Accident leaves one dead A driver who died after veering off Dewdney Trunk Road near Welch Avenue Monday has been identified as 57-year-old David Kernovich of Mission. The crash occurred just north of the Mission Rod and Gun Club. According to Mission RCMP spokeswoman Sgt. Miriam Dickson, the man was driving north along Dewdney around noon when his red Ford sport utility vehicle crossed the southbound lane and went into the dense underbrush. Passersby found the car in a swamp against a tree, but Dickson said it was not submerged in water. Cause of death has not been determined and the investigation is ongoing. If anyone has information related to this investigation they are asked to contact the Mission RCMP Detachment at 604-826-7161.

Speed limit drops on First Avenue BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

ORCHESTRA PERFORMS See The Record’s special sevenpage Seniors’ Week section. PAGE 25-31

Council’s proposal to divert trucks from First Avenue has hit a roadblock with the Ministry of Transportation. Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes said trucks will not be diverted along the Murray Street overpass through the industrial zone because it isn’t practical. The ministry will, however, approve the lowering of the speed limit to

30 km/h from 50 km/h. The traffic-calming measure should lessen the danger of commercial vehicles barreling down the downtown core, but the councillor who spearheaded the diversion proposal isn’t satisfied. “This pursuit cannot be over until trucks are removed from First Avenue,” said Coun. Dave Hensman, adding anything that can slow the trucks is a good first step. “I presented a very workable plan to the ministry of highways

and somehow it got lost in the mix,” he said, expressing disappointment that Hawes didn’t push the province harder. Hensman said a provincial election is coming up and he expects the issue to be top of mind for many in Mission who are interested in downtown revitalization, which can’t happen with noisy trucks ruining the shopping experience. Until the district can convince the province to reconsider the

wishes of council, Hensman has encouraged truckers to voluntarily take the bypass. But truckers have complained in the past that they’re unable to safely turn onto the Murray Street overpass to avoid the downtown, requiring changes to lane alignment, a provincial jurisdiction. Hawes didn’t know exactly when the signs would be officially lowered to 30 km/h, expected to go up between Murray and Grand Streets.

First Avenue apartments evacuated BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The third floor apartments at 33076 First Ave. were evacuated and closed by order of the B.C. fire commissioner May 23. According to Mission Fire Rescue Service’s Asst. Chief Larry Watkinson, “extreme fire hazard conditions” pres-

ent in the building prompted the department to seek the order. Smoke alarms and bells were pulled off the walls and some of the fire breaks were breached, he said. Residents were given notice at 9 a.m. that they had to leave by noon, and Mission Community Services was on scene helping people find alternate accommodations. Food and transporta-

tion were also provided for any former residents, said Watkinson. Round the clock security has been arranged to keep any remaining possessions safe. The fire department conducted 15 inspections over three months, and no compliance with orders to correct safety concerns were heeded. There was no violence when the people were moved, said the assistant

chief, and the residents were surprised, but “understood the danger.” Only 10 similar orders like Wednesday’s were enacted across B.C. last year, as the process for approval is stringent, explained Watkinson. “Mission Fire/Rescue Service’s priority was life safety for these residents, and then finding them a place to live,” he said.

New Riverside program offers IT training BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

For businesses to relocate to Mission, there needs to be a good quality of life for employees, and skilled technical training and educational opportunities, according to a regional informational technology (IT) expert. And Mission has taken another step forward in increasing its desirability to companies through the newly announced IT technician (ITT) program which is starting up at Riverside College in September. Applications are now being accepted for the five-course endeavour, and graduates will earn industry association standard certifications that comply with ministry of education standards. Ray Szabada, founder of the non-profit Sumas Regional Consortium for High Technology (SRC-Tec), said, “Every time there is a need for skilled IT work-

The ITT program at Riverside will help graduates find jobs as entrylevel IT administrators and more. METRO

ers, the knee-jerk reaction is to source people from India, Asia or Eastern Europe. Riverside’s new program will help us in developing a self-sufficient model that both creates jobs and increases our productivitiy as a whole.” Szabada has been working on the underpinnings of this program since 2007, in collaboration with university

professors and other technically sound professionals. He first successfully introduced the program to the Sto:lo Nation in 2010, and is pleased to see this first step be included in Mission school district’s offerings. But this is just a start, he continued. The next phase would be targeting the education, with help from industry employers, towards specific types of businesses. “If we want to attract industry, we need these programs to be taken seriously.” Eventually, Szabada would like to see a regional technological centre of excellence that would provide training and education. Mission is well-poised to emerge as an industry leader due to companies recognizing the high price of doing business and leasing property in Metro Vancouver, he said. The Riverside program will be the only program in the Fraser Valley pro-

viding certifications for this level of training. Graduates will join the work force as entry-level IT administrators, call centre support, desktop support and small business IT support workers. “Every program at Riverside has a concrete connection to the local marketplace and our new IT technician program is no different,” says Cathy Anderson, Riverside College principal. “When we first learned of the shortage from local business leaders, we began to research broader community partnerships and support for instituting a program at Riverside. The response we got was very positive and the result is our new ITT program.” Riverside allows students to work towards completing Grade 12 while offering its programs, plus academic courses. For more information visit www. goriversidecollege.ca or call 604-8140446. The school is located at 33919 Dewdney Trunk Rd.

Mission Fields store will remain open, say new owners Fears that Mission’s local Fields store on First Avenue would be closing have been allayed following the purchase of the department store chain.

FHC Holdings Ltd. has taken control of 57 Fields stores across B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories,

and has no plans to close them. Fields has been part of the landscape of Western Canada for over 60 years, with the first

store opening in Vancouver in 1950. Mission’s Fields store is located between Eleni’s Greek restaurant and the Save N’ Shop on First Avenue.

FHC Holdings announced a percentage of profits will go to support various initiatives and charities within each community.

A Chilliwack RCMP officer has been charged in connection with a collision that killed 20-year-old Steve Genberg of Mission last summer and seriously injured his 19-yearold passenger. Const. Jordan Braid has been charged with dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. The Abbotsford Police Department investigated the incident and forwarded its findings to Crown counsel. The charges were sworn against Braid May 25. Braid was on duty and driving a marked police vehicle just after 11 p.m. July 12, 2011, apparently en route to a reported domestic dispute. He allegedly crossed the centre line and collided head-on with Genberg’s Ford Mustang on Highway 7 near Bodnar Road in Agassiz. Genberg was reportedly leading a convoy of four or five vehicles travelling on their way to Harrison Hot Springs. Baird is also facing an ongoing code of conduct investigation in relation to this incident. He remains on administrative duties and is currently not involved in any front-line police operations, according to the RCMP. He makes his first court appearance June 26 in Chilliwack.

Smart meters are now installed in more than two-thirds of Lower Mainland households. BC Hydro officials say more than 720,000 meters are now installed in the region with close to 300,000 homes still to go. The penetration rate is about 90 per cent already in Burnaby, Richmond, Delta, Langley and Chilliwack, according to Hydro statistics. The new wireless meters are installed in about 74 per cent of Vancouver homes, 71 per cent in Surrey and White Rock, 63 per cent in Abbotsford and Mission, 61 per cent on the North Shore and 28 per cent in the Coquitlam/Maple Ridge areas. Overall, more than 1.2 million smart meters are installed province-wide and officials say the rollout of their smart power grid is continuing without difficulty. “We have had some challenges,” said Gary Murphy, chief project officer for the smart metering program. The Crown corporation continues to field complaints about high bills, but Murphy said in many cases customers were not correctly comparing to the equivalent billing period and many were complaining about bills for usage that actually pre-dated installation of their smart meter. BC Hydro has pulled 1,057 smart meters from service for testing at the direction of the meter manufacturer, which cited concern about a possible flaw with some meters during manufacturing. Murphy said at least 700 have now been tested and 0.5 per cent were found to be outside Measurement Canada’s accuracy standard of three per cent. Bills are being adjusted for affected homeowners, resulting in credits ranging from five to 10 per cent for consumption while the errant smart meter was operational. About two per cent of households continue to oppose installation of smart meters, according to Hydro communications manager Cindy Verschoor. Opponents of the program argue smart meters

pose a possible health hazard from adding an extra layer of radio frequency radiation and numerous B.C. city councils have passed resolutions urging Hydro to allow customers to opt out. “It’s really not viable to offer an opt-out,” Verschoor said, but added Hydro has still not decided how it will respond to hold-outs. Nobody in B.C. has yet opted to relocate their meter — at their own expense — to a more distant spot on their property, she added. The B.C. Utilities Commission previously rejected smart meter opponents’ request for an injunction halting the program, although that decision is under appeal. Newly released tests conducted by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control found a bank of 10 Hydro smart meters forced to all send signals at once — something that doesn’t happen in practice — results in exposure of about four microwatts per square centimeter at a range of 30 cm, compared to seven microwatts for a microwave oven, 9.6 for a cellphone and 15.6 for a baby monitor. Time-averaged over a day, because the meters only actually operate one minute per day, the tests found exposure from a 10-meter bank in normal operation would be 0.0028 microwatts per square centimeter at 30 cm, dropping to 0.0012 at a range of three meters. The report said timeaveraged RF exposure from smart meters at all of those ranges was “low” — less than 0.001 per cent of Health Canada’s safety limit of 600 microwatts per square centimeter of continuous exposure for general public areas. According to the opposition group Citizens For Safe Technology, 48 B.C. municipalities — including Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby and White Rock — have called for either a smart meter moratorium or an opt-out provision.

The Mission Heritage Association wants to partner with the District of Mission to build a $1-million legacy building in the eastern part of Fraser River Heritage Park. Dubbed the Clayburn Maintenance Legacy Building, it would be located where shipping containers used by maintenance crews currently sits. It would feature two floors of 6,000 square feet and a greenhouse would be attached to one of the sides. The bottom floor would provide 600 square feet of washroom space, with 2,400 square feet for maintenance equipment and tools. The 2,000-square foot top floor will be used for meetings or classroom events. The project is expected to cost roughly $1.07 million, with the association asking the district to fund a quarter of that. Association member Brian Antonson pitched the idea to council May 22, explaining that private partnerships and corporate sponsors are contingent upon an agreement with the municipality. “Everything that’s been done at the park over the years has been done on this collaborative model,” he said, adding the first structure built 25 years ago, Norma Kenney house, was done by a company called Artisan Construction in conjunction with Ferndale Institution and volunteers from the community. Antonson said they have agreements in place

for donated labour worth $250,000 from the Masonry Institute of BC, while the Mission School District and Riverside School will provide apprenticeship opportunities for students. The Clayburn brick factory, which has discontinued manufacturing the bricks involved in so many buildings in the Fraser Valley, has donated $30,000 worth of leftover bricks. And Mission will donate 300 cubic metres from its forests for the wood materials.

Antonson said every little bit helps, and they’re hoping to get the concrete donated as well. Individuals can donate to the cause by buying bricks for the building, with each donor’s name going to a plaque. There are corner bricks at $100 each, ordinary bricks for $25, and facing bricks which are $10. As for the legacy portion of the project, Antonson said that in 2008 when the community put together the bid for the 2014 Winter Games, a commitment was made to

OPINION

Published and printed by Black Press Ltd. at Mission at 33047 First Ave., V2V 1G2

A line on a map The provincial government continues to throw millions of dollars towards Experience the Fraser, a plan to link existing parks and trails along both sides of the river from Vancouver to Hope. We hope it’s worth it. Most of the money, $2.5 million initially, went towards developing a concept plan — mapping out the hiking and biking trail links. But because of private property — some of it occupied by industrial businesses, such as saw mills, and even more of it being native land — the proposed trail has to go around them, for now. While connected by a line on a map, the trail in areas such as south Albion in Maple Ridge would consist only of a road shoulder and some signs indicating the route. So it’s not really one, long connected trail, but a series of independent existing ones. Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes suggests a park fee be added to municipal taxes to purchase private, riverfront property if or when it becomes available, to expand the route — fill in the gaps. It’s a nice idea, but an expensive one. And would such a trail, if completed, really attract tourists – cyclists who want to ride the entire route just to say they did? Where’s the economic return if they’re just bypassing through town? And why wouldn’t they just take the Trans Canada Trail? Remember that? Who uses it? Who cares? Fraser Valley residents have a plethora of trails they use in abundance already – and some make up part of the Trans Canada Trail and Experience the Fraser. Municipalities already have plans to purchase private properties along the river, negotiate with them when they do become available, to expand trail networks. So what new is the provincial government spending millions of dollars on? As far as we can tell, nothing more than a line on a map. – Abbotsford News

Scenes from farm trenches W

ith ongoing pipeline and oil tanker skirmishes, and a hot summer for mining and logging still to come, the green war in B.C. shows no signs of slowing down. Things are already hot in the Fraser Valley, where the federal government’s change to the definition of fish habitat has opened a new front on the farms. Farmers briefly got into the public discussion by hauling a couple of cute calves into downtown Vancouver and staging a television-friendly demo in front of the federal fisheries office. They have been saying for decades that imposing salmon stream regulations on drainage ditches around their fields is impractical. Fraser Valley Conservative MPs Randy Kamp and Mark Strahl even had the nerve to meet with local mayors to hear their concerns about B.C.’s most productive farmland, without inviting selfappointed “activists.” Arrayed against them is an environmental lobby whose deep green wing was defined by Marvin Rosenau, a for-

McRae and Paul Kitching, B.C.’s chief veterinarian, pleaded for the public to understand that any farm reporting system must rely on voluntary compliance by farmers. Imposing inspections on land farms across B.C.’s vast area is even less practical. Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein famously observed that the next rancher to find a possible mad cow should have “shot, shoveled and shut up” rather than file a report and devastate the industry. Denham, the NDP and others appear to operate under an assumption there should be sufficient government resources to sample and inspect every farm across B.C. for reportable contagious illnesses. This is similar to the fashionable notion that we should have enough park rangers to guard every cedar tree.

No smoking gun with pesticides Editor, The Record: Re: Premier bitten by pest problem (B.C. Views, May 24). The editorial on cosmetic pesticides written by Tom Fletcher skates around the body of medical and scientific evidence linking these toxins to such illnesses as childhood leukemia

and Parkinson’s disease. In his words, the “right thing to do” is to do nothing about cosmetic pesticides. I imagine if he were living in the 1960s, he would be arguing that the Vietnam War was the right thing to do, or in the ‘70s that concern over the nuclear arms race

was merely “political.” The problem with cosmetic pesticides, like DDT or cigarettes, is that there is no smoking gun. It is going to take time

It has even gone through phase one clinical trials (which test safety for humans) because there was some idea that it might help with arthritis. No such luck. In other words, you

could drink the stuff with no ill effect. When Oak Bay council proposed banning all “pesticides” including Roundup, I wrote them pointing out these facts. To no avail; they just went along with the herd, and copied the type of ban that Saanich has. Well, keep up the good work of speaking truth to ignorance. It might eventually help.

Mission Record

There have been countless changes to Mission’s Fraser Valley Building Supplies (FVBS) in 20 years. What started out as a levelled, empty dirt lot, has seen a main structure added to five times, an expansion of the outside yard, its own delivery truck fleet, and new departments, such as agriculture. But what hasn’t been altered is the company’s dedication to customer service and the community. In what is still a family-run business by brothers Dave and Brad Nick,

this Mission mainstay of home repair, construction materials and building advice has seen its staff double in two decades. Many people have worked at FVBS, but several remain on year after year, including general manager Dirk Weymann and Randy Thiessen, purchaser, who were both hired during construction of the business. Crediting a solid business plan and a focus on serving its customers, the two men have seen the ups and downs of the industry, including the recent 2008 economic downturn. The company has weathered that storm and Weymann reports

FUTURE SHOP - CORRECTION NOTICE On the May 25 flyer, page 6, this product: Yamaha RXV373 5.1 Channel Receiver (WebCode: 10197268) was advertised with incorrect wattage. Please be advised that this receiver in fact has a 425-watt power rating, NOT 500 watts as previously advertised. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

32530-32670 Lougheed Hwy, Mission BC

they are nearly back to ‘08 levels. FVBS does have corporate partners, Tim-BrMart, ACE and Benjamin Moore, and they’ve “never been afraid to try something new,” said Weymann. A garden centre did not prove successful, but the agricultural centre has. “We’re always looking for new opportunities,” he said. And while growing the business is the goal of every successful venture, Thiessen said it’s their staff that make FVBS a great place in which to do business and work. Many employees live and volunteer in Mission, and the company

regularly contributes cash and in-kind donations — averaging $25,000 annually — to numerous groups and charities. “It’s part of our corporate mandate. Mission is the extension of the family,” explained Weymann. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, FVBS is hosting a celebration 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 9 that will include deals throughout the store, a petting zoo, bouncy castle, hourly specials and more. For further details, please see the eight-page flyer included in the June 7 edition of The Record. FVBS is located at 7072 Wren St.

Severance tops in TAD BY DEAN MURDOCH Contributor

Oregon’s Joey Severance capitalized on a miniscule late start by Rosedale’s Hugh Ridley to take the win in top alcohol dragster at last weekend’s 18th annual Lordco B.C. Nationals at Mission Raceway Park. More than 325 cars came out for the event, and excellent weather greeted the participants and crowd. In top alcohol funny car, California’s Steve Gasparelli beat Brian Hough for the class win, repeating his victory of last year. Gasparelli made the quickest and fastest run in Canadian history in the first round of eliminations, going 5.573 seconds at 261 mph, breaking both the Mission and the national records. The comp eliminator win was earned by Jeff Lane, in his defeat of Utah’s Alan Ellis. Top sportsman saw two Canadians in the final round. Mission’s Zak Clarke took on Red Deer Alberta’s Dave Robinson. Clarke got the better leave on the starting line, but he ran quicker than his dial in and Robinson took the win. Clarke and his brand new ‘67 Nova won the “Best Engineered” race car award at the event. Top dragster was won on the starting line as Arizona’s Tom Koenen got the easy win over Jim

Morris who lit the red light handing Koenen the automatic win. Koenen would have been very tough to beat though as he almost had a perfect light; less than .004 of a second from perfect). Super stock eliminator was an epic battle between multi-time event winner Jody Lang and the 2011 World Champion Jackie Alley. She was second off the starting line, but ran closer to her dial-in for a 12/10,000ths of a second victory. It was less than two inches at 135 mph. In stock eliminator, Brad Burton defeated Dallas Glenn. Super comp saw Chilliwack’s Stefan Kondolay defeat Seattle’s Ed Hauter in the final round. It was Stefan’s second win in a row in division six competition. Kondolay had a great .011 reaction time and won by a half-car length. The final round in super gas

was not that close as Abbotsford’s Marv Wiebe took a .036 starting line advantage and he ended up with a .030 package forcing Randy Sides under the 9.90 index with a 8.898. Wiebe’s worst reaction time of the weekend was a .026 in round three. The super street final was won on the starting line as Mike Scheffler went way red. Everett’s Allen Macham had a .021 light and ran it out to a very strong 10.910 ET. In the motorcycle final, Omond got an easy win when Jeff Haven’s bike left in second gear. That made him late at the tree and he could not catch Omond who had a great .012 reaction time. Two bracket classes competed on the weekend as well. In super prot, Mike Shannon defeated Randy Beck, while in pro bracket, Mission’s Jim Behnke defeated Jason Biscay.

New coordinator aims for zero bear kills this year BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

The District of Mission has brought back the Bear Aware Coordinator for a second year to educate people about dealing with the furry critters, but there’s a new face to the title. Brian Cummings, an outdoorsman with 30 years experience dealing with bears, will be filling the void left by Zoey Slater. “I’m really looking forward to continuing on the good work that Zoey did” in laying the ground work, he said. The 53-year-old brings a wealth of experience to the position, not just with bears, but in dealing with wildlife. He managed the hunting and fishing store Outdoors Unlimited in Maple Ridge, has run fishing charters on the Fraser River for 20 years, as well as teaching hunting and firearms courses. But Cummings has switched from hunting bears to protecting them, and with seven bears destroyed in Mission last year by conservation authorities, he has a goal this year of zero. “It’s needless destruction. I think if everybody

understood that by locking up their garbage, looking after their barbecues, their bird feeders and composting piles, it would eliminate the bears coming in to town.” Cummings said as more urban residents push out to the rural perimeters of Mission, some might think it’s cool to see a bear or be tempted to feed it. But that’s a mistake because they “become food conditioned and have to be put down,” he warned. Part of the Bear Aware strategy is to educate kids so that they can tell their parents about what they learned. Cummings will also do a door-to-door campaign in problem neigh-

bourhoods to remind people about things like not leaving their rot pots out, and picking up fruit that’s dropped on their property. According to Slater’s research last year, there were 453 reported bear sightings in the district over the six month period from June to November. The position of Bear Aware Coordinator was created by the district last spring and is jointly funded by the municipality and the Conservation Foundation. For more information, visit www.mission.ca, click on Services, then Environmental Services, and then Bear Awareness. If you see a bear call 1-877-952-RAPP.

Blessings in a Backpack fundraiser June 2 at pub A fundraiser happening Saturday at the Dewdney Pub aims to continue sending food home in a backpack with children in need. Blessings in a Backpack runs out of Deroche Elementary School, and one of the organizers, Lesa Lacey, says this registered charity started in the United States, and has been gaining ground in Canada. Deroche is the first school in the Fraser Valley to host the program, the third in B.C. “There is a great need in our community and those hit most hard are the children in our community,” said Lacey. “There are families that struggle to put food on the tables and in lunch bags. [This] program complements the existing Breakfast Club at the school and the school also helps kids who may not have lunch or snacks.” At a low cost of $2.50 per child per weekend, every Friday the Deroche group of volunteers have been providing each participant a number of items including one package of Kraft dinner, granola bar, ramen noodles, oatmeal and fruit. The Sasquatch Lions, Telus and local families have been able to help 29 out of 59 kids at the school, but they would like to expand the program to other schools. One hundred per cent of all monetary donations goes to purchase food, said Lacey. The burger and brew at Dewdney (8793 S. River Rd.) starts at 6:30 p.m., and $15 gets you in the door. For more information call Lesa at 604-803-2494, or to donate, visit blessingsina-

Ride raises funds for MS BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

More than 200 cyclists are gathering this weekend for the 2012 MS Fraser Valley Grape Escape Bike Tour, charity ride organized to help raise awareness and funds for multiple sclerosis (MS). This debilitating illness afflicts thousands of Canadians, including Mission’s Heather Armstrong, who was first diagnosed in 2006, and whose mother also has the physically disabling neurological disease. More than 10,000 participants across the nation are expected to take part in the non-competitive June 2-3 ride, and nearly 200 cyclists will be involved in the Fraser Valley tour. The attendees will cycle through the region and visit a number of local wineries. Armstrong said she has only had one clinical attack, and has managed to continue living her life through regular exercise, especially cycling. It was at a spinning class at Mission’s InForm Fitness gym that Armstrong met Adrian Gagne. He was recruiting people for an MS riding team, and Armstrong jumped aboard. “For one thing, it’s good fun. I like being able to meet like-minded people, and I can only do what I can do, but I want to continue to support finding a cure for MS,” she said. Team MS Gone is

currently comprised of Gagne, Armstrong, Mary Liner, Mary Lewis, Tracey Sych, James Armstrong and Braydon Hill. Armstrong is a care-

lated, primarily because of the recession. She has just exceeded her $1,500 goal this year, but if you would like to donate, visit msbiketours.ca.

Making dining out just a little bit easier It is now easier than ever to make healthy choices when dining out with the recent launch of the Province of British Columbia’s Informed Dining program. Featuring more than 300 restaurant outlets in British Columbia, the program publishes nutritional information and allows diners to view the information in a format similar to that of a nutritional guide on products at the grocery store. All you have to do is look for the Informed Dining logo at participating restaurants. “British Columbians have made it clear they want information to help them make informed choices about what they and their families are eating,” says B.C. Minister of Health Mike de Jong. “With Informed Dining, we are partnering with B.C. restaurants to help make the healthy choice the easy choice.” Some of the participating restaurants include chains such as The Boathouse, De Dutch, A&W and Little Caesar’s, and stand-alone restaurants such as H.A.V.E. Cafe in Vancouver, Mountain Eagle Books in Smithers and Joseph’s Coffee House in Victoria. With people in British Columbia eating a meal in a restaurant approximately 10 per cent of the time, it’s never been more important to be able to source out healthy options. With the new program, calorie and sodium information is prominently highlighted for all regular menu items, while other nutrients, including carbohydrates and fat, are also noted. The program also gives advice on daily calorie and

Minister of Health Michael de Jong. “With Informed Dining, we are partnering with B.C. restaurants to help make the healthy choice the easy choice.” sodium requirements. Excess weight can increase the risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and various cancers, so caloriecounting is an important part of a healthy diet. Eating too much sodium contributes to high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and kidney disease, making sodium another important piece of the healthy eating puzzle. “Healthy eating is a critical element in living a long and healthy life and avoiding cardiovascular disease,” says Gavin Arthur, vice-president of research and health promotion for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. “The Informed Dining program takes a positive step forward in providing people with information they can use in making informed choices while dining out.” The program is voluntary, but the provincial government is

encouraging every restaurant to join the initiative and make such information available. “We want to be part of the solution in making healthy choices, easy choices in B.C.,” says Vice-President of the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association Mark von Schellwitz. “This program has the potential to help restaurant patrons become more conscious about what they are eating – it also shines a light on those establishments already providing menu nutrition content while encouraging other restaurants to follow suit.” The provincial government has been working on this program since 2010, and has given restaurants several options for disclosing nutrition information, including a menu insert, a poster or a brochure. “I am proud that we have about 300 outlets across the province signed up to participate in this important program,” says Ian Tostenson, CEO and president of the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association. “I know that other business will continue to learn more about Informed Dining and sign up – this information is what our customers have been telling us they want, and it is our responsibility to provide it.” The initiative is part of the Healthy Families BC campaign, created by the Province to promote healthy lifestyles and prevent chronic disease. For more information, visit www. healthyfamiliesbc.ca/home/informed-dining. The website also features a contest with weekly draws and a grand prize to cook like a chef and learn from a dietitian.

STOP GUESSING

START ASKING GE T THE FAC TS Making informed menu choices can be challenging. But with the new Informed Dining program, restaurant-goers can now get the facts when dining out. Just look for the Informed Dining logo at participating restaurants and ask your server for nutrition information to help you make healthy choices from the menu. You can now be confident when eating at participating restaurants that you’ll have access to nutrition information before you make your menu choice. Stop guessing...and start asking!

Register for derby June 3 BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

The Mission Soapbox Derby is just over two weeks away, which means it’s time for local kids to register for the big race. Pre-race day is June 3, at the side entrance of Mission Secondary School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open for children aged eight to 14. Soapbox Derby Association president Aaron Theilade said they will bring out all of the cars and have the children weighed in the car after they register. Then, depending on weather conditions, they can go for a test drive. Race day on June 16 is expected to bring out 60 soapbox racing hopefuls, with fun activities complementing the

races such as a martial arts demonstration, and pudding and hot dog eating competitions. Registration forms are available in the VanCity Mission branch located at 150-32555 London Ave. and the cost is $25. The Soapbox Derby was revived in 1999 after a 25-year hiatus, but the race has a long and storied tradition in Mission. The first one was held in 1946 (called a “wildcat” race) as part of the Mission Board of Trade’s Strawberry Festival. By 1956 the event had become incredibly popular, drawing 20,000 spectators from all over B.C. complete with corporate sponsors. For more information visit www.missionsoapbox.com.

SPIRITUAL AND MATERIAL POSSESSIONS Various financial publications periodically list the wealthiest men and women in the world. These people are usually considered to be quite successful. It seems that material possessions and wealth are one way that we measure a person’s success and accomplishments. Having material possessions is fine and necessary for our existence. However, spiritual values are necessary for our relationship with God. Our Lord loves us and cares about all of our needs, especially our spiritual ones. We are told in the Bible, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul” (Mark 8:36). Throughout history, there have been numerous people in the world that may have been materially poor, yet were wealthy with God’s love. A wise person takes care of both their spiritual and material needs, and they recognize that God’s blessings are more important than the riches of the world.

Tips to control mosquitoes and Property taxes and home avoid transmission of diseases owner grants information Mosquito control is carried out by the Fraser Valley Regional District. Emphasis is placed on controlling larvae within bodies of standing water using natural biological control methods. Since mosquitoes require water to complete their development, removing any sources of standing water will reduce the number of places mosquitoes can live. Dump out any tires, wheelbarrows, buckets or children’s toys and change water in wading pools or bird baths weekly. Even blocked gutters and rain pipes can produce mosquitoes, so make sure these are cleared and flowing freely. The Health Authority recommends the

following measures to reduce the risk of being bitten by mosquitoes: • Using insect repellent containing DEET (10 per cent for children and up to 30 per cent for adults) when outdoors. • Avoiding mosquito laden areas during dawn and dusk. • Wearing loose, light colored clothing when outdoors including long-sleeved shirts and pants. • Applying tightfitting well maintained screens to doors and windows. • Keeping your lawn regularly mowed to decrease mosquito rest areas. • Eliminating or regularly changing any sources of stagnant water around your home such as saucers under flower pots, bird

baths, wading pools, and other areas where rainwater may collect. • Keep lawns, bushes and gardens well trimmed so as not to give mosquitoes places to rest during the hottest part of the day. For more information about West Nile Virus, prevention tips and

helpful links, please visit the BC Centre for Disease control website at www.bccdc.ca, the Fraser Health Authority (FHA) at www. fraserhealth.ca and the Fraser Valley Regional District at www. fvrd.bc.ca/Services/ mosquitocontrol/Pages/ default.aspx.

The music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Les Brown, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James and many others, had people dancing

cheek-to-cheek during the golden era of radio, and their music is still popular. Artists such as Michael Bublé, Natalie Cole, Diana Krall and even Rod Stewart have once again popularized these timeless songs. Guraliuk has been leading the Champagne Orchestra for more than 30 years. Since receiving a bachelor of music degree from the University of British Columbia in 1979, he has been actively involved in Vancouver’s musical community. Guraliuk has traveled to New York, New Orleans and

Havana to further study music. As a jazz musician, Guraliuk strives to attain a balance between emotion and technique and, above all, a sound that really swings. He has been a featured jazz soloist at concerts held at the Queen Elizabeth and Arts Club Theatres. With a natural flair for showmanship and a commercial approach to music, Guraliuk is an ideal dance band leader. As musical director, he has performed with the late Danny Kaye, headlined Las Vegas acts like Danny Gans and Fred Travelena, and with many of Vancouver’s finest performers such as Dee Daniels, Denzal Sinclaire, Tom Arntzen and Tatiana Hancheroff. Evans is a Vancouverbased international entertainer with a stage presence that sparkles and a powerful voice. She has performed at numerous corporate functions and international festivals in addition to gala shows in Hong Kong, Paris, Osaka plus a command performance in Kobe, Japan. Evans has been a featured vocalist in Reno and performed with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. She has also performed at Toronto’s Skydome Stadium and was the only entertainer to sing for visiting Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji at a prestigious event attended by 1,000 world leaders. Her credits also include numerous television and radio performances. As a solo cabaret performer she has amazed and delighted audiences worldwide singing in eight languages. Among them are Cantonese, Mandarin and Japanese. Evans has also performed on U.S. cruise ships, at a variety of North American private functions, nightclubs and festivals. Since 2003 she has performed with the Champagne Orchestra.

at Carrington!

C

arrington House Residence and Suites has filled an important gap in Mission — the need for more quality seniors’ residences offering some support, but still allowing our most valuable citizens to retain independence and dignity. “Live life the way you always have, only better,” is the motto for Carrington House, located on Sixth and Seventh Avenues in Mission. All three meals are served in the lovely dining room and the menu offers a variety of choices prepared on-site under the guidance of Red Seal chef, Robert Wentz. Bistro stations offering fresh fruit, homemade snacks and hot beverages are available on a self-serve basis throughout the day.

For residents’ comfort and convenience, there are a host of amenities including 24-hour emergency response from staff, weekly personal banking services with two tellers on site, hair salon, weekly housekeeping, towel and linen laundry services, air conditioning, indoor scooter parking, and more. Carrington House’s bus is available for residents to go on monthly outings, and the Shuttle Bus picks up and drops off people at the front door. Carrington strives towards community involvement in partnership with Lifetime Learning Centre, offering programs for seniors and Mission Community Services

Society, which hosts Lunch with a Bunch and a popular convenience shop. The monthly calendar is full of daily activities. You’ll never be bored living at Carrington. There is a library, a billiards lounge, theatre, cappuccino bar, hair salon and spa bath. All the suites are comfortable, and tastefully designed with seniors in mind. Nine-foot ceilings are standard, and the luxurious and spacious one-bedroom, two-bedroom and bachelor suites have great views and balconies. The bathrooms have walk-in showers with seats and grab bars and some with full bath tubs.

increasing needs for an aging population. Since 1972, MCS has addressed the needs of an older population with programs like Meals on Wheels, and later adding the Friendly Visitor Program, Seniors Connection, Lunch with a Bunch, Medical Transportation, and Seniors Shopping Trips. Meals on Wheels provides hot and cold meals to elderly community members who require this support. Meals are delivered by volunteers three days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The Friendly Visitor Program matches a senior with a volunteer visitor who connects with the senior by phone or in person on a regular basis. The program helps

seniors remain socially connected and provides an opportunity for seniors to access other services when needed. The Seniors Connection is an information and referral centre for seniors that coordinates other services as needed like medical transportation and a year-round income tax clinic. Volunteer drivers will take seniors to medical appointments, wait with them and return them home safely. Seniors Connection also facilitates an income tax clinic for low income seniors during tax season, also through the generous contributions of volunteers. Lunch with a Bunch takes seniors to one of the local seniors facilities and provides a

Seniors Week Celebrates the Valuable Contributions Seniors Make to our Community. The District of Mission, M Mayor and Council encourage you to take a senior out d during this special

social time for seniors to connect with others and have a great meal at the same time. Finally, Seniors Go Shopping puts three or four seniors together along with a volunteer driver. All of the Seniors Services provided by MCS focus on independence and well being by helping seniors remain in their residence as long as they can while also providing as many social activities as possible to maintain their quality of life. All of these services would not be possible without the generosity of the volunteers who contribute their time. And given the increasing number of seniors, MCS is also in need of volunteers. There is immediate need for volunteers in the Seniors Connection, Meals on Wheels delivery drivers, Friendly Visitor volunteers, Medical Transportation and volunteers to take seniors shopping. If you or someone you know is interested in this amazing opportunity to share your life with a senior, then please call Felice or Sandra at 604826-3634. Mission Community Services is proud to be serving the seniors here, and we look forward to another 40 years of helping seniors maintain their independence and quality of life.

The Community You’ve Been Looking For. Freedom, Comfort, Convenience

“It’s the only place I ever wanted to go” That’s what one of our buyers told us last week. And why did she say that? Because of our amazing lifestyle. We offer: • A great financial opportunity: preserve your capital, free up some equity, & never worry again about the real estate market • An instant community of friends and neighbours: enjoy a vibrant social life in our central amenity room and adjacent patio • Simplicity: the only decision you will have to make is what to have for dinner • Sponsorship by a trusted community-based non-profit organization

Life Lease vs. Condo The choice is clear. For downsizers, life lease makes a lot of sense. If you like the idea of no Property Transfer Tax, choose a life lease. How about no special assessments, ever? Choose a life lease. Want to avoid strata councils? Choose a life lease. Choose Cedar Valley Manor. The sole purpose of the society that will manage Cedar Valley Manor, the Mission Association for Seniors Housing, is to provide quality, nonprofit housing for retirees and seniors.

Lifetime Learning brings in Royal visitors June 2 H igh tea with royalty? Come and enjoy the fun with local volunteers and look-alikes in the roles of Queen Mother, Prince Philip, other family members, and Commonwealth High Commissioners on Saturday, June 2. This entertaining celebration of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II is being hosted by Lifetime Learning at the Cedarbrooke Chateau with master of ceremonies Neville Cox leading the fun. The opening procession includes a piper, Air Cadets trooping in the flags, local dignitaries, and, of course, members of the “Royal family.” Guests are encouraged to dress up in their royal fashions, represent a Commonwealth country, or simply wear hat and gloves, and have a photo

taken with their favourite Royal. Archival footage of the actual coronation in 1952 was broadcast on CBC, and guests will share stories and memories of the monarchy. Of course, a truly British high tea will be served. Throughout 2012, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be celebrated around the world, particularly in the 54 Commonwealth countries which make up almost a quarter of the population of the world. Other groups in Mission including the Farmers’ Market will join the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, with special activities and events.

If we could have a lifetime wish, and one DREAM that could come true, we would pray to God with all our hearts just to see and speak to you. A thousand words won’t bring you back, we know because we’ve tried. And neither will a million tears, we know, because we’ve cried. You left behind our broken hearts and precious memories to. But we never wanted memories we only wanted you. Forever in our hearts. Love you always, Sharol, Tammy (Cory), Chrissy (Lyle), Laura (Sunny), Trisha (Dave) and grandchildren.

God gave us a wonderful Mother to love a lifetime through, Our Mother encouraged us in everything we did. Our Mother was so many people blended into one, a source of inspiration she was happy and full of fun. Our Mother heard our every word she listened with her heart. Her mastery of Motherhood was a very special art. Our Mother shared and always cared she thought of others first and she loved us just like always even when we were at our worst. Our Mother brought such happiness with the kindness that she gave and created a good example simply with the life she lived. We only had one Mother to look up to and to praise, and no one else in all the world could every take her place. We miss our Mom each and every day.

It’s with heavy hearts we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved mother and grandmother. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Gudrun (Doug), Kenneth, Linda, Robert and Annmarie (Saro); grandchildren Gordon, Micheal, Lindsey, Nicholas and Jonnie; sister Ella (Borge) and brother Hans (Boje). She was predeceased by her husband Gunnar and her sisters Karen and Asta. Marie was born in Alsoenderup, Denmark but lived her final years in Bradner. Until recently she was an avid bowler. Mom enjoyed watching game shows and doing crossword puzzles. She always had a smile on her face and will be remembered for her kind and gentle heart. We love and miss her. There will be no service by her request. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Online condolences to the family may be made to: www.wiebeandjeskefh.com
