Ocean warming may be factor in sockeye decline Jeff Nagel Black Press

Jeremy ‘Krikit’ Liddle, bassist with Mission-based rock band Faber Drive, rocks out during the opening night of Party in the Park at Central Community Park on Friday. The event kicked off the summertime series, which runs every Friday night until Aug. 24. For more photos of the band go to theprogress.com/entertainment. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Sockeye salmon along the west coast are producing far fewer returning offspring than in the past and the SFU fishery scientists who have documented the trend say it suggests climate change may be a factor. Randall Peterman said the study he coauthored found 24 of 37 sockeye stocks from Washington State to Alaska lost productivity since 1985, with the hardest hit runs no longer even replacing themselves. He said the fact the decline has been widespread across both pristine and heavily disturbed watersheds points to nonlocal “shared mechanisms” as the more probable cause, rather than river-specific logging or pollution. “It’s much more likely that what’s causing these changes is occurring over a large area,” said Peterman, a professor in SFU’s School of Resource and Environmental Management. Warming oceans could be reducing the salmon food supply in the north Pacific, sending more predators towards the sockeye or increasing their vulnerability to pathogens, he said.

Corn shuckers show up to break world record Jennifer Feinberg The Progress More than 600 people showed up to break the Guinness world record for corn shucking Central Community Park on Friday. It was a unique way for Chilliwack radio station 98.3 Star-FM to celebrate its 85th anniversary. “We can’t say it officially yet, but we believe we broke the world record,” said Star FM program manager Theresa Laynes.

Higgs discovery ‘mind-blowing,’ says local scientist University of the Fraser Valley connection to ground-breaking discovery Robert Freeman The Progress Theoretical particle physics isn’t the usual stuff of community newspapers. But because last week’s discovery of the Higgs boson — aka “the god particle” — goes a long way to explaining how everything in the universe came to be, a localized story might not be too far a stretch. The Progress has also learned that a graduate from the University of the Fraser Valley worked on a team looking for the

elusive particle by smashing photons together at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. Jennifer Godfrey could not be reached Monday for an interview, but Tim Cooper, a theoretical nuclear physicist at UFV explained what a Higgs boson is, and what it means to you and me. “To be honest, not that much at the moment,” he said. But to scientists, he said, it is a huge step toward confirming “the standard model” of how the universe formed after the Big Bang. Unfortunately, in mathemati-

cal terms, the standard model worked only if the particles had no mass. “But we know particles do have mass,” Cooper said. So, in the 1960s, a physicist named Peter Higgs postulated a field that interacted with other known fields — the electrical field that generates electrons; the electro-magnetic field that generates photons — which would give those particles the mass we see in the universe around us. Scientists have been looking for the “god particle” this Higgs field would generate ever since.

Cooper said the problem has been the very high energy needed to shatter a photon in a collider to produce the Higgs particle, and the very short lifespan of the particle (if it existed) which would make it that much more difficult to detect. “Now we know exactly where to look ... it’s going to be much easier,” he said, for physicists to duplicate the discovery and confirm the existence of the Higgs boson. After that, who knows what future discoveries may be made? Dr. Carin Bondar, a molecular biologist in Chilliwack who writes an Internet blog on things

scientific, agreed the Higgs discovery “isn’t going to mean much on a day-to-day level.” “But to scientists, it’s so massive, it’s the last piece of the puzzle. If (the Higgs) wasn’t there ... we would need to rewrite everything we know about physics,” she said. However, the discovery may also open doors to things yet unimagined, she agreed, like the discovery of the electron that has led to every electronic device we see in use today. “It’s mind-blowing,” she said, about the possibilities. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

School board adds more public meetings Meetings in September and June Katie Bartel The Progress

Chilliwack downtown a disaster for TV Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Downtown Chilliwack looked like a disaster zone after a volcanic eruption last week. Streets were closed to traffic for the shooting of World on Fire, a television mini series, set in small-town Oregon. “What we’re doing today is a scene where the volcano has erupted and a wall of ash comes flying down the street,” said David Tamkin, assistant location manager. A massive crane and pulleys were used to lift a group of stunt actors right off their feet. It will look impressive on-

screen, thanks to the magic of TV and computers, as if the volcanic force has literally blown them away. They used a huge wind machine to help simulate the “wall of ash” that blew all the debris, bits of newspaper and grey “bio ash,” down the street when the volcano finally erupted. Chilliwack was scouted as an appealing film shoot location, and beat out several other charming and picturesque little Fraser Valley communities like Mission and Agassiz. Luckily the cast and crew brought the sun with them when they arrived. “We were really worried about shooting the big scene because it had been

Comfort Class - Style Selection

so rainy up until then. But as soon as we got to Chilliwack, the sun came out,” said producer Shan Tam. World on Fire is being produced by Reunion Pictures in a two-episode package. Cast and crew were shooting scenes on Nowell and Mill Streets, as well some footage in Central Community Park. Tam said the visuals were exceptional in Chilliwack with mountain scenes everywhere they turned. “I have to say we were happy with how it all went,” said the producer. “We got what we needed and local officials helped out a lot.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Two years after slimming down the number of public board meetings, Chilliwack trustees agreed to add two more meetings to the 2012-13 school year. It was a decision made to provide more community engagement and to ensure all necessary business is being completed before year end. One additional meeting will be added in September and another in June, which are two of the “busier” months said superintendent Michael Audet. With the two added meetings, the only month with a single meeting next year will be November. In comparison to this year, there were five months with single meetings. The only trustee in opposition to the move was Doug McKay, who didn’t believe the current workflow justified additional meetings. However, his colleagues disagreed. Trustee Heather Maahs pointed out there were several meetings this year that ended past 10 p.m. “I am not in favour of staying here until 11 at night, which we have on occasion,” said Maahs. And by having two meetings a month, “it will help us stay connected with the community.” Trustee Barry Neufeld especially agreed with the additional meeting in September to help the new superintendent, Evelyn Novak, who was hired last week, get into the swing of things. Trustee Walt Krahn said it would be easier to cancel a scheduled meeting if the workflow wasn’t there then to add a meeting on short notice. “If our senior administration needs decisions made, I think it’s important we arrive on scene and assist them in that,” said Krahn. For a full list of meeting dates, go to the school district website at www.sd33.bc.ca, under the board of education link.

District hires more youth workers Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack school district will be hiring three new youth care workers over the summer to help build better relationships with its most at-risk students. The youth care workers will be working out of Chilliwack secondary, the Ed Centre, and Fraser Valley Distance Education to work with students during times of transition from one school to another. The school district’s continued struggles with this group of students was the impetus for the move. “Our research shows that transitions are areas where we are losing kids,” said Ed Centre principal Chuck Lawson. “There’s a common thread as far as the importance of focusing some energy

towards that area.” Chilliwack school district consistently trails below average for school completion rates, hovering around a 70 per cent success rate in the last five years – 10 per cent below the provincial average. Failed transitions is one reason why. In the 2010-11 school year, Chilliwack had a 75 per cent success rate of all students transitioning from Grade 10 to 11; of that, 66 per cent of the aboriginal population transitioned, 74 per cent male, and 75 per cent female. Lawson hopes the new hires will be the inter vening step needed to curb that decline. “Hopefully these adults will be able to establish a relationship with these students in

an effort to help them,” he said. The youth care workers will be responsible for settling students into their new schools, working with them, ensuring they are comfortable and have what they need to be successful. They will also work with the students on a plan to reintegrate them back into mainstream schooling – as “alternate ed is not meant to be a life sentence,” said FVDES principal David Manuel, who led the compilation of the district’s data on transitions in the last three years. In addition to suppor ting str uggling students attending the mainstream high schools and those attending the Ed Centre, a youth care worker will also be working with distance

learning students at Fraser Valley Distance Education to ensure those students find success as well. “DL can be really difficult if a student is struggling; they can become disengaged,” said Manuel. Rather than just rely on email or follow-up phone calls, as was the practice in the past, the youth care worker will visit and work with students wherever they are. “Our mandate is we’re the school that comes to you no matter where you are in life,” said Manuel. “This is about becoming better at being that school.”

It’s getting hot out there. Finally, summer seems to have arrived. We wet coasters whine perennially about our typically dreary weather in June – now commonly, perhaps affectionately, known as ‘Jun-uary’ – but this year it turns out the complaining wasn’t without good reason. We were a full degree below average this year, which is significant, even if it doesn’t seem like much of a difference. As flood our concerns diminish, and the wet weather recedes behind us, the sudden turnaround to a hot, dry summer brings a new set of challenges – more important than listening to moaning about the heat, instead of the cold and damp. In the forests and interface zones (where forest meets urban), the lengthened growing season has translated to plenty of undergrowth, which will become potential fire fuel as it dries out. More so than ever, fire officials are urging people to be wary of the risks for brush fires and wildfires. The risks could be compounded, fire prevention officials and firefighters worry, by a sense of complacency that might have grown out of the recent lengthy spate of grey. That’s concerning because it only takes a few hot days strung together to eliminate any residual moisture left in wooded areas from an extended damp stretch. So as we move from damp to dry, please remember to minimize fire risks.

Discovery opens new window on the universe Particle physicists are usually a pretty conser vative, furrowbrowed bunch but last week they were doing back flips over an announcement that scientists at the Swiss-based European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) believe they have finally discovered the long sought-after ‘God’ particle. For over 40 years it has been thought that this elusive particle gives all matter size and shape. Without upstaging that other Guy in the universe, this subatomic particle is thought to give birth to everything. The scientific name for it is the Higgs Boson and it is a game changer in the Standard Model of physics that defines the interaction of all elementary particles like electrons, protons and muons. Until now, the Higgs Boson has been the only elusive, undetected particle but which

has stubbornly been suspected to exist. Physicists argued for decades that there had to be some kind of ‘glue’ that gave mass the basic building blocks of matter. Mass, to put it simply, is a measure of how much stuff something has. It’s what defines our physical universe and gives shape Margaret to stars, planets, EVANS trees, mountains, people, or your chocolate lab on the couch. So here’s the scoop. In 1964, British physicist Peter Higgs had this notion that there was a subatomic particle that gave all matter mass, or substance, in terms of physical dimensions. The concept was that, fractions of a second after the Big Bang that

created the universe 13.7 billion years ago, there was a gigantic explosion of massless particles and radiation energy. Some of this radiation energy congealed into a ‘field’. This field, Higgs predicted, would have a signature boson particle, one of two fundamental subatomic particles. It was tagged the Higgs Boson and it defines the field. Now imagine this field, dubbed Higgs’ Field, as a sort of cosmic landscape of maple syrup spread throughout the universe. As the universe began to cool, those free floating massless particles zipping around at the speed of light also cooled and picked up mass from the ‘stickiness’ of the Higgs’ Field. The field is also likened to a snow field when the snow sticks to your boots, giving your boots more mass. Those skiing or snowboarding on the

snow pick up less mass. As the particles accumulated mass, they slowed down then bunched up to form atoms, the building blocks of life. Finding this new subatomic particle is pretty heady stuff for folks enclaved in a world of theory. Champagne corks probably don’t pop too often in CERN where painstaking experiments in the dimensions of the supertiny would defy all logic to most folks. The experiment itself is pretty dramatic. Smash beams of protons together at almost the speed of light and examine the fallout. But to find the smallest most elusive particle in the universe they needed the biggest collider in the world to do it. CERN’s Large Hadron Collider took ten years to build and it lies in a tunnel 27

kilometres in circumference 175 metres beneath the Franco-Swiss border. Ten thousand scientists, hundreds of universities and labs and 100 countries came together on this project. Two beams of subatomic particles travel in opposite directions around the accelerator, building energy with every lap. They are finally put on a head-on collision course at very high energy. Teams of scientists then examine the soup of particles that are only created at high energy from the collision. They don’t actually see the Higgs Boson but track its fleeting tell-tale trail in the debris field using specialized detectors. It’s still all theoretical but this is the closest they’ve come yet to ‘seeing’ this elusive God particle. And that makes it a thumbs up moment for all furrow-browed physicists.

Bus service changes blasted Now that we have had an opportunity to actually experience the newest bus transit schedule, we can analyze its shortcomings in line with reader Marie Williams’ comments (Progress, June 28). First, the actual transition was badly mishandled, without any redirection posted on the previous superannuated bus stops, leaving riders stranded. Location of the new stops is inconsistent, forming huge gaps and forcing longer walks for seniors, whereas other stops are invisible due to parked cars, overgrowth, etc. Stops are either too far apart, or unnecessarily close (Knight) or even nonexistent (Yale at Broadway). Stops along Broadway on the east side which lack proper sidewalks forces passengers to wait in mud, or else stand out in the street, providing dangerous target practice in this town. The printed schedule itself is the usual infamous Byzantine production, misrepresenting the new No. 2 Evans route as a through line, although a closer inspection reveals that the connecting bus for Eagle Landing has already left by the time our bus has arrived at the exchange, necessitating another hour wait. Why not be truthful and distinguish them with different route numbers? People boarding the wrong No. 2 bus may find themselves heading back home from whence they came. This blunder only perpetuates the aggravating problem of missed connections that has plagued the system, both at the malls and at the exchange, which the city has repeatedly failed to address. Why does the No. 1 bus not stop at ‘A’, the downtown exchange, as the schedule misrepresents? Instead,

transfers have to walk all the way from or to Southgate Mall, or to Kipp, hardly an ‘improvement’ over the old system. Moreover, city councillors brag about implementing 20-minute service along the downtown-to-mall corridor, conveniently suppressing the fact that a decade ago there was in fact 20 minute service in the mornings at least with the old No, 5, 6 and 7, something for which this council cannot take credit. Again, there has always been night runs until 9 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays despite its misleading claims that this is something new that has been initiated. More egregious though is the denial of services to outlying boroughs such as East Chilliwack beyond Broadway, East Sardis along Higginson and the university at Tyson (a mile west of the Vedder bus stop). The line along the old McNaught No. 2 was well supported, both by seniors and students, only to be thoughtlessly discarded as redundant, all under the misleading rubric of “simplifying” and “streamlining”: euphemistic doublespeak for “slash and burn.” City council has played down the loss of service to some of its citizens, so that it can boast of the Big City feel of frequent service, deliberately ignoring the fact that Vancouver has taken a century to reach its level. Council’s self-congratulation is premature, to say the least. Only councillor Lum has the decency to admit that the newest system is “not perfect” and “will inconvenience some” without specifying who this “some” are. In the real world, not some faceless and thankfully anonymous abstraction, the “some” are a senior who has to push his walker over

a curbless street, taking over half an hour to reach the nearest bus stop, and that is in the heat of July. What do you think it will be like when he has to plow through the December snows? Or an elderly pensioner who has just recovered from a double knee transplant? Or a half-blind bearer with multiple sclerosis? The excuse that there is an alternative for these people does not hold water, full of holes because Handi-Dart is becoming increasingly difficult to access in either a convenient or manageable fashion, and the other council diversion that seniors can rely on the Taxi Fare Saver program to bridge the gap in bus services is patently fails, since there are signs that the provinces will pull the plug in the near future. Besides, which senior surviving on just the OAS pension could afford even half a fare, let alone pay for the rent and bread? Such council callousness smacks of “let them eat cake” – an attitude that scarcely commended itself to its original author over 200 years ago. Maybe it’s time this council actually listened to its citizens, instead of the sham one-nighters at Evergreen Hall, where bus patron’s questions were not allowed to be brought from the floor for public discussion and open debate (this sole meeting was purposely not well-advertised, so as to prevent as many of the most afflicted parties as possible from attending, a covert ploy wellknown to politicians seeking to constructively disenfranchise any opposition). Pretending that this ‘appearance’, this simulacrum, of real public consultation is all that is sufficient to give a false colouring to what should be the fairness of due process.

The Lions Den Presented by Mt. Cheam Lions Club July 1st - Another birthday for Canada and the start of a new year for the Mount Cheam Lions and Lions clubs International. It is time to reÀect on the success of the 2011-2012 ¿scal year, and once again we are proud of what we have accomplished. We have helped so many people in various ways and look for more ways to serve as we enter the 2012-2013 year. We started it off with our food concession at the Canada Day celebrations behind the Leisure Center. If you missed us, you missed out on a great feed of burgers, smokies, and hot dogs. So watch for us at our next event! The seniors programs are put on hold for the summer and we are using the down time to do some much needed upgrading to the hall. The cost is kept down because many of our lions have knowledge and skills that enable us to do most of the repairs ourselves. The end result is when the work is done we will have an even better facility for our use such as for the seniors programs. As much as we are able to help others it is comforting to know that other people and companies are able to help us as well... without their help we could not accomplish all the services that we do...without their help we would not be celebrating our clubs 35th birthday this September. That is why we put on a special appreciation night each June (as we did on June 26th) to show our appreciation for the support we receive from the community. If you’ve ever thought about joining the biggest service organization in the world so you can serve others, while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow lions, contact me or any Mt.

SOCKEYE from Front The culprit could also be affecting sockeye in freshwater, Peterman added. A pathogen – either naturally occurring or spread by fish farms – could be amplified by climate changes and infecting sockeye in rivers that later die at sea. Preliminary findings were presented in 2011 to the Cohen Inquiry, which reports in the fall with recommendations on halting the decline in Fraser River sockeye. But Peterman said the newest analysis shows the pattern of declining productivity has spread northward to more watersheds over time. “That trend of spreading northward is indicative of possibly climate-driven

processes that become more extreme in the south first and work their way north,” he said. “The evidence is much stronger than it was.” The theory of a fish food shortage on the high seas is backed in part because sockeye have tended to return significantly underweight in recent years. The food supply is expected to decline as the ocean warms. But Peterman noted increased competition for the same food supply is another possibility. The number of pink salmon feeding in the same area of the north Pacific has more than doubled, largely the result of “ranching” of pinks by Russians and Alaskans. “Because they feed on similar food to sockeye salmon there may be increased competition,” Peterman said.

faith, among others in promoting well-being in our citizens. During the past few years, one of the sub-committees has facilitated a Youth Consultation to run concurrently with the ABC Conference. This is an opportunity for teens to talk about challenges they are experiencing as well to make suggestions for how the community can support youth. The theme this year was Ignite, Inspire, Involve. Kafui Marie Sawyer, Clinician AMOS with Child and Youth Mental Health, and Steve Esau, Drug and Alcohol counselor with Chilliwack Addictions and Prevention Services spearheaded this year’s Youth Consultation. In the months leading up to the Action Builds Community Conference, Kafui and Steve met with over 200 Chilliwack youth including LGBTQ, church, and suicide prevention groups to present on mental illness, addictions, and family violence. At the end of the presentations students were surveyed anonymously about their personal experiences with the questions “How has mental illness, addictions, and family violence affected you and your family?” and “What do you think its needed to solve the problems of mental illness, addictions, and family violence in our community”. Of the young people who were surveyed, approximately 70 per cent reported they and their families are impacted by at least one of these three things. The most prevalent concern reported by the youth was mental health issues, followed by addictions, and lastly family violence. The suggestions the young people made about how to address these problems in our community included

So close for Sinnott at Chilliwack Open Coldstream native Tyler Pitt struggled mightily on the back nine, but did just enough to hold off Nigel Sinnott for the 2012 Canaccord Weath Management Chilliwack Men’s Open title. One of 41 professionals teeing off Saturday and Sunday at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, Pitt went four under par over two rounds to take the tournament by two strokes and claim his first pro victory. Pitt nearly lost it down the stretch, carding bogeys

on the 12th, 16th and 17th holes. Pitt had to take a doublebogey on a disastrous 13th hole. But he slipped a birdie in on the 15th hole and earned par on the 18th to wrap up the win. Sinnott, Bryn Parry and Oliver Tubb tied for second, all at two under par. CG&CC’s own Sinnott struggled early in the second round, recording a double bogey on the sixth hole and bogeys on the eighth

and ninth. But he came alive on the back nine with birdies on the 11th, 15th and 16th holes. The 15th hole was almost an eagle, but Sinnott came inches shy of draining a 12 foot putt. Sinnott, who tends bar at CG&CC, captured a $1,200 paycheque, the biggest of his short pro career. “Nigel was working late into the night Friday, prepping in the restaurant,” said CG&CC general manager Bryan Ewart. “He shoots

lights out golf on Saturday morning, pours drinks behind the bar on Saturday evening and comes so close to winning the tournament on Sunday. Not a bad weekend for the 22 year old kid!” Curtis Baldwin was in it to the end, finishing three off the pace at one under par. Baldwin was efficient down the stretch, getting birdies on the 11th and 18th holes and pars on the rest of the back nine. But a double bogey on the second hole proved costly

and kept him out of the top three. Local pros Jared Rempel, Josh Taylor, Chap McAdie and Brad Clapp had their moments. Rempel was the best of the bunch, finishing in a tie for eighth at two over par. CG&CC’s Clapp finished in a tie for 12th at three over par. Taylor tied for 14th at four over par. McAdie tied for 17th at five over par. Danny Hebert finished

seven over par. Former PGA players Phillip Jonas and Ray Stewart joined the field. Jonas finished sixth at even, and Stewart tied for eighth at two over par. On the amateur side, Colin Gilliam’s four-over-par 146 earned him top spot by four strokes over Mitchell Lock. Matt Gudmundson’s eight-over-par 150 put him in a three way tie for third with Yves Bisson and Ryan Saran.

Back in black Astute coaching by Chilliwack Progress sports editor Eric Welsh and Chilliwack Chiefs play-by-play man Marc Fitzgerald helped Team Black to a 15-12 win over Team White Friday night at the Chilliwack Chiefs Alumni Game. Fitzgerald juggled the forward lines like a pro, getting three goals from Jeff Royston and two apiece from Kit Sitterley, Michael Spring, Kyle MacKinnon and Darnell Dyck. Dyck, a Chilliwack native, had the tying and winning goals in the third period. Doug Ast, Tyler Burton, Trevor Gerling and Don Nicholls added singles. Burton added four assists. Ast and Jeff Tambellini had three helpers each. Welsh handled the D like a tactical genius. The blueline locked it down in the third period as Team Black came

from behind to earn the win. Goaltender Derek Janzen faced 57 shots for Team Black, stopping 44 with a handful of spectacular saves. Josh Lunden provided punch for Team White, netting four goals. Dan Mahe, Garet Hunt, Skyler Smutek, Brandon Thompson, Peter Bogdanich, Adam Powell, Nathan Martz and Riley Emerson all picked up singles. Saturday’s golf tournament at the Cultus Lake Golf Club was won by the team of Royston, Tambellini, Cam Janzen and Rob Bruni. Andrea Laycock took both the ladies’ long drive and KP titles. Tyson Motz took the men’s KP title and Ryan Bakken got the long drive. (note: Really, Welsh and Fitzgerald had absolutely nothing to do with the win).

Tyler Burton (left) had a goal and four assists and Don Nicholls (middle) put one puck in the net as Team Black beat Brandon Thompson’s Team White in the Chilliwack Chiefs Alumni Game Friday night. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Minor hockey diving into development Chilliwack Minor Hockey is looking for four people to fill paid developmental coordinator positions in 2012-13. The coordinators will create and implement training/education programs for CMHA coaches. The four coordinators will focus their efforts on approximately 26 teams in the Hockey Initiation 1-4 and Atom C divisions. The coordinators will work separately with 5-6 teams each, but work together to

make sure there is continuity in what is being taught. Coordinators will be expected to assess coaches twice per season, once at the beginning and once at the end. They will attend at least three practices per team to guide the coaches on how to provide better on-ice instruction. Coordinators will develop two on-ice coaching clinics that will be mandatory for CMHA coaches. They will develop an off-ice clinic that

will be open to all coaches and mandatory for coaches in Initiation and Atom. Finally, the coordinators will be reporting to the CMHA Player and Coach Development Committee on a monthly basis. Each coordinator will be paid $4,000. Interested candidates can forward their hockey resume (no more than one typed page) to CMHA president David Soltys at president@chilliwackminorhockey.com.

The Mavericks finished first in the Jade division semi-final, and second in the final with a time of 2:13:67 — the fastest time posted by a FVDBC team this year. See www.fvdbc.com

Blake Peeling got the start on the mound, allowing three runs on four hits over five innings, while fanning two. Pharand took over for the final two innings, allowing one run and two walks while striking out a pair. Chilliwack’s record is 15-14 with seven regular season games remaining.

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing away of our dear husband, faDENBOK ther, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Johan “Joe” denBok at the age of 79 years old on Thursday, July 5, 2012. Joe was born in Almskerk, the Netherlands on May 10, 1933. He first came to Canada in 1957 and officially immigrated with his wife in 1960. Besides his loving wife of 52 years, Pia Dam; he is survived by his children, Art (Joanne), Trudy Vandebeek, Ken (Joanne), Annette (Art) Van Maren, Marcelle (Henry) Vandeweerd, Monica (Abraham) Vanderwaal, Els (Brian) Bilkes: 45 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. He is also survived by 1 sister, Diitje van Rijswijk-denBok; 2 brothers Piet and Laurens denBok all from the Netherlands. He was predeceased by his parents, Aart and Anna; parents in-law Cornelius and Hendrika Dam; sister Paula Smits; brother Adriaan denBok; infant son and daughter; infant grandchild. Condolences will be held between 7-8:30pm on Monday, July 9, 2012 at the Bethel Netherlands Reformed Church of Chilliwack.

He valued his friendships with all his employees, customers and suppliers. He worked tirelessly for many years in God’s Service as an elder in the church. He loved to visit the people and continued to do so after he stepped down from his office. His desire was to serve God and he loved to sing His praises. His daily burden was for the salvation of his children and grandchildren whom he brought before the throne of grace daily in prayer. His message to family and friends and to all people would be the words found in the Holy Scriptures 2 Peter 1 verses10,11: “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

HARE Frank (Red) Godfrey

May 9,1946 – June 28,2012 Red passed away at the Cascade Hospice in the presence of loving family and friends. HARE He was predeceased by his parents Frank and Freda Hare. He is survived by his son, Dakota Lee Hare, his stepson Dylan (Heather) Cuff, their mother Maggie Cuff, his sisters Dorothy Schroeder and Loreen (Phil) Richmond, his nephew Glen Schroeder and niece Jennifer Harder. Born in Gladstone, Manitoba, he was a long time resident of Chilliwack, Cultus Lake, Yarrow and Ryder Lake. Ever since his youth, Red was at the heart of a vibrant fellowship of musicians, artists, and countless dear friends. Red had a career as a prolific artist and contributed his talent to the community in promoting local events and designing floats for the City in local parades. Red’s unique artwork left an unmistakable imprint throughout the communities he lived, whether it be in graphic designs, paintings, billboards, signs, posters, or many of the other mediums he pursued. He was also a gifted conga drum player and played and toured with bands from the time he was a teenager to the present. In recent years he played with the local band, the Blendurz, and with well known musician Trevor McDonald as well as other musicians. Red was a gentle soul who was loved by all who knew him and called him friend. His warm-hearted nature and wit will leave us all with rich memories and inspiration. He will be missed. His family wishes to thank the doctors and staff of the Abbotsford Cancer Clinic and Hospital, Chilliwack General Hospital and Cascade Hospice for their care and kindness. Also, many thanks to his dear friends Jim Morford, Trevor and Tracey McDonald, Blake Munce and Michael James who were his constant companions during his last days. His son, Dakota was constantly at his side for the last month of his life. A private graveside service to be attended by immediate family will be held. A farewell tea and musical jam celebrat-

ing Red’s life will be held at a time and location to be specified. Donations to the Cascade Hospice in Red’s memory would be appreciated.

On passing the torch of life We’ve heard the one about the Taurus and the Hare We all know how our life at times doesn’t seem fair And yet we all do our best with what we are holding As we strive towards our highest good and unfolding I met Frank in the sixties when I was way too druggy He had long red hair and drove a yellow dune buggy We became fast friends during those forty-four years Sharing laughs, music and occasionally, a few tears Red never judged me or anyone else whom he knew He loved his music, the arts and all of his friends too Together we made many gallons of home made wine It rarely had a chance to age but it always tasted fine In all those years I never heard Frank raise his voice Not in anger or frustration; he just seemed to rejoice And enjoy what our lives were to each other’s being We were who we were, as I look back clearly seeing For anyone who hung with this very friendly bloke Knew after he had listened he was quick with a joke Even as I cried out for him, from behind wet cheeks He dried them off with a one liner about diaper leaks

H

Now this life we shared has become something more Ingrained in who we are, not in who’s keeping score We can only look forward to what we have yet ahead As our pasts flow downstream I’m left crying instead We’ve lost our friend, Frank, to some, he’s Red Hare A man loved by us all and a man who really did care May I speak for us all as I toast to this wonderful soul Frank, we love you man, you helped make life whole. - Blake Munce

SANDERS William

William Sanders passed away peacefully on July 3, 2012 at the Chilliwack General Hospi- SANDERS tal at the age of 90 years. He was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 5th 1922 in the dead of a prairie winter. That cold start to life no doubt was a great start in building his strong will to survive. He was a Veteran of the Second World War and one of the fortunate to find a wife from the Netherlands while in active service. He was an intelligent man who prided himself in keeping up with current affairs whether it was politics, sports or finance he had an opinion on the subjects and would not be ashamed to speak his mind. He enjoyed watching all the sports but he was particularly keen on Football. Had he not injured his back after the war he would have loved to pursue the game but unable to play he did the next best thing and became a keen arm chair quarter back. He had a love for the Okanagan, Penticton in particular where he ended up living for most of his retirement years. He was sadly predeceased by his loving wife Hester (Keeman), Feb 14th 2004. He will be lovingly remembered by his eldest son Ted and grandchildren Natalie, Virginia, Victoria and Veronica, daughter Lorraine (Mick) and granddaughter Michelle (Dean) and great grandson Shayle, son Al (Joyce) and grandchildren, Carey (Mason) and great grandson Ryden, and grandsons Chad & Christopher (Nicole) and son Edward (Shelley) and step granddaughters Anastasia and Angela (Adam) and step great grandson’s Isaac & Carter.

We, Soprema Inc., intend to submit this amendment application to the Director to amend Permit PA-16129, issued December 21st, 1999 and last amended September 21st, 2004 which authorizes the discharge of air emissions from an asphalt roo¿ng manufacturing facility.

2006 Nissan 350Z, black, 45,000 miles, 6 speed, mint condition. $16,000. Dwayne 604-991-1900

The land upon which the facility is situated and the discharge occurs is in the parcel 024-242-403 Lot 1, District lot 77, Group 2, zoned as “Industrial M3”, located at 44955 and 44943 Yale Road West, within the Municipality of Chilliwack (V2R 4H3). The amendment requests that the following conditions be changed from three sources of discharge of air emissions to 5 sources of air emissions resulting from the implementation of a new manufacturing unit of asphaltic panels. The two new sources will be:

830

-

The stack discharging manufacturing process exhaust from the new production line after being processed through an odour reduction system to reduce asphalt odours and other contaminants (particulate matter and volatile organic compounds). The discharge rate will be of 5 000 SCFM (average and maximum). The Àow will be continuous for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. It is expected that after going through the odour treatment stage, the treated air released to the atmosphere will have been ¿ltered from 70% to 80% of its contaminants.

-

The vent discharging exhaust from the limestone conveyor and silo will be ¿ltered through dust collectors. These ¿lters are certi¿ed 99.9% ef¿cient by the manufacturer on all particulate matter of 0.5+m and higher. The four dust collectors (one on the silo, three on the conveyor) will have an average discharge of 500 SCFM and will be operational for 3 minutes every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

MOTORCYCLES

SOPREMA Chilliwack is authorized under Permit PA-16129 to discharge to the air, from the current Stack Discharging Manufacturing Process Exhaust, following these conditions:

The authorized works are ductwork, Venturi water sprays, a Venturi scrubber, dynamic separator, stack and related appurtenances.

Rate of air discharge Discharge period Total Particulate Matter 1

Maximum authorized value under Permit PA-16129 0.5 m3/min 20 hours/week 50 mg/m3

Values for the limestone system of the new manufacturing line after dust ¿ltration ( 99.9% ef¿ciency) 3 14.5 m /min 100 hours/week Negligible 1

Taking into account that the ef¿ciency factor of the new dust collectors located on the new limestone silo and conveyor is of 99.9% (data from the manufacturer).
