Farm building tax exemptions create budget shortfall Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Changes to the way farm buildings can be taxed by municipalities across B.C. will have “huge implications” for Chilliwack, said Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. About 87.5 per cent of the assessed value of outbuilding improvements on agricultural land will now be exempt from taxation. As a result, a $400,000 tax shortfall for Chilliwack is being predicted for 2013, according to a city staff report from the City of Chilliwack finance department. It means taxes could go up for some or all rate classes, or services could be cut. These are the options being studied at city hall to deal with the expected shortfall. Chilliwack MLA John Les said flat out he was surprised to hear the dollar figure pegged so high. “First of all I’m a little surprised to hear the estimate (for Chilliwack) is as high as $400,000,” said. The tax changes in question arose from a provincial review of taxation in the agriculture sector. Starting next year, the exemption will be the greater of 87.5 per cent, or $50,000 of assessed value, whichever is higher. It used to be capped at $50,000. Abbotsford is predicting a $900,000 shortfall. The Farm Assessment Review Panel studied the issues and recommended the changes now being implemented. “Quite a number of farm folks felt that having all their farm buildings subject to residential assessment was unfair,” said Les. It was conducted in consultation with the Union of B.C. Municipalities, the MLA said, so it couldn’t have been a complete surprise to city officials. “The good news is this provides us with an opportunity to talk to the province about the future of farming, and farmers,” Mayor Gaetz told The Progress. “It may provoke a more thorough discussion about agricultural land, who pays for it, and who supports the taxation of it.” Continued: TAXATION/ p15

Pipe Up Network spokesman Mike Hale says given the similarities between the Enbridge and the Kinder Morgan proposals, he believes First Nations will eventually oppose both pipeline projects. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Sto:lo opposition to pipeline a question mark But Fraser Valley opposition growing, says Pipe Up Network spokesman Robert Freeman The Progress Sto:lo opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline may not be the “silver bullet” that kills the company’s proposed pipeline twinning project in the Fraser Valley, says Ben West. But the constitutional obligation to consult with First Nations supercedes even federal environmental regulations weakened by the Conservative government, and that alone could cause lengthy delays in approval, said West, an organizer at the Western Canada Wilderness Committee opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline project. But to date, the Sto:lo Nation and the Sto:lo Tribal Council, like the City of Chilliwack, the B.C. New Democratic

Party and B.C. Liberal government, have not taken a formal position on the Kinder Morgan proposal. Six Sto:lo bands in the Fraser Valley have signed the ‘Save The Fraser Declaration’ in opposition to the Enbridge pipeline proposal in northern B.C., and although the declaration refers to other pipelines carrying tar sands, it does not name the Kinder Morgan proposal specifically. Soowahlie Chief Otis Jasper said not much was known about the Kinder Morgan project at the time the declaration was signed, and the leadership of the Sto:lo Nation and Sto:lo Tribal Council both said they have not received direction from their band chiefs on what policy to take toward Kinder Morgan. Grand Chief Doug Kelly, president of the Sto:lo Tribal Council, said the council

has not formally discussed the Kinder Morgan project, but “I expect we will be looking at this proposal in due course.” “Our leadership makes informed decisions on these matters,” he said in an email to The Progress. “We rely on the advice of our Aboriginal Rights & Title team, and make our decisions at duly called Council meetings,” he said. “We have also recently signed onto an arrangement with the Province of B.C. to deal with referrals on projects of this nature.” Grand Chief Joe Hall, president of the Sto:lo Nation, also said band chiefs there have not formally discussed the Kinder Morgan proposal, but “a cautious exploration is going on.” Continued: PIPELINE/ p9

Plea expected to end Chilliwack breach of trust trial Robert Freeman The Progress A sentencing date for a former Chilliwack city official originally charged with breach of trust has been set for Aug. 21. But Grant Sanborn will plead guilty at that time to a “regulatory offence,” not the breach of trust charge, defence lawyer Jeffrey Campbell clarified Tuesday. “It’s not going to involve any criminal code conviction,” Campbell said.

A four-week trial on the breach of trust charges had been scheduled earlier this year, but that all changed after Crown and defence lawyers met in Chilliwack Monday. “It’s likely there won’t be a trial,” Robin McFee, the special prosecutor who laid the charges, confirmed Tuesday. He said the accused is expected to enter a plea at the Aug. 21 hearing, and sentencing is expected to immediately follow. That was the “game plan”

Monday, McFee said, but there was not enough court time to hear the plea and sentencing submissions, so the hearing was adjourned to Aug. 21. Sanborn was charged in June, 2010 with three counts of breach of trust after a three-year investigation by McFee into allegations of improper land-use decisions in Chilliwack from 1987 to November 1999. The special prosecutor was called in after the name of a local politician, Chilliwack MLA John

Les, surfaced during the RCMP investigation of the allegations. Les stepped down as Solicitor General in April, 2008, while the investigation was underway. But in June, 2010, McFee found “a paucity of evidence” to charge Les, but enough to charge Sanborn with “failure to fulfill his independent gatekeeper role” as the city’s approving officer. Sanborn appeared ready to fight the charges, and a lengthy trial with numerous witnesses was anticipated sometime in 2012.

But in February this year, a new defence lawyer asked the court for an adjournment to give him time to study the case, a request that was denied by the presiding judge. The next month, Sanborn re-elected to hold the trial in Supreme Court, rather than provincial court, a move that could have delayed the trial for as much as a year because of the heavy court backlog. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Aboriginal fishery opens for Chilliwack Lake sockeye Jennifer Feinberg The Progress A once thriving aboriginal fishery for Chilliwack Lake sockeye was revived on the Chilliwack/Vedder River system this week for the first time in decades. The fishery plan from Fisheries and Oceans Canada called for a six-day aboriginal fishery upstream from the Vedder bridge for dip-netting and spear fishing, while the beach seining was conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday, mostly in the Vedder canal, downstream from the railway bridge in Yarrow. It’s being described as a type of restoration, or resurrection fishery, because it was an ancient traditional fishery which now has Sto:lo descendants fishing those methods. “It has been some time since the Pilalt, Semath and Ts’elxweyeqw tribes have had opportunity to ‘resurrect’ what was once a thriving and robust traditional fishery,” wrote Murray Ned, fisheries manager of Sto:lo Tribal Council, in a recent letter.

Beach seiners haul in their net and prepare to move downstream after fishing on the Vedder River near the end of Wilson Road in Yarrow on Tuesday afternoon. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

The current run size estimate for Chilliwack Lake sockeye is 200,000, according to the Fraser River Panel — which is the highest estimate in many years. “Our technical advisors suggest that the Chilliwack Sockeye

are rather cyclical and this is one of the years when First Nations could have opportunity to renew a traditional fisher y within their respective territories, and in a way that can be harmonized with other privileged user

groups,” Ned wrote. Eleven First Nations communities around Chilliwack were involved, and it’s been decades since the last time the sockeye were abundant enough to be fished this way. Some of the stake-

holders met to discuss it on July 19, with the goal of avoiding any conflict on the river during the rare fishery. Recommendations were put forth on how to avoid the hotspots and where to direct the fishery.

Some were part of the Lower Fraser River Peacemakers, a group that has been actively collaborating to minimize and prevent any confrontations between First Nations and recreational anglers on the Fraser River.

“Peacemakers, First Nations, DFO and the Recreational sector can play a big role in ensuring that all fisheries are conducted in an orderly and manageable fashion as the First Nations with an interest plan on implementing seining, dipnetting and spearing activities in various areas through out the Vedder/Chilliwack system,” Ned’s letter continued. Rod Clapton of the BC Federation of Drift Fisheries, also a member of the Peacemakers, said he participated in meetings before the fishery opening. “Dialogue is the most important thing,” he said. “From a recreational perspective, we support the heritage aspect of this fishery.” He hopes one day there might be a recreational opening as well for Chilliwack Lake sockeye. In the meantime, the aboriginal fishery could be a wonderful demonstration fishery, he suggested. “I think people would enjoy watching the traditional methods.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

July saw a couple of rain records fall in Chilliwack Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The rain-soaked weather records continue this month. Although this part of July is considered the driest time of year “statistically” in Chilliwack,

we still broke rainfall records. In fact two records for the day were broken, according to Roger Pannett of Chilliwack, a volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada. One was July 20, when 11.7 mm of rain fell, edging out the previous

A 60-year-old Chilliwack woman is in critical condition after her car collided with a semi trailer on Tuesday afternoon near Agassiz. At 1:20 p.m., Fraser Valley Traffic Services and Agassiz RCMP officers responded to the report of a vehicle collision on Highway 7, approximately five km east of Agassiz. A 2010 Hyundai Sonata had been travelling west when it crossed the centre line into the oncoming eastbound lane. A 2008 Peterbilt semi trailer was travelling east, and the 66-year-old driver from Abbotsford saw the Hyundai move into his lane. He attempted to avoid a collision by steering his vehicle onto the south shoulder of the road. The car clipped the driver’s side of the semi and came to a stop in the north ditch. The driver of the Hyundai was extricated from her vehicle by the Agassiz and Seabird Island Fire Rescue Departments. She was then transported to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster by air ambulance. Police say that weather, road conditions, speed and the mechanical condition of the vehicles do not appear to have contributed to the crash. Driver inattention has not been ruled out. Witnesses to this collision who have not spoken to the police are asked to contact lead investigator Const. Troy Collins of the Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039.

The Chilliwack Progress Thursday, July 26, 2012

Robert Freeman The Progress A ‘town hall’ meeting organized by NDP MLA Gwen O’Mahony will be held in Chilliwack next week to hear public views on the closure of the rehab unit at Chilliwack General Hospital. O’Mahony will moderate a panel discussion July 31 at the Tzeachten Community Hall to discuss the closure of the rehab unit by the Fraser Health Authority. A public question and answer session will follow. “The purpose of the meeting is to engage the community so that Chilliwack voices are heard before any next steps are taken,” O’Mahony said in a news release. “I’m hoping that we can have a positive and productive discussion about this issue,” she said. “The panel members are bringing their unique perspectives to the town hall meeting, so this is a terrific opportunity to craft a solution to the challenges faced at Chilliwack General Hospital.” The Fraser Health Authority is sending Scott Brolin, its director of rehabilitation services, to sit on the panel. Other panel members include: Allan Hunt, president of the Chilliwack and District Seniors Resource Society; Reid Johnson, president of the Health Sciences Association; John Simpson, volunteer at the Fraser Valley Brain Injury Association; and Bonnie Pearson, secretar y/

business manager at the Health Employees Union. In an earlier interview, O’Mahony said she met with Dr. Nigel Murray, the chief executive officer of the Fraser Health Authority, and he told her “there’s data to back up” the decision to close the $2.5 million unit that opened in 2006. Chilliwack MLA John Les said Dr. Murray told him basically the same thing at an earlier meeting. FHA officials have insisted since the closure was announced on May 24, that the replacement of the inhospital clinic with an outpatient service will result in better health outcomes for patients. But hospital doctors and physiotherapists, who were not consulted about the change, said they are concerned the closure will have unintended impacts on their patients, other hospital departments and on home support services in Chilliwack. Transportation for families who must now travel to Abbotsford to visit rehab patients needing in-hospital treatment was also a concern expressed by former rehab patients. An FHA spokesman said a “task force” was formed to address transportation, home support and other issues related to the change. The July 31 meeting starts at 7 p.m. in Tzeachten Community Hall at 45855 Promontory Road. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

News Drug sales near sports complex: RCMP A large quantity of drugs valued by police at almost $12,000 was seized last week at a residence across the street from the Prospera Centre and nearby skateboard park. “The drugs, all packaged for resale, represent a significant level of trafficking suspected of taking place from the residence,” Sgt. Steve McLeod, commanding officer of the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, said in a news release. “What is concerning is that this level of drug trafficking was taking place near a public sports complex and a skateboard park — these are places where families expect to go to get away from this type of activity.” A female was arrested at the residence, but later released. The investigation continues. During the July 20 search of the residence, CRU officers seized 13 grams of heroin, 333 Tylenol 3s, 19 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of methamphetamine, almost 13 grams of powder cocaine, 14 ecstasy pills

as well as several prescription medications and about $2,000 in cash. Although there is no indication the general public was put at risk by the alleged drug house, McLeod said, “it is fortunate that we were able to disrupt the activities at the home before anyone was put at risk.”

“The Upper Fraser Valley RCMP are committed to targeting drug trafficking in this community and are extremely pleased we were able to make this seizure and remove a significant quantity of drugs that would have otherwise been sold on the street,” he said.

News

Two town hall meetings set next month Mike Hale, a spokesman for the Pipe Up Network, said given the similarities between the Enbridge and the Kinder Morgan proposals, he believes First Nations will eventually oppose both pipeline projects. Meanwhile, he said public opposition to the Kinder Morgan project is growing, and is expected to increase, as two town hall meetings are planned in Chilliwack and Abbotsford next month. “It’s still under the radar for a lot of people still ... but that’s

rapidly changing,” he said, especially after a report describing the “Keystone Kops” handling by Enbridge of a pipeline failure that spilled millions of litres of oil into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River. Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline also crosses Fraser Valley rivers and streams, and runs near an underground aquifer that supplies drinking water to the City of Chilliwack. This week, B.C. Premier Christy Clark, told Enbridge not to count on B.C government support of the northern pipeline, if they planned to operate here like they did in Michigan.

But she said the province will remain neutral until environmental reviews of the Enbridge pipeline are completed. Kinder Morgan opponents say both pipelines carry “tar sands” or diluted bitumen from Alberta, so both should not be approved because of the increased environmental risks. The town hall meeting in Chilliwack is planned for Aug. 22 at the Tzeachten Community Hall starting at 7 p.m. The Abbotsford town hall is planned for Aug. 15 at UFV’s Lecture Room B101 also starting at 7 p.m. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Get ready for the dazzling Olympics The sixth Olympic ring is schadenfreude. In the days leading up to Friday’s opening ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Games in London, the international media have been gleefully chronicling the myriad of gaffes and shortcomings that have organizers scrambling and issuing statements of reassurance that all will be well. First it was the weather, cold and rainy then suddenly so hot power lines for a new rail service to the Olympic stadium are melting, resulting in delays and shutdowns. Ah yes, transportation, the eternal Achilles heel of every modern Olympics; if it’s not cabbies protesting on the Tower Bridge, it’s everyday commuters fretting through gridlock to allow Olympic officials free passage along exclusive traffic lanes. There are worries about security, as the private company contracted to make the Games safe underestimated the magnitude of the job, necessitating the deployment of the military. Customs agents are threatening to strike. And nobody is sure how much it will all cost in the end. Sound familiar? Two years ago we were sweating many of those very same issues in the days preceding Vancouver’s Winter Olympics. And no one was more vocal in their criticism than the British media; one paper even girded their readers for “the worst Games ever.” But all of the problems were forgotten as soon as Wayne Gretzky lit the Olympic cauldron at Jack Poole Plaza. Just as they will be when the torch is set ablaze in London. And then we’ll all settle in for two weeks of dazzling athletic competition, compelling human interest stories and national pride. ~ Black Press

Help save people and get free cookies On Saturday I saw one of my best friends. It wasn’t the typical visit of wine and movies on the couch. Instead, we sat on her kingsized bed and talked quietly about how lucky she was. The day before, my friend was in a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 1 in Abbotsford. You may have seen it on the news, or read it in Tuesday’s Progress, or online. There were at least eight vehicles involved. She was the one extricated from her black Hyundai Accent after it was lodged under a dump truck. Miraculously, she survived with no broken bones and was released from hospital the next day. She did, however, receive three large lacerations to the back of head and lost four units of blood — nearly half the amount that’s in an adult human body. I found it strange that she wasn’t given blood at the hospital after losing so much, but the doctors

told her she was healthy enough that her body could make new blood without much of a problem. I’m also a healthy person and I too can make new blood Jenna without a problem. HAUCK Mind you, I’ve never had to replenish four units of blood before, but I have lost one whole unit of blood before. Twenty-five times. See, I’m a blood donor. Recently I donated my 25th unit of blood — and afterwards while there I drank my 25th cup of tea and ate my 25th packet of cookies (because cookies and juice just don’t go well together, it has to be tea and cookies). I was quite proud of myself that day. Geeky as it may sound, for a long time I was looking forward

to receiving the small teardropshaped pin that us twenty-fivers get — a simple red pin with “25” on it. And I was pleasantly surprised to open a letter a few weeks later to find a sparkly ‘bronze’ donor card with my name on it. I like to think of that card as something similar to a fancy platinum MasterCard that I can flash at people to show them how important I think I am. But my 25th donation is nothing compared to many others. Imagine donating 50 or 100 times. My dear friend and former co-worker, Penny Lett, told me that the next pin she’ll be getting is her 125th donation pin. Now that’s dedication! But that’s the type of person Penny is — very caring and selfless. In fact, it was Penny who encouraged me to make my first donation about 10 years ago. I thought about it for a while, asking myself “why should I donate blood?”

Have I ever been a recipient of donated blood before? No. Has there ever been someone close to me who suddenly needed a blood donation? No. Was it because there was a sudden shortage of donated blood in Canada? No. I decided to do it because I can. Simple as that. Because I am eligible to donate blood. I don’t know how many people I’ve helped by donating blood, but I do know that the process (about an hour to an hour and a half of answering questions, being tested, and waiting) is not that painful. Heck, even the needle isn’t that bad. And to make it more pleasant, every single person who is there to take your blood, ask you questions and walk with you over to the cookie station will thank you for coming in that day. Guaranteed. I know many people who can’t donate blood for various reasons

— they’ve lived in, or visited, foreign countries that are on the no-go list, they have medical issues, or (sad and discriminatory as it may be) they’re a homosexual male. Someone I know won’t donate specifically because of the latter reason. I respect her choice, and I don’t agree with that restriction by Canadian Blood Services either, but I still donate, and it do it for several reasons. I donate because I know there is always a need for blood. I donate because I know my blood will in fact be used, never wasted. I donate blood because I want to. But to me, the number one reason you should donate blood is if you’re eligible. The number two reason is for the free cookies. If you are eligible, think about it. You could save many people’s lives. photo@theprogess.com twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

Readers Write

Transit planners need to regroup In response to your question of the week: “Do you like the changes made to Chilliwack’s transit system?” dated July 12. Chilliwack’s “new” transit system is like electricity - there’s a positive and a negative to it. The planners behind the new transit system should have been more thorough in their planning. Perhaps it’s like many things in our lives, budget demands. These planners should make a trip down to Portland, Oregon and see how Portland does their transit system. Their plans included reducing traffic in the downtown core, and making it more ‘foot-traffic friendly.’ They added more buses and added more bus routes, and added a light-rail system so that people in the greater Portland area would be encouraged to leave their cars at home and use the transit system more. And the state of Oregon has no taxes. It so seems that the demand for a fully functioning transit system for Chilliwack is not there. People would rather use their cars. It’s more convenient! Maybe one excuse is that Chilliwack is too spread out. How could we service a community that is spread out?

The greater Los Angeles area is also spread out, yet the MTA manages to service them. And they move thousands of people on a daily basis. Well yes, their four-lane freeways are parking lots. Yes I got caught up in their rush hours - I sat there in one place without ever moving for two hours. And when I did move, it was only a few inches and then I sat there again. Do not ever get caught up in the L.A. rush hour if you are ever in L.A. That onehour trip you planned could take all day. The L.A. MTA does run on holidays. And on Christmas day and New Year’s day, you get to ride free! It’s just that one of The Progress readers complained that the Chilliwack transit does not run at all on holidays, and that those with no transport miss out with being with their friends, (something about being paid time and a half on the driver’s part), and again budget concerns, and the way Christy Clarke is “privatizing” everything. And what is up with the bus exchange in the downtown core? It is we, as the bus riders, who should have something in place that is far better. What they have is a joke. The “big city feel” that

SkinTx

The Chilliwack

Progress they marketed is for the birds! The big city feel they so much advertised must be in downtown Kabul, Afghanistan, or maybe downtown Bagdad, Iraq. We only have one bench on a very narrow sidewalk. People walk over each other to get their bus. And passers-by with their bikes and baby strollers smush the feet of those waiting for the bus. And that one bench has no shelter. What are we to do if we are standing or sitting in a downpour? And in the winter, what of the snow? The big city feel has gone south. The planners behind this must have also gone south. The planners need to regroup and come up with something better. They need to do a survey and find out what is needed and wanted from those who ride the bus. Do the planners know what their product is? And the planners and bus drivers must also know what “service” means to them. Get out of “non-existence” with your bus riders and then present it to your bus drivers. If they have to, look up the words “survey”, “product” and “service” in a good dictionary.

QUESTION:

I have a lot of sun spots and a pregnancy mask called ‘Melasma’. Is there anything out there that can treat my condition as I believe IPL laser would not work for me? - Tanya, Burnaby

ANSWER:

Correct, most Melasma should not be treated with laser, instead we have a remarkable system called SkinTx® that will restore your skin and change your life. It is a medical grade daily skin system that helps correct hyperpigmentation, aging skin, irregular skin texture and tone as well as acne on a cellular level. SkinTx® helps restore skins vitality by using a powerful combination of Retinoids, Hydroquinone, Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Vitamin C. Being a medical grade skin treatment system, SkinTx® is sold exclusively through physicians.

Buses should serve ‘working poor’ As a person who is not forced to use the municipal bus service I am still appalled by the number of complaints from those who have no choice and are frustrated by the lack of service. I only observe infrequent large diesel engineered buses spewing out heavy diesel fumes yet having few passengers, usually less than 10 people per bus. This inadequacy of service and air pollution has gone on far too long! Chilliwack municipal council senior employees, municipal administrators and engineers are all highly paid and we should have better expert advice to rectify this ongoing problem.

I, for one, applaud their efforts. The city is spread out. It is costly to run bus routes. We should be supportive, not negative and be grateful for the service we have. Criticism is so short-sighted when a person doesn’t “walk in their

shoes.” Let us give the system a chance. It may need further fine-tuning, but a bus ride is preferable to walking. Jackie Westman

the low passenger numbers. The timing of vehicle arrivals is also unsatisfactory as workers must be able to reach their destinations, eg. Cottonwood Mall, before 9 a.m. or the start of work. In any beneficial society it is necessary for the different economic levels of the community to show respect for one another. I challenge our mayor and municipal council to look again at this problem in light of “respect for the working poor” which the present bus service serves so inadequately.

Let’s give the new Chilliwack transit system a chance I am a senior and a bus rider for many years. I’ve read all the complaints in The Progress and I feel it is time to give some credit to our city council. They have certainly made improvements to bus routes and

Idiotic, dangerous driving seems more prevalent in B.C. than anywhere else in Canada, according to a new poll. The national survey of drivers by Angus Reid Public Opinion found 95 per cent of B.C. drivers spotted others talking on cellphones in the past month, more than in any other region and well above the national average of 90 per cent. B.C. respondents also reported aboveaverage rates of drivers speeding (93 per cent), tailgating (83 per cent), turning without signalling (85 per cent), changing lanes without warning (83 per cent) and running red lights (63 per cent). Seventy-one per cent had spotted a driver multitasking – such as reading, checking text

messages or applying make-up – compared to 65 per cent across Canada. “There’s a lot of bad behaviour we’re seeing on the streets,” said Angus Reid vice-president Mario Canseco, who is based in Vancouver and reports similar obser vations himself. He said the apparent rate of illegal cellphone use is shocking considering B.C. has outlawed the practice for more than two years. “It’s just bizarre that we keep seeing people using their cellphones,” he said. But Canseco noted 81 per cent of B.C. respondents said only a few of the drivers in their city were bad drivers, while 19 per cent said most to all others on the road were bad.

In 1926 in Souris, Manitoba, Andy Murray began selling Star, Essex and Hudson cars from his implement business. By 1934, he had expanded into the GM line and today, the Murray Auto Group has dealerships across Canada. Darren Bosch is quite the astute businessman and while still in school, he quickly assessed that this was one company that he wanted to grow with. That assessment has paid off. Darren grew up just outside of Calgary while his father worked his way up the corporate ladder at Spartan Controls, an oil field supply company. He enjoyed sports but wasn’t particularly a big athlete in school. He was consistently an average student who enjoyed the dramatic arts. “I was also a BMX racer when I was younger,” he said. When Darren was 13, his parents split up and he moved to Moose Jaw,

Saskatchewan with his mother. “This is where my mom’s family was from and that’s why we relocated there. I ended up living there for 19 years.” After high school, he began taking some business courses at a local community college but never completed all of the courses. Instead, he got into the construction industry and became quite the proficient carpenter. It was while he

was working on a roof in the middle of winter in Moose Jaw, that Darren had an epiphany. “I stood there thinking that there had to be a better way of making a buck,” he chuckled. He returned to school to earn his diploma in Business Administration and admits that he enjoyed it much more the second time around because he was able to apply it to real life and was doing it for a purpose. Although Darren now had a focus, he was still relatively undecided as to what he was going to do. “Charles Vanden Brock, who owns a GM dealership in Moose Jaw under the Murray Group, came to speak to our class and I was the one who was supposed to thank him. I presented him with a gift and I wrapped it using my resume,” he smiled. His ingenious approach worked and Darren began working at the dealership soon thereafter. “I began working for Charles in January 2001 and finished college in April.” Continued: BOSCH/ p22

Health

The pursuit of happiness is a serious business Dr. Rob Lees Progress Contributor Earlier this year the leader of a mainly Buddhist country said that they were going to measure the relative wealth of their state not only by GDP (Gross Domestic Product) but by happiness. The concept hasn’t received a great deal of attention in western press dominated by stories of crime, economics and political conflict. Unfortunate. The closest thing Chilliwack has to measure happiness is the ‘Quality of Life Survey’ conducted by the Chilliwack Social Research and Planning Council. (Watch for it next year). When you contrast measuring happiness with atrocities occurring in the Middle East, or Afghanistan, it seems a cute but superficial idea. It really isn’t and we would be better to see that the pursuit of happiness is a serious business. Genuinely happy people don’t join gangs, terrorize, live lives filled with greed or the desire to dominate and control others. A fabulous thing about modern science is the evidence it is producing that supports the great truths about happiness that have been taught by religious faith. Here are a few of them: It is better to give than to receive. Studies, including those of young children, have found that we are happiest when we are benevolent, giving things away. Love others as you love yourself. Research has demonstrated that we are born with mirror neurons that give us the ability to empathize and feel what others are feeling. Toddlers will spontaneously rush to help someone who is in distress. Give and don’t count the cost. When we give ourselves with a sense of passion to a cause we experience a state that is called “flow”. This is one of the more durable forms of happiness and is part of a purpose filled life. As a man thinks, so is he. Our focus of attention can depress us, worr y us, make us myopic or it can ennoble and expand us. Cognitive psychology has demonstrated that we can train our

brains. Athletes do it to compete. Although it takes consistent effort, people can manage

or cure many mental health problems. Even better, we can use these “skills of mind” to cre-

ate personal qualities consistent with our long view of life. In coming weeks,

my colleagues, Er yn Wicker and Marie Amos, will be writing about the field of posi-

tive psychology and its application to a variety of aspects of our lives; health, parenting , post

traumatic growth, education and the workplace. Continued: HEALTH/ p35

Bosch a success in auto industry BOSCH from p16 His career in the auto industry started from the ground up. He began working at the Moose Jaw dealership as a sales rep, was elevated to the position of assistant sales manager shortly after, and after a year in that role became the sales manager. “I started as sales manager in 2004 and was there until I left earlier this year,� he said.

Darren didn’t particularly enjoy selling cars although he thoroughly enjoys the auto industry. Rather, it’s the people and the business side of things that he prefers. “The industry is always evolving and I enjoy working with people. I also saw early on that customer service is the key to success. I stayed with the company because I saw potential and I didn’t just want

to be a guy working for the dealership. I wanted to be the guy owning the dealership,� he said passionately. Darren received that opportunity in late January 2012 when he found out that the Murray Group was intending on buying the Honda dealership in Chilliwack. “They knew my ultimate goal and they approached me about buying into this dealer-

ship. The Murrays are third generation auto dealers who have the finger on the pulse of the auto industry. I took a leap of faith in coming to Chilliwack because my family and I decided to move here without ever having stepped foot in the community, although we had done our research. We have a lot of things going on right now with our second child on the way and with trying to sell our house back in Moose Jaw but sometimes you can’t wait for the perfect moment. Sometimes, you just have to grab an opportunity when it’s presented,� he smiled. Darren arrived in Chilliwack on March 29 and his family will soon follow. “I love Chilliwack and we’ve now bought a house so it feels more like home.� As general manager of Murray Honda, he is excited to have such a great building, a terrific location and they’ve even added some new staff while retaining the previous staff. He is putting in some incredibly long hours but he is enjoying the time spent at the dealership. Darren has always been one to do things the right way and he wants to be accessible. Customer service is one of his strong suits and his success in the industry thus far proves this. When Darren has some down time, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially when it’s out on the water. “I have a boat and love anything that is near or on a lake.� Given his carpentry background, he also enjoys building things. “I do find it relaxing. I guess it’s because I’m doing it because I want to and not because I have to,� he laughed.

Food and fitness in the cycle tour spotlight Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

“They collect your purchases from the farms you’ve visited and bring them back to the registration area for you to pick up when you’re done,” said Hayes. Cyclists like to make purchases en route and some of the bikes don’t have baskets, so the shuttle makes three sweeps of the route throughout the day, which is appreciated by the participants. They had more than 500 cyclists last year and are expecting a good crowd for this weekend. “Every year it grows,” she said. “The weather looks good for the weekend so far, which is encouraging.” New stops this year include a dairy with adorable calves at JMC farms, the Young Dairyman’s Association will be set up on-site with informa-

tion and Birchwood dairy ice cream cones will be for sale. The VQA BC Wine store will be on location this year at Willow Creek Farm, a charming vineyard. Another addition is the Wagner’s Five Acre Farm, with rustic trails and benches and nature at its finest. Slow Food Chilliwack Cycle Tour, July 29, (rain or shine!), $15, children 12 and under get in free. Partial proceeds to Terra Madre Fund. Registration starts at 9 a.m. the Tourism Chilliwack Visitor Centre at 44150 Luckakuck Way. Above: Richard Pye of Chilliwack River Valley Honey tastes fresh honey from the farm.

It’s important to know where your food comes from. That’s part of the thinking behind the Slow Food Chilliwack Cycle Tour, which will be meandering through Greendale farm country on Sunday, July 29. It’s the fourth year of the event which is presented in partnership with Slow Food Vancouver, says Joldie Hayes, marketing specialist with Tourism Chilliwack. “It’s an awesome day. People meet the farmers, ask questions about what they do, or take a little tour of the farm.” They can pick blueberries, visit a beautiful garden or see the goats. Registration is at the Tourism Chilliwack Visitor Centre on Luckakuck Way at 9 a.m. Then folks get on their bikes and take a self-guided tour of area farms and food producers. “The whole day is about food,” said Hayes, “but there’s also a strong educational component.” At the Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey farm, owner Richard Pye will be offering what he calls “bee demonstrations.” Bees are the hard-working pollinators of many types of plants and without them, people would be in trouble. He describes the bee life cycle and the different roles of the queen, workers and drones. “It’s fun,” he said. “We usually open up the hive and I show them the honey, the bees and sometimes some eggs. “People love finding out more about the bees.” He’s owned the honey farm for the last seven of its 32 years in business. The farm got flooded out in the CRV about 15 years ago, and that’s when it moved to Adams Road in Greendale. Cyclists will tour the 24-km route at their own pace, taking breaks or visiting as many stops as they like. “The nice thing is the road is flat throughout Greendale, so it’s very doable for people of all ages,” added Hayes. A shopping shuttle service provided by Tourism Chilliwack is one of the perks of the event.

Changes afoot at the Chilliwack Fair specializes in interactive games. “They’ve got trampolines, mini ejection seats, bungee cords and bouncy rides,” Hinkley enthused. “We’re trying to ramp things up with something a little more energetic.” Building 2 will have more displays than ever, and Hinkley hopes to have everything as hands-on interactive as it can get.

“Instead of just walking past and seeing something, we want people to get involved,” he said. “There’s still going to be a heavy agricultural feel to it, but it’s going to be educational about how things get from the field to your plate.” If the weather holds up, Hinkley hopes to see 40,000-plus people through the gates between Aug. 10-12.

To help with that goal, a free shuttle is going from Party in Park on Aug. 10. Those taking the shuttle will also get free admittance to the fair, and a Chilliwack Fair booth will be set up at the next two Party in the Parks to get word out.

The 140th annual Chilliwack Fair promises to have some old and a whole lot of new as organizers try to get a new generation interested in B.C.’s second longest running fair. Anyone who has attended the fair over the last few years will see familiar groups like the Chilliwack Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association and Chilliwack District 4H putting on familiar shows. The agricultural underpinnings will still be apparent with dairy shows and such, and the always popular rodeo will provide plenty of bronco bustin’ bull ridin’ action. But president Ed Hinkley is excited about things never before seen at the Chilliwack Fair. This year’s menu includes the World Freestyle Skateboarding Round Up and a roller derby bout featuring the local NWO Roller Girls versus the Haney Hooligans. “We’re hoping to provide an event that attracts people who normally wouldn’t come,” Hinkley said. “We’ve got things we hope will appeal to the younger demographic, to young families.” The absence of midway rides sets that back a bit, with the usual provider of rides unavailable due to other commitments. But Hinkley and company have filled the void with PartyWorks Interactive, a Surreybased company that

Black powder shoot like a family reunion Jenna Hauck The Progress A small group of men and women in animal hide pants and 19th century dresses and jackets make their way through the woods, each with a rifle in their hands. Light smoke lingers in the trees. The air smells of freshly ignited gunpowder — the pungent odour of burnt sulphur stings the nostrils. As they make their way along the wellpacked trail to the next target, they poke fun at each other and joke about who is a better shot. Suddenly, the laughter is silenced by

the sharp crack of a gun going off. Then another. And another. The bullets snap through the crisp morning air, some hitting the metal targets with a ‘ping’ sound. The group is one of many taking part in the Fraser Valley Frontiersmen Black Powder Club’s 40th annual Buffalo Shoot. About 80 folks from western Canada and the U.S. are camping out at the Chilliwack Fish and Game Club in the Chilliwack River Valley for three days of shooting, archery, knife-and-tomahawk throwing, and fun competitions. They are wearing replica clothes from the fur trade era, firing single-shot rifles and pistols, and living how North Americans

lived 200 years ago. It’s not just about the black powder firearms and the shooting. Shannon Storozynski enjoys learning about how everyday items were made — the clothing, jewellery, blankets, furniture — and she often teaches herself how to make things by researching as much as she can to figure out the best way to create the items. She’s made ‘brain-tanned’ leather pants, dresses and jackets. Brain tanning is a process that uses animal brains or other fatty materials to alter the leather. The resulting supple, suede-like hide is usually smoked heavily to prevent it from rotting.

Shannon also has a wool dress she made entirely by hand — and without a pattern. It’s a rich burgundy colour with dark blue accents. Hundreds of tiny glass beads have been hand-strung and sewn along the edge of the dress. Dozens of small shells are attached to the chest and they clink together delicately when the garment moves. “I can’t teach you how to make a dress, but I can tell you how not to make a dress,” says Storozynski. She put more than 100 hours into making the wool dress — many of those hours were spent doing something wrong, taking it apart, and then doing it correctly. Continued: BUFFALO/ p36

camp without any pants on. But he’s not naked. He’s wearing a breechcloth (like a loincloth) and leather leggings, which are basically crotchless pant legs attached to, and held up by, a belt. Although he’s the only one in a breechcloth at this weekend’s event, no one seems to mind. Everyone appears to be quite comfortable with his attire. In fact, at one rendezvous event in Heffley Creek, B.C. where the rules about wearing modern clothing are much more strict than the rules at this Buffalo Shoot, there is a woman who goes around and checks to see if anyone is wearing something they shouldn’t, says Smith. She’ll come up to someone in a breechcloth, and gently slide her hand underneath the cloth and onto their bottom to see if they’re wearing underwear. If they are, she’ll cut it off of them, right then and there. If she feels nothing but bare skin, she removes her hand and lets them be. Perhaps it’s a bit too personal for some, but it demonstrates the comfort level these black powder enthusiasts have with each other. They’re like family. “It’s not just the shooting, it’s the camaraderie and the history,” says Mark Lewis. “It’s where you go to unplug,” says Smith. “You take your watch off, turn your phone off, get away from the electricity and internet and cable. Your form of entertainment is visiting with people and talking with people.” Smith and Lewis chat with others around several lit candles and a campfire. The sky grows a deeper blue as the sun tucks itself behind the Cascade mountains. The canvas tents glow a warm orange as the sky turns almost black and the stars become visible. One couple stands up and bids goodnight to their friends. “We’ll see you in the morning for breakfast,” one says. And with that they turn and walk back to their sleeping quarters, listening to the chatter and laughter of their black powder family fade into the night. photo@theprogess.com twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

The Chilliwack

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Great game with strange name gains momentum Eric J. Welsh, The Progress If you’d told Carol Haworth at 50 years old that she would be winning national titles at 71, she would have given you a real funny look and called you daft. If you’d told her that she would spend her golden years passionately advocating for a sport named after a preserving process, she’d have slowly backed away and looked for help. If you’d told her that Chilliwack would be a hotbed of activity for one of North America’s fastest growing sports — well, at least that one might have seemed feasible. Yet here we are in 2012, and all these things have come to pass. Haworth is a national champion. Haworth is a passionate advocate for pickleball. And Chilliwack has become the northern frontier for a game that was born in the Seattle area and found its legs in the southern United States. Hawor th’s title came two weeks ago at Pickleball Canada’s first ever National Open Championship, held at the Abbotsford Rec. Centre and Yale secondary school. The tournament was national in name but international in scope, with several Americans making the trip to the Fraser Valley. “I think we had 160plus people who entered the competition, and we had 14 courts,” Haworth said. “For a first-time event, it was hectic but it was really well run. The level of play was just superb.” Haworth took top spot in the 70-plus women’s doubles competition, and teamed

with Earl Hill to finish second in the 70-plus mixed-doubles division. Several other Chilliwackians won hardware at the tournament. Elaine Griffiths won silver in 70-plus women’s doubles and again in 65-plus mixed doubles. Kathy Parkes was a gold medalist in the 60-plus women’s doubles division. Henr y Meerkirk, Brian Parkes and Mandy Witt claimed bronze medals. Haworth, who has competed and won at the World Senior Games level, was delighted to face some of the best of the best — players who can match her in technical and strategic expertise. “When you first start the game, it’s all about standing at the back line and banging the ball as hard as you can,” Haworth explained. “But close to 80 per cent of pickleball now is what we call the ‘soft’ or ‘dinking’ game. It’s a cat and mouse style, and it’s interesting playing, and watching, games against people who know how to play that sort of game.” The formation of a national governing body (Pickleball Canada) two years ago has been another significant step forward for what Haworth calls the “great game with the strange name.” Search Google.ca and you’ll find pickleball associations springing up everywhere. You’ll find online merchants selling pickleball paddles. Here in Chilliwack, Dave Snyder in the Parks and Recreation Department has helped Pickleball Chilliwack get outdoor courts at GW Graham. No longer are they confined to the

dark gymnasium at Evergreen Hall. Five years ago, Pickleball Chilliwack had 20 regulars. They have more than 30 now, with a whole bunch more coming and going at various points in the year. With the first national tournament out of the way, Haworth thinks it likely Pickleball Chilliwack will host one of its own in 2013. With nine new courts staked out at GWG, she thinks they have the venue they need. “It’s exciting that we’ve grown so much and every time I open my mouth I’m talking pickleball,” Haworth laughed. Get more info on Pickleball Chilliwack from Haworth at 604792-5885, Ken Witt (604-769-2717) or the Chilliwack Seniors Society (604-793-9979).

Basketball Day comes to Chilliwack The Chilliwack Sports Academy is expecting 100-plus kids Saturday at the first annual Basketball Day in Chilliwack. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Promontory Save-On-Foods. Sonic FM will have their Community Cruiser on site, and there will be prizes and giveaways from Basketball BC. CSA is also accepting donations of used sports equipment.

The whole event is designed to promote physical activity for kids and introduce them to CSA. Parents and kids will play basketball with the academy’s coaches, and have the chance to sign up for the next Steve Nash Youth Basketball program. The Steve Nash program is the flagship offering for the academy. Typically starting in January,

it gives youngsters a chance to learn the fundamentals in a fun environment. The program has been so popular that CSA will now be offering it in September as well. CSA runs many other programs, providing preschool soccer, golf for kids, summer camps and youth mentoring. Get more info online at chilliwacksportsacademy.com.

Golden Bears grab another Cascade The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team continues to lose talent to their former coach. Barnaby Craddock, now the head coach of the Alberta Golden Bears, has lured starting center Jasper Moedt to

Edmonton. Moedt joins shooting guard Joel Friesen, who transferred to the University of Alberta last month. “Leaving UFV wasn’t easy. It’s been great going there, being in my community, and I’ve learned a lot. But at the

same time, I’ve lived my whole life here now, and I feel like I need to move away for personal growth,” Moedt said. Like Friesen, Moedt will have to red-shirt next season due to transfer rules. Both have two years of playing eligibility left.

PCSL men hunt down playoff spot Curing the slice

Chilliwack’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League squad is playoff bound after a weekend win over West Van FC. CFC dumped West Van FC 3-1 in their

regular season finale, Saturday night at Exhibition Stadium, to finish fourth in the seven team circuit. CFC’s final record was 5-4-3, which tied them in points with the third place team, West Van FC. But West Van FC finished third based on the first tie-breaker, goal differential (plus five versus plus four). Connor MacMillan opened the scoring in Saturday night’s game, roofing a penalty shot

at the 20 minute mark. Zenow Renearts doubled the Chilliwack lead with a well-placed free kick. Renearts scored the third Chilliwack goal off a pretty feed from MacMillan. MacMillan’s goal was his ninth of the year, which tied him with Victoria United’s Nils Webber for the Reserve League scoring title. His fifth and sixth goals of the season moved Renearts into the top five in league

scoring. The season-ending Challenge Cup tournament will be played Saturday and Sunday at Exhibition Stadium in Chilliwack. ● Chilliwack’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League women had an extremely difficult weekend, dropping a pair of one-sided games on the road. The team dropped a 10-0 final in Penticton on Saturday, with

Kelsay Rufiange (four goals), Chrystal Schuder (three) and Jill Flockhart (three) doing the damage for the Pinnacles. Chilliwack lost 5-0 Sunday in Kelowna, with Courtney Hemmerling netting three for the home team. As the host team, Chilliwack (3-6-5) will have a spot in this weekend’s Challenge Cup, taking place Saturday and Sunday at Townsend Park.

The brain will often subconsciously aim further and further to the left of the target, writes Jennifer Greggain The sliced shot for a right handed golfer results in the ball starting to the left of the intended target line, and arcing back to the right side of the target. The result is an incredibly frustrating loss of accuracy and distance. To curb a sliced golf shot, there are three very important parts to the equation. The first is your set up. In an attempt to selfcure a slice, the brain will often subconsciously aim its player further and further to the left of the target. Unawares, this causes more of a slice than a fix. Be sure to check that your club face, feet and shoulders are aimed square to your target. To practice this on the range, place two clubs on the ground, allowing both the feet and club face to remain square to the target. Once your set up is square, you can begin the next phase of curing your slice. You must get the ball to start on your target line, rather than to the left. This is often the trickiest part of curing the slice. There are a number of swing thoughts, and hundreds of gadgets on the market to help with this fix. Ultimately, the path of your golf club is most likely making an out-to-in swing path, causing the ball to start to the left of the target. To get the ball starting on your target line, you need to feel like the path of your club is making an in-to-out swing path. Try hitting the inside of the ball. Place the stripe of a range ball on the inside portion of the ball, where you want to hit it, and hit several balls where you’re feeling like you are hitting that inside part of the ball, and your arms are swinging to the right. This is often the hardest part of curing the slice, because your brain is trying to guard against hitting to the right side in the first place! Once you are able to get the ball started at your target line (and not to the left), you are ready to tackle the third and final piece to curing the slice, getting your club face square to the target line. Because you have probably been hitting a slice for a long time, you have been compensating by leaving the club face open while the path is swinging to the left. You must now wake up your hands, and let your club face release. For some players, this means allowing the arms and hands to naturally roll over, which lets the club face release and square up through impact. The result is the golf ball starting on your intended target line, and continuing in a straight ball flight, or even with a slight draw, something that will give any slicer plenty of reason to celebrate! In the end, curing the slice is no easy task. Most players have faced this plague, and all can agree that this is not an overnight cure. You must be willing to commit to practicing hard, and never give up! Jennifer teaches golf to adults and juniors at the Chilliwack Golf Academy. She played professionally on tour for over 10 years, including 2 years on the LPGA. She was also named the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Low Teaching Pro of the Year.

NICHOLS Dorothy was one of four daughters born to Henry and Mary Brown of Whitley Bay, Northumberland, England. Mom joined the R.A.F. in 1941 where she met and married John Nichols, pilot officer R.C.A.F., and followed him to Indian Head, Sask. after the war. They moved to various provinces throughout Canada during their marriage and retired to Lindell Beach, BC in 1984.

We would like to thank Dr. William Clarke and the wonderful caregivers of Greendale as well as LPN’s and nurses that cared for mom as if she were their own.

Rest in Peace, We love you. No service by request.

REID Steven James

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Steven REID James Reid. Left to mourn Steven: his son Kyle and daughter Stephanie, whom he loved more than anything this world could offer. His mother Cora, sister Debby, and brother Vern. Also nephews and nieces Jeremy, Hayley, Raymond, Chelsea and Willem. And of course, the reason for his happiness, and the twinkle in his eyes, his angel Alison. In the time Alison and Steve

were together she always had him smiling. Their favourite time together was spent riding their Harleys; they rode them together every time they got the chance. He knew he was well loved. This past year he took great pride and pleasure in working with his son Kyle on his truck. He loved to take his children on adventures such as skiing, quading, and hiking. There was no limit on the amount of ventures they would do together. He was more of a big brother than an uncle to Jeremy and Hayley because he lived with them when they were younger. When Jeremy just turned 18 Steve took Jeremy to Colorado for his first job and taught him how to build log homes, where they created many memories. Steve could play the guitar and craft beautiful wooden furniture for his family and friends. Steve drove every truck out there. He saw it all as he drove long haul across Canada and the U.S. He leaves many buddies behind too soon, but all of which can agree he was a great friend who was always there. Steve did many things that we will all remember with love and smiles. He was truly a happy man. He left us too soon but will never be forgotten.

STEINWAND Erwin

E r v i n Steinwand of Chilliwack BC passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 21, 2012 at STEINWAND the age of 90. He was born on August 19, 1921 in Klostitz, Romania. Mourning his loss are his daughter Dianne (Shaun) Mulrooney; his son Waverley (Trish) Steinwand; and daughter Lorna (Doug) Lemna; six grandchildren: Bryan (Jamey) Mulrooney, Darren (Tanzi) Mulrooney, Kristen and Tara Lemna, and Maddy and Jess Steinwand; four great-grandchildren: Ewan, Liam, Keira and Cooper. Also mourning his loss is his sister Ida (Herb) Kraushar. He is predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Ruth Steinwand and his brother Alex. In 1953 Ervin and Ruth moved from Alberta to begin dairy farming on Fairfield Island in Chilliwack. They continued to enjoy farm life until the farm was sold in 1968. Too young to retire, he began driving bus for the Chilliwack School District. After retirement they enjoyed travelling to many destinations with friends and family. A highlight for the entire family was vacationing each summer at a good water skiing lake. Ervin enjoyed good physical health throughout his life. During the last 4½ years, because of the progression of his Alzheimer’s, he resided at Cascade Lodge where he received excellent care. The viewing will be held at Henderson’s Funeral Home, Chilliwack on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 from 7:30-9:00 pm. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Chilliwack Evangelical Missionary Church, 9310 Williams St., Chilliwack, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations

may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC, #300-828 West 8th Ave., Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2.
