Body that of missing woman?

Budget balancing act A5

LIVE TO GIVE AT YALE

Friends believe they know identity of victim

A15 Students take on another fundraising all-nighter to help build schools in Sierra Leone

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Friends of an Abbotsford woman who has been missing for over a week believe she may be the person whose body was found on Riverside Road on Monday morning. Abbotsford Police were still confirming the woman’s identity as of press deadline on Wednesday, as well as the cause of death. But a man who spoke with The News said he has been told that his friend, whose name will not be published until official police confirmation, is the possible victim. The man lives in and owns an east Abbotsford home in which he has rented a room to the woman for the last six years. He said his friend suffers from mental-health issues and she left the home on Sunday, Feb. 10 after an argument with her boyfriend, who also lives in the residence. She has not been heard from or seen since, he said. Friends reported her absence to police, and were in the process of putting together missing person posters when they heard about the Riverside Road incident. The man said the woman has a friend who lives on Riverside Road, and it was quite likely she could have been on her way to see him. On Monday at about 10:15 a.m., a passerby found the body of a woman at the side of Riverside, about halfway between King and Vye roads. Police have ruled out natural causes, but an autopsy was still underway on Wednesday to determine whether the death was the result of a homicide, a hit-and-run, or some other factor.

Tackling gang violence

Patient Testimonial

Ten years ago, I decided to have a dental implant rather than a bridge. Bridges can be hard to clean and can break down over time. I made an appointment with Dr. Lui and found the implant procedure virtually painless. My dental implant was problem free so, five years later, I had another implant placed by Dr. Lui. I have no discomfort, I can eat anything and the implants are easy to brush - just like normal teeth! I have complete confidence in Dr. Lui. His rates are fair and I know he keeps up-to-date with the latest technology and equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Lui to anyone considering having tooth replacement with a dental implant.

Police chief to discuss issue at peace forum

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Bob Rich began working as an officer in an era when it was believed that police could not effect change. Crime was viewed as an outcome of socio-economic issues such as family dysfunction, illiteracy and substance abuse, and police merely reacted to those situations. But Rich related to the philosophies of former New York police commissioner William Bratton, and others, who believed crime, in many cases, could be prevented. Rich, the chief of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) since 2008, credits his staff with embracing strategies that are often viewed as unconventional. There is, perhaps, no more evidence of their success than in the community’s gang-related crimes, which reached a peak in 2008-09, but have since dropped dramatically. Rich will speak about this issue during a presentation on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Rotary Peace Forum in Richmond. His topic is “Combating Gang

The formation of a gang suppression unit in the Abbotsford Police Department was one measure taken to combat gang violence in the community.

Violence.” Gang-related murders and violence saw the city dubbed “the murder capital of Canada” as rival groups – such as the Red Scorpions and the UN Gang – battled for control of the drug trade. By 2011, the rate of violent crime in Abbotsford had dropped 26 per cent and the city had shed its “murder capital” title.

Rich said the APD tackled the gang problem with a comprehensive plan that included forming the gang suppression unit, releasing the names of high-profile groups such as the Bacons and the Duhres, and installing video surveillance in neighborhoods occupied by gangsters. “One aspect of this is you lift up the rock and say, ‘Look

what’s here, people.’ Criminals do not like the light,” Rich said. A public awareness campaign included a series of posters, videos and presentations aimed at steering kids away from the gang lifestyle. Some of the initiatives incurred criticism – for example, a Christmas card sent to criminals in December that de-

picted Rich dressed as Santa Claus in tactical gear and toting an assault rifle. The idea was to encourage the recipients to consider a different lifestyle, with a phone number provided if they wanted support. Rich acknowledges that such strategies can be risky, but they have to be edgy to have an impact. “If you’re going to do something like that, you’re not going to send them (criminals) a picture of a Christmas tree.” Rich acknowledges that although the gang problem has dissipated, it’s still an issue. “We’re not out of the woods yet. There could still be a murder or serious violence out there.” He said the names and types of gangs currently operating in the city aren’t as clear as they once were. There is much more business being conducted between groups, and it’s more difficult to pinpoint who’s working with whom. But one thing is clear. “Our goal is to always be chipping away and making our community safer.”

Speeding driver nabbed yet again

Bite me.

Two cars impounded in 17 months Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A man who was among 13 drivers who had their high-end vehicles impounded for excessive speeding in 2011 experienced the same situation in Abbotsford on Friday night. Const. Ian MacDonald said two Abbotsford Police officers were driving along South Parallel Road at about 10:30 p.m. when they spotted a driver in an Audi S6 going speeds of between 160 and 170 km/h along Highway 1. The posted speed limit on the freeway is 100 km/h. The driver was pulled over near Cole Road, and it was discovered that he only had his driver’s licence returned two days before. He had lost his licence following an incident on Aug. 31, 2011 along Highway 99 near the Massey Tunnel in Richmond

when he was also driving an Audi, but a different model. At that time, police received multiple reports of several vehicles travelling along the freeway at speeds of up to 200 km/h. The drivers exited into Surrey, where RCMP officers were able to stop six of the 13 cars – a Ferrari, a Maserati, a Lamborghini, a Mercedes, an Audi and a Nissan R Series. White Rock RCMP stopped the other seven vehicles along Johnston Road. All of the vehicles were impounded and each driver was charged with driving without reasonable consideration. MacDonald said following Friday’s incident in Abbotsford, the driver’s car was impounded, and the superintendent of motor vehicles will determine what additional penalties will result.

Do you approve of the Liberal government’s new budget?

I wouldn’t be surprised if the truth be told that it’s all about staffing funds, scheduling and lack of planning that has become our emergency. It’s hard to convince me that there isn’t flexibility to accommodate the need to address one age group as the demographic’s needs change. Rex Hiebert

to inspecting and auditing medical marijuana producers to make sure they comply with regulations. The federal Ministry of Health recently announced that changes will be made to the way Canadians access marijuana for medical purposes. The federal government says it plans to implement the system by March 31, 2013, at which point all current licenses to possess or produce pot would expire. Isn’t this all just another good reason to scrap the present laws surrounding pot use, and simply put production, sale and taxation under government regulation? Washington state to the south voted last fall to do just that. It delivers a major hit to crime related to illegal production and sale. It removes criminal charges for minor possession, and all the impact that has on enforcement and judicial system resources. More regulation on medical marijuana grows may be a step in the right direction. There’s a much bigger one to be taken.

Two recent issues appearing in your paper – ‘Offensive events” policy to be reconsidered,’ (Feb. 4) and Andrew Holota’s editorial “Cannon bylaw support” (Feb. 6), have interesting parallels. Both lingerie football and the use of berry cannons could be considered offensive. And both topics have required council’s input as of late. The one big difference? If I don’t like lingerie football, I don’t have to go. If I don’t like the intrusive sounds of blueberry cannons interrupting my life, I cannot escape it – even in the comfort of my own home. Certainly food for thought.

When the P3 water referendum was brought forward, we were not given fulsome information from city planners or council to justify the need and cost to taxpayers. The decision, in my opinion, was a waste of taxpayer’s money. Now we are faced with the YMCA, with information which defies common sense and, in fact, is supported by

An open letter to city manager George Murray: Welcome to Abbotsford, Mr. Murray. Now let us cut to the chase from a brief honeymoon. Foremost, are you an advocate of the P3 contract? You mentioned in your interview the “challenge” of providing enough information to the public – that we should understand why our city makes the decisions they do. I like that, as it gets right to the crux of the issue we have with our city managers and council, all in the past, I trust. Vote Yes for Plan A is an example of one-

MY LIFE

is about gratitude

MY MEDICINE is my hope My name is Maureen Smith I’m 53 years old I’m from Ottawa and I live with a rare hormonal disorder

I was born with an extremely rare disorder which means I have zero growth hormone. As a child, I received medication to keep my condition in check but there was no treatment for adults with this disorder, so for 20 years my health deteriorated drastically. By sheer willpower and a lot of luck, I found a clinical trial for a new drug – my life was changed. I can’t describe the exhilaration of taking a medicine that literally turns your despair into hope. I’m healthier today than I was at 25, and I am so grateful for the medicine that keeps me alive. www.canadapharma.org/hope

california roll & Dynamite roll BY DR. ANDREA PECHEY

This is a common training exercise that dog owners often have questions about. Here we will go through some reasons why you might consider kennel training your dog and a few things to think about. The main advantage of kennel training your dog is safety. A kennel will provide your dog with a secure place to relax, sleep or retreat when they need some alone time. It also keeps them safe by preventing them from getting into things when you are not home and they are unsupervised. Kennel training also assists with housebreaking. Dogs do not eliminate where they sleep – who would do that? Yuck! So by creating a little “bedroom” for your dog in their crate, you are much more likely to be successful in your potty training goals. From a medical perspective, if your dog ever needs to be hospitalized for a procedure, medical condition or

emergency they will be much more comfortable in their kennel if they are already used to being crated. This also holds true for boarding your pooch while you are on vacation or when you have them travel in the car or airplane to JOIN you on vacation. Some things to consider: adult dogs should be let out to relieve themselves every 5-7hours and puppies every 3 hours. Lead them straight to where they need to go to prevent inappropriate elimination and give lots of praise for “doing the right thing”. Before you crate your dog, let them have a good run around the yard to burn off excess energy and make sure they go potty. Finally, do not let them out when they are barking or whining – this will only teach them that these behaviors will result in being let out. More questions? Consult your veterinarian or dog trainer!

We are the Kin’s Green Fighters! 13 contestants take the challenge to get fit and healthy—follow along and watch as they achieve their goals Beginning March 1st follow Nicole’s 13 week journey to a healthier lifestyle. Nicole will be up against 12 other Greater Vancouver contestants in the hopes of becoming the ultimate Green Fighter and winning the grand prize of a cruise for two to LA.

Nicole takes the challenge for Abbotsford… Reason for Applying: This challenge will help motivate me to maintain two of my New Year’s resolutions. 1. Exercising more regularly and 2. Being more involved in my community through volunteering regularly. My dad lost his arm to cancer during his second cancer battle at the age of 22. I turned 22 just a few days ago on Feb. 12th, and I want to dedicate this challenge to my dad’s battle and recovery. We have volunteered with the Canadian Cancer Society together, selling daffodils and doing the Relay for Life. He was the driver co-ordinator in Mission for several years. All about Nicole Bradley

Pilots wary of Outlaws Local rivals clash in playoffs

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Heading into the playoffs, there’s no hotter team in the Pacific Junior Hockey League than the Abbotsford Pilots. The local junior B hockey club entered the post-season on a five-game win streak, including a dominant 12-0 victory over the Port Moody Panthers in their regular season finale last Friday at MSA Arena. But head coach Jim Cowden wasn’t taking anything for granted heading into the Pilots’ first-round matchup with their local rival, the Mission City Outlaws. “It’s a new season – we all start from scratch,” Cowden noted. “Anything can happen. It can change in a hurry if we don’t play our systems and put on our work boots.” On paper, the Pilots are heavily favoured in this series. The Outlaws, who finished fourth in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference at 9-31-4, were second-last in the PJHL in goals scored (110) and goals against (221). The Pilots (31-10-2), meanwhile, were tops in the league in both categories (199 goals for, 91 against), while winning the Brittain Conference handily and finishing just two points back of

the Richmond Sockeyes for first overall in the PJHL. They also happen to be the defending provincial and Western Canadian champs. But Cowden pointed out the Outlaws finished the regular season strong – they claimed five of a possible six points in their last three games, highlighted by a 3-2 overtime win vs. the Delta Ice Hawks, one of the league’s top teams. “They’ll give us a good run if we don’t come prepared,” Cowden predicted. “They work hard, they’ve got a lot of speed and they have good goaltending. We’ll have to work.” The Pilots and Outlaws opened the series on Tuesday at MSA Arena, but that result was unavailable at press time. Visit abbynews.com for a recap. Game 2 goes tonight (Thursday) at Mission Leisure Centre (7:15 p.m.). The balance of the series schedule is as follows: • Game 3 – Friday, Feb. 22, 7:30 p.m., MSA Arena • Game 4 – Sunday, Feb. 24, 6:15 p.m., Mission Leisure Centre • *Game 5 – Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7 p.m., MSA Arena • *Game 6 – Thursday, Feb. 28, 7:15 p.m., Mission Leisure Centre • *Game 7 –  Friday, March 1, 7:30 p.m., MSA Arena *if necessary

Wrestling community grapples with Olympic exclusion

2020 Summer Games. “It shocked everybody in the wrestling world,” said Jim Mitchell, the longtime wrestling coach at W.J. Mouat Secondary and an Olympic wrestling official at the 2008 Beijing Games. The ensuing uproar has prompted the IOC to give wrestling a second chance – in September, it will compete with seven other sports for one spot on the 2020 slate. But that’s hardly a guarantee. Mitchell pointed out that when a sport is dropped from the Olympics, it doesn’t get the same level of government funding. Furthermore, it af-

The Upper Fraser Valley is B.C.’s most competitive high school wrestling zone, and as such, it’s not hard to imagine there were future Olympians on the mats at last Saturday’s regional tourney at Rick Hansen Secondary. Of course, that’s assuming wrestling itself has a future in the Olympics. Coaches and athletes alike were rocked by last week’s news that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had voted to eliminate wrestling, an original Olympic sport, from the menu for the

fects the sport at the grassroots level. “If you’re not in the Olympics, it’s hard to get those role models – the Carol Huynhs, the Daniel Igalis,” Mitchell said, alluding to past Canadian gold medallists. “If I’m a kid, do I want to go into soccer, which is an Olympic sport where we have (Abbotsford native) Sophie Schmidt? Or do you want to go into wrestling, where there’s no Olympic heroes?” In the short term, wrestling is thriving in Abbotsford. At the Upper Valley meet, Mitchell’s Hawks won the boys team title, their 140 points nearly doubling up on Guildford Park of Surrey (74). Mouat’s gold medallists were Navrose Brar (38 kg), Davinder Gill (51 kg), Amrit Benning (60 kg), Khang Nguyen (63 kg) and Nishan Randhawa (78 kg). Other gold medal winners included Hansen’s Jobanjit Phulka (84 kg) and Justin Gill (70 kg), MEI’s Dave Sharma (54 kg) and Rajan Gill (90 kg), Navdeep Toor of Reimer Middle (41 kg), and Abby Traditional’s Tejpaul Kullar (45 kg). Mouat took third on the girls side, led by silver medallists Ashleigh Bull (40 kg), Gagan Malay (47 kg), Pravi Dhaliwal (60 kg) and Tamanna Bains (64 kg). Sarah McPherson of Abby Traditional also won silver at 54 kg.

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information specic to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update specic to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofce directly at 604-309-6068.

Cascades stoked to host Huskies UFV coach has a lot of respect for first-round playoff foe

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

As University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball coach Al Tuchscherer toiled to build his program into a top contender in the Canada West conference, he used the Saskatchewan Huskies as a template. It seems fitting, then, that as the Cascades embark on the playoffs following a breakthrough regular season, the first team in their path would be the Huskies. In many ways, the programs are mirror images, aside from the Huskies’ much longer tenure in Canada West. Both teams shop local in

terms of recruiting – 10 of 12 players on the Huskies’ roster are from Saskatchewan, while the entire UFV squad hails from with 60 kilometres of campus. “Even when our group of girls were in their first and second years, we alTUCHSCHERER ways pointed to Saskatchewan –  look how they do it,” Tuchscherer said. “They’re always right there (contending). They recruit primarily Saskatchewan kids, they have a lot of pride in their pro-

gram, and they’re well-coached. There’s just a lot of things I like about their program.” Tuchscherer will put his admiration on the back burner this week as the Cascades (184) host the Huskies (13-9) in a best-of-three series at UFV’s Envision Athletic Centre.

February is

Heart Month

“I am 33 years old now and am happily living my life out on Vancouver Island and I owe it all to you and your company. You saved my life and I can never re-pay what you have done for me.” Dear Strauss Herb Company,

I had cancer when I was 10 years old and went through 2 years of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. One of the drugs they used was called adriamycin. The adriamycin is very hard on your heart and ten years later I went from a normal 20 years old young man to not being able to physically lift myself off the couch. Just existing was like running a marathon and I was dying. After 4 months in the hospital and a feew tr rip ps tto the critical care unit for crashing I had enough knowledge to at least keep myself stable. One day the doctor few trips ccame cam ca ame in and told me that they had found a node on my lung and did a biopsy and found another cancerous growth. I w s now wa n diagnosed with end stage congestive heart failure and lung cancer. Because of the lung cancer I was taken no was offf of o the heart transplant list and because of the heart condition I wouldn’t survive another round of chemotherapy. off Iw was sent home with a prescription for my heart meds and a six month timeline as to how long I was going to liv li v They sent me home so I would be in familiar surroundings when my nal breath was taken. live. B Being as that I was only 20 years old, I had no intention of dying. One day I wandered into a health food store in my hometown and explained my story to the woman working. After a few tears and a heartfelt hug from her she showed me Strauss Heartdrops. I began as directed and continued to increase my dosage until I was taking 2.5ml/3x a day. After 6 months I began to be able to go for walks without seeing stars. The feeling like someone was standing on my chest started to subside. I remember the rst time I fell asleep on my back - it was a small miracle because before it had felt like I was drowning. I reported to my cardiologist appointments as ordered and was stunned as I watched my improvement not only on a personal level but in a controlled environment using the best in modern equipment. I am 33 years old now and am happily living my life out on Vancouver Island and I owe it all to you and your company. You saved my life and I can never re-pay what you have done for me. There is so much more to this story but I just wanted to give duct you the gist of it. ry Strauss Pro Thank you, thank you, thank you. Health Can Canada ada ad da Appr A Approved ppro oved d

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

When Sam Freeman shoots the basketball, you half expect an angel choir to start singing backup, his stroke that pure. “It’s just effortless,” analyzed Adam Friesen, Freeman’s coach with the University of the Fraser Valley men’s team. “He’s got one of the best wrists I’ve ever seen. He can shoot with a free throw type of effort and hit NBA threes with ease, with great arc and perfect rotation . . .” Then Friesen stopped midsentence, chuckled, and allowed himself to simply be a fan. “I don’t know technically why it happens that way, and I don’t care,” he said with a grin. “It happens, and it really is great to watch.” When Freeman closed the book on his fifth and final regular season in Cascades colours last week, he found himself in second place on the Canada West conference all-time list in terms of three-pointers made. He’s knocked down a remarkable 252 treys –  only exUniversity of Regina gunner Jeff Lukomski (308) has made more, and he took 218 more attempts to get there. Freeman, a 6’3” shooting guard out of Coquitlam’s Dr. Charles Best Secondary, has been an impact player with the Cascades ever since his freshman campaign of 200809, when he was named the Canada West rookie of the year. But this season has been a breakout of sorts. With Joel Friesen, formerly UFV’s main man on the perimeter, transferring to the University of Alberta last

Cascades guard Sam Freeman wrapped up the regular season in second on the all-time Canada West list for three-pointers made.

summer, Freeman has had more opportunity to showcase his all-around game, handling the ball and driving to the hoop. He’s made the most of it – his careerhigh 21.6 points per game were good for second in Canada West. Freeman is also 15th on the conference’s all-time scoring list with 1,611 points, and at his senior night last Friday, Friesen called him one of the best players, if not the best, in program history. “That’s a huge thing,” Freeman marveled, “to put on this jersey and have people consider you the best.

Final

I couldn’t be happier with how my career’s turned out. It’s been a fairy tale for me, and it’s not over yet.” The stories of Freeman’s shooting prowess will surely fade into legend at UFV. His most memorable shot was the game-winning trey he hit against Trinity Western in the 2011 playoffs, turning a late two-point deficit into a one-point win. Then there was last Friday’s game, also vs. TWU. The Cascades found out in the morning that they’d been stripped of two wins due to the use of an ineligible player, putting their playoff status in limbo. But

in a pre-game conversation with his father and Coach Friesen, Freeman put their minds at ease. “He put his arm around his dad, looked at me and said, ‘There’s nothing to worry about. I’ll be hitting my shots,’” Friesen related. Then Freeman went out and poured in 32 points, going 5-for-6 from beyond the arc as UFV re-clinched their playoff berth. The day-to-day excellence might be what impresses Friesen the most. He’ll give the team a shooting drill during practice where each player has to hit X number of threes or free throws, and Freeman will be finished before anyone else is half done. “His bad is better than most people’s great,” Friesen enthused. “And his great is just awesome to watch.” After graduation, Freeman plans to pursue a pro basketball career in Europe. But in the short term, he’s focused on extending his Cascades career with a deep playoff run. The UFV men head to Saskatoon this weekend for a best-of-three series against the Saskatchewan Huskies, the top seed in the Prairie Division and the No. 7-ranked team in the nation. “We’re trying to write a Cinderella story here,” Freeman said. “With all the adversity we’ve gone through with this team, it’s been a roller-coaster. But we’re such a strong group. “For playoffs, we just need to focus on sticking together – playing strong, taking each possession seriously, not taking anything for granted. Just playing our hearts out.”

Between the vines with Kathleen Rake

Dog wash leads to new wine experience We have a Standard Poodle puppy name Leilani and she led us to a new wine store in Abbotsford. Well, not directly. We headed for Sumas Mountain Village in Abbotsford to check out the Bosley’s Pet Food Plus dog-washing stations we’d heard about from the breeder and discovered Sumas Mountain Wines, a B.C. VQA wine store, just a couple of doors away.

NAME> Collins AGE> 31 ice STUDYING> Criminal Just

VQA – Vintners Quality Alliance – is the designation used in B.C. to indicate that what you read on the label is what you get in the bottle. In other words, BC VQA assures you the grape is what it claims and the B.C. region is, too. You are guaranteed wines that are B.C. grown and produced and meet a certain standard. However, it isn’t a guarantee you’ll like the wine.

Q&A What do you like best about UFV? People really care. One-on-one time with instructors is great.

What’s your favourite class so far? Crim 230: Criminal Law.

And, it’s important to note there are several B.C. wineries that produce

excellent all-B.C. wines but choose to not participate in the BC VQA program. We took part in Sumas Mountain Wines’ complimentary Saturdayafternoon wine tasting and sipped four from Wild Goose Vineyards in the Okanagan: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. Of the four, I preferred the whites, especially the Riesling ($17/12% ABV). So I took home two bottles. Riesling is one of the most food-friendly and versatile wines. This Wild Goose example was juicy, refreshing and packed with the aromas and flavours of stone fruit, apples and citrus. In addition, I found a pleasing minerality on the nose and the proverbial Riesling petrol, which was a little more pronounced than I expected in such a young wine. Serve this wine with almost anything, from spicy Asian fare to eggs Benedict, and enjoy.

Local Family Company Gives Back by Michelle Watrin

Fifty years ago, Neil Klassen saw a need and filled it. He began hauling sawdust out of local mills and supplying the local farmers with bedding for animals. Without realizing it, he was building the foundation for what would grow into a very successful Abbotsford family business. Valley Pulp and Sawdust Carriers Ltd. is now a thriving company. In addition to various agricultural supplies, the company provides landscaping and hauling solutions. It has gone from Mr. Klassen’s one truck to a fleet of 20, with over 40 employees, 14 of whom are family members. Mr. Klassen, now 84, is thrilled to see the third generation of Klassens take over as owners. This generation is determined keep their grandfather’s values front and centre as they advance into the future. “Our grandpa taught us to always give back to our community,” third generation owner Erin Klassen-Parkes explains. “So we are following an important heritage that was instilled in us growing up by becoming sponsors

of Envision Financial’s Run for Water. We are very happy with the great sense of community this event has enamored Abbotsford with.” Over the last few years, the Envision Financial Run for Water has grown very special to the company and the Klassen family. In the 2012 event, 37 members from their family participated. “We would like to challenge other families or family businesses to beat our enrollment at Run for Water 2013 on May 26, and to consider being a sponsor or donating charitably to HOPE international,” Klassen-Parkes continues. “It is a great community event that doesn’t exclude anyone, great for the whole family and has a purpose of getting clean water to those who don’t have access to it. We love that they have a curriculum for the schools to get involved in. There really isn’t a reason not to sponsor Run for Water.” If you would like to take the challenge or learn more about Run for Water, please visit the website at www.runforwater.ca.

Unsung ff Massey, by Chef Je t 62 restauran

Canadian winters are tough on vegetable lovers. The produce aisles are still stacked with decent-looking food but the flavours and textures just aren’t right. There are several vegetables that cellar well, are still local, and plentiful this time of year. The key is always choosing a good quality item that is appropriate for the time of year, and to handle it simply. Try roasting vegetables instead of boiling to maximize the natural sweetness. Jerusalem artichokes Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes) are so prolific gardeners are

Heroes hesitant to plant them. The plants grow into 6’ tall sunflower-like plants with large tubers under the ground. The roots (that you eat) have a beautiful nuttiness and buttery richness. You can leave the root in the ground for the winter and dig it up as you require or wash it well and store in the fridge. Make sure to use a sealed plastic bag and squeeze out all excess air or the chokes will soften and brown.

CAULIPOWER!

with cream and horseradish, sea salt and Dijon mustard is a simple way to make a delicious accompaniment for baconwrapped pork dishes. Onions

Cauliflower

Onions are extremely versatile in the kitchen. Bursting with sweetness once caramelized. If you are cellaring your onions, be sure not to store them in the same place as your potatoes. Onions emit a gas that causes potatoes to rot quickly.

Another vegetable that can be sourced locally, is inexpensive and has great nutritional benefits is cauliflower. Baking a large head broken into florets in the oven until the natural sugars brown on the outside, then pureeing

Give your vegetables the same amount of thought and care as you do for the rest of your meal. Even this time of year, in this climate, you can find wonderful, local options to satisfy even the most refined palate.

BEET THIS!

Beets should last in the fridge or cellar until very early spring. Even if their skins are loose and a little sad looking, if boiled before peeling, their flavour is as nice as it was in the summer. Our recipe for cooking beets is simple: • 3 lbs local beets in a large pot covered with an inch more of cold water • 1 cup of sugar • ¼ cup of salt • 1 tsp each of: coriander, fennel, bay leaves black peppercorns, star anise, mustard seeds and a cinnamon stick • ½ cup red wine vinegar Combine all together and bring to a slow boil. Cook until beets are cooked through, but not mushy. Remove from the heat and allow the beets to cool, peel, chop as desired. Strain and pour the cooking liquid over the beets to lengthen the storage time.

orange crush

A splash of tangerine, anyone? How about a touch of apricot? Shades of orange are bringing a bright, fun spirit to the spring fashion scene. Orange can add zing to any outfit, but it's not a colour you want to get wrong. You know what they say about too much of a good thing. Orange looks great when paired in small amounts with neutral tones such as navy, olive and champagne. A classy cardigan or a top that includes a few orange stripes does just the trick. Not everyone can wear orange close to their face, though, so considering investing in a patent tote bag or a cute pair of ballet flats to add a pop of colour to any outfit. Orange you glad spring is just around the corner?

over e k a m total ge challen

by Karrie Murray, Aldila Boutique, Sevenoaks Shopping Centre Four weeks have passed since the January 7 start date of the Total Makeover Challenge, sponsored by The Abbotsford News and Go Fusion Fitness, and what amazing results the ladies are seeing! More far reaching than just the physical changes are the mental changes; the ladies are experiencing a real sense of joy and positivity, a feeling of accomplishment and personal growth. One such contestant is Kimberley Thompson. Her motivation came from a need to balance her mentally demanding job as the coordinator of Bereavement Services at Mission Hospice. It started with a commitment to re-structuring her life to include gym time at least four days a week. What keeps Kimberley on track are the results, not just the decreasing numbers, but the new shape that her body is taking and the increase is her personal happiness.

Another contestant enjoying the challenge is Tina Richardson. Tina wanted to boost her energy in order to balance her busy schedule and carve out some sorely missed “me” time. She is excited about weigh-ins and stresses that this is due wholly to the enthusiasm and support from the Go Fusion Fitness staff. Laura Carver was a 2012 contestant who realized she wasn’t where she wanted to be yet, physically and mentally. She finds the group support and accountability of the Total Makeover Challenge ideal for achieving results. Already, she has lost over ten inches! Laura has two daughters that are her motivation. She wants to be seen as a woman who is secure in her strong body and mind. We will continue to follow these amazing ladies on their journey of self-discovery. Stay tuned for further updates and celebrations of success.

• A laundry area also can be much more than just a place to wash and fold clothes. Many people like to turn this spot into a multipurpose zone. A large countertop normally used to fold clothes can also double as a gift-wrapping station. Think about merging a laundry room with a craft room. • Raising hamper bins off of the floor to be suspended from a rod above the washer frees up valuable floor space.

Although a laundry room is often an afterthought, taking time to organize and plan the space can make it both functional and inviting.

Homeowners and renters need not feel they have to hide laundry rooms like they did in the past. Having the laundry nearby the family action -- and paying attention to laundry room design -- can make the work of keeping clothes tidy that much easier.

When purchasing a home, buyers often look at the kitchen space and how many bedrooms there are, while largely ignoring other rooms, including the laundry room. Oftentimes, the washer and dryer are relegated to a dark corner of the basement or garage, and homeowners simply accept their laundry lot.

island Paradise? Although there are many benefits to an island in the kitchen, there are also some disadvantages to kitchen islands. Homeowners planning a kitchen remodel are no doubt considering whether to include a kitchen island in the new design. When the space allows, an island can be a fine way to enhance the look of a kitchen and impart an upscale appeal. Although there are many benefits to an island in the kitchen, there are also some disadvantages to kitchen islands. Weighing all the options can help homeowners design a kitchen layout that is functional, affordable and practical for the space they have.

Pros Many times islands are built with cabinetry that matches the rest of the kitchen design, and those cabinets provide storage space for pots, pans AREA RUGS - CARPET – SHEET VINYL – VINYL PLANK – HARDWOOD – LAMINATE – CERAMIC TILE – STONE – WINDOW COVERINGS – AREA RUGS - CARPET – SHEET VINYL – VINYL PLANK – HARDWOOD – LAMINATE – CERAMIC TILE – STONE – WINDOW COVERINGS

and other kitchen tools. Islands may double the storage space available in the kitchen. Kitchen counter space can be easily gobbled up by toaster ovens, microwaves, coffee makers, and various other countertop appliances. These appliances can take up valuable real estate that’s sorely missed when preparing meals. An island can be used solely for cooking and preparation, and some homeowners have incorporated cutting boards and a prep sink into the design of the island. Islands also can be customized according to a homeowner’s needs. Instead of simply having cabinetry beneath the counter, some opt to have a wine cooler or even a bookshelf for keeping cookbooks within reach. An

What’s On @ The Reach

additional small dishwasher or beverage refrigerator may be tucked into the design. For others, the island may be a makeshift office space.

Cons Expense is a leading negative factor with regard to a kitchen island. The additional material necessary and the labor involved in installation may bust some homeowners’ budgets. Stationary islands can cost several thousand dollars to install. In smaller kitchens, an island may be impractical because of the space limitation. Islands are typically at the heart of the kitchen and may interfere with walking space or cause clearance issues when the refrigerator door or cabinet doors are open. For homeowners

who find space is at a premium in the kitchen, an island may not be the best idea. However, a rolling island that can be moved into position when needed, then stored in a convenient, out-of-theway location might be a viable option. Depending on the complexity of a kitchen island, its installation may extend the amount of time required to complete the kitchen renovation. This can prolong the length of time needed to complete the work. Running a gas or electric line and plumbing to the island may require a major overhaul. Kitchen islands are popular components of home designs. Before homeowners engage in any kitchen renovation that may include the incorporation of an island, they should know the advantages and disadvantages.

Ernie was born in a Matsqui farmhou se less than three months after World War One ended. He was a boy in an era without plumbin g and electricity, living with his parents, brother and sister in a home heated by wood and lit by candles. It was a simpler time in the nowdefunct community of Ridgedale, an area that used to be north Matsqui, near the Fraser River. It was settled by Swedes and Norwegians between the late 1890s and the early 1900s.

A remarkable perspective on local rp a sha While gjust a young boy, his grandmother history, usin showed Ernie how to draw. She drew a stick an even pencil and man and asked him to copy it. Young Ernie wit. with a stick man and soon was doing sharper started

artist, entertaining everyone from kids to seniors at venues ranging from church basements to Alaskan cruise ships.

8pon returning in 00 to Abbotsfo rd, Ernie has used his Àrsthand knowledge and artistic skills to become a valued local historian. From his work as a veteran with the Second World War Memory Project through to this venture on the 150th anniversary of the creation of the territory of British Columbia, Ernie Poignan t is even more inspired because he is living in the same area where he grew up. He has also produced do]ens of editorial cartoons for the Abbotsford Times and the Abbotsford Post.
