For the past 10 years, a large collection of artifacts from Agassiz's farming and forestry history was under lock and key, tucked away in storage. Milk cans, fire hoses, farming tools, carts and more weren't able to make the move from the old museum at the research station, the newer site on Pioneer Avenue. So they stayed there, all but forgotten. Now, thanks to a grant from Farm Credit Canada's AgriSpirit program, these historic artifacts have a new home. The Agassiz-Harrison Museum
officially opened its new “barn” on Tuesday afternoon, giving thanks to the many people and businesses that helped make the building a reality. A select few people gathered inside the new building, getting a close up look at the pieces that have been out of view so long. The barn will serve as an on-site storage, but viewing windows will be opened during business hours, to allow the public to have a sneak peek back on the past. “This all used to be housed in a gazebo at the research station,” Judy Pickard says, looking around the barn on Tuesday. Even some of the materials used
to build the barn have a bit of history. The smaller windows on the building came from the Valdoorn farm, and the large barn doors that can be seen on the back wall came from the Hatt farm, which was previously the McRae farm. Former mayor Wes Johnson was on hand for the opening, along with current mayor John Van Laerhoven. He told Pickard after the ceremony that it was he who built those barn doors, many years ago. The wood used on the outside of the building was donated by Hank and Elma Lanting, and the forms were donated by Spaeti Construction. Many local

businesses provided supplies for the construction, including Peters Electric, Kent Building Supplies, Watkins Sawmill,Steve Dargatz Glass and Door, Canex, Agassiz Ready Mix, Twin Cedar Roofing, Pioneer Timbr Mart and Doall Contracting. The building wouldn't have been possible without the community pitching in to help, Pickard said. And all of those involved were invited to the museum on Tuesday, where a table filled with homemade pie was waiting for them. “I'm really proud of what we have here,” Pickard said. firstname.lastname@example.org

Story Time gets new coordinator Kids will get moving with this summer’s story lineup Jessica Peters THE OBSERVER
This year’s Story Time in the Park line-up promises to be a very ‘moving’ one. Kids will be moving their arms and moving their legs. They’ll be moving silly and moving slowly. By the end of the summer, they’ll be moving all over. “We’re going to be focusing on physical activity this year,” says Mallory Lothian, the program’s new coordinator. “We have a story about yoga,” she said. “And we have dancing stories and climbing stories.” Story Time in the Park was started many years ago by Heather Stewin, and has been entertaining families on a regular, rotating schedule in Hope, Boston Bar, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs every summer since. At each Story Time stop, pre-selected books are read aloud by volunteers from within the community. Families then get a copy of that book, a free snack or lunch, and are treated

to some live entertainment. For the last four years, it was all coordinated by Kyle Kjemhus and Dustin Martin. But this year, both have moved onto different ventures, making room for Lothian to take over. Monday was her first day on the job, and she’s been busy organizing the food, books and volunteers for the upcoming season. Born and raised in
Hope, Lothian just may have found the perfect summer job with Story Time in the Park. During the school year, she studies at UFV in Abbotsford, and is working toward her bachelor of general studies. But for nine summers, she volunteered at Camp Squeah, and most recently she’s been working as a youth group leader at the Grace Baptist Church. Even as that position ended, she
still volunteers with the kids there, alongside her husband, Nolan. “For teenagers, it just seems so hard for them to find people who are a positive influence in their lives,” she said. “It’s nice to be that positive person in their lives, and it’s good for them to have someone their age to look up to.” In fact, it was her own positive experiences as a youth at Camp Squeah that helped her decide to return as a volunteer. “I knew volunteers had run it when I was there and I wanted to give kids the same experience I had,” Lothian said. She’s looking forward to continuing working with kids in her new role, and is familiar with the program. At age 25, she knows the previous organizers Kjemhus and Martin, and has even had the chance to stop in at events in the past. Story Time in the Park starts up again the first week of July, traveling around the Fraser Cascade spreading the joys of literacy everywhere it goes. The schedule is Mondays in Boston Bar and
Police suspicion nets prolific offender arrest An Agassiz RCMP officer was making a routine patrol through the Cheam Indian Reserve when he spotted a male in a parked car in a driveway recently. RCMP say it looked to the officer like the male was working on the vehicle stereo. The officer stopped and approached the vehicle while the male ran out and into a residence. Officers set up outside the residence for a short time and the male, identified as Agassiz prolific of-
fender Allan Rusk, exited the residence. Rusk, 29 of Agassiz, was arrested for two outstanding warrants without incident. “The officer recognized Rusk as a prolific offender,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “One of the reasons the program is successful is because of how familiar the officers become with the prolific offenders in their area. That is what happened in this particular case.” Rusk was given a 30 day jail term for the outstanding warrants he was wanted on.

Teens to receive Urquhart Award Betty Urquhart was one of UFVâ€™s first employees, and her commitment to building a strong relationship between UFV and the Fraser Valley community is one that lasts to this day. When she passed away In 1995, UFV renamed its community service award in her honour . The Betty Urquhart annually recognizes groups or individuals that exemplify Urquhartâ€™s commitment to community. This year the Betty Urquhart award is shared between two dedicated groups whose hard work is guaranteed to tug the heartstrings, one of which is the teen/ senior program at the Agassiz Centre for Education (ACE). Some of the teenage members of the program will be on hand to receive the award on behalf of ACE at UFVâ€™s Convocation ceremonies next week. Sandy Balascak, who runs the senior/teen program through ACE, has no doubt that the teens in the program are deserving of this award. Some of the students, seniors, and community members involved will be at the ceremony to receive the award on behalf of ACE. Balascak says the program began when Frank and Eunice Royle, two
seniors from the Agassiz Harrison senior peer support group, approached her about her studentsâ€™ reputation as â€œbad kids.â€? â€œThey were even a little afraid of my kids,â€? Balascak says, and when the seniors suggested senior/teen days to help fix that perception, she jumped right on board. â€œThe perception was that they were broken
and more kids wanted to go, and more and more seniors wanted to be involved too,â€? Balascak says. â€œWe went from a half-empty home to a packed hall.â€? The program gained a lot of attention this past Christmas when the teens in the program gave up their Christmas morning to spend it with seniors who had no family. The students
â€œTheyâ€™re all good kids. Iâ€™m just glad the community got a chance to see that.â€? Sandy Balascak
and were sent to this alternative program to be fixed,â€? Balascak explains, â€œBut a lot of kids are here by choice because they knew they werenâ€™t fitting in or learning at a normal high school.â€? Balascak says some people thought she was crazy for trying to put seniors and teens together, but she had a good feeling about it. Sure enough, while the kids werenâ€™t too keen on the idea to begin with, the program soon blossomed. â€œIt only took a couple of afternoons and the next thing I knew, more
ran fundraising events, wrapped gifts, and arrived at the legion hall at six-thirty in the morning to have breakfast ready by eight. â€œThey just jumped at the chance,â€? says Balascak. â€œAnd the ones who couldnâ€™t be there Christmas morning were still part of the fundraising. Everybody pitched in.â€? Now in its third year, the teen/senior program is more successful than ever, and Balascak looks forward to hosting events for years to come, including a repeat of Christmas morning. Both teens and seniors
have come a long way since the programâ€™s inception, and now get together on a regular basis to have lunch and spend an afternoon together playing bingo or card games. Balascak is also quick to mention a long list of community members that made the group possible, including the unending support of the Legion, which donates the use of the hall for almost every senior/teen event, including the Christmas breakfast. None of it, Balacak says, would be possible without the support she and the students have had from every angle of the community. And itâ€™s unsurprising that once teens start the program, Balascak says not many give it up. The kids dedicate themselves to attending the afternoons and events often for as long as they attend ACE, she explains. â€œAnd sometimes I canâ€™t even get rid of them after they graduate!â€? Balascak says with a laugh. â€œThese kids have become so community-minded.â€? The kids are so willing to volunteer, in fact, that Balascak hopes to set up a volunteer network in the coming months to give the teens a chance to pitch in wherever
theyâ€™re needed, from libraries to homeless shelters. Meanwhile, Balascak sees her students go on to study in social work, seniors care, trades, and dental programs. And no matter what they do, she is proud of each and every one of them. â€œThereâ€™s a reason I called it â€˜when â€˜badâ€™ kids go good,â€™â€? Balascak says. â€œTheyâ€™re all good kids. Iâ€™m just glad the community got a chance to see that.â€?

Opinion Just one day
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
It has been a gruesome few weeks in the news, provincially, nationally and internationally. Chilling stories of murders and body parts, a new drug that induces violent rages, and several violent deaths have hit many of us close to home — at least at heart. No one would want their life taken from them violently. And, even worse, no one could imagine their son or daughter as a murderer. That could be why, of all the work that the provincial government has done recently, establishing Family Day is easily one of the most important. Sure, one day isn't enough time to show your children you love them. And of course, just one extra day isn't enough for a family to bond. But it's a start. And in these days of micromanaged time, microwaved dinners and texted conversations, most families could use a little kick in the pants as a reminder that 'together time' is important. The whole idea of Family Day is a fairly new one, coming to popularity over the last decade in singular provinces across Canada and in a handful of other countries. While it may not be entirely popular with small businesses, who will have to pay their staff for yet another day of not working, it's a boon to families who are working so steadily to pay the bills that family time is slipping through their hands. It's one more day that families can sit down for a real breakfast, lunch and dinner together. It's one more afternoon that can include a walk in the park. Another day to not rush here and there, and maybe start a conversation with a child that could have some impact. For the average B.C. family, scrambling around from school and work to sports and other commitments, just one day together — sanctioned by the government — could become a tradition that binds its members together.

Yes 47% No 52%
Chaos reigns in a busy legislature B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The old saying goes that if you like sausages and laws, you shouldn’t watch either one being made. The legislature’s sausage factory worked overtime to crank out a pile of legislative change before the government choked off debate and shut it down for the summer. This is after a dozen complicated bills were stuffed into the hopper in the final month. For the first time in B.C. history, debate was carried on in three separate chambers to try to get through it all. It created a chaotic scene, with politicians and reporters dashing around trying to create the impression they were on top of it all. The NDP opposition screamed bloody murder about this travesty,
especially as the clock ran down last week and bills were assigned a token 30 or 45 minutes to meet the B.C. Liberal government’s arbitrary deadline. Alas, what little time was allowed for the opposition to question legislation was largely frittered away with the usual partisan sniping that substitutes for alternative ideas. The good news is that this mad rush wasn’t a calculated scheme to ram through unpopular, unfair measures. Quite the contrary. The B.C. Liberal government’s back is to the wall, trying to do what the public and circumstances demand and save its own skin. Here’s a partial list of the marching orders. Get rid of the harmonized sales tax and bring back a computerized version of the old, inefficient provincial sales tax. Unclog the court system, which has become so constipated that a Stanley Cup riot fool can’t even plead guilty in a reasonable time.

job of creating a modern system for the archaic sales tax was the main cause of the legislative logjam, tying up government lawyers and delaying drafting of other bills. Small businesses that paid $3,000 to convert to HST get to pay another

$3,000 to go back, and we had all better hope the new computer software works. Speaking of computers, one of the laws passed amid the shouting is one that establishes an online system for disputing traffic tickets. Police will print out tickets from their cars instead of hand-writing them, and drivers will have an alternative way to argue about whether they really ran that red light. Fighting a ticket in court now takes seven to 18 months, tying up judges, court registry staff and police. An administrative system won’t keep them all out of court, but the government hopes to reduce the average resolution time to 90 days and save $8 million a year or more. A similar administrative system is being established for small civil claims and strata property disputes. Some legislation is to fix

earlier screw-ups. A judge tossed out B.C.’s most heavy-handed administrative penalties for failing a roadside blood alcohol test, so the government brought in a new version that allows for another administrative appeal. The mistake of making transit operate on a poorly policed “honour system” goes back to Social Credit days. There is finally a system to enforce collection of fines, on those rare occasions when someone is ticketed for taking a free ride. Even with the last-minute rush, four bills couldn’t be rammed through. Since the legislature will almost certainly have to be recalled to impose a contract on teachers this fall, the government would do well to provide a couple of weeks for orderly debate at that time.

Mailbag Lake Errock residents chip away at gravel pit problem It has been a year and a half since this application was made, and the community remains vehemently opposed. What has become absolutely clear is that the permit process for gravel pits is designed for approval and to exclude the affected community’s concerns. The many problems with open gravel pits so close to our community are well documented and, should this permit be granted by the provincial government, it will demonstrate that the permit process is a sham. If Lake Errock cannot stop this mine, no community can. The environmental studies related to this
permit application were bought and paid for by the mining interests and do not even consider the impact on we who live nearby; a case of funding bias in research if there ever was one. Residents who live near the proposed site were not notified of the permit application, no sign has ever erected at the site, just a small advertisement in the newspapers of neighbouring towns. Many residents are only finding out about it at this late hour. Municipal zoning is simply ignored in this process. The list of problems with the process is too exhaustive to outline in full here. The government
and the industry avoid public meetings if at all possible. After an intense campaign the people of Lake Errock have now been granted a public meeting on a date as yet unannounced. The history of this kind of public meeting is that they rarely stop, or even hold up, the permit being granted. If the evidence against the mine is extremely damning the process may be slowed up, but the mining interests just get to reapply until the permit is granted. If this permit application is granted, it will guarantee years, if not decades, of conflict between the mining interests and the community.
So be aware citizens of the Fraser Valley, if this
permit goes through, your community could

The proliferation of gravel pits in the Fraser Valley is a concern for communities throughout the region. Yet another permit application further threatens the small community of Lake Errock. We have endured one, now exhausted, mine for enough years to know that gravel pits make extremely bad neighbours. Rather than reclaim the eyesore that is the old mine, as was the original promise, operators are seeking to double the size of the scar on the landscape and use the old mine as a staging and processing area, despite the acknowledged risks to traffic and the community’s concerns.

He created an oversized loaf of bread named the Sasquatch Loaf which became famous when it was featured during the BC Centennial. His Sputnik Loaf marked the advent of the space age. • Kent District Council turned dog control over to the SPCA. An Inspector was hired to do 24 patrols a year, mainly between April and October.

Entertainment Aaron Moran greets visitors to his opening reception at the Ranger Station Art Gallery. Moran is the artist in residence this year at the gallery. His show runs through the month of June. JESSICA PETERS OBSERVER
Solitude offers focus for artist
YARD WORK MADE EASY NEW LOW PRICE
Living in and among nature at its finest hasn’t distracted Aaron Moran from the true nature of his work. “I’m not necessarily inspired by the elements,” he said during an opening reception for his show, Excavations, at the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison this month. Moran has been living in the space above the gallery since September, the most current in an ever-growing list of ‘artists in residence.’ “I don’t do representational work,” he explained. So, you won’t see flowers and trees when you go to view his work. No birds, no sweeping vistas and not even portraits. But that all doesn’t mean he isn’t appreciating his surroundings. Living in the studio, away from his home town of Langley, has provided the chance to really delve into his own art. “There is lots of solitude here, and lots of time to do my work,” he said. “I would do this again in a heartbeat. I never realized how much I like it this way.” Being able to completely focus on his art, while still maintaining his position at UFV as their print, media and sculpture technician, has allowed Moran to complete his “most cohesive collection” ever. Over the past few months, Moran has been creating three-dimensional sculptures, re-using building materials that were donated or salvaged. To some, the result is a colourful, modern look at structure and development. To others, the show may just be colourful and modern. “If on the surface you can say ‘wow this is beautiful,’ then great,” he said. “But if you can appreciate it on some level” that may be that we need to “do something with the garbage” we’re creating through developments. The gallery is open Monday to Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Harrison Art Show 2012 was a fabulous success. The combined presentation and the talent of the participating artists garnered glowing comments from the public, who attended the sixth annual two-day event in Harrison recently. The international artist/author, Richard McDiarmid, was this yearâ€™s featured artist. His enthusiasm and passion for the arts was easily transferred to others. McDiarmid generously shared his knowledge and experiences of the art world by mentoring several artists during the show. The public was privileged to view several of his awesome paintings and his books. In his book, McDiarmid has included a painting that he had begun to demonstrate at Agassiz Monday Painters, and since completed. The talents of the 32 artists at the show were over the top. The

diverse pieces of art displayed comprised many media including acrylic, watercolour, pastel, oil, graphite, pen and ink, mixed, and photography. The sculpture assemblage displays, particularly â€œShocking Ehâ€?, created great interests and discussions surrounding the issues of the misuse of the environment and its future. This year another venue was included, jewelery. Each piece of jewelery was beautifully designed, one of a kind pieces of art that drew attention from so many. The Harrison Art Show has gained in popularity due to the support and collaboration of all the artists and volunteers involved to make this event an impressive showcase for the arts. As a visitor from Montreal wrote in the guest book, â€œFound beauty in the smallest of places.â€? -Submitted by Marg Doman
