There’s No Place Like Home

Town is ready to party By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Pastor Mike Dauncey and Acts of Kindness supporters give Cathy, Ian and Jamie Dunn their first look at their transformed home, Monday, May 20.

Extreme ‘acts of kindness’ transforms moldy house By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Cathy Dunn and her sons were overwhelmed by the transformation of their older bungalow in just 14 days. The Aldergrove residence had a leaky roof which had resulted in extensive black mold on interior walls, and Dunn was considering selling it as a teardown and moving elsewhere. However, two friends had nominated her for this year’s Extreme Home Repair and Dunn was chosen for this year’s project. Over the past two weeks, while Dunn and sons Ian and Jamie were given a suite at a hotel,

more than 200 volunteers and 120 donors provided the labour and materials for a complete makeover of the home. Volunteers worked up to 12 hour days, six days a week, to accomplish the major transformation. The house was gutted and new roofing and interior and exterior walls were built. The yard had a new retaining wall and landscaping installed. The furnishings and fixtures were even replaced. On Monday, the Dunn family returned to their home where they were greeted by hundreds of well-wishers. Then as the crowd chanted, “Move that bus” they got their first

glimpse of their renovated home. They also received a grand tour with the team from Acts of Kindness, which orchestrated the home transformation. Acts of Kindness is an outreach program of the Aldergrove Seventh-day Adventist Church. Their pastor, Mike Dauncey said this year’s project, their eleventh in the past ten years, was their most ambitious one yet. The value of the work likely exceeded $200,000. “We felt you were the one,” he told Dunn when she arrived, to cheers from the crowd. “This house was needing help.” “We were looking at selling, even though we would

The exterior and interior of the Dunn family’s Aldergrove home has been transformed, thanks to volunteers and donors. Video at www.aldergrovestar.com not have got much for it,” said Dunn. “We would have had to move out of Aldergrove (to afford a

replacement home) …we love this community very much and now we can stay a lot longer.”

The second annual Aldergrove Firefit Festival is set for this weekend, May 2526, in downtown Aldergrove, starting with the Saturday Parade at 10 a.m. The Parade will run along Fraser Highway, from 270 Street to 273 Street, and the highway will be closed to normal traffic for that hour. Detours will be marked for motorists. Saturday’s opening ceremonies of the Pacific Regional FireFit event commence at 12:30 p.m. at Philip Jackman Park (32 Avenue and 271 Street). FireFit is an exciting, action-packed competition for firemen, with its events based on firefighting tasks commonly performed in emergency situations. More than 100 fire fighters from across the west coast have signed on to compete. There is also lots of free entertainment and a variety of food vendors for families on both days, plus a dance for adults on Saturday evening. Sunday’s events include a morning Soap Box Derby for ages five to 13 years, a Crazy Wheels Race for adults, and more FireFit tasks to determine the Pacific Regional FireFit champion. The Soap Box Derby begins at 10 a.m. while the Crazy Wheels Race begins at noon. Both events will be held on 271 Street, between Fraser Highway and 32 Avenue, and this section of road will be closed to normal traffic during the competitions. The Aldergrove FireFit Festival promotes businesses in downtown Aldergrove and the Aldergrove Fair Days in July. The parade was previously held in July as the start to the Aldergrove Fair Days, but has now been moved to the May FireFit Festival.

Temporary road closure ordered for 252A Crescent Another crack in the road surfaces between 72 Avenue and 73 Avenue By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star

An Aldergrove road has been shut down for the second time in five years because of ominous cracks. A section of 252A Crescent between 72 Avenue and  73 Avenue was closed to traffic on May 2 after several deep cracks were spotted on the shoulder of the road, raising concern about a possible collapse. “It’s a public safety issue,” Ramin Seifi, Engineering general manager told the May 13 Langley Township council meeting. A memo to council from engineering staff said the cracking “could be attributable to movement of underlying soil and, in particular, indication of possible soil instability in areas of

relatively steep embankment.” After a drill rig was brought in to make test holes to analyze slope stability, geotechnical consultants said the eastbound section of the road could be reopened to just one lane of traffic, with speed and weight restrictions. Engineering staff advised the affected section of the road will be monitored on a regular basis and warned it could be completely closed again, should conditions warrant.   The same stretch of of the 60-yearold road suffered similar cracking in 2008. It had to be closed for three months while the road was rebuilt and a retaining wall installed. “It cost a lot of money,” Seifi said.

Chicks an ‘eggcellent’ learning experience Aldergrove Star

The fuzzy feathers tickled and the wobbly feet felt funny on their little hands, but children at Kids Incorporated Licensed Preschool in the Walnut Grove Community Centre were thrilled to hold brand new baby chicks after they hatched in their classroom in early May. The three and fouryear-olds welcomed the tiny creatures to the world this spring after incubating eggs with Grade Eh Egg Farm’s new hatching program for 21 days. “Caring for the eggs, seeing the chicks emerge, and watching them grow has been an incredible experience for the children,” said Township of Langley lead licensed preschool instructor Danica Scott. “They went from keeping the eggs warm and turning them each day to holding live baby chicks. They were so excited and this is such a fun way to teach them about caring for animals and the cycle of life.” The chick hatching

is one of many activities offered by Township of Langley licensed preschools, which provide play-based learning that helps children grow physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. “Each child is unique and we believe they have their own special personality, style, and potential. We encourage their development through guidance and support,” said Scott. Arts and crafts, reading, music, play time, and outdoor activities are provided to children aged three and four at Kids Incorporated, as well as through Little Wise Guys at the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre and Wee Willow Bees at the Willoughby Community Centre. All three Township preschools are currently accepting registration for next September. For more information or to schedule a viewing, call Kids Inc. at 604-8820408, Little Wise Guys at 604-533-6170, or Wee Willow Bees at 604-4558821.

Walk a dog for Dog Guides Aldergrove Star

Anyone in Aldergrove can walk a dog, but it takes a special kind of dog to help a person walk. Dog Guides enable many of the millions of Canadians with disabilities to live safely and independently. By participating in the Aldergrove Purina Walk for Dog Guides on May 26, you can help provide Dog Guides at no cost. The five kilometre walk is taking place at Philip Jackman Park and begins at 12 noon. There is no registration fee and 100 per cent of funds raised will go towards training and placing Dog Guides. Since 1983, Lions Foundation of Canada has provided specially trained Dog Guides at no cost to people of all ages from coast to coast. Each Dog Guide costs approximately $20,000 to raise and train yet they are provided at no cost to qualified applicants.

BC Press Council

The Aldergrove Star is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2. For information: phone 888-687-2213

VICTORIA – One benefit of the surprising fourth term for the B.C. Liberal Party is that the provincial government won’t be subjected to another big, expensive ideological remake. Taxpayers are spared a bill of millions in severance pay for deputy ministers and other senior staff who would be purged in large numbers in the left-right lurch that has defined B.C. politics for a generation. BC Ferries will continue as an arms-length operation, with ferry commissioner Gord Macatee in charge of service levels as well as fare caps. The service rationalization that the government set out in the past year will continue. The NDP platform vowed to “position BC Ferries as an integral part of B.C.’s transportation infrastructure.” Freely translated, that means “suck BC Ferries back into government,” as one of their strident supporters likes to say. That would conceal the growth of the subsidy and facilitate the kind of political and union interference that resulted in the current structure. There will be no $10 million rehash of the BC Rail sale and subsequent seven-year trial, to enrich elite lawyers once again. The NDP promised an inquiry for strictly political reasons, to drag their opponents through the scandal one more time. It was not a

Polarized politics a costly system

prelude to “nationalizing” the province’s train service, dream scenarios of the NDP provincial council notwithstanding. Costly legal confrontations over development projects have been avoided. The Jumbo Glacier Resort proponents finally won a 20-year fight for permits, and the NDP promised to take them away. A larger ideological battle over private power contracts has also been avoided. The B.C. Liberals have been caught by a sudden shift in power markets caused by cheap, abundant natural gas, but the billions in commitments to independent power producers isn’t the fiasco that critics have described. If all those privately developed run-of-river hydro projects were owned and operated by BC Hydro, the Crown corporation would have to staff them and maintain them all for the next 40 years. There are differing views about the future demand for electricity in B.C., but it can only rise with industry and population growth. A decade of federal and provincial work to end duplication of environmental assessment won’t be undone. NDP leader Adrian Dix’s promise for “made in B.C.” reviews was a strategy to choke resource projects to death under endless procedure, which may yet be the fate of the Jumbo resort. We will have a Seniors’ Advocate office, but it won’t be staffed up to duplicate the

Ombudsperson’s role of taking complaints. That’s good, since the Ombudsperson has become ineffective, labouring for years over a massive seniors’ report with so many recommendations it sank like a stone. We have 85 seniors’ advocates now. They’re called MLAs, and they definitely take complaints. They have staffed offices in their home communities and in Victoria. When they’re not doing political work that everyone denies is going on in constituency offices, those office staffers try to help people through the labyrinth of seniors’ at-home and institutional care. A new seniors’ advocate can offer advice at the management level to help the health care system evolve, but only elected politicians are positioned to tell individuals they can’t have what they are demanding. The government should be adding more direct services, not more bureaucrats. There will be many arguments about the failure of the NDP to win against an unpopular B.C. Liberal government that is still weighed down by the harmonized sales tax and other heavy baggage. This election could be the beginning of the end for the old left-right model for B.C. politics.

Editor: If you have trouble with the concept of a homeowner having their RV parked on their property and it looking unsightly on the property that they pay taxes for then what do you think of people who have nowhere to park their RV, but feel it is okay to park it on public property where it becomes an eyesore? That’s the thing that annoys me. I don’t own an RV and probably never will considering my age, but when I have to look at them out of my front window it frosts my socks. And as an aside. for those of you who do own RVs and choose to store them on your own property, consider this: when you take a trip everyone out there knows you are not home. Some food for thought. D. Atkinson, Langley

No substitute for HandyDart Editor: Something has been puzzling me since the TransLink announcement that taxis will sometimes be used more than buses to save money. This would make sense if TransLink owned the taxis, but under the present circumstances I don’t see how that works. My motherin-law takes the HandyDart every week from Aldergrove to Surrey to spend the day with us. She pays only $2.50 for this service. More often, recently, she has returned home by a taxi sent out by HandyDart. She has often noted how expensive the taxi service is. Run by a private company, the normal charge would be about $70; she still only pays the $2.50, and the rest of the charge is subsidized. I don’t get how this can be cheaper than sending a HandyDart van – even empty – to pick her up. Surely gas and wages do not amount to more than $70 for a 30-km journey? The most sensible solution is for HandyDart to buy a few fueleconomic cars to serve this purpose, and they can be driven by drivers currently employed by HandyDart. This would preserve jobs as well as saving money, and the drivers used would be trained to help old people. The taxi drivers frequently just drive the car but do nothing to assist the old person into the car. This can be a serious problem for people who are unsteady on their feet and who is responsible if there is a fall and bones are broken? Eileen Spencer, Surrey

Subsidizing ride not fair Editor: Re: No Substitute for HandyDart, letters. So, the letter writer is upset that HandyDart uses taxis at times to transport their clients. Such taxi rides, she says, could amount to $70 to transport her mother-in-law from Aldergrove to Surrey, a ride for which HandyDart charges $2.50. Just as big a question is why is HandyDart transporting people that distance for only $2.50, heavily subsidized by the taxpayer? It’s one thing to transport people via HandyDart around a local town for $2.50, but a ride from Aldergrove to Surrey for the same amount? Is this fair to taxpayers? Don Campbell, Surrey

Giving thanks for Maya By VIKKI HOPES Aldergrove Star

Karm Ahuja was holding her baby daughter’s tiny hand, just after she had emerged from four hours of open-heart surgery. Maya appeared so tiny in the full-sized hospital bed, and she was connected to a frightening collection of tubes and machines. The four-month-old looked up at her mom and, before Karm could make a connection, the baby went blank. The beep of the flatlining heart monitor was followed by controlled panic. A nurse pushed Karm out of the way, and a cardiologist came charging into the room. Karm and her husband, Langley Times reporter Gary Ahuja, were escorted by another nurse to a private waiting area. “She’s gone. I don’t think they’re going to be able to revive her,” Karm said through her numbness. All Karm and Gary could do was wait. It would take a full 22 minutes for Maya to be revived, and a while longer before the couple was told she was alive. Maya’s health was precarious for months afterwards, but today the almost three-year-old is energetic and feisty. She enjoys playing with her six-year-old brother Danny, and they share an interest in Thomas the Tank Engine, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob SquarePants, cake and lollipops. “Maya is very physical. She loves to wrestle and tickle and pinch,” Karm said. The Abbotsford couple credit

Langley Times reporter Gary Ahuja, joined by his wife, Karm, and son Danny, 6, hugs his three-year-old daughter, Maya, at the family’s Abbotsford home. Maya, who had open heart surgery at four months old and has been diagnosed with both a congenital heart defect and Cornelia de Lange syndrome, is this year’s World of Smiles telethon’s Champion Child. The family’s goal is to raise $100,000 over 20 years for B.C.’s Children’s Hospital, to say thanks for all that its doctors, nurses and staff have done for Maya. the team of doctors and nurses at B.C. Children’s Hospital with Maya’s recovery. As a way to give thanks, they are participating in the A World of Smiles Telethon on Sunday, May 26. Maya is this year’s “champion child.” They have also set a goal to raise $100,000 ($5,000 a year for 20 years) — the cost of an ECMO machine, a heart/lung machine used for open-heart surgery patients. “That machine helped save

our daughter’s life. I only thought it would be right to give something back,” Gary said. Karm was about three months’ pregnant with Maya when a blood test detected some abnormalities, but the exact condition wasn’t known until her birth on June 15, 2010. A battery of tests confirmed that Maya had a congenital heart defect known as tetralogy of fallot, which reduces the flow of blood through the heart. She would require surgery,

but not right away. That time came when Maya was four months old and her condition had worsened, causing increasingly laboured breathing and lethargy. The surgery went well, but after the flatlining episode, doctors could not stitch her chest back up for seven days, due to the swelling of her heart. Maya was placed in a druginduced coma while she healed. “It’s hard to see your child like that,” Gary says. Maya spent a total of six weeks in hospital and returned at the age of 14 months to have surgery on the cleft palate that she had also been born with. Maya has since been diagnosed with a genetic condition called Cornelia de Lange syndrome, a developmental disorder that can affect many parts of the body. She will require another surgery — around the age of five — to fix the blood flow between her left and right atria. But Gary and Karm are optimistic about Maya’s future. She has come through so much already, but is otherwise a typical three-year-old. “I can’t imagine not having this little monkey,” Karm says.

Editor’s note — Times reporter Gary Ahuja and his family are planning a series of fundraisers over the next 20 years. Through their family and friends they have already raised more than $10,000.

Free ‘Bike to Work Week’ launch barbecue Aldergrove Star

On Saturday, May 25, bring your bikes, family and co-workers down to Langley City Park picnic shelter for a free Bike to Work Week Launch Barbecue, free bike safety checks provided by Cranky’s Bike Shop, and a family bike ride. “We are excited to be a part of Bike to Work Week,” says Heath MacKenzie, owner of Cranky’s Bike Shop in Aldergrove. “As the Fraser Valley becomes more bicycle friendly, we want to continue to partner with organizations that help people realize the value of bicycles in our everyday lives.”

The barbecue is from 12 to 3 p.m., with a family bike ride leaving the picnic shelter at 3 p.m. The bike safety checks give Bike to Work participants the opportunity to get their bikes in shape before Bike to Work Week. “Our staff will be on hand this Saturday to ensure local cyclists get off to a safe start for Bike to Work Week,” says MacKenzie. “We will also be hosting a 5km family-friendly group ride near the end of the event.” The family bike ride enables people to get out on their bikes, try cycling through the Langley area, and learn the rules of cycling in traffic while feeling

more comfortable surrounded by fellow cyclists. “Biking to work or school gives people an opportunity to be active and work out while they get to where they need to go,” says Terri-Lynn Gifford, program coordinator of Bike to Work Week Fraser Valley. “Biking to work also helps improve mental health and wellbeing, gets people energized for the day, and improves productivity at work.” Last year during Bike to Work Week, close to 20,000 participants B.C.-wide saved 209,610 kg of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere in just

one week. Bike to Work Week runs May 27 to June 2 across B.C. this year. Participation is free. Go to www. biketowork.ca to register. Participants only need to cycle one day during Bike to Work Week to be entered into the prize draw. If people cannot cycle to work or school, they can cycle to run errands, meet friends for coffee, or anywhere else that they’d normally drive to in order to qualify for the prize draw.

Township consolidates control of Langley Events Centre Aldergrove Star

The Township of Langley now controls every aspect of day-to-day operations at the Langley Events Centre (LEC), with a municipally-owned company taking over ice maintenance at the multi-purpose sports facility. Ten Feet Sports and Entertainment replaces Recreation Excellence, the private company that had the contract for services.

The president of Ten Feet is the Langley Township general manager of administration and community services, Jason Winslade, who describes the Township-owned company as an arm’s-length public firm. Winslade said the takeover completes a switch from private to a more “cost-effective” public administration that was ordered by council three years ago. He praised Recreation

Excellence for operating services during the transition. “They did an excellent job under difficult circumstances,” Winslade said. Employees of Recreation Excellence who work at the LEC are being invited to apply for jobs with Ten Feet, he said, adding the two other Township contracts with the private company, to manage the George Preston and Aldergrove facilities, have been extended

another two years. In 2010, Langley Township council hired Recreation Excellence after it voted to take control of the management of LEC and buy out Langley Development Group, the company that built and operated the facility. The $8.83 million deal was approved in December of that year by a 7-2 council vote over the heated objections of thenmayor Rick Green.

‘Busy Bee’ lunch to honour ‘Day of Honey Bee’

THURSDAY, | Aldergrove The Aldergrove Star || 11 THURSDAY, MAY 23,MAY 201323, |2013 The STAr

‘Battle’ promotes local music Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove Star

The Honourable Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of British Columbia signed a proclamation on March 6, 2013 declaring May 29 as “The Day of the Honey Bee”. The Proclamation recognizes the importance of the honey bee in agricultural enterprises in B.C. and its contribution since ancient times. To mark the Day of the Honeybee, Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm & Meadery in West Abbotsford is offering a free pancake lunch for anyone dressing up like a bee or dressing in bee colours of yellow and black. “We recognize that as May 29 falls mid-week that many will be working or in school, but we do like to mark the exact day, so a busy bee lunch is how we are choosing to honour the Day of the Honey Bee,” says Judy Campbell, production manager. “If weather permits, we’ll head out to one of our new hives to find and mark a Queen Bee,” says Mike Campbell, general manager. A group photo is planned for noon, and there are bee word puzzles and colouring sheets for the little ones. The lunch activities will take place on Wednesday, May 29 from 11-12:30, at the farm at 2595 Lefeuvre Road, Abbotsford. For more details call 604856-2125 or visit www. bchoney.com

Each week, three bands square off to qualify for the finals of CIVL Radio’s Battle of the Bands, where local acts compete for a variety of prizes and community exposure. The competition is in its first round, and every Saturday three bands perform at Aftermath on the UFV Abbotsford campus. A winning band is selected by a panel of judges based on originality, musicianship, song writing, stage presence, and crowd response. Winners from each week will go on to round two. Losing bands still have a chance to make it into the finals

as wildcards through online fan voting after the first six rounds are completed. Last Saturday, Old Mare, Casinos, and Lonely Cave Kings played to a crowd of about 60 people. Judges declared Casinos the winners, who will move on to the finals, with the other two bands waiting for the wild card selections. Aaron Levy, station manager at CIVL Radio, said 47 bands applied to the Battle of the Bands, coming from Chilliwack to Delta. A panel pared it down to 18 bands that would compete in the first round. Levy said the Battle of the Bands

Reserve

helps CIVL Radio fundraise and raise their profile in the community, but also helps increase exposure for local bands and promote the music scene in the Fraser Valley. “The Fraser Valley has an incredible and immense amount of talent.” The bands are competing for $4,000 worth of prizes from Tractorgrease Multimedia, Five Acres Studio, Jayme Anne Photography, and Long & McQuade. The event runs every Saturday until July 15, all ages. Aldergrove’s Hrdwtr is competing this Saturday, May 25, 7:30 p.m.

Temporary Road Closure until July 1: 216 Street from 64 to 56 Avenue

Summer Maintenance of Rural Boulevards and Ditches

Stage 1 Lawn Sprinkling Restrictions

A temporary road closure of 216 Street from 64 Avenue to 56 Avenue will be in effect until July 1.

The Township of Langley uses three full-time and one seasonal roadside grass mower for ditch mowing. This equipment has predetermined routes or an assigned area to follow. If the equipment is pulled away to do a specific request, it only lengthens the time it takes to fully complete all the rural boulevards and ditches.

Effective for all municipal water system users throughout the Metro Vancouver area, including the Township of Langley

The road closure is required for construction of the East Langley Water Supply. A detour route is outlined in the map.

If you have a request for mowing or brushwhacking, we ask that you be patient as we try to fit the work schedule in as efficiently as possible.

The Township, along with Provincial and Federal agencies, have classified open channel water systems into three categories: Class A ditches are fish bearing and Class B ditches are fish habitat. Both of these categories require formal approval before any work can be completed. Class C ditches are deemed to have no fish or fish habitat issues whatsoever and only require notification for work to take place. How or when a ditch is cleaned depends on its classification. Thank you for your understanding as we operate under these requirements. Engineering Division 604.532.7300
