Grass fire a scary battle

Riding for Fun and Competition

By FRANK BUCHOLTZ Aldergrove Star

Langley Township firefighters fought a stubborn grass fire adjacent to Aldergrove Athletic Park on Monday evening. The fire department was called to the site near 26A Avenue and 268 Street at 5:37 p.m. Assistant chief Pat Walker said the grass on the property was burning, and eventually about one and one-half acres was consumed. Firefighters were fortunate that the wind was not strong, and they had access to a hydrant near the Kinsmen Community Centre. Nonetheless, it was a difficult fire to fight. Hall 3 fulltime firefighters were the first responders, and they were backed up by paid call firefighters from halls 3 and 7. Walker said the firefighters encountered some steep terrain and formed a ring around the fire to prevent it from spreading to neighbouring properties. The cause is not known, he said. Walker said the grass fire could have been much worse, and illustrates why the Township is delaying the start of the burning season, which normally runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31. He said burning will remain closed until further notice, and added there needs to be more moisture in the ground for it to be safe to do outdoor burning. He said the burning season can be extended into November to make up for the lost time in September.

Car-truck collision fatal Aldergrove Star

Levi Wagner competed in the poles event at the Langley Riders Play Day on Sunday, Sept. 8 at the Riders’ Brookswood arena. The competition season is coming to an end for the club for another year.

A man has died following a collision Tuesday morning in West Abbotsford at the intersection of Lefeuvre and Huntingdon (aka 8 Ave.) roads. The crash occurred at approximately 9:35 Tuesday morning, Sept. 10, when, according to police, a dump truck collided with a 2005 Toyota Corolla. Preliminary reports say the truck was travelling east on Huntingdon when it collided with the Corolla, which was going south on Lefeuvre. Stop signs are located on Lefeuvre, but there are none at Huntingdon at that intersection. Both the truck and the Toyota went off the road, on the south side of Huntingdon. The truck went down the embankment, while the Toyota, which was severely damaged in the crash, ended up in some bushes just off the road. The driver of the Toyota was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the dump truck was not seriously injured. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said impairment is not considered a factor in the crash. “The Abbotsford Police Department offers condolences to the friends and family of the man who lost his life in this tragic crash,� MacDonald said. Police closed Huntingdon Road from Bradner Road to 272 Street and Leufevre Road was closed from Zero Avenue to King Road. Police collision reconstructionists were on the scene, and the roads were closed for several hours.

Blueberry industry balked at Langley bylaw By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star

Some blueberry farmers have told Langley Township a bylaw that aims to limit the use of propane cannons unfairly singled them out, according to a June 17 provincial government briefing note released under freedom of information (FOI) regulations. The note also shows the Township of Langley could have instituted a bird trapping program to reduce the need for the controversial bird scare devices, but chose not to. The three-page document was prepared by agricultural ministry staff for minister Pat Pimm, who approved the bylaw the day after the note was prepared. The briefing note amounts to a brief executive summary of the process that produced the Langley bylaw which, among other things, requires blueberry farmers to get a $125-a-year licence to register their bird scare devices with

the Township of Langley as well as post a notice before they use one. The briefing note and a letter to the Township mayor from the agriculture minister were released online in response to a request from an unnamed individual for “all correspondence between Langley Township and the Minister’s Office and all correspondence between the Minister and his Staff regarding Langley’s approval [of the bylaw]” between May 1 and June 30. The province routinely posts the results of FOI requests online at www. openinfo.gov.bc.ca. The ministry edited out two sections of the briefing note, citing privacy regulations. The briefing note says representatives of the blueberry industry supported “most elements” of the bylaw, but not those two requirements. “They have expressed concern that the registration requirement

the noisemakers have on local steeds, had little to say about the bylaw. However, an unnamed “local Langley horse group were [sic] quite critical that there were insufficient restrictions on the use of propane cannons.” The provincial agriculture ministry has been promoting “addressing starling population control” through trapping as a way of reducing the need for blueberry cannons by cutting the number of the berrymunching birds, the note observes. It suggests Langley Township could have won approval for such a program, but chose not to apply, noting the bylaw, as submitted, “stopped short of implementing additional measures such as starling trapping.” As well, it says the Township also had the option of adopting suggested provincial government guidelines for “edge planning,” which would

Another one of Langley’s prolific property offenders has been arrested thanks to the targeted efforts of Langley RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit. Cody John Ball, 24, of Aldergrove is now in custody and appeared in court again Sept. 10. On Sept. 4, police allegedly observed Ball driving a white Chevrolet Cavalier in the Aldergrove area. The SEU officers knew Ball to be a prohibited driver and queries of the licence plate showed they should be attached to a brown Oldsmobile Intrigue. The officers attempted to conduct a vehicle stop and arrest Ball for prohibited driving when Ball appeared to intentionally back his vehicle into an unmarked police car. Ball fled at a high rate of speed and the officers, giving regard to public safety, did not initiate a pursuit. Charges were immediately forwarded to Crown Counsel for approval. The following evening, Ball was again observed driving by members of the Street Enforcement Unit and again, no attempts were made to affect his arrest to ensure public safety. A short time later, Ball was taken into custody without incident when he returned to his residence. Ball was remanded in custody and has been charged with two counts of driving while disqualified, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.

Robbery suspect is now back in custody Aldergrove Star

Last week, Langley RCMP released a picture of one of its most wanted “prolific property offenders” and over the weekend, he was caught committing more property crimes, say police. Police put out an arrest warrant for David Walter Eng, 37, who was caught on Monday with stolen property and break-in tools, said police. He is currently in jail and appeared in court on Tuesday, facing a charge of theft and possession of break-in tools. Last Thursday, police released Eng’s picture and said he was a suspect in a recent break-in at the Muse apartments in the 20200 block of David Walter Eng Fraser Highway. Investigators believe Eng and another man, 31-yearold Langley resident Shane Olsen, damaged an access door to get into the secure parking lot. Several storage lockers were ransacked and property was removed. According to police, the pair then allegedly stole a Jeep Cherokee and forced the exit gate to open, damaging the lift mechanism in the process. Olsen was arrested by Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit last week. Eng has a long criminal history and was found guilty of theft under $5,000 in May.

require landscaping and, ideally, “spatial buffers” of 600 metres or more to separate farms from nearby residential developments. The briefing note also says the Township had the option of adopting provincial guidelines for residential uses on farmland which would restrict the size and location of such housing. The June 18 letter from Pimm to Township mayor Jack Froese simply confirms the minister’s approval of the bylaws, calling the use of propane cannons “a difficult issue to address” and praising the Langley regulations as “a positive step in striking a positive balance in recognizing the interests of farmers and other citizens living near and using the lands around existing farms in the Agricultural Land Reserve.”

Enforcement of the new regulations governing propane cannons in Langley Township began in July, following their final approval on June 24 by Langley Township council by a 7-1 vote. Councillor Kim Richter cast the only vote against the bylaws. Councillor Grant Ward, who did not attend the meeting, supported the measures in previous votes. There is nothing in the new bylaws about banning the controversial cannons because the ministry, which has the final say on any farming regulations, made it clear that any attempt at imposing an outright ban would be overturned under right-to-farm laws. The new Township bylaws restrict how often the cannons can be fired, allowing one firing every

five minutes for a single cannon. It also required a 100-metre setback from horse trails, something that already appears to exist, the note says. “The Township reports that no current blueberry farms are impacted by the setback to horse trails.” The bylaw sets escalating fines for violating the rules, $150 for a first offence, $350 for a second and $500 for a third and any subsequent offence. The regulations were drafted by the Propane Cannon Task Force, which was created by the municipal Agricultural Advisory Committee. During a public hearing in January, the task force heard from 25 speakers, all critical of blueberry cannons for disturbing residents and frightening horses. Most demanded an outright ban.

VICTORIA – Local politicians from across B.C. are in Vancouver Sept. 16 to 20 to take part in the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. There will be trivia reported as news, such as the cost of hotels. Suggestions to license mobility scooters or lower speed limits to 40 km/h, dreamed up in Vancouver Island retirement locales, will be rejected by delegates from the rest of the province. Serious discussion will revolve around a report by a UBCM executive committee to reshape the financial relationship between the province and local governments. If this proposal gets the support it deserves, Premier Christy Clark’s government will be asked to undo a couple of decades of political meddling in that relationship. One problem for local governments is that they depend on property tax, a stable source of revenue but one that has no relationship to the property owner’s ability to pay. It tends to load costs onto lower-income groups such as seniors and renters. Economic growth results mainly in increased corporate and personal income tax revenues as well as sales taxes, which aren’t shared with local governments. One key proposal is to return to a system of revenue sharing grants introduced by the Social Credit government in the 1980s. They were funded by one point each

from personal and corporate income tax and six per cent of sales, fuel and resource tax revenues, thus increasing in years when provincial revenues were strong. The UBCM proposal is to put a share of provincial revenues into an infrastructure bank, to be distributed by the organization on a more stable basis. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard, one of the authors of the report, uses a basketball analogy to describe the current system of federalprovincial grants for road and bridge projects. It’s a “jump ball,” where communities have to apply to a fund when it’s offered and then see who gets it. Even if a community wins the jump ball, they may find themselves with costs inflated by a hot construction market and an arbitrary deadline to get the job done. Then there are new regulations imposed by senior governments. The most dramatic example these days is a 2020 federal deadline for Greater Victoria to construct landbased sewage treatment. Even with federal and provincial cost sharing, this project is going to land heavily on property tax bills, including those of pensioners and poor renters who will have it passed on to them. Leonard points to another arbitrary system, provincial facilities that pay grants in lieu of property taxes. Saanich is home to the University

of Victoria, a community of 25,000 people that needs water and sewer service, as well as police and fire protection. Saanich gets an annual grant in lieu of property taxes of $120,000 for UVic, enough to cover wages and benefits for one cop and maybe some gas money. Cariboo Regional District chair Al Richmond, co-chair of the UBCM committee, is concerned about new water and flood protection legislation the province is preparing to impose. His district and others like it have thousands of kilometres of riverfront, with relatively few property owners. Interior communities also want BC Hydro to pay something for power lines, as is now being done with some aboriginal territories. Local politicians will be expecting a sympathetic ear from the new version of the B.C. Liberal government. Former Quesnel councillor Coralee Oakes is the new community, sport and cultural development minister, with direct responsibility for local government issues. And one of the original members of this UBCM committee was former Langley City mayor Peter Fassbender, who is now minister of education.

Aldergrove Financial Group opens downtown Abbotsford branch By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove Financial Group is celebrating the grand opening of their newest location, the Abbotsford Community Branch on Saturday, Sept. 14. It is the Aldergrove Credit Union’s sixth branch and the third branch in Abbotsford. All six branches are full service, with staff offering a complete range of financial services, including personal and business banking, borrowing, investing, insurance including Autoplan, and financial planning. “We saw it as an expansion of our current footprint in West Abbotsford, at Mount Lehman Centre and Matsqui Village, that would allow the opportunity for growth and service to our East Abbotsford customers,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl. “While many of our peers are going smaller, with less staff and operating costs, we are here for the long haul.” Hartl said the new branch will start with eight staff in the banking area, two insurance agents and one financial planner, and has room to grow larger. With 19,000 members, Aldergrove Credit Union has seen significant growth over the past 12 years, with assets having increased from $300 million to $540 million today. The other three branches

are in Langley Township, at Murrayville, along with the two original branches at 272 Street and 248 Street in Aldergrove. The newly-built, three-storey building at the corner of Essendene and Gladys Avenue totals 5,500 square feet. The Abbotsford Community Branch is open six days a week, from Monday to Saturday, and also has plenty of free parking as well as a walk-up ATM. “We are extremely happy to open our new location and want to celebrate with the entire community,” says Hartl. Following Saturday’s ribbon cutting at 9:30 a.m. with Hartl and Mayor Banman, the branch will host children’s activities with a clown, animal balloons and face painting until 3 p.m. A gourmet hot dog barbecue lunch will operate from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Country 107.1 will be broadcasting live from the branch throughout the day. There will be random draws for prizes from downtown Abbotsford merchants, as well as a grand prize of $1,000 cash from the branch. The Abbotsford Community Branch address is #100 – 2600 Gladys Avenue (at Essendene), Abbotsford. Aldergrove Financial Group will be offering many grand opening specials at all of their locations, along with free insurance quotes, and financial assessments.

Fraser Health launches toll free number Aldergrove Star

Accessing health-related community services is now easier thanks to Fraser Health’s new toll-free Home Health Service Line. Individuals who require information about services for themselves or family members regardless of where they live in the Fraser Health region, can call

a toll-free number: 1-855-4122121, seven days a week from 8:30 – 4:30 p.m., to speak with trained staff who can provide on-the-spot service in multiple languages. Often, people ask themselves: ‘Can Mom stay home safely by herself?’ ‘Who will help Dad with his personal care when I’m at work?’ ‘I no longer think I can

live at home alone. I think I need some help, but what is available?’ If you or anyone you know are asking these types of questions, call the Home Health Service Line. A trained staff member will help identify your health-related needs and will refer you to the services you require or arrange for a clinic or home visit. Home Health services

include: home support (bathing/grooming/toileting/feeding); in-home health care; nursing clinics in all communities; day programs for seniors; and services to give caregivers a break. Current Home Health clients can continue to call their local Home Health office for assistance.

After dipping their wheels into the ocean in White Rock, 26 cyclists with the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride passed through Aldergrove on Thursday, Sept. 5, on their marathon 17-day ride across Canada to raise money and awareness for the fight against childhood cancers.

Coast to coast for the kids By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star

After dipping their wheels into the ocean in White Rock, 26 cyclists with the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride stopped at the Langley Sears for a quick breakfast and some cheers of support on Thursday, Sept. 5. As quickly as they arrived, the cyclists were off again, beginning their marathon 17-day ride across Canada to raise money and awareness for the fight against childhood cancers. Moving the crowd to tears, Patrick Sullivan, of Team Finn, shared the story of his toddler’s cancer battle. “I ride for Finn, who embraced the life he was given,� said Sullivan. His son Finn died of cancer in 2008. He was only three. He held up the courage beads

his son was given at B.C. Children’s Hospital, each bead given for another surgery or therapy Finn had to brave his way through. “I ask you not to say someone lost their battle with cancer. Finn died but he never lost a battle.� Through his tears, Sullivan talked about some of Finn’s battles, like having surgeons cut through the boy’s abdomen and pancreas to remove a tumour the size of a baseball. “Kids go through hell,� he said. These are the reasons we ride, said Jeff Rushton, the founder of the Sears Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation. Langley Sears manager, Signe Bell, stressed that 100 per cent of funds raised at Sears go directly to kids with cancer, research and B.C. Children’s Hospital. “I want customers to know that

nothing goes to costs or fees. It all goes directly to the cause,� said Bell. Sears have donation boxes at the cash register and will be holding fundraising events around the cause. Now into its sixth year, the ride has raised $6 million in B.C. and $30 million across Canada. And the money is making a difference. Positive outcomes for children diagnosed with cancer is growing much higher, with 70 per cent becoming long-term survivors. Emily Degroot is a nurse who works at the children’s hospital in Moncton, NB. It’s her first time riding. “I get to ride the first half and then I will be a medic for the other half the ride,� she said. To learn more go to searsnationalkidscancerride.com

David Peckham Heads off to the Interior

David Peckham joined the Otter Co-op Feed sales team in December of 1992 at our Aldergrove location. David has recently made the move to join the Armstrong operation to serve our dairy customers in the interior as well as to expand our sales in dairy feeds and Value Added products in the region. His experience and expertise in hay and silage management and herd knowledge will be a true asset to our customers as we grow our service in the Armstrong and surrounding areas. We wish David and his family much happiness and success in their new adventure.

Otter Co-op Welcomes

Tim Marshall

Otter Co-op is excited to announce the appointment of Tim Marshall as our Nutritionist/ Technical Service Manager. Tim will bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to our group with his 32 years of service in the feed industry. His expertise in nutrition, purchasing, technical service and sales will be instrumental in our growth and progress for future. We are looking forward to his positive contribution to our already growing business.

Ian Flatt Retires

After 32 years with Otter Co-op Friday, August 30th was a day of mixed emotion as staff and customers shared a farewell cake for Ian Flatt as he retired from Otter Co-op after thirty-two years. Ian started with Otter in April of 1981 in the Sporting Goods Department. At that time the Hardware and Agro Departments were separate and Ian started on the Hardware side. Eventually the two departments merged and Ian was promoted to Hardware Supervisor and eventually to Hardware Manager. Never a request too large – be it from a customer or staff member – Ian was always willing to help and dedicated to making his department a success. Ian and his wife Lois live in Abbotsford; have two grown sons, one daughter-in-law and two grandsons. From everyone at Otter Co-op we wish Ian and Lois a long and happy well deserved retirement. Congratulations!

The fall season is upon us! President’s Message:

COMMUNITY

As I am writing my report, I realize that Fall is upon us: leaves falling off trees, dark mornings, and much cooler days. It is so nice to live in a place where we can experience the changing seasons. So too at the Retail Center, where we are shifting to Fall and Winter clothing, replacing barbeques with snow shovels, and more of us meeting up with friends in the coffee shop.

raspberry social CANADA DAY

There was a great turn out for the Canada Day Raspberry Social at Otter Co-op. Approximately 700 people stopped by for the celebration and enjoyed the Raspberry Shortcake, music by Gracie & the Guys and a display put on by The BC Pioneer Truck Society. There were $968.41 received in donations which we were very happy to be able to present to The Langley Hospice Society.

During the summer our five gas bars each held a Customer Appreciation Day. They served free hot dogs, cookies and refreshments. There was also lot of prizes to be won including the Grand Prize of a $500 Co-op Gift Card at each of the Gas Bars. Thank you to everyone that stopped by to partake in our Customer Appreciation Celebrations.

PHONE # _________________________

I am able to report that at the end of Period #6, Otter overall sales were 1.5% ahead of last year at this same time. Not a great increase, but definitely something we are proud of with the tight economy, increased competition, and rise in cross-border shopping. Sales increases have been seen in our feed, pharmacy, and general merchandise divisions. Our bulk petroleum division has seen a nice increase in bulk delivered litres to farm and commercial business, but we have seen a significant decrease in litres delivered to reseller gas bars. And with the increase in cross border shopping, our food and gas bar divisions have both seen a decline in sales this past summer. Hopefully with everyone over their vacations, the kids back in school, and the line ups at the border getting longer, this trend will even out and people will spend more time shopping at home. Sales decreases in these divisions are definitely affecting our bottom line so far this year, and we are off of last years’ savings at this time by over 50%. Some exciting events at Otter the first half of our 2013 year include the purchase of a feed mill operation in Armstrong, and the planning of a new bulk plant, cardlock, gas bar, convenience store and office space in Chilliwack. Our sales continue to grow in the interior, and we are pleased to announce that our Chilliwack project is going to tender this month, with plans to begin construction in October. The Chilliwack site is projected to add in excess of $35 million a year in sales, and is a great fit to our trading area and the customers we already serve there. We continue to work towards an upgrade at our 248th cardlock and gas bar site, and plans continue on a gas bar and convenience store on Highway 11 between Abbotsford and Mission. Your Co-op board, management and staff continue to work diligently on keeping Otter a growing, diverse and profitable business for our members, and we look forward to serving you the rest of the year. I’d like to take this opportunity to again thank our members for their continued support, as well as all of our great team members here for their continued work in making Otter the great place to shop, whether it be for petroleum, feed, general merchandise, pharmacy or food. Stop by during Equity Days, say hello, and share in your portion of the $5.88 million going back to members based on their purchases in 2012; we hope to see you here at the Co-op!

Be Wild Animal Aware Langley Township is full of wildlife WARNING Langley has a large habitat and people share the area with deer population animals including bears, cougars, and USE CAUTION ON ROADS coyotes. Residents throughout Langley need not be continually on alert, but action can be taken to deter wild animals if they are spotted in your area. Parents should teach children what to do if they encounter these animals, especially if they play by themselves in areas that wildlife frequent or have been seen in the past. To help people coexist with creatures that are simply trying to survive but can be dangerous if provoked, the following information is offered:

Bears: are very active this time of year as they search for food

to fatten up for hibernation. Bears have a keen sense of smell and garbage and other food sources could easily attract a bear to your neighbourhood. Once they get a taste of human food, bears may not want to go back to natural food sources and could lose their fear of people. A bear’s movement is mostly dictated by food availability, so if it is not available, the bear will move on. Langley has had bear sightings this year. Please do your part to prevent human/wildlife conflict and keep bears from having to be destroyed. If you encounter a bear, do not run. Act big and loud, and back away slowly to a safe place.

Cougars: can have kittens throughout the year and family groups can be seen at any time. Cougars survive on natural food sources found in the wild, primarily deer. Cougar attacks on humans are highly unlikely. However, if you encounter a cougar, do not run. Pick children up immediately and talk to the cougar in a confident voice. Act big by waving sticks and branches, and back away slowly while still facing the cougar. If it attacks, fight back.

employment opportunity Firefighters Wanted

The Township of Langley Fire Department is currently accepting applications for paidcall firefighter positions in our Aldergrove, Brookswood, Fort Langley, Murrayville, Otter, Walnut Grove, and Willoughby Fire Halls. Applicants must be current residents of Langley Township. If you are a motivated individual, physically fit, and over 19 years of age, you may have a future in firefighting. Selected candidates will be required to complete a Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) and a medical examination. For more information, contact 604.532.7500 or pick up an application at Fire Hall 6, 22170 - 50 Avenue, Monday to Friday, between 8:30am and 4:30pm. An information meeting will be held Wednesday, September 18 at 7pm. Applications close Friday, September 27 at 4pm. Please note: • Only applicants receiving interviews will be contacted. • We thank you in advance for your application. • Those short-listed will be requested to provide a recent work reference from a non-family member. Present employer and previous fire departments are preferred references. Township Fire Department 604.532.7500

Coyotes: have the largest population of potentially dangerous

wildlife in the area and can be seen year round, even in residential areas. Family groups have been regularly seen around Langley. Coyotes are bold and easily lose their natural fear of people. Never feed a coyote. If you encounter a coyote, scare it off by making loud noise or throwing something at it to make it afraid. Never ignore a coyote. If it continues to approach, do not run. Maintain eye contact, pick up small pets or children, and slowly move to an area of increased activity.

In Residential Areas: Reduce the smell of food by keeping barbecues clean. Keep pet food inside. Garbage is the biggest attraction for bears so keep it secure and inaccessible to wildlife. Do not leave garbage cans out overnight: keep them in the house, a locked garage, or secured outbuilding that cannot be broken into by large, smart bears. Put them out only on the morning of collection. If you are worried about odour, keep garbage in the freezer until collection day. Do not use bird feeders, as they attract bears and the birds do not need seeds when other natural food sources are available.

In Agricultural Areas: Protect your investment by keeping fences secure and free of damage that predators can use for access. Coyotes burrow, so ensure surrounding netting goes deep into the ground. Use electric fencing to deter bears from blueberries and beehives, and pick berries and fruit as they ripen. Be vigilant with livestock and keep them secure. Farm animals are usually killed at night, so bring them inside in the evening. It is an offence to attract wildlife into a residential neighbourhood. Those who do not take steps to deter bears and other wild creatures can face a fine of up to $575. To report poachers or polluters or if you have a problem with wildlife call: Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) 1.877.952.7277

‘Durti Gurlz’ rock the podium at Femsport Aldergrove Star

It was hard to miss the Durti Gurlz this past Saturday at the Vancouver Femsport Challenge. Held in the Shipbuilder’s Square at Lonsdale, the event proved to be a huge success for the Aldergrove team. As a sanctioned Femsport Training facility, Aldergrove’s Apocalypse Training and Fitness now proudly boasts the 2013 Vancouver Femsport Grand Champion. Cindy Legare brought home the gold with an amazing display of athleticism, sportsmanship and dedication. Earning a top spot as second place team in the open division, Legare, Erin Schwaiger, and Samantha Hladun-Smith beamed with pride while receiving their silver medals. The Durti Gurlz and their supporters were cheering loudly as Tara Strachan, Amber Wold and Isabella Touchet brought home the bronze in the novice teams division. Wold went on to receive second place in the novice individual category. The Durti Gurlz novice teams also placed fourth and fifth at the event. “We wouldn’t be here without the encouragement, support, and expertise of Apocalypse, its trainers and our

coach,” says Schwaiger. This, and similar, sentiments are shared by all team members, including Yvonne Adderley, who says, “We’re like a family. I have so much love for these women. This training has changed my life and I am so proud not only of myself but of my whole team.” The women, led by coach John Coyle, proved worthy of their “Durti” name. They were indeed “Determined, Unstoppable, Relentless, Tenacious and Irresistible” as they dominated kettle bell runs, 120 pound tire drags, 275 pound tire flips, obstacle courses and box jumps. It’s not every day a local team like this is selected for sponsorship by some big names but the Durti Gurlz earned it. PVL Essentials, the natural support supplement brand, and Posse Ink, teamed up to show their support for the Durti Gurlz. Says Legare, “We are so grateful for these sponsorships. I hope we made them proud. A huge thank you to PVL for powering us up and Posse Ink for our team shirts screening but mostly for believing in this team.” Eager for their next challenge, the Durti Gurlz are back at the gym for some meta-

Langley Rugby takes on Richmond in opener By STUART CROWLEY Aldergrove Star

The Langley Rugby Club kicked off its 44th season Saturday under sunny skies at Crush Crescent. This season began the way last season ended, with a pair of tough matches against Richmond. The second division game was the epitome of early-season rugby, with both sides committing numerous handling errors. Neither team had much of an edge in possession or territory, but Richmond was able to take advantage of a Langley miscue on the stroke of halftime and scored in the corner to go in to the break up 5-0. The second half showed more early season jitters and rust from both sides. Proceedings became more settled, and Langley began to enjoy long stretches of possession in the first part of the second half. Langley’s men of the match #8 Trevor Steamo and scrum half Ryan Yeomans both showed some creativity and strength in breaking the Richmond line for some significant gains in territory. The Langley forwards supported well and fly half Stan Garcia eventually punched over a score to tie the game at 5 apiece. Richmond turned up the heat, with their #10 making several useful kicks to pin Langley deep within their own 22 meter line. Richmond turned the ball over, and despite lock Brian Anderson making several consecutive tackles in a strong defensive effort, Richmond scored their second try of the game, which was converted for a 12-5 lead. Langley responded well, marching the length of the field from a missed Richmond penalty kick at goal. With Richmond on their heels, Yeomans chipped over the Richmond fullback, gathered the ball and touched down for Langley’s second try. The conversion was missed, and Richmond remained in the lead 12-10. That was as close as Langley would get, as lapses in their defensive structure began to show. Richmond scored two more unconverted tries before the final whistle, for a final of 22-10.

Coach Rob Hayes was optimistic in the loss, however, saying, “When we were doing the basics well, we kept possession and moved forward consistently. Fitness was definitely an issue for us, though. We also have a bunch of new faces, which is awesome, but it takes time to come together as a team. As the season progresses, our fitness will improve and we’ll learn to play with one another, and I expect great things from our

second division team.” The first division match was up next, and started much the same as the second division game did, with early season errors evident. Langley fly half Stu Morrison kicked effectively early on, giving Langley good field position. The Langley forward pack looked comfortable with the new engagement rules from the start, imposing their will on Richmond at scrum

time. A high tackle from Richmond’s inside center allowed Langley fullback Sean Messenger to put the home team up 3-0 with the subsequent penalty kick. Continued kicking pressure from Morrison and Messenger kept the ball in Richmond territory for much of the first half. However, a penalty against Langley and the subsequent gain in field position for Richmond result-

ed in the game’s first try from the Richmond lineout. The score went unconverted to put the visitors up 5-3. Play opened up a bit more, with some excellent speed shown by back of the match Sterling Balzer on the wing. However, Richmond took advantage of an overlap out wide to touch down their second try of the match. After the restart, excellent work by Langley loose forwards Kolby Brezden and forward of the match Richard Pearce resulted in a turnover and penalty which Messenger made good on for a halftime score of 10-6 for Richmond. Discipline became an issue in the second half, with Langley prop Dustin Dickson shown a yellow card, and Richmond’s #8 following him to the sin bin shortly after. Richmond took advantage of the extra space on the field and counterattacked a poorly-judged Langley kick to score a converted try: 17-6 for Richmond. Messenger and the Richmond scrum half traded penalties to take the score to 20-9. At the 60 minute mark the referee decided the Richmond inside center had hightackled one too many Langley players on the day and booked him an appointment with league’s disciplinary committee with a red card a 15 minutes shy of full time. Langley took advantage of the extra man, with Pearce making a huge gain before Dickson made amends for his earlier yellow card, wrestling his way over the goal line for the try. The comeback wasn’t to be, however, as an unfortunate break allowed Richmond one more score before full time. Said Coach Hayes about the 25-14 loss, “It was a winnable game. We have a lot of talent, but we need to simplify our tactics and we’ll see success.” Langley has a bye week before visiting Abbotsford RFC at Exhibition Park.

Act of sportsmanship nets team ‘Musial Award’ By GARY AHUJA Aldergrove Star

It was the right thing to do. That is all that was going through the minds of Shannon Chick, Kristan Rodrigues and Shae Domitruk. This was back in late July, during a playoff game in the provincial championships between the Fraser Valley Fusion 97 fastpitch team and the Surrey Storm 97 at Victoria’s Helmcken Park. The Storm’s Raelyn Radovich had just belted a three-run home run over the centre-field fence, which tied the game. But while she was rounding first base, Radovich suffered a knee injury. She limped her way around second base and then third, but the pain became too much to bear and she collapsed. Since she had rounded third base and was between third and home, she could not stop and call for a pinch runner. And if a teammate or coach was to help her, she would be called out. That was when the trio sprung into action. Chick, Rodrigues and Domitruk, hoisted the fallen Radovich up and carried her to home plate so she could tag the base for the tying run. “If one of our girls happened (to get hurt) and fall, we would have wanted someone to step up and say we are going to take her home as well,” Chick said. She described the moment as very emotional, with the falling player

—  and many of the fans in attendance — moved to tears. “None of us really said anything, it just kind of happened,” said Domitruk. “I felt bad for her, she totally deserved the home run so we picked her up and carried her home,” Rodrigues said. The Fusion went on to win that game and eventually finished second at provincials. But something bigger than winning the silver medal also happened to the team of 16-year-old girls. “We are always on the look out for extraordinary stories of sportsmanship,” explained Marc Schreiber, the vice-president of the St. Louis Sports Commission. While the organization does accept nominations, most often they will select the award recipients through their own research. “We decide on the stories that we think rise to the level of deserving to be honour at the event,” Schreiber said. “And sure enough, we found what was printed in the Langley Times online,” he said, referring to the story in the Aug. 8 edition of The Times. The Fusion will receive the Musial Award on Nov. 9 in St. Louis, Missouri. Named for the late St. Louis Cardinals’ Hall of Famer Stan Musial, the annual event recognized the greatest moments and stories of sportsmanship. The award was formerly known as

The Fusion will be the first recipi- be honored,” it said in email informent from outside the United States, ing to the Fusion of their honour. “The remarkable on-field gesture Schreiber said. “In recognition of the team’s by your team reflects the remarkable

acts of sportsmanship we strive to highlight and that personify the class and character embodied by Stan the Man.” Stan the Man was the late Musial’s nickname. The award will be presented by two former members of the Central Washington softball team who in 2008 did the same with a fallen opponent, in a video that went viral. “We did not expect this,” said Chick, an Aldergrove resident. “It means a lot to us as team,” Rodrigues said about getting the award. The Fusion are hoping to raise enough money to send all 12 players and three coaches to St. Louis for the ceremony. Right now, airfare and accommodation is provided for just two people. “Hopefully we can raise enough for all 15 of us to go receive the award,” said coach Gord O’Grady. “It is not really a two-person award, it is a team award.” The estimated cost for a ticket to St. Louis is about $800 per person, so multiply that by 13 and it is $10,000 just for the airfare. The various Fusion teams are holding tryouts in the upcoming week and the focus will then shift to fundraising. Anyone wanting to help can donate online at www.langleysoftball. com/Langley-Fastball-Online-Store. aspx. And for donations greater than $300, the Fusion will display company logos on their team banner.

Boxing’s ‘Best of West vs East’ Aldergrove Star

The best of the best will meet Friday, Sept. 13 at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in downtown Langley. The WBC Canadian Championships will see the “Best from the East take on the Best from the West.” The newly formed World Boxing Council International Amateur System will see the first ever National team selected that evening. The day after the WBC Canadian Championships, the biggest fight of the decade will take

place when WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather takes on WBC Super Welterweight Champion Saul Alvarez. “The connection with the WBC is significant and meaningful,” says event organizer Dave Allison, of Langley City Boxing, the host club. “There are going to be some great fights and there is a certain electricity when you have the best fighting the best.” These associations have been in operation for years and have developed clubs, boxers, officials and fan base that has supported a revival of

amateur boxing in Canada. These associations have come together and formed a national association and have affiliated with the WBC. “When boxing fans see the WBC Canadian Championships they will see exciting boxing using the rules and standards of the 2016 Olympics. For the most part these rules have been used by the WBC affiliates for some years. IABA changed their rules for the 2016 trying to reverse the damage they have done to the sport. IABA is trying to go where the WBC affiliates are now,” said Allison.
