Fraud attempt prompts warning

■ A B RIDGE O VER

Eric Welsh The Progress Darren Neilson said his big mistake was being too nice and wanting to help someone. That’s how he became an almostvictim of a well-concocted scam. “Being too kind-hearted might have been my deficit,” he said Thursday as he followed an email trail back to where it all began. Neilson’s ordeal, one that almost cost him $5,000 and could potentially have had criminal ramifications, started Jan. 4 with an innocent email. “Interested In Earning $500 Weekly From Home,” he read as he opened the message. “Write Back For More Details.” For many people, that might set off alarm bells. But Neilson is an Internet entrepreneur, and in his world it’s not uncommon to get perfectly legitimate offers like this, right out of the blue. With experience as an Internet systems administrator and a keen eye for phishing emails and scam artists, he claims to usually know when something’s off. “He wasn’t asking for any wrong info, just basics like my name, phone number and address,” Neilson recalled. “Nothing about credit cards or bank info. This one felt safe.” “Tell me more,” Neilson wrote back. Two days later, He got an email from Rogers Smith, a man identifying himself as ‘an international business man.’ Continued: SCAM/ p4

Info sessions on Kinder Morgan pipeline coming Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack will be one of several Fraser Valley communities holding public information sessions on how to participate in the National Energy Board (NEB) review of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline proposal. Hosted by the PIPE UP Network and ForestEthics Advocacy, the public session in Chilliwack is set for 7-9 p.m. on February 6 at UFV Chilliwack. The public have to navigate a tricky application process, and all participants are required to prove that they are either

“directly affected” by the proposed project or possess relevant expertise. In order to participate as an intervenor or to submit a letter of comment, all applicants must be approved by the NEB. “Residents in Chilliwack and other communities within the Fraser Valley Regional District have expressed concerns about the possibility of a route through the Cheam Lake Wetlands. Many are interested in making comments,” said Michael Hale, a Chilliwack resident. Applications to participate from groups and individuals will be only accepted by the NEB

until February 12, following the formal project application, which was filed in December 2013. “The pipeline route is also near several schools in the Lower Mainland,” said Hale. “I’m sure that the NEB would want to hear the views of these residents, so the intent of these sessions is to make it easier for people to voice their opinions.” Kinder Morgan is proposing to build a new export pipeline to carry diluted bitumen to offshore markets. The proposal is to ship an additional 590,000 barrels of bitumen through B.C. Local PIPE UP member Lynn Perrin said: “Everyone in

Southwestern BC is potentially affected by this pipeline proposal, yet it is much more difficult for residents to speak about how it affects them. “Residents can no longer make oral statements as they did in the review of SE2 10 years ago or in the more recent review of the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal.” The Chilliwack session is on February 6, at the University of the Fraser Valley Chilliwack room A1354, at 45190 Caen Ave. For more contact Michael Hale at sunfolk@gmail.com, or 604799-3391

Covenant won’t protect river, say waste plant critics Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The question of what role the provincial government will play in signing off on the proposed waste recycling plant that was unanimously approved by Chilliwack city council last month is still swirling. Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley is part of an ad hoc coalition of about 20 groups still trying to fight the proposed location for the facility, in the Cattermole Lands by the Fraser River. “Not on the banks of the Fraser River” is the mantra that keeps getting repeated. The rezoning application by Aevitas Inc. is sitting at third reading at Chilliwack city hall. Fourth and final reading is pending registration of a restrictive covenant and signing of the Good Neighbour Agreement. But the risk to the river estu-

ary, if there were a major spill, cannot be removed by the existence of a restrictive covenant, say opponents. “What we’re trying to figure out is how the province will sign off on this,” said Friends of the CRV spokesman Glen Thompson. “At this point it doesn’t look like an environment assessment will be required as one doesn’t appear to be in the queue.” Thompson and coalition volunteers have been banging on doors on nearby Chilliwack Mountain in the weeks since the rezoning hearing on Dec. 3 in an effort to gauge and raise awareness. Many had not heard about the waste recycling facility proposal. Several First Nations, sport fishing and river stewardship groups have come forward in opposition to the riverside location, and the coalition numbers more than 120,000 in membership. “It seems the thresholds are

not high enough for a provincial assessment,” said Thompson. “If you process a certain tonnage (of certain materials) per day, the site would require an environmental assessment process.” One issue is the covenant, which they feel is inadequate. “What they’re attempting to do is good. But we don’t think the covenant will achieve the level of protection that they’ve agreed to. “What happens if there’s a toxic spill in the river or on the road outside the berm?” The covenant does include protocols for emergency evacuation in the case of a high-water alert, as well as prescribing that all activities must be contained indoors. So precisely how will the province and Ministry of Environment sign of f on the project? Authorization for a hazardous waste transfer facility is required under the Environmental

Management Act and the Hazardous Waste Regulation, according to city staff. Before being issued a waste transfer permit, the applicant would have to spell out and define containment requirements as well as monitoring and reporting processes. The assessment will be in the form of a technical review, said staff. Aevitas Inc., which has recycling facilities in Alberta and Ontario, has listed mercury and PCBs as among the waste materials it intends to either recycle or transfer at the site. Many opponents have stated it is the plant’s proximity to the river that is vexing and worrisome given the handling and transfer of hazardous waste next to one of the most productive salmon rivers in the world. They are not opposed to Aevitas or hazardous waste recycling and procession.

The opposition has suggested city officials had a desire to “fasttrack” the waste plant rezoning, but there is no evidence of this. City officials hosted a duly convened public meeting Dec. 3 to hear comments on Aevitas’ application to rezone a 1.78-ha portion of property from a M4 (Heavy Industrial) Zone to a M6 (Special Industrial) Zone to facilitate the construction of a waste recycling and transfer facility. The public was invited to offer feedback on the rezoning at that time. At the end of the hearing, council members, satisfied with the land-use, passed second and third reading, citing the track record of the applicant, the comprehensive plans submitted, and the safeguards to be put in place through both the restrictive covenant and the Ministry of Environment approval process. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

‘Coldest Night’ hopes to warm homeless and hungry Teacher

ruling may be appealed, premier says

Katie Bartel The Progress In the face of a bad day, most have comforts in place. But for Chilliwack’s less fortunate, they often don’t. They don’t have cupboards full of food, or warm beds to sleep in, or shoulders to cry on. They’re alone. But, on Feb. 22, the Salvation Army and Kiwanis Clubs of Chilliwack are partnering for the Coldest Night of the Year Walk to show Chilliwack’s hungry, homeless and hurting that they’re not, in fact, alone. Coldest Night of the Year is a walk to help raise funds for the Chilliwack Salvation Army’s 16-bed shelter and soup kitchen. It’s also a tool meant to open the eyes of the community to the lives of those living on the streets. “People who are homeless, they’re living on the street all year round, and they’re living out in that cold,” said Kyle Belton, director of shelter and outreach for Chilliwack Salvation Army. “And the thought is to get out there when it’s cold and to just, in a very small way, feel how it is to be out there in that cold and experiencing that. “And maybe, as you’re walking, you might see people who are actually homeless and start to get an idea of what that looks like in your community too,” said Belton. While this year’s walk is the inaugural one for Chilliwack, it’s not new elsewhere. Coldest Night was born in 2011 by Blue Sea Philanthropy, an Ontario-based public foundation that works towards raising funds for charities that assist the hungry,

homeless and hurting. It’s always held on the last Saturday in February. Last year it raised well over $1 million in partnership with 40 charities across Canada, and more than 5,000 walkers and volunteers. Chilliwack’s Coldest Night of the Year Walk is on Feb. 22 starting and finishing at the Salvation Army Church on Brooks Ave. There are 2 km, 5 km, and 10 km routes to choose from. The goal for the walk is to raise

$25,000; so far, it’s raised close to $8,000. To reach this goal, organizers hope to attract at least 20 teams with a goal of raising $2,000 per team. They also hope to attract several individual walkers as well. “Everything we do, there’s a financial stipulation to it and it can be pretty costly,” said Belton. “And $25,000 will help to go a long way with some of our programs.” Every walker who raises either $75 (for youth, 17 and under) or

$150 (for adults) will be given a Coldest Night toque. Registration starts at 4 p.m., and the walk begins at 5:15 p.m. Between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. a light, warm meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers. The route closes at 8 p.m. For more information, or to register, visit the website www.coldestnightoftheyear.org/location/ chilliwack kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

The B.C. government is considering an appeal of a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that rejects legislation restricting teacher bargaining and assesses a penalty of $2 million plus court costs. “It doesn’t reflect government’s view of the case and the facts in the case,” Premier Christy Clark told a Kamloops radio station Tuesday. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said he is “disappointed” by the ruling, and ministry staff will study it before deciding on a possible appeal. Fassbender said he disagrees with the judge’s conclusion that the government tried to provoke a strike by reintroducing provisions that had been struck down by the same judge. “What we need to do is to review the judge’s ruling in detail to see what the implications are, but clearly my message to school districts, to parents, is it’s business as usual in our schools,” Fassbender said.

Gas pipeline set to be replaced in sections: Spectra Jennifer Feinberg

they dig, she said. Millions are spent on existing maintenance and pipeline integrity. “Our own people work and live in these communities,” said Metz, adding they were not expecting to hear questions about the Manitoba explosion at this week’s open house. “We’re always happy to address any questions, concerns or fears.” No road closures are expected because they will bore under the ground to slide replacement parts in. They’ve been meeting with landowners along the right of way to discuss the project, and with City of Chilliwack regarding traffic changes that may be required. “People might see some equipment being moved when it starts and an open trench,” she said, adding there could be construction at night. The pipeline, originally constructed in 1957, will keep the same capacity, diameter and location. It’s an upgrade to a better quality steel, based on regulatory requirements and increased density of Chilliwack. To find out more about the project, contact Joanne Metz of Spectra Energy at 250-373-7042 or jmetz@spectraenergy.com

The Progress You might notice the glow of nighttime construction this spring while driving along Luckakuck Way. Spectra Energy is about to embark on a natural gas pipeline replacement project starting near the railway tracks that cross Luckakuck Way, west to a point near Chilliwack Mall. Spectra officials hosted an open house at Cottonwood Mall Wednesday night, to hear from local businesses or shoppers and to answer any niggling questions. Spectra expects to replace about 600 metres of 30” pipeline in 2014, and they want to do it with a minimum of delays and disruption. Timeline is somewhere between April and August, depending on the schedule chosen by the as yet unknown contractor, said community relations spokesperson Joanne Metz. “We want to make sure we’ve talked to people and are accessible,” she said. Some people in Chilliwack may be extra concerned right now because of the natural gas pipeline explosion that rocked Otterburne, Manitoba. The incident forced evacuations and power outages in the wake of a massive fireball that filled the sky

last Saturday in the community outside Winnipeg. “People need to know there is no liquid in our pipeline,” said Metz, and therefore there can be

no spills in the other sense. “Oil pipelines are different.” The flow of natural gas will be shut down with valves during the planned construction period, and

monitored carefully as they work on the pipeline section by section. The biggest cause of natural gas pipeline incidents occur when people don’t call before

the oil patch,” said Don Banasky, operations manager at CopCan Contracting Ltd. and FallTech Logging in Nanaimo and vicepresident of the TLA. Banasky said there are openings for road building, driller-blaster, grader and excavator operators in his operations, and some employees at remote oil and gas developments are anxious to work closer to home. The BCBC report holds out hope for a B.C. government that has seen its muchadvertised jobs plan fizzle in the past two years. “Following essentially no net employment growth in 2013, we see the B.C. job market recovering in the coming year,” the report says. “Growing exports, higher nonresidential construction outlays and some increase in consumer spending will translate into greater demand for working and more hiring by B.C. businesses.” The repor t forecasts that two liquefied natural gas processing plants and pipelines to supply them will begin in 2015.

from the Business Council of B.C. says. “The U.S. economy is gaining ground, the Eurozone is out of recession, and Asia, par ticularly China, continues to expand at a robust clip,” said executive vice president Jock Finlayson as he released the BCBC economic outlook report Tuesday. “The weakening of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar will also help lift B.C.’s export of goods and ser vices to the U.S., prompt more U.S. travellers to come to B.C., and serve as a headwind to cross-border shopping.” The repor t forecasts improvement in U.S. demand for lumber and other building materials, wood pulp and even natural gas, which has fallen to historic lows with a surge of shale gas production around North America. Recover y of the struggling B.C. coastal forest industr y was echoed at last week’s T r uck Loggers’ Association convention. “I’ve got a desk covered with resumes of people who work in

B.C., Alberta aim to increase ‘energy literacy’ Tom Fletcher

Looking good! Have a better look online! www.theprogress.com

Black Press A B.C.-Alberta government working group on energy development has issued its first report, recommending efforts to “increase the public’s energy literacy on oil transportation, production and impacts on daily life.” The group was set up by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford last summer, after they agreed to co-operate on ways to increase oil and gas development and export. Headed by deputy ministers from both provinces, the working group released its first report this week. The report notes a “disconnect between public perception and the reality” of the importance of oil and gas to the Canadian economy. The industry is the largest contributor to Canada’s balance of trade, and investment of $55 billion in new capital projects in 2012 alone. It also records that Canada is losing an estimated $50 million a day in potential revenue due to lack of access to oil customers outside the United States, and acknowledges that without additional pipeline capacity, crude oil will increasingly be shipped by rail. To respond to “misinformation on numerous fronts” on technol-

ogy, economic benefits, environmental issues and regulatory practices, the report suggests increased effort in communities, First Nations and schools. One program cited as an example is the Canadian Geographic Energy IQ Program, a partnership between the magazine and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers to “provide an interactive educational experience for students in the classroom on the prevalence of energy.” Redford and Clark agreed last year to support B.C.’s five con-

ditions for new heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the Pacific coast, and Alberta’s proposal for a national energy strategy to improve access to markets for Canadian energy. B.C.’s conditions include “world class” spill prevention on land and at sea, which the report describes as an evolving target. The report paints a rosy picture of oil spill response off the coast, despite a study done for the B.C. government last year that found little capacity to recover crude oil spilled off the North Coast.

Government still assessing teacher ruling TEACHER from page 3 government’s effort to keep class size and special needs support off the bargaining table with teachers, and ordered the government to pay $2 million in damages to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. In a ruling released Monday, Justice Susan Griffin said the B.C. government’s replacement legislation, passed in 2011, is as unconstitutional as the 2002 law called Bill 28 that removed class size and special needs support from union working conditions. “The court concluded that the government did not negotiate in good faith with the union after the Bill 28 decision,” Griffin wrote. “One of the problems was that the government representatives were preoccupied with another strategy. Their strategy was to put such pressure on the union that it would provoke a strike by the union. The government representatives thought this would give government the opportunity to gain political support for

imposing legislation on the union.” The ruling strikes down the portions of the new legislation that have not already

expired. BCTF president Jim Iker said the ruling returns contract language that was in place in 2002, and he expects

that the province’s 60 school districts will have to rehire teachers and special needs assistants to reduce class size.

Classroom fight not over A court decision on Monday awarding the B.C. Teachers Federation $2 million in damages, and ordering a return to class size and composition provisions in a teachers’ contract from almost 15 years ago, is almost certain to lead to political strife. Some estimates suggest the cost of the judgment to taxpayers could total $1 billion. If that indeed is the case, the provincial government is almost certain to appeal, as Premier Christy Clark hinted on Tuesday. The ruling by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Susan Griffin speculated (because there is no hard evidence on the record, due to cabinet confidentiality) that the provincial government deliberately stalled on renegotiating the class size and composition provisions with the BCTF in 2011. Griffin was the author of an earlier court ruling calling for new legislation within a year. In her ruling, she stated “(Negotiators’) strategy was to put such pressure on the union that it would provoke a strike by the union. The government representatives thought this would give government the opportunity to gain political support for imposing legislation on the union.” Nothing else in the lengthy ruling, other than a suggestion that cabinet documents back up this assertion, offers any proof. The class size and composition provisions were inserted in a contract imposed by the former NDP government on school boards. They had resisted, fearing that the rigid guidelines would make it very difficult to properly staff classrooms. In fact, what happened is that classrooms which were one student over the limit were sometimes split in two, or the extra student was transported to another school. While this certainly benefited teachers, its impact on students was questionable. There is no doubt that if classes are too large, it has an impact on how students learn. And the number of special needs students in a classroom must be at a manageable level. But hard and fast limits, imposed by a judge, will be costly to taxpayers, and have limited benefit for students. ~ Black Press

L OCALLY G LOBAL

Changing cargo loads should bring a rail rethink The recent coal train derailment in Burnaby, the explosive derailment of a train carr ying crude oil in New Brunswick, and the horrific derailment and explosion of a train carrying crude oil in Lac Megantic, Quebec, that killed 47 people last summer have turned the spotlight on the level of safety, or lack thereof, in the transportation of hazardous goods. But in the shadow of these accidents in barely six months, the oil industry is looking at quadrupling the amount of oil sands crude shipped by rail. Huge investments are being made in infrastructure, loading terminals and rolling stock, especially state-of-the-art heated and coiled tank cars that can transport thick, raw bitumen without the need of a diluent. By contrast, bitumen transported by pipeline needs

to be mixed with a concentrate to make it fluid enough to flow through the pipes. Without the need for diluent when shipped by rail, more bitumen can fill the cars. However, last September a 153page report from the emergency response division of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Margaret Administration EVANS (NOAA) weighed in on the debate about transporting Alberta’s bitumen crude by rail, tanker truck, and pipeline, warning of environmental risks, regulatory loopholes and hazardous unknowns in the event of a spill. The report stated that it is not a question of whether a spill will occur but whether communities are pre-

pared for one when it does happen. People in Chilliwack have a right to be concerned about hazards and preparedness in the event of a train spill, despite the fact that the city’s track record is pretty stellar. Some 40 trains pass through this city each day but that number is expected to rise as more energy resources are shipped to Pacific destinations and more goods are imported for onward shipment to eastern Canada. According to the Transportation Safety Board, of all the rail networks in the world, Canada’s system is the third largest and transports the fourth largest volume of goods. Annually, railways move 70 per cent of Canada’s surface goods (including 40 per cent of its exports) and carry 70 million people. In 2011, 1,023 railway accidents

were reported with freight trains accounting for 71 per cent of all trains in accidents in that year. That number was actually down 5 per cent from 1,076 in 2010 and 15 per cent lower than the average of 1,l98 between 2006 and 2010. NOAA’s report expressed concern about shipping spills that could occur off their Washington State or Alaskan coastlines in the event Enbridge gets the go-ahead to ship bitumen via pipeline to Kitimat and onward by tanker to Asian ports. It also underlined issues about the Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta to Texas. While U.S. President Obama dilly-dallies on approval of the Keystone pipeline, oil industry executives aren’t hanging around holding their collective breath.

needs to get product to market and trains are right now their go-to choice. In 2009 only 500 train cars were loaded with crude. In 2013 about 140,000 carloads of crude were shipped. At a rate of 600 barrels/car, that works out to 230,000 barrels of bitumen crude per day. And in the future are bigger terminals that could expand rail shipments five-fold. People argue about the level of risk (rail vs pipeline) but one thing is for sure. Neither form of transport can boast a zero track record. While Chilliwack has been pretty much untouched by a serious rail spill, staying ahead of the curve is prudent with a clearer knowledge of the kind of goods transported and a review of speeds in built-up areas.

Court victory for teachers won’t go far Re: Court rejects B.C. class size; Province to pay teachers $2 million (Chilliwack Progress, Jan. 29). With regards to the recent award to the BCTF of $2 million, and the right now of teachers to negotiate their classroom sizes, and most importantly the recent resignation of one of our local teachers due to class size, I want my fellow residents of Chilliwack/Sardis to realize just how insignificant the award and the new “right” are to teachers in today’s classroom. As the parent of a disabled student who was able to benefit from the wonderful Learning Center at CSS that then comprised of three exceptional support staff (Larry Weiss, Scott Bridge and Doug Fraser), the parent of a gifted student, and being a teacher myself, I can appreciate the efforts teachers and staff go to every day to guide our children. As a teacher myself, now retired, I know that the average classroom consists of close to thirty students (and sometimes more) at times.

These would include your average, exceptional and struggling student, your disabled student (anything from dyslexia to autism to fetal alcohol syndrome, etc. now without much classroom support or TAs) and a couple of non-English speaking international students, and the usual class clowns who monopolize the teacher’s attention. The teacher is expected to follow a government assigned curriculum and hope to pass these students by the end of the course. On top of that class time, they have other duties, supervising, coaching, mentoring, marking, planning, etc. The Learning Center at CSS now comprises of one full-time staff member - the super-talented Shirley Dorish who now does the job that three staff members once did before her arrival. Some excellent programs, like the APPLE program for students who were “borderline” in needing a little bit of additional help to succeed, have been cancelled and other much needed groups like the

Special Needs Committee that was once headed by Mary-Ann Smirle is now no more. There are times when I find the fighting between the BCTF and the government over teacher’s wages/ rights to be very childish and unproductive. However, if you really know your school and your teachers, and especially your kids, you know they deserve much more than they are getting. They spend more time with our children, raising them to be what they will be in the future, than we do ourselves. I would much rather see my tax dollars go to improving the situation in the classroom than, say, spending a lot of tax money bringing in non-English foreign students who may be paying tons of money to the school district but who are just an added burden to the already stretched teacher’s time. Andrea Dunphy

Manure on fields causes concern Across the Fraser Valley, farmers can be seen spreading manure on fields, despite clear guidelines and ‘advisories’ from the Ministry of Agriculture against spreading during the

winter months. Manure spreading at times when grasses and cover crops are dormant greatly increases the risk of contaminating groundwater with nitrogen and bacteria.  Shockingly, there is

no formal regulation or oversight of manure management, and no penalties for those who contravene the guidelines. Chilliwack’s famously pure water is now chlorinated. Although the exact

source of the contamination remains unclear, it is imperative that we work together to protect our water. Flagrant pollution in our own backyard needs to stop.   Jennifer Wilson, MD, FRCPC

Minister of veterans affairs should resign Just when I thought when some of the political stuff was nearly on the back burner, such as the senate scandal and pipeline debates, there is a time when I am ashamed to be a Canadian. Our veterans served Canada in the Second World War and several wars since. Closing veterans’ offices

is a travesty in our country. The older vets need help. Many of them are not mobile anymore. Now our young men join our armed forces, returned from these conflicts with all kinds of disorders and are not getting the help they need; note the number of suicides in the last couple of

months. The minister of veteran affairs snubs a scheduled meeting. This is a complete lack of compassion on his part. He apologized. The prime minster also said the minister apologized, and left it at that. The minister of veterans affairs should resign

as soon as possible; he does not have the interests of the veterans in his heart. I am ashamed to be a Canadian, we should all be raising hell, and the Canadian Legion should have a petition calling for the ministers resignation.

to be so condescending and rude about Neil Young’s involvement in the anti-oilsands controversy made me respond. How does he decide which experts’ findings on the environment he judges to be the truth –

the whole truth? May I make a suggestion: Fletcher should move to Fort McMurray. Enjoy the scenery! And after looking at his picture, who is calling whom an old man? Heidi Bumann Surrey

An Abbotsford man has been charged with several child pornography offences following an investigation by local police. Andrew Douglas Felling, 32, has been charged with making/ distributing child porn, accessing child porn, distributing and possessing child porn, and sexual interference. Const. Ian MacDonald of the Abbotsford Police Depar tment (APD) said the charges were the result of “proactive work� by a local investigator, who was searching online for images of child sexual abuse. He was able to trace the IP address of certain images to a residence in Abbotsford, and a search warrant

was executed at that home on Dec. 6. Felling was inside when police arrived, MacDonald said. He said APD major crime investigators gathered evidence that Felling had sexually interfered with a youth, and he was arrested. He was charged the

following day with sexual interference of a youth under the age of 16. The other charges were laid in early January. APD investigators are now asking for anyone with information about the investigation to come forward. They

of this year,“ Facio said. “Phase one of the project will improve the street scape along a portion Esplanade Avenue by widening sidewalks, installing new street furniture and improving on-street parking which allows visitors and residents to enjoy the amenities and all the natural beauty that Harrison Hot Springs offers.” The plan was unveiled at the beginning of 2013, as a means to improve the image of Harrison, and increase enjoyment for tourists along Esplanade. In addition to the tourism benefits, the improvements are expected to be a boost for the businesses in the area. Key changes mentioned in the unveiling last year involved a narrowing of the roadway to allow for growth of user-friendly sidewalk space, increasing pedestrian flow and allowing for “contemplative areas” for benches and trees. It would also allow for restaurants and cafes to expand their business onto the sidewalk with chairs and tables. Landscaping, con-

crete pavers similar to the ones in Spirit Square, public art, bike racks, benches and wayfinding signs were all a part of the conceptual redesign. The improvements will also address current drainage issues. The total cost quoted last February was $515,000. The remainder of the project was expected to be paid for with gas tax funds. “The Resor t Municipality Initiative allows resort communities like Harrison Hot Springs to improve tourism infrastructure and continue to grow our tourism economy,” Facio said. “It’s so important for resort-oriented municipalities like Harrison Hot Springs have the resources to develop their local tourism-related infrastructure to support regional tourism economies,” said Laurie Throness, MLA for Chilliwack Hope. “The Resort Municipality Initiative provides targeted funding for just such a purpose and I look forward to following the progress of this year’s projects in the village.”

Plea to help injured kitten brings $12,000 An 11-week-old abandoned kitten who required surgery for a serious eye injury is on the mend and recovering in a BC SPCA foster home, thanks to generous animal lovers in Chilliwack and surrounding communities. Donations totalling more than $12,000 poured in after the Chilliwack SPCA asked for support to help Angel and other animals in need of urgent medical care at the shelter. “We are overwhelmed and so grateful to everyone who responded so generously to help,” says Ivanna Ferris, manager of the Chilliwack SPCA. “Angel had her eye surgery on Jan. 22, and is doing really well in her foster home. Several wonderful families have offered to adopt her so we are just reviewing the applications to find the best match for her.” Ferris notes that the donations sent in to the

Ashley Giampa, youth parent support worker with Chilliwack Community Services Young Parent Program, is excited to move her office over to the Neighbourhood Learning Centre, which is located inside Chilliwack secondary school, to help better support young parents, like 17-year-old Mary Fischer, pictured with her daughter Eden.

Centre. A daycare was also provided inside a converted classroom at the Ed Centre, in partnership with the YMCA daycare, at no cost to the parents. But when YMCA ended the partnership last year, due to financial reasons, and the in-school daycare closed at the end of June, Giampa heavily pushed for the Young Parent Program to be moved over to the NLC.

“It was a no-brainer,” she says. The Neighbourhood Learning Centre is also home to Fraser Valley Distance Education, Family Place, Better Beginnings, as well as offices for United Way, YMCA, Ministry of Children and Family Development and Xyolhemeylh Child and Family Services – all potential supports for young parents.

When Mary Fischer became a teenaged mom last year, everything changed. She lost friends, she faced eyes of judgement at every corner she turned, she had to switch schools from Chilliwack secondary to the Ed Centre for childcare. “I get a lot of dirty looks,” says Fischer, who has since returned to CSS. “Teachers look at you funny, students talk behind your back,” or worse, they outright call her degrading names. “When I bring my daughter to school, they say things like, ‘Why is she bringing her baby to school? She’s promoting teen pregnancy.’” The judgement hurts. Fischer didn’t dream of becoming a teen mom, and while she wishes she would have waited, she has no regrets. “I love [my daughter] to death,” she says. Next week, when the Young Parent Program, formerly housed out of the Education Centre and Chilliwack Community Services, moves into the Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC), which is located inside CSS, the hope is that those judgements and hardships will soon dissipate. “If you talk to any of my clients, they’ll tell you how much they love their children, but I don’t think any of them would say this is the best thing that’s happened to them,” says Ashley Giampa, youth parent support worker. “I don’t think any of my teen moms are promoting teen pregnancy; they just want to go to school.” And the Young Parent Program is there to help them. The Young Parent Program is a service, under the umbrella of Chilliwack Community Services, that provides necessary supports to teen parents, including connecting them with a medical team, counseling, prenatal classes, vitamins, life skills, food and milk vouchers, exchanges for baby clothes and gear, and more. For years it’s had offices at both Chilliwack Community Services and the Education

Big bucks for literacy Literacy initiatives in Chilliwack just got a whole lot stronger. Chilliwack Learning Community Society was awarded $14,447 for its part in the annual Vancouver Sun and Province Raise-a-Reader campaign. “Which is much more than we’ve ever received before,” said Debbie Denault, literacy outreach coordinator with Chilliwack Learning Community Society. Denault credits the community’s involvement, including several businesses, schools, first responders, local media, and individuals. “Your contribution really made a difference,” she said. Members of the Chilliwack

Learning Community Society’s early family literacy task group will be deciding how to split those funds for programming in February. Raise-a-Reader is an annual campaign that exists to empower children and families with the tools necessary to improve their reading skills. Last year, over a four hour period, with communities from Chilliwack to Bowen Island participating, $580,000 was raised. All funds raised go to family literacy programs. This year’s Raise-a-Reader campaign is Sept. 24.

Durango is yet another example of what Chrysler is doing right. I enjoyed my entire time with it and so did the rest of the family. Zack Spencer

Question

One bad Durango in a good way The 2014 Dodge Durango test truck was the perfect Christmas treat. This is the perfect kind of vehicle to have when you need to cart around extra kids and family from events like skating parties to Christmas dinners to anything else that needs getting done over the festive season. With three rows of seats and seating for six or seven passengers, the Durango is a large comfortable vehicle for any large family or a family of four that needs to take extra people to soccer or hockey practice. The Durango tester was the top of line Citadel model with a beautiful two-tine interior, large polished wheels and classy looking grille. It was not fitted with winter tires but we had no skiing plans, plus all Durango models come with AWD as standard equipment. Looks I can’t remember the last time a large SUV turned heads but this model had passersby, friends, and family all taking notice. Several neighbours commented on the stylish “racetrack” rear light bar that has migrated from the Dodge Dart and Charger sedans to this big SUV for 2014. Because of standard AWD and other packaging changes, the starting price is higher than direct competitors, the Ford Explorer or Nissan Pathfinder. Both those vehicles have a base model that starts around $30,000, the Durango, in contrast, starts at $39,995 and tops out at $51,995. This Citadel model, with options, is over $60,000. The base model comes nicely equipped with 18-inch wheels, keyless entry and

Bluetooth streaming to name a few. Dodge believes the $43,995 Limited model will be the volume seller thanks to a backup camera with sensors, heated seats over the first two rows and a higher level of interior trim.

take extra passengers regularly, I would opt for the less expensive bench seat that allows room for 7 people inside.

Drive The big update for 2014 is the introduction of an I can’t remember 8-speed automatic transmission to help limit the Inside the last time a large amount of fuel this big Updates to the interior SUV turned heads rig uses.

I tried my hand at this but never its legs on the open road that number really mastered it. The biggest selling would have been much better. Handling point for the Durango is the amount of space it offers over three rows for 6 or 7 passengers. My youngest son loved climbing into the third row and could actually stretch out. I even tried it out and can report that adults have plenty of room in any seat. The Citadel model came equipped with a stunning two-tone interior featuring black carpets and tan seats. This contrast won over my wife who wouldn’t have looked twice at a Durango but after the first week she admitted how much she enjoyed the experience. If you

is first rate thanks to a Mercedes-Benz derived platform (GL-Class). There is a good amount of road feel but bigger bumps are eaten up with no fuss. Verdict This latest Durango is yet another example of what Chrysler is doing right. It is loaded with the latest technology, has a class leading 8-speed automatic, attitude and room to spare. I enjoyed my entire time with it and so did the rest of the family, we even gave it a name, “The Badongo” I don’t know why, but it really is one Bad Durango. If I can read the tea leaves for a moment, I would bet the EcoDiesel will be coming to the Durango, hopefully sooner rather then better.

Predictions of Hybrid extinction are premature Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently equated hybrid vehicles to early amphibians that hopped out of the oceans, learned to survive on land and eventually disappeared.

cal power off the main grid. It then uses this energy to go further on electrical power alone. How far depends primarily on the capacity (size) of its storage battery, but also on the drive system, the terrain and weather conditions and how the PHEV is driven. Lugging around a bigger battery obviously increases the weight of a PHEV and it takes up either passenger cabin or more likely trunk cargo space. Hybrid owner feedback is generally very positive and the fuel savings can be substantial. That said, you generally pay a premium for this technology, but that gap is rapidly narrowing. Last year, GM slashed $5,000 off the price of its popular Chevrolet Volt, the best selling PHEV on the market. The new Honda Accord Hybrid (a HEV) further blurs the differences between HEV and PHEV, as it uses the same two-motor powertrain used in the Accord Plug-in Hybrid (a PHEV edition that’s currently only sold in selected markets). At speeds under 80 km/h the road wheels are driven by an electric motor and its Atkinson cycle gas engine is only used to generate electrical power, when needed. The current list price for an Accord EX-L is $29,455 and the Accord Hybrid starts at $29,590, which is only $135 more. The top-line Accord Touring V6 sells for $35,400 and the Touring edition of Accord Hybrid is $36,690, just an extra $290. The price differential is almost non-existent. While the popularity of hybrid vehicles continues to grow, barring a sudden spike in the price of oil/gasoline, a meteoric rise in the popularity of alternatives to the old reliable gas engine vehicle is unlikely. Then again, who knows what the future, or the next twist in evolution, will bring. Hybrid vehicles have never been more affordable and certainly well worth consideration, if you’re thinking about buying a new vehicle.

BMW’s X5 marks 15 years of luxurious activity

’’

Alexandra Straub

It’s hard to believe that the BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) was launched in the last century. It was a pioneer vehicle in 1999, which essentially launched a brand new segment. Fast forward to 2014 and you now have the latest installment of five-passenger people mover. 2014 BMW X5 xDrive 35i – the third generation X5 continues the tradition of modern luxury mixed with a capable xDrive all-wheel drive system, and of course, some of the latest tech gadgets. It also comes with an overhauled look, on the inside and out. Starting with its Mineral White Metallic exterior, BMW continues to build on the X5’s soft-edge features, meaning, designers didn’t ditch the rounded curves for more angular or boxy characteristics. Its physique continues to embody the philosophy of a short front overhang, a long wheelbase, upright A-pillars and a short distance between the front axle and the leading edge of the front door. The broad-set kidney grille reaches out and touches the front headlights, making its head-on appearance bold and seamless.

to have. Of course, BMW also loaded this particular test vehicle with the Technology Package ($3,800) that includes active LED headlights, active bind spot detection, lane departure and collision warning and more. And to make life behind the wheel a little more musical, there was an integrated Bang and Olufsen system that will add $4,900 to the base MSRP of $62,900. The price as tested came to $77,950 (excluding the destination charge of $2,095) alexandra.straub @drivewaybc.ca

Another perk of the steering wheel? It’s heated. Other things inside that keep you and the passengers warm is the ability to control four different climate zones. Thanks to the Premium Package ($5,500) one of its features is the Auto 4-Zone Climate Control. This package also adds heated rear seats, a head-up display, manual side sunshades, and a feature that I really like, surround view with top view. Surround view allows gives you a 270° projection of what’s going on around the X5. For a vehicle as large as it is, it’s a wonderful feature

You’ll experience a ride that is calm and collected, as well as smooth and enjoyable.

Eco Pro is the mode you’d want. But if you’re feeling like you want a little more something, Sport or Sport+ will do the trick. Aside from changing the feel of the X5 when driving, you’ll experience a ride that is calm and collected, as well as smooth and enjoyable. Steering is done via a rackand-pinion system, therefore it’s not a chore to get the vehicle moving in a direction that you want. I’d categorize it on the “heavier” side, but because of that, I felt I was better able to interpret what was going on underneath, especially at higher speeds.

WEEKLY

To me, I find the overall looks to be understated but not necessarily awe-inspiring. My mind wasn’t blown when I first laid eyes on it. Then again, looks aren’t everything. If functionality is what you’re after, the X5 has plenty of that. Instead of starting in the front row, let’s skip to the back seats. The leather-trimmed cabin offers each occupant a cuddle when sitting inside. Furthermore, legroom in the second row is generous, especially when the front seats aren’t pushed all the way back. There’s even a decent amount of space in the cargo area, which totals 650L. In the driver’s seat, the captain of this luxurious vehicle has the best of all worlds. Within arm’s reach is the iDrive infotainment system, easily readable centre stack and the gearshift lever to the 8-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic. The transmission is then linked to BMW’s award-winning engine. Powering this particular vehicle was the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six cylinder engine. It has an output of 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Should you desire more ponies, you can always opt for the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 offering more get up and go (445hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.) When you turn on the X5 via the push button start, you also have the option to have more or less pizazz when it comes to driving dynamics. There are four modes in which you can enjoy this SAV including, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Eco Pro. The names are self-explanatory. If you’re romping around town, and don’t want to bridle all the horses, and you want to save on some fuel,

Walking is a great way to burn calories and shed excess weight. You can walk just about anywhere, you don’t need expensive equipment, and you have already perfected the skill of walking. However, if you walk the same route at the same pace most days of the week,

you are not getting the most out of your workout. The body quickly adapts to the imposed demands which can lead to a plateau. This is not a concern if you walk for health and leisure. But, if you want to challenge your Tanja body, SHAW improve your fitness level, and lose a few pounds, be sure to change up your walking routine. 1. Gain elevation. There is no question that walking up hill is immensely more difficult than walking on level ground. Pick a hilly walking route at least once per week. As your fitness level improves, accelerate on the uphill to boost your cardiovascular fitness. Hiking is another great way to incorporate hillsoften steep hills- into your routine. Tea Pot Hill, Lindeman Lake and Elk Mountain are three accessible hikes in our area. For more information on local hikes, go to www.hikechilliwack.com. 2. Bump up the speed. Walking faster also challenges your body. After a fiveminute warm up, pick

up the pace for one to five minutes. Tighten your abs and focus on a strong push-off to lengthen your stride. After the pick-up, return to a moderate pace for one or two minutes. Repeat for the duration of your walking route. Allow a few minutes of moderate walking at the end of your walk to cool down. “Fartlek� training, or speed plays, is another option for varying the speed. Pick an object in the distance, such as a distinct tree or telephone pole. Pick up the pace until you reach the object, then return to a moderate pace. After some recovery, pick another landmark and repeat. 3. Mix it up. While walking is great for your heart and lungs, it does little to sculpt muscles. A great way to change up your walking routine is to add in strength breaks. Walking lunges and squats are great exercises to strengthen your lower body. Pushups, which can be done with your hands on a bench, as well as triceps dips work the upper body. If you bring exercise tubing along (it can be tied around your waist), you can add in tubing pulls (for your upper back) and tubing biceps curls. For a great walk and sculpt workout, start by

walking briskly for 10 minutes then perform 20 repetitions of each exercise (mentioned above). Repeat the walk/sculpt pattern three to six times for a workout that strengthens your heart and your muscles. 4. Walk in the water. Pool walking is a great way to vary your walking routine and challenge new muscles. The water’s resistance will build muscle tone. Also, walking in the water will put less stress on joints. In the shallow end, walk forwards, backwards and sideways to challenge all the leg muscles. If you choose to walk in deep water, be sure to wear a buoyancy belt or carry aqua dumbbells so you can maintain

proper posture. Try to increase your stride speed to challenge your cardiovascular system. 5. Go the extra mile. A simple way to challenge your body is to increase your walking distance. If you are comfortable walking five kilometers, walk six next time. Simply, the more you walk the more calories you will burn and the more your fitness level will increase.

How to ‘bee’ good a friend looking at heather beds on the weekend, you could see them crawling with bees. What a nice complement to nature. The beautiful Helleborus niger (Christmas Rose) is also an important source of nectar for bees. On a nice day, look at the blooms and you’ll discover bees inside. The newer varieties, H. ‘Joseph Lemper’, H. ‘Jacob’, H. ‘Shooting Star’, H. ‘Mahogany’ and H. ‘Cinnamon Snow’ are all in bloom outdoors now and are real allies for the bees. Winter flowering trees have a great deal of importance for bees as well. The winter flowering ‘sasanqua’ camellias, Lonicera fragrantissima (fragrant honeysuckle) and viburnum ‘Pink Dawn’ can all be of great benefit to bees. Sweetbox or sarcococca, that is currently perfuming our gardens, is also a bee attractor; although it is not as popular as some of the others, it still helps a great deal. The winter flowering Mahonia ‘Winter Sun’ (Oregon Grape) is now flowering and open for bee visits. It’s also very helpful to our winter hummingbirds. Believe it or not, there is a winter flowering

clematis, called C. cirrhosa ‘Freckles’, that has been flowering in protected spots all winter. It’s a great nectar producer too. Already, early snowdrops are coming up. At the same time, the far more essential yellow winter aconite is also popping up, and it’s a great source of nectar as well. Our poor bees are struggling and anything we can do to help them out is really important. For the early bees, these plants

are critical to their survival. Remember too: no bird feeders around these plants as birds are natural predators

I couldn’t help but notice the wild honeybees sourcing nectar last weekend in the mild weather we’ve been enjoying. It’s such a treat to see them, Brian espeMINTER cially knowing they are under threat for survival. The loss of habitat, lack of nutrition, the misapplication of neonicotinoid insecticides, the parasitic mite Varroa destructor and many bacterial and viral diseases are all taking their toll. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could create even a small habitat around our homes to help them out, particularly in the winter months when food sources are scarce. There are some important winter flowering plants that provide nectar at this challenging time of year. It’s also interesting that wild honeybees need 80% nectar while mason bees prefer 90% pollen. Winter flowering heathers seem to be number one on their list of importance. Just

Perspectives

Video gaming: You and your children With the Christmas season just passed, and presents still perhaps finding their way to their new homes from under the tree, some readers, young and old, might have received video games as presents, or possibly given them as gifts. We happened to give our nephew the FIFA 14 and Madden 25 soccer and football games respectively, for his new PS4 gaming system. And when I asked one of my wonderful teenage clients (who happens to love computer gaming) if he was hoping for any particular Christmas presents, he said that he wished computer version of Grand Theft Auto 5 would be released. My mouth almost fell open. Continuing in our series on technology, Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) is the most expensive and profitable game out there currently. It’s well known for its violence, degradation of women, and my insightful, empathic teen client, who has a family equally amazing, wants it.

And his mom was okay with it. When asked why, he said the multiplayer driving with friends was a lot of fun in previous versions, and that you can play for hours and not even encounter some of unsavoury stuff. The obvious concerning Eryn actions and WICKER characters are not always that obvious…at least to him. His mom, who attends sessions, says that dialoguing about game

choices, validating his opinions, and compromise are key. If her son had any concerning behaviours then she wouldn’t want to feed those; and if she says no, it becomes more attractive and even secretive whereas presently he plays all games at home, under her supervision. The Grand Theft Auto franchise has a legacy of making parents question whether or not they should blindly buy video games for their children. And the fifth edition contains all the hallmarks of the franchise, including “gambling, robbing fictional characters

(including prostitutes) with firearms, and attacking police officers with bats and grenades.” According to one review “GTA 5’s

Congratulations

to the following students on achieving

Of Tomorrow Tyson is a self starting, think outside the box, problem solving all around great person. He has an incredible mechanical skill set and is willing to push it further whenever the opportunity presents itself. He is a leader in the classroom, on the field and in the school community. Tyson is responsible and always looks for something more to do, often putting others before him so he can share his knowledge. He is a creative solution finder. It is a pleasure to work with him in the classroom as he challenges others to think outside of traditional ideals. Tyson makes others better by challenging them to stay one step ahead of him. Tyson has expressed a desire to complete his Heavy Duty Mechanic Certificate and has enrolled with the local Trades program at UFV Chilliwack. He has been involved with a variety of school sports, most recently on the Graham Senior Varsity Football team. Come spring he will represent the school as a Senior Varsity athlete on the Rugby pitch. Tyson has completed over 1,000 hours in the Secondary School Apprenticeship program in the Trade of Landscaping. In addition to those apprenticeship hours, he completed several hundred hours with a Work Experience program under the applied skills focus, with placements at the School Board Office, The Salvation Army and The Rotary Club Book exchange. Tyson is everything one seeks in a Graham Grizzly.

rating for intense violence, blood and gore, nudity, mature humor, strong language, strong sexual content, and use of drugs and alcohol.” However, the same reviewer also noted that GTA 5 is a great game, filled with unique scenarios and colorful characters, strategic and complicated robberies, and a plethora of vehicles and weaponry to choose from to help players advance. Other reviews have commented on the misogynistic undertones and the failure of the developer and its critics to disclose a very intense torture scene that cannot be skipped. Female characters exist to be rescued, shouted at, killed, or heard gossiping on their mobile phones, or shopping. Of course, reviewer’s and players opinions are each subjective, every

player is unique, reads into scenes and characters differently, and finds different things sarcastic or funny or offensive. Knowing what your children are up to on any screen: game, phone, iPod, computer, TV, etc is important. You can disagree and still validate. Children and adolescents can have validity in their argument, not needing to be dismissed simply due to age; and parents can exercise their judgment and say no. But most importantly, parents and children can dialogue about social media, texting, and technology so that everyone can be on the same page and safe, which is what we’re hoping our series will help facilitate.

excellence at school and in our community Ema is best described as a genuine, determined, caring and energetic young woman. She comes from a family of eight kids who emigrated from Romania in 1991 and has been here ever since. Along with duties that come with a big family, Ema has been very involved in our school and community. Ever since grade ten, Ema told me of her goal to work in the medical field. Along with her academic course load, Ema is a member of the school’s leadership class where she works on activities that benefit the entire school and community. Volunteering has been very important to Ema. In grade ten she started volunteering at Eden Intermediate Care Home, an extended care facility for the elderly. Along with Eden Care she is also a Big Sister for the Big Brother Big Sister program. This program has been very worthwhile to Ema, not only did she become a Big Sister but she attended the 100th Anniversary event for Big Brother Big Sister in Ottawa. Ema has had sisters to look up to her whole life and having the opportunity to be a Big Sister and provide support and mentorship has been extremely rewarding to her. As if this isn’t enough she maintains a part time job saving up for her education. I am very proud and excited for her as she moves on this June as a contributing young person in our community.

“Where does she find the time and energy?” This is the question that often crosses the mind of people who know Nadia. She is a dynamo of initiative. A top notch student with aspirations of a career in health sciences, Nadia has well-developed habits of excellence. Her academic track record is exemplary. Nadia is insightful, a critical thinker and holds a problemsolving orientation. She has taken initiative to make our school and the greater community a better place. She is a co-founder and co-chair of the Ecomaniacs club, the Sardis Student Forums, co-chair of the Community Club, and member of the Grad Committee, the “Be the Change” committee and a variety of other school based social action groups. She still finds time to be involved in community initiatives as well: She is a member of the Rotary Interact Club of Chilliwack, a regular hospital volunteer and a Hospice Teen Grief Peer Support Counselor. She is described by those who know her as genuine, cooperative, intelligent, creative, witty and willing to learn. She has made a significant impact on the school culture at Sardis and we are proud to offer our congratulations on being selected the Leader of Tomorrow for the month of December. Well done Nadia!

Expert advice from professionals in your area when you need it!

When is the best time to sell your home There is much that is dependent on the sale of a home. The economy and the time of year are important factors. Luck can often have a major role when you ask yourself why your neighbor’s home, almost identical to your own, sold in just a few days while your’s has been sitting idle for a matter of months. There are a few things you should know that could help you with the sale of your own home.

45 Seconds That’s all it takes. You have 45 seconds to impress your buyer. As your potential buyer is walking into your house, she is taking everything in and making her initial decision right there on the spot. If she loves your home there’s not much that can be done to change her mind unless she sees some-

thing truly unappealing and unexpected. If your buyer is on the fence or not 100% certain that this house is for them, you will have to make sure that everything about your home is in order.

Then, make sure the inside of your home is as warm and welcoming as the outside is.

Stand apart from the crowd

Take a step back and put your sentiment and emotions behind you. Take yourself out of the picture. You are selling a tangible product, not your home. Why does a consumer want your product? How will your product make them better? How will your product enrich your consumer’s life of lifestyle? When you sell a home, you’re selling a lifestyle and a dream, therefore you want to market your home in such a way that a buyer will believe that he or she is getting a fabulous product that will enhance their life and lifestyle.

Make your home stand out from the all others. Make it remarkable. Make it so that others take notice. The first thing you can do is to clean up and fix up your front yard. Trim your hedges and bushes. Add some fresh mulch, plant some fresh flowers and add some flowers or a large plant near your front door. You may want to add a fresh coat of paint to your front door, and while you’re at it, why not try an unexpected color?

As with any purchase, today’s consumers want to feel as though they are getting a good deal. Price yourself well. If you overprice your home you’ll not only likely sit around on the market for too long, but you could ruin a potentially good sale. The longer a house sits the less desirable it becomes. People will start to question why the house hasn’t sold and may think there’s something wrong with the house. This must be avoided. The ultimate goal is to sell your home so that the buyer feels good about the purchase and that you feel good about the sale.

LAND DEVELOPMENT If you have a large parcel of land and are considering the possibility of subdividing it, you will want to do some due diligence to initiate the process. Initially you will need to determine whether your property is properly zoned for your intended subdivision plan. This will determine the potential use and size of land parcel that your property can be subdivided into. Secondly, you should determine the requirements that the City may require as part of the subdivision

process. This may include items such as improvements to the fronting road, upgrading utilities to provide adequate levels of service and expropriation of land for future road widening or right of way requirements. The City of Chilliwack staff are very helpful and can provide assistance with these initial steps. Once you have resolved these initial steps you will want to prepare a preliminary subdivision plan that addresses the city’s zoning bylaw requirements. A professional Engineer can

assist with the efÀcient subdivision layouts that address bylaw requirements, topography, utilities and other criteria that may affect the site. The Preliminary subdivision plan can then be submitted to the City to obtain a Preliminary Letter of Approval (PLA). This document will provide a detailed list of requirements that you will now need to have addressed by various professionals for the detailed design submission required for your subdivision project.

As far as heating and air condition goes now is an appropriate time to talk about 2 topics that often don’t get enough attention. The first is furnace maintenance, furnaces should be serviced yearly, if you consider the amount of air a furnace moves per season, you may agree. An average furnace moves 42 tons of air per season, now air doesn’t seem to weigh much but it does weigh something by the time a furnace has circulated the air during a heating season around the house, it adds up. This means by circulating that much air, the filter will get dirty, filters should be changed at least yearly, often twice a year and sometimes monthly, the amount of dirt a filter accumulates is based on the amount of air filtered as well as the environment, places closer to open fields or a river often get dirtier filters because of the dirt that migrates into the building from outside. Another thing that can affect how dirty a filter gets is the flooring, that’s right the flooring. Places with hardwood floors or similar flooring get dirtier filters sooner because the floor allows more dirt to make it’s way into the ducts and then into the filter, in buildings with carpets the filters don’t get as dirty because the carpets trap a lot of the dirt. Furnace inspections are also important. A furnace uses as much energy in a season as a compact car travelling 5000 km. Its a good idea to have an inspection and oil change on a car at 5000 km then it makes sense to have a furnace check up after it uses the same amount of energy, a proper inspection would identify problems with the heat exchanger or other working components before they would become troublesome or even dangerous. Contact your heating contractor to arrange for a service inspection. If you don’t have someone to call please call me at Class A Heating and we can arrange for a full service and inspection. -Brent Devlin

What type of service should I have?

1-14W ML31

Only you can answer that question. The type of service conducted for the deceased, if not noted in a pre-plan, is decided by the family. The service is usually held at a place of worship or at the funeral home. The service may vary in ritual according to religious denomination or the wishes of the family. The presence of friends at this time is an acknowledgment of friendship and support. A private service is by invitation only where selected relatives and a few close friends attend the funeral service. A memorial service is usually a service without the body present and can vary in ceremony and procedures according to the family's community and religious affiliations.

Many people, especially people with spouses, don’t really think they need a Power of Attorney. If one is unable to act on their own behalf, many assume that a spouse or family member can just step in and take care of legal and financial affairs such as selling property or insuring a vehicle. This is not the case. Without a valid Power of Attorney, someone will likely have to go to court in order to obtain the authority to act on your behalf. This is typically a very expensive and time consuming process. The solution is doing a Power of Attorney. It is a relatively inexpensive document that allows you to decide who will act for you if you

Itchy Burning Eyes? I am frequently asked about treatments for the symptoms of scratching and burning associated with dry eyes. The most common thought is to use eye drops. There are so many available over the counter that it is hard to know which one to choose. In general, the thicker the drop the more comfort you will receive but the drop may blur your vision for a few minutes because the drop is so thick or viscous. Drops that contain vasoconstrictors that “get the red out” should be avoided as these may become addictive.

supplement you should target 1000-3000 mg per day. Dry eye can also be treated with adding hot compresses. The hot compresses should be done for 6-10 minutes twice a day. Daily lid scrubs with products designed for this purpose is the next step. Adding a humidifier and drinking lots of water helps as well.

HOW TO WRITE A CLASSIFIED AD 8 Simple Steps to Creating a Classified Ad That Sells:

1 2 3

What do you have to offer? Start your advertisement by naming the item or service you are presenting.

What’s the best part of your offer? Identify and write about the most beneficial feature of the product or service you are advertising.

6

Have you covered all of your bases? Make sure you are providing sufficient information about the merchandise or service you are offering, including the price! Does the reader know what you are selling, why they should buy it and how they can contact you for more information?

Making a ‘good’ offer brings optimum results When purchasing a new home, your offer is the stimulus that sets the negotiation process in motion. In any market, well-located homes are in high demand and can sell quickly. Planning a strong buyer’s strategy in advance increases the probability that your offer will be accepted by the seller. A good basic offer includes the price you’re willing to pay for the house, your financing terms, and contingencies. The following steps will help you prepare your offer for optimum results. Enlist your real estate agent’s help to decide on a realistic offering price, based on comparable houses sold in the neighbourhood over the last several months. If the local inventory of available homes for sale is low and houses are receiving multiple offers, you will need to bid competitively and promptly. If you’re in love with the home, your chance of moving in is greater if your offer is as close to the asking price as possible. Is the price a limiting factor for you, or can you afford to be flexible? Next, a good basic offer includes realistic financing terms. Being pre-approved for a loan gives you a competitive edge over other buyers, so declare this in the offer to convince the seller you’re serious. Decide what concessions you are willing to make.

If you are looking for the right Realtor® to market your home, or you’re planning on purchasing and want to know which neighbourhood will be just right for you, give me a call! Born and raised in Chilliwack and being actively involved in my community has given me extensive knowledge of the area that will be invaluable for your real estate needs.

Licensed since May 1980, I have been a part of the many changes Chilliwack has undergone. The Real Estate profession during that time has also undergone many changes. The introduction of Disclosure and Agency. Disclosure took all the uncertainty away. Simply put, disclose all things known to all parties involved. Agency, a clear understanding of the relationship you are entering into with your Realtor! I now enter my senior years as a Realtor, with my knowledge and experience I bring added value to the process of preparing you to make a well informed decision whether you are buying or selling. Respectfully, Richard Wenham

Consider your needs versus your desires: which features of a home are absolute requirements? On which points would you be willing to compromise to please the seller? Specify anything that you expect or want to come with the home, such as the chandelier in the dining room, etc. Don’t let the bargaining table be the place where key questions are answered. Regardless of how much you would like to include an item(s) with the house purchase, remember that you are buying a home, not chattel! So don’t get too hung up on trying to negotiate chattel into your contract. Finally, try to be as flexible as possible and willing to compromise with the seller. Meeting in the middle is a good bargaining tactic that allows each party to share the burden relative to any point of contention. Concentrate on your priorities but allow for some give and take. Express your interest in the home, but don’t go overboard. People often respond to another’s sincere enthusiasm, and will empathize with a buyer that appreciates their home as much as they do, especially if the buyer has an informed, systematic approach to the negotiations process.

I’m happy to say that Chilliwack is my home, and always has been. This is a city with spirit and heartbeat! I love living here, so it’s no wonder to me that others want to make it their home too. While our city keeps growing and the landscape keeps changing, people’s basic needs tend to stay the same... especially when it comes to buying and protecting their most important asset -their homes. Finding the right Realtor® to help you buy or sell your home, means making a GOOD CHOICE. My professional experience has always centred around helping people from all walks of life, which made a career in real estate a perfect fit for me. Working hard and doing a great job as your Realtor® is always my goal...it’s what I believe in. You can trust that with me on your side, you’ll always get the same top-notch service that I would expect myself. Ready to talk real estate? Call me anytime... it’s where your GOOD CHOICE gets GREAT RESULTS!

College career coming to close national champions, and her No. 1 ranked T-Birds appear on track to win a fifth. They won two before she arrived, making them a potential seven year dynasty. Before losing to the Brandon Bobcats in mid-January, her crew had won 39 straight matches dating back 15 months. One could say she’s fortunate to have never faced any adversity with this team, but she disagreed. “We definitely face adversity,” she insisted. “Every year, battling through injuries and sickness — we’ve always managed to get through it with the help of everyone on the bench. It takes everyone to get where we are.” She remembered arriving as a freshman, joining a team that was loaded with nationalteamers. “That’s one of the things I’ll put in my speech is a story about my first practice and how oblivious I was,” she laughed. “I was a first-year middle blocker joining this undefeated team, and I couldn’t put up a block. The defence behind me must have been wondering who I was.” It took a while for her to hit her stride. Only this year has she truly settled in as a starter. “The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this is becoming more of a team player,” she said. “One thing (coach) Doug (Reimer)

always focuses on is, if you play for the whole team it always works out. I’ve always taken that to heart and I’ll carry it into whatever career I go into. Focus on the whole and it’ll work out.” Another coach will be in her thoughts and probably in the room

when she delivers her senior speech Saturday. Duncan Harrison, formerly a coach at Highroad Academy and now the Columbia Bible College bench boss, guided Bruinsma’s club team to two BC championships and national bronze. “With a lot of coach-

es, you leave high school and you’re not their player anymore and they stop caring,” she said. “But he’s come to my games, met me for coffee and sent me letters of encouragement the whole time. He’s been the biggest mentor in my life and I’m so thankful for that.”

Mariah Bruinsma is pretty sure she’ll tear up this weekend, as she delivers her farewell speech to her family, friends, teammates and coaches. After five years, a hugely successful volleyball career at the University of British Columbia is coming to a close. And she’s a cryer. “I know I’ll have to have something written out beforehand, because if I don’t then I’ll get lost and flustered and really start crying,” Bruinsma said. The Chilliwack native started freaking out about this moment four years ago, as her first year at UBC came to a close. Sitting on the bench, witnessing her first senior night, the Unity Christian grad was already thinking ahead to the day when she’d be ‘asked to say a few words.’ “I was watching the seniors and I was shocked,” she recalled. “Wow. We have to give a speech?” Bruinsma hasn’t written her speech yet, at least not fully. But she knows who to thank, what she wants to say and how she wants to say it. “I haven’t practiced it much because I want it to come from the heart,” she said. Bruinsma has been fortunate to be included in something special, one of the most dominant women’s volleyball teams Canada has ever seen. She’s been part of

G i off Going ff script i The Chiefs trailed the Warriors by 35 points and had lost seven straight, writes Jacob Bestebroer Wow. Entertaining. Incredible. Those were the words w ords I heard most from people referencing last Sunday’s 7-7 tie between the Chilliwack Chiefs and West Kelowna Warriors W arriors at Prospera Centre. I agree fully and would add ‘felt like 1985’ to the list. Heading in to that game the Chiefs trailed the Warriors by 35 points in the standings and had lost seven straight. The T he Warriors had won w on six straight. The game should not have been close, and when West K took a 1-0 lead 62 seconds in it seemed the expected script would w ould be followed. But somehow, despite being outplayed by a wide margin in the first period, the Chiefs only trailed 3-2 after 20 minutes. So maybe the Chiefs could make this one interesting. Or maybe not. The vvisitors isitors scored two early second period goals to increase their lead to 5-2 and the game was back on script. What happened next was completely unexpected. W ith Josh Halpenny replacing Spencer Tremblay in goal the Chiefs started to get the saves they needed and then managed to score five straight goals to take a 7-5 lead with two and a half minutes left in the third. West Kelowna is certainly talented enough to score two or more in a short period of time but they were likely going to need help from the Chiefs, which w hich is exactly what they got. A missed shot at the vacated Warriors net, two icings, a penalty and a few other mistakes allowed the

Warriors to score two late ones and send the game to overtime. The extra time was wild and crazyy played four on fourr then three on three. West K chose to go with three forwards for most of the second overtime and Halpenny was forced to stop a penalty shott to preserve the tie. It was disappointing to not earn the two points but I’m looking at this in a positive light. This team did nott give up. They didn’t give up prior to the game orr at any point during it. And judging by the number of people in the stands, the fans have not given up either. That’s nice to see. Several Chiefs played very well in this game. Tanner Cochrane led the way with three goals but I wantt to single out the playy of one player as off late. Jordan Kawaguchi has really started to find his way at this level the last three games. You neverr know how or when a 16 year old will adjustt to this level of hockey and for Jordan itt seems to be happening now. This weekend the Chiefs face the Surrey Eagles twice including Saturday att Prospera Centre. They are 16 points behind the Eagles in the race for the final playoff spot. Wins in regulation by the Chiefs are a must. Saturday’s game sponsor is Island Farms which means the return of the skating cow, who is expected to toss ice cream lids with greatt prizes on them into the crowd. Good times. jb@chilliwackchiefs.net

Coaching carousel brings Ridgeway to Raiders The BC Junior Football Conference has seen half of its teams turn over head coaches this offseason, including its crown-jewel franchise. Brian Ridgeway is the new bench boss for the Vancouver Island Raiders, replacing Matt Snoop Blokker. Blokker won seven BCFC Cullen Cups and three Canadian Bowl title and is the all-time winningest coach in BCFC history. He departs with a record of 111-19-2, including 16 playoff wins. Ridgeway has massive shoes to fill. The 29 year old is fresh out of the pro ranks, where he played three years with the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes. Ridgeway played for the Raiders during their 2006 championship season, earned

All-Canadian honours at linebacker. After leaving the BCFC he played one year with the CIS St. Mary’s Huskies and three with the Simon Fraser Clansmen. “I am so happy we got this guy for the job,� said Raider president Chris Cross. “He is an alumni with an amazing pedigree of winning at all levels. We are excited for the professionalism he will bring to our team coming straight out of the CFL, and for the passion that this

young man is full of.� Meanwhile, the Langley Rams brought back a familiar face in exHusker Jeff Alamolhoda, who guided the Rams to a back to back BCFC title games. His team won the BCFC championship in 2012 and fell to the Saskatoon Hilltops in a thrilling Canadian final. Job commitments forced him to step aside, but now he’s back. In Victoria, the Westshore Rebels have been search-

ing for a new head coach to replace Tim Kearse. A man whose coaching resume includes time in the Canadian Football League with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Hamilton TigerCats and Montreal Alouettes, Kearse stepped in on an interim basis to replace John Cardillicia â—? New Valley Huskers bench boss Adam Smith is still filling in his coaching stuff, but some are already in place. Coaches in the fold include Moe Agagnier, Corey Hamade, Rob Begg, Calvin Sanheim, Jeff Whitehead, Ryan Bell and Joe Klyne. Anyone wanting to put their name in the hat for an assistant coaching position can find a form online at velleyhuskers. org.

Must-wins as Chiefs face Surrey Just winning won’t be enough for the Chilliwack Chiefs as they face Surrey in a BCHL home-and-home clash this weekend. The Chiefs must take both games in regulation time if they wish to keep their fading playoff hopes alive. Trailing the Eagles by 16 points, with one game in hand, in the chase for the Mainland

division’s fourth seed, the Chiefs need to gain ground quick. After this weekend, only two head to head matchups will remain with Surrey. Chilliwack will have 11 regular season games to go. The good news is the Eagles are one of the few teams they’ve handled well this year. Chilliwack’s taken four

of the five meetings so far. They haven’t met since the early-January trade deadline when both teams made significant moves. The Chiefs sent captain Austin Plevy to Alberta and traded a pair of blueliners (Cooper Rush and Shay Laurent). At the same time, Surrey offloaded for-

ward Brett Mulcahy, Luke Sandler and Nicholas Pierog — all three top-six talents. The Eagles won their most recent game, taking down Coquitlam 5-2 Wednesday night. The Chiefs most recent game was a wild 7-7 draw, last Sunday versus the West Kelowna Warriors. See bchl.ca for more info.

Fanning Flames at midget tourney Two Chilliwack Minor Hockey products played in the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association’s 2014 Midget Scholarship Tournament, which took place Jan. 19-25 at several Lower Mainland rinks. Shane Marsden suited up on defence, while Sean Longfellow played forward. Longfellow had an outstanding tourney, scoring six goals in four games as his Fraser Valley

Flames advanced to the final. Marsden added steady D and one goal from the blueline. The Flames went 2-1 in roundrobin play with wins over the Greater Vancouver Avalanche and Canucks. Their lone loss came against the Fraser Valley Oilers, the team they’d meet once more in the championship game. It was played Saturday night in North Surrey, with the Oilers

winning 4-3. Post tournament, Longfellow was awarded the Vancouver Canucks Alumni Special Bursary, to help with his post-secondary schooling. The PCAHA holds five special recognition events each year, promoting the ideals of scholastic achievement and sportsmanship. See pcaha.bc.ca for more information.

Chilliwack two overcome obstacles Chilliwack athletes Sharon Fast and Dale Cuthbertson won their respective age groups at the first Spartan Super Obstacle Race of 2014, held in Southern California. Fast and Cuthbertson traversed a 15 kilometre obstacleladen course, running up and down mountainous trails near Temecula.

More than 11,000 athletes competed in the Spartan Super event and shorter Spartan Sprint event (five-plus km). Fast, 54 years old, bested nearly 800 women with a time of two hours and 20 minutes. Cuthbertson, 61 years old, finished in one hour and 57 minutes, topping more than 3,000 competitors in his division.

Both athletes finished among the top six per cent in the entire field. Both athletes train at Ascend Fitness Coaching in Sardis. Spartan races are designed to test resilience, strength, stamina, quick decision making skills, and overall athleticism. Check spartanrace.com for more info.

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence is trying something new, launching polo sessions at the Cheam Centre pool.

KOHN, Klaus Peter It is with deep sadness to announce the passing of Klaus Peter Kohn. He was born May 18, 1935 and passed away quietly January 22, 2014. He will be remembered by his wife Christa, daughters Claudia Lemire (her husband Roger) and Christina Squire (her husband James) and his two grandsons Craig and Carter. He was a strong man with a very soft heart, who loved to travel and had a passion for the sea. His grandsons will never forget his story about his pet monkey when he was working as a young man on the freighter ships. Klaus and Christa had an adventurious life, living in many communities in British Columbia. He was best known for running his own restaurants with his wife Christa. Klaus was a hard working man, with strong morals and strong opinions, he had a great smile and a wonderful laugh. Klaus was a loving husband and father, he will be dearly missed by all of his family and friends.

Hill, Arthur Thomas Arthur Thomas Hill passed away peacefully on January 26, 2014, at the age of 94. He was surrounded by his loving family. Arthur was born in 1920 in Carman, Manitoba. Arthur is survived by his wife Barbara of 65 years and their five children: David (Yvonne), Barbara Jr, Ken (Jackie), Patricia (Jim), Don (Arleigh), ten grandchildren and 5 and ¾ great-grandchildren, as well as “Buddy” his faithful canine companion. Arthur was a much loved husband, father, friend and community minded gentleman. Arthur was a well trained and experienced poultry geneticist. He advanced scientific research in his chosen field but never forgot the real world of business which he helped both professionally and as a volunteer. The family is grateful for the support and care given to Arthur, with special thanks to his family doctor, Dr. Basson and his loving and caring staff, the staff on the fifth floor at Chilliwack General, along with Drs. Enns and Harrison. A celebration of Arthur’s life will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 at 1:00pm at the Carman United Church in Sardis. In lieu of flowers, donations to Carman United Church would be gratefully received.

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN 9850-25-2014

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is renewing its approval under the Integrated Pest Management Act for activities, including the use of pesticides, involved in its Nuisance Mosquito Control Program. These activities are conducted under the guidance of a Pest Management Plan (PMP), which is being developed by the FVRD for the 20142019 mosquito seasons. The majority of nuisance mosquitoes in the FVRD breed along the banks of the Fraser River and its tributaries where seasonal flooding and seepage results in substantial mosquito breeding habitat particularly in years of high river levels. Standing waters within the FVRD that are prone to seasonal flooding will be treated between May – July using bacterial larvicides with the active ingredients Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) or Bacillus sphaericus (Bsph). Both Bti (trade names Aquabac 200G, Vectobac 200G, or Vectobac 1200L) and Bsph (trade name Vectolex CG) are registered for use in Canada, are target specific to nuisance mosquito larvae, are non-toxic, and are environmentally safe. These proposed pesticides will be applied by either hand or by helicopter to mosquito larvae development sites on nonprivate lands or on owner-approved private lands throughout the FVRD. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the PMP, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address below within 30 days of the publication of this notice. Also, within 30 days, a person wishing to review the application or provide comments, may do so by contacting the person below. Stacey Barker Manager, Environmental Services Fraser Valley Regional District 45950 Cheam Avenue Chilliwack, BC V2P 1N6 1-800-528-0061 | mosquitoes@fvrd.bc.ca
