Bail hearing for hang gliding pilot delayed Robert Freeman The Progress Unanswered questions swirled outside the Chilliwack courthouse where a hang gliding pilot faced a bail hearing Wednesday. But the answers will have to wait at least until Friday when court officials hope a memory card allegedly swallowed by the pilot deliver themselves up. Meanwhile, the accused, William Orders, the 50-year-old pilot, is being monitored at the Agassiz RCMP detachment. Laird Cruickshank, defence counsel for Orders, consented to the Friday adjournment, but refused further comment outside the courthouse. RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth confirmed X-rays had detected the memory card inside Orders, but could not say whether any artificial means were being used to speed up the arrival of the memory card. She also would not disclose how the RCMP came by the knowledge the memory card had been swallowed, saying that is part of the ongoing police investigation. Owens was charged with obstruction of justice after his passenger Lenami Godinez fell to her death Saturday. But exactly how Godinez slipped from her harness and why Orders apparently compounded the tragedy by swallowing the memory card is still unknown. “It’s a tragic thing at every level,” Donna Dixson said before the bail hearing started Wednesday. “I hope the justice system can find the answer.” Dixson said she met Godinez while working with her at the BC Winter Games secretariat in 2007. “I could not believe it when I saw the headlines,” she said. “It’s just beyond words to think about,” she said. “For me, the hardest part is how awful it would have been for her because she knew (she was about to fall) and she was hanging on ...” Dixson described Godinez as a “sweet” young girl. “I can’t think of anyone sweeter,” she said. “She was just a darling person.” Godinez, 27, died after falling 1,000 feet from the hang-glider piloted by Orders. Investigations by RCMP and BC Coroners Office continue to determine whether the fatal flight was caused by human error or equipment failure. Orders and Godinez launched just before noon Saturday from Mount Woodside near Agassiz. It was Godinez’ first time hang-gliding, an anniversary present from her boyfriend, who was videotaping the flight. But shortly after launch, Orders apparently realized something had gone wrong and Godinez was slipping out of her harness. He was unable to hold onto her, however, and she was unable to hold onto his legs, and tragically she fell to her death.

Reporters surround Chilliwack senior Crown Counsel Lori Stevens following the court appearance of William Orders, the pilot in a hang gliding incident near Agassiz Saturday, where 27-year-old Lenami Godinez fell to her death. The bail hearing was held over until Friday. GREG KNILL/ CHILLIWACK PROGRESS

Transit transformation starts this summer Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The Transit Future Plan for Chilliwack has been in the works for more than a year, incorporating feedback of more than 600 bus riders and non-riders alike. The public consultation phase is over and the draft plan is being circulated to stakeholders. The key change for Chilliwack ridership is a new Yale-Vedder line starting as early as next month, described as a “network spine” with buses arriving every 20 minutes along the way.

There will also be three new routes at 30- or 60-minute frequencies, and priority placed on getting a transit connector established between Chilliwack and Abbotsford. Chilliwack council received the plan at city hall on Tuesday, after getting an update from Michelle Orfield of BC Transit. “Let’s start with the positive,” she said about feedback from the public. “Many were excited to hear we were going to be improving frequencies.” But some critics also expressed frustration with

routes that were streamlined and eliminated to provide that increased “frequency” of 20 minutes, as well as the fact that buses no longer drive into the parking lots to the mall doors but rather drop riders off on Vedder Road. “We are taking all these comments very seriously,” said Orfield, adding that a report addressing the concerns would be forthcoming. Mayor Sharon Gaetz described some of the transit changes as “incremental” since there isn’t adequate fund-

ing available to make all the improvements at once. She said she didn’t want to see anyone “left in the lurch” by the bus route changes, adding that sometimes service agencies and churches can step up to help. “But I’m really excited to be getting on with it,” she said about the plans to implement faster service along Yale-Vedder. The transit plan will now be forwarded on to the transportation advisory committee for approval and comments, before Continued: TRANSIT/ p4

Special Feature

Planned oil surge highlights tanker risks Safety precautions don’t sway opponents Kinder Morgan Canada announced this month that it will seek to twin its Trans Mountain Pipeline that runs through Chilliwack on its way from northern Alberta to Burnaby. The twinning would mean a huge increase in the amount of crude oil that transits the pipeline, and in the number of oil tankers passing through local waters each year. This is the first of a three-part Black Press series looking at the logistics, risks, and politics involved. Jeff Nagel Black Press The Everest Spirit, an oil tanker the length of two and a half football fields, nudges slowly under the Second Narrows Bridge. In its bowels is enough crude oil to fill more than 30 Olympic swimming pools, loading it down so that it sits 13 metres deep in the water, close to the carefully prescribed maximum safe draft for the narrow, shallow channel. The ship is one of 32 tankers that last year loaded crude from Burnaby’s Westridge terminal, the end of an 1,100-kilometre pipeline that runs from northern Alberta southwest across B.C. to the Pacific. But Kinder Morgan, which owns the Trans Mountain pipeline, has big plans to turn the current trickle of oil through Vancouver’s harbour into a gusher. The company announced this month it will seek approval to twin the pipeline and increase its current 300,000-barrel-per-day capacity to as much as 850,000. Some would continue to flow to refineries in Burnaby and Washington State. But export oil bound for tankers is projected to soar from a current 80,000 barrels per day to as much as 550,000 if the project proceeds. The number of tankers filling up in Burnaby could hit 360 in 2016, five times more than the record 69 crude tankers in 2010. That prospect has alarmed environmentalists who worry the risk of a catastrophic spill is increasing and say Metro Vancouverites never signed on to become Alberta’s oil port. “People are terrified about this,” said Georgia Strait Alliance executive director Christianne Wilhelmson. “If an accident happens, we live here. We’re going to lose our orcas. We’re going to lose our salmon. We’re going to lose our businesses that rely on a pristine environment. “It’s simply not worth the risk.” Spill Safeguards

The tankers move in the harbour with extensive safeguards. On this February day, the 249metre Everest Spirit is harnessed

to one tugboat in front of it and two tugs at the rear – together they have enough pulling power to keep the massive tanker on course no matter what might go wrong with its engines or steering. Large loaded tankers must be accompanied by three tugs from Westridge through the Second Narrows and past the Lions Gate Bridge to English Bay. After that, tankers proceed unaccompanied southeast through the Strait of Georgia to Saturna Island, where they’re met again by Vancouver Island-based tugs that accompany them through the currents of Boundary Pass and Haro Strait until they pass Race Rocks and reach the wider waters of Juan de Fuca Strait between Victoria and Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Agencies on both sides of the border watch for any deviation from the defined shipping lane, which largely follows the international boundary. And a U.S. rescue tug based out of Neah Bay can scramble if any ship loses power and drifts towards rocks or shoreline. Many hands and eyes guide the boat on the bridge. The tankers are required to sail with two pilots – highly trained experts on local waters – in addition to the ship’s captain and navigation officer. The pilots, who actually command the vessel, don’t depend on the ship’s instruments – they bring their own laptops for GPS navigation and charting. One monitors instruments and calls out any deviations from the precision course through the Second Narrows, while the other actually steers and monitors other conditions, such as wind and current. If one of the tugs failed, the other two – or even just one larger tug – could control the tanker and tow it to safe anchorage, says Pacific Pilotage Authority president and CEO Kevin Obermeyer. “It really is overkill,” he said. “But it’s overkill for a good reason.” Other regulations also apply. Tankers only move in daylight with a minimum of one mile visibility, at a maximum of six knots, and only pass through the Second Narrows at slack tide.

And loaded tankers have the channel to themselves – all other ships must wait – all but eliminating the risk of collision. “The tankers are probably the most protected species out there,” Obermeyer said. Some of the rules stem from an incident in 1978 when the freighter Japan Erica hit the Second Narrows railway bridge in heavy fog. Pilots train for disaster using simulators, but the pilotage authority has also staged live harbour tests to verify that tugs can indeed control an errant tanker with an engine or rudder failure. Unlike the single-hulled Exxon Valdez, which spilled more than 230,000 barrels off Alaska in 1989, all tankers loading here must be double-hulled. That’s no panacea – doublehulled tankers have also breached and spilled – but it’s another improvement shipping defenders point to as evidence the times have changed. Indeed, through most of B.C.’s century-long history of safely moving oil on water, tankers did not have the benefit of tugs, pilots or modern navigational aids like GPS. That trend is borne out in worldwide tanker accident statistics, which show spills in the 2000s released about a quarter as much oil as they did in the two previous decades and about one twelfth as much as the 1970s. “I would say it’s extremely

safe,” Obermeyer said. “Can I say we would never have an accident? No, I can’t say that.” Bigger, Deeper

So far, the largest tankers loading at Westridge are Afraxmax class tankers like the Everest Spirit, which have a maximum capacity of 650,000 barrels. In practice, they have been loaded to no more than 80 per cent full due to the draft limit – how deep they can sit in the water without coming too close to the seabed in the Second Narrows. Previously, tankers were allowed to load to 12.5 metres, but in 2010 the Pacific Pilotage Authority increased the draft limit to 13.5 metres. Ships haven’t yet loaded to that full depth – they’ve held back at around 13 metres to date – but they’re expected to start going all the way later this spring, allowing more oil to be carried.

coming back to Chilliwack council for final approval. “The Transit Future Plan envisions the Chilliwack Area’s transit network 25 years from now and describes the services, infrastructure and investments that will be required to get there,” reads the executive summary of the plan from BC Transit. Coun. Chuck Stam called it a “much more compact” transit plan, after the meeting. “That’s where there are going to be some growing pains,” he said. “In order to get that 20-minute frequency, we had to realign and reduce some existing routes.” He admits it won’t be perfect. “We can’t afford perfect, but we’re going to get close to it. We ask the travelling public for patience in that regard. “Given our budget, I think they did a good job.” To see the future transit plan, go to http://www. transitbc.com/transitfuture/chilliwack_latestupdates.cfm.

New foundation focused on health, council hears Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The establishment of the Chilliwack Hospital and Health Care Foundation offers both a “challenge and an opportunity,” said Donna Dixson, director of community relations for the foundation. She was in council chambers at city hall on Tuesday to talk about the official launch of the charitable foundation in Chilliwack coming up on May 17. The foundation’s intent echoes the prevention espoused by Fraser Health, she said, which is to “keep people out of the hospital by working to help improve their health.” Part of the challenge comes from sobering sta-

tistics about Chilliwack and Hope populations, which have the “lowest overall life expectancy” and the highest rates of hospitalization in the region due to smoking and other health issues, she said. In getting established in the community, foundation officials have been connecting with a range of stakeholders. “We don’t want to duplicate or make things more complicated,” Dixson said. Existing initiatives in Chilliwack earned praise, and “Chilliwack is already leading the way” in some areas, she said, naming high participation rates in Bike to Work campaigns locally, and Move for Health Week, as well as efforts to open a

Health Contact Centre. She mentioned Healthy Living Day at Sardis secondary and the Mini Med School. The foundation will be “lean and mean” in its approach to administration, as well as “open and transparent and accountable to our donors.” Engaging young people is going to be key. “They need to feel ownership and they need to know their $10 donation matters to us as much as a $1000 donation.” Their mandate is “huge,” Dixson noted, but they choose to view it as an opportunity. “We look forward to working with you as community partners,” she said.

Cheam students set sights on Tennessee The Spitfires are going to Tennessee. The team of five Grade 4 girls from Cheam elementary have won the opportunity to represent Chilliwack at the global Destination ImagiNation competition in Knoxville, Tennessee next month after placing first in both the regional and provincial tournaments held in March and April. But they need help. The cost of the trip is $7,500, which includes airfare, accommodations, and meals. So far, the group has raised $4,000. “We’re in the middle of fundraising mania,” said parent and chaperone Jennifer Torio. This year is the second year The Spitfires have won a spot in Tennessee, but because they weren’t prepared with fundraising last year, they had to bow out. Not this year. Since the start of the school year, the team as been heavily immersed in fundraising initiatives, and has also acquired $2,500 in sponsorships from local businesses and organizations. But they only have less than a month left to go. The global competition is from May 22-26. “This is going to be huge

for these girls,” said Torio. “It’s already provided them with so many great skills and values.” Destination ImagiNation is an after-school creativity and problem-solving program that fosters complex thinking, teamwork and imagination. It teaches brainstorming skills, creative and critical thinking, time management, budget analysis and confidence. Teams can choose between six different challenges, all of which involve an original theatrical component that must be performed in front of a panel of judges. The Spitfires opted for improv. With their challenge, the team is required to research six current, national news stories – no older than one week before a tournament – that they present to the judges at the competition. The judges randomly choose one of the clippings and add another unrelated news story into the mix. The team is given five minutes to develop a skit based on both events. But that’s not all. In the last minute of preparation, the judges will add “a curve ball” that must be integrated into the performance. “No adult is telling them what to do,” said Torio. “It is completely, 100 per cent the kids work.”

Still bigger ships may come if Kinder Morgan twins the pipeline. The company has indicated it may seek permission to use giant Suezmax tankers that carry up to one million barrels – half again as much as Aframax tankers. The Second Narrows would have be dredged deeper to accommodate them and shipping authorities say all the other tanker safety requirements would have to be reviewed and possibly strengthened. Dredging would be targeted at the edges of the channel – not actually increasing its maximum depth – and would be subject to an environmental review, according to Port Metro Vancouver harbour master Yoss Leclerc. “We’re not talking about huge dredging volumes,” he said. “We are used to dredging in the river. This is nothing comparable to that.” Nor is it a certainty Suezmax tankers will come if Kinder Morgan twins its pipe. “They could do it with the Aframax,” Leclerc said. “The twinning doesn’t necessarily mean bigger ships are coming here.” Switching to the bigger capacity of Suezmax would be more efficient, cutting a shipper’s cost by about $1.50 a barrel. They’re also preferable for voyages to Asia, rather than

spill there would be disastrous to Swiftsure Bank, an area rich in sea life. The task force report says much has been done to reduce oil spill risks by authorities on both sides of the border. But it says more is still required to improve international coordination of spill responses. B.C. Chamber of Commerce president John Winter said he’s seen nothing yet to justify opposing Kinder Morgan’s plan for expanded oil exports. “The track record is excellent,” he said. “Most of the people opposed to it never knew there was tanker traffic in the first place. “There’s risk in doing everything. If measures are put in place to minimize those risks to the extent possible I would think the review bodies will have no choice but to approve it.” Environmental groups are not convinced, arguing the much greater number of tankers – potentially much bigger ones running deeper in the water than ever before – exposes the B.C. coast to much more danger. “They’re increasing the risk dramatically,” said Wilhelmson of the Georgia Strait Alliance. Nor is there comfort that B.C.’s tanker shipments have been safe to date. “They’ve been lucky,” she said. “So far they haven’t had a spill. We’re overdue.”

California, the destination of most of Vancouver’s exported oil so far. Even if bigger tankers are permitted, smaller Aframax and Panamax ones would continue to come as well, because shippers have to match entry limits at destination ports that don’t take larger sizes. A former tanker captain himself, Leclerc says there are plenty of water ways in the world that are narrower but heavily used by tankers. Gibraltar sees more tankers each day than the Second Narrows does in a year, he said. “What we have here is really the leading edge in terms of safety and security,” Leclerc said. There are other potential danger points along the tanker route. A Pacific States/British Columbia Oil Spill Task Force report in 2011 said there are risks associated with anchorages in the Gulf Islands where tankers might hole up during a storm. It notes a bulk carrier in 2009 dragged anchor in high winds and was blown onto a rocky reef near Mayne Island. “No oil was spilled, but the risk was high,” the report said. Capital Regional District director Mike Hicks argues there’s a serious risk of a collision at the western entrance to Juan de Fuca Strait, where ships converge in a narrower lane and local pilots are not required. He says any

The Progress Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony is champing at the bit to deliver on promises made during her byelection victory. She helped a few constituents in her first week as MLA-in-training, writing letters to BC Elections about some voters confusion over riding boundaries and some voters with children unable to get to polling stations during the April 19 byelection. But O’Mahony will have to wait until she’s officially sworn in later this month before she can really go to work for her constituents. “I’m not sworn in yet, so I can’t participate” in the legislature, O’Mahony explained. She also can’t move into an office of her own in Victoria or hire staff. But O’Mahony said her first week of MLA orientation was “thrilling” and the 18-hour days “just flew by.” “It’s thrilling, it really is,” she said. There’s caucus of experienced NDP MLAs in Victoria willing to lend a hand to O’Mahony and to Joe Trasolini, who won the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding for the NDP. “I’m excited to be part of such a supportive team,” O’Mahony said. “You can really feel the passion and energy of these MLAs and their commitment to fight for the people of the province.” O’Mahony has just a year to prove herself to voters in this traditionally conservative riding before the general provincial election on May 14, 2013.

VICTORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wheelchair ambassador Rick Hansen visited the B.C. legislature Monday as part of his province-wide relay marking 25 years since the completion of his Man in Motion world tour. Hansen presented â&#x20AC;&#x153;difference makerâ&#x20AC;? medals to MLAs, spoke to a reception and then was invited to make a speech to the legislature. The medals represent gratitude, celebration and inspiration for those who have helped their communities, Hansen told MLAs, explaining what

that meant to him once his 40,000-km wheelchair journey was completed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be a young kid from Williams Lake and to be inspired to pay it forward,â&#x20AC;? Hansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To move from a period and a place of despair and to see possibilities and know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to get there on the backs of this province, family friends, community. A healthy and inclusive place where a kid can overcome adversity and then be inspired to wing around the world.â&#x20AC;? Hansen began his 25th anniversary relay in Newfoundland last summer. The relay entered B.C. on March 19 and is passing through 127 communities before concluding in downtown Vancouver on May 22.

Hansen will be travelling from Agassiz to Chilliwack on May 13. Each Relay day concludes with an End of The Day Celebration, which provides the opportunity for communities to come together, recognize their own difference makers, raise awareness about accessibility and inclusiveness as well as inspire a new generation to take action to help make the world a better place. Chilliwack has been selected to host one of these celebrations which will be held next Sunday at Heritage Park starting at 4 p.m. Refreshments and entertainment will be provided while people wait for the final medal bearer to arrive. Hansen said about his journey so far: â&#x20AC;&#x153;To come back 25

years later and to see the kind of response that still is there, and the progress thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been made on the part of local champions and difference makers who have really made that possible, those are emotional moments and truly inspiring.â&#x20AC;? Hansen began his Man in Motion World Tour in March 1985, visiting 34 countries and raising $26 million for spinal cord research. Since 1988, the Rick Hansen Foundation has leveraged that initial effort to $252 million invested in research, accessibility projects and quality-of-life initiatives. For more information about the Chilliwack event, contact Ana Macedo at 604-824-9927, Joldie Hayes at 604-858-0025 or Carolyn Marleau at 604-7932904.

R AESIDE

Free enterprise struggles Is the B.C. electorate truly drifting to the left? The results of two byelections last month might seem to indicate a rise in support for the NDP. But it’s just as likely to be a symptom of resistance to the right-of-centre options offered in the province today. It’s no secret the public is disenchanted with the BC Liberal brand. Where once the party name alone was deemed a sufficient selling point, they have been falling over themselves to remind us that they are “a free-enterprise coalition.” This weekend’s departure of party executive director Chad Pederson and director of communications Jehnifer Benoit to pursue opportunities in the private sector – no matter how vociferous their parting good wishes – can only be viewed by a jaundiced public as further symptoms of the BC Liberals’ slide. The B.C. electorate is angry – angry as much as anything else with a lack of leadership choices. Policy advisers should recognize that when the public blood boils, it’s not a time to expect calm or rational decision-making. Lecturing, or hectoring, the electorate will likely only raise the temperature in the kitchen. It’s not just a B.C. problem. The “Occupy” movement achieved traction internationally because of the unpunished excesses of a group of economic looters. Avarice – and corporate and governmental double-speak – has led to a climate of suspicion surrounding all free-enterprise capitalism, a climate that must be overcome by responsible leadership. Many still recognize that soundly based business success is crucial to the economy, the only sure source of jobs, a proper living wage, and the money to adequately fund much-needed social programs. It is likely that many British Columbians still support free enterprise. It’s just free-for-all enterprise they have a problem with. ~ Black Press

Forest jobs won’t wait for the 2013 election VICTORIA – Sawmill tragedies in Prince George and Burns Lake have brought overdue attention to the larger crisis, as the end of B.C.’s latest pine beetle infestation continues to transform the Interior forest industry. The urgency of the timber supply situation was set out in a couple of high-level documents that were leaked from the forests ministry in recent days. These leaks show several things, one of which is that this is a government in trouble. Someone on the inside forced the unpopular options into the public arena. Cabinet ministers have tried to dismiss the documents as early drafts, but no one has disputed their numbers. A report on mid-term timber supply looks at the four most beetle-af fected areas: Prince George, Lakes (west of Prince George around Burns Lake),

Quesnel and Williams Lake. In recent years B.C.’s chief forester has increased the annual allowable cut of all these timber supply areas substantially to harvest dead trees. In Lakes, the pre-beetle annual allowable cut was 1.5 million cubic metres. Currently it is up to two million, but once the beetle wood is unusable, it drops Tom to 500,000. Even FLETCHER if visual quality rules are relaxed to release more timber, forest employment in the area would go from 1,572 jobs before the beetle epidemic to 521. Prince George’s much larger harvest total is expected to drop by almost half. And around

Quesnel, producers say an economic supply of dead pine will be there for only another year and a half. This document and a subsequent proposal to cabinet set out the options. They include relaxing visual quality areas, oldgrowth management zones and wildlife connectivity corridors. This is not as drastic as it sounds, given that the first areas to be opened up would be those where many of the trees are already dead. Most beetle-affected areas have a substantial proportion of live trees. If decade-old dead trees were subsidized for biofuel use, this would support harvest and hauling of healthy sawlogs along with them. The government is also considering swapping some existing cutting licences to increase wood supply for the Lakes district, to

provide enough long-term supply for reconstruction of the destroyed Burns Lake sawmill. There is also the prospect of awarding unassigned timber to “a single representative of the six First Nations in the Lakes TSA.” Speaking to forest scientists who work in B.C., a couple of things become clear. This pine beetle epidemic may be the largest on record, but it is far from the first. And despite many assertions by former premier Gordon Campbell, it is not certain if this one is the result of a broader climate trend or just a string of warmer winters after decades of fire suppression kept older stands around. Lodgepole pine forests are fire-propagated. The term “old growth” has little meaning in a cycle of natural fires that doesn’t occur in wetter zones. But none of this will mat-

ter much in the urban political debate that is about to ensue. “Old growth” is now a quasireligious notion. International environmental groups have convinced most people that logging is the primary cause of forest loss. In fact, the UN’s “State of the World’s Forests” reports have shown that 95 per cent of global forest loss is due to agriculture. Forest cover is increasing in industrialized countries, which use farmland more efficiently. The B.C. Liberal government needs to make some tough decisions quickly, before next year’s election. The premier’s vow to “create and defend” jobs is about to be tested like never before. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Congratulations to

Search and rescue volunteers deserve our appreciation Just a note to say thanks to all the unsung heroes of search and rescue among us. One of my coworkers, and friend, was called out last week to search, that sadly ended tragically. When we saw him back at work Monday, we could see he was visibly shaken by the event.

Cougar peewees prove fine baseball host I am writing not as the northern rep for B.C. Minor Baseball, but as a coach of the peewee Knights allstar team from Prince George, and asking that you include this note as correspondence for your next board meeting. I would also like this to be forwarded to the Chilliwack Minor Baseball Association and the regional/divisional representatives for B.C. Minor, if you will. We contacted the head coach of the peewee Chilliwack Cougars Peewee AA baseball team, about coming down to play an exhibition series, and that took place this past weekend (April 21-22) at Fairfield Sports Complex. The idea came about after Chilliwack was named host of the peewee provincials, thinking it would be great to see their fields. What is so key to get across is what this means to a northern program like ours, where we don’t get access to our regular fields until May. It puts us behind other programs, and at a serious disadvantage that we have to work very hard to overcome. We have been working out indoors, but this weekend in Chilliwack was the first time we’ve been

able to let the kids run on grass, take fly balls, and take real batting practice. This weekend has extended our season by at least a month, with the preparation put into being field-ready to play in Chilliwack. The series drew players out earlier than usual for pre-season training, and that can only be a positive for our northern program. There are so many great notes about the weekend; I’m not sure where to start. The field was outstanding, has to be the best in the province, and the people who take care of the whole complex are to be commended. Our team is extremely excited to know we will be back in Chilliwack for provincials on the August long weekend. The Chilliwack coach went the extra mile in arranging so many things, with support from his other coaches and an outstanding group of parents. He arranged for us to play other teams – originally supposed to be with Burnaby, they backed out so the Cloverdale Colts team stepped in and were a tremendous opponent, exhibiting class while soundly defeating us 15-3. Our hats were off to them for their skill and sports-

manship. He worked hard to ask teams from Abbotsford and Ridge Meadows to take part as well, but when they declined the Chilliwack team stepped up and played us the other three games, using all players in all situations, and the two teams worked together to focus on fun for the kids while encouraging player health (allowing pinch-runners for players with bumps and bruises, and line-up adjustments to ensure these young arms were properly ready for pitching assignments). On top of this all, the Chilliwack group put on a barbecue for our team on Saturday evening, at the park, serving hot dogs, burgers, all the fixings, fruit and vegetables, refreshments – they not only served our players, they served our parents, grandparents, and other friends and family who made the trip down. We were blown away. What a class operation the coach and the people of Chilliwack proved to be, from beginning to end of this process. Our players and parents could not have been more impressed. Mike and Val, this weekend was perfectly indicative of the kind of

exchanges that can and should take place within our ranks. Certainly, we are used to the travel requirements of playing high-level sports while living in a city like Prince George, and are always open to invitations to travel south of our city to find game action which can be tough to line up with no larger centres close to our home base. Allow me to also use this good news story to let other peewee groups know that we feel we have a competitive team, thanks to an outstanding group of dedicated players and parents, and would welcome any team that is interested in a team-building road trip to Prince George this summer. We’d be so proud to host a team in P.G. for a weekend series, on our excellent fields, with our famous Prince George hospitality – we would only hope to come close to putting on the kind of weekend we so thoroughly enjoyed in Chilliwack. We hope the Chilliwack team itself is able to find a spot in a busy schedule to come to Prince George this summer.

Get ready for the arrival of spring expressed in vibrant musical colours by the members of Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and their special guests on May 26. “The season finale is going to be an eclectic evening featuring beloved pieces,” says CSO music director Paula DeWit. Three special guests will be gracing the main stage of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre with the members of the CSO and chorus. “We are very fortunate to have as our guest conductor, Maestro Les Dala, associate conductor of the Vancouver Opera.” He will be leading the members of the symphony through a mesmerizing musical evening of guest artists and a tribute to the Queen’s 60th jubilee. The concert will open with three movements of the Pastoral Symphony, Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. It’s an ode to the beauty of pastoral country life. “Neophytes can’t help but love this gorgeous piece of music.” Young Artist Contest winner Alexis VandeWeg will be performing her winning solo piece, the wonderful Beethoven Tempest Sonata (Op. 31 No. 2) third movement on piano, with the orchestra. “Bernard Blary, our principal flute arranged an incredible orchestra part to complement the brilliant Beethoven Sonata,” DeWit says. The second half will have a totally different feel to it. “We will celebrate A Night at the Proms and will be joined by award-winning accordion virtuoso Jelena Milojevich.” Milojevich is a celebrated solo accordion player who debuted at Carnegie hall and went on to perform with and collaborate some of the best the world over. Her performances have been described as “an explosion of cosmic sensuality” and she has been praised for her “brilliant virtuosity.” The chorus members will also enjoy belting out a few rousing crowd-pleasers, like Rule Britannia, In a Monastery Garden, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory. Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus presents its Annual Spring Grand Concert Saturday, May 26, 7:30 p.m. in the main theatre of the Cultural Centre, Tickets $25.

The band has been part of naval tradition on the West Coast for decades. Formed during World War II, the Naden Band kept up both civilian and military morale with concerts, dances and radio broadcasts. They played for base ceremonies, monthly church parades and public parades through the streets Victoria and Vancouver. After being cut from the federal budget in 1994, the Naden Band was reinstated in 1997 and since then has continued building a reputation for musical excellence. Naden Band, May 8, at Chilliwack United, 45835 Spadina Avenue. Tickets $25 general, $20 seniors/youth may

This is important and can be a useful tool in stopping bullying and drugs in the schools. I am absolutely passionate about getting this program into the schools and my goal is to have an inschool Crimestoppers program,” she methodically explained. In short, the program never knows you by name, only by a number and they pay rewards for information that proves valuable to an investigation. They work with the RCMP but are separate from them. You can always contact them at 1-800222-TIPS (8477). Life is super busy for Janett who is both articulate and well-versed in her field. With three sons at home and a career turned passion, there’s little time to spare. However, she does find time to enjoy boating, with her family, during the summer while snowboarding in the winter. “I do snowboard but not too often. I wasn’t particularly built for the cold,” she laughed.

Home&Garden

Make Mother’s Day blossom throughout the year Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and many of us are still looking for some inspiration. Well, let me make a few suggestions. There’s scientific proof now that flowers and plants not only make people happy but they are also therapeutic. They make our living spaces a lot more enjoyable as well. The type of plant you give, however, should adapt to Mom’s lifestyle. If she is away a great deal, small tropicals or hanging baskets certainly are not the answer. I would suggest something like an outdoor garden. Larger patio tubs can go a long while between waterings and you know, the addition of a small tree can make quite a difference to a patio. Containers about the size of a half barrel, such as large 50cm cedar tubs or terracotta pots, can make an attractive permanent garden. By using lightweight soil mixes, the weight problem can be minimized. If you add casters to the bottom of the pots, they can be easily moved if necessary, or if you just want to change the perspective. The types of trees that can be used as focal points in the containers are really unlimited, but some of my favourites are the new Japanese willow ‘Hakara Nishiki’ with its variegated white and pink foliage, contorted red filberts, robinia ‘Twisty Baby’ or the many weeping Japanese maples. These

trees change with each season and also leave room for colourful annuals, perennials, bulbs and even herbs to make a wonderful showing all year round. Hanging baskets and colourful patio tubs are a nice gift too, but make sure they are large enough that they do not require daily attention. There are so many being mass produced today, try to find something unique and that has a personal Brian touch. The containMINTER ers need to be a minimum of 16-18 inches across and deep to keep the maintenance down. If you are giving a gift of fuchsias or begonias, make sure they are going to a shady location. Nothing is more disheartening than receiving a gift that you know will have to struggle to survive. Large herb gardens are colourful and a delightful culinary surprise. Why not put together a basic containerized vegetable garden and include the latest compact growing vegetables like ‘Tumbler’ tomatoes, everbearing strawberries, a host of new colourful leaf lettuce varieties and everbearing ‘Rainbow’ swiss chard. Planting a tree for special occasions is not only a nice commemo-

rative gesture, but is also a good environmental plan. This is especially true in urban areas. There are many kinds of trees that are well suited to small gardens, but I have a few suggestions, such as the newer varieties of Japanese maples, Japanese snowbells, beautiful pink and white dogwoods, tree form magnolias and the many new columnar trees like ‘Green Spire’ oaks. Flowering trees that attract birds or butterflies to the yard are wonderful. Buddleias (butterfly bush), especially the new Proven Winners dwarf variety, ‘Lo & Behold’, really do attract all kinds of beautiful butterflies. The fast-growing new orange flowered vine called Campsis ‘Indian Summer’ attracts hummingbirds. Flowering crabapples, like the new disease free ‘Red Jewel’ and the red flowered and yellow fruited ‘Prairie Fire’ have pleasing fall fruits which attract birds. The Korean or kousa dogwood not only has gorgeous blossoms and great fall colour, but also has edible seed pods. There are all kinds of fall berried plants like weeping cotoneasters, espalliered pyracanthas and lingonberries that look great in the landscape by providing winter colour and supplying food for birds as well. Moms enjoy fragrance, and there are all kinds of choices. From the new Proven Winners

Flowering trees that attract birds or butterflies to the yard are wonderful gift for Mother’s Day, says Brian Minter.

compact ‘Bloomerang’ lilac that blooms now and again in fall to the fragrant snowball shrub (Viburnum carcephalum), and from elegant Oriental lilies to oldfashioned English roses, there is much from which to choose. Perennial plants are always appreciated, and peonies, old fashioned hardy orchids (bletilla), ruffled poppies and lavenders are among the most cherished. Water on the patio is now a huge trend. Containers that hold water are quite magnificent filled with floating water hyacinths,

water lilies and a myriad of colourful flowering water plants. All of these suggestions are gifts that will last and for the most part, grow in beauty each year. You might even plant Mom’s gift for her - in the right location of course! Be a little creative this year. It is not only the flowers and plants but also the innovative ways in which they can be used and enjoyed, either inside or out that makes the difference. Add your own special touch, and it will mean a great deal more.

international youth pilot program, which sent her to Zambia in February to work with Women for Change. “WFC hasn’t just impacted hundreds of thousands of lives in these rural communities for over 20 years, but they have impacted lives around the world. They have fought with ever ything inside of them for equality and justice of all people – fought for the five basic rights that most of us in North America aren’t aware that millions don’t have access to.” WFC promotes increased participation of women and youth in leadership and decision making at household, community and national levels; improved sustainable livelihoods; and increased access to basic rights. Helping the cause is something Edel feels

all should be apart of. “They have inspired me that even in poverty we can fight for justice and equality,” the 23-year-old said. “We can put aside our selfish wants and help others that in return will benefit our future, our children’s future. “Life isn’t about who has the biggest house, the most cars. What matters is the positive imprint we leave in the lives we left behind.” Tickets for the WFC fundraiser are $10 at the door, which includes a burger and a drink. A 50-50 draw will be held, as will a silent auction. For more information on Women for Change, visit the website www.wfc.org.zm. As well, Edel is posting regular updates of her journey in Zambia on her blog at www. shaina-in-zambia@ blogspot.com.

Perspectives

Action Builds Community: Consultation on Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Children In just a few short weeks the 19th annual Action Build Community Consultation on Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Children and Youth will be taking place on Thursday, May 17, at City Life Church. Sponsored by the Chilliwack Child and Youth Committee (a unique entity unto Chilliwack which tries to identify and rectify gaps in services for children, youth, and their families), it creates an opportunity every year for those from the community and child and youth serving agencies to come together to communicate, collaborate, and connect. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ignite. Inspire. Involve. Engage.â&#x20AC;? Pretty powerful wordsâ&#x20AC;Śisnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that something we would all love to be a part ofâ&#x20AC;Śigniting, inspiring, involving, and engaging the children and youth of Chilliwack in all of our interactions with them. Attendees typically come from a variety of organizations such as: Ministry of Children and Family employees, community partners from Community Services, Xyolhemeyth, Ann Davis, the Child Development Centre, School district staff, as well as the University of the Fraser Valley, faith community, and Fraser Health Authority among others. Essentially, anyone interested in the health, safety, welfare and well-being of the children and youth who call Chilliwack home. However, everyone is welcome and this year we are hoping to

have more parents and youth attend as their voices really do make the difference. As usual there will be a Eryn resource fair, WICKER hosted by a variety of services and programs for children, youth, and families, time for networking, and break-out work-

shops. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workshops, five in total with an opportunity to attend two, are: Youth Engagement Tool Kit; Involving Families; Engagement 101; Deep Democracy; and Engaging Faith Communities. More information about each workshop can be found on the event page of the website. For the third year in a row there was a Youth Consultation prior to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community consult which occurred last

Friday at the Cultural Centre. Under the tutelage of Steve Esau, addiction counsellor from Chilliwack Addiction and Prevention Services, and Kafui Sawyer, Mental Health Clinician with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, youth were asked to think about strategies for improving our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to mental health, addiction and domestic violence.

Myles has stated previously that he is not his diagnosis, he is not FASD - he simply lives with it. He encourages individuals and society to look at it differently â&#x20AC;&#x201C; instead of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder he challenges us to consider it Faith, Ability, Strength, and Determination. As a successful individual,

with a job, his own home, many friends, he does not consider himself a victim, but a success story.

Dyck leaves Langley for the Lions Langley Rivermen forward and Chilliwack native Darnell Dyck has netted himself an NCAA scholarship, accepting an offer to play for

the Lindenwood Lions of the American Collegiate Hockey Association next season. A veteran of four BCHL seasons, Dyck totalled 19 goals and 46 assists this past season to lead the Rivermen in scoring. Dyck is looking forward to joining the Lions, who are coached by longtime National Hockey League defenceman Rick Zombo. “I am really excited to be going to a winning pro-

gram,” Dyck said, “I feel like it’s a great opportunity and I hope that I can go there and help produce another championship.” Zombo has been following Dyck’s progress and was thrilled to have the 20-yearold commit. “He is a player that we targeted for three years and he has been at the top of our recruiting board for two years,” said Zombo. “He is an instant-impact guy. After

several conversations with him, his coaches and my contacts in the area, I am sure he is going to be a consummate Lindenwood Lion. It’s a big day for our program.” Rivermen head coach Bobby Henderson is equally pleased. “Darnell is very deserving of this scholarship and it will be a great opportunity for him,” said the new Rivermen bench boss. “He

is going to get a good education and play for a very good team and I see him fitting in real well over there.” Lindenwood University is located in St. Charles, Missouri which is just outside St. Louis. The Lions dominated the ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association) Central States Collegiate Hockey League this season, posting a 14-0-2 regular season record.

They advanced to the semi-finals of the ACHA championship tournament before losing 6-3 to the Delaware Blue Hens. Lindenwood played in the championship game the previous four years, winning the title twice. Dyck becomes the only BCHL alum on the Lions roster. He wraps up his BCHL career with 54 goals and 109 assists in 230 games.

Young guns ready to roll

Chilliwack’s Pacific Coast Soccer League women’s team stands at the start of a season they believe holds great potential. The 2012 PCSL championships will be hosted by Chilliwack in July, giving the home side an automatic berth. Chilliwack has twice been a PCSL finalist, but never taken the whole enchilada. Head coach Glenn Wilson believes this could be the year they break through, fielding a roster that is stocked with a healthy mix of youth and experience. “Things are looking really positive,” Wilson said Wednesday morning. “This might be as strong a team as we’ve had on the women’s side, and we’ve always been very competitive.” Wilson is working five rookies into the lineup, fresh-faced youngsters straight out of the U-17 metro level. Goalkeeper Presley Roberts is the

youngest of all at 16 years old. “But she has tons of potential and has shown real well in pre-season training,” Wilson said. “A lot of her teammates couldn’t believe how old she was.” Two more freshmen, Adelle Gaudette and Kirsten Hinloepen, will play as defenders. Wilson describes both as reliable and tenacious and has little doubt they will adapt quickly to the higher level. Up front, Wilson expects big things from striker Carmen Devette. “She is a very intelligent player,” he said. “Often strikers just have to be fast and lethal around the penalty area. But as you progress, you have to know how to evade markers and use the field better, and Carmen has a good head for doing that.” The last rookie is a Korean import, Rachel Yang. “She has grown up with a soccer ball on her feet, and technically she is the most gifted player on the team,” Wilson said. “She’s a left-sided player with bags of skill, and it’s a matter of how quickly she’ll make the transition. With all the players, they all have the ability, it’s just a case of confidence.”

To help them out, Wilson has a full complement of overage players. PCSL squads are allowed five. For veteran leadership, Wilson will be looking to captain Dariann Kloot. “She is in the middle of the pack in terms of age, but she’s been on team the last three seasons. She’s a leader in training. She’s serious about her game, and her work ethic raises the standard of others.” Heather Iverson is a recent addition with a glowing soccer resume. “Heather Iverson has played at the university and women’s metro level and appears to be very versatile player,” Wilson said. The women open May 12 on the road with a tough task, facing the Fraser Valley Action. “It’s always a tough game against one of the better teams, and it will give us a good idea of what we’re up against,” Wilson said. “We think we can be really good this year, and with the finals here in July, we don’t want to just be there because we’re the host. We want to be competitive.” Chilliwack’s home opener is May 13 at Townsend Park (2 p.m.) versus TSS Academy.

McLellan one shot shy of tournament win Getting a grip o

Now that spring is finally here, along with the promise of nice weather, many people are thinking about their golf games. For most golfers, mistakes happen before the first swing of the year. Having the proper hold or grip on the club is crucial in making an efficient golf swing. A proper hold can also help with some ball flight issues you may be having. For a right-handed player, begin by taking the club in your left hand with your thumb pointing to the ground. Have the grip crossing the heel of your palm, and hold the club firmly with your last three fingers. Next, place your right hand on the club, with your thumb pointing down, and your left thumb in the pocket of your right hand. A good check point is to make sure the V’s created by your thumb and index fingers on both hands point between your right ear and shoulder. If the V of your right hand is pointed more toward your left shoulder, you have a weak grip. If you are having difficulty in hitting shots that are fading or slicing to the right, you may want to consider neutralizing your hold so that your V’s are pointed more to your right shoulder. This will allow your hands to square up the club face easier, and hit straighter shots. If you have the opposite problem, and tend to hook the ball more than you would like, double check that your right hand V isn’t pointing too far to the right. This is called a strong grip. Try to bring your right hand more on top of the club. This will reduce the amount of motion on your hands through impact, and thus a little less hook in your ball flight. Next, decide if you prefer the overlap, interlock, or 10-finger/baseball grip. This is determined by the position of your right pinky and left index finger under the club. You can overlap the pinky over the index finger (overlap), lock the pinky and index finger (interlock), or place them side by side (10-finger/baseball). All three of these options are acceptable, and based on personal preference. If you have not done so, try all three to see what feels best for you. Finally, how hard you hold the club, or your grip pressure, is just as important as how you hold the club. Most players grip too tightly, which is detrimental to an efficient golf swing. Be sure to hold the club just firm enough to hang on to the club, with your forearms and shoulders feeling relaxed. Tension is the number one enemy of the golf swing! Before you head to the range to check your hold, I always caution my students, especially experienced players, that the hold is often times one of the most difficult changes to make to your golf swing. Don’t worry if your hold isn’t perfect. Check out how many different ways pros hold the club on tour. Be sure to choose a hold that is both comfortable for you, as well as giving you the ball flight that suits your eye. Jennifer teaches golf to adults and juniors at the Chilliwack Golf Academy. She played professionally on tour for over 10 years, including two years on the LPGA and was also named the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Low Teaching Pro of the Year. She can be contacted at 604-798-9805, or at Jennifer@chilliwackgolf.com

McLellan came within a stroke of winning, shooting a two-under-par 70 to finish in a three-way tie for second place. Colton Dorian and Ian Kim also finished one shot back of the leader, Kevin Ko,

who also won the opening tournament. Ko shot a three-underpar 69 at Sandpiper. There were 10 other players within six strokes of the winner, making for a very com-

petitive tournament. CG&CC’s Kaleb Fisher finished 15th with a 76. CG&CC’s Steven Scurr finished 30th with a 79. Cultus Lake’s Nathan

Bahnman shot an 83 to place 45th. The next round will be at Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Club on Sunday. Chilliwack’s Royalwood hosts May 20.

DYCK Peter George

May 30, 1943 - April 25, 2012 We are sad to announce the passing of Peter George Dyck after a hard fought battle with DYCK cancer. Peter is survived by Virginia, his loving wife of 45 years, sons Peter (Kristy) and Stephen (Leonie), and grandchildren Hailee, Kolby, Chloe, and Sydney. He is also survived by his brothers Frank and Henry, his sisters Mary, Helen, Katie, and Ruth, as well as many brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews. “Big Pete” was born in Neuhorst, Ukraine and his family made its way to Canada when he was 5 years old. He grew up with many hardships, that helped to form the great man he became. Dad and Mom owned a successful construction company in Prince Rupert, and in 1977 all his hard work enabled him to realize his dream of owning a farm, which he operated for 35 years. Dad loved playing basketball, he was able to compete in the BC Winter Games, and he played in a men’s league for many years. His other passion was working in his shop and singing along to the radio while doing custom machining and fabrication, and inventing and engineering many complex projects. When his grandchildren came into his life, he loved to spend time playing and laughing with them. He had a love for good food, especially homemade dishes his loving wife prepared, and enjoyed being the life of the party. A Celebration of Pete’s Life will be held on Sunday, May 27, 2012 from 1-4 p.m. at the Langley Golf and Banquet Hall, 21550 - 44th Avenue, Langley, BC. We would like to express our gratitude to the staff at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital for their compassionate care during this most difficult time. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society; www. cancer.ca British Columbia/ Yukon Territory “He will be greatly missed, and always remembered.” 604-853-2643 Online condolences can be left at www.woodlawnfh-abbotsford.com

Gwen was also predeceased by her brothers, Ted, Reg, Den and Sid. She is survived by her sons Roger Floyd and Nigel Floyd (Melody Jestin) of Chilliwack, as well as cousins, nieces and nephews in Wales, Scotland, England, Spain, and Australia.

PEARSON Harold Skea

Harold Skea Pearson passed away at his residence on April 22, 2012, just two days shy of his 87th PEARSON birthday. Harold was the youngest son of Clifford and Catherine (Kate) Pearson and lived his whole life in Sardis. Until moving to Chilliwack Lifestyles about a year ago, Harold had lived nearly his whole life on the same street in Sardis, growing up in one house on the street and living in two others on the same street after he was married. He worked at Pearson’s General Store in Sardis before running his own business, Sardis Hardware, for 28 years. He then worked for the provincial government at the weigh scales in Laidlaw for 10 years before retiring. Harold was a volunteer fireman for 32 years at the Sardis Firehall. He loved fishing the Vedder and Fraser Rivers, as well as spending time at Cultus Lake. He was an avid sports fan, loved hockey and football, and watched the final Canucks game on April 22nd. He is survived by his wife of nearly 60 years, Dot, his daughter, Jill, and his son, Jay. No service by request.

SEIFERT Betty

It is with much sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandSEIFERT mother after a long illness. Betty passed away peacefully at Heritage Village, Chilliwack on April 14, 2012 at the age of 85. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Lynn (Miyagawa); sons, Keith and Brad; grandchildren, Kristy (Rempel) and Kyle; and greatgrandchildren, Sadie and Mylan (Rempel). Sadly, Betty was predeceased by her husband, Rollie, and her son, Gary. She was born in Saskatoon,

coffeebreak

Saskatchewan, and lived in numerous places across Canada as her husband’s position in management with Henry Birks & Sons required. After his retirement from the firm in 1976, they bought the Spa Motel in Harrison Hot Springs where Betty managed the busy gift shop. However, she still found time to enjoy curling, golf and bridge with the many friends she made in the Harrison/Agassiz community. After relocating to Chilliwack in 1980, Betty made weekly excursions back to continue her bridge and golfing friendships. She loved to travel and spent many happy days in Hawaii, visiting her daughter on Maui or vacationing with Rollie in Waikiki. Although the progression of Alzheimer’s disease gradually curtailed her day to day activities, her gregarious nature and ready smile shone through until her passing. A private graveside service and interment of ashes were held at the Anglican Cemetery on April 28, 2012 with the Reverend Vern Tompke officiating. Donations in Betty’s name may be made to the Alzheimer Society or a favourite charity.
