Zombies don’t run. The ones purists are familiar with from the George E. Romero films, aren’t capable of running. Intead, they shamble, lurch, and limp. And they groan a lot while they’re doing it. So it only made sense that, rather than joining the roughly 150 runners at the start line at Campbell Valley Regional Park for the Vancouver Zombie Fun Run early Sunday morning, the nine folks who volunteered to play the role of the “undead” stationed themselves at strategic points along the route and lunged at participants as they jogged past. The one rule that all of the volunteer zombies had to follow was simple – they could approach the runners, but under no circumstance were

A fight at a Langley downtown pub resulted in the death of a well-known Langley homeless man on Monday night. Wells Tony Gallagher, 37, was found by Langley RCMP in the 20300 block of Fraser Highway just after 7 p.m. He was taken to hospital in critical condition and later died. After a brief foot chase, local Mounties caught and arrested David Christopher Van Den Brink, 21, now charged with second degree murder. Van Den Brink, of no fixed address, is

known to police, said Sgt. Stephanie Ashton of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. Van Den Brink remains in custody as of Wednesday morning. The daylight altercation in a busy part of downtown Langley meant many people saw at least part of the incident. “Multiple witnesses came forward to provide information to police,” said Ashton. “This community support, coupled with the partnership between IHIT and the Langley RCMP, is responsible for investigators obtaining charge approval relatively quickly.” The area around the murder scene was taped off for an investigation that lasted through the night and into Tuesday morning, when normal traffic was allowed to resume.

Bylaw No. 2957 – Zoning Amendment and Development Permit DP 05-15 Purpose: To amend the Zoning Bylaw, 1996, No. 2100 to add a new Comprehensive Development Zone (CD40) and to rezone the properties located at 5463, 5473, 5479, 5489 – 200 Street from RS1 Single Family Residential Zone to CD40 Comprehensive Development Zone in order to accommodate a 4-storey, 57-unit condominium apartment building.

Trinity Western University was back in court starting June 1 for a judicial review of the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) decision, which refused accreditation for TWU law school grads. TWU President Bob Kuhn was among those attending the four days of hearings. A panel of three judges were hearing the arguments for and against the LSUC’s decision – a 2821 vote last April – against allowing future TWU law school graduates to practise in Ontario.

The private Christian university claims it is being discriminated against by law societies that refuse to accredit its law grads. The law societies of Ontario and Nova Scotia said they would not accredit the grads because the school discriminates by mandating that students sign the covenant. Among other things, it forbids sex outside marriage which it defines as a union between a man and a woman. TWU appealed the decision in Nova Scotia and won.

Firehall in service for 60 years For its birthday, the Brookswood hall is having a party. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

For 60 years, when a fire raged or a car crashed in southwest Langley, Firehall Five has been the first called out. The Brookswood hall is celebrating its 60th year this Saturday with a big open house for the community. For many years, the hall was located at 40th Avenue and 200th Street, near the heart of Brookswood’s main business area, said Matt Gillam, a paid-call firefighter and Hall Five’s president. That older hall was too small and outdated, and in the early 1990s the new hall was built on 32nd Avenue, just south of the most populated parts of the community and with easy

Kids and adults will be able to try out some firefighting equipment this Saturday at the Brookswoood hall’s 60th anniversary event. access in and out. The new location had a lot of room, for training firefighters, but also for community events and open houses in the hall’s meeting room. The hall has always been a part of the community, Gillam said, and local firefighters have been active hosting fundraisers for muscular dystrophy and Alzheimer’s research,

as well as for the Langley Animal Protection Society, Critter Care, and the Langley Food Bank. Every year the firefighters do an annual Candy Cane Run and hand out Christmas treats to kids around Brookswood. The hall also supports two scholarships, at Brookswood Secondary and Langley Fundamental, rewarding those students

who want to go into the protective services as a career. This Saturday, for the big anniversary, the hall has invited Township and City firefighters, including both antique fire trucks owned by the local fire services. In addition local groups like the RCMP, BC Ambulance, Fraser Valley Search and Rescue, Crimewatch, and the Township firefighters’ charitable society will be taking part. Those keen to see or take part in firefighting activities will have plenty to do. There will be a mini-hose coupling competition every hour, and there will be an auto-extraction demo, with the jaws of life fired up to show how firefighters rescue people trapped in their cars. There will be extra parking available at the nearby school. The firehall is located at 20355 32nd Ave., and the anniversary event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Smoke billowed from an industrial building on Production Way May 28.

INDUSTRY

Site smoked out MATTHEW CLAXTON

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

It took nearly a full day for Langley City and Township firefighters to douse a stubborn smoldering fire at CKF Inc. on Production Way. City firefighters responded to the fire at around 11:30 a.m. May 28, said City fire chief Rory Thompson. “There was a considerable amount of smoke,” he said of the fire near Fraser Highway. The fire was in the back of the large industrial building, and the complexity and size of the fire quickly led the City to go to three alarms. That brought in some Township crews to lend a hand. Eight engines, several other vehicles, and 52 firefighters were deployed to deal with the fire. The actual fire didn’t do too much damage to the building. > More at langleyadvance.com

Watering bans start Market opens later Less snow means less water for local reservoirs.

MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

With low snowpacks and river levels in southern B.C., watering restrictions for Langley and the rest of Metro Vancouver arrived this week. The seasonal restrictions take effect from June 1 to Sept. 30 to conserve Metro Vancouver’s drinking water. “With this year’s record low snowpack and unseasonably warm start to the summer season, we encourage all residents and businesses to do the right thing and conserve water whenever possible,” said Metro Vancouver

• h e a t • g l a r e • f a d e

Board chair Greg Moore. Watering lawns will be permitted during the morning but banned during the evening, when domestic use for dishwashing, laundry, and showers spikes. Since 1993, per capita water use in Metro Vancouver has gone down 27 per cent. Aldergrove and other parts of East Langley are expected to join the Metro Vancouver water supply later this summer. The East Langley Water Supply Project, dealing with some construction delays, is now expected to be completed by around Aug. 7. Through May and into the summer, the contractors will be finishing installing the last 800 metres of 15 kilometres of pipeline that will connect the Metro Vancouver system to East Langley.

The Farm & Maker Market that was supposed to start May 31 at the George Preston Recreation Centre has changed its plans. “We unfortunately had to cancel some dates our grand opening is now July 11 with markets running every second weekend after that – July 25, Aug. 9, Aug. 22 and Sept. 6,” representative Cary Campbell said in an email May 30. The market run 1 to 6 p.m. on those dates. All the funds created will go towards creating a Buy Local website where people can search and buy local products or find a local artisan as well as running advertisements in local newspapers promoting members. “At some point, soon we want to also create a program where people can apply for micro loans to help get their new business or projects off the ground,” Campbell added.

Reality – what a wacky concept

worry future generations won’t have a complete picture of how weird our world really is. Most of our society is reality-based, or close to it. But there are many corners of the world ruled by the conspiracy theorists, and without understanding them, we can’t understand our own times. Conspiracy theories tell us a lot about the anxieties and aspirations we feel as a society. A conspiracy theorist isn’t usually mentally ill. Your average conspiracy kook is someone with typical brain functioning who has gone down a rabbit hole and believes in some odd things, but is otherwise a mostly functional member of society. Conspiracy theories come in all shapes and sizes, and many of them don’t even involve the usual suspects of evil governments and millionaires. One of the oldest is the Blood Libel, the 2,000year-old lie that Jews murder Christian children. More recently, the Satanic Panic of the 1980s was the idea that secret cults of Satanists were scattered through all of society. That panic helped send multiple innocent people to jail, accused of molesting children. At the other end of the scale of harmfulness, but with incredible staying power, is the conspiracy theory known as the Shakespeare authorship question. Going back to the 1800s, this is the idea

Painful Truth

axing wealthy property speculators is always going to be a popular proposition. Taxing wealthy, allegedly foreign property speculators who are driving the middle classes out of the detached housing market? It sounds like a sure fire winner. A new Insights West poll found 73 per cent of B.C. residents agree that taxing absentee homeowners to quell real estate speculation is a pretty darned good idea. But what kind of a tax would deter speculation? Take a look at the last 10 years of real estate values in the Lower Mainland. According to Fraser Valley Real Estate Board figures, the value of a detached house went up 80.8 per cent in the Lower Mainland in the last decade. That’s a pretty good rate of return compared to most stock markets, and unlike the Dow Jones or NASDAQ, there haven’t been nearly as many decreases in housing prices. So sure, tax absentee home ownership. But unless you make the tax incredibly onerous, don’t expect it to change the behaviour of the investors much. After all, if you buy a $3 million mansion just so you can flip it for $4 million in a couple of years, what’s the problem with paying $50,000 in extra taxes a year? That’s still a fraction of the expected profit. Given how intense the market for housing is in B.C. right now, any speculators who do exist are likely to just tack that onto the selling price anyway. Adding to the complications is figuring out what “absentee” is. A foreign buyer might rent their home, hire a decent property manager, and be an overall good landlord. Meanwhile, a born-and-bred B.C. resident could be flipping properties like mad. Are rented properties to be exempt? How long do they have to be empty before they qualify for any tax? There’s been a lot of speculation about speculators, but with little hard information, any tax is likely to be ineffective, easily avoided, or to hit the wrong targets entirely. – M.C.

Letters to the editor

Too much spent on ads Dear Editor, Not that there’s any lack of entries in this category, but you can add government advertising to the list of things-politiciansoppose-until-they’re-inpower. As the curtain begins to come down on the Lower Mainland’s TransLink tax plebiscite, B.C. taxpayers have been reminded what happens when politicians have hold of our chequebooks during an election campaign. While we scrimp and sacrifice and pay our taxes to ostensibly fund critical services like public safety, health and education; politicians line up to spend it on flashy ads designed to help them get more votes. It’s the way it’s always been, apparently. In opposition in 1999, Christy Clark hammered the NDP government for spending $700,000 in taxpayer money on advertising their budget. In 2013, the government-opposition roles

Wider 208th St. is needed soon Dear Editor, I have been waiting for action regarding a statement made by Mayor Jack Froese. This was concerning the widening of the 208th Street connector and that it could be paid for by the Township. At the time I thought this was a great idea and showed real character on his behalf. This initiative would ease the everyday stress of the commuters and residents along this vital corridor. This is similar to the great foresight shown by a previous administration on the construction of the 208th Street overpass. I have not changed my opinion in the intervening months. Having the township head up the project would definitely speed up the process; instead of waiting for five to seven years, its benefits could be realized in two. Even if this idea is rejected by the planning department, I wish to thank Jack Froese, the Mayor of the Township of Langley, for at least trying to put all the residents of the municipality first. Bruce Jones, Langley

mended that government prohibit partisan political information in government communications, and put together specific guidelines setting out what should or should not be included in ads. While the Canadian Taxpayers Federation generally chafes at the idea of adding another government committee, it’s clear no party, of any political stripe, can be trusted to do the right thing when it comes to advertising on our dime. At least not once they form government. It seems politicians will spend anything to get re-elected, especially when it’s taxpayers footing the bill. It’s time to put pressure on them to close the chequebook and campaign with their own money – not ours. Jordan Bateman Canadian Taxpayers Federation

Board steps too drastic

Dear Editor, I was very disappointed at the tone of the special general meeting Tuesday, May 26 held at the Langley Senior Resource Society. I am one of the group of concerned members, who questioned their actions that appeared to be non-compliant with the bylaws and constitution of the Langley Senior Resource Society. According to the board, our concern for the centre has put us into the category of bullies for the rest of the meeting. We want the membership to know that our petition, signed by 250 of the membership, asked for a meeting to review the actions of the current board of directors where said actions did not follow the bylaws as listed in the Senior Resource Society Constitution, as well as a review of staffing changes and iniquities during the last six months. However, the board called the meeting and set the agenda. We were very shocked that they proposed a resolution for the removal of the board. We did not asked for nor did we want such a drastic step as they took. We are volunteers who have for many years have worked tirelessly for the betterment of the centre and its members. Jan Scheuerman, Langley

MOTORCYCLES

Ride for Doug ready to roll in South Langley Motorcyclists are riding for those living with muscular dystrophy in Canada. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

There’s still time and room to register for a motorcycle ride in honour of a Langley boy with muscular dystrophy, and others living with the crippling disease. Ride For Doug started in 2007 by Cam Penner, whose son Doug has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). According to

Muscular Dystrophy Canada, DMD is an inherited disorder. The muscles become weaker as the patient gets older. With Doug as the inspiration, the ninth annual ride is this Sunday, June 7 and people can register for the ride and/or donate to Muscular Dystrophy Canada at www.ridefordoug.com.

“Doug is, and always will be, my Little Biker,” Cam said on the website. “He was two years old when the shock of a Duchenne muscular dystrophy diagnosis turned our world upside down faster than a high side at Sears Point.” Sunday’s fundraiser, with registration starting at noon, is a three-

to four-hour ride through the Lower Mainland and starts and ends at South Langley Church, 20098 22nd Ave. Registration for the ride is $20, but this fee is waived if participants arrive with $50 or more in donations. All funds not collected online will be collected on the ride day.

16th Annual Brookswood Village Summerfest

Theresa Wiebe Photography

Doug Penner is the inspiration behind the annual Ride For Doug fundraiser . A barbecue following the ride is included for all riders and their passengers, and is by donation for everyone else. Pre-registration is appreciated and can be done so online at www.ridefordoug. com. “It is very stressful cooking for 300 to 400 people,” Cam said. “I’d rather people sign up and not show

up, than not sign up because they aren’t positive.” The ride is all about raising funds and awareness to help those living with muscular dystrophy, and their families. There will be prizes for the top fundraising riders, and donations are accepted. > More at langleyadvance.com

Rediscovering the classic Model A Old cars and farming’s past converge at Model A Sunday. RONDA PAYNE news@langleyadvance.com

As the years tick past, those who know what a rumble seat is diminishes. Plows pulled by horses? Some wonder if that ever actually happened. Rediscover the history of farming and cars together at Model A Sunday on June 7 at the BC Farm Museum at 9131 King St. in Fort Langley from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The museum houses the province’s largest collection of agricultural and pioneer artifacts. From the kitchen to the fields, getting around to getting it done, there is no more diverse illustration of how B.C.’s pioneers used to manage their days and their lives. Coupled with that collec-

Noel Cleveland [shown] and Mike McVay coorganized the 27th annual Model A Sunday coming to Fort Langley. tion on Sunday will be cars from 1932 and older lining King Street, according to Model A Sunday organizers Mike McVay and Noel Cleveland. “If it’s a nice day, we’re going to get a lot of people,” said McVay. Last year was a well attended event with about 55 cars and approximately 250 visitors. “We’re hoping for some real antique cars,” McVay

added, noting that anything from 1932 and older is welcome to enter in the show. “Bring it on down,” he said, including those cars that have been modified or turned into hotrods. It’s the 27th year for the show, and Cleveland noted it’s an important event because it’s one of the few focused on the older cars. “We try and attract people to come and see it [Model A Sunday] and see

the museum,” Cleveland said. “We use the whole street, sometimes both sides,” he added. This year, organizers are hoping to see members of the steam car club join in and expect cars as old as 1910s and 1912s to be on display. “There’s always a few hotrods,” commented Cleveland. There will be hamburgers

and smokies for sale by the Fort Langley Lions club. Cleveland’s 1931 Ford slant window won’t be at the show, but McVay will have his 1928 Pontiac on site. “We’re open to all makes and models,” he said. “So long as it’s pre1932.” McVay will also be at the Pontiac show to be held at the Coast Hotel and Cascades Casino parking lot on Sunday, June 14.

CLASSIC AUTOS

Preston’s invites Langley ’Vette lovers From the old to the new, Corvettes will be out rain or shine. RONDA PAYNE news@langleyadvance.com

Given the six plus decades of iconic status the Chevrolet Corvette has enjoyed, it’s no surprise there is a show (or two or three) dedicated to the cars put on by the BC Corvette Club. On Sunday, May 7 a Corvette show and shine will be hosted jointly by the club and Preston’s Chevrolet, where the event is held, at 200th Street and #10 Highway. It runs rain or shine and obviously organizers like Preston’s general sales manager Andrew Butterworth and Gary Clarke of the BC Corvette

Langley Advance files

Corvette lovers of classic models to new, high horsepower options will have plenty to look at on Sunday at Preston’s. Club, are hoping for sun. Sun not only means a nicer day to walk around and talk about what ’Vette enthusiasts love, it also means a few more cars on display. “We get 100-plus on a nice day,” said Clarke. But even if the weather doesn’t

co-operate, the turnout is still expected to be great. About 80 cars were on the lot a couple of years ago under cloudy, drizzling skies. The show opens to the public at 10 a.m. with entrants arriving at 9 a.m. The whole thing wraps up at 5 p.m. That’s a lot of time to admire more than 60 years of Corvette style in pure stock versions to custom models. Expected on the lot are the new Corvette C7 Stingray and a new C7 Z06. “There’s the new Corvette C7 Stingray, it’s been out about a year now, but it is available a bit better now,” said Butterworth. “[There will also be] a new Z06 Corvette... that car is a really high horsepower model... this is the first year that we’ll see the Z06 at the show. They are very rare cars.” Clarke adds to the list of what

will be seen at the show and shine. “There’ll be some C1s from the ’50s and ’60s,” he said. “And there will be all levels of cars all the way through C1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.” The majority of those bringing cars for display will be BC Corvette Club members, but for $10, nonmembers are invited to show their Corvettes as well. This, the 13th annual show and shine at the Langley car dealership coincides with the 50th anniversary of the BC Corvette Club. “We have three [show and shine events] a year, so this is one of those three,” Clarke said. “Because it’s the club’s 50th anniversary, we’re going to have a special one in August in Whistler.” More than anything, the event is a social one where Corvette enthusiasts can share, check each other’s cars out, and talk about them, added Clarke.

Belmont Elementary staged Seussical in late May and would make Broadway green with envy – sell out crowds at each show. The school stages a lavish musical every two years and just finished performing the show to more than 1,500 people over three days. The school does the show every two years because it mounts such a big production. Sets fill about a third of the gym, towering up to the ceiling.

Horton the Elephant was played by Nico Gerussi. The school community helped construct sets, and with costumes and other elements of the elaborate show. “We just have an incredible community who did this,” commented teacher Jamie Thomas. Having a two year window for each production also means the students – those

on stage, those in the choir and those in the crews – are well rehearsed before the show and the result, at least in the May 28 production, was a standing ovation. “The amount of learning for the students and the staff in the school has been incredible,” said principal Calvin Leung. > More photos at langleyadvance.com

Dear Anne,

I have three beautiful plum trees, two to three years old. One tree has a large number of growths. The other two trees are also getting this growth. Can this be managed, or will I have to cut down the trees at the end of the season?

in spring and drift around on the wind. Pruning out the black-knot infected area is the easiest and most inexpensive way of controlling it. You need to remove the small infected branches about three inches nearer the trunk than the knot extends. If you have any very large infected trunks or big branches that you don’t want to lose, you need to get a chisel or a dremel

unnecessary. But if your tree shows a prolonged or very fast drip, you might check if your local garden centre does stock it. The cans of old-fashioned pruning paint used to go dry quite fast when stored – a good thing to be prepared for. Gardeners in blackknot infested areas routinely check plum trees each winter and prune them if they find infection.

Trees add beauty and texture to a garden but need attention, too.

You won’t have to cut down your trees. All that’s needed is regular pruning each winter. The first pruning might be fairly extensive. But later prunings won’t be as bad because fewer spores will be able to spread. Your plum trees have black knot. It’s a common fungal disease which in time can kill plum, damson or sometimes cherry trees. Black knot spreads from wild and cultivated cherries and plums when spores mature

Dear Anne,

Vancouver

If you can dig it up and get it in a pot without damaging the root, you might keep it for a few years as an outdoor potted Christmas tree. Native evergreens such as Douglas firs grow far too large to be suitable or safe for the average city lot. Needles and cones plug gutters and litter patios. Big branches fall in storms and can dent cars (and people). Because they also seed around abundantly, Douglas firs are often viewed as weeds. That’s why it may be difficult to arouse interest from plant clubs or landscapers. Assuming you do get it potted-up in good shape, you might ask if the Vancouver Parks Department could use it. The Van Dusen Gardens may also have helpful advice. Where Douglas firs fit in well is on large rural acreages away from houses. These trees freshen air and are a beautiful haven for wildlife. I wonder if you have any relatives on a large rural property who, at Christmas, might be receptive to a potted Christmas tree with a few ornaments.

CHEF DEZ

In part 1 (published May 21) Chef Dez offered tips to get more produce into the family diet. Here’s more tips. Make sure to have lettuce, tomato and onions on hand for sandwiches. Have containers of washed berries and grapes, or of “grab & go” fruit, like bananas, apples, etc. Vegetable skewers on the grill are low fat and flavourful.

LangleyAdvance SUMMER FUN

Event is going to the dogs The Family Fun Day includes a canine costume contest, prizes and activities. RONDA PAYNE news@langleyadvance.com

It’s finally happened. Retailers in Willowbrook Park have gone to the dogs. Not literally of course, but there will be a number of companion pooches strutting their stuff at the Canine Costume Contest held beside Red Robin at the corner of 200th Street and the Langley Bypass on Sunday, June 7. It’s all part of the second annual Family Fun Day hosted by Bentall Kennedy and retailers in the large open shopping complex. Not only will Bentall Kennedy be giving out prizes and running activities kids will love, but retailers will be getting in on the action too, according to property manager Charlotte Cooper. “We’ll have radio [QM/FM] on location announcing things we’re doing, like when it’s time to spin the wheel” Cooper said. “And, we’ll be announcing when retailers are doing things.” The Spin-To-Win-Wheel is just one of the planned activ-

Face painting and a climbing wall are some of the many free activities at this year’s Family Fun Day Sunday. ities. Guests can spin and win great goodies donated by retailers. “What happens is that all the tenants that are participating [in Family Fun Day] give something free or very substantial [as a prize for the wheel],” she said. There will also be a balloon artist, face painting, photo booth, and train rides for the kids. Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) is even setting up a climbing wall in front of its location and is hosting the

annual MEC Bikefest on the same day behind the store. The family fun will all be found near the Red Robin and kicks off at 11 a.m., running until 3 p.m. The free hot dog barbeque for the first 300 people is sponsored by M&M Meat Shops and Canada Safeway, which donated the product. “We have about 300 hot dogs to give away,” added Cooper. Then there’s the Canine Costume Contest at 1:30 p.m. which is exactly what it sounds like. Dress up your pooch for a chance to win prizes. “The owners wanted it,” Cooper said. “They wanted to have a costume contest for dogs.” Prizes will be awarded for the overall top dog, best homemade costume, and best owner/dog look-a-like, as well as runner-ups. Those interested in getting their dog all gussied up should pre-register by clicking on the costume contest link at willowbrookpark.ca. All of the activities at Family Fun Day are free.

GOODWILL

Ladies get makeovers It’s been an unforgettable month for two Aldergrove women. Each year, through the Aldergrove Seventh-day Adventist Church, volunteers renovate the homes of families in need through the Acts of Kindness Extreme Home Repair program. And not only did Misty Shufflebotham and Laura Canessa have their homes renovated, courtesy of the volunteers and businesses involved with the program, they also received a personal makeover. On May 13, Canessa and Shufflebotham received VIP treatment, each receiving a free pedicure, manicure, facial, and massage, the result of a donation from Langley realtor Diane Sparks-Cassidy in partnership with Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology, which not only provided the services but also helped cover costs for the pampering. > More at langleyadvance.com

RECREATION

Seniors turn to unique fusion sport for fun Pickleball’s popularity continues to rise. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

A

sport that fuses tennis, ping pong, and badminton, and is named after Pickles the pooch, turned a half-century this year. And its popularity in Langley and around the world is rising at a meteoric rate. Pickleball got its start back in 1965 in Bainbridge Island, Wash., the brainchild of Joel Pritchard, William Bell, and Barney McCallum. One summer’s day, they handed their kids ping pong paddles and a Wiffle ball, and lowered the net on their badminton court. According to McCallum, the game was officially named after the Prichards’ dog Pickles which would chase the ball and run off with it In 1972, pickleball was officially incorporated to keep up with demand for paddles, balls, nets, and other gear.

T

oday, Langley is one of pickleball’s many hubs. The sport is so popular locally, last year City of Langley staff painted lines specific to pickleball on the tennis courts beside Douglas Park Community School. John Robertson not only competed in pickleball at the 2014 BC Seniors Games in Langley, he also helped with the registration and organization of the sport at last summer’s event. The Langley resident has played pickleball for the past two-anda-half years and noted that it’s one of the fastest growing sports in North America. To wit: just 24 competitors played pickleball at the 2012 BC Seniors Games in Burnaby. Two years ago at the Kamloops Games, the number grew to 120, and for last September’s Games in Langley, 252 pickleball players played on six courts inside the Walnut Grove Community Centre. But the game isn’t just for seniors, Robertson stressed: “It’s a tremendous workout, it’s easy to play, easy to learn, and

Robertson is currently rated by the USAPA Pickleball as a 3.5 level player. In northern climes, pickleball is played indoors at rec centres but in the south it’s an outdoor game.

A total of 26 pickleball players played at the Douglas Park tennis courts on a recent Sunday. (Lower right) Pickleball enthusiast John Robertson demonstrated a volley at the Douglas Park tennis courts recently. in some of the schools, they’re beginning to teach it, now.” The rules are fairly simple. According to pickleball.com, players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net, to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring 11 points and leading by at least two points wins. Pickleball can be played with singles or

doubles. Robertson said pickleball is “addictive.” “It’s a game that we can play as seniors, relatively easily, yet the competitive level of play can escalate,” he said. “There are ratings from 2.5 to five, five being a very good player. You can play it at any level; it’s a very social game and it’s lots of fun although there’s a competitive component to it.”

players from all ages, from teenagers to seniors. Arizona is where Robertson picked up the sport and continues to hone his skills. “At Palm Creek, 60 per cent of the residents are Canadians, so we come back home in the summer looking to play pickleball,” Robertson said. The challenge is, the indoor courts are often being used primarily for other activities and summer programs, “so it reduces our play,” Robertson said, adding that in the entire Lower Mainland, there isn’t one dedicated pickleball court. Local players are heading outdoors to get their pickleball fix. On a recent Sunday, 26 players used the two courts at Douglas Park. In the Lower Mainland, Troy Landreville/Langley Advance Fraser Valley Pickleball (www.fraservalleypickleor three to four ball.org) organizes six months each winter, tournaments each year in Robertson resides in various regional facilities.

“I was sort of thinking maybe this will be my last year, but I don’t know for sure, yet,” he said. “We’ll have to see how things go.” “It’s a year-by-year thing,” Irwin added. “When you get to our age, it’s if you feel good, and it doesn’t hurt, do it!” You’d have to go back to 61 years ago to find the only time Tourond has ever been hurt in a race car, when as a 17year-old, he wiped out while buzzing around with friends. “I’m trying to figure out how many laps I’ve done in my lifetime and basically I was hurt in a race car before I ever started racing,” Tourond said. “I broke my hand but that was stupidity. I was in a race car and I turned the thing upside down. We had no seat belts in it, we had no helmets on, and we were out there just messing around on a Sunday afternoon.”

Aldergrove driver Al Tourond and his crew chief George Irwin make up the ‘150 Yr. Old Team.’ each other at Langley Speedway in the ’60s and ’70s,” Tourond said. “Three years ago I was racing at Agassiz and he came down to the pits. I knew who he was but I really didn’t know him. So I said to him, ‘If you want to come down to the pits, you’re welcome.’ Now, without him, I wouldn’t do was well as I do.” Irwin said if he had the money, he’d be racing again, “without a doubt.” Last year, the 150 Yr. Old Race Team travelled to Merritt Speedway, where Tourond raced on dirt for the first time since 1979. “We did really well,” Tourond said. “I won the Trophy Dash and the heat race and then I crashed in the main.” Tourond’s sons

Paul, 53, Rick, 52, and Keith, 49, have either raced, or are still racing competitively. “I race against Keith and Rick,” noted the family patriarch, whose appeal to the sport is purely visceral. “It’s a rush,” Tourond said. “It’s like taking drugs. I think it’s better than drugs because you don’t come down. Even George gets that way. When I come into the pits and I do well, he’s as high as I am.” Tourond – whose first race car was a 1933 Ford Coupe Flathead V8 that he raced at C.N.E. Toronto, Flamboro, Wasaga Beach, and Southshore Speedway in Barrie, Ont., – is having so much fun, he’s not planning on retiring anytime soon.

“Legend” isn’t a word that should be casually tossed around, but it slides in nicely between “motorsports” and “Al Tourond.” Inducted into the B.C. Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2010, the Aldergrove resident is still buzzing around the Agassiz Speedway oval – and still winning races and trophies. Not bad for a guy who celebrated his 78th birthday May 5. On May 23, Tourond, whose track nickname is “Papa Smurf,” captured the Trophy Dash at Agassiz Speedway. “I started racing back in the ’60s,” said Tourond, who drove at the former Langley Speedway oval. One of his greatest accomplishments was being the first Canadian to win a track championship at Skagit Speedway, in 1979. Tourond’s latest ride is a modified 1980 Camaro, and his crew chief is 75-year-old George Irwin. Together, they’re known as the 150 Yr. Old Race Team. “We raced against

Permanent Cosmetics also benefits the vision challenged and others that have difficulty applying their cosmetics due to dexterity related conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, or multiple sclerosis. Permanent Cosmetic procedures can be very subtle or dramatic. Options include eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner and/ or colour, scar camouflage, beauty marks, hair imitation, lash enhancement, and areola re-pigmentation.

A:

When purchasing a pre-owned home, find out what year is was built, calling it an “old timer” won’t work when applying for insurance. It’s important to have an inspection done and understand what the deficiencies mean. The year of updates and renovations on homes is required, especially if the home is over 20 years old. The key areas for updates are the: Roof, Heating, Electrical, Plumbing & Age of the Hot Water Tank. Homes with aluminum wiring are becoming difficult to insure.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a new painless non-invasive treatment for these repetitive injuries that can take away the pain and accelerate the healing process.

Granite has beautiful natural patterns, and is strong enough for kitchens. We recommend sealing every so often to avoid stain buildup. Engineered Quartz is less expensive than most granite and is becoming a new trend. It is very durable and strong, and won’t stain. There is also a selection with natural patterns besides the well-known uniformed patterns. Corian is primarily made from acrylic and polyester and provides a solid surface. It is non-porous and maintenance free. Selection is wide but it’s a bit costly. Marble provides smooth patterns. However, it is very susceptible to stains even when sealed, and is generally not as strong as other materials.

Q: What are the advantages of buying a higher quality paint?

Will putting him in Martial Arts encourage him to be more aggressive?

A:

A higher quality paint will be more durable for everyday use. You can expect less preparation and a longer-lasting finish. Improved flowing agents will help your paint level and minimize brush and roller marks. A high quality paint will help your bright colours stay bright longer and increase the longevity of your paint. Water-based latex paints will make for easy application and clean up. A built in primer will help your paint’s hide and improve coverage, so you need fewer coats. Mildew resistance and excellent adhesion makes a higher quality paint the right choice for any job you’re about to take on. I recommend trying our Dulux “Diamond” brand!

years for children to hit. Frustration, anger, curiosity, impatience, and fear, are just a few reasons why. In the case of a child who shows aggression, channeling their energy into a positive and disciplined Martial Arts program will help reverse negative behaviors, while increasing confidence and self-esteem. A professional school with skilled and knowledgeable instructors helps children develop strong self-control, and self-discipline. Learning Martial Arts in a controlled environment with clearly defined rules of application, ensures safety and fun for all participants, and dramatically lessens the potential of negative actions directed towards others.

public notice Be Wild Animal Aware The Township of Langley is full of wildlife habitat, and residents share the area with animals including bears, cougars, and coyotes. While residents throughout Langley do not need to be continually on alert, there are a number of actions that can be taken to deter wild animals if they are spotted in your area. Parents are encouraged to educate their children on what to do if they encounter any of these animals, especially if they play by themselves in areas that wildlife frequent or have been seen in the past.

WARNING Langley has a large deer population

To help people coexist with creatures that are simply trying to survive but can be dangerous if provoked, the following information is offered:

Bears: are looking for food - don’t let them learn it

can easily be obtained from humans. If you encounter a bear, do not run. Act big and loud, and back away slowly to a safe place.

Cougars: can have kittens throughout the year, and family groups can be seen at any time. Cougars survive on natural food sources found in the wild, primarily deer.

Cougar attacks on humans are highly unlikely. However, if you encounter a cougar, do not run. Pick children up immediately and talk to the cougar in a confident voice. Act big by waving sticks and branches, and back away slowly while still facing the cougar. If it attacks, fight back.

USE CAUTION ON ROADS

Coyotes: have the largest population of potentially dangerous wildlife in the area and can be seen year round, even in residential areas. Coyotes are bold and easily lose their natural fear of people. Never feed a coyote. If you encounter a

In Agricultural Areas:

coyote, scare it off by making loud noise or throwing something at it to make it afraid. Never ignore a coyote. If it continues to approach, do not run. Maintain eye contact, pick up small pets or children, and slowly move to an area of increased activity.

In Residential Areas: Reduce the smell of food by keeping barbecues clean. Keep pet food inside. Garbage is the biggest attraction for bears so keep it secure and inaccessible to wildlife. Do not leave garbage cans out overnight: keep them in the house, a locked garage, or secured outbuilding that cannot be broken into by large, smart bears. Put them out only on the morning of collection. If you are worried about odour, keep garbage in the freezer until collection day. Do not use bird feeders, as they attract bears and the birds do not need seeds when other natural food sources are available. This is the time of year to be extra vigilant with small pets, especially cats, in areas where coyotes are around.

Protect your investment by keeping fences secure and free of damage that predators can use for access. Coyotes burrow, so ensure surrounding netting goes deep into the ground. Use electric fencing to deter bears from blueberries and beehives, and pick berries and fruit as they ripen. Be vigilant with livestock and keep them secure. Farm animals are usually killed at night, so bring them inside in the evening. It is an offence to attract wildlife into a residential neighbourhood. Those who do not take steps to deter bears and other wild creatures can face a fine of up to $575. To report poachers or polluters or if you have a problem with wildlife call: Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) 1.877.952.7277

The hard-working 21-year-old is bound for the University of Alabama in Huntsville, after scoring 30 points (11 goals, 19 assists) in his first and only B.C. Hockey League season in 2014/15.

Paddling sisters secure Team BC spots Meghan and Lauryn Cheung secured two of four kayak spots on Team BC, that’s heading to the Western Canada Summer Games. Sisters with the Fort Langley Canoe Club (FLCC) have secured coveted spots on Team BC after a dominating performance at the BC Cup #1 regatta, held May 24 at Burnaby Lake. This was the first in a series of regattas hosted by Canoe Kayak BC, for development athletes. This year it was held in conjunction with trials for Team BC, where athletes were selected to attend the 2015 Western Canada Summer Games. Team BC’s Canoe/Kayak contingent will be represented by 16 paddlers, including eight male and eight female athletes, all under the age of 19. Siblings and FLCC members

Meghan and Lauryn Cheung secured two of the four female kayak spots with exceptional performances at the trials. “Hard work and commitment over the winter training months has paid off. These girls worked hard for it, doing early mornings and late nights to get their training in,” FLCC coach Ben Muench said. “It’s great to see Fort Langley well represented on the WCSG team. We’re looking forward to some fast races in Wood Buffalo in August.”

Olympians face elite competition Hilary Metcalfe led Langley’s indoor swim club at the Mel Zajac Junior International.

A half dozen Langley Olympians were tested in UBC Aquatic Centre waters in Vancouver recently. The Vancouver Pacific Swim Club hosted the 2015 Mel Zajac Junior International and six members of the Langley Olympians Swim Club qualified for the high-level meet. Also in attendance were 350 swimmers representing teams from Washington State, Oregon, Alberta, Ontario, and Puerto Rico. The long course (50 metre pool) meet consisted of heats and finals. Due to the high level of the meet, there were three finals for each event: A, B and C, with the 24 top swimmers in each event making a second swim. There were no age groups; all swimmers raced each other regardless of their age. Hilary Metcalfe, 17, made second swims in all but one of her events, placing fourth in 400m IM, fourth in the 50m breaststroke, fifth in the 200m IM, 12th in the 200m breaststroke, and 13th in 100m breaststroke. She also achieved another senior national qualifying time in the 200m IM, giving her a total of four overall.
