Tycrop reveals expansion plan for Rosedale Company hopes to consolidate work sites Robert Freeman Black Press Tycrop Manufacturing is getting ready to invest $30 million to clean up it’s “scattered” Rosedale facilities and turn it into one “modern” plant that will improve worker safety and present a more attractive face to the community. Tycrop co-owner Scott Mason said the plant has outgrown its current one-acre site, having doubled its output of equipment like high-pressure pumps for the energy sector over the last four years. He said the plant’s staff of 300 is also expected to double. Co-owner Gary Teichrob said all the plant activities that currently take place outside the buildings will move inside, one of the new buildings to be located on a nearby property in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Teichrob said no application has been made to the Agricultural Land Commission, but “at the end of the day there will be no loss of farm land” plus a “net benefit” to the agricultural community. Mason said the company is working with “a number of different people” in Chilliwack to meet those goals, but declined to identify them at this time. “There’s nothing concrete yet, there’s no firm decisions,” he said. Both men said that residents who are organizing opposition to the company’s intention to apply for exclusion of the farm property are jumping the gun. Teichrob said Rosedale was built around industry, the first being a blacksmith shop that serviced farmers. He said if the expansion plan proceeds, the community will benefit from a more attractive tree-lined plant, with employee parking off local roads and with a community walkway. The company also plans to make part of its new office space available for community services like banking. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Hang gliding pilot released from custody Robert Freeman The Progress Jon Orders, the hang-gliding pilot charged with obstruction of justice after a fatal tandem flight April 28, was released from custody Monday in Chilliwack. Orders, 50, was granted release by a provincial court judge Friday, but remained in custody over the weekend until he perfected $5,750 cash bail and surrendered passport and citizenship documents. Evidence submitted by Crown and defence lawyers at the bail hearing cannot be published by court order. Crown counsel opposed the release, but Judge Roy Dickey said the Crown had not convinced him their concerns were

strong enough to continue holding Orders. “I have determined that the risk can be dealt with in terms of the conditions of his release,” the judge said. In addition to turning in passports and citizenship documents, the conditions included no travel outside B.C., no operation of a hang-glider or paraglider, attend all court hearings in person, no contact with several witnesses and report regularly to a bail supervisor. Lenami Godinez-Avila, a 27-year-old from Mexico, fell to her death during a tandem hanggliding flight with Orders that took off from Mount Woodside just before noon April 28. When police charged Orders had swallowed a camera

memory card that might hold evidence, the story captured world-wide attention and speculation. Order’s lawyer Laird Cruickshank told The Progress after the Friday hearing that his client may want to comment down the road about the media coverage, but “I’m concerned about his emotional well-being; that’s been more the focus than what others are saying about him.” Meanwhile, Orders’ certification as a hang-glider instructor has been suspended by the Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada and an investigation launched. Investigations by the RCMP and the BC Coroners Office continue.

RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said a team of investigators is looking into the case, but she would not comment on possible further charges. “We’ll have to see where the evidence leads us,” she said. “The RCMP priority is exclusively to answer the questions we all have, particularly those of the family,” she said. “They have come to Canada in search of answers to provide some clarity regarding the death of their daughter.” Martin Henry, a master-rated pilot with over 30 years experience, is the lead investigator for the association, with assistance from Jason Warner, the association’s safety chair.

G.W. Graham sports won’t be affected by job action Katie Bartel The Progress Warnings of discipline are not enough to stop G.W. Graham’s athletic director from continuing to provide sports programming outside of classroom hours. Jake Mouritzen has promised athletics will continue at G.W. Graham middle-secondary, regardless of the recent teacher vote to withdraw from extracurricular activities. “Graham Athletics will continue during this difficult time,” Mouritzen said in an email to The Progress. “We will support teacher-coach-

es that choose to coach in their spare time, and we will also support those teachers that choose to not participate in any extracurricular activities during this time.” That statement flies in the face of a warning, issued in last month’s Chilliwack Teachers’ Association newsletter, that teachers could face consequences if they “flagrantly defy” the will of the majority. Such consequences listed included the potential for an uncomfortable work environment long after the political struggle ends; a meeting with the CTA executive to provide a rationale for continuing services; and a hearing with the judicial council, where they could

“receive a sanction that is deemed appropriate by the council of their peers.” “We need to stand in solidarity,” the newsletter reads. But for Mouritzen, the students need to be supported more. “We appreciate this is a very difficult time for everyone, and at this time Graham athletics will support our current student athletes in the system,” he said. The school’s spring athletic program, which includes girls’ soccer, track and field and golf will go ahead as planned. However, they will look “drastically different” depending on the leadership in place.

“Moving forward – short term – we will bring in community support for those teams in need of coaches,” said Mouritzen. G.W. Graham’s football program will not be affected in any way as it has several community coaches involved. Chilliwack secondary is also going ahead with its track and field program with a teacher at the helm. But its girls soccer program was cancelled following the teacher vote. Chilliwack wasn’t the only teachers’ union to advise its members against continuing their volunteer work. Similar letters and or newsletters have been sent out across

the province. But it was a letter from the Burnaby Teachers’ Association that caught the ire of B.C. Education Minister George Abbott last week. The Burnaby letter directed its members to section 44.2 of the BCTF Members Guide, which allows for sanctions against members who act in opposition to collective action – which would include continuing their volunteer work. Abbott was quoted in the Vancouver media as saying the direction was unfortunate and misguided. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

The Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve has gone from a military training site (left) to a prized ecological reserve. SUBMITTED

Heron reserve celebrates 10 years on Saturday Jennifer Feinberg The Progress It’s one of the top tourist attractions in Chilliwack, which may be a little-known fact for some. The Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve has seen a whopping 18,000 visitors come through the doors of the Rotary Interpretive Centre in the decade since it first opened. “But still it’s never crowded,” says Janet Hutchinson, programs and services coordinator at the GBHNR. “It is always peaceful when people are out walking the trails.” The undiked floodplain was transformed from a former military training site into prime wetland habitat in the years following the closure of CFB Chilliwack. “It’s been good for Chilliwack,” Hutchinson says. “Many visitors

have found us online and then decided to stop in when they’re in the area.” People come to the nature reserve from all over the world to marvel at the unique park, with a total of 168 active nests this spring. A volunteer counts the number of active heron nests every year. The chicks recently hatched and will go from chick size to full grown very quickly. “It’s like an airport around here with herons coming and going.” Nesting season begins in March and goes to mid July at the reserve on on Sumas Prairie Road. “But the site is about more than just herons,” Hutchinson says. “Although they are an incredible sight.” In fact there are several species at risk known to be in the area, from painted turtles, Salish suckers or Oregon forest snails, to other

creatures like otters and muskrats. There’s about 100 species of birds that drop in or make their home there. It’s in a vibrant nature corridor that allows these beautiful species to survive. There were only about 50 herons nests originally, when it was a “wet bridging” training site for military engineers. But they’ve thrived and the population has grown over the years. The site offers education and conservation projects, as well as an observation tower and bird blinds. Many locals don’t realize that the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve Society is a not-for-profit organization, she says. The nature reserve was created in 2002 as a City of Chilliwack park, for which the society is a partner through a management agreement. The Rotary Interpretive Centre

was presented to the city by the Rotary Club of Chilliwack in March 2002 and the official opening was held in May 2002. They’ll officially unveil a new tower trail at 1 p.m., along with offering a guided walk. A community art project will see 100 small canvases painted by fans of the nature reserve and will be put together later like a quilt. “It’s for people to express what they feel about the heron reserve, and we’re hoping it’s something we can keep to mark the occasion.” More details on the website at chilliwackblueheron.com. The 10th Anniversary Open House is May 12 at GBHNR starting at 10 a.m. with a guided heron walk, then the anniversary ceremony and reception at 11 a.m. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

It could be a Chilliwack retiree worried about his kin. He desperately wants to know what services are out there for victims of abuse. Or maybe it’s a neighbour who has heard the screams. Or a co-worker who knows someone in trouble and doesn’t know where to turn. Info sessions on domestic violence in the community are starting this week hosted by local RCMP, featuring speakers from key agencies in Chilliwack. The idea is the brainchild of RCMP Cpl. Barb Vincent of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment, who has run similar programs successfully in other communities. “I wanted to host a series that would introduce the different service providers in the community,” she said. “I thought we could be the conduit for those kind of discussions every week.” It can be difficult and confusing for individuals or families who have suffered violence at the hands of a spouse or loved one to seek out the help or resources they need from the varied agencies.

Salmon inquiry weighs risk from habitat protection reform Jeff Nagel Black Press The Cohen Inquiry into the Fraser River’s troubled sockeye salmon stocks is shifting gears to consider last-minute arguments about controversial proposed reforms to the federal Fisheries Act. Participants at the inquir y have been given until May 14 to table their submissions on the impact of the changes that critics say will gut the law that protects fish habitat. “What commission counsel has done is said if something wasn’t in your final submissions that this new bill impacts, you’re welcome to make another

submission and we’ll look at those,” inquiry spokesperson Carla Shore said. The Conser vative government’s budget implementation bill includes the contentious amendments to the Fisheries Act. If passed, the clause protecting fish habitat by banning “harmful alteration, disruption and destruction” of fish habitat will be removed and replaced with one that outlaws “serious harm” to stocks fished by commercial, recreational or aboriginal users. Federal officials have described it as a more practical approach that focuses more on real threats to productive fisheries and less on blanket protection of

riparian ecosystems. No longer would authorization always be required to disrupt any fish habitat, for example, if the planned work doesn’t affect stocks used by any fisheries. Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr, who chairs a coalition of conservation groups with standing at the inquir y, said he and other participants will definitely file their concerns. “It raises the threshold for what is considered to be serious harm to fish,” he said. “Without a doubt we all think this really does strike at the heart of what Cohen should be considering. It has huge implications to our ability to protect salmon.” Orr said he’s concerned the changes

could mean that penalties would only be triggered if fish are killed or there is permanent harm to habitat. The inquir y had already heard testimony that habitat protection laws aren’t well enough enforced as well as questions about the effectiveness of the no-net loss policy – now to be reviewed – that requires habitat lost to development be offset with improvements elsewhere. Justice Bruce Cohen wrapped up commission hearings in late December and had been preparing his findings on how to reverse a long-term decline of sockeye, although a recent extension now gives him until the end of September to deliver them. Ottawa say the changes won’t alter the ban on the dumping

of chemicals or other dangerous pollutants into any water way. Officials also say there are provisions to establish ecologically sensitive areas where higher levels of protection can be required. Fraser Valley farmers recently staged a demonstration in sup-

port of reforms, saying they are too restricted in their ability to clean ditches that have been colonized by fish. The NDP Opposition called the changes a sweeping and inappropriate narrowing of habitat protection. West Coast fisheries critic Finn Donnelly

said the Fisheries Act reforms and streamlining of environmental reviews for big projects show the federal Conser vatives intend to force through new oil pipelines to carry Alberta oil to the Pacific.

If you’re like many Canadians, you spent much of last weekend hunched in front of your home computer, or over your kitchen table, surrounded by boxes and folders of paperwork and receipts. Last Monday at midnight was the deadline to file 2011 income tax returns. Not the best way to spend the last weekend of April. Even with the cool, cloudy weather. Although there will be a payoff, if you’re expecting a refund. About two-thirds of Canadians who file a return will get money back, on average about $1,500. Another 21 per cent will have already paid from deductions the exact amount of taxes they owe, and 12 per cent will have to pay more. And while it sometimes feels like the various levels of government are always dipping their fingers into our back pockets to extract ever more of our hard-earned dollars, Canadians aren’t as tax-burdened as we like to think. Total taxes, including income, sales, corporate, property and other taxes, account for 31 per cent of Canada’s economy. That’s almost three per cent less than the average for other industrialized countries that comprise the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. In France, Finland, Austria, Norway, Belgium, Italy, Sweden and Denmark, taxes add up to 42 to 48 per cent of their economies. Sure, Americans pay less tax than Canadians, but we don’t have to pull out our credit cards every time we visit the doctor or get an X-ray at the hospital. The people of Greece, Portugal, Spain and Ireland also pay less tax, but given the financial crises crippling their economies, that’s unlikely to last. So as you await your refund, or the cheque you had to write to clear, consider it the price we pay for living in a stable, reliable country. ~ Black Press

What will the future hold for plant growth? Plants are proving to be much more sensitive to the nuances of climate change than scientists expected. In a major research project conducted at the University of California San Diego, scientists analyzed 50 plant studies that included 1,634 plant species on four continents. They found that shifts in how plants time their flowering and leafing because of warming temperatures seemed to be much greater than previously estimated by their own warming experiments. The results of the research were published last week in the journal Nature. The UCSD press release written by Kim McDonald stated that plant responses to climate change can have huge consequences for water supply, pollination, crop production and ecosystem health. The shifts in the timing of seasonal changes, something biolo-

gists call phenology, are among the most dependable and visible responses to a change in climate. “This suggests that predicted ecosystem changes, including continuing advances in the start of spring across much of the globe, may be far greater than current estimates based on data from experiments,” said Dr. Elizabeth Wolkovich who Margaret is a Postdoctoral EVANS Research Fellow at UBC’s Biodiversity Research Centre. She led an interdisciplinary team of scientists that conducted the study while she was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Diego. There’s no doubt the seasons are changing and the warming trend, while persistent around

the globe, has local/regional variations. According to NASA, 2011 was the 9th warmest year on record since 1880 and nine of the ten warmest years in the modern meteorological record have occurred since 2000. But, for Chilliwack, 2011 was the coolest year since 1996 mainly due to the coldest February since 1994 and the coolest April to July period since 1964. The warming trend, though, is shifting back. From December to February, mean temperatures in Chilliwack were slightly above normal at 0.25oC above the 30-year average. According to Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada, last month was the warmest April since 2005. Mean temperatures were 0.99oC above normal. And weather patterns are likely to shift again now that the cooltrend La Nina cycle is over and Pacific Ocean currents are in a

neutral pattern. The biologists in San Diego created new global databases of plants’ sensitivity to temperature and how much they shift their timing of leafing and flowering with the shift in warming. Their calculations were done from experiments and then compared to longterm monitoring records. But they found that their experiments under-predicted how quickly plants responded to temperature by at least four times compared to long-term records. Historical records consistently showed that, on average, leafing and flowering advances five to six days per one degree Celsius and it seemed to be consistent across all species of plants and data records. “These findings have extensive consequences for predictions of species diversity, ecosystem services and global models of future change,” said Elsa Cleland, an

assistant professor of biology at UC San Diego and senior author of the study, which involved 22 institutions in Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and the U.S. Scientists have estimated that the world’s average global temperature has risen by 0.8oC since 1900. It could exceed 2oC this century, a threshold that risks weather extremes that could lead to drought, flood, rising sea levels and crop failures. The research opens up many questions on the future health of food chains and ecosystems. Will the growth and flowering of plants responding to a warming world be a lot faster than current models might estimate? How will that affect pollination, the health of habitats, and crop growth at a time when we are already worried about the need to increase food production for the world’s rapidly expanding population?

Two sides to environment story Re: Environmentalism for dummies (B.C. Views, April 17). Tom Fletcher writes: “Diseased fish were displayed, but natural contamination of the Athabasca River was glossed over.” Fletcher is pushing an argument that was proven wrong in 2010. Several years ago, people downstream from the oil-sands plants complained of diseased fish. They also complained of increased cancer rates. People were dying from rare forms of cancer! They blamed both items on pollutants that were put into in the Athabasca River by

the oil-sands plants. The oil companies claimed that the pollutants in the river were naturally occurring. The governments of Canada and Alberta supported the companies. In 2010, a study by David Schindler and others proved that the pollution is indeed caused by the oil-sands industry. At first both governments denied it. But the study was well-funded, well done and produced results that could stand up in court. Both governments conceded that Schindler was correct!

To the emergency ward staff of the Chilliwack Gen. Hospital, a heartfelt thank you, from myself and my wife. The service received from the moment she was admitted on April 26, with what turned out to be a heart attack, right through to discharge was amazing. The care, compassion and concern shown by the nurses, doctors and paramedics was above and beyond the call. Special thanks to nurses, Rose, Shannon, and Mike, to name a few. And to Dr. Jennifer Wilson. My wife is home now and well on the road to recovery. Thank You, Thank You.

We wish to thank everyone who attended the Seniors’ Bursary Banquet on May 2 at the Chilliwack Senior Secondary School. A total of 191 tickets were sold for the event. Teaching Chef Terry McDougall, Chef Sharon Touchet, Judith Booker, their co-workers as well as the culinary arts students did an excellent job of preparing and serving us a delicious meal with all the trimmings. We seniors feel very fortunate to be able to attended these banquets twice a year in May and December. Proceeds allocated to bursaries. We once again say thanks for a great evening.

Suites starting at $1950 mo.

Q

by design.

Why was it necessary for private groups to fund that study? Are our governments not responsible for protecting us from pollutants that cause cancer? Are they not required to protect places such as the Peace Athabasca Delta, and other natural wonders down-stream from the oil-sands? Why were they so quick to side with the companies, when no such study had been done? What have they done to alleviate the situation?

tunity to help someone hungry in Chilliwack. On May 9, volunteers will fan out across the city, knocking on doors and accepting donations for the Salvation Army’s “Give it up for Hunger” food drive. The drive is part of the nationwide Hunger Awareness Week, aimed at restocking food banks across Canada. Every month those food banks aid nearly 900,000 people – among those, 38 per cent are children and youths. Chilliwack is no exception. According to the Salvation Army, last year the local food bank distributed over 7,000 hampers to families in need. It also registered more than 30,000 visits to its “daily staples and produce line.” The Salvation Army soup kitchen, meanwhile, averaged over 30,000 clients during the past five years. “It is not just the

homeless that access our services,” the Sally Ann says, “but young families, single mothers, senior citizens, working families and all those that are financially challenged.” Volunteers will be in neighbourhoods between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday. Residents are asked to have some non-perishable food items standing by to hand off to the volunteers. The teams will then return to the Salvation Army were the food will be packed, stored and redistributed to those in need. If you are not home, or your house is missed, you can still help. Donations can also be made directly to the office of the Care and Share Centre at 45746 Yale Rd., Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For further information call: 604-792-0001 or email careandshare@salvationarmychilliwack.ca

Proud to support our local athletes.

Margit Nance, association executive director, told The Progress last week that “there is total gloom in our flying community.� “It’s just so tragic,� she said. “To say there is deep shock is an understatement.� Nance said this is the first such fatal incident in Canada “and must never happen again.� “One is too many, as far as I’m concerned,� she said. Vancouver Hang Gliding, the business owned by Orders, now advises on its website that passengers should “double check the preparations (for flight) and quiz the pilot for their own safety.� “It is not known yet the exact circumstance that led to the fatal error that caused the (April 28) accident,� the author of the statement writes. “Nevertheless, I recommend to never rush, never pressure to fly, don’t (or accept to be) just a passenger.� rfreeman@theprogress.com

Rick Hansenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey brings him to Chilliwack

WE WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE THAT

Celebration marks 25th anniversary of Man In Motion tour Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Rick Hansen is expected to arrive in Chilliwack late Sunday afternoon to mark the quarter-centur y that has passed since his ground-breaking Man in Motion World Tour by wheelchair. This time around, he has 7,000 people completing the route. The 25th Anniversary Relay has been retracing the Canadian segment of the original Man in Motion World Tour, travelling to 600 communities in a bid to make the world more accessible and inclusive. Chilliwack was also chosen to host an End of Day Celebration on May 13, a free community event marking the Relay at Heritage Park. Hansen will arrive on-site with medal bearer Betty Colk some

time after four p.m./ Colk was nominated by Chilliwack officials to have the honour of passing the medal on to another participant who has made a difference in their community. Colk is a local athlete with the Special Olympics who works at the Community Policing Office, and she is one of 7,000 Relay participants, who will be walking, wheeling or running a leg of the 12,000 km of the route across Canada from Newfoundland to B.C. Earlier that day participants in Agassiz, Harrison, Rosedale, and Chilliwack passed the commemorative medal on to others like themselves along the Relay route. The Rick Hansen Medal was designed by the Royal Canadian Mint and is made of sterling silver.

A Fraser Valley transport trailer stolen four years ago has been recovered in the North Okanagan. A police officer working in the Armstrong area April 20 pulled over a pickup truck pulling a trailer after noticing the 15-foot, 2007 cargo trailer did not have a vehicle identification number. While the driver stated he had borrowed the trailer, the officer continued with his investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was confirmed stolen out of Abbotsford in 2008,â&#x20AC;? said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The officer is working with ICBC on possible charges.â&#x20AC;? A Chilliwack man was arrested. The trailer was valued at $8,000 in 2008 and ICBC compensated the owner for the theft at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trailer was paid off so ICBC owns it,â&#x20AC;? said Molendyk. Molendyk says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible the trailer has changed hands several times since going missing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individuals have a habit of steeling trailers, removing the decals and putting them back on the road as a U-built,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Cara Abrahams is training for the Run for Water, which is helping raise money to bring clean water to one of the poorest regions of the word. SUBMITTED

Running to help a thirsty world A Chilliwack mom is spending quality time jogging along the Vedder River with her young son, hoping to build awareness around the limited water supply of the world. Cara Abrahams, a new resident of Chilliwack, has committed to running the 10 km Run for Water event being held in Abbotsford on May 27. She’s not just running the course, though, she’s also raising money for water projects in southern Ethiopia. Run for Water is an annual event that partners

with Hope International Development Agency, a Canadian-based, non-profit, international development agency committed to helping the world’s poorest families work their way out of poverty. This year’s run will be supporting a water project in the Bonke District of Koshale, and will consist of 18 km worth of pipeline, with seven water points and four cattle troughs. Once completed, it will take an average of just three minutes to fetch water. Quite an improvement

from the district’s current state. Less than 15 per cent of the community’s 8,000 population have access to clean water. Many of the community’s women and children are forced to walk three-to-five hours a day to retrieve buckets of water from a contaminated source – resulting in waterborne diseases, death, and poor education. “It just hit me how our lives here in North America have a lot of water in them – like all people need – but it’s all clean water and hardly thought of,” said Abrahams.

“We wash ourselves, our dishes, our clothes with water. We run it until it’s cool, heat it in the dishwasher to sanitize our dishes, and use it to pressure wash buildings. “But in this region in Ethiopia, water is the focus of the day and dictates the day’s activities.” While Abrahams has been a casual runner for years, she’s only recently discovered the endorphins of racing. Run for Water will be her first 10 km run. “I’m excited about being

able to help raise some money that will go to Hope Development Agency’s work in this region in Ethiopia,” she said. “Wells with clean water will change lives over there and help people live longer.” A donation of $35 will provide a child in Ethiopia with clean water for life. Donations of $20 will receive a tax receipt. Deadline for donating is May 20. Anyone interested in supporting Cara Abrahams can contact her through email at runningcara@gmail.com.

With my background in real estate financing, I can guide you through the buying process with ease. Listings wanted…if you are thinking of selling the market is active…now is a great time to sell. You can count on me to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar! No one sells more real estate than RE/MAX and I am proud to be aligned with Chilliwack’s top selling office. I love to talk with clients and prospective clients and welcome your calls.

People buy a home for a lot of different reasons. They may want to put down roots in a community and create a sense of stability in their lives. Then there are the financial considerations and the “forced” savings that builds up in the form of equity. In addition, the monthly cost of owning a house is usually much more stable and predictable than renting. It may seem like “the impossible dream” to first-time buyers who have to stretch in order to purchase their first home. Many buyers can afford the monthly mortgage payments, but they may have difficulty covering the down payment and closing costs. If you are thinking about buying your first home, contact a real estate professional. Your Realtor can explain all the costs and requirements involved as well as direct you to competitive lending institutions. In the Chilliwack area, a large selection of listings available following a slower market over the winter created an adjustment in prices. This, combined with low mortgage rates available, definitely make this an excellent time to purchase a home. You should also consider the many housing options

I chose real estate as a career because I love helping people make the transition into their new homes and seeing the excitement when they have actually lived there and made it their own. Your satisfaction is my “Top Priority.” Our homes are lifetime investments coupled with strong personal ties. Buying & selling a home ranks among my clients’ most important experiences. I will take the time to listen to your needs and desires and help you every step of the way. I am currently helping many clients purchase and sell and I feel this career is a perfect fit with my outgoing personality and dedication to helping others. I have lived in the Chilliwack and surrounding area most of my life and graduated from Chilliwack Senior in 1985. Call me today to discuss your real estate needs. Driven to move you!

available. If you aren’t sure that you can afford a singlefamily home, there are beautiful condominiums and townhouses with amenities and prices that are designed to appeal to first-time buyers. An important part of a Realtor’s job is to educate prospective buyers about the potential benefits and responsibilities of owning versus renting a home. They can help you determine your purchasing power and show you the best homes in your price range. When you fix up a home to suit your needs and taste, you benefit from the added value of the improvements instead of the landlord! Over the long term, investing in a home today instead of renting will allow the home owner to have paid off the mortgage and be living rent-free. And don’t forget with each mortgage payment you are investing in the largest asset of your lifetime. If you are ready to buy your first home, let your Realtor assist you in making your dream a reality.

Are you looking to buy or sell your Castle, Cottage or Condo? I can help you. To me, everyday is a joy in this business. I believe in doing things properly, honestly and with a sense of humor. With 10 years experience I have learned that personal service is key, and that there is a buyer out there for every home. *My advice for my Buyers is shop until you drop, bring a check list and take notes, and always wear sensible shoes for our home shopping marathons. *My advice to Sellers is price it properly from the start, have a little patience, declutter and clean, and we will bargain hard with buyers. Please call on me if you or someone you know needs a dedicated, experienced Real Estate Professional who loves the thrill of a good hard negotiation.

Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

One Shot, One Life: Lions Measles Initiative Whenever there is a need, the Lions Clubs work together to help ¿nd a solution. They helped the Àood survivors, the victims of the tsunami disasters, the earthquake casualties and others. They have helped restore sight to millions, supplied hearing aids to the hard of hearing and even rebuilt whole villages. If there is a need we are there! And... There is a need where measles are concerned. One shot, one life: Lions Measles Initiative is aimed at providing help to 157 million children worldwide. Routine vaccinations have helped prevent measles in Canada as well as other developed countries. However, this is not the case in developing countries where we average 415 deaths in children daily due to measles. As well, measles is a major cause of childhood blindness. Yet $1 will vaccinate a child for life. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has joined forces with the Lions International to raise US$15 million for this campaign. The Gates Foundation will match $1 for every $2 raised by the Lions to a maximum total of $15 million. In other words, if Lions International raises $10 million dollars, the Gates Foundation will contribute another $5 million. Last year, Lions, with the help of Bill Gates Foundation, vaccinated over 41 million children. This year we are aiming even higher. Unicef predicts that without further help 1.7 million children will die in the next 3 years from this preventable disease. The Mount Cheam Lions will be working towards making a difference. Watch for more on this initiative.

Do-it-yourself deck-building tips decking lines are available with grooves. Once you’ve chosen which decking to use, the next steps are designing and building your deck. While this may sound daunting, there are a number of free online deck design tools available to help make planning easier, and a lot of information that can provide guidance on how to build a deck. Decks can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the types of activities you’ll be using it for - dining, entertaining, relaxing, etc. Home Depot offers an online deck design tool that can help take the guesswork out of planning your deck. It may be helpful to research different designs to see what looks and works best for your yard. Once your new deck is complete, you may find yourself with some leftover materials. Some composite decking can be used in virtually any nonstructural application, including projects like docks and walkways where it’s in contact with the ground or water, making it suitable for a variety of uses. Planter box: Whether you choose to fill it with flowers, ornamentals or edibles, a planter box can brighten your deck and soften the space to help make it more inviting. Storage bench: No outdoor living space is complete without a seat to sit and enjoy it. And when the seat can double as a place to stow outdoor cushions, toys and garden tools, it’s a double duty must-do for your outdoor living area. Doghouse: If you’re a DIYer with a dog, make Fido a place of his own that blends in with your new deck. There are many free DIY doghouse plans available online. Don’t have dog? Consider building a birdhouse, instead.

Looking for a way to enhance the use and enjoyment of your outdoor space? A deck addition may be the solution. A deck creates a designated area for entertaining and relaxing outdoors, while increasing homeowner satisfaction and home value. If you’re a motivated do-it-yourselfer, building your own deck can be a fun and rewarding challenge that saves you money and ensures your outdoor space is tailored to suit you and your home. When planning your deck addition, one of the most important considerations is deciding what materials to use. Today’s advanced composite decking offers a number of advantages compared to wood, PVC and earlier composites, making it an increasingly desirable choice for all types of decking projects. For example, wood-plastic composite decking and railing offers fade, stain, scratch, mold and mildew resistance, an attractive appearance and price, ease-of-use and an environmentally friendly alternative. Wood-plastic composite decking is available in a variety of colors and textures that give it a woodlike appearance without the finishing requirements of sealing, staining or painting, so you can begin enjoying your deck as soon as installation is complete. Since composite decking won’t split or splinter, it’s a choice your children and bare feet will also appreciate. Many composite decking lines also come with complementary railing systems and accessories to make outfitting your deck easier. One popular deck trend is using hidden fastening systems to attach boards to the underlying structure, which offers a nice, smooth deck surface free of screws. To accommodate hidden fasteners, many composite

It’s beautiful outside and the last thing you want to do is spend all of your spare time working on your home when you could be playing or spending time with loved ones. So what home improvement projects offer the biggest bang for your buck, saving you both time and money down the road? As a homeowner, it’s difficult resisting the temptation of a new kitchen or bathroom. But rule No. 1 in the manual of Homeownership 101 clearly states: Invest first in the structure of your home. The second rule of thumb of home improvements is to invest in curb appeal. Whether you are selling, renting or staying for the long haul, it pays to add charm and distinction on the exterior. The exterior of a home is the basis for the first buying decision; this is why investments in curb appeal typically provide a higher payback than other home improvements. Finally, more and more homeowners want homes that are easier to maintain. If you want to spend more time enjoying life and less time working on your home, invest in products such as pultruded fiberglass siding and windows that are nearly maintenance free and can dramatically reduce the time you spend cleaning or maintaining your home. Based on these three critical rules of homeownership, here’s a list of the top five spring home improvements with big pay offs: 1. Replace gutters. Replacing old gutters is an easy way to spruce up a home and reduce the chance of water draining into your basement. 2. Update your siding. New siding can instantly give the appearance of a total home makeover, while also reducing your maintenance costs by choosing fiberglass products. Removing old siding also provides the opportunity to inspect your home for any moisture or critter damage that if left unchecked can lead to significant and costly damage to the structure of your home.

Don’t let garden insects destroy the fruits of your labor Gardeners are familiar with the joy of planting and nurturing flowers, fruits and vegetables to maturity and the bliss of harvesting nature’s bounty. One of the few things that can make that bliss turn into annoyance is an infestation of bugs. While many insects are beneficial to the garden, others can be very destructive. Arm yourself with the facts for handling insects in your garden this growing season. Beneficial pollinator bugs like bees may be welcomed guests, but their destructive cousins can have devastating effects on even the healthiest garden. There is nothing worse than having a cucumber vine wither just before harvesting the first crop, or picking a breath-taking rose just to find it covered with aphids. Aphids, mealy bugs, mites, thrips, slugs, snails and cutworms are some of the most problematic garden insects across the country. Keep these and other pesky insects from “bugging” you and destroying your garden this summer. Know the enemy: Having the ability to identify problem insects in the garden is a big step toward overcoming them. Proper bug identification is key to protecting your plants and veggies. Also check your plants for symptoms to help identify the visitors to your garden. Is something eating seedlings at night? Maybe you have cutworms. Are plants’ leaves looking like lace? Sounds like Japanese beetles. Look around and see what is there. Finding an effective treatment is easy once you know what you are actually dealing with. Plant wisely: Sometimes the simplest bug prevention is using a few smart tips when planting or caring for a garden. Remember to clean up all plant debris at the end of the growing season to discourage insects from wintering over in the veggie patch. Another easy tip is to consider planting flowers

among fruits and vegetables. Flowers look great and will attract beneficial bugs that pollinate, like bees, but will also attract bugs that will eat pests, like ladybugs. Rotating crops can also prevent recurring insect problems. This will discourage last year’s insects that may have wintered over from sticking around because the crop they found so delicious is no longer present. Seek advice: Do not be afraid to ask for help. Local gardeners and extension agents make great resources. Ask around and see what others have used that worked. Your grandma may have used cans to keep cutworms from eating the seedlings in her garden. Simply cut both ends off of some cans and place them around seedlings when transplanting to create a protective barrier from cutworms, slugs and snails while plants are getting established. If your neighbor has had success using rowcovers placed on crops that are targeted by certain local pests, then that may also work for you. Just be sure to leave the covers off for part of the day to allow for pollination. Fight back: When nothing else seems to be working, take serious action by finding the appropriate pest control for your garden and your situation. Home remedies, organic solutions or more conventional means of insect controls in the flower or vegetable garden are all options available. There is no shortage of pest control products at your local garden centre or department store. There are solutions for everything from insects to slugs, so don’t be afraid to ask for assistance to get precisely what you require. Once you are armed with all the right product and information, get out there and defend your garden, lawn and home from invasive insects.

Strongman stars Louis Retief, Carson Allinot and Michael Robinson finished 1-2-3 in the men’s heavyweight division at the Sardis Strongman competition, held last week at Sardis secondary school. Over five days, students in five divisions tested their physical strength in five events; the heavy sled pull, sandbag shuttle, tire flip, sled push and gruelling farmer’s carry. Retief and Allinot actually tied for first place with 33 points apiece, but Retief took top spot with a win in the tie-break tug o’ war. Eight competed in the division. Raphael Olivares was fourth, Ryan Bonner fifth, Brendan Rausenberg sixth, Perry Ross seventh and Luke Majercsak eighth. In the men’s middleweight division, Ben Zalot finished first with 43 points followed by Callum Roy with 40. Brad Fitzsimmons and Ben Kipper tied for third with 37 points apiece. Ten competed in the division. The men’s lightweight title went to Jared Galmut with 53

points, one better than runnerup Karl Krahn. Daren MacLeod placed third at 49 points, one better than fourth place finisher Rob Balazs. Thirteen competed in the division. The men’s flyweight division went to a tie-break, with Clint Mandrell (60 points) taking the tug o’ war contest over Connor Lovely. Rudy Langstaff was third with 54 points. Fourteen competed in the division. An impressive group of nine competed in the women’s division, with Robyn Kempers coming out on top. Kempers produced 44 points to edge Ellie Heuser’s 37. Sarah Muxlow and Tori Kuhn (30 points apiece) settled third with a tug o’ war, won by Muxlow. Shanna Fortnum was fifth followed by Noelle Young sixth, Andrea Almhjell seventh, Jessie Muxlow eighth and Maddie Tetz ninth.

Logan Jantzen (left) relaxes and Bob Fitzsimmons (right) offers motivation as Jordan Toohey pushes the heavy sled at the 2012 Sardis Strongman Competition. Competing in the flyweight division, Toohey had to get the 500 pound sled (approximate) across the Sardis secondary school gymnasium in as little time as possible.

Optimism abundant as Huskers spring camp starts Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Tyson St. James will stroll the sidelines at Townsend Park this weekend for the first time as the head coach of the Chilliwack Huskers. Hired at the end of January, the former Canadian Football League lineman and linebacker has spent the last three months making up for lost time. Given a shortened offseason, St. James hit the phones and roads hard, leaving no stone unturned in his search for junior football talent.

At this weekend’s spring camp, St. James will put faces to the names and see exactly what he’s got to work with. “We’ve been really busy recruiting, and our goal was to have 100 players at spring camp,” he acknowledged. “The reality is when you shoot for 100 you might get 80, but we’ve had most of the players confirm through registration and I’m excited about getting on the field and doing something instead of just talking all the time. ” Taking over a BC Football Conference team coming off back-to-back 0-10 seasons created some recruiting issues for St. James, who had to sell prospects on the upside of the Huskers program. The coach had some candid conversations as he

tried to get players to commit. “It’s one of those situations where you have one conversation where it’s good, then it changes and then it’s good again,” he chuckled. “There’s a lot of water under the bridge from the last five years. What I try to do is provide hope, and once you provide hope it really seems to help.” St. James found many recruits open to the idea that it’s a new era, and the Huskers may not be stuck in 0-10 purgatory forever. “A heard a lot of good things from guys who feel this is something they can help build,” St. James said. “I want these guys to be where they’ll feel comfortable building themselves as people and players, instead

of just plugging in and playing football games. A lot of the conversations were very positive that way.” St. James has players coming from here, there and everywhere. The burgeoning football factory of Prince George continues to send players south. The coach is expecting players from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and he hopes to see a large group of local players as well. The Huskers made a big splash last spring when they got commitments from several graduating Chilliwack midget football Giants. In years past, those players flocked out of town, choosing the Nanaimo Raiders or Langley Rams over their own backyard.

When players like Cody Parray, Dylan Boykowich and Cole Herrmann not only signed with the Huskers but made sizeable impacts in their rookie seasons, it was a sign the local pipeline may be re-opened. “I wouldn’t say we’re completely there yet, because we still have to prove there’s something different and exciting going on here,” St. James noted. “This team came into existence to give those guys an opportunity to play high level football beyond midget. My job is to get these players excited about staying and playing for the Huskers.” The Huskers will be on the field Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. They’ll be back for a second practice from 2 to 4 p.m.

and Sunday practice times are 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3:30 p.m. St. James said no one will make the team out of spring camp, but first impressions can carry through to main camp in the summer. “Spring camp is an opportunity for the players to showcase their athleticism and for the coaches to see if they make sense for junior football,” St. James said. “We’ll be doing a lot of teaching and evaluation drills. We’ll see how they handle themselves on the football field and how they handle themselves off the field. We’re not just looking for quality players, we’re looking for quality people.” Get Huskers information online at chilliwackhuskers. org.

Bantam AA Cougars undefeated at Okanagan Spring Classic Chilliwack managed to chip out a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the 5th, where the team added three more

runs that sealed the 5-0 championship game win. The Bantam AA Cougars will be busy

this week in league play as they play Tuesday in White Rock, Thursday at Fairfield Park against Newton. Next week-

end they play in Ridge Meadows on Saturday before retur ning home to face the Tri City Reds at Fairfield

Sunday afternoon at 3 pm. The Cougars now sport a combined tournament and league

play record of 12 wins no losses and an impressive 110 runs for and only seven runs allowed.

S D 2 EN 201 ER 1, FF 2 O AY M

Chilliwack’s Bantam AA Cougars returned from Kelowna this past weekend with an unblemished record in the Okanagan Spring Classic. The tournament featured eight Bantam AA teams – seven from around B.C. and a squad from Sherwood Park, Alberta. Chilliwack started round robin play in the tournament by trouncing Victoria 13-2 in the opening game on Friday night. The next morning saw the Cougars up early for an 8 a.m. Saturday start against home town Kelowna, where the Cougars put together a second convincing 14-1 win. The Cougars had the day to await a 5:30 p.m. showdown with the Vernon Canadians where once again Chilliwack’s pitching stymied the opposition hitters resulting in a 13-0 win to remain undefeated and take top seed in Pool B into Sunday’s crossover games where they would face the second Kelowna team in a sudden death semi final at 8 a.m. Once again the Cougar pitchers controlled the game by keeping the Kelowna Reds off the score sheet. The game started out as a pitcher’s dual until the Chilliwack hit the sticks in the bottom of the 4th inning, blasting the game open with five runs. They never looked back, winning the game 6-0 and moving on to the finals against a determined Victoria team that had knocked off Ridge Meadow Royals in the other semi final. Chilliwack knew the final against Victoria was not going to be easy as both teams brought out their aces to try to win the title.

✞ Obituaries BUIT Hendrik

GARNOT Darcy

Hendrik Jan Buit passed away on May 3, 2012 at Chilliwack, BC at age 81 years. He was BUIT born July 18, 1930 at Ommen, the Netherlands. Henry is survived by Gertrude, his wife of 59 years; children, Dick (Kathy), Henrietta (Aurel), Marilyn (James) and Lucy (Calvin); 20 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his sons, baby Buit and Jacob Ralph Buit. Visitation was held on Monday, May 7, 2012. Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday May 8, 2012 at 2:00 pm, from the Chapel of Henderson’s Funeral Home 45901 Victoria Ave. Interment was held at Chilliwack Cemetery on Little Mountain. Pall Bearers were Gord Huebert, Gerald Gelderman, Gord Gelderman, Danny Liewen, David Gelderman and Mark Oostenberg.

Aug. 15, 1974 - Apr. 15, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic death of Darcy Garnot. He is survived GARNOT by his creators Larry Sr. and Darlene; his sister Tracy and his brother Larry Jr.; numerous nieces and nephews and of course his beloved children Kaydyn and Kyneesha. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and his grandma Dorothy Garnot. At his side that day was his loving girlfriend Stacy who will forever remain steadfastly by his side. Darcy was a man devoted to his family and friends. He was a man of courage and strength, with a great sense of humour. The measure of a man is what he does with power. Real power is the ability to love and help others with out the need of want or reward. Darcy was the meaning of selfless character, passion and love. Thank you Darcy for all the “Good Times”.
