Celebrating 50 years of Airshow

ROCKIN’ RIVER

Abbotsford International Airshow takes off Friday through Sunday

GURDWARA SHOOTING

This weekend brings the city to a full half century of the Abbotsford International Airshow. The Abbotsford Flying Club was formed in 1961, and put on its first air show the following year with $700 in seed money from the Abbotsford Rotary Club. Some 14,000 spectators attended, seeing the “Red Baron” in a Fokker Triplane and other aircraft. In year two the attendance doubled. This single event has given the city a character it would not otherwise enjoy. In Abbotsford to help celebrate the milestone are the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the CF Skyhawks parachute team. The civilian performers include the Red Bull Airforce Squirrel Suit Flyers and the Indy Boys with a jet-powered school bus. The gates open each day at 8 a.m., when visitors can see the Canadian Museum of Flight and static displays, and the action begins at 11 a.m. with the singing of the national anthems.

50th show is pilot’s first

Kevin MILLS

Abbotsford News

Pete McLeod has picked the right time to make his inaugural Abbotsford Airshow appearance. The Canadian air racer and aerobatic flyer will make his debut tomorrow as part of the 50th anniversary event being held at the Abbotsford International Airport. McLeod arrived in the Lower Mainland on Tuesday to prepare for the show, one of 15 he is doing across Canada this season. While new to Abbotsford, McLeod has performed in B.C. before. “Last summer was my first time flying out here. I did a couple of shows over English Bay in conjunction with the Celebration of Lights festival,” said the 28-year-old pilot, who has also performed at Boundary Bay. “Abbotsford is one of the bigger air shows in Canada, and North America for that matter, so it’s exciting for me.” McLeod made a name MCLEOD for himself in 2009 when he became the first Canadian and the youngest pilot to ever compete in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. He has competed all over the world, but said he always enjoys the Canadian crowds, having grown-up in northwestern Ontario. “Canada is my favourite place to fly.” While an accomplished air racer, his airshow performances require a different kind of flying – freestyle aerobatics – which gives him a little more freedom. “We get to play around a little more with all the fun things that these wonderful modern aerobatic planes can do.

Canadian air racer and aerobatic pilot Pete McLeod is making his first appearance at the Abbotsford International Airshow tomorrow afternoon. “I do a solo aerobatics show, a fairly aggressive aerobatics.” Every pilot has his own style, and McLeod said he is anxious to add his show to Abbotsford’s long history of performances. In the past, crowds have been caught off-guard by his performances. “The type of airplane I fly, and my style of flying, is something people don’t always expect an airplane to even be able to do, never mind have they seen it before. It brings a shock factor.” He said he likes to keep his show busy and moving, and to keep the audience nervous, but entertained. McLeod will be performing in his Edge 540 – the same aircraft that he races in, with a few alterations to the prop and motor setup. Now a seven-year veteran on the flying circuit, McLeod said he has loved planes

from the very beginning. “I grew up in a plane, my first ride came when I was six weeks old.” By the time he was three, he remembers sitting in his father’s lap in the cockpit, handling the plane’s controls. As a bush pilot in the north, which he calls the “wild west of the flying world,” McLeod learned a few moves that proved helpful in his aerobatic career. He has a passion for speed and performance, making him a natural for the flying world, and he plans to keep on doing what he loves. “It’s been a wild ride, so to speak.” The 50th annual Abbotsford International Airshow opens tomorrow and runs Aug. 10-12. There is a full schedule of static and in-air demonstrations. McLeod appears all three days at 3:30 p.m. For more visit abbotsfordairshow.com.

Sentenced for bank robbery Officer arrested thief walking near crime scene

A man who was arrested not far from an Abbotsford bank he had just robbed has been sentenced to more than two years in prison. Matthew Allan Keefe, 29, of Chilliwack was handed 25 months in jail after pleading guilty on July 27 to one count of robbery. Keefe walked into a bank in the 32800 block of South Fraser Way on July 10, approached a teller and handed over a note implying that he was carrying a weapon in his backpack. The teller handed over a small amount of cash, and Keefe fled on foot. Witnesses provided his description to offi-

cers who arrived on the scene. An officer who left the bank then came across Keefe walking along Bourquin Crescent, not far from the robbery scene. Evidence, including video surveillance, confirmed Keefe as the culprit. Keefe is also currently before the courts in Chilliwack for charges of theft, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop at an accident, fraud, and breach of his probation. His next appearance on those matters is Aug. 10.

Neighbour reports python on the loose Vikki HOPES Abbotsford New

A Burmese python with an apparent penchant for chicken prompted a call to the Abbotsford Police Department on Sunday morning. Const. Ian MacDonald said a resident in the 33800 block of Mayfair Avenue called police just before 10 a.m. to report that the five-footlong reptile was inching its way toward the chickens he kept in his yard. The resident knew who owned the python, but didn’t want to leave his chickens to track down the person, MacDonald said. Police quickly located the nearby owner, who informed them that the python had escaped his confines three days earlier. The man didn’t realize the snake had escaped the residence. The pair were reunited without incident. MacDonald said it was an unusual call for police. “Who would you normally call if you spot a reptile? ... If they’re dealing with an emergency situation, people should call police. We don’t take exception to that,” he said.

Downtown Bookworm mystery solved

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

The mystery of the missing bookworm has been solved. The art piece, which disappeared from Abbotsford’s historic downtown core last month, is gone for good, and Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said it was a misunderstanding. He said the manager of the property where the bookworm was located, at the corner of Pauline Street and Essendene Avenue, had noticed that the wood on the sculpture was rotting. A name plate on the four-by-five-foot solidwood creation indicated it had been sponsored by the Propsera Credit Union, which no longer has a branch at that site. The property manager assumed the sculpture had been left behind by the business and was no longer wanted, so he had it taken to the dump. He did not know that the piece, depicting a bookworm reading an open book, had been co-sponsored by the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association (ADBA) and the Prospera Credit Union in 2001 for $6,000, and donated to the city. It was one of nine “bench art” pieces located in the downtown core and among those slated for restoration. The sculpture was reported missing in early July, and Abbotsford Police began investigating. MacDonald said the man recently came forward after seeing news reports about the incident. He is not believed to be from Abbotsford. An investigator tried to see if the piece could be salvaged, but it was too late, MacDonald said. ADBA president Tina Stewart said the mistake was understandable. She said the matter has brought more attention back to the bench art pieces – and the one that went missing. “We’re still getting a lot of comments about it (the bookworm) ... It is definitely missed,” she said.

Public supports fair despite heat Despite scorching temperatures that forced the midway to close for an afternoon, Agrifair enjoyed an increase in attendance. “Even though the weather didn’t really co-operate with us this year, our attendance appears to be up over last year,” Agrifair president Ernie Silveri said. He pointed to Sunday, Aug. 5, as an example of community support. He said the day began with a good turnout for the free Psalm 23 pancake breakfast and new youth-led gospel service, but attendance fell off drastically during the scorching afternoon heat. It was so hot even West Coast Amusements was forced to keep the midway closed through the afternoon. Yet, as the heat died down, people flocked back to the fair. “We had our best crowd of the weekend for the Mighty Fraser Rodeo Sunday evening and a record crowd for the Starfield concert which closed Sunday’s fair,” Silveri noted. “At the end of the day, our overall Sunday attendance was up. It clearly showed the community wants to come to the fair even if it is just for a few hours. It also proved the value of hav-

It also marked the MFR debut of announcer Al Parsons and rodeo clown JJ Harrison. “Al’s booming voice, positive attitude and wealth of knowledge, and JJ’s familyfriendly clowning added so much to this year’s rodeo. We have every intention of

inviting both of them back for future rodeos,” Agrifair general manager Pamela Brenner said. She said visitors also appreciated the new look of FunField, particularly the addition of the Crazy Balls, a hit with young and old alike. Agriculture remains at the heart of Agrifair and this year’s newly reconfigured Agriland saw audiences take advantage of the opportunity to see farm animals up close, watch

sheep shearing and regular farrier and milking demonstrations. The 4-H program also continues to expand. “Each year, more and more local agri-businesses are working with us to build a bigger and better 4-H show. “They recognize how important Agrifair is as a venue for both competition and camaraderie,” Agrifair vice-president Al Philps said. Seventeen-year-old Bailey Alexis (Rathbone) of Coquitlam used the hit song “Halo” to propel herself to victory and first place prize money of $1,500 in the fourth-annual Valley Voices competition. In addition to the cheque from Agrifair, the prize package includes a vocal workshop with Darcy D, a session with Nuu Music Artist Management, a free photo shoot at Revival Arts Studio, a gift certificate from Long & McQuade and a three-song demo from Studio Downe Under. Judging the competition this year were Valley Voices alumnus Victoria Duffield, now a Warner Music recording artist, Dave Faber of Mission’s Faber Drive and deejay Kenny Jones of the Sonic Nation.

Toddler falls from window A 16-month-old girl was treated in hospital for cuts and bruises on Tuesday night after she fell from a second-storey window onto a driveway. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the toddler had been playing alone on a coffee table in the living room of the home in the 31200 block of Upper Maclure Road while her mom went downstairs to do laundry. It appears that the girl then repeatedly pushed on the window screen, which gave way. Her mom discovered what had happened when she returned upstairs. The child was in the home with the mom when emergency crews arrived, and she was transported to hospital. MacDonald said the girl was lucky to have sustained only minor injuries from the eight-foot fall.

ADVERTORIAL

BY DR. ANDREA PECHEY

The most important thing to know about a rabbit’s digestive tract is that it is a finely tuned fermentation system that will come to a grinding halt if not fed properly, causing a painful condition known as “stasis”. So to keep things moving along, here is what to feed your little cottontail: HAY: Fiber is an essential part of a healthy rabbit digestive tract and as such, hay is THE most important part of your bunny’s diet. Adult rabbits should be eating timothy hay NOT alfalfa hay; this should be reserved for juveniles because of its higher protein and sugar content. Alfalfa should only be used sparingly as a treat for adult rabbits. VEGETABLES: Leafy greens are also important and can include basil, bok choy, broccoli leaves, carrot tops, celery, cilantro, clover, collard greens, dandelion leaves (yup, start weeding!), dill, romaine and dark leaf lettuces, mint, mustard greens, parsley and water cress. Make sure

vegetables are fresh and washed before offering them to your bunny. Some no-nos include broccoli stems/tops (they make them gassy... phew!), iceberg lettuce and cabbage. Others that should be fed sparingly include kale and carrots (due to high calcium content). PELLETS: Make sure the pellet that you purchase is fresh, high in fiber and low in protein as higher protein pellets can lead to obesity in your pet bunny. Another important consideration is that pellet intake should be decreased as your rabbit ages. TREATS: We all LOVE treats and so do bunnies, but again, feed them sparingly. Avoid high carb food items that you enjoy (pastas, pretzels etc) and commercial bunny treats; they tend to be high in fat and sugar. Fruits make GREAT bunny treats and can also help increase their water intake. Some favorites include strawberries, bananas, pineapples and apples. Yum!

Premiers’ pipeline posturing doesn’t help Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views The B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “world-leading” safety and spill response, as well as meet-

ing the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides. Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition. There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring. All this political theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-

experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has

I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed... been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years. The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable?

Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

BC Hydro is misleading us again. They say that the vast majority of their customers are now glad to have smart meters. They say that only about three per cent are “holding out.” More than 200,000 B.C. residents have told BC Hydro that they do not want ‘smart’ meters. This does not take into account the 54 municipalities calling for a moratorium on their installation. They represent another million British Columbians. BC Hydro’s estimate of three per cent applies only to those persons who have actively and repeatedly stated, in letters, with signage and/or “securement” of their analogue meters, that they do not give permission to have a wireless smart meter installed on their homes. This is a timeconsuming endeavour and one not likely to be pursued by any but the most determined and persistent in the population. Hydro’s 3 per cent does not include: Q all of the meters installed on homes and businesses without the consent of owners; Q all those whose signs and letters

have been torn down or ignored by Corix installers, who have installed smart meters anyway; Q all those who now, after the deed is done, have phoned or sent letters and messages asking for reinstatement of a wired meter, only to be told that there aren’t any analogues “left;” Q all those who request the removal of a newly installed smart meter, only to be told that they have no choice in the matter; Q all those who, due to the lack of media attention or connectedness via Internet, have no idea that a choice exists. They simply accept what BC Hydro tells them: that they are doing what must be done. Hydro doesn’t tell us that wireless meters are not mandated in the Clean Energy Act. Wireless smart meters are radio frequency emitters, and it is not technically legal for Hydro to insist that anyone have a radio frequency emitter mounted on their home. Hydro’s public misinformation is part of their $13 million PR and advertising campaign. Don’t believe it. Linda Ewart

Goose control program cruel Recently in our local park, a couple with two blondecoloured dogs have been terrorizing the wildlife. They say they are licensed as part of the city’s “Goose Control Program.” Their dogs chase anything that moves. Since their appearance we have noticed an increase in ducks with broken legs or injured wings.

Recovery facility an ‘Animal House’ As a next-door neighbour of a facility in the 33000 block of George Ferguson Way, I am deeply disturbed and disgusted with the behaviour, noise, foul language at any time during day and night from this so-called recovery house. Whoever is in charge, if anybody at all, does not exert any form of discipline or civilized behaviour. It is absolutely undisciplined, out-of-hand chaos. “Animal house” would be a much more appropriate name. To finalize, there is in my opinion a solution to every problem, and I can guarantee you that this solution will come. Theo van der Boom

Is the plan of the program to cause pain and suffering to defenceless wildlife? Those dogs do not come when called, and intimidate smaller dogs who are on a leash as required. Do the owners pick up after them? Guess again! I feel the city should revisit this program – animal cruelty is not acceptable... period. K. Peeling

Funds will refurbish burned playground A fundraiser takes place tonight (Thursday) to raise funds for the replacement of school playground equipment damaged in an arson last month. The event takes place from 4 to 8 p.m. at Dr. Thomas A. Swift Elementary (34800 Mierau St.) and includes a barbecue meal by donation, a dunk tank, a bouncy castle, and games.

All proceeds go towards the $10,000 deductible that must be paid for the insurance claim that will cover the replacement costs of the equipment. Vandals set fire to the playground on July 15, destroying much of the equipment, which provided access to children in wheelchairs and with other physical challenges. Replacement and installation costs are

Audible Bird Scare Devices (ABSDs) (Propane Cannons) The Provincial Government regulates the use of ABSDs on agricultural land. The B.C. Blueberry Council handles noise concerns related to ABSDs. Nazam Dulat, the B.C. Blueberry Council’s Liaison OfÂżcer, can be reached by telephone at 778-549-0712. The City’s Good Neighbour Bylaw regulates noise; however, it does not apply to normal farm practices. The Provincial Farm Practices Protection (Right to Farm) Act provides farmers with protection from nuisance, and regulation by local government bylaw, when normal farm practices are followed. The use of audible bird scare devices (ABSDs), also known as “propane cannonsâ€?, is considered a normal farm practice when guidelines established by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Farm Practices Board are followed. You can view the Wildlife Damage Control guidelines and related information online at www.agf.gov. bc.ca/resmgmt/sf/farmpp/bird_devices.htm.

Free drive-in movie

Rotary, News team up to raise funds to fight polio Abbotsford residents have the opportunity to enjoy a free drive-in movie experience while helping a great cause. The Rotary Club of Abbotsford and the Abbotsford News are presenting a special Drive-In Movie experience on Aug. 24. All proceeds from this event will go to Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign. “It only takes 60 cents to save a child’s life by administering a polio vaccination. Six dollars will save the lives of 10 children,” said Andrew Franklin, president of the Rotary Club of Abbotsford. While polio has been eradicated in North America and many other countries, places like Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan are still battling the disease. Rotary’s goal is to end polio – forever. The campaign supports immunization in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

This movie night is a fundraiser to help Rotary achieve a polio-free world. “You will save lives that night,” said Franklin. The drive-in takes place on site at the Abbotsford News, 34375 Gladys Ave. A giant screen will be set up in front of the building and cars can park in the grassy

The fundraising evening is being presented by The News, the Rotary Club of Abbotsford, MSA Ford, Murray GM, Boston Pizza, the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre and Dignity Memorial. Reservations must be made as space is limited. General admission is free

with donations being accepted upon entry, or you can enjoy a limited number of premium parking spots for a $50 donation per vehicle (maximum of five occupants), including free popcorn. To book tickets, email drivein@abbynews.com. If you really want to support the cause to End Polio Now, then take part in an online auction for a Boston Pizza VIP Experience. The highest bidder will receive the best parking spot available for the movie, a Boston Pizza dinner from the take-out menu which will be delivered to the car, and popcorn. Again a maximum of five people are permitted in the vehicle. The auction is on now and runs until Aug. 14 at 5 p.m. Visit facebook.com/ myabbynews to bid. “We are hoping for a full crowd to come out, enjoy a fun evening of entertainment and help raise money for a great cause. This is just one way the Abbotsford News is celebrating its 90th anniversary in this outstanding community,” said Franklin. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., cars parked at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m.

Vibrant colours swirling through landscapes that drip with a surreal quality describe the newest show at the Kariton Art Gallery: “Out of the Ordinary.” Featuring photographers Sandra McMartin and Abbotsford’s Phil Dyer, the show is composed of a variety of otherwise ordinary, everyday objects that have been subjected to digital reinterpretation to offer a different view of the world. McMartin contributes to the theme with a photographic exploration based on reflections. “Reflected scenes draw me since they don’t always exactly mirror the subject. This medium may emphasize certain aspects of a scene and dismiss others completely. It is this altered reality that was my inspiration for this show,” she said. Although she has owned a camera for most of her adult life, McMartin has only been using one for artistic expression for the last three years. She has won awards in the Canadian Association of Photographic Art Print Competition and the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs Audio Visual Competition. Dyer’s photos involve simplifying a solitary

subject by reducing it to a basic line, shape and form, with the end product being a more stylized and contemporary representation of the environment. He employs bold colours and includes a solitary subject within the environment to act as a focal point in the image. “(The solitary subject) is a reminder of my own effort to meet and deal with challenges in my life. How often have we felt alone against the world wondering what the future holds for us?” said Dyer, who hopes observers will recognize this recurring theme in his work and possibly take the opportunity to reflect on challenges in their own lives. The challenges represented by Dyer’s pieces are widely varied, ranging from a lonely Great Lakes freighter facing an onset of a storm in “Energy” to an eagle searching for food in an environment taken over by humanity in “Into the Mist,” to a man making a living in the competitive world of music in “The Entertainer,” Dyer’s personal favourite. The exhibit runs from Aug. 17 to Sept. 11 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware St. For additional information, visit abbotsfordartscouncil.org.

Save the rain; save money Use nature’s way to water!

A great way to save water and money is to harvest rain to irrigate your lawn and garden. Rain barrels collect rain water from roofs, sheds or garages to be stored for use in the garden and larger rain harvesting collection systems can be customized for your garden. Rainbarrels kits can be purchased at the Abbotsford/Mission Recycling Depot or the Mission Works Yard. Call 604-850-3551or 604-820-3761 for more information.

Wheat in the Barley at Twilight Concert Wheat in the Barley performs at the Envision Twilight Concert Series at Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday, Aug.17 from 7 to 8 p.m. This is Canadian roots music with a major make-over. The Wheat in the Barley pulls together a lot of great influences into one package: Celtic, Slavic, French Canadian, Yiddish, Cajun and more. With an impressive array of instruments at their command, the band puts on a show that’s as danceable as it is listenable. “The Wheat in the Barley is an altogether superior ensemble,” said Gary Cristall, former Vancouver Folk Music Festival artistic director. Wheat in the Barley is group founder Steve Gidora on guitar; Victor Smith on accordion, whistles, guitar, or just about anything; Mark Dowding on woodwinds; Nicole Scoffield on violin; Mickey Hovan on guitar and bass; and Ed Johnson on percussion. The Art in the Park program continues with a variety of visual artists presenting their work each evening of Twilight. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for a fun evening at the park. The Blackberry Kitchen and The Log Cabin Café are open. Envision Twilight Concerts are a community, free-bydonation series. For more information call 604-826-0277.

Freshwater fishing is an increasingly popular pastime, and fishing gear is an important part of the angling experience. Not having fishing gear is no longer a barrier for those new to angling. Now, those curious about fishing or anglers keen to share their favourite fishing spots with friends are able to borrow the gear for free. The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC has expanded the Go Fish BC! Rod Loan Program to 16 locations throughout B.C. There are now 20 rods available to borrow at the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitor Centre in Abbotsford. “With the popularity of freshwater fishing growing, along with increasing awareness of the world-class calibre of freshwater fishing throughout British Columbia, there was a real call to expand the program,” said Jessica Borrows, rod loan program coordinator. “The pilot program had good usage and we hope this will improve with increased awareness that the rods are available.” To borrow a rod and tackle, visit Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitor Centre at 34345 Vye Rd. or call 604-5044716. Borrowers may present a credit card or leave a small deposit as insurance, which will be returned when the fishing gear is dropped off. Rods may be borrowed for up to a week.

Kitten season tough on adult cats in SPCA care â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want a kitten, not a cat.â&#x20AC;? Every day, BC SPCA branch managers hear this line as they are faced with countless numbers of people looking for kittens. At the same time, branches across the province are overwhelmed with nearly 1,000 adult cats awaiting homes. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the BC SPCA is highlighting the many benefits of adopting adult cats, during their annual summer influx of highly desired kittens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have so many wonderful cats who would make amazing companions in any loving home,â&#x20AC;? said Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the sad reality is that cats are often overlooked in favour of kittens, and this is especially true during kitten season.â&#x20AC;? In animal welfare

Jack is a three-year-old cat currently awaiting adoption at the BC SPCA Vancouver branch. Jack has been in BC SPCA care for nine months. organizations, â&#x20AC;&#x153;kitten seasonâ&#x20AC;? commonly refers to the huge increase of surrendered and abandoned kittens that begins in May and continues throughout the fall. While many kittens are quickly scooped up by adopters, adult cats experience a longer stay at shelters. The average kitten spends 31 days in care, while the average adult cat remains 77 per cent longer. Chortyk said the SPCA wants to remind people about the joys of adopting an adult

cat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many advantages to choosing a full-grown cat. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more settled, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re house trained and their personalities are fully developed, so you know exactly what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting.â&#x20AC;? Chortyk also says adult cats enjoy your companionship and affection, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t demand the level of supervision of their younger counterparts.

I had one young at heart, 87-year-old tell me that she’s lived in the area all her life and she and her husband have watched the transformation of our beautiful downtown core over the years. She says that they both have their favorite spots for having their hair done right here, and would never consider switching. Her husband pipes in that there are just not many places a man can find a real barber. Why would he switch? I have to agree; he has a point. Downtown Abbotsford has Jakes Barbershop, Hansen’s Barbershop and the Corner Barbershop; all three are “real man’s barbers”, as he put it. I ran into the members of CrossFit Abbotsford as they ran their way around the block as part of their daily WOD. Speaking from experience I can say that the atmosphere, enthusiasm, encouragement and fun that the many downtown gyms offer, brings 1000s of people of all ages and abilities to the area.

I also spoke to a mom with her three daughters and their two girlfriends. They were on an exploration of the downtown. The girls ranging in age from 7-10 were thrilled to receive a tour of Agape Bridal, experience bubble tea at Happy Hour Bubble Tea, and see the original drawings submitted by the art bench artists. They tell me their favorite is the “Three Men”. Let’s face it, Downtown Abbotsford was the caterpillar that has now morphed into the butterfly. Sure we spent a couple years in the cocoon, but look at us soar now! I heard so many great personal stories those days. I would love to invite everyone to like us on facebook (facebook.com/abbotsforddowntown) and add your story to the list. What brings you to Downtown Abbotsford? The boutiques, spas, specialty shops, gym facilities, cafes, restaurants, or is it something else. Let us know.

ven though it seems obvious to me what is so great about our Historic Downtown Abbotsford - the beautiful streets, great shopping, spas of all types, health and fitness options and some of the best restaurants in town - I wondered, “What is it that brings other people downtown?” I spent a few days strolling along our charming streets and asking some of the locals, visitors, regulars and first-timers what brings them to the downtown.

Dry, hot weather is tough on plants After five months of cooler, wetter weather than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen before, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about to experience some record hot temperatures. It looks as though the weather will be great for swimming in pools and lakes and for barbecues, and as nice as this may be, dry hot weather can be tough on our plants. Sudden heat and soaring temperatures create a demand for moisture that cannot always be met on short notice by the root systems of many plants. The result is burnt blossoms, damaged foliage and hard, stunted growth.

Fortunately, there are ways of minimizing the problems caused by a sudden hot spell. The most immediate relief for plants is a thorough, deep watering. It is best to do this early in the morning when the plants will make the greatest use of the water. Watering in the evening wastes water because plants simply transpire valuable moisture away. The other huge issue is where to water. Soaker hoses around the perimeter of all trees and shrubs is the most effective way to water. A little water is worse than no water. When you water,

saturate the soil deeply Brian where the roots are to keep them going downward instead of upward in an effort to capture what little moisture there is. The next most important task is to mulch many of your trees and shrubs with suitable material. You should be looking for something that is a good insulator, can eventually be worked into the soil and has an attractive appearance. Garden compost is fine if it is well broken down, but its appearance is not always the best,

Minter

Gardens especially when it dries out. Manures are also fine, but remember that they are slightly on the alkaline side and can cause problems with your acid-loving plants like rhododendrons and camellias. If you use manures, be sure they have been composted for at least six months. Grass clippings are quite suitable in the short run but once dried out, they tend to look rather shabby. My preferred choice

is always fir or hemlock bark mulch. Bark is a wonderful insulator; it looks great and makes a fine soil amendment. A covering of three to four inches around all your plant material will prevent a great deal of stress, especially for shallowrooted plants like rhododendrons. Hedging cedars are very shallow rooted

and will dry out quickly in a few days of intense heat, so use soaker hoses to alleviate this problem. A thorough watering is the most important stress-relieving factor for all the plants under the eaves of your home. Heat reflected off buildings can be a real challenge for plants, so please do not neglect both the sun and shade areas under the eaves. Here, too, I find

soaker hoses and drip systems are, by far, the most efficient and thorough method of watering. Remember, for all your veggies, annuals, perennial beds and containers, try to get in the habit of watering very thoroughly to make sure the roots and soil mass are moist down deep, not just on the surface. Water less frequently, but really soak the soil when you do water.

Olympic heartbreak for Schmidt, Team Canada

Dan KINVIG

SEPT 16 , 2012 - CULTUS LAKE

KAYAK

Abbotsford News

An inspired effort fell painfully short for Sophie Schmidt and the Canadian women’s soccer team, as they suffered a dramatic 4-3 extratime loss to the United States in the Olympic semifinals on Monday. Playing at Old Trafford, the home field of Manchester United known as the “Theatre of Dreams,” Canada pushed the heavily-favoured Americans to the limit. Superstar striker Christine Sinclair of Burnaby turned in a Hurculean performance, scoring a hat trick, and each of her goals staked Canada to a one-goal lead. Schmidt, a 24-year-old midfielder from Abbotsford making her 95th appearance for Canada, set up Sinclair’s third in the 73rd minute, launching a corner kick that Sinclair soared to head past U.S. keeper Hope Solo. But each time Sinclair scored, the U.S. battled back to equalize – twice on goals by Megan Rapinoe, and once on a penalty kick by Abby Wambach. Wambach’s goal, in the 80th minute, was the product of

Strong showing for Hadwin Abbotsford News file photo

Adam Hadwin was third at the Web.com Tour’s Cox Classic.

Abbotsford golfer Adam Hadwin turned in a terrific performance on the Web. com Tour on the weekend, finishing tied for third at the Cox Classic in Omaha, Nebraska. Hadwin, coming off a

missed cut at the RBC Canadian Open the previous week, was steady throughout, carding rounds of 68, 67, 63 and 66 to end up at 20 under par. That left him four strokes back of winner Ben Kohles, who shot a sparkling

final-round 62. Hadwin collected a season-high payday of $31,200, which boosted him from 62nd to 38th on the all-important Web.com Tour order of merit. The top 25 on the list at year’s end

earn PGA Tour cards for next season, and Hadwin is closing in on that standard. His next chance to make up ground is the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Missouri this weekend.

Heat star Wilson off to KHL Clay Wilson, the Abbotsford Heat’s team MVP last season, is headed to the Kontinental Hockey League. The 29-year-old defenceman signed a one-year deal last week with Donbass Donetsk, a KHL squad based in the Ukraine. Wilson had one year remaining on a two-year contract with the Calgary Flames, the Heat’s NHL parent club. The deal transitioned from a two-way NHL/AHL contract in 2011-12 to a one-way NHL deal in 2012-13. But with seven defencemen on the Flames’ roster with one-way contracts, not including promising youngster T.J. Brodie, Wilson’s chances of earning those dollars in the NHL appeared slim. Named to the AHL all-star game the last two years, Wilson had little left to prove at the lower level, and will try to burnish his resumé for future NHL employment in the KHL. Flames general manager Jay Feaster confirmed to the Calgary Sun that Wilson’s NHL contract has been voided. “He is no longer on our reserve list,” Feaster said. “We wish Clay and his family well as he pursues his career.” The Sturgeon Lake, Minn. native was a rock on the blueline for the Heat last season, racking up 43 points (16 goals, 27 assists) in 66 games while averaging nearly 30 minutes of ice time per game in the second half of the season. He also suited up for five games with the Flames, failing to register a point. Over his seven pro seasons, Wilson has played 36 NHL games for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Atlanta Thrashers, Florida Panthers and Flames, totaling four goals and four assists.

The Abbotsford Whalersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collective performance at the Fraser Valley regional championships was impressive in terms of both quantity and quality. The local swim club hosted the meet at Centennial Pool on the weekend, and finished with the most overall points at 6,007. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly shocking, since they had the most swimmers entered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Abbotsford had 121

athletes in attendance, while among other clubs, only the Haney Neptunes (76 swimmers) sent more than 32. But the Whalers also boasted the most points per swimmer at 49.6, edging Haney (49.1) and Langley (44.6) in that department as well. All told, 11 Abbotsford swimmers finished first overall in their respective divisions.

Affordability keeps sales steady

ales are steady in Fraser Valley real estate. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,393 sales on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in July, an increase of five per cent compared to the 1,322 sales during the same month last year, and five per cent fewer than the 1,463 sales in June. At the same time, the board posted 2,938 new listings on the MLS in July – on par with last year and just slightly more than the number received in June, resulting in July finishing with 10,813 active listings. “I keep trying to find another word other than stable, but it continues to be the best way to describe the Fraser Valley market,” said Scott Olson, president of the board. “While our inventory remains at above-average levels, our sales are sufficiently steady to keep prices consistent. “One factor in our favour and likely influencing our market is greater affordability. We sold 25 per cent more townhomes in July 2012 and 7 per cent more condos compared to the same month last year with over half of the townhomes selling for less than $325,000 and half of the condos for less than

$210,000.” The sale of single family detached homes in the Fraser Valley increased by only one per cent in July compared to last year. The area that experienced the greatest year-overyear decrease in sales – at 32 per cent – was South Surrey/White Rock where a typical single family detached home was valued at just under $880,000. “We are seeing a reduction in sales of higher-end homes. Last July was one of the busiest on record in that area, so the decrease appears sharper. South Surrey/White Rock would normally see about 100 detached homes sell in July and last month 86 sold, keeping the market competitive and prices resilient,” explained Olson. Across the Fraser Valley, the benchmark price of a single family detached house in July was $551,400, an increase of 3.4 per cent compared to $533,400 in July 2011. For townhouses, the benchmark price in July was $303,400, a decrease of 0.6 per cent compared to $305,200 during the same month last year. The benchmark price of apartments in Fraser Valley in July was $206,200, an increase of 2.5 per cent compared to $201,200 in July 2011.

Born and raised in Surrey, I moved to Abbotsford in 1985 and grew to love the community. My roots and commitments in the Fraser Valley became even stronger when I married Ingrid and we started a family. With over 20 years experience in sales and marketing, my next challenge was entering real estate. This career plunge, now several years ago, has brought me growth, relationships, and the career satisfaction of a job well done beyond my dreams. My relationships with my clients are of the utmost importance to me. I am committed to providing the care, understanding, service, and attention they deserve. Accountability, availability, opportunity, and results for my clients are the core of my business. I am a self-confessed “car guy” and have been racing, restoring, and appreciating all kinds of vehicles since the day I brought home my driver’s license. Over the years I noticed how difficult it can be to find the right property for “toys”, from cars to boats to recreational vehicles. I decided to dedicate part of my business to specializing in “Real Estate for Car Guys” and everyone looking for unique properties, garages and shops in the Fraser Valley.

The Abbotsford Angels celebrated a provincial AAA Tier 1 mosquito championship on the weekend.

Angels win big at provincials

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Angels were wellarmed heading into mosquito AAA Tier 1 provincials, and their firepower on the mound paved the way to a gold medal. In the mosquito (age 10-11) division, pitchers are on a strict pitch count, limited to 90 per week. So in a six-game provincial tournament, pitching depth is at a premium, even moreso than usual. “At the mosquito level, the more pitchers you have that can throw strikes and let your defence play defence, the better,” noted Angels coach Lance McDonald. “You’re pretty limited unless you have a lot of kids who can throw, and we used all 12 of our kids as pitchers.” That pitching prowess helped the Angels go a perfect 4-0 in the round robin, with John Boulanger, Brady Rempel, Dayton Peters and Carlin Dick earning game MVP awards. In the semifinals against Richmond, Abbotsford rallied from a 5-4 deficit to win 6-5, thanks to Kole Jessamine’s two-run double. In the title game, the

Angels blasted Victoria 10-2, with Dick picking up game MVP honours. The team team celebrated its second straight B.C. title – they also won at the single A level last season. They wrapped up the 2012 campaign with a 22-3-1 record. “They’re a bunch of young boys who aren’t selfish,” McDonald said. “They were willing to do whatever it took to get better and beat other teams.” Provincial championship weekend was a big one for Abbotsford Baseball, as five other local teams advanced at least as far as the B.C. semifinals. Four of those teams won silver medals. The mosquito A Angels went 5-0 in the round robin before losing 8-7 to Cloverdale in the final, while the mosquito AAA Tier 2 squad lost 10-0 to Ladner in their title game. The peewee AA’s lost 9-5 to the Kelowna Cubs in the gold medal game, while the bantam AAA team lost 6-5 to Vancouver Mounties in final. The Abbotsford bantam AA team bowed out in the semis, falling 8-2 to the eventual champion Chilliwack.

Joleen Seitz of Savona was the lone B.C. champ, as she won the barrel racing with a time of 15.084 seconds. Katie Garthwaite (15.106) and Gaylene Buff (15.153) were second and third, respectively.

UFV women’s hoopsters to host NCAA opponents The University of the Fraser Valley women's basketball team begins its preseason preparations with a pair of exhibition games against NCAA foes next week. The Cascades host the Ball State Cardinals on Monday at noon, and the Schreiner University Mountaineers on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Envision Athletic Centre. The Cardinals, who hail from Muncie, Ind., play in the NCAA Div. 1 Mid-American Conference. Ball State made some noise in the NCAA Tournament in 2009, upsetting Tennessee in the first round. They're coming off a 4-12 season in MAC play, but return their top two scorers in guard Brittany Carter and forward Jazmin Hitchens. The Mountaineers, based in Richardson, Tex., are an NCAA Div. III team which plays in the American Southwest Conference. Players to watch include forward Olivia Swarner, an honourabl e mention all-conference player last season, and guard Karisa Cantu, the reigning ASC West Division freshman of the year. Schreiner will be bringing an experienced squad to Abbotsford, having lost just one senior to graduation from its 2011-12 roster.

Olympics: Mason comes up just shy of podium From A29

and Pedersen pointed to the penalty spot. Wambach stepped up and converted. Schmidt had a chance to give Canada the lead in the 89th minute after generating a turnover

deep in American territory, but Solo got a hand on her sharpangle blast. Canada, ranked seventh in the FIFA world rankings, had not beaten the top-ranked Americans

since 2001, but they were mere seconds away from taking them to penalty kicks. But with less than a minute left in added time, Alex Morgan leaped to get on the end of a cross and head it over McLeod’s

outstretched arm. It was a heartbreaking end for Team Canada, whose gritty performance helped to author a game that will go down as a classic. They play France in the bronze medal

match Thursday (5 a.m. Pacific time, CTV). “They’ve come to see the flag rise,” Canadian coach John Herdman said. “They came here for that and the job is not finished. They’ll be disappointed tonight

because it won’t be gold or silver, but we’ll take a medal from this tournament.” Schmidt turned in a tough-minded performance that Don Cherry would have been proud of. During extra time,

Wambach’s cleat came down on her left ankle, and Schmidt limped to the sideline in obvious pain. But she returned to play the rest of the game.

OUTSTANDING SHOWING FOR HIGH JUMPER When Ziggy Szelagowicz turned on the TV on Tuesday morning and saw it was raining at London’s Olympic Stadium, he knew Mike Mason would be just fine. Szelagowicz, a power/strength coach with Abbotsford’s Valley Royals track and field club, put his longtime high-jump pupil through his paces outdoors at Rotary Stadium all winter long – regardless of the weather. “We were jumping outdoors with the snow coming down,” Szelagowicz said with a chuckle. “An hour or two before a workout, I’d shovel the runway. I wouldn’t allow him to do the physical work. I wanted to see him jumping. “I said, ‘Mike, London is a tricky place. If there’s rain or bad weather, you’ll know how you’re supposed to feel.’” Mason’s all-weather workouts very nearly paid off with an Olympic medal. He was one of six high jumpers to finish with a best height of 2.29 metres, but three of those athletes – Canada’s Derek Drouin, Qatar’s Mutaz Essa Barshim and Great Britain’s Robert Grabarz – cleared it on their first attempt. They shared the bronze medal, while Mason, who needed three tries to clear 2.29m, finished in eighth place. Mason had some good cracks at 2.33m, but he clipped the bar with his heels on two occasions. “His first two attempts (at 2.33m) were so close, unbelievably close,” Szelagowicz said of Mason. “It was an outstanding performance, with this rain and this weather.” The MasonSzelagowicz partnership dates back a decade, when the 15-year-old youngster began riding the ferry across from Nanoose Bay to train in Abbotsford. The two parted ways when the coach left for a four-year stint at Continued on A39

Helen Ruth Ross passed away peacefully in her 82nd year with her family at her bedside on July 25, 2012 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Helen was born in White Rock, B.C. on August 23, 1930 to John and Eva (Thomson) White. After Helen’s birth the family returned to Mt. Lehman and lived on Olund Road. After Eva’s death when Helen was just two years old John and his three young daughters moved back to the White family homestead on White Road (now Townline) where Helen’s grandparents Edmund and Elizabeth White helped raise the girls. Helen and older sister Bev also lived for a while with their Uncle Edmund and Aunt Annie White whose farm was part of the original homestead. Helen attended elementary school in Matsqui Village, was honoured to be crowned May Queen in Abbotsford in 1944 and graduated from Philip Sheffield High School in 1948. She married her high school sweetheart Robert Ross in 1949 and they built a new house on Marshall Road. This would be their home for more than 60 years. Helen was a wonderful mother to six children and a loving and devoted wife. She is survived and sadly missed by her husband of 62 years Bob Ross, daughters Marilyn (Harvey) Goodwin, Elaine (Hans) Visser, Donna (Robert) Simpson, Shirley (Ken) Jansen and son Darrell (Ruth) Ross. Helen will also be missed by her grandchildren Michelle (Mike) Appeldoorn, Mark (Kara) Goodwin, Denise (Brad) Blades, Tiffany (Ryan) Biela, Wendy Dombrowski, Sheldon (Michelle) Visser, Darren (Amanda) Simpson, Kirk (Sheena) Jansen, Ryan and Clayton Ross and great grandchildren Kurtis, Tyson, Krystal and Allison Appeldoorn, Wyatt Goodwin, Brayden and Cole Blades, Keegan and Lin-

ley Biela, Shaelee and Chase Dombrowski, Blake Simpson, Preston and Alianna Jansen. Helen is also survived by her sister Bev (Phil) Evans, nephews Greg (Hope) Johnson, Jeff (Linda) Johnson, niece Diane (Pat) Miki, nephew Jack (Lynda) Thompson, sister-in-law June Ross and many nieces, nephews and extended family in the Ross, Thompson, Masse, Gibb, Thomson and Chevalley families. Helen was predeceased by her eldest child Dennis Ross in 2011, sister and brother-in-law June and Dave Thompson, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Sonny Johnson, Walter and Fae Ross, Delores and Al Masse and Wayne Ross. Mom devoted her life to the care of her family and her home. Her children will remember coming home after school to fresh baked cookies and brownies. She passed on her talents for knitting and sewing and was always available to help out with babysitting as the grandchildren came along. Helen enjoyed summer vacations at the ocean in Birch Bay, as well as camping and motorhome trips. Helen was a long time member of the Canadian Order of Foresters and enjoyed the friendships she made in the group. Helen’s grandparents, the Whites, McCallums, and Thomsons were early pioneers in the Mt. Lehman area and she became interested in genealogy when putting together family histories for some locally written books. The family would like to thank the paramedics, doctors and staff at Abbotsford Regional Hospital for the wonderful care our mother received. We are especially thankful to the nurses on Baker 3W Surgical and Baker 2W Medical wards for the extra care and compassion shown to the family during this difficult time. A celebration of Helen’s life will be held on Sunday, August 12th, 2-4 P.M. at The Rancho, 35110 Delair Road, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Huntington Society of Canada, 151 Frederick Street, Suite 400, Kitchener, Ontario, N2H 2M2.
