Rescue plan ready for Paramount, say fans Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

is now located at the new campus, but now its programs are going beyond nursing and dentistry and into kinesiology with a state-of-theart “human performance” centre. UFV’s soccer team may move from Abbotsford to the Chilliwack campus as a result of the kinesiology program. Evered said the “town square” design of the main building, with classrooms and labs surrounding a central meeting place, also “encourages people to draw together.” He envisions students from the nearby trades centre mingling there with students from the academic side, and the “synergies” that may develop as a result. “It’s those kinds of synergies ... that often lead to exciting new developments,” he said.

A business plan to refurbish the old Paramount theatre to show classic films and more will be unveiled by Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount at a community meeting at the old Arts Centre on Monday. “There has been lots of behind-the-scenes work happening since we were given the 90-day extension,” says Friends of the Paramount spokesperson Laura Reid. “We are very excited about the business plan.” Extensive research was done by the group since March, analyzing similar business ventures before they narrowed in on a “model” they think will work in the downtown core. “The Friends of the Paramount are confident their plan will be a catalyst to bring residents back downtown, not only to watch classic films, but to eat and shop, as well,” said Reid. They still are seeking input and support from Chilliwack residents and businesses and are urging those interested to show up at the meeting. “We’ll be asking the community to help us get the plan going,” Reid said. The old Paramount has been boarded up since November 2010, when Landmark Cinemas gave the land and building to the City of Chilliwack. The group was granted a 90-day extension until June 21 under a new request for proposals to come up with a plan that would save the iconic downtown theatre from the wrecking ball. Council warned when they were being asked to hold off on the demolition that there would

Trades and Technology Centre will lead to “synergies” from which the university will find new ways to serve the Fraser Valley. “I think we’ve done some marvelous things already bridging trades with business,” Evered said, referring to the ability for UFV students certified in a trade to also earn academic credits for a business degree. “We’re going to see new disciplines emerge,” he said, including new developments in health sciences that will lead the way to healthier lifestyles. Evered envisions new programs in food safety and food security and in dietary approaches to managing health problems “Clearly, what we eat is critical to our health,” he said.

The move to UFV’s new $45 million Chilliwack campus is underway this week as officials prepare for the arrival of students in September. The finishing touches on the new campus project — a mix of renovations to the former military engineering school and new building construction — will likely continue over the next couple of months. “We’re at the tail-end of construction,” Craig Toews, campus planner, told The Progress Tuesday, but moving the old campus on Yale Road to the new site at the Canada Education Park is a “major project” in itself. On Friday, VIPs like Advanced

Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto and Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl, will join UFV president Mark Evered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new campus. “It’s a phenomenal facility,” an obviously elated Evered said Wednesday. “It’s our opportunity to reach the state-of-the-art facility for the kinds of programs we’re establishing in Chilliwack.” And the new campus is just the start of a “master plan” that envisions further building projects over the next 30 years. “This is really just the start of development on the whole 85 acres,” Evered said. He’s also confident that consolidating UFV’s Chilliwack facilities — the new campus is just a short walk from the existing $21-million

School district to boost spending in 2012-13 Greg Knill The Progress The Chilliwack school district will draw down its surplus by $1.7 million to add staff, support vulnerable students and embark on an ambitious technical upgrade of all schools, trustees heard Tuesday evening. The district plans to spend just over $112 million in the 2012-13 school year, said secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice – $2.2 million more than it expects to in 2011-12. Some of that difference will be made up through a projected enrollment increase of 42 students. However, $1.7 million will come from the district’s accumulated

surplus, leaving it with $4.3 million by the end of next year. Additional one-time funding will also come through the province’s “learning improvement fund.” (That money – $1.4 million intended to address issues around class size and composition – has yet to be allocated because of ongoing discussions between district administrators, the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association and CUPE.) In all, the district plans $3.2 million in “budget enhancements” during the next school year. The biggest single expenditure will be the $1 million upgrade to the district’s computer and information system. The upgrade will enhance network capabilities in all classrooms, and replace aging and obsolete equip-

ment, trustees were told. That will enable teachers to use technology more efficiently in the delivery of educational programs, said assistant superintendent Rohan ArulPragasam. The district will also spend another $600,000 on staffing, either through the hiring of new personnel or the reallocation of existing staff. Vice-principal positions will be added to Cultus Lake and Cheam elementary schools, while the vice-principal position at Little Mountain will be changed to principal. The district’s complement of education assistants, meanwhile, will be bumped up to 198 full-time equivalents – an increase of nearly 19 FTEs.

Overall, the district will spend $97.5 million on salaries and benefits in 2012-13 – roughly 87 per cent of its budget. District staff is also recommending the purchase of two work trucks, and an upgrade of the athletic field at Sardis secondary. This winter’s severe weather highlighted deficiencies within the maintenance fleet, Carradice said, and the Sardis field is in desperate need of repair. Those two items drew the most discussion, with trustees Silvia Dyck questioning the use of operating funds for capital purchases, and trustee Heather Maahs wondering if contracting out the maintenance work would be more efficient than buying new trucks.

Shoring up Carey Point as threat grows High snowpack levels in the Fraser watersheds in the Interior add to flood risk

Arts Centre sale goes through Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Two separate construction projects are wrapping up near the Fraser River in Chilliwack this week, geared to keeping any possible flooding at bay. Farmers and property owners, who are outside the Chilliwack dike protection at Carey Point, are striving to repair the berm that gave way last July. “We need to get this done,” said farmer John van Den Brink. “We all just have to do our best.” He’s one of the property owners working on and paying for the berm project, in the wake of crop losses on his hazelnut farm last July after a prolonged period of high water flooded his fields. The province chipped in $25,000 for the berm, and that amount was matched by the city, and the property owners. The River Forecast Centre said this week high snowpack levels in the Fraser watersheds in the Interior could signal flooding potential if there is a prolonged heat wave or rain.

Work crews pull sheets of black geotextile over a “dirty soil” mix of gravel and clay during the check dam construction at Carey Point (near the east end of Ballam Road) on Tuesday afternoon. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

There’s a warming trend being forecast for the B.C. Interior, and that’s contributing to a sense of urgency in Chilliwack, although the threat is weather dependent. “I’m doing the majority of the work since I have the equipment for it,” van Den Brink said, adding that he’s been assisted by other property owners. They targeted a smaller section of the berm to complete this week, which

measures about a kilometre in total. “It’s not a big piece, but that’s our weakest link right there.” He was waiting for the city to finish its project so he could get in and finish the berm for the unprotected land owners. “A lot of the berm had to be made out of dirt because we don’t have the money for a gravel and clay mixture,” van Den Brink said. “Some farm-

ers can afford to pay into this and some can’t. So it’s a little frustrating.” City contractors are building a “check dam” across Orchard Slough at an estimated cost of about $100,000 to reduce the chance of any strong flows heading toward the city dike. The check dam has a strong core of “dirty gravel,” which is a gravel, silt and clay mixture layered under geotextile, and cov-

ered with rock tailings and larger rip rap. “The check dam should be done by the end of the week and it should be in half-decent shape,” the farmer said. “But the long term solution is the river bank needs to be rocked. This whole year has been a fight to get anything done, so we’re going to try to do what we can now.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

40 YEARS OF SERVING CHILLIWACK & AREA WITH QUALITY FURNITURE

The Chilliwack Arts Centre on Henderson Avenue has finally been sold after being on the market for two years. The takeover date is June 5, and the “sold” sign should be up soon. “It’s an exciting time for us and it means we now can put our energy into other things,” said Rod Hudson, executive director of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council. Some of his duties involved booking and maintenance for the older building. It was purchased by the Arts Council in 1984 and used for various community programming up to today. “It’s something we’ve been looking forward to for some time,” he said about the sale of the building. Arts Council offices and classrooms moved to the Cultural Centre when it opened, and from here on in, they’ll focus on their mainstays, the Bluegrass Festival, Christmas Craft Fair and Film Series. The new owner is the Chilliwack Victory Church, which had been renting out space in a local hotel to hold church services, Hudson said. The last show will be The Last Foxtrot, a Tractorgrease concert being organized for May 18 in the old Arts Centre. “That will be our last show it looks like, definitely the last rock show,” he said. The sale price was not made public. “All I can say is that it was considerably below the appraised value,” Hudson added. The property was appraised at $1.6 million.

Trustees Doug McKay and Walt Krahn, meanwhile, wondered if the school district could partner with the City of Chilliwack to help pay for the Sardis field upgrade. Overall, however, the proposed budget won the support of the majority of trustees. Said trustee Krahn: “I’m just thrilled with what’s been presented here.” Nonetheless, because the budget failed to secure the necessary unanimous support for all three readings at Tuesday’s meeting, it will be brought back for the third and final reading at the next board meeting May 22. Trustees Dyck and Maahs voted against the budget, with Maahs complaining of a lack of public discussion.

We ask our muscles to go through repetitive patterns for us every day. Whether we are sitting at the computer or taking the dog out for a walk, we can develop restrictions that become all too familiar. You know the spots: that knot between your shoulder blades that only a door jamb can relieve, the stiffness in the back of your neck after a long day, and not to mention the achy feet after standing for hours at work! Massage therapy is merely one of many modalities that go a long way in promoting muscle balance, releasing those nasty restriction patterns and even helping you to say goodbye to your door jamb! For those of us who can’t get in to see our favourite practitioner, an old stand- by for those pesky points is a simple tennis ball. Find an open space to lie down or a spare piece of wall and place the tennis ball between you and it. Take your time and remember to breathe as you roll out the offending restriction!

Toews said there are currently a number of different proposals for the 27-acre property on the table, but at the moment there is “no wonderful sale news” to report. “All sorts of pressures are really undoing that whole process,” he said. Proceeds from the sale are part of the funding for the new campus, but “bridging financing” has been obtained in the interim.

R AESIDE

Managing expectations The Conservative government last Wednesday marked one year since it won a majority of seats in the House of Commons. Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged to MPs to continue working on the issues the party campaigned on — reducing and eventually eliminating the deficit, making Canada competitive in the world economy, getting tougher on crime and managing the federal government more efficiently. The Conservatives have now been in power for close to six and one-half years. The first five and one-half were as a minority government, and that taught Harper and his MPs some valuable lessons. One of the most important is to keep the rhetoric to a minimum and concentrate on getting the job done. It is always better to outperform what is expected, rather than trumpet loudly about what you hope to do, and then not achieve it. Harper recently put a toe across the line by claiming that a former NDP leader had opposed the Second World War. While he was correct that CCF leader J.S. Woodsworth opposed the war in 1939 (and immediately lost his post as leader), the NDP itself was not formed out of the CCF until 1961 – 22 years later. Politicians are far better to keep expectations low and make comments that are non-provocative, and deliver more than the public expects. One way to do so is to avoid rhetoric and concentrate on the job at hand. For the most part, the Conservatives have done that. The deficit is steadily getting lower, there is some effort to reduce the size of government, taxes are not being raised and Canada continues to be in a stronger economic position than most countries. A steady and careful approach to government is the best way to continue to achieve results. – Black Press

Oil tanker debate in B.C. sinks to a new low VICTORIA – The B.C. NDP has ramped up its opposition to the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline. First the party formalized objections already expressed by NDP MLAs who have spoken at hearings held by the federal review panel along the B.C. coast. Leader Adrian Dix sent an 11-page letter to the panel, then launched an attack on the B.C. Liberal government in the legislature that emphasized the letter’s top objection. Why doesn’t Premier Christy Clark stand up to Ottawa and protest the abandonment of the long-standing “moratorium and exclusion zone” on oil tankers off B.C.’s north coast, Dix and NDP energy critic Rob Fleming demanded. Clark’s answer was the same one given for many years by federal and provincial governments. The 1972 federal “moratorium”

was directed at offshore oil drilling, not tankers bound for B.C. A separate Canada-U.S. agreement in 1998 calls for U.S. tankers to avoid B.C.’s Inside Passage as they transport Alaska crude oil to refineries in Washington state and further south. I asked Fleming for documentation that shows tankers are banned from B.C.’s north coast. He said it is “fragmented,” which means he doesn’t Tom have any. Nor does FLETCHER the NDP’s heavily footnoted letter to the federal panel offer any source for this assertion. This argument flared up in 2006 after Methanex Corp. shut down its Kitimat methanol plant. Instead of shipping methanol out, a practice that was never questioned, it started bringing tankers

into the Kitimat port loaded with a liquid natural gas by-product called condensate. From there it is sent by rail to Alberta to dilute oil sands crude. This process led to Enbridge’s proposed double pipeline that would send condensate east and diluted crude west. The Dogwood Initiative, one of the multiple U.S.-funded groups that now dominate B.C.’s environmental lobby, rose to protest these early condensate shipments, saying they violate a moratorium on tankers. Wrong, said Don Rodden, superintendent of environmental response for the Canadian Coast Guard Pacific Region. The 1972 moratorium “wouldn’t apply to vessels coming into Canadian ports like Kitimat,” Rodden told the Globe and Mail at the time. The Coast Guard would be the agency legally required to enforce such a tanker ban, if one existed.

As I’ve mentioned before, there are legitimate arguments against the Northern Gateway proposal. This hippy-fantasy tanker moratorium isn’t one of them. Then there is the hypocrisy and pro-U.S. bias that is so clearly evident in the manipulated B.C. debate. The Northern Gateway pipeline would generate as many as 350 tanker trips each year to and from Kitimat. More than twice that many tankers already sail each year through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, past the Gulf and San Juan Islands. Many are heading to refinery complexes at March Point and Cherr y Point in Washington. These supertankers can be seen sailing past Victoria most days. Strangely, this U.S. crude traffic excites no protests. Some of the smaller tankers come in to fill up from the TransMountain pipeline in Burnaby,

whose operator is preparing a bid for expansion. This attracts protests organized by people paid to oppose Alberta “tar sands” oil. Where do urban protesters think we get the gasoline and diesel fuel sold at B.C. filling stations? Do they think it’s all made at the little Chevron refinery in Burnaby, the last remnant of refining capacity in southern B.C.? We could use a serious debate about how B.C. handles petroleum. Instead, we see factually inaccurate claims promoted by U.S. interests to attack Canadian crude only. Our opposition politicians and media mostly just go along for the ride.

Tycrop an important employer I would like to ask the people of Chilliwack to keep a positive mindset when reading the various opinions expressed here regarding Tycrop Industries in Rosedale. As a self-employed carpenter, I had the pleasure of doing several small jobs for them in the past. This is a local company that hires locally, shops locally, and provides a decent living (with benefits) for

hundreds of local people. Their employees pay local taxes, shop here, their children go to school here, play sports here, and are probably neighbours of yours. In my dealings with Mr. Mason and Mr. Teichrob, they have been nothing more than upstanding and pleasant. In my opinion, I would hope that Chilliwack does what it can to accommodate this business

to allow it to prosper. There are few other manufacturing facilities that contribute as much to the local economy. The quantity and quality of jobs that Tycrop provides, both directly and indirectly, would be difficult to duplicate should they ever have to relocate.

(ALL WEEKEND LONG)

Putting things into perspective I was in Ashcroft the other day, meeting the Mayor for lunch at the Central Cafe (I highly recommend the perogies) prior to a tourism announcement, when the owner, John, asked me the two questions that I get more than any other. “How’s your Dad?” Very well, thank you. Chuck is in good health, enjoying his ‘retirement’. And, “how do you like the job?” I’m really enjoying it. It is challenging, and it has variety - two things I’d want in any job I was doing. Sure, there are times when one committee meeting seems like another, or Question Period feels like a repeat of the day before, but there are also parts of the job that are surreal. I’ve been fortunate to have two such experiences in the last couple of months. The first came in January, when I was asked to be part of a group welcoming home the Royal Canadian Navy frigate, HMCS Vancouver, and her crew from their deployment off the coast of Libya. Defence Minister Peter Mackay was scheduled to attend, but double pneumonia kept him away.

As a BC MP on the National Defence Committee, I was honoured to be asked to participate. I joined my colleague Wai Young, MP for Vancouver South, and the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Walt Natynczyk, at CFB Esquimalt where we boarded a small ship and headed out to meet the Vancouver at sea. We all provided remarks to the crew, but the General’s comments were the most compelling, and most important, for that brave group of men and women who had left their families and friends behind for a seven month deployment in hostile territory. He thanked them for their service, and he also made sure that they knew to ask for help if they noticed any signs of mental illness or post traumatic stress disorder after returning home. It was very powerful to have Canada’s top soldier deliver such a message. When we pulled alongside the dock in Esquimalt, it was a very emotional experience to see the banners, posters, and Canadian flags welcoming home members of the crew. I’ll never forget it.

I also recently had the opportunity to welcome home members of the 3rd Battalion of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (3PPCLI) as they returned home to Edmonton from ten months in Kabul, Afghanistan, participating in the mission to train the Afghan police and army there. As I stood on the tarmac Mark waitSTRAHL ing for them to disembark from the airplane, I was keenly aware of what a privilege it was to be there, along with military commanders, to shake each hand and welcome each person back to Canadian soil. I was particularly pleased to be able to shake the hand of my cousin, Michal, as he stepped off the stairs. I’d shaken his hand at a family gathering ten months earlier, before he departed. At that time, I told him how proud I was of what he was doing, and couldn’t help but tell him to be careful over there. He didn’t know

I was going to be part of the crew welcoming him home and I can still see the shocked look on his face as I think I embarrassed him with a hug in front of his comrades. Welcoming some of Canada’s finest citizens home from service abroad certainly puts things in perspective when I think about my job. Yes, it’s hard to be away from my family each week, but Michal left his family for ten months. And sometimes I get figurative slings and arrows thrown my way, but they don’t bring lasting harm. There was nothing figurative about the hostile attack on the HMCS Charlottetown in Misrata, or the dangerous security environment that the Canadian Army operates in at Kabul. To Michal, members of the 3PPCLI, the Captain and crew of the HMCS Vancouver and all of the other men and women who put on the uniform every day and put themselves in harm’s way, thank you for doing your job so well. Canadians will always take pride in the work that you do. Mark Strahl, MP Chilliwack—Fraser Canyon

News Friends of the Paramount to reveal business plan FRIENDS from Front be no city funds available to help with renovation costs, which are expected to be in excess

of $250,000. To date a community group and a church have committed to using the theatre building, but further details will

be revealed at the May 14 meeting. Some of the Friends of the Paramount got into the building this week and although there are signs of decay, such as a leaking roof and ceiling tiles falling into the theatre, the art-deco influences are intact. “From the extruded aluminum handrails in the lobby to the stainless and glass stream-

lined light fixtures; the original charm still exists under the worn carpets and tired seats. “In the upper lobby, what was the original ladies’ powder room, still sports its Douglas fir built-in lit vanity, where ladies would check their lipstick during intermission.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Oil and Water: Assessing the risk

WITHOUT THE MESS! Giant Bulk Bags of Garden Soil and Bark Mulch delivered right to your driveway, ready to use at your convenience.

Kinder Morgan Canada announced this month that it will seek to twin its Trans Mountain Pipeline that runs through Chilliwack between northern Alberta and Burnaby. The twinning would mean a huge increase in the amount of crude that transits the pipeline, and in the number of oil tankers passing through local waters each year. This second installment of a Black Press series looks at the risks involved. NEXT TIME: A look at the politics of the pipeline, and alternatives.

Workers from Burrard Clean mop up oil from the shoreline at Barnet Marine Park following the 2007 Kinder Morgan pipeline rupture in Burnaby. Although the rupture occurred more than 400 metres inland, oil found its way to Burrard Inlet and ‘tar balls’ were found at several locations around the inlet. CANADIAN PRESS POOL FILE PHOTO

to Stanley Park, to be upwards of $40 billion. And that’s if you can find those responsible to pay up, he noted. While BP and Enbridge were clearly the polluters who had to pay for the cleanups and other costs, in the case of an oil tanker, they’re operated at an “arm’s length distance” from the oil companies themselves, said Weyler.

The common denominator is bitumen crude, a less refined crude thick as molasses that contains additives to allow it to flow freely enough to travel through pipelines. “Of all the crude oil in the world, bitumen from the tar sands is the worst of all,” said Rex Weyler, co-founder of Tanker Free B.C., a group that wants to see oil tankers banned from B.C.’s coast.

water, it separates into gases, creating a toxic cloud that includes toluene and benzene, known carcinogens, Weyler said. Indeed, in Michigan, a large area near the spill was evacuated and hundreds of residents complained of headache, nausea and respiratory symptoms consistent with exposure to crude oil, according to a report by Michigan health officials. What doesn’t go into the air sinks to the bottom of the river or ocean and “suffocates all the fundamental biological organisms at the root of the food chain,” Weyler said. Those organisms, which consume dead matter in the water, provide food for the surviving fish, but they won’t survive for long with the food chain disrupted. As for the cleanup and economic cost of a spill in Burrard Inlet, he noted that estimates for the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico are in the $50 billion range including the cost of compensating the fishing industry and tourism losses. Based on that, Weyler estimates the cost of a spill here, with potential impact on tourism, fishing and shellfish industries, and the damage

Ask an environmentalist what they think of the potential for a massive crude oil spill in Burrard Inlet and invariably they bring up the Kalamazoo River near Marshall, Michigan. That’s where in July 2010 an Enbridge pipeline ruptured, releasing about 19,500 barrels (3.1 million litres) of oil into the nearby river, making it the largest inland oil spill in the history of the U.S. Midwest. More than 18 months later, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continues to struggle to clean up the mess. So what does an inland oil spill three thousand kilometres away have in common with what could happen here in Greater Vancouver? Well, the spectre of an oil spill is being raised in

light of Kinder Morgan Canada’s proposal to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline that stretches from Edmonton to Burnaby. The company has yet to make a formal application to the National Energy Board, but the project is aimed at exports of bitumen crude oil from the Alberta oil sands to China, on supertankers that could hold as much as one million barrels.

“owned independently and registered in ports of convenience,” often under numbered companies managed overseas by lawyers. “They can disappear and their only asset is the ship.” In that case, those billions of cleanup costs will have to shouldered by the taxpayers of British Columbia, he said. Taxpayers not on the hook

Not so, says Bruce Turnbull of Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC), formerly known as Burrard Clean. All such vessels which sail into Canadian waters must have an arrangement with a spill response organization which, on the west coast, is WCMRC. The tankers, which must be doublehulled, are brought into Vancouver harbour by local pilots who know about any hazards that need to be avoided. If there is a spill, and the tanker’s owner walks away, the ship would be seized and WCMRC would tap in to the insurance that tanker companies are required to purchase in advance, Canada’s Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund, Turnbull said. If that insurance runs out, a similar international fund is used. “The taxpayer is not on the hook.” Continued: PIPELINE/ p25

LRB asked to declare teachers action an illegal strike Black Press The province-wide edict of the B.C. Teachers Federation barring teachers from participating in extracurricular school activities should be declared an illegal strike, according to application to the Labour Relations Board. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association aims to strike down the job action on the grounds it violates provincial law. Education Minister George

Abbott said the move reflects concern about the impacts on students and parents of the activities ban, which is forcing the cancellation of some sports events, club activities and class trips. “We’ve been hearing more and more about in some cases months and years that have been put together in preparation for a trip somewhere, for students to enjoy and to learn, and those have been lost,” Abbott said. The BCTF voted to impose the

support and the continuation of extracurricular activities,” it says. Union members are under pressure to comply or risk BCTF disciplinary action, including fines. Meanwhile, the teachers federation is also before the LRB asking that it remove the governmentappointed mediator Dr. Charles Jago from the dispute, on grounds he is biased. “Mediation is ongoing,” Abbott said. “I have heard that the parties have met and that some constructive work has been underway.” He said it was regrettable that the federation is trying to oust Jago without giving mediation more of a chance to work.

“I have not yet concluded that the inevitable outcome is a legislated solution,” he said. “I’d love to see a mediated solution here.” Abbott said the main barrier is the BCTF’s refusal to accept the government’s required net-zero mandate barring any increase in the overall cost of a new contract. The LRB hearing on the illegal strike application could be heard as early as Friday morning. Abbott has previously said that if mediation fails the government will legislate a settlement, likely a two-year contract ending in June of 2013. BCTF representatives were not yet available for comment.

ban on activities April 20, in the wake of a three-day strike in March that ended with the government legislating a six-month cooling off period, under which mediated talks are supposed to continue. The BCPSEA application argues the BCTF has banned an overly broad range of duties that happen outside instructional hours – including ones that are required and not just voluntary – effectively taking away the individual choice of teachers. “The concerted withdrawal of all of these teacher duties has negatively curtailed the services available to students and parents, both in relation to ongoing educational

RCMP seek more witnesses to fatal hit-and-run Robert Freeman The Progress Chilliwack RCMP investigators are looking for additional wit-

nesses to a hit-and-run incident last month that killed a 37-year-old Chilliwack man. “Even though an arrest has been made in

this investigation, police are still looking for anyone who may have witness the incident or took photos,” Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

Darcy Garnot was struck by a vehicle as he walked along First Avenue near Nowell Street shortly before 8 p.m. He died later in

hospital. Sixty-year-old Gary Allain, who just moved here from Alberta, was arrested the next day and charged with crimi-

nal negligence causing death and failure to stop at an accident. Police said the victim and suspect did not know each other.

However, witnesses said the two men were seen having an “altercation” outside a convenience story at the corner of First Avenue and Young Road minutes before the incident. Anyone who saw the hit-and-run or has further information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for a 16-year-old boy last seen at Sardis Secondary school on Monday morning. Douglas Banman is described by police as “easily influenced” and functioning “at an age somewhat young than his chronological age” raising concern about his well-being. Banman had suggested to friends than he was going to Nanaimo or to Calgary to find work, but he has not been heard from since leaving the school on Monday at about 10 a.m. “This is unusual for Doug to be gone for this length of time,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “We are hoping that he contacts his family or friends to advise them of his well-being.” Banman is described as a white male with blond hair and blue eyes. He is 5’9” tall and weighs about 160 lbs. It is unknown what he was wearing when last seen, and there is no photo yet available. Anyone with information on Banman’s whereabouts is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Our Vision: Better health. Best in health care.

Pipeline: Preparing for the worst PIPELINE from p14 WCMRC, which is primarily funded by four major oil companies (Imperial Oil, Shell Canada, Chevron and Suncor) and pipeline operator Kinder Morgan, responds to an average 20 spills a year, he said. They range from small gasoline spills from power boats and incidents involving canola oil, to the 100,000-litre spill resulting from the 2007 rupture of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline in North Burnaby, the largest Canadian incident it has responded to on the west coast. As for how much oil is typically recovered, Turnbull said it’s not 100 per cent, due to a number of variables including evaporation. “Recovery is only part of an overall strategy. Protection and mitigation of damage to resources is a priority.” Generally, the response involves containing spills with booms and collecting the oil using skimmers. If the responsible party requests a wildlife rescue response, as Kinder Morgan did in 2007, WCMRC may manage it or hire a professional organization to work within the response command structure. Wildlife left out of the equation

The problem is, not all responsible parties choose to respond to oiled wildlife, and there are no laws forcing them to do so, said Coleen Doucette, vice-president

of the Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C. “The way policies are written in Canada, wildlife is not part of the environment, no one has to clean up wildlife.” But left out in the wild, not only will oiled birds, otters, seals and other wildlife die, they’ll likely be eaten by predators, continuing to contaminate the environment long after the spill is over, noted Doucette, who is also chair of the animal care committee at Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. Doucette worked for Focus Wildlife, one of only three professional wildlife rescue companies in North America, during cleanup of the 2007 spill in Burnaby. In addition to animals such as seals and otters, waterfowl are perhaps most commonly affected by a spill because the oil removes the natural waterproofing of their feathers, leading to hypothermia. She has helped provide wildlife rescue response in Alberta after spills of bitumen which she says is far worse than conventional crude. “It burns the skin dramatically, much more than a product that’s started to be refined.” Bitumen does more damage and requires more skill to address through a more expensive, specialized and lengthy process, Doucette said. “In a country where there are no regulations, proper funding is

not allotted for wildlife response, it makes it very difficult to now look at needing a more complicated process for rehabilitation when we don’t even have the funding for basic oiled wildlife rehabilitation.” As it is, she estimated wildlife rehabilitation typically costs one to five per cent of overall cleanup costs of an oil spill, if it’s done at all. In addition to a lack of local crews trained in oiled wildlife response, local animal welfare and rescue groups simply don’t have the space needed to accommodate large numbers of contaminated wildlife during rehabilitation, she added. What’s needed is a single large building with good ventilation, and adequate water, electricity and open space. “All those things are really hard to find in one place, oddly enough.” Pipeline track record ‘excellent’

When it comes to economic impact of a major oil spill in Burrard Inlet, the local business community isn’t willing to speculate.

Peter Xotta, vice president of planning and operations for Port Metro Vancouver, Canada’s largest and busiest port, said such a spill hasn’t happened here so it doesn’t have a point of reference to speculate on. The port is involved in moving $75 billion worth of goods annually and is responsible for 129,000 jobs across Canada, 80,000 of those in the Lower Mainland, and $10 billion in GDP, Xotta noted. “So, as relates to our overall mandate, obviously our objective is to make sure all of that activity continues and that there isn’t disruption to any one of those supply chains.” The port has been handling oil tanker traffic for more than 50 years and has some of the most stringent operating practices of vessels around such tankers, he said. When asked if an oil spill would prevent cruise ships and cargo ships from coming and going in Vancouver harbour, Xotta said, “An incident of any kind involves notification

Community ‘Track record is excellent’ RECORD from p25 to other traffic and depending on the circumstances operational plans are modified to deal with that. But once again, we have not had one of those circumstances here and our practices are intended to make sure that doesn’t happen.” John Winter, president of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, was bullish in support of the proposed pipeline expansion. “The track record is excellent,” he said. “Most of the people opposed to it never knew there was tanker traffic in the first place.” He’s not concerned about potential risks of the proposal. “There’s risk in doing everything,” he said. “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.” As for whether the chamber would have concerns about the economic implications of a decision to allow the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion or not, Winter replied, “Only if it’s turned down.”

Physio Fix with

Throwing a curve at shoulder pain Shoulder injuries can be successfully treated with a well structured and carefully implemented rehabilitation program

In the classroom and on the field, UFV students are working in the Caribbean for the month of May. Teaching life skills through physical and health education is the goal of a group of UFV students currently working in Antigua. Throughout the month of May, 18 undergraduate students will be volunteering side-by-side with local educators on the Caribbean island to promote physical and health education in innovative and effective ways through the Champions for Health Promoting Schools program. Consisting of mostly kinesiology and physical education students, the group is being led by kinesiology instructor Joanna Sheppard, along with a research assistant and teaching assistant. Students will be divided into pairs, between six schools, where they will teach for the trip’s entirety. They will be teaching four, 45-minute lessons a day, integrating reading, music, drama, storytelling, art skills, health promotion, critical thinking and goal setting into their lessons. The university is not relying on the limited supplies on the island, but rather brought its own – including chalk, paper, pens, crayons, and stickers for in the classroom. “For the program to be sustainable, we need to bring all of

our own resources because we don’t want to be a burden on their resources in Antigua,” said Sheppard. The undergraduates will also be working outdoors with local students, engaging in sporting activities that will incorporate important life skills with each lesson. “Not only are we getting them physically active, but we’re also doing cognitively effective activities to help them make good life choices,” said Sheppard. The UFV groups brought soccer balls and basketballs to contribute to the most popular

sporting activities on the island. As well, they will be introducing volleyball to the island, thanks to a donation of balls and a net from the UFV athletics department. Several other items, including sporting jerseys, were sourced by UFV students who collected them from their communities, old schools and community centres. Each week on the island, the UFV group will be hosting an event called Unity Games, which combines both physical activities and life skills. Continued: LIFE/ p29

Shoulder Rehabilitation for the Throwing Athlete The repetitive motion of throwing, especially with the overhead throwing motion, is an extremely skillful movement that places extraordinary demands on the shoulder joint. The Fastpitch or Baseball pitcher generates tremendous force that requires a balance between adequate strength, mobility and stability in the shoulder. When this balance is out in the throwing athlete, numerous injuries may occur to the surrounding tissues of the shoulder complex. Shoulder injuries can be successfully treated with a well structured and carefully implemented rehabilitation program. Traditional shoulder rehab includes a phase of rest, control of inflammation and swelling and shoulder specific exercises such as internal and external rotation using exercise bands. The most successful rehabilitation strategies for throwing athletes address the injured shoulder as part of a “Kinetic Chain”, treating the body as a group of interdependent parts, with strong emphasis placed on the legs and trunk regions throughout the rehabilitation process. The goal should be to integrate the legs and trunk into the majority of shoulder specific exercises and treatment as early as possible. Movements that include lunging and squatting while performing shoulder specifics help to address the importance of treating the body as a unit.

Why the Legs and Trunk? The goal for all high level throwing athletes is to generate as much force with their arm as possible. The legs and trunk initiate this force and transfer this force along the Kinetic Chain towards the shoulder and eventually to the hand. Pitchers need to have a strong centre of gravity in order to stabilize and control their arm action throughout the game. An Athletic Therapist or Physiotherapist familiar with throwing mechanics can provide the appropriate feedback and support to allow the athlete to strengthen and control each body segment. The large muscles of the hips and trunk help position the spine to allow for proper shoulder blade and shoulder joint movement. The scapula or shoulder blade is often overlooked in shoulder rehabilitation. Proper scapular strength and stability reduces the demands on the rotator cuff, which is probably the most recognizable throwing injury. Muscles in the neck and upper chest are often tight or overdeveloped in young pitchers and can hinder normal scapular activity.

Rotator Cuff The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder with the primary role of compressing the humeral head in the shoulder socket, and to provide dynamic stability when performing shoulder activity. The rotator cuff is very dependant on strong and stable muscles surrounding the shoulder blade. Exercising and strengthening the rotator cuff without addressing shoulder blade strength and stability could result in continuing shoulder pain and increasing the risk of further injury. The goal of a total body Kinetic Chain throwing program is to successfully progress the athlete through several stages to ensure a safe and powerful throwing motion. If you, the athlete, are able to effectively use your legs and trunk throughout the throwing motion, demonstrate scapular control, and show gains in rotator cuff strength, you are well on your way to mastering sport specific drills. Explosive exercises such as medicine ball tosses and other plyometric activities are the final progressions before the throwing athlete hits the field and gets back in the ball game.

HEALTH from p28 Unity Games is similar to sports days held in Canada, said Nicole Parke, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Unity Games co-ordinator. Taking place each Friday, it will feature a series of stations that allow the kids to work with their peers to build on different life skills â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from decision-making to teamwork. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We simply run through an activity and then ask how the students felt through the decision-making process,â&#x20AC;? said Parke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After they complete the task, we bring them together and go over what they did. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask them what they learned, and how can they apply that to real life.â&#x20AC;?

extremely beneficial to the UFV group. Not only does it help them decide if they want to pursue health education, but it also provides them with perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps show them that our community is a world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more

The power of Tenore in Chilliwack Friday Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Tenore will captivate crowds in the Cultural Centre Friday with the power of timeless music and some sweet three-part harmonies. The earthy voice of Shane Wiebe, the velvety tones of Jason Catron, and the powerful notes of Mark David Williams will fill the room with inspirational music and wellknown hymns. And the audience gets to sing along at key points in the program, too. Wiebe grew up in Abbotsford, but now lives in Stratford, Ont. He is a former Canadian Idol finalist, and he took time to speak to the Progress this week about his experiences, travelling with two other talented singers in Tenore. Tenore was founded by Jill Siemens of Canadian Tenors fame and Sing!, and the trio has been carving out a niche for itself ever since breaking out onto the praise scene last year. “It’s been wonderful,” Wiebe gushed. “We’ve had full houses and sold-out shows since we started.” The trio has been touring in support of their debut album, Sing! presents Tenore, which earned them a slew of Covenant awards from the Gospel Music Association of Canada. “The idea of the audience singing along was conceived in the truly creative mind of Jill Siemens,” Wiebe said.

“She had a vision of three strong tenor voices leading the crowd in the song, not just them performing on the stage, but having the audience join in.” They’re busy raising goosebumps whenever they perform live. Tenore recently partnered with the Watoto Children’s Choir and are also raising funds to help build an orphanage in Uganda. Asked if he has a favourite song on the program, and Wiebe mentioned The Lord’s Prayer. “It’s a song so many people can relate to and it’s associated giving with so much comfort,” he says. “We close the show with it, and it’s very moving.” It’s encouraging music to say the least. “There are so many people who are in a dark place, with so many hurts and stresses. The beauty of this style of music, is that you can’t hear it without having your soul uplifted in some way.” Wiebe sometimes gets accused of being the dramatic one in the trio. “I guess I just wear my heart on my sleeve.” Tenore, May 11, at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Box Office, tickets online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, over the phone at 604-3917469, as well as at Verses and House of James. Price is $25 general and $20 for seniors (service fees included). See www.singtenore.com for more details on the trio.

‘Last Foxtrot’ in the old Chilliwack Arts Centre recently. “I thought it would be cool to put on a sit-down theatre-style show in the big room,” said organizer Jeff Bonner of Tractorgrease Studios. He called it The Last Foxtrot, as a play on words reminiscent of

the The Last Waltz, and Yankee Foxtrot Hotel, which is a Wilco record, he said. “There will be lights, lasers, smoke, rock and folk music, so come on out and celebrate the life of this building and what it has

When we say that the all-new 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the best choice in its class, we’re saying it for good reason. As you’d expect from Toyota, its class-leading combined fuel consumption rating of 4.7L/100KM and 2.5 Litre, 200-horsepower engine gives you both fuel savings and incredible off-the-line power. It also has 371 Litres of cargo space and standard 10 airbags which is a lot more than the competition can say.

Family Services

On Saturday, May 5th, Chilliwack Community Services, in partnership with TD Canada Trust, hosted its 20th annual Salute to Spring gala fundraising evening at the Coast Hotel. This year’s Scottish theme was threaded through from beginning to end. Before being piped into the ballroom for dinner, our 140 guests mingled over cocktails and canapés enjoying the lively music of Damien Brennan and the Gaelic greetings from the Sons of Scotland. An exclusive lamb dinner prepared by award winning chef Tony Heesterman followed The Selkirk Grace made famous by Robbie Burns. Professional whisky connoisseur Marcus Van Albrecht led guests through the exquisite taste of Scotch whisky paired with fine chocolate. Proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction have been designated to the Early Years programs at. A participant in many of those programs shared her personal story of how her and her family’s life changed because of it. Piper Down – the best band west of the Rockies – was the perfect end to a Scottish kayleigh. Kilts were twirling and toes were tapping on into the evening. For those too tired to drive, Mertin GM provided complimentary rides home. All in all, a great time!

“I was VERY impressed with the Gala event on Saturday night and thought that the attention to detail and the professionalism was excellent. As an event planner myself, it is difficult to impress me but I thought it was spectacular. Congratulations on a job well done!” — Donna Dixson, Director of Community Relations, CHHCF

May is LEAVE A LEGACY™ Month Show you care ... today, tomorrow and beyond Leaving a planned gift is like sowing a seed today and reaping the harvest tomorrow. Our philosophy of gift planning is to encourage and assist a planned and systematic expression of the genuine compassion that lies deep within the hearts of most.

Family Services provides a variety of group, counselling, and in-home support services to help stabilize and preserve the family unit and assist people in making positive change in their lives.

ANNUAL GALA DINNER

Hi there, My name is Cheryl (name changed) and I would like to share my story about how Chilliwack Community Services helped me celebrate Mothers Day. I was born in Chilliwack and never knew my father. My mom had lots of problems when I was a child and then she died from cancer when I was 11. During the next 5 years I lived in many different homes, until I had my own child when I was 18. For me it was a miracle that I joined Better Beginnings, and then Families First where I learned how to be a pretty good mom. Up until my baby was born, Mothers Day was “Disaster Day” for me. I hated anything to do with that day. Thanks to Better Beginnings and to my Families First group and Counsellor, I can now celebrate Mothers Day because I know I’m a good mom; not perfect, but I’m a better mom than my own mom, and she would be proud of me. Thanks CCS!

Did You Know?

1. British Columbians use more water than other Canadians.

T__ F__

2. Fats, oils and grease may be properly disposed of down drains or toilets.

T__ F__

3. The best way to achieve a healthy lawn is by watering lightly several times a week.

T__ F__

ANSWERS: 1.True: British Columbians use an average of 426 litres of water per day; the average Canadian uses 329 litres of water per day (nearly double what Europeans use!)* 2. False: Never put fats, oils or grease down the drain - when these substances enter our wastewater they can clog pipes and deplete oxygen in the aquatic environment. 3. False: Watering your lawn thoroughly once per week rather than lightly at a greater frequency will strengthen the roots and promote a greener, healthier lawn.

â&#x2013; 26% of British Columbians have no idea where the water that flows from their tap comes from.* â&#x2013;  The average Canadian uses 329 litres of water per day. However, the average Canadian thinks they only use 132 litres per day.* â&#x2013;  We use up to 50% more water in the summertime when people are watering their lawns and gardens.** *2011 Canadian Water Attitudes Study, commissioned by RBC and Unilever Canada **BC Stats 2009

Repeat for the desired amount of time or reps. Ice Skater: Stand balanced on your left leg, knee slightly bent. Using your arms for momentum, leap sideways and land on your right leg. Pause for a moment to catch your balance and leap back to the left leg. Repeat for the desired amount of time or reps. Plyometric Push-ups: Start in push-up position. Perform a push-up, using enough explosive force on the way up so your hands leave the ground. Repeat for the desired amount of time or reps. An easier version of plyometric push-ups can be done with your hands on a wall or bench. Bunny Hops: Stand behind a line on the ground. Perform a two foot jump forward over the line, landing on both feet. Immediately jump backward over the line. Repeat for the desired amount of time or reps. Because plyometric exercise is high impact, you must adhere to the following guidelines to prevent injury: Thoroughly warm-up prior to starting plyometric exercise. Wear sturdy, supportive shoes. Land softly with knees bent to absorb shock. Pay attention to warning signs of injuries, such as sore joints. Perform plyometric exercises no more than two times per week. Plenty of rest is needed to recover from this type of exercise. If you want to change your fitness routine, incorporate plyometric exercises to strengthen your heart, muscles and burn calories.

Perspectives

Developing empathy in middle schoolers As an adult, you are a powerful force in helping a young person develop the skill of empathy. Opportunities for engaging a middleschooler in conversations happen all the time, once one knows what to be on the lookout for. Let’s imagine that a young person comes home from school with a story about the latest drama that happened in the hallway. A juicy story always involves conflict, and there tends to be a generally accepted “good guy”

and a “bad guy.” But real-life rarely plays out in such simplistic terms. Encouraging the development of empathy can be as simple as asking, “How do you think Sally felt when Jane yelled at her?” Or, “Have you ever liked the same boy as your friend?” Empathy skills are developed in relationships. Whatever the relationship you have with a young person, such as parent-child, teacherstudent, friend-friend, neighbour-paperboy there is an opportunity

for you to model empathy for the young person and also to encourage empathy through kind and thoughtful “wonderings” about how other people may be impacted by events or experiences. Marie Amos, MA, RCC, is a Mental Health Therapist with Child and Youth Mental Health

towards others. All of us have moments of not appreciating what another person may be going through, but encouraging young people to be empathic gives them the impetus to live their lives in a way that is respectful and nurturing of other people. Imagine we have a generation of young people who think things like: “Maybe the owner of this flower pot would feel sad if I smashed it.” Or, “There could be a lot of devastated people if I drink and drive.”

Empathy is the skill of understanding what another person is going through. Jeremy Rifkin, noted economist, and author of “Empathic Civilization” describes the pre-disposition we have to feeling what other people are feeling. Empathy is the reason Marie we feel AMOS happy or sad when we watch a movie. If we can identify with the experiences of people pretending on television, how much more empathy could we feel about the experiences and feelings of people we actually know? The good news is that parts of our brain respond to other people’s experiences (joy, anger, fear) as if it were happening to us, since we are all pre-wired to develop empathy. Everyone feels empathy to varying degrees, but like any skill, the more it is practiced the more proficient one becomes. The middle-school ages (11-15) are a time of extraordinary social and emotional development. It is a season of defining and figuring out oneself, other people, and the world at large. Middle-school aged young people are quite oriented to their peers, but sometimes do not think to apply empathy

The Chilliwack

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Foes become friends with Junior Cascades Eric J. Welsh, The Progress During the season, Jason Kroeker and Stephen Norrish are rivals. Kroeker plays for Sardis secondary school and Norrish for Chilliwack secondary school. The teams play twice per year in the Fraser Valley AAA East, and the battles are fierce. With bragging rights on the line, both teams leave everything they’ve got on the floor. For 40 minutes, Storm players hate the Falcons with a passion. Falcon players respond in kind. The rivalry breeds animosity. Sardis coach Kyle Graves, a former standout with the Falcons, has been the biggest proponent of the rivalry, working to resurrect the ill will that existed during his playing days. He loves to see the teams wage war with the stands full of fans, and makes it clear to his players that losing to CSS anytime anywhere is an unacceptable outcome. CSS players get the same vibe from their veteran coach, Joe Mauro. “For me, I just absolutely despise losing to Sardis,” Norrish says. “You want to claim your territory and be the top dog in Chilliwack. Sardis, they’re the other guys.” The teams played twice last season and the Falcons won both. “The first game, we won by 15 points really early in the season, and that kind of built towards the second game,” Kroeker says. “The second game, I think we won by one point and it was probably the most intense game I’ve ever played in.” “At the end of that game, Hayden Lejeune had a put-back dunk on us,” Norrish says, frowning. “And at the very end, they were up by two and I had a three-point shot opportunity. It left my hand so straight and I was thinking, ‘This is it. This is it.’ Then it hit the back of the rim and came back out. That was devastating.” The two players tell these stories as they sit in the weight room at SSS on a Thursday afternoon. Their seasons ended a couple months ago, with neither team making much noise at the provincial level. Both players want to get better. They want their teams to get better. And in a great twist of fate, their shared goals have them work-

Thrown together in one gymnasium several times a week, these rivals find themselves on the same side. Foes as friends. “Going up against him during the season was different, where I looked at him strictly as competition,” Kroeker says. “Now, we’re on the same team, and I have his back.” Through the Junior Cascades program, these rivals are getting to know each other as people. At the same time, they’re developing a renewed appreciation for each other’s hoops abilities. “You learn more about a guy playing with him than against him,” Norrish said. “You might only go up against a guy a few times during a regular season game and they might be having a really good game or really bad game. But in

practises, you really get to know what kind of player they are.” Norrish viewed Kroeker as a knock-down shooter, the type of guy you don’t want to give extra time or space to. Kroeker viewed Norrish as an all-round player who could dribble, drive and shoot with equal skill. “From our first few practices together, I now know he’s a real good defender,” Kroeker says, adding to the scouting report. “He’s made me look bad a few times. But it’s good. It’s making me a lot better.” A Graves-run practice is focused on fundamentals, with the expectation that players do things until they get it right. Sometimes, that can take a while. Both players grimace when asked about a recent pick-androll drill that seemed like it would never end. “Kyle loves stuff like that, and it wasn’t about making the shot, which is what a lot of us were

their backyard, both Kroeker and Norrish have something to shoot for. Having Graves, an assistant coach at UFV, taking them through offseason workouts in the UFV way can only be beneficial. “You know a lot of stuff that Barnaby (UFV coach Craddock) teaches them, Kyle’s bringing us,” Kroeker says. “And they’ve got to be doing something right to be that good.” Of course, friends will once again be foes next winter as both players return to their high school squads. When next the Storm and Falcons meet, Norrish hopes a summer playing alongside Kroeker will help him to play against Kroeker. “You get to know the player more and it gives you an advantage,” Norrish says. “You can warn your team about what kind of player he is and what skills he has. This’ll be good for that.” Foes as friends. But rivals forever.

focused on,” Kroeker recalls. “It was about staying low and keeping our head up when dribbling. Kyle knows we have to do these little things to be successful.” It’s been more than 20 years since a Chilliwack basketball team made a serious run at provincials. The Storm and Falcons have long lagged behind the perennial powerhouses, even though Chilliwack has no shortage of great athletes. “All the teams that go to provincials, they’re a core group of guys who’ve been brought up since Grade 7 or 8,” Norrish surmises. “In Chilliwack, that hasn’t happened much. Kids get scattered all over the place. A club program like this helps bring the best players together, and makes everyone better.” Whether that leads the Storm or Falcons to provincials is anyone’s guess. But there’s another reason for these players to be here. With Canada’s fourth ranked CIS team (the UFV Cascades) in

Sports Midget AAA Cougars beat Cowichan; keep winning streak alive The Midget AAA Cougars are now on a five-game winning streak after taking both ends of a double-header 7-6 and 5-4 over Cowichan on the weekend. In the matinee game on Saturday the Cougars took an early lead, batting around the order in the second inning. Blake Peeling, Matt Lamb and Evan Kellington did not allow an earned run in the game. In the second inning, with singles from Payton Nerbas and Cody Hartle to lead-off the inning, Ryan Petkau came to the plate. He laid down a beautiful sacrifice bunt and with his speed was able to turn it into an infield single. With the bases loaded Cam Longfellow walked-

in a run, Matt Lamb crushed a deep flyball to left field to bring home the Cougar’s second run. A walk by Blake Peeling loaded the bases again and Derek Riediger then took the second pitch he saw for a fielder’s choice RBI. Joe Pharand finished the scoring with a linedrive RBI on the first pitch he saw. In the twilight matchup, after a scoreless first inning, Cowichan was able to turn two errors into four runs. After running up his pitch count in the second inning, Mike Rogers settled in on the mound to throw another 4-2/3 innings of shutout ball. With the exception of a lead-off walk scoring in the

third inning, the Chilliwack bats were quiet until the fifth inning when they started chipping away at the Cowichan lead. In the fifth inning, following a lead-off single by Keegan McLean, the Cougars got consecutive fielder’s choice ground balls. With two out and Evan Kellington standing on first base, Derek Riediger crushed a double, driving Kellington home. With the noise level rising on the Cougars bench, Rogers shut down the Cowichan bats in the top of the sixth and then led-off the bottom of the inning with a single. With two on after Cody Hartle walked, Coach Dave Riediger put Mike Anderson in the game as a

pinch-hitter. Anderson yanked a long line drive single to left to score Rogers. Keegan McLean finished the scoring driving home Hartle on a hard ground ball that found the hole between the shortstop and third baseman. With the game tied in the seventh, Rogers got the first two batters out before reaching his pitch limit for the game. Evan Kellington took the mound in relief and, with one pitch got a fly ball out to centre fielder Cam Longfellow. Kellington led-off the bottom of the seventh with a single and came around to score on a base-on-balls RBI by Payton Nerbas.

Good nutrition improves sports performance In his third bi-weekly column, Chilliwack Chiefs assistant coach and Xceed Training owner/operator Paul Nicolls discusses how athletes can improve performance by making positive choices in their diet. Proper attention to nutrition is essential for optimal performance for all athletes. Unfortunately, many don’t pay enough attention to it. Competitors willing to put in demanding physical effort in their training can shortchange their gains by making poor choices about what they eat. After a workout and throughout the day many athletes who don’t know better consume sugar y and other processed foods. Paul Unfortunately they often don’t understand the negaNICOLLS tive impact this can have on sports performance. In a world full of choices about what they can eat, future Olympians often pick what’s most available, or sweetest, whether it’s a healthy choice or not. Nutritionists talk about “grams of this” or “calories in that”. Try telling a junior Whitecap in training that he or she needs to eat so many grams of protein per day per kilogram of body mass. It doesn’t work. They may say, “Okay, coach,” before leaving in a bewildered state of mind and continue to eat the way they have always eaten. It’s called a habit.... Fortunately, breaking the nutrition barrier with athletes isn’t impossible if you give them specific things to do. Here are three simple and actionable things related to improving nutrition that athletes can do. 1. Eat something nutritious right after exercise. Have some fruit or nuts. I recommend eating whole foods which are foods that aren’t artificially or processed or chemically engineered. Whole foods typically do not contain added ingredients, such as salt, additional carbohydrates, or fat. Sports drinks are another option. Try choosing one with some protein in it. Eating immediately after a training session is essential. Consuming the right kind of liquid nutrition or a healthy meal provides improved performance benefits. 2. Eat a breakfast that contains protein. Often young athletes either skip breakfast or opt for a bagel or cereal. Both of these are less than ideal. Try to make sure that your triathlete eats breakfast and make sure it has some protein. Foods like eggs or Greek yogurt will improve the quality of what they are eating to start their day. 3. Eat a fruit or vegetable at every meal. The top five sources of calories in the typical American diet do not include vegetables. Don’t let your athlete make that mistake. Have your athlete commit to eating a fruit or vegetable serving at every meal. It is a simple thing for them to do and it will make a positive difference in the quality of their diet. Aim to have your athlete do all three. You can do it. They can do it and the sooner the better. Simple actionable changes will make a difference and improve performance. Simple as 1, 2, 3.

April 10, 1930 - May 7, 2012 Francis Joseph Lemay of Chilliwack, BC, beloved father, grandfather and greatgrandfather, LEMAY passed away peacefully at home. Francis was born in Carbon, Alberta on April 10, 1930. He married Jane (nee MacPherson) in 1953 in Red Deer, AB and moved to Calgary in 1957 where they lived for many years and raised their four children: Debra (Steve) Curry, Candace (Lloyd) Saar, Brad (Lindy) Lemay, Brent (Kim) Lemay. Francis is survived by nine grandchildren: Sean, Tyler Curry; Eric, Nicholas Saar; Jenica (Gord) Copithorne, Jeremy (Suzie) Lemay; Evan, Riley, Connor Lemay and 5 great-grandchildren: Kaelyn, Karly, Ky, Alexandria & Brooke. He started with the Canadian Army Militia on November 14, 1950. He was employed on special full-time duty from January 1, 1956 to June 17, 1961, October 27, 1961 to May 28, 1962 and from June 6, 1962 to June 21, 1962.

He worked as a mechanic and later on as Security for Firestone. He also worked in the construction industry as a carpenter for many years. Francis was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed camping, hunting & fishing. He moved to Chilliwack in 2002, where he spent his last years with his wife, Diane. He loved living near the ocean, mountains and lakes. He was an adventurer by heart who loved life to the fullest. Francis is fondly remembered by many, perhaps best by his very hearty and distinctive laugh. He especially loved travelling and his motto was, “on the road again!”
