Stubborn fire keeps crews busy

No one was injured after a minivan plowed into a donair shop at Eagle Landing in Chilliwack Wednesday. Police were investigating the incident, which occurred around 4:30 p.m., as The Progress went to press. The van smashed through the front entrance and came to rest completely inside the building.

Firefighters from four fire halls were onscene tackling a feed mill fire on Simpson Road in Chilliwack on Tuesday. Neighbours said they heard an explosion and saw what appeared to be a “huge dust cloud” on Simpson near Unsworth Road at about 11 a.m. A hole in the east wall of the building was visible as a result of the fire. Fire crews were dispatched from several fire halls in Chilliwack. Upon arrival they reported smoke coming from the roof and vents of an industrial feed mill. They also found flames and smoke coming from vents and the attic. “The fire was very difficult to extinguish due to restricted access to the interior of the machinery spaces and the attic,” said assistant chief Jim MacDonald. The mill sustained heavy fire and smoke damage. There were no reports of injuries. Fire crews were back at the mill on Wednesday, dousing a few stubborn hot spots after smoke was seen coming from the building again. This is the third time in the past few years that fighters have been called to incidents at the mill.

She started praying. “I was a mess, and I certainly believe in divine intervention,” she said. “I was just waiting for my husband to get torn up.” That thought crossed Brian’s mind as well. “Oh yeah! This cat was hungry and he meant business,” he said. “He stared me down and when he took a couple steps towards me, I thought it was going to be a fight.” Then, the cat left. Moments later a jogger came up the trail. The Johnsons had called 9-1-1 and were advised to come

One of Chilliwack’s most popular hiking spots was evacuated and shut down Wednesday morning after several people came across an aggressive cougar. Lori and Brian Johnson were heading up Teapot Hill around 11 a.m. with their chihuahua on a leash. They were nearing the top when Lori heard a rustling in the bushes next to her. Thinking it was a rabbit, she was stunned to see the cougar looking back at her, no more than two feet away.

Brian turned around, grabbed a couple sticks and handed the dog to Lori. While she slowly retreated up the hill, waving the sticks at the cougar, the animal stood its ground. “At first it was pretty scary, and I had to collect my thoughts and think, ‘How do I deal with this?’” he recalled. “My first thought was, ‘Do I throw these sticks at him?’ But I didn’t want to make him mad. He wasn’t scared of me at all.” Lori reached the top and realized she was trapped, with a fence

down the hill in one group, gathering anyone else they came across. On the way down, they saw three more people with a dog running loose. They yelled at them to get their pooch on a leash. By the time they reached the fork in the trail, RCMP and conservation officers were on the way up, and they heard about another hiker, with a dog, who’d seen the cougar, panicked, ran away and been chased by the cat. Sgt. Steve Jacobi from the Conservation Officer Service (COS) said the cougar was spotted six times on the trail.

He and other officers searched the area, looking for something the cougar may have been protecting — recently downed prey for instance. They found nothing. “It’s not protecting anything and there’s not a lot of prey in area. Some small rabbits, but not much of a deer population,” Jacobi noted. “We get cougars moving through that area, but when they encounter people they usually run away.” His best explanation, this cougar is too young to know any better.

Harrison Lake lagoon gets a Fraser Health warning Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Fancy a dip in the old lagoon on Harrison beach over the long weekend? You may want to pause and read the warning first, posted near the swimming area by Village of Harrison Hot Springs officials. “Warning: water does not meet Fraser Health standards for swimming or wading until further notice.” A high bacterial count is to

blame, and it happens periodically when they have prolonged bouts of hot weather, said Harrison chief administrative officer Ian Crane. “It doesn’t happen every year. But it’s definitely not the first time.” Fraser Health officials treat the lagoon of the fresh water lake like a swimming pool, testing the water quality on a regular basis. “Because of the heat last week, the coliform bacteria levels for wading and bathing were exceeded,” said Crane. “It’s caused by the water fowl swimming around

in there.” Fraser Health did not order Village officials to close the lagoon as a result of the test results showing elevated bacterial levels, but they were required to inform the public of the situation. “Which we did,” said Crane. It’s hoped levels will go down as temperatures decrease. The lagoon was tested again on July 30, but no results were available. How about recent reports on social media about leeches?

“There was a report on the Internet. There may be. It’s a natural body of water.” How about Swimmer’s Itch? “We have signs posted about that as well.” The summer nuisance called Swimmer’s Itch is caused by tiny snail larvae that are found the fowl feces that burrow into the skin. Outdoor shower facilities are also available on the beach to help prevent the itchy skin condition. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

Slow Food Cycle Tour draws a crowd Alina Konevski The Progress

Cynthia Stiffon, owner of Willow Creek Farm, welcomed waves of cyclists onto her cabernet sauvignon vineyard in Greendale this past Sunday. Her four-year-old organic vines will finally produce grapes this year, which means that she’ll soon send them off for processing and register the farm as the Willow Creek Winery. This was a pleasant surprise to guests as they sat by the vines in shaded lounge chairs, sipping on wine and nibbling on local cheeses. The 600 cyclists that showed up for the Slow Food Cycle Tour in Chilliwack on July 28 could not have asked for a sunnier day. Families and friends cycled along the often empty roads of Chilliwack’s farm country, leisurely stopping at interest points along the way to get to know local farmers and artisans a little better. “It was the busiest year that we’ve ever had, and the farmers were very encouraged and tired at the end of the day,” said Vanessa Oddy, Tourism Chilliwack’s online communication manager. As in previous years, most visitors were from the greater Vancouver area, but this year there were more people from Chilliwack than before. “It really opened our community up to people from afar, and showed what we have to offer in our community,” said Oddy.

of cyclists, the 24-km route never felt crowded. People were comfortably distributed between the 15 stops. One such stop was JMC Farms, a family dairy on South Sumas Road, where nine-year-old Vancouverite Matthew Yuen loved the calfs. “They were so cute, and one of them tried to eat my shirt,” he said. Yuen was a little more apprehensive about the turkey, and stared at it for a long time before cautiously approaching for a closer look. His friend, 11-year-old

Samantha Choo, especially liked the giant air pillow at the Chilliwack Corn Maze she visited earlier in the day. Samantha’s dad, Wayne, didn’t know what to expect from his first time on the tour, and was surprised to discover there were so many dairy farms in Chilliwack. “It’s fun,” he said of the tour. “It’s definitely good for the family to get out and see this area. I’ve driven by Chilliwack, but never stopped to enjoy the scenery.” Over at Abundant Acre Family Farm, farmers

Cara and Andy Abrahams shared their love of growing good food sustainably with visiting cyclists. The Abrahams switched to farming full-time five years ago after their ever-expanding backyard garden began producing great vegetables. “We just got good practice having a bigger and bigger backyard garden,” said Cara. The family now runs a CSA (community supported agriculture) program off of their 1.5 acre organic farm lot, delivering over 30 varieties of vegetables direct to program sub-

scribers in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. “There’s so much interest in local food. We don’t have trouble finding customers for the CSA,” said Cara. And at the Greendale Pottery & Country Guest House, visitors enjoyed a catered lunch in the garden under the lilting sounds of a saxophone. Potter Holly McKeen led tours through her studio and showroom, while husband Ken carried trays of meatball samples and explained how the family raises black Angus cattle. Continued: TOUR/ p20

Giant hogweed can make skin itch, blister and burn for up to two days after contact with its sap and exposure to sunlight. This is the time of year when the noxious weed, said to be on the rise in the Lower Mainland, goes to seed, carried on the wind and down waterways. “For the past few years Fraser Valley Regional District has been hard at work controlling the plant from getting firmly established in this region,” says Stacey Barker, FVRD’s manager of Environmental Services. They field several calls a day about it, and have found it in two Chilliwack areas this year. The towering hogweed plant with its white, umbrella-shaped flowers and spiked leaves on hollow stalks can produce up to a whopping 50,000 seeds a year. “Most of the plants we are seeing though are in the Ryder Lake area and along Chilliwack Lake Road,” said Barker. The plant has been in the media, which has been effective at increasing awareness about the plant and the concerns associated with the skin condition it causes called phytophotodermatitis, due to its corrosive sap. FVRD crews have eradicated individual plants, or small patches of hogweed, in locations across the region.  Staff painstakingly remove the seed heads with the utmost care, digging up the plants, and advising landowners on safety and removal methods, since landowners are responsible for removing it. Many of the reports are false alarms. When they check it turns Continued: HOG/ p6

Funland is five acres near Cultus Lake devoted to the wonderful world of imaginative play. The attraction once known as Santa’s Funland has re-branded under the simpler name Funland, and opened without too much fanfare on July 1. “It really is the best way to get a child outside playing,” confides owner Wendy Croshaw. Funland is geared to the 2-10 age group, and the playtime choices are wildly varied. There’s a new zipline, big-wheel drifter bikes and a giant maze that’s about 50 square feet. There are little paddle boats in the water, and a 9-hole mini golf course. “It’s all about imagi-

Logging firm could have done more: Audit Alina Konevski The Progress

A logging company and the government should have better communicated with residents in the Chilliwack River Valley about harvesting in an endangered species habitat, an investigation has found. Last year, residents of the Post Creek subdivision, off of Chilliwack River Road, fought an intent by Tamihi Logging

to cut trees in an area that is home to the spotted owl. Despite a protest vigil and multiple formal complaints by the Post Creek Ratepayers Association (PCRA), Tamihi Logging received the goahead to harvest. Industry auditor Forest Practices Board recently revealed that both the logger and the government missed opportunities to consult with local residents.

“They complied with the law, and they actually did more than the law basically requires, but in some cases that’s not enough,� said FPB chair Al Gorley. “Although we don’t have any authority to tell people what to do, we kind of expect people to read the situation and do what’s necessary. We felt they could have done more in that case.� According to FPB, the logger and the Ministry of

Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operation should have proactively approached residents before laying out the cutblocks in the field. They should also have informed the public immediately when they detected a spotted owl in the area, rather than letting residents discover it on their own. Finally, Tamihi Logging should have better explained why it backpedaled on a Continued: AUDIT/ p13

Dogs and horses can also be attacked by legions of the small red ants, which are hard to distinguish from the many other ant species found in B.C. “It’s really their behaviour which is the defining characteristic,” she said. “This is the latest public safety concern for

arrived in potted garden plants from Europe. Grenz advises homeowners to carefully check any new garden plants, compost or top soil for ants before adding it. European fire ants have formed more aggressive colonies in Canada than in their native Europe, according to a report of B.C.’s Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group. It says they have potential to spread inland to Hope and throughout the B.C. coast as far north as Prince Rupert and warns they can make yards “unusuable” for children and pets.

R AESIDE

Smartphone addiction can prove costly

They’re called smartphones, but the way some people use them is anything but smart – giving us all legitimate cause for concern about public safety. A new poll that shows that 64 per cent of adults in B.C. own a smartphone also reveals, more disturbingly, that about 18 per cent of those who do consider themselves “strongly addicted to the device.” Predictably, the majority who placed themselves in that particular category describe their addiction as ‘manageable.’ It’s a rare addict, after all, who acknowledges his or her addiction – whatever it is – is galloping out of control. That all changes, of course, when the addict is faced with incontrovertible evidence – usually some severe crisis or tragedy – that calls for an immediate change in behaviour. The question is, should we, as a society, be expected to pay the price of such a crisis or tragedy? Particularly when it’s something like an accident caused by driving without due care and attention? Smartphones offer entertainment and information through a multitude of apps, and they have very practical uses in terms of communication, particularly in emergencies, that have, so far, merely scratched the surface of their potential. But it’s no news they also function as a distraction. According to the recent poll, those who describe themselves as addicted estimate they spend an average of 2.5 of their waking hours staring at their diminutive keypads and screens. If that 2.5 hours were spent in one block of time, it might be a different matter – but it’s spread throughout the day, usually while the users are multi-tasking in some way. We should all be more aware of the imminent dangers such devices present – and to make sure that we are actually controlling them – and not the other way around. The human animal is, inevitably, flawed – and there is always the temptation to make just one short call, check that one detail, complete that half-finished text or glance at that incoming message. A quick look, a few more words, just this once – who could it hurt? The answer is not only ourselves, but many others as well. ~ Black Press

B.C. V IEWS

The NDP’s soul search going nowhere VICTORIA – B.C. NDP president Moe Sihota says an external review of the party’s performance in the May election will “look very much at the DNA of the NDP.” Early signs are not encouraging. Start with the five-member panel announced to conduct the review. The required “labour” representation is in the person of Cindy Oliver, president of the union representing college and university instructors, and Andy Ross, ex-president of COPE 378, which represents BC Hydro employees among others. Another appointee is NDP MP Jinny Sims, a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. If the party wants to further solidify its image as a lobby group for pension-subsidized government unions, it’s off to a great start. The terms of reference defy parody. In addition to unions, the

panel required “more than one woman.” A sub-committee may be struck, if it has representation from “youth, women, labour, visible minority, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisesexual, transgendered, questioning).” I presume the party’s lengthy anti-harassment policy will be read Tom FLETCHER out to begin all meetings. Once they finally get down to business, the list of election campaign details they must examine is long. In addition to that, they must review “stakeholder relations including community leaders, business, social movement, ethnic communities, environmental movement, affiliated unions and the labour movement.”

One of the excuses offered by leader Adrian Dix for the party’s defeat was the loss of 40,000 jobs in the B.C. forest industry. The suggestion is that those people left for Alberta, and if they were still here, they would have voted NDP. That presumed solidarity has never existed in the private sector, and in fact the highest-paid union workers have good reason to vote for lower taxes. To confirm B.C. and Canada’s “progressive” tax system, all they have to do is look at their pay stubs. The mandate for this review mentions not one actual public policy issue. Here’s one the committee might kick around. Having lost the 2009 election campaigning against the carbon tax, the NDP is now calling for it to be increased and extended to greenhouse gases produced by industrial process emissions.

A simple example is a cement kiln, which burns fuel to reach the temperature at which the components are partially burned and cement is produced. Cement manufacturers pay carbon tax on the fuel, whether it’s natural gas or shredded tires, but not on the process. B.C. cement makers are already pleading for relief, because the fuel-intensive process puts them at a price disadvantage with U.S. and Chinese producers. Further unilateral tax action by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the government to order BC Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C.

Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their ill-fated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver. Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. It will be flat out to get that done, and the company president can’t yet say if it has the capacity and skilled labour to bid on BC Ferries ships too. Seaspan has to operate in the real world of limited resources. So does the NDP, but it’s not clear if they can find a way out of their thicket of special interests and stale economic notions.

FHA calls for milk donations When breast-feeding fails, the next best option for most babies is pasteurized donor milk. Fraser Health is working to make this option a reality for as many babies in the region as possible. To this end, the Chilliwack Health Unit has had a Milk Depot for over a decade and has sent over 9000 ounces of donated breast milk to the only Milk Bank in this province at BC Women’s Hospital. This city’s Milk Depot collects and stores screened milk that women from communities, like Chilliwack, donate. The milk is then sent to BC Women’s for pasteurization and further screening; Chilliwack General Hospital has dispensed about 330 ounces of pasteurized donor milk as an alternative to

artificial infant formula since the Dispensary opened in 2011. This is wonderful news, but we know that we can do more. Informal milk sharing is taking place in many communities, including Chilliwack. Mothers are seeking different solutions to meet the needs of their infants and young children. I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to the women of Chilliwack to consider donating the special gift of breast milk. For more information on donating, please call the Chilliwack Health Unit at 604-702-4900 or go to www. bcwomensmilkbank.ca/.

Crack down on noisy vehicles I compliment Dee Thompson for her letter to the editor in the Thursday, July 25, Chilliwack Progress. Â More citizens should speak out regarding unnecessary street noise levels. We live in Hampton

House Retirement Residence opposite the Chilliwack Hospital on Hodgins Avenue.  There are visible signs posted stating “Quiet Zone� and “Speed 30 km Zone�. This appears to be the signal to want-to-be car and motorcycle racers

to rev their motors and accelerate through this area. Yes, there are ambulance, fire and police sirens along Hodgins Avenue. I can accept these worthy noises. The unwanted noises from street racing through

this area is unlawful and unacceptable. More policing in this area is needed and I have a question for City Council. If the City of Vancouver has a noise by-law, why not the City of Chilliwack? Marvia Hickli

Horse show another great success Thank you, Chilliwack. This past weekend, the Pacific Association of the Andalusian & Lusitano Horse hosted its 10th Anniversary Fiesta of the Royal Horse at Chilliwack Heritage Park. The Fiesta is the Grand Finale for the Canadian National Andalusian Show held July 26-28. For the past 10 years, PAALH

has been holding this event at Heritage Park and the community has consistently surpassed our expectations with their support; from local business and media sponsors to the general public who come to see these wonderful horses perform – you have all helped make this special event a success! There are far too many people

to thank here so we’ll be highlighting many of our supporters on our facebook page over the next few weeks (facebook.com/pacificandalusian) On behalf of PAALH, Thank you Chilliwack! Crystal Hemsworth

Bicycles must follow rules of the road Re: Share the road with cyclists (Progress, July 30). I looked up the address you wrote for ICBC on bicycles. I could not get a 2004 notice from ICBC. What I did get was a May 26 2011 notice written by

Adam Grossman. This is obviously an up dated version from the one you read. Nowhere in this notice does it say that you can take up a whole lane and ride side by side with another biker. The actual wording is Cyclists

should ride on the right side of the road and in single file. Cyclist need to ensure they follow the rules of the road. Just like any other vehicle, you need to obey stop signs and other traffic control

devices and enforcement. Finally and if I’m not mistaken, the motor vehicles act governs bicycles. I would suggest that you contact your local RCMP office.

In a recent article, “Milk sharing helps babies grow strong� (July 23, 2013), a very important message was shared with mothers in Chilliwack: breast-feeding your baby gives them an important head-start in life and mothers will always look for creative solutions to complicated challenges. Sharing breast milk is not new, yet today this practice raises eyebrows. Most women want to breastfeed, but are sometimes limited in their ability to do so for a variety of reasons, like illness or simply not producing enough milk for their baby. Couple this with lack of support, and they are unable to meet their breast-feeding goals. There is a solution, however.

Scream and yell and making sure the cougar knows you’re not prey but something different,” he advised. “Pick up a stick and hit it in the face. Preferably the nose and not the body. And if you get knocked over stay on your butt and use your feet to kick it. Ninety-nine per cent of the time you’ll be OK.” When found, the cougar will be put down.

“Everyone says it looks like a healthy small-sized cougar, and it’s probably far more interested in dogs than humans,” Jacobi said. “It’s probably immature, and still trying to find its own territory. It’s in the cougar equivalent of teenage years and it’s not quite sure what the right thing to do is.” Cougar houndsmen were working the hill Wednesday afternoon, using bloodhounds to pick up the cat’s scent.

Don Quiring: Keeping the faith Don Quiring is an inspiration. Although this shy, quiet and humble man has been sick most of his life, his hope, peace and utter resilience is something to behold. God has always been the one thing that Don has counted on and he feels blessed to be comforted by a passage in the bible that has helped him when all hope seems to have vanished. “We are afflicted in every way but not crushed, perplexed but not despairing, persecuted but not forsaken and struck down but not destroyed,” he recited, calmly. Don was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a disease where excess mucus clogs the lungs but it wasn’t diagnosed until he was around three. “Most kids survived until they reached kindergarten but fortunately, I’m still here,” he smiled gently. As a youngster, Don recalls being sick most of the time. “I always seemed to have strep throat and stomach aches but fortunately I never had pneumonia, until I was in university, at least.” Don, his twin brother, his two older sisters and his parents lived in Burnaby and behind the family home; there was the bush, a place where children were able to play, explore and learn in an enchanted environment. “We played there all of the time. We were always damming up the creek and then letting it go, as well as playing all kinds

of sports like baseball, football and soccer,” he said. As he got older, Don and his friends would often cycle to Stanley Park to head to the beach. By the time that he hit middle school, Don took up track and cross country and then in high school, he started playing tennis and badminton. “Sports certainly helped out with my CF in that they helped me clear my airways,” he said. Ana The Quiring MACEDO family was very devout and growing up, Don was heavily involved in the Mennonite Brethren Church’s youth activities. After graduating from Burnaby Central High School, Don went off to Columbia Bible College for a couple of years. “After Bible College, I took on a summer job as a counsellor at Camp Stillwood.” Since he was a youngster, Don had always enjoyed insects so it was quite fitting when he decided to head off to UBC to study biology. “I really wasn’t sure at first what I wanted to do but then during the last couple of years, I concentrated on entomology. He received his masters and became an entomology technician while his twin brother became an entomologist.

Don landed a job with the Greenhouse Growers Co-op at the time that he was writing his thesis. “I was studying western flower thrips, a serious pest of greenhouse floriculture,” he said. After his contract with the Greenhouse Growers was over, he was awarded another research contract. This time, it was with the Saanich Research Station and for the next two years he tested new bacteria meant to control the whitefly, a common greenhouse pest. In 1981, he met the girl that he would eventually marry. “She was from Quebec and was doing her undergrad degree and was working in the lab at Laval University where my brother was doing his PhD. She was coming out west to learn to speak English and my brother suggested that I show her around. The first thing that we did was hike Elk Mountain and it just poured,” he laughed. Four years later, the couple married and they had one daughter. By 1987, the research station in Saanich was set to close and Don would be out of a job. “David Gillespie, who was a scientist there, got a job at the Agassiz Research Station and I was able to make the move as well,” he said. Twenty-four years after they had met, his wife passed away from ovarian cancer and this Continued: ANA/ p22

Hibiscus are generally the last flowering shrub to show leaves in spring but they more than make up for it by being the last hurrah in the fall garden. Hibiscus can be somewhat difficult to get established. They need full sun or just a touch of shade and a little tender loving care to get going and to perform their best. Hibiscus grow just fine in a wide variety of well drained soils, but they need plenty of organic matter to hold

Move over Hawaii, we’ve got our own beautiful hibiscus to light up our summer gardens. Perhaps one of the most under-used summer flowering shrub is the hardy Hibiscus syriacus althaea or Rose of Sharon. It has been cultivated in England since the 16th century, but it is only over the past few years that, because of today’s many new varieties, it has become a more mainstream plant.

moisture. They wilt easily in hot weather and need a deep watering during periods of long drought. Don’t move them around the garden as they are not happy being transplanted. It’s also a good idea to mulch their roots over the first couple of winters to protect them from deep frost. Hibiscus are medium to large sized plants, usually sold in bush form, but they can also be purchased or trained into a handsome tree form. Growing to about 3.5 meters (12 feet), they can easily be pruned in late winter to conform their size to your garden needs. There are three flower forms: large singles, semi-double and smaller doubles. My favourite is ‘Red Heart’, a large white single with a red eye that really shows up in the garden. ‘Diana’ is a huge pure white triploid that remains open at night. ‘Woodbridge’ is a single magenta rose with a red eye. ‘Bluebird’ and ‘Marina’ are improved forms of a single blue with a red eye. In the double forms, ‘Ardens’ is a purple and ‘Collie Mullens’ is a magenta rose with a crimson eye. The newest series from Spring Meadows Nursery in Michigan is the Chiffon Series featuring beautiful large, full semi-doubles. The blue, lavender, white and pink ‘Chiffons’ are quite spectacular. Some very innovative growers are planting two colours together in one container, providing a beautiful two tone effect for a novel addition to any garden. They are just blooming now in most nurseries, and it’s a great time to see all the varieties to make a choice for your garden. Planted now, they will light up your summer garden for years to come.

Chilliwack’s own These Kids Wear Crowns take the stage at Heritage Park on Friday, Aug. 9 at 9:30 p.m at the Chilliwack Fair.

TKWC ready to rock the Chilliwack Fair Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Alex Johnson, lead singer of These Kids Wear Crowns, says he’s been “sprawled out like a cat” to deal with the heat in Chilliwack. TKWC fans may have even spotted Alex and the boys chillaxing at some popular spots around town this summer. “One of our favourite places in Chilliwack is Major Leagues 2,” Johnson tells The Progress. “We like to hang out there, play a little volleyball right outside. Or we’ll get together and go for a bike ride by the Vedder River.” But it’s been a little too quiet in the dog days of summer. “Not doing too much,” Johnson says. “It’s been a little frustrating.

We want to get out and play.” Last year they toured a total of about 200 days. This year, it’s been a lot less, maybe 20 days playing and on the road. “Now after being home for a year, and only travelling a week or two, I’m more humbled by being at home and waiting to go on tour,” he says. The band members have been writing like mad for a new album set to drop sometime next year. But unlike the first album, they’ve been jet-setting across the continent to work on tunes they’ve been co-writing, paired with songwriters based in Toronto and L.A. for the new album under the Universal label, which purchased their old label, EMI Canada. Now they’re with Universal Canada.

That has meant some big changes for TKWC, but the band was happy that some key members of the team from EMI survived the transition. “So we’ve just been writing, writing, writing for the new album, with a bunch of people who write for a living.” They’ve got about 20 songs almost completed to demo readiness, and another 30 on the way. “Working with a team, from the label and management, you’ve got to trust that they know what they’re doing,” he says. The energetic band first exploded onto the scene on the MuchMusic reality show DisBand in 2009 and were signed to Capitol/EMI. The band’s debut single and music video, Break It Up debuted at No. 60 on the Canadian Hot 100.

In Fall 2010, they headed back into the studio to record, Jumpstart, released on March 1, 2011. One of the singles was a cover of the Whitney Houston song I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” featuring Mexican actress and singer, Eiza González. They’ve toured with bands like Hedley, Faber Drive and Good Charlotte. So what’s next? “We’re finishing up the album this month.” One of the B side songs is about Chilliwack. “It’s about growing up in a small town, and how things change over the years.” The singer says he hates to use the word “mature” to describe the new album, but it slips out. “Let’s say there are elements that

“This is the 100-yard diet, because they (the cattle) are the right there,” said Holly. “People really like the ethically raised thing, so they can come and see how we raise them.” The family has happily participated in the Slow Food tour for four years. “It brings the Vancouver foodie crowd out to Chilliwack and shows them that we’re a destination,” said Holly, who also sits on the Chilliwack tourism board. The day before on July 27, Agassiz’s own Slow Food tour, which has run for two years longer than Chilliwack’s, welcomed between 800 and 900 cyclists. The upcoming eight annual Greendale Country Sampler will see many of the same businesses as the Chilliwack Slow Food Cycle Tour open its doors on Aug. 24.

Insights into helping local kids

The Chilliwack Child and Youth Committee’s (CYC) Consultation on Chilliwack’s Children brings together human service providers, including teachers, counsellors, child care workers, clergy, agency managers, youth and parents. It is a process that attempts to balance a number of needs: 1) community building through awareness and networking; 2) continuing education; 3) inspiration for human service (yes, even those who are the most hopeful about humanity can sometimes benefit from a little inspiration); 4) and broader community consultation and participation on CYC goals and objectives. By most accounts, the recently held 20th Consultation was a huge success with more than 160 people

attending, including 20 youth. The day featured two very thought provoking presentations and participation in a simulation exercise. At its conclusion, everyone enjoyed a massive cake celebrating the 20 th anniversary of this event. Former members from 20 Rob years ago attended and were feted LEES – people like Mel Folkman, Edna Warick, Bruce McNeil and Alice Stein.   The guest speakers were former Lt. Governor Steven Point, who talked about making change

wherever we are, and Keli Anderson, President of a national organization for parents of kids with mental health problems. Keli opened the day telling about her own journey to get help for her son. When her son was first diagnosed with mental illness she felt professionals inferred she or her husband had done something wrong, and she often felt excluded from decisions about her son’s care. Her theme was “nothing about us, without us.� The service pathways exercise provided grist for considerable thought about how services can be improved in Chilliwack.

was a very difficult time for both Don and his daughter. “The worst grief that anyone can experience is their own and this was certainly one of the low points in my life.� Then, about four years after his wife’s death, Don was diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia, a disease that causes involuntary contraction of the neck muscles and causes abnormal movements. This results in considerable pain and discomfort. The onset of the Dystonia, coupled with the fact that his Cystic Fibrosis was getting worse, forced him to step down from a career that he thoroughly enjoyed. Although for some reason Don is still able to ride his bike, the Dystonia is debilitating and makes watching television, reading a book, being around large crowds or listening to someone speak for long periods, literally impossible. “I’m on a waiting list for deep brain stimulation surgery that may alleviate my symptoms but who knows if I will qualify,� he mentioned. Despite his many challenges, Don admits that has never felt sorry for himself. “I have learned to live with what I have and I can find people that are a lot worse off than I am. Regardless of what I go through, I still feel blessed and I know that God is on my side. The members of the Broadway Mennonite Church have become my family. They are my best friends,� he smiled.

Volunteers needed for Fox Run The people who look for the possibilities in an impossible task often make the difference, and Terry Fox was one of those people. It was Terry’s determination towards his ultimate goal – to outrun cancer – that exemplifies the importance of leading by example. Terry ran 5,373 kilometers in 143 days with the goal of seeking a cure for those affected by cancer and giving those around him something to hold onto – hope. This year marks the 33rd annual Terry Fox Run and volunteers are needed to help organize and execute the Run in the Chilliwack community. By becoming a Run volunteer, you become an integral

Volunteers are needed to join the organizing committee and also for various Run day duties for this meaningful cause, as the Run is fast approaching and is taking place on Sept. 15. “We have a great committee here in Chilliwack and it is a great opportunity for someone looking to make a difference in their community with a very worthy cause,” says Margaret Kostrzewa, Chilliwack Run Organizer.

the doctor at the walkin clinic then the doctor would send them to a drug and alcohol counsellor. To find suitable housing they’d have to go to an agency, where they were then asked to get a form from the internet, which meant they had to go to the library. Around the hall the groups wandered, experiencing some of the frustration and fatigue often experienced by actual clients seeking help. When participants were asked to comment on what they learned from the exercise, two main themes emerged. First, most people thought there needed to be a streamlined way for clients to seek help in navigating an unfamiliar system. Suggestions were for more peer navigators and embracing the philosophy that “every door is the right door.” It was felt that the more service organizations work together, the more likely they

are to guide whoever approaches them to the most appropriate services – the right door. The second major theme was that many of those who played the role of client felt judged. In a society where we are meant to be self sufficient, this is an all-too-common feeling. To address this, participants recommended more “human” human services that are specifically intended to reduce the stigma we feel when seeking help for a problem.           Both of these key recommendations are now on the agenda of the CYC and plans will soon be underway to address them.  Events like this consultation remind us all: it takes a community to raise a child.   Dr. Robert Lees, is the Community Psychologist for the Ministry for Children and Family Development in Chilliwack.

Huskers tackle Broncos in home opener Trouble T bl shot h talk lk The key to any trouble shot is to fully commit to the swing, and finish it well, writes Jennifer Greggain Reflecting on last weekend’s season opening loss in Kelowna, Valley Huskers head coach Tyson St. James hopes the beginning is more indicative than the end. The beginning was beautiful. Through one quarter, his Husker upstarts led the perennial BCFC powerhouse Okanagan Sun 7-0. They rattled off a 19 play drive that included four third-down conversions. Outstanding. But the rest was pure ugly, with Chilliwack getting outscored 65-3. “I think the first quarter kind of emulated what we expect from our team, and the rest of the game goes back in history,” St. James said. “When I say that, I think that our team can do what we did in the first quarter on a regular basis. But when silly mistakes happen, they revert back to old habits.” Old habits got the Huskers one win combined over the last

three seasons, and St. James has zero interest in going down that road again. “We have to avoid the old culture, and right now we can go one way or the other,” he said, as his team prepares to host Kamloops Saturday afternoon (1 p.m. at Townsend Park. “We’re going to fix those things, and if we can get them mentally sound, get them

to take a hit and not fold — it’s the hardest thing in sports, but that’s up to us coaches.” The Broncos were the one team the Huskers beat last year. Chilliwack topped them at home in the final game of 2012, and Kamloops returns much of their roster from last year. The Broncos took it on the chin in week one, losing 51-0 to the

defending Cullen Cup champion Langley Rams. “We line up quite competitively with them, but we have to eliminate dumb mistakes,” St. James noted. The Huskers will play their first few home games at Townsend Park, while Exhibition Stadium get its makeover. Saturday’s game will include a special

on-field tribute to former Husker Kyle ‘Sunshine’ Osterlund. DJ Rockadile is performing before the game and Evolution Dance Studio performs at half time. Everyone’s favourite apes, Bongo and Tongo, will be in the stands, leading the cheers for the home team. Get BCFC info online at bcjuniorfootball.ca

Blesch named MVP as Team BC takes gold Chilliwack’s Christel Blesch won gold last weekend, playing for Team BC at the midget female lacrosse nationals. The tournament was played in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Over 400 of the top female box lacrosse players showcased their skills July 23-28.

Blesch and company won all five of their games, starting with a 10-1 dismantling of Alberta. They did the same to the ILA (Iroqois Lacrosse Association), then pounded Nova Scotia 17-3. A 4-2 win over Ontario punched their ticket to the finals, where they beat

Ontario again, 7-2. Blesch collected eight goals and four assists overall. She was named the most valuable player in the championship game, scoring twice and adding an assist. Get more tourney info online at femalelaxnationals.ca

The first PGA tour event I ever attended as a spectator was the 1998 PGA Championship. I was expecting to see perfectly executed shots with w ith lots of fairways hit. I was surprised to learn that PGA players only hit an average of 61 per cent of fairways. However, what separates touring pros from amateurs is their ability to get out of trouble. Here are three versatility shots that every golfer needs to know. First, here is a useful shot if you find yourself behind some trees, and need to hit it low beneath some branches. Select a low-lofted iron, like a four or five iron. Set up with the ball position closer to your trail leg and ‘press’ your hands well in front of the club head. This set up de-lofts the club, making it easier to keep the ball low. Now, take a half swing ‘punch’ shot with very little wrist hinge. You should get a low trajectory golf shot that runs a long way. On the other hand, to hit a high shot over some trees, you will need to set up differently. Select a higher lofted club that has plenty of room to get over the tree. Then, set up by placing the ball closer to your lead leg in your stance. Tilt your shoulders so your trail shoulder is slightly lower than your lead shoulder. Make a full swing as normal, cleanly striking the bottom of the ball. The key is still striking the ball in a downward

angle, rather than ‘lifting’ the ball by swinging upward with your wrists. You should get a highlofted shot that lands softly on the green. Finally, let’s say you have hit your drive down the middle of the fairway, but find your ball in a divot. Some of you mayy have a few choice words to say about your luck. Don’t panic. This shot is much easier to hit than you think. To hit the ball cleanlyy out of a divot, you will need to hit down on the ball with a good finish position. To do this, set up with the ball slightlyy back from the middle of your stance, and shiftt your weight slightly to your lead leg. This will allow a steeper angle off approach to the ball, and thus make it easier to gett the ball up and onto the green. In the end, you can never hit any shot in golff tentatively. So the keyy to any ‘trouble’ shot is to fully commit to the swing, and finish it well. Avoid the tendency to ‘steer’ the ball, and you’ll find it much easier to successfully execute difficult shots. Greggain played pro-fessionally for 10 years, including two on the LPGA. She was named d the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Low Teaching Pro of the Year, and is the lead instruc-tor of the Sardis Golff Academy.

The Family Affair Racing Team (FART) is presenting its fourth annual Formula Vee Invitational Race Aug. 3-4 at Mission Raceway Park. These open-wheel race cars sport 1,200cc Volkswagen Beetle engine. Drivers from as far away as Oregon and California come to compete in this eagerly anticipated event. Former SCCA Formula Vee champion Dennis Andrade from Brush Prairie, WA, has won this race the last two years. Multi-Formula Vee Champion, Burnaby’s 80-yearold Al Ores, will be competing for top spots, giving his son-inlaw, Scott Arthur of Mission, a run for his money. Arthur is also a two-time Formula Vee champion. Also vying for top spots is Pam Williams, a Formula Libra champion, and her mother, Gayle Baird, also of Ladner. FART was started in 2009 by the Arthurs and Williams’. This is an arrive-and-drive program for racers who don’t want the upkeep of a race car, or who just want to try an open-wheel car. The team is working with Covenant House, an organization which provides shelter, food, guidance and support for street youth to get them off the streets.

Chilliwack hosts mini road-racing nationals The first of three Pacific Coast Mini RoadRacing Club national races takes place this weekend at the Greg Moore Raceway in Chilliwack. Riders from all over Western Canada will be tearing up the track, trying to knock off an 11-year-old kid. Chilliwack’s Jake Hayes is in the field, entering the competition as the regional points leader.

The pint-sized racer dominated his last round of racing, finishing first in three of four events at a PMRRC regional event at the GMR. Racing against adults, he won handily in Spec Supersport, Spec Over/ Under 21 and Formula Thunder. His third place finish was in Motard, an expert class race featuring some of the best bikes and racers in

Canada. After a crash in qualifying, he started at the back of the grid, working his way through the field to earn podium placing. “The club didn’t want Jake to race this class out of concern for his safety,” said his dad, Norm Hayes.. “Well, he proved that not only can he race in this class, he can stand on the box.” This weekend’s racing takes place Saturday and Sunday. Practice

and qualifying runs are on day one with racing on day two. The event is free to spectators. Jake heads to Quesnel the following weekend (Aug. 9-11) for another two days of national racing. “We haven’t raced Quesnel, but we know it has a few long straightaways,” Norm said. “With the way Jake rides he should do very well up there as well.”

Trivia Talk Canada’s smallest province was known as “Isle de Saint Jean” to the French, and then St John’s Island from 1759 to 1798, when its present name - Prince Edward Island (for the Duke of Kent then in command of troops in Halifax) - was chosen to reduce the confusion among various places called St John’s and Saint John.

B.C. Named British Columbia dates from 1858 when Queen Victoria selected it over New Caledonia. The Columbia River had been named in 1792 by the American explorer Robert Gray for his ship. The word “British” was added to distinguish the province from the South American country, Colombia.
