CRASH SHUTS HIGHWAY A woman who police say purposely drove the wrong way down Highway 1 in Abbotsford on Sunday morning was taken to hospital to undergo a psychological assessment. The 36-year-old Langley woman was driving a Volkswagen Beetle and crashed head-on with a car being driven by a 29-year-old Abbotsford man. The woman sustained minor injuries, while the man suffered a broken femur and injuries to his knees. He was airlifted to hospital by an air ambulance.

KEVIN MACDONALD Abbotsford News

14 dangerous dogs recorded Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A woman was walking her chihuahua along a sidewalk in a residential area of Abbotsford when a large dog ran out of an adjacent house and towards them. The woman tried to pick up her small dog, but it wriggled out of its collar and was chased and attacked by the larger dog. The chihuahua died of its injuries. The larger dog, which was staying temporarily in Abbotsford but resides in Alberta, was deemed “dangerous” and now must conform with applicable bylaw restrictions whenever it is in Abbotsford. In another instance, two dogs escaped from a fenced yard and attacked a woman, causing injuries so severe that she required emergency hospitalization. Both dogs were euthanized. These are just two examples of the types of “dangerous dog” situations that have occurred in Abbotsford in recent years. Last year, 14 dogs in the city were designated as “dangerous,” meaning they killed or seriously injured a person or domestic animal. As such, they are now required to follow certain guidelines, including being muzzled while in public and being confined indoors or in an enclosure when on private property. If the requirements are not followed, the dog can be seized by an animal control officer, who may also apply to the provincial court for an order that the dog be destroyed. None of the dogs deemed dangerous last year in Abbotsford have been euthanized. The issue of dangerous dogs recently came to light in Abbotsford after neigh-

Animals must be muzzled in public In 2013, 14 dogs in Abbotsford were designated as “dangerous.” Thirteen had bitten a person or an animal, while one – a husky – killed a dog. The 13 were broken down into: T four pit bulls; T two American bulldogs; T two Australian shepherds; and T a lab, a presa canario, a German shepherd, a rottweiler, a husky and a bullmastiff. Once deemed dangerous, the dogs must be muzzled while in public or kept enclosed while on private property. There is a $500 fine per bylaw breach. An animal control officer initially does daily patrols, followed by monthly checks and, then, random patrols for as long as the dog remains in the city.

bours of the Auguston area expressed concerns about a pit bull that had attacked two pugs and a German shepherd malamute. The owners of the dog received two tickets for having a “dog at large,” but the injuries to the other animals were not severe enough to have the pit bull deemed as dangerous. Neighbours say they are worried about their safety and that of their dogs, and they would like further action taken against the owners of the pit bull.

“I speak for many families, and we are fed up with this situation,” said Mitch Duckett, the owner of the two pugs who were involved. “Dangerous dog” legislation falls under the provincial government’s Community Charter and becomes part of a city’s animal control bylaws. Although that legislation can only be altered provincially, the City of Abbotsford is reviewing portions of its bylaw and changes will be recommended. City clerk Bill Flitton said the animal control bylaw has been under review for some time and includes consolidating the dog-licence, kennel and pound bylaws into a single bylaw. “We are also looking at provisions for including more rules around nuisance dogs, aggressive dogs and dangerous dogs with the idea that if we were dealing with an aggressive dog, we might be able to get to it sooner before it actually became a dangerous dog under the bylaw.” He said staff will be recommending more detailed fines for infractions, similar to what occurs in Chilliwack, where the Fraser Valley Regional District handles animal control services. There, fines are issued for numerous offences, including $250 for a dog “pursuing or harassing,” $250 for a dog causing injury, and $500 for an aggressive dog not on a leash or not securely confined. Those types of infractions are not currently covered in Abbotsford’s bylaw. Flitton said he hopes the recommended changes to the bylaw will be brought before city council sometime in April.

Municipality rents space in Chilliwack for pound Abbotsford’s pound currently operates out of Chilliwack, with the city paying $5,200 a month to rent space, and have the impounded animals cared for, out of the facility on Wolfe Road. The city signed a five-year agreement on April 1, 2012.

Before that, stray Abbotsford dogs were housed in Aldergrove at Mainland Municipal Animal Control Services, which ended its agreement with the city in early 2011. The City of Abbotsford pays for one full-time staff member to answer Abbotsford-

related calls at the Chilliwack facility and one full-time animal control officer to patrol the city and respond to calls. About 500 calls are fielded each month for Abbotsford, mainly for barking/noisy dogs and stray dogs. Of those, about 150 calls

require an animal control officer to come out. The officer is also responsible for removing dead animals on city property, including in parks and on roads. After-hours and emergency calls are handled through the police non-emergency line.

Despite being in effect for four years, laws against distracted driving are not being heeded by some members of the public.

Distracted drivers targeted Nearly 600 tickets issued in February by Abbotsford Police Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Abbotsford drivers are continuing to use cellphones and other electronic devices, despite legislation passed four years ago. During February’s Distracted Driving Month, the Abbotsford Police Department handed out just under 600 tickets for such infractions, according to Const. Ian MacDonald. “I hate to say it, but there’s no shortage [of people breaking the law],” he said.

MacDonald said one driver who was issued a ticket had six prior fines for distracted driving, showing that the law is not a deterrent for some people. The ticket carries a $167 fine, but the fine does not increase with subsequent offences. MacDonald said police had no difficulty in finding people who were using cellphones and other electronic devices during their blitz. One officer alone wrote 118 such tickets during February.

Officers were both in marked and unmarked cars, and used innovative techniques – such as posing as pedestrians – to target offenders. Distracted driving legislation came into effect on Jan. 1, 2010 to prohibit drivers from talking on their cellphones, texting, or using other handheld devices such as iPods, GPS systems and hand microphones. MacDonald points out that the $167 fine for a violation exceeds the cost of most hands-free Bluetooth devices.

Abbotsford lawyer seeking exemption for patients from new pot rules Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Abbotsford lawyer John Conroy was scheduled to be in a federal court in Vancouver Tuesday, seeking an exemption to new laws for those who grow medical marijuana in their homes. On April 1, the new federal

laws will go into effect, ending the home production of medical marijuana. Instead, all those using medical marijuana will have to purchase it from large-scale commercial facilities that are being set up around the country. This has led to concerns from patients, who fear the cost of

commercial medical marijuana and the quality of the product they will be able to obtain. Conroy is seeking an interim injunction for growers, alleging that the laws violate the constitutional rights of medical marijuana patients when they prohibit patients or caregivers from producing

their own supplies at homes. Currently, patients must destroy their own plants before April 1 and send a letter

Auction to help CFGB raise funds for projects in Syria McClary’s Stockyard hosts its annual Make a Difference Sale on Thursday, March 20, raising funds for Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB), which assists impoverished people around the globe. The auction begins at 10 a.m. at McClary’s stockyard on McClary Avenue off Sumas Way in Abbotsford. Up for bidding will be a variety of donated items such as farm tools, pressure washers, toys, hockey tickets, gift certificates, and potatoes. Livestock will also be auctioned. For every dollar raised by the auction, the federal government matches it four to one. Last year,

the event raised $126,000. This year’s proceeds will be used for Foodgrains Bank-supported projects in Syria that provide clean water and improve health care and nutrition for refugees. Foodgrains Bank focuses on providing food assistance to communities internationally. To date, the organization has provided more than 1.1 million tonnes of food to people in need. The bank is currently supporting a variety of organizations in Jordan and Lebanon, which are providing food to refugees in those countries who have fled the civil war in Syria.

Rise in building permit values noted Abbotsford building permit values rose 64 per cent in January 2014 from December 2013 (seasonally adjusted), according to Vancouver Regional Construction Association’s (VRCA) analysis of Statistics Canada building permit report. “We saw another month of significant gains in non-residential permit values in Abbotsford, and while commercial permits were down after December’s spike, industrial and public permit gains pushed non-residential permits to their highest point since September 2012,” said Fiona Famulak, president of the VRCA. Seasonally adjusted non-residential permit values jumped 98 per cent to $17.8 million in January 2014

0% for 60 Mo. OAC

For the record

from $9 million in December. Commercial permits fell 97 per cent to $200,000 compared to $8.9 million, industrial permits shot up to $13.5 million from $100,000, while institutional-government permits reappeared at $4.1 million after none were issued in December. The seasonally adjusted value of residential permits dropped 13 per cent to $3.5 million in January 2014 from December’s $4 million. VRCA’s outlook for 2014 is moderately positive, with some gains likely in tandem with some gains in the local economy. Residential permits will likely increase, as well as commercial and industrial permits to a smaller degree.

New era for liquor in B.C.

Liquor sales in retail stores are one step closer, with the provincial government unveiling some details recently about the standalone outlets which can be located within existing grocery stores. Liquor will not be sold in corner or convenience stores, which removes one of the concerns of those who opposed selling liquor beyond the existing sales network. Most convenience stores simply do not have the staff to oversee that the sales of such products conform to the desire to keep them out of the hands of minors. While it is true that such stores sell tobacco products, that is something they have always done, and they are being pushed much harder to ensure that tobacco products are not sold to minors. Still, infractions do occur. Those who currently hold private liquor store licences, which generally go to those with pub licences, will be able to move their licences (presumably via sale or lease) into grocery stores.

The current restriction that licences must be for businesses within a fivekilometre limit will be lifted. Wisely, the government recognizes that this move gives an economic benefit to licence holders, and wants them to pay a transfer fee. The standalone stores will be in larger grocery stores, and within the same building — not in standalone buildings, as is the case in Alberta. This makes a lot of sense. Customers will be able to put groceries and liquor in their carts, but must pay for their liquor in designated checkout lines. This move brings an era of civility to liquor sales that we haven’t seen before in B.C. Sales of liquor in grocery stores begin in 2015. B.C. is entering an exciting era of treating liquor as a product to be fully enjoyed with meals and in social settings, in moderation. – Black Press

Port strike has effect on B.C.’s economy Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand A few weeks ago rolling towards town on the freeway, I glanced at the border crossing reader board: only five minutes wait at all crossings. The dollar drop below 95 cents must be having an effect on cross-border shopping, I thought. In the past week, with the dollar diving below 90 cents, the “reader” showed an 80-minute wait at Peace Arch, and high times at the other crossings. I guess, no matter the value of our dollar, there’s no stopping the bargain hunters, though the bargains must be few and far between when the going exchange rate is $1.12 for every item costing a U.S. buck, in addition to taking close to two hours to get to the store. Add in the price of fuel burned idling

at the border, plus the half hour to Bellingham, and the dollar difference increases dramatically. Like gambling, the elusive “big bargain” comes at a price “addicts” are very willing to pay, and wait for. The falling dollar, on the other hand, is great for exports. Except right now, thanks to a major trucker strike at our ports, very little is being exported, or imported for that matter. If the strike is prolonged much longer, it will have a serious effect on the disposable income that is spent in our economy and in the cross-border shopping economy. The port shutdown has already cost 142 direct jobs, and probably more indirect jobs, in Terrace due a mill closure based on the inability to export its product. And with a prolonged strike, all those containers inbound from Asia and other Pacific Rim ports by necessity will soon be redirected to U.S. ports such as Seattle and Long Beach. Thus, on top of our 89 cent purchasing power, we could be paying considerably

more due to shipping from Los Angeles for all those TVs, microwaves and washing machines we get from China, Korea, and Japan. The big concern, at least from an import standpoint, is that once a shipping line begins to offload in U.S. ports

I guess no matter the value of our dollar, there’s no stopping the bargain hunters, though the bargains must be few and far between ... instead of ours, they may keep sending containers there. That, of course, has a huge impact on jobs here, and on the long-term provincial economy. B.C., and to large part Canada, has pegged its current and future economy on Asia-Pacific trade. Due to geography, we are a day or two, or even three, closer in goods transpor-

tation to the high populations of eastern North America. And in international shipping, every day sooner that a product gets to market is money in the bank. In fact, B.C.’s ports, particularly Vancouver and Deltaport, handle $126 million worth of imports every day. That’s $750 million a week, and $2.1 billion of product in total not offloaded since the picket lines went up in late February. Fortunately, massive redirection of cargo to the U.S. has not yet begun. Give it a week or two more and we may see irreversible economic impacts. If there’s an upside to this, commuters, while they still have jobs, will find a lot less traffic on the South Fraser Perimeter Road, the Port Mann, Patullo and other formerly truck-congested routes. Since our ports are under federal jurisdiction, Abbotsford’s Ed Fast, as Minister of International Trade, might want to put a bug in Stephen Harper’s ear to get this strike settled in a timely manner. markrushton@abbynews.com

The biggest problem for garbage incinerators worldwide is that they are running out of combustible garbage for which they pay a considerable penalty. Metro’s committee for this project is called zero waste, but the fact is there will be ash  residues of  close to 20 per cent or more, so  it isn’t really zero at all, is it?

PUBLIC NOTICE Siamak Saidi of Abbotsford, BC and Siamak Saidi Ltd. Siamak Saidi of Abbotsford, British Columbia has resigned his membership in the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia in the face of disciplinary proceedings by the Institute concerning alleged professional misconduct. On January 20, 2014, in criminal proceedings in the BC Criminal Court, Mr. Saidi pleaded guilty to committing fraud over $5,000 and committing forgery. Mr. Saidi’s guilty pleas related to the circumstances that gave rise to the Institute’s disciplinary proceedings against him concerning alleged professional misconduct.

Furthermore,  ash isn’t really a residue, it’s the same garbage reduced to an unusable toxic mass. Anything that could have been recycled now can’t be, so what really will have been achieved? If you don’t want it built, tell them!  Gary Huntbatch Abbotsford

Ash is garbage reduced to a toxic mass Metro Vancouver is still trying to find a site to build a garbage incinerator, which soon, no one but they will want as support is dwindling. But, will they do what is difficult for politicians to do and change their mind? A city in Scotland did and paid a default penalty, which Metro won’t have to because no contract has yet been signed.

Recycled Orchestra performs here May 11 A group of teenagers playing instruments made from trash found on a landfill in Asuncion, Paraguay is coming to Canada to raise funds to create a better future for their community. Global Family Foundation, a Canadian Christian charity, is hosting The Recycled Orchestra for a crossCanada tour this April and May with events in churches, including one in Abbotsford. The tour will raise awareness and funds to build a community education centre in Cateura, home of The Recycled Orchestra and considered one of the poorest slums in South America. More than 2,500 families live directly by the landfill, picking garbage to find sellable or recyclable goods. Turning metal drums, oil cans, spoons, copper pipes, wire and bottle caps into cellos, violins, guitars and flutes, The Recycled Orchestra is proving that despite their circumstances, the community has some-

thing beautiful to offer.

Third Little Free Library set up in Abbotsford

FANTASY FARMS INC. presents

Yard, Garden Garde

Abbotsford News

There’s a new attraction at Mill Lake Park: a little library contained within an old newspaper box. Books are free to take with no return deadlines, and borrowers are encouraged to leave their own books behind to pass along to others. The Little Free Library concept is a global movement with more than 10,000 such libraries to date. “I am proud that Abbotsford is one of the cities that’s going to have one,” said Mayor Bruce Banman at the unveiling of the new library at Mill

Lake on Thursday. “They promote literacy and a love of reading. They promote a sense of community.” The global concept was originally started by a Rotarian, Banman pointed out. And it is the local Rotary Club of Abbotsford-Sumas that has spearheaded installing such little libraries all over the city’s parks. “We’re a service club, and literacy is important to our club,” said Bente Hansen, chair of the club’s literacy committee. “One of our main criteria is to support families and children around Abbotsford.”

Other than at Mill Lake, there are now little libraries at Dave Kandal Park and Saddle Park. More are under development. The Rotary Club is installing the structures – made of old Abbotsford News and Vancouver Sun newspaper boxes – beside the playgrounds that the club installed a few years ago. “What’s amazing is the support that has come from all over the Valley,” said Hansen. The club partnered with the City of Abbotsford to make it happen. It also partnered, crucially, with The

Book Man. The local bookstore donated 1,000 books to stock the Little Free Libraries and replenish supply when it dwindles, an expected result. The initial stock contains books aimed at ages 6–10, but that is expected to diversify quickly as people bring their own books back. One lingering question is what happens if the libraries are vandalized. “That’s the first question most people ask,” said Hansen. Hansen said that the Rotary Club will be continually refuelling the libraries, and

WHY WEAR READING GLASSES? ALINA KONEVSKI Abbotsford News

The newest Little Free Library in Abbotsford has been established in Mill Lake Park.

Libraries in highly visible locations From A15

in so doing will be checking on what’s in stock. One fact that should deter some would-be vandals, added Hansen, is that the libraries are in highly visible locations. She admitted that the club didn’t know how much work

would be required in maintaining the libraries. But if the playground at Mill Lake is any indication, the 10 other playgrounds that the club installed in city parks are in excellent shape. Three classrooms from nearby Godson Elementary came

over to the grand opening on March 13. Kids were curious about the new box and eager to check it out, but no one dared to borrow a book yet. One girl explained the way that it worked was that you had to put a book back in order to take one out.

The BC Government is proposing to offload the province’s world-class recycling programs, run by local municipalities, to an association led by big multi-national corporations. The idea is that we’ll get a better, more efficient program that costs taxpayers less.

Currently, BC homeowners only pay, on average, $35 a year for curbside recycling. Under the proposed regime, you’ll pay more. Every time you bring home a pizza, buy toilet paper,

Unfortunately, what we’ll really end up with is anyone’s guess.

How much more? Well, nobody’s saying.

The association isn’t guaranteeing that we’ll get a better program, or even one as good as the current Blue Box program already in place. Since the association is led by big businesses outside of BC, many of whom are not even headquartered in Canada, one could presume that profits will come before environmental stewardship. They usually do. They also won’t guarantee that there won’t be any job cuts here in BC.

Here’s the only thing anyone does know: we already have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, managed locally and puts the BC environment first. So why is the BC government flipping a coin, bringing in a questionable recycling program that some of our local elected officials are already calling a “scam?”

And how is this supposed to make things better for BC?

or pretty much anything else that comes in a package, businesses will be passing their increased costs on to you.

It’s time to contact Premier Clark and ask her.

What’s going on here?

Concert raises funds for Lazare

A concert with the Abbotsford Men’s Choir takes place March 21 to raise funds for the Lazare Foundation in Abbotsford. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at Bakerview Mennonite Brethren Church, 2285 Clearbrook Rd. Admission is by donation. The Lazare Foundation was started by Michel Munga in 1998 to support children orphaned by AIDS and child soldiers needing to heal in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Lazare built an orphanage to house 75 children, but the facility was flooded by the Congo River in 2006. New land was purchased and construction began, but there have been fundraising challenges, and the orphanage is not yet finished. Children are currently living in the facility and are sleeping and eating on the floor while Lazare tries to raise the funds to install plumbing and electricity and purchase beds and other furnishings. The government ordered Lazare to build a cement brick wall around the orphanage, which further reduced the funds available. But Lazare has had some successes in the meantime, including the placement of 60 orphans in the homes of single mothers. It has also purchased land to grow cassava and other vegetables for the orphanage and to share with single moms.

h Dear Dawn: As explained above, zest is the outer-part of the peel of any citrus fruit - so not the white bitter pith of the peel but the outer coloured part of the peel. This holds a ton of essential oils of the citrus fruit and is screaming with flavour and aroma. In fact it smells more like the fruit than the fruit itself. Use a zester or a fine grater to remove it without removing any of the white bitter part of the peel underneath (the pith).

There are obviously many benefits gained from using the freshest of ingredients possible when cooking, and using the zest from citrus fruits is no exception. Whether you are using limes, lemons, oranges, or grapefruit, the zest from these fruits will not only add an abundance of flavor as an ingredient, but also create a decorative garnish if you choose. I will always remember eating peeled oranges as a child and they still had large pieces of the white part of the peel attached to them and tasted very bitter. This is normal. The pale underside of the peel of any citrus is called the pith. It is always more bitter tasting than the flesh of the fruit or the outer coloured part of the peel, called the zest. There are many ways to include zest as an ingredient. A seafood dish, for example, will always benefit from the addition of lemon zest. Lemon and seafood are a classic combination. Limes are often used in salsas and Mexican cooking so their zest will also enhance many of these types of recipes. Basically a rule of thumb would be to use zest in any recipe that already has citrus juice as an ingredient. This being said, the flavor of an orange chicken stir-fry will taste more complete with addition of orange zest added as an ingredient in the recipe or as a garnish on top of the finished dish. Also zest will compliment many desserts as well. Imagine a piece of spiced pumpkin cake topped with a dollop of whipped cream, delicate curls of bright yellow lemon zest, a vibrant green mint leaf, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. As a garnish, zest will brighten up the appearance of the final plating of your recipe, but should almost always be married up with other contrasting colours. In the cake example above we paired the yellow lemon zest with a green mint leaf and the warm rusty colour of cinnamon. For the orange chicken stir-fry I mentioned, use the orange zest, but maybe some thin diagonal slices of green onion as well.

Your imagination is your playground in the kitchen and you should experiment as much as possible to bring enjoyment and attractiveness to the table. There are basically three ways to remove zest from citrus fruits. Using a knife is one of them but it is not the most effective way, as you always run more of a risk of removing the bitter white pith as well. You are better off using a micro-plane grater or a zester. Micro-plane graters are the ones being used most on TV cooking shows lately. They are small, long graters with very fine teeth. When placed across the top of a bowl and the citrus fruit is rubbed on it, the bowl will capture the fine gratings of the zest. The downside of using one of these graters is that one always runs the risk of grating too far and getting the white bitter pith as well. I find zesters are a much better tool. It is a small handheld tool that has five little circular blades at one end. When it is dragged across a citrus fruit from top to bottom, it produces beautiful curls of zest while leaving the bitter pith behind. The obvious benefit of using a zester is for the long curls that are perfect for garnishing. The downside however, would be that if using zest as an ingredient you would then have a second step of chopping. If you currently do not own either tool, I would recommend buying a zester instead of a grater. The zester is less expensive, gives you garnishing versatility and chances are if you are cooking, you already have a knife and cutting board out, so chopping the zest for an ingredient is not as much of a chore as you may first think. Whichever tool you choose, please remember that you usually get what you pay for. Don’t expect a zester purchased for one dollar to work very well. Buying premium kitchen tools are an investment into the health and enjoyment of home cooked meals. When taken care of properly they will last you a lifetime and thus be well worth the money you paid.

Breakthrough bronze UFV women’s hoopsters third at nationals Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Through the highs and lows of a long season, University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball coach Al Tuchscherer’s message to his players was constant. They were working, he told them, towards playing their best basketball of the season at the end. That vision crystallized on Sunday at the University of Windsor, as the Cascades knocked off the Saskatchewan Huskies 69-57 in the bronze medal game at the Canadian

Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national championship tourney. It’s the first-ever CIS medal for the UFV women’s hoopsters, and the second overall for the Cascades athletic department since the basketball and soccer teams moved up from the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) to the top postsecondary sports league in the land in 2006. The women’s soccer squad won national bronze in 2010. The Huskies had beaten the Cascades in two previous meetings Continued on A24

First national medal in program history From A23

this season – 77-57 in a regular season matchup on Nov. 23, and 67-56 in the Canada West final just eight days prior. But UFV got over the hump on the third try with an incredible display of offensive depth. Only two Cascades –  player of the game and tourney all-star Kayli Sartori (13 points) and Courtney Bartel (12) –  scored in double figures, but eight players notched at least five. And that’s just the way Tuchscherer likes it.

“We’ve definitely got individuals with a lot of ability, but that’s not what our team is about,” he said. “We’ve got multiple weapons on our team and we can hurt you in a few different ways. “It was a total team effort.” In the Canada West final, UFV had led 34-30 at halftime, but the Huskies opened the third quarter on a 16-3 run en route to victory. On Sunday, the Cascades found themselves in a nearly identical situation, leading

30-27 at the break. But this time, UFV owned the third quarter –  they heated up from long range to outscore the Huskies 2513. Nataliia Gavryliuk drained a three-pointer on the Cascades’ first possession, Bartel rained down a trio of triples in quick succession later on, and Sarah Wierks ended the frame with a buzzer-beating trey. UFV kept the suspense to a minimum in the fourth quarter, never letting the lead shrink below nine points.

“It wasn’t about changing our game plan,” Cascades point guard Aieisha Luyken said.  “It was believing in ourselves and believing we had the right tools to get the job done.” UFV bounced back from a 65-45 semifinal loss to the host Windsor Lancers, who went on to win their fourth consecutive national title. Tuchscherer was especially pleased for his fifth-year seniors –  Luyken, Bartel, Nicole Wierks, Sam Kurath and assistant coach Alexa McCarthy, who had her playing career cut short by injury. “They’ve left a fantastic legacy of excellence for future generations of Cascades,” he said. “I’m happy they could go out in that fashion.” For more coverage, visit abbynews.com

A good starting place when doing a spring decluttering is to take a good look at your closets and other storage systems.

A25

Starting the spring cleaning By Kerry Vital Spring has arrived, and the time-honoured tradition of spring cleaning can begin. The best place to start might be your closet. If you’re not sure where to start, having a professional come in and take a look might be a good option. “We see our closet every day and it can be overwhelming,” says Michelle Carnaby, manager

Georgie Award winners take home the gold The best in British Columbia’s residential construction industry are honoured at the annual Georgie Awards. By Kerry Vital Taking home a little golden statue isn’t just for Oscar winners. On Feb. 1, British Columbia’s best residential builders, renovators, designers and marketers were honoured with their own golden prizes at the Georgie Awards. The Georgie Awards are presented by the

Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC, and recognize the best of the best in B.C.’s residential home construction industry. “The excellent work from the winners – and indeed all the finalists – demonstrates that B.C. is truly the leader when it comes to innovative design and quality construction,” says CHBA BC President Rob Capar. This year’s gala ceremony took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, emceed by broadcaster Wayne Cox. Among this year’s big winners was Portrait Homes, who took home five awards. “We have an incredibly talented team that design and build great homes in fantastic

communities,” says Robert Grimm, principal at Portrait. “I couldn’t be more proud of our team for their continued dedication and commitment to being the best they can be!” Portrait was honoured with the Customer Choice Georgie Awards, as well as the awards for Single Family Production Home Builder of the Year and Residential Community of the Year and Best Landscape Design for Hampstead in Maple Ridge. “Potential home owners can be confident in purchasing a Portrait home,” says Grimm. “We are dedicated to looking after our home owners

Like clothing, decor is subject to trends. This spring, old is new again and hot new colours are coming to the forefront. “One of the hot colours this year is called Rare Orchid,” says Sheryn Calvert of Calvert Design Studio. “It’s a purplepink colour that we’re also seeing in fashion.” Calvert notes that fashion is always a big inspiration for home decor, whether it’s colours or fabrics. “Fashion is ahead of us,” she says. “We look to them to see what’s coming up.” Sarah Antonich of Beyond Beige Interior Design is also seeing shades of pink and orchid, along with other floral colours. However, these colours aren’t just for little girls; shades of pink can be easily incorporated into adult furnishings as well, or perhaps via a piece of art or other wall decor item. Another currently trend is all shades of blue, especially navy. Homeowners can incorporate it into their home with accents such as toss pillows. “It’s easy to incorporate trends with small items,” says Calvert. “You don’t have to redo everything. Changing up a few accessories is not that costly.”

Solterra Developments was also well-represented at the Georgies, with their awards for Best Project Identity, Best Multi-Family Kitchen – New and Best Interior Design Display Suite – Single-Family or Multi-Family, all for Keefer Block in Vancouver.

Making it all make sense “ from page. 25 for Stor-More Closet and Blinds. “You may want to close the doors and just ignore it. Sometimes getting a fresh set of eyes is a good thing.” She suggests emptying the closet completely and taking a look at everything you’ve pulled out of it. “If you haven’t worn it in 12 months, you’re not going to wear it,” Carnaby says. “People can be sentimental about their clothes, but if you have a fresh new organizer, why would you put back something you don’t use?” Organizing a closet, or indeed almost anywhere in the home, is about more than functionality. Closet storage has come a long way from the plain white metal shelving and plastic boxes that many grew up with. Now doors, baskets, shelving, rods and racks are all available in a variety of finishes and colors. You can even find dedicated racks for ties, belts, pants and more. Shoe collectors can keep their favourite and most beautiful pairs on display while keeping the others tidied away. “You can also find pull-out laundry hampers, for example,” says Carnaby. “It’s possible to organize almost anything.” However, just because something looks good doesn’t mean it will work for everyone. “Sometimes something that looks pretty isn’t necessarily the most functional,” says Carnaby. “If you have 20 pairs of shoes, you don’t want storage for only 10. You need to have a game plan for what you’re storing.” Storage is also about more than just clothing and shoes. Carnaby says that she often sees people requesting storage for crafting materials, home decor such as holiday decorations, and wrapping paper and bows. “A professional can take your ideas and work with them,” says Carnaby. “There are so many things you can do with a closet now.” Another benefit of having a professionally organized closet is being able to get rid of furniture pieces that can clutter a room by installing drawers and shelving in the closet itself instead of having to store clothing and other items in a chest of drawers. “The possibilities are endless,” Carnaby says.

Where to splurge and save in your kitchen renovation By Kerry Vital Home renovations can be costly, to both your time and your wallet. But not everything has to be top-dollar. Many local experts have plenty of ideas for where you should splurge and where you should save. Kitchens and bathrooms are often two of the most expensive renovations in the home, as well as probably being the rooms used the most. You might be hesitant to choose less expensive options for either space, but it’s the surfaces that you really wouldn’t want to cut corners on. “People use their countertops every day,” says Aaron Woods, marketing manager for FLOFORM Countertops. “You want to spend money on the things you see every day.” Sheryn Calvert of Calvert Design Studio says that the biggest splurge in a home should be the technology, especially when it comes to kitchen appliances. “Steam ovens are a new way of cooking,” she says. “The food retains more flavour, and

you can cook multiple items in a steam oven without transferring the flavours and scents between them. It’s a healthier way of cooking.” It’s also best to splurge on the items that you care the most about. Do you love the look of elegant built-in cabinetry or the most up-todate stainless-steel appliances, for example? The things that make you smile are worth leaving a bit of extra room in the budget for. Calvert also recommends purchasing items that will make your life easier, whether it’s a gadget that you’ll use every day or a storage solution to keep your counters clutter-free. “You want to get things out of your sight,” she says. These things don’t have to be expensive, but any time savings are well worth the cost, especially first thing in the morning. Calvert’s biggest tip for saving in the home is a well-known adage. “I’m a big advocate of reduce, reuse, recycle,” says Calvert. “Reuse and refresh items that you want to bring to life again.”

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

1 2

Focused or Filler: Most electricians prefer new construction or big projects and consider home renovations and repairs an interruption to their day. At Blue Crest Electric we focus on the homeowner. We love home renovations and take great pride in our installations. Our broad scope of knowledge and experience means that troubleshooting and problem solving are our specialty.

3

Invoice Overload: This is what happens when you get a ‘ball-park estimate’ or are charged for ‘time & material’ and the electrician gets paid more the longer he takes to complete the job. At Blue Crest Electric we take exception to this practice. We show you the guaranteed exact amount you’ll pay before the project begins. In most cases we will even provide several cost options so you can choose what is right for your budget.

4 5

Don’t have the parts: Other electricians do not stock their trucks like we do. This usually results in 2, 3 or even 4 trips before your problem is fixed and is all added to the time charged on your invoice. Blue Crest Electric trucks are stocked with more parts so we can fix your problem the first time.

Appointments:

Most electricians don’t make actual appointments. Instead, they say something like, “I’ll be there Tuesday” or “some time next week”. Meanwhile you waste a lot of time waiting, wondering if you should risk going out in case he should show up. When you call Blue Crest Electric for an appointment, we arrange for our actual arrival time so you can go about your day with the least amount of inconvenience, and we keep our appointments. Guaranteed.

Guarantees: Ask other electricians if they guarantee their work, and for how long, and you’re likely to get a blank stare or you should be informed of their ‘concrete guarantee’ which lasts as long as they are standing on your concrete driveway. At Blue Crest Electric, your satisfaction is 111% guar guaranteed. If you’re unhappy with our work for any reason, we’ll redo it. Free. We want you to be more than t just 100% satisfied. We want you to tell your friends good things about us.

including flooring, fabrics and stone, among others. “We’re still seeing a lot of eclectic design,” says Antonich. “A mix of modern, traditional and rustic with an international flair.” “We’re also seeing big architectural lights, like pendant lights,” says Calvert. “They’re simple, refined and not fussy.” Even the metals used in home decor are changing. “Copper and brass metals are coming back,” Calvert says. “But you have to be really careful with that. You don’t want to put in brass faucets in the kitchen for example. You have to use them in a refined, very selective way.” She recommends adding the metals as an accent on a piece of furniture. She recently saw a copper sink that she describes as “stunning” as well as a copper hood fan. “You wouldn’t do the whole house,” she says. “It’s also a more subdued metal than in the past. It’s more of a soft matte brass rather than the shiny one we had before.” Antonich is also seeing a return to oldfashioned metals such as copper, gold and rose gold. “Gold hardware in the kitchen including hood fans” is something new for spring, she says. In the bedroom, Antonich suggest crisp white linens to enhance the airy feeling of a room that should be made for relaxation. Decluttering is the best way to renew your home for spring, Calvert says. “Spring is about rebirth and renewal,” she says. “A William Morris quote that I like is ‘Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful.’ I think that says it all. You want your home to be a refuge.”

coach with the AHL’s Rochester Americans, letting him know the Buffalo Sabres needed him to serve as an emergency backup after Michal Neuvirth aggravated a lower-body injury, the 22-year-old goalie from Abbotsford ex-

But with 3:51 remaining in the second period of the Sabres’ home game against the Montreal Canadiens, Buffalo defenceman Jamie McBain knocked Montreal forward Brendan Gallagher into Sabres starting ’tender Jhonas Enroth. Enroth departed with a lower-body injury, thrusting Lieuwen into the spotlight. The lanky 6’5” keeper acquitted himself well, stopping all 10 shots he faced, but Buffalo lost 2-0 to the Canadiens. “It’s been a crazy ride,” Lieuwen told The News via cellphone on Monday from Calgary, where he was set to make his first career NHL start vs. the Flames on Tuesday night. The result of that game was not available at press time. “We’d played Friday and Saturday (with Rochester), and I was Continued on A31

A b b y Senior held a slender 37-36 lead at halftime, but limited the Ice to just 15 points the rest of the way. The Panthers were led by a trio of senior stars –  Jamie Konrad scored 15 points and added six assists, Sirban Gill notched a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Luke Tompkins had 13 points and nine boards. Moiez Athaya (10 points) also scored in double figures, while

Jordan Goheen (nine points, nine boards) and Chase Claypool (eight points, eight boards, two blocks) chipped in with key baskets and rebounds. Cole Hutchings, with a game-high 18 points, paced the Ice. The Panthers won the Fraser Valley title the previous week for the first time since 1998, and head coach Prentice Lenz, speaking to The News on Friday, termed his squad “a real fun group to coach.” “I’m incredibly proud to be a part of what’s gone on this season and the character they had in the games,” he said. “It’s a special group.” The Panthers placed two players on the tourney all-star teams at provincials. Gill was a first-teamer, while Claypool was on the second team.

pair of unusual suspects led the way. Goalie Olivier Roy, who got the hook in his previous two starts, was outstanding, turning aside 26 of 27 shots. The winning goal was supplied by Brendan Connolly, a mid-week call-up from the ECHL who notched his first career AHL goal with 12 seconds remaining in the second period. Josh Jooris and Derek Smith, into an empty net, also scored for the Heat, while the lone puck to find its way past Roy was a shot by Utica’s Alex Grenier that banked in off Heat centre Ben Street. The victory also snapped a six-game losing skid in head-to-head match-ups against the Comets, the Vancouver Canucks’ affiliate. “It’s huge,” Roy said, reflecting on the significance of the result. “We’ve been having a rough stretch lately, especially against Utica, who came in here before and stole games. They play hard and never quit. We tried to match their intensity today and we did a good job.” On Saturday, the Comets bounced back with a 3-1 win of their own, despite being outshot 39-34. Ex-Heat forward and current Comets captain Colin Stuart scored twice, and goalie Joacim Eriksson turned in a terrific 38-save performance. Brandon DeFazio also scored for Utica, while Street tallied on a twoman advantage in the third period to account for the Abby offence. Continued on A36

Adam Hadwin followed up his first career Web.com Tour victory with a 65th-place finish at the Brasil Champions in Sao Paulo. The 26-year-old Abbotsford golfer got off to a terrific start to Sunday’s fourth round, registering five birdies (and no bogeys) on the front nine. But he struggled on the back nine, sliding down the leaderboard after carding three bogeys and three double bogeys

Dorothy Mae Heinrichs was born in Stuartburn, MB, on September 6, 1941. She was raised in a Christian home on a farm near Manitou, MB. At the age of 9, through listening to Back to the Bible Radio, she learned to put her trust in Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and Lord. She was baptized in 1959 at the Alliance Church in Morden, MB. While Dorothy took most of her high school training in Manitou, she completed her grade 12 at the Steinbach Bible Inst. in Steinbach, MB. It was there that she met the man who would become her husband. She married Randy 2½ years later on May 5, 1961. From 1962 - 2005 Dorothy served with her husband in church planting and pastoral ministries in BC, SK, and MB. In recent years, they served together in Visitation and Senior’s Homes Ministries. Dorothy loved the Lord, and she loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She went home to be with her Savior on March 13 at 11:45. She leaves to cherish her memory one daughter, Val (Mel) Latnie, one son, Vern (Sheena) Heinrichs, 7 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. We look forward to the day we will meet again in glory.

Henderson’s Funeral Home 604-854-5534

Jack was the most amazing Husband, Father and Grandfather. He was taken from us suddenly on a sunny day in Vancouver, doing what he loved best, meeting a colleague and heading to Court. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Lynne, his five precious daughters, Amber (Chris) Beauregard, Krista (Cathy) Harris, Jessica (Barry) Krahn, Anika Harris and Elise (Gerrad) HarrisZandetti; seven grandchildren – Kayden and Chase; Andrew, Lauren and Cruz; Taylor and Jackson. He is also survived by his sister Muriel (Al) Brodin, and niece and nephew – Sherrill (Mike) Yeaton and family and Paul (Leslie) Brodin and family. He also leaves behind his Mother-In-Law Helene (Ernest) Petrich. He was predeceased by his mother and father Isabel and Gilbert Harris. G. Jack, as he was affectionately known, was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB. He graduated from St. John’s College University of Manitoba with a B.A. in 1970 and graduated with a Law Degree from the University of Manitoba in 1973. He received his call to the Bar of British Columbia in 1974. Throughout his outstanding career he practiced in all facets of the Law, but for many years had devoted his time to criminal matters. He was a Bencher of the Law Society of BC for a number of years. In 2008 G. Jack was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from the University of the Fraser Valley, following many years as an instructor in Criminal Law. G. Jack had distinguished himself as a renowned Criminal Lawyer in the province of British Columbia and beyond. He embraced his profession and dedicated countless hours to his clients. G. Jack was a mentor to so many and found it especially rewarding to counsel young people to re-establish themselves. He had no greater reward than to see his former clients achieve success. G. Jack was a great humourist and storyteller and he brought much joy to every experience and situation. The Courtroom was his theatre. He valued each and every person who worked in the Criminal Justice System, and was a friend to all. He will be fondly remembered as a person who gave selflessly to others and came to the rescue of so many.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) on Saturday March 22 at 12:00pm. In honour of G. Jack, donations to the BC Children’s Hospital Heart Centre would be greatly appreciated.
