The Big Heritage Crunch
Park preservationists told to come up with $3 million for acreage By NATASHA JONES Aldergrove Star

The Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF), a non-profit group, has been given until Nov. 17 to come up with $3 million to buy taxpayer-owned land in Glen Valley. The amount is no surprise: In July Mayor Jack Froese challenged those who want to preserve the forested land to come up with the money. But the tight deadline appears to have caught WOLF off guard. WOLF member Stuart Bucholtz declined to comment. “We have to have time to disseminate it,” he said on Tuesday morning. Township administrator Mark Bakken also declined to comment beyond stating that talks between the municipality and WOLF are continuing. WOLF is comprised of Township residents who oppose the Township’s plan to sell what they consider are ecologically significant forests and wetlands. Before WOLF was formed, residents were successful in persuading council not to sell 21 acres of Township-owned forest in Glen Valley on 84 Avenue, between 252 and 254 Streets. If the group can come up with $3 million, it will own the 25-acre forest located near 84 Avenue and 260 Street. The Township had planned to use the
proceeds of the sale to buy the Aldergrove Elementary School site on which in plans to build a new community centre, swimming pool and ice rink. The 21 acres fell into the Township’s hands in the 1930s as a result of a property tax sale. The parcel consists of one five-acre lot and two plots of eight acres each. The parcels are within the Agricultural Land Reserve while those which the Township intends to sell to WOLF are outside the ALR boundary. In a statement issued early last month, WOLF said it has continued a campaign on Facebook and twitter to gather more public support for the retention of the easterly properties. The campaign included organized guided trail walks through the site, and gathering names on a petition. It now has several thousand signatures. Information made public for the first time about the proposal to WOLF appeared in the agenda for council’s meeting on Oct. 1. It notes that council had anticipated community groups would raise funds for Grey Pit but that understanding “appears to be uncertain.” WOLF is was also expected to come up with a $10,000 deposit by Oct. 3. If WOLF can secure the funds, it must show it is an incorporated society under the Society Act, and “protect and conserve” the land for a park, trail, education, and recreational purposes in perpetuity.
Pipeline break oods sewage into West Creek By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star
Langley Township is working hard to clean up a “significant” sewage spill into a portion of West Creek, a fish-bearing stream, last Thursday. According to Township director of public works Ronald Zwaag, a large sewage main broke in Gloucester at 272 Street, south of 56 Avenue, which sits right beside West Creek.
The Township found out about it quickly, and crews worked fast to shut shut down the flow of sewage so they could get at the broken main. “We worked through the night and had the pipe fixed by the weekend,” said Zwaag. “But the clean up of the creek is complicated and ongoing.” Both the Ministry of Environment and the Department of Fisheries are
The COOL place to...�
aware and in contact with the Township about the spill. When sewage effluent spews into a waterway, it chokes the oxygen inside the water, killing every living thing that relies on that oxygen. “The first thing we did was pump oxygen back into the creek,” said Terry Veer, manager of operations. This particular area of West Creek had local species like trout.

However, other areas of West Creek are salmon bearing. The spill area appears to be contained because a beaver dam has landlocked that particular section of waterway. But the damage is done and now they are conducting tests to see what levels of chloroform and other materials are left in the water. “We have been pumping out sewage and replacing it with fresh water, so we
are waiting for test results on that,” said Veer. The mystery is why a 12-year-old pipe would break. “The pipes should last 75 years,” said Veer. A piping expert is being brought in by the Township to investigate the pipe to see where the failure is and to determine if this could happen in other parts of the sewage lines in Gloucester.

Langley school debt will be repaid by the year’s end By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star
An albatross hanging over Langley School District’s neck will be lifted two years earlier than expected. The district is expected to pay off its $13 million deficit, incurred from accounting errors in the years up to 2009, by the end of this year, said secretary-treasurer David Green at the Sept. 26 Board of Education meeting. The ministry of education stepped in, requiring a repayment plan after it was learned the district had accumulated the massive deficit. At Tuesday’s board meeting, Green told trustees that not only will the deficit be paid off, but the district is projecting a surplus of $839,000. Trustees debated at length about whether or not to hold that surplus money in an emergency/rainy day account or put it back into classrooms
Heritage School in Good Shape
today. The ministry recommends that the district carry a surplus of two per cent so it doesn’t go into a deficit situation again. A two per cent surplus amounts to around $3.1 million, said trustee Rob McFarlane. “That may seem like a lot but in this district, that is about a week’s worth of expenses,” he said. In the end, trustees voted to set up the rainy day fund. Green said the board can tell staff when and where they want the money released to at a later date. The Auditor General was brought in to audit the district’s book and the office has just come back prepared to issue a statement of approval “which is a really good thing,” said Green. Any district audited by the Auditor General is held to a much higher standard, said board chair Wendy Johnson.

Residents blockade Bradner fill site By KEVIN MILLS Aldergrove Star
More than a dozen semi-trucks were lined up along Bradner Road on Monday morning as residents erected a makeshift blockade. The protest was designed to draw attention to what locals believe is illegal dumping taking place on 29325 Marsh McCormick Rd. Residents say that for the past few months the property, owned by Gene Drader, has had dozens of dump trucks arrive each day, bringing a mixture of soil and concrete pieces as fill. But no city permit has been granted. Duncan Kerfoot, who has lived in Bradner for the past 11 years, said the city has done little to stop it, other than warning the owner. “... he just continues hauling,” said Kerfoot. After getting little civic action, the decision was made to block the trucks’ path. “We just gave up waiting for the city.” Kerfoot said living close to the
dumping site has been difficult. He said the process goes on from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is noisy. It also leaves dirt and mud on the road as well as creating cement and other forms of dust in the area. Some residents are concerned that the constant dumping is creating health problems for humans and animals. “It’s come to the point that the vet is looking after my horse because he’s got respiratory problems. I’m on three inhalers now. The dust is terrible,” said Carol Knelson, who has lived in the area for 30 years. Residents aren’t blaming the truck drivers, who they said are just doing their jobs, but the blockade was needed to get some response from the city. The tactic seemed to work as the Abbotsford Police and city works inspector Ryan Doman attended the scene. Doman told the crowd the city is aware of the concerns and is currently looking into legal action against the property owner.
KEVIN MILLS PHOTO
Police attended after angry Bradner residents blocked a road to prevent trucks from dumping their loads in a nearby ravine, which a property owner wants to fill. He acknowledged that the owner does not have a permit to deposit soil. “We have contacted our lawyer to find out what our next steps are, as per our bylaw,” he said. Once legal counsel has respond-
ed, Doman said he is hopeful that the situation can be settled. Doman confirmed that stop-work orders have been posted, but dumping has continued. After close to three hours, police and the city convinced residents
to remove the barricade and allow trucks to pass. While the property owner declined to comment on the issue, an official response was issued to Black Press. “The owners of the property 29325 Marsh McCormick Rd., Gene and Gillian Drader, have been instructed by their lawyer to exercise due diligence to help prevent any further collapse of their property or the road that borders it. Because of a right-of-way agreement after the original settlement of litigation with the city, there is no permit required. Any stop work notices have been a misunderstanding due to lack of communication. “The only option to perform this maintenance is to use clean fill authorized by their geotechnical engineer to help the stabilization of the surrounding properties and Marsh McCormick Rd.” The statement did not go into any detail about a previous litigation, and no one at city hall was available to comment by press time.
Motorcyclist dies in collision with heavy truck Aldergrove Star
A 24-year-old Abbotsford man whose motorcycle collided with a large commercial truck died in hospital Saturday afternoon. The crash occurred at about noon on Downes Road just east of Bradner Road in Abbotsford. The truck driver was headed west and
was making a left turn into a driveway. The motorcyclist, riding a Kawasaki Ninja, had just turned east off Bradner Road, travelled around the blind corner and collided with the truck. The rider was thrown from the bike and suffered critical injuries. He was transported to hospital but died an hour later.
Const. Ian MacDonald said the driver of the truck remained on scene and was cooperative with police. The collision is still under investigation, but officers are looking into whether speed was a factor. The name of the motorcyclist has not been released.

‘Heroes’ sign will be replaced Aldergrove Star
The Highway of Heroes sign that was demolished recently in a two-vehicle crash will be replaced, promised the new Minister of Transportation. “We should have a new sign in place by Oct. 19,” said Mary Polak, Minister of Transportation and Langley MLA. “It’s important to do.” The Langley MLA got word of the sign’s demolition and put things in motion to have it rebuilt.
She says it will cost around $10,000 to replace it. Two pickup trucks were driving east along Highway 1, near the sign just before the 264 St. exit, when one of the vehicles changed lanes into the other vehicle, said RCMP Freeway Patrol. The two vehicles locked together and slid off the road, smashing into the sign. There were no injuries, said RCMP. The Trans-Canada Highway between Langley and Abbotsford
was dedicated as the “Highway of Heroes” in June 2011 to honour 13 B.C. soldiers who died in Afghanistan. The roll call of the fallen includes Master Cpl. Colin Bason, a 28-year-old reserve soldier from Aldergrove killed by the explosion of roadside bomb on July 4, 2007 and Pte. Garrett Chidley, a 21-yearold full-time soldier from Langley. Chidley was killed on Dec. 30, 2010, after the light armoured vehicle he was driving struck an improvised explosive device.

VICTORIA – The Union of B.C. Municipalities convention is the political event of the year for B.C. party leaders, especially heading into a provincial election. Up first was NDP leader Adrian Dix, who drew a large crowd of local politicians last week for the traditional earlymorning spot that follows a long evening of receptions. In contrast to his debut last year, a typical litany of political attacks on the B.C. Liberals, Dix declared he would take the high road. And perhaps mindful of Carole James’ downfall after her content-free speech to the 2010 UBCM convention, Dix set out policies. He told delegates an NDP government would restore local authority over Metro Vancouver transit (no more toothless “mayor’s council”) and mountain resorts (no more Jumbo ski resort permits issued over local objections). Dix would also let communities decide if they want public-private partnerships for large construction projects. (Federal Heritage Minister James Moore later noted that if communities or provinces wish to decline federal funds due to this ideology, they are free to do so.) Then Dix accused the B.C. Liberals of cutting forest inventory spending by 77 per cent over the last decade, meaning decisions like rebuilding the Burns Lake mill
are being made “in the dark” for the first time in a century. That’s a damning charge, so I checked it against forest ministry budget records. As with all government programs, accounting changes can give a misleading appearance of large cuts or increases from year to year. And indeed forest inventory spending has bounced around during the B.C. Liberal term. The budget for forest inventory staffing and operation was about $8 million in 2001-02, rising as high as $15 million and falling to a low of $5.1 million in recession-hit 2009-10. The estimate for the current fiscal year is $9.7 million, an increase to try to catch up with the pine beetle disaster. Crown forest inventory has indeed fallen behind due to rapid shifts caused by unprecedented insect and fire damage. But has spending been slashed as Dix claims? No. It has increased. Next up was Premier Christy Clark, in full campaign mode. In the Gordon Campbell tradition, she brought the goodies out in her speech to close the convention. More than $200 million has been scraped together to “accelerate” capital projects at schools, hospitals and other facilities across the province. These projects were already on the books, but they’ve been moved up for obvious political purposes. Or
at least the announcements will be moved up. Four-laning of the last narrow stretches of the TransCanada Highway east of Kamloops will continue over 10 years. This is a federal-provincial project that will eventually be finished regardless of who is governing in Victoria or Ottawa. It includes some of the most staggeringly expensive road building in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Pass, a short section that could require two tunnels and up to 12 more bridges. Clark also announced a long-range plan to replace the George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River. It will likely be a bridge, because the tunnel is a bottleneck not only for Highway 99, but also for large ships going up-river. This is another project that will proceed eventually, and there is no specific financial commitment yet. I haven’t found any outright false claims in Clark’s presentation, just the kind of creative accounting and blacktop politics familiar to B.C. voters. As always, I’m pleased to hear from people with specific corrections. For now, call it a tie. Neither speech represents a proud moment for our provincial leadership.

Between January and June of this year, 307 dogs were brought into your local shelter, but only 60 were adopted. The Patti Dale Animal shelter works very hard to keep the dogs that live in the shelter happy and healthy. Working with this shelter and others across Canada, Pedigree is embarking upon its fifth adoption drive to show that shelter dogs are good dogs. The Pedigree Adoption Drive began on September 19, and will culminate at the end of 2012. At this point, Pedigree will have donated more than $1 million to shelters across Canada, $5,000 of which is going directly to the Patti Dale Animal Shelter to put toward anything they currently require, including food, medical expenses or operating costs. The Patti Dale Animal Shelter has several unique features. The shelter provides basic obedience training to all their shelter dogs, along with prospective dog owners, before adoption. This program has been successful, and has decreased adoption returns by half since its inception. Further, the shelter operates a satellite facility at the Fraser Valley Institution for Women (a women’s prison). The shelter partners with the Correctional Service of Canada to provide work skills to female inmates; the women operate a dog boarding and training kennel that has been successful for both the women and the dogs. DOG ADOPTION FACTS Adopting a Dog • Educate yourself on dog ownership – Dogs take time and deserve lots of attention, affection and exercise – ensure you can dedicate the time to have a dog as a part of your lifestyle. • Decide why you want a dog, what you are looking for in your future pet and what kind of dog you want – do you want a fun playmate for children or a companion for an older person? Can you offer your pet a house with a backyard or a small apartment? Every breed has its own traits, and knowing what you want and what you have to offer can help the decision process. • Opening your home to a dog can result in an extremely strong relationship – be prepared to gain a loyal dog that becomes a part of your family for life. Adopting From a Shelter • Each time a dog is adopted into a good home it makes room for another dog or allows a dog to have a longer stay at the shelter, increasing the chances that more shelter dogs will get getting adopted. • At any shelter, you’ll find lots of shelter dogs in need of a good home, but it may take many visits to find “your” dog. • Bring a pen and paper, asks lots of questions and write down everything. If you can, bring along a digital camera. Once you’ve spent some time away from the shelter with your notes and images, you may have an easier time deciding which dog fits best with you. • Spend time with the dog before you adopt them to look for signs that they will fit in your lifestyle. • Shelters will ask you lots of questions. While some may feel personal, each question is designed to help place the best dog in the best home possible. Preparing Your Home for Your Dog • Adopting a dog can feel a lot like bringing home a new baby and you should dog-proof your home to ensure they are entering a safe environment right from the start. • Ensure harmful chemicals and pesticides are inaccessible. • Keep dangerous or fragile objects out of reach. • Close any doors or install baby gates to any room you don’t want your new dog to go into. • Have everything your dog will need ready before you bring them home. • Use separate bowls for food and water. • Prepare their bed with thick, washable bedding for both comfort and convenience. A crate, with enough room for your dog to stand and turn around in, will offer your dog its own space within your home. Ensure your family knows the crate is meant to be the dog’s retreat and children should be kept from entering or playing in it. • Invest in an assortment of durable plastic and/or rubber toys that can be easily washed. If you’re able to, bring home one of their toys from the shelter to provide a familiar scent in the new surroundings. • Ensure you have a quality comb or brush on hand to help your dog maintain a healthy coat. Detailed grooming is best done by a professional, and is an important part of caring for your dog. SEE: Page 7

Common sense needed on 16th Ave. Editor: Even back in 2002, 16th Avenue had more accidents than Zero Avenue. That being recognized, through the installation of ‘traffic calming devices’ the council of the day, in their wisdom, chose to divert more than 3,000 cars a day onto 16th Avenue, ignoring the loud and opposing voices of hundreds of South Langley residents and taxpayers as they did so. It has been said that, “One should never attribute malice to events that are much more easily explained by incompetence.” There are, however, certain irrefutable facts that have given long-time observers of the 16th Avenue/Zero Avenue debate cause to wonder. Consider these points: Zero Avenue runs the full length of Langley Municipality on its southern boundary with the United States. 16th Avenue does not. Zero Avenue makes contact with the border crossing to the U.S., but it has no cross streets for the full length of the road. 16th Avenue has a significant number of full-blown, four-corner intersections for the full length of the road. Zero Avenue residents live on one side of the road only and, comparatively speaking, are few in number. 16th Avenue residents live on both sides of the road and, comparatively speaking, significantly outnumber their counterparts to the south. Zero Avenue has always been a commuter road and has long been recognized as such… even by those who live there (Langley Times, Feb. 26, 2002). This same article quotes a Zero Avenue resident as saying “the issue is about safety… but it’s also about maintaining Langley’s countryside. This is the Township’s greatest asset.” The individual who made that comment should get out and appreciate the Township to its fullest, as it is blessed with an abundance of beautiful and much admired quiet country roads and landscapes. Actually, Zero Avenue, in much of its length, is bordered on the south by a mosquito-breeding swamp. Two well attended Open Houses (March 26, 2002 and June 25, 2002) were proffered
by the Township to discuss the Zero Avenue proposals and to receive input from those residents and taxpayers on and between 16th Avenue and Zero Avenue. Questionnaires were available which encouraged input from the taxpayers in attendance. At the March 26, 2002 meeting, 37 people were on the agenda to speak and four of those spoke in favour of the proposals, the remaining were in firm opposition. From that indication of opposition, one can extrapolate the results of the questionnaires. The information drawn from these questionnaires, along with a 670-name petition in opposition to the proposals seem to have drawn little attention and in fact seem to have disappeared from view, with several councillors indicating “that they did not know that such a petition existed, nor had they seen the traffic studies in advance of voting on the present proposal to restrict 0 avenue traffic…” (Langley Times, November 12, 2004). The Township engineers, in 2002, had planned to have Zero Avenue become a collector road. Council members, not an engineer among them, determined that treating an east-west connector as a country road was a preferable choice. Both Surrey and Abbotsford did their best to discourage these pseudo-engineers, but to no avail (inter-municipal correspondence: Surrey, March 20, 2002 / Abbotsford, April 19, 2002). Even the fire chief, Wayne Markel voiced his concerns with respect to the speed humps damaging equipment and slowing response times ( June, 2002). Well, here we go again, with the talk of fourlaning 16th Avenue. Municipal residents (taxpayers) living in the southern portion of the municipality and who are 8-kms. from their closest fire hall, already pay a significant amount of money for their home insurance. Imagine any emergency vehicles attempting to cross over four lanes of 16th Avenue… just wait until the brokers get news of this little delay-maker. A four–lane 16th Avenue would sever, cut off, amputate the entire portion of Langley Municipality that is situated south of 16th Avenue. In this portion of the municipality property values would plummet while the
municipal council would struggle with the choice of roundabouts, stop lights or overpasses at each of the mile-length road intersections. To recognize the need for Zero Avenue to be upgraded to an arterial status is a necessity. This upgrade would see funding assistance from a wide variety of sources and would cut the costs to the municipality significantly. A sigh of relief would then come from all of those who love, appreciate and use the Campbell Valley Park and the McLean Scout Park and all of the horse trails in the area. A four-lane road through this magnificent rural area is beyond imagination. Now this is the “preservation of our countryside” and it is a true asset. Those people who will die on 16th Avenue, if this proposal to four-lane 16th Avenue comes to fruition, will not die because of the road… roads do not kill. People will die because of human error. With respect to the Zero Avenue/16th Avenue controversy in the past, much of that human error has been on display at the council table and has resulted in illinformed, poorly researched, misguided, ill-conceived, ill-advised and wrongly motivated decisions being put forth and into place, completely without a solid base in reason, reality or right. As you can see, it has been done before. It must not happen again. To err is human… to make the same mistake in the face of so much valid information would be a crime. In reference to Zero Avenue, former Mayor, Kurt Alberts, was quoted in The Province, (November 08, 2004) he says “the long-term future of the corridor may well be as a connecting east-west highway paid for by the region.” “The ultimate solution is to widen the road. It will cost millions of dollars. It’s basically a one-sided road in terms of driveways” (intersecting roads on the Canadian side stop at the U.S. border). “It is ideal for a major east-west corridor. In the future it makes sense,” he says. Well that was in 2004…and the future is now. I. McKaig, Langley

Make sure that you have input on pool plans too
Editor: What an awesome response this past Saturday at the Aldergrove Safeway at our Aldergrove Pool Committee information table. We are extremely pleased with the amount of interest, questions and comments from our residents. This is what we want to see, our
community coming together for a common goal of getting an awesome indoor pool/recreation centre here in town. The Aldergrove Pool Committee is encouraging residents of Langley Township to be part of the collective voice that is striving to make sure we have input into the plans
for a new Recreation and Aquatic Centre for Aldergrove. We will be having another information table set up this Saturday, October 6 at the Aldergrove Save-on Foods between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.. Now with the Mayor’s Standing Committee being formed, we need to come together as a community
and be heard, loud and clear. The first meeting of this Standing Committee will be on Tuesday, October 9. This gives us only till January to have a say in what Aldergrove wants to see in their new Indoor Pool and Rec Centre. Joanne Nicolato, Chair, Aldergrove Pool Committee
Advice for potential new dog owners FROM: Page 6
• Purchase a collar and leash that properly fit your dog. Look for durable leather or nylon. Leashes should be approximately 1.25 to 1.75 metres (four to six feet) long and comfortable to hold. • Get an I.D. tag, listing your dog’s name and home particulars. You can also have your dog microchipped – it’s quick, safe and effective should your new dog get lost.
• Schedule a veterinary appointment – dogs are thoroughly cared for while at shelters, but you will want them to meet your family vet. Introducing Your Dog to Your Life • Dog adoption is just as exciting to dog as it for you so you will want to help your new dog acclimatize to his new home. • Upon arriving home, give your
dog time to settle in and make sure it has a quiet place to retreat to. • Introduce a daily routine with scheduled times for feeding, sleeping and exercising as soon as possible. • Gradually introduce your dog to people outside your family. • Kids typically love dogs and it’s a good idea to supervise pet-play until you are comfortable the dog will not show aggression.
• Keep your dog leashed when you first bring them home until you’re sure they do not feel threatened by their new situation. • Feed your dog the same food it received at the shelter to maintain a sense of familiarity as it adjusts to a new life. After a few days, slowly introduce new food. For more information on the Pedigree adoption drive visit www.mypedigree.ca/adoption

604-534-7891 • www.sd35.bc.ca Audited Financials Confirm Deficit Repayment is on Track
At their September 25 Regular Meeting, the Langley Board of Education approved the District’s Audited Financial Statements for 2011/2012.
Members of Lynn Fripps' immediate family joined the school community for the first day of school at Lynn Fripps Elementary last month.
Naming Process for New Elementary School School District No. 35 is now accepting submissions from the public for the name of the new elementary school in the SouthEast Yorkson area. The school is scheduled to open in Fall 2013 at 20965 - 77A Avenue (at 209th). Names should reflect the geographical area or names of prominent persons, including deceased persons. Submissions should include the name and contact information of the person or group making the suggestion, and a rationale for the suggested name. Submission forms can be downloaded from our website. Submissions must be returned by October 29, 2012 to the office of the Secretary Treasurer at the School Board Office, 4875 – 222nd Street, Langley V3A 3Z7. Submissions may also be faxed to 604532-1401 or sent to Laurie Mason at the following e-mail address: lmason@ sd35.bc.ca For more information call 604-532-1476.

Board Approves New Strategic Plan The 2012-2013 Strategic Plan was approved at the Regular Board meeting of September 25th. The public is invited to view the Plan at www.sd35.bc.ca/strategicplan. Feedback sent via firstname.lastname@example.org will assist in the development of next year’s Strategic Plan.
Over the past two years the District has achieved a total of $14,466,736 in net revenue ($6,222,253 in 2010-2011 and $8,244,483 in 2011-2012) in our operating fund. Of this amount $156,590 of revenue was transferred to the capital fund to cover the cost of capital assets purchased in the operating fund, leaving a net revenue amount of $14,310,146. Comparing this figure to the June 30, 2010 operating fund deficit of $13,470,940, the operating fund now has a surplus of $839,206.
Aldergrove Soccer Action
The Board established a restricted surplus of $2,688,260 at the end of June 2011 which has now been increased to $3,188,260 at June 2012. What this means is that the $839,206 operating fund surplus is comprised of this restricted surplus of $3,188,260 and an unrestricted deficit of $2,349,054, a figure we still have to repay under the Deficit Elimination Plan. We have budgeted for a surplus of $2,134,408 in 2012-2013 which, if achieved, will eliminate most of this remaining deficit. The detailed Audited Financial Statements may be viewed in the Board News area of our website at www.sd35.bc.ca.
Catchment for New Elementary School The Board approved two recommendations related to the catchment for the new elementary school. The first recommendation set the proposed boundary for the new school, while the second recommendation set the resulting new proposed boundary for Willoughby Elementary. The change would affect only the eastern boundary for Willoughby Elementary as outlined on the school’s current catchment map viewable in our schools directory at www.sd35.bc.ca/ schools The catchment map for the new South-East Yorkson area school may also be viewed online at www.sd35.bc.ca/newschools Feedback on the proposed catchment boundaries may be sent via SEYorksonfeedback@sd35.bc.ca

Bantam Fall Ball Tourney a solid hit for Aldergrove By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star
The fifth annual Bantam Fall Ball Classic was a huge success for the hosts, Aldergrove Minor Baseball Association, and competing players. Richmond and Vancouver were the winners in the two divisions. “We had 10 teams, which is unheard of for any tournament other than provincials,” said tournament organizer Darren Rock. “Also having two Aldergrove teams (Reds and Blues) playing in the same tournament
has never been done before.” In the Gold tier (top tier) Richmond beat Aldergrove Reds 3-1 in the final. In the Silver tier (second tier) Vancouver Mounties beat North Shore 7-5. Aldergrove Blues made the semi-finals in the Silver tier, losing to the Vancouver Mounties. In all there were 28 games played over the seven days, Sept. 24-30, at Aldergrove Athletic Park and Abbotsford’s Townline Park.

Kodiaks’ Spencer McHaffie (#93) scored a hat trick plus one, with assists on all four by his twin brother Scott (#97) and Darcy Rai (#10), in a 9-3 blowout of the Port Moody Black Panthers, Sept. 26 at Aldergrove Arena.
Kodiaks back on big game track By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star
The Aldergrove Kodiaks improved their standings Friday evening as they charged to a 7-4 away win over the Ridge Meadows Flames. The Kodiaks dominated the game, and kept a healthy lead over all three periods. Captain Daniel Higgs notched his first hat trick of the season and bagged the game’s first star, while the Flames’ Christopher Nakamura took the second star for his hat trick. Kodiak Spencer McHaffie earned third star for a pair of goals. The Kodiaks outshot the Flames 33-17 and scored on four of seven power plays, while the Flames only scored on one of four. Higgs opened the scoring at 26 seconds into the game (assists by Stephen Ryan and Ryan Procyshyn) and nagged the second goal of the period on a power at 12:13. McHaffie scored another at 16:36 (assists by Stefan Gonzales and Darcy Rai) and Flames’ Nakamura scored the final goal on a power play at 17:42. Kodiaks scored two more in the second before the Flames could answer with two more. Kodiaks’ scorers were Matthew Lloyd on a power play, from Josiah Friesen, and Scott McHaffie at 7:43 from his twin brother Spencer and Rai. Kodiaks scored two more in the third on power plays at 28 seconds and 2:14, by Higgs (assisted by Gonzales and Ryan) and Spencer McHaffie unassisted. The Flames closed the scoring at 17:03 for the 7-4 Kodiaks win. The win puts the Kodiaks two points behind division leader Abbotsford Pilots, with six points after six games for three wins, three losses. The Kodiaks clawed their way to a 9-3 blowout of the visiting Port Moody Black Panthers, Sept. 26 at Aldergrove
Arena. The team showed markedly improved discipline and cohesiveness, after a disappointing series of three losses had put them near the bottom of the league. “They are buying into the program and it’s paying off,” remarked general manager Rick Harkins after the game. Particularly impressive was the production of the first line offence of twins Spencer and Scott McHaffie and Darcy Rai. Spencer notched four goals that night, assisted by Scott and Rai, to earn the trio the night’s three game stars. Returning goalie Mark Menicucci also got off to a good start, stopping all seven shots in the first 10 minutes before an injury forced him to pull out in favour of keeper Brendan Sharp. Unfortunately, Menicucci is likely to be out and healing for more than just this game, according to Harkins. The Kodiaks also outshot the Panthers 59-40, however, they couldn’t score on their five power plays, while visitors scored on two of seven. Spencer McHaffie opened the night’s scoring at 1:33 of the first, Cole Gastel from Jackson Waniek netted one a few seconds later, followed by Jean-Phillip Bouchard from Adam Plonski at 12:19, and the McHaffies-Rai line put the Kodiaks up 4-0 at 14:46. At this point the Panthers came back with their two power plays, at 18:08 and 19:56, to end the first at 4-2. The Kodiaks owned the second period, scoring three more, starting with the McHaffies-Rai line at 1:34. That was followed by Waniek, unassisted, at 9:30 and Stefan Gonzales from captain Daniel Higgs and Rai at 12:39. Already up 7-2 the Kodiaks scored twice more in the third before the Panthers closed the game with a goal at 8:45. Kodiaks scorers were Brandon Dolby from Matthew Lloyd and Stephen Ryan at 7:52 and McHaffies-Rai at 8:29.
