Michael Downey hasn’t given it much thought, yet, but it might be a good idea that he stayed home. As bomb blasts created havoc at Monday’s running of the Boston Marathon, the Chilliwack runner watched from the comfort of home. “I was supposed to go,” said Downey, who appears as the only To see people rCehgi il sl itwe ar ec kd crossing the entrant on marafinish line in a the thon website. haze of smoke, “But I just behind in it’s hard to got my training believe how and didn’t quite as something like feel prepared as this might have I wanted to happened be.”D o w n e y the ~ Michael ran marathon last year and Downey knew exactly where the explosions happened. “I was right there last year, along Boylston Street near Copley Square, and I recognize the locale very, very well,” he said. “From what I remember, everything is so tightly cordoned off on race day, and the last thing anyone would have expected is something like this. To see people crossing the finish line in a haze of smoke, it’s hard to believe how something like this might have happened.”

Chris Steunenberg, owner of Cultus Lake Water Park, stands atop the newest platform featuring three new slides. Seen here are the Bazooza Bowls which use centrifugal force to push someone around and around in the bowl until they drop through the hole in the middle and into a pool of water.

Bodacious new bowls for water park fans Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Three exhilarating new rides are under construction at Cultus Lake Water Park. Thrill-seekers and slide aficionados are already abuzz in anticipation of the June 1 opening of the park with a new sky-high tower, blue-and-white bowls, and inline raft ride. The Bazooka Bowls have twin slides leading to blue and white bowls, originally from Irvine, California, set to become the crowning glory at the water park, says owner Chris Steunenberg. “It’s state of the art, and no one

else in B.C. has them,” he tells the Progress, in an interview atop the newly built steel tower, rising high above the park. The original name of the ride, Bazooka Bowls, is being maintained because of the well-established history, and stellar feedback from a range of Youtube posters offering reviews. Riders climb the tower and get jettisoned down a covered tube before emerging into the bowl. Centrifugal force whips them around the bowl, until it slows slightly and they plunge down into a pool through the middle. There’s a lot of positive reaction to it from former water park fans

in the U.S. “It was named one of the top 10 wildest water slides in the world,” he says. “I thought it would be a perfect fit for our market place.” They heard a water park in Irvine, California was shutting down to make way for a new redevelopment. The Steunenbergs went ahead and bought the 10-year old Bazooka Bowls, tore them down, transported them and then galvanized the steel, and rebuilt the attraction at Cultus Lake. Two of the three new rides are the Bowls, and the third is an inline raft ride with a 30-foot drop,

that they’re thinking of calling the Boomerang. The four-person raft takes riders through a curving course, with three figure eights, and a big drop. It’s got high banking corners that curve right in on the rider. All together it’s been a multimillion investment, he says. The business has re-invested in the park every year for the past five years. “We’ve shopped the best rides so a local family does not have to go to California to get this incredible experience. We’ve brought California right here.” Continued: WATER/ p10

Local candidates off as campaign officially begins BC Alina Konevski The Progress

Although the candidates have been throwing their views forward for over a month, the real election campaigning season officially starts today. This means that, among other regulations, candidates can spend up to $73,000 on their campaigns from now on, and third-party advertisers, such as the B.C. Teachers Federation, are capped at spending $3,140 in one riding. The dropping of the writ also means that local candidates are officially, and tensely, off to the races. Chilliwack-Hope incumbent MLA Gwen O’Mahony, representing the NDP party, will have to defend her position against B.C. Liberal Laurie Throness, who lost out

to her in last year’s byelection, and against B.C. Conservative Michael Henshall, who worked to remove the HST. Meanwhile, she is trying to swing her fellow NDP candidate Patti MacAhonic into a win in the longtime Liberal Chilliwack riding. As Liberal MLA John Les steps down, he frees up the battlefield for five candidates. Joining MacAhonic in the arena is Liberal John Martin, who lost to O’Mahony last year as a B.C. Conservative, and has now jumped ship in favour of the Liberals. There’s also Chad Eros, the current B.C. Conservative candidate who previously ran, unsuccessfully, for city council. Kim Reimer, who led Chilliwack’s anti-water chlorination movement earlier this year, threw her name in the ring as a B.C. Green. And Abbotsford resident Michael Halliday started his own

Cs New BUFV BC Citizens on Patrol make community-wide impact s te e o t v o v 2013

Eric Welsh The Progress

The extra eyes and ears of the RCMP are running low on eyes and ears, and Barry Greenwood is hoping a membership drive gets the numbers back to where they need to be. Greenwood, the volunteer coordinator of the Chilliwack Citizens on Patrol program, believes his program is a useful tool in the war against crime. But right now, low numbers are limiting its effectiveness. A schedule on Greenwood’s desk lays out the shifts in the weeks ahead, and there are too many spots unfilled. He likes to have four people available each Friday and Saturday night — one dispatcher working from the Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services office on Wellington Avenue, and two (ideally three) at a time taking shifts in the marked vehicle that prowls Chilliwack’s streets. “Next Friday, I’m one person short for two vehicles,” he says, glancing at his schedule. “I’ve only got one team going out on Saturday and I have no dispatcher, so I’ll be doing that. Greenwood has looked through old CCOP records. When the program started in 1997, it did so with 125 people. He can only dream of what he could do with a small army like that. But even with the limited manpower and resources, CCOP still finds difference-making moments. “We run a stolen-auto recovery program for ICBC developed by the BC Crime Prevention Association,” Greenwood explains. “Using their data, which updates daily with 2,500 to 3,000 stolen vehicle license plates, we run checks. And occasionally we find one.” A couple weeks ago, a CCOP patrol found a stolen car in the parking lot of a local Tim Hortons.

they were maliciously vandalizing the main building and the portables in the back,” Greenwood recalls. “So a group of local residents had a meeting one day, and we decided to form a walking group. We went out eight to 10 at a time and started confronting these teenagers who were doing it.” Their in-your-face approach succeeded in getting the teenagers to move along. The vandalism problem was solved, for a while. But moving a problem along doesn’t end the problem, it just relocates it. Five years ago, Greenwood and the remnants of that walking group joined CCOP, looking to make a difference city wide. “Our oldest volunteer is in his early 80s, and our youngest just turned 19, and there are varied

Monday was the last official day on the job for Chilliwack MLA John Les, and he made the best of it on behalf of Chilliwack. “I’ve been able to arrange a $1 million contribution from the provincial government as seed funding for a new agricultural facility at UFV Chilliwack,” Les told The Progress. The funds have to be matched by partners such as University of the Fraser Valley, Chilliwack Economic Partners Corp. and more. CEPCO has already committed to a contribution of $200,000 for the new agriculture building, and it has taken the lead on securing other funding sources. “There are several potential partners already in discussions. “We might end up with a facility worth $3 million, up to $3.5 million in value at the end of the day,” Les said. The UFV Agriculture Department moved last year to the new Chilliwack campus in the Canada Education Park, but the department is still in need of a greenhouse, a barn as well as more classroom facilities. “This will mean building whatever is needed to continue developing an incredible agriculture program at UFV, with the proper facilities so they can

“It was actually parked right in front of a police car,” Greenwood chuckled. “The car had been stolen in Abbotsford and dumped out here.” Greenwood recalls another night when a CCOP team may have saved a life. “A team was patrolling near Watson elementary, and they noticed two guys at the back corner of the building with what looked to be a duffel bag on the ground,” Greenwood says. “Then they realized the duffel bag had boots.” CCOP volunteers are normally instructed to stay in their vehicle, take notes and avoid confrontation where possible. Except for emergencies. In this case, two of the three volunteers wanted a closer look. “They went and checked out the duffel bag, which turned out to be a very intoxicated teenager who

had fallen and hit his head, and his friends had been kicking him to try and wake him up,” Greenwood says with an exasperated laugh. “They reported back to me and I reported to the detachment. A police vehicle and ambulance appeared very quickly, and I’d like to think the actions of our people possibly saved that kid’s life.” Greenwood got involved in anticrime initiatives in the mid-1990s. Over one particularly bad summer, the Promontory resident saw the elementary school across the street from his house hit by a string of vandalism attacks. Windows broken. The playground damaged. And nothing much being done about it. It wasn’t just the school either. Nearby homes and vehicles were hit as well. “The majority were intoxicated on alcohol or drugs, or both, and

sector and the high income earners,” said Chilliwack-Hope NDP MLA Gwen O’Mahony. “Ninety-eight per cent of the population is not going to be affected by these taxation changes.” The small business income rate would be left at 2.5 per cent, applied to firms with annual revenue up to $500,000. Another $150 million is expected to come from a capital tax on financial institutions. Ralston revealed a rate of three per cent for banks and one per cent for larger credit unions. Credit unions with holdings of less than $20 million would be exempted, and Ralston said fewer than half of the 44 credit unions in B.C. are big enough to pay the tax. The personal income tax rate on earnings above $150,000 a year would go from 14.7 per cent to 19 per cent under an NDP government. The B.C. Liberal budget promised to raise it to 16.8 per cent for two years only. Continued: NDP/ p5

The B.C. NDP is proposing to collect an extra $550 million a year in new tax revenues from large businesses, highincome earners and financial institutions in their first year of an NDP government. By the third year, another $100 million would be raised from extra carbon tax on the oil and gas industry, NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston announced at a news conference in Vancouver Thursday. The B.C. Liberals’ February budget raised the corporate income tax rate to 11 per cent. The NDP would increase it to 12 per cent on Oct. 1, which Ralston said would raise an extra $200 million a year. “It’s increased taxation to the corporate

Election campaign officially under way Campaign from page 3 Jobs Plan that is creating jobs, expanding markets, attracting and encouraging investment. We will secure tomorrow by holding the line on taxes, controlling spending and balancing the budget. The choice is clear; we can keep moving forward and seize the opportunity or risk sliding back when B.C. became a have-not province for the first time in our history,” said Liberal candidate Martin. “This election is about the voters of Chilliwack having an opportunity to vote for a new government that will bring change for the better. I bring long-term vision and a strong track record of making a posi-

tive difference through caring and taking action on behalf of individuals, small business and sustainable resources,” says NDP candidate MacAhonic. “I believe rewards and incentives for innovation and opportunity are the bedrock and financial source of social responsibility...I acknowledge that times are tough, that the trend to raise taxes proposed by both the Liberals and NDP is not the answer in a recession and is ridiculous, and that layers of taxes make providing for our families and running our businesses difficult,” said Conservative candidate Eros. “As Chilliwack’s MLA, I will pledge to be accessible to the members of this community

and I will value their input. I will put Chilliwack first, unlike the B.C. Liberals or the NDP. I will also work to reform government to return decision-making authority to the local level,” said Green Party candidate Reimer. “The B.C. Excalibur Party intends to restore truth, honour, justice and transparency to the government of B.C. We believe in balance and that the land, the people and the government should be one,” said B.C. Excalibur Party leader Halliday. The public will have their first opportunity to hear all major party candidates speak at one forum this Thursday in a meeting organized by the

Chamber of Commerce. The free event will be at the Best Western at 12:30 p.m. Many more such events are scheduled during the coming month. Most candidates have already opened their offices and launched their campaigns. Green Party candidate Reimer is the latest to the scene. She is officially opening her office at 46136 Yale Road on Friday, April 19, at 11 a.m. B.C. residents have until next Tuesday, April 23, to register online to vote in the May 14 election. Those who miss the deadline can still vote, but will have to bring sufficient identification to the voting booth. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/alinakonevski

Gwen O’Mahony comments on NDP tax plan NDP from page 4

The NDP plan also includes a deficit of $790 million, which they plan to reduce over their term. “We took a critical look at it, and released what we believe are the real numbers,” said O’Mahony. “We’re not adding one cent more to the deficit than already exists...There is a deficit,

despite what the Liberals are saying.” Ralston said the NDP plan would add $1,100 to the tax bill of someone making taxable income of $200,000 a year, and he considers the increase to be a permanent measure. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said the NDP plan echoes the policies pursued by the

NDP government of the 1990s. “Taxation levels went up, a corporate capital tax was introduced, and investment and jobs fled,” de Jong said. The NDP carbon tax increase is to be phased in on “venting” emissions from oil and gas production, raising an estimated $35 million next year and tripling

over the next two years. Ralston said the NDP will not extend the carbon tax to chemical process emissions on cement plants, aluminum smelters and other industries that emit carbon dioxide beyond their use of fossil fuel. All the new revenues would be spent on programs, including reinstating non-repayable

grants for post-secondary students. NDP social development critic Carole James said details of the spending plans will be revealed next week.

Thousands of runners and spectators scattered in panic, creating an unimaginable scene of chaos. “It would be indescribable,” Downey said. “The first thoughts I had were for the people there, just thinking about the anxiety and fear that must have gone through their minds. And even now, for those who may not know — just terrible, terrible for everyone involved.” Many who left the scene left behind bags and other packages, all of which were being checked by authorities. Another blast went off at Boston’s JFK Library, about five miles away, shortly after 4 p.m. EST. The Boston Marathon draws more than 20,000 participants and 500,000-plus spectators each year. The entrant list includes one other man with local ties, 51-year-old Agassiz resident Thomas Hoogendoorn.

B.C. Liberals vow income tax freeze Black Press

The B.C. Liberal Party released its election platform Monday, promising to freeze personal income tax rates for five years and return to its plan to eliminate small business income tax. Premier Christy Clark released the platform at a campaign event in Vancouver, challenging NDP leader Adrian Dix to do the same and to participate in a one-onone debate on the different visions for the province. The B.C. Liberals’ personal tax freeze does not extend to income above $150,000, which was subject to a 2.1 per cent increase in the government’s February budget. That increase was budgeted to last only two years before returning to the current 14.7 per cent rate. The NDP has proposed to raise the rate on income above $150,000 a year to 19 per cent, permanently. The B.C. Liberals had earlier planned to eliminate income tax for small businesses with annual revenues of $500,000 or less. But faced with

deficits after the 200809 financial crisis and the rejection of the harmonized sales tax, the government decided in 2012 to hold the small business tax rate at 2.5 per cent until the province’s financial picture improved. The party’s new plan is more modest, trimming the small business rate by half a point in 2015 and another half point by 2017. The B.C. Liberal platform leans heavily on long-term debt repayment for government, BC Ferries and BC Hydro using liquefied natural gas export revenues. Clark said a conservative scenario of two large LNG export facilities and three smaller ones could provide enough revenue to pay off the province’s debt in 15 years. “The NDP’s fiscal plan is a plan to kill liquefied natural gas,” Clark said. NDP MLA Carole James rejected that claim, saying the party has endorsed LNG

exports. “LNG revenue is an opportunity, but it’s not going to solve all of our challenges,” James said. The NDP has decided on a staged release of policies, which started in

Listen, learn, vote

And so it begins – 28 days of fevered campaigning as the 2013 provincial election gets “officially” under way. Not that the parties (or the candidates) have not been campaigning already. With the advent of the fixed election date, and the byelection held in Chilliwack-Hope just a year ago, it seems the campaign began months ago. But now comes the important part – our part. During the next four weeks we have the responsibility to learn what we can about the individual candidates and the policies they represent. It’s our job to weigh their promises, assess their abilities, and register our decision. And it’s never been easier. With the pervasiveness of online sources, reading up on a candidate is only a mouse-click or a tap away. Complete party platforms are either online now or will be soon. The Progress will also be compiling its election coverage under a specific tab at www.theprogress.com. There are other opportunities. To date, more than eight all-candidate meetings have been scheduled, providing a chance to ask questions, listen, or simply meet

the candidates. But becoming educated about the issues is only part of the work. It’s what we do with that information that really counts. And so far, we haven’t done a very good job. During the 2009 general election, barely half the voters in the riding of Chilliwack bothered to vote. In Chilliwack-Hope, the turn out was better, but only by two per cent. In the byelection held in Chilliwack-Hope last year, voter participation was much worse. A paltry 41 per cent of registered voters registered their choice. Whether apathy, cynicism or laziness, it doesn’t matter. It is an abdication of a responsibility that people elsewhere in the world continue to fight and die for. It is a right granted to women in B.C. only 95 years ago, and to certain minority groups only in the late 1940s. And yet, more than half of us routinely take it for granted. Voting is a simple act that holds powerful significance. Don’t waste it. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

The enduring impact of Margaret Thatcher She stood alone by the wall, stylishly dressed in her signature conservative blue suit, blouse with a bow, and her trademark handbag hung over her stiffly bent arm. But her face was deadpan, devoid of a smile as her eyes swept the mood and movements of political leaders, delegates, and media representatives circling for their moment to talk to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. It was 13 October 1987, the tenth biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting about to open in Vancouver and hosted by the Brian Mulroney government. This was a meet-and-greet wine and cheese hour for the press No interviews. Just pleasantries. I sensed she really didn’t want to be there. But the opportunity to greet British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was irresistible. We talked. She smiled. But

her sense of awareness never left. After all this was, almost to the day, the third anniversary of the IRA bomb at a Brighton hotel that came within seconds of killing her but which killed five others. “All attempts to destroy democracy by terrorism will fail,” she declared at the Conservative Party Margaret Conference the next day. EVANS She had learned through in-your-face experience never to let down her guard. Elected as Britain’s only female prime minister in 1979, she had taken a rough, lonely road of conservative idealisms that would become the legendary Thatcherisms: popular capitalism, smaller government,

deregulation, privatization of public industries, cutting the power of the trade unions, forming strong alliances abroad, changing the British socialist mindset to one of self-reliance and independence, and speaking her mind, however brittle. She knew well the political landmines of policies that could – and did - cause upheaval, unrest and street riots but her unflagging will – the Russians dubbed her the Iron Lady – defined both the nature and the tenure of the lady. She was a staunch and stubborn fighter. In 1982 when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands, Britain took them back in a 10-week war. At home in1984 she stared down the miners in a bitter strike that went on for a year and ended with the miners defeated and a cost to the economy of $3 billion (£1.5 billion). Elected to a third term just four

months before the Vancouver event, she was now facing upheavals in her Tory party about Britain’s future in the European Community (EU) which she opposed. “In my lifetime, all the problems have come from mainland Europe and all the solutions have come from the English-speaking nations across the world” she once said of her less than glowing views on Europe. At the Commonwealth Conference, she would speak on another inflammatory topic – apartheid. She resisted sanctions against South Africa imposed by the Commonwealth and the EU and instead attempted to preserve trade with the country. In the (still then) U.S.S.R., she was among the first Western leaders to respond positively to reformist Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, declaring in 1988

“We’re not in a Cold War now.” With the United States, Thatcher had a strong alliance with President Reagan. When Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, she put pressure on President George Bush to intervene and drive the Iraqis out. Apparently he was a bit apprehensive and she reportedly told him, “George, this is no time to go wobbly.” But her own time in politics was going wobbly. Party members had turned against her and she was forced to resign in November 1990, leaving 10 Downing Street in tears and feeling betrayed. Thatcher died last week and tomorrow her ceremonial funeral with full military honours will be held in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. The lady who stood by the wall had defined an era, leaving an indelible mark on history.

Pipeline a cause for concern I would like to commend FVRD director Wendy Bales for her courage to stand apart from her colleagues and oppose the proposed expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline. The existing pipeline has been a concern of mine for some time.    Last year through correspondence with David Blain, Director of Engineering for the City of Chilliwack, I learned that the aquifer flows from the  Vedder River northward.    It would seem to me that the many large farms located north of the Kinder Morgan line

should therefore be concerned for their well water. I wonder if the City has emergency plans to supply water for these large operations in the event of a catastrophic tar sands oil spill as happened in Mayflower Arkansas on March 29th of this year.  If I were one of these farmers I would be inquiring what, if any, plans are in place. According to David Blain, the aquifer also feeds into Luckakuck Creek, that beautiful stretch along Vedder Road with lovely houses and a bird sanctuary at the north end.  Could home own-

ers awake one day to find black sludge flowing through the creek, their lawns covered with oilsoaked dying geese and ducks, a cloud of toxic gas burning their throats? Motorists along Vedder road avoiding sickened adults with blackened chicks on the roadway?  Remember Kalamazoo Michigan.  It’s time for our representatives to step up and safeguard our beautiful City, but they will only do so if we demand it.  Sandra Forbes

It could have just been the noise In regards to the article “Drumming for video shoot leads to noise complaint” (Progress, April 9), I suggest that people not jump to the conclusion that the complaint was an attempt to interfere with aboriginal cultures. I agree with the statements about the Potlatch Ban. These and many other attempts to suppress aboriginal cultures and religions are part of our historical records. They happened. But what happened on the day of the video shoot was likely something not sinister at all. A video shoot requires playing the same song many times in order to record it from different camera angles, close ups etc. Which means

that the neighbours are hearing the song many times...as though someone is playing their favourite song over and over... at full volume! It wouldn’t matter if the song was folk music, country music, Glenn Miller’s band playing Stardust...or even any sort of spiritual music. After you’ve heard it playing from the yard next door for the 14th time in the past 90 minutes, you want to go next door and ask them to stop. The police did not say that the complainer resented the type of music. It was just a noise complaint. The artist and the host just assumed the complaint was motivated by discrimination. The host was reported

as saying, “I can’t help but think it was a stereotyped reaction. I mean who calls the police on their neighbours?” The answer: Several hundred thousand people across Canada call in noise complaints to the police every year. Many of these complaints concern music or festivities. In apartment buildings I’ve lived in, police were often called to quiet a party where the neighbour refused to turn the music down. And that was just the current pop music. So, noise complaints are seldom based on cultural suppression, just annoyance. It is sad that the neighbour who laid the complaint didn’t use a more friendly approach (such

as coming over to ask to stop the music before calling the police). Perhaps if they had learned that a music video was being filmed, they might have been more patient. Then again, did anyone tell the neighbours that a video was going to be filmed and it would require playing the same songs repeatedly for a few hours? Before we jump to conclusions that our neighbours are lashing out against our cultures, perhaps we should look for simpler reasons such as...they were just annoyed by having their peaceful afternoon disturbed. Darrel Duckworth

It’s important to support local business I am semi-retired now, so this letter is not about my pocket. I’d like to appeal to people to consider supporting local businesses and producers.  It makes sense - these people would likely perpetuate the circle by spending their earnings in our community.  Last year, I saw a news item about Okanagan cherry farmers who were unable to sell their fruit so I decided to purchase some next shopping day.  I went to a store (I won’t mention the name) where you can supposedly save money on food. 

But they were selling American cherries and the reason given was that they were apparently $.05 ( 5 cents) per pound cheaper at the wholesale level.   I didn’t buy them.  Here’s another example - some well-heeled neighbours decided to go with a high end, award winning Vancouver landscape company to redo their yard.  It was a lovely job, indeed.  However, the designer must not have been aware of the fact that, being east of Abbotsford, we are a climate zone colder than points west and that plants such

as Formium (New Zealand flax) would not, and did not, survive the winter. A local landscaper would surely have known better.  We live in a farming area where much of BC’s food is being grown and, with the exception of items such as oranges, bananas and pineapples, it stands to reason to be buying food that has not traveled thousands of kilometres to grace our tables.  Shop local.

In B.C. the challenge is sometimes climate, since there is more rain and cooler days in a summer season than down south. It means a three-month window for park goers from June to

Labour Day. “But in the process of buying, reclaiming and reconditioning these rides, somehow we’ve been able to do it in a feasible manner. So our prices won’t be going up, and will stay exactly the same as last year.”

Already the hits on Facebook and the website are stacking up as people log on to find out more about the new rides. They all want to know what’s in store. So what makes the bowl ride so special?

reasons for why they do it,” he says. “Some want to ultimately become police officers. Some do it as a civic service. All of them make time between family, work and school because they want to make Chilliwack a better place.” Greenwood thinks the city has a somewhat undeserved reputation as a crime-riddled place. There is crime. There are also people trying to stop it. And he’s a big believer in the thought that good will always triumph over evil. “They don’t want to be visible and they operate in shadows,” he says. “I tell my people, ‘You may not see anybody. But they see you, and they’re moving.’ It may not be an end answer, but it’s a piece of the puzzle.” Anyone interested in joining CCOP can phone 604-393-3000, email Chwkcop@gmail.com or visit the Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services office at 45877 Wellington Avenue.

City of Chilliwack is doing its usual spring freshet preparations including keeping an eye on the snow pack. The latest snow bulletin from the River Forecast Centre says snow pack levels are at about 100 per cent of normal for the most part across the province, which is about as average as can be. Currently in the entire Fraser River system, all basins are at 101 per cent of normal snow pack. That means a five per cent chance of peak flows, said staff, or 11,500 cubic metres per second at Hope, which is what they reached last year. There’s less than one per cent of a chance of a peak flow of 15,000 m3/s, which was the Flood of 1948 level. One exception is in the Upper Fraser basin, where the current snow basin index of 119 per cent indicates a moderate increase in the seasonal flood risk. For comparison, last year’s April 1 snow basin index in the Upper Fraser was 152 per cent. Half of what happens every spring is weatherrelated, so engineering staff will continue to watch the rising levels as snow pack melts this spring. Last year high water levels flooded some of Chilliwack’s unprotected areas, despite valiant efforts to build flood-protection barriers. The next snow bulletin is expected May 8.

Wanting to provide a positive outlet for teenagers, two girls in Rosedale have launched their own fashion and lifestyle magazine. Into its section issue, We-Be Magazine delivers glossy fashion photos, and inspirational stories of surviving teenage-hood, all free online. The magazine launched so that teens “can have a voice in our community,” says 15-yearold Megan Praat. The Grade 10 Chilliwack Secondary School student started the magazine with her stepsister Olivia Jensen, a Grade 8 student at Rosedale Traditional Community School. Their second We-Be issue launched last week. The first one generated over 6,000 views online. Megan and Olivia are backed by powerhouse mom Laura Jensen Praat. “This is the age where I feel you need to wrap your arms around them, and get them involved, and keep them busy,” says Laura. The self-proclaimed “momager” – a portmanteau of actively engaged in the community through her efforts with mom and manager – spends at as many weeklyChamber hours on he least Rotary, of Commerce and Business Improvement the magazine as the girls do.

We feel like it would be good for a youth magazine to share with and inspire youth in our community” says Olivia. The girls found a fellow student, Lauren Head, to voluntarily write for the magazine, and encourage more young writers and models to step forward. In line with their mission, Megan has an article in the current issue about losing her

biological mom a few years ago. “I wrote one on coping with depression and grief, as that hits home, and so we, as a group, really want to help youth...deal with such a common thing as sadness. If people try and push it away, nothing happens to it. It just stays there. And so I really wanted to find words to help others on how to cope with such a struggle,”

she says. The girls are proud to distribute some donations from their website, sponsors, and from events, to three charities: Youth Services at Chilliwack Community Services, Free the Children, and Tanzanian nonprofit Noorkiramat’s Daughters, which helps teen mothers. What started as a teaching opportunity for mom Laura might evolve into a full-fledged business, as Laura and the girls plan to create an antibullying commercial, and branch out into a product line.

Services are offered at no cost, unless specifically noted. Funding is primarily received through government contracts and grants, yet private and corporate support is crucial to  volunteer driven and non-government funded programs. Sharing, growing and belonging are the core of a healthy family and community, and the core of all that CCS does.

Environmentally electric shop opens downtown The shop offers service, repair and sale of full-throttle electric scooters, electric bicycles, and electric mobility scooters. Modak was working as a mechanic in Vancouver when he dreamed up the idea of opening a shop to sell electric bikes and scooters. “I thought if I don’t try it out, I would kick myself later,” he said.

Customer service will get the highest priority. “It’s an absolute necessity,” he says. “I’ll go out of my way to make sure you’re satisfied.” As a mechanic, he can do all the repairs himself, but all his scooters and bikes are new, so if there’s a problem, they get sent right back to the manufacturer. So far he’s carrying brands like Go, TaoTao, and Davinci. “The response so far has been excellent,” he says. “The exposure on this corner has been very good.” There’s both an environmental, and an economic angle at play with

the brand-new bikes and scooters. “Everything is electric,” he says. “So this offers an alternative to buying a gas powered vehicle.” It will cost about 70 cents to recharge a battery and works out to about two cents per kilometre, Modak estimates. “And they’re fun,” he says. Not only that but Environmentally Electric Bikes and Scooters, or Double E for short, is perking up the block. “Since I opened about a month ago, others started renting space in this block,” he says. “So we’re gearing up for a big summer.”

Hidden treasures at The Old Leather Bottle

The greatest part of owning an antique shop is the thrill of the chase. Alvin Born’s face lights up as he talks about the search for things he’s never seen before. Having been at it for a long time personally and professionally, the co-owner of The Old Leather Bottle Antiques and Fine Things on Mill Street has seen a lot. So has his wife, Dianne. But every once in a while, they still find something new. Alvin voice gets excited as he tells the tale of a wooden box he

discovered, one that had passed through six generations and could be traced back to a captain in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy. He recalls another time, walking into a Chilliwack woman’s apartment and being floored by her furniture. “Stuff that was over 100 years old and I couldn’t find a scratch on it,” he recalls. “I was thinking, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me. Not even a mark.’ It had been in her family forever, but no one wanted it. So I was quite happy.” With a basement and garage

full of finds, Alvin and Dianne turned their passion into a business three years ago. They didn’t do so to become rich. They did it because they loved antiques, and wanted to share that love. “I have almost like a regular trap-line of guys who go for coffee and then come down to the antique store to BS, and if everyone who walked through the door spent $50...” Alvin chuckles. “But a lot of them have been collecting a long time and they bring in things I’ve never seen before in my life. I learn an awful lot talking to them.” Alvin and Dianne spend their days surrounded by conversation pieces. He points to three lamps in the window that date back to the late 1960s or early warm buddies 1970s. Then, he glances at a chaise lounge sitting a feet away. “It’s over 200 years old and it’s a huge con-

versation piece because you just don’t see anything like it,” Alvin says. Alvin gets particular amusement from the amber-coloured Chalet glass that sits on a nearby table. “A lot of people in my age group (he’s 65 years old) remember that stuff and we have lots of laughs about it,” he says. “Back in the 1960s, if you didn’t have one of those ugly-looking six-foot long coffees table with skinny legs and

a piece of Chalet glass on top, people wouldn’t even come visit you. And now it’s back in my store!” Living and breathing antiques 24/7 hasn’t diminished the love that Alvin and Dianne have for antiques. And for those who don’t yet have that love, they hopes a spin through The Old Leather Bottle provides inspiration. Reach them by phone at 604701-6933 or pop by in person at 9355 Mill St.

Hayes back on track as racing season starts Tiny rider Jake Hayes gets his mini road racing season underway this weekend, tackling big competition at the Greg Moore Raceway. The 10-year-old who stands four-foot-four and weighs a shade over 50 pounds, has made a name for himself on the track. Hayes spent last season dusting much older competition en-route to a BC spec super-sport championship. Hayes also won regional and national intermediate championships, dominating so much that he won’t be allowed to compete in that class this year. “He was too good,” said his dad, Norm Hayes. “He’s been doing stuff no other 10-year-old has ever done.” Hayes and his father

will spend a lot more time on the road this season, traveling throughout BC and Alberta in search of a Western Canadian championship. Their itinerary will include trips to Quesnel and Calgary. Hayes will compete in the formula supersport class, doing so on a brand new bike that Norm cheerfully describes as a ‘chainsaw on wheels.’ “In December a few guys from the club came to us and said, ‘Why not build something to compete in the expert class?’” Norm said. “I thought, ‘Really?’ It is a super crazy-fast bike, an absolute animal to ride. He’s been on it three times, ripping up the track.” Two weeks ago a radar gun clocked Jake

as he gave his new bike a try. He hit 99 kilometes an hour, getting around the track two seconds faster than he did at any point last year. “It is kind of scary, and his mom is like, ‘Are you kidding me?’” Norm laughed. “Jake is out there passing fullsized bikes, just blasting by them.” This Sunday, the gates open at 7 a.m. at the Greg Moore Raceway, with four-lap qualifying runs going between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Races start at 1:30 p.m., with the Western Canadian 250 Gold Cup leading off.

Phantom at nationals Cougar bats hot and cold

Three Chilliwack skaters will lace ‘em up in national competition as the Fraser Valley Phantom midget AAA female hockey team guns for a Canadian title. Hailey Smyl, Gabrielle Roy and Brianna Keats helped the Phantom to their second straight provincial title April 5. The Phantom beat the Kelowna Rockets 2-0 in a best-of-three championship series, winning by scores of 2-1 (in overtime) and 5-1. Keats had the OT winner in game one, tipping a Jodi Gentile shot

past the Kelowna keeper. Smyl had the other Phantom tally in game one and added another in the first period of game two. Smyl and Roy formed two thirds of a devastating top line (along with Sim Sidhu) that produced four of the seven Phantom goals. They’ll need to keep the offence rolling as they move into the Esso Cup playoffs. Game one sees them taking on the Edmonton Thunder April 21 at the Bill Copeland Arena in Burnaby. The winner of that game will be crowned

the Pacific Regional champion. The Phantom will then play the Quebec champ April 22 and the Western champ April 23. They’ll see the Atlantic champ April 24 and the Ontario champ April 25 to complete a grueling five games in five days schedule. The Phantom are the official ‘host team,’ even though all games are being played in Burnaby. Get info at hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/NationalChampionships/ Wo m e n / N a t i o n a l Midget/2013.aspx

YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMP Boys & Girls (Ages 6-12)

Chilliwack’s midget AAA baseball Cougars braved the snowy Coquihalla highway on the weekend, traveling to Kamloops for three games against the RiverDogs. The first game didn’t go well for the locals, who started slow and fell 3-0. Chilliwack bats produced just six hits and sloppy defence helped Kamloops score all their runs in the fifth inning. Cougar pitcher Mike Rogers went the distance, allowing five hits, one earned run and three walks while striking out three. The Chilliwack bats came alive in game two, a three-anda-half hour marathon that ended in a 16-14 Cougar win. The locals let a 9-7 lead slip away in

the seventh inning and didn’t win until the 13th. The Cougar bats generated 18 hits in this one. Ryan Petkau went four for five at the plate with a flurry of singles. Cohen Bogart posted a four RBI game, including a stand-up triple. Peyton Nerbas crushed a 350 foot home run to left field, driving in two in the top of the 10th inning. Again, sloppy defence led to several Kamloops runs. Cougar Chuckers Derek Riediger, Matt Lamb, Blake Peeling, and Dan Rogers persevered, and Rogers got the win. Sunday’s game three produced a disappointing outcome, with Kamloops winning 6-5. Chilliwack tightened up

defensively, committing just one error. Blake Peeling threw three innings, allowing three hits, three runs and two walks. Reliever Donovan Moorman took over, allowing two hits, three runs and two walks over the next three innings. The RiverDogs were up 6-3 after six, and withstood a late Cougar rally. Petkau led off the seventh with a triple and Chilliwack plated two to close the gap to 6-5. The Cougars visit Richmond for a Saturday double header, then they’re home for two against Victoria on Sunday. Get information online at www.chilliwackminorbaseball. com

Obituaries

realizing the profound impact he had on the many individuals whose lives he touched. Bob was an avid reader, loved music, live performances and sports. Since the early 80’s, he and his loving new partner and wife Amelie enjoyed many happy years of companionship and compassion together, highlighted by family, friendships, skiing, boating and world travels. His great sense of humor and laughter carried their love and their lives to Bob’s dying days. In addition, Bob was able to fulfill his great passion for sailing on sailing vessels “TUAQ” and “FOREIGN AFFAIR” as a very knowledgeable and proficient Captain. There will be no funeral service as per Bob’s request. However, a CELEBRATION of his life will be held later this spring or summer for family and friends to share their love and respect for Bob in a happier way than currently possible. During the difficult time of his illness, Bob received a huge outpouring of kindness and support from family, friends and caregivers. The family would like to thank Dr. Ken Hirst of Chilliwack, the medical and nursing staff of the various hospitals and the staff at Cascade Hospice for their care, dedication and support of Bob. In memory of Bob Carl - and in lieu of flowers, tax deductible donations can be made to: The Chilliwack Family YMCA Endowment Foundation, 45844 Hocking Avenue, Chilliwack, BC V2P 1B4.

CREWE Lera Isabelle

Lera Isabelle Crewe, born January 9, 1923 in Seoul, Korea, died at 4:20 on April 13, 2013 at St. Joseph’s CREWE Hospital in Comox. She was born an Avison and had many adventures as the daughter of a missionary doctor in Korea in the period before the Second World War. Later, as a nurse, she treated wounded combatants of many nations in Montreal, and, as one of five daughters of a doctor, was a welcome visitor in times of war on at least one aircraft carrier. She married Allen Crewe, a minister in the United Church of Canada, and had three children, Jenny, Murray, and Bill, who all, somehow, and with her example and guidance, turned out okay. 

She nurtured her own mother, her mother-in-law, a husband stricken with cancer and all who came into her orbit. She believed in love and acceptance of who you are.  A favorite quote:  “I never thought it was wrong, if you were in love”. There will be a private family gathering at a later date. Family left behind are two sisters, Margaret and Anne, three children, Jenny(Glenn), Murray(Linda), Bill (Amy), four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

With great sadness in our hearts we say farewell to my captain, husband, soulmate and best buddy CARL of 33 years, Robert (Bob) Ray Carl. Bob left us peacefully at Chilliwack Cascade Hospice on Friday afternoon, April 5, 2013 at the age of 77 years, after a brief, courageous and bravely quiet battle against cancer. In his passing days, Bob was surrounded by love and support of partner and wife of 33 years Amelie Koloska, his mother Alice Bunch, son Markus Koloska and some of his closest friends. Bob also leaves behind son Kevin, daughters Cindy and Kerri and his cousins Ron, Joan, Sandi and Dyan and their families. Bob was born in Vancouver, BC and grew up as a single-parent child with his mother. He graduated from King George High School and joined the Canadian Air Force for three years as an aircraft electrician of fighter air planes. Bob moved back to Vancouver with his young family and began his career with BC Tel (Telus) and Canadian Telephone Company and Supplies, which spanned thirty-five years. During his career, he participated in rigid training for new and challenging positions within the company. As one of the company’s primary team leaders in the 60’s and 70’s, he was offered many large jobs for installation of new telephone technologies across the country. Later in his career, he settled in Chilliwack and held several management positions with BC Tel, until he retired in 1991. Bob truly enjoyed his job with BC Tel and all the people he worked with. In his childhood years Bob was invited/sponsored to join the YMCA and grew up to become a youth leader for the YMCA of Greater Vancouver. From that time and throughout his life Bob was closely connected to the YMCA, and he gave back to his community by serving as a Board member; a founder, donor and Board member of the Chilliwack YMCA Endowment Foundation; as well as a program volunteer for many years. In addition, Bob coached various sports for his children and introduced them to travel and various outdoor activities, such as skiing, camping and water sports. Aside from being very conscientious and detailed in everything he did, Bob was a fun-loving man, a relentless and humorous tease, at times the center of the party, and he was always open to playing jokes and tricks on people. He was respected and liked by family and friends for who he was, especially his happy attitude and his love and zest for life. Even in his school years he was elected “Mr. King George” for his at times serious, yet fun and sociable personality. Bob was an advisor and mentor for many, always unassuming and not
