Car crashes into home trying to flee police

One woman is in police custody following a short vehicle pursuit, then a foot pursuit on Yale Road near Woodbine Street in Chilliwack. At around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, RCMP tried to pull over a vehicle with two people in it for dangerous driving. The driver of the white Mitsubishi did not pull over, and led RCMP on a short vehicle pursuit along Yale Road. The vehicle then crashed into a house at the corner of Yale Road and Woodbine Street, and at least one of the suspects (a woman) inside the car got out and fled the scene on foot. RCMP Police Dog Services were called to help. They were able to track the woman who was found in a nearby house on Clayton Avenue.

Conviction in Planje murder Agassiz couple arrested at U.S. border

A 44-year-old Chilliwack man was convicted of manslaughter Friday in the death of 64-year-old Robert Jan Planje nearly three years ago. Steven Kenneth Frederickson had been charged with second degree murder. However, after a lengthy trial, Frederickson was convicted of manslaughter, meaning the court did not find an intent to kill. Planje went missing on the morning of Dec. 13, 2010 when Chilliwack RCMP were called to his home in the Rainbow Trailer park to check on his well being. When police attended they found no one at the residence, however there were signs of “a suspicious activity.” The residence was secured and a search for Planje

began. His body was found two weeks later on an isolated road near Hope. In January, Frederickson was charged with murder. During the trial, Frederickson confirmed there had been a fight, but insisted he was defending himself. RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said police were pleased with the conviction. “For the investigators at IHIT, the sense of pride and accomplishment never dissipates when an accused is found guilty.   As we approach the three year anniversary, this accomplishment is a very successful outcome,” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound.

Jessica Peters Black Press An Agassiz couple is facing five years in prison in the U.S. after an alleged drug run went wrong. Jonna and Robert Booth’s troubles began when they attempted to cross the border into Northgate, North Dakota on Monday afternoon. They were traveling in a 1999 Coach Camper, and were chosen for a secondary inspection. An affidavit filed with the United States District Court states that the husband and wife both claimed they were not carrying more than $10,000 USD. An inspection of the vehicle revealed that $73,080 was stowed away in a panel of the camper. The Booths were immediately separat-

ed and detained. While they both initially claimed to officers that the money was won gambling, Mrs. Booth is said to have changed her story when officers told her they found her journal, and knew that the money was actually from the sale of marijuana. Booth then told officers the couple had endured financial hardship, and in January this year they had began running drugs to Manitoba about once a month. She could not say how much marijuana had been transported, and how much they had made. They had crossed into the U.S. to avoid traveling through the Rockies, after learning of poor weather in that area. They had just finished transporting an unknown amount of marijuana, stowed

under their front seats as they traveled across Canada, to a house in Winnipeg. Initially, the couple had dropped two hockey bags full of marijuana in a ditch where it was to be picked up. When they couldn’t get a hold of the person who was supposed to pick up, they arranged to drop it off at the Winnipeg home. Agassiz RCMP said the couple were not known to them prior to hearing about the case in the news this week. The Booths are not facing drug charges, but are facing charges of smuggling bulk cash into and out of the United States. At a hearing on Tuesday, Robert Booth told the judge they had no plans to sneak money into the United States, but were just trying to get home.

FVRD director ordered to return funds to district Alina Konevski Black Press Directors at the Fraser Valley Regional District who failed to support some expenses during a recent audit must reimburse the district, the board of directors decided at the last meeting. This ruling will concern at least Area B director Dennis Adamson. Adamson underwent an audit earlier this year of his 2011 and 2012 expenses after failing to provide supporting documents for claims of

$28,545 incurred in 2011. After the completion of the audit in July 2013, Adamson still had expenses of $1,545 that could not be explained. The regional district paid out all expenses to Adamson during the year they were incurred. At the FVRD board meeting on Sept. 25, Abbotsford municipal director John Smith moved that costs that couldn’t be justified through the audit be reimbursed back to FVRD. “We have to be totally transpar-

ent. We have to be held up to scrutiny, public scrutiny, and it may not be a huge amount to the size of the budget of the FVRD, but it’s the principle of the thing,” said Smith. Smith referred to the ongoing investigation of senator Pamela Wallin’s expenses. Wallin has already paid back over $140,000 to the government. “The reality is, they paid it back anyway. Maybe under protest, but they paid it back. And I think that should be done,” said Smith. The final amount to be returned

to FVRD is still to be determined, as is the final list of directors concerned. Area C Director Wendy Bales was the other elected official who faced a stringent audit of 2011 and 2012 expenses after she didn’t provide supporting documents for 2011 expenses of $14,032 in due time. Bales passed the audit with no leftover balance. FVRD staff are currently determining the final amount to be returned, are discussing with affected directors, and will report back to the board in a future meeting.

Taking a stand against racism Katie Bartel The Progress Tara Peters is standing up against racism in hopes her children won’t have to. While Peters, herself, has never had racism pointedly directed at her, hearing it still cuts her to the core. After 32 years, the last straw came last week. The young mom was standing in a grocery line with her 20-month-old daughter Layla. She was exhausted, as moms of toddlers tend to be, and was doing everything she could to hold her daughter at bay while they waited to pay for their groceries. A grandmotherly woman standing in front of Peters turned and started cooing at Layla, playing peak-a-boo with her, asking questions, anything to help distract the curious toddler from pulling chocolate bars off the shelves. One aisle over, another mom of First Nations descent stood with her child, the same age and seeming curiosity as Layla. Peters, a knowing smile on her face, looked up at the woman still playing with her daughter, about to laugh that she wasn’t the only one. Instead, she faced a cold stare. The friendly grandmother was gone. “They just shouldn’t f***ing breed,” she hissed. The man in front of the woman joined in, criticizing the aboriginal community for being lazy, having children they can’t afford or take care of, relying on their minority status. Peters was stunned silent. Her heart raced. She felt sweat glistening her skin. Peters, herself, is of First Nations descent, a member of the Chawathil band in Hope. She grew up on the reserve, she has a status card, her

Directors were feeling the pressure of a public spotlight on spending by elected officials at the Sept. 25 meeting. “The public perception nationwide - there’s a lot of skepticism, cynicism about politicians in general…I think it behooves us to really be vigilant and even more careful about it,” said Abbotsford municipal director Dave Loewen. A heated discussion ignited about cost of travel. Directors are reimbursed for Continued: FVRD/ p6

mom, Rhoda Peters, chief of the band, is a residential school survivor. But the difference between Peters and the other mom is that Peters’ skin doesn’t show her heritage. “Because of my caucasian appearance, because I am light skinned with auburn hair and hazel eyes, I was included in their little club,” she said. “It was sickening. What is going on in your head to think that that is okay to say?” For days after, Peters replayed the experience in her head over and over. She wished she had said something, had gone over and assisted the other mom, had stood up against the racist comments being thrown about so brazenly instead of averting her eyes to her daughter, her shoes, the rack of magazines, anywhere but at them. For years she’s been witness to those comments and

has almost always let them slide. No more. “I’m sick of distancing myself from friends because of their racist comments and attitudes; I’m sick of being told that everyone should just get over it because what happened to aboriginal people in Canada was something that happened a long time ago,” she said, noting the last residential school closed in 1984, just four years after she was born. “Most of all, I’m sick of people looking at my loved ones and seeing nothing but dysfunction and then condemning them for their mental health issues when the very cause of those issues is that air of condemnation that allowed the Indian Act to come to pass.” Racist remarks don’t show the love, support, and care of the aboriginal community, she said. “Despite everything that

has happened, despite the every day challenges, and heartache, and discrimination, we still have pride in our family, our people, our community, and our land,” she said. “I have experienced other cultures and other peoples, but I have yet to come across anyone who is so free with laughter, affection and love as my family. And by family, I mean my community and nation – that’s what family means at our table.” It’s time Chilliwack stop burying its head in the sand, said Peters. “People pretend this sort of stuff isn’t happening in our community, but it is,” she said. “One day soon, I will have to find a way to explain these things to my children. I will have to prepare them for that angry woman in the grocery store. I shouldn’t have to. It’s stupid that I have to – haven’t we grown up yet?” kbartel@theprogress.com

It’s been “kind of crazy” since Susi Vander Wyk of Chilliwack was named Walmart Canada’s Mom of the Year. The top prize ultimately means “hope” for the families of SMA Canada, she says. Vander Wyk didn’t even have an acceptance speech ready when they announced the name of her charity as 2013 grand prize winner of $100,000. It was a shock. “All the blood drained from my body,” Vander Wyk says in a phone interview. “Somehow I stood up, hugged each of my children, my husband and my niece and got up there. ‘They handed me flowers and trophy and I gave a speech that I had just made up on the spot.” She literally had nothing written out should she win. “They had told each of us beforehand to plan an acceptance speech in case we won, but I didn’t do it,” she remembers. The gala saw kind words delivered by people like the Walmart Canada CEO. “We are honoured to announce Susi Vander Wyk as Walmart Canada’s 2013 Mom of the Year, and we celebrate her and every mom here tonight for their outstanding job of being a mom,” announced Walmart Canada president and CEO Shelley Broaders. Vander Wyk, who has taken the humble approach all along, thought for sure the stiff competition meant she didn’t have a chance of winning. That’s why she didn’t bother to prepare a speech. “All this time it could have been any of us,” she says. “There were so many amazing, inspiring women among the finalists.” A lot of the experience was a little surreal for the Chilliwack mom. She came out of the elevator before the Sunday gala and ran across a series of nine-foot high poster boards of all the finalists. It made for a mild shock as she ran into her own largr-thanlife photo. The busy mom was treated to a makeover and experienced a magazine photo shoot in the wake of the gala Sunday night where she also got to stroll down a red carpet. There was a flurry of fuss with a makeup artist, nail specialist and hair stylist. “The style for the photo shoot was fine. Just Continued: HOPE/ p17

babies under three, with everything from diapers, powders and pablum, to vitamins and fresh fruit. The new headquarters are at Spadina Avenue and Main Street, across the street from the Chilliwack Museum. “We’re also launching a fundraising campaign to introduce ourselves to those who may not yet be aware of the work we’re doing,” said Kessler. “It’s to let our friends and supporters know that we’re hop-

ing to grow beyond Chilliwack and the surrounding area, to other parts of the province.” The Society also now has its own Board of Directors. The Board consists of seven people, all passionate about supporting the most vulnerable children in our Community: Denny Friesen, Ron Schilling, Tracey Collisson, Denise Halloran, Wendy Giesbrecht, Audrey Harris and Krista Esau. The Society has been given the go-ahead to expand province-wide.

It’s your money... and your peace of mind.

“Now all we need is the moral and financial support of our neighbours to do it, so we can benefit children in need throughout British Columbia. No child on our beautiful province should go without because of the family’s financial struggles.” The campaign has already kicked off with the Candles for a Cause weekend, which took place last month at the Chilliwack Mall. With the Mall administration’s generous support, Meadow Rose was able to further establish its presence in the community and raise muchneeded funds. “We were genuinely touched by the support of the people we met and spoke with over the course of the week-

end,” said Kessler. “I’m always amazed at the generosity of this community.” Upcoming fundraisers include a hot dog sale at Pricesmart on Oct. 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and a nickel drive on Nov. 16. There will be collection points, including Chilliwack Mall, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “We hope to see many of you at our office opening to celebrate the work of Meadow Rose and its evolution as a charitable organization and to find out more about us.” Meadow Rose Society Open House is Thursday, October 17, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at #2-45789 Spadina Avenue.

The discretionar y amount does not vary according to the size of the electoral district, a challenge for some directors. The board of directors resolved to adopt a new travel expense policy that laid out guidelines of distances between the regional office and electoral district offices, reaffirmed that supporting documents are needed for all claims, approved an electronic tracking sheet for mileage, and abolished the top-up credit of $5,000 for large areas. Chair Sharon Gaetz was pleased with the results. “It feels like today, the accountabilities are tightening,� she said.

Lead foots and left-lane campers, the province wants to hear from you. The B.C. government is reviewing speed limits for long stretches of highway, and Transportation Minister Todd Stone wants your feedback on how fast is fast enough. The review is not supposed to be about increasing speed limits, but ensuring the province has the correct speed limits in place. Stone, who sees the Coquihalla as a likely candidate for a speedlimit adjustment, says the goal is to ensure those who travel B.C.’s rural highways are able to do so as safely and efficiently as possible. Sounds good. And no doubt, those 110 km/hr signs along the Coquihalla are already being interpreted by many a driver as 120 km/hr. In fact, it’s a safe bet that whatever the decided upon speed limit is, drivers will round up by 10. The big question mark here is those behind the wheel. Cars may be better constructed, but drivers – not necessarily so. Case in point, according to ICBC, distracted driving – typically fiddling with gadgets while driving – is the cause of about onequarter of all traffic fatalities in the province. Do you want people texting while doing 130 kh/hr into the Great Bear Snowshed? Speaking of cell phones, travel the Coquihalla in winter nd you’re certain to see SUVs ditched on the side of the road, their drivers out in the snow on the phone, presumably trying to contact roadside assistance. One of the hazards of not driving to conditions. Which leads us to hope that if speed limits are increased, highway traffic enforcement resources follow suit. ~ Black Press

L OCALLY G LOBAL

Young girl’s inspirational fight against oppression It was the greatest of ironies when the brutal Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head a year ago in an effort to silence her. She was just 14 years old at the time. Malala was already a high profile target. In 2009 she began writing a blog about life under Taliban Islamist rule and girls being denied an education. The blog was written anonymously but, still, she became well known for speaking out after the Pakistan army pushed the Taliban out of the mountainous Swat Valley where she lived. On that fateful day when a bullet sliced through the left side of Malala’s head and lodged in her shoulder it not only failed to silence her but it triggered an international outrage that has focused the light on the plight of

girls everywhere who are denied an education. Now, 16-year-old Malala is a dedicated human rights activist on a mission to see every child have the right to go to school. But who is this feisty teenager with wisdom and courage beyond her years who refused to cover Margaret her face in Islam EVANS tradition and hid her books in her shawl as she went to school with her friends? Malala was born in the town of Mingora in July 1997 into a Sunni Muslim family of Pashtun heritage. Even her name “Malala” had cultural significance as it is the name of a famous Pashtun

warrior woman. Mingora is an ancient town in the beautiful Swat Valley hugging the Hindu Kush range. There’s no doubt Malala was guided and influenced by her activist father Ziauddin Yousafzai, himself a school owner and poet. He was largely responsible for her education. When she was 11, he took her to Peshawar to speak at the local press club where she provided some hefty tween pushback demanding to know of the Taliban what right they had to take away her own basic right to an education. Those were fighting words coming from a girl in a public place. But she didn’t stop there. With her father’s encouragement, she began her blog in 2009 for the BBC Urdu service, writing under the pseudonym Gul Makai. This

was at a time when the Taliban had blown up 100 girls’ schools and threats appeared on her Facebook page. Talk about gutsy. It wasn’t long before her identity became known when she began appearing on TV interviews in Pakistan and articles were being written about her. A career in politics was on her horizon and in 2012 she was already planning to organize the Malala Education Foundation. But by then she had become high priority for assassination by Taliban extremists. It was 9 October 2012. Malala was riding home from school with friends in a bus. A masked gunman leapt on board, demanded her identity. Then he shot her and injured her two friends. The bullet almost killed her. As her brain swelled, a portion of her skull was removed. She would

need reconstructive surgery and months of care. Within six days of being shot, she was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, U.K. where she made a remarkable recovery, picked up the reins of her mission and on 12 July 2013, her 16th birthday, addressed the United Nations calling for children worldwide to have access to education. Multiple awards have studded her young life, the latest being the prestigious Sakharov Prize for free speech awarded last week by the European Parliament. Malala, a typical teen fan of Justin Bieber and the Twilight books, is driven by her mission for change for the 65 million girls who didn’t go to school today. What an incredible inspiration she is.

CO2 a tiny fraction of atmosphere Re: Science loses ground to superstition (B.C. Views, Oct. 3). Tom Fletcher is, in my view, one of BC’s most under-appreciated commentators.  This column sums up one of our world’s strangest phenomena – superstition increases in lockstep with the increase in human knowledge. Fletcher focuses on our endless climate-change conflict, but you can add debates such as ‘smart meters causing cancer,’ ‘vaccines causing autism,’ ‘genetic engineering bad/organic good’ and on and on. Toss

in the anti-coal and anti-pipeline crowd, and you have a mass of ignorance that boggles the mind.  Never have so many known so little about basic mathematics, physics, chemistry, history and so forth. To illustrate my point, consider that the Earth’s atmosphere is 77 per cent nitrogen and 21 per cent oxygen. That leaves two per cent for all the trace gases including carbon dioxide – currently .04 of one per cent. How can a reasonable person argue that carbon dioxide is the primary driver of climate change?

Fletcher also notes the genetic engineering (GE) debate at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. GE offers some of the best solutions to hunger afflicting much of the Earth’s human population. In spite of the potential benefits, nearly half of our municipal leaders buy into the anti-GE hysteria.  If you listened to Vancouver city council, we should all be living in yurts and scratching, along with our chickens, a living from backyard organic gardens.  Mind boggling! Francis Patrick Jordan

NDP need some dynamic leadership Reading Jennifer Woodruff’s letter of Oct. 10 (NDP only getting stronger), has only made it clearer why the NDP blew a 20 point lead and lost the election.   Her attitude reflects a great majority of NDP supporters, And unfortunately, a lot of NDP supporters have a short memory

This failure on their part to draw up a campaign built on an attitude of experience and of past reconciliation was their imminent failure.  That, and a leader who was so outclassed, that he was embarrassing even to his own party. British Columbians, care most about their

way of life, employment, pension plans, and leaders who know how to lead.   Adrian Dix failed miserably.   Why the NDP waited for third and long to announce there pipeline miscue, when they should have punted, and held the Liberals deep in their own end on the ethics scandal, just shows how

inept they are. Obviously, they couldn’t see an opportunity even if it bit them in the rear.   Who wants a blind person to lead them across the street.   What the NDP needs to lead them into the future is a leader that’s dynamic.   Not seeing that, anytime soon. Art Green

Thinking Differently Pays Off

Chilliwack General Hospital earns praise It seems to me there has been a lot of bad press about our hospital services. I therefore would like to say something positive about my recent visit to the Chilliwack hospital. What a difference four years and a much-needed upgrade can make. Four years ago I was admitted to the emergency with serious pneumonia. The whole experience was a nightmare. The emergency room was overcrowded and noisy, the ward I ended up on was dirty.   The

only positive was the doctors and nurses in Emergency that saved my life. That is why at the time I did not wish to make a complaint. Four years on and I am back in emergency with pneumonia, Wow! What a difference. The nursing staff at the triage were kind and professional. The emergency room operated (metaphorically speaking),like clock work. I had x-rays, blood tests, heart monitors and IV attached in what seemed to be the blink of an eye. The nursing staff were excellent and appeared to be jovial and

happy at their work. I was later the same day transferred to a ward and it was clean, unlike four years before. The nurses again were most professional and very friendly as was everyone I came into contact with. It is easy to criticize when things go wrong as they do but it is important to give praise when praise is due. Therefore I would like to thank all who work at the Chilliwack general hospital for making my short stay as pleasant as such a stay could be. Steve Cossins

Reader suspicious of door-to-door person Today (Oct 3) a man came to our door and said he represented Fortis Gas.   he asked if I read the inserts that come with the Fortis bill.   I said no and he started to ask more questions. When the questions seemed to

be something Fortis would already know I asked again who he represented.   He then pulled out the badge and while it had Fortis B.C. printed on it there was very small print on the bottom.   When I asked who authorised

him, he said it was the company that maintained the pipelines.   I told him I was not comfortable with his questions and closed the door.  Fortunately I have a large dog that was by my side all the time and I only opened

the door a crack. I notified police and called Fortis.   They assured me they do not sent people door to door and they are the ones who maintain the pipelines. Kitty Chisholm

From right, Dan Oostenbrink, Bill Derover, Helen Oostenbrink and Teresa Derover are the owners of Local Harvest Market. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Bringing home the harvest in Chilliwack Katie Bartel The Progress Dan Oostenbrink and Bill de Rover want to reconnect Chilliwack with its food. And they’ve got just the land to do it with. The owners of the Local Harvest Market on Lickman Road have 30 acres of land, 15 of which are currently dedicated to fruit, herb, and vegetable crops, which they then sell in the retail shop at the front of the property. Everything grown is no spray, no chemical fertilizers, picked fresh every day. “We grow on site, we sell on site,” said Oostenbrink, a former school principal at Mt. Cheam Christian school. Oostenbrink and de Rover, along with their wives Helen and Teresa respectively, opened

Local Harvest Market last month and aside from home gardens and a love of local, fresh food, none have a farming background. But they saw a gap in the Chilliwack community needing to be filled: Food knowledge. “We want to show people where their food is coming from,” said Oostenbrink. “Every customer that comes here will know everything about the food they’re buying, how it’s grown, the varieties available, and the benefits of that particular food – we want to connect people with their food.” However, they know they face an uphill battle. For decades, the shopping mentality of most consumers has been based on price. When cucumbers are sold for 10 cents cheaper at the supermarket, it’s

expected they be sold for the same everywhere else, regardless of the quality, freshness, time or effort it took to produce. “It’s going to take a lot of reeducating of our consumers,” said Oostenbrink. Educational workshops are being held on site; farm tours are encouraged; and the market is going to be partnering with schools to get the younger generation on board in hopes their excitement for fresh, locally grown food will filter down to their parents. “We want to educate the consumer on things that farms like us can do,” said Oostenbrink. While supermarkets bring most of their fruits and vegetables in from around the world, Local Harvest Market is getting theirs from not even 20 steps away. It’s never been frozen. It’s

picked fresh every day. It’s been handled by just one set of hands. The nutritional value, compared to that coming in from the United States, South America or elsewhere, is through the roof. “We can eat good, quality, ultra fresh, local food year round,” said Oostenbrink. The market will sell product based on seasonal selections. At any given time of the year you could find squashes, greens, peppers, root vegetables, raspberries, or other fare, like Japanese greens or kabocha squash, that’s not so commonly recognized. And if something isn’t stacked on the shelves, it might still be found in the fields. That’s what happened to one customer recently who was disappointed the market’s shelves were clear of kale. When

Oostenbrink heard that, he ran out to the fields and brought back an armful of freshly picked kale. “She had goosebumps with how fresh it was,” he said. “That’s what we can do.” de Rover is sure all it will take is one bite to be hooked. “I’m constantly eating all day,” he said, chomping down on a radish he had just pulled from the soil and wiped clean with a polish on his jeans. “It’s like a big home garden.” Because this year was the market’s inaugural year, it will only be opened as long as there is product available. But when they reopen next spring, there will be a full 30 acres grown and will be open year round.

Experience Downtown... Sweet Treat Bakery: comfort food from the heart If settling into Sweet Treat Bakery feels like sitting down at the kitchen table, it’s no surprise. Jackie Grosart has been making people feel at home with her baking for decades. But now, she has a restaurant to call her own. Jackie took over ownership of Sweet Treat in August, bringing with her the fresh-baked goodness that has kept customers coming back time and again. Jackie is no stranger to

That self-determination was matched by a curiosity that has only expanded and enhanced her culinary skills. She eventually made

There’s an assortment of barbecue dishes, served with rice and a delectable dipping sauce. Feeling creative?

Just in time for the cool months ahead, a new restaurant has opened in downtown Chilliwack that promises the warmth and goodness of an Asian favourite. Pho-Chilli opened several weeks ago. And as the name suggests, it specialize in the Vietnamese-style soup, called “pho.” The secret to a good pho, is the broth. Made from scratch, its rich complexity of flavours forms the foundation of a hearty meal. It’s origins are vague, but it’s believed pho was a popular street food, sold by merchants who kept their soups warm over smoldering fires. Whatever the origin, they have gained widespread popularity in North American and in particular the Lower Mainland. The broth might be the most important part of the dish, but it isn’t the only part. To that rich and flavourful base are added noodles, meats, vegetables, fresh herbs and condiments. Mix and match the ingredients to create a unique and deeply satisfying meal that keeps fans coming back for more. Or, choose one of specialty soups, or one of the hot and sour selections, But the pho is not the only item PhoChilli customers are coming in for. The restaurant also serves the

We’re not talking about pulling out the cell phone for a pic here,” she laughs. “It was like, how uncomfortable can you make a country girl?” she says. She got to tell the story of her charity, the families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Canada on the Marilyn Dennis show. It’s the second year of the contest. “We are thrilled to bring the Mom of the Year Award back for a second year,”  said  Broader. “Once again, it has been an inspiring journey to review all the amazing stories of admirable women from across this nation.” The group has become a lifeline for families of children with SMA, who often feel

like their lives are shattered post-diagnosis of this debilitating disease, and suddenly alienated from everyone else. Susi and her husband Bruce Vancer Wyk have three kids: Dexter, Holli and Amy. When Holli was just two she was diagnosed with SMA Type 2, or SMA. After a year of struggling, Susi started a support group for parents called EPIC, for families dealing with a range of disabilities. They held charity dinners and dances to raise funds, and they run a summer camp for the past 13 years, inviting families who have children with SMA from across the globe to join them. During her speech, Vander Wyk thanked Walmart and the judges and talked about what working with the families of SMA Canada meant to her, and how the prize money will

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Determined golfer finds a way to play Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Four men tee off on the first hole of Chilliwack’s Kinkora Golf Course on a crisp Tuesday afternoon. Each of them sends their tee shots rocketing off into the distance, some flying straighter than others. While two find the rough on the left side of the fairway, Garth McCreedy’s drive finds the middle, leaving him with an easy chip onto the green. Watching it unfold, one of his playing partners chuckles, ‘Look at this. Three of us are able-bodied, and Garth’s the one beating us onto the green.” The 63 year old, familiar to many as an employee at the Chilliwack Home Depot, wheels onto the green and two-putts to finish the hole. He hangs on to a golf cart, gets towed to the next hole, and he’s off again, launching another tee shot 100 yards down the fairway. A regular at this par-56 course, McCreedy has been known to get around in 68 strokes, a good score by any standard. He does so with unique technique, custom golf clubs and a healthy dose of determination. “Back in 1989 I was on city council in the district of Squamish, and I was visiting a site where land was being cleared for an equestrian centre,” McCreedy said. “A fellow had a little CAT stuck in the mud and he was using a double-trunked alder as an anchor point. One of the trunks exploded and fell on me.” The accident left McCreedy a T6 paraplegic, unable to feel anything from the middle of his shoulder blades down. “My kids were nine and 11 at the time, and I had my wife and I was still on city council,” he said. “So I didn’t have much time and sit and whine about it. The process is different for everyone. For me, it’s not that it wasn’t difficult. But I didn’t see the point in bemoaning it. I had to get on with what was available and real.” McCreedy started golfing six years ago. He was still living in Squamish at the time, looking for a wheelchair accessible recreational activity he could do with his now grown-up children. On a trip to Scottsdale, AZ to catch some baseball spring train-

With a set of custom golf clubs, an adapted wheelchair and a playing technique that is all his own, Garth McCreedy has become a force on the course. McCreedy recently shot a 68 at Chilliwack’s Kinkora course, carding a better score than many able-bodied golfers. ERIC J. WELSH/ PROGRESS

ing, he went to Paradise Valley, the home course of rock legend Alice Cooper. McCreedy grabbed a set of junior clubs and played the first round of his life. Mimicking what he’d seen on TV, he tried the classic two hand swing at first. But his paralysis prevented him from getting the proper backswing. “So I thought I’d try a one-handed swing,” he recalled, moving his right arm like a polo player would when striking the ball. “On this one particular par three, I was on a hill where I could look around and see all the other golfers on the course. And they were all stopped to see what I could do. I was ter-

rified, but I figured the worst I could do was flub it. It was a nice, straight 80 yard par-three, and I actually hit it well and got it on the green.” Back home, an inspired McCreedy got himself a US Kids Set, a set of clubs built for young golfers. His home course was Squamish Valley before he moved to Chilliwack a few years back. Here, he improved rapidly while playing rounds at Kinkora, Aquadel and Cultus Lake. “When I first started, I wasn’t worried about what to do or how to do it,” he said. “I was just worried about making contact with the ball and getting it go somewhere

in front of me. Everything else, I learned as I went along.” In May of this year, McCreedy was hitting balls at the local driving range. “I had my bucket, hitting a few balls when I saw a woman amble up and stand behind me,” he said. “I hit a few more, and then I said, ‘Can I help you?’” The woman was Valerie Beebe, a local golf instructor and wife of custom club maker Ross Beebe (Chimo Golf). The right-place-at-the-right-time meeting led to McCreedy getting a set of clubs built by Tom Wishon Golf Technology, cut to size by Beebe. “They’ve made a huge differ-

ence in my game,” he said. “With the last set, my drives were 150-160 yards at best and my irons were all over the place. These clubs have given me a lot more control with my chipping and approaches. They’ve given me so much more confidence and made a round of golf much more enjoyable.” McCreedy gets lots of looks and lots of comments as he makes his way around a course, almost all of them positive. “They’ve always been really complementary,” he said. “Just the fact that I’m out there and not just sitting at home. At some point, people stop to watch. And they always come up to me after the fact and say, ‘Hey. That was pretty good.’

Grizzlies suspend eight prior to Friday night game The GW Graham senior football team played shorthanded Friday in a game against Langley. The Grizzlies suspended eight starters for ‘contract violations.’ Specific violations weren’t mentioned, but the GWG player contract covers everything from academic standing to personal behaviour to drug and alcohol use. “The integrity of the player conduct contract and the program demands that we do something about contract violations, even if it seriously hurts our chance of competing with Langley,” said GWG head coach Laurie Smith. “The goals of this program are to graduate exceptional student athletes, mentor young men and women with positive role modelling and help them make good choices. Those goals are way more important than whether we win a game.” The game was played after Progress press deadlines. Get an update in the Thursday sports section.

Sports Chilliwack Cascades excel in classroom Chilliwack natives are all over the University of the Fraser Valley’s list of Academic All-Canadian student athletes. The list was released Thursday. Two Chilliwackians on the womens’ bas-

ketball team, Sarah and Nicole Wierks, were named. Former Sardis secondary school soccer star Danika Snook got the nod from the UFV womens’ soccer team and Craig Robinson was recognized on the

mens’ soccer side. He has since graduated. With 140 studentathletes participating on eight different UFV teams in 2012-2013, 15 per cent achieved an 80 per cent or higher average in their studies.

Their overall GPA average was 2.95. “I’m very proud of what these student athletes have accomplished and they are most deserving of their awards,” said UFV Athletic Director Rocky Olfert.

Sokolowski takes top spot at Sunfair meet Chilliwack’s Kate Sokolowski grabbed gold in her first major cross country meet, topping the field at a competition in Yakima, Washington.

The 15-year-old GW Graham student competed in the junior varsity women’s three mile run. She took the lead early in the contest and used her diminutive

build to good advantage, gaining ground on the upward portion on each of the six steep hills that make up a large portion of the Sunfair course.

Sokolowski completed her run in a time of 19:25 to place well in front of Idaho’s Hanna Orton. Seventy-two other girls that took part in the event.
