He said in the early part of the campaign, the polling numbers indicated there might provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;a window of opportunityâ&#x20AC;? for an independent but â&#x20AC;&#x153;obviously that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t materialize.â&#x20AC;? Van Dongen said the final election results were surprising, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;these things happen in politics.â&#x20AC;? While he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t analyzed the final outcome, he did theorize that the fear of the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation from the 1990s impacted the final vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the argument, the fear of the 1990s, gained very significant traction and we knew that was out there in our campaign ... â&#x20AC;? Now out of provincial politics, van Dongen said there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot on his immediate schedule, although he will talk with Plecas in the coming days.

In accepting his win in the Abbotsford South riding on Tuesday night, political newcomer Darryl Plecas vowed that he will do everything he can to serve his constituents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will kill myself to be the best servant possible,â&#x20AC;? he said during his victory speech at his campaign office on South Fraser Way. Chants of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dar-ryl! Dar-ryl! Dar-ryl!â&#x20AC;? rang out as Plecas, 61, greeted his supporters after being declared winner of the riding. Plecas, among Abbotsfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three successful Liberal candidates, defeated longtime MLA John van Dongen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; running as an independent for the first time in his 18-year political career â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by a margin of 8,811 (48 per cent) to 5,138 votes (28 per cent). Speaking to reporters afterwards, he acknowledged that his victory was hard-fought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would describe it as going to hell and back six times,â&#x20AC;? he laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a really tough road lots of times, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What am I doing here?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This is tough. This is the single toughest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done.â&#x20AC;? Plecas thanked his campaign team and said the support from Abbotsfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large South Asian community was instrumental in his victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We said right at the beginning that if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to win this, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to win it because of South Asian support.â&#x20AC;?

Authorities are investigating the mystery of what killed thousands of small fish – believed to be three-spined sticklebacks – in a large detention pond in Willband Creek Park. Obvious possibilities – such as contamination – have been ruled out by the B.C. Ministry of Environment, and, as of Wednesday morning, the die-off was still a mystery. The kill was discovered on Sunday by Abbotsford resident Gary Stewart, who walks the park – located at Highway 11 and Bateman Road – an average of three times a week. Stewart often walks along the park’s three large stormwater detention ponds to admire the ducks, geese, hawks, eagles and other wildlife that gather there. On Sunday afternoon, he spotted an area where a few dozen dead fish had pooled. As Stewart followed the edge of the pond, he realized there were thousands. He contacted the ministry of environment as soon as he arrived home. “I was worried about what could have killed all those fish,” he said. Ministry spokesman David Karn said an environmental emergency response officer went to Willband Creek Park on Sunday afternoon. Initial testing showed normal levels of pH and dissolved oxygen, and the water temperature was slightly higher than normal, likely due to the previous hot spell. “There was no obvious source of contamina-

tion and no physical sign that the fish were exposed to a chemical contaminant,” Karn said. He said the ministry is working with Environment Canada and the City of Abbotsford to determine the next steps. Volunteers with the Ravine Park Salmon Enhancement Society (RPSES) were also notified of the incident. It has been confirmed the dead fish were not related to the annual Mother’s Day release of 10,000 coho salmon fry into the nearby Stoney Creek. But concerns about the habitat sent volunteers to Willband Creek Park on Monday afternoon to see the dead fish for themselves. Doug Gosling, a member of the Stoney Creek Salmon Stalkers, which is affiliated with RPSES, said they believe the small fish are three-spined stickleback. No other fish appeared to have been impacted. Two large detention ponds were constructed at the site in 1998 to help ease flooding in the area during rainstorms. Two hydraulic control structures allow water to flow between the ponds and Willband Creek. Tanya Bettles, environmental coordinator with the city, said the gate valves are opened in mid-May and closed in late September or early October to allow the passage of fish between the creek and ponds during the summer. A new pond was constructed last year and was connected to the existing ponds via an open channel. That pond was designed to be dry during summer and filled with floodwater during winter storms.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK Are you satisfied with the outcome of the provincial election?

Elderly drivers Old people should not drive. Tara Nisenboym The woman in the car is my grandmother and this accident has put her on her death bed!. You don’t know anything about her or anything about the accident, so please avoid using sweeping statements. Further, it isn’t enough to say elderly people should not drive, but rather elderly people should not have to drive. You clearly do not understand the infrastructure of Abbotsford if you believe an elderly person can get along fine without a car. Walking is out of the question, as the city is way too spread out and the sidewalks are pathetic. Public transit is insufficient and unreliable and taxis are expensive. Elderly people in Abbotsford who want to be independent and are able to (as my grandmother was) have no other alternatives. You’re blaming individuals while ignoring the reality of the circumstance.

Things you can’t say during elections Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views Another election campaign has come and gone, with the ritual posturing of political parties and most news media searching for anything they can portray as a conflict. Now comes the time to wonder why not enough people cared, or informed themselves about the real problems of running this $40-billion corporation called the B.C. government. Why would they, when the whole thing is presented as a combination of beauty contest and sports event, with endless discussion of polls and “attack ads” and who’s ahead and what’s the score? Again we have seen the truth of former prime minister Kim Campbell’s observation that elections are no time to talk about serious issues. Indeed, there are some things you can’t speak of at all.

Everybody’s in favour of “afford-

able housing,” for instance. What they won’t admit is that this is code for subsidized housing, because then they would have to talk about how much the subsidy is, and who has to pay for it. Good grief, that might raise the question of whether the state should be taking money away from some people and giving it to others so they can live where they otherwise couldn’t afford to live. We even have rules preventing the media from reporting polls on election day. People might be influenced by this, you see. If you tell them Party X is far ahead, they might stay home and mow the lawn instead. If you tell them someone is making a comeback, they might change their vote because they want to be on the winning side, or the one that has “momentum.” Just like any other sport. The news media are steadily losing influence with the public. There are many factors involved, including the vast array of information sources that are available at most people’s fingertips. Another factor is treating the public like they’re idiots. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Students from Colleen and Gordie Howe Middle School participated in a Run for Water mini run last week.

School mini-run More than $3,000 raised

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

About 450 students and teachers took to the streets Friday afternoon to support the annual Run For Water. Colleen and Gordie Howe Middle School held its third annual Mini Run For Water event which saw students walk, jog or run a three-kilometre route. The event was part of a month-long fundraising drive that has seen students of the school raise over $3,000 to support the main Run For Water event which helps build clean water projects in remote and desolate areas of Ethiopia. Students held a pajama day, a bake sale, raffles and other events to collect money. Numerous schools in Abbotsford are among others in the Lower Mainland holding mini runs and assemblies this month and last as they raise funds for Ethiopian water projects. The annual Envision Financial Run for Water takes place on Sunday, May 26 at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford. It offers four runs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a marathon, half marathon,

10K and 5K. Each begin at staggered start times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7 a.m., 8 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. To register for the Run for Water or for more information, visit abbotsford.runforwater.ca.

cident, while Gillian and her four children, who were also in the vehicle, survived the crash. Besides dealing with the physical trauma – two of her children were in critical care – the family’s emotional journey was just beginning. “In the blink of an eye, I went from being a wife homeschooling her kids to being a single mother with no income and four children who were still dealing with serious injuries,” Gillian said. “I came home after leaving the hospital and felt instantly lonely. The pressure of caring for four children during such a hard time is extreme.” She looked for resources for her children, but found few. An assistant at a medical facility suggested she call AHS. “I had assumed hospice was just for elderly or dying people, but I was surprised and relieved

to find out that they had programs to support all of us. Once I connected with the hospice, things began to really open up for the kids,” Gillian said. AHS cares for dying people as young as 19, but also has extensive grief support services. Hospice staff worked with Gillian and each of her four children, and continue to do so. Gillian said that, after the accident, her youngest son suffered severe panic and was “pretty much paralyzed” by anxiety attacks. “Abbotsford Hospice connected him with a play therapist, and it made a huge difference. She made such a connection with him and walked him through the grief. It was a life-changing resource for him.” For more information about the program or other AHS programs, or to donate to the society, call 604-852-2456.

A high streamflow advisory means river levels are expected to rise rapidly, and although minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible, no major flooding is expected.

“TEST DRIVE”

The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford has a new Children’s Discovery Centre in the Great Hall. This is a timely, playful and “edu-taining” addition for families with young children and students that come to explore The Reach’s exhibitions and programs at 32388 Veterans Way. “It’s a friendly creative space, where kids can engage with parents or caregivers in hands-on educational activity kits connected to current exhibitions and to artefacts from 1900-1960,” explained Kris Foulds, collections manager at The Reach. “This is about putting their imagination and hands to work on how a vintage camera works or how to document their family history with the Junior Genealogist kit.” The Children’s Discovery Centre is supported by Prospera Credit Union who for the past two years has sponsored the Sunday Family Arts Program at The Reach.

New 236 area code Some new phone customers in B.C. may be issued a number with the province’s new 236 area code starting June 1. The new area code covers the entire province and was approved by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to ensure residents and businesses have enough phone numbers. Customers who get a new phone number may be able to choose from existing 604, 778 or

250 area codes where enough of those numbers exist. If those options aren’t available a 236 number will be issued. Geographic boundaries that govern long-distance calling are not affected. Plans for the new area code were announced in 2011 in response to the explosive growth in wireless device use, depleting the supply of available phone numbers within B.C.’s existing area codes.

Local performers team up Carmen ... And Other Works showcased on June 1 Take a passionate dash of Carmen by Bizet, blend in the fun-loving resonance of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra (AYO) strings, season with lots of rhythmic and timely percussion, and sprinkle with graceful yet powerful movements of the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance and you have the delicious makings of Carmen ... And Other Works. Presented by Calvin Dyck and the AYO, the performance will take place at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium on June 1 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. This is Carmen with all the favourite, well-loved tunes garnished in a way Bizet would never have imagined. “The Carmen Suite, by living Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin, is such an inspiring and tongue-in-cheek rendition of Bizet’s opera Carmen,” said Dyck, artistic director and conductor of the AYO. “It’s a refreshing look at the opera, an ironic twist, completely humorous, full of subtlety and unexpected turns on very familiar music. I performed it with the Vancouver Island Symphony a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so much that I was inspired to program it for the AYO here in Abbotsford.” Audiences have come to know, from 12 years of Songs Strings & Steps shows, that Dyck loves a challenge, originality, creativity, adventure and surprises. “This year, instead of doing a Songs Strings & Steps production, the AYO went on tour to Vancouver Island. The highlight was a performance with the Vancouver Island Symphony. And now, before getting ready to play in the Canada Day Parade, we want to give the kids with the AYO the challenge of this wonderful piece of music while offering

life. Revel’s Saskatoon Blades are playing host to the M a s t e r C a r d Memorial Cup, major junior hockey’s storied championship tournament, beginning this Friday and wrapping up on Sunday, May 26. Revel, a 17-yearold rookie centre from Abbotsford, is one of the Blades’ most promising youngsters, and he’s thrilled at the opportunity to compete for a title. “It’s been really exciting, especially this week,” Revel told The News via cellphone. “There’s been a lot of excitement around the rink. “I’m sure it will be a good, loud crowd, and we’ll have some good fan support behind us.” As recently as last fall, Revel wasn’t entirely convinced that major junior hockey was the right road for him. He’d been passed over in the 2011 Western Hockey League bantam draft,  partially because he also happened to be an outstanding baseball prospect. But he drew rave reviews in 2011-12 with the Fraser Valley Bruins of the B.C. Major Midget League, pacing the squad in scoring with 25 goals and 51 points in 40 games, and the Blades added him to their protected player list. Even so, Revel initially cast his lot with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the B.C. Hockey League (junior A), and was all set to traverse the so-called “college route” and work towards an NCAA scholarship. But the Blades were persistent in their recruitment, and they dangled a carrot that no other junior franchise could boast – an automatic Memorial Cup berth by virtue of their host status. After two games with the Chiefs, Revel departed for Saskatoon. Continued on A25

Molleken has helped refine Revel’s defensive game

From A24

“For a while there, I was looking at the college route, and that’s a very intriguing route too,” acknowledged Revel, who posted seven goals and 12 assists in 61 regular season games with the Blades. “But I think in the end, I wanted to play the best hockey possible, and that was here in Saskatoon playing in the WHL. “I think even after the Memorial Cup, the league will challenge me more than junior A will and make me the best hockey player I can be.” If pressure makes diamonds, Revel’s experience with the Blades this season should be immensely valuable as he proceeds in his hockey career. Memorial Cup hosting duties bring an extra layer of scrutiny, and for the Blades, that included being the subject of a Sportsnet documentary series which took a behindthe-scenes look at the Western Hockey League franchise. Starring on TV is one thing, but the Saskatoon squad experienced the double-edged nature of the hype after being stunningly swept in the first round of the WHL playoffs by the Medicine Hat Tigers. The Blades had been seeded No. 2 in the Eastern Conference, while the Tigers were No. 7. While the other three Memorial Cup participants –  the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks, the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, and the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League – had to earn their way in by winning their respective leagues, Saskatoon has sat idle for nearly two months. That’s led to criticism of the tourney format, and the suggestion that the Blades don’t belong. “We had lots of criticism through the media, lots of guys blaming different people on our team,” noted Revel, a product of Abbotsford Minor Hockey and

we’re capable of. “It’s been 52 days or something like that since we played. We might be a little bit rusty off the start, but we have to get over that quick and

the Yale Secondary hockey academy. “But we know what we have to do in the Memorial Cup, and that’s come out and show everybody what we can do and what

get back into that playing mindset.” For skilled young offensive-minded players, tightening things up in the defensive zone is typically the biggest

area for improvement, and Revel has been no exception in that regard. “The biggest difference from midget hockey to junior hockey is the abil-

ity to play against the other team’s top forwards and adjust defensively,” he said, reflecting on his first WHL campaign. “[Blades coach Lorne Molleken] challeng-

TEAM

Win $1,000 to Sevenoaks Shopping Centre Those are just a few rewards that 20 local University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) students are competing for with the return of the biggest reality contest from The Abbotsford News(formerly the Intern.) One student will win the grand prize of $5,000 cash, the title of Freshman of the Year and a summer internship with the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) marketing department. “The Freshman provides students with real life experience within an organization of great significance in the city”, said Andrew Franklin, Publisher of The News. And like most great reality contests, you’re the boss.

THE CHALLENGE: Twenty UFV students will be divided into 10 teams. Each team is associated with a corporate partner in the community. One of their main tasks is to create a marketing plan for their sponsor business. They will also create a video and a full-page advertisement that will be published in The Abbotsford News Daily. All of the team projects can be viewed online at abbynews.com/contests. Teams have also been paired with a local charity and will do their best to

raise dollars and exposure - making a positive change in our community. The objective is to be the last team and finally the last individual in the running.

individual pitch as to why he or she should be the Freshman of the Year. There, the winner will be announced and presented with the prize.

THE ELIMINATION:

FACEBOOK:

Starting today, readers will have the daily opportunity to fi re two teams based on a list of questions and answers completed by the competitors, marketing plan as well as their full-page advertisement and their video. Follow your favorite teams via various social media sites that the teams choose to utilize! Votes can be entered five times a day, per IP address, at abbynews. com. (Click on the contest link on our home page.) However, every contestant has immunity for the first four weeks. The News will track the weekly votes and announce them via Twitter every Tuesday at 8 a.m. at twitter.com/abbynews. On Monday, June 11th there will be a mass elimination of seven teams. Voting for the remaining three teams will continue until Monday, June 18.

Each contestant will have their own Facebook page, accessible by visiting The Abbotsford News Facebook site at facebook.com/ myabbynews. From there, voters can link to each competitor’s page or link to The Freshman fan page. Keep an eye out for other platforms used by Freshman candidates to win votes.

It was voted best news media promotion in North America, and now Abbotsford’s biggest marketing competition, The Intern, has undergone a facelift.

said Andrew Franklin, Publisher of the Abbotsford News. “Each team will be given $100 as a base to earn as much money and exposure as possible for their charity.”

Introducing the new kid in town The Freshman.

The elimination program is determined through a voting system, with a judging panel for the finale at Finnegan’s Pub. Mark Evered, President and Vice-chancellor of the University of the Fraser Valley, participated in the judging process.

Based on the reality show, “The Apprentice,” the idea is to provide students from the University of the Fraser Valley (including International students) who are primarily studying business or marketing, with the opportunity to put their education to practice and win the ultimate internship.

TO VOTE: ABBYNEWS.COM/CONTESTS

Twenty students in teams of two will be assigned to a local participating sponsor business with the chance to gain real life experience over the course of the five-week program. The students will produce a marketing plan for their partnered business using a variety of strategies. “This year we are also incorporating charities,”

“It’s a showcase for UFV students to put their knowledge to work and gain valuable experience while helping local non-profit groups,” says Evered. “We are proud to partner with the Abbotsford News on this innovative contest, and give heartfelt thanks to the participating charitable organizations, as well as AESC for making this possible.” General Manager of The Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre, Jason Blumenfeld, is pleased to offer the unique opportunity to students who strive to get their foot in the door.

“We want the intern to care about what they are doing, and feel a part of the team,” explains Blumenfeld. “We’re looking forward to seeing the competition take place, and it’s always exciting to get someone new involved because every day is something different.” In addition to the charities, The Freshman will give students the opportunity to market themselves to the community and document their journey using the blog Storify and abbynews.com. “A number of past competitors have great marketing jobs now through contacts they made in this contest.” explained Andrew Franklin. So whether you are hired or fired, it’s time for The Freshman to earn stripes as the new kid on the block. “This is a contest, so we want somebody who will pull out all the stops, and want to win right from the beginning,” says Franklin.

WINNERS

They’re hired! Laura Ullock, winner 2011 Since winning the Intern competition, I have used the experiences gained through working with the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Center Marketing department towards assisting with the marketing of Abbotsford-based online company BatteryCanada. com. I feel more confident in the

career-related skills I have to offer an employer and know that my true passion lies in the path of this industry. Currently, I can be found from time-totime behind the Guest Services desk at alternating Abbotsford Heat Hockey games and concerts held at the AESC. The highlight of this position is how enjoyable it is to view the back-

stage excitement and planning that goes into all of their events along with the pride that each of their staff members hold in executing a successful show. In the end, this competition has prepared me for a series of lifetime occurrences and I hope that the new contestants take advantage of all that the Freshmen has to offer. Good Luck!

Lindsay Meloshinsky, winner 2010 After the internship, I continued with full time classes at the University of the Fraser Valley. I will be graduating from my degree in psychology and a minor in kinesiology in December 2013. I also travelled to Australia for a semester abroad. I had a wonderful time travelling around Australia, and also got to visit New Zealand. I am now currently working as a personal trainer with Fitness on

the Go. After I graduate I plan to do some more travelling, hopefully in Africa. I then plan to get my masters in Clinical Psychology. My overall goal is to work with eating disorder patients, specializing in sports. There continues to be a problem with young females (and males) that suffer with anorexia who are in aesthetic sports, like dance, gymnastics and figure skating. I also plan to stay a personal trainer for the rest of my life. Fitness is very import-

ant to my life and I plan to continue with that career as well. Being The Intern changed my life for the better. I learned that I did not want to pursue marketing, but with that being said I am so glad that I got to learn so much about business, because everything you do with your career, you need knowledge about business. I wish all of the contestants the best of luck. Work hard, have fun and be willing to learn new things.

Between the vines with Kathleen Rake

Wallet-friendly Italian red wine

Versatile and packed with f lavour We poured a cheerful, full-of-flavour Italian red wine the other night—2010 Frescobaldi Rèmole Toscana IGT, comprised of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from Tuscany, the place famous for Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino.

NAME> Kristen AGE> 20 STUDYING> Child

Ringing in at $14.99, this wine has a great quality-price ratio (QPR). Rèmole (pronounced Reh-moe-leh, according to the label) has more layers than I’d expect in an Italian wine at this price point. I found bright, juicy red fruit, dark berries, black pepper and licorice on both the nose and palate. There was even a smoky element, despite the wine being aged in stainless steel and bottle only— no oak. The lively acidity, earthiness and hint of minerality worked together to bring just a little more to this wellbalanced and nicely structured red wine.

The wine performed particularly well alongside our pasta puttanesca, with its capers, olives, anchovies and little kick

from the red pepper flakes. Reach for it on pizza night or to pour when you’re serving charcuterie. And, since it is backyard-cooking season, try it with your grilled chicken, pork or marinated beef flank steak. I recommend, however, you choose something else to pour if you want a wine with lots of backbone and staying power to go along with your grilledrare beef or lamb. This is a wine I’d be happy to serve to my guests or take with me to a casual dinner party. I’ll definitely buy more.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time I was in high school, I was going in with my older sister after school to help clean and eventually make puff pastry for the next day,â&#x20AC;? he said. In Abbotsford, Prins is known for his giving nature, having donated bread on a daily basis to the local food bank for many years.

Hank Prins, the owner of the Old Towne Bakery, has decided to move on to another career. Prins has operated Old Towne Bakery for several years, after previously running the Willowbrook Bakery in Langley. He has been in the bakery business since 1967, when his dad bought the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first location. Prins and his siblings took turns helping out.

Having obtained his master of arts degree in leadership, Prins is planning to put it to good use in either the non-profit field or with a company. To do that, he has to leave baking behind.

Dueck said she is acquiring the location on West Railway Street to centralize baking, which will enable her to expand her market and reduce labour costs. She will continue to operate Tracycakes Bakery Cafe on Montrose

Massey, by Chef Jeff 62 restaurant Summer is almost here! Once the sun hits, I can’t help but start thinking about fresh fish and seafood. Fish and shellfish are some of my favourite things to prepare and feature at restaurant 62. I know that the chefs on TV always say “Get to know your fishmonger for the best in quality and freshness...” but I don’t recall the last time I saw a real fishmonger here in the Fraser Valley. Here are some of suggestions that hopefully will help you find and enjoy the best that the season has to offer. Choose locally caught fish and shellfish. Pacific Halibut, Albacore Tuna, Ling Cod, Sole and Rockfish along with Dungeness crab, mussels, clams, scallops and oysters are caught or harvested on our coast. These are all great choices because of the very short distances that they have to travel to market.

Fishy Business Look for products that are Oceanwise or Seawise Certified. These items are harvested or farmed in sustainable, responsible ways which cause little or no environmental damage and have few, if any, by-catch problems (think tuna and dolphins).

When buying frozen seafood, choose items that are FAS or “Frozen at Sea”. This process ensures that the items are frozen very quickly in large commercial units and often are dipped in water and flash frozen a few times to build a hard shell to essentially protect the filets from damage while being handled. Quick freezing ensures little cellular damage to fish and produces a moist filet when cooking. When shopping locally, find shellfish that are kept alive in clean running water. Ask attendants

questions, don’t be shy. Find out when they received the shellfish, maybe find out when their next shipment is. If you can plan ahead, ask them to special order products in for you. If you find a store that has live fish, there is a very good chance that they can also bring in other products that you may not see on the shelves. If you order larger quantities and whole fish, they most likely will be able to give you a price break as well, or even wholesale pricing. A great way to make this happen is to use the buddy system! Order large volumes and share with other interested parties. Hopefully this helps. Enjoy the freshness this summer and be thankful that we are so lucky to have so many great fresh products in our backyard.

The Envision Financial Run for Water Mini Run

Providing Fun and Experiential Learning to over 9,000 Students this Spring by Michelle Watrin Official race clock. Decorative event flags. Prizes. The mascot Drip. Participation ribbons. Music. Cow bells. A reason for staff and students to get out of the classroom and run, jog or walk together. Tie these items all together and you have a very festive Envision Financial Run for Water Mini Run. These popular events are occurring this spring at over 25 schools with over 9000 students participating. Many schools participate as a practice session for those students running the 5K or 10K in the official race on May 26, school liaison Betty Baerg explains. “On another level, these school-based

runs provide students an opportunity to exert personal effort while thinking of the young girls in Southern Ethiopia who are working so hard every day to bring water to their families. Many students have also taken the challenge to carry heavy water jugs while covering the set distance. This has proven to be a powerful learning experience for them, as they struggle to carry the weight a relatively short distance.” Joann Nield, fifth grade teacher at Dave Kandal, has been in charge of her elementary running club for years. Every May she brings many of the

students to the Envision Financial Run for Water to run the 5 kilometre fun run. This is the first year her school has hosted its own mini run. “We will be doing this every year from now on,” she shares with a smile while ringing a cow bell to students running by. Kindergarten to fifth grade students at her school ran a 1 kilometre loop encircling the campus for 30 minutes at their mini run. “It is just so much fun for the kids and such a good lesson for them.” “It has become the fabric in many schools in Abbotsford,” Colleen and Gordie Howe Vice Principal Jasbir

Singh explains. “When schools plan their year in the Fall, teachers say the month of May is the Run for Water month. It is a great communitybuilding activity for the entire school to get involved in. Students feel empowered to be making a difference through running and raising money for the cause.” For more information on the Envision Financial Run for Water that will be hosting approximately 4,800 runners in a 5K, 10K, half and full marathon on May 26th, please go to www.runfor water.ca.

Handy shortcuts to make meal time easier The benefits of home cooking are well known. Cooking at home allows you to control the ingredients you use, which often makes for a more nutritious meal. But what if you have a demanding schedule with little time for gourmet cooking? Thankfully, a busy schedule does not mean you have to forgo cooking at home. Instead, simply employ a few shortcuts to help prepare delicious meals quickly and easily. Embrace convenience items One of the misconceptions about home cooking is that everything has to be made from scratch to qualify as real cooking. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Although picking up a frozen pizza and tossing it in the oven may stretch the definition of cooking, that doesn’t mean you cannot rely on a few convenience items to take some of the work out of meal preparation. For example, if you want to prepare a quiche, you may be off-put by the work involved in preparing a base crust. Using a pre-made pie shell or refrigerated pie dough can cut a lot

of time off of your quiche creation but still yield a tasty finished product. A marriage of fresh and convenience ingredients can make it easier to prepare more home-cooked meals. Plan ahead Nothing can waste more time than running through meal ideas in your head at the last minute or discovering you have to run to the store because you’re missing a key ingredient. Instead of playing the “what are we going to have for dinner” game every night, which often leads to ordering takeout, spend some time planning your weekly menu. This way you can do the bulk of your shopping in one trip and know exactly what to defrost or have available for that day. There are a number of Web sites and even magazines that offer suggested meal scheduling ideas if you need a little inspiration. Double-up recipes Create larger meals that can be wrapped up and served again later in the week. Some foods like roasted chicken or pot roast can be turned into completely new

little risk for an accident when leaving the slow cooker unattended. Use it to make soups, stews, casseroles, sauces, and even shredded meats for Sloppy Joe’s or pulled-pork sandwiches.

meals with a few additional ingredients. Transform leftover chicken into a pot pie and serve extra slices of roast beef “open-face” with gravy and wheat bread for a fast lunch or dinner another day. If you’re spending time cooking, it shouldn’t take much more effort to double or triple a recipe to ensure you have extra available for a night when you might need to pop leftovers in the microwave.

Serve breakfast for dinner On nights when you need a fast meal and may not have too many ingredients in the refrigerator, serving eggs, pancakes or waffles for dinner can make for an easy, tasty meal. Eggs can be enhanced with leftover vegetables for a veggie omelette, while Belgian waffles can be spiced up with bits of sausage and pepper in the batter. Picky eaters who are more inclined to gobbleup pancakes than enjoy a good steak may enjoy breakfast for dinner more than a traditional meal at the end of the day.

Embrace the slow cooker A slow cooker can be a busy cook’s best asset in the kitchen. Slow cookers cook foods over a very low heat and can be programmed or set to turn on at a specific time and cook while you’re out running errands or at work. Because it draws a small amount of power, there is

WHAT? Running 5K, 10K, half marathon the week of the Run for Water, the ultramarathon (56 kilometres) on May 25, and the marathon on May 26; 136 K in one week.

“Because I can. Last year after the ultra I realized the only limitations we have are the ones that are in our minds. The Run for Water weekend is just one way to push beyond those limitations. It is a means to bring water to thousands of people who need it. The fundraising can scare people, but I see it just as I do my running; limitations are only mental!”
