FVRD threatens legal action over incinerator

■ P LAY T IME

Jeff Nagel Black Press A closed-containment coho salmon farm on land. Heat flowing to an existing pulp mill. And a pharmaceutical algae farm to soak up captured carbon dioxide. That’s all part of Aquilini Renewable Energy’s vision for “eco-industrial” uses that would be paired with a garbage incinerator it wants to build for Metro Vancouver on Squamish Nation land at Port Mellon, across Howe Sound. Aquilini’s is one of four prospective waste-to-energy plant sites unveiled Thursday that Metro will consider further. The only other site not previously made public is one in south Vancouver at the foot of Heather Street, near the Oak Street Bridge. The Vancouver site has been advanced by Plenary Group even though Coun. Andrea Reimer noted the City of Vancouver has banned mass-burn incineration within its city limits. The other two sites – previously reported by Black Press –  are one at Duke Point near Nanaimo, where proponent Wheelabrator/ Urbaser would barge waste across the Strait of Georgia, and Delta’s Lehigh Cement plant, which proposes to burn garbage that it would first dry and process into refusederived fuel. Several of the nine bidding firms already short-listed by the regional district appeared before Metro’s zero waste committee Thursday morning to outline their proposals. Representatives from the Fraser Valley Regional District were not impressed. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz, who chairs the FVRD, said Friday the district would consider legal action if Metro Vancouver moves forward. Continued: METRO/ p8

City pegs spring for chlorination completion Jennifer Feinberg The Progress There’s still some upgrading left to do on Chilliwack’s new $900,000 full-time chlorination system to increase storage capacity. But the changeover to a permanent water disinfection system is well underway and is expected to be completed by April or May of 2014, say city officials. It’s been challenging to run a temporary system on a full-time basis. The existing system did not have the bulk storage capacity for chlorine, which meant it was onerous to keep the drinking water wells disinfected on a continual

basis. Once the upgrade is complete next year, it will be 90 per cent less labour intensive, since operators won’t be required to keep the wells treated with small amounts of chlorine to keep it running 24/7. Crews have been physically and laboriously disinfecting drinking water wells around the clock since Fraser Health used its statutory powers forcibly impose the order last March, due to several e.coli readings. “Lately I’ve been getting more calls from people about chlorination,” noted Mayor Sharon Gaetz. Some wanted to know what they could do to mitigate the strong

taste of chlorine, and she’s still telling them to try leaving the water in a container overnight in the fridge, or going the filtration route. “At this point we’re just looking forward to having the whole system upgrade completed.” The good news for users is the system upgrade won’t increase water user rates. Water users share costs through a water fund, according to staff. Since the upgrade was covered by existing capital reserve funds, it means that there will be no wateruser rate increases to pay for capital construction costs of the new system. Many of the existing water

system components are being incorporated into the full-time system, so the upgrades are mainly focused on increasing the capacity and automation to handle bulk quantities of sodium hypochlorite. Initial estimates were for up to $1.5 million to switch from Chilliwack’s temporary, emergency chlorination system to a fulltime disinfection system with more storage capacity. But the new system designed by a city consultant ended up with the lower cost of $900,000. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

Trustee hopefuls offer ideas for revenue innovations Katie Bartel The Progress Given the financial constraints school districts are finding themselves in these days, districts are being encouraged more and more to look outside traditional funding sources to supplement operations. School trustee byelection candidates were asked what innovations they would bring to expand revenue opportunities into Chilliwack school district, if elected. These were their responses. Rob Stelmaschuk: I would meet with all the Trustees to discuss any ideas to expand rev-

enue opportunities. Maybe prize lottery draws, 50/50 draws, or auctions on donated items to auction on line. I think that with all of the trustees working together we could incorporate these and other ideas to supplement revenue for the Chilliwack school district. Harold Schmidt: The provincial government provides each school district a grant of $8,603 for each FTE (full-time equivalent) student. More students means more funding. The district should make all efforts to keep students attending school, (K through Grade 12 graduation) and thus have an increased FTE revenue base.

Investigate the possibility of year-round schooling or double scheduling, as a cost-saving measure. Cap administrative salaries and bonuses and/or consolidate administrative positions and responsibilities for a cost-saving measure. Double the fines for speeding in school zones (as per construction zone fines), with the extra monies going to the school. Karen Jar vis: I would bring the ability and desire to commit the time and energy required to engage with all stakeholders. Through such a collaborative process, we can share and build

on the creative ideas of one another, in order to think both inside and outside the box with respect to funding the needs of our school district. It is only through collaboration that we can have success. Ben Besler:  I would strengthen the current revenue streams that we have to get the most for our district. I would use the relationships I have established with provincial decision-makers to advocate for Chilliwack to get its fair share of operating and capital funding. Then I would expand on and encourage stronger relationships with the business community to create more student engagement, build relationships,

■ C HRISTMAS C RAFTS

and offer more choices to allow every student the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Dan Coulter: Chilliwack needs strong, public education that serves all students - not just those at schools that can fundraise. If elected, I would work with all stakeholders locally to ensure that all local fundraising was equitable and directed towards where it was needed most. Corey Neyrinck: I think that the best innovation would have to be going to the City and province to work together to come up with more funding.   kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Busy weekend for firefighters Firefighters from two halls doused a small fire Friday night in the 45,800 block of Silver Avenue. Crews from Halls 1 and 4 were called out at 6:05 p.m. to a two-story home. The fire started in the attached garage, and firefighters saw smoke and flames as they arrived. They made short work of the blaze, extinguishing it with minimal damage to the garage and no damage to the home. The cause of the fire looks to be accidental. The same halls were called out to another fire early Sunday morning. This one happened in the 46,200 block of Margaret Avenue, where smoke and flames emerged from the rear of a single story home. Again, firefighters worked quickly. The outside of the home took the worst of it, with the interior suffering light smoke and water damage. The residents were home at the time and are currently being looked after by Emergency Social Services. The cause of this fire is being investigated by fire department officials and the RCMP.

Sardis library helps bump up budget Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack is feeling a bit of a pinch as it heads into its first full year of operations at the freshly built Sardis library. “We are seeing a significant increase to our library budget,” noted Coun. Chuck Stam at the last council meeting. The brand-new $2.5 million library building, which opened in May on the Twin Rinks site, has been “well used” by

the community ever since, he underlined. All new materials were stocked on the shelves from shiny bestsellers, to justreleased CDs and DVDs. Chilliwack’s library budget for 2014 is $2.8 million, which is up from $2.6 million the year before. The operating costs for the Sardis library were about a million dollars. But it’s a pinch to the budget that they fully expected and planned for. City officials saved up to pay for the library-

Police see link in two robberies The Chilliwack RCMP is asking for help with the investigation of two robberies. The first happened Sept. 14, at 10:02 a.m. at the Teskey Market on Promontory Road. The suspect, a five-foot-eight man with a medium build, was wearing a yellow sweat shirt, black hat and sunglasses. He had a black cloth covering his face, and made off with money. At 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 19, an 85-year-old woman was robbed in the 4500 block of Patten Avenue. This time, the suspect was described as five-foot-seven Caucasian man with a medium build, possibly in his 40’s with short brownish hair. It is believed a white Kia Soul may have been involved in both robberies. Anyone who may have info is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Have candidates really done their homework? And what about the district’s Accelerated Enrollment in Industry Training (ACE-IT) program? Currently there are offerings for ACE-IT programs in dairy production, a partnership with Greenbelt Veterinary, as well as in welding, heavy duty mechanics, and autobody repair – all partnerships with UFV. An ACE-IT hairdressing program is also in development. Sounds like Katie trades to me. BARTEL Coulter’s also been heavily advocating for an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma program for Chilliwack, which, to date, the school district doesn’t have. (G.W. Graham middle-secondary school has an IB middle years program for students between the ages of 13 and 16.) The IB diploma program is a two-year, intense, academic program, similar to advanced placement, that enables secondary students to earn first-year university credits while still in high school. It’s internationally recognized and accepted by many universities worldwide. But the thing is, like most things, IB costs money – a lot of money.

ALL STAR WRESTLING PRESENTS

The application for a diploma program alone will set a school back more than $23,000 US. And that doesn’t include annual fees – also in the double digit thousands – IB teacher certification seminars, or student fees. Where, Mr. Coulter, is Chilliwack going to get that money? From the government? A government that’s been tightening the education funding purse strings for years? I don’t think so. But the thing that boggles my mind the most through this whole byelection is that not one other candidate has called Coulter out on his obvious lack of knowledge or research on the community he’s running in. Rather, in one form or other, Ben Besler, Karen Jarvis, Rob Stelmaschuk and Corey Neyrinck have actually all got behind his call for action, agreeing that the school district should have more trades opportunities and an IB program. What? Does this mean none of the candidates have knowledge about the school community they are running to represent? Or, are they just getting behind political buzz words in hopes they’ll get the points needed for a win come election day? Either way, scary times ahead for Chilliwack school board.

Chilliwack school district has a trades program. It also has strong, long-standing partnerships with the University of the Fraser Valley. And yet, listening to some of the school trustee byelection candidates speak this past month, you’d think Chilliwack had neither. Right from the get-go school trustee candidate Dan Coulter has been platforming on a need for more trades and UFV partnerships in Chilliwack. “The bottom line is that Chilliwack students don’t have the same opportunities students in other districts have,” said Coulter. “We need more pre-apprenticeship programs in our schools. We need a more significant partnership with the University of the Fraser Valley.” He’s not alone. Others in the byelection race have followed in his footsteps championing for the same. Which has left me scratching my head. What about the Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) program? Is that not trades programming? Currently there are 151 high school students from across the district enrolled, gaining graduation credits through apprenticeships. And thousands more, I’m sure, who have successfully graduated from the program since it was first implemented in 1995.

Think before you shop Many Canadians — including Chilliwack residents — will vote with their feet this week and head south on Black Friday in hopes of finding bargains on electronics, appliances, apparel and food. This trek is part of a general trend of Canadians to cross-border shop while our dollar’s value stays relatively high, and although the price spread is just 10 per cent — not a huge difference given the time spent in border line-ups and the cost of gas — the general impression is that U.S. retailers do a better job in keeping prices low. The truth is more complicated as retailers have been adapting to consumer demand, offering competitive deals and early shopping hours for Black Friday to keep shoppers at home. As well, the entry of U.S.-based Walmart and Target have forced Canadian retailers to sharpen their pencils. But Canadian retailers can’t take all the blame for the price differences. In fact, Canada’s relative small consumer market compared to the U.S. contributes to higher pricing overall. For one thing, foreign suppliers have historically charged more for their product, knowing that Canadian consumers will still pay the higher price, and because Canada is a more costly market to service. Transportation costs, distribution costs, (somewhat) higher labour costs, tariffs and fees as well as higher rent and real estate costs all add to the mark-up Canadians pay on goods. It’s a fact of life in a country with a smaller population that consumer goods will be more expensive. But should retailers ignore the desire of Canadians to get more for their money? Absolutely not, they need to take some responsibility for the problem of cross-border shopping and do what they can to keep customers at home — whether it be through enhanced customer service, warranty servicing or more competitive pricing. At the same time, Canadian consumers shouldn’t be let off the hook. They need to know that circulating their dollar in their home community keeps themselves and their neighbours employed, and thus benefits local economies. Dollars spent in Canada will also ensure that we continue to enjoy health care, a strong social safety net and many other benefits. When it comes to quality of life, you get what you pay for. ~ Black Press

L OCALLY G LOBAL

A dog’s life can be a complicated world The stabbing death of a pit bull last week while being walked on Vancouver’s Kitsilano beach was tragic and could have been avoided. According to media reports, last Wednesday a six-year-old pit bull was being walked onleash in an on-leash area of the park when an alleged off-leash pug dog owned by an elderly man ran up to it. What exactly happened next is still confusing but the end result is that the pit bull was stabbed to death by the pug’s owner. According to the SPCA this weekend, the dog was stabbed three times. The tragic killing was devastating for the pit bull’s family. No doubt the incident has also deeply upset the pug’s owner too. It is distressing to think that for the sake of a leash in accordance with

park bylaws a pet died. The story is a grim head’s up for many dog owners walking their pets in public places. You can’t blame them for feeling the need to be more vigilant and watch for any situation that could turn a simple walk into a crisis. Margaret Unfor tunately the pit bull breed EVANS gets a bad rap. Yes, there are the occasional animals that are problematic. But with proper handling, training, and the right level of proactive prevention and precaution pit bulls have a great track record of being safe companions and great family dogs. Our family has owned a variety

of dogs (black labs, shepherds, collies, beagle, a husky cross) for 35 years. Some came as puppies; some were give-aways. A few had little behavioural issues that were corrected over time. All dogs can be aggressive or defensive in a perceived threatened situation. They can bite and fight, some better than others. It is every owner’s responsibility to not only know their dog’s particular personality and behaviour but to know how they are likely to behave in the face of provocation. What are the triggers? The simple act of walking a dog in a public place has the potential to go sideways at any moment given a sudden, uncontrolled situation. How will the dog respond and how will each owner respond to the dog’s sudden shift in behaviour? Dogs bring to any momen-

tary encounter their breed behaviour, their own personality, and the collective baggage of their previous experience. From a dog’s point of view, being walked is a complex exercise. Their incredible noses read the airwaves, picking up the scent of other dogs’ urine and interpreting the entire story of that animal – male, female, what they ate, what they touched, where they have been and if they are in heat. They read the body language of dogs around them, passive or aggressive. They watch activities, listening to sounds that might trigger excitement, distraction or fear. To them, shouting might sound like barking. . Walking the dog is not a time for thinking of other things, listening to music in ear buds, or phoning or texting friends. It only

takes an instant of inattention for a situation to unravel. While a dog walk should be quality time there should always be an effective plan B to deflect any confrontation with an outof-control dog. Those red-flag moments can largely be avoided with an immediate change of course. Right now it is probably unfair to judge what really happened last Wednesday. Much more needs to be understood about the moods, emotions, and conditions of the pit bull and the pug, the reactions of those in control and what were all the obvious and subtle factors in play. Hopefully the incident doesn’t unravel into bureaucratic silliness like banning breeds. All the facts, tragic as they are, need first to be gathered and assessed.

Business has a place in public education Accessing much-needed funds provided by local businesses and corporations is critical to our educational system today. School board hopefuls Dan Coulter and Karen Jarvis are way off base with their negative viewpoints towards “corporate involvement” in our schools. For Mr. Coulter to suggest “public education is public, everyone pays enough taxes” might sound great on the campaign trail, but it is not realistic. Indicating that there is no place for corporate involvement in either our education or health care systems suggests Mr. Coulter is unaware of the $200 million raised thus far for the new Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. I believe there may be the odd dollar in there from private enterprise…. For Mrs. Jarvis to suggest “my kids aren’t here to promote business, they’re here to be educated” is another naïve outlook. With ongoing government cuts in almost every sector, do we really think that our government will ever adequately fund the needs in our schools? Do we think government funding will actually improve to the point that we are happy with what’s happening in our educational system? I think Mr. Coulter and Mrs. Jarvis might as well be looking around for Mr. Rourke and Tattoo from “Fantasy Island”! Shouldn’t we be more concerned about getting more resources for our schools and improving our children’s access to a better education? Shouldn’t we be looking for solutions, instead of hoping the government miraculously finds the money? Shouldn’t we be trying to find more sources of funding, so that we can look at reducing class sizes, having better access to much-needed resources, more time for kids with special needs, and more quality time with our

teachers? We already have corporate involvement in our schools, and we need more, not less. Ford’s “Drive One 4UR School” events have raised roughly $60,000 over the past few years for schools in the Chilliwack district alone. Murray Honda has donated a vehicle for a grad fundraiser for the last two years. Many other businesses help fund our school sports teams and other extracurricular activities. Where would this money come from if local businesses and corporations didn’t get “involved”? Certainly not the government, regardless of who is in power. Creating more revenue streams is critical to the long term success of our schools. Does that mean recognition of our corporate partners in the form of company logos and signage? In all likelihood, yes. Welcome to the reality of the 21st century! Do we really believe that “corporate involvement” in helping to fund and improve our educational system will lead them to dictating what is taught in a social studies class? Ridiculous! We see it all around us; businesses helping local causes, fielding fundraising requests on an almost daily basis. More and more, people are turning to local businesses to help support their programs and events. Is our educational system in such great shape that we can say “no, we don’t need to do that.”? I certainly don’t think so. What do businesses really expect in return? A little recognition, some improved awareness in the community of their involvement and support - of something as critical as our children’s education? That’s how business works! When our narrow-minded school board denied a request for a local school football field to be

named the “Rotary Field”, when the Rotary Club was offering to donate $10,000, I realized how out of touch with reality the school board was. Being a class organization, the Rotary Club still put up the money, but is it realistic to expect local businesses to do the same? If a business is willing to inject some desperately-needed funds into our schools, and get some recognition in return for doing so, are we really willing to say “no, we’re okay”? I hope not. We need to pull our heads out of the sand, think outside the box, and put some effort and creativity into repairing our deteriorating educational system. It’s about choices – we can have the “Rona Industrial Education Wing” and “Chapters-Indigo Library”, or your daughter can be in a class with 32 kids, 12 of whom have special needs or behavior issues, and not enough books to go around. What’s it going to be? Would we need guidelines and parameters for corporate involvement in our schools? Absolutely. That’s where we should be focusing our efforts – solutions. Solutions to the problems facing our educational system – not “hoping” that our government of the month is somehow going to find the money needed to improve the education our kids are getting, to improve graduation rates, and make our youth more effective leaders of the future. Anyone who thinks the government will step up with the funding needed to fix our educational system is sadly misguided, and shouldn’t be running for anything, except maybe the hills…”Da plane, boss, da plane!!!”

WORKING TOGETHER... Since 1924

for a better Chilliwack

Paul McManus Commercial Account Manager, Chilliwack Ford

Zero tolerance approach fails to help students be questioned. The old “spare the rod, spoil the child” approach simply won’t cut it anymore. According to the Association of American Psychologists, zero toleration has failed to improve school discipline. Suspending/ expelling kids is an “archaic” policy (Trustee Barry Neufeld). It creates unintended consequences for students,

their families and society as a whole. Finally, as to when an individual should be considered mature and responsible? Evidence from the field of neuroscience is clear: “executive functions” such as planning, working memory, and impulse control, are among the last areas of brain to mature – they may not be fully developed until half-

Four sites unveiled for new Metro Van waste incinerator the funnel-shaped valley. The regional district wants to burn an extra 370,000 tonnes of garbage per year – in addition to the 280,000 that now goes into its existing Burnaby incinerator – as part of its strategy

to end trash shipments inland to the Cache Creek Regional Landfill. The sites unveiled last week are strictly the ones proponent firms are advancing for their exclusive use, subject to negotiations and local government approval. Six more have also been proposed but are being kept secret while Metro decides whether to option them for lease or purchase. They arose from a separate call for potential sites that allowed any land owner to propose their property for consideration. A private individual, company, municipal or aboriginal government, or senior government, had the chance to advance sites under that process and they are to be made public in the new year. That would potentially allow Metro to discard a proponent’s proposed site, if it proves problematic, and instead match that bidder up with a new site from the second list ahead of further short-listing and a final round of bidding in 2015 by two or three remaining proponents with fully fleshed proposals. Several bidders that didn’t submitted their own secured site proposal could also be paired with any of the yet-to-be-revealed nonexclusive sites. Metro Vancouver is under orders from the province to fairly consider both in- and out-ofregion sites in light of air pollution concerns from Fraser Valley residents. Most of the proponents aim to build mass-burn incinerators, but say their proposal is state-of-the-art compared to many conventional burners in the world. A couple of firms propose other technologies such as gasification. Metro promises public meetings near each proposed site and says a final project proposal will undergo intense scrutiny, including a provincial environmental assessment and a public health assessment. If approved by the province, a new wasteto-energy plant or plants could open by 2018, at a cost expected to be at least $450 million.

Harrison salmon stronghold agreement signed Jessica Peters Black Press Bald eagles soared high above the heads of speakers at Pretty Estates on Tuesday, as the Harrison Salmon Stronghold Strategic Plan was signed. Several groups have been working on the plan for the past two years. The Harrison River was declared a Pacific Salmon Stronghold in 2010, by an international team of scientists based out of the Wild Salmon Center in Portland. It was identified as one of the healthiest and most productive salmon ecosystems in the Pacific Basin. The ceremony included dancing and drumming, with four young dancers from Sts’ailes dancing on their own. Willie Charlie, the working group chair, invited everyone in the audience to join in with the boys, on the lawn behind Rowena’s Inn. Several school children were at the event, from Bradner elementary school and Sts’ailes, and many joined the boys in The Happy Dance. It was a moment that brought many of the adults to laughter, but Charlie underlined that it’s that sort of “coming together” that will be needed in the future. “We will need to work together. We’re not going to be able to look after all of this on our own.” The Harrison Salmon Stronghold Plan brings together a long list of like-minded groups that includes the Sts’ailes, the BC Wildlife Federation, BC Federation of Drift Fishers, Harrison Mills Regional Association, ACES of Lake Errock, David Hancock Wildlife Foundation, International Rivers Foundation, Pacific Salmon Foundation, Fraser River Salmon Table, Pretty Estates, and many others. Representatives from each group signed a charter on Tuesday, signifying they are com-

mitted to implementing the strategic plan. The plan outlines the Stronghold’s mission, which is “safeguard the biological diversity of the area; promote ecologically sustainable lifestyles and economic, cultural, and recreational activities; encourage scientific outreach, research and education, and responsible use of natural resources, and aspire to be a world model for an environmentally driven economy.” It also outlines numerous threats to the Harrison salmon, including increasing visitor pressures, development, infill of wetlands and sloughs, boat and foot traffic in spawning areas, growing concentration of fishers, incompatible resource exploitation, mixed-stock fishing and a lack of integrated governance on salmon, salmon habitats, and water resources. The plan calls to support the provincial initiative to create a Wildlife Management Area, and pushes for monitoring of the salmon and eagle ecosystem. “There are many organizations here,” David Hancock said on Tuesday, “and we all have one thing in common, and that common thing is the love of that river and what it produces.” Hancock is involved with the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival. One of the concerns facing the area is increased tourism traffic, something that the festival has taken to heart, Hancock said. “For years we’ve been asking ourselves, are we going to make a bad intrusion?,” he said. “Too much love an interest in the land? Finally a year ago, after having cameras out on the centre of the flats, we realized every seven and a half minutes somebody either with a big camera, or running with a dog, or a fisherman, or kayaker

or a canoeist was going by, lifting the eagles off their resting place.” What the eagles need is the quiet feeding place they’ve known for hundreds of years, if not longer. They created a Chehalis Eagle and Salmon Preserve, and the initiative has led to signage along the viewing areas to teach people the importance of keeping their distance. That initiative has dovetailed with this Stronghold agreement; both have support of the David Suzuki Foundation.

RCMP in Chilliwack, Agassiz and Hope are looking to fill their cars with food at the Stuff the Cruiser event. On Dec. 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., marked RCMP vehicles will be parked outside five grocery stores. Officers will be asking for donations of non-perishable food items, or cash, to be forwarded to local community food banks. “In our daily work we see who the less fortunate are in our community, and what they do not have is what we take for granted,” said RCMP Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “The Stuff the Cruiser food drive is our way of providing some necessities to the less fortunate at a special time of year.” The Stuff the Cruiser event has become a major contributor for the food banks which are administered by the Salvation Army (in Chilliwack), Hope Community Ser vices and Agassiz-Harrison Community Services. In 2012 this event helped provide food and gifts to over 5,000 people. Chilliwack locations for this year’s event are PriceSmart Foods in the Salish Plaza, Save On Foods in the Vedder Plaza and Cooper’s Foods in the Garrison Plaza. RCMP cruisers will be at the Cooper’s Foods in Hope and the Super Valu in Agassiz. For more info in Chilliwack, call Jason Charney or Harinder Kheleh at 604-792-4611.

News CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST Agassiz firefighters Simon Ozzard, Alan Pryor and Ross McInroy received the inaugural Robert J Planje Memorial Cup, for helping a man in a wheelchair enjoy the Agassiz Speedway Meet and Greet earlier this year. The award was presented by Planje’s brother, Henry Planje. LESLIE MCKELLER PHOTO

Join us for a healthy breakfast and Give the Gift of Health by supporting the Chilliwack Hospital and Health Care Foundation Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 7am to 10am At the Coast Hotel in Chilliwack

Inaugural memorial cup given to firefighters Jessica Peters Black Press When a handful of local firefighters took Gord Roblin on a personal tour of the Agassiz Speedway this September, everyone was moved by the act of kindness. They carried him in his wheelchair and walked with him as he met with the drivers at the annual meet and greet event. For Roblin, it was a night at the track to remember forever. But for another man in the stands, that act of kindness was the impetus for an annual award. Henry Planje was so moved by the firefighters’ actions that night, he knew that he had to recognize it in a meaningful way. So, he set out to create the Robert J. Planje Memorial Cup, in honour of his brother. He awarded the Memorial Cup to Agassiz firefighters Ross McInroy, Alan Pryor and Simon Ozzard at the Speedway’s annual banquet earlier this fall. The inscription on the large cup reads: For assisting the challenged in motorsports. “My brother succumbed to foul play over a domestic struggle,” Planje explained. His brother was mentally and physically challenged, he added, and had let a man he didn’t know live with him in his Chilliwack trailer home. Planje was considering evicting the man when they got into a heated argument that led to Planje’s death on Dec.13, 2010. Planje’s roommate, Steven Frederickson, was later convicted of manslaughter. “We want to put a positive spin on (my brother’s) life,” Planje said. “It’s totally appropriate to have a professional trophy to recognize these men.” The cup will be awarded annually to someone who has helped someone with a physical or mental disability in the motor sports world. “I do think these peo-

ple need some recognition,” Planje said. “What these guys do, they go into terrible conditions and go to horrible accidents, and after all they’ve done, they still give more. “They’re wonderful, wonderful people,” he said. Roblin, who needs a wheelchair to get around, has been a fan of the Agassiz Speedway for most of his life. He was surprised to be carried onto the track at this year’s meet and greet, where he was able to get up close and personal with the cars and drivers. While Roblin can’t remember exactly when they started going to the track, he knows he hasn’t missed a race night in years. “It goes way back,” he told Black Press in September. “Back when dad was with us.”

Make the most of Black Friday shopping Black Friday is one the biggest shopping days of the year in the United States, offering the perfect time to begin holiday shopping and save money on incredible deals. In recent years, that trend has come north of the border, as more and more Canadian businesses embrace Black Friday as an opportunity to better serve eager Christmas shoppers. Although the shopping frenzy may not be quite as intense as it is to the south, surviving the day unscathed and arriving home with discounts galore involves having a game plan for success. This plan may prove useful for most of the shopping season. • Know what you can get locally without driving too far. Just because someone advertises something in a different community doesn't mean you can't find it here, saving travel time and expenses. You may also find that the sales last all weekend, not just on Friday. • Know the prices of the items you want to buy. Scour advertisements in advance of Black Friday to gauge the regular retail prices for common items, including electronics. Comparison shop for the best prices and make notes to help you when Black Friday arrives. • Understand the fine print of "door busters." Door buster sales are meant to get shoppers into stores, where retailers hope shoppers will make additional purchases while taking advantage of advertised deals. If door buster items are all you're looking for, read the advertisements carefully, noting the start and end time of the discounts and if there will be limited quantities. In addition, determine if there is a special return policy for sale items purchased on Black Friday. • Dress for comfort. If you plan on spending hours shopping or standing in line, wear sensible, comfortable shoes and clothing. Leave a large purse at home and opt for something compact that can be draped securely over your shoulder and body to navigate the crowds. Keep your coat in the car or make use of a coat check service if available. Dress in layers if you will be waiting outside for stores

to open. This way you can shed clothing as the mercury rises or when you get inside. • Arrive together but shop separately. The "divide and conquer" method of shopping allows everyone in your shopping party to score good deals. Split up shopping tasks and then head to different areas of the store. Share and collect your purchases when you meet up after the rush. • Make a list and stick to it. Black Friday buyers' remorse come Saturday morning is common for those who have overextended their budgets and purchased items they did not need. Know ahead of time what you plan to purchase and do not veer off course. • Scout the stores ahead of time. Visit the stores where you plan to shop a few days before Black Friday. Learn the layout of the store and where everything is located. Try on certain clothes or read over the labels of big-ticket items you plan to buy. Knowing where items are located and having all of your information in advance will cut down on the time it takes to find items on Black Friday. • Don't overlook nontraditional stores. Many other stores, from pharmacies to supermarkets, stock items apart from food and toiletries. Consider taking advantage of their sales for some Black Friday deals. • Park off campus. Parking lots can get just as crowded as the stores themselves. Save yourself time and the stress of finding a spot by parking near the store but away from the crowd. • Clean out your car prior to shopping. Make room in the trunk or cargo area for all of your purchases. For those who will be buying large, heavy items, find out if the store will ship the merchandise or will hold it aside until you can take it home. Understand that some stores will not hold items and enlist a friend or spouse to help you pack purchases into the car. • Promptly store receipts. Designate a folder or envelope for all of your receipts to keep them organized and handy. • Pack a small snack and drink. It's easy to become dehydrated and hungry waiting in long lines, which can compromise your decision-

making abilities. Bring a snack so that you can recharge your body and continue shopping. • Leave the kids at home. Any holiday shopping can be stressful, and children can easily get lost or bumped around in the fray. It is safer to leave them home so you can focus your full attention on shopping. • Know when to call it quits. Establish a firm cut-off time for ending your shopping excursion. This way you can head home, rest and sort through your purchases.

Cornerstone Custom Framing puts you in the picture The proper presentation of cherished mementos, or acquired art does not have to be complicated or costly, says Krista Butt. Krista is owner of Cornerstone Custom Picture Framing, which recently relocated to Mill Street in Chilliwack’s downtown. She’s been helping people display their favorite photographs, showcase their art, and organize their artifacts for more than five years. Her background is in museum studies, so she understands the importance of presentation and preservation, not just for today, but for years to come. The work is never dull, she says, with a smile. Her customers are always finding

ways to surprise and challenge her. The requests she fields are a varied as the people she serves. It might be a grandchild’s first drawing, a graduation certificate, or a signed print. And her work is not just limited to the two dimensions. She recently framed a sword and its scabbard, and is working on an antique broach. In fact, shadow boxes (as they’re called) have become a popular way to preserve and present three-dimensional objects in an artistic and organized way. Krista says her goal is to work collaboratively with her customers; to understand their tastes and nurture their ideas to fruition. She wants them to feel part of the

process. “It’s creative and it’s hands on,” she says. There is much to choose from, she adds with a laugh, from the kind of frame, to the colour of the mat. But the process should be fun and the outcome satisfying for both. Krista’s museum training helps her ensure that pieces get the special attention they deserve. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be

expensive. What few people realize is how affordable custom framing can be, she says. There are ways to save money (like using fine resin instead of wood) without compromising the quality. To learn more, Krista is happy to offer a no obligation quote. For more information, drop by Cornerstone Custom Picture Framing at 9345-A Mill Street, or call 604.392.2273.

Friends and family gather at Society The last establishment at that location was run more like a pub, she says, but they have a clear vision of how they’ll be different. “We are a family owned and operated restaurant with a food primary licence,” explains Beausoleil, who adds she grew up in Chilliwack. “We wanted to make our atmosphere welcoming and very comfortable — like it is at home.” The affordable and inspired menu fea-

Co-owners Danielle Beausoleil and Fabrizio Rossi are thrilled with the support of the Chilliwack community since the Nov. 1 soft opening of Society Gathering House on Nowell Street. “We’re so happy to bring such a nice venue to the downtown core,” says Beausoleil, who adds that people have been thanking them for opening the new restaurant. Their style is fresh and contemporary, and the Society tagline is “Join the Evolution.”

tures “a little something for everyone, and lots of options to make a great meal from various appetizer plates,” says Rossi. There’s Chilliwack French Onion Soup, High Society Nachos or Fish Tacos, as examples of the Gathering Plates. They joined Barwatch as soon as they could, and there will be no live entertainment at Society, but plenty of special features, like wine and oyster pairings. The resto was built around what remained of the structure of a heritage home, known as the Patten house, at the corner of Princess Avenue and Nowell. “Every room in the house has its own name and unique ambiance,” says Rossi. The Sky Lounge above the main floor of Society, features a large table for a private party of 15, there’s also privacy in the The Pinnacle room up top. Or patrons can also be seated in a cosy booth in the Glass Room, or a table on the Runway on the main floor. They put in new booths in the Glass Room, and a crystal chandelier from Italy is the stunning focal point of the new venue. The LED chandelier design is cleverly echoed in the logo of the Society name, and beneath it is the Social Table. “Once we hung it up and saw how beautiful it looked, we incorporated it into the

logo,” she adds. They are making plans for a splashy grand opening, on New Year’s Eve, with a Great Gadsby theme and a vintage 1926 car for taking memento photographs. Event tickets are already selling briskly, at 60 per cent sold. “When we do something, we do it right,” says Beausoleil.

How to go green when holiday shopping protect the environment and also save consumers money on utility bills. • Plan shopping trips in advance. The holiday season can be hectic, and as a result many holiday shoppers find themselves getting their holiday shopping done as time allows. But breaking up holiday shopping into several trips can increase fuel consumption and lead to more time spent in traffic, where vehicle emissions can contribute to air pollution. Instead of getting your shopping done on several quick trips, plan a holiday shopping trip in advance, setting aside enough time to get as much shopping done as possible in a single trip. This can cut back on some of the stress of holiday shopping and benefit the environment at the same time. • Set up a holiday shopping carpool. Many people carpool to and from work, and such a system can be employed when holiday shopping as well. Plan a shopping trip to the mall or downtown Chilliwack with neighbors or friends to cut back on

your fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. Remember to leave enough room for the presents on the ride home! Remove unnecessary cargo from the trunk or other storage areas before beginning your trip. • Buy local. Local businesses not only support charities and seasonal events during the holiday season, but offer products and services that you may otherwise be driving unnecessary distances for. When shopping, look for locally-produced products, whether it's arts and crafts produced at a nearby store or organic foods purchased from a local farmer's market. Locally produced products don't need to be shipped to make it onto the shelves at local stores, making such products far more eco-friendly than mass-produced products shipped from factories far away. The holidays may not seem like an eco-friendly time of year, but shoppers can take steps to reduce their carbon footprints when shopping this holiday season.

The color green is synonymous with the holiday season. But as holiday revelers deck their halls with green this season, they also can go green when shopping for loved ones. Many shoppers are concerned by their carbon footprints. In an effort to embrace a more eco-friendly lifestyle, such shoppers may look for ways to continue their holiday traditions, but do so in a way that's more considerate of the environment. Though the holiday season is often associated with excess, holiday shoppers can still find eco-friendly ways to put smiles on their loved ones' faces this year. • Purchase energy efficient products. The holiday season is a great time of year to find deals on major appliances, which may be on sale to make room for next year's models. When shopping for appliances this holiday season, shoppers should look for energy efficient products that consume less energy without sacrificing performance. When purchasing appliances this holiday season, shoppers should look for ENERGY STAR qualified products, which can

Repeat with remaining ice-cream to give six ice-cream balls. Freeze until very hard. Put chopped chocolate and white vegetable shortening into top of double saucepan, stand over hot water; stir until melted, cool. Cover an oven tray with aluminium foil.

Stress-free holiday hosting tips Gatherings with friends and family are a big part of the holiday season. Many people travel during the holidays to spend time with distant relatives, but those same people often want to gather with those loved ones who live nearby as well. Thus an abundance of gatherings comes in December, when office parties, dinners with family and festivities with friends have a way of dominating the last five weeks of the year. All of those gatherings translate to a lot of holiday hosting, and hosts can easily feel overwhelmed as they try to juggle hosting duties with everything else that comes along during this time of year. The following are a few steps holiday hosts can take to make hosting a lot less hectic and a lot more fun. • Enlist help. Just because a holiday party is at your home does not mean others can’t pitch in or will be unwilling to help. If you plan to decorate for the party, invite a friend over to assist. When hosting a holiday dinner party, ask guests to bring certain items to save you some work. Ask one guest to bring some dessert, saving you the time it takes to visit the local bakery or bake your own desserts, and ask others to provide side dishes. This drastically reduces the time it will take you to shop for groceries and cook the meal, leaving you more time to spend with friends and family, both during the party and in the days leading up to the festivities. • Plan well in advance. The earlier you begin planning the party, the

less stress you’re likely to feel as a host. Certain items for the party, like decorations and certain snacks and beverages, have no expiration dates, so buy such items well in advance of the party. This leads to one less task to tackle in the weeks and days leading up to the party. Planning early also affords you ample time coordinate with guests and decide who will be responsible for certain party tasks. Planning a party at the last minute can be stressful, so if you know you will be handling hosting duties this holiday season, start preparing for the party as soon as possible. • Hire a cleaning service. One of the more difficult parts of holiday hosting is cleaning the house before guests arrive. A thorough house cleaning can take up a substantial amount of time, which tends to be hard to come by during the holiday season. To avoid a late night cleaning session or the need to spend a valuable week-

J R

end afternoon hard at work around the house, hire a cleaning service to come and clean your house in the days before the party. Such services can clean your home in a fraction of the time it might take you to do so on your own, and this removes one of the more time-consuming and arduous tasks from your to-do list. • Have a theme for the party. Holiday hosts may worry about how to entertain their guests throughout the party. A theme party makes it easier to entertain guests, who can show up decked out in holiday pajamas or sweaters or bring along a favorite unique compilation of holiday songs for a singalong. Such themes set a tone for the party right away and often make it easier for guests to unwind immediately. Seek suggestions for a theme from your guests to make the party even more fun. • Pass the buck. Hosting a holiday dinner party?

Consider passing the hosting duties on to a local restaurant, especially if your friends and family members are on board with the idea. If your schedule is especially hectic this holiday season, then move the party from your home to a local restaurant, where the staff can worry about accommodating your guests and you can simply relax and have a good time with your loved ones. When choosing a restaurant, look for one with a menu that features something for everyone. Entree selections should include a pasta dish, a beef dish, a seafood dish, a poultry dish, and vegetarian fare. Holiday hosting is meant to be fun, but hosts often find themselves scrambling to prepare for the party as it draws closer. Planning early, seeking help and input from your guests and delegating certain tasks can help ensure hosts have as festive a time as their friends and family members.

Community ‘PAWS for a Break’ at UFV eases student nerves UFV’s new PAWS for a Break program featuring Mac the golden retriever is proving to be more than a pet project for Dawn Holt, head of counselling for UFV Student Services “It’s not about talking

to me, it’s usually about unconditional friendliness from Mac and giving students a chance to leave their worries at the door,” says Holt, who implemented the PAWS program this month following a successful pilot

project in October. On Thursday, Nov. 28, from 11 am to 1 pm in the Alumni Hall on the Abbotsford campus, Mac will be joined on campus by several assistant dogs in training. Students can join Mac and the UFV

Counselling department in partnership with PADS (Pacific Assistance Dogs Society) to meet their dogs. This is a chance for students to take a break, relax, and have some fun with the lab and golden retriever puppies while

Two local veterans of the Second World War were honoured for their contributions by Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl last week. Flying Officer Dave Barrett and Warrant Officer 2 Bernie McNicholl were presented Bomber Command honours for their service in Bomber Command Operations. “I’m very proud to have the privilege of recognizing the heroic service of Flying Officer Dave Barrett and Warrant Officer 2 Bernie McNicholl.” Strahl added, “The courage and dedication of the brave Canadians who served in Bomber Command played a significant role in securing victory for the Allies in the Second World War.” The Bomber Command honour, in the form of a bar to be worn on the ribbon of the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal, was created by the government to honour the approximately 50,000 Canadians who served with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and the Royal Air Force (RAF) in Bomber Command operations over occupied Europe. It was one of the country’s most significant contributions to the Second World War effort. Barrett was a pilot on Mosquito Bombers ser ving with the “Pathfinders”.

Archives to be home of Norman’s photograph collection The Chilliwack Museum and Archives will receive one of its largest donations of photographic records to date this week. The donation consists of more than 400,000 negatives and prints archived from the longrunning Chilliwack business: Norman’s

Photographic Studio. Last spring the owners of Norman’s Photographic Studio, Rick and Brenda Davis, approached the Chilliwack Museum and Archives with the offer of this large donation. The business, which has been in operation since 1948, has been

archiving its images as part of a commitment to offer re-printing services to its clients. Now that the business is going mobile, Rick and Brenda were concerned about the future of the 255 banker’s boxes of negatives and prints spanning 58 years. The donation to the

Chilliwack Museum and Archives, which consists of an estimated 400,000 negatives and prints dating from 1947 to 2006, also includes antiques, props and equipment formerly used in the business. The image collection includes portraits of individuals, families,

weddings, babies, businesses, graduations, community organizations, and events. In accepting the collection, the Chilliwack Museum and Archives ensures that former patrons of Norman’s Photographic Studio will have continued access to the prints and negatives, and will

now be able to view and purchase copies of their portraits through the Archives. N o r m a n ’ s Photographic was founded in 1948 by Norman Williams who began the business out of high school and operated it for 40 years. In 1988 Rick and Brenda Davis took over the business, operating on Yale Road until 1993 when they relocated to Kitchen Road where they’ve operated since. The Norman’s

Photographic Studio collection represents one of the largest, single donations of images to date at the Chilliwack Museum and Archives, and adds to the Archives’ existing collection of more than an estimated 100,000 photographic records. This donation compliments a collection of cameras originally used by Norm Williams in his business, which was previously donated to the Chilliwack Museum and Archives in 2010.

Grizzlies and Whalers in final

GW Graham’s junior football Grizzlies beat the Argyle Pipers 21-7 on Saturday, punching their ticket to a provincial final. GWG will face Parksville’s Ballenas Whalers this Saturday, with a 10:30 a.m. kickoff at BC Place Stadium. The Grizzlies faced

North Vancouver’s Pipers on neutral turf at Abbotsford’s W.J. Mouat secondar y school, overcoming a flag-fest to get the win. GWG was penalized 14 times on offence alone. When they weren’t being marched backwards, the offence was lethally efficient. Linemen Jake Troyan and Elijah Schellenberg paved the way for rushing majors by Billy Hanson, Jordon Breuker and Emerson Smith. Tyler Sprott hauled in some momentimchanging catches, and kicker Spencer Breslin was perfect on three

convert attempts. “The offense executed well today, and moved the ball successfully when we weren’t dealing with penalties,” said interim head coach Adam Smith. “We need to be more disciplined, but the kids fought through the adversity really well.” Breslin was a big contributor on defence, reeling in two interceptions. Safety Ben Pretty also had a pick. Braydon Winger had a disruptive day at tackle, recording three solo tackles and a quarterback sack. Linebackers Cainen Bergh and Randy Nixon led a

defence that has yielded just one touchdown over its last two games. GWG sent its Grade 8 squad to the provincial final last year, where it suffered a heartbreaking loss versus Notre Dame. If successful, the GWG juniors would provide the school with its first ever provincial banner. ● GWG’s Grade 8 Grizzlies have a title shot Tuesday afternoon, looking to knock off Langley’s HD Stafford Skyhawks in a tier-II AA final. It is called the President’s Cup. The teams square

off at Burnaby Lakes, with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff. ● The Grade 8 provincial final leads off the Subway Bowl Championship day, with Lord Tweedsmuir and St. Thomas More kicking off at 8 a.m. St. Thomas More and Terry Fox are in the AAA junior varsity final at 1:30 p.m. The AAA senior final has Terry Fox facing Mt. Douglas while Carson Graham and John Barsby (Nanaimo) clash in the AA final. Get more info online at bchighschoolfootball.com and grahamfootball.ca

If Chilliwack Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl isn’t popping a couple Gravols each time his team hits the ice, then he must have a cast-iron stomach. His team is wading through a motion-sickness inducing year, with more ups and downs than the stock market. For evidence, look no further than the justcompleted weekend. The Chiefs were outshot 61-34 Friday night, but came away with a 6-3 road win over the West Kelowna Warriors. The Chiefs were back home Saturday for a game against their division rivals, the Langley Rivermen. They laid an egg, losing 4-0. Where’s that Gravol again? “I was disappointed in our complete level and mental part of the game tonight,” Smyl said after the Langley loss. “We did so many things well against West Kelowna, then took three or four steps backwards in this one.” At times, the Chiefs put it together for a complete game, at both ends of the ice, and it looks beautiful. Witness a 6-1 win over Coquitlam last weekend. Still, too often, they find one facet of their game clicking and the other half missing in

action. On nights when their defence is airtight, they’ll struggle to score. On nights when they get five goals, the other team gets six. Smyl sees a lot more good than bad these days, but consistency is the one missing ingredient. “We’d been playing better the last two and a half weeks up until tonight,” Smyl said. “Our power play and penalty kill have been better. We’ve been better defensively and we’ve been getting more goals. Tonight was just one of those games where nothing went right.” It would help a lot if his team saved some of their better performances for home ice, where they’re 3-10-0-1 this year. They’ve been far better (4-6-1-1) on the road. The weekend ahead is a busy one, with a homer against Powell River Friday followed by road games in Penticton (Saturday) and Langley (Sunday). The combined record of those three teams is 50-19-3-6. “We’ll get back on our horse and get back to work,” Smyl said. “We’ll learn from tonight and hopefully we’ll start to eliminate these types of games.” ● Captain Austin Plevy had two goals against the Warriors. Cooper Rush, Jake Hand, Andrew Silard and red-hot Kyle Westeringh had singles. Westeringh’s tally gave him four goals in his last three games. Get more Chiefs info at chilliwackchiefs.net

Chilliwack four making travel plans for karate worlds Her kids call her mom. Her students at Vedder middle school know her as Mrs. Sharp and the karate kids at Valley Shidokan Karate call her Sensei Sal. Salvina Sharp’s hopes to add a new title soon — world champion.

Sharp has qualified to represent Canada at the 2014 JKA World Championships, which will be held Oct. 17-19 in Tokyo, Japan. This is the fourth time Sharp has qualified for the event, but family and work commitments have always prevented

her from going. The 39 year old is not letting anything hold her back this time, and she’ll be joined by three other Valley Shidokan athletes. Junior team members Amanda Keriliuk, Zach Charlton and Damon McArthur are

also making the trip. Keriliuk and Charleton are doing this for a second time, having competed at the World Cup in Thailand two years ago. The Chilliwack four qualified with strong performances at nationals, held Nov. 10 in

Montreal. Salvina’s husband, Valley Shidokan sensei Don Sharp, has represented Canada many times internationally. He will be helping his students prepare. “Training for the rigors of international competition has been a

long road for these students,” he said. “These individuals are some of the finest examples of students at the Dojo. I am very proud of each of them and they are carr ying the torch now.” Trips to Japan aren’t cheap.

Valley Shidokan will be hosting a fundraiser open house Nov. 11, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be demonstrations, mini-lessons and free sushi. Get more information online at valleyshidokan.com

Cascades stumble on the road

A rough weekend saw the University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team lose their first games of the 2013-14 season. The Cascades were on the road Friday night, visiting Edmonton for a date with the University of Alberta Pandas. The fourth-ranked Pandas rode deadly three-point shooting to a decisive 73-61 win. The Pandas hit on seven of 16 shots from

beyond the arc, with guard Renee Byrne doing most of the damage. In 29 minutes, Byrne drained four treys and finished with a gamehigh 17 points. She dished out four assists as well. The Pandas outrebounded UFV 43-29, with Andria Carlyon pulling down 11 boards. The cold-shooting Cascades shot 37.5 per cent from the field. Chilliwack’s Kayli Sartori paced UFV with 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting. The Wierks sisters, Nicole and Sarah, combined for nine points between them, with Nicole snagging a teamhigh six rebounds. Courtney Bartel did

well in 20 minutes off the bench, pulling down five boards and adding four points. “A lot of lessons tonight against an elite level team,” said Cascades coach Al Tuchscherer. “We are not at the level these teams are at and that’s my fault – we have the tools we just need to start putting the puzzle together.” His Cascades moved on to Saskatchewn for a Sunday night date with another top dog, the Huskies. The home team built a 12 point halftime lead and cruised to a 77-57 final. Ukrainian import Natalia Gavryliuk was the only UFV player to hit double digits in scor-

ing (12 points). UFV’s starting five scored just 33 points between them. Sartori went 2-of-12 from the field. Mission’s Aieisha Luken was 3-of-12 and Sarah Wierks was 2-of8, though she did lead the team in rebounds with six. The Cascades come out of the weekend 6-2, which leaves them tied with the UBC Thunderbirds atop the Canada West Pacific division standings. The two teams clash Friday night at the Envision Athletic Centre in Abbotsford. Tip-off is 3 p.m. They meet again Saturday afternoon with a 2 p.m. start time. See ufvcascades.ca

Major Midget Hockey league completed a weekend sweep of the Vancouver North East Chiefs, earning four of a possible four points. The T-Birds won 5-2 Saturday, with goals

by Chilliwack natives Hayden Guilderson and Dryden Downing. Downing had another goal, plus an assist, as his team took the Sunday rematch by a 5-2 score.

The weekend wins have moved the T-Birds to 7-9-2. They’re eighth in the 11 team circuit, but just three points behind the fourth place Great Van Canadians.

2013 October

Congratulations

Leaders

to the following students on achieving

Of Tomorrow

excellence at school and in our community

Congratulations to Maddi McManus, a grade 12 student currently attending G.W. Graham Middle- Secondary, who has been nominated as a Rotary Club “Leader of Tomorrow.” Maddi McManus possesses many of the ideal characteristics of a Leader of Tomorrow, as she demonstrates excellent leadership skills within the classroom and school community. Maddi achieved A Honours in both French 11 and French 12, and she currently acts as a peer tutor in French 11. Maddi is an inquisitive student, who relishes learning and consequently demonstrates both a willing spirit and a joyous approach to her studies. The qualities of a highly successful Second language learner necessitate risk-taking and curiosity, as well as a willingness to be vulnerable and a desire to pursue excellence in their quest for academic knowledge and linguistic competence. These same qualities can only serve well the future “Leaders of Tomorrow.” Indeed, openness to learning, a desire to understand and be part of a community larger than yourself and the work ethic and positive attitude to achieve, and by example, lead, in the 21st century, are reflected in students like Maddi McManus. Bravo!

Dupreez Smith is a dependable, mature, charismatic, hardworking, dedicated, determined, congenial young man who puts his best efforts forward in all he is involved. As the current President of the CSS student council, he runs council meetings, co-leads the leadership class, and co-captains the daily announcements. He also leads/ participates in both the African Relief and Environmental clubs at CSS. He is the first to volunteer and the last to leave a project or activity. I can count on him for anything, and trust him implicitly. Dupreez is dependable, takes every initiative, and models outstanding leadership skills in all he does. He is most definitely a leader, both of today and tomorrow. Congratulations Dupreez on being selected Chilliwack Secondary School’s “Leader of Tomorrow” for October!

Haejoo Oh does not know the meaning of the term “down time”. She is a dynamo of social justice action. An “A” Honours student, she more than “meets the challenge” at Sardis Secondary School with regards to her studies. However, Haejoo looks beyond the classroom to engage in a number of social justice initiatives. A key member of the Community Club, the Ecomaniacs, the Be The Change Committee and the Multicultural club, her focus is to make the world a better place on whatever level she can. Despite a heavy schedule working with all of these groups, this year she has also taken on an important leadership role as a member of the SSS Grad Committee. This group is tasked with ensuring that grad activities are the best they can be. With a career goal in the area of international relations, we can count on the fact that the future of our world is in great hands. Congratulations, Haejoo on being selected Sardis Secondary School’s Leader of Tomorrow for the month of October.

Haejoo Oh

Rotary Club of Chilliwack Fraser Sardis Secondary School

The Criteria for Selecting the Student is Based on the Following: The student that represents the Rotary 4 way test... • Is it the truth? • Is it FAIR • Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

ROTARY MOTTO: Service above Self!. The strongest emphasis will be put on: Excellence in community service (within the school or externally). Also excellence in Trades, Academics and Sports.
