Record-breaking donation to food bank The need for support is strong this season

100 AND COUNTING

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A record-breaking amount of food was delivered to the Abbotsford Food Bank and Christmas Bureau on Saturday. The Fraser Valley Auto Mall Food Drive, held in partnership with Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and Save-On-Foods, collected 8.5 tons of food – worth about $30,000. Donations were collected at the eight auto mall dealerships, Automall Autobody, two SaveOn-Foods locations in Abbotsford, through a door-to-door canvass by firefighters and through a donation from PriceSmart Foods. The food was loaded onto a SaveOn-Foods truck, and a convoy of vehicles, including the Abbotsford Police, accompanied the truck to the Abbotsford Food Bank on Saturday morning for the drop-off. Dave Murray, executive director of the food bank, said it is the largest single donation that the organization has ever seen. “It was quite something. It was really remarkable,” Murray said. He said the contribution will help considerably in a year that has seen record numbers of people registering for support over the holiday season. Murray said the Christmas Bureau had handed out food hampers and gifts to about 1,000 families as of Monday morning. He said volunteers had prepared Continued on A5

Felger acquitted of drug charges Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Pot activist Tim Felger has been acquitted of all charges related to accusations that he had sold marijuana out of his downtown Abbotsford store in 2009. Felger, 55, faced seven charges – six counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking – but he was acquitted last Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack after Justice Brian Joyce ruled that a police search of Felger’s Da Kine store, located at that time on Essendene Avenue, had breached his charter rights.

Felger was evicted from the location in March 2010 by court order after the owner of the building, Dan Banov, alleged that Felger owed him about $53,000 in back rent. Felger disputed the claim, saying he owns half the building and his rent was paid in full. He has launched a civil suit against Banov. After his eviction from the Abbotsford location, Felger set up Das Bhang, a “political office” and store on Horne Street in Mission. He was charged in early 2011 with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking involving that location.

A $20,000 donation from the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) will go toward the creation of a water feature in the future garden of Holmberg House, an adult hospice set to break ground in January. The donation was made Friday to the Abbotsford Hospice Society (AHS), which is currently raising funds for the construction of Holmberg House. The facility is part of the Campus of Care project – adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital – which also features Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children with severe disabilities. The 10-bed Holmberg House will care for pa-

The FVREB serves the communities of North Delta, Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford and Mission. For more information, visit fvreb.bc.ca.

Holmberg family donates $100,000 Will provide radiation therapy equipment at BC Cancer Agency

Abbotsford philanthropist Dave Holmberg has made a $100,000 donation to the BC Cancer Foundation in support of high-tech radiation therapy equipment at the BC Cancer Agency Abbotsford Centre. Cancer has deeply impacted the Holmberg family. Just 18 months after losing his eldest son, David Jr., to brain cancer, Holmberg received a diagnosis of multiple myeloma – a cancer of the plasma cells. He has now completed treatment, which consisted of 27 rounds of radiation therapy from BC Cancer Agency specialists, who Holmberg describes as “highly skilled and compassionate.” A community leader in the agricultural equipment business for 45 years, Holmberg said he was motivated to make the $100,000 gift because he knows the importance of having the best equipment available. He also recognizes the world-leading advancements in cancer knowledge and care occurring in B.C. and believes in the value of research.

A clinical trial gave David Jr. 17 months of added time with his family until he passed away at age 48. “I have no doubt that the clinical trial treatments gave David extra time,” Holmberg said. “Anything we can do as a public to help move research forward is truly important.” More than 1,000 patients are treated with radiation therapy at the Abbotsford Centre each year. “Radiation therapy is a critical component in cancer care, which is ever-advancing,” said Dr. Nisar Ahmed, radiation oncology leader at BC Cancer Agency in Abbotsford. “This generous gift from the Holmberg family will help ensure we have the latest, most technologically advanced systems for our patients in Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley.” The Holmberg family also made a recent $500,000 donation to the Abbotsford Hospice Society’s adult hospice, named Holmberg House in memory of Dave Jr. That facility will be located on the Campus of Care project adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital and is expected to open in the spring or summer of 2014.

NewsBytes school security addressed Abbotsford school district staff and staff at local schools will be reviewing their emergency operating procedures, following the shooting massacre of 26 children and adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. Kevin Godden, school district superintendent, responded to the tragedy in a letter to parents on Friday afternoon. Godden said staff will review emergency procedures, including intruder alerts and lockdowns, to ensure “we are all up-todate and vigilant.” He advised parents to guard preschool and elementary-aged children from exposure to media reports about the shooting, and to watch for signs that kids might need support. He said school counsellors are available to assist any child with questions or concerns. “It is understandable that there will be some anxiety about this incident,” he said. The letter, and an accompanying tip sheet to help kids in times of grief, can be found on the school district website at sd34.bc.ca.

A convoy of vehicles in the Fraser Valley Auto Mall Food Drive, held in partnership with Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and Save-On-Foods, made its way to the Abbotsford Food Bank and Christmas Bureau on Saturday, delivering a record-breaking eight tons of donations.

Fundraising goal at halfway point From A1

100 more hampers than they did for last year’s holiday campaign, and there were none left heading into the busiest period – the week before Christmas. But Murray said more will be prepared, using donations from the auto mall food drive, as well as from school food drives wrapping up this week. The demand on toys and gifts has also been strong. “Our toy stock is virtually depleted. We’re usually left with about a year’s supply, but we’re going to go into next Christmas (with empty shelves),”

Murray said. Gifts for pre-teens and teens are particularly needed, although Murray recommends that people designate cash for gifts because the food bank can make it go further. For example, he can buy gift cards in bulk and receive some for free. Murray said his biggest concern is with the food bank’s fundraising goal. Funds from the weekend were still being tallied, but Murray estimated that the $600,000 goal hadn’t yet reached the halfway point. “I’m concerned. It would be nice to be at about $100,000 more than we are,” he said. Funds raised during the Christmas sea-

Despite some serious financial hardships, the Ledgeview Golf Society has decided to continue operating Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Course. The interim board of directors held a members’ meeting on Saturday to discuss the decision. After running the course successfully for the past 30 years, the club lost $112,000 in 2010, $240,000 in 2011 and is expecting to lose $150,000 this year. The group was created in 1978 to run the cityowned public golf facility. In May, the city granted Ledgeview $115,000, including $65,000 in rent forgiveness and $50,000 toward capital improvements. The new board is currently trying to restructure the organization. If the society’s financial situation does not improve, the group would eventually have to shut down and leave the facility’s operation to the City of Abbotsford.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Tuesday, December 18, 2012

A waste of ‘green’? The decision by a majority of council members to put the brakes on a major, and necessary, sustainability study defies good stewardship. In the works for months, consuming many hours of city staff time, and involving more than $300,000 – including public funds – the four separate reports were put on indefinite hold by council last week. Ranging from economic sustainability to mountain development guidelines, the reports provide a vision for environmental sustainability, as well as “green” economic strategies. As importantly, this move places millions of dollars in federal gas tax grants at risk. Some members of council were apparently concerned that the studies contained public policy, some of which may not be applicable or affordable. If that’s the case, then we must presume it’s possible to rewrite portions of the reports, or simply make

adjustments going forward, rather than freeze all four projects. As for affordability, surely the investment of these sums of money in what ostensibly were to be roadmaps for the future, was something council considered before making the financial commitment. For that matter, if the content of the studies are not what some members of council anticipated, it would be a logical question to ask what direction was given to the reports’ creators, before all this effort, time and money was expended? Surely this wasn’t just an empty exercise to meet federal requirements to qualify for gas tax revenue. Mayor Bruce Banman maintains that council’s vote to merely receive this body of work is only a temporary stop for another closer look. That had best be the case, otherwise this appears to be an investment of taxpayers’ money and resources, with nothing to show for it.

Easy way to check roads before venturing out Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand If you’re wishing for a white Christmas, I’d rather you kept it to yourself, at least in the Lower Mainland. The snow I’m looking at through the window this morning is anything but festive, deposited with a sloppy cold rain in a driving windstorm that knocked out power Sunday night and made driving treacherous. I like snow; dry cold snow in the Interior that squeaks underfoot and actually provides some traction for the tires. The wet slop, and the mounds of slush it creates on the roads throughout the Fraser Valley, is none of that. Yet this is the time of year when a great many people make the trek to and from points north and east of Hope to join friends and family for Christmas gatherings. Knowing

beforehand what to expect on your travels is not only helpful, it can be lifesaving. That is why the BC Highway Cams are a valuable, yet often overlooked tool for the traveller. In the winter, and that’s almost anytime between September and June on the Coquihalla, Fraser Canyon or Highway 97 North, my first look at what may be on the road ahead is always a check on the “real time” highway cameras. Every couple of minutes or so, they are updated with video snapshots of current road conditions as well as providing both air and road temperatures (indicates the potential for freezing rain) along with other pertinent information. And with some 290 of them on roads near and far, there aren’t very many locations across this vast province that a ‘highway cam’ can’t deliver up-to-date data to your computer or smart phone. Even if you’re not planning an epic road trip, when the weather is nasty here and that northeaster blows snow into white-out conditions, you can

check out what’s happening on the freeway at your doorstep. There is a camera on Sumas Prairie at Cole Road, three at Bradner Road, and four each at the Clearbrook and McCallum interchanges. All along Highway 1 from Horseshoe Bay to Hope, current images of road condi-

The BC Highway Cams are a valuable, yet often overlooked tool for the traveller.

tions allow you to plan (or cancel) your trip knowing what you are going to be up against, and to prepare for that by having in the vehicle what you need to keep warm should you find yourself in an inextricable snowdrift. Anyone planning to attempt the Coquihalla this time of year without checking out the webcams that broadcast from nine weather-ugly points is a potential candidate for a starring

role in the reality-TV series “Highway Through Hell.” That show, in case you’ve never seen it, features a Hopebased towing company that throughout the winter extricates wrecked and stuck vehicles all over the Coq and Canyon. Interesting show, providing a vicarious visit to disaster scenes essentially in our own backyard, and definitely worth watching if you ever drive our mountain passes in winter (the program actually airs in the spring, following accumulation of suitable footage from the previous winter season of snow, slush and stuck semis). In the form of a helpful hint to get you through winter driving on some of the most unforgiving roads in the world: simply ‘Google’ BC Highway Cams and click on the region or route of your choice. Forty-seven more were added this year to the array of cameras at strategic locations along most every highway in the province. Safe travelling this Christmas, and please do all you can to avoid becoming front-page fodder as a highway statistic. markrushton@abbynews.com

letters Card a good thing to do Operation Resolution truly is a deed of true kindness and compassion by the Abbotsford Police officers. The Christmas card initiative, employed by Police Chief Bob Rich and his crew, is intended to send a message to encourage better decisions to the inner-self of a wandering soul. The power of kindness is said to be the golden chain by which society is bound together. When I watch the genuine love shown by Derek Hoare for his autistic daughter (The News, Dec. 11), I am convinced that many a parent still nestles those very same feelings deep down in their hearts for their incarcerated, lawbreaking child of theirs. Yes, each one of those offenders is someone’s dear child. In this season of joy, the thoughts and prayers of other mothers will turn to suffering parents who carry this heavy burden each new day. I like to believe that there is something good in every soul on earth simply because our Creator did not create misfits, they simply

developed that way. Operation Resolution is a little like plucking a thistle and trying to plant a flower instead. It is a good thing to do, although, it be slightly different in style than portraying the true meaning of Christmas, which does not need to be camouflaged or shielded by a heavy weapon and tactical gear, but is shouted all over the world, bringing the good news of salvation for each and everyone. I am convinced I speak for many others by sending a word of deep appreciation to our police officers for their positive actions of sending a card to encourage and offer a better solution to  the soul whose life has gone terribly wrong somewhere along the line. May the influence of your example spread far and wide. And, by the way, Chief Rich and policing staff, thanks so much for your diligent protection of us all throughout the year.    Gertie Pool    Abbotsford

Last Monday, city council aborted a year-long program helping Abbotsford develop a sustainable future. The project, in its final draft stages, and after many studies and community consultations with business, industry, agriculture, and hundreds of citizen participants, was funded

with grants that we will now be required to return out of taxpayers’ pockets. We may also lose  millions in provincial gas tax credits accessible only to communities that have sustainability policies in place.  That council, after many years of  acknowledging  the importance of integrated

planning, and after developing an official community plan reflecting the values inherent in sustainable principles, would turn its back on a supporting and guiding vision is simply unbelievable. We are only beginning to understand that environmental health is just as im-

First of all, kudos to the Abbotsford Police Department for their outstanding work in quelling the gang violence in our city. Their work has been excellent and should set a standard for the rest of the country. However, to take the second most peaceful and loving figure in our society, and put an automatic weapon in his hands is ludicrous. As an ex-combat soldier, I am appalled.  What is next:  Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, armed with an RPG?  Imagine an innocent child glancing through the newspaper and seeing his beloved Santa in full fighting order. Please. Thinking outside the box? Too far I say.   M.A. Thomson Abbotsford

A traffic stop by Abbotsford Police officers on Friday night resulted in the seizure of $250,000 cash in U.S. currency and a 9mm handgun with a loaded magazine. The incident began at about 7 p.m., when a bike squad officer saw a white mini van travelling slowly along the Canada-U.S. border in the Sumas Prairie area of Abbotsford. The officer noticed several people in the van, includ-

ing two men wearing camouflage clothing. Officers, including patrol division members, then stopped the vehicle at Vye and Whatcom roads, and discovered there were two Canadian and two Mexican citizens inside the van. Future charges are being considered, and the Mexicans are being held by immigration authorities.

Did you know? Many Christmas traditions are older than some celebrants might think. The tradition of lighting up a Christmas tree, for example, dates back to the days before Christmas lights. Before electric-powered twinkle lights were invented and even before electricity was discovered, people used actual candles to adorn the Christmas tree. As one can imagine, having an open flame next to a dried-out tree was risky, so it was customary to keep a bucket of water next to the tree in the case of fire. As if fire wasn’t enough, the tinsel used to decorate trees was made from strips of silver and even lead — something that is now known to be a health hazard to adults and children alike. Although we’ve come a long way since candles and lead, even now trees that are overly dry and decorated with lights that have frayed wires can just as easily lead to fires. Plus, plastic tinsel can be a choking hazard for children and pets. One Christmas staple that has lost its status as a safety hazard is the poinsettia plant. It has long been thought that poinsettias are poisonous to people and animals. While there is some toxicity to the plant, it would require the ingestion of hundreds of leaves to get a toxic dose of a plant’s poison.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Think twice before giving pets as holiday gifts Many people consider pets great holiday gifts. But in spite of their popularity as presents, pets do not always make the most appropriate holiday gift. Giving a pet as a present seems like a great idea, but shoppers might want to give it more consideration before giving a gift that is such a considerable responsibility. A puppy at Christmas may be given with good intentions, but that well-meaning sentiment can easily backfire, ending with the pet being given up for adoption when recipients don’t feel up to the task of raising a pet. In such instances, the companion animal pays the steepest price. The hectic nature of the holiday season can be a difficult time for a pet to grow acclimated to its new environment. He or she may be frightened to assimilate or take longer to settle down. Pets often need several weeks of quiet and constant care to become comfortable in their new environments. Here are some other reasons why the holidays are not a good time for new pets. • Holiday visitors may frighten the new pet and he or she may become weary of strangers at the outset. • The activities in the household may pose safety hazards for the young animal. An abundance of rich foods and various decorations could be ingested, potentially causing illness. • New pets should be carefully supervised around children to see how they behave. A child may not be accustomed to handling a puppy or kitten and could injure the animal. Similarly, the pet may be skittish and lash out at the child. Adults busy with holiday obligations may be easily distracted and miss how their child is interacting with the new pet. • Once the glow of the holidays wear off, children may be disillusioned with the new responsibility that has fallen into their hands. They may not like the responsibility that comes with being a good pet owner. Reputable pet breeders and animal shelters often discourage individuals from adopting or purchasing pets as holiday gifts. Many organizations and animal businesses require a careful vetting of potential pet parents to ensure the animal will be placed with a family and in a home that is suitable. Animal welfare groups warn that an estimated 50 percent of pets adopted

during the holidays end up right back at shelters. This can scar the pet. Avoid the temptation of giving a companion animal as a present. If it is your intention to gift an

animal, talk to the gift recipient and discuss the pros and cons beforehand. Then you can work together and make the right decision for all parties involved, including the pet.

Vi met and married a millworker when she was 17 years old. “I was far too young, but I was mesmerized, you could say, and I just couldn’t live without him!” she said.

Vi Fraser received a visit from Mayor Bruce Banman at her 100th birthday celebration on Dec. 12.

World War started, there were plenty of jobs available, and Vi found work at Hudson’s Bay. “The minute I got a couple of dollars, I went back to England. And then I went to Alaska – oh, the size of it! I

went in July, and you couldn’t see anything but mosquitoes, they were so thick, like a cloud!” she recalled. When Vi was 60, she married a longshoreman, and they shared a happy 25 years together before he died in 1996.

“We got along like a million dollars because we understood one another. Not only that, he took me around. I think I fished in every creek and park in Alberta and B.C. He made a lot of money, and I drove around in a Cadillac. See? There’s life after 50!” After his death, Vi lived independently in an Abbotsford townhome until, at the age of 99, she moved into Hallmark retirement residence. She continues to live out her love of exploration. When asked what her dreams are now, her response is instant: “Writing,” she says. “I want to write my life story!”

An 82-year-old Hope woman was killed in a head-on collision on Highway 1 near the Bradner Road rest stop in Abbotsford on Saturday morning. As she pulled out of the rest stop in a 2005 four-door Buick Allure, she entered the westbound lanes of Highway 1 heading east. She crashed into a family from Chilliwack in a 2003 Mazda3 hatchback heading west at about 10:45 a.m. The 29-year-old Chilliwack man and his 24-year-old wife sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Their three-month old baby was unharmed. “This tragic loss of life has impacted a family forever,” RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said in a news release. “This is a time of year when families come together and celebrate the holidays, but unfortunately a family now grieves the loss of a beloved family member.” The name of the deceased woman was not released pending notification of kin.

Students help families

Students at A b b o t s f o r d Christian School’s secondary campus collected more than 170 gifts and $700 in grocery store gift cards for families in need this Christmas.

The students gathered the donations over several months and donated the items to the Dinner of Hope, which took place Dec. 15 at Garden Park Tower in Abbotsford.

Tracycakes makes Top 10

B.C.ers have voted, and Abbotsford’s Tracycakes Bakery Cafe has been named one of the top 10 best small businesses in the province as part of the Small Business BC Successful You Awards Contest (SYA). Tracycakes Bakery Cafe is competing for the Best Company Award, recognizing the business that best demonstrates exceptional leadership, as well as a proven track record of growth and profitability. Throughout the last two months, the company gained enough online votes from the community to be named a top-10 finalist. The SYA recognizes the contributions made by outstanding B.C. entrepreneurs in six award categories. This year’s finalists come from diverse sectors such as technology, hospitality, tourism and health care. The winners will be announced on Feb. 28, 2013 in Vancouver at the Successful You Awards Ceremony. More information on the finalists and the Successful You Awards can be found at www.successfulyou.ca.

A group of volunteers prepared a Christmas dinner that included gifts for the kids, face painting, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, multicultural entertainment, and free clothing to over 350 people. Each family received a photo of themselves with Santa.

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Police have obtained video that shows a woman who was pushing a stroller and walking with two young children narrowly missed being hit by a car while in a crosswalk on Monday. The woman was only feet behind a 64-year-old man who was struck by the vehicle at Hillcrest Avenue and Parkview Street at about 2:30 p.m. The man was thrown about 50 feet and was taken to hospital with a broken leg and suspected head injuries. Const. Ian MacDonald said video obtained from a nearby home shows the

man walking north in the crosswalk when he was struck by a westbound Volkswagen Jetta driven by a 73-year-old woman. MacDonald said several witnesses came to the man’s aid, but the woman with the young children did not appear to remain on the scene. As well, there is no record of her having spoken to police. MacDonald said it is likely the woman quickly left the scene due to the trauma it would have caused the kids. But police would like to talk to her to obtain a witness statement and to find out whether any of them require follow-up support. The woman, or anyone who might know who she is, is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.

Mossey is the mom of Tyler Miller, who died a year ago at the age of 20 after consuming the drug ecstasy.

While users have been able to make online donations to the foundation in the past, the new website clearly lists all of the facilities and programs under the foundation’s umbrella and simplifies the giving process, said executive director Vicki Raw. The FVHCF raises funds for hospitals in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope and Mission, as well as multiple residential care facilities – the Christine Morrison Hospice, the Agassiz Community Health Centre and community-based health-care programs throughout the Fraser Valley. The foundation will soon launch a campaign for the new 200-bed complex care facility at Mission Memorial Hospital.

Pilots’ big win upstaged by brawl 37 games’ worth of suspensions handed out Dan KINVIG and Adrian MacNAIR Black Press

The Abbotsford Pilots’ 8-1 triumph over the Delta Ice Hawks on Friday was their most impressive win of the season to date, but it won’t be remembered as such. Late-game shenanigans overshadowed the actual hockey, as the simmering rivalry b e tween t h e two junior B clubs boiled over at MSA Arena. Fifty-one seconds after a power play goal by Pilots forward Dakota Schipper made it 8-1 in the third period, a line brawl broke out. Both goalies got involved, three Delta players left the bench to join the melee, and 37 games’ worth of suspensions were handed down in the aftermath. Additionally, Pilots coach Jim Cowden was twice struck by pucks fired into the Abbotsford bench by Delta players – he said one hit him in the leg, and another got him on the side of the

Heat winger Krys Kolanos tries to jam the puck past Texas Stars goalie Cristopher Nilstorp on Friday at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Nilstorp stymied the Heat in a 3-1 Texas win, but Kolanos scored a goal in regulation and notched the shootout winner in Abbotsford’s 2-1 triumph on Saturday.

Brust outshines Stars as Heat salvage split

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

It was hardly a stellar weekend on home ice for the Abbotsford Heat, but they managed a split against the Texas Stars thanks to another brilliant performance from goalie Barry Brust. Brust turned aside 39 of 40 shots in regulation and overtime on Saturday, and T.J. Brodie, Roman Horak and Krys Kolanos scored in stylish fashion in the shootout as the Heat pulled off a 2-1 victory at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

GIVING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

When you give to others in need, it activates regions of your brain associated with pleasure, social connection, and trust, creating a “warm glow” effect. Scientists also believe that altruistic behavior releases endorphins in the brain, producing the positive feeling known as the “helper’s high.”

GIVING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

But the contest was only close for one period. After Schipper and Delta’s Matthew Dawson exchanged goals in the early going, Abbotsford exploded for seven unanswered. Michael Tebbutt (2), Adam Rossi (2), Devon Allenby and Brandon Daase found the net, and Schipper capped the scoring barrage with his second of the game at 11:03 of the third period. Abbotsford’s last four goals of the game came on the power play. But shortly after Schipper’s second tally, the brawl ensued. According to Cowden, his players tried to avoid scrapping by “turtling,” but ultimately had to defend themselves. Once order had been restored, 12 game misconducts were doled out – five to Pilots players and seven to the Ice Hawks. Delta’s damage included a match penalty to Ryan Rana for sucker-punching Abby forward Brady Lawlor; additional minors to Brent Chreptyk, Grange Gordon and David Rudin for leaving the bench; and a penalty to goalie Scott Lapp for crossing the centre red line to get involved. On Monday, Rana was suspended nine games by BC Hockey, which handles all match and gross misconduct penalties. Additional Delta suspensions from the PJHL included six games for Chreptyk; three apiece to Gordon and Lapp; two each to Rudin and Jeremy Gossard; and one to Anthony Brito. Five Pilots – Allenby, Ryan Parmar, Luke Venema, Eric Wieking and goalie Aaron Oakley – were banned two games apiece for being multi-fight participants in the last 10 minutes of the game. Ryan Hotner was suspended one game after picking up a game misconduct at the end of regulation. Delta general manager Peter Zerbinos pointed out that the brawl occurred while his team was shorthanded, and that after one Ice Hawks player was escorted off, Chreptyk hopped over the boards to because his teammates were outnumbered. Gordon and Rudin followed.

Home court advantage paid off handsomely for the Rick Hansen Hurricanes senior basketball teams on the weekend. The Hansen girls won gold at their annual Roundball Classic tournament, while the boys took silver. The girls won all three of their games by double digits, beating Chilliwack’s Unity Christian 7232, Langley Christian 69-48, and Rutland 52-39 in the final. Hurricanes forward Daya Bhogal was named tourney MVP after averaging 17.3 points per game, and teammates Simran Sidhu and Sarb Dhillon were picked for the all-star team. “We moved the ball around very well,” analyzed Bo Sidhu, Hurricanes athletic director and assistant girls basketball coach. “We were struggling early on in the season with that – it was one pass and we’d shoot the ball or drive to the basket. We weren’t being very patient, but it’s starting to come. The girls are waiting for their chance for a good shot, rather than force something early.” The Hansen boys beat a pair of Continued on A28

Cowden accuses Ice Hawks of shooting puck at him dressing room. But having talked to the referee supervisor and his own team, he denied it was deliberate. “You never want to see anybody get hurt, especially a coach with no equipment on,” he said. “I’ve been hit in the face with a puck by my own team when we were penalty killing.”

Heat seek to be sharper

From A23

but they’re weathering a dry spell offensively. They’ve mustered just nine goals in their last seven games, and were fortunate to get the two points on Saturday. “It’s been a little bit of a tough stretch for us,” Ward acknowledged. “We haven’t played probably as well as we did earlier in the year, but that’s inevitable. I thought the thing that did come out (Saturday) was a little bit of our resiliency, which we showed earlier in the year . . . We didn’t have a great weekend series, but we hung in there. “We were a little sharper mentally – that was the difference. We were a little more on top of it. But our skill level, some of our puck play and things like that, still isn’t where it has been in the past.” ICE CHIPS: n The Heat assigned forwards Adam Estoclet, Michael Ferland and David Eddy to the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL on Friday, and on Monday, they recalled defenceman Nick Tuzzolino. n  Up next for the Heat is a six-game road trip, and they open against the Chicago Wolves on Wednesday.

Roundball Classic events continue

From A25

Maple Ridge teams to punch their ticket to the final. They crushed Thomas Haney 99-29, then beat Samuel Robertson Technical 64-43. The Hurricanes dropped a 75-52 decision to Pinetree of Coquitlam in the gold medal game. Pinetree is a AAA program, while Hansen plays in the AA league. Harjot Ghuman and Zach Toews of the Hurricanes earned all-star nods. “I’m happy with how we played overall,” Hurricanes coach Sukhpaul Dhaliwal said. “But we turned the ball over a lot in the final game.” The senior tournaments are part of an expanded slate of Roundball Classic events at Hansen this year. The school hosts a junior girls tourney this week, running Thursday through Saturday, and they also have junior boys (Jan. 10-12), Grade 8 boys (Jan. 17-19) and Grade 7 boys (Feb. 9-10) competitions coming up.
