Maternity ward expansion gets underway Vandekerkhove Family Maternity Centre at Langley Memorial Hospital is expected to open late in 2013 Brenda anderson Times Reporter

Brenda ANDERSON/Langley Times

Vanessa Vandekerkhove and her husband, Josh JansenVandoorn, returned to Langley Memorial Hospital on Friday, where their daughter, Adrianna, was born five weeks earlier, to attend the official groundbreaking celebration of the hospital’s expanded and enhanced maternity unit.

SkyTrain stabbing followed day of drinking, say police

The views from the rooftop of Langley Memorial Hospital were spectacular on a sunny Friday morning — looking out over snow capped mountains to the north and, closer in, at the construction, newly underway, on the brand new Vandekerkhove Family Maternity Centre at LMH. But it was Vanessa Vandekerkhove, a brand new mother and member of the Langley family after whom the maternity unit will be named, who stole the show as politicians, hospital staff, auxiliary members and donors gathered at the hospital on Feb. 15 to celebrate the start of the long-awaited expansion. Vandekerkhove, who spent 13 hours in labour before delivering her now fiveweek-old daughter, Adrianna, offered her thanks to the maternity nurses who made her feel safe and secure, as well as to the doctors who attended her throughout her stay. “It was such a great experience, I can’t wait to pop out a whole bunch more,” she exclaimed, earning a long burst of laughter from her audience. “I feel very privileged to have had (Adrianna) at Langley Memorial Hospital.” Vandekerkhove also told the gathering that she felt lucky there was, in fact, a bed available for her when it came time to give birth to her daughter.

A 17-year-old was arrested after stabbing her 28-year-old ex-boyfriend with a steak knife, after allegedly spending the day and evening drinking with him in Langley on Friday. The suspect, who can’t be named because of her age, had been drinking with the man during the afternoon and into the evening when the pair took a bus from Langley and headed to Sky-

The $6.5 million expansion addresses a long-term shortage of maternity beds in the hospital. The number of births each year at the LMH has risen dramatically, from 85 in 1948 — when the hospital opened — to 1,800 births in 2010. During that same period, however, only two beds were added to the ward, bringing the current total to 13. By 2020, it is expected that more than 2,300 infants will be born at LMH each year. Construction, which will see another floor added to an existing wing of the hospital, is expected to be complete late this year. At that time, four of the seven new beds — all of which will be in private rooms — will open, with the remaining three scheduled to open in 2015. “It really means we will have the capacity to serve 600 additional births per year. That’s significant,” said David Portesi, speaking on behalf of the hospital. Other planned improvements include the relocation of the maternity clinic to a space next to the maternity unit, for better continuity of care. As well, there will be a dedicated post-anesthetic recovery unit, renovated and expanded nursery, additional on-call rooms and multipurpose space.

Train in Surrey, said Transit Police. The two argued on the bus, and it continued when the teen followed her ex-boyfriend onto SkyTrain at King George station. The pair argued until the train arrived at Gateway station. As the victim stepped onto the platform, the girl produced a knife and stabbed him in the leg, said Transit Police.

A fight broke out with the victim sustaining defensive wounds to his hands and a cut to his forehead. The girl ran from the platform but was apprehended by Transit Police while on the exit stairs. She was held in custody and appeared in court on Monday. A steak knife was recovered at the scene, said Transit Police. Both are Surrey residents.

Attempted abductions may be linked: police Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Langley RCMP are now looking at the possibility that the same suspect is responsible for two different attempted abductions in Langley. The most recent attempt took place on Feb. 1 in Langley City and the prior attempt took place Oct. 31 in Fort Langley. A 12-year-old girl was grabbed by the wrist by a Caucasian man on Feb. 1, in the 5100 block of 205 Street, near the path to Al Anderson Pool. The girl managed to break free and run and hide in a nearby forest, said her dad. Once she felt safe, she ran home and told her parents who quickly called police. During the altercation, she managed to get a very good description of the suspect and with help from a police sketch artist could produce a composite drawing of the suspect.

Holly Marks. In that incident, a 12-year old-girl was standing near the cemetery around noon, when a man approached her and grabbed her wrist. She screamed, kicked him in the shin and ran back to her school (Langley Fine Arts School).  No words were exchanged between the two and in this instance, no vehicle was seen. The young victim worked with a composite artist very shortly after the attempted abduction and a sketch was distributed through the media. In the Feb. 1, attempted abduction, the girl was approached by a Caucasian man in his 30s, with brown scruffy hair, 5’9”, rcmp sketch stocky build, a scratch on the Langley RCMP believe the same man may be responsible for a pair right side of his face, wearing a of attempted abductions on Oct. 31, 2012 and Feb. 1, 2013. black zip up hoody, dark blue jeans and white Nike runners.  In addition, he was wearing a The circumstances of this occur- attempted abduction on Hallowrence and the sketch provided een day at the Fort Langley cem- silver watch adorned with Roman are remarkably similar to a prior etery, said Langley RCMP Cpl. numerals on his right arm.

He was driving a white pickup truck with a large dent on the rear passenger side near the tailgate and a dent on the driver’s side door with scratches surrounding it. The young girl told police the man was leaning against his truck which was parked at the side of the road.  As she passed by, he grabbed her wrist so she pushed him and ran. Just as in the attempted abduction at the cemetery, no words were exchanged. Police made extensive inquiries throughout the neighbourhood on Feb. 1, however no one was able to identify a suspect, said Marks. Langley Serious Crime has taken over this investigation. Police are asking the public to study both composite sketches and if you have any information that would assist with either investigation, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.  Should you need to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Fassbender running for MLA in Surrey-Fleetwood Brenda anderson Times Reporter

The mayor of the City of Langley has his sights set on a new title — MLA. Peter Fassbender officially announced on Friday morning that he plans to run on behalf of the Liberals for the provincial seat in Surrey-Fleetwood. He confirmed his intentions to The Times on Thursday. The riding is currently held by NDP MLA Jagrup Brar. Asked whether it makes sense for a politician to hold office in a community where he doesn’t reside, Fassbender said he has no problem with anyone in provincial politics doing so. “If you run for local government you should live in the community,” he said. “Provincially, I don’t think it’s as critical.” Fassbender said he has been approached to run a number of times over the years both provincially and federally, but waited until he felt the time was right to make the move. That time is now, both personally and for the Liberal party, he said. “People … have made the decision that

make sure you continue to play that role.” Fassbender has been mayor of the City of Langley since 2005, and served one term on council prior to that. He also previously served as a school trustee in Langley and is retired from the advertising agency business. A large crowd was on hand for his announcement at Fleetwood Community Centre, including MLAs Stephanie Cadieux, Rich Coleman and Mary Polak, Abbotsford South Liberal candidate Darryl Plecas, former Liberal MP (and former Surrey-Panorama candidate) Sukh Dhaliwal, former SurreyGreen Timbers MLA Brenda Locke, former Surrey Social Credit MLA Bill Reid, Langley City Councillor Teri James, Langley RCMP Insp. Amrik Virk, and numerous members of the Langley business community. Cadieux hinted at the challenges the BC Liberals have in winning the eight Surrey seats, stating that Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg has his riding “well under control,” but adding that the Liberals need to work hard to win seats north of Highway 10. — with files from Frank Bucholtz/Langley Times

Butorac jury selection delayed Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

It likely won’t be until 2014 before Langley serial killer Davey Mato Butorac will go to trial for the 2006 slaying of Aldergrove’s Margaret Redford. Jury selection for his trial was slated for Jan. 29 to Feb. 4, in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. But that has been cancelled and rescheduled for November. Butorac is already serving a life sentence

for killing two sex trade workers in the spring and summer of 2007. DNA found on his shoe and in his car linked him to those murders, which took place in Langley City and Abbotsford. Redford’s family made several pleas for the killer to come forward after her case went cold. It was after Butorac was arrested for the sex trade workers’ murders that he was first linked to Redford’s death. Redford’s body was

Milner cairn to be unveiled on Feb. 21 To mark the 125th anniversary of Milner Church, a cairn has been built at the site which the church occupied for more than 100 years. In 2006, the church was moved two blocks away from the intersection of 216 Street/64 Avenue and Glover Road, settling in as a nondenominational wedding chapel two blocks away on 64 Avenue. In 2011, Township council approved building an $80,000 commemorative cairn. It has been erected and, with a bench and landscaping, stands at the northeast corner of the intersection. The cairn will be sheltered by a maple tree that was planted to commemorate the Langley men who died in the First World War. The cairn interprets and celebrates the history of Milner by developing the original site of the church for public use. It includes a bench and landscaping. The location of the cairn takes into account improvements which will eventually be made to the intersection. Built on property donated by James Johnston, the Milner church was originally known as the Langley Prairie Methodist Church. It was formally opened in 1886 by Rev. Ebenezer Robson. Twenty-five years later, the name of the church was changed to Milner Methodist. In 1925, the congregation joined the new formed United Church of Canada, at which

Bail hearing for murder suspect Times Reporter

The man accused in the New Year’s Eve murder in Langley made another court appearance on Monday, Feb. 11 for a bail hearing in Surrey Provincial Court. Jason Brewer, 26, is charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Cole Manning, 40. Police called the pair “friends” and it’s believed Manning was a recent renter of the basement suite in Willoughby where his body was found. Brewer is also going to trial, charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm in connection to a violent crash in 2009 on Highway 10 that permanently and seriously injured two people. At the time of his arrest on New Year’s, Brewer was on probation for attacking his mother with a knife. Manning doesn’t appear to have a criminal history, in B.C. anyways. One friend of Manning, who lives in Alberta and worked with him at the Calgary Stampede several years ago, told The Times that Manning, 40, was a “genuinely nice guy” whose life began to spiral downward into drug addiction after a break up with his

long-term partner. According to Paul Gabriel, he lost track of Manning, as did many of his friends, after Manning turned to such heavy drug addiction. He was “saddened and shocked” to read about Manning’s murder. The killing isn’t gang related but

homicide investigators haven’t revealed what the motive was for the shooting, and whether it was drug related. Brewer was arrested for the murder after a short police chase that resulted in patrol cars running his vehicle off the road near the Greater Vancouver Zoo in

Aldergrove. Pilots in the area were asked by police to see if they spotted the suspect. It’s unknown where Air One was at the time, but several pilots were up in the air, helping with the search, said Langley RCMP at the time. Brewer has been in jail ever since.

Action plan welcome

Substance is needed

L

angley Township is going in the right direction by adopting its first-ever housing action plan. Hopefully this will lead to a better balance in some of the decisions made about housing and land use. As noted by counsultant Linda Allen, the Township will see many more people move into the area in the future, and many of them will be older. This is in keeping with Canada’s aging population and the long-term trend of many people from other parts of the country retiring to B.C. Yet there is little planned in the way of housing for lower-income people, including seniors, students and people with disablities. At present, less than one per cent of the housing in the Township is subsidized housing for seniors or families, as compared with nine per cent in the City. This is clearly an imbalance, and one which needs to be gradually improved. While there are limited housing subsidies available at present, the Township needs to take full advantage of whatever programs are available. Another example of an issue that needs attention is the point Allen made about a medium-income couple with an income of $92,000 in 2010. At present, this couple would qualify for a maximum $434,000 mortgage, if they had a solid down payment. This is in a very low interest rate environment. If rates go up even slightly, many people who currently have mortgages would likely not qualify. They are one step away from being over their heads. Yet the Township has done nothing to reduce the costs it builds into housing, most notably through development cost charges. While municipalities point to increasing costs associated with growth, DCCs are tacked directly onto the cost of a home — and home costs are unaffordable for a growing spectrum of the population. The attention in the report to manufactured home parks is important. While such parks are located across the Lower Mainland, Langley has a good share of them and they do provide an affordable and popular housing choice for many. The Township needs to ensure that mobile home parks remain in place, and resist any attempts at rezoning such properties. Many in Langley are located in semi-rural areas, and may be seen by developers as opportunities. But the type of housing they provide is vital. The Housing Action Plan gives some clear directions for the future.

he throne speech opening B.C.’s 39th legislature may have been short on substance, but it did make it abundantly clear that the BC Liberals see natural gas exports as the source of the province’s future prosperity. The BC Conservative party was quick off the mark to label this a “We’re gonna win a lottery” throne speech, while NDP leader Adrian Dix said it’s a sign that the Liberals have given up on other sectors of the economy, like forestry, film, high tech and tourism. Rather than convince the province with reasoned arguments that LNG exports would be safe and profitable despite the vagaries of the volatile fuel market, the throne speech instead held out tantalizing, but unsubstantiated, hints about what could be done with all that money. Reducing the provincial debt topped the list, along with improvements to social services, investment in education and infrastructure, and the biggest carrot, the elimination of provincial sales tax. The ideas outlined in the throne speech, of course, only apply if the Liberals are re-elected. An NDP government could overturn the whole concept of B.C. becoming a leading exporter of LNG to the energy hungry Asian markets. But should they? There is substance to the concept of exploiting one of the province’s biggest assets. If not now, when? While, as the NDP suggest, supporting existing economic drivers is a primary goal, expanding the province’s economic base should also be on the agenda. What we need is an intelligent approach to bringing B.C. LNG to the world market. As with the province’s five requirements for the Enbridge pipeline, we need a plan to ensure safe production and transport as well as a sound fiscal plan to ensure the province profits, both in tax revenue and job creation. What we don’t need are hints and stock platitudes intended to entice votes, but rather a substantive plan for B.C.’s future. —Kelowna Capital News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Langley Times

Year-round school not worth fuss Will mayor’s Editor: After reading G.E. MacDonnell’s letter “Many benefits to year-round schooling,” (The Times, Feb. 14), I felt compelled to point out a few things. The letter writer claims that year-round schooling “is, by far, a better format.” Based on the available research it would appear that even on the most optimistic reports, there is only a nominal improvement in academic achievement. There is plenty of research that shows there is no difference in achievement. Changing to a new calendar would not mean an increase in instructional time for students. The same curriculum would be taught, with kids finishing the year with the same knowledge base. So there would be no real gain here. The writer’s belief that families could enjoy their camping throughout the year is simply not based on reality. This might be enjoyable to some, however those of us who like to do a little swimming during our camping trips might find hopping into a near-freezing lake less than “an enjoyable experience.” The fact is that most people do their camping during the summer months and that is not going to change. Not to men-

tion the fact that most campgrounds close down in the off season. The assertion that kids need only to “dress adequately” to be involved in outdoor activities and camps in the winter months is unrealistic. Kids are simply not going to want to ride bikes, go swimming, attend camps, etc. when the weather is miserable, no matter how well-dressed they are. Just to prove the letter writer lacks a grasp of reality there is the statement “Air conditioning can be installed, as it would be a capital cost and not an operational cost.” Firstly, there would be an enormous capital cost to installing air conditioning and I’d sure like to know who would be funding that during these times of tight budgets. Secondly, there would be a substantial operational cost as anybody with an air conditioner and a hydro bill can tell you. There would also be the ongoing maintenance that would undoubtedly be needed. What’s being proposed for Langley is a change to year-round schooling, with the addition of “intersessions.” These intersessions would be one week set aside three times a year to help students in need and

would apparently take the place of summer school. This would not be available to all students and would only be of a benefit to a small number of kids. The district is telling us that the intersessions would only be available at select schools and the few eligible kids would need to find their way to those locations. If this is about improving student achievement, then let’s find a system that helps all students not just a few. Having kids in school in July is just not pragmatic. Attendance would be reduced as many parents would take their kids out for family holidays. The kids who are stuck in sweltering schools would be looking outside wishing they were there, and not focusing on school work. We live in an area where there are a limited number of good weather months and we should be free to make the most of them. It is not worth disrupting the lives of families to make change that would have little or no benefit. There is so much more to be lost than gained by making such a change. Randy VanDeKerckhove, Walnut Grove

Editor: I was very upset about the article in The Times on Feb. 14, regarding the housing action plan. Where consultant Linda Allen obtained her facts about manufactured home parks I do not know, but they are wrong. They are not a unique Langley issue, as these parks are across B.C. There are more than 26,000 residential units in B.C. alone. There are many others all over North America. What region is she talking about? Please be more specific. Locally, these parks are in Surrey, Abbotsford and Chilliwack, as well as the Township of Langley. They provide very affordable housing, and as they are generally a community in themselves, save the government untold dollars, as neighbour looks after neigh-

bour, thus saving the cost of extended care, assisted living, etc. Residents of these parks do not want rental accommodation in apartments or something similar, be it affordable or not, as they are already living in affordable accommodation, which includes land and privacy. The residents of these parks do not want to rent, where there are untold numbers of other units sharing walls. We want our four walls and our own gardens, and our own lifestyle. We need more manufactured home parks. It is very surprising that the Township of Langley does not encourage more parks to be built, as it is alternative affordable living for seniors. However, the developers and builders do not like these parks, as they cost less to set up, and they

cannot charge the high rents or have the selling price they would like. Has Allen, or any reporter, or council members driven around the parks to see what they are like? Have they walked into any of the homes they wish to destroy to see how nice they are? You have an open invitation. With the proposed community plans, it will eventually place up to about 900 seniors in the Township alone, who are in their 70s, 80s and 90s (who have lived in their homes for years) with the upsetting prospect of having to sell their homes and move in with relatives or care homes. as they cannot afford to live in the so-called affordable living that will be available, according to government thinking. Maureen Spender, Langley

Editor: I am a resident of Langley, and have been for 20 years. I would like to thank and commend Township council for having acted wisely, in the recent decision not to sell a significant portion of McLellan Forest East (the Gray Pit lands). I am grateful for the decision, as I am most concerned for the biodiversity and ecological value of the wetlands properties with regard to the importance of rare and endangered species and habitat protection within the larger regional and global context.

It is heartening that the Township has taken more than half of the forest off the market in response to the public outcry. This issue has garnered a high political profile for the Township and has a high public relations component, which will very likely influence many voters in the next election. Further to the decision, now is the time to capitalize on this momentum in order to ensure the permanent protection of both McLellan Forest and Gray Pit lands for future generations. In my opinion, the

next rational step is for council to formalize its intentions and protect the integrity of this priceless ecosystem by setting the lands aside as a park or heritage conservation area. There are a number of mechanisms through which this can be achieved. This should be immediately explored by the Township in concert with the community, to ensure that these lands will be protected in perpetuity. Ellen Klemm, Langley

Manufactured homes offer a great lifestyle

Forested area should now be preserved as a park

The

salary fall?

Editor: I was wondering if Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender has reduced his salary from taxpayers of the City, to reflect all the time he spends on TransLink, which is not a direct benefit to Langley taxpayers. I would also like to know if the mayor is going to forfeit his salary while campaigning for a provincial Liberal seat? Sandy Campbell, Langley

Letter writer just blowing smoke Editor: Re W. Martin’s letter, (The Times, Feb. 14), headlined “Legal pot boosts tourism revenue,” Martin makes many ad hoc claims in his letter regarding hordes of pot smokers heading south for an expensive weekend, just for a legal puff. That scenario is no more accurate than 19-year-old Americans coming to Langley at great expense for the weekend, just so they can have a few beers legally. J. Beauman, Langley

Pool gets shoved aside Editor: Re: “Short course pool for Aldergrove,” (The Times, Feb. 7). Is that short shrift for Aldergrove? I was under the mistaken impression that the project was all about a pool, not a hockey arena. And what is a heritage library? We already have a hockey arena and a library. Now that I think of it, we already have a small swimming pool at Philip Jackman Park. J. Churchman, Aldergrove The Times welcomes letters to the editor.

Figures released for school staff Langley school district staff pay falls outside of top 10 for highest paid Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

As assistant superintendent of schools in Langley, Suzanne Hoffman made $184,831 in the fiscal 2011/2012 year, according to the latest figures released by the Public Sector Employers’ Council (PSEC). That includes a $143,448 salary. She has since been hired as superintendent. Secretary Treasurer David Green made slightly more at $184,831, including vehicle allowance, expenses and benefits. Jennifer Canas, assistant superintendent of human resources made the third highest in the district at $165,630. But it is fired Langley superintendent Cheryle Beaumont’s payout that ranks highest earnings in B.C. at just over $444,000. That includes her salary and $301,923 in severance. Her employment ended

March 2012. But in terms of pay, Langley school district’s top staff don’t even rank in the top 10 for highest paid province-wide. A review of the provincial figures shows that the size of the district doesn’t always match the size of the manager’s salary. Although Surrey, the biggest school district in term’s of student population, paid its superintendent the most, North Vancouver — which ranks 11th largest — paid the secondhighest amount. All school districts in the province are required to provide an annual disclosure of executive compensation for those whose base salary is $125,000 or more, for the year ending June 30.

Middle school to cost $1.1 million more Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

It turns out it will cost more to build a middle school than Langley School District budgeted for. At the Jan. 29 Board of Education meeting, staff asked trustees to amend the capital project from specifying a total maximum allocation of $24 million to $25 million. “When we opened tenders for building a middle school, all of the estimates were over the budgeted amount,” said secretary-treasurer David Green. “We had to increase the budget by $1.162 million.” The Ministry of Education approved the additional allocation, said Green. The board unanimously agreed to the cost of building the new school, located on 84 Avenue, at $25,435,136. According to the district, the building of the school is on schedule. Construction is well underway.

Help put a stop to bullying. Wear the shirt. Be the difference. It started in September 2007, when two teens at a Nova Scotia high school stood up for a younger student. David Shepherd and Travis Price, both in Grade 12, heard about a Grade 9 student at their school who had been bullied and threatened for wearing a pink polo shirt on his first day of school. They decided they should do something about it and bought 50 pink shirts and tank tops to wear to school the next day. They also went online to round up support for their anti-bullying cause, which they dubbed a “sea of pink.” It worked. The next day, dozens of students were outfitted with the discount shirts, but even better, hundreds of students showed up wearing their own pink clothes, some from head to toe. The bullies were reportedly never heard from again. This year, Feb. 27 is Pink Shirt Day in B.C. and other parts of Canada, an annual anti-bullying event that started after the now-famous 2007 “sea of pink” campaign. The need for awareness and action against bullying remains as strong as ever say those involved in the pink event, including local radio station CKNW, Black Press, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver, and

London Drugs, where people can buy the official pink shirts for 2013. “Awareness of what bullying is and understanding that it hurts is important,” says Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver president and CEO Carolyn Tuckwell. “It isn’t just a rite of passage. It doesn’t have to happen. And it’s relevant to everyone, whether in school, after school or in the workplace.” According to www. bullyingcanada.ca, as many as 25 per cent of children in Grades 4 to 6 have been bullied and approximately one in 10 children have bullied others, while a 2004 study published in the Medical Journal of Pediatrics found that about one in seven Canadian children aged 11 to 16 are victims of bullying. It is important to recognize what bullying is, and that it happens in many forms – verbally, socially, physically and online (cyber bullying), says Tuckwell. “By wearing pink, people show they’re making that commitment, to not let bullying happen,” she says. Tuckwell and others emphasize that the pink shirt is secondary to raising awareness about bullying and getting people involved. B.C. is no stranger to tragedy related to bul-

lying. From Surrey’s 14-year-old Hamed Nastoh, who jumped off the Patullo Bridge and killed himself after leaving a note behind blaming the constant bullying he endured at school, to Mission’s Dawn-Marie Wesley, 14, who committed suicide by hanging herself after relentless bullying, to Port Coquitlam’s Amanda Todd, 15, who killed herself after posting a video on YouTube talking about her experiences with cyber bullying, there are countless told and untold stories that remain horrific. The provincial government has taken steps to address bullying in recent years, including a Ministry of Education resource brochure for parents in 14 languages that can be found

Proud to Support Pink Shirt Day What can children do if they are bullied?

Children are often scared and angry when they are bullied. They may not know what to do. Teach them to: • Talk back. Say, “Leave me alone,” or “You don’t scare me.” Have your child practice saying this in a calm, strong voice. • Walk away. Don't run, even if you are afraid. • Tell an adult. A parent or teacher can then take steps to stop the bullying. www.healthlinkbc.ca

The Benefits of a Heart Attack The Ultimate Wake-up Call

Last year during Heart and Stroke month we interviewed Betty Desy, an active woman in her sixties who had ignored all the signs and symptoms of an impending heart attack and had just had three stints implanted to restore the blood flow to through her clogged arteries.

After a heart attack, it’s common to have negative feelings such as fear, depression ,denial or anxiety. These feelings often last for about two to six months. They can affect your ability to exercise, interfere with your family life and your work, and have a negative impact on your recovery. “I was very frightened for awhile,” recalls Betty. “It was hard to accept that this had happened to me and I was unsure of what I could do or what I shouldn’t do in case it brought on the pain again. My specialist had encouraged me to get on with my life, exercise and do

as much as possible, so that advice combined with my fear was a bit troubling but I started back on my exercise routine.” “ I swim four times a week for ninety minutes. I had done that before the heart attack but not always four times and not always for ninety minutes. I would skip a day sometimes if I had a meeting or leave early other days if I just wasn’t into it but now I use the time seriously and put me and my body first.” The Heart and Stroke Foundation encourages recovering patients to talk about how you feel with your health care team. Talking to a

professional counselor also can help. If you’re very depressed, your doctor may recommend medicines or other treatments that can improve your quality of life. Joining a patient support group may help you adjust to life after a heart attack. You can see how other people who have the same symptoms have coped with them. Talk with your doctor about local support groups or check with an area medical center. Support from family and friends also can help relieve stress and anxiety. Let your loved ones know how you feel and what they can do to help you. “The other big changes have been

in our shopping and our eating. I take more time in the grocery store and spend more time in the kitchen. It had become very convenient to stroll through the store choosing packaged dinners and instant foods. Now I read the labels on those boxes and see the fat, cholesterol and most of all, the amount of sodium I was putting unto my body. By buying fresh vegetables and lean meat and making my own soups and meals, I can control what goes in now.”

tatistics show that most people survive their first attack and go on to live a full and productive life, if they are prepared to make some important lifestyle changes.

This week, we interviewed Betty again to see what the past year has been like. Has she followed doctor’s orders? Has she viewed the experience as a wake-up call? What significant changes has she made in her routine?

“If we go out for dinner, I am very selective and I often eat only half and take the rest home. We don’t eat out as often so by eating more healthy meals at home we are saving money as well. I have lost weight and have more energy but I still have some work to do.” “In addition to my physical health, I have been working on my emotional well being as well. I have researched my condition and read up on what the possible causes could have been and ways to prevent it from re-occurring. Education is a big key to recovery and there is a lot of information available from different agencies, on the internet and from the doctors. “ “My experience has also alerted my friends as well. Recently, we had a speaker attend one of our ladies’ church groups to talk about recognizing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and encourage

others to pay attention to the everything I ignored. I stress living a healthy lifestyle to my children and grandchildren now. I find myself often asking, ‘Why didn’t I pay attention, I knew all this and I knew there was a history of heart attacks in my family, why did I ignore that knowledge?’ “Overall, I have tried to slow my lifestyle down, pace myself, assess what really needs to be done and how that will affect my new routine. I challenge my thinking pay more attention to my body. I still find myself short of breath from time to time and I have to find out the reason for that. It could be from allergies or asthma related but I will ask my specialist when I see him in a couple of weeks.”

Having regular check-ups with your family doctor after the heart attack is important and keeping the lines of communication open with your cardiologist is vital to your recovery. If you are on medications, a periodic review of which ones are working or if the dosages have to be regulated can be assessed at these regular visits. Keeping a list of questions as they arise and discussing them with the medical professionals can alleviate many concerns and anxieties. The Last thing the doctor wants to hear is ,”I am fine.” Use your doctor visit as part of your recovery. February is Heart and Stroke month. Heart disease and strokes take the life of one Canadian every seven minutes. Since the Heart and Stroke Foundation began in 1952 the rates of death due to heart disease and stroke has declined more than 75%. There is plenty of positive information, checklists and advice on their website, www.heartandstroke.ca. “It was a big wake-up call for me,” states Betty. I have been given a new set of guidelines to follow and second chance. It’s up to me to take that seriously. I can’t control what happened but I can control what happens from now on.”

You & The Law

PRESENTS Compensation for delayed university graduation If you’re hurt in a car crash which delays your graduation from university because you can’t study full-time, you could be entitled to money compensation, i.e., damages. Take the recent case of Amy, a 17-year old Grade 12 student (name changed to protect her). Amy was driving a van in Burnaby, waiting to turn left at an intersection. She was rear-ended by another van driven by Mr. P. He (and another defendant) admitted the accident was his fault. The B.C. Supreme Court had to determine what amounts of money would fairly compensate Amy for her physical and psychological injuries. Amy suffered headaches and neck, right shoulder, mid- and lower-back pain, as well as pain in her wrists and right ankle. She also suffered some emotional difficulties, such as anxiety attacks. Some of her physical injuries got better over time, but she continued to have headaches and anxiety issues, for which she took medication. Before the accident, Amy had been an honour roll student, with grade averages of 85% and 83.7% in her first and second Grade 12 terms. In her third term, after the accident, her grade average dropped to 53.25%, and she graduated with a grade average of 78.1% for the year. Before the accident, she had planned to study engineering at UBC and take a full course load, which was a very realistic expectation given her history. Afterwards, due to the accident, she was only able to carry a part-time course load at SFU. By the time of trial, Amy had obtained 67 of the 120 credits needed to graduate. Her graduation had already been delayed by a year and 7 months, and that delay was likely to become two years. She now planned to go on to graduate school for a Master’s degree and work in public health

or health administration. The court awarded her $70,000 as compensation for two years of delayed university graduation. This was based on a yearly starting salary of $35,000 that she could expect to get in a suitable job after she graduated. This case also illustrates that car crash victims may be entitled to compensation for other types of losses. Here, for example, Amy was also awarded $50,000 for her “pain and suffering,” $23,300 for loss of (past) income, $7,500 for loss of housekeeping capacity and $13,750 for costs of future care (such as physiotherapy and psychological counselling). She was also awarded some $4,300 for special damages (essentially out-of-pocket costs because of the crash). There are other types of accident losses that may also be compensated, for example loss of future earning capacity – it depends, in each case, on what it takes to put the victim, so far as practically possible financially, in the same position as if the car crash hadn’t happened. Of course, the devil is always in the details of each particular situation, and there is often some vigorous debate between the lawyers for the victim and those of the defendant (often in reality representing an insurance company like ICBC) about what damages really are due to a particular car crash. If you’re injured in a car crash, it makes sense to seek legal advice promptly. Your lawyer can advise you and help you obtain the compensation to which you may be entitled.

Defence leads way

Top ranked Lions no match for Gators

Andrew McKay scores 20 points to lead Gators in junior final Gary aHUJa Times Sports

Gary aHUJa Times Sports

In a heavyweight battle between the top two teams in B.C., the Walnut Grove Gators landed a knockout punch in the third quarter. Playing before a standing-room only crowd at Abbotsford’s Yale Secondary on Saturday night in the finals of the Fraser Valley East high school boys basketball playoff tournament, the AAA second-ranked Gators and the top-ranked Yale Lions fought to a 41-41 stalemate at halftime. But after the break, Walnut Grove seized control, out-scoring Yale 38-11 during a stunning third quarter, closing the frame on a decisive 26-3 run, and cruised to an 86-73 win. “We tried to transition, push the ball — we were trying to wear them down,” Gators coach George Bergen said afterward. “I think our ability to run is the best in the province, to me. I think that was the difference — when we run, we are pretty good.” In the third quarter, Yale had no answer for Walnut Grove’s defence, which continuously forced missed shots and turnovers, with the Gators getting out in transition and running the ball. Jadon Cohee paced a balanced Walnut Grove attack with 18 points, and Josh Mayorga (15 points) and Sam Shin (14) also chipped in offensively for the victors. Mayorga also came up with a couple of blocked shots while Shin had a few steals. “We have been like that all season,” Bergen said about his continued, PAGE 28

Walnut Grove Gators’ Hamish McKay drives to the hoop against the defence of Brookswood’s David Dejo during the Gators’ 41-30 victory in the junior boys’ district championship game at the LEC.

When Walnut Grove Gators coach Jon Fast spoke to his players in the locker room at half-time of the championship game, he was blunt. The coach didn’t sugarcoat what he saw, which was a dismal offensive performance that saw his team scored just six points in the first quarter and 17 in the half. Not what one would expect from the top seed in the junior boys Langley district championship tournament. But on the flip side, Fast had to be impressed by the defence displayed by his Gators team, which held the Brookswood Bobcats to two points in the first quarter and just 11 in the opening 16 minutes. “In the first half, we missed around eight lay-ups and six free throws,” Fast said. “That’s 22 points left off the board in a final. I am not happy with that.” “But I also told them, that was probably the best defensive half of basketball I had seen.” Walnut Grove did find its offensive game in the second half, hitting a trio of three-pointers on their way to a 41-30 victory on Thursday night at the Langley Events Centre. “It’s only a matter of time until you find someone who heats up,” Fast said. And for the Gators, that was Andrew McKay, who finished with 20 points, including a trio of threepointers.

Brookswood was led by Michael Pratt and Doug Kwiatkoski, who both had 10 points apiece. The win was the fifth straight year Walnut Grove has won the junior boys’ district title. The Bobcats had the lead cut down to as few as five points in the fourth quarter, but the Gators had an answer reach time. Brookswood was also done in by poor foul shooting as they missed eight free throws in the final period alone. “Brookswood plays hard every time; I respect that,” Fast said. The teams were the top two seeds for the playoffs and during league play earlier this month, Walnut Grove defeated Brookswood 56-34. And in the semifinals, the Gators beat Langley Fundamental in the semifinals while Brookswood beat Langley Christian. Langley Christian won the third place game 55-49 over Langley Fundamental and all four advance to the 32-team Fraser Valley regional championships. “For me, this is my most multidimensional team that I have ever had at Walnut Grove,” Fast said, pointing to the fact his 18-player team boasts depth. “We have a bunch of guys who all have the ability to light it up.” Walnut Grove is seeded third and hosted No. 30 Samuel Roberts Technical in the opening round yesterday (Monday). Brookswood, which is No. 11 faced No. 22 Enver Creek at Heritage Woods while Langley Christian (No. 25) played at Lord Tweedsmuir (No. 8) and Langley Fundamental (No. 26) played at Semiahmoo (No. 7). The top eight teams will play in the championship round from Feb. 21 to 23 at Walnut Grove Secondary.

Stea scores 26 as Walnut Grove upsets top-seed Bobcats Gary aHUJa Times Sports

A 13-0 run to start the game and then an 8-0 run at the beginning of the second half proved to be the difference for the Walnut Grove Gators as they pulled off the upset, knocking off the top-seed Brookswood Bobcats 54-32. The teams were playing in the Langley district junior girls championship game on Thursday at the Langley Events Centre. Brookswood was gunning for its 14th straight district championship at the junior girls level. But the Gators used a tenacious defence which kept the highpowered Bobcats offence scoreless for five minutes in the first quarter and then six in the third period, to seize control and never let up. Brookswood averaged 53 points per game during the regular season when they went 7-0, which included a 45-41 win over the Gators back in December, the first day of league play. Walnut Grove was up 20-7 after

the first quarter and 34-20 at the half. They extended the lead to 20 points after three quarters and won by 18. “We got up big and were able to maintain,” said Walnut Grove coach Mark Hodgson. “Brookswood is a very good shooting team, a very well-coached team. “They were never able to get into their rhythm.” “And from the defence came the offence,” he added. “It was a big team effort.” The Gators were led by Cassie Stea’s 26 points while Emma Smithson chipped in 10 points. Brookswood was led by Julia McFarland’s nine points. In addition to winning the past 13 junior girls district championships, Brookswood had won the past 14 Grade 8 titles as well. So the Walnut Grove players have been motivated all season for a shot at the Bobcats. Hodgson, a parent who is continued, PAGE 28

Goertzen scored a game-high 20 points as the Gators won 44-32 to capture the Grade 8 boys’ district title at the LEC. locker room.” The Gators went undefeated during league play and won three of the five tournaments they entered. Both Walnut Grove and Mountain, as well as Langley Christian and H.D. Stafford — who finished third and fourth, respectively at districts — will be in the field for the 32-team Fraser Valley championships. The Gators are seeded fifth while Mountain is 12th. Both teams faced their opening round

With their offence struggling to make baskets, the Walnut Grove Gators defence stepped up and the end result was a fifth straight Langley district title. The Gators Grade 8 boys basketball team held the R.E. Mountain Eagles to three points in the second quarter, turning a five-point lead into a 12-point advantage, which they would not relinquish. The final score was 44-32 for Walnut Grove. “I think both teams struggled making baskets,” said Walnut Grove co-head coach Terry Stead. “But the boys found a way to win.” “Mountain played hard and it was two good teams going at it,” Stead added. “We just out-lasted them.” A big key to the victory was the Gators size advantage inside. Andrew Goertzen led the way with 20 points, including all six points for his team in the third quarter and then Walnut Grove’s first eight in the fourth quarter. For the Eagles, Andrew Song led the way with nine points. “Defensively, I think we played well,” Stead said about his team which gave up just a dozen points in the opening half. “We were really happy with our defence going into the

Lightning strikes for district title LCS defeats H.D. Stafford in Grade 8 girls’ final Gary ahuja Times Sports

The Langley Christian Lightning continued their dominant season, capturing the Grade 8 girls Langley district basketball championship. The Lightning scored the game’s first six points and never looked back, defeating the H.D. Stafford Skyhawks 37-23 on Thursday afternoon at the Langley Events Centre. The victory marked the first time in 15 years that the Brookswood Bobcats were not keeping the championship trophy after Stafford knocked them off in the semifinals. Brookswood did rebound to take third place over Walnut Grove. In the championship final, Katelyn Mallette scored a game-high 11 points to pace the Lightning. And the key to the win was teamwork, said coach Cynthia Wergeland. “Our teamwork was important today because we had two injured starters,” she said. The pair still played but were not 100 per cent. “The rest of the team stepped up and picked up the slack.” After the Lightning jumped ahead 6-0, the Skyhawks cut the lead to three points after one quarter. They

Langley Christian has lost just once all year, back at a tournament in December when they lost by two points to Abbotsford’s W.A. Fraser. In league play, the Lightning were 8-0 and out-scored the opposition an average of 45-11. Three times, the opponent did not even reach double digits in points and the 23 points surrendered in the district final to Stafford, were the most against a Langley school in league play or the playoffs.

played earlier in the season, the Lightning won 40-20. Wergeland said some of the credit for the team’s success has to come from them playing together at the club level, with the Langley Hoopsters, under former Trinity Western women’s coach Danielle Gardner. “The key to success for us will be intensity and continuing to play as a team,” Wergeland said. Langley Christian, Stafford, Walnut Grove and Brookswood will all play at the 32-team Fraser Valley championships. Langley Christian is seeded fourth and will host Agassiz today

coaching at the high school level for the first time, said the players had this game circled on their calendar all season. “They waited all year for this game, the district championships,” he said. “That has been our focus right from the start.” Overall, it has been a strong season for the Gators, with three tournament titles and just three defeats along the way: the league game to Brookswood, in the semifinals of one tournament and the finals of another. Walnut Grove, Brookswood, Langley Christian and R.E.

Mountain will all take part in the 32-team Fraser Valley championships, which tip off today (Tuesday). Langley Christian defeated Mountain 32-30 in the third-place game at districts. The Gators are seeded third and will play No. 30 Guildford Park at WGSS. No. 9 Brookswood faces No. 24 MEI at Heritage Woods while Langley Christian (No. 23) and R.E. Mountain (No. 26) face No. 10 Yale and No. 7 Earl Marriott. Both games are at Earl Marriott Secondary. The final eight teams will play in the championship round, which runs Feb. 21 to 23 at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.

team having multiple scoring options. “We rarely had scorers in the 30s. It is a balanced team effort.” The loss was just the second against Canadian competition for the Lions. “This (loss) is something that was needed,” said Yale coach Al Friesen, noting that Walnut Grove trumped his team in stats that are indicative of hustle — offensive rebounds, recovering loose balls, fast-break layups.

“There’s no team that’s that much better than anybody in this province, at the top . . . On a given day, it’s partly who’s hot, but who mentally comes the most ready to play and most ready to compete is going to win.” Despite beating the province’s top-ranked team, the Gators begin play at the Fraser Valley championships seeded second in the 32-team draw. Yale is third while the White Rock Christian Warriors, who beat the Gators twice this season, earned the top seed.
