300 Chilliwack jobs ‘a huge deal’ says mayor Robert Freeman The Progress

Three hundred jobs are opening up this week at the Stream contact centre in Chilliwack - jobs that can lead to computer-related careers around the world. “It’s the kind of opportunity you get when you join a company like Stream, that’s truly a global opportunity,” said Mike Robinson, Stream’s site director in Chilliwack. Applications for the 300 jobs were being accepted at a two-day job fair Wednesday and Thursday, but more hiring will be done over the next few months. In addition to entry-level jobs providing support for a new Stream client, there will also be positions opening for team managers and trainers. Robinson said he couldn’t disclose the name of the new client, but the new employees will be answering calls for support from customers “anywhere in North America” who have purchased the client’s “cool new toys.” There is a paid three-week paid training period for the new employees. Customer-service experience, in the retail or food industry, along with some basic computer know-how are the core skills the company is looking for in new employees. Robinson said the company promotes employees “from within at every possible opportunity” and some go on to management positions. One Chilliwack employee is now the company’s resource planner for all of North America, he said. Continued: STREAM/ p6

BCGEU strike not likely the last Tom Fletcher Black Press

Provincial government employees staged their largest one-day strike so far Wednesday to press for a bigger wage increase, with two thirds of the workforce off the job at ministry offices, liquor stores and ICBC offices province-wide. In Chilliwack, workers were off the job at the Service BC office on Yale Road, as well as local government liquor stores and other government locations. Both the government and the B.C. Government and Services Employees’ Union

remained unwilling to budge from their positions after negotiations broke down over wage increases this spring. The union executive is meeting next week to consider further strike action this fall. Two earlier one-day strikes targeted liquor warehouses and selected resource ministry offices in the B.C. Interior. Government negotiators offered raises of two and 1.5 per cent for the next two years, then withdrew the offer after the union staged the first strike. BCGEU chief negotiator David Vipond said Wednesday the wage offer has been tabled and withdrawn three times since talks began early this

year, a tactic he called “peeka-boo bargaining.” And after three years without a wage increase, he said the union is sticking to its demand for 3.5 per cent in the first year and a cost-of-living raise of about 2.5 per cent in year two. “They want us to reduce our real income over this contract, and we’ve already taken a fiveper-cent hit,” Vipond said in an interview. “So to try and chisel us again with a skinny deal doesn’t make sense to us. We want to at least keep up with inflation and gain a little of what we have lost.” Premier Christy Clark unveiled her new cabinet lineup in Victoria Wednesday as

BCGEU pickets circled government offices downtown. Both Clark and Mike de Jong, the new finance minister, said they have no intention of increasing the burden on taxpayers to provide bigger raises to provincial workers. “The government’s position on this hasn’t changed,” Clark said. “I am not going back to taxpayers for more money in order to give government workers a raise. We are in very tough economic times and we have to balance our budget.” The government estimates that the wage offer adds up to $1,700 more over two years for a BCGEU employee making $48,000 a year.

Changes made to Chilliwack’s ‘pro-development culture’ Robert Freeman The Progress

Things have changed at Chilliwack City Hall since a planning director made some improper land-use decisions that landed him before a B.C. Supreme Court Justice last month. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said changes have been made so that a “pro-development culture” at City Hall, criticized by Madame Justice Miriam Maisonville in sentencing former planning director Grant Sanborn, is no longer present — or desired. “We balance all the needs of our community, business, homes and farms,” Gaetz said.

The City’s planning director and approving officer are no longer the same person, she added, which allowed Sanborn to approve a questionable housing subdivision using farmland without a review by the Agricultural Land Commission. And the pro-development culture has been replaced by a culture of openness, the mayor said, which encourages city staff to speak out when they see wrong-doing. Justice Maisonville said during sentencing that the culture that had compelled city staff to bend rules in favour of development had “failed the public interest.” But Chilliwack MLA John Les, who was mayor at the time and a partner in the subdivision improp-

erly approved by Sanborn, said he made no apologies for his prodevelopment attitude. “I haven’t seen (Maisonville’s) comments, but if somebody wants to criticize me for being pro-development — go ahead,” he said. “That is a criticism I will accept with honour.” He said developments in Chilliwack during his time as mayor helped pay for road improvements and other infrastructure needed by the City. “People around the province still hold Chilliwack up as an example of economic growth and progress,” he said. “Regardless of what others might say, I’m quite unapologetic

as to having adopted a pro-growth attitude both in my time on City council, and my 10 years as MLA,” he said. Gaetz, who was a city councillor during Les’s time as mayor, pointed out that local economic conditions were very different back then as the military base had closed and there was a land squeeze for housing and commercial development. “The base had closed and (also) two food processing plants,” she said. “Chilliwack was lagging behind in development.” And that made for a very different attitude toward the farmland that surrounded the city and choked off growth, she said. Les had “started a war” with

the ALC, Gaetz said, which damaged the City’s relationship with the provincial body charged with the protection of farmland. “It was intense,” Gaetz recalled. Now there is “pride in being known as the food basket of B.C.,” she said, and the City aggressively promotes agriculture through its tourism and marketing arms. The City also has a cooperative relationship with the ALC now, she added, and city staff discuss proposed boundary adjustments of farmlands with the ALC. Sanborn was sentenced to six months probation for failing to enforce provincial regulations, non-criminal offences that will not result in a criminal record.

Paramount supporters won’t bow out Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

The decision to demolish the old Paramount Theatre building still isn’t sitting well with one the members of the Chilliwack Paramount Film Society. “Having accurate information available is really important and I think there’s been some misinformation circulated,” said Alvin Bartel, who is also a local architect. He was on vacation when the vote went down at city hall, and was caught completely by surprise by the council vote in favour of the wrecking ball. Coun. Jason Lum was the lone councillor to vote against demolition. The council decision has been made, why speak up now? “I think council should change their minds,” Bartel told The Progress. “The cost of tearing this building down is about the same as the complete restoration.” He said it would have been inappropriate previously to talk about the group’s RFP proposal to run a not-for-profit repertory theatre on the site, especially while they were in discussions with the city about it. Bartel produced a document he called “Myths of Paramount Proportion” which will be online shortly, along with a copy of the original proposal submitted by the Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount, which was incorporated as the Chilliwack Paramount Film Society. “Unfortunately a number of myths have been propagated surrounding the Paramount that serve to muddy the waters and leave the citizens of Chilliwack with a skewed perspective of what is required to revitalize the downtown,” Bartel writes. City officials have stated that the decision to demolish dovetails with the elaborately developed Downtown Implementation Plan, which emerged after several years of research and consultation, that included a public consultation process.

Motorists reminded to slow down Jenna Hauck The Progress

Now that school is back in session, Chilliwack motorists are being reminded to slow down to the posted 30 km/h in school zones on school days. RCMP, Speed Watch, ICBC, the City of Chilliwack and Community Policing were out in full force Tuesday nabbing speeding drivers along Promontory Road at Vedder

elementary. School zone speed limits are now in effect Mondays to Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A motorist speeding within a 30 km/h school zone could face a minimum fine of $196 to a maximum of $483, a penalty of three to six points on his or her record, as well as having their vehicle impounded for seven days, depending on how excessive the speed is over the

posted speed limit. In addition to watching for speeding drivers, RCMP were also issuing warnings and tickets to people parked in nostopping zones outside Vedder elementary. “It adds to congestion and it adds to blind spots for kids,” says ICBC road safety co-ordinator Mike Weightman. “All of us need to pay attention to the rules of the road and make sure children get

Chilliwack man dies in Labour Day crash

■ C ROSS C OUNTRY

A 25-year-old Chilliwack man died in a fiery singlevehicle crash near Hope on the Coquihalla Highway Labour Day Monday. Police investigators believe the driver, whose identity has not been released pending notification of family, died instantly.

The preliminary police investigation indicates the 1992 Acura Integra lost control at a high rate of speed crossing over a large gravel pull. “It appears the vehicle launched into a large bush area and came to rest against a tree leading to a steep

slope,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen. “The vehicle then became fully engulfed in flames,” he said. Two travelers who happened by tried unsuccessfully to put out the flames, he said. Excessive speed is believed to have “played a factor” in the

crash as other road and visibility conditions “were excellent at the time of the crash,” Thiessen said. Anyone who may have information about the crash is asked to call Const. Stancumbe at the RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039.

The group is trying to rally support for a last minute reprieve for the building. “I think the proposal we made to run a theatre with a not-for-profit model needs some public scrutiny.

Airborne ‘band of brothers’ meets in Chilliwack Robert Freeman The Progress

A ‘band of brothers’ is meeting in Chilliwack this week for their annual fall luncheon. Not the Shakespearean band of brothers, but that brotherhood of paratroopers who formed the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion. “The real band of brothers were the paratroopers,” Rollie Keith, a former paratrooper and tank commander, said last week. While many brave Canadians volunteered to fight the Nazis in the Second World War, paratroopers went on to volunteer a second time — to jump out of a perfectly good airplane into a combat zone. The Sept. 8 luncheon, hosted by Bornewest, one of two BC chapters of the Canadian Airborne Forces Association, will also commemorate the 68th anniversary of the airdrop at Arnhem, the largest airborne operation of the Second World War. Canadian paratroopers did not take part in ‘Operation Market Garden’ as it was called (the battle was portrayed in the movie ‘A Bridge Too Far’) — but they played significant roles in later battles

that pushed the Nazis back into Germany, and to ultimate defeat. Lieutenant General (Retired) Kent Foster, guest speaker at the Chilliwack lunch, will talk about the nature of the “Airborne Brotherhood” that still exists today. Keith described the “essence of a paratrooper” as his “extreme physical fitness” and his capacity to go further and do more than the regular soldier. “You had to be tougher than the other guy, so that gave you a little bit of a swagger,” Keith said. “Everything we did, we did it at the highest standards you could do it.” But in 1995 the airborne regiment was disbanded under a cloud of controversy after the murder of a Somali teenager in 1993. However, the airborne association is still fighting that decision, saying it was a politically motivated act brought about by adverse media coverage unsupported by the facts. “The murder of a Somali teenager and the shooting of an intruder in 1993 were inexcusable and brought discredit to the regiment,” the association said in an open letter last year. “However, the

actions of a few soldiers should not have resulted in the disbandment of the regiment.” The Chilliwack luncheon starts at 10 a.m. Saturday with coffee and donuts at the Area Support Unit located

Promise of a more stable school year

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

Chilliwack students and teachers were back in school this week, no doubt hopeful this will be a better year in the public school system than 2011-12 was. One of the most disappointing things about the past school year was a year-long work-to-rule campaign by teachers, who were upset that they were getting nowhere in negotiations with the provincial government over a new contract. While their frustration was understandable, the length of the job action and the effect on students and families was disturbing. Teachers refused to do report cards and would only in special circumstances meet with parents to let them know how their child was doing in school. Thus, for most students, there was no co-ordinated approach to learning from school and home. Study after study has shown that when teachers and parents are able to work together, students will learn more and get much further ahead. Thankfully, the B.C. Teachers Federation and the provincial education bargaining authority reached an agreement over the summer months, and there will be no job action this year. The BCTF is still angry with the government and will be working toward its defeat, as is its right, but there is a contract in place. Whether a new government, should one be elected, will come up with a better deal remains to be seen. There should be report cards and proper consultation with parents this school year, and that is to the benefit of everyone — teachers, students and parents. Education has never been as important as it is today. The ability of young people to live independent lives as adults is directly related to a good education, and the school system is a key part of that. Here’s hoping for a successful school year. ~ Black Press

Pipeline debate: Separating oil from manure VICTORIA – I was as surprised as anyone to hear about the plan by this newspaper’s owner, David Black, to begin regulatory work on an oil refinery for Kitimat. I’ll leave it to others to comment on the practicality of that plan, and whether it would make the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project more acceptable to B.C.’s government and population. Black Press news coverage, columns, letters to the editor and other reader comments are not affected by this project, and there has been a range of views expressed already. Whatever the merits of the refinery idea, it has advanced the debate over pipelines and the place of oil in our society. And that’s a good thing, because as someone with a basic knowledge of chemistry and some experience in oil refining, I have noticed a lot of ignorance about the subject. Today I’d like to address some

of the main misconceptions, which have been exploited by some opponents. The first one is oil pollution in general and how it gets into the environment. A global study by the Smithsonian Institution in 1995 calculated the amount of  oil  making its way  into oceans this way: Big tanker spills Tom accounted for 37 FLETCHER million gallons a year, about five per cent of the total marine oil pollution identified. By far the largest source was oil runoff from land into drains, from oil changes, municipal and industrial wastes and other sources: 363 million gallons. Bilge cleaning and other routine ship maintenance added 137 million gallons, four times the tanker spill average.

Air pollution from vehicles and industry deposited hydrocarbon particles equal to another 97 million gallons; natural seeps added 62 million gallons; offshore drilling discharges accounted for 15 million gallons. So that’s the first thing to understand. It’s not tankers and pipelines doing most of the polluting. It’s you and me. Then there is the propaganda about greenhouse gas emissions from the oil sands crude. Actor Robert Redford is one of the highest-profile pitchmen for the false notion that “tar sands” oil generates three times the greenhouse gases as conventional oil. The facts are clear. The most widely cited source is a graph prepared by Cambridge Energy Research Associates, which shows that 75 per cent of greenhouse gases from all types of crude occur when the gasoline, jet fuel and

diesel are burned by the end user. Yes, there are variations in emissions on the remaining quarter. Emissions from mined oil sands crude are slightly higher than steam extraction, which is slightly higher than conventionally drilled and pumped crude. The most greenhouse gas-intensive crude used in North America is California heavy crude, which is conventionally drilled. Burning coal produces far more greenhouse gases than oil, as University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver has calculated. Two U.S. environmental groups, including the one fronted by Redford, have lately been promoting a study that suggests oil sands crude is more corrosive to pipelines. False, says the industry, showing analysis of pipes that have carried diluted bitumen for decades.

The Trans-Mountain pipeline has been carrying crude from Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state for more than 60 years. It has periodically carried heavy crude for 40 years, and diluted bitumen for 25 years. Some of that crude is refined in Washington and the gasoline and diesel barged up to supply B.C. gas stations. And of course Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and all other B.C. islands depend on marine fuel shipments. And let’s not forget the most common heavy oil used in B.C. It’s called asphalt.

Pipe dream could be a nightmare At a recent Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Ian Anderson gave a presentation on Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin the Trans Mountain Pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, passing through the Fraser Valley. Ian emphasized the “economic benefits” and that pipeline technology is the safest mode of transporting tar sands oil (otherwise known as bitumen).   Although he mentioned some spills, there have been an alarming and distressing number of pipeline spills over the last 10 years, leaving devastation in their wake.   The biggest spills are impossible to clean up, with oil industry only being able to clean up to 15 per cent of the mess, leaving the rest to poison ecosystems.   The most important lesson with this experience is that, despite “improved” engineering, spills keep happening.  So we know that spills, bursts and leaks are inevitable.   Ian Anderson stated clearly at the luncheon that, although his company would do everything possible to prevent spills, there are no guarantees.   This is very understand-

able as there is always the risk of human error and technology does wear down.  In addition, pipelines are subject to earthquakes and tremors, mud slides and landslides in BC’s rough terrain.   This does not even take into account the extreme risk for a disaster to happen on coastal waters, as bitumen would be loaded onto huge tankers in increasing numbers to be shipped to foreign markets out of Vancouver harbour. The Harper government is telling the public that “economic benefits” of getting bitumen to Asian markets out weigh any collateral damage this may cause.  Not only will be there be a boon of short term jobs and a few long term jobs, but federal, provincial, municipal and First Nations governments will gain huge revenues by way of royalties and taxes.   This short-sited vision has been exposed by Robyn Allen, an experienced economist, as not being in the best interest of BC or Canada.  Given the inevitability of a disastrous spill on the coastal waters and/or land, there is no consideration given to other sectors of the economy – tourism,

fishing, agriculture, or to irreparable damage to precious aquifers. The plans violate aboriginal rights to proper consultation and consent as many First Nations are in fierce opposition to this project. We have seen too many images of seals, birds, and fish suffering death in an oily mess in the waters and on land.   Most alarming is that bitumen is currently being pumped through the 59-yearold Kinder Morgan pipeline and will more than double if another pipeline is built along side of this one.  This is destined for Burnaby where highly toxic bitumen will be loaded onto huge tankers, increasing the inevitability of disastrous spills.   Yes there are some shortterm economic benefits to the Kinder Morgan “pipe dream.”  On the other hand, the long-term collateral damage is a price too high for BC to pay.   This is not in the best interest of Canada, and we the people must take a stand to stop both Kinder Morgan and Enbridge plans.

recommendations of the Downtown Task Force is to assemble pieces of land in the downtown and make bold moves to take down buildings that cannot be remediated.” But just what is this “bold new vision” for the city centre to which you refer? I don’t recall seeing any plans for same. We had a plan at one time: to preserve the architecture and ambience of one of B.C’s first incorporated cities, whose downtown core once hummed with activity — one only has to look at the archival photos of a vibrant downtown core, which now crawls along, a gutted shadow of its former self. Mayor Gaetz, you were quoted as saying that having empty storefronts and open spaces where buildings used to be is something that every community goes

through. You say that the land has to be assembled by private owners, that “it’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished, with greening, and trees and public space, all the lovely things that make a neighbourhood.” How absurd. Buildings, people, familiar shops, preserved facades, densified business and restaurants with outdoor patios which give a place atmosphere and activity, this is what makes a city neighbourhood. What’s that, Coun. Huttema? Planter boxes of veggies on the gutted theatre site? This is Chilliwack not Vancouver. We don’t need a downtown veggie garden---we are covered for veggies thanks. Are you sure you live locally? I can’t state strongly enough how discouraged I am by the actions taken by council over these

matters. Few seem to have any sensitivity for the history and unique ambience here that is worth preserving. Many small communities have revitalized their downtown core while preserving existing buildings. This council does not honour the history of this city, nor the vision of its founders, nor the uniqueness of its architecture, as evidenced by the decisions taken over the past few years. Your vision of revitalization through destruction is ill conceived and lacking in sensitivity. Your recent handling of the Paramount theatre issue smacks of deception. The voice of the people was ignored. With the exception of Jason Lum, I will not be voting for any of you in the next election.

Councillors fail to honour Chilliwack’s history So Mayor Gaetz wants to save the Paramount sign. “People love that sign,” she is quoted as saying.”It’s a familiar landmark to all of us.” (No timeline yet on Paramount demolition, Chilliwack Progress, Aug. 28.) Surely, Madam Mayor, you jest. You go on to say that perhaps at least “pieces” of the sign “will be incorporated into the new building that still bears the Paramount name.” For goodness sake it’s not the sign that the people of Chilliwack want to preserve, it’s the building. Putting a piece of the old sign onto a new building would be like adding salt to a wound.”It’s nostalgia, and it’s beautiful.” How patronizing.

o matter which way you slice it, it’s hard to dispute that Canadians love a good sandwich. According to industr y experts, North Americans eat about 193 sandwiches per person each year! The key to building a sensational sandwich is selecting a good foundation; whenever possible use fresh, high quality bread. COBS Bread, a Canadian bakery, only sells bread that is baked fresh each morning. Any leftover bread is given to charity at the end of the day so your bread is guaranteed fresh! What’s more, all of COBS’ breads are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients available. COBS Bread offers a wide range of breads including their signature Cape Seed (made with nine grains and seeds) as well as CHIA, Higher Fibre and Pane di Casa. Choose breads that complement your sandwich fillings. Flavoursome breads like Pumpernickel pair amazingly well with smoked meats and strong cheeses. Classic sandwiches, like BLTs, pair best with classic bread types like white or lighter whole wheat. With unlimited sandwich combinations, choosing where to start might be a little difficult. Here are a few tried and true recipes created by Vancouver chef Murray Bancroft to get you started. They are sure to make your lunch sizzle.

Premier Clark unveils cabinet for election year Black Press

Premier Christy Clark moved cabinet veteran Mike de Jong to the key finance job vacated last week by Kevin Falcon, and promoted two newcomers to cabinet in a major shuffle Wednesday. Kelowna-Lake Countr y MLA Norm Letnick is B.C.’s new agriculture minister, and West VancouverCapilano MLA Ralph Sultan made it to cabinet at age 79, as minister of state for seniors. Comox Valley MLA Don McRae, a former high school teacher, takes over for the retiring George Abbott as education minister. And Vancouver-Fair view MLA Margaret MacDiarmid, a physician, replaces de Jong

NDP leader Adrian Dix countered that the shakeup shows instability. Cadieux is the fifth minister in the children and families role in recent years, he said, and Langley MLA Mary Polak becomes the 11th minister in charge of ICBC during the B.C. Liberal government. Polak moves to the transportation ministry vacated by Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom, who surprised the government Tuesday by joining the list of B.C. Liberal MLAs not running in

in the health portfolio. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett returns to cabinet in a previous role, minister of community, sport and cultural development. Bennett was fired from cabinet in 2010 after harshly criticizing former premier Gordon Campbell. Returning to cabinet are Vancouver-Langara MLA Moira Stilwell, who ran for the B.C. Liberal leadership last year, and WestsideKelowna MLA Ben Stewart, who reprises a previous role as citizens’ services minister. Stilwell takes over the social development job from Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux, who becomes children and family development minister. Clark stressed that the cabinet rep-

The first motorists will cross the new Port Mann Bridge on Sept. 18 as three eastbound

Highway 1 lanes open across the new span. The transition comes amid a host of other big changes drivers are being warned to expect this month.

Just before the partial opening of the bridge, the Lougheed Highway eastbound will shift to a new final alignment south of Highway 1 on Sept. 16.

Then on Sept. 19 a new overpass will open carrying westbound bridge traffic to Lougheed Highway eastbound. And over the Sept. 22-23 weekend crews are to complete and open another new overpass – the longest in the $3.3-billion Port Mann/ Highway 1 project – connecting Lougheed Highway westbound to Highway 1 eastbound. That’s just part of the complex array of work underway around the Cape Horn Interchange. “Reconstructing the Cape Horn Interchange is a megaproject within the Port Mann/Highway 1 megaproject, and a crucial part of the solution to our congestion problems,” Transportation Investment Corp. CEO Mike Proudfoot said. “Over the coming weeks, drivers are going to see big changes as the project’s most technically challenging components come together in a hurry.” The staged opening of the interchange and the new 10-lane bridge are aimed at avoiding much worse traffic delays than motorists will already face.

Seabird school offering students ‘real skills for real life’

Seabird Island community school has evolved its programming to provide students with “real skills for real life.” The new career academic instructional model for grades 7-12 will provide all the academic courses required for graduation, but with an additional 200 hours of programming in driver’s education, special certifications in Food Safe, WHMIS, babysitting and first aid, computer science, work experience, entrepreneurship, community service projects, conflict resolution and postsecondar y program shadowing. The move is meant to give students more opportunity. “What we have heard from parents is that they want their children to have strong basic literacy and numeracy skills along with the life skills that will help them to go out into the world after graduation and be successful in postsecondary education, get a job, and be good citizens,” said principal Shari White. This new model is unique in B.C. and is loosely based on the career academies model operating in the United States. The community

school will also continue its focus on providing specialized reading, math and writing programs to ensure that students have strong

cents to $2 an hour. I was there for almost a year but then I had to leave because it got too cold for me. I came back to Chilliwack and started working at the old courthouse,” he reflected. From there, construcAna tion Macedo work became sporadic at best so Jack decided to go to what was then referred to as Manpower and this landed him a job at a hardware store. “I ended up staying there for 12 years and not long after I started with them, I got the position of assistant store manager,” he said proudly. From there, Jack joined the BC Forest Service and was there until his retirement 36 years later. “This was the best job that I ever had and I really enjoyed it,” he said gently. Jack is a creative sort and enjoyed painting, using pen and ink as his medium. “I always had top marks in art and drafting in school.” He also enjoyed his 10 years as member of the Chilliwack Player’s

Guild where he was heavily involved in set design. “My first show was Fiddler on the Roof and I quite enjoyed it. I worked with Bob Forsythe and he was just a great guy,” he enthused. While he enjoyed his career, his passion is one that began when he was just a young boy back in Holland. “I started working with my dad in the garden when I was about 10 and I maintain that this is what helped us survive the war.” He currently lives on a half-acre and the property is dotted with flowers, vegetables and fruit trees. It’s quite the undertaking but Jack wouldn’t want it any other way. “My wife and I were married for 56 years. She used to help me with the garden but she passed away a year ago so now I do it by myself, with some help from my family,” he said. He started growing grapes in 1982 and is actively involved with the Fraser Valley Grape Growers. He’s also an active member of the Chilliwack Zymurgy Wine and Beer Making Club. “Bob Fraser introduced me to the club almost 40 years ago and I must admit that my passion is shifting from wine making to beer making,” he smiled. Jack has won

the national beer making competition five times and looks forward to the possibility of future wins. As if his schedule wasn’t hectic enough, Jack is also a dedicated member of the Chilliwack Garden Club, an organization that he’s been involved with since 1989. “I am currently a director of the club and I’ve held this position for awhile. I also show and have been doing the newsletter for the past eight years. It keeps me busy, that’s for sure,” he chuckled. Jack is also one of the driving forces behind the School Garden Program, a program that continues to run successfully. “There are about 14 judges involved and I organize all of the judging.” He has also been a proud member of the Independent Order of Foresters, a fraternal benefit society, for the past 52 years. While Jack is over 80 now, you wouldn’t know it from looking at him. Jack keeps himself young by continually working hard, in addition to eating healthy and living well. He is visibly proud of sons Ray, Gordon and Barry and his five grandchildren and looks forward to many more happy and healthy years with them.

th

Jack Kouwenhoven was just 10 years old when the Second Wordl War broke out, but he remembers those days well. The incessant bombing, the fear, the devastation, the rationing of food and the grave atrocities are etched in his mind. Once the war ended, his native Holland and indeed the world began to heal and life slowly began to return to normal. Shortly after the war, Jack’s uncle, who was an insurance agent in Chilliwack, convinced the Kouwenhoven’s that life in Canada would be more prosperous. Eventually, the family immigrated to a land of new opportunity. “We arrived the day after the Cherry Carnival and I thought that Chilliwack was such a dirty town. There was litter everywhere which was unheard of back home. I soon found out that this was not the case. They had just had a big event,” he smiled. By the time that Jack arrived in Canada, he was 19 and had already taken four years of vocational training as a ship carpenter back in Holland. “I tried to get a job at Sterling Shipyards but while I had the training, I couldn’t speak a word of English and because the war had ended, the need for ship building just wasn’t there. Instead, I did some work for a Dutch contractor, doing store front renovations,” he said. His father wanted a house built and commissioned his son to do the work. “We built it next to the old fairgrounds. The old chicken barn was located right next to our house. This is when I fell in love with the fair and in one way or another I have been involved with it for 50 years.” Jack eventually got on with the City as a carpenter but after a year he decided to head east. “I got itchy feet and along with three other guys, I went to Edmonton to do carpentry work. My wage went up from 89

Forest songs return to Island 22 Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

There won’t be any long lineups or high priced tickets at this made-in-Chilliwack music festival. Where the Forest Songs Are, returns to Island 22 Regional Park on Saturday, Sept 8. Featuring a bunch of live bands in a unique park setting for $20, it’s the second year of the fledgling all-ages event. “Chilliwack is a music hungry town,” says festival founder Robert Dunning. “This is going to be a relaxed day outdoors focused on good music and good times. There’s a good vibe, and it’s fresh and different.” Last year at the inaugural Where the Forest Songs Are, they had about 130 people checking out the half dozen bands from various parts of the Lower Mainland. Organizers are crossing their fingers for an even bigger turnout this year. “We’ve added some family friendly aspects like face painting and someone doing henna,” says Dunning. Some music blogs and writers have been buzzing about the festival this year. They’ve been working on nailing down the details since January, and that opened up the range of options they could offer festival attendees, like a couple of food trucks including one from Shandhar Hut. “We also have two performance stages,” he says. “One of them is the side stage to the main stage.” On the lineup for WTFSA 2012 include the return of electronica masters Teen Daze, along with Young Liars, The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, Jordan Klassen, Ma Petite, Old Mare, The Parish of Little Clifton, Ian Schram, Adam Klassen. Dunning, 20, is not a musician, but several of his friends play in bands. Originally from Chilliwack, credits his girlfriend for com-

or at the gate. All ages event. No alcohol. Gates open at 1 p.m. and the show runs until 10 p.m. Both free and pay parking options will be available on-site.

Photos focus of art show The photography exhibit, Light and Shape, zooms in on the work of two local groups in the art gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The new show unites the Cornerstone Print Group, founded by the late Jim Britton, with photographers from all over the Lower Mainland, with the Chilliwack Photography Club. Many of the members of the Cornerstone group were taught about light by Jim Britton, said CVAA spokesperson Mar y Chalmers Main. They worked on applying those skills and some have gone on to become professional, she says. The show runs until October 13, and kicks off with the Opening Reception, open to the public, on Saturday Sept. 8 from noon to 2 p.m. An ‘adult content’ advisory will be posted on-site, as the exhibit does include some nudes, she said. “They are in no way exploitative, but are art works from the various artists.” Light and Shape, in the ar t gallery in the Cultural Centre, Wednesdays to Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept. 8, noon to 2 p.m.

Congratulations! Owen Back to school with his new lap top!

STUDENT OF THE MONTH “I began selling Student 1st chocolates 6 months ago. The youth program has helped me with better communication, being more confident with people in face to face scenarios. It has also helped me gain a grade point in school because of my new math skills. Since starting I have enjoyed spending money as well as learning to manage money. It felt great buying gifts for my family last Christmas without asking help with cash. Having a new laptop is awesome and I believe it will enhance my learning in school. I am very grateful for the job skills I have aquired selling Student 1st chocolate and I feel that the experience gained here will help me in life. Thanks for the opportunity and I am very gratefull for the awesome new laptop. I think Gary has been a great role model for young people.”

Ceremony to establish cultural series A traditional ceremony will entrench the popular Cultural Experience Series the morning of Sept. 22 at the Sto:lo Resource Centre. Sto:lo and non-Sto:lo alike are invited to witness a unique event with a traditional welcome, performance by the Semoya Dancers and storytelling by Josette Jim in the afternoon. Jim is Coast Salish from

Kwantlen First Nation, a wellrespected cultural leader who holds her teachings in high regard, says event organizer Francine Douglas. “Her knowledge comes from 35 years of teachings from aunties, uncles, elders and chiefs,” she said. The rich oral tradition handed down through Sto:lo stories “embody the history,

philosophy and morals” of our Sto:lo culture. “It fosters our identify as Aboriginal people,” she said. Her stories are based on the Sxowxiyám and Swelqwels— the legends, myths and true histories—of the Sto:lo people, including the infamous Sasquatch Story. The welcome is at 11 a.m., with artists and sponsors introduced.

The Opening Ceremony will feature Josette Jim at 1 pm. There will be a salmon and bannock lunch at 12 noon by donation. “This is a family and community event meant to bring Sto:lo and Sto:lo neighbors together to share First Nation culture, stories, history and create understanding and community connections.”

NOW UNTIL SEPTEMBER 23!

When researching travel insurance, there are three important things for people to consider: What is your health status? Depending upon your age, some policies might require you to complete a health questionnaire. This needs to be answered accurately to ensure you have the correct coverage. If necessary, purchase preexisting condition coverage so that you’re covered in the event you have a claim relating to a pre-existing condition. What is your trip duration?

some success is found in zone 3. This hardiness factor, along with their long blooming habit, now opens up doors for heathers to be planted where they could never be used before. As the weather turns wet and frosty in late fall, they fill the gap before the winter ericas begin to bloom. Most varieties are reasonably compact, growing only 12 to 14 inches (30 to 40cm) tall with a spread of 16 inches (40cm). Their foliage colour varies from a rich dark green and mid-green to yellow. Their flowering times vary slightly, but they will usually look great from August through November and some even into December. This long bloom time now makes

them equivalent to many winter blooming varieties and can give many gardens, with the addition of early blooming callunas, a year round heather garden. Here are some of Kurt’s top bud bloom varieties: ‘Alicia’ - Still the very best white and very long flowering. ‘Amethist’ - Very best purple and has a nice upright form. ‘Athene’ - Striking stiff, upright stems with bright red flowers. It makes quite a statement. ‘Rosita’ - Has very large dark pink buds and a nice stiff upright habit. ‘Sandy’ - White buds and yellow foliage contrast nicely and last well into fall. A nice accent plant for containers and small space gardens. ‘Theresa’ - Another winner with year round yellow foliage. Its bright pink buds stand out well, making it a great accent plant. Kurt has named this collection the ‘Garden Girls’, and we are very fortunate to have all of these varieties avail-

able here on the West Coast. Another innovation with bud bloomers is ‘Twin Girls’, where growers plant a bud bloomer variety and a foliage cultivar like ‘Zeta’ or ‘Zora’ together for a unique colour contrast. ‘Girl Trios’, where three different bud bloomers are grown together as one plant, have also become very popular. These plants are ideally suited for containers and will also create a very nice effect in small and large space gardens. Other breeders are now taking a look at the potential of bud bloomers, and Dutch breeders have come up with a series of their own called ‘Beauty Ladies’. This new bud bloom innovation in callunas will make a great contribution to so many gardens, and it will be truly exciting to see where it goes from here. I am writing about these heathers now because they are out in garden stores everywhere just waiting for a home in your garden or on your patio.

Back to School!

Some children may feel a little nervous - new teachers, new friends, and new expectations. Literacy skills and healthy family relationships alleviate some of that anxiety. The importance of family and the successful transition from the early years to school focused years is paramount throughout all Chilliwack Community Services’ programming. Some parents may feel a little anxious about the cost of new clothing and school supplies when already struggling on a tight budget. Thank you to our donors who have helped families start the school year off on the right foot. September is a busy month for Chilliwack Community Services too. A wide variety of free programs begin based on the belief that a parent is a child’s first and most important teacher.

dinner. During the open mic session, Class Valedictorian, Irene Hrusovsky told the group that this was her first time she was able to make a class reunion in the 50 years since graduation but was delighted to hear the stories from so many classmates. She reminded everyone of the importance of his or her individual stories in their lives. John Bayfield reflected on his recollections of the activities of the Class of 62 informing them that they truly were the last of the nerds. Tony Clarke, 1962 Boys’ Senior Ring and Student Council president, shared several thoughts about his colleagues noting that their contributions to society over the past 50 years are immeasurable. Tony also thanked the organizing committee for their time, thoughtfulness and efforts in making the reunion a reality.

Sue Chalkias, right, has been awarded the queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her work with orphans affected by HIV/AIDS.

Queen’s medal for local founder of HIV orphanage A Chilliwack woman who started an international rescue mission has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal. Susan Chalkias was 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 South-East 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. Sue 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 John saw a need in Africa so re-focused their efforts on Zambia. With the support of Cedar Valley Mennonite Church and Northside Church they have been able to establish the Buseka Home and Grace Academy, a boarding school for 120 children. They also run three feeding programs. They now have more than 2,000 supporters around the world and a staff of 77 in Zambia. “We received more than $100,000 through the Rotary Clubs in Mission,” said Sue. “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.

The Chilliwack Progress   Thursday, September 6, 2012

Memory loss and aging: Chilliwack residents can learn more As we age, some forgetfulness is natural and inevitable. You might, for example, “lose” the car keys or other household objects, or forget where you heard something and/or who told you. Those usually aren’t causes for concern. But Chilliwack families who are seeing their family members struggle with loss of memory, difficulty with day-to-day tasks, and changes in mood and behaviour, could be dealing with something more serious. “People may think these symptoms are part of normal aging, but they aren’t,” explains Jillian Armit, the Chilliwack and Abbotsford support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. Those symptoms could well be indicators of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The health issues are becoming more common. Already, one in four Canadians has some-

one in their family with Alzheimer’s disease. And every five minutes a Canadian develops dementia. “If you have concerns about your memory, or are concerned about someone else, it is important that you consult with

your family doctor,” says Armit. The Society can also help local caregivers who are living with dementia. It runs a free support and information group that serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping

with the disease. The group helps create support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia. For more information contact Armit at 604-7024603 or jarmit@alzheimerbc.org.

Perspectives Positive Psychology: Spreading the vibe, and helping yourself and others This week we continue to explore the theme of Positive Psychology, the study of positive emotions, strengths-based character, and healthy institutions. This week

we focus on the role that it can play in helping ourselves and others. Happiness is a goal of positive psychology. Positive Psychology describes several path-

ways – major dimensions of our lives – that get us closer to this goal. If we expand and build on each of these areas we can bring ourselves closer to that goal as each dimen-

sion plays a role in driving happiness. Creating more positive emotions in our lives as a means of building resiliency (a buffer or bounceback power against

everyday challenges). Positive emotions also reduce stress and allow us to be more curious, creative, and better able to problem solve. Maintaining a sense

of meaning and purpose can act as a stabilizing force during times of change and transition. It can serve as an anchor to keep us balanced during life’s inevitable ups and

Building your life around y o u r natural talents and performance strengths instead of obsessEryn ing on weakWicker nesses. W h e n we are able to use our strengths, we are satisfying our natural urges, and thus we feel good about ourselves: we thrive and feel invigorated, we perform better and are more productive, and we have greater contentment and satisfaction. The goal is to alleviate suffering (by identifying what is causing and contributing to it) and increase well-being (by increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning in life). Possible and tangible ways to help incorporate positive psychology into our own life, and the lives of those you interact with include: 1. Identify your top strengths and encourage others to identify theirs. Then try to use these strengths daily. 2. Start a Blessings or Gratitude Journal or have that conversation daily identifying three things (big or small) that happened that day and why. 3. Write a letter of forgiveness to someone describing the situation and attached feelings, but don’t deliver it. 4. Write a letter of gratitude to someone you would like to thank for something they said or did and deliver it or read it to them. 5.  Focus on the fact that “satisficers” (“This is good enough”) have better well-being than “maximizers” (“I must find the perfect partner, TV, or vacation spot.”) and encourage this thinking in those around you. 6. Remember the role of optimism and hope in seeing that bad events are temporary and changeable. Remember what doors opened as well as what doors have closed. Continued: Positive/ p37

In the spotlight Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

Sixteen BCHL teams will be joined by a few hundred collegiate and professional scouts this weekend as the junior A circuit hosts its first ever Showcase event. Two ice sheets at Prospera provide the venues for 32 games, all jammed into the next three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). It’s a hockey spectacle on a grand scale, and Chilliwack Chiefs head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl says it’s long overdue. “I love the idea, and I always have,” he said Wednesday morning. “We’re probably four or five years behind on getting it done, but I’m extremely happy about it.” Smyl has surveyed the landscape in recent years and seen other leagues doing such things. Showcase events are almost always well received — providing tremendous benefit to the league and its players. “I think it gives us an identity in terms of a more professional junior league,” Smyl said of the benefits for the BCHL. “A lot of leagues at the junior A level do something like this and it just provides such great exposure.” Taking quick inventory, Smyl can’t think of a single collegiate hockey program that isn’t sending at least one talent evaluator to Chilliwack this weekend. Most are sending two. “And the other thing is the National Hockey League scouts, where every team will have one or two guys in the building,” he added. “The number of eyes on these kids through the weekend is going to be fantastic.” Smyl is proud to see Chilliwack hosting the first Showcase, but he doesn’t expect the event to go off entirely without hiccups. Donning his coach hat, the bench boss wonders how the Prospera ice sheets will hold up. “The thing that worries me is the ice quality, because any time you get the ice used all day long, especially if the weather’s warm, it’ll be hard F I N E

W I N E

to keep it in good shape,” he noted. “If the games go a little later than they’re supposed to, all you get is a quick flood and the ice doesn’t set the way its supposed to.” Smyl’s Chiefs face the Penticton Vees Friday night, with a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Chiefs are the ‘road team’ Saturday night, facing the Nanaimo Clippers in a 7 p.m. start. Both games are on the main rink. “For us, our approach will be business as usual,” Smyl said. “We’re fortunate to be at home for this thing. We’ve got our same dressing room. We get to sleep in our own beds. We expect our guys to prepare for this like any other game day.” Smyl is eager to see how his team responds. The Chiefs were sluggish through the preseason. Though they ended up 2-2-1 and prevailed in their most recent outing (a 3-1 win over Surrey last Saturday), the coach wasn’t happy. “I didn’t think we played well through the preseason. We showed little spurts here and there, but I didn’t think we played as well as we’re capable of,” he observed. “I expected more from returning players and I don’t know the reasons why they didn’t play as well as need be.” Smyl’s list of concerns starts with effort level, which he felt was lacking. “Effort. Physical play. Responsible play. Smart hockey,” he said, listing off things that didn’t meet his standards. “We made poor decisions with the puck and without the puck. We took bad, bad penalties. Majors didn’t need to happen.” Smyl hopes/expects his veteran players will be able to ‘flip the switch’ when the games count for real. In case they needed a reminder that hockey is a what-have-youdone-for-me-lately business, Smyl brought in some roster competition (see story to right). “They get the benefit of the doubt where preseason and regular season are concerned,” Smyl said. “It’s time to get it right.”

Chiefs lineup getting grittier The Chilliwack Chiefs got a little bit bigger and a whole lot tougher over the weekend, picking up 19-year-old Tanner Cochrane off waivers. The six-foot and 180 pound forward spent last season with the Powell River Kings, and it’s statistically obvious where his skill-set lies. The Kamloops native played •

41 regular season games for Powell River, producing little offensively with just four points. But he brought the grit, racking up 69 penalty minutes. In 14 playoff games en-route to the BCHL final, Cochrane had two points and 15 PIMs. “Tanner is a very physical player who likes to finish his checks,” said Chiefs general

manager Harvey Smyl. “We expect him to bring more intensity to our lineup.” Cochrane is eager to get started. “I am pretty excited to have the chance to play in Chilliwack,” he said. “The Chiefs have such a great tradition of success on and off of the ice, and I hope I can be a part of that.”

Tips for lady golfers Many ladies have more flexibility in their golf swings, but the result can be detrimental, writes Jennifer Greggain As a female golf professional, I can definitely notice that women often face different issues with their golf swings than men. Here are a few tips for the ladies in the crowd. The most common issue I see for ladies, including my own golf swing, is the tendency to overuse our lower body, essentially because it is our most powerful muscle group. This will often translate into excessive lateral movement with the hips, resulting in the dreaded sway. Ideally, the lower body acts as a stable base for the body to turn around. If stability is lost in this base, the result is a loss of power and consistency. The hips should turn approximately 30 degrees in the backswing, with limited lateral movement. To practice this, picture a pole extending out of the ground next to your right heel. As you turn in your backswing, your right hip should not touch this pole. Rather, you should feel like you are rotating your right hip, and coiling onto your right leg. This coiling onto your right side is crucial in gaining more distance. I explain this motion with the example of a sling shot. If the base of the sling shot moves as you are drawing it back, there will certainly be no power in the shot, and accuracy is also in question. Similar to the golf swing, the base must be stable to attain optimal efficiency. The second issue I often see with ladies deals with flexibility. Many ladies have more flexibility in their golf swings than men, but the result of this can sometimes be detrimental. With added flexibility, and the search for more distance, many ladies tend to overswing. Although a large backswing may feel more powerful, it can actually result in weaker shots. For example, golfers who overswing by losing extension in their backswings, or from a ‘flying elbow,’ are actually causing more problems than solving. A powerful backswing is best achieved with good extension, and with the right elbow pointed to the ground. This may require a somewhat shorter backswing, but don’t panic! A shorter backswing will almost always result in better efficiency with more power and accuracy. Chilliwack Golf and Country Club hosts the 2012 Chilliwack Ladies Open this weekend (Sept. 8-9), welcoming a field of over 90 amateurs, and nine professionals from across British Columbia. This is a great opportunity to see some of the best ladies in B.C. compete right here in our back yard! Jennifer teaches golf to adults and juniors at the Chilliwack Golf Academy. She played professionally on tour for over 10 years, including 2 years on the LPGA. She was also named the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Low Teaching Pro of the Year. She can be contacted at 604-7989805, or at Jennifer@chilliwackgolf.com
