Purse snatcher attacks senior Elderly woman robbed after bank withdrawal Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An 85-year-old woman who had just withdrawn money from a bank was robbed of her purse and pushed by the culprit on Sunday afternoon in Abbotsford. Const. Ian MacDonald said the woman entered the TD Canada Trust in the 32800 block of South Fraser Way at about 12:45 p.m. After making a withdrawal, she drove a short distance and parked on Eagle Street. A man rapidly approached her as she was getting out of her car, grabbed her purse, pushed her and ran away. MacDonald said it’s possible that the man had watched the woman at the bank and then followed her. Residents in a nearby apartment complex heard screams for help, attended to the woman and called police. “She didn’t need any medical attention, but she is extremely shaken,” MacDonald said. Patrol officers and a K9 unit searched the area, but a suspect was not located. MacDonald said at least one witness saw a person matching the culprit’s description heading toward the area of Mill Lake and the Bourquin bus exchange. The suspect is described as Caucasian, 18 to 20 years old, clean-shaven and 5’ 8”. He was wearing a black hoodie and possibly a dark baseball cap. Anyone with information is asked to contact Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Dad puts out fire Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford man saved his home from major damage last Wednesday when he used a fire extinguisher to put out a bathroom blaze. It was the early afternoon when Gary Ahuja opened the door to the master bedroom of his home in the 3200 block of Rockhill Place and found smoke filling the room. He immediately traced the source to the en suite, where flames had engulfed the area around the toilet. Several family members were home at the time, including Ahuja’s two young children, his parents, and a visiting uncle and nephew. His wife was at work. He yelled for everyone to leave the home and for his mom to pass him the fire extinguisher from under the kitchen sink. His wife had purchased the item only about six months earlier. Ahuja then extinguished the blaze, and

The Matsqui Transfer Station, owned by Metro Vancouver, processes 51,000 tonnes of garbage a year. The city of Abbotsford is exploring new options to deal with waste.

Trash options explored Alternatives to Metro-owned transfer station sought Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Trash disposal is worth millions, and the city is looking to save dollars as the current contract with Metro is up for bidding two years from now. Staff are looking for alternatives to the Matsqui Transfer Station, a Metro Vancouver-owned facility that processes and ships 51,000 tonnes of garbage a year to the Cache Creek landfill. The current deal with Metro is expected to expire in 2015 and a request for proposals have been issued. City manager Frank Pizzuto said he expects landfill costs will increase significantly in the near future. Metro is planning to increase tipping fees by $10 to $30 per tonne each year until 2015. Abbotsford spent $1.2 million in 2011 on tipping fees. There are two private waste management services in Abbotsford – BFI Canada located at 34321 Industrial Way and First Class Waste Services at 1454 Riverside Road – both in the Huntingdon industrial area. The companies are already taking business away from Metro, and Pizzuto said either could bid. He also noted that Metro may also rebid.

Another option could involve a company purchasing the Matsqui Transfer Station from Metro. The city’s garbage would likely continue to be sent to Cache Creek, or to a landfill site in the U.S., depending on the bidder. Metro’s new waste plan includes using waste-to-energy technology to incinerate garbage. The idea has been c o n t rove rsial, especially in the Fraser V a l l e y where many are concerned how a major new incineraPIZZUTO tion plant would impact the local airshed. “Certainly our council has openly said that they are opposed to the waste-to-energy and so, if they moved in that direction, certainly Abbotsford would probably consider not being part of that environment,” said Pizzuto. However, he clarified the decision to request proposals is primarily a financial one. Tracy Kyle, the city’s director of water and solid waste, said the tipping fee last year was $92 per tonne, and went up to $108.45 per

tonne this year. The increased fees this year could result in costs going up another $1 million, but some of that will be offset by a reduction in the amount of curbside waste collected, due to increased recycling and composting. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said the city isn’t saying it plans to leave Metro’s waste system, rather just keeping options open. “This is planning ahead before it’s a panic. We have to have options for what we can do.” While a new local transfer station is a possibility, Banman said what is not on the table is creating a landfill site in Abbotsford. “That is not going to happen. There is nowhere in Abbotsford to put it.” Abbotsford’s decision to look at other options is the latest in a series of blows to Metro’s waste plan. Commercial waste haulers are increasingly trucking the garbage they collect to private landfills outside Metro Vancouver to avoid high tipping fees and disposal bans that are enforced by the regional district. The developing trend has alarmed Metro Vancouver staff and politicians because every load of garbage that leaves the region means less money is collected in

tipping fees to support the fixed costs of the waste management and recycling system, forcing those fees to climb higher for everyone else. So far, it’s estimated 50,000 tonnes of waste per year – five per cent of the waste stream – has shifted to private out-of-region facilities, resulting in a loss of $5 million per year in tipping fee revenue for Metro. It’s mainly coming from businesses, industry and multi-family residential buildings served by private haulers. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs Metro’s Zero Waste Committee, said the fear is the outward migration of garbage will accelerate. “The reduction could grow exponentially and then you’ve got a real issue,” he said. “The trend could be a very difficult one if we don’t address the situation. If you’re taking waste out of the waste stream that means the cost for those who remain is going to increase.” Brodie said a big chunk of the 50,000 tonnes of outbound garbage is believed to go to one of Abbotsford’s private transfer stations, where it’s shipped by rail to a U.S. landfill run by Rabanco near the Washington-Oregon border.

A 32-year-old Chilliwack woman who was airlifted to hospital following a multi-car crash Friday morning on Highway 1 in Abbotsford was released from hospital the following day. A friend of the woman said she suffered three large cuts to her head, believed to have been caused by the roof of the vehicle caving in, and required several stitches and staples. She had no broken bones or spinal damage. The incident happened at about 10:45 a.m. in the eastbound lanes, just west of the Highway 11 off-ramp. Two separate accidents occurred. The first involved three or four cars that rear-ended each other in a chain-collision crash, as a result of slippery roads, driver inattention and speed, according to RCMP. Traffic slowed, and it is believed that a van then rear-ended the Hyundai Accent driven by the woman. This caused the vehicle to spin and collide with a dump truck in the adjacent lane. Other cars were also involved – up to 10 in total. The Hyundai flipped on its side and part of it was pinned beneath the dump truck, requiring the driver to be extricated from the vehicle. She was conscious

Disgraceful pensions Who says it doesn’t pay to be a politician? With the B.C. Liberals in a freefall and the provincial election 10 months away, a number of MLAs have decided to leave politics. Much is made by some about the sacrifices made by politicians, of the time spent away from family, of the decision to take a break from their career passion – all to serve the public good. While it is always admirable to see men and women take an active part in the democratic process, make no mistake – it is a decision that often pays dividends far beyond anything a working stiff will ever realize. Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer is one of the latest B.C. Liberals to decide against seeking re-election next year. According to Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF) figures, Hayer’s 12 years in office will give him an annual pension that will start at $47,600 when he turns 65 and climb to $62,900 when he turns 80. The CTF estimates Kamloops-South

Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger will enjoy an annual pension of $87,700 when he turns 65, rising to $115,700 when he turns 80. The MLA pension plan is indeed gold-plated as taxpayers chip in $4 for every dollar the MLA contributes. The B.C. Liberals, under thenleader Gordon Campbell, campaigned in the 1996 election against exorbitant pension plans. The NDP won and implemented a reasonable plan, in which taxpayers match every dollar the MLA contributed. In 2007, however, Campbell reversed his position and brought back a ridiculously rich pension, even allowing MLAs to buy back years lost. Political pension plans are a disgrace and do nothing to counter the perception (which is reality) that entering the political arena is the path to setting yourself up for life, with your retirement funded well by taxpayers who can barely get by. – Black Press

For me, the road less travelled is best Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand I should get out more often . . . there’s a whole world out there that has been passing me by. Just last week I took, for the first time, the “new” Sea to Sky Highway . . . that upgraded for the Winter Olympics route from Horseshoe Bay to Whistler. Time, however, restricted my adventure to just the “Sea” part, for my destination was Squamish which, while basking in lots of sky, is barely 20 feet or so above high tide. The purpose of my visit was to assist the Squamish Public Library’s newspaper archives, and sign over the use of photographs and other historical bits that came from the newspaper I published some 20 years ago. That newspaper, and a couple of others in Whistler, were along with me “retired” from active duty in 1993 and the accumulated boxes of donated photographs, negatives and other newspaper

detritus languished until recently in a storeroom. However, the library could not technically use it until they acquired “copyright”. Thus, apparently, a search began for the last known purveyor of said newspapers … yours truly. A couple of weeks ago an email popped into my inbox asking if I was the same Mark Rushton who was publisher of the Squamish Times when it succumbed to the throes of fiscal death. I was, I replied, and agreed not only to sign over use of the archives but would do it in person. So last Wednesday found me rolling up the coast expecting, from all that I had heard over the past couple of years about this spectacular “millionaires’ highway,” to be blown away by the grandeur, ease of travel and cost to create same. While disappointment isn’t the word I’d use to describe it after travelling the old route so many times, I was surprised at how little things had actually changed. There were a few sections that had been widened, but still lots remain just two lanes, and in those sections I’d guess the route is still as dangerous to speeders as it has been for decades. Further north to Whistler, may reveal greater improvements, but that’s for another trip.

I managed to drive from Abbotsford to Squamish in about an hour and half, very close to what it took me 20 years ago. I knew coming home however, would be different story, and it was. I left Squamish with hopes of hitting Highway 1 well before the eastbound rush began. Just my luck when I reached Horseshoe Bay, a ferry was disgorging

I knew coming home, however, would be a different story, and it was. vehicles. Then a couple of miles later, tree trimmers had one of the lanes blocked. Following that it was smooth sailing until the south end of the Second Narrows Bridge, where a ship was obviously, from all the container trucks entering the freeway, unloading its cargo. Traffic was again at a crawl. Then I watched in disgust as car after single-occupant car passed me in the

HOV lanes. My lanes was stop and go, bumper to bumper, at a snail’s pace, while the flagrant abusers were sailing by. I’d guess at least 10 per cent of HOV users, perhaps closer to 15, were cheating. As each one zipped by my sorelytempted-to-disregard ‘lawabidedness’, I yelled out the open window a special epitaph of contempt. I was almost hoarse, and close to running out of “bad words” from my rather extensive repertoire of invectives, when lo and behold, just where the Skytrain guideway arches over the freeway, there were four cop cars in the median … and a whole whack of flagrant HOV abusers pulled over for pricey tickets. That made my day, and with the few ‘words’ left over I muttered to myself about the idiots who slow to a crawl to ‘looky-loo’ whenever a cop has someone pulled over because, as soon as I passed the pullout of perpetrators, all traffic flowed at (or above) posted speeds all the way home. When I do get out again, it will be eastbound. In the time it took me from Horseshoe Bay to Abbotsford I could have driven all the way to Merritt, and be relaxing on a lake in my “new” boat! markrushton@abbynews.com

letters Calling for coalition of rural communities Several years ago, the communities of Bradner and Mt. Lehman presented shared traffic concerns to council. They did so under the Northwest Abbotsford Coalition, ( NAC). The NAC area covered from the Fraser River to Downes Road, and from Highway 11 to the Abbotsford-Langley

border. One voice for these communities was an effective way to communicate. With the recent application to extract cheap agricultural land from the ALR and rezone it to a much greater value per acre, our lifestyle will be irrevocably altered, and the NAC area will be inundated

Court too easy on Brent Parent Re: Appeal in road-rage trial, Monique Tamminga, July 10, edition. In 2008 Brent Parent ran the vehicle that 21 year-old Silas O’Brien was in off the road, then did a u-turn and ran Silas over with his vehicle. The courts sentenced Parent to 5.5 years. Parent should have been convicted of at least second degree homicide for his actions, but once again, the courts show leniency to those with lengthy criminal convictions. Parent has 64 driving convictions along with five driving suspensions. Why was he even driving in the first place? My question is this: when will the government grow some backbone and remove judges who are soft hearted towards those that are a danger to society? Lee Hanlon

letters Hold the line on city salaries Re: Comment by Coun. Henry Braun – city payroll increases “unsustainable.” Although a “no-brainer” conclusion by Coun. Braun, no doubt supported by the vast majority of city taxpayers as we struggle prudently to manage expenses within available incomes, I have little doubt the general trend in council is to build generous annual increases into payroll forecasts – and I wonder why? Why is it apparently impossible to limit pay increases to annual inflation? Why is it thought necessary to award city employees salaries and benefits far in excess of those awarded the average non-government worker? “Well,” most councillors may reply, “that’s just the way it’s always been around here, so if it’s not broken, why fix it?” Or, as suggested by Coun. Braun, perhaps one needs to be a forensic accountant to understand the $3.5-million payroll increase this past year. Perhaps best for councillors to bury their collective heads in the sand, rather than risk exposing fiscal imagination, or disinterest. Avoiding or acquiescing to city employee demands by showering excessive increases on them is just too simplistic a fix, and of course “unsustainable.” How about creating a cost-limiting wages and benefits paradigm that will cause other cities to view with admiration Abbotsford council’s renewed commitment toward practical, sustainable budgeting?

Couple of basic suggestions you may wish to consider: Stop believing it is necessary to pay top dollar to attract the best management. The fallacy of this policy has on many occasions been confirmed in the international media when supposed “best person for the job” executives make financially disastrous decisions – followed by an incomprehensible commitment to send the executive packing with an outrageously excessive termination package, and lame “we had no choice” comment from the employer. Was the employer representative asleep when the hiring package was negotiated? I have no doubt the majority of city employees are hard-working, seriously committed to making Abbotsford a wonderful environment in which to live. However, if their argument is that Langley, or perhaps Surrey, pay their employees higher wages and benefits for similar work, wish them well as they pack up and depart for supposed greener pastures. Everyone can be replaced. With few exceptions, I bet each vacant position could quickly be filled by Abbotsford residents, each one enthusiastic to win a city job with current attractive remuneration package – even if forewarned not to expect further increases in excess of inflation for the next five years. To demonstrate my point, you can place my application on top of the pile. I’ll be happy start on Monday, with work boots or briefcase. T. Jones

City falls behind in caring The fact that Abbotsford is blazing new standards in not treating addiction, overdoses, and disease is not all that amazing. These problems, which cannot be railroaded out of town to the city limits or driven underground where they cannot be treated, are a rather sad statement on this city’s values. This is a social health issue, but given the politics of Abbotsford, it has become more than that. This is not a time to turn our backs on the less fortunate, or bury our heads in the sand, but to embrace those with problems and

provide assistance, caring, and hope to them. As we have moved proudly from a town to a modern city, we have to act like one. This means solving our problems at home and not sweeping them under the carpet. Affirmative action at the leadership level of our community is what is needed. An attitude of see nothing, hear nothing, do nothing, leads nowhere. It is simply a revolving door, avoiding the same problem that compounds itself over and over again. Myron Neville

Public can view Operation X The Abbotsford Police Department’s documentary about ecstasy use is now being released to the public. Operation X, which was shown to thousands of Abbotsford middle and secondary students this spring, can be viewed online on YouTube (search “Operation X The Straight Goods on E”) or by calling the community police office at 604-864-4814 to request a DVD copy. The film shares the impact that the ecstasy deaths of Abbotsford’s Cheryl McCormack, 17, and Tyler Miller, 20, have had on their family and friends. Operation X presentations are scheduled to resume in September. To book a presentation, contact Const. John Davidson at 604-614-2390 or Const. Carrie Derocher at 604-614-0073.

Careen acquitted of theft charges A former teacher who was convicted of sending sexual text messages to a student has been acquitted of all charges in a separate case. Martin Careen, 53, was found not guilty on July 16 in Abbotsford provincial court of theft, obstructing a peace officer and assault with a weapon. Careen was accused on April 26, 2010 of shoplifting toiletry items from the Real Canadian Superstore on Gladwin Road, pushing one of the loss prevention officers (LPO) who had approached him, and fleeing in his mini van.

Martin Careen While driving away, it was alleged that the passenger side mirror of his vehicle hit one

of the LPO’s, hurting his arm. Careen was later arrested at his home and charged. In May of this year, Careen was sentenced to 60 days in prison for his conviction on a charge of invitation to sexual touching. The charge stemmed from a January 2009 text conversation he had with a female student, then 17, that turned sexual in nature. Careen was a teacher at St. John Brebeuf Regional Secondary – a private Catholic school – at the time. He is no longer permitted to teach and is now employed as an office worker at a construction company.

Street on Wednesday at about 12:30 p.m. moved into the lane to make a left turn on South Fraser Way, but the vehicle didn’t move when the light turned green. Instead, the 48-year-old man lay back to have a nap, said Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald. He said the most concerning thing to witnesses was that the man had two young boys – ages seven and eight – in the back seat. One of the boys was later discovered to be his son, and the other was a neighbour’s. The bystanders removed the boys from the car while they waited for police to arrive, and then saw the driver move into the back seat as if to get more comfortable, MacDonald said. Police who arrived on the scene suspected the man was impaired and conducted a roadside screening test. The man’s vehicle was impounded for 90 days and he will be required to have a breathalyzer immobilizer device in his vehicle when it is back in his possession.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW before you call any electrician To ensure you are contacting the right electrician, consider this...

1 2

Focused or Filler: Most electricians prefer new construction or big projects and consider home renovations and repairs an interruption to their day. At Blue Crest Electric we focus on the homeowner. We love home renovations and take great pride in our installations. Our broad scope of knowledge and experience means that troubleshooting and problem solving are our specialty.

3

Invoice Overload: This is what happens when you get a ‘ball-park estimate’ or are charged for ‘time & material’ and the electrician gets paid more the longer he takes to complete the job. At Blue Crest Electric we take exception to this practice. We show you the guaranteed exact amount you’ll pay before the project begins. In most cases we will even provide several cost options so you can choose what is right for your budget.

4 5

Don’t have the parts: Other electricians do not stock their trucks like we do. This usually results in 2, 3 or even 4 trips before your problem is fixed and is all added to the time charged on your invoice. Blue Crest Electric trucks are stocked with more parts so we can fix your problem the first time.

Appointments:

Most electricians don’t make actual appointments. Instead, they say something like, “I’ll be there Tuesday” or “some time next week”. Meanwhile you waste a lot of time waiting, wondering if you should risk going out in case he should show up. When you call Blue Crest Electric for an appointment, we arrange for our actual arrival time so you can go about your day with the least amount of inconvenience, and we keep our appointments. Guaranteed.

Guarantees: Ask other electricians if they guarantee their work, and for how long, and you’re likely to get a blank stare or you should be informed of their ‘concrete guarantee’ which lasts as long as they are standing on your concrete driveway. At Blue Crest Electric, your satisfaction is 111% guaranteed. If you’re unhappy with our work for any reason, we’ll redo it. Free. We want you to be more than just 100% satisfied. We want you to tell your friends good things about us.

the a ALL WORK PERFORMED TO YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION BY RELIABLE, TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED ELECTRICAL PROFESSIONALS.

Congratulations Peardonville House Peardonville House | 25 year anniversary Peardonville House Treatment Centre began in 1987 as a supportive recovery house for Abbotsford women facing addiction, and has since served more than 3,000 clients through intensive treatment programs. The centre celebrated 25 years in operation with an open house barbecue at 825 Peardonville Road on Saturday, July 21. The event was an opportunity for members of the community to meet the many people responsible for the success of Peardonville House, including former residents, staff, board members and donors. Peardonville House has undergone several changes over the years, including upgrades and added programs, and currently has a total of 40 beds for women with addiction issues. A major success for the facility is the “Mom and Kids” program, which allows under-age school children to live with their mothers during the recovery process, and remains the only one of its kind in the province. Milt Walker has been with the organization since it began 25 years ago, and currently serves as executive director of the Kinghaven Society, the men’s recovery centre that operates Peardonville House.

25

As the only all-women resource centre in the Fraser Valley that also offers the benefit of fully licensed child care, Walker believes it is an “essential service” for Abbotsford. “Our goal is to assist women who often arrive defeated and destroyed and help them regain their self-esteem and self-worth and leave us with a renewed sense of self and pride in their accomplishments,” explained Walker. “We have had a number of women complete or begin a university education and enter the workforce as productive citizens.”

Peardonville House offers a mix of programs to help women reach their goals and maintain sobriety, including education classes on certain aspects of addiction, recovery and aftercare, parenting classes for those who serve with children in residence, art therapy, yoga, and Bible study. m, Other services include a three-month stabilization and transitional living program, a 70-day intensive treatment program and detoxification. The women also attend tend ed an a “variety of 12-step meetings in-house and in the community, and are assigned rogram,” individual counsellor who they will see on a one-to-one basis throughout the program,” said Walker. “Some may not make it the first time, but the seed of recovery has as been planted and will take root with enough encouragement and support.” Although a career at Peardonville House can be both “challenging and rewarding,” warding,” Walker noted that the staff are always “particularly pleased when families are reunited he last 25 with a loved one who has regained a clean and sober lifestyle.” He attributed the years of success to the “commitment of the residents to begin a new lifestyle,” and also to those dedicated past and present staff members who have “provided their expertise in the recovery journey.” Walker believes that there are “no failures when you leave eave the door open to those who have the courage to ask for help,” which is why the hope for the future of Peardonville House is simply to continue to “serve the needs of those who come through that door.”

Dominant efforts on the wrestling mat and the rugby pitch highlighted a series of terrific local results at the BC Summer Games. All told, Abbotsford athletes brought home 24 medals from the Games, which were centered in Surrey. • Four local wrestlers won gold in their respective weight classes – Harman Basran (54 kg), Matt Dignan (57 kg), Justin Gill (70 kg) and Devin Purewal (84 kg). Additionally, Dave Sharma won silver at 51 kg. • The Fraser Valley regional rugby teams were absurdly dominant, and Abby athletes figured in heavily. The girls final was an all-Fraser Valley affair, with the region’s first team knocking off the second team 29-5. The gold medal-winning side featured Lauren Kerr, Sophia DeGianni, Kay Olsen, Shelby Pihl and Gurpreet Dhaliwal, while silver medalists included Autumn Garrett, Tiffany Picketts and Rachelle Wenting. • The boys rugby tournament also saw two Valley teams climb

Matt Kaminski is trading his Columbia Bible College Bearcats jersey for a shirt and tie. The 26-year-old, who was playing volleyball for the Bearcats as

recently as March, was named the Abbotsford school’s interim athletic director earlier this week. He replaces Rocky Olfert, who is moving across town to take the reins of the University of the Fraser Valley athletic

department. Kaminski graduated from CBC in 2011 with a bachelor of arts in intercultural studies, and began the 2011-12 school year as an assistant AD under Olfert. He re-enrolled in the second semester and

suited up again with the Bearcats volleyball men, helping them to a fourth-place finish at the CCAA nationals, which they also hosted. CBC has four sports programs in the PacWest college league – men’s and women’s

basketball and volleyball. “It’s a huge opportunity for someone my age to be moving into a role like this,â€? Kaminski acknowledged. “But I also feel I’ve been around CBC as a player, and last year as assistant athletic director, so I’ve learned quite a bit about how things work around here. I’m more excited than anything.â€? Kaminski said the interim l a b e l stems from the fact his current resumĂŠ lacks elem e n t s KAMINSKI outlined in the job description, namely a master’s degree and three to five years experience in a similar role. But Olfert’s hiring by UFV in mid-June left little time for a comprehensive search for a replacement. Kaminski hopes to stay at CBC long-term – he’ll be up for review in the spring when his one-year contract expires, and he’s open to pursuing his master’s eventually. He intends to take a “holisticâ€? approach to developing athletes, emphasizing spiritual and academic growth along with athletic improvement. “Wins and losses and doing well athletically are important to us, but there’s definitely more to CBC athletics,â€? he said.

The other half of Olfert’s portfolio at CBC, the men’s volleyball head coaching job, will be taken on by Phil Wiens. Wiens played five seasons with the Bearcats, and served as assistant coach the past two years. He helped guide the team to a CCAA gold medal in 2010-11, along with the fourthplace finish in 2011-12. The CBC volleyball men also won PacWest silver and bronze medals during that stretch. “I am very excited for the opportunity to build on the strong legacy that the previous coaches have developed,� Wiens said in a press release. “I am also looking forward to joining the dedicated staff that run the CBC athletics department, and actively serving in mentoring studentathletes.�

Sports in Brief

Hadwin primed for Canadian Open return Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Last Friday, Adam Hadwin was back home in Abbotsford to play in the RBC Dominion Securities Pro-Am, a one-day Vancouver Golf Tour event at Ledgeview Golf and Country Club. This week, the 24-year-old pro will participate in another RBC-sponsored tournament that he’s had circled on his calender for quite some time – the Canadian Open. The PGA Tour stop, which opens Thursday at Hamilton Golf and Country Club, boasts a somewhat higher profile than the local tourney, along with a bigger purse ($5.2 million compared to $10,000). It’s also the event that thrust Hadwin into the national media spotlight one year ago. At the 2011 RBC Canadian Open at Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, Hadwin thrilled Canadian golf fans by contending for the title on the final day, before finishing in a tie for fourth. He’s hoping to channel some of those good vibes this week. “I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “It’s an event that gets the juices flowing no matter how poorly or how well you’re playing up to that point. You just get re-energized.” Hadwin tied for fifth at Ledgeview last Friday, carding a four-under 66 to earn $716.67. Matt Daniel took home the $2,000 first prize after firing a scorching 62, three strokes better than runners-up Ryan Williams, Bryn Parry and Shane Prante. Hadwin, a regular on the Web.com Tour this season, said the Ledgeview event was a last-minute addition to his schedule. “If it was anywhere

SMITH SECOND IN TORONTO

else, I probably wouldn’t have gone and played, but it’s just a quick five-minute drive up the hill from my house,” said Hadwin, who is 55th on the Web.com Tour order of merit. “It’s always fun to come back and play this golf course.” Q Hadwin will have company at the Canadian Open. Fellow Abbotsford pro Nick Taylor was granted an exemption on Monday morning and will join him in the field. Taylor sits ninth on the Canadian Tour order of merit.

Adam Hadwin participated in the RBC Dominion Securities Pro-Am at Ledgeview on Friday, finishing in fifth place. Last Thursday, he and his brother Kyle accepted a cheque for the C.H.I.L.D. Foundation from Ledgeview Ladies Amateur organizers Heather Shaw and Grace Rustulka. NEIL CORBETT Abbotsford News

Jessica Smith, a member of Abbotsford's Valley Royals track and field club, warmed up for the London Olympics with a secondplace finish in the 800 metres at the Toronto International meet last week. Smith got off to a poor start and found herself in last place at the cut-in point after the first 100 metres, but made an excellent recovery. She clocked a time of 2:01.83, just an eyelash behind fellow Olympian Melissa Bishop of Toronto (2:01.68). Smith, a North Vancouver native, is one of two Royals athletes who will compete at the Olympics, the other being high jumper Mike Mason.

TIME FOR TENNIS Local tennis players are invited to participate in singles and doubles tennis leagues, which begin play in September. The leagues offer an opportunity to play the sport at one’s own skill level. Players or teams will play at least six matches on local courts. Registration deadline is August 15.

THE

Shayla Ferraro of the Abbotsford Slammers smacks a line drive during the B.C. senior women’s provincials at Exhibition Park.

But when the doubleknockout playoffs began Saturday, the Slammers were eliminated in short order, losing their first two games. The Vancouver Spirit claimed the ‘B’ championship, edging the Surrey Steelers 7-6 in the final, while Delta won bronze. The Slammers were the lone local team in the field, and Ferraro felt they were capable of a better finish. They’d defeated Vancouver in the final of a tourney in Cloverdale a couple weeks back, and had beaten Delta in the round robin. “It was a very tough competition, and on another day, you might see three different (medalists) at the top,�

he said. “Hats off to the Vancouver Spirit. They’ve got a great club, and they deserved to win it. You’ve got to be on your game all the way through.� In the ‘A’ division, the Surrey Storm juniors took gold, beating the New Westminster Kaos in the final. Bronze went to the Coquitlam Classics. The Slammers are comprised of players in their early 20s, and Ferraro has coached this group for years. Two players – his daughter Shayla and Andrea Sigmund – have played for him since they were six years old. “It’s been a long ride,� he said. “It’s a good group of girls, and that makes it fun.�

Blueliner Tuzzolino re-signs with Heat Grizzlies, where he was named team captain.

The Abbotsford Heat have signed defenceman Nick Tuzzolino to a one-year AHL contract. Tuzzolino played well enough during a late-season audition with the Heat to earn the new deal. He’d attended training camp in Abbotsford before being assigned to the ECHL’s Utah

most memorable moment came in the regular season finale against the Toronto Marlies – he scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime as the Heat won 5-4. “Nick’s consistent play with the Utah Grizzlies during the 2011-12 regular season put him in a position to be with us on a

full-time basis from the end of March through the conclusion of last season’s playoffs,” Heat head coach Troy Ward stated in a press release. “Nick uses his size well and provided us with steady play over the final two months of the season. We are extremely excited about Nick being back with us.”
