Lochiel program moves to Simonds The new site in Langley City allows for growth. HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts.langleyadvance.com

Members of the gallery clapped when the Langley School Board voted to close Lochiel school in rural South Langley. It’s a far different reception than the district has received in the past when it closed facilities. Last fall the board examined closure of Langley Secondary, and has closed underutilized elementaries such as County Line, Otter, Aldergrove, South Carvolth, Bradshaw and Murrayville. The reconfiguration of H.D. Stafford from a high school to a middle school was also controversial in the community. The specialized program at Lochiel, 224th Street and 15th Avenue, will be moved to Simonds Elementary, 20190 48th Ave. “I think overall most communities think this will be a win,” district principal Gord Stewart said. The board announced

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Langley School Board trustees such as David Tod and Rod Ross voted June 9 on recommendations to close the Lochiel site and move the U-Connect program. its plan to look into the closure April 7 which launched a 60-day consultation process, as set out by district policy. “Two factors that really triggered this,” he said. The board had decided not to convert Simonds into a middle school. The elementary has about 240 students but capacity for more than double that. The move of the program will put Simonds’ population at about 300 but not all U-Connect students are present at all times. “We’re not talking about amalgamating programs,” noted Rob McFarlane, the school board chair. “If nothing

happens at Simonds, it’s a vulnerable school. In my mind, it’s a great win to both.” The other factor was expansion of the Lochiel U-Connect program. UConnect is a blended school/home school program for children with anxiety and other issues who can’t handle traditional classroom environments. The program is kindergarten to Grade 10 but could expand to all grades. “Certainly if they wanted to do that, it was going to be very difficult to do that at its current site,” Stewart said. Trustee Shelly Coburn said the input of staff and parents was taken

into consideration but what about the students at U-Connect. “I’m wondering if they are happy about this or if they have any anxiety about going back into a mainstream school or if they’ve even been consulted,” she asked. Lochiel principal Sarban Sangha said the older students are excited about the new opportunities this affords, including volunteering, leadership, buddy opportunities and more. “Some of the younger ones are a little bit apprehensive,” he said. They like the small setting but the school will work to make their transition as smooth as pos-

sible and provide a sense of security. Stewart added that the U-Connect students can interact with the Simonds students as much as they feel comfortable or not at all. The Lochiel program started in 1997, the first B.C. school to blend face to face instruction with home schooling, site based and online learning. It attracts students from Langley as well as Surrey and beyond but its remote location made it inaccessible to some. Trustee Alison McVeigh noted her children went to Lochiel. “What’s going on out there is absolutely magical,” she commented. She said she’s determined to help the program be sustainable and help Simonds have a stronger future. Trustee Rod Ross said the schools win and the district sees a fiscal benefit, noting the “budget is only so big.” Former City councillor Rosemary Wallace, now a school trustee, noted there is another benefit. “I’m sure the City of Langley is going to be quite happy that this is happening and therees not going to be a school closing in the city,” she said.

Four-car crash snarls 16th A collision sent four people to hospital. Four people were injured and two were taken to hospital by Air Ambulance after a crash Wednesday morning on Langley’s 16th Avenue. The crash happened at about 9:30 a.m. and involved at least four vehicles, in the 22600 block of 16th. Langley RCMP said a light pickup was stopped to turn left into a driveway. Another car was stopped behind the pickup. A large com-

mercial vehicle apparently rear-ended the second car, causing a chain reaction that threw the pickup into the oncoming lane, where it hit a westbound SUV. Two adults were taken to hospital by Air Ambulance, with the first helicopter touching down in a nearby field at about 9:40 a.m. and the second just before 10 a.m. Two more adults were taken by ground ambulance. At least some of the victims had serious injuries. There were reports that a baby was in one of the vehicles, but apparently was not injured.

The RCMP closed 16th Avenue from 224th to 232nd for the morning. Langley residents along 16th Avenue have complained for years that their road is too dangerous. A thoroughfare that connects from Abbotsford through to Surrey, 16th Avenue

has several locations that are too narrow for the RCMP to park any cars on the sides of the road for speed traps. Aside from collisions, there have been several incidents in recent years of vehicles veering off roads and onto residential properties.

Karen de la O Frazer and her mother in-law, Shelagh Brennan, found out about the tuition increase when they arrived to sign de la O Fraser for summer courses.

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Langley student is one of thousands across B.C. caught up in a sudden cut to the funding for post-secondary English as a second language education. Karen de la O Frazer is a landed immigrant who moved to Canada seven years ago. She’s been working part time jobs, mostly for minimum wage, to help out with her household bills. Now she’s looking at getting a second part time job as she’s faced with a $2,600 tuition bill to continue upgrading her English language skills at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. “It’s pretty frustrating,” she said. She noted that at least she has support from her family, but worries about other students who won’t be able to take the classes at all. “I really appreciate that Canada opened its doors for me as a new immigrant,” said de la O Frazer, but said the funding cuts leave her feeling trapped. Getting a better job almost always requires the ability to study in English, she noted. Holding down a job or two while taking daily courses is difficult. She found out about the

A Kwantlen representative said the university is working to develop new options to allow KPU to continue providing ESL programs, and looking at alternative means of funding for them. De la O Frazer has a university degree from her native Mexico in psychology and education, but to continue further university studies in Canada, she needs to take more English language training. She is considering studying design, but her dream job would be helping other new immigrants to Canada. - With files from the Vancouver Sun.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Heat helps criminals gain entry Open windows can invite burglars, the RCMP warn. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

With warm summer weather already here, the Langley RCMP are warning residents to keep their homes secure even if windows are open. “Unfortunately, an

open window can be an invitiation for intruders,” said Cpl. Holly Largy, of the Langley Mounties. Police advise against leaving a window open overnight or when residents are not at home. If a window is opened, it should be pinned for security, perhaps drilling a hole through both frames and using a doubleheaded nail to secure the window. Keep the open pos-

ition small enough that someone couldn’t get in. Largy also warned about safety and screens, and noted that each year there are incidents in which kids, usually toddlers, are injured when they fall out of upper floor windows after pushing a screen out. When it comes to security, open windows have been an access point for local criminals as recently as last fall.

Greyszen Beszedes was charged with five counts of break and enter, along with counts of mischief, attempted theft, and assault with a weapon earlier this fall. The break ins took place between Oct. 2 and 21, and all involved a thief getting in through unsecured entrances. Beszedes is still wanted after he apparently fled the province following his first arrest.

university for a host of questionable items, including: • A $125 donation to Liberal MLA John Yap on July 27, 2011. • A $3,500 silent auction item at a Surrey First fundraiser on July 19, 2011, which won a meal with then mayor Watts. Schoberg is the financial agent for the Surrey First party. • A meal with at White Rock’s Onyx steak and seafood bar in July 2013, with $79 spent on one bottle of wine out of a $185.86 total bill. • A meal at the Five Doors Down restaurant in White Rock in August 2013 with $88 spent on two bottles of wine out of a $183 bill. • A $180 purchase of two bottles of scotch at a duty free airport store. Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson said the expenses are inappropriate and out-of-line with the university’s mission to fund classrooms and research. “This is obviously a surprise and my job is to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Wilkinson. The information only came to light after someone filed a Freedom of Information request with the university for the board expenses, and Kwantlen began compiling the information internally, said

Not hearing clearly when many people are talking?

Many people find that they are no longer able to understand everything, particularly when in the company of others. Engineered in Switzerland, System Audéo V has been designed specifically to understand in group situations.

The majority of those surveyed stated that when exposed to considerable background noise they are able to hear that something is being spoken, but can no longer discern precisely what is being said. The words seem blurred and indistinct. But why is that? The effect tends to manifest itself in company, or in the restaurant. It is the high-pitched tones perceived at the entrance to the cochlea that are decisive when it comes to hearing things accurately. In the majority of cases these parts of the inner ear are the first to be affected by noise or aging. As the high-pitched tones are no longer perceived well, the auditory center of the brain begins to struggle to decode language. It’s a bit like an image that doesn’t have enough pixels.

KPU

Gord Schoberg served as board chair from 2008 to 2014. Kwantlen needed to start reaching out more to the community,” said Schoberg. “This was an example of something that sounded good and felt like the right thing at time. Obviously, in reflection now after four years past and changing attitudes and so forth, I’m stepping out and saying hey don’t even think about it, I’ll repay it and try and put this behind us.” The Yap donation was made because his Richmond riding is one of Kwantlen’s catchment areas and the university was doing outreach with community members on its new designation as a polytechnic university, said Schoberg. A full list of Schoberg’s expenses was not provided by the minister or Kwantlen. Schoberg said he’s waiting to get a full list from the university but does not expect it

Wilkinson. Technically, the expenses were allowed under Kwantlen’s policies, which allowed political donations until January 2013, and allowed alcohol purchases without pre-authorization until 2014, said Wilkinson. Schoberg, who became board chair in 2008, said he had board approval to expense the items, especially the Surrey First donation. “I wasn’t unilaterally allowed to make that expenditure, it was something approved by the board,” he said in an interview. The board at the time included Amrik Virk, who became an MLA in the 2013 election and was appointed Minister of Advanced Education before being shuffled out of that job due to his ties to previous spending scandals at Kwantlen. “It was with the collective thought that

to exceed $10,000. The alcohol expenses were related to an annual professional development conference for the board, including the two bottles of scotch from the duty-free store, said Schoberg. “Rather than having alcohol around the table I’d invite the board colleagues to come back to my room for a drink,” he said. Wilkinson said he still has confidence in Kwantlen, because the university’s president and board members have changed in recent years. The university has been plagued by scandal in recent years, including a government probe that determined certain Kwantlen board members were aware of a questionable compensation package for a university vice-president in 2011 by using pre-employment deals and other perks and compensation to break government caps on pay. That probe caused Premier Christy Clark to shuffle Virk out of his advanced education portfolio, after emails surfaced showing Virk – who was on Kwantlen’s board at the time, before he became an MLA – was actively involved in the deal. – Rob Shaw is a Vancouver Sun reporter.

Hearing sensation! Swiss researchers: Audéo V is superior for conversation.

Without Audéo V

With Audéo V

The new Audéo V devices ensure considerably clearer reproduction of spoken language in company.

New hearing chip developed Swiss audiologists have developed a new hearing chip that is designed to restore speech comprehension, particularly with hearing loss in the high-frequency range. People can test the new Audéo V system by Phonak simply by calling now to do so. The test phase in particular is designed to clarify how speech comprehension can be improved in various situations and what role a new technology called “Autosense OS” plays. The chip recognizes where the person being

spoken to is located and amplifies only his or her voice, while ambient noise is lowered and the optimum hearing programs are seamlessly adjusted. Thanks to several synchronous microphones, the hearing system can detect sound in all directions and select the direction that speech is coming from within milliseconds. According to Swiss researchers, this significantly augments speech comprehension, especially in conversation.

t is entirely natural to eat as many fresh strawberries as possible – a reaction to the current plethora of delicious fresh strawberries, soon to be followed by blueberries, raspberries, blackberries… not to mention the wild offerings for those willing to brave the roads less travelled: salmon berries, thimble berries, huckleberries, and three more types of blackberries, including the invasive yet persuasively tasty Himalayan blackberries. Ordinary people are prone to feast on them all until their tummies are fit to burst. It comes down to where we came from: hunters and gatherers on the steppes of distant continents, foraging for tidbits left over from other, more powerful creatures than ourselves. When those prehistoric hominids – our ancient forebears (I could never figure out why they called them “forebears” when all of the scientific literature agrees that they were apes, and the religious types swear we just popped out of nothingness directly into the current perfection that we are purported to be, according to their literature) – found something good to eat, they ate it, pure and simple.

Odd Thoughts

n audit of Canadian senators’ expenses, released Tuesday, holds a number of interesting items. We now know that among other things, senators billed to the public the costs of travel to wedding anniversaries and for the hardship and expense of living in Ottawa while they treated their “primary residences” in other parts of the country like vacation cottages. Others seem to have billed taxi trips and business travel that had nothing to do with official duties. There is a sort of prurient interest in exactly where the money has been going. What odd expenses lay buried in the complete report? And on the other hand, nothing in there will surprise us. If this audit (or the next audit, investigation, or leak) turns up evidence that senators expensed the cost of having a troupe of dancing elephants at their summer jamboree, most Canadians will roll their eyes and shrug. Very few Canadians have any respect for the Senate. There are some who think it is either too difficult to abolish, given the constitutional hurdles, or who think it could be usefully reformed. But in its current form, it spends a significant amount of money without doing anything of significance. The Senate is supposed to be the chamber of sober second thought, its appointed lifers allegedly less worried about the rough and tumble election cycle than their compatriots in the House of Commons. In practice, it’s just as partisan, packed with party backers being rewarded for long service. In theory, the Senate can introduce its own legislation (as long as it doesn’t involve new spending or taxes) but very seldom do major new laws begin there. Whether abolition or reform is the route Canadians want to take, what the ongoing scandals make clear is that the Senate cannot continue the way it is. Every major party needs to make its position clear on how it will deal with the Senate. – M.C..

Letters to the editor

Bigger picture missing in debate over vaccination Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in response to a letter written about vaccinations. To qualify myself, I work with children with autism, autistic tendencies run in my family, and vaccinations have concerned me in the past as a possible trigger for autism to occur. I believe it is quite possible that vaccinations could be a trigger. I also believe pollution, processed foods, dyes, pesticides, and chemicals in general could be triggers. I am quite certain it runs in families too. When it came time to vaccinate my own children, I researched and researched. I spoke with parents who chose to vaccinate and others who chose not to. I wasn’t comforted in the least. However, this is what I found

missing from arguments on both sides... the bigger picture, if you will. When it came right down to it, I decided I would vaccinate, not because there wasn’t a risk because the risk was very real. I thought to myself, what if I was responsible for everyone on the planet? What if it was my job to decide what was best for everyone as a whole? Let’s face it, when we make the decision to vaccinate or not we are doing just that... making a choice for everyone. Would I want to be responsible for, I don’t even want to guess how many people, catching and spreading a disease and death or any one of the long term side effects associated with them, or would I want to be responsible for a child with autism?

What is disconcerting to me, is what I view as a lack of seeing outside ourselves and our immediate issues and environments. Where is empathy? Where is accountability? That being said, as knowledge becomes available to me I may change my view and I believe in educating ourselves and in turn, one another. I am grateful for the people that are doing solid research and sharing it regardless of whether or not I agree. My mind is open but for now, until a better argument comes along that sways me against vaccinations and includes the bigger picture or community as a whole, I cannot support the view not to vaccinate. Jennifer MacQueen, Aldergrove

Intolerance a danger Dear Editor, I would like to personally thank Matthew Claxton for his column on conspiracy theories. [“Reality – what a wacky concept!” June 3, 2015, Langley Advance.] He is quite correct when he writes that putting these wacky conspiracy theories into practice has tragic consequences. Which is why I would like to point out the inherent danger in a particular conspiracy theory, that being the claim that Europe is getting “Islamified” or being made into “Eurabia”. That the claim is conspiratorial can be seen when we consider that not one peer-reviewed demographic study of European populations verifies these claims. In fact, the peer reviewed demographic studies show that European Muslims do not have a birth rate higher than their non-Muslim counterparts, and are as secular

or as nominal in their religion as European Christians. For all this, conspiracy theorists like Pamela Geller or Mark Steyn, in classic conspiratorial form, still resort to ad hoc posturing to avoid the disconfirming evidence. And it is not just a paranoid claim made about Europe, but even about North America, with claims of “creeping sharia”. But what makes the claims particular odious is that when acted upon, these “Eurabia” or “creeping sharia” conspiracy theories can only be acted upon in the form of deportations, internments, or massacres. If claims of so-called “creeping sharia” are not forcibly denounced for the racist, conspiratorial nonsense they are, we can too easily be saying to ourselves “First they came for the Muslims, and I said nothing…” Gavin Campbell, Langley City

Freeway access is necessary

Dear Editor, I believe access to the freeway at the 208 Street overpass should be discussed by local and provincial authorities. Roundabouts at each approach to the overpass (simlar to the McCallum Road overpass in Abbotsford) would greatly ease the stress levels and commute times of residents. Other benefits would be less congestion on 88th Avenue and 200th Street during the morning and afternoon rush and better emergency response times to road mishaps. Bruce Jones, Langley

Wells Tony Gallagher, a well-known homeless man in Langley City, was stabbed to death in the downtown last week. Readers weigh in: On behalf of #LangleyMoms we would like to send out our sincerest condolences to his family. We are very saddened, shocked and baffled by these events. Many of us knew of or knew “Miles” as he sat outside of local companies. I, for one, would hand him change or purchase a coffee or some food for him. Others would reach out to him in other ways, but in all, we felt helpless and did what we could. He was quiet & kind. Someone who would not have hurt a soul. – Manda Hamel My heart and prayers go out to this man and his family. What devastating news.

CHARITY

Going the distance for dad A father and daughter has raised more than $30,000. RONDA PAYNE news@langleyadvance.com

Prostate cancer is a fear of many fathers, but the activities of a local father and daughter are driven by the desire to lessen that fear and make the disease a thing of the past. Walnut Grove resident Tim Kikkert joined the Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live, a fundraiser for prostate cancer research, in 2011. Both his father and uncle battled the men’s cancer and prompted Kikkert to get involved. “My dad had prostate cancer about 15 years ago,” Kikkert said. “Amy [Kikkert’s daughter] has always ridden behind me [in the Westcoast ride].” It’s an event the father-daughter duo are proud to be part

The Ride to Live broke all records on May 31 when $175,000 was raised for prostate cancer research. of and they’ve ranked in the top spot for fundraising each year they’ve been involved. This year, they raised an enviable $7,000. Along with the topspot in fundraising, the younger Kikkert took a new spot in the ride that was held on May 31. Amy has a shiny new ride and not one the average 19-

year-old girl who has graduated from John Casablancas Makeup Artistry program would normally choose. But that’s the rub. Amy didn’t take the makeup program to learn how to do glamour looks, she took it to learn special effects makeup; and now her choice of rides makes more sense.

(Right across from Willowbrook Mall)

As the relatively new owner of a bright orange 2009 Hyosung Aquila motorcycle, she’s moved up from riding behind her dad in the pair’s favourite fundraising event, to beside him. “I was always raised with my dad liking bikes,” she said. “I figured a bike would be affordable.” The approximately three-hour Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live culminated in a celebration at Fraser Downs where the Fraser Valley and Vancouver riders got together. “They had a band and a guest DJ,” said Kikkert. “They do a big barbecue and there’s a show and shine. It’s a great big kind of ceremony.” Together with Amy, Kikkert has raised more than $30,000 towards the fight against prostate cancer in their five years of participating. Amy used her makeup skills to help raise money by hosting an event at her dad’s place of work. “I did a beauty demo and a special effects demo to raise money,” she said. The pair’s efforts have been noticed by the organizers who asked Kikkert for help in putting together a guide for other riders to make their fundraising even more successful. “We’ve been really fortunate, I start [fundraising] probably in early March,” Kikkert said. They teamed up with the event executive.

“We wrote up a whole thing with sample emails and that kind of thing.” Other riders appreciated Kikkert’s work and told him so at the ride. “I received compliments from other riders on how useful it [the fundraising materials he helped create] was,” Kikkert said. “They said it helped raise a lot more money and more quickly.” The ride broke all records this year, raising

FAMILY FUN

Look up in Fort Langley Kids and dads can gather for kite-flying in Fort Langley. Dads and kids are encouraged to come and enjoy all kinds of colours and shapes this Father’s Day, as kites take to the sky above Fort Langley. Let’s Go Fly a Kite: Father’s Day Fun will be held at Fort Langley Community Park, 23055 St. Andrews Ave., on Sunday, June 21, with a morning session from 10 a.m. until noon and an afternoon session from 1 to 3 p.m. The event is presented by the Langley

Centennial Museum and the cost is $15.75 per child, plus dad. Preregistration is required. “This Father’s Day, children are invited to spend some quality time with dad, play outdoor games in the park, and create an amazing kite,” said Township of Langley arts and culture programmer Maggie Lukban. “This event is fun for all ages and will give families the opportunity to get outside and let their kites soar.” To register for Let’s Go Fly a Kite: Father’s Day Fun, visit RecExpress. ca, drop in to any Township of Langley community recreation facility, or call the Langley Centennial Museum at 604-533-3536.

$175,000 for prostate cancer research. The turn out for the show-and-shine was also a record breaker with about 150 vehicles on display. The Kikkerts’ success makes it sound easy, but there were challenges along the way. A back injury in the fall of 2014 had Kikkert wondering if he’d be able to enjoy the ride as he had in the past. “I was wondering, ‘What’s that going to be like for the ride in May?’,” he said.

Fortunately, it wasn’t a problem. Kikkert had been out with Amy training her on her bike and getting her ready for the ride which had several stops in a poker run format. When asked why the event was important to her, Amy replied, “Well, my grampa had prostate cancer, and it’s something to do with my dad, and I get to ride.” Find out more about Kikkert and the efforts to raise funds for prostate cancer research in B.C. at vancouver.ridetolive.ca.

Summer Maintenance of Rural Boulevards and Ditches The Township of Langley currently uses four full-time roadside grass mowers for ditch mowing. This equipment has predetermined routes, or an assigned area to follow. Pulling equipment away for a specific request lengthens the time it takes to fully complete all the rural boulevards and ditches. If you have a request for mowing or brush whacking, we ask for your patience as we try to fit the work schedule in as efficiently as possible.

Wartime history sheds light on B.C. Hundreds of small stories make up a history of B.C. during the Great War.

MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A

book by Fort Langley’s own Mark Forsythe is the winner of this year’s LieutenantGovernor’s Medal for Historic Writing. From the West Coast to the Western Front: British Columbians and the Great War by Forsythe and historian Greg Dickson took the top prize, presented in late May by the British Columbia Historical Federation. The book was one of Forsythe’s last projects as host of the CBC radio show B.C. Almanac, before his retirement from broadcasting. Forsythe reached out to his listeners for tales of their families lives during the First World War, and got a deluge of information. “These are stories that you’re not going to find anywhere else,” he said. Some stories were highly detailed, derived from letters or diaries saved and passed down, while others passed along stories told verbally. Some stories from the Great War were never or seldom told. “My grandfather who was in the First World War never ever uttered a word to me about the war,” said Forsythe. His co-author Dickson, on the other hand, had documentation in the form of

He was the son of Allan McLean, one of the Wild McLeans, a group of brothers hanged for murdering a constable in the 1800s. Forsythe, like most of those born after the wars, grew up learning about them in school, but this allowed him to put faces and names to the broad outlines of history. “Actually seeing people emerge, real people, from these profiles,” he said. Royalties from the book are going to the Canadian Letters and Images Project, an online project to collect as much information as possible about all of Canada’s wars and share it widely online. More than 15,000 letters, diaries, and photos have already been digitized since the project began in 2000.

Fort Langley author Mark Forsythe (above) and historian Greg Dickson found dozens of stories from B.C. residents about life during the First World War, both here and for locals who headed off to the front. letters home from his relatives who served overseas. The tales aren’t all about soldiers on the front lines. One of the ones that stood out for Forsythe was that of Grace MacPherson, a young Vancouver woman whose brother had gone to the war and been killed. At 19, MacPherson, one of a handful of women who could drive in B.C. at the time, tried to sign up with the Red Cross as an ambulance driver.

my dog died of cancer within two years,� MacLeod said. He covers event costs, such as hot dogs and treats, so 100 per cent of the funds go to the cause. Staff are invited to take part and most do come out to help. The crew is rounded out

by friends and family who volunteer at the event. “I’ve even got ex-staff members who come out to help,� he said. He has also enlisted support from others and has a silent auction. Car-Toons has a dog wash as well, and Harvey’s Pet Food and

Supplies will be on site with dog treats and samples. The fundraiser runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The car wash is located behind Super Save Gas on the Bypass. More information is at www.car-toons.ca or www.conquercancer.ca.

Cooking in Langley

Rubs easy Smoked paprika comes in both sweet and hot varieties and it is far superior to just regular paprika. I prefer the sweet (mild) variety because I would rather control the amount of spiciness with ground cayenne pepper instead.

CHEF DEZ

Rubs don’t have to be “rubbed” onto meat. A simply dredging or sprinkling will do just fine, but that being said, any rubbing will help the spices to penetrate the meat better in most cases. I never purchase pre-made spice mixes from the store. I always get greater satisfaction from making my own and having them stored in labeled Mason jars. I would like to share some of my favourite recipes with you because barbecue season is well under way. Take the time to start stocking miscellaneous individual dried spices and herbs like the ingredients mentioned in the recipes below, and start trying different combinations yourself.

• h e a t • g l a r e • f a d e

Beef Rub 4 tbsp sweet smoked paprika 2 tbsp granulated garlic (or garlic powder) 4 tsp salt 2 tsp ground black pepper 2 tsp dried thyme leaves 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper, optional Greek Rub 4 tsp dried oregano 4 tsp granulated onion (or onion powder) 4 tsp granulated garlic (or garlic powder) 4 tsp dried parsley 4 tsp dried rosemary 4 tsp white sugar 2 tsp cornstarch 2 tsp salt 2 tsp ground pepper Chilli Rub 2 tbsp sweet smoked paprika 1 tbsp granulated garlic (or powder) 1 tbsp Mexican chilli powder 2 tsp salt 1 tsp ground black pepper 1 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp ground cumin

LANGLEY RELAY

It takes an army to battle mom’s enemy Pam Hamilton, who continues to battle cancer, is bringing an army of supporters with her to this weekend’s Relay for Life at McLeod Athletic Park. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

P

am Hamilton has “love” tattooed on the underside of one of her wrists, “passion” on the other. She needed both to get through the most difficult time of her life. The 43-year-old married mom of three young children underwent a double mastectomy on March 5 in her battle against breast cancer. Through the whole ordeal, including the crushing diagnosis in February after she felt a couple of lumps over one of her breasts, the operation, and the chemotherapy treatments that she continues to endure, Pam has leaned on her family including husband Brad (a Langley City paid on-call firefighter) and kids Isaac, 12, Seth, 10, and eightyear-old Sierra for support. But they aren’t the only ones. Pam’s voice shakes with emotion when she talks about all those who have rallied around her. “The fire hall gave $1,000 and the first guy at [Brad’s] work just handed him $200, and Southgate Church has just been my rock,” she said. his weekend, Pam is bringing a small army of supporters with her to McLeod Athletic Park for Langley’s Relay for Life benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society. The annual fundraiser gets underway at 6 p.m. Friday, June 12 and continues overnight to 6 a.m.

T

Pam Hamilton played backgammon with her husband Brad as she was in the hospital for her second round of chemotherapy. Her husband is just one part of her support system as she battles breast cancer. Saturday, June 13. As of Tuesday, Langley’s Relay for Life was $107, 645.65 towards its goal of raising $240,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. To donate online, to register, or to learn more about the fundraiser, visit www.cancer.ca/relay and search for Langley’s Relay for Life event. Reflecting back on when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Pam didn’t think the lumps were a big deal, initially. But when the surgeon told Pam the lumps were cancerous, she was in shock.

Our rewards

“I just went blank,” she recalled. The next question was “what do you want to do?” Pam didn’t hesitate: “I’m just gonna cut them off.” From the diagnosis onward, Brad remained positive. He steered clear of researching it on the internet, believing that too much information wasn’t a good thing. “Let’s look at the positive side of this all the time – that’s kind of where I went,” he said. “I didn’t Google anything; I didn’t need to know a bunch of information because your

More rewarding.

If she takes hormone pills for five years, that number drops to 26 per cent and if she endures chemotherapy, which she is currently doing, it goes down to 11 per cent. Pam and Brad sport matching buzz cuts, hers the residual effect of chemotherapy, and she’s more than willing to do it for her children. “I want to live for my kids,” Pam said. Pam said her strong, unwavering faith has been her ally. “God is No. 1,” she said. “God has helped me through this. People say ‘Why me?’ I say, ‘Why not me?’ If there is any time in my life that I’d have cancer, now is the time because I feel super close to God, I have a great support system, so I had some major prayer and support.” his weekend, Pam has even more motivation after her mom, Helen Friesen, was diagnosed with leukemia a couple of weeks ago. Pam’s thoughts are with her mom. And she admits that she’s “broken” by what Helen is going through. “I don’t want to see her suffer, so I’ve handled it two different ways,” Pam said. This is Pam’s first experience at Relay for Life and she said she has a “burning desire” to support people living with cancer. “It’s perfect timing because I’m so raw and emotional,” she said. “Right now, I’m just fired up.”

With less than a week to go, furious activity is underway to get ready for the 2015 Langley Relay for Life. “This is the crazy, crazy time,” said Jenn Schroeder, who is heading up organizing for the Canadian Cancer Society. The annual event takes place in McLeod Athletic Park on Friday, June 12. More than 50 teams of relayers will hit the track starting at 6 p.m. and keep walking (possibly with a few breaks) until 6 a.m. June 13. Some of them will be dressed in capes and spandex, in keeping with this year’s superheroes theme. The annual non-competitive event has raised millions of dollars for the Canadian Cancer Society over the years. Almost $100,000 has been collected this year, and the total will likely go higher with last minute-donations and post-relay fundraising efforts. The first lap, as at every Relay for Life, is by cancer survivors, some of them still in treatment, all wearing bright yellow T-shirts. Once the survivors have finished their lap, the teams will begin. Those team members not walking or running will be taking in a wide variety of activities. Part of the kick off to

events will include survivor speakers, who this year come from the Abreast in a Boat dragonboat team, a team composed of cancer survivors. Entertainment and games take place throughout the night, including music from singers like Tiffany Desrosiers and band The Heist and the Road Dogs, and a showing of Pixar’s The Incredibles on a temporary screen to one side of the track. The entertainment lineup is all new this year.

the stands are illuminated from within by candles. At 10 p.m., the field lights will go dark and there is a silent remembrance for those have died of cancer. This year the White Spot Pipe Band is sending some members for the luminary ceremony. While the event is primarily for the teams relaying, it is open to everyone. “It’s a community event,” said Schroeder. People are welcome to come by and donate,

Several people are seen in yellow T-shirts. These are worn by cancer survivors. There will be some returning items and events, including the return of the food trucks to help serve up dinner to relayers. One event that takes place every year is the luminary ceremony, when the white paper bags lining the track and in

Darren Ng will head off to his first Relay for Life this Friday and immediately leap into the spotlight. Ng, a science teacher at Brookswood Secondary, will be taking on duties as the master of ceremonies, shepherding on the many speakers who will help kick off the 12-hour cancer fundraiser. “It’s much more than just hosting something,” said Ng. “My sister is a [cancer] survivor, my mother in law is fighting it.” A cousin’s wife also just underwent surgery. “It’s not just hosting, it’s personal too,” said Ng. Relay for Life organizers invited Ng to pick up the mic after seeing him host the annual Brookswood Secondary cancer fundraiser. Brookswood Secondary, and several of its feeder elementary schools, have

HELPING HANDS

Crews needed There are still a few volunteer spots open to help out with the Relay. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Darren Ng was one of several staff and students at Brookswood Secondary who had their heads shaved at the annual cancer fundraiser. Now he’s headed to Relay for Life.

That moment when a life can be saved

The Langley Relay for Life could still use a few volunteers. The event itself is ready to go, and teams have already raised about $100,000 this year, said organizer Jenn Schroeder with the Canadian Cancer Society. But a few more helping hands would be welcome for the set up and tear down efforts. Setup for the event takes place this Friday, June 12, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and tear down takes place Saturday morning from 6 to 11 a.m. Anyone interested in helping out can email langleyrelay@bc.cancer.ca.

assembly this year with a freshly shaved head. When it comes to the new duties as emcee, Ng will have had plenty of practice. For years he did public speaking as part of his duties on cruise ships for Royal Caribbean, and in 1999 he rode a bike across Canada speaking at schools on Canadian history, part of a government project. He’s also been with the Toastmasters, and helped promote road safety with ICBC. All of that came before he became a teacher and found himself doing a bit of public speaking every day in front of his classes of Grade 9 and 10 science students. He’s prepping for this Friday, but much of the groundwork has been done for him by the organizers, for which he’s thankful. Despite his background, Ng said he didn’t immediately leap to say yes when offered the job. “I personally felt quite hesitant, not because I didn’t want to do it, but because it’s such a huge event with such a long history in the community,” Ng said.

CHARITY

Car wash owner hosts cancer cause fundraiser This will be the fifth year for the charity car wash. Washing four wheels will help those using two wheels at a Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraiser

Sunday. The Car-Toons Car Wash at 19415 Langley Bypass is holding its annual car wash benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation. Owner Donnie MacLeod has been holding the fundraiser for the past four years. “We raised $3,000 in

eight hours last year,� he said. In the past he’s also got on his bike and rode in the Ride to Conquer Cancer but he won’t be available this year. Like most people, his life has been touched by the disease. “My wife, my dad and

my dog died of cancer within two years,� MacLeod said. He covers event costs, such as hot dogs and treats, so 100 per cent of the funds go to the cause. Staff are invited to take part and most do come out to help. The crew is rounded out

by friends and family who volunteer at the event. “I’ve even got ex-staff members who come out to help,� he said. He has also enlisted support from others and has a silent auction. Car-Toons has a dog wash as well, and Harvey’s Pet Food and

Supplies will be on site with dog treats and samples. The fundraiser runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The car wash is located behind Super Save Gas on the Bypass. More information is at www.car-toons.ca or www.conquercancer.ca.

Gardening in Langley

Goji is not suited to Wet Coast

ANNE MARRISON

Dear Anne,

I have four Goji plants that I started from seed in 2014 (West Coast Seeds). I transplanted them to soil in the spring. They grow quite well for a while then one or two little branches turn brown and shrivel up. They are watered along with everything else in the garden with an oscillating sprinkler. They have had lots of lime, but nothing actually measured. Any ideas to keep them healthy?

Jim Ormesher, Tsawassen Dear Jim,

Goji berries hate wet, soggy soil. They also need to be grown in a sunny spot, though in Tsawassen, this isn’t likely to be your problem. In this climate they don’t have any pest or disease problems (as far as is known at present). But the dislike of wet soil could be an issue. They are grown commercially in Tibet, Mongolia and parts of China for the health-giving berries. But apparently they are also planted on the edges of deserts to prevent the desert creeping further in. Peat moss, compost and manure aren’t recommended for use with them because these amendments hold onto moisture. When Goji berry plants are first put into the soil, they do need water to get settled-in. But the soil should be very welldrained so that water moves through. Once they put their taproot down, they’re said to be very drought-resistant. I suspect the oscillating sprinkler and the grass clippings are causing root rot problems in your Goji plants. Grass clippings hold onto water and

your clippings will be especially moist since water is being added via the sprinkler. I wonder how long you water for and for how many days in the week. It could be that grass clippings aren’t needed at all. The lime is a very good idea. The alkalinity Goji plants need is very high, up to 8.6Ph. It might be helpful to find out just how alkaline your soil is now. Garden centres sell soil tests. Dear Anne,

I have a question about the ‘new’ Tulameen raspberry

canes my brother bought. He lives in Kamloops. He’s wondering if he plants the Tulameen canes next to his other raspberry bushes if they will cross-pollinate. Should he plant the new canes separately further from his other canes? Dear Judy,

Judy, e-mail

Cross-pollination isn’t likely if ‘Tulameen’ is planted close to other raspberries. Mainly raspberries are self-fertile

although they produce more raspberries if insects pollinate them as well. In any case, cross pollination wouldn’t affect the first generation of raspberries because fruit characteristics stem from the parent cane that produced the raspberry. So regardless what the insects did, every raspberry from the Tulameen canes would be a Tulameen in looks and taste. Other kinds planted nearby would also be true to their own variety. But it still might

be best to plant Tullameen separately. Tulameen is an early fall fruiter which should be completely cut down to the ground in late winter. June-fruiting raspberries usually have old canes cut in fall and new canes retained. This is unlikely to be a problem at first. But since raspberry canes sucker far and wide, different kinds planted close together can get thoroughly mixed up which could make pruning and care more complicated.

A Fort Langley Lions Club donation is a big boost to a student greenhouse. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

The foundation for a future eco-friendly greenhouse in Fort Langley has been planted, thanks to a generous donation by the Village’s Lions Club. On Friday morning, June 5, Fort Langley Lions Club members presented a cheque to the Langley Fine Arts School’s Green Team for their greenhouse. In total, the club is donating $3,500 to the project. The cheque presentation was at the future site of the greenhouse – the community garden plots at the north end of Fort Langley Community Park. The purpose of the 12-by-8 sq. foot cedar greenhouse is to support year-long sustain-

Construction is expected to start in late July. Each year, roughly 330 Langley Fine Arts students are involved in the school’s garden program. In the community, garden-

ers range in age from eight to 90 and have been using the 42 garden boxes as a source of recreation and education. The garden also promotes eco-friendly waste disposal, as well as the education of elementary school students regarding healthy lifestyles and healthy eating.

Foraging group teaching about finding foods and 22, Aug. 9, and Sept. 4 and 23. Each wild food foraging tour culminates in a catered gourmet dinner using foraged food (but no foraging takes place in the

parks). “This season we will be holding the tours at Campbell Valley Park because in the past, the old growth trees were logged,” explained Evjenth. “This ‘second-growth’ forest area offers a different variety of plants than untouched ‘firstgrowth’ forests (such as Lighthouse Park). Suitable harvesting sites will be suggested to participants on the tours based on our experience harvesting in the wild.” Crown land is fair game for harvesting without a permit, but parks are protected areas and should not be used for harvesting. As well, people should learn about sustainable harvesting in a given area. The foundation eduates about how to harvest without destroying the ecosystem. Each tour takes about three hours and participants learn about each natural habitat’s edible and medicinal plants, as well as become educated about sustainable harvesting and historical facts. “The lunches we provide include seasonal foraged foods from Musqueam First Nation catering business Salishan Catering, so everyone will get to sample some of the foods we found on the tours. The lunches include smoked salmon,” he said. “Other than that, we will only be instructing participants on harvesting vegetarian plant foods.” The Langley tour costs $50 per person and bookings can be made through foragerfoundation.org. “We have seven dates for the Campbell Valley Park tours and each can hold up to 30 participants if fully booked,” Evjenth said. The other tours take place in Stanley Park, Lighthouse Park, Sunnyside Acres, Lynn Canyon, Alice Lake Park, Pacific Spirit Park and Lost Lake Trail. The dress code for the tours should be comfortable hiking shoes, rain proof clothing on wet days, and common sense dressing for any kind of weather. Everyone should bring a camera, and a notebook if they would like to take additional notes.

“Do you think llamas take showers?” De Jong asked Mrs. Arora’s Grade 1 and 2 class. The shrieks of “no” and laughter that followed were part of the interaction De Jong was looking for. “He’s done shows and stuff since he was six months old,” De Jong said of Exodus. In fact he has won more shows than any other male llama in Canada and has been shown across Western Canada. A member of the Langley Horse and Farm Federation, and a member of 4-H since he was nine, Mark is no stranger to showing animals and sharing information. “It’s about getting them more engaged,” Mark said of the students at Willoughby. “I always try to ask a lot of questions. A lot of times you can get half of the answers from the kids.” De Jong noted that it’s important to connect kids to the rural features around them, to reconnect them to their roots and perhaps help them gain an interest they may not have otherwise had.

Langley’s Western Lacrosse Association team dropped its second straight game after falling 9-7 to the host Maple Ridge Burrards in front of a sparse number of senior A boxla fans. “We battled hard for two-anda-half periods, but we just didn’t finish strongly and this is something that this group has to learn to do,” Thunder assistant coach Darcy Rhodes said. “We played two really good road periods and half of the third, but we just couldn’t get over that hump.” The Thunder hosted the Victoria Shamrocks last night (Wednesday, June 10) at the Langley Events Centre, but the game was played after the Langley Advance went to press.

into last night’s contest. On Tuesday, the Thunder had momentum at one point, jumping ahead 5-3 at the 12:24 mark of the second period on Jacob Ruest’s even strength goal. Just a minute and four seconds after Ruest scored, the Burrards’ Ben McIntosh narrowed the margin to 5-4 as the Thunder took a one-goal lead into the second intermission. The third period belonged to the Burrards, who out-scored the Thunder 5-2 to seal the victory. Just past the midway point of the final frame, the Burrards reeled off three unanswered goals in 1:38 to take a 7-5 lead. After Langley’s Patrick Saunders scored his third of the night to make it 7-6, the Burrards gave themselves some breathing room again with back-to-back goals from Coady Adamson 57 seconds apart from each other to complete his hat trick. Thunder veteran Lewis Ratcliff closed out the night’s scoring with 1:38 to go in the game. FINAL BUZZER: High-level help is on the way in the form of a handful of veterans from the National Lacrosse League champion Edmonton Rush: Brett Mydske John Lintz, Nik Bilic and Tyler Melnyk will be playing their summer lacrosse in Langley.

Langley Thunder’s Alex Turner and Maple Ridge Burrards’ Travis Irving jockeyed for position in their pursuit of a bouncing ball during Tuesday’s Western Lacrosse Association game at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge. The Burrards edged the Thunder 9-7.

The Rage had only played one game earlier in the day to reach the finals whereas this was the third game for the Xtreme under the hot sun. Xtreme coaches Rob French and Bill Cox asked the girls to dig deep and show what they could do to beat their crossriver rivals for the second time in the finals of a tournament. The Xtreme jumped out to a 6-2 lead after six innings, but the long day started to get to the Langley players. The Rage battled back in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game at 7-7. Playing with international tie-breaking rules and a runner on second base, coach French decided to play “small ball.” Hagen led off and bunted a runner to third. After five consecutive bunts and errors by the Rage defence, the Xtreme built a 12-7 lead. The Rage couldn’t answer in the bottom of the inning and the Xtreme went on to win 127 and secure their third gold medal of the 2015 tournament season.
