barker will be camping in an immense field surrounded by trees and woodlands with 38,000 other Scouts from around the world.

argued there was no proof the digging caused any damage to fish habitat. The prosecutor said no proof of actual harm was required, only evidence that the digging had been carried out. Judge James Jardine agreed with the prosecution, noting that the record of Grewal’s interview by a fisheries officer showed he knew the work would interfere with a fishery. While Grewal was not on the scene when the excavation work was carried out, the judge said Grewal arranged for the rental of an excavator and did not tell the operator of the machine about the fishery issue.

Fraser Health aims to keep elderly at home By JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Fraser Health is stepping up efforts to steer seniors away from costly hospital or long-term care beds if they can be supported and treated in their own homes. The health authority has hired five quick response case managers – based at Royal Columbian, Surrey Memorial, Burnaby, Abbotsford Regional and Peace Arch hospitals – to work with geriatric nurses to flag incoming patients at ERs who can instead be sent home with bolstered supports. That’s one of a series of initiatives underway collectively dubbed “Home is Right” – a broad effort to change the mindset of hospital officials, health care workers and families. “Home with appropriate supports – not hospital, not residential care – is the best place for seniors to manage their chronic conditions and live out their final days,” says Lynda Foley, Fraser Health’s executive director of home health and end of life care. Most seniors prefer to stay in their own homes, with their pets, belongings and family. They have what they need, can be more active and social, and they avoid the risks of hospital-borne infections. Parked in a wheelchair or stretcher in hospital, they can quickly lose muscle strength and typically take longer to recover. And hospitals will

simply hit a breaking point as the demographic bulge of seniors grows if the chronically ill elderly continue to be primarily handled by the acute care system. “We know that tsunami is coming at us,” Foley said. “If we don’t change the system, we’re not going to be able to sustain it into the future.” The trick is to deliver needed supports into homes. Foley said that strategic shift is underway and has been gaining momentum since January, when Fraser Health formally set home care as the first option to be considered for elderly patients who no longer need a hospital bed. She gives the example of an 85-year-old man who arrives at hospital with symptoms from his end-stage heart disease. He might not be admitted but instead diverted from the ER back home where whatever care is needed can be arranged. The quick response care manager who made that decision would actually accompany him home, check his medications, assess the situation and arrange follow up care by a family doctor, geriatrician and other support staff – coordinated by a community case manager. Other patients who must be admitted to hospital because of more serious symptoms can be stabilized and then shifted more quickly back to home if the necessary supports are there.

The shift to home has been talked about for years, but Foley says much more supports is now in place than in the

free, while in other cases patients pay fees based on income or are billed for supplies. Foley is ready for skeptics who may think the diverted seniors will end up under-treated in the name of saving the system money. “I believe the system has to step up and flex its muscle and show we can do what we want to do,” Foley said. Dr. Grace Park, medical director for Fraser’s home health program, says the redesign of services underway should ensure seniors feel supported and safe living at home. “Families often worry that their elderly loved one is too frail to live at home and should go to a residential care facility,” Park said. “They need confidence that adequate community and home support programs will be there and that their care will be coordinated by the health care team.” MORE RESOURCES More info at http:// www.fraserhealth.ca/ your_care/home_ health_services/

Derby Girls On a Roll

Canadians love a good story, they admire a gritty blue-collar attitude, and they respect a bona fide mane of hockey hair. Can it be any wonder, then, that a nation of golf fans fell in love with Adam Hadwin this week? Hadwin didn’t win the RBC Canadian Open, held at Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, but he won the crowd. The 23-year-old from Abbotsford was in contention all weekend en route to finishing in a fourth-place tie, two strokes behind American Sean O’Hair, who won in a playoff over Kris Blanks. It was a milestone finish for Hadwin, with many tangible benefits. His share of the $5.2 million purse was $228,800 – more than five times his previous careerhigh payday. He won the Rivermead Cup, emblematic of the top Canadian golfer in the Canadian Open field, for the second straight year (he tied for 37th in 2010). Hadwin also earned an exemption into the next PGA Tour event, the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia. But it felt like something even more special was happening – the launch of a charismatic new Canadian golf star. Everywhere at Shaughnessy on Sunday, folks were bruising their palms in support of Hadwin. He got a huge ovation every time he made his walk up to the green. He got a huge ovation when he knocked his tee shot to within two feet on the par-three 12th hole. He even got an ovation after emerging from a port-o-potty on the 13th. Then there was the applause coming up the 18th – an extended standing ovation from the fans in the bleachers that Hadwin said “sends chills down your spine.” “It’s a pretty neat feeling,” he said afterward. “It was really nice playing in front of a country today.” Hadwin, a second-year Canadian Tour pro playing just his third career PGA Tour event thanks to a sponsor’s exemption, found himself on the brink of history heading into Sunday’s final round, sitting one stroke back of leader Bo Van Pelt at four under par. No Canadian had won the national open championship since 1954, when Pat Fletcher did it. The front nine was a ragged stretch for Hadwin, though. He bogeyed the first and sixth holes, then four-putted on the eighth green for a gut-wrenching double-bogey. When his tee shot on 11 sliced way to the right, landing in the rough just off the adjacent 13th fairway, it looked like Hadwin’s dreams of winning were toast. But he chipped onto the 13th fairway, hit a ridiculous approach shot between the trees that landed back on the 11th green, then two-putted to limit the damage to a bogey. That recovery seemed to ignite Hadwin’s game. His tee shot on 12 stopped just shy of the hole, and he tapped in for his first birdie of the day. He followed that up with birdies on the next two holes, capping the stretch by

The trio of birdies got Hadwin back to within a stroke of the leaders at -2 for the tournament, but he would get no closer, parring the last four holes. Afterward, Hadwin was quick to note his day could have been even more memorable if he hadn’t stickhandled around the hole on the eighth green. But he said he was “extremely proud” of the way he rallied. “I kept telling myself that whole time that I wasn’t as bad as I was showing,” he said. “There were only a few times out there where I felt nervous, and to be honest, there weren’t many of them. “When I did feel nervous, I just talked myself into hitting a good shot.” If his wardrobe was any indication, Hadwin embraced the pressure of playing with the weight of a nation’s expectations on his shoulders. He wore a red shirt with a white cap and pants. “I was debating whether to wear it yesterday, being so high up (on the leaderboard),” Hadwin said with a chuckle. “But my girlfriend actually convinced me that I wasn’t going to play bad yesterday, and that I could wear it today.” Making the day even more special for Hadwin was the fact his younger brother Kyle was able to walk the course. Kyle, 20, has been battling Crohn’s disease, and he’s undergone five surgeries since last August. He was at Shaughnessy on Friday and Sunday, marking the first time he’s been able to watch Adam in person since last year’s Canadian Open. “I had to take yesterday off,” Kyle Hadwin said. “There was no way I would have made it three days in a row. But I needed to be here today. I needed to see this. “It was amazing. The front nine he struggled a little bit, but we all had faith and we knew he was going to have a good back nine. He made those three birdies in a row, and it was unbelievable watching coming in. The last thing I needed was a high heart rate, but he left one for me.” Hadwin said he’ll keep this week’s accomplishment in perspective. “You’re not going to build a career on one event,” he said. “If I just fold, people are going to look at me like a one-hit wonder. I don’t want that. I’ll just go back to the drawing board, and keep doing what I’m doing.”

It was a tale of two halves for Darren Wallace at the PGA’s RBC Canadian Open. On the back nine during the first and second rounds of last week’s event at Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, the 22-yearold from Langley played the tough course 3-under par. But it was the front nine on both the Thursday and Friday which did in the young golfer. Wallace shot those 18 holes 9-over par, a result which had him finish his 36 holes at 6-over par, missing the cut by two strokes. Wallace also played the 2004 Canadian Open as a 15-yearold — after becoming the youngest winner ever of the Canadian Amateur Championship.

for making it both a fun and successful season. Both players are training for their respective WHL camps, Burroughs with the Regina Pats, and Becker with the Medicine Hat Tigers. “Just working out every day, plus doing some running at the track,” Burroughs said about his preparations for hopefully landing a spot on the Pats’ blue-line as a 16-yearold. He is working out with Impact Hockey Development. Becker is training with TnT Hockey Performance Training. In addition to the all-star selection, Burroughs was invited by BC Hockey for next week’s ( July 24-27) male U17 provincial camp in Salmon Arm. He is one of 41 players selected to attend. Three other local hockey players have also been invited: defenceman Jordan Klimek of Langley, and Aldergrove’s Shea Theodore and Brandon Potomak. Potomak is a forward and Theodore a defenceman. Klimek played for the Hawks, while Theodore was on MML’s Fraser Valley Bruins and Potomak played for the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy in Kelowna. The players are looking to land a spot on Team Pacific, a mix of B.C. and Alberta hockey players. The Hawks finished third in the league, at 24-8-8, and qualified for the post-season for the first time. The team won their first series before losing in the league’s semifinals.

After helping the Valley West Hawks to their best-ever finish, a pair of local defencemen are hoping to make the jump to the next level, the Western Hockey League, when the hockey season begins. Both Kyle Burroughs and Kyle Becker were named to the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League’s allstar team, it was announced earlier this month. They were joined on the list by their goaltender, Cloverdale Minor Hockey product Steven Myland. Myland led the league in goals against average, with an eye-popping 1.94 GAA. And Burroughs and Becker, both products of the Langley Minor Hockey Association system, were a big reason the Hawks allowed the fewest goals against in the league last season. But the two defencemen did more than just anchor the team’s blue-line, they were key cogs in the offensive attack. Becker led the league’s defencemen with 13 goals, while Burroughs was second in points among blueliners with 36 (11 goals, 25 assists). The 17-year-old was in his second season with the Hawks and he said having the green light from his coaches made the world of difference in his play. “I was encouraged to make my plays,” he explained. “Having the coaches’ confidence is huge, knowing they have your back.” He also credited his teammates
