Langley family claims $50 million prize HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The ticket was sold in Langley and the winners of the $50 million Lotto Max jackpot are local as well. Friedrich and Annand Mayrhofer and their son Eric Mayrhofer picked up their prize Tuesday. The $50 million pot was drawn for March 14, 2014. The family’s lawyer presented the winning ticket just five days before the March 2015 prize claim deadline. Why the delay? The family was wary of the notoriety that comes with such a big win. “We’re really private people, shy people” Frederich told the Langley Advance, “and we didn’t really know how to handle it.” He said they knew this would bring big changes to their lives. The family obtained advisors and signed over ownership of the ticket to a trust. Once BCLC validated the ticket as authentic, it initiated the prize claim verification process. The trust issue led to a lengthy review requiring the BCLC to consult with the InterProvincial Lottery Corporation (ILC), the national organization that oversees Lotto Max across Canada. In June 2015, BCLC, in conjunction with the ILC, concluded that only an individual or

In November, the Mayrhofers submitted a prize claim as a group. BCLC was then able to conduct a thorough review of this prize claim, verify the three as the winners. The ticket was purchased at the Murrayville Shoppers Drug Mart. In its statement announcing the win, BCLC said the pur-

chase of a lottery ticket means the buyer agrees to all that follows from a win, including consent of their name and photo to be made public. Public interest in this prize has been unprecedented. BCLC received 739 inquiries about this prize. A group of Shoppers coworkers in Burnaby fought amongst themselves when some assumed their ticket buyer

was keeping the prize for himself. BCLC CEO Jim Lightbody said there was no connection between the winning ticket and a lawsuit filed by a Shoppers employee against a co-worker, claiming the co-worker had won the prize. The family did lose out on about $500,000 in interest due to the delay. The Mayrhofer’s three children still live in the Lower Mainland. Frederich Mayrhofer is a retired steel fabricator. Married for 42 years he and Annand have lived in the same house for more than three decades. There’s no plans to move. The house will be renovated and Annand wants new furniture. “We’re thankful we have a big win,” he said, adding it allows for a better future for his whole family. Frederich has been playing the lottery for about 30 years. “I’ve won small prizes,” he said. But this one is a game changer. “We checked the tickets on the internet,” Frederich said. This wasn’t the first win. There’s been modest prizes, a $1,000 here, $3,000 there. “It was completely unexpected,” he said. “I was looking forward to a normal life.”

ASKING FOR SUPPORT

TRANSPORTATION

Signing petition helps DMD patients, says dad No free ride for Langley dad Uber in Township Ahopes for FDA Froese urged regulation for any ridesharing services in B.C. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley Township has asked the provincial government to regulate ride-sharing firm Uber, but that doesn’t mean council is eager to see it simply start offering rides. “It needs to be regulated,” said Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese. Earlier this month several Lower Mainland municipalities sent letters to the province about Uber and other for-profit ridesharing services. Uber is an app that allows users to summon a ride. Local drivers, in their own vehicles, pick up passengers and take them to their destinations. Payments are processed through Uber rather than being directly paid to drivers. Froese said the municipality has asked the province to look at ridesharing businesses like Uber, but that Uber is no different from any taxi company. He said there are issues such as background checks of drivers, vehicle inspections, licensing, training, and insurance that all need to be resolved. Froese said he believes Uber falls short on those measures right now. “I think Uber has a long way to go,” he said. If provincial regulations are changed and ridesharing services are allowed, the Township would treat it like any other cab company. If a ridesharing service started now without provincial authorization, it would contravene local bylaws, Froese said.

Langley’s Cam Penner is taking great lengths to help his 12-year-old son Doug, and others in his situation. Doug has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and is the face behind Ride for Doug, an annual fundraiser organized by Cam that takes motorcycle enthusiasts through the Fraser Valley. According to Muscular Dystrophy Canada, DMD is an inherited disorder. The muscles become weak-

er as the patient grows older. On Nov. 24, Cam flew to Washington, D.C., where he addressed the Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee about the impact that Drisapersen makes on Doug’s daily living. “The study we have been on since 2011 has finally reached the stage where the FDA needs to either approve or reject it,” Cam explained. “If approved, other boys with DMD will be able to access the same medication Doug has been taking.” Cam said a rejection “may spell the end to Drisapersen, and leave DMD boys with exactly zero approved treatments.” As with all experimental

To lend support, click on this link and fill in information to sign. For this effort to be effective, Cam said, people need to do two things: • Sign the petition. “The FDA won’t hear you if you don’t sign,” Cam said. • Then forward it on. “To get enough signatures, we need to spread the word. Forward this email, forward the link on social media, phone your grandma,” Cam said.

None.” Cam is asking for the public’s assistant in getting what he calls “life saving medication across this next hurdle.” “One thing I picked up at the FDA meeting last month is that they want to provide patients with a voice in the process,” Cam said. “I flew

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Food bank rolling again Thefts threatened Sources’ operations. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The Sources Langley Food Bank has seen a terrible run of luck turn into an outpouring of community support. On Friday, they suffered the first of two thefts when $1,000 worth of gift cards were stolen. Then the transmission in one of their vans blew out. On Monday, their larger delivery vehicle was stolen – along with a diesel card that the thieves used to run up a tab of $1,300. When Sources went public with their troubles early in the week, they found that many in Langley were willing to help them get back in full operation. “We’ve had amazing community support just in the last day and a half,” said Bruce Strom of Sources on Wednesday morning. “We just had Mercedes Benz come by this morning,” Strom said. The dealership has donated the use of one of its vans. “Willowbrook Chrysler did that yesterday.” Steve Phillips of Willowbrook Motors said they were glad

The food bank has had about $20,000 in donations since the thefts and other issues arose. Strom is still waiting to hear from ICBC about the amount of damage to the now-recovered stolen truck. They also need to get some important paperwork out of the van, which is currently in a tow yard in Surrey. Sources established a food bank in Langley a little over a year ago. It has already grown to serving up to 600 people each week during its Wednesday food pick up day.

Embarking on an embarassment

I

embarrassed myself last week. Embarrassing yourself is the worst kind of embarrassing. In fact, it’s the only kind. Nobody else can embarrass you. Sure, you can feel embarrassed for someone else. You can feel embarrassed when Uncle Charlie sings one of his goofy old songs in public, off key and with his horrible voice. But he’s not embarrassing you. He’s not even embarrassing himself. He’s just having a good time, and he’s doing nobody any harm in the process. If that tweaks your ego a bit, too bad. He’s not embarrassing you. You’re just being silly. No, embarrassing yourself goes much deeper than that. True embarrassment is a very personal thing, and has nothing to do with how other people perceive it. When I embarrassed myself last week, nobody knew about it except me. I didn’t even realize it at first – not until I was driving back from the dump, where I’d off-loaded a trailer full of limbs and branches that had been blown off our trees during the recent bevy of storms. For a week, I’d been picking up after the storms, muttering under my breath about the mess that the winds were making and all the time and energy it was taking to clear up the storm damage.

Odd Thoughts

he holidays are more than an obligation to give to others. They are also an opportunity to give to others. It is very easy to feel overwhelmed during the holiday season. Between work or school, family commitments, and the added stress of Christmas shopping, decorating, cooking, travel or welcoming relatives, it is all too easy to throw up your hands say ‘To heck with it!” The urge to simply crawl into a hole – or at least a bundle of blankets on the couch – and watch terrible movies on Netflix until the season is over is understandable. But rather than withdrawing, carve out a little time, or a few dollars, and reach out to do something for someone else this holiday season. The Salvation Army is, as always, looking for more people to crew its kettles around the community. Various food banks, Christmas Bureaus, empty stocking drives, and blanket and coat drives are all crying out for help in the form of lastminute donations. Giving back to the community, for many people, is seen as an obligation. At community newspapers, we see hundreds of ordinary local people every year who have volunteered their time and energy for everything from fundraising for disease research to helping pet shelters to aiding the homeless. As diverse as their interests are, they almost always give the same response when asked why they do it. “I wanted to give back.” Most of us in Canada are astonishingly fortunate. We live in a technologically advanced, wealthy, and prosperous society. Most of us are doing okay, even if it often seems as if we’re just scraping by. When we give to others, we give to ourselves. We give to the communities we live in, making them better places for our own and future generations. We gain the gift of new friends from our charity efforts. We gain the satisfaction of knowing that we are part of a wider community whose members care for one another. What better gift could there be? – M.C.

Letters to the editor

Just what do refugees get? Dear Editor, I am getting tired of seeing the same old racist e-mails that decry the generous amounts of money being given to incoming refugees, while allegedly cheating our veterans and homeless of their rightful financial care. Some of these have the refugee receiving over $2,400 per month in free money, given by our government. There is also a rumour circulating that the World Bank is somehow subsidizing Canada and other countries for accepting refugees. I have heard comments that the figures are fanciful, having been dreamed up by right wingers intent on stirring up discontent with any and all forms of government in Ottawa. I would be happy to see a detailed, researched article by one of your journalists on this subject.

My questions: 1. Can anyone in journalism shed some light of reality on the amounts offered to refugees, for basic upkeep and housing? 2. And for how long does this financial support continue? 3. Is any of it repayable? 4. Any truth to the rumour of payments to the Canadian government by the World Bank, for accepting refugees? I thank you for your consideration. Wayne Boylan, Aldergrove Editor’s note: Privately sponsored refugees do not receive resettlement assistance. Their sponsors have agreed to fund their care, lodging, settlement assistance and social support. Normally that support goes for 12 months or until the refugee becomes self-sufficient. That can be more or less than 12 months. Government-assisted refugees

can receive temporary support for clothing, food, shelter and basic household needs, including household goods, linen and furniture to start their new life. Under the Immigration Loans Program, some refugees can get a loan to pay for the cost of medical exams abroad, travel documents, transport to Canada, and housing rental, telephone deposits and work tools. The loans must be repaid. The BBC reported in October that the World Bank is looking at obtaining funds from wealthier nations in the Gulf region to provide financial help to Lebanon and Jordan because of the significant financial burdens of Syrians fleeing to those nations. The United Nations helps with funding when refugees live in temporary camps which are typically in countries adjacent to the conflict zone. Canada has none.

Dear Premier Clark, Mr. [Daryl] Plecas has written a report called Decision Time as a special independent advisor to you and the Minister for Children and Families. Unfortunately, Mr. Plecas presents a wide-ranging, biased survey of child welfare and politics, including a unilateral public assessment of the value of independent oversight and the performance of the current Representative for Children and Youth. We find this attack on this valued oversight role to be deeply offensive and inappropriate. Let us be clear in stating that we fully support the important work of the Representative for Children and Youth. The report references Grand Chief Edward John being brought on “to help find ways to address the over-representation of Aboriginal children in care.” We find this to be an attempt by Mr. Plecas to minimize a need

to consult with First Nations’ on these important issues by offloading and mischaracterizing Grand Chief Edward John’s important role as Special Advisor. We must point out that Grand Chief John has our support in his role as a Special Advisor to the Ministry of Children and Families. We take great offense at Mr. Plecas’ cavalier observation that the deaths and serious injuries to children known to the MCFD “occur rarely.” From July 2007 to September 2015 there have been 2,981 instances of critical injuries and deaths. To be clear, the MCFD is aware of 814 deaths and 2,077 critical injuries in the last eight years. For the current fiscal year of 2015-2016, there are 380 critical injury reports and 90 deaths of children in care. We need to bring closure and honour the grieving families.

Mr. Plecas confirms what the representative has already reported on extensively, that the MCFD budget has a shortfall of at least $100 million over the past number of years. We urge you to make immediate financial investments. More importantly though, we urge you to work with us to ensure those investments actually help First Nations children and youth. We have asked the representative to convene a meeting among herself, the First Nations Leadership Council, the First Nations Health Council and your deputies to discuss the state of child welfare and how to move forward in the most appropriate manner. This report represents a wasted opportunity to effect the positive change so desperately needed in BC. Sincerely, First Nations Leadership Council (signatory list online)

Be Prepared: Winter Driving Tips Working together, we can all make a difference to improve safety during winter snowfalls and storms. • Always check weather and travel conditions before heading out on the road; if they are bad, avoid travelling. • Plan your route ahead of time. Avoid any roads that may become dangerous during bad weather. • Reduce your speed to match road conditions. In winter, it’s safer to drive below the posted speed limit. • Keep at least four seconds distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. This allows plenty of room in situations where you need to brake suddenly on a slippery surface. • Watch for black ice. Slow down when approaching shaded areas, bridges and overpasses as these freeze sooner than others in cold weather. For more information on our winter program, visit tol.ca/stormresponse. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@LangleyTownship) for regular updates from the Township. And, to learn more about the Snow and Ice program, visit our YouTube channel for video demonstrations. Engineering Division 604.532.7300 opsinfo@tol.ca

ANNUAL PARADE AND FESTIVIES

Family focus

Aldergrove celebrates season

Check out some seasonal activities.

TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Saturday night’s cold rain and wind didn’t put a damper on the Aldergrove Christmas Light Up Parade, nor did the conditions prevent people from lining both sides of Fraser Highway in downtown Aldergrove to watch the entries roll past. The parade marked its 22nd year on Dec. 12 and was followed by a post-parade street party hosted by the Aldergrove Business Association (ABA). “From our standpoint, our community came through again, thick or thin, rain or shine,” parade organizer Karen Long said. “We donned our jackets and umbrellas and celebrated Christmas is Aldergrove.” A couple of the parade entries cancelled, but a couple more showed up, Long noted.

Colourful lights from a decorated semi truck reflected on the wet pavement during Saturday’s Christmas parade in Aldergrove. “The rain held out during the parade assembly so everyone had time to tweak their lights and decorations before the parade began,” Long said.

Property tax assessment The Langley Seniors Resource Centre, 20605 51B Ave., offers a free public workshop that includes the appeal process. It runs 1:30 to 3 p.m. Register: 604-5303020.

Santa Claus was accompanied by his two elves, Emily Nicholls and Jessica Evans, during the Aldergrove Christmas Light Up Parade.

The ABA did “another fantastic job” with the parade after party, complete with hot dogs served up by the Aldergrove Rotary and popcorn by the Otter Co-op, Long said. Studio One Dance Centre led the Flash Mob and held performances in the Aldergrove Mall parking lot. “The rain sure didn’t dampen their spirits,” noted Long. The Walt Levy Residential Light Up award was presented to Darren Pennington and Kassandra Ford. “They are new to our community and we are sure glad they are here,” Long remarked.

Murrayville’s paidcall firefighters will be out Saturday touring the neighbourhood starting at 10 a.m. They’ll be giving out candy canes and caroling. In return, they are hoping the public will come forward with donations of non-perishables for the Langley Food Bank. The Candy Cane Walk starts at Hall 6 and around the area including townhouse complexes in this new event sure to become a holiday tradition.

Among the best in the world: A group of 20 Langley tap dancers recently returned home from Germany with some serious bling to brag about. The local dancers were selected back in May to represent Canada as part of Team Canada Tap at the International Dance Organization’s World Tap Dance Championships in Riesa, Germany from Dec. 1 to 5. The junior formation team, seen above at the podium, placed third in the world for Swing Set. The junior’s small group also placed sixth with Cotton Eye Joe, while the adult formation team took seventh with Rockettes, and the adult small group earned 12th place with Billy-a-Dick. Names of the Langley participants are available at langleyadvance.com.

Eric Flowerdew of tipping off Langley City Mayor Sendall about a meeting between a Township council representative and municipal arbitration board appointee Len Greenwood. ˠ Plans for full double shifts at Langley High School were outlined to the school board by principal R.E.

Fifty Years Ago

December 16, 1965 ˠ With only one office up for election in Langley district, counting the poll was a simple task, and

in spring to provide “adequate parking in the downtown core for the present needs.” The committee, meeting twice monthly, identified traffic congestion as a major problem, while parking was already “adequate.”

Be Prepared: Winter Driving Tips Working together, we can all make a difference to improve safety during winter snowfalls and storms. • Always check weather and travel conditions before heading out on the road; if they are bad, avoid travelling. • Plan your route ahead of time. Avoid any roads that may become dangerous during bad weather. • Reduce your speed to match road conditions. In winter, it’s safer to drive below the posted speed limit. • Keep at least four seconds distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. This allows plenty of room in situations where you need to brake suddenly on a slippery surface. • Watch for black ice. Slow down when approaching shaded areas, bridges and overpasses as these freeze sooner than others in cold weather. For more information on our winter program, visit tol.ca/stormresponse. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@LangleyTownship) for regular updates from the Township. And, to learn more about the Snow and Ice program, visit our YouTube channel for video demonstrations. Engineering Division 604.532.7300 opsinfo@tol.ca

Friday, December

A dinner at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church is open to all Dec. 25. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Diana Laflamme has answered the call to take on the role of co-coordinator of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church’s Christmas Day dinner. It was an offer she couldn’t refuse. “Father Lawrence Donnelly said we needed someone to coordinate the dinner,” Laflamme related. She didn’t volunteer for the position right away. A week later, he asked again, “we really need someone to coordinate the dinner – someone who likes to organize and is bossy. You know who you are; God wants you.” Laflamme, who is coordinating the event along with Eugene Villanueva, chuckled, “I thought… it’s me… organized and bossy.” The free dinner in its 23rd year in the church at 20676 Fraser Hwy., and is open to anyone who is alone, or feels lonely on Dec. 25. The dinner is at 5 p.m. with the doors opening at 4 p.m. for fellowship and refreshments. “The premise is to feed the homeless but also to feed those who don’t have family, as well as seniors… all who feel they have the need.” Laflamme said. “They’ll have their Christmas dinner and some fellowship.”

Dinner is just part of the event. There will be entertainment during the meal. Much of the meal is being paid for out of the parishioners’ own pockets, by food donation or service. Fifteen turkeys and eight to 10 hams are being cooked for the dinner, along with all the trimmings. Laflamme is amazed by the amount of food and donations received for the dinner, and by the number of volunteers who have stepped forward. “They are everything,” she said. “I couldn’t do this without volunteers or donations. It’s taught me that I can’t do it all by myself; I need people to help me.” Roughly 25 people have volunteered as servers, said Laflamme, who added that other churches as well as people from outside the community have offered their assistance. “That’s what we’re supposed to be aiming for during the Christmas season, is fellowship with each other, every denomination, every race – everyone,” she said. Laflamme said Rev. James Kairu plans to help out as part of the dishwashing team. Monetary donations are appreciated. They can be made directly at St. Joseph’s from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Note that the church office is closed from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Transportation can be arranged for those who can’t make it there on their own, by calling 604534-3303.

MOLLY MAID Gift Certificates!

Willowbrook Shopping Centre’s charity gift wrap and coat/parcel check centre runs until Dec. 24.

Troy Landreville Langley Advance

Gift wrapping services start at $3 …continued from page A18

Among those helping out Saturday afternoon was WGSS Grade 12 student Josh Hall and 2012 grad Grace Li. Hall admitted he’s not the best wrapper: “I’m kind of in the middle but I’m volunteering for the library, to support it, get some funds in.” Li was a library assistant while at WGSS and is close to Proske, which is the reason behind her spending part of her Saturday wrapping gifts at the mall. “I really like wrapping things, so this has been a lot of fun for me,” the UBC student added. “This has always been my winter ‘finals’ season at school, so it’s kind of nice to have a day off where I’m not studying.” The centre is located next to Aldo in the mall. Gift wrap services start at $3 and all wrap, ribbon, and bags are eco-friendly. Coat/parcel check services are available for shoppers. The cost is $2 per item and also benefits the foundation.

Everyone loves coming home to a clean house. Give the gift of time to your loved one, so they can do something they actually enjoy while the professionals at MOLLY MAID make their home sparkle from top to bottom.

Eco-friendly alternatives A large amount of wrapping paper, especially paper with lots of tape attached to it, used over the holidays oftentimes ends up in the landfill. To stay environmentally friendly during the season, Langley Environmental Partners executive director Nichole Marples has these suggestions: • Try not to use too much tape when wrapping gifts, and remove the tape afterwards so the wrapping paper can be used again; and • Use gift wrap alternatives such as newspaper (which can be recycled), scarves or fabric, reusable cloth bags, towels, and plain kraft paper. “As long as it is not overly taped, it can go in recycling bin afterwards,” Marples said. As well, she suggested, consider gift certificates which can be inserted into a card and don’t require wrapping paper.

Reminders of Students dug out the art supplies to create unique cards for Canadian soldiers. HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Grade 2 students at Fraser Valley Elementary made Christmas cards and joined them together into a cheeful paper quilt. Other students at the Willoughby private school filled their cards with colourful images and holiday messages. In all, the students ranging from kindergarten to Grade 5 made about 110 cards which have been sent to Canadian soldiers serving overseas. “The students were really happy to do this,” said kindergarten teacher Leslie Fraser. “Some of the messages inside were so thoughtful and showed their gratitude for our troops.”

information on how to send items to military members abroad. The kids had to turn their attentions to Christmas and the holidays well before most had even though of making their wishlist for Santa. “The cards needed to be in at the end of November in order to get overseas in time for the holidays,” Fraser said. Fraser said the kids really connected with the idea that these military members who were working on behalf of Canadians. “Our school is quite a close community and we saw an opportunity to connect with another community and show our appreciation to them,” she added. “As an [International Baccalaureate] IB candidate school, it was a great opportunity for us to take action and send some holiday love to those who will not be with their families this holiday season.”

Fort Langley National Historic Site

People can roast chestnuts during Heritage Holidays at the Fort which runs Dec. 19 to Jan. 4.

HISTORY

Christmas of old How about salt meat, potatoes, fish and peas?

Christmas meals from the 1800s can’t hold a candle to today’s bounty but people can get a sense of historic times during Heritage Holidays at the Fort. The annual Christmas activities run Dec. 19 to Jan. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for Dec. 25, 26 and Jan. 1, when the site

is closed over the holiday season. There’s holiday scavenger hunts with candy cane prizes, Christmas tree decorating, heritage crafts, chestnut roasting, holiday photo stations and hot chocolate tasting. Regular admission rates apply for Heritage Holidays at the Fort, but alas, the fort no longer offers the menfolk rations of rum, a traditional Christmas custom from the 1800s HBC era.

(Left) Charlie, a seven-year-old Havanese Bichon, and his humans – David Mangal and Seetha Abeyesekera – took time out of their shopping at Willowbrook Shopping Centre recently to have pictures taken with Santa. They weren’t the only pet lovers there for photos. Owners of cats and rabbits also came to visit St. Nick during the three different photo sessions in November. The Jolly Old Elf and a few of his four-legged friends ‘paws-ed’ for photos at Barnes Harley-Davidson recently. Funds went to Pets & Friends, which provides free pet visitation to care facilities in the Lower Mainland.

Thursday, December 17, 2015 A23

Municipal lights illuminate holiday season Langley City spends weeks setting up displays. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Lighting up Langley City takes a lot of effort and starts fairly early in the holiday season. Every year, starting on Nov. 12, crews from the City are out stringing lights and mounting decorations on lamp posts. They have a lot to do, said Rick Bomhof, the city’s director of engineering, parks, and environment. There are 57 pole-mounted decorations, plus 274 street trees that get wrapped in lights. Then there are four civic facilities that are decorated with lights: City Hall, Timms Community Centre, Douglas Recreation Centre, and McBurney Lane, which also gets a Christmas tree in its garden beds. In addition, the City rents some of its lamp

standard decorations that are put up along the oneway section of Fraser Highway, and garland wraps some light poles. “We start the day after Remembrance Day, and we have them completed by the first day of December, in time for our own Christmas parade,” said Bomhof. Within that window of less than three weeks, five to seven parks workers have to get up the lights and garlands, all while doing their regular maintenance work, as well. The whole operation takes a bit of planning every year, Bomhof said. Then there’s the annual attrition of lights. “Every year you have to replace a certain amount,” Bomhof said. Some decorations suffer more than others. Last year a Nativity scene on the roof of City Hall suffered some damage in a windstorm. It was repaired and put back up this year, only for an early-December windstorm to damage it again, this time beyond repair. The annual effort costs SA_Sheild_CMYK.eps the City about $97,000, including $5,000 in elecSA_Sheild_CMYK.jpg

tricity for the lights alone, said Bomhof. The reward is to create a Christmas experience. “I think people do appreciate the look and the feel that it gives,” Bomhof said. Langley City puts up its seasonal displays, but Langley Township takes a different tack. The Township leaves neighbourhood decorations to the various business and merchants associations in its neighbourhoods. Merchants can put up lights and decorations, and the Township covers the annual electrical bills. The Township has also long supported Christmas in Williams Park, a largely volunteer-driven effort that creates a massive light display that visitors can drive or walk through, complete with inflatables and illuminated painted cut-outs. Numerous Langley residents also light up their homes every season. Check out some of the prominent local homes below, and send us your own address if you have a brightly-lit home and yard as SA_Sheild_Grey.eps well, for inclusion in ourSA_Sheild_Grey.jpg last listing.

ROADSIDE SAFETY

Say no to drinking & driving this holiday season.

This holiday season we’re asking everyone to share the responsibility of being the designated driver. Is it your turn to get your family and friends home safely? We want you to enjoy the season with your loved ones and have a great time. If your festivities involve alcohol, here are a few tips to help make sure everyone gets home safely: • If you’re hosting a party, show your appreciation to the designated drivers by serving a variety of nonalcoholic drinks. Try getting creative with “mocktails” – great tasting drinks made without alcohol. As a responsible host, make sure your guests have alternatives to get home safely. Call a cab, set money aside for transit or if necessary, let your guests stay overnight. Plan your safe ride home before you start drinking. If you’re going to

PIONEER REFLECTIONS

Holiday about food, family A Langley Lodge resident recalls past Christmases.

Phyllis Waugh, with a little aid from her daughter Lois Edwards, shared memories of Christmas past.

ROXANNE HOOPER rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Well into her 93rd year, Phyllis Gertrude Waugh’s best memories of Christmases past to present revolve around food and family. The youngest of four siblings, Waugh was born in Saskatchewan and at age 12 moved

Roxanne Hooper Langley Advance

to South Langley with her father, mother, and older brother. That was 1935 – and as she recounts times were tough in the midst of

Come and see how good life can be for Seniors! Have a Merry Christmas! and then… A Happy New Year! by moving to

the Great Depression. “We didn’t get much because there wasn’t the money around then… we were brought up pretty skimpy, as you might say,” Waugh recalled of her Christmases on the Prairies and and early years in Langley. As a child, she doesn’t remember ever having a trees or gifts to mark Christmas. But what she fondly remembers through all the decades is how this holiday brought her family together. Entertaining inside her sixth-floor room at Langley Lodge late last week, Waugh shared some of those memories of Christmases past with the Langley Advance, turning occasionally to her daughter Lois Edwards to help jog her memory. “Back then, very few people had money for extras,” Waugh recounted. “We all just came together… It was about people… and we always had lots to eat.” One aspect of the holidays, which she remember vividly, is the extra efforts her mother took to make Christmas Day special. For instance, Mom always served up a “delicious” dinner – some years that meant turkey, complete with gravy and vege-

tables – while other years it was a simpler meal, Waugh recalled. “She always made Christmas special for us.” Likewise, Edwards said Waugh has kept those traditions alive for future generations. Waugh always sewed clothing for her kids, always did lots of baking – her personal favourite being her Christmas cake – and, always brought the family together for the holidays. Today, with four children, four grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and two great, great-grandchildren in her posse, Waugh said her favourite part about Christmas has remained unchanged. She still longs to see her family – or at least all those who can make it – together to share a meal and merriment of the season. She’s looking forward to this year’s feast, being held this weekend at Edwards’ home. At least 14 of her family members are expected to attend. Without question, Waugh said, she is looking forward to some turkey, some Christmas cake, and the camaradarie. “I’m looking forward to just the family being together.”

Charlie never had another Christmas tree until he was 24, recently married, recently discharged from the air force, and settled in Vancouver with his new bride. “I don’t remember actually going out to get our first tree,” he said. But Charlie is confident he went deep into the woods and cut down a “doozie” of a tree and started a tradition he still cherishes today. All these years later, he’s not cutting down his own tree anymore. But he has an artificial, table top Christmas tree that helps make his room at the Langley Lodge a little more festive. And he enjoys hanging out in the main hall at the seniors facility, near the communal Christmas tree and the piano often used for carols. While Charlie has outlived two wives, he still has two sons, three grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren, and is spending the holidays with some of his clan.

Charlie Delves shares his love of carols and Christmas trees.

evo Agro Inc., a Langleybased propagation facility operated in the heart of Milner, is growing. It’s already the largest supplier in North America of propagated plants, but Tuesday this company announced plans for an $8-million and eight acre expansion. Once complete, Bevo’s facilities will encompass about 53-acres of state-ofthe-art greenhouses, explained president Jack Benne. Bevo’s expansions are driven by increasing client demands for quality, disease free propagated greenhouse and production crops, he said. Bevo Agro currently operates 45 acres of greenhouse facilities on 98 acres of land in Langley, plus another 20 acres in Pitt Meadows. Their main products are vegetable plants such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, as well as bedding plants, flowers, and grasses. They market products to established greenhouse growers, nurseries and retail outlets throughout North America. Way to grow, guys. Keep up the great work.

I have had this Christmas plant for many years and it used to flower in December. For the past two years it has stopped flowering. I gave it plant food but

still no flowers.

Your plant sounds like a Christmas cactus. It probably stopped flowering because of heat and blistering sun from the two years of long sum-

mer droughts. In hot summers, they need a shadier spot. Christmas cactus like warm but not hot places. They don’t object to occasional bright light but long spells of strong sun-

shine make them sick. Though from South America, it’s not a true cactus. It’s a rainforest plant (epiphyte) used to growing on trees and rocks in humid air and partial shade. Food comes

Gardening in Langley

Lots of sun not always good for plants

is enough. Christmas cactus roots are mainly hold-fasts so foliar fertilizer diluted and sprayed on the leaves also works well. They mustn’t sit in liquid or their roots could rot. Let them out for a few days then water. Dear Anne,

I need to move a hellebore. When is the best time?

Pat, Langley

The best time to move hellebores is right after the flowers die back. That’s usually spring. That’s only good if we have normal rainfall in spring. If next year’s summer drought starts early, will you be able to keep it watered often? Hellebores hate being moved and take a very long time to recover. If your hellebore is a Hellebore orientalis, these are the most drought-tolerant of any of them. It may still need to be watered two or three times a week for months after being moved. Grey water is fine for hellebores. Adding some manure or compost to the hole would help both for nutrition and water retention. Bonemeal would also be useful. Dear Anne,

I have a houseplant which is supposed to be a split-leaf philodendron. It has lots of new leaves but only three have split. My last philodendron had masses of leaves that split. How can I nudge this one into action?

Lesley Morris, South Delta

Split leaf philodendrons don’t usually split much until they’re mature. But also the right light level is important. If the light is too dim, they may not split. But direct, hot sun burns the leaves. The ideal window would have bright light but your philodendron should not feel the sun on itself. If all you have is south or west windows, you could position your philodendron farther into the room away from the window. The alternative may be the least dim window you have and waiting for it to mature. Anne Marrison is happy to answer gardening questions. Send them to amarrison@shaw.ca

Eagles soar

TROY LANDREVILLE sports@langleyadvance.com

Greg Song snapped a 2-2 tie to lift the Langley C3 Eagles to a 3-2 win over West Kelowna on Sunday afternoon, in the championship game of a bantam hockey tournament in Kelowna.

So-so weekend

The Langley Rivermen have an early Christmas present for junior A hockey fans: free admission to all three of their home games at the Langley Events Centre this weekend. The “Three Days Of Rivmas” starts Friday with the Rivermen hosting the Powell River Kings at 7:15 p.m., continues Saturday at 6 p.m. versus the Coquitlam Express, and wraps up Sunday at 3 p.m. when the ’Men take on the Prince George Spruce Kings in their final game before Christmas break. At all three games, each fan will receive a $5 concession voucher. “It’s a great time,” Rivermen head coach Bobby Henderson said. “We expect decent crowds and we’ll do our best to put on good show.” For those people who haven’t been to a game this year, Henderson said, “I think they’ll be impressed by the entertainment level.” Going into the weekend, the Rivermen sit third in the B.C. Hockey League’s Mainland Division with an 18-13-1 record.

The Rivermen will be looking to right the ship this weekend after losing 7-4 at home to the Vernon Vipers this past Saturday at the LEC, and tying the Surrey Eagles 3-3 on Sunday at South Surrey Arena. Versus Vernon, the Rivermen couldn’t recover after spotting the visitors a 4-0 lead in the first period. “We were as bad as we could be,” Henderson said, regarding the slow start. “It was one of those things where, when you play one game in 13 days, it’s tough to have the compete level where it needs to be.” Henderson was happier with the Rivermen’s effort against a Surrey team that has struggled with a 5-27-1 record, thus far. “A tie is a tie but it was a good hockey game,” Henderson said. “Give them [Surrey] credit: they played hard had and we had to battle for what we got. It was also a good crowd there which is nice to see.”

“A great tournament win by a hard working group of young men that truly care about their teammates on and off the ice,” Langley coach Clark Kemp said. “It was a great effort to go undefeated and win the championship game.”

Langley swimmers shone at Christmas Cracker meet. Four Langley Olympian Swim Club members had one cracker of a weekend in Victoria, recently. Reese Blunden, 12, Renae Ledoux, 16, Hugh McNeill, 12, and 17-year-old Hillary Metcalfe each came away with one or more gold medals from the Christmas Cracker Swim Meet hosted by Pacific Coast Swimming. A large Olympians contingent competed at the meet along with over 800 athletes from all over B.C. and three teams from Alberta. The short course (25-metre pool) meet consisted of heats and finals over three days. With the meet being so large, all swimmers needed to race fast to make a finals swim. LOSC swimmers were in top form and many of them made it to finals and into the top three spots. Top three finishers included: First place Reese Blunden in the 12 & under girls 800 freestyle; Renae Ledoux in the 15 & over girls 100m and 200m breaststroke swims; Hugh McNeill in the 12 & under boys 1500m freestyle and 100m backstroke; and Hillary

Metcalfe in the 15 & over girls 200m IM.

Second place Ren Bedard, 12, in the 12 & under girls 200m and 800 freestyle events; Bailey Herbert, 13, in the 13-14 year old girls in the 400m IM and 200m breaststroke; Brayden Kells, 14, in the 13-14 year old boys 50m and 200m breaststroke swims; Joshua Kim, 13, in the 13-14 year old boys 50m freestyle; Hugh McNeill in the 200m backstroke and 400m IM; Hillary Metcalfe in the 50m breaststroke, 100m breaststroke, and 200m breaststroke; Justin Schramm, 17, in the 15 & over boys 400m freestyle, 200m fly, and 400m IM; and Dylan Thomas, 12, in the 12 & under boys 1500 freestyle.

Third place Ren Bedard in the 50m, 100m, and 400m freestyle swims; Chelsea Borrowdale, 16, in the 15 & over girls 100m and 200m breaststroke events; Michael Chung, 11, in the 12 & under boys 50m backstroke; Mia Goretic, 12, in the 12 & under girls 200m freestyle; Bailey Herbert in the 100m breaststroke; Joshua Kim in the 100m breaststroke and 100m freestyle; Renae Ledoux in the 50m breaststroke; Hugh McNeill in the 400m freestyle; and Hillary Metcalfe in the 400m IM.

Brayden Kells set a new LOSC record in the 13-14 year old boys 200m breaststroke

with a time of 2:30.15, and Joshua Kim broke a club record in the 13-14 year old boys 100m breaststroke with a time of 1:07.68. Selina Schmelcher, 11, achieved three B.C. AAA times at the meet in order to qualify for the 2016 BC AAA Short Course Championships in Victoria in March. “This was a tough meet for our swimmers but they produced some excellent racing, achieving lots of best times,” Olympians head coach Brian Metcalfe said. “It was good to see so many of them reaching the podium.”

Youngsters shine

Meanwhile, a team of 10 & under LOSC were in Richmond at the VPSC/Rapids 10 & under Meet. Each swimmer competing had to swim five events over the course of the afternoon. The aggregate scores of all five events determined the places at the end of the meet. Piyush Kaul, 10, placed third overall in the 10-year-old boy’s category. Piyush also set a new club record in the 9-10 year old boys 50m fly in a time of 36.04 seconds. Madison Belgica, nine, placed fifth in the 9 & under girls event and Alicia Schmelcher, nine, placed sixth.

Whiskey and Sambuca These handsome boys came to us with a few war wounds and un-neutered. Soon after intake we tested them and they came back positive for FIV. Douglas College kindly donated their time and took care of the boys’ neuters and tattoos as well as blood work and dental cleanings. FIV is contagious to other felines through deep bite wounds, so we are looking for a home that doesn’t have any other cats, or someone who has cats that already have FIV. Whiskey and Sambuca are currently living together and would love for you to come visit with them. Many people turn the other way and look at other “healthy” cats, but with regular vet care and a nice indoor home, we are confident that our little men can live happy, normal lives.

Hazel Paprika

Paprika is a good-natured, cheerful and friendly dog! This young girl is looking for a home that enjoys a very intelligent determine beagle that follows her nose. She is not particularly interested in spending time with children. Paprika struggles with being left alone and needs someone who has lots of time for her.

Hazel is a sweet little dilute calico mix. She came to us after her human could no longer keep her. She was well loved and is now looking for her last great home. She is a senior so she is looking for a home to share her golden years with. She enjoys brushing and would love nothing more than to snuggle with her new family. Older kids could be an option if they are respectful of her, she did come from a quiet home, so she is hoping for nothing too rambunctious.

Lucky Lucky is a handsome 10 year old black kitty. This middleaged guy came to us after his family had fallen on hard times and could no longer keep him. He had lived with kids in his previous home and would love to hang out with all of the children and friends during birthday parties and playdates. Don’t be alarmed by his brown pigment in his eyes, the vet says that it is just cosmetic and doesn’t cause him any vision loss. Lucky is very affectionate and would love nothing more than to snuggle up with his new family. Dogs and cats could be an option in his home.
