School district has funding for wage hikes MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
Langley School District has budgeted to pay for negotiated wage increases for its support staff, says board of education chair Wendy Johnson. “We had directed our secretarytreasurer to create a savings plan to find the money within our budget,” said Johnson. “We paid off our deficit in June so we don’t have a lot of money but we have enough.” She stressed that the money used to pay for the wage increases will not impact classrooms. “But our savings plan we are proposing still needs to be approved by the Ministry of Education,” said Johnson. “Ideally government should pay for wage increases but we are given this framework,” she added. A tentative two-year contract has been reached between the BC Public School Employers’ Association and CUPE BC, effectively halting a strike of 33,000 unionized public school staff in the province. On Tuesday, teachers had been told (by CUPE members) to expect a strike as early as Monday. CUPE BC represents 27,000 of the set-to-strike workers. The new deal provides union members a 3.5 per cent wage increase over the two years of the contract —one per cent on July 1, 2013 (retroactive), two per cent on Feb. 1, 2014, and 0.5 per cent on May 1, 2014. The deal, which would begin on July 1, 2012, is set to expire on June 30, 2014. Both sides have yet to ratify the deal.

Child’s smile is only reward Cops for Cancer rider needs Langley RCMP officer marks 10th year of involvement with fundraising bicycle ride MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
On Thursday morning, rain or shine, the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley ride to fight childhood cancers will launch its nine-day, 800 km ride, in Langley. It will mark Langley RCMP Const. Craig van Herk’s 10th year of involvement. He hasn’t ridden for the past several years, but has been behind the scenes organizing and providing support along the way. Despite the incredible number of hours it takes away from family time, van Herk
said he likely will be involved for another 10 years — for one very good reason. “When you meet a kid going through all the horrible things cancer brings to them and you see them smile — well that’s just it for me. “A smile from a child is great motivation to keep riding, to keep fundraising.” And raise funds, police do. Last year, Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley raised $420,000 for pediatric cancer research and for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp GoodTimes. Over the years, Cops for Cancer across

B.C. has raised more than $27 million, much of that also going to support families. “We interact with these kids and you realize how important the ride is. They have experienced more than all of us and they smile through it. Their courage . . . the way a child takes on cancer is like nothing we adults could do.” This year there are 10 junior team members either going through treatment or working through recovery. continued, PAGE 4

Township ‘respects’ privacy commissioner
DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
Dan FERGUSON/Langley Times
Rescue workers prepare to transport an Abbotsford man from the scene of a single vehicle crash in Langley at 204 Street and 62 Avenue Sunday afternoon to a waiting helicopter. It’s believed the driver crashed because of a medical condition. The man later died.
Medical reason likely cause of fatal crash DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
A 57-year-old Abbotsford man has died after losing control of his car, crossing four lanes of traffic, hitting a tree and stopping short of a building just north of the 204 Street overpass on Sunday. Langley RCMP believe the man suffered a major medical condition, like a heart attack, before his vehicle started crossing over a meridian and into oncoming traffic, said Const. Craig van Herk. He was airlifted to hospital but died en route, said police. The accident happened at 3 p.m. on 204
Street near 62 Avenue. An eyewitness told The Times the man may have suffered a heart attack or some other medical emergency. She said two people with first aid kits also witnessed the crash and looked after the driver until paramedics arrived on the scene. One of the first people to the scene had his level 3 industrial first aid and tried to help the man, said van Herk. No one else was injured in the crash. Rescue workers could be seen performing chest compressions on the driver before an air ambulance helicopter landed at a nearby parking lot.
The Township of Langley is asking the B.C. Supreme Court to overturn an order by the provincial Information and Privacy Commissioner, even though it has already obeyed the order in question. Preliminary versions of a storm water management plan for the Athenry Development project in Willoughby were handed over to civil engineer Jacob de Raadt before lawyer James Goulden filed a court application against their release on behalf of the Township. Goulden, a senior litigator with Vancouver law firm Bull Housser and Tupper, told The Times the documents were provided to de Raadt to show “respect” for the commissioner’s decision while the legal action was launched because the order could set a problem-creating precedent if it is allowed to stand. “We’re not trying to keep them [the Athenry documents] a secret,” Goulden told The Times during a telephone interview on Thursday. He said the court application was not a lawsuit directed against either de Raadt or the commissioner, but a petition requesting the court to rule on an “important” issue raised by the order. The Township application argues requiring it to release the draft versions of the documents sets a precedent that, among other things, could make it difficult for the municipality to keep its position secret during bargaining with outside contractors.
“This issue needs to be decided by the court,” Goulden said. Neither de Raadt nor the commissioner’s office has replied to the Township court application yet. No date for a court hearing has been set. de Raadt, who represents residents opposed to the planned Athenry condos and cultural centre, was banned from attending Township council meetings last year following complaints by some council members about his behaviour. At the time, de Raadt was also warned in writing to “cease publishing or delivering any defamatory or racist communications in respect of the Township, current or past staff or elected officials” and told all future communication with the Township must go through Bull Housser and Tupper. In a letter to council, Goulden said de Raadt made a number of “inappropriate” remarks in communications to the Township, including a reference to one person’s Irish ancestry. de Raadt has refused to comment on the allegations. Council also voted last year to have Bull Housser and Tupper send a letter to nine other people who oppose the Athenry project, advising them to direct all future correspondence to the law firm. Mayor Jack Froese said the nine were told to go through their lawyers because they had sued the Township and even though they had abandoned the lawsuit, there was still the possibility it could be revived.
158 tickets handed out in distracted driving blitz MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
The Langley plainclothes police officer hadn’t even set up at the Husky gas station at Fraser Highway and Highway 10, and already he had spotted a driver texting on Tuesday afternoon. Like shooting fish in a barrel, Langley RCMP were pulling over vehicle after vehicle, with drivers being handed down a $167 ticket for texting or talking on their cellphones. In just four hours (two hours each day), the teams issued 158 violation tickets, made arrests for drug possession, prohib-

ited driving under the Criminal Code and impounded one vehicle. Over half of the tickets were issued for distracted driving followed by seatbelt and intersection safety. “Mostly people are texting on their lap or on their console which forces them to look down,” said Langley RCMP spokesperson Const. Craig van Herk, who was at one of the four intersections police were handing out tickets on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Those intersections, like 200 Street and the Bypass, were chosen because they are high crash locations in Langley, said Leanne Cassap, ICBC’s road safety co-ordinator.

Police are in the midst of a monthlong crackdown targeting drivers who are still using cellphones while behind the wheel. Distracted driving is the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C., behind speeding and impaired driving. “There is truly nothing worse than having to be that police officer knocking on that door at night. I don’t think people realize how dangerous texting can be,” said van Herk. Between 2008 and 2012, 91 people were killed in B.C. due to driver distractions, such as using a hand-held electronic device while driving, said ICBC.

RCMP and municipal police “from Ocean to Mountains.” have partnered with ICBC for the distracted drivers campaign. “It’s a co-ordinated effort to change drivers’ behaviour,” said Cassap. Volunteers from Cell Watch, similar to Speed Watch, will also be out documenting the license plates of distracted drivers. A 2012 Ipsos Reid survey, conducted on behalf of ICBC, showed that B.C. drivers consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, yet 40 per cent of those who own cell phones admit they’ve used their hand-held phone while driving.

“We don’t use any of the donor money for accommodations or food along the nine days of riding,” said van Herk. That means they hope for sponsors like hotels to put them up. But for a few of the nights on this tour, they will be sleeping on the floor of a rec centre. “After riding 135 km in a day, a bed is really comforting but we recognize we aren’t here for our comfort,” he said. “Even riding in the rain, which is what we mostly do, is nothing compared to what these kids go through.” The 26-member team and their full police escorts will visit six schools and several community locations, including the Coast Capital Walnut Grove and 200 Street branches.

The ride, that kicks off at Aldergrove Secondary, will see cops ride for nine days, covering 800 km of road and speaking at dozens of schools. They will travel through several communities including Surrey, Delta, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Mission, Hope and Boston Bar. Unfortunately, the tour has five memorial stops to honour junior members who have died of cancer, said van Herk. Aldergrove’s Teresa Sperger will again greet the Cops for Cancer riding team at Shortreed Elementary in memory of her son Christopher, who passed away six years ago after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was a student at Shortreed. Hanging in van Herk’s office is a framed picture of Sperger and him.
Sperger was one of the first junior members van Herk got to know and shared a bond with. “Christopher was a really special kid and losing him has been really tough,” said van Herk, a father of two. Each police officer, auxiliary member and emergency personnel involved in the ride has to do their own fundraising through the year, through car washes, head shaves, barbecues, and any fundraisers at the detachment. Community sponsors also give generously with donations, said van Herk. Mark Peterse, an auxiliary officer who co-owns the family-run Cedarbrook Bakery in Brookswood, had done all his fundraising and training and was ready to join the ride again this year. But two weeks ago, he was called to training at the RCMP’s Depot in Regina.
Several people from one vehicle, including two children, were taken to hospital after a collision in the 22400 block of 56 Avenue on Friday night. Just before 7 p.m., two Honda compact cars collided, sending a grey Honda Civic into the ditch. That vehicle carried four people. The female driver was airlifted to hospital with broken bones. The passenger was taken to hospital
with facial injuries. A boy and girl were in the back. Both were taken to Langley Memorial Hospital. The girl may have had a bone broken and the boy was taken for observation, said Langley RCMP. The investigation into this crash is still in its early stages but alcohol or drugs don’t appear to be factors. The lone occupant of the other Honda wasn’t injured.

A change in attitude
roof of a major shift in the general attitude towards First Nations people came Sunday, with some 70,000 people taking part in a truth and reconciliation walk, part of a series of events in B.C. set up by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The commission was set up following an historic apology by the federal government in 2008 to First Nations people who either attended residential schools, or suffered from the effects of that failed government policy. In other words, the apology was offered to almost every individual of First Nations ancestry in the country. Residential schools were part of an overall federal government policy designed to integrate and assimilate native people into the Caucasian mainstream. Young natives were not allowed to speak their own languages and learn about their culture, and families were deliberately broken up. These were done on the premise that native people and their culture, which stretched back for millennia, were of little worth when compared to European culture. At the same time, there was a strong element of greed within this policy, because the people of British and French ancestry who had settled Canada in the 1800s wanted most of the native land and resources for themselves. Churches were used as the instruments of this policy, with church leaders believing this was an opportunity to turn First Nations people into European Christians who would have no interest in their own background or spiritual traditions. Of course, as has been proven in countries all over the world, this policy was an abject failure. But even worse than that, it did lasting harm to the fundamental institution of the family in almost every native community. When coupled with the paternalistic welfare system that continues today under the outdated Indian Act, this policy has caused tremendous harm to generations of First Nations. But many individuals, and some pioneering First Nations groups, are changing this negative into a positive. They are using their education, culture and skills to create more opportunities for themselves and their fellow native people. All levels of government now know they must consider the effect on native people before undergoing any major economic or social initiative. First Nations people are now partners in Canadian society, as they always should have been.

hould we be concerned that NDP leader Adrian Dix is stepping down? After all, other than the election campaign, he only worked 36 days last year. Slacker. Hold on. All the other MLAs only worked 36 days last year too. The Liberals have decided to cancel the fall sitting of the Legislature. It’s become commonplace to avoid, as much as possible, having the Legislature sit, likely because there the Opposition asks pointed questions the Liberals would rather not answer. After the Globe and Mail wrote a scathing piece about the cancellation of the fall sitting, Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Rustad made the following post on his Facebook page: “The Globe (and me, obviously) seems to think the Leg is a stage for the opposition and the columnists.” His rationale works because the governing Liberals don’t seem to think the Legislature is a place for them. It sparked a pretty good debate on his Facebook page. The following post from Rustad summed everything up. “My final word on this topic: Here’s my schedule for next week – Mon. on the road by 5:30 a.m., travel, meeting at 9, UBCM panel on reconciliation at 10, caucus meeting from 9 to 1 p.m., meetings from 2 till 5 then 3+ receptions that I’m expected to drop into going from 5 till 9. Tue, 7:30 to 12:30 Truth and Reconciliation paddle and TRC ceremony, 9 meetings from 1:30 till 5 p.m. then 5+ receptions that I’m supposed to support...” Rustad completely misses the point. No one questions that MLAs and certainly cabinet ministers are busy. We’re all busy. The question is whether we’re busy doing the right things. We elect MLAs to debate and vote on issues facing our province and, at the same time, be held accountable for the decisions they make that affect our lives. Attending functions and meetings is certainly important, but it shouldn’t be the most important part of an MLA’s job. Representing their constituents in the Legislature should be. —Prince George Free Press The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Safety concerns for Mountain students Editor: As a resident of the Willoughby area with three children in the school system, I must draw your attention to a serious and growing traffic safety problem in the R.E. Mountain area, specifically on 202A Street between 74 Avenue and the southern entrance of the school. This section of roadway has no safe pedestrian access and extremely poor lighting, forcing children to walk in competition with vehicles. With no alternative pedestrian access routes to the surrounding residential developments, there have been several close calls and near-misses. Parents are requesting an immediate solution. At one time, with limited density and development, when drivers were less distracted and there were a reasonable number of children in the area, it was not as serious a problem. This has changed, and we are seeking a solution before a tragedy occurs. With morning and after-school activities during the winter months, children are forced to walk down these streets in darkness, compounding the risk further. Even during peak school traffic times in daylight, children are risking their lives. Personally, I have witnessed several nearaccidents on this stretch of roadway. I have spoken to several other parents who are afraid to let their children walk to school due to this issue. Substantial traffic growth has occurred on 202A Street due to the following:
- the opening and continued development of the Langley Events Centre area, with access directly to and from 202A; - congestion and construction in the 208 Street corridor, driving traffic onto 202A via 80 and 74A Avenues; - maturity of families in Willoughby and surrounding neighbourhoods; and - continued development of residential areas in the surrounding neighbourhoods, and increased school populations. All stakeholders are well aware of these issues as the school system and infrastructure struggles to keep pace with development. The Township has recognized the need to work more closely with the school district, and this is one area with an immediate need. R.E. Mountain is bursting at the seams with over 1,100 students in a building designed for far fewer students. We have been told the Township will not develop the sidewalks until development occurs adjacent to the roadway, yet council continues to approve development outside the immediate school area. Without mature infrastructure, students must choose to walk down undeveloped roads or rely on vehicles for transportation, further exacerbating the traffic problem. Although we understand development costs and infrastructure stress is an issue for any growing community, it seems irresponsible to allow this situation to continue, knowing the epicentre of a community is the school,
where there is a concentration of traffic and pedestrians. Here are some simple and cost-effective temporary solutions available: - place temporary cement barriers or high visibility traffic control stanchions between the traffic lane and shoulder; - request a low speed zone be established; - place speed bumps along the road; - build a temporary asphalt sidewalk away from the roadway; and - place a low-rise asphalt divider between the lane and shoulder. We have been told temporary barriers are not considered adequate, due to snow clearing issues. I suggest this is a small problem, especially when the safety of the children over the year is compared to the scope of the snow clearing risk. These ideas should not be rejected so quickly by Township officials without considering the safety of the children. A Facebook page called RE Mountain Student Safety Now has been set up. As elected representatives of our municipal government with the power to help, I ask Langley Township council to recognize your responsibility, and protect our children. Let us do this now before a tragedy forces them to answer the question of why they did not act sooner. Dan Hunter, Langley
Some parting thoughts about Langley politics Editor: We finally broke ties with Langley Township after 40 years. We have sold our home in Aldergrove and are moving to Bradner in Abbotsford. It’s time to reflect on the two Langleys. Instead of common sense, we have organized disarray for someone’s gain We also have a lot of congestion and confusion. Abbotsford is not exempt from this syndrome. We are in the process of restoring my wife’s parents’ mobile home to today’s standards. We stripped it to the walls, upgraded everything to 2013 standards and added a gable roof to make it modern and appeal-
ing. That’s precisely what needs to be done to our Canadian constitution. I recently read the book The Big Shift, which contains thoughts on future Canadian trends. I am concerned about the attitude of deterioration in our communities. We have become victims of inadequate political management, with little planning for responsible outcomes. The name of the game is manipulate and tax, tax, tax. Bradner is very rural, but is seen as a cash cow for city hall. This is tolerated, because many people don’t care. The press must point out inadequacies and hold these
people to at least some accountability. Some politicians in the Township of Langley have used the press for their own purposes — people like Councillor Kim Richter and Councillor Grant Ward. Council and the administration must be challenged to keep our stewards in line — for the good of all. I wish to thank you for publishing my letters over the years. I believe that our democracy will only be preserved by standing up to the status quo — elected or otherwise. Harvey D. Schultz, Abbotsford
Many animals falling through the cracks Editor: As we’ve all noticed, the wildlife population seems to have tripled around Langley City due to the animals being displaced with the ever-increasing construction of bigger and better housing. As the homeless animal population swells in search of new digs, they are being met with the disdain of the property owners whose land they were unfortunate enough to cross. I have seen and heard of coyotes caught in illegal leghold traps, raccoon families burning in chimneys as people start their The
fireplaces, and the constant screech of brakes as vehicles try to avoid everything from ducks on the road to opossums to squirrels. But what’s to be done? Last week, I had occasion to search for assistance myself, as a peacock came strutting into our yard. As peacocks are not native to B.C., I knew he would not survive the winter. I called the SPCA, LAPS, Critter Care, and Mountainview Conservation Centre. All were very polite, but none would help. Not surprisingly, many people I spoke
to have similar stories to tell, as they too required aid in dealing with wild animals from time to time. The above organizations profess to care so much for animal welfare, yet do nothing when approached. This is so frustrating in a time when native habitat is being torn asunder and there’s such a need for real animal rescue. Wake up people. It’s time to organize and build a rescue shelter for all animals, not just a chosen few. Maureen Miller, Langley
Plenty spent on court battles Editor: Re: Langley Township sues over FOI request, (The Times, Sept. 19). This article begs the question: What is the Township council doing that must be so protected and kept secret? Is the requested information unavailable to only Mr. de Raadt, or to the general public also? Council spends a lot of our tax money in court battles. John Winter, Langley
Give back our streets Editor: I have lived in Fort Langley for 40 years, and nothing except taxes and traffic have increased. Our council does not seem to care about the security of our residents, only developers. Why will they not spend money on infrastructure? Our aging population (the ones who live here and pay taxes) get nothing. The roads are patched but worn with cracks on most of our streets, except for the elite downtown area. Sidewalks are a laughing matter. With luck, there is a white line on the road which cars park on. Streets are almost too narrow for cars to pass and we are expected to walk on them. School kids are forced to walk to school on 88 Avenue, on a sidewalk narrow enough that single file is necessary. They also have to duck under tree branches. Trattle Street sidewalk is part of the road with holes and broken pavement with puddles in the rainy season. For health reasons, I like to walk, but I shouldn’t have to drive out of town to do it. The people of Fort Langley should drive their cars downtown and fill the parking area. We could do our walking in the only area of the Fort not swept under the carpet. There isn’t a day that we haven’t had to dive off the road because of traffic, including buses. Bruce Johnson, Fort Langley

The campaign to decriminalize possession of marijuana rolled into Langley on Sunday afternoon with the arrival of the Sensible B.C. “Cannabus” and campaign director Dana Larsen. The bus pulled into the parking lot of the ICBC Driver Services office at Logan Avenue and 203 Street, where it was greeted by local organizer Randy Caine, who had already set up a table to collect signatures and sign up canvassers. Larsen said he was “cautiously optimistic” the campaign will get the votes it needs by Dec. 5. To succeed, it needs 10 per cent of registered voters to sign the petition in every one of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts, or about 400,000 signatures. “It’s certainly doable,” Larsen told The Times. “Where we’re at right now is about where we wanted to be. It’s not a slam-dunk or guarantee by any means, but things are looking pretty good.” Caine, the organizer for both the Langley and Fort Langley/Aldergrove ridings, said he was “incredibly optimistic” the campaign will gather enough signatures to get a province-
sion,” Caine said. The proposed B.C. law was inspired by a Seattle initiative, passed 11 years ago, that instructed law enforcement officers in the U.S. state to make marijuana “the lowest policing priority.” Sensible B.C. wants an amendment to the Police Act that would instruct officers not to spend “any time, money or resources on cases of simple possession of cannabis.” It would be called the Sensible Policing Act, and would, according to the campaign website, “effectively decrimiDan FERGUSON/Langley Times Dana Larsen is heading up the nalize the possession of cannabis in B.C., while leaving Sensible B.C. campaign. the rest of the laws in place.” “It’s less about drugs than wide vote on the Sensible B.C. reallocating funding for the proposal to end criminal pros- police,” Caine said. ecution for possessing small “Do we want to [keep spendamounts of marijuana. ing] $25 million a year on He said the Langley location, simple possession charges?” a site that is used for motor If Sensible B.C. succeeds in vehicle testing on weekdays, forcing a vote, it would only was chosen because it was a be the second time that such a well-travelled area and a public campaign has succeeded. place.

Get a head start on optimal health When it comes to maintaining good health, think of your body as a vehicle that will cruise into the future. If you want to avoid any road bumps, running out of fuel or risk fatal crash, it’s important to keep preventive care in mind.
kKRISTYL CLARK, TIMES REPORTER
With medical research advancing in leaps and bounds, people are now living a lot longer than they used to – this is especially true right here in B.C. According to the province’s most recent vital statistics report, we’re living longer than any of our fellow Canadians in neighbouring provinces. The 140th edition of the report by the Vital Statistics Agency notes that life expectancy climbed to 82 years, up from 81.7 years – the oldest person to die in 2011 lived to be 112 years. While we are celebrating far more birthdays than our ancestors, quantity of life doesn’t always measure up with quality. One may live to 95, but have various health ailments that keep them from enjoying the simplest day-today activities. When it comes to maintaining good health, think of your body as a vehicle that will cruise into the future. If you want to avoid any road bumps, running out of fuel or risk fatal crash, it’s important to keep preventive care in mind. Under the proverbial hood of good health three are major areas from the neck up that can reveal various health issues. Proper preventative care of your eyes, ears and teeth will keep you motoring full-speed-ahead into the next decade or longer.
EYES When’s the last time you had your eyes checked? The truth is most neglect visiting the optometrist until there is an issue with their vision, which can prove to be quite the gamble. Dr. Eva Kalicinsky, the owner of Brookswood Optometry, says annual eye exams are not only for eye health – they maintain general health as well. “Everything in our bodies is connected and can be the “window” to our overall health,” said the Langley optometrist. “Optometrists can help in detecting Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, brain tumors, vascular diseases and cancer of the eye.” While most people see their general practitioner and dentist once a year – the eye exam should be a part
of the yearly check, notes Dr. Kalicinsky. “We should not wait until a problem surfaces and causes serious damage. There are a lot of silent eye diseases that do not have obvious symptoms in the early stages,” she noted. A thorough eye exam helps identify the condition before it becomes too advanced and permanent damage has occurred. “I think any disease that affects one’s vision is serious, but there are varying degrees of eye diseases,” said Dr. Kalicinsky. “I have seen severe vision loss in individuals from Type 2 Diabetes who did not even know they were diabetic.” It’s not just adults who are advised to have their k continued on next page

Start check-ups early in life — eyes checked – Dr. Kalicinsky says infants as young as six months should have an exam. “Eighty per cent of a child’s learning is based on vision, excellent sight and eye health is crucial for their development.” Looking back, Molly Keenan regrets not taking her son Cody, 13, for regular eye exams during his younger years. The Langley mother-of-two dismissed her teen’s mishaps out on the baseball diamond and soccer field as just ‘’plain old clumsiness’’– what she didn’t realize until it was too late was that Cody was suffering from vision problems that were affecting his ability to play sports. “I wear glasses but I didn’t need them until high school and my husband doesn’t wear them either – we just never thought to get his eyes checked,” she said. “I figured he was just uncoordinated like me.” When Keenan decided to take the whole family to see the optometrist for an exam, the optometrist discovered his problem playing sports were tied to having a weak eye. “If we had gotten his eyes checked earlier he’d
probably still be playing sports today,” said Keenan, who urges parents to avoid making the same mistake. “Cody could still play now, but he has lost that confidence because the rest of his peers have moved on and have developed more advanced skills. Don’t wait like we did until it’s too late!” EARS Like your vision, hearing is another cornerstone of good health that must be protected, according to Kim Gallick, the owner of Ears Hearing Clinic Langley. The registered hearing instrument practitioner says that everyone regardless of age should have their ears checked to weed out any hearing issues or other health concerns. “Quite often it can be something as simple as a build up of ear wax – other times it’s something more serious such as a hearing loss,” she said. During a routine audiological evaluation (hearing test), Gallick starts off by looking in the outer ears for any abnormalities, wax build up or any other tube of obstruction in the ear

canal. This is preceded by a test called a Tympanogram, which checks the eardrum to make sure it is functioning properly. “A Tympanogram can check for holes that may exist on the eardrum and can also check for things obstructing the movement of the ear drum such as ear wax which can sometimes cause a temporary hearing loss.” Upon completion of the hearing test, Gallick is able to determine if the hearing loss is a medically induced loss (such as an infection/ear wax) or if the hearing loss is a nerve induced loss, which is a permanent hearing loss. “If the hearing loss happens to be one of a medical nature, we would then encourage the client to see their family physician to seek a referral for an ear specialist.” Oftentimes people joke about having a hearing loss, but in reality it can be a debilitating condition, says Gallick. Many of the people she sees on a day-to-day basis tell her that their hearing loss has caused them to become distant with loved ones. “They find themselves withdrawing from certain situations because their hearing loss does not
allow them to follow what people are saying.” To avoid falling into the latter category, Gallick encourages anyone who has yet to have their hearing checked to book an appointment. “Life is too short to withdraw yourself from family, fun and social environments –at any age,” she said. “I have clients in their 80s and 90s who are still very socially active.” TEETH Your mouth is another gateway to good overall health – that’s if you take proper care of it. While it’s easy to neglect oral hygiene, not taking care of those pearly whites can cause a lot of problems down the road such as gum disease, periodontal and cavities leading to deterioration of teeth. “These problems can cause systemic issues such as heart disease, says Dr. Sanjit Kooner of the Murrayville Dental Clinic., who has been able to detect both diabetes and heart disease as a result of examining the mouths of his patients. “A number of patients who have poor oral health, cavities and gum problems were also k continued on next page

diabetic and have had a history of heart disease. Other areas of concern that dentists are able to check for during an oral examination are: - Oral cancer of the tongue and oral mucosa mainly caused by tobacco and smoking; - Wear on the teeth, which can signify a habit of grinding or clenching – a habit of stress - Erosion of teeth, which can signify problems with acid reflex or an eating disorder; - Bacteria associated with cavities may also be involved in heart attacks, strokes and diabetes. To ensure optimal oral health, Dr. Kooner advises patients to visit the dentist regularly and have their teeth cleaned and checked to ensure no problems are present. “Regular visits to the dentist are important for oral health as well as routine home care such as brushing and flossing. A well balanced diet will also help maintain good oral health.” Without your vision, hearing or ability to enjoy food, quality of life is drastically compromised. In addition to an annual checkup with your doctor, pencil in a visit to the optometrist, dentist and hearing clinic. Aside from making sure everything is in working order, the doctor or specialist from all three fields may be able to shed some insight on any health problems that may have until now gone undetected.

or anyone hard of hearing, the world can be a lonely place. In addition to feeling out of the loop amongst family and friends, untreated hearing loss can leave one feeling depressed and disconnected from their surroundings. At Ears Hearing Langley, Kim Galick and her team provide exceptional hearing health care on a professional, yet personal basis to every patient who walks through the door. Even family members who are affected by their loved one's hearing loss benefit from this small clinic with a big heart. "I take great pride with the service that I provide to my patients hearing health care needs and to their family members," said Galick, who has been a registered hearing instrument specialist with the College of Speech and Hearing Professionals of B.C. for the past 18 years. "Many people who know me and are colleagues of mine have heard me say a thousand times, 'I would never provide a product to a client that I wouldn't feel comfortable providing to my own parents or grandparents.'' Galick opened her business – a full-service audiology clinic providing free hearing tests, hearing aids and hearing protection – on the corner of Langley's historic Salt Lane and 56 Ave. last April. "I am blessed to be the owner of Ears Hearing Langley," she said of the independent and locally owned hearing clinic. "Because we are independently owned, when you come to Ears Hearing Langley, you will be given an honest answer of which hearing aid/which manufactures would be best suited for your needs. I feel that customer service is a thing of the past in many industries, including the hearing healthcare industry. My intention is to bring that back – at least at my clinic!" Any adult who is concerned about their hearing should be tested, according to Galick, who notes that tests are always complimentary at her clinic. "Depending on the outcome of the results – if person's hearing is normal or possibly borderline normal, we recommend bi-annual re-testing. If the test results show that there is hearing loss of some degree, we will discuss the concerns the client has about their hearing, and if a hearing aid is suitable, we will discuss all options available." When it comes to hearing aids, there is no one-size-fits-all, Galick explains. "All hearing aids are based on a prescription – very similar to eye glasses – so when a hearing aid is recommended, we take several things into consideration such as lifestyle, dexterity requirements and budget. And for anyone who has difficulty getting to appointments, Ears Hearing Langley is more than happy to arrange transportation to their clinic.
"It's very difficult for some of our clients to make it into the office," noted Galick. "Should someone fall into this category then we'll either arrange a 'Home Visit' appointment or we can provide transportation to come and pick up the client for their appointment and then drive them back home." For more information about Ears Hearing Langley or to book an appointment for a complimentary hearing test, call 604-427-2828.

When it comes to sugar, it can be difficult to deny that sweet tooth. In fact, the average person consumes around 24 kilograms each year – from baking to processed foods as well as that lump or two in our coffee, it’s a staple ingredient that’s difficult to avoid. While sugar certainly makes life sweeter, it can also have a negative impact on one’s health. Obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, macular degeneration and tooth decay have all been linked to consumption of the popular staple substance that lurks in your pantry. For those who are trying to cut back on their sugar intake – whether it be to lose weight, or because of a health aversion– there are various alternatives both natural and manufactured on the market today. But with all of the choices available at the supermarket and health food store, how do you determine which is the best choice for you and your family? k continued on next page

Natural or artificial sweeteners – how to choose
Jessica Young, a registered dietician from Langley advises her clients to stick with sugar derived from nature for optimum nutrition. “Naturally occurring sugars that are found in fresh foods such as fruits and dairy products are best because with them, you are getting other valuable nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fibre (in fruit) and protein (in dairy),” she said. Many believe they are making the healthy choice by optioning for yellow sugar or brown in replacement of white, however, all three are equivalent, notes Young. “Yellow and brown sugar are made by boiling refinery cane syrup until brown sugar crystals form by blending white sugar with molasses,” she said. “The amount of molasses is insignificant in the nutritional profile of the sugar when compared to white sugar.” The first artificial sweetener was marketed in the early 1900s’ – today there are several varieties to choose from. Although you often get less calories by using artificial sweeteners, Young advices consum-
ers to use sparingly. “Really, you are only tricking you brain that you have had something sweet and are not reducing your taste buds craving for sweet things,” she said, also noting that artificial sweeteners do have a role as an alternative for individuals with diabetes and glucose intolerance to reduce the impact of sweetened foods on blood sugar levels.” Studies have also show that sugar activates an area of the brain associated with reward, while artificial sweeteners do not, notes Young who also questions its use. “Is that artificially sweetened food truly satisfying your craving?” Some important facts about artificial sweeteners to consider: • Sugar contains 48 calories per tablespoon; • Coconut sugar is equal in calories to sugar yet has a lower glycemic index; • Agave contains 60 calories/tablespoon yet is 1.5 times sweeter than sugar so you
should be able to use less of it. Agave is also high in fructose, which has a low glycemic index but is linked to diabetes, obesity, heart disease and metabolic syndrome; • Stevia contains no sugar and is 10-15 times sweeter than sugar so use sparingly; • Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and contains around 32 calories/tablespoon and has a lower gylcemic index. As with any sugar alcohol, too much can cause intestinal upset (gas, bloating, diarrhea). With perks and pitfalls of both natural and artificial sweeteners, how do you choose? Young advises her clients to take a good look at what they typically eat in a day to help make their decision. “Do you eat mostly fresh, whole foods? Are your meals and snacks filled with vegetables, fruits, dairy, meats, fish, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds and whole grains? If the answer is no, then you may be filling up on food low in nu-
Dental Back-to-School Checklist
After a beautiful summer in the Fraser Valley, it is that time again to get the family organized for the school year. As good parents, we are concerned with the health, happiness, and success of our children. From a dental perspective we are all aware of the importance of planning regular check-ups to identify and treat the common diseases of the teeth and gums. A nasty infection, or toothache, runs the risk of missing that important math test, field trip, or (yikes!) the school dance where they are planning to approach that cute boy or girl. The thing that most parents (and even some doctors) don’t understand is the role that growth and development of the jaws can play in proper mental and emotional function. This is especially true when it comes to the reciprocal relationship between dental development and the upper airway. A restricted airway, as in allergies for example, can result in oral (mouth) breathing which, in turn, results in collapsed dental arches. Collapsed dental arches reduce the amount of space for the tongue so that it sits backward and, in turn, further restricts the airway and promotes even more mouth breathing. Drs. H. Torre and J.A. Alarcon stated in their Sept. 2012 paper that “Children who breathe orally generally have an increased frequency of sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, sleep-related breathing disorders, restlessness, excessive daytime sleepiness, lack of attention, behavioral and neurocognitive abnormalities, and DECREASED SCHOOL PERFORMANCE.” They also concluded that orthodontic treatment to expand the dental arches resulted in SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED SCHOOL PERFORMANCE. Follow this checklist to help your child have a great school year: - Book a check-up and cleaning with your dentist. - Refocus on good oral hygiene habits. Kids 8 y.o. and under need you to help them out! - In the lunch box avoid sweet and starchy snacks. - Observe your child for mouth breathing and snoring. - Have the teeth checked for signs of collapse. - Get the dental arches expanded and WATCH YOUR CHILD EXCEL!!

agave tritional quality,” she said.” Since there are no long-term benefits from consuming artificial sweeteners, Young says to focus on optimizing your nutrition through whole foods that provide adequate fibre and protein. “This way you can feel more satisfied and reduce your cravings for sweets. If you can’t fight that craving, enjoy something sweet on occasion using real sugar or an alternative.”

hat was fun. Let’s do it again!” said young prodigy pianist Kevin Chen last year after his first ever performance with an orchestra. Now, at only eight years old, Kevin is returning to play with the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra (AYO) — but this time, he’s bringing his own symphonic compositions. Langley audiences will get another chance to hear Kevin play, when he returns to the stage at Langley Community Music School on Sunday, Oct. 6, nearly a year after his first performance in Rose Gellert Hall. For someone who’s been around for less than a decade, Kevin already has an impressive number of accomplishments under his belt. “After getting his ARCT (Association of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto) diploma in June and placing first in the Canadian Music Competition in Montreal this summer, Kevin decided to write a couple of symphonies,” said AYO director, Calvin Dyck. “He was inspired by the orchestra last year, so this year he is coming back for the AYO to play his first ever symphony — in a world premiere.”
This shy, very childlike and innocent young boy is a highly unusual talent, and because he is so very small, when he is at the piano he requires a box with a system of levers that are his equivalent of pedals. “Kevin is akin to Mozart with his incredible capacity for absorbing and
Eight-year-old piano prodigy Kevin Chen has been compared to Mozart, because of his capacity for absorbing and memorizing music in a very short time. memorizing music in a very short period of time,” said Dyck. “He hears the music in his head when he looks at a score and while he is composing. He has a mature musical sensitivity that you usually only see in a seasoned artist; and he handles technical and musical intricacies with amazing ease.”
While his solo piano writing is like that of a Chopin nocturne, Kevin’s symphonies are in the style of Mozart. “They are very melodic and immediate,” says Dyck. “He uses similar orchestrations to Mozart. That’s where his musical love is today, but as he grows older I imagine he will become interested in other styles.”
At age five Kevin began music studies; at six he was the youngest person in Canada to take and pass the Grade 9 Royal Conservatory of Music exams; at age seven he passed his Grade 10 (with first-class honours); and now he has his ARTC diploma — and he’s only eight.
His last performance in Abbotsford went really well — so well, in fact, that he received standing ovations and audience members wanted their picture taken with him. “A film crew came out to make a documentary, and music teachers brought along their students,” said Dyck. “There’s a real fascination with his talent.”
Colleen Athparia, Kevin’s teacher, will also be performing along with Dyck. An international artist, author and RCM adjudicator, Colleen is a sought after teacher at the Mount Royal Conservatory, and considered one of Canada’s top four pianists of contemporary music.
NEW, SOMETHING OLD
“While the AYO will be playing excerpts from Kevin’s First Symphony, and accompanying him on Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, we are also doing the Overture to Rossini’s comedic opera The Barber of Seville,” Dyck said. “This is one of the most loved and best recognized works in the classical/ opera repertoire, thanks in part to its use in countless movies, commercials, and of course, a Bugs Bunny cartoon.”

Foyer art call issued The Langley Centennial Museum is once again offering its Foyer Art Program, and is inviting artists to submit photographs of recent artwork, in any medium, for consideration in the Foyer Art program. Although preference will be given to locals, the program is open to artists from across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.
Exhibition space is available in the Langley Centennial Museum, and the small space available can accommodate between three and 10 pieces of artwork. “It’s a great opportunity for artists, particularly new artists, to get some exposure in the community, but to also get some insight into the exhibiting process,” says
the museum’s curator, Kobi Christian. The museum plans to display the artists’ works in two-month time slots. Pick up an entry form, or download one from the museum’s website at langleymuseum.org. The deadline for applications is Oct. 21. Contact Christian at 604-532-3536 or email@example.com.

Steve Janzen, a teacher at R.E. Mountain Secondary, played professional basketball for seven years in Germany. Now he is running Elevate along with another Mountain teacher, Kirk Weiss. Janzen played his university basketball at Trinity Western (below).
Coaching ‘an opportunity to give back’ GARY AHUJA Times Sports
After an all-star high school career, Steve Janzen was recruited to play university basketball, but failed to crack the roster. But rather than let that hold him back, Janzen dedicated himself to getting better. “After high school, things weren’t necessarily handed to me,” he explained. “Basically, I had to work my butt off. “I was told my defence wasn’t good enough for the CIS level.” Janzen had starred at Richmond’s Hugh Boyd Secondary, earning team, city and provincial accolades for his play as a shooting guard for the Trojans. After failing to land a spot on the University of Manitoba roster, he returned to B.C. and enrolled at Langara College, playing two seasons at the college level, and found his
way to the CIS, spending three seasons with the Trinity Western Spartans. He wasn’t done with the game either, carving out a nice seven-year career playing professionally in Germany. Janzen said the ability to live in another country, travel around Europe, and learn about different cultures “was an amazing life experience.” But with his professional career now over with — Janzen retired in 2011 — he is onto the next phase of his life: a teacher and coach at R.E. Mountain Secondary. The fact he wound up in teaching is of little surprise. “I had done lot of basketball camps, AIA camps, and that got me very passionate about working with young kids,” Janzen said. “Through that, I fell in love with teaching and coaching basketball.” He also coached youth teams while in Germany. His father, Walter, is also a
degree in human kinetics from Trinity Western had earned his teaching certificate from UBC earlier in his playing career. He had gone back to school earlier in his career while rehabilitating a partial tear of his Achilles. He teaches PE and social studies, as well as coaching junior girls volleyball and junior boys basketball. Janzen has also teamed up with fellow Mountain teacher/coach Kirk Weiss, to create Elevate. Elevate offers Thursday night basketball through the fall and spring at photo courtesy of TWU Athletic Department Mountain, as well as retired teacher. camps and clinics for “I got a lot of inspiration basketball and volleyball during from him and the impact he spring and summer. had on kids,” Janzen said. “Right since Grade 3, I have Janzen, who earned his had people investing in me and
helping me out so I think now that I am done with that, it is my turn to help others,” Janzen said. “It is just an opportunity to give back to these kids, give them an opportunity to play and to have good coaching.” “I really think what I have learned playing overseas is that guys who made it, there was something about their character, something about their work ethic, something that was inside of them,” Janzen said. Janzen said the camp is based on an inside-out coaching philosophy, which focuses on the character development and building of strong core/moral values within an individual. Using sport, they hope is to teach players about commitment, work ethic and perseverance, which will set up players for success on the court, in the classroom, and ultimately, in life.

A five-goal second period sent the Aldergrove Kodiaks to a lopsided victory. The junior B hockey club broke open a 2-0 game with that big period en route to a 9-0 pounding of the Grandview Steelers on Sunday at the Burnaby Winter Club. The victory was the fourth straight for Aldergrove as they have out-scored their foes 29-6 over that span since losing their Pacific Junior Hockey League season opener. Adam Callegari led the attack with two goals and three assists, while Stephen Ryan (two goals, two assists), Kenny Prato (one goal, three assists) and Jackson
Waniek (one goal, three assists) had four-point games. Ryan Simpson, Joshua Poitras and Scott McHaffie each had one goal. The Kodiaks were lethal on the power play, converting four of their six man advantage chances. Goaltender Cole MacInnes stopped all 33 shots he faced. It was Aldergrove’s second shutout win of the week as they beat the Ridge Meadows Flames 6-0 on Sept. 18. They also defeated the Mission City Outlaws 5-2 the next night. The Kodiaks will look to make it five straight when they host the Port Moody Panthers tomorrow (Sept. 25) at the Aldergrove Arena.

While no coach likes to look ahead to their next opponent, the Langley Rams were able to work on some specific things as they ready themselves for a big showdown this weekend, and also next monthâ€™s post-season. â€œWe were able to execute a lot of the things we have been working on,â€? said Rams coach Ted Kirby. Kirby was referring to his teamâ€™s 54-7 win over the visiting Valley Huskers at McLeod Athletic Park on Saturday night. The win improved the Rams to 6-2 and they sit in a threeway tie atop the B.C. Football Conference standings alongside the V.I. (Vancouver Island) Raiders and the Okanagan Sun with two games remaining. The Rams host the Raiders this Saturday afternoon at McLeod Athletic Park.
Against the Huskers, the outcome was never in doubt as Langley held the under-manned Huskers to 56 yards of offence. The teamâ€™s lone touchdown came courtesy of a blocked punt which Dylan Boykowich scooped up and ran 22 yards for the score. The Rams defence had five interceptions with Joe Patko and Jeff Paras picking off two apiece and Nate De RappardScott with the other. Patko also returned one of his picks for a touchdown. Luke Andrews had Langleyâ€™s lone quarterback sack, while Michael Spencer had a fumble recovery. Quarterback Jahlani GilbertKnorren threw for three touchdowns and rushed for two scores. Dan English, Jordan Traversy and Spensor Farbatuk caught one touchdown pass apiece. The teamâ€™s other touchdown
came along the ground from Kyle Albertini. The running back finished with 118 yards on 13 carries. The rest of the points came off the boot of Steve Thomas, who made both of his field goals and was a perfect six-forsix on convert attempts. Kirby credited the Valley team for their fight during the game, especially considering how short of player they were. â€œTo be honest, I might be more impressed with the Huskersâ€™ effort than our own,â€? he said. â€œThose guys showed a lot of heart. They stood up and battled.â€? As for the upcoming against the Raiders, the Rams will look to avenge a 41-27 loss. â€œWe have to play smart football,â€? Kirby said about limiting penalties. â€œWe canâ€™t get into a shootout with them. We want to keep their offence off the field.â€?
