The provincial government stepped in on Thursday to secure the vessels.
Seven derelict ships secured Province has stepped in to ensure vessels owned by Langley man are not washed down the Fraser MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
A piling company hired by the province worked through the night on Thursday and into Friday morning to secure the former Queen of Sidney ferry and six other derelict ships moored at a Langley man’s waterfront property in Mission. Bridges, power transmission lines and the Fort Langley house boating community along the Fraser River were at risk if the seven rundown ships were to be pulled loose by floodwaters and swept downstream. B.C.’s Environment Minister, Terry Lake, intervened on Tuesday, issuing an emergency declaration to use special powers to deal with the improperly secured vessels, which include the dilapidated ferry.
'Highest Prices Paid for Gold & Silver'
A marine expert had determined the vessels were at risk of breaking free of their moorings due to their poor condition, combined with high river flows and flood debris that could put more strain on mooring lines. The ferry and six other ships are owned by Aldergrove resident Gerald Tapp and his brother Bob. The ferry was recently filmed for an episode of Canadian Pickers. Inside the ferry, the owners have filled the various decks with classic cars. “Five piles were driven on the forward part of the Queen of Sidney and on the other vessels ahead of her and on the river bank,” said Capt. Philip Nelson, who was contracted by the province to oversee the emergency job. “The five piles driven onto the ferry and

on the river banks are 70 to 100 feet in length and were driven 35 feet into the riverbed and through two hard layers of bed rock, so they are very secure,” said Nelson. “We also attached steel mooring lines to the ferry, so I am very confident that the Queen of Sidney and the other vessels can withstand the rigors of this year’s freshet.” Nelson said they put new lines on the other vessels to reinforce the mooring already there. “So at this point in time we don’t see any difficulties with the Queen of Sidney,” said Nelson. Environmental emergency response officer Ken Meeks said the one-in-40-year flood underway, the heavy debris already moving downstream and the additional vessels all tethered to the Queen of Sidney made the situation more dangerous than in past years. The seven vessels together weigh more than 7,000 tonnes, he said. Meeks said the province aims to recover costs of the emergency response from the

Tapps. They also pose an environmental risk because of the potential presence of hazardous materials, physical damage to downstream habitat and the risk of secondary spills if one of the derelict ships hit another vessel in the river. River Forecast Centre head Dave Campbell said the Fraser River peaked early Friday with Mission gauge reading at 6.25 metres. Levels on the Fraser were expected to steadily decline over the long weekend. The region has seen key infrastructure fail before due to high water on the Fraser. Last summer, a BC Hydro transmission tower between Surrey and Coquitlam fell into the river, causing extensive power outages and forcing the closure of the Port Mann Bridge and other roads where highvoltage lines dangled dangerously close to cars. — with files from Adrian McNair, Black Press

Sit back and enjoy the ride Pacific Commuters Club offers a luxury shuttle from Langley-Cloverdale to downtown Vancouver GARY AHUJA Times Reporter
“The drive makes me want to poke my eyes out.” Kristine Carrick blurted the words out with laughter as she sat down in the comfortable confines of Pacific Commuter on Thursday (June 28) morning. Carrick was referring to commuting from the Fraser Valley to Vancouver. And her sentiments are very likely shared by thousands of others who shuttle back and forth across the Port Mann Bridge for work every day. “In transit, you are squished in like a sardine,” added Maryanne Lechleiter. The pair were riding the bus as part of two media tours in advance of Pacific Commuter’s July 3 launch. While Carrick now works in Langley, a few years back, her job required the occasional trip to downtown Vancouver. Had this been a reasonable option for her back then, she said she would have been all over the idea. The idea is the brainchild of childhood friends Darius Kovacs and Chris Geoghegan. “I was really tired thinking about how much time I was wasting on my morning commute,” Geoghegan said. “This is out of necessity.” Kovacs lives in Langley, while Geoghegan is a Cloverdale resident. Both are 30 years old and work in downtown Vancouver. They came up with the idea a few months ago during one of their many commutes. And the end result was Pacific Commuter, which they describe as a club, not a business. They are not in this to specifically make money, the men say, but rather for their own benefit as well. “It is like the hair club,” Kovacs joked referring to the Hair Club for Men commercial. Members — there are already close to 20 — pay a $5 annual fee, plus $395 per month for those who commit to a full year membership. The alternative is $495 for a monthly membership. They are offering a free one-week trial. By comparison — using average gas

And this does not include the cost of tolling for the new Port Mann Bridge. That works out to a monthly savings of $90 per month and $1,080 per year. Members receive a spot on the 42-person luxury bus, which has two pick-up spots — near the Langley Airport (21277 56 Ave.) and at Clayton Crossing (68 Avenue at Fraser Highway) — and three drop-off locations — the Sheraton Wall Centre, Waterfront Station and Coal Harbour. A third pick-up location is in the works, depending on what suits club members. The vehicle has reclining plush seats, tray tables, a kitchenette, bathroom, and WiFi connection. “When you are a contractor, time is
money,” said Kovacs. “The fact I can work on my way to work alone makes the cost of membership worth its weight in gold.” “I was really tired of thinking about how much time I was wasting on my morning commute,” Geoghegan said. “I realized this didn’t exist and about how many people — not to mention the environment — could benefit from it. “It is a much needed connection for residents of Langley and Surrey who make the long commute downtown every working day.” The pair, who came up with the idea a couple of months ago, estimate that their start-up costs have been about a combined $3,000. After renting the bus — which means not having to do maintenance or provide fuel

cuts down on costs — they set up a website and began planning the logistics. “Our experience isn’t running a bus company,” Geoghegan said. “We see our job as getting this group together and providing a good experience.” The free time on the bus should benefit the riders in a variety of ways. For one, they can use the time to catch up on emails or just surf the web. And it should help them relax after a long day at work. Another benefit is it will take vehicles off the road. Of the club members already signed up, Kovacs said they are not current transit users but are people who drive to work. And if the demand is there, they are open to getting more buses and possibly expanding east to Abbotsford. Visit pacificcommuter.com to learn more.

A 42-year-old Langley woman is in critical but stable condition in hospital suffering from head injuries after being struck by a pickup truck while walking in a marked crosswalk on 200 Street on Wednesday afternoon. Around 2:45 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to the intersection of 200 Street and 53 Avenue where the victim was crossing at the intersection when she was hit by a 2004 Dodge truck that had just made a left turn southbound onto 200 Street, said Langley RCMP Sgt. Ravinder Pawar. The driver of the truck stayed at the scene. The victim was transported via air ambulance and police say she suffered head injuries when she was hit.
As of late last week, she was listed in critical but stable condition at Royal Columbian Hospital, said Pawar. Langley Victim Services unit provide assistance to those involved. The accident took place around five minutes before school let out at Nicomekl Elementary. The road was closed for hours while the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstruction team assisted the Langley traffic service with the investigation. It isn’t known at this time if she was walking to pick up a child at Nicomekl Elementary schoo. Discussion on the Langley Times website indicates that the crosswalk where this woman was hit can be dangerous, with many motorists speeding through it and other drivers being distracted. At this time, the driver has not been charged.

Charges laid in multiple business holdups DAN FERGUSON Black Press
A 29-year-old Surrey man has been charged with eight counts of robbery in connection with a series of holdups, including those at three Booster Juice stores in South Surrey and Langley. The charges also relate to incidents at three Subway outlets and one Quizno’s in Surrey, as well as a Langley tanning salon. The robberies took place between June 2 and June 14, Surrey Provincial Court records show. Clayton Norris is due back in court July 3. More charges are possible, police said. Security footage from the holdup at the Langley Booster Juice showed a Caucasian man in his 20s, wearing a hoodie and a glove on one hand, who
threatened a store cashier with a knife. The suspect was wearing sunglasses and a baseball hat with “Police” embroidered on the front. The incident was one of three robberies at the chain of juice bars in less than two weeks: On June 3, the Booster Juice outlet at 15161 Hwy. 10 in South Surrey was robbed at 7:30 p.m. by a man with a knife; on June 7, another South Surrey Booster Juice store, at 15355 24 Ave., was robbed around 2:30 p.m.; and on June 11, the Langley Booster Juice at 20159 88 Ave. was robbed around 5:15 p.m. In each case, the robber fled on foot with a few hundred dollars. Langley RCMP said the suspect was arrested as a result of a

Why ban the bottle?
he B.C. Teachers Federation has surprisingly agreed to an extension of a contract with the B.C. Public Schools Employers’ Association. The announcement Tuesday evening caught many observers flat-flooted. It was widely assumed that the government would call the legislature into session over the summer to impose a contract on the two parties, as bargaining has been underway for more than a year with virtually no progress. A three-day strike, report card withdrawals, ban on extracurricular activities and numerous court challenges have all been part of the landscape this year. Education Minister George Abbott said that the movement by the two sides in the contract dispute occurred in recent days, with both sides giving up demands in exchange for a contract that will expire in a year. In essence, the contract dispute has been put off until the provincial election, set for next May. It will be interesting to see if a contract can be reached in the six weeks between that election and the expiry of this latest contract, no matter which party forms government. Neither side in this dispute has covered itself in glory. The BCTF, which claims to be non-partisan but in fact is as political as any political party, has sacrificed the best interests of students and parents to pursue the narrow self-interest of teachers. Teachers refused to do report cards until ordered to do so by the Labour Relations Board. They have refused to meet with parents on many occasions. They have deprived students of activities which are an integral part of the learning experience. They do have some legitimate concerns, in particular about class composition, but their demands for exorbitant wage increases and time off for the flimsiest of reasons did not bring the public on side. The government, for its part, has let this dispute drag on for far too long. Once again, it is students and parents who have paid a steep price for the horrible labour relations record involving the BCTF and the provincial government. In case some people have forgotten, the BCTF’s record in negotiating with past NDP governments wasn’t much better. If there is a new government in May, as seems likely, it is no guarantee that labour relations involving the BCTF will improve. All that happened last week is this — the ball was kicked a little farther down the road.

he first two resolutions that require a municipality to become a Blue Community are obvious – recognizing water as a human right and promoting publicly financed, owned and operated water and wastewater services go without saying. But the third resolution, banning the sale of bottled water in public facilities and at municipal events, wades into the arena of unfair competition, and it also contradicts current municipal policy. It’s no wonder council had such difficulty with it. On the former point, is it realistic, or even legal, to ban a product that is perfectly healthy for the people who choose to consume it? Is it government’s place to eliminate a choice for its residents? One aspect of council’s decision focused on reducing greenhouse gases. Producing and shipping bottled water does generate greenhouse gases, but under that auspice, should we not ban all vending machine drinks, or any other product that comes wrapped in plastic and is shipped? For people who prefer not to drink out of public fountains, and many don’t, bottled water provides an alternative to fountain water and sugary drinks like pop and juice. Which brings us to the city’s Healthy Choices policy, established in 2008. That policy aimed to provide more healthy choices for people purchasing products at city facilities and concessions in an effort to promote activity and good health. By banning the sale of bottled water, people using city facilities now must choose between drinking fountains and sugary drinks, or they have to bring their own water, likely bottled water from another vendor. There is no real reason to ban bottled water. Municipalities have every opportunity to promote their own water services without washing away people’s choice. —Nanaimo News Bulletin The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Would lights have been less pricey? Editor: I doubt whether anybody would dispute the fact that, as a means of controlling traffic movement, a set of traffic lights is far superior to a traffic circle (roundabout?). Having said that, it would be interesting to know how much the traffic circle at the junction of 56 Avenue and 232 Street will finally cost, not forgetting the importing and later removal of all the stone and blocks of concrete, re-positioning the electricity pylons, expropriation of small areas of property at the four corners and replacing fencing at those points. Then we come to the really expensive stuff — re-doing the whole area (which entailed using some pretty expensive equipment plus all the materials and labour involved. Compared with this I must imagine that the cost of erecting a set of traffic lights must be absolutely minimal by comparison. I have heard talk that a traffic circle will add character to the area, which is all good and well, but does that warrant such enormous expense, to say nothing of the inconvenience that the construction of this traffic circle has caused? And, believe me, the inconvenience will not end once construction has been completed. Brian King Langley

The new roundabout at 56 Avenue and 232 Street is now operational, but while one reader wonders if it is the most cost-effective solution to the daily gridlock at the intersection, another is encouraging drivers to learn to use it properly.
Secret to the circle is learning to merge Editor: The 232 Street and 56 Avenue roundabout is coming together slowly. The traffic flow is much improved, when it is used correctly. On a recent day when I used it at about 5 p.m., a time when traffic often was backed up, we all just sailed right through. However, it is clear that many people have absolutely no idea how to use the roundabout. I have heard many people complain about drivers turning left and going the wrong way, stopping and not entering the roundabout for long periods of time. Would you consider publishing an article on how to use a roundabout properly? This
would educate everyone on the correct way to use a roundabout. To me, it’s all summed up in one word — merge. It’s as simple as that. We need some help before more accidents happen there. Joanne Bonetti Langley Editor’s note — An excellent and simple instruction on how to use roundabouts is available online at http://www.th.gov. bc.ca/roundabouts. This information is relevant to the Langley roundabouts, as it has been prepared by the B.C. ministry of transportation and highways.
Editor: In regards to the story about coyotes in Langley and area (The Times, June 19), where do people think they are? We are building and developing. and forcing them and dozens of other types of wildlife out of their homes. The coyote is guilty of nothing more than hunting food in an area that was theirs a short time ago. Teach your children to be wildlife savvy. I taught my boys that 30-odd years ago. Today we live with this philosophy — share this planet. On a weekly basis, I, my boys who are now grown and my grandchildren travel in areas where a coyote would be the least of our worries. We are in areas where there are grizzly bears, cougars and the like. Everyone should take responsibility and learn. I could go on and on. I have been studying for the last year or more on this very subject. I hope to be involved in a program that all can and will benefit from. In the meantime, I urge people to educate themselves and their children. Care for your animals and make sure they are within eyesight. I can assure you that some of your ancestors didn’t kill animals because it was easier than learning to share this planet. All wildlife is here for a reason. Humans have depended on all animals since the begining of time. I believe in this approach — do not kill, relocate. Sherene Storkson, Langley
A job with CTF is nice work if you can get it Editor: I read with much interest with the editor’s comment on June 12 and the June 14 letter from Lee Lockwood, concerning Jordan Bateman and the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. CTF has five regional directors, Bateman being one of them. The CTF is well-known as being an The
incubator for baby politicians looking forward to bigger and better dreams up the political ladder. It claims to have 40,000 members, at an annual cost of $70 a year for membership, which equates to approximately $2.8 million divided among five regional directors and a small
staff. Doing the math, I estimate that the least-paid among them could make at least $50,000 yearly. Not bad for a group that informs the public what we already know about government misspending. CTF gets it information from whistleblowers, by hanging around Parliament and the media,
then announce their big news or, as I like to call it, their five minutes of fame, to relay to us information we already know. The CTF has no power to invoke any kind of change, because if they did, they would be rallying the people and heading a tax revolt in this country, and especially in this “I cannot afford
to live in B.C. any more” province. If that were to happen, I personally would pat Bateman on the back and say, “good job, son, well done.” As for right now, it just looks like a pretty good gig if you can get it. J. Cartwright, Langley

Rapid bus a go, despite lack of funding source MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
Nobody knows where the funding will come from yet, but a rapid bus will be crossing the new Port Mann bridge and using the Langley Park and Ride, says B.C.’s Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom. “The last time we met with the minister, he said clearly to build the Port Mann, a bus
lane and the park and ride and to not have a rapid bus makes no sense whatsoever,” said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who is vice-chair of the Mayors’ Council for TransLink. “We still have a $30 million gap and we still have the outcome of the audit where we may find additional savings,” Fasssbender said. “Either way, the minister said he will work
with us to find a way to get the rapid bus running. After all, the province put in significant money on the Number One for dedicated bus lanes, and not to use them?” Not to mention the province’s multi-million dollar Park and Ride and Transit Exchange at 202 Street interchange, including a dedicated underpass for the rapid bus to get onto the freeway.
Fassbender is so passionate about the rapid line that he is even willing to “kick in property tax for the next two years.”
Fassbender said the rapid bus won’t just be used by Langley residents. There are plenty of people commuting to Langley for work.
“I would support that even though I don’t want to use property tax as the way to fund TransLink,” he said. He said there needs
to be a sustainable, long term plan to fund TransLink. He is still an advocate of road pricing (tolling) over using property tax.

Teens charged in home invasion Two Surrey teens have been arrested after a violent home invasion in Willoughby on June 20. Three men forced their way into the residence wielding a hand gun, said Langley RCMP Sgt. Ravinder Pawar. The home owner was tied up while the intruders gathered electronics and other items. Once the suspects had left, the victim was able to free himself and call police. Investigators were able to track one of the pieces of electronics through global positioning which led police to Richmond. Officers were spotted by the suspects who tried to evade police. However, police located two of them a short time later and they were taken into custody without further inci-
dent. “This incident appears to be an isolated, targeted event and there is no imminent danger to the public in general,” said Pawar. Charged with robbery and possession of stolen property under $5,000 are Surrey residents Albert Dario, 18, and Raymond Brown, 18. Both suspects are still in custody and made their first court appearances on June 22. Dario is also charged with “using a firearm in the commission of an offense.” Brown is charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle for evading police in Richmond. Anyone with more information can call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or Crimestoppers.
Here’s how it works. If you come in and buy less than 10 of any of our selected annuals in 4” pots, our cashier is going to charge you the regular price (1.99 to 2.99). And she is going to smile (and maybe hum) while she does it. That’s because most of our cashiers have a bit of a mean streak. However, if you are clever and buy 10 or more (mix and match all you want) she will charge you $10 for every 10 you buy. That's a buck apiece for the mathematically challenged.) Save $10 to $20 on each group of 10.

hen Sarb Randhawa and his family ﬁrst opened Baron’s Manor Pub, they didn’t do it for the money. There was no market research, no case study done and no guarantee that they would even succeed. They did it in honour of their father. Satnam Randhawa was a very community oriented man, and had a dream of turning the rundown “Spy Castle” building at the corner of 96 Avenue and 192 Street into a thriving pub. He purchased the 100-year-old Port Kells structure and worked with the City of Surrey to give it heritage status and a obtain a business licence. But when Satnam was killed in a car accident while on a charity trip to India in 2008, his plans came to a sudden halt. His family knew that they had to bring life to his dream. “We didn’t really know what to do with this place at the time of his death,” Sarb said. “So we got all of our money together, we cashed in our RRSP’s, we did whatever we could to keep the place. We wanted to open this up for him. He wanted it so badly. He was so excited about it.” Even though it was going to be a huge investment, the Randhawa family knew it was important to stick
to Satnam’s vision and restore the building as accurately as possible to honour him and the building’s story, which has fascinated locals for a century. The old Henry Kells property quickly became known as the “Spy Castle” after it was purchased by Baron Carl von Mackensen in the early 1900’s and a turreted castlelike tower was built on the south side. The house was notorious for its lavish parties and residents grew suspicious that Von Mackensen was a German spy. Allegedly, an underground tunnel was built from the home to the Fraser River and a radio room was located at the top of the tower for Von Mackensen to communicate with German ships off the Vancouver coast. The Canadian government agreed with local suspicions, and Von Mackensen was interned at a camp in Vernon during the First World War and eventually deported back to Germany in 1919. One-hundred years later the grandeur of the “Spy Castle” had become a decaying mess. “This building was going to be torn down,” Sarb explained. “Squatters were in here and the neighbouring businesses didn’t like it because there was so much crime from it.”

to use on a purchase at a later date. Work on restoring the structure began a year after Satnam’s death. Despite needing to replace many of the rotting beams in the neglected home, the Randhawa family managed to retain 75 per cent of the original structure. The stairs are original, as is the ﬂoor underneath and much of the interior work. In November, 2009 the doors to Baron’s Manor Pub ﬁnally opened, and Satnam’s dream was ﬁnally realized. “This is a family business, that’s what we’re all about,” Sarb said. “We didn’t open this for a business. We didn’t say ‘hey lets put all this money in because we are going to be multimillionaires by the end of the year.’ We did this because we wanted this place opened for our dad because he wanted it so much.” Although none of the family members had any previous experience running a pub (Sarb is
a marine engineer for BC Ferries and his brother Rob, who helps run the pub, is a banker), they have managed to create a very popular neighbourhood establishment. A favourite lunch spot for local business people, the second ﬂoor of the pub is also the perfect location for private get-togethers, parties and weddings. With a menu inspired by the German history of the building and American pub food classics, the Baron’s Manor now serves specialty Indian food as well, made fresh by an ethnic indian chef. Delicious food combined with great daily drink specials and a cozy atmosphere has brought new life to the forgotten “Spy Castle.” “We didn’t know much about the business but we learned really quickly,” Sarb said. “We did it for sentimental reasons and we’ve put everything we have into it.”

TO THE 2012/2013 CHAMBER PRESIDENT!
would like to thank the membership for giving me the privilege to serve as President of the Board of Directors. I pledge to you that I will do my upmost to serve the Chamber and our community to the best of my ability, and to continue the good work that has been done by the Boards of Directors for the past 81 years! My first duty as President of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce was to recognize the dedication and commitment of Denni Bonetti during her term as President. Whether it was at the national, provincial, regional or local level - she represented us well and helped raise the profile of our Chamber throughout the network. Denni is an outstanding ‘Ambassador’ for our organization and our community! At the Board table, Denni’s leadership style encouraged member engagement and ensured that everyone’s voice was heard. It is obvious that when she took on the role as president, Denni was prepared to dedicate the time and energy required to do the job well. Her enthusiasm and passion towards our advocacy efforts has certainly raised the volume of the Voice of Business in Langley. I would also like to express our gratitude to Carlo and the boys for supporting Denni in her role and for the amount of time she was away from home and the family. I am looking forward to the year ahead and to working with fellow Board members to provide value and benefits to our
members. Since attending our Regional Advocacy Summit and the BC Chamber AGM, I can now truly appreciate the power of the Chamber network. I am sincerely looking forward to attending the Canadian Chamber AGM in Hamilton in September where Brian, Lynn and I will advance resolutions concerning maintenance and navigation of the Fraser River. I also look forward to continuing our work on the Communications Strategy & Plan that began last term. We will continue to advocate at the local, regional, provincial and national level to affect change in support of our business community and the economy. The Board will participate in a Planning Retreat to consider issues of importance to our members and develop a program of work for our term. We will continue to reach out to all segments of our membership to seek your input and participation to ensure we are addressing your needs. I look forward to working with our MP Mark Warawa, MLA’s Mary Polak and Rich Coleman, Mayor Froese and Mayor Fassbender to find solutions to business concerns, and to continue to promote Langley as a great place to live, work, play and conduct business! In closing, I express our thanks to the previous Board Members and Committee Volunteers for your dedication of time and expertise. I look forward to working with the 2012/2013 Board of Directors, our Membership and our staff to continue to grow the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, and strengthen the Voice of Business. ~ Angie Quaale, 2012-2013 President

DID YOU KNOW...? ...that there are many things businesses can do to proctect themselves over the Christmas Shopping Season. Here are just a few...
Celebrating 90 Years
SHOPLIFTING < Lock empty fitting rooms and limit the amount of merchandise allowed into the rooms at one time. < Keep expensive items under lock and key and keep the key on your person. < Alternate the direction of hanger/hooks on the merchandise near exits to prevent a grab and run. < Make your store and customers easier to watch. < Ensure you can see every corner of your store. < Use corner mirrors to help eliminate blind spots where shoplifters may try and hide. < Avoid cluttering up store windows with posters or displays that could prevent a passerby or police officer from seeing into your business. < Consider video surveillance. < < <
Locally owned & operated ottercoop.com Located at the corner of 248 Street & Fraser Hwy. 604 856-2517
Things to watch for: Persons who watch you more then they watch the merchandise. Persons who may be concealing goods. Diversionary actions by a shoplifter’s accomplice.
Train your staff to: < Be alert. < Greet and give attentive service to all customers. < Verbally acknowledge that a customer is leaving the store. YOUR STAFF < Carefully screen potential employees. < Provide an application form. < Ask for references and permission to contact them. < Ask if you can contact former employers. < State that successful applicant must undergo a criminal record check. DEBIT MACHINE < Keep the machine and pin pad affixed to your counter. < Be cognizant of individuals attempting to compromise the machine in any way. < Do not leave it unattended.
COUNTERFEIT CURRENCY < Look at the Optical Security Device. When tilted, this gold square in the upper left corner of the note should turn green or brown. < Check the planchettes. On a genuine note these randomly placed green dots can be peeled off. < Examine the portrait for detail. A counterfeit bill will typically lack detail, especially around the eyes. Keep a good quality magnifying glass at the cash register to assist you. CREDIT CARD FRAUD < Check expiration date < Check the name on the front of the card matches the name on the signature panel. < Check signatures < Ask for photo idention GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOURS < Know the shop owners around you. < Share information and awareness. < Exchange phone numbers.
If you witness a crime or see something suspicious, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Should you NEED to remain anonymous, please call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

Free outdoor movie night for BBBS Langley returns on July 13 It’s nearly time, once again, to kick back and enjoy a movie under the stars. It’s summer in the Fraser Valley and that means it’s time for the return of a tradition that started five years ago — free outdoor movie nights. It all begins in Langley on July 13 with a screening of popular family-friendly film at Willoughby Park at the Langley Events Centre. And, as past years,while admission to the movie is free, donations will be accepted on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley. “We are very excited to start the Prospera Cinema Under the Stars festival in a great venue in Langley, where the whole family can enjoy a free movie night,” said Jason Bashnick, FreshAirCinema festival organizer. “For the past few years, we
have seen well over 2,000 people per night attending these events — people simply love the experience of watching a movie outside.” FreshAirCinema is family owned and based in B.C. It works alongside Cinema4Change, a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to use the power of film to strengthen communities and improve lives. “We believe our event provides them with a great way to raise awareness and important funds to continue the work they do.” The Prospera Cinema Under the Stars is the first of eight shows scheduled for the summer in communities across the Fraser Valley. In Langley the event will begin pre-movie event activities starting at around 6 p.m. and the film begins at dusk on a four
storey high inflatable screen. Although, by contract it cannot be named, the movie presented will be a recently released animated Dr. Seuss story, featuring an orange creature that speaks on behalf of the Truffula trees. “Building on previous year’s success, we are very happy to have partnered with Prospera to present this series for the fourth year in a row,” said Bashnick. “We see such a social atmosphere before the event where friends and family just relax and enjoy each other’s company. At dusk everyone settles in and has a fantastic experience watching a movie outdoors — you can’t beat that.” For all event details visit www.freshaircinema. ca, www.facebook.com/ OutdoormoviesBC or follow Freshair on Twitter @ OutdoorMoviesBC
It’s time for you

Plastic island, a monument to our collective ingenuity and folly W e lamented the massive plastic “island” in the Pacific at a recent conference in Surrey on faith and the environment. A few days later the city of Toronto banned plastic bags. And yet a prominent Torontonian (the mayor himself) called the decision “the dumbest thing” his government has ever done. One could also say that the floating plastic patch spanning much of the Pacific from Japan to Hawaii is a monument to human stupidity. To trace its origins perhaps we should go back to the 1862 when Alexander Parkes first showed off his new invention (“parkenstine”) at the great international exhibition in London. Of course, we would not call Parkes’ intelligence into question, nor any of the innovative people who have molded plastic into exceedingly useful items for modern society. Yet there is clearly a problem here. The stock material for plastic in general is oil. Ironically, an heir to a family fortune based

Langley’s Andrea Zonneveld (above left) and North Shore’s Steve Schoeller were among the more than 200 athletes from across the province who took part in a Special Olympics track and field qualifier held at McLeod Athletic Park on June 23. The athletes are aiming for the 2013 Special Olympics B.C. Summer Games, which will be held in Langley in July 2013. More than 1,100 Special Olympians along with 300 coaches will be coming for that event and will compete in 11 summer sports.
Racers excited for upcoming BC Superweek special place for two of Canada’s top professional cyclists. “Quite honestly it’s some of the best and most enjoyable racing around — always good courses, good crowds, and the riders are really highly motivated,” said Tuft, an eight-time Canadian Time Trial champion who got his big break riding for the old Symmetrics team based out of his hometown of Langley. Tuft, 35, returns to BC Superweek for the second time since 2008 having just won his latest Canadian time trial championship in Quebec, and coming off an impressive showing at the Giro d’Italia. In addition to Tuft finishing ninth
A pair of pro riders are coming home. Langley’s Svein Tuft and Christian Meier — fresh off their one-two finish at the Canadian time trial championships in Quebec — will be in the field racing at BC Superweek. Superweek runs July 6 through 15 and features the three-race Tour de Delta, the historic Tour de White Rock, as well as the UBC Grand Prix and the Giro di Burnaby and the Gastown Grand Prix. Altogether, $105,000 is up for grabs in prize money among the nine races. The local events that helped both get started on impressive careers in the saddle still hold a
Meier, a former Canadian National Road Race champion, was also part of the win at his first Giro d’Italia, and is excited about being home. “BC Superweek has always has some of the best atmosphere around,” Meier said.“And for me personally Gastown is still one of the most electrifying ambiances of all the races I have ever done. Where else do you get to race with 30,000 to 40,000 people — it’s just spectacular. I’ve talked to a few former teammates, and it’s really caught the attention of a lot of people.They’re trying to make a big push to come for BC Superweek.” With managers from top North

on a final-day time trial that saw former teammate Ryder Hesjedal become Canada’s first Grand Tour winner, he and Meier helped their new Australian-based team, Orica-GreenEDGE, post its first Grand Tour stage win, helping lead sprinter Matt Goss to the finish line to victory on the third day in Italy. “We really look forward to BC Superweek because our cycling roots are here, our best memories have always been this type of racing, and it’s a chance to race in your hometown in front of friends and family,”Tuft said. “We don’t get that opportunity much in Europe, so it’s a real treat to come back and race.”
American teams at BC Superweek, it’s also a great way to get noticed and earn a professional contract, added Meier. “BC Superweek can be a big measuring stick,” he said. “You have a lot of top American teams come and their directors and managers are always watching, so if you are impressing during Superweek against bigger riders, a lot of guys have used that to get contracts with U.S. teams.That’s very important for local riders because you don’t always have the means to go race all the big races across the US. So when all that is coming to you, it’s a huge opportunity.”

The message was simple: be hungry for excellence in athletics and in life. Former NHLer and Stanley Cup winner Ryan Walter delivered the message at the first annual Langley Fundamental Secondary athletic awards banquet. Walter, now the president of the American Hockey Leagueâ€™s Abbotsford Heat, presented each of the winners with a medal as well as an autographed copy of his latest book, Hungry. He also reminded the athletes that their future will be determined by the people they choose to spend their time with and by the books they read. â€œWeâ€™re proud of all our athletes and want them to become complete champions â€” on the court or field â€” and in life,â€? said athletic director James Johnston, echoing Walterâ€™s challenge. The junior volleyball teams were recognized for their accomplishments as the junior boys captured the provincial banner and the junior girls won the district championships and came second at provincials.
Award winners from the evening included: Junior boys Tristan Loewen (basketball most valuable player); Zuri Vankevich (soccer most valuable player and basketball most inspirational player); Brad Thompson (soccer most inspirational player); Michael Hsu (volleyball most valuable player); and Denham Oâ€™Reilly (most inspirational player).

Pitching fuels Blaze sweep A trio of dominating pitching performances led the Langley Blaze to a perfect 3-0 record last week. The Blaze blanked the Coquitlam Reds 4-0 in game one and then won the second end of the twin-bill 7-1 at McLeod Park on June 28. And the day before, they had routed the visiting North Delta Blue Jays 11-1. The victories push the U18 baseball team’s win streak to five games while improving their overall record to 29-6 and a two-game lead atop the B.C. Premier Baseball League standings. Against Coquitlam, Justin Geerts allowed just two hits and one walk in a complete game shutout. He also struck out six. The offence was led by a pair of RBIs from Preston Kokatailo. The second game was a one-hitter from Jon Bauer. He also struck out six, walked three and surrendered one unearned run. The Reds led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning when the Blaze bats exploded. O’Neill belted a two-run home run and then added a run-scoring double in the sixth to finish with three RBIs. Against North Delta, Langley reeled off 11 straight runs after falling behind 1-0. Bobby St. Pierre drove in three runs while Tyler O’Neill’s triple scored two runs. Tanner Shaer had an impressive day at the plate, going 3-for-4 with three runs scored. On the mound, Liam Stroud pitched a complete game with three strikeouts. The Blaze are in Los Angeles until July 8, where they are competing at the Wally Kincaid Memorial Tournament.
