Tempest over teapots Teapot Hill no place for teapots: B.C. Parks Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Some Chilliwack residents who enjoy climbing Teapot Hill in Cultus Lake Provincial Park have been asking why all the teapots are being removed. The topic exploded on a local Facebook page recently, with several posters lamenting what they perceive to be a recent phenomenon of disappearing teapots. But people leaving teapots on Teapot Hill is actually a relatively new phenomenon, said Rob Wilson, area supervisor for BC Parks and Protected Areas in the South Fraser area. The area was logged around 1940, and they built what was known as Road 918, now the Cultus Lake Horse Trail, and the trail that leads up to Teapot Hill. During road construction, an equipment operator walked over to the hill and found a single teapot. “That’s how Teapot Hill got its name,” Wilson told The Progress. About four years ago, some park users started placing teapots in various spots on Teapot Hill, like on rocks or in trees. As a result, the contractor who maintains Cultus Lake Provincial Park has been removing the teapots ever since, he said. The reasons are threefold. “One reason is that some of the teapots have been broken, for whatever reason, and the porcelain shards pose a cutting hazard, for people and dogs in particular,” Wilson said. It’s like broken glass. “So it’s a public safety issue.”

How to build a better Chilliwack Alina Konevski The Progress

A new local initiative will fund one deserving family’s down payment on a house, in an attempt to provide the security of home ownership to a family that would otherwise not have access to it. Build Chilliwack is inviting applications for a pilot attainable housing program that will provide a non-repayable grant of 5-7 per cent downpayment on the cost of a new home. If there’s enough demand, organizers Scott Street and Nick Derksen, from developer Summit Pacific Properties, may renew the program annually.

DOES YOUR BOX LOOK LIKE THIS?

This isn’t affordable or lowcost housing. Rather, it’s providing entry into the housing market for a family, broadly defined, that can afford a mortgage, but whose adults may be employed in jobs that haven’t allowed the family to save for a down payment. “It’s a different population that could easily be forgotten,” said Chilliwack Community Services executive director James Challman, who believes that owning a home builds community, and provides a sense of security. CCS, which heads the selection committee for Build Chilliwack, is seeking a family that is making Chilliwack its home, and is giving back to the community in some

way. “People that have been active in helping the community, through volunteering or other ways, that the community can give back to,” said Street. The family’s current housing situation is also a factor. Once selected, Summit Pacific Properties will build a new home for the family with a fair market value of $400,000–$425,000, in a new lot likely in the Promontory area. The total house will be approximately 2,500 square feet, not necessarily fully finished. The family will have a say in the lot location, as well as the interior and exterior design. The projected $25,000-30,000

grant will come from contractors working on the house, such as the developer, construction crew, plumber, electrician, and lumber supplier. Each will provide a portion of their profits toward covering the down payment. The cost of the house will not inflate to cover the grant. The selected family will have to afford a mortgage of approximately $1,750 before taxes, insurance and utilities, which means a combined annual income of about $55,000. A bank will review all applications. In an effort to have “buy-in” from the future home-owner, Build Chilliwack requires that the Continued: BUILD/ p7

Leak forces another shutdown of Kinder Morgan pipeline Trans Mountain pipe failed near Hope, releasing 20-25 barrels Jeff Nagel Black Press

For the second time this month, Kinder Morgan has shut down its Trans Mountain oil pipeline after the discovery of a leak, this time near Hope. An estimated 20 to 25 barrels seeped from a small defect in the pipeline 40 kilometres east of Hope near Highway 5, company officials said Thursday. Crews were expected to finish

repairing the pipe and removing contaminated soil late Thursday, allowing the pipeline to reopen. “There was no risk to human health or safety and there was no product that was identified in waterways and no wildlife has been affected,” Kinder Morgan Canada spokesman Andrew Galarnyk said. Kinder Morgan detected what it called “a small amount of petroleum product in the soil around the pipe” after performing a routine investigative dig on a section of the

pipeline that had been flagged for an integrity check. The pipeline – which runs through Chilliwack – was shut down Wednesday after the leak was discovered and Kinder Morgan notified the National Energy Board. The pipeline carries various petroleum products – including regular crude oil, heavy diluted bitumen from the oil sands and refined gasoline – but Galarnyk wasn’t yet able to say for sure what material leaked or for how long. The latest incident comes just two weeks after the company

halted the flow of oil in the pipeline on June 12 to repair a leaking section near Merritt. About six barrels of oil is said to have gradually seeped out there but did not enter any water courses. Both leaks were discovered through the use of monitoring devices that move through the pipeline in search of anomalies. “That’s the whole idea behind integrity programs,” Galarnyk said. “We are running these tools and when they do identify things that we need to look at further, we make sure we get those into priority sequence to address them.”

Setting the record for adventure Alina Konevski The Progress

On June 4, Chilliwack resident and aerospace engineer Maxim de Jong lost eight pounds and burned 15,000 calories. He also set an unofficial world record for travelling the greatest vertical distance in one day by scaling Mt. Cheam four times. “It was a fun objective done for the love of being in the mountains. Nothing more, nothing less,” said the 53-year-old owner of Thin Red Line Aerospace. De Jong climbed 7,925 vertical metres that day, gaining just under 2,000 metres of elevation during each of the four runs. This vertical distance is similar to the summit height of Mt. Everest. “The idea is to ascend the greatest vertical distance in one day—with no outside support, vehicular or human; i.e. this is an ultra-endurance event that is self-propelled and selfcontained,” he wrote in an email to The Progress. For each of the four laps, de Jong climbed for about five hours on a special “climber’s trail” he created on Mt. Cheam. At the top, he unfurled his mini paraglider and jumped off the peak. Traveling up to 90 km/h, his feet touched the ground eight minutes later. Repacking the glider into his backpack, de Jong set off through the woods and snow towards the summit again. It took him 21 hours and 11 minutes to complete 7,925 vertical metres. He doesn’t know how many kilometres he actually hiked because he measures ascents by vertical distance and doesn’t follow existing measured trails. But he may have covered as much as 80 km on foot that day. It’s 20 km one-way to Cheam peak from where de Jong parked near the highway, a route that would take a strong climber about the time that it took de Jong to

Black Press asked exactly when instruments detected the anomalies at each of the two leak sites – in other words how much time elapsed between a potential problem first being red-flagged and crews arriving to investigate and take action. Galarnyk said he did not have that information at hand and would have to “see what we can provide.” The company is proposing to twin the line that diagonals southwest from northern Alberta to the Lower Mainland. The $5.4-billion project would Continued: PIPE/ pW4

do one lap. The freedom of the wilderness regularly draws de Jong to extreme outdoor adventures. The long-time expert flyer and climber has many first ascents under his belt, as a well as a 6,187-vertical-metre climb on Elk Mountain in 2009. Requiring all of his mountaineering, ice climbing, flying, and running skills at once, Mt. Cheam is a particularly interesting challenge for de Jong, who rejects limits, and prefers asking “why not” instead of justifying inaction. “You can balance things in life and still do things that are cutting edge. Balancing trying to be the best dad and husband in the world. Trying to be the ultimate spacecraft engineer. And at the same time, still having some ‘me’ time as well,” he said. De Jong’s Chilliwack company, Thin Red Line Aerospace, has pinpointed the city as a Canadian aerospace centre. The trendset-

ting company builds hightech inflatable structures that become habitats for astronauts exploring other worlds, or undersea storage units, or aviation safety gear. Clients include NASA and Lockheed Martin. Mt. Cheam is a “world class mountain,” according to de Jong, and is one of few to enable an attempted record for greatest vertical metres in one day, because the base is relatively near sea level, and a climber can gain a lot of elevation quickly. Even so, de Jong had to time the attempt just right to make it possible. Snow level, temperatures, and wind were all factors. Any later in June, and mosquitos would have shut down the effort. Much of the steep traverse was through icy snow, and de Jong risked avalanches as well as bears that frequently wander the area, and had to cross a creek at the mountain base. He attempted the record

two years ago, nearly to the day, but managed only three laps before “flaming out.” He has scaled the mountain, or parts of it, 107 times in the past two-and-a-half years, bushwhacking to create the trail he used for this successful ascent. To his knowledge, this is the first time that a record in this category — climbing on foot and paragliding down between laps — has been set in Canada. The next-highest record of this type, also unofficial, was set in Austria by 29-year-old Christian Amon in 1998. Amon then climbed 7,600 vertical metres, 325 metres fewer than de Jong’s ascent on June 4. De Jong set the record alone, without a crew helping with gear, and every piece was equipment was ultra-compact and lightweight. The 18 pounds he carried included his clothing, glider and harness, ice axe, climbing boots,

helmet, hydration fluids, and camera. The experience was lonely, said de Jong, and because he started at midnight, much of it was dark and wet. “The only energizer I needed came from the open arms of wife and children at the landing between each lap,” he said. Because the record is unofficial and will not be verified by an external organization, it is possible that another athlete has beat it somewhere in the world, but de Jong doubts it. To set an official record, he would have had to carefully log the climb to make it verifiable. But for nature-loving de Jong, a down-to-the-metre measure of the climb would defeat its purpose: surpassing limits on a mountain adventure, and escaping the regiments of modern life. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/alinakonevski

While Chilliwack students are gradually improving in school performance, improvement is slow for high school graduations and transitions from Grade 9. That’s according to the latest release of the Ministry of Education’s Foundations Skills Assessment, which measures student performance in reading, writing and numeracy annually. Chilliwack’s Grade 4 students have improved nearly 10 points across all three categories since the 2009/10 school year, rising to the current level where about 80 per cent of all students are meeting or exceeding requirements for reading, writing, and numeracy. Local Grade 7 students scored at 68 per cent for reading, 72 per cent for writing, and 60 per cent for numeracy. These are significant increases in performance from 2009/13, when the figures were 53, 56, and 46 per cent respectively. A slightly higher percentage of Chilliwack students are getting their Dogwood every year, but progress is slow. Fiveyear completion rates stood at 69 per cent for all students in 2011/12, slightly higher for females than males. Among aboriginal students, five-year completions were more than 20 points behind the average. Average graduation rates among Chilliwack’s three public high schools have been steady or slowly rising for four years, but dropping for aboriginal students at Chilliwack secondary and GW Graham. Overall, 82 per cent of Chilliwack secondary seniors graduated last year, compared with 58 per cent of aboriginal students. At GW Graham, eight out of 10 seniors received their Dogwood, but only six out of 10 aboriginal students. At Sardis secondary, 78 per cent of seniors graduated last year, a figure that fell to 67 per cent among aboriginal students. Continued: FSA/ p7

Chilliwack radio listeners said they wanted “more hits” and that’s what they’re going to get. Classic hits will be the new format of a brand-new radio station for Chilliwack called 89.5 The Drive. The new station replaces rock station 89.5 The Hawk, in a bold format change driven by demographics, and an attempt to draw in more female listeners. Rebranding was underway in flurry of activity Friday in the Chilliwack Business Centre headquarters by The Drive staff and Fabmar Communications, with a raft of new signage and marketing materials. “We’re trying to offer something that would appeal to an even mix of male and females,” said station manager Kevin Gemmell. They’ve been working on the change for months, but kept it a secret from almost everyone, until last week.

Station manager Kevin Gemmell explains the format change at 89.5 The Drive as Dustin Hamel of Ace Signs and Awning unveils the station’s new logo. JENNIFER FEINBERG/ PROGRESS

“What we’ve done for the past four years is still important,” Gemmell said, referring to efforts to build and retain a loyal and local listening audience with 89.5 The Hawk. They started out playing a mix of classic and new rock with The Hawk, but discovered that listeners wanted even more classic rock in the mix. “The support was strong but what we found was that it really plateaued in terms

of potential,” said Gemmell. Hundreds of phone surveys later, over the past five months, and they were told that no radio station was playing what the listeners really wanted. In fact, one music style was being requested over all others. “Listeners said they wanted to hear more of the hits, specifically, more classic hits,” said Gemmell. “We listened to what they had to say and we have created a

completely new and different radio station for Chilliwack.” The Drive’s new PR materials feature images of classic hit-makers like Elton John and Madonna. During the announcement on-air at 10 a.m. they said anyone who liked the Hawk until now will be happy to know many of those classic artists will also be found on the The Drive’s new line-up. Asked if the changeover was driven by the inevitable competition with the only other local radio station in town, Star 98.3 FM, Gemmell acknowledged the competition, but insisted the real goal was ensuring local listeners are tuning in to a local radio station, and not losing momentum to Vancouver stations. “Local radio always needs to be the first choice for Chilliwack,” he said. The station that has been designed “by Chilliwack for Chilliwack” can be found online at 895TheDrive. com.

A business owner in Cultus Lake wants other merchants to watch out after his daughter’s business, Cafe Vanilla, was hit by a thief. “Enough is enough,� said Najib Abunnadi, owner of Beethoven’s Pizza. He’s talking about a recent PIN pad theft, valued at about $600. A man in his 40s walked in to Cafe Vanilla, located next door to his pizza restaurant, and while the clerk had her back turned to scoop the ice cream cone he ordered, he allegedly slowly dragged the unit into his hoodie pocket. The base was left on the counter after the incident, which occurred just before 7 p.m on June 22. The wireless unit was gone. Abunnadi captured the incident on video, and later turned it over to police. “Staff came running to me to say the machine had just been stolen. I thought it was a joke. When they realized half a minute later that it was gone, the guy was just outside eating his ice cream like nothing happened.� Adding insult to injury, the brand-new wireless PIN pad unit had just been installed — hours before it was stolen. “I’ve never seen the police respond to a call that fast on a Saturday,� Abunnadi said. “I think they take high-tech theft like this very seriously.� Abunnadi took action in recent years, installing surveillance equipment at both businesses. His pizza business has suffered break-ins of all kinds, including seven incidents of theft in one two-month period. “With this incident, the guy was handed the cone, he said thank you and walked out eating his ice cream.� They couldn’t identify which individual actually took the unit until they reviewed the video. Chilliwack RCMP officials say that wireless PIN pads do not store any personal or transaction data, and once called in to Interac, the unit is shut down. Some need a base unit

Floating homes, increased boat moorage, condominiums , a new restaurant and commercial space and a boardwalk into the Village are part of a proposal for a massive development at Harrison Marina. The site is on the west side of Harrison Lake, between the Yacht Club and the old federal wharf. There currently is moorage

at the site, but the comprehensive redevelopment plan would require an OCP text amendment. It would include 15 floating homes, two condominium buildings with 51 multi-family units, commercial space, a restaurant and community amenity space. The plans also include an allowance for an access channel to the Harrison Yacht Club. The plans have been sent for comments to the Village engineer, fire chief, APC, transportation ministry, school district and

the FVRD. A public hearing will be held at 7 pm. on July 8 at council chambers for amendments to the OCP and zoning bylaw amendments. The amendments were first read in council on June 3, and received a second reading on June 17. Andre Isakov, manager of planning and community services, said that a more detailed plan from the developer would be available to the public prior to the public hearing.

News Applications sought for Build Chilliwack BUILD from Front family cover approximately $6,000 in fees, including legal fees, land transfer tax, and mortgage interest during construction. “Our belief is that, if somebody’s invested financially, then they’re going to have a lot more ownership of it,” said Street. “This isn’t a hand out, this is a hand up. This is helping somebody that has those resources and foresight to have some finances, to take that next step, although they

wouldn’t have a down payment.” Street and Derksen have operated Summit Pacific Properties in Chilliwack for about three years, and have built ten homes. The two started Build Chilliwack as a way to give back. They are bearing all risk of the project, and will receive no revenue from it. “This is a part of who we are. We have a strong desire to be engaged in the community and help in ways that fit with who we are and what are strengths

are,” said Street. Derksen has gone on a house-building trip to Mexico, while Street was on the restorative justice board for two years. Both volunteer in the community. They’re modeling Build Chilliwack on a similar program in Kelowna, Project Build Society, which has operated for about five years and has resulted in numerous houses being built. “We’re doing this as a pilot for Chilliwack Community Services. We want to see how

Teapots not part of natural landscape TEAPOTS from Front Another reason for the teapot removal policy is environmental. Unfortunately, there are new trails in the park being created by people who are either hiding teapots or climbing trees to do so. “It’s about the potential for damage to the natural environment in the park,” he said. Plus there’s a rare orchid colony in the immediate area.

“The rare plants could also be decimated by the trampling effects of people walking offtrail,” said the park official. For those reasons, the contractor periodically removes the teapots. About 30 teapots were counted last time they were collected and removed. “I don’t think they’re all gone, but the effort will continue.” For anyone frustrated by removal, he said, they can keep

in mind the ‘pack it in, pack it out’ strategy suggested for park visitors. Another good one is “Leave no trace, take only pictures,” he added. “That’s the philosophy we’ve used for many years in BC parks, which favours leaving the park environment as natural as possible.”

Public Notice FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS

The City's Drinking Water Quality Assurance Program requires the flushing of water mains throughout the community. Flushing of water mains is a key component to maintaining our high level of water quality throughout the distribution system.

Some things are just better together.

You may experience changes to your tap water as a result of the water main flushing. These changes could consist of a brief reduction in pressure and/or possible sediment leading to discoloration; none of which are a health concern. These changes to your tap water are temporary, and will dissipate over time. For further information or to report extended low pressure problems or discoloration in your water, please contact the Public Works Department at 604.793.2810.

Happy holidays

The Canadian dollar is sinking. Gas prices have been going up for the past month. Banks are making noise about raising mortgage rates. The housing market is cooling. The weather seems changeable on the hour. It must be summer. July marks the traditional start of vacation season. Time to get away from it all. And with the ever-increasing gloom and doom that seems to drain our optimism and energy at a quickening pace, it’s never been more imperative to tune out and step back. At least for a stretch. Getting away from the workplace, turning down the busyness of our lives is an important change to routine. It reduces anxiety and stress, allows us a chance to recharge, maybe even refocus. Holidays make for happier, more motivated employees. But Canadian holiday entitlements lag behind those enjoyed by workers in many other countries. We get a minimum of 10 working days off depending on the province and tenure of employment. That’s supplemented by 5-10 public statutory holidays, like Canada Day. Australian workers get 20 working days off, plus 10 paid public holidays. Brazilians enjoy 22 working days off, plus a 33 per cent premium on top of their regular pay. Workers in Denmark get 25 work days off plus an additional nine public holidays. German workers get four weeks off plus nine-13 public holidays. In Finland, the minimum mandated holiday time is 30 days. Even workers in developing countries like India are granted 12 work days a year for holiday. But in the United States there’s absolutely no legal provision for mandated holiday time. Employees are completely at the mercy of their employer. Canadians may not feel we get enough holiday, but at least we get something. ~ Black Press

‘Harm reduction’ is starting to pay dividends Despite the stereotypical image of drug addicts shooting up in Vancouver’s grubby back alleys, there’s good news that overall illicit drug use is declining. And it has nothing to do with drug law enforcement, the “war on drugs”, or the federal government’s National Anti-Drug Strategy. This encouraging trend is all about the expanding harm reduction programs. Last month, the Urban Health Research Initiative of the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS released its report Drug Situation in Vancouver which detailed information on drug use, drug availability, HIV rates, and behaviours among the city’s most vulnerable drug addicts. The study looked at trends over the last 15 years. Overall, there has been a decline in illicit drug use with a dramatic drop in cocaine injection from 38.1 per

cent in 1996 to 6.9 per cent in 2011. Daily heroine injection has also declined. On the down side, there was an increase in the use of other drugs such as crack cocaine smoking, injection and non-injection crystal meth use, and prescription opioid injection. The use of these drugs peaked in 2007 but since then Margaret the use of all drugs EVANS mentioned has declined although the habit of crystal meth injection remains high. The good news about the overall downward trend is that addiction treatments and harm reduction programs are clearly connecting and having a critical impact. Methadone maintenance therapy went up from 11.7 per cent in 1996

to 53.3 per cent in 2011 with the concentrated trend in MMT occurring from 2008 to 2011, mainly because drug users were finding it easier to access treatment. In addition, the report stated that “The dramatic decline in syringe sharing among people who use illicit drugs in Vancouver can be largely attributed to the expansion of harm reduction programs in the city with 39.6 per cent of people reporting syringe borrowing in 1996 but only 1.7 per cent reporting syringe borrowing in 2011.” Along with that decrease has been a corresponding decrease in both HIV and HCV incidence rates with obvious public health benefits. “Drug trends in Vancouver are shifting, with fewer people injecting drugs and more people ceasing their use, a result of the innovative harm reduction and addiction

treatment programs implemented,” said Dr. Thomas Kerr, report co-author and UHRI co-director. “It is important policymakers at all levels of government take note of this evidence and focus efforts on approaches proven to be more effective. Continuing to invest in failed policies like the war on drugs does little to reduce health and social harms.” Those federal war-on-drugs policies have had minimal effect on readily available cheap drugs. From science research findings to the opinions of drug users on the street, harm reduction programs are what get things done. Insite, Vancouver’s safe injection site, is testimony to that. “Needle exchanges and the supervised injection facility have proven to save lives, but drug use trends are changing and policies and programs should reflect these changes,” said Lorna Bird, a drug user and member

of the Western Aboriginal Harm Reduction Society. “We need more harm reduction interventions, like safer crack smoking kits, supervised consumption facilities for people who smoke illicit drugs, and programs focused on at-risk youth.” The harm reduction facility, Insite, is not just a place for safe needle use. It is a gateway for addicts to get medical help and counselling to change their lives. Many Canadian cities need an Insite of their own yet the Harper government’s “Respect for Communities Act” will contain criteria making it very hard for other cities to launch similar programs. How counter-productive is that? Policymakers must accept that harm reduction programs work and provide the framework to make them happen across Canada.

Readers react to garden closure

Minter Gardens has been part of our family for many years. Very sad to hear this news. The years we lived in the area we had seasons tickets for the whole family. When our daughter got married she had her wedding photos taken in the gardens. Thank you Brian Minter for giving us these beautiful memories!

Gardens only two weeks ago. She absolutely loved it! She was snapping pictures every couple of minutes, trying to snap the beauty of each flower, petal, leaf, greenery and arrangement. She is an amazing cake artist, creating flowers out of sugar paste to look so real that you would have a tough time recognizing the real from the sugar created ones. Thank you for all your wonderful time and dedication to Minter Gardens.... it has made Chilliwack that much more beautiful. Wishing all the best in your future plans. Eleonore Balzer Isaak

I buy my mom a season’s pass for her and a friend every year, It’s her mental escape to go there and relax. Very sad news.

One of those things we just take for granted will always be there...took us years to visit (last year for family wedding) but we always knew we could go later.... :-(

It is very sad for us too, as our guests from Evergreen B&B love to go there. It was a highlight for them.

I spent many a day at the gardens, a beautiful relaxing way to spend the day. My great aunt introduced me to the beauty of gardening there. They both will be sorely missed.

Guilt won’t get people out of cars Most of the people who talk about getting other people out of their cars and using some other form of transportation are idealistic dreamers. Our society has evolved around the automobile over the past 100 years and that is reality. Most people have few, if any, reasonable options to the car and changing that is really extremely difficult if not economically impossible. The people driving their cars to work and on business are the contributing members of our society. They are the people that are paying the taxes, supporting their families and driving our economy. We need to do everything in our power to make life easier for these people. Constantly laying guilt trips

on our working people and taxing them at every turn has to stop. We need better highway systems and improvements to traffic flow and more and lesscostly parking. Paying for these improvements must be spread evenly across all segments of society. Improving the movement of goods and the people who are doing the work benefits our society as a whole so the costs should be evenly distributed. There are no easy answers to our transportation problems but making villains out of our working people and “taxing them blind” is not the answer. Jack Carradice Chilliwack

valley. Sandra Steur

That is very sad news.... I remember when Minter Gardens was first opened and have watched all the updates they have done each year. It really was a local garden to be proud of. Marrion Hamm

Having had the great pleasure of working for Brian and Faye both at the Country Garden store location and for special occasions at Minter Gardens, I must say that I am very saddened to hear this news. I no longer live in B.C., but know on any visits in the future I would have planned a visit to this unique and amazingly beautiful location. I am sure it will be sadly missed by all. Denise Holloran, Oxford, Nova Scotia

My young children and I are very saddened to hear this news. It is our favourite place to go. It is an under-appreciated gem of Chilliwack. My eight-yearold daughter wrote this today: “I am just a kid. I want you to try and save Minter Gardens. Yell MINTER GARDENS at the top of your lungs and if they decide to keep going I will be very happy.”

Catch a Giants game this season I am a proud player for the Chilliwack Giants Midget division team. In previous years I have played, I have been disappointed with the support of the public. There is plenty of support from players’ parents, but it would be amazing to see more support from the general public. Take pride in your city’s football team and come out to games on the weekend starting on the Labour Day weekend. I challenge readers to make it out to one game this coming season to support us. If that can be achieved, that would be amazing! Derrick Huizenga

Donation helps women sleep a little easier Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

A donation of brand-new mattresses to Ruth & Naomi’s Mission is making a big difference in the lives of the female residents already. The $2,500 in funding for the downtown Chilliwack mission came from the Soroptimists International of Chilliwack. “One of our mandates is to assist women and girls in local communities around the world,” said

Soroptimist president Anita Rogers. “We found out this was a particular need they had at Ruth & Naomi’s.” The six women currently in the Step Up program had been sleeping on foam mattresses, of the type sometimes used in camping. They are much more comfortable now, and more likely to get a good night’s sleep thanks to the Soroptimists. “We really appreciate the new mattresses, and the support,” said Ruth & Naomi’s Mission executive

director Bill Raddatz. The foamies had been giving some of the residents back aches. “They’re okay as a back-up, but not for more than one night.” The local Soroptimist group is the program’s main sponsor. They kickstarted the Ladies’ Tea program last year with funding, which features a range of craft activities for the female program participants over a cup of tea. Transitional housing services in the Step Up program are in addition

to the drop-in services for shelter, food and clothes offered at the mission, and those at risk of homelessness. Stage two housing offers a safe space to get off the streets, to get their lives together, detox, nutrition, life skills training, counselling, as well as a place to access or have visits with their children. The facility for women is on the second floor, with capacity for 20 residents. jfeinberg@theprogress.com

UFV grads find passion to take on the world The University of the Fraser Valley sent another batch of its best and brightest out into the world, as more than 2,000 students graduated and more than half of them attended Convocation ceremonies, crossing the stage recently at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. UFV president Mark Evered addressed the grads at all three ceremonies. He acknowledged friends, families, and guests, and welcomed the graduating students to the ranks of UFV alumni.  He said it was important to have celebrations like Convocation because they highlight the benefits that UFV graduates bring to their communities.  “We will all benefit from the knowledge, skills, critical thinking, and creativity of these graduates. Their success will make our communities, indeed our world, healthier, safer, stronger, and wealthier, not just in an economic sense but also

in the richness of the social and cultural development they will inspire.” Student speakers also shared their wisdom at each of the ceremonies.  Laurie Schulz, a member of the first graduating class from the Master of Social Work degree program, reminded her fellow graduates on June 13 that education is not just about preparing to do something, but also about preparing to be someone.  “Take note, specifically on graduation day, of how many times you’re asked, ‘So what now? What are you are going to do?’” she said. “Some of us may have a clear, direct answer while some of us may have more complicated ones. Some of us may wince or avoid such a question because of the anxiety it causes to recognize we now need to do something. I’d invite you to consider that what we do is not the whole story. While we

acknowledge the education we have achieved here and anticipate the opportunities it provides, I’d like to also challenge us to think beyond what we will now go ‘do’… and deeply consider who we will go ‘be’ as we travel the road ahead. Today, I offer you all sincere congratulations and encourage you to take a deep breath, enjoy this moment, and celebrate by reaching deep and being great.” Multi-award winner Sol Sun was the student speaker for the College of Arts ceremony. He spoke about the importance of finding a passion for what one pursues. “I wasn’t the best student in high school, because I didn’t really care about what I was learning. Here in university, I’ve discovered something I am truly passionate about and am intrinsically motivated to pursue. I believe that Continued: UFV/ p11

Terry Fox Foundation, Chilliwack Airport Coffee Shop flying high after ‘Pie Day’ success After a very tiresome day on June 25, there was a very small coffee shop staff in Chilliwack who knew they had made a very strong impact on the global community around them. The Good sisters, Judi, Jacqueline and Tracey, along with their staff had just completed their 3rd annual Pie Day in memory of Terry Fox’s mother, Betty. One hundred per cent of every pie sold on this day went straight to The Terry Fox Foundation and its search for a cure. Last year, they raised over $3,000 for the Foundation, and were aiming to get over the $4,000 mark this year. What a surprise it was for the Good sisters, Terry Fox supporters, and pie lovers when they found out what success they really had. In total, the Chilliwack Airpor t Coffee Shop raised over $5,445.23 with over 336 slices of pie and 216 whole pies being sold. For a small coffee shop that relies on a single oven to bake all their pies, it was an over whelming response. The Good sisters took to Facebook to express their gratitude for the support that they and the Terr y Fox Foundation received: “We cannot thank everyone enough, this year was a record year. Tuesday was a very emotional, overwhelming and fantastic day. Our pie sales wouldn’t have been a success without all of you.” Rolland Fox, Terry’s father, also came out to Pie Day and assisted the Good sisters throughout the day.

Pomp and circumstance at this year’s UFV convocation UFV from page 10 whatever we do, we should love it and be able to talk all day long about it. Discovering something that truly ignites my interest has, without a doubt, changed the course of my life, and I really hope that you’ve all discovered something that you feel strongly about, and I encourage you to continue to pursue that, no matter how difficult the path may seem.” Sun is graduating with an honours major in psychology, and he was president of the Psychology Student Association. His goal is to attain a PhD and become a researcher in the field of cognitive psychology/neuroscience. He will be attending graduate school at the University of Toronto in September.   Derek Froese, who earned a Bachelor of Computer Information Systems degree and spoke at the Friday

afternoon ceremony on June 13, told his fellow graduates that they should look for life lessons from those whose time left is limited. He said that people who are dying don’t wish they’d worked more, made more money, or had bigger homes. “In fact, pursuing simplicity and minimalism can decrease complication and stress,” he noted, saying that those who are dying tend to regret living according to others’ expectations, working too hard, not having the courage to express their feelings, and not spending more time with the people who are most important to them.  “Perhaps heeding the words of those who’ve gone before us can provide us with a more value-laden and abundant life.”    UFV recognized several award winners and conferred honorary degrees at its

Fraser Valley

demic achievement in their respective faculties: Marin Beck (Arts —Humanities); Sol Sun (Arts — Social Sciences); Kelly McLeod (Science); Mitchell Pfau (Professional Studies); Kimberley Fox (Health Sciences). UFV’s Teaching Excellence award went to communications instructor Linda Pardy, and the Research Excellence award went to chemistry instructor Noham Weinberg. Larry Stinson, chair of the UFV Board of

Governors, was recognized for his leadership and six years of service on the board, two of them as chair. A brand new award was bestowed upon Bachelor of Arts graduate Surjit Atwal, who persevered and earned his degree despite the challenges presented by his cerebral palsy. The Surjit Atwal R e m a r k a b l e Achievement award will be given to future graduates who have also overcome obstacles during their education. 

The Betty Urquhart Community Ser vice award was given to Brittany Clough of Chilliwack for her Beautiful, You project and to Veronica Back of Mission, for her work with the New Heights Church’s Street Hope outreach lunch and dinner program.

Senior Living

We make difficult times easier for you and your family.

TRAVEL IDEAS FOR ACTIVE SENIORS

Those who have said goodbye to the work-a-day grind now have many hours to settle down and relax. People who have continually put off vacations in lieu of work responsibilities may now have all the time they need to explore the world.

• We will help you connect with community resources. • Professional after-loss counselling program • Arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home.

Traveling for seniors can be rewarding and relaxing. Those with a substantial retirement nest egg have numerous destinations at their disposal. Mature vacationers travel more frequently and stay longer than any other age group.

Did you know?

Arthritis is a debilitating condition that affects mobility within a person's joints. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis. It is estimated that there are around 50 million people in America with doctor-diagnosed arthritis or a similar joint disease. There are about 4 million Canadians who have arthritis, and it is estimated that, by 2026, more than 6 million Canadians age 15 and older will have arthritis.

Seniors can find several travel advantages at their disposal. Also, thanks to special senior discounts, travel may be even more affordable than first expected. While certain destinations are not always practical for certain age brackets, there are many places to which seniors can visit comfortably and enjoy a wealth of memories. Theme parks: Although theme parks may seem carved out entirely for the adventure-seekers, there are many other more placid activities that would appeal to those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground rather than looping through the air on a rocket-propelled coaster. With animal preserves, water parks, fine dining, and a bevy of hotels either in the park or directly on the outskirts, theme parks provide many activities for older travelers.

Beach resorts: Provided flying is medically safe, a beachside vacation can be the ideal trip for seniors looking for the utmost in relaxation. For those who have passports, the possibilities are endless.

Cruising: Cruising is a preferred vacation choice for the 50+ set because it offers the convenience of an all-inclusive package and transportation all in one. With the myriad activities offered on board, cruises are a versatile vacation option for seniors. Guided tours: Seniors who want to experience a piece of history can sign up for tour packages backed by reputable companies. The tours may involve train or bus travel, and various attractions will be visited. RV trips: Another self-contained vacation that is entirely up to the people traveling is vacationing by recreational vehicle. Seniors can customize their routes depending on which areas they want to see. Companies enable people to rent an RV so they needn’t worry about the expense of buying one outright. However, should RV traveling become addictive, there always is the option of buying a camper later on. Setting an itinerary and then establishing the pace enables travelers to tour the country or cross the border as desired. From beaches to national parks, many areas offer RV hook-up areas and amenities. Exotic tour: Seniors who were never able to afford or spare the time for an extensive vacation may now want to visit those exotic locations that have beckoned for years. Now could be the time to book a ticket for Europe and visit all of the cities that have made the history books. Those looking for even more adventure can travel to the South Pacific and explore tropical islands. Others may want to go “down under” and experience the rugged Outback or the culture of Australian city centers.

Baby Boomers

The Baby Boomer generation is one of the most influential demographics in the world today. Boomers represent roughly 28 percent of the total population of the United States, according to “Baby Boomer” magazine, and this means they are the largest generational segment as well as the single largest economic group in the United States. They hold 70 percent of the U.S. wealth and are expected to inherit millions of dollars over the course of the next 20 years. Baby boomers comprise a population of adults who were born between 1946 and 1964. That makes boomers people who are between 49 and 67 years old. Many of these baby boomers have grown to be household names and influential individuals in all areas of business. Actor Brad Pitt is a baby boomer, as is President of the United States Barack Obama. Director Peter Jackson, singer k.d. lang and business mogul Donald Trump all belong to the baby boomer generation. Here are some additional facts and figures about baby boomers: • Baby boomers have more discretionary income than any other age group. • Baby boomers own 80 percent of the money in savings and loan associations. • Baby boomers spend more money than other groups. • Baby boomers account for nearly half of all consumer demand. Baby boomers have been known to have an unprecedented impact on American culture, society and the economy, and that influence is bound to continue for several more years.

With a bevy of free time and fewer restrictions holding them back, seniors could be ready for the next great travel adventure.

Community

UsedEverywhere.com comes to Fraser Valley Black Press

Long before she became the marketing director for UsedEverywhere. com, Lacey Sheardown was a borderline-obsessive user of the classifieds site. “I was always on there — I was an avid user,” she says with a laugh. Her Victoria home is filled with furniture and other unique items she bought or found for free on UsedEverywhere. “So when I got this job, my friends were like, ‘Yeah, that makes sense.’” But what drew Sheardown to the site was more than the satisfaction of treasure hunting. Unlike other classifieds sites out there, this was a place where she could look for a new coffee table without stumbling across an ad for a casual NSA encounter at the local park. “We’re actually family friendly,” she says. Across more than 80 cities and towns, the site has a real, live monitoring team, checking ads every hour of the day, ensuring quality content and dependable transactions. “Your kid can surf our site and you can be comfortable with it.” UsedEverywhere.com is now owned by Black Press. It has as many unique visitors in Canada as Craig’s List and is the number one free classified site in Ottawa, Victoria and PEI. The site includes an informative blog and Facebook page. As much as the site is about buying and selling, it’s also about connecting people, building community, on and off-line, with a flesh-and-blood UsedEverywhere community coordinator working locally. Following the flooding in Alberta, the site encouraged Albertans to donate items for flood victims on its four sites in the province: UsedCalgary.com, UsedRedDeer. com, UsedCentralAlberta.com and UsedEdmonton.com. You might find the community coordinator at local events; they are also involved with projects such as a car and booster seat recycling program that took place last month (they recycled 83 expired seats) as well as a new initiative in the next

month to work with local business, allowing them to advertise on the site and connect with buyers. Their community coordinators even look for personal opportunities to help locally through the Angels program. Last year, for instance, they helped a Vancouver woman undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer by finding breast milk for her baby. Sheardown says community involvement is a big component of the company’s DNA. “It’s a social responsibility,” she says. “Our site is about reusing, reducing and recycling and so being a part of the community and helping in other ways is connected that.” Even though the site has been embraced mostly by professional mothers like Sheardown, she says it appeals to other demographics as well. “My husband is on his site, on his phone, hitting refresh every 10 minutes,” she says laughing. “We think he has a bit of a problem.” So what’s the coolest thing she got on UsedEverywhere? It’s a large stereo cabinet that was brought over from Europe after the Second World War. “They had the clothes on their backs, 20 bucks and this giant, enormous stereo cabinet. And we got it for free!” It’s the bonus of hearing a story or meeting new people that Sheardown appreciates about using the site. “There’s always history with the item or you meet an interesting person,” she says. “Hearing those stories is great.” Go to UsedFraserValley.com to find just what you’re looking for or list an item to give away or sell.

FROM THE DESK OF OUR INTERIM MANAGER: FIENY VAN DEN BOOM What a wonderful community we live in! We as Chamber want to be responsible corporate citizens of Chilliwack and are looking out to make sure that the next generation can continue to live, eat, play and prosper like we do now. So do other members of our community; Nestle Waters Canada, have over 30 people from Chilliwack employed at their plant in Hope. Because they want to give back to this great community, NestlÊ Waters Canada has donated $22,000.00 to the City to install public spaces recycling stations as well as a quantity of street benches for use in the City’s historic downtown core, including its Business Improvement Area (BIA). Recycling and waste bins were installed in early June along several downtown streets. (Pictures on

our Facebook page); featuring large pictograms on each container to help consumers determine where to deposit their recyclables and garbage. We also received overwhelming support at our 10th Annual “Business on the Green� Golf Tournament in partnership with Tourism Chilliwack on Thursday June 20th at Cultus Lake Golf course. Despite the pouring rain at the start of the day (the sun came out later in the afternoon) we had 123 participating golfers on the green who all had a great time. Thanks to our sponsors who made this event a great success. We couldn’t have done it without them: Envision Financial, 89.5 The Hawk, Chilliwack Progress, Meadow Valley Meats, Chilliwack Times, Star

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

One mom’s journey from couch to kick boxing It’s Tuesday night at Baek’s Tae Kwon Do. Music is blaring and women are practicing their kick-boxing moves in front of a mirrored wall. Punch. Kick. Punch. Kick. Carolina Little seems the most proficient, and the other women are looking to her for guidance. She smiles as she instructs, and it is obvious to the onlooker that she loves where she is and what she’s going. Funny thing is, if you’d told her 10 years ago that this was in her future, she’d have thought you were nuts.

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

Carolina loves her kids a lot. Seventeen years ago, she didn’t have any. Carolina and her husband, Stafford lived in the Argentinian capital city of Buenos Aires, a bustling city of 2.5 million. She had a successful career as a radio and television broadcaster and her husband worked in the oil industry. Sixteen years ago, Agustin changed everything. Her first child came into the world, and Carolina did what many moms do. She put her career on the back-burner and stayed home to care for the kids. After Agustin came Joaquin and Julian, three sons that became her world. Carolina dove head first into the full-time mom thing — making breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Dropping kids off and picking them up from school. Cleaning the house and buying the groceries. “Not thinking any more about myself,” she laughed. In her downtime (don’t laugh mommies), she watched TV. What were Ross and Rachel up to today? Had Meredith Grey and Dr. McDreamy finally hooked up? The family moved to Canada in 2002, first to Calgary and later to Edmonton — a big change on the surface, but really, Carolina was just doing the same things on a different continent. Still preparing meals and taking kids here and there. Still catching reruns of Friends, Grey’s Anatomy and Hawaii 5-0. Still taking little time for

herself. One day six years ago, completely out of the blue, Joaquin said he wanted to try Tae Kwon Do. “His best friend was doing it, so he wanted to,” she said. “We were living in Edmonton then, about a month away from moving to Chilliwack. When we got to Chilliwack, we went to have supper at Jackson’s (Steak House), and this Tae Kwon Do place was right next door.” The family finished their meal, then walked next door to Baek’s Tae Kwon Do Academy. Inside, they watched a class of kids go through their paces under the watchful eye of master Woon Kook Baek. Carolina signed up Agustin and Joaquin the next morning. She brought them to classes three times a week, and, with two-year-old Julian sitting in a stroller by her side, she watched. She helped Agustin and Joaquin hone their technique, and grinned proudly as they got their first, second, third and fourth belts. No parent was more supportive, and Woon Kook

Baek noticed. “He kept asking, ‘What about you? Would you like to try?’” Carolina recalled. What he didn’t know is that she loathed exercise, and went well out of her way to avoid it. “I was completely allergic to exercise, never going to the gym or anything like that,” she explained. “But he kept asking and eventually agreed to take one class. And I got in there with the kicking and the punching and the releasing of the stress, and I fell in love with it.” While Stafford stayed home with Julian, Carolina started going to Tae Kwon Do classes with Agustin and Joaquin. One class turned into two, then 20, then 100. Carolina got her green belt. Then her purple. Along the way, she started helping Woon Kook Baek run the place. The outgoing mom was the perfect counterpoint to the quiet teacher, the Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid type who had little interest in the business side of business. He was content to teach, and Carolina was well suited to handle the things he

couldn’t. When someone had a question or problem, it was her they started going to. “I was helping more and more, and by the time my third son started Tae Kwon Do, we were here all of the time,” she said. “It was like our second home, and sometimes my kids would have to wait for me because I was working.” Carolina was the de-facto business manager, doing it all voluntarily. “But he wanted to give something back to me, and he knew I always wanted to do a class for ladies,” she said. “So he gave me the use of the gym for free.” Carolina talked to her friends, and, without any advertising, got 18 out to her first class in May. Sara Kouwenhoven was among them. “I’m like her, where I got into this rut and I was just sitting on a couch,” Sara said. “I needed motivation to get off my butt and actually do something for myself, and this sounded like a good idea.” Sara’s daughter took Tae Kwon Do in Coquitlam, so she had some idea what she was in for.

“But that first class, almost killed me,” she laughed. “There’s lots of cardio, punching and kicking. Lots of sweating.” But lots of socializing too, which was key. Carolina knew she needed a tailored approach to her class. A little less structure and focus on the technical aspects of Tae Kwon Do. More focus on cardio and kick boxing. A lot more talking and laughing. Something women would want to come to. “That’s what struck me at that first class was how social it was,” Sara said. “And that made me want to come back.” Nearly two months later the formula has been proven to work. Of the 18 who attended that first class, 10 have stuck with it. Sara, a woman who, by her own admission, hated exercise with a passion, finds herself itching to get to the gym Tuesday and Thursday mornings. “It’s good to be here and do it, but if you don’t want to be here and do it, then you’re just going through

the motions and you’re not getting any benefit,” Sara said. “I’m like Carolina where I never worked out much before this. But now, Tuesday mornings I’m excited to get to class. I cannot wait to see my friends, get a workout and release some stress.” Carolina and Sarah agree, there are lots of women who know they should do something to improve their health. But it’s got to be a want-to and not a have-to situation. “The nicest thing about this is, the class is a nice size,” Sara said. “I’ve tried other classes before where you’re jostling for space with 30 other women. And I know how intimidating it can be to go work out at a gym.” “I think it’s so much fun coming to a place like this, and if I miss any of my classes for any reason, I’m grouchy,” Carolina added. “That’s what I want for the women in my class. I want them to look forward to coming here and I want them to have fun while they’re here. I want this place to have the same affect on their lives that it’s had on mine.” To get more info, contact Carolina at 604-824-0660.

NLL lacrosse lands in Langley After a nine-year absence, the National Lacrosse League is returning to the Great Vancouver area. The Vancouver Stealth will play out of the Langley Events Centre starting in 2014. The team is relocating from Everett, Washington, with the move getting unanimous support from the NLL board of governors Thursday. “From an Everett standpoint, we had four very successful years on the floor, and reasonable years of fan support but the growth didn’t seem to be at a level that we expected and would have really needed to sustain the team,” said Doug Locker, the Stealth’s president and general manager. “We looked at what was the next logical move for the franchise and it was kind of a natural looking at the Lower Mainland,” he added. The Vancouver Ravens played in the NLL from 2002 to 2004 before folding. The

team played out of Rogers Arena. The NLL has been looking to return to the Lower Mainland for a number of years. In 2011, the LEC hosted a preseason game between the Stealth and Toronto Rock, which filled the 5,200-seat facility to capacity. Another preseason game was held in 2012, this time with 4,100 fans on hand. In May, the Stealth needed a different venue to host the NLL Champion’s Cup with their home arena, Comcast Arena, booked that weekend. The game was held at the LEC with just a few weeks notice, and it once again sold out. A few weeks later, Locker said the team began having serious discussions about permanently relocating. “We had two great experiences playing in Langley, where the atmosphere was just electric,” Locker said. “It has been in the backs of our minds since

The team maintains the same ownership. Denise and Bill Watkins have owned the team since the end of the 2007 season.

The league consists of nine teams in two divisions with the Stealth, Calgary, Edmonton, the Colorado Mammoth and Minnesota Swarm in the west and the East Division consisting of Toronto, Buffalo Bandits, Philadelphia Wings and Rochester Knighthawks.

we hosted the exhibition game (in 2011),” said Jared Harman, the LEC’s director of business development. “And obviously the lacrosse market has been looking for it for a while.” This is the organization’s fourth home. From 2000 to 2003, they were the Albany Attack and from 2004 to 2009, they were the San Jose Stealth. NLL commissioner George Daniel said the move from San Jose was based on the hope the Stealth would be a regional team for the Seattle area. “Unfortunately, while there were some loyal fans, the team’s attendance just never grew,” he said. “While we are sad for the Stealth’s loyal fans (in Everett), there just weren’t enough of them.” Teams play a 16-game season which runs from January until April. According to the NLL website, the team averaged 4,194 fans per game for a total of 33,475 fans over eight home games. The league average

DEPUTAN, Nestor Paul August 17, 1937 June 26, 2013 It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Nestor Deputan. Celebration of life to be held the week of July 8th. Details to follow in Thursday’s paper. Love his family.

8700 Young Rd. Chilliwack 604-792-0051 www.chilliwackalliance.bc.ca office@chilliwackalliance.bc.ca

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Murray Ernest Nelles. He leaves to mourn his wife, Karen, sons Kurtis and Kole, his mother Norma, sister Ruth (Larry) and brother Stuart. He was predeceased by his sister Chris and his father Keith. He also leaves behind his in-laws Ed and Judy Hopko and nieces and nephews Gillian (Trevor), Karl (Michelle), Adam, Jack, Samantha and Andi as well as many friends and coworkers. His best friends Dick and Tony will surely miss him. Murray was full of life, he loved woodworking and was currently making planter boxes to raise money for the M.S. Society. He enjoyed riding his bike, walks with his family and dogs and spending time with family and friends. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him. There will be no service by request. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the M.S. Society of Canada or to any children’s charity.
