Governor General David Johnston greeted members of the Langley All Stars baseball team on Monday afternoon in the Fraser Presentation Theatre at the Langley Civic Centre. He was in town to present the players with the Governor General’s Caring Canadian award for their trip to Uganda in January 2012. In a friendly tournament, organized by Vancouver’s Ruth Hoffman, the team travelled to Africa to play a team which was denied entry to the U.S. for the Little League World Series in 2011.

Little Leaguers honoured as ‘Caring Canadians’ Langley All Stars recognized by Governor General for their journey to Uganda in January, 2012 Gary ahuja Times Reporter

“It takes courage and heart to travel to a continent which the media portrays it to be a place of war, poverty, disease and corruption. To us down here, you are heroes and deserve this award.” Those were the words of Coach George, the coach of the Ugandan baseball team and president of the Ugandan baseball and softball association. He sent an email to Ruth Hoffman, who was the driving force behind the Pearl of Africa Series. The series saw a team of

Langley baseball players — aged 11 and 12 — who had represented Canada at the Little League World Series. They were scheduled to play Uganda, but the African champions were denied entry into the United States due to some discrepancies with their visas and paperwork. The Pearl of Africa Series raised enough money to send the Langley baseball team to Uganda for a week in January 2012 to not only play that game, but to help grow and establish the sport. It was also made into a Sportsnet documentary, Fair Ball, which shared the story. And after seeing the

documentary, Alberta’s Janice Miller was so touched by its message, she decided to nominate Hoffman and the team for the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. Governor General David Johnston was at the Township of Langley’s Fraser River Presentation Theatre on Monday afternoon to present the award to the players. The award was created in 1995 to recognize the “unsung heroes of our country,” Johnston told the audience. The Caring Canadian Award recognizes those who volunteer their time and efforts to help others build a smarter and more caring nation. “As Governor General, I consider it a great privilege to recognize members of this team and those who supported them,” Johnston said. “On behalf of all Canadians, thank you for your caring and

kindness.” Colby Ring, who spoke to the audience on behalf of his teammates, said it was a lifechanging experience which changed the players forever. “We went to Uganda … to play a game of baseball, little did we know that our experience was not only about baseball, but about life lessons and outlooks and especially making life-long friendships,” he said. He said that they think daily about what they saw over that week and who they met. “Uganda is a poor country but rich in many ways,” he said. “Going there taught all of us how lucky we are, even if we sometimes forget. “They have a special place in our hearts; they changed us forever (and) I hope they know how much they have given us. “They have given us so much more than the bats, the balls,

the shoes, the stuff that we gave them. “We miss them and thank them.” Hoffman said that the trip — which included former Major League Baseball players Gregg Zaun and Derrek Lee, as well as the Philadelphia Phillies’ Jimmy Rollins — left a lasting impression. “It showed thousands of kids in Uganda that others care,” Hoffman said. “And when kids feel this kind of caring, they develop selfconfidence and start believing in themselves.” Struggling to keep her emotions in check at times, Hoffman shared an email from Samuel Gingo, who was on the Ugandan Little League team. He wrote that meeting the Canadian kids had a profound impact on his life.

Web viewers say ‘goodbye, kitties’ After becoming Internet sensations, six Langley kittens and their mother have all gone to new homes Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Patti Dale Animal Shelter manager Sean Baker holds a donation and thank you card from a girl in Japan, who wrote that watching the six kittens on the Internet made her feel better after losing her own kitty in April.

Six Langley kittens and their mom, whose every move was captured on a live Internet feed for eight weeks, 24 hours a day, captured the hearts of the world. They have all been adopted, confirmed Patti Dale Animal Shelter. But thank yous for letting the furry felines’ day-to-day antics be shared with everyone are coming in from around the world. “We received registered mail from Japan today. “The front of the envelope had a dozen cute Hello Kitty stickers and more Hello Kitty stickers inside,” said Patti Dale animal shelter manager Sean Baker. “Inside there was a letter, a picture of Petunia and her kittens and $75 in Canadian five-dollar bills.” The girl from Japan wrote that she had lost her own cat in April and watching these kittens play and sleep made her feel happy. “They cheered me. I hope their [sic] happiness,” wrote the girl. They have also received donations from England and other countries. In fact, the live feed saw more than 1.3 million views during the eight weeks volunteer foster mom Shelly Roche trained her

webcam on the feline family, and let their adorable ways do the rest. A link via The Times’ Facebook page also proved very popular, drawing more readers than anything else featured on the page — by a wide margin. Their cute kitten play captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people, some of whom found themselves in trouble with employers because they were watching kittens instead of working. Two kittens were adopted together, and young mom Petunia also found a nice home, said Baker. One of the females had to wait to be spayed because she didn’t weigh enough. Baker held back another female so she had a companion through coming out of surgery. Now all seven have gone to good homes, he said. He doesn’t know if Roche would be willing to do it again. “It’s a huge commitment to open your home up to a live camera. “But the end product was amazing. “It’s like a good book. You don’t want it to end and when it does, you say, ‘OK, but what’s next?” said Baker. In the meantime, there are still plenty of kittens and cats looking for a good home. If you are interested in adoption call Patti Dale Animal Shelter at 604-857-5055.

Huge anti-gang unit presence in Langley over weekend Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit — B.C.’s anti-gang agency —

executed a search warrant on a property in Gloucester Industrial Estates, in the 27000 block of 56 Avenue (across from Freybe Gourmet Foods).

A huge police presence was seen on the property both Saturday and Sunday, with one nearby resident telling The Times he saw police using a crane to remove

containers. CFSEU spokesperson Sgt. Linsdey Houghton wasn’t prepared to give details on what was found on the property and if there were

any arrests. “The warrant is in relation to an ongoing investigation,” said Houghton. The police unit will release more details this week.

The Sergis moved to Langley from Pigeon Lake, Alta. in July, 1998 to help out an uncle who had no children. Shortly after that, they began donating their time and seemingly boundless energy.

They enjoy watching the cyclists and dog walkers and

We get to to enjoy nature at its best.” For the Sergis, volunteering is as much about what they get back as what they can offer. “I just love people.

‘The man is a hero in our eyes’ Father and son rescued from Fraser River Monique TaMMinga

removing their boat from a day of fishing. He rushed over to them and and asked them to re-launch the boast and help with a rescue. “We went down stream and thankfully we found them quick,” said Murnaghan. The Cloverdale fisher said he wanted to be careful not to crash his boat into Hampel’s and sink it faster than it would have. “He was an expert at maneuvering in those fast moving waters.” said a grateful Hampel. “The man is a hero in our eyes.” Murnaghan and his fishing friends managed to throw a tow line and safely brought the father and son on board. They then towed Hampel’s boat to the Haney dock in Maple Ridge. For Bradley, the experience was “scary.” They were stuck out on that log boom for 51 minutes, said Hampel. Forty of those were spent on the line with a 911 dispatcher who Hampel credits for keeping him calm. Murnaghan said this is the worst three weeks to be out on the Fraser. “Even with lifejackets they couldn’t survive this river,” he said. It was his first rescue and “hopefully my last.” Hampel said he grew up on the Fraser River but can’t event think of going back on it anytime soon. “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever been involved in,” he said. “We wanted to give a huge thank you to all involved.”

A Langley father and son came out to the Langley RCMP detachment to offer a huge thank you for being saved from certain drowning on the swollen Fraser River on Sunday. Michael Hampel and his nineyear-old son Bradley were out sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River when their boat’s anchor rope became entangled with a tree and into the boat’s motor, rendering it inoperable. Hampel cut the rope loose in fear the tree was going to drown the boat. “We were drifting when the current threw us broadside into a log boom and we were sideways,” said Hampel at a press conference held at Langley RCMP detachment on Wednesday. “I was thinking how are we going to get out this? I knew I had to stay calm for my son,” said Hampel. But he knew the current could capsize them at any time, dumping the pair into the cold water which is full of hazards during the freshet. Hampel called Langley RCMP 911 to request urgent assistance. Langley RCMP immediately began to mobilize resources including Fraser Valley Search and Rescue, the Coast Guard and officers nearby who raced to the last known location of the boat. Const. Niko Geneblaza was the first to arrive at the Fort Langley Marina and took note of fisher Paul Murnaghan and three of his friends

Municipal restraint

Treaty settlements must be a priority


he Canadian Federation of Independent Business has taken aim at municipal spending across Canada, just as municipal leaders have gathered in Vancouver for the annual convention of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. The scrutiny is long overdue. The CFIB notes that municipal spending has grown by 55 per cent in the last decade, even as the population has grown by 12 per cent. Here’s some direct quotes from a CFIB press release: “It is reasonable to assume that municipal spending would keep pace with increases in population and with increases in prices (inflation). Across Canada, population growth between 2000 and 2011 has been 12 per cent. In Vancouver, population growth was 15 per cent. Over that same time period, inflation-adjusted municipal operating spending increased by a jaw-dropping 55 per cent and 50 per cent respectively. “In other words, the pace of municipal spending growth was over three times the growth in population and inflation. “Put another way, municipalities have increased per-person spending by over 30 per cent. Do you feel like you are getting 30 per cent more services from your municipal government? “Municipalities claim they are falling behind on one of their core responsibilities — infrastructure. At the same time, they say they need more revenue to deal with problems not addressed adequately by other levels of government, like housing and health. “Transfers from senior levels of government to B.C. municipalities increased by 273 per cent between 2001 and 2010. So where is all this new municipal revenue going? “Municipal employment increased by double the rate of population growth over the past 12 years. In addition, municipal employees make 36 per cent more in wages and benefits than equivalent jobs in the private sector. Wages and benefits make up 67 per cent of Vancouver’s budget. To unravel the overspending, this is where we must start.” CFIB makes some excellent points. Municipal wages are considerably higher than those for similar workers in the private sector. Tough bargaining is needed to help rectify the imbalance. A close look at all benefits that go to municipal employees is also needed. Municipal governments need to start exercising some restraint.

igh up on Christy Clark’s ‘to do’ list when she unveils her new cabinet and new direction has to be aboriginal treaty settlements. Too few treaties have been signed since the federal and provincial and First Nations agreed on the principle of negotiated treaties recognizing self government and control over resources. (In this region, the 2000 Nisga’a treaty was negotiated outside of the established treaty process while the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum, just this year, approved agreements in principle leading toward final talks after more than 17 years of negotiations.) Premier Clark must decide on a political direction for treaty settlements that, in concert with the federal government, seeks to hasten progress. At the moment the political end of land claims has fallen way behind the economic reality of relations with aboriginal peoples. Pick any major project in this region from BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line, to mines, to liquefied natural gas plants plans and the pipelines to feed them and you’ll find some kind of economic deal signed with a First Nation or a promise of signing one. These deals so far fall under the broad “consult and accommodate” approach that’s been developed thanks to court rulings. The challenge for the premier is to now find a political model that fits with the growing economic importance of aboriginal peoples. —Terrace Standard (Black Press)

Park is no place for car racing Editor: The thought of Campbell Valley Park being opened up as a venue for motor car racing feels like being violated. It violates the people who live around the park; all the people who use the park for walking,and riding their horses; those who use it for quiet contemplation; and all the animals that live in the park. It is a quiet refuge for both humans and animals alike. If the park is used for this kind of activity, it would forever change the ambience of Campbell Valley Park, and also the whole area. It is essentially an equestrian paradise. After all, Langley is considered the horse capital of B.C. There is no public transit to the venue, therefore cars are the only means to attend the events. Hundreds of cars

and hot rods will be making noise, congesting roads that have very high horse traffic (whch is dangerous). There is also the environmental impact on the park itself. The people who live around this area are conscious of and have a respect for the horses on the roads and in the park. When you start getting large groups of people in cars from Vancouver and other areas, who are not familiar with the dangers of animals and traffic, it is asking for a fatal accident to occur. I have heard that there would be rules for muffler noise and catalytic converters used for the race cars, but that does not address the problem of the enthusiasts who love to bring their hot rods out to

A CoinCidenCe?

show off to other enthusiasts. The people who have bought property around the park, the residents who live here and pay property taxes to live here, are going to be royally screwed if this proposal is allowed to go through. A lot of these people have moved from places like Vancouver to enjoy the quiet and peaceful ambience of the area. Parks are supported by our tax dollars. They are not designed to be a cash cow for politicians or special interest groups. People live here and visit here because of the piece and quiet. Motor car racing and natural parks are not compatible. Please protect our parks. Judy Clappison, Langley

Track revival would be a positive move Editor: I have been watching the debate for and against the reopening of the historic Langley Speedway for the better part of a month. As a longtime resident of the South Surrey/White Rock/Langley area, I wholeheartedly support the revival of this historic venue. I do not race cars and grew up on a farm where my family was greatly involved with horses and the equestrian lifestyle. Recently I took an extended vacation south, and took in some riding. While we were on horseback, we were greeted by speeding four-wheelers and large semitrucks on the highways and back road areas, along with the sounds of rifles being fired. What struck me as curious was the ability of the horses to ignore the surroundings, to a degree. It troubled me I could not take the time to write about the

speedway during my time off. On my way home, I went to Alberta, where I went to witness my first short track race in Wetaskawin. It was exciting and lively. What I saw really made me want to write to you. The event was filled with families having a great time together. They were cheering their friends, their families and strangers. It was something I find sorely lacking in an age of video games and the breakdown of the family dynamic, which appears to be rampant. I recall discovering the speedway track about five years back, while on one of my many walks through the park. I was filled with a sense of wonderment and excitement that this fabled track actually existed. You see, as a kid, there were rumblings of this hidden track in the park. To us it was this mythical place. It was up there

with Westwood,which was a world-class and venerable track that co-existed with nature for many years. I almost immediately was reminded how the tracks are disappearing throughout North America due to development. This green space is prime to start a new era. I have read the pros and cons and think the statistics being touted by the opposition are greatly exaggerated. This is fear mongering at its worst. Racing would only be one part of the equation, given the Lower Mainland’s fascination with all things automotive. Car shows, swap meets,school programs, peewee racing and many other types of events could benefit from opening the track for public use, and could generate a great deal of revenue. David Phelps, Surrey

Editor: Like most Langley Township homeowners, I received my property tax statement last week. It contained a 2.79 per cent increase.According to the Township finance departmentt, the increase was needed to pay for an increase in budget of $3,461,808. If that sum ($3,461,808) divided by the estimated 10,000 illegal suites, it comes to $350 per illegal suite. Why, that’s exactly what the license fee is for a legal suite in the Township. Is that a coincidence or what? J. Beauman, Langley

Good experienCe Editor: As the school year comes to a close, we are all busy with year-end functions and events. I’d like to take a moment to thank the staff and all the teachers at H.D. Stafford for making our middle school experience so wonderful — especially Mrs. Bhamra (nee Nijjar) and Ms. Pudlas who daily enrich our kids’ lives in the Integrated Fine Arts program. Congratulations also to all the coaches and staff for an amazing sporting season. If you are a parent with a child currently in Grade 5 considering H.D. Stafford, know that this is a wonderful school where teachers truly connect with the kids and encourage them to try a multitude of explorations. E. Ryans, Langley

Hey McGregor, many of us love to ride our bikes Editor: I was disappointed to read the same old tired and worn-out treatise on cycling in Jim McGregor’s May 30 column. It was written from the stunted point of view of the car-centric. Why could he have not been more supportive of those of us in the cycling community who love to ride our bikes, and who wish more of the general population could experience the benefits? Can’t you remember how, as a kid, you lived on your bike? It was the quickest and easiest way to get where you were going. There used to be so many bikes in the school bike racks it was hard to remember where you had parked yours when you dashed out of class for a quick get-away home, then went off to your friend’s place for the The

latest adventure. Oh the freedom — to venture halfway across town, and still make it home in time for supper. I pity today’s school children, stuffed away in cars. Injury, pain? Only if you are obtuse enough to restart your cycling career by doing too much too soon. Clashes with traffic? Langley has many designated cycle routes to explore, following less-crowded byways, that could introduce you to new parks and neighbourhoods. Those much fought for cycle paths and lanes at least warranted a mention from McGregor. Fire trucks, ambulances, and police cars are more likely to be idling at the side of the road attending a vehicle crash. Check the police statistics.

As to cost: the average cost of car insurance for one year is more than enough to pay for a fairly upscale and efficient bicycle, or two or three, depending on the family size. What clothing to wear? Millions of Dutch and Danish commuters seem to have no problem with apparel. Don’t tell me that Canadians are not capable of also solving that non-issue. Getting around on a bicycle is not the immense chore he portrays. I am continually amazed that people find it surprising that a bicycle can be used to go places. I can’t remember when I did not ride my bike. In the 1950s and 1960s. I rode my bike to school, since it took too long to walk. In the 1970s, I didn’t have a car so I

walked to work and took transit, but my bike got me everywhere else. In the 1980s when I lived in Vancouver, I rode my bike to work. First from South Granville to Pender Street, then later from Commercial Drive to the GiImore area. When we moved to Langley, I did own a car to commute to Burnaby. In the 1990s I rode my bike with my child. Currently, I ride my bicycle to the library, to my dentist, doctor and hair appointments, and to the grocery store. Cycling is just a part of life — a simple, quiet, and efficient method of getting around. Shame on McGregor. He did us all a disservice by making up lazy, contrived excuses not to cycle.

Not all memory problems are caused by Alzheimer's – sometimes memory and recall naturally diminishes with age or other conditions, such as dementia. Tips to help include developing routines (such as always placing your keys in a specific place), taking the time to pay more attention to what you are doing, avoiding distractions or multi-tasking and getting sufficient sleep.

It appears the drug is capable of blocking the toxic effects of amyloid protein, thought to cause brain cell death.

Developers take note — the Langley School District is looking to more than double its school site acquisition charge. But if it gets approval, it won’t take effect until late 2014. The district hired Urban Systems Limited to look into how much Langley charges the development community and learned it has been charging a lot less than its neighbouring cities. The proposal is to charge $590 for each medium density property, up from its current $283. The charges are paid by developers and go toward the purchase of land for schools to be built. Trustees agreed to forward the proposal to the consultation process. Now the consultant will go to the stakeholders of the Township and City as well as the developmen t community this week. Councils then have 60 days to provide feedback and then the district must submit the changes to the Ministry of Education for approval.

Langley man facing child porn charges monique tamminga Times Reporter

A 35-year-old Langley man is facing several child pornography charges after police seized several items from his home on May 29. Glenn William Schulz is charged with making, distributing and possessing child pornography. Schulz has been released on a $10,000 surety and a series of conditions restricting

him from being near or in the company of children under 16 years of age in a public location, being alone in the presence of any female person under the age of 16 years old, and restricting his access to the internet, and internet capable devices. In early May, the BC RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation Unit (BC ICE) was alerted to information involving a series of allegations. 

An investigation was launched and based on the investigative findings, officers obtained a search warrant for a residence in Langley. With the assistance of the Langley RCMP, BC ICE executed the search warrant on May 29 without incident and seized a number of items. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 20 in Surrey Provincial Court.

Arts study backed

Sgt. Rob Vermeulen. “As the information to obtain the search warrant is sealed, the police are not in a position to discuss

Everyone agrees — it’s time to look at whether or not there is a need for a performing arts and culture centre in Langley. The Langley Board of Education was the last piece of the funding puzzle, for the performing arts and cultural centre planning task force’s plan to hire a consultant to look into it. Trustees unanimously agreed to contribute $10,000 towards the study. Other funding partners are the Township, City, Trinity Western University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Trustee Rod Ross said the potential of a performing arts centre ,along with the building of a new high school, could be “powerful.” “The Langley Events Centre is an excellent example of how great things can happen when we work together,” said Ross. The school district was a financial partner in the building of the LEC. Secretary-treasurer David Green told trustees that the district has now paid off its loan for the LEC. Mountain Secondary borders LEC, and uses the facilities regularly. Other schoolrelated activities also take place there. The four Langley Rotary clubs have sponsored Langley Has Talent each year, with funds raised set aside for a future arts centre and to raise awareness of the need for one. The task force hope to have the study presented by October.

“As this investigation remains active and ongoing, no further comment can be provided,” said E Division spokesperson

Kitchen NeedaFace Lift? G Do you have a room in your house that could use a face lift? A little granite can make a big visual impact and add significant value to your home, according to Manuel Ama, the owner of G & A Touch of Granite Ltd. The Langley entrepreneur opened his showroom two years ago on Mufford Crescent, offering customized marble and granite countertops, as well as decorative wall and floor displays for both residential and commercial clients. “Whenever we put the new countertops in a home and take the old ones out it really transforms the entire room,” said Ama matter-of-factly. His crew average about 30 projects a month in homes and commercial buildings throughout the Greater Vancouver area. “For the money spent, it’s really one of the most reasonable ways to update your home – it’s definitely an investment worth making!” Ama, along with his partners, Jorge Garcia, have more than 10 years of experience in the industry, which includes several contracts with some high-end homes in Beverly Hills. While their business may be relatively new, they’ve already established themselves as leaders in the industry

by offering excellent quality product and reputable craftsmanship. Having a smaller showroom means they are able to offer prices that won’t break the bank. “With our experience and contacts in the industry, we can provide our customers with very reasonable rates and competitive pricing,” said Ama. “You’ll find that our pricing is definitely more reasonable than the larger operations out there.” In addition to being able to offer their customers low prices, a smaller showroom means more personalized service. “We are not a big store from back East, we are from right here in Langley and want to keep the money here in Langley,” said Ama, who also notes you won’t have to worry about long lines or weaving through the crowds to try to find someone to show you a sample. “There is always someone ready to help you here at G & A Touch of Granite Ltd.” Ama encourages anyone who is thinking about installing high-quality granite to contact him for a quote on their next project. “We will be happy to assist you and offer you creative solutions to help you

n behalf of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce I extend our sincere congratulations to our re-elected MLA’s Mary Polak in the Langley Riding, Rich Coleman in Fort Langley/ Aldergrove, and to newly elected MLA for SurreyFleetwood Peter Fassbender. It was a very long, hard fought campaign and we also thank you for participating in our 3 All Candidates Meetings. We look forward to working with you on local and provincial business concerns for the next 4-year term and ensuring that the Langleys and the Fraser Valley Region continue to be the preferred place to live, work, invest and play! The official totals from Elections BC are now in and we are advised that voter turnout in the Langley’s was up more than

5% over the previous election. The goal of our ‘Your Voice – Your Vote’ campaign was to achieve just that, and I am confident that our efforts contributed to the increase. Thank you to all of our members who supported our efforts and helped spread the word! In May, Kristine Simpson, Brian Dougherty, Lynn Whitehouse and I attended the BC Chamber AGM in Nanaimo where we participated in the policy debate to approve resolutions for presentation to the Provincial and Federal Governments. I am pleased to advise that our recommendations concerning Transportation Funding and Creation of a Provincial East-West Connector between Abbotsford Airport and Highway 99 were both passed by the delegates and they will now form part of the lobby to the Provincial Government. Both of these resolutions

are also posted on the Chamber Website at The Board of Directors is moving forward with a Long Range Plan and has approved a time-table to serve as a guideline through the next 3 years. We will provide updates on specifics of the plan as they are finalized. It is extremely hard to believe that this month we will host the 82nd Annual General Meeting of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce! This year has gone incredibly quickly for me. The agenda for the evening will include the election and Swearing In of the 2013/14 Board of Directors. Nominations for Officers, Community Directors and Directors-At-Large are being accepted until 5:00 pm Monday June 10, 2013.

’ve had a lot of people ask me about how to deal with negative or less than stellar comments on their Facebook fanpages lately. And it got me to thinking… as business owners don’t we prefer when someone complains to us directly so we can fix the problem for them, instead of them just going and telling all their friends about whatever they are unhappy about? A customer telling you about their complaint is your chance to make it right and to improve your business! What a gift!

happy then I’m much more likely to be successful. If they wanted their money back and you offer them a coupon for a future visit, they probably won’t be satisfied with your solution.

Yes it’s out there for all to see… so should you just ignore it and let for everyone see it and quietly step around and whisper about? Not in my opinion. In my opinion you should pick it up and take the time to talk about it and fix it! Respond to the poster; thank them for coming to your page to tell you about this, they didn’t have to after all. Then ask them for more details or just offer up a solution right then and there. Take the bull by the horn and face it head on! We all screw up sometimes; we all have grumpy people to deal with sometimes, no big deal. I always like to ask someone who is complaining how I can make things better for them… maybe they just want to be heard, maybe they want their money back or a coupon for a future visit… if I find out what will make them

So in summary, we all get complaints occasionally, it’s how you deal with them that matters:

When you deal with this situation with an open heart and with a sincere interest in helping to correct a problem, then you can’t go wrong. The original poster will see your effort and you might save an existing client but you have another opportunity here, you have an audience for your efforts… and you might just make some new clients because they are impressed with your efforts. It’s a win/win.

1) 2) 3) 4) 5)

Reply quickly Reply openly and honestly Ask questions Offer solutions Don’t give up!

And never, ever, ever, ever remove the complaint from your wall. It’s been posted, someone, somewhere has seen it… removing it just makes you look bad. Sherri-Lee Pressman , Social Media Minder

Employee Management Protecting your small business from fraud Fraud. It’s something that small business owners rarely think about until they are faced with the aftermath of becoming a victim, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Every business, regardless of size, can and should take a proactive approach to protecting themselves and their operations from fraud. Employee Management A 2011 survey by the Certified General Accounts Association of Canada reported that employee fraud costs small businesses $800 million annually, most of which is theft of inventory, assets, cash and company documents. To protect from employee related fraud, small businesses should: • Screen job applicants by checking references and finding out as much as possible about potential employees. • Hire experienced and qualified employees

Heart from the

Benefit concert will raise funds for cancer research, search-and-rescue training Brenda andersOn Times Reporter


t’s an effort that Murray McVay’s can really put his heart into. The manager of Canada’s Own Barracuda — a tribute to Ann and Nancy Wilson’s band Heart — is mounting a concert featuring a trio of cover bands, with a portion of the proceeds going to support two Langley families whose sons died last April when their canoe capsized in Nicola Lake, near Merritt. When the kickoff to the Classic Tribute Concert Series hits the stage at the Surrey Arts Centre on Friday, June 7, the first band on the triple bill will be Barracuda, featuring McVay’s wife Donna Caruk in the role of Ann Wilson and Rachael Chatoor covering Nancy’s side of things. Barracuda makes every effort to give fans an authentic Heart experience, said McVay. “We’ve replicated their look and the way they do the songs.” From Crazy On You to Alone, All I Want to Do is Make Love to You, and Dreamboat Annie, fans can expect to hear all their favourite Heart songs during the band’s 45-minute set at the venue in Bear Creek Park, said McVay. Those who prefer their classic tunes with a little more edge, can check out Bon Jovi

tribute, Blaze of Glory and rock along to Bad Medicine, Runaway and You Give Love a Bad Name. Those are all great songs, said McVay, but the one that never fails to thrill fans is Living on a Prayer. “That’s the one that gets people on their feet, singing along,” he said. Next up, Victoria-based Aerosmith Rocks will entertain ‘80s glam rock enthusiasts with some classic Aerosmith tunes — from Sweet Emotion, Crazy and Cryin’ to Dream On. For McVay’s generation, the concert offers audiences a chance to revisit their youth — even if it’s just for a couple of hours. “It hearkens back to the days when I had hair,” he laughed. But it’s not just fans in their 40s and 50s who come out to hear ’80s tribute bands, said McVay. It’s a younger generation, too, who have grown up listening to and appreciating their parents’ music. Originally intended as a fundraiser for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer — in support of Team Rock The $#@! Out Of Cancer — the scope of the event changed after McVay’s classmate, Kelly, lost her son, Austin Kingsborough, in a canoeing accident on Nicola Lake last month. Austin’s friend, Brendan Wilson, also died. Seeing his friend go through

Three tribute bands, including Barracuda (top) and Aerosmith Rocks (left) will raise funds to train search and rescue personnel to use the type of equipment which located the bodies of Langley teens Brendan Wilson (driving ATV) and Austin Kingsborough. such a heartbreaking tragedy, the concert promoter knew he had to do something to help. “That lady is a rock,” said McVay, who is studying to be an addictions counsellor. After a lengthy and ultimately unsuccessful search by police, the parents of the two boys hired an underwater search team from Idaho. The teens’ bodies were quickly recovered from the lake, not far from where their canoe had overturned. While the Americans conducted the search at no charge, said McVay, the families cov-

ered the expenses incurred in coming up to do the job. Once the concert has recouped its own costs, $5 from each of the next 150 tickets sold will go into a trust. Those funds will be used to train local search and rescue workers to properly use equipment similar to that employed by the American searchers. The goal of the fund, said McVay, is to help ensure other families who find themselves in similar tragic circumstances won’t’ have to wait so long to find closure. McVay plans to donate an

additional $1,200 to the Ride to Conquer Cancer. It’s another cause that hits home with McVay, who lost both his parents to cancer and has been through three bouts with the disease himself. Tickets for the all-ages show are $40. They’re available online at  Surrey Arts Centre is located at 13750 88 Ave. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information, go to Facebook and search for MurMan Productions.

Ellenwood caps off high school career in style Four medals brings career total to 13 for Langley’s Georgia Ellenwood Gary ahuja Times Sports

Bob FRIESEN/For The Times

Langley Secondary’s Georgia Ellenwood separates from St. Thomas More’s Zion Corrales-Nelson in the 100m at the B.C. high school track and field championships at McLeod Athletic Park. Ellenwood edged Corrales-Nelson for the gold medal.

Georgia Ellenwood leaves the high school ranks as one of the most decorated track and field athletes. Ellenwood added four more medals — three gold and one silver — to bring her total to 13 medals over the last four years at the B.C. high school track and field championships. The Grade 12 student at Langley Secondary won gold in the long jump, 100m and the heptathlon — which was held the week before in Abbotsford as part of the multi-sport championships — and a silver in the high jump on Friday and Saturday at McLeod Athletic Park. Ellenwood actually tied for the top mark in the high jump as both she and Little Flower Academy’s Jessica Hanson cleared 1.65m but Hanson did so in two

attempts while Ellenwood needed three tries. It brings her mark to 10 gold and three silver over an illustrious career that has netted Ellenwood a track and field scholarship to the University of Wisconsin. “I was happy with my long jump and my 100m,” she said. And while the long jump has been a staple event for Ellenwood over the years, the 100m was just added this year. “I wasn’t expecting to win (the event),” she said. “I was going in it for fun and seeing how I did.” She qualified for the finals after winning her heat in 12.29 seconds and then took gold by 0.10, in 12.36. Ellenwood won the long jump with a leap of 5.65m and her heptathlon score of 5,296 points was not only a personal best, but also a new provincial record. The high jump was a sore spot for her however, as she cleared just 1.65m. By comparison, in the heptathlon, Ellenwood jumped 1.74m. “That is very inconsistent,” she said. But overall, there were no

complaints. “I am happy with it for my last year of high school, but also kind of sad that it is over now,” she said. “But it is good to see the younger kids, all the great athletes, coming up,” she said. As for the rest of the summer, Ellenwood will now focus on qualifying for the Canadian junior nationals in Montreal next month and then the Pan American Junior Games at the end of August in Colombia. She has represented Canada for the past two summers. ••••• And Ellenwood was not the only member of her family to find the podium over the weekend in Langley. Her younger brother, Dean, was a double gold medallist in the Grade 8/9 championships, which were also held at McLeod Athletic Park. Dean Ellenwood, a Grade 9 student at Langley Secondary, took top spot in both the 400m and 800m events. He won the first race in 51.32 and the latter in 1:57.59.

The Langley Good Times Cruise-In is the best attended charity event in the Western Canada. It is an excellent opportunity to see the downtown core of Langley at its best. With over 100,000 people walking around the town, there is a distinct air of excitement and electricity that is hard to replicate any other time. The merchants have their businesses painted up and are doing their best to display their wares to all that are in the area. The entire city is mobilized to promote itself and to assist in the fundraising. The presence of over 1,000 classic cars gives us reason to show off our city and bring people to it. And the real benefit of the show is that all of the funds that are raised here are donated to local charities to assist Langley area people with challenges and problems. From the Langley Hospital Auxiliary to the Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Centre or the Langley Boys and Girls club, the thousands of dollars

raised stay right here in our community and assist those in difficult circumstances. If you are a business person in or around the city, or if you are a resident of the city or surrounding area, this is your opportunity to invite people to come to Langley and see what the area has to offer. Bring in business people and bring in tourists. Bring in anybody who may fall in love or see a benefit of the city to their future. While you are at it, make a small or a large donation to the Cruise-In and encourage them to do the same. The buzz of a successful event spreads to the attendees and will contribute a general positive attitude to the whole area. People will remember the feelings, the sights and sounds and smells that surrounded them at the fun event and will associate that fun with the location they experienced it. Invite some people now to come to Langley in September to enjoy this spectacular event and to fall in love with Langley. Show day is September 7th 2013, we hope to see you there!

It was fitting that Eli Kastelein won his first provincial high school track and field gold medal at McLeod Athletic Park. “It felt amazing to win and it is really nice getting to do it right here in Langley,” Kastelein said. “I’ve spent hundreds of long days training at the McLeod track so it was nice to end off my high school career there with such a great memory.” Kastelein, a Grade 12 student at Langley Christian, won gold in the 400m hurdles on Friday afternoon, crossing the finish line in 55.26 seconds. The time shaved almost two seconds off of his personal best. “I knew I was capable of running a winning time, it was just a matter of doing it at the right time,” he said. Kastelein still remembers first attending the B.C. high school championships when he was in Grade 8. “It totally blew me away, seeing all the talent,” he said. “(And) I knew this was my fifth and final shot at a provincial gold medal so I did everything I could to cross that finish line first.” Two years ago, Kastelein placed eighth and last year he won the bronze medal. He has spent the past couple of years training with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club. He has also signed his letter of intent to attend Portland’s Concordia University where he will compete in the NAIA. Langley Christian’s Aidan Kits was fourth in the 400m while Nick Colyn was fifth in the 2000m steeplechase.

with Keara Graham, Dallas Tilley and Megan Notting — in the 4x400 relay. Buckingham also had a fourth-place finish in the long jump, just missing the podium. Buckingham’s best leap was 5.17m, 0.6 behind third place. “I am happy,” she said of her three-medal performance, adding it would have been nice if her relay squad could have finished one place higher. Walnut Grove finished in a time of 4:05.63, two-tenths of a second behind W.J. Mouat for second place and just over

a second behind Oak Bay. Had they finished one spot better, the Gators would have won the senior girls banner, instead finishing two points back of Little Flower Academy. For Buckingham, her focus now shifts to hopefully competing for Canada at the world youth championships next month in Ukraine. The meet is for athletes born in 1996 and 1997, and to qualify, each participant must meet a qualifying standard as well as be in the top two for their country. Buckingham met the standard in the heptathlon already and is currently

Marshall obliterates PB, wins gold Gary ahuja Times Sports

There is setting a new personal best and then there is what Adam Marshall accomplished, which was smashing his PB. The 18-year-old Grade 12 student at Brookswood Secondary not only won the gold medal in the men’s 2000m steeplechase event, he obliterated his previous best time of 6:25.00. Marshall crossed the finish line in 6:08.77 at McLeod Athletic Park on Saturday afternoon at the B.C. high school track and field championships. Marshall’s previous best came a few weeks ago at the Fraser Valley championships, when he placed third. But Marshall fully expected to make a better showing at provincials. “For Fraser Valleys, I had the 800 heats and finals the same day as the

Brookswood’s Adam Marshall was golden in the men’s 2000m steeplechase event at the B.C. high school track and field championships on Saturday. steeplechase,” he explained. “So for provincials, I scratched the 1500m (event) so that I would be able to be fresh for the steeplechase.”

A Celebration of

And that is exactly what happened, as he won by three and a half seconds over North Surrey’s Ephraim Tadesse. Langley Christian’s Nick Colyn came fifth

in the event, finishing in 6:14.51. Marshall had finished ninth at the provincial championships last year, so to finish atop the podium this time around “was a pretty good feeling.” While Marshall sat out the 1500m race, he did take part in the 800m, and just missed the podium, placing fourth in a time of 1:56.35, only four-tenths of a second from third place. He had been second after the preliminaries. “I was happy (with fourth),” he said. “I didn’t have any expectations going into the event.” And with his high school competing days now over, Marshall plans to continue in the sport. He is a member of the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club, as well as training with the Trinity Western Spartans. He is undecided on his post-secondary plans.

Phillips, Betty It is with a profound sense of loss that we announce the passing of Betty Phillips (nee Ratzlaff) at the age of 70, having succumbed to cancer. She was a gentle, loving and caring person who brightened the lives of those around her. A teacher and a counsellor in the Abbotsford School District for many years, she influenced the lives of many, many children. She leaves behind a loving husband of 46 years, Murray; three children: Christine PhillipsHing (Martin); James Phillips (Inga) and Jonathan Phillips (Kerri). She was a devoted grandmother of seven: Brock, Grant, Marin, Tessa, Jaida, Hazel, and Ruby. She is survived by three brothers: Harold (Viola), Eric (Katie), and George (Jenny) as well as numerous nephews and nieces. Betty had a resilient faith and a gracious spirit that encouraged so many. Her memorial service will be held at White Rock Baptist Church, 1657 140 St Surrey, Thursday, June 6 at 2 pm. We are deeply grateful for the care of her doctors: at Vancouver General Hospital the medical staff led by Dr. Scudamore and Dr. Yoshida and in Langley, Dr. Hansen and Dr. Adamson; as well as the devoted and loving care of the staff at Langley Hospice. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Langley Hospice Society. Online condolences to the family may be made at

A Shiny New Tool Belt Makes A Great Christmas Present I recently came across an article by Lindsay Bunin in a magazine called Herald Homes. Her family had recently bought their first home and had spent a year and a half learning all sorts of new skills in how to look after their home. Mostly she had used professionals for the repairs but she managed to learn to do a few things herself. She referred her readers to an internet site entitled, “ 47 Skills You Need to Survive Homeownership”, and subtitled “ Don’t Get Caught With Your Tool Belt Down”. The site is provided and maintained by an organization named, “This Old House” and can be found at:,,20434090_20863132,00.html I related easily to Lindsey’s stories about having learned how to unplug a tub drain but, on the other hand, deciding to call in a professional plumber to fix a leaky water pipe. Some repairs can be tried without much risk whereas others are just too scary and you have to call a pro. As I was browsing through this list of regular maintenance and repair tasks and the very easy instructions on how to proceed with the repair I was reminded of my own experiences with do-it-yourself plumbing. Fortunately, the problem of household plumbing repairs was solved when my son became a licensed plumber. When one of the faucets in our main bathroom started to leak I simply called my son, the plumber. After all, I had paid for his apprenticeship and various other attempts at higher education so I thought it was just payback time. Unfortunately, he was busy for the next three weeks---seemed like plumbers were in high demand in those days. However he explained to me over the phone what the problem was, what parts I needed to buy from Home Depot, and how to change the thingamajig that was leaking inside the faucet. Amazingly it worked just like he said it would and, to this day, those faucets have never leaked again. Thus emboldened, when, a few years later, my wife, teenage daughter, and I noticed that a water pipe in the aforementioned main bathroom began to leak I figured I could fix it myself. I stared at the leaky pipe for a long time before I realized I was out of my depth and made the decision to ask our son for help again. The next day when I got home

from work I discovered my 85 lb., 4’-6”, 16 year old, daughter lying on the floor under the sink with her head in the cabinet talking on her cell phone. Even for a teenage girl that seemed rather odd. I discreetly backed away and went to the kitchen and asked my wife what was going on. My wife, with a horrified look on her face, explained that she was talking to her brother, the plumber, and that she was going to replace all the plumbing under the sink !! My teenage daughter - She of the ‘cool’ generation. My wife and I immediately fled to the family room, closed the door, and turned on the TV very loud so we wouldn’t hear the inevitable screams. In a little while our daughter appeared in the family room and announced that she needed to go to Home Depot to ‘pick up a few things’. I considered taking a peek in the bathroom to see how bad the situation was but decided against it. An hour later she returned with a Home Depot bag, disappeared into the bathroom, and within the hour she reappeared, announced that the bathroom sink had been replumbed and the leak was fixed. It has never leaked again either. Now Lindsey doesn’t have a son or a brother who is a plumber to call but this list sure looks like the answer for the more simple tasks. They even tell you what not to try: for instance, they seem to have a fear of fixing things electrical. In these cases they always tell you to call a licensed electrician except in one instance. That’s where you are trying to unscrew a broken light bulb. It involves a step ladder and half of a Russett potato---you’ll have to go to the site to learn more. But, like Lindsay, you’ll learn that fixing things around the house isn’t always that complicated and you’re a lot better at it than perhaps you thought. Who knows, one day you might get a shiny new Tool Belt for Christmas. Stewart Henderson Managing Broker Reach me at:
