Dedication to amphibian survival leads to ‘Superman’ award Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Ryder Lake resident Steve Clegg was flattered to be recognized for his work protecting endangered toads and frogs. The Fraser Valley Conservancy presented him with the ‘Superman Award’ last month in recognition of his “super-human dedication” to the amphibians of Ryder Lake and “his endless enthusiasm promoting conservation in the Fraser Valley.” It’s particularly timely now because the juvenile Western toads of Ryder Lake are starting their annual migration this week. “It’s nice to see the recognition,” Clegg told The Progress about the award. “It’s a very strong feeling when you do something you believe in for a long time, and others show you that they share those same values,” he said. Clegg started volunteering with FVC in 2008 to help with the Ryder Lake Amphibian Protection project. He’s not a biologist by training. He’s employed as an environmental services specialist for the City of Chilliwack. “I would put myself more in the naturalist category,” he said, about his interest in toads and frogs. His degree is in geography and environmental studies. But as a kid growing up in Ryder Lake, he always noticed the creatures that populate the area. “I grew up here. For all intents and purposes, they’re right in my backyard,” he said. Migration for the toadlets is always risky because they strive to get from a rearing pond, across the roads and into to Ryder Lake. The species range from Western toads to red-legged frogs, but the juveniles on the move now are toads. As an adult, Clegg became aware of the serious conservation challenges they were facing.

“It’s the first time a community has built a campsite primarily for recreational fishermen,” said Darwin Douglas, a board member for Cheam Enterprises, which is developing Cheam Fishing Village Campground. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS FILE

Riverside campground built on Cheam beach to serve a growing recreational fishing sector It’s shaping up to be a big season for fishing on the river Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Cheam Fishing Village is a new campground ready to open this week on the Fraser River. “It’s been a bit of a whirlwind project,” said Darwin Douglas, a Cheam band councillor, and board member for Cheam Entreprises, which is developing the campsite. The venture is unique in Sto:lo territory. “It’s the first time a community has built a campsite primarily for recreational fishermen,” Douglas said, adding that the

people of Cheam will own it. It’s shaping up to be a big season for salmon fishing on the Fraser this summer, so it only makes sense to put out the welcome mat for recreational anglers, he said. “Fishing has always been a huge part of our culture. The idea is we will host them and welcome them into our community,” Douglas explained. The fishing village offers a chance to share the picturesque site with visitors, as well as the history and culture of Cheam First Nation, also known as the Pilalt tribe. There will be 50

campsites, with many of them offering riverfront views. “It’s a big step,” he noted. There has been friction between the groups in the past, acknowledged Douglas. But there have also been improvements, and growth. There have been discussions and collaborations between the communities in recent years that made the new business seem like a natural. “We’ve talked about it at the band council level, and with fishermen. We want to go down a different path now.” The idea to is to foster better

communication and understanding on both sides, through positive interaction between Cheam members and anglers at the campground. “We think it’s a good way to move forward. We’re excited about it.” The recreational fishery has seen steady growth, with many coming from across the Lower Mainland, Vancouver and Washington state to fish the mighty Fraser. “There’s lots of demand for access to the river, and not a Continued: CHEAM/ p6

Clegg helped find solutions for toadlets CLEGG from Front It was a struggle for them to make it safely over the road and into the lake. “I strongly believe that all creatures have an inherent right to exist,” he offered. So it became vitally important for him to try to secure their future so they would still exist as his own children grew. The amphibian project used local road closures during migrations, and nighttime monitoring to help reduce toadlet and frog mortalities. His aim was finding the main migration corridors, with the goal of eventually building a wildlife crossing structure for them to travel unharmed. Clegg was hired and worked for the non-profit, and then reverted back to volunteering his consulting services when the funding disappeared. FVC executive director Joanne Neilson called Clegg their “eyes on the ground” because he lives in the middle of amphibian habitat. “We have been through a lot of turmoil,” she said about changes to the FVC. “We couldn’t have done it without him.” She said it’s hard to maintain permanent staff in the non-profit sector, as funding levels can vary quite a bit. “Steve was able to offer some real consistency. He’s a real conservation-minded individual who is good at spreading the message

“It’s nice to see the recognition,” Clegg told The Progress about the Superman award from Fraser Valley Conservancy.

RCMP are looking for a man who left Chilliwack General Hospital on June 29 and did not return. Brandon Gaona was last seen at 11:35 p.m. that night and was supposed to return to the hospital two hours after being released. A 24-year-old First Nations man, he was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and jeans with purple hearts stitched onto them. He’s five-foot-six and weighs roughly 154 pounds. “We are concerned about the length of time Brandon has been missing,” said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck, who confirmed this as a missing persons case. “The best place for him to be right now is in the hospital where he can be properly cared for.” Anyone with info is asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477.

Cash mob to help ADTS

SHINY RIGS

Ann Davis Transition Society is holding a ‘Cash Mob’ event at Murray Honda on Saturday, July 19 to raise funds for its programs and services. There will be hot dogs, balloons and refreshments from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the dealership located at 44954 Yale Road West.

“Hope to see you there,” said ADTS executive director Patti MacAhonic. “I will be personally barbecuing hotdogs for the cause, along with our board president Kathy Clement and Transition House Manager Shelley Bolan.” ADTS served more than 2,600 people in the community last year, 600 of whom were children.

Benefits Of Bamboo Flooring! Bamboo is an eco-friendly, highly renewable source of material which grows much faster than traditional hardwoods. Moso Bamboo is the primary species used for the manufacturing of flooring and it can grow up to 4’ per day and 75’ in 45 days. It takes about 3-5 years for Bamboo to reach maturity. Traditional hardwoods take 20-120 years to mature. Bamboo can be harvested without replanting and in a sustainably harvested forest only 20% of the forest is harvested annually allowing for 100% harvest in a 5 year period. Bamboo naturally needs no irrigation, no fertilizers and no pesticides as it has very few pests. Trillium Bamboo Flooring is certified to meet the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council for environmental and social responsibility.

Summer strike

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

School’s out and British Columbia’s teachers are still on strike. Or are they? Drive past any of the province’s more than 1,600 public schools and the picketing teachers who waved at passing motorists, eliciting horns of support or scorn, are absent. Their signs pleading for better education for their students with smaller classrooms and better class composition are packed away. For all intents and purposes, it looks like another routine summer holiday season around BC’s schools. And yet it’s not. The acrimonious dispute that put the teachers on the street, and kids’ educations on hold, continues. But there are no longer pickets to remind us that the strike is still on. That may be a missed opportunity for the teachers’ union to score a point in the battle for public support in this dispute. Continuing to picket the province’s schools through the summer, even in a skeleton fashion, would have been a constant reminder of what this dispute is about. Teachers could have shown their commitment to the cause they say they’re fighting for by continuing that fight even when they’re normally on holiday. And maintaining pickets through the summer would have increased the pressure on the government to reach an agreement, as CUPE workers had pledged to honour teachers’ picket lines meaning routine summer maintenance, repairs and paperwork wouldn’t get done. The provincial government is relying on public perception that teachers are already well paid and get to enjoy two months off every year to win support for its position. Seeing pickets march in the hot summer sun might have won fans for the teachers. — Burnaby News Leader

B.C.’s splendour is ‘the least diminished,’ says report British Columbia is the top go-to green place in Canada. The number-one ranking came from Corporate Knights, a media, research and financial information products company based in Toronto and focused on promoting systems based on social, economic, and ecological costs and benefits. British Columbia’s score card came in at 83 per cent, a couple of points ahead of Prince Edward Island at 81. Actually, British Columbia ranks in fourth place on the North American continent behind California (86.4 per cent), Massachusetts (84.9 per cent) and New York (83.4 per cent). “B.C. is Canada’s greenest province for a number of reasons but its decision to put a price on carbon stands out as its greatest single achievement,” the report states. “As a guiding principle, it couldn’t be more appropriate for

For Canadians, the province is both a gateway to the Pacific Ocean and a place to cherish the greatest hits of nature, from the ruggedness of the Rocky Mountains to its oxygen-rich ancient forests and the biodiversity they nurture.” All that sounds very nice but I don’t know that B.C.’s resource industries must be Margaret thought of simply EVANS as blemishes. “Not to suggest B.C. has no blemishes,” the report continued. “Logging, mining, fossil fuel exploration and other industrial activities have left their combined mark on Canada’s thirdmost populous province. But when compared to its provincial cousins, B.C.’s splendour is comparatively

least diminished.” Assessing benefits looked at key performance indicators which were energy, air and climate, waste management, domestic water use, transportation, and protection of natural areas and biodiversity. According to the report, B.C. excels because it has the highest density of electric vehicle charging stations per capita and the highest percentage of protected land with over 14 per cent of the province fully protected. Apparently we also stacked up points because British Columbians rack up the fewest kilometres per capita — 38 per cent less than worst-ranked Alberta, which actually finished in eighth place with a scorecard of 42 per cent. The lowest-ranked province was Saskatchewan at 33 per cent. B.C. is the third-most economically efficient user of energy and emitter of greenhouse gas emis-

sions, and it has the third-highest rate of municipal solid waste diversion in the country. Waste and air pollution produced per unit of economic output were also among the lowest. But when it came to water, apparently we’re guzzlers. We are the fourth-highest users of water per capita, nearly twice as thirsty Prince Edward Island, which ranked best in that category. But what the Corporate Knights folks did like about us was our carbon tax, despite the fact that most people living here hate it. “One likely contributor to B.C.’s top-notch performance is a carbon tax it introduced in July 2008,” the report said. “It’s estimated that CO2-equivalent emissions from gasoline consumption fell in the province by 3.5 million tonnes in the four years after the B.C. carbon tax was enacted, according to a study from researchers at the

University of Ottawa.” Another study, by Ottawa-based think tank Sustainable Prosperity, found that B.C.’s per capita consumption of fuels just four years after the carbon tax was introduced declined by 19 per cent compared to the rest of Canada. But that could just as easily be because gas prices spiked in those intervening years and people became more discretionary about driving, used transit more, or shared rides with other commuters. “The implementation of British Columbia’s carbon tax is as near as we have to a textbook case,” said Angel Gurria, Secretary-General of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, in a speech last October. Good stuff that Corporate Knights rated us number one. But we knew that already.

Cuts to pool hours rankle One of my favourite summer traditions in Chilliwack has been the summer swimming lessons at Rotary Pool. Swimmers can be outside (where swimming was meant to happen), spectators can get some fresh air (not the humid and chlorinated sauna the indoor pool becomes) and the price was right. My kids would swim for a while, I’d jump in with them afterwards, then they’d have a play on the playground while my wife and I laid out a picnic lunch in the small adjoining park. An idyllic two weeks would pass in this manner. Furthermore, my kids are now old enough that this was the first summer they would be allowed to go to the pool on their bikes by themselves. Boy, were they looking forward to that! This summer looked to be no different. I packed the kids and the lunch and off we went. Imagine my surprise when the lifeguards informed me that

there were no longer public swims on weekdays. Oh well, said I, cutbacks again. At least we could have our picnic. I set up and halfway through our meal when the lifeguards vacated the pool and informed me that they also had to shut and lock the gate for the playground! I wonder where the money came from to build that nice new playground that now sits behind lock and key? Now, I don’t know about you, but I am sick of seeing and hearing about the obesity crisis in North America. I am sick of having to see websites like Participaction telling us to “Bring back play!” I am happy, though I am loathe to give the B.C. government any compliments on education policy, that students in B.C. have a mandatory 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Here we had a place where kids could go and play, it was cheap, and because it was just a rectangle and water they had to use

their imaginations and PLAY! Harried parents could drop off their seven-year-old, read a book and get a break, kids had to be co-operative and meet other kids instead of hiding behind their folks and their screens. It was win-win-win! Public services should not make money — that is why they are a service, that is why taxes are levied. Perhaps, we as an electorate should remember this when every level of government promises no tax increases in order to stay elected, all the while cutting services and raising user-fees. Shame on the bureaucrats who seem only to care about numbers, shame on the Leisure Recreation Group (whose very name should preclude such a decision), shame on Parks and Recreation, and shame on City Council. I am pretty sure there will be enough money when council salaries “need” to be raised! Matt Myers

Beautiful little babies make her sad Justin and Brett, as I read your story and saw the picture of you and the beautiful little babies, I was filled with mixed feelings as I’m sure many Christians were. Joy at seeing these precious little ones. All life is precious — in the womb, and out. However, great sadness at the realization that you are depriving them of the being raised by a loving mom and dad, something Justin men-

tions on your blog that he was lacking in his youth. You would choose that for these children? I also have concerns of what will happen to Jordyn and Sawyer’s thir teen siblings that you have “created.” Rest assured they are just as priceless as Jordyn and Sawyer. And you are responsible for them. I understand from God’s word that those who are living homo-

sexual lives will find it very difficult to see that what they are doing is so frightfully immoral. So I expect you to read this and feel defensive. That’s understandable. Apparently that is a predicted response. And to convince yourself that what you are doing is perfectly normal and OK. Well, it’s not. Not everything in life that makes us happy is OK. No matter how many folks you can convince

to agree with you, if God does not, what of all the “love”? It’s worthless. Empty. I challenge you to be open minded and to search God’s word. Start with Romans 1:2628. And if there you find yourself faced with the truth, God can also give repentance, healing and real love. You say you can’t change who you are, but God can. And you can change what you do. Nelly Goudzwaard

A pat on the back for Chilliwack Rotarians This is a letter of gratitude to the Chilliwack Rotary clubs: Recently, on July 9, when I was relaxing on Dwayne Snyder’s bench, marked 19602003 — what a legacy, Dwayne — I thought as I rested. I listened to the rush of the Vedder River, saw bald headed eagles competing decibels with the gulls and

crows, and of course thought of the legacy of the Chilliwack Rotarians for the beautifully kept trails for cyclists and strollers. Yesterday, I had yet again a similar experience as I cycled the Hope River Rotary Trail — a quiet river, many well-spaced benches, and beautifully wellkept lawns.

Surely the Rotarians have made Chilliwack a destination for many out-of-towners. I am sure that many readers will say amen to this expression of gratitude to the Chilliwack Rotarians as they often do on the trail. George H. Epp

WorkBC

t Options n e Exploring Employm

My name is Angelia Fox, the new owner of Streetwise Traffic Controllers, Ltd. In April 2013, the company I was with lost the contract I was working on and my position was terminated. I immediately contacted WorkBC. Their staff were very informative and worked amazingly as a team to get me pointed in the right direction. I had searched for another job that was comparable to the one I just left and came up with nothing. I thought for a long time that I would like to open my own traffic control company. When I was not able to find a comparable job, the Self Employment program became an option for me. Munjeet Jennings, a Case Manager at WorkBC, worked very quickly to get me set up in the program. There was a start-up class beginning right away and she didn’t want me to miss it, and delay the opening of my business. The financial support available to me made starting this new business a lot less stressful. WorkBC funded my travel expenses to Abbotsford for my business start-up training and also gave me a living allowance. We opened Streetwise on August 1, 2013, and have been growing our business ever since with great success. I can’t thank all of the staff enough for all their hard work! WorkBC Employment Services Centre is located at 101-5658 Vedder Road and provides Personal Employment Planning, a variety of practical workshops, and a self serve employment resource room which includes access to computers, internet, photocopier and job board (updated daily). Drop by or call 604-858-5472 for more information.

Bursary honours deceased dragon boater Lois Boschman was everything a paddler should be and now her name will forever be part of FVDBC Katie Bartel The Progress Lois Boschman’s voice could be heard across oceans, rivers and lakes. It’s not what most would have expected at first glance from the silver-haired woman with one of the most warming smiles, but when she spoke, her fellow dragon boaters paddled. It’s a voice that still booms in the ears of her teammates eight months after her death. “I think we all hear her voice in our heads urging us on,” said husband Ron Denman, also a paddler. “One of the phrases that kind of echoes around in everybody’s head is ‘Come on you guys, we’re in a race!’” Boschman and her booming voice will live on through an annual bursary organized by the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club. The Lois Boschman Memorial Bursary was created this year for two graduating students; one from the Chilliwack school district and the other from the Agassiz and Hope school districts. Each bursary is $500. Successful recipients are members of the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club’s junior team. Formed in 2004, Boschman was an early member of the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club, which now boasts mixed, junior, women-only, and senior teams. Boschman started as a paddler nine years ago with the Mavericks Dragon Boat Team, and quickly moved into the caller’s seat. Passionately shouting out commands to her teammates, urging them to dig deep, to

drive hard through that water, to go, go, go straight through that finish line, it’s a voice that won’t soon be forgotten. “She had a great voice, you heard her everywhere,” said Denman. “She was very passionate, she’d get so excited – there were teams that wanted her.” Last June Boschman was diagnosed with lung cancer. Despite chemotherapy and radiation interventions, the cancer won. Boschman died Nov. 19, 2013. “Realizing now, they were more palliative than curative,” said Denman of the chemo and radiation. “It was very fast.” When Denman was notified of the new bursary by the club’s president at Boschman’s memorial service, he was blown away. But for the club, it was a no brainer. “The person that she was, she was a strong woman, she was passionate and joyful about the sport, she basically embodied everything that we take seriously in this sport as far as camaraderie, team work, and team spirt,” said club president Scott Farrell. “Lois was a fighter until the end… the bursary is a way to keep her name and all she did for the club moving forward.” This year’s recipients of the Lois Boschman Memorial Bursary were Carmen Taylor of Sardis secondary and Adrienne Ferguson of Agassiz secondary. Ferguson will be going to the University of the Fraser Valley and will be working towards a Bachelor of Arts in either political science or law. Taylor will be attending the University of British Columbia going into applied biology with the intent of specializing in sustainable agriculture. Taylor also intends to continue dragon boating next year with the UBC Thunder Dragons. “For me, dragon boating is… not just a sport, but an opportunity to share experiences with a group of people with exceptional character,” said Taylor at the Sardis secondary graduation ceremony. Words Boschman lived by.

The University of the Fraser Valley is going local – really local. A selection of UFV authors are being featured this year in the Literary Café at the Harrison Festival of the Arts. With the theme, UFV’s Own, authors include John Carroll and Rajneesh Dhawan, who will be reading together, as well as

Question of the Week Driveway test driver Zack Spencer says today’s crossover vehicles have replaced the popular station wagon of yesteryear. Do you agree? Is there something about the station wagon that appeals more to you? Go to DrivewayCanada.ca to submit your answer. QUESTION

?

Lexus joins the compact crossover lineup with the all-new NX.

OF THE WEEK!

Drive The worldwide launch of the NX was held right here in B.C., driving between ultra modern Vancouver and the rustic resort of Whistler. International guests were exposed to the two sides of the NX, the polished city vehicle and the weekend getaway SUV. Powering around the mountain resort, I got my first shot at the all-new 2.0L direct inject turbocharged 4-cylinder that Lexus will use in a number of its vehicles. With 235hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque this new power plant does a good job once the NX 200t is in motion; it is getting away from a stop that could use a bit more snap. AWD is standard across the lineup but the system is designed to run in front wheel drive as much as possible to help save fuel. Lexus has made no bones about its target; it sees the Audi Q5 as the benchmark in this class. Audi has been at the small turbocharged game a lot longer and it shows, plus the handling of the NX isn’t sharp at all. In fact, all the passengers inside the base model test vehicle noticed the top-heavy body roll. Verdict What Lexus (Toyota) has been up to over the past ten-plus years is

producing hybrid cars in numbers nobody else can touch. This new NX is also available as a hybrid, but don’t expect any kind of show-stopping performance. Rated at just 194hp, the heavier NX 300h hybrid might be outclassed by just-as-thrifty diesel options in the market. The price of the NX 200T has not been set but if you look at the Audi Q5 as a target, expect the price to start at roughly $41,000 when it goes on sale at the end of 2014. Fuel economy has also not been set but with a direct injection turbocharged 4-cylinder under the hood, this new Lexus should be better on fuel than the larger RX350 equipped with a V6 engine. As the small SUV market continues to grow, and this new NX certainly is one of the most eye-catching to come along in a while.

Safety Tip: There are some quick safety checks you can make on your vehicle to protect yourself and your passengers. For starters, make sure the head restraints are at least level with the top of the head and as close as possible to the back of the head to help prevent injury.

It may be a young’un but it’s already undergone some significant changes and engine improvements. Perhaps most significant among them was the introduction of a clean diesel version (pictured here) with a sticker price of around $26,000. It’s not inexpensive but Canadians like the 4.2 L/100 km highway fuel consumption offered by the two-litre, turbocharged diesel powerplant. The base Cruze LS is also easy on your gas budget. Its standard 6-speed manual transmission, coupled with a 1.4-litre powerplant, promises a highway fuel consumption rating of 5.4 L/100 km – the auto tranny makes that 5.6 L/100 km. The Cruze Eco’s 1.4L turbocharged ECOTEC engine, generates 138 horses and sips 4.6 L/100 km on the highway. It looks good today but in 2015, the Cruze gets a significant visual refresh with an updated grille and body shape that will give it more than a passing resemblance to its larger sibling Malibu. We’re told it will get significant tech changes, including an

200th St.

Our neighbours to the south may still be suspicious of smaller vehicles but they are more than welcome on driveways north of the border. In the top 20 best sellers, 15 are compact or subcompacts and the remaining five are by no means gas-guzzlers. The Honda Civic is the perennial top seller, and according to the latest figures available, the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla follow it. The Chevrolet Cruze, currently with a starting sticker price of a few bucks more than $15,200, sits in a solid fourth place and it’s a ray of light for General Motors. It recorded a five percent year-over-year sales increase in the first quarter reports. Its 2014 March sales were a fraction under 50 per cent better than last year. In fact, it’s the brand’s best seller with worldwide sales in excess of two million since its launch. Much has been written about the Ford revival and its excellent world car products – most of which fall into the small car category. GM does have competing products in what’s become a crowded market. The subcompact Sonic is in the top 20 but nothing has caught fire in the way the Cruze has. It first surfaced here in late 2010 as a globally developed and designed compact four-door sedan and five-door hatchback, replacing the outgoing Cobalt. When I drove one of the early editions, I was impressed with its design and performance, which matched any rival. It’s a car for a small family starting out or singles with a daily commute on their hands. However, I feared the Cruze would suffer from the apparent prejudice against domestically produced small cars but its sales prove me to be a pessimist!

KEVIN KEW

Big new bike weighs in light AUSTIN, TX – I can’t think of a better time to learn how to ride, or a harder time to ride. These juxtaposing thoughts can be explained thusly. There are so many great choices for new riders when it comes to machinery it’s hard to make a decision on what to add to your garage. But the variety also means there are bikes to suit all. Those wanting to get on sportbikes don’t need to start on a 250 or 300 cc, let alone a 600 cc variant. You can get a 125 cc. Or when it comes to cruisers,

you don’t have to start on a machine that might be a little on the heavy side. You can get a competent road partner, which looks cool and doesn’t weigh south of 250 kilos. Enter the 2015 HarleyDavidson Street 750. 222 kilos, soaking wet. Hitting streets later this year, it’s the first new bike the American motorcycle maker has concocted from scratch in the last 11 years. The last all-new bike was the V-Rod. And with a blank canvas, Harley could start from the ground up, listen to the Follow us at:

voices of the customer and translate that into a cruiser that is tailored to urban riding. On the streets of Austin, Texas, a group of international media had the opportunity to take the new machinery for a test drive. While the majority of the route takes us on long, sweeping stretches of country roads, the Street 750 really shines in slow speed environments. Why does it thrive in an urban setting? For many reasons: the first being that Harley wanted to create a bike for the city rider. A bike that has a low-revving yet silky smooth engine and transmission, a low seat height, a favourable suspension – for all the potholes and road imperfections one might encounter –and is a bike on which variety of riders can feel comfortable. Let’s start with its all-new engine. The Street 750 is matched with a liquidcooled — yes, liquid! — 749 cc, 60-degree, which gives ample acceleration when you need it, particularly when you’re accelerating from a standstill. Not only that, it doesn’t spew unwanted heat towards the rider when they’re idling. And if you’re like me, and wear full gear even on hot, summer days, you’re incredibly grateful for that. Furthermore, it’s paired to a 6-speed transmission. Normally, stop-go traffic on a Harley would be a pain. However, it wasn’t with the 750. It’s the easiest and lightest clutch I’ve worked with on any of the American motorcycle manufacturer’s bikes. Speaking of low seat height, it measures in at 709mm (27.9-inches.)

‘‘

The Harley 750 doesn’t carry some of the bulk people might associate with the brand. It’s like losing all the weight you put on during the Christmas holiday!

Thanks to a narrow and lean chassis, as well as a narrow seat you can feel your feet being planted even better because you’re not losing your touchdown ability. The Harley 750 doesn’t carry some of the bulk people might associate with the brand. It’s like losing all the weight you put on during the Christmas holiday! It just feels good. When it comes to the 750’s suspension, it’s not jarring and pleasantly soft. Not so soft, that it puts you to sleep, but a good balance of urban comfort mixed with open road riding pleasure. Up front, the 37mm telescopic forks and rear twin tubular externally mounted shocks absorb the bumps in the road and leave the rider feeling fine. However, after a day of logging over 200 kilometres, the rear end does feel a little sleepy! General ergonomics are good, though I would have brought the handlebars a little closer to my body. They’re not a stretch for me, but something that would have made the ride more comfortable.

B.C. high school students show off their skills on video By Bob McHugh

A hands-on ability, whatever the skill, is a talent that tends to go unrecognized and too often, it is underappreciated, even by those who possess the talent. That’s why I was delighted to be asked again to participate as a judge (one of five) in the annual ‘Show Us Your Skills’ competition organized by Discover Skills B.C. for high school students. Students create a short video about a trade or skill that they are interested in pursuing. Prizes for the top three videos are presented to both the student and the high school that they attend. The high level of expertise that some of these kids already possess was remarkable and the video entries this year were outstanding. First prize this year went to Connor Shaw, a student at Traditional Learning Academy in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. He was taught to weld by his uncle, and at age 12 he fabricated a flat deck for a truck he was given. More recently he added a hydraulic lift system that gives the flat deck a dump feature. Connor loves welding and plans to pursue a career in a related trade. Connor will get an Apple MacBook Air and his high school will receive $2,000. The second prize winner was Albert Leung, who attends Steveston-London Secondary in Richmond. Albert will get an Apple iPad Air 16GB and the school will receive $1,000. Bernice Chung, a student at Eric Hamber Secondary, in Vancouver, came third, she will receive an Apple iPad Mini, and $500 goes to the school. Trades can offer a rewarding and fulfilling career path with a higher than average wage level and a solid future. The trades sector in B.C. is expected to face an overall labour shortage by 2016 that will deepen in the following years, according to WorkBC Trades Occupations Outlook (2010-2020) report (www. workbc.ca). A goal of this video competition is to encourage more B.C. students to simply consider a trade as a rewarding career alternative and entice more teachers and high schools to include trades as a career option in the classroom. In the auto service industry, the highly regarded Ford ASSET technician training program is a good example. Locally, apprentices spend four months at BCIT and four months in a B.C. Ford dealership (mainly in the service sector, but also in other departments) on a rotational basis. They can

also choose to specialize in a specific area, such as auto electronics, and get additional upgrade certification courses through Ford training. Most apprentice programs

are four years and on-thejob training is ongoing, especially in the auto service industry. Changes in new technology are rapidly transforming trades, as well as other occupa-

tions. Looking even further ahead, our growing and evolving job market will require skilled, capable people who can adapt to new challenges and new technologies.

Discover Skills B.C. is an initiative, funded by the B.C. government, to help provide easy access for secondary students to opportunities in trades and technology training. The

competition is also run in cooperation with Trades Training B.C., Skills Canada and the Industry Training Authority. My fellow judges for this year’s competition were Mike Holmes, Spencer

Thomson, Suki Takagi and Shelley Robinson. You can look at the top three winning entries online at www.discoverskillsbc.ca. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Wylie and the Other Guy: the married musical duo ted. Today, they mainly perform throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. The duo is very versatile and can play everything from country to 50s and 60s music to pop and the jazz standards. They also have an innate abil-

ity not only to entertain but to also connect with children and seniors. Several years ago, the duo received a phone call from the Coquitlam Legion looking for children’s entertainment. “I put on a clown costume, Martin

put on a shiny hat and jingle berries and Rosie Ribbonstar and Uncle Max appeared!” she enthused. They thought that it would be a one-

you water, please use a water breaker with at least 400-1000 holes at the end of your hose for the most efficient distribution of water into the soil. Using a wand always makes watering much easier as you are not constantly having to bend over. Shallow and frequent watering makes not only your vegetable plants but also your annuals and perennials less self-sufficient and more dependent on watering — so water deeply to push those roots down. Planters and baskets offer a different challenge, especially when it’s so hot. Water them thoroughly in the morning so they’re less stressed during the day. But before you water them again, feel the weight of the basket and make sure it feels light. If it feels heavy, it is already wet enough, and you should wait until it dries out before watering again. Overwatering is worse than under-watering because the roots may rot with too much water, especially with fuchsias. With planters and baskets, it’s important to feed more frequently because you’re leaching out nutrients every time you water. This is where slow-release fertilizers, like 14-14-14, play such an important role in keeping your baskets continually fed, especially when we water so often at this time of the year. Gardening should be enjoyable, so when watering, do it less often and more thoroughly. Focus on watering the root systems and try to water in the morning for the most efficient use of water. Soaker hoses and drip systems are the most effective way to save you time and to use less water.

Neighbours

Duo connects with everyone from kids to seniors ANA from page 25 for the Rosie Ribbonstar Show. “I get my ideas for the songs by watching and listening to kids,” he noted. One day, while we were loading up after a gig, we saw some kids jumping in a puddle. All kids love puddles so I wrote My Puddle Jumping Song. We also noticed how kids love to pretend to be animals and bugs so The Buggie Boogie and Hungry Dog Blues were written. Writing songs isn’t an

easy task. Sometimes, they come up with a great melody but the lyrics don’t fit. Other times, it’s hard to find just the right word or they both like a different word. Through it all, the couple has managed to continue to do what they love. “We can play venues of any size from your living room to Heritage Park and we always try to connect with the kids,” she chuckled. The duo also has a great connection with the older

set and often plays for seniors. “We do have a varied repertoire filled with familiar songs that everyone loves to sing

high energy drums and guitar driven trio that delivers an eclectic mix of rock genres. “We’re really happy with the

from wartime classics to seasonal favourites,” she added with a smile. Recently, they also launched Mojomax, a

new band and it’s another way of adding variety to what we offer.” Away from the stage, the couple loves to go

for long walks. “We love nature and with our hectic lifestyle, it’s a calming thing,” concluded Wylie, with a smile.

Dunn done as Chiefs make deal Apologies to any Chilliwack Chief fans who’d gotten attached to the idea of Madison Dunn, because he’s gone. Acquired in last year’s trade deadline deal for Austin Plevy, the promising young gun leaves without ever playing a game

for the Chiefs — and without ever wanting to play a game for the Chiefs. The Alberta native made that crystal clear after the future considerations part of the Plevy deal with the AJHL’s Brooks Bandits was announced. He didn’t want to go to Chilliwack. So instead, he’ll go to the Pictou County Weeks Crushers in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Mitch Plevy will go with him and in return, the Chiefs get a 19 year old defenceman

with all-star potential. Evan MacEachern joins the Chiefs after two seasons with the Crushers. In 44 games last season the five-foot-10 native of Bedford, NS, scored three goals and 15 assists. He was also a member of Team Canada East at the 2013 World Junior A Challenge, held last November in Yarmouth NS. “We’re very happy to add a smart and mobile defenceman to our lineup,” Tatarnic said. “He is a quality person and will be a

solid addition to our dressing room with his experience on the junior and international stages. He’s pursuing an opportunity at the NCAA level and we feel he has an excellent opportunity to accomplish his goal.” Tatarnic feels MacEachern’s NCAA aspirations will be helped by the BCHL Showcase, with legions of collegiate talent evaluators flocking to Chilliwack for a weekend of games. That’s one reason he seems thrilled to

make the move west. “A goal of mine is to play NCAA division one hockey and getting to play in Chilliwack is a great opportunity to reach that goal,” he said. “I can’t wait to get to know my new hometown and teammates. I have a lot of respect for Jason Tatarnic’s coaching style having played against Woodstock in the MHL (Maritime Hockey League), and look forward to playing for him this season.” Get more at chilliwackchiefs.net

Clapp looks to bounce back at Players Cup Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp missed the cut at the latest PGA Tour Canada stop, bowing out after two rounds of the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open. Teeing off at the Dakota Dunes Golf Links in Saskatoon, Clapp struggled to a seven-over-par 79 in the first round. Clapp carded bogeys on

four of the first nine holes, but the killer was the 12th, with Clapp taking seven shots to clear a par-four hole. He rebounded with birdies on the 13th and 19th holes, but faced a steep uphill climb heading into the second round. Clapp played well on the opening nine, recording three birdies.

But he struggled down the stretch with bogeys on the 11th, 14th and 17th holes, and a double bogey on the 16th. The cut-line was 143. Clapp missed it by 10 strokes. Since finishing in the top 10 at the PGA Tour Canada opener at Point Grey, Clapp’s game has slipped.

He’s missed the cut in two straight events and looks to right the ship at The Players Cup, a tourney that started Thursday and continues through Sunday at Winnipeg’s Pine Ridge Golf Course. Get more scores, schedules and more info online at pgatour.com/canada/en_ us.html

Mission’s Kyle Claggett shot a two-over-par 65 to take top spot at the fourth round of the Optimist Club of Chilliwack’s Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Golf Tour. Claggett competed in the 13-15 year old group, edging Mission native Christopher Dale by one stroke. A third Mission kid, Devin Cutforth, was four strokes back in third. Abbotsford’s Tyson Dyck won the 10-12 year old group by one stroke (74 to 75) over Mission’s Brian Dale. Chilliwack natives went 1-2-3 in the nine-and-under group, with Adam Knodel followed by Lucas Feaver and Adam Weberg. The championship round was played Thursday at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club.

o

Day D at the h beach b h Most golfers completely change their swings when they get in a sand trap, writes Dick Whitlam In today’s column, Chilliwack Golf Academyy instructor Dick Whitlam talks about how to properlyy navigate out of a sand trap. This time of year us golfers have a joke thatt we w e can go to the beach and be playing golf at the same time. This joke refers to sand traps on the golf course. For most people bunkers are a dreaded place to be, but they shouldn’t be. The problem is most golfers completely change their swings when they get in a sand trap, when yyou ou don’t have to. The only thing that should change is your focus as to where you enter the sand. The rule of thumb is this; one to two inches before the ball and one to two inches under the ball will produce a soft shot that lands softly on the green. Some golfers actually try to help lift the ball out of the trap by swinging up at it. Or they will tryy and pick it off the sand. Both are wrong! The correct way to play the shot is to position the ball in the center of your stance or up to two inches forward of the center of your stance. Dig your feet into the sand for better traction. Use your normal swing but aim one to two inches before the ball. Swing in a moderately steep plane and continue one to two inches under the ball. You must swing with w ith conviction and follow through because the sand will act as a pillow. The ball will ride on the sand so you must hit the sand out of the trap. You can vary the height the ball comes out of the trap by increasing or decreasing the loft on your club. This is done by opening the face (increasing loft) or closing the face (decreasing loft). Finish your swing with your weight on your lead leg (left leg for a right hander). Ending your swing with the club face still open will w ill produce higher shots. There are many variations of sand shots and the better you get at them the more fun it is. Justt remember to use your normal swing mechanics and to relax. Have fun on the beach this summer, whether it’s by the water or at the golf course. Dick Whitlam is a class “A”, C.P.G.A teachingg professional p rofessional with the Chilliwack Golf Academy.

Chilliwack pair help save season Gary Ahuja, Black Press When the season began with a pair of losses for Fraser Valley FC’s U14 girls team, things did not look promising. “We did have our ups and downs and we weren’t playing our greatest soccer in the beginning,” said Fraser Valley coach Niko Marcina. A team that includes two Chilliwack girls (Mackenzie Silbernagel and Nikki Gregory) would turn things around with just one loss in their final 10 regular season games (7-12) to place third in the B.C. Soccer Premier League. But Marcina admits it wasn’t until about the six or seven-game mark of the season that his troops really showed what they were capable of.

“The season was off to a shaky start, and we did have our ups and downs and weren’t playing our greatest soccer in the beginning,” he said. “(But then) they really started to connect and we started playing as a team, quality possession-style soccer, and from there it was a turning point. “We wouldn’t just be beating teams, we would be out-possessing and out-playing teams.” Marcina said both he and assistant coach Craig MacEwen instilled two things in the players: work ethic and hard work always pay off; and it is not about the individual, but all about team effort. “I think the combination of those two, they persevered and at the end of the day, they came out with a phenomenal result,” Marcina said. The phenomenal

result the coach was referring to was a 3-2 victory over top-ranked Mountain United FC in the finals of the Provincial Premier Cup. The game was played at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park with the U13, U14, U16 and U18 girls finals on June 29. This was the third time Fraser Valley FC — which is made up of players from Chilliwack FC, Langley FC, Aldergrove Youth Soccer and Abbotsford’s Magnuson Ford Mariners FC — had played Mountain United, with the Valley team managing a loss and a draw in the first two contests. The championship final was a back and forth affair with quality chances for both sides, Marcina said. Mountain was ahead 1-0 at the half before Gregory netted the equalizer 15 minutes into the second half.

With 10 minutes to play, Mountain forged ahead once again, but Fraser Valley drew a penalty kick with five minutes remaining and Sabrina Anderson tied the score at two. And then during injury time, Lauren Sylvan was able to break in behind the Mountain defence and struck for what turned out to be the winning goal in the 3-2 victory. “The Mountain girls have been together for numerous years, and hands down, they are a very, very good team, fantastic team, they play very good soccer, so being able to come out with a victory — especially when it is something as big as a Provincial Cup — is a tremendous feat,” Marcina said. The win qualifies Fraser Valley for the national championships this October in Prince Edward Island.
