Rock stars hit the ice Curlers from 13 nations chase $200,000 in prize money

Abbotsford News

The Masters Grand Slam of Curling, which began its sixday run at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) on Tuesday evening, is being billed as an Olympic preview, and for good reason. The $200,000 cashspiel has attracted 15 men’s and 15 women’s teams from 13 nations. Nine international rinks have already punched their tickets to the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia in February, and all six men’s and six women’s rinks who pre-qualified for the Canadian trials are also in attendance. But ask defending Olympic men’s gold medalist Kevin Martin if this event gets visions of Sochi dancing in his mind, and he shakes his head. That would be getting ahead of himself. It’s hard enough just to survive the Canadian Olympic trials, which will be contested in Winnipeg Dec. 1-8. “It’s all about the trials,” said the 47-year-old curling legend, who also owns four Canadian MORINEE Brier titles, one world championship (2008) and ONLws.com an Olympic silver (2002) in addition to his gold abbyne from the 2010 Vancouver Games. “It’s not really about international (play) yet. That’s for later, and for one (Canadian) team – hopefully us, but who knows?” Martin, who was edged 7-6 in an extra end by Rui Liu’s Chinese Olympic rink in the opening draw, headlined a parade of rock stars on Tuesday night. In the other men’s game, Scotland’s David Murdoch – a twotime world champion skip – built a 4-0 lead over Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen and hung on for a 5-4 win. On the women’s side, Switzerland’s Mirjam Ott edged Eve Muirhead of Scotland in a battle of the last two world championship gold medalists. Ott, the winner in 2012, beat reigning champ Muirhead 7-6 in an extra end. Sweden’s Margaretha Sigfridsson, a four-time runner-up at the worlds, also needed an extra end versus 2012 world bronze medalist Heather Nedohin of Edmonton, winning 5-4. Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, the 2008 world champ, scored six in the seventh end to dispatch South Korea’s Ji-Sun Kim 11-5. The Masters marks the first time the AESC has been converted into a curling venue, and Martin lauded the conditions. “The ice is gorgeous,” he said.

New crime centre operational by April Abbotsford Police welcome ‘Real Time Intelligence’

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is heralding a new initiative that will enable police agencies across the province to better share information and speed up investigations. The Real Time Intelligence Centre (RTIC) BC is being developed through the Justice Ministry and is slated to begin operation in the Lower Mainland in April, with the final phase completed in 2016. It is expected to be located at the new $1 billion RCMP E division regional headquarters in Surrey. The project came out of recommendations in the Missing Women’s Inquiry, which found that the lack of information-sharing among Lower Mainland police agencies led to delays in Robert Pickton being identified as the main suspect in the case. One of the key people involved in the RTIC, Staff Sgt. Earl Andersen of the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), pre-

Abbotsford will contribute about $144,000 annually to the new endeavour which will improve information sharing across municipal boundaries. sented the plan at a recent meeting of the Abbotsford Police Board. He said the centre will staff 43 people, with more than half being analysts and researchers. It will operate 24/7, providing “real time” information to front-line officers throughout B.C. as they are on the scene of a crime or investigation. Staff will search internal databases and Internet sources to provide pertinent details to officers that could, for example, help identify a suspect in a crime. Andersen said this

information is particularly useful in offences such as armed robberies, predatory sexual assaults, home invasions, murders, gang-related incidents, and those involving violent emotionally disturbed people. Many of these people move across jurisdictions, committing crimes in one or more cities while residing in another. Andersen gave an example that occurred at the Real Time Crime Center in New York City. A man who had robbed a pizza restaurant and then ran off was observed by the owner to have a tat-

too that said “Sugar” on his neck. Staff at the crime centre were able to enter that information into their various databases. Through one for the correctional system, a former inmate was identified, as well as his current address. Police were then able to proceed to that residence, where they found the tattooed suspect with a load of cash and a gun. Andersen said, although many police agencies currently have their own analysts, they tend to work a Mondayto-Friday day shift. If a crime occurs on a

Friday night, valuable information might not be available during the time it is most crucial – within the first 48 hours of a crime. The centre’s annual operating budget is estimated to be $5.8 million, with costs shared by the three levels of government. Abbotsford’s share would be about $144,000 annually. Const. Ian MacDonald said the funding would be covered by moving one of its current analysts to the site. He said Lower Mainland police agencies beefed up their information-sharing in about 2005, with the advent of the Police Records Information M a n a g e m e n t Environment (PRIME). “What the Real Time Intelligence Centre is offering is something way beyond that … I think that it certainly will create efficiencies in terms of the more serious incidents. We’ll be given an investigative head start. I would certainly look at it as an enhancement for community safety,” he said.

Aggressive dogs to be controlled in FVRD Alina KONEVSKI Abbotsford News

A bylaw to control aggressive and dangerous dogs in two electoral areas has been approved in principle by the Fraser Valley Regional District. That means residents in electoral areas D (Popkum and Bridal Falls) and E (Columbia Valley/Chilliwack River Valley/ Lindell Beach) may soon have someone to call when faced with dangerous dogs in their neighbourhoods. Currently, FVRD offers animal control services only within the city of Chilliwack. The cost for the service in areas D and E is about $45,000 annually. It would require residential property taxes to rise by an average of $14.65 annually.

The bylaw has gone to the province for approval. The FVRD is targeting a start date of January 2014. Three other regions, electoral areas C, F, and G, remain interested in the service as well but are further investigating funding requirements. Because these areas are further removed from FVRD’s pound facility operations in Chilliwack, the cost to residents increases. Quick response is also crucial, explained FVRD chair Sharon Gaetz. “FVRD staff will be investigating partnerships with other local animal control providers to see if there is a way to provide the service to those areas at a lower cost. Electoral area directors from C, F and G share residents’ safety concerns

and continue to explore alternative funding scenarios,” replied Gaetz by email. Electoral areas A and B, the two largest geographical areas, will not participate because of the high cost associated with travelling distance. The new bylaw will be limited to addressing aggressive and dangerous dogs. It will not apply to dealing with noise from barking or stray dog pick-ups. FVRD’s existing animal control services operate exclusively in the city of Chilliwack and include dog licensing, a pound, a pet adoption service, and enforcement of the city’s animal control bylaw. The services will remain centralized in Chilliwack when other electoral areas sign on.

Norrish pipe repaired by December, says city After being severed by a landslide, Abbotsford and Mission’s water supply pipe is estimated to be repaired and operational by early December. A 300-metre slide on Oct. 2 broke the pipe and blocked off the Forest Service Road, causing the city to shut down its Norrish Creek water source. The city is currently receiving water from wells and Cannell Lake. The city states that work crews have been labouring 16 hours per day clearing away the debris and were able to access the damaged water pipe at Norrish Creek late last week. However, the debris removal has been taking longer than originally expected due to the instability of

the rock face at the site. Work crews have also started the process of repairing the support structures for the pipe and assessing the requirements for pipe replacement and/or welding repairs. The city said further excavation work will continue to be done around the pipe this week in order to assess the full extent of the damage. There is concern that the pipe may be twisted, which will mean a greater time for removal and repair. The watermain repair, rock scaling and cleanup is estimated to cost $300,000. The city website states that some residents may have noticed their water tastes or smells different than usual, but is safe to drink.

Nominations are being sought for people who contribute their hard work, skills and talents to their communities. The deadline to put forward a name to the B.C. Community Achievement Awards is Nov. 15. Recipients are selected by an independent advisory council of local leaders based on the nominee’s efforts within the community. Those chosen will be honoured at a ceremony held at Government House in Victoria next spring where they will be given a medallion designed by B.C. First Nations’ artist Robert Davidson.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK Do you support the concept of mobile shelters for the homeless?

Fines for dumping? Show us the video!!! Really need to get that on the news to catch those woman. Kara Hoffman

To answer, go to abbynews.com

This happens at every thrift store. If there are security cameras then the “well intentioned” dumpers should be charged with dumping, up to a $2,000 fine. Maybe a few fines will get people to obey the rules... Jo Anne Boscott

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED: Do you support Abbotsford council’s plan to ban medical pot grows in this city?

Why on earth do people do that? If they NEED the clothes, then ok if they are going to wear them, I understand if they are homeless. Well-dressed people are just plain greedy, although it may not be inside the store it is still thieving because it wasn’t given for them. Maggie Gee

Earlier apathy no argument against future worry Re: British Columbia oil spill study misinterpreted, Oct. 24. My response to Tom Fletcher’s various articles on oil energy use, oil transportation, and related issues is as predictable as his position on the topics. Although, he often doesn’t seem to take a position except by taking issue with those who have issues with the whole business. His column suggests that if no one has been concerned about our terribly inadequate spill response capability while bulk crude-laden tankers have plied our coast for the past 40 years, then they have no business being concerned about new tankers entering the waterways. It seems to me that on just about any topic

that becomes a public concern, there is a history about which we at first know little or nothing, followed by a growing awareness, which at some point hits the radar, and then the fan. Citing earlier ignorance or apathy is no argument against the expressions of present or future concern. In the case of oil transportation on our coast, Fletcher has admitted that oil spill response is inadequate. My response, therefore, is to say that now we have woken up, we should take two positions: beef up our response capabilities to be able to better handle existing traffic, which is now a fact of life; and don’t multiply the probability of an accident by adding new traffic.

SCHOOL DISTRICT

NEWS Students Cash in on District Awards

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

It’s a good year for Dogwood/District Authority Awards in Abbotsford, as 121 recipients – an increase of 27% from the previous year – have each been awarded a $1,000 scholarship.The grade 12 students undertook a variety of projects last year, and successfully completed 100 hours in various areas of passion: community service, practical arts, and creative arts. Participants in the program had to make a public presentation of their project to a panel of adjudicators. Many of you will remember the displays in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. The Ministry of Education allocates these awards annually, in the form of a $500 cheque, and a $500 voucher that can be redeemed when a student enters a designated post-secondary institution. Pictured are two of the recipients, Rick Hansen Secondary grads Chendan and Ruby with Superintendent Godden at their Bhangra Fashion Show event display last April.

Jeremy, an Afghan hound, is lead around the show ring at last weekend’s Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of B.C. Show at the Ag-Rec building.

on a regular basis to provide useful feedback about school and education from a student’s perspective to trustees, district and school administrators. Students share their ideas about what makes school engaging, and what policies can be improved to make schools better for learning.The youth council members often reach out to their peers with key questions, and gather the feedback for the adults to consider.The students represent Abbotsford Senior,Yale, Robert Bateman,WJ

Mouat, Rick Hansen,Abbotsford Traditional Senior and Bakerview Centre for Learning.The students are mentored by four secondary vice principals: Vijay Manuel (WJ Mouat), Linda Pollastretti (Robert Bateman), Rob Sloboda (WJ Mouat; at Rick Hansen last year) and Michael Hendricks (Abbotsford Traditional).

Abbotsford has been chosen as one of six sites in the province for the Ministry of Education's Quality Teaching and Learning Initiative.The district’s new Innovation Centre housed at Abbotsford Senior, will be a centre point for an exploration of the attributes and features of quality teaching and learning in BC schools. A key goal is to look at how to best achieve system wide transformation in teaching by charting existing excellent teaching and learning practices, and to consider how such practices could be introduced on a wider scale in BC. Each of the six districts has been awarded a $10,000 grant to fully investigate quality teaching and learning. Quality teaching is also one of the key pillars of the Abbotsford Board of Education’s Strategic Plan.The Innovation Centre, which focuses on science and technology, will be open for students in January 2014.

School District, City, Parks, Recreation & Culture Commission and Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) representatives gathered at a school assembly at Harry Sayers Elementary recently to mark the announcement of an additional grant of $22,000 by RBC to the school's Powerhours Afterschool Program.The program provides children academic and recreation activities in a safe and enjoyable place after school, at no cost to parents/guardians. The school district provides the space, education assistant staff and administration, the city provides the recreation staff, coordination, and programming, and RBC provides funding. In addition, the Board of Education has approved establishment of a second Strong Start at Harry Sayers, to be funded entirely by the district (the province typically funds Strong Starts).This reinforces the Board’s strong support for early learning and Strong Starts, now at 11 locations across the district.

Youth Council Leads the Way Abbotsford students have a voice in the direction of education in our district. ‘YC34’ is a districtwide student council, made up of a group of secondary student volunteers who come together

Abby XC runners shine at home

After having her 2012 cross-country running season derailed by a back injury, Sarya Ross earned her golden moment last Wednesday at the Fraser Valley high school championships. Ross traversed the 4km course at Abbotsford’s Clearbrook Park in 15:27, leading a trio of W.J. Mouat runners in the top 10 of the senior girls race –  Callum Pilgrim was second, while Alicia Unruh was seventh. “I was injured all last year, so it feels really good to be back,” enthused Ross, whose Hawks finished second in the senior girls standings to Walnut Grove and will be seeking a top-five finish at the B.C. championships this week at Aldergrove Lake Park.

Sienna Lenz of Abby Middle won gold in the Grade 8 girls race, while the Abby Christian senior girls team notched a bronze medal led by Carissa Berger’s eighthplace individual result. Other top local finishers included Mouat’s Aidan Bingert (12th, senior boys), Mouat’s Devon Kular (13th, junior boys), MEI’s Katia Heppell (15th, junior girls) and MEI’s Noah Nickel (12th, Grade 8 boys). On Saturday, the BC Athletics cross-country championships arrived at Clearbrook Park, and Lockhart MacGregor’s bronze medal in the nine-year-old boys division highlighted the Valley Royals’ results. Other top-five finishers included Rachel

Bearcat hoopsters will be road warriors Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

"There's no place like home" was Dorothy's mantra in The Wizard of Oz, but the Columbia Bible College basketball teams won't get much of that comfort to open the 2013-14 PacWest conference regular season. The Bearcats will be adopting a road warrior mentality –  all but one of their seven games in the first semester will be away from the friendly confines of Columbia Place. The schedule then becomes home-centric after Christmas. "I think it's a bit of a benefit to us," said CBC men's coach Matt Guynup, who noted his squad was actually better on the road than at home last season. "The ability to go into someone else's place and put pressure on them, I'm looking forward to." The ’Cats men are coming off a 6-15 season which saw them miss the playoffs by two games, and aside from Continued on A20

From A19

top returnees Marcio Juk, Hudson Naylor and Mac Thompson, they've got a freshman-laden roster. Key newcomers include 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;5â&#x20AC;? sharpshooter Addison King, point guards Khyn Sarmiento and Seth Sorensen, and forward Kyle Innes. "I think we're really offensively talented, and we have a lot to learn defensively," Guynup said. The CBC women's program has struggled in recent years, with just one victory in PacWest play over six seasons. But under second-year coach Tamara Larson, the Bearcats could surprise some people this year. "Last year was about building a foundation," Larson said. "This year, we actually have quite a bit of talent to work with . . . I think we're going to fly under the radar." Skye Sealey, a 6'1" centre, will be a key cog, along with returnees Deanna Esau, Michelle Schuurman, Vanessa Funk and Mandy Van Muyen. The CBC hoopsters open on the road vs. the Kwantlen Eagles Friday (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.).

ly throwing basketballs against the wall. He kept at it as his players started to wonder if he’d lost his marbles, then suddenly pulled an egg from his pocket and splattered it against the wall. Players’ jaws hit the floor. “It was pretty epic,” Luyken recalled with a chuckle. “He was like, ‘Now what do you want to be, the ball that bounces back, or the egg?’ And he walked away.” The Cascades, properly focused, were victorious that evening – just one of many classic moments involving the aforementioned five players that Tuchscherer finds himself revisiting these days. He calls the Luyken/ Wierks/Bartel/Kurath/ Hart quintet a “programsaving” class, and it’s not hard to see why. In 2008-09, the year before they arrived on campus, UFV posted a 4-19 record. The next season, they finished last in Canada West at 2-16. But it’s been an upward trajectory since then, and in 2012-13 they staged a breakthrough, holding the No. 1 national ranking for two weeks and earning their first CIS national tourney berth. This season is the fifth and final year of eligibility for Luyken, Wierks,

Bartel and Kurath – Hart redshirted a season due to a knee injury, so she’s a fourth-year player –  and they’re determined to cement their legacy with a legit run at the national title. They’re ranked No. 4 to open the season. Tuchscherer’s relationship with his veteran fivesome is less of a boss-employee dynamic at this point, and more like family. They’re savvy to all his motivational ploys, even the ones that don’t involve eggs. “They’ll see me getting on some of the younger kids at practice, and they’ll be in the background winking,” he said with a chuckle. “They know how to make me laugh – it’s a pretty neat relationship. “I’ve really gone into this season just wanting to enjoy coaching them for one more year.” Q Tuchscherer’s familiarity with his veteranladen squad is in marked contrast to the dynamic facing UFV men’s basketball coach Adam Friesen. Friesen waved goodbye to a trio of seniors –  Sam Freeman, Kyle Grewal and James York – who were pillars of the program and helped the Cascades to the 2012 CIS national tourney and to the Canada West Final Four last season. UFV does have some carryover –  Kevon Parchment had a terrific debut with the Cascades last season, finishing sixth in conference scoring (17.9 points per game) and 10th in rebounding (8.0), while Klaus Figueredo emerged as a key contributor in the playoffs. And 6’7” centre Jasper Moedt has transferred back to UFV after spending last fall at the University of Alberta. But much of the rotation is new, including starting power forward Kadeem Willis, one of the more productive players in the Alberta college league last season. “It’s a totally new feel this year,” Friesen said. “It’s kind of exciting in a way, because everyone’s new to each other. Every day you can see improvements.” The UFV men were ranked 11th out of 16 teams in the seasonopening Canada West coaches’ poll. But Friesen believes that this year’s team has similar talent to the 2012-13 edition – it’s just a matter of sorting out the chemistry. Q The UFV hoops teams open the Canada West regular season at home this week vs. the Lethbridge Pronghorns (Friday, women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and the Calgary Dinos (Saturday, women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.).

Question

Rounding up and riding the RAM range 2014 RAM Roundup The full-size truck market is big business for automakers and a big deal for the businesses and people who depend on them. For almost five decades the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck, with little chance they will lose that crown in the near future. What has been happening, over the last few years, is a strong shift from General Motors to RAM in terms of establishing the second best selling truck brand. The rise in RAM popularity can be traced back to a few key changes over the last several years, from muscular styling to class-leading interiors, a refined ride, plus engine and transmission advancements. I drove the 2014 RAM model range recently, on a beautiful fall day, just outside of Toronto. The “RAM Roundup” was a great opportunity to get my hands on these new trucks well before they arrive at BC dealerships. Looks A big part of the RAM brand success has been built on the sturdy and macho exterior styling. Front and centre is a grille that was enlarged, but better integrated, for the 2013 model year. Depending on the trim the grille finish can be chrome, painted or with a different insert. This feature is one RAM owners love so, in this case, larger

is better. Behind the grille are “active shutters” that close at higher speeds to help send the wind around the vehicle to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The same idea was also behind the longer side step, which helps reduce buffeting down the side of the trucks. One option that I find fascinating, and would seriously consider, is the $1500 air suspension that can be lowered for easier entry into the RAM or loading into the bed. Plus this system automatically lowers over 100km/h to also reduce aerodynamic drag. At lower speeds and for off-road duties, the air suspension can be raised for better ground clearance. Having had a chance to drive several RAM trucks with this feature I notice the already smooth ride is even better and the cabin is further insulated from vibration. Inside In the past trucks were typically used for work. Today, trucks have grown in popularity because they can be rugged on a work site and luxurious for all occupants. Having driven the Ford and new GM trucks recently, I can easily say that RAM still has the lead in interior design and finish with the Chevrolet and GMC right behind. (Ford is looking dated but look for an all-new F-150 in 2015). The centre console can be equipped with an 8.3-inch Uconnect communications and entertainment screen. In addition, there is a large

7-inch screen behind the steering wheel for fully customizable instant information readouts. The dash and seats can be trimmed in leather typically found in luxury cars not long ago.

What women want while car shopping Women are a huge driving force (pardon the pun) in the car-buying world. Studies show that around 60 per cent of new vehicles purchases are made by women. Further to that, matriarchs heavily influence decisions on car buying within the family, too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perhaps as much as 85 percent of all purchases. While many hubbies would love a hot, little sports car, perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always ideal for, you know, life. Buying a vehicle is considered to be the second biggest purchase someone can make. The first is your home. So when someone says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that big of a deal, it kind of is. Not only is it a long-term decision, but a financially significant one as well. It can also bring up many emotions: excitement,

Shooting for the perfect drive

on Sunday, the repeated reference to his perfect race reminded me of another open-wheel racer. Back in the early 1990s, Vancouver Indy racer Ross Bentley strived for what he called the ‘Perfect Drive’, not on the track but on the roads

of B.C. Ross, now coaching race drivers and street drivers in Washington state, always told me that he found the racetrack a safer place to drive. On the track he pretty much knew what other drivers were going to do, whereas drivers on the street were very unpredictable. And I was reminded of that the other morning when a young driver whizzed by me in the curb lane, then cut in front and crossed two more lanes to turn left at an intersection just a block ahead. Of course, he didn’t signal when he got there either! Ross devised a little game that he played every day while travelling to and from work across town. The Perfect Drive Concept was designed to help drivers concentrate and I can’t help it would a great game for us all to play some 20 years on from when he first outlined the idea to me. “The idea is to drive smoothly at a constant speed with minimal braking,” explains Ross, who tells me he still tries to achieve the Perfect Drive daily. “To do so, you must anticipate light changes and ease off when you approach a stale green. You have to slow in such a way that if your passengers had their eyes closed they wouldn’t be aware of the exact point you stopped.” Keeping a healthy distance between your car and the one you are following is key. Others do cut into the space but they disappear as fast as they arrive. And even if you ease off to open up the gap again, Ross figured if even 10 cars did that to you and stayed during the average trip you might lose a minute in travel time. “The Perfect Drive can be continued on page 27

driveway Honda’s ‘Mean Mower’ is set for a special appearance next week in front of 60,000 trade visitors at the world’s premier automotive speciality trade show, SEMA in Las Vegas.

The 1000cc, 109hp lawn tractor will appear on Honda’s stand within the Las Vegas Convention Centre alongside the 2014 Civic coupe, which makes its world debut at the show, as well as an array of personalised Honda cars and motorcycles. Commissioned by Honda (UK) and built by its British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) partner, Team Dynamics, Mean Mower is set-up and geared to achieve a top speed of 133mph, weighing just 140kgm, producing 96Nm of torque and an incredible power-to-weight ratio of 532bhp/ tonne. The project saw Team Dynamics re-engineer a Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor from the ground-up, adding a custom-made fabricated chassis, a 1000cc engine from a Honda VTR Firestorm, a bespoke suspension and wheels from an ATV. It features a custom-made paddle shift six-speed gear system, a bespoke sports seat, a Scorpion exhaust system and a steering rack taken from a Morris Minor. Every effort has been made to retain as much of the look of the original mower as possible. The cutter deck was custom-made in fibre-glass, to reduce weight, while, in a stroke of pure genius, the grass bag provides a happy home for the fuel tank, a high capacity oil cooler and a secondary water cooling radiator. Mean Mower can also still cut grass, at up to 25 km/h, thanks to two electric motors on the cutter deck, spinning 3 mm steel cutting cable at an incredible 4,000rpm. kmorgan@blackpress.ca

ON A SET OF ALL SEASON OR WINTER TIRES

Thanks to their special compound, winter tires offer the elasticity required to ensure maximum grip throughout the cold season, regardless of the road conditions. Summer tires can become hard when the temperatures fall below 7 degrees Celsius, thereby losing the flexibility needed to build up sufficient grip for braking, starting off, and cornering. Because of their greater suppleness in the cold, winter tires are able to interlock with the asphalt, snow, and ice, even at lower temperatures.

If I have to brake jerkily in anticipation of the other driver’s move, I don’t deduct any points!” However, if you hold up traffic or disrupt the flow then you deduct points. “The Perfect Drive can be different for everybody and you can work out your own scoring technique. I keep it simple and figure if I drop four points then that was nowhere near the Perfect Drive. I love his final comment: “Oh, and if you drop a point halfway through, you don’t give up and drive the rest of the way like a jerk.” Give it a try, it’s fun. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca Twitter.com/ChangeGears

WOOD

Kenneth Wallace Peters

Phyllis Cicily Jan. 20, 1921 ~ Oct. 11, 2013

Phyllis Cicily Wood, 92, of Mission, died October 11, 2013. She was born January 10, 1921 in a small town called Brancepeth, Saskatchewan which is 25 miles south of Prince Albert where she grew up on the family farm with her sister Ellen. In 1939 the Second World War broke out. In 1943, at the age of 22, Phyllis went east to Ontario to worked in an airframe and munitions factory. She returned home to help her father with the farm work as all the men had gone to war. When James Alex Wood returned home from the war in April 1945 Phyllis played a major role in nursing him back to health. They were married June 28, 1945 and settled in Saskatoon, Sask. Alex and Phyllis had known each other since childhood as the family farms were nearby. They were married for 68 years. Phyllis is survived by her husband, Dr. Alex Wood, sons Brian and Murray Wood and granddaughter, Sophie Wood. Phyllis made the decision to focus her energies and life on being a wife, mother and community leader. She was very active in their Saskatoon church, St. Andrews United Church, and was very involved with the Sunday school and fund raisers. Next to her family, gardening was her love. She developed award winning gardens and the home was always filled with flowers. We shall miss her love, wisdom, and her beautiful bouquets. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

August 11, 1946 - October 15, 2013 Ken died at home in Mission cared for by his wife Wendy (nee Hough) his best friend and companion for over 30 years. Their daughter Kelly, son Chris and much beloved grandson Josh mourn with her. Ken is the eldest son of Frank & Bernice (nee Ray) brother to Barbara, Lyn, Jaxon & Leslye, brother in law to Gavin & Doug. Ken was extremely proud of his First Nations heritage, a great friend to many, he will be missed by all including his good friends John & Kim. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, November 9th at 2pm at the Mission Alano Club 33229 N. Railway Ave. We were all proud of Ken's 34 years of sobriety.

So, although we had lots of counting to do and I do mean a good week's worth… thanks again and we look forward to sharing this edition with our entire readership.

We have also included the top two finalists in each category. Even though a business, product or service may not win, making it as a nominee is still noteworthy and always helps readers find new products to try!
