A four-walled plywood structure was erected overnight Wednesday for a homeles protest camp, just south of Jubilee Park in an adjacent city parking lot. The city has ordered the walls to be removed.

Homeless go behind walls City issues notice to have structure removed from parking lot near Jubilee Park Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Overnight on Wednesday, an eight-foothigh walled structure was erected in a parking lot on McCallum Road. The four-sided wooden enclosure, in a lot adjacent to Jubilee Park, became the new site of a homeless protest camp that spent more than 50 days in the city park. The structure was built with lumber donated by a private company, said a camp spokesman, who would not identify the business, nor who did the construction. On Thursday, the city issued a notice to take down the walls, which were built on city property without a permit, and those occupying it are trespassing under munici-

pal bylaws. Katherine Jeffcoatt, Abbotsford’s manager of communications, said the city ordered the structure to be removed by 6 p.m. Thursday, after The News press deadline. The original tent village, established in the park under organizer Barry Shantz, founder of the Abbotsford chapter of the BC/Yukon Drug War Survivors, was dismantled as the homeless moved into the new location. A teepee standing in Jubilee Park since the beginning of the protest was brought down Thursday morning, and will be reconstructed in the centre of new structure. Shantz said the walls help protect protesters from the elements and provide stabilization for the tents. He maintained

it would be a physical impossibility to take down the structure by the city’s deadline. He said the camp’s recent move mimics the “Abbotsford shuffle,” which he describes as the city’s historical method of moving the homeless from one site to another – often only as far as 50 feet – without offering solutions. About 30 people have been living in the park, described by Shantz as a protest against the city and police for their treatment of the homeless. The city served the park camp with an eviction notice Nov. 25, calling for it to be cleared within 48 hours. After protesters did not leave, the municipality applied to the B.C. Supreme Court for an injunction for the homeless protesters

to clear out of the park. The notice of claim called for the court order to include all other city parks , as well as authorizing police to arrest and remove anyone not complying with the order. Jeffcoatt said the notice against the new structure will become part of the city’s application to the courts for an injunction, which will call for the structure and tents to be removed from parks and city land. That hearing proceeds Monday morning in the New Westminster courthouse. Shantz said efforts will be made by the protesters to clean up Jubilee Park. However, the city has closed the park and the adjacent lot to the public, citing safety concerns.

Winter Holiday Safety Winter holidays are a time for families and friends to get together. But that also means a greater risk for ¿re.

Choose decorations that are Àame resistant or Àame retardant. • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn. • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. • Keep decorations away from windows and doors. Holiday Entertaining • Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your home ¿re escape plan. • Keep children and pets away from lit candles. • Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. • Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop. • Ask smokers to smoke outside. Remind smokers to keep their smoking materials with them so young children do not touch them. • Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet cigarette butts with water before discarding. Christmas Tree Safety • Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched. • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 1-2” from the base of the trunk. • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like ¿replaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. Before Heading Out or to Bed • Blow out lit candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Turn off all light strings and decorations before leaving home or going to bed.

ARE YOU Alleged gang associate sentenced GIFT IDEA

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

A man who police previously identified as a gang associate has been sentenced to 28 months in prison on charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a firearm contrary to order. Manraj Singh Gill, 25, pleaded guilty to the two charges and was sentenced Dec. 6 in Abbotsford provincial court, where he was also given a lifetime firearms ban.

Two others counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking were stayed. Gill was arrested in Abbotsford in early September by the Abbotsford Police Department’s emergency response team, in coordination with the drug enforcement unit. A search of his residence turned up two ounces of heroin, three ounces each of meth and cocaine, and more than $6,000 cash. Ammunition for a 9 mm pistol and a .308 rifle were also located, while a small amount of heroin and a “zip gun”

(an improvised firearm) loaded with a .22 calibre bullet were found in Gill’s vehicle. At the time of his arrest, Gill was on two years’ probation after serving a nine-month sentence for possession for the purpose of trafficking and unauthorized possession of a firearm in Abbotsford. He was released under a 10-year firearms and weapons ban. Gill is still facing an attempted murder charge in Strathmore, Alta. for allegedly stabbing a man multiple times in 2007.

Bars ask for later New Year’s hours

TODAY’S OBSTACLE:

COLD ONES

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Abbotsford will allow some local drinking establishments to stay open late on New Year’s Eve. Local bars called on the city to extend New Year’s hours to 2:30 a.m. instead of 1 a.m., allowing them to compete for patrons on the busy holiday night. A report from city staff stated that because of the 1 a.m. closing time, local bars are at a disadvantage to businesses in other communities for the holiday evening. It also said the extension will allow people more time to celebrate in Abbotsford and give residents the option to celebrate locally. Staff consulted with Abbotsford police, who have no concerns about the extension, which would only be permitted to bars in compliance with the Bar Watch program standards. The bars that applied include the Highwayman Pub, Cheers, Abbey Road Restaurant and Taphouse, Sneaker’s, Finnegan’s Pub and Phoenix Lounge. The report stated that the city may incur minor policing costs, not expected to exceed $2,000.

It cites declining use of postal mail –  a billion fewer pieces of mail were delivered last year compared to 2006 –  as households shift to online bill payments and other digital communication. The price of stamps will also go up from 63 to 85 cents each if bought in booklets, or

$1 for individual stamps. It means up to 8,000 fewer postal workers will be needed, which Canada Post says will be shed by attrition, as nearly 15,000 workers are expected to retire or leave voluntarily over the next five years. “With its current labour costs, Canada Post has a much higher cost structure than its competitors in the

A Conference Board of Canada report last spring found Canada Post would face losses of $1 billion a year by 2020 without major reform.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK Canada Post has announced it will discontinue the last of its urban home mail delivery. Do you care?

No nativity scene I think I will give a cheer when I see the familiar Clearbrook nativity scene displayed somewhere. I felt so sad to see a tree in place of the nativity we have all loved at Clearbrook Plaza. Mei Alumni Coordinator

To answer, go to abbynews.com

I was just saying to my husband how sad it was that the nativity scene was not in its usual place this year. I have only lived in Abbotsford three years but look forward to seeing the nativity every year. It always reinforced to me “The Reason for the Season.” Terry Begemann

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Do you donate to international humanitarian aid campaigns?

A simple fix: Ask the local churches for donations to cover the costs of set up, take down and maintenance and watch the monies flow in. Curtis De Fehr

110 responded:

I truly believe that if a fundraiser were initiated, there would be more than enough to cover the cost. And the plaza is a perfect place. Allan Bradshaw

YES: 34 % NO: 66 %

Taxpayers get bargain with current independent system Re: Tax dollars should only be used for public purposes, Dec. 3 edition. Ms. Norton claims this funding would otherwise be used to fund the public system. Independent schools like MEI get 50 per cent of what it costs Abbotsford School District to educate a student and none of what it costs to build the independent school buildings, yet the parents that send students to independent schools

still pay school taxes as if they were using the public education system. If the province were to discontinue partial funding to independent schools, those schools would be forced to drastically increase tuitions, making them unaffordable to most students and forcing those students back to the public system. The province would then need to spend billions building new schools or buying unused in-

dependent schools and would need to pay twice as much to educate these students as they were when those same students were in the independent system. Half the cost to educate and none of the cost for facilities. It seems to me that the taxpayers are getting a bargain with the independent school system just the way it is. Colin Reimer Abbotsford

PRIME RIB DINNER THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE FOR OVER 37 YEARS!

Drivers thanked for stopping for hat The other day my husband and I were walking to downtown Abbotsford along South Fraser Way. It was a sunny but very cold and blustery afternoon. In fact, it was so windy that we turned our bodies sideways to walk and tried to hold on to our hats. All of a sudden, there was a wicked gust of wind and my husband’s famous Crocodile Dundee hat was blown into the middle of the fray of very busy traffic. We thought that was the end of this brown legendary hat that had visited many parts of the world. But it was not to be. The traffic stopped on both sides of

PRICING IN EFFECT DEC. 13 - DEC. 19

South Fraser Way. Imagine! The people motioned for us to pick up the hat. At first,we were mesmerized and stood frozen. Then we ventured across the street and noticed people smiling and waving. We laughed and graciously returned the smiles and waves  and celebrated the fact that people took notice and blessed us. So we want to say thank you to all the wonderful drivers who stopped to give us a lot of Christmas cheer. Jozina Chinnery Abbotsford

Representatives from ICBC, the Abbotsford Police Department, and the City of Abbotsford handed out free reflectors and provided tips to pedestrians during an event last Friday. The group was on hand at the crosswalk

according to ICBC. This year, ICBC, police and volunteers partnered to complete safety improvements at nine crosswalks throughout the city. The total cost was $9,350, with $7,000 of that coming from ICBC. The upgrades included “shark teeth” pavement markings that indicate to drivers that they should stop and yield to pedestrians well back from the crosswalk. The idea is to maintain adequate sight lines for pedestrians and drivers across all lanes of traffic.

A new off-leash dog park will be created in Clearbrook Park, in place of upgrades to the existing Gladwin Park site. Two community members, Kendall De Menech, who runs a hydrotherapy pro-

gram for dogs called K9H20, and Liza Whiteside, owner of the new Bosley’s Pet Food Plus on Whatcom Road, began fundraising earlier this year to improve an existing two-acre, off-leash dog park located between Okanagan Drive and Haida Drive, off Gladwin Road.

They raised more than $12,000 to get the project started and worked with the city’s parks and recreations staff to formulate plans. But after assessing the area, they have decided to build a fenced off area for a new dog park in a section of Clearbrook Park. Gladwin Park will continue to operate as a local off-leash dog area. De Menech “absolutely thrilled” about the new plan, which will help to accommodate more dog owners. She said that the new area is buffered from surrounding homes and will provide a great area for canines. A public information meeting will be held on Thursday, Dec. 19 at the Matsqui Recreation Centre from 6 to 8 p.m. The plans will be discussed with an opportunity for community input.

Nearly 200 bags collected in Abbotsford The recent 19th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive collected just under 200 bags of donations in Abbotsford, representing a 62 per cent increase over last year. The event ran Nov. 18-25 and invited the public to drop off

blankets, coats, gloves, hoodies and other items to real estate offices in participating communities. The donations in Abbotsford went to Cyrus Centre for atrisk youth and to 5 and 2 Ministries, which, among its

tasks, provides support to the homeless. Across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, enough items were collected to help more than 20,000 people. For more information, visit blanketdrive.ca.

You’ve heard about soldiers returning from war zones with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). But traumatic events much closer to home can also have serious psychological consequences and leave deep emotional scarring. Motor vehicle crashes are frequent causes of emotional as well as physical injury. It’s not uncommon to be depressed, anxious or afraid to ride in a vehicle again after an accident. Sometimes the emotional, cognitive and psychological consequences can be long-lasting and disabling. If you suffer serious psychological injuries as a result of a car crash, you could be entitled to money compensation.

Stanley T. Cope COPE INJURY LAWYERS

Consider this recent B.C. court case, where the claim was mostly about the victim’s psychological and emotional injuries. Jane (real name changed) was a front seat passenger in a VW Beetle driven by her husband when they were struck in a head-on collision. The other driver, who was responsible for the crash, was killed in the accident. Jane injured her neck, shoulders, chest, lower back, abdomen, left hip, left knee and tailbone in this accident. She also remembered seeing a lady hanging out of the other car’s window with blood coming from her mouth (and kept thinking it might have been her or her husband who had died). She was rear-ended in two more minor car accidents some years afterward. In both cases, the other drivers were at fault. Her physical injuries in the second accident were minor, but it brought up bad memories for her and she recalled crying hysterically at the scene. There were no significant injuries from the third accident. Jane had no previous history of emotional difficulties. She was treated extensively for her physical as well as her psychological injuries from the car accidents. This included treatment from a trauma counsellor, a clinical counsellor and a psychologist for her emotional and psychological injuries.

More than six years after the first, very serious accident, Jane continued to suffer from serious psychological injury (she also had chronic pain problems from her physical injuries). While most of her injuries were due to the first fatal car crash, the two later accidents made her condition worse. Medically, she was diagnosed with chronic adjustment disorder and depressive mood. She also suffered from PTSD, in her case characterized by nightmares and flashbacks, crying spells and fears of driving and being a passenger in a car. Formerly a strong person with an optimistic and upbeat personality, she became a more emotionally fragile one, likely on a long-term basis.

Even with further psychotherapy, her ability to function adequately in a stressful work environment in future was in doubt. The court decided Jane should get $110,000 for her “pain and suffering” including her psychological injuries. She also got judgment for $96,000 for her reduced earning ability – for example, because of her psychological difficulties, she wouldn’t be able to run her own business in future. And she collected some additional amounts, for past wage loss and past and future treatment costs. Cases involving psychological injuries on top of physical ones tend to be more complex. They involve intangible, hard-to-pin-down factors that may be difficult to prove in a court hearing. After an accident, you should seek good medical and legal help as soon as possible. This will help ensure the best possible recovery, and fair compensation for the unfortunate accident consequences. Written by Janice Mucalov, LL.B. with contribution by STANLEY COPE.

about gifts for the little ones during the holidays and often we forget about the older youth, but some of these young people have been through a lot, and for many of them the holidays can be a depressing and stressful time,” says Brenda Monk, branch manager. With the names of 50 youth provided by Abbotsford Community Services (ACS), the credit union staff set up an Angel Tree with the holiday wishes from each person printed on cards for staff and members to take away. “What was really surprising for everyone was that these young people, who would be mostly between the ages of 13 and 19, weren’t asking for iPods or Xboxes or even cellphones like you would expect a typical teenager to do,” explains Monk. “Instead, they were asking for a pair of shoes, some pajamas or a grocery store card to buy food, things that we pretty much take for granted and assume everyone can afford.” “The  youth were stunned by the thoughtfulness and generosity reflected in the gifts they received from the Prospera Angel Tree,” said Simone Maassen, ACS manager of youth services. “One youth received his first-ever brand new pair of shoes. We frequently heard comments like, ‘Is this all for me?’ and received a lot of hugs when delivering the gifts. As one youth put it, ‘I can’t believe they did this for me…and they don’t even know me.’” Again this year, the Angel Tree arrived in the branch in mid-November with the names of nearly 60 youth, and staff and members have been busy playing Santa by collecting gifts to fulfill the wishes on the tree, but more help is needed. “We’ve still got about 20 names on the tree,” said staff member Jennifer Dickson. “So even if you aren’t able to go shopping for a gift or you can only afford a small donation, please stop by the branch or give us a call.” To support the project, visit the branch at 34630 DeLair Rd., or call 604-853-3317.

In 1931, during the Great Depression, there was a need for an organization that could bring women together and expose them to a social, cultural and educational climate that was not available in those difficult times. Most important, there was a need for friendship and support from other women. Beta Sigma Phi was created out of this need. It did not take long before Beta Sigma Phis were helping others.

1. A full night’s sleep ahead of a long drive is important. 2. It’s also a good idea to let a friend know when you’re leaving and the time you expect to arrive. 3. Fill the windshield washer bottle with seasonal cleaner and carry an extra container in the trunk. 4. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses – glare from snow can be hard on the eyes. 5. Wear (warm) clothes that allow good movement to steer and operate the foot pedals. 6. Bring water plus non-perishable food supplies on longer trips. 7. An emergency (first aid) kit. 8. Check the weather forecast, road conditions and for road closures on your route before heading out on a long trip. 9. Good winter tires are mandatory on most high-elevation BC highway routes during the winter. 10. If you must drive in bad weather, it’s a good idea to refuel when the tank drops below half full. If the car breaks down or gets stuck in the snow, having engine heat until help arrives could be important. Useful winter driving web sites: drivebc.ca, icbc.com

2014 Jeep Cherokee The Chrysler group is on a tear these days with month after month of consecutive

Some might not remember the old boxy Cherokee that was sold in the 1990s; it was a very simple design that appealed to diehard Jeep enthusiasts. This new Cherokee is trying to win over new buyers, not just the Jeep faithful. It might look a bit odd at first but when you are in its presence, the design actually grows on you to a pint that it has a futuristic, very modern twist on an iconic nameplate. There is a special Trailhawk version of this Cherokee that has been designed specifically for off-road, with higher front and rear bumpers to help it

traverse ditches and climb mountains. The more practical base front wheel drive (FWD) model starts at $23,495 and is the lowest priced vehicle in the compact SUV class. The All wheel drive (AWD) model is also a value leader and starts at $25,695

Inside The Cherokee is covered in soft-touch materials, comfortable seats and a large touch screen in the centre of the dash for connectivity. The base screen is 5-inches but a larger 8.4-inch screen is available on the $29,995 Limited model. In addition, all models get a second 3.5-inch screen imbedded in the instrument cluster that is fully programmable and provides custom

Drive Not content to use existing engines and transmission in this new Cherokee, Chrysler is showcasing brand new technology in this compact SUV, providing good fuel economy and value. All trim levels come standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission. That’s right, nine gears, the very first

vehicle on the planet to come with this many cogs. Having a chance to drive it with the base 184hp 2.4L 4-cylinder through the canyons outside of Malibu California, I can report that the transmission is so smooth and refined that the driver forgets there is so much at work. The up side is the Cherokee is capable of 9.6.L/100km in the city and 6.4L on the highway. The 4-cylinder engine is a great choice for commuters and the handling is crisp and sure-footed, more like a sedan than an SUV. The optional V6 engine is the first application of the 3.2L V6 Pentastar engine. The bigger 3.6L is used across the Chrysler family but this newly developed, smaller version is wonderful value as it is only $1,300 more to equip it on any Cherokee, from the least expensive FWD model to the most

expensive AWD trim. For $1,300, you get 271hp and a lot more grunt for passing and highway runs. This would be the choice if you do a lot of highway driving to the cabin or skiing. The downside is the added weight of the V6 makes it less nimble compared to the 4-cylinder but both are excellent choices. In addition to carving though the mountains, I had a chance to drive over them in the Trailhawk off-road model. This really is the enthusiast version; it had no problem scampering up anything it came across from big boulders, to sand and mud.

Verdict The starting price is the best on the market, the technology is second to none, and the ride is smoother and quieter than the competition and the interior class above. The styling does take

a while to get used to but it does look better in person. Most people will equip the Cherokee with AWD and the middle North Edition that includes alloy wheels and added interior features for a reasonable $28,695. With the optional V6 engine, the price is $29,995. This is a lot of Jeep for the money and one that is a treat to drive. Now that Chrysler has a competent small SUV in their lineup, their position as the number two seller of vehicles looks strong for a while to come. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Mazda tops in Canada’s Top Twelve for 2014

’’

Bob McHugh

Mazda bagged three of twelve “Best New” 2014 model year category awards just announced by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). The triple award sweep (Mazda3, Mazda3 Sport and Mazda6) had to taste extra sweet as Mazda only had three entries in a field of over fifty vehicle entries. This also positions Mazda with three (of the final eight) contenders for overall 2014 Canadian Car of the Year. The 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year Award was also narrowed down to four “Best New” category award winners: the stylish all-new Jeep Cherokee (SUV/CUV under $35K), great value Kia Sorrento (SUV/CUV $35K to $60K), luxurious Acura MDX (SUV/ CUV over $60K) and the tough-as-nails GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. AJAC award wins in both

SUV/CUV category ahead of some renowned competitive products. The AJAC awards are based on a methodical secret ballot voting process that was completed by over eighty journalist members following a five-day, handson driving event known as “TestFest”, which was held earlier this year in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Same-day, back-to-back evaluations were performed on handling, performance and off-road courses (where applicable), and on public roads.

Mazda’s triple award sweep had to taste extra sweet as Mazda only had three entries in a field of over fifty vehicle entries.

Best New Small Car categories (under $21K and over $21K), gives the Mazda3, in various forms, an impressive total of nine trophies over its ten year history. The Mazda6 is also a repeat winner, with previous category wins in 2009, 2005 and 2004, its introductory year. Both the new Mazda3 and Mazda6 are now SKYACTIV-equipped vehicles and offer outstanding fuel economy. This was also a good awards event for General Motors, the recipient of two AJAC trophies in very different vehicle categories. In addition to the Best New Pickup Award, the 2014 Corvette Stingray was also voted the Best New sports Performance Car. “This is a monumental step for the Chevrolet brand and the first all-new Corvette, since the first Corvette ... we couldn’t be prouder of it,” said Rob Assimakopoulus, GM Director of Marketing, during his acceptance speech. The other double-award winning manufacturer was Kia. The Best New Family Car under $30,000 award went to the revamped Kia Soul. A new and softer rendition of its offbeat fivedoor wagon-like design plus numerous other refinements helped the surprisingly practical Soul out-perform the competition. The new Kia Sorento notched an even more impressive victory, as it was achieved in a highly competitive light-luxury

Reader reaction to our posted speed limit poll, conducted with Insights West, was, well, speedy! No sooner had the paper hit the streets, revealing that 37 percent of those polled believe a higher than 100 km/h limit should be posted on our major highways, than the emails began flying. Yours truly expressed some surprise that a majority did not share that opinion and that 55 per cent believed speed limits should be left alone. While some readers disabused me of that notion an equal number agreed. Guenter Hoernig, of Penticton, asked: “What would you gain by, say, increasing the limits by 10 or

20 km/h? A half an hour earlier in Vancouver? Well, if you don't have that extra 30 minutes, perhaps you should take the plane. Janet McGarry warned: “NASCAR inspired highways will only lead to more fatalities.” Currently, 100 km/h is the maximum on most freeways, while 110 km/h is posted on the Coquihalla Highway and parts of the Okanagan Connector. Vernon resident Brian Romaine made an interesting suggestion: “My view is that the speed sign should have a range of speed, for example instead of say 100 km/h, make it 80 to 100 MAX. From a psychological point of view, the driver then sees the lower speed

and perhaps would have less of a fixation on the max speed limit. Speed limits should be assessed by the experts to be safe for that particular highway and not necessarily increased.” Variable speed limits are used throughout Europe and seem effective. The maximum limits are posted on overhead electronic signs, which change to reflect environmental conditions and congestion. It is a recognition that speed alone is not the major cause of road carnage but excessive speed combined with over-driving the weather/road conditions does kill. “If the roads are better engineered, cars are safer . . . . then why not increase the speeds to that “average

comfortable speed” that everyone is travelling at when the police are not looking? “The police can spend more time looking for bad drivers rather than speeding drivers and maybe the general driving public will then respect them more.” Laura Tomelin shared her driving philosophy: "Do not drink and drive, but drive at your own capabilities and get the hell out of the way of other drivers who take their own risks and feel comfortable doing so!"

predecessor, the original two-seater remains the one that most people think of when the topic of T-Birds comes up.

2. 1979 Datsun 280ZX: The 280ZX had

the misfortune of following one of the all-time greatest classic sports cars, the Datsun 240/260/280Z. And it also committed the cardinal sin in the eyes of sports car enthusiasts (although not necessarily in the eyes of the buying public) of being heavier and more luxurious. It was derided by the magazines of the time as being a flashy “discomobile,” and collectors are only now starting to realize the merits of the comfy and more grownup ZX.

3. 1971 Oldsmobile Toronado: The first generation Toronado that appeared in 1966 was a stylistic and engineering tour de force. Reminiscent of the great classic Cord 810 of 1936, it was a milestone car for GM. Hardly anyone remembers its successor, the second generation Toronado. Where the ’66 broke the mold, the ’71 was the mold for generic American luxury cars of the 1970s.

4. 1976 Jaguar XJS:

This one had the extreme misfortune of replacing one of the most beautiful cars of all time, the Jaguar E-Type. So naturally, people were predisposed to hate it when it came out. Other than initial quality control issues, which have become legendary, the XJS was neither a bad nor ugly car — quite the contrary. But for Jaguar, lightning just couldn’t strike twice: There was simply no way that the XJS could be as lovely as the E-Type.

5. 1974 Ford Mustang II: The early

1970s were dark times for the automobile. The Arab Oil Embargo of 1973 put the brakes on large displacement high performance engines. What was Ford to do about cars like the Mustang, whose reputation was built on V-8 performance? Replace it with a four-cylinder version based on the Pinto, of course. Although V-6s and V-8s were offered, it was the sting of the anemic four-banger that stuck with the II until Ford replaced it in 1979 with what would become the very good and very popular Fox body Mustang.

In the 2014 Kia Sorento LX, there is more to see than you would expect. Have you ever seen an ad featuring something you really want, only to find out when you get there the price doesn’t include this and that and you leave feeling deflated? Well, if it is a Sorento you’re going to see, then all the bells and whistles come standard.

Looks A very stylish design, Kia’s new “design language,” blending emotion and sophistication, is the thought behind this design. Swept back headlights with

a molded front bumper. Projector-style headlights and integrated turn signal lights on the side mirrors make this cross-over SUV stand out.

Interior The driver seat is an 8-way power adjustable with lumbar support and offers heating, and the rear seats are a 60/40 split folding. There is also an option to add a third row which would be a 50/50 split. There is a AM/ FM/CD/MP3 voice activated 6 speaker stereo with SiriusXM satellite radio (Includes three month trial) Bluetooth hands-free capabilities and Aux, USB input ports.

vehicle are vast, and here are some of the highlights. Dual advanced front airbags, dual front seat mounted side airbags, dual side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management , traction control system, hill assist, anti-whiplash front headrests, anti-lock braking system, automatic headlights, impact sensing auto door unlock, and back-up warning system all standard equipment.

Roof of snow Watched a guy labour for 20 minutes the other day scraping the ice from his windshield, side and rear windows. Then he jumped in his car and took off without paying any attention to the snow on the car roof. I figured that ten minutes into his journey the snow would slide down onto his windshield, obscuring his vision and thus putting him at risk of collision with some other innocent road user. Stupid.

Kia handles nicely around town maneuvering. Power was impressive and for a smaller lighter vehicle, the motor was well matched. Fuel economy numbers were good and, if driven sensibly, I am sure you could stretch these numbers to be even better. I was very surprised to see this many features offered as their standard package, great value for your money.

And you get a car! Fix Auto and Abbotsford Nissan are continuing its annual tradition of awarding a reconditioned car plus one year of insurance to a local resident in need. The endeavour was started eight years ago by Fix Auto, while Abbotsford Nissan came aboard in 2008. Nissan accepts nomination letters from the community on who should be chosen. Perhaps someone had a bad stroke of luck, an injury, or other unfortunate situation. The people considered usually have children and are struggling to make a proper life for their family. A car would be the one leg-up to put the person or family into a better position. Once the letters are received, a panel pores

A37

over them and decides on a lucky winner.

The BMW Art Car Collection started when French racing driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain invited his friend Alexander Calder to design his BMW Le Mans 24-hour race car in 1975 and so the BMW Art Car was born. Since then some of the greatest names in contemporary art have been added to the collection creating a wide range of artistic interpretations and there are now 17 BMW Art Cars in total.

Sesame Street Live, “Elmo Makes Music” It’s not just Santa who is coming to town this December, but Elmo, Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby too. The Broadway-quality production, Sesame Street Live, “Elmo Makes Music,” is stopping by the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre this weekend to perform four shows. After Abbotsford, Sesame Street Live will travel to Kelowna and Vancouver to finish off the Canadian tour before returning to the United States.

The show focuses on Jenny, a new music teacher on Sesame Street, who realizes after arriving in town that all of her musical instruments are missing. It’s up to the characters to come together and discover new ways of making music, using anything from trash cans to bottle caps.

importance of music in the world – it’s everywhere,” she says. “The show also teaches empathy to children. Since Jenny is missing her instruments, Elmo and the gang step up and help her make music. They understand this means a lot to Jenny and are happy to help a friend in need.”

Lauren Mueller, who works with Sesame Street Live, says the show is not only entertaining, but also educational. “Because the performance is so interactive, it makes learning fun and easy; singing and dancing in the aisles is strongly encouraged! We want children to understand the

While the appropriate age range is two to six years old, Mueller says parents and grandparents will have just as much fun grooving along to popular songs like “The Hustle” and “Rockin’ Robin.” Mueller attributes the success of Sesame Street Live, which is currently

in its 34th season, to the characters that bring the show to life in a way that the whole family can enjoy. “Some characters are curious and sweet and others are a little grouchy. Either way, kids connect with these personalities because they feel those things too,” says Mueller. “To me, the best part is seeing the little ones’ faces light up when their favourite characters come on stage at the beginning of the show — it’s magic!” Tickets start at $22.

Winter hair Tricks For f lat and lifeless locks

and be gentle on hair when brushing or washing and drying. EXPERIMENT WITH A NEW CUT. Fine or limp hair may benefit from a shorter, more layered haircut to improve volume and bounce. A stylist can recommend options that will fit with your face and hair goals.

INVEST IN HAIR ROLLERS. Hair rollers may seem old-fashioned, but they can create timeless, full hair and curls. Velcro or other non-heated rollers can be gentle on hair. Depending upon the size of the roller, hair can be full with bounce or show off more defined curls. Vary roller sizes to create a more interesting, dimensional style. A blast of hairspray while the rollers are in place will help set the style.

CONSIDER COLOURING YOUR HAIR. Permanent colour dyes may actually thicken your hair by expanding the cuticle layer in order to deposit colour into the shaft or disperse the existing pigments. This can result in hair that feels thicker or moves differently after the colouring process. Be sure to follow the recommended time between colouring treatments or you may end up doing more harm than good.

BE GENTLE WHEN STYLING. Frequent use of chemical styling products or heated appliances can weaken or damage the hair, causing it to break or fall out. Use heated styling appliances sparingly ™

USE A STYLING AID. For many people, washing and drying their hair is not enough to provide volume and lift. Volumizing mousse will coat the hair strands and give the appearance of thickness and lift. These products should be worked into the

base of the hair where it meets the scalp for best effects. Pomades and certain hair waxes and gels, may stiffen hair to keep styles in place.

TRY A PLUMPING PRODUCT WITH KERATIN. Keratin is a strong, fibrous material found in human hair, skin and nails. Coating hair with a keratin hair treatment can create a thicker layer of keratin to protect and moisturize the hair and help improve fullness.

FIND THE RIGHT VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO FOR YOUR HAIR. Many volumizing shampoos work by thoroughly cleansing hair to remove any product residue or excess oil that can weigh down hair. In the process, some may actually dry out hair, so it is important to test out different brands to find one that cleans but does not strip hair. Many of the popular drug store brands of shampoo will have a volumizing alternative, or you can consult with your hair stylist for a salon brand he or she recommends.

When cooler, crisper weather arrives, humidity levels wane and hair can appear flat and lifeless. As the temperatures outside continue to dip, people spend more time indoors with the heat turned on. Dry air can cause static electricity and flyaway hair. People who wear hats to protect their heads from chilly weather also may find their locks have flattened. Fortunately, there are a number of solutions which can improve fullness and body.

people to rely on comfort foods. Such foods are typically rich in carbohydrates, fats and sugars. Spending time outdoors in the sun each day can improve your mood and get you off of the couch.

The following are some effective ways to sail through the season without gaining weight.

FILL UP YOUR PLATE WITH THE RIGHT MIX OF FOODS. Don’t deny yourself when faced with a big holiday dinner. Rather, fill the plate with a good mix of foods. Devote more space to lean proteins, such as roasted turkey or lean ham. Devote much of the rest of your plate to roasted vegetables and whole grains. Take only small portions of highfat foods, such as bread stuffings.

DON’T SCRIMP AND SACRIFICE ALL OF THE TIME. Rather than metabolizing food on a daily basis, the body is geared to work over longer periods of time. That means you can balance out a highcalorie day by eating less food and/ or lighter fare on the days before and after those days when you anticipate overeating. FILL-UP BEFORE YOU GO OUT. If you are worried about high-calorie foods that are often served at holiday gatherings, eat a low-calorie snack that’s high in protein and fibre before going to the event. Hunger may cause you to overeat and fill up on the wrong kinds of foods. GET PLENTY OF SUNSHINE WHEN POSSIBLE. Lack of sunlight can attribute to winter blues, which may lead some

SKIP THE SPIRITS. Alcoholic beverages are loaded with empty calories. Limit yourself to one drink per day and save those calories for a piece of pie or a rich brownie. EXERCISE EVERY DAY. It can be easy to push exercise aside when you’re busy with holiday tasks. Aim for some sort of daily exercise, whether you decide to park further away from stores or take the stairs instead of the escalator.

Between the vines with Kathleen Rake

Invite a little summer to your Christmas dinner table With just two more Saturdays until the big day, you might want to consider which wine you’ll serve with Christmas dinner. If you cook up the turkey feast, with stuffing, gravy, myriad vegetables, cranberry sauce and that secret dish your mom always made, then turn to a wine that can work with many of the flavours and textures at your table. In my book, wines that work best are juicy and fruity, with light floral notes. I like a dry Riesling, Pinot Gris, or rosé, or a lighter red wine such as Gamay or Pinot Noir. If prime rib or lamb is your main dish, choose a wine that is big enough to stand up to it. You want something with good bones. I like Syrah, a Bordeaux- or Meritage-style blend or Malbec. If the wine is a little tannic for your palate, then give it some air beforehand. The proteins in the meat will help to soften the tannins and make it all come together nicely. Duck calls for Pinot Noir. Back to turkey dinner. I had a wine

recently that would work really well at the table: 2012 Viognier-Pinot Gris ($25/13.9% ABV) from Tyler Harlton Wines along the Bottleneck Drive in Summerland, B.C. This wine is juicy, fruity and has very light floral notes—much lighter than I expected considering the grapes in the blend. It has a nice body and brings a little bit of summer to the winter dinner table. In Abbotsford, Whatcom Wine & Spirits, Sumas Mountain Wines and the Signature Liquor Store all have wine pros on staff to help you choose just the right sipping companion to your meal. The local wineries, Lotusland Vineyards and Mt. Lehman Winery, will help you make choices, too. If you like, just send a note with your wine-and-food pairing question to kathleen@ betweenthevines.ca. I’m happy to help.

Holiday Appetizers

h

A great way to extend family social time and get a few more laughs in.

Massey, by Chef Jeff 62 restaurant Every year around this time, my mom would begin planning our family Christmas dinner. She was a very thorough planner when it came to food preparations and selections. Everything was always perfectly orchestrated. She was a big fan of canapes to start the evening. We would gather in the family room to enjoy the appetizers she prepared before we settled at the table. It was a great way to extend family social time and get a few more laughs in. This was also a way that my mom ensured she was able to spend some time with everyone and did not get stuck behind the stoves cooking. After appetizers we would take our seats in the dining room and share a fantastic and diverse dinner meal, which was mostly ready to go in the kitchen. Here is a canape that is always a favourite:

DUNGENESS CRAB CAKES: INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

• 1 lb fresh dungeness crab meat, all shells and excess moisture removed

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, reserving one cup of panko for breading. Using your hands, massage the bread crumbs into the crab meat, until when pressed into a ball, it will hold its shape. If it seems too wet, or won’t hold a shape, add a little more bread crumbs. Form into eight two ounce balls, toss in the remaining bread crumbs to coat thoroughly, and press into a suitably sized ring mould, or shape by hand. Sear on both sides in vegetable oil until golden brown and crispy. Garnish with very thinly sliced peppers.

• 2 tbsp finely chopped chives • 1 or 2 shallots, minced • 1 lemon zest and juice • 3 tbsp mayonnaise • 1 cup Japanese panko breadcrumbs, plus 1 cup for breading • salt and pepper to taste • 4 tbsp vegetable oil to sear

Canada performance over the summer, you’re not sure whether to congratulate him or console him. On one hand, the 25-year-old Abbotsford native was arguably the most consistent golfer on the tour, which is the third tier of men’s pro golf in North America behind the PGA Tour and the Web.com Tour. He led PGA Tour Canada in birdies made (151), notched five top-10 finishes, and missed just one cut in nine tourneys. On the other hand, despite being in contention on many a Sunday, Taylor wasn’t able to nail down a win –  his best finish was a tie for second. As a byproduct, he failed to notch a top-five finish on the PGA Tour Canada order of merit, which would have yielded a Web.com Tour card and exemptions into the first four events of the 2014 season. He ended up seventh overall with earnings of $36,715. “It was frustrating, but I guess it was a good frustration,” Taylor reasoned during an interview with The News this week. “There were honestly four or five tournaments –  and you obviously can’t win all of them – where I felt like I really had a chance to win on the last nine on the final day. Maybe some of them I got beaten a little bit, and others I made a couple careless bogeys that cost me not only maybe a win, but some places in the top five that cost me money Continued on A52

Heat light up Wild Ruthlessly efficient six-goal outburst Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The most impressive aspect of the Abbotsford Heat’s six-goal outburst on Wednesday evening was the ease with which they accomplished it. The Iowa Wild came in with a reputation as a reasonably sound defensive hockey club, but the Heat carved them up with the surgical precision of a Greg Maddux pitching performance – they needed just 26 shots to light up the Wild in a 6-2 victory.

All of the goals were of the high-quality, wellearned variety, with the exception of Markus Granlund’s semigreasy second-period marker, wherein Kane Lafranchise’s point shot bounced off the end boards directly to the rookie centre at the post for a tap-in. Other than that, the announced crowd of 1,409 was treated to open-net finishes off sweet passes (goals by Ben Street, Greg Nemisz and Brett Olson), topshelf snipes (Street’s

second goal of the game in the second period), and clinical two-onone execution (Michael Ferland from Olson). “Tonight was one of those nights where we had some puck savvy to us,” Heat head coach Troy Ward acknowledged. “There’s some kids that can finish.” The Heat, winners of three straight, boosted their record to 20-6-2 for an AHL-best 42 points. Their offensive numbers are equally impressive –  they’re fourth in the league in goals per game

MEI multi-sport star Tessa Ratzlaff is one of the authors of the Students of the Game blog at abbynews.com.

Blog features local high school athletes

The Abbotsford News frequently presents bonus content online at abbynews.com that doesn’t appear in the sports section, and our new “Students of the Game” blog is the latest example. For the past couple of months, we’ve been building a stable of writers for the blog, which features high school student-athletes from Abbotsford sharing their experiences and perspectives. Authors include Grade 12 students Tessa Ratzlaff of Mennonite Educational Institute and Tanner Friesen

of Robert Bateman Secondary, and Callum Pilgrim, who is in Grade 11 at W.J. Mouat Secondary. Recent entries include Ratzlaff’s look at the importance of the Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament, Friesen’s reflection on a season-ending football loss, and Pilgrim’s review of a busy volleyball/cross-country running season. Students of the Game blog posts can be found under the “Sports” tab at abbynews.com, or by typing “Students of the Game” into the search bar.

Football players suit up for Team B.C. Eight Abbotsford football players were selected for B.C. provincial teams which participated in the FBU National Championship, a series of prestigious youth football tournaments in the United States. The event features 64-team tourney brackets in the Grade 6, 7 and 8 age groups, and B.C. entered a squad in each competition. Local content included Terrel Jones on

the Grade 6 team, Trey Jones, Zach Langfield and Luke Szmutko on the Grade 7 squad, and Ezra Garcia-Landa, Tyson Reid, Sahil Sahota and Samwel Uko on the Grade 8 team. None of the three provincial teams survived the first weekend of play –  the Grade 6 and 7 squads both fell in the second round, while the Grade 8 team lost in the first round.

Taylor in the hunt for Web.com Tour exemptions

for the order of merit. “If you keep putting yourself in position, you’re obviously playing well, but it was frustrating I couldn’t win or place a little better. But I learned from it.”

Indeed, Taylor’s game isn’t displaying any hangover-like effects heading into the final stage of the Web.com Tour’s qualifying school this week. After a couple months off, he moved down to Phoenix at the start of

November to gear up for Q-School, rooming with a pair of fellow local pros – Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin, a Web. com Tour regular the past two years who has status again next season, and Mission’s Kevin Stinson.

Taylor played a couple of events on the All-American Gateway Tour, an Arizona-based tourney circuit, and notched a victory and a runner-up finish. “I felt good – I’ve been practicing a lot with every part of my game,”

teed at least some status on the Web.com Tour next season, but his level of access depends on how high he finishes. The Q-School winner is exempt for the entire 2014 Web.com Tour season; the rest of the

he said. “I played pretty consistent, and hopefully it keeps going this week.” Taylor earned a bye into the final stage of Q-School by virtue of his seventh-place overall finish on PGA Tour Canada. He’s guaran-

top 10 are exempt until the third periodic reorder (12 tournaments); the top 45 are exempt until the second periodic re-order (eight tournaments); and players after 45th only get conditional status, meaning they’ll get into events on an alternating basis. The Q-School finale is an epic six-round marathon, beginning this Thursday at PGA West’s TPC Stadium and Nicklaus courses in La Quinta, Calif. “I’ve never done anything like that competitively, so it’ll be a bit of a grind,” noted Taylor, who made the drive out to La Quinta a couple times over the past month to play the PGA West courses. “I’ve played them both enough that I’m comfortable with them.”

Goals came fast and furious

Regular toll rates For the last year, as construction along Highway 1 has been wrapping up, drivers who registered early have been eligible for low introductory toll rates. In January, with extra lanes open west of the Port Mann Bridge and drivers able to save even more time, the low introductory rates will be replaced with regular toll rates. For drivers already paying the regular toll rates, there is no change. Tolls will stay the same.

The Wild twice seized the lead, but the hosts rallied to take a 3-2 advantage into the first intermission. “I was kind of boisterous after the first couple (Wild goals) –  we really had some bad breakdowns,” Ward said. “It was like, ‘Here we go, it’s a 6-5 shootout, potentially one of these games.’ “But then I thought we settled in a little bit.” ICE CHIPS: • Granlund extended his points streak to 10 games. It’s the AHL’s longest active streak, and the third-longest in the league this season. •  The Heat and Wild clashed again on Thursday evening, but that result was unavailable at press time. Visit the Heat Central page at abbynews.com for a recap. • On Thursday morning, the Calgary Flames stunned hockey observers by firing general manager Jay Feaster and assistant GM John Weisbrod. Feaster was officially the Heat’s GM as well, though Weisbrod and special assistant Craig Conroy have handled most of Abbotsford’s day-to-day hockey operations over the past couple seasons. • The Heat hit the road next week for a threegame trip, beginning with Wednesday and Friday games vs. the Utica Comets, the Vancouver Canucks affiliate.

But it isn’t all work! I am also passionate about old cars, well, almost anything with a motor and wheels. I am currently restoring a ‘66 Impala SS. The family is less enthusiastic about this hobby when there is work to be done but loves to ride in the 70 Dart or on the collector Harley on a sunny weekend. For a Real Estate professional committed to working with you, call anytime. 

At this time of the year many people ask me ‘When is the best time to sell?’ Generally the most active market is in the spring. So as you plan towards selling in early to mid 2014, I would encourage you to start thinking about getting your place ‘showhome’ ready. Look online for ideas to either update or declutter. During the winter months attend to the list of small things you’ve been meaning to get to. Plus, it can be a very good idea to be proactive about the condition of unknown or unfamiliar things about your home, by having a pre-list home inspection done. That way there will be less things getting in the way of a timely and less hassle sale of your most valuable asset. Feel free to contact me anytime, with more questions you may have about the upcoming Real Estate year and put my over 22 years of experience to work for you.

Well folks, I originally started selling farms and ranches  many years ago, in 1979, and was lucky to be joined by my son for the last 14 years.  We do all kinds of farms!  We know them and it is our love to see agriculture continue, wether it is in the valley or the 100 Mile House Area.  Having lived on a farm our whole life with a strong University background in agriculture we get the job done.  We offer  the best of advertising, pictorial promotions, websites, and overseas promotions.  We try to keep in touch with the latest municipal, provincial, and federal changes, which will encourage the new farmer starting out.

I married Ingrid Smith in 1994 and we committed to making Abbotsford our family home. My career continued in sales and management for the next twenty years.

FOXCROFT Ruth June 12, 1922 ~ Nov. 29, 2013

Ruth, 91 years old, passed away in Stockton on Friday the 29th of November, 2013. She will be greatly missed by her only daughter, Kari, who brought her to live near her in Stockton, Ca. from Abbotsford, Canada four years ago, after the passing of her dear husband Dave. She also leaves behind her beloved grandson Clifford, granddaughter Helen and step grandson Matt. Ruthie, as she was known to her closest friends, had a feisty personality who loved socializing and listening to all kinds of music. She led an adventurous life migrating from her home province, Alberta (in which her brother, Jackie, survives her in Banff) via the treacherous train route through the Canadian Rockies to work in the ship yards in Victoria, Vancouver Island during WWII. She later became one of the few women cab drivers in Vancouver before settling in rural Surrey. During retirement she and Dave had the opportunity to enjoy not only annual winter trips south through the western States in their RV but also several vacations to England and her heritage country of Scotland. The family will return her remains in the summer to be laid to rest next to her husband Dave, in Abbotsford.

TOWNSEND; Charles Nov. 12, 1932 - Dec. 2, 2013

Charles Clifford Townsend passed away peacefully at Mission Memorial Hospital on Dec. 2, 2013. He was born in Boston, Mass., Nov. 12, 1932. Charlie was a free spirit and spent a large portion of his life riding the rails and travelling coast to coast across both Canada and the USA, eventually putting down roots in Mission. He loved nature and a simple life. His wit and fiesty personality will be missed by many. A Celebration of Life will be held at Mission Community Services Society on Tuesday, December 17 at 2:00 PM.

Irene was a child of the prairies, born on the family farm near Viscount Saskatchewan on September 9, 1920. After high school she attended Normal School in Saskatoon, and then taught for eleven years in one room country schools. In 1952 she moved to Abbotsford where she taught in the Abbotsford School District for the next twenty five years. Irene loved teaching; her vocation brought her deep joy and much satisfaction. In 1952 she married Bill Tracey, and they raised their three children in Abbotsford. In 1991 they moved to Westbank to be near their children and grandchildren. Left to remember and miss her deeply are her daughters Beverley (Karen), Alison (Don), her son Doug (Mary), her grandchildren Luke, Charis, William, Stephanie, David, and five great grandchildren. Also left to mourn her passing are her sisters Freda and Frances, sisters in law Kathleen and Jenny, brother in law Ron, her old friends and the new friends she made in her assisted living residence.
