What next for arena? American management exodus; hockey unlikely for next year

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Days after the announcement that the Abbotsford Heat will be leaving the city – for a $5.5-million contract payout – more changes are in the works for the former Abbotsford

Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC). Sources indicate the facility’s operating company, Global Spectrum, will move its American staff back to the U.S. Both general manager Jason Blumenfeld and assistant general manager Jacque Holowaty are from the States.

Dean Clarke, regional vice-president for the Philadelphia-based company, said that as the company looks for ways to cut costs, the “repatriation of Americans is certainly an option and will save us some of our indirect costs.” Continued on A5

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Police are troubled by three suspicious fires that occurred within hours of each other on Wednesday. Const. Ian MacDonald said investigators have not determined whether the fires are linked, but their proximity and the time frame has raised concerns. The heaviest damage occurred to an abandoned home and garage in the 32000 block of Hillcrest Avenue. Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service crews were called to the scene at about 3 a.m. and quickly put out the flames, but there was extensive damage. There are several vacant homes in that area which are scheduled for demolition. A second fire was reported at 4:25 a.m. in the 32300 block of Marshall Road at the Red Apple Food Store, which has some residential suites. A resident of the building awoke, heard some noise and spotted the fire, which had begun at the outside rear of the structure. There was some damage, but none of the seven occupants were injured. A third fire was discovered when employees arrived at work at a bank in the 2500 block of Clearbrook Road. MacDonald said the fire had started in an outside covered area but didn’t spread, and caused minimal damage. Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225. MAZDA 3

WHL allows Abby potential Canucks’ AHL farm team “committed” to Utica

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The commissioner of the Western Hockey League (WHL) says the major junior circuit has interest in Abbotsford as a potential market. But Ron Robison qualified that statement by noting that the WHL is not open to expansion

at this point, and does not have any pending applications for relocation from existing franchises. In any event, the league wouldn’t be able to get a franchise into Abbotsford in time for the 2014-15 season. “Like everyone else, we just became aware that market will be

available,” Robison told The News, referring to Tuesday’s announcement that the City of Abbotsford would pay $5.5 million to terminate the final five years of its supply fee contract with the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League (AHL). “We are familiar with

the building – it’s an outstanding facility, and it’s a market we have interest in. At this particular stage, we do not have any future plans for expansion, so the only way we would consider Abbotsford would be through the relocation of one of our existing teams. “But having said that, we always continue to look to explore other options in the event we do have a request for relocation. Certainly we’ll put Abbotsford on our list and do some further due diligence as to its potential for a WHL franchise.” Robison said that the WHL’s deadline for relocation applications is Jan. 31, and while the league will consider requests to move after that date under “special circumstances,” it’s too late in the year to get a team into Abbotsford for this fall. The WHL, which features players age 20 and under, is familiar with the Fraser Valley market – the Chilliwack Bruins played in the league from 2006 to 2011 before being sold to a group from Victoria and moved to the B.C. capital. “Having two franchises of similar calibre in the American League and the Western League in close proximity ... presented some challenges for our Chilliwack franchise,” Robison said. “On a stand-alone basis, we believe that the Fraser Valley area can support a WHL franchise.” The economics of the WHL in Abbotsford would be far different than the AHL. Travel was a large part of the Heat’s $5.7-million annual operating budget, owing to their far-flung location relative to the rest of the league, and the fact they had to cover opposing teams’ travel costs to play here. In the WHL, teams travel by bus rather than by plane, and there

are currently six teams in B.C. – the Vancouver Giants, Victoria Royals, Kelowna Rockets, Kamloops Blazers, Prince George Cougars and Kootenay Ice – and four in Washington state. Robison said Abbotsford would be “a mid-market classification in our league,” and estimated that an annual operating budget would be around $3 million. At Tuesday’s press conference, Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman expressed openness to interest from the WHL, and said he hasn’t closed the book on having an AHL team in town, providing it was revenue-positive for the city. AHL commissioner David Andrews wasn’t available for comment this week, but it seems unlikely that Abbotsford could land another AHL team in time for the coming season. Last year, the City of Abbotsford announced on April 22 that its negotiations to land the Vancouver Canucks’ AHL affiliate had stalled, citing “time constraints” among the factors. As for the Canucks, they ended up moving their top farm team to Utica, N.Y. after talks with Abbotsford broke down. They just completed the first year of a reported six-year agreement, and issued a statement this week affirming their commitment to the Utica market. “The Vancouver Canucks are committed to our AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets, and enjoy a strong relationship with our partner club,” the statement read. “A strong base of Utica fans have shown tremendous support throughout the season and the Canucks intend to honour our long-term partnership agreement with the Comets.”

AESC timeline 2006 Q Council votes to send Plan A initiative to referendum to approve borrowing of $85 million for three civic projects, including The Reach Gallery Museum, an expansion to the Abbotsford Recreation Centre, and a 7,000-seat spectator arena, accounting for $66 million of the loan. Q Voter turnout for the referendum is 24 per cent, with 55 per cent in favour. 2007 Q Construction contract for proposed new facility awarded to PCL Contractors Westcoast Inc. , the sole bidder after others withdraw. Q Underground solvent spill discovered on arena land. Clean-up is $1.8 million.

Q Total cost of Plan A projects set at $108 million. 2008 Q Official ground-breaking on the AESC – construction begins. 2009 Q City signs a 10-year facility operations agreement with Global Spectrum, at a base rate of $150,000 per year. Q City signs a 10-year deal with Calgary Flames’ AHL affiliate team. Agreeement guarantees team $5.7 million annual break-even revenue to play in the AESC. Q Final cost of Plan A put at $115 million, including AESC. 2009 to 2014 Q Arena attracts a variety of top perfomers and shows, including Kiss, Carrie Underwood and Cirque du Soleil, a number of which were sell-outs. 2014 Q City of Abbotsford renames the building to Abbotsford Centre and announces plan to pursue naming rights and new strategies.

Annual costs

Q Approximately $2 million to cover arena deficit Q  About $4 million to pay debt principal ($1.5 million) and interest ($2.5 million) for 25-year loan

At a Tuesday press conference, Mayor Bruce Banman announced the city will pay the Calgary Flames $5.5 million to terminate the remaining five years of a 10-year supply fee agreement, signed in 2009 to bring the Flames’ AHL-affiliate to Abbotsford. He also said the AESC will now be called the Abbotsford Centre, and the management agreement with Global Spectrum will be renegotiated. Global is five years into a 10-year deal with the city. Abbotsford city manager George Murray said negotiations are ongoing and are expected to be completed in July. Currently, there are few details as to what the new deal with Global Spectrum will entail. Murray said the city is looking to “be a true partner in the operation of the centre, where financial risks and rewards will be shared (with Global Spectrum).” Clarke acknowledged that the city has new priorities and strategies. “We’re supporting what the city wants to do. We want to be there, we want to be seen as a community partner, and we’re trying to achieve a dynamic agreement that helps us generate more revenue and reduce costs.” The deal with the Heat cost taxpayers about $12.7 million over the past five years, including the $5.5-million buyout. In addition to those costs, the arena has run a deficit of about $2 million each year since it was built in 2009, with the 2013 subsidy estimated at $2.3 million, including staffing costs. Murray said most

recreation facilities don’t make money, such as the Abbotsford Recreation Centre and the Matsqui Recreation Centre, and the Abbotsford Centre will likely be the same. The $2 million annual deficit is expected to be lower in the future, as Murray said, “our expectation is that we are going to run a world-class facility at the least cost to the ratepayer.” He said lowering the arena’s shortfall will involve increased community access,

such as hockey and skating events, and more streamlined operations at Global Spectrum. Murray said there is currently high demand for recreation space in Abbotsford and the city currently buys ice time from Centre Ice, a private facility. The city is also still paying down the debt incurred to build the facility – approximately $4 million annually, including loan interest and principal. Those payments will

continue for 20 more years. Clarke said that with the anchor tenant gone – and currently no new hockey team lined up for the facility – the arena may be quieter, but he does not anticipate it will lead to an additional loss in revenue for the facility. Global Spectrum is a subsidiary of the international sports and entertainment firm C o m c a s t - S p e c t a t o r, and is Canada’s largest facility management company.

A distraught man waving a knife was shot Wednesday afternoon by Abbotsford Police using non-lethal guns. The incident began at about 2:15 p.m., when police received calls about a man brandishing a large knife and yelling in the parking lot of the Abbotsford Food Bank at 33914 Essendene Ave. Officers arrived on scene, but the man refused to comply with their commands, said Abbotsford Police spokesman Ian MacDonald. He said police had to subdue the man using nonlethal guns which shoot rubber bullets and beanbag rounds. The 57-year-old man, who was not seriously injured, was transported to hospital for treatment and a mental-health assessment. A man who witnessed the take-down from the street said there were about eight officers surrounding the man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cops were shouting, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get down on the ground!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;Ś I heard them say it three times,â&#x20AC;? he said. The witness said officers had their guns trained on the man, and he saw an officer who was standing at the end of the driveway fire a gun. The suspect fell to the ground and then tried to get up, while cursing at the officers. The man was ordered to stay on the ground, and the witness left the scene before observing anything further. MacDonald said police are continuing to investigate the incident, which took place in the busy downtown core, and are appealing for more witnesses to come forward. He said several witnesses on the scene were observed with smartphones in their hands, and police are requesting a copy of photos and/or images of the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).

Heat leaving Abby Lane Sweeting outlines all the concerns that the owners had, or should have had before this bad investment, yet they still went ahead with this fiasco. Very few taxpayers put us in this position (referendum turnout low) which is a tragedy in itself. Were we snowed or what! Barry Bodell The problem with the AHL in Abby (and I predicted as much when the Heat arrived) is there is no connection to other teams in the league. How the heck can Abby hockey fans get excited about Rockford, Lake Erie, El Paso and Houston? When the nearest club is half a continent away, there is no rivalry; there is no context. The WHL would work. Christopher Foulds It’s too bad we lost so much money. But honestly, it was a bad idea to begin with by bribing a rival hockey club farm team here. Oh well, at least we aren’t in the news for spraying the homeless with chicken manure again. Yay, Abbotsford council! Hildegaard Hiebert

RECIPE CONTEST

Happy now with Heat loss? All I can say is, are you happy now Abbotsford for the loss of the Abbotsford Heat? It is with great sadness to hear time and time again that the Heat are not wanted or they’re the farm team to Calgary. This was our team representing Abbotsford and we should

all have been on board in supporting this team. I believe there will never be another opportunity like this again in our city. What a sad day for those of us who enjoyed the great talent and exciting hockey. Ernie Fankhanel, Abbotsford

Freedom through dissenting minorities The controversy about Trinity Western University’s proposed law school is now over. Now that the directors of the Law Society of BC have decided to accept TWU graduates, three key points should be made. First, since The Federation of Law Societies of Canada approved the TWU proposal, the B.C. body had no reason to be opposed. Second, at present,

many universities in the U.S. and elsewhere have similar faith and conduct requirements – they have produced fine attorneys. Third, the argument that TWU graduates could not be good lawyers because they have agreed to a university policy upholding traditional marriage is deeply flawed. The TWU policy deals with behaviour while the students are at TWU, not with a life-

long commitment. Further, as every lawyer knows, concerning any social policy, whether rooted in the constitution, the Charter, or legislation, numerous lawyers are in opposition. Freedom prescribes diversity, and social progress has come through dissenting minorities, not by imposition of views by majorities. John H. Redekop Abbotsford

A man who helped a woman try to kill herself was sentenced on Tuesday in Abbotsford provincial court to two years and three months in prison. Kenneth William Carr, 55, received two years’ credit for time already served, leaving three

months on his sentence. This will be followed by three years of probation. Carr pleaded guilty last October to aiding/ abetting a person to commit suicide. Carr was charged in September 2012 after a 48-year-old woman showed up at the Abbotsford Police Department with liga-

ture marks around her neck. The woman had met Carr not long before the incident, and was urged to go to police by a family member who noticed the marks on her neck. Information to obtain (ITO) a search warrant documents later filed in Abbotsford provincial court indicated that the

woman suffered from depression and anxiety disorder, and Carr offered to help her commit suicide after she said she was sick of being a burden to her family. He told her he knew a lot about suicide and could assist her using a rope, which would not show fingerprints, the documents stated. According to the ITO, Carr had the woman prepare a suicide note and then gave her white pills, rigged a rope from the rafters in his home, placed it over her head, and had her stand on a chair so he could push her off. The victim later told police that she awoke the next day, and Carr told her he had stopped the hanging when she asked him to. He then drove her home. The ITO indicated that, in the basement suite where Carr lived, investigators found a room with ropes suspended from a ceiling. The documents also stated that images of a naked man and a woman hanging and appearing lifeless were found on a cellphone in Carr’s home, launching an investigation into a possible murder. Carr told police that the people in the cellphone images were still alive and had been made to look like they were dead in the photos. Police investigated the photos in more detail, and no murder charges were laid. Carr previously served time for manslaughter in relation to the 1997 death of Port Coquitlam teen Kathryn Kaminski. The teen was found lying face down with a rope around her neck between two sets of train tracks in New Westminster. The ITO stated that during the investigation into Kaminski’s death, a police search of Carr’s work locker turned up 28 photos of women – some naked and some partially dressed – in various poses. Two of the photos depicted women hanging with a noose around their necks. Carr has been in custody since his arrest in September 2012.

Pilots struggle in Keystone opener Cup, emblematic of B.C. provincial supremacy, last weekend. “We got in at two in the morning and got up early . . . so we were just hoping to get our legs moving underneath us. We struggled a little bit (in the first period), but once we got that first goal, it seemed to ignite us.” The Nitehawks and Pilots spent the bulk of the first period locked in a scoreless tie, but Beaver Valley got goals from Calvin and Taylor Stafford 19 seconds apart late in the frame. Mitch Foyle made it 3-0 for the visitors early in the second, before Jarrett Martin got Abby on the board by chipping in a rebound off Ryan Parmar’s initial shot. But Calvin tallied on the power

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks stated their case as potential favourites at the Keystone Cup, blasting the host Abbotsford Pilots 10-2 in the opening game of the Western Canadian junior B hockey championship tournament. Dallas Calvin led the offensive onslaught with a four-goal outing on Thursday morning at Abbotsford Recreation Centre. The round-robin portion of the tourney continues through Saturday, followed by the bronze (10 a.m.) and gold (1 p.m.) medal games on Sunday. “We didn’t know what to expect,” said Beaver Valley coach Terry Jones, whose team won the Cyclone Taylor

Eric Wieking tacked on a late goal for Abbotsford. “The first two periods, the shots were pretty even,” Pilots coach Jim Cowden mused. “In the third period, we just died. We hadn’t played in five and a half weeks. “That’s a good team . . . and we were kind of a step behind.” The Keystone tourney also features the Blackfalds Wrangers

(Alta.), Saskatoon Quakers (Sask.), Selkirk Fishermen (Man.) and Thunder Bay Northern Hawks (Northern Ont.).

DID YOU KNOW? The red building on our Trethewey House Heritage Site was originally the Upper Sumas BC Electric Railway station. The station’s original location was on the corner of Vye and Lamson roads. The Railway Line, which skirted the southern shore of Sumas Lake, was completed from New Westminster to Chilliwack in 1910. The back of the station rested on a stilt construction and railway tracks along Sumas Lake were raised due to flooding in times of high water.

The beauty of Bhangra Recognized as the man who enlivened a new movement of bhangra music, the multi-talented Punjabi star, Babbu Maan is performing at the Abbotsford Centre on April 20. Born in India in the village of Khant Maanpur, Maan became very fond of music early in his life, and sang onstage for the first time at the age of seven. After years of learning how to write lyrics and honing his performance skills, he recorded his first album at 23. Now, as a singer-songwriter, actor and producer, Mann has remained busy since bursting onto the Punjabi mainstream in the late ‘90s. He debuted his album Sajjan Ruman De Giya in 1998, but was unhappy with the outcome and rewrote many of the songs. He followed it with the release of his first official debut album Tu Meri Miss India  in 1999, which sold well in both India and abroad. However, it wasn’t until his third album Saaun Di Jhadi (2001) that his career took off, selling over 10 million copies in India and overseas.

He has since released a total of eight additional studio albums, six compilation albums and contributed to numerous Bollywood film soundtracks.

Maan is sure to bring his wide range of musical and performing talents to the stage.

In summer 2013, Maan released Talaash: In Search Of Soul, his first album to break the Billboard 200 charts. His newest album release, the second volume of Aah Chak 2014, is being met with growing acclaim and enthusiasm.

Maan began incorporatting acting into his repertoire re soon after launching his s music career, and in 2003 3 was selected as an actor and d music director for the highly successful movie Hawayein. Maan went on to co-write and d act in various other Punjabi bi films, including the biggest filmography accomplishment of his career, Maan’s own feature, “Hashar…A ar…A Love Story.” Maan is sure to bring his wide range of musical and performing talents to the Abbotsford Centre stage, e, and will impress spectators with the e beauty of bhangra.

Rainy day

TIPS & TRICKS While we can’t control the weather, we can certainly keep our hair and makeup looking perfect on those rainy BC days. Here are some hair and makeup tips to keep you looking great.

AVOID THE DRAMA Opt for an easier, more natural look instead of something more dramatic. A smoky eye can be a pain to clean up if it gets wet!

QUICK FIXER-UPPERS Makeup wipes, beauty blender sponges, and cotton swabs are great little extras to pack in your on-the-go makeup bag. These are perfect for quick little touch-ups once you reach your destination.

OUTSMART YOUR FRIZZY LOCKS Want to wear your hair down but don’t want it to turn into a frizzy mess once you’ve stepped out the door? Style it as normal, then wrap it in a bun and take it down once you are inside. You will get a soft wave without the pontytail marks and bumps.

CREAM VS. POWDER Opt for cream-based products instead of powder. Creams have longer staying power and can be blended more easily. When powder gets wet, it tends to streak.

FAVE FINDS! TOP TO BOTTOM: Nuxe Multi Purpose Dry Oil; No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes; Quo Blending Sponge; Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-on Cream Make up; Pur Minerals Cream Eyeshadows. All products available at Shopper’s Drug Mart.

Perfecting the cat-eye

STEPS: 1. Position yourself straight on in the mirror. 2. Tilt your chin upwards and look down into the mirror. 3. Start drawing at the outside corner of your eye. Draw your ‘wing’ up toward the outer edge of your eyebrow. Repeat on other eye.

4. Dip the cotton swab in the eye makeup remover. Use the swab to make your eyes symmetrical and correct any harsh marks. 5. Once you have completed your ‘wing’, finish applying your eyeliner and connect the lines. This is where you control how thick or thin you want your cat eye to be. The thicker the more dramatic the effect.

Your personal-style and wardrobe choices are good indicators of colours, patterns and styles you love. If you’ve never been a big fan of yellow, then you probably won’t like it on your walls.

DO THE MATH. When choosing your colour scheme, keep the 60-30-10 rule in mind. Essentially, you want 60% of the room a unifying colour, for instance your wall colour. 30% visual y. interest — your secondary colour, pattern or upholstery. And 10% sparkle-factor; these are your personal-touchess or the room’s jewelry.

JUST ADD BLACK. cBy adding a black element, such as a lampshade or picture frame, you enhance the other colours in the room.

TAKE IT FOR A TEST RUN. e Ask for a fabric samples! Leave them in the room you are o decorating for a couple of days. Pay careful attention to e how they look during the times when the room will be used most and under different types of lighting.

Simple ways to stop overeating Adapting to a healthy diet and smaller portions is a challenge. It’s important to avoid consuming more food than your body needs. The following are a few simple ways to curtail eating habits so you aren’t going overboard at mealtime.

We can help you hear better!

CALL FOR A FREE SCREENING & CONSULTATION! • No more worries about buying and handling batteries with rechargeable hearing aids.

EAT WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY. The symptoms of hunger tend to present themselves within five hours of eating a balanced meal. Ignoring these symptoms is a mistake. The longer you ignore hunger, the less likely you are to make healthy choices, including eating healthy portions. Even a low-calorie, healthy snack four to five hours after a meal can sate your appetite and prevent you from overeating when you sit down for your next meal.

• Water, dust and shock resistant hearing aids.

EAT BREAKFAST. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Studies show that those who ate more carbohydrates, fat and protein

in the morning were more likely to eat less over the course of the day than those who saved their biggest meals for lunchtime or dinner. If time is limited in the morning, keep cereal or instant oatmeal at the office and eat breakfast as you catch up on emails.

mimic those of hunger. Instead of immediately responding to perceived hunger symptoms by eating, drink a glass of water. If the symptoms subside within 10 minutes, then you were likely dehydrated and not hungry. Staying hydrated throughout the day will reduce the likelihood that you will confuse dehydration with hunger.

The longer you ignore hunger, the less likely you are to make healthy choices.

FIND TIME FOR FIBER. Fiber helps you feel full faster and for longer periods of time. In addition, highfiber foods tend to be high-volume as well, so you will fill up on them without eating lots of calories. That’s a benefit to people looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

STAY HYDRATED. It’s easy to mistake dehydration for hunger, as the symptoms of dehydration

Overeating is a hurdle many people must clear as they attempt to adopt healthier lifestyles. But a few simple tricks makes it easy to avoid overeating without fighting constant feelings of hunger.

HELPING HAND

Go-to person for cancer information Suzanne Froese has been volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society for more than 13 years now. She’s a familiar face in the Abbotsford Unit Office, where she’s an integral part of keeping things running. In particular, Froese is the go-to person for any cancer information and literature people may require after hearing they have cancer or a loved one has been diagnosed. Her friendly manner and caring attitude have proven to be a wonderful support to many people in the community. “Like so many people, cancer has touched my life. Members of my family and some close friends have been diagnosed,” says Froese. “ I do what I can to support those on their cancer journey. As a volunteer, I hear so many personal stories about how cancer has affected people’s lives and I feel it’s a real privilege to listen to their stories and maybe help out in some small way.” Froese doesn’t just donate her

time at the office. Like many Society volunteers, she can be tireless in the contribution of her time. You’ll find her helping out at community fundraising events like Relay For Life and promoting healthy choices and sharing cancer prevention information at events and community fairs.

It makes me proud to know how many people want to show their support and give back.

During Daffodil Month in April, Froese assists with the coordination of campaign. Calling volunteers and distributing door to door kits, she

is making it simple for everyone to join the fight and show their support by buying a pin “As a volunteer, I’m so proud when I start seeing the daffodil pinned on people’s lapels,” says Froese. “I imagine the same thing happening here in Abbotsford is also happening in other towns and cities across Canada. It makes me proud to know how many people want to show their support and give back.” Froese hopes, one day, the world will be cancer free and she’ll have worked herself out of a job. The Abbotsford Community Office is looking for volunteers to assist with office activities, events and awareness campaigns. They have recently moved to 100A-32660 George Ferguson Way, and the office is open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about the Canadian Cancer Society, feel free to drop by or email abbotsford@ bc.cancer.ca.

Running for a cause PHILLIP ELLIS OWNER/OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST PENINSULA RUNNERS

Peninsula Runners opened its first store 18 years ago in White Rock. One of the big goals of the store was to help make their community a healthier and fitter place by hosting running clinics and local running events. Phil Ellis the managing partner of the store says “the idea was to be a running store for everybody... any level of walker, runner or fitness enthusiast!” Peninsula Runners Langley opened in 2001 and the Abbotsford location opened almost three years ago. Peninsula Runners has recently come on board as a silver sponsor of the Envision Financial Run For Water. “We really like to focus on being a local store,” Phil told me. One of the virtues of this focus is that as a business Peninsula

has become a real stakeholder in the communities where it is rooted. “We put on events for runners; we put on a lot of clinics; we spearheaded efforts in South Surrey to build a public track. We really try to make a special effort to help people find enjoyment through the sport.” As a business that focuses on running, Peninsula Runners has a natural tie-in with Run for Water. But Phil says their sponsorship is about more than a business-related affinity. “I remember when Run for Water first started and I was amazed at how successful it was, even the first couple of years. I thought it was a really positive event. We wanted to become involved and we’ve always promoted the event. Even before we became an official sponsor, we knew it was a good thing for the community.” Run for Water also appeals to

Peninsula Runners in virtue of the movement’s global emphasis. “Most definitely it appeals to us,” Phil said of the goal to raise money for clean water projects in Africa. “Myself, I’m a big water guy; that’s my drink! As a runner you kind of have to drink water, right? So for me, the availability of water is so important. I would have a hard time living in a place where I didn’t have access to fresh water. So I can only imagine the difficulties faced by the people we’re trying to help. Water is the key to life.” Nicely capturing Envision Financial Run for Water’s emphasis on global citizenship, Phil summed up by saying, “I think it is a great cause. Of course we have local issues that we need to address, but the globe is small. You need to have a global consciousness these days. Our problems are shared problems and we need to do what we can to help each other.”

The Farmer and the Foodie The unpredictability of life means that obstacles will always arise that require creativity to overcome. In recent years, unknown to many consumers, too many of our quality BC pork farmers have shut down due to the increasing economic pressures caused by the cyclical nature of the industry. As second generation hog farmers, it meant that with the growing awareness of choosing local food, the time was right for us to re-invent ourselves as farmers and for the landmark green corn shack to “grow up”!   Lepp Farm Market was created to bring our customers the best of BC’s foods, including our beloved pork, as well as provide a future farming opportunity for our children. When

you purchase our pork chops or fresh sausages, you can be assured that the pork was raised in the barns right behind the market, and we’ve eliminated routinely administered antibiotics and animal by-products in the feed. I can confidently state that the remaining producers are determined and optimistic, and are working with renewed enthusiasm to meet the growing pork needs of BC’s diners. This industrious group is able to supply only 10% of BC’s pork, so if you’re committed to buying local and supporting BC farmers, you’ll just have to look a little harder to find the BC Pork logo on your Easter ham and favorite smoky EXP bacon!

STUDENT LIFE

April: the month of theatre, design, and all-around creativity STUDENT PICK:

NICK

WHAT ARE YOU STUDYING: Business WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON CAMPUS? Library Rotunda at the Abbotsford campus. ANY TIPS FOR NEW STUDENTS? Engage your professors. Ask lots of questions.

DESSA BAYROCK STUDENT UNIVERSITY OF THE FRASER VALLEY

April is practically art month in the UFV community as year-long projects burst into bloom. From theatre to fashion to graphic design, everything seems to culminate in the busy, beautiful month of April. One of my favourite spring moments — aside from spotting the first snowdrop poking up from the ground — is the opening day of UFV Theatre’s Director’s Festival. Fondly known as Dfest, an audience can fit a dozen shows into just a couple days with a little planning. The shows vary from comedy to tragedy, absurd to hilarious, tear-jerking to gutwrenching to knee-slapping. Most

are only a half-hour long, and at $5 a show they form the perfect bite of theatre to work into any schedule. This year the curtains open on April 23, hosted as always at UFV’s Yale Road campus in Chilliwack. Something else to check out this month is the grad show of UFV’s fashion design students. Personally, I’m never going to make it to Milan — or even New York — to see a fashion show hit the runway. But anyone can taste a little haute couture in the Fraser Valley with a ticket to UFV’s Absolute Fashion runway on April 29. The outfits range from beachwear to winter layers and from practical to fantastical. Speaking of fantastical, my absolute favourite Absolute Fashion contribution of all time was Laura Auffray’s collection in 2012,

which included costuming odes to Star Wars and The Hunger Games. Last but not least, UFV’s first ever graphic design graduates will present their portfolios at Abbotsford’s The Reach Museum and Gallery on April 24. The Mission-based diploma program is still brand new, and this first graduating class has proudly renamed themselves. “Green is new and fresh. It’s where we’re from, and where we’re headed,” their website reads. “We are Green, the first class of graphic designers in the Fraser Valley.” As spring shoots and blooms peek their heads out of the ground, there’s no better way to banish winter than by including a little UFV creativity into your April.

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark.com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount. Take the test, go to school and thank me later.

Zack Spencer

The introduction of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee showcased the direction of the new Fiat-Chrysler partnership. It went on to win more awards that any other SUV; in fact, I chose it as one of my favourite vehicles

that year. Sales have been strong for not only Jeep but the entire Chrysler group. Freshness has been into each new vehicle and this latest 2014 EcoDiesel version is another example. For this model year, the Grand Cherokee gets a refreshed front and rear, plus interior tweaks and a thrifty diesel under the hood.

$3,000 more than a V6 model but the same price as the V8. The top of range Summit diesel starts at $62,000. In comparison, the base VW Touareg diesel starts at $55,000 but most of the other German mid-sized SUVs with a diesel, like the ML from Mercedes or the X5 from BMW also start in the low $60,000 range.

Looks

Inside

The most noticeable updates for 2014 include a thinner front grille, narrower front headlights with LED accents. This really makes the latest model pop; especially when you compare it to the last model. The EcoDiesel option is only available in two trim levels, and this an expensive vehicle. The Overland is the cheapest diesel and it starts at roughly $58,000,

One of the biggest changes at Chrysler has been the attention to detail now placed on interior design and refinement. The latest U-connect computer interface is one of the best in the business; many highend makers could learn a thing or two from Chrysler. The large 8.4-inch screen is one of the biggest on the market and it is very quick to the touch, going from

one function to the next is logical and responsive. Pairing a smartphone takes under 30 seconds and the best feature is the map screen, which enables the embedding of a picture in the same way as picture-in-picture TV does. The dash is covered in stitched leather and the cabin overall is elegant. All EcoDiesel models come with leather seats and the back seats can even be heated.

Drive The biggest change for 2014 is the introduction of an all-new 3.0-litre direct inject turbocharged V6 diesel engine along with an 8-speed automatic. With 420 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine just rockets away from a light and cruises effortlessly on the highway. continued on page 36

I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

“The buyer smelled a bargain. He thought I was the fool!”

Alexandra Straub For as long as Alexandra Straub recalls, she has loved cars. She can even remember thinking at the age of six, “Only ten more years until I can get my licence!” Born in Zurich, Switzerland to Hungarian parents, she moved to Canada when she was just a baby. Spending her summers in Budapest with her grandparents helped cultivate a strong liking for motorsports. Alexandra can remember watching F1 races with her grandfather, and still does even when she goes to visit. Over a decade ago, Alexandra started her career in the automotive industry. Since then, she has had countless stories and photos published. You can find her work online, in newspapers, magazines and on television. She has hosted “Shifting Gears Automotive TV” and regularly makes appearances on various shows talking about, you guessed it, all things automotive. When she’s not testing out the latest in vehicular goodness, you’ll either find her on a motorcycle (she tests and writes about those, too), on a track or traveling the world. While she considers her “job” her hobby, Alexandra enjoys other activities that don’t necessarily involve wheels, engines or motors. Growing up on the North Shore of Vancouver, she loves the mountains and the ocean. An avid snowboarder and a wannabe surfer, count on her enjoying the outdoors when she has the chance. And to really help her relax, she scrapbooks. Share your thoughts and requests with Alexandra at alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Grand Cherokee slightly over priced and not a long enough track record continued from page 34

There is a big premium to get this engine over a V6, or lower trim level V8 gasoline versions, but there are some compelling reasons to choose it. Fuel economy is number one. This heavy truck is rated at 9.8 L/100km in the city and only 7.0L on the highway. With aggressive driving and mostly city, I averaged 12L. I did notice on highway runs that the fuel economy improved radically. The towing capacity of the EcoDiesel is the same as the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 at 7,200 lbs, but this truck gets

substantially better fuel economy. For those who drive a lot without a trailer, the improvement in fuel economy is something to factor in. If you don’t drive a lot each year, the diesel option might not be worth the added cost.

Verdict Chrysler considers the Jeep Grand Cherokee a premium offering but I would not put this on par with the Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q5 or a very nicely equipped VW Touareg. It is a very nice truck with as much diesel power and efficiency as the competition but the German brands have been at the whole diesel thing a lot longer and are a known entity in

the market. The Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel would be a very easy choice if it were about $50,000, not $58,000. If you drive a lot or tow, the diesel might be worth it, but as it stands now, the already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness.

By Keith Morgan

People that talk and text on their hand-held smartphones while driving are not nearly as smart as their technology of choice. There you go; I have made my position clear on the current red-hot driving topic of the day in the letters pages of every newspaper and on radio talk shows coast to coast. However, that does not mean I am offering my unqualified support for the countrywide torrent of get-even-tougher legislation, designed to pick the pockets of delinquent drivers. Currently in BC, the fine is $167 and last year police here issued 51,000 tickets for distracted driving. Victoria knows a vote winner when it sees one and it is pondering a big fine hike

$

$

and additional demerit points. The local action comes on the heels of Ontario introducing legislation last month that increases fines from the already high $300 to $1,000. Fanning the public outrage, BC Attorney General Suzanne Anton announced that distracted driving is killing more British Columbians than impaired driving. Forgive my cynicism, but I really question the sudden rush of statistics showing how heinous and deadly a crime this is. I have always advocated for hands-free calling while driving and figured “driving without due care and attention” was a sufficiently good catch-all charge for those causing a collision during hands-on operation of a cellphone. The fine is $368.

HAPPY

EASTER!

Campaigns for smarter drivers a good plan for distracted drivers

vres with phone in hand it’s a little too convenient to blame it all on operation of the device. Much of the current public debate was spurred by the revelation that a serial offender in Vancouver racked up 26 tickets and fines of $4,300 for distracted driving since 2010. He may be the pin-up boy for those seeking tougher penalties but interestingly, it appears he never once caused an accident during the time he was caught in cellular action! Now the law is in force, I’ve no problem in accepting it but let’s not kid ourselves into thinking this will stop idiots such as this overly chatty man continuing to take risks on the road that threaten us all. The fines are already high enough to deter regular drivers who are tempted to err occasionally. That said; I do worry about how zealously this law is enforced. I frequently hear of tickets issued to drivers who mere glance at their device while at a red light or move it to a new resting place around the dash. I fear the debate about the fines is a distraction in itself from getting to the heart of dangerous driving. Therefore, I am pleased to hear Anton is also considering public education campaigns on distracted driving, similar to previous initiatives targeting seatbelt use and drinking and driving. That is smarter. Research shows that many distractions contribute to road carnage. Be careful what you wish for because there are other technological distractions in our vehicles that could invite

OBITUARIES

STRANGWARD, Lloyd Louis

DANIEL, HARMENY 1958 - 2014 Harmeny Daniel, nee Maw, Vissers, artist, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and aunt (Honey). Harmenyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warmth and compassion were unlimited; each day she fulfilled her desire to make the world a better place. Harmeny was immensely proud of her two children, Ian and Leifka Vissers. She taught her children to be strong, independent, and always ensured that they felt loved. Harmeny had an exceptional amount of love for her siblings; to Jann, Colleen, Patrick, and Thorrin she was a constant source of encouragement, love, and humour. Harmeny is survived by her mother, Jean Maw, whose unwavering support has been with her through every one of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventures. While Harmeny was born in the lower mainland, she was drawn to the Yukon by its raw beauty, and it is here she found her true home. A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, April 19th at Sharon United Church in Langley, 2pm. For her full obituary, or to leave condolences please visit:

Lloyd Louis Strangward aged 82 years passed away peacefully with his family at his side on April 13, 2014. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Cherie, Daughter Debbie, Son Randy (Linda), Son Doug (Tammy), Grandchildren Shane (Laura), Jesse, as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends that he loved dearly but are too numerous to list. He is predeceased by his Father Henry, Mother Maria, and Brother Harry as well as many other aunts, uncles, relatives and friends that will ensure he has a warm and fitting home coming. Lloyd realized many accomplishments and adventures during his life but by far his biggest treasures were his wife, children, grandsons and numerous family and friends. His loving, caring nature and infinite generosity will live on with us forever. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 26 at 11 am at St. Josephs Parish, 32550 7th Ave in Mission followed by a celebration of life at the Ruskin Community Hall on 96th Ave & 284th St, in Ruskin (Maple Ridge) at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of your choice in Lloyds name.
