Electoral apathy trend needs reversing

Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand Today the election writ drops, and for the next 28 days, politicians of all stripes will be trying to convince us to check off their names before dropping our ballots into the box. Personally, I’m not so worried about who gets elected as much as I am about how many people take the time and have the interest to exercise their democratic right and duty. One of the biggest fears is that with a wretchedly low turnout of voters on May 14, a mere handful of people can determine the course of our province for the next four years. For some candidates, that works in their favour, but it does no favours for the greater good. Anyone over the age of 17 can vote, and the segment of the population between 18 and 40 is by far the majority.

Yet most of them don’t bother with, or even think about, the importance of voting. But when the economy tanks and jobs disappear, they’re the first in line to protest the actions of a government they had no hand in electing. So, one of the first duties of any candidate, and any political party, should be to engage young people any way they can. It might mean success for them, but it definitely will mean success for British Columbia, because no matter who was elected, we could live with the fact the majority has determined the best course. If this coming election is like the one in 2009, only 50 per cent of eligible voters will have turned out. Figuring in the number of candidates in each riding who tally votes, the eventual winners and losers will be determined by very few people. And unless that turnout changes; unless people of all ages become both concerned and engaged about their future, politicians and governments will only become further entrenched

in catering to those special interest groups who support them. We’ll have to see how the next 28 days go, and if somehow the candidates and parties can stir up enough interest to push voting numbers up.

If this coming election is like the one in 2009, only 50 per cent of eligible voters will have turned out. It might happen … look at the unlikely resurgence of interest in hunting. Apparently driven in part by the desire to consume truly ‘organic’ food, urbanites are flocking to hunter training programs, reversing a 30-year downward trend. In fact, since 2001 the number of people taking the course needed to acquire a hunting licence has more than

doubled, from 3,172 to 7,868 last year. That may bode well for stores selling outdoor gear and guns, though I’m not so certain it will be a serious threat to wildlife populations. Making the gun go bang, followed by the unpleasantness of evisceration, may create short-lived hunting careers for many aspiring urbanite nimrods. So, if the interest in hunting, which for many years has largely been viewed as politically incorrect, can be rekindled, there is hope that once again the fires of political passion can be stoked enough to get people voting again. It’s going to take a new way of reaching out because, unfortunately, more and more people are turning away from the traditional sources of information and relying on electronic devices to access info on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet. This provincial election could be the first we see of a real transition from traditional campaigning. We have 28 days to find out.

Accused puppy mill operator on trial Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The trial for a man accused of running a puppy mill in Abbotsford began Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Mel Gerling faces charges of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and failing to provide necessaries for an animal. Two co-accused, Damara and Patrick English, each entered a surprise guilty plea on a charge of causing an animal to continue to be in distress – an offence under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. They will be sentenced at a later date. Jeanette McKnight, a special provincial constable with the SPCA, testified that the agency started receiving complaints in 2006 about alleged puppy mills that were being operated by Gerling. One ran until 2007 on Stevens Street in Abbotsford, and was followed by an operation on McSween Road in Chilliwack. McKnight said the complaints related to issues such as urinesoaked crates, filthy surroundings, overcrowding, unclipped nails and matted fur. McKnight said, for the most part, she found the sites to be clean, with sufficient food and water for the animals. She said there were some minor issues with grooming and unclipped nails, but orders issued to Gerling were usually resolved. McKnight said she had ongoing concerns about the number of dogs on site – at one point, there were 80 – and the potential for the spread of disease.

Gerling and the Englishes (his former employees) were charged in May 2011, several months after the SPCA seized 14 dogs – shih tzus, chihuahuas, pugs and terrier crosses – from a property on Sumas Way in Abbotsford.

CAR SH9-2O1W APRIL 1

F

uel & Fire has become one of the most eagerly anticipated features of the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show, as the sights and sounds of nostalgia nitro cars and jet funny cars fired up under the stars have to be experienced to be believed.

The jet cars, in particular, are an amazing spectacle of fire and thunder made possible by the show’s location at an actual airport, thought to be a unique situation in North America. Returning for another engagement is the Warhawk Funny Car Team out of Alaskan Derek Snelson’s stable, these two cars will shoot 50-foot exhaust flames with deafening afterburner pops on Friday and Saturday night of the show.

Powering these cars is the classic Pratt & Whitney J60 turbojet that saw its beginnings in the late 1950s for both military and civilian aircraft applications. According to Snelson, the hot-rodded J60 in his car pushes out some 5,400 pounds of thrust, the equivalent of 11,000 horsepower, more than the engine any wheel-driven drag racing car has ever produced. Snelson’s best run in the funny car is a 5.75 at 273 mph, somewhat slower than a modern nitro car due to the less-aggressive launch and more linear acceleration characteristics of a thrust-based vehicle. In any case, the cars won’t be accelerating at all at the show, but that does not mean that fans can’t expect an awesome display. Ever the showman, Snelson promises to rattle off dozens of fireballs and afterburner-pops that should set off car alarms in every parking lot near Tradex, if not blow out a few windows, although hopefully not blow over the five-ton garbage bin like another car did a couple of years ago! These monsters are loudly percussive, and Snelson has tuned his jet to be the loudest out there, with the entertainment factor the most important consideration.

like being at this show because it’s so prestigious, and an awesome event. It’s the best show in the Pacific Northwest area and Western Canada, just the sheer scale of it. It’s basically the SEMA show of the North,” he says.

“WE LOVE BEING IN CANADA, MEETING ALL THE GREAT PEOPLE THERE AND PUTTING ON A SHOW FOR THEM.” Anyone who has seen Derek Snelson and teammate Barry Prescott and his jet knows how much he enjoys doing that, and as always, his performance on Friday and Saturday night of the show will be a must-see event. by Gerry Frechette

“It’s an honour to be part of this show and entertain the fans,” he says. “I really want to rattle off a bunch of afterburner pops, and my car is set up to do that.” Snelson, a show producer in his own right in the U.S., considers the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show to be the top event in this corner of the continent, in either country. “I

THE KING OF KUSTOMIZERS With a career in custom car designing that is approaching a 70 year span and over 1000 creations to his credit, labeling George Barris the greatest car customizer of all time would not be out of line. Having started modifying the appearance of cars while in his teens, George began customizing cars with his brother Sam in the late 30’s. Later their shop in Hollywood CA, became widely known. Many celebrities also sought out Barris customs for their unique designs. He is the only person to have won America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award four times. Today George remains one of the busiest customizers in the business and has been the grand marshal of the B.C. Classic and Custom Show since 2006. He is not only the presenter of the Custom Car of the Year award but also personally selects the recipient of the award each year. We caught up with George recently for an interview. Rolf – As presenter and selector (grand marshal) of the Custom Car of the Year award, what criteria do you use to choose the winner?

George – The way the vehicle looks regarding originality, design, quality and how it’s proportioned. For example if it had large flared fender openings over little bicycle wheels it would appear out of proportion. Attention to detail, fit and finish work, how the cars design conforms as a package are all important. I employ a points system where I award points in dif-

ferent categories such as upholstery, engine, body and paint, etc. Rolf – What are you working on these days? George – I’m still designing cars for customers at my shop here in North Hollywood. I’m currently working on a project for Jeff Dunham. Another one we’ve started is a car for ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons that will be a guitar he can drive. I’ve been working closely with Ford lately and I’ve been using one of their Ford Focus cars to create a modern Bat Car for Galpin Motors. Rolf – Today you are obviously busy with your custom car business. Can you see a time when you will retire or are you in your retirement now? George – I never really considered retiring from what I’m doing. My daughter Joji and her son run the business today and are working on a book. Just recently we made arrangements with NHRA for a special drag race at the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals at Pomona last November. Paired up to race each other was the Munster’s Coach against the Dragula (Grandpa’s Dragster) which recreated the 1964 race we did for the Munster’s TV series. In addition the original Batmobile from the TV series was there to do a burnout! Editors Note: George Barris is appearing at this year’s show courtesy of Great Canadian Oil Change. by Rolf Norberg

AMERICANCLASSIC

AMERICAN GRAFFITI MOVIE HELPED REJUVENATE THE CAR CULTURE

Long before Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones became household names, a low-budget cinematic project made its debut in theatres to little fanfare and critical acclaim. But gradually the merit of this groundbreaking movie about teenage “rights of passage” became apparent. George Lucas, the mastermind behind the “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” franchises, had just finished his first film in the early 1970s, a sci fi movie titled “THX 1138,” and was anxious to bring to the big screen a story he was familiar with. Drawing heavily upon his own experiences as a youth growing up in Southern California, George set out to write and direct this brilliant motion picture known as “American Graffiti.” This was not just a great car flick; this was a great film. Set in Modesto California in ‘62 but filmed in San Rafael and Petaluma, this film tells the tale of four lads whose lives are intertwined during one late summer night. It was a rare time in American history, a period filled with change, and Lucas capitalized on this underlying facet to deliver his story. Changing clothing styles, evolving tastes in music, the sexual revolution and even Detroit’s horsepower wars were all used in portraying youth caught in a time that could be termed the end of the “age of innocents.” For George, the road to bring his script to the theatres was fraught with pitfalls and, as with any large project, many obstacles had to be overcome to reach completion. Having his script turned down by many production studios, it was Universal Studios that finally agreed to take on the project. George then battled with studio executives to keep it as a

feature film as opposed to their idea of creating a “made-forTV movie.” After securing assistance in the form of a writer, Gloria Katz, to help him write the screenplay, he landed a producer in the form of Francis Ford Coppola, who had just finished producing “The Godfather.”

(Richard Dreyfuss) and Joe the Pharaoh watched as their plan to “fix” Holstein’s cop car transpired. Or the attempts of Toad ( Charles Martin Smith) to secure a bottle of “Old Harper” for his bitchin’ babe Debbie. And, of course, John Milner’s exploits with his unlikely passenger, teenybopper Carol (Mackenzie Phillips), were award-winning material.

When it came time to choose cast members, George relied mostly on unknowns as this was a low-budget film ($750,000). For those actors, “American Graffiti” was a stepping stone to stardom as Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfuss, Suzanne Somers, Cindy Williams and Mackenzie Phillips, among others, went on to have very successful acting careers.

Credit also goes to this movie for being the first to assemble sound bits of rock and roll hits of the time as background music that ran the entire length of the film, followed by the release of a movie soundtrack album. “Graffiti” can also be called a landmark film for focusing on not one but four characters and their experiences, a concept that was unheard of then but common in today’s movies and television.

After the movie’s release in ‘73, its popularity steadily grew to the point where it received a nomination for Best Picture at the Academy Awards and has since been voted one of the American Film Institute’s top 100 films of all time, right up there with “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Gone with the Wind.” What has made this movie so popular with movie fans and critics alike is George’s interpretation of this time and place in America, his innovative techniques in film production and editing, plus a superb screenplay. George used numerous resources to compile many elements that brought us back in time to a much simpler, fun place. His attention to detail was remarkable, with items that would evoke pleasant memories – such as Mel’s Drive-In, the high school sock hop, hot rods cruising the town’s main drag, backseat escapades, DJ Wolfman Jack’s radio banter and the final showdown between the Champion and the Challenger on Paradise Road. All played a part to set the tone for an enjoyable remembrance. Who could forget that scene where Kurt

Abbotsford News Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Part of George’s recollection of this time in America’s past involved the ritual of cruising and racing, and he went to great lengths to see that the cast members were not the only stars of the movie. Several cars had to be transformed to fit the part. The ‘49 red Merc driven by the Pharaohs was originally a stock ‘51 Merc when bought for use in the movie. It was given a quick top chop, a front bumper borrowed from a ‘70 Camaro as a floating grill, and then splashed with a coat of red. For Falfa’s “Bad Ass” ‘55 Chevy, four cars were used in production. Two were bought from a wrecking yard to be used as cars in the final crash scene; one was flipped, the other set on fire. A third car was used for interior shots. The fourth car generates the most attention as it was originally used in the filming of “Two Lane Blacktop.” In “Graffiti,” Falfa’s ‘55 was supposedly equipped with a 409 Chevy engine but in reality it was said to have an L-88 427 Corvette engine under the hood. As for Milner’s yellow coupe, known as the “fastest thing in the valley,” it was a street rod that was converted to movie

car status. Originally, plans called for a sectioned body but soon after the grill was cut down, time restraints forced the cancelation of that modification; thus the reason for the shortened grill. Because of the mostly night filming, yellow paint was chosen so it would stand out in the dark. When this movie was released to the public in 1973, the car hobby and cruising in general was on life support. It was a period when hot rods were no longer hot, toned down due to gas rationing created by the oil embargo, and they were relabelled “street rods.” To make things worse, vans were the latest craze. Then along comes “American Graffiti.” It was so different from the typical car movies of the time that were often exploitative and filled with car chases. It has been 40 years since this movie was produced, and in recognition of this milestone, the BC Custom and Classic Car Show will feature a celebration of this special anniversary. Scheduled to appear on this weekend will be not only tribute cars but also stars from the movie. Bo Hopkins, who played the antagonistic Joe the Pharaoh, will be in attendance and may be heard to say, “It’s not the size of the scratch that

A21

matters, it’s the principle.” Candy Clark, whose character Debbie was out for a night of adventure, will make an appearance all three days of the show. “I bet you can find us some brew” is just one of her memorable quotes. But likely garnering the most interest will be Paul Le Mat, who had the starring roll as tough guy hot rodder John Milner. Having earned local legend status behind the wheel of his yellow ‘32 coupe, John cruised his way into the hearts and minds of many movie fans. “OK, Toad, we’ll take ‘em all” is a line from the movie that will forever be synonymous with John Milner. With Lucas’ history of creating sequels (and prequels) for his movies, perhaps we can expect to see him come out with an “American Graffiti lll” (“More American Graffiti” was released in 1979), but since Joe the Pharaoh and John Milner were written out of the script in the second movie, this might be the last opportunity to see them again. by Rolf Norberg

BUT THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS YEAR’S EVENT HAS TO BE THE MULTI-AWARDWINNING ABSOLUTE MADNESS, A 1934 FORD 3-WINDOW COUPE OWNED BY JIM LINTON. Decked out with blue paint, red flames and plenty of chrome, it’s hard to believe this impressive machine was once in terrible condition. Purchased a decade ago, the car was in rough shape when Linton first acquired it.

ABSOLUTE MADNESS 2013 FEATURE CAR “It was bad. I bought it sight unseen out of North Dakota,” he explained. Having only seen pictures, Linton said once the car arrived, it was “way worse” than he had imagined. “We think it had been laying on its side in water for years. There was rust that was covered in duct tape and primered. There was substantial rust damage.” Not to be deterred, Linton and his team handmade sheet metal pieces to replace the damaged areas. “All of the repairs and body mods we did, you know the body itself is probably only 20 per cent original Henry Ford sheet metal.” The desire to modify a 1934 Ford Coupe came to Linton after he saw a photo of someone else’s work. “I said, ‘you know, I’d like to do one like that one day.”’

30 YEARS EXPERIENCE


Abbotsford News Tuesday, April 16, 2013

After that, the search was on for a car body. Shortly after, Linton met car builder Bill McLaughlin at a car show and the two began to collaborate on the job. Originally, the project wasn’t going to be as elaborate as it eventually turned out. Linton said the goal was to create a “show driver” type car. However, after a year of work, the goal changed. “I started thinking I should go for the Ridler Award in Detroit at the Autorama.” The Ridler is the pinnacle of hot rodding and custom car awards, but to have any chance of winning it, every part of the vehicle has to be perfect. According to Linton, every fastener, every piece, every detail could win or lose you the award. He said it changes everything you do. “You can’t cut corners anywhere because you waste everything you do up to that point.” Having made the decision to “go for it,” Linton spent about seven years bringing the Ford up to the standard he wanted. Then, he debuted his creation in Detroit at the Autorama in 2010. In order to qualify for the Ridler, the vehicle has to make the “Great Eight” – the top eight cars at the show. Linton made it into the final eight, but failed to capture the top award. “Hey, just making it into the Great Eight made me proud.” Since making its debut, the ’34 Ford has been shown up and down the West Coast and picked up more than 25 awards, from best in class to best paint, outstanding

THE PERFECT

engine and best undercarriage.

FUNDRAISER!

But after all its initial success, Linton decided to take the vehicle off the circuit. “For the past year and a half, it has basically been retired.” Until now. Organizers of the BC Classic and Custom Car Show have been trying to get Linton, a resident of Washington State, to bring the Ford to Abbotsford for the past three years. This time, everything fell into place. In order to show the car, Linton needs to haul the vehicle, prep it, change the shocks and make several other preparations. Fortunately for local car enthusiasts, builder Bill McLaughlin is also available this weekend, which is allowing Linton to bring the Ford up to Abbotsford.

MSA FORD is pleased to offer the community this great way to raise funding!

In fact, he plans to bring his other special project, a 1968 Firebird convertible, to Tradex.

Cars have always been a huge part of Linton’s life. “I was born with it. My dad calls it a sickness. Ever since I was a kid, I was drawing cars with crayons and building car models.”

He moved up to buying old cars and fixing them up. Eventually, he started building hot rods. Now retired, Linton said he has no plans to stop. He just purchased some land and started his own hot rod shop. “It’s not a business. It’s for my hobbies. It’s for my sickness.”

Gene: This is something that has developed over the last several years and taken me around the world, as far away as Japan and Australia. In Canada alone I’ve conducted workshops in Nova Scotia, New Bruinswick, Winnipeg and in the Vancouver area. In your town I’ve done several workshops as well as painted a number of cars, one ’65 Impala for the C.U.T. high school program (Customs for Urban Teens) and a ’52 Chevy and ’34 Ford coupe for John Foxley, all “fade away” paint schemes. 2011 was the first year for the Custom Car Classroom at the BC Classic and Custom Car Show. Show producer Richardt Scholz brought me in to customize a car in the show over a three-day period. Working with local talent such as Brad Purser and others, we started by primering the ’48 Ford coupe of Dave

OPEN HOUSE

If you were to look back through the history books, you would find a handful of world-renowned craftsman. Among this elite group of men you would find Gene Winfield, pioneer care customizer and innovative automotive artist. Known for his signature “face away” paint jobs, Gene has also built some of the most original customs over a 60year period including the Reactor, Strip Star and the Jade Idol. Starting at a shop in Modesto, CA, he began to make a name for himself with unique designs for clients’ cars. In 1965 Gene moved on to the movie and TV industry which required him to build promotional vehicles for their shows. Today he is still busy at the age of 84 building customs at his home in California’s Mojave desert and conducting hands-on workshops where budding customizers learn firsthand from a master of car customizing.

Gene: Last August we took a ’32 Ford roadster with a NASCAR motor in it out to the Bonneville Salt Flats where I drove it on a 219 mph run. Unfortunately the surface was slippery and I ended up spinning the car several times. CSSM:I understand you worked with the AMT Model Corporation designing models and later you built the real thing. Gene: Yes, I was asked to take over the speed and custom division of AMT in Phoenix, which produced full-scale specialty vehicles for the movie and TV industry.

NITRO MADNESS

The 17th edition of the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show will be featuring the Fuel & Fire Cacklefest at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday night, and a matinee for the nitro cars only (no jets) on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. What is a Cacklefest you ask? Well it’s a free show within the show, a chance to send not just your eyes but all five of your senses on a visceral vacation as we fire up some of drag racing’s most famous and iconic nitro-guzzling behemoths and then cap it all off with a Jet Car flame show that quite simply has to be seen - and felt - to be believed.

for the big dogs that follow … the TOP Fuel dragsters. These are the kings of the sport and are motor-vated by the renowned Chrysler Hemi power-plant. A high-tech magneto ignites cylinders that have been packed beyond capacity with exotic nitromethane fuel through the efforts of a set of fuel injectors perched atop a magnesium supercharger. These motors are set on KILL and manage to wring an astounding 2500 horsepower out of a 400 cubic inch engine.

But wait! Don’t leave your seat, as we’ll wrap up with not one, but TWO of the most awe-inspiring vehicles on earth … the Jet-Powered Funny Car. You’ll witness burner-popping combat between Yakima Washington’s Derek Snelson in the Warhawk Jet Funny Car and the flame throwing dragster of local legend Barry Prescott. (A man who is JUST as fast OFF the track.)

Yes my friend, if you’ve always wondered what would happen if you attached a 20,000 horsepower fighter plane jet engine to a custom crafted, state-of-the-art tube chassis and lit the fuse, you are about to find out. It’ll be a Gearhead’s Symphony of Fire … the flames shooting for the sky … the ground pounding beneath your feet and your ear-drums begging for mercy. You’ll get up close and personal with the stars and the cars as you travel back in time to the mid-60s when these actual cars terrorized the hundreds of drag strips around North America. Yet unlike other car shows that deliver only the sight of these behemoths, we will assault your eardrums and sear your nasal passages with the beloved, sweet, yet acrid scent of burnt NITRO. The fire up starts with the injected JUNIOR Fueler of Jerry King. This small block Chevy powered dragster whines and snarls like a hornet with P.M.S. and serves as an appetizer

It’s hard to believe but these fighter plane engines are hopped up and belch 30 foot blasts of flame, 100 feet tall plumes of smoke and the much beloved Burner Pops. (Giant fire balls that explode with a percussion that’ll rattle your sternum.) The pride of San Bernadino, that sexy sexagenarian, Wayne “The Peregrine” King will battle Don Love in the legendary car of Kansas John Wiebe to see who can pull the highest decibel levels. Back in 1963 Wayne was the winner of the legendary March Meet with this very car.

For several years now, the title sponsor of the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show has been Lucas Oil Products of Canada, and local representative Harry Larson is excited about the company’s involvement in this year’s show. “It keeps our name in the forefront, because

Harry Larson we have a lot of products that are made for

custom and performance cars and motorcycles,” says Larson. “We get to meet the average enthusiast who has tried one of our products and comes back to tell us how pleased they are that the product works the way that we say it will. People come to us with a problem they are having with a vehicle, and we are able to help them solve it.” There will be several new Lucas products making their debut at the Show. The Slick Mist line is being expanded, with Speed Wax

added to the Interior Detailer and Tire & Trim Shine. This year also sees new developments in motor oil, with Zinc Additive now available for racing engines and older street motors that need the extra lubricant advantages of zinc, and synthetic motor oil now available in 5-litre jugs, adding to the new products in the ever-growing Lucas Oil catalogue. In the Lucas Oil booth again this year will be the blown dragster of John Evans, and the wild multi-engine tractor puller that has wowed the crowds for a couple of years. Of course, drag racing fans can look forward to Lucas Oil sponsorship of two of the biggest events at Mission Raceway Park this season, as well as events at Ashcroft, and anyone with a speciality vehicle should stop by the Lucas Oil booth at the Show and see their wide range of lubricants and products. by Gerry Frechette

Heat finish strong at home

A35

Sweep Marlies after being eliminated from playoff contention

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

They won’t make the playoffs, but it’s hard to find fault with what the Abbotsford Heat accomplished on home ice this season. The Heat wrapped up their home schedule with a weekend sweep of the Toronto Marlies, winning 3-0 on Friday and 3-1 on Sunday at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. In the process, they set a franchise record for home wins in a season with 23. It’s because of their road record that the Heat will miss the post-season party – they’re 11-18-7 away from home for 29 points, second-fewest in the AHL. They were mathematically eliminated last Wednesday, when the Chicago Wolves edged the Grand Rapids Griffins 3-2. “I think this group feels deprived of what they’re not going to get,” Heat coach Troy Ward said, alluding to his team’s impending playoff-free spring. “They’re still hungry to prove they belong somewhere, and I think that’s what happened (vs. Toronto). They’re a very hungry team.” The Heat continued their dominance of the Marlies – they went 6-1-1 against the Maple Leafs affiliate this season – and outstanding performances by Tyler Ruegsegger, Carter Rowney and Mark Cundari highlighted the weekend sweep. Ruegsegger picked up a goal and an assist en route to first star honours on Friday, then notched the game-winner on Sunday to stretch his personal goal-scoring streak to three games. Rowney, signed to an amateur tryout contract last week out of the University of North Dakota, notched the first goal of his pro career on Sunday. Afterward, the wattage of his smile could have powered the Las Vegas strip. “I was kind of shocked, stunned,” he said. “There’s a lot of excitement to get that first one out of the way.” Blueliner Cundari, acquired by the

Heat centre Ben Street protects the puck against pressure from Toronto Marlies defenceman Morgan Reilly during Friday’s game at the AESC.

Calgary Flames at the NHL trade deadline in a deal that saw Jay Bouwmeester head to the St. Louis Blues, picked up four assists on the weekend. He also dropped the gloves with Toronto’s Brad Ross on Sunday, and Ward lauded his skill and grit.

Heat goalie Danny Taylor was terrific, making 25 saves for his third shutout of the season on Friday, but he was knocked out of Sunday’s game after a collision with Marlies forward Greg McKegg. He seemed to be favouring his left leg as he left the ice.

Ward indicated the injury didn’t appear to be overly serious, but said Taylor is unlikely to play in the Heat’s last two games of the season, this Friday and Saturday at the Oklahoma City Barons. For more coverage of the weekend games, visit abbynews.com

BAKER, Clara Alvina With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear mother, Clara Alvina Baker, (nee Hartwig) at Menno Home, on April 9, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband, Carl in 2001 & son Jim, in 2002. Clara was born in Kuroki, Saskatchewan, on 13 July 1923 to August and Emelie (Radke) Hartwig. She was the 9th child of 11 brothers and 3 sisters. She came to Abbotsford in 1943 working on pioneer Karl and Minnie Baker’s 44 acre Raspberry Farm (now the home of the University of the Fraser Valley who named their student’s residence, “Baker House” in their honour). Clara married the Baker’s eldest son, Carl, in 1944 and they spent most of their married life in Abbotsford. Clara was a Special Lady, always caring for and about others. She was a devoted volunteer at Maplewood House for over 20 years, serving at luncheons, assisting residents on outings, calling Bingo, running the Tuck Shop and doing the resident’s mending. She carried out these activities up to the age of 88 years with love and devotion. She also volunteered at M.S.A. Manor, Sherwood House and the Red Cross loan cupboard. She was a frequent visitor to people with mobility issues who were in need of a visit or a hug! She is survived by her daughters, Shirley (Mike) Hewat of Williams Lake, Betty (Larry) Seebach and Sharon (Jaime) Toscano of Abbotsford; 5 grandchildren: Debbie, Tracy, Melanie, Bryan and Michael; 4 great-grandchildren: Kaylee, Stephen, Ashley, & Matthew. Also siblings: Tillie Baker of Surrey, Clarence (Barbara) Hartwig of Central Lake, Michigan, Harold Hartwig of Williams Lake and sister-in-law Margaret Baker of Abbotsford. Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 2pm at the ABC Restaurant Banquet Room, 32080 Marshall Rd. Abbotsford. We would like to thank the Menno Home staff on West I for their loving care. Donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Menno Home Benevolent Society.

OBITUARIES

Alice Bauman Krahn July 17, 1925- April 10, 2013 Born Dalmeny, Saskatchewan to Alexander and Elizabeth (Quiring) Bauman. Died at the Cottage Pavilion, Abbotsford, age 87 years. Predeceased by her parents, her beloved husband Henry, and brothers Edward and Clarence. Alice was a determined and energetic person who lived life on her terms. She wanted to learn, was determined to accomplish something in life, and above all, was fiercely determined to care for her family. She finished high school at the Mennonite Educational Institute in 1945 despite having to stay at home for several years and look after her younger siblings. She obtained an undergraduate degree and trained in nursing at the University of British Columbia, putting off marriage and family until her studies were complete. Together with Henry, who grew up on a farm across the road, she received a call to serve as a missionary for the Mennonite Brethren Church. They completed theological and practical training in California and Oklahoma before serving in India at Mahbubnagar and Hyderabad between 1955-1961. Returning to North America, she supported the family by working as an acute-care nurse in Seattle, and finished her BSc in Chemistry, graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Washington. When the family moved to Fresno California, she worked as Director of Care in a Long-term care facility, and as a Nurse Practitioner. In the early years after India, she financially supported and raised the family as well as supporting Henry as he completed graduate studies in history, and began his academic career. When Henry was called to be the President of the Mennonite Brethren Bible College in Winnipeg MB in 1974, she retrained as a teacher. Until 1985, she taught Kindergarten in New Bothwell, MB, commuting steadfastly 45 km each way through the bitter winters in her diesel Chevy pickup. She excelled as a hostess, creating a home that was welcoming to many students and friends, as well as faculty. On Henry’s death in 1985, she moved to the family farm in Abbotsford and began a new career as raspberry farmer. Many were the employees and acquaintances who were bemused and charmed by the tiny old lady with the beret, wispy grey hair, and large purse, who was still driving tractors and bossing people about well into her eighties. Alice knew both great love and great sadness. She loved her Henry deeply and powerfully, and carried that flame until her last days. She also knew great loss. She buried two infant daughters, one in India, and one in California. Grief at Henry’s loss was still keen after nearly 30 years. She is deeply mourned by Stan Krahn, Valerie and Stewart Pierce, and Murray and Linda Krahn, as well as sisters Mathilda and Alma. She will be missed by grandchildren Matthew, James, and Andrew Pierce, and Thomas, Philippa, and Henry (Harry) Krahn. Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford. Online condolences can be left at www.woodlawnfh-abbotsford.com Woodlawn Funeral Home (604) 853-2643
