Mayor defends LEC process

Fox calls for action on deadly road

Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

MoNique taMMiNga

Township Mayor Jack Froese has responded to critics who have denounced the $7.7 million expansion of the Langley Events Centre. In his address at Monday’s council meeting, the mayor also took responsibility for not making a public announcement about the project until weeks after work began. He said that on July 23, after several meetings, held in camera to protect the confidentiality of construction contracts, council authorized the Langley FaciliJack ties Society to Froese proceed with the first phase of development. This involves a new double gymnasium and an indoor turf/ dry floor facility. These, as well as eight changing rooms, are currently under construction east of the LEC. In-camera discussions were first held on June 11 when council sought proposals for the first phase of development, Froese revealed. Funding comes from the $15 million Land Capital Fund which was approved in the 2012 budget “and was fully disclosed to the public and approved unanimously by council,” Froese said. “The Township of Langley has used this fund in the past to facilitate construction of buildings or land acquisition and then complete a budget revision to include the project into a specified capital project fund,” Froese said. continued, PAGE 6

Something has to be done about 16 Avenue, a busy and deadly stretch of road that claimed the lives of a married couple on Thursday, said Township Councillor Charlie Fox. Even before the tragic crash had occurred, Fox had tabled a motion asking for traffic calming options like roundabouts to be considered for the busy route. He believes the opening of the new Port Mann Bridge will drive even more gravel trucks onto 16 Avenue. The motion was expected to be discussed at Monday’s council meeting. The couple from Surrey, both 76, died after a head-on collision between a Jeep Cherokee and a gravel truck on 16 Avenue on Thursday afternoon. The two killed were inside the Jeep and police are saying the driver tried to pass another vehicle and crossed the centre line before crashing into the oncoming gravel truck. The head-on collision occurred just after 12:30 p.m., said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. The initial investigation indicates the driver of the Jeep tried to pass

Clark, Coleman ready to fight Premier speaks at Coleman appreciation barbecue in Langley Frank Bucholtz Times Reporter

The next provincial election isn’t until May 14, 2013, but that isn’t stopping Premier Christy Clark and her deputy, Rich Coleman, from full-fledged preparations. Coleman, who is the BC Liberals’ campaign chair, invited Clark to his annual supporters’ Christy appreciation barbecue at the farm of Dixie and Roy Jacobson on Sunday, and she was the centre of attention for most of the 600 or so in attendance. Both emphasized the election readiness of the BC Liberals and the fight they expect with the NDP, who have been leading in opinion polls for many months. “We are well-positioned and ready to go,” Coleman said. “I urge you to look past the

fluff of what the media says and look at the person. She deserves to be elected as premier in 2013.” “Our coalition believes in one thing — the power of free enterprise,” said Clark. “The power of a thriving private enterprise economy lifts everybody up. It makes sure our kids have opportunity. “No one reminds us of that better in caucus than Rich Coleman. “To him I say, ‘Big guy, you’ve really made a difference,’” she said. Clark acknowledged that it’s a “hard job” as premier, and Clark “unrewarding a lot premier of the time. “You get beat up every day.” She said she tried to weigh the risks and rewards as she considered running for the Liberal leadership in 2011, but said ultimately she thought of the example she was setting for her son. “What kind of example was I setting if I run away from a challenge? “That ultimately was the reason I decided to run.”

“What kind of example was I setting if I run away from a challenge?”

B.C. Premier Christy Clark spoke at Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman’s appreciation barbecue in Langley on Sunday.

Teens attack, rob man on scooter Teen strikes cancer victim repeatedly after man refuses to share his dinner; suspects flee with his wallet, four cans of beer and a bucket of chicken Langley RCMP are on the look out for five youths, one as young as 11, who are believed to be responsible for violently beating up and robbing a man who was riding his electric scooter at the time on Friday, Aug. 31. Between 4 and 5 p.m., the 47-year-old victim, who suffers from cancer, was travelling adjacent to Fraser Highway in Murrayville, using his electric scooter. He had purchased food for his dinner. As he turned into the walking path behind W.C. Blair Pool, he was confronted by a Caucasian male wearing a black hoody.

The male asked for a piece of the victim’s chicken and when his request was denied, four more males appeared. The victim attempted to leave the area, said police. However, he was struck repeatedly by the first male before falling into a dried-out fish pond nearby. The victim managed to strike his attacker on the back of the neck with his cane and took notice of a three digit numerical tattoo (possibly 762 or 742). The five males fled when a cyclist passed by on his bike.  The cyclist assisted the victim back to his scooter and left the area

without providing his name. The suspects are described as males between 11 and 16 years old. Four were Caucasian, and one was an Indo Canadian. The victim required a number of stitches at the hospital and sustained a black eye.  The suspects made off with his wallet, keys, four cans of beer and a bucket of chicken.  None of his attackers was known to him. If you have any information that would assist police with this investigation, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.  There are four ways to leave an anonymous tip with Crimestoppers. • call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477); • visit; • text BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637); • or visit metrovancouvercrimestoppers.

Woman airlifted to hospital after crash A Langley woman was taken to hospital by air ambulance after crashing into another vehicle at the intersection of 240 Street and 56 Avenue early this morning. Around 5:30 a.m., a northbound Cobalt collided with an eastbound Ford Explorer. The investigation suggests the driver of the Cobalt, the Langley woman, didn’t stop at the stop sign, said Langley RCMP.  The front end of the Cobalt crashed into the Explorer’s passenger side. The female driver was trapped inside her vehicle unresponsive but breathing, with bleeding from her head, said Langley Township fire department’s Bruce Ferguson. Township firefighters secured a landing site for an air ambulance to touch down on 52 Avenue, he said. The male driver of the Explorer was driven by ground ambulance to hospital, where he has been treated and released. Police continue to investigate and anticipate the Cobalt driver will be issued a violation ticket.

The American Heart Association has now advised limiting added sugars to 100 calories per day for BOB SANGHA women (6.5 teaspoons) and Pharmacist, BSc 150 calories for men (10 teaspoons). Time to read those food labels. Parents of young children generally do a good job of keeping dangerous items, such as drugs, out of the reach of young, curious fingers, but one in four Grandmas leave their medications where their grandchildren can get them. Emergency room visits due to accidental poisoning have become much more frequent in the last 10 years and the most commonly ingested drugs are pain-relievers, especially opiates and acetaminophen. Don’t let a visit to the grandparents become a tragic tale. Talk to our pharmacists about tips to improve the security of your medications while allowing you to access what you need.

According to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, a Canadian has a heart attack every seven minutes or a stroke every 10 minutes. Someone dies of either one every seven minutes! Ninety per cent of Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart attack/stroke. Many of these risk factors can be avoided (smoking, alcohol intake, physical inactivity) or managed (blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes). It’s up to you to decide which statistic you want to be. If you have a brother/sister who has had a stroke, you have a 60 per cent higher risk of having a stroke yourself. And, if that stroke occurred before the age 55, your risk goes up to 94 per cent. Although there is a strong genetic link in heart disease, nothing is written in stone and there are other risk factors to consider. So, if you’ve had a sibling with a stroke, use it as your incentive to get a handle on what you can change for the better.

Residents want calming measures put in place along 16 Avenue from PAGE 1

another vehicle across a double solid line heading west, crossing into the path of the eastbound gravel truck between 200 and 208 Streets. That section of 16 Avenue was closed for at least five hours as police investigated, said Marks. Police are hoping to speak to a driver of a smaller green car, possibly a Toyota Corolla. That driver was westbound on 16 Avenue at the time of the crash. Langley RCMP Victims Services was on scene to support witnesses and the driver of the gravel truck. The truck driver suffered minor injuries in the crash. For the past few months, numerous residents of 16 Avenue and surrounding areas have been calling for safety measures for the dangerous stretch of road that is the main route for all gravel trucks coming from Abbotsford into Langley and Surrey. Once speed humps were put on Zero Avenue, virtually all trucks opted for 16 Avenue. Residents have been calling for more speed enforcement

Police say the driver was attempting to pass another vehicle. for the gravel trucks and for the Township to create better safety measures like roundabouts at key intersections.

Residents warned to watch out for sob story

Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

The woman came to the door with a sob story about a sick baby that would draw at anyone’s heart strings. Now Langley RCMP are looking for the 20-something fraudster. On Sept. 5, an overweight woman in her late 20s arrived at several doorsteps in the neigh-

bourhood of 264 Street and 56 Avenue, claiming to be a neighbour down the street who has been locked out of the house by accident and needs to use the victim’s phone. She tells her victims that her baby is very sick and urgently in need of medicine. The woman then gives quite a story and says she doesn’t have enough money to pay for the medications and

requests a loan, said Langley RCMP. The fraudster may elaborate on the ruse stating that her family is out of town and unable to assist. As she departs, she may even provide an ‘IOU’, a phone number and a promise to return. Needless to say, she doesn’t return. One victim even offered to drive the woman to the pharmacy to get the medication. The fraud-

ster said it wasn’t necessary. One victim gave $100 to the woman and another gave $60. The suspect had her hair in a ponytail and wore beige shorts and a black shirt. Police continue to investigate to identify the woman responsible for this fraud. “While it is commendable for us to want to help those in need, it’s a sad reality that there are

those out there who take advantage,” said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. “It is your good will these fraudsters are preying upon. There is a variety of community and social services available to assist people with legitimate predicaments.” If you have information for the police about this woman call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

He said that the LEC expansion costs will be included in the 2013 budget. Asked in an interview why a public announcement was not made until work had begun, Froese said, “That’s a good question,” noting that final approval was given on July 23, the last meeting before council’s six-week break. Several council members, including Froese, immediately left for holidays abroad. “We didn’t expect it to go that fast,” Froese said of the process, “and I should have asked for a resolution. It was unfortunate, the six week break.” In his Monday night statement, Froese said: “As members of council, we were unable to release any of this information as we are bound by legislation regarding confidentiality of ‘in closed’ meetings . . .

Part of the proceeds, however, had been earmarked to finance the purchase of the vacant Alder-

grove Elementary school property where the Township plans to build a new ice rink (to replace Aldergrove Civic Arena), pool and community centre. “The LEC expansion and the Aldergrove Recreation Centre are both moving ahead concurrently as two separate projects,” he said.

multi-year plan of disposing of land assets that are surplus to the Township’s needs. “The taxpayers will not be shouldering the capital cost of these projects,” Froese said. The LEC expansion will not impact taxpayers, as operational costs will be absorbed by using existing LEC staff and increased revenue. However, there will be a cost to taxpayers to cover some of the operating expenses of the Aldergrove Recreation Centre, which will be built into subsequent budgets, he said. Council’s lack of public consultation was condemned by Councillor Kim Richter. In a letter to the editor (Secret spending smells, Sept. 13), Richter slammed the decision, saying it was “highly unethical, if not illegal.” In a letter to the editor in today’s Times (page 9), Councillor Grant Ward takes Richter to task, and calls the facility “the crown jewel” in Township’s parks and recreation division. Froese’s comments came only hours after the LEC announced that tickets will go on sale at 11 a.m. on Thursday, (Sept. 20) for one of the centre’s biggest draws since it was opened three years ago: The Holiday Festival on Ice Tour, bringing to Langley some of the top skaters Canada has produced: Joannie Rochette, Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko and Jeffery Buttle.

No parole for Brookswood murderer

The man convicted of the 1992 murder of a 24-year-old woman in her Brookswood apartment has been granted a 60-day unescorted absence from his prison on Vancouver Island. However, Wayne Alexander Perkin was denied day parole, and his application for a temporary unescorted absence so that he could expand his participation in Alcoholic Anonymous was also denied. In June, 1992, Perkin stabbed Angela Richards 12 times in her apartment on 200 Street, near 40 Avenue. Perkin and his wife lived in an apartment across the hall. Richards had moved in only the previous month, and had planned to train as a helicopter pilot. In May, 1994, Perkin was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 18 years. A parole board hearing report noted that Perkin, now 63, is serving time for the murder of Richards, as well as gross indecency, a crime he committed in 1995, and aggravated assault and kidnap and confinement, in 1987. In its report, the National Parole Board noted that Perkin, a Metis, is the product of a “highly dysfunctional and violent upbringing.” As a young boy, Perkin was placed in a Christian residential training school where he was abused. He began associating with an older, negative peer group in order to ‘fit it,’ and, the board noted, admitted he was living a criminal lifestyle. The board report noted: “At your hearing, you acknowledged you committed more crimes than your record shows, including an assault on your best friend. You said you felt rejected and that you were an angry and self-centred person who cared little for others. You said you took a victim stance, believing everyone owed you.” The reported noted that Perkin admitted to “power and control issues,” had negative attitudes towards women, and suffered depression and loneliness. Among the risk factors that still remain are substance abuse, unresolved emotional issues, and anger stemming from his childhood. Perkin has already been given several escorted temporary absences, with positive feedback, the report stated. Now in a minimum security facility, Perkin’s attitude “is described as positive and (he) avoids the negative subculture” in his prison. The report noted that he has embraced his Metis roots, become more involved with the Native brotherhood, and is more actively involved with First Nations activities.

The Liberals still face an uphill battle in getting re-elected. The NDP is polling well, getting roughly twice the support that the Liberals are getting in recent polls. However, the most recent poll, which was published last week, showed the Liberals gaining a small amount of support, with the NDP slipping slightly. This is simply one poll, and polling results are becoming less and less reliable, as the Alberta and Quebec elections this year have illustrated. However, the Liberals will do even better if the BC Conservatives, who have taken a significant amount of support away from them, falter. The Conservatives are holding a meeting this Saturday in Langley, and one item on the agenda is a confidence vote on John Cummins’ leadership. Should he not receive the backing of almost all the membership, the Conservatives will be thrown into chaos. While such a scenario seems unlikely, the Conservatives have a history of internal revolts and leadership dissatisfaction. If there is a significant split at the meeting, the Liberals will only gain. A third factor is Premier Christy Clark herself. While Clark has taken plenty of heat, she showed on Sunday at Rich Coleman’s annual barbecue that she has a good ability to campaign and communicate. This is something Coleman and others have said — Clark is a good campaigner, and is an effective match for NDP leader Adrian Dix. This will be a significant factor as people make their minds up. Another factor is that Dix and his party have been in the lead (in the polls) for a long period. The NDP is releasing almost no policy information, and this gap in information is causing more and more questions to be asked about the party’s actual agenda. These questions raise doubts in the minds of swing voters. Should this lack of information about what an NDP government would be likely to do continue into the winter months, the Liberals may see their fortunes rise even more. Six months is a long time in politics, and next May’s election is even further away. It is very likely that by next spring, the BC Liberals and NDP will be much more competitive than they are at present.

hen Richmond’s Yau Chun Stuart Chan was sentenced to two years less a day in jail for the Sept. 15, 2002 driving-related death of RCMP Const. Jimmy Ng, the court made it clear what debt he owed to society. A decade later, Ng’s parents are still grieving in a way only other parents who have lost a child can relate to, and gnawing at them is the fact that Chan didn’t fulfill one of his most important commitments. Chan turned 29 last month, but it remains to be seen whether he’s really matured. He’s certainly not the freshly-minted 19-year-old, who got behind the wheel of his newly purchased Honda Civic Si-R and drove at 130 kilometres per hour through a red light, killing Ng who was in a police cruiser while out on community patrols. Today, Chan lives a relatively anonymous existence in Richmond. Somehow, through a justice system that simply dropped the ball, Chan was allowed to avoid making a streetracing related presentation to his high school peers, as he’d once promised. While indicating to a probation officer that he was ready to give the presentation, Chan suddenly stopped answering his phone, and couldn’t be reached. As soon as his sentence was completed, there was no legal mechanism remaining to force him to make that presentation. It’s something that Ng’s parents, Dr. Chris and Therese Ng, wanted to witness but never happened. But it’s not too late. If Chan has become a man, he can finally give some closure to a couple who is now childless by displaying some maturity and fulfilling that promise made so long ago. As every day passes, he’s again thumbing his nose at the court system, the community, the memory of Jimmy Ng and of course his parents. There’s a saying that a man is only as good as his word. Until that street racing presentation happens, Chan’s debt to society will remain unpaid. —Richmond Review The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Ward explains council’s LEC decision Editor: As a proud member who served in the RCMP for over 22 years, I thought I was used to just about anything that human nature could throw at me. As the oldest elected councillor (noting that Councillor Steve Ferguson is the longest serving) in Langley Township, I have seen things that I never imagined, but every once in a while something still surprises me. Luckily I am at the stage of life where I can call ’em as I see ’em. Fundamentally, I think it is a good thing for politicians to disagree. The process of debate can lead to a better decision as all sides of an issue are fleshed out. When I disagree with a council mate, I assume that they are acting genuinely and honestly and looking after the best interests of the community. Thus it was with extreme disappointment that I reviewed Councillor Kim Richter’s surprising and distorted comments about the Langley Events Centre (LEC) expansion (letters, The Times, Sept. 13). It appears that there is a tendency among some in Langley that if you disagree with them it is not because you may have a different vision, purpose or direction, but it’s because you must be engaging in secrets, you’re unethical or you’re diverting money from somewhere else. Or you simply make statements to label your opposition, to generally indicate they are bad persons, because there’s nothing that can go on without there being a secret or hidden agenda, or some other nefarious purpose. They are doing bad things to the community that only the ‘whistleblower’ can save. This all appears to be a throwback to times gone by that I thought we had learned from. Those times were proven to be bad for this town, and did not add any value to our community. It’s a shame that we resort to labelling people, rather than commenting on the merits of their argument. Instead, let’s talk about the crown jewel of the Township’s Recreation Culture and Parks Division, specifically our marvelous LEC. LEC has been an unprecedented success. It is used by more people and on

more days than almost any other facility in the Fraser Valley. Yes, there are bigger facilities, but I don’t think there are any finer ones. So, what has council been up to? Well, with all this success, and with the opportunity to try to expand that success and take care of additional users, who may or may not be financial partners, we embarked upon an expansion. This expansion will not cost $7.25 million, but will in fact cost $7.725 million. Was this a surprise? Hardly. Anyone who has seen the LEC knows its amazing success. In fact, I can think back to about June 11 (not July 23) when these discussions began with a certain urgency, because if we wanted to have the facility fully functional for a number of events starting next year, and accommodate new potential partners such as Wrestling BC, BC Lacrosse Association, Volleyball Canada, and others, we had to get down to work and get on to it. Now a fair question is — how are we going to pay for this expansion, or will it actually detract from other projects? The answer is, we’ll pay for it from land sales and reserves, and no, it won’t delay or defer other projects. We need to work on projects that balance the entire community and cannot simply work in one area to the detriment of the others. So as a consequence, when we develop our budgets we make sure that we have envelopes, or categories or accounts, if you will, that we can use to meet changing or moving priorities. Do we seek to avoid those? Of course, but when opportunities arrive, as when we were able to receive a $15 million grant from the province for the LEC, we need to have the ability to seize on those. Now why did this process start out behind closed doors? Well, part of the revenue to build both the facility at LEC and in Aldergrove will come from land sales. The Community Charter is quite clear that discussions on land sales at least have to begin in a closed session, so that no other parties are given an unfair advantage in knowing what lands may be available for sale.

If a local government sells lands in one area or buys in another, it can affect market conditions and it was with that backdrop that the process began. Why not go through a lengthy period of public comment? Well, ordinarily when you are going to repair or expand an existing facility because it is bursting at the seams with use, you have a Councillor pretty good idea in terms of Grant what the demands are on that Ward facility and what people are going to say. It may not be the best route to go and sometimes we do make mistakes, however I am satisfied we made the right decision at the right time because our priority is to be able to see kids on the courts or using gymnasiums before the next season. As a consequence, when the decision was made to proceed, staff worked quite expeditiously and went through a process with council’s explicit authorization to obtain bids on the building, as we do in almost all situations. Don’t get caught in the semantics or the niceties or the twists of some fine words. Instead focus on the needs, process and the results. How will this proceed without affecting other projects? Well, part of the land sale discussions involve a multi-year process to dispose of assets, some of which will go through a rezoning process, to ensure that we have funds available to maximize our returns and can contribute to amenities in all facets of the Township. You can alarm people by saying that the money is going someplace else or it’s not necessary, or there is a hidden agenda, but in so doing you need to provide credible examples and alternatives or other solutions. Taxes will not go up for the capital costs of these projects. Services will not be reduced. Certain areas will not be favoured over others. And our youth, adults, and seniors will have facilities that they can use. Perhaps the most alarming comment was “if we had this extra money, why didn’t we fast-track the new pool in Aldergrove instead?” Well, again we

know what the needs are in Willoughby, but are accused of going ahead without public consultation. Yet we are supposed to be able to fast-track the Aldergrove project without public consultation, and that is fine? Public consultation is underway, and there is still a great deal of debate about what needs to be built in Aldergrove. We just went through a period of “ready, shoot, aim” politics and it saddens me to think that we may be returning to that. I am not perfect, my council mates are not perfect, but I think we all try to act in the best interests of the community. When I disagree with my council mates who include teachers, retired police officers, and farmers, I assume that it’s an honest and sincere disagreement and don’t try to label them as being bad people, or doing bad things for ulterior motives. That has not been my experience in Langley. Councillor Richter has said several negative and derogatory things about me, but I am not going to say or even suggest those things about her. I actually think she is a very intelligent person who is probably embarking upon a path that she thinks will better the community. She may be right. Nevertheless, I would encourage her to stop labelling people with whom she disagrees, and instead take a positive approach. If indeed she wishes to become mayor, she should run a mayoral campaign at the right time, that is within a reasonable period prior to the next election, and not try to denigrate and diminish this fine community by making outlandish allegations, which are often incorrect. She should instead lay out a platform or direction which is better than what we are doing now. If in fact she has a better idea than what we are doing, if we can improve how we can deliver projects and services in a more efficient manner, I am certainly willing to listen. I just hope that she is willing to listen and recognize our Langley Township deserves better. Councillor Grant Ward, Langley Township

Editor: Enough is enough. It’s time to get truck traffic, all truck traffic, off the rural road that is 16 Avenue and onto Fraser Highway, which was designed for trucks. The fatality involving two people on Thursday, whose vehicle was hit head-on by a dump truck, just west of 208 Street, is the final straw.

We have seen at least one major incident per month along 16 Avenue since moving into the area in March, 2011, with the vast majority related to trucks (including one that ended up in our friend’s yard along 16 Avenue near 212 Street). The road is simply not designed for trucks, nor are the drivers of these vehi-

cles respecting required speeds for their vehicles on this narrow roadway. Please get involved in any initiative, voting or pressure on your local politicians to take 16 Avenue out of truck route designation. This has worked on other roads in the Lower Mainland and lives have been saved. There is no need for

trucks on 16 Avenue, other than local deliveries. It has become a short-cut by those wishing to avoid Fraser Highway and 0 Avenue (now that traffic calming is in place on the latter). No more lives need be lost. Michael Davies, Langley

Lions’ Buono set to speak at gala Miranda Gathercole Times Reporter

Beyond the intense competition, athletic training, concentration and determination, playing team sports is ultimately built on the foundation of establishing relationships and creating a community. This concept will be the main focus tomorrow night (Sept. 19) at the fourth annual Sports Heroes Dinner benefiting the PuCKS (Promoting Community through Kids in Sports)

program. The gala, being held at the Langley Events Centre, is welcoming BC Lions general manager and vice-president Wally Buono and CEO and president Dennis Skulsky for an evening of discussion about the role of sports in strengthening individuals and ultimately a community. “Wally and Dennis are going to come and talk about the importance of team, their stories on being management and administrators of a high-level

sports team, and how team and relationships are so key and foundational to that as well,” said Connie Klimek, founder and executive director of PuCKS. PuCKS is a non-profit society that promotes kids either financially in-need, behaviourally at-risk, or recently re-settled in Canada to do well in school through the motivation of sports. All of the roughly 120 student members must participate in their special Lit-Fit program twice a week after school to do

Then as a reward, these kids have their sporting gear, registration, instruction and time playing completely covered by PuCKS. The gala will also focus on the mentorship program between the students in the PuCKS program and volunteers from Trinity Western University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Students and mentors will share their stories on their experiences with each other through the program. “It’s extremely entertaining, but there’s one side of it that is extremely moving. It’s very real because you get the authentic stories from the kids,” Klimek said. Ron Knight, owner of two McDonalds restaurants in Langley, will also make a presentation on the success of many students from PuCKS who are now working for him. “You just get so inspired, because you can really see it making a difference,” Klimek said. “A lot of these kids are refugees, so many have come from war torn countries with people shooting at them, they couldn’t speak English three years ago, and now they’re working at McDonalds. That’s because of PuCKS. It’s amazing.”

Burying wires could cost couple $84,000

Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

Somebody at Township council’s July 9 meeting murmured something about the overhead wires in Fort Langley being part of the village’s heritage. But whether or not they have historic value, the wires are coming down, at least along a 540 metre stretch of Glover Road and one block of Mavis Avenue, if a petition succeeds. Council authorized staff to distribute a petition to the affected property owners, and proceed with the necessary bylaws, including one that spells out who will pay for the work. With one exception, all the properties in the area are commercial. The single oddity is a residence whose owners face a big bill that they say will be impossible to pay, if the petition succeeds.

On Sept. 10, Arica Appleton-Suomi and her husband, told council that if the petition is successful, their share of the cost will be $84,309, plus expenses associated with on-site work. Even spread out over a number of years, the sum would be impossible to pay, they said. Furthermore, Appleton-Suomi argued, the financial burden would make it impossible to sell the house, which is at 23358 Mavis Ave. The proposal to bury the wires and remove the poles was made by the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association. A preliminary petition was signed by owners representing 51.5 per cent of the properties and 53.4 per cent of the assessed property values within the benefitting area. This result meets the regulatory test required for a successful petition.

A report to council outlines the expense: $3 million, almost one-third of which will be paid by property owners. Taxpayers will absorb a little over $1 million. As the power poles also carry streetlights, the removal of the poles will necessitate a new streetlight system. The affected area is Glover Road from just south of 96 Avenue to the Jacob Haldi Bridge, and Mavis Street to River Road. The couple has the support of the BIA whose president, Eric Woodward, told council that the BIA supports the couple’s request to be excluded from the petition area. “It’s not acceptable to impose this cost,” Woodward said, adding that the petition process cannot be stopped. Asked by Councillor Kim Richter if the BIA would be willing to underwrite the cost, Woodward replied, “I can’t say at this time.”

A Langley RCMP officer made an arrest after swimming the Nicomekl River last week. Langley RCMP were called to an underground parking lot in the 21000 block of 56 Avenue, on Tuesday. Sept. 11, after a woman witnessed two men attempting to break into her vehicle. She told police a friend had chased the two would-be thieves from the building. They later attempted to break into a second vehicle, and fled on foot. Lower Mainland Police Dog Services (PDS) attended and a track was immediately established north on 211 Street, into thick brush and a swampy field on the edge of the Nicomekl River. One of the suspects was located on the east side of the river and an officer needed to wade in and swim to the other side of the river to arrest him. A 40-year-old Langley man was arrested for break and enter and mischief. He appeared in court Wednesday.

“You can give your kitchen a whole new look just by changing the countertops, sink and hardware. Often, new countertops can make tired, old cabinetry, really pop, especially if you choose a stone that will compliment them. Or, if you are wanting to add more space to fit things in your kitchen, you can simply add some new drawers, a pantry or an island, if space available.” And what’s the hottest kitchen trend for fall? “Quartz countertops,” says Nicky. “Quartz is very popular product nowadays, with more people leaning towards it over granite. Not only does quartz have a sleeker design, but it’s less porous making

it more durable than most stones and we sell it for only $45 sq. ft installed!” Nicky encourages anyone ready to update their kitchen to stop by the Langley showrooms today and speak to one of Cowry’s experienced designers for firstrate advice on your fall kitchen project.

home a Fall face lift

Give your

by Kristyl Clark

Every season brings the promise of fresh new beginnings and the desire to update one’s wardrobe as well as their surroundings – fall is no exception. With the crisp air and rich hues of autumn upon us, now is the time to swap sunscreen, sandals and breezy summer decor for cozy luxurious fabrics and a warm and inviting home front. While it can be costly and time consuming to renovate, there are several little ways that one can make a big visual impact without breaking the bank. After chatting with several Langley home experts, we've compiled the following four tips to help you give your living space a little face lift:

LIGHTEN UP - With the days getting shorter and the temperature starting to dip, nothing adds more brightness and warmth to one's living space than great lighting. Lighting can make a house into a home and will allow the personality of the owner to shine through, according to Krista Graham of Design Lighting at 5499 192 St. in Surrey "Getting the lighting right is essential if we are to make the most of our homes," said Graham, who notes that good lighting will set the tone and create the atmosphere in a room. "For example, a laundry or utility room will be well-served with glare free compact fluorescent, whereas a study will require particular attention to task lighting." Being able to control lighting is essential to any domestic scheme, according to Graham. "Dimming a lighting circuit adds instant flexibility and mood lighting to the simplest of schemes. Even in the simplest room use a dimmer for instant flexibility." RAVISHING RUGS - Want to protect floors from daily traffic, add a splash of colour and texture? An area rug is one of the simplest and cost effective ways to warm up your living space, while saving your floors from daily wear and tear. Nasim Qasemali, the owner of Ariana Oriental Rug Corp. on 20250 Fraser Hwy. in Langley, encourages anyone in the market for a new rug to invest in one made of a high-quality wool that will stand the test of time and fashion, rather than purchase a cheaper make. "It's better to spend a bit of money because once a synthetic rug is damaged or stained, you cannot replace it and it will really take away from your whole decor scheme if it gets ruined," said Qasemali. "If you have a good one that's easy to maintain, you won't have a problem with the look for your room for a long time." With the 'open concept' home hotter than ever, Qasemali said an area rug can be a simple and convenient way to divide your living space. "Nowadays, most homes have all hardwood floors and cabinets of the same colour. An area rug can bring some colour and life to your home and bring a totally different view to each room." ACCENT YOUR HOME - Adding even something small into your space like an accent piece can make a big difference, but new doesn't mean you need to hit the mall. Carrie Lee Thachuk, the owner of The Passionate Home in Downtown Langley is all about mixing the new with the old to create happiness and beauty in the home. Whether it's a 'new' vase, chair, pillow or mirror, Thachuk encourages those who are about to update their home with accent pieces to shop vintage, or better yet, show what you already own. "Take a walk around your home and see if there is something you already own that might work in your new space... just one accent piece can really give a room a face lift because you will likely end up rearranging everything around it." If you find your home lacking of anything inspiring, The Passionate Home is filled with treasures and one-of-a-kind items that have been reclaimed and repurposed into beautiful, unique decor items for your home.

Maximize & Organize Your living space by Kristyl Clark

With the cost of living at an all-time high in B.C and the average size of homes shrinking, most homeowners are left with limited living space. While having small square footage can present a challenge when it comes to staying organized, it can be easily overcome, according to Michelle Carnaby of STOR-MORE Closets & Blinds at 19231 54 Ave. in Surrey. “There are a lot of simple storage solutions that can help you keep all of your things in order.’’ There’s no better place to get started on clearing out the clutter than your bedroom closet, which can often become a wasteland of forgotten, ill-fitting clothes, lost Christmas gifts and tangled neck ties. “Everyone is trying to be a minimalist as much as possible and a well-organized closet can eliminate the need for extra bedroom furniture,” said Carnaby, who notes that a well-organized closet is always in fashion. “A closet solution is pretty much there for the length of how long you own your house until you want to upgrade.” The sky is the limit when it comes to creating the closet of one’s dreams, but it all depends on how much homeowners are willing to spend. “There are several ways of organizing what you have by putting in open shelving, or, if you want to hide your mess, we can put in closed doors and even a tilt-out laundry hamper in the back wall of the closet or in an island… there is no wall in a closet that is unusable.” A new feature that has proven popular with homeowners is a pull-out pant rack, according to Carnaby who has one in her own closet. “This is one of my favourite options to organize pants. Rather than having a ton of messy hangers, the pull-out rack can fit up to 20 pairs and won’t leave a creases.” For the shoe-a-holic, STOR -MORE offers a wide range of solutions to keep their beloved footwear collection on display or hidden away in baskets or cubbies. “There isn’t an inch of space that we can’t maximize.”

Making your home more energy-efficient starts with some great new windows. Craig Lovell of A1 Windows has some tips.

You will depend on them to help keep the heat in your home inside, but you should also be able to depend on them to save you some money on your energy bill. “There are typically annual savings of 10 to 20 per cent,”

Working out at home Summer isn’t the only time you should be thinking about buying some fitness equipment. By Kerry Vital

Gordon Wilson of G. Wilson Construction says that the new owners of this Point Grey house lived in the area and had always admired the home. However, the property was overgrown so they needed a lot of professional help to restore it to its former glory. Martin Knowles photo

Bringing new life to a run-down home G. Wilson Construction works with architect Sean Ruf to restore a house from 1932. By Maggie Calloway What do you do when you buy a fantastic one-acre lot in a prime area of Point Grey which comes complete with a very large home? What if the house hasn’t been updated for scores of years, if in fact nature is trying it’s best to take back the land by sending saplings and various botanical specimens through any crack she can find including a tree growing out of a couch on the

top floor? You make the decision to strip back the house to its bones and rebuild if you are the client of G. Wilson Construction! “This home of approximately 5,000 square feet was originally built by the grandfather of the woman from whom the house and property was purchased; she had lived in the house her whole life, so it had been in the same family since it was built in 1932,” says Wilson. “The house was designed by the same team that designed the Marine Building, McCarter & Nairne and located in what must have been countryside at the time.” The footprint of the house stayed the same and the exterior of the building was not changed. A few areas had to be rebuilt and some of the

dormers were rotten but they were rebuilt to be identical to the originals. “Our clients lived in the area and used to walk by this house a lot, and always admired the house. The house was obviously in disrepair with old cars in the driveway, the property was overgrown and the roof was rotten but they felt there was something charming about it and they could just see what it could become,” Wilson says. “We originally walked through the house, which was a disaster but we could see passed it and saw the house was basically straight and it had stood the test of time. The interior needed

The holiday season is coming, and you’re pretty sure you’ll be indulging in some delicious food. But the holiday weight gain isn’t inevitable. Investing in some home gym equipment might be just the thing you need to prevent those pounds from sneaking on this year. “What you need is specific to the goals of the individual,” says Dai Manuel, chief operating officer for Fitness Town. “I recommend at least one resistance and one cardio (machine).” Cardio machines include treadmills, elliptical trainers, rowing machines and stationary bikes. Treadmills and ellipticals are still hugely popular, but recently Manuel has seen an increase in functional training machines, which allow you to do several exercises with the same piece of equipment. “They’re awesome machines,” he says. “They’re all-in-one and versatile.” A current trend in fitness, whether it’s at the gym or

Come home to natural gas Natural gas offers comfort, convenience and value Your home is perhaps your most important investment. It costs money to maintain it, and needs energy to run it. By choosing the right energy for the right use, you can maximize energy efficiency and value for your energy dollars.

And, with the variety of stylish natural gas appliances and rebates available, upgrading your appliances to natural gas is more affordable. Find energy efficiency rebates that meet your needs at

Natural gas makes your summers seem endless A natural gas barbecue never runs out of fuel. If you have a natural gas patio heater or fire pit, you can stay outside long after summer‘s over. And when that blustery storm hits, you can stay warm and well fed with a natural gas fireplace and range. Both will continue working during a power outage. For comfort, convenience and value balance your home’s energy mix with natural gas. Visit to watch our video on how natural gas fits into your everyday life.

G. Wilson Construction takes house down to the studs to create new paradise “ from page.1 major work including electrical and plumbing to bring it up to code but with the exception of ... some of the rooms (being) opened up to bring in more light and to create larger rooms, the layout remained the same.” The house has three floors, with the bedrooms on the top floor and some in the typical old unfinished basement of the era which had lower ceilings. “No question it was a challenge, 5,000 square feet of a complete gut job and renovation and the clients wanted to take residence in eight months,” says Wilson. “A further surprise was the clients decided they wanted the basement lowered three feet to make it usable, all in the same eight months. The approach we take on a project this size, after we have documented every detail, is to remove everything that can be reused, repaired or salvaged. Anything we didn’t reuse which still had some life in it was donated.” They took down all the light fixtures and sent to them off to storage. The beautiful front staircase was completely covered with plywood to protect it from any damage. The fireplaces were protected in place and a few other features were removed and catalogued. All the interior doors and hardware were removed and stored. When that was done they went in and completely gutted the house right down to the studs. “We then brought in the structural engineers and they went through what was required to bring the house up to twenty-first century standards,” Wilson says. “Next we removed all the electrical wiring and all the plumbing. All the mechanics were removed including a big old boiler in the basement covered in asbestos.” Once the house was rewired, replumbed and all new mechanics installed it was on to

the good stuff. The kitchen is very modern but really works. The kitchen is one of the areas of the house where walls were removed to create a larger space. The old kitchen, dinette and dining room became the new kitchen and dining room. “Sean (Ruf), the architect, did an amazing job bringing the house up to the twenty-first century but at the same time leaving the timeless elegance of the era,” Wilson says. “Even in the kitchen, which is very modern, the hardware on the doors is the original and it just looks fantastic next to this streamlined room.” Well done to all who worked on this project and the owners who fell in love and had the sensibility to see past the surface and were willing to invest.

The exterior of the house, above, was not touched except to repair anything that was rotten. The new kitchen, below, is modern and sleek, while the new bathroom, left, and living area, below left, fit perfectly in this beautiful house. Submitted photo left, all others Martin Knowles photos

A window on the world “ from page.1 says Craig Lovell, sales manager at A1 Windows. However, the cost savings aren’t the only concern when you’re thinking about replacing old windows. “Many people are replacing single-glazed aluminum windows with energy-efficient vinyl frames, (which increases) their personal comfort and health by preventing drafts, condensation and potential mold or mildew growth,” says Lovell. “Not only are old metal frames greater conductors of heat, they are also doing a great job of conducting noise as well. Newer frames and double-glazing can significantly reduce the noise on the inside of a home or an apartment.” Lovell also notes that many older windows don’t meet current building requirements, so they can be a safety issue if not replaced. If you’re concerned about the sun doing damage to your skin, the energy-efficient coating on new windows also offers protection from harmful UV rays. When you’re considering replacing your windows, it’s best to think about a few things first. “The objective should be to get the overall best value for your budget,” says Lovell. “To do this it is always best to have a knowledgeable salesperson review the options with you at your home.” Good companies will offer free in-home estimates, which will give you a better idea of what is in store for you. A great thing about this type of renovation is how quickly your new windows will be installed, usually within a day. “People are often surprised at how quick it can be,” says Lovell. With many different options available to you, it’s best to consider the type of glass and type of frame that you are looking for.

Products ❱❱ QuAlified trAdes ❱❱ exPert Advice ❱❱

“Typically vinyl frames offer the best overall value for their insulation properties and price,” says Lovell. “It is now possible to get good quality painted vinyl that allows you to get creative if you wish.” When energy efficiency is on the top of your list, the glass makes a difference as well. “The number of panes of glass combined with reflective coatings and an inert gas fill such as Argon between the panes provides increased energy efficiency,” Lovell says. The installation of your windows also must be taken into account, since everything can be undone if it’s not completed properly. “Poor installation can negate superior window performance,” says Lovell. “Unless you are doing extensive renovations it is often best to have one company to do both the supply and the installation. They are the ones most familiar with their products and will often warranty not only the product but their installation for a period of years.” Government grants and rebates for installing energy-efficient windows are available through BC Hydro’s LiveSmart program. The ENERGY STAR system rates windows by zone, with the Lower Mainland being Zone A. Installing a window that is rated for this zone will garner you a rebate, but Lovell recommends installing a window rated for one zone higher, which will give you an even better rebate. “It doubles the rebate” per window, he says, “from $30 to $60.” Energy efficiency is a growing trend in both new home construction and renovations, but it is more than a passing fad. Keeping your energy costs low will save you money in the long run as well as protecting the planet.

When you’re considering replacing your windows to increase the energy efficiency of your home, it’s best to take a look at several factors, including the type of glass and the frame.

Adding a few decorative accents an easy change By Maggie Calloway If you want to personalize your home or you are in the process of looking for a new one, don’t be discouraged by the endless “sameness” of home after home. By some very simple applications of mouldings or baseboards, you can take a plain Jane home from boring to wow! Don’t make the mistake of thinking great crown moulding, baseboards and all endless permutations are only for big stately homes; you can put your stamp on your present home by some pretty simple but effective applications. Terry Cook, the manager of Nucasa – The Finishing Touch is an expert on finding the perfect combination for your home. “Crown mouldings work extremely well on eight-foot-ceilings, as do baseboards; they just need to be proportionate,” he says. “On an eight-foot ceiling you probably want to stay within 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches, 5 1/4” maximum for the ceiling but the ideal is the 4 1/4 crown moulding. ... Then you would complement that with a 4 1/4 to a 5 1/4 to as low as a 3 1/4 baseboard; don’t go any lower because it would get lost and if you go higher it’s too loud and out of proportion.” Let’s not forget door and window casings. Both present more opportunities to add depth. There are a number of applications, including rosettes. These squares of wood with a pattern, applied to the top corners of a door frame, make a huge difference when coupled with plinths at the bottom. The plinths stand about six inches tall and together with the rosettes they look stunning, taking the ordinary to the extraordinary.

“Another way to dress a doorway is the application of a header, with or without a plinth,” says Cook. “A header is a build-up of a crown mould along the top and past the casing. The header can be as plain or as detailed as you wish. One thing homeowners should keep in mind when going this route is you should follow suit throughout the whole house.” Another point to keep in mind is to stay true to your personal style. If you are comfortable with a minimalist style your mouldings should reflect that. Concrete floors and countertops are wonderful but when coupled with fancy moulding, it’s more than a little jarring. The good news is there is a product for every wish list and probably some you haven’t dreamed of yet.

Terry Cook of Nucasa says that crown moulding and baseboards aren’t just for grand mansions. Even adding some depth to the ceiling, left and above left, can make a difference. Martin Knowles photos

Saving yourself from stress when building onto your home By Kerry Vital Your home is looking a bit crowded lately, and now you’re considering building an addition. Perhaps your family has grown in recent years, or you just want a bit of extra space for entertaining. There are many things to consider when undertaking such a project, but John Friswell of CCI Renovations has some tips for homeowners. “You need to ensure you have enough space,” he says. Municipalities have different rules for the height and width of a structure, so it is important to do some research before deciding on what the addition will look like. Figuring out your budget is also important before you start speaking to renovation companies. “Budget expectations are wide and varied,” says Friswell. “It’s dependent on site, structure and what you’re putting in it. Bedrooms and living rooms are cheaper, while kitchens and bathrooms are more expensive.” As to whether you will be able to live in your home during the construction, Friswell says it depends on the type of reno-

vation. If you will be working on a master bedroom and ensuite that only connects to a hallway, that will be a different story than building another wing from scratch. “We always recommend that owners might want to head out,” he says. “It can be a lot of stress and a lot of mess for them.” When deciding on a design for your new project, it’s best to look at what you like and dislike about your current house. “We go through a questionnaire to find out their thoughts,” Friswell says. “We need to know why they’re doing a renovation. Usually it’s because they don’t have enough space.” Whether you’re expanding the living area or adding a bathroom, discussing your plans with a professional and doing your research will stand you in good stead. While it can be a long process, ending up with a home you love is never time or money wasted.

Accessorizing the bathroom easier than ever

The Langley Times • Tuesday, September 18, 2012 • R7 27

By Kerry Vital The fixtures in your bathroom are looking dated, or perhaps you’ve moved into an older home and want to give it an update. You’re contemplating replacing them with something new, but there’s a number of choices available, and you’re not sure where to start. Perhaps it’s best to get the advice of a professional. “You need to trust the sales staff,” says Shelli Auclair, showroom manager for Universal Supply. The sales staff at Universal Supply’s Artistic Baths showrooms all have over 10 years experience with helping customers find their perfect fit, so taking advantage of their expertise will give you some peace of mind. “Our people can read blueprints and know building codes,” Auclair says. “We’ve seen some bad design out there.

Finding an oasis of calm in the midst of a busy life By Maggie Calloway Long gone are the days when bathrooms were pretty basic, even utilitarian, rooms. Now we have in-home spa bathrooms with steam showers, huge walk-in rain head showers, heated towel bars and wall-to-wall granite or marble. Even if you are not in the market for all the bells and whistles, it is possible to have an inviting bathroom that not only services your family but is attractive to a possible future buyer. Mike Merakian of Blue Ocean Construction not only builds custom bathrooms but also installs scores of bathrooms for Home Depot so his experience is varied and substantial. “Obviously it all depends on the customer’s taste and budget; that is the starting point,” he says. He’s noticed that there are several recent trends. “For Home Depot we install soaker tubs, 90 per cent of the bathrooms have tile on the walls and we are doing more and more all-inone vanities. These vanities have the sink and the counter all-in-one; it’s a step that saves time and money and they are very attractive, like a piece of furniture,” he says. “Being able to fit this unit into the bathroom and just connect the plumbing is a huge time saver. Rather than ordering various parts, such as sink and counter which could take weeks to arrive, this new all-in-one system is very efficient.” Gone are the days of placing tile directly onto the walls in the shower stall and bath. Now membranes called a Schluter system, specially made for water resistance, are carefully installed seamlessly, before tiling, to prevent water leakage and mold. “There are other methods of water proofing, of course, in fact we now have five or six different applications we can use on shower

All-in-one vanities, above, are a rising trend in spa-like bathrooms. Mike Merakian of Blue Ocean Construction says that soaker tubs, bottom right, are one of the top sellers right now. Submitted photos

walls where ten years ago we just had two. Whatever method is used, it is the most important part of renovating anywhere there is water and humidity,” says Merakian. If you are building a custom bathroom the sky is the limit, Merakian says. “Custom showers and steam showers with frameless glass are big. Heated floors are huge; we used to use coil pads but by running wire and covering with a skim coat of concrete we have more flexibility. Niches in the shower stalls for shampoo and such, sometimes with custom shapes, are once again popular.” Even the sealing of the grout has come a

long way. “There are very narrow wheels you dip into the sealing solution and run over the dry grout,” says Merakian. “Now we have a lot of coloured sealers so if your grout is stained you can go over it with coloured sealer and it looks brand-new.” Have fun when planning your new bathroom but keep the main features neutral. You can’t go wrong with pure white, and if you want to introduce some colour, walls and towels are where you should concentrate. This is a room where you can recharge after a long day so indulge yourself.

Planting for


With the short spring and summer season history (this year being exceptionally short), it is now time for us gardeners to focus our attention on our tired and ratty planters. If your annual containers are looking anything like mine, they are in need of a serious fix. It is important to remember that when you miss out on fall and winter planting, you are missing out on over half of a year of gardening. Also, with our mild weather we are able to grow stunning hanging baskets and planters all winter long. One of the biggest perks of planters and hanging baskets at this time of year is that the maintenance is low and watering is minimal. For those of you lacking a green thumb, this is a great time of year for you to plant and practice for spring. Whether sprucing up your existing planter or starting from scratch, it is always a good idea to plant a mixture of annuals, shrubs, perennials and grasses. Using a combination creates a variety of texture within your arrangement and offers you a broader colour palate. The brighter your containers are, the more they will cheer up your patio and entry areas on those dreary fall and winter days. If blooms and berries are what you are looking for throughout the upcoming seasons, the following will fill that void: pansies, violas, fall mums, asters, helleborus (Christmas rose), gaultheria (wintergreen), skimmia, camelias, and pyracantha.

On the other hand, if you are looking for some additions with a fewer blooms and brighter foliage colours, keep your eyes out for perennials and grasses such as: heuchera (coral bells), ferns, ivy, ajuga, bergenia, sedum, thyme, helychrisum, euphorbia, liriope, black mondo grass, blue fescue, carex buchanii and elymus. Ornamental cabbage and kale are also vibrant in colour and texture, but will last only one cool season. If you are looking for a larger shrub or tree with fabulous foliage for your planters, the following will do the trick: hemlock, taxus fastigata, dwarf spruce and cypresses, sarrcoccoca, leucothoe, ligustrum, and holly. All of these will be more substantial in your cool weather planters, so make sure your pot is large enough. A general rule for larger conifers and shrubs is to plant them in pots, which are at least 3 times larger than the pot they were in when purchased. This will ensure plenty of growing space over the next coming years. Now for the last must-have addition to your cool season planters… What is the one item that most people seem to stroll past when taking considerations for how to fill these containers? That’s right: fall bulbs. They deliver to us the early spring colour we long for all those short, dark winter days. They are one of the first signs, and a welcomed indication, of spring. The ideal way to plant these bulbs in your containers is in layers. Plant your tallest bulbs towards

the bottom, medium height in the middle and shortest bulbs on top with soil layers in between in a sort of lasagna fashion. By doing this, you will see bulbs from mid to late spring, all in one planter, all with gorgeous colour. Now that you’ve been inspired to step outside the box and tend to your gardening pots, here are a couple of tips to remember: One - Yellow flowers and foliage stand out most on the dark gloomy days of fall and winter. Two - Pots and planters under eaves will need to be watered throughout the cool season. Three - If you are planting a new

pot at this time of year, line the inside with bubble wrap to prevent the plants from freezing during the cool weather months. And lastly number four - This holiday season, add sprigs of holly, evergreen boughs or maybe even lights to create a festive feel on your patio or at your entrance (what better way to welcome holiday guests into your home, and brighten up the winter season with bright blooms and foliage.) So please, try something different this fall and winter. Lets plant your bulbs, add conifers to your drab planters and dress up your pots for the holiday season. Submitted by Cedar Rim Nursery

Breathing new life into Reclaimed wood by Kristyl Clark

They say One’s Man’s junk is another man’s treasure and this couldn’t be more true when these old items transform into unique, one-of-a-kind furnishings. Using materials salvaged from old buildings and bridges, to boats and barns, the reclaiming industry has created a fashion of its own while being the environmental friendly choice. Gone are the days of one or two popular looks, mass produced in a “cookie cutter” fashion, making even the most unique homes look like they were furnished with matching uniforms. Like a person choosing what clothing or car best represents their personality, never in history has furniture been more personal, according to Tim Garrett of Antique Concepts at 20560 Langley Bypass. “In days gone by there used to be very few looks that everyone seemed to chased after, so much so you could easily look at a piece of furniture and identify what decade it was manufactured. Whether it was the Queen Anne style of the 80’s or the Empire look of the 90’s, they’re easy to pick out said Garrett, “Furniture has really become an extension of our unique identities and incorporating reclaimed items really helps accomplish this. Also with homes shrinking in size and granite counter tops and hard wood floors being the hot trend, many people are looking for furniture that distinguishes their homes from others, and reclaimed items of course do this very well” added Garrett. “Right now there seems to be a lean towards furniture that has an Industrial feel; thicker wood tops while incorporating metal into the design, place those pieces on hardwood floors with a well chosen natural fibre area carpet and the room just pops.” While you are likely to find two to three similar pieces of furniture on the showroom floor at Antique Concepts, each will have its own unique characteristics due to the type of reclaimed wood used, and its grain and texture. “Although 2 pieces may look the same, upon closer inspection you can often see the craftsman may have constructed each piece ever so slightly different based on the materials available, said Garrett, who also notes that most reclaimed wood products come from overseas.“When a tree falls in B.C., it typically rots, but in India or Asia, the climate is much dryer so therefore the wood will have a longer life. It’s also interesting to know that reclaimed materials may have been reclaimed more than once.” When it comes to purchasing reclaimed furniture, Garrett encourages shoppers to opt for high quality, not just low-ticket prices. “We all have had a cotton T-shirt that’s made it through two washes and has fallen apart but we’ve also had one that has lasted for years becoming a favourite. Cheap is typically just cheap, but good value is different.”

Let’s talk about Sex (and the Suburb) No topic is too hot or too uncomfortable to be tackled by the ladies of SATS Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Over several glasses of wine and numerous brainstorming sessions (usually involving more wine), three very different Langley women, ages 25, 30 and 35, decided to create an edgy blog — where no topic is taboo — highlighting everything that is cool about living, dining and shopping in the Fraser Valley. And so was born. That was less than three months ago, and Sex and The Suburb has exploded in popularity, with the blog generating more than 8,500 hits in the first month. Since then, the SATS ladies have caught the eye of several Fraser Valley event organizers and are finding themselves co-hosting a radio show. Most recently, a local sex therapist has joined the blog to answer questions people are too shy to ask out loud. But it’s the honesty these women put into the articles they write that has really connected readers with the blog, and even though there is a certain vulnerability to being that open about their personal lives, none of the women has any regrets. It’s all written from a personal perspective, touching on domestic violence, eating disorders, marrying an older man, to having endemetreosis and not being able to have kids. “The kind of stories we wanted on SATS is all the stuff we talk about with our girlfriends and with our husbands,” said Kendall Del Frarri. “We don’t hold back.” It wasn’t enough to just highlight all that is cool about living in the Fraser Valley. “The idea for the website was

From left: Teresa Celentano, Kendall Del Frarri and Kristyl Clark are the founders of the Langleybased blog Sex and the Suburb, where no topic is taboo. we wanted to empower women while also showcasing the fabulous things we have going for us here in the Fraser Valley,” said Teresa Celentano. The trio had no idea the blog would become such a hit, so quickly. “It came together really fast and once we saw that the domain name hadn’t been taken, we got goosebumps,” said Kristyl Clark — the mommy of the trio whose hilarious and unabashedly honest columns Pink Laundry appear on the blog and will soon be featured in the Langley Times. The SATS girls recently partnered with the Cork and Keg event that took place on Friday, Sept. 14. They followed that up with visits to BBQ on the Bypass and the food fair in Abbotsford — posting pictures and blogging and tweeting about the tastiest treats and sips being offered,

with many readers posting their favourite bits and bites at the various events. The Fox radio station started following SATS on Twitter and now the the ladies have been invited to co-host one of the radio’s hump day segments for four hours on Sept. 19. The trio broke the news to their husbands that their private lives were going to be displayed for the world to see online. “They were totally supportive. They jokingly call themselves the Househusbands of Brookswood,” said Del Frarri, who wrote about her experience with domestic violence before she met her husband. “That was hard for my husband to read, but in the end it’s been a really positive thing for us,” she said. The response from readers has been overwhelming, with many thanking Del Frarri for speaking

out and helping them open up about their own experiences. Celentano wrote about her painful battle with endometriosis. “I felt really alone battling this. I felt like I was the only one going through this but when I wrote about it and received so much feedback I saw that I wasn’t alone,” she said. Since there is no hotter topic than sex and, well, it’s right there in the title of their blog — the SATS ladies were lucky to bring a sex therapist on board. “A lot of our readers want information about sex,” said Clark. People can submit a question anonymously and the doctor will answer, no matter how squeamish the question. Dr. Lyne Piche has already addressed why she thinks cheating happens and how to bring sexy back into that long-term relationship.

But the ladies also thought it was important to incorporate some charity work as well. The SATS ladies managed to fill 50 backpacks with school supplies for the Salvation Army back to school drive. Langley businesses really stepped up to help, said Clark. “It blew my mind how receptive businesses were to help as were friends and family, some who couldn’t afford $40, gave it anyway,” she said. “Businesses in Langley who didn’t even know who we were donated without reservation.” The SATS ladies also participated in the Underwear Affair this year, and have a lot of other ideas including a blood drive and sponsoring families at Christmas. To keep a blog like this going requires a lot of planning, business meetings (OK, it may involve wine) and writing. There is also the social media elements as well including constant tweets and posts. The blog is constantly being updated to keeps things fresh. “We have a lot of business meetings,” said Celentano. “Sometimes, I think I should just pitch a tent in Kendall’s backyard I’m there so late.” All three women are busy with paying jobs while managing to keep the blog hopping in the evenings and on the weekends. “Sometimes, I can’t find a babysitter so my girls will come to the meetings and I’ll find myself wiping butts between taking notes,” laughed Clark. Clark left her post as a reporter for the Peace Arch News to stay at home with her two young girls. Her columns are about the ups and downs of being a mom. While she often leaves readers laughing into their wine glasses with her tales, others require a handful of tissues to get through, including one in which she talks about her dad who died in an emergency shelter in the Downtown Eastside before Clark could tell him he was going to be a grandfather again.

Douglas Day salutes Langley’s Pioneer Farmers Jim McGregor

Albert and Dorothy Anderson have been attending the annual Douglas Day banquets for many years as guests. This year Albert will be attending his first Douglas Day event as a Langley Pioneer having achieved the criteria of reaching age seventy and living in Langley for sixty years. “The Pioneer recognition is unique to Langley and I have always attended out of respect for the men and women who were my neighbors, teachers or clients in my veterinary business.” Albert says. “It’s difficult to consider myself a Pioneer, up there with all those people whom I have looked up to for so many years.” It is only fitting that Albert should be eligible this year as the theme for Douglas Day 2012 is a Salute to Langley’s Pioneer Farmers. Albert and Dorothy own and operate Aldor Acres in Glenn Valley. “I am living about a mile from where I was born,” says Albert. “We have about 160 acres that we farm here. My sons have farms down the road, a dairy farm and a tree farm, and my daughter has a blueberry farm around the corner. She also grows apples and raises lady bugs.” Gone are the days when every farmer shipped milk. “Only the big operations can exist as dairy farms today,” explains Albert. “We have a mixed farm here; we provide a lot of

achieved a degree in Management Studies and I envisioned her coming home and working in the city in a business suit and high heels but here she is in pig tails and work boots and we are very happy to have her.” educational value. Our farm tours are a major part of our operation and even though a lot of our cuddly animals have no economic value on the farm, this is often the only opportunity people have to see llamas or pot bellied pigs or see vegetables growing in the field.” Dorothy also has a farming background. “I grew up on a dairy farm in Agassiz. When we moved to Langley Albert and I met through 4-H and we are celebrating our forty-ninth anniversary this year. We still have grand kids in 4-H and I believe that is where the future of farming is, with the grandchildren.” Their granddaughter Millissa is the Operations Manager for the farm. “She went off to Boston on a hockey scholarship,” explains Dorothy. “She

“I travelled a bit and worked a few places away,” smiles Millissa, “but I didn’t like the lifestyle and my roots were here. I have a mobile animal display that we take to senior’s facilities and I love to see the joy the animals bring and listen to the former farmer’s stories.” Albert has seen a dramatic change in Langley’s farming community over the past 70 years. “In 1969 after I was one of the first graduates from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, I purchased Milner Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Irwin. Back then, 80% of my clientele was large animals, cattle and horses. Many of today’s Pioneers were my customers and I have plenty of stories I could tell. When I retired in 2003, 75% of my business was dealing with cats and dogs as the number of working farms had decreased.”

As the area slowly changes from rural to urban Albert and his family are glad they have enough land to stave off encroachment. “We have good neighbours but no one is willing to buy farms anymore, there is very little return on the dollar and no one wants to do the work required.”

“We still very much enjoy the farm life and when we go to bed tired at night, we see the smiles of the people who have come for the tours, tasted the pumpkin pie and ice cream and were so pleased at the experience, it makes it all worthwhile for us.” Pumpkin pie will be on the menu at this year’s banquet. Douglas Day will be held at the Langley Events Center at noon on Monday November 19thth. Alice Johnson, chair of the Douglas Day Committee explains, “We listened to the feedback from last year and the majority liked the noon event. This way we will provide a full hot meal for lunch and hopefully, because it is a daytime event, many of our pioneers that don’t come out in the evening will be able to attend.” The formal celebration of Douglas Day began in Langley in 1946 (there were some banquets held as early as the 1920’s with the Native Sons and Native Daughters acting as hosts). But since 1946, each year there has been a dinner to honour our pioneers. continued on next page

years ago Pat Toppings suggested the Seniors Resource Centre should have a table tennis table. “No one seemed interested at first,” recalls Pat. “But I was persistent and finally someone donated a table and four or five of us started playing once in awhile.”

Today the table tennis group is sixty-nine members strong and they roll out five tables at the Seniors’ Centre every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday morning. “We call ourselves Mellow Yellow,” says Pat, “we range in age from fifty-five to ninety and most of us have mel-

Being called Mellow Yellow doesn’t mean they don’t have a competitive streak. At the 2012 BC Seniors’ Games in Burnaby in August, the table tennis team from Langley won seventeen medals in total. “We were entered in all categories,” says, Pat, “singles, doubles and mixed doubles in both men’s and women’s divisions representing our region. We brought home four gold, six silver, and seven bronze. It was a great showing considering the Games were held in Burnaby and there were over four thousand competitors this year.” The winning team consisted of Jim Simpson, Pat Toppings, Henry Kanier, Julie Valough, Norma Andrus, Gladys Bower, Paul Howes and Dan Burgess. “We play both competitive and recreational table tennis and some members compete in each level. When people see our yellow shirts with our names on them they know the Mellow Yellow team from Lang-

ley has arrived.” Table tennis is recommended by doctors and physiotherapists as an ideal low impact workout. “My cardiologist first recommended the sport to me twelve years ago,” Pat explains. “Not only does it improve circulation but it also improves balance and sharpens hand-eye coordination. Unlike court tennis, there is no arm raising, reaching or running so there is much less opportunity for strains or falls.” “We had one of our members asked by her doctor how she had improved her heart rate and reduced her blood pressure in such a short time. He couldn’t believe that the only change in her routine was getting back to table tennis. Some folks call it Ping Pong but that is actually the trade name for the paddles, we play table tennis.” Gladys Bower has been a team member for over five years. “I used to play many years ago in England when I was just out of high school. In the mills and factories we had

2012 Seniors Games teams and we would travel all over playing each other. I got away from the game for fifty years but when I took it up again it came back in an instant. We have a great social atmosphere here and the companionship is wonderful.” Pat and her husband Jim Simpson keep the group on track and organize other events such as their annual picnic. “The group has spawned a lot of friendships and everyone stays in touch. We don’t like it when a holiday Monday interrupts our routine.” “I would really like to see this sport introduced into the schools. It is a great workout for all ages and you don’t have to be an athlete to take part. It would be great for the kids and Mellow Yellow would be happy to organize and teach the young folks,” says Pat. “We are always looking for new members. Stop by the Langley Seniors’ Resource Society and check us out. We supply all the paddles and equipment you just have to show up and have fun.”

Many of Langley’s Senior athletes once again acquitted themselves well at the 2012 B.C. Senior’s games. In addition to the medal hall of the Mellow Yellow team, two other track and field competitors from Aldergrove had outstanding results.

Cup quest falls short for Thunder Mann Cup ends in six games as host Peterborough Lakers rally to win final four games against the Langley Thunder Gary ahuja Times Sports

Usually when you chase the opposing team’s top goaltender, momentum is clearly in your favour. But unfortunately for the Langley Thunder, the opposite proved true. Ahead two games to none in the best-of-seven Mann Cup senior A men’s amateur lacrosse championships against the host Peterborough Lakers, Langley scored on three of their first seven shots in game three. That prompted the Lakers to replace Tyler Carlson with Mike Thompson, and Thompson was phenomenal the rest of the way, stopping 122 of the 150 shots he faced — an .813 save percentage — as Peterborough won the next

In a match-up of Canada West women’s soccer powerhouses, it was the Trinity Western Spartans delivering the knockout punch. The Spartans scored a dozen goals in two games the previous weekend while the UBC Thunderbirds were good for nine goals in their pair of victories. But it was Trinity Western which came through with a 3-0 victory over the visiting Thunderbirds on Saturday at Rogers Field on the TWU campus. The Spartans improved to 3-0-0 while UBC fell to 2-1-0. Both entered the game in the top 10 polls nationally, with Trinity Western ranked third and UBC eighth. “I’m really pleased because they’re a good team and obviously it’s a great rivalry,” said Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh. “I thought both teams started

with some jitters but we settled down after about 10 minutes and started moving the ball and I was really pleased with our ball possession. I thought we were full value tonight. It’s a good step forward for us and I’m happy we took our chances. “Our passing was excellent tonight. I thought our midfield settled down and we were all firing tonight. We’ll take it as a good step forward. We have lots of work to do, but you can’t fault our kids. They were excellent tonight. We knew tonight was a big game and we responded.” In the 24th minute, the Spartans Jenna Di Nunzio broke down the left wing, beat her defender and slipped a low pass into the middle of the six-yard box that found an unmarked Boyd just feet from the goal line. The Trinity Western midfielder easily converted her first of the season into a gaping net. With a 1-0 lead, Trinity Western pushed for more offence and 13 minutes later Gommeringer notched her fifth goal of the season to double the Spartans advantage.

Trinity Western’s leading striker, just inside the sixyard box, took a pass from Jilian Dietrich off the right flank and whipped a shot to the top corner that beat Williamson clean. The Thunderbirds applied pressure late in the first half but ultimately were unable to get a shot on target in the entire first half. In the second half, it was more of the same as Trinity Western continued to maintain possession and earn quality attempts on goal. In the 65th minute, the Spartans potted their third goal of the game when Webber ripped a brilliant quickly-taken free kick from beyond 40 yards to the top left corner that deflected off the fingertips of Williamson and into the back of the net for the centre-back’s first marker of the season. Kristen Funk made three saves for the shutout, her second in three games. In the UBC goal, Langley’s Alyssa Williamson made three saves. The Spartans are on the road this weekend for a pair of games against Manitoba (2-2-0) on Saturday and Winnipeg (0-3-1) on Sunday.

In game five, the Thunder raced out to a 4-0 lead after 20 minutes, but were outscored 7-0 in the second period and fell 9-5. Game six saw Langley lead 5-3 after the opening period only to be done in by another disastrous second period, this time six unanswered goals by the Lakers, in the 14-8 final score. The Thunder made their first-ever Mann Cup appearance last year, losing at the Langley Events Centre in five games to the Brampton Excelsiors.
