Deadlocked vote denies dancing at Chances

■ M EDAL C EREMONY

Application faces stiff opposition from local bar owners Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Customers looking for entertainment at the new Chances community gaming centre still can’t get up and dance. An application from Chilliwack Gaming Ltd./The Well for a permanent change to its food primary licence failed to get approval by council at the last meeting. Chances officials were applying for an “entertainment endorsement” that would allow dancing, talent shows, singalongs and other types of patron interaction at the Chances restaurant, called The Well, as well as on the patio. Council voted twice on the matter Tuesday night, once to deny the motion and the next time to approve it. Both times the deadlocked vote was a 3-3 tie, so the application ultimately failed. (Councillor Sue Attrill was not at the meeting.) Mayor Sharon Gaetz, who voted in favour after arguing the applicant had satisfied the requirements, said another hearing will be required if the applicant wants to bring it back for another attempt. “In accordance with the City of Chilliwack procedural bylaw, should the vote be equal for or against a motion, the motion is defeated,” reads a press release sent out the morning after the meeting. “The item can be brought back by the applicant again in the future, or brought back for reconsideration within 30 days by the Mayor or a majority of the members of council, at which time a subsequent public information meeting will again be required.” Corky’s Pub owner Bob Harms sent a letter of opposition to council about the

Two suspected brothels busted: RCMP Six arrested in latest downtown sweep Robert Freeman The Progress

Two Chilliwack massage parlors suspected of offering sexual services to customers face the possible suspension of business licences after six arrests were made during the RCMP’s latest push to end prostitution here. “Prostitution, whether it occurs out in the open or under the pretense of a legitimate business, is not only a significant social issue because of the high risk nature of the trade, it is also a priority at a national level for police because of potential links

to organized crime,” Sgt. Steve McLeod, head of the RCMP’s crime reduction unit, said in a news release Wednesday. Police said a search warrant executed Jan. 12 at a business in the 8300-block Young Road resulted in the arrest of three females and one male customer, a 48-year-old woman from Langley, a 44-year-old woman from Coquitlam, a 70-yearold woman from the Lower Mainland area, and a 41-year-old man from Chilliwack. All were released from custody on promises to return to court in April. A second search Jan. 19 of

a business in the 9200-block Young Road resulted in the arrest of a 38-year-old “female worker,” police said, a Hong Kong woman in Canada on a visitors visa, and a 38-year-old “male customer” from Saskatchewan. They were also released from custody on promises to return to court. McLeod said there is no indication at this point that the two business are linked to each other, or connected to organized crime or human trafficking. “But investigators continue the process to rule that out conclusively,” he added. The names of the two busi-

nesses and the six people detained were not released. Last spring in Chilliwack, street-level prostitutes and their customers were targeted by police resulting in a “significant decline” in the number of hookers seen in the downtown area. Police said the second phase of that enforcement effort saw the two businesses searched after “a thorough investigation revealed that local businesses were operating under the umbrella of providing massage services, but were suspected of offering sexual services to their customers.” Continued: POLICE/ p4

Trash talk: Organics are the next step, says Chilliwack mayor Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Organics diversion is going to be the next big thing in waste collection on the local front. City of Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley Regional District are actively exploring the possibility of regional composting of items like food scraps, said Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “There are a few good reasons for regional composting. For one, it’s difficult to get an area that would allow composting in the middle of a city because of the odours, and because of land constraints. So it’s one of a few things we’ve been looking at.” In fact several municipalities have already moved toward collecting and composting organic waste to reduce volumes ending up in the landfill. For the 24 municipalities of Metro Vancouver, many are now ramping up to meet a 2015 organics ban from the waste stream. “I think Chilliwack has done a great job obviously with recycling, but we can do one better. Organics will be the next step,” Gaetz said. City officials conducted a “waste audit” at the Bailey Landfill to see what percentage of the waste is organic materials, including food, pet waste and yard trimmings. It turns out, food waste is the number one material in the waste stream by weight, coming in at a whopping 29 per cent. In response, city staff is assessing two recommendations. One is the expansion of the composting program for industrial/commercial/ institutional waste to include food, paper towels and other fibre waste

Diversion of organic waste would extend the life of the Bailey Landfill. Progress File

that can be composted. The other idea is expanding the curbside residential organics program to accept all of these items. City staff has already been studying the possibility for a couple of years now. “I think people are ready,” said Gaetz about the prospect of buy-in from residents. Sometimes reducing curbside garbage collection to once every two weeks is used as incentive in some places to reduce the organics volume, she said. The topic erupted recently on a Facebook page started by Gaetz to emphasize the positive things about

living in Chilliwack, called “Life in the Wack.” The mayor said the posters’ comments about wanting to see food scraps composted “were very timely” since the city was actively investigating the idea. “It was exciting for me to see that kind of response,” she said later. City and FVRD officials are working together on developing a cohesive organics program for the region. FVRD netted 15 responses to its 2012 Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) for a Regional Composting Operation. “The City is assisting them to go

to the next step by providing the necessary information to develop a business case analysis of each option,” she said. “The new report is due this month so stay tuned we should have more information in the very near future.” There’s also a lot of interest coming from the contractors in the waste industry. “Compost is such a marketable commodity,” said Gaetz. “Food scraps which would have turned into methane can be a product to enhance gardens.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

Century of Progress pages to be digitized Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Imagine having a searchable database with 100 years of Chilliwack Progress newspapers available online. That’s the plan for 2013 by Chilliwack Museum and Archives with its $25,000 Chilliwack Progress Digitization Project. Why digitize the Progress? “Our visitors want and expect it,” according to the application. “As information technologies continue to improve, the public is becoming accustomed to quick and easy access to information.” The future “demands” it, but not only that, The Progress is one of the most used resources at the museum as “one of our community’s oldest and most important written record collections.” Council approved a funding request from the museum for $5,000 under the Community Development Initiatives Funding Policy on Tuesday — contingent on other funding partners coming through with their contributions as outlined in the project budget. In the city staff report, other examples of revenue sources for the project include Chilliwack Foundation ($5,000), Irving Barber Learning Centre ($13,000), and about $2,000 from fundraising. The bulk of the project cost is expected to be spent on microfilm scanning, and converting files to PDF format.

Chilliwack’s top cop retiring Robert Freeman The Progress

RCMP Superintendent Keith Robinson is retiring as officer in charge of the Upper Fraser Valley regional detachment, effective Feb. 1. The detachment’s media liaison officer confirmed Robinson’s retirement Wednesday, and said many applications have been submitted for the “prime” position in the Upper Fraser Valley. The successful applicant will also require approval by the mayors of the four communities in the region. Robinson, who worked the Fraser Valley beat for more than 30 years as a general duty officer and

in a variety of other roles, including intelligence and administration, took over the helm of the detachment in August, 2009. The region had seen a number of “top cops” come and go in the space of a few years. Policing in Chilliwack had also undergone many changes since 2003 when the RCMP detachments in Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope and Harrison Hot Springs merged into a single Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment. Robinson got the nod from valley mayors because of his familiarity with the community and because of the respect he’d earned among RCMP rank and file as a “listening” commander.

He also understood the constraints of municipal finances. A crime reduction strategy adopted across the region targets prolific offenders, deemed responsible for most property crimes, and identifying crime “hot spots” in each of the four communities to focus limited police resources. Robinson said in a news release last year that he was “pleased” with the results of that model, which “provides our police managers a gauge of whether we are winning or losing in our efforts to be pro-active with crime reduction.” See next Tuesday’s Progress for a full interview with Robinson. rfreeman@theprogress.com

In October, 2011, the RCMP arrested 30 sex trade workers and suspected johns in the city’s downtown core.

Gaming centre proposal could be back in 30 days Gaming from Front proposed liquor licence change, saying that Chances officials were “clouding” the distinction between a restaurant and a pub, which was “bad ground to walk on,” he said at the meeting. “It seems to me that Chances, if successful in their current application, would have blurred the line between a restaurant and a pub, and be well on their way to applying for a full Liquor Primary licence, or at the very least a large lounge or holding area, so that they would not have to serve food with liquor and people could walk around with their drinks,” Harms wrote in his letter. The issue of unfair competition came up

more than once. “I see this as a hopeless endeavour,” Harms added before taking his seat again. The long-established pub across the road from Chances, Friendly Mike’s Pub, has taken “a lot of hits,” in recent years, said pub general manager John Toussaint. He also wrote a letter of opposition to council saying the Chances’ licence change would “directly compete” with his business, adding that they had already lost half their business in the last 10 years. “We do not want to compete with pubs,” said Howard Blank, vice-president of Great Canadian Gaming, when he got to the microphone at the hearing. He apologized to

the pub and bar owners, stating that Chances is an “entertainment destination with terrific food.” So far food sales have exceeded their alcohol sales since opening in November.

Auditor offered two-year extension

ce: Constituency Constituency Office: (604)Offi 702-5214

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – B.C. Auditor General John Doyle has been offered a two-year extension that would carry his term to October, 2015, the eight-year mandate suggested by Premier Christy Clark. The five-MLA committee, which includes Chilliwack MLA John Les, announced its

unanimous decision to offer the extension Wednesday, after a closed-door meeting to consider Clark’s suggestion. Clark said the government will present amendments in the legislature in February to create a non-renewable eight-year term for all future provincial auditors. The committee’s B.C. Liberal majority initially rejected the idea of

reappointing Doyle and advertised for a replacement. Committee members are forbidden from speaking publicly about how they voted or rea-

sons why, because it is a personnel matter. Ver non-Monashee MLA Eric Foster, the committee chair, said

Bringing down killers

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

So-called “Mr. Big” stings have found increasing favour among police investigators for gaining convictions in serious criminal cases. Such was the case with the murder of Chelsey Acorn, a 14-year-old Abbotsford girl who ran afoul of a truly chilling father and son duo (Chilliwack Progress, Jan. 22). Acorn went missing from her foster home on June 10, 2005. Her remains were found the following spring, in a shallow grave near the Coquihalla Highway near Hope. Taped confessions heard at the trials of Dustin Moir, now 27, and his father, Jesse West, suggested that the two men had strangled her, pushed her naked body into the hole they had dug, and then dropped a large rock on her head. Possible motives and other details of their heinous crime emerged as they confessed to a police officer posing as a crime boss. It’s a strategy that has taken down a number of killers and other criminals in recent years. Critics of the tactic call it unreliable, primarily because some people – as West himself claimed – will tell lies to impress someone they think is a key crime figure, to reap the benefits after they’re accepted into the fold. Fabricated evidence is a possibility. However, careful investigation will usually sift out the truth, particularly when there is more than one accused telling the tales. And ultimately, there will be a judge and/or jury to weigh the evidence in the context of arguments by defence and Crown. It has been suggested that Mr. Big stings should be rejected by the courts. And if that were so, the killers of an innocent 14-year-old girl would still be on the streets, and possibly taking more victims. That is an utter absence of justice. That is not an option. Thanks to good police work, Moir and West got what they deserved – life in prison with no parole for 25 years. ~ Black Press

The last stand of smart meter deniers’

VICTORIA – The news was trumpeted with alarm here on Vancouver Island, which along with the Gulf Islands is the heartland of tinfoil-hat opposition to smart meters. Of the 140,000 power customers who didn’t have a wireless meter by the end of the year, many have simply refused. Now BC Hydro has sent letters informing them “we can no longer delay the installation of a new meter at your home.” “StopSmartMetersBC” sent out a panicky e-mail advising its resistance movement to brace against “storm trooper tactics” from BC Hydro staff, and urging phone and fax attacks on their local MLA office. “Anger and outrage should be expressed, in a quiet way, so that we don’t sound hysterical, but people are being threatened, police called, etc.,” the anonymous e-mail helpfully suggests.

BC Hydro has also confirmed what I told you a few months ago. Those bogus locks, chicken wire cages and important-looking signs, which were sold like modern-day snake oil, have no legal effect to prevent the utility from working on its own equipment. These obstacles to inspection have been Tom and continue to FLETCHER be removed, along with dangerous grow-op bypasses and fiddled mechanical meters. The technical arguments against wireless meters have been demolished. False news reports and website claims still circulate, but no fires have been attributed to the installation of 1.7 million wireless meters in B.C. About 1,200 faulty meter bases have also been

replaced at BC Hydro’s expense, and as crude power-theft bypasses have been removed, the incidence of electrical fires, already rare, has dropped substantially. Another popular myth is increased electricity bills. Yes, if your bypass is removed, your bill will go up. Like gas pumps, power meters are required by federal law to be accurate. Which brings us back to Team Tinfoil, which has been sold a cascading series of fantastic tales about the effect of wireless signals that are already ever-present in all modern communities. A Toronto-based expert group called Bad Science Watch has tackled  claims of “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” head-on. I highly recommend their 10-page report and qualifications at  www.badsciencewatch.ca. In plain language, with references to the best available scientific

studies, it describes the doubleblind tests that prove people who claim this sensitivity are not actually able to detect when they are or are not being exposed to wireless signals. No X-Men candidates have come forward. It also exposes key “activists” in Canada. The most prominent is Dr. Magda Havas, an associate professor at Trent University who has “developed a career denouncing the safety of low-frequency electromagnetic radiation.” She gives speeches, promotes her book and has worked with one David Stetzer to promote an “EMF filter” to sell to those who insist they feel what science shows they don’t. Havas has appeared on TV “news” shows with “activist-entrepreneur” Kevin Byrne. His website appears to be a hub of cell tower and smart meter scare reports, but it’s interspersed with product pitches for EMF Solutions Canada,

of which Byrne is coincidentally president. Then there’s “entrepreneuractivist” Rob Metzinger, president of something called Safe Living Technologies Inc. He doesn’t run a lurid scare website, but he’s appeared on CBC and CTV as some sort of authority. (The main hazard emanating from TVs these days is bad information.) As the election approaches, a fight is gearing up between the NDP and the B.C. Green Party for the ignorant, superstitious and angry vote. The Greens in particular have damaged their credibility in a desperate bid to quiet their own tinfoil-chapeau wing. There are bozo eruptions ahead. I’ll have more on that in a future column.

NDP called on to stop Kinder Morgan With climate change already at the tipping point, that is foolhardy. 2. The risk of an oil spill is just as real - and catastrophic -  regardless of which project Each project involves transportation of diluted bitumen: so toxic that inhalation of bitumen fumes can cause brain damage and even death (according to Syncrude’s MSDS); so thick it requires extremely high pressure to move, which results in an escalating rate of pipeline temperature - as high as 158 C. The combination of Tar Sands’ unique properties and hazards, and the oil industry track record with leaks ruptures and spills, makes the likelihood of an accident very real.  None of these factors are greater or lesser with this project or that – the profile is just the same. 3. The Kinder Morgan Project would be just as intrusive as Northern Gateway The assumption that a new tar sands pipeline in ‘pristine wilderness’ is somehow more offensive than the same through high density residential areas, elementary school playgrounds and local organic farms, is itself offensive.  Recent incidents have already demonstrated the effects of toxic exposure in our communities.  Schoolchildren have gone home sick and were at risk of respiratory

harm or worse; and the prospect of water supplies such as Chilliwack’s underground water aquifer contaminated by toxic tar sands is horrific and unacceptable. Likewise the risk of contamination of rivers and streams crossed, the threat to salmon habitats, is just as real here as in northern B.C. 4. The Kinder Morgan proposal is not only real – it poses an even greater threat. That Kinder Morgan’s project is every bit as real (and well underway in fact) is borne out by their recent announcement of increased new capacity.  Not only did KM Canada president Ian Anderson announce the new capacity has been bumped up from 750,000 to 850,000 bpd, he is also on record as not ruling out even more increases.  Why?  Because if and when the Enbridge proposal fails, all new pipeline demand would switch over to KM.  The prospect of up to 1.5 million barrel capacity potentially handled in one channel.  The dangers of the pipeline and supertanker traffic would multiply exponentially. I call on the NDP to bring their position in-line-and-consistent as regards Tar Sands and their unacceptable risks, by including Kinder Morgan’s project equally in their “No” position.

Work of Parkinson’s group praised Support Group was to be held at Evergreen Hall. I didn’t know what to expect as I had never been to any sort of support group in my life. Would I need to stand up and tell about my symptoms? Would the group be all shaking? Would they all laugh at me? (My right hand shakes all the time.) Finally, I decided to bite the bullet and go. It was the best decision I could have made, since I have become part of a fantastic group of positive individuals who went out of their way to welcome my wife and I. And, no, I don’t need to bare my soul before

the group; nobody laughed at my shake; and, to this day I cannot tell from looking around the table, who really has the disease and who is the care giver. During the meetings, new information regarding treatments, surveys, and what’s new in the world of Parkinson’s disease is discussed. For instance, a great deal of attention is being focused on the instance of exercise and how it relates to delaying the disease. Some of the talk relates to the medication we take and how we and others react to it. Just recently the owner of Google donated

a total of $130 million to the Michael J. Fox Foundation and personally footed the bill for 10,000 DNA tests to create the world’s largest data bank of those inflicted with this disease. If you or someone you know has Parkinson’s disease then, by all means, let them know the Parkinson’s Disease Support Group meets the second Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. at the Evergreen Hall here in Chilliwack. Do yourself a favour. Come and meet an amazing group of very positive people who will make you or them very welcome indeed.

Open letter to Adrian Dix: I’m perplexed by the NDP’s inconsistent position on Tar Sands expansion projects. In the Jan. 10 edition of the Chilliwack Progress, “NDP won’t oppose Kinder Morgan pipeline yet,” Rob Fleming explains what the NDP views as important differences between the two proposals.  At the Jan. 19 Chilliwack NDP nomination, when again I asked “Why the strong stand on Enbridge and no stand on Kinder Morgan?”, you responded these matters have to be handled progressively - and if they were distinctly different that might be a just approach.  But I would assert that their similarities are overwhelming, and when examined closely challenge the validity of those suggested differences.  To take a truly “principled stance beside businesses, First Nations, communities and ordinary citizens who are opposed to the Enbridge pipeline” as Fleming stated, the NDP needs to be consistent.  Kinder Morgan’s Tar Sands expansion project is equally objectionable – here’s why: 1. The only rationale for any new pipeline projects is to support tar sands expansion. It makes no difference whether it is Enbridge, Kinder Morgan or TransCanada – greater pipeline capacity is predicated on Alberta Tar Sands production expansion.

The Chilliwack Progress   Thursday, January 24, 2013

the decision to reappoint Doyle was unanimous. Foster refused to comment further on how the committee came to accept Doyle’s reappointment, or the decision to limit the term to two more years, except to note that it matches with the intended legislation proposed by Clark. Foster said he notified Doyle of the offer Wednesday morning, and is awaiting a response. Foster was the subject of a random audit by Doyle two years ago that raised questions about his constituency office renovations. The other two B.C. Liberals who form the majority are Chilliwack MLA John Les and Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom, both of whom are not seeking re-election in May. Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA Kathy Corrigan and Surrey-Whalley MLA Bruce Ralston represent the NDP on the committee.

When the initial decision not reappoint Doyle became public last week, opposition MLAs cite Doyle’s reports criticizing the recent buildup of BC Hydro debt and the state of B.C.’s forest inventory in the wake of a devastating pine beetle epidemic as likely reasons.

such a law would apply to all governing parties if it is passed. Previous Social Credit governments engaged in similar pre-election promotional efforts. The current ads have a budget of $15 million, which included paid announcements by Premier Christy Clark aired during Global TV’s evening news. Clark and Jobs Minister Pat Bell have defended the commercials as part of an effort to raise awareness of industrial development and skilled trades training opportunities. Dix said the $15 million budget is about equal to the advertising budgets of both the NDP and B.C. Liberal Parties in the run-up to the 2009 election. Elections BC rules government how much political parties can raise and spend, and limit how much can be spent in each constituency during the pre-election period and the month-long formal campaign. The B.C. Liberal government has made repeated efforts to put stricter limits on pre-election advertising from third parties such as business groups and unions. Those have been rejected in court challenges as infringement on freedom of speech.

Team president weighs in on Chiefs/Grizzlies dust up of the word ‘brawl’ to describe the scene. “I thought the refs did a great job, and I thought the coaches and players, by and large, were very responsible,” Ringdal said. “When it started to happen, a whole lot more could have happened. It didn’t, and that’s a credit to them.” The incident was a hot topic at the league’s most recent board of governors meeting, and Ringdal said there are

already things in place to prevent a future occurrence. “They took immediate action, starting with the idea that inactive players are not going to be allowed to stand near player benches,” he said. “We as a league have grown up. We’re not the bruising, battering bunch we used to be. We are about good, hard-playing hockey. And we need to avoid situations that make us

look the way we don’t want to look.” As of Wednesday afternoon, no charges had been filed, but an investigation by Victoria

police is ongoing. Fleenor was suspended five games by the BCHL and is eligible to return Feb. 1 when Chilliwack visits Salmon Arm.

Trevor Hills got the longest player suspension at four games, serving the last Wednesday night as his Chiefs played Prince George.

Smyl as he asked Grizzlies coach Bill Bestwick and then the game officials to get Albertini out of there. “The referee thought Bestwick could do it, and Bestwick didn’t get the job done,” Ringdal noted. First, Tanner Cochrane engaged Albertini in verbal jousting. Then, Fleenor lost his cool and stuck a stick through an opening between panes of glass. “You want not to react and he reacted. Fleenor got mad and did what he did,” Ringdal said. “He had a stick in his hand and waggled it at the guy, who now complains he was hit by the stick. I don’t know if he was or wasn’t, but an RCMP guy was right there and I thought I saw him pull the stick through the glass, break it in half and hand it back.” The game ended 10 seconds later, and tempers erupted on both sides. But Ringdal said Smyl and Bestwick both did an excellent job keeping their players in line, and he objected to the use

And eye-witness to the Chilliwack Chiefs/ Victoria Grizzlies BCHL fracas of Jan. 12 says some of the things that have been reported through various media aren’t entirely accurate. Chiefs president Glen Ringdal was seated nearby as Grizzlies defenceman Chris Albertini, a healthy scratch that day, emerged from the Victoria dressing room and parked himself next to the Chilliwack bench. As the story goes, Albertini chirped at the Chiefs players and coaches, and claims he was hit in the head by a hockey stick wielded by Chilliwack assistant coach Brandon Fleenor. Ringdal says the reports have understated Albertini’s role in the incident. “The whole thing happened because their player was standing by our bench, chirping at our players and coaches. Incessantly. He wouldn’t stop,” Ringdal elaborated. “He lit the match that started the fire, and now we’re all mad about the fire.” Ringdal watched Chiefs coach Harvey

Christmas Sharing makes dreams come true!

Together, we make sure all families could celebrate Christmas with the same joy and anticipation as others do. Once again, Chilliwack Community Services partnered with the Salvation Army to provide local families in need with a Christmas hamper. Donations of toys and gifts were collected by local businesses, service clubs and families. “Angel trees” were at many locations throughout the city where donations could be dropped off. Community events were held to raise funds and collect toys. Santa’s special elves picked up donations and helped pack hampers at the Christmas Sharing warehouse.

470 hampers 895 children 5,636 toys

SPECIAL THANK-YOU to all the businesses, community groups & volunteers for your generosity and support ...

Mud set to fly at Cultural Centre’s first clay throwing workshops The first classes in the new arts and crafts programs at The Chilliwack Cultural Centre are about to start. As of the middle

of February, skilled professional potters will be coming to the cultural centre with three opportunities for the community to experi-

ence the joy of clay with classes that will offer something for every level of skill. The first class offered is Beginners

Wheel Throwing starting on February 12, 2013. This class will be taught by Sue Schellenburg, owner of “Schellenberg Pottery”

studio and shop in Yarrow. Students will be taken through the entire process from creating on the wheel to the finishing of their

work through glazing and firing. This is an eight week course, with seven weeks of wheel work and the eighth week for glazing. There

will be a one week break between the seventh and eighth class in order for all the work to dry properly prior to firing. Cost is $170+HST. Second is the Beginners Hand Building, this class will take place on Fridays from 10am to 12:30pm, six sessions in total starting February 22, 2013. Under the instruction of master potter Molly Magiåd this program will give the students experience with all the techniques needed for making successful clay articles. Each session will include instructions on handling the material, joining pieces together, and how the clay transforms in all the stages between wet to final glazed piece. Cost is $135. The third class offered is called Continuing Clay and will start on Sunday, March 3 from 1 to 3:30pm and run for six sessions. This course is for the experienced potter and presents an opportunity for further skill building in an open studio setting with peers, and support from qualified, experienced instructors.  Under the tutorship of experienced potters Holly McKeen and Carolyn MacLaren, the weekly project demos and ideas provided are aimed at encouraging students to work on a particular area of interest with on-going coaching and support. Emphasis will be placed on the craftsmanship and quality of the finished project with a focus on the design possibilities of clay in a unique and individual way.  This class caters to both individuals who wish to work on the potter’s wheel as well as hand builders.  Cost is $135+HST and participation is limited to those who have completed an introduction to pottery course. All classes will include clay, glazes and firing in the cost. The Society’s Artistic and Managing Director, Michael Cade, is looking forward to offering a wide range of arts and crafts programming. Registration is through The Centre Box Office or by calling 604-391SHOW(7469).

Graham Osborne: Capturing the beauty of the world around him roundings. If you really took the time to notice or look beyond the obvious, even the most unassuming things could be magically transformed into wondrous beauty. The simple action of a timid flower pushing its

way through the hard ground, a spider’s web being kissed by the sun after a hard rain or a mountain standing majestically in the distance can all bring immense beauty to our lives. For as long as he can remember, Graham Osborne has always had a love for nature,

even the simplest of things. “Wherever we lived, there was always this wonderful creation all around me. I was always playing outside and this was what I appreciated most,” he enthused. He started fly fishing when he was just eight years old; a passion that he still has today. “I love

He had been granted permission to work in the US and had been there for some time when it was discovered that although it was assumed that he would receive his green card, they had been presumptuous in that assessment and if Graham continued to Ana work for Macedo the organization, they were in jeopardy of loosing their non-profit status. This meant that Graham had to leave the country within 24 hours. “There are only so many green cards handed out and I wasn’t

one of the recipients. The problem for me was that before I took the job in Idaho, I had the option of doing four different things here but chose the U.S. option and now those opportunities were gone,” he said. His career was now in limbo. Finding work as a biologist in those days was difficult and Graham was back to square one. “I took on a job with the department of highways as a jackhammer operator. I lasted six months but it was just not for me and I ended up quitting.” Now photography had always been one of Graham’s favourite pastimes. He would often take his camera wherever he went. Whenever he’d go fly fishing, he’d take a

the fishing but most importantly, it’s being out, surrounded by the beauty!” Graham’s father was a Mountie and as a result, the family moved around quite a bit. “We lived in Vancouver, Victoria, Ottawa and for four years, we were in Washington, D.C. What a neat experience that was but we ended coming back so that I could study wildlife biology at UBC while dad headed up CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service) in BC. After receiving his degree, he headed to Silver Creek, Idaho to work as a wildlife biologist for the Nature Conservancy, a wellrespected organization that works to protect and preserve ecologically important lands

camera to photograph aquatic insects. “One time I took my dad’s camera and I fell right into the water. The next Christmas dad bought me a camera and this spurred my interest,” he chuckled. Graham purchased $3,500 of high-end camera equipment and started his career as a wildlife photographer, something that he’s been doing very successfully for the past 22 years. He has become a wellknown, award-winning professional nature photographer specializing in large-format landscape, wildlife and outdoor lifestyle photography. Graham’s work is spectacular and breathtakingly beautiful and he has this incredible, innate ability to capture the essence of each moment. His images have been seen in some of the world’s finest publications including Sierra Club calendars, National Geographic Traveler, Audubon, GEO, Natural History and China Geographic. He has also been a field correspondent with Equinox Magazine and has worked on assignment with a variety of prominent companies including NIKE, Jeep, Air Canada, Beautiful BC and Canadian Geographic. “I’ve been sent in on horseback, raft, zodiac, helicopter and float plane to some of my assignments. I would be left up to a week in some remote area, sometimes with a guide and sometimes by myself. I spent a month in the Queen Charlottes doing a shoot for Parks Canada. I have travelled extensively from Central America all the way up to Alaska and have seen some incredible things,” he reflected.

Graham has been recognized for his outstanding work by receiving numerous, prestigious awards including a Gold Medal in Photojournalism at the International

His fine art prints are also exhibited in galleries worldwide. His images can also be seen closer to home. One of the new BC Ferries showcases one of his large prints. As well, more than half of the images that are featured at YVR’s international arrivals terminal

• Quality of life for families, including income levels and employment status, is directly related to the literacy levels of parents. (IALS 1995/97) • Establishing a culture of learning encourages an exchange of ideas, enriches family relationships, and bolsters confidence and independent thinking. (ABC Life Literacy Canada) • The National Center for Family Literacy’s long-term research with 2,000 families that attended family literacy programs shows that literacy intervention reduced participants’ full dependence on public assistance from 67% to 11%. (Literacy BC) • Researchers estimate that over the lifetime of participants in an early literacy intervention program, returns to the public are $7.16 for every dollar invested. (Schweinhart et al., 1993) • Studies show beyond dispute that children’s achievements in school improve with increased parent involvement in education. (Henderson, 1998)

Not a brawl

As a result of what happened, 12 players were suspended 31 games, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Chiefs take on Tambellini’s Eagles The two teams that made the biggest splash at the BCHL trade deadline clash for the first time since when Chilliwack hosts the Surrey Eagles Friday night at Prospera Centre. The Chiefs picked up Phil Zielonka, and he has fit in fine, with five goals and eight points in five games since coming over from the Coquitlam Express. Helped by a five-point night in a 10-2 win over Langley Jan. 13, new Eagle Adam Tambellini has five goals and 10 points in four games since the deadline. His production helps justify the high price paid to get him. The Eagles dealt 18-year-old forward Mason Blacklock plus futures to the Vipers. Blacklock was just named the BCHL’s player of the week. “We like the way our team

has been playing as of late, and we’re excited to be able to add a proven goal scorer in Adam,” said Eagles coach and general manager Matt Erhart. “But whenever you make a deal where you bring in a player like Adam, you have to give up a quality player in return. Mason has really turned his game around, especially in the last 20 games, and he’ll get an opportunity to be a big part of that Vernon Vipers team and showcase himself for the future.” With Tambellini in tow, the Eagles are a clear contender in the Coastal conference. Surrey has the league’s fourth best offence, averaging 3.33 goals per game. In addition to Tambellini, the Eagles have Brady Shaw, who has 26 goals and 50 points in 40 games.

Michael Stenerson, Demico Hannoun, Drew Best and Brett Mulcahy are all double-digit goal scorers. Abbotsford native Devon Toews brings it from the blueline, with 28 points (eight goals) in 34 games. At the other end, goaltender Michael Santaguida blanked the Chiefs 3-0 the last time he visited Prospera Centre. His 2.26 goals-against average and .934 save percentage put him in the conversation with Chilliwack’s Mitch Gillam as the BCHL’s best goaltender. Saturday night, Chilliwack takes on the Salmon Arm Silverbacks for the first time this season. Salmon Arm sports a record of 18-17-2-3, good for fourth spot in the Interior. The Silverbacks are scrappy, but they struggle to score

goals. Salmon Arm has put 99 pucks in the net this year, tying them with the Cowichan Valley Capitals for worst in the league. The Silverbacks don’t have a point-per-game scorer, nor do they have a 20 goal man. Alex Gillies leads them in snipes with 14. What Salmon Arm does have is a top-notch netminder. 19-year-old Adam Clark is one of two BCHL goaltenders rated by the National Hockey League’s Central Scouting Bureau. His 2.53 goals-against average and .926 save percentage put him among the league leaders. Puck drop for both weekend games is 7 p.m. Check the Chilliwack Progress Tuesday sports section for a full wrapup.

Goals starting to come for Graboski With the addition of Philip Zielonka, the return of Josh Hansen and the imminent return of Ryan Donohoe, the Chilliwack Chiefs could have a deep and talented lineup in place for the stretch drive to the playoffs. Spencer Graboski would like to think he’s a part of that. Lost in the shuffle when folks discuss Chilliwack’s top

six forwards, the Quesnel native is quietly having a season that puts him in the mix. A recent scoring splurge has the 20-year-old up to 11 goals and 21 points in 40 games. Not eye-popping numbers by any stretch. But much of that has come over the last two or three weeks, and Chiefs coach Harvey Smyl believes it’s not

by accident. “We’ve been pushing hard with him to work on his defensive play and responsibilities,” the bench boss noted. “He’s been focusing in on that, and it probably took away from the offensive output early. Now, it looks like he’s feeling comfortable at both ends, and he looks way better.” Once Donohoe gets back

(Smyl’s latest estimate is two weeks), it’s anyone’s guess how the lines will work out. If everyone’s healthy, the top sixers should be Austin Plevy, Luke Esposito, Trevor Hills, Hansen, Zielonka and Donohoe. But if Graboski can provide scoring from the bottom six, it could prove huge come playoff time.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the altercation between the Chilliwack Chiefs and Victoria Grizzlies at the end of their game 11 days ago in Victoria. As a result of what happened on the ice 12 players were suspended for a total of 31 games. That sounds bad, and immediately after it happened people referred to it as a brawl. It wasn’t a brawl. Not even by today’s politically correct standards. Don’t get me wrong, the suspensions, for the most part, were warranted as it happened immediately after the game ended. The video of the altercation is no longer online but I watched it numerous times and it really was not that big of a deal. Had it happened during the game and not after the game, the penalties and suspensions would not have been nearly as severe. Several of the players were suspended for leaving the bench to join an altercation. They did leave the bench. They did join an altercation. But they didn’t leave the bench for the purpose of joining the altercation. They left the bench because the game was over. As they were leaving the bench, some of the players who were on the ice as the game ended got involved in some cross checking, pushing, tripping etc. So yes, some players from both teams that had been on the bench when the game ended got involved. There are rules in place for automatic suspensions when things like this hap-

pen after a game ends, so the suspensions handed out make sense. But that was not a brawl. Two home games for the Chiefs this weekend. Friday the Surrey Eagles are in town. Saturday the Salmon Arm Silverbacks make their lone visit of the season to Prospera Centre. The Chiefs have a Back to Pack Pack promotion for this weekend. Buy two tickets for Friday’s game and get one ticket for Saturday’s game for free. If you want to take advantage of this, it might be a good idea to try and get down to the Prospera box office during the day Friday to avoid the game night lineups. It’s remarkable just how evenly the Chiefs and Eagles match up. Both teams are extremely well balanced and have no real weaknesses. Prior to last night they had each played 40 games. The Chiefs had scored 133 goals, one more than the Eagles. Chilliwack had allowed 102 goals, five fewer than the Eagles. Both teams have league MVP calibre goaltenders. Both teams made a big splash adding offensive weapons at the trade deadline, and both paid steep prices to make those deals happen. Adam Tambellini has five goals and five assists in four games with the Eagles since being added at the deadline from Vernon. Since being acquired from Coquitlam Phil Zielonka has five goals and three assists for Chilliwack. Should be fun. jb@chilliwackchiefs.net

Cascades tumble in CIS rankings The University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team’s two-week reign atop the CIS rankings came to an end on Tuesday, as they fell to No. 4 in the latest edition of the national poll. The Cascades fell to 11-3 in Canada West league play following weekend road losses

to the Calgary Dinos and the Lethbridge Pronghorns. They tumbled three spots in the rankings as a result. The UFV men’s hoopsters also lost both weekend games in Alberta, and they fell out of the top-10 poll for the first time this season. They did garner 60 points in

the voting to finish 11th. They were ranked No. 7 in the nation last week. The Cascades hoopsters are at home this weekend to face the UNBC Timberwolves on Friday (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and Saturday (women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.). See ufv.ca/athletics for more.

Grade 12 Josh Ens started and posted four points and six rebounds, helping Sardis win a physical battle against the Storm. The Falcons

improved to 4-0 in league play and 16-5 overall. Sardis hosts Gleneagle in a big exhibition game at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Chilliwack equestrians score awards A Chilliwack vaulter, a Chilliwack Pony Club volunteer and a committee of volunteer show organizers were among those honored at the Horse Council BC annual awards gala in Kamloops last weekend. The gala gives the BC equestrian community an opportunity to recognize those who have contributed greatly to the success of equestrian sport in this province. With a large population of horse owners and enthusiastic volun-

teers, it is not surprising that Chilliwack often features prominently in the award winner lineup. Long-time Pony Club commissioner Janice Spenst was recognized with the Bob James Memorial Volunteer of the Year award. Besides her work with young Chilliwack equestrians, Janice is considered to be one of the backbones of the Island 22 Equestrian Park. In 2012 she ran the Canadian Pony Club National Dressage Championships, several

other major events plus Island 22’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Alisa SchmidtAnema, head coach of Freedom Acrobatics and the Cheam Vaulters, was named the BC Equestrian Athlete of the Year. Along with retaining her title as the women’s national champion, Alisa won international

medals for Canada at events in Chilliwack and California. She led her team to a gold medal at CVI Chilliwack, and committee that organized that event, led by locals Colin and Barb Schmidt, was also honored, receiving the award for the Best BC Equestrian Competition of 2012.

Jeanne was born on November 13, 1934 in Leiden, Netherlands. In 1957, Mom immigrated to Canada and married her husband Steve on October 30, 1957. They were married for 55 years and lived their life in Chilliwack, BC. Mom’s first job was cleaning houses. Once their first child was born, Mom stayed home and dedicated her time and energy to be a devoted wife and loving mother. She also helped on the farm and was known for her beautiful geraniums, fuchsia hanging baskets and her vegetable garden. Later Mom enjoyed crafts such as paper tole and card making. Mom was blessed with seven grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. Each were unique and held a special place in her heart. Every visit would end with a special “gumball� treat. As years passed, Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson’s which brought further health complications. Dad was blessed with the health and ability to dedicate all of his time and energy being Mom’s sole caregiver. For a short time Chilliwack Home Support provided assistance to Dad and Mom. February 2012 Mom moved to the Bradley Center. Dad continued to be at Mom’s side every day. His gentleness, love and devotion for Mom during her illness were an inspiration. Jeanne was predeceased by her mother, Wilhelmina Frederika “Mein� Jasperse (nee de Wekker) and her father Nico Jasperse, both of the Netherlands, her mother and father-in-law, Maria and Jan Guliker, brother-in-law John Guliker (1987), brother-in-law Frank Boesterd (2007), three nieces Jane, Leola, Doreen and one nephew Gerald. Mom is survived by her devoted husband Steve, her son John (Willy) Guliker, daughter Wilma Kliever (John) and daughter Cathy Zimmerman (Brian); grandchildren Johnny (Ruth) Guliker, Benjamin (Denise) Guliker, William Guliker, Ernie Kliever and his partner Emma, Craig Kliever, Annie Kliever, Courtney Zimmerman and her partner Gord as well as one greatgrandchild, Jorden Guliker. Jeanne is also survived by one sister Greet (Piet) Luchtigheid in the Netherlands as well as several brothers- and sistersin-law and numerous nephews and nieces. The family wishes to thank Dr. Basson, as well as all the dedicated staff working at the Bradley Center. Your support, gentleness and nurturing environment was a great comfort to all of us. A special thanks to Rev. Geuze and those who visited and supported Mom and Dad at home and during her stay at the Bradley Center. Occasion for condolences for family and friends will be held

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother and wife after a lengthy illness. Bonnie was born in Victoria to Ruby and Allan Merriman. Throughout her married life she made a home in many cities throughout Canada and overseas in Lahr, Germany. She lived the past thirty-one years in Chilliwack. Bonnie’s love of children lead her to operate a daycare. She also had a passion for helping seniors and knitting baby sweaters for the hospital. Bonnie is survived by her loving husband of fourty-six years, Carl, and her four children Lori (Andrew), Belinda (Roy), Carly (Mark), and Tom, her mother Ruby, and sisters Heather and Kathy, five grandchildren and four great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her father. We are very grateful for the many wonderful caregivers at Cascade Lodge. While her time there was short, their impact was great. A private family service of remembrance will take place in Chilliwack in February. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the British Columbia Lung Association.

Keith and Jackie Johnston are sad to announce that Bryan, Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing eye dog, died on January 3, 2013 at the age of 9 ½ years. Bryan was known to so many people and loved for his gentleness. He was known in several seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residences and the malls. He had a full life and was a great dog guide. He will be missed but he will leave behind the knowledge of his training by the Seeing Eye Incorporation. If you are so inclined, we would love a donation in his name to: The Seeing Eye Inc., Morristown, New Jersey, USA, 07963-0375
