Rosedale home destroyed by fire

Firefighters from several Chilliwack halls were on scene at a house fire in the 51000-block of Old Yale Road in Rosedale Sunday night. The call came in around 10 p.m. Sunday, and crews arrived to find the two-storey home fully engulfed in flames. Witnesses said they heard several loud explosions coming from the house before firefighters arrived. The fire was so intense that it consumed the gas meter, producing a small gas leak that required Fortis to disconnect services at the road. The home was completely destroyed. It is not believed anyone was home at the time. Firefighters worked for two hours to control the fire The cause of the fire is under investigation by the RCMP and by fire department officials.

Board to vote on early French immersion tonight If approved, the program would add $1 million in additional operating costs Alina Konevski The Progress

The future is bleak for an early French immersion program in Chilliwack. Ahead of a final vote on the option at Tuesday’s public board meeting, superintendent Evelyn Novak has laid out the projected costs. In its first year of implementation, potentially 2014-15, EFI would cost $578,035. This amount would cover the first batch of 20 kinder-

Retail 85¢ PLUS PST Box $1.00

garten and 22 Grade 1 EFI students for one year. In subsequent years, as this group moves up the EFI education ladder and additional classes join the bottom ranks, the cost would multiply, reaching over $1 million in annual operating costs within five years. The school district already projects a budget deficit of $200,000 for the upcoming year. “This would be an additional budget consideration,” said Novak of the EFI program. “We would

have to go back to our budget and reduce areas that we’re currently doing. We would have some cutting.” The entire federal grant that the district receives for running a French immersion program is allocated to the current Late French Immersion classes, about $140,000 annually. An EFI program would not trigger any additional provincial or federal funding, other than a total of $15,000 for resources. The only hope for additional funding would be from students enrolling in the district who would not have otherwise, which would increase the

district’s per pupil grant. “We heard the parents in wanting to have it implemented. We wanted to make it work. The board believes in programs of choice and offering a variety of programs to students. They believe French immersion is valuable. It’s the other challenges that impact the decision as well,” said Novak. The school board is not considering combining the EFI class grades, and the cost would be the same if fewer than the highest number of students enroll in the program. The Chilliwack chapter of Canadian Parents for French, a

group that advocates for an EFI program, is optimistic that the vote tomorrow night will go in their favour. “I’m excited because it’s the closest thing we’ve seen to actually having an early French immersion program in Chilliwack,” said president Jocelyn Thomas. “I think if every other district can do it, we should be able to as well.” If the board approves the program, Novak has recommended that Cheam Elementary School serve as the site because it has two possible classrooms available.

Keep medical marijuana off farmland, cities say Lower Mainland leaders say new pot factories an industrial use Jeff Nagel Black Press

Lower Mainland politicians want any new licensed medical marijuana factories built on industrial land, not already scarce farmland. A resolution passed Thursday by the Lower Mainland Local Gover nment Association (LMLGA) urges the Union of B.C. Municipalities to lobby for the industrial-only land restriction as the federal government prepares to approve new large-scale indoor growers. Ottawa announced in January it will phase out individual licences for medical marijuana users to

Police look for clues after body surfaces in the Fraser

grow pot in their own homes and instead have all medical pot grown and distributed by highly regulated, secure commercial operators. Surrey Coun. Linda Hepner said medical marijuana is a pharmaceutical that should be grown in industrial zoned areas rather than competing against food crops for agricultural land that’s already too expensive for some prospective conventional farmers. “We would be utilizing a lot of agricultural land for something that could be in a greenhouse environment in an industrial zone,” Hepner said. “We don’t want to see all our agricultural food space in marijuana,” added outgoing LMLGA

president Barbara Steele. Also backing the resolution were several politicians from Fraser Valley communities. The federal health ministry intends to launch the new system by April of 2014. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin is one local leader who disagreed. “We feel very strongly our industrial park is not the appropriate place,” he said. The main concerns, Daykin said, are odour for neighbours and whether operators have tough enough security to fend off growrips by gangsters. Maple Ridge wanted the federally regulated pot growers to

instead be limited to agricultural parcels, with large setbacks, similar to what would be used for a mushroom or hog farm. “We’ve got somebody who is already interested in putting up a 26,000 square foot facility,” Daykin said. Hydroponic pot farms grown in well-gated industrial buildings would still be a good fit on lowquality agricultural land with marginal soils, he said. Daykin dismissed concerns that weed might crowd out food crops. “The reality is there’s probably only going to be 60 to 70 of these facilities across the country,” he said. “We might get one or we might not get one. It won’t hurt my feelings if we don’t.”

Cities want integrated approach to flood control Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

A local fisherman made a grisly find early Saturday morning in the Fraser River near Cannor Road. A First Nations fisherman told RCMP he was pulling in his net, and found it surprisingly heavy. When it was about four metres from shore, he noted a partially submerged body in a black jacket had come to the surface. “Before the net could be brought in, the body broke free from the net and rolled back into the river,” reported Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. RCMP say it was impossible to tell the gender or ethnicity of the body, but it was described as someone with a small build, about 180 lbs, wearing a black jacket with a zipper on the wrist area.   Chilliwack Search and Rescue volunteers were called to the scene to assist with extensive river patrols but to no avail. Given the strength and speed of the river current, Search and Rescue groups from Abbotsford and Mission were activated to start patrols as well. RCMP Air Services called out the Air 1 helicopter for an aerial search, however both air and water searches did not recover the body that had gotten caught in the net. Police agencies are seeking information about any missing persons who may match the description, and Chilliwack RCMP are actively investigating.

A big concern for Daykin and other Lower Mainland leaders is what will be done to enforce the shutdown of existing federally approved medical marijuana growers, which have long been criticized for safety hazards and ties to the illegal drug trade. Health Canada won’t share their locations with local cities, so civic teams continue to conduct fire safety inspections that root out many growers. Medical marijuana grows often turn out to be in violation of health, fire, building or plumbing safety regulations. “The big issue for us is the fire hazard –  the grow ops in the residential areas that go up in smoke,” Steele said.

As waters of the Fraser River rise during the annual freshet, municipalities are collaborating on an integrated, regional approach to flood management. Chilliwack city councillor Jason Lum, who chairs of the Flood Control and River Management committee at the Lower Mainland Local Government Association, is a fan of the idea. “Taking a regional approach makes sense. Flood waters, should they overtop our works, will not stop when they reach the next municipal boundary. So an integrated approach is the way to go,” he said. It’s actually a strong message for whatever B.C. party is elected this week, said Lum. It means that communities are pledging up front to help each other and share information. “It also means that municipal governments are ready to work together to ensure the safety of our citizens, our assets and our economies.” A resolution to that effect passed as a late item off the floor at the May 7 LMLGA meeting during the policy resolution sessions, asking for multiyear funding. It was drafted by City of Chilliwack staff for the committee, and underwent a minor change that night before the affirmative vote at LMLGA. “Now that they’ve passed and endorsed it, it goes on to UBCM,” Lum said. Union of B.C. Municipalities can then lobby the province to make Continued: Flood/ p4

Prescription drug abuse is becoming rampant among youth.

governments stand willing to work together on common issues around flooding and river management. We believe it will strengthen the case for more senior government funding.” Making the business case is the first step, he said. “What I think will come of that is the idea that we want a more

predicable funding model for flood management and flood control infrastructure. We know that no municipal government in the province has the resources to take it on alone. So now we have a starting point. The work begins.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

Advance polling shows growth Alina Konevski The Progress

People are seizing the province’s offer of more opportunities to vote. Advance voting for this election is up 25 per cent in Chilliwack, and 64 per cent in Chilliwack-Hope, as compared to voting in the 2009 election. A total of 6,758 people cast their ballots last week, Wednesday to Friday, in the Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope ridings, out of the 72,382 registered voters. These figures do not include advance voting on Saturday.

District electoral officer for Chilliwack-Hope, Bev Kennedy, believes that the remarkable rise in advance voting in the riding is due to heavier television and print advertising, and campaigning on social media. Provincially, 25 per cent more ballots were cast last week than in the same period in 2009. Advance voting has been steadily increasing since 1996,

when it stood at only 6 per cent of the total people who voted. By the 2009 election, 18 per cent of all votes came through the advance polls. Since 2001, the province offered advance voting on four days, and extended the hours to the current 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in 2009.

Hiking and Knee Pain Hiking up can be tough work but we often take rest breaks. Then, after taking in the views, it’s all downhill from there. Unfortunately, often this is true in more ways than one. Going up is hard work for the muscles and lungs, but it is the coming down that can be the toughest on the knees. Nevertheless, whatever goes up must come down! Common Sources of Knee Pain: Although there are many sources of knee pain, a few ones common to hiking include: bruising behind the knee cap, strain to the inner knee cartilage or ligaments, and irritation of the iliotibial band on the outer side of the knee. It is not uncommon for these issues to occur together. Tight structures around the knee, as well as weak or tired muscles, often contribute to these injuries. It doesn’t help that we so often decide to take on hiking Mount Cheam, before we have successfully completed Teapot Hill! Knee cap pain is often felt at the front of the knee. Normally the knee cap is compressed against and glides on the larger knee bones as we walk. Excessive walking or sudden increased hiking can cause abnormal compression resulting in inflammation. This is especially true when there are tight muscles pulling the knee cap slightly out of place and weak or tired muscles not keeping it in place. Pain on the inside of the knee is often associated with strain on the inner ligament (collateral ligament) or cartilage (meniscus). Twisting movement of the knee can cause such injuries. Although outer knee pain can also be caused by injury to ligaments or cartilage, a tight iliotibial band is commonly at fault. This band runs down from the outside of the hip to the outside of the knee. It helps control hip / pelvis position and also influences the knee cap position. When it becomes tight, or the muscles controlling it fatigue, it rubs harder on the outside of the knee causing pain with each step. This irritation is commonly associated with the forces of hiking downhill. The good news is you can help yourself. This is best done BEFORE you go hiking and get sore!

After the yogurt bar stop, her campaign bus headed to Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where incumbent cabinet minister Ida Chong is in a three-way battle with NDP candidate Jessica Van deer Veen and Green Party candidate Andrew Weaver. Dix’s round-the-clock push is unprecedented in modern B.C. politics. It started Monday morning in Comox, with flights to Kamloops, Williams Lake, Prince George and Penticton, then a bus trip through Keremeos, Hedley, Princeton, Hope, Langley, Richmond, a 4:30 a.m. breakfast in Vancouver, a stop at Burnaby and finally a rally at Dix’s campaign office.

all activity, the body needs time to adapt. Practicing what you want to do allows the needed muscles to get stronger and build endurance. It’s when they tire out and it’s still a long way back to the car that the trouble, and often pain, sets in. If you are just starting hiking for the year, begin with some walks along the Vedder Trail. Then try Teapot Hill or the Seven Sisters, both in Cultus Lake area. Progress to hikes like Lindeman Lake and Vedder Mountain before taking on Elk Mountain or Cheam Mountain. Always use good footwear. 2) Use a hiking pole. This helps disperse the load from the legs to the arms, especially when hiking downhill. It also reduces the risk of slipping and twisting the knee. 3) Take your time. A good rule of thumb is to give yourself just as much time to come down as you did to hike up. If you rested going up, make sure you rest going down. You may not feel tired on the way down, but your knees and the muscles around them need the break. Trust me, it’s better to take a break BEFORE any pain starts. 4) If you do get sore, make sure you ice the knee for 10-15 minutes in the sore area when you get home, again in the evening & again the next day. Ice is simple and it helps limit the inflammation. 5) Practice some stair exercises (walking up and down) during the week. This way your muscles won’t be so surprised on the weekend hikes! 6) If you do experience knee pain that doesn’t settle in a day or two, or keeps returning, follow up with a physiotherapist for an assessment. The physiotherapist can help you identify muscles that are tight or weak. Sometimes it is in fact weak hip muscles or stiff ankles that are influencing your knee pain. Home exercises and stretches can aid your recovery and prevent it from returning. If you are interested in hiking more, join a hiking club for the social enjoyment or pick up a brochure on local walks and hikes from Customer Service at Cottonwood Mall. Stay active and be healthy. It’s good for the body, mind and soul.

News Local real estate shows growth This past April was another strong home sales month, which indicates increasing consumer confidence in the local market, according to the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB). Last month’s sales surpassed even the “formidable” ones of April 2012, with a total of 193 homes sold in Chilliwack and surrounding areas. That’s 25 more “sold” signs than in March. CADREB president Jesse Hildebrandt expects the trend to continue. “All indicators are for continued stronger growth in the second half of the year,” he said. Hildebrandt suspects that the currently low interest rates will remain. “Interest rates are expected to stay low

until the end of the year. With a good inventory of listings at various price points and continued low rates, if anyone is in a position to buy, I can’t see why they wouldn’t jump at the opportunity at this time,’” he said. The average sale price of residential homes was $292,811 last month, down $11,000 from the month before and down $6,000 from April 2012. The most common home sold was in the $300,000 to $349,999 range, with the next bracket up being the second most common. No homes sold over $1,000,000, and 20 sold at under $100,000. Twelve non-residential properties, consisting of vacant residential land and commercial properties, sold for an average of $232,911. A total of 472 new residential listings joined the market in April, an

increase of 14 from the same month last year. There are 1,727 active listings, down from 1,815 last year. akonevski@theprogress.com

Sunshine Community Garden looks to cultivate new friends When you sign up for a plot in the Sunshine Community Garden in Chilliwack, it’s way more than just a patch of dirt. You’re joining a community. The second growing season of the Sunshine Community Garden is underway at the garden site on Wells Drive, operated in partnership with Chilliwack Society for Community Living. “We’re a group of volunteers passionate about growing food and building a community around growing food,” says coordinating volunteer Laura Cameron-Delisle. They have about 50 community garden volunteers so far, and are looking for more. Dennis Oesch is an active volunteer, who also tends one of the plots at the Sunshine gardens. “I just like to putter around,” he said. He appreciates being able to grow vegetables and flowers naturally and organically. “I like coming here and giving back to nature,” he says. “It makes me feel better and I can forget about my pain and my problems. It’s much better than TV!” About 60 plots are available to

community members for leasing at $26 per year. As well as several high raised beds and gravel pathways were created for people with mobility issues. Last year the main focus was on creating the Sunshine garden beds and mapping out the plots. This year they’re focusing on more community building and fundraising. They plan to hold community socials, potlucks, workshops and workbees at the garden.

Get ready for a Community Blitz Fundraiser and Barbecue, on Saturday, May 25, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the garden. They’re raising funds to pay for a better water system, bike rack, shelter, picnic tables, benches, wheelbarrows and more. They still need more soil, landscape cloth and gravel to get the season underway. The May 25 event will include Continued: GARDEN/ p16

It’s not hard to vote

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

If the last time B.C. voters went to the polls is any indication, you’re just as likely not to cast a ballot in today’s provincial election as you are to mark your X. In 2009 just 50 per cent of eligible voters in the province turned out at the polls to make their voice heard. In fact, voter turnout has been declining steadily since 1983, when 70 per cent of eligible voters in B.C. exercised their franchise. It’s not like voting is hard work. Short of knocking on your front door and sticking a ballot under your nose, Elections BC has made it increasingly easier and more convenient for residents to vote. Polling stations around the city were open at 8 a.m. this morning, and will remain open until 8 p.m. tonight. Advance polls were open from Wednesday until Saturday – something 6,758 people in the Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope ridings took advantage of up until Friday. It was even possible to vote by mail. Residents who won’t be in their electoral district on voting day can vote in any other riding in the province. And while Elections BC has studied the viability of online voting, there’s no guarantee that would increase voter participation. In Markham, Ontario, where residents have been allowed to vote online in the past three municipal elections, participation didn’t increase, but it also didn’t decline. So really, there’s no excuse not to vote. Editor’s Note: Be sure to log on to www.theprogress.com for elections results from the Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope ridings after the polls close at 8 p.m. ~ Black Press

Society needs to prepare for climate of the future Last week’s hot weather was definitely a record buster. High temperatures weren’t just a degree or two about normal but into the double digits. According to Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada, the record high for May 5 was 31.5 degrees Celsius, 14 degrees above normal and exceeding the previous record of 29.4 C set 60 years ago in 1953. May 6 was also a record breaker at 30.3 C, 12.3 C above normal. Last month we were the warm spot in Canada at 16.1 C on April 16. But across Canada the weather has been severe or extreme in other directions from excessive cold to excessive amounts of snow on the prairies to sudden heat threatening excessive floods. This weather whiplash has become a phenomenon to be reckoned with. “The melting (Arctic) ice is alter-

ing the course of the jet stream which usually meanders around the earth in a fairly narrow band,” said Deborah Harford, research associate with Simon Fraser University. “The warming air over the melting ice is pushing the cold air much further south than usual, which caused the unseasonably cold Margaret temperatures in EVANS Europe and the U.S. this spring. The ice is exceptionally low and it may actually be gone by 2015, so we can expect to see this continue or worsen.” Harford is the executive director of SFU’s Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT), an organization bringing together leaders from around the world to explore

the risks of climate change and identify sustainable ways for nations to adapt. “The weather whiplash phenomenon has us seeing regions (such as Georgia in the U.S. currently) go from extreme drought to extreme floods. The Arctic melt and changing jet stream pattern is contributing to this. It holds weather in one place for longer as the jet stream loops enlarge southwards.” She explained that there are “atmospheric rivers” flowing above our heads as water vapour. They are the result of increased temperatures raising evapo-transpiration levels. For every degree of warming, the atmosphere can hold seven per cent more water vapour. “They hold as much water as 15 Mississippi Rivers or about 60 Fraser Rivers and dump huge rainstorms when they release the moisture, causing flash floods and other damage,” she said.

The world is behind in taking effective action on emissions reduction to help mitigate the accumulating atmospheric carbon causing warming. Harford said we are about to hit the CO2 benchmark of 400 parts per million, putting us on track for 450 ppm in 2025, the point of no return. At this level, climate experts predict global temperatures to rise four to eight degrees, profoundly redefining biodiversity, food production and security, sea levels, and extreme weather events. The April reading was 398.35 ppm as recorded by the Scripps CO2 Program at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. While the Harper government has been frustratingly slow dealing with global warming, there have been some initiatives. “Natural Resources Canada has invested in “Regional Adaptation Collaboratives” (RACs) that match

funding for initiatives that would drive adaptation actions,” said Harford. “B.C. had one hosted by the Fraser Basin Council that addressed water. But this has not had enough impact to really raise awareness and get people engaged.” The provincial government recently produced guidelines for sea level rise, a report that estimated it would cost $9.5 billion to reinforce the Lower Mainland coastal defences, and an initiative looking at climate change and agriculture partly funded by the federal Growing Forward program. Society as we know it is designed for the climate of the past, not for the climate that’s coming. It is imperative that whichever party is elected today must understand the connection between industry initiatives on the ground and the atmosphere above.

Ominous climate milestone

This year a milestone has passed. The atmosphere now has 400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide. This level is higher that at any time since humans have been on the planet and the consequences are frightening. Before our fossil fuel (coal, oil and natural gas) burning, the amount varied from 180 ppm (ice ages, 8-9C cooler than today) to 280 ppm (pleasant interglacial such as we had 50 years ago). The climate science community has pegged 350 ppm as the maximum sustainable safe amount; we need to reduce the amount with the utmost urgency. The full effects of 400 ppm are not completely known, but

enough is known that we can safely say our children will be very angry at us for choosing for this to happen. The carbon dioxide will stay in the air for hundreds of years, warming the earth to higher and higher temperatures during that time. The Alberta bitumen ‘tar’ sands alone contain enough carbon to raise the temperature by 0.3C . A 1C temperature causes something like a 10 per cent drop in global food production. So the Aberta carbon will leave roughly 200 million people without food. In addition BC exports coal and is talking about liquefied natural gas too. What can we do? With all the

discussion of pipeline construction to speed up the burning of the carbon in the bitumen sands, it is important we understand that tomorrow our (grand) children will suffer from the climate that we vote for today. We have a choice; there are plenty of technological solutions to not using fossil fuels, but will need political leadership to implement them. True, coal burning in other countries, such as the US and China, has a still bigger effect, but we can’t influence them until our own house is in order. Ultimately this is about values; what are yours?

WaterWealth report card given an ‘A’ urbanization,pipelines and mining all threaten this invaluable resource. Given the dearth of political leadership on these issues at all levels of government, it is inspiring to see a local, grassroots initia-

Candidates will owe allegiance to their parties While, personally, I shall vote in the forthcoming election, it will be more out of habit than belief in our democratic system.  No matter whom I vote for I shall have had absolutely no say in, unless I am a member of a political party, who the candidates will be.  All of the various parties will have decided who will represent them in the various ridings and will finance their runs for those seats.  As a consequence the candidate will not owe his allegiance

to the voters of the riding, but to the party that provided the cash and support for his or her run.  When the winning candidate goes to Victoria his loyalty must be to the party, as opposed to the voters in the riding.  After all, should the winning candidate wish to run again in any forthcoming election, or be appointed to well paid committees, or continue in office long enough obtain the handsome pension which accrues MLAs, he will

toe the party line and when the leader says, “jump” the MLA will jump; and may not believe it wise to ask when he/she can come down.  I believe such a democracy offers a very effective reason not to vote.   I shall be astonished if this letter gets published since the illusion of our democracy must be maintained at all cost. Colin Genders.

Parkinson’s fund raiser draws strong community support A big thank you to all you wonderful folks who helped to make our recent bake sale at the Minter Country Gardens. In spite of the rainy conditions we were amazed at how many of you kind people took

the time to not only purchase some of the wonderful baked goods we offered for sale, but to donate your hard earned dollars for the prizes. Chilliwack is a wonderful place to live as we encountered wonderful co-operation from Brian

Minter owner of  Minter Country Gardens and his staff as well as Kim and Karen of Aromatica Fine Teas and Soaps and Nancy Macmillan, owner of www.macdesigns.ca who generously donated the beautiful prizes we were able to offer.

The dollars we raised will go to the many research projects backed by the Parkinson’s Society of British Columbia with the hope that someday a cure will be found for Parkinson’s Disease.

Presented by Mt. Cheam Lions Club

The winter weather is gone and so are the Canucks. So its time to get outside and work in the community. Of course if you are a Mount Cheam Lion you don’t need the nice weather to do this as we are constantly working to better the lot of Chilliwack residents. However, with the nicer weather the Lions are gearing up for a number of outdoor events. Our state of the art portable grill starts making its appearance at a number of fundraisers both for our Mount Cheam Club and other charitable organizations. There are a numbers of events throughout the summer where you will see the red shirts of the Mount Cheam Lions cooking up a storm. Lions Club form the largest non-governmental service organization in the world. We believe in helping those in need. We believe that by helping others we also help ourselves. We believe that when people are helped they will in turn (in many cases) pay that help forward. Many people who are in need want to be helped but besides being helped they in turn want to be needed. Our club has a membership of nearly 50 volunteers who spend many hours every week in not only helping those in need but also working on many projects geared to raising funds to continue helping the citizens of Chilliwack who are in need. By the time this goes to press Mother’s Day will have come and gone. And as usual there were a number of activities involving Lions in our area. Mother’s Day is a very special day to me. I hope Mother’s Day Club News brought to you by: was a special day for all of you. Johns Electronics Ltd.

ciary committee voted Thursday to block the idea, at least for this year. Business leaders on boths sides of the border opposed the idea, warning it could create much longer border wait time and hamper trade and commerce. The fee on all vehicles and pedestrians was proposed for further study as a way to generate new revenue for Homeland Security, which has been forced by arbitrary U.S. budget cuts to reduce customs staffing. Bellingham Chamber of Commerce president Ken Oplinger had predicted the new bordercrossing fee would never be implemented, noting similar schemes have been proposed and rejected before. “We were pretty sure this was what the outcome was going to be,” he said, noting there was broad political opposition in the U.S., not just from border communities. He noted the Senate vote merely blocks funding to study the idea for the next fiscal year. “We’ll see what happens in future years,” Oplinger said. “It’s something to keep an eye on but we don’t need to worry about it for right now.” The amount of the fee was never specified, but Canadians who go to the U.S. by air or sea already pay a $5.50 customs fee, usually built into airline ticket prices. The Surrey Board of Trade also welcomed the decision, saying the fees would have been damaging to the economy. While the focus today is on Canadian crossborder shoppers heading south, Oplinger noted Canada could also have lost out if the loonie falls against the U.S. dollar in the coming years. “In 10 years who knows, the Canadian economy could be just as reliant on Americans coming north and not getting them because of the fee as well.”

Grade 9 Vedder Middle School students get some practical application for their paddling skills during class time at Cultus Lake last week. Alina Konevski/ The Progress

Outdoor ed program winning top marks Alina Konevski The Progress

A class of Grade 9 Vedder Middle School students spent a Monday two weeks ago photographing the Sea-to-Sky mountain range in order to identify geological ages that formed its various rock layers. They visited Brandywine Falls in Squamish to see how lava flow rock from Mt. Garibaldi’s eruptions has eroded to create the waterfall. And another day they studied rocks close up at the Britannia Mine Museum. The 27 students are part of Vedder Middle’s inaugural Outdoor Education Academy. Over the past year, they have spent every second day in the program, busy with activities such as hiking, canoeing, skiing, and snowshoeing, to learn about the natural environment. At the end of the year, the academy grants them credits for Grade 9 science, social studies, physical education, and outdoor education. While part of an effort to take learning outside of the classroom,

the program has seen clear benefits to self-confidence and competence among youth. “I’ve seen a lot of students realizing that they can do a lot more, and are a lot better at things than they ever thought they would be,” said teacher Chris Falk, who runs the program with another teacher, Jason Shea. “We have a few people for sure that you can just see that their confidence in themselves, from beginning of year to now, is far more improved.” The students have also become a tight-knit group. “You actually have to get along with people if you’re going to camp with them for three days,” said outdoor ed student Amber Howard. The teachers balance the program by doing more classwork during the winter, when there are fewer outdoor trips. “And also, as often as we can, we’re trying to apply those social studies and those science classes to the things that we’re doing when we’re out there,” said Falk. Some classes count only for

physical and outdoor education, but that knowledge — for example, canoe paddling skills developed on Cultus Lake — allows the students to head on trips to learn about their environment. Student Danyka Van Santen said that she has not fallen behind her peers in the traditional academic program. “We do learn the same amount of stuff, just in different ways,” she said. One major advantage to the program, according to Falk, is being able to disregard the traditional block structure of middle school programming, where teachers have students for set time blocks of about an hour each. That makes it very difficult to organize trips. Falk and Shea have dedicated significant personal time to the program, such as all the extra trips they have made to plan out student activities. “Every trip we’ve done, we’ve made sure we’ve gone and scouted it out beforehand...We’ve gotten very efficient at very fast

hiking to get it done,” said Falk. There were no injuries this year, and the teachers have undergone specialized professional development to be prepared to handle emergency situations. Both have advanced wilderness first aid certifications, Shea completed a swiftwater rescue course, and Falk an avalanche course. Falk expects the time commitment to decrease with more years with the program. The academy system has become popular in Chilliwack, because it allows public schools to charge for academic programming. Five Chilliwack schools offer a total of seven academies, covering baseball, golf, hockey, soccer, and outdoor ed. The Academy system has received criticism for being elitist, and presenting high financial barriers to entry. The program’s price ticket, which includes all transport, equipment rentals, and guides, is set at $800. Not every family can afford that. Falk insists that the outdoor ed program is different, because

it is significantly less expensive than the others, and it is multidisciplinary. “We want everyone to apply. Once we figure out if it’s a good fit for you, we want to work with the parents to make sure we can make that fee as easy as possible,” said Falk, who also spends time looking for funding opportunities. The future plan is to establish bursaries so that students who would especially benefit from the non-traditional outdoor learning environment would not be left out. This includes students who think they would learn better outside of the classroom, who would like to get into better shape, or who would like to try different outdoor activities. The program is fully booked for next year with 30 students, out of the 40 that applied. Students seem thrilled with the program this year. “You get to try new things, and have fun doing it,” said student Amber Howard. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/alinakonevski

Experience Downtown... Sparkling location for Sparkling Ideas Sparking Ideas is celebrating more than two years of creative inspiration. And it’s doing it at a new location on Mill Street, next to Logan’s Home Hardware. For Svetlana Ivleva, it’s the continuation of a dream to bring her love and fascination with beadwork to the community. The support she has received since opening her business on at the former Yale Road location has made her grateful. Now, she’s inviting anyone with an artistic flair to check out her new location, which is bigger, brighter and boasts better parking. Ivleva’s fascination with beadwork started long before she opened Sparkling Ideas in downtown Chilliwack. Even as a little girl, she would snip apart her mother’s necklaces and use the beads to make her own creations, beginning a lifelong fascination with the technique of building individual artwork from a multitude of

interesting pieces. Beads have been a part of human history for thousands of years. They cross cultures and generations, employing different styles, techniques – even holding different significances. What captivates Ivleva are the possibilities – where the sum is truly greater than the parts. Provide the same material to five different people and the outcome will be five totally different works of art. The combinations are endless, she says. Not only can the creations be defined by the kinds of beads that are used, but also the kinds of stitches and techniques that are employed. Says Ivleva, her accent revealing her Russian heritage: “It’s basically a science; how to work with beads.” The finished works can be as diverse as a flower, a broach, or a pendant necklace. Sparking Ideas carries all the material you’ll need to turn your ideas into works of art.

Svetlana Ivleva has moved her bead store, Sparkling Ideas, to 5-9360 Mill St. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

There are bins of brightly coloured beads of every size and description. The shop also carries polished stones, crystals and silver characters that can form the centre piece of each work. It also has the tools, the

wire and the string necessary to bring the piece together. But Ivleva takes her love of beading one step further. She offers classes every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. The classes are free, save for the cost of the

Feeling at home at Harmony Mortgage Buying a home is one of the most important decisions people make. So understanding how to finance that dream is critical to helping turn a hope into reality. Tammy O’Callaghan and Carie Pool have a few ideas that will make it work. They are a team of mortgage specialists who can help prospective homeowners find the right financing to fit their goals, their aspirations and their lifestyle. And, have fun doing it. Harmony Mortgage Group is located in the vibrant Sutton Business Centre in Downtown Chilliwack. O’Callaghan and Pool are mortgage brokers with a simple goal: “Find the lender that’s the best fit for the client.” O’Callaghan has 20 years of experience in the mortgage field. She understands how challenging it

is to find the right financing in today’s market. But that’s where Harmony comes in. “We can save so much time and effort and emotional stress,” she says. What a mortgage broker does, O’Callaghan explains, is research what kind of mortgage products that are available on the market. They have access to all the major banks and financial institutions, meaning they are more likely to find a solution that fits their client’s financial need, whether it’s a first time mortgage, a renewal, or refinancing. Their approach is client focused, she says. It begins with a meeting to understand where that individual wants to go, and how he or she wants to get there. They work for the client, not the financial institutions they deal with.

And, perhaps best of all, their services are free. The atmosphere at Harmony Mor tgage is relaxed, helpful and informative. “It’s really easy to just come in and talk to us,” O’Callaghan says. “We have a couch, and the doctor is in,” she adds with a laugh.

FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS

NEW & OLD

The City's Drinking Water Quality Assurance Program requires the flushing of water mains throughout the community. Flushing of water mains is a key component to maintaining our high level of water quality throughout the distribution system. You may experience changes to your tap water as a result of the water main flushing. These changes could consist of a brief reduction in pressure and/or possible sediment leading to discoloration; none of which are a health concern. These changes to your tap water are temporary, and will dissipate over time.

The Royal Hotel is collecting 105 years worth of stories and experiences, and we want you to share yours! Whatever your story, big or small, photos or videos,

we want to hear about it! You could win a 2-night stay in the Royal jacuzzi suite or other great prizes! Winners will be determined by voting, so get your entries in early and tell your friends to vote often!

To enter, visit at www.theprogress.com/contests

OR drop your handwritten entries, along with contact information to The Royal Hotel. (Please limit your story to 2 written pages or 750 words) Contest runs until June 4, 2013.

For further information or to report extended low pressure problems or discoloration in your water, please contact the Public Works Department at 604.793.2810.

Wanted by the Warriors Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

Chilliwack’s Ryan Bowen is on the Western Hockey League radar as a prospect with the Moose Jaw Warriors. Bowen is home for the summer, training with Paul Nicolls at the Xceed Training Center. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Ryan Bowen was sitting in science class on May 2 when he got the news. He was trying hard to focus on what the teacher was saying. Really he was. Then he saw his phone ring. It was his dad calling with some exciting news. The Moose Jaw Warriors had just selected the Chilliwack kid in the fifth round of the bantam draft. “They contacted me almost right away, and told me they were very happy to have picked me 94th overall,” Bowen said. And Moose Jaw general manager Alan Millar had more to say. “He said the team’s plan is hopefully to have me play as a 16-year-old, and run their power play at 17,” Bowen said. “I hope I can live up to their expectations.” Heady stuff indeed for a 14-year-old. The right winger is back in town now, already working to get ready for training camp.

Bowen will spend next season with the OHA’s midget prep squad. Before that, he’ll be skating at the Male U-16 BC Hockey Provincial camp. The camp includes the top 24 forwards, 14 defencemen and six goalies in the province. It takes place July 10-14 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, giving Bowen plenty to prepare for. “The plan this summer is to concentrate on hockey and train with Paul Nicolls at the Xceed Training Center,” Bowen said. “Paul is the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Chilliwack Chiefs and has trained me since I was nine.” One of the few Chilliwack Minor Hockey products to hit the Western Hockey League radar in recent years, Bowen left the Fraser Valley this season to hone his craft at the Okanagan Hockey Academy. The coaching staff at OHA includes former National Hockey Leaguers Dixon Ward and Mike Needham. Bowen’s dad, Steven, says Needham, a Stanley Cup champion with Pittsburgh in 1992, has been essential to his son’s

development. “Ryan always loved hockey from a very young age, but as a December-born kid he always developed a little later than most of his age group,” Steven said. “Needham had a profound effect on him as a player. He challenged him all year on areas to improve his game, and it all seemed to come together toward the end of the season.” Among the 227 players drafted through 12 rounds, Bowen was the only one with Chilliwack roots. But with CMHA taking positive steps with their coaching and development programs, he hopes he represents the start of a trend. “I think it reflects well on Chilliwack minor hockey and I think it shows that CMHA is going in the right direction,” he said. “Chilliwack has made a lot of great improvements over the last few years, and I hope I’m the first of many more in the future.” Get the full bantam draft results online at whl.ca/prospects

Rugby girls lead the way PCSL women fight fatigue

Female rugby took a big step forward in Chilliwack this spring, with the introduction of a senior girls team at Sardis secondary school. And now, Chilliwack’s Crusader Rugby Club is looking to take it a step farther. The Crusaders hope to enter a U-18 girls team in the BC Rugby Union this fall, with the Sardis girls forming the nucleus. There’s plenty of talent to build around. The first-year Falcons went 5-2, with 215 points

for and just 104 against. Ashley Heisler led the team with 10 tries and Juliana Tuioti collected six. Sierra Hunter kicked converts with help from Sarah Muxlow. Becky Sturm, Tori Kuhn, Makayla Duval, Tyra Phillips and Ashton Goldthorp were all strong performers. “I’m proud of all the girls for the commitment and enthusiasm they showed throughout the season,” said coach Terry Puckey. “I believe

they will be all the better for this experience and we hope to do it all over again next year.” In related rugby news, the Crusaders are inviting all middle and high school players to Yarrow Sportsfield June 8 for the first ever Touch Rugby Festival. The event is planned as a fundraiser, fuelling youth rugby development through the Chilliwack Rugby Society. Get local rugby info online at chilliwackrugby. com.

Lenz siblings dominate meet Brandt Lenz collected two gold medals and one silver from the NorWesters Elementaries track and field meet, held May 4-5 at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium. Competing in the 10-year-old boys division, the Chilliwack Track and Field Club athlete earned gold in long jump, leaping 3.52 metres. He added a first in shot-put with a toss of 6.75m, and placed sec-

ond in high jump, soaring 1.10m. 13-year-old Sienna Lenz collected hardware of her own, earning one gold, one silver and two bronze. She finished first in high jump with a mark of 1.35m. She placed second in shot-put with a toss of 8.38m and third in long jump (4.34m) and the 300m dash (44.90 seconds). A third Lenz, 11-year-

old Marin, placed second in long jump (3.78m) and third in the 200m dash (32.20s). Thir teen-year-old Nikki Gregory earned two podium finishes, with third place showings in the 100 and 200m dashes. Her time in the 100m was 13.57s. Her time in the 200m was 28.20s. 11-year-old Jake Janssens was third in the 600m run with a time of 2:02.36.

Chilliwack’s Pacific Coast Soccer League girls dropped a pair of games in the Okanagan last weekend, falling prey to injuries and fatigue. CFC took on Penticton SC Saturday at King’s Park, taking a 3-1 loss. “We were down 1-0 at the half, but we were pretty much equal with them,” said CFC coach Glenn Wilson. Brittany Roberts tied the game early in the second half with a 25-yard shot that caught the Penticton keeper out of position. The ball bounced off the cross bar and in. After that, fatigue started to set in.

Chilliwack was missing ace defender Adelle Gaudette, a player with a knack for making goal-saving plays. They were also missing midfielder/striker Carmet Devette. Both were out with injuries. Striker Kate Smith was playing hurt, but Wilson was limiting her minutes. When she played, she was a shadow of her normal self. “Then we have a lot of high schoolers on our roster who were playing their fourth or fifth games of the week, and fatigue started to set in after we tied the game up,” Wilson said. “Penticton scored in the 76th minute and added another soon after, and that was that.” The situation wasn’t any better Sunday as Chilliwack took on Kelowna United. Gaudette and Devette still out. Smith still hobbled.

Players still tired. “We knew it was going to be tough heading into Sunday’s game, but the plan was to give it everything they had for 90 minutes and see if they could scrap something out of it,” Wilson said. Late in the first half, with the game still scoreless, the feeling was that if they could just get to the break and recharge the batteries they’d have a chance. But on the very last play of the half, Kelowna scored on a corner kick. “That goal knocked the stuffing out of us,” Wilson said. The locals collected themselves at the break and dominated the second half. But they couldn’t put anything past the Kelowna keeper. “If the game had gone an extra five minutes...” Wilson lamented. The coach had lots of time to think on the long bus ride home.

Though his team is now 0-3 in early-season play, he isn’t discouraged. “We’ve got a lot of new faces and we’re a much younger group this year, but when we’ve got fresh legs we’re equal to teams like Penticton and Kelowna,” he said. “So I do like our chances going forward. We’ve got just under two weeks now before our next game to heal and get everyone back. I think we’ll start to kick on then.” That next game is May 25 as Chilliwack hosts the Fraser Valley Action. Game time will be 2 p.m. at Townsend Park. ● Chilliwack’s PCSL men’s team made the same Okanagan road trip, and had mixed results. The team lost 4-1 to Penticton on Saturday and beat Kelowna 3-1 Sunday. Get more league information online at pcsl.org

Lions pitch in at Grizzlies camp The GW Graham Grizzlies hosted their first annual youth football camp on Saturday and had an outstanding turnout. Almost 200 kids between the ages of 6 and 12 attended the free camp. They were coached by Graham coaches and players through several skills stations and each camper received a t-shirt and water bottle. The camp wrapped up

with a talk from visiting BC Lions Keron Williams and Jabar Westerman, followed by a barbecue. “This camp is about growing football in Chilliwack,” said GW Graham head coach Laurie Smith. “It’s a great team game and there are fantastic opportunities to play here in Chilliwack.” Chilliwack has three organizations serving youths between the

ages of six and 22. GW Graham runs three teams for players in Grades 8 to 12. Chilliwack Minor Football runs teams for players between the ages of 6-18 and the BC Football Conference Valley Huskers provide junior football opportunities for players between the ages of 18-22. “We are very fortunate to have three great football organizations in

The fall season kicks off Aug. 31 in Colton, Oregon and GWG’s first home game is September 27 at Exhibition Stadium.

I have a passion for real estate and gained knowledge by building, buying and selling my own homes in this area. I took this passion and knowledge a step further and became a realtor in 2005. As a realtor I approach clients with an honest, down to earth, trustworthy attitude. This is a major reason why referrals from past clients are the majority of my business!

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to sell your home. You’ve spent hours cleaning and preparing, discarding old clutter, re-arranging that abandoned closet, re-planting your flower garden. You’ve put new paint on the walls, the bathroom is clean and sparkling, and a fresh bouquet of flowers sits on the dining room table. Now comes the tricky part: allowing complete strangers to walk through your home. This is the time when the services of a real estate professional are essential. Although you may be tempted to be present at your open house and Realtor showings, the best advice a real estate professional can offer is to leave, and relax. Visit a friend, grab a cup of coffee and let your real estate agent present your home to its best possible advantage. People are naturally sensitive when they are a guest in someone’s home and will be reluctant to voice their concerns if you are there. An inhibited buyer is not an active buyer! Your Realtor is familiar with your home and is ready to answer any questions an interested party may have without making them feel uncomfortable. They are professionally trained to help potential buyers ask their questions and respond to them with reassurance. In the buyer’s mind your very presence keeps the home “your home” and makes it more difficult for them to visualize the home as theirs. With a clean, airy, open residence, they can more easily imagine how it would feel to be enjoying the house as much as you do. In addition, homeowners selling their house (especially for the first time) often appear a bit nervous, and naturally so. Your innocent defense of the purple paint in the guest room makes

sense to you, but may chill the feet of an interested party. Don’t take other’s people’s preferences personally. Everyone has his or her own taste. What you want is a sale. Moreover, the buyer might interpret your anxiety as a need to sell, which could result in lower bids and counteroffers. The purchase of a home is a formidable undertaking. Most people require a significant amount of time in a house they are seriously considering and may wish to visit again and again. The concern you may experience as a seller is just as real for the buyer. Prospective clients may need the opportunity to scrutinize and analyze your home freely. You must grant them the space to do so. This allows them to overcome their anxiety and to through the purchasing process with a happy and clear mind. People are usually more willing to speak candidly with the real estate agent than they are with the seller directly. You may be able to profit from the observations of others. After a showing, ask your Realtor for a follow-up report. Your Realtor will be able to process the feedback from prospective buyers constructively and let you know if any changes need to be made. Don’t be afraid to hear everything and be open to suggestions. Your Realtor has experience and is trained to support you in finding solutions to those possible “sore thumbs” and help potential buyers get past their stumbling blocks. While a certain invasion of privacy must be endured and some changes may need to made, remember your goal: to sell your home quickly and for the best price possible.

Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

I have spent the past 16 years in the Sales, Marketing, and Advertising field. It is this background that gives me a unique perspective of how a home should be marketed. Are you tired of leaving messages that aren’t being returned? Do you find it annoying when the homes advertised in the newspapers are not as they seem? Wouldn’t it be nice to work with someone who understands your point of view? Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than having satisfied clients whom I have helped to reach their real estate goals. I provide you with the highest degree of professional service excellence and customer satisfaction that is “TOUGH to BEAT.” I am Mike DellaFortuna, and it would be my pleasure to help you.

Progress

RYALL Ann Mary August 1931 - April 2013 Passed away at age 81 on April 30, 2013 in Chilliwack General Hospital. She was born August RYALL 14, 1931 in Montreal where she met and married a young soldier, Everett (Sandy), her husband of 62 years. Ann is survived by her three sisters: Shirley, Joan and Georgina; her husband, Sandy; her four children: Richard (Shelley), Gail (Rick), Sandra (John) and Deborah (Greg); her grandchildren: Adam, Ian (Kate), Thomas, Christen (Craig), Scott (Angela), Megan and Sarah; and five greatgrandchildren. Mom’s legacy is her deep devotion to her family, leaving behind many great memories for family and friends. A strong and feisty woman, she was the family’s rock and defender who was deeply proud of her ‘brood’. Ann loved dancing, camping, reading, gardening, travelling, renovating, decorating and re-decorating her home. She was a generous and welcoming host, loved being around people, enjoyed playing games and rarely missed a chance to cheat at cards — just for the fun of it. The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at Chilliwack General Hospital ICU for their kindness, patience and care. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation in her honour. A graveside service for family and close friends was held on Monday, May 6, 2013.

SEWCHUCK Edward

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and SEWCHUK father, Ed, on May 8, 2013 at the age of 77 years. Ed was born on February 23, 1936 in Winnepegosis, MB. He was predeceased by his parents Anne and Peter J.; brothers: Michael, Melvin and Ernie (Betty). Ed was enlisted in the Canadian Military for 27 years. He served his time with the United Nation Peacekeeping Force, NATO bases in Europe, as well as a number of bases across Canada. Ed enjoyed spending time with his loving wife Rachael, playing cards and “looking for bargains� at different garage sales on the weekends. Ed was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and a dedicated member of the Knights of Columbus, he was a loyal Knight. Ed was very involved in raising money for many charities through meat draws and numerous other functions since 1987. Ed is survived by his wife of 52 years Rachael; his daughter, Margaret; and son, Ken. He was also a proud grandfather to five grandchildren: Johnathan, Sarah, Tyler,

nonite Church followed by a tea where all are welcome to share stories. Rod already knew the career path he was destined for, carpentry, by the age of 18. The pride he took in his work was apparent to all and his reputation exceeded him. He shared his knowledge with family members he brought to the sites, apprenticed many and worked with his daughter Lisa for 10 years. He rode motorcycles, cooked exotic meals, was an avid reader, enjoyed coffee nights with buddies and travelled but nothing brought him more joy than his family. He married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life in 1978 and they welcomed two daughters and a son. These children brought spouses and many friends that Rod embraced as his own. In 2001, Rod officially added “Papa� to his resume, and the job rapidly became busier over the years. Rarely did a weekend go by without grandchildren filling his house with laughter and vying for the best spot on his knee. We know that God has a plan for us and Rod was called home earlier than we expected.

Pages and pages could be written about Rod without doing him justice. He was a private man with many layers. He will be loved and deeply missed by many. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Children’s Hospital in Rod’s name would be greatly appreciated.
