Ledgeview finances are in the rough Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Ledgeview Golf Course is likely facing major changes in the coming months, as members meet on Sept. 11 to decide how to deal with the facility’s significant financial issues. The society which runs Ledgeview recently requested relief funding from council, and it has been suggested the organization may not have the financial capacity to continue operating the golf course on McKee Road. Pat Differ, president of the Ledgeview Golf Society, declined an opportunity to speak on the issue, saying he wanted to respect the process. However, asked if a notification went out to members regarding the possible closure of Ledgeview, Differ replied “Well, yeah, that’s happened, and we are working through that right now.” “At this point it’s premature to say anything,” he said. Longtime Ledgeview member, former board member and past president, Dave Holmberg, told The News that Ledgeview will not cease operations. “Closure of the golf course will never happen,” he said. He said the current society that operates the golf course is in a financial bind and didn’t get “substantial support” from the city. “It’s impossible for them to continue,” he said. “It’s not a closure. It’s to talk about the fact that the current operation of the current society does not have enough financial support to continue. “And the smart thing you do is, you do it in a manner that is responsible Continued on A4

Seeds of Hope founder honoured Susan Chalkias receives Queen’s medal for her efforts to help orphans

The founder of an Abbotsford-based international rescue mission has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal. Susan Chalkias is one of the founders of the group that is now known as Seeds of Hope, which runs an orphanage, school and a food centre in Zambia and another orphanage in Southeast Asia. Chalkias discovered that thousands of babies are being born with antibodies for HIV, meaning that they either have the infection or have parents that were infected. They are usually orphaned within a few months, or die of the disease themselves. But Chalkias, and her husband John, have found that compassionate care, strong prayer and good nutrition can be combined with powerful medication to give these youngsters a chance at a productive life and a quality education. She began her work 15 years ago when she and a friend decided to raise funds by baking pies and collecting bottles in Mission. Her group of moms in Mission raised $23,000 to help establish the Agape Home in northern Thailand. In 2000, she and her husband saw a need in Africa, so refocused their ef-

forts on Zambia. With the support of Cedar Valley Mennonite Church and Northside Church they have estab-

lished the Buseka Home and Grace Academy, a boarding school for 120 children. They also run three feeding

programs. “We received more than $100,000 through the Rotary Clubs in Mission,” said Chalkias. “Saving the kids is the best thing about this. Thin, broken, emaciated and dying children are brought to us and within a year many of them are healthy and thriving.” Some of the first children to be helped by Seeds of Hope are now graduating from high school and are planning further education to become doctors and professionals. When Chalkias heard she won the medal, she was honoured, but quickly credited others. “I really believe that I accepted it on behalf of hundreds of people. So I share it with a lot of people. I actually have the certificate from the Governor General up in the office, not at home.” But receiving the medal still holds special meaning for her. “My parents are British, so it meant even more,” she said. Her father flew out for the ceremony, which took place on Canada Day in Vancouver. Chalkias has been working with the organization for 16 years and plans to continue for the foreseeable future.

and not wait until the big axe comes down. You do it right.” Holmberg added, “it’s almost like a here’s-the-keys kind of thing.” He said golf courses make profit during the four to five months of spring and summer. “One of those months is June and it rained almost every day in June, and the weather was never supportive of golf activity.” He said that resulted in more HOLMBERG than $100,000 in profits lost, adding the lack of council support and negative comments in the media have hampered the group even further. But he is confident that the city will step in. “The city will have to look at it as a major asset to this com-

munity,” he said, pointing out the facility helps raise upwards of $500,000 for local charities, which hold fundraisers and other events at the course. Holmberg said that in the past few years, the golf industry in B.C. and North America has struggled. If the society does give operational control of Ledgeview back to the city, it is not clear if city hall will be willing to run the course. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said there was little the city could do until the society holds its meeting. “They have to figure out what they’re doing. The city’s sitting here waiting for them to make a decision as to what they want to do,” he said. In January, the Ledgeview Golf Society went before council seeking $250,000 in financial support. It was the first time the group had approached the city for help. At the time, Differ told council

the golf course was “experiencing some difficulties with respect to the decline in the economy and the decline in the golf business.” After running the course successfully for the past 30 years, the club lost $112,000 in 2010, $240,000 in 2011 and was expecting to lose $150,000 this year. The group was created in 1978 to run the city-owned public golf facility. In May, the city granted Ledgeview $115,000, including $65,000 in rent forgiveness and $50,000 toward capital improvements. The city has already been exploring options for the facility. In June, staff issued a Request For Expressions of Interest in the city-owned golf course. The document states a private operator may be chosen to take over the course on a long-term lease. Developers are also invited to put forward ideas on how to improve JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News the 2.5-acre clubhouse lands.

Crown wants eight years for pair of cocaine couriers Abbotsford News

The Crown is asking for eight years prison time for two Abbotsford men who were found in a berry field near four cocaine-filled bags in 2009. A sentencing hearing for Randeep Match, 30, and Manindervir ‘Manny’ Virk, 24, was held in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack on Monday, for possession for the purpose of trafficking. They were found guilty in November of last year. In September 2009 they were spotted in a farm field near Mt. Lehman Road and Zero Avenue by the Air One police helicopter using night vision. Officers and a police dog recovered two duffel bags and two backpacks loaded with 40 bricks of cocaine, valued at between $1.4 million and $2 million. Match and Virk were found hiding in bushes nearby, while a third person got away.

PHOTO Abbotsford News

Police officers arrest one of two men found near bags of cocaine in a farm field near Mt. Lehman Road and Zero Avenue in September 2009. The pair now awaits sentencing.

Crown counsel Sharon Steele also asked for a lifetime weapons ban for Virk, who has three assault convictions, and a 10-year weapons ban for Match, who had no prior convictions. Typically, drug couriers who cross the border with multiple kilograms of cocaine – often drivers of tractor-trailers – receive sentences of

eight to 12 years. She suggested the bottom of this range would be appropriate, since they were not convicted of importation. Steel said theirs is a crime motivated by greed, which is planned and deliberate – not “spur of the moment.” She said the drug trade would not exist without carriers, and the law recognizes this in their sentences.

Virk’s lawyer J.R. Rey countered that four to six years would be an appropriate sentence range, because the men were not convicted of importing, but trafficking. He noted that the co-accused were originally charged with importation, but Crown chose to proceed with possession for the purpose of trafficking. Virk would

be given one year of credit for six months spent in remand – his time in custody was spent prior to passing the Truth in Sentencing Act, and counts as double time served. Rey characterized eight years as “a crushing sentence.” He said Virk is “remorseful of his involvement, and ready to embark upon his sentence.” Match’s layer, Ian Donaldson, noted his client is a father of two and a husband. He is worried about how his family will fare without him. He has had a lifetime of employment and no prior criminal involvement. He said Match has no apparent links to the drug/ gang world. Donaldson opened the hearing by arguing his client’s case should be re-opened, because Match did not testify in his defence, and did not understand that he would not be able to testify at an appeal under rules of Continued on A7

Cellphone talking or texting third top crash cause

Black Press

ICBC and police are revving up their campaign against distracted driving, saying it’s now the third leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C. Enforcement is being stepped up for the Labour Day weekend and officers will be checking for distracted drivers throughout September. The crackdown came as a new Ipsos Reid poll was released showing 40 per cent of cellphone owners admit they’ve recently used their hand-held phone while driving despite overwhelming acceptance distracted driving is risky, especially

texting. “The ability to connect with anyone at any time through our mobile phones has led to a serious problem on our roads,” Justice Minister Shirley Bond said. Police say many drivers try to hide their mobile devices from view by using them from their laps but officers will use a variety of tactics to bust them and hand out $167 fines. The poll shows cellphone use behind the wheel in the past six months is much higher among younger B.C. drivers – 52 per cent of 18- to 25-year-olds, 48 per cent of 26- to 50-year-olds, 29 per cent of 51- to 65-year-olds and 17 per cent of seniors.

A quarter of all fatal crashes in B.C. are linked to distracted driving – about 94 deaths per year – making it the third top cause after speeding and impaired driving. ICBC also cited U.S. findings that drivers who talk on hand-held cellphones are four times more likely to crash, and 23 times more likely to crash if texting. Free downloadable ringtones designed to encourage drivers to resist the urge to answer the phone are being offered by ICBC. The tunes (available at icbc.com/drivesmart) span various genres and include “Road of No Replies,” “Missed Call Master” and “Let it Ring, Baby.”

evidence. What’s more, Match believed Virk would testify, and that his co-accused’s testimony would clear him. Virk also did not take the stand. Match maintains his innocence, saying he did not know about the cocaine, but when the group was pursued by police he panicked and ran. Donaldson said he was a latecomer to the case, only representing Match at the pre-sentencing stage. When he heard Match’s story he was “deeply concerned.” He said Match is an unsophisticated man, who followed the advice of his prior lawyer. Donaldson acknowledged that asking for the case to be re-opened at the sentencing stage was highly unusual, and not something he had done before. But he noted it is possible in law, in exceptional circumstances. Justice Brian Joyce said he has never heard of a case being re-opened at this stage – the accused would “have a second kick at the can.” Steele called the decision not to testify a “tactical decision” and a “strategic choice,” recommended by Match’s trial lawyer. Joyce dismissed the application, and said written reasons will follow. He will sentence the pair on Sept. 5 in Chilliwack.

Archaic blasts from the past Re: Story, “Blueberry cannon regulations adequate: BCBC.” The whole problem of blueberry cannons is such a no-brainer. Such a blatantly outrageous practice really should not even be a topic for argument. Like what part of not wanting to be blasted by a cannon every three to five minutes all summer don’t the blueberry farmers understand?

The whole practice is so absurd it is hard to believe it was even allowed in the first place. I mean, how can there be laws against barking dogs and booming stereos, but at the same time it’s perfectly okay to blast the smithereens out of the entire neighbourhood with a stupid cannon all summer long? Perhaps if the cannons actually worked

Truth from ICBC

Re: ICBC review Here we have a shocking example of the Peter Principle. In reading the analysis of the grossly overinflated management structure and the salaries, bonuses and other perks being paid to senior managers of this Crown corporation, the question arises as to the seeming lack of accountability exercised by the minister responsible. No wonder that our car insurance rates are rising. Once this mismanagement mess is cleared up, perhaps some of the funds can be directed to lowering our rates. The taxpayers deserve a full investigation and some truthful explanations. Don Stevenson

there might be the slimmest argument for their use, but from our vantage point, completely surrounded by blueberry fields, we see fewer starlings in the fields with no cannons. It’s almost as though the cannons were an attractant to starlings rather than a deterrent. In our area, cannon use was previously extremely loud and prevalent. Now, however, it appears

as though the neighbouring blueberry farmers have realized that the cannons are really not necessary and have reduced their usage dramatically. Some don’t use them at all and never did. They all seem to be very successful farms. I can only hope that sanity will soon prevail and we will look back in disbelief at these archaic blasts from the past. B. and I. Lee

Ha nds - IPL a nd F illers Question:

I have noticed that as I have aged, my hands are looking thin and bony and are covered brown spots. What can I do to feel more confident using my hands? – Sheila W., Mission

Answer:

When it comes to revealing ones true age, the hands speak volumes. Most of us pay close attention to our faces in the terms of sun protection and skin care. In general the hands are an area that we tend to neglect. We have two wonderful procedures to give you confidence and more youthful hands. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) does wonders to rid the hands of brown pigmentation. Within 2 to 3 sessions patients will notice a remarkable improvement. The fat in the hands begins to degenerate with age. Couple that with sun damage and collagen loss the skin thins out and you have more visible bones and veins. Fillers are then used to plump up the hands. Patients have instant gratification that is long lasting. Fillers can also provide continued improvement due to their ability to stimulate collagen. A good hand cream and sunblock will help to maintain the great results! – Dr. Marianna Snyman

A B.C. artist has created a new work depicting life in Abbotsford 90 years ago. E n t i t l e d Abbotsford 1922, the piece by Brian Croft will be presented to the Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford on Sept. 8, in conjunction with the Abbotsford News’ 90th anniversary celebration gala. “This is about telling the story of the community,” said Croft, a Langley resident. He began painting 16 years ago, creating the usual still lifes and flowers. “I realized I liked the old buildings. I started painting all the heritage buildings in Langley,” he

He returned to his original stomping grounds and began creating at least one work a year. He has created historic visions of Cloverdale and Chilliwack and has

finally turned his talents to Abbotsford. “The town has changed so much in the last 80 years. It took some time to get my mind around it.” With help from Kris Foulds, collections manager at The Reach, Croft searched through all of the Abbotsford archives to get as realistic a view of the area a n d t h e time period as CROFT possible. His research uncovered three photos taken from a hill at the east end of Essendene. From those pictures he managed to create most of his work. “I knew that was the painting,” he said. The photo helped Croft locate the buildings, telephone poles and railway tracks in the correct locations. However more research is needed to complete small details including building styles, clothing and other historically correct touches. The gala, celebrating the Abbotsford News 90th anniversary is set for Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. For information visit thereach.ca.

Strange fish in Fraser River not invasive carp species

Access our MOBILE Edition now at

m.abbynews.com

Found in some B.C. lakes, but river presence unusual Jeff Nagel Black Press

Unusual fish caught in the Fraser River near Lillooet and Lytton are common carp, not the highly invasive Asian silver carp that have infested some U.S. river systems. An alert circulated last week by area First Nations warned Asian carp had been found in the river, but the Department of Fisheries and Oceans said Monday all the fish caught so far are European or common carp. They’ve lived in some Interior lakes for decades, but it’s rare to see them in the mainstem Fraser. Aboriginal fishermen near Lillooet netted several carp recently. Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr said he’d be concerned for the Fraser’s salmon stocks if Asian silver carp had arrived in the river. “They’re an extremely invasive and destructive species,” he said. According to DFO,

Carp caught in the Fraser River near Lytton are not invasive Asian silver carp.

Asian silver carp compete for food with local fish, prey

on their larvae and cause serious habitat damage.

They’re also known for jumping out of the water – often right into motor boats –  and can pose a hazard to boaters and water skiers. There’s a concerted effort underway in Ontario to keep invasive carp from the U.S. out of Canadian waters. B.C. banned the possession or sale of Asian carp in 2010. They were originally imported to the U.S. for use in fish farms but soon escaped to the wild.

Transition to high school success Tips to navigating through middle school challenges

WIN

For Abbotsford-area students who said goodbye to elementary school earlier this year, this fall represents a critical transition to high school. High school means new beginnings, experiences and challenges. And while these changes – new friends, teachers and school environment – can be exciting, they also can be a bit unnerving. “The transition can be exhilarating and full of promise, but it also can cause some measure of anxiety,” said Richard E. Bavaria, Ph.D., senior vice-president of education outreach for Sylvan Learning. “During this single year, a new high school student must assimilate, make new friends, set goals, establish habits and attitudes, select courses, discover talents and interests, learn new skills, and begin to build confidence in this new environment. Making sure a child handles this year well should be an important goal for parents.” Here are some of the most

daunting changes local students will encounter during this first year of high school, and some tips on how to work through them.

New environment

The locker scare: One of the biggest concerns incoming high school students have is the locker. Instead of lugging their stuff around in one bag, students now have a place to store everything safely. The best part about the locker is being able to personalize it with photos, drawings, magazine clippings, and anything else that makes it feel comfortable. Ease locker fears by purchasing a combination lock and practice before school starts. New school: If your student has to go to a new school, it may seem overwhelming at first. Explore the school’s website with your child, or better yet – explore the new school. The better your child understands the school layout and rules, the easier the first day will be. Many schools have

tours and orientation days. New schedule: With different classes in different rooms on different days, high school schedules can seem confusing during the first few weeks. A few weeks before school begins, check with your school to see when schedules are ready so that your child can have some time to get comfortable with the new routine. Encourage him to ask a teacher or other school staff for help.

New academic tools

Time management: Work together on a schedule and develop an organizational system with your student. Acknowledge and make allowances for anxiety. At first, your student may need to carry everything for all classes all the time in order to feel prepared. Skills preparation: Summarizing, paraphrasing, and identifying main or important ideas and details are three skills that are essential. After reading a book or Continued on A22

With high school come new issues and solutions

From A20

watching a show, have kids orally summarize what happened, or have them recount the most important events. Note-taking: The workload and pace really pick up in high school, so note-taking is going to be critical. Start encouraging your child to develop a method of shorthand.

Writing grocery lists and directions are simple ways for kids to practice. Show them your own writing shortcuts. Note-taking is not automatic; the more examples kids see, the quicker they’ll acquire the skill.

Social concerns

New friends: One crucial area of worry for high school stu-

dents is the social scene. You can help ease their trepidation by opening lines of communication and providing a sympathetic ear. Kids’ worries and concerns about fitting in and making friends may seem trivial to adults, but for kids, these worries often trump academics. Listen to their concerns and advise them on basic so-

cial skills. Encourage them to join group conversations. Discuss how to join in without interrupting, to add something relevant to conversation. Socializing online: Online use of social media will ramp up during high school. The average teenager sends over 3,000 text messages a month. Make sure your kids understand

what they say and do online may come back to hurt them – or hurt others. Set guidelines for use of social media. Make sure you are able to regularly monitor your child’s access to text messaging and social media sites like Facebook. Increased awareness allows parents to step in and talk to their children before issues spiral out of control.

UFV course explores violence potential in youth

The relationship between violence and youth is an issue that became even more poignant with the theatre shooting in Aurora earlier this year. What could have

been done differently? What could have stopped it? What can stop this from happening in the future? These are all questions that will be discussed and debated in a new Continuing

rence,” noted Peter van den Hoogen, one of the course instructors. “Instead, this course will help participants view individuals from a lifespan approach, and identify factors that may lead individuals to act aggressively.” The course will be taught by van den Hoogen (M. Ed.) and Sue Dorey (M.S.W.), both of whom work in a large Lower Mainland School District. The course format will involve placing students in cohorts to tackle the modules as a team. Polished teamwork skills will be important for anyone who will need to recognize violent tendencies in youth, van den Hoogen noted. The course will be held on the Abbotsford Campus, and runs Sept. 12 to Dec. 5 on Wednesday evenings. For information visit http://www. ufv.ca/Continuing_ Studies.htm or email Annette.Vogt@ ufv.ca.

The W.J. Mouat Hawks’ big bruisers on the line throw their shoulders into the blocking sled during a training camp practice on Tuesday.

DAN KINVIG PHOTOS Abbotsford News

Are you ready for some football? Abbotsford’s high school teams certainly are, and with the season set to kick off this week, The News embarked on a training camp tour

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The sight of high school football players flying around the field is one of the rites of the season, indicating that summer is on its way out and fall is fast approaching. To mark that transition, The News checked in on each of Abbotsford’s four senior teams during training camp. * * * It’s somewhat disorienting to attend a W.J. Mouat Hawks practice and notice that Gary Naylor isn’t around. Naylor joined the Hawks as defensive coordinator in 1992, and spent 20 years as Denis Kelly’s right-hand man. It was no coincidence that the Hawks became one of B.C.’s elite programs during his tenure, winning AAA titles in 1992, 2002 and 2005. But Naylor, a former University of Manitoba head coach, has retired from the high school football grind – for the most part. “He’s still going to help us do some scouting and spotting at games, but he’s not here on the field,” said Kelly, the Hawks’ longtime bench boss. “That’s a big change for us. He was quite an outstanding coach.” Filling Naylor’s shoes is Jon McCarthy, former head coach of the Mouat junior team. “I know Jon very well because he played for us here before moving on to play at Simon Fraser,” Kelly noted. “He’s a very technically minded guy who’s got a lot to pass on to the kids.” McCarthy has plenty of talent to work with on the defensive side of the ball. Linebacker Taylor Hinton was an all-conference selection last year, and the defensive line – Sheriden Lawley, Nick Westad, Levi Hua and Stephen Munga – could be dominant. On offence, the Hawks boast plenty of skill-

Abbotsford Senior Panthers head coach Jay Fujimura and quarterback Carter Williams prepare to unleash passes during a drill. position talent, including quarterback Mario Narte and tailback Maleek Irons. Kelly believes wideout Brandovn Barratt might be the best receiver in the province, but he broke his leg in the summer and will miss the first couple weeks. Mouat lost to Mount Douglas in the B.C. title game in 2011, and Kelly believes they have the horses to make another deep run this year. The Hawks open the season with a trip

to Eugene, Oregon that’s sure to be memorable. They play Elmira High School in an exhibition game Friday, then watch Mouat alum Boseko Lokombo and the University of Oregon Ducks take on Arkansas State on Saturday before returning home. * * * Abbotsford Senior Secondary (formerly Abby Collegiate) has been renamed and rebuilt, and in similar fashion, the Panthers football team is also undergoing a renova-

tion. Last year’s team was special to head coach Jay Fujimura – the seniors were the first group to spend all four years with him since he took over the program in 2008. They accomplished some special things, qualifying for the playoffs and making it as far as the provincial AA quarter-finals. Three Panthers went on to earn university scholarships –  linebacker Tanner Storoshenko is with the Ottawa GeeGees, while receivers Jesse Neufeld and Dallas Yassinsky are members of the UBC Thunderbirds. “Our core group has graduated,” Fujimura noted, “but that being said, we’re not starting completely fresh. “I think we aim for the same thing we did last year. This team, if they put their work in, could be just as successful.” Fujimura’s reasons for optimism begin with quarterback Carter Williams, a returning starter. He’s throwing to a solid receiving corps led by Cody Lawlor and twin brothers Mitchell and Cody Follett. Caleb Andres is a star on the offensive and defensive lines. The Panthers open on Sept. 7 on the road against the New Westminster Hyacks. * * * The Robert Bateman Timberwolves were awfully impressive in their first season as a full-fledged AA program in 2011, qualifying for the playoffs. If their non-conference scheduling choices are any indication, they’re intent on taking the next step by sharping themselves against tough competition. The T-Wolves open on Friday (7 p.m. kickoff) on the road against the Lynden Lions, the defending Washington AA state champs. The following Friday, they face local powerhouse Continued on A38

World Cup in September

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

For the Abbotsford BMX Club, it’s hard to fathom how massive the next month will be. This weekend, the track at Exhibition Park will play host to the Canadian BMX Championships, an event would mark the peak of the local season any other year. But it’s the UCI World Cup two weeks later (Sept. 14-15) which represents the true highlight. That event is expected to feature male and female riders from more than 30 countries – many of whom will have competed at the London Summer Olympics. “It’s kind of amazing to think that a national championship is almost anticlimactic,” Abbotsford BMX president Steve Baxter marveled with a chuckle. “We’re a little overwhelmed, I think, but we have a lot of good help and support. The city has been fantastic, the parks department

has been amazing, and the support from Cycling BC is really driving things ahead and put us where we are as far as the facility goes.” For this weekend’s national championship, the field will feature roughly 250 athletes from across Canada. Registration and practice are on Thursday, and the competition runs Friday through Sunday. For detailed schedule information, visit cyclingbc. net. “Because it’s shouldering off of the World Cup, it’s going to be a great event,” Baxter noted. “We’ve already got trailers on-site for the World Cup, and we’ll have that available to make the Canadian championships that much better. “We already had the biggest practice of our season (on Monday). There was one kid from California practicing for the World Cup, and there were athletes from Quebec and Alberta here already for nationals.”

Hockey marathon hits Centre Ice Forty years after he scored the most famous goal in Canadian hockey history, Paul Henderson’s name still resonates. Consider that the No. 19 jersey he was wearing when he scored the gamewinner in the 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union sold for $1.275 million at auction – the most expensive hockey jersey ever, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Henderson lends his name to an Abbotsford-based fundraiser known as the Hockey Marathon of Hope, and the seventh edition of the event runs on Sept. 8. While organizers Dave Currie and Geoff Lee aren’t under any illusions that they’ll generate the kind of funds Henderson’s jersey auction did, they believe the sport of hockey offers a unique opportunity. “It feels like a natural fundraiser for Canadians,” Currie said. “You think about playing 10 hours straight, and it’s pretty fun for hockey nuts. And we’re excited about helping a lot of people in the process.” Henderson has attended three of the previous Hockey Marathons of Hope in person, though he won’t be able to do so this year due to his ongoing battle with non-Hodgkin’s lym-

phoma. “His cancer limits his schedule,” Currie noted. “He’s pretty positive about how he faces it. Every day is a day of grace, he says. “We’ll likely do an interview over the phone which we’ll record, and he’ll give a word to the guys via audio. He’s sent us books of his life story and DVDs of the ’72 series to give to the guys.” The event takes over the Centre Ice twin rinks facility, and players are divided into four teams for the marathon. “Throughout the whole day, you’re treated like a professional athlete,” Lee said. “For guys who haven’t played much high-level hockey, it’s a fun atmosphere.” Each participant commits to raising at least $1,000, which goes to Doing Family Right, a Christian ministry to strengthen families, and the Imani Orphan Care Foundation, which runs two facilities in Kenya housing over 250 children. “I like to call it a balanced portfolio,” Currie said. “We’re helping at home, and we’re also helping overseas.” There is still room for more players. For more information or to register, contact Lee (778-552-3489 or geoff@imaniorphancare.com) or Currie (604-309-6426 or drdave@doingfamilyright.com).

Danny Grainger of Abbotsford fires a backhand in his opening-round doubles match with partner John Bowes at the 2012 BC Seniors Games in Burnaby. The Abby duo would go on to win a silver medal in the men’s 70-74 age bracket.

Cheng leads charge for Whalers at provincials The Abbotsford Whalers turned in a series of sparkling results at the B.C. Summer Swim Championships in Nanaimo last week. Iris Cheng was the local club’s top performer, winning four individual medals in Division 8 – gold in the 50metre free, 50m fly and 100m fly, and silver in the 100m free. She also set two new provincial championship records (50 free and 50 fly). The Berard sisters, Nadia

and Laura, also won multiple gold medals. Nadia took first place in the Div. 7 100m free and 100m breast, while Laura claimed gold in the Div. 4 100m back and 50m fly, and silver in the 200m IM. Other swimming medalists from the local club included Alycia Connorton (Div. 8 girls, silver in 200m IM, bronze in 100m breast), Emily Aikema (Div. 5 girls, bronze in 200m IM and 100m fly), Kyle Becker (Div. 7 boys, bronze in

100m breast), Paige Bennett (Div. 4 girls, bronze in 100m back), Karl Halquist (O Cat 2 boys, bronze in 200m IM) and Lauren Jones (Div. 7 girls, bronze in 100m breast). The Whalers’ U14 and U16 water polo teams both brought home silver medals, falling in their respective finals to the Burnaby Barracudas. All told, the Abbotsford club finished fourth out of 62 teams at provincials, amassing 1,496 combined points.

Kent Hicks is among B.C.’s top players at his position. * * * Nothing warms Rick Hansen Hurricanes coach Paul Gill’s heart like seeing alumni come back and contribute to the program. Among the former ‘Canes pitching in this season is Greg Bowcott, one of the top quarterbacks in team history. The former SFU pivot now plays with the Langley Rams of the B.C. Football Conference, and he’s mentoring Hansen’s current starter, Alex Ho, in his spare time. “He’s coming out whenever he can, between work and playing for the Rams,” Gill said of Bowcott. “Alex has gotten some good tutelage from Greg. “It’s nice to see kids coming back and helping – it’s key to

Mouat for the first time ever (7:30 p.m., Mouat Field). “The experience in itself is going to be an eye-opener, I feel,” said Alfred Brathwaite, Bateman’s line coach last season who is stepping into the head coach role this year. “The players feel like they have a great chance (to win). Everybody should feel that way. If they don’t, they shouldn’t be playing football. They have to get their mindsets straight.” Tanner Friesen is Bateman’s QB, and he’ll have a pair of talented backs to hand off to in John Beckerleg and Ben Cummings. Cummings is coming off a huge Grade 10 season, leading the B.C. junior circuit with 1,614 rushing yards and 29 TDs. Defensive lineman/tight end

keeping programs going.” Ho was set to be Hansen’s starter last season as a Grade 10, but be broke his leg early in the campaign. He made a quick recovery, though, and returned in the playoffs to help the Hurricanes to the AA quarter-finals. “He’s healthy and looking real good, and we’ve got some good receivers for him to throw to,” Gill said. “You look at us offensively, and I think we’ll put a lot of points on the board.” Gill is particularly excited about returning four starters on the offensive line – Harjot Ghuman, Arsh Gill, Kenny Gill and Sukh Johal. Linebackers Brandon Ho (the QB’s brother) and Lucas Schwab lead the defence. Hansen’s first game is Sept. 8 on the road against North Vancouver’s Handsworth Royals.

And when old times we do recall, It’s then we miss you most of all. Love lives on forever In each memory and thought, Of the special man who meant so much And the strengths he brought.

Question: Is there any difference between independent living and assisted living? Answer: Yes. Independent living is for healthy elders who only need a minimal amount of support. Assisted living is for people who have been assessed by Fraser Health and require help with daily needs, such as taking medications, bathing or walking.

William Alfred Franklin (Bill)

Dr. Everhardus Jan (John) Buirs September, 1925 - June, 2012 We would like to announce that the celebration of life for John Buirs, on September 22, will not take place and would like to thank everyone who send cards and expressed condolences. The following poem is, we believe, how he would like to be remembered. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. - by M.E. Frye. From

Michael, Brian, Rob and Margaret Hug your children, your grandchildren and your parents in memory of E. John Buirs.

PFISTER Bertha (nee Cullum) May 17, 1916 ~ Aug. 13, 2012

Passed away peacefully in her sleep. Bertha was a long time resident of Vancouver, settling in Abbotsford in 1989. She is survived by her daughter Katherine (Barry) Smeeth, grandchildren, Nathan, Joel, Thomas (Alison) and James Newington, great grandchildren Simon Newington and Sherry Newington. Predeceased by her husband Edmund in 1987 and son-in-law Irvin “Sonny” Newington in 1990. Bertha loved her family dearly and will be greatly missed. She is safe in the arms of the Lord.

Cecelia Kathryn

Feb. 23, 1919 - Aug. 25, 2012

It is with great sorrow and appreciation for a life well lived that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Gwen. She passed away on August 25, 2012 surrounded in love by members of her family. Born to William and Ethel Jones in Port Coquitlam, BC. Gwen is predeceased by her parents, her siblings Guy, Charlie, Howard, John and Lorrie, her half-siblings Stanley, Joan, Griff, David, Bessie, Edith, and Arthur and her son Karl, in 1980 and her husband of 69 years, Edgar, in 2010. She is survived by her children Leroy (Jean), Susan (Barry Grove) and Brenda, grandsons Quinton (Lisa), Clayton, Garrett (G.W.), Leroy (Rebekah), Bryn, and Deverick and great granddaughter, Lilanie. She met her future husband Edgar when she was 16 and they married on August 12, 1940. In the early years of their marriage they lived in a logging camp at the head of Harrison Lake; Gwen had many happy memories of this time. In 1943 they built their first home on Cyril Street in Abbotsford. Their marriage was one of love and devotion and provided a strong foundation for their children. Gwen dedicated her life to her family and provided a loving home that was always filled with the smells of home baking for family and for friends who came to visit. She adored her grandsons and took every opportunity to spend time with them. Gwen was a member of The Rebekah Lodge and active in the Fraser Valley Lapidary club for a number of years. Their children were delighted to go ‘rock-hounding’ with their parents on the Fraser River sand bars. Gwen loved to be active, whether gardening, swimming, golfing, or cross-country skiing. She was also an avid reader and found pleasure in painting and knitting. She enjoyed card games and never lost the ability to play a competitive game of Crib. She belonged to the Chase Crib and curling clubs while she and Edgar lived part-time in Sorrento. The family greatly appreciates the care provided by the wonderful staff of Valhaven Home where Gwen resided for the past year. A Memorial Tea will be held at 1:00 pm, September 1, 2012 at the home of Leroy and Jean Clingwall, 2048 Orchard Drive, Abbotsford. Flowers gratefully declined in favour of donations to your favourite charity, in Gwen’s memory.
