COUNTDOWN TO CRUISE-IN

Police continue the search for a sexual assault suspect. HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The Surrey RCMP have released bank surveillance photos from Langley of a man considered a suspect in the sexual assault of a 70-year-old woman in her Cloverdale home on Aug. 12. Shortly after noon that Wednesday, a woman returned to her home after being out for the morning. Shortly after she arrived home, a male entered the home in the 16700 block of 28th Avenue and presented a weapon. He confined the woman by restraining her. The male demanded cash and other items, however, the woman was not able to meet his demands, RCMP said. “The male proceeded to both physically and sexually assault the woman causing significant injuries. The male eventually departed with only a few items,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr. She was able to free herself from the restraints shortly before 2 p.m. and took refuge at a neighbour’s home where she called the police. “The woman is in hospital being treated for her non life-threatening injuries,” he said. Security cameras at the Brookswood RBC, located at 20059 40th Ave. show the suspect using the ATM at approximately 1:57 p.m. on Aug. 12. “The Surrey RCMP has released these photographs of the suspect to seek the

A man photographed in the Brookswood RBC is wanted by police as a suspect in a sexual assault on a 70-year-old woman. public’s assistance in furthering the police investigation into these serious crimes,” says Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “We’re hopeful someone will recognize this man and notify police.” Schumann added the man wasn’t using his own bank resources, otherwise identification would have been straight forward. The pictures show the suspect who is believed to be a Caucasian male, 20 to 30 years old, 5’10” to 6’0” tall, medium build, clean shaven, no visible marks, scars or tattoos. The suspect at the time of the offence had shoulder length, light coloured hair that may not be real. He spoke without any distinguishable accent. The Surrey RCMP Serious Crime unit and Lower Mainland District Forensic Identification Team are working together on this

case and released the information so the public could be wary. “The smallest bit of information may assist this investigation in swiftly capturing this male,” Carr noted. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, their nearest police force or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www. solvecrime.ca. “We have had several tips and the detectives are following up,” Schumann said. The 70-year-old woman has reached out to the community. “The people in the neighbourhood were awesome, as were all of the police officers and firemen and paramedics and hospital staff and doctors and nurses at Surrey Memorial Hospital. I feel stronger every day because of them and my husband and family,” the 70-year-old told Black Press’ Peace Arch News by email Sunday.

COURTS

Sex abuse nets coach six years An ex-instructor was sentenced Tuesday. JENNIFER SALTMAN Special to the Langley Advance

A former Langley Gymnastics Foundation instructor who sexually abused nine boys from the gym where he worked has been given a sixyear prison sentence. John William Henry, 33, pleaded guilty to nine counts of sexual assault and one count of possessing child pornography. He was sentenced on Aug. 18 in provincial court in Surrey. The incidents took place over a 10-month period and involved boys between the ages of eight and 12 years old. Henry was an instructor at the Langley Gymnastics Foundation at the time. Henry routinely touched the boys’ genitals and buttocks through their clothing as they stretched and moved between stations at the gym. He talked about genitalia and kissed some boys. He exposed himself to some boys in the locker-room and asked two of them to touch his penis. He put one boy’s penis in

his mouth. At a summer gymnastics camp, Henry looked at and touched boys while they slept and changed into swim shorts in front of them. Henry told the boys not to tell their parents because he could go to jail or lose his job. He asked some of the boys if he should stop, and although they said yes, he kept touching them.

Submitted

John William Henry has been sentenced to six years for sexual abuse of nine boys. The assaults came to light in March 2014 after an eight-year-old boy disclosed to his parents what had happened. They went to police and Henry was arrested. He made voluntary statements to police, admitting that he had touched the boy and others about whom police knew nothing. Henry also told police about child

pornography that he had on a micro SD card hidden between the mattress and frame of his bed at the Abbotsford home he shared with his parents. Henry was immediately suspended from Langley Gymnastics and Gymnastics B.C., and Langley Gymnastics Foundation reviewed and reinforced its policies and procedures around child safety. Henry has been in custody since his arrest in March 2014, having not sought bail. Judge Jennifer Oulton said seven people submitted victim-impact statements that were thoughtful, sorrowful and angry, and outlined how Henry betrayed their trust and stole and exploited the innocence of the boys he abused. The short-term effects of Henry’s actions include increased anxiety, caution and mistrust for each victim and his family. The long-term effects are still not known. “That is a burden that the boys and their families will carry into the future,” Oulton said. Oulton said Henry has not tried to deny

or minimize his crimes and has expressed genuine remorse. He is willing to participate in programming. “He does acknowledge he has caused incalculable harm to these boys,” Oulton said. Henry told the writer of a psychological report that he is not a pedophile, but homosexual pedophiliac predilections are present. Oulton said that based on the frequency and nature of the crimes, number of victims, compulsion and motive, Henry should receive sex offender treatment as if he is a pedophile. Henry is considered a high-moderate risk for sexual recidivism. Crown and defence jointly sought a sixyear sentence, and Oulton said that considering all of the sentencing principles and materials presented, it is a fit sentence. Henry was given credit for nearly 26 months of time in custody, leaving just under four years in his sentence. When he is released from prison, he will be subject to a number of conditions limiting his contact with people under the age of 16. – Jennifer Saltman is a Vancouver Province reporter.

A motorcyclist was killed and his 10-year-old son injured in a crash in Glen Valley in northeast Langley Aug. 12. A 41-year-old man from Abbotsford was riding east on 88th Avenue when he struck a truck that was pulling out of a driveway in the 26700 block. The truck, driven by a Pitt Meadows man, was attempting to head westbound on 88th, said Sgt. Alexandra Mulvihill. The motorcycle hit the rear of the truck. The rider was declared dead at the scene, said Mulvihill. His son was in stable condition and expected to live. Langley RCMP Traffic Services are investigating the incident, and believe a combination of speed and driver judgement may have been factors. Alcohol does not seem to have been involved, and officers wewre also looking at sightlines for both drivers around a small bridge at the location of the crash. Mulvihill reminded drivers that more motorcycles are on the road this time of the year, and other drivers should be alert for their presence.

hen Bruce Springsteen penned 57 Channels and Nothin’ On in 1992, he captured an irony that has since grown into farce. I’m embarrassed to admit that my cable TV puts at my disposal several hundred channels… and there’s still nothin’ on most of the time. Many of the channels are high-definition duplicates of standard deliveries, for those who are blessed with an acuteness of vision that allows them to tell the difference. Unfortunately, while the high definition channels deliver more pixels per inch, it’s just more pixels of nothin’ much. Sure, there are a few interesting or truly entertaining shows that appear from time to time – but when they do show up, they are milked for every penny (in Canada, that has become every nickel) the producers can squeeze out of them, as they fade into monotony and less creative – but equally enterprising – producers churn them into a new flavour of mind soup that permeates the Great Nothin’ until a rare something finally comes along again and shifts the paradigm towards yet a new mediocrity. The channel indicator runs from one to one shy of ten thousand, leaving room for thousands more channels to meet the spatial needs of the Great Nothin’. It seems, indeed, that the availability

Odd Thoughts

uying a home is one of the most important decisions anyone will ever make. There are first homes, family homes, and downsizing homes for empty nesters, but no matter how many times you move, do it with caution. Especially now. Vancouverites love to complain about the fact that a 1,200 square foot house there will cost you upwards of $1 million. While prices are not so dire at this end of Metro Vancouver, that doesn’t mean houses are cheap, either. In fact, housing prices have increased sharply over the last decade, and even the severe recession of 2008 was a mere speedbump. In most of the Lower Mainland, the price of a house has more than doubled in the last decade, while wages decidedly have not done the same. Meanwhile, major financial institutions are warning that the Canadian housing market may be wildly overvalued. We’ve seen this before – in the early 1980s, a sharp spike in house prices crashed abruptly. It’s possible that this time is different, of course. It’s possible that house prices will just keep going up forever, or at least level out instead of dropping. But it’s also possible that things could go the other way. Whatever happens, we just hope that people buying are being cautious. It’s possible to make an informed decision and to buy a home even amid an overheated market. Just make sure you don’t assume that prices will always increase, or that interest rates will stay low forever. For young buyers who have been burdened by more student loans and a tougher economy than their parents, it might seem frustrating to wait for another six months or a year to save more – but it might also be very prudent. If you have the means and you’ve found a home you like, then this is the time to buy. But we advise caution. The only thing we can be absolutely certain about when it comes to the housing market is that nothing stays the same forever. – M.C.

Letters to the editor

Bill 22 bad for B.C. education Dear Editor, The court ruling against teachers was a dark day for unionism, our children, and our future as a society; we can’t be supported by an uneducated, unemployable next generation. The Liberals’ Bill 22 is the culprit of today’s legal battles. It set a precedent. Previously negotiated language was struck out by the stroke of a pen. A generation of children have graduated from a system that has been and continues to be underfunded, held together by dedicated, all too often stressed out professionals. Class size and composition is what protects teaching and learning conditions. Anyone who says otherwise is misinformed.

Can we put one nurse in charge of 20 patients and expect good care? There must be class limits in order to teach all children well. It is a disservice to a special needs child when a teacher is unable to carry out an individual education plan. Those vulnerable children require specialized programs in order to succeed. It is an irrational requirement that a teacher come up with seven different programs. If we want excellence, teachers must be able to carry out those IEPs. If we don’t limit the number of special needs students in a class, there isn’t enough physical space for all their educational assistants.

Now, children do not get the hours of support they are entitled, as one educational assistant is often shared. Many parents of special needs children have had enough and as a group, they are also getting ready to legally fight the Liberals in the courts for proper education of their children. It is undemocratic for governments to renege on collective agreements. It’s vital for teachers to fight this at the Supreme Court of Canada. I believe there is whole hearted support from all parents and for that matter teachers and workers across Canada. Niovi Patsicakis, retired Special Ed teacher, Surrey

City drug problem getting worse Dear Editor, Wow, I guess my letter must have struck raw nerve with some narrow-minded folks who are hugely in denial over the fact downtown Langley has a negative reputation of crime and drugs. There are needles on the

grounds at Douglas and Portage Parks where families take their children to play. Does that make you feel any safer? I even discovered a filthy syringe in the washroom at Langley City Library and there are users shooting up at Innes Corner

Plaza in broad daylight; not to mention assaults that happen at the bus loop on Logan Avenue and Glover Road. What has your mayor and City council even done to address this issue that gets worse year after year? Mike Brian, Surrey

216th cloverleaf welcomed Good fruit wasted Dear Editor, I agree that a proper cloverleaf is needed at 216th Street. I believe that when the Hwy 1 was opened in 1964, land was made available for such an expansion at 216th sometime in the future. If the mayor’s innovative thinking is realized, the 208th Street overpass is widened and a deal struck with the province for access to the freeway, it will prove a greater benefit to all residents, not just the ones having trouble crossing over the freeway.

There are three ways over Highway 1 (200th Street, 208th Street and Glover Road); whereas all seeking access to Highway 1 (from the populated corridors of Walnut Grove and Willoughby) have only 200th Street. Editors’s Note: The federal government recently announced that a new $59 million highway interchange and widening project at 216th Street in Langley will begin in two years [New link to highway coming within four years, Aug. 6, Langley Advance].

Surveillance photos from a Brookswood bank have been released showing a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 70-year-old woman in Cloverdale. Readers weigh in: Liana Marie: Can the bank sync up the time on the tape to the time of transaction on the machine... just a thought! Hope this very sick monster is caught SOON!!! He’d already be dead if it was my grandmother he did this to! Tina Scarpino Ferguson: Disgusting Kim Rozecki Hale: Monstrous Kevin Munroe: Am I missing something? Who said this is the suspect? The pictures do not fit the discription. I agree he looks over 30. The picture walking down the street looks like gray hair. The picture at the bank looks like a cap with wool braids and his gray sticking out. The sunglasses looks like a fake nose attached. If the times are right he only had a two hour window from when he arrived at the house to Brookswood. Preet Gill: This horrible dude is clearly above the age of 30! RCMP needs to do better job of identifying the suspect!

The new EP will be released Friday, along with the premiere of a video on Exclaim.ca for the EP’s feature track Canvas. Formed in 2009, the band is composed of five Langley high school students who merged their musical efforts. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Adam Mah is the group’s frontman, Glen Jackson is lead guitarist, Shane Stephenson is on keyboard, Deven Azevedo plays bass guitar, and Dan Kozlowski is on drums. Their Western Canada tour kicks off in Kelowna on Aug. 29, and includes gigs in Red Deer, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Calgary, Banff, and finally Vancouver on Sept. 25. > More: www.langleyadvance.com

More water worries clematis and yarrow prefer alkaline soil and wouldn’t appreciate vinegar water much. But right now a weak solution of vinegar water for them would be better than the alternative of not having water at all.

Gardening in Langley

LangleyAdvance

Dear Anne,

ANNE MARRISON

Dear Anne,

I usually clean my fruit and vegetables in water to which I add a few drops (sometimes a dash) of white vinegar. The water is Metro Vancouver tap water. I wonder if such water could be used to water the plants in my backyard or in planters.

Jean Munier, Burnaby Dear Jean,

Water containing a drop or dash of white vinegar shouldn’t be a problem. But it is best if the ratio of vinegar to water is overwhelmingly in favour of water. I’d suggest about a quart of water to dilute your drop or dash of vinegar. Acid-loving plants would enjoy the hint of vinegar much more than those that need alkalinity. If you have rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas or blueberries, I suggest you focus on those because all are shallow-rooted, acid-loving and among the first to suffer from drought. Other plants that like acidic soil include primroses, calla lilies, ferns, alyssum and lupins. Heathers can also handle acidity, but don’t need priority because they’re very well-adapted to drought. Dianthus, heuchera, hellebores, cranesbills,

Anne Marrison is happy to answer gardening questions. Send them to amarrison@shaw.ca

Jean Konda-Witte, Abbotsford Dear Jean,

It’s the lack of rain and hot sun that’s ruined your raspberries. Twenty years is about the age when blight and viral infections happen – but the key to your problems is when you report

This year I lost my entire raspberry crop. In June, the leaves were turning brown and shriveling up. The berries dried up before they ripened. I watered the bushes about once a week. In spring I put on year-old compost from my bin. Did I over-fertilize, or was this some sort of blight? The raspberries are about 20 years old. I have dug up most of the roots: just left about 10 new shoots. Should I buy new plants and put them in the same place? Could there be something wrong with the soil? Or is it just from the heat?

that the leaves turned brown as well. It might be a good idea to buy some new plants – but frankly if next year’s weather is like this, you could have the same problem again. It might be best to wait and see how your new shoots do. If they do poorly, then you could buy new roots and plant these in another site. If your present raspberry site is in full sun, try a more shaded spot for the new plantings. Next year, you could try Sea Soil as an amendment or mulch (or both). Home compost is excellent, but Sea Soil has an additional advantage in drought – it holds onto water very well. Grass clippings are a nutritious and water-saving mulch which is all the more valuable for being absolutely free. With raspberries, you can pile grass mulch thickly. Make sure the mulch layer is thinner right against the canes. The reason for this is because thick, fresh grass layers get hot enough to burn delicate plant tissues (and unprotected human skin).

COMMUNITY

Mustangs corralled Public admission to the annual Mustang Round-Up is free.

“Most car clubs have a community charity, as we realize we’re all very fortunate,” she added. The gates open for registration at 8:30 a.m. (although there is advance registration at www. gvma.org). The cost is $20 per vehicle. The public can start checking out the horsepower at 10 a.m. and the day continues with vendors, viewing, White Spot and other local merchants and more until the awards at 3 p.m. “We generally have 150 to 250 cars plus respective drivers and often family. With volunteers, vendors and spectators, we expect 500 to 1,000 people,” Hundak said. Organizers ask the people don’t bring bicycles or skateboards. This is the second year for the event at the George Preston, 20699 42nd Ave. Several members will be bringing their Mustangs for all to see. “Like many people, I wasn’t completely sold on the 2015 Mustang when it was first unveiled, but since then several have really caught my eye,” she said. How far afield so people travel for this show – from Alaska to Seattle area, Vancouver Island and east to Calgary.

HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Anyone wanting to show off their Ford-powered vehicle or wanting to see an array of distinctive vehicles can head to the 32nd annual Mustang Round-Up on Sunday. The Aug. 23 show at the George Preston Recreation Centre will, as it has since the start of the Greater Vancouver Mustang Association, contribute proceeds to Basics for Babies which helps throughout the Lower Mainland. “Our club voted to choose Basics for Babies not long after it was created, at least 15 years ago,” said Heidi Hunchak, with the GVMA. “It’s a local charity and we are a local club. It allows us to help those that aren’t able to help themselves. So often a baby’s needs are forgotten when donations are made to food banks and shelters, we feel that our donations truly do make a difference.” The club has supported Basics for Babies for many years.

PET OF THE WEEK Sponsored by:

DONATE, ADOPT, VOLUNTEER Marigold is a sweet, young, domestic short haired cat. She came to us at about 6 weeks old and covered in ringworm! The poor girl was on the shyer side, and having to endure a strict bath/medication regime did not help her come out of her shell at all. As soon as she was officially ringworm clear, we tried to get her back on track with her much needed socialization. She is now a bright, adorably, affectionate girl and just cant wait to find her own furever family. She could live in a home with the right cat or dog. Small kids are a no go for her, because she is still scared of noises. She is looking for a home without a whole lot of hustle and bustle. This little trooper has already been through the ringer and is very deserving of her own happy ending. If you think that Marigold could be your next kitty, please call LAPS at 604 857-5055.

There’s a whole chapter [in the book] on the impact of animal agriculture on the environment.” Animal agriculture contributes more greenhouse gas to the environment than all forms of transportation combined, she added. “I’ve taken academic research and translated it,” Tallman noted. “Just to give you some facts to make you more aware.” “When we further add animal welfare to the equation – the suffering and death of over 70 billion farmed animals worldwide annually – we can no longer ignore the compelling evidence that a shift toward a plant-based diet is necessary for our planet’s sustainability. That is, if we are to achieve a livable future for our planet and all its inhabitants.” Find more information about the book at www. restoreourplanetdiet.com or to learn about transitioning to what Tallman describes as a crueltyfree diet visit the Langley Herbivores at: https://www. facebook.com/groups/ VEVEofLangley/, or contact her directly at pattallman@ shaw.ca.

“Townhomes are quite affordable and offer maintenance-free living,” said Urban Analytics managing principal Michael Ferreira. Surrey and Langley townhouses are proving popular with both younger residents with families and with older people downsizing from larger detached homes. “For the same price a buyer would pay for a one-bedroom condo in Vancouver or Burnaby, they could get a 1,300-1,400 square foot townhome in the Fraser Valley with a private at-grade garage and a little yard space,” Ferreira said. Ferreira pointed to a recent Willoughby townhouse development named

Townhouse projects like Exchange are being rapidly built. Exchange, which sold 28 units in its first month of marketing. Various stages of the project are under construction while others are finished. Townhouses, rowhouses, duplexes and other forms of multi-family housing are currently dominating new home construction in Langley Township. Langley Township building statistics showed that in the first seven months of the year from January to July, 625 multi-family housing units were created, including everything from a townhouse to a condo unit. In comparison, the Township registered the creation of 285 secondary suites and 168 single-family homes. All of those numbers were up sharply from last year. A

total of 1,090 housing units were created from January to July in 2015, compared to 670 in the same time period in 2014. This year’s development represents more than $89.5 million in multi-family housing being created so far in 2015. The bulk of the construction in Langley Township is going on in two neighbourhoods – Willoughby and Murrayville. Willoughby represents 56 per cent of all new housing being built in the Township, while Murrayville makes up 21 per cent. Walnut Grove and Aldergrove added about five per cent each, Brookswood three per cent, and the Township’s rural areas saw eight per cent.

I

t is pretty much a unanimous opinion – in today’s society, doctors, physiotherapists, and other health practitioners highly recommend that people be more active. That is something the Township of Langley takes seriously. The Township’s recreation, culture, and parks division is focused on building healthy communities, and helping individuals achieve their personal health and fitness goals by offering numerous fitness and wellness programs. One of those programs, which offers a great low impact workout with many health benefits, is Aquafit. “By actively participating in Aquafit classes, you can reduce joint and soft tissue stiffness, reduce stress and anxiety, and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, and other chronic health problems,” said Township aquatics programmer Nikole Longhi. “Not only that, Aquafit improves your aerobic capacity and endurance, muscle strength and flexibility, as well as your self-esteem.” hris Bisset, an avid Aquafit participant at the Walnut Grove Community Centre for more than 10 years, can testify to the physical and mental benefits of getting in the water for a workJUMP RIGHT IN out. “Why did I Aquafit is offered at two join Aquafit?

Now, thanks to a skillful surgeon and his advice, here I am at a hearty 76, pretty mobile, and on no medication.” isset said the surgeon fixed her arthritic hip, but it was the Aquafit instructors at the Walnut Grove Community Centre who kept her other joints and muscles supple and prevented her other hip from degenerating. “I know this to be true because if I miss too many sessions, I can start feeling the stiffness taking over,” said Bisset, who admits she had a few reservations to overcome before taking the plunge into Aquafit herself. “It is easy giving advice but harder to take it,” she said. “I didn’t want to go and buy a bathing suit and stuff my big body into it in front of these other ladies, but once I was in the water and felt it supporting my repaired hip, I was hooked. For just over $3 a time I could exercise for 45 minutes and socialize with the great

people I have with me in the pool. So my advice is to come and give it a shot,” Bisset said. “We encourage anyone, no matter what their age or ability, to come see us if you would like to improve your fitness level and enhance your health,” said Longhi. “The Township’s recreation, culture, and parks division has personal trainers, group fitness instructors, kinesiologists, and Aquafit instructors who are all certified, highly trained, and have a wealth of experience to share. Our staff are available to help you with your personal goals.” For more information on Aquafit classes offered at Walnut Grove Community Centre and at the W.C.

The students are from Kyoei Gakuen in Tokyo, and range in age from 14 to 17 years old. They came to Langley for several weeks to study English and soak up some of the local culture. In July, they came to Williams Park and met with residents of a Lower Mainland seniors home. The students made origami birds for the seniors and sat to chat with them, then sang their school song.

A garden party at the Langley Hospice Society offices last week was not so much about the dead and dying, but about the children who are left behind. The local organization held its third annual awareness and fundraising event Aug. 13, and during the outdoor festivities thanks were handed out to all the community heroes who help build a special garden in the backyard that is dedicated specifically to the child bereavement programs offered by hospice. When fundraising coordinator Shannon Todd Booth joined hospice three summers ago, the first big task she was handed was organizing a garden party. One of the next chores was helping turn a giant mound of dirt in the backyard into a magical sanctuary for children. The hospice residence for patients in the final stages of life are offered out of an interim facility called Maple Hill at Langley Memorial Hospital.

TECHNOLOGY

Makerspace about trying, failing, learning Engineers and enthusiasts come together at meetings for Langley’s makerspace. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A 3-D printer hums away quietly on a table, its extruder head laying down lines of red plastic. In the century old P.Y. Porter building in Murrayville, a group of high tech tinkerers have gathered to share their love of new technology. The three arms of the printer move back and forth, and a new component is slowly created. “It’s sort like making a dance in the air,” said David Wang, who is watching over the process. “It’s entertaining just to watch it.” Elsewhere on the upper floor of the building, people are working on laptops. Several people are working with Arduino microcontrollers. There is an industrial sewing machine in one room, and racks of tools and equipment. On a metal box sitting on a shelf has been written “Free beer to the one who fixes this!” This is Friday night at a weekly meetup of the Fraser Valley Makerspace, a Langley venue for people who like tinkering, learning, and building things. Makerspaces or hackspaces are a relatively new concept. There are a few around the Lower Mainland, but when a regular nearby meetup of makers and 3D printer enthusiasts transferred out to Vancouver, fans of the concept in Surrey, Langley, and Abbotsford had nowhere to go that was convenient to home. Mike Kirk managed to step in. The local man had rented office space in the P.Y. Porter building at Five Corners. The upstairs could be used for storing some tools and for regular meetings, and Fraser Valley Makerspace was born. Jason Grijzen, now on the group’s board, has a background in mechanical engineering and used to work in crane

Good hearing but trouble with conversation? A lot of people have trouble catching what people say, especially in group situations, despite having good hearing. What a lot of people don’t know is that this may be caused by damage to the so-called motor or amplifier function of special cells in the ear. A new type of hearing aid can help balance this out. A great many people have difficulty hearing others clearly on a daily basis. Bad acoustics, unclear pronunciation, background noise and music often make it challenging to catch what people say. This results in them having to repeatedly ask questions, straining to hear and perhaps increasingly avoiding discussions in large groups. As mentioned earlier, this may be caused by malfunctions in special cells in the ear. According to a theory proposed by hearing researchers, “motor cells” are a type of hair cell responsible for amplifying quiet sounds. They vibrate up to 20,000 times per second. If these hair cells do not work properly then

manufacturing. His company was scrapping old parts, and he wanted to donate them to someone who would make use of them. Looking online, he stumbled on the idea of makerspaces. “I thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever heard of,” Grijzen said. Unlike a lot of technology clubs or courses, the point of a makerspace isn’t to guide you through steps to a set goal. “It’s about making something,” said Grijzen. A member comes in with an idea, and they can use the makerspace’s tools, equipment, and collective wisdom to help make their idea a reality. There are people working on hats and fabric projects, electronics, chain mail, word clocks, silk screened shirts, and costumes based on popular video games.

good solution for most people.

Hair cells in the ear move very rapidly and can act as an amplifier or dampener. If these cells are damaged, they can no longer properly amplify speech and dampen loud noises.

creation of the club’s own variation on a 3D printer, also got into makerspaces out of curiosity and interest. He knew about 3D printers through his work in auto manufacturing. He put a printer to use for a minor household problem when a plastic component in a shoe tree broke. He couldn’t find a replacement, and didn’t want to throw out the entire object. “And then I thought I’d just print one out,” Wang said. This year he put his 3D printer knowledge to work helping out the Fraser Valley Makerspace. The group is currently selling kits of its own printers to help fund their endeavours. “We’ve sold eight so far, as of last week,” he said. The printers are cheap, at $530 each. “You have to build it, though,” said Wang.

This improvement in hearing can be achieved for some clients through the new Phonak Audéo V’s hearing aids. This cutting-edge hearing technology comes in a miniature casing that can significantly enhance the user’s ability to hear speech in company. The hearing aids attune to the person you are speaking to and can also recognize if ambient noise increases in the background.

Wes Barker has moved towards celebrity status after his televised audition for America’s Got Talent, and appearances on Comedy Network and Penn & Teller: Fool Us over the past few months. But the former Langley resident has never forgotten where he came from, which is why, once again, he performed his comical brand of street magic at Langley’s annual arts and culture festival. This time around, Barker swallowed a long balloon in just a few gulps and kept the audience guessing with sly card tricks. “They make it fun,” Barker said, on why

If you include the visual and performing artists, there were 260 participants at Saturday’s festival. “Considering the weather [threat of rain] held off, we’re having an excellent turnout,” organizer Teri James said late Saturday morning. “Actually this kind of weather is better than when it’s blistering hot so I’m delighted.” As for her own Arts Alive experience,

James’ day is “super busy” from seven in the morning until about 11 a.m. “Then I get a nice opportunity to walk around and make sure I say ‘hi’ to everybody at least once,” she said. t Arts Alive, Barbara Mallar and her cousin Anne Doubleday sold Greg’s Gear, hand-knitted and -crocheted socks, cowls, gloves, and children’s wear with proceeds going to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. One hundred per cent of what they sold went to Canuck Place in memory of Mallar’s son Greg, who died from brain cancer on June 29, 2011. Greg was 45. “He loved kids and we wanted to do something to honour him,” Mallar said. “He was just a good person, a really good guy.” “He always gave really big bear hugs,” Doubleday added.

Fellers ‘flexes’ to win World Cup American Rich Fellers and Flexible took top spot in a jump-off to capture a World Cup qualifier Sunday. PAMELA SAUNDERS AND TROY LANDREVILLE Special to the Langley Advance

It was a perfect 10 for Rich Fellers and Flexible at the $126,000 Longines FEI World Cup Qualifier at Thunderbird Show Park. The pair, partnered for a decade, bested a field of 26 competitors representing the U.S., Canada, Venezuela, and Mexico. With just three advancing to the jump-off, it was a heart pounding finish for the crowd as the 19-year-old Irish Sport

Horse sailed over the final fence with just a second to spare. The first clear ride of the first round came just past the halfway point when Will Simpson and his nine-year-old Oldenburg gelding, The Dude, didn’t touch a rail, earning cheers from the crowd. Five rounds later, Fellers and Flexible guaranteed the jump off. Canada’s Ben Asselin rounded out the trio, with Plume de la Roque, a 12-year-old mare. Riding first in the jump off, Simpson made no mistakes. Fast and clear to set the pace, he crossed the final fence at 41.71 seconds. “It’s great to be in the jump off when there’s only three, but that was the problem with these two guys. I’ve been watching Ben ride all week. He’s got an unbelievable quality ride going and it’s great to see a young guy work hard like that,” noted

On Aug. 12, the Vancouver Stealth announced they signed free agents Travis Cornwall, Colton Clark, and Adam Shute.

Simpson. “And Rich, he’s been haunting me my whole life. I love being in a jump off with him. He’s a great competitor and I don’t feel bad at all getting beat by a horse rider combination like that.” The 2012 FEI World Cup champions, Fellers and Flexible, were next in and ready to leave it all on the field. After a little rub on the second fence, the pair picked up a gallop and finished clear, bumping Will from top spot with a time of 40.51 seconds. “You always have an advantage when you can watch someone else go in and there’s no better rider in the world to watch in a jump off or speed class than Will Simpson – and that’s a pretty hot shot young horse he has there,” Fellers said. “I just stood at the back gate and watched every stride and every move he made. It gave me a feeling of where I needed to turn and how fast I needed to go to hopefully nip him. I got lucky.” Ben Asselin was last to ride, looking strong despite a rail down mid-course. For Fellers, the win aboard ‘Flexi’ is always sweet.

“It’s similar to any long-term relationship in life. You just have more knowledge, more experience, more details and you can anticipate the outcome better,” he explained. “I don’t really have to do anything differently than I did 10 years ago. He’s amazing, that’s all I can say.” Thunderbird Show Park president Jane Tidball said it was the “best day ever” at the park. “We’ve never seen show jumping this great here in Langley,” she said. Langley’s Andrea Strain, riding Djakarta, was the top local rider. She said Thunderbird presents a quality event, from the crowds to the team atmosphere. “It was a tough track out there, but the horses step up to the plate,” she said, adding, “I hadn’t done too many of these big tracks and it was big enough for me. A few of the early riders had some complications and for sure, there was a little bit of a doubt in my mind whether I should go. But the amazing thing about the horse that I have is that she gives me amazing confidence.” > More at langleyadvance.com, search “Thunderbird”

ATHLETICS

Langley’s Michael Dolfo ran the 100-metre, the 200m and the long jump in the Special Olympics portion of the Western Canada Games. For his hard work, he returned home with gold in each event. The Western Canada Summer Games was the largest multi-sport event ever to be hosted by the regional municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alta. More than 2,500 athletes from Canada’s four western provinces (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba) and three northern territories (Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut) competed in 18 sports Aug. 7 to 16. The 21-year-old Langley man was among them, there for six days and was brought up on stage during the Aug. 13 community celebration for three Special Olympians who competed at the World Games in Los Angeles recently. Dolfo enjoys competing. “It’s super fun,” the young man said.

Heather Colpitts Langley Advance

He was coached by Deborah Carter and Tom Norton. “They’re fantabulous,” Dolfo said. When he’s not busy with sports, he’s like so many other young people, wrapped up in social media and technology.

While he enjoys the track and field events, Dolfo doesn’t restrict himself. He’s also involved in basketball and swimming. “My goal is the Special Olympics [World] Games in 2019,” he said.

JUNIOR FOOTBALL

Rams couldn’t stop Sun from shining The Langley Rams fell to the mighty Sun Saturday in Kelowna. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Any questions about who currently rules the B.C. Football Conference were answered definitively on Saturday. The first-place Okanagan Sun improved to 4-0 on the season with a 32-13 victory over the Langley Rams at Kelowna’s Apple Bowl.

The defending BCFC champion Rams’ record dropped to 2-2 with the loss. The Rams had a terrific first half defensively, holding the Sun to a field goal to take a 6-3 lead into the halftime break. The Sun busted the game open in the third quarter by outscoring the Rams 21-7, and tacked on eight unanswered points in the fourth frame to close out the game’s scoring.

FINAL WHISTLE: This was the first meeting between the teams since the Rams edged the Sun 23-19 in the BCFC final to decide the Cullen winner last October in Kelowna. This Saturday, the Rams host the Westshore Rebels at McLeod Stadium. Kickoff is 4 p.m. and tickets can be had at the gate or at langleyrams.com. > More at langleyadvance.com, search for “Rams”
