Fancy Feet a survivor’s tale Heidi Cave pens book about devastating crash Monique TAMMINGA Black Press

There’s a story behind every smile...

Patient Testimonial

Prior to being a patient with Dr’s Surdhar and Lui, I’d have described myself as an “apprehensive” patient. The one that wishes the upcoming circled date on the calendar was past. After a few procedures with the dentists at Bridgeview Dental I can happily say that I no longer dread the upcoming appointments and look forward to seeing the friendly dental team and having my dental work done. Even a recent extraction and implant that followed was without discomfort. I feel confident in the treatment they provide me knowing they keep up with what’s new in the dental field with their continuing education and study club participation. Heather

Fifteen years ago, Heidi Cave survived a devastating, fiery crash in Abbotsford that took the life of her best friend and left her with burns to half her body and both feet amputated. The damage done from the crash – caused by a speeding driver – left Cave, who was 23 at the time, in a coma for two weeks, followed by seven months in the burn unit and then GF Strong rehabilitation centre. In between, she endured multiple surgeries.  Just hearing what Cave – now living in Langley – had to endure in the prime of her young life would make anyone wonder how she carried on. de It turns out she did, with MORINEE gusto, and now the 38-yearONLws.com old married mother of two abbyne has written a book about h her extraordinary story of trihe umph over tragedy in hopes it can move others to find strength in their own hardships. The book, published in partnership with Raincoast Publishing, was released July 30 and is available at local bookstores. Cave will be doing a book signing at the Coscto location in Abbotsford on Saturday, Aug. 24 from noon to 2 p.m. The book is called Fancy Feet: Turning Tragedy Into Hope. For Cave, the key message is choosing to be a survivor not a victim. It would have been easier to be a victim; maybe not happier, but easier, she explains. “I emerged from a two-week coma

also amputated and the reckless driver responsible for my situation lied to the police. While so much was beyond my control I was confronted with this question: Will I be a victim or a survivor?” Cave has shared her story with audiences across Canada, including the B.C. legislature, and to more than 3,000 firefighters from every state and province in North America at the International Association of Firefighters’ Biennial Convention, where she shared the stage with Hillary Clinton. At times, after she has spoken, people will come up to her and share their own tragedies and hardships, and ask the question, “When did it get better for you?” “I couldn’t give them a definite answer. There wasn’t a timeline. I just knew that one day I began to feel better, lighter. Sorrow didn’t disappear, but joy found me. I could laugh, a body-shaking laugh, and I felt that joy and sorrow could exist together, side by side,” she wrote in her blog. She named the book and her blog Fancy Feet both for her love of cute shoes and because it “was a quirky, fun take on making peace with my prosthetic legs,” she said. Even with all her public-speaking experience, she finds reading from her book very unnerving. She’s hoping it will get easier.  The book is gaining traction and interest from media everywhere. She recently wrote a poignant column in The Province about safe driving for the long weekend – one of B.C.’s deadly times on the road.

Reba McEntire is returning to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports centre. The country superstar will perform on Oct. 10.

One of the most successful female recording artists in history, Reba McEntire, is returning to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) on Thursday, Oct. 10. McEntire, who has sold more than 56 million albums worldwide and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, will be joined by Canadian country music singer Gord Bamford. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Aug. 23, starting at 10 a.m. McEntire last played the AESC to a sold-out show in March 2010. “Reba McEntire will be a fantastic show to help kick off our fall entertainment lineup,” said Jason Blumenfeld, AESC general manager. “Abbotsford packed the arena the last

time she was here and I am excited to see the energy in the building.” McEntire has won 15 American Music Awards, 13 ACM Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards, seven CMA Awards, two Grammy Awards, an ACM Career Achievement Honour, and is one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress. Her reign of number 1 hits spans four decades, and Billboard, Country Aircheck and Mediabase recognized her as the biggest female hitmaker in country music history. McEntire earned her 64th top 10 hit and her 35th number 1 with Turn On The Radio, from her most recent Continued on A6

Two sentenced in doda case Arrested in undercover operation in 2011

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Two Abbotsford men have been sentenced for trafficking the opiate doda in July 2011. Ekbal Swaich, 53, and Raj Gandhi, 50, pleaded guilty in Abbotsford provincial court on Aug. 8. Gandhi received a sixmonth conditional sentence (house arrest), while Swaich was handed a $1,000 fine. Both men were also banned from owning weapons for 10 years. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the case is among the first doda convictions in Canada. Swaich and Gandhi were arrested in September 2011 after a two-month investigation by the Abbotsford Police Department. Concerns had been expressed by members of the

This container of doda powder was seized by Surrey RCMP during a bust in 2009. South Asian community that doda was being sold in the city. Doda, an opiate in the form of a fine powder, is derived from the same poppy plant that produces heroin and opium. It is most commonly consumed in tea or hot water.

Undercover officers with the bike squad arranged three separate meetings to purchase doda, and the last one resulted in the arrests of the two men in the vicinity of Cedar Park Place – where one of them was operating a business – at South Fraser Way

and Clearbrook Road. Both were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance. Meanwhile, another case involving poppyrelated drug charges is nearing its conclusion. Tehal Singh Bath, 34, of Abbotsford and Mandeep Singh Dhaliwal, 32, of Mission pleaded guilty in June 2012 to production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking in connection to a seven-acre poppy field in Chilliwack. The field contained almost 60,000 plants, and Crown and police believe the crop was being grown to produce doda. Bath and Dhaliwal were arrested in August 2010 while tending plants in the field. Their sentencing hearing was held in June, and the judge was slated to give the ruling yesterday (Wednesday) in Chilliwack provincial court, after press deadline.

Atheists lend a helping hand Discussion group branches out into community Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

The conversation at an FVASH meeting flows easily from space exploration to environmental conservation to the Baha’i faith. It’s an eclectic mix – but that’s to be expected at a meeting of the Fraser Valley Atheists Skeptics and Humanists. Jonathan, who asked that his last name not be used, has been with the group for three years, said it is “primarily a social group,” where the topic most often drifts away from religion and into current events, science, morality and philosophy. “We try not to schedule any topic on purpose,” said Jonathan. “We don’t want anyone to feel pressured to come and talk about a certain thing.” The group is an affiliate of the B.C. Humanists, but the composition is organic, with no fixed mandate – just a goal to provide a forum for atheists, skeptics and humanists to meet. Religion is most commonly discussed when new members show up and share their story of how they ended up attending an atheists’ group. “A lot of people come from a religious background … and they happen to not be, so they want a place to come and talk to like-minded people.” The group meets at Legal Grounds Coffeehouse on Essendene Avenue every Sunday at noon, drawing attendance of about 15 to 25 members, ranging in age from late teens to nearly 90. Attendees do

tress with 11 movie credits to her name, including Tremors, North, and The Little Rascals. In 2001, she made her Broadway debut in Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun which the New York Times said was “without qualification the best performance by an actress in a musical comedy this season.�

That same year, she also starred in the sitcom Reba, which ran for six seasons on the WB Television Network. In fall 2012, she returned to television with the new sitcom Malibu Country. The Australian-born and Albertaraised Gord Bamford – signed by Sony Music Entertainment and Ole – has

Dealing with ‘negative’ views From A5

word atheist doesn’t mean much to the group as it’s the absence of theism. Mark said that people often question where atheists find their morality, which the group agrees is an innate part of humanity. They hope to become more involved in the community to help others and change what people think about atheists. FVASH cleans a local park monthly and has assisted the 5 and 2 Ministries with providing meals to homeless residents in Jubilee Park. Nancy Gallagher, a member of the group, said it is very natural to work with a religious agency like 5 and 2, as the two groups “have more compatible goals than not.” She added that despite some

people’s negative perception of atheists, many community members have been very accepting of FVASH. Members are involved with Bridges of Faith, an Abbotsford Community Services’ event where they meet with members from different religions in order to build a more understanding community. Though representatives from FVASH may not have a religion, Nancy said Bridges of Faith fought for them to be there and represented among Abbotsford’s diverse religious community. Mark added the meetings are a positive place that people can go to if they have left a church or religion and are looking for a new community in which to become involved. “If anyone has left the church, it

would be nice for them to have a place to come to – a support group.” Nancy said they want to be seen as valuable members of the community, “and not people who are scary,” adding that as humanists, they strive to assist their fellow man. “We don’t need divine intervention; we just need intelligent, compassionate people to get together and do what’s best.” The group said they have no intention to change anyone’s faith, just offer a place where people can come to speak honestly about what they believe in and how they feel. Anyone interested in FVASH can attend their meetings at Legal Grounds Coffeehouse on Essendene Avenue, Sundays at noon, or visit FVASH.com.

Health experts to answer questions

Alex BUTLER

Abbotsford News

A public presentation will bring two of the world’s top physical activity experts to answer the public’s questions about the connection between physical activity and health. The Abbotsford Division of Family Practice along with Healthy Abbotsford will host Dr. Steven Blair and Dr. Karim Khan on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Brenda Adams, community co-ordinator for Healthy Abbotsford, said the presentation is part of a larger initiative in Abbotsford called Exercise

is Medicine that aims to make physical activity a priority in primary care settings. The goal is to get physicians to talk to their patients about physical activity and “actually prescribe it as a treatment.” Adams said that Blair is a leading expert in the role of exercise in health. He will be speaking to the medical community in the morning and in the evening will give a presentation and answer questions based on the most current healthrelated research. “There’s a lot of confusion out there around physical activity and health… so it will be an opportunity for the public to get some answers.”

OF THE WEEK Should authorities have the right to euthanize healthy, but illegally kept, animals?

Pythons euthanized Unless they were dying or something it’s not “euthanasia,” they just straight up killed the poor lil dudes. Simon Thompson

Pressure is on for skills training Tom

B.C. Views Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk has offered some advice for students heading for post-secondary education this fall. In a commentary sent to B.C. newspapers, Virk reminded students that his task “is to ensure post-secondary students obtain the experience and qualifications needed to put a paycheque in their back pocket.” B.C. is forecast to have one million jobs to fill by 2020, through a combination of retirements and economic growth. More than 40 per cent of them will require trades and technical training, and for students, likely a move north. “My advice to students is to look at where the jobs are based and tailor their education and training to match,” Virk wrote. “Our population is concentrated in the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island, but as a resource-based economy,

many directly and indirectly related jobs are located elsewhere.” That’s not the only blunt message for students deciding on a career. While defending his ministry’s spending plans in the recent legislature session, Virk described some of the problems that are entrenched. Parents, particularly in immigrant communities, push their children towards medicine, law, dentistry or engineering, he noted. Students themselves gravitate toward areas that are familiar to them, such as teaching. B.C. universities graduated 2,000 new teachers last year. Another 850 arrived from out of province and were licensed to teach in B.C. During the same year, the B.C. school system hired 800 teachers. And many of those jobs were outside metropolitan areas. It’s been hammered into us by the B.C. government’s endless “jobs plan” advertis-

ing, and a similar campaign by Ottawa, that more students need to focus on trades and resource industries. Virk acknowledges that his budget contains another $1 million for advertising, the same as last year, much of it to reinforce the need to fill skilled jobs. But he danced around the question of whether there will be spaces in technical programs. NDP critics say the waiting list for these kinds of programs at Kwantlen University and B.C. Institute of Technology are running between a year and three years. And they have frequently noted that advanced education spending is budgeted to decline by $42 million over the next three years. Virk said post-secondary institutions working with industry have produced 456 additional seats in high-demand programs for this year. It’s a start. In July, Premier Christy Clark joined the chorus of premiers protesting Ottawa’s plan to claw back $300 million in federal

B.C. is forecast to have one million jobs to fill by 2020, through a combination of retirements and economic growth.

training money to provinces, for its new employer-driven Canada Jobs Grant. Clark and New Brunswick Premier David Alward were assigned to find an alternative to this drastic shift and report back in the fall. As usual, the NDP spent lots of time grilling Virk about student debt and the alleged need to reduce it. Ministry statistics show that about 30 per cent of students take out loans from the federal-provincial program, and the average is $20,000. One of the latest changes is a program of grants that go toward student debt as a reward for those who complete their chosen program. With 23,000 students collecting $41 million in grants, it might be working. For all the fuss about student debt, students pay only about a third of costs. The rest is on taxpayers, whether it produces any useful education or not. Virk is under instructions to review the student loan program “to find further improvements to meet students’ needs.” Given the magnitude of the gap between what skills our education system produces and what the economy needs, a larger shift in priorities is needed.

Don’t ‘avoid’ those in need What, as a society, are we all doing about it? What do those God-fearing people out there think about them? Do they dream? If yes, what would their dreams be? Perhaps food, perhaps they remember those loved ones who were once part of their lives and they were part of theirs. Do they dream about their homes and where they lived? Is money the only criteria of the modern world? Maybe, but what as human beings are we passing on to our next generations? Hatred and avoiding poor is not what we were told.

compassion and helping people in distress because she used to say, “Good and bad times come on everyone,; all are Children of God.” This is strange, how easily we let them slip into darkness, into a void and turn our backs. It’s strange that we label all of them bad people, junkies and keep ourselves away from them. I am of the view that we should do something to help them. Let’s not leave humanity outside our homes. Let’s not leave humanity in parks, hungry, wet and cold, looking at the sky, hoping and dreaming about some miracle. Samuel Gill

Visiting a park, I saw a few people in rags. They were reduced to bones and I was told by a kid to “avoid them.” It was a nice warm summer sunny day. I made my distance and was watching these two.  They were old and in bad shape. I didn’t see any harm coming from them, although it is labelled that they are drug abusers and bad people and we should not interact with them. These people were young. They might have fallen in  love too, married, had kids and somehow life puts them in the wrong place. What is the real face of humanity?

Abbotsford residents are being asked to take part in an online survey that will be used to compile data on significant social and economic trends in the city. The survey will lead to the first Abbotsford Vital Signs Report, which is being produced this fall by the Abbotsford Community Foundation (ACF) in partnership with the Abbotsford News. The public can complete the survey from now until Sept. 3 at fluidsurveys.com/s/abbotsfordvitalsigns/ It asks residents to give a letter grade (A, B, C, etc.) in response to questions related to the issues in the report. Everyone who participates in the survey will be entered into a draw, taking place Sept. 17, for an iPad Mini. Abbotsford is among more than 20 community foundations across Canada that are producing Vital Signs reports, which will be released Oct. 1. ACF executive director Susan McAlevy said the report will promote awareness of community issues and be used by Abbotsford for social planning, by citizens and philanthropists to identify community needs and strengths, and by the ACF and other funders to inform its grant-making and leadership activities. McAlevy said the report will look at seven Vital Signs issue areas this year, and another six in 2014. This year’s issues will be revisited in 2015. This year’s issues are: the gap between the rich and the poor, housing, health, getting started (focusing on youth and those who are new to the community), belonging, learning, and food security. McAlevy said the next two years will establish some baselines to help ACF and other funders “in terms of measuring how our community’s efforts in addressing the gaps are doing.”

Oil refinery plan needs Canadian lenders

NEW meaning to the term...

‘Golden Oldie’

We buy old GOLD on the spot!

David Black says Chinese bank wants him to find 25 per cent at home

Jeff NAGEL

Black Press

B.C. businessman David Black has been forced to seek Canadian lenders to build his proposed oil refinery near Kitimat at the insistence of the Chinese bank that would act as the main financier. The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China declined to fully finance the $25-billion project, Black said, sending him to find a quarter of the required money within Canada. “It really came BLACK down to the fact that they wanted some skin in the game out of Canada and they would put 75 per cent of the money up for the refinery,” he said Monday. Black has billed the project, announced a year ago, as a way to create thousands of jobs in B.C. refining Alberta crude oil while ensuring diluted bitumen isn’t shipped in tankers, eliminating one of the biggest objections to construction of the proposed

Northern Gateway pipeline that could supply the crude. Black is advancing the project through his firm Kitimat Clean Ltd., but is also majority owner of the Black Press group of community newspapers in B.C., including this paper. He said he believes he has found lenders in Canada but gave no details, except to say he does not intend to take on equity investors. “It’s too early to say where or how, but I think it’s there,” he said. “Financially, it’s going to work out.” He aims to file a project description with the provincial government in September to initiate the environmental review process. None of the major North American oil companies have expressed any interest in financing or partnering on the refinery but Black said that’s no surprise. Oil extraction is traditionally more profitable than refining, he said, and the biggest energy firms may not want a new refinery competing against ones they already own. “I understand all that and decided early on I just had to find a Continued on A12

way around that and I think I’ve found it.” The $25-billion cost includes roughly $16 billion for the refinery – more than initially estimated due to a new refining process that promises to emit half as much greenhouse gas –  with the rest covering a natural gas pipeline, a fleet of

tankers and the cost of the oil pipeline, if necessary. Besides securing financing, Black said he must secure sites for the refinery and the marine terminal with the Kitselas and Haisla First Nations, determine if inland first nations along the proposed pipeline corridor can come on board and to button

down formal supply agreements with Canadian oil companies. He said an engineering firm from Calgary has endorsed the alternative refining process. Black reiterated his position that he could build the refinery even if the Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project is

rejected and instead bring oil via train, but he emphasized pipelines are safer. “I really hope it doesn’t come to that – I really hope we can do the pipeline.” A pipeline would bring money and benefits for First Nations and local communities that wouldn’t come with rail shipments, he added. Oil-on-rail shipments have been growing quickly as a way to get Alberta oil to market, but a pall was cast over the method last month when a runaway train carrying light crude oil exploded and destroyed the heart of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec. Black said it’s not clear to him whether there would be a risk of explosion with the rail shipment of diluted oil sands bitumen, but said he would welcome research to address that question. Sending the required oil by rail would add 12 trains per day on the CN Rail line across northern B.C. and Black said that would mean a significant increase in noise and traffic disruption in northern towns.

Three of the eight pit bulls that the SPCA seized from an Abbotsford home on Aug. 9 have since been euthanized. Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer for the BC SPCA, said the decision was made in consultation with veterinarians and an animal behaviour specialist. “(It was) very tough, but the reality was, due to the way these dogs were being kept/unsocialized, they were not able to be saved – although they were ultimately saved from a much more horrible existence,” she said. Five adult pit bulls and three puppies were seized from the home after they were found to be in need of immediate veterinary care. Moriarty said some of the animals were emaciated and were suffering from untreated lacerations, while the puppies were underweight and dehydrated. One of the adult dogs required emergency surgery to clean and close some large wounds. There were also concerns about the unsanitary conditions of the home and the mental health of the two owners. Moriarty said one of the puppies has since been adopted out, and the other two are up for adoption. Of the surviving two adult dogs, one is still recovering from surgery, and the owners are fighting to get back the other one. Once an animal is taken by the SPCA, the owners have 14 days to surrender it to the agency or to appeal the decision. The SPCA is continuing to investigate the case, and the owners could face criminal charges. The agency has not revealed the location of the home nor the names of the owners.

Girls organize event for charity ‘Bike marathon,’ bake sale and lemonade stand

Six girls who live on Pearl Avenue in Abbotsford held their third annual “bike marathon” on Wednesday (Aug. 14) to raise funds for local charity. The girls made Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center their focus this year and raised almost $250. The event included a bike marathon in which participants rode up and down the street – under parental supervision – doing as many laps as they could for 2.5 hours. The girls also sold cookies and cupcakes they had baked themselves and set up a lemonade stand and facepainting station. They promoted the event by posting handmade signs around the neighbourhood. “All us moms had to do was supervise, take them to the store for various supplies, say yes to the date and put it all on Facebook,” said Tanya Perk, mom of 10-year-old Hailey, one of the event’s organizers. The other organizers were Ella Duncan and Grace Thurmer – also age 10 – and they were assisted by Meagan Newberg, Ireland Forsberg and Ashley Hoffman. In the group’s first year of fundraising, they collected enough money to buy two hens and a rooster for a family in Africa. Last year, they raised funds for Cyrus Centre drop-in centre for at-risk youth.

Jam in Jubilee wraps up for another year

A19

Six-week music festival draws steady crowds downtown Alex Butler Abbotsford News

Jubilee in Jubilee wrapped up last Thursday, after providing six weeks of entertainment in Jubilee Park. The annual event brought together local musicians, artists and performers, as well as an average of 700 spectators each Thursday evening. Sophia Suderman, one of the event’s lead organizers, said this year’s festival was a success. “Things went really smoothly and we were really excited about the diversity in the lineup that we had.” The festival featured local acts such as the Immaculate Mules, Heatseeker, Old Mare and many more. Suderman said the acts were high quality, and many of them are local favourites. “The more local it is, the more excited people are to see their friends and family members there.” Suderman also said the event brought in a “good mix of people” and was well varied. She said the eclectic music each night drew people from a variety of interests. The final evening featured the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra and local bands Poor Richard’s Almanac and Oh No! Yoko, which Suderman said brought out a variety of fans for the evening. “For us, having the (Abbotsford) Youth Orchestra was big. That’s the biggest production we’ve ever done. It was really neat to co-ordinate that.” Suderman said they also received a good response to the short film festival, which was held on the fifth night of Jam in Jubilee and featured shorts by local filmmakers. Suderman said the

volunteer-run festival becomes better organized each year, but they were shorter on manpower than previous years and donations to the free festival were also down. In January, the executive will start meeting to plan next year’s festival. They will

continue to look for new committee members who are interested in helping, and Suderman said the organizers are “always open to people’s input and ideas.” Information about Jam in Jubilee can be found at www.jaminjubilee.com.

The Kennedys are a powerhouse duo with a musical bond that only identical twins can share.

The Honda

Vaudeville, part cabaret, part punk and part folk, featuring Tin Pan Alley ditties, Cuban shuffles, spirituals, roots, rockabilly and more. They call their music swing/folk/gypsy, and see themselves as wandering minstrels, entertainers hewn “from the old cloth.â€? These four young men (none of them named Maria) have the entertaining power of a traveling circus with the musical depth to back it up. The public is encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a range of live music at Fraser River Heritage Park, located at 7494 Mary St. in Mission. The Blackberry Kitchen and The Log Cabin CafĂŠ are open during both performances. Admission to the concerts is free, but donations to this communitybased series are appreciated.

I write about these bulbs almost every summer because they are so easy to grow and are so important for fall colour and because August is the only time of year to plant these giant crocus that bloom in September. Fall blooming colchicums go by the name of Autumn Crocus, although they are not really a crocus at all. In fact, they belong to the lily family and are native to the Mediterranean region. Colchicum bulbs become huge and can, over time, produce 19 to 25 flowers, one right after the other, until they all open in a profusion of colour. A lady, who used to grow thousands in her backyard in Vancouver, told me it takes about two years for a small bulb to grow into a huge specimen, at which point it splits into four smaller ones. Small bulbs will produce five to seven flowers; mid-sized bulbs will have about a dozen blooms. I have learned the hard way that these bulbs love a sunny, well-drained, yet moist location, with average soil. One year we planted them in several shady spots, only to have them gradually deteriorate to the point of no return. You can leave them in the ground to naturalize, if that is the effect you wish to have. A single corm of a large colchicum hybrid can easily multiply to cover nearly 900 square centimetres of garden. Just imagine what a few well-placed groupings throughout your garden can do. It is best to plant them about 10cm deep and about 15 to 20cm apart. They need some room, not only to multiply, but also for the huge foliage which will develop the following spring. These fascinating bulbs can actually bloom indoors simply by leaving them sitting on a windowsill. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to put them in a saucer on about two inches of gravel. The flowers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last quite as long, nor will they have the same intense colour, but they will bloom and can still be planted outside to

Colchicums should be planted in areas where they can be naturalized without interfering with other plants.

Colour makes them worth the effort

From A31

JD Miner A banjo, a fiddle and a doghouse

purple blooms of Waterlily are unusual and quite beautiful, but its heavy blossoms are often knocked down and spoiled by autumn rains. Colchicums should be planted in areas where they can be naturalized without interfering with other plants. Underplantings around flowering shrubs, like white altheas or P.G. hydrangeas, make a lovely contrast when the bulbs bloom each fall. Another wonderful combination is to plant them under pink snowberries (Symphoricarpos) for a great autumn display. Colchicums are only dormant in July and August, so you have to

be quick on the draw to get them planted immediately for any kind of showing this fall, but they are well worth the effort, believe me. The main bulb supplier for B.C. has just received their shipment for distribution to garden stores this week, so for this weekend and next week, colchicums should be widely available. I know there are many gardens out there that really need a lift in September, and these precious fall crocuses can add that little spark of colour. Think of them as fall messengers reminding us that in spring our gardens will be inundated with colour from their peers.

ment damp he played an aggressive, up-tempo style and displayed good grit and a high compete level," Flames GM Jay Feaster said of Jooris. "Our staff felt strongly that we should attempt to get him signed, and we are pleased to welcome him to the organization."

Heat schedule to feature frequent Comet sightings Canucks’ new farm team will visit Abbotsford seven times in 2013-14 Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The American Hockey League schedule doesn’t arrive until later this week, but the Abbotsford Heat released a few key details on Wednesday that bode well for the local franchise. The Utica Comets, the Vancouver Canucks’ new AHL affiliate, will visit the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) seven times in 2013-14 – once in a preseason game on Sept. 22, and six times during the regular season. That’s a significant increase –  the Heat hosted four regular season games against the previous incarnation of the Canucks’ farm team, the Chicago Wolves, each of the past two

seasons. Additionally, it represents a deviation from the standard AHL schedule format, wherein teams typically face divisional opponents most often, and then only eight times total for each team (four home games, four away). But Heat president Ryan Walter couldn’t be happier with the frequent Comets sightings on the schedule, and for good reason. The Canucks boast immense cachet in this market, and their farm team draws the biggest crowds at the AESC year in and year out. In 2012-13, for instance, the Heat drew an average crowd of 6,858 for their four home games vs. the Wolves, compared to 3,416 vs. other

Mulama gets the call from Whitecaps Watching his first professional soccer game on TV was a formative moment in Aaron Mulama’s life, and he can recall his response in vivid detail. “It was Manchester United and Chelsea, and it was a good game” he said. “When I saw those professional players playing, I said, ‘I’m going to be there one day.’” Mulama has carried that dream of playing pro soccer from his homeland of Kenya to Abbotsford, where he moved with his family at the age of eight.

Ben Gosson of the Whalers competes in boys 50m butterfly Saturday in Coquitlam.

“Grade A. Powerful and Enthralling.” Whalers fourth at B.C.’s (Highest Rating)

-Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Whalers turned in a terrific performance at the B.C. Summer Swimming Championships in Coquitlam last week, finishing fourth overall in the team standings. “Of course, as a coach, I’m thinking of what we could have done to get to third,” head coach Josh Sandberg said with a chuckle, after his team piled up 1,291 points at the provincial meet. “But I’m very happy with fourth in the province. We’ve been in the top five for the last six seasons now.” Leading the charge for the Whalers were Emily Aikema and Sarah Portas, both of whom climbed the provincial podium in all four of their individual events and tied for team-high honours by accruing 66 points apiece. Aikema, competing in the Div. 5 girls category, won gold in the 200-

metre individual medley and the 100 butterfly, and added bronze in the 50 fly and the 100 backstroke. Portas won gold in the Div. 1 girls 50 breaststroke, and silver in the 100 IM, 50 free and 100 free. Nadia Berard (Div. 7 girls) won a trio of medals – gold in the 100 free, silver in the 50 free and bronze in the 200 IM – while Emily De Jager’s gold medal in the Div. 1 girls 50 free warmed her coach’s heart. De Jager joined the club in May without any competitive experience, and to win a B.C. title is a “remarkable accomplishment,” Sandberg said. Brenden Saether (Div. 4 boys) fought through a shoulder injury to win bronze in the 50 free and 100 back, while Naomi Unger (Div. 1 girls, silver in 50 fly) and Nathan Jongenburger (Div. 7 boys, bronze in 100 back) rounded out the individual medalists.

A38 Abbotsford News Thursday, August 22, 2013

AHL schedule makers ‘very accommodating’ to Heat: Walter greater opportunity to take the pulse of the farm team in person – general manager Mike Gillis was at the AESC for multiple Wolves games last season. The Canucks’ interest in locating their AHL affiliate in Abbotsford on a permanent basis is no secret –  the NHL club was in talks to move to former Peoria Rivermen franchise here last spring, but were unable to come to an agreement and ended up in Utica. “I don’t know what the future brings,” Walter said, “but certainly these seven games will be good not only for our situation, but the Canucks getting a chance to be closer to their affiliate.” ICE CHIPS: • The Heat have not had any preseason games vs. AHL opponents the past two seasons, owing to their farflung location relative to the rest of the league. •  To promote the games vs. the Canucks farm team, the Heat are offering a Comets flex pack starting at $81, which features six tickets that can be used for Utica games at the AESC in any combination. Packages purchased by Sept. 22 will also include a free ticket to the preseason game. •  Proceeds from the 50/50 draw and chucka-puck contest at the preseason game will be donated to Canuck Place Abbotsford.

‘An honour’ to join ’Caps system

From A35

Knight said. “He applies himself in every practice session and every game, and I think it’s that consistency that’s finally starting to come through, and he’s been recognized for that. He’s a fine athletic specimen –  he’s got great speed and a good left foot, which is something that’s always of interest at the next level, because there’s not too many of those around.” Mulama, who would have been going into Grade 9 at Yale Secondary, acknowledged that billeting in Burnaby is “going to be tough,” but noted it’s close enough for his parents Martin and Grace to visit frequently. “It’s an honour to be in the Whitecaps program right now, but it’s my first step in the process,” he said. “I have to work harder to be in the MLS first team one day.”

Gertrude LASKOWSKI, Janet Penfrid (Mysdke) (1922-2013) Janet was born in Seattle on August 5, 1922. After having served the Lord most of her life, she now lives forever with the Lord Jesus, having passed into His presence on August 8th, 2013. With her family of Norwegian background she became part of Emmanuel Bible Church, made a public confession of Christ at age 17. Janet graduated from Prairie Bible Institute in 1945 and went to Brazil as a missionary with the mission Crossworld, formerly Unevangelized Fields Mission. She met and married missionary Ted Laskowski of the same Mission and with him served in Brazil for 40 years. For 12 years she was the hospitality arranger of the Mission Base “Grand Central”type hostel in the port city of Belem at the mouth of the Amazon. She is survived by husband Ted, daughter Joanne and son Philip and their spouses, and her sister Thelma and youngest brother, Norman, as well as five grandchildren and twelve greatgrandchildren. On retiring in 1988 in Canada, Janet accompanied her husband’s ministries in churches and to the local Portuguese immigrant fruit farmers of the South Okanagan in central British Columbia. For these they had a weekly Portuguese gospel radio program, which Ted recorded in his home studio and which were aired on the local radio station in Osoyoos. In 1997 they moved to Abbotsford, on BC’s lower mainland, just two hours from their children living in the Seattle area. If alive today, she would say, “Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Immanuel Fellowship Baptist Church, 2950 Blue Jay Street, Abbotsford, BC.
