Abbotsford News

A possible serial arsonist remains at large in Abbotsford, as investigators continue to look into five suspicious fires that occurred in less than 48 hours last week. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the cause of each of the fires will not likely be released at this time. “We’re not going to jeopardize the investigation,” he said, adding that the details could serve as “holdback information” that only the suspect would know. MacDonald said investigators believe the five fires are the work of an arsonist or arsonists because they all occurred after midnight in a relatively small geographical area. Two of the fires occurred early Friday morning, and the other three took place on Wednesday morning. One of Friday morning’s fires took place in the 32200 block of Hillcrest Avenue, the same road on which a blaze destroyed a vacant home and garage on Wednesday. The latest fire was also at an abandoned home and was reported by witnesses at about 12:30 a.m. The house suffered extensive damage to the basement.

SHOWSALEEVENT Firefighters still at one blaze when another starts

Service (AFRS) and the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) were still at that location, another witness reported a fire in the carport of a home in the 2400 block of Adelaide Street at 2:15 a.m. A family of four and their neighbours had to be evacuated while that blaze was contained. Damage was mainly to the garage. This was similar to the scene on Wednesday morning, when a fire was set at the outside rear of the Red Apple Food Store on Marshall Road while seven people were inside the residential units of the building. All escaped without injury. In addition to that fire

and the one on Hillcrest Avenue on Wednesday, a small fire was set in a covered area of a bank in the 2500 block of Clearbrook Road.

UP TO

MacDonald said the investigation into these incidents is currently the top priority for both the AFRS and APD. “We are extreme-

ly concerned. The Marshall Road and Adelaide locations contained families, and clearly lives were at risk,” MacDonald said.

Teachers start job action Impact of phase one won’t affect students, says district and union

Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News

Phase one of teacher job action is expected to commence today (April 23), after the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) issued 72-hour strike notice Monday. This initial step in a three-phase plan will not impact students, according to Abbotsford school district superintendent Kevin Godden, a sentiment echoed by Abbotsford District Teachers’ Association (ADTA) president Doug Smuland. Teachers will not perform non-essential duties, as determined by the Labour Relations Board. This includes attending meetings and communication with management, in addition to supervision of students before and after school, during lunch hour and recess. While this action does not add extra financial stress to the district, Godden said, “I’m very concerned about deploying people away from their duties” to ensure supervision. This additional work slows down the operation of the business of running the district, he explained. Teachers will continue to take attendance, mark and assess student work, complete report cards and volunteer for extra-

curricular activities, such as coaching, according to a letter that went out to parents April 22 from Godden. Smuland said he hasn’t heard any negative feedback from parents via local teachers so far. In addition to wage increases to bring B.C. teachers closer to parity with their counterparts across the country, he said one of the union’s most pressing concerns is class size. Phase two of the BCTF plan is rotating one-day walkouts in districts around the province. Phase three, a full-scale strike, would require a second vote by members.

The provincial government has replaced Fraser Health board chair David Mitchell as it continues a probe into budget overruns at B.C.’s biggest health authority. Wynne Powell, the longtime chair of the Provincial Health Services Authority, will take over on an interim basis. The move comes more than five months into a strategic and operational review ordered into Fraser by the province as a result of its recurring failure to stay within its budget allocations. Fraser has been receiving six per cent a year budget increases in recent years – more than 4.8 per cent at other B.C. health regions – with the health minister saying that’s out of line with the region’s population increases of 1.3 per cent annually. The large number of older residents in the region are expected to intensify pressure on Fraser’s budget.

MMBC opponents prepare for court fight Jeff NAGEL Black Press

Business opponents of Multi Material BC (MMBC) are planning a court challenge to reverse the takeover of B.C.’s curbside recycling system by the stewardship agency. They continue to urge the provincial government to freeze the new MMBC system before it takes effect May 19, but are also laying the groundwork for a legal battle. Kelvin McCulloch, CEO of the Buckerfield’s chain of farm supply stores, is urging other businesses to sign and submit their MMBC contract but then give notice to the government that they won’t pay fees or otherwise cooperate with the new system to collect packaging and printed paper. McCulloch intends to gather opt-out letters from numerous businesses across B.C. and deliver them to the province. If the MMBC rollout continues, he said, they will argue in court that the MMBC contracts were invalid and they were coerced to join the government-created recycling monopoly. “We’re fairly confident at this point it will be struck down,� McCulloch said. “No company in their right mind would sign that contract of their own free will.� The province contends MMBC is voluntary and

various industries could instead form their own separate waste-collecting organization. That option is not practical or reasonable, McCulloch said. “The suggestion that we are able to launch or own stewardship program independent of MMBC is a sham.� The MMBC program aims to transfer recycling costs from municipal taxpayers to the producers who generate packaging and printed paper, while collecting more containers and material types than before. But many businesses argue they’re unfairly compelled to pay far higher fees than a similar system run in Ontario. Critics say MMBC’s three-member interim board is controlled by executives with multinational firms like Unilever and Proctor and Gamble who have manipulated the launch of the new program to their benefit rather than the interests of most B.C. businesses. Questioned by the NDP last week, Environment Minister Mary Polak said she expects a more representative 15-member permanent board to be named soon after MMBC’s launch. A new advisory council was also recently unveiled by MMBC with reps from several B.C. business groups, but critics say it has no real power.

Arena challenge remains

Abbotsford’s ill-fated initiative to bring profession hockey to this city is over, to the disappointment of fans, but the relief of many taxpayers. Five years into the 10-year agreement with the AHL Heat, the contract has been severed with a $5.5-million buyout. That brings the investment of local taxpayers’ money in this deal to nearly $13 million, including the 2013-14 season’s loss which the city is obligated to cover. The city’s contract with the Heat guaranteed the team $5.7 million in an annual supply fee, with any shortfall coming out of the public purse. Over the first half of that agreement, the Heat saw more than $7 million in deficits, and were on course to rack up another $11 million in red ink over the next five years. Faced with that prospect, the city negotiated an end to the financial hemorraghing. Make no mistake – the Calgary Flames were not going to pack up their affiliate AHL team without compensation for a half-fulfilled contract. With the exception of the mayor and one councillor, this is the same council that signed the original Heat deal. Voters have been exceedingly patient, considering that all of those incumbents were re-elected in 2011. Four of the current councillors were part of the civic government that

brought the three projects of Plan A into existence in 2009, including the entertainment centre. Was it wise to build a 7,000-seat arena in Abbotsford? Hindsight strongly suggests no, but the council of the day, and a small majority of voters, believed otherwise. And then came the reality of securing an anchor tenant to fill those seats on a consistent basis. What followed was a highly controversial deal based on dreamy or desperate optimism, in which public money was committed to put a pro hockey team on the ice. What remains is a top-notch facility, which has drawn world-class shows and performers. However, it now lacks a major tenant, and has a track record of $2-million annual losses, which may increase without the revenue generated by a hockey team. The loan incurred to build it costs $4 million annually to service – over the next 20 years. Last week, the mayor vowed any new tenant would be revenue-positive, without taxpayer support. Politically, it’s impossible to imagine otherwise. The rest of the “new” plan for the centre, featuring a name change, increased community access, and an openness to any new hockey team overtures, is uninspiring. The Heat debacle is over – the arena challenge remains.

Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape.

Marine disasters regularly occur, and a quick search of the Internet shows human error is most often the problem. Undoubtedly, there will be many more marine accidents in future. Our grandchildren will not thank us if we willingly risk the destruction of the B.C. coast on our watch. Fortunately, there is a solution that is beneficial for all concerned: all we have to do is

build a refinery at Kitimat. I am promoting and backing this solution.The refinery will convert the bitumen to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel which float and evaporate if they are spilled. Often, little or no spill remediation is required. These refined fuels simply do not cause the habitat destruction of conventional or synthetic crude oil, or anywhere near the devastation caused by bitumen. The second part of this opinion piece will run in the next issue. It will discuss the enormous value-add benefits and environmental advantages of a modern green refinery. The pipeline from Alberta and the tanker fleet to export the refined fuels will also be considered. Let me declare my biases. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in B.C. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers, please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on this next month. David Black

Financial logic should guide decisions Congratulations to city elders for finally making the no-brainer decision to extract taxpayers from further Abbotsford Heatrelated financial pain. As we have learned, history often repeats itself. Hoping not to repeat decisions made by those who, through their naive, star-struck visions of glory refused

to ensure a professional business plan including adequate market research, let’s be a little more “practical” when in future spending (investing?) taxpayers’ money. To those councillors who originally so enthusiastically promoted and approved bringing the Abbotsford Heat into our community, please consider even

for a few moments comments made by Jordan Bateman, B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, that $12.7 million could have provided citizens “a lot of cops; that’s a lot of road repairs; that’s a lot of sewer and water infrastructure that could have been built.” Go gamble your own money in local casinos

if you wish, but you had no right to play with taxpayer dollars! Sitting city councillors, it’s nice that you occasionally allow emotions to shape your thinking, but please don’t allow them to overrule financial logic when responsible for spending other people’s money. Tony Jones Abbotsford

Abbotsford Heat was never the city’s team Re: Happy now with Heat loss? April 18 edition. Mr. Fankhanel writes regarding the departure of the Abbotsford Heat, “This was our team representing Abbotsford and we should all have been on board supporting this team.” The men on this team were never “our team.” They are called hockey players. These players are from all over the country. The Calgary Flames are called “the owners.” The owners buy, sell and trade the players, at will.

Abbotsford council had absolutely no business tying our tax dollars into subsidizing the private business ventures of either the local owners, or the Calgary Flames. Nor was it legal to consign the taxpayers to a contract beyond five years. The only sad thing about their departure is that they are taking $5.5 million more with them. What a sad state of leadership in our city. Gerda Peachey Abbotsford

Bye, bye Heat As we prepare to wave goodbye to the Heat from Abbotsford Airport for the last time, my only regret is that the empty seats on the plane are not filled with the council members who voted “yes” in the first place. T.W. Pugh Abbotsford

The Abbotsford Food Bank holds its first Give it Up for Hunger event from May 5 to 9 to promote awareness of hunger in the community, and to raise funds to meet that need. The event offers two ways for businesses and individuals to participate. One is the Give it Up Team Challenge, a contest in which local businesses are encouraged to form teams and get creative with what they can give up for a week in order to raise money for the food bank. Teams will compete against each other to see who can raise the most money, with the winning team receiving a trophy and prizes.

The other way to participate is through the Abbotsford Food Bank Online Auction. During the week of May 5 to 9, donated items and services will be auctioned off online, with all proceeds going to the food bank. More items are still needed to make the auction a success. The Abbotsford Food Bank helps more than 3,000 people each month, 1,200 of whom are children. The agency provides $2.5 million worth of food to the community each year and runs all of its programs – such as Basics for Babies, Blessings in a Backpack, a dental clinic, a soccer camp, emergency food, and the Christmas

Compost program increases waste diversion to 67%

+

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford’s curbside collection program diverted 67 per cent of waste last year compared to 43 per cent in 2012 – saving an additional 5,400 tonnes from the landfill. In January 2013, the city implemented a new program of collecting organic waste weekly, along with recycling and reducing garbage pick-up to biweekly. The program also led to a higher operating surplus – $345,000 – compared to 2012, when the city had a surplus of $144,000. Any additional diversion from garbage to compostables and recycling in 2014 will result in additional savings to the city. But staff notes that there are upcoming changes that could impact the city’s program. The city opted out of the new provincial plan for MultiMaterial BC (MMBC), which aims to make producers pay for packaging and printed paper and would assume responsibility for curbside pickup in communities. But with the program beginning operation province-wide in

May, the city could enter into an agreement with MMBC in the future, impacting Abbotsford’s waste collection. As the city opposes Metro Vancouver’s plans to build another waste-to-energy garbage incinerator, the city will look to find alternatives to using the Metro Vancouver Matsqui Transfer Station. This will help the city avoid the significant increase in Metro tipping fees which are scheduled to start next year and ensure the city’s money is not contributing to the incinerator plan. The city is also currently conducting consultations with food services, processing businesses and multi-family properties for a foodwaste diversion plan, which could significantly impact waste diversion. Jim Gordon, the city’s manager of engineering and regional utilities, explained that staff are now working to include apartments and businesses, “so we can gradually push our diversion up and up so the discussion of burning garbage isn’t even relevant anymore.”

ARTHRITIS

Source of calcium for the maintenance of good health. Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Truthful actual experiences from real people:  For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONI suffered for years. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can #1NPN 80042283 sleep at night” Arthritis Pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

A have formed a society in hopes of bringing more live acts to the region. The Fraser Valley Blues Society (FVBS) is hosting its first show April 26 at Abbotsford’s Eagles Hall, which will feature the musical talents of the internationally known Harpdog Brown Band. The Saturday night event will serve as a launch for the band’s new CD, What It Is. The band features the talents of frontman Harpdog Brown, John R Hunter (drums), Jordan Edmonds (guitar) and George Fenn (bass). Brown, who legally changed his name to Harpdog last summer, is 52, and sings and plays the blues harp. The music has been described as similar to 1950s Chicago blues. Harpdog has released six CDs. In 1995, his Home is Where The Harp Is won the Muddy Award for the best Northwest Blues Release of the year. Also that year, that CD was nominated for a  Juno  for the Best Blues Release in Canada.

December, said Mac MacDonald, one of the founders. He said the core group found each other “going to blues festivals here and around the Pacific Northwest. We’re just very interested in the genre.” There are few venues for live blues in the Fraser Valley, said MacDonald, and the society hopes to change that, as well as interest younger people in that style of music. In keeping with engaging youth, the FVBS has partnered with the Devon Clifford Music Foundation, and will be raising funds for that organization, which formed in 2010 and provides an opportunity to pursue music for youth who might not otherwise be able. Society memberships will be for sale at the show. Tickets to the April 26 show are $20 and are available at the Eagles Hall (33868 Essendene Ave.) or by calling 604-850-3653 or 604-6151300. The doors open at 7 p.m., and the show runs from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Human trafficking is the fastest-growing and most lucrative criminal enterprise in Canada, according to a group dedicated to battling it, and an event on April 26 in Abbotsford aims to heighten awareness to the issue. “It is estimated that traffickers in Canada make an average of $280,000 per year per victim because demand is so high for trafficked women,” said Joy Smith, of the Joy Smith Foundation. A breakfast meeting, which starts at 8:30 a.m., will happen at Garden Park Towers on Clearbrook Road, and will feature talks from Smith and Abbotsford Police Department Chief Bob Rich. Smith was a former teacher in Winnipeg and is now known across Canada as an anti-human trafficking advocate. The Kildonan-St. Paul MP presented Bill C-268 in 2010 to the Canadian Parliament, which was adopted. This created a new criminal offence for child trafficking with tough minimum sentences. Tickets to the breakfast can be purchased by visiting joysmithfoundation.com or by calling Brad Vis at 778-808-9602.

The sweeping popularity of craft beer isn’t just confined to downtown Vancouver. Beer has been having a renaissance for the past number of years across North America, with more and more consumers choosing to seek out and purchase the beverage from smaller companies. The market has been dominated for decades by the massive companies. That, much to the joy of nascent and veteran beer geeks, is changing. No longer is beer considered to just be a pale yellow lager. Customers can now get pale, India pale, Belgian wheat, marzen, Oktoberfest, Scotch and a host of other beers with origins around the planet at dozens of liquor retailers in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland.

JASON ROESSLE Abbotsford News

Surlie Brewing’s Tim Brown stands by some of his new beer making equipment at his new operation on Townline Road. More than 20 new breweries have started up in the region in the past two years, and this fast-paced growth shows little sign of slowing. Abbotsford’s Tim Brown would agree. A professional brewer for the past 15 years and former head brewer at Mission Springs, Brown has recently completed his first bottled batch

of beer out of his new Townline Road business, Surlie Brewing. He opened the doors Oct. 2, and has been installing thousands of dollars of stainless steel brew kettles, fermenters and other sundry pieces of brewing operations. His first beer to market is a Belgian-style pale ale, called Solitaire, similar to a Chimay, and ringing in at 6.5 per cent

alcohol by volume. The dark brown ale exhibits a dried fruit aroma and is unfiltered, which means some yeast sediment will be present at the bottom of each bottle, a hallmark of many craft beers now available on shelves. Brown has packaged his creations in 650 ml bottles called bombers. And the local market is showing enough positive growth signs that existing breweries are growing. At the Mission Springs, renovations are currently underway at the brewpub that include eight outdoor fermentation chambers, a 22-metric tonne grain silo, an automated bottling line, and more. “It’s an exciting time to be in the industry,� said brewmaster Kevin Winter.

Not yet at saturation point, says Winter

From A20

The interest in craft beer is definitely growing, he said. “We’re expanding from a brewpub with a little brewery, to a brewery with a restaurant,” Winter noted with a laugh. The principal driver of the Springs’ growth is the business’s recent foray into bar ownership in Korea. The Springs currently has two taphouses in South Korea. “It’s going so well we’re looking at opening more.” Winter says the local craft beer scene still has room to grow. “I don’t think we’re at the point of saturation. The more competition creates more demand.”

Participants highlighted a number of positive features of the school district, and chief among them were: quality of teachers and staff, good communication between school and home, a focus on reading, and access to computers and technology. The top skills that participants felt young people needed for successful futures were: communication skills, accountability and personal responsibility, problem-solving skills, academic basics and respect. “We have been carefully reviewing the feedback, and have a better understanding of how we can continue to enhance the educational experience we provide for students,” said Cindy Schafer, chair of the board of education. “This feedback is vital to the ongoing work of our board’s strategic plan.

“informal, a little goofy, and very easygoing.” “We want women to be able to feel OK about asking questions, even if they think their questions are kind of dumb,” she said. Wood conducts the workshops with another realtor, Carolyn Carson. The session on May

2 begins at 6 p.m. at Chances Playtime Abbotsford, 30835 Peardonville Rd. To register, call Sonia Wood at 778-808-8049 (email soniasutton@ gmail.com) or Carolyn Carson at 778-8784687 (email choosecarolyn@gmail.com). For more information, visit realestateforwomenonthemove.com.

To win a championship, you need to be able to absorb your opponent’s best shot and keeping pressing forward. That’s exactly what the Beaver Valley Nitehawks did on Sunday afternoon, as they beat the host Abbotsford Pilots 5-1 in the Keystone Cup title game. The Pilots, seeking their second Western Canadian junior B hockey championship in three seasons, began the contest with a purpose – they’d lost 10-2 to Beaver Valley in their opening game of the round robin, and after winning their next four games en route to the final, were motivated to give a better account of themselves.

Jarrett Martin of the Abbotsford Pilots accelerates away from Kyle Hope of the Beaver Valley Nitehawks during Sunday’s Keystone Cup title game.

less opening frame, they struck twice in the second, then pulled away in the third to clinch gold. “It wasn’t a lack of effort on our part,” noted Pilots forward Jarrett Martin, who scored his team’s lone goal. “We gave it our all, it was just some bad bounces. “They’re a good, skilled team – any time you mess up, it’s in the back of your net.” The pace and physicality in the first period were exceptional, and both goalies came up with some terrific saves to keep it scoreless.

Heat poised for playoffs Begin chase for Calder Cup at home vs. Grand Rapids Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The final edition of the Abbotsford Heat also happens to be the best. The Heat responded to last week’s announcement that they’ll be moving out of town at season’s end by going undefeated on a three-games-inthree-nights road trip to wrap up the regularseason schedule. They began the jaunt with victories over the San Antonio Rampage on Thursday (3-1) and Friday (3-0), and capped it off with a 4-3 win over the firstplace Texas Stars on Saturday. Those results got the Heat to 43 victories on the season, which represents a new team record. The previous mark of 42 wins had been set in 2011-12. Abbotsford (43-25-8, 94 points) also locked up fifth place in the Western Conference, and they’ll face the defending Calder Cup champion Grand Rapids Griffins, the No. 4 seed, in the first round of the playoffs. They open the bestof-five series at home this week with Friday and Saturday games (7 p.m. both nights, Abbotsford Centre). The Detroit Red Wings affiliate hosts the balance of the series – Game 3

DARREN ABATE San Antonio Rampage

In his AHL debut last Friday, Emile Poirier slipped the puck past San Antonio Rampage goalie Scott Clemmensen for his first goal as a pro. goes Wednesday, April 30, with Games 4 and 5 (if necessary) running May 2-3. “We’ve got a lot of confidence coming off that road trip,” Heat forward Max Reinhart said. “It’s huge, getting momentum going into the playoffs.” Last week’s action was highlighted by milestones for Reinhart, Emile Poirier and Doug Carr. Sophomore pro Reinhart notched five points (one goal, four assists) on the trip to establish a new team record for single-season points. Reinhart finished with 21 goals and 42 assists for 63 points in 66 games, moving past Krys Kolanos, who set the previous mark in 2011-

12 with 30 goals and 31 assists for 61 points in just 47 games. Poirier, a first-round draft choice by the Calgary Flames (22nd overall) in 2013, joined the Heat last week after his junior season with the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League ended. He authored a smashing pro debut, scoring

a goal in his first game on Friday, and for an encore, he posted three points (one goal, two assists) in Saturday’s win over Texas. Backup goalie Carr, who signed with the Heat three weeks ago out of the University of Massachusetts Lowell, earned his first pro win in memorable fashion via a 27-save shutout of the Rampage on Friday.

Timberwolves win Valley sevens title

The Robert Bateman Timberwolves rode a stout defence and an MVP performance from Gavin Rowell to the first Fraser Valley senior boys rugby sevens title in school history. The T-Wolves knocked off Queen Elizabeth 35-14 and Elgin Park 21-19 during round-robin play, and cruised past R.E. Mountain 40-12 in the semifinals. That set up a date with arch-rival Earl Marriott of Surrey in the title game, and Bateman dominated en route to a 31-5

triumph. Rowell racked up five tries and 14 conversions throughout the tournament, while Slayter Tonnesen and Talus Swanberg notched three tries apiece. Tanner Friesen and Christian Pedersen turned in notable efforts on defence. The T-Wolves advance to the provincial sevens championship April 26-27 at UBC’s Wolfson Fields, and participate in the Abbotsford high school sevens tourney May 2.

Riley Brandt, Keanan Patershuk and Fraser Stang. Martin got Abby on the board with 2:59 left, whacking home a rebound to spoil Clark’s shutout bid. Clark earned tournament MVP honours, though, after making 32 saves in the final. Dallas Calvin of the Nitehawks took home the top forward prize after leading the tourney in scoring (six goals and eight assists in six games), and the top defenceman award went to Abby’s Austin Edwards. Pilots coach Jim Cowden expressed pride in his team’s effort.

“I thought we played extremely well,” he said. “They (the Nitehawks) are a good team, and you’ve got to take your hat off to them. They play hard, they play for keeps, and they battle.” The Blackfalds Wranglers claimed the bronze medal, edging the Thunder Bay Northern Hawks 4-3. Pilots owner/general manager Jack Goeson was pleased with how the tournament was received and with the contributions from his small army of volunteers. “It went really well,” he said. “We got lots of good comments about our hospitality.”

ABBOTSFORD’S 7TH ANNUAL PREMIER RUNNING EVENT


Abbotsford News Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The Abbotsford Cardinals split a home doubleheader vs. the Okanagan Athletics on Sunday. The A's won the opener 1-0, as pitcher Trevor Lofstrom turned in six and onethird innings of shutout baseball to out-duel Abby's Alex Gibbons, who surrendered just the one run over seven innings. In the second game of the day, the Cards

staged a rally in the top of the seventh inning to salvage a split. Trailing 2-0, they racked up four runs, highlighted by a Jae Kim single to drive in the two go-ahead runs. The Cardinals (4-1) are off to a terrific start to the B.C. Premier Baseball League season, and their next home game is Thursday (7 p.m., DeLair Park) vs. the Vancouver Cannons.

DYCK David Aged 80 years passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus with his wife Tina by his side on April 17th, 2014. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife, and best friend Tina, and his children Doreen, Gary, Sheryl (Joe), Janet (Dan) and Pat (Vic). Proud grandfather of Parker, Shaun (Linda), Sherri (Rob), Dana, Lee, Tyler, Vanessa, (Rob), Brett, Joshua, Kaitlin (Anthony), and Caleb. Great grandfather of Myla, Aleksander, Elias, and Markus. He will also be missed by his brothers John (Mary), Willie (Lorraine) and sister Lena (Arnold) as well as extended family and friends. David is pre-deceased by his parents Abraham and Lena, brothers Abe, Jake, Pete, Henry, Frank and Ed. Although he came from simple beginnings, hard work and determination characterized him. Most of David’s working career was spent as a carpenter in the construction industry building houses. In his later working career he worked for MEI as a custodian, he thoroughly enjoyed working there and especially loved the students, who he liked to interact with. He also enjoyed camping at places like Vedder River, Enderby and Lac La Hache. David realized many accomplishments and adventures during his life but by far his biggest treasures were his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many friends. Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day..…. unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very near. A special thanks to the staff at the Menno Hospital who took such good care of Dad over the last few months, to the wonderful staff at the Renal Clinic, and to Dr. Chafe. A memorial service will be held to celebrate David’s life on Thursday, April 24th, 2014 at 1:00 pm at Northview Community Church, 32040 Downes Road, Abbotsford, BC.

OBITUARIES

VERDONK, Betty April 10th, 2014 Alice Elizabeth Brown was born in Vancouver, BC during a war-time blackout on December 11, 1941 to Mary Ross (Sue) Harvie and Claude John Angus Brown, who was serving in the Royal Canadian navy. After release from service, “Brownie” joined Trans Mountain Pipeline, and the family lived in Edmonton, Edson, Stony Plain, and Jasper before settling in Abbotsford. Betty learned from these moves to love mountains with fierce weather, close to prairies, preferably with a river running through them; and when she arrived in Abbotsford in 1959 she found Sumas Prairie, which to her was “absolute heaven”. After graduating from Abbotsford Senior High School, she took secretarial training at Vancouver Vocational Institute, then joined BC’s Department of Social Welfare and subsequently the Royal Bank. On September 7th, 1963 she married Jim Verdonk, a Sumas Prairie dairy farmer from a large Dutch family. She was advised to “never learn to milk a cow; to learn to cook, to make cheese, and to grow vegetables”. She did. When Jim moved to Mission to start a panir plant, Betty joined the RCMP’s Victims Services program as a volunteer. Her enthusiasm for the Women’s Institute, Victims Services, her Sumas Prairie Wives Luncheon Club, and the wild weather of Sumas Prairie never died. She was predeceased by her husband Jim, and is survived by her sister Claudia of Abbotsford, her son David of Ridgecrest Dairies of Mission; and her son Steven of Canal Farms of Abbotsford, his wife Wendy Smorenburg Verdonk, and granddaughter Katelyn Daisy Mary Verdonk. Betty’s last wish was to die surrounded by laughter and to not be in pain. The staff and volunteers of Christine Morrison Hospice made her last wish come true and her family sends their deepest thanks. Betty asked for a special thank you to the executive committee of the HotDog Club, Janet and Jeff Bryan. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Christine Morrison Hospice. A celebration of Betty’s life will be held at the Rancho, 35110 DeLair Road on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.
