hilliwack homeowners should have all received 2014 property assessments by now, documents that tell us what our properties are worth. But residents who have been in the community for a long time may take for granted the real “worth” of where they live. The city is surrounded by stunning mountains, two world-class recreational rivers and farmland as far as the eye can see. In Chilliwack, you can find a crowd . . . yet it’s rarely crowded. You can eat gourmet cuisine and meet the farmer who grows your food. You can climb a mountain in the morning then grab a frappuccino before you go sturgeon fishing in the afternoon The city has all the benefits of small-town and big-city life rolled into one. There is an argument to be made that you could do no better for quality of life and affordability of real estate. Where else in the Lower Mainland can you buy a single-family home with a yard for $200,000? President of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) Jesse Hildebrandt finds it easy to sell Chilliwack given its beauty, proximity to Vancouver and relatively low home prices. “Thirty per cent of our sales have been coming from out-of-town buyers,” he said. Hildebrandt said he had some recent clients See AFFORDABLE, Page 7

ormer Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Chuck Strahl is facing criticism for lobbying the government on behalf of Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline while serving as head of the watchdog for Canada’s spy agency. The revelation he is working for Enbridge comes 18 months after he said he “won’t lobby governments.” Strahl registered the company he formed after leaving office in 2011, Chuck Strahl Consulting Inc., with Chuck Strahl the B.C. office of the registrar of lobbyists on Dec. 6, 2013. The client is listed as “Northern Gateway Pipelines L.P.,” a company he has consulted for since 2011. Under the category of “public office background” on his application, it says “The Lobbyist is not a former public office holder.” The issue for critics is that after Strahl retired from politics, he was appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper as chair of the Canadian Security Intelligence Services Review Committee (SIRC), the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) See STRAHL, Page 7

Prison slashing earns inmate 13 mths BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

former Kent Institution inmate has been sentenced to 13 more months of jail for slashing another inmate last spring. On April 30, 2013, as a group of Kent prisoners were returning from the gym to their cells, Darvin Argueta ran up behind another inmate and slashed his face, back and neck with a homemade weapon. A report of the incident states corrections officers at the Agassiz maximum security prison thought the men were play fighting until they saw the

man was bleeding. He was later airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with a cut to his neck and back that narrowly missed his carotid artery and a deep slash from his right eye to the back of his head. “The cut had penetrated his cheek so the inside of his mouth was visible from the outside,” Crown Counsel Rebecca Beeny said, reading from a report of the incident. The damage had been inflicted by one of two homemade weapons found on the scene: an orange-coloured toothbrush with a metal blade melted into it and a plastic spoon with a razor

Charged for stealing furniture from lobby

A prolific Chilliwack offender will serve five months and 23 days in jail after stealing furniture from an apartment common area last month. Cole Amey was arrested after police identified him in a surveillance video as one of two men who broke into a Margaret Avenue apartment building and stole lobby furniture. The items were recovered after police executed a search warrant at Amey’s residence in the 45000 block of Yale Road on Dec. 28. Amey, 28, pleaded guilty to possessing break-and-enter instruments, breaking and entering with intent to commit an offence, mischief and breach of an undertaking or recognizance. He was sentenced to five months and 23 days in jail. A 25-year-old woman, Danielle Baptiste, arrested with Amey was charged with possession of stolen property and has been released with a court date of Jan. 21. Police are still looking for the second man who stole the furniture with Amey.

Two people were taken to hospital after their car sheared off a telephone pole on Prest Road last week. The white sedan went off the road and slammed into the pole near 1st Avenue and Prest Road Friday morning just after 8 a.m. A man and woman were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Emergency personnel on the scene said the cause of the single-vehicle accident is still unclear.

We’ve got bragging rights when it comes to weather BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

L

iving in Chilliwack is looking pretty ideal as extreme weather conditions plague most of Canada, threatening power outages, grounding planes and bringing wind chills that dip below -30 C. According to a weather report issued

by Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada, monthly mean temperatures were above normal for every month of 2013, except for December. It was also the warmest year since 2004, with mean temperatures for the year 1.19 C above normal. There were 24 high temperature records and no low temperature records.

H1N1 making a comeback BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

F

raser Health is urging residents to get their flu shots after several severe cases of H1N1 influenza have been reported across the health region. Dr. Michelle Murti, a medical health officer for Fraser Health, said 30 people were admitted to intensive care units with H1N1 within the last two weeks. Many have required respiratory support in the form of incubation or ventilation. According to media reports, it is suspected that one person in B.C. may have died from the flu strain. While there have been no cases of H1N1 hospitalization at Chilliwack General Hospital, it does not mean there have been no infections in the area. Due to the level of care

William MacDonald agreed Argueta’s early guilty plea was to his credit. “By pleading guilty, you are eliminating the possibility that you might actually be found not guilty at some point in the future,” MacDonald said, “and I have to give you credit for that when arriving at an appropriate sentence.” But the judge said Argueta’s criminal record, while recent, was made up of serious offences,

including breaking and entering, forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and three robberies.

Mom wasn’t going to ‘race’ BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

mber and Andrew Hayden of Chilliwack celebrated the new year with the birth of a healthy baby boy—a big one. The city’s New Year’s Baby came in at nine pounds, one ounce (4124 grams). Andrew John Hayden was born at 3:20 a.m. on Jan. 1 at Chilliwack General Hospital. The couple is happy the baby is so healthy, especially since Amber had a difficult pregnancy. “I just wanted him out,” she said. They also had health concerns about Andrew Hayden in utero, but everything worked out. “We are blessed that he is perfectly healthy.” Amber said her labour kicked off when she was hit with really bad back pain close to 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve.

hilliwack residents will be able to give the provincial government their opinion on safety and speed limits on rural highways in B.C. at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel on Jan. 16. Through online engagement and open houses, the B.C. government is seeking public input for their Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review. According to a Ministry of Transportation press release, the public is being asked to provide input on speed limits on longer stretches of rural highways, safe and efficient movement of slow vehicles, wildlife-related crashes and whether current winter tire requirements appropriately address safety. The public input portion of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review will be considered together with the technical review, which goes over new technology, highway design and similar initiates in other jurisdictions. Recommendations from the review and a strategy for implementation are expected to be ready in spring 2014, said the release. Other public forum locations include Kamloops, Kelowna, Dawson Creek, Prince George, Vancouver, Cranbrook and Nanaimo. The Chilliwack forum will take place at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel, 45920 First Ave., on Jan. 16 from 5 to 8 p.m. ◗ For more information on the review or to share feedback online, visit www.gov.bc. ca/safetyandspeedreview.

civilian oversight committee. In this role, Strahl has access to all of Canada’s secrets, with the exception of cabinet confidences. And as the online news site Vancouver Observer reported in November, CSIS has been spying on anti-oil sands activists and co-ordinating with the National Energy Board and oil companies, such as Enbridge. “Canadians were already concerned about the federal government using CSIS and the Canada Revenue Agency to target environmental groups and charities—now we learn the Chair of CSIS’ civilian oversight committee is a paid pipeline lobbyist,” New Democratic Party MP Nathan Cullen said in a statement. “This just further undermines people’s confidence in the fairness of the pipeline approval process.” Strahl replaced disgraced previous SIRC chair Arthur Porter in 2012. National Post columnist Brian Hutchinson called the Strahl appointment an odd one, “pure patronage” but at least free of scandal. Strahl told Hutchinson he had “a system of ‘double make-sure’ to protect himself and the public from conflicts of interest and questions around ethics.” Strahl said at the time he would continue with his consultancy work but that he would not lobby governments. “In the event a potential problem does arise,” Hutchinson wrote, “he’ll ‘call up [Canada’s] ethics commissioner and consult with her. I even called her when this appointment first came up.” In response to the issues raised over potential conflict, Strahl reiterated to the Times via email Tuesday that he checked with the ethics commissioner before he took the SIRC appointment to confirm what he was doing adhered to the Conflict of Interest Act.

He promised not lobby governments “I re-checked with her again yesterday, and she re-confirmed that in all ways, I have adhered to the letter and intent of the Act(s),” Strahl wrote. “For those with other agendas, this answer will not suffice. But no answer will.” NDP house leader Cullen said it “should be common sense that someone on the federal payroll, like Mr. Strahl, shouldn’t lobby for a pipeline seeking federal government approval.” As a former minister, Strahl is prohibited from federal lobbying but loopholes in the act mean he can lobby the provincial government. The target identified for lobbying is Rich Coleman, B.C.’s Minister of Natural Gas Development. In a follow-up with Hutchinson this week, Strahl said the issue is all about pipeline politics. He criticized the Vancouver Observer as being aggressively “anti-pipeline” and he slammed Cullen for making political hay of the matter. The topic has been the source of much discussion online and on social media in recent days. Since the story broke, a protest has been planned in front of MP Mark Strahl’s Vedder Road constituency office Thursday at noon. The protest was initiated by local resident David Hersanko who has used Twitter to urge people to come out. When asked what Mark Strahl’s office had to do with Chuck Strahl’s lobbying for Enbridge, Hersanko said via Twitter “it has a special odour, Mark is my representative he needs to make a move.”

HOLIDAYS CHIPPING FOR CHARITY

AFFORDABLE, from page 1 who moved to Chilliwack from Steveston. “They couldn’t believe what you could get for the money,” he said. “They had 1,000 square feet in Steveston. They sold it for $380,000, came to Garrison Crossing and bought a 5,000-square-foot home with a coach house for $500,000. “They were just amazed and they feel so welcome.” Hildebrandt said while some locals may take for granted the quality of life and home prices, out-of-towners are in shock at the value. As with most of the province, Chilliwack homeowners will see very little if any change in 2014 assessments over 2013. “Most homeowners in the Fraser Valley will see modest changes in the minus five per cent to plus five per cent range,” said Raj Sandhu, deputy assessor for BC Assessment.

Most will see little assessment change The total assessment roll dollar value increased from $11.5 billion last year to $11.6 billion this year. New construction accounted for approximately $194 million of that, according to Sandhu. The average single family dwelling is assessed at $326,000 in Chilliwack, a number that Sandhu said can be misleading as there is such a huge range of prices. In its press release, BC Assessment uses a $400,000 home in 2014 as an example of a “typical” home up in price from $394,000 last year. The “typical” strata apartment example was down from $188,000 to $183,000, and strata townhouses stayed the same at $275,000.

It’s just Economics 101

hy do we mount challenges to almost every industrial proposal and particularly resource industry proposals that comes forward? Yes it is important to protect our environment. However, in my opinion, this protection should be realistic, practical and achieve essential levels of environmental protection without unnecessarily reducing our living standards. In Canada and particularly in British Columbia we enjoy a very high standard of living. Yes, we gripe about almost everything, but the reality is we are doing very well. Our health care system is really very good. We went to our granddaughter’s Christmas concert at our local high school and the talent and enthusiasm exhibited by those young people was extraordinary. Our electricity and water services are more than adequate. We have decent law enforcement and, while a lot of us think it could be better, it is really quite good. Our roads are good and when you drive around and look at the average homes in our communities they are pretty nice. All of this costs money. Where does it come from? Believe me; you can’t pay for all of these things on minimum wage jobs. In British Columbia in particular we depend on generating wealth with our natural resources. Logging, mining, farming, oil and gas and fisheries

JACK CARRADICE

Be Our Guest are our primary wealth producers. Tourism, information technology, movie production and similar industries are important but when you look at the real dollars that support our high standard of living they come from our basic industries. Who really benefits from the activities of the big companies involved in our basic industries? We do. Who actually owns these companies? In large part we do. Nearly all of the major natural resource companies are publicly traded on the stock market. Who buys this stock and who benefits from any profits made by these companies? A major portion of the stock in these companies is held by our pension funds, The Canada Pension Plan, The BC Investment Management Corporation that manages all public sector pensions including BC teachers, The Ontario Teachers Pension Plan and many many more all hold significant ownership positions in these companies and benefit significantly from this ownership. Their profits are a major contributor towards building and sustaining our pension plans which pay our pen-

sions. In addition, shares in these companies are held by many people who hold mutual funds as well as individual investors. Consequently in addition to the jobs these companies provide and the taxes and royalties they pay to government they are the foundation of many people’s savings and our pension plans. Yes we want a well-managed natural environment but we also need a good social environment and a healthy economic environment. There is an old saying that there are only so many dollars in a barrel of oil or, for that matter, in a log. How do you want to spend it? Fritter a large portion away on meaningless studies, excessive environmental constraints and legal fees or on jobs, schools, hospitals, social services and our savings and pension plans? We all need to give this issue some very serious thought. ◗ Born in 1932 and raised in Vancouver, Jack Carradice joined the BC Forest Service in 1951.

new year brings a fresh start for everyone, even politicians. Apparently Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is looking for better times ahead as he has already filed his papers for this year’s municipal elections. Now there’s a guy who obviously believes that the turning of the calendar constitutes a fresh start for everybody. Who knows when it comes to the beleaguered mayor of Canada’s largest city? Many would have wagered he would not have lasted this long so all bets are off. Luckily that circus carries on daily thousands of miles away but we in the Fraser Valley also will go to the polls to elect municipal representatives this year. The most accountable, most reachable, many would say, the most important level of government (not to mention lowest paid with no retirement benefits) will be decided by local residents come November. Although the Toronto mayor jumped the gun, as usual, to grab the spotlight this week, those who guide us municipally will soon have to make a decision on whether to continue to serve their constituents to the best of their ability or make room for some fresh faces. We’re sure the lobbying for people to jump into the limelight that is civic politics has already begun in coffee shops and living rooms throughout the city and we encourage all to participate in the democratic process that will help write the chapter called 2014 for the Fraser Valley. However, unlike Ford, do your homework, take your time and consider all the factors involved in contributing to your community.

Boundary adjustment will mean steady flow of trucks

Editor: Re: Sasquatch Park proposed boundary adjustment. Did anyone notice the Dec. 19 legal notice in the Agassiz-Harrison Observer informing the public that the Seabird Island First Nation (SIFN) plans to remove 12 hectares of land from Sasquatch Provincial Park? Nice that the notice went in over the Christmas holiday season when everyone is too busy to pay attention to such matters. The SIFN representative I tried to contact at the Tamihi Logging phone number has not replied to my inquiry. However, a little sleuthing revealed that FVRD and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs were well aware of the proposal. It appears from the published maps that SIFN wishes to pull the road allowance out of park’s jurisdiction from just north of Trout Lake to three-quarters of the way between Hicks and Deer Lake then swing south towards Moss Lake along a less used road. The purpose of the “boundary adjustment” is to allow for the use of existing access roads so that logging equipment can develop and harvest timber in an area south of Sasquatch Park. Now isn’t that going to work well for the 275,000 people who annually like to go up to Hicks and Deer Lake to camp and hike? Ever met one of those huge treeharvesting machines or even a loaded logging truck on a gravel road? I have and it’s not fun. And logging

low-lying land near the Fraser River. Berms will be built supposedly to prevent any major seepage into the Fraser River. This will be a very large facility which will be able to receive PCBs and other highly toxic materials from across B.C. and, perhaps beyond. By calling the meeting on the third of December “public,” the mayor claims that they have met their obligation to hold a “public meeting.” This was far from a “public meeting.” Was proper advance notification given to the community? Were First Nations’ authorities given notice, since the site is on First Nation historic land? I know something of the proper procedures that a municipal council should follow, as I spent six years on municipal council in Niagara Falls, Ont. We experienced several similiar events then and what has occurred here in Chilliwack would not have been be permitted. There should have been advance notice and local community groups should have been permitted to ask questions and to learn all of the facts. To say that the council represents the people is not good enough. Council needs to educate the people. It is no wonder that voter turnout here in Chilliwack in the last municipal vote was only 13 per cent. It seems that 87 per cent of the people do not have confidence in their local council. This needs to change. Dick Harrington Chilliwack

Doggy poop bags don’t cost much

Editor: This letter is directed at the inconsiderate, uncivic-minded persons of Chilliwack who do not pick up their dogs feces from streets and sidewalks. In particular, I speak of the pavement on Airport Road which, when I walked my dog a few days ago, was in a disgraceful state with dog feces. You know who you are. How about your New Year’s Resolution being about picking up after your dog/dogs? After all one can buy poop bags at a dollar store for only about $1.25 for about 40 bags. J. Stander Chilliwack

So much for secure super mail boxes

Editor: Is anyone else frustrated with Canada Post? The super boxes on Patterson Road were broken into at the end of November and we are still waiting to have them fixed. It means an 18-mile round-trip to get our mail. There appears to be no way of contacting Canada Post to see when they will be back in service. In all the years we had rural delivery there was never a problem, so much for secure super boxes. Marg Frank Chilliwack

Faith Today

Can’t win the race carrying debt

BY EMMANUEL OLAOLUWA Redeemed Christian Church

P

salms 37 : 21 says “The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous showeth mercy and giveth.” One way of identifying the righteous is by their attitude towards repaying what they borrowed. As stated in the scripture above, it is a wicked person that borrows and refuses to pay. Many people are guilty of this. Did you borrow something from an individual or an organization and have no intention of returning it? Or have you converted the properties of others kept in your care into your own? Then you are judged by the one

who rules the Earth as wicked. Don’t you know that debt is a weight? Counselling, medical treatment will not give a lasting solution, instead repent, and pay the debt and that weight will be lifted off your shoulder. Anyone who intends to participate in a race and expects to win and is carrying a load will just be kidding or fooling himself/herself. The Bible says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us Hebrew 12:1.” If you want your race to be smooth, make every effort to clear your debts. Jesus did not owe anyone, as he boldly

You Crown the Year

declared in scripture. The prince of this world came and found nothing in him. As much as you can, try and live within your means. Because godliness with contentment is great gain. Do not overstretch your financial commitments. This has brought pain to many resulting in grievous consequences. Be wise, avoid heavy burden on your life because of indebtedness. What is your experience and opinion on this matter? Feel free to share your thoughts by emailing me, Emmanuel Olaoluwa, at info@rccgckc.org. ◗ Emmanuel Olaoluwa pastors The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Christ The King Chapel (Possibility Hall).

SUCCESS

O

ne of the twists of running a British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) franchise is that the more success you have one year, the more it can hurt the team on the ice the next. That’s because the young men skating for the Chilliwack Chiefs only have a few years of junior hockey eligibility before they move on in their lives. Some will leave the sport, others will go to different leagues, but many will move on to higher education. And the goal is a full-ride scholarship to a U.S. university, something unavailable to Western Hockey League players. Part of the reason this season’s Chiefs are struggling—currently sitting with a record of 10-27-1-3—is because of the success they had last year on and off the ice, according to team president Glen Ringdal.

Chilliwack Chiefs may not be lighting up the league this season, but still proud of off-ice achievements “It’s traditional that we would lose six or seven maybe a year to scholarships,” he said. “Last year we lost 10 to scholarship and four more aged out. . . . So we had a big mountain to climb to try to rebuild the team.” One of those players lost was Mitch Gillam, arguably the best goalie in the BCHL, who earned a scholarship to Cornell University. (He earned some notoriety when he scored a goal in his collegiate debut in November.) “Our good success last year—and we are very proud of that achievement—came back to hurt us this year.” While the post-Christmas period started well with two wins against the Surrey Eagles, the Chiefs lost last Friday to the Langley Rivermen 4-3 in overtime in a game they could

have, maybe should have, won. They were then shut out by the Prince George Spruce Kings 3-0 in a game that saw one of the earliest winning goals ever in a hockey game. Not only did the Spruce Kings score on Spencer Tremblay 16 seconds into the game, they scored again 10 seconds later. Coach Harvey Smyl yanked Tremblay, and back-up Josh Halpenny played the remaining 59 minutes and 44 seconds, stopping 39 of 40 shots and earning second star honours. The losses Ringdal can take, but the team’s long losing streak earlier in the season was hard. “We were disappointed when we lost 11 games in a row,” he said. “That’s beyond the pale.” So the 2013/2014 season is a restructuring year for the Chiefs and,

with a trade deadline looming, the work has already begun. On Sunday, the team traded fifth-leading scoring defenceman Cooper Rush to Prince George. The six-foot-seven Rush had seven goals and 21 assists in 39 games this season. He was traded for Caleb Thompson, a six-foot, 185-pound defensive defenceman from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who has two goals and three assists in 28 games. In a mid-season interview with the Times Monday, Ringdal said the team liked what they saw from Thompson Sunday against Prince George. “We were very pleased with his play,” Ringdal said. Then on Monday, the team traded team captain

UFV join Chiefs on the same team

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

aught up in the action of a fast-paced, hard-hitting Chilliwack Chiefs game, fans can be forgiven for forgetting the skaters on the ice are mostly schoolaged teenagers. Many attend secondary school but many others take college courses in between practices and games. “Our league and our team exists for two reasons,” Chiefs president Glen Ringdal told the Times in an interview Monday. “One of them is to play entertaining hockey. The other is to develop young men to the point where they can earn scholarships.” As part of that educational mandate, the Chiefs have partnered with the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) on a deal that will, in part, give Chief players who have graduated high school an expanded opportunity to attend classes and programs at UFV. Another element of the agreement will see a special ticket offer to students, faculty, staff and alumni of UFV at a deal and returns a portion of the proceeds to a new UFVChiefs Education Scholarship Fund. The partnership was formalized with an on-ice signing of a

Memorandum of Agreement by Ringdal and UFV president Mark Evered prior to the Chiefs’ game at Prospera Centre on Jan. 3. “It is a pleasure to be working with the Chiefs, an organization that has demonstrated in a number of ways its commitment to education and community development,” Evered said in a press release. “Our partnership will support not only the further education of young hockey players, but also the development of some unique hands-on training and research opportunities for UFV students and faculty.” Among the various community commitments the team has is the Adopt-A-School and Reading with The Chiefs programs aimed at elementary and high schools. This new deal extends the team’s connection to higher education. “This is an important development in the long-term strategy of the Chiefs to be fully integrated into the education experience in Chilliwack,” Ringdal said. Another part of the deal will see UFV students working with the Chiefs’ various department—trainers, coaches, video and marketing—as part of their curriculum. “We see many areas of potential co-operation and mutual benefit,” Ringdal said.

Plenty of trade action

It’s go time for Sardis Falcons senior boys basketball team

CHIEFS, from page 12

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he quad-A senior boys high school basketball season gets under way in earnest this month, and the Sardis Falcons have already experienced a couple highs and lows on their quest for provincial gold in March. On Saturday, the Falcons, who were ranked seventh in the province as of Dec. 19, kicked off the new year by upsetting number-two-ranked Gleaneagle secondary 71-68 in an exhibition game in Coquitlam. “It was a real good test for us,” Sardis coach Kyle Graves told the Times. “It shows that we can win those close games.” Hayden Lejuene led the Sardis offence with 25 points. Eric Rogers put up 21 points, and Cam Servatius and Colin Kellington contributed

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

As part of restructuring moves, the Chilliwack Chiefs traded team captain Austin Plevy Monday to the Brooks Bandits of the AJHL for Mason Boh. have scheduled a press conference on Jan. 13 at Prospera Centre at which the team has two “major announcements.” One has to do with the team’s 25th anniversary next year and the second has to do with the naming rights for Prospera Centre. The 10-year

agreement with Prospera is set to end this year, but Ringdal wouldn’t say if that will be renewed or if a new sponsor is to be announced. ◗ The Chiefs next home game is Jan. 11 against the Langley Rivermen.

Jamboree big success Champions of the 2013 Chilliwack Peewee Jamboree were the Cowichan Valley T1 Capitals, Platinum/Tier 1; Campbell River T2 Tyees, Gold/Tier 2; Chilliwack A3 Bruins, Silver/Tier 3; and Langley C2 Phantoms, Bronze/Tier 4. Les Lindhout, Peewee Jamboree chair, said the weekend was a success, with many

Jock scraps teams saying they would return next year. “It was great to see the stands full in the rinks,” he said.

Great exposure for curling rink Young curlers in B.C. got national exposure last month, after final games were broadcast on Sportsnet from the Chilliwack Curling Club. “It was a big deal for Chilliwack, but it’s also a big deal for Curl BC, as this is the first time they broadcast for us,” said Wendi Prinse, host committee chair of the 2014 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships.

and leading scorer Austin Plevy to the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for 18-year-old Mason Boh and future considerations. Boh is a five-foot-10-inch, 170-pound for ward from Highlands Ranch, Colorado. He has seven points (two goals, five assists) so far this season in 30 games for the Bandits. Plevy had been leading the Chiefs with 46 points (18 goals, 28 assists) in 39 games played. The second leading scorer for the Chiefs is defenceman Carter Cochrane with 34 points. Despite the tough season and the fact that coach Harvey Smyl was working on even more trades early this week, Ringdal hasn’t given up on making the playoffs. With 17 games remaining, four of those are against Surrey, the team they are chasing and the team they beat on Dec. 28 and 29. “We are not out of it,” he said. He also made a promise about next season. ”I can guarantee next year we will be a better team.” In other news, the Chiefs

another 11 and 10 respectively. On Tuesday, however, the Sardis boys fell to the ninth-ranked W.J. Mouat Hawks in their second league game of the season. Lejeune once again led the Falcons offence with 23 points, while Kellington put up 19. The only bright spot of the game, according to coach Graves, was the team’s 15 three-pointers. Grayden Northey led the way in that category, with four three-pointers for 12 points. The two January games put the Falcons’ record at 15-2. The team had suffered its first defeat of the season just before the Christmas break at the hands of number-three-ranked Sir Winston Churchill, but the same tournament saw Sardis take down number-five-ranked Burnaby South 68-46. The Falcons’ next regular season game is at home against Yale secondary on Monday at 8:25 p.m. Next weekend, the team heads to Abbotsford collegiate for the Panthers’ prestigious Snowball Classic Tournament, starting Jan. 16. The Falcons’ toughest test, however, will come when they take on defending provincial champions Walnut Grove secondary Jan. 27 in league play.

Local band Chilled Clarity hopes to see more support from the Chilliwack community for their second single “Pick Me Up.”

Battle hardened Not willing to sell out, local ‘active rock’ band Chilled Clarity comes out stronger than ever BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

F

uelled by disappointment and anger after losing a battle of the bands contest last year, a trio of young Chilliwack rockers regrouped and put out a song that ended up getting them exactly what they were vying for. In November 2012, local band Chilled Clarity duked it out against other up-and-coming talents in an actual boxing ring for a chance to win one professionally recorded song and radio-play courtesy of AMP Records and 99.3 The Fox in a contest called Band Fight. “We felt that we had an amazing freaking take at this competition; we had the most votes, we brought all our fans but we still lost,” said Chilled Clarity frontman, Bronsen Rasmussen. “It wasn’t about having the most votes. There was a [certain] reason that we didn’t win that we didn’t know about—that we didn’t sell out about.” Reeling from the loss of their “big break,” which the band believes was more or less related to their lack of conformity to a certain image—a “hipster” image to be exact—they churned out

elive the Vancouver Olympics with 14 Gold: Images from the 2010 Olympics, a solo photo exhibition by Chilliwack Progress photojournalist Jenna Hauck. Hauck will share her winter Olympic experience with Chilliwack and bring her photos to the Chilliwack Museum, Jan. 18 to Feb. 27. Fittingly, the exhibition will be on display during the 2014 Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia, Feb. 7 to 23. “Photographing the 2010 Olympics

was the most exhilarating assignment of my career,” Hauck says. “Since I was shooting for our entire Black Press newspaper chain, the majority of my images never made it to the pages of the Progress. This show, 14 Gold, is Chilliwack’s chance to finally see what I experienced in Vancouver and Whistler.” Although Hauck has had her work on display in numerous group exhibitions, this is her first solo photo show. The opening reception for 14 Gold:

Images from the 2010 Olympics is Jan. 18 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Chilliwack Museum, upstairs in the Chambers Gallery (45820 Spadina Ave.). Admission to the opening reception is free.

Two Chilliwack actors, Darcy Knopp and Dayna Thomas, who graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley theatre department, are on stage at the Langley Playhouse in the play Bus Stop by William Inge running Jan. 23 to Feb. 22. Set in a roadside diner during a snowstorm, this play portrays the experiences of people struggling to connect. The unlikely ensemble of characters in this comedy are faced with making serious decisions in their lives. Bus Stop was first staged in 1955—a year perched on the edge between the perceived age of innocence and the new world of the 60s which was about to unfold.

New website for service club Kiwanis staying with the times BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

Expiry: February 9, 2014. Offer available only at The UPS Store #244. 8 – 6014 Vedder Rd Chilliwack, BC V2R 5P5 T: 604.858.9938 store244@theupsstore.ca 6300292

A

longtime service club has joined the digital age and revamped its online presence to better its reach members and the public. The Kiwanis Clubs of Chilliwack and Sardis have upgraded their website, making it more user-friendly, and opened up Twitter and Facebook accounts that will provide live feeds of events, programs and club information. “Social media, online presence, it really does matter. That’s how people find information now,” said Michelle Savich, online co-ordinator for the Kiwani Clubs of Chilliwack and Sardis. “Word of mouth, yes it’s good, and human networking, it’s never going to be replaced, but when people want information they want it now and it’s in their phone.” As an online teacher, Savich brought concepts like screen time, click time and scroll time together to improve the website from its predecessor, which was “not very well organized.” “The new website has gotten a lot of positive reviews . . . if you compare the two, it’s streamlined, it’s clean, it’s simple, it’s basic,” she said. The website will have information on where the clubs meet, what they do, different programs, scholarships and a calendar of events and special occasions.

Visit the new Kiwanis website at www.chwksardiskiwanis.org or find them on their recently launched Facebook or Twitter feeds. Facebook and Twitter feeds will be used to send out information to the masses and share content in real time from events. Updates will be sent regularly by a group of dedicated volunteers. Kiwanis focuses mainly on services for families and children, and Savich said the launch of their new web platforms will help engage the public and increase awareness of programs for people who would benefit from them. The official launch of the new website and social media sites took place on Dec. 17, after three-and-a-half months of work. “We’re looking for new members and getting more of the community involved in what we do because Kiwanis is about serv-

ing the children in the community,” Savich said. The Kiwanis Club of Chilliwack has been providing services in the area since 1961, and operates the well-known Super Reader program in local schools. The Sardis club, established in 1979, also offers a number of different programs, including Operation Red Nose during the holiday season. Kiwanis is an international non-profit organization, with more than 13,000 clubs in 90 countries. ◗ Visit the new Kiwanis website at www. chwksardiskiwanis.org, “like” them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/chilliwacksardiskiwanis and follow them on Twitter at @KiwanisChwk.

Sally Ann & Kiwanis join forces to raise funds A

new Kiwanis and Chilliwack Salvation Army fundraiser will see participants experience a tiny hint of the challenges faced by the homeless during the chilly winter months. On Feb. 22, the Kiwanis Clubs of Sardis and Chilliwack and the Salvation Army will team up to host the first local edition of the Coldest Night of the Year—an evening walk aimed at raising money for the hungry, homeless and hurting.

Coldest Night of the Year event set for Feb. 22 Since 2011, the event has raised $2.5 million in other communities across Canada. With its goal of bringing hope, help and education to those on the margins of their cities and towns, the fundraiser was a perfect fit for the Salvation Army, according to Major Larry Farley. “Anything that brings attention to

the marginalized, we’re behind 100 per cent,” he said. The goal is the raise $25,000 in Chilliwack this year. The money is desperately needed, Farley said. “It’s always a challenge,” he said. “The needs are great and the finances aren’t always available. We do our very best with what we have to work

with.” Walkers of all ages and abilities can participate, with routes two, five and 10 kilometres long. The event will start with registration at the Salvation Army Church (46420 Brooks Ave.) at 4 p.m., with an opening ceremony at 5 p.m. and the walk itself taking off at 5:15 p.m. The longer, five- and 10-kilometre
