After Amarjit Singh Sidhu, 74, was struck and killed by a vehicle late last month, his friends and family set up a roadside memorial near the crash site. Every day since, Sidhu’s loved ones have placed candles and fresh flowers beneath a framed photo of him as a way to help them grieve his death. Last week, they were devastated to discover the entire memorial had been taken. “It just doesn’t make sense that somebody could be so cruel,” said Lovey Bring, Sidhu’s granddaughter.

Tool thief caught on video Footage shows him stealing tools and urinating in garage Vikki HOPES
NewsBytes SENTENCED FOR TREE CUTTING
Abbotsford Police have identified a possible suspect who was caught on a home video surveillance system early Wednesday morning as he stole tools and urinated in the victim’s garage. Const. Ian MacDonald said police received several tips about the man’s identity after the video was posted publicly. Homeowner Dana Mosher turned the footage over to police and posted the video online in hopes of snaring the culprit. “If I can help them in any way to get an individual like this off the street, great.” Mosher first discovered the theft after police knocked on the door of his Clearview Crescent home at about 2 a.m. Wednesday. A neighbour had reported seeing a man pushing a tool car down the street. By the VIDLEIONE cart tim police arrived, the man ON ws.com time abbyne wa gone but the cart was left was beh behind. Officers noticed that the doors of a vehicle parked in Mosher’s driveway were open and the hood was up. They knocked on his door, and Mosher immediately recognized the tool cart in the back of the police car. A check of his garage indicated that a thief had broken in and stolen dozens of tools that Mosher had purchased over the years. Many had been collected from his years as an electrician before he retired in 2010. Later that day, Mosher’s 15-year-old grandson helped him view footage from the surveillance camera in the garage. Mosher had installed the device – and others in and around his home – when he and his wife moved to the neighbourhood about five years ago. Signs on the property state, “If you can

The footage indicated that the young man made three separate trips to the garage, taking a few items each time and returning a few minutes later to grab more. But what disturbed Mosher the most was the footage that he didn’t notice until it had been uploaded to his computer. On the third trip, the thief casually urinated on the garage floor before loading some more items into his backpack. “It just went by us originally and we didn’t even notice it ... When I looked at it a second time, my jaw dropped opened and I felt absolutely violated. It just added
insult to injury,” Mosher said. Among the tools taken in the theft were a case of electronic testing items, a 120piece Craftsman tool set, a box of air tools and electrical drills. Mosher said a conservative estimate of their value is $5,000. He doesn’t expect to get the tools back, but he hopes police will confirm the thief ’s identity and charges will be laid. “Maybe it will keep him from doing it to somebody else.” The police are continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604859-5225.

was responsible. They replaced the flowers and Sidhu’s photo immediately, and have vowed to keep the memorial going. They urge the thieves to honour the tribute. “Let us grieve the way we want to,” Bring said. Sidhu was struck and killed by a Safari van while walking at about 6:30 a.m. on March 27. He was en route to pick up two of his grandchildren living not far from him, and take them to the bus stop to wait for their ride to school. Bring said her grandfather was known to always

use crosswalks, although police have not yet confirmed whether Sidhu was doing so at the time he was hit. The police investigation continues and it is not yet know whether charges will be laid against the driver of the van that struck him. Sidhu was mourned by more than 1,000 people at his memorial service on April 1 at Abbotsford Arts Centre for his devotion to the Indo-Canadian community. He was an executive member of the Khalsa Diwan Society and volunteered for hours every day at the society’s temple on South Fraser Way.
An Abbotsford man has been given a six-month conditional discharge and six months’ probation for cutting down a broadleaf maple tree in a forested area of the city. Troy Peters pleaded guilty to theft under $5,000 and was also ordered to pay $500 restitution to the City of Abbotsford, and to not possess any saws or tools that are suitable for cutting down or pruning trees. An Abbotsford resident contacted the Ministry of Forests in December 2010 to report that two men were cutting down a tree in a forested area of Old Clayburn. The ministry and the RCMP investigated. The following month, they saw four men in the area, and one was standing near a chainsaw and a freshly cut maple tree. Charges of theft under $5,000 were approved against two of them – Peters and Derek Joe. Charges against Joe were later stayed. Const. Cameron Kamiya of the forest crime investigation unit said the illegal harvesting of maple trees has escalated as they are sought for manufacturing musical instruments.
STOLEN MASKS RETURNED Some stolen hand-carved native masks have been returned to the owner, after having been purchased at the Abbotsford Flea Market. Chilliwack RCMP previously reported that several masks, as well as native gold and silver jewelry worth more than $25,000, had been stolen during a home break-in. On April 12, a man came to the front counter of the Chilliwack RCMP detachment with masks he had purchased a month ago at the local flea market. He saw media reports about the theft and believed the masks he had bought were the ones that had been stolen. Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said although many of the other stolen items are still missing, the family is grateful the man came forward. The investigation is continuing, and anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Water meters questioned Despite complaints, fluctuations, city says billing is correct Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
Are Abbotsfordâ€™s radio-read water meters reliable? The city believes so, but some homeowners have been studying their water bills and questioning whether theyâ€™re accurate. High fluctuations between billing periods have raised doubts. Gary Lein, a local resident for more than two decades, said his recent water bills have been puzzling. In July-August, he was charged $55.40. That shot up to $112.80 for SeptemberOctober, then back down to $54.24 for November-December. He wonders how his water bill doubled. â€œI wasnâ€™t even home for the first 17 days of that month,â€? said Lein. He and his wife were visiting the Interior and no one else lives in the home. Lein said he doesnâ€™t water his lawn, he washes the car at a car wash and they donâ€™t have any leaks. When he told the city about his dilemma, Lein said they asked him if his grandchildren might have been playing with the water. â€œI donâ€™t have any,â€? he told them. He has had no resolution, or explanation to why his bill jumped so high. He said itâ€™s strange, because after he complained, his next water bill was only $34. â€œI donâ€™t know what to expect.â€? Others tell a similar story. â€œItâ€™s never worked, right from the very beginning,â€? said Abbotsford homeowner David Janzen. He has been arguing with the city for months about their bills, but Janzen said little has been accomplished. Once the old meter was replaced, he said the water bill doubled. After complaining to the city about the problem, a technician was sent out to examine the meter. â€œEverything was perfect, no leaks or anything anywhere,â€? David said. However, his water bills still fluctuated â€“ sometimes double the amount from a
Gary Lein is skeptical of his new water meter after his bill suddenly doubled. previous bill. The couple live alone, donâ€™t water their lawn and say they are careful to conserve water. But their bills for close to $100 every two months are equal to what a family of four would pay. Janzen said he has given up trying to get a satisfactory resolution. â€œIt gets to be where your own time is more valuable than the time you are putting into it. Iâ€™ve decided just to live with it. It is what it is.â€? The city wonâ€™t comment on specific cases, but did confirm there are more than 25,000 water customers in Abbotsford. In the past year, staff have received approximately 2,500 inquiries about the water billing system. However, inquiries are calculated by volume, not by individual caller, meaning one complaint could comprise six or seven calls in order to resolve an issue. Many inquiries were in response to the more than 1,500 leak notification
letters sent out by staff. The meters, installed last year, monitor water use and send the information to a main data base. Because readings are sent automatically, rather than manually, the city can identify irregularities or leaks quicker, conserving water and saving households from huge bills. The city also changed its billing cycle from once a year to every two months so homeowners could see more frequently how much water is being used. The introduction of seasonal tiered water rates â€“ which charged more money per 1,000 litres once a consumer passed certain quantities of water used â€“ contributed to more billing fluctuations and customer confusion. The tiered rate has now been eliminated. City staff indicated that a majority of complaints have been explained by seasonal water use, leaks and fixtures left on. There have been no cases of faulty readings, according to staff. However, there were four leaks caused by â€œinstallation deficiencyâ€? and about a dozen cases where the meters were incorrectly programmed, but those issues were addressed and customer bills were adjusted. â€œWhere there has been an issue with a meter, thereâ€™s been a reason for it. Itâ€™s either been a leak or itâ€™s been somebody overusing water, so there really is nothing out of step with the radioread meters,â€? said city manager Frank Pizzuto. â€œWe have confidence in those radioread meters.â€? He said now that people are used to the new billing system, and comparing them to their tax notices (the public used to be charged for water and sewer once a year), the number of complaints is going down. He said the fluctuations should begin to slow down as well, now that tiered water rates have been cancelled.

First point of contact Neil CORBETT
Lori Riggins’ first day with the Matsqui Police was working at the front counter during the weekend of Airshow 1986, and it was headspinning busy. But it started a career that saw her become a calm voice on the phone for people calling for help. As she looks forward to her retirement this month, Riggins also looks back on 25 years as a civilian employee of the Matsqui and Abbotsford police departments – most as a dispatcher. Emergency Dispatchers Week, April 8-15, acknowledged the work they do. As she leaves the profession, Riggins doesn’t mind saying it’s a critical job. Dispatchers are front-line workers, she points out. They are often the first point of contact for a person who is suicidal. They need to get vital information from people who are panicked,
often in dangerous situations. They are responsible for ensuring that police are able to safely enter a scene. They give all the information available to responding police officers, and then calmly move on to the next call, often never hearing the resolution of the last situation. “The Abbotsford Police Communications Centre is a busy place where hundreds of calls are received daily and over 50,000 calls are received annually,” indicated a press release from the APD. “Police dispatchers are a police officer’s lifeline. They are also a crucial point of contact for people who need to get help in a hurry when the worst incidents and circumstances are unfolding.” In her first years with the department, Riggins was not involved with emergency situations. She was on the front counter, then worked for Continued on A7

MAYOR JOINS CUTS FOR A CURE Mayor Bruce Banman had his head shaved bald by local businessman Paul Esposito as part of the Abbotsford Heat’s Cuts for the Cure campaign on Sunday. The local AHL hockey team is estimated to have raised more than $30,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation in the campaign.
four years in the records department doing data input. In 1992, she got her first opportunity to train as a dispatcher. “This has definitely been a lot more challenging,” she said. The municipalities of Abbotsford and Matsqui merged in 1995, and she became an employee of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD). She remembers the worst of times, in 1995, when Terry Driver, the “Abbotsford Killer,” had attacked two 16-year-old girls with a baseball bat, killing Tanya Smith and leaving Misty Cockerill with skull fractures. Then Driver engaged in bizarre behaviour which included taunting phone calls to police. It would be the dispatcher’s job to keep him on the line as long as possible, and ask him the right questions to try to get information. “Never knowing who would get that call – that was stressful.” Riggins was thankful to not have to take a call from Driver, and avoid involvement in the trial, which saw him convicted of first-degree murder
and declared a dangerous offender. She took on a leadership role in the communications centre, becoming a shift supervisor in 2006, coaching other communications staff and conducting call reviews. “Common sense is a big thing, and you have to be able to multi-task, and be able to work under pressure.” She started out writing down information with pen and pad, but now dispatchers have four different computer monitors at their stations, bringing up a map, the Canadian Police Information Centre, and information such as the background of an address and the people living there. Strong computer literacy is another must. With retirement, she plans to travel, visiting grandchildren in Ontario and California. “It’ll be nice to not have to get up at five in the morning,” she said. Riggins is “very proud,” to have been part of the APD. She came to the detachment just looking for a job, and wound up with a career. “It’s a family. I’m going to miss it ...”

Being Responsible… ...unto Death. How responsible are we to family, friends, and ourselves? Have you thought of the responsibility that you hold for your life now? Being responsible, is taking action. We do not want things left undone. If you died tonight, would you have been responsible enough to make sure that your final wishes were taken care of ? Death is a horrible experience for families. There are decisions to be made, and financial obligations need to be addressed. We would like to introduce two new products that can help alleviate the financial burden of a funeral. For example, prearranging for someone age 50 years can cost as little as $16.00 a month. For someone age 60 it can cost as little as $19.00 a month. These plans are affordable and they will relieve the financial burden on the family while freezing escalating funeral costs. Today, there are many choices available to you. Prearranging is a responsible decision. It provides peace of mind, protects your loved ones from having to make important decisions during one of life’s most emotional times, and it helps to create a celebration of your life. We are offering you a complimentary Dignity Memorial Personal Planning Guide to help you begin. In addition, we will extend a 12% savings on the HST for entrusting us with your funeral prearrangements. This will be in effect until May 30, 2012. Responsibility needs to take place even at the end of life.

Region’s best meet at Heritage Fair Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News
At the Fraser Valley Regional Heritage Fair, Andrew Williams-Turner and Josh Appenheimer were both winners, for Aboriginal Excellence, and Policing in Canada.
Try Us... You’ll Love the Experience!
Dressed in buckskin jacket and headband, Qwelsim offers a piece of smoked salmon, taken from his display on Salmon Fishing at the Fraser Valley Regional Heritage Fair. His classmates in Grade 4 at Dormick Park Elementary know Qwelsim (his name in the traditional Halq’eméylem
language) better as Andrew WilliamsTurner, but he was transfor med for his project at the 16th annual fair on Wednesday and Thursday. So; too, was Josh Appenheimer, with a loaned Abbotsford Police Department uniform shirt and a pair of reflective aviator sunglasses, for the Grade 5 Bradner Elementary student’s project about the Abbotsford Police. Appenheimer was a provincial finalist during last year’s heritage fair. The Heritage Fair’s corner of Tradex was bustling with 147 kids demonstrating their 140 heritage projects (some paired up for the competition). They dressed in traditional Mennonite garb, Paul Henderson’s Team Canada hockey jersey or whatever uniform best illustrated their projects. At total of 70 people, including city councillors and school trustees were judges, having informative chats with the kids. Each judge gave marks to between five and seven projects, with each project marked by three judges. Organizer Cindy Rowell explained the MSA Museum Society puts on the annual
Fraser Valley Regional Heritage Fair. Schools across the region held earlier fairs, with more than 800 students participating and the top projects advanding the regional final. They came from Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Hope, Langley and Maple Ridge. This year, the provincials will be held in Abbotsford for the first time on the Canada Day long weekend, June 29 to July 3, staged by the B.C. Heritage Fairs Society. Rowell said she attended provincials last year in Victoria, and was impressed by the event. “It’s so educational for them,” she said. “They do outstanding work on projects that they are interested in.” She said the kids also get public speaking confidence from the competition. “Teachers who do it (the competition) realize the value in it.” There was a lot of recognition to go around – there were 20 category awards, two memorial awards and five provincial awards. The five top projects will be chosen to move on to provincial competition, and these are still being decided upon.

Taxes, tolls change behaviour TransLink’s annual report makes for some fascinating reading. Gas tax revenue actually declined in 2011, falling $12 million from the $324 million collected in 2010. While there is no evidence that people are driving signiﬁcantly less, it is obvious that many are doing their best to avoid the TransLink tax. That’s why some people travel to the U.S. to gas up, often with a number of jerry cans. Others head to Abbotsford or Mission, where gas prices are lower because there is no TransLink tax. TransLink just boosted the gas tax by two cents a litre, but the net effect may be to turn a trickle of tax evaders into a much larger stream. The mayors who backed the higher gas tax claim that another $40 million will be raised. It is quite likely that this target will not be met. While some drivers will continue to ﬁll up in Metro Vancouver, many others will not. When the higher gas taxes are combined with the higher limits for bringing back U.S. goods duty-free, which go into effect on June 1, this tax boost may
do little other than drive more shoppers across the border. This is hardly good for the local economy, and would seem to be a self-defeating measure. Transit ridership in 2011 was at record levels, with ridership up 8.6 per cent. This is likely due, at least in part, to widened use of U-Passes by university students. While transit fares collected totalled $444 million, one wonders how much more would be collected if all riders were made to pay fares, and if ﬁnes were collected. Golden Ears Bridge tolls totalled $33.7 million, almost 11 per cent less than TransLink had expected to collect. Overall Golden Ears trafﬁc was up, which seems to indicate that more people are using it as a travel alternative. The higher trafﬁc levels may also be related to more economic activity. It will be interesting to see how the bridge use changes when the new Port Mann Bridge opens. Tolls on the two will be similar, but the Golden Ears may get more use by people who have thus far avoided tolls by using the Port Mann. – Black Press
Scoring has never been as important Mark
Rushton On the
Other Hand At a wedding held this weekend in a spectacular ﬁshing lodge on the outskirts of Agassiz, some of the chit-chat focused on two races currently underway – the Canucks’ quest for the cup and the outcome of the provincial byelection in Chilliwack-Hope. This week will tell the tale on both issues, as the Canucks are certainly door-die at home on Wednesday … facing an almost impossible comeback, having to win four straight to advance to the next level. The byelection, which will be decided on Thursday, is not so much about who will win, but which party will come in second. Because it certainly appears from all observations that for the ﬁrst time in its history, Chilliwack will have a left-wing MLA. Whoever ﬁnishes second may be the star in political ‘comebacks’. The constituency, which at one time
included Abbotsford, was one of the ﬁrst Social Credit strongholds when in 1952 W.A.C. Bennett created a coalition of Liberals and Conservatives. Ken Kiernan won, and created the right-wing legacy that has prevailed until now. The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) was an emerging political presence in the late 1940s and ’50s, eventually morphing into the NDP, which until now has never had a chance at electoral success in this part of the Fraser Valley. The reason: the “right” has, since Kiernan’s day, been uniﬁed. This week’s byelection has changed all that with the coalition formed by Bennett in the very early ’50s, now fragmented in Chilliwack. And as they say in politics, frag the right and the left gets in, because no matter how viliﬁed the NDP often is, the party always seems to maintain about a 37 per cent support ratio. Somewhat like poker, a 37 beats two 32s anytime! While the good folks of ChilliwackHope may be shocked come Friday morning that they are now represented by an NDP MLA, it will not be the end of the world. What is disconcerting, however, is that the fragmentation of the current
liberal/conservative coalition could put the government’s future at stake. Therefore, whoever comes up second in this race may become the prognosticator of things to come. If it is the Conservative, then there is tremendous pressure on the governing party to stay together. If it is the BC Liberal, then there is some assurance that the current coalition will survive …
The fragmentation of the current liberal/ conservative coalition could put the government’s future at stake and remain a force on British Columbia’s political scene. What that latter scenario will do, however, is send a very clear message that splitting the right side of the vote will result in an NDP win, even in a clearly “conservative” riding. Thus the mantra that will resonate over the next 12 months is that the right must stick together to fend off what is
potentially an NDP government following the general election in 2013. A similar situation in the always riotous political scene in B.C. occurred in 1972 when Dave Barrett catapulted the NDP to power over Bennett’s Socreds, helped immensely by a right-wing fragmentation driven by Dave Anderson of the B.C. Liberals and Derril Warren leading the B.C. Conservatives. That episode cost the Socreds the election, and ended forever W.A.C.’s premiership. Son Bill, with certain help from dad, managed to reunite the right, regain government and hold it together until Bill Vander Zalm managed to shatter the coalition that resulted in Mike Harcourt and three other NDP premiers running the province for a decade ending in 2001. So while many eyes will be glued to the television Wednesday night to see how the Canucks fare, there will certainly be as many, if not more, watching Thursday night’s election result. Scoring, from all sides, hasn’t been this important for a long time, and the results of either contest, no matter which way they go, will have tremendous implications on the future of both the team and the province. email@example.com

letters Guard yourselves and children Jodi Shaw and Greg Bruns both made good remarks that we as a city and parents should be looking out for youth. What those three teenage girls did to that 30-year-old man at Mill Lake was absolutely wrong and punishable by law. As the APD stated, that man who was beaten could have been killed. But thankfully he’s alive. We, as a city, need to be more on the lookout for youth after 11 p.m. There are movies and sports games that often finish around 11 p.m. After
that, the APD should pay closer attention to youth out in the parks or out in public after, in my personal opinion, 11 p.m. unless accompanied by a legal guardian, parent, youth leader, etc... All parks should be closed after 11 p.m. It’s unsafe for a man and a woman to be walking alone in a park where visibility is not good. What’s the point of walking in hot zones of cities where there’s trouble and crime is high? If people put themselves at risk, should
we – the ones who don’t put ourselves at risk – pay for their mistakes? I believe there are people out there who will debate my theory on this and disagree with me, because this is just my opinion. It’s how I personally see it, and it’s my view not yours. We all have to discern for ourselves and for our children what’s best for their and our safety.

I have to say, if I know how to properly defend myself does that give me the permission to walk out in a park at 3 a.m. or to go for a walk where there’s prostitution, crime, and police activity? The answer: No. That would be stupid. We all must use discretion in how we guard ourselves and our children. Bruce Parker

It is the same pipeline that has been supplying the coast since I was a kid, and I’m a senior now. During all those decades the amount of oil spilled compared to the billions if not trillions of gallons delivered has been miniscule.

The show pays homage to the musical culture of Ireland, while exploring the musical journey each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago. Former members Damian McGinty and Paul Byrom have moved on while Keith Harkin is working on a solo project. The rest of the ensemble, including Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, George Donaldson and Emmet Cahill, welcome 13-year-old Daniel Furlong to the fold as a guest artist on this show.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
The Abbotsford Collegiate Panthers left not a shred of doubt as to the identity of B.C.’s best high school girls rugby sevens team. The Panthers claimed the provincial sevens title in dominant fashion, winning all six of their weekend games at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium while out-scoring their opponents 218-5 along the way. “What makes it more amazing in my mind is, we only had one sevens practice,” Panthers head coach
Peter Cannon noted with a chuckle. “These girls, they really adapted to the style of rugby. “If I had to say one thing we did better than anybody else, it was our defensive pressure. We scored many points by forcing the opposition into making mistakes and capitalizing on them.” The Panthers went 3-0 in pool play on Friday, defeating Lord Byng 45-5, Kwantlen Park 44-0 and Semiahmoo 30-0.

Pilots at bay for much of the final frame. At the other end of the ice, Parker came up with his best save of the game, going left-toright to stone Steven Axford on a two-onone break to keep Abbotsford within striking distance. The Pilots finally broke through with 1:10 remaining, as Matt Genoveseâ€™s point shot pinballed through a maze of legs in front and found its way in. The first OT period settled nothing, but early in the second extra session, Lamb fed Lynum at the point, and the rest is history. Abbotsfordâ€™s Brett Kolins was named tournament MVP. The Pilots open the Keystone Cup on Thursday against the Thunder Bay Northern Hawks, the Ontario representatives. The six-team tourney also features the host Saskatoon Royals, the Arborg Ice Dawgs (Manitoba), the Traveland RV Storm (Pilot Butte, Sask.), and the Whitecourt Wolverines (Alberta).

Abby Collegiate’s Arthur scores three tries, earns MVP honours From A15
downed Lord Tweedsmuir 32-0 in the quarter-finals and G.P. Vanier 30-0 in the Cup semifinals. Abby Collegiate capped their run to the championship by crushing
Carson Graham of North Vancouver 37-0 in the final. Lauren Arthur was named MVP of the title game after scoring a trio of tries, while Shelby Pihl, Natalie Teteris, Junnaya Murphy and Tiffany
Picketts notched one try apiece. Picketts tacked on a conversion to round out the scoring. “I’m just so proud of the group,” Cannon enthused. “And they should be proud of themselves, and they
are. It’s just so much fun to see the girls when they’ve accomplished something and they’re so happy.” “It does so much for the girls,” he added. “You can tell them 100 times that they’re good, they’ve got a

chance, just keep working at it. But when they see the results, they start to think, ‘Hey, maybe we do have a chance.’” Robert Bateman Secondary sent two girls teams to the sevens tour-
ney, and both showed well. Bateman ‘B’ blanked Walnut Grove ‘A’ in the Plate final (essentially the fifth/sixth place game), while Bateman ‘A’ lost 22-5 to Elgin Park in the Bowl final (seventh/eighth).
The Abbotsford Heat’s regular season finale was meaningless as far as the standings were concerned, but it was a game Max Reinhart, David Eddy and Nick Tuzzolino won’t soon forget. Reinhart and Eddy both notched their first professional goals, and Tuzzolino scored his second of the game at 1:08 of overtime to lift the Heat to a 5-4 triumph over the Toronto Marlies on Sunday afternoon at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. “The team was elated, that was the coolest thing,” Heat head coach Troy Ward said afterward, reflecting on the milestone goals for Reinhart and Eddy. “The character of this team and how they celebrated was pretty neat.” Afterward, the Heat found out they’ll be facing the Milwaukee Admirals in the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs. The Nashville Predators’ affiliate beat the Heat in three of four meetings this season, but Abbotsford is the Western Conference’s hottest team heading into the postseason, with an 8-0-1 record over the last nine games. On Sunday, with nothing to gain in the standings, Ward rested regulars Ben Walter, Krys Kolanos, Paul Byron, Dustin Sylvester, Jon Rheault, Clay Wilson and Brian Connelly on Sunday. That opened the door for forwards Reinhart and Turner Elson and blueliner Brady Lamb to make their AHL debuts. ICE CHIPS: Q The Heat handed out their regular season awards on Sunday, and Clay Wilson was the big winner, taking the team MVP and top defenceman awards. Dustin Sylvester was named top rookie, Krys Kolanos was the fan’s choice award winner, and Carter Bancks was the community player of the year. Q The Heat-Admirals best-of-five series schedule is as follows (*if necessary): Game 1: Abbotsford at Milwaukee, Friday, April 20, 5 p.m. (all times Pacific) Game 2: Abbotsford at Milwaukee, Sunday, April 22, 3 p.m. Game 3: Milwaukee at Abbotsford, Wednesday, April 25, 7 p.m. *Game 4: Milwaukee at Abbotsford, Friday, April 27, 7 p.m. *Game 5: Milwaukee at Abbotsford, Saturday, April 28, 7 p.m.

Tributes to family and friends
OBITUARIES WALLACE, Grace (nee Pellizzari) Oct. 30, 1962-April 13, 2012
Stobbe, Walter G. Walter died peacefully at the age of 83 on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. He was the third child born to John and Margaret (Derksen) Stobbe on June 1, 1928 in Langham, Saskatchewan. The family settled in the Abbotsford area when Walter was a young child. In 1954 he met and married the love of his life, Eleanor.
RALPH, July Walked into the loving arms of her Savior, April 9th, 2012, at the age of 72. Leaving her to celebrate her journey home are her precious family: husband of 32 years, Dan; children, David Hiebert (Barb), and Cindy Vanderzalm (Lonnie). 7 grandchildren: T.J., Angie, Eric, Cayce, Jack, Brady & Grayson; 1 great grandchild, Ava. Waiting to meet her glory is her son, Keith. Brother, sisters, friends, and family will sadly miss her. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 6th at 1:30 P.M. at Jubilee Hall, 7999 Bradner Road, Abbotsford, BC. Please, no flowers by request.
Following a bus driving career of 13 years in the Fraser Valley, he then successfully farmed a dairy farm and then a chicken farm. Although Walter had many physical challenges, he maintained a strong faith, a positive outlook and a love for life. Walter will be dearly missed by his wife of 58 years, Eleanor (Froese) Stobbe, his children; Diane (Dave) Klassen, Darlene (Ed) Siebert, Richard (Brenda) Stobbe and Teresa Talyson, 9 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Walter was predeceased by one granddaughter, 5 brothers and 2 sisters. He is survived by 7 brothers, 3 sisters and many nieces and nephews.
Passed away peacefully at Abbotsford, BC, after a courageous battle with cancer. Grace is survived by Lyle, her loving husband of 30 years, children; Bobby (Stacey), Theresa (Curtis), mother Luisa and father Angelo, brothers; Larry and George (Karolyn). She will be missed by her family, friends, co-workers and the numerous patients that she touched over many years. Grace was loving, kind and gracious and always put others first. Her children were very dear to her heart. Many thanks to the BC Cancer Agency, the Doctors and the Nursing staff in the Tertiary Hospice Palliative Care Unit who made Grace’s last few months comfortable. A Celebration of Grace’s Life will be held on Friday April 20th at 2:30PM at the Clayburn Schoolhouse 4315 Wright Street, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the BC Children’s Hospital.
