Three Abby men make top-10 car thieves list Integrated auto crime team names most-wanted

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Three Abbotsford men are on B.C.’s top 10 list of most-wanted car thieves. Christopher John Bursey, 22 (third on the list), Million Gerbe Radia, 32 (seventh), and Clint Warren Rose, 35 (ninth), join seven others named by the the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) as the most notorious car thieves in the Lower Mainland. The other culprits – all men ranging in age from 21 to 43 – are from Surrey, Richmond, Langley, Penticton, Ridge Meadows, and New Westminster.

IMPACT released their names and photos on Thursday as part of Auto Crime Enforcement Month and the 10th anniversary of the bait car program in B.C. Bursey is on the list because he fled from police in a stolen BMW, wrapped it around a telephone pole and attempted to flee on foot and hide in a nearby Keg restaurant. His criminal history includes various property crimes. He is wanted for possession of stolen property, theft, possession of break-in instruments and unlawful use of ID. Radia allegedly stole two separate vehicles within four days and fled from police

in the stolen vehicles on both occasions. He is prohibited from driving Canadawide and should be considered violent, police say. He is wanted for possession of stolen property and breach of probation. Rose is a repeated car thief in Abbotsford/ Mission who continually flees from police and has numerous property crime convictions, according to IMPACT. He is wanted for breach of his bail conditions and driving while prohibited. At a press conference Thursday in Surrey, Attorney-General Shirley Bond Continued on A4

Brave actions recognized Cadet earns Medal of Bravery for stopping bus Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

There was no time to think, just time to act. So that’s what Simon Grant did. It has been more than two years since Warrant Officer First Class Grant took action, and last week the member of the Air Cadet Squadron 861 Silverfox in Abbotsford was presented with the Cadet Medal of Bravery from the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. He received the honour for his “outstanding valour as an air cadet, involving the risk of his own life to save others and maintain their well-being.” The incident took place Oct. 10, 2009 in Fort Langley. Then only 16, Grant and his fellow cadets were helping with the local cranberry festival, SUBMITTED PHOTO unloading and loading trolley buses, which were Warrant Officer First Class Simon Grant receives the Cadet Medal of Bravery from parked on an incline and Commander Stan Bates from the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Pacific) in Victoria. filled with people. gers on board, Grant moved long enough for the driver to The bus Grant was helpcatch up and take over. When ing to load suddenly began to quickly. “I just hopped on the bus and he looked up, all 35 people on roll on its own, with no driver looked down at the pedals.” the bus were just staring at inside. At that time, he didn’t have him. “The brakes failed. I heard a “It was silent. It was very snapping, odd sound and sud- a driver’s licence and didn’t silent. Nobody knew what was denly the bus was moving,” he know which pedal was which. He chose correctly and man- going on. Then I just walked said. Knowing there were passen- aged to bring the bus to a stop off the bus.”

By the time he stopped the bus’ progress, it had already gone over the curb and was about 10 feet away from an embankment, which would have sent it on a one and a half storey fall. “It was no more than 10 seconds, the whole thing,” he said. No one was hurt in the incident. Grant said he doesn’t like to think about what could have happened. Last week’s medal ceremony was a huge thrill for him. “My hands were numb. I don’t know how to explain it. Exciting doesn’t do it justice. There was a lot of emotion.” This was not his first award. Grant has also received the Long Service Medal, Lord Strathcona Medal, Chief Instructors Award and the Legion Medal of Excellence. Because he turns 19 later this month, the award ceremony was his last official event as a cadet. But he doesn’t think his involvement in the military has come to an end. “I have an application into RMC, the military college. I want to be a logistics officer.” He said his family has a long history of soldiers, police officers, correctional officers, paratroopers and more. “My family has always been sort of military. ‘There’s never been a Grant out of uniform’ is pretty much the saying.”

Abby starts strong in health challenge Nearly 400 sign up for healthy lifestyle Tyler ORTON Black Press

Hundreds of locals came out Saturday ready to commit to a healthy lifestyle in the coming months as part of a province-wide competition. The 398 local residents who registered at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre for the 2012 Healthy Community Challenge trumped this city’s three direct municipal competitors. Only 275 people registered among the other communities, with Surrey garnering 152 participants compared to Coquitlam’s 33 and 90 participants from Langley. “We had an overwhelming success,” said Heidi Enns, Abbotsford director of recreation services. She said the city was able to attract so many people through active community engagement.

“Essentially what we did was we opened up our facility to private and public partners, agencies, private fitness clubs, fitness suppliers,” Enns said, adding a nutritionist was even on site during Saturday’s registration as people weighed in and recorded their body mass index. She said the registration ran the full gamut of people wanting to stay in shape— everyone from triathletes to people who engage in very little physical activity. “We just opened our doors to give people as many different options to be physically active and participate within the Healthy Community Challenge at their own level and at their own interest.” The event aims to promote healthy lifestyles across B.C. by getting participants to record their food and exercise habits online in order to earn points from their activity. The community to earn the most points wins the event.

Participants can even go online and submit queries to the personal training company, Innovative Fitness. Staff will respond free of charge and provide guidance to people looking to stay healthy. Innovative Fitness trainer Yoshia Burton said low-key activity like walking is only the beginning of a program, since people really need to ratchet up the intensity. “It’s all about consistency and sustainable changes,” he said. City of Abbotsford business analyst Christina Vugteveen said the registration included a mix of kids, adults and families. She said it’s important for youth to get active at an early age to ensure future vitality. “Health care costs are exponentially growing and about a quarter of the population in considered to be overweight or obese,” Vugteveen said. Registration continues until April 25, online at healthycommunitychallenge.com.

said 77 of the 80 mostwanted car thieves have been caught in the last 10 years. She said since the bait car program was introduced in 2003, auto theft has been reduced by 71 per across B.C., and thefts from vehicles have decreased by 64 per cent. The reductions are even greater in Abbotsford, where there have been 76 per cent fewer stolen vehicles and 80 per cent fewer thefts from vehicles since 2003, according to figures released by ICBC. From 2010 to 2011 alone, those numbers

dropped 17 per cent and 36 per cent, respectively. In Mission, there has been a 63 per cent drop in stolen vehicles since 2003, and 65 per cent fewer car break-ins. Those incidents fell 35 per cent and 36 per cent from 2010 to 2011. Abbotsford Police recently announced that last month the city recorded the lowest February on record for stolen vehicles. Those numbers could drop even further. Bond announced Thursday that the bait car program has now expanded to include commercial vehicles such as construction

They led officers to the victim who was in the back seat of a car, bleeding and unresponsive.

North Poplar students help sister school in Kenya Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The students had no idea why their teachers had asked them to gather in the dance room at North Poplar Fine Arts School and pull a ticket out of a bag. Ten per cent of the kids grabbed a yellow ticket and were sent to an area of the room where they were treated to fast food meals, including burgers and donuts. Another 20 per cent received a green ticket, and were each served a bowl of beans and a glass of water. The remaining 70 per cent of the students pulled a blue ticket, and were relegated to a garbage-strewn area with buckets of dirty water and soggy taco chips scattered on the floor. Parents dressed as guards kept the kids in this corner away from the other areas.

On whether our fullsize City buses should be replaced with smaller vehicles

More people will use public transit soon with gas prices rising indefinitely, I think we’ll see more people taking public transit in the near future

Use smaller buses around town as a bus rider myself, i think its a good idea to use smaller shuttle buses around areas not so busy! personally i think there is two main bus routes in abby and those are bus#1 and bus#2...all other routes can use shuttle buses:)

Do not make buses smaller If you want to kill what little Transit we have in Abbotsford then by all means make the buses smaller so that even when people think about using the busses, they cant. Great idea..............not

On the BC government backing out of a multimillion dollar to rename BC Place.

Fund the teachers Maybe Telus should help fund the teachers/schools and they can put their logo on all the schools......way more people would see it then!!

Take the money i cant help but think “take the money” when i see “$40-million”

Whitecaps nixed it? I’m sure the government would but The Whitecaps would never let it happen!!

Waiting for more money? I don’t care what it’s called, they should get a sponsorship deal. Who knows, maybe this one wasn’t good enough... they may be waiting for more money. We don’t even know the details of the contract they didn’t accept.

Telus vs. Bell The WhiteCaps Jersey has Bell in big bold capital letters on the front, do you really think they will allow them to call the stadium they play in the Telus Stadium I dont think so

Use money for education why was it ok to change the name of GM Place...oops I mean Rogers Arena ;) but not BC Place? makes no sence...I agree, take the money and get some funding for smaller class sizes and more educational resources.

Telus vs. Bell Bc Place is a historic icon. Changing the name would be stupid, especially if these rights were given to a rival of Bell. Give field naming rights only. Also, money raised by a new name would be going to pay off and compensate for the roof, it would have no effect on the current teacher situation. For breaking news and top stories.

Kenya. Last summer, they visited their sister school and saw how some of North Poplar’s funding is helping there and in the surrounding community. This included the purchase of 12 tanks that collect and store rainwater, saving villagers a day-long trek to and from the nearest water source. Tochkin said seeing first-hand the nation’s abject poverty was shocking but impactful, and it’s important to involve children in solutions. “Children are the future and imparting to them the importance of global awareness and ways to which they can make a difference is now our responsibility, and we feel passionate about this.” The pair already have another trip booked to Kenya this summer. For more information about PKSS, visit projectkenyasisterschools.com or contact Tochkin or Wallace at North Poplar Fine Arts School, 604-859-3101.

Broadcast leads to correction and apology Vancouver radio station CKNW issued a correction and the website Abbotsford Today published an apology to the Abbotsford News following a recent radio broadcast and related online articles. Vince Dimanno, a failed local council candidate, appeared as a guest on the Bill Good radio show on Feb. 28, which focused on city advertising. Dimanno was referred to as the president of the Abbotsford Ratepayers Associaton, but was not also identified as a co-owner of the Abbotsford Today, an online competitor with the Abbotsford News. During the segment, Dimanno made comments in regard to spending by the City of Abbotsford on advertising with The News. Following the broadcast, legal counsel for The News contacted CKNW and Dimanno. On March 8, Good read an on-air statement indicating, “We have since been advised by the Abbotsford News that the information provided by Mr. Dimanno was quite incorrect.” The radio station further acknowledged in respect to The News, “…there is a strict separation between advertising and news such that there is no influence. The newspaper points out that it both reports and editorializes on all sides of the issues. “CKNW appreciates receiving the information and is happy to set the record straight.” On Friday, March 9, the Abbotsford Today published on its website the following statement: “During the broadcast, both local Abbotsford newspapers were mentioned

and the Abbotsford News, a Black Press property, was discussed. The point was made by Mr. Dimanno that all city newspaper advertising dollars were spent in the Abbotsford News and that the City of Abbotsford might be the newspaper’s number one advertiser. It was further inferred that at such a high level of spending, the Abbotsford News may, in some way, be influenced by this revenue. “This is not true, and it was not Mr. Dimanno’s intention to infer such a fact. In fact... 1. The Abbotsford News has a long history of independence and integrity with respect to its editorial content, and has won numerous national and provincial awards for its news reporting, and, 2. The Abbotsford News is acutely aware of the fundamental importance of freedom of expression and freedom of the press, and, 3. Statements made and published on Abbotsford Today could be interpreted as being intended to damage the reputations of Black Press and the Abbotsford News. Abbotsford Today unreservedly apologizes for any statements published which could be interpreted as an implication that The Abbotsford News’ editorial content is in any way influenced by the advertising it receives from the City of Abbotsford.” The statement was signed by Dimanno and Mike Archer, a co-owner of Abbotsford Today. Abbotsford News publisher Andrew Franklin noted that the City of Abbotsford is not the paper’s number one advertiser, representing a small fraction of total revenue.

Chronic dysfunction

It was not without irony that as teachers prepared to strike last week, some Chilliwack parents were receiving an invitation in their mailbox from their child’s school to take part in a “Satisfaction Survey.” The survey is conducted annually by the B.C. Ministry of Education to help schools better meet the educational needs of their students. “The data gathered,” states the letter, “is returned to the school and is used to inform the school goal setting process with the intent to provide the best possible education for your child.” Students in selected grades are asked to take part in the survey, as well as their parents and teachers. Deadline for completion of the survey is not until May, however the letter urges parents to complete the online questionnaire sooner rather than later. The ministry might want to rethink that timeline. With the school year disrupted by yet another labour impasse, parents may

have some choice words about the state of education in this province. For the parents of a Grade 12 student, this week’s walkout marks the third major labour disruption in their child’s school career. It’s yet another reminder of the dysfunction that has plagued labour relations in B.C. for decades. Only once since province-wide negotiations began has there been a negotiated settlement between teachers and their employer. Even under former NDP governments labour relations between teachers and government have been acrimonious at best. Amid this chronic labour dysfunction, parents can’t help but ask what impact this turmoil is having on their child’s education – and their school’s ability to “provide the best possible education.” Their answers to question 21 of the Satisfaction Survey should prove interesting. It asks, “ Does your child’s report card provide clear information about his/her progress?” – Black Press

A little culture refreshes the soul Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand Never one to spend much time regarding the finer things in life such as art and music, I did manage to break out of the plaid shirt mould a couple of times in the past week. Perhaps being immersed in paint fumes for hours at a time during a basement renovation inspired me. The fast beat of Irish step-dancing drew us to the AESC for Lord of the Dance. Michael Flatley wasn’t there, but he wasn’t missed because the ensemble who presented the show in Abbotsford was exceptional. And it was a packed house, considering such events require half the centre’s 7,000 seats for staging and costume changes. Then, a few days later, we went from mega sound amplification and dazzling outfits to what I first assumed would be a sombre rendition of choir singing, cour-

tesy of the Valley Concert Society. Again a packed house, this time at Matsqui Centennial Theatre (aka city hall). And there what we heard was the truly remarkable ability of the human voice to fill a room as the Elmer Iseler Singers captivated in so many ways. Virtually every ‘song’ was presented a cappella and the voice range of the 20 singers was exceptional. A far better way to spend a few hours than at a paint store anguishing over paint chips and trying to match myriad colours, only to settle on white and grey, with a little splash of vibrancy on a feature wall. Painting, like mowing the lawn, is a mindless task that allows thoughts to wander and ponder things such as the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. Apparently that misnamed isle is covered in ice up to three kilometers deep. But if it ever sheds its mantle, the melt waters will raise sea levels by more than seven metres. From what I gather though, homes in Delta and Richmond aren’t threatened, unless of course those residents are immortal. Because, with a 2 C degree

rise in global warming, it will take some 50,000 years to melt the ice cap. Increase the temperature another degree or two and by golly, you could begin to get wet feet within just 500 years, and in a couple of millennia the ice would be all gone and parts of Abbotsford will be waterfront. Not to say the world doesn’t need to cut

What we heard was the truly remarkable ability of the human voice to fill a room... back on carbon emissions, and curtail ‘greenhouse’ gasses, but even according to science we have some time left to change our ways. Awareness of our wrong-doings is good, and for the 200 years since the industrial revolution began we have taken a rather cavalier approach towards Earth’s stewardship. If we think of the innovations in the past century, and assume we will con-

tinue to be as intelligent in the next, solutions to the climate change dilemma will come. We just need a little nudging from the doomsday prognosticators to come up with alternative sources of energy not provided by fossil fuels. The real motivator of change, however, will not be the threat of rising sea levels and impending water inundation thousands of years from now. It will be profit, because as our current energy sources are tapped out and begin to disappear, science and corporate boardrooms will invest in and create sources that are environmentally benign yet provide significant economic return. Then we can all begin to worry about an impending ice age! So, if you are living in low-lying areas, and feel you can ignore your basement renovation project because it will soon be flooded anyway, forget it. Mix up the tile mortar, haul home cans of paint, and get to it. And I suggest that every now and then, try to take in a little culture. It puts the mind at ease and elicits an appreciation of what talented people contribute to our lives. markrushton@abbynews.com

BREAKING

NEWS

ALPHA

Come so far, and going backward When I was growing up, my mom and older sister were experiencing the women’s movement of the 1960s and ’70s – equal rights, equal pay, etc. They raised me to understand that we are lucky to be living in this century because not too long ago, women were not so fortunate, and their lives literally depended on the mercy of whatever type of man ran the household. Inheritance went only from father to son or sonin-law or closest male relative, whether the father had daughters or not; it was of little consequence when it came to inheritance rights. It’s hard to believe that our gender has come so far, only to be set back by people who will do anything to make money from the exploitation of others, especially the exploitation of women or girls who don’t seem to value themselves and who end up exploiting themselves in search of attention, approval and value. I don’t doubt there are thousands of girls wanting to audition for the LFL (as per their spokesperson). When a young girl is raised that their value is in their looks and sexuality, which ends up outweighing the value of who they really are, then it seems a natural progression that they will emulate their idols or the images they see all around them. The music videos you see now would have, 10 years ago, been considered soft porn. What do we expect when we’re bombarded with the Jersey Shore gang, the Kardashians, Girls

Gone Wild, and all the images, videos and advertisements that sell their product with sexuality? There is a documentary film nominated for an Academy Award this year, which chronicles the lives of some Pakistani women. Some whom have had acid thrown in their faces by their fathers, mothers-in-law, etc. for not following the rules of their culture. So here we are, on the other side of the world, with the freedom to make choices, to run our own lives as equal citizens in our society, and what do these young girls choose to do? Tackle each other in bras and panties wearing a helmut and shoulder pads, and call it football, when we all know it’s just the marketing strategy of the sex industry once again making a buck off the backs of our seemingly devalued young women. I have a 15-year-old daughter and she thinks this is just plain stupid. She rolls her eyes at the notion that young women will be running around half naked, playing a sport, for the pleasure of a bunch of leering men who, I’m sure, really can’t see the problem with this at all. Come on people, teach your daughters they don’t have to shake their butts to be popular, to feel loved or get attention. They are worth more than that aren’t they? It’s really quite sad isn’t it that we’ve come such a long way and are now turning backwards at an even faster pace. D. Wall

Upgrade the BMX facility

alive & well be well. be a friend.

I was pleased to see in the Feb. 10 issue of The News that the Abbotsford BMX club will be hosting a World Cup BMX event. The world/ Olympic class hill is a real draw for the local club. A World Cup event is a great way to show off our city. We have the Discovery Trail, fancy artworks at roundabouts, unique benches in downtown Abbotsford, huge signs advertising local events as well as promoting local business. What the world of BMX racing is going to experience is the racing park with no running water and a porta-potty. Is that the picture we want these athletes and their families from around the world to take home? The condition of the parking lot is another horror story. Shame on you, Abbotsford. Until now, it seems as if it looks good in a glossy brochure or on a website it happened. Now let’s put Abbotsford BMX Park in that category. These athletes and their families have worked hard to put Abbotsford on the BMX World map. It isn’t just the club that benefits from such an event but the whole community benefits from the dollars spent here. We are proud of our athletes. Now, let’s upgrade the facility to make us proud of our BMX Park. We are probably the only track in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest that doesn’t have running water and proper toilet facilities. G. Hartley

letters Setting children up for failure I am ashamed at the government and its reaction to its responsibility for our children’s education. We tell our kids to stay in school and graduate, yet they put so many obstacles in their way. I am also ashamed of how many parents do not support the teachers. Have you done your homework? Why are teachers asking for what they are asking for?

Ask a teacher and find out how hard it is to want to do things but are denied by the government. My children are everything, and I refuse to have them be failures. While I have the time to devote to my children’s schooling, many do not. Do you want your children to become that statistic? No graduation, no future? If we do not support the needs of

our children and the teachers, we are setting our children up for failure. Bill 22 is bull. It is robbing our children of their right to education. If our government wants to balance the budget, they should start with the outrageous bonuses and raises they give themselves. Cut those before you steal my children’s future! Jacqelyn M. Turner

What does every parent want from their child’s sport experience?

Start listening more to citizens It is now almost 90 days into this city council and new mayor’s term. They have done some good things, but are not doing enough. To put hockey in front of our first responders is completely unacceptable. I do not support the Heat and will not. Global Spectrum has to be more accountable to the city for its booking at the arena. Every day I hear the first responders going up and down McKee. We need the extra firefighters. If you want to cut something, then get rid of the eight or nine City of Abbotsford

vehicles that sit outside in the parking lot for up to two hours a day. If the vehicle is

not used for more than 24 hours in a week, it is not required. Please, Mr. Mayor

Bowl For Kids’ Sake

The 23rd annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley is in full swing.

What languages should be taught in our schools? The Abbotsford Board of Education would like your opinion! The Ministry of Education requires that all students develop a basic level of skill in a second language. Eight additional language options are available in BC schools: French, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Punjabi, German, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese plus approved Aboriginal languages (Halq’emeylem) and American Sign Language. Individual Boards of Education consult with their local community and based on a sufficient level of interest and the availability of qualified teachers, any of the language choices may be offered to local students. We would like to know which options you prefer to be offered in your child’s school. The District will be conducting four focus groups, and is looking for community participation.

The Royal Canadian Legion in Abbotsford will commemorate Vimy Ridge Day with a candlelight vigil on April 9 (Easter Monday) at 6:45 p.m. at the cenotaph behind city hall. Held for the first time last year, the ceremony will be attended by the Silver Cross Mother Mrs. Bason, the local MP and MLAs, the mayor, the Royal Westminster Regiment, police, sheriffs and firefighters, air force and army cadets, and local service organizations. Candlelight vigil ceremonies were started in the Netherlands in 1995, where the local children tend the graves of Canadian servicemen and women who died liberating the Netherlands in World War II. Since then, the idea has been taken up by the Royal Canadian Legion. At the ceremony in Abbotsford, the same special candles will be placed around the cenotaph for the different armed services, for the Abbotsford veterans of different conflicts and for a number of Vimy Ridge veterans who have descendants living in

The candles, windproof and waterproof in their plastic housing, glow red as it gets dark at the end of the ceremony and produce a moving tribute to the veterans of Canada’s Armed Forces. Some youngsters from the audience will also be able to place candles. Vimy Ridge Day, April 9, was established by the government of Canada in 2003. It commemorates April 9, 1917, when the four Canadian divisions fought together for the first time as a united Canadian corps under mostly Canadian commanders. The camaraderie established by the Canadian way of approaching their objective and the thoroughness of training and preparation before the battle, led to a victory for the Canadian troops. All are welcome to attend the local vigil. There will be some covered seating. For more information, contact Peter Slade at columbia.49@shaw.ca

Abby man among rescue trio Award presented by Lifesaving Society Chilliwack’s Dan and Luke Bergmann along with Ron Shore of Abbotsford were among 21 recipients of bravery awards presented Saturday in Vancouver. The Lifesaving Society hosted the 100th annual Honour and Rescue Award Ceremony at the Hotel Vancouver, recognizing bravery in water-related rescues. Dan Bergmann and his son Luke were out for a day of fishing on Peg Leg Bar on the Fraser River in Chilliwack last September. Shore was also fishing nearby and was reeling in his line when he saw a man struggling in the river. Shore’s naval training kicked in, and he yelled, “Somebody grab a rope! Somebody call 911!” Dan heard Shore’s call from upstream and knew that help was needed. He and Luke ran to their boat and headed for the commotion. A fisherman had waded out too far and was now 15 metres off shore, being swept into the fast-moving current of the river. His chest waders were filled with water. Dan threw the man a rope, but that didn’t work so they got close enough for Luke to grab his wrists. Unable to haul him aboard, Luke held him as Dan headed the boat to shore. They rested on shore for 30 minutes then took the man to safety on the opposite shore to the applause of the crowd. Emergency personnel took the man to hospital and he was released the same day. Sadly, one week later a man drowned on the river at the same spot trying to help another man out of trouble in a similar situation. More than 250 guests were expected to attend the awards ceremony. The Lifesaving Society is a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to reduce water-related death and injury.

UFV women’s v-ballers win bronze

An incredible amount of resilience was required for the University of the Fraser Valley women's volleyball team to achieve a landmark finish at the national championships. At the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association tourney at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, the Cascades found themselves relegated to the consolation side of the draw after dropping their quarterfinal to the Humber Hawks in straight sets on Thursday. But the UFV women dug deep and battled their way back to the bronze medal game, where they made good on their second crack at Humber, winning in four sets. "It's our first-ever national tournament, and to have a result like this is very exciting," Cascades head coach Dennis Bokenfohr enthused. "We showed some resilience, and the girls started believing." The Cascades' alternative route to the podium began with

CBC’s Will Quiring goes for the kill during national semifinal action against Douglas. Quiring was a first team all-star as the host Bearcats finished fourth.

Playing before raucous capacity crowds in their home gym, the Columbia Bible College men’s volleyball team finished one step short of the podium at the national championships. The host Bearcats – the defending national champs – thrilled their fans with a nail-biting fiveset win over the Mount Royal Cougars of Calgary in their tournament opener on Thursday. In the semifinals on Friday, the CBC men dropped a tough four-set decision to their PacWest conference rival Douglas Royals. They bounced back to win a consolation-side game over the Quebec champion Outaouais Griffons on Saturday morning to punch their ticket to the bronze medal game, but they seemed to run out of gas at that point, as they lost in four sets in a rematch against Mount Royal. “We were excited to play in the bronze medal game, but we just looked a little flat and not like ourselves,” CBC head coach Rocky Olfert said afterward. “That loss against Douglas yesterday really hurt us, and I’m not sure we really fully recovered from that. But I’m proud of these guys.” The Humber Hawks won the gold, knocking off Douglas in

four sets in the final. In the 33-year history of the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association national tourney, only one other Ontario school – Sheridan College in 1983 – had ever won the title. Humber head coach Wayne Wilkins said the Ontario drought was something he and his team talked about frequently throughout the season, and they were determined to end it. “The most amazing thing is, they never shied away from the pressure,” Wilkins said. “You need to embrace it and use it as motivation, and they did.” Tourney MVP Terrel Bramwell was simply spectacular in the final, hammering down a mindboggling 45 kills to lead his Etobicoke, Ont. squad to victory. CBC sophomore outside hitter Will Quiring was a first team all-star, while fifth-year right side Matt Kaminski wrapped up his college career with a second team all-star nod. Throughout the event, the evening crowds brought an electric energy to Columbia Place. “We’ve gotten such an overwhelming amount of support this week, and we’re so grateful for that,” Olfert summarized.

The B.C. AAA boys basketball championship tips off at the Langley Events Centre this week, and the Yale Lions and W.J. Mouat Hawks are in the field. The Lions open on Tuesday at 11 a.m. against Point Grey, while the Hawks take on Kitsilano on Wednesday at 3 p.m.


Heat swept by Rivermen

It was a forgettable weekend for the Abbotsford Heat, as the local AHL club lost twice on home ice in decisive fashion to the Peoria Rivermen. The Rivermen thumped the Heat 4-1 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on Friday, and followed with a 5-0 win on Sunday. Rivermen goalie Jake Allen was nearly unbeatable all weekend – he stopped 71 of 72 shots in the two games combined. The Heat out-shot the visitors both games – 33-17 on Friday and 32-18 on Sunday – but Joe Piskula’s thirdperiod goal on Friday was the only marker they could muster. In the aftermath, Abbotsford head coach

Troy Ward pointed out his team is missing nine regulars currently, due to injuries and call-ups. “It is what it is – I’m a teacher, and we got a bad grade,” he said. “So what do I do? I’ve got to go teach tomorrow. “We’ve just got to stay with the process. It’s not the end of the world – it’s okay. We’ll just stay with it, and keep grinding away.” The Heat (32-243-3, 70 points) slid to seventh in the tight Western Conference standings, having been leapfrogged by the Rivermen (34-26-2-1, 71 points), who are now in fifth. The Heat hit the road this week for a fourgame swing through Texas, starting Tuesday at the Houston Aeros.

First podium finish for Cascades From A19

a straight-sets win over the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics of Halifax. In their next game, the Medicine Hat Rattlers won the first two sets, but UFV came roaring back to win the last three in thrilling fashion. They finished the job against Humber, by scores of 25-23, 25-23, 19-25 and 25-18. Jenna Evans led the

way with 18 kills, while Kayla Bruce chipped in with 13 kills and Brittany Stewart had 20 digs. Bruce was named a first team tournament all-star, while Evans was a second-teamer. "The reason the girls won the medal is they pushed all the way to the end," Bokenfohr said. "We had an exceptional tournament.”

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Elly (Loewen) Janzen unexpectedly passed away in Tucson, Arizona on March 4, 2012. Elly was born to Christian parents Jakob and Helene Loewen on February 16, 1935 in Kleefeld, Ukraine. Her parents were allotted a small piece of land in Halbstadt, and built a small home where she lived with her parents and older brother Jakob until 1943. Even though life in the early years was difficult for the Loewen family, Elly was young and carefree and enjoyed many fun times with her extended family. The family immigrated to BC in 1948 and settled in Yarrow. Elly married Walter Janzen on June 13, 1954 and were blessed with two sons and a daughter. In the mid 1970’s they began to travel and see the world. Their travels took them to many places such as Australia, Asia, Europe, and South America where they enjoyed many different cultures, had many exciting adventures, and met many dear friends. In later years, Elly and Walter became snowbirds, packed up their RV and enjoyed the lazy sunny days of Arizona. When they were not in Arizona, they spent their time at Sheridan Lake where they loved the peace and quiet of the Cariboo. She was welcomed into heaven by her beloved parents, her older brother Jakob, and her granddaughter Lindsay. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 57 years, Walter, her son Gerald (Marlene), and their children Erin (Jerome Winkle), Brad (Amy), Tyler; her son Glenn (Linda) and their children Nicole (Dave Scott), Jamie (Joshua Rueb), Scott; her daughter Laura (Dan) Sawatzky and their children Andrea and Nick; her greatgrandchildren Ryleigh and Mckenna Scott, Abigale Rueb, and Benjamin Winkle. A Viewing will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2012 from 7-8:00 p.m. at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford. A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, March 16, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. at the Maclure Road Mennonite Cemetery followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 11:00 a.m. at Ebenezer Mennonite Church, 2051 Winston Street, Abbotsford.

Kathi Farquhar, beloved mother, grandmother and sister, of Lethbridge, passed away at the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at the age of 60 years. She is the loving mother of John Farquhar, Angel Farquhar, and Jesse Farquhar. The grandmother to Brandon Farquhar and Kristen Farquhar; sister to Wayne (Arlene) Wiebe, Vic (Eren) Wiebe, Valerie (Kip) Miller, Larry Wiebe, Sheila (Bob Setoguchi) Wiebe, Duane “Jeff” (Jeannie) Wiebe and Bryan (Laurie Smith) Wiebe. She is also survived by her uncle Len (Jessie Ann) Gamble, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and many great friends. She was predeceased by her father Victor Wiebe, her mother Freda Wiebe, her son Jason Farquhar and her grandson Roger. Kathi was born in Chilliwack, BC, on November 4, 1951 to Vic and Freda Wiebe. She was raised on a dairy farm in the Fraser Valley, BC where she resided until the early 90’s raising her family, and spent many happy hours coaching her children’s softball teams, eventually earning umpire credentials. She resided in Fort St. John for eight years, eventually deciding to settle in Lethbridge, AB. She graduated with honors from Lethbridge College’s Child and Youth Care Diploma program and had a positive impact on the young people and co-workers she worked with at McMan Youth Services. Her love of diamonds and for meeting people led her to successful employment as the manager of several jewelry stores, most recently Charm Diamond Centers. She took pride in achieving many commendations and excellence awards for sales and customer service, but more valuable to her were the friends she made in co-workers and repeat customers. Her other passions included Elvis, photography, gardening, spending time with her family and friends, the Atlanta Braves, collecting Coke memorabilia and cows, which reminded her of her childhood on the farm. Kathi maintained a cheerful and positive attitude for others no matter what her personal circumstances were, and her strong Christian faith gave her the determination to endure any hardships that came her way and to carry on with renewed faith that rarely faltered. She was unique, generous and kind and had a way of leaving a lasting impression on all who met her. She will be sadly missed so very much. A Service of Remembrance will be held at SEVENOAKS ALLIANCE CHURCH (Community Room), 2575 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford, on Saturday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor Ed Wiebe officiating. In memory of Kathi, donations may be made to the Jack Ady Cancer Society, 2A #101, 960-19 St. South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 1W5 or to the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre, 1400-9 Ave. South, Lethbridge, AB T1J 4V5
