Alumni bid farewell to Abbotsford Collegiate Former Abby Senior high school to be torn down this fall Tyler ORTON Contributor

“That was a dream, basically, to go back to Abby (Collegiate) and be a teacher and coach, but I never thought that was possible. It was beyond my dreams,” Jinder Sarowa says. A b a s ke t b a l l player at Abbotsford S e n i o r Secondary in the 1980s, he was determined SAROWA to give back to his old high school upon graduating. He eventually returned to work as a teacher and coach for nine years before moving into administration. Now a principal at Robert Bateman Secondary, Sarowa says he’s not disheartened by the fact his old stomping grounds are set to be bulldozed this fall to make way for a new building. He still has one last chance to roam the halls that were built in 1955 as the aging high school prepares to a host a June 2 farewell bash. The goodbye party includes a “jazz cafe” where past students can come into the cafeteria and check out their old composite grad photos. That will be followed by a rugby game, an alumni volleyball game, alumni basketball games, a silent

auction and even one final dance night. Unlike those high school formals, the dance fundraiser will offer some alcoholic beverages to those old enough to partake. Organizer Bruce Campbell says the reason behind this is to draw as many people as possible to the fundraiser to secure as much money as they can for the new school’s projects. This includes an array of trophy cases in the lobby to honour the Abbotsford Collegiate’s history. “All that culture and heritage that was in the old building – in terms of the photos and the trophies – all of that is coming into the new building,” he says. Collegiate teacher Paul Peters is also working with the historical society to create a photographic display tracking the school

over the past six decades. Campbell, who previously worked at Abbotsford Collegiate for 16 years as a teacher and a vice-principal, says an estimated 17,000 students graduated from the school. To him, this means a significant number of people in the community still hold a strong connection to Abbotsford Collegiate. Although not an alumnus, Campbell says he spent the longest period of his professional life walking through Abbotsford Collegiate’s corridors and the impending demolition will definitely affect him. But he insists he’s not saddened by the building’s fate. “It’s kind of like having an old rumpus room versus moving in to a new house that’s got all the bells and whistles,” he says, adding it’s not the building that

makes the school but the people inside. “I don’t have any fear of the culture changing or the spirit changing. The staff and the kids are just getting a new building.” As for Sarowa, he has every intention of giving back to the high school one last time. He’s helping to organize the alumni basketball tournament, which includes five games made of teams representing different decades from the school’s existence. His reasons for organizing the games are pretty straight forward. “I found my passion at that school and my passion was basketball,” Sarowa says, recalling the packed gym when the Panthers faced off against MEI. “There’d be lines outside the door of people trying to come in and watch.” He describes the games he played on the senior team in 1982 as “out of this world,” where the intense atmosphere would give him an incredible boost. “It was just so overwhelming, just the emotion and the spirit in that gymnasium and the noise level,” he says. “It’s been a big part of my life, just like thousands of other grads who’ve gone through Abby (Collegiate) over the last six or seven decades,” Sarowa isn’t looking to the June 2 farewell as if it’s a sad event, but as one last opportunity to appreciate the past.

Sumas Mountain home to first interregional park

The province’s first interregional park will be located on Sumas Mountain. The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) and Metro Vancouver announced on Tuesday an agreement to jointly protect and enhance lands in the Sumas Mountain area for conservation and recreation. The Sumas Mountain Interregional Park will include existing park lands currently managed by the FVRD and also incorporate green space on the mountain’s south and west flanks owned by Metro Vancouver and the City of Abbotsford. Together, those lands span a total of 1,471 hectares in the heart of the Fraser Valley – an area equivalent in size to almost four Stanley Parks. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said the new partnerships will expand opportunities for trails that can link regional park lands with city communities and support the city’s green infrastructure network.

Metro Vancouver’s map of Sumas Mountain shows the boundaries of the new interregional park. “It is important to protect habitat now and create recreation opportunities for the growing populations of Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley,” he said Banman is encouraging residents to spend “some time enjoying the park this summer” and discover its natural beauty, summit views and Chadsey Lake. Sumas Mountain is a prominent landmark that towers over the flat floodplain of the Fraser River and is a destination for hikers, cyclists, equestrians and naturalists. The mountain is

also a biodiversity hot spot. More than 40 species at risk have been identified on the mountain, including the peregrine falcon, mountain beaver and red-legged frog. It is also the cultural home of the Sto:lo and the Sumas First Nation. The announcement does not create new green space – in 2002 the province established Sumas Mountain Regional Park, allocating 1,168 hectares of the east and west flanks of Sumas Mountain through a lease to the Fraser Valley

Regional District – rather it marks the first combined multidistrict park project. Each regional district will be responsible for the management, construction, operation and maintenance of lands within its jurisdiction. The City of Abbotsford has agreed to lease its greenspace to Metro Vancouver to be added to the interregional park. The FVRD will hold tenure on Sumas Mountain Park lands in Electoral Area G. These lands include 715 hectares of land on the western flank. Metro Vancouver will hold tenure on Sumas Mountain parklands in the City of Abbotsford. These lands include 454 hectares of leased provincial land on the west and southeastern flanks, 207 hectares of Abbotsford-owned land on the western and southeast flanks, 67 hectares of Metro Va n c o u v e r - o w n e d land and 28 hectares of land jointly owned by Abbotsford and Metro.

Pastor pleads guilty to sex assault An Abbotsford pastor has pleaded guilty to sexual assault. The plea stems from an incident on Feb. 11 which involved a 15-year-old boy. Patrick Marini, 69, entered his plea in Abbotsford provincial court on Wednesday morning. He was originally charged with both sexual assault and sexual interference of a person under 16. Marini was charged after a teenage boy told his mother about an incident that allegedly

occurred with Marini. The matter was then reported to and investigated by Abbotsford Police. Marini will now undergo a psychological assessment as part of the pre-sentence report, before returning to court on Aug. 28. An online profile describes Marini as a missionary/pastor who has ministered in Canada, the U.S., India, Africa and Europe. He previously lived in Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Senior robbed in her home

Abbotsford Police are looking for a man who robbed a 68-year-old woman. On Tuesday, May 22 at 11:30 a.m. the Abbotsford Police received a call from a man reporting that his mother had been robbed in her home in the 3000 block of Curlew Drive. Moments earlier a South Asian man had knocked at the front door of the victim’s

residence. The woman opened the door and was immediately confronted by the man who communicated in English and Punjabi. The suspect entered the home and remained there until the woman provided him with the cash she had on hand. The suspect fled on foot after obtaining the money. The victim suffered minor injuries to her arm and recei-

OF THE WEEK

Funding Ledgeview

Do you feel safer from crime in this city than you did three years ago?

In regards to this statement: “local government is mandated to provide sports and recreation.” I’m going to limit this discussion to the outdoors, since golf is an outdoor sport. We’ll leave hockey, swimming, and other indoor pursuits off for now. So, fine! Let’s provide sports fields and outdoor recreation opportunities. Let’s see. Soccer/football fields/baseball diamonds? Check. Hiking trails and running tracks? Check. Open to everyone without cost? Check. Golf course? Check. Open to everyone without cost? Well, erm, no. You have to pay to play. So raise the green fees then. City taxpayers should not be paying for an enclave for the wealthy few who golf to be able to go and play. Brian Lang

Ninety years of newspapering, and beyond Andrew

Holota

On Point Abbotsford’s worst blaze in history occurred on Feb. 1, 1976. It wiped out the Fraser Park shopping centre, destroying 19 stores and offices. The fire also launched my journalism career, although I didn’t know it at the time. My mother happened to be driving through town that morning, and saw the destruction. Knowing my keen interest in photography, and appreciating the magnitude of this news event, she rousted me out of bed and proclaimed, go forth and shoot. I did, and by happenstance, met the editor of an upstart community newspaper competing with the Abbotsford, Sumas and Matsqui News. He bought several of my photos of the fire aftermath, and that profile eventually led to an invitation from news editor Mark Rushton at The News to work for

the bigger, established newspaper. The competitor folded in due course, and I was by then a bonafide photojournalist and darkroom technician for Abbotsford’s venerable community newspaper that turns 90 this year, and which we’ll officially celebrate tomorrow. Eventually, I put down my cameras and turned to writing and editing words, and that sealed my career course through several community papers and freelancing adventures which took me through the Lower Mainland and even overseas. The changes at this paper and in the business since that fateful day in 1976 have been major. Ancient Underwood typewriters, which linked to hot lead typesetting, gave way to the first computers. They were little more than word processors with glowing green screens, but they were at the time state of the art, and we were hugely impressed with the technological transition. The ASM News was eventually shortened to just the Abbotsford News. In the early 1960s, Cec Hacker sold this paper and sister publications in Chilliwack and Mission to a British company,

the Liverpool Post and Echo Holdings. That firm became Trinity Holdings, and its executives eventually decided in the 1990s to divest themselves of their Lower Mainland community newspaper properties. Up stepped David Black, adding The News and other Valley papers to his

Despite all the phenomenal technological changes, the core of what we do remains the same. successful chain of community papers, which began in the Cariboo. By this time, newspaper subscriptions were all but phased out, with advertising clients making their buys based on mass distribution rather than single copy sales figures. Technology would loom large once again in the ’90s, as electronic pagination – or page building – moved from traditional compositors to editors and

reporters, with the advent of the Apple Macintosh computer and publishing software. The community newspaper industry was now on par with the major dailies in terms of computerization. In the decade following, this paper and its sister Black Press publications – numbering over 100 – would be part of the most dramatic change to sweep the newspaper business. The Internet and social media created unimagined new dimensions in the distribution of information. The News now has the most heavily visited website of all Black Press papers, featuring video, slideshows and a webfirst news policy. Yet, despite all those phenomenal technological changes, the core of what we do remains the same – reflecting the community, delivering information specific and unique to it. The Abbotsford News has existed as a vital news source for 90 years, and it will continue to be far into the future, in print and multi-media platforms. If the past nine decades are any indication, the years ahead will be an exciting and challenging ride.

Put yourself in shoes of those less fortunate

In a city where residents say they are generous and caring, and with so many churches, you would think there would be more help for those less fortunate. The closing of the Women’s Zone will only do one thing – ensure those who are using the services there have one less place to go or possibly nowhere to go at all. Add to this the recent debate over panhandling, it

seems Abbotsford isn’t really the place to be if you happen to be one of its less fortunate residents. While there was letter after letter earlier this year about the Taboo show and lingerie football, there seems to be almost near silence when it comes to things such as services for the low income residents being cut. Do the residents of Abbotsford really care more about some sex show or lingerie

football than about those who have no home, are poor, have mental health issues, etc? I am aware many have this idea that everyone who is homeless, poor, on assistance, etc., are just lazy and don’t want a job, or use drugs. Let me tell you this, the person writing this letter is on assistance, but yet if I were to walk down the street you would never guess I

wasn’t working, and I certainly don’t use drugs. Yet I still hear this near daily from various people in the community when I am out doing my daily routines. Even if someone may happen to be using drugs and is homeless, shouldn’t we still help them? Ignoring the issues and cutting services hurts everyone and the money saved isn’t worth the cost to the community, the indi-

viduals affected, and the increased use of services such as the hospital.

Just try and put yourself in the shoes of those who are less fortunate and see

We’ve changed our name but our purpose is still the same.

We are responding to the Ledgeview $115,000 in assistance article. We moved from Manitoba in 2000 and were and still are avid golfers. The deciding factor in settling in Abbotsford was that it had a high quality championship golf course. Without this we would have built and settled in another community. We were very disappointed in Coun. Henry Braun’s misinformed opinions in the news article. He asked how could Ledgeview lose money on food and alcohol. Perhaps the answer is in not selling enough of these products due to inclement weather as well as the downturn in the economy since 2008.

Why should members be paying a one-time fee of $635 as per his comment, when everyone in the community is able to take advantage of the facility? Yet only the members cover the shortfall? How unfair! Not to mention the arrogent comment suggesting many of the members are affluent. Not only was the comment inappropriate but it suggested that city assistance to other projects was only given because the community had no affluent people other than those members at Ledgeview. It should be noted that every progressive city has at least one championship golf facility as we do. Bob and Heather Lang

I read with utter dismay that my tax dollars will be spent bailing out Ledgeview Golf Course (“Ledgeview golf course gets $115,000 in city funding,” The News, May 17. Much needed community resources like “The Warm Zone” drop-in centre for women will be forced to close, and recreational facilities like the Matsqui Outdoor Pool are closed because our council chose not to fund operating costs or repairs, but a grant is given to a golf course? If the Ledgeview Golf Society is incapable of running the facility, maybe it’s time that it be sold instead of them standing before council with their hands out. Maureen Norton

Housing bubble fears just hot air: Economist Jeff NAGEL Black Press

Helmut Pastrick has heard the growing talk from other financial analysts that a real estate bubble or “craze” in Vancouver has left the condo market ripe for a crash. He doesn’t see it. The Central 1 Credit Union chief economist instead says prices aren’t soaring dramatically and he expects continued stability over the short term in the Lower Mainland. “The Vancouver market is still obviously very expensive,” Pastrick said. “But it’s not skyrocketing away from us. Nor is it likely to fall into the tank either.” Lower Mainland home sales were down in April, but most prices are up modestly from a year ago, although some categories have sagged in recent months.

Nor does he see signs that builders are flooding the market with new units. The risk as Pastrick sees it is not from overinflated prices, but from global events – a new financial crisis in Europe or a war that sends oil prices spiking. Over the longer term, Pastrick doesn’t expect Metro Vancouver will suddenly become a more affordable place to own a home. “When I look over the next 25 years, I expect prices will be higher,” he said. “I expect it will be even more difficult for many to enter the housing market.” The proportion of people who rent instead of own will rise over time, he predicted, and builders will continue the trend of offering smaller units. Benchmark prices

Past Leap of Faith events have featured jumpers ranging in age from 18 to 81. This year’s leap takes place June 16 at 10 a.m at the Abbotsford Sky Dive Centre at 5112 Gladwin Rd.

SUMMER BASH

Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

Equipment sales help the hungry

FUN BBQ A large crowd was on hand Saturday at M&M Meats sponsored BBQ in McMillan Park, in support of Colitis & Crohn’s Disease. BC Ambulance, Abbotsford Fire Rescue and Abbotsford Heat mascot, Hawkey were on site as part of event.

For the past two months, Abbotsford-based Handlers Equipment campaigned to send cows and chickens to poverty stricken communities across the world. The campaign benefitted Food for the Hungry. With every new Mahindra tractor purchased during the months

of March and April at Handlers, a $500 donation was put towards the purchase of either one cow or 40 chickens to a pre-determined community with Food for the Hungry. The fundraising campaign was unique in that salesman Joel Venema personally donated $31.50 for

every Mahindra tractor sold.Handlers matched the donation 3:1, bringing the total to $125. Donations were also matched 3:1 by the Canadian International Development Agency making it $500. A total of 11 cows and 400 chickens were gifted to poverty-stricken areas.

On May 16, local drivers took a spin around the block in a new 2012 Ford vehicle in support of Communitas and Matthew’s House. Ford Canada, in partnership with Magnuson Ford of Abbotsford, donated $20 for each test drive completed. Drivers further supported Matthew’s House through a by-donation BBQ sponsored by PriceSmart Foods. The sense of community support behind these events reflects the heart and soul of Matthew’s House, said organizers. “It is wonderful to see such a diversity of people out to support respite care for children with disabilities. People in Abbotsford want to help their local community. A special thank you to the Downtown Abbotsford Historic Car Show Society and the Lions Club of Abbotsford,” said Tom Balke, Stewardship Director at Communitas Supportive Care Services. M a t t h e w ’ s House – facilitated by Communitas Supportive Care Society – will provide respite care for children with lifelimiting disabilities. It will offer children a safe, welcoming place to stay, while at the same time allowing parents the opportunity for rest. This home away from home will provide long and shortterm respite based on the needs of individuals and their families throughout B.C. For information on how to be involved with Matthew’s House, go to www.matthewshouse. ca or www.communitascare.com.

Jazz band kicks off series

The Envision Twilight Concert Series returns June 1, kicking off its 22nd year at Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission. The community free-by-donation series runs Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 to 8 p.m. until the final show on Aug. 31. First up is the Hatzic Secondary school jazz band on Friday, June 1. The group, under the direction of Julie Aldridge, has been in existence for seven years. Talented HSS music students, ranging in age from 12-17, rehearse diligently both at the school and on their own time and the payoffs have been enormous. Past performances have taken them to Whistler and Banff as well as an incredible opportunity to compete in New Orleans against high calibre U.S. high schools.

The Hatzic Secondary school jazz band kicks off the Envision Twilight concert series on June 1. It’s Mission Secondary’s turn on Wednesday, June 6. The Mission Secondary School Jazz Band is comprised of students from Grade 7 to 12. They meet twice a week, and have been working all year towards this concert. The music is from all different jazz eras,

beginning with the big band swing sound of the 1930s and 1940s to modern pieces that include funk and rock styles. Students will be featured in saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano and drums solos. The MSS Jazz Band has been invited to the

prestigious London Festival of Music, which will take place in England in the last week of April, 2013. The group is working feverishly towards being able to participate in the worldrenowned event. Some of the musical pieces may be familiar, and MSS Jazz Band encourages you to sing along and dance! The Art in the Park program continues with a variety of visual artists presenting their work each evening of Twilight. The Blackberry Kitchen and the Log Cabin Café are both returning for the series. John Vissers and David Westley return to share host duties for the concerts. Linda Golightly leads the Mission Special Olympics Team to provide safe, efficient, family-friendly free parking. Admission is free but donations are appreciated to help run the event.

Do you have a finicky pet? One of the most common concerns for pet owners is they can’t get their pet to eat with any degree of consistency. Thus they have a “finicky pet”. Labelling a pet as finicky is a common mistake for both pet owners and the pet food industry as a whole. Being “finicky” is treated like a personality disorder in pets and it’s usually the furthest from the truth. Many of these pets follow the same pattern. Eat good one day and poorly for the next few, they eat excessive grass, can be gassy etc. etc. So often people try a new food and the pet likes it for a week or two and then won’t even look at it. Sometimes these pets can be prone to issues like yeast infections, poor coats, dry itchy skin among others. REUBEN KOREMAN, OWNER OPERATOR The Scruffy Tail Pet Food and Supplies Ltd.

So what can we do? First remove the finicky label! Next we need to support the digestion and Immunity. We need to kick start your pets system. Digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics are a must (especially if your pet has been on any antibiotic recently) and can be found in many quality pet supplements. Tripe and pumpkin are really good tummy settlers. Smaller food portions can work wonders as well. Instead of two cups all at once try two or three smaller meals. This gives them a chance to digest a little at a time. Slow feed bowls and balls can help with pacing your pets eating. And as always take the time to pick a quality pet food. Read labels like you would if you had to eat it everyday every meal. No bi-product, no chemical preservatives are a good place to start.

Roofing materials aren’t just limited to cedar shakes and asphalt anymore, says Andrew McDowell of 21st Century Roofers.

A31

A roof over your head By Maggie Calloway We pretty much all grew up with the knowledge we could have any style of roof we want as long as it was cedar shakes or asphalt, but that is no longer the case. There are a number of great alternatives available now to suit not just the style and location of the home but also the unique requirements of

We may be gnashing our teeth about the slow start to the good weather this year but the cycle of rain then sun over and over again is perfect for making that green stuff grow, and I don’t mean your bank account! As with every other job, the right tools make light work. The men at Foreshore Equipment and Supply had some insight about what’s going on in the world of lawnmowers, what’s new and better and how we should take care of our current equipment, new and old. Al Chrzanecki of Foreshore has some tips for a homeowner in the market for a new mower. “Buy a mower to fit your personal circumstances; if you are on a regular-size flat city lot you don’t need a rider mower, you really only need a push mower,” says Chrzanecki “Push mowers are somewhat different than we remember from our father and grandfather’s day. Some of them will have bushings in the wheels so you will get longevity and it will push easier because they are a little smaller at 20 inches, which is perfect for the small lot.” Chrzanecki says gas mowers have also changed over the years. “The manufacturers have changed the design of the

Renovating on a budget With a modest budget and a lot of determination, Laura Lee and Jacqueline turned their drafty little pre-war bungalow into a warm and cosy retreat. They learned how to insulate and make other energy efficiency upgrades. And, they’ve proven you don’t have to spend a lot to save a lot. “You can spend less than $50 on a tube of window caulk, a roll of weatherstripping and a window film kit and significantly change the comfort of your home,” says Jacqueline.

Meet Michele. She’s a FortisBC customer who believes in conservation and reducing greenhouse gases. She drives a fuel-efficient car, grows her own vegetables, and turns down the heat whenever she can. And now, she’s a FortisBC renewable natural gas customer.

“It’s an easy thing I can do to be a little bit more green. I’m helping to reduce greenhouse gases, and it’s terrific to get a reward for it too.” Michele, Mission, renewable natural gas customer

Renewable natural gas is natural gas…but better Instead of coming from the ground, methane gas comes from organic waste found at local landfills and farms. Before it escapes into the atmosphere as a harmful greenhouse gas, it’s captured and cleaned up. Then, FortisBC adds it into their pipelines, giving British Columbians renewable energy.

How it works

Carbon neutral

For about $5 a month, you can designate 10 per cent of your natural gas usage as renewable. FortisBC will then inject an equivalent amount of renewable natural gas into their system.

FortisBC’s renewable natural gas has been designated as carbon neutral in B.C. by Offsetters (Canada’s leading provider of carbon management solutions). Customers who sign up receive a 10 per cent credit on the B.C. carbon tax.

THE TRUTH ABOUT copper vs. aluminum wiring! If your home was built between 1960 and 1980, there is a good chance you may have aluminum wiring. If your lights flicker occasionally, or your outlets and switch plates are warm to the touch, you definitely have cause for concern.

FACT: Copper wiring conducts electricity better than aluminum.

FACT: Copper wiring expands and contracts less which means it is less likely to cause overheating, loose connections, arcing and melting, ultimately the #1 cause of electrical fires. FACT: Homes with aluminum wiring are 55 times more likely to have a fire hazard condition present. the a

Obviously, replacing all the aluminum wire with copper wire is the best, worry free solution. But there is another option which the BC Safety Authority recognizes as a safe and acceptable alternative to a complete home wiring replacement. We have frequently seen this repair attempted incorrectly, which means the homeowner has received no benefit for the effort or their investment, so having the work done to Code by a trained professional is critical. Our technicians are both skilled and experienced at this cost effective way of addressing your aluminum wiring problems and reducing the risk of fire and electrical problems in your home.

Many changes in roofing > from page 31 each individual roof. Andrew McDowell of 21st Century Roofers Ltd. is a second generation roofer; you might say it’s in his blood. The company, started by his dad in 1978 and taken over by McDowell four years ago, has grown from a small fourperson business to twelve highly trained professionals. “There have been lots of changes over the years; for instance on a low-slope roof we used to build it up with felt, tar and a gravel finish. Today we can provide a modern high-performance alternative,” McDowell says. “We are very careful about using new products, some of which haven’t been around very long. Our company will only use proven materials and technology and which has a good warranty behind them. Some of the new materials have been around for ten years or less so we don’t know how they will perform over the expected life of the roof. Another thing to understand is some of the new materials don’t have CSA approval from the Canadian government.” He cites the example of a wood fibre product that definitely didn’t work. “In the 1990s there was a new roofing product made of wood

fibre in cement; it failed miserably. As we know cement is porous, as is wood fibre. This product may have been fine in Arizona but not in our climate and a lot of home owners suffered with roofs that caved in from the weight.” Metal roofs are growing in popularity. There are different types: metal shingles, metal cladding and barn profile. 21st Century uses steel metal cladding because McDowell feels the hidden system makes it much more watertight. For most of us he says, a new roof is not a rewarding purchase that you can look at like a new television or sofa; it’s utilitarian. But not much else matters if on a dark and stormy night you hear the sound of water dripping onto your dining room table. Do your due diligence, check references, check to see if there is a string of complaints filed against the company and make sure you get the proper warranties. It also pays to check that the company is a member of an association like the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association which requires members to carry a minimum of $5 million in liability insurance, and is current with WorkSafe BC. Also, check to see if the company you hire sub-contracts out. If they do you just don’t know who you are getting.

Lions, Falcons win Valley titles Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

If the Fraser Valley junior and Grade 8 boys rugby championships are any indication, the future of the sport at Yale Secondary is awfully bright. The Yale Lions Grade 10 squad knocked off the Robert Bateman Timberwolves, their East Abbotsford rivals, 34-21 in the regional title game on their home turf on Wednesday afternoon. Earlier in the day, the Falcons of W.A. Fraser Middle – one of Yale’s feeder schools – won the Grade 8 championship with a dominant 41-5 triumph over the H.D. Stafford SkyHawks of Langley. “It says a lot for the program,” noted Yale junior co-coach Scott Hunter, reflecting on the two Valley titles, along with the fact the Lions senior boys have earned a berth to AAA provincials. “Having all three teams do well is great. We have a lot of good

Local volleyball players Ben Lieuwen and Jeffrey Driediger celebrated a national championship last weekend. The duo helped the Fraser Valley Volleyball Club's under-16 Blue boys squad to the Tier 1 title in their age group at the Canadian club championships in Toronto. The FVVC squad went a perfect 9-0 at the tournament, losing just three sets along the way. They were tested in the final by the Ottawa Fusion, dropping the first set 25-21 before rallying to win the next two by scores of 25-18 and 15-13. Lieuwen, who plays right side, and Driediger, a middle, are both students at Mennonite Educational Institute. "It's a pretty sweet feeling," said Lieuwen, 15, who took home tourney MVP honours. "Our whole team, we grew up watching the Trinity Western Spartans, and watching them win two (CIS) championships in a row (2011 and 2012) was pretty inspiring. So when we got a chance to do it, it was an honour." FVVC Blue head coach

players coming up right now, and things are looking good for the future.” Yale and Bateman met for the second straight year in the Valley championship game. The T-Wolves were the defending champs, but the Lions avenged that result with a steady performance on Wednesday. Jake Froehler led the offensive charge with a pair of tries, while Kaden McLeod, Surge Francis, Travis Murray and Jake DeCecco scored one apiece. Francis also booted a trio of converts. Bateman got a try and three converts from Gavin Rowell, while Brenden Green and Torin Evans notched one try each. T-Wolves coach Daniel Webster was pleased with his team’s defensive performance against the powerhouse Lions, and lauded the “great” rugby rivalry between the two schools. “We dug deep and had a very good team effort,” he said. “It was unlucky

PM watched game From A40

Jordan Geransky called his team "the most resilient group of 16-year-old athletes I have ever seen." He cited an example from the tournament's second day, in a game against Edmonton's FOG Black. Fraser Valley dropped the opening set 25-12 and everything seemed to be going against the team and the players could not get into a rhythm. The team found itself trailing 9-4 in the second set, but they

The

found a way to battle back to win the set and tie the match, before taking the third set. "It takes a very special group of athletes to maintain the composure to win that type of match," Geransky said. "Yet that is what they did all year. "This team was pushed to the limits in pressure situations throughout the year and demonstrated the ability to overcome deficits in the most unlikely of scenarios." On the first day of the U16

nationals, Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper's presence in the stands caused a stir. He was in attendance to watch his son Ben play for the Ottawa Fusion, before heading off to the G8 summit on the weekend. "That was really cool," Lieuwen said. "We saw Stephen Harper on the first day of the tournament, and we ended up playing his son in the final. I met his son . . . and he's a great guy."

a couple of our attacking opportunities didn’t turn out better.” The Falcons’ dominance in the Grade 8 final had head coach Ryan McWhinney wondering if this was the best boys rugby team in school history. That would be saying something – Wednesday’s triumph marked W.A. Fraser’s fourth regional title in recent years. “We’ve had some good teams, but this is the most decisive win we’ve ever had,” said McWhinney, who has been with

the program since its inception seven years ago. “With this group, we’ve struggled at times to get them to stay focused. But today they were very focused and showed us they’ve learned some things throughout the season. They wanted it bad, and they performed. We’re very proud of the job they did.” Chris Combs scored a hat trick of tries for the Falcons, while Joel Ratzlaff, Thomas Rennie, Zach McKee and Kyle Davies had one each. Matt Ponte booted three converts. • On the senior boys rugby

Take a shot at a million Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

The Rotary Club of Abbotsford is once again giving the city a million reasons to golf. Rotary’s popular Million Dollar Hole in One contest returns to Fraserglen Golf Course on Saturday, June 2. The event’s nine-day run culminates on June 10 when three finalists will each take a shot at a pin 160 yards away. If any of those three balls finds the hole, the lucky golfer who struck it will win $1 million. In 11 previous editions of the contest, no one has managed to win the big prize. “We would love it if somebody won it this year,” event chair Hugh Ellis said, noting that the prize money would be covered by insurance. A good cause is the impetus for the contest. Rotary is raising money for the Campus of Care project being constructed next to Abbotsford Regional Hospital, and last year’s event generated approximately $25,000. The Campus of Care includes the Abbotsford Hospice Society, the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, and Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children with severe disabilities. The Million Dollar Hole in One event is open to golfers of all ages. During the qualifying days, golfers can pay $10 for 12 balls or $20 for 30 balls and take a shot at a pin 95 yards away. The top seven closest to the pin each day win a spot in the quarterfinal round, plus a

prize from a daily pool worth roughly $25,000 dollars. Five additional quarter-finalists will be randomly drawn each day. Each of the 96 qualifiers will have three shots at a pin approxi-

where they get one chance to hole out for $100,000. The top three move on to the finals, where they get one shot at $1 million. For more information, visit www. rotarymillion.com.

funny cars (FC), and these 260 mph, 3,000 horsepower beasts will overload your senses. Five Canadian teams will battle (four in TAD and one in TAFC) in the two fast classes. In TAD, Hugh Ridley is the Canadian favourite. Ridley will have last year’s event champion Ray Martin muscling the car down the quarter-mile, and this car is capable of being near the top of qualifying. The Sereda “Plum Crazy” TAD team is from Edmonton, and owner/driver Greg Sereda is looking for his career best finish this weekend. The prohibited favourite in TAD is Joey Severance, who was the defending Division 6 champion

last year and finished fourth in world national points in 2012. A new driver, Clif Bakx, will debut this weekend in TAD, and Ken Gilmore Motorsports have brought in Greg Hunter as the new driver for the Calgary based TAD team. This is a car with a lot of potential but mechanical issues have kept the team from running consistently. Qualifying starts today with sportsman classes including stock and super stock, top sportsman, top dragster and comp eliminator. Twenty degree dry weather is forecast, so many national records could be set. For more information go to www.missionraceway.com.

Mouat’s Alex Siemens led the pack in the senior girls 3,000-metre run at the Fraser Valley championships last week at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park.

WIN

Medals at the Valleys

Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

A pair of podium performances by distance runner Alex Siemens highlighted the local results at the Fraser Valley Track and Field Championships last week. Siemens won the 3,000 metres in a time of 10:23.38, and added a bronze medal in the 1,500m event at the regional championships, which were hosted by the Langley Mustangs at McLeod Athletic Park. There had been fears the event might not go ahead due to public school teacher job action, but the Mustangs

stepped in to organize. The Fraser Valleys are a qualifying meet for the B.C. high school track and field championships, which run June 1-2 at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium. The rest of the Abbotsford medalists are as follows. W.J. Mouat Hailey Gibson – silver, 100m Francesca Jackman – silver, 400m hurdles Sarya Ross – bronze, 3000m Tanner Strauss – silver, 110m hurdles
